Odd Figure Has Stuck to His Excellency During His
Career.     Canadian Club addressed at Cumberland

Jlrs.  H. Farmer was hostess at c
For the second time within a space
of one year tt has been the privilege
of the Comox District Canadian Club
to entertain a Governor-General of
this vast Dominion In the Ilo-llo hall,
Cumberland. Just prior to leaving
for England, after a term of five
years as Canada's Governor-General,
• Baron Byng of Vimy, who was a guest
of Lt.-Col. Charles W. Villiers at
Beaufort House, addressed tbe district
Canadian Club, nnd memories of his
visit are still cherished by the members. On Monday evening last, His
Excellency Viscount Willlngdon, successor to Baron Byng, addressed the
club at a large dinner held in the
popular dance hall of the llo-Ilo.
Members of the club, along with their
friends, to the number of one hundred
and fifty, sat down to a sumptuous
repast, and at the same time giving
the Governor-General a wonderful
welcome. On the conclusion of tin
supper,'the president of the Club, Dr.
G. Ker MacNaughton, welcomed' His
Excellency to the district.
Dr. MacNaughton reviewed the ac
tlvitles of the Governor-General during his sojourn ln the southern part
of tbe Island, which, he said, had beer
followed locally with a great deal ol
Interest, and whilst the Comox District Canndian Club was not in th'
position to make His Excellency r.
freeman of the city of Cumberland
nor a "Chief Rainbow" of any tribe
yet their welcome to His Excellency
was none thc less slncree. He then
turned to His Excellency, and on behalf ot the Canadian Club, extended
to bim greetings with the hope that
his stay in this vast Dominion as
Governor-General would be most successful, and that he and Viscountess
Willlngdon would be most happy in
this, the largest of His Majesty the
King's, dominions.
The Governor-General, on rising to
address the assembled guests, was
greeted with a great deal ot applause
and lt was some time before he could
proceed. He said, "Mr. President,
ladles and gentlemen, I want to thank
you most heartily for your welcome
and the very sincere way In whicli
you have received me this evening,
and I can assure you it affords me a
great deal of pleasure to receive such
a welcome from the Comox District
Canadian Club."
One  thing  which   His  Excellency
said had struck his as rather remarkable while he had been in Canada,
was tbe number of Canadian Clubs
stretching from coast to coast. He
had addressed a great many of them
they all seemed to want him to address thom, but. however on earth hc
wos going to sny anything new to a
Canadian Club six months from now
was a great puzzle to him. Speaking
In a humorous vein, the Governor-
General said that he thought that the
problems due to the lack of popula
tion on Vancouver Island would soon
be remedied, because wherever he
went he saw such an enormous number of children, and since be had been
the means of their having holidays
wherever he went he was sure that ii
the children had votes he would bc
elected to any office to which he
might aspire. He was very proud
Indeed, he said, to have had an oppor-
.unity of getting In closer touch with
the affairs of Vancouver Island nnd
he was delighted to see the splendid
loyalty shown on every side.
His Excellency said, as a newcomer
to Canada, he had been impressed
with its vastness and its enormous
resources, and touched briefly upon
the possibilities of lumbering, fishing,
and raining. He saw lt reported that
an English syndicate was going to
spend a hundred million pounds in
Quebec and he thought they should
make It their business to induce another syndicate to spend another
hundred millions on the resources of
British  Columbia.
But In a country so vast, where one
province was so hugely separated
from the other, they were, naturally,
rather Inclined to miss a national outlook and become rather local. He
conceived It ns part of his duty ns
representative of tho King to travel
about ae many parts of Canada as
possible, to find out tbe necessities of
the people and to impress upon them
that they were all members of one
great community for a common purpose.
HIS LUCKY TlllllTKKN
The Governor-General said some of
his friends had pointed out to him
Ihat he was Canada's thirteenth Governor-General. To him (the speaker)
It  wus a sign  of good luck  and a

THE C.H.S. "CHRONICLER"
(Cumberland High School)
L. H., Editor
AN ANSWER TO "AN ANSWER"
Judging from the article appearing
In The Islander under the caption
"An Answer, by the Telescope," our
contribution In a previous issue entitled "Religion, by the Chronicler
Editor" appears to have started something In the nature ot a religious
controversy.
After carefully considering the advisability of refutation nnd rejoinder,
we have come to the conclusion that
nothing Is to bo gained by religious
disputes In a small town.
Bitter experiences of past history
teach us that a relatively few years
ago, one who had the temerity to give
vent to any view or opinions which
were nt vorlance with or obnoxious to
orthodox religion was answered most
effectively by the thumb screws, dls-
embowellment, Ihe gallows, bablnes,
the stake and other persuasive methods, some of which are unprintable.
Present day experience teaches us
that such temerity Is nearly always
met by attacks far more conspicuous
for their covert sneers, acrimony nnd
bucolic personalities than for Ihelr
logic, of which they sometimes show
a ludicrous lack. Indeed, ns much
U we would welcome an Interchange
of Ideas, yet circumstances decide
otherwise. Hence our decision to
avoid the risk of Incurring such un-
pleasantries which can be of no profit
to the readers of this paper. In other
words, It is our policy to avoid petty
village squabbles.
SENSATIONAL TRIAL!   SCANDAL!
A well known pillar ot the press
was tried and convicted ln one of the
most sensational trials held ln Cumberland.   This Inoffensive creature, a
mere snivelling high school boy, was | Greek to a deaf Chinaman

crime af publishing his opinions  in I said  he, fixing a stern  judicial eye
the "Chronicler." The article in ques- (Continued on Page Five)
tlon, a recent one, in some unexplaln-
able manner conflicted with and was
obnoxious to tbe orthodox beliefs of
some worthy citizens. The prisoner
was arraigned before Judge Bigot.
The scene was Impressive, with the
stem, terse browed accusers bringing
forth sheaves of evidence, and the
editor listening with callous indifference. Close observers noticed that
the prisoner flinched when one wit'
ness described how he was passing
down the back alley and saw the
editor breaking the Blue Laws by
whistling nnd cutting wood at the
same time, a double crime which the
worthy Judge said tripled the penalty.
Of course It was understood tbat the
prisoner could not defend himself.
"For," said his Honor, "you nre in
error and have strayed from the stony
path, therefore wo are Incontestably
right and you arc wrong." Tills Is
logic with a vengennco.
The prisoner enst one glance round
the courtroom, saw the stem looks
ot disapproval, the open-mouthed
curiosity, as If be were a zoological
specimen, and forthwith gnve up ull
hope.
In his address to the jury, his Honor heatedly denounced thc right of
thinking contrary to orthodox belief

UNION BAY MOVES
TO VANCOUVER
UNION BAY, April tl.—A well-
known figure has just left thc Bay In
the person of Mr. Alexander JIcLeod.
who, with Jlrs. McLeod, left yesterday to take up residence in Vancouver, owing to continued Ill-health of
  Jlr. JIcLeod.

after the strictest Inquiry. Speaking
of this clause, Trustee MacKinnon
said that "putting the matter In plain
words, It simply means that the Board
will probably have to dispense with
a supervising principal, one teacher
less in the High School and maybe
one less In the Public School." Reorganization of thc school along these
lines may have to be made for next
term; nt any rate, nothing can be
done before then as It.would not do
to rearrange the staff and classes for
the remaining three months of this
term. The whole matter will be gone
over carefully at the Jlay meeting,
and in the meantime the Trustees
deem it advisable to furnish all support possible to the City Council in
the latter's efforts to have the Government reverse the decision to take
monies collected by luxation in the
outside school urea of Cumberland,
as outlined in these columns last
week.
Another communication was from
the head of the British Columbia
Cadet Corps at Esquimalt, asking tlie
aid of the Trustees in organizing *,
cadet corps in Cumberland. The letter noted that funds for cadet servics
have been materially increased this
year, and in view of this fact the
present would be an opportune time to
organize the movement in this district. Cadets would receive most of
their training In Cumberland, winding

prettily decorated clothes basket con-
up with a six weeks' course at Esquimau, during which time all expenses
ure paid and the Individual cadet may
earn in the neighborhood of $100. The
Trustees made no comment on tho
letter, turning it over Instend to the
teaching staff for their perusal.
One other communication was In
the nature of an offer to the School
Board of u house which the owner
opined would be most suitable for
domestic science quarters. Tbe house
Is located very close to the schools,
and a reasonable price wns asked by
the owner, but the Trustees took no
action, Evidently it is the Intention
of tbe Board lo house thc domestb
science classes on property now belonging to the schools.
The publlc school report showed for
.March u total of 9750 attendances,
249 perfect attendances, 477 pupils,
59 lates, and an attendance percentage of 81.3, It was also stated that
efforts are being made to Introduce
lacrosse us a school game, and some
comment was also made on the
Strathcona Trust award. Mr. Apps
personally guve particulars of tho
Canada Bee contest to be held at Royston next Monday and asked for a
donation from the Board in order to
procure some little prize for the Cumberland pupil making the highest
points.   The Trustees voted $6.00.
Jlr. James Jl. Patterson's report of
his recent inspection of the public
school was read by the secretary. The
report was most favorable and was
the source of great satisfaction to
the School Board.

The Indians of British Columbia
are in a better position today as regards flshlng thun they have been for
a nurnbtn* of years, W. R. Dltchburn,
commissioner of Indian affairs for
Britisli Columbia, told the Joint committee of the House of Commons and
the Senate Investigating British Co-
lumbln tribes. Improvement in the
sltuution wns due, he said, to the
elimination of a large number of
Japanese from  the industry.
Ho admitted that the Interpretation
of the game laws sometimes reacted
unfnvorubly in regard to the Indians
and that some ground existed in
isolated cases for complaints regarding water rights. a
Rev. P. Kelly, chairman of the executive of the allied tribes of British
Columbia, placed before the committee a resume of ancient treaties which
he said proved tbe right of Indians

transferred him bodily to the pantry, where he
was confronted with a tin milk kettle.
"You go over to the grocery, young man, and
get me two quarts of milk, and if you ain't back
in five minutes by the clock, you'll think a hull
band of Comanchy Indians are after you."
He went. His dream of peaceful and beautiful border life was rudely shatte'red, but such is
the wonderful elasticity of a raw boy that he had
won a bet on a dog-fight in the alley, and made
an engagement to sail as first mate on a private
river craft, and was back on time with that milk.
Taking things easy is one of the natural perquisites of pure unadulterated boyhood.
He was only a boy. He had taken the softest seat
in the room hung his cap on the floor, and was
buried six feet deep in a wild Indian noveline,
when his mother's
AN IDYL OF BOYHOOD voice rung like a
war-whoop through
his hair. "J-o-h-n H-e-n-n-e-r-y I" He was reading just then with all the sweet abandon of his
years this thrilling passage:
"Clad in a checked suit and a Colt's revolver
he climbed on the table, and in five minutes he
had cleaned out the entire ranch. The Indians
were so thrilled and awe-struck by his youthful
bearing that they allowed him to capture them
on the spot, and he marched them all single-
handed to the impromptu dungeon in the rear of
the cow shed—"
"J-o-h-n H-e-n-n-e-r-y!"
"The Governor of the State heard of the brave
boy's action and sent him a letter of thanks containing a check for $1,000 and a silver-plated
shield with—"
At this moment something struck John Henry
on the ear, lifted him easily from his seat and
We call this the age of new things. New inventions, new thought, new religion, new methods,
new ideals. Yes, and new troubles and complaints.
One reading much of the litera-
NEW THINGS ture of the present age might
be led to think that folks living
in the centuries past knew nothing, aspired to
nothing, cared for nothing, had no troubles and
gave voice to no complaints. A perusal of thc
history of man, however, will reveal that in mechanical inventions, discovery of a few natural
laws and the method of application of them to
man's need are about the only things we have.
Most of the new thoughts are old thoughts, but
clothed in up-to-date language. Most of the so
called new religions are the revival of exploded
follies.
We have not experienced any great ills, nor
do we have complaints which have not been the
general complaints of man as far back as his
history reaches. Take taxes as an illustration.
A historian of ancient times says, "taxes are the
perpetual theme of popular complaint." They
always have been and they always will be. No
government can run without taxes and no system
of taxation can please everybody.
The conditions that make man happy today
are as old as the consciousness of the human race.
Man has to fit these eternal truths into whatever
circumstances of life he meets.
Truly did the wise man say, "There is nothing
new under the sun," and our need is to grasp the
meaning of the difference between what we think
is a new thing which is usually a different manifestation of an old one.
HOME COOKING SALE
PROVEDSUCCESSFUL
The Pythlsn Sisters met with great
success at their sale of home cooking
and afternoon tea ln the Fraternal
Hall on Wednesday. A large and
varied assortment ot good things
was on display when the sale opened,
but were soon snapped up by the
eager buyers. Ticket No. 172 won
the luncheon set, Master Franklyn
Smith, of Courtenay, being the lucky
holder. Miss Jennie Bogo, with No.

was also raffled.

Coming Week
Ilo-llo Theatre
"Silence" Written by Expert
"Silence," the Max Marcln play
which ran for a year to large crowda
on Broadway, was adapted tor the
screen by Beulah Marie Dix. Cecil
B. DeMille supervised the production.
Vera Reynolds and H. B. Warner have
the featured roles. It will be on view
at the Ilo-llo theatre this Friday and
Saturday. It ls a story of the underworld, exciting and thrilling.
SWIFT MOVING DRAMA
A genius of evil; a stupid, ferocious
man-beast subject to his will; and a
clever but innocent-looking dog wise
in the ways of crime. Such ls the
diabolical trio who throw their web
of criminal daring over the great city
of London ln "While London Sleeps,"
the Warner Bros, production starring
Rin-Tln-Tin, which comes to the Hollo Theatre on Monday, April 11th.
This melodrama of Llmehouse, sinister underworld of London, was written and directed by Walter Morosco,
and Is said to give Rlnty an opportunity to surpass all previous characterizations.
Helene Costello and Walter Merrill
play the leading human roles, of a
lovely girl kidnapped by a master
criminal; and her detective-lover, who
rescues her from the brutal clutches
of a notorious gangster.
Otto Mattiesen appears as the leader of the daring gang and George
Kotsonnros as his right-hand man,
half-beast, half-human, and wholly
horfible. John Patrick plays tbc
man who "peaches" on the gang, one
of his first characler roles. The remainder of the cast Includes Dewia
Jennings, Carl Stockdale and Les
Bates.
The thrilling story of a wonderful
j dog. torn between two mighty loves
and burning with a fearful hate; of
sinister daring and cruelty; of mystery and murder—"While London
Sleeps" has been hailed by critics In
other cities as one of the swiftest
moving of screen dramas.
the government In tlielr criminal
practice, there Is a delightful romanct
as well.
The entire cast Is excellent, nnd Includes Heinle Conklin, Pat' Hurtlgan
W. A. Carroll, Lew Harvey, Eugene
Palette, Pat Harmon and David "Ito
Klrby. "The Fighting Edge" Is L
perfect picture for those who enjoy
fast-moving melodrama.
—ANNOUNCEMENT—
Oh Sin, Where is Thy Sting?
That's Lew Cody's Version
The wages of sin may be death In
real life, but it Is popularity and good
fortune for Lew Cody on the screen.
Since Cody has forsaken leading
roles and become one ot the polished
cinema rascals he has far eclipsed
his popularity ot other days.
Starting with "Souls for Sale," In
which he played his lirst "heavy,'
Lew has built for himself a tremendous following, although he has played
nothing but villains.
His latest part, which combines
knavery with comedy, Is In Marshall
Neilan's Motro-Goldwyn-Mayer production. "Thc Sporting Venus," the
attraction at tho Ilo-llo Theatre on
Tuesday, April 2nd.
"ln thc ordinary movie plot then
Is very littlo opportunity for a leading man to vary his characterization,'
says Lew. "Tho heavy, on tho other
hand, can be many varied types.
Wallace Beory Is a good eample of
this. He has played brutal heavies,
comedy parts, Ineffectual boobs, and
consequently Is more popular than n
lot of leading men."
The management of the Ilo-llo ami
Gaiety Theatres has arranged for the
flrst showing of the William Fox
production "Over the Hill" at the
Gaiety Theatre on Thursday, April 14
and at the Ilo-llo on Friday and Saturday, April 15 and 16.
To our mind this picture is absolutely thc most absorbing drama
ever presented In a theatre.
We realize how futile it is to pick
amusements that will satisfy everybody. But "Over the Hill" is a picture for everybody.
Its appeal is so universal, so powerful, so human, and its characters so
lifelike, that we feel certain il will
grip you aa it has thousands ol* other
every-day humans from all walks of
life In New York Cily.
For one solid year, twice daily, ii
has competed with the most successful theatrical attractions in the very
heart of the world's greal est amuse
ment mart, and to-day its bold upon
the public is stronger than when the
picture was first displayed.
This is our chief reason for giving
"Over the Hill" an unqualified endorsement without any reservations
whatsoever.
Yours very truly,
E. W. BICKLE, Manager.

COURTENAY,    April    5.—Amongst
the correspondence at Monday night's
meeting of the City Council was a
communication from the local post of
the Canadian Legion, requesting cooperation for the celebration of the

was decided that the whole council

connected with the diamond jubilee
celebration when the occasion arises.
After the other correspondence, including an offer of a boat for thc
Powell Hiver run, had been dealt witb
the Council went into committee of
the whole to bear a proposal from
Messrs. Hill and Pord for the operating of a dally boat service on schedule
between this point and Powell River.
On coming out of committee, a report
was made to the effect tbat the council could not entertain the proposals
made. A scheme was suggested to
Messrs. Hill and Ford, however, and
may prove practical. These men are
now working on the suggestion.
Alderman Douglas made his usual
reports for the Fire and Works departments. There bad been a fire at
eleven-thirty at the mill house, now
occupied by Mr. and Mrs. C. Bridges.
The cause, he said, was defective flue,
resulting In damage to the extent of
$280.00. Great credit was due to the
Fire Department for their prompt
action and successful handling of a
difficult situation. The city had now

COURTENAY, April 5.—The Courtenay volunteer fire department made
a Quick response to the Are alarm at
11:30 on Monday morning, when a
fire in the attic of the mill house
occupied by Mr. and Mrs. C. Bridges
did damage to the extent of about a
thousand dollars. The outbreak was
probably caused by a defective chimney, giving the firemen considerable
trouble fn getting at the blaze, which
appeared to be distributed all over
the under-side of tho roof and necessitated cutting holes in various parts
of the shingles, through which the
fire hoses were Inserted. The efforts
of the Are fighters were successful ln
confining the blaze to tbe top of the
bouse, while tho furniture was taken
out on to tho lawn. Mr. and Mrs.
Ilrldges are now occupying a house on

night In their evening clothes were
picked up on the opposite side by
another P. & O. boat and taken to
England. Fifteen years afterwards
he was ordered to proceed to Bombay
and on enquiring at the steamship
office what boat he would have to
travel on to reach Bombay by a certain time, was informed that the
"China" was the only boat, the vei ,*
boat he was wrecked ln fifteen years
previously. However, said His Excellency, there was nothing else for
it. He had to go. The boat left
England on Friday, March 13th, 1913,
and he was very happy to say he had
a most pleasant voyage and a most
successful mission, whilst in Bombay.
The fact that he was Canada's thirteenth Governor-General was, to him,
a good omen; he could not believe it
otherwise. Speaking as one who had
lived for twenty years in many parts
of the empire, he believed that tbe
best way of securing tbe peace of the
world was In building up every part
of the British empire as free communities with one common purpose,
that of promoting peace and goodwill throughout the civilized world.
He believed that Canada, when il
obtained Its full share of population,
would inevitably become one of the
most Influential nations within the
British Empire and he was going to
work for that Ideal as far as he could.
The Rev. J. R. Hewitt, In proposing
a vote of thanks said the British Empire in choosing their ambassadors
gave them no detailed Instructions
but bade them be worthy of the great
traditions of their race. He knew
that the speaker of the evening was
well versed In these traditions and
would live up to them.     Mr. E. T.

crimes as black as the bird's feathers
themselves. Killing game birds, ruining crops, murdering young sheep—
these are a few of the crimes laid
to tlic door of the bird criminals. On
the other hand, the crow does not
lack champions. Last year, when a
bounty was declared large numbers
of bird-lovers denounced thc Game
Board's plan to kill crows on the
ground that the charges against them
wcre not substantiated, and that a
crow was innoncent until be had been
proved guilty.

by   Jlr.   George   Housser-,   president,

great Importance to be administered
by the rule of political expediency."
.Mr. Housser declared. "What British
Columbia needs most js a highway
policy," said Jlr. Housser. "Most o(
our roads have been built under tlie
pressure of necessity and the result
has been thot we are far behind in
our road programme. This condition
gives every constituency desiring
highway   work   an   unfair  advantage
