Easterners Have
High Praise For
Collieries Team
The Canadian Collieries Soccer
team arrived home on Sunday
looking none the worse after
their strenuous fight for Dominion Football Championship honors. All the Winnipeg papers
gave the Collieries team unstinted praise for their sportsmanship and the excellence of their
football. The following account
ot the final game will be read
with interest by soccer fans all
over the district:
"Responding to the enthusiastic
urging of thousands of their followers and showing that spirit of aggressiveness and vitality that has made
them such a formidable contender in
the Connaught cup series for several
years, the United Weston team last
night on Carruthers park staged a
splendid rally In the last half of their
game with the Cumberland team and
won out in the last few minutes with
the only tally of the match. The
crowd went wild when the goal was
recorded by Johnny Lang, the diminutive forward, but even the scenes that
were then enacted faded In comparison with what occurred when Referee
Bill Hetherington, of Regina, blew the
final whistle In the 1926 competition
that gave the handsome cup, presented by the English Football association, to the locals. Hats flew in the
air, friends embraced each other, and
stands and playing field were soon
masses of excited but decidedly happy
people, lt waB the fourth meeting of
'ino teams in less than a week and
one goal alone separated them at the
"It was the most exciting series
and probably the best that has ever
been played for the title of amateur
champions of football ln Canada. It
was undoubtedly the most drawn out
one, six and a half hours of actual
play being required to reach a decision. The crowd was also one of the
largest that has ever attended a cup
game In Canada, the big enclosure
being packed to capacity. There was
not a vacant Beat on the grand stand.
Fitting f Umax
"Wednesday night's game was a
fitting climax to a notable series, although the play was not up to the
standard ot that displayed in Monday
-night's contest. But the spectators
bad nothing to kick about. The match
abounded In exciting moments, the
brilliant saves of the rival goalies,
witb equally brilliant play at times
by forwards and defence, keeping the
onlookers keyed up to the highest
"It may be said without disparagement of the victory of the Weston
team, that the British Columbia men
dominated the flrBt half with the exception of a few minutes toward the
close. The same may be said of the
second half until well on to the
middle of tho period when the Manl-
tobans came to the fore with unexpected reserve strength and a brilliant
display of skill that carried them on
to victory. Weston could not be denied. Any team that can hit the uprights' twice ln the first minutes and
the cross-bar once after being outplayed, ls deserving of all the honors
of glorious victory.
Johnny I,ang Scores
"It is notable In a contest of this
kind that the winning goal was scored
by Johnny Lang, who had spent Monday night and part of Tuosday ln a
hospital suffering from an Injury received In the third contest and who
at one time was not expected tn be In
the line-up. He showed little effects
on the field and besides his victory
recording goal, turned In a most useful game. When praise is being handed out, Captain Monaghan, of the
losers, must not be overlooked. He
was easily the best as well as tlic
coolest player on the field, seeming
to have the useful faculty of being
on the spot wherever needed. Tait
again turned in a brilliant performance, while Fowler and Tubby Davies
were dangerous at all times. The
team as a whole played scientific
football, placing kicks and passes
with precision, while in heading the
ball their greater height gave them
all the advantage. As In previous
games, what weakness they showed
■was near and around their opponents'
goal. At that, Derby, cUBtodlnn for
the Weston team, had lo turn In one
of his most brilliant games of nis
career to stave off defeat.
"Weston did not look very good at
the outset, but as the game progres-

Sparring Partners
Lacking So Cliffe
Goes To Seattle
Failing to unearth suitable opponents to give him the hard preliminary
work-outs necessary to put him at
the peak of his form, Roy Cliffe, Vancouver Island's premier contender for
the Canadian light-heavyweight title,
will do all his training in Seattle for
his championship bout, scheduled
against Charlie Belanger, Winnipeg,
for settlement at Courtenay, Saturday, September 4th.
This, while a big disappointment to
local fans, is the right step fn the
right direction, as Manager Lonnie
Austin promises to leave nothing undone to have his charge In his best
form for what gives promise of being a bitterly contested battle.
Belanger ' has already opened his
camp at Capllano Canyon at the headquarters formerly used by Vic Foley
and with Jack Reddick, former champ

the boxing game are assured that
both principals will be "in the pink"

commission was remitted to Courtenay Wednesday to say that the Win-

the early contestants.

This wager was not permitted to wait
any length of time for acceptors, being snapped up In jig-time by the
admirers of Cliffe who ure willing lo
give a shade of odds that the Islander
will be on top, If not through the kayo
route, then at least by the referee's
decision. All this makes for one of
the greatest battles ever staged on

Birthdays are not overlooked at
radio broadcasting stations, and CN
RV will observe the anniversary of
Its first year as a Pacific Coast station with a special programme and
all the features necessary for a real
birthday celebration. CNRV is the
western end of the chain operated by
the Canadian National Railways
across Canada. Ten in number, these
stations reach from the AtlanUc to
the Pacific and ln tbelr activities
spread news and information regarding the Dominion throughout every
section of the North American continent.
CNRV is of the latest design and
operates by remote control, the studio
being situated in the city proper,
while the transmission apparatus and
the twin steel towers bearing the
aerial system are at Lulu Island, ten
miles outside Vancouver. During the
year CNRV has been on the air the
station has established a solid reputation for fine programmes and excellence of transmission. The station Is
noted for strict adherence to Its allotted wave length, proper modulation
and thc absence of harmonics.

The death occurred Wednesday
morning at the Royal Jubilee Hospital, Victoria, of Mr. George Wilkin-
Bon, chief Inspector of mines. The
end came suddenly, ln his fifty-first
year, It being recognized that when
he was removed to the hospital there
was little chance of recovery.
He was a native of Greys, Southend,
Essex, England, being born May 27,
1876. He came to Vancouver Island
at the age of twenty, and worked in
the mines at Nanaimo, being ad
vanced in position until he became
mines manager for the Western Fuel
Company. He was very popular In
Nanaimo, and was active tn athletic
circles In that city in his younger
Become Manager in 1920
When Mr. Thomas Graham left the
chief inspectorship to become general
superintendent of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., Mr. Wilkinson succeeded him on April 5, 1917.
That post he held for three years,
resigning In May, 1920, to become
manager of the Pacilic Coast Coal
Mines. Three years later he returned
to the post when Mr, James McGregor
His long experience in connection
with the operation of mines particularly well fitted him for his work,
and he won the support of the Hon.
William Sloan, who has been head
of the department during both his
terms as chief Inspector and of all
the colliery operators.
Valuable Judgment Shown
Mr. Wilkinson was a pioneer in
the application of rock dusting to
avoid colliery explosions, and his
judgment in taking steps to introduce
new methods of preventive and rescue
work wlll long survive his prominent
association with the department.
The surviving members of the
family are his widow, two daughters,
Misses Ruby and Evelyn; three sons,
Messrs. George, John and Edward.
The Rev. Robert Wilkinson, of North
Vancouver United Church; Mr.
Thomas Wilkinson, of Chase River;
Miss Elizabeth Ann Wilkinson, and
Mrs. George Stephens, of Chase River,

New Trophy Was
Given To Weston
After Final Game
Immediately after the conclusion of
the game at Winnipeg on Wednesday,
the handsome trophy donated by the
Football Association of England was
presented to Captain Dan King by H.
W. Scrymgeour, who in his address
stated that the cup series was the
best and the cleanest that had ever
been staged In Canada. He added
that in his opinion Cumberland and
Weston were the best teams that ever
competed In the final and that the
better team had won. He complimented the winners on their splendid
showing and both teams on the sportsmanship displayed.

Mr. Pattullo came back with this announcement after his trip with other

They went In on horseback to Buttles
Lake and explored it In a canoe.
Among other matters which will be
studied is the possibility of increasing
tlle size of Strathcona Park by Including within It some particularly
fine areas near the present reserve.
"There Is good commercial timber
bordering the lake in places," Mr.
Pattullo said, "but one would not
choose It as 'show timber.' For many
miles on either side of the lake there
are stretches of non-commerclal timber which, from a bird's eye view, are

"Strathcona Park will be a resort

line of Buttles Lake is too sheer for
enjoyment of swimming and bathing
by small children, and in this sense
the lake will not become a popular
resort. Strathcona Park is essentially alpine in character.

A REGULAR A fine, strapping fellow w'd count
FELLOW among  our   friends,   had   been
planning for months on his vacation. He was going fishing with a group of his
cronies, Thoy knew a camp on a lake where the
trout rise to the lure. They had been going to
this particular spot for a number of years. The
guides wore known to them and this summer camp
was like a little bit of Heaven after eleven months
of warfare in the marts of trade. The annual
pilgrimage lo the fishing grounds had come to be
a sort of rite and the time was drawing near for
the holiday.
This time, my friend's mother, aged and worn
in the struggle of life, was taken ill on the eve of
the date set i'or the fishing trip. Her doctor
said she must go away to a quiet place for a
change oi' air and scene. The son was the only
one who could take mother to the place designated by lhe doctor. For a day the young man
felt that this cross was too heavy to bear. To
give up the campfire, the shore dinners, the comradeship of his pals, and go and sit on a dinky
hotel porch beside his old mother was asking too
But deep in the heart of every red-blooded
man the old-fashioned mother love is very strong
and as my friend tossed on his bed that night,
there came a vision. He saw that tired and
worn-out mother as she was when he was a baby
asleep in his crib. He saw her rocking him in
the still watches of the night when indigestion
tormented his little body. He heard the snatches of childhood songs that she crooned to soothe
his pain. Back came the recollections of his
early struggles and mother's tender, watchful
care. The tears that had been in his heart for
years—cave-locked, childhood tears—blurred his
eyes, and the struggle was over.
The next morning he tucked the sick little
mother in his automobile and drove away to the
quiet place that meant rest and new health for
her. As he passed the railroad station he saw
his pals waiting for the train to take them on
their way to the fishing camp. With a smile he
waved good-bye to them and took the dusty road
over the hill.
"Mother's sorry, Jim," said  the  tired  little

thought as to how it was produced, or the money
that is spent to print it and deliver it to your
The newspaper of today, no matter what it
cost, would be the cheapest thing you bought, because it stands for the best in your community.
But let us consider for a moment just what it
does cost.
In the first place, it represents an investment
in plant, machinery and equipment of many
thousands of dollars. The weekly pay roll is no
small responsibility and the editor and staif work
diligently day in and day out, in all kinds of
weather, to gather the news and present it to you
in readable form. It aims to keep you informed
on all the news that's "tit for ink."
With the average paper, the price you pay
for subscription does not cover the actual cost of
the white paper and the postage.
And one of the hardest problems for the editor is the eternal battle against the persistent
effort to make the newspaper grind some fellow's
axe or give its space for nothing. Did you ever
stop to think that space in the newspaper is the
only thing the publisher has to sell and when you
ask him to give it away you are asking some,-
thing that is unfair. You don't go into a sto*re
and carry away merchandise, not even a paper- of
pins, without paying for it, and yet many people
do not hesitate to ask the editor to boost some
personal enterprise without pay.

Think it over. Look it over-. Then support
your home paper. It is the best investment you
can make, for it brings the largest returns.

I for numberless ailments is—work.
We have sympathy with the ill and the afflicted. God knows there is enough pain in the
world. But to brood over one's illness, to dope
oneself with nostrums, to nurse an ache or pain,
is absolute folly. Get interested in your work
and you will forget much that seems wrong with
you. Go to bed honestly tired and you will not
lie awake dreading that operation that may never
be necessary.

"The Radio Detective"
Slowly the wind cleared the smoke
away, the water quieted down and the
echo of the explosion ceased to re-
vorberate through the hills of Rockledge.
"That other thing, back of them, is
gone altogether!" I exclaimed.
"And the motor boat's sinking!"
added Easton.
Kennedy was peering out anxiously
over the waters of the harbor for the
hoys. Not a sign of them could be
seen. Had both perished? We stood
frozen with [ear, wondering.
Suddenly Kennedy started. "There
they are—watch that sinking motor-
Sure enough, both Ken and Hank
had been blown to the far side of the
motorboat. They had come up and
had struck out i'or the nearest floating thing. We dashed down the hill
after Craig. There we jumped into a
rowboat and lustily started to pull
out to the boys who were too weakened to attempt the long swim to shore.
'.'Thank heaven, you're alive!" said
Easton as he reached over and dragged Ken into the boat.
It was none too gently that I helped
Hank over the side. Both boys were
considerably shaken up and we started back to the shore with them.
"How did it happen, Ken?" asked
Kennedy at length when we had them
sprawled  on  the  float  drying out.
I was keeping a sharp eye on Hank,
careful to see that he did not pull any
new atunts lo get away. The boy was

he exclaimed. "Yes. tell us what
happened  while  we  were away."
Quickly Ken ran. over the events
that had eliminated Ruth as well as
Vira and Glenn Buckley as suspects,
in his mind.
"And then." concluded Ken, "the
rest of it you saw. I guess you know
as much about that part of it as I do
—perhaps more. Perhaps you know
how it was done."
"I could make a shrewd guess," cut
In Easton. "But why destroy tills
place? We were not in It. Nobody
wus in it. They could not get us by
blowing it up—not at that time."
Kennedy smiled. "No. But they
must know of and fear your radio-
plane, Easton. It happens to bc the
only thing that will catch  them!"
"Yes." Easton was thoughtful. "!
was thinking of that. Really until
these crooks came along I had no idea
how important some of these Inventions might be!"
Our conversation was interrupted
by the appearance of the very polite
find obliging clerk from the club.
This time he had another large
sheaf of messages. "There's one, sir,"
he said, "that just came in and the
operator told me the man who sent
It insisted it was very urgent and
that it had beeu telephoned first to
.Mrs. Gerard who wanted you to have
it right away."
"I should say lt was important,"
Craig exclaimed as he read the message'. "It conies from a little cruiser
on the Sound, named the Sea Vamp.
Listen to this. It's supposed to be
from Dick, broadcasting. 'Will be
back the llrsl chance 1 call get io
swim ashore.'"
Ken was quite excited. "I believe
lie sent it! I've been expecting Dick
to do it. That's what fooled me before. But this sounds right. Dick's
a good swimmer."
Kennedy was re-reading the message. " 'No harbors here—only low
cliffs along Hie Sound.' He must he
pretty tar east of us then, where the
sand cliffs become lower—almost. I'd
say, lo the end of the Island.
"Yes; getting farther und farther
away." commcinted Enston. "We
ought to be doing something, or they
will slip out Into Ihe ocean. Now,
what to do?"
"Why." Crnig smiled, to catch Dick?
Your  radloplnne—of course!"
"Why—yes—of course I"
As if moved by the same thought
we all rose. I took Hank's arm. i
was not going to let him get away.
Laddie was overjoyed at seeing us.
He had no idea what a valuable service he had rendered. Ken patted his
head.   "Good dog. Laddie!"
As others were making ready, I
stepped to the telephone and called
our friend, the constable. "I have a
bit of business  for you. constable."
By this time Easton had opened a
trap door in the floor and started
down a ladder.   Craig followed.
It as down there in the former boat-
house that Easton had housed his
hydroaeroplane. lie always referred
to It now as his radioplane, aud had
named it the "Sea Scout."
Ken und I remained upstairs to
guard Hank while Craig and Easton
tuned up tlie "Sea Scout" on which
Easton hud been installing all sorts
of radio devices.
Aloft, this hydroaeroplane, like a
mother ship, carried a little radio-
plane of Easton's design, a radio-air
torpedo, so to speak.
Ken could scarcely restrain him-'
self. He took a step over to Hank, ;
who cringed.
"Why did you He about my sister .
and the racing debts, Hank? She [
might have been at Belmore Park. I
But nobbody saw Ruth bet. She has
no gambling debts. The others have. |
But not Ruth. Now why did you say
"I lied." snivelled Hank. "1 wanted
to throw you. off, Ruths all right."
"Yes, and Easton thinks so; too.
on will give you another licking."
Hank as a miserable, dejected oli-
You'd better look out, Hank, or East-
Ject. Yet I could not feel sorry for
the mucker. I thought it was a good
time to extract some more information. "Where are they taking Dick?
You know!"
Hank sniveled again. "Oh. Mr.
Jameson! I s'pose up north somewhere—in Nova Scotia, where they
take their stuff!"
I nodded. Craig and Evans could
not get that radioplane ready too fast.
Just then there was a noise al the
door and  the constable entered.
;    "There,   sir,"   I   said   sternly.    "I
! want you Io take charge of tills boy
for safe keeping.     it will  give him
a chance to think things over.   We'll
need him.'
Hank begged, but I was inexorable.
His future, could be taken care of
later. Now, the question was for us
to join in helping Easton and Craig
below. There wasn't much to do.
Easton always kept the radioplane fit.
"There's oue thing you can do, Walter," calliirt Kennedy from the cockpit. I
"What's that'."'
"You   can   examine   that   skidway!

we lind that the chickens first cost
$8 per dozen, which would be nine for
$6. Then they went up one-eighth, or
12.5 per cent, to $9 per doz., which is
8 for $6.B0; 12.5 per cent on $6—75
cents; so "those chickens would be
worth $6.75 to-morrow." MoBt solvers fall Into the error of thinking that
there should be a raise of $1 per doz.

eight chickens worth $6.66 and 1-3

p.m. at the school where the children
were given flags and parasols, the
parade took place to the Agricultural
Grounds, led by the Courtenay Boys
Band, which made a very creditable
showing. Arriving at the Agricultural GroundB, each child was given
five tickets, which entitled them to
various forms of refreshments. From
the bandstand In the grounds, exalted
ruler William Douglas ot B. P. 0. E.
Lodge 60, gave the children a brief
and concise address on the flag, explaining the composition of the Union
Jack and making some appropriate
remarks on citizenship. He was assisted in the flag demonstration by
Messrs F. W. Tull, W. J. Andrews,
and Len Roberts. Following the address on the flag the band rendered
"0 Canada" and the children immediately, afterwards proceeded to the
refreshment counter of ample proportions, where they exchanged their
tickets for ice cream, pop, candy and
buns, being served by a v*We efficient
staff of Elks and Mrs. Elks.
A sports programme consisting of
races, tugs-of-war, pie-eating contests
etc., was carried out during the afternoon to the strains of the band. There
waB a big crowd of children present
from all parts of the district and a
number of parents too. Transportation waB provided from various quarters, both for bringing In tlie kiddles
and taking them home.
The Elks' 1926 Kiddies Day was undoubtedly a success for it accomplished Its purpose in giving the children
a good time.

A new all-steel body of radically
Improved design ls the feature of the
Essex coach, announced and placed
on display today by Pidcock and McKenzie. Hudson-Essex dealers for the
district. The real story of this new
car is said to be the story of a $10,
000,600 plant which the Hudson Motor
Car Co. erected especially for the
building of these bodies.
"The Hudson organization, a year
ago, completed the design of this new
body and laid out a program for a
building to construct lt," said Mr.
Geo. Pidcock. "In this general expansion program, 110,000.000 has been
Invested in the body plant, and $.**>,

the body has beon found to be absolutely free from squeaks and rattles.
The car was repeatedly run up on
curbs ot various heights, the doors
tried and found to open and close
freely. A 200-pound man was placed
on each door as a final test of the stability of the body, and the car was
driven over several hundred yards of
rough road. The doors did not sag In
the least, fitting just as perfectly after
this rigid test as before. This remarkable rigidity in the body is gained by the scientific sectioning of the
pressed Bteel from which the body is
made. All ot the pressed steel parts
are formed with not only ease of
essembly In view, but also from the
standpoint qf rigidity.
"The door is an interesting and
typical example of the construction
ot this body. Its rigidity is gained
by box sections formed by presses.
After the assembly of tlie door parts
is complete, the entire door is placed
In a 130-ton hydraulic press for a final
operation that leaves no doubt about
the correctness of the door shape. A
piano type of hinge, an entirely new
idea In automobile practice, supports
the door. Besides tlie remarkable
gain in strength and accuracy, this
type hinge brings about a marked
Improvement ln appearance.
"The whole interior of the car Is
exceptionally neat and trim, the dash
well arranged and pleasing. The door
handle nnd lock are combined in one
unit. The steering wheel Ls solid
walnut mounted on a east aluminum
spider. The windshield wiper switch
Is on the dash and forms part of an
attractive instrument board arrangement.
"These bodies are mounted on tiie
standard Essex chassis, with no
mechanical changes whatever. Standard equipment Includes shutters and
motometer, stop-light, electric windshield wiper, rear vision mirror and
tire carrier. The price announced Is
1900 f.o.b. Windsor, duty only paid."

sed. the men took more chances and
Dusty Miller, young Hutchison and
Jock McNeil were the shining lights.
Scotty Lang appeared on the field
with his knees encased in bandages
and it was not until he had removed
these that he began to show to advantage and at the end was playing
like a whirlwind.
"Art King was at his best when
Cumberland wcre having the better
of the play and at one stage he blocked, in successoln. four or five well
directed efforts that might have
occasioned worry to Derby had they
got past. Capt. Dan King played his
usual steady game that saved his
team on many occasions. The half
line, Mcintosh, Slidders and McNeil,
proved a sturdy line, while Watson
was too well watched to show his
real play around the goal.

a busy time. For more than ten minutes they had all the better of the
play but missed several good chances
when well placed. Hitchens and
Fowler won led the Weston defence
and later Fowler drove a bullet-like
ball that went over the bar. With
fifteen minutes to go, Cumberland had
the Manltobans blocked around their,
goal and kept pumping shot after
shot on their opponents' fortress and
it was here that Dan King rose to the
occasion. Hitchens headed one that
Derby was fortunate iu tipping over
thc bar. At this time Weston was
playing loosely, the men getting out
of position and the passing was ragged in the extreme. An exciting moment occurred when Dan King blocked
and ihe ball got away, Mcintosh relieving. Immediately after Derby had
to save again. Weston, with three
minutes to go, bucked up wonderfully
l and Scotty Lang missed. Johnny
: Lalng headed one that tried Tait.
Second Period
:    "The   second   period   had   scarcely
got under way before Hutchison hit
j the upright and Weston were master
i for a short time.   Derby was hit on
j the chest with a hot one from Hltch-
! ens that had all the power of a pile
driver behind it.   Davles made a very
1 skilful rush and Derby saved.   Frank
j Strang shot without the goal and a
short time later Derby again had to
! show  his wares.   The  visitors  were
again in the ascendancy. F. Strang
collided with Art King and retired
for five minutes, but ln his absence
his team-mates held their own. A.
Strang was hurt when he collided
with Watson but continued to play.
Miller. F. Strang and Scotty Lang all
missed. The latter gave a nice pass
to Watson and the latter headed, the
ball just going outside the upright.
The crowd at this time was in a feverish state of excitement. Monaghan
put in a hard one that Derby tipped
over. Monaghan sent in a lob that
got away from Derby and there was
a wild scramble, but relief came to
Weston. Miller shot wide after a
nice play by Hutchison. S. Lang and
Watson. On a free kick Monaghan
sent over to Fowler who drove hard
it Derby, the latter making a wonderful save and clever relief. With only
seven minutes tn go Weston threw all
caution to lhe winds. Hutchison, S.
Lang aiid Watson combined and Watson headeil, hitting the post with Tait
hopelessly beaten. Miller crossed one
and In attempting to save Tait went
down, but Hutchison's effort was wide.
A little later Lang hit the upright.
Just afterwards Johnny Lang got into
postilon ln front ot the goal and when
the ball was sent ln from the side
Tait did not have a chance to save.
There was less than two minutes to
go and the Weston team took no
