rival at the Riverside Hotel just after
12 o'clock he was received by the executive of the Comox association. After greetings had been extended to
Mr. Bennett, Mr. C. H. Dickie, M.P.
for Nanaimo, and Mr. D. B. Plunkett,
M.P. for Victoria, a procession was
formed and headed by Piper Stewart
ln Highland costume, they marched
to the Native Sons of Canada Hall
where a sumptuous lunch was spread
in the dining room.
Following the meal. Mr. J. N. McLeod, president of thc Central Association, extended a welcome in a few
words to the leader of the party. In
a most happy speech Mr. Bennett expressed his thanks for the kind reception on the part of the local Conservatives. It was, he said, in keeping
with the kindness accorded him at every place visited. He referred to the
presence of a number of former residents from the Maritime Provinces ln
the valley, including Dr. G.' K. MacNaughton, M.L.A. for the district, and
Mr. Robert Grant, a former member.
He was glad to see them taking their
part with the native-born in this
western province and those from the
Old Land and elsewhere, in building
up this delightful country on Vancouver Island.
Those members of the executive
present, in aditlon'to the quests, were
Mr. J. N. McLeod, president; Mayor
Theed Pearse. of Courtenay; Mrs.
Derbyshire, of Cumberland; Captain
J, Carey, of Royston; Mr. Heber
Cooke, of Courtenay; Mr. W. E. Anderson, Quathiaskl Cove; Mr. H. Loggie, Courtenay; Mr. Tom Hudson, Little River; Mr. Len Piket. Courtenay;
Mr. D. R. MacDonald, Courlenay;
Mr. A. M. Hilton, Royston; Mr. Wm.
Stewart, Courtenay; Mr. Wm. Duncan, Sandwick; Mr. A. J. Taylor. Cumberland; Mr. A. F. Watson, Cumberland; Mr. Robert Grant, Royston and
Dr. G. K. MacNaughton, M.L.A.
After luncheon the party left the
Hall and repaired to Lewis Park were
a  crowded   grandstand  was  awaiting
tions.
Dealing with the record of the Liberals on the subject of allowing the
dumping of frui a in Canada to the
ruination of the Canadian fruit
growers, he recalled the resolution introduced by Premier Tolmie while in
lhe House of Commons, in favor of an
anti-dumping regulation. But the
King government voted it down. Then
with respect to the neglect shown by
the Liberal government when thc Australian treaty was drafted, in omitting to aid thc trade with the Antipodes in Canadian lumber, Mr. Ben>
nett said he saw the government was
proposing to subsidize the carrying of
lumber to Australia. Had the government, at the time of passing the
treaty subsidized their intelligence, it
might not need to subsidize the carrying of lumber now.
"I am not asking any privilege for
Canadians in the fight for trade," he
said. "Canadians only ask that there
be no loading of the dice. The Conservatives, when they come to power,
are going to put on the statutes the
chance of a fair competition for Canadians against the world. We are going to get the buyers to come here
and buy the goods manufactured here.
The people of the British Empire
should form an economic unit and
.stand four-square to all the world."
Mr. Bennett closed his four days'
tour of Vancouver Island with this
meeting. Before leaving he expressed
his delight with the tour hc had been
privileged to make of Vancouver Island, having never been further than
Victoria before. The charming scen-
.*ry along thc routes travelled had Impressed him very much. At all his
meetings the keenest interest had been
manifested by all and he was verv
much pleased with the results.
No Blame Attached
To Anyone Finding
the distinguished visitor and after „,

Union Bay Chinaman Interred
on Wednesday from Local
Funeral Parlors
took the stand which had been spe'
daily erected in a position in front of
the crowd where all could distinctly
hear and the speaking began.
After a few words of appreciation to
Mr. Bennet for his visit, Mr. J. N. McLeod who made a very efficient chairman, called upon Mayor Pearse who, in
extending a welcome to Mr. Bennett,
hoped to see him soon return as Prime
Minister. Dr. G. K. MacNaughton,
who had known Mr. Bennett as a
young law student in the Maritime
Provnnces, also welcomed him to the
district.
Mr. D. B. Plunkett and Mr. C. H.
Dickie spoke very briefly in order to
allow the fullest time to Mr. Bennett,
Mr. Plunkett stating that in view of
the situation that prevailed in Canada
at present, there was need of a return
to the old protection policy of the
Conservative party.
The chairman then called upon the
Hon. Mr. Bennett, who was received
with prolonged  applause.
That a million and a quarter dollars
worth of Iron and steel orders going
to foreign countries daily was the
chief cause why it was difficult to establish steel works on the Paciflc
coast, stated the speaker. He touched
upon the fact that there were within
a short distance of the Comox Valley
large deposits of iron, while coal was
In the valley in abundance. That with
these resources so close together there
was no development along the line of
Iron and steel was to be deplored.
The reason for this was to be found
ln the policy that Canada was following. He then launched upon the advocacy of his policy to make a self-
dependent Canada, fostering her own
Industries and keeping as fnr as possible Canadian money. Canadian goods
and Canadian residents in the country.
But instead of this Canada bought
from the United Stales about twice as
Cumberland, Aug. G.—A coroner's
jury met tn the Cumberland Courthouse on Monday to inquire into the
death of Mah Fee, who died on Monday morning in the Cumberland General Hospital.
The evidence produced by witnesses
indicated that the deceased man was
an employee of the Canadian Collieries
tD.) Litd., and worked in the washery
at Union Bay. While at his labors he
endeavored to put a belt on a pulley
which was revolving, and his arm was
dragged into the machinery causing
a severe compound fracture of that
member and causing considerable
bruising and damage to the soft tissues and muscles.
He was taken to the Cumberland
Hospital and treated, and subsequently died on Monday morning from complications which set in.
The jury returned a verdict of death
due to complications following the injury, with no blame attached to any
one.

After nearly five month:

Maynard, well known in Cumberland
and accompanied by his wife returned. They spent nearly two months
In London and the remainder of the
time in Devonshire, Mr. Maynard's
old homo. Mr. Maynard snid be bail
improved greatly in health through
bis  visit  to tlie old  laud  and  whilst
he had enjoyed himself Inuuen.soly,
much as the United states bought he was glad to be back on Vancouver
from Canada. Since January 1st. Cnn-j Island,
ada bought about $200,000,000 more
from the United States than she sold
to that country.
The genius of Sir Charles Tupper,
many years ago, had led to lhe displacing of foreign rails from the railway lines In Canada and the replacing
of them by Canadian-made ones, but
the present Go. crnment at Ottawa
wns of different type.
On the inadequacy of the tariff to
protect Canadian farmers against the
invasion from 'other countries, Mr.
Bennett advised his audience to ask
the Hon Mr. Motherwell, Minister of
Competition To
Be Staged At
Lake Shortly
A fair number of the members of
the Cumberland Rod and Gun club
were In attendance at the special
meeting held, at which Mayer Maxwell, president of the club was in
the chair. Tlie main business was the
considering of tbe trawling competition, for tbe trophy donated by the
Gibbs Stamping and Tool Works,
Vancouver. Thy competition will be
held on Lake Cumberland on Sunday
August 18th, In the vicinity of Quart/.
Creek, commencing at 10 a.m., finishing hour to be 3 p.m., when all fish
entered for the competition will be
weighed in at Quartz Creek, the starting point. The contest will be confined to members of the Rod and Gun
Club and only two men to a boat will
he allowed. It'was also the unanimous opinion of the meeting that row
boats only be used and that receiving
assistance from power or sail boats
will bar the contestant from tlie competition. The fish must be caught on
Glbb's tackle, and must be cleaned
before being weighed lu. Only one
line will be allowed to each boat.
Considerably discussion followed the
foregoing proposals but were finally
adopted liy the meeting. The rules
of the competition will be read to all
entering, before tbe start of the con-
test and all entries must find their
own transportation. A specU.l prize
to the value of $5.00 will be given tn
tlie puller in the winning boat and all
competitors must declare their positions on entering.
Owing to the absence of Mr. Richard Coe, who is on an extended holiday in California, it was necessary to
appoint a new treasurer, Mr. S. Gougli
being the choice of the meeting lo
act iu Mr. Coe's place.
A committee composed of Messrs.
L. Frelone, J. H. Cameron, J. Bono,
Joe Gordon, Pete Francioli and W.
McLellan, Jr. was appointed to make
tbe necessary arrangements for a
trap shooting competition to be held
in the near future.
Owing to the trail Into the little
lakes being in bad shape, the president and secretary were Instructed
to interview the 1°C&1 member ,Dr.
G. K. MacNaughton and enlist his
services in an endeavor to have the
trail put into    respectable condition.

Tyees Being Caught
At Campbell River
And Comox Harbor
The big llsh have started and many
noted anglers from different parts of
the continent are now either at Comox Harbor or Campbell River or on
their way there, The season promises to be a reul good one and has
started a little earlier than usual.
The Willows Hotel at Campbell
River is full of guests and many are
pitching tents close to the famous
fishing grounds. Elk Hotel at Comox is also the rendezvous for many
anglers this year. Mr. Eriekson ,a
well known resident of the district
lauded a fifteen pounder at the harbor this week and Is very confident
of a successful  season.
It appears thai Mrs. Parker and
her two daughters. Thelma. eight and
one-half years old and another younger child, only four, had come to
Forbes Landing Friday of last week
to spend a short holiday and visit
their father who is engaged as a
steam shovel operator wilii ttie Campbell River Timber Company. On
Thursday tlie three had packed .i
lunch and started down tlie river by
a narrow path and had reached a
spot about three-quarters of o. mile
below ttie Hotel where the path winds
around a deep tittle pool with rocky
edges, here it is presumed that the
eight and one-half-year-old child
Thelma must have slipped In and the
mother Immediately went in after her
and as neither of them could swim
they must have been carried out of
their depth by the curreni of the
river and drowned. The four-year-old
child stayed around for awhile and
then unable to make oul the non-appearance of tier mother and sister
wandered back to Ilie hotel and said
thai liar mother and sister had gone
in the water and not come come back.
Search was Immediately made bul the
bodies were not recovered until tlie
following morning when the two bodies were found close together noL far
from the pool where It is presumed
they met their death.
An inquiry was held at Campbell
River at which accidental drowning
was found to In- ihe c;nise. Tlie bodies
were shipped in Vancouver today
where the funeral will he conducted.

CREDO
FOLLOWING is lhe creed of Elbert Hubbard.
Mr, Hubbard was one of the most successful
of printers and publishers some fifteen or
twenty years ago, and this credo published in hi.s
magazine The Fra, of August 1912, is well worth
studying today:
"I believe in myself.
"I believe in Ihe goods 1 sell.
"1 believe in the linn for whom I work.
"1 believe in my colleagues and helpers.
"1 believe in American Business Methods.
"I believe in tlie efficacy of printers' ink.
"1 believe in producers, creators, manufacturers, distributors, and in all industrial workers of
the world who have a job and hold it down.
"1 believe that truth isan assett.
"1 believe in good cheer and in good health; and I
recognize the fact that the first requisite in suc
cess is not to achieve the dollar but to confer a
benefit, and that the reward will come automatically and usually asa matter of course.
"I believe in sunshine, fresh air, spinach, applesauce, laughterf, buttermilk, babies, bombazine
and chiffon, always remembering that the greatest word in the English language is 'Sufficiency'.
"I believe that when I make a sale 1 must make
a friend.
"And I believe that when I part with a man
I must do it in such a way that when he sees me
again he will be glad—and so will 1.
"I believe in the hands that work, in the brains
that think, and in the hearts that love,
"Amen, and Amen!"
DEER  AND THEIR  YOUNG
THE female deer never abandons her fawn. She
leaves it to feed, but always comes back to
it. The fragile little creatures that sympathetic nature lovers sometimes find in their rambles through the woods are neither lost, starved
nor neglected. There is a mother deer not far
away that knows exactly where she left her
young and it is only a question of time when she
will come back to it. The chances of the fawn's
living under the care of its mother are very much
better than if you took it home and attempted to
raise it on a bottle.
UNITED STATES COURT
(i.WiS NEWSPAPEK
The editor ami chief editorial wri'er
of the Cleveland IVeas are under
sentence to servo '•'■ days in jail and
pay lines »f $600 each for contempt
of court for having criticized a Cleveland Judge, The Judge hnd issued an
injunction restraining thc sheriff
from interfering with tlie operation of
tho "contribution" system of betting
"if the same be not violation of thc
law." The editorial which formed the
basis for the contempt charge described Hie injunction as cither monstrous or ridiculous and hinted that
the Judge waa being deceived or Influenced liy racetrack Interests.
The Judge defends his citation of
these newspaperen for contempt on
tlie ground thai tlie court has Inherent power to determine what aetions
are punishable as contempl of court.
Tlie case is in some respects parallel to tbe Shumaker case in Indiana,
where tlie state superintendent of the
Anti-saloon League was punished1 for
contempt for having expressed an unfavorable opinion of certain judges
and where it was held that the governor's pardoning power did not extend to sucha  ease.
The action for contempt of court
grew out of tin* necessity of giving
tiie courts a weapon with which to
protect the dignity of their own proceedings nnd a Banction by which to
iilly issued   writs.
a man rises in t no
its the judge a liar,

If, for example,

he is pretty llabh
contempt.
If the court orders n witness to
answer n question and the wltnesa
refuses, he is equally liable.
If a person to whom a judicial order, such as an Injunction or a mandamus, lg directed refuses to comply
with the order, he can properly be
hold to be in contempt of court.
Bul for judgeB to use this Instrument as a means of silencing criticism of their actions outside of tlie
courtroom liy the press or the public
is itself both monsOtrous and ridiculous, I
ought to see it now.
Uut that portion of the press, which
is deeply Implicated with the racing
interests will doubtless not care to
speak out very boldly on their own
behalf even now. But the thing is an
outrage, none the less.
11 is the assumption of a tyrannical
power wholly foreign to American
law and government. It is contempt
of tlie constiution and the bill of
rights, andthat is something a good
deal more serious than contempt of
court.

Installed In
New Building
Campbell River. Aug. 6.—Marking
another milestone in the extension of:
telephonic communication in Camp-
bell River district, the British Colum-
bla Telephone Company hist Wednes-,
day, July 31st. began doing business!
from their new exohange in a modern-
ly built and equipped building on the j
Campbellton Road, just west of the
residence ot Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Thulin. For four months the build
ing was under construction, and. com
pleted, it is a credit to those who plan
ned it and to the men who did the
labor on it, Ii was built, primarily to
house a new department, more or less
in an experimental stage, that it is
hoped will give points beyond the land
lines of the company direct communication with oilier places through the
means ot radiophones. Last year experiments in which the Forest Service
co-operated, wire carried out. It was
only after these tests had bcen proven
successful that the installation of a
plant was decided upon.
On Wednesday afternoon, In the
presence of Mr. Leo. Greig, district
manager, nnd Mr. N. McLean, of the
Engineering Depart ment. Vancouver,
the cut over was made in twenty minutes, the actual work being carried
out by Mr. J. W. Hough, local supervisor, assisted by Mr. J. Young and
Mr. Albert Bridges, all of whom have
given their employers that which thc
company desires to give their patrons.
faithful service.
Miss J. Boffey, of Cumberland, has
been transferred from the Cumberland
exchange and is now agent at Campbell River. Miss E. Adlent has also
joined the Campbell River exchange,
coming from tlie Victoria oflice. Mrs.
D. Robertson will be night operator
and there will be one relief operator
in training.
About live years ago the B. C. Telephone Company entered Campbell
River, installing a switchboard in the
offlce of the Willows Hotel, The new
plant is an evidence ol faith ln the
district and will no doubt be the means
of assisting greatly in the Industrial
development  of Campbell River.

Hot weather

During the week of July 28,
hot weather was responsible
for 19 cases of trouble on the

Just as cold weather causes
a contraction of copper toll

to expand, and, although telephone men keep a careful
lookout for trouble of this
kind, an unexpected sag hi a

HEALTH SERVICE
ofthe
Canadian Medical Association
Minto
Questions concerning Health, addressed to tbe Canadian Medical
Association, 184 College St., Toronto, will be answered personally
by correspondence.
What Happens?
The need and value of a properly
staffed health department with an ad-
equate budget have been referred to
on many occasions. It lias also been
pointed out that, through the organization of County or Rural Health
Units ,the whole Dominion could secure the same high type of health
service as now provided for tlie residents of the larger cities.
Jusi whal this means la clearly
shown by Uie experience of t:ie City
of Toronto lu Tuberculosis. In the
year 1018, out of every 1U0.UXI per-
Bona in that city, over 100 tiled of
Tuberculosis, whereas in 1028, tho
number was 64. Ill other words, the
actual number of deaths in 1628 waa
Inn half of what, it would have been
if tlle same conditions as existed ten
years previously had persisted. Thitf
represents the avoiding of appt'oxlhf-
ntely 300 deaths In a single year from
one disease.
Results such as this can be secured all over Canada. They aro
not arrived at by chance, but are the
direct result o a tremendous effort,
carried ulong on proper lines and
consistently maintained year after
year, Such results represent the expenditure of considerable sums of
money. This actual expenditure, how-
would have been  necessary to spend
on (he care of cases in attempting to
cure them if their occurrence had not
been prevented. Add to the cost of
sickness, the value of human life, the
broken homes, ttie children left fatherless or motherless, and it is plain
to be seen that the investment in
health work pays a very real dividend
in money and human happiness.
Those communitiees which have
not as yet a proper health departmen*
those rural areas which are not as
yet being served by full-time health
units, should ask themselves it they
can afford to miss what others now
enjoy. Each individual should remember that personal and family
protection against disease rests
largely upon living under the supervision of an efficient health department.

Courtenay Ball Team
Has an Off Day
Suffering under a bad attack of
stage fright, the local baseball team
suffered an ignominious defeat at the
hands of the Schaefer team from
Montesano, Wash., on Saturday afternoon. A large crowd had stayed over
after hearing tiie Conservative speak-,
ers, which was added to materially I
by late comers. Of course, the visiting!
touring team pin..\ a snappy brand ot
ball and defeat at their hands would
have bcen no disgrace, but our boys
might have pulled themselves together
and provided a little more excitemnt.
For seven innings the Schaefers held
the locals scoreless, piling up. in the
meanwhile their total score of 22 runs.
In the eighth our boys got five and in
the last innings another tally made
their total for the game six.
