Secretary of Cumberland Board

Mr. J. C. Brown, secretary of the
Cumberland Board of Trade Is a very
disappointed man. Some time ago ho
wrote the Vancouver Island Transportation Company asking that conBlder-
atioa be given to an evening stago
from Cumberland, south. Up to the
time of writing, Mr. Brown has not
received a reply and as the stage com-'
pany are revising some of the sched-1
uie and putting on new busses at dlf- j
erent points of the Island, the sec-1
etary of the Cumberland Board of |
Trade is wondering if this end of the
Island has been overlooked.

The rugged scenery for which the
West Coast Is noted will probably hold
great appeal for Their Excellencies, I
aud it Is expected that this trip will j
be one of their most delightful cxper-1
lences in British Columbia. The West
Coast trip has become exceedingly!
popular with tourists from nil parts
of tbe world In the last two or three
years, and with the luxurious comfort
of the new Princess Norah Is bound to
prove enjoyable. When oa tho coast
two years ago, Their Excellencies
wore char uert with nn Indian reception given tiem at the Gorge, and
Lady Willingdon In particular will nn
doubt be captivate:! with tbe native
Indiana of West Coast points and their
unique customs.

In January from Scotland, where she
was built, has been 1.. ing nt the

Tournaments At
Athletic Club
Very Successful
Members of Club Demand One
More Tournament
The final of the checkers tournament at the Athletic Club was played
on Sunday last when J. Hannay triumphed, being credited with 124
points, with H. Waterlield and R.
Freeburn tleing for second place, with
llti points each. Mr. T. H. Williams,
however, came to the rescue and very
kindly donated a special prize, making
It possible for Freeburn and Water-
field to gain a prize each. This Is
stated to be the last checkers tournament this season, but It Is totally different story with the crib players. The
final of which was to have been the
last crib tournament this Beason will
be played on Sunday evening. J. Horbury and J. Wilkinson are in the final
but their opponents will not be kuowu
until the semi-final has been played
early onSunday evening. So insistent have the members of the cluo
been during the past ten da.s that the
executive of the club decided to stage
another crib tournament which will
be run in the form of a league, there
being no knockouts as In previous
tournaments. The pair of players
wining the best 2 out of 3 games
will be given ou.i point, and on completion of the league Lhe pair of players with most point.i will be declared
winners. All players aro requested
to be present at tho club at 7 p.m. on
Sunday,
This enterprising firm of young men
are now very optimistic regarding the
future of Cumberland and are sparing
no expense in making their garage a
most attractive one. Just what building Is going to be erected in addition
to the gasoline pumps could not be
ascertained.
Mr. Jack Ledingham, who was indisposed when tbe Islander reporter
called at the garage, could not be
reached, consequently nothing authentic could be learned as to the nature
of the building planned by the firm of
Harllng & Ledingham. Of course the
man on the street knows all about lt
and we are informed that it is intended to build a garage on one corner
and a show room on the other.
It is also rumoured that a Seattle
nn have been negotiating with Mr.
George Richardson for the purchase of
his property at the corner of Duns-
aiulr and Fourth street.

In his annual report, T. W. Wood-
head, president, said the passage o'
the Pensions' Dill was the chief accomplishment of the year. .He commented upon the looseness with which
several geographical divisions of the
Federation was held together. The
task ot bringing about a closer union
and raising the stalls of Isolated

,by the Incoming-executive, the president said.
Mr. James F. Hough, a former employee of tho Cumberland Islander

Victoria Colonist was a visitor to
.Cumberland for Easter.
Locals Win The
Gedunkers' Cup
Last Saturday evening the Cumberland High School Girls' basketball
leuni met the Nanaimo High School
team In play for the Upper Island
championship and the Oeilunlters' cup.
Nanaimo started with a fast game and
quarter time found the score 4-2 In
favor of Nanaimo. Tbe Cumberland
girls did some heavy checking, and
the Nanaimo team were able to score
only one penalty shot and Cumberland
two shots and a penalty, thus making
the score at half-tlmo 7-5 In favor of
the local team. Some excellent combination and quick passing took piano
during thc next quarter, the Cumberland girls cliulklug up two more baskets, making the score 11-6. During
the last quarter Nanaimo put up a
hard game but came oul on the short
end ol a 17-9 score. The win over Nanaimo gives Cumberland girls tho Upper Islnml championship and the Gedunkers cup which will be presented
at a luter date.
Nanaimo players were: Dagg. Bln-
dun, Iladow, Slillwell, Thompson, Te-
slal, Gibson.
Cumberland: Plcketti, Conrod, Partridge, C. Brown and Cavellero.
The same night the Cumberland
High Scjol boys played the Nanaimo
High boys for the championship. The
Nanaimo boys displayed some excellent combination, while the tendenov
of ihe home team was to do too much
individual playing. At half tlmo the
score was 15-13 in favor of the visiting team. During the last half Cumberland and Nanaimo both scored six
points, making the final total 21-19
for Nanaimo; the Nanaimo boys scoring the winning basket just before

Three Companies Will Present
Applications for Franchise
Before End of Month—Slight
Difference Develops in Character of Applicant's Desire.
Tho futuro ol Campbell River water
powers, one of the most discussed issues  liefore the last session of the
I-VKislature,    Involving    incidentally
the future uf Strathcona Park, will bo {
considered  by  the  provincial   water
board at the hearing this month, it'.
was   announced   at   the   Parliament \
Buildings.   The board has not fixed
the date nf this highly important hear-
ing definitely, but plans to bold lt be- j
fore the beginning of May.
Three Firms Id Field
The most strenuous battle waged
In recent years for a water power
ln Western Canada will be conducted
before tbe board when It takes up
the Campbell River question. Three
concerns, it was announced, will hav#
equal priority In applying for licenses
which would allow the harnessing of
the stream and the damning of Buttles
Lake in Strathcona Park. They are
the Vancouver Island Power Company, the Campbell River Power Company, and the Crown-Wllllamette
Company. The two latter concerns
are anxious to use the river to supply
power fnr a paper mill while the Vancouver Island Power Company, subsidiary of the B. C. Power Corporation
would use it to generate electricity
for general commercial use in tbe
avaiable areas.
Difference In Application
Each of these three applications will
be on the name basis of priority it
wns  explained,  but the proceedings
covering the Vancouver Island Power
Company   and   the   Campbell   River
Power Company applications are different   from   those  relating  to   the
claims  ot the Canadian Crown-Wil-
liamette Company.   The former are i
applying for a Class G license, which 1
would enable them to Bell power and,'
powers to the best advantage of tbe
public. Incidentally, tbe effect of
each scheme on Buttles Lake In
Strathcona Park will be given the
most searching scrutiny bj tbe Cabinet before any water license is granted,
according to the law. their plans will
bo considered by the water comptroller, Major J. C. Macdonald, a member
of the hoard, before a oertlfloate approving any of the undertakings Is
issued.
However, it must be approved by ,
the Minister of Lands. Thus the mutter becomes a case of Government
policy and it will be for the Government finally to decide which concern
can    develop    the    Campbell    River '
INSPECTS REPAIRS
AT THE SPIT
The recent repairs and alterations
at Comox Spit were Inspected last
week end by Mr. Finmore of the Naval
Yard, Esquimau, From recent press
despatches it is learned that H.M.S.
Colombo will <rul.se in British Columbia waters shortly and it Is presumed the buildings on the Spit have
heen put Into repair to accomodate
tho visiting tars. It lB also rumoured
that the spit will be used by some of
the military units this summer on the

Rat Pit Contest
For Nanaimo
Rat Catchers to Be Paid a Five-
Cent Bonus
One ot Nanaimo's most hectic Council meetings was held last evening and
many decisions were arrived at.
Amongst others was that Nanaimo Is
to be tbe legal recipient of a rat-pit
competition, Mr. Wm. Wlllgress, and
Mr. C. Harper addressed the Council
Mr. Harper said that, bh a member of
the Nanaimo Kennel Club, he wished
to inform the Council that the Club
was desirous of establishing a rat pit
here. He pointed out that it would
encourage the breeding of rat terriers,
that tbe club would pay five ceut« per
rat. He assured the Council that there
would be no cruelty attached. He
also said that after the battle the rats'
remains would be cremated, and tbe
best dog would be credited with tbe
victory.
Aid. Kenny moved that permission
be granted to establish the rat pit. It
was nothing but fair, tie said, that the
rats should he warred against. The
motion passed.
The rut question is also becoming
serious In Cumberland and some
moans will have to be taken very
shortly to put an end to the ever-Increasing numbers. The City or Courtenay is also faced with the same difficulty and the city fathers we are given to understand are investigating the
building of an incinerator for the
burning of all reruse. Thc City of
Cumberland would do well to build
an Incinerator without delay. Tho
present dumping grounds are nothing
but a feeding ground for rats and thc
sooner an incinerator Is built the better (or all concerned. Places of bust-1
ness and private homes are being I
bothered with rats nesting In and!
urouud their buildings and If the pre- ]
sent conditions aro allowed to continue, Cumberland will be over-run with
rats.
Nanaimo's idea of holding a rat-pit
competition is a good one. How about
following tbe Idea here?
Illustrated Lecture and Concert
Proved Entertaining and
Interesting
The illustrated lecture, concert and
the dance which followed the serv-
of refreshments at the Anglican Hall
on Wednesday evening, under auspices ]
of the Cumberland Cronies' Burns'
club proved to be both entertaining
und interesting and It is to be regretted (bat there was such sparse attendance. The lecture itself was
worth the price of admission asked.
Mr. Strachan took the audience over
many of tbe places made famous by
the poet, Robert Burns. The slides
Bhowed numerous phases of the poet's
life, from hia birth place In Alloway
to the Mausoleum In Dumfries, also
monuments to his memory at Alloway, Edinburgh and Kilmarnock. The
second portion of pictures shown included a number of old scottlah his-
trolcal places, making a very Interesting lecture for young and old. Mr.
Strachan as each picture wag flashed
on the screen delivered a short address applicable to the place shown.
Wonderful scenes of Edinburgh, Stirling, Inverness, West highlands, the
Forth Bridge, Cullodtn Field, and
Wallace and Bruce monuments were
depleted, the audience being taken
over a tour of a wonderful country.
Songs and instrumental selections
were rendered during the evening, the
following well known local artists
contributing to a well balanced programme: "Scottish Airs,'' by Byng
Bo..s' orchestra; song by Messrs Robert Goodall aud J. Stalker and Miss
E. Henderson and suxaphoue solos by
"Spud" Thomson.
A merry dance followed and whilst
not very largely attended was most
enjoyable. The executive of the Cronies' club are very grateful to thc artists for their generous help and ulso
deeply appreciate the assistance rendered by the Rev. E. O. Robathan who
operated the picture machine. On account of the first aid indoor meet
which will he held this Saturday the
Burns' club will not hold thenr usuul
whlst drive and  dance.
It was rather disappointing to tbe
executive of the Bums' club to see
a poor turn out at the lecture as it
*as felt that the subject would have
heen of great Interest to tho many
Scotch people living lu tho district.

Foresees Big
Developments
At Ladysmith
Total Coal Output to Be Maintained* Despite Extension
Closing. Says Haggen
Ladysmith may become tho "Metallurgical Mecca" of the Pacific Coast If
plans of the Lautysmtth .'Tidewater
Smelters Ltd., and the British Metals
Corporation for tlie re-opening of tho
Ladysmlth Smelter are carried out
according to E. A. Haggen, mining editor of the Vancouver Province. Reopening of the smelter, he declares In
a recent article, would more than
compensate the Ladysmlth district and
Vancouver Island for the recent closing of the Extension mines.
The plans of these two companies
Mr. Haggen writes, "include not only
smelting but the establishment ot
a custom concentrating mill where
ores can be treated without the necessity of constructing mills for smaller
mining operations tributary to the

The Cumberland Islander
PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY AT CUMBERLAND, B. C
EDWARD W. BICKLE
THE FORBIDDEN l'LATEAU
THE EDITOR of the Courtenay Free Pres3
takes us tu task for writing disparingly of
the Forbidden Plateau. It was not our intention to knock Courtenay's playground, but a
desire on our part to boost what we have got at
Comox Lake and the country adjacent to it, The
writer has never been to the Forbidden Plateau
but based his remarks last week on the word of
some who have travelled over both and our friend
on the Free Press can rest assured that the climb
would have no terrors for anyone who' has travelled the country around Comox Lake. For Comox
Lake country is strenuous country. That fact
cannot be denied, and, moreover, for the less
strenuous and those who enjoy the placid, the
beautiful shores of Comox Lake cannot be surpassed.
And that is why we say, Comox Lake, Cumberland has more to oiler than the Forbidden Plateau.
What we really want to bring to the attention
of our public bodies is the fact that Courtenay is
boosting their playground far and wide which is
bound to have results in the not too far distant
future, ln the meantime, we, here in Cumberland
are idle, doing absolutely nothing to build up a
clientage for Comox Lake. Let us all get busy
and follow the lead of our neighbors at Courtenay.
Let us paint glowing, but true pictures in all the
papers of the province and let the outsider know
what we have got. The road to success is paved
with good advertisements and we certainly have
some thing good to advertise.
CLEAN UP!
THERE is no "sure sign" of spring, but spring
should be a "sure sign" of the arrival ot that
time for the community to clean up. There
is no superstition or prophesying about this cleanup sign.
When warm weather has come to stay (until
cold weather returns in the autumn) every owner
of property and tenant should instinctively feel
it his duty to remove the evidences of winter's
ravages and to aid and augment nature in her
work of re-beautification.
Every spring clean-up programme should include disposal of winter's accumulation of litter
and decayed vegetation, repairing and repainting
of buildings, and landscape gardening. Landscape
gardening is no longer associated with large
estates alone.
Cleanliness about the person or the home costs
nothing. A community clean-up need involve no
expense, except of a moderate amount of labor
on the part of the householders. If there ever
were excuses for the uncleanliness they were removed long ago.
What is the compensation of a community-wide
clean-up campaign? It improves the general
health of the community by removing deposits
that are breeding places of disease germs and
disease carrying insects. A clean town is a better
place in which to live than one that is unsanitary
and unsightly. And the best community advertising is the appearance of being "cleaned-up, paint-
ed-up and planted-up."

WHAT NEWSPAPER ADS. DID
T WAS only a few years ago that the retail
j stores in towns and the smaller cities did the
bulk of their week's business on Saturday.
While theother live business days might have paid
expenses the merchant depended upon the Saturday sales for the major portion of his week's
profit. Needless to say the average merchant
would have been exempt from excess profits taxes
in those days.
The newspaper is given credit for discovering
the posibility of scatterng the Saturday peak load
over the six business days of the week and it was
newspaper advertising which has achieved the
present more equitable distribution of the week's
uusiness. Saturday is still the merchant's busy
day, but now he is only a little less busy on the
preceding five days.
This is only one of the many services performed
for business by newspaper advertising. It is irrefutable that a great part of the increase in
business experienced by the retail stores generally in recent years has been created by newspaper
advertising. Newspaper advertising has been
the "Alladin's Lamp" of the retail merchant.
There are still isolated towns where one may see
for himself what "might have been" the nation
over if newspaper advertising had never been.
If women had any sense there would be more
bachelors.

The Healthy Home
Very frequently we have mentioned
that the health of each of us depends,
in large measure, upon ourselves. We
must make use ol tlie information
given us concerning the prevention or
disease and maintenance of health If
it Is to be of any practical value. In
the same way, it is true that whether
or not the home is a healthy one depends upon the people who live fn it.
But that being true, it is also true
that some homes are so built that it
la very difficult, if not Impossible, to
make of any one of them a healthy
home.
When a house It to be built or rented, the question as to whether or not
It is so constructed and so situated
that can  be made a  healthy  home.
should   receive   attention.    Some   of all these.
the points which are of the greatest
Importance are brought to the attention of our readers.
Every room in the house should have
a good-sized window which opens and
and looks out upon a street, a yard
or a large court. This allows for the
free entrance of air into the room.
Air Is un absolute necessity and, there
fore, rooms without windows opening
Into the outer air are unlit to live lu
Alcove rooms without a window are
practically as bad as wlndowless
rooms, aa they are Impossible to ventilate.
Every home should have reasonable
facilities for cleanliness, There should
he ii kitchen sink, wash-basin, and
bath, witli hot-water connections.
Body cleanliness and particularly
clean bands are Important. If the
bands are to lie washed regularly before meals, if teeth are to be cleansed
twice a day, if a hot bath Is to be
taken at least once a week, It is ne-
ary that facilities be provided for
