DECISION OF RAILWAY COMMISSION
TheCumberland Board of Trade
some time ago made application
to the Railway Commission for
interchange of tracks at Roystoi*i
between the lines of the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir) Limited
and the E. and N. Railway. The
following is the text of the findings:—
The Canadian CollieriesLimited,
a company incorporated by the
Province of British Columbia, has
a railway running from Cumberland to Union Wharf. This railway crosses the line of the
Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway
near a flag station on the latter
railway called Royston. The
crossing is about four and a half
miles from Cumberland. There
are no facilities at the diamond
for the transhipment of passengers, express, or freight. At
present passengers get off at
Royston and walk about 2,500
feet along a highway until they
come to the Collieries railway
where they can get a train for
Cumberland. In October last one
of the Inspectors of the Board
reports that one day there were
as many as twenty three passengers transferred from one line to
the other; and, from the evidence
put in at Victoria it is apparent
there would be considerable passenger travel between points on
the E. and N. and Cumberland if
this connection were put in and
proper facilities for the transfer |
of passengers and their baggage
established.
The only way to get freight
into Cumberland at present,
either C. L. or L. C. L., is to
have it go over the Canadian
Collieries line from Union Wharf.
This makes it difficult for Cum-j
berland merchants to deal with
wholesale houses in Victoria.
Cumberland has a population of
three or four thousand inhabitants with some industries, and
the indications are that it will
grow.
I think it is in the public interest that there should be suitable j
facilities established near the
crossing of these railways for the
transfer of passengers, baggage,
express and freight, both E. L.!
and L.C.L. The Canadian Collieries Limited is not under the;
jurisdiction of this Board and we;
have no power to order it to pay
a portion of the cost of this
undertaking. Nevertheless, I
think it should contribute a portion of the cost of the work to be
done, and I believe that if the
connection were put in it would
prove to be beneficial to the
Collieries line. The connection
would, I believe, be more bene-
ficial to the E. and N. Railway
Company and I therefore think |
CANADIAN LINER TO BE HOSPITAL SHIP FOE INDIAN TROOPS
The Gaekwar of Baroda, said to be the wealthiest prince in the Indian Empire, has purchased the C.P.R. liner Empress ot India, which he will turn
over for use as a hospital ship for the Indian troops. The Empress of
India has plied between the Orient and ports on the Fncific coast for 23
years.   The vessel and her purchaser are shown in the picture.
that Company should contribute
the larger portion of the cost.
After consultation with the
Board's Chief Engineer and Operating Officer, I have come to the
conclusion that a fair division of
the cost would be: two-thirds to
be paid by the Esquimalt and
Nanaimo Railway and one-third
by the Canadian Collieries Limited. Both these officers agree
that this will be a fair distribution of the cost.
Plans should be prepared by
the E. and N. Railway Company
to be submitted for. the approval
of the Board, showing track connection and station facilities.
Royston station building is on the
wrong side of the track and
therefore should be moved. Probably expense could be saved if
when moving the station to the
other side of the track it were
also moved nearer to the diamond
so that the connecting line would
be as short as possible. We will
make an order requiring the
Esquimau and Nanaimo Railway
Company to do the work on condition that the Canadian Collieries Limited consent to assume
one-third of the cost; or, is
ordered to contribute that amount
by some forum having jurisdiction over it. Neither railway
company should receive anything
for any portion of its land which
it will be necessary for it to use
in constructing the interchange.
The plans of the proposed layout
to be submitted by the Esquimalt
and Nanaimo Railway Company
should be sent to the Board by
the first of March next and copies
of it supplied to the Canadian
Collieries Limited and the British
Columbia Government.

PUBLIC MEETING
There was a large attendance
at the public Liberal meeting
held in the Cumberland Hall on
Monday evening. Mr. P. Dunne,
merchant tailor of this city, was
voted to the chair and Mr. John
G. Biggs, recently appointed
secretary to the Board of Examiners, was asked to act as secretary of the meeting.
The Chairman in his opening
remarks stated that the meeting
had been called for the purpose
of organizing the Liberal association, as there had been considerable dissatisfaction at Courtenay
and other portions of the district.
He (theChairman) was requested
to call the public meeting to give
all good Liberals an opportunity
to voice their opinions. There
had been no meeting of Liberals
during the past eight years.
The Chairman then requested
all those present who were not
Liberals to be kind enough to
leave the hall. The Islander
man, of course, was at the meeting looking for news, and at such
a request picked up his hat and
left the building. So the Islander is unable to report any further
proceedings.
It has been reported that the
Liberal meeting was turned into
a Robbie Burns gathering before
the evening was far spent.
Passers by saw Pretty Poll, the
parrot, a rank red flag Socialist,
standing in the doorway of the
hall calling upon good Conservatives to step in and sign the roll
of membership, but there was
nothing doing.

BREACH OF PROMISE
CASE IN COURT
There was much interest and
excitement evinced on Monday at
a local court held in the basement
of the Presbyterian Church,when
the case of breach of promise waa
heard before His Honor Judge
Coates.
The plaintiff, Miss Macwhackle
had brought an action involving
a large sum for damages, against
I Mr. Edwin Stoppitofsky, for the
alleged breach of promise.
The defendant. Mr. Stoppit-
i ofsky, pleaded not guilty.
Both parties are well known in
the district, and the court was
crowded to the doors when the
case came up for hearing. Mr.
Tootight appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. H. A. Seed appeared
for the defendant.
Mr. Tootight opened the case
on behalf of the plaintiff in a very
impassioned speech, and then
proceeded to call his witnesses.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 30th, 1915.
j[,N VIEW OF THE attitude of the Liberal lead-
'■*■*■ ers in 1912, when they blocked the naval
proposals of the Borden Government, scoffed at
the advice of the British Admiralty, scorned the
thought of war, and idealised the character of the
Kaiser as a peacemaker and the German nation as
a peace-loving people, one would think that today,
with the British Empire tacingsuch a tremendous,
crisis, they would be, metaphysically, in sackcloth
and ashes.
1 i
The following extract from an article by a
distinguished writer in the latest issue of the
"Round Table," a non-political publication devoted
to the welfare of the Empire, places the case clearly
and unmistakably. It is well worth the thoughtful
consideration of all Canadians who have the
welfare of the Empire at heart:--
" The people of the British Empire have learnt
much during the last three months, and will learn
more still before the war is over, as to the true
source of their strength. Command of sea, now
as always, stands between the Empire and destruction. Command of sea is all that separates j
victory and disaster. So long as the British Navy
commands the sea the British Empire cannot be
defeated. If it loses command of the sea the Empire cannot win. All discussion of financial,
economic, or other war problems, must finally
come down to that simple elementary truth, and
it would be well were it burnt into the mind of
every subject of the King throughout the world.
" If a defeat were ever to come, then Great
Britain, with all her dominions, would lose every-1
thing: Empire, possessions, shipping and com-'
merce. Their colonies would be taken, their coaling stations seized, their ships sunk and their
commerce destroyed; all that would be an easy
task for a victorious fleet. Neither Conventions
nor Declarations, neither Hague Tribunals nor
Laws of Nations, would prevent our foes from
employing every weapon to their hand for our
destruction. 1 Fortunately, we have good faith
that the British fleet is more than equal to the task
before it, and for this let us be thankful that we
did not listen to those misguided doctrinaires, who
wilh their incapacity to look facts in the face, to
distinguish the real from the unreal, urged us in
season and out of season to weaken our fleet, and
fatally to reduce even that small margin of insurance on which not a few paltry millions, but our
whole life and nationhood, depend. Let us also,
throughout the Empire, mark and learn the lessons
which this war will teach us. While every part of
the Empire is equally and vitally concerned in the
command of the sea, yet the very breath of the
Empire's fleet is unity. If the Grand Fleet itself
is defeated, small, weak, and distant squadrons
must either ^uselessly keep their harbour or be
sent to the bottom. The shores and commerce of
all the Dominions, as well as of the British Islands,
will then be open to the attack of the victorious
enemy. The whole Empire is, therefore, equally
concerned in the Navy's strength, and it is vital to
every part that in this and every war there shall
be present on the day of decision and at the decisive point an irresistible and united Fleet."
The
Market Value
of Printing
Ilif printing used success-
^ fully to sell merchandise there are two
values. One includes
the material and labor used;
the other results from the
the ability to make the
printing effective as a selling
force. One value is produced
mechanically, the other by
mental processes which are
similar to those employed
by # architects and in the
various professions, and this
is very frequently the larger
value.
The printer sells to the
manufacturers and the merchants the most potential
and profitable method of
salesmanship that has been
or ever will be devised.
The cost of selling by
printing is very much less
than by any other plan
equally far-reaching in
scope.
The permanent character
of the results that are obtained by printed salesmanship is one of its most
remarkable qualities.
The printer's art can extend the customer's market
as far as the ambition and
enterprize of the customer
prescribes, bridging seas
and crossing continents,
and speaking all tongues.
No other expenditure
returns itself so quickly,
bringing with it a perennial
stream of profits, as that
for printing.

armlet they bear the Red Cross
sign, but this has not prevented
the Germans on many occasions
from firing on them in order that
they may be prevented from succoring and binding up the wounded and the fallen.
These are brave women, and
when the smoke of battle has
died away and peace has once
again been restored upon the
continent of Europe, the work
that thev have performed and the
brave acts they have done will be
written in letters of gold in the
imperishable annals of British
history. That the work of the
Red Cross nurses does not merely
comprize looking after and tending the wounded will be shown
by the following intensely interesting account of the work of
Lieut. Amy Neale, whose letter
to her brother, Lieut. J.B. Neale,
of the 10th Royal Grenadiers, of
Toronto, was recently published
in the Toronto Sunday World.
In the course of her letter Miss
Neale says: "A short time ago a
very long train s'opped at our
siding about 10 p.m.   lt contain-
''I was on duty here at the
station," continues Miss Neale,
