B.C. Electric Propose
Huge Power Project
For Campbell River
Plans Xre Filed; 157,000 Horsepower is Involved
VICTORIA, B.C., June 23.—The B. C. Electric Railway Co. in an
endeavor to obtain greater control of the water power of northern Vancouver Island filed plans with the Provincial Water
Board for the development of 157,000 horsepower here Saturday.
It is anticipated that the project will bring to a head the worrying question of damming Buttle Lake, and the ultimate spoliation
of Strathcona Park thereby.
If the plans of the power company go into effect, experts declare the lake will rise and spoil a considerable amount of timber,
bought by the government two years ago for park purposes. Timber about the shores of the lake, would have to be logged before
the plan became feasible, it is said.
A temporary dam would not raise ~
the lake but would hold lt at Its present level. If however, the plan became permanent, a dam 32 feet highs
would be necessary. This would cause
the lake to rise about 30 feet, and
would necessitate the logging of the
shore timber.
Inimical to Tourists?
Those not in favor of this plan believe that the drawing off of water at
various times during the year would
cause a "shore" of mud and silt, which
would not be In the interests of visitors and tourists. Engineers, are of the
opinion, that water would not be
drawn off until mid-winter when the
park is not used as a tourist resort.
The plans filed reeval a huge scheme
of three power plants and four dams,
the harnessing of Elk River falls, and
the industrial work at Buttle Lake.
The project immediately brings Into
conflict the greater Industrialization of
this part of Vancouver Island, and the
policy of the B. C. government regarding Its park areas ln the sites under
consideration.
Views to be Aired
The policy advocated by the power
corporation will come before Major J.
C. Macdonald, provincial water comptroller, and all those who have views
on the subject will be given the opportunity of airing them, it is said.
The B. C. Electric has not declared
when it will put the plans into operation. This Is believed to depend upon
the need for power and the industrial
outlook.
Plans Med ask fer the entire flow of
Campbell River from Buttle Lake to
the sea, and call for plants at Trout
Pool, at Elk Falls and at Lodore Falls.
All this power will eventually be used.
The ultimate plans call far a continuous supply of 71,000 horsepower at Elk
Falls and a continuous supply of 14,000
horsepower from Trout Pool.
It is belleevd that stiff opposition
wiU eventuate before the plans reach
their final stage.

Angle column in the Vancouver Daily
Province as the "best fish story of
the week."
The coastwise steamer, "Grifco",
called in at Union Bay on Saturday
for coal.

Impressions Of
The Big Game
There was a fairly large number of
Cumberlanders present at the soccer
game'in Nanaimo on Saturday last
when the Nanaimo eleven stacked up
against the touring Englishmen. A
rough estimate placed the number of
spectators between 2200 and 2500
and during the waiting period, the
Nanaimo city band entertained the
crowd with many very fine selections.
The Englishmen were the first to
appear on the field and received a
great ovation. Tommy Magee trotted
on just as full of life as ever, But
did he bother punting the ball around-
Well, I'll say he didn't. He tested the
ground, It had been newly rolled
after the recent rains, then shaded
his eyes and took in the position of
the sun, then was ready for the
game. The Nanaimo boys appeared all
dressed up in a light blue shirt, n
good and sufficient contrast to the
Englishmen's white shirts and blue
pants.
At the start of the game the Nanaimo boys received lots of encouragement from their supporters and booted the ball around with reckless
abandon, the half backs appearing
content to get rid of the ball at arty
cost, the consequence being that the
forwards were running their heads
to try and reach balls that Percy Williams could not have caught. Still the
early part of the game was very even
as Englishmen appeared to be content
to take things somewhat easy, sort
of sizing up their opponents. After
the measure of the opponents had
been well taken ,the tourists commenced tb put 6h"pre's_ure and "scored
three goals before half time.' Matt.
Guinis spoiled the first portion of the
game by arguing with two of the
Englishmen, Magee and Smith over
a throw in awarded to .Nanaimo
which was plainly not Nanaimo's ball.
The incident occurred very close to
the press box and all the scribes had
a clear view of the incident. However
Matt remained firm and stood to his
guns awarding the throw to Nanaimo.
Two or three other incidents occurred
during the game which did not do the
official arbiter much credit. As one
of the tourists remarked. "Yon mon
is some referee, he'll spoil the game
for anybody." '
If the first half had shown that the
Englishmen knew the game, the second half showed them to be part
masters. The short passing game wps
tried for awhile, then when the outside men were unmarked ,the long
perfect pass would be tried, and during the whole of the game we did not
notice one single ball wasted. Goals
were continually put on until seven
were reached when Archibald placed
a nice cross from the right past the
visitors' goalie. The Englishmen replied right away with number eight
and just before the final whistle Nanaimo got a penalty which was converted. The final score was 8 to 2.
It appeared to us that the Nanaimo half backs and backs did not give
either their forwards or goal keeper
a chance. Half backs and backs
crowding the goal does not help thc
play, in fact it impedes the play. A
half back cannot serve up to his forward properly from the goal mouth.
Furthermore, wc believe that the!
backs and goalie would play much
better if less crowding took place.
The tourists did not crowd their goal,
the result being that thc goal tender
was able to save crosses ten and
fifteen yards out of the goal mouth.
The game was very interesting to
watch and we sincerely hope our
young pluyors got quite a lesson from
thc play of thc tourists. Ball control
wns mugnificent with positional play
being perfect. It is about the best
English team seen in Canada in a
great many years. In fact many claim
it to be the best to have ever toured
Canada.

FREIGHT TRAINS AS
FACTORS IN HISTORY.
The story of the hardy frontiersmen transporting necessities across
the 1600 miles of unconquered territory lying between the Mississippi
and the gold fjelds of California is
unfolded in a great moving picture
spectacle at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, June
29, 30 and July lst. "Fighting Caravans" shows the part freight trains
played in history, different from the
part played by thc early covered wagons.
" 'Fighting Caravans' can be best
described as the story of those hardy
old frontiersmen of 'The Covered
Wagon', beating out new trails, making ,n»w history, conquering the old
West," says Thompson. "It is a continuation of the exploits of the two
beloved characters, Bill Jackson and
Jim Bridger, portrayed by Ernest
Torrencc and Tully Marshall in Emerson Hough's 'The Covered Wagon."
"They are still two old scouts, but
whereas in 'The Covered Wagon' they
fought off Indiuns for small pioneer
wagons, in 'Fighting Cnravans' they
arc performing the much harder job
of protecting a caravan of huge
freight wagons.
" 'The Covered Wagon* took place
in 18-18, just before the days of the
Korty-Ninors; 'Fighting Caravans'
takes in the period around 186.1, 15
years later and just before the Civil
War."

Farmer Burned
Using Gasoline
To Start Fire
Narrow Escape of Merville Man
Ted Piercy, son of Mr. Harvey
Piercy, of Denman Island and who \i
farming the .Millard farm at Merville
had a very narrow escape from serious injury when he attempted to light
a fire in the kitchen stove with gasoline which he had mistaken for coal
oil. The bottle of gasoline exploded
and M r. Piercy rushed from the
house with his clothes on fire. Fortunately for him there was a horse
trough full of water close to the
house, in which the burning man
threw himself, escaping with minor
burns. The house which had caught
fire burned to the ground.
The house was owned by Mr. Edward Millard, cousin of Mr. Piercy
and he was in Courtenay at the time
of the fire,
Powell River
Defeat The
Local Rinks
First  Inter-Club Game Marred by
Inclement Weather
The Cumberland lawn bowlers had
been looking forward to the visit of
the Powell River bowlers on Sunday
last with keen anticipation, but were
very much disappointed at the weather man, who was without doubt on his
worst behaviour. The visitors arrived
a little later than anticipated, owing
to the stormy crossing. However,
transportation from Union Bay was
waiting for them and the party soon
were having dinner at the Union
Hotel, as guests of the local lawn
bowlers.
After dinner thc green waa visited,
but how it rained. At one time it
looked almost impossible to attempt
to play, but Harry Joekson got five
rinks going and on account of the
wet it was decided to play 15 ends
instead of 20 as previously arranged.
The visitors won by a score of 69
points to 65, but as can be easily imagined from the scores the honors
were very evenly divided. Cumberland won three out of the five rinks,
but the visitors amassed a greater
number of points for the two won.
Scores were as follows:
Harry Jackson's rink won from
Park's rink, 14-12; W. Mossey's rink
won from Southcott's rink, 17-12;
Gibb's rink won from Leiper's rink,
16-11; T. D. Robertson's rink loBt to
Clark's rink, 7-16; J. Fellows* rink
lost to Young's rink, 11-18.
Refreshments were served during
the afternoon to the visitors and
home players and a real social time
enjoyed. After extending a cordial invitation to the Cumberland bowlers to
visit Powell River in the near future
the party left foi Comox where the
boat for the Paper Town was caught
about six o'clock. In spite of the
heavy showers a real good time was
spent by all.
CUMBERLAND
"LAWN BOWLERS "■*■      *" *****!'    ■"
LOSE AT NANAIMO.
Taking advantage of the trip to see
the English soccer team in action on
Saturday last, three rinks of lawn
bowlers from this city took down
their bowls and engaged the Nanaimo
bowlers in a series of games, being
defeated by the more experienced Nanaimo men by a score of 68-37. The
games were very enjoyable, but the
Cumberland bowlers found the Nanaimo green very fast, which took
the Cumberland men some time to
get accustomed to. After the games
refreshments were served and a jolly
time thoroughly enjoyed.
Whilst in Nanaimo the tournament
committees met and made arrangements for the home and home games
between the two clubs for thc Villiers
cup which will be played the first
Saturday in August in Nanaimo and
on the last Saturday in August in
Cumberland, total points in the two
games to decide thc holder of the cup
for the following twelve months.

A WORD TO GRADUATES
A PRACTICAL committeeman, in presenting
diplomas last June, to a graduating class spoke
as follows: "Girls, in presenting you these diplomas, it', bv their significance you are led to
allow your mother to do all the work, bake all the
bread, sweep all the floors because you can read
Latin or demonstrate a theorem in geometry, then
has your school been a most unfortunate course,
and in all the teachings you have ever received at
my hands, 1 trust there has been no lesson that
has weaned you from the dish pan. Boys: if from
this graduation you go into the world too nice to
carry wood and swill the hogs, if need be, then has
our'school failed in its purpose and sown the
wrong seed."
LETS FROWN ON THE WALKATHON
THE WALKATHON is making its appearance
in Nanaimo this week-end. Frankly speaking
we thought Nanaimo folks were a little above
the average and would taboo anything like patronizing a bunch of idiots. We cannot find any other
name for them. The! people who patronize walka-
tlions at 25c and 60c per head are just about as
crazy as those participating. What earthly good
is it'to see these dumb doras parading round and
round until one after another drops from sheer exhaustion, the one remaining standing or walking
at the finish being declared the winner for a paltry
few dollars. Thank Cod here is no hall in Cumberland where a walkathon could be staged, and if
there was a hall methinks the good people of this
burg would band themselves together and give
the promoters of these idiotic conests, a long,
long walk, back to whence they came. These promoters must have studied the old slogan of Barn-
um, of Barnum and Bailey circus fame, who once
said, "There's a sucker born every minute."
By all means let's frown on the walkathons.
A DECLINING INDUSTRY
MR. C. H. DICKIE (Nanaimo) has seized upon some
vital points of the Bennett fiscal policy in his contribution to the debate on the budget. He sees in the
steps taken for fiscal re-establishment the effort to stop
the How oi" capital from this country to the United States.
He sees in the changes in the tariff schedules a movement
to aiVest the flow of imports and the consequent keeping
at home of money which has been leaving the Dominion.
Mr. Dickie recognizes that it is not a good'thing for a
country, in tradink with another country, to have an
adverse balance of $4110,000,001) as was the case as between Canada and the United States during 1920 and
1927. That adverse balance Mr. Bennett has set out to
redress.
Mr. Dickie very naturally stressed the decline in eoal
production in British Columbia, with particular relation
to Vancouver Island. In 1910 this Island produced 1,610,-
030 tons of coal, and last year, despite a greatly increased
population, production has fallen to 9S8.805 tons. In 1910
5,0-11,710 gallons of fuel oil were imported, and in 1930
the fuel oil consumed in the province was estimated at
130,000,000 gallons. That illustrates why the coal has
been declining, and why Mr. Dickie has made a strong
plea that something should be done to put thc industry
on a better basis. He admits that the bonus of 25 cents
a ton on coal used for fuel purposes, for ships' stores or
for export, will do some good, but it will not accomplish
what is needed. He pleads for a higher bonus, and it is w
secure this that Dr. S. F. Tolmie is now using every endeavor with Ottawa. Mr. Dickie fails to see why wc
should send four or live or six millions of dollars annually
to enrich the people of California, while our coal miners
are only working part time, and sometimes not working
at all.
Mr. Dickie has dealt wtih essentials -in the budget debate. He has spoken particularly about the basic industry
of his own constituency and the need of fostering it. He
has put the case forward in clear cut fashion, just as it
was laid before Senator Gideon Robertson at the conference he held here on unemployment relief. Thc case of
the eoal miners of Vancouver Island is a bard one. There
is still ample eoal, but a restricted market and overmuch
competition from fuel oil. Mr. Dickie has enlightened
Parliament on the situation and there should be some
hope of an even greater measure of Federal aid that has
been outlined in the budget. —Daily Colonist

and 11
DANCE IN EVENING
Under the auspices of the Native
Sons of Canada, July 1 will be an outstanding holiday for Courtenay and
district. Sharp at 10:30 a.m. the day
will commence when the call of "Play
ball" will resound in Lewis Park. Prom
that tlfte until 7:10 p.m. when the last
high dive is executed in the waters of
the Courtenay River, there will be
something to attract attention. There
are sports for children, sports for
adults, and sports for loggers, and at
the end of a perfect day, there will be
a big dance in the Native Sons hall.
An energetic committee has left nothing undone to make July 1. the outstanding holiday in the history of local
sport.
The committee in charge of events
is composed of M. S. Stephens, president; Miss D. Hames, secretary and
Mr. P. McPherson, treasurer. These
together with Mr. L. Piket and Mr. J.
W. McKenzie, Jr., consist of the executive committee. Chairmen of committees include, Mrs. M. McKenzie,
catering; Mr. J. Sutton, sports; Mr.
' R. A. Lyons, children's sports; grounds,

Shades of old Russia and its magnificent pomp and splendor are being
revived by Edwin Carewe in "Resurrection," the Universal picture, which
shows at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, July 9, 10
and 11.
One scene shows Prince Dmitri, tall
handsome and romantic, escorted by
Major Schoenboch, to have his flrst
experience with wine and women. It
is a gala scene in the production, with
several hundred beautiful women exquisitely gowned adding to its brilliance.
A special set of massive design and
beauty was constructed for this episode which Carewe has made into one
of many outstanding scenes in the
famous Tolstoi Russian love story.
John Boles is Prince Dmitri, Lupe
Velez is the little servant maid, Kat-
usha Maslova. William Keighley plays
Major Schoenboch. Many more important names appear in the cast.
Angry Bull Throws
Mr. Roy Cliffe
Mr. Roy Cliffe recently had a very
narrow escape from his bull. He was
leading the animal with a staff when
it suddenly became unmanageable. It
threw Mr. Cliffe over his back and
then fell on him. Mr. Cliffe was lucky
to escape with only a few bruises dne,
no doubt to the fact that the bull had
no horns.
St. Joseph's Hospital
Comox, Benefits
From Bazaar
Once again old King Sol forgot to
shine for the Ladies' Hospital Auxiliary. As a consequence the annual
garden party in aid of St. Joseph's
Hospital was turned into a bazaar last
Wednesday and was held In the Native
Sons' Hall instead of on the beautiful
hospital grounds.
In spite of the change, however, the
financial results were most satisfactory
as nearly four hundred dollars were
taken ln during the afternoon in return for needlework, home cooking,
candy, tea and chances on the houste-
housie.
Promptly at three o'clock, Mr. J. A.
Carthew appeared on the platform accompanied by Mayor Macintyre, Dr.
Briggs and Dr. McKee.   Mr. Carthew
welcomed all the visitors and expressed his disappointment that it had not
been possible to hold the fete on the
grounds. He then reviewed the work
that had been done during the past
year or two. In addition he briefly
ran over the statistics for the last year.
There had been 481 patients treated
and 19 deaths had occurred. Five of
.these patients had been In a dying
condition when admitted to the hospital. There had been 86 births which
was a record; 184 surgical operations
had been performed and 74 X-ray examinations.
During the whole afternoon the tea
tables were kept filled continually
while each stall did equally well in its
own line of business.
Convenors of Stalls
The following were the stall holders, the flrst mentioned in each case
being convenor: Candy—Mrs. Capes,
Mrs. H. M. Ellis, Mrs. Nelson; Home-
cooking—Mrs. Briggs, Mrs. W. Brown,
Mrs. Sutton; Children's work—Mrs. C.

Mines  Department
To Investigate
Non-Metallic s
A.  M.  Richmond To Work  In
Conjunction   Wilh   Mr.
J. D. Galloway
MAY TAKE YEAR
VICTORIA, Juno 23.—What are
the resources of British Columbia ln
non-metallic minerals? What are the
possibilities for their economic development in greater degree than at present? These, and other questions relating to provincial non-metallics, are
to be investigated by the Department
of Mines, according to a statement
made yesterday by the Honorable W.
A. McKenzle, Minister of Mines.
It was announced by Mr. McKenzle
that Mr. A. M. Richmond, Assistant
Resident Engineer at Nelson, B. C„
had been released temporarily from
his regular duties under the "Mineral
Survey and Development Act" and Instructed to undertake a study of these
questions. He Is to assemble all information available, and compile a report for general distribution, under the
supervision of Mr. J. D. Galloway, Provincial Mineralogist.
The present extent of the industry
Is shown by the fact that structural
materials output in 1930 amounted to
$4,092,568 and in addition other non-
metallic minerals produced were valued at $436,234, making a total of
$4,528,802, or 8.2 per cent of the gross
value of the mineral output for the
year. Coal Is, of course, not considered in these figures, as it is a separate
class of mining by Itself.
The present Investigation will corn-
pile the available information and sup.
plement it with further field work and
testing of samples of the various de-
posits. In addition, lt is planned to
make a survey of markets to ascertain
if British Columbia minerals are avail-
able to replace those imported either
in raw or manufactured form.
Asked to state what non-metallics
would be included in the investigation
ordered, Mr. McKenzle said that no
limit had been set to Mr. Richmond's
activities. His studies, however, would
include broadly the whole field of non-
metallic minerals, but with investigation of special features rather than a
general survey.
Mr. McKenzie appreciates that lt Is
a large undertaking. In all probability, it will not be completed Inside of
a year. His hope, however, was that
it will be possible for Mr. Richmond
to submit progress reports from time
to time. If so, these would be Issued
as such and given general distribution
among all of those who may be Interested.
Prospectors and owners of non-
metallic deposits which they think
may be of value are requested to forward samples and descriptive Information to the Bureau of Mines at Victoria.

In offering two feature pictures at the price of one the
management does not wish to convey the impression
that it is offering quantity in place of quality. Tho
two features make up a good two-hour programme and
are first-class productions. "Hook Line and Sinker"
has the same stars as "Half Shot at Sunrise" and is
rated as Al comedy. "The Air Police" is a gangster
story with a new twist. Instead of the customary automobile, areoplanes have been brought into use, and the
result is a thrilling short feaure. We highly recommend this programme for two hours of varied entertainment.

Questions concerning health, addressed to the Canadian Medical Association, 184 College St.,
Toronto, will be answered per-
HOLIDAY?
Shawnigan Lose
To Courtenay
We place a question mark after
holiday because it would be interesting if each one who reads this far
would say to himself what he thinks
a holiday is. We have another reason
for the query, because we are anxious
to know what will be the results of
the holiday.
Holidays are excellent. Everyone
should have a chance to get away
from his regular task, and this includes the housewife who has the
hardest task of all. The break from
the usual routine of life is a good
physical and mental tonic. Holidays
provide the time of recuperation and
storing up of energy.
We are not going to attempt to
plan your holiday for you. There are
great differences in people and what
appeals to one offers no attractions
for others. The man who is fond of
fishing cannot understand why everyone does not enthuse about rising at
daybreak and going miles to catch
fish. The golfer lis sure that his game
affords the one real holiday, and thc
young people are amused nt their
elder's idea of a good time.
Holidays should mean a good time,
and all we have to suggest is that a
bit of planning beforehand will not
interfere with the good time, and it
will prevent some of the occurrences
which are apt to spoil a holiday.
It is certainly not a good holiday if
you develop typhoid fever when you
get back home. It would have bcen
much better had you asked ahead of
time about the water supply, or to
have boiled or chlorinated the water
you used if you were not sure of its
purity. The clear stream or the sparkling spring may be contaminated with
typhoid germs—Why take a chance?
Sunshine is good. A coat of tan is
a coat of health. Over-exposure to
the sun, however .leads to serious
discomfort from sunburn, and if excessive, may cause heat prostration.
Better, to go slowly and to be holidaying every day of your vacation
than to spend several days in misery,
shut out from the fun because you
overdid exposure to the sun the first
day or two.
There is really not much consistency about the parent who carefully
safeguards his children at home and
then, during vacation, exposes them
to any danger that comes along because of some peculiar idea that disease is unknown in the country and
that you become healthy just by living there. The country is a fine place
but disease germs are found there
just as they are elsewhere. The tuberculous cows live on the farm, and if
your children drink their milk while
you are in the country, they will get
tuberculosis just as surely as if they
used that milk in the city. In most
cities the milk is pasteurized and
made safe. It is just as necessary to
take this precaution in the country.
You cannot tell from the appearance
of a cow whether or not she is tuberculous.
Do not spoil your holiday by being
over-fussy about things, but on the
other hand, do not spoil it by failing
to give some attention to such important matters as water, milk and
food supplies.
Courtenay Cricket Club journeyed
to Shawnigan Lake on Saturday, June
20, to play the Shawnigan Lake School
second eleven and defeated them 104
to 58. Inglis batted well for his side
carrying his bat for a wonderful 45.
Hodgson also contributed a good 29.
The bowling was done by Galloway,
P. Ellis, Hodgson and McLoughlin.
McLoughlin had the good average of
four wickets for 12 runs. For Shawnigan Robertson had a well played 26
and Kennedy took six wickets for 31
runs.
The visitors were treated royally and
thoroughly enjoyed the trip. They
hope to meet the first eleven ln their
next game.
Good Display At
Courtenay School
An excellent display of work was
exhibited by the Domestic Science
Class and Manual Training Class of
the Courtenay school on Friday afternoon. Some really excellent pieces of
work done by pupils from grades six
to eight were shown and a great deal
of credit is due Miss D. Cannon and
Mr. Tilbe, who are in charge of the
classes.

Burde, M.C., of Alberni, in the slander suit against Mayor Kendall, of Alberni, the conclusion of trial which
lasted until 2:45 p.m. Wednesday,
Chief Jutsice Morrison said he con
sidered the plaintiff had made his
case and was entitled to some recognition in spite of his counsel stating
that he did not seek damages of a
substantial nature.
"All this will be in vain, His Lordship said, if it will not serve as a lesson to the community of Alberni,
particularly to those who are interested in the advancement of that bail-
ive in the carrying on of the civic
affairs as far as rational and reasonable, and with a single eye to the
interest of a community, if they
would leave out these personal controversies. The grave aspect of slander and libel is, that it does tend to
a breach of the peace and creates
feeling of that kind, all to the detriment of the community."
His Lordship reserved judgment in
the case of Brown vs. Fleming, asking $13,000 for loss of leg and medical attention in connection with a collision in Alberni between the plaintiff
W. Brown, and the defendants Archibald Flemming, his wife and daughter, Miss Kathleen, driver of the automobile that collided with a motorcycle driven by Brown.
When the slander case opened Major Burde was put in the witness box
and he told the story of the event
leading up to the charge being laid by
him which occurred last March, following a Council meeting. He was
discussing constitutional points with
Alderman McMillan at the time when
Mayor Kendall got into what was de-

Cumberland,  B.C.
signed to be a friendly argument, accusing Burde of not upholding British justice when he was the city's
chief magistrate, by putting through
the City Council a resolution to defraud the city, at a time when Cronk
and Bayliss were city officials. Bay-
liss, the city treasurer, was convicted
of falsifying the city books, and in
the plaintiff's opinion while he knew
nothing crooked about Mr. Cronk, he
had heard suggestions to that effect
and Mayor Kendall's remarks in his
opinion sort of reflected on the affair.
Alderman A. Flemming, a witness
for the plaintiff, recalled the occasion
and the conversation and swore that
Mayor Kendall had stated to Burde
that he, Burde, had helped "Crook
Cronk" to defraud and beat the city
out of light and water rates, and that
he had also helped to cover up
Cronk's dirty work. From the conversation and remarks made by Kendall
Witness thought that Cronk might in
some way be connected with Bayliss
in defrauding the _ity in 1927. He
said Kendall had circulated a petition
asking for the removal of Cronk and
that an independent man be appointed until the alleged irregularities
were investigated.
In cross-examination witness admitted to Mr. Cunliffe that no one
had mentioned Bayliss' name directly
in connection with Cronk to his knowledge, but Kendall had said Bayliss
took checks to Burde to be signed in
beer parlors. He was of the opinion,
however, that Kendall imputed with
his remarks that Mr. Burde was conspiring with Cronk to defraud the
city. He believed in his own mind that
Mr. Kendall believed the conversations that were going around.
Mr. Fowler, foreman of the Public
Works department of thc municipality stated that Kendall had asked
Burde if it was upholding British justice to pass a reslution upholding
"crook Cronk's" light and water bills,
and that Bayliss had taken checks to
beer parlors for him to sign. It gave
witness the impression that Kendall
was sort of blaming Cronk for thc
same trouble that Bayliss got into, hc
said. Witness had heard Mayor Kendall make a speech in which he stated
that he would not call Cronk a crook
and a thief, but pointing his finger
he had exclaimed that he wanted to
know where the money went.
Witness admitted that he had been
suspended once by Mayor Kendall
but that he had been reinstated since.
W. H. Bradley, city clerk for the
past two years, took the minutes of
the Council meeting on the night the
slanderous statements were allegedly
later made. He heard Mayor Kendall
ask Major Burde if it was enforcing
British justice when he was in the
Council to defraud the city out of
Cronk's water and light bills. Major
Burde had replied that he would give
a donation to the hospital and two
pages of his paper if Kendall could
prove it. He aiso heard the statement
about the checks being signed in beer
parlors. Witness knew, as assistant
city clerk, that the water and light
accounts had been settled and the
thought occurred to him after Mayor
Kendall's statement that their might
be something more between Cronk
and Bayliss than witness knew.
Alderman McMillan, contractor,
gave practically the same evidence
about the British justice story and
the street corner talk about Cronk.
He heard Kendall say to Burde, "you
are not satisfied with running the city
but you are now trying to run the
Aldermen," and the argument followed.
Alderman Douglas Stone, witness
for the defense, said he was present
during the argument in the Council
chambers after the regular meeting.
He heard some loud talking in one
end of the room as he was hurrying
through some work to take the mayor
home. He heard Major Burde soy it
was not British justice or constitutional to have the Burasso case heard
in open council. I heard the mayor
reply, "was it constitutional when
Cronk's wages were raised twenty
dollars a month to pay his light bill,
and wns it constitutional to have
checks signed in beer parlors." Witness noticed that Major Burde had a
few drinks. He was noisy, he said.
On the witness stand Mayor Kendall emphatically denied having called Cronk a crook, and being hard of
hearing, hc appeared to lie at a disadvantage as questions had to be
shouted at him. Hc said Burde had
thrown out an insinuation thnt he, ns
Mayor, and his Council were not upholding British justice and witness
had nsked him if it was right to raise
Cronk's salary from $120 to $150 per
month to enable him to pay delinquent water and light bills.
He denied that he had made thc
allegation that Burde had passed resolutions to cover up Cronk's dirty
work, describing it as an absolute
falsehood. He admitted thut Major
Burde and himself had not been good
friends and that he was fined $20.00
when Cronk had prosecuted him and
had turned off his water. Witness said
he had appealed the case before
Judge Barker when thc appeal was
lost. He agreed he wrote the petition
that was circulated, but declared his
statements had bcen misconstrued in
regard to Mr. Burde as he only meant
to infer thai the money that Bayliss
took would have been saved if Cronk
had been properly attending to his
official duties. He said Burde had provoked him thc night of thc argument
and on many occasions previously
during the past two years. He thought
he was only doing the right thing to
resent Burde'8 comments and uphold
ing thc dignity of his Council as
Mayor of thc town.
