At a  very  well  attended  meeting I WHILE  VISITINd
held in the council chambers on Tuos- j Mr9 y Hmmy w,ffl o( Mr } Hml.

the balance left from the 24th of May i some time ago to visit relatives In

It had been regularly moved and se-!was Wl """ Alr"' Han"u>' wm,ld bo
{ buck In Cumberland short I v, much
conded that the sum of $200 be do- iny)roved |n heftlth| and „ mn a gnAt
nated towards the water sports, 8nock to Mr. Hannay and the many
which it was expected would be held friends of the family when word was
at Lake Cumberland. The total bal-, reCelved on Tuesday afternoon that
ance left trom tbe 24th of .Mav am | MrfJi Hannay had passed away at the
ounted to $338.89, but as explained
by Mr. McKinnon the treasurer, there
was a possibility of a bill for $10.00,
which would have to be paid, bringing
The balance down to $220.81'.
The motion of Mr. Brown, that th
yum of $200 be voted the water sports
committee, brought Mr. Shenstone to
his feel In an effort to Ret thu meeting to vote a sum towards Hie expenses of a trainer to accompany the
High School athletes to Vancouver
A genera! discussion followed and Ot
times the meeting became quite heated, a lot of opposition being shown
to the granting of $50,00, the sum
mentioned by Mr. Shenstone us being
necessary to meet the expenses of a
trainer going over to Vancouver for
three days. The mayor, who was iu
the chair, gave the meeting full scope
to dfspuss the two propositions and
rafter several more members had
voiced their opinions ,the motion that
$200 be voted towards the aportn
committee carried. Mr. Apps, of the
Public school staff, then moved that
the sum or $25,00 of the remaining
balance be voted towards tli
peases of a trainer going to Vancouver wj)h tbe high school atheletes, It
was explained that tbe school boys
going over to compete would hav
their expenses paid by the sponsor
of the movement in Vancouver. The
meeting was by no means favorable
to granting any sum from the 24th
of May fund for expenses of a trainer
•going to Vancouver. However, the
plQttoh went through, $25,00 being
votea.
The Mayor explained that it had
been suggested to him that it might
be an opportune time to hold tbe
water sports at the middle of July
and as the H.M.S. Colombo would be
ln the harbor at that time, an invitation could be extended to tbe personnel of the batleship to be present and
take part in some of the events. Mr.
Partridge objected to the sports being
held iu July. He claimed that the
water was too cold and also that local
swimmers and not yet hadan opportunity to go into the water. He favored holding tbe sports in Augus;
and went on record as being opposed
to allowing outsiders to compete with
local swimmers on an even footing,
maintaining that all outsiders should
be penalized- Mr. J. Vernon-Jones
thought that July 13th, as suggested
by the Mayor, a most suitable day,
claiming It would be a good opportunity for the citizens of Cumberland
to entertain the navy boys. He accordingly moved that the sports be
held on Saturday, July 13, Mr. Partridge moved an amendment that the
sports he bold tn August, but as ho
got no seconder, tbe motion carried.
Officers were then elected to carry
on the work of the water sports, with
thc following result:
President, Mayor Alex. Maxwell;
(secretary, J, L. Brown; treasurer, A.
McKinnon; Finance Committee. Joe
Dallos, R. Coe. Joe Horbury. W. Williams and W. Henderson Jr.; sports

CAMPING AND HEALTH
DURING the next few months the schools of
the nations will close for the summer vacation, and from the great cities, the small villages, the bustling townships, and the restful
hamlets, the thoughts of nearly a million khaki-
clad Boy Scouts will turn to camping. Cities of
tents will spring up in the woodlands, signal
towers will lift their gaunt arms upward, and over
the hilltops and woodlands, the glow of a thousand campftres will flicker.
Restless boys, through with school and eager
for adventure, will go out into the forests. They
will work and play in the sun and the rain. They
will swim and hike, rest and eat, be tired and
sleep. They will learn the stories of the forests,
and glean from nature lessons which to them are
entirely new- They will be led by strong-hearted,
clear-eyed men; men who know the woodlands
and understand boys.
Then the autumn will come! From the mountain sides and the woodlands, the lake fronts and
the seashores, with renewed confidence and vigor,
the boys of America will return to their city
homes. They will be the same boys, but unlike
the boys who went away. Strong-bodied, clear-
eyed, brown and husky, they will swing back into
their daily activities. Home, school, church and
nation will gain by the summer that each Hoy
Scout has spent in the open. Each will receive
from the camper, the wealth of eagerness, courage, faith, hope and knowledge that the boys
bring back with them from the summer camps,
where self-reliance has been taught.
Have you a boy who is of Scout age? If you
have, see to it that he joins the Boy Scouts and
goes to a Boy Scout camp, lt will pay him dividends in happiness and health, and the summer
be one of the most interesting of his life. The
Boy Scout Movement has as its purpose, charac-

THE FEOI'E PAT
Deer Sir:
The question ol" provictiiiK a public
Utilities commission is the most important one that lias come before the
Legislature this session. IT public
utility companies are noi controlled,
the consequence will be that the most
ambitious of our young people must
migrate to the United Slates.
There is no exaggeration in Mini
statement. The experiences of Victoria City Council in seeking imlus
tries, and tlie decision of ihe Granby
Company to ship their ore to Tacoma,
prove that we can not have Industrie*
until we have cheap power. And without industries there are few opportunities for trained and educated men
and women.
All classes of citizens were represented by the Union of U. C. Municipalities, the Farmers' Institutes, the
flive railway uniona and the associated Baords of Trade of V. 1., when
those organizations appealed to tlie
Government to provide a public utilities commission to control th© cap
Ituallzaton and rates of public utility
companies and to hold our water-
power resources. Ontario. Quebec, I
Nova Scotia and other provinces have
such commissions. Hut in reply (o
those petitions we are informed thai
there will be an amendment to tho
Water Act, and that power sites on
the Campbell River and elsewhere
will be handed over to companies.
Only last week. General A .!>. Mc- j
Hae, chief Conservative whip, is reported to have said when speaking!
In the debate on water power re- \
sources. "I believe that the time ha?
come when we as a country should re-1
serve for the benefit of our people all j
the witter powers, to be developed b)
the Government in )>luek.s to di*uib-
Uiora and larger users." And the
guiding principle ol tiie Conservative
party as proclaimed by Mr. Ueuneti
is, dial we shall make Canada a great
nation wltbiu the Empire by using
tnii' resources tu keep Canadian citizens prosperous lu their own country.
It a majority of tha Conservative
members oi Uie Legislature are du-
lermined to Ignore the petitions ot uiel
people aud to forsake ihe principles
ol their party, tbe Conservatives ol j
ibis province will see that wg have
come ii- tne parting ot tbe ways, In I
that event the rank and tile ol tlw
Conservative party must either follow
Mr. Ueniiet who bus devoted his energies lo the service oi Canada, or
follow a band oi politicians who are,
serving company promotors whose'
Ilnaiicial jugglery is already driving
manutacturing and trade out of British Columbia and into the United
States. In such a predicament every
decern citizen will choose without a
moment's   hesitation.

I would also point out that it is tlie

ease, its victims suffer for years, during whioh time their earning powers
are reduced, consequently, Tuberculosis Isone of the greatest causes of
poverty. Also, because a large percentage of tuberculosis deaths occur
during early adult life, it is the reason why many children are left motherless or fatherless.
There isone particular point in
connection with this disease to which
we wish to draw the attention of our
readers. Tliis. that children are most
susceptible to tuberculosis. Without
in any way minimizing Uie dangers of
thc spread of tuberculosis in other
ways, it should be understood by al!
that it is the repealed exposure 1°
large doses of Infection that ia the
real practical danger, Living in tbe
home will) a tuberculous person, who
is ignorant of the fact that lie is suffering from the disease, or who.
knowing that ho has the disease, is
careless, it in almost certain that
repeated heavy doses of infection will
be passed to others in the home.
The young child living in the home
with a careless Ignorant tuberculous
person is almost, surely marked asa
victim of this disease. Infection received in childhood Is frequently responsible for the development of the
disease in later life.
If tuberculosis Is to be stamped
out, It la necessary that more care be
taken to protect young children, This
means that adults must take more
precaulotia since children cannot take
care of themselves, Because il Is
most frequently in tlie home that tuberculosis is spread, (he necessity for
care In tbe homo Is apparent. To
protect the children, adults must
preserve their own health, and must
practise living In such a maimer that
| tthey do not endanger their children,
No one would willingly expose his
childto disease, but where there Is
spitting, uncovered coughing aud
wieezing. and the use or common
drlnklng-cupB in tbe home, fie child
I In that home is not being given a
fair chance to escape disease. In
such a home, if there isa case of tuberculosis, the child will most certainly contract the disease.

1   Correspondence
i To the Editor of tbe Islander,
j Dear Sir:
j I believe It is generally known that
' tbe National Utilities Corporation
Ltd, through their agent Mr. Cbeser
Paulson have options on ito per cent
of the shares in tbe Electric Lighting
Co., Ltd., at a valuation of $S7,000.00
but 1 do not think the public aro
aware that a letter was sent by Mr.
Paulson to the Chairman of the Electric Light committee stating that if
the City Council would abandon the
idea of purchase the options would be
taken up and the rates to the consumers would be lowered to those already In effect under their management in Alberni, a lower rate thaa
that offered by the Mayor in the public meeting held not long ugo.
At this meeting the Mayor read a
statement showing Assets of $116,-
766.52 and assured the audience the
Company was making good prollts.
1 presume the Mayor considered the
statement was accurate; how then
can the Council Justify their offer nf
| $40,600.00. On the one hand the Mayor
trios to show the Company Is very
| valuable and making large profits and
Ion tbe other hand he tries to show it
1 is worth about a third of this value,
i Not very logical is it? One would
j think that the Council would not re-
! ly on the opinion of their valuation
, along and ignore the ousido offer and
tbe statement of Assets and risk re-
! sorting to arbitration proceedings if
! legally able to tlo so :is these facts
i must carry considerable weight and a
I higher price than $40,000.00 bo award-
j ed and probably all cost of such pro-
I ceedlngs will have to be met by the
j City.
The question of rates may have
i moved ibe Council to Initiate proceed-
: ings to expropriate but the question
• before the tax payers now Is one of
value and whether $40,000.00 is an
adequate price acceptable to arbira-
lors supposing there ts nn objection
, in law as to the i*Ifi"ht of exproprla-
| tion.
;    Why has the Council noi taken tbe
| usual precautions that a prudent bus-
t In ess man would take namely making
I further   and   better   investigation   as
I to the value of the Company's under-
[ takings  particularly  in  view  nr'  Mr.
I Paulson's offer and the statement of
Assets   and    Liabilities    which   they
j have in their possession.
1    Thanking you for your courtesy in
Inserting this  in  your paper.
Yours truly,
| Shareholder.

Fishermen To
Receive More For
1929 EC. Catch
Vancouver, June IS.—Following
several conferences between tho B. C.
Fishermen's Protective Association
aud the canned salmon section of tbe
Canadian Manufacturers' Association
a scale of prices has heen agreed upon for gill net caught fish in the area
north of the Fraser Itiver for tbe
1929 season, which will open June 'SO.
A distinction is made between
prices to lishermen operating their
own Independent gear and those using cannery genr. The former use
their own boats aud gear and pay all
expenses, while cannery gear fishermen aro supplied with free boats, nets
licenses and other incidentals.
The 1029 scale which Is said to be
acceptable to both parties, means
higher prices to fishermen for sock-
eyes and pinks than wore paid in
1928, otherwise the scale Is much the
same as last year.
For sockeye there is an Increase
from 50 cens to 51% cents, and for
pinks an increase from 3 to .1*4 cents.
The schedule for l!t29 is as follows:
Sockeye—Independent    57 V&    cents
each; cannery gear ,-*** cents each.
Red springs—independent su, cents
per pound; cannery gear. 5 cents per
pound caught in spring nets; or 35
cents and t!0 cents each, respectively
when caught in socekoyp nets.
Cohoes aud -steelheads -independents 30 cents each, cannery gear is
cents each.
Pinks 5 cents and 3 cents, chums
6 cents and V& cents, white springs
15 cents, and 10 cons each.
Some 4,0l)t fishermen along the coast
arc affected by the price agreement,
Dance Revue
Well Received
The Third Annual Dance Revue
presented by Miss Gwen Noel on Tuesday in the Ilo-Ilo Theatre at Cumberland and on Wednesday in the Gaiety
Theatre at Courtenay was very well
received by large and appreciative
audiences. Each item on the programme was beautifully carried out
by the graceful little dancers. Those
persons presenting individual dances
were worthy of special mention and,
their interpretations of the various
numbers were splendidly done.
The instructor, Miss Gwen Noel, de-;
serves a great deal of praise for the
way in which the dancers were trained. This was most noticeable in the
dance numbers in which the younger
children took part. The co-ordination
of movement was really remarkable in
such youngsters and reflects great
credit upon the instructor.

Fire Risk Great
This Summer
It Is customary at this season ot the
year to sound the usual warning about
recklessness with fire ln the forests.
People read It, take heed more or less
yet the same carelessness goes on year
after year. Fires break out, the taxpayer's money Is spent in suppressing
these out-breaks, young growth timber
is destroyed. The tax-payer sutlers
in the loss of revenue through government royalties on timber thus destroyed—the general public suffers through
the loss of money put in circulation
by the timber and allied industries.
But this season we give more than
usual warning. The Dominion Government Weather Bureau reports that
winter precipitation was 16 inches less
than average years. This means a
greater fire hazard than we have had
for many a long year — it means
that the situation is serious—that every right thinking citizen must take
heed.
The prevention of forest fires in
British Columbia this season is more
than a Forest Branch problem—more
than a government problem—more
than a question for the timber Industry. It Is a social problem which goes
deep Into the fibres of everyday life—
which affects every man, woman and
child ln B.C.
And because it is a social problem, it
can best be met by the public itself.
During the past few years agencies
have been at work throughout the
Province teaching the fundamentals
of forest protection. The ultimate
success of this laudable undertaking
resta upon individual citizens. It is
up to every Individual to become forest conscious—to think and act in
stamping forest fires out of British Columbia.
Be careful with your camp fires, cigarette buUs, pipe ashes, report Arcs
promptly. Take first suppression measures yourself when help from authorities is not immediately available. Talk
forest protection. If you and every
citizen did this, the skies of British
Columbia would be clear this summer.
Remember this year it IS serious.

woodlands greem.

Firty telephone poles were
climbed by telephone men at

wire up on a pole. As it
swayed In the breeze it came
in contact with three toll
wires, causing noise, Intermittently, on thc Vancouver-

then kept climbing poles until they found it. Once
