It's probably no exaggeration to say that the most delightful
and successful "smoker" ever held in Cumberland was that which
took place on Saturday night last, when the Cumberland branch

a great deal of benefit,/
Mr. W. A. Owen was then cnlled on

heartily aplaudcd.

posited lu bygone ages.
Hindi Yi't to l.rarn Iteininlliig Coal.
Mr. MncKeirzic snid there was still
more to be learned ahout the formation and growth of coal than we yet
know, especially of the colli scums of
the Island. He appealed for tiie cooperation of his hearers iu (lie work
tho geological survey Is doing, saying
thnt It was of the utmost Importance
that his department should get shells
nnd fossils which Ihe workers In tho
mines come across. The minors' cooperation would assist science generally.
Mr. Owen and Mr, Colvllle Graham
delighted the audience with a piano
and violin duet, an encore being insisted upon.

Col. Leckie, chairman of tlie Western Division of tlie Institute, wns
next called upon. He snld It guve him
great pleasure to meet so many old
friends and sec such a large gathering.
During the past year metal mining

speaker, but there was every hope of
an improvement during the coming
year. Col. Leckie spoke of the advantages to" be derived from belonging to
the Institute, members of which would

BASKETBALL DANCE
On Tuesday evening next, night of
tho election, the newly-formed Owls
Basketball Club will hold a big dance
iu (he Ilo-llo Dance Hall. Mimic's
Orchestra lias been engaged for the
occasion, so good music is assured.
On tliis oooasion a change will be
made iu connection with the orchestra,
which will be located in tiie centre of
the hall, giving much better effect.
Dancing will be from (1.30 to 2, and
tiie proceeds will be devoted to the
purchase of equipment for the learn
entered in the new league.
On Saturday afternoon lust Magistrate J. Buird heard tlle charge of perjury preferred agulnsl L. H. Wheeler,
arising out of tlie recent series ol
cases of selling liquor and beer In
contravention of the Moderation Act
It will be remembered that at the
hearing of the case against Mrs. Johnson, Special Constable Mai'B - broki
down in his evidence and admitted
tliat both he and Wheeler, his part
ner In "stool pigeon" work, had lied
in giving evidence.^. This came as a
dramatic climax to a somewhat sensational day, and resulted in the case:.
In which these witnesses had appeared
being withdrawn or dismissed, and
tlle two "specials" dismissed from the
service of the Liquor Control Board.
A charge of perjury was at once
laid against Wheeler, which was adjourned to last Saturday.
Mr. Arthur Leighton of Nanaimo,
prosecuted, and Mr. C. J. Lennox, of
Lennox & Fletcher. Vancouver, appeared on behalf of the accused.
Chief Constable Stevenson of Nanaimo handled the case for the police,
and Miss Florence Callow, also of Nanaimo, acted as court' stenographer.
The only phase of the alleged perjury brought before the court was In
connection with the alleged Immoral
conduct of the accused, who had persistently denied the Imputation when
giving evidence in the previous cases.
Mrs. Hilda Johnson, who says she
keeps a chicken ranch, swore to the
truth of tlie accusation. Three other
witnesses were called to give evidence,
against Wheeler. The whole case was
disgusting, and lusted nearlj all afternoon.
Magistrate Baird bound the accused
over to appear at the next court of
competent jurisdiction, which will be
the spring assizes at Nanaimo. Bail
was fixed at $3000, In two sureties of
$1500 each.
Up to the time of going to press,
Wheeler Is slill lu the provincial jail
in Cumberland, being unable to get
sureties. However, it Is likely his release will soon be arranged for, as he
is said to be the Btar witness In a
divorce case pending ln Vancouver.
He ls taking his forced detention
quite pleasantly, saying lie is quit*?
sure of getting off on the perjury
charge, and claims to have been promised his position on the Liquor Board
again. I

imith on Sunday to play their return
league fixture in the Upper Island

game of this league, but the result of
tbe game will not affect Cumberland's

The Fuel Oil Situation
Mr. antl Mrs. Vol or, it is tip to you to consider very seriously
the situation confronting .Cumberland and other coal mining
centres of Vancouver Island in the present Dominion Election.
Millions of barrels of California fuel oil are entering British
Columbia annually, displacing the use of coal for fuel. The
increased production of coal necessary to replace this imported
foreign fuel would amount to about 4,000 tons daily. Do you
realize what this increased output would mean to you and your
fellow citizens?
Liberals' and Fanners' Policies Would Mean Disaster to Mining.
The Liberal Party platform calls for the reduction of the tariff
on fuel oil, and the Farmers' Party is out for Free Trade, which
would totally abolish any import duty on this commodity.
Consider the disastrous effects this \v-ciild have on the mining
industry of Vancouver Island. The situation is too serious to be
passed over lightly. The only logical course for the inteligent'
voter is to vote for Mr. H. S. Clements, who supports the Meighen
Government in its tariff policy oi giving every possible protection
to the industries of the Dominion.
In the Province of British Columbia
tlie tonnage ol' coal produced for the
year 1D10 waa 8,139.235 tons, this being tlie largest production in the history of .the Province. ***'
Tiie tonnage produced in 11*20 was
2,086,744 tons, or nearly half a million
tons le;,3 than in 1910, though last
year's tonnage was the largest produced since 1910. wilh the single exception of 1912, when it was 3,025,709.
Of the 1920 tonnage, Vancouver Island prodifced 1,098,254 tons*. Of this
amount   1,400,098   tons   was   sold   as
commercial coal, the balance, 298,154 .        —  ,	
Ions being used In the production of I In wages in and around the coal mines
1,000 tuns per day, which would practically double the present output of
commercial coal ou the Island.
There are at present directly or indirectly, some 20,000 .people on Vancouver Island dependent on the coal
industry, hence with the elimination
of California fuel oil, the coal Industry
would support another 20,000 of population.
It would create another Nanaimo,
Ladysmith, South Wellington, Cassidy
aud Cumberland.
Approximately  $8,000,000  was  paid
team at the mines ami loss in wash
ing.
Fuel Oil Displacing Coal.
During 1920 there were 300,121 barrels of California oil per month coming
into the province, wliieh at the present
market price represented $1,000,000 a
month, or $12,000,000 a year going to
upport tlie California oil industry.
300,121 barrels of oil is equivalent to
100,000 tons of coal per month, so that
the elimination of the California fuel
oil iu B. C. would mean that the production of coal would   be   increased
on Vancouver Island during last year.
One million dollars was spent in supplies. 90 per cent, of which was spent
In Canada.
An increased production of 4,000
tons of coal per day on Vancouver
Island would, ln giving steady employment to the present mines, and Increased quantity production from the
present and enlarged operations, so
reduce overhead expenses ln operation that a very substantlakreductlon
in price to the consumer would be possible.
VICTORIA HIGH SCHOOL
WANTS PRINCIPAL WOOD
The Victoria School Trustees made
a temptjng offer to Mr. C. B, Wood, B.
A., principal of the Cumberland High
Scliool, lo teach on the Victoria High
School, offering him choice of subjects

Mr. Wood took the matter up with
the school trustees of this city, who
gave the matter every consideration,
and decided to offer Mr, Wood un Increase lu salary to remain here, and
Mr. Wood has agreed to this, though
it entails a big sacrifice on Ills part.

Increased Tariff on Oil Would Mean Prosperity for the Island.
The elimination of California or imported fuel oil would keep
within British Columbia $12,000,000 now being sent to the United
States' of America, and would add to the present payrolls in the
■ coal mining districts on Vancouver Island, some $5,000,000 per
year; it would save the people of the Province approximately two
million dollars per year on their coal bills, through creating steady
operations and increased production at the mines, and would add
another $1,000,000 spenL in British Columbia for increased supplies required in operation.
Tims a total of $20,000,000 per annum would be added to the
circulation in the Province, Ponder these facts carefully and consider the prosperity that would accrue to the Province from this
one industry alone. This can be accomplished by raising the
import duty on fuel oil coming in from foreign countries.
Thc Liberal Party and Farmers' Party Want to Reduce or Wipe
Out All Tariff on Imported Oils
The Liberal platform adopted at the convention in Winnipeg in
1919 contains a plank which provides for the reduction of the duty
on all oils, including oil for fuel purposes.
The Farmers' Party, represented by Crerar, is out flat-footed
for Free Trade.
The Meighen Government is out on an absolute platform of protect ion for the industries of the country. It Is therefore absolutely
necessary for every man and woman who is dependent on the
coal mining industry in Cumberland to get out on Tuesday next
and vote for the candidate of the Meighen Government, Mr. 11. S.
Clements.

I guess you are all thinking about the same thing—
what kind of a present you can give each other for
Christinas. Why not solve the problem by making
one gift for the whole family? Think of the pleasure
a musical instrument such as a piano or phonograph
would give you, not only at Christmas but all the year
round—Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. It would
be a present that the whole family would enjoy.
You may say, "Oh, there is lots of time!" But there
is where you make the mistake. Every year there is a
rush the last few days before Christmas—so in order
to accommodate our customers we are making special
weekly terms and reserving any particular instrument
for Christmas delivery. You pay so much per week
until Christmas and then arrange terms for the
balance.

Between two women of equal beauty
always pick the one who closes her

so likely to think you want to marry
her.
The proof that men do not understand women is tliat they love them.
They proof that women do understand
men is that they marry them.
The llrsl kiss is always stolen by the
man, and tlie last is always begged by
the woman.
The length of a woman's, kiss nearly
always depends upon the breadth ot
her Imagination.
To remain a woman's Ideal a man
must die a bachelor.
A woman's idea of hell—"Nobody
loves me and my clothes don't lit."
Men frequently marry to keep other
men from getting the woman they desire.   They are not always successful.
Self-respect means n comfortable
sense that you have not been found
out.
A woman's head Is not always
turned by flattery; sometimes It's
peroxide.
One beauty of being single is that
it's a dreadfully thrilling experience
until one's wife finds it out.
It must be dreadful to meet at dinner the man who ran away with one's
wife. It places one under such an obligation.      -
To make marriage perfect, the husband should be deaf and the wife
blind.

Michigan, but desired to settle in
Canada. They ask official assurance
of freedom from molestation and promise to abide by all laws. They will
have their own school. The community own wealth In unity, all being
divided into equal parts. They nre

What Is To Be Canada's Destiny?
Shall it be that through the destruction of the Tariff as proposed by both Crerar and
King', the development of Canada is to come under the domination of the United
States, to be followed by gradual financial domination and as a consequence, political
domination?
OR-
Is Canada's destiny to be that of a great free nation within the British Empire group
of Nations, developing her boundless resources of mine, river, water power, forest,
and cultivating her millions upon millions of acres of arable land? Is her development to surpass that of any other nation?
Shall her manufacturing industries develop her minerals and raw materials into implements and goods for thc benefit and comfort of her people and for foreign trade?
Shall she become a self-contained nation within the Empire, her great railways
interchanging, the products of factory and farm among her own people, and her
ships sailing every sea?
Shall she maintain her integrity within the Empire and protect her farms and
factories against unfair competition from foreign countries?
IF THIS IS TO BE CANADA'S DESTINY THEN CANADA
NEEDS MEIGHEN.
On December 6th, Canada should once again protect her farms, her factories and her workmen
against the unsound theory of Free Trade, and should hold fast to her reasonable Protective Tariff,
her national entity and her British connection.
On December 6th Canada should declare with no uncertain voice that she will not tolerate the false
trade theories of visionaries and group leaders which tend toward her economic destruction, toward
the separation of her people and the weakening of the ties that bind Canada to the British Empire.
On December 6th Canada should demonstrate unmistakably to the outside world her fixed determination to keep Canada for the Canadians.
On December 6th Canada's destiny is at stake.

Published every Saturday morning at Cumberland, B. C.

BEN H. GOWEN Editor.
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1921.
SIXTY YEARS AGO
The following Is an extract from an article which
appeared in the "Canadian Manufacturer and Industrial
World," in its Issue published in Toronto on November 111,
1883: '
"In 1857, ns many still with us wlll vividly remember,
we had a time of depression in Canada, This bud time bail
Commenced the year before, and was felt in both Europi
am! America, ln the United States, tlie principal catliei
oi Ibe depression were held to have been land speculation
and railway building carried to excess. And on this side
ot tbe bonier it could be largely accounted for by tlie-stop
page of cupilal expenditure on Hie Oianil Trunk ami Groin
Western Hallways, after the main lines of these important
works had been finished.
"There was, however, anotbeV Important cause in operation. During the Crimean War wheat touched the extraordinary llgures of from $2 to $2.25 to Canadian farmers,
who were flush witli money, and everybody appeared to act
as If this was always going to last. But Iho war came to
a close ln September, 185a, and a tumble in wheat quickly
followed. During 1S50, things grew rapidly worse, and In
1857 the state of general depression had become critical.
At this time, be it remembered, the old Reciprocity Treaty
wus in force, and If having the markets of both England
and the United States open to our produce could have
made out farmers prosperous, then prosperous they cer
talnly should have been. But tlie sale of farm produce
abroad did not suffice for this, and instead of prosperity
we had adversity."
Those who argue tliat reciprocity or Free Trade witli the
United States or lower tariff or Free Trade generally,
Would help the farmers or any one else In this country,
will have to explain why such measures would lie effective
Bow when they failed so completely sixty years ago.
CANADA SECOND IN WHEAT PRODUCTION
Canada is now tlic second wiieat producing country in
Hie world according to 1921 statistics. We produce about
alf as much wheat as the United Stales, but they, it must
lie remembered, have ten inhabitants to our ono. Russia,
at one time an important factor in tliis fundamental industry, has apparently fallen by [lie wayside, for she does nol
appear in tlie 1921 list. The C. N. It. has carried this sea.-
son, September 1 to .November 12, 41,220 cars or approximately nine and three-quarter million bushels. For the
similar period in 1920, the number of cars handled was
21,858.
S95 PER CAPITA AGAINST $5
Last year the I'nited States bought from Canada goods
worth '(642,000,000.
And Canada bought from the United States goods worth
$850,000,0110.
The United States has about 108,000,000 people and
Canada bus about 9,000,000.
Thus, lust year, each Inhabitant of tlie United States
boiiglii live dollars worth of Canadian products, while
each Canadian bought ninety-live dollars worth of raited
States products,
This is the situation with tlie present Canadian tariff.
What would It lie If tliat tariff is abolished or reduced?
Just think a little. $95 worth of American goods bought
by every Canadian in lbc course of one year. For n family
of live tills amounts to $475, and for every family in tlic
whole Diminion. No wonder there is so much unemployment and consequent suffering In the Dominion. Wo have
mrselves to blame.
Electors of the Albernl-Comox constituency cannot do
other than vote for H. S. Clements, who is strongly opposed
;o any reduction In the present tariff.
A GREAT LEADER
As the election campaign proceeds it becomes clearer
and clearer to the majority of the Canadian people that
there is but one leader deserving of their confidence. Mr
Meighen stands head and shoulders above his rivals. Their
Btnnllness, their desperate straining after the prize of
ofllce, their pitiful dodges are bringing them more and more
Into contempt. Mr. Melghen's speeches are the deliver
ances of a statesman who puts tbe welfare of bis country
above every other consideration, who is no flatterer or
deceiver of the people, no exploiter of any class, and who
stands up for the snme principles In one part of Canada
as another. His professions accord with his performances.
He Is a Protectionist, and says so. Tlie voters arc coming
more and more to one mind on this point, that the Meighen
Government is the refuge of tlie country from bare-brained
experimenters and party leaders who are utterly demoralized by their ambition for power.
Most people will agree with President Harding that
war between tlie United States and England is unthinkable, and eventually most people will agree tliat war between any two nations is unthinkable.—St. Louis Post-
Dispatch.
One ratiier good piece of news in the disarmament tidings was tlie name of Mr. Wm. Jennings Bryan among
those present. Report says he is coming to visit British
Columbia to exorcise Rum and Tobacco. He'd better hurry
up before tbe solons in Victoria settle tiie point of beer
by the glajs.
The country editors of B. C. are coming into tlic limelight of appreciated attention lately. For the second time
within a month the Vancouver Province lias devoted two-
.-oluinn space in a special, descriptive article telling of
the worthy work of the country newspapers of B. C.
Asiatic birthrate in B. C. exceeds white birthrate by
sixty per cent, in past four months, according to vital
statistics.
An inky war is being waged In tbe Vancouver dailies'
correspondents' columns betwetn a pastor and his followers on one side, and adherents of Mayor Gale aligned
on tlle other side. Time to call a truce in time to put the
finishing touches to tlie Sunday sermon and the concluding campaign oratory.
SMOKER WAS MOST
DELIGHTFUL EVER
HELD IN CUMBERLAND
(Continued from Page One)
Mining Division, Vancouver Board of
Trade, was the next speaker called on.
He amused his hearers by saying be
would much rather sing a song than
make a speech.
Mr. Thomson said he had been In
the province about 34 yearn and had
had a good deal to do with mining on
Vancouver Island, when he acted in
an advisory capacity to Mr. McOrath,
the Dominion Fuel Controller.
The speaker said he was very glad
to note the pleasant relations exlstipg
between the miners nnd operators of
the Island. He said so long ns they
work along these lines, in a get-
togetber spirit, and discuss the best
wayB of conducting tlie coal mines, the
miners and operators have a big advantage. The more tlie miners knew
about the natural depositions of the
coal, the better they will he able to
perform their work for themselves as
well as for the operators. It was very
essential for the best Interests of this
great lndusctry that capital and labor
work together. Mr. Thomson recommended his hearers to .Mr. MacKenzie
for any information they needed ln
regard to tho geology of coal, which
he knew was always given with
pleasure.
Incidentally, Mr. Thomson said no
better body of men ever stepped in
boot leather than miners. Ills allusions to tlie mines and miners of Northumberland and Durham were much
appreciated .many In the hall being
Trom those localities.
At tho conclusion ot Mr. Thomson's
remarks, Messrs. Owen and Graham
rendered another piano and violin
duct in very pleasing manner.
Colli Is King!
Professor Turnbull, of the University of B. C, said more men train In
coal mining were needed in the province. Ho looked forward to the time
when the University would have a
coal specialist on its staff, to teach
practical coal mining. Prof. Turnbull
said the faculty strives to give tlie
best education possible under tlie prevailing .conditions.
Tho speaker claimed tliat coal Is
Icing of all industries; when gold is
dead, coal will still be king!
In response to Mr. Grnham's remark
thai tbey would like representatives
from the University to visit Cumberland sometimes and give addresses,
Prof. Turnbull said the University
had a committee for that very pu I'll* thc institute wished to have
,3 from ii: department, thoy
be very pleased to do their best
to meet the demand.
Mr. A. Auchlnvole was called on lor
pose
leetu
a song, and responded with "Thora,"
which he sang very effectively.
Dean Brock Wants Host Education for
Children.
Dean Brock, of the Faculty of Applied Science, cxpresed his pleasure at
being present. He said tlie University
was recognized everywhere as one of
the necessary institutions not only for
training thc mind and spirit, but also
In training men for the Industrial
world. Everyone was anxious that
ills child should receive the best possible training for future life. Those
that have the type of mind should
should have the opportunity of getting
a University training. Tbls should not
be confined to the well-to-do child but
every child who had the necessary
ability should have the means of getting the best possible education (applause).
Dean Brock said tlie main thing was
to apply science to the industries.
The whole aim of science was to eliminate speculation or theory and show
the best ways of applying science to
industrial activity.
Willie only a limited number could
attend universities, yet the knowledge
gained was not limited to those who
attended, but was dispersed throughout the province by the students.
The University also has a staff to
send out to give extension lectures
wherever needed.
The speaker said be did not know
of pay country which from Its physical
nature needed the highest technical
training as the province of Britisli
Columbia.
He suld the University wanted to be
iu touch with the Industries—they
wanted to be told of the problems,
mil would try and help.
Mr. Williams sang very pleasingly
"I'm Off to Philadelphia in the Morn-
lug," and had to respond to a well-
merited encore.
Prof. Schofield Paid Big Compliment
to Mr. (.rnliaiii.
Prof. Schofield gave a very Interesting address, laying particular emphasis on the work Mr. Graham is doing for mining and geology generally.
The speaker said that at the meeting
of the Institute of Mining and Metallurgy in Vancouver last year, the best
speech was that given by Mr. Thomas
Graham. He said they knew a little
about conditions on Vancouver Island,
but not very much until they had
heard Mr. Graham's remarkable address. His speech was one that was
clear and incisive, and covered a great
deal of ground, said tlie professor.
Business men discussed that paper after the meeting was over—in fact it
was tlie most discussed paper of tlie
whole proceedings.
Prof. Schofield said geology dealt to
a large extent witli both metal and
coal, and was able to Indicate where
lliese minerals might lie found. He
said there ls now u coal field being
developed in Kent, known as thc garden of England. Geologists had predicted that coal would be found at
great depths, and their predictions had
proved correct.
Dean Brock "Shir" of Ihe Evening.
llean Brock brought down tlie house
with his rendering of tlie song,
"Drill, Ye Tarriers, Drill!" This was
the. most joyous event of tlic whole
evening, and of course the dean was
loudly encored. He sat down for a
few minutes to think over what he
would give as an encore, but surprised Ills hearers when he got up
and in a regretful tone of voice said
it was tbe first time he had ever been
encored! Apparently be was totally
unprepared for such an event. Tills
remark drew a big laugh.
Johnny Walker, who was introduced
as "the solid and not the liquid kind,"
and who was one of tlie students making tlie visit in company witli tlie professors, addressed a few words of appreciation. He said a trip sucli as
that helped the students a great ileal,
as it was the only way they could get
practical experience. He asked the
men and operators to help tiie students when they came over to gain practical experience during their summer
holidays. Many of them were paying
their own way through tho University,
ihe yearly cost of which, to some of
them, Including living expenses, only
amounted to $500 or $000, showing Ihe
university was by no means only available to children of tlie well-to-do.
Mr. Walker's remarks were followed
ihe the students giving the "College
Yell," which nearly raised tlie roof.
Mr. Jackson entertained tlie gathering with a display of juggling, lightning arithmetic, dancing and one-man
wrestling that was splendid.
Professor Freeman gave a very interesting talk on "Chemistry and Its
Relation to Coal Mining," and Prof.
Williams talked on the animal and
bird life In coal. Both nddrcses were
listened to with keen Interest.
Mr. Sam Jones sang "Long Live the
King" in fine voice, responding to a
hearty encore with "Garden of My'
Heart."
Mr. Hughie Bates caused much merriment with his monologue, dance and
song.
Mr. Owen acted as accompanist
during the evening.
Mr. Charles Graham said he was
very pleased to see such a very good
meeting, and from tbe great success be
felt sure they would have more in the
near future. He briefly outlined the
mines of the Comox Collieries and the
difficulties encountered in extracting
tlie coal from them.
He snid arrangements had been made
for showing tlie visitors over tiie works
and condoling them down No. 5 Mine
the following morning, after which
they could visit the hydro-electric
plant at Puntledge before proceeding
to the Riverside Hotel at Courtenay for
lunch.

A Momentous Election
There have been many momentous
elections in Canada, but we venture to
say none of them was as important
or vital to the nation as the one to be
held on Tuesday next. Falling as it
does in the midst of the aftermath of
war and at a time fairly charged with
risk and danger, it is in reality tlle
greatest test we have had of Canadian
character and solidarity. This is a
time of most acute crisis, and. according as Ihe people may decide, will
largely depend whether we are to go
forward or stay in our tracks; whether or not we arc to have economic
stability, which can only lie ensured
by polliieal stability; whether, as a
nation, we will make a strong, fresh
start or muddle along In political
ciiaos, group striving against group
anil class against class,
Tin- whole iinaucial, Industrial unit
commercial structure of tiie country,
laboriously built up through forty
years of effort, Is seriously Imperilled
by Hie Progressive Funnel' and Liberal platforms alld by the trade exclusion policy of tlic United Stntos. If.
iu tlic face of an almost insupportable
American tariff, we yield submissively
to the appeals of those who are
pledged to break down altogether
large sections (wliieh mean ultimately
all) of our own very moderate tariff,
it will nol be a long, but a very short,
time till we become so dependent upon
American markets or rather channels
of trade for the distribution of our
goods to Hie world,—tliat Is to say, so
dependent on American fiscal policy
tliat we will become only nominally
but not actually independent of our
powerful and aggressive neighbor.
This danger every statesman that
Canada has produced, whatever may
have been his early opinions, has
grown to realize, to fully understand
and lo frankly admit. A tremendous
effort is under way which, If it succeeds will, without any question at
all, place our commercial Integrity,
and ultimately our nationality in
jcopnrdy. The sooner we all realize
tills tlie better for us. Courage, foresight, broad national vision, determined patriotic action and cooperation
of all classes are necessary lo save
us from tendencies nnd consequences
Hint no Canadian worthy of the name
cares to contemplate.
World ('inidiliiiiis.
Examine the world's conditions, and
what, do you lind? All the peoples
are still reeling from the shock and
awful tragedy of the war and are
nervously groping for light. Trading
conditions were never so disturbed;
Indeed the future course'of trade is
quite unpredictable. The currencies
of nearly all of ihe countries are depreciated, entailing grave perplexities
and embarrassment to trade and commerce. Tlie credit system of tho
world around which all productive activity revolves is seriously endangered. Most of the countries of Europe
and the peoples thereof arc in dire
Iinaucial straits. Great Britain, tlic
world's greatest trading nation, linds
many, very many of her leading industries yielding to overwhelming competition by industries in other countries,
and under the burden of a tremendous
war taxation, is seeking hy one protective device after another, to get iu
n stronger position. Millions of her
peoplo are unemployed and this unemployment she is struggling to reduce by every resource at her com-
ninnd. The United Stales, though
glutted with gold, and seemingly iu a
position to require protective measures
less than any oilier country in tbe
world today because she is now a
great creditor nation, whose debts
from other peoples can- only be paid
in servcio and goods, is nevertheless
pressing higher and more Insistently
its historic protective policy. They
are doing Mils largely at the demand
of agriculture but as well In the belief
that the live minimis, of her people out
of work will be helped buck to employment,
Gorman workmen—highly skilled
artisans—are working like demons for
compnratlceviy low wages; soon—very
soon, Germany wlll become,a formidable competitor In the world's markets. Tlie eniberB ot the great conflagration In Europe still smoulder.
Grave unemployment exists iu almost
every country. Tlic wheels of progress have not yet slarted (o move
properly. The process of readjusting
nnd restoration to pre-war conditions
nnd prices Is slow and painful. Labor,
not unnaturally, does not take kindly
to any reduction in war time wages,
and those engaged In industry und
finance are fearful of committing themselves to new enterprises.
Conditions in Cniiuilii.
Here In Canada, we. of course, are
affected by these world conditions
and seriously so. We are better oil*
than most If not all of tho other countries and vastly better than the great

majority, but while that is something
to be thankful for, It is not satisfying.
Evidences of stagnation, instability
and lack of confidence are readily discernible. There is much unemployment. It cannot be denied that over
100,000 men are out of work today
with winter right on top of us.,There
is not the least doubt in tlie world
thai the unemployment that exists today IS due to the uncertainty caused
by prolonged and now most persistent
attacks on our tariff policy, and while
this uncertainty continues, unemployment will continue, if not increase, and
conditions can only be made right by
a declaration from the Canadian people that a protective policy is not only
the right policy for Canada but is
leeurc aud may be relied upon for at
least some years to come. Our exjibrt
trade with Europe is most dillleiilt because of depreciated currencies und
tlle inability of many peoples to lind
the wherewithal or credit to buy.
In (lie electidn wliieh takes place ou
1 tiesihi' class consciousness will be
iu evidence, ami very dangerously in
evidence, It is not bard to lind examples of nations that huve been virtually destroyed by class movements.
Several countries of the world today
.ire menaced by this epidemic, and
Canada is one of these countries. Tlie
recent elections In Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia
give a very clear indication of the con-
aised state ot public opinion when
iliese elections were held. There Is a
tremendous difference between Federal
administration and Provincial administration, and surly the Canadian people would never desire tbat the Parliament of Canada should find itself
without anything iu the way of a harmonious majority and consequently
without anything in the way of a
itrong effective Government but with
i collection of log-rolling groups bar-
rallllng with each other, and with the
unavoidable confusion and sterility
chat results, it would take very little
experience of ibis kind to make us
ess proud of Canada than we are today.
Shuttered Liberal Parly.
The Liberal Party shattered by its
war attitude, and Its lack of constructive ideas, and bereft of its chief
souroe of voting strength, is hopelessly
drifting. It stands pledged in most
solemn language to a platform only
two years old, a platform that over
half of it arc afraid to stand on now
and which Is only used in districts
where it thinks it popular. Those
constituencies which it knows it cannot win on its tariff policy as declared in its convention. It hopes to
win by promises to abandon that
policy; in a word, If It cannot succeed
:iy a platform, It hopes to succeed by
duplicity. .
What the Prime Minister Said.
The Prime Minister iu one of his
powerful speeches, recently said:
"II is work, nil classes of work, we'
want. Work brings people, people
iiring work, both bring wages and happiness, and all four make the country.
One thing certain is this—our industries must stay here—they must expand—the unemployed must come
nuck, the power must be turned on—
and you know just as well as 1 that
tliis won't be done by washing out the
tariff. The working man knows, and
everybody knows who wants to think
it out, that you can't keep industries
and you can't get industries unless
you establish conditions that give
them a chance to get on against the
Industries of other countries with
which they compete. Any other policy
inly makes the working man an exile
from Cuuadu at the sacrifice of his
■livings aiid his home.
"We have turned sometimes iu the
past, hut never far in the direction
iiese man are trying to drive us toby, Every time we started down that
oad we lost and had to march up
.gain.
"There Is one greal truth Inherent

ergot Hull truth we ciuiiiiieine tu lose
ihe luiltli*. The mure the drift continues the more powerful the depeu-
iltnico I'i'i'oiiies.
"My appenl Is not specially for one
-lass or to another class; my appeal
la to the whole people; to every man
ind every woman who wants to do
right by this country, who wants to
preserve and to expand all our Held
of enterprise so Iha^ we will have here
■ it home sphere and scope for the
!alents of our children and the ambi-
iuiia ot our youth, spheres of opportunity open to all no matter to what
station born.
"My appeal Is to everyone who
knows tho inclining of Canada, who
breathes the spirit of our fahers who
founded this British dominion, who
minds tlie name of Canadian with
pride and hope.
"Come let us get together and engage the bottle and show once more
that Canada Is resolved on her course;
tlnit she will not he turned or bent or
daunted; that she Is steadfast, strong
and true."
"THE KID"
Charlie Chaplin's Delightful Entertainment, "The Kid," at
Ilo-llo Theatre Tonight
Charlie Chaplin has hit the high
spot in delightful entertainment in his
lirst attempt at a feature length pic-
lure, "Tlie Kid," which is said hy many
to be the most enjoyable Him 'ever
seen. In the first place it simply
bubbles over with laughter and the
situations are so human tliat you do
not feel foolish because you are
laughing. Again, ii is long enough so
that it provides a whole evening's entertainment in itself.
Had seme one told us before we
saw "Tlie Kid" that we could be convinced thut the character which Chaplin bus always represented on the
screen could be presented in such a
way that we could visualize him as a
living, breathing mortal, we would
have been Inclined to doubt. But several limes during tlie course of "The
Kid" this comedian made us swallow
a lump In our throats and wipe real
tears of sympathy from our eyes by
'lie pathos of his acting. Then again
tears were brought to our eyes by the
ihrieks of laughter from the antics of
tiie same actor.
As a comedy the production is a
winner; as a dramatic production it
tanks high; but the strongest appeal
this Fli-Bt National six reels of joy
brings, Is the realization that Charlie
C'h'aplln is not a clown but one of the
most consummate actors on the screen
today.
"The Kid" Is being shown at the
llo-Ilo Theatre Friday and Saturday.
An extra attraction Is a 2-reel comedy,
"Kiss Me Caroline."
Klrst Shew Begins ut (I and Second at
7.45 on Saturday.
(Owing to th* theatre being engaged
or a political meeting at 9.15 p.m.,
Saturday, the first show will commence at 0 o'clock, and the second

SUNDAY BAND CONCERT
WAS VERY ENJOYABLE
The City Band's flrat concert, which
look place in tlie Ilo-llo on Sunday
night last, waa very successful, a
large audience being present. All
numbers on the programme were rendered in an efficient and excellent
manner, and all the artists taking
part were encored. The selections of
the band were all well rendered and
were much appreciated by the audience.
We regret to again have to call attention to the some members of the
audience who are inclined to be
noisy und rowdy, which greatly annoys the patrons and singers. Those
gulity of this reprehensible practice
should be conducted from the hall.
The boys' and young men who are responsible are advised to use a little
better taste in future. We are udvised
hat the Hand executive is taking steps
to elcminate this annoyance in the
future. No boys will be allowed in
the hall unless accompanied by par-
cuts or guardians, and an officer of
1 lie law will also he pi*#sent to take
iction, if necessary. Such conduct is
a bieach of the peace and wlll be
overely dealt with.

vlll he held on December 11, with an
tntire change of programme, par-
iculars of which will be announced

HOW DO YOU ANSWER
YOUR TELEPHONE?
The B. C. Klectric Railway Company
in Vancouver has been conducting a
vigorous campaign agninst the use of
the world "Hello!" as answer to a tele-
phono call. It may be noted that an
exclamation note Is used after the
word, and it is generally in that tone
of voice that the person answering
Ihe call says "Hello!" If it were uttered as if a question mark were afler
tlie word, its brusqueness might be
softened a little; but, anyway, "Hello"
is obsolete in correct telephone prac-
time and should not be used in business rouses. From time to time this
company has suggested to the public
the proper answer lo a telephone call.
namely, tbe announcement of the firm
and department, and while it has not
been intimated to us that those in
glass houses should not throw stones,
yet there are instances where those in
our own offices still answer with
■•Hello!" In such cases they have to
be asked who is speaking.
The B. C. Electric statistician reports in Tho Employees' Magazine
that as n result of the campaign "the
word is gradually being brought to it.-;
knees. Already the number of Helios!
you get over the JJ. C. Electric telephones bas been dropped to li3 per

was, as they put it. '(Jetting their
goat.' and tbey would have welcomed
as a long-lost brother an occasional
'Are you there?' or 'Well?'
"All those who are willing to sign
the pledge and abolish tlie word when
answering their phone will be welcomed with open arms aud without
charge. We want converts to modern
methods."-   Telephone Talk.

Tho theatre head applied to the city
for permission to run a banner across
the street, bearing thq legend: "Jack
Dempsey—Welcome!" but the aldermen could not sec it that way. Members ot the veterans' societies nre

and holding services in their up-town
place of worship. Tbey say their
number of converts grows, with no
instances of backsliding. Witb Increased numbers, their present hall
will be changed into a good-sized
church. Evangelists are going all over
the province on a mission of proselytizing. The Mormons no longer advocate polygamy, although they still
believe in its principles, hut they saj
they would obey the law. The Mormons make no collections and all expenses are borne by the visiting missionaries and by the mother church

DEFACES WINDOWS
WITH DIAMOND RING
Complaints are reaching the Vancouver police from merchants who
.say an unknown vandal has been defacing costly plate glass windows with
diamond ring. A number of store
windows are gashed and slashed with
lisiiguring signs and offensive pictures. The work has apparently been
done at night. One window has been
disfigured so badly with vile pictures
that the owner has replaced it.
The police are inclined to believe it
is the work ot the same man who has
been defacing walls and signs with
obscene sketches.
B. C. HAS 600 CLUBS, SAYS
REPORT; BEER IN MOST
VICTORIA—There are about (100
luba in - D. C., according to reports
in possession ot* provincial officials.
Some are legally incorporated and
others, it is said, have not bothered
about that little formality. Beer aud
>ther tonics, it is suggested, are purveyed at many of these institutions.
Fanciful  Names.
The same report stales that fanciful
names describe some of the haunts.
Here are some of the names quoted:
Butterfly Club, Trilby Club (colored)
Sunflower Club (also colored), Heart
and Hand (matrimonial), The Wink
jrs' Club aud others of the same or-
lor.
While many of thc veteran organizations are composed of real ex-service
soldiers and sailors, and exclude all
rdhers, there are others quasi-veteran
clubs (hat have the slimmest pretentions to martial affiliations, One of
these clubs, states the report, modestly
■ alls itself The Heroes of Europe; an
other Is the Warriors of tbe War.
These facts developed during investigation of conditions centreing around

AHMISHAW SPEAKS FRIDAY
Farmer-Labor Candidate Armishaw
of Sayward will bold a meeting tonight
(Friday) at 7.30 in tiie Miners' Hall.
Mr. Armishaw has asked us to publish the following, which speaks for
itself:
"ln the report of my meeting at
Courtenay held on November 30, the
Comox Argus*** apparently decides to
ignore my stand as regards lo labor,
and fails to mention that I am running on the Labor platform as adopted
by the uominion Trades and Laboi
Congress, and that I have signed
papers as to my stand on Labor. I
think that tbe Argus has made a fatal
mistake In this respect, as the editoi
should know tbat the hundreds who
attended my meeting know what 1
said, ami I therefore leave it in tbe
hands of tlie people. I shall have
more to say on this at my meeting 1
am holding tonight  (Friday).
"J. E. ARMISHAW,
"Farmer-Labor Candidate."
"THE MONKEY'S PAW"
The Courtenay Dramatic Club visited Cumberland Thursday night and
staged their much-talked of play,
"The Monkey's Paw," also a few
vaudeville turns. Tbo first portion of
the programme was devoted to vocal
selections, tbe second half being devoted solely to tbe play.
The attendance was rather disappointing, as the local G. W. V. A., under whose auspices tlie show was
staged, had gone to a lot of expense
and trouble in advertising, etc.
The play was followed by a dance
in tlie Ilo-Ilu Hall, at which a good
number attended. Dancing was kept
up until about 2.30.
We understand tliat the proceeds,
after all expenses are paid, are to lie
divided equally between tlie Courtenay
Dramatic Club and tbo local (!. VV. V
A., who intend in the very near future
to make some necessary alterations iu
the Memorial Hull.
G. VV. V. A. NOTES
Wo are asked to draw tlie attention
of ex-servicemen, women and dependents lo the "Clean Sweep Campaign"
which has been inaugurated by Mie
Q. W. V. A. to secure a speedy adjust
ment of all outstanding legitimate
lainis.
Although three years have passed
since tho last shot was lired in tbe
Great War, many legitimate claims
for adjustment of army pay and allowances, war service gratuity, working pay, pensions, D.S.C.R. pay and
allowances, hospital treatment, vocational training, insurance, land settlement, etc., have not been brought forward owing to tlie lack of knowledge
of legislation under which such claims
could be recognized, or through lack
of proper facilities to present the requisite evidence in support of claims
The G. W. V. A. has got a special
stall at Dominion Headquarters tt
handle the work of cleaning up as fai
as possible all outstanding claims.
The necessity of tiie above campaign
may be realized better when It li
known that, the Department of Militia
and Defence alone holds some $1150.
000 of unclaimed war service gratuity
assigned pay, separation allowance
etc.
Unclaimed amounts to a small ex
tent are In tlie hands of other government departments, which havehad
to -lo with the affairs of ex-servtci
men, women and dependents,
If you have a claim, present it now:
get n form from the local G. Vi. V. A
secretary.
Tho usual weekly meeting will be
held on Tuesday.
