The Court of Revision met Thursday
evening in the Council Chamber to
consider the assessment roll for 1923.
His Worship Mayor Parnham was
elected chairman and City Clerk A.
J. Fouracre, clerk of the court. Alder
men Maxwell, Ledingham, Partridge
and Potter were also present.

Respectfully submitted,
A. MacKINNON.    Secretary.
On motion of Alderman Maxwell the
estimates were adopted without any
His Worship Mayor Parnham occupied the chair with Aldermen Maxwell, Ledingham, Potter and Partridge
present, Aid. Dallos being on the sick
list and Aid. Mumford sent an excuse
saying he was unable to attend.
A communication from Robert
Balrd, Inspector of Municipalities, was
laid over for future consideration
with a full board present. The letter
dealt with school and separate accounts. Mr. Baird states that it would
be wise to carry all monies raised for
school purposes In a separate account.
He goes on to say that there may be
some doubt as to the meaning of the
words In the statute but even If there
were no mention of It lu the statute
he says the Council would be required
to carry all monies which they receive
either from the Government by way of
school grants or from the ratepayers
as school taxes in a separate account.
These monies do not belong to the
general funds of the municipality and
should not be taken over by the general funds; they are really trust
money once they are received.
He further stated that he waB quite
aware that in most cases a general
account can be carried in the bank
embodying various Items of trust accounts without causing any trouble,
but It Is always safer to carry the
trust funds by themselves and that ls
the policy that should be carried out.

Crowd at Athletic Club Last
Saturday Night.
Professor John Riddlngton, of the
faculty of the University of B. C, addressed a well attended meeting in
the lecture room of the Cumberland
Literary and Athletic Club last Saturday. The subject of his lecture was
"Poetry of the War." This lecture

auspices of the University of B. C,
and are being arranged for by the
Athletic Club here.
Introduced By Thos. Graham.
Mr. Thomas Graham, Honorary
President of the Athletic Club, did the
honor of Introducing the speaker ot
the evening.'
While many ot the audience were
not familiar with the subject ln hand
yet they could not fair to appreciate
the speaker's eloquence. His quiet
method of delivery, coupled with hie
excellent choice of language held hit
audience vitally Interested for over an
hour and a half.
German poets made the largest contribution, and the reference to the
"Hymn of Hate" was parltcularly interesting.
The different spirit of the English
poets was shown in the "Chant of England which expressed the most beautiful sentiments. Tommy Atkins took
the poem In the spirit of a joke and
replied with a ditty of the same nature.
English poets made many efforts in
rhyme, but there were few that really
possessed of the quality that would
tend to make them immortal.
Belgium's Contribution.
France made some fine contributions during the earlier part of the
war which, however, were not continued as they might have been.
Belgium made some great efforts in
the literary world ln war poetry. Passages from several were quoted, Including "The Blind Man and His Son,"
which was both dramatic and pathetic
Canada Praised.
Tbe professor stated that the finest
poem of the war was produced in Canada, which statement was greeted with
hearty applause. Dr. John McRae's
well known "Flander's Fields," he
considered a masterpiece. The address was closed by the showing of
pictures of a number of the poets.

Explosion At No. 4
Mine Causes Great
Alarm To Residents
Fourteen White and Nineteen Oriental Miners Meet Death in
Disaster at No. 4 Mine—Eight Injured Are in the Hospital
and it is Expected a Majority of Them Will Recover.—Heroic
Work of Rescue Parties Who Despite Terrible Conditions
Labored All Night Extricating Dead and Living.
On Thursday evening No. 4 Comox Mine of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Limited, was the scene of a serious and fatal
explosion of gas. Two hundred and forty-four employees entered
the mine and went on shift at 3 o'clock in the afternoon as usual.
Between 7:30 and 8 o'clock in the evening a hurried call was sent
out from the mine that an explosion had taken place in the
Number Two East Level, Number One Slope and a distance underground of about two miles from the surface.
A long distance message was sent to Mr. Thomas Grahaln,
General Superintendent of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir)
Limited, who happened to be visiting the Extension Mine, notifying him of the condition of No. 4 Mine. Mr. Graham arrived in
short time and proceeded down the mine.
Mr. Charles Graham, District Superintendent, and other
officials of the Company were at No. 4. Immediately doctors,
nurses and rescue parties were formed and left for the scene of
the disaster, taking with them such supplies as it were thought
Small groups of men and women were gathered on the main
street of Cumberland discussing the situation and anxious to know
the extent of the disaster, in a possible attempt of finding out the
names of those who were working in that particular section or
the mine.
By the time the officials and rescue parties had arrived at
the bottom of No. 1 Slope it was found that the explosion had
3pent itself and went out, doing considerable damage in that particular level.
Rescue parties then commenced to extricate the injured and
dead from the ruins though frequently having to battle with gas,
and many heroic acts occurred in the stress of the moment.
Every modern invention for the safety of the employees have
been installed by the present managment who always took a keen
interest in mine rescue and first aid work, as well as extra safety
precautions while the men were at work, and the cause of this
unfortunate disaster is unknown at the present time.
T. R. Jackson, Inspector of Mines for this portion of the province, arrived at midnight on Thursday.
James Dixon, Acting Chief Irwpeetor of Mines, and George
Wilkinson, Special Inspector, left Victoria at midnight on Thursday and arrived here at 8 o'clock on Friday morning. They will
.mmediately commence an investigation to determine the cause
of the disaster.
The Injured.
The injured, who are resting as well as may be expected at
the Cumberland General Hospital are all expected to recover. The
njured are: John Webber, J. R. Gibbs, Robert Walker, Robert
Srown, Jung Leun, Jung Kuck Chow, Wong Foon Chew, Jung

Owing to last night's deplorable accident, the following events have been
postponed until further notice:
The Anglican Church Social and
Dance, which was to have been held

Last Saturday's Affair Very Successful From Every Point of
The St. John's Ambulance Association held a whlst drive and dance In
the O. W. V. A. Hall last Saturday,
there being over 21 tables occupied.
The ladies' first prize was secured by
Miss Bird and the consolation was
awarded Mrs. D. Marsh. The gentlemen's first prize was secured by Mr.
P. McNIven and Mrs. J. D. Davis, playing a gentleman's hand, carried off
the booby.
Owing to an unavoidable error the
price of admission to this affair was
published as 25 cents when It should
have been 50 cents.
These social events are not conducted by the Association with the Idea of
making money. It is hoped in this
way to bring those who are interested
in the work more closely together
and by setting a nominal charge of
admission, expenses can be cleared.
The Austin dance orchestra, now
touring for the second time, will give
a dance in the Ilo-llo Hall, Cumberland on Wednesday evening, February

Proposed Changes
To Fire Hall
Sent To Council
A joint meeting of the Fire Brigade
and Fire Wardens was held ln the
Council Chambers on Tuesday evening. Aldermen Partridge and Ledingham represented the Council and
eighteen members of the Cumberland
Fire Brigade wero present to discuss
the question of quarters for a resident fireman.
It was decided to recommend to the
Council to build an addition containing four rooms at the rear end of the
Firo Hall at an estimated cost of
$1,000 and to remodel the present Fire
Hall, giving the fire truck a smaller
space so that It may be kept from
freezing during the winter months.
The firemen promised to contribute
$250 towards the cost of the improvements.
That the facts regarding the policy
of the Presbyterian Church of Canada
may be accurately known to the public, the Presbyterian Church Union
Movement committee recently made
the following official statement on the
It has been suggested that there ls
some difference of opinion as to the
church's position on the union question. Let the General Assembly speak
for Itself. In 1916 the Assembly by a
vote of about four to one expressed Uh
mind as follows:
"1. That ln accordance with the recommendations of this General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in
Canada do now resolve to unite with
tho Methodist Church of Canada and
the Congregational Churches of Canada to constitute the 'United Church
of Canada.'
"2. That a committee be appointed
to carry out t he policy of tie Assembly."
In 1921 at Toronto, the General Assembly again expressed Its mind by
a vote of about four to one in the following terms:
"1. Be it resolved that this General
Assembly take such steps as may be
deemed best to consummate organic
union with the Methodist and Congregational Churches of Canada, as expeditiously as possible.
"2. That a representative committee be appointed with Instructions to
confer with negotiating churches and
to carry out the policy of the Assembly and to report to the next Assembly."
We submit from the above facts that
to any fair-minded person the policy
of the Presb., terian Church, as expressed by Its supreme court, ls perfectly clear and unambiguous.
It has been contended that the presence of anti-unionists on the Assembly's union committee indicates tbat
I: was not Intended to definitely promote the union. In answer to this
contention, permit us to state that
these anti-unionists were appointed as
a result of a specific request from
leaders of the anti-union section of the
assembly. This was agreed to by the
unionists In a spirit of conciliation.
The City Clerk wishes to Inform the
public that his office will be open
from 10 to 12 a.m. and 3 to 6 p.m.,
every day except Sunday.

Aside ship and c.l.f. prices also have
advanced in sympathy with domestic.
While strong domestic buying of last
week was the main cause of the advance, the fact that European prices
of practically all the metals have increased despite Ruhr situation also
had Its effect.
Domestic demand continues mainly
for February, March and April shipments, and ls strong from both wire
and brass mills.
While European buying Is off somewhat as result of advance, France and
England continue to make fair commitments. Last week French buying
was unusually good. German purchases have been email since Thursday. Chinese bought moderately Saturday, but did not exercise nearly all
the options outstanding. With rise of
price It ts believed Orient demand will
become active.
While domestic consumers are still
hunting for copper under -5 cents delivered, they are meeting with little If
any success. It would appear that 15-

continued strength of metal prices on

Ruhr situation ls well founded on accurate diagnosis of European situation. Some domestic producers are
already holding for 151-8 cents.

"Cougar" Smith Arrives In Town Last
Thursday With Five—Collects
$200 for Week's Work.
Robert Smith ot Union Bay, commonly known as "Cougar" Smith, arrived in town last Tuesday and displayed five cougar carcasses ln front
of Mr. John Balrd, Government
Agent here, and walked out with a
cheque for no less than $200.
Three of the mountain lions were
males. They were secured In the
vicinity of Cameron Lake after a
weeks hunting.
Mr. Smith has been a particularly
bad friend ot the cougars around here
for some time past, hence tbe name
"Cougar" Smith. To date he has bagged 73 cougars. He is greatly assisted while hunting by his well trained
dogs. A bounty of $40 Is paid on the
cougar, while his skin and carcass can
usually be sold at a very remunerative price. The cougars are becoming
like Con Jones, when they see Smith
coming they don't stop to argue.

Boston.—For the year 1922 tho U.
S. and Canada exported 725,000,000
pounds of copper, an Increase over
1921 of over 100,000,000 pounds. Germany was the largest buyer, taking
210,000,000 pounds in the first eleven
months of 1922. The exports for 1922
were in excess of 1918, and only exceeded by 1917.
Boston.—Chile Copper Company

three months of 1922.

The little re-union dinner had worn
to Ub end. Claude Bassett lighted his
cigar and puffed happily.
'Wonderful to be back again in
England," he said. "I was beginning
to get sick ot Japan. One misses a
lot ot things, especially the girls."
Then you haven't surrendered
your tough old muscle of a heart to
any Mimosa San of your acquaintance?" remarked Harvey Lingard
with a laugh.
"Not exactly."
"Talking of women," said Lingard,
after a moments pause, "I don't know
If I told you that I am thinking of
getting married."
No, you didn't. Just like you, you
absent-minded old sinner. Well, the
usual congratulations, old chap."
"Who Is the lady?" asked Bassett
carelessly. "Anybody ln the profession?"
'No. What little I have seen of
actresses during my play-wrltlng career has not made me fancy them
much. The lady I am marrying doesn't
do anything ln particular. She's a
widow. Her husband died a year or
two back. She's lived abroad for
years. A perfect angel! Not a bit
like the modern frivolous woman.
Looks like one of those saints you
see ln the National Gallery. Walt a
moment! I fancy I have her photograph in one of these pockets."
He took from his pocket-book the
portrait. Claude Bassett gave a low
"Jove!" he muttered, half to himself.   "That's funny!"
"What's funny!"
"I'll swear I've seen this lady before. In fact, unless I am very much
mistaken it's-*-"
He broke off, flushing furiously. He
looked remarkably uncomfortable.
One would have said that tbe photograph had roused sudden memories
which were anything but pleasant.
Lingard looked at him narrowly.
"Here, 1 say, what on earth Is the
matter with you?" he enquired.
"Aren't you well?"
"Yes. I'm all right. It's nothing,
old chap.   Sorry I bothered you."
Something strange, mysterious, sinister lay behind his manner. Lingard
put down his cigar and said firmly—
Walt a moment. I can't let this
pass. You said you had seen Sybil
before. Then you behaved very
queerly. One would have Imagined
you were keeping something back."
A pause followed. It was obvious
that Bassett was asking himself what
he should do. Presently, his face
hardened. He leaned forward, speaking ln a low tense voice—
"Old man, you are right. Yes, I
was keeping something back. -But the
fact is I got such a shock that I really
didn't know what to say—what to do.
Oh, it's Impossible—out of the question."
"Will you tell me what you are
driving at?"
"Yes, I'm your pal, and I ought to
tell you, but it's hard, very hard.
You'll probably want to kick me when
I do tell you. But I can't see a decent
fellow going blindfold Into a marriage
like this."
Lingard stared at him stupidly. His
heart was racing like a clock running
down. What a queer change had come
over things. A few minutes ago they
had been carelessly eating their dinners, discussing the most frivolous ot
frivolities. The latest revue, the funny
clothes that women wor now-a-days,
the antics of a comedian. And now,
without the shadow of a .warning,
tragedy seemed stalking to that table.
Lingard poured out some brandy
and drank it quickly. He felt better
now. He could face that queer look
in the eyes ot his chum—that queer
accusing look.
"You have met Sybil before?"
aBked, in a low trembling voice.
"I have seen her many times, but
I have not spoken to her. I had an
official position ln Yokohama, had to
be very circumspect. There were
places I could not be seen entering.
One of those places was the house run
by the lady In that photograph."
"Bassett! Be careful what you are
"Old man, I'd as soon hang myself
as tell you all this, but it's got to be.
Thank Heaven you Bhowed me that
photograph. I may be just in time
to save you from marrying one of the
vilest women on earth."
A wild cry of rage was on the point
of quitting the lips of Lingard, but he
choked It back. Anger would avail
nothing. Surely, BaBsett must have
some reason for making these horrible charges. He was mistaken, of
course. He had Been some likeness in
Sybil to that Yokohama woman, and
had jumped to conclusions. Foolish
to quarrel with his best pal.
"LlBten," he said, trying to control
his voice. "Will you tell me plainly
what you know about this lady of
whom Sybil reminds you?"
"She kept a gambling-house In one
of the vilest parts of the town. All
sorts of funny pranks went on there.
Gambling was not the worst, I fancy.
But there's no need for details. Anyway ,the authorities woke up at last,
and the place was closed a year ago.
By the way, how long has your fiancee
been back in England?"
"Just under a year," replied Lingard, In a low terrified voice.
"Then it is she right enough. It's
Impossible there could be such a likeness. Impossible! Id swear to It being the portrait of Mrs. Lemesurier ln
any court In Europe."
A long, long pause followed.   Both
men looked utterly wretched.   It was I ,„ a pretty bad sort 0( womall| ,gn,t

learn to keep their faces unmoved.
But I watched her. Over and over
again, I saw her eyes seeking my face.
She was asking herself if I knew."
Lingard rose and paced tbe room.
"Look here!" be cried, suddenly
losing all his command. "I won't believe It. Do you hear? I won't believe
it, and I can't. Any man might make
a mistake ot this kind. Good Heavens!
Haven't people been hanged before
now because they bore a startling
likeness to other people? You'll have
to give me some very convincing
proofs of all this before I'll believe
that she's anything but the best and
purest woman on earth."
Bassett shrugged his shoulders.
"I can't give you any proofs," he
replied. "And if you really mean lo
marry her after what I have told you,
then you must go ahead.   That's all."
Suddenly he added—
"Look here! It's a rotten thing to
suggest, but why don't you ask her
straight out whether what I have told
you is true or false?"
Lingard laughed miserably.
"I wouldn't Insult her," he replied.
"Besides, you forget one thing—"
"If she were Indeed the woman you
fancy her to be, she wouldn't stick at
telling a few lies."
"By Jove, that's true! I'd forgotten
Silence followed for a little time.
Then not quite knowing what to Bay
next, Bassett aBked about Llngard's
new play.
"From what you told me of it last
night? it ought to be a big success,"
he said rather lamely.
"The play!" Lingard laughed miserably. "Good Heavens, I'd almost forgotten it! Yes, you're right. I think
there's something ln It. Hallo! What's
For Bassett had suddenly hit the
table, with a little cry which sounded
remarkably like "I've got It!"
He darted up and began to pace the
room excitably. "It's an Idea!" he
muttered. "It's easy to work. It
would probably prove everything."
"What are you driving at?"
"Listen.   In this play of yours, there
At length Lingard spoke slowly—
"Listen," he said. "You must see
her. That is absolutely imperative.
Perhaps when you see her as she
really Is, you will change your mind
—will admit what a horrible wrong
you have done her. Her photograph
ls good, but it's not perfect. You've
made a mistake."
"I'm afraid not," said the other sorrowfully; "but, of course, I'll do what
you suggest."
"Will you lunch with us tomorrow
at the Savoy? Of course, If, by any
terrible chance, you should find yourself right, you'd keep quiet. You
wouldn't make a scene?"
"Is It likely?" he answered.
"Then meet us In the vestibule at
one o'clock."
He called for the bill and settled
It. The two men went to the hat-
"Won't you come round to my hotel
and have a final drink?" asked Bassett.
"No, thanks, I want to get home. I
feel I don't want to speak to a soul
Ull I know about her, one way or the
other.    Good night!"
"Good night!" said Bassett wretchedly.
The luncheon had ended long since.
Sybil had departed to pay some calls.
The two men were seated ln Llngard's

Lingard pointed to a chair.

hysterical polar bear. There! Forgive
tte, old chap! I don't want to be a
disagreeable beast, but I'm all unstrung. I'm not myself. That infernal

Bassett sat down.
"Poor old chap," he said. "I understand.   Don't worry.   I'm not vexed."
Lingard seated himself and with
trembling fingers filled his pipe. The
act of smoking seemed to calm the
"Well?" he said.   "Go on."
"My suggestion ls that you make a
test. You told me last night that the
play was not finished, that several
scenes still remained to be written.
Why not work into one of those scenes
several episodes ln the life of Mrs.
Lemesurier? No. Don't look so disgusted. Just hear me out. It would
be easy for me to supply you with a
tew of the leading incidents, incidents
so strange, so unusual, so bizarre that
any woman who had taken part In
them would most certainly show some
kind of emotion If she beheld them
once again on a stage."
Lingard nodded.
"The Play-scene from Hamlet!
That's the idea, is it?" he muttered.
"Exactly. I'm not claiming any
originality tor the idea, but I want to
help you to get at the truth. I've told
you ulready there's no way of proving my statements. You've got to take
my word, and If you won't do that,
then make this test. Come! What
do you say?"
"You mean that I should reproduce
those Incidents and then take Sybil
to bcc the play. It's a horrible notion!"
"Is It? Walt a moment! You swear
Hint she Is Innocent. Very well! II
you believe that, where is the horror
of the suggestion? If she is indeed
the Innocent woman you fancy her to
he, the play will be just a play ami
untiling more."
This argument obviously made an
Impression on the author. That look
of negation In his eyes went out, leaving Instead something like n glimmer
of genuine Interest.
"I never thought of that," ho Baid
slowly. "Yes, you'ro right. What Is
there to fear? She would never know

Upon my word, I might almost think
about It."
"Do! Believe me, old chap. I'm trying to do the right thing. Wouldn't
you, If you believed a pal was going
to commit a hideous mistake, do all
you knew to prevent htin?"
"Of course!"
"That's what I'm doing now. Anyway, you shall have all thoso incldonts
written down for you during the next
day or two. They 11 help the play,
too, apart from any consideration of
any other kind."
l.lngard nodded.
"You re a good chap," he said. "And

-hull always know that you were my
Two days later, Lingard received a
letter from his friend enclosing soon
notes of the "Incidents" to which he
had referred. A hasty glance at the
episodes recorded proved to the
author that his play would lose nothing by their Incorporation. On the
contrary, the last act would be
strengthened quite wonderfully by the
use of them.
lie set to work, and full Boon the
episodes were knitted Into his plot,
lie read over the act, amazed by the
remarkable grip which the new Incidents gave to the story. When Mas-
slngham, the actor-manager of the
Alcazar Theatre, where the play was
to be produced, read the manuscript,
he was simply overwhelmed with delight.
"That last act Is an Inspiration, my
dear fellow," he told the author.
"You've done the trick this time, and
done it well!"
But Lingard felt no elation. He was
too much overcome with suspense and
agitation to bother much about the
fortunes ot his play. He believed
heart and soul in Sybil, yet, somewhere at the back ot his brain there
was a queer, Insistent little voice
which whispered that there was just
the fraction of a chance that Bassett
waB right.
Well, he muBt wait—wait!
The play was set down tor production on the twenty-seventh of October.
Harvey Lingard dined with Sybil on
that eventful evening, and she looked
so amazingly sweet and good as she
sat beside him in the little restaurant,
that he cursed himself and Bassett
also for the plot which they had
"It she's not a good woman, I'll
never believe In any man or woman
again," he told himself.
The theatre was filling rapidly when
they arrived. Lingard had acquired
quite a decent reputation, and a first-
night of a new play from his pen Invariably attracted a very smart audience. A Cabinet Minister gloomed
portentously from a- box; tbe stalls
were dotted with people whose faces
were familiar from photographs in
illustrated journals.
But even there, with so many Interesting faces to study, Sybil commanded a lot of attention as she entered
the box. Her beauty was of that compelling kind which admits of no question. People whispered to each other,
asking who she was.
Lingard looked at her with adoring
eyes. He had never seen her quite so
beautiful. Perhaps the excitement engendered by tho first-night expectancy
had heightened her amazltfg loveliness.
He took her hand and held It tight,
and, the warm flesh quivering against
his own, he asked himself whether he
could sit calmly In that box, whilst
Sybil was subjected to the vile test.
Would it not be well to find some pretext for leaving the theatre—to plead
a sudden attack of Illness—anything,
indeed, rather than that he should
play the base part which he had consented to play.
But even as this feeling of shame
burned in his blood, he told himself
that he was a fool. Why bother?
Sybil, as he knew, was Innocent. She
would never drear* that thOBe Incidents had been specially written into
the play. His calmness returned. He
was even able to make some jesting
remarks about certain notabilities in
the audience.
The curtain went up. The firBt act
was received genially enough. The
second caused the audience to lean
forward with hushed expectancy,
greedily awaiting the development of
the thrilling story. And now, Lingard
was almost forgetting the experiment

Most of us can see the bright side
of any calamity as long as we know
others are suffering, too. This sounds
cynical, but it's human, and we all
realize that misery loves company.
Adversity ls not the worst thing In
life. Adversity nearly always ls a
turn In the road. It Is not the end ot
the trail, unless—unless you give up.
Longfellow said; "Be still, sad heart,
and cease repining, behind the clouds
the sun is still shining." It Is a great
thing to remember on a dull and rainy
day ln January that spring is coming.
About once in so often a man hits
what we call a low spot—he has a
hard time getting over the bill. Some
call It a spell of tough luck; others
call It adversity .
Adversity often is a good thing. It
makes a man forget his lofty language
In his days of prosperity and brings
him down to earth. In adversity a
man is free from flatterers, and in this
rarifled atmosphere he gets better
acquainted with himself; and this Is a
big advantage. Prosperity puffs a
man up while adversity often makes
him more dependable.
The real Injury that ndverslty
brings about Is not the loss of money,
not the loss of time, so much as it Is
the loss of his self-confidence. When
a man loses his self-confidence he is
mortally hurt and may be said to be
indeed in ndverslty.
So this is why we prescribe those
lines of Longfellow's: "Thy fate is the
common fate of all; into each life
some rain must fall, sonic days must
be dark and dreary." So If the January
gloom and the February thaw get on
your nerves, just take a hitch In your
belt and say with the Italian: "It's

Having spent some odd hours during tho present winter in reading a
few contemporaneous works of fiction,
we feel moved to ask our readers what
they think of the present day novel
anyway? Tiie odl-time novel took a
very high moral tone. The hero was
a frank-faced and clear-eyed youth
who struggled against fate and circumstances, and who fell in love with
a high-minded girl. Finally they married and lived happily forever after.
Marriage now is apt to be a rather
early incident in the story. The hero
has a capacity for picking out the girl
he really didn't want. This, of course,
was not due to his own luck of brains,
but to some fateful decree of physical
passion which he couldn't help. Afterward he discovers that liis wife is a
nobody. Arund In the next street Is
a pure and high ideal ot feminity

We congratulate ourselves dally on
the immense progress of comfort in
ordinary life.   It appears that In the
last century scientific  Invention has I
made more advance in the matter of;
common  luxury of  living than  had j
been made by many centuries before.
There Is health, there is cleanliness,
there is plumbing, there are the end-1
lesB electric, appliances for simplifying domestic  labor.    There is  light,
there is heat, there are the telephone
and the automobile.   It   seems   that
those poor, benighted earlier people
who had none of those things, could
not have known what the comfort of
life really Is.
Are we any happier for it all? It
Is obvious and notorious that those
who are born to all this wealth and
variety of luxury might appreciate the
lack of It, might feel It keenly If deprived of all these cunning and insinuating arrangements for warding
off the bare attacks of human need.
But when things go on In their normal course we are too likely to accept
our blessings without thinking anything about them. And the old, restless anxious, self-tormenting soul
seeks some new ease, some strange
relief, some unimaglned luxury, just
as much as ever it did.
Even, It is possible to see when we
think of it, the immense danger and
damage ot getting dependent on all
those things which our forefathers did
not need because they did not know
them. We have become gradually enmeshed In a close network of comort
and luxury that, by pampering our
bodies, bids fair to rob us of the brave
freedom of our souls. And no doubt
the great war taught many a hothouse
bred young man that what he had
grown up unthinkingly to consider as
absolute necessaries of life were by
no means Indispensable, that a man
might rarely wash and seldom shave
and yet be a hero. But the strain of
deprivation was often cruel nnd sometimes deadly, and many a soldier grew
to wonder whether he most despised
luxury or longed for It.
The luxuries that really count nre
those of the spirit, the wealth of human affection and the Inexhaustible
beauty of art and nature. These have
been the common property of all ages
and they cost nothing but the simple
effort of training yourself to appre
elate them. How many people refuse
to make even that effort and despise
the most exquisite luxuries the world
affords only because they are within
the reach of everyone!

"He Hasn't Forgotten How to Be Plain
Mr. Lloyd George," Saus
His Wife.
How did Lloyd George and his wife
really take the defeat that meant their
moving from No. 10 Downing Street?
An English lady was curious to know,
and this ls what she discovered when
she called.
"Dame Margaret Lloyd George's
drawing room dispelled any feeling ot
a visit of condolence even before she
herself came in. Gay parrots and
roseson chintz sofas, a bright Are,
modest, but fresh, arrangements of
flowers, portraits of her happy-looking
daughters, wedding group photographs, bookcases that look as though
they held school prizes—this is surely
not the salon of a great political, wirepulling lady; it is 'mother's room.'
Mrs. Lloyd G«orge Speaks.
"Dame Margaret comes in, brisk,
smiling, simply dressed ln a dark blue
gown. I felt that I was shaking hands
with the least dismayed, least apprehensive lady in the political world.
Other women may be hysterically putting on their rather rusty spurs. Dame
Margaret looked rather as though Bhe
had descended thankfully from a long
and exciting journey.
" 'But I thought you wanted to talk
about my husband," she protested,
when I asked a question about herself. What woman, after all, wouldn't
be rather eager to talk about a husband who, on this day after many
years, was at last just a husband again
instead of a Prime Minister?
'"I shall be glad if he does get a

machine, caring only for politics.   The

him that now after so long—is a very

to play golf. And all these years he
has had so little time for his own lite.
On a line morning he would say he
would like to get some golf. Then he

Lloyd George's newly built "cottage"
at Churt, in Surrey, to which he made
such touchingly modest reference during the election, is really a compact
house of moderate size, with a considerable extent of pleasantly wooded
grounds attached. His pathetic talk
of finding his future joy In rearing
"a rhododendron" and "a new snowdrop" ou these fairly extensive
premises was only another illustration
of his rare ability as a serio-comic
actor.   '

Not long ago a farmer received a
$10 payment on his crop.

$10 on to him.
The grocer in turn remembered his
liability to the hardware man, and

The hardware man had occasion to

The extent, value and Importance
of the work In which the Dominion
Chemist. Dr. F. T. Shutt, Is engaged,
are well exemplified in the interim report of the division for the year ending
.March 31, 1922. From this we learn
that a total of 4,122 samples were received from all parts of the country,
during the year at the Dominion laboratories for free examination, Including 2,1 DO samples from the Meat and
Canned Foods division of the Health
of Animals Branch of the Ottawa Department of Agriculture. The results
of all these examinations are. given
ln the report, which can be obtained
free of charge from the Publications
Branch, Ottawa. Agriculturally they
include investigational work with
soils, fertilizers, feeding stuffs, sugar
beets, field roots, silage and forage
crops, waters, etc., but as Dr. Shutt
says, ln a very real sense the division
acts as a bureau of chemistry for the
entire Government service; analytical
work and research having been undertaken not only for all the branches of
tlle Agricultural Department, but also
for the Post Olllce Department and for
the Departments of the Interior, Cus^
toms and Excise, Marine and Fisheries, Naval and Military, and for several commissions and boards in con
nectlon with the soldiers' re-establishments and settlement. A specially important line of work comprises the
chemical and microscopical examination of samples from the packing
houses and canneries throughout the
Dominion, thus ensuring as far as possible that the food products of these
industries conform to the Government
standards of purity.

Ralph Connor, author of "The Sky
Pilot." "The Man From Glengarry,"
and many other popular novels dealing with the life ot Canada, may be a
man of dual personality, in that he is
also the Rev. C. W. Gordon, D. D.,
minister of St. Stephen's Presbyterian
Church, Winnipeg, and ex-Moderator
of the Presbyterian General Assembly,
but he has no two opinions on the
question of church union. In tbe
course of a recent interview, the
preacher-novelist emphatically declared himself as opposed to further delay in the consummation of the union.
"The Interests at stake are so vast
and pressing that the Christian
Church cannot afford to pause for a
single day. merely for the sake ot
pausing or because of any hope that
we may have of winning those opposed
to union to share our convictions.
"We shall have to expect that a
number of brethren will be unable to
see their way to move Into the union
Just now, but no amount of delay will
change their convictions or attitude,"
he continued. "I feel that the delaying of this great movement for Chris-
tion unity ln Canada ls trifling with
interests so serious and inviting disaster so great that I could not accept
responsibility for advising delay."
Speaking of the situation in the
West, with which he is so familiar, Dr.
Gordon said: "There is no doubt in
my mind that as far as Western Canada is concerned, church union ls
practically accomplished, and nothing
that I can imagine will prevent its
formal and complete consummation.
Very few indeed, will be the Presbyterian congregations in the West that
will remain outside the union church."
Dr. Gordon believed that the alignment and mobilization of the Christian
forces of Canada by church union will
do more than anything else to advance
the cause of true religion among the
people. "The preservation of this
church or that church, this name or

tive days. It pays to advertise, for the
consuming public gain the bulk of
their information about commodities
through the printed word. When Day
and Martin were at the height of their
advertising career they gained mention for their product trom such
author sas Dickens, Tom Hood, George
Eliot and Carlyle. Had they continued
to increase their advertising as the
competition with them grew their product might very well have still been
the best seller of Its kind lu the world.

Early to bed,
And early to rise,
Work like hell,
And advertise!
The Irony of falling to keep pace
with modern business requirements Is
Illustrated In the fate that has overtaken the famous blacking Arm of Day
and Martin, which, after an existence
of over 150 years, Is about to be sold.
In Its prime the firm was a "gold
mine." Mr. Burlison, Its managing director, says "the case of Day and Martin is one of the tragedies of British
enterprise." It Is all summed up In
the one phrase, that It failed to advertise. In the old days the blacking was
advertised until It became a household
name, but when the polishes of other
firms came out the directorate of the
time thought that nothing would hurt
the product. They did not meet the
advertising competition. Too late they
found their mistake, for they could
never recover the ground they had
There Is a moral In this for all business undertakings In these competl-

NINE   1/
To Commence Construction
Of University February 15th
Provincial Government to Proceed at
Once With Project—Much Other
Work lo bo Undertaken.
Complete arrangements have now
been made by the Government for tbe
construction of the new university
buildings at Point Orey. The science
building, which was commenced In
1912 but abandoned when partially
finished, will be the first unit ot the
university group to be completed. In
order to hasten construction and assist the unemployment situation as
much as possible, arrangements have
been made for the commencement of
construction by February 15, without
the delay necessary In calling for tenders.
Messrs. Sharp & Thompson, architects, of Vancouver, who won the prize
offered by the board of governors of
the university tor the best plans In
1910, have been retained by the government to supervise construction.
The E. J. Ryan Construction Company
will supply equipment and complete
the science building. All materials
will be bought by the government purchasing agent. In this way many
thousands of dollars will be saved.
The new building will be ready for
occupancy when the next university
term opens.
Hon. Or. Sutherland at Ottawa.
For the purpose ot settling many
matters pertaining to public works ln
British Columbia, Hon. W. H. Sutherland, Minister of Public Works, has
gone to Ottawa at the request ot Hon.
J. H. King, Federal Minister. Hon.
Dr. Sutherland hopes to secure additional federal aid for provincial
highways and be enabled aa a result
to proceed with the completion of
many important highway links.
Another matter to be taken up
afreets nearly every district In the
province. It pertains to bridges pver
navigable streams. The construction
of needed bridges In many places haa
been held up, owing to the high cost
of Including draw-spans.    According
to the present statutes, draw-spans
have to be included ln bridging navigable streams. But many so-called
navigable streams are no longer navigated, and to comply with the law it
would be necessary to spens tens of
thousands of dollars uselessly.
Bridges over the Skeena river at
Terrace and over the North Thompson
river are planned and probably will
be proceeded with as soon as the
necessary changes are made In the
statutes. A marked example of extra
expenditure ln bridge construction ls
that of the railway bridge over the
Fraser rvler at Prince George. There
an expensive draw-span was Included
but since the completion ot the structure the bridge has seen bo steamers
pass under It.
Pacific Highway to be Completed.
After many delays, owing to lack of
money, the Government has decided
to complete the paving of the Pacific
Highway to the International boundary. Some nine miles of concrete
pavement will be put down and the
work will be finished by late summer. As a result there will be an unbroken stretch of hard-surfaced highway from Vancouver to Seattle,
While New Westminster and Vancouver may profit more directly by
the completion of the highway than
other sections, still automobile clubs
and officials all over the province have
urged Hon. Dr. Sutherland to finish
the Job without delay. Greatly increased tourist travel from the United
States will be the direct result of this
Inspection of P. 0. E.
Hon. 3. D. MacLean, the new Minister of Railways, haa made his first
official Inspection trip over the P. G.
E. Railway, He reports the government line roadbed In good condition
and Is planning for the preparation of
a complete survey of the resources
along the line. It Ib expected that a
colonization plan will be worked out
and every effort made this year to
place the line on a paying basis.

ln the Joy of watching his work Interpreted by Masslngham and the clever
people whom he had gathered round
The third act was a positive triumph. The curtain had to be raised
seven times. People entered the box,
shook hands with Lingard, told him
that the play was going to be the real
success of the year, and many other
kind things as well.
He scarcely heard the gracious
words. The fourth act was at hand-
that last act Into which he had written those incidents concerning Mrs.
Lemesurier. He was now very white,
and his throat was dry and painful.
"Come, cheer up!" said Sybil wlthj
a little laugh. "Any one would think,
to look at you, that the piece was being hissed off the stage."
He made some mechanical reply.'
Tbe curtain went up Just then, and
saved him any explanation.
The last act showed the midnight
orgy at the house ot the "wicked woman"—Mrs. Lemesurier. When the
first "episode" suggested by Bassett
began, the halt-distracted author
watched hla companion with eyes that
burned and stung. He saw her lean
forward a little, her hand to her lips.
Her breath came a little more swiftly
than before.
A strange tremor—a sensation of
Intense horror—slowly dawned in the
brain of Lingard. Whyhad Sybil leaned forward—begun to show a new Interest? Why did her left hand grip
the rail of the box, till the fingers
showed the blood racing under tho
skin? Merciful Heaven! Was It possible that— But no. He wouldn't believe It—he daren't.
One by one the Incidents unrolled
themselves. And as each Incident was
Into an almost unnatural silence, Lin-
recorded to an audience now hushed
gard, struck to the very soul, saw
upon the face of the woman beside
him a terrible expression.
In that expression there mingled
subtly astonishment, terror, and, dominating these two emotions, he saw
one other—Rage!   Fury!
She spoke no word. She still leaned forward, clutching the rail of the
box with feverish desperation. He
eyes seemed struck to stone. There
waa a cold light In them that was
scarcely human.
Then Lingard knew!
She had awakened now from her
seml-patrlfled state. Her eyes were
the eyes of a furious thing. She
trembled from head to foot.
"You beast!" she whispered. "So
this la your game, is It? To make
love to me, pretend to care for me,
so that you might study me, make a
character of me—shove me into your
rotten play? How you found out all
this I don't know, I don't care,"
Llngard's heart seemed to stop beating. Great Heaven! WaB this Sybil
speaking—this coarse-voiced woman,
who used the language of the Blum?
So terrible was tbe transformation
that for one moment he could not find
speech.   Then he Bald hoarsely—
"I—I didn't mean— I didn't try—I
—I "
"Shut up!   Damn you!"
She hit him ln the face. Then, with
a savage little laugh, the woman seized her cloak and went out from the
The curtain fell. The audience
shouted and stamped their applause.
Dominating the clamor, there came
an Insistent cry—
"Author! Author! Author!"
But Lingard did not come. He was
on the cold Embankment a few yards
away. He sat huddled, hla face ln
his hands. On his flesh there still
lingered the sting of the blow; ln his
soul there still remained the last look
of the woman whom he had been mad
enough to love!
Wonderful Woman!
First nurse cornea down and announces to agonized father tbat wlfey
has given birth to a bonny and bouncing boy. "Wonderful woman, your
wife!" she remarks.
A few seconds later second nurse
arrives and announces the arrival of
a baby girl. "Wonderful woman, your
wife!" Bhe alao remarks.
Eventually doctor arrives and announces that the third has turned up.
"Come up and see your wife," says he.
"She'll be quite able to stand it!"
They went up and doctor, patting
wlfey on the shoulder remarks again,
"Wonderful woman! Wonderful woman!"
"Yes, wonderful woman, right
enough," sighs hubby. "But don't go
shaking her about like that. You
never know what might happen!"

Not "honor," did I say?

When yer think-tank's" gone astray.
Some canna see the day approach,
That heralds Scotia's bard,
But they mun awa' wi' jug an' gill,
Tae fill wl' something hard.
Noo the poems "Robbie" did compose,
Sae llchtsome an' sae grand,
Were clean awa' beyond the pow'er
0' a weak an' fuddled hand.
The stuff he wrote when entertained
By lords an' ladies gay,
Is only fit tor muddled brains,
Tae peck, an' pass the day.
The reason we rever his name,
An' sing his praise sae high,
Is Just because he did his best,
When sober, sound and dry.
We've   read   some   poems   "Robbie"
They're clean ayout the pale,
Their author wasna' prood o' them,
An' noo they bae gane stale.
The follies "Robbie" rued so dear,
That scunnered his ain eel,
Wad yet pit ub on their track again.
An' hound us on tae hell?

Just listen tae:
"Is there a man whose judgment clear.
Can others teach the course to steer,
Yet runs himself life's mad career,
Wild as the wave,
Here pause, and thro' the starting tear.
Survey this grave.
"The poor Inhabitant below
Was quick to learn, and wise to know,
And keenly felt the friendly glow.
And softer flame,
But thoughtless follies laid him low,
And stained his name."

The secret of why so many editors
die rich has been revealed by one of
them wbo haB made an exhaustive
study of the matter. His investigations have revealed this:
After a good deal of study and work,
we have at last figured out why so
many editors get rich. Here Ib the
secret of success: A child Is born
ln the neighborhood, the attending
physician gets $25, the editor gives the
lound-lunged youngster and the happy
parents a Bend-oft and gets $00. It ls
christened: the minister gets $10 and
the editor gets $00.
It grows up and marries: the editor
publishes another long-winded flowery
article and tells a dozen lies about
the beautiful bride, the minister gets
$10 and a piece of cake, the editor
gets $00,
In the course of time It dies and
the doctor gets $26 to $100, the mln
lster gets another $15, the undertaker
gets from $50 to $100; the editor publishes a notice of the death and an
otltuary two columns long, lodge and
society resolutions, a lot of poetry and
receives $00. No wonder so many
editorB get rich. — Pacific Printing

In working for an Increase ln population we must remember that agriculture and other productive Industries must go hand in hand. When we
promote reclamation by irrigation or
by the clearing of logged-off lands and
when we promote a better agriculture, as we should do, we should at
tbe same time promote the manufacturing Industry by the use of water
power for the utilization of products
of farm, forest and mine. We should
manufacture cloth from our own wool
dress our own beef and mutton, make
our own lumber, make harness and
leather goods from the hides of our
stock and manufacture a multitude of
other articles from the raw products
of our state and with the use of water
power now wasted.
Coincident with the work of a
larger population and the development
of agriculture and manufacturing we
should guard the natural resources
which are ours. The attention of the
entire Province should be directed to
the conservation of forests and ot natural reforestation by fire control systems and fire control regulations, to
the development of our agricultural
possibilities ,to the utilization of water power for manufacturing purposes
and the lowering of the costs of transportation.

Most Canadians are proud, and
Justly so, of the public school systems
of the Dominion, the general excellence of the currlculums, and the
democratic basis of administration
compare very favorably with similar
systems throughout the world. In
theory, at any rate, they efford to
every child, no matter what his parentage or social condition an equal
opportunity to acquire an education
ai the expense of the state.
The efficiency of the Bystem is however another matter, of necessity when
so much liberty is allowed to local
boards, there is a wide divergence of
opinion as to the Important parts of
the curriculum and In the prominence
given to the teaching of possible subjects.
Again let me say that 1 am sure the
Idea behind such liberty is right and
wise, for who more than the parents
through their elected representatives,
bave the right to say what Is In their
opinion Important and what of little
value. The purpose of education
might, I suppose, be defined as the
stimulating and encouraging the
fullest development of the mental
moral and physical capacities of the
pupil; to lit nnd train the pupil to take
his place as an intelligent and efficient
member of the state and society, in
Bhort to prepare him for the business
of living with his fellows. With this
definition as our guiding principle,
let us enquire how far the public and
high school system as carried out In
this city is really efficient. Or to put
It in another way: Does the excellent
and painstaking work of our teaching
staff really fit and prepare a fair percentage of our boys and girls for the
business of living.
One cannot, I think, fail to be
amazed at the disproportion between
the number of pupils entering tho
receiving closs in any one year and
the number of pupils passing out al
the other end of the public school Into
the high school. Of late years the
average number of pupils received has
been about fifty and the number entering high school about fifteen. A further examination will, I think, reveal
the fact that a great proportion of the
leakage occurs after the pupils have
reached the age of about twelve or
thirteen years, the age when the constructive tendencies and motor activities of the pupils normally begin to
manifest themselves, and the stage in
the developing mind of the boy nnd
girl at which It is most difficult to
arouse and hold the Interest and enthusiasm of the pupil. The economic
factor must also not be lost sight of;
aware of the ability ln themselves to
do things for which they sec that
monetary compensation may be had,
they tend naturally te look upon the
time spent in studies which seem to
them, abstract and of little real value,
ns so much time wasted and In many
cases sacrifice real and permanent
value for present gain.
As a result of correspondence with
other school districts and through my
own observation I have been led to
the conclusion that it Is at this stage
that the teaching of manual work and
domestic science and art, ia of real
value. All who have tried the plan
speak enthusiastically of its value In
holding tbe Interest and stimulating
the attendance at school ot pupils ot
this age, while the concrete results of
such teaching become ever more apparent when we reflect that a large proportion of the pupils will in any case
become manual workers after the
school days are ended.
In our public school a beginning has
been made in the teaching of these
subjects, und boys and girls in grades
one and two receive Instruction tn
hand work, and needlework Is taught
to all girls in grades three to seven.
Here also In Its simplest beginnings
il Is found to be of the greatest value
anil pupils are reported to look forward to the times for such Instruction.
To conclude then: My plea Is that
a full consideration be given to the
desirability and possibility of making
provision for fuller teaching ot these
subjects in our local school, and to
those (nnd there are sure to be some)
who raise the bugbear ot expense, let
me say that rightly viewed, "Education is investment, not expense."

"I'll tell ye—it's because it's empty."

"No, never.
"And do ye ken the reason?—because It's cracked."

The following letter from Mr.
Dauphin is eloquent testimony to the
good work being done for so-called
chronic stomach sufferers:
Gentlemen,—I had stomach trouble for many years; tried everything
I could find on th market in the
line of medicine and many doctors,
and nothing did me any good until
I tried Jo-To. I thought I would
give it a trial nnd found to my great
surprise that it was going to do me
some good; so I simply continued to
use it and I find it is doing the work.
You are at liberty lo use this and
the enclosed photo in any way you
choose. Hoping that it will help
others, as it ia certainly the right
kind of medicine.
Jo-To is simply wonderful for relieving Indigestion suffering. Gas
pains, sour burning stomach (heart-
bum), acidity, belching, swelling and
all after eating distress is relieved
quickly and harmlessly with Jo-To.
Jo-To is guaranteed to give relief
or your money refunded. Sold nt all
drug stores and guaranteed to be
absolutely harmless.

At the Hindu Talisman Cottage,
123, Lower Circular Rd., Calcutta (India) SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1923,
The second annual meeting of the
B. C. Fairs Association was held at
New Westminster on January 15 in
the office of the Royal Agricultural
and Industrial Association. The attendance was small although It had
been hoped that the holding ot the
B. C. Dairymen's Convention on the
two succeeding days would have
brought more delegates into town.
Amongst the resolutions passed,
those of chief Interest were the ones
dealing with Increased grants from
the Government and the resolution
submitted by the Langley Agricultural
Association was finally adopted with
minor alterations which urged upon
the Government the advisability of increasing the grant ln aid of fairs, ln
future, to 50 per cent, of the prize
money paid the previous year including monies paid on ladles' work, domestic science, etc. A further resolution by the Ladysmlth Agricultural
Society bearing on a better representation on the Board ot Directors of
Vancouver Island associations resulted In the appointments ot second and
third vice-presidents, Mr, J. Stewart
of Ladysmlth, being elected to the
office of third vice-president.
Officers Elected.
The list of officers for the year 1923
Ib as follows:
President—W. Waldon, Duncan.
First Vice-President—C. Hawthorne,
Second Vice-president— A. K. Goldsmith, Aldergrove.
■Third Vice-president—J. Stewart,
Board of Directors—These were reelected by acclamation: George Sang-
ster, Victoria; D. E. MacKenzie, New
Westminster; H. S. Rolston, Vancouver.
Secretary-treasurer—Wm. J. Bon-
Sato of Fairs.
There was considerable discussion
about the date ot the New Westminster
fair, the general feeling of the meeting seemed to be that all fairs would
gradually advance their dates bo that
they would become summer fairs
rather than fall fairs. The three big
coast exhibition dates were tacitly
understood as being the same as those
ln 1922, the final adjustment, however,
could not be made until after the holding of the North Pacific Fairs Convention at Vancouver at the close of
the month of January. Owing to the
Interior associations being so poorly
represented at the meeting It was decided that the final allocation of dates
should be taken up by the secretary
with the executive and Individual associations be notified as soon as possible of the results.
Financing of Delegates.
This subject also gave rise to discussion and it was felt that some
scheme should be worked out so as
to enable delegates from Interior
points to attend the annual meeting.
The executive was instructed to work
out a scheme along these lines which
could be put Into effect next year.

News of Courtenay District
The Women's Auxiliary ot the Anglican Church, Courtenay, was responsible on Saturday last tor a children's
ci.teitainment which was held in
Booth's Hall. This event was given
in lieu ot the Christmas social which
was postponed on account of Illness
among the children at that time.
There were about seventy-five little
ones present, and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves with games for
which special prize's were given.
Real estate has been somewhat
active at Courtenay during the past
week. The house and two lots In the
Orchard, owned by Mr. J. R. Denholm
has been purchased by Mr. John
Another property that changed
hands is the Hurford place on the
Condensery Road. This was bought
from Mr, Hurford about four years
ago by Drake brothers, who have since
left the district. On Saturday last
Mr. Charles Tipper became the owner.
This Is a forty-acre tract with fourteen acres cleared and excellent buildings.
We are glad to note the renewed
activity among the farmers of Comox
Valley in regard to the question of
co-operation. The fact that they have
become sufficiently interested to ask
a man of the ability of Mr, Boyd
Oliver, one of the recognized authorities of California on the subject, to
come to Courtenay to address and advise them needs no comment.
There ls no denying the fact that
the co-operative movement has been
the salvation of farmers In many parts
of the United States and Canada, particularly the former Without unity
of effort, more especially ln the marketing or selling end of any industry,
there Is bound to be a great loss of
money to the producers. It has been
so in many lines of manufacture and
the Bame applies, perhaps with greater
force to the agricultural industry A
short ime ago The Islander published
a partial list ot States of the Union
to the south ot us In which' the
farmers had organized co-operative
societies or associations. This list
made an Imposing array. Perhaps ln
some of the communities where organization has been effected there had
been shown for a long time just the
same Inertia as has existed here.
There is no need to ask "what are
the results of co-operation?" They
are apparent. California has today
the most substantial marketing organization In the world. The California
Fruit Growers' Association has put
millions of dollars Into the producers'
pockets that would have been lost to
them If the old system of personal
competition had still been ln vogue.
The organization has lifted the southern fruit growers out ot bankruptcy
and placed him In a position of near-
affluence. He today sets the price of
his product; he does not have to listen to the dictates of his greatest
opponent, the middleman. He ls making money because his neighbor Is
making money and vice versa.
Maybe the millenlum haB not dawned for the American fruit grower, but
it Is a certainty that his condition has
been materially bettered since the
coming of real co-operation. Some
lessons will have been learned as the
result of Mr. Oliver's visit. It may
be one of them Is that, not having
advanced far by localized effort the
Idea of a provincial organizer, even If
he comes from a part of the continent
that has made an undoubted success
of co-operation, outside of our own
province, will receive consideration.
Novelties and Noise Making Schemes
AU Contributed to Evening's
COURTENAY.—The carnival dance
at the Gaiety Theatre last Tuesday
night was a huge success, the affair
being under the management ot Mr.
F. R. Fraser-Biscoe, manager ot the
The hall was decked with balloons,
which were hung overhead. Early In
the evening some one a little taller
than the rest, jumped for a balloon;
the crowd soon followed this example
and soon all couples were sporting a
balloon, jealously guarding It trom
some other eager hand that was either
ready to snatch it away or add a little
zest to the fun by a miniature explosion, some of which had already occurred.
Novelties Galore.
The real festivities were reserved
till after the refreshments were served. There were plenty of novelties for
all and everyone secured at least two
or three souvenirs. Some gathered
enough bushy ticklers together to deck
themselves out as hula-hulas ln
native garb and others made pretense
of headgears startling ln their appearance. Serpentines were then shot
around the hall and for many dances
It was a mesh of serpentine varlated
with the teasing ot many ticklers. The
noise-making novelties added their
contribution which was no small factor ln the evening's pleasure. Everyone was out for a good time and the
spirit of merry carnival was the order
of the day.
Another Dance on Feb. 13.
Mr. Biscoe was In charge of the
evening's proceedings and during the
latter part of the evening attempted
to make several announcements, but
the happy, noisy crowd refused to give
him a hearing for a few minutes, until
finally, after much persuasion they
decided to let him speak. He announced the postponement ot Boyd
Oliver's lecture and also that there
would be a St. Valentine's dance in
the Gaiety Theatre on Tuesday, February 13.
Tsolum Lodge, Knights of Pythias,
held a whlst drive on Wednesday evening ln Booths' Hall, thirteen tables
being required to accommodate the
card players. Mr. William Sutcliff was
master of ceremonies and a most enjoyable time was spent. Ladles' prizes
were won by Mrs. L. V. Herd, first;
Mrs. H. S. Baker, second, the consolation going to Mrs. Dlmm. Gentlemen's
prizes were won by Mr. J. Scruton,
first; Mr. H. S, Baker, second, while
Mr. A. Attree won the consolation.
After cards dancing was indulged in
for an hour.

Ills Report on  Redistribution  Alms
nt   Strengthening   of
SoUdnrily Here.
Preliminary steps for redistribution
of federal constituencies in British
Columbia are under way. As a result
this province will have fourteen members tn the House of Commons, an Increase of one over the number tor the
last decade.
W. M. Ivel, Liberal candidate of
Victoria at the last Dominion election,
is now making his report on the situation here and recommendations to the
Government as to what should be
done, it was learned recently.
In response to the Government's request for Information, .Mr. Ivel has
proposed a plan whicli will give Vancouver Island three members instead
of two and one-half as at present. The
other half of the extra member the
province will get can be worked In
the lower mainland somewhere, he
At present Victoria city has one
member; Nanaimo, which includes all
from Victoria city limits up the
Island to Nanaimo, one member; while
the rest of the island is in the Comox-
Alberni constituency which embraces
a large slice of the mainland coast
above Vancouver.
Victoria city will retain its one
member as the city population within
the city limits ls exactly the member
quota which is 38,000.
The Ivel plan, it was explained,
would strengthen the claims of this
Island for consideration at Ottawa as
it would mean the island would be
represented by three all-Island men.
The bulk of the population of the
Comox-Alberni seat is on the Island.
