Distinguished   Author   Honors!
Local Canadian Club
Those members of the Comox District Canadian Club who missed hearing Mr. F. P. Grove on Tuesdny evening at the Union Hotel, Cumberland,
missed one of the finest orations heard I
by the local club. The presideni, Mr. j
Seymour Abrams, wns in the chair j
and In introducing the speaker, said,)
"Wc have with us to-night, gentlemen,;
one of Canada's most distinguished
authors, a man born of wealthy and
cultured parents In Sweden, who
through no fault of his own was forced at an early age to carve out his
own future, after being educated in
various European countries. After
many wanderings," said Mr. Abrams,
"our guest this evening found a home
in Western Canada and for many
years has- been a teacher on the prairies of the west. It gives me very much I
pleasure to Introduce to you Mr. Frederick Phillip Grove."
The distinguished author on rising
was given a big ovation by the forty
members present. He commenced his
address by telling his listeners that
as the chairman had painted out he
had not always travelled in luxury
during his many wanderings, ln fact,
he said, "many times I have travelled i
via the rods and many, many times.'
for months on end had not had what
respectable people would call a decent
The speech given by Mr. Grove was
a masterpiece of idealistic eloquence
which could not fail to impress all
those who heard him. He chose for
his subject, "Canada, the Spiritual
Awakening of an Individual—or Nationhood," and dealt with the spiritual side as opposed to the materialistic. His remarks, said Mr. Grove,
would have to be brief and he sincerely hoped they would bear with him.
He did not want to weary them but he
would give them a fairy tale, and in
the telling of the tale, the distinguished author traced over incidents In his
early life, of wanderings here and
there, covering a period of years,
mostly spent In Europe, until the time
he landed on the edge of civilization
in Manitoba. He described early trials
among the pioneers and how in a cold
room, sitting with a sheepskin coal
over his shoulders and cotton gloves
on his hands he wrote a book, about
the year 1394, which was not published until 1927, "The Search for America."
He described very vividly how he had
gone from place to place on the prairies, ever seeking and during all this
time was spending his money on books.
These books were left behind at tho
various farms he had worked at, careful tab being kept on all the books
left behind and on sending for them
years later was overjoyed to find he
was the proud possessor of a library
of over 9,000 books.
We hear a great deal, said Mr.
Grove, of the unlimited natural resources of Canada, but he doubted if
this was anything of which we could
be very proud, since it was not we who
could take credit for the fertility of
the soil, the richness of the mines or
the greatness of the timber. Civilization, he maintained, had always risen
from spiritual, rather than materialistic sources, and cited Spain, Sicily
and Egypt with their sudden decline,
as instances of the latter and gave
Judah, with its religion, and Greece,
with its art, as examples of the former.
Was the luxury, which dragged
Rome into a swamp of vice, the thing
which  was  coveted   for  Canada?   hi

VICTORIA, Oct. 8.—Coal production in British Columbia during the
eight months ended August 31st last

Mr. E. A. Haggen, editor of tho

in the Vancouver Daily Province recently, is authority for the statement
that B.C. will likely have an iron and
steel mill at an early date. Speaking
of the contemplated project, he says:
"British Columbia Is likely to have
an iron and steel industry at an early
date. The works will have a capacity
of 1000 tons of Iron nnd steel products per day. for which the market Is
stated to be assured. The site of the
works will be on Vancouver Island.
Associated with the Industry will be
coal and coke plants and hydroelectric power installations."

"Tlie Patent Leather Kid" is the
story of a pugilist who is drafted for
the war much against his will, but
who emerges with a decoration of
bravery and ultimately wins thc girl
lie loves.    The story gives  Barthel
mess every chance for a human, convincing portrayal of a man who is
redeemed through suffering and a
woman's love, and tho ever-popular

Stool Pigeons
l suppose we are all unanimous in
our condemnation of stooI-plBeons,
the agent-provocateur. The lowly
order of mammality, all through the
ages, lias received the contempt and
derision of all honest men, who break
the law only under provocation. This
Judas   iHcariot  of  the   race  has   no
friends but be has many employers.
He has no trade hut he la always employed; he has no principles but ho
operates ut all times under the shadow of tbe law. But I don't think for
a moment that Attorney-General R,
II. Pooley'w magniflcient gesture of
repudiation and scorn of the hree.S
will abolish the stool-pigeon from the
land. The matter goes deeper than
(but. Stool-pigeons are born with
tho complex that makes them furtive
spies upon their fellow-men. If they
nave no master, they will seek a market for their information, and markets are always to bo found for their
wares. The only justification for the
"stools" at all' lies in tho fact that
there are bootleggers, anil if Ihe pas-
ping of one means the cancellation of
the other, (be equation will be perfect

There has been a record crop. The West will continue to flourish. In a thousand cases, a few
years of struggle with nature has been rewarded.
And what will it mean? more roads, more ears, more
machinery, more streets and stores and homes and
radios. A brisker trade, more industrial activity in
the east, more shipping and more car loadings per
mile.    More wheels turning all over the country.
Uut the man whose lalours by the favour of
Providence has been mainiy responsible for all this.
His threshine done, he has ti.iic now to think of other
things than wheat and rain and frost and sun and
harvesters, and the mil and steamship companies are
anticipating his thought. In a few weeks now, there
will be a feverish packing of hag:, a collecting of the
childrsn, a dinning of new bats and shoes and a rusti
for the trains.
This, say the transportation officials will be the
year of tie home-going. The English, the Jersiy
Islanders, the Scotcb and the Irish and the Continentals too, Thc Canad'.hii Pacific officials foresee so
great a trek, that the> have already planned many
special trams out of the West, and many steamship
sailings which will facilitate the movement and en-
sore Christmab and New Year's with the old folk
and an inexpensive journey in comfort and luxury.
The Minnedo.ca will give tbe more fortunate onea
n sailing from Montreal on November 28 for Glasgow,
Belfast and Liverpool. On thc seventh of December
the Metagama mid Montclaro will sail from Saint
John, one for Cherbourg, Southampton and Antwerp
and the other fur the Liverpool run. The Melita,
sailing on tlie fourteenth, will stop en route at St.
Helier with a huge number of home-going Channel
Islanders and the Duchess of Athol) sailing on the
fifteenth will take the lust of thosf going home for
Christmas via Glasgow or Liverpool. Thc sailing of
the Muntroyal en the twenty-first is for those to
whom New Year's means more.
Just to illlus'rate to what great extent a good
western crop effects industry; one printing establishment was kept busier than usual for some time
printing an extra order of Canadian Pacific travellers
cheques and money orders. These will, an official
said, be sent or carried by homegoers to praeticnliy
every quarter of the civilized world. Whatever the
world crop condition? may be, the Canadian crop
will be appreciated almost wherever men eat bread.

Associa-1a11   members   of   Hiram   Lodge,   being
four years
tion was held ln the Agricultural Hall
on Tuesday evening.
The treasurer. Mr. J. H. Maclntyre,
then submitted the financial statement for the year. This showed that
the Fall Pair, in spite of a somewhat
poor day. had made a good sum on
thc right side. The prize list of nearly a thousand dollars had been paid
In full and all accounts were also paid.
It would probably be necessary to arrange a small overdraft at the bank
ln the near future. He, too, was In
favor of building up a reserve in case
the association struck a bad day for
its annual fair.
The report of the secretary, Mr. E.
Felix Thomas, then followed. Mr.
Thomas said in part:
'•The outstanding feature of the past
year is the close co-operation between
the Agricultural Association and the
City of Courtenay to the benefit of the
public in the Improvement of the park
and grounds. There is no doubt that
a start has now been made on the
right lines, and that in course of time
the Lewis Park will be Improved and
levelled to compare favorably with the
old agricultural grounds. The purchase of these grounds was completed
early in the year, the balance of the
purchase money being largely contributed by the Ladles' Auxiliary. The
agreement and lease with the city was
duly completed.
"The stock buildings erected during
the year represent good value for the
money expended. Their erection is
entirely justified by the manner in
which they were filled to overflowing
at the Fall Fair. In this connection,
however, it is only right to say that
the showing of cattle was largely due
to two supporters of the Society, who
probably do not care so much for the
prize money and silver cups as they
do to see our annual exhibition a success. The thanks of the association is
certainly due to them.
"How to make the gate receipts for
two or three hours on Fair Day, pay
a prize list of about a thousand dollars, and finance the association for
the rest of the year appears to be a
puzzle. The solution may be a bigger,
brighter and better fair—more amusement attractions with a correspondingly larger gate receipt, and the protection of Insurance against rain.
"While this year's fair could have
been better attended, the opinion has
been expressed that it accomplished
more than any previous fair in th
past twenty years. During the past
two or three years the association
.seems to have passed through a very
difficult peroad.
"A question that the new board oi
directors will no doubt decide at an
early date, Is whether or not they will
make an effort to obtain revenue from
the old hall to cover the overhead, or
close the building up.
The election of officers then took
place and resulted as follows:
Honorary Presidents—The Hon. R.
Randolph Bruce, Lieutenant-Governor
of British Columbia; Mrs. Wm. Lewis
and Mr. Alex. Urquhart.
Presidentr—Mr.  Paul   (acclur
1st Vice-Presldcnt—Mr. John W.

as follows;
Messrs, R. U, Hurford, H S, Baker.
A. M. Stewart, D. M. Isenor. Jas. Reid.
A. R, England. C. W, Lecdam, Wm.
