BIG CELEBRATION
ON EMPIRE DAY
A monster programme, With many valuable prizes,
has been arranged by the Empire Day Celebration Committee for the parade and i ports to be held on Monday
on the "Y" Grounds at Cumberland.
The parade is timed to start from the City Hall at
9.30 a.m., headed by the Cumberland Band, the Mayor
and Aldermen, the May Queen and her Maids of Honor,
school children, Great War Veterans and Fire Department.
The special features of the day will be the parade in
the morning, a baseball game at mid-day between tho
newly-formed Cumberland Baseball Club and the
Courtenay team, and the Soccer football match at
5.30, in which the Cumberland United, holders of the
B. C. Championship, will line up against the Vancouver
Celtics.
Interspersed between those main items are upwards
of 50 other events, starting with races for boys and
girls under 6 up to races for old men under 100, besides
events for girls under 30 and young ladies over that
age! The boys' cracker-eating contest and the Japanese
and Chinese obstacle races alone should be worth going
far to see. A girls' potato race is included, with prizes
valued at $2.50, $2 and $1 for the respective winners.
As the committee has not stated the nature of the
prizes, possibly the winners will have their choice of
the precious "spuds."
We intend to see the ladies' nail-driving competition
even if we have to go without our breakfast to do so.
Tugs-of-war between team of Japanese and teams
of Chinese should provide much amusement.
The prize list for the parade includes $25 for the best
decorated car, $25 for best float, $5 for best decorated
bicycle and $12 for best comic group. These events
will be judged when the parade enters the field.
Crowning of the May Queen will follow immediately
after the parade, then comes a Maypole Dance by the
Bevan school children.
i The valuable prizes allotted to all events should be
the means of drawing good competition. In the Baseball match $100 is the value of the prizes, $70 to" the
winners and $30 for the vanquished—which of course
will be Courtenay!
The programme in full is printed on page 2 of tfiis
issue! Special train leaves Union Bay at 8.30 a.m.,
calling at intermediate points; return train leaves Cumberland at 9 p.m.
The Celebration Committee, of which Mayor D. R.
McDonald is chairman, Mr. A. W. McKinnon treasurer,
and Mr. J. C. Brown secretary, has put in considerable
amount of time in order to get the arrangements complete, and given fine weather this year's celebration
should be the most succeessful and enjoyable ever held
in Cumberland.
At the Soccer football match starting at 5.30, a collection will be taken up during the progres of the game
to help defray expenses. The public will not be slow
in showing their appreciation of the past victories of
our local boys.

Presentation of Medals
To Soccer Champions
The concert and dance hold in the llo-Ilo Theatre on Thursday
evening drew a large crowd of friends and admirers, in spite of
the heavy rain. The members^*!' the Cumberland United Football
Club have every reason to be well satisfied with the magnificent
reception accorded them and words of praise showered on them for
their splendid efforts in winning tho McBride Shield and thus
becoming the Champion Soccer team of British Columbia?
Oh the stage were seated His Worship, Mayor D. R. McDonald,
the city Aldermen, Mr. Thomas Graham, Honorary President of
the Club, and the Cumberland Band. The meeting opened with
"God Save the King," played by the band. Mayor McDonald, in his
opening remarks, said they were gathered there to do honor to
thc winners of the football championship of British Columbia. He
said Cumborland had been on the map heretofore for the quality of
its steam coal, but now it Was on the map again by reason of the
winning of tho Soccer Championship of British Columbia by our
own Cumberland United Football Club.   (Applause.)
Then followed a selection hy the Cumberland Baud entitled "Life Guards."
which was well rendered. Mr. W. Williams of Bevan sang "The Deathless
Army" In line style. "Recollections of Scotland" by thc band called for
vociferous applause. There appears to be several Scotchmen lu tills locality.
Mrs. M. Tr|be, Courtenay, sang a solo, "1 Hear You Culling Me." which also
was well received, the audience demanding an encore. A violin solo by Mr.
Coldwell Graham was pleasingly executed, the audience again insisting on an
encore. A comedy act by the Lapsarinliy Brothers was thc cause of much
merriment.
PRESENTATION OF SHIELD AND MEDALS
Tlie presentation of the McBride Shield and medals, also the Island Cup,
which the local team also won, was tho main feature on tlle programme.
Mr. Thomas Graham, in a short but very pleasing speech, said the task which
had been allotted to blm or presenting thc shield and medals was one of the
most pleasant things of his life. For a great many years he had been associated with football, he having the honor of playing 31 years ago against
thc forerunners of the famous Calgary Hlllhursts, who toured thc coast last
year, when Cumberland made a draw with them. For sixteen years he had been
closely associated with and fostering football on Vancouver Island. The
citizens of the town are under a heavy debt to tlie winners of the cup for what
they had done—they had placed Cumberland upon the map. If tho Cumberland
Football Club will play the consistent game they have during the past season,
he said he was sure they would "bring home the bacon" in the new summer
inter-clty games.   (Applause.)
MEDAL WINNERS LOUDLY APPLAUDED
Ho then called upon the captain of the team, Mr. Thomas Jackson and presented him with the cup and shield, congratulating him as captain of the team
on thc splendid work they had done. (Applause.)
Mr. Graham then called on thc other members of tho team to come forward
and receive their medals, Including A. Wilkinson. Bobby Brown, S. Sullivan,
D. Bannerman. S. Conti, W. Brown. A. Boothmnn and O. Harrison. Several of
tlie members were out of town on fishing trips. As each player was presented
with his medal he was Invited to take a scat on the platform. The sustained
applause accorded each player ns he proceeded to the stHgo showed the high
esteem In which they aro held by citizens.
CLEAN, HEALTHY SPORT
Mr. Graham concluded his duties by remarking that there were two things
necessary for the success of football—lirst, good clean, healthy sport, and the
boys had given this; and second, thc moral and ilnnneial support of tho people
of Cumberland. Tlie players were then asked to line-up on the stage when tho
audience gave tlicm three cheers and a tiger In real Cumberland stylo, following this up with singing "For Thoy Are Jolly Good Fellows."
Master Bradley of Union Bay sang a comic song most delightfully, which
brought down the house, he being loudly encored. Mr. J. Gregory sang "The
Trumpeter" splendidly, he likewise being encored, when he replied with "Ireland Must Be Heaven for My Mother Came From There." The entertainment
came to a close with thc chairman thanking the audience for their attendance
and the playing of "Colossus of Columbus" by thc band. Mr. C. Edwards acted
as accompanist.
Young Leslie Frost Lost In The Bush
Lad Slept Comfortably Under a
Tree While is Father and
Friends Search for Him
A splendid Illustration of the advice
so strongly given by those who know
whereof they speak, of the great importance of keeping one's head when
lost In the forest, Is given by the cool
actions of young LeBlle Frost, the ten-
year-old son of Mr. nnd Mrs. Frost of
Dunsmuir Avenue.
Monday afternoon after school Leslie
and. a friend named Willie Devoy
started out on a hike up towards the
dam, behind Chinatown. The other
lad not caring to climp the big hill,
separated from Leslie at Chinatown
and Leslie proceeded on his way. He
says that on his way back he got on
one of the many skidroads which apparently start from nowhere and end
nowhere. He soon saw that he had lost
his bearings and could not find his way
home in the dark. He cooly gathered
some boughs and leaves and made
nest for the night, sleeping fairly comfortably in spite of the cold at that altitude.
His parents expected him home
about 6 o'clock, but did not get anxlou»
until It began to get dark and thc wanderer failed to return. As time went
by so ther anxiety increased, and at
9:30 a search party started out in live
or six cars for the hills. Among I hose
who went with Mr. Frost and searched
all night, were Messrs. Chas. Graham,
Walker, Devoy, Stacey, Hassell, Billy
RogerB, Tom Scott and Sergt. Cronk
The party searched all night with
lanterns, anticipating all kinds nf
tilings had 'happened to the lost boy
At throe a.m. no trace had been found
of him and the party returned to town
for a cup of hot coffee and a little rest.
realizing they could no little more
while the darkness lasted. .Thoy
started out again at 3:30. Just as tin-
day was beginning to brenk, to resume
the search.
However, at daylight Leslie found
his bearings by the sound of Colliery
whistles, and made his way to (owe.
landing on the railway line As ho
was strolling quite casually along tie
line on his way home, an engineer on
ono of the trnins asked: "Aro you loot,
Leslie?'' and ho replied, "No, hut I
was." On being mid thai Ills fattier
and mother nnd police and friend
were searching for him he look lo hi
heels and soon reached, home, apparently unite well after his night's adventure.

CURIOUS INCIDENTS OF
ACTIONS OF LIGHTNING
Coins Transformed—Foodstuffs
Disappear and Men's Bodies
Crumble to Dust.
A compiler of curious incidents offers the following concerning some of
the actions of lightning.
Whenever lightning strikes money
there ls a possibility of the coins being transformed by the mysterious
fluid. An instance of this kind occurred at Nantes some years ago. A
man was walking along the street
when suddenly he was enveloped in
lightning, yet remained uninjured. On
arriving home, however, he was
amazed to find that a gold piece had
vanished from his purse, and ln its
place was substituted a silver piece.
She lightning had, In fact, penetrated
the leather of the purse and covered
the gold piece with a coating of silver
taken from two. other coins.
Lightning frequently acts the robber
with foodstuffs, and some extraordinary happenings have been recorded
from time to time. On one accaslon a
party ot tourists were preparing dinner when suddenly and without warning a storm arose, followed immediately by vivid flashes of lightning.
A few seconds later not a trace of the
prepared meal was to be seen. The
dishes were strewn on the ground, but
all the bread, cheese and fruit had
vanished, while the bewildered tourists
were covered from head to foot with
straw.
A man was once struck by lightning
and carried a distance of 150 feet without being in the least conscious that
anything unusual had happened until
he was flung up against a wall and received a slight bruise on the knee.
On another occasion a party of soldiers were caught ln a storm and
sought refuge under a tree. All of
them were struck by lightning and
killed. Though dead, they maintained
an erect position, but their bodies,
when touched, crumbled to dust.

One nf tho Hist ln»' .fries of its
kind ever known in this part of the
world hns been commenced at Cloose,
on tho Wcat Const of the Island, a
concern having taken up the bottling
of solmon there. The men employed
number about 15 and are headed by a
returned soldier from Victoria. Tho
party went up tlie coast recently, taking with them 200 cases of the popular
Economy jar, well known to housewives, who use it for preserving purposes. The plan, it is said, is to cook
the fish In the jars. This has been
done ln private households but never
on a commercial scale.

AN UNCONVENTIONAL
WEDDING—"I'LL SAY SO"
The llo-Ilo Theatre will be no place
for a modest man tonight when the
management will show George Walsh
ln his latest picture, "I'll Say So." It
is by no means unusual for a motion
picture to show a wedding- -in fact II
is rather unusual if there is no wedding during thc 'action. But for a
handsome hero to deliberately marry
his beautiful leading lady dressed only
In his—well, his B. V. D's—sounds
rather shrieking.
Of course George WiiIhIi has a perfectly good excuse for his disregard
of the conventions. If you had been
kidnapped by a couple of German
spies and they had taken your girl and
were forcing her to marry one of their
kind., If you were able to escape In
the aforesaid negligee condition you
would marry her yourself no matter
what you had on—and so does George.
"I'll Say So" tells the story of tlie
patriotic man who volunteers but Is
rejected by the navy'and then, because
he canont stay out of it, works up a
. little private war of his own upon a
couple of German spies. How he does
this is developed with many surprises
In the typical Walsh way at the Ilo-llo
Theatre this, Saturday, evening.

The Same Beloved Mary in a
New Character
Following the tremendous successes
of "Daddy Long LegB" and "The
Hoodlum," Mary Pickford's third picture from her own studious comes to
the Uo-IIo Theatre as an extra special
attraction for Empire Day, when there
wll be a matinee at 2 p.m. and the
UBual evening show at 7.
This famous picture has crowded the
theatres In the big cities wherever
shown, and those who admire Mary
Pickford, and who does not, will not
miss seeing this great picture.
How a girl recruited the sturdy
Kentucky night-riders is shown in
"Heart 0' the Hills," adapted from the
story by John Fox, Jr.,. As Mavis
Hawn, a mountain girl, Miss Pickford
is given a part calling for a great
amount of versatility. Probably in no
other picture is she called upon to de-
plot so many varied roles which demand that she act the murderess, the
school girl, the society girl and various
other characters.
The story hinges about the efforts of
Mavis to avenge the death of her
father. In arriving at the solution tf
the murder it is necessary for her to
overcome many obstacles, chiefly those
of city grafters, unwholesome parental
influences and an unscrupulous mountaineer who marries her mother.
Despite the scores of dramatic Incidents ln the picture there is ample
opportunity for MIsb Pickford to weave
in humorous comedy situations In a
most Interesting and timely manner.
A love tale Is interwoven In the plot
about a mountain feud of' long standing
and the story affords Miss Pickford
ample opportunity to score triumphs
as characterized in "Daddy Long
LegB" and "The Hoodlum."
ONE ON CLAKA BUTT.
Many concerts followed up and down
the country under excellent' circumstances and with the best artists, but
at a concert In Southport I had my
first experience of the disrespect
shown to artlsta by persons of a certain Btamp. During the afternoon I
had been rehearsing a duet with Miss
Clara Butt In her hotel apartment and
after 1 left she went on practising
for that evening. Later in the rending
room of the hotel I overheard two men
speaking with a broad Lancashire
dialect. "1 say, Harry, did thou hoar
that row going on upstalrfl?" "Aye!"
replied Harry; "1 heard somebody a-
Blnglng." "Well," said tho other, "she
wore In tho room next to mine and I
beat upon the door, and told her to
shut up, for I wanted to take a nap."
"Oh!" said Harry In amazement, "did
thou know who that were? That were
Clara Butt!" "Well!" said the other,
"I don't care who it were; she'd no
business to be shoutin' and 'ollerin'
when I wanted to go to sleep." As I
heard the man speaking I thought,
"Alas! for the chivalry of my ancestral country!"—(From Blspham's Autobiography, "A Quaker Singer's Recollections.")
Patrons of the Ilo-llo arc assured of
a banner enterntinnient next Wednesday evening, for William Russell,
"Flying A" star, will be there ln a
bully new production called "A Sporting Chance."
While Russell, as the hero, and some
of the other folks who figure in this
absorbing story, took sporting chances,
no one who goes to see the picture will
be running any risk of not getting
their money's worth twenty times over.
"A Sporting Chance" is a bona fide
thriller, from first reel to fifth.
"Big Bill" Is drawn into a series of
amazing adventures, absorbing ln their
interest, full of thrills and hair-raising
exploits, mysterious and myslfying,
with touches of delightful romance.
THE HIDDEN CHART
Wednesday at the Ilo-llo.
Hardwick's activities in endeavoring
to ascertain the identity of the Terror
of the Range, leader of the gang of
Midnight Marauders, soon aroused the
attention of the gang and one evening
he found a note pinned to his bunk in
the sleeping quarters of the cowboys.
The note read:
"To the Easterner;
If you are still here at midnight
you will never see the sun rise."
Hardwick, of course, is not the sort
to be frightened by such a note and he
laughs as he shows it to the rest of the
cowboys and allows that he will stick
around that evening and perhaps have
a chat with the Terror. Meanwhile,
another factor in the situation is developing. Not far from the Martin
ranch In a den iu the mountains lurks
a band of Mexican bandits herded by
Miguel, a crafty brigand. His sweetheart, Carmencln, is of the flirtatious
type aud her attentions to Francesco,
.Miguel's lieutenant, precipitates a battle between the two Mexicans which
results in a knife duel. Francesco,
after a terrific fight, kills Miguel and
leaping on a horse flees from the infuriated Mexicans who are angered at
the death of their leader.
Now, Thelma has made a discovery.
She has always wondered why Nor-
dyke, thc old paralytic, sits and gazes
at the portrait of her mother, so she
examines the portrait closely and finally begins to dust it off. While doing
this she accidentally knocks It to the
floor. As she lifts It up to replace it
the buck tears away and reveals a
small tin box concealed between the
painting and thc backing. She draws
It forth and llnris a map and route and
some other papers. While she Is looking at it tile wandering Francesco, who
Is lurking about the ranch, looks J
through the window und notes that
Thelma has the papers which ho knows
reveal the way to great wealth. He
immediately returns to the band with
the news and Is immediately forgiven
for the murder of Miguel since the recovery of thc map wlll muke all tho
gang rich.
The Mexicans go to the ranch to got
the map and arrive just as a terrific
battle Is going on between the Terror
and his men and the ranch cowboys,
as the raiders had descended upon the
ranch to fulfill their promise to kill
Hardwick. The gang are driven off
biit during the melee Francesco captures Thelma and files with her across
bis saddle. Hardwick is the only one
who notes the abduction and gives pursuit alone. He follows Francesco so
closely that the Mexican finally drops
the girl ln order to get away safely
and Hardwick returns with her to the
ranch. Her father questions her closely
on her return and asks her if Bhe has
anything of value that might have
caused the Mexican to kidnap her. For
some unknown reason she has decided
to keep the fact that she has the map
a sccrel. So she tells her father that
she has nothing of value tbat she can 1
tell him of. "Thc Terror of the Range"
will be shown at the llo-Ilo on Wed
"BILL HENRY"
In this picture Charles Ray plays
the part of an ambitious country boy
who sets aut to make a fortune selling
electric vibrators for which he has
secured the agency, together with a
book giving all the salesmanship talk
that is a paved way to success.
He tries to demonstrate on a rheumatic old man who ls bo rudely jarred
out of memory of his pain   that   ho    ^	
chases the salesman from his place, i nesdny evening of each week, besides

THE   CUMBERLAND  ISLANDER
May 22, 1&20.
THE CUMBERLAND ISLANDER
Published every Saturday morning at Cumberland, B. C.
EDWARD W. BICKLE Manager and Publisher.
BEN H. GOWEN Editor.
SATURDAY, MAY 22, 1920.
THE MAIL SERVICE
Notwithstanding the fact that Cumberland now
enjoys a daily mail service to and from Victoria,
connecting with a'steamer twice daily between
Vancouver and Nanaimo, we now have fewer mails
than when we only had a tri-weekly train service
with the Capital!
There seems to be an inexcusable delay on the
part of the Dominion authorities in providing the
additional mail service so urgently needed. The
present state of affairs is anything but flattering
to the Postal Branch of the Dominion Government
which must have known several wjeks ago of the
proposed change increasing the train service between Victoria and Courtenay, yet it has so far
failed to provide the additional facilities, in spite
of urgent representations from 1'oards of Trade
and civic bodies.
Whoever is responsible for the anomaly now existing should be made to understand that the
public wants Service—with a capital S. In these
days of modern progress people are rightly impatient of inefficiency and delay on the part of its
servants'—be they of high or low degree—and the
sooner those responsible for this sort of blunder
realize the fact the better for all concerned.
CUMBERLAND "ON THE MAP"
If any citizens of Cumberland failed to realize
tlie importance to this city of the winning of the
Soccer Championship of British Columbia by the
local Football Club, their doubts would have been
quickly dissipated had they attended the largi
gathering on Thursday evening in the Ilo-Ik
Theatre, to do honor to the members and officers
of the Cumberland United Football Club on winning the championship and putting this city "on
the map."
Tiie Islander congratulates the local club, nol
only on the very creditable performance of winning
the coveted McBride Shield and Cup, but also,
wliieh is equally, if not more, important, on the
sportsmanlike manner in which they conduct
themselves on the athletic field.
Their victory should be of inestimable value to
this locality in focusing the eyes of the public
on this magnificent part of British Columbia.
Too many people, it seems, regard this place as
"just a coal mining town," and let it go at that,
overlooking the fact that it has many beautiful
natural attractions and wonders of which the
tourist and pleasure-seeking public are almost
entirely ignorant. Very few places in this part
of Vancouver Island are adequately placed before
the public. It would almost seem as if the residents failed to realize the many attractions to the
tourist right at their doors.
It is up to the local bodies, especially the City
Council and Board of Trade, to keep before the
public the fact that Cumberland and district is
"on the map"—so vividly placed there by the successes of our Soccer footballers—and intends to
remain there. The Islander will do its part—will
you do yours? It's for the good of all.
TOO MANY IMPORTS
"The present condition of Canada's international
/ account calls for drastic reduction in the purchase
by the Canadian people of imported commodities
if disaster is to lie avoided." Thus does Sir John
Willison, President of the Canadian Reconstruction Association, sum up the financial position of
Canada. According to Sir John, the figures published by the Department of Trade and Commerce
showing the trade balance for March and for the
fiscal year ending with March, disclose a highly
unsatisfactory situation.
After giving statistics of Canadian imports and
exports, Sir John states that the favorable balance
of exports of Canadian produce over imports oi
merchandise for consumption is the lowest since
1914-15. After taking into consideration obliga-
t ions abroad, thi* President of the Reconstructioi
Association asserts that, on this basis, Canada'.*
exports during March fell short by something like
$7.5,000,000 of paying her current bills.
The exchange situation is not, therefore, surprising, he says, and predicts that unless there be
a sharp reduction of Canadian buying, especially
in the United States, the discount exchange may
increase.
U. S. TRIBUTE TO STEADY ENGLAND
There is no wild excitement in London over the
exchange situation, with the American dollar at
a high premium, says the New York Sun. There
is no programme in London to jack up the pound
sterling against the law of nature. There is no
hallunciation in London as to what will turn the
adverse exchange rate. There is no doubt that it
will turn when the time comes for it to turn
soundly and surely.
Steady old England, tried in a thousand financial
and economic tests, as tried on a thousand battlefields, knows that every day British exports go
up; it is only because they are being brought in to
be manufactured and sold abroad again at very
much higher prices that the imported material
cost. England knows that though she may be
selling part of these exports on credit the date of
settlement draws nearer every day. England
knows that when her ocean freight bills, her interest charges, her dividend returns and her current
trade receipts from abroad have arisen, as they
are rising rapidly, to a higher point than her cur-
runt outgo abroad—England knows that then the
pound sterling will rise, perhaps soar more swiftly
than it fell.
And England, wise old trader, knows that with
the pound sterling down, she can sell more goods
the world over than* this country with the dollar
up. So keeping cool and with an eye always to the
main chance, England, the veteran, imperturably
watches the exchange rates and sells the goods.
Forty wives was part of a legacy left to an
American soldier by a native ruler in the Philippine Islands.
Havana is one of the few cities where the old
custom of going out between the acts at the
theatres is still observed.
The English barber who is on his way to Canada
to "jump" over Niagara Falls in a barrel may experience the closest shave of his life.
In Siberia a winter rainbow sometimes lasts all
day. It is caused by fine particles of snow suspended in the air.
According to an Arizona paper, the Mexicans
are a hardy and spirited race. It tells of one of
the natives who, after drinking a quart of wood
alcohol, resumed his work in the "best" of spirits.
In a Western city seed potatoes are given away
free to persons who will plant them in vacant lots.
Which causes the Vancouver Province to remark
that in some instances it is a temptation to sell the
potatoes and buy the lots.
King George's valet was recently left a legacy
of $50,000 by a new Zealand relative. Added to
what he receives for pressing the royal trousers
on the side, he need not worry about the price of
potatoes or sugar.
Canada is torpedoing the United States with
booze shells off the coast of Detroit. Which is
enough to make every patriotic Detroiter convert
any old kind of a craft into mine sweeper and sally
forth to defend his country to the last drop.—

The projected line of the Canadian National
Railways north of Prince Albert., Sask., has been
located at Paddockwood, thirty miles east from
that point to Birch Bark Lake, about thirty miles
•ast of Paddockwood. The country to be served
by this proposed line is suitable for mixed farming
and there are already a large number of settlers
located.
The Government of Nova Scotia is showing
itself well in the van of progress with regard to
roads. A bill has been introduced in the Legislature authorizing a provincial loan of fifteen million
dollars to extent over five years, the proceeds to
be devoted to the construction of a system of improved highways. A collaterial measure was introduced at the same time enabling the Government to avail itself of the assistance which the
Federal Government is willing to extend to provinces entering on a good roads policy.
The Great War at sea is being fought all over
again before the U. S. naval investigating committee. If it were possible to add to the evidence
that is being adduced some comments from the
lower deck of the Grand Fleet the committee's
work might be proportionately shortened. The
statements of Mr. Daniels, the American Naval
Secretary, creates the impression that it is his
belief the United States won the war at sea.
It canont be said of Vancouver's Mayor that he
is lacking in originality or that he is at a loss to
provide distinguished visitors to the city over
whose destiny he presides with a novel form of
amusement. Enterprising to a degree His Worship consulted with his police force and agreed
upon Chinatown as the arena in which to stage an
example of a raid on a modern gambling den for
the special delectation of Major-General Sir David
Watson, K.C.B., Lady Watson, Miss Watson and
other local dignitaries. But the raid was not in
tended merely as a diversion; its purport was to
demonstrate the extent of the difficulties which
encompass officers of the law in the discharge of
their duty. The dispatch chronicling the event
however, does not indicate whether or not the
Chinese element of the Terminal City will protest
against such a species of capitalization of its
sporting activities.
"Strength and Beauty Are in Hi9 Sanctuary"
One night I travelled over mountainous ways
And feared the menace of Almighty Power;
Ills terrors in the lightnings were ablaze,
Ills crashing thunder made the summits cower-
When o'er my path, from out the dark, there blew,
Making my heart leap up lu sheer delight,
Tlie thrilling scene of roses cooled with dew.
Thy beauty, Lord, is stronger than Thy Might.
—William Allen Wood.
FLIES!
flies breed in filth, feed upon filth and carry disease.
Plies may carry upon body and legs the germs ot typhoid
fever, tuberculosis, pneumonia and many other diseases.
Plies crawl over garbage, wade through sewage and
111th and go swimming In the gutter. These same flies the
next hour crawl over your cake, wade through your soup
and take a bath ln your milk; you eat and drink the dirt
and germs that these Impudent pests wash from their dirty
feet.
A fly In the home Is to be as much feared as a rattlesnake; the rattlesnake gives warning; the fly does his
dirty work quietly.
All food should be carefully screened so that flies cannot crawtover It. *j.J~$ r
Windows should be screened so that flies cannot enter
the home and sow the seeds of disease and death.
Plies are" enemies of babyhood and we should kill files
In order to conserve human lives.
Premises should be kept clean so that files will not And

Garbage palls should be kept covered.
One fly killed early ln the spring will mean several

Enjoyment ceases to be complete when you feel it
is extravagant. '
The certainty that a car conserves your money—that
its every feature renders you the utmost service, is the
most gratifying feeling about it.
That is why more people buy Chevroiets in preference to heavier types that are a burden on the pocket-
book'
The experience of veteran moorists has proven that
the Chevrolet affords you all the feelings essential to
complete enjoyment. t
Pride in its appearance and absolute confidence in its
dependability alone guarantee your peace of mind.
Yet in addition the Chevrolet offers every riding and
driving comfort and equipment convenience.
These things are to be enjoyed equally in a Chevrolet
as in other cars. But in the Chevrolet alone can you
enjoy them at such low cost.
That is the peculiar attraction of the Chevrolet—all
essential features other cars afford, but at lower cost..
Do not entertain any doubts on this score. Give us
an opportunity to show you how and why this is true.

THIS--
The warm weather is here again and with it
has also arrived a consignment of Bestov Eleetrie
Cookers.
These little stoves are the latest thing on the
market, and will save you much discomfort this
summer by allowing you to prepare your meals
without the necessity of lighting your coal stove.
Before purchasing these stoves we considered
the question of price very carefully, and finding
the usual grill stoves way up in price and beyond
the means of'the average housekeeper, we looked
around for something that was serviceable and at
the same time reasonable in price.
We found what we were looking for in the
BESTOV, and are pleased to offer these useful
little appliances to you at the following prices:
Plain finish ..-.  $5.25 each.
Semi-nickle $7.25 each.
Full nickle  $8.25 each.
These different finishes are all equally serviceable, the only difference being in the finish.        '
SEE THEM IN OUR WINDOW.

Estimated  to   Have Advanced
From 12 to 56 Per Cent. Since
Opening of the War
WASHINGTON, May 2l'.—Interest ol
the United States in the race tor the
oil supply of the w.orld. as embodied
ln tiie report of the State Department
submitted by President Wilson to the
Senate, has arisen from the* alramlng
depletion of oil reserves in the United
States. ,
While this country contributed 00
per cent, of the oil supply of the world,
4il per cent, of Its producing wells
have been exhausted and, according to
ollicial estimates, oil reserves remaining in the United States are not expected to last* twenty years.
Ot the reserves In this country foreign interests control but four per
cent., despite the fact that the United
States is the only oil-producing country in which citizens and foreigners
are permitted to participate in oil production on even terms.
Notwithstanding this "-open door"
policy, officials said American Interests are excluded ln Australia, Barba-
does, British East Africa, British
Guinea, Burma, Dutch East Indies,
Egypt, France, Algeria* India, Japan,
Mesopotamia, Palestine, Persia, Trinidad and the United Kingdom.
tn Mexico, which ranks second In
oil production ln the world, and thereby controls the- "balance of power,"
according to official estimates, American concerns hold controlling Interests In 60 per cent, of the producing
fields.
Potential tntertsts of the British,
however, have shown a steady Increase
throughout the world since 1914. At
the beginning ot the war Brltisli control was estimated at only 12 per cent,
while today tbe British Admiralty Is
said to reckon It at 66 per cent.
That the rain which fell on Sunday
ln Victoria was worth $50,000 to the
Btrawberry crop was the estimate
made by officials. In Oordon Head,
Mr. P. McNaughton, secretary of the
Fruit Grower's Association, estimates
that no less than fifty tons of strawberries were added to the season's
yield by that timely showering. Similar reports have been heard from thc
Keatings aud other districts when
the prospects have been brightened to
ilmost the same extent.
Tiie state ot uiifavorablcuess to a
likely harvost had practically reachoi,
i climax when tlie skies Dually con-
lescended to deliver the greatly needed moisture i'or the flowering period.
Herr) (nip Will Slum* .Slirinkugc
So far as the Gordon Head dlstricl
,s concerned, members of thc Straw-
jerry Growers' Association who should
ne 111 close touch with conditions,
state that a short crop ol'_berrle» I.,
Inevitable this year. It iu estimated
.hat thc falling off from last year's
production would be in the neighbor
hood of 25 per cent. This Is attributed
primarily to lack of adei|Unto Irrigation at tlie proper time, botli lust full
and this spring. It Is thought that the
drought of last fall may be much fur-
ihcr reaching than this year's crop
.'or tlie reason that new acreage has'
jeen curtailed greatly because of the
lack of plants. This shortage was due
lo the drying up before the runners
got substantially rooted last fall.

Krupps and Other Firms Are
Busy Making New Types of
Field Artillery.
Hanover, Germany, May 20.—Krupp's
the great armament Iirm at Essen,
were recently discovered still manufacturing 'Wld guns, lu direct contravention of the Peace Treaty. They
had reserved a special plant'for this
purpose and had endeavored to conceal these shops from the eyes of the
Allied inspectors.
It Is believed in some quarters, particularly French, that Krupp's were
manufacturing a new type of field gun
but so far no accurate details can ho
obtained.
Other firms, too, In Western Germany, have been caught manufacturing machine guns and automatic rifles
or concealing war material, and the
task of the Allied oflicers in searching
tlie factories becomes more and more
dllllcult with eacii day In face of the
deception of the Germans.
The Germans try every conceivable
artifice, from the giving of champagne
luncheons to the actual point of blank
lying, to delude the Allies, but their
ingenuity, while exciting the smiling
admiration of the Allied officers, brings
little profit to them.
Under the terms of tho treaty, all
war machinery must be dismantled
and the Germans seek to prove by the
production .of locomotives and even
humble sauce that the same machinery
can be used for the purposes of peace.
The Allies have adopted a policy of
creating as little unemployment as
possible, but the absence of any German goodwill makes difficult thc carrying outxJf this policy.
The. contract has Just been awarded
by Architect Wm. Frederick Gardiner
of Vancouver, for the Foundation Co.,
Ltd., for tlie erection of a handsome
new home at Courtney, B. C, for Mr.
F. C. Brock, manager of the Canadian
Bank ot Commerce there.
Plans for the new dwelling show
that it will he a cosy home of the bungalow type, containing six rooms. It
will be on a concrete foundation with
a full basement and heated by hot air.
The construction is to be strictly mod:
ern throughout. Tlie estimated cost Is
16500. Work on the,dwelling ls to be
started hy the contractors very soon.

When buying an Airedale look for
the following points:
Ears of medium size and heavy, as
known to the fancy. Color, black and
strong tan. Good length of head and
muzzle. Clean cut black saddle Is
desirable. Coat should be hard and
wiry—known to many as cocoanut
matting. Dark grey grizzle ls not a
bad fault. '
Airedales should possess terrier expressions and he full of Hie, ready to
defend himself at all times. Legs well
boned and straight; feet like a cat,,
small and round with good pad. Tall
should be carried erect, but not curled.
Neck of moderate length and thickness,
free from throatinesB. Body, short,
strong and straight. Weight from 40
to 45 pounds.
OLSEN'S CHALLENGE IS
ACCEPTED BY D. BROWN
The Terrible Swede Has Agreed
to Thrown Brown Twice in
An Hour or Forfeit $100
Tho challenge which waB thrown
out by Charley Olsen, tlie Terrible
Swede as he is known ln ringside
circles, to wrestle and throw any man
on Vancouver Island, twice within one
hour or forfeit one hundred dollars,
was not long in being accepted. David
Brown was Johnny-ou-the-Spot, und
promptly signified his Intention of having a try for the century which was
hung up, and the result is that the
two men will meet In the Opera House
at Nanaimo this evening. Preparations
have been made for three good preliminary bouts, so onlookers should get
their money's worth, for Olsen has
certainly Bet himself a task which will
take some accomplishing.
Now that the match has been made
a few particulars about the two men
may not be out of places Olsen got
much of his training from Fred Beel ln
Chicago, with whom he worked for
many years, and in 1912 was selected
to represent the United States at the
Olmpic Games which were held that
year In Sweden. Coming through all
the eliminating bouts' with flying colors, Olsen was left in the finals with
Wainn Ketonen, champion of Sweden.
Por two hours and forty minutes these
two wrestled without either obtaining
a fall, and the match was awarded to
Olsen for his aggressiveness. He thus
became champion of Sweden also. On
the coast he has been working with
such well known performers as Ad
Santell and Strangler Lewis and other
shining lights, and not very long ago
he polished off Tony Bernardl whose
match with Gene l O'Connor  in Van-
C. Bradley's Bulldog "Bramlope Sceptre," of Calgary, Alta.
Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle have
a splendid collection of Airedales.
Norman McConnell of North Vancouver has bred many champions. McLeod
of Capllano has a beauty in Cranbrook.
(Two of the many other good ones are:
F. Knott's Kingston Pat, and C.
Forbes' (Victoria) Caerphilly Queen.
To offset the evil of becoming too
.'riendly with the judge of scheduled
shows, at a North England exhibit a
short time ago no one knew who the
Judge was to be until he entered the
ring. He was chosen by a kennel club
in a neighboring town.
When choosing a Boston terrier
don't take one with a light, wall eye;
or light brindle, all white or very dark,
such as black in coat. He should not
be showing his teeth prominently. He
should be short tn body, have thick
legs and lots of "life." Ears should be
carried erect, nose black; not cream
colored.
If you learn your dog correctly In
puppyhood, it will not be necessary to
whip him later ln life. Never kick a
dog. Punish him with a roll of newspaper and you wlll find that It will
have the desired effect, for this method
ot chastisement not only makes sufficient physical impression, but the
noise of the paper also scares etiquette
into him.
Frank Day, of Vancouver, late of Edmonton, Alta., had a Bulldog he pur
chased from me. Frank Joined up and
went overseas. On his return the dog
took on new life, as she had pined very
much during her owner's absence.
Frank had occasion to go away re
cently for a week and on his return
was Informed that the dog had refused
to eat and died in Ave days. Is there
such a love In the heart of humans as
man's best friend?

couver will long be remembered. He
has also wrestled with Chris Jordan
and Clarence Ecklund, the latter of
whom failed to throw him ln 90
minutes, although he had agreed to
throw him twice in the period.
Dave Brown ls well known to all
Nanaimo followers of the game, for
he has benn wrestling here tor some
years. He learned the game at the
hands of Sine Swanson whose knowledge of it needs no Introduction
here, and he will have the advantage
in his training for this encounter of
of Sine as a working partner. Some
years ago, when Walker was commencing his career as a wrestler, Dave
Brown met him and beat him, and
since that time he too has met and
held his own with Ecklund, while
only recently he was able to wrestle
Swanson to a draw. Like Olsen he
weighs 170 pounds and this Is the
weight they will declare at the ringside.
In Brown, Olsen wlll find a very
tough proposition, and if he is not to
part with his hundred dollars he will
have to be a much better man than he
is given credit for being.

OVERSTOCKED.
Tlie Baseball Magnate: "What do
you think of the idea of numbering the
players on the score card and having
them wear corresponding numbers on
their shoulder blades so the fans can
Identify thorn?"
The Manager: "I'm against it. We've
j got enough back numbers on the team
uow,"
A veteran ring follower recently tol
Fred Keats, the sporting writer, tha
the hardest blow her ever saw was tht
one with which Jack Dempsey score*-
the first knockdown over Willard ai
Toledo.
One of the hardest blows delivered
in a local ring during the life of the
Frawley law came from Wlllard's flat
It was a straight right and It landed
on the jaw of the husky Soldier
Kearns. Kearns, who was built along
the lines of a professional strong man,
wns not much of a fighter, but he was
extremely rugged and he could take all
kinds of punishment until Willard
landed on his chin. The blow made a
glass Jawed fighter out of one of the
toughest men In the ring.
Willard Got Sore.
Landing that punch ruined Kearns
and made Willard. ln previous bouts
the big fellow had stalled along with
a grin on his face aud the fans,concluded he was too good-natured to be
a success ln the ring. Until W'Bard
got sore about something he was slow
and lazy in his actions, but when he
lost his temper he could display a
brand of speed that was astonishing.
Patsy Kline, the Newark featherweight, landed the hardest left delivered by a little man when he put Joe
Goster to sleep in a bout that took
place in a Bowery club several years
ago. Kline's left was his better hand.
He could hit harder with it than his
right, although he stood with it extended unlike most left-handers.  -
Coster was a fast, clever little fellow
and he was having the better of it on
points when he grew reckless and was
drawn Into a mixup. Kline left fly his
left hook and it landed squarely on the
angle of the Jaw. Coster was knocked
cold., that he fell flat on his face without breaking the fall. It was several
minutes before his seconds could restore him to life. As soon as he came
to he began to swing his arms, thinking that he was still mixing it up with
Kline, who had long since left the
ring.
McCoy's Lucky Swing.
The upward swinging left with
which AI McCoy knocked out George
Chip and won the middleweight championship was a terrific wallop. McCoy
was not a noted hitter by any means,
but this time he happened to time the
blow Just right. It caught Chip under
the chin as he was coming in, and it
spun him around ln tbe air until the
first thing that hit the canvas was the
back of his head.
This was the most unexpected
knockout that ever ended a championship bout. A moment before he landed the winning blow, McCoy was running for his life. Chip waB the picture
of confidence, and was so sure of himself that he never took the slightest
trouble to protect himself. McCoy let
the wallop fly in sheer desperation.
He had no idea that the result would
be so startling. In tact, McCoy was
the most surprised man ln the house
when he saw his opponent on the floor
taking the count-
Jack Dillon, the "giant killer," landed a mighty wallop ln the same ring
where McCoy won the middleweight
title. Big Tom Cowler had an advantage of a foot on htm ln height and
many pounds of weight ln his favor.
Tom had a fairly good straight left,
and he was landing it with marked
success when Dillon suddenly crossed
him with a right. Cowler collapsed
like a load of snow falling off a roof.

KENNEL NEWS—Continued
A Well Known Judge
Mr. Chris. Shottleworth, tlie well
known Judge and manager of Anokia
Kennels, California.
A true ntory of a collie: A young
business man In Pennsylvania, ownc*
of a collie, had occasion to move to
near Los Angeles, California, glvin;;
his dog to a sister, who gave it to a
friend. That dog Just pined and refused food from the day he left. He
knew—the heart that beats true and
faithful, he met all streetcars from
early morn to night, as he had formerly met him on his arrivals before.
No notice of anyone would he fake.
He was just able to walk and that's
all. The friend told the sister and
she wired tlle brother, who at once,
as every true fancier would do, took
the first traifi. Arriving nt his homo
town he took the streetcar. Yes, that
dog recognized his whistle at once, for
he met every car, took a leap—one laut
leap—to his master, whom he had
longed for, and then collapsed through
utter weakness. His owner, in tears,
picked him up and carried him to the
sidewalk, where he caressed the poor
collie, with tears rolling down his
cheek, and passers-by sarcastically
passed remarks on his foolishness. He
secured a taxi, took the dog home and
from that very day he commenced to
recover, and as his owner stated, "A
true friend as Gyp will never leave mc
again."
AN OLD WELL-KNOWN FAVORITE
* m.-.
Ch. Trafford Bullacity, now deceased.
The name greyhound appears to have
no reference to the color, but ls derived from the Icelandic "grey," meaning a dog.
Tobacco smoke sickens dogs very
quickly. When forced to inhale much
of it, they vomit or immediately seek
water to cool the irritated respiratory
passages. A sportsman so frightened
his setter by teasing him with a cigarette that the dog declined 'to hunt, or
have anything to do with him for several days. A pool-room proprietor lost
a Pomeranian by keeping him constantly at his place of business. Overfeeding of sweets was said to have
caused this little fellow's death, hut
inhalation of tobacco smoke night and
day, with almost no outdoor air, was
a big contributory cause.
Pointless Draw-
Occurred Again
When Vancouver Longshoremen
Try Conclusions With New
Nanaimo Team.
The first appearance of the team
which the newly formed Nanaimo Foot-
jail Club has got together for thc purpose of taking part in thc series of
inter-city matches which are to he
played Saturday afternoons through-
jut the summer, was a vary creditable
one, and went far to Justify the steps
which have been taken the Nanaimo
footballers.
The Nanaimo team did well to hold
the strong Longshoremen's team down
to n pointless draw, especially when
It is rcmcml.creil that they had quite
as much of the game, and perhaps a
little bit more of It, than the visitors.
Still, as was the case during the two
final games for the McBride Slielld,
the defence had always tlie better of
the attack, and there were but few
occasions during the whole of the
match when either team really looked
like scoring. The shots which tlle
respective goalies were asked to deal
with were none of them anything out
of the ordinary, the hacks on both
sides breaking up all attacks before
they really became dangerous, and
preventing the opposing forwards time
and agaiu from getting into position
for the sending of a stinging shot.
It cannot be said that the game was
either fast or very Interesting from
the spectators' point of view, but It
was at all times clean. Perhaps thc
hot sunshine made the players disinclined for any strenuous and sustained
exertion, but whatever tin- cause it is
certain that tliere were many occasions when a little bit keener following
up might very well liave been productive of a score. However, it was a
friendly fixture, witli no great Issue
at stake, and this, too, probably had
something to do with the lack of
energy which was at times displayed
by both teams.
The game Itself calls for but little
comment. It was of the give and
take variety throughout, the ball travelling from one end to the other of the
field practically the whole time. The
passing, especially on the part of the
local team, was, generally speaking,
good, though too little attention was as
a rule paid to direction, and taken as a
whole ft was of the long style, too long
generally in fact, rather than tho crisp
and short variety.
However, it was a good game and
served its purpose admirably in that
it gavo the selection committee somo
real data to work on. Unfortunately
two of the new men upon whom reliance had been placed were unable
to turn up In time to play, but their
places were admirably filled. As has
been stated, the game ended in a pointless draw, neither side having been
able to scoro when thc final whistle
blew.
The teams lined up as follows:
Nanaimo.
Goal,  Shepherd;   backs,  Linn  and
Murray;   halves,   Davics, Leigh   and
Craig;    forwards,    Hines,     Strange,
Stobbart, McMillan, Bowman.

Social Evening In
Holy Trinity Hall
A social evening was held In Holy
Trinity Parish Hall on Tuesday evening last for the purpose of spending a
farewell evening with Rev. and Mrs.
Comley on the eve of their departure.
Mr. A. McKinnon was in the chair and
he explained the purpose of the gathering.    *
Mrs. Oliver rendered a pianoforte
solo, which was much appreciated,
and Mrs. Tribe contributed a song
which was enthusiastically encored.
Mr. Hassal sang "The End of a Perfect
Day."
The chairman then called on the
Rev. Mr. Comley to Introduce his successor, the Rev. W. Leversedge. Mr.
Leversedge, in replying, pointed out
that he was undertaking a very difficult task in trying to All Mr. Comley's
place for the next six months and
asked for loyalty and sympathy in his
work.
Miss Leslie then sang a solo, which
was~"fencored. Mr. Comley recited,
"Nothing to Wear."
The chairman then asked Dr. Hicks to
voice the sentiments of the city to Mr.
and Mrs. Comley, with special reference to their work during the Spanish
"flu" epidemic.
Dr. Hicks in graphic terms spoke of
the serious nature of the epidemic in
1918 and of the founding of the Cumberland Emergency Hospital, describing in detail how Mrs. Comley had undertaken the training of volunteer
nurses to fight the disease, and also of
her devotion and skill, and spoke also
of the success that rewarded her efforts. Mr. Comley was described as
having ably filled during that time the
position of general assistant wherever
his help was needed. The doctor said
that he was asked by the people of
Cumberland to present to Mr. and Mrs.
Comley a purse of money as good as
gold as a small token of their appreciation if their devotion and unselfish
efforts during that time. He said that
It was the wish of all that their holiday would be beneficial and that they
would both return greatly improved In
health at the end of that time. He
then presented the purse to Mrs.
Comley.
The Rev. Mr. Comley, In replying,
thanked the people for the mark of
appreciation and spoke of the joy that
it had given hiswife and himself to be
able to serve the community in the
dark days. He almost regretted that
the appreciation had taken a tangible
form, but assured all present that the
duty of everyone was to serve in time
of need to the best of their ability.
Mrs. Tribe then contributed another
solo.
The chairman, in his closing remarks, said that Cumberland was fortunate in having men and women of.
tlie calibre of the Comleys and expressed the hope that they would
speedily return.
The remainder of the evening was
spent in dancing, refreshments being
served by the ladies, and a very enjoyable evening was brought to a close
with the singing of "Auld Lang Syne,"
"They Are Jolly Good Fellows" and
Will Ye No Come Back Again?"
Determination
is the first essential element in the production of a good
article. Of course experience, materials and labor, all
of which are procurable on the open market, are absolutely necessary.
But determination is an inherent quality not purchasable, and is the element which governs the quality
of and the degree to which the other elements enter
into the construction of the article.
In other words, Determination governs the quality
of the product.
