making a net profit on the year's operations of $1,447.26.
The hospital had a balance in the

It was announced that the Hospital  a„ |ta n,lam.,aI obligations when due
was short of private rooms and an ad-  w)Uloat naomcea to any overdraft at
ilitional accommodation should be pro
Vlded without delay. To meet the
emergency the annual meeting decided
to appoint Edward Hughes, Charles
O'llrlen and T. W. Scott a committee
to devise ways and means of raising
by popular subscription ten to fifteen
thousand dollars for tiie purpose of
building un additional section lo the
preseni hospital which would provide
twelve to fifteen private rooms and
relieve the present demand. The
hospital at present is taxed to Its utmost capacity and applicants for private accommodation are turned away.
The President's Report:
To the Subscribers to the Cumberland
General  Hospital:--
Oentleraon:—
I beg to submit the Annual Report
of the Cumberland General Hospital
for the year ending March 31st. 1921.
Statistics
In hospital April 1st, 1923    24
Admitted during the year  330
Dicharged during thc year  328

There has been a marked decrease
lu tiie number of patients days treat-
the bank.
Cost of Operation
The cost of operation per patient
day has Increased from $2.30 for the
preceedlng year to $2.58 for this year.
This is principally due to the big re
duction lit the number of patients
days as the overhead charges I'or administration, nursing, heating, etc.,
very very little, and the cost per patient dny for these services vary according to the number of days treatment.
Equipment
All equipment ls lu excellent condition. No new equipment was added
during the year.
Medical Fund Agreement
The. arrangements between the
Medical Fund and the hospital during
Ihe year have been satisfactory. The
total amount received during the yenr
from tiie Medical Fund was $8,350.00.
A total of 4969 patient days treatment came under this agreement
which figures out at a cost per patient
day of $1.68. 66 per cent of total patient days treatment given by the hospital was 'antler the agreement while
only 40 per cent of the total revenue
was derived from this source.
I would like to point out the very
marked difference between the num-
lier of surgical cases (which are mostly nccldCTital cases) and the number of
Medical cases treated under the agree
ment,  there  being   1900 leas  patient i ment.     The former was only 718 pa-
days than ln the previous year.    The | (Continued on Last Page)

The second concert of the season
of the Cumberland Choral Society, as I
slated by the Courtenay Choral Sod 1
ety, with assisting artists lu Uie per-
sons of Mrs. M. B. Tribe of Courtenay
and Mr. Claud Anstead of Victoria, at-
traoted a good crowd to the Ilo-llo
Theatre on Thursday evening. The
Choral Society, under the able leadership of Mr. C. W. Slllence, of Royston, havo Improved 100 per cent since
their last concert and the offering of
"Hiawatha's Wedding Feast" with f
various other choruses on this oc-
eusion, was a source of great grati-
flcaUon to the many friends of the
Choral Society .
"Song of Greeting" by Wooler was j
the opening chorus and all the offer-1
Ings of the choir uuUl Uie final "The
Long Day Closes" by Sullivan were |
exceptionally    well    rendered.     The
Volga Boat Song, sung by special re-'
quest, brought forth a well merited
encore,   the   choir   responding  with
"Cameron's Marching Men."     A greal
deal of very' favorable comment was
heard  ln   the most  excellent  choir
rendering of "Oh Italia, Italia. Belov-
ed," by Donizetti.     This, to a large '
number of Uie    audience    woe    Uie
horns' best offering. Coleridge-Taylor's "Hiawatha's Wedding Feast" is
most difficult  rendering,  but    the
choir sang this with perfect unison.,
the solo being taken by Mr. Anstead
who was magnificent.      Mr. Anstead '
is a pupil of  Mr.  Gideon  Hicks, of
Victoria and la a perfect lyric tenor.!
He pleased Uie audience vastly with I
his various offerings,     We liked him
best In the solo In "Hiawatha's Wed-:
ding Feast." "Mary of Argyle" and "If
With all  Your Hearts.''      More will
be heard of Mr. Anstead ln the very
near future.     He is Canada's comin ij
tenor.
The well-known local artist, Mrs.
M. B. Tribe, a perfect type of Soprano
was iu splendid voice, her rendering
of "In Uitos Land" and "Bird upon the
Branch Alighting," being delightful
meriting a well deserved applause.
.Mrs. Clifford Warn of Victoria, was
a most excellent accompanist for Mr,
Anstead,   whilst   Mr,   J.   R.   Denholm

Wednesdays game was Cumberland's from the beginning. Their
opponents were not In good shape and
consequently were easily outclassed
Turner got Uie (Irst goal in the lirst
half from a cross by Bannerman and
the five remaining goals came thick
and fast in the second hnlf. Deltioa
got one, Bannerman got two, Graham
took one nnd Turner took another.
Cumberland was awarded a penalty
for a minor foul and Conti, to show
his sportsmanship, shot n soft one
Into thc goalie's arms. Tbe Vets

KEYNOTE OF
MOOSE DANCE
A suprlsingly large crowd was present at Uie Annual Moose Carnival that
was held In the llo-Ilo Hall last West
nesday night. Happiness was tin
dominant note In thc spirits of every
one present, but no wonder, for th.
Moose hnve gained the reputation of
being the premier entertainers, and
Wednesday night was nn exception
The hall was profusely decorated
with long flowing streamers from
which dangled vaii-colored balloons
and paper decorations. Almost all
the dancers wore paper bats and
masks and assisted (?) the orchestra
with the croa.klng of Un frogs that
were given out nl the door. The real
novelty of Uie evening came at IL'
o'clock when confetti and serpentine
were handed around and before many
minutes lhe dancers were a colored
mass lied up in miles of paper ribbon.
Much to tbe dislike of many the
dance broke up at 2 o'clock, after
what had  been one of tbe most  en
acted In a like capacity for Mrs. Tribe,
Mrs. L, H. Finch was faultless at tho
piano for the chorus offerings.
We congratulate Mr. C. W. Slllence
on the efforts of his choir and we look
forward with pleasure to Uie next
concert of these combined choirs.

the men who risk their lives with tho
deep sea fishing llteU off the New I
England coaat, is pictured iu "Women !
Who Give," the Louis B. Mayor-Metro \

Robert Frazer, who plays the lead
ing male role, with a helper tn a frail
dory, battled for hours with a huge
swordflfih, The dangerous monster
of the deep was harpooned and then
the tight began. After some two
hours or more Frazer finally was able
to plunge a gaff Into Uie heart of the
swordflah and thus end a battle that
for a time seemed certain to end with
loss of life.
This   exciting    scene,   and    many
others equally thrilling, ls to be seen
in   "Women   Who  Cive,"   an   adaptation   of   Sarah   1*.   McLean   Oreeiio'a

Local fans were Heated to a good
game of baseball last Sunday when
Cumberland met Courtenay ou the
Recreation Grounds in an exhibition
try out and won by the score of 2-0.
"Topta" Plump and Bob Robertson
were responsible for the runs. Dave
Hunden pitched a shut out gaiue i'or
tlve innings when he was taken out
to give the new pitcher, Maclntyre, a
tryo-ut, the latter holding Courtenny
scoreless for the remainder of the
game. He had nice style, hut ho
wasn't in the game long enough to
show his real worth. Bill Boyd and
"Lefty" Barbhouse hurled for Courtenay.

School Concert
Is Popular One
A concert that ls causing quite a
bit of comment among the people of
the district Is that which ls being presented by the children of the Cumber'"
laud Public Schools at various points
in support of their May Queen Can-
Mi,late, Miss Fanny Strachan. This
concert was presented at Headquarters two weeks ago and at Union Bay
lost Friday night where It met with
such an ovation that has never been
accorded anything of IU kind before.
Probably the reason for this reception, aside from the merits of the program Itself, ls because the entire per-
forniance Is given by the children
themselves, many of whom are only
tiny tots but who act their parts to
perfection. The boys' baud accompany tbe concert and adds greatly to
its enjoyment. So popular was the
performance vslth the Union Hay and
Headquarter folk that Miss Strnchan's
campaign managers wlll In all probability present II In Cumberland and

GOD'S ORCHESTRA
As tbe raya of the rising sun glint
the East and the lirst streaks of dawn
bring out the trees and shrubs from
the dewy shadows of the long nighl.
the great handsiuaster of tlle Universe
taps his music stand and the instrumentalists of God's orchestra can be
heard tuning up. In the distance
chanticleer raises his note from the
top of a hay stack, to be answered
by tlle deep-throated gobble ot a turkey. Close to the bedroom window
a robin runs the scale upon his flute
and in a few moments the grand anthem swells and the day Is begun.
How different la the awakening in
tbe dull drab city, where the milkman's tart rattling over the cobble
atones takes the place ot the birds
symphony we hear In the country.
The day may promise a period of
work and care, a meeting of problems as great as any that face the
dweller in the big town, but at least
we awaken to a message of hope. It
It difficult to feel downcast and sad
with the buoyant bird song lining the
sweet morning air.
And the daily symphony by God's
orchestra is but one of tlle joys of living in the country. There is no
place In the world where life is more
enjoyable, where there is more real
comfort, peace and contentment than
In living in a beautiful countryside
home conveniently located near .i
good, clean thriving town.
One great authority on industrial
and financial conditions says the
next seven years will witness a tremendous exodus from the great cities,
back to the country and thc small
town. The stream has been pouring
away from the rural districts until
the burden of support has become too
great. Now the pendulum must swing
thc other way, the grim tenements of
the city must send its denizens back
to tho great out-of-doors to dig its
sustenance out ot the soil. God's orchestra waits to peal forth an anthem
of welcome.
big man should be some good woman
that knows how to cook and will
cook.
Once upon a time the girl that could
fry chicken, make biscuits and was
willing to wash dishes iu a tin pan
was thc girl who got the buggy rides.
Today, the girl that fox-trots is fed
at the country club and gets tho violets.
But the girls are not to blame. As
long as the youth of the land are satisfied with dolls, flappers and empty-
headed models for style shows, that
Is what they wlll get.
It used to be said tliat the way to a
sensible man's heart was through his

a successful man's purse is through
perfume, bobbed-hair, Hhort Bklrts
and low necks. The papers are tilled
with the snd tales of old fools divorcing the wives who helped them iu thc
days of struggle in order that they
may waste their hard-earned savings
on a movie actress or a "rag and a
bone and a hank of hair."
As soon as the men get some sense
and go looking for cooks instead of
coquettes, for mothers for their children instead of baby dolls to play with,
we'll get back to a safe and sane basis.
Less than three per cent, of our
high schools teach girls to cook. The
balance of the education ls elocution,
painting and commercial training.
Where one girl Is learning to make

wasting their time on bridge and Mah

WHY THE DIFFERENCE?
"1 sec no reason why white people
in British Columbia should have to
pay $3.80 per ton more freight rates
on grain Imported for domestic use
than ts paid on grain shipped through
British Columbia ports for the consumption of Orientals." states Premier
Oliver. He shows that while there
was a reduction of 17 per cent. In
this connection lu 1922, still lt costs
19 cents per hundred more to bring
grain Into British Columbia from the
prairies for domestic use than it
costs to ship grain for export.

RECORD HANDLING OF FISH
A record for loading and handling of
fish was established by the Canndiuu
National Railways last week, when
thirteen cars of fish were unloaded off
trawlers at Prince Rupert at 7.25 p.m.
April 23 and arrived in Winnipeg at
9 a.m. April 26. The fish were consigned to Winnipeg, Duluth and Chicago, the time being occupied in the
run from Prince Rupert to Duluth be
ing 80 hours and from the seaboard
to Chicago 101 hours and live minutes.
This time is 21 hours ahead of the
fastest time ever made previously, according to Canadian National Express
officials.

Those magic boots of old—the seven-league boots
—were the work of an imaginative mind. Who could
ever expect to walk seven leagues in a single step ?
The story of the seven-league boots was written in the days long before the present time with
its great possibilities. These days there is no need
for such wonderful steppers. There is the telephone.
It is no effort now to talk a hundred times seven leagues. The world is virtually at one's door. This age
of wonderment is based, too, on imagination, but it is
imagination plus practical experiment and great development.

THE SITUATION RE
JAPANESE IMMIGRATION
BY   A.   H.   NKII.L
Member for Coiuox.AlbenU
In ID11S what has been called a
Gentleman's Agreement was entered
into between Canada and Japan, by
which Japan was supposed to restrict
her immigration herself, as she claimed it hurt her pride to have us put restriction on their entrance Into Canada. They agreed to restrict Immigration to four classes: —
1. Immigrants having previously
resided in Cnnadn, and the wives aud
children of such  immigrants.
2. Immigrants engaged by Japan.
ese residents for bona fide personal
or domestic service.
'.'.. Immigrants coming to work under contract.
■I. Immigrants brought in under
contract   by  Japanese  resident  agri
cultural holders in Canada, at the
rate of from five to ten laborers per
hundred acres.
They further agreed that those coming In under Clause (3) must have the
approval of the Canadian Government.
They further said with reference tc
domestic   and   agricultural   laborers,
they did not contemplate bringing in
more than four    hundred    annually.
The  terms  of  this  agreement  were
' never  properly  published,    and    the
j general impression was left with the
public tliat the total immigration of
■ Japanese   was   limited   to  four  nun-
| dred per annum of all classes, but It
I is not so, because the restriction to
four hundred only concerns domestic
and   agricultural    laborers.       It   is
1 claimed  that  this    Agreement    was
rigidly adhered to, but our Immigration retums since the Agreement has
| been in force, show that eleven hundred and thirty-nine farmers, 145 mechanics, 484 clerks, and 8 miners came
In, aud 737 not classified. These
were all ninles. There were nlso a
large number of women and children
came In under the second sentence of
Clause (1), thus, in 1919 there was a
total of 1178 Japanese entered Canada for the first time, Our censuj
returns show that, since the Gentle-
; man's Agreement came Into force, the
i Japanese population In Canada has In-
I creased over 100 per cent. Part of
i this of course, is due to the number of
' Japanese children born here, largely
' due to the number of women allowed
in under Clause (I) above.
In 1910 an Immigration Act was
passed, Section 38 ot which gave the
Minister power to prohibit the landing
in Canada of immigrants belonging
to any race deemed uiisulted to the
climate or the requirementte of Can.
ada. That Section gave us power to
exclude Japanese or any similar
class of immigrants, but we did nol
make use of it. That Section was
repealed in 1919, and was replaced by

a much stronger one, Section 13 which f
also gives power to the Minister to reject immigrants who. In his opinion,
are undesirable from their probable
Inability to become readily assimilated.
In 1913 we piussed an Act adopUng
•a Treaty of Trade and Commerce
which had been entered into between
Great Britain and Japan. It was devoted almost entirely to trade ami
shipping matters, but contained a
clause which allowed the nationals of
either race lo live and trade In thc
country of the other contracting party.
Now, the Act by which we adopted
that Treaty contained a clause which
said thot nothing In the Treaty should
| be held to repeal or effect the provisions of our Immigration Law. Therefore there is nothing in the Treaty
which would prevent us excluding
Japanese or any other race by regulations made under our Immigration
Act. Our only obstacle is (he vague
Gentleman's Agreement.
Negotiations entered into last year
between the present Government ol
Canada and the Japanese Government
have resulted ill a modification of the
Gentleman's Agreement to the extent
that the immigration under the two
specified classes ls now restricted,
not to 400 a year, but 150 per annum,
hut the other Sections allowing others
in, praticularly women and children,
nre still untouched.
The United States has sustained a
law passed by California forbidding
Orientals to hold agricultural land,
which has resulted in turning loose,
so to speak, of something like 50,000
Japanese from that State. The United
States Government has just cancelled
the Gentleman's Agreement which
they also had with Japan, and enacted
a clause in their Immigration Act
which practically excludes Japanese
Immigration. These two facts will
tend to set the tide of Japanese Iin
migration more strongly towards Can
ada. It is a fact that the numbers
coming In since the amendment to the
Gentleman's Agreement by the present Government have been smaller
than before, but opportunity still exists under the terms ot the Agreement
that this might be increased to quite
a large number, especially of women
and children, which is undesirable.
Our remedy is plain; we should fallow the example of the States and
abandon thc Gentleman's Agreement
-we could then under our Immigration Act make regulations to exclude
them, either entirely, or limit their
annual Immigration to a small fixed
number, which would include every
class of Japanese Immigration and
prevent the possibility of wide spread
evasion. The talk of Japan objecting to our excluding her naUona'.s
because she is a proud nation is absolutely nonsense. We object to
Asiatic Immigration because we do
not wish to subject ortjr Canadian
men, and particularly our Canadian
women, to the economic competition
of people with a much lower standard
of living, and the Japanese themselves
for the very satme reason restricted
Immigration into Japan of Chinese,
and even Koreans, who are their own
subjects. It is not Japan's pride that
is hurt by our contemplated restriction but her ambition thnt is baulked; the ambition to obtain a foothold
on the North American Continent for
her enormous surplus population. II
Is Ln the best interests for the maintenance of friendly relations in the
future between this country and Japan
that she should be made to understand
now that she must seek some other
outlet for her population, and If told
so plainly now. it will give her an opportunity to Beek an outlet In some
country where they might be welcome, Even tn the excitement caused In Japan by the recent action of
Uie United States, Japan has admitted that America Ib perfectly right in
regulating her Immigration, and Canada surely has on equal right ln that
respect; it has not been denied to
Africa, Australia, and New Zealand,
and why to us?
Tinkering   with   the   Gentleman's
Agreement is not the solution; an international agreement based on Buch
vague and Indefinite terms is bound
| eventually to lead    to   dispute    and
trouble.     There is only one real solution, cancel Uie Gentleman's Agreement.,  regain   the power to  regulate
our own immigration and control it
In such a way as to realize our am-
; bition of all those who have studied
I the  subject,  to  create  in  Canada  a
j White Canadian   citizenship,   and   a
j citizenship  which shall    be    wholly
i white and wholly Canadian.

SNAKES AND BIRDS
COURTENAY,—'Tis said that a certain species of snake kills small birds.
'Tis known that snakes follow swallows—that is to say, too many swallows. Snakes are sneaks, most
sneaks arc snakes —and many a bird
would rather have the snakes than be
one. It Is reputed that more birds
get snakes than vice versa. Snakes
hnve u great charm for some birds.
Owls und night hawks are most susceptible to the sting of snakes. More
people are bitten by (Fire) water
snakes than by any other species.
These reptiles must be "cured" not
i "killed." Au ordinary snake may be
1 killed by picking him up by the tail
j and snapping Ills head off, but sonic
1 birds see so many snakes at once it
' Is hard for them to catch Uie tail of
an/ particular one. Then they're
j stung.

'TO SMOKE OP NOT TO SMOKE'
'T'HAT is the question which has
* been causing deep thought and
raising piles oi' reports and correspondence among Canadian Pacific
officials who have to do with the
operation <>.' observation cars on
Trans-Continental trains during ihe
lasl few months, At various times
previous to tho war, smoking in
these cars was permitted, sometimes
only for clgurs and cigarettes and
then Hg:.in even for the odorous pipe
Itself. During the war smoking was
a luxurj which many were willing
to forego, and the nb.vrvatiou cars
were free from tolincco, hut after
the war the demand for permission
11 smoke In I lose favored precincts
; -leased to a lloth'CU lie degree, the
requests coming nol only From men
hu: from ladles, as the cigarette
habit has undoubtedly grown among
the fair sex. Tiie pressure of this
public opinion became so pronounced
[hat it was decided tt* experiment
once mure and to allow smoking in
this part oj' the train, although it
was admitted thut the trains carrying such cars had nlso sleeping car*
each with its smoking compartment.
Public opinion, however, is a fickle
thing, and lhe demand has grown
to exclude ttie human volcanoes
from these cars. Some of those who
originally urged the granting of the
permission arc now requesting its
withdrawal, evidently finding that
the practise is not quUe so delightful as the theory of perfect freedom.
In its desire to give the greatest
satisfaction to as many as possible,
ihe Canadian Pacific has therefore
decided tn conclude the experiment
for the time being and, commencing
April 15th. to request the smokers
to enjoy the society of Lady Nicotine in the smoking compartments

COURTENAY,—One of the most interesting ceremonies that has  taken
place   since  the organization  of  the
Hoy Scout movement In Courtenay was
that which was witnessed on Tuesday
j'ulght  ut  the  Scout  Hall.      Twenty
I bo.,n.  members  of  the  various   Cub
J patrols, presented themselves for en-
j rolment aud   swearing   In   by   Cub-
! master Urosseau, who was ably asslst-
1 wl  by   his  deputy, Harry  McQuillan.
j The boys formed a, circle, and as each
j one advanced to the centre and slood
! before the ollleer ln charge, he de-
I posited his cap on the floor, and as his
I companions   st^od   at:   attention,   re-
I peated Uie oath each cub takes on be-
j ing sworn In.     At the conclusion of
j this ceremony. Assistant Scoutmaster
j II. V, Collins, talked to Ihe boys for u
j few minutes, emphasizing to tbein the
j Idea of carrying out tile part of their
[ oath which requires them to do a good
j lurn  for somebody every  day.      lie
j told them It was not necessary to go
away from home to do this, but that a
beginning could be made every morning before they went to school.     The
best thing a boy could do was something for  his own parents,  such  as
getting fie kindling for thc houseflre
a id any other little chore.     He ail-
mo ilshed them to stand true to their
oati: nud wished them every' success.
Mr. Collir    announced that preparations wero going ahead for the Scout
camp and Ihat he had arranged for
tents, the camp to be held in July,
with possibly two or three days under
canvas at their grounds, Courtenay,
before going Into camp In the woods.
Then  the  boys enjoyed  some games
and enjoyed a half hour In this way
before dispersing.
While this was going on in the main
hall. Mr. Benson, district forest ranger, was delivering his second address
to the Scouts ln the. lecture room.
This was the second of the series on
forest protection and forest products.
The boyB are taking a keen Interest
in this subject and no doubt some very
interesting essays wlll be submitted
to the examiners.

$50,000,000
LUMBERMEN    PAY    HUGE
PROPORTION OF WAGES
INB.C.
Sum    Exceeds    Provincial    Revenue
For Last Three Year*
The payroll of the combined British
Columbia timber industries is not
less limn $50,000,000 or close on one
hundred dollars per capita of tha
whole population of the province's
men women and children.
This enormous annual amount represents the total revenue for the last
three years, that ls to say it cost
lesB to run the province for three
years than is does the B.C. lumbering
Industry for 12 months. This sum
also exceeds the total paid up capital
of the three principal chartered banks
hi thc Domnlon of Canada.
Over .'1.BIMI Firms
This estimate is not a rough anil
ready one. bul Is carefully calculated
from the latest statistics made available by the Workmen s Compensation
Board, the Department of Labor, Victoria, and the Dominion Bureau of Statistics.
There are over 3,600 firms exclusively engaged in the production,
manufacturing and handling of B.C.
wood products. They may be divided into three classes:
Class 1 (Raw raiueiial)— 2,653
llnus. includes logging operations,
pole, post and tie enmps, timber
cruisers and forest engineers, scalers, Inspectors and Umber broekrs.
Class 2 (.Manufacture) — 555 Arms,
includes sawmills, planing, lath and
shingle mills, venees plants, siush and
door factories and concerns manufacturing B.C. woods Into furniture.
Cluss 3 (Distribution) — 413 tlrms,
Includes lumber exporters, wholesalers, lumber dealers, accountants, Inspectors and  woodyards.
There is also a fourth clnss. which
might comprise the tug-boat owners
solely engaged 111 boom and raft towing an dthe Arms exclusively manufacturing logging nnd sawmill equipment. (This class is not included In
the present estimate).
Fifty million dollurs Is u huge sum."
It represents at least one-third of Iho
total Industrial payroll of lhe Prj-
vince of British Columbia und at a
conservative estimate proves the
means of support for at least a quart-
er of its total population,

tlonlng for ten months. It has been
supported by voluntary contributions
of smull amounts from the Women's
Institutes of British Columbia.
Following the inauguration of this
work active measures were taken to
afford relief to some of the cases of
which, unfortunately, there aro so
many In British Columbia.
The success of the work has been
very gratifying indeed and up to the
preseni time some 16 cases have been
treated, cures effected, and others are
still under treatment and are making
splendid progress towards recovery
In February, 1924. the Honorable
Dr. J. D, MacLean, Provincial Secretary, received a communication from
Ills Honor the Lieutenant-Governor,
advising that n certain sum of money
was available for distribution to
Children's Hospitals in Canada,
This money was the profits placed
at the disposal of Their Majesties,
the King and Queen, by the Oruina-
phone_ Company who had charge of|
the work in connection with Their
Majesties' address to the children of
the elementary schools of the Empire
on the 34th of May last.
Their Majesties decided that these
profits should be distributed to Children's Hospitals and children's wards
of general hospitals, and that a large
sum should be given to a few Institutions rather than a small amount
to a greater number.
The amount allotted for distribution iu Canada was £800 and It was
decided that the best way to carry
this out waB for the Government of
each province to recommend one such
children's hospital or ward to share
ln the benelils of this fund.
In reply to this request of His
Honor, the Lieutenant-Governor, the
Honorable J. D. MacLean, suggested
for consideration that such an amount
aa might lie allocated to British Columbia should be given for distribution
under the Provincial Secretary's Department, to the fund for crippled
children.
Dr. MacLean recognized the self-
denying efforts that were being made
by the Women's Institutes in undertaking to carry out so successfully
such a henetlclent work and felt he
was justified in making the recommendation he did as a recognition of
these splendid efforts,
The Women's Institutes have Identified themselves with the henlth program nf the Government and have
been of very material assistance ln
the support they have given to the
Public Health  Nurse program.
That they should have voluntarily
added to this work the caro of crippled
children In l»r. MacLean's opinion
merited recognition, and later ou when
a cheque wos received for the amount
Iu addition to the above amount of
$432.59 there haa been received by
way of contributions from the Institutes for this year the sum or $663.75
in monthly payments, January $60.00.
February $228.75, .March $275.00.
Some of the Institutes nre making
monthly payments and it is very encouraging to note that the Inerest in
the movement Is extending to oilier
organizations.
The Parent-Teachers' Association
have expressed approval of the work
and are showing their approval lu the
very practical way of contributing.
While the expenditures ao far have
been made towards the treatment of
cases yet the primary object ot build
Ing an orthopaedic hospital is not lost
sight of. The sum of One Thousand
Dollars has been set aside as a nucleus for the building fund.
Negotiations are under way for a
site. An offer of tlve acres at a rental of $1,00 per year, payment to be
made for the property during or at
the end of twenty years at the price
which may be agreed on now.
The work undertaken by the Institutes contain In itself an unspoken
appeal to the underlying sympathy towards a cripple and is trying to voice
In a practical manner the efforts to
relieve the deformity and pain that
condemns the patient to a life nf
misery.
The Women's Institutes arc doing
splendid work for the "home and
country" but there has not yet been
any  work   that  ha:
The government registrar ot joint
stock companies gives out the gratifying information thut during last
week twenty-eight new companies

have been numerous for months, an
indication of the steady industrial
growth being made.

that the output for 1923 has only been

1918, when the figure was $41,782,000.

The Electro Automate is an Electric Lamp made in France without a battery or refills, and of a new conception. It is a perfect
machine; the result of year* of test ln the plants of the manufacturers In Switzerland and France :: This marvellous little
pocket lamp, embodying simplicity, reliability and compactness,
weighs only 12 ounces.     It Is patented In all countries.
The dynamo, with permanent magnet, based on new methods,
gives dense magnetic fields of perfect concentration, which surrounds the Induction without loss ot magnetic dispersion, anil
permits the maximum exploitation of the energy.
Construction of these lamps Is very carefully carried out hy
skilled Swiss clock and scieutltlc Instrument makers :: Electro
Automate Lamps are tight and dust-proof. They can be used
iu all climates, including equatorial regions. They will everywhere render the utmost service, giving a clear white light, without fear of the bulb burning out or the generator booming
warm.
All Electro Automate Lamps are guaranteed tor six months, conditionally that they are not tampered with. With reasonable
care they will last for years. Any part can he renewed at slight
cost.    Lamps are provided with a pocket for extra bulbs.
This lamp is especially useful to travellers, tourists, marine and
mining engineers, automobllists, dairymen, in fact everybody.
They are indispensable on life-boats and rafts, where a light is
needed that will not be extinguished by wind or wave :: Ever.
mine should be provided with one or more of these lamps at Its
portal or entrance, for the convenience ot the employee or oflicial
whose work takes him ln and out of the mine at irregular Intervals. It Is the cheapest and best light on the market for this
purpose :: Marine engineers welcome Electro Automate ln their
engine room. It saves them from the annoyance and loss of
time occasioned by tha unreliability of battery lamps when they
wish to locate trouble or find something tn a hurry :: Pilots are
favorable to these little lamps because they are always standing
by ready and able to do-their part In any and all kinds of
weather. They are hardy little fellows and will stand any
amount of knocking about, even to the bulbs, which are superior
to any others on the market: l Mushers over the northern trails
take these lamps ln preference to others, because they give a
never ending light and add less than a pound of weight to their
outfits. The winds can't blow them out and the snow or wet enn
not short circuit them.
DIRECTIONS
The working of this Belt-generating lamp Is very simple. Pull the
lever completely and sharply with the fingers and let go, allowing
It to open fully In order to take another full stroke. Strokes
should be even and sharp for best results. This lamp Is the
only one of Its weight thut will give a perfect light. The hearings ol this lamp should be oiled about once a month.

THE recent announcement that the third triennial
conference on Education and Citizenship to be
held under the auspices of the National Council of
Education will take place In Montreal in 1926 recalls
the invaluable work this organization is performing.
Under the Hnnovary Presidency of His Excellency
tpe Governor-General and the Presidency of Mr. Vincent Massey President of the Massey-Harrli Co.,
Toronto, the Council includes many of Canada's
leading citizens, among them Sir Robert A. Falconer, K.C.M.G., President of the University of
Toronto; Sir Arthur Currie, G.C.M.G, Principal of
McGill University, and Mr. E. W Beatty, President
of the Canadian Pacific Railway. It has aa its principles: (1), That education should concern itself with
the development of charocter and should provide a
full preparation for life) (2), Thut education is a
spiritual process; (3), That education Is imparted by
personality—its success or failure rests with the
teacher; (4), That education is everybody's business;
and (5), Thai Canada's education must be Canadian
in its ideals.
The principal activities of the Council are twofold The National Lectureship Scheme is • plan
under which distinguished men and women—both
Canadians and visitors from Great Britain and other
countries—are engaged to speak on education (broadly
interpreted) throughout Canada The Bureau pro
rides an organization for the exchange of information
between thc Provincial departments of education, for
the reception and diffusion of Ideas from outside the
Dominion and foi dispensing data concerning education jn Canada to the outside world Until the Council
established this bureau, Canadian educational authorities were dependent upon the American Bureau of
Education at Washington for all (durational infor
mation.
The Council was formed as a result of a confer*
enca held ln Winnipeg in 1919 and attended by over
1,200 persons from all over Canada. The second conference was held in Toronto in April nf 1923 and
was attended by about 1,500 persons, representing tht
nine provinces This conference, through many brilliant speakers on the programme, among them Sir
Michael Sadler, Sir Henry Newbolt, Lord Robert Cecil
and Sir Robert and Lady Baden-I'owell, sought te
set forth the Council's conception nf tbe role nf Education as a citizen builder,
The plans for this third.conference now pending
were laid at a meeting held in Montreal, presided
over by Sir Arthur Currie, In the absence of the
Chairman, and attended by several of thc leading
officers of the Council In the persons of Mr Vincent
Massey, President; Mr. S B. Gundy, Chairman of th*
Finance Committee, and Major F. .1 Ney. Executive
Secretary.
At present, the Council ls engaged In preparing
a programme for the second triennial period It haa
secured as Educational Secretary Professor 1. A Dale,
of the Social Service Department of thc University
of Toronto, whose duties will include the editorship
of a series of small volumes on educational problems.
The success of the National Lectureship Scheme inaugurated last year, which established important contact with thc leading minds of Great Rritain, will he

POTATO INSPECTION
AND CERTIFICATION
Arrangements have been made for
the continuation of potato Inspection
and certification during the coming
season, and forms of application have
already been forwarded to all potato I
growers whose fields were Inspected
last year. These forms are return-1
able up to July 1st. so that there is !
still ample time for any other grow-
ers  who may desire to submit their
fields for Inspection to write for a
form and secure any particulars they
may desire in respect to the work.
Letters (postage free) should be addressed to thc Dominion Botanist,
central Experimental Farm, Ottawa,
who will see that every attention Is
paid to requests for forms and additional information. He will arrange for the carrying out of Inspections at the appropriate time during
tbe season.
Two field inspections will as usual
be mnde, the first as near as possible
to thc blossoming period, and the second some three to four weeks later.
The standard for the field Inspection will be the same as thnt applied
lost year, and any fields, as the result of the two Inspections, found lo
measure up to this standard, will be
considered eligible for certification,
subject to an inspection of the tubers
after harvest and the grading out oi
any whicli may appear undesirable tor
seed purposes.

tleut days while the latter nmounted
to 42.11 patient days.
Repairs to Buildings
The most Important work undertaken by lhe Board durnig the year
was the enlargement of the heating
system. The furnace wns enlarged,
a considerable amounl of new piping
put in nnd additional radiation provided 111 most of lhe rooms. This was
done at a cost, of $1,067.66. A deputation from the Hoard consisting of
Mr. A. .MacKinnon und the President,
accompanied by Mr. Thomas Menzies
M.P.P., Comox District, interviewed
the Honorable Dr. McLean to procure
some Government assistance in this
work. The deputation was very' cordially received by Dr. McLean and
after placing our case before him he
agreed to pay 50 per cent of the cost
of the alterations.
Considerable kalsomlnlng nud painting will be required during the coming
yenr und the main building needs to
lie reshiugled.
Collections from private patients
have been fair. Unpaid accounts
amount to ?C44.50. a large proportion of which Is considered uncollect-
able. Efforts are being made to collect all possible.
On account of the Government re
quirements the Board of Directors
recommend the date nf ending the
tiscnl ..ear be changed from March
.'list to December 31st.
This will save considerable duplication of work to meet the requirements of the Government Reports.
On account of n recent amendment
to the Hospital Act. provision must
be made ln thc By-Laws for a City
representative on the Board.
We wish to express our appreciation
of the work of the Ladles' Auxiliary
during the past yenr. This body discontinued their work for a time, but
they have reorganized and are again
active ln furnishing comforts for the
patients, It. is rattier regretable that
so few of thc ladles take an active interest In this good work.
We also wish to express appreciation of the good work done by the
Matron nnd her stnff during the year.
We also wish to express thanks to
ull those who made donations or as.
Isted  the hospital in any way.
