NEW COUNCIL
The successful candidates for
mayor and aldermen held their
flrst session at the Council Chambers on Monday evening, and
were sworn into office by Mr.
Edward W. Bickle, Police Magistrate, as follows:
Mayor, Charles J. Parnham.
Aldermen: -Donald R. MacDonald, Robert Henderson, John
W. Cooke, Thomas II. Carey,
Thos. E. Banks and John Brown.
After the mayor and aldermen
had taken the oath, Mr. Bickle
complimented the several members on their election and, judging from the composition of the
Board, he expressed the belief
that the citizens of Cumberland
would feel satisfied with their
service at the end of the year.
Mayor Parnham then opened
the first session of the Council
for 1915 with a few remarks,
congratulating the members of
the Board upon their election,
and felt satisfied that they would
all work harmoniously for the
benefit of the city.
The secretary then read the
minutes of the last session of the
old Council, which were adopted
as read.
The following accounts were
referred to the finance committee:

LOCAL NEWS.
Born--On January 19th, 1915,
at West Cumberland,  B.C.,  to1
Mr. and Mis. F. J. Dalby, a son,
Mr. Hugh Sloan has declined:
his appointment as Police Com-;
missionev.
J. R. Lockard, General Superintendent of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., left for
Victoria on Thursday morning.
Charles Sanders, until recently
in the employ of Simon Leiser &
Co., Ltd., left for Vancouver on
Thursday morning.
Yesterday morning a new passenger coach went out with the
regular 10*30 train, which carries
the name of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd, It was
built at the company's Union Bay
machine shops, and is certainly
a credit to its builders. The new
coach is modern in every respect.
A long distance message from
Victoria received by the Islander
yesterday said that the railway
commission had ordered the E. &
N. Railway Company to build the
interchange of tracks at Royston
connecting the Wellington Colliery Railway with the direct line
to Victoria.
Robert Foster, who assisted
other agitators two and a half
years ago to put Cumberland on
the hog, was an unwelcome visitor to the city on Sunday, by the
morning train. We saw no one
i there to give him the glad hand,
as in the days of 1912. The working men have learnt a lesson they
are not likely to forget for some
years to come.
WOMEN'S PATRIOTIC
SOCIETY.
The Society has closed for the
next three weeks owing to lack
of funds.    It is hoped it will be
! able to start again when times
! are better, if the necessity still
exists.     Anyone  having   work
please  return  to Mrs.   Clinton
when finished.    A letter was re-
• ceived by the secretary from Mrs.
Henshaw,  Municipal Regent of
J the Daughters of the Empire for
j Vancouver, in which she referred
to the "splendid parcels sent by
j your society, the garments being
I so well made and just what are
needed  by  our soldiers at the
! front."
DEBATING SOCIETY
The regular meeting of the
above soeiety took place on Monday night as usual, the subject
for the night being, "What;
Causes War?" The subject was
discussed in a formal manner by
quite a number. Many of the
reasons which could be attributed
to the past wars were weighed
and talked about in a friendly
way, and the present German
war took up quite an amount of
time and discussion. \
After the subject was finished
the question of something lively
and interesting was considered
for next Monday night. A full
committee were chosen to have
ready an impromptu
BREACH OF PROMISE CASE.
We understand a prominent
young lady in town, whose assumed name is Miss Angelina!
Macwhackle, is suing Mr. Edwin
Stoppitisky, who is a young man j
of prepossessing appearance and
who no doubt is very loving in
disposition. It is a well known
fact that many of the young men
in town imagine that they can
play with the tender sympathetic
feelings of the young ladies.
. A jury will be picked from the
audience to give justice to both
sides, and should the suitor who
was so ardent in the first place,
but now grown cold, be found
guilty it is hoped the judgment
given will be such that other
young men will consider well
before doing likewise.
The judge for the evening is one
who has meted out justice often
from the bench. The budding
lawyers who have been chosen to
look after their clients' interests
will no doubt make themselves
acquainted with the fine points at
stake. The clerk of the court is
one who is able to All that duty
nobly. The foreman of the jury
is worthy of the great trust reposed in him, and will no doubt
endeavor to weigh every item of
evidence in the scales of justice
before presenting the findings of
his jury to the learned judge.
A cordial invitation is given to
all and a good entertainment is
promised for the evening. Young
men and maidens are specially
invited.
GERMAN ARRESTED.
Vancouver, B.C., Jan. 16.—For
asserting that the German flag
would wave over New Westminster courthouse in a short time
and for threatening to teach the
British Columbia residents what
German "kultur" really was. a
German, giving the name of
Steve Burke, was arretted by the
New Westminster police this
evening. He will he sent to the
military prison at Nanaimo, where
Baron von Mackensen, of Port
Kelis, a nephew of General von
Mackensen now fighting in Poland, was sent under guard, in
company with other German suspects, all of whom are alleged to
have assisted reservists to leave
Canada. They will be detained
until the end of the war.
Joseph Shaw says in the News
that the recent municipal election
was engineered by the Conservative Association. If so, the Conservatives made them all sit up
and take notice. We can assure
Mr. Shaw that the Conservative
Association did not take any part
in the recent municipal election.
We understand Mr. Shaw is not
a housholder nor a property owner and does not contribute one
cent towards the revenue of the
city. We are at a loss to find a
cause why he should trouble himself about an election that does
not concern him. We have on out-
table a long letter in reply to Mr.
Shaw but, pshaw! why should
we publish a reply? It takes
money to set up type.
LIEUT.-GOV.'S. SHIELD, 1914.
This Challenge Shield, which
was held during 1914 by the Fair-
vjew Troop, Vancouver, has been
won by the Victoria III. who will
hold it during the year 1915. The
Order of Merit, with the points
gained of the 21 leading troops,
is appended. The maximum of
points possible was 60. Victoria
111 came first with 41; followed
by Port Hammond with 35; closely followed by Chesterfield (North
Vancouver with 35.
The majority of the totals are
far too low; the maximum is
within the reach of every troop.
It is impossible for us to go into
details here, but we will gladly,
on request, point out to individual troops the reasons why they
failed to gain more points, in the
hope that they will gain higher
positions another year.

Hon. T. R. Heneage,
Victoria, B.C.:
I desire to extend hearty New
Year's greetings from the Canadian General Council of the Boy
Scouts Association to the officers
and members of the Provincial
Council of British Columbia and
to all others in British Columbia
who are giving time and money
and attention to this splendid
work. The Boy Scout movement
has more than justified its founder's hopes concerning it by the
results already attamed, and we
look for a large increase in its
membership throughout Canada
next year.      ARTHUR,
Chief Scout.
H.R.H. The Duke of Connaught,
K.G., Ottawa.:
The officers and members of
the British Columbia Boy Scout
Association most warmly appreciate the gracious and most welcome New Year's greetings extended to them by Your Royal
Highness and Canadian General
Council, and desire to send their
own most respectful and loyal
greetings to Your Royal Highness, together with an expression
of their earnest wish to do every
thing in their power to further
the work of your council, and
bring about an increase in membership and efficiency during thc
year now begun.

BOARD OF TRADE
TAKES ACTION
Mr. Eric P. Hernberg is now-
prepared to give lessons in
French. Anyone desiring to
learn the French language should
communicate with Mr. Eric P.
Hernberg, P.O. Box -126, Cumberland, B.C.
ThcCumberland Board of Trade
realizing the condition of affairs
in this city through the lack of a
market for our local collieries, and
knowing that the markets for
coal in this province has been
usurped by Washington coal, to
i the disadvantage and distress of
! the coal miners on this island,
have written to the boards of
trade in the large centres, voicing
their sentiments in no uncertain
| manner. The Vancouver Sun
jthus comments upon the letter
j addressed to the Vancouver
! Board of Trade:—
That the importation of Washington coal into British Columbia
and its use in preference to coal
mined in this province, is working a hardship on the people of
the coal-mining town of Cumberland and other camps on Vancouver Island, is the burden of a
complaint which has been received from the Cumberland
board of trade by Secretary Blair
of the Vancouver board of trade.
The influence of the local body of
business men is asked for the
miners and their families, of
Cumberland.
Cumberland coal, it is stated,
| is of better grade than Washing-
' ton. There seems to be no reason
why it should not be used, and
the Washington coal ejected from
i the market, the communication
continues. The assertion is made
; that Washington coal is' used at
; the Vancouver general hospital,
and also in the heating of the
provincial buildings, though, it is
said, this is probably unwittingly
! for the Cumberland people are
reluctant to believe that the use
of Washington coal has intentionally become so general.
The condition of the miners of
Cumberland is said to be very
poor. During all of December
the mines worked but five days.
Previous to December they wer?
working and the men got in only
half time. This month's work
numbers but two days. The pop
illation of Cumberland depends
altogether upon the coal mines
for existence, and with the mines
all but shut down for want of a
market for their product, the
miners and their families are
having a difficult time meeting
their bills, and the business
houses, likewise, are facing their
own particular difficulties.
If merely the war were responsible for such a condition of
affairs, the communication says,
there would be no complaint, for
it was expected, and naturally
so, that there would be a falling
off in shipping on account of the
war, but when things seemed to
be at their worst thc local coal
mines are suddenly forced almost
altogether out of the home market by coal from an alien country.
The council of the board of
trade will take the matter up at
their next meeting. 71

SATURDAY, JANUARY 23rd, 1915.
TiiiE Hon. Robert Rogers. Minister of Public
*      Works, in an inspiring address to several
hundred representative business men at lhe Adanac
Club, in Winnipeg, a few days ago, says: -
" This is Canada's war, and we are in it to the
finish with every man and every dollar of our resources, if necessary. Notwithstanding the appalling conditions which we had to meet some few
months ago, conditions which had shaken and
disturbed the very foundations of the system of
government of so many of the great nations of
Europe, we in Canada can look with pardonable
pride on the fact that we have not only been able
to carry out that proud and extensive programme
of general national development, but we have also
lieen able to assume our full share of responsibility
in the great emergency which we had to meet fi\ e
months ago. An emergency such as no government in Canada had ever before been called upon
to meet. In that solemn moment we recognized
that assistance promptly given was doubly valuable.
We acted not only quickly, but we gave generously, believing as we did, and knowing as we do, that
in so doing we had the support and sympathy and
the approval of the Canadian people everywhere.
There was only one place for the Canadian people
in that great crisis, and we selected that place in
that wider field of operations where the destinies
of our country and of its future are to be decided.
We selected that place with all the power and with
every faculty at our command, to assist in the,
protection and in the maintenance of our greatest
possession, that of our British citizenship. Not [
only that, but also our membership in the great
British Empire. We are endeavoring as best wej
can to keep these two great possessions unimpaired,
not alone for ourselves, but for those who are to
come after us, and for the world, because we know
no greater loss could come to civilization than the
crippling of the great British Empire, which is the
great world force in the protection of our liberty
and our freedom both upon land and upon sea. We |
are in this struggle with all our power, with all our
energy and with everything we possess. We propose to see it through in a manner that will reflect
credit upon the Canadian people.
"If there is one part of our position that;
should inspire us with greater confidence than;
another, it is that we are safe in the carrying out
of this great work of development because we have
lhe ever-abiding protection of the great power and
ability of the British Empire and of its naval forces
to see that our pathway across the sea to every
desirable market in the world is at all times kept
open for our advantage and to our benefit."
.SINCE the war started it is estimated that
<^7 orders for war material and equipment to
the value of some sixty million dollars have been
placed in Canada by the Canadian, British, French,!
and Russian governments. Contracts for outfitting'
Canada's troops have totalled $20,000,000. Con-:
tracts for saddles, leather goods, uniforms and
heavy winter garments of all kinds from the British Government and Allies total another twenty
millions, and orders for shrapnel shell placed in
Canada run from twenty to twenty-three millions.
SUCCESSFUL
PRINTERS
^®?8|HE successful
men are those
who have worked while their neighbours' minds were
vacant, or occupied
with passing trivialities; who have
been acting while
others have been
wrestling with indecision. They are the
men who have tried
to read allj that has
been written about
their craft; who
have learned from
the masters and
fellow craftsman of
experience, and profited thereby; who
have gone about
with their eyes open
noting good points
of other men's work,
and considered how
they might do it
better. Thus they
have risen above
mediocrity, and in
striving towards
perfection have educated themselves in
the truest manner.
