PR0P08ED JMJTY ON OIL
A lengthy discussion took place
at a meeting of the Vancouver
Board of Trade at Vancouver on
Tuesday evening over the advisability of asking the Federal Government to place a tariff on all
fuel oil imported into Canada.
The jp^port of the special committee appointed to inquire into
the matter was embodied in a
resolution to the effect "that in
the opinion of this committee we
deem it advisable to recommend
to the Fedral Government that
a protective tariff be placed on
fuel oil imported into Canada,
but, that such tariff be not levied
on oil used for manufacturing
purposes."
The recommendation of the
special committee on oil which
was. that the Board recommend
the imposition of a duty was referred back to the committee for
further investigation.
The Cumberland Board of
Trade has written the Vancouver Board to the effect that a protective tariff be placed on all
fuel oil imported into Canada and
that the Dominion Government
be requested to give the coal industry a measure of protection
that it may exist and compete
^ith fuel oil imported into Cana-
*i'i from California.
It has been suggested, and
should be carried into effect,
i-Hata deputation of thft Cum-
^rland Board meet the Vancouv-
f^ Board in session and explain
'tiie effect that this wholesale
importation of fuel oil has on the
Coal Industry of the Island. We
must intercede and secure a protective tariff as early as possible
and such that will make fuel oil
prohibitive.
PUTS 4000 MENOUT OF WORK
Vancouver, May 12.—President
Phillipps, of the Merritt Board of
Trade, was among those present
at a meeting of the Vancouver
Board of Trade held on Tuesday,
and addressed the Board on 'the
subject of an import duty on fuel
oil. He claimed, during the cdurse
of his address, that 37 per cent
of the population of British Columbia were dependent upon the
coal industry. If the oil competition kept on one little hole in the
ground would supply the whole
-province.    He admitted that oil

was economical, but it was a foreign product and its use was
boosting a foreign state at the
expense of British Columbia.
Other speakers pointed out that
the coal industry was one of the
greatest in the province, second
only to timber, and that the oil
competition had already put 4000
men out of work.

"AS YE HAVE SOWN."
(From the Vancouver Daily Province.)
All the world with the exception of one nation stands
aghast at the catastrophe of the
Lusitania. To one nation alone
that catastrophe is a triumph, a
glorious achievment which reflects credit on the organization
and weapons which made it pos-
sicle. That one nation will excuse the loss of innocent life by
exclaiming "It is war." It will
cry "The passengers were warned
the ship carried arms and supplies
for our foes; we told you what
we would do; our necessity
knows no law; the wrong we
have done was forced upon us."
" The Wrong We Have Done "
—The world will now remember
that Germany began the war
with that cry. The violation of
Belgium was the initial wrong
and from that moment Germany
has trodden the road to ruin,
heaping wrong upon wrong.seem-
ingly convinced that she had only
to win in order to be right.
From the prophetic words of Beth-
mann von Hollweg to the stifled
cries of the drowning non-combatants on the Lusitania and the
ghastly choking gasps of the discolored victims of chlorine gas,
the steps of Germany's downward
course have been plain for all the
world to read. If the German
people do not hear in the sinking
of the Lusitania the lesson of the
Prussian creed which has been
thrust upon them,and forthwith
disassociate themselves from that
creed they must take the inevitable conseqences. For the world
will not condone this wrong. It
may stand aghast by the loss of
life,but it will not be frightened
by the callous brutality which
has caused it.
Up to high heaven rings the cry
of a nation condemned out of its
own mouth. If the individuals of
that nation plead they but obeyed
their orders, the excuse can not
serve them. Far above all rulers,
all states, there stands humanity.
Germany has consistently outraged humanity from the very
first, now at last humanity realized what Germany represents.
Here is the truth writ large in
the blood of innocence. The
tragedy of the Lusitania is the
tragedy of the word barbarically
tortured by a nation mad with
the lust of power. The causes
of the war, the cases of the belligerents may be a matter of argument—but the sheer brutality,
the " frightfulness " of which
Germany boasts as a weapon of
war leaves no room for anything
but determination to end it.
That is Germany's death warrant. Today the world is awake
to that wrong, understands it and
realizes at last the great cause
to which we have dedicated ourselves. There shall be no more
such wrongs; nine months ago we
set ourselves to right that wrong
and today the veil is torn from
the eyes of the world and it sees
clearly the issue at stake and the
supreme justice of our cause.
By those wrongs shall Germany
be judged. Before all the world
she stands condemned, an outcast,
an Ishmael among the nations.
From the depths where the Lusitania and Falaba lie; from hospitals where men groan in a needless death agony choked by poisonous gases; from the soil of Belgium and Poland; from the
mouths of countless innocents
sacrificed on the altar of Germany's "Kultur" from the whole
world now goes up the answer:
"AS YE HAVE SOWN, SO
SHALL YE REAP."

Dogs  Most  Useful  in  Detecting  Presence  of  Unseen   Foe
Recent wars have served to emphasize the advantages which may
be gained by the use of the peculiar
qualities of scent and hearing whics
dogs possess. Their sense of scent
we human beings lack almost entirely,
while they not only hear audible
things more quickly than we do, but
also hear things which are quite
inaudible to us. Great hounds were
used to guard the camps of Rome.
In even more primitive times they
were formidable adversaries in hand-
to-hand conflicts, while to come to
more modern days Frederick the
Great and Napoleon held a very high
opinion of the value of canine sentries.
Napoleon, in fact, is said to have
urged Marmont to fasten dogs to
stakes round the circuit of the walla
of Alexandria to keep guard.
The present day tendency is to
bring dogs more and more into the
foreground in warfare. During the
Russo-Japanese War the whole of tha
Manchurian railway line was guarded
by dogs, who gave the alarm, and on
several occasions prevented the
Japanese crossing the line. In the
Tripoli campaign their value was frequently demonstrated, while the war
dogs belonging to Major Richardson,
the famous Scottish trainer of war
dogs, rendered yeoman service to the
Bulgarians at the siege of Adrianople,
where they were able to give warning
of attempted sorties 1 y the Turks.
Most of the modern armies employ
dogs, although naturally opinions
differ as to the most suitable type of
dog. The Russians have adopted the
Caucasian dog, Austria Dalmatians,
Turkey Asiatic sheepdogs, Prance and
Belgium the smugglers' dogs of the
Belgian frontier, while Germany uses
collies, pointers, and Airedales. Major
Richardson believes that the only
really useful war dogs are the Airedale, sheepdog, and bloodhound. The
native courage and instinct of the
collie have been spoiled because it
has been "overbred."
When the Glass Shivered
Our brave soldiers listened with
rapt attention to the beautiful German
folksongs, the grand martial airs
played with splendid dash and spirit
by the "War Band," and to the moving melodies of the lady artists.
Then Herr Ernst Llssauer intoned
the "Song of Hatred," and when the
passion-pregnant words ceased reverberating through the building there
crashed forth a storm of cheering so
fierce and vehement as to cause the
very glass of the domed ceiling to j
shiver as though it were struck by
an earthquake. ,
With eyes ablaze, with fists clenched, soldiers and civilians alike rose
to their feet, loudly acclaiming the
poet's fury against England.—Berlin

BEVAN ANNIVERSARY SERVICE
The Anniversary Service which
was held last Sunday in the
school house was a great success.
The children, numbering between
60 and 70, occupied a temporary
platform, and a large audience
filled all the available seats. The
girls in white frocks looked very
dainty and the boys had smartened themselves up for the occasion. Special hymns were sung,
and recitations were given by
Beatrice Bannerman, Frances
and Maud Sandland, Blodwin
Williams, Lizzie Jaynes, Ruth
Armshaw and Willie Campbell.
Mr J. Sandland jr. was at the
organ and Mr. S. Humphries accompanied with the violin. Great
credit is due to Mr. J. Sandland
Sr., the superintendent, who
trained the children. An address
to the parents and children was
given by the Vicar of Cumberland
and Bevan.

THE ISLANDER, CUMBERLAND, B.C.
MINISTER SPEAKS STRONGLY
An indictment of the German
policy of sinking merchantmen
and a call to the United States to
demand reparation for the wrong
done by the sinking of the Lusitania was contained in the sermon
preached by Rev. C. Seymour
Bullock in the Unitarian Church
at Ottawa last Su nday. "I have
furled my American flag," he
said, "and shall never again fling
it to the free winds until niy country shall demand reparation and
the recognition of the""rights of
its citizens to sail in unquestioned
safety upon any waters on the
globe so long as the country itself is not at war. I have a bit
of bronze that I have worn in the
lapel of my coat and proudly
shown as a mute witness that I
once gave myself to death itself
if needs be to maintain my country's honor. But I have laid it
aside,and shall not wear it again
until it shall have been demonstrated that my country in its
passion for dollars has not lost
sight of its honor. I feel confident that the right thing' will be
done, but I shall not again hail
that flag, nor touch that bit of
bronze, until not only Germany,
but the whole world, shall have
been brought to see that every
cannon on every American ship,
every gun in every American fort,
every musket in the American
army, and every dollar of America's wealth stands for the rights
of every American citizen, either
at home or abroad.
"Better be a man without a
country than be the citizen of a
country in which one cannot be a
man. Better have no flag than a
flag that simply waves in the
dead air of a national atmosphere
that has lost the ozone and oxygen of self-respect."
