This   Year's  Preparations  will
Eclipse all Previous
The citizens of Cumberland
have decided to celebrate the 24th
of May on tbe Recreation Grounds
A strong committee will get down
to work during the coming week
,and form the various committees
necessary to ensure a good day's
sport, in fact no stone will be left
unturned to make the day thi3
year the greatest in the history
of Cumberland.
Progress and prosperity has
left the so-called in the rear that
it has now become obscure, which
makes Cumberland and district
look forward and onward.
The general committee estimates that it will be responsible
to raise $750 for prizes, a sum
that will exceed the amount raised
last year. Included in the sports
the committee expect to be able
to give a grand prize for the best
decorated automobile. There are
quite a number of autos in the
city and district and the prize
should prove quite an attraction.
In addition there will be football,
baseball and lacrosse, and various
other sports.
Among the numerous arrivals
here of late to work in and around
the mines there are some good
athletes and it will take good
men to make some of them take
a back seat. Bevan, commonly
known as No. 7, say they have
one of the finest fooball teams in
the country.
Loan* for Dominions.
In the British House of Commons on Monday Mr. Norton
Griffith'- asked the Chancellor of
the Exchequer whether he could
now consider the advisability of
introducing legislat on giving preference to those dominions which
supported the imperial navy
directly or indirectly when their
loans were made in this country
and preference to all the dominions over foreign countries by the
imposition of a small tax, similar
to that existing in France, on
foreign loans raised in England.
' Mr. Lloyd George replied that
under the existing law there was
a preference as regards stamp
duty in respect to loans issued
here by colonial governments as
compared with foreign governments. He added that no further
differentiations would be advisable.
Big Liner Launched.
The largest steamship ever
built in Great Britain, the Cunard
liner Aquitania, was successfully
launched on the Clyde today.
The new vessel is double-shelled
and carries boats sufficient to
accommodate 4250 people, the
entire complement of passengers
and crew.
The Aquitania cost the Cunard
Line $10,000,000 to construct, not
to mention the cost of her luxurious equipment.

A grand ball took place in the
Cumberland Hall last evening
under the auspices of the Ladies'
Auxiliary of the Union and Comox
District Eospits.l. Their efforts
were crowned with success by
the crowded appearance of the
hall, about 75 couples taking part
in tho dance with numerous spectators. Refreshments were served by the ladies at midnight.
Messrs. Parnham, Hugo and Roy
supplied the music.
Chief. Constable Stephenson is
to be commended for the action
he took on Wednesday evening
on the arrival of the passenger
train. ' For some time past the
crowd has been in the habit of
going, down to the platform the
moment they heard the whistle
announce the approach of the
trai.ii', there crowding intentionally amongst tho passengers.
Several complaints have been
made' to the police by visitors
coming to the city of the annoyance and inconvenience they had
hud been put to by the crowding
of tl e platform. The Chief told
tne crowd on Wednesday evening to take the main road, and;
they took it. We understand that
loiterers on the public highway
will be told to move on.
Two Men Killed and Three Injured while working at
No. 8 Shaft.
No.8 New Shaft was the scene
of a serious accident on Saturday
morning. Ten men were work
ing in the shaft timbering up the
sides and had completed the set
of timbers they were working on
and moved their platform up to
get ready for another set. While
making preparations the platform
gave way and precipitated five
men to the bottom of the shaft, a
distance of about forty feet. Two
men were killed. C. Contenanzo
and Elias Doving, the other three
men were severely injured but
will recover. The remaining five
of the ten. men who were working in the shaft at the time of
the accident were fortunate to
find a place of safety in the timbers around the shaft. They gave
the necessary signals and assisted in the rescue of their injured
Coroner Abrams held an inquest on Monday afternoon when
the following jury were sworn:
John N. McLeod (foreman), A.
McKinnon, John J, Weir, A. H.
Peacey, W. Merrifleld, and. T.
Several witnesses were examined by Thomas Graham, chief in
spectnr of mines, who asked that
the inquest be adjourned until
such time as the injured men
sufficiently recovered to give evidence. To this the Coroner consented.

Yes sir, the Canadian Northern

account of this 'ere strike at
Cumberland. They say the
shareholders were sore as the
devil, and have fired Coulson,
Lockard and Clinton. They said

For Double Trackinc.
The calling by the C. P. R. for
tenders for clearing the first 25
miles west from Revelstoke ready
for double-tracking is the most
important news item of the week
at Revelstoke, and is lending
additional interest and energy to
recent realty movements. The
present spring is marked in fact
by a renewal of business in every
ine, and gives promise of leading
up to the mo-1 prosperous year
in the history of this centre and
London, April 22.—It will cost
the staggering sum of $978,200,-
000 to run the British Government through the ensuing fiscal
year, according to the Chancellor,
Rt. Hon. David Lloyd George,
who introduced his budget in the
House this-afternoon. This is a
big increase, the augmentation
being caused by expenditures for
the army and navy.
According to the Chancellor the
British public is going on the
"water wagon." His speech
showed that 8,700,000 gallons less
spirits were consumed in the past
four years than in the preceding
The export trade of the country
has now reached its highest
The Chancellor said he would
be prepared to raise $25,000,000
outside of known revenues.
No new taxes will be imposed
to meet expenditures. The European money stringency, said the
Chancellor, is due to France,
Austria and Germany hoarding
$300,000,000 for any emergency
which might involve war.
"There are no indications that
the trade boom has reached its-
maximum, and there are no signs
of over-production," said the
Chancellor, "and taking all facts
into consideration, I feel justified
in coming to the conclusion that
we have entered on the most
glowing year that British trade
has ever seen."
Mr. Lloyd George estimated
that the increase in the customs
and excise taxes would be $12,-
825,000, the increase in the death
duties $7,500,000, and the increase
in the income tax and supertax
The balance of the shortage
would be made up with the in
come tax and other revenue due
last year, but only paid at the
beginning of the current year,
and $5,000,000 taken from the
exchequer balance, and representing money voted for the navy
in 1911-12 but not expended.
The Chancellor estimated that
the total revenue on the existing
basis of taxation would be $979-
125,000, leaving a margin of $925, -
000 over the estimated expenditure.
" The cost of armaments, "
Chancellor Lloyd George remarked, "is the largest and most
sterile in my experience, ami I
cannot see any prospect of this
menacing development coming to
an end, unless some changes take
place in the attitude and the
policy of the nations concerned.
The expenditure on education
A dynamo is a machine for producing electric currents by mechanical means, and electricity is
used as a means of transmitting
power. The source of power
may be steam or water. Transmitting power by electricity
claims advantages over other
systems, such as considerable reduction in capital expenditure for
long distances compared with
either compressed air, endless
rope or steam, the greater the
distance the greater the economy:
small generating plant, small cost
of maintenance, high efficiency,
small loss through leakage ns
compared with compressed air.
The cables take up very little
room and can very easily and
quickly be fixed and laid around
sharp bends in much less time
than is required to put in com
pressed-air pipes or endless ropes;
and cables and motors are easily
removable from place to place.
The disadvantages of electricity
for underground use are that it
cannot very well be applied to
coal cutting in mines subject to
explosives mixtures of firedamp,
although it is claimed that this
danger has been overcome to a
certain extent by enclosing the
armature, commutattor and
swithes (which are parts of the
motor subject to sparking) in gas-
tight cases, It should not be used
in any mine or part of a mine
where there is likely to be danger
from gas or dust.
One of the best safety lamps
used for feating should be provided with each motor when working
and should the lamp at any time
show any indication of firedamp
the current should be immediately cut off and a report made .to
proper official, and the current
should not be used again until
an examination has been made
by such official and the place
found safe and a report made
and signed by him (to that extent) in a book kept at the mine
for the purpose.
Another objection is the risk of
fire from the breaking of the
cables by falls of roof or derailed
cars, for if the cable be broken
there would be sparking at the
point of sevorance.and the difference of potential existing on
either side of the break causes
the current to arc across the
space between the broken ends
of the wires, which will continue
until the space between the broken ends of the wires, which will
continue until the space resisten-
ance is too great, and will then
cease, If some other substance
of a higher conductivity than air
intervenes in the gap, theeurrent
may continue to find its way
along this, even after tho two
ends of the cable ha\''"> got too
far apart to carry the current
direct. Moist timbermaydo this,
lt is then a source of danger as a
means of letting fire to any surrounding inflammable material or
Government  Has Majoriety of
Tfiirty-Five by Straight
Party Vote.
The closure rules passed the
House at Ottawa shortly before
one o'clock on Thursday morning
by a straight party vote of 108 to
73- a Government majority of
The division was not marked
by any special incidents outside
of the noisy cheering by both
sides after the House had adjourned.
There were two divisions. The
first was on llic motion of Hon.
J. D. Hazcn that the question be
now put. This was carried by a
35 majority, and the main resolution amending the uilos waa
then put, and was carried by the
same division.
The Week's Output.
The output for the local mines
this week shows an increase of
501 tons over the previous week.
The total for the six working
days, commencing Saturday April
19th to Friday April 25th inclusive, totals 9341 tons.
The output still keeps climbing
up in spite of the few remaining
agitators who are still here trying
to dupe the ignorant. The latest
deception that the few soreheads
are trying to make the many
gulp down is to the effect that
two hundred Russians were on
their way here and that the Union
got hold of 195 and persuaded
them to go back. Anything goes
with them to keep the feeble
minded here idle on the $4.00
remittance money.

representatives tbe power to carry on the business of the
country, for which thei/ are responsible lo the people themselves.
'Lhe rules irbich have been proposed are far wore moderate
nnd not nt'ni'1;/ ns drastic as those in force ill the British House,
Tbey are also not as draslric ns those which are used in tbe
American 'House of Representatives, Every representative

course of time to protect itsell by closure rules in oue form 01

It is doubtful if rules have been introduced iutiny country

they hnve brought down measures so eminently fair and even
generous to the opposition, nnd hnve shown so strung a desire
to preserve inlticl to tbe utmost possible extent the liberties ol
the representative* of the people of till shades of party opinion.
The-first change in lhe rule provides that motions of a
more nr less formal character shall not he debatable and there
fore cannot he used lor the purpose of obstruction.
The second amendment provides merely that after, the]
debate upon the question under consideration hns been1
adiourliod in the House a Minister of the Crown may give
notice that such motion or proceeding/ shall not he adjourned
beyond the next sitting, It the House decided favorably ou
the motion then the debate can las', for the remainder of that
