In the largest ballot ever polled I-.
Nelson. Mr. .McDonald received 1,1)77

John Potter Loses
Life In Alberni
Canal Saturday
Drowned   in   Boat   Collision
Word was received in Cumberland
last Sunday of the drowning of John
Potter iu the Alberni Canal on Saturday night. John, the son of Mr.
Dave Potter, was twenty-one years
of age and resided In'Cumbcrland for
many  years.
He and another young man, A.
Hansen, were out In the "Emma," a
j fishing boat outbound from Alberni.
It seems they were without riding
tights, when another boat,, the "Eight
Bells.' collided with them, almost cutting the Emma in half. The collision
took place at about 6:16 o'clock and
ihe night was very dark. Hansen
managed to keep afloat and w-as tin-
ally picked up by the Eight Bells and
taken to Port Alberni, a distance of
five and one-half miles. Potter, however, went down immediately and it is
thought was instantly drowned. It
is thought that an invertigation will
lie held as tu the cause of the accident.
Relatives of Ihe deceased ln Cumberland include a sister and brother-
in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Gordon,
and an aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs.
Jim Potter, and a cousin. Mr. John J.
Potter.

EDWARD W. BICKLE
FRIDAY. OCTOBER 21, 1927
WORKING DOLLARS
A FELLOW said in our hearing recently:   "A
savings account—a deposit in a bank—is a
dead account.   It is money out of circulation   and does nobody any good."
Can you imagine a sillier statement ? And yet
there are people who actually believe just that,    j
What does saving do for a people?   What doi
the banks do with savings ?   Those are questions
that will answer the man who says "a savings j
account does nobody any good."
The capital that produces the things we all
live by, the capital that keeps men busy, the
capital that enables families to be fed and clothed
and sheltered decently, the capital that meets
emergencies and gives the frugal man his opportunity can be built up for the benefit of all of
us only by means of savings.
But it is not enough merely that the man with
$10,000 a year should save $1,000 and the man
with $3,000 should save $500. These sums might
be saved and put in mattresses, socks and safety
deposit boxes. Then they would not create any
business, occupation, wages, profits or new capital.   They woul dbe dead—truly dead.
What is necessary to make these savings live?
It is necessary that these savings be collected
somewhere, gathered together in big sums, and
then be placed where they will create new business, new enterprise, new occupation for all.
Somewhere?   Where?
The answer today is: In banks and building
and loan associations where our friend thinks the
deposits lie dead, but where in reality they first
begin to live.
Of the millions of bank deposits or loan savings
most of the dollars are alive and working all the
time. The idea that these millions are as idle in
bank as they would be in socks or mattresses—
the idea that they represent "money out of circulation"—is as false as any idea can be.
Nobody can imagine a big business financing
itself, in season and out, by going from door to
solicit subscriptions from the socks and the mattresses.
But is it right for banks to use the people's
savings and deposits in this way ? It is, provided
the bank always is prepared to keep its contract
with the depositor and give him back his money'
when demanded.
The banks have found that only a part of the
savings are ever thus demanded at one and the
same time—that they can meet their contracts
to pay out deposits on demand and yet always
have the bulk of the deposits untouched.
Of course, there is reason in banking as in
other things, and it is perfectly reasonable for
bankers to assume from experience that not all
depositors will call for their money at the same
time. So also is it perfectly reasonable for the
life insurance companies to assume that not all
policy holders will die a tthe same time. Therefore, in banking as in life insurance, the funds
or savings that otherwise would be idle are quite
properly put to work as business capital by means
of business loans and purchases of business securities.
A SLAP AT YOUTH
THE question of "How old was Ann" is given
up. Nobody can tell how old Ann is or any
other woman by looking at her these days.
A grandmother of the present is hardly discernible from a thirty-year-old flapper unless you get
a clo3e-up just after she arises in the morning,
and that is difficult to do because she keeps her
bedroom door locked for fear of burglars.
The fact of the matter is that people are not
growing old as they did a generation ago. The
evidence goes to show that roughly eighty-five
per cent of the great things being done in the
world are done by men over fifty. Dr. Osier's idea
that a man should go onto the junk pile when
he is forty has been exploded. It isn't the men
over forty who are ready for the ash can, but the
young saps who are just old enough to sit up at
tables in night clubs withiut high chairs.
If this thing keeps on wewill be able to abolish
the homes for old folks, the country poor houses
and spend our surplus taxes on day nurseries for
the youth who are making damphools of themselves. Youth must be served and there are quite
a number of so-called smart young gents whose
grand-fathers are doing the home work for them.

DON'T LET THEM GET YOUR GOAT
THE most persistent, permanent and devoted
individual is the man that envies you.
He will devise ways and means to discredit you
With diabolic ingenuity he will try to injure you;
but always welcome him.
His insane idea of harming you should be an inspiration to you to go ahead and improve yourself.
Always have a few able enemies about you that
are envious for they are a spur to better work on
your part.
But never let them get your goat.

GOOD DUCK WEATHER
The pheasant and duck shooting
season opened on Saturday in a
downpour of rain which turned to a
howling south-easter before the day
was out. This, of course, was ideal
duck shooting weather for those who
do not mind getting ;. soaking and
the usual bombardment was on down
towards the Plats. Although It was
disagreeable weather for pheasnnt
hunting, those who had good dogs
and braved the storm got good bags.
Some idea of the weather may be
gathered from th'1 reporl that from
Friday night to Monday morning approximately four and one-half inches
of rain fell.

WHICH commandment is it that commands children to honor
and obey their father and mother?    It  is  a question,
seemingly, that any clergyman could answer.   Yet there
are several answers to it, and all are different, and all are right
That waa the discovery made at
Universal City when Emory Johnson
started to film "The Fourth Commandment," the picture which comes to the
Ilo Ilo Theatre Friday and Saturday,
October 28th and 29th.
The picture's theme is based on the
relation ot children to their parents,
and It was written by Mrs. Emllie
Johnson, mother of the director. Emory Johnson, with whom she has collaborated on all his big successes.
When it came to naming the production after the appropriate commandment, however, it was found
that various versions of the decalogue
do not agree.
Many versions of the Bible and the
Mosaic law places it as the fifth, a
few allot It sixth place and a greal
number present it as the fourth com-   Marlowe.  Kathleen   Myers  and  little

fourth commandment, antl bases her
arguments upon the version of the
Bible wherein the position of the ten
laws, as inscribed upon the two tali-
lets, is given as four on the first tablet and six on the second.
"The Fourth Commandment," one
of the features of the Universal programme of this season, has heen pronounced by critics as one of the
