VETERAN'S   OXE
Proinptly'at 2 o'clock, Sunday afternoon, on the Recreation Grounds,
referee Mat. Guineas set the ball roiling' In the (irst Brackman-Ker Cup
llxtuie of the season. Cumberland
United versus G.W.V.A. of Nanaimo.
At the souiio. of the whistle tiie
Vets, made tracks for the home goal
and hardly before anyone knew the
game was on, Mnnohnn bumped an opponent in lhe penalty area, conceding
a penalty. Watson, the Inside left for
the G.W.V.A., took the shot and beat
Blair with a hard one just under the
bar. In the left hand corner of the
goal. Tlle goalie hail nc| chance
whatever lo save, the ball being driven
with sucli force and In such a direction that It was impossible to stop it.
On resuming play the Vets, again
pressed hard but Conti and Stewart,
thc home backs, were equal to the occasion and let their forwards away
with a neat bit a)t place kicking.
After some exciting moments in front
of the goal, Bannerman, who all the
time had been playing In slush and
mini, sent in a beautiful cross. Graham pounced on the ball and shot
for goal bul it struck all opponent
and bounced back, giving Turner au
opportunity which he immediately
availed himself of, beating the Vet's'
goal tender with a fast shot from close
in.
For aboul ten minutes after Cumberland evened the score, the play
wns of a midfield nature, both teams
lining the- long kick instead of the
short puss. However, the locals
settled down to the latter style and
incidentally Turner and Deluce, assisted by Graham, made straight for
the visitor's' goal. Deluce, the right
wing for the home team, crossed to
Graham who beat the backs by a
tricky piece of work and shot from
near the lS-yard line. The VetR.
goalie wns not expecting it and was
standing In one corner of the goal
ivhcre he had no chance to save the
bull which landed iu the other corner
completely out of his reach. This
ended lhe scoring for the first half
although tollllgnn and Turner both
sent lu some hard shots right aftur
Graham.'s goal was shot. Deluce sent
in some stingers hut luck was not
wilh him, all his shots either bitting
the side ot the net or going over the
lop of the bar. Half-time came with
Cumberland one goal up.
Just as lhe referee blew the whistle
tor resumption of play, it began to
rain and rain It did for the remainder
or the game. However, both teams
went to woi'k with a will, but it was
soon seeiLthnt it would be Cumberland's game, The VetB. worked hard
and got away several llnies, but were
outclassed. In one instance, Watson
for the G.W.V.A., just missed a crass
by inches whicli would have been
a score goal had he connected.
The locals continued to press hard
and their efforts were rewarded when
Turner sent in a high shot which
again heal lhe goalie, making lhe
score 3-1 In Cumberland's fnvnr and
making his second goal of the game.
Prom the kickoff Monohan received
tin ball and sent In' a long drive, the
goalkeeper bavin): to concede a corner iu living ii. Bannerman placed
lhe hall well but lhe ycterniis cleared
and relieved the pressure for the
lime being. As Ume was nearly up,
the locals pressed harder than ever,
wllb the result that Milligan scored,
a teal which he lias not done for a
long time for Ctimberlnnd .although
be Is one of the hardest workers on
the forward line. This ended the
scoring lor tho day, time being called
with lhe score 4-1 In favor or Cumberland.
For the G.W.V.A.. Dave Graham
and Watson 'played a hard game but
tlielr efl'orls were fruitless against
Cumberland's fast forward line. Cumberland has at this time the fastest
forward line iu B.C., althougth the
day's play showed Graham and Tumor somewhat Inclined to be selfish and
to play lo each other too often. If
' they would share up a little more with
the oilier forwards* nothing should
stop them tills sldo of Montreal. The
hair buck line is all tbat could be desired. Monohan especially played a
great game, reeding his forwards
well, lint he does not brenk up an attack as well as Conti'docs. Conti
nnd Stewart played a good game at
full back and

Joseph Wright, one or the film industry's leading production engineer,
has stolen the thunder ot Jove, the
Olympian god, hurler of thunderbolts
ln the pages of Greek Mythology. His
thunderbolts and bis stormssare even
more spectacular than the Jovian cataclysms of which Homer sang or
Virgil described; for they're so real
they actually terrify.
Wright Is the man who built the
typhoon and storm for "Thundering
Dawa" a Universal Super-Jewel production, which portrays an upheaval
of tiie elements followed by a tidal
wave that is the last word In realism.
Also It is probably the biggest arti-
llclal storm ever staged.
The storm Ib the climax of lhe
sensational play of Java directed by
Harry Garson. The story is laid iu
the heart ot the melting pot of the
Orient during the "six months rains'
of thetropies; gay cafes and pitfalls
for souls are shown as they exist In
the strange land near, the Equator,
and the gigantic storm is the climax.
Wright combined engineering skill
with dramatic artistry in framing lhe
mammoth spectacle. Great tanks fur-1 _______

The concert presented by the pupils
of the Public School laBt Monday and

they have ever produced, ranking with
that of last year's, whl,ch was one of
the best concerts ever produced hy
the children in this district. Pupils
In every class from Div XIII up lo
the Entrance Class took part, the,
tiniest tots playing their parts.as well
as those much older. Both Monday
and Tuesday the hall was packed to
capacity and as the curtain was raised at 8 o'clock sharp there was hardly even.standing room.
After the singing of "O Canada," by
the pupils and audience ,the concert
opened with an action song, "Down by
the Sea,'' by the pupils of Dlvs. XI,
XII, and XIII, who were Instructed
by their teachers, Mrs. Drader, Misses
J. E. Robertson and P. Hunden. The
scene, which was very well received,
represented children playing wilh

was a little play entitled "Mother

and acted their parts to perfection.
The next number on the program was
perhaps the best of the whole concert,
with the exception of the play "The
White Cat." It was a song with variations, "Old Black Joe," by the senior
boys under H. E. Murray, accompanied ..by their own orchestra. Special
mention should be made of this off
-chestra which consists of about a
dozen hoys with various musics] instruments. For a long time these
boys have been practicing under .Mr.
Murray and the progress they have
made is remarkable. Any boy wishing to join the orchestra may do-so
if he has an instrument and attends
the "practices eacli day alter school.
Mr. .Murray's help is tree, so here is
a wonderriil chance for any Cumberland boy. At present there ls a

LADYSMITH, Dec. 5.—The Nanaimo
and Ladysmith football teams met on
Sunday   In   the   first   round   of   the
Brackman-Ker Cup and Interest was
very keen as to the outcome, as each
club had a win over the other to its
credit   since   Nanaimo   captured   tho
Dominion championship,     The game
was fast and furious throughout and
resulted in the defeat of the Domln-
j ion champions by 3-0, and the score
j represents  tho  play  throughout  tiie
] game.      Such a  Bcore,  however, be-
| tween   the  two  teams   has  been   un-
I heard of for some years as Ladysmlth
in the past has only managed to get
a win by one goal and in tho majority
of wins for Nanaimo the end has been
attained by the penally kick.
This   game,  however,   left   nothing
to doubt and it was surely a case of-
the better team winning.
Ladysmith won the toss nnd the
lirst half was of a very short snappy
nature with plenty of mid-(ic!d play,
Ladysmith, however, having the edge
of the play. In this half, although
the ball crossed the deadline many
times .neither goalkeeper was called

The second half opened
strong attack by Nanaimo
play was shortly altered to the other
end of the field, where it rcmninu!
for the majority of the second half,
Nanaimo showing occasional bursls
of speed but were novir dangerous,
although Adams mndeyO very fine attempt to head in 'a cross kick.
Nineteen minutes from time, Strang,
the outside right of the Ladysmith
club, from a scrimmage in front of the
Nanaimo goal, managed to kick the
ball over his head and it rolled into
the goal. From the kick-off the play
was very last but the Ladysmith liair-
back line was too strong and the hull
was again transferred to lhe Nanaimo
end. the Ladysmlth centre forward
gaining possession and after a very
tine run .in which he heat the whole
of the Nanaimo defence single-handed, he shot a goal. A lew minutes
after tills, Chapman, the inside left
for Ladysmith .received a pass from
the centre half which ho made no mistake in transferring to the net, giving the Nanaimo custodian no chance.
The game was refereed by A. S.
Jones, who acquitted himself well,
hut it is hard Io understand why lie
should caution players three and four
times for dirty play and still let them
remain on the Held of play.
McDougall al centre half and Adams

figures for the Nanaimo City team,

SEVERELY BURNED
Last Sunday afternoon while preparing to do some rush work at liis
blacksmith shop. Mr. William Leigh-
ton, of the firm ol' Lelghton Bros., son
of Mr. and Mrs. George I.eight.ni. was
severely burned by an explosion of
calcium carbide. There is no certainty as to how the explosion was
caused but It is surmised that the
carbide became dampened over night
through a leak in the roof of the shop.
When Mr. Lelghton touched the tin
to move it the explosion occurred.
His face was severely burned bin h<.
is resting easily at the home of his
parents on the Lake Trail.

INVESTIGATE CONDITIONS
IN PULPWOOD INDUSTRY
Considerable interest was evoked
in logging circles in Coniox during
the debate In the legislature regarding
ihe proposed embargo on the expoit
of logs. There is considerable American capital Invested in tiie Industry
in Comox. two big camps, being operated by American firms. Thc Bloedel, Stewart & Welsh Company operate a big camp and ship their output
i to I heir sawmill at Belllngham In the
Stale of Washington . They have also a camp at Myrtle Point, south of
Powell River. Another company
hacked hy illimitable American Cup-
ilal, and a concern that has come to
the Island in the past few mouths is
the  Esary   Timber   Company,   whose
base of operations is located at Deep
Bay.     It ls argued In some quarters
that if an embargo had been placed
on the export of timber these camps
would have had to shut down, llirow-
i ing a large number of men out of employment, creating an over supply cf
. labor, tliat could be dictated to by the
i big milling Interests in the  way of
' wages making it compulsory for the
1 laboring man to accept lower wages
or go without work.     The Independ-
I ent loggers claim    also,    that    they
j would have had to close down because
; a great proportion of their output goes
to tiie States.      In fact the.,   sent a
wire   lo  the  Government  protesting
j against the proposed legislation,     On
j the other hand the supporters of an
embargo placed a great deal of emphasis on the fact thnt they believed
if the logs that were being being shipped to the States were kept at homo
'It would encourage tlle construction

"Typhoon!" a woman screeched! Crash! The great timbers of the gilded palace splintered and fell
under the Impabl of the terrible storm. Pandemonium reigned! Trees, houses, people, whole cities
were whirled up nnd dashed to destruction. Close on the heels of the typhoon came the most dreaded
of nature's catastrophes, Ihe tidal wave! ln tho mad rush of swirling waters the whole earth seemed
doomed. In ils midst, a man feebly struggled for breath and safety, and a slim girl struggled, too, for

Exceptional   Kills in  Quebec   and  Ontario
WITH the coming of the frost and
the "Moon of the Falling
Leaf" comes also the hunting season for caribou, moose and deer.
For the past ten months, thousands
ot sportsmen have been longing for
the return of the season. And today the season, in Quebec, Ontario,
New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Alberta and British Columbia is in full
swing. Once more the naked woods
are echoing with the crack of the
hunter's rifle and the red blood of
Canada and the United States is pitting itself against the monarchs nl
our native wilds.
In Quebec, good chances for deer
are reported from Lake Megantic,
the Laurentians, the Gatineau Valley, along the Waltham branch line
of the Canadian Pacific, Timiskam-
ihg-Kipawa district and other points,
while, in Ontario, Parry Sound,
Byng Inlet, Pakesley, French River,
Paget (for the Trout Luke Countr,
Lake Penage, Massey, Blind Riv
Thessalon, Desbarats, Mattav
North Bay, Sturgeon Fails and Ci
tier are well favored. Moose i
plentiful in Ontario i
along the main line of the Canadian
Pacific from Sudbury to the Manitoba boundary, especially near Metn-
gama, Biscotasing, Chapleau, Mis-
anabie, Franz, .lack Fish, Schreiber,
Rossport, Nipigon, Savanne, Ignace,
Dinorwic, Wabigoon, and Kenora,
and, in Quebec, in the St. Maurice,
Lake Edward, Lake Megantic, Manl-
waki, Timiskaming and Kipnwa districts.
Caribou, in Quebec, may now be
found only in the remote northern
sections, arid, in Ontario, on the
islands of Lake Superior and round
Rossport, Schreiber and Nipigon, on
the mainland.
From all these districts come
stories of wonderful luck which will
thrill the pulses of every hunter.
Take the good fortune of Dr. C.
H. McCreary, of Montreal, and Mr.
A. J. O'Kcefo, of New Rochelle,
New York, regular patrons of
the Ste. Jovite district of the
Laurentians, Quebec. Penetrating
some days ago from Grey Rocks Inn,
at Ste. Jovite, to Big Devil's Lake,
sometimes referred to as Lac la
Croix, Ihey met several cow moose
and an Immense bull.  But the climax
ame when another splendid bull
obligingly look up a position within
50 yards of their tent. The first
shot from the doctor's trusty rifle
broughl him down nnd Mr. O'Keefa
finished  him off,
Again, from F. W. Arnott's Tern-
Kip Camp, 30 miles up Lake Timis-
' anting from Timlskamlng Station,
at the mouth of Kipawa River, word
comes nf how Mr. J. A. Cavanaj,h,
f New York, got his moose within
nn hour and a half of leaving camp,
and w.-is back within two hours and
a half. Next morning, while the
animal was being skinned, another
big moose calmly watched the operation for five minutes from a point
close by.
After that, you ran still keep your
,hand, off your rifle?

"CHUCKLES"!
If n fire broke out In your house
and you lost your home, your wile
and family narrowly escaping with
their lives, would you consider it a
joke? A Vancouver evening journal
however, sees some fun in the situation and makes a front page josh
of it in its "Chuckle" department.
inder the caption "ChuckleB" off the
Wire," are seen frequent illustrations
of the oblique and opaque sense of
humor of the man who laughs when
someone nearly breaks his neck falling upon a piece of banana peel, or
the half-baked yap that opens his
mouth like un axe-gash and roars
witli Bedlamtc laughter when somt-
body falls over something in Episode
No. 13 of the "Horrors of H tittle" at
the movies,
Laughter- in its place—Is admirable. The world would he happier
with more mirth. But we cannot,
for the life of us, see any humor in
human suffering or an incident that
means tears or tragedy for the other
fellow.—The Hook.
SUIT YOUR  MOUTH
It has come at lasl, just as house-
broken, tender-hearted men have
been prophesying and warning for
years. They have pleaded aud they
have scolded; ihey have put the matter on hygienic and on emotional
grounds and husky woman has carried her penchant for stuffing clothes
pins in her mouth while hanging out
the family wash, too far.
Of course he has defended it on the
ground that it was easier, and, taking
a tip from the very latest craze of the
day, has declared that it has increased her efficiency many fold. That
was all right as far as it went, but, as
the sad case of .Mrs. Martha Hunt, of
Chiselhurst, Montana, proves, it has
gone too far. Mrs. Hunt put so many
clothespins in her mouth that they
got tangled up and in trying to get
them out dislocated her jaw. Her
frightened family hurried her off to
the nearest hospital where the surgeon, after having her under an anas-
thetic for an hour, finally succeeded
in getting her jaw back to its normal
place. He said, however, that il was
lhe worst case of dislocation he had
ever seen. Of course, man will not
he mean enough to say, "I told you
so! ' That would he foreign to his
nature. Hut still he is going lo do
the proper thing and use this incident
as an argument against other femine
practices that amaze when they do not
affright him. There is, for example,
lhe custom of filling the mouth with
hairpins when the coiffure is being
made. The capacity of the feminine
mouth for such storage lias long amazed men, no tess than woman's ability to carry on a long conversation
and articulate just as distinctly as if
the speech had a clear track. That
can he pointed out as dangerous now,
and maybe some heed will be paid to
masculine warnings. And certainly
the universal custom of woman, when
doing a little plain sewing at home, of
putting pins in her mouth as a substitute for a pincushion, cannot bo
called entirely safe nfter tliis accident
from lhe far less deadly clothespin.

BRITISH HARVESTERS
IN CANADA
By One of Them
Much has been written and more
spoken regarding'the British harvesters who this year went to Canada
to work on the fields of the Western
prairies.
Some of the criticism has been adverse; and in this respect It is necessary to point out that, whereas the
failure—the man who has not done
his work nor ever intended to—has
received all the publicity, and perhaps
even sympathy, the other kind—the
hard-working, average Briton who
went out and did the job—has no fuss
to make, and sees no reason why what
he accomplished should appear in
print nt all. In fact, If asked, he
would tell you that he got the chance
of sonic work, and, of course, took It;
that's all.
Behind this bald statement there lies
a lot, and because the type of man
who did the work Is the true type,
and because therefore he Is not given
to self-advertisement, it would seem
to be a good thing to tell of what he
! actually accomplished in a new country and under entirely strange sur-
, roundlngs and circumstances.
When  the scheme  was  advertised,
and men learnt that for    £12    they
could get lo Canada and find immedi-
! ate work at from 15s. to £ 1 per day
I wailing for them, there was a sulll-
cient rush to keep the shipping coin-
I panies  busy.      From  all over Great
I Britain and Ireland applications poured in, and never a ship left for the St.
1 Lawrence ports without its full coni-
I plement   of   steerage   passengers,   lit)
per cent, of whom were bent on the
harvest fields of Canada.
|    Naturally these ships were packed.
j Each carries from 1,000 to 1,500 steer-
' age passengers when full   up,   and
though tills may seem an extravagant
j number  to  accommodate   within   the
limits of the third-class space on a
liner,  life  was  not  entirely  unbearable for those concerned.
Each man had a bunk to sleep in,
and  plenty of blankets    and    clean

sheets on hla bed; he wns given good
food and lots of it; there was decii
space so that he need not lack for
fresh air; whilst amongst the crowd
there was ,as a rule, an astonishing
amount of talent, and concerts and
dances were of daily occurrence. Nobody had a dull time on the way out,
though when sea-sickness came upon
us, as it did after passing Ireland,
the discomfort was intense. Such a
crowd can be entirely unpleasant under the circumstances .and there is
no escape.
Arrived at Quebec, there were
special trains waiting to convey the
harvesters to Winnipeg. Comfortable
trains, these, nud they waisted no time
on the road. They got there as quickly as the trans-continental expresses,
passing through two thousand odd
miles of the most glorious country a
man could wish to set eyes on. The
days were warm and sunny, and ut
night there was a tang in the air
which made one glad to be alive.
Winnipeg came at last, and here
the responsibility of the railway was
at an end; so far a man could go for
his £12 (approximately 5,"00 miles),
and from there on to the place where
his work was to be done he paid tils
own fare, but at a reduced rate of half
a cent, or about a farthing, a mile.
The railway found work for most of
the harvesters, and they continued
their journey that evening or the following day, AJJ down the line the
trains were boarded at each stop by
farmers looking for labor, and even ii:
the early days of August as much as
$4.50 and $5 per day was being offered
in some places, though again one
hears of men who only got $3.50; the
average, however, was $4.
Arrived on the farms, the real test
began. Here were men of every kind
and condition. The public schools
and the professions were represented,
whilst at the other end of the line
were street corner touts and worse.
No wonder there were failures! No
wonder some gave un with broken
hearts after the first week, for the
work wns certainly hard on Ihe man
unused to manual labor.     There was

no "going sick." The work was there
to be done, and the time to do it in
very limited; so that unless the hired
man could do his $4 worth per day
every day he wus no use, and since
the farmer, of Western Canad is not
a philanthropist he looked very like
being (Ired unless he could force ills
aching muscles Into action each
morning at 6 a.m. aud keep them going until knocktng-off time.
A Heal Test of Manhood
This was a real test of manhood.
Nobody who has not tried it can possibly realise quite how dlllieull it Is "
for the first week, or just what a man
unused to the work goes through,; hut
surely the Old Country can say her
sons never let ber down, when statistics show that only 3 per cent, of the
total number of the British harvesters failed to make good. Neither,
considering these figures, need any
many who is physically fit be afraid
to go out and ilo the same next year.
It will do him a world of good, and ai
long as his heart is sound lie need not
fear anything Canada has to show
him.
Tbe Canadian farmer, taken on the
whole, is a good fellow. lie knew
perfectly well that the men from
"home" were mostly unused to work,
and he therefore gave them a good
chance to show what they were made
of. Xow this cost him money which
he could ill afford, and In many cases
which he need not have spent, for he
could have got experienced men wbo
would have done from the very beginning what the new had took some
days to get into; but he honestly
tried to help the new men, and as
long as he saw they were triers and
not slackers generally, let them down
easy for a week or so. One can guess
that he knew pretty well how they
felt .and perhaps admired the smile
on their lips, though their backs felt
as if they were breaking.
Cutting and stooking are the two
main jobs of the harvester, and to the
men from Britain mainly fell the unskilled and monotonous task of stooking; but labor was scarce in spile
of the extra help, and the likely-looking and intelligent were in many eases
told off to work a binder. And so
It came about that as the season advanced and the harvest in the south
came to an end, the men who moved
north1 with the work became ever and
ever more experienced. In a couple
of months some of them were capable
of taking on any job.     .Men who had

MAJOR BURDE FLAYS
AMERICAN OPERATORS
During the course of an argumenl
In the Provincial Legislature on
lumber manufacture In this province
last Friday afternoon, according to
a report in Saturday's Victoria Colonist, Major Burde declared that his district of Alberni embraced two-thirds
of Vancouver island and in it there
was more lumber than the combined
ridings of Comox and Cowichan. li
waa because of that fact that he was
interested in the questions before the
House. He admitted that as a member he was dependent upon the votes
of the men In the logging camps and
mills. Those men, he asserted, knew
of the wasteful methods of thc lumber
operators and looked to the time when
the devastation of the forests, now
taking place, would steal away their
employment. He asserted wide
swathes of forest are being cut and
the lnml left will grow nothing, ami
offers no living to any but the Japanese, In his riding there is estimated
to be forty billion feet of mercantable
timber, and this, if cut at the rate of
a million and a half feet per day.
would be gone in forty years. If
plans now underway by lumbermen
are carried out, that magnificent resource would be disposed of In less
time.
Major Burde referred to a "Mr.
Hummingbird"   from   Spokane,   who
bad told the workers at the Chemainus lumber mill that they did not
want the eight-hour day and who had
threatened the Legislature that if tliat
were granted he would starve those
same workers to death.
I want to hear of any honest-to
God Canadian mill operator who seeks
to have Ibis export of logs continued.'
declared Major Burde ,who asserted
that the transportation companies ami
"a few Hummingbirds, Weyerbueus-
ers, and other Yankee operators who
Hit over here from Washington," wero
1 tbe only ones to benefit.
Alberui's member referred to news.
paper criticisms <>f bis recent statement that Tnited States lumber was
being brought across to the Sidney
mill to be manufactured, and claimed
thai such lumber was entering Canada, not necessarily British Columbia.
"He had stated before ,and would •'c-
peal It, that about 80 per cent, of tlio
money spent in the lumbering industry goes for wages and 50 per cent,
of that went to Orientals.
"I do approve in priciple that we
should investigate this question* but
1 we have been here four years and
we don't seem to get anywhere," declared   Major   Burde,   who   asserted
. that the Minister of Lands had stated
\ that lie was aiming at taking action
lo pit vent export of timber and bave
; the lioiiie product manufactured hi
British Columbia . The trouble with
thc  minister   was  that   he  had  been
aiming when he should shoot. He
said the minister had referred to the
large stand of timber in Oregon, but
he had failed to state that the State_
Government kept most of it under
reverse while the "Yankee" operators came into British Columbia ami
curried away the timber here.
The character of the literature Issued by the Ueparment of Lands was
also attacked by Alberni's member,
who referred to one publication, the
front page of which was adorned with
poetry, and in which it hud been
stated, he said, that employees of the
department had so little to do that
they had decided to issue the paper.
"1 suggest that the woman member
for Vancouver could get some good
material for the farm right in that
department. The Government service
would not miss them aud. perhaps,
they might do some good in those
logged off lauds we are getting because of those operations of foreigners." said Major Burde.
"if your poets and artists know
these facts, it Is time for an Investigation ot your department," the member said to Hon. Mr. Pattullo, referring to a cartoon lie had seen tn one
issue of the paper depicting a man
setting fire to the forest in order,
later, to be employed by the Government lu fighting it.
and family journal. As each year
succeeded another it seemed that as
far as was humanly possible the
point of perfection hnd been reached,
but inevitably this astonishingly progressive paper would launch some
new feature and make improvements
here and there that would add Immeasurably to Its attractiveness and
value. And so, for the coming season all who wisely subscribe to the
old reliable Family Herald and Weekly Star may depend upon receiving
even greater value than in the past,
with many pleasant surprises thrown
In. One of the nice surprises this
year is a most beautiful picture of a
remarkably lovely woman .entitled
"The Wonderful Heroine." which will
be given'free to each new subscriber
and to each present subscriber who
renews in time for another yea:'.
Truly this is value heaped up, pressed down and running over.
Tbe remarkable life of the beautiful and heroic woman who is the subject of the painting has been published in booklet form, and our readers
may obtain a copy free by sending

PRINCE RUPERT, the terminus of the Canadian National Railway*
in Northern British Columbia, has come to the fore of recent years
ra^T 01S . n Pr™lQ\. Ash-Producing areas of the Dominion of
Canada. Prince Rupert halibut is known all over the American continent, and the industry has reached large proportions because of the
distribution service p aced at the disposal of the fishermen at that port
by the Canadian National Railways.
ct nPfl °,le.fe?sc"tiaI in the fishi"! industry is the speedy marketing
of the fish after they are caught. By means of a rapid express service
over the Canadian National, halibut and other fish from Prince Runert
are laid down in Winnipeg, Montreal, Toronto and other Canadian and
America cities very quickly after they are landed from the fishing
boats in Prince Rupert harbor.
Halibut fishery is the chief sea industry of Prince Runert and dur
Ing 1922, 25,275,300 lbs. of halibut were landed at that port In addition, 33,225,300 lbs of salmon were caught and large quantities of
herring, cod, flat fish and crabs.l The cod and herring fisheries, which
have scarcely been touched as yet, hold a great future.

the halibut fisheries out of the port of Prince Rupert.

His Honor Judge Barker lias rendered his decision in favor of the corporation of the city of Port Alberni
in tiie recent licensing case heard before lilm iu the County Court of Alberni. The charge was originally
laid by the city treasurer against Mr.
C. A. Bate of .Nanaimo. thnt he was
selling motor vehicles in the municipality without having (irst obtained a
license from the municipality as called for by the by-laws. The case wns
heard before Magistrate J. A. Mclntyre who decided in favor of the municipality and lined the defendant $,",i>
and costs. Mr. Arthur Lelghton, ol
Nanaimo, who was acting for B.itc,
appealed the.case to tho County Court
anil, at the hearing held in Alberni ou
the 7til of November, counsel for appellant admitted tbat a sale hail taken
place but that his client was fully
protected under lhe Provincial Motor
Vehicle Act, and that it was not necessary for him to obtain a municipal
license. L. Arnold Hanna ucted on
behalf of the city. The action was
regarded as a test case as apparently
similar proceedings are pending in
other municipalities awaiting tbe outcome of this case', His Honor reserved bis decision at lhe hearing in
order to look thoroughly into the provincial act and city by-law and has
now handed down bis decision in favor
of the city of Port Alberni.
That the Sumas reclamation scheme
will be a great success is the opluoin
of Mr, Alex. Paterson, M. P..P., fur
Delta, who is a successful farmer.
Mr. Paterson at first opposed the
scheme but is now convinced that the
area will be highly productive. He
had been of the opinion that tbe lake
bottom would not produce but he hail
yet to see a better stand of wheat than
was grown there.
