ROYSTON
THE PEOPLE AT ROYSTON
ARE SAYING—
That the python which appeared on
hoard thc British steamer the other
day has nothing on the sea serpent
which in out in the hay at Royston.
That after the sea serpent, it is customary for whale to appear.
That the three candidates for the
Mayoralty chair have been looking

and a good fight is expected on election day.     "
That one of the aspiring candidates

night to seo if a new Boulevard would
not bring the desired results.
That Ex-Mayor Roy has longing
eyes on the vacant chair and will no
doubt show some speed when the last
lap comes.
That a full meeting of the Council
will meet at an early date when the
aspirants will bo expected lo toe the
line and show the ladies what they can
do to make Koyslon the Blackpool of
the Pacific.
That tho beach at Royston is becoming more popular every day, judging
hy the crowds that come to bathe every
evening.
That Mayor Dowdall has been preparing his speech for the past three
weeks, and It will be a masterpiece,
judging by the dictionaries he Is devouring every hour.
That housebuilding is rapidly proceeding, and some of tho builders are
becoming expert with tho doitblo-
bladed axe.
That the two yachts at anchor are
likely to be put to sea any day and

That the Cumberland girls have
their weather eye open for the hoys

That tlie gentleman with the com

Mr, ;-i. H. Ansehell, provincial organizer of the Canadian JewisH Kellof
Fund, arrived in town Thursday In
connection witli efforts to arrange a
campaign to raise funds to help the
millions of human beings who are dying ot starvation and typhus In
Europe.
Appalling t'oiitlitluns.
Henry 1'. Davlsou, chairman of the
Board of Red Cross Societies, representing twenty-seven nations, says
that sixty-tive million people aro facing
starvation, and thousands upon thousands are dying of typhus, besides
millions of children dying In Central
and Eastern Europe.
The World's Problem.
"Wo are iu tlie presence of an emergency so groat tllat small ideas go
ill witii it. We cannot allo.w a plague-
spot between the Bait* and the Black
Sea to go uncloansed and hope ourselves to remain immune
Deadly Infections diseases leap
over national boundaries. Even tlle
sea ia no sure barrier to them, European typhus actually threatens this
continent."
These are tlie words of Dr. Cope-
land, the Health Commissioner of New
York, who was sent to investigate
conditions iu Eastern Europe, in order
to be able to gauge the full depth of
the awful conditions existing there,
and the steps necessary to prevent thc
spread of disease ou this continent.
VOTERS' LIST CLOSES^THURSDAY NEXT
OVER HALF THE PERSONS IN THE COMOX DISTRICT
WHO ARE ENTITLED t6 VOTE HAVE FAILED
TO TAKE THE NECESSARY STEPS TO HAVE
THEIR NAMES PLACED ON THE NEW VOTERS'
LIST—REGISTRATIONS CANNOT BE RECEIVED
AFTER THURSDAY NEXT.
Only two thousand five hundred citizens in the whola
.Comox Electoral District have their registration forms in
the hands of the District Registrar, Mr. John Baird. Thousands of people apparently are indifferent at present about
getting their names on the Voters' List, but unless they
wake up and sign the necessary form, when the interest
and excitement of election time arrives, they will not have
a vote.
From present indications the new list will have considerable bearing on the future of this Province and Dominion.
In a couple of months the Prohibition Referendum is to take
place, unless the government delays it. A provincial election is almost a certainly in the near future, and a Dominion
election is in the air. It is said by those in authority that
this list will be utilized for the three events.
Those entitled to vote, should realize the importapce of
getting on the roll at once—there are only four more days
left in which to do so. All registration forms must be in
the hands of the District Registrar by July 15.
FIRE CHIEF QUENCHES
FIRE BEFORE BRIGADE
PUTS IN APPEARANCE
But Mr. Banks Mildly Indignant
at Fire Starting on Roof
of His House.
Mr. T. E. Banks, who among his
many other activities is also Fire
Chief of the local Fire Brigade, feels
that the lire which started on the roof
of his house at 6.45 o'clock Thursday
evening, used very poor judgment—
almost as had as picking the pocket of
the Chief of 1'olice!
A spark evidently had lodged close
lo a chimney and ignited the shingles.
Tlie lirst Intimation the family had
of the occurrence was when lite telephone operator called up Mrs. Banks
and asked her if she was aware her
house was on lire! Mrs. Banks did
not know. The family were having
supper at the time.
At tlie same lime an alarm had been
sent in for the Fire Brigade and in
a short time the brigade had manned
the'truck and rushed to the scene of
tiie fire—but they were too late! Mr.
Banks in-Ihe meantime had quenched
the lire with the use of the garden
hose.

NANAIMO OUT-SWATS
LOCAL BALL TOSSERS
With  Very  Strong Team,  the
Hub City Boys Win Game
By Five Runs to Three
The local baseball players are to he
congratulated on the excellent showing they made against the formidable
Nanaimo team, being beaten by the
narrow margin of 5 to 3. A team
which had been chosen from Ave different clubs represented the hub city.
The local boys showed .them a few
things at that. Boyd, pitcher, for
Cumberland, struck out 15 men during
the game of nine Innings, whilst Ferguson, pitching for Nanaimo, was only
able to strike out three men. Had
Boyd received the assistance from IiIb
delders, Cumberland surely would
havo won.
The following players did duty for
Cumberland: Boyd, Harrison, Bannerman, Millard, Westfield, Lapsansky, Hunden, Beattle, Robertson.
GAME TOMORROW
The Courtenay team is duo here tomorrow, to play the local boys on the

METHODIST CHURCH NWES.
The boys and girls interested in the
.Methodist Church are enjoying the
Junior Congregation held every Sunday morning at 11 o'clock. Rev. Mr.
Kinney, who has had considerable success with young people and children's
work, is conducting this morning service along original Hne3, making the
talks interesting by object lessons.
.Mothers are especially invited to bring
the little folks to this service.
The Orangemen are holding their
anniversary church service next Sun-
and Old Sol day ^veiling at 7 o'lock in the Grace
Methodist Church.
VICTORIA.—R. T. Elliott, K.C.,
must pay all the costs of the Ollver-
Elllott libel suit which was won last
week by the premier with a verdict of
25 cents damages.
This'was the decision of Mr. Justice
Macdonald of the Supreme Court. The
costs will be heavy.
H, A. Maclean, K.C., counsel for Mr.
Elliott, claimed that although the
premier got the verdict it did not
mean that Mr. Elliott, the loser, should
hear the costs. Mr. Maclean tjuoted
section 73 of the Supreme Court Act.
"This shows thnt If you recover no
more than $50 ln an action in court
you are not entitled to costs," said
Mr. Maclean.
He explained that there are three
kinds of damages: 1, contemptuous
damages, where a shilling or so is
awarded; nominal damages, where 40
shillings are awarded; and punitive
damages, where thc award Is more
than 40 shillings. He asserted that although M. B. Jackson, K.C., M.P.P.,
counsel for the premier, right up to
the very last of the case urged punitive damages on the jury, the jury
gave him only contemptuous damages.
Mr. Maclean proposed that at least It
should be no worse than both parties
bearing their own costs.
Mr. Justice Macdonald did not think
It necessary even to hear Mr. Jackson
oppose the claim ot Mr. Maclean.
"I think it clearly a case where tin
plaintiff Is entitled to costs," said the
judge.
COURTENAY POLICE
TOOK LONG CHANCE
Fired Gun at Retreating "Black
Jack" Players Whom He
Suddenly Confronted.
When Chief of Police Dryden of
Courtenay jumped through a back
window right into a group of citizens
who were enjoying a quiet game of
"black-jack," in the back of the Riverside Hotel on Dominion Day eve, he
came like a bolt from tlie blue. Before the players had recovered ho had
collected all the loose change there
was on the table, presumably as evidence and had told those present to
stay until he had got their names and
numbers. Most of them did, but two
mud" a break for a back exit. According to Chief Dryden's story, he called
on them twice to stop, and when they
did not he pulled his gun and fired In
tbo direction In wblch they had gone.
The hole in the door standa In mute
witness of tlie affair, at abou t the
height of a man's chest, and if either
of the citizens wiio had departed so
hastily had taken less haste to get
away or had decided to return and see
how things were developing they
would undoubtedly have got punctured. .
The police commissioners of the city
have not taken any action lu the matter yet, but havo It under consideration. As the matter stands, Chief
Dryden is ln possession of tho "bank"
and there's a neat little bole drilled in
a back door ln the Riverside Hotel.—

CARRIAGE OF ORIENT MAH
VANCOUVER-Refusal of the Ca
nadian Pacific to continue currying
Oriental mall Is said locally to be due
to the great and constant increase in
the American mails for thc Orlen

Montreal Indicates tllat the company
will carry purely Canadian mail for
the Far East for the reduced subsidy
offered by the government.
Council Meeting
The regular fornightly meeting ol
the City Council was. held on Monday
last, making the fifth Monday in succession ou which a meeting has been
held. , ,
His Worship Mayor McDonald occu
pled tlie mayoral chair, while Aldermen Piket, Bannerman, Wier, Thorn
son, Parnham and Brown and City
Cloik Mordy were also iu attendance
Nothing of a very contentious nature
was before ilio council. The usual
routine business wns dealt with.
Health Officer's Report.
The report' of Medical Health Officer
Dr. E. R. Hicks was before the council,
and read as follows:
During the lirst two months of the
year there wero no infectious In th.
city. About the 1st of March Influenza
made Its appearance iu tho district,
being brought here by a family who
had recently arrived from England.
It waa prevalent in tho city during
March and the early part of April.
There were 79 caseB in the city, with
no deaths. In the w.holo district, including Bevan, Union Bay, Royston,
Minto, Camp and the New Townsite,
thero were about 400 cases, with one
death. In the 1918 epidemic there
wero over 1600 ases, with 28 deaths.
In nearly all cases thoso attacked
were persons who were not Infected
in the 1918 epidemic. There were a
few exceptions, but iu those cases the
attacks seemed milder.
Mumps'has been epidemic lu the district since the early part of March,
and Is still prevalent in the city.
Thero were two cases of erysipelas
in the district, one ln the city and one
In the New Townsite. Both made
good recoveries.
Measles, which has been epidemic In
Victoria and Nanaimo, has made Its
appearance at Union Bay, Courtenay
and Camp, and no doubt will be showing itself in the city.
To Analyze Milk.
Some aldermen being suspicious of
the purity ot some milk delivered ln
town, the council decided to have the
Health Officer analyze samples.
I'lilancinl.
Miscellaneous accounts were before
the Council and after consideration
were referred to the Finance Commlt-
tco for endorsement before being paid.
The Finance Committee reported
a sum of about $8000 iu tlie bank; after various bills have been paid there,
will be lu the neighborhood of $6100.
The, council, ou the motion of Aid.
Brown, seconded by Aid. Wier, decided
lo reduce the bank'overdraft ot $3000
by $2500.
Hoard ol Works.
Aid. Thomson reported progress on
Dunsmuir Avenue. He said Mr.
Walker, the superintendent of the
Barrett Company, supplying the "Tarvia" to the city, had been In town Inspecting the street and thought the
work was quite all right. It only
needed a little "binding," he said, on
top, after which the "Tarvia" could
be applied and a good road should result. Mr. Walker gave much Information and encouragement to the Board
of Works, though lie said they should
not expect too mucii from the first
oiling.
Fire Wardens.
For the Fire Wardens, Aid. Brown
reported six hydrants needed repairing; also that tiiey should he painted
a uniform color-red and while. ThlH
wll lbc attended to.
The cause of city water boirfg slight
ly discolored, said Aid. Bannerman,
was the clearing up of the dam, which
will he attended to.
One or two uldermen would have
had further dlBClission on the Licence
Bylaw, but Ills Worship and some
aldermen thought as the matter was
now settled the matter should In.
dropped.

The 1920 strawberry season at Gordon Head and Keating is coming to a
sudden end, officials of the Fruitgrowers' Association say. The crop this
year is only 60 per cent, of a crjp.
This is because of weather conditions.
The growers are letting out the 300
girls who are picking berries in the
district, although many of the girls
only started last week. Tho berries
will continue to come iu for the next
ten days, they say, but the quantity

Sir—I think that the City Council
is to be commended for the passing of
the Beverage Licence Bylaw, 1920,
even If it was only done by the casting vote of the Mayor. I believe that
am correct when 1 say that it meets
with tlie approval of the majority of
tlie residents (and It Is the majority
that counts, these days) of Cumberland, and more particularly by the
taxpayers who arc called upon to grin
and bear the ever Increasing load of
taxes that arc being imposed on this
ommunlty of property owners, 38 or
39 mills, which is it? Think of it, and
compare it with tlie rale at Courtenay,
wliieh 1 am Informed is 22 mills.
I refer particularly to Clause Six in
the said bylaw, which calls for the
licence fee of $200 being placed upon
the vendors of "near beer." Tho collection of the above by the city should
have tlie effect of either bringing about
a reduction iu the rate of taxation, or
be of considerable assistance towards
increased efficiency, in the administration of city affairs.
lu passing this by-law the city are
inly following upon a precedent tiiat
has already been and is being adopted
by other municipalities of this province.
Of course tlie iioteikeepers were up

cil. That, was naturally tn he expected-hit a man's pocket and he
wlll. whether right or wrong, invariably register n kick. But 1 fall to see
where he Is Imposed upon or unfairly
treated.  _
The fixing of a yearly licence fee of
oo on the sale ot "near beer" practically prohibits lbc handling of that
particular beverage by restaurants, ice
i-renui, randy and other stores In town,
which' no doubt must be collectively
considerable, and gives to tlie hotel-
keepers a monopoly on tlie sale of Unit
popular drink.   Yours truly,

LAMBETH CONFERENCE
Matters of World-Wide Importance Coming Up for Consideration This Week
I-'rom the lirst in 1867 the Lambeth
Conferences have been held at intervals of about ten years (in 1878, 1SSS,
1897, 191)8), the oue now being held
having been postponed from 1918 on
account of the war. Beginning witli
an atteudauce of seventy-six Bishops,
the number has' gradually increased,
until this year nearly three hundred
arc expccled to be present. This will
be the lirst time that the same Arcli
bishop of Canterbury has presided
over a second conference. Dr. Long
ley, Dr. Tait, Dr. Benson, Dr. Temple
each presided at one; this will be Dr
Davidson's second. The influence of
the Conference is very great.
Among the subjects to be considered
at this Conference are: Christianity
and International Relations; The
Christian Faith in Relation to Spiritualism, Christian Science, Theosophy;
Our Relation to aud Reunion with
Other Churches;- Missionary Problems; The Position of Women In Ihe
Councils and Ministrations of tho
Church; The Opportunity and Duty of
tne Church In Regard to Industrial
and Social Problems; Problems of
Marriage, etc.
The lirst week of July is deyoted to
the presentation of the various sub-
lects; the next fortnight to their consideration by the several committees
to which they are referred; then will
follow another fortnight of consldera
tion by the Conference of the reports
or the various committees with., the
resolutions they recommend for adoption. On Sunday, August s,- mere
will bo a concluding service in St
Paul's Cathedral—Canadian Churchman.
SWAT THE ROOSTER
Absolute Waste  to Keep  Male
Bird With Hens After the
Breeding Season.
The presence of male birds in the
flock during the summer months ha;
a decidedly detrimental effect upon
the quality of eggu, and poultry pro
ducers lose many thousands of dollar:
annually through the presence of par
tially incubated and bad eggs in the
produce they market. ReportB are
now being received from all parts of
the country of the number of partially
Incubated eggs appearing in current
receipts. Producers do not realize
that it is unnecessary for a fertile egg
to be placed under a broody hen to
cause the germ to grow; a temperature of seventy degrees is sufficient to
start incubation. If the heat is con
stant the development of the chick will
continue, but if it ceases or is inter
mittent, putrefaction at once sets in
and the egg becomes bad. Such eggs
have no place or value in shipments,
and should they get to the consumer
the consumptive demand Immediately
falls off.
.Here Money for Infertile Kggs.
The male bird is not essential in
egg production; his usefulness is over
when the supply of fertile eggs for the
season has been secured. The hens
wll! lay just as many eggs when the
male bird has been removed and the
eggs will be more sutiable for consumption, packing or storing. Further, there Is a distinct financial gain
to the producer who markets infertile
eggs, because the best trade in many
cities offers a premium of from one to
live cents a dozen for infertile eggs.
Serious Economic "Waste.
Then there is the question of feed.
It costs money to feed poultry, and
With feed at Its present value the consumption of feed by males kept for no
particular purpose is a serious economic waste. Thc reason for this is
that the best prices for live and
dressed fowl prevail in the spring and
early summer. During the summer
Ihe price declines, and hy the early
fall when many producers decide to
market their male birds, a lower price
than prevailed In the spring has to
be accepted; the producer thus losing
tho amount per pound the market has
declined, plus the value of the feed
consumed by tlie birds during the summer months. This flanclal loss takes
on a more serious aspect when it is
coupled with the amount charged back
by tlie whosesaler for thc bad and
partially incubated eggs that have
been marketed.
Farmers and others selling eggs for
market should, therefore, need no
urging to kill off, dispose of, or at
least remove the male birds from tlie
flock after the breeding season.
"Gracious! Thirty cents a box for
thoso strawberries? Why, they're such
miserable little,( half-ripe things thoy
would sure give one the colic."
But look at de size o' do boxes,
lady," returned tho huckster. "Youse
don't get enough o' dem to do youse
any harm."
Life is full of uncertainties, even lo
those who expect tho worst.

Island of Phosphate.
A little island, a mere dot of land
barely live miles in circumference,
standing alone In the wide Pacilic, is
likely to save the world from starva
tion.
Ocean Island, by which name it is
known, is nothing more than a vast
deposit of exceedingly rich phosphate
of lime, a pinch of which will enable
any plant, in any soil, to double its
fertility, It is the llnest fertilizer, and
valuable ulso to chemists in tlie mak
ing of munitions, matches and a host
of other articles. Ocean Island played
iis part in helping us lo win the war,
and now It Is lo come to our aid ln
combating the serious shortage of food
with which Ihe world is faced.
Thousands of years ago countless
myriads of sea birds, undisturbed hy
the presence of man or animal, made
this vast coral rock their home, and
created vast deposits of guano, which,
mingling with the coral rock, so rich
iu lime, and aided by other agencies,
produced a phosphate—a buff-colored
rock that contains all thc essential
virtues of a prime soil fertilizer. It Is
almost magical In the harvests it produces.
The island is a Britisli possession
and the richest tract of land for its
size under the Union Jack.
How its rich beds of phosphate were
discovered is one of the great ro
mances of industry. Some years ago
the Pacific Island Trading and Guano
Company, a New Zealand concern,
had an unpretentious office in a back
c-treet in Sydney, New South Wale:
A buff-colored, irregular shaped piece
of rock kept the front door open. This
little bit of rock held its humble post
tion for many years, kicked here,
tossed there, sometimes taken up and
examined curiously, but always
turned to its lowly occupation.
Key tu a Treasure.
One day a man who waa interested
in guano, and knew a little about
rock-phosphate, put the block in his
pocket and walked off to his tiny bedroom ln a lodging-house. Here he
subjected the rock to a series of tests,
and in a few days was so amazed and
satisfied with the results that he has
tened lo the office to trace the history
of the door-stopper.
The only thing he could learn about
It was that it had been brought from
Ocean Island by a trader. Off he went
to the island by the first tradini
schooner available, to return a few
mouths later and announce that the
piece of rock which was used to keep
open the office door was the key to a
treasure Island containing millions of
tons of high-grade phosphate of lime.
Australian capitalists were offered
the chance of forming a company to
work the newly-discovered phosphate
fields, but they turned the proposition
down.
Sow n Busy City.
A group of London flananciers were
then approached, who, realizing the
possibilities of phosphate rock as a
fertilizer, accepted the proposal. On
this lonely and despised Pacific Island
they have built up a vast Industrial
settlement, a miniature city, throbbing
with all the accessories of a great
commercial enterprise. Day and night
there are the mighty crash and whir of
machinery, the shrill shrieks of locomotives, the deafening rattle of trucks
rushing along the railways loaded
with the precious phosphate for the
crushers, dyers and bins, where it is
treated and made ready for the tramp
steamerB which carry It to every nation actively engaged in agriculture.
Over two thousand native .laborers
principally recruited from the Gilbert
and Elllce Islands, are engaged in tlie
Industry, under the supervision of a
staff of highly-skilled white men.
Richest Satires in the World.
Although the birds were responsible
for its rich treasure of phosphate,
none are found on the Island today,
except the imported domestic fowl.
The total native population, a very
picturesque race, numbers only BOO
souls, and they are the wealthiest natives In the world. Much of the land
still belongs to them, while by arrangement with the British government the company working the phosphate fields has to pay a royalty of
slxpense on every ton shipped, which
is used by the Administration for the
benefit of the island natives.—Tit-Bits.

LIGHTING
In the old days of lighting, chandeliers were put up
to stay!
They were considered as permanent a part of the
house as the fireplace or the kitchen sink.
They were called "fixtures."
Walls might be re-papered, decorations and hangings
made over in newer style, but the ugly chandeliers with
their dus't-catching whirligigs and spangles remained
unchanged, defying the march of time.
Even after the advent of electricity, folks continued
to look upon the lighting, fixture as something fixed.
But Dame Fashion, in collaboration with the scientists
who are constantly making improvements in electric
lamps, has now taken charge of the lighting business.
She has given us fashions in lights—just as we have
fashions in hats and gowns.
Lamp shades change from season to season, and
from year to year.
*pauuB[*3 eq -jou op 'a8A9M0H     the shifting styles in
ment and economy of electric lamps,

Each change of fixtures and lamps means that the
householder will have more or better light, or cheaper
light—and frequently such a change means all three.

CENTRE OF FINANCE
(Toronto Mall aud Empire)
It is not too much to say that the
recent statement of the Chancellor of
tho Exchequer amazed the world by its
showing of Groat Britain's tinancial
position and her plans for tho future.
Few people had any idea whatever
that sho had made such strido toward
tho recovery of her pro-war status,
In recuperative powers no othor country has shown anything approaching
those of Great Britain. Now arises an
American writer, Mr. B. M. Talbot, to
tell the American people, through tho
columns of tho Sun and New York
Herald, that London, aud not New
York, is the centre of finance, and that
nothing is more unlikely than that the
United States will evor wrest this
sceptre from England. The notion
that Britain, had passed her zenith as
a great tinancial power arose in the
popular mind when she wus shipping
gold to New York and when she was
borrowing from the United States,
Tlie tremendous expenso and wastage
of thc war were considered fitting reu
sons for Great Britain abdicating tho
tinancial position sho had held for
centuries. But it appears now_ that
these expectations—perhaps In some
quarters thoy wore hopes—aro baseless.
Factors In Siinrcniac).
British trade is mounting rapidly to
the volume that existed before thc
war; but Mr. Talbot points out that to
be the financial centre of the worlds
It is not necessary that a nation shall
be also the trade centre of the world.
It need not be the place where the
most goods are manufactured or
shipped to other countries.   Ho says:
"To be the tinancial centre London
or New York must have • tho best
facilities for handling the business
transactions necessary iu order tbat
goods may be exchanged between one
country and another. There must be
smooth working banking machinery
lirst of all. That condition is so broad
as to be nearly all inclusive. It involves properly operated money markets, stock and commodity exchanges,
brokerage facilities, stable currency,
broad bill market and numerous other
services, such as may be found within
a narrow radius of Wall Street or
Lombard Street Insurance is another
Important factor. Tariff laws are another. t
The Spirit of Adventure.
Last of all and most important of
all, perhaps, is the spirit of restless
adventure on the part of capital. Capital ls notoriously timid, but American
capital la scared pink in comparison
with British capital. The Idea compared by the famous heading in Ihe
Literary Digest, "Hawked, the Britisher, Who Took Chances Liko a
Yank," does not apply to finance.
American capital does not take chances
liko British capital, not because it is
inherently more timorous, but because
it does not need to tako chauces. It
makes Its investments at home. As
Mr. Talbot says, when America needs
cotton, she finances it in the Southeastern States. Britain has to go to
the United States or to Egypt. America's oil, tin, iron ore, cereals, timber,
tobacco and other products can be
financed within her own borders, while
Britain hns to go to the ends of the
earth.. If her capital is to be employed at all it must seek far-away
fields. Every nation in history that
waB made at one time or another thc
tfnanclal centre of the world sent ships
to distant shores to traffic with unknown races. This is why the great
maritime powers have always been the
great money powers from Byzantium
down to Holland and Spain.
The Flag Follow* Trade.
In olden times capital used to follow
the flag. First there would ho a war
aud an army of occupation, then the
tradesmen would follow. Nowaday
the flag is more likely to follow thp
trader. In this furthering of foreign
trade. Mr. Talbot says thnt the British
have much heifer hanking facilities,
and, qt course, an Incomparable merchant marine. Nevertheless, Britain
!*,*ad lo construct these tools. She had
to meet and defeat compel itlon from
prance, Holland. Spain, and, more recently, Germany. He believed that
England's geographical position has
had much to do with her financial position. For many generations her livelihood has not been drawn from her
own soil. She has been compelled to
send her traders to all parts of tin*
world to bring hack necessary* supplies. Tho time came whon they
brought back more than England needed for herself, and this surplus was
then aciit in her ships lo other countries and sold. Her barter and, trad"
had reached such proportions In Napoleon's time that he referred to England as a "nation of shlpkoepers."
She was a nation of shopkeepers, just
as Bhe was a nation with the greatest
nnvy Irf tho world, because Bho had to
be In ordor to remain a free pciplo.
BREAD BITS
Ordinary white bread contains 40
per cent, of water.
The "fat" in bread is Just 1 per cent
of its total ingredients. The rest is
made up ot protein (the basis of lite),
starch, sugar, dextrin, cellulose (indigestible), and mineral matter.
New, moist bread Is exceedingly
hard to digest, because it produces no
appreciable flow of saliva in the moutli
during maBtlcatlon. A slice of ordinary old bread is not digested until It
lias been In the stomach two and a
halt hours.
During tho process of linking, bread
loses a large quantity of its nutri
(petit. Just short of three-quarters of
tho "far is lost, and an inroad is made
on the protein, etc.
Wheat can be eaten in Its entire
state if snaked for a long time in wa-
lor, then boiled iu milk, and sugar
added.   TnTs is "frumenty."
Real brown bread is made from
stone-ground Hour, manufactured
from tho whole grain.
An expert has stated that If this
wholemeal bread had beon eaten aud
whlto bread forbidden, the prosent
national decay of teeth would never
liavo happened.
Flour made from (lie wholo grain
lias twice the protein and only a third
of the water in ordinary "while" flour.
Bread is such an excellent food because but i'k per cent, of Its solids
escape absorption by tlie body.
If milk were drunk with bread prac
tlcally every crumb would be absorbed
In nutriment.
ALBERTA LIQUOR
LAW ULTRA  VIRES
Supreme Court Concure in the
Original Finding in Gold
Seal Liquor Case
EDMONTON.—The light of the Gold
Seal Liquor Co. of Calgary against
the recent legislation onactod by tho
provincial government making the importation and exportation of liquor in
the provinco of Alberta illegal has
been definitely settled in the supreme
court. Justice Hyndman concure in
the finding of Justices Beck and Ives
and declared tho legislation ultra
vires of the powers of tho local house.
Tho action brought by the Calgary
liquor concern against tho Dominion
Express Co. for refusing to carry
packages containing liquor bus boon
bitterly contested in the Alberta
courts. The appellate division of tho
supreme court at first divided equally
on the question, Chief Justice Harvey
and Mr. Justice Stuart holding that
the act was quite within the powers
of tho houso, while Justices Bock and
Ives hold that It waB beyond the powers nf tire house.
The case waa re-argued in tho Edmonton court before Mr. Justice Hyndman, thc point at issue, being confined
entirely to the question of the constitutionality of thc act.
Notwithstanding tho ruling of tho
appollato division, tho locks are still
on the doors of the liquor company's
warehouses in Alberta. It is regarded
as a certainty, however, that the do-
ctelon means that the wholesale liquor
business will revert to the old order of
things.

Britain owes much to ber hankers.
As thc American writer says,' the
United Slates has few such born bankers as Ihe Goshcns, thc Cunllffes and
Ihe Rothschilds. But Reginald Mc-
Kenua, who Is now recognized as one
of the greatest bankers lu the world,
was a politician only a few years ago.
I'his Inference is that one docs not require a lifetime to become* u great
banker. Is there any likelihood of the
tinancial centre shifting permanently?
Well, tiie steam vessel built up the
Western Hemisphere, and an Invention
that would shift millions of population
might very well shift the financial
centre with them. Britain will never
be bankrupt unless some catastrophe
should flverwhelm Europe, and she
might even then ride out the storm as
she has suryived other European cataclysms. Her loans through the war
amount to ahout $8,330,600,000, Thc
American loans arc about a billion
dollars greater, and Include four and

If Britain has to write off all her

THE VOTERS' LIST
Unless Commissioners are holding back registrations in
large numbers, it looks at present as If thousands of persons in the Comox Electoral District will not be included
ln the Voters' List. Up lo thc present the number of registrations received by Mr. John Baird, Registrar for the
Comox Electoral District is only about two thousand five
hundred. It ls estimated that there are about seven
thousand electors in this district, and with only tour days
to go before the list closes, but a little over one-third of
those persons have their registration forms in the bands
of the District Registrar.
The situation is undoubtedly serious, but It can hardly be
contended that the fault lies elsewhere than with the
electors themselves. While the time allowed by the government for compiling the Voters' List has been shorter
than usual, much publicity has been given to this matter.
Th« Prohibition Referendum vote and Provincial and
Dominion elections will be here shortly, and thousands of
British Columbia citizens are going to be without a vote.
If they have not got sufficient Interest in the country's
welfare to take the slight trouble to sign an application
form, little sympathy will be extended them when they
have to obey the results of thc other fcllow'B vote.
EMPIRE NEEDS GREAT NAVY
Premier William F. Massey, of New Zealand, declared in
a speech at an entertainment given by the Savage Club,
that the British Navy "mu3t be supreme at all costs." "I
was one of those who at Paris thought the League of
Nations would in a few years be strong enough to exercise
a profound influence tn preventing war," he continued. "I
must now admit that the League of Nations is a great disappointment. We look around and see two great powers,
Japan and the United States, building bigger and more
powerful ships than ever. Those powers clearly do not
believe that the League of Nations can end war. It would
be calamitous If when war comes other nations should
possess more numerous and more powerful ships than
Orcat Britain, whose Empire depends on her sea power."
it. The policy which authorized Turkey to dominate and
fortify the two straits so that Russia could be hemmed In
from the Mediterranean was nothing else than stark insanity, since, on the face of it, it was bound to breed not
one war but a whole family of wars, the outcome of which
was sure to be a demonstration of its futility. The day in
which any nation, not to speak of a gigantic power like
Russia, can he kept In a condition of economic strangulation by such means beyond a very small time, has disappeared forever. By the treaty with Turkey thc Bosphorus
and Dardanelles are thrown open to the shipping of the
world and steps should be taken to insure the permanence
of this condition. It would not take anybody holding Constantinople long to make the Dardanelles impregnable;
indeed it could be done in a very few weeks. This is a
matter which concerns Russia more than it docs any other
country in Europe, and it is desirable, therefore, that when
she is ready to assume her international obligations she
will be a party to the agreement that thc two entrances to
her back yard shall remain unfortified.
THE DARDANELLES
q, (Victoria Times)
The fortifications along the Dardanelles have been destroyed and, for the sake of the peace of Europe, it is profoundly to be hoped their destruction ls permanent.
Some day Russia will enter upon an era of sane and sound
development and progress and the country around the
Black Sea, perhaps the richest section of land on earth,
will be producting In vast abundance goods for whtch
there will be a world-wide demand. Never again 'should
the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus be obstacles to the
development of that trade, instead of facilities to promote
MANY UNIVERSES IN THE MILKY WAY
That there Is but one great universe, pancake-shaped,
measuring some 175,000,000,000,000,000 tulles In the plane
of the Milky Way and one-tenth as much the short way
across, was the old-fashioned view submitted by Dr. Curtis
of the Lick Observatory to the National Academy of
Sciences, says the New York World. This theory of a
universe relatively small was not accepted by other
scientists, Dr. Shapely of the Mount Wilson Solar Observatory holding that our galaxy Itself might bo ten or more
times larger than the Milky Way, and that beyond it there
are undoubtedly other universes. It seems that there are,
in dim star-clusters seen through the telescopes, visible
hints of their existence. Of such "island" universes there
may, in this hypothesis, be millions, billions.   Who knows?
Even If there is only the familiar little old pancake-
shaped universe, so much of which is visible ot a clear
night to inspire human thought, that does not greatly help
finite mind to grasp the practically Infinite. Dr. Curtis's
modest universe may span 30,000 "light years," in every
one of w.hose ticking seconds light travels 186,000 miles.
To imagine a railway train running a mile a minute, day
and night, does not aid imagination. It merely turns infinity of miles Into infinity of time—say 105,000,000,000
generations of human life on the globe—a long journey.
Kent found two things for awe aud wonder—the starry
heavens and the mind of man. The thought of the finest
scientific mind upon the universe, visible or Invisible,
draws little attention from the problems of nations and tho
daily grope for food and raiment. A penny closely held
hides the superbest constellation in the skies.
Canadians do not always bear in mind, says the Montreal Star, the historic truth expressed hy Sir Lomer Qouin,
that Canada is laid on foundations built by the great men
of two race3, La Fontaine and Baldwin, Cartler and Macdonald. The first pair gained political authority, the second
made Confederation a reality. The pride of nationhood
which moves Canadians today Is, therefore, a heritage of
no stngle racial element, but is fairly claimed by both
French-speaking and English-speaking Canadians.
Just as the City Council had got nicely settled down to
business on Monday evening, a gentleman caused some
amusement by poking his head in the ball and asking In a
loud voice: "Is Dbnald in? Come here a minute." His
Worship adjourned the meeting for a few moments.

The jury hearing the libel suit of
Premier Oliver against Lawyer Elliott
for the sum of $50,000 apparently did
not take into consideration the high
cost of living or else considered that
a man in a position to pick up good
land cheap did not need the money,
and only awarded tbe premier the sum
of twenty-five cents. This judgment
may or may not carry costs but this
point will be argued in court. Both
gentlemen express themselves ns
greatly pleased with the verdict, so it
will go down tn history as one court
case which lias accomplished that
great feat.
Premier Oliver was openly accused
of attempting to secure land for bis

negotiating with the premier In his
ollicial capacity re the taxation of
their lands. These gentlemen apparently bad disposed of the particular
parcel of land desired by the premier,
but ln order to accommodate an official with whom they must deal, they
bought the land back and offered it
to the premier at a very reasonable
price. As the premier's lawyer stated
in court, "there might have been an
Idea in the minds ot these people that
they were Influencing the premier, but
if so the evil is in the minds of these
people and not in the mind or acts of
the man who has earned the sobriquet
of Honest John." He might have added that "to the pure all things are
pure," thus carrying his honest line of
reasoning to a logical conclusion. It
would be impossible for any person to
believe that a man Who has been
mixed up in politics as has Honest
John could have had even a shadow of
suspicion that these men were attempt- j
Ing to do him a favor for any ulterior
motive.   Perish the thought!
Premier Oliver estimated that Mr.
Elliott, In expressing a suspicion ot
the honesty of the honest one's action,
had damaged his reputation just $50,
000 worth. After hearing the evidence
and looking the two men over, the
jury, in its wisdom, brought down a
verdict for two-bits. A certain brand
of honor carries a bigger discount in

GUERNSEY COW BRINGS $17,700
A record price of $17,700 for
Guernsey cow was paid at a sale of
cattle, held at Midlothian, Illinois, in
connection with the annual meeting of
the American Guernsey Cattle Club.
THE REASON.
"Why Is it that you never ask your
lady customers what size they wear
when they come in for new shoes?"
asked the friend.
"Well," replied the shoe dealer, "It
la a lot easier to measure their feet
than to argue with them."
THE ALTERNATIVE.
A Georgia magistrate waa perplexed by the conflicting claims of two
negro women for a baby, each contending that she was the mother of It.
Tho judge remembered Solomon, and
drawing a knife from his boot, declared that he would give half to each.
The women were shocked, but had
no doubt of tlie authority and purpose
of the judge to make the proposed
compromise. "Don't do that, boss!"
they both screamed In unison. "You
can keep it yourself."
REASON ENOUGH
"What's the matter? You look pale
and feeble."
"Been through quite an ordeal.
Was up to Flubdub's house lust night."
"Well?"
"And drank some home-made wine
manufactured by his wife and smoked
two of bis Christmas cigars."

JEWEL CARMEN
INTERPRETS BIG ROLE
IN HER NEW PLAY
William Fox Star Handles Part
Cleverly in "Thc Girl With
"The Champagne Eyes"
A remarkable combination oi sta,
story aud characterization arc brought
together in tlie new photoplay, "The
Girl Willi the Champagne Eyes," thai
William Fox has made aud In which
Jewel Carmen is the leading ligure. It
is startling iu the boldness of the
theme and thc clever way iu wliieh II
is handled.
This picture will be shown at the
Ilo-llo Theatre tills evening.
The heroine is a thief, hut a tremendous and soul-stirring explanation
is made for the reason she has become
one.
But thc tenseness ls made inlliuitely
greater by reason of ber allowing all
innocent man to bo convicted of. a
crime she commits. Later she aids in
his escape from prison und then falls
iu love with him. Here Is a situation
that is powerful. This girl has,
through her own crime, wrecked all
the prospects and reputation of tlie
one whom she was destined to love
more than all others. Naturally she
is spurned by him, Naturally be fears
and dreads ber very existence, And
yet together with thc only oilier being
for whom she lias any attachment, an
elderly nmii who has fathered her,
they are all fugitives from the law and
seek seclusion in tbo Icebound north'
among the roughest and most dissolute
of men.
Through all this, the remarkable
woman who has stolen with Der hands
to keep her body unsullied, has kept
ber capacity to love pure.
Here Ib a photoplay that Is vivid and
striking and that pulls the heartstrings. We see tlie beautiful Jewel
Carmen in a role that is worthy of her
beauty aud her talents. We find hor
receiving solace in the children ot a
father who has been killed because
one dissolute man dared to interfere
with another wretched creature who
sought her love. She wins ln the cud
tbe lovo of the man whom she first
had injured and then tutor blessed
with her devotion.
What Jewel Carmen has demonstrated in her interpretation of this
role Is that she has kept a spark in her
heart that was clean and lovely and
that was capable of being awakened,
and made possible - her redemption
from any sort of misdoing, onco it hud
been quickened to brightness.

he waa glad "lo see tbe people of

"will no doubt react ou music In tho
schools. Both have educational value
of a high order.
"it is to be hoped that music may
very soon find its way into till our
schools, bolh public and private, as
an essential part of their work, and
thut courses lu music may be offeed
In a much larger number ot our colleges und universities. These should

"THE SUPERMAN"
AT ILO-ILO MONDAY
One of the Most Thrilling Sensations of the Screen, Contain-
' taining Every Element of
Human Nature.
There ls one thing which we want
to toll you about "The Superman" and
that Is that it is nol to bo taken
seriously. The fundamental plot Is
melodrama, with a cast of Italian actors who perform their roles in a way
which to American standards is decidedly funny. To add to tlie comedy
turn ns viewed In tilts country, are
"kidding" subtitles written in tho
George Ade "Fables of Slang" style,
which for the most part are rather
good. These titles take it for granted
that the spectator knows what is coming next in the unfolding of the an
cient vintage plot and makes fun of it.
To begin with the early scenes are in
terspersed with verses of a doggerel
poem which end with an author's note
that he couldn't think of any more
rhymes ao had to quit.
What ansonla, the film's athletic,
strong men hero does ln tho way of
providing action will make the inhnit
able Douglas Fairbanks green, with
envy. This is an Italian "Modem
Musketeer" and "His Majesty, The
American" rolled   into   one,   with   a
touch of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" thrown
in.
A certain royal prince of some
mythical European country aspiring to
me throne, conspires to remove a
princess and her little daughter who
stands betweeu turn and his ambitions. Siiusonla, who is an athletic
tvorklugmah who lives somewhere
.trouiid the neck of the woods where
all this conspiring is taking place, is
ihe liiBti uuient that fate has decreeu

designs. Alter being pursued uuu

It was the planchctte, a sort of writing ouija board, that turned Blspham's
thoughts to opera. He was thirty-five

whether his future lay in concert or
in tho unexplored region of opera.
At a dinner with a Swedish nobleman
who had been making psychic Investigations the singer,, lialf-jestlngly,
asked lbc plnncbclte which way he
ought to turn. The device, under tho
hands of the psychic, answered "Opera
by all means," and further inquiries
brought the advice that Mr. Bisphnm
ought to familiarize himself with the
roles of AmoniiHro, Wolfram, Kurwe-
nal, aud Beokmesser, adding tbat bis
opportunity to sing these parts would
come within a few mouths. Tlie singer was impressed hy the psychic demonstration and studied tho music
named. Within three months he was
invited to sing some of these roles at
Covent Garden, and he was prepared.
Mr. Blspham does not attempt to explain this phenomenon. He says merely that "there arc more things lu

In our philosophy."

PAULINE FREDERICK IN
"HER FINAL RECKONING"
Paramount Star Has the Role
of Tiger Woman in "Her
Final Reckoning"
To portray the role of a "tiger
woman" artistically, necessarily calls
for talents of a high order. There
have been many actresses ln days
gone by who possessed the requisite
talents, notably Sarah Bernhardt,
Mms. Rcjane, Jane Hadliig, Mme.
iVIodJeska and Fanny Davenport; but
if tlie opinion of critics may bo depended upon, none of these artists
have been more generously endowed
by nature In this respect than Pauline
Frederick, one of tbo foremost picturo
stars of the country.
MIsb Frederick Is essentially an. ac
tress of the first claso, and she combines with her hiBtrionlc ability,
beauty, personal charm and magnet-
Ism possessed by few actresses ln the
movies. She is u dramatic actress and
Hence In the portrayal of such roles
sb MarBa, In "Her Final Reckoning,"
In which Bhe is to be seen at the Ilo-
llo Theatre on Tuesday evening,
she is articticully ut her best. In this
photoplay she plays two roles, appearing first as her mother and later as
herself. Through the system of multiple cxposuro photography, she is
simultaneously seen as her mother
and herself .in the same scenes in
which the mother and daughter are
supposed to meet, the effect at times
being most startling.
In discussing her newest vehicle,
Miss Frederick made this statement:
"The play, 'Prince Zllah,' upon
which 'Her Final Reckoning' is based,
won success for tho most famous actresses in the world, including Sarah
Bernhardt, Jane .Hading, Modjeska,
Ellen Terry and Eleanor Duse. The
play created a sensation when first
produced, and was soon novelized and
published in serial form. Later, as a
book, it was translated into many
languages and had a tremendous circulation throughout the world.
The original presentation was
made with Jane Hading as the star,
and the play ran for one entire year
at the Gymnase Theatre, ln Paris. The
feminine star role is Marsa Tcheretoff,
whose mother was a gipsy and her
father a Russian. Marsa possessed a
large fortune which enabled her to
live in the romantic atmosphere she
craved. Her sensational love affair
held a great deal of heart Interest,
and it Is said that when the story appeared in serial form in a Paris magazine the shop girls neglected tholr
work to surreptitiously devour the
latest instalment of the romance.
"The role of Marsa is a splendid one
tor me, ns It enables me to appear ln
a sort of tiger woman character which
i'havb long desired to do. For a long
time lu France 'Prince Zllah' was the
key to dramatic success, and all the
famous actresses of the time demonstrated their emotional talents with
this vehicle." I
Miss Frederick lias had a long and
Interesting stage career. She is a
native of Boston aud is quite cultured.
She is of medium height—jU3t five

eyes aud brown hair, and weighs about

MY LOST DOLLAR
By Stephen Leacock in "The Sphere"
But he answered, "No,
My friend Todd owes me a dollar.
He has owed It to me now for twelve
months, and I fear there is little fear
of his ever returning it. I can realize
whenever I meet him that he has forgotten that he owes me a dollar. He
meets me in the same frank, friendly
way as always. My dollar has clean
gone out of his mind. I Bee that I
shall never get it back.
On tlie other hand, I know that I
shalt remember all my life that Todd
owes me a dollar. It will make no
difference, I trust, to our friendship,
but I shall never be able to forget it.
I dont' know how it ls with other people but if any man borrows a dollar
from me I carry the recollection of It
to the grave.
Let me relate what happened. Todd
borrowed tills dollar last year on the
Sth April (I mention the date in case
this should meet Todd's eye) just as
he was about to leave Bermuda. He
needed a dollar in change to pay his
taxi. And I lent It to him. It happened quite simply and naturally. I
hardly realized It till It was all over.
He merely said, "Let me have a dollar, wlll you?" And I said, "Certainly. Is a dollar enough?" I believe, In
fact I know, that when Todd took that
dollar he meant to pay for it. '   •
He sent me a note from Hamilton,
i
Bermuda.    I thought when I opened
it that the dollar would be in it.   But
it wasn't.    He merely said that the
temperature was   up   to   nearly 100.
Tlie figure misled me for a moment.
i     Todd came back in three weeks.   I
met him at the train—not because of
the dollar, but because I really esteem
him.   I felt it would be nice for him
to see someone waiting for him on the
platform after being away for three
weeks.   I said, "Let's take a taxi up  reasonable  numbers,  and,  as   far as
to the club."
let's walk."
We spent the evening together, talking about Bermuda. I was thinking
of the dollar, but of course I didn't
refer to it. One simply can't. I asked
blm what currency is UBed lu Bermuda
and whether the American dollar goes
at par (I put a slight emphasis on the
American dollar), but beyond that I
could not bring myself to make any
reference to it.
it took me some time (I see Todd
practically every day at my club) to
realize that he had completely forgotten the dollar. I asked him one day
what his trip cost him, and he said
that he kept no accounts. A little
later I asked him if he felt settled
after bis trip and tie said tbat he had
practically forgotten about It. So I
knew that it was all over.
ln all this 1 bear Todd no grudge.
I have simply added him to the list of
men who owe me a dollar and who
have forgotten It. There are quite a
few of them now. I make no difference in my demeanor to them, but I
only wish that I could forget.
I meet Todd very frequently. Only
tjvo nights ago I met him out at dinner, and he was talking, apparently j
with self-consciousness, about Poland.
He said that Poland would never pay
her debts. You'd think a thing like
that would have reminded him, wouldn't you?   But it didn't seem to.
But meantime a thought—a rather
painfpl thought—has begun to come
into my mind at intervals. It is this.
,lf Todd owes me a dollar and has forgotten it, it is possible—Indeed, It is
theoretically probable — that there
must be men to whom I owe a dollar
which I have forgotten. There may
be a list of them. The more I think of
It the less I like It, because I am quite
sure that if I bad once forgotten a dollar I should never pay it on this side
of the grave.
If there are such men, I want them
to speak out.   Not all at once, but in
may be, in alphabetical order, and I
wlll immediately write their names
down on paper. I don't count here
men who may have "lent me an odd
dollar across a bridge table! and I am
not thinking (indeed I am taking care
not to think) of tlie man who lent me
thirty cents to pay for a bottle of plain
soda in the Detroit Athletic'Club last
month. I always find that there's
nothing like plain soda aftor a (iring
ride across the Canadian frontier, and
the man who advanced that thirty
cents knows exactly why I feel that I
have done enough for him. But If any
man ever lent me a dollar to pay for
a taxi when I was starting for Bermuda, I want to pay It.
More than that: I want to start a
general movement, a "Back to Honesty" movement for paying all these
odd dollars that are borrowed In moments of expansion. Let us remember that the greatest nations were
built up on the rock of absolute honesty.
In conclusion, may I say that I do
particularly ask that no reader of this
paper will he careless enough to leave
this copy round where it might be
seen by Major Edward Todd of tlie
University Club of Montreal.

DADAISM
There Is a strange artistic and literary cult at present in France which
styles itself "dadaism," says the Christian Science Monitor. As far as a
complete outsider can see, dadaism is
a pot-au-feu composed of cubism,
futurism, vorttcism and other similar
ingredients. Its portraits resemble
nothing so much as an old-fashioned
plate of clam chowder, seen from
above. When It deigns to copy
old masters, as It did Upon at least one
occasion, it added a pair of moustaches to a reproduction of da Vinci's
Mona Lisa. In poetry the dadaists
are equally fertile in imagination.
The humble letter R, which Juliet's
nurse called "the dog's letter," will
1111 out two or three lines of dadaistic
verse, all by Itself. Much of their
poetry resembles a child's first attempt to write upon the typewriter—
for all the characters of a universal
keyboard are indiscriminately employed. It Ib an attempt to express ln
words the most florid effects of a jazz
hand.
One of the amusing results of this
new movement Is that the cubists and
all the other "ists" now find themselves regarded by dadaists as academic and demode. The cubists appear
to be rather annoyed. They hnve been
driven to parodying and burlesquing
the dadaists—a perfect illustration of
the  proverb  of  the   pot   and  kettle.
At the last census, 1911, the population of Scotland was 4,760,904. It Is
believed that at the end of the fifteenth
century the population of Scotland did
not exceed 500,000. At the time, ot
the union with England In 1707, the
population Is estimated to have been
abut 1,000,000.

efforts which are being made to raise
$25,000 for the relief of the suffering
thousands In Central Europe:
"As chairman of the Victoria Committee of the Canadian Jewish Relief
Committee, I wish to draw to the
attention of the people the campaign
which we nre trying to carry on for
the relief of the starving children of
Eastern Europe, while at the same
time we are attempting to prevent the
cruel scourges of typhus from reaching Canada from that Infected region
"If the dread epidemic of typhus
is not halted and confined lu Its present permanent seat of infection in
Eastern aud Central Europe It will
sweep over this country in a wave ten
times greater than did the influenza
epidemic, and in a form ten thousand
times more disgusting.
Black Plague.
"The black plague originated in
Eastern Europe and Central 'Asia, destroying 23,000,000 people, and almost
destroying the civilization of that day.
"Means of communication are rapid
in these .modern times, and the means
of dissemination of intention are
therefore more perfect than was the
case during the black plague of Europe, so, if typhus ts not "stamped out
or kept under control at the seat of
infection, it will spread like wildllre in
every direction.
Typhus Terrible.
"The report of the Council of the
League of Nations, dated June 26,1920,
states that the typhus, the worst of
Europe's many legacies from five
years of war, is virtually unchecked
in many parts. Poland ls thoroughly
infected, the disease having raged there
continually since the beginning ot the
war. In 1910 there were 34,538 cases.
In 1917 there were 43,840, and the
number in 1919 increasing to 231,206,
while the first two months of 1920
developed 46,500 cases, at which rate
the pjesent year will far exceed the
records of the previous ones.
"In addition to the Polish situation,
typhus is raging in Serbia, Roumania,
the Baltic States and Russia. On tlie
strength of this report by international experts the Council of the League
has voted three, million pounds sterling to be expended immediately in an
attempt to stem the tide if contagious
diseases that is sweeping over'Central
and Eastern Europe.
Amazing Indifference.
"The people of the community
must take this matter seriously; they
niUBt drop their attitude ot Indifference which is little short of criminal.
In the case of the starving peoples of
Enstcrn Europe the Indifference ot the
citizens, witli the exception of a few
of tho poor and a sprinkling of the
well-to-do, is, to avoid a stronger
term, positively amazing, while apparently It wlll be time enough to
trouble about the typhus when the
typhus is raging here.
"The time to fight the typhus is
now, aud the way to fight It is by*
helping to clean up tlie infected
areas in Europe, nnd it takes money
to carry on this light.
No Children Under Three Yenrs.
"Good people of Victoria, just devote ten minutes for thinking this
matter over ocarefully. During that
ten minutes try to see your own little
ones in the process of Btarving to
death. Try to visualize a land where
there nre no children alive under the
age of three years. Try out your own
soul and ret your conscience be your
judge."

CELTICS DEFEAT RANGERS
Formidable Contenders   in   the
League Easily Outclassed
By Cellar Celtics.
The Vancouver Ccllici;, with a team
greatly strengthened, just simply
walked walked around Ihe Rangers to
the tunc of :t goals to I on Saturday
last. Bradley, a halfback, late ol
Liverpool, was In the line-up for the
winners. Practically through his line
playing the Celtics wore able to trim
the Rangers so easily, i'. Hazeldtlie
scored the lirst goal for tbo Collies,
Robertson scoring for Hie Rangers.
Tho junior. Bradshaw, who played
ouch a magnificent game at Cumberland, then got busy and scored two
goals iu quick succession.
Tho Rangers wore a beaten team
right from the start, and at the finish
of the game walked oil' the Hold quite
down-hearted. It was different with
the Celtics, though. Tbe players were
iu high glee and their supporters sent
up cheer after cheer. Jim Miller, lbc
manager of tbe Rangers, is still wondering how it happened.
PRINCE OF WALES
TOLD  HIS  WEIGHT
LONDON.—Dispatches tell of incidents in the tour of tbe Prince of
-Wales in Australasia. At one railway
station, which was crowded with
sightseers, a man called out:
"HI Prince! Will you tell me what
your weight is?"
"Oh, certainly," replied tlie Prince.
"It Is 140 pounds. I suppose you have
a bet on it."
"Right you are," the man replied.
"Well," said the Prince, "I hope you
have won."
' No, 1 lost," the man shouted, "but
you are a good sport, aud I thank
you"
There have been added to the
Prince's collection many whale's teeth.
These are so valuable, according to
the standards of the Fljlans, who presented them, as practically lo bo ihe
gold reserve of tho islands.
PROSPECTIVE CHAMPIONS DEFEAT
CUMBERLAND BY NARROW
In spite of the hot sunshine, the match on Saturday last between
Nanaimo and Cumberland in the Inter-City League was a keen
contesl from start to finish, though some of the players certainly
appeared to be of the opinion before the game was over that the
summer time is not the proper season for football.
Cumberland had the game all to themselves the first twenty
minutes, and had the forwards taken advantage of one quarter of
the opportunities of scoring, the local team would have had a lead
of at least three goals in the first half. But though they continued
the pressure until half time, Cumberland was not able to penetrate Nanaimo's good-defence.   Half time arrived with a blank
FIGHTER AND MANAGER
TRAPPED IN BUSH FIRE
NELSON.—Eddie Eingard. claimant
of tlie Canadian middleweight boxing
championship, and his manager, Jules
Lovine, escaped from the Boulder
Creek bush fire late Friday night after
being encircled seven hours and climbing over all the logs In tbo world.
When the heat became Intense tbey
made for tho creeks, Flngnrd, who
carried an axe, making his preparations to die by bleeding to deatli it
necessary, while Levlnc selected
drowning as the preferable form of ro-
icasc.
They got trapped through being impressed into the lire line and taking a
hand in saving the horses. Jack Le-
vme, brother of Jules, sent out an S.
0. S. call for them the night of the
lire. The three arrived from the
prairie lately to work the camps for
a casualty company.
score.
After crossing over Cumberland
commenced at once to press bard, and
tbey bud many chances In tho first
quarter of an hour after changing
ends to open the scoring. However,
every one of their shots at goal was
wldo of the mark, and except on one
occasion, when bo made a really brilliant save, Routledge really had little
to do. At this lime Cumberland was
playing a great game, their short passing being particularly snappy, and
time after time tbey worked their
way down the Held only to be repulsed by the Nanaimo back division
to have the whole value of tho
attack nullified by poor shooting at
goal lo wind up with.
Their forwards could not find the
goal mouth with their shots, though
on more than one occasion It looked
as though a goal must result from
their concerted attacks, the ball either
going wide or else over the cross-bar.
Only on one occasion did Routledge
renlly have a dangerous shot to deal
with, and then running out and picking tbe bull off the feet of his opponents, who had tbe goal seemingly at
their mercy had they not dallied with
the ball too long; with a long kick
down the field he cleared in brilliant
style.
Nunulmu Scores.
During the last ten minutes of the
game the Nanaimo team literally
played around the visitors, their superior condition standing them In good
stead. VVi111 bul lifleen minutes or so
to go, a melee occurred in front of tbe
Cumberland goal, and Iboiigh Clarke,
their custodian, got to tlie ball as it
was driven goalwards, be did not
clear, but either fumbled or else was
guilty of the error of watching one
man only for he held the leather tor
just a fraction of a seond between his
legs. Husband, seeing the opportunity, rushed iu from tlie left with a rare
burst of speed and tipped the ball into
the net for tlie lirst, and as it happened, the only score of the game.
Played Well But Could Not Score.
With but a few minutes to go, Cumberland made super-human efforts to
[get* on terms, but the pace had been
too hot for them. Both teams came
within an ace of scoring during the
last few minutes, Cumborland in particular having some fine openings. No
further score resulted, though, and
Nanaimo left the field winners ln a
hard-fought contest by the margin of
one goal.
The defence on both sides was excellent, Wilkinson, for Cumberland,
playing lu quite his old-time form, and
kicking with admirable judgment and
force, while his partner, Zaccarrelll,
was not far behind him in the matter
of efficiency. The Nanaimo back division was also splendid, but the forwards ou both sides lacked ability to
finish their assaults by scoring goals.
Their condition enabled Nanaimo to
win with what can only be regarded as
a lucky goal, for while Husband was
quick to take advantage of the opportunity offered, and therefore deserves
all the credit possible, Clarke had
ample time to have cleared entirely
had he gathered the ball and thrown
it from him.
Tills makes Nanaimo strong favorites for the championship of the Inter-
ity Summer League. However, thero
are still a few macthes to play and
anything Is liable to happen.
VANCOUVER CELTICS
ARE IMPROVING FAST
Vancouver Celtics arc coining up
strong now. They claim to be able to
beat, any team in tho league, after
defeating Hie. Rangers so decisively.
Tlie Nanaimo team wlll certainly have
to play a hard game If they want to
obtain the full quota of points when
they meet the improved Celtics today.
