Proceedings Of
The City Council
Considerable Business Transacted at Fortnightly Meeting
on Monday Last.
The regular fortnightly meeting of
the City Council was held on .Monday
night, Alderman C. J. Parnham occupying the mayoral chair in the absence
of ivinyor MucLionald, who ls under
medical treatment lu Vancouver. Aid.
J. U. Brown, 'thos. Bannerman, F. D.
rickard, L. fi'ttucesclut aiid D. Thomson and City Clerk Mordy were also
in attendance.
»ti(HNI Loan Received.
Mr. J. W.-Clink, Superintendent oi
B. C, Soldiers' Settlement, wrote the
council, enclosing cheque for *pt>UUl),
tbe Cumberland loan under the Better
Housing Act, aud asked for debentures tor the amount, to be dated
August 31, 1941. A copy of the order-
in-councll referring to thc same question, was also received from Air. J. L.
Wnite, Deputy Provincial Secretary.
Mr. P. Phillip, Public Works liu-
gineer, Victoria, wrote asking for statement of mileages of the various types
ot street construction within the city.
He stated tbat this information was
asked for ou account of tbe pressure
brought to bear ou the government hy
hignway associations, etc., for information on road work. The information desired ls to be supplied by the
city clerk and board of works.
Dunsmuir Ave. f lussilied us Secondary
Highway.
From the contents of a letter received from Hon. Dr. King, Minister
0» Public Works, It Is evident tbe government will uot assist tbe ctiy this
year ln any of its road work, though
he stated that the government might
be ln a position next year to make a
refund for work done this year.
The minister stated that he would
classify Dunsmuir Avenue us a secondary highway. The census recently
taken showing that the city itself contained less than 15(10 inhabitants, allowed him to take this course. His
communication reads as follows:
"Victoria, Sept. II), 1921,
"Mr. T .Mordy, City Clerk,
"Cumberland, B.C.
"Dear Sir,—I am in receipt of your
letter of August 22nd and note that
your census taken by the police in tho
city of Cumberland shows a population ot lg43 ot all ages.
"This information will permit my
considering the classification ot a highway running through your city and 1
am advising the department that it be
classified as a secondary highway.
"I find It will not be possible for us
to make an allowance for work done
this year from the present estimates,
but if you should continue the paving
that you are doing we will probably
be in a position next year to give you
refund on a portion of tbe work, but
we would require that you keep accurate cost data in order that your accounts may be verified and checked
by this department.
"I remain, yours very truly,
"J. H. KING, Minister."
$300 Bonus Included In Loan.
City Clerk Mordy reported that when
In Victoria recently he took up,
among other matters, the question of
the $300 bonus for tbe soldiers, and
secured details of same. This bonus
is In the nature of a reduction on tbo
loan, and is not an additional sum as
some people thought. As soon as application is made by the person who
gets the $1000, the $300 is deducted
from the amount, reducing the loan
to $700, Interest being payable only
on the lesser sum. The conditions
are that the soldier must remain ln
residence ten years and comply with
all other terms of agreement, otherwise Jie forfeits the right to the $300
bonus. A soldier may, if he so desires, sell out to an approved soldier,
the bonus not being affected by the
transfer.
It is understood that there may ho
developments in the plumbing contract on the soldiers' houses, as Mayor
MacDonald has a communication asking for a special meeting to deal with
tlie matter. This will be taken up on
the return of his worship.

These additions and Improvements
will make this a most up-to-date store,
enabling the owners to give even better service to their patrons.
WHIST DRIVE AND .
DANCE NEXT FRIDAY
The Hirst whist drive and dance of
the season under the auspices of the
Holy Trinity Men's Club will be held
in the Anglican Church Hall on Friday
next. September 23. Tbe committee in
charge are working hard to make the
lirst whist drive and dance of the season a big success. Whist will be from
i to 9.30, refreshments 9.30 to 10, and
dancing 10 to midnight. Admission ls
drty cents.
Mr. Thos. E. Bate, after being In
business in Cumberland for nearly a
quarter of a century, has disposed of
his hardware and housefurnishings
business, together with the building
and lot to Messrs. Haigreaves &
Smith, who took charge on Thursday
morning.
Mr. Bate is one of the staunch, old-
time buslnes men of the district, and
lie will be greatly missed lb business
circles. He always took a keen Interest
in publlc life and welfare of the city.
He has tilled the mayoral chair as well
us serving as alderman. Mr. Bate ls
a Justice of the Peace and President
of the Cumberland Conservative Association.
Tha>'ref1ffiig*wir***i*. has not formulated any plans for the future, but for
the present intends to take a well
earned rest.
In taking over the business the new
owners, Hargreaves & Smith, announce
that they will continue buslnes along
the same general lines as heretofore,
but on a more extended scale. A special line of the new firm is auto radiator and fender repair work, for which
bey have established an enviable reputation on the Island. They were in
buslnes for eight years In Ladysmith
and later In Nanaimo, where Mr. Hargreaves conducted a hardware and
crockery business for two years, selling out recently to Mr. Marshall.
To the new owners, Cumberland
looks like the best place on the Island, and in backing up their belief
they have invested heavily in the new
business, with the confident expectation of getting a good share of public
patronage.

The Board of Works reported that
they had visited the isolation hospital
and found that considerably work bas
been done there by the occupier, and
that the place was now comparatively
new and a credit to the city. They
recommended tlie payment of the bill
forwarded by Mr. Fred E. Covert.
Bills and Accounts.
Strong comments were made by
aldermen on the practice of lirms
sending in accounts not accompanied
ijy requisitions. Several such accounts
were read at tbe meeting Monday
night, some for supplies bought many
months ago' These accounts were
laid over," as the Finance Committee
cannot O.K. bills of long standing unless accompanied by requisitions.
One alderman suggested that the
council refuse to acknowledge the accounts, as repeated warnings have
been given merchants.
The    following    accounts    were
referred to tlie finance committee for
approval before being paid:
W. Jl. Leighton, blacksmithing.. 30.50

Additions to the Fire Hall.
Owing to lack of funds, alterations
and additions to the Fire Hall may be
delayed until next year. A letter was
received from Mr. A. MacKinnon, secretary of tlie Fire Department in regard to the matter, asking the council
to accept the offer of the Fire Department to pay one-half of the cost, and
to begin work at an early date.
All the aldermen agreed on the need
nnd advantage of having the work
done, but the lack of available finances
will probably delay thc work.»
Thc matter was left in the hands of
the Fire Wardens to take up with the
Department and report at next meet
ing.
Aid. Bannerman reported that Mr.
Coe wanted permission to connect his
drainage with the city sewer.
Two other verbal applications were
also received, but the Acting-Mayor
directed that written applications
must be received, which could be dealt
With by the Board of Works In cases
of urgency.
Aid. Frartcescini, chairman of the
Board of Health, reported the city In
a healthy condition. A quantity of
cans, etc.. had been dumped at the
lower end of Maryport Avenue. Persons responsible for this will be prosecuted if discovered.

and "tenderteet" to face the hunters'
guns on Saturday morning. For that
is the day upon wliieh the shooting
season iu this district opens, for tbe
specimens mentioned.
Hunters during the past week have
oeen busy getting tilings ready, polishing ami oiling tiie instruments of
destruction and lixing 'em up generally, and handling the old trusty to
see that the hunter has lost none of
uis old cunning. Not the least of the
week's activities has been the question
of which is the best place to go to—
and telling of the wonderful "bags"
got in the days gone by. ■ "Them was
the happy days!"
Ihe schedule is as follows:
DEER.—Bucks only, one year or

posted up in a number of prominent
places throughout the city and district.
It is tiie intention of the Game Conservation Board to enforce the new
regulations to the limit fn order that
the wild game of tbe province, which
is being fast depleted, shall be conserved.
Want Puck Season Opened Earlier.
Sportsmen of Comox district recently sent In a petition asking that the
date for the opening of the season for
shooting ducks be fixed not later than
September 17, as the birds get "fishy"
later on and are not fit for human
consumption. At present the season
is from October 15 to Juuuary 30 In
tbls locality. The petition was forwarded to Rev. Thos Menzies for him
to handle, but so far no reply has
been received.
J. W. Cooke and "Bill" Merrifield
left Royston early this (Friday)
morning in their big launch the
"Murbos," for Cortez and other Islands
where they Intend to open the season
on Saturday morning In due form.
Other members of the party are Jock
and Walter Sutherland and Micky De
Coeur.
Tlie "Murbos" is a large and commodious launch, fitted up with all
conveniences; she is a 45-foot boat of
16 tons register. Tlie owners took on
100 gallons of gas Thursday and plenty
of other supplies, so tliat they are well
equipped. They expect to return on
Monday, or thereabouts—with a big
cargo!
Many other parties are leaving today for their favorite stamping
grounds.
Timely Hints to Hunters.
The following bints are taken from
a booklet Issued by Peden Bros, of
Victoria, and are very timely at the
present time:
Don't point a gun at any person in
fun. This is no matter for jest. It ls
always tbe gun that "we did not know
was loaded" that goes off. The only
time to point a gun is when you intend
to kill.
Don't carry a loaded gun or rifle in
a buggy, motor car or any other kind
of vehicle.
Don't carry loaded guns through
Ihe streets, on street cars, trains, or
leave them around farmhouses to have
some child plavfullv blow your head
off.
Don't get excited and shoot without
making sure that your object is game.,
and then be sure that It Is clear of
both man and dog.
Don't forget to "break" your gun or
clear the chamber when standing with
others or crossing a fence.
Don't drag a gun under a fence or
out of a iioal wilh muzzle pointed to-
wards you.
Don't climb fences with your gun.
or lean II agulnsl a tree until you get
over; put it through the fence on the
ground, business end before.
Don't put your linger on the trigger until you are "looking down the
barrel at 'Brer Rabbit."
Don't get intoxicated.
Don't load your gun until you actually get to business. At all other
times il should he empty.
Don't use a cheap gun. They are
apt to explode when using heavy
charges.
Don't rest on the muzzle of your
gun.
Don't borrow a dog or a gun. or
loan either.
Don't shirk doing a little more than
your share of the work in camp or
float.
Don't violate the game laws.
Don't handle an unloaded gun any
differently than you would a loaded
gun.
Don't run your dog behind your
bicycle or auto to where you are go
ing to hunt.
Don't  think any old place is good
nough for your dog to sleep or any
Id thing is good enough for him to
cat.
Don't forget to sec thai your camp-
lire Is out; It saves the forests and
the birds.
Annual Meeting
Of Junior Teams
Intermediate and Junior Teams
End Year With Good Balance in Bank.
The first annual meeting of iho
Cumberland Intermediate and Junior
Football Club was held this week, a
fairly large number of boys attending,
as well as a few older hands who have
an interest in the hoys.
President A. J. Taylor occupied tho
■"hair and opened the meeting. The
secretary submitted bis annual report
md financial statement, which showed
tbe receipts to have been f865.10, and
'he expenditure $835.01, leaving a bal-
tnce of $21*.49 on band, with no outstanding liabilities.
This very creditable report wan revived with great satisfaction.
The election of oflicers resulted as
follows:
Honorary President — Mr. Thomas
3raham.
Honorary Vice-presidents — Mayor
O. R. MacDonald and Mr. Charles
irahain.
President—Mr. A. J. Taylor.
Secretary-Treasurer—Mr. Nat Bevis.
Manager—Mr. H. Waterfleld,
Trainer—Mr. S. Boothman.
Executive—Messrs. R. Smith, S.
Hunt, E. Gomm and Joe Zanlnl.
Coach-G. Coral and F. Slaughter.
It was agreed to try and arrange a
;ame with tbe Bevan juniors as the
Irst game of the season. All the boys
ire very keen and determined to make
his a banner season.
Mr. Nat Bevis presented the annual
eport and tinancial statement for the
920-21 season, as follows:
I hereby submit to you my annual
report and financial statement for the
-eason 1920-21. I have much pleasure
in stating that both our teanis made
1 very creditable showing on the field
of play for their first season. ^Although
neither of them wore able to annex a
trophy, they made a fairly good Impression.
The Intermediates played their first
season in Upper Island League football, and although with very few
wins to their credit, yet on several occasions they were only defeated
hy a very small margin. With more
regular practice aud hard training tn
the coming season I am sure the other
teams will have to travel all the way
to defeat them. Their record for the
past season waa: Played 9 games,
won one, drawn 4, and lost 4.
The Junior team was very unfortunate in not winning a trophy in the
district, through various technical
causes. They took part in three competitions and were runners-up In
three of them.
In the league competition for the
Qraham cup they were the runners-up
to the Cumberland High School team,
losing out only by one point.
In the other league competition for
the Merryfleld cup they were not so
ueeessful, owing to many of their
players being unable to take part in
ill the games owing to sickness and
>ther causes. Nevertheless they made
a very creditable showing in this
league, and any time they were defeated in any of their games it was just
by the odd goal.
Iu the 24th of May competition they
played Bevan in the final to a draw

MRS. JOHN MACKENZIE
GOES TO HER REST
It was in the nature of a shock that
residents of Cumberland learned on
Saturday morning that Mrs. John
MacKenzie had died late on Friday
night. The deenased lady had tinder-
gone an operation for appendicitis
about a week previous and was understood to be progressing favorably towards recovery.
Late on Friday night her daughter,
Mrs. J. II. McMillan, was sitting with
her at the hospital when Mrs. Mac-
Henzie complained of feeling unwell
and a doctor was at once sent for. hut
the suffering lady died shortly afterwards. It is said a clot of blood near

CUMBERLAND WALLOPS
NANAIMO BALLTOSSERS
"Comedy of Errors" About Describes Sunday's Game.
The baseball fans ot Cumberland
were treated to a good baseball comedy act last Sunday afternoon on the
Recreation Grounds, when the Na-
HHinio went down to defeat to tlie
tune of -., to 5.
Right from the beginning the Cumberland boys played good ball and had
it not been for one error they would
huve shut out the visitors completely.
Raster pitched splendid ball throughout the game, only being hit a couple
of times, while tho twirler from down
below was slammed repeatedly even
by tlie poorest batter on the home
team.
Errors were numerous by the Nanaimo fielders, in fact they were like
novices playing their first game. They
did not cross the home plate until the
seventh inning, when three runs
were brought in and two the follow
ing, while the Cumberland boys tallied
every inning.
CHAMPIONS EASILY
BEAT LADYSMITH
Cumberland bad as visitors the
Ladysmith football team on Saturday.
The Connaught Cup finalists were not
ut full strength and were no match
tor the II. C. champions.
Campbell won the toss, and from
tlie kick-off the locals made tracks
tor Shepherd, Pilling finding the net
in tlie first minute of play, the same
player getting goal No. 2 before half-
time.
The superiority of the locals was
even more pronounced in the second
period, James and Plump adding to
the score.
J. Orr, the Ladysmith captain, had
the misfortune to meet with an accident, coming in contact with with
fence and injuring his ribs, which kept
him out of the game during the last
ten minutes.
Play wus too one-sided to be interesting and did uot assist the selection committee in their task of getting
a line on the new players.
Boyd iu goul had very little to do.
The backs, Campbell and Mortimer,
were not tested to any extent, as the
opposing forwards were well held by
the hull-backs. Irvine, Conti and!
O'Donnell were the pick of the middle
line, aud will be a bard trio to displace. Brewster, who was tried at
centre-halt in tlie second period, was
uot as cli'ective as Conti, but showed
till well at inside right, and should
make a splendid partner for Banner-
man.
James was the life of the front rank
in the second portion, and on his display will be a hard man to displace
from the pivot position. Hunden was
tlie better of the two men tried at
outside left; Scott seemed to be over
anxious and a little excited, but he ls
young and has tbe makings of a
player. Hitchens was the most dangerous player on the field, and looks
like holding down the inside berth.
The champions have the makings
of n good team and should repeat last
year's performance, and it is hoped
they will go one better and annex the
Connaught Cup.

ANNUAL MEETING
OF JUNIOR TEAMS
(Continued from Page One)
JUNIORS OPENED NEW
SEASON WEDNESDAY
The Cumberland High School team
visited Bevan on Wednesday afternoon and engaged the local juniors
In an exhibition game. Bevan was
without three of their regular team,
but were more than a .match for the
High School boys, winning by two
points to nil.
Bevan started the game with ten
men, nnd in spite of this handicap
opened the scoring, Strachan notching a goal in the first five minutes
play. This halt'was fairly even, the
boys playing all they knew, with little attempt at combination.
The second half was rather onesided, Bevan boys having the pull, and
only tbe defence of Hood, Reid and
Fouracre kept the score down. Aitken
scored the second aud final goal, aud
a pleasant game ended in favor of the
iiomesters.
For the winners, Robertson at
right back played a sterling game, his
kicking being clean and forcible.
Weir, Fielding, Burns and Strachan
were the pick of tlie winners.
Reid was probably the best of tbe
High Scliool boys. With proper
coaching this team should be a hard
nut to crack, as they have got speed
and weight; all they lack is a little
better knowledge of the game.
NEAR FATALITY
What nearly proved a sudden fatality occurred Monday afternoon just
after the fire-bell rang in response to
an alrm from Chinatown. A big automobile was coming up the street at
a good clip, and little Wilhelniina
tiordon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.
Gordon, of tlie Comer Store, started
to run across the street, right into the
approaching car. The driver threw
on the brakes at once, causing the car
to skid for some distance nnd just
missed hitting the little girl; in fact
her dress took some of the dust oil'
the car.
That the child got a terrible fright
was shown afterwards, for on taking
her In his arms, her father found she
was absolutely rigid and her eyes had
a vacant starve, causing her father to
fear she had been killed. It was some
considerable time before she recov
ered.
afler two hours' play, but in the replay they lost out.
Our Junior team, like all other Junior teams in this distrclt, showed
greatly improved skill and knowledge
of tlie game by tlle end of the season,
and I feel sure that If they will continue to pick up tlie finer points of thc
game, and I have no doubt they will,
and also attend practice regular, that
they will prove conquerors of most of
the trophies to be competed for In tlie
coming season.
The past season's record for the
Junior team was: Played 13 games,
won 6, drawn 2, and lost 5.
There is one point I would like to
draw the attention of the players of
both teams to, 'and that is the method
ot training. It is an undisputed fact
that if a player can kep himself in a
proper physical condition, he is always better prepared to last the whole
of the game, and also his knowledge
and skill of the finer points will likewise develop. This method of training can be secured by taking advantage of the gymnasium hall of the
Athletic Association, of which most of
the players are members. I am sure
your trainer will be willing to accompany you and give any assistance
necessary. Your committee, I believe,
intends to set aside certain evenings
for training purposes.
Before concluding I must congratulate the players of both teams for the
gentlemanly and sportsmanlike manner in which they acted on the field
of play in all the games in which tbey
took part In. I trust they will continue to do so in the next season.
It gives me great pleasure to state
that the past season was very successful financially, in view of the fact that
*-e had to secure suits for both teams.
The total Income amounted to $865.10,
^expenditure $835.61, leaving a balance
in the bank of $29.49, In addition to
$2.50 due by the Cumberland and District Junior League, paid out for affiliation to tlie B. C. P. F. A. Our liabilities are nil. I consider this a very
'air showing for our first season. Our
financial success is practically due to
the general public for their generous
donations and liberal collections at
the games, which we assure them is
greatly appreciated by the executive.

YOUR TEETH
THE TOOTH BRUSH DRILL
By REA PROCTOR McGEE, Editor of
"Oral Hygiene."
The size of the tooth brush, aa well
ns its shape, is a matter of personal
opinion. It would be reasonable to
use a large brush for a large mouth,
und a small brush for a small mouth.
The bristles should be of medium
stiffness and good quality. There
must, of course, be a dentrlflrice; this
mny be any good tooth powder or
paste, or merely clean soap. A good
powder, however, is preferable to any
other dentrlfirice. One of the main
things is to brush the margins of the
gums.
Silk floss for cleaning between the
moth is a splendid aid.
During the last eight years of school
dental clinics in Cincinnati, the following tooth brush drill has .been
worked out and is used successfully
to teach children how to clean their
teeth:
ATTENTION—Hold brush up in
right hand ut the height of the shoulder, in front of child. (This is so as
to be able to see that the brush Is
clean.)
UPPER TEETH. 1. Place brush In
nioutli, upper right, where the gum
aud teeth join. Turn down towards
grinding surface eight times.
2. Brush upper front. Place on
gum and turn down eight times.
3. Brush upper left. Place brush
on gum, turn down eight times.
4. Brush upper right inside. Place
brush on gum and turn down eight
times.
5. Brush upper front Inside. Place
brush vertically, brush down eight
times.
ti. Brush upper left side, Place
brush ou gum and turn down eight
times.
7. Place brush on grinding surface
of teeth, upper right, scrub forward
and back eight times.
8. Place brush on grinding surface
of teeth, upper left, scrub forward and
buck eight times.
LOWER TEETH. 9. Place brush
In mouth, lower right, where the gum
and the teeth join. Turn up towards
grinding surface eight times.
10. Brush lower front. Place on
gum, turn up eight times.
11. Brush loner left. Place brush
ou gum. turn up eight times.
12. Brush lower right inside. Place
brush on gum, brush up eight times.
13. Brush lower front Inside. Place
brush vertically, brush up eight times.
14. "Brush lower left inside. Place
brush on gum, turn up eight times.
15. Pluce brush on grinding surface
of teeth, lower right, scrub forward
ind buck eight times.
IC. Place brush on grinding surface
of teeth, lower left, scrub forward and
back eight times.
ATTENTION.—Hold brush up In
right hand. (See how clean the brush
is now.)
Last—see that each child's brush is
thoroughly rinsed with fresh water
und put away ln a clean place.

New Communities
Wrigley's Directory, Just Out,
Notes Tremendous Growth of
Agricultural Settlements
in the Province.
POPULATION 600,000
Book Gives Provincial Estimate
of Number of People—Volume
Bigger Than Last Year
Sixty new communities have come
into existence in the province during
the past year, bringing the total number up to 2209. The new settlements
are largely created by the occupation
of new lands by soldier settlers and
are an indication of tbe growth of the
basic agricultural industry in British
Columbia.
Mr. Roy Wrlgley, head of the firm, is
highly pleased with his product. The
population of the province is given tn
a conservative estimate at 600,000, as
compared with the figures of 718,000
by the Dominion statistician, R. H.
Coats. The Increase In the rural districts has been remarkable. The following table shows the Increase In
communities, the arrival of families
settling in little districts being responsible for the growth: 1918, 2010
communities; 1919, 2042 communities;
1920, 2149 communities; 1921, 2209
communities.
The 1921 issue comprises 1320 pages,
the first 36 pages containing the personnel of the British Columbia Government, together with a list of all
officials of the various departments of
the government, both at Victoria and
throughout the province, with Bhort
articles giving the jurisdiction of the
various departments, Indicating the
great resources of the province; and
the book contains scenes and views
throughout British Columbia, and also
maps covering all automobile routes
in the province.
The gazetter portion of the book
deals with 2209 separate and distinct
cities, towns, villages and settlements
in the province of British Columbia.
This is an increase of 68 places over
the 1920 issue.
Comprehensive Statistics.
The new directory lists all of these
places and gives a complete list of the'
men who are working on these farms.
In Vancouver the directory gives
the names of the heads of firms and
the salaried employees, and consists
of 318 pages regarding the city, its
industries and residents.
A classified business directory gives
tbe names of all business Arms, manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors
throughout the province, under 682
distinct headings.
The following ls a fairly accurate
list of the population in the leading

A "FISHY" YARN FROM
THE UNITED STATES
That bees like to travel over the
country ln a motor car, gathering
honey in different localities from day
tu day, ls indicated by the fact that
a colony of the busy insects recently
took up their home in the gear box of
a Ford car belonging to an oil operator who Is investigating the petroleum
possibilities of West TexaB. For the
first day or two the bees were slow
In returning to their Improvised hive
and a few of them may have been left
behind when the oil man started out
on his trips. He says, however, that
it did not take the bees long to learn
the sound of the horn, and whenever
he toots It they come hurrying In from
the flowers and sweet-scented desert
shrubs and crawl Into the gear box.
They are quiet as long as the car Is
moving, but the moment it stops they
hustle out and. begin gathering honey.

OVERHEAD INDEBTEDNESS
Less than five years ago, according to figures presented
by Premier Oliver before the convention of li. C. Muni
palfties at Port Alberni, the revenues of the province were
less than six millions of dollars for all purposes. Increased
taxation in many forms by the present government, lie said,
brought this revenue up to $15,219,000 last year. This Is
an enormous Increase in revenues by taxation. It would
be to the credit of Premier Oliver and ills ministers if
something was being done with the revenues at all com
patible with the Increase, but what are the facts?
Quoting tlie Premier again, we find the government not
only spent every dollar of the IHJ.OUij.ouu, but $**,.000,000
additional—twenty millions, two hundred and nineteen
thousand dollars, In all.
As very little road or bridge work lias been done, and
not a great deal in any other direction iu the wny of public
works, the question arises, "where did the money go?"
Where is it going today? Certainly not in road or other
work. -'TlMUli
Taking official records again, we find In the inst budget
speech of the .Minister of Finance, that about 17 per cent.
ot last year's revenue went on salaries to civil servants.
This is a high percentage and each year it is becoming
greater. While revenues show a big increase through
excessive taxation, expenditures are Increasing far more
rapidly—too rapidly for sound business methods.
WEEDLESS AND DRINKLESS B. C.^
Delegates from the U. S. Association for Ending Tobacco
and other Social Evils are now In Vancouver, seeking
moral and financial support. Heading the party is the
Rev. A. B. Parr of Seattle and San Francisco. With him
are eight women delegates. Members of tlie Unemployed
Aid Association are opposing their solicitation of funds.
saying that no money should be devoted to freakish reform
waves at this time, or any other time, when thousands
need work and other necessities. The Rev. Mr, Parr declares British Columbia will eventually become weedless
and without a drop of hard drink in sight. Well, the
pastor may be right, but we hope it will not be until
the human race, as at present constituted, will have ceased
to exist in this fair land.
IS THIS WHY PRICES ARE RISING AGAIN?
Prof. Irving Fisher, of Yale, who Is so versatile that he
la an authority on economics, on longevity of humans and
on prize fighters, is best known for his exhaustive and deep
Btudies of gold as money. It is Fisher who advocates
stabilizing the American gold dollar by fixing its value as
It grows plentiful or grows scarce. He contends that when
gold becomes plentiful, prices of commodities ascend.
When it is scarce, prices go down.
Please note what ls happening now. All prices were.
going down the first of the year like a lead sinker. But
around about spring time floods ot gold began to pour
Into the United States from the whole world. To date, in
1921, we have grudgingly accepted more than four hundred million of its. And prices?  They stopped falling!
KEEP OUT OF THE MAELSTROM
.Navigators who sail out of Vancouver harbor know the
danger of the tide rip. They know the danger of eddying
currents, and being wise and seasoned men, they keep out
of them.
Sailors who were so obstinate and self-confident as to
push their ships into tlie roughest places with all disregard
for safety would soon be permanently without a berth.
So when the tide is running strongly in the channels,
these Vancouver sailormen hug the shore or wait for the
favorable still waters.
There are many men who haven't the good sense of those
who go down to the sea in ships. This type is forever rush,
ing headlong into tide rips of business and eddying currents of commerce. If they emerge, they emerge as fail
ures. They waste their energy and time breasting the
high waves and getting nowhere.
There is no braver man on earth than the sailor who
conies Into the port of Vancouver. But he mixes his
bravery with good sense and judgment and gets aiiead even
in a storm.
'ihe example of our Canadian navigators Is one that we
all can follow.—Sun.
PROSPERITY  VERSUS PESSIMISM
Every man who sits back now waiting for conditions to
right themselves, is gazing nt the tail light of his competitor. In other words, ho is placing a mortgage on his
future prosperity. It may seem more pleasant to drift
instead of pull against the resisting current, but prosperity
will not come through lethargy.
Prosperity means good business, good business means
active buying. Buying moves In a circle and It must begin
with you, until by and by It comes back to you. Every
man, whether manufacturer, jobber, or retailer, is a factor
In buying. He, like you, buys tiie necessities and comforts
of life from the retailer who buys from tlie manufacturer,
who in turn buys the time, the skill aud the material that
the public have to sell. When you quit buying, all will
quit buying.   When you buy, all will buy.
Conditions in thu past have not been as we would have
them, but the fruitful Fall seasou ls now before us. Let
us all be optimistic, breathe optimism, think optimism, and
pull together for the biggest year of our history. "As a
man tliiuketh. so is lie."
"SALVAGING" BOYS
Hartley J. Doyle, of Philadelphia, has adopted a new
vocation, which he calls "salvaging" boys.
Cities religiously salvage' everything except human
energy and ability," .Mr. Doyle said to a reporter. "If they
would seek to possess the personal abilities of neglected
boys they would find vastly greater assets."
Many years ago, when a member of the editorial staff
of a New York paper, Mr. Doyle chanced to see a drunken
father mistreating his son. Mr. Doyle, i'.'mself childless,
took upon himself the development of the boy. "Since
then 1 have salvaged 100 boys. The work pays big .dividends. There are hundreds of boys eager to accomplish
big things, but without the opportunity to succeed. Thirty
of my boys are still in school. All the others are succeeding."
Mr. Doyle ls developing a plan now hy which he can
aid large numbers of boys. He intends to erect a boys'
club on a 200-acre tract near Philadelphia. Each boy will
be given an acre of ground for his workshop aud will be
allowed to produce whatever lie may choose. "The place
will be a club, not -an institution," Mr. Doyle said. "It
will be a place for the boys to live and play and study aa
Bradstreet's shows that commodities at wholesale ad-|well as work.   Salvaging boys is cumulative work.    Men
ranced over 3 per cent, ln July. The Department of Labor
gazette Bays retail prices were up from 3 to 6 per cent
ln nearly all the cities on August 1. Cotton Is going up
again. So are sugar, coffee, tea, hides, canned goods, textiles and silver. Maybe Fisher's right.—Monte Vista Journal, Colorado.
Where are the bright girls of the past? Inquires a Vancouver daily, remlnlscently. Our own observation ls that
some of them are administering doses of paregoric to the
bright girls of the future.
Mr. and Mrs. Noyes, already parents of five children,
are the proud parents of triplet boy babies. Tbey live ln
Victoria. The Indications point to lots of Noyes In that
home.
Premier Oliver told the delegates at the convention of
B. C. Municipalities that he was being squeezed drier than
a last year's lemon. It Isn't strange. That is the way
the average ratepayer feels also—and it's the Oliver Government that is doing the squeezing.
In Sweden a central arbitration board has been created
consisting of seven persons—three appointed by the government, two by council of the Employers' Association,
and two by the Workmen's National Council. Its object
Ib to render It easier for employer and workmen to have
collective agreements Interpreted, thus obviating recourse
to strikes and lockouts.   Decision of the board Is final.
Here ls an Interesting suggestion: "If Instead of our
government sending out thousands of dollars each week
for liquor, It would encourage the use of good beer and
light wines, all ot which can be produced right here in the
province, then we should have far more cash in circulation and the fruit and grain farmer and also those that
can grow hops would have home market for produce that
would demand a good price and employment would be
provided for thousands of workers."
Love makes people believe In Immortality, because there
aeems not to be room enough in Life for so great a tenderness, and it ls inconceivable that the most masterful of our
emotions should have no more than the spare moments of
a few years.—R. L. Stevenson.
The very elasticity of the British system is its strength.
Get rid of that lastlcity and you run the risk of something
anapping. Today South Africa has all the benefits ot full
self-government, plus all the advantages of close association with powerful and wealthy countries. It may be pos
slble to make the system work more smoothly. But that
will never be done by limiting the rights of self-government which have been acquired. The Empire can grow
and prosper on a league basis. It could not last as a close
federation. We believe that all prominently associated
with the Imperial Conference realize tliis and that they
will concentrate on the league Ideal.—Johannesburg Times.
I helped when lads have helped me many times since aud
many of tliem now are aiding other boys."
Improvements are noticed ln many directions In Duncan.
The new hat sported by the chief constable is exciting thc
envy of less happier people.—Cowlchan Leader.
A REPORTER GOES TO CHURCH
Meeker Herald, Colorado.
Our reporter went to the Episcopal church last Sunday
morning in a critical frame of mind, prepared to lind fault
with tlie service. He came away in a thoughtful frame of
mind. Perhaps the fact that he was impressed in spite of
himself might add some force to ills impressions. The one
dominating thought was that the service was devotional
and reverent, and seemed to express the spirit of worship.
Somehow you felt that you were in the presence of
Almighty God. I used to have the Idea tliat candles and
incense and beautiful vestments should be associated with
things foreign to American ideals of religion, and were
certainly not scriptural. 'I find that this is purely inherited prejudice, and that not only are they based on
scriptural authority (the Bible is full of them), but they
nearly all owe their origin to very ancient Eastern customs, and were used in the Christian Church before the
western portion of Christianity became the dominating influence of the world.
Upon enquiry and careful search, just to speak of one
outstanding symbol, I find that incense lias always been
one of the most common accessories of public worship in
the history of religion. It is a symbol of purity of heart,
used in tlie ancient Jewish sacrifices, brught by one of the
three wise men from the East as an act of adoration to
the infant Christ, and is mentioned several times in the
Revelation of St. John in connection with the worship of
heaven.
Again, not only is the use of symbolism and ceremonial
common to mankind, but it Is never condemned as such
either by the prophets or our Lord Himself, but only when
the heart is not In it. Who can say that the service of
wliieh I speak was not sincere, and the honest expression
of devotion to our Lord? Even the smallest child present
must have felt that lie was doing it for tiie glory of God.
To put the whole matter on a purely human basis, even
modern psychology teaches through the eye as well as
through the ear. Those of ua who are members of lodges
and fraternities realize how necessary our ritual is in impressing truth upon the enquirer.
Somehow or other I came away feeling that hereafter 1
should go to church to worship Almighty God, and not
simply to hear a sermon, no matter how good it may be.
I shall feel about God's House as .Moses did when he was
told to take off his shoes from his feet, for tiie place
whereon he stood was Jioly ground. I think I understand
now why a person should kneel when they pray, and why
the minister begins the evening service by saying "The
Lord Is in His Holy Temple, let all the earth keep silence
before Him."
I, for one, am going to quit measuring Almighty God by
tho limits of my own mind. Perhaps the church Is right
after all?
We never know through what divine mysteries of compensation the great Father of the universe may be carrying out His sublime plans; but those three words, "God is
love," ought to contain, to every doubting heart, the solution of all things.

"THE FRONTIER OF THE

Thrilling Scenes in Photoplay in
Which Gangster Fights
Prize Fighters.
A fierce battle in a barroom of the
Bowery, in wliieh Thomas Meighen
proves the victor over .several men
whose names are familiar to followers
ot the sawdust ring, is one of the
thrillers of "The Frontier of the
Stars," which will be shown at the
llo-Ilo Theatre on Saturday.
So Intense was the fight that Chas.
Maigne, director, expressed anxiety
lest he would emerge from tlie production with a couple of dead men on his
hands, not to mention what sort of a
star would remain to finish the picture. However, when Mr. Meighen finally pulled himself from the centre of
the conflict, he gave one of his famous
broad grins and, despite a torn and
bloodstained shirt and a gash in his
cheek, said he was ready for the next
scene. /
Some of the pugs who engaged in
the rumpus were Kid Broad, Ole Anderson, Eddie Kelly, Abe Attel, "Kid-
do" Horton, Micky Macfarland. Dan
Duffy and "Sledge-hammer" Nally.
There is much more than a light to
"The Frontier of the Stars." much of
the better and beautiful side of life
and a study in contrasting personalities, good and bad. that is intensely
Interesting. Faire Blimey is the leading woman and the remainder of the
company Is excellent.
The story concerns Buck Leslie, a
gangster and gunman, who tries to
stop a fight between Gregory, a
chemist, and a Bowery tough, with the
result that Phil Hoyt, a Bowery detective, catches Buck with Gregory's
gun, making a clear case of circumstantial evidence against him.
Buck escapes to the housetops.
where he comes upon Hilda Shea,
sister-in-law of Hoyt, a cripple who
has spent most of hor life in a wheel
chair on the roof of an East Side tenement house. Hilda hides Buck from
Hoyt and they become such good
friends that Buck is induced to seek
an honest livelihood.
Seeking revenge on Buck. Gregary
be caught with some dangerous explosives in his possession. Buck visits
Hilda with the explosives and Hoyt
tries to arrest him.
A fearful fight ensues during which
the explosives set fire to the tenement.
Exciting Incidents follow In lighting

ber mother and the lord. Mrs. O'Mara
will not marry as long as Peggy is
unprovided for. So, to promote the

"Oh, what a relief to be acting like
an every day person again," sightd
pretty June Caprice, after a Monday
morning spent in quiet scenes ln the
living room set for "The Sky Ranger,"
the Pathe serial which Is showing at
the Ilo-llo Theatre on Wednesday
and Thursday evenings of each week.
"Another succesion of thrills like
last week's and I should require an
ocean voyage to quiet my nerves."
The previous week Miss Caprice had
been "in the air" literally and figuratively, scenes having been taken In the
airplane that figures so conspicuously
in "The Sky Ranger." After whirling
through space clinging to tbe side ot
the plane, with the wind blowing her
fair hair in her eyes and lashing ber
delicate skin, June was frank to admit
that serial fare is too exciting for a
steady diet.
But only one day of relaxation was
granted June. The very next day she
found herself balancing on the edge
of a skyscraper, wearing French-
heeled pumps, while the third day
found her trapped iu an elevator shaft
with the car descending to crush her.
And on the fourth day they went W
a location on Long Island, and June
caused everyone to sit up and take
particular notice when she rode a
galloping horse across the sand and
did a spectacular fall, rolling down an
embankment.
Though considerably disheveled, and
with sand in her eyes and mouth, June
came up smiling, to the amazement of
all.
The fifth day she got a nerve-Jarring
electric shock from a device Installed
to protect her father's Invention, and
the sixth day she was thrown by
bomb explosion from an airplane into
a tree. As something to fall on, June
says she can't hand any recommendations to a tree. She did not fall "right
side up with care."
Moral: Don't count your quiet days
until you are dead!

William Farnum, the popular Wm.
Fox star, is coming to the Ilo-llo on
Thursday next In one of the most stirring roles of his career. It ls that of
Francois Villon, the famous vagabond
in Justin Huntly McCarthy's book and
play, "If 1 Were King," a role made
famous on the stage by E. H. Sothern.
William Fox is giving the public
many notable productions, but probably no more entertaining or gripping
picture than "If I Were King," originally written as a stage play for E.
H. Sothern, and about the same time
published in book form. Tbe play
was a huge success and more than a
million copies of the book have been
old. Mr. Fox's screen production
was admirably directed by J. Gordon
Edwards from the scenario by E. Lloyd
Sheldon. The settings are beautiful
and the acting throughout fine.
If 1 Were King" is the thrilling
story of a devil-may-care rogue who
won glory for France and captured
the heart of a noble woman. In It
William Farnum wins fresh renown
as the greatest of romantic actors.

anxious to insult, but no one is more
easily insulted.
He is generally conscientious, and
yet there is nothing he is so ashamed
of as his conscience. He will perforin
some act of self-sacriiice and blush
gulltilv when he is accused of it. He
will share h islast shilling with his
friend and feel insulted if he is
thanked.
He Is polite to his enemies and
studiously rude to his friends.
He is chivalrous to women, but he
lias built up a system of law worthy
of the cruellest misogynist. Englishmen are ridiculously soft-hearted, and
yet they Insist upon posing as strong,
silent men.
The English are the most sentimental people in the world, yet they are
always at pains to pose as the most
practical.
lu England they do not laugh aloud.
It is not because they do not love
laughter, but because they are vividly
aware of the danger and the blasphemy
of hurting the feelings of others. When
they do laugh, they laugh with their
eye's, aud often when they appear most
melancholy are they most full of
mirth. The practical joke they hate
because it is cruel; it is the whip of
satire and the scourge of cowardice,
and for them the kiss in Uetliseinane
and the sponge dipped in vinegar on
Calvary remain for ever ghastly
memories.
The English are tlie most peaceful
people, and yet the most military nation ou the face of the earth—or, at
any rate, the most warlike. Tlie reason is simple. It is .because once war
becomes necessary they accept it in
.he spirit of a holiday and regard it
:ti the light of a monstrous joke. Eng-
.and's greatness has been achieved
not through her good fortune, but
through her baffling heterodoxy.
Youth will not be denied, and England remains young while the old
world grows grey. Romance is still
loyally loved in the Land of Strange
Fancies, and when the worlds are
reeling in space and the oceans rush
iieadlong to the abyss some lone mad
Englishman perched on a tottering
.nountain-top will be laughing at the
thunder and the pandemonium of the
Crack of Doom.—A. E. Kemble in the
English Review.

)f beauty. Entrance to both ships is
through a white hall, reminiscent of
the time of luiogo Jones, when the
luaint fashion of the Elizabethan

lassical conceptions which found expression in the work of Wren and
Printing Gibbons. The only color here
is supplied by the doors of teak and
he floor of lino tiles. On the landing
>f the grand staircase of the Regina
me will find a large painting of the
■ity for which the vessel Is named.

While miners, like sailors and fishermen, believe in omens, they have
many beliefs and fetishes that might
seem meaningless to other people.
Many of the Lancashire mines ln
England are supposed to be haunted
by the wraiths of the tiny children
who years ago used to toil in the
mines until they died from weakness
or from want of fresh air. The children appear harnessed to ghostly trolleys, to warn miners of approaching
danger, lu some of the mines of the
north of England the white figures of
ghostly women is said to appear before an explosion.
Welsh colliers will not make pets of
white mice. They hold them unlucky.
White birds hovering around the pits
foretell death. If on his way to work
a collier sees a white dove he will turn
back. And you will not find a white
cat in any Welsh collier's home.
When a new man is taken on at a
mine he is never allowed to go down
with the first shift. He must go down
with the last shift.
It is not lucky for a man to stumble
on leaving the cage at the foot of Uie
shaft. More than once after such an
accident the rest of the men.have refused to work on that day. Certainly
the man who has stumbled must not
work.
When a visitor is inspecting a mine
he should never ask a miner any questions about the dangers of the work.
This simply isn't done. Above ground,
however, he may ask any questions
lie pleases.
A custom still faithfully practised
by the older miners is that known as
"parting." When men get to work on
a new seam the first miner to strike
the coal with his pick leaves a bit of
the clothes he is wearing at the spot
where he strikes the first blow. He
tears a bit from his coat or trousers
for the purpose, and it is considered-
unlucky to have such rents mended.
Among Durham colliery women
there exists the curious custom of putting small bits of coal among the
clean sheets on their-beds. They believe that if they neglect to do this
their men will meet with an accident
before the sheets are changed.
Miners in both Cornwall and York-
ihlre will not whistle at their work,
or Indeed at any other time. This is
probably a revival of the Arab belief
that whistling summons evil spirits.
The evil spirits of the miners thus
summoned are invisible birds that
whistle seven times on the day of a
pit accident.
IN BUSINESS
only solid worth in your clothes can be considered.
While the cut of your clothes is important, the worth
of the fabric and the care of the tailoring is more
important.   You get these values in

PROCEEDINGS OF
THE CITY COUNCIL
(Continued from Page One)
Aid, Drown Reports on Contentions.
Aid. J. C. Brown, who along witb
Mayor MacDonald, was a delegate to
the Good Roads League aud Union of
B. C. Municipalities Conventions held
at Port Alberni recently, reported on
the doings of the two conventions at
some length.
He said this was the fourth annual
convention of the Good Roads League,
aud a large number of delegates were
present.
Mayor Gale's report showed that a
great number of resolutions had been
sent to the government but very little
had beeu done by the provincial authorities.
Government Engineer Phillip addressed the convention at leugth. He
stated that there were 1642 miles ol
roads iu the province and that one-
tenth of these were in municipalities
which consisted of 75 per cent, of the
entire population. The number ol
motor licences issued in 1911 was
-nun. aud in 1921 they had jumped to
32,000.
Delegates wanted to know what the
government had done with the increased revenue from these licences
but Mr. Phillip said he was not ln a
postiiou to answer.
Mr. Cuthbert, secretary of the Pacific
Coast Roads Association, of Seattle,
spoke very strongly on the need ot
good roads in the province, and also
of the need of advertising to encourage tourist trade. He strongly advocated making the highway from Blaine
to Vancouver a hard surface road, and
also the extension or connecting up
of the Inter-provincial Highway across
the Rockies, linking up with the rest
of the Provinces.
The only resolution that went
through affecting the Island was the
one asking for the extension of the
hard surface road south of Nanaimo and the building of a road from
Port Alberui to the West Coast. All
the other resolutions adopted affected
the Mainland.
Mayor MacDonald advocated the
construction of a road to the Campbell River Falls, and he was supported
by delegates from all over the Island,
but the question was voted down by
the majority of .Mainland delegates.
Aid. Brown drew the attention of
the delegates to the fact that the
revenue received from coal royalties
of Cumberland and other coal mines
on the Island was far in excess of that
contributed by any other corporation
in the province.
Convention of the Union of B. C.
Municipalities.
The Union of B. C. Municipalities
convention was presided over by
President J. Loutet of North Vancouver, who in his opening address spoke
of the work of the union during the
past year.
Reeve Bridgman. chairman of the
Committee on Tuberculosis, reported
ou the work done during the year;
they had been instrumental in getting
the government to take over the sanatorium at Tranqullle. They were at
present endeavoring to have all condemned cattle destroyed, Instead of
being sold or otherwise used, as now
frequently happens, the meat being
used for consumption.
The Credential Committee reported
that representatives were present from
23 cities and 22 municipalities, taking
in all cities and municipalities of the
province except South Vancouver.
Mr. iMcDiarmid, parliamentary agent
for the Union, reported that through
the interference of the Union and cities
which sent counsel to Ottawa in connection with the B. C. Telephone Co.'s
application for increased rates, they
had saved $250,000 per year to the
telephone users of the province.
Out of 46 resolutions passed last
year and submitted to the government,
only six were considered. This year
there are seventy-six resolutions to be
presented, along with the 40 not considered last year.
The first resolution submitted was
from Nanaimo, asking for the enactment of a law calling for the taxing
of ail church property.
A resolution was adopted stating
that the Union objected to the decision
of tlie B. C. Telephone case, and asking that in future one man of experience be appointed for each province
to handle such matters—forming an
inter-provlncial committee instead of
a Federal House committee at at
present.
Two-Year Term for Aldermen.
That alderman and councillors serve
two years, was tbe basis of another
resolution adopted. One-half of these
would retire each year. Mayors and
reeves would serve for one year, as
at present.
The convention send congratulations
to Governor-General Byng and Lieut.-
Governor Nichol on their appointments.
That the government be asked to
take over all high schools in the province was the basis of another resolution adopted.
The cost of litigation in the appeal
re church taxation iu the city of Victoria was between $1S.OOO and $20,000,
and all municipalities were asked to
assist the city of Victoria. The request was agreed to.
The extension of the Better Housing Scheme for soldiers was another
resolution of importance adopted.
Many municipalities are anxious to get
additional loans.
Premier Oliver, during his address,
stated that the province paid $4,5000.-
000 for schools, while the municipalities spent $3,500,000. Six years ago
ftlie revenue received by the government in taxes was $6,000,000, and last
year the revenue received was $15,-
210,000, which had all been spent as
well as an additional $9,000,000.
He stated that the province received
from income tax, amusement and poll
tax. $4,425,000, and that cities were
asking for these taxes.
The Premiar. who was under hot
lire by delegates, brought up many
contentious questions, which President
Loutet replied to very ably.
Dr. McLean, Minister of Education,
in the course of his remarks, stated
that the cost per pupil for schools in
Saskatchewan was $92, Alberta 86.
British Columbia 74. aud Manitoba 73.
He said 225 new schools had been
opened iu the province during the
past year.
Aid. Brown stated that the convention was somewhat hard to follow, as
there were many interruptions and
eross-firing between the delegates and
government representatives.
A vote of thanks was pased to Aid.
Brown for his very able report.
lid. I'arnliaiii Appointed Acting-Mayor
It was reported that Mayor MacDonald might be away for another
week or so, and it would be necessary
:o appoint a deputy to sign checks and
transact other tinancial business. Consequently a motion was carried appointing Aid. Parnham acting-mayor
vith authority to sign checks, etc.
Reduction in Fire Kates.
Aid. Parnham informed the council
hat no report had yet been received
rom the Fire Underwriters regarding
i reduction in Are rates, but he understood a reduction had been agreed
jpon, and further reductions would be
nade if certain improvements were
:arried out.
Sale of Lots for Delinquent Taxes.
The city clerk was instructed to go
thead with the sale of lots upon which
there are two years' delinquent taxes
iue up to December last. These lots,
if taxes are not paid, will be sold at
10 a.m. on September 30th.
