TWENTY-NINTH  YEAR—No.   6.
CUMBERLAND,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1920.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE:  TWO DOLLARS PER ANNL'J
INDUSTRY MAY BE LOST
BECAUSE OF APATHY
trade which should flow into cumberland may
go in Another direction unless an energetic
effort is put forth by the business community
—formation of a live board of trade would
solve the difficulty—no time should be lost.
UNLESS the business men of Cumberland act quickly and
energetically there is a possibility of a great amount of
trade going to some other town which should naturally
come to this city- As announced in these columns a couple of
weeks ago, the firm of Bloedel, Welsh & Stewart has purchased
a large tract of timber within three miles of the city limits, and
it is expected that within three months or less there will be in the
neighborhood of 800 men working in the camps and on the railway
which is to be constructed to carry the timber to tidewater.
It does not require much stretching of the imagination to
come to the conclusion that such a large number of men working
and earning big money within such a short distance of Cumberland would mean much to the merchants and business men of this
city if they could be induced to do their trading here. And it would
mean much more if the firm-hiring these men were to locate their
heaflquarters here.
Neither of these can be accomplished, however, without an
effort, and it is distinctly up to the business men of Cumberland
to move quickly and energetically while the opportunity is within
their grasp. It is with the object of securing such trade that an
effort is being made to form a board of trade here, and it is not
saying much" for the business sagacity of the city merchants that
they are so apathetic in the matter. Only a board of trade can
handle such a question, because it can bring to bear influences
which will be felt.
The loss of time in getting together may mean the loss of a
great trade, because other commercial centres will not be slow in
moving. A meeting was called for Tuesday evening last at the
City Council Chambers, but there were only about half a dozen
who turned out. His Worship Mayor MacDonald is issuing
another call for a meeting at the same place on Tuesday evening
next, and he expresses the hope that every merchant and business
man in Cumberland will be present.
This is the time to act, not after some other town has secured
the coveted prize.
We Appeal to Your Generosity
Knowing full'well that the people of Cumberland
and district are ever ready to assist those who are in
distress and who are worthy, The Islander has no hesitation in making an appeal to their generosity for the
family of Mr. Samuel Shouldice. This gentleman has
become incapacitated for work and will have to remain
in hospital for some time. He has a large family of
small children who must be cared for. His Worship
Mayor MacDonald is endorsing this appeal. The
Islander is opening a subscription list and we invite
those who feel so disposed to send their contributions
to this office. Full credit will be given in each issue.
The money raised this way will be placed in the hands
of one of the city bank managers, and all withdrawals
will be made by the authority of the Mayor and the
bank manager. ,

At a meeting of the Women's Auxiliary held this week, Mrs. Owen, as

their regret at having to take this

than two and three-quarter yards

WOMEN'S AUXILIARY.
HOLD ANNUAL ELECTION
SUDDEN DEATH OF
JAPANESE WOMAN
One of the finest pieces of detective work seen in this district
for a long time was pulled off by Provincial Police Mortimer of
Cumberland and Dawley of Courtenay this week, when they made
a raid on No. 1 Japtown and gathered in a complete whiskey
manufacturing plant-
It had been known to the officers for some time that an illicit
still was in operation in this vicinity and that Orientals were en-,
gaged in operating it, but they were unable to definitely locate it
until this week. When they swooped down upon the distillery it
was in full operation and the owner was busily engaged plying his
trade. Sarayama, "the owner, was taken into custody and the
capture included a still, worm, mash, brew and-about ten gallons
of whiskey.
When taken before Justices of the Peace Bate and Willard,
Sarayama pleaded guilty and was sentenced to pay a fine of $500
or go to jail for six months with hard labor. He paid his fine on
the spot.
Veterans Definitely in Political Field
At their regular weekly meeting on Tuesday night the Cumberland command of the Great War Veterans' Association voted to
enter the political arena and expressed a preference for coalition
with some other party, that party to be the one which will meet
them with the best terms. As stated in these columns last week,
the veterans have decided not to throw their support to the candidates of any party in which they have not a voice, nor will they
support individual candidates who cannot offer them anything
better than "indefinite promises.
The entry of the veterans into the field of politics will no
doubt cause considerable sidestepping and manoeuvering on the
part of the old-line politicians.

Natural Causes.
On Wednesday morning about 2
o'clock the provincial police was notified of the sudden death of a Japanese
woman at Union Bay. There was considerable excitement at that place
when the police arrived, owing to the
fact that foul play, was suspected. The
woman had apparently been as well as
ever when she suddenly dropped dead.
The body was taken in charge by
the police and brought to Cumberland,
where Dr. McNaughton held an
autopsy, with the result that he reported the woman had died from heart
trouble and that-there was nothing to
indicate anything but natural causes
for her death.

SCHOOL BOARD TESTS
ALDERMEN'S CHIVALRY
Invited to Meet City Council Be Estimates They Shoulder Responsible
Hit)* on lady Member.
The City Council was desirous of
having a conference with the Board
of School Trustees on the question of
this vein's estimates, and accordingly
invited the members of that body to
meet them on Thursday evening. The
gentlemen members ot the School
Board evidently depended a good deal
on the c.hivulry of the aldermen, as
they absented themselves from the
meeting, leaving the lady member to
light their battles. The council decided that under the circumstances It
would not be courteous to the only
trustee present nor fair to the
ratepayers to take up the question of
the estimates, so nothing was done.

Special Despatch to The Islander.
Victoria,' Feb. 7.—Not in a vein of censure, but by way of
suggestion, Kenneth   Duncan,   soldier   member   for   Cowichai
warned the legislature on Thursday of the annual mistakes o'
wasting time in points of discussion which led nowhere, only t-
crowd out the possibility, of unbelligerent voting on more import
ant matters when they came to be discussed towards the end o
the session.  For half an hour Duncan embraced a variety of sub
jects, yet he was able to delve extensively into taxation, reforest
ation proposals and agricultural production.  Mr. Duncan took thi
occasion of reviewing the suggestion that the various lands within
the Esquimalt & Nanaimo land grants and now being used fc
other than railway purposes should be made to yield their propc ■
quota of revenue to the province by a proper imposition of taxes
Mr. J. S. Cowper, of Vancouver, opened his address by producing newspaper clippings quoting the leader of the Opposition
to the general effect that the Merville soldier settlers would br
starved out. Mr- Cowper described Hon. W. J. Bowser's doleful
prediction as on a par with the revelations he had promised to
make on the floor of the House from year to year, but which up to
the present time had failed to materialize. From this particular
point the speaker went on to twit the Opposition leader with the
audacity he had displayed on his platform in his declaration that
the federal Labor Party, the men who toiled, men who form thc
greatest element of the country had no right to aspire to the
government of the province.

London, Feb. 7.—The Allied reply
to the Dutch note refusing the extru-
tion of the former Kaiser will bo a
distinct reapplication of tlie Original
Allied demand that he he delivered to
them for trial, it was announced here
today. The note which was drafted
In Paris, was received In Downing

his cnbinel for Ihelr Inspection before
being transmitted tu Holland. The
outstanding feature ol the Allied communication Is the rebuttal of lui'cli
letters and arguments against extradition. The communication is also
said not to be really classed as a
reply, it Is distinctly u reapplication
of the Allied demand for a Burronder
of the former Emperor ot Germany.
The note Itself, it Is said, contains ad

why extradition is desiruble and even
Imperative. The second section oners

where it will be impossible for him

The Artists' Trio, which appeared at the Ilo-llo Theatre last
Wednesday evening, will not be
able to look back at Cumberland
as a place where they received a
hearty and worthy reception, for
there were not many people who
turned out to hear them, and
many of those who did attend
did not accord the performers a
very good hearing. This not only
had a marked effect upon the
talented ladies in their work, but
was a source of great annoyance
to those who wished to hear the
really splendid programme. One
cannot but wonder why it is that
people will persist in talking and
laughing quite audibly throughout the whole theatre when absolute silence is essential to reveal
the finer touches of both musical and recitative numbers, unless it be that they are more desirous of drawing attention to
themselves than to enjoying the
performance. Bobby Burns said:
"0 wad some power the gifte
gae us," and many of those who
persisted in. annoying their
neighbors on Wednesday night
might well take heed of the
admonitions of the great Scottish bard.
The programme was cut a bit
short, but this was not to be
wondered at under the circumstances. However, those who are
fond of good music and reading
were well repaid for attending,
as the three lady performers
are thoroughly justified in calling themselves artists.
Miss Merriman was particularly good in her character sketches
and her impersonation of a small
girl was a masterly performance. Miss Thorpe has a very
good contralto voice, and her
repertoire includes several classical numbers, but she was
somewhat unfortunate in selecting "Annie Laurie" as an encore
before the Cumberland people
had had an opportunity of forgetting how that grand old song
had been rendered by Miss McAlpine of Vancouver a few days
ago. j
Mrs. Vera MacKelvie draws
splendidly and she has a fascinating way of keeping her audience
entertained with her catchy
songs while she is producing her
lictures. She   also    sings well,
•specially in the trios.

Charles Henry Meltzer, the noted
critic, has this to say of Caruso:
"Though peerless, if you will, in certain roles, such as 'Canio' and '.Mario
and 'Radames,' the Caruso of today I
not quite the Caruso over whom tin*
public raved some years ago. Likt
other singers, he has changed wit1'
time. His art has broadened. He ha:
learned to act. But, with his youtl
have gone the exquisite freshness oi
his youthful tones, the ability which
amazed us, to sustain his magic notes.
and not a little of his ease In breathing. Ills marvellous tenor has a bary-
tonlc quality, suggesting rather bronzi
than gold or silver. His manly figure
Is ill-suited to such characters as the
boyish chevalier of 'Minion,' the 'Ko-
clolto' of 'La Bohemo' and tho "Nemor-
Ino' ol the 'furtive tear' iu 'I.'Elisoi
d'Amore.' In Massanet's opera he look;-
more like 'Manon's' uncle than her
rhapsodic lover. And it Is hard to accept him as an unbridled poet. His
'Canio,' I admit, Is Irresistible. If he
would stick to robust roles like that
and 'Radames,' I should still shout for
him. Jean de Reske had his glorious
hour, and went away. Before Jean,
men had sworn by Campanlni. Caruso,
thanks to his physique and voice, lias
years to sing In. But not in the lyric
and more graceful kinds of operas. All
this means heresy. Well, call it so.
But some who know would call it plain
common sense. We admire Caruso, bu:
we love our illusions. Caruso creates
them when he appears as the avenging mountebank and the unfaithful
conqueror. He Is not so happy In more
graceful parts.

PROHIBITION LEGISLATION
FORESHADOWED IN SPEECH
Opening of Legislature Attended
With Ceremonies of Pre-
War Days.
Amendment to Prohibition Act
Will Cut Down Size of Prescriptions of Doctors.
The ceremonies attendant oil thc
opening of the Legislature ut Victoria
lust week were marked by the pomp
..mi circumstance of pre-war days. The
usual salutes and the military ln full
dross were in evidence, a striking contrast to the sombre display made during the time of wur. In thc speech
from the throne,' which Is herewith
given, announcement is made ul*
amendments to several acts, among
which Is the Prohibition Act. The
amendment to this act has in view the
further regulating and limiting of prescriptions by doctors. An amendment
to the Workman's Compensation Act
provides for increasing thc allowances
to widows and children of deceased
workmen.
Following ls tiie speech from thc
throne In full:
Mr. Speaker and Members of tlie
Legislative Assembly:
I welcome you to the fourth session
of the fourteenth Parliament of the
Province of British Columbia,
Since last session thc peace negotiations which then were in progress have
resulted In the signing of a treaty of
peace, which I earnestly hope will lie
maintained.
During the year last past Canada
has been honored by a visit from His
Hoyal Highness the Prince of Wales,
who was received most joyfully by the
citizens of all classes, aud who, hy the
kindliness and affability of his conduct, endeared himself to all with
whom he came in contact. I feel sure
that this visit will strengthen nnd
maintain the solidarity of tlie Empire
which the late war so amply demonstrated.
Since last session Their Excellencies
the Governor-General nnd the Duchess
of Devonshire revisited the province,
and. I. feel sure that every such visit
gratifies the loyal subjects of His
Majesty and enures to the benefit of
the people as a whole.
The visit of Admiral and Lady Jellicoe, with the officers aud crew of thc
flagship New Zealand, was the source
of much gratification, and I sincerely
hope that future developments may
prove that the visit of the distinguished admiral has not been without
substantial and beneficial results.
A visit of the secretary of war for
the United States of America wns welcomed and received as a courteous and
friendly act tendered by tlie United
States to the people of the Empire of
Great Britain.
I am pleased to advise you that the
financial credit of the province continues to improve, as reflected in the
loans during the present fiscal year.
This has been brought about through
the financial policy of my government,
the basis of which Is to keep current
expenditure within revenue and to
borrow only on capital account The
Increased efficiency of the department
of finance is resulting In a more equitable distribution of the burden of taxation and a more rigid collection of
revenue.
The timber Industry has experienced
a prosperous year and tlle outlook for
the ensuing year is most promising
Conservation in perpetuity of tills asset
ls of the most vital importance, und
you will be asked for special appropriations for this work.
The careful consideration which has
been given to the Irrigation problems
ln the Dry Bolt Is having most beneficial results. The thorough safeguarding of the whole Irrigation situation
cannot be overestimated, and u further measure to facilitate the solution
of the complicated questions which
exist with respect to many irrigation
projects will be submitted for your
consideration.
As compared with each of the two
preceding years, more than double the
number of pre-emption records have
been Issued, with fewer abandonments
and cancellations.
Applications for Industrial sites also
have shown considerable increase.
This progress in settlement and industrial activity renders necessary additional appropriations for surveys,
which it is Intended shall be made in
the British Columbia Southern and
Columbia and Western blocks.
Advantage has been taken of the
terms of the Better Housing Act to
the extent of a million and a quarter
dollars, which Is being used exclusively to provide homes for returned
soldiers.
A definite system of administration,
under the Grazing Act passed last session, has been established, and will
make for effective production aud the
encouragement of the stock-raising industry.
The past year has witnessed the
commencement of an extensive programme of a comprehensive system
of trunk highways, the emergency appropriation for public works purposes

BUSINESS MEN, WAKE UP !
There is much need for the
business men of Cumberland to
awaken to the fact that if they
wish to see their city prosper and
reap the full benefit of the advantages which are naturally
hers, they must needs bestir
themselves. No city can stand
still, either it will advance or recede. If it is the desire of the
merchants and others engaged in
business in Cumberland that it
should drift into a state of
innocuous desuetude, then we
can assure them that they are
going about it in the right way
of attaining their wishes. But
we do not believe they are anxious that the city should go back,
but rather the contrary. Yet
they are not displaying the
amount of energy and enthusiasm in securing that advancement. Nothing can be attained
in this world without effort. No
doubt much hard work is entailed in prosecuting a campaign
for the betterment of a community, but it will invariably be
found that the results prove
worthy of the effort.
At the present time His Worship the Mayor and some other
energetic citizens are able to
peer into the future and discern
the benefits that will accrue to
this city if an energetic effort is
made to induce industries and
business concerns to locate here.
They know full well that unless
a determined effort is made now
the city will miss the opportunities that are now knocking at its
door. And they know that the
one agency which can do more
than all others to bring prosperity to the city is a gool live
board of trade. An effort has
twice been made recently to re
organize this very necessary
body which has long since been
allowed to lapse, but up to the
present their efforts have not
been attended with any great
degree of success. Another
meeting has been called for next
Tuesday night at the City Hall,
and it is* hoped that there will be
present enough business men to
ensure a reorganization.
Just at present there is a possibility that Cumberland can
secure the trade that will naturally flow from the presence in
its immediate vicinity of something over 800 men earning good
wages, and which have every
prospect of remaining in this
locality for seven or eight years
at the least; and there is also
the possibility of inducing the
firm which will employ them to
locate their headquarters here.
But these will not come here of
their own accord, especially
when near-by towns are straining every effort to secure them.
It will require some energetic
work on the part of the citizens
of Cumberland to land the prize,
and it is up to the business men
to move quickly and energetically.
Mayor McDonald is doing his
utmost in the matter, but he
cannot be expected to do it all by
himself; he must have assistance. So, Mr. Business Man, it is
distinctly up to you!
the King, and they apparently
do not realize that the anthem
has in modern times come to be
looked upon as referring to the
nation and not to any one individual. In these days the British monarch represents the people as a whole and not himself
entirely, and when blessings are
called down upon him the petition extends to the people as
well.
There is probably no country
in the world where so little reverence is shown to the National
Anthem as in Canada. To the
south of the 49th parallel it is
not well for anyone who does not
rise to his feet and stand at attention while the National Anthem of the United States is be-
,ng either sung or played. The
people in that country thoroughly understand the significance of
the proceeding, and they are not
;low to show their displeasure
at any who wilfully disregard
the solemnity of the occasion.
If, however, there are those
who are not willing to show
their respects to the nation in
this matter, they should at least
have the good manners to remember those who are performing.
DANCE WAS
BIG SUCCESS
St. John's Ambulance Association Are Hosts to Large
Gathering.
DISTINCTLY DISCOURTEOUS
We have noticed on several
occasions lately that, at the end
of performances at the theatre
where the National Anthem is
sung by the performers on the
stage, a great many people in
the audience pay absolutely no
heed to the singers but start off
in a mad rush for the exit. To
say the least this is decidedly
discourteous to the performers.
Also it is an affront to the whole
nation. No doubt there are some
who are averse to the singing of
the National Anthem because its
theme is centred in His Majesty
"To dance or not to dance" was
answered emphatically ln the affirmative at the social evening held under
the auspices of the St. John's Ambulance Association in the Ilo-llo Dance
Hall on Wednesday evening. To make
one's feet keep still with such an orchestra in attendance and such congenial company was an Impossibility.
Young and old were Infected by the
lively strains and tbe dancing was fast
and furious.

Immediately following the whist
drive, lovers of dancing had every opportunity to Indulge to their hearts'
colttent nnd judging by the number
wlio thronged the floor showed thai
they appreciated the entertainment
provided for them.
As a new day was being rung iu tlie
dancing ceased  while    refreshments
provided by the Indies wero served,
and following such strenuous exercise
tlie respite wns doubly welcome, Dancing wns again resumed nnd such wns
the demand for encores that tlle committee persuaded the orchestra to continue for an additional hour,
As day wn,s dawning a tired but
happy throng wended their way homeward, having had forcibly impressed
upon their minds that the St. John's
Ambulance Association are some entertainers.

District was held in Cumberland on

SPORT
INAUGURAL TILT IN THE DISTRICT FOOTBALL SCHEDULE
WOUND UP WITH NEITHER TEAM SCORING—MEN
FROM BEVAN HAD BETTER OF THE FLAY IN THE
FIELD, BUT REDOUBTABLE WALKER PREVENTED
THEM FROM PIERCING THE NET.
A LARGE CROWD followed the Cumberland B team to Bevan
to witness the first of the local soccer contests. The popularity of the game was evidenced by the Cumberland
rooters, who packed two cars on the special train. The game wast
like all first of the season games and the play was rather broken:
although Bevan forwards had seventy minutes of the play.
Bevan's team looks like a strong contender for the McLean Cup,
and with a few more games together will take some beating.
Walker in goal for the B team saved his team a point, his work
between the sticks being one of the finest displays of goal keeping
seen in this district for a long time. The half-backs on both teams
played well and slipped into the back division when necessary,
which happened pretty often for Cumberland. Jackson, Williams
and Slaughter for the Cumberland team, and Herd, Nesbitt and
Brown were played very hard, in fact, so hard that they were all
in when the game ended. Bevan's forwards started out with a
dash, and they kept it up for three parts of the game. Davis on
the left wing, Bannerman on the right, kept drive, drive, drive
across the mouth of the goal, but Gibson and Gus Lapsansky were
unlucky and combined with poor shooting were unable to convert
what seemed perfect chances. Walker was as cool as the proverbial cucumber beneath the terrible barrage of the forwards
but was always there when wanted, being in difficulties only once
throughout the game. Deconink and Boyd making their first for
the B team took lots of chances, but their kicking was poor in
places, although Boyd did some pretty clearing in close quarters.
Cumberland's forwards were young and inexperienced in the game
but they did their best and if the half-back line had been able to
help them instead of the defense it might have changed the whole
complexion of the game and given the public a chance to size up
the talent that Shearer has collected together in his aggregation
of soccer experts.
Bond, Houdock and Rickson look like comers, and Yates sizes
up more like a half-back. Quinn made a good try at outside left
but he was out of shape and could no,t stand the pace. Bannerman
and Davis played like fiends to get a goal but the fault lay with
the inside men who could not convert.
Brown and Quinn have gathered together a fine team in the
Siberian city and all the other teams will have to hump to get
away with the honors.
The weather was beautiful and the playing field was in good
shape.. The Cumberland boys were well treated by the Bevan
AC, Mr. Dave Chambers doing all in his power to make the
boys welcome, and altogether the District League got away to a
good start.   The teams lined up as follows:—
Bevan:—Westfield, Joe Lapsansky, McNeill, Brown, Herd,
Nesbitt, Bannerman, Gibson, Gus Lapsansky, Popropozky, Davis.
Cumbrland B Team:—Walker, Boyd, Deconink, Jackson.
Williams, Slaughter, Quinn, Rickson, Houdock, Bond, Yates.

Macaroni Pulverizers Challenge
the Mush Eaters at Basketball
The big sporting event of next week promises to be tho
basketball game between Fred Dallos' bevy of Macaroni Pulverizers and Rowan's team of Mush Eaters. The men of Sunny
Southern Europe are a hardy gang, and they think their chances
of pulverizing the "Canny Scots" are excellent. On the other
band, the Mush Kitting stalwarts' shout of "Uannockburn" und
other famous Scottish battles. "Never say die," is their watchword, and when the Macaroni tangles with tlie Mush, somebody
Is going to liuve Indigestion.
Dallos will i probably lino up Deconink, Conti, Joe Dallos,
Fred (himself), Celle, and Lapsansky.
Rowan's Mush Eaters Include the ex-Mayor of Bevau, Bobble
Brown, Big Bill Walker, Harry Farmer, Mark Coe, Jack Williams,
and Ed Hunden.
This game ls for a twelve gallon keg of nails.

The Wobblies wobbled away with a
victory over Bevan again, 24 to 11.
The Wobblies' weight was in evidence,
also the referee's. According to the

reaped the benefit of their practices,

would not be an Insult to the *'rof."

Bevan Huskies came to town for another game and travelled back to the
Siberian City still minus a victory.
Bevan were not satisfied with the
standing of one of the Wobblles In the
tlle first league game, and the management of the Wobblles decided to
give them another chance for the leadership of the league. The game was
played Tuesday night and the
Wobblies fielded a stronger team than
ever, coming out on the long end of a
14-11 score. Bannerman, Miller and
Armstrong plnyed a great game at forward, but were unable to penetrate
the Wobblles' defence. DeConlnk and
Williams turned ull their lightning
ruids to nothing and their defence
must have been good when the Siberians only managed to land one field
busket, Joe Lapsansky, the popular
cartoonist, turning the trick as substitute for Miller. Tlle ex-Mayor Bobble
Brown was there aud Bob's game Is

Walker scored well for the Wobblles,
and Conti pulled tricks on Brown at
guard that left him amazed. Sommerville met some hard bumps but played
the game through.   The teams:

BEVAN LADS VANQUISH
CUMBERLAND STUDENTS
Juveniles  From  the Siberian  Town
Prove Themselves Too Much for
High School Boys.
The Bevan Midgets played the preliminary game to the Husky-Wobblles
fray ou Tuesday night and walked
away from the brainy boys of the high
school. The brawn of Bevan both outplayed and outscored the students.
This game was one of the first of a
series between tlie school boys of this
city and the Siberian town. Mr. Colin
Campbell and Mr. Dave Chambers are
figuriing on making tlie games a regular weekly affair. Tlie Islander hopes
they have much success in their venture, as the youth of the town need
games like basketball In the winter
evenings, und the games wlll he a
benefit to the boys.
THE champions of the Upper Island League demonstrated
their ability to trim the pick of Cumberland District when
they put the All-Stars on the short end of a 3-1 score. Wednesday's game was more in the nature of a practice game lor tlie
champions as training lor their probable (rip to South Wellington.
The game was hard played, although lacking the excitement nl' a
real contest with something at stake.
_ The champions were slow in getting away and it seemed for
a time that the All-Stars were going to give a lot of trouble lo
Westfield, in goal for the champions. After quite a lot of desultory
play Williams made a nice opening for Bannerman on the right
wing. Bannerman crossed, but Joe Lapsansky cleared. Both All-
Star backs were playing a good game. McNeill's kicking was very
good, while Lapsansky placed well and took all opportunities. The
hard working Conti then veered the play to the left wing and his
combination work with Billy Brown was pretty to watch, but the
Star's backs were not to be denied Mid after a sudden rush by
Jackson and Contii McNeill cleared to ! :ugh Doherty at centre hall'
and then a little half-back ttiosk si irted that ended wilh the
Champion's goal in danger. Wilkinson and Cairns were worked
hard at this period, and alter some clever head work with Nesbitt,
Lapsansky and Gibson, the latter shot one that was impossible to
save. The Champions bucked un in th'* second half and seemed to
be in better shape than thc All-Stars. They came from behind,
and after a combined rush by Conti, Brown aid Jackson, netted
their first goal. Conti did the necessary feet work and White,
who shapes up well in goal, was given no chance to handle.
The Champions were now pressing hard and Doherty was
made to travel at great pace to keep it]) with the Champion's
forwards. Nesbitt retains his old-time cleverness and kept his
position well. Bannerman was given a beautiful opportunity
on a pass from Tom Jackson. Lapsansky tried to clear an Bannerman slipped in between both backs and made a dash for goal;
had the goal keeper beat, and then kicked the ball into White's
hands-   It was a great effort and should have been a sure goal.
Fred Jackson then got in the scoring column, and after a nice
cross from Bannerman, tallied No. 2. The Stars seemed to be
waning, and Wilkinson and Cairns were not bothering much, although Bert Davis who is always dangerous made some nice plays
off Slaughter's work at half. Frank was always there and Nesbitt
was very tricky, but the tide would not be turned, and, after a
brilliant piece of play in midfield, Jack Williams swung a long ball
to outside right. Bannerman made a nice run and crossed to
centre after a little mixup in front of the net Billie Brown put a
little twister out of White's reach.   Score Three-One.
Teame were All-Stars—White, Joe Lapsansky, McNeill,
Doherty, Nesbitt, Slaughter, Gus Lapsansky, Rickson, Gibson, Coe. ■
Waddington, Bert Davis.
Champions—Westfield, Wilkinson, Cairns, Tom Jackson, Williams, R. Brown, Ted Jackson, VV. Brown, Conti, Willoughby, Bannerman.   Referee, J. L. Brown, Bevan.

SATl'RDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1920.
BUSINESS MEN, WAKE UP !
There is much need for the
business men of Cumberland to
awaken to the fact that if they
wish to see their city prosper and
reap the full benefit of the advantages which are naturally
hers, they must needs bestir
themselves. No city can stand
still, either it will advance or recede. If it is the desire of the
merchants and others engaged in
business in Cumberland that it
should drift into a state of
innocuous desuetude, then we
can assure them that they are
going about it in the right way
of attaining their wishes. But
we do not believe they are anxious that the city should go back,
but rather the contrary. Yet
they are not displayinig the
amount of energy and enthusiasm in securing that advancement. Nothing can be attained
in this world without effort. No
doubt much hard work is entailed in prosecuting a campaign
for the betterment of a community, but it will invariably be
found that the results prove
worthy of the effort.
At the present time His Worship the Mayor and some other
energetic citizens are able to
peer into the future and discern
the benefits that will accrue to
this city if an energetic effort is
made to induce industries and
business concerns to locate here.
They know full well that unless
a determined effort is made now
the city will miss the opportunities that are now knocking at its
door. And they know that the
one agency which can do more
than all others to bring prosperity to the city is a gool live
board of trade. An effort has
twice been made recently to reorganize this very necessary
body which has long since been
allowed to lapse, but up to the
present their efforts have not
been attended with any great
degree of success- Another
meeting has been called for next
Tuesday night at the City Hall,
and it is-hoped that there will be
present enough business men to
ensure a reorganization.
Just at present there is a possibility that Cumberland can
secure the trade that will natu-
ralfy flow from the presence in
its immediate vicinity of something over 800 men earning good
wages, and which have every
prospect of remaining in this
locality for seven or eight years
at the least; and there is also
the possibility of inducing the
firm which will employ them to
locate their headquarters here.
But these will not come here of
their own accord, especially
when near-by towns are straining every effort to secure them.
It will require some energetic
work on the part of the citizens
of Cumberland to land the prize,
and it is up to the business men
to move quickly and energetically.
Mayor McDonald is doing his
utmost in the matter, but he
cannot be expected to do it all by
himself; he must have assistance. So, Mr. Business Man, it is
distinctly up to you!
the King, and they apparently
do not realize that the anthem
has in modern times come to be
looked upon as referring to the
nation and not to any one individual. In these days the British monarch represents the people as a whole and not himself
entirely, and when blessings are
called down upon him the petition extends to the people as
well.
There is probably no country
in the world where so little reverence is shown to the National
Anthem as in Canada. To the
■outh of the 49th parallel it is
not well for anyone who does nol
rise to his feet and stand at attention while the National Anthem of the United States is be-
!ng either sung or played. The
people in that country thoroughly understand the significance of
Ihe proceeding, and they are not
dow to show their displeasure
at any who wilfully disregard
the solemnity of the occasion.
If, however, there are those
who are not willing to show
their respects to the nation in
this matter, they should at least
have the good manners to remember those who are performing.
DISTINCTLY DISCOURTEOUS
We have noticed on several
occasions lately that, at the end
of performances at the theatre
where the National Anthem is
sung by the performers on the
stage, a great many people in
the audience pay absolutely no
heed to the singers but start off
in a mad rush for the exit. To
say the least this is decidedly
discourteous to the performers.
Also it is an affront to the whole
nation. No doubt there are some
who are averse to the singing of
the National Anthem because its
theme is centred in His Majesty

"To dance or not to dance" was
answered emphatically in the affirmative at the social evening held under
the auspices of the St. John's Ambulance Association in the Ilo-llo Dance

OPENING LEAGUE GAME
RESULTED IN A DRAW
INAUGURAL TILT IN THE DISTRICT FOOTBALL SCHEDULE
WOUND UP WITH NEITHER TEAM SCORING—MEN
FROM BEVAN HAD BETTER OF THE PLAY IN THE
FIELD, BUT REDOUBTABLE WALKER PREVENTED
THEM FROM PIERCING THE NET.
A LARGE CROWD followed the Cumberland B team to Bevan
to witness the first of the local soccer contests. The popularity of the game was evidenced by the Cumberland
rooters, who packed two cars on the special train. The game was
like all first of the season games and the play was rather broken;
although Bevan forwards had seventy minutes of the play.
Bevan's team looks like a strong contender for the McLean Cup,
and with a few more games together will take some beating.
Walker in goal for the B team saved his team a point, his work
between the sticks being one of the finest displays of goal keeping
seen in this district for a long time. The half-backs on both teams
played well and slipped into the back division when necessary,
which happened pretty often for Cumberland. Jackson, Williams
and Slaughter for the Cumberland team, and Herd, Nesbitt and
Brown were played very hard, in fact, so hard that they were all
in when the game ended. Bevan's forwards started out with a
dash, and they kept it up for three parts of the game. Davis on
the left wing, Bannerman on the right, kept drive, drive, drive
across the mouth of the goal, but Gibson and Gus Lapsansky were
unlucky and combined with poor shooting were unable to convert
vyhat seemed perfect chances. Walker was as cool as the proverbial cucumber beneath the terrible barrage of the forwards
but was always there when wanted, being in difficulties only once
throughout the game. Deconink and Boyd making their first for
the B team took lots of chances, but their kicking was poor in
places, although Boyd did some pretty clearing in close quarters.
Cumberland's forwards were young and inexperienced in the game
but they did their best and if the half-back line had been able to
help them instead of the defense it might have changed the whole
complexion of the game and given the public a chance to size up
the talent that Shearer has collected together in his aggregation
of soccer experts.
Bond, Houdock and Rickson look like comers, and Yates sizes
up more like a half-back. Quinn made a good try at outside left
but he was out of shape and could nrjt stand the pace. Bannerman
and Davis played like fiends to get a goal but the fault lay with
the inside men who could not convert.
Brown and Quinn have gathered together a fine team in the
Siberian city and all the other teams will have to hump to get
away with the honors.
The weather was beautiful and the playing field was in good
shape.. The Cumberland boys were well treated by the Bevan
A.C., Mr. Dave Chambers doing all in his power to make the
boys welcome, and altogether the District League got away to a
good start.  The teams lined up as follows:—
Bevan:—Westfield, Joe Lapsansky, McNeill, Brown, Herd,
Nesbitt, Bannerman, Gibson, Gus Lapsansky, Popropozky, Davis.
Cumbrland B Team:—Walker, Boyd, Deconink, Jackson.
Williams, Slaughter, Quinn, Rickson, Houdock, Bond, Yates.

eleven held the speedy Bevanltes to a
goalless draw. Peter will make a good
team out of the Bs with a little time
and patience.

Bevan Huskies came to town for another game and travelled back to the
Siberian City still minus a victory.
Bevan were not satisfied with the
standing of one of the Wobblles In the
the first league game, and the management of the Wobblles decided to
give them another chance for the leadership of the league. The game was
played Tuesday night and the
Wobblles fielded a stronger team than
ever, coming out on the long end of a
24-11 score. Bannerman, Miller and
Armstrong played a great game at forward, but were unable to penetrate
the Wobblles' defence. DeConlnk and
Williams turned all their lightning
raids to nothing and their defence
must have been good when the Siberians only managed to land one Held
basket, Joe Lapsansky, the popular
cartoonist, turning the trick as substitute for Miller. The ox-Mayor Bobble
Brown was there and Bob's game is
improving, although he clutched Conti,
the clever, in several loving embraces.
Walker scored well for the Wobblies,
and Conti pulled tricks on Brown at
guard that left him amazed. Sommerville met some hard bumps but played
the game through.   The teams:
Huskies—Bannerman, Miller, Armstrong, Westfield, Brown, Joe Lapsansky, substitute for Miller.
Wobblies—Walker, Conti, Sommerville, DeConlnk, Williams.

BEVAN LADS VANQUISH
CUMBERLAND STUDENTS
THE champions of the Upper Island League demonstrated
their ability to trim the pick of Cumberland District when
they put the All-Stars on the short end of a 3-1 score. Wednesday's game was more in the nature of a practice game for the
champions as training for their probable trip to South Wellington.
The game was hard played, although lacking the excitement of a
real contest with something at stake.
■ _ The champions were slow in getting away and it seemed for
a time that the All-Stars were going to give a lot of trouble to
Westfield, in goal for the champions. After quite a lot of desultory
play Williams made a nice opening for Bannerman on the right
wing. Bannerman crossed, but Joe Lapsansky cleared. Both All-
Star backs were playing a good game. McNeill's kicking was very
good, while Lapsansky placed well and took all opportunities. The
hard working Conti then veered the play to the left wing and his
combination work with Billy Brown was pretty to watch, but the
Star's backs were not to be denied nnd after a sudden rush bv
Jackson and Conti, McNeill clearer', to i'ugh Doherty at centre half
and then a little half-back tussle si u'ted that ended with the
Champion's goal in danger. Wilkinson and Cairns were worked
hard at this period, and alter some clever head work with Nesbitt,
Lapsansky and Gibson, the latter shot one that was impossible to
save. The Champions bucked up in th'* second half and seemed to
be in better shape than the All-Stars. They came from behind,
and after a combined rush by Conti, Brown a id Jackson, netted
their first goal. Conti did the necessary feet work and White,
who shapes up well in goal, was given no chance to handle.
The Champions were now pressing hard, and Doherty was
made to travel at great pare lo keep up with the Champion's
forwards. Nesbitt retains Iris old-time cleverness and kept his
position well. Bannerman was given a beautiful opportunity
on a pass from Tom Jackson. Lapsansky tried to clear an Bannerman slipped in between both backs and made a dash for goal;
had the goal keeper beat, and then kicked the ball into White's
hands.   It was a great effort and should have been a sure goal.
Fred Jackson then got in the scoring column, and after a nice
cross from Bannerman, tallied No. 2. The Stars seemed to be
waning, and Wilkinson and Cairns were not bothering much, although Bert Davis who is always dangerous made some nice plays
off Slaughter's work at half. Frank was always there and Nesbitt
was very tricky, but the tide would not be turned, and, after a
brilliant piece of play in midfield, Jack Williams swung a long ball
to outside right. Bannerman made a nice run and crossed to
centre after a little mixup in front of the het Billie Brown put a
little twister out of White's reach.   Score Three-One.
Teame were All-Stars—White, Joe Lapsansky, McNeill,
Doherty, Nesbitt, Slaughter, Gus Lapsansky, Rickson, Gibson, Coe.'

High School Boys.
The Bevan Midgets played the preliminary game to the Husky-Wobblies
fray on Tuesday night and walked
away from the brainy boys of the high
school. The brawn of Bevan both outplayed and outscored the students.
This game was one of the first of a
series between tbe school boys of this
city and the Siberian town. Mr. Colin
Campbell and Mr. Dave Chambers are
ligurling on making the games a regular weekly affair. The Islander hopes
they have much success ln their venture, as the youth of the town need
games like basketball In the winter
evenings, and the games wlll he a
benefit to the boys.

CITY COUNCIL NEEDS
INCREASED REVENUE
OWING TO HEAVY DEMAND ON CIVIC EXCHEQUER FOR
SCHOOL AND OTHER PURPOSES IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO INCREASE BOTH THE SCHOOL AND GENERAL
RATES—FORMER WILL LIKELY BE BOOSTED TO IHE
LIMIT AND THE LATTER INCREASED IN PROPORTION
THE citizens of Cumberland will have to pay more for the administration of the city's affairs this year than they did last
year—considerably more. For this increase the schools are
mainly responsible, the estimates of the School Board being in the
neighborhood of $6000 over those of 1919. There will be increases
in other directions also, the salaries of city officials being advanced
At the meeting of the City Council on Monday evening last
Aid. Parnham, chairman of finance, submitted a dr>.rt of the estimates for 1920, which showed the cost of running the civic affairs
this year to be roughly $27,000. Thin amount, however, only takes
in the fixed charges and does not *?llow for extra outlay which
crops up from time to time during the year and which can hardly
be estimated. According to the estimate of the finance committee, the revenue will be in the neighborhood of $29,000, so that the
council will have about $2000 of a leaway on which to do business.
The anticipated revenue from all sources is $28,543; of this
sum $11,500 will come from government grants to the schools,
while the remainder will be raised by taxes, both general and
school, license fees, police court fines, and the several other usual
sources of revenue. The estimated expenditures total $26,750,
lor which the schools are responsible for $19,315, the remainder
being swallowed up in running the affairs of the city in general.
The assessment totals for the city and outside district are:
Land, pole lines and water mains, $130,240; improvements. $123,-
107; giving a total of $253,347. Figuring the rate of taxation at
15 mills a revenue of $3800 would be derived for general purposes,
while the school rate of 13 mills would realize $3293.50. In the
extended school district the assessment totals are: Pole lines and
water mains, $8960; land, $237,200; improvements, $17,000; making a total of $229,160. Estimating tho school rate at 13 mills
the revenue from this source would be $297908.
Tho rates of taxation as quoted above will not, however, pro-
i ..ce revenue enough to meet the needs of the council, and it will
therefore be necessary to increase the rates both for school and
general purposes. In all likelihood the school rate will be raised to
the limit of 20 mills, while the general rate will be boosted in about
the same proportion, The amount of increase expected from the
increase of the school rate is $3377, but as no definite figure has
been set for the increase in the general rate no figures can be given.

JOYRIDING IN AN
IMAGINARY AIRPLANF
Cumberland Residents Knjoy All the
Thrills of a Trip In the Clouds
While on Terra Flrmu.
A most delightful social evening
was spent at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
H. Farmer, New Cottages, last Saturday, the occasion being tlie birthday
of .Mr. Farmer. The esteem In which
Mr. Farmer' Is held by his many
friends was shown hy the numerous
presents he received.
Many and varied were the games
conducted by the host for the entertainment of his guests, the most novel
being the "Initiation," which took thc
form of an airplane   ride.    Mr. W.
Walker took the place of the propeller,
■vhile Mr. Farmer officiated as tlie tail.
The body consisted of a plank, .Mrs.
Hudson   and   Mrs.   Lobley  as   wings.
The victim having taken his seat
and having the "joy stick." firmly In
his or her hand, thc engine was
started. Judging from the shrieks of
the lady passengers and tlie surprised
look on the faces of the men, they
must have beaten all altitude records.
In fact, Mr. P. Shearer and Mr. P. De
Conink, refused to believe they were
•till In Cumberland.
Great credit Is due the artists
amongst the guests, who provided the
musical programme, which was as
follows:—
Song, "End of the World With You,"
Mr. P. Shearer; song, "Please, Mr. Conductor," Mr. Ellis; song. "Sweet
Adeline," Mr. Docherty and guests;
recitation,    "Mother,"    Mrs.    Lobley;
song, "Wedding of I.aucliie HcGraw,"
Mr. J. Smith.
The floor was then cleared for dancing and until the "wee sma' hoors"

FARRIS "PASSES BUCK"
TO THE CITY COUNCIL
ATTORNEY-GENERAL SAYS THE CIVIC FATHERS ARE
RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LACK OF A POLICE MAGISTRATE IN THIS CITY—POSITION APPARENTLY BEING
USED AS A POLITICAL FOOTBALL WHILE DISTRICT
SUFFERS FOR WANT OF LAW OFFICER.
IT WOULD APPEAR that the position of police magistrate for
Cumberland is being and has been for some time used as a
political football. This was brought out all the more clearly
at the meeting of the City Council on Monday evening when a
letter was read from the attorney-general in reply to the request
of the City Council to have the position filled. In the meantime
the city is seriously handicapped because of the absence of an
official who can devote the time necessary to the proper administration of the law. Following is the letter of the attorney-general:
T. Mordy, Esq.,
City Clerk, Cumberland.
Re police magistrate tor Cumberland.
Dear Sir,—I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter of the 23rd inst.
with reference to the above. The whole trouble appears to be the motter of
remuneration of the police magistrate. Your council in the past has only
been ln the habit of paying $12 per annum or $1 per month, and on this basis
of remuneration apparently It is impossible to find a satisfactory individual
who will undertake this position.
if your council can see its way clear to pay a salary of say $300 a year,
which is the average salary paid hy similar municipalities, possibly we might
be able to And someone suitable.
Yours truly,
(Signed) J. W. deB. FARRIS,
< Attorney-General.
According to the statements of those who were in office at the
time, and also the minutes of the City Council early in 1918, it
appears that politics has more to do with the present unsatisfactory state of affairs than anything else. The attorney-general's
veiled insinuation of penury on the part of the city is hardly called
for. A couple of years ago, after the government at Victoria had
changed hands, the present administration decided to do away with
the magistrate who at that time occupied the bench here, presumably for political reasons. At about the same time the City Council, for some reason not openly stated, but which was readily inferred, decided to recommend that the salary for the position of
police magistrate be reduced from $25 a month to $1 a month, and
the recommendation was acted upon. It appears, however, that
the recommendation was not made for the purpose of saving
money to the city, but with the idea of getting rid of one who was
non persona gratia to those who were controlling the destinies of
the city at that time.
The plan succeeded, and the attorney-general appointed another man to the position. He, however, found that he could not
afford the time from his own business to attend to that of administering the law for practically nothing, and so he refused longer
to act. An attempt was made a couple of months ago to fill the
gap, but the man selected for the position declined to accept, with
the result that the city has been without a magistrate, either active
or passive, for some time.
Speaking of the matter this week, Mayor McDonald absolved
the present council or that of last year from any responsibility in
the matter. If the reduction of salary was made at the request
of the City Council, the present aldermen or those who served last
year had nothing whatever to do with it, and cannot therefore be
held responsible. The reading of the letter of the attorney-general
was the first intimation that Mayor McDonald had that the reduction in the remuneration of the police magistrate was due to a
recommendation of the City Council. .
Owing to the press of other business before the meeting, and
because the council wished to get all the facts in the case, it was
decided to leave the consideration of the attorney-general's letter
until the next regular meeting, in the meantime the city clerk to
procure all the data in connection with the whole affair.

LIGHT COST
TAKES DROP
Electric Lighting Company Reduces Price to City by About
30 Per Cent.
The countenances of the members of
the City Council were wreathed in
smiles of satisfaction when the announcement was made by His Worship
Mayor D. R. MacDonald that ho had
been successful in inducing the Electric Lighting Company to grant tlie
City a substantial reduction on the
cost of their street lighting. His
Worship stated that the company hud
agreed to reduce the rate from 7 cents
per kilowatt hour to B cents per hour.
This means a reduction of about 30
per cent and wlll mean a considerable
saving to the city. While the city
will not have to pay as much per hour
for Its lights, it is not likely that the
lighting bill will be very much reduced, as it has been felt for some
time that lights in the alley-ways in
the rear of Dunsmuir Avenue were
absolutely necessary, and the city will
now be enabled to Install them without any additional expense to the
people, and there may be a small reduction.
His Worship was heartily congratulated by the individual members of the
Council on the success which had so
speedily accompanied his efforts to
effect a reduction in the .cost of lighting.

HELLO!
Is a Brusque Word
No one wants to be unnecessarily brusque in manner, yet the use of "Hello" in answering the telephone
gives that impression. The better way is to tell the
caller who is talking. When you announce your name
or the name of your firm or department you eliminate
the necessity of additional enquiry. It facilitates your
telephone service and creates a favorable impression
right from the start.

CITY OFFICIALS GET
BOOSTS IN SALARIES
City Council to Increase Fay of Two
of Its Serianls for the Incoming
Year.
The requests of Mr. T. Mordy, city
clerk, and Mr. J. Baird, city nightman,
for Increases in pay, which were laid
over from the previous meeting of the
City Council, were considered on Monday evening, when it was decided to
grant the requests. The salaries of
these two officials will hereafter be
$55 and $120 per month, respectively.
The question of increasing the salary
of the chief of police was brought up,
but it was pointed out that that official
came under the police commissioners,
who no doubt would deal with the
matter.

The Art of
Dentistry
H WHEN IT COMES to a question of choosing your
Dentist, remember that academic qualifications alone
do not make a good dentist any more than they make
a good surgeon.
If THE GOOD DENTIST must have a sure hand, a
keen intelligence and a sound judgment. His judgment enables him to quickly diagnose the trouble;
his intelligence suggests the proper remedy, and his
manual skill carries out tho treatment with the
utmost efficiency and the least discomfort to the
patient.
i THAT IS MY CONCEPTION of a Good Dentist, and
these are the three qualifications in which I have
striven to perfect myself.

WANDERED FOR FORTY-EIGHT
HOURS NEAR COMOX LAKE
Samuel Shouldice Rescued in Exhausted Condition After
Two Days Search.
Lost  His Bearings When  Attempting to Reach Bevan
by Lake Trail.
Without any apparent reason. Samuel Shouldice, an employee at No. ;,
mine, on Friday morning of last week
asked for his time, drew what money
wns coming to him, and shortly utter-
ward disappeared. When leaving hi::
home in the Camp, Shouldice told his
wife that he had been discharged from
the mine and was going to seek work
at a shingle mill between Bevan and
No. 8 mine, and then started west
through Chinatown. When spoken to
regarding his discharge, the foreman
under whom Shouldice worked stated
that he had not been discharged, but
had been told when leaving his work
the day before not to return to the
mine until he had seen a doctor as to
his condition, which thc foreman did
not consider as being very favorable.
Late Friday night Mrs. Shouldice
reported the absence of her husband
to some friends, who immediately
sought out J. C. Mortimer, provincial
constable. As the hour was late nothing could be done in the way of a
search, but arrangements were made
to start out the following morning.
About noon when a call was made at
the Shouldice home it was found that
Mrs. Shouldice had gone to Comox
Lake in search of her husband. Securing an auto, Mr. Mortimer and an
Islander man started for the lake and
succeeded ln poking up Mrs. Shouldice about four miles from town,
and whom they brought back home.
L'p to this time no trace had been
found of Shouldice, but early on Sat
urday  evening the provlnclal  police | to be much older.
decided to send out Mr. G. Martinollo
and Mr. Dave Altken, two guides, over
the trail to Bevan by way of Comox*
md Black lakes. At 10 o'clock Mr.
Martinollo returned with the information that they had been able to trace
the footprints of the missing man in
the snow as tar as the edge of Black
Lake, but beyond that there were no
traces.
Accordingly, on Sunday afternoon
Constable Mortimer of Cumberland and
Constable Dawley of Courtenay, in
company with an Islander man, started
or Black Lake. While skirting the
.bore of White Bay they heard crier
of distress from across the bay, which
they answered, discovering that tliej
•ante from the lost man. A boat win
secured and in a short time the man
una brought safely across and placed
in a waiting auto and taken to the
Cumberland General Hospital.
When rescued, Sholdice was in at
exhausted condition and was unable
to move farther, the rescuing part;
being compelled to carry him, so weal:
had he beco'me. When taken to the
hospital he was placed under the cart-
of Dr. MacNaughton, and with the
splendid care received at that instltu
tlon he soon began to recover and has
been   improving  steadily  ever   since
The spot where Sholdice was picket!
up lies between White Bay and the
creek that empties out of Black Lake
into Comox Lake, a narrow strip ol
land not more than 100 yards wide
The unfortunate man could give ne
account of How he came to be there
beyond stating that he had lost hit
way In attempting to reach Bevan by
the lake trail. He was forty-eight
hours in the woods without anything
to eat, and when found his clothing
was saturated with water.
Friends of the unfortunate man
state they had noticed a wonderful
change In his appearance of late. Ht
is a man of about 50 years of age, bui
from his appearance he would he takei.

The Cumberland Board of School
Trustees will require over nineteen
housand dollars to carry them
through the year, according to the
estimates fixed at the last meeting of
the board. The largest Item, of course,
Is salaries, the amount required for
tuition being $13,925. This is considerably In excess of what was required
last year, caused by the increases ln
teachers' salaries. The Increases are,
however, not as great as were asked
for, but the board feels it cannot
recommend any further advances Just
now. Following are the estimates as
finally passed by the board and presented to tlie City Council lait Monday
evening, together with the explanatory
letter of the secretary, Mr. A. MacKinnon:
To His Worship the Mayor
and Aldermen,
City of Cumberland, B.C.
Gentlemen,—The following are the
estimates of expenditure for the Cumberland high and public schools for
the year 1920:
Salaries  $13,926.00
Janitor     1,500.00
Janitor (Japanese school)      150.00

j The intimate article of dress
known as the corset which
the majority of women wear
but know very little about"
IN this pertinent way the
well-known medical authority, Alice S. Cutler,
M. D., describes the most important garment in the wardrobe of women.
"Buy your corset carefully,"
warns Dr. Cutler. "No one
wants to be ill, and when
women realize that the constant wearing of an ill-fitting
corset helps to keep our hospitals open they will insist on
being properly fitted to corsets
instead of buying them hit or
miss."
We unreservedly recommend
Gossard Corsets, the original
front-lacing corsets, as the
complete expression of modern
corsetry. Every Gossard Corset is hygienically correct. If
properly fitted to the figure
for which it was designed,-and
carefully adjusted.each time it
is worn, it will mould that
$heyltKe In Front
^^^^^  AliceS. Cutler, li. D.
figure to the ideal proportions
of its tft>e. . It will give a
priceless all-day comfort. It
will safeguard the wearer
against those bodily ailments
that are often the result of
improper corsetry. It will
render a wearing service that
alone is worth the price paid
for the garment.
If possible, the new Spring and
Summer Gossards are superior
to those of the past season,
which were generally acknowledged to be without equal in
meeting the needs of active
womanhood from the standpoint of comfort, hygiene,
wear and figure improvement.
Our highly specialized fitted
service reflects our sincere appreciation of the important
relation a correctly fitted corset bears to your health, and
to that perfect figure poise
that gives the elusive charm
of style.

the amount would havo been very

Some Items recur annually and
make a very heavy drain, in particular
referring to the furnaces. The board
aro now Investigating the possibilities
of lnstalliing a system of hot water

Last autumn the public school hod
become overcrowded and the trustees
were obliged to open a new division in
the Japanese school building at a rental of $10 per month. This is only a
temporary arrangement and permanent arrangements will have to be made
for the accommodation of the school
population in the Cumberland school
district. The trustees are Investigating the possibilities of enlarging the
new school building by adding another
storey to the present building. If this
can be done it will be a matter of considerable saving to the ratepayers.
This matter will also be reported to
you as soon as the board can secure
the necessary information.

of getting a home of their own and
also that the city would benefit to
considerable extent by the erection of
new houses, It waB decided to do every
thing possible to help those for whom
the money had been voted.
PUBLICITY COMMISSIONER

New Official Named Whose Business
It Will Be to Keep Cumberland
