UP" Is Coming
Cumberland Islander
To the Ilo-Ilo
April 14,15,16
The most successful meet in the
history of the Vancouver Island and
Coast district branch of tbe British
Columbia Mine Safety Association
took place on Saturday last in the
Ilo-Ilo Hull. Quito a lot of the success was due to the efforts of the
secretary, Mr. W, H. Moore of Na-
■nimo, ably asisted by the local officers, and also the fact that Nanaimo sent nine teams up to compete
in the various events. A notable feature this year was thc entry into
these competitions of teams from the
Comox Logging and Railway Company. As the Logging Company's
teams won one first and two seconds
the confidence placed in them by
their instructors was justified. The
first to congratulate the loggers was
their competitors. The officials of
the meet also extended their congratulations and Mr. Robert Filberg, general manager of the Logging Company was also very pleased with the
success of his men.
The gathering was notable for the
large number of prominent persons
of the province in attendance. Men
from the various mining centres and
others interested in Mine Rescue
work were largely represented and
besides the Hon. W. A. McKenzie,
minister of mines, who presented the
prizes to the successful contestants,
we noticed, Lt.-Col. Charles W. Villiers, general manager Canadian Collieries and the Western Fuel Corporation of Canada, James Dickson,
chief mine inspector, Robert Dunn,
deputy minister of mines, Bruce A.
McKelvie, director of publicity for
the government of British Columbia,
Thomas Graham, consulting engineer
Charles Graham, superintendent of
the Morden Mine, George O'Brien
and T. R. Jackson, mine inspector:;,
A. Auchinvole, of Union Bay, J.
Stewart of the government mine rescue station, Nanaimo, S. Anderson,
representative of a well known Mine
Safety appliances, -who had come
over specially from Seattle and many
Dr. G. K. MacNaughton, M.L.A.,
Dr. E. R. Hicks (Cumberland), Dr.
Bissett, Duncan, and Dr. Ingham of
Nanaimo, acted as judges, assisted
by Messrs. A. J. Taylor, J. Barton,
J. Delain and T. Dclaney.
Great interest was shown by the
large number of people present as
the various tests were entered into
and the success of the Comox Logging Company's teams, in this then-
first year, caused much favorable
comment. According to the chief
judge Dr. Bissett, the hardest test
of the evening was that assigned to
the Men's novice class, won by a
Cumberland team and the best work
of the evening was accomplished by
Mrs. Hudson's team, of Cumberland.
In presenting the prizes at the
conclusion of the contest, the minister of mines, after a brief introduction by T. R. Jackson, complimented
the teams on the showing they had
made. He assured all present that
thc department of mines intended
at all times to assist in this good
work, and offer every possible encouragement in first aid ti'aining.
In handing the prizes out the "minister offered words of advice and encouragement. In addition to the following being awarded prizes, mine
rescue certificates were presented to;
Messrs. S. Lewis, J. Dick, D. Frost,
Colville Graham and N. Hethering-
A synopsis shows there were thirty-six teams competing, of which
twelve were from Nanaimo, seventeen from Cumberland and seven
from Camp !i, Comox Logging Co.
The results showed that Nanaimo
teams won two firsts and three seconds, while Cumberland teams won
three firsts and one second and Camp
3, one first and two seconds.
Dinner was served nt the Waverley Hotel following the competition
which was followed by a dance, terminating at midnight.

Use of Pulverized
Coal Causes Alarm
To Oil Interests
Coal   Tonnage   Expected  to   Be
Doubled Thii Year
!    New York, April 3.—Rumors of efforts made by oil interests to remove
| the competition of pulverized coal in
j the fuel market, are being voiced here
I in well-informed circles.
I   Last year the national consumption
!of pulverized fuel was 25,000,000 tons
and it is expected that this year that
tonnage will be doubled. With capital
turning to steam instead of hydro for
I thc production of power, with the success of experiments by ships using pul-
j verized coal, and with the growth of
I powdered coal's use for heating pur-
| poses, the oil men are manifesting
increasing alarm.
It is stated here by men closely in
touch with the situation that some
years ago the Burgess process for pulverising coal was bought up by oil interests when it was offered for sale
in the United States. The process was
perfected In Europe.
Imperial Singers
In Grand Concert
It is seldom that the residents of
Cumberland and district are given
the opportunity of hearing such artistes as the Welsh Imperial Singers
who, under the direction of R. Festyn Davies, made their appearance
at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre on Monday
night. The hall was comfortably filled with a very appreciative audience
which sat in rapt attention throughout the two-hour programme of glees
part-songs and solos. Their repertoire is indeed varied, "Ye Banks and
Braes," "Killnrney," and "John
Peel" being rendered as effectively
and pleasingly ns selections in their
native tongue. Of the soloists it
would be a difficult task to pick out
an oustanding one, each being an
artiste of great merit. Morlais
Wrench, bnss, in "A Floral Dance",
Jack Newberry, bass, in "The Mighty
Deep", Elywn Edwards, the seventeen-year-old tenor and the youngest member of the party in "There's
a Land", Harry Williams, one of the
I swecsest tenor voices we have ever
heard in  "My Little Welsh Home"
■ and Harry Jones in "The Toreador,"
I were each enthusiastically recalled,
graciously responding. The programme ripened with the party singing "March of the Men of Harlech",
and ended with the rousing "Sailors
Norman Evans, nt the piano, was
(an efficient accompanist, und of tho
director, Mr. Festyn Davies, it may
. be said that he is in a class by himself, wielding the baton in a very
masterly manner.
Following the concert, the party
was entertained bye the Cumberland
and district Welsh Society at a social
in the Memorial Hall.
The singers stayed overnight in
Cumberland, going to Courtenay on
Tuesday morniing to fulfill an engagement at the Gaiety Theatre.
Work Proceeding
At Bowling Green
During the week workmen were
busy at the bowling green in an effort to have perfect turf by the time
summer rolls round. The secretary
of the club, Mr. T. D. Robertson, received at the week end, a communication from Mr. Donaldson, of Vancouver, giving the result of the analysis of the soil which he had taken
over with him a couple of weeks ago.
The analysis proved that the soil
showed a marked deficiency of nitrogen but Mr. Donalson stated that
the experts who had conducted the
analysis were of the opinion that a
dressing of a nitrate fertilizer would
[ tend to rectify this deficiency. A
I dressing has been compounded by
j Mr. Donaldson and full instructions
sent over to Mr. Robertson as to how
; to proceed to ensure a perfect turf
' by summer. The instructions are
being carried out to the letter and it
is hoped that by July 1st, the Cumberland Bowling green will be ready
for play.
I All bare spots are being thoroughly
j forked and the fertilizer will be scat-
! tered broadcast over the whole area
j of the bowling green, and after the
| application of the fertilizer it will
be allowed to work for one week.
If no rain should fall in the meantime, the green will receive a thorough soaking with the hose. After
this has been accomplished seeding
and top dressing will be undertaken
and the whole finished off with a
light rolling.
That the club will be a success
goes without saying as a large number of the residents intend taking up
the game.
Word was received this week from
Thomas Taylor, bowling green bowl
manufacturer, of Glasgow, that thc
bowls for the Cumberland club would
be shipped out as early as possible
and would most probably be in Cumberland by the end of April.

Review of the New
Liquor Legislation
The just ended second session of
British Columbia's seventeenth parliament has been notable for legislation on broad lines calculated to exert an important influence on the
destinies of the province, expansion
of its maintaining industries nnd
augmentation of the prosperity and
the contentment of its citizens. Of
the eighty odd measures enacted,
five are of outstanding significance
and interest. What appears to the
Islanders to be of great interest is
Liquor Legislation
Radical changes in the Government Liquor Act are accomplished
by the 1930 amendments, by which
administration is restored to a three
member board appointed by the
Lieutenant Governor-in-Council and
responsible thereto, the principle of
government control, is enunciated by
the lectorate, thus being substituted
for control by the Legislature, adopted during the Liberal regime.
The purchase as well as the sale
of liquor in British Columbia is now
assigned to this Board; while various
sections of the amending measure
crystallize in a general tightening
up for the enforcement of moderation, reduction of illicit trafficking
in liquor, maintenance of revenue,
and greater public convenience.
Permission is accorded certain
recognized and specified return soldier organizations to sell beer to
members (and their guests) only;
propriety clubs—regarded as a foremost source of illegal sales—are
abolished; the Mnnitoba system of
padlocking the bootlegging establishments for as long as an entire twelve
month upon second conviction with-!
in one year, is adopted; liquor ad-;
vertising otherwise than in newspapers is forbidden as from January
next; the use by one person of another's permit for the purchase of
liquor is made a more serious offence; and distillers and brewers desirous of selling to the government
are required to pay license fees
equalling one per cent of the value
ofjjieir properties  ■ ....* .
Power is taken to fix special prices
from  time  to  time  at  which  pure
grain alcohol may be sold for hospital purposes and to the University
for scientific uses; the obtaining of
permits is made obligatory upon pro-!
vincial wine-makers, who are author-1
ized to warehouse their products or,
sell to any wine company approved •
by the Control Board or to the board j
itself or for export, tliis provision not
applying,   however,   to   home   wine-
making    for    private    consumption,
from provincial grown fruits.
With the object of further curtailing bootlegging, major or minor,
no unsealed liquor or beer other
than such as has been lawfully purchased from a vendor may be transported by water between places within British Columbia except under a
permit issued in such behalf; all
brewery or distillery premises must
be open at all reasonable hours for
inspection by officers of the Board
or constables by whom infractions
of the law may be suspected; and an
inspector is assured access to the
books and accounts of all breweries
and distilleries for the verification of
returns  and  transactions.
Upon conviction of illegality, not
only does all liquor become seizable
and forfeitable, but in addition, any
vessel, launch, boat, automobile,
truck or other vehicle used in the
transportation of such liquor may
be seized und forfeited.
Liquor Control Board members,
under the revised and amended legislation, hold office during good behaviour, but may be removed for
cause. Thc Board is required to report from time to time to the Attorney General on such matters of
administration or enforcement as he
may desire to be informed upon.

Severs   Connection   With   Canadian   Collicriei
It was a matter of extreme gratification to the members of the city
council on Monday night at the regular meeting when Alderman .1. Ledingham on behalf of the delegation
which interviewed It.-Col, Charles W,
Villieries, reported that through the
Colonel, the Canadian Collieries
would donate thc sum of $1,000 towards the new fiie truck, winch it
IS hoped will be delivered on Wednesday.
The city clerk was instructed to
write to the Canadian Collieries
thanking them for their generous donation.
There was very little business before the council and only one communication, Mi- It. Filberg, of the
Comox Lugging ami Railway Company wrote with regard to the timber left standing at the city park,
Lake Cumberland and notified the
Council that unless some definite
answer was received by the loth of
May, his company would proceed
with the cutting of the timber. A
copy of Mr. Filberg's letter was sent
to Dr. MacNaughton, M.L.A., with
a request that he do Ids best to obtain an answer from the government as early as possible.
Bills and accounts to thc amount
of $228.22 were referred to the finance committee and if found correct ordered to  lie paid.

FRIDAY, APRIL Oth, 1930.
The Cumberland Islander
WE think our fathers fools, so wise we grow;
Our wiser sons, no doubt, will think us so.
Twenty years ago I thoroughly agreed with the
lirst line of this immortal couplet. Today I smile
sadly and nod approval of the second.
Life, as the famous and much radioed Andy
would say, is nothing but "a big business proposition." When we are young we are all Presidents
of the Fresh Air Taxicab Company, or Thc Universal Association of the Young—at, least, we feel
sure we should be. Dad has his good points, but
alter all he is remnant of the dark ages aud
should have been put on one shelf along wilh
bustles and red flannel petticoats.
The years pass and we answer to the call ol'
dad from some up-to-the-minute son or down-to-
the-last-garment daughter whose glance tolls us
what he or she is too polite to say—that we, too,
are coasting on life's toboggan.
I!ut we employ a score or more of these bright
youngsters and furnish Ihem with lhe means to
Haunt their wisdom in our faces. We pass laws
to make their prospects brighter than our own.
and build jails to house those who break our laws.
We support the worthy causes and sometimes the
unworthy. We maintain homes, churches, theatres and golf clubs for the young who could not
carry them on as yet. We take pride in our own
Edisons, our Fords and a host of others who have
long since passed the wondrous twenties.
And although wc agree with the immortal Pope
as to what our sons think we are, wc cannot help
hut put up a feeble argument in our behalf. Are
we, who once were the bright and shining lights
of this grand and glorious country, after an additional twenty years of experience, actually fools?
Experience surely does not deal so harshly wilh
those who attain such an elevation in twenty
years. Mathematically it seems impossible that
perfection plus twenty equals puerility. Rather
should it equal puissance.
Hut Harold 'Teen insists that we are wrong,
even as you and I insisted when we were "wiser
sons" and our dads were doddering fools of forty
SPEAKING of the value of Scout Training and
preparedness in fitting boys for any type of
work or adventure in which they may participate, Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd recently
radioed to the New York Time:', in New York the
following tribute to Sea Scout Paul .'.. Siplc, Boy
Scout member of his expedition.
"Sea Scout Paul A. Siple took up his work in
the expedition as a man among men. He ^tood
regular deck watches on shipboard and turned
himself into aide seaman on a full rigged sailing
At the base he was given a dog team to drive
and soon learned to handle the dogs like a sourdough and soon went out on tlie trail. Paul was
given the young pups to train and turned out a
most useful team that answered many calls for
odd jobs around camp. As zoologist he has worked diligently in getting specimen's of antarctic
bird and animal life, spending many hours in
cleaning and preserving thc skins, lie has also
done good work in taking depth soundings in the
Bay of Whales and has been a keen observer of
his many pup team trips on the bay ice of animal
life and he has taken his turn at all tasks such
as shovelling snow, house duties, kitchen police
and standing night watches. Paul is now on the
whaler "Larsen" en route to Wellington in charge
of live penguins that we are making an effort to
bring backto the stales and will rejoin his ship
in New Zealand."
What Admiral Byrd says of Sea Scout Siple
would be true of most Scouts. On many adventures, in many lines of endeavor, whether in work
or play, Scout I raining has proven its worth.
Wells Without Water By Rev. A. B. Rhinow
Tilt; TRAIN stopped at a station called Lukeview.
"What lake does that refer tor' 1 asked a fellow
"Thove is no lake", he answered looking up from his
newspaper. "There was one, generations ago. But it
i.s all dried tip now.    Nothing remains but the name."
Nothing remains but thc name!
And 1 thought of fine customs that at one time were
full of power, but whose spirit bad faded until nothing
was felt but the name.
Patriotic holidays, at one time full of martyr meaning,
are now nothing more than a name to thousands who
think only of spreading a table cloth on the grass on
that day and munching sandwiches.
Religion^ truth, instilled in tho years of impressionable
youth watched over and prayed over by parental love,
is exposed to the blight of carelessness until nothing is
left but a name.
They are wells without water. They invite the thirsty
but they have nothing to quench tie thirst.
And how we like to cover up the emptiness with elaborate decorations. Where there is spirit, there is simplicity; where there is emptiness, there is ornament.
Let us revitalize our institutions by drawing from
the inexhaustible fountains of divine spirit.

Boost Your Town
To  the  Editor,
"Boost your own town, circulate
your money at home and help your
town to prow." This is the statement
so oft expressed in country newspapers, and an admirable sentiment
it is; but altruistic indeed is the man
who is willing to pay the unpaid lulls
of his shiftless neighbor, for the
sake of boosting his own home town,
yet this is what is expected of him
when he is asked to pay tiie prices
of many small town retail dealers.
Many an unwary town is overtaken by an ever present menace, the
Sleeping-sickness, where the merchants in soniambulislic manner set
their prices and conduct their business. Because of the dealer's wide
open eyes, and habitually courteous
manner, their customers are unaware
of their true condition ,and grum-
blingly fall in line with their policy;
instead of putting forth a concerted
effort to arouse these drousy purveyors of merchandise.
Could  the  merchants  revise  their

A bad breath is altogether unde-'
sirablc and, for that reason consideration should be given by everyone
to the causes of the condition in (
order to avoid its occurrence.
The fermentation of food particles
in the mouth will certainly cause a
bad breath. This commonly occurs
when food is held in a decaying tooth
cavity. Proper care of the teeth, by
brushing them regularly after meals
and— most important time of all—
at bedtime, in order to get rid of
food particles, and by the securing
of regular dental care will prevent
bad breath from a source that is
When there is actual disease of
the mouth, such as pyorrhoea, or of
the adjoining parts, bad breath may
result either from the condition itself or from tiie fermentation of
food particles which the condition
favours. A healthy throat and a
mouth kept clean hy regular use of
the tooth-brush are the first considerations in preserving an inoffensive
In addition to the local condition,
Which act as a cause of bad breath,
there are general condition which
bring at about. We think, first, of
the digestive tract because in our
minds a bad taste in tho mouth is
frequently associated wilh digestive
upsets.   Bad breath does occur quite
■ policies, nnd in revising reduce their
"overhead" by having stated hours
for running their deliveries instead
of usi.ig their trucks to illustrate
perpetual-motion; could they advertise their goods more frequently, at
lower prices, their increased turn-i
over would soon repay them the moments seeming loss. And could these
merchants bestir themselves suffi-
clently to meet tho ctiy prices, plus j
a fair profit—and no one would be-1
grudge them that-—then their com-,
mun.ities would not even consider the
trouble of shopping out of town.
Ah yes! Boost your own town by
all means, but invite the co-operation of your merchants in this Boosting.

often among those who overeat, or
whose elimination is faulty. The bad
breath, in such cases, is reallya symptom of an abnormal condition of
the digestive tract and is regarded
as such by the individual's physician.
Under such conditions, the remedy
lies in altering the mode of living.
A proper diet, avoidance of over-eating or of over- indulgence in one or
more articles of diet, regular elimination, increased intake of water, and
exercise are thc points which should
first be dealt with.
Tho correction of any unpleasant
odour should always be thought of
along the lines of the removal of the
cause. It is much prefenable to
overcome body odours by regular
bathing than by attempting to overpower them by using perfumes. In
lhe same way, the logical manner
of dealing with had breath is to remove its cause.
The treatment of symptoms is necessary, hut their cure and tlie prevention of their recurrence depend
upon thc treatment of the cause, the
of the condition. It never pays to
temporize; it is always satisfactory
lo get to grips with the cause.
