Appealing Story
Of Sahara Desert
At the Ilo-llo Theatre on Friday
and Saturday.
A desert Btory which treats the native Arabs as human beings, and
which la tremendously appealing and
dramatic, Is "Burning Sands," a Oeo.
H. Melford production ot Arthur
Welgall's successful novel adapted by
Olga Prlntilau and Waldemar Young.
This Paramount picture has as its
central character Daniel Lane, a
student and philosopher who lives
among the Arabs and who, by his Insight and sympathy, learns to know
tbem as the ordinary man never does,
and so finds In them much to admire.
Lane la a splendid character, sympathetically portrayed by Milton 8111s.
The other featured part, that of
Muriel, was allotted to Miss Hawley.
Muriel la the present-day type uf
pleasure-loving, materialistic young
woman, who refers to herself as
"emancipated," but who Is really a
slave to her whims and desires. She
is an English girl, the daughter of
Lord Blair, His Majesty's "Chief Commissioner to Egypt and the Soudan."
Muriel, petted and spoiled, accustomed to admiration and flattery from
every man, meets Lane, and out of
the encounter of these contrasting
characters grows the drama. Lane
does not flatter; he admires, but ln
silence, because while he realised
Muriel's great charm, he is convinced
that it would be a great mistake for
him to yield to it. Muriel is fascinated by this man, so different from any
In her circle of courtiers.
As time goes on, she finds htm "too
good to be true." His apparent indifference to her, bo unprecedented in
her experience, piques her Interest.
She decides tbat he must prefer the
native women, and Jumps to the conclusion tbat he has a harem in the
desert. His enemies' maliciously corroborate ber theory. Meanwhile, she
Is falling In love with him. Aa a background to this love Interest, there is
a visualisation ot the disagreement between the British Government and the
native leaders which looms so large
In Egypt to-day.
The story rises to its climax as
Muriel, In love with Lane and baffled
by his indifference, determines to
break It down by flouting convention
and going to him at his.oasis in the
desert. When she arrives there and
offers herself, Lane Is pi*'"'s»pfhe supreme test. But he conquers himself, and proves to Muriel Ihat there
is no harem, no weakness in his character—and no woman In his life.
Convinced, she prepares to return to
Cairo, when she receives her surprise.
The oasis Is attacked by renegade
Arabs, led by the Sheik's traitorous
son, who seek to kill Lane and negotiate with the British government for
the return of the oasts for a large sum.
In the fierce battle which ensues,
Muriel reveals that she is at heart, a
genuine and true woman, and such
a one as Lane could love. So they are
brought together on a sound footing
of mutual admiration and esteem.
An excellent cast supports Miss
Hawley and Mr. Sills in "Burning
Sands," including such well-known
players as Jacqueline Logan, Robert
Cain, Winter Hall, Louise Dresser and
others.

while It has stood the test of time, In

From the fact that plans have been

shown some of the advantages as was
proved by both speakers.
Wants to Pay More Taxes.
Mrs. G. Richardson, in a neat
speech, declared that it was absolutely essential that manual training and
domestic science be Introduced into
the schools. " I would willingly," said
Mrs. Richardson, "in order that our
boys and girls may benefit from tbls
training, pay still more taxes into the
city treasury."
We think that Mrs. Richardson expressed the sentiments of all those
members present. They urged that
the subject of manual training be at
once commenced.
Not only the members of the P.-T.
Association, but every citizen iu Cumberland, must consider this matter.
Do your want your boy or girl to be
trained ln these necessary accomplishments? It is your duty to voice
your opinion.
Mrs. Richardson mentioned an increase iu taxation. Might we suggest
that part of the Poll tax could be used
to no better advantage than that of
bringing Into our schools the teaching
of domestic science and manual
training.
After a unanimous vote of thanks to
Messrs. Wood and Webb, a committee
was appointed of Rev. W. Leversedge,
Mr. J. Sutherland and Mrs. George
Richardson to gather data from places
where such departments wsre an addition to the ordinary school curriculum.
The report of the Grounds Committee by Convenor Hood showed that
very soon quite a number ot amusement and developing apparatus would
bs on the grounds.
MEETING OF THE
BOARD OF TRADE
The regular meeting of the Board
ot Trade was held on Tuesday night
when a line representation of members were present. President J,
Sutherland occupied the chair. After
the reading of the minutes, several
matters came up for discussion, chief
of which was the dllatorlness of the
Associated Boards of Trade of Vancouver Island in presenting the resolutions which were carried at the annual meeting in Cumberland last
August. This delay was very con
splcious, especially In the matter of
a resident Judge for this district, for
although all the Boards of Trade represented, which consisted of eleven
altogether, unanimously passed a resolution in favour of tbe motion to
that effect, supporting both Courtenay,
Cumberland and the district in this
matter. This same motion had never
left the office of the secretary ot the
Associated Boards. The Importance
of this matter can be readily seen
when a large deputation had already
gone from Courtenay to interview the
Government on the matter, and
another was leaving Cumberland soon
ou the same mission.
The upper end ot the Island feel
more deeply the necessity of their
Just claims being brought before the
proper authorities. So long as the
claims coming to Victoria and the
lofty centres come In order, it looks
as If the promised support was be
lug sidetracked for some motives of
their own. Tbe Comox district has
no intention of abandoning their efforts ln getting that which was rightfully promised but which was side-
trucked through some means or other.
Mr. A. MacKinnon was appointed to
represent the board in this matter at
Victoria, and it is hoped the efforts nf
the deputation will be fruitful. Various other matters were discussed,
after which the meeting adjourned to
meet on the 2nd Tuesday in December.
IMPORTANT LEAGUE
GAME ON SATURDAY
An Important Upper Island Football League game will be held on the
local grounds when the famous Nanaimo City eleven pay a return visit.
Cumberland now head the Upper Island league with 13 points, but it will
be necessary for the locals to win
the two remaining games to cinch the
league. The game stalls at 2.30 today (Saturday) with Mr. A. S. Jones
refereelng.
The following will do duty for
Cumberland: Wilson, (.'oilier and
Campbell; Brewster, Conti and Mona-
han. Milligan, Plump. Fowler, Hitchens, Home.
EXPLOSION IN
WAKESIAH MINE
KILLS TWO MEN
Just as we were going to press
word was received of an explosion
that took place this (Friday) morning
In the Wakeslah mine, Nanaimo, one
of Ihe Western Fuel Company's
shafts, resulting in the death of two
men, Alt. Odgers, shot-lighter, and
Gib. McBroom, pumpman. As far as
could be ascertained no other men

lacking, but it is presumed to be a
gas explosion. Further particulars
will be published after an Investigation.
Both Odgers and McBroom are well
known to many residents here, and

Sunday against Ladysmlth was of an
Interesting naturo. The following
notes contributed by an unbiased
spectator will lie read with interest:
Cumberland journeyed to Ladysmlth
ou Sunday last to play their last away-
(lxtlire In the Upper Island league.
Ladysmith met their first defeat In a
competition game this season, coming
out ou the short end of a 2-1 score.
A large crowd witnessed the game.
If had rained heavily during the night
and iu (lie forenoon, but fortunately
cleared up before (ho game started.
A. S. Jones refereed and set tite ball
rolling promptly at 2.30 p.m.
i'i'ie ground, especially at the north
end, was very slippery on account of
recent rains and It was a difficult matter for players to keep their feet or
to judge the ball.
Cumberland defended Hie Ladysmlth
end, and immediately on the kick-off
made tracks for Ladysmith's goal.
Play continued in Ladysmith's half of
the field I'or a few mlnuteB, but tho
forwards found the going bad on the
slippery ground. The ball was hard
to control und the passing could not
be judged with any accuracy.
Play begain to open out and became
more even, both ends being visited In
turn, but neither goal-keeper was
seriously tested.
After about ten minutes, Plump let
Milligan away on the right; Milligan
centered, and Orr, Ladysmith's centre
ball*, unable to reach (lie hall with his
head pulled il down with his hand.
A penalty was awarded, Hitchens took
the kick and gave Boyd no chance,
the Gail just passing under the croeB-
liar. Play continued fairly oven,
Ladysmlth scoring Just before half
lime. A line shot from tho right
struck the upright and rebounded Into
play, llerllnveaux, outside left, rushing up met the rebound and scored
with a beautiful shot which gave Wilson no chance. Half-time arrived
wilh the score one each.
On resuming. Cumberland literally
smothered the Ladysmlth defence, play
being confined lo their end for practically the entire 45 iniiHiies. Only tho
brilliant work of Boyd In goal prevented a big score. His saving of a
shot from Hitchens was really brilliant. About 15 minutes from time.
Fowler secured just inside tlie 18-yard
line and cleverly beating the backs,
scored with a slioi nicely placed well
out ot Boyd's reach,

Novelty Concert
By Capetown Boys
The Novelty Concert put on in the
Gaiety Theatre here on Monday night
by the members of the crew of H. M,
S. "Capetown" was a great success
financially as well as from point of
attendance; the largest audience that
has ever been admitted to the theatre
being present to thoroughly enjoy the
amusement on tap. One hundred
members of the crew of the cruiser
also attended, having been brought up
from Comox ln cars kindly loaned for
the purpose by citizens of Courtenay
and vicinity. The entertainment had
been arranged under the direction of
Leading Seaman Thornlley for the
benefit of the Courtenay branch of the
Boys' Naval Brigade, and Capt. Lloyd,
who is chief officer in the movement
here, was chairman for the evening.
Mayor Slmms addressed the audience
and then the programme was started.
From the first Item, whicli was a
banjo duet, to the last, entitled
"Capetown Queries," ln which a pair
of sailor boys appeared ln a comedy
role, interest wss keen and applause
was generously given. The comic
song by Cooper Wiggins, entitled
"Cheese It," the boxing match, the
cutlass swinging, and the "Holy Poly"
man were the features that provoked
much favorable comment. After the
show a dance was held, to which
many stayed and spent an enjoyable
time.
grounds. Fishing licenses to the
little brown men had been cut down
thirty per cent, which he deemed
quite enough for a start. If the licenses had been absolutely shut off
all at once there perhaps would notVe
enough white men available to take
up the work 1 and this condition would
undoubtedly be taken advantage of by
the big Interests concerned—to say
.here was a shortage ot labor and they
would have to employ the Orientals.
It was better to eliminate them gradually to give the white men a chance
to re-enter the business. Other questions on which Mr. Neill touched were
the Soldier He-establishment and the
Civil service. He told of how this
problem had been handled and said
flint the Indebtedness of each place on
stock .equipment, land, etc., had been
combined and the repayment of the
entire sum spread over a period of
twenty-five yenrs. Interest was not to
be charged in some instances until
the year 1926, and ou others, earlier;
according to the length of time a man
iiad been on the land. This arrangement would give each one a fair
chance to get a proper start. In reply
to a question, Mr, Neill said that he
thoughl the Civil Service Commission
was a useful institution hut (hat It
was poorly operated. Unless a person
was on the Inside, there was little use
applying for a position, as great favoritism had been shown in tlio selection ot Government employees. He
had found that oul from experience,
and he knew that one minister had
been treated the same way. At the
close of the member's address, Mr. A.
Cleland moved, and Mr. A. Urquhart
.seconded, a vote of thanks to Mr. Neill
for the good work he had done since
being elected, also his presence there
that night. This was carried with
much applause.
Mr. A. W. Neill
Gave A Most
Interesting Talk
Mr. A. W. Neil, MP., visited Courtenay last week-end aud held a mooting
in the Gaiety Thealrc after the picture
show on Saturday night. He did this
for the purpose of telling his constituents what transpired al tho last
session of Parliament at Ottawa, especially mentioning the things that
the people of Comox aro vitally Interested in. One of these is the admission of oleomargarine Into Canada
to compete with butter. He cited what
had been done to safeguard the public so that they would not he misled
by the arguments of the men and concerns who manufacture this butter-
substitute, He criticised the altitude
of the Hon. Dr. Tolmle, former Minister of Agricuture, In (his regard, and
said that the erstwhile minister had
taken up seven columns of " Hansard,"
the official report of the House of
Commons, ln defending oleomargarine.
Mr. Neill also keenly criticised the
Hon. H. H, Stevens for his non-usp-
port of a higher rate of duty on fuel
oil. The member for Vancouver had.
when ln Courtenay before the election, promised that he would support
such a measure, but when the time
came and he had an opportunity to
do so, he was not there with the goods.
In regard to the Importation of
Chinese eggs, Mr. Neill said that the
Act had been so amended Ihat It was
now unlawful to expose Chinese eggs
for sale without being marked as such,
and that all bakery goods In the manufacture of which these eggs had been
used, must be so marked. Mr. Neill
went on record us absolutely opposed

BADMINTON CLUB
MAKES EXCELLENT
PROGRESS HERE
Many  New   Members  Joining  Ufr-
Court at Anglican Chun* HaU
Occupied a Night* a Week.
Badminton, one of the most popular
of indoor winter games, is making excellent progress in this city. Many
new members have joined the club
this winter; the seniors occupy the
court at the Anglican Church hall on
Tuesdays and Thursdays, whilst the
senior scholars of Holy Trinity Sunday School have also organized a club,
occupying the court on each Saturday
evening.
Anyone Interested in this popular
game is cordially invited to the court
ou any of these evenings. "Bud" Rose,
who Is secretary of the senior club,
will be pleased to enroll a few mora
members.
Badminton was introduced Into
. England from India In 1873, and It has
been described as the most strenuous
of Indoor games, and to judge from
tbe attitude of some ot the members
of the local club when playing this
fascinating game, the cult of the
shuttlecock justifies the description.
NANAIMO RUGBY TEAM
MAY VISIT VANCOUVER
DURING XMAS HOLIDAYS
It has been suggested in local rugby
circles that the Vancouver Rugby
Union bring the Nanaimo team along
tor a game or two during the Christmas holidays, and It is not unlikely
that the officials will do so. Nanaimo
Is not In the B. C. series this season,
but has organized a strong team and
hopes to revive the game in tbe Coal
City through a series of exhibition
matches.
(From Monday's "Province.")
Cumberland Rugbylsts also hope to
have Nanaimo play an exhibition gama
here soon.
CUMBERLAND TIGERS
PLAY FIRST RUGBY
FOOTBALL GAME
The people of Cumberland witnessed the first game of Rugby football ever played In the Comox district
al the Wye on Sunday last
The game was called for 3 p.m. with
navy boys of the warship "H. M. S.
Capetown." The navy team having
been transported to Cumberland by
the big Collieries Co. truck, and prepared themselves for the game at tha
Athletic Club, the headquarters of the
Cumberland Tigers.
After the game the navy boys were
set-up to supper at Farmer's boarding
house, a meal which they showed
signs of enjoying very much.
The game was one sensation after
another for the spectators; a punt up
the field, then a wild dash back by a
player carrying the ball, only to be
tackled and thrown down to the
ground, followed by a stampede of
klcklng-cleated boots endeavoring to
come in contact with the ball and
mayhap with the body of the downed
player; then a lucky-placed boot
would send the ball bounding from
the tangled mass of flying feet to
another player waiting, who ln turn
would attempt to dash away towards
his goal, only to be again attacked
and thrown.
Once tbe ball emerged from a
scramble, followed closely by Mortl
mer, who nursed It across the line for
a touchdown, scoring three points, a
kick for goal failed to convert.
The Cumberland Tigers were determined then to make more points, and
several times It seemed as though the
backs would surely go through for a
touchdown.
Once, "Tucker" got under way and
was not stopped until he had discarded a long string of would-be
tacklers wben he had all but the last
man to pass, who proved to be one of
surer aim than the rest.
Mortimer again at another time,
after having hurled himself past half
the navy, Incurred the attack of the
whole, all of whom were required to
get on his back before he was downed.
Other players In the back line were
so near through the line of defence at
different times tbat the Tigers were
almost sure of making more touchdowns, but the navy boys were too
much on tbe look-out.
The ball was in the Tigers' side ot
the field about 66 per cent of the
time, and from the players abilities
tbe navy boys should have had a
larger score; but when the ball came
too close to the Tigers' line they
showed the ferloslty and scrambled
the ball back to safety all but once;
about five minutes before time was up
the navy boys threw In from touch at
BASKETBALL.
The W. H. O. Club girls basket ball
team won another victory from the
teachers by a score of 11 to 2.
The defence of the W. H. 0. Is one
that a boy's team might be proud to
have, for lhe forwards simply can not
get by with the bull; they play them
close.
The girls' teams are all playing
fuster ball than they did ill the first
part of the season, and by the time
the second round starts there Bhould
be some real basket ball games to see;
even now, the game Is being played
better than ever before In Cumberland.
Field goals for the W. H. 0.: I. Henderson, 2; L. Henderson, 2; Foul
goals: I, Henderson, 1; L. Henderson,
2; total, 11.
Field goals for Teachers: Mclnnes,
1; total, 2.
FIRE HALL IMPROVEMENTS
To the Editor of The Islander:
Dear Sir,—Cumberland should have
a lire hall on the street level, large
enough for a fire truck, drying tower,
wash room with shower bath, and a
place ln the basement, or on ground
floor, for hose reels and other tools.
There should also be a decent place
for the firemen to meet and do Bremen's business. I would also suggest
that there be an annex or addition
containing one or two rooms on the
ground floor, with two rooms upstairs.   Another suggestion would be
The second game of the evening,
between the senior teams of the Owls
and Keystones, was one of the best
basket ball games ever witnessed In
the Band hall. Right from the Btart
of play the game was fast, and both
sides showed good combination work.
The pleasing feature of the game
was the sportsmanlike manner of all
the players; throughout the entire
game no part of the game was what
one could call rough play. It is to
be hoped that the balance of tbe basket ball games to be played this
season will be played as clean as this
one was played.
The scoring was so even that at no
time in the game could one say which
side would be the victor; causing
great excitement among the spectators; tbe best that has attended any
of the games so far this season.
Owls.—Forwards: Denholme, 6 field
goals, 2 foul goals; Farmer, 4 Held
goals; centre, Hunden, 4 field goals;
guard, Mitchell; guard, Foster, 1 foul
goal.   Total, 29.
Keystones. — Forwards: Jones, 3
field goals, 2 foul goals; Prior, 7 field
goals; centre, Tremlett, 1 field goal;
guard, King, 2 field goals; guard, Lee.
Total, 28.
The spectators were very much
pleased ln the way the hall was heated,
for they can now sit down and enjoy
the game without freezing, as they
had to last year; which for all concerned is certainly a great Improvement. The sides of the main floor
have been covered with new shlplap
up to a distance of six feet from the
floor all the way round so as to protect the players from any Berlous Injuries, from crashing into the studded
walls as they were last season; and
with the game Improving the way It
has been, the management are looking forward to a very successful
season.

their little hearts. How wo wish that
■ we could impress parents with the
fact that it Is a crime to teach children to be afraid of anything In this
big, beautiful world, that God has
has made. Caution and carelessncs;
may be imparted without filling the
child mind with horror.
Imagination is one of the most
powerful factors of the child mind.
It Is just as easy to appeal to thai
imagination with thoughts that develop courage and self-reliance as
those that create pictures of fear.
Don't tell the little ones that tho
goblins or the bogle man will get
them if they don't behave. Tell them
of the good fairies who aro always
ready to altend on them, such as
Truth, Cheerfulness, Kindness and
Obedience. Explain to them that when
they are untruthful, or cross, or un-
kiud, these good fairies go away from
them in sadness and will not return
to help them until they have repented
of their naughtiness.
The hearts and minds of the little
ones are open in their quest for light.
They want to believe and trust in
something. Why not teach them to
found that trust on something that is
beautiful and good ?
And, from now until Christmas you
can secure wonderful obedience by reminding that little fairy in your home
that Santa Claus remembers only the
good little girls and boys on Christmas Eve.

organized a "Swat the Pessimist"
Club.
That they proclaim tliat the pessimist and his pestiferous ways will
have no place In the new order of
things.
That he is simply advertising bis
own inability to do things.
That it Is necessary for all persons
not now looking hopefully and opti-
mistally Into the future, to readjust
themselves to tue bigger and better
things of life aad business.
That the pessimist is the man who
simply will not see the silvery lining
beneath the cloud; who advertises by
his looks and actions, his utter inability to meet his neighbor on a competitive basis.
That the optimist knows that unemployment is gradually diminishing,
tliat money Is getting cheaper, that the
fellow that hustles gets the business
and that the pessimist must no longer
be permitted to stand in the path of
progress  and  prosperity.
That the men back of Ibis movement
maintain Ihat an analysis will show
that there Is nothing so radically
wrong and flic country Is not going
to tiie bow-wows.
That If It looks that way to some
people, It is only a reflection of their
own Incapacity and Inability to adjust
themselves to the conditions of to-day.
That all should swat the pessimist!
Ostracize him! Make him lonesome!
Run tbe steam roller over him! Make
him so unpopular that he will either
become a business Christian or go

Various Formations.
In this article we shall discuss a
number of formations which can be
practiced.     There     arc     formations
covering all conditions that are likely
| to arise during a game and these by
no means exhaust all tbe possibilities
', of floor formations.   These can often
be built around an exceptionally
fast player or an exceptionally
tall,   active   man.     Here   the
coach must use his own judgment and act accordingly.    In
formations tor the tip-off there
,\'«. 1 are   practically   three   distinct
line-ups for the stnrt and these
are diagrammed here.
Number 1 shows the formation most
commonly known and used. These
rtlp-Ofl plays are effective providing the
forward receiving the ball at the start
: of tho play can pull his guard with
i him, thus* creating a vacant section in
which a team-mate can receive the
ball.
|    Should  the  guards  hold  their  de-
j tensive position and await the pass to
Uie incoming player, the play is
; is very likely lo bo broken up.
t The objection lo this line-up is
that Uie forward receiving, the
! tip-off   has   his   back   turned
' momentarily    to    his    forward
team-male   and   the   movement No. 2
; of the opposing guards.
j    In   tip-off   line-up   Number   2,   the
forwards   are   practically   facing  the
guards, bul when receiving the tip-off
! they are moving directly towards their
'opponents' goal and all passes.are in
; that direction.   The forwards in this
i line-up are more apt   to   pull   their
! guards out. leaving the territory near
the goal unguarded.
;    Should the guards not be drawn out
I in this formation but remain in their
j defensive positions, the forwards will
receive   tiie  tip-off  unmolested
and be in an excellent position
to pass or shoot.
This tip-off llnc-up Is also an
1 excellent one for defense when
the   opposing   centre   has    the
. jump    and    the advantage    ill No. 3
placing the ball.
Teams that perfect the tip-off call
' score   repeatedly   without   their   opponents as much as touching the ball.
Kegular    drill   work,    teaching    the
! player where lie should be, how quickly he should get there and to whom
' he should pass, will make this possible.    A man tliat does not possess
' plenty of nerve and fight is a poor
man to receive the tip-off.
Players when receiving the tip-oft
from the centre must leave their feet
and receive the ball In mid-air.
The ball must be secured and
passed   almost   simultaneously
while the player is in motion.
Any mishap, sucli as taking the
ball on  a  bound  or  dropping
No. 4 or fumbling, will   result   in   a
blocked    play.     Repitltion    of
plays is a poor policy, as it gives the
( opposing team an opportunity to figure
them out.   Plays should be mixed up
fo keep the opponents playing their
regular positions and  In  a  constant
! state of expectancy.

PROVINCE IN A GOOD
FINANCIAL CONDITION
Colonization Matters Discussed
in Legislature.—Alos the
Liquor Control Board.
VICTORIA, Nov. 20.—According to
statements contained ln the annual
Budget address of Hon. John Hart,
Minister of Finance, British Columbia
is In a better financial condition than
jny other province in Canada, and
this because of the caretul system of
borrowing which has been followed
during the past few years. With
Canadian money now at a premium,
the minister declared that the province would be saved seven or eight
million dollars before the maturity ot
loans already placed. This was the
most fitting reply to the Bowser predictions that the Provincial treasury
would be virtually bankrupt through
the borrowings of the Finance Minis
tor. said Hon. Mr. Hart.
A noticeable feature ot the Budget
address was (he announcement that
despite (he heavy calls upon lhe
Government there will be no Increase
lu taxation. Further, said the minis
tor, expenditures in practically every
department will be lower I'or the next
fiscal year than formerly, and last
year there was a reduction ol
$1,162,757 from the estimated total
Estimated revenue tor the coming
year is placed at $18,769,596. Last
year's estimated revenue was $16,81
391, but the actual revenue was
$1,871,795 higher.
"The credit of the province Is bet
ter than at any time since Confedera
tion," said Hon. Mr. Hart, "and this 1b
demonstrated by the ready sale of our
bonds, the prices we have received,
and the number of financial houses
bidding for the issues. The province
Is fortunate in owning great natural
resources within Its bounds, timber,
mines, agricultural lands and fisheries. The return ot normal conditions
and the influx of people we may expect
in tbe next few years, combined with
the sound, sane policy of development
of our natural resources, must assure
us a bright and prosperous future."

Colonization Matters.
While nothing definite has been announced by the Oliver Government regarding their proposed plans for
colonization, It is known that a definite, comprehensive policy Is being
worked out and will probably be announced in the Legislature within
two weeks. After two visits to tbe
Old Country, where he communicated
with the Imperial authorities. Hon. T.
D. Pattullo, Minister of Lands, has
proposals which he maintains will
mean the securing of thousands of
the best type of British settlers for
the vacant lands of this province.
Answering repeated criticisms from
Labor and Opposition members, regarding the provision of employment
for those out of work, rather than the
encouragement of new-comers, the
Government has pointed out that only
agriculturists are being sought.
There are several million acres of Ihe
best lands on the continent ln the
valleys of the Central Interior and
the fruit districts, and the encouragement of bona fide settlers to take up
land will form the chief plank In the
Government's scheme.
financial Dealings of Liquor Board.
Little satisfaction has been secured
by lhe Opposition members in probing lhe financial dealings of the
Liquor Control Board before the Public Accounts Committee. Despite the
constant criticism of the Government
liquor policy, no concrete suggestions
for un Improvement of the Act have
been submitted as yet, and Conservative members appear to be unable to
unearth anything but trivial mistakes
before the committee. Prices have
been reduced materially, and the
Government profit for tbe coming fiscal year Is expected to be $6011,000
smaller than last year. Figures tabled recently show that there are 63
liquor stores. For the year they
handled about $12,(100,000 worth of
business, with a profit of nearly
$4,000,000.
The Elght-hour Bill.
There Is little prospect ot the
Burde eight-hour Bill passing the
House this year, although there Is a
general feeling of support for the
principle. The stand Is taken though
that Industry would be sadly handicapped at the present time If B. C.
were asked to compete with other
provinces and states where longer
hours are the rule.
Never a Ford so good as this,
Never a Price so low as now.

Electric Ranges
Women's burdens for centuries past were heavy
because the human race did not know how to lighten
them. An enlightened age has gradually brought now
labor-saving devices to assist her—the greatest of
which is the Electic Range.
McCLARY'S ELECTRIC RANGE
has exclusive features that further reduce women's
burdens, saving time, labor and anxiety.
There is the Protected Element—the Element is
the burner, where the heat comes from. Like other
Electric Appliances, the heat is radiated from wire
coils, but the Protected Element snugly encloses these
coils in porcelain to save them from carelessness or accidental upsets. Therefore, McCLARY'S Protected
Element lasts longer, as acids, moisture and grease
cannot harm it. It heats quickly and holds the heat
long after the power is turned off.
The wonderful seamless, round-cornered Oven—
not a nick or crevice in its smooth, even, impenetrable,
glassy enamelled interior. lAs sanitary as any enameled
interior. As sanitary as any enameled utensil, rust resisting, cleanly. Racks and rack holders removable.
Elements swing on hinges, so that entire surface of
oven is clear for cleaning.
The Oven has a I84, in. insulation around the side
and a l'/a in. magnesia block insulation in the door—
this holds the heat in oven. Roasts and baked foods
retain their full flavor. The result is better baked
foods with minimum shrinkage.
Warming Oven with small element inside.
Signal lights to show whether current for Oven
is on or off.
Switches for elements plainly marked.
Extra plug for other Electric Appliances.

enthusiastic audience greeted the delegates from the above associations, In
the school house here on Friday last,
Nov. 17th.
Mr. W. S. Hunter occupied the
chair, and In a short but very thoughtful speech he outlined the purpose of
the meeting, to receive reports from
the different delegates who recently
visited Victoria, ln an endeavor to
better conditions existing at Merville.
Messrs. Cleland, Anderton and Plgott
stated they were very favorably received and were assured that every
possible means would be taken to ad-
Just the conditions now existing.
Hon. Mr. Barrow was favorably im
pressed with the resolutions presented
by the delegates, and promised at an
oarly date to personally visit the district, accompanied by some local experienced parties, to get Information
first-hand.
Mr. Jns. Reekie, Merville representative, also ■ spoke at considerable
length, urging his hearers to stay together and support tho community

ing several matters of Interest to the
people here. He made humorous references to Hon. Dr. Tolmle—"Old
Bill." and the Egg Inspection Act.
He paid u tribute to the leader of the
Opposition for his ability as a legls-
lator. He dealt with the Aslastlc Exclusion Bill, and stated tbat neither
Government did anything for many
years, and now, to catch votes, are
favoring this BUI. He gave several
Instances showing the absurdity of
naturalizing Japanese. He condemned
the Civil Service Act, and stated It
was a regular grafting machine. He
spoke on re-establlshment of returned
soldiers and also on the Pension BUI.
Both of these were not working satisfactorily. He advocated ft better plan
for appeals re pensions: he also
favored doing away with Military hospitals, which have been too expensive.
He was of the opinion that the Federal Act regarding land for soldiers
was no better than the Provincial Act.
In his opinion land should be sold to
the returned man at a price and upon
such terms as would enable them to
make a living. In conclusion, he Invited any of his constituents to ask
him any questions regarding Federal
matters.
The hour being late, the meeting adjourned after a very sensible and
thoughtful address.

WHEN B. C. AND
ISLAND UNITED
The   Amalgamation   of   Coast
Colonies Proclaimed 56
Years Ago.
Columns have been written about
the romantic early history of California, but comparatively little of the
equally romantic adventurour days
when British Columbia was being
transformed by red-blooded pioneers
trom a wilderness Inhabited only by
trappers and Indians, Into a civilized
state.
It was just flfty-BU years ago today tbat the union of Vancouver Island and the British Columbia mainland was proclaimed, and about live
years later the united colony became
a province of the Dominion ot Canada.
Embracing within Ub far-flung boundaries a great island and a wlde-
stretching mainland, bold sea coast,
towering mountain ranges, rugged and
picturesque river courses, rich fertile
valleys and frozen northland wastes,
British Columbia is an empire In Itself, rich ln the largess of soil and
sea, mine and forest.
First came uie brave navigators, the
Cooks and the Vancouver, closely followed by the Scotch explorers and
trappers and their aides, the hardy
French-Canadian voyageurs. Greatest
of these was Alexander Mackenzie,
who crossed the continent otter hardships, and carved his name on a rock
at Dean Inlet In 1793.
The Gold Rush.
Gold was the lure that attracted to
British Columbia its first considerable
white population, as It was In California. Prior to the gold rush of the
'50s British Columbia waB under the
government and control of the Hudson's Bay Company, and was divided
Into districts known as New Caledonia, New Georgia, New Norfolk and
New Cornwall. In 1856 the first
rumors of the discovery of gold In
New Caledonia reached San Francisco,
but tt was not until 1858 that the great
exodus from the Golden State to the
new Eldorado began in earnest.
Thousands of miners set out, by sea
and land, for the North, and before
the close ot the year 20,000 Callfor-
nlans were ln BrltlBh Columbia.
To provide for the government of
the country, the colony ot British
Columbia was formed, and James
Douglas, who had long ruledVVancou-
ver Island, wns sworn ln as governor.
The miners from California were loud
In their protests against the Hudson's
Bay Company, which held a monopoly,
nnd forbade the importation of goods
i through other than the company's
j agencies. An appeal was made to the
Washington government, which In
> turn took up the matter with London.
The British Government sustained the
governor In the steps he had taken,

Joined Dominion.
Soon after the union of Vancouver
Island and the mainland in lsflil, u
movement was set on foot to bring
about the union of the colony with
Canada, while another Influential
party of American settlers openly agitated annexation to the United States.
Dr. Helmcken was the leader ot the
annexationists, and he succeeded In
arousing a strong pro-American senti-
i nieiit, but the majority of the citizens
i favored   inclusion   In   the   Canadian
! Dominion,
In 1S71 Confederation became an
accomplished tact, British Columbia
having   enacted   a   pledge   from   the
I Dominion Government to build a
transcontinental   railway.    The   long
J delay In the fulfillment of this pledge
exasperated the British Columbians,
and tiie tlircal of withdrawal from the
Dominion was often made, while the
annexation movement was revived.
Al length. In lSSu, tbe railroad was
completed, and the union with Canada
become a reality.
