were absent and very little business CLOSE RACE IN
was transacted. There was only one
communication, this being from the
city clerk of Nanaimo who wrote
asking the Cumberland Council to
endorse two resolutions which the
N'anaimo Council had forwarded to
Premier Bennett. After reviewing
the resolutions, which are hereby
published, the City fathers unanimously endorsed them:
"WHEREAS the announcement
has appeared in the public press that
the Canadian National Railway company has decided to use fuel oil for
the hotel now being erected by it in
in the City of Vancouver.
"And whereas it has been recognized by the Provincial and Dominion Governments thnt the Coal Industry isin a seriously depressed condition brought about principally by
the importation of fuel oil and efforts
are being exerted to procure a remedy for this condition.
"And whereas the decision of the
Canadian National Railway company,
, a Government controlled institution,
will actually aid in building up the
competition of imported fuel oil.
"And whereas the Dominion Government has instituted a scheme of
unemployment relief to meet unemployment conditions in the country
and whereas the action of the C.N.R.
will tend to aggravate unemployment
conditions by its example as a public
institution.
"Therefore be it resolved that this
Council deeply deplores the action of
the Canadian National Railway company in deciding to use fuel oil for
heating purposes in its new hotel now
being erected in the City of Vancouver more especially in view of the
detrimental effect of such action by
Government controlled institutions
and its influence upon other public
and private institutions.
"Whereas the Dominion Government has from time to time given assurance that it will give protection
to Canadian Industries where necessary to protect such industries from
foreign competition.
"And whereas action following out
this policy has been taken up by the
Dominion Government in a number
of instances.
"And whereas the coal industry of
the Province has been seriously affected by the .importation of fuel oil
and is most seriously threatened unless immediate action is taken to curtail the importation of this fuel.
"Therefore be it resolved that Dominion Government he urged to immediately place a tax upon fuel imported into this province sufficient
to at least place such oi! upon an
even competitive basis with coal mined within the province."
Bills and accounts to the amount
of $683.19 were referred to the finance committee for payment. In
the reports of committees Alderman
Henderson for the board of works
reported much progress on all works
undertaken, especially so was this the
case in the laynig of the new sewer.
Up to date, the sum of $997.26 had
been expended on this work . Other
departmental reports were noted as
satisfactory. A Idcrman Leddngham
on behalf of the fire wardens introduced a motion to the effect that all
bills and accounts against the fire department must be vouched for either
by the fire chief .assistant fire chief,
or fire commissioners.
The secretary of the Christmas
Cheer Fund waited on the Council
with a request for financial assistance for the fund. After hearing the
secretary and what steps had been
taken up to the present time, the
council donated the sum of $50.
Comox   Suffer  First  Defeat   of   the  j
Season '!
„ 11
The race for the top position in j j
the Cumberland and district cribbage ,
league is becoming a very interesting
one. Comox and Union Bay are tied
once more at the head of the table
whilst the Conservatives and Veterans are gradually creeping up on
the leaders, being only three points
behind with the league fixtures just,
ubout half completed. All teams were i
in action this week and some close
Raines resulted. Comox were defeat-1
ed by the Courtenay Elks by a score j
of 19-17. The Veterans once more
easily defeated the Oddfellows, the!
score being 22-14. The Athletics,
heat the Eagles 20-16 but in the'
other game played, Conservatives vs. i
Union Bay, another draw resulted,!
the scores being 18-18. These teams:
met at the Bay last week when a
draw was the result, The shipping'
boys never got over thc losing ofl
thai one point and came up to Cum-1
berland Wednesday fully determin-,
ed to bag both points. The Conserv- j
atives, however, lived up to their rep- f
utation and honors were even at thej
close. The defeat of Comox came
as a big surprise but it makes the j
race for the top berth all the more!
interesting. The Veterans and the
Conservatives are still to be reckon-;
ed with. A halt will be called until
January the 7th, owing to Christmas
and New Year holidays. On that
date, however, all teams will be in
action again.

REDUCTION IN
LIGHT RATES
New Power U Now Operating; John
Shortt   Superintendent
On Tuesday afternoon Penticton's
new power line went into operation.
This event  means another reduction in electric rates, the second during 19.10.
The cm at the beginning of the
presi nt year applied to users of light
only as ,it was impossible to segregate light from power.
It was then decided to make alterations to the system in order to be
able to sell current on an extended
step of the rate structure to power
users nt the low figure of 2*^ cents
per K.W.H,
As all panels on the substation
switchboard were loaded, it was necessary to transfer the lighting load
from one of the less heavily burdened panels; to unother, thus leaving
a .-(.are panel, circuit breaker and
metering equipment to handle a circuit exclusively for polyphase power.
The next problem was to find space
for the extra circuit wires on the
pole lines.
This prohlem was solved by the
i use of "H" frame construction em-
1 ploying cross-arms 20 feet long.
hi this manner all high-tension
j circuits were plat jf ce extreme
j tops i'f the struct (ire. abolishing
I many hazards Ihat had previously
j existed.
Ertrly in the procedure it became
apparent that it would be impossible
| to cut off the circuit for any length
of time on account of the great in-
convenience to industrials during the
day time.
With no small hazard, the work
was completed without shutdown for

Two fast games of baskteball were
witnessed at the Bund hall on Friday
night when a ladies' team and a
men's team came over from Port Al*
bernl for games with the local Eagles.
Tin* ladies' game was played flrat and
resulted in a win for the home team
by- nine points to nothing. The
Eagles had a slight advantage all the
way through, leading at half time,
15-0. A feature of the game was the
close and fine cheeking of the guards.
The forwards were fast with the result that the best game of the season
resulted. For Cumberland E. Bow-
ciing at guard und E. Picketti and
M. Gozzano, forwards were about tho
pick whilst the visitors were best represented by B. Robinson, F. Strain
and B. Griffiths at centre, whilst Miss
Larson as guard played a stellar
game. Miss Criffiths used considerable weight at times and drew three
personals. At the start of the second hail' Alberni sent in two subs
but did not manage to best the home-
Bters, the final count being 9-0.
The teams were: Alberni: B. Robinson. F. Strain, B. Griffiths, M. Larsen, G. Waterstreet, J. Frost.
Eagles: E. Picketti (2), J. Bono
(2), M. Cozzano (2), B. Stant (3),
E. Conrod (0), E. Bowering (0), V.
Picketti  (0).
The senior men's game started Immediately after the finish of the ladies' game nnd it was a bang-up affair from start to finish, with the
Eagles running out winners by a
score of 36-26. The locals played a
bouncing pass game, the visitors relying on the straight pass style of
play-
There was a good crowd of spectators present and generous applause
greeted the various exciting plays,
the visitors coming in for a great
share of the f*ir.-' appreciation which
made the Alberni players feel qnlte
at home. At half time the score
stood 2-1-22 in favor of the Eagles
and us the second period got under
way it looked like anybody's game
with the visitors trying desperately
to gain the lead. They missed sev-
etal chances close to the hoop, whilst
the locals were making everything
count and having a slight edge on
the run of play. Hill and Conrod
both turned in a good game whilst
Frelone at guard was about the best
man on the floor . The game was
played at a fast clip with personals
being banded out; McFarlane and
Frelone drew one each and Watson
of Alberni, the roughest man on the
floor got three, and Mc Gargle two.
Bissel and McDonald were top scorers for the visitors and Conrod and
.lock Hill for the homesters.

A CHRISTMAS MESSAGE
CHRISTIAN'S throughout the World are preparing to celebrate the joyous festival of
Christmas. On Christmas morning they will
gather in their respective Churches to hear the
familiar story and join in the familiar hymns.
Through all the manifold forms of worship runs
the common theme of praise and thanksgiving for
the glorious blessings of the Incarnation
ff you, reader, are not a member of any church,
the Incarnation may mean little or nothing to you;
you are unmoved by the Christian festival as celebrated by the Church, and yet you join with your
fellow-Christians—nominal or professing—in observing Christmas as a clay of glad rejoicing, of
kindliness and brotherhood, and of generosity and
sympathy. Christmas Day being both a sacred
and a secular festival il is lhe great unifying day
in the year when wc arc all one family; when distinctions and differences of belief or unbelief, of
class aud race of wealth and poverty are forgotten in the prevailing spirit of love and tenderness.
Christmas softens all hearts; if there is one day
in the year more than another in which the world
is a happier and a holier place, it is that day on
which we celebrate the festival of the Nativity.
For the spirit of human-kindness is then abroad;
you see it on the streets; in thc happy faces of
fathers and mothers staggering along with heavy
Christmas parcels; in the expectant faces of the
children. Hut the most beautiful thing of all to
remember is that this spirit is made manifest in
countless acts of human charity, in an increased
pity for the distressed and in a deepened sympathy for the lonely and unfortunate.
Perhaps the past year has been unfortunate for
you—you who have had ill-health, poverty, financial worries or domestic trouble. It may seem to
you that everything is going wrong, and that you
have (speaking colloquially) been given a raw
deal. Dont' worry, have hope; hold on a little longer; you are not being forgotten in the ditch alongside life's highway, you are just out of step in
the route march. Just get right with yourself.
Hang out your spiritual stocking—that is open
your heart and soul to receive the God of Love
who WANTS to come in. and WANTS to help
you, and is ready to lead you in the right paths
and bless you with richness and every good thing.
And if you take a few minutes quietly and calmly
to reflect on this, and to hold yourself receptive to
the impartations of the Spirit, God will come to
you just as the human father plays Santa Claus to
his sleeping children. You will be filled with the
imperishable riches of divine love and peace, and
it will lie for yon a real Christmas.
WATCH THOSE CHRISTMAS TREES
PROTECT your children when the Christmas
tree is lighted in your home. Fire is one of
mankind's greatest boons, but when man
loses control of it .fire is a merciless destroyer.
Tinsel, flmsy decorations, artificial snow and the
lighted candles are a dangerous combination. History usually repeats itself, but if everyone will
take proper precautions against Christmas tree
tires, there is no reason why it should this year.
Make sure your tree brings joy and beauty to
your homo, and not (lames and sorrow.
THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER
IX SPITE of the fact that thc metropolitan press now
reaches into neatly every town and village in the
country, the local newspaper is each year getting on
a firmer foundation and becoming more and more useful
to its home community.
It may tic said that the day of the metropolitan newspaper is at hand. This is true, hut it is equally as true
that the day of thc local newspaper is here too.
.The Metropolitan daily with its world-wide news, its
ci.mie sheets and its magazine supplements, while of
course, essential in our modern civilization, cannot take
the place of the home newspaper. The very fact that
the Intr daily must cover a broad field forbids its becoming local in any sense, and it is in the local field where
the home new-paper dominates and where it finds its
line usefulness.
For, after all. it is the home news which is most important to most of us. We have the Greatest interest
in the community ill which we live, and .in the people
who are our neighbors nnd friends. And it is th,* total
teWKpitpot' which rei'ords the hnppenintfs of the folks at
home, and in addition fosters the pride and progressive
spirit of the community, —Saanich Review-.

A LITTLE JOB
HAVE you a little job in your home? Why not.
give it away to someone who needs it?
Nearly all of us have wood to split and pile,
fences to mend, an ash pile to move, perhaps some
digging in the garden to do. seeing that there is
no frost in the soil as yet.
What about the possibility of helping out with
unemployment and at the same time accomplish-1
ing the little touch of work needed about the home j
or the office?
There are quite a number of men in Cumberland today, and women too for that matter, who
are most anxious for any kind of work. Even if
the employment is only for a short time il would
be gratefully received.
Act now. have your wood cut, or your place
cleaned up.

It is a test of self restraint to refrain from
taking an advance peep at a parcel marked "Not
to be opened before Christmas."
Sir Robert Borden announces that should he be
offered the appointment of Governor-General of
Canada he "would without hesitation decline it."
There does not appear to be any urgent demand
for a change in the long-established custom.

CHRISTMAS IN OTHER
LANDS
In England, Christmas used to be
celebrated liy great feasts Owners
nf estates entertained in addition to
their own families all tbe people living on their land. This meant thnt
the cooks were busy for days preceding the holiday preparing cakes, puddings and other choice eatables. Tho
pnntries were tilled with vegetables
nf all sorts and witli huge roasts.
This part of the Hnglish Christmas
is not observed at the present time.
Ai midnight bells ring throughout
the land to announce the arrival of
Christmas. Very early in the morning the children, many of whom are
very poor, go about the streets singing Christmas carols. In the morning
children help to bring in the great
Vide log. This is usually cut the year
before so that it may become thoroughly dry before it is used. It is
placed in the fireplace and lighted
with a piece of the log burned the
previous year, saved for this purpose.
Children sing and dance as the log
burns. The houses and churches are
prettily decorated with holly and ivy.
Most families have Christmas trees,
which the children helievp are gifts
of St. Nicholas.
In Sweden preparations for Christmas begin two or three weeks before
Christmas. Houses are thoroughly
cleaned, metal utensils arc polished,
until everything seems spotless. New
dresses nnd suits are made for the
children. Then the conking begins.
All kinds of fancy cakes and cookies
are made. Thc cookies are cut to
represent different animals and are
then frosted and covered with sugar
Band. Biscuits nre the favorite bread
fur this season, and piles nf them and
coffee enke are baked and put away
for the holiday feast. Tbe children
who live in the country or small villages go tn the woods and select their
own Christmas trees. If the brother
i-- old enough to cut it he does so. If
not, ihe father cut it. The children
drag it homo and trim it themselves.
They have no Santa Claus, although
occasionally to amuse the younger
ones, presents are thrown in at the
window and no one sees where they
fill

come from. Early Christinas morn-
\ ing lighted candles art put in the
! windows to light people on their way
j to church. The Christmas service be-;
gins at live o'clock and everyone
I goes.
In Norway the preparations for
; Chris^r1 ■ are somewhat similar to
' thoseW Sweden. The children pre-.
, pare their own Christmas trees, •
, which are lighted at five o'clock!
; Christmas Eve. Upon Christinas Day ,
1 all animals are given extra food. A
sheaf of wheat saved from the harvest is fastened to a pole erected,
1 near tbe house for a feast fur the i
■ birds.
In Germany children have Christ-'
■mas trees.    The housewives prepare:
j the cakes and cookies in tht shape of!
animals and these are greatly enjoyed,    .lust before Christmas someone
strangely attired calls at each house j
aud   enquires   if   the   children   have;
been good.    He carries a large bag j,
and a hunch of switches.    If the chil-M
dren   have   been  good  he  opens  the!
bag and throws nuts about. If a child |
has not been good a switch is left tol ■
be   used in   punishintr  him.     This  is. :
"Ruprecht".    Many children-think it | ;
is all  he does and  that  the  Christ;;
child himself brings their presents,   j !
In Holland the little children think' !
that St. Nicholas drives a white horse) ;
So they clean their wooden shoes, fill
them with oats and hay for the white
horse, and in the morning wake to
find their shoes filled with candy and
toys.
Christmas in Belgium is much like,
that in Holland, except that the chil- j
dren  put carrots in their shoes for;
the good saint's horse.    If the horse
smells the carrots he will enter the:
house, and St. Nicholas will romem-
bei* all  who are good to his horse.   !
In  Denmark  the children   believe!
that   a  goorl   brownie,   Nisson,  who
looks like a little old man wilh a long
grey   board   and   who   lives   under- ,
ground, comes to bring them gifts. I
Christmas  spent  in  family reunion.
Christmas   In   Russia   Is  spent   in I
feasting.    Houses and churches are!
beautifully   decorated   with   greens,
and most families have a Christmas
tree,     Christmas   Eve   the   children 1
-ing and dance.
The Freneh Snntn Claus Is called
Pore Noel, which means Father;
Christinas. He visits each home and
rewards good children. Ruprecht,,
who carries switches for bad children
comes with Noe], Only children re-
colve presents. They place their
shoes .in one corner uf the room, and}
in them Noel leaves their gifts.
In  Italy the children's Christmas
friend is what we know as Mother
Goose,    They  call  her  Befana  and
watch   for   her  appearance   on   the
broom-stick she rides.    Italian  people usually have fireplaces instead of
stoves.   They have a large log called
the Christmas log, which they plnce
on the lire Christinas Day.   The boys
nnd girls recite poems and ning songs
[ Then   t hey   go   into   another   room
where a large urn or vase stands in
the centre of a table filled with gifts.
i     The Swiss chidren place onp shoe
■ outside the door for two Saturdays
before Christmas.   If they have bcen
j good they will find candy and nuts in
their shoes. Christmas Eve they go
to find a loaded Christmas tree.
In Spain and Portugal Christmas
is celebrated by family reunions and
elaborate religious ceremonies. Three
Kings (the Three Wise Men) perform the dutries of Santa Claus.
In Austria lighted candles are
placed in the windows Christmas Eve
so that the Christ Child in passing
will not stumble. Three special candles are made for the occasion and a
Christmas log is cut for the fireplace.

A CHRISTMAS LEGEND     ;
There are numerous legends con-;
cerning thc mistletoe, that mystic
plant that is so often used as decoration at the Christmas season. Among
others, there is a Norse lengend
ahout the plant as follows:
There was once a son of the goddess Freyja, by the name Baldur, the
(Mind, who was found by his mother
and the gods Odin and Thor, to be
lacking in immortality. Because they
feared he might meet with death,
they decided to gain the consent of
all creatud things never to harm him.
We commemorate Kreyjn in the
word Friday and the great god of
war,  Thor,  in  the  word Thursday.
CUMBERLAND ISLANDER, CUMBERLAND, B. C.
PAGE FlVfa:
oi
These gained the consent of the
earth, fire, water nnd iron, birds and
beasts, poisonous plants and all powers of nature, to their plan. Loki
was the evil spirit, who hated Baldur, and one day witnessed the test
for the protection of Freyja's son.
Stones, darts, swords, battleaxes and
even Thor's hamer were thrown at
him, but protected by the spell nothing harmed him.
Then Loki changed his form into
that of a beautiful woman and went
to the home of Freyja to tell her
that her son was being nttacked.
Freyja told how alt things had promised never to harm her son, all but
one little shrub growing on an oak
east of Wal-halla,  called mistletoe. I
But it was too feeble to be required
to make any promise. Loki then
hastened to the place, cut the small
plant and brought it back. He placed
a twig in the hands of the blind god,
Nodur, guiding his arm he threw it
at Baldur. The little twig was enchanted, and when it pierced Boldur,
he fell dead.
The mistletoe is a parasite; something that feeds upon another plant,
having no way of getting food for
itself. It has always been much in
demand, for many years during thc
holidays. The practice of hanging a
piece over the door has come down
to us from early times when it was
connected with religious ceremonies.

Friendly Game
Is Fast Ore
Cumberland, Dec. 15.—The newl>
formed Courtinay football team played up to advance notices when they
held the fast-stepping local Eagles'
eleven to a 2-2 draw on the Recreation
grounds on Sunday afternoon.
A falr-sizi-d crowd braved the cok
weather to attend and were rewardec1
in seeing the best game played local!;
this season. Many had expected t> sei
Courtenay oppose the Nanaimo Lumber Co. eloven, one of tlie best Junior
teams of the Island, but this game was
cancelled when manager Dargte of
Courtenay received a telegram on
Thursday to the effect that owing to
two all-star teams playing in the Hub
city on that date and many of these
players taking part, they would be unable to come to Cumberland as arranged. The game, however, proved a
hard one for both teams nnd an exciting one for the fans.
Referee Thoburn sent the teams
away on time, Courtenay immediately
making tracks for Walker, the Eagles'
goalie, and only poor shooting spoiled
their efforts and play of a see-saw nature took place, the Eagles seeming
slow to realize that they had a hard
game on their hands, the latter gradually forced two corners in quick succession without result. The visitors, ever
on their toes worked the ball down the
left wing, where Larson, tho left half
who proved a thorn to the Eagles all
afternoon, sent over a perfect cross
which the centre headed into the corner of thc goal, giving Walker no chance
to save. This served to make the pace
of the players hotter and caused the
fans to forget the cold weather entirely. After 15 minutes Hunter, for
the Eagles, took a long looping shot
which the goal-keeper misjudged, tying
the score.
The next ten minutes found both
goalies pulling oil good plays, Grier
showing up very much, probably on
account of having more to do than
Walker but finally the left wins In another cross which Robinson snapped
up and banged Into he low corner of
the net for Courtenay's second count.
half time finding the .score 2-1 and
both teams welcoming a rest.
The Eagles were quick to start in the
second half and pressed more than tne
Visitors never allowing the defence to
settle although all put up u stubborn
fight to hold their advantage but the
Eagles were out for goals, Huuter again
tipping on? past Drier from a scrimmage in front of the goal. Both teams
went at it hammer and tongs until the
end of the game, Hunter and Gibson
trying for the winning Koal while Robinson, Partridge and Auchinvole were
proving sharp shooters for Conrod,
Bickle and Brown to watch. The referees whistle found the teams on 2-2
basis.
For the visitors Grier, in goal, Larson
at left half and Searle at centre half
were tlie outstanding players while
none were poor. Por the Eagles it
would be hard to single out any particular player, the backs kicking very
consistently and Weir Conrod and
Hunter feeding their forwards nicely.
Howay and Bartholdi were their usual
wives with plenty of speed and dangerous shots ably assisted by Gibson.
The Courtenay team was a much improved eleven and much credit is due
the old reliable P. Dargie and his aid.'-
de-camp D. Damonte who have given
their team every attention.

THE GAME OF BADMINTON
The game of badminton is fast becoming one of the world's finest and
fastest indoor games and before
many years elapse it is believed by
many that this game will be included
on the programme of the Olympic.
****************************************************************** ***********^
m^s^m^m^m^M^tm
Canada's Best
Some authorities claim that Badminton dates back to I87.'l and was
played on grounds of the Duke of
Beaufort. Some claim the game first
originated in India, whi< h is very
probably the case, and was a most
popular game with the British army
and their families stationed there.
Of course in such early days the
game was not known as badminton
but as battledore and shuttle cock.
The game of badminton derived its
name from a small village in the
Cotswold Hills in the county of Gloucestershire, in England. It contains
an estate named "Badminton House"
that stands on about ten acres of
ground, in which Lloyd George legislation has probably caused considerable shrinkage by this time. The
manor was supposed to have been
acquired in 1608 from a certain Nicholas Boteler, whose family had lived
there for several generations, by
Thomas Viscount Somerset, who died
in 1651. It was given by his daughter and heiress, Elizabeth, to Henry
Somerset, the third Marquis of Worcester and the first Duke of Beaufort.
The game was very little known in
Canada prior to 11)25. Cumberland,
however, was one of the very few
places where the game was played.
If memory serves the writer correctly
it was in 1921 that the game was introduced here. The Men's club of
Holy Trinity Anglican Church being
responsible for introducing the "sis
sy" game as Jack Williams termed it
before he tried it out. The popular
Alderman gets as much enjoyment
out of the gnme now as any other
he ever tackled. At this time the
game was introduced nt the Anglican
Hall it was very difficult to get even
four men to turn out to make a men's
double up. Many, many times, the
writer, along with the Rev. W. Lever,
sedge, T. H. Mumford and John Walton has played men's doubles from
7 p.m .to 11 p.m. with never a solitary person witnessing the games. It
is different now, and owing to the
crowded membership at all the clubs
in Cumberland it as almost impossible to get a men's double. The
game has gone ahead by leaps and
bounds, but owing to the difficulty
in obtaining a suitable hall in the city
the brand of play has undoubtedly
suffered. We have here the making
of some real first-class players and
if a suitable hall could be obtained,
our budding champions would go
ahend much quicker.
As an indication of how the game
hns swept the country, Toronto, ten
years ago had 150 members on its
roster; today there are 10,000 connected with the various clubs in thnt
city and the same advance is claimed
for the ctiy of Vancouver. Ten years
ago the game was played by guess,
but today, the larger clubs have professionals the same as golf clubs.
A bigger and better hall for Cumberland is thc need.
