C. J. Taylor. No. 4 mine surface
team of the Comox mines were also
present composed of A. J. Taylor,
(Capt.), Charles Nash, H, Boffey, J.
Quinn and Archie Lockhart, the latter taking the place of J. G. Lockhart,
who was unable to be present on account of an Illness that has caused
him to be confined to his home for
Borne weeks past.
On the platform wore His Honor
the Lieutenant-Governor of British
Columbia, Hon. William Sloan, Minister of Mines for British Columbia,
James M. Savage, General Manager,
Thomas Graham, General Superintendent, Charles Graham District Superintendent of tlle Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Ltd., B, H. S. Winn,
Cbjalrman of the Compensation Board,
Re:-. Thomas Menzles, M.P.P. lor the
Coniox electoral district, Mr. Muskett,
Mr. Thorpe of Nanaimo, and Frank
Bond, President ^)f the Cumberland
Centre of the sY John Ambulance
Association, who occupied the chair.
The proceedings commenced by all
present standing and singing "God
Save the King" with Mrs. R. E. Frost
at tiie piano and Mr. W. A. Owen
violin, which was loud and impressive.' \
The chairman, in his opening remarks in addressing the audience,
said, "We are here for the purpose
of making the presentation of the
Coderre Cup and present the medals
to the winning teams. To render first
aid to the injured in a large industrial centre was one of the greatest
works known to man." The winning
of the cup and medals was a great
honor that every citizen in Cumberland and vicinity appreciated, aud expressed his sorrow that J. G. Lockhart, a member of No. 4 surface team,
was unable to attend owing to a serious illness. He, the chairman, further
; stated tliat the success ot tiie team
was due to tlio generosity, encouragement and kindness of the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., who were
always ready to assist to their utmost
in lirst aid and mine rescue work,
nnd paid a magnificent tribute to
Thomas Graham, the General Super-
1 intendent, and then called upon Mr.
Curr, of Union Bay, for a song, which
received loud appluuse and responded to an encore. Watkin Williams,
of Bevan, was next with a song accompanied by W.C. Edwards. Violin
solo, W. A. Owen, accompanied by
.Mrs. R. E. Frost.
A song was very effectively rendered by Miss Gilchrist, who responded
to nil encore. The chairman said,
"We have now arrived at the most important event ot the evening, the
presentation of the Coderre Cup and
medals representing the Dominion
Ills Honor the Lieutenant-Governor
on rising, addressed the chair and
audience, and In nn able address said
In.part tliat,It gave him great pleasure to be present on such an occasion, congratulating No. 4 mine surface team on their success, He spoke
of the value of Ilrst aid to the injured
in large industrial centres, where
there was more or less dangerous
work to contend with. His Honor Bald
it required active and intelligent men
trained in first aid work, with presence of mind ready for any emergency. His Honor also stated that
with the assistance of the Govern-
> meat, tho operating companies and
|) the energetic efforts of the first aid
worker, they would, beyond a doubt,
win further honors. He then proceeded to give the history of the
Coderre Cup, which was presented to
the St. John Ambulance Association
of Canada by the Honorable Louis
Coderre, who was Minister of Mines
In the Borden Government. The cup
Is subject to annual competition in
first aid work is open to teams in
Cannda. Tlio competition was dormant during the years of the war,
and has only been competed for by
British Columbia teams during the
past two years.   In l'J20 the Barton
team of Nanaimo won the Coderre
Cumberland second in the competition.
In 1921, or last year's competition,
the order of merit ln the Coderre Cup
was reversed, No. 4 surface team of
Cumberland winning first place with
Barton's team of Nanaimo second.
To get first and second place ln this
competition speaks volumes for the
Ilrst aid movement ln British Columbia, and particularly on Vancouver
Island. His Honor then presented
the cup to the captain of the No. 4
lurfaco team and presented each
member of the team with a medal,
which go with the cup. A, J. Taylor,
captain of the team, upon receiving
the cup thanked His Honor tho Lieutenant-Governor for his kindness ln
being present and making the presentation, and said their success waB
due to the assistance that tbey received from the Canadian Collieries
I Dunsmuir) Ltd., whose help was
always available. The chairman then
called upon the Hon. William Sloan,
Minister of Mines for the Province of
British Columbia, who, ln an eloquent
address pointed out the work that
his department had done ln assisting
first aid work throughout the province. Last year the record in underground accidents in British Columbia was such as any Government
would be proud of. It was 1.4 per
1,000 and that was a better record
than any other part of the continent
of North America. He also dealt with
the fatalities of the Ferule mines and
the Protection Island shaft disaster.
He said tiie life ot winding ropes under B.C. regulations had been cut
down to two years, which was even
better than Great Britain where the
life of a rope was two and a half
years. Throughout the mines of British Columbia naked lights were discarded and said this waB favored
when Thomas Graham and Robert
Wilkinson were chief inspectors, It
w\js also favored by James McGregor,
the present chief.
Speaking of the Idle time ln the
coal mines of Vancouver Island, this
was due to the tremendous Influx of
fuel oil. He had no hesitation ln advocating an extra import duty on
fuel oil, that coal may be placed on
a competitive basis. He could not understand why transportation companies should send their good money
out of the country supporting foreign
industries with B.C. coal mines idle.
It was urgent and Imperative that
an extra import duty be placed on
fuel oil. Barton's team and No. 4
surface team then lined up on the
platform and the Hon. W. Sloan, Minister of Mines, said it gave him much
pleasure on behalf ef the Province of
British Columbia and the Department
of Mines in presenting each member
of the two teams with the Government medals. Captain Taylor thanked
Mr. Sloan for his kindness in being
present and making the presentations.
Thomas Graham, General Superintendent of the Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Ltd., was the next speaker, and said there was very little for
him to say after hearing the previous
speakers, congratulated the No. 4
surface team on their success and
then went into the history of first aid
work In the coal mining centre of the
Province, going back forty years and
then twenty yearB when the Miners'
Safety Association of Vancouver
[Bland was organized. Mr. Graham
outlined the work of No. 4 surface
team and their progress, giving great
credit to the men and their Instructors, Dr. G. K. MacNaughton, Dr. E.
it. Hicks, Mr. Frank Bond, President
of Cumberland, and the members ot
St John Ambulance Association, also

Super - Western
C'mon, see the West, young man
It certainly is Iu "Man to Man," tlio
UnlverBal-Jewel production at the
ilo-llo theatre on Friday and Satur
day. The broad sweeps of unfenced
grazing kingdoms of Arizona and
California furnished the background
against which Hurry Carey and n
strong cast of players were photographed in the action of a virile storv.
A stampede of live thousand head
of cattle gives enough thrill to the
spectator lo prove that Stuart I'ntlon,
the director, hasn't lost his pep since
lie directed "Conflict" Prlseilla Dean's
amazing Universal-Jewel' starring
vehicle, whicli provided theatre-goers
with a whole flock of tin-ills.
Switching from the dives <>r Tlvu-
Tivn in tlle South Seas to the hoi
grazing lauds of Arizona, the story ol'
"Man to Man," at thn llo-Ilo theatre,
has wide range of appeal.
It Is a Universal-Jewel feature starring Harry Carey, the actor who is
"human" in Western roles.
Opposite him Lillian Rich altrac-
tively animates a figure In Jackson
Gregory's story, a woman as charming as Miss Rich herself. Really wonderful Is this heroine, human enough
not to be capable of hearing a hundred lies about the hero without believing sonic of tliem, and yet sweet
to him because she's in love with him
and can't help it-Athe state iu which
a woman Is most beautiful and lovable.
Harold Goodwin plays a juvenile
role, while Alfred Allen ami Charles
LeMoyne have their hands in dirty
work from the first flash.
Willis Robards, who died shortly
after "Man to Man" was completed,
leaves a masterly characterization in
his final role—that of a blind ranch
The Hurricane Hutch serial and

also been taken.
Mr. Thompson immediately telephoned the chief of police, Mr. Merry,
who was promptly on the spot, followed immediately by Provincial
Constable Dunbar. Although the
night watchman noticed nothing unusual, the robbery appears lo have

Locals'Lose to Nanaimo
In Connaught Cup Game
Only Goal Scored Was From,a Penalty Kick   Given   Against
Campbell—Brewster Plays Splendid Game
The lirst round of the Connauglit
CuPi emblematic of the soccer champion of tin' Dominion, resulted hi the
local team being knocked out in the
.;iitial round by the Nanaimo eleven.
The Cumberland team will now have
■> he content for this season ut any
ate, with being returned winners of
ihe-Vancouver Island League aud the
Upper Island League.
The game on Saturday last in the
pup series proved to be a humdinger,
tnd despite contrary reports appearing In the Nanaimo papers, wo still
naintain tbat the locals had a slight
idge on their opponents.
Cumberland won the toss and elect*
Ing to play facing the sun, but with a
slight breeze in their favor, went off
with great dasli and for the first ten
minutes the visitors had a hot time
of it. Nanaimo eventually settled
dowu, tho game becoming exceedingly
"ast. Some hard knocks were given
and taken, Appleby and Zaeearejli
appearing fo take a delight in using
their weight on one another, with the
result that both bad to be attended to
by the respective trainers, Cumberland's left wing wero working well
aud caused tho Nanaimo defence a
great deal of worry, Appleby on two
occasions coining within an ace of
icorlng, As half time drew near both
teams made strenuous efforts to open
the scoring. .Milligan had extremely
hard lines, lie tricked Stewart and
had hard luck' in having his shot
stopped by Hughes, the Inside right
being knocked out in his efforts to
score and the trainer's services were
again called upon. Half-time arrived
with Cumberland pressing.
During the interval the Cumberland City Band played suitable selections, which were much appreciated
by the large crowd present.
On resuming play in the second, it
was uasy to soo that both teams
meant business,""as" the pace Bet was
just as fast as the irwt half. The
Nanaimo forwards In a nice combined
move got. (dose to tho home goal.
Fowler being nicely placed and receiving the ball from Stobbart, tho
centre forward made tracks for Bill
Walker. Jock Campbell, evidently
thinking a certain goal was going to
result, made no bones about it and
brought Fowler down iu the penalty
area. The referee as promptly blew
his whistle and pointed for a penalty
kick, Stobbart converting with a fast
rising shot giving Walker no chance
to save. There was absolutely no
protest against the decision of Referee Rogers in giving n penalty.
From where we stood on the side
linos it did not appear us though
Campbell had ntty cause to force tho
centre forward as he would not have
scored in a thousand years for Ire
had practically lost contro 1 of the
ball. In all fairness to Campbell, he
thought there was a great likelihood
of his opponent scoring aud he did
what any other man would have done,
brought his man down. There may
be some who will argue otherwise,
hut even in first-class league football
In the old land, if there is a danger
of a man scoring there Is no hesitation -they grass him.
This reverse look the heart out of
the locals for a time, but they eventually got Into their stride and for the
last fifteen minutes of the game they
gave the visitors a most anxious time,
but fulled to score tite equalizing
goal, Nanaimo winning a hard game
by the odd goal.
Mr. Rogers, of Ladysmith, refereed
the game In a most excellent manner, keeping a firm hold all through
the game.
For the visitors, Stewart at left
back played a sterling game, while
Ross at right half also played a great
game. Fowler, Stobbart and Dlckiu-
eon, amongst the forwards, played.
good football. For the homesters, the
pick was Brewster; In fact he was
the best man on the field playing a
masterly game. Tho defonce was
sound and apart from Campbell giving
away u penalty, played real good defence, Tho forwards combined nicely for a reorganized front line and
with a little luck would have scored
on two or three occasions.
The teams were:
NANAIMO—Hughes; Zneearelll and
Stewart; Ross, McDougall and O'Don-
ncll; Dickinson, McMillan, Fowler,
Stobbart nud Husband.
CUMBERLAND — Walker; Conti

Wholesale Seizures Among Japanese
on West Coast—Nearly Two Score
Bouts Seized Without Licences
Seized for Illegal Ashing, between
thirty and forty Japanese fishing vessels have been taken in charge by the
Royal Canadian Mounted Police at
various points on the West Coast of
Vancouver Island during this week.
In conjunction with the Federal fisheries protection service, the police
have launched a drive against unlicensed fishermen, and are checking
up the papers of all the craft operating from the West Coast. Nine Japanese boats were seized on Monday,
the opening day of the campaign, and
since that time the number of seizures has been augmented steadily
until yesterday It was reported to be
nearly forty.
.Major J. A. Motherwell, Dominion
Inspector of Fisheries for British Col-
iimbiar with headquarters at Vancouver, has been at Port Alberni and
Clayoquot superintending the operations. He has now returned to Vancouver.
Japanese fishermen on the West
Coast have been giving quite a little
trouble this spring and summer. To
prevent them from getting too firm a
hold upon the fishing industry on the
West Coast, the Government this
year reduced considerably the number of licenses to be given to Japanese.
In Three Mile Limit
The fishermen unable to get licenses then adopted the expedient of
doing all their fishing beyond the
three-mile limit, claiming that no
licences were needed to fish beyond
territorial waters. To deal with this
evasion an order-ln-councll was
passed some weeks ago at Ottawa
ranking licenses imperative for all
fishing vessels of Canadian registry
clearing from Canadian ports to fish,
whether Inside or. outside the three-
mile limit. Fisheries patrol cruisers
have since then been busy on tho
West Coast overhauling and examining the Japanese craft, many of
which have been fishing as usal In
defiance of the government regulations. It Is said that the Japanese
have taken the matter up with the
Imperial Japanese Government, protesting against what is regarded as
the high-handed action of the Canadian  authorities.

Observations Of A
Federal Member
May 26. — Conservatives moved
amendment to budget blaming Government for not going further in
direction of free trade, hoping to
catch Prairie Progressives who are
all free traders. Sounds insincere to
blame Government for not doing what
they themselves are against doing.
All Conservative speakers strong for
protection principally for the Eastern
May 21.—Neill spoke on budget.
Protested strongly against further
Importations of Japan coal as ballast
by government ships. Demanded
better attention to the needs of B.C.
especially ln country ridings, which
In the past had been ignored for
benefit of city seats. Urged the claim
of B.C. to better and lower freight
rates. Had the motion of the Government to submit the Crow's Nest
agreement re railway rates to a committee, not been carried (all the B.C.
Conservatives voted against it) the
agreement would have automatically
gone Into effect, which would have
meant not only the continuation of
the present high rates but still greater discrimination against B.C., which,
Hon. John Oliver stated in his evidence before the committee, would
have spelt ruin to many of the B.C.
May 29.—Neill introduced Bill 122,
an act respecting Immigration copied
from New Zealand Act. Provides
that every immigrant before coming
to Canada must apply In writing for
permission which can be granted or
refused by Canadian Government.
Explained that as it applies to every
one, Japan Government could not ob
ject as they are not mentioned by
name and yet the act could be used
to forbid any oriental. Urged the
Government to conside It. BUI passed
first reading but questionable if It
will come up for second reading this
session as Government business takes
precedence now.

Baseball With The
Last Sunday saw two more games
of the. intermediate league decided
The Cumberland boys took the Bevan
team Into camp, 6-1, at Bevan, and
the Japs outslugged the Union Bay
boys 13-10 on the Recreation
Japs 13, Union Buy 10
This game was very disappointing
to the spectators, who expected to
see a. snappy brand of ball. Both
teams have played airtight ball at the
Hay, but the diamond evidently was
too fast for them. The visitors
chased In five runs In the first and
also the third, but were held scoreless
afler that.
The Japs on the other hand kept
on driving the runs in and celebrated
Dangerfleld's entry the box, In favor
of Andorson, in the fourth by scoring
live runs, thus tlelng the score. This
encouraged the Japs and they added
a run in the fifth and two in the
eighth.    Score by Innings:

Cumberland 0, Bevan 1
The Cumberland intermediates visited Bevan Sunday morning ln the
other IntiQmedlate league fixture.
The locals found little trouble ln
winning, the home team securing its
lone tally in the ninth Inning. Hunden fanned 15 batters for Cumberland
which will probably stand as a league
record for some time. Aitken pitched
steady ball for Bevan, allowing but
six safe singles In as many innings.
Westlield also twirled for Bevan and
gave away a hit every inning for
throe innings.
Both teams played good ball, although the diamond could hardly be
called fast. Cumberland bungled two
chances and Bevan four.

The visitors scored another ln the
eighth. Bannerman got his first hit,
and Horton, after two men were
down, hit a hot one to Bailey, which
bounded out to the field. Finch sin
gled, scoring Bannerman. Horton
was the third out when he was forced
at third on King's hit to Aitken
Only three men faced Shakespeare
in Nanaimo's half ot the eighth. A.
Beattle hit to second and was thrown

The locals won a league game on
Sunday last, when they met and defeated Chemalnus by a score of 17-4.
The game was a very one-sided affair
and was uninteresting from a spectator's point of view.

from the old country with this falcon
was one marked "especially important." This referred to the necessity
for cleanliness in the care of the
feathered creature.

The residents of Trent River Road
appreciate the Improvements that
have been made and interviewed Mr.
Thomas Menzles, M.P.P., during his
recent visit, who promised to use his

If the city fathers here in Cumberland
were to offer even five cents per cat,

one ot them sighted tabby It would
be a case of the survival of the litest.
Getting Rid of the Thistle
So many farmers and residents ln
our neighborhood are having difficulty ln eradicating the noxious weed
known as the thistle, and tor the
benefit ot those affected the following
cure Is submitted. The Department
of Agriculture published a book called
"Weeds of Alberta," and it Is trom
that book that the pointers have been
obtained regarding the control ot the
thistle. The book states that, as the
roots of the thistle extend below the
level reached by the plow, other ways
than by plowing have to be used to
destroy the weed. The use ot a stiff-
tooth cultivator Is recommended, as
it cuts away the stalk and leaves of
the plant, and the roots finally die
from lack of air.
This method has been followed for
the past three years and with excellent results. In the fall of 1919, a
field was plowed which was bad with
thistles, and in 1920 a stiff tooth duck-
foot cultivator was used on the
thistle patches Just as the plants
started to show' above the ground,
which was not until May. During the
summer and fall, even to October, the
stiff tooth cultivator was used as soon
as the new stalks were noticeable,
which would be trom a week to ten
days after the previous cultivating.
In 1921, the thistle patch was watched
very carefully, in only five places did
any thistles grow, and ln these the
plants were small. This manner of
cultivation Is the only one that has
been found to successfully destroy
the weed, which is so fast becoming
a pest.
As a proof ot the claim that fans
keep In very close touch with the current activities of their favorites, It Is
cited that Douglas Fairbanks has
Just received a letter trom an English
admirer, residing in Bombay, India,
addressed as follows: "Mr. Doug
Robin Hood, care ot The Virginian,
Hollywood, Calif." Mr. Fairbanks Is
now In the midst of producing "Robin
Hood," and "The Virginian" is on
schedule as one of his future pictures.

A missing English baronet, who is
stated to ho widely known on the
Pacific Coast, is being advertised for
in the English papers.
He is Sir Claud J. Rlvett-Carnac,
fourth baronet, who was In England
In 1908, a year before his father died.
Since that time he has not corresponded with the family, who do not
even know whether the present baronet, now about 44 years of age, is
aware that he has succeeded to the
Tho mother and sister desire to locate him, not only for sentimental
reasons, but because the baronetcy
fund, and the accumulated Interest In
the years since the death of tlio third
baronet, must he dealt with.
Practically nothing since 1!)16-1!U7
of an authentic nature is known of
the missing baronet, who it is stated,
declared when he left home tliat lie
would never return.
The family have evidence that tho
missing man has been seen on the
Pacific Coast. A newspaper reported
in 11115 his marriage to an actress in
Sun Francisco.
Sir Claud went to South Africa
early in the war, served ln the Cape
Mounted miles, and won a medal with
five clasps.
The heir to the title is Sir Claud's
cousin, William Perclval Rlvctt-Car-
nac, of London, England.
Col. Percy T. Rlvett-Carnac of Che-
mainus, who is widely known in the
Island, and Is also a South African
war veteran with distinguished service, is a relative of the missing baronet.

the load of sand was delivered and
tbO father had  It dumped    under    a
cherry tree and  a board    was    put

with little buckets and spoons, fush-

!f the sand  was  carried   uway,   the
nice sand pile would In time be all

graduatos, the clean, unsoiled pages
of your life lying white before you
Tiie poet truly bus said: "Of all
.ad words of tongue or pen, the sad
lest nro these: it might have been."
There Is no use ln recalling the old
class motto: "The mill will never
grind with the water that is past,"
■till, a fellow, and a lass, too for that
mailer, who graduated long ago, cannot help kicking himself, sometimes,
for the blunders be has made.
Hut what right have we has-beens
lo butt In, anyway? This season belongs to the class of 1922. The young
gentlemen and ladles who stand today
In all the beauty of their youth are
having their commencement and they
are entitled to the spotlight and the
center of the stage. We do not envy
i hem, for we know the pathway
ahead is strewn with heartaches and
jitter disappointments.
This is their day. The flowers
never were quite so beautiful; the
sun never quite so fair. It Is one of
their big, happy days. The next will
he their wedding day. The really
glorious days of life are few; and

Many people when passing a shop
where automobile storagt batteries
nre sold must have noticed ln the
window one or two bntterles cut open
to» show the interior construction.
These sections show the edges of the
load plates used in the battery and
botween the plates very thin corrugated sheets of wood. These shoots
are known as separators and while
perhaps appearing relatively unimportant have Iu fact been the subject
of extensive research.
Wood for battery separators must
possess special chemical and physical
properties and until very recently the
wooden separators used In Canada
were made almost exclusively of Imported woods. The Forest Products
Laboratories of the Forestry Branch,
Department of the Interior, recently
undertook research, to determine
whether any Canadian wood was suitable for separator work, and as a result found a most excellent material
in tho yellow cypress of British Columbia. Tills wood was found to possess tiie requisite properties to a high
degree and Is now in relugar commercial use for the manufacturers of

Milk  Goats
Milk goats are particularly adapted
for the small-holder, and for people
in outlying districts, as they enable
one to become more self-supporting,
and are of great use in cleaning up
brush weeds, etc.
When you realize tliat a good average goat will supply you with two
quarts of rich, delicious milk a day,
and that from that milk you can make
butter «and cheese, you will want to
keep a gont, just as you now keep
chickens to get your own fresh eggs.
It is recommended, however, that two
goats he kept, so that one would al
ways be In milk, nud besides, no
animal does well alone. You can
keep a goat at a cost of from a dollar
to a dollar and a half a month.
The prejudice existing against milk
goats in the minds of lliose who have
not had experience with them Is duo
lo ignorance. Nanny goats have no
objectionable odor—rather the opposite—and the milk, Instead of being
strong-tasting, as some people imagine, is ns sweet and wholesome, if not
more so, than any got from cows
The goat, moreover, ls..a dainty and
particular feeder, and will not-toucli
soiled food; this nnd the open air lire
they enjoy accounts for their immunity from tuberculosis. Out of
ovor 60,000 goats killed for food In
one abattoir alone in the States
during the last ten years not one case
of tuberculosis was found.
Goat's milk is rich, containing from
live to six per cent hutterfat, and yet
the fat globules ore so small that the
milk Is digested in one-third of the
time it takes to digest cow's milk;
tills Is why goat's milk make's such
an ideal food for infants and invalids.
lloast kid equals, If it does not surpass roast lamb, and mature goats or
neuters are used as mutton, and in
ninny parts of the world are the only
source of supply of that food.
As showing the distribution of goats
througbout the world, It may be mentioned that iu India there are 30,000,-
000; in United States, 3,000,000; ln
Mexico, 4,000,000; in Argentine, 4,000,-
000; in Brazil, 10,000,000; In France,
1,500,000; in Germany, 3,600,000; In
Spain, 3,00,000, etc.
A good average common goat ln
milk will cost from $40.00 up. Milk
goats with some breeding ln them will
fetch higher prices, and registered
pure-bred stock of high quality Is
worth on the basis of $75.00 and up
for five months' old kids. Remember
that goats, especially good ones, are
scarce and the supply will not equal
the demand for years to come, »and
that although'the first cost Is high,
the feed cost is only nominal and a
good milker will soon pay fir Itself.
When buying a goat, see it milked
or got a line on tiie milk yield of its
dam or sisters. There are people exploiting the goat business for ail it is
worth, and ready to take advantage
of your ignorance.
When buying a pure-bred or regis
tered grade goat, get the seller to
hand you the Canadian or American
registration papers, together with
transfer application form duly signed,
and If the ear tags are not in the
goat'B ears get them also.
Angora Coats
Anguras are entirely distinct from
milk goats, being raised for their wool
or mohair. They are white goats
with long, curly coats, horns and
drooping ears. Hundreds of thou
sands are kept in the States of Wash'
ington aud Oregon, as well as other
States to the South. They have not
been bred to any great extent In
British Columbia, but should do well
here. The poorer grades are used for
clearing land.
Why labor to clear land? Let goats
do It for you and bring In an Income

Annihilation Of A Nation
Montenegrins Effort to Prevent Annexation.of Their Country to
Serbia—Reparations Commission Doesn't Know to Whom
to Pay $2,000,000 Collected for Montenegro
At Genoa this week the destitute
remnant of the Government de jure
of Montenegro will Journey from Its
headquarters in the old mansion at
7 Via Volturno, Rome, and before the
Supreme Council of the Allies attempt
to secure a recognition, which, while
frequently and eloquently acknowled-
cd by various heads of the Entente
chancelleries, has always been Ignored by their representative bodies
—the Supreme Council, the Council
of Ambassadors and the League of
Nations.   «
The anomaly is so extraordinary
that an inquiry Into Its causes should
be of vital concern for all those who
still believe in saving some fragments of the war's Idealism, almost
obliterated by succeeding conventions.
One need not be a partisan ot the
arguments advanced for the Independence of Montenegro on the one hand,
or for her absorption by Serbia on
the other, without being able to
realize where the truth lies.
It Is perfectly obvious why Italy
for political, strategic and dynastic
reasons should wish It to be restored
to full liberty of action as an Independent State.   It Is equally obvious
why France should not desire this to
be so. The propaganda of each, In
order to secure Its-ends, Is open to
suspicion. Moreover, the noncommittal attitude of the British Govern
ment is no mystery. There is only
one possible deduction to make from
the refusal ot this Government ot the
request made ln the House ot Commons to publish the report of the
Count de Sails on Montenegrin conditions. The report utterly condemned
the methods practiced by Serbia and
supported by France and the French
Generals, Franchet d'Esperey and
Venal, by which Montenegro was annexed to Serbia, and the publication
of these things by the British Government would hardly be considered aB
a friendly act toward France, whose
sensitiveness has been one of the
most trying elements ln post-bellum
It does not particularly matter
whether the de Sails report confirms
ln all Its gruesome details, "The
Bloody Album of the Karageorge
vltch.' • The fact that It Is a general
confirmation of the alleged atrocities
of the Serbs In Montenegro Is quite
sufficient for all reasonable persons,
And, finally, It Is perfectly natural
that   our   own   State   Department,

having found It necessary ln January,

of Montenegro, should not care to no
bothered with an explanation as to
why It did so—should, ln fact, ignore
all requests made by the de Jure Government of Montenegro for an explanation.
A Grave Injustice
The only thing that matters is that
a grave Injustice has been done a
brave and ancient people. The steps
by which this injustice has been developed may be read as an open
Montenegro, with an area about
that of Connecticut and a population
about that of Rhode Island, became.
In the seventh century, the cradle ol
the tribes of Slavs pressing down into
the Balkans from the northeast, and
ln the succeeding five centuries, principally under Its Kings, Bodin and
Michael, It greatly flourished until
Incorporated ln the great Serbian
Kingdom of the middle ages.
This kingdom was obliterated by
the Turks on the Plain ot the Blackbird—Kossovo, 1389—and henceforth
Montenegro, whose black shadow of
its greatest mountain, Lovscbem,
gave to It Its name, because the
asylum tor the Slavs escaping from
the slavery ot the Turks. They and
the survivors of Kossovo, mostly
Serbians aristocrats, formed the new
Montenegro, which for centuries was
the only nation ln the peninsula
which successfully defied the invasion
of the Turks, even when the latter
had passed on and were thundering
at the gates of Vienna. Under Its
Bishops, Princes, and finally a King,
Montenegro always took the lead in
the successive attempts to drive the
Turks from Europe, and Its moun
tains as often offered a sure refuge
to the defeated survivors, Montenegro fired the first shot iu the first
Balkan war of 1912, sent 10,000
troops to aid Serbia against Bulgaria
ln the second Balkan war of 1913,
and followed Serbia Into the World
War ln August, 1914.
King Nicholas, of Montenegro, who
died In exile.a year ago, has been
accussed of trying to make a separate
peace with Austria in the spring of
1915. If he did so, nothing came of
the negotiations, for ln the Autumn
ot that year we find his adult male
population mobilized to a man and
gallantly defending the left flank of
the Serbian Army as It retreated from
Belgrade. Then there was the sur
render of Mount Lovschon, which
was said to command the Austrian
ships in the Bay ol Cattaro—commanded them It only It had possessed
12-Inch guns, which the Allies, after
numerous promises, failed to provide.
Again negotiations with Vienna were
reported, but it there were any they
must have proved as unsuccessful as
the former, for Nicholas and members
ot his responsible Government fled
to France. During the period, of Austrian occupation the Invaders had no
more success ln establishing a provincial government In Montenegro
than Serbia now has in establishing
one of annexation.
All through the war and down to
the time of the armistice Entente
statesmen and even President Wilson
repeatedly spoke with the same fervor about restoring Montenegro as
they did about the restoration of Bel-
glum and Serbia, about the lost provinces of France, about the rights ol
Greek nationals in Turkey.
Influence of Two Events
But two events were to take place
in November, 1918, which were lo
make all these pious utterances ineffective at the Paris peace conferences and at the other conferences
that followed—ineffective even before
the Council and the Assembly of the
League of Nations,- An almost humorous episode ot the situation is that
the Reparation Commission has
$2,000,000 collected tor and due Montenegro, but doosu't apparently know
to whom to pay It although Serbia has
put ln a claim.
In extenuation of the attltudo of
the Washington Government It has
been officially stated that tho presence of the de Jure Government of
Montenegro at Rome Is quite Irregular. Is it, however, any more Irregular than the presence of a Russian
embassy at    the    defunct Kerensky

Government at Washington?
Now what were the two events
which in November, 191S, seemed to1
change the entire status of Montenegro? In the lirst place, a National
•\ssenibly was elected in Montenegro
in November 19, and five days later,
neeting at Podgorica, proceeded to
/ote the annexation of the country
o Serbia and to abolish the dynasty.
Then the Government at Belgrade
'ratified" this vote. We see, there-'
ore, that the present onicially ac-,
opted, but legally unacknowledged,
tatus of Montenegro had ils origin
n the vote of the National Assembly
it Podgorica. It is said in extenua-
ion of the Serbian officials who con-
lucted tlio elections wilh the aid of
lie French military that It was Im-
losslblo to gather the old Assembly
lecause two-fifths of the doputiea
/ere refugees abroad, and so it beanie necessary to elect u now one.
.low this election was absolutely un-
iotistituttonnl, as no opportunity wm
;lven tor ihe gathering of the old
Parliament which hail been ordered
o re-assemblc by royal decree on tlle
lay after -the armistice was signed.
It docs not matter whether the Sor-
ilan officials, who were hurried from
llelgr'ade to supervise tho elections,
.'xcrciscd all their Ingenuity and honesty to have the elections lair. The
call for the elections in itself was an
illegal act, and, in its defiance of tho
Jecrce assembling the old Parliament, quite open to suspicion.
But was tills election fairly con-
duoted—and the report of the Count
de Sulis confirms that fact—why is
the report not published? In the circumstances it Is perfectly fair to believe tliat the report confirms nothing
of the sort; that its conclusions are,
on the contrary, quite the opposite.
This belief iinds both color and proof
In the stories told by Montenegrin
refugees in this country and in the
added fact tliat the people at home
are trying to show in every possible
way that they object to lhe domination of Serbia.
is It Reasonable!
And consider the history of Moute-
uegor, consider the history of Serbia.
Does It seem reasonable that the aristocrats of the Black Mountain, after
the struggle of centuries to maintain
their independence, and when that
independence was actually achieved
should suddenly decide to bocomo the
members of a people whoso ancestors
were the farm servants of those who
escaped from the slaughter of Kossovo? An ulllrmative answer does not
appeal to the understanding.
Nearly a year ago the Montenegrin
Government dispatched to the State
Department at Washington a memorandum relating to tlio revocation of
the exequatur of tile Montenegrin
Consul General, F, i>. Dix, resident
at New York. Aside from tbe specific
nature of the protest, as its general
lines will bo followed by the delegates at Genoa, It may not be found
uninteresting to read here the exact
contention of the Government de jure
in regard to tlle present situation.
The document, which is signed by
J. S. Plamenatz, Premier and Minister of Foreign Affairs, says iu part:
"When the Serbian troops, led by
French officers, entered Montenegro
and accomplished the annexation ot
tiie allied Montenegro by force and
bloodshed; and when the Montenegrin people rose in arms against this
new oppressor, President Wilson, at
one of the sittings of the i'eace Conference, composed a message which
was communicated to the .Montenegrin people through the Montenegrin
Government and my means of the
French military authorities. Hy this
telegram the representatives of the
great powers appealed to the Montenegrin people to stop all further
bloodshed, assuring them tbat they
would he given tho right of free self-
"The term 'free self-determination'
cad be understood in only two ways:
either the right of self-determination
as foreseen in the Montenegrin Constitution or the self-determination
which was granted even m onomvl
provinces, such as Hleswig, Upper
Silesia, etc.
"if   President  Wilson's   message   I"
ilie people of Montenegro meant tho
Ilrst method, then Montenogro should
have been restored In the same way
as Belgium and Serbia, If. however,
the second method was Intended bv
the words 'free Belt-determination,'
this should have been carried out by
means of a plebiscite, which would
naturally mean the withdrawal of the
Serbian Army of Occupation, while
Lhe vot'ng would be conl rolled by the
great allied powers.
"However, neither the ono nor the
other has yet been put into practice,
so that the question of .Montenegro
still remains open, while Ihe great
powers are hound to settle it in favor
of the constitutional liberty of the
.Montenegrin  people.
"Taking Into consideration all the
foregoing facts, tlio royal Government
of Montenegro cannot believe that

"As a physician who knows that if it were

everything in my power to educate women

Every Gossard is hygienically correct. Properly fitted to the figure for which it was
designed it will give scientific support to
abdominal and back muscles, with no chance
of undue pressure at the waistline; the organs
of nutrition will be free from pressure; the
erect posture which is induced will encourage
