SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM.
Trustees Of Cumberland
Relief Fund Present Two
Definite Propositions
Public Meeting To Be Held on Tuesday To Receive The
Deliberations of The Trustees.
The Cumberland Reliet Fund Committee held an Important meeting on
Monday last, when the following plan
was unanimously adopted, to be presented at a Public Meeting to be held
ln the Council Charters on Tuesday,
March 20th at 8 p.m. sharp, Tbe whole
question of relief to dependents ot
the victims ln the recent explosion
waa thoroughly gone Into, several
plans being discussed, but the committee think that, in the following recommendations they have solved a
most difficult question,
Oentlemeii:—
The Board of Trustees appointed to
administer the monies held ln ttrust
under the name of The Cumberland
Mine Disaster Reliet Fund, and instructed to prepare plans for tbe equitable dlstrtbtution of the same, beg to
report as follows:
We have carefully considered the
question of equitable distribution and
would suggest two methods as being
in our opinion fair and llkly to prove
workable. (Vli) (1). The Distribution
of the Fund by Block Grants or Single
Payments, and (2) The Distribution
of the Fund on the deferred plan or by
Monthly Payments.
There are two matters upon which
your Trustees desire to be Instructed
for their guidance.
(1) Is It the wish of the meeting tbat
the amounts paid out as temporary relief through the Government Agent, be
considered as being a part of tbe
whole plan of relief, and be considered
by your trustees for the purpose of
equalizing further allottments, aB payments made in advance from this fund.
(2) Is It the wish of the meeting,
tlmt your trustees should take into account the amount of property, real or
personal, owned by those who are to
be the recipients of benefits from this
fund.
Plan number one is as follows: ,
The distribution of the fund shall
proceed on the unit basis, and the
cash value of the unit be determined
by a division of the total cash by the
total number of units allotted.
Forty units to be allotted to each
widow and ten units for each child
under sixteen yearB of age.
In special circumstances viz illness
of the mother ot children a further
ten units may be allotted at the discretion of tbe committee.
In special domestic circumstances,
a further ten units may be alotted at
the discretion of the committee.
In tbe case of the loss of a person
other than a husband, fifteen units to
be allotted.
In order to meet other contingen
cles the committee may set apart a
further block of one hundred units to
meet such contingencies.
Plan number two Is as follows.
In the events of the meeting preferring the defended payment plan we
recommend
That the fund be administered on a
monthly payment basis by units as
follows:
Clause (1) The cash value ot tbe
unit in all cases to be twenty cents.
For widow, thirty-live units. Each
child under sixteen years of age, ten
units. Example mother and Ave children will get a total of 86 units per
month, making a cash value of 117.00
thereby supplementing the Compensation Allowance.
Clause (2) Special circumstances
will be considered by the trustees
who favour the setting aside ot tbe
sum ot fl.OOO (or this purpose, awards
trom this amount to be given in addition to the awards in Clause one.
In the event of re-marrlage the
trustees favour the payment to the
widow of an amount equal to one years
payments to herself, or such proportion ot the remaining funds as the
.trustees think equitable payments to
children to be carried on as before remarriage.
Clause (3) In the event ot removal trom the Province, the trustees
favour the payment to the widow ot
an amount equal to two years payments to her self, or such proportion
of the remaining funds as the trustees shall think equitable, plus the
estimated full amount due tor each
child.
Clause (4) In the case ot a son
lost In the disaster the trustees favour
the award ot a lump sum of $250 to
the parent or parents, with no further
award from the fund.
Your trustees would call attention
to the fact that the plans suggested
are the result of careful deliberation
and represent the unanimous opinion
of the board-giving as we feel a definite
statement of the principles by which
we propose to be, guided In our administration, and assuring a full and pro
per consideration of all those who
have legitimate claims upon the fund.
All of which ls respectfully sub'
mltted.

BRILLIANT SUCCESS
CLUB NOTES.
The lecture on the "Study of B. C.
History" by Prof. W. N. Sage, last Saturday evening In the Lecture Hall ot
the Cumberland Literary and Athletic
Association was well attended by a
very appreciative audience-and those
present will bear, that the people of
Cumberland are fortunate to be able
to attend lectures of such an educational standard.
The lecture that was scheduled for
March 24th "The Alaskan Coal Fields
and the possible effects on the Coal
markets of the Pacific Coast" by Geo.
Watkln Evans, Consulting Coal Mining
Engineer, has been postponed until
some time tn May.
Tbe next lecture will be on April
7th ln the Lecture Hall of the Athletic Association on "Other Worlds than
Ours" by Prof. D. Buchannan of the
B. C. University.
Rugby Football Notes.
J. W. Gibson, the director of Elementary Agricultural Education, will
give an Illustrated lecture ln the Anglican Hall, on Monday, March 19th at
8:00 P.M.
The lecture, under the auspices of
the Parent Teachers' Association deals
with various aspects ot town improvement by means of school and home
gardens and hy the planting ofshrubt
and trees.
Under the supervision of Principal
Webb an eight foot border has been
made round the old school building
This will be planted In shrubs, thesi
being supplied by the Department ol
Agriculture.
Mr. Webb ls also organizing a
scheme under which most of the pupils of the upper classes will undertake to make some real Improvement
to the grounds surrounding their respective homes. Work, not money, being the main ingredient of this plan,
there should be no objection on the
part of the parents.
Our principal believes that most
people are in this city, because they
have not been able to do better ln another; hence it must be the 'best' city
for such. Why not make it as pleasant as possible? The City has a great
asset In the maple avenues, and a little
more work could be made to give excellent results.
The Cumberland TIGERS Rugby
Football Team ls scheduled to play the
Vancouver Native Sons at Brochton
Point at 3:30, March 17th.
The C. P. R. has arranged for a special round trip rate of (5.40 plus 6c or
($6.46) from Union Bay to Vancouver
and return. The Boat will leave Union
Bay at 6:30 P.M. (on Friday).
A special train will leave Cumberland depot at 4:46 P.M. for Union Bay.
A train will also meet the boat at
Union Bay on Sunday morning.
HIGH SCHOOL CLUB MEETING.
The regular weekly meeting of the
Girls' High School Club was held last
Thursday evening.
A debate was held, the subject being "To resolve tbat the elghteents
century showed more progression than
the nineteenth." Misses Florence
Jones and Fannie Strachan upheld the
affirmative, while Misses Mildred Calnan and Connie Bird upheld the negative, the latter winning,
Mrs. Bunbury and Miss Dalton acted
as judges during the evening.
KLONDYKE DANCE
IN NEAR FUTURE
The Courtenay-Comox Board ot
Trade will hold a big dance In the near
future and have designated the big
event a "Klondyke" dance. Mr. W.
Eadle has been appointed chairman ot
the general committee and several
other committees have been appointed
so that every member of the Board of
Trade will have something to do In
connection with this year's business
men's dance. Last year the event was
a memorable affair but will not be in
It for a moment with what Is being
planned now. There will be stunts
galore, those who attend being treated
to a real picture of conditions as they j
existed ln the Yukon during the early
days of the gold (ever that took thousands of adventurers to tbe tar north.
A great deal of mystery surrounds the
preparations for this dance and the
committees ln charge feel confident
tbat they have something In store for
the amusement lovers ot the Valley.
Fuller particulars will be announced
later.
The Ilo Ilo Dance Hall was the
scene of a delightful social function
last Friday evening when the teaching
staff of the Cumberland Schools entertained some two hundred guests at
an Informal dance. Yellow and pink
chrysanthemums and evergreens were
predominant In the scheme ot decoration. These In addition to the colored streamers and lights lent a fairyland effect to the whole. There were
several novelty dances during the
evening, of which the "Teachers'
Trot" and the "Mathematical Glide"
caused a great deal of lively enthusiasm. The teaching staff deserve groat
credit for the splendid manner In
which the affair was managed, and
judging from the complimentary remarks of the guests, their efforts were
crowned with glorious success.
Among those present were:
Messrs, George Tarbell, Warren

SUCCESFUL WHIST DRIVE
WEDNESDAY LAST
On Wednesday night the Comox Potato Growers' Association held a
whlst drive ln Booths' Hall, the patronage being great enough to require

card players. Ladles prizes were won
by Mrs. H. 8. Baker, first; Miss Warren, second and Mrs, Bonce consolation. Oentlement's prizes were won
as follows:
Mr. J. A. Fletcher, first; Mr. Harry

Courtenay'B Volunteer Fire Department made a smart run on Thursday
morning to give Mr. McGregor, of the
British Columbia Fire Underwriters'
Association an opportunity to realize
just how efficient the Are lighters
have become and just what a small
chance a fire now has in the city of
Courtenay. Mr. McGregor went over
to the Courtenay Hotel and phoned an
alarm to the telephone exchange, the
operator as usual relaying to the fire
chief, Mr. Len Piket. From the time
the message was sent to the telephone
exchange until the fire department was
on the scene of the supposed fire five
minutes had elapaed. The display on
the part of the Are department was declared to be exceptionally good and
showed that the boys are giving a rare
service to the citizens of the city.
SHAMROCK TEA
SPLENDID SUCCESS
MERVILLE GARAGE
BURNS TO THE GROUND
On Sunday last at about seven thirty
o'clock the Merville Garage was burned to the ground and with It were consumed a Urge quantity of grain and
stock feed that had been kept there by
Mr. R. H. Shaw, the Merville merchant.
Besides this there were two cars destroyed, one of which was a Day-Elder
truck owned by Mr. Jack Ewart and a
Ford cor owned by Mr. Shaw. The
building was erected when Merville
was established and has been used recently by the two parties mentioned
above as being the chief losers of property aside from the Land Settlement
Board who owned the building. The
loss will probably total between six
and seven thousand dollars.

Province of British Columbia, In an
attempt to secure an additional taxation on fuel oil. This foreign product
from which we have little or no protection Ib seriously undermining our
coal Industry and stealing away our
very existence.

President, Cumberland Board of
Trade.
ST. JOHN'S AMBULANCE
ASSOCIATION
The above Association will bold
their regular whlst drive and dance In
the O. W. V. A. Hall on the March 17th
at 8 p.m. sharp.
General admission 60 cents.
The coal shortage In Eastern Canada last winter, and Its resultant discomforts, occupied the members of
the Federal House for the best port of
a day. Many notable speeches were
made by Eastern Members, who
speaking from an Eastern view-point
totally Ignored the claims of the ex-
trme west, British Columbia. Mr. Neill,
on rising sold:
"Some hours ago in the debate, the
Minister of the Interior (Mr. Stewart)
made the remark that having regard
to the ever-threatening danger of the
United States putting an embargo on
coal coming Into Canada, it behooved
the government, or It was the Intention of the government to seek to develop and enlarge the fuel resources of
Canada. He might also have added,
to preserve the existing coal resources.
I heartily agree with him in that position, and I bave been pleased to-night
to hear hon. members from Ontario
describe the hardships to which they
have been subjected through lack ot
coal in the East, because perhaps they
will now pay some attention to the
coal situation ln British Columbia,
which I brought to their attention last
year. My plea at that time fell on deaf
ears; but when It ls a case ot "coming
home to the hangman" perhaps they
will take more interest ln the subject.
I want to mention briefly what the
situation Is, which Is more acute than
It was last year, in connection with the
mines in Vancouver island and In
British Columbia generally. In spite
of all this coal scarcity ln Canada they
are going out of business from wont
of orders—not trom any want ot market—Dl'E TO THE ENCROACH
MEM OF FUEL OIL LMTORTEI)
FROM UNITED STATES WITH A
VEST SMALL DUTY. But for fuel oil
there would be enough demand to
keep the mines working 76 per cent
more than they are working at the
present time. But the mines in some
cases are working only two days a
week, while in other cases they are
shut down, on account of the competition of Imported fuel oil. The miners
In these mines, with all the dangers
which they bave to face—60 having
been killed tbe other day—are paid a
very modest wage. So that the trouble
ls not due to excessive labour cost. The
mines arc run ln a thoroughly modern
and efficient mannr. In one case there
ls not a steam boiler In Uie whole
mine; It Is all run by electricity generated by water-power. But tbe trouble
la that the coal mines cannot compete
with tbe cheap fuel oil which Is
sloughed off on the market from the
American producers of gasoline.
Now, what happens to any Industry
when It gets down to habitually working only two or three days a week? As
you can imagine, large capital Is tied
up, and It means that those Interested
will quit. That Is what ultimately
must happen; they will go out of business.
And what happened a few years ago?
These are deep mines, and If not
worked they soon flood. A deep mine
when flooded Is about as costly to reopen as to develp a new mine. So
when these deep, costly, highly equipped mines go out of business they go
out of business for all time, once they
become flooded. What happened two
years ago may happen two years
hence. Two years ago, owing to some
economic disturbance In the States-
no threat of war or anything of the
kind—the sellers of fuel oil notified
British Columbia consumers that In
three months time there would be no
more oil exported Into British Columbia. What did the railroad and manufacturing people do? They hurriedly
converted back their plants to coal
burners, and very glad tbey were to
find the coal mines of Vancouver Island waiting patiently and ready and
eager to fill their wants. But In a very
short Ume Industrial conditions In the
States changed and fuel oil was once
more available. Immediately tbe consumers, selfish, as most business interests are, converted back their
plants to the somewhat cheaper and
more convenient method of using oil.
Let me predict what will happen two
years hence after the coal mines have
been shut down. Owing again to some
economic disturbance, or to a threat
of war or to any other reason whatever—no reason was given last time,
none may be given in the future—supposing the United States again put an
embargo on fuel oil? A few years ago
we would hove laughed at an embargo on anthracite coal, would we not?
But to-day It is in sight. They may
put an embargo on fuel oil, but by
then our mines, owing to our selfish
neglect, will have gone out ot business. Where will our railways, our
ships, and manufacturing industries
get their supply of fuel then? Tbere
will not be any. What will be the position? Suppose war threatens with
some nation bordering on the Pacific,
what will we do when our oil supply ls
cut off and we have no coal to resort
to?
Last year I pleaded with the House
to put a duty of two cents a gallon on
fuel oil in order at that Ume to preserve our coal Industry. I thought It
worth while not to let one of our Canadian Industries go out of business.
This year I no longer plead, I threaten
and warn this House and the government that in two years or less our
railroads, our ships and industries may
be desiring coal and will not be able
to get It. It will not then be the loss
of the Industry, It will be the fact that
we will be throttled as a nation, for
we will not have any fuel supply ln
British Columbia, and that Is of far
greater national Importance than even
the destruction of this single Industry.
Therefore, I suggest and urge upon the
Minister of Finance (Mr. Fielding)
that he consider once again tbe national Importance ot Imposing such a
duty on fuel oil as will enable these
cool mines to be kept In operation at
least to meet our future wants. Otherwise when the day of travail comes u-
pon us and finds us with no fuel, we
as a nation will bitterly regret the
I selfish Indifference we have displayed
towards the situation out there."
MINING TOWN IN
CROWS' NEST PASS
IN GOOD CONDITION
The following paragraphs concerning one of the Province's smaller municipalities will be of Interest to readers of the Islander In Comox District,
particularly to those who reside in tbe
cities of Cumberland and Courtenay.
The financial statement of the city
of Fernle, dated December 31 last,
shows wonderful progress towards financial perfection.
Taxes hove been easily collected,
In tact, 87,.93 per cent of 1922 taxes
were collected during the year, which
is even higher than 1921's record of
87.4 per cent.
General revenue exceeded expenditure by (30,149.31, increasing the city's current banking account to tbe
enviable total of 862,839.38 credit. The
waterworks show a profit of $18,930.63,
andn the electric light, 314.734.69. In
addition to the above, the sinking
fund amounts to $138,972.94, which
ls $7,264.41 over requirements.
The city to date has bonds outstanding to the amount of $380,000; after
deducting public utility Issues and
sinking funds on hand It leaves the
net debt at $48,027.00, or one of the
smallest debts per capita of Canadian
municipalities.
This Is certainly an excellent showing and the people of the Crow's Nest
mining town can consider themselves
very fortunate. Courtenay Is advancing along the same line and should lu
a reasonable length of time be In a
similar position to Fernle. The Electric Light Department Is paying a fair
profit and the water department in a
yeor or two should show a satisfactory surplus. With tbe careful handling these departments ore receiving
there Ib no reason to doubt that the
city of Courtenay will become one of
the most prosperous cltltes In the
Province of British Columbia.

Morch 80th, at 8.00 P.M. for the

GLAD WE'RE ALIVE
On reaching the office this morning
a thought came to us, and here it is.
We would rather be a poor publisher
than to he asleep ln the tomb with
Caesar. We are glad to be alive—
glad to be here and not In the hereafter. It's great lo see this world of
today In its wonderful achievements.
It ts groat to have passed through the
winter and to be looking forward to
the coining of spring; to realize that
the resurrection of nature Ib near at
hand, that the bleak winds of winter
soon will give way to the BOft, fragrant zephyrs of spring. .Yes, It Is
great to bo alive when the earth is
filled with the sleeping forms of our
departed friends. And with these in
sptratlonal thoughts, we will tackle
our job nnd finish the day with—

Weddings
Kerr—Brown
The marriage of James A. Kerr, son
of Mrs. Wm. Kerr, Victoria, and Alva
Brown, fourth daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Fred Brown of Union Bay took
place at Belllngham, Wash, last Friday.
hTe bride was supported by MrB.
Doney, while Mr. Doney acted as best
man.
The bride looked charming in a
beautiful gown of white satin and
wore a veil and orange blossoms. She
carried a bouquet of white carnations.
Mrs. Doney wore o gown of peach colored crepe de chine and carried o bouquet of white carnations.
After the ceremony the happy couple left for Seattle where they are
spending their honeymoon after which
they will take up their residence ln
Belllngham, Wash.
BE CAREFUL, GIRLS
No young lady ever lost her hero because her hands happened to be a
little calloused from wielding the
broom or stained from dipping them
ln dishwater,
No girl ever fell down a lot ln the
estimation of her hero because she
stayed at home all afternoon and helped mother with the work, instead of
coming down town and putting on a
parade of eight miles.
No girl ever lost her hero because
she made life more pleasant for Dad
and smoothed Ihe wrinkles from his
brow and caused him to look forward
to the evening at home with pleaaure.
.No girl ever lost her hero because
she wasn't an adept at using all tho
latest and most popular slang of the
day, There is nothing ln slang for a
young man to udniiro and much less
a young lady. If the young lady wishes
the company of a worth while fellow-
she will avoid slang aB she would
poison. She will shun the girl or the
young man who uses the slang of today.
.No girl regrets losing a hero who
was a common, cheap, tin-horn sport
and she had better be a kitchen queen
lor dad and mother all her life than a
broken hearted drudge of a slave for
such a gralnloss brat a single day.
Just because n girl arrives at gray
hairs and faded cheeks ln single
blessedness Is no sign she didn't have
a chance. More than likely It is because she kept posted in market
values and refused to sell her heart
nnd happiness for a mess of pottage.

THE BUSINESS
OF SIDE ZONING
OTTAWA.—The town planning division of the Canadian National Parks
Branch of the Department of the Interior points out that the zoning of
cities becomes obligatory In Great
Britain during the present year. In
the United States more than one hundred cities have adopted zoning regulations and a number of Canadian
cities are also moving ln this direction
because "zoning stabilizes property
values" and reduces the cost of civic
government.
The zoning ot cities has for its purpose the direction of the future building development ot the city along orderly lines and this in the interest of
all the phases of city life—commerce,
Industry and residence. The cost of
jumble building on the moral Bide is
the destruction of the economic efficiency, happiness and life of the people
and the creation of social disorder,
disease and discontent. When slums
develop they create the gravest and
most expensive problem of communal
life. In an unzoned city, the houses of
the well-to-do are usually protected
from jumble building by private restrictions, though these restrictions
become less and less operative and
effective with the changes ln property
ownership. The dwellings of the poor
are often robbed of their light and
air and pleasant surroundings and degenerate into Blums, which become the
disease spots ot the city. Hospitals
and prisons have to be built and maintained at tbe public cost to deal with
the 111 effects of bad city building.
The distinct business side of zoning
brings Illumination to the fact that an
unzoned city ls constantly lowering
the assessment value of property and
thus decreasing the civic Income and
increasing general taxes. An industrious family man invests $5000 of his
life savings In a home. The property
is valued at (10,000 and the home
owner obtains a loan on the recognized security of 50 per cent, margin
in value. As soon as the transaction
is completed the owner finds that an
undesirable Industry is opened up
next door—this thhrough lock of zoning regulations. The borne value of
the citizen's property immediately
drops to XT.500 because the home environment has been changed for the
worse. The home owner Immediately
loses $2,500, I.e., 60 per cent, of his
life savings. The loan company loses
50 per cent, of its margin of security
and the city loses 25 per cent, of the
assessed value of the property because
It is immediately called upon to reduce
Its assessment by that amount. The
cost of zoning the city might roughly
be stated as one-twentieth of one per
cent, ot the assessed values Involved.
BRITISH WAR PENSIONS.
Tho Department of Soldiers' Civil
Re-Establishment, Ottawa, acting for
the HrlllHh Ministry nf Pensions, announce that awards ot permanent pension, and awards In respect of disabilities less than twenty per cent, made
and notified prior to August 19th,
1921 have, In England, become final

Kingdom, Irish Free State, Channel
Islands and Isle of Man continuously
since the 1st of April 1922, have regulations the right of appeal, provided such appeal Is received by Jne 30,
1923, except that in the case of Final
Weekly Allowances and Gratuities
awarded between the 1st of April and
tho 19th of August, 1921, the appeal
may be received not later than 6th
of February 1924.
No awards other than thoee above
mentioned are affected by this announcement, neither are the pensions
of those who have beeen elected to
take the Canadian scheme of pension.
All communications relating to appeals should bo addressed to tbe officer Paying Imperial Pensions, Department of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment, Ottawa.
POTATO EXPERIMENTS
AT INVERMERE, B. C.
(Experimental Farms Note)
At the present time there are three
methods of Improving tbe potato.
First, the purification of existing varieties and the maintenance of strong,
vigorous stocks. Second, the utilization ot bud mutations. Third, the development of new varieties from seed.
Under the first heading this station
ls testing out many of the present day
varieties that are being grown
throughout the Dominion. The varieties are kept absolutely pure, and
by roguelng and individual tuber selection vigorous stocks are obtained.
Individual tuber selection was started
three years ago, after hill selection
had been tried out for a number of
years aud found unsatisfactory. The
tubers are brought out to the light
three or four weeks before planting
time and allowed to sprout. Only
tubers showing marked sprouting tendencies are selected. All varieties do
not possess the same sprouting characteristics, but tbe grower will readily
learn to distinguish tho strong tubers,
and will select accordingly. With this
method the yields of 22 varieties have
been nearly doubled during the past
three years: the average yield of the
22 varieties from 1917 to 1919 being 14
tons 605 pounds per acre. The average yield ot the same varieties trom
1920 to 1922 was 27 tons 620 pounds
per acre. It ls our belief that a great
deal of study should be given the
sprout of the potato, as It may be possible to eliminate more of our present
day diseases by this method than by
others.
From the second method of bud mutation little hope can be held out ot
Improved varieties, although most investigators are constantly on the lookout tor mutations.
From seed balls, whether naturally
or artificially pollinated or croBB-
pollinated, it is possible to develop
new varieties. The seed is treated
similarly to tomato seed, being planted
in hotbeds and transplanted a couple
of times before being set out In the
open. From the large number of colors, shapes and forms that appear,
selection is necessary followed by
tests with standard varieties.
During the past two seasons some
work on soli fumigation has been carried on in the control of scab and
rhlzoctonla, creoline, pacullne and
crude carbolic acid being used. These
products are thoroughly mixed with a
small quantity of soil, broadcast over
the area, and thoroughly worked ln.
The results have been quite marked,
and further exprelmental work ln the
way of trying out various strengths
and times of application will be con
ducted.

AGRICULTURAL
ASSOCIATION HOLD
MONSTER MEETING
Mr. Huirh Stewart   Makes Offer of a
Five-acre Plot to tlio City.
On Monday night at the Agricultural Hall, Courtenay, a general meeting
of the members ot the Agricultural Association was held for the purpose of
considering the Idea of adding district
exhibits to the attractions at the annual fall fair. Mr. John Crockett, President ot the Association, occupied the
chair and there were present about
fifty members and friends of the Association. Mr. Hughes, as chairman
ot the committee In charge of the district exhibit proposal made a report
saying that he was afraid there was
not enought enthusiasm shown and
that before the committee would carry on he would like to hear from those
present on the subject. Personally,
be believed It a good Idea and would be
a great means of stimulating Interest
ln the fall fair. Denman Island people
would probably welcome the opportunity of exhibiting as a district and besides the Island there would be other
districts as follows: Sandwick-Grant-
ham, Mervllle-Black Creek, Comox-La-
zo-Nob Hill, Mlnto-Royston, Arden-
Lake Trail and Courtenay. He had ottered a cup valued at fifty dollars and
he asked that the Association augment
this with adequate cash prizes. Mr.
Allberry, another member of the committee said he thought there was too
little Interest shown to mako the Idea
a success.
He did believe that It would give the
fair a great impetus and thought it en
tailed a lot of work and did not think
the effort was worth while. Mr. John
Prltchard thought that the Comox District could come through on It and
spoke enthusiastically.
It was decided to go ahead with the
proposal and Incorporate the district
exhibits ln the annual prize list, stating what would be expected as exhibits. This decided the big fight of the
evening began. This was on the proposal to shift the location ot the Agricultural grounds from the Island
Highway to a point on the Cumberland
road and co-operate with other organizations in the city of Courtenay with
the Idea of forming a community centre that could be used as a park, children's play ground and athletic field.
Several of the business men of Courtenay were present and voiced their approval of the Cumberland Road site,
among them being Messrs. J. N. McLeod, Theed Pearse, W. 0. Marshall,
P. L. Anderton, F. P. Jeune and Mr.
W. G. Stubbs, Principal of the Public
School. After a lengthy dlscussison
Mr. Pearse presented the case for the
city men and made a strong plea for
the acceptance of tho new proposal.
Then It was the farmers' turn and the
President called upon Mr. Alexander
Urquhart to give his opinion to the
meeting. He strongly urged the meeting to sanction tbe purchase of the
grounds at present used by the Agricultural AsBsoclation under lease from
Mrs. Wm. Lewis. Mr. Wm. Duncan
followed and made an impassioned
plea for the support of the present
site. Mr. Wm. Wain also spoke against
the proposal to move to Cumberland.
Mr, Allberry, who has acted as judge
at many of the fairs throughout the
anywhere that could compare with
anaywhere that could compare with
the present and he was opposed to the
new scheme; anyway where was the
money coming from to finance It?
Rev, Fllnton Expresses Opinion.
The Rev. J. W. Fllnton. who had sat
still all evening listening to the debate,
was asked for his opinion and said he
considered a grave error would be
made If the Agricultural Association
were to vacate their present grounds.
He spoke of the scenic advantages, the
location ho satisfactory for the reception of Btock, etc. and concluded by
moving the following resolution:
"Having listened to the dlscussison on
the subject of acquiring grounds that
the Agricultural Association ls In favor of purchasing from Mra. Lewis the
present ground, containing two acres,
more or less, and that they proceed
with nil] despotch." This was carried
on a vote of three to one the actual
count being nineteen in favor of tho
resolution and seven against it. A
great many did not vote.
After the result ot the vote was
announced, Mr. Hugh Stewart addressed tho meeting saying that he
believed the meeting had done the
wise thing at this time and that It Uie
city of Courtenay would accept his
offer he would give five acres for the
same purpose that Mr. McPhee had
given his two acres and that there
WELL-KNOWN LADY
PASSES TO HER REST
The funeral of the late Mrs. Margaret Blrkett, who passed away at her
home in Nanaimo on the seventh instant was held on Sunday last, Internment being In the Presbyterian cemetery, Sandwlck, the services being conducted by the Rev. W. T. Beattie, of the
Presbyterian Church. The body had
been brought from Nanaimo on Friday
and had reposed at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. S. J. Plercy, Lower
Road, until two-thirty o'clock Sunday,
when It was removed to Its last resting place, followed to the church and
cemetery by a long cortege of members of the family and sympathizing
friends, a great many of whom had
been associated with Mrs. Blrkett
since the earliest times In Coniox Valley. Many beautiful floral tributes
were In evidence, one being sent aa a
token of esteem and sympathy by
Courtenay Assembly, No. 3, Native
Sons of Canada, whose members also
attended in a body. At the church the
hymns '"Asleep In Jesus" and "Forever With tho Lord" were sung by a
congregation that completely filled the
building. Tho service lu the church
over, the casket was carried from the
building through two lines of members
of the Native Sons to the cemetery
gate from where It was followed up
the hill to the grave, where It was reverently laid by Messrs. John Grieve,
William Grieve, Berkeley Grieve, Harry Plercy, Robert Cessford and J. W.
McKenzie, tour pioneers who acted
as pallbearers. The late Mrs. Blrkett

laughter. After Mr. Stewart took his
seat Mr. Wm. Duncan moved and Mr.
R. U. Hurford seconded a resolution as
follows: "That the Agricultural Association in general meeting assembled
Is In sympthy with the citizens of
Courtenay In an endeavor to secure a

LIFE WAS MISERY!
"I was reading the other day
about Neurasthenia, about tha
large number of people who were
troubled with this disease. It is
just what my wife had. She felt
miserable all the time and was constantly depressed. She would
waken in the morning and tell me
that something dreadful was going
to happen that day. Life was
nothing short of misery for her.
She was so depressed that I expected she would lose her mind
and have to go to a sanitarium
and 1 kept wondering how I
would get the money to pay for
her. She could not eat and had
no appetite for food. She was irritable and cranky most of the
time. If she was crossed in any
way, she would immediately work
herself up into a violent temper.
This worried me because she had
always had a kind and gentle dis-
I position und nothing which was
said or done seemed to irritate
her. I spoke to our family doctor
about her and he snid that her
trouble wus imagination and that
if she would try and forget about
her depression and look on the
bright side of life she would be
all right, Of course I didn't dare
tell her this because I know she
would get Into one of her tempers.
When she got over these fits of
temper, she was always weak and
111 and more depressed than ever.
The doctor said a tonic might
help her and gave me a prescription but this did not do her any
good. She tried all kinds of other
tonics with the same result. Carnol was recommended to me and I

BOARD OF TRADE
HOLDS A MOST
IMPORTANT SESSION
f1
Condition of Island Highway ap for
Discussion.—Application for New
Post Office BnUdtae; Turned
Down.
The Courtenay-Comox Board of
Trade held a regular monthly meeting on Tuesday last ln the City Hall
when the plan of reorganization was
advanced by the addition of Boveral
names to the various bureaux. A communication was read from Mr. A. W.
Nell, M. P. enclosing a copy of a report that had been submitted to the department by the Post Office Inspector. It was a comprehensive and complete document and stated that the
accommodation at the present post
office in Courtenay was adequate for
the needs of the place and that the
lease on the present premises does not
expire until the last day of December,
1924. Until that time at least tbe Inspector could not recommend the construction of a public building at
Courtenay. It ls therefore unlikely
that the post office building tbat tbe
people ot Courtenay have beeu asking
for a number ot years will not be an
accomplished fact for many, many
moons.
Another portion of Mr. Neil's letter
dealt with the establishment of ex
perlmental plots ln the District by the
Department of Agriculture, one on tbe
farm of Mr. R. U. Hurford on the Dyke
Road and the other on tbe farm ot
Messrs. Halliday Bros, on the Island
Highway at Sandwlck. Tbe Board of
Trade has repeatedly asked for the
establishment of an experimental farm
In Comox Valley and It Is surely gratifying to note that though the request
for the experimental farm has not been
met, the department evidently Is not
overlooking the Importance of the dls
rlct and It ls hoped that the benefit to
be derived from these two plots will
be greater than the lessons learned at
tbe plot established on the highroad
a few years ago and which was woefully neglected.
The Good Roads Bureau was requested to take up the condition ot the
road leading from the Island Highway
to the M. & M. sawmill at Grantham as
It is at present in very bad shape and
a great handicap to the shippers of
lumber from that district. Other roads
tbat will receive the attention of the
bureau are the Courtenay-Bevan high
way and the road into Camp Three of
the Comox Logging & Railway Com
pany. Mr. W. A. B. Paul spoke of the
damage done to the roads by heavy
trucks overloaded. A communication
was read from the Department of In
dustrlea of the Provincial Government
offering Information regarding certain Industries that It may be deemed
could be established ln the district.
Mr. W. A. B. Paul also brought up the
question of the short cut that could
be made from Little River to Courtenay if a road were constructed from a
point at Little River near Mr. Harvey's farm to the Island Highway at
Sandwlck near the Anglican Church.
It would bring the Little River—Lazo
district to within a distance of four
miles ot Courtenay as against the
eight miles that have now to be travelled between these two points. The re
quest that this road be constructed
brought a smile to many fsces as the
President Jocularly said that this was
a hardy perennial and had been talked
of for the last twenty-live years. Mr.
Plgott said that he thought there had
been a survey made when Mr. Robert
Grant was member ot the Legislature
for Comox but that the work had not
been gone on with and tbat nearly
every year or thereabouts there was a
new survey made. Mr. Theed Pearse
made a verbal report concerning the
proposal to construct a community
centre in conjunction with the Agricultural Association but that the latter organization, after the representatives of the Board had put tbe question up to, had turned the proposal
down and that therefore there waB
nothing more to report. The Mayor
who was present said that no action
has yet been taken on the offer of Mr.
McPhee but be would ask tbe Council
to seriously consider the acceptance
of the property as a playground and
park. Mr. W. Eadle, chairman of the
dance committee submitted a report
of the activities of hla committees and
said that a Klondike Dance would be
held on April 5th, and that great preparations were being made to enable
all patrons to enjoy a thoroughly
pleasurable evening.
A communication was read from the
B. C. Eelephoue Company enclosing a
schedule of rates and tbe secretary
was instructed to forward the communication to the residents on tbe Island
Highway.

PREMIER SCORED
PRONOUNCED VICTORY
It is doubtful if a political leader in
British Columbia ever scored a more
pronounced victory ln dealing with
public affairs than Premier Jobn Oliver did ln Vancouver when he outlined
the province's fight for fairer freight
rates to an audience which filled the
ball-room o ftbe Hotel Vancouver to
overflowing. For two hours tbe farmer-premier held his Immense audience and party politics were forgotten
in the discussion of an Issue which
must play a large part iu the future
development and prosperity of British
Columbia.
"Honest John" openly declared
"peaceful war" upon the C. P. R., hinting that the formation ot a third party ln this province had been brought
about by the Influence of tbe big railway company, and while anxious to
keep the freight rates matter out ot
tbe realm of politics, he declared tbat
It political opponents desired to Inject
politics Into the issue his hat was ln
the ring for a finish fight.
He reviewed the rates situation at
great length, explaining that tbe Federal Government at the time of Confederation had promised British Columbia equal rights ln railway matters,
but the covenant had not been lived
up to. The East was profiting at the
expense ot the West, but prominent
Eastern men, as well as newspapers,
admitted the Justice of British Columbia's claim, realizing that unity
among the provinces was essential to
the welfare of the country as a whole.
Briefly summarized, Premier Oliver's message to the public was that a
business corporation must not be allowed to profit at the expense of this
province and that the people of British Columbia had only to unite and
fight In order to secure equalization of
freight rates. This would result, he
plainly showed, ln the rapid Industrial
and commercial expenslon ot the Pacific Province.
"It la Impossible for me to tell the
story directly to every voter and citizen," he explained after tbe meeting.
"I Intend to talk to as many as possible
but must rely largely upon the newspapers to spread my message. They
reach all the people and the fight Is
for everyone."

Ladysmith Enter
Final For B.-K.
Cup Competition
Cumberland Beaton by a Narrow Mar.
gin—(iumei Full of Thrills from
Start to Finish.
Before a very good attendance, and
favored with good weather, Ladysmith and Cumberland United faced
each other on the Central Sports
grounds iu Nanaimo on Saturday last
to decide who Bhould play in the
final for the B. & K. Cup. Ladysmith simply out-classed the Island champions, having easily three-
forths of the game, and richly deserved their win. It was rather unfortunate that Conti lost control of himself
by striking McCormach, and was ordered oil' the field; at the same time
tft must be said that McCormack waB
the aggressor. However, what he received from Cnnti should be not only
a lesson to him, but to other playerB
as well when on the field of play.
Conti won the toss for Cumberland
and decided to take advantage by playing with the sun at tlielr backs. Referee Dawson callled all the players together and adminlshod them regarding foul iilay. which waH appreciated
by Hie funs.
Tlle bull was set lu motion by Ladysmlth, and It was evident from the
start that they meant business, for
they sel u pace so hot that it kept
Cumberland guessing, and It was a relief to the latter when a Ladysmlth
forward was pulled up for off-side. A
nice piece of combination on the part
of tlio Ladysmlth forwards brought
the ball to Cumberland goal, and what
might have happened at this Juncture
is questionable had Campbell not
kicked out to clear his lines. Strang on
tha right for Ladysmlth, got possession of the ball and after a nice run,
kicked past. Referee Dawson was letting nothing slip, and brought Mortimer up i'or using his elbows on Rafter.
The Cumberland forwards tried hard
to break through the Ladysmlth defense on several occasions, but somehow tliey could not get their old-time
combination in motion, and had to be
content with hard lines when they missed a good opening which they should
have taken bettor advantage of. Ladysmlth then continued to press and
their centre forward Bent iu a bard
shot which struck the upright   and
fortunately saved Cumberland. A mo
ment later McCormach, the Ladysmlth
right-half, who was easily the most
outstanding player on the field Bent iu
a low, fast shot that Just whizzed past
the bottom of the up-right. This piece
of work was well applauded by the
crowd on the stand. Cumberland was
showing signs of fatigue, due to the
persistent efforts of the Ladysmlth forwards. Conti was fouled, and from the
free kick, Bannerman got the ball and
crossed to the centre of the field,
when Tucker James put the ball past.
Ladysmith then started out on a rampage, but were repulsed, and Cumberland worked the ball down ln front of
goal, when Plump sent ln a good shot,
but Boyd was on tbe spot and cleared
his lines. Back they came, only to be
checked by Jock Orr, who sent the ball
well down the Held, and the forwards
rushed It to the goal, where the goalkeeper got hold of It, but was soon relieved by a Ladysmlth forward.
Through a misunderstanding of the
backs, the ball travelled to the foot
of the Inside right, who placed It in
the net for the first and winning goal
for Ladysmlth, amid great cheering.
Soon after this Jock Orr waa Injured ln heading the ball, and had to retire for repairs. Cumberland then set
out lu quest of gosls, and Bannerman
had a try, but Boyd saved, and returned the ball to Cumberland's end,
when I»rlmer fouled Matheson, and
was cautioned, Ladysmlth continued to
press until the whistle blew for half
time.
Second Half.
The second half found Ladysmlth
as full of pep as ever, and they forced matters bo strongly that Campbell
was compelled to kick out to relieve
the pressure. However, this did not
cause the Ladysmlth boys to relinquish their efforts, as they came back
again and forced Wilson to handle tbe
ball to clear his lines. Conti then
brought the ball down the field, and
with the aid of his forwards, tried
hard for the equalizer, but the Ladysmlth defense stopped him on every
occasion. Ladysmlth next forced a
corner, but Wilson cleared ln grand
style. Cumberland came back strong
and Conti and company looked aa If
they meant to go right through, when
the Ladysmlth right-half deliberately
tripped Conti. Conti went back after
him, and knocked him down, and Referee Dawson ordered Conti to the
bench. Cumberland continued to play
well with ten men, but could not
equalize, and could not get through the
Ladysmith Btone-wall defense.   They
were still putting up a hopeless fight
when the whistle sounded for full
time.
Tbe Ladysmlth boys are to be com
plimentcd on their victory over Cumberland, as on the day's play they
proved , themselves the superior
team. Stewart, Wilson and Monahan
Bhowed up best for the losers.
"THE DANGEROUS AGE"
A SPECTACULAR
DRAMA.
A spectacular drama Is coming to
the Ilo-llo Theatre on first Saturday
for a 2-day engagement. It Is "The
Dangerous Age," a First National attraction produced by John M. Stahl.
It ls from the original by Frances Irene Reels.
Among the spectacular features Incorporated in the story are a thrilling
race between an automobile and a
train, culminating in a sensational
smash-up; a horse race staged especially by the producer with ten horB-
es and Jockeys from the Tin Juana
track In Mexico; a magnificent cafe
scene in which hundreds of beautiful
gowned women take part and ln which
was instilled all of the high-pitched
gayety, glamour and air of extravagance known to mark the famous old
Cafe de Paris, after which the set was
copied; and last, but vitally Important, a wedding scene that for beauty
Is said to surpass anything in the way
of a nuptial celebration ever before attempted for the screen.
While these events add greatly to the
Interest value of the film, the production's real strength lies In the human
Interest element of the story. As he
bas demonstrated In such past successes as "One Clear Call," "The Child
Thou Gavest Me" and "The Woman In
His House," Mr. Stahl Is a master
when it comes to picturing the touching phases of real dlfe, and in "The
Dangerous Age." with a big dramatic
theme for material, he has achieved
the greatest triumph of his career.
Lewis S. Stone is at the head of
the all-star cast assembled by Mr.
Stahl for this production.
JACKIE COOGAN BACK
AGAIN IN A KNOCKOUT.
Before you do anything else, make
a date with yourself to go and Bee
Jackie Coogan In "Trouble," his latest
First National picture, which Is show
ing Monday and Tuesday at Ilo-Ild
Theatre.
No matter whether you'vo seen
Jackie a hundred times heretofore,
you've never seen him as good as he
is in this one—and besides, it is a picture that, for sheer entertainment,
would be hard to match.
Imagine Jackie, who doesn't weigh
as much as a sack ot flour, trying a
lug a kit of heavy plumber's tools up a
stairway; and picture him further tying the bag to a wagon and luring the
old horse Into drawing it up for him
by waying a carrot under his nose.
Then follow Jackie to the scene ot
trouble, where he contrives to turn a
trickle into a flood by smashing the
water pipe he meant so earnestly to repair.
Let your imagination ramble again
to a situation where softhearted Jackleu
in an orphanage, whitewashes his little
black pal in the hope that somebody
will adopt him, only to find out that
the last available seekers of children
are a negro couple.
These are some of the comedy situation in this rather remarkable film,
but don't get the Idea that it is a hokum picture. Far from It! As a matter
ot fact, it is one of the best the screen
has seen In a long time. Jackie start off
a waif, ls returned to the orphanage,
then adopted hy a plumber und bis
wife and finally winds up as the ward
of the wife's parents on their farm.
You never saw better actlug than
Jackie does In a courtroom scene
where he appears as a witness against
his foster father, the plumber, and describes in pnntomine how tho man
beat his wife and then battled a policeman into submission, only to be felled
to earth by a flower pot accurately
aimed at his head by Jackie. The boy
rises to histrlanlc heights that few-
very few—Btars have ever attained,
and bis performance here will ever
stand ns a personal vindication for
him as an artist uninfluenced by his
mentor, Charlie Chaplin. Despite his
other very splendid characterizations,
Jackie's career may be said to start
with this picture "Trouble," for It is
here that the child shines forth unim-
peachably a star tn his own right.
Wallace Beery, as the heartless foster father, and Gloria Hope, as the
wife, head an exceptionally strong supporting cast gathered around the baby
artist. The picture was directed by
Alfred Austin, wbo was for many years
associated with Charlie Chaplin.

HEN FRUIT
A rooster had been born and brought up entirely
within his own chicken yard. Surrounded with more
wives than the ex-Sultan of Turkey, he felt no inclination to explore the outside world until one day a dog
got into the chicken yard and chased him.
He dived into a clump of weeds and unexpectedly
hit a hole in the fence and was free in a great open lot
that happened to be an ostrich farm.
Rooster-like, he strutted about the place until quite
by accident he discovered an ostrich egg.
To him it was a great revelation!
He rolled it back into his own yard and called his
harem about him.
"Girls," said he, "1 do not wish to be unkind. I
do not wish to cast any aspersions on the wonderful
work you have done, but I would like to call your attention to what they are doing in other places."
Now we claim to make Al electrical installations.
We adopt and adhere to the latest regulations, use only

your suggestion be feasible we will in the interests of

Manual Training;
Domestic Science
(Rev. W. Leversedge)
of this City have decided that the Curriculum ls incomplete until Manual
Training and Domestic Science are
made a part of the regular Instruction
How must they proceed ln order to
establish such Classes and make provisions therefor.
Clause 126a of the Public Schools
Act of this Province, reads as follows:
"Subject to the approval and regulator of the Council of Public Instruction, the Board of School Trustees ot any school district may establish and maintain technical schools or
courses for Instruction ln manual
training, domestic science, commercial
training, industrial training, agriculture, and the fine and applied arts;
such courses may be organized as day
or evening classes."
It would seem therefore that If the
Trusetees were assured of a general
desire for the establishment of such
courses ln this City that they would
almost as a matter of course proceed
with the necessary arrangements.
Next must be considered the quesstlon
of Cost, first as to Installation and
second as to Maintalnence.
In the case ot Cumberland It seems
necessary to assume that a new building would be necessary, as there are
no vacant rooms and no means of making provisions in the present buildings.
The cost of such building would of
course depend upon many factors but
I think we may assume a minimum a
cost of say $2,500, for the building, add
to this a further charge of $1,000 for
equipment for the two courses and you
have an initial expenditure of (3,500,
out of which the Department ot Education will pay not more than $500, or
one half the cost of equipment.
Mainteuence would require a further
charge of $2,700 for Teachers salaries
and the cost of the necessary materials
with the usual charges for light, heat,
etc.
If It were possible to work ln con-
Junction with Courtenay the cost of
teachers could be reduced to some extent, Bay two fiithB.
However in the opinion of the writer, the whole question of cost can anly
he rightly considered on the basis suggested In a former letter that ot Investment. In other words he believes
it would be a good Investment to provide (3000 as a Ilrst Investment and
a further annual investment or (1500
in order to provide what is at present
lacking in our local Educational system.
In conclusion I would like to suggest that the whole question be dis-
cusssed at a Public Meeting at some
time in the future, and a definite decision arrived at. I am sure that the
Parent Teacher organization would
gladly make all the necessary arrangements for such meeting, and tbat the
School Trustees would welcome a full
and tree dlscusssion of the question.
OBSERVATIONS OF A
FEDERAL MEMBER
Feb. 19th.—House passed resolution
In favor of alternative vote in single
member constituencies. Where more
than two candidates run in a single
member district, the voter will not
mark his ballot with an X but place
the figures 1. 2. and 3 opposite the
candidate's names in the order of his
prefernece for them. On the first
count only the names which have been
marked—1—are counted. If any candidate haB a majority of the total
votes cast he ls declared elected. If the
highest candidate has not a majority,
then the lowest candidate drops out
and the ballots on which his   name
marked are recounted and   those
marked with a —2— are credited to
the other candidates. On the second
count, one or other of the two remaining candidate must have a majority of
the total vote cast. This ensures that
the elected member really represents
the majority of the electors ot his district whereas now many members nre
elected ln a three cornered fight by less
than a majority of the electors.
Feb. 21st.—Bill to amend Immigration Act introduced by Neill (Comox-
Alberni). By giving general and complete powers of exclusion to Minister
ot Immigration, makes it possible to
exclude Orientals without mentioning
them by name which has been the
stumbling block of previous exclusion Acts. Showed how Act had been
a success In New Zealand.
The Minister of Immigration somewhat feebly opposed the bill saying he
was to bring down next week a bill
dealing with Chinese Immigration
which might bo better than this bill
but did not explain how his bill which
admittedly will deal with Chinese,
would meet the situation as to Japanese!
Ono member ln opposing the bill
showed that he had not read It and

another based hie objection on one
section of the bill, refusing to read the
following section which met his objection.
The bill was supported by Mr. McQuarrte, Conservative member for
New Westminster, Mr. Ladner, Conservative member for Vancouver
South, and Hon. H. H. Stevens, Conservative member for Vancouver Centre, who was speaking when the
House rose cutting off the debate for
at least two weeks. Motion to have
the working of Civil Service Act referred to a Committee for investigation
and report, carried hy a majority of
37.
Feb. 26th.—Whole day wasted In
academic discussion of theoretical
discussions.
Feb. 27th.—On discussion of estimates for Pensions, etc, Neill urged
that the law be amended to provide for
an appeal before a Supreme Court
Judge tor any soldiers dissatisfied
with the decision of Pension Board,
pointing out, tbat while there is now
an Appeal Board, it was composed ot
Doctors who are not the best Judges
of how to weigh evidence and that
there was at present a method by
which the Pension Board could to a
very large extent, block any appeal
against their decision.

VICTORIA.—The now famous settlers' rights question in connection
with which the present provincial Liberal administration in 1917 and 1919
passesd legislation allowing original
settlers in the E. and N. Railway belt
to secure valuable coal holdings, le
glslatlon which was subsequently (lis
allowed by the then Conservative administration in the Dominion, will
again come before the federal author
Itles when Hon. William Sloan, minister of mines, reaches Ottawa.
Mr. Sloan has left for the capital,
and he will be away three weeks or a
month. It will be his endeavor, now
that a Liberal and friendly administration Is In power at Ottawa, to secure
consent to a bill to be brought down
at the next session of the Provincial
Legislature granting the right to pioneer settlers ln the railway belt to put
in claims for title to properties which
are chiefly located ln the coal belt.

Mr. Sloan will also discuss provincial control ot Pacific fisheries while

long range administration from Ottawa is not worklnc out to the best advantage of the Industry.
He will take up the question of a

will put through a provincial tax at
