Errors Against
Local Baseballers
Some peculiar Influence sneaked Into the gloves of "Toots" Plumps'
pets last Sunday before their league
baseball game with the Itoyston Lumber Co. team and succeeded In making an impression there lo the extent
of Just ti dozen errors. Anyway Cumberland won the game 14-7, copped
Ihe points and advanced another step
towards the glistening silverware
that may yet, let's hope, be theirs.
It was a miserable display the locals
put up as far as their fielding was
concerned.
Dazzling Sim
Old King Sol reigned supreme, and
took a prominent position over the
field and dazzled the outfielders wltll
his dazzling countenance overhead.

Community Loyalty
Have you ever stopped to consider the fact that loyalty (o
community interests is the highest form of patriotism? Show
us the man who is loyal and true to every interest of his own
community aud we will show you in that same individual a
man in whom bis country can report absolute confidence in any
emergency that calls for his allegiance.
On tbe other hand, the man who is careless and unconcerned for the interests of his community is most apt to display the
same sprit of Indifference toward his government or his state
should any serious danger threaten either.
Try to imagine an entire state composed of innumerable
communities welded and cemented into a symmetrical whole,
each striving to excel the others, hut each, from its own local
loyalty, developing a broader and deeper loyalty that reaches
out and embraces the whole.
This would he brought about if we could be brought to see
that we owe allegiance to our own people,but that the prosperity and success of others is in no wise a detriment to us,
but rather a help, that if each community would develop itself
to tbe utmost—materially, mentally and morally—none would
need to be envious of others, neither would any need do aught
but to detract from another's interest.    "
|] Let us develop community loyalty to tbe full—the highest
M        possible form of patriotism.

To Grocery Store
Carpenters have been busy during
tbe past week re-modelling the window section of Mutt Brown's Grocery
store. Formerly this part was walled in so that anyone looking in the
window could only see the window

store. Now, Matt has had this remedied by taking down tbe old partition and substituting a low one in
its place, the latter being stained an
appropriate oak color.
This not only makes the store lighter and more airy, but it. affords patrons a chance to see from tbe outside the up-to-date system of doing
business that has built up for .Matt

pleasant store in Cumberland in
which to do business.

COURTENAY, Courtenay has been
the only town of any consequence on

ilic evening a grand boxing tournament will be staged, the principals in
the main event being Roy Cliffe. a
native son of the Valley and Ernie

of the Native Sons and Daughters of
Courtenay, and in fact of the whole

Any honest business man can command courtesy, square dealing, unquestionable values and prompt delivery, and all honest people who
trade with you have a right to demand these four things. If your
store or business is not giving these,
don t blame the trade for drifting
away from you.
Look well to the "good will" of your
business. Once lost it can never be
regained.

GOOD WILL
A country newspaper was recently
sold for SS.fino more thon the Inventory showed to be the value of Ihe
printing plant. The $3,000 was credited to "good will." that Intangible
something ln business which is of
more value than the balance In your
bank.
Two business houses with practically the same stock and equally good
locations may differ widely in a year's
profit.. One may succeed and the
other fail. The factor thai led to
success was largely the matter of
"good will". And the thing thut creates "good will" is honest service.
You may lose your money and In
time get it back again. Hut if you
lose your "good will" you are bankrupt indeed.
"Good wlll" Is a sensitive tiling.
We have seen it talked to death by
an otherwise good business man who
wore his customers oul telling the
secrets of his business alio* a lol of
other things in which they were not
interested. We have seen it driven
from a store by a gruff and surly proprietor who met customers with an
oath and a frown. We have seen it
lost by the foolish business man who
thought it was shrewd to substitute
an Inferior article for the one his
patron asked for. But most of all
we have seen "good will" scattered to
the winds by uncivil, inattentive aud
careless salespeople. What good can
it do a wise merchant to lay in honest stock, make reasonable prices and
invite the public to trade at his store
through well-prepared advertising, If
his sales people insult, neglect aud
are inattentive to the customers when
they come? If the average clerk In
the average store could only realize
how  much    his    Individual
With the return of summer comes
tho  longing to be a  boy again and |
I you'll find the staid old business man I
I playing hookey  if  he  get a chance, i
I With tbe bright warm afternoons you ;
i will find many a roll-top desk closed j
j clown  and many  an  olllce chair va- j
cant while tbe head of tbe business
slips away to tbe golf links or the '
baseball  grounds.      A  disappointed ]
or impatient customer may storm u j
little about neglecting business,  but |
it really doesn't amount to anything,
when you stop and think how short
a time the truant will be In charge of
his particular business.
The spirit of the boy    that   still j
dwells in the stiffening body and dimming eyes of the staid old business i
man  Is really the only    thing    that j
counts.     That is why he joins a club
that calls thc roll to the nickname of
his boyhood.     That is why he goes to
ihe golf grounds and seeks in vain ■
for the pop and enthusiasm that he
bad in the bygone days when he played shinny on the buck lot.     That Is
why he goes out to the baseball park
and  thrills at  the crack of the bat
when Babe Ruth knocks out a homo
run,  recalling  the    days    when    his
gang   beat  the  visiting  team  on  the
home diamond.
Yen. verily, you bald-headed, stifi-
Jolnted old collector of coins, that
spirit of boyhood is the only real
thing left in you that's worth cultivating. Aud the wife who is wise
will smile when her boy comes home
late to supper because the ball game
went all extra inning or the caddy
couldn't find the bnll lost in the rough.
Don't scold Uie poor old chap when
he comes home after playing truant
with tbe spirit ot his boyhood. He
will work harder and be less irritable tomorrow ror his afternoon off
today.

The advertising "game"   is   more
and more becoming the telling factor,  =
(he barometer if you please for find
ing the business pulse of a communl-I —
ly in general. Along with tidy streets ' _§■
and well kept business houses, should  \w
go the well filled advertising columns
of   the   local   newspaper.      No   local
community can  reach a high degree
of prosperity without the local news-;
paper, as likewise no local newspaper !
can experience true prosperity without the co-operation of tbe prosperous business people of the community.
Advertising  systematically  and  persistently followed shows real value in
the increased  sales  of any  business
house.
Recently a friend and patron of
The Islander, who annually lias a task
requiring publicity, asked the man-'
agenient to make a news item showing
just what he was going In do in his
office. This service was freely and
gladly given. The patron complacent- ,
ly remarked. "You have no idea
how those little items help. Wc are
always busy the next morning after
you make such an item."
The  Idea  of   the  needed   publicity,
was not new or strange to us, be-'
cause publishers know the mission of
their columns and what they will accomplish.     Ask any newspaper worker who has inadvertently made an er-.
ror or misstatement.     Ile is immediately prodded  and Jibed    and    kept
busy   explaining   for  days   to   come,
even   though   the   error  covers   only
two lines ln print.
Oh yes,  we  newspaper people  are ;
well aware that advertising—the commodity we have to sell—is effective.
When business concerns who do not
advertise, or who advertise spasmod-1
Ically, wake up to the sales-building,
power of a dellnite newspaper advertising policy,  we  will have a better I
community.

LONG before the paleface came
to the broad and rolling
prairies, the Red man knew
and appreciated the curative properties of Little Luke Manitou.
which is located near Watrous,
Saskatchewan, on the main line of
the Canadian National Railways.
And the first white settlers who
came, in advance of the railways.
to settle on their homesteads in
and around Watrous, soon leoYned
of this lake with its highly mineralized waters, so that Little Lake
Manitou had its reputation made
when the first settlers reached the
country.
Today thousands of residents nf
prairie cities find Little Lake Manitou an  ideal watering place, and
excursions are run from time to
time over the Canadian National
Railways from Saskatoon and
other cities to provide citizens with
a means of reaching this delightful spot.
The waters of Little Lake Manitou are so highly mineralized that
tho swimmer finds no difficulty in
floating on their surface and at the
same time their mineral qualities
nre health-giving in their action.
With a good sandy beach for the
kiddies to play on, and water
chutes and other enjoyment features erected for their entertainment, Little Lake Manitou has become the ideal picnic spot for the
dwellers in the central region of
Saskatchewan.

ABOUT GETTING
THINGS DONE
"We're looking for an admonitory
BOntence of a few words to use as a
slogan during the coming year," said
a newly-appointed chairman of a directing body to a friend, "can you
make a suggestion?"
The slogan that was suggested was.
"(Jet tilings done."
Get things done now. aud if nol
now, as soon after now as energetic,
concentrated effort will permit.
Procrastination has boon spoken of
as the thief of time. Tardy performance is probably responsible for
more actual loss than error in performance.
Hours a day of thousands of employees are wasted by those who wait
upon the action of a few who do not
get things done.
These wasted hours melted into lhe
cost of production, so raise price of
product that those who do get tilings
done have au enormous advantage in
competition.
The more important a man's position, the more important is it that
ho "gpts things done." And any and
all will, I think, admit, Ihat 11 is a
good slogan to hang in any office,
factory or print-shop. It might not
be a bad slogan to bang up in the
home.— The Ambassador.
SHEAK WITTICISMS
WHY WAIT!
She—"Are you saving money for the
rainy day?"
He—"I'm not," was the reply, "so
far as I'm concerned it's raining now.'

Comox Electoral District
Paul Phillipps Harrison
BAtUilSTF.lt- AT-LAW
Cumberland, B.C.
Independent- Liberal
Candidate
Election of the Year A.D., 1924
To
the Electors of
Comox Electoral District
greeting:
This pamphlet is issued under authority of the
several District Committees composed of local citizens,
many of whom belong to different political parties, but
are now unanimous in their desire to ensure the election of Mr. Paul Phillipps Harrison, of Cumberland,
B.C., Barrister-at-law, the Independent-Liberal Candidate.
The word "Independent" indicates absolute freedom from the rule of the Rubber-stamp Brigade.
The word "Liberal" refers to no particular party,
but denotes the principle of re-modelling and enacting
laws to meet promptly the radical changes which from
time to time occur in the economic and social status of
organized society as opposed to the ultra-conservative
or reactionary principle of remaining stationary and
only enacting legislation to meet such radical changes
at the last moment when forced to do so by political
pressure exerted by organized laDor, or for some other
like reason.
To those who reside in the more remote parts of
the district and who are not personally acquainted
with our Candidate, we may say that he was born in
Victoria, B.C., some 43 years ago, and is the eldest son
of His Honor Judge Harrison, now retired, who for
some 35 years occupied the Bench for two Counties "on
the Mainland, and in later years for the County of
Nanaimo. Mr. P. P. Harrison nas resided with his
family at Cumberland, B.C., and practised law there,
for the past 18 years.
We are supporting him in his candidature for the
lollowing reasons:
1. During the past 18 years we have on many
occasions experienced convincing proof of his broad-
minded attitude in politics, combined witn a most commendable independence of spirit, and the ability to
make a determined light for anything that he is advocating or supporting.
2. That he has always been strongly opposed to
Oriental immigration into Canada.
3. That his entire legal practice is with the general public, such as miners, farmers, fishers, loggers,
merchants, etc.. and he does not serve any interest or
class in particular, we therefore are assured that if
he represents us in Parliament he will not be prejudiced in favor of any particular interest or class.
4. That as his entire legal business depends upon
his retaining the people's confidence, it is to his interest,
to give them proper representation in Parliament.
5. That he has not accepted and will not accept
funds for his campaign from any Party. Association,
or the like, in short, lie is financing the whole of his
campaign with his personal funds. We doubt if any
olher Candidate in this Field is doing this.
(i. We are entirely in accord with Mr. Harrison's
running as an Independent-Liberal and in his view that
if he were to do otherwise he would put himself in the
position of practically saying that he is satisfied that
the Government has accorded our District the consideration to which it is entitled, while as a matter of
fact we feel that they have, in many instances, failed
to do so. It is our experience, covering a period of
many years, that Political Parties, become nothing better than 'Political Machines' whereby its members who
are elected on a straight party ticket, uphold their
Part}' even when they arc acting contrary to the interests of the people, thus constituting the infamous
'Rubber-stamp Brigade,' every member of which is
completely subservient to the dictates of the Party
Bosses, particularly as such members are individually
under obligation lo their Party, lor funds to carry on
their campaign. This condition of affairs can only be
remedied or at least ameliorated by our persisting in
placing the interests of the District before that of any
Party as we are doing in this case,
Mr. Harrison will refrain from making wild promises for the purpose of catching votes.
He has agreed with us lo make a most careful investigation into the complaints of Timber Operators
regarding the present Royalty on logs; And also the
question of an embargo ou the exportation of logs,
and if the facts fully warrant it, he will advocate and
support any equitable measure which can be adopted to
meet the situation in a way satisfactory to all concerned. And a like enquiry into the matter of the
present system of repairing and maintaining public
roads, ditches and culverts, in order to ascertain if a
reasonable scheme can be worked out whereby the
farmers can obtain a fair share of employment in that
connection, particularly during the slack months in
farming operations and thus enable them to meet their
taxes.
Also amendment to the Poll-tax Act, so that the
collection of such tax will not be made from any person
liable to pay the same, until such person has resided a
reasonable time within the place where it is sought
to collect the tax.
Also the filling of local Government positions by
local people, where competent, instead of the present
method quite often adopted of giving the same to persons who reside elsewhere and hnve no stake or interest in the District. »
Mr. Harrison is also strongly in favor of the principle of Recall by the people of any Member of Parliament whom they may feel is not giving them proper
and adequate representation and will give liis support
to any legislation of that character, which contains

For more than a year the one

photodrama—the    completion    O'f    a
classic which would surpass everything previously attempted, not only

other.
Thut this bas been done is the unanimous verdict of those fortunate
enough to view it, and these same
critics admit most freely that it even

Accordingly, the best character actor of the day was secured for the
part of "Quasimodo," Mr. Lon Chancey
and no expense was spared in the
making—the total cost of the completed production being over a million and a quarter dollars. A cast
of principals was then engaged whicli

a half million dollars, and there  is !
every   reason   to   believe  that   when

Women Fall

screen actress, narrowly escaped
drowning recently when the trestle
over whicli they were running, gave
way just an Instant before tbey could
leap for safety.
Only the efforts of men nearby
saved them from death . As it was,
Ihey had a dip in the icy swirling pool
of water.
"Lttcretia Lombard," the successful
novel by Kathleen Norris, was being
filmed, and Producer Harry Rapt
had constructed a veritable forest
through which runs a long railroad
trestle about 150 feet long. Down
this trestle came Irene Rich and
Norma Shearer to escape the raging
lire. It was just twenty feet from
the edge of the forest that the mishap occurred. A crash, and zip, the
two flgures dropped like a plummet
Into the cold waters! Eddie Sutherland and Kenneth Hawks, assisting
Director Jack Conway rushed to help,
and bore out the two ladles.
The scene as finally completed Is
said to be one of thc most vividly
realistic ever filmed.
"Lucretla Lombard" is a Warner
Brothers classic of the screen and
will play at the Ilo-llo Theatre Friday and Saturday. It abounds In
strong characterizations. Irene Rich
nnd Monte Blue are co-starred, with
a supporting cast made up of Marc

and Norma Shearer.

Practical, Durable, Always Ready on Land, Under
Water, Any Climate, Anywhere
The Electro Automate Is an Electric Lamp made iu France without a battery or refills, and of a new conception. It is a perfect
machine; the result of ,iears of test in the plants of the manufacturers In Switzerland and France :: This marvellous little
pocket lamp, embodying simplicity, reliability and compactness,
weighs only 12 ounces.     It ls patented in all countries.
The dynamo, with permanent magnet, based on now methods,
gives dense magnetic fields of perfect concentration, whicli surrounds the induction without loss ot magnetic dispersion, ami
permits the maximum exploitation of the energy,
Construction of these lamps is very carefully carried out by
skilled Swiss clock and scientific instrument makers :: Electro
Automate Lamps are tight and dust-proof. They can be useil
In all climates, including equatorial regions. Tbey will everywhere render the utmost service, giving a clear white light, without fear of the bulb burning out or tlio generator booming
warm.
All Blectro Automate Lamps are guaranteed for six months, conditionally that they are not tampered with. With reasonable
care they will last for years. Any part can be renewed at slight
cost.     Lamps are provided with a pocket for extra bulbs.
This lamp Is especially useful to travellers, tourists, marine and
mining engineers, automohlllsts, dairymen, in fact everybody.
They are indispensable on life-boats and rafts, where a light Is
needed that will not be extinguished by wind or wave :: Kvery
mine Bhould be provided with one or more of these lamps at its
portal or entrance, for the convenience of the employee or official
whose work lakes him in and out of the mine at irregular intervals. It is the cheapest anil best light on the market for this
purpose :: Marine engineers welcome Electro Automate in their
engine room. It saves them from the annoyance and loss of
lime occasioned hy tht unreliability of battery lamps when they
wish to locate trouble or iind something in a hurry :: Pilots are
favorable to these little lamps because tbey are always standing
by ready and able to do their part in any and all kinds of
weather.' They are hardy little fellows and will stand any
amount of knocking about, even to the bulbs, which are superior
to any others on the market:: Mushers over the northern trails
take these lamps in preference to others, because they give a
never ending light and add less than a pound of weight to their
outfits. The winds can't blow them out and Pie snow or wet can
not short circuit them.
DIBEOTIONS
The working of this self-generating lamp is ver.y simple. Pull the
lever completely and sharply with the lingers and let go, allowing
It to open fully in order to take another (nil stroke. Strokes
should be even and sharp lor best results. This lamp is the
only one of Its weight that will give a perfect light. The hearings of this lamp should be oiled about once a month.

could  he driven,  by a succession of
pin pricks ami insults, into Quitting,
this would he a warning to other railroad men. big enough for the job, to
have nothing to do with the Canadian
National Railway, The management
oi' the road would then inevitably deteriorate: it would become the sport
and prey of politicians; and there
would follow rapid disintegration ami
Ultimate collapse. This is what some
of our Canadian "patriots" want; and
they will work unceasingly and un-
: crupuloiiKly to bring it about. The
more Sir Henry Thornton succeeds,
the more determined they will be in
their assaults upon him.
It is in Parliament, of course, that
the  most dangerous    and    annoying
jabs   of   the   pin-pricking   campaign
can be delivered; because there they
can be screened hy an appearance of
devotion to the public interest.     The
road is the property of Canadian people;   Parliament represents the  people: why, then, should not Parliament
supervise, investigate and control the
administration of thc railway?   There
is a surface appearance of validity to
the argument.     It is natural for members  of  the  opposition   to  exagerate
their rights of investigation and supervision;   and.  even   when  their motives are quite disinterested, they can
j tie too easily influenced to courses injurious to the railway.     In the last
I Parliament  Mr.  Fielding,  being then
fin opposition, seriously proposed that
j Ilie  whole Canadian  National budget
j should   be   voted,   item   by   Item,   by
1 Parliament, basing his demand  upon
(lie supreme  right of   Parliament to
control  public  moneys.      Mr,  Fielding should  have known  better  than
to urge so preposterous a course, nothing  was heard about  his  proposal
once he became a member of the Gov-
ernmnet.      But   here   is   Sir   Henry
/•Drayton, who is an ex-Finance Minister and Mr. Meighen's (irst lieutenant in the Commons, making an equally   absurd   and   dangerous   proposal.
Kir Henry has a resolution before Parliament which reads thus:
"Tliat. in tho opinion of this House,
a select standing committee on National Railways and Shipping should
be appointed, and that to said cofal-
mittee ahould lie referred the estimates for the Canadian National Railway system and for the Mercantile
Marine, and all questions involving
new capital commitment and the disposition of properties and assets, and
that as well to said committee should
be referred during each session the
annual reports of the said system aud
.Mercantile Marine for such enquiry as
may be exercised hy, and with such
powers of enquiry, as are possessed
by the select standing committee on
public accounts with relation to the
auditor general's report. And further, that said committee should be
entrusted to make recommendations
to this House as to what further. II
any, details or improvement of method should appear in said annual reports.
If the Canadian National Railway is
to become a mere department of the
Government, with all its officials
ranking as civil servants there can
be no objection to the proposed procedure; but it has been the policy of
the country, with the hearty approval
of (lie great mass of the people, to
operate the railway on the basis of a
corporation with a minimum of political interference. Sir Henry Drayton's proposal to have a Parliamentary committee, armed with the inquisitorial powers of the public accounts,
go yearly into all the details of th?
operation, would bring the whole system into politics and make it the football of contending parties. The effect would he to destroy the discipline,
the morale of the servfee, and initiative; and rapidly turn the Canadian
National Railway into a decaying ami
dying organization. Our parties have
got to keep their hands off the Canadian National Railway or they will
destroy it; and it is only the manifestation of vigorous public opinion
that will restrain them.
It is, of course, true that there is
in the organization of the Canadian
National Railway a defect which
needs remedying. If the analogy cf
the corporation is to he maintained
thc shareholders of the company, who
are the people of Canada, ought to
have some means hy whicli they can
create a directorate which will, on
purely business Hues, control policy
and select the higher olllcials. Parliament cannot function successfully
as thai directorate; and the appointments of the directors, as a political
act, by tiie government of the day is
only one degree less objectionable
There is here a great and serious problem; and Parliament would he much
more profitably employed in trying
to solve it than in devising means by
which it can meddle with the working of the railway system, which is
something it cannot be expected to
understand.—Au Editorial from The

The ordinary way to measure distance is by miles.
You think any place you have in mind is so many
miles away. It seems a long way off. Look at it another
way. Measure the distance by minutes. Say to
yourself, "Such and such a place is so many minutes
away," meaning, of course, that if the telephone is
used distance does not need to be considered.
If you want to talk to u friend or discuss a business matter, no place is very far away, Not only that,
but the means of communication is always right at
hand. Every telephone is a long distance telephone.
Besides, if you talk in the evening, you can take advantage of the special rates.

In Billy's job, as in many positions where men nave won tame tnd
distinction, it is personality that counts. It is his mission in lift
to inspire confidence, and to lure innocent sheep and lamps to their
destruction with as great alacrity and lightness of gait as If they
were skipping to the fields of Elysium, and this he does to the King's
taste; he was born for his task. Though but two years old he has a
substantial beard, and long white hoary locks, His mien is gentle
and there are no horns visible which might give rise to fatal suspicions. But in his eyes there is an air of command, backed by th*
fore, of a portly frame, which enables Billy to do what he will with
tha sheep and lambs which come within his ken, and even influences
calves to keep a straight path. In the busy season he saves tha
salaries of five men; in ordinary times ht does the work of two
or three.
He was three months old when he arrived at the Canadian Pacific
Stock Yards, Montreal, but he took to the work at once. He followed
the heels of the men, and while other animals tried at the work had
to be coaxed to labor by rewards of cake and biscuits, Billy needed
no such spur, but in three months time would glance at the sheep
comfortably, start off at a cheertul trol and without hesitation the
doomed animals would surround him and happily ascend the winding
runway to the abattoir nearby. Then at a command he would go
back and coax anv stragglers, till he had all at hand ready to be
slaughtered.
Now to look at Billy, it might seem that he did this work In all
Innocence, and that he was quite unaware that he had led his charges
to any harm; but that would be doing an injustice to Billy's mighty
intellect. He leads the flock right to the edge of the platform where
they ars killed but then he carefully edges to the wall, keeping as
far al possihle from the danger point till he reaches the only spot
of safety, then he slides back from the helpless sheep wriggles out
tnd goes back for another lot.
His treachery does not weigh on his spirits, he Is utterly com*
sltcam tnd .elf-satisfied, Impatient to be on tht job.

-ccompaniod by Cnpt. Pales, gave nn
uddress in the old hall on Wednesday evening. The attendance was
very gootl indeed. Mr. M. llell-Ir-
•fng wan chairman and Introduce I
the candidate who gave a brief history of his early life in coining to
tliy country. He said we must havo
confidence iu our man and party. Wc
should not Invest our money in wh-'U
wc considered an unsafe investment,
Mr. Clayton gave rather a lengthy ad-
tlrosH and touched on several vital
points such as the P.O.E. railroad,
which has been a while elephant to '
more than ono political party) also
he spoke of the enormous dehl under i
which wc are .staggering. lu 11114
thc debt was LS million dollars; lo- j
day It has reached the enormous sum
of 113 millions. lie also read some
very Interesting correspondence from
a prominent politician. Mr. Clayton
acknowledged that he had employed
Chinamen on his farm anil thought a
veiy good way to get rid of these obnoxious foreigners was to give them
th" same remuneration as a white
man. ln such a case every one prefers nn English speaking man and
before long the "heathen Chinaman'
would of his own accord "seek pas-
lures new." The speaker drew attention to Ihe nil embracing plank
number 111—Irrigation. Tliat hardly
applies, here was Mr. Clayton's comment, where upon a voice in the audience called out "I wish 1 had it here
right now." The candidate admitted
his potaloes. too. needed ruin. After
some more remarks the chairman
called Capt. Bates, the candidate's
business manager, who told of Mr.
Clayton refusing to take his present
stand, preferring them to find a better
man, but for honest, integrity, and
general ability there could be no fitter man found and so Mr. Clayton at
last consented. The chairman gave
the origin of the Provincial Party,
who were a number of farmers from
the upper country who had banded
themselves together and come to Vancouver determined to clean out the
present wasteful government. He
strongly endorsed Major A. D. Mc-
Rae's credentials and his ability to he I
the leader of the party. He, tho,
Major, had saved the government millions of dollars in the last war. If
the present government were return- •
ed it would only be a short time before we were in the hands of the receiver. He begged for thc sake of,
the kiddies that when they grew up It
would not be milestones hung around
elr necks.     Several questions from !
the audience were asked: Would Mr.,
Clayton be willing to have the farm- |
er's taxes reduced?      Certainly, wns
the   reply.      The   Provincial   Party's
motto was honesty, economy and efficiency.     Would you advise trying to
finish   the    P.O.E.    Railway?      Tho |
speaker replied lie was unable to sa..
until   everything  hnd   beeu   thrashed
out.    After some more questions had
been asked and answered intelligently,   Mr.  Bell-Irving  proposed  a  vole
of thanks to the two gentlemen. This i
was   heartily   given.      The   national
anthem was sung and the meeting ad-1
journed.
The next day Mr. Clayton and his
manager joiirnlod tn Cumberland and
invited all those who could manage to
go to bear two specially good speakers wlio were to lie iu the little mining town thut night.

Sloan Sues McRae For $50,000
 .
NANAIMO, June 9.—Claiming damages or $50,000 for an alleged tibel
contained in the Third Party publication, "The Searchlight, No. 8," Hon.
William Sloan. Minister of Mines, and
Liberal candidate in Nanaimo in tbe
present provincial contest, issued a
writ this morning against General
Alexander Duncan McRae, leader o£
the so-called Provincial Party.
This action was the outcome of tbe
Minister's recent statement tliat he
proposed to sue the Third Party's bead
for statements made by him.
The writ, issued through the linn
of Messrs.  Lelghton &  Meakin, Bats
forth:   "Tbe   plaintiff   claims   $50,000
damages for libelous statements published  by  the  Defendant, or hy the
authority of. or at the instigation of,
or  with   the   knowledge,   connivance
and assistance of lhe defendant.   Tin-
said  libel was published at tbe city
of Vancouver, British Columbia, in or
about   tbe   month   of   January.   A.D..
1924, in a pamphlet    entitled    "The
Searchlight, No. 8," under the heading
'a petition for a Royal Commission.'
j    The filing of the writ against the
j bead of the so-called Provincial Party
t is no surprise.     Hon. Mr. Sloan made
it clear in recent addresses to his constituent's that be would hail the "General" before the courts to account for
j bis   (the  General's)   accusations  that
! the  Minister  of  Mines  bad  received
campaign funds from P. G. E. Inter-
I ests.
The Minister was given a sweeping exoneration by the recent Royal
Commission; bis integrity was fully
established, and now General McRae
must answer in tbe courts for his
unbalanced and uncalled for attacks
upon a man who, through thick and
thin, has been a consistent supporter
of the interests of the working man
of Nanaimo.

Your Family
A mother and children bereft of home is life's most
pitiful drama.
It is enacted all too often because life insurance
had not been provided.
Government statistics show that "ninety-five per
cent of men at age sixty are dependent" Other men
die without leaving anything for the support of their
families.
Life insurance has been evolved so that a man may
arrange his life's program to provide for his family.
It is scientific, safe and sound.
Have your wife and children sufficient life insurance protection ?
Let the Dominion Life take care of your dependents.

Six More Days
To Decide Fight
Profits from tbe sale of liquor in
B.C. for the last six months have
broken all previous records since the
Liquor Control Act came into force.
Net profits for the six months from
Oct. 1. 1924 to March 31, 1924,
amounted to $1,034,001,70, making a
total of $7,135,520 for the last 13
months.
After one-half of this sum goes to
the credit of the consolidated revenue
fund and $81,730 is deducted for the
reserve fund, $7711,435 is retained by
tbe government and a like amount is
divided among the municinalitus.
$543,605 goes direct to the municipalities and the remainder, $232,030, is
paid to hospitals and charities.
Following are the amounts divided
among local communities:

The most, momentous election in the
history of British Columbia will be
mother week or ten days,
nd with tiie campaign warmed tip to
a hot pitch the electors are paying
more and more attention to the issues at stake. Never before have so
many candidates been in the field.
Premier Oliver has rallied strong
support for his business policy, the
freight rates issue taking lirst place.
Even prominent oppositionists in Vancouver and Victoria have pledged him
their support, purely because of the
freight rates fight.
The comment is beard on Conservative and Provincial party platforms
that the Oliver government has done
nothing, It is perhaps only fair to
point to tbe comprehensive plans
now in the hands of the administration. Included ure: Highway extensions, including the Trnusprovin-
olal; educational survey; University
construction; freight rates; comprehensive social legislation; eight-hour
law; colonization; aid to mining development. Sucb a program, already
partly carried out, appeals strongly
to the public, so strongly that there
appears little doubt but that the government will be sent back to office
With a clean-cut majority.

Let Us face the facts. Let each of
us check Up on onr own short-comings and each decide to never again,
hy word or act, he guilty of disloyalty
to our town or an unconscious traitor to our own best interests.
Perhaps there aro those of us who
do no! fully realize how our seeming
little acts are a violation of-loyalty,—
and finally direct blow against our
own personal interests. Let us illustrate.
There is no selfish motive in the
aim. If we make Cumberland a better town—and a more prosperous
town which, through industrial and
commercial needs will attract new
people, then all will reap prosperity,
the new comers as well as we of our
loyal  family  who built it up.
Thc method of achieving this is a
simple one. All we have to do Is
throw all of our resources into home
affairs. These resources include ull
Of our buying and selling—pleasures
and amusements, as well aa needed
material things. Increased business
means more money in circulation-
all of which in turn is thrown right

more work and better wages.

SINCE the first of May a very
fine lot of cattle have been
passing through the stockyards at Winnipeg. These show
the result of intensive feeding they
received during the winter, and the
large number of cattle recently
coining forward indicate that western farmers hnve greatly enlarged
their winter feeding operations
over what prevailed two or three
years ago. In order to encourage
this business the railways last fall
reduced the freight rates on feeder
cattle taken out from the stockyards to the country to one-half the
regular rates, and the co-operative
