Revelations of Prominent
French Military Writer
Cause Great Sensation
(Special Despatch to The Islander.)
Paris, Oct. 17.—The exposures of the relations between the British and the
French high military commands aud the respective governments, which appear
in extracts from the forthcoming book of Commandant De Civrteux, the noted
French military writer, which-were made public today, have created a great
sensation.
Tiie revelations deal chiefly with the Calais conference in February of 1917,
when tlie lirst attempt was made to unify the Allied command, and also with the
failure of subsequent Allied offensives, the British at Arras and the French In
Champagne.
The Calais conference was signed by Premier Lloyd George, which recognized the general direction belonged to the French commander-in-chief, Gen.
Neville. Friction and misunderstanding followed, says the writer, who accuses
Lord Haig of evading orders.

Cumberland is without a police magistrate, Mr. Alex. McKinnon, who for some time had held this position, has resigned, and
the government has not seen fit to appoint a man in his place. The
people of Cumberland are beginning to ask themselves "What is
the matter?"
About the first of September the City Council sent to the attorney-general at Victoria an application for the appointment of Aid.
Thomson, who was the nominee ior the position by the civic body,
but Hon. Mr. Farris has not yet deigned to make any reply.
Now the City Council is up in arms and they intend to push the
matter to the limit. They feel they are the best judges as to what
the community wants under such circumstances and they are
making a move to come to a showdown with the attorney-general.
It is hinted by some citizens that the reason for the delay can
be traced to the desire of the government to appoint a man who is
more to their liking than is the nominee of the City Council, and
that the attorney-general is doing his best to give the position to
a faithful supporter of the government, thus handing out a reward
for services rendered to a political party.
The City Council, however, does not intend that they shall be
ignored in the making of the appointment, and at the meeting on
Tuesday night the city clerk was instructed to write the attorney-
general and remind him of the application already sent him.
It is stated on good authority that if a satisfactory reply is not
received within a reasonable lime the council will clear their decks
for action and a regular bombardment opened.
At the present time the city is practically without the proper
authority to administer the law, Mr. McKinnon resigned because
he could not-devote his time to the position, and although pressed
to continue until his successor is appointed, he has declined lo act
any longer, and the city has therefore no magistrate.
Interesting developments may be looked for in the near future.

October 18,1919.
SOCIAL and
PERSONAL
A correspondent wrltlnig from New
York gives an interesting account of
the vistl of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth of Belgium.
!n striking contrast with the cloth
ins the queen has worn since coming
to New York she appeared in a costume
rivalling the autumn woods. Thc shim
mer of an old gold silk dress gleamed
from under her russet punne velvet
cloak. Old gold flowers clustered
around her brown velvet turban. She
wore rich sables and a rope of pearls
And though slight and delicate, she
gave ilie Impression of being every
Inch tin- queen nf fairy ta4e and
legend.
Mora is a firmly moulded face, which
betrays an odd mingling of strength
ami sweetness. Her nose Is uqueline
and her eyes are of a clear, far-seeing
him'. When tired, the shadow of sad
things lies behind them, bitter memories, the pain of things not easily
forgotten.
Strained lines told 'further of the
agony of Belgium as seen through
the eyes of its queen. Hut her broad,
generous smile dispelled tlie hint of
sadness and made her face pleasant to
look upon.

ROBERTS AND
ROSS AGAIN
Vnncouver  Boxer  Believes  lie  Can
Turn the Tables on the Man
From Merville.
Ross of Vancouver, who was defeated by Roberts of Merville in their
bout here in September, believes he can
reverse tho decision If given an opportunity, and arrangements are being
made to gratify his desire. Messrs. J.
D. Davis and Robt. Brown have practically completed plans for staging a
go between these two men on the
night of November 8, which should be
welcome news to the fight fans of this
district.
It Is stated that Ross has improved
considerably ln his ring work since
his last appearance here. Last Saturday he won u bout in Vernon and during the next couple of weeks he will
fight-In both Portland and Seattle.
A large percentage of those who
witnessed the light between Ross and
Roberts here In September are of the
opinion that Ross should have been
awarded the decision, while the admirers of Roberts are equality firm In
their belief that the decision »f the
referee was a proper one.
No doubt a large crowd wlll he present to greet these boxers on their
next appearance.
One could not help being struck by
the splendid spirit of sportsmanship
displayed by the Cumberland people
at the football match last Sunday, and
the writer must confess that it was
about the finest exhibition In this respect which he has ever seen. It Is
only natural that people wish to see
their home team win, and they can
readily be pardoned for cheering the
local men for their work on the held,
but they are not usually prone to hand
out bouquets to an aggregation of
athletes who are doing their best to
lower the colors of home players.
Such, however, was the case on Sunday afternoon, and on several occasions the applause bestowed upon the
men from Nanaimo equaled that given
the Cumberland boys. This ls only as
It should be, but as stated, It ls rarely
In evidencce.
* •   •
And the Nanaimo men fully deserved
the kind words spoken of them. During the progress of the game they displayed genuine sportsmanship and
proved themselves gentlemanly oppon
ents. They were naturally anxious to
win, but their anxiety in this respect
did not carry them beyond thc hounds
of the true sportsman.
* *   •
These remarks are equally true of
the Cumberland players. Perhaps the
local men had greater provocation to
complain than did their opponents,
because the referee (who no doubt
tried to be impartial) gave some pretty
raw decisions, and the Cumberland
boys might easily have been excused
for registering a strenuous protest.
They, however, took their medicine and
said nothing. All of which proves that
the Cumberland footballers and the
people in general are genuine sportsmen.
* *   *
I was also struck by the splendid
spirit shown during the progress of the
boxing contest on Saturday night.
Both contestants had many admirers
ln the audience, and the applause was
frequent and hearty. There was, however, a marked absence of the rowdyism and offensive remarks which quite
frequently emanate from the spectators at a prize fight. Boxing ls a
strenuous game and has a tendency to
excite an audience, but the supporters of the game In Cumberland have
proved conclusively that the sport
can be conducted in a gentlemanly
manner. The promoters of Saturday
night's events are to be congratulated
upon the splendid way in which the
whole affair was conducted.

11)  NAT BEVIS.
Old Probs the weather man was kind
enough to put the stopper In his
watering can for a sulDcient time to
allow tho football fans of Cumberland
to witness one of the beat games that
has been played in this city this season.
There was a large, turnout at Recreation grounds on Sunday afternoon
when the Cumberland and Nanaimo
United teams clashed in their fixture
of the Upper Island Football League.
Some good games have been played
between these teams during the last
few months, and Sunday's contest was
no exception. Cumberland has met and
defeated the team from Nanaimo four
times this season, each time with a
score .of 2-0, and the tifth game was a
draw.
Rain was falling pretty steadily during Use morning, but about noon the
weather cleared and remained tine
(luring the afternoon. Both teams
turned out almost at full strength,
Cumberland being without Hunden,
their outside left, C. Wilkinson taking
his place. N'anaimo was without Craig,
their famous right half, he having met
with a slight Injury while at work last
week.
Synopsis of Play.
The referee called the game at 2:4_
Cumberland won the toss and decided
to defend the east goal. Hlnes kicked
off for Nanaimo; Jackson Intercepted
and let Cumberland away, but not for
long, as Nanaimo defence was equal
to the occasion. Nanaimo then got
away on the right wing, Emerson and
Green showing some fine combination
work. Wilkinson, however, stepped in
and stopped them in short order. W.
Brown then secured the ball but was
pulled up for being off-side. Leigh took
the free kick, but Cairns returned the
ball to the Nanaimo end. Bannerman
carried the ball up the right wing,
only to be stopped in time by Zaccarelll.
Nanaimo now got settled down to Its
usual splendid combination and some
line football resulted. Hines, the centre
forward, kept his team-mates on the
balance. They had a few attempts at
goal, but did not appear dangerous, all
their tries going past the side. Nanaimo at this stage of the game was
showing superior form. However, It
was now Cumberland's turn to wake up
If they Intended annexing points. Conti
got away on his own and forced Murray to give away a corner, Conti taking the kick which was placed well.
The ball went straight for Brown's
head, and the latter had a good try
for goal, but Donaldson saved.
The Nanaimo formards appeared to
slacken now and Cumberland had
their inning. A foul off Conti for handling the ball spoiled a good opportunity. At this stage off-side and foul decisions appeared to have the effect of
slowing up the game. The ball was
now carried to Cumberland goal, to be
nicely returned by Cairns. Then Smith
had a try at Walker with a soft shot,
the latter having no trouble to clear
his lines.
Hlnes, Nanaimo centre forward, met
with a slight accident, his head coming
In contact with A. Wilkinson's foot,
causing a nasty cut above the eye.
Hlnes was forced to retire. Nanaimo
was npw very much handicapped
owing to the absence of their centre
forward, as he was showing great form
prior to his injury. Bannerman again
got away on the right, outplaying the
defence. He secured a try for goal, the
hall hitting Murray's shoulder, bounding Into the corner of. the net and
bounding hack Into the Held again. The
referee declared It a goal, and Cum-
berland thus secured Its first point.
This appeared to put more life into
the game, anil Nanaimo was determined
to even up the score. Wilkinson, however, was always on the Job, his
checking and kicking being noticeable
features, Half-time wan now called,
with Oumborlaud leading by one goal
to nil. During this period the Nanaimo.
team appeared superior, but they were
unable to locate the net.
Upon the resuptton of play, Brown
kicked off for Cumberland. Ho passed
iiic ball lo Conti, nnd together with R.
Brownj the trio uncorked  some fine
mhlnnrion,    the play    being almost
■ hoy carried the ball direct to

N'anaimo had a turn at Cumberland goal, i'ltt  Walker saved an easy

::! occasions he was successful, but
tlii  Cumberland boys kept pressing to
Donaldson's end. Jackson, centre half,
had a good try at goal, thereby securing a corner.   Although the Nanaimo
boys were  playing on   the  defensive
they were doing some wonderful work,
especially Murray and Zaccarelll, who
were in great form.
From a throw-in, C. Wilkinson
passed to W. Brown, who out-played JACK ROBERTS of Merville, who has  been challenged to light hy Ross.

Jimmy Clark of Vancouver decisively defeated Tommy Moore of Nanaimo
on Saturday night last for the lightweight championship of British Columbia. Moore's seconds threw the towel
Into the ring one minute after the
commencement ot the tenth round,
thereby avoiding what appeared to the
spectators as an Inevitable knockout.
. Clark's superiority as a boxer was
clearly shown from the commencement of the fight, aud as the bout progressed his ring generalship and experience were apparent.
Although he was outpointed in every
round but one, Moore ls deserving of
the greatest credit for his pluck ln
standing up against such a gruelling
as Clark handed out. It appeared to be
the opinion of the majority of the fans
prior to the bout that the Vancouver
man would prove the victor, but It was
generally believed that Moore would
last the full fifteen rounds. It Is stated
considerable money changed hands on
this basis.
In the third round only did Moore
make a showing, and In this he succeeded in securing an even hreuk. All
the other rounds were decidedly in
favor of Clark. Only once did Moore
go to the floor, and that, In the seventh
round, was due to a slip and not as
the result of a blow from ills opponent.
After the light Clark addressed tho
audience and gave Moore thc credit of
lining the toughest proposition he liail
gone up ugaimit ton some time and
complimented the Nanaimo hid on bin
gamoucss. Moore also said a few words
and announced that he had fought his
last tight, an announcement that was
not at all welcomed by his friends.
The contest was a clean one throughout, and though Moore resorted to the
clinch to a considerable ixtcnl toward
the latter part, the bout was a very
good exhililtlon. The promoters,,
Messrs. J. D. Davis and Robt. Brown,
are to be congratulated upon the
orderly and sportsmanlike manner iu
which the whole affair was conducted,
and future events should prove strong
drawing cards.    .
The officials selected lo handle the
bout were Mr, A. Rowan of Cumberland, referee, and Mr. S. Swansou of
Cumberland and Mr. Sharpies of Nanaimo as judges.
As a preliminary to the big event a
four-round two-minute bout was
staged between Durham and Roberts
of Merville, in which honors were
evenly divided. Roberts had a slight
advantage In the lirst; the second nnd
third were about even, while Durham
had slightly the better of the argument In the fourth.
Air. Al. Davis of Nanaimo acted as
announcer and be succeeded in putting the large audience in good humor
by his happy remarks.
The contests wero staged In the llo
Ilo Theatre, which was filled with enthusiastic fight fans.

WHY THK  DELAY .
There appears to he a marked antipathy ou the part nf the provincial
attorney-general to carry nut the
wishes of the people of Cumberland as
expressed by the City Council regarding the appointment of u police magistrate to succeed Mr. .McKinnon, who
some time ago resigned. As a result
of thla failure to make an appointment
10 this important ofllce, the city ol
Cumberland is virtually without the
proper authority to administer tlie law
in the community. It Is well on to two
months since the City Council asked
the attorney-general to appoint Aid,
Thompson to fill, the vacancy caused
by the retirement of Mr. McKinnon,
but as yet no notice has been taken ot
the request, and Cumberland is without
a police magistrate. Wherein lies the
difficulty? Is it because the nominee
of the City Council and the choice ol
the people of Cumberland is not
looked upon with favor by the powers
that lie at Victoria? There appears tu
lie a well-grounded suspicion that such
Is the case, and that this is the cause
of the delay. Perhaps the atturney-
general has in mind the appointment
of some faithful follower of the government, and while he must surely
recognize the fact that a community
of the importance which Cumberland
possesses is in need of a police magistrate, he apparently refuses to accede
to the wishes qJ the people of this city
in making the appointment. How long
must tiie people of this provincce be
compelled to submit to such treatment? And how long will it be befor
they rise en mass and demonstrate
to those who are prone to assume
tlie role of dictator when such in
stances arise that it is the people who
rule this province and not a chosen
few who are accidentally in olllce for
the time being?
barge that debt and that as quickly
a possible. They can best do this by
ubscribing to the Victory Loan.

AT PEACE WITH GERMANY.
When His Majesty King George
placed his signature to the treaty ol
peace he officially declared that the
British Empire was once more at
peace with Germany. Offtclally
tliere is peace and It is presupposed
that harmany should also prevail, but
the latter Is only a supposition. It is
beyond all reason to expect that the
people of Great Britain and her colonies and dependencies can so soon forgot tlie misdeeds of the German nation.
So long as there are within the con-
lines of the Empire people who mourn
the loss of dear ones during the war
there call be no forgetting; and usually
where there Is no forgetting there is
no forgiving. No doubt as the years
puss by the feeling of contempt and
distrust which the German people have
earned for themselves will to an ex-
teut die out, but the people of the
British Empire will never again trust
the German nation as was the case
before the mad man ol* Postdam let
loose his dogs of war and turned
Europe into a shambles. Perhaps the
Germans may rehabilitate themselves
with the civilized races, but that can
only be made possible by forsaking tlie
policy of world domination which has
been followed for years and which the
present generation of Germans lias
been taught lo believe was Ihe destiny
in store for the fatherland. There will
be official peace and to outward appearances there will he harmony, but
the people of the British Empire will
let tin; people of Germany know in no
uncertain manner that their absence
is much preferred to their company
Many United States senators claim
that America should have equal repre-
lentation in the League of Nations
with the British Empire. They seem
to forget that the Empire is made up
of several self-governing states, each
of which did as much if not more
than the United States in the winning
of the war. The war was more than
half over before the United States
made any move to offer a helping
hand, and her total of dead and
wounded docs no more than equal
that of Canada. She is therefore entitled to no more say ln the League ot
Nations than is this country.
II0RKOIY1NG   AT   HOME.
Tlie advantages to be derived from
raising at home the money necessary
ior public purposes rather than obtaining il abroad arc so great and
manifest that the government should
experience no difficulty in successfully
Homing the forthcoming Victory Loan.
By purchasing the bonds, thereby
loaning their money to the Canadian
Government, the people of Canada
reap the benefit of the Interest which
the government must pay for the use
of the money and do'not place themselves under any obligations to foreign money lenders. When money ls
raised at home the nation as a whole
is not running into debt, the people
merely loaning the money to themselves. The government becomes indebted to the people, but the people
are under no obligations to outsiders.
For this reason alone, if for no other,
it is desirable that every citizen of
Canada should belli make the loan
a success. A country that is worth
living in is worth supporting financially, and when the security Is undoubted no good reason can be ad-
vuucetl why each citizen should not
do his share. Most of the money will
be spent In re-cstublishlng the returned soldier, a debt which the nation
owes to the men who did the, lighting

The City Council is to be congratu
Iated upon the liberality which they
have shown toward the returned men
in granting a long-term lease of a
valuable piece of property in the
centre of the city to the Great War
Veterans' Association, who will use it
for the purpose of erecting thereon a
clubhouse for the use of its members.
The men who did the fighting for the
nation when she needed the services
of every man to assist in driving the
Prussian ruffians back to their own
country should not be forgotten now
that this work has been accomplished,
and the people of Cumberland have
lecided that these services will be
,'ecognized in a substantial manner.

My Hear Sir Henry,—
I am pleased to join with you ln

It is Imperative that Canada's credit
should be maintained.
As the government finds that borrowing is a necessity to meet existtnlg
obligations, it ls iu every way desirable that the amount required should
if possible be raised within Canada Itself. I hope, therefore, that the lo|n

the Dominion.
You appreciate, of course, that In

Dr. Sun Yat-sen
Warns Japan
A Reply to the Osaka Ashai.
(Reprinted from the Shanghai Gazette,
Shanghai.)
The Osaka Ashai recently requested Dr. Sun Yat-sen to give his views
on present Chtno-Japanese relations.
Dr. Sun's reply to the Ashai ls given in
full herewith:
I will frankly answer the questions
put to me by your representative as
to the underlying cause of China's deep
animosity toward Japan, and as to the
way by which more harmonious relations between these two countries can
be brought about.
In the past I exerted myself to bring
about a better understanding and
closer friendship between our two
countries, but my efforts in recent
years have met wit'i utter failure
owing to the actions, of the Japanese
Government In abetting the traitorous
Chinese officials te further their selfish
ends and tb thwart the efforts of the
People's Party. The members of the
Mintang or the People's Party, are
comparable to your reformers of the
Meijl Period. Through the efforts of
your own reformers Japan, from a
weak and small country, has become
a strong and prosperous nation in the
East. Since our reformers desired to
emulate the achievements of the MeIJi
statesmen ln the reconstruction of
China, I did my best to (effect a more
intimate friendship between our
countries.
But the Militarists of Japan In the
pursuit of the'.r aggrandizing imperia-
llastlc policy, entirely disregarded the
humanitarian aims and principles of
their own reformers and considered
China merely as being tn the path of
least resistance for the expansion of
their territorial ambitions. With the
adoption of such an attitude harmony
between our countries Is unimaginable.
Your apologists declare that you
cannot understand why China should
single out Japan for her bitter hatred
when Japan is not thn only Power1
that adopts such an aggressive policy
towards China. What dltference exists
between this line of reasoning and the
query i of the younger brother who,
after leaguing himself wf.th robbers to
plundier his elder brother's property,
enquires ot the elder brother:
"Wtujrefore should you hate me more
than you do the other robliers, for we
are of the same flesh tinfl blood?"
When Japan, like the unnatural
brother, preaches racial aifnnity and
closer relations, the limit of China's
endurance ls reached.
When Japan captured TsIntHau after
her declaration of war with (Germany,
shej solemnly, declared   to tire world
that she would return Tsingtau to
China—the rightful oyner. But as
soon as China Joined the Entente Powers, Japan secretly made a pact with
the latter Powers by which she was
recognized as the successor of the
German rights in Shantung. As Japan
was also instrumental in China's step
of throwing In her lot with the Allies,
it seemed apparent that Japan made
this move only that she might enjoy
the profits of China's labor. What sort
ot transaction does this appear in the
eyes of the Chinese? To make China
work while Japan sits by and enjoys
the wages of China's labor.
Such an act is known in the expressive Canton colloquialism as "Mai chu
teal," or selling poached pigs. This
term originated at the time when the
countries of Peru, Chile and Cuba
lacked pioneer laborers to open their
wilderness. The foreign capitalists,
learning of the cheap and Industrious
laborers of China and desiring to take
advantage ot them, sent out agents to
obtain Chinese coolies for them. China
was still a secluded country and forbade her laborers to be "exported."
Therefore the foreign i agents could
obtain them only through the port of
Macao, which was leased to the Portuguese as a trading station. From this
port many hundred thousands ot
Chinese coolies were "exported" yearly to those countries, beguiled by
promises ot an El Dorado.
These poor coolies were treated
worse than the beasts of the Held, and
not only had they to perform bard
labor, but they had to endure such
cruelties and barbarities as flogging
and killing by the overseers with Impunity. This trafficking ln Chinese
coolies was worse than any form ot
slavery known to the Chinese. Slavery
was too mild a term tor It, so our
forefathers called the victim ot this
trade the "chu tsal," or suckling pigs.
The "chu tsai" Is In a worse position
than the slave, (or It the slave Is
laborious and obedient he has hope of
good treatment and the compassion
of his master, but tor the "chu tsal"
there glimmers no such hope.
However, In those dark days of
labor exploitation, the "chu tsal"
trader would not be willing to sell his
own slaves to become laborers abroad,
but he kidnapped and enticed those for
whom he had no sympathy whatsoever.
In the eyes of the Chinese this Is
characteristic of Japan today, tor
Japan has more consideration for
Korea and Formosa than she has for
China, for whom she holds out no
single vestige of pity except to gain
and reap whatever profits she can get
out of China. And yet tor such treatment Japan expects from China no resentment!
It what has befallen China in this
recent war be taken as a precedent,
then whenever a war occurs In the
future Japan can force us to Join while
Bhe herself watches by and enjoys the
fruits thereof, This Is Blmply treating
China as her "poached pig." The
Macao "pig poachers" only sold their
"pigs" and pocketed the money from
the foreign buyers. Japan, by ordering
China to Join the Entente in the European war, received Ike three groups of
islands in the Pacific. But not contented with this, Japan snatched from us
Shantung, the most precious and
sacred of the eighteen provinces. This
may be compared to the action of a I
pig poacher who after selling the pig,
pockets the money, and sneaklngly
cuts off for himself a huge slice of
flesh from the live animal. Is It to be
wondered that bitter indeed are China's
feelings toward Japan? Japanese
pologlstB base Japan's claim on Tsingtau as by right of conquest. If so, why
did not Japan openly and fearlessly demand from the Entente Powers the
right to Shantung when her army took
Tsingtau, instead of underhandedly
and secretly concluding a treaty with
the latter when China Joined the European war, by which Shantung is given
to Japan as compensation for countenancing China's participation ln the
war on the side of the Allies
China Is not yet even a colony of
Japan, but the Japanese Government
has virtually exercised the power of
veto over China's movements and thus
gained rewards from the Entente Powers. Is not this the act of selling China
as her "chu tsal"?
The conflict of two distinct Ideas
brought about the European war, the
idea of world domination and the idea
of self-determination of peoples. The
American, and British troops recaptured from Geremany innumerable
famous cities and historic towns in
Europe which aggregated a hundred
times larger than Tsingtau ,and their
sacrifices and sufferings were a million times greater than those of the
Japanese; yet every Inch of these
lands was restored by them to the
rightful owners. If Japan entered the
European war on the side of nations
opposed to conquests, how could she
demand the succession of German
aggrandizement in China?
Borne have said that since China has
not achieved much for the Allied cause
she should not covet Japan's laurels.
It is true that China cannot claim the
laurels and glory ln the Allied victory,
but be it noted that the Poles and
Czechs accomplished very little in the
war; yet their territories which were
conquered by Austria and Germany
over a hundred years ago, were returned to them. Denmark remained
throughout the war a neutral country.
She had not lifted a hand to support
the Allies; nevertheless, her territories
which were captured by Germany sixty
years ago, are being restored to her.
Is It not, therefore, reasonable and just
tor China to expect the unconditional
restoration of Tsingtau?
While the Japanese are constantly
advocating closer relationships between China and Japan on account of
racial, affinity and common literature,
their treatment of China ls far Inferior
to the treatment accorded her by thej|
Americans and the Europeans. How
could you, then, expect the Chinese not
to unite as one man to resist you and
to adopt the policy of making friends
with those afar and fight those near
by and, it necessary, to drag you to a
common ruin?
Thus the succession to German
rights in Shantung Is a prelude to the
succession ot Germany's downfall.   If
you mean what you profess, and are
sincere in desiring the friendship of
the Chinese people, you should force
your Government to repent and abandon for all times the policy of making
China the victim of your territorial expansion. Unless that Is done there will
be no peace in the Far East.
