Member's Resolution
Government To Test Island Coat
Government Approves Plan Of
Mr. Neill to Test Coal on
Pacific Coast Boat
Mr. A. W. Neill, member for Comox-
Alberni In the Federal House has
above all things, the Interest of his
constituency at heart, first, last, and
at all times. He greatly Interested
himself on behalf of the fishermen and
the lumber Industry and has always
been very active whenever the national problems of the coal Industry
came up for discussion in the House
of Commons. On Wednesday of this
week, the House of Commons adopted
with the consent of the Government,
Mr. Neill's resolution that they should
adapt one of their steamers on the Pacific Coast and the furnace of one ot
the Dominion Government buildings
In Vancouver to the use of pulverized
coal from Vancouver Island Mines,
this by way of a test and demonstration.
Any tests made with pulverized coal
trom local mines will be watched with
a great deal of interest, not only by
Cumberland people, but by residents
of the whole province..
A press report trom Ottawa says:
"Development of the commercial possibilities of pulverized coal will be proceeded with immediately by the Government To test and demonstrate
possibilities, tne Government will (a)
adapt one of Its steamers on the Pacific Coast to utilize pulverized coal;
(b) use pulverized coal In one of the
Government buildings to British Colombia.
In making this announcement to
the House of Commons, Hon. Charles
Stewart, Minister of tne Interior, said
he thought there was a bright future
for pulverized fuel, especially for use
tu freighters. Pulverized fuel was no
longer ln an experimental stage.
EQUALS FUE OIL.
Mr. Neill said that scientific research In Britain and elsewhere bad
demonstrated that coal when used
ln a highly pulverized form could successfully compete In price and results With fuel oU. He thought it was
desirable that the output ot Our mines
should be Increased and more labor
employed.
C. H. Dickie, Conservative, Nanaimo, who voiced his support, believed
that pulverized coal could be used on
steamboats and the like on Uhe Pacific
Coast."

Surprise to Many Friends
Numerous friends and acquaintances of the Comox District were
greatly shocked and grieved on Saturday evening to hear of the death of
one of of Cumberland's old and well

grievous shock even to those near and
dear relatives attending her bedside.
Mrs. Haywood was born at Mark-
field, Leicestershire, England, and was
in her seventy-fifth year, being a resident of Cumberland for the past thirty years. The deceased was well
known and beloved by a wide circle
of Cumberland and district residents,

affairs. For many years she was a
faithful and devoted member of Grace
Methodist Cruoh and since its consolidation has been in the same measure
faithful to the Cumberland United
Church and all that lt represented.
Funeral services were conducted
at the family home, Derwent land
Fourth Streets on Tuesday afternoon,
when the Haywood home was filled to
capacity with relatives and friends
who came from far and near to pay
their last tribute. A beautiful funeral
In the course of which he expressed
the hope that the life and works of
Mrs. Haywood might serve to Inspire
the living, especially the younger generation ln molding their future life.
Messrs, Maxwell, R. Brown, White,
Armstrong, Pearse and Coe served as
, pallbearers.

Firemen's Carnival
Dance Successful
Local Fire Fighters Celebrate
St. Patrick's Day
The Cumberland Volunteer Fire Department celebrated St. Patrick's day
and this has been their custom for the
last quarter of a century. In previous years the celebraUon took the
form of a monster masquerade, but
after due consideration lt was decided
to hold a novelty carnival dance. Masquerade balls in Cumberland during
the laBt two years have not been the
success 'they were a few years ago.
It was hard for the fire fighters to depart from a custom established twenty-five years ago, but it was necessary
to make a few dollars rn an effort to
build up their finances, ihence the departure from the masquerade to the
novelty carnival dance.
The dance was held on Friday last
in the Ilo-Ilo Hall, which had been
very tastefully decorated in the colors of Uie firemen with the fancy colored festoons and baloons In profusion
Confetti, gay paper hats and many
other novelties were introduced and
distributed free of charge to the many
assembled dancers. A right jolly
time followed the opening waltz, the
dancers entering into the carnival
spirit with a vim. Jimmy Walker's
Melody Four orchestra supplied the
music, this popular orchestra being
assisted by the services of Les Moody
one of the foremost trombone players
on the Island and by young Sam Davis
with his wonderful sousaphone. The
Dance was a wonderful success, the
firemen being freely complimented on
the success of their first novelty carnival dance.

Enthusiastic Meeting Held—Mr.
Douglas Introduces Earlier
Closing of Deer Season

in the lecture hall of the Literary and
Athletic Association building was very
well attended, chief business being
the receiving of the secretary's report
ind the election of officers for the ensuing year. The secretary's report
showed the finances of the club to be
in a very satisfactory condition, due
to the excellent work of the executive
committee,
A very important recommendation
was brought before the meeting by
5Ir. Wm. Douglas, a well known local
hunter. Tills gentelman brought before the meeting, what he considers
to lie a very Important matter, the earlier closing of the deer hunting season,
Mr. Douglas, who Is an experienced
hunter showed many reasons Why
deer should not be shot after the first
of December, claiming that deer by
the middle of the month are ln the
rutting season and fall easy prey to
the hunter, and further, Waimed Mr.
Douglas, the deer at this season of the
year are not fit for consumption.
Another resolution put before the
meeting read: "Resolved that a request be made to the proper authorities, that logging operalons on Punt-
ledge lake be carried out with proper
care for the preservation of fish and
that lake shores be kept free from
debris."
Officers elected for the ensuing year
were elected as follows: Hon. President Mr. H. Maynard, Victoria; Hon.
Vice-presidents, Mr. C. H. Tarbell and
Mr. P. P. Harrison, M.L.A.; President
Mr. W. Williams; Vice-President,

on behalf of Chinese secret societies.
Witnesses from Cumberland were
Robert Strachan, civil engineer and
Dr. G. K. MacNaughton who was summoned to the restaurant on the night
of the stabbing, to attend to he Injured
man. The evidence of Drl MacNaugh-
on was practically the same as given
at the preliminary hearing in Cumberland and fully reported in the columns
of the Islander at that time.
Chinese wlnesses from Cumberland
examined were Mah Tong Kee and
Dong Wong. The latter took the oath
by burning a piece of paper on which
his name was written. Corporal Matthews and Constable Fenton of the
Provincial Police, stationed ..at Courtenay also gave evidence.
ACCUSED ON STAND.
The accused took the stand and the
oath which he said hound him to his
conscience, which like the oath other
Oriental witnesses had administered
to them, consisting of the burning of
a piece of paper which had their name
written thereon, In the belief that If
they dlsgressed from the truth their
soul would be burned In hell like the
piece of paper ignited in their presence. He said he was coming towards the Pekin restaurant, from the
Dark Coon Club on December 29th
last, when Mun called to him that he
had a letter for him. He took the letter aud returned to his room at tho
club and noticed that the room was
lot clean, so he swept up an Udled up
the clothing strewn about, and forgot
to read the letter. He returned to Fong
Mun's house wlUi the intention of pur-
hasing $10 worth of bonds and on his
vay down slipped and bruised 41s side
It bothered him, so he returned to his
home at the club and rubbed his side
and took some Chinese medicine. Then
he noticed the unopened letter on the
table and read It and wondered who
wrote him such a letter and took It
to his older "brother." the deceased.
He found Fong Mon working a sewing
machine and witness stayed a while
and read a magazine, and drank some
of Mon's tea and then curled up on
three chairs to have a sleep. Mon and
he had lit a cigarette with one match
while in friendly conversation, and he
asked witness If he had read the letter
which he said came from Vancouver
tong.
"I asked deceased who broughht the
letter that day and he had replied that
he did not know" said witness.    "I

THE NEW JUDICIAL COUNTY
rNDER the caption "Entirely Unnecessary"
the "Daily Province" of the 13th., instant,
complains that the division of the present
County of Nanaimo into two new counties is an
unwarranted piece of political patronage.
We think that the following facts indicate that
the "Province" is entirely unjustified in its criticism.
Vancouver Island is at present divided into two
judicial divisions, namely, the County of Victoria,
having an area of one-twentieth of the Island,
presided over by His Honor Judge Lapman; and
the County of Nanaimo, having an area of nine-
teen-twentieths of the Island, and tor which Their
Honors Judges Barker and Mcintosh hold office,
In the last named county the Court Houses are
at Cumberland, Alberni, Nanaimo. Ladysmith and
Duncan.
Judge Barker resides at Nanaimo, seventy miles
from our part of the County, and Judge Mcintosh
at Victoria, one hundred and forty miles away.
The last named Judge never officiates at Cumberland, while Judge Barker holds Court and
Chambers there only once a month, but does not
officiate in Chambers from the second Wednesday
in June to the second Wednesday in September.
In other words applications to a judge can only
be made once a month and not at all for three
months in the year, notwithstanding the fact
that two judges hold office for that County.
Why should the southern part of the extensive
County of Nanaimo which is blessed with a twice
daily train service and magnificent roads and with
a distance of only thirty-five miles between Nanaimo and Duncan, have two judges on the job, so
to speak, while the northern part must be content
with a once a month judicial service for only nine
months of the year, by a Judge who resides seventy miles away.
As there are two judges for that County, one
should resicla at Nanaimo and the other in this
part of the County. Bill 46, which finds so much
disfavor in the eyes of the "Daily Province,'
divides the present County of Nanaimo into two
new counties, namely, Comox and Nanaimo, which
will result in Judge Barker being appointed to one
of such new counties and Judge Mcintosh to the
other of them, thus having the effect of giving the
northern and southern parts of tho present Coun.
ty of Nanaimo each a resident Judge.
The division of the County will not cost either
the Dominion or Provincial Government a cent,
but will simply place these two judges where
they will be of the most use and convenience to
the public.
•    Political or any other kind of patronage does
not enter into the matter at all.
of the Provincial Government's to that position. Vancouver Island has no more need of a third judicial county,
or a fourth county court, judge, than a wagon has of a
fifth wiheel, and we inane the Legislature will say so.
At present, on Vancouver Island, there are two judicial
counties, Victoria and Nanaimo, and three county court
judges. Everybody who knows anything about it at all
knows that Their Honors Judges Lampmau, Barker and
Mcintosh, have no trouble at all In attending to all their
jurisdiction. It Is no secret Indeed taht they would welcome more work. No honorable man likes to feel that his
position is a sinecure.
Of course the Provincial Government will say that the
creation of a new judicial county does not necessarily
mean the appointment of a new judge. Perhaps the government, then, will tell us what it does mean. The last
time a county court judge was appointed on the Island,
the judicial counties were left as they were, and (here have
since been three judges to serve two counties. If the judicial county of Comox Is created, the chances are It will
be found before very long that there are four judges to
serve three counties. That is the credible rumour in the
lobbies of the Legislature.
There Is a movement, afoot In Canada to raise the salaries of judges, and especially those of county court judges.
There is also the opinion of a good many competent observers that we have far too many judges in Canada for the
work they have to do.' As a matter of fact, there are ac
tually four times as many superior court judges in Canada
as there are in all England. Perhaps tihere Is a good case
for better pay for our judges, but It will certainly prejudice
that case If It Is shown that some of our judgeships are
sinecures. Anyhow, there Is no doubt that a fourth county
court judge on Vancouver Island is entirely unnecessary.
If the Legislature does Its duty, it will prevent his appointment. If it doesn't do Its duty, then we hope tthat the
department of justice at Ottawa can be trusted to refuse
In acquiescence. —Vancouver Dally Province.

THE WAY OF THE QUITTER
THE WORLD has little use for a quitter. The
fellow who starts and backs out because the
creek is up. The fellow that promises to saw
wood for you Wednesday, discover? about nine
o'clock there is a screw loose in the handle of his
saw, and sends you word Saturday that he could
not come. The fellow who starts to trim the
hedge, blisters his hands and decides to let it go
until later.
The boy who goes racing through his school
books until he strikes participles and compound
fractions then wants to quit school and get a job
The girl who starts out to be a great musician
and learns just enough to play jazz to beguile the
fancies of some young sap head.
There is a big family of these quitters, but they
are all a sorry lot. They never want a job that
takes time and patience.
With the qualifications of a bill poster they
would like to earn the salary of a railroad president. Their ideal is a job that requires only two
hours of easy labor each day, with Saturdays and
holidays off.
You will find them scattered ail up and down
the road of human failure, always turning back
from the handle of the plow, always complaining
of their 'lot and the unfairness of the world.
They are clogs in the wheels, broken rails on
the road, time-killers, patience killers, forever
wanting what they have not yet deserved.
The only people who accomplish things in this
world are those who qualify themselves in spite
of bad crops, high water and measles. Who hang
on to their work until failure turns to victory,
whose courage rises as difficulties thicken, and
whose faces are forever toward the rising sun.
It was not a bad plan, that of the Indians, flinging their boys into the river where they had to
swim or drown. The best thing any parent can do
for his child is to compel him to finish what he
undertakes. Keep him at it, and no matter how
much he cries and objects make him do the thing
he started to do. And the best thing any boy or
girl can do is to do the very thing without being
made to do it.
Success is a good deal in habit. There is not
to permit the creation of an unnecessary county court I much  difference   between  failure  and  success.
judgeship, and the appointment of some political friend j Simply one quits and the other does it.   	
P. P. HARRISON.
The following is the editorial which appeared in
the "Vancouver Daily Province" of the 13th inst,
concerning the creation of a third judicial county
of Comox on Vancouver Island.
ENTIRELY UNNECESSARY
BILL NO. 4tj standing in the name ol the attorney-general and now before the Legislature, is a harmless
looking measure, and all It purports to do Is create
a third judicial county on Vancouver Island. We believe
the measure Is an unwarranted piece of political patronage!
Miss May Turner and her brother,
Herbert, left on Monday morning for
Vancouver.
Mr. W. E. Lansbrough, from Alber.
ta, arrived ln the Valley on Saturday's
train on a visit to Mrs. Lansbrough,
who has been a guest of Mrs. Stalker
for a few months.
Mr. and Mrs. Hugo and family came
from Williams Lake on Friday last for
an extended visit to Mrs. Hugo's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Miller. Mr.
Hugo intends going to Alaska and Mrs.
Hugo and the children will make their
home here until his return.
Mr. and Mrs. Wesley White visited
his folks over the week-end.
The rough weather and windstorm
of Tuesday made logging rather dangerous and some of the boys came
home for a change.
Another of those pleasant whist
drives was held on Tuesday evening
ln the school. A good crowd turned
out nnd an enjoyable evening was
held, the winners being announced as
follows: Ladies, first, Mrs. Calnan and
Mrs. M. Plercy, a tie. Mrs. Plercy winning on the cut; Mrs. A. Piercy received the consolation. On the men's
side, Mr. M. Piercy won first, John
Williamson, second, and A. Gray, con-!
solution. Refreshments were served
by the ladles after the games. I
The two rooms in tho school are J
filled now, and quite a few more schol-1
nrs will be along soon. The two
teachers are finding their hands very
full and with an ungraded school no
teacher can find time to give each
scholar the attention required. So the
Valley faces a problem now of providing more accommodation and an addition to the teaching staff to give the
scholars a chance.

TJmroKMiTT of dress Is rapidly disappearing and Individuality is filling
its place. The woman of today bai
her hair dressed or cut, chooses perfumes and cosmetics, selects hats,
bags and shoes, all to express definitely her personality. But she is
particularly careful In the designing
of her frocks. They must be a part
of her, must have a little touch of
originality and suit her type of face
and figure. For r slender women of
poise who apprecittes the smartness
of ' simplicity, the dress above is a
splendid suggestion for street, or business wear during (he Spring. The
scarf collar thrown carelessly about
the neck and over one shoulder Is especially chic as Is the origiual scalloped outline down the left side and ending ln pleats on the skirt. The long
straight sleeves buttoned at the wrists
and the narrow belt at the hips complete the details ot this youthful
frock. Made In light wools or tweed,
lt li very comfortable and smart for
tb* early Spring shopper. For summer the same design can he effectively
used in silk or cotton prints, bound
ln plain fabrics of ■ harmonising hue.

■ ■
: One o fthe most impressive moments in the big :
• new British War film, "THE SOMME," is when, out |
• of the grey mist of the battle field there appears the :
: gigantic outline of the first Tank to enter the war zone. •
j The first entry of the Tanks into the firing line was !
: during the second week in September, 1916, and the •
■ surprise of the troops when they saw the weird and j
■ wonderful mechanical device, is aptly conveyed in the :
I film when a Tommy, sheltering in a shell hole, during j
• | an advance, says to his mate when he sees the Tank, j.
: "Have I got 'em, or something?"   His mate's reply is :
■: "Gawstrikemepink." :"
■ .
: The surprise of the British and Allied troops at !
• the debut of the Tanks, was nothing compared with j
■ that experienced by the Germans, who, strongly en :
: trenched in their concrete dug-outs, thought their line :
• impregnable.   Came the Tanks—crushing entrances to |
■ gun emplacements, rolling out the dug-out entrances, j
: and literally "chewing up" barbed wire entanglements. ;
: These incidents are wonderfully conveyed in this ■
■ remarkable New Era film which will be shown at the :

MUD   AND   MEN.
The long-awaited New Era production "THE
SOMME," will be seen at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre, next week
end.
It is said that this war film differs in many respects from those that have proceeded it, in that it
shows the first engagement of the Tanks in the fighting
line, it reproduces many extremely funny incidents
which must have saved many a Tommy's sense of
humour during those weary days, and it reproduces
Somme mud at its worst.
Many of the men who took part in the film are
actual survivors of the Somme campaign, and they
have every reason to confirm the fact that the mud
was really genuine. After a long day's work—plodding
through the black bog, one little Cockney Tommy was
heard to say: "Blimey, Bill, I wish to goodness I could
stand under a hose pipe, then I might be able to get rid
of this 'ere mud."
One of the many thrilling incidents which are
included in the film, is that of the winning of the V.C.
by Piper James Richardson, of the 16th Canadian
Scottish, who, when his Company attacked, begged
permission to pipe them "over the top."

Victoria, March 22.—With Che mln-,
ing coming more and more to the fore
in British Columbia, the wisdom of
the course followed by the provincial I
government's department of mines is
plainly evident, state businessmen i
throughout the province, and partic- j
ularly In the larger centres. Founded
upon real merit and with tho support;
ot sane legislation, the industry has
come Into Its own.
With approximately onle fifteenth
of the total population ot Canada, j
British Columbia In 1927 produced
more than one-quarter ot all minerals
turned out by Canadian mines. Since
records were first kept, the mining of
thlg province has been more than one
billion dollars. Experts agree that
within two years, or three at best, mining will be tho leading industry.
The policy of opening promising
new districts by constructing trails,
and roads, as followed by the late:
Hon. William Sloan, Is now bearing

which he and the government have
provided, have put the Industry in a
position where its ffrlure is without
question.
Many mining properties are now
being devclopped. And, thanks to the
watchfulness of the'new mines minister, Hon. W. H. Sutherland, British
Columbia Is entirely free trom wlld-
catmlning promotions. Warning to
the public has been sent out frequently to Investigate fully before purchasing stocks of mining companies. The
result has been that mining men have
the confidence of tihe public and sound
progress is being made.
Businessmen In every section report
increased turnover of stocks. The
farming is finding readier market for
his produce In many sections where
he could not Bucceed If he were not
able to send his farm products to the
mining camps and towns at a profit,
In short, a major industry Is now well
established, and a great deal of the
credit Is due the administration ot
Premier MacLean at Victoria.

Unanimous support was given bv

teachers of British Columbia that he

Skeena,. surj'ported by Premier Mac-
Lean, moved a resolution that every

finance department In the working out
of thenecessary leglslaion. The house
adopted {he resolution without dissent.

Following Premier MacLean's plea
tor united action on the part of the
legislation in dealing with problems ot
major importance, a unanimous decision iwias reached with regard to the
Oriental question. Briefly summed
up, the resolution passed by the members seeks power for British Columbia
to control the owning of land by orientals and their admission to this
province. It was pointed out by members of both parties that there should
be no more Japanese and Chinese In
British Columbia, considering, population, than there are Canadians In Japan and China. Ottawa Is to be asked

Milk and Tuberculosis
The value of milk is no limited to
the first year of life. As the child
grows, he needs to enlarge his diet,
but milk continues to be the most Important article in this diet during the
years ot growth. Every child should
have one pint of milk ia day to provide
tlie necessary growing substance for
ihe body.
Young children have very little
resistance to tuberculosis. In their
earliest years they are easily overcome by this disease. There are two
types of the tuberculosis germ, two
members of the same family as it
were, which cause tuberculosis in
children—'the hu an and the bovine
type. By far the greater number ot
cases are caused by tho human type.
'Plie bovine type Is responsible tor
about 25 per cent, of all tuberculosis
occurring amongst children. In children, tuberculosis often attacks the
bones and joints, and so is responsible
fr0 much crippling.
The bovine type of the tuberculosis
germ comes from cows suffering from

The government's pledged word to
the British Columbia legislature and
the electors ot the province was glvon
before the house prorogued that if a
satisfactory sale of tlle Pacific Great
Eastern Railway could not .be effected
the line would be completed trom
Vancouver to Prince George. Oppositions are not prone to accept promises
from any government; so the present
Instance ts taken as ia special tribute
! to the integrity of Premier MacLean.
He has stated several times publicly
and through the press that the government is endeavoring earnestly to
dispose ot the line to advantage. Fall-
! Ing ln Mint, the line must be finished
I This stand has met with general ap-
i proval, even from those who in the
past .have claimed that the line was
not necessary. But as they have seen
million piled upon million, year after
year, they have accepted that an unfinished railway is ot no value to anyone. As the situation now stands,
either the government or private capital or one of the large railway companies will put tho Pacific Great Eastern Railway on its feet, to the great
benefit of the entire province.

Orliclsm of the government's policy
of spending money for highway construction petered out In the legislature
before prorogation. The new loan bill
for $4,600,000, of which $4,000,000 will
be used for highway purposes, was
•passed by a vote of 26 to 17, the Conservatives standing alone against the
rest ot the house. Bon. Dr. Sutherland, minister of public works, declared that the public generally criticized only because too little was spent
He showed thnt his highway policy is
rapidly opening up the province to
both the tourist and the setler, and
brought improved highways motorist's
costs of upkeep are being reduced materially.

The sound condition of British Columbia's finances was clearly shown
In the legislature last week by Hon. J.
D. MacLean, minister of finance. He
stated that by the end of 1929 all British Columbia's debenture borrowings
will be covered by full sinking fund
provision. This, he showed, will further strengthen the province's iposl-
tlon at the head of all the provinces
ot Canada.
tuberculosis, and reaches the. child
through milk. As a large percentage
ot milch cows have tuberculosis, it
follows that a large percentage of the
milk is infected with the bovine type
ot tuberculosis germs. From this It
is evident that, unless the necessary
precautions are taken, milk Is a.real
facto rln the spread of tuberculosis
to young children.
It Is part of any campaign against
ubercu'.oaiB or towards the Improve-
of child health to see that the milk
supply Is sate and pure. A sate, ipure
milk supply, free from all danger of
carrying tuberculosis or any other
disease ot human beings, particularly
children, comes from healthy cows,
is produced and shipped In a cleanly
way, Is pasteurized to kill any disease
germs, Is kept cold and covered until
used.        /
Is this the kind of milk you and
your children use?

Mon that as they were cousins, and
had come from the same village, It
was a poor way to act. Deceased had
replied, "How dare you be rude to my

BEY. A. de 1.. NUNNS PREACHER
AT HOLY TRINITY CHURCH,
The Rev. A. de L. Nunns was the
preacher at Holy Trinity Church last
Sunday evening. The texts for the
sermon were taken from the sixteenth
verse of the twenty-third chapter according to St. Luke and the sixth verse
of the nineteenth chapter according to
St. John, being respectively, "I will
therefore chastise Wm and release
him" and "Take ye him and crucify
Mm.'
"These  words,"  said  the  speaker,
'are well known to us all.   They are
the words uttered by Pontius Pilate
at the trial of our I^ord Jesus Christ.
Pilate's name has been handed down
to us from generation to generation,
' il always he lias been regarded with
•"orn, for did not he oonedmn Christ
"o death upon the cross?   But In truth
I'llnte was the least guilty of all the
I nidges    before    whom    Christ    was
I) ought.   Consider the first text, the
ords recorded by St. Luke which em-
'~'lied Pilate's first decree.    "I  will
therefore  chastise  him  and   release
him.'' Pilate was convinced that the
mon. whom the people had brought to
him,  was  Innocent, and he resolved
that he would not allow Jesus to be
crucified as was the wish of the captors.   What a wonderful resolution If
only the moral courage necessary to
keep lt had been In Pilate.   The resolution was made, but in his innermost
heart Pilate feared the Jews; he fear-
the Roman emperor.    He  looked  a:
the bloodthirsty mob, crying for the
death of the prisoner, and his mind
began to think how lie could keep his
resolution by easier methods, how he
i-ould find a way in which he would
not arouse the anger of the people
Yes,  undoubtedly a splendid resolu
tlon had been made but ln what manner was it to be kept.    Three way I
Pilate tried: First of all he attempteil
u> shift the responsibility of giving the
decision onto the shoulders of another; secondly he appealed to the pal-
riolism of the mob, for was not the
prisoner also a Jew; thirdly and lastly
he appealed to their liner feelings.
Thrice he had tried to keep his res
olution but In doing so not Injure Mm-
self.rather turn the feelings of the
people so they themselves would have
the prisoner released. Thrice he failed. There was yet one way. Pilate
could openly forbid the execution, u
he found no fault with the prisoner.
A'h. but that meant facing the wrath
of the mob, possibly the anger of the
ed the Roman emperor. He looked al
Roman emperor. He wavered; then
enme the words "Take ye him and
crucify him." Pilate lacked mora':
courage. He had made a splendid resolution and yet. he had not the will
power to hold to It.   He tried to use
the easier methods, and then when
once started on this track, plunged
deeper and deeper into the mire until
he was lost.
My friends, the case of Pilate Is not
an Isolated case ln the world today.
We all make resolutions, especially
in this season of Lent, how many of
us keep them? Do we not sidetrack
to find easy ways, and In doing so
have we not defeated our own ends?
De true to your conscience. Walk In
the ways of light. Stand steadfast
under the banner of Jesus Christ.
"Stand up. stand up for Jesus;
The strife will not be long;
This day the noise ot battle,
Thenext the victor's song:
To him that overcometh,
A crown of life shall be;
He with the king of klory
Shall reign eternally."

Neill Urges Government to Give
This Province Same Privileges
as Alberta
Ottawa, March 20.—A. W. Neill, Independent, Coraox-Albeml, asked In
the House ot Commons this afternoon
whether the government would exend
to the Province of British Columbia
Hlr.;llar rate privileges with regard to
the movement of coal on the Ontario
markets as were given to Alberta by
the order-in-council Just passed. Also
he wished to know whether the minister would undertake to arrange with
he Canadian Merchant Marine to ship
coal from British Columbia ports at
a rate which would permit It to compete ln the Ontario and Quebec markets.
Mr. Speaker suggested that the minister of the Interior should be given
at least until today to answer the
question.
Mr. Stewart said that perhaps the
best reply lie could make at present
would be to file the order-ln-councll
with regard to the movement ot Alberta coal to Ontario.

NEW PARK ENCLOSES
FORTY TOWNSHIPS
Approximately forty townships are
enclosed by the boundaries of Saskatchewan's new National Park. In
Square miles the area Is slightly more
than 1,400, whclh mukes the park
comparable in size to Olazler National
Park ln the United States. Prince Albert park, as it has been called, lies
no more than 30 ralles north and
northwest of the city of Prince Albert,
which Is on the line of the Canadian
National Railways, and will be easily
accessible from Saskatoon, Reglna
and other large centres.
Surrounding, as it does, three large
lakes—Wasklsue. Little Trout and Big
Trout, taking In many smaller ones
and extending for miles along the
eastern shore of Montreal Lake, the
park Is a land of varied beauty. The
waters, which teem with fish, are
beautiful and clear and edged, in
many spots, with clean white sandy
beaohes. All the lakes are connected
by streams which makes it possible
for the vacationist to wander for days
by canoe or motorboat. The forest
is a mixture of evergreens, pine,
spruce, tamarac, popular and birch.
In all respects it fulfills the objective of the Parks branch of the Dominion Department of the nlterlor—the
permanent preservation of regions
outstanding in beauty in their natural
condition; conservation of plant and
tree life from commercial exploitation
and fire hazard and conservation of
game. The new park provides and
protects a large area of Saskatchewan's best forest and lake country and
the road ilevelopement which has been
planned will make Its farthest corners
accessible to those seeking health,
recreation and data for scientific studies.

DUNCAN RADMINTON
STILL  POPULAR
The Duncan Badminton club have
almost finished their season, the closing date bejpg set for March 24th.
last week the Westholme racket wield-
ers visited Duncan and enjoyed some
very close and exciting games.
The game of badminton continues to
grow at the south end of the Island,
and at Duncan, in addition to club
play, tournaments and inter-club
games have been thoroughly enjoyed,
the Duncan club, however, owing to
lack of accommotdation, had to limit
their membership last season. With
increased facilities it is probable that
the game would gain an even greater
following. In an effort to relieve the
situation and provide for a larger
membership the club has approached
the Cowlchan Agricultural Association
offering a larger rent If the balcony
at the hall Is taken out so as to give
room for four courts Instead of three.
The matter of building a special badminton hall has also been discussed
by some of the members. In adlttlon
to giving room for expansion, other
points are cited in favor of such a
scheme, Including better arrange
ments of courts and lighting effects.
