SECURING RECRUITS  IN LONDON
Monster parades throughout Great Britain, but especially in London, constantly keeps before the eyes of the young
men of enlisting age, the fact that their country calls.   The battalion shown is marching
from the Mansion House, London, to their headquarters.
BEVAN CELEBRATION
The first Dominion Day Celebration of the Bevan Athletic
Association was a banner day in
Bevan, and marked a new era in
the history of that town. A
splendid day was spent by all
who patronized Bevan sports.
The program was long and
varied, many unique events being
introduced. ' 'Cutting the Goose,''
for which there were one hundred
entries, and a few other sports,
were continued on July 2nd.
The baseball competition was
won by the Courtenay Baseball
team from Bevan and the Japs.
The football competition was
won by Bevan team from West
Cumberland team and Bevan No.
2 team.
The Ambulance competition
prize was won by the Bevan team
under the captaincy of H. Tappin.
The other competing teams carried out their duties creditably.
The judges were: Dr. Geo. K.
MacNaughton* Dr. Montgomery,
Comox; Dr. J. A. Gillespie, of
Vancouver.
The obstacle race and the other
events were keenly contested.
Special mention must be made of
the neutral umpire and referee
for the way in which they carried
out their respective duties.
The ground was decorated with
the pennant of the B.A.A. and
the flags of the Allies.
courtYnaT bridge
A deputation from Courtenay
consisting of Mayor Kilpatrick,
Aldermen Dr. Crompton and Wm.
Duncan, interviewed the minister
of public works at Victoria this
week in the endeavour to induce
the government to build a new
bridge over the Courtenay River.
It is expected that the government will comply, as the old
structure was practically condemned over two years ago, and
being on the Island Highway to
Campbell River it is of vital importance to the safety of traffic
of not only Courtenay people but
to the many motoring tourists
who visit these parts frequently.
Apart from being such a necessity for safety to traffic the construction of the bridge would be
of the greatest benefit locally as
there are so many unemployed in
the district who have a poor outlook for the winter. Illustrative
of the absolute need of the new
bridge a workman repairing lately

The steaming qualities of the
Comox coal, produced by the
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir)
Ltd., is second only to the Welsh
steam coal, and it is this fact that
is borne in mind by the ship owners when ordering vessels here
for bunkers.
Two ocean freighters are due
during the coming week to replenish their bunkers with Comox
coal at the Union Bay Wharves.
It is interesting to note that an
increased number of ocean steamers are now coming to Union Bay
to refill their bunkers with Comox
Coal. With the Dominion Government coming to our rescue with
a substantial import duty on fuel
oil Cumberland will gain the prosperity it enjoyed three years
ago.
drove an eight-inch spike in a
joist and was able to pull it out
by hand the wood was so rotten.
The city council at their last
meeting requested Bridge Foreman McCann to give his expert
opinion on the matter and he informed them that the present
state of the bridge was dangerous
to the public.
A QUESTION OF PATRIOTISM P
Some months ago the B.C.
Sugar Refining Company, of Van
couver, published large display
advertisements in the daily
papers, calling upon all British
Columbia people to show their
patriotism by using that company's home-refined sugar in preference to a foreign article.
Later, the same concern is
found associated with a number
of manufacturers and transportation companies who recently presented a counter-petition to the
Dominion Government protesting
against the imposition of an import duty on foreign fuel oil in
favor of home-mined coal.
The idea seems to be that it is
right and proper for consumers
of sugar to be patriotic, but that
no such obligation rests upon
consumers of fuel.
Perhaps the B. C. Sugar Refining Company might see a great
light if all the people who are
suffering through the competition
of fuel oil should cease to buy
their sugar. Probably a quarter
of their entire output goes to the
coal mining towns. Would it
please them to lose that trade?
Boycott? Nothing of the sort.
A simple business proposition;
why should a coal miner support
a firm which is helping to take
away his livelihood? Of course,
the same thing applies to all
business concerns which are
opposing the duty on oil. The
B.C. Sugar Refining Cpmpany is
singled out for particular mention only because its appeal to
patriotism on its own behalf invites attack.
Dickie, Norman and John
Stewart, of Bevan, joined the
Canadian Expeditionary Forces
and left on Wednesday.
James J. Keary, provincial
secretary of the executive of the
British Columbia Amateur Athletic Union, reports that G. W.
Nicholson, president of the Victoria Branch, will visit this district in the near future for the
purpose of organizing a branch
of the Amateur Athletic Union.
The committee in charge of the
Dominion Day sports at Union
Bay wishes to thank the citizens
of Cumberland for their hearty
support in assisting to make the
day a huge success. TWO

Fuel Oil.
It is of no use to blink facts.
The outstanding fact about fuel
oil is that it can be produced and
handled so much cheaper than
coal that it can be sold in the
open market for about one half
lhe price of coal.
Now when a manufacturer
who has been a heavy consumer
of coal finds that he can get the
. ame results at half the cost by
i .sing oil, naturally he will abandon coal and use oil. Such action
i- dictated by the first rule of
Lisiness economy. And if one
t.sanufacturer makes the change
i\X others in the same line of
business must speedily follow
i it; otherwise they will find
t., mselves operating under a
I iDidicap. And when fuel oil has
■G.: e attained a footing its general
adaption follows with the inevit-
at'i.ity of a»law of nature.
i t is therefore both futile and
Unjust to charge the users of oil
wui'i selfishness or malice or any
■evil intent. And while we are,
foi convenience, speaking parti-
c iiarlyofmanufacturers.itshould
be understood that these remarks
arc intended to apply equally to
transportation companies, public
service companies and, in fact, to
a:I users of oil.
1 i.e coal industry is like any
o'Jier industry in that production
must cease when there is no
longer an active demand for its
commodity. To a large extent
production has now ceased, which
-Sii-npiy means that the coal trade
\* b ing rapidly and thoroughly
ruined. That brings disaster upon
every trade and industry in the
pro/in'.a.
So   we  have the paradoxical
situation that the introduction of

cheap fuel has caused a general
all-round curtailment of output.
The man who uses fuel oil loses,
through the stagnation of business, more than he saves by the
lessening of his fuel bills. Yet
he is helpless in the matter. We
must assume that he realizes the
cause of the trouble, but he cannot revert to the use of coal as
long as oil remains at its relatively low price. He can hut hang
on and pray for the time-perhaps years distant—when the
ruined coal miners will be absorbed into other industries.
But the case wears an entirely
different complexion when there
is a serious and hopeful movement on foot to rehabilitate the
coal trade and our manufacturer
is found to he in active opposition
to that movement. Such a move
ment is now under way, viz., an
effort to prevail on the Dominion
Government to place a protective
import duty on fuel oil; which is
the only, possible means of salvation for coal.
We can exonerate the manufacturer from all blame in abandoning coal for oil; we can even
sympathize with him in the distressful results of the change.
But what are we to say when he
sets his face against the only
remedy? On the one hand he
shows himself careless of the distress of thousands of people who
are as much deserving of sympathy as he is. On the other
hand he hinders the return of
general prosperity, upon which
his own prosperity depends.
ln other words, he is a selfish
fool.
Preparation for the Future.
Extracts from a letter alleged
to have been sent by the German
Emperor to a personage connect- .
ed with the Bavarian Court are
reproduced in the Paris Matin as
follows: "Our only odject is a
peace profitable to the Get man
states. This peace may be concluded sooner than thought. If
it gave for the time being only
an incomplete result it would at
least serve as a preparation for
the future. It could be^signed
to-morrow if I wished. When my
august grandfather placed the
Empire on its present basis he did
not pretend to have realized a
complete work. The Empire is
susceptible of growth. What cannot be achieved to-day will be
achieved later." THE ISLANDER. CUMBERLAND, B.C.

NOXIOUS WEEDS
What undoubtedly constitutes
a menace to those farmers who
are making an honest effort to
keep their farms clean is the crop
of weeds found growing on
vacant lots and roadsides in and
around our towns and cities.
These vacant lots are often nothing more nor less than nurseries
and breeding places for all kinds
of weeds. This is especially true
of towns where large areas adjoining have subject to wildcat
subdivisioning and have had road
wajs ploughed, forming lodging
places for weeds which are allowed to grow unmolested. These
produce countless numbers of
seed, to be blown and scattered
by the winds over the farms. So
far, bulletins, articles, and advice
pertaining to weed control have
been directed at the farmer. A
glance at the conditions found in
most of our cities and towns will
prove convincing that the farmer
is not entirely to blame in the
matter of weed seed production
and distribution.
In the West the weed inspector are being trained and instructed along lines that will enable
them to assist the the farmers in
weed control, while at the same
time provision by law is made to
prevent any farmer from allowing his farm to become a breeding place for weeds and a menace.
to his neighbours. In most towns ■
there are by-laws covering the
weed problem but too often they
are not enforced. Those living
in towns and cities should cooperate and do their bit in the
war against weeds. This is an
important matter, and should receive strict attention by every
town council. Action should be
taken at once and not deferred
until the weeds ripen and scatter
their seeds.

Tarbell and Son.
ACTIVITY IN LOGGING
Mr. Michael Manson, M.P.P.,
of Union Bay, who represents
Comox in the Legislature, is in
the city, a guest at the Empress.
Asked how conditions were in his
district, Mr. Manson said the crop
outlook was fairly good, considering that there had to some extent
been a drought. Otherwise the
outlook is excellent. There is
much activity in the logging industry, more logging going on
this season than last year. In
respect to settlement there is
quite a demand for logged-off
land. The problem of land clearing is so difficult that rapid settlement of the virgin lands is not to
be anticipated. —Victoria Colonist
Advices reaching the Minister
of Lands concerning the fire situation throughout the province are
for the present satisfactory,
although the immediate prospects
uniess rain falls are rather ominous in certa n sections.
During the early part of the
past week rain fell in the Hazelton, Nelson, >anbrook, Vernon
and Kamloops Districts, as well
as in the eastern section of the
Fort George Division, followed
however by clear, warm weather,
with resulting increase in the fire
hazard. In the Tete Jaune District, conditions are reported as
being reasonably safe, in view of
the hot, dry, windy weather.
The prevailing heat accompanied by a clear atmosphere and
wind, with resultant drying out
of vegetation has been responsible
for several fires in the coast districts, outbreaks being reported
at North Vancouver, Langley,
Delta, Cheakamus, Half Moon
Bay, Texada Island, Toba Inlet,
Thurlow Island, Green Point
Rapids, and Loughboro Inlet, the
area burned over is approximately one thousand acres, principally
slashings, and the fire to merchantable timber fortunately
small.
Four fires, all under control,
have occurred in the Island District, two of which were at
Parks ville, and a third at Courtenay.
The policy of burning over
slash areas which has been pursued with such success this year,
largely under the direction or at
the suggestion of the Hon. W. R.
Ross's department, has undoubtedly led to fewer fires than would
have been the case otherwise,
and the larg. amount of land
cleared by settlers under permit
has also materially diminished
the fire danger.
A successful social and entertainment was given at the home
of Mr. Janes, of Grantham, last
Monday evening. A good number assembled, and ice cream and
raspberries and cream were disposed of. A good programme
was gone through, the different
artistes rendered their parts in
excellent style. Mr. R. Willough-
by, of Courtenay, acted as chairman. The proceeds amounted to
over thirty dollars, which will go
towards the new organ fund.
Now is the time to purchase
screen doors and window screens
before the hot weather comes on.
