11. Bates, of Cumberland, umpired
in ti very efficient manner giving satisfaction to both players and spectators.
We have been favored with tho
above cut of the sports field at Union
Bay where this years Colliery employees' picnic will be held. Tbe Union
Bay delegation tried very hard las:
year to have the sports held at the
shipping point, hut did noi meet with
much .success. The same delegation
was present at this year's meeting
and put forth their claims in favor
of Union Bay once more, with the
result that it was decided that tho
shipping place would get the picnic
this year. A lot of Cumberland people have heen carried away with the
idea that there is no shade at the
field at Union Bay. hut a perusal of
the above plan will readily show that
quite a lot of shade is available right
at the field. As will be noticed, trees
are on three sides of the Held witit
seats on two sides mid the usual
kiddles' novelties will also be erected, swings, merry-go-round .etc The
quoitfng pitch is just oiUside tho
sports field, but within easy reach
and the usual dressing rooms, will
also be easy of access. A special
parking space for ears has also been
provided, as parking oil the held will
be   absolutely   prohibited.
In view of tbe Tact that In previous
years certain persons secured benefits from the annual picnic in the
form of refreshments tor kiddles when
they most certainly were not entitled
to Ihem. the committee bus decided to
issue kldies refreshments tickets at
the various departments where pay
statements are issued.
This issue will be made on Wednesday, July 17th, and married men are
requested to make application for
tickets for their wives and children
on  that date.
For the purpose of this notice, single mon who are supporting their widowed mothers will be considered as
married men nml the issue of tickets
will be made accordingly.
Your whole-hearted assistance in
this matter Is earnestly solicited, -is
we tire desirous of giving you a full
100 per cent satisfaction.
Absolutely tin kiddles refreshment*
tickets will be issued on the picnic
grounds, and no person or persons
will he served with any refreshments
unless the said refreshment tlckolH
nre     presented     ill     tlie     I rl'rshtllelit.,
When applying or tickets in Hie

In tin- vicinity of Campbell Itiver. PAGE TWO
The Cumberland Islander
FROM all parts of Canada there are satisfactory reports concerning the high level of
business activity, although there are a few
lines, such as automobiles, where the mid-summer
recession Is beginning to be felt. Building contracts for the firsl five months of thi year exceeded tho highl records made in 1H28: iron and steel
production is al a maximum, and flour mills are
turning out a larger volume than in recent years.
Tho mining statistics for tho first quarter of the
year show a substantial gain over the record attained in 1928, and forecasts for initil production
lor tho year are optimistic. Although the recent
fall in ilo price of wheat has made dealers in
semi-luxury products somewhat cautious, the
actual volume ot' distribution in lho early pari of
thr your has o xceptionally satisfactory.
As yel ii i- lo early i" forecasl agricultural
prospects for 'lit' '■ml <>i the year, The return of
the farmer depends upon quantity ami (.'nolo as
well as tho price.. The outcome oi' crops in other
pans of the v irld, a contributing factor of major
importance, is too much a matter of circumstance
to warranet undin pessimism concerning Canada's
prospects for nexl year. In case the West should
have an unprofitable year for wheat, there are
circumstances which will tend to mitigate tho
effect of sucha misfortune upon ihe value of
trade. In lhe lirst place, I lie past four years have
placed the farmer in a relatively more satisfac-
ments throughout th.. worlil may he brought about.
Althougl the Government is not in a position to command a majorit: over ;'li. there appears in be no disposition on the ii.iii oi either opposition party to score unless some very vital matter he Involved.   It is recognized
| tory position to s.and tho strain of a period of adversity; in the second place, farming is of less
relative importance i;i Canadian economy as a
whole than before the war. With the growth in
importance of mining, and the extension of the
pulp and paper industry which is now in a much
more satisfactory position than last year, together with diversification in general manufacturing
Canadian industry is much more stable than in
the past. Early crop reports indicate that Canadian crops are making good progress and crop
conditions may lie considered normal for this time
I of year.

Golden Wedding
(Continued from Page One)
the Rev. G. L. Bourdillon called the
gathering to order and conveyed congratulatory messages trom the Victoria
Deanery and from the Bishop of Columbia who regretted his inability to
attend the function owing to being in
hospital undergoing an operation. Mr.
Willemar .said he had also received a
congratulatory message from the Lieutenant-Governor.
Mr. Bourdillon then called upon
Mayor Pear.--'', ol Courtenay, who said
it was not often a mayor had the opportunity oi taking part in a golden
wedding celebration during his year of
ofhee. He said it was a very great
pleasure to he there on behalf of the
city of Courtenay and district to convey congratulations and yood wishes to
Mr. and Mrs. Willemar and thanks for
(the part they had taken in developing
: and bringing thc dislrict to what It
1 was to-day. They all appreciated, said
Mr. Pearse, what they owed to the old
: pioti'- irs of tlie district and they recognized the fact that the present state
they had reached was due to the early
tiers the majority ot whom came to
: take up land and tarn their living as
[ farmers, There was great credit and
I honor due them but there was greater
j honor due to one who came as a pioneer parson, who had not come to carve
! a farm out of the hush but came to
1 help others.
They knew by repute, said the May
or. that Mr. and Mrs. Willemar were
always doing what they could for their
neighbors and the district ever since
they came here. They rejoiced with
them   that   they   were  in  such  good

I health and spirits and he hoped that
i £ nr many years they would continue
the same good health,
'■ Archdeacon Laycock was then called
upon and said that when he was ask-
cl by the committee to come up and
! speak at tlie celebration he felt he had
, heen given a great honor. It had been
his privilege to follow Mr. Willemar in
the parish. Mr. Willemar had been in
1 charge for forty-one years while he
.had been sent to another charge after
only three and one half years and he
thought it was harder to stay a long
| lime in one parish than a short time.
i Mr. Willemar. said the Archdeacon,
j could he called a builder of churches.
He had first built tlie 'little white
j church on the lull" at Sandwick. then
the church at Comox and the one at
Cumberland.. He reminded those present that at the close of Mr. Willemar s
long ministry it had been felt that
some memorial of his incumbency
should be made so they had put a
carved oaken chair in the church and
lie asked that whenever they looked
upon this chair they should remember
in whose honor it was there.
In liis interesting way. the Archdeacon then told of the good work of
Mr. Willemar in the district and the
energy with which he undertook the
work, one of his experiences being a
trip through to Alberni to spread the
gospel ai a lime there was neither
trail nor road. On behalf of the committee he then presented Mr. and Mrs.
Willemar with r. purse ot gold and he
| also presented a token of appreciation
om thi1 clergy ui the diocese.
Mr. T. Beckensell was then called
I upon to present the address. Mr.
Beckensell said it was a great privilege to him to have that honor. He
Iliad known Mr. Willemar for the past
fifty-seven years, in fact he was one
I oi the six men now living who had
come to the district prior to his own
arrival in lHTii.   These six men were
Beach, who came in 1866; Mr. A. Ur-
I quhart and Mr. Willemar. who came
!in 1871 and Mr. Jos. McPhee. who came
'a little later.   Mrs. Dingwall had arrived in 1870 and Mrs. Beach in 1872.
!    Mr. Beckensell then went on to tell
jof what they had to contend with in
! those early days, particularly in  the
j matter of road building and how difficult it was, as compared to the pre-
| sent time, to gel about the parish. But
Mr. Willemar was not  only a faithful
minister but he was a  hard worker.
Besides his parish work he kepi his
cows and chickens and always had a
good garden.    Mr. Beckensell. on behalf of the committee, then presented
the  following  address,  beautifully  illuminated:
"The Rev. Jules  Xavicr  Willemar
and   Mrs.   Willemar
July 1st 1H7H - July 1st 1929
"On the occasion nf the fiftieth
anniversary   of   your   wedding   we
wish   to  express   our   esteem   and
afTertlun for you aud extend congratulations.
"During your long ministry in
the Comox District from 1871 to
1913, you were always ready with
a kind word and helping hand to
all pioneers from the day you designed and built St. Andrew's
church until you retired to take
your well-earned  rest.
"It Is the sincere hope of all of
us that you will long remain in
our midst."
Mr. Bourdillon paid tribute to the
kindly sympathy extended to him by
Mr. Willemar in the two years he had
been in the parish. There was never
any criticism and he considered it a
high honor to carry on the work so
well and truly laid.
A beautiful wedding bouquet was
presented to Mrs. Willemar by little
Miss Cooke.
Mr. Willemar was visibly affected
when he rose to respond. He said
they were all there because they were
his friends. He had always tried to
make friends and keep them and the
day was one of the happiest days of
his life seeing so many friends around
him. A golden wedding, he said, was
a great thing in a man's life. They
had all come of their own free will and
were doing everything to make the day
a successful and happy event because
they were his friends. He thanked the
mayor and the archdeacon for what
they had said about him but he didn't
know he had done all the things they
said he had done. In all his life he
had never seen a crowd of people looking so happy and so bright to his eyes.
It was the best sight he had ever seen
and this was because they felt they
were doing a good work in making an
old couple happy but they had done
nothing to deserve it; they had always
lived a simple life amongst them trying to put more enjoyment into the
lives of the people amongst whom they
lived. His hobby had been to meet
the people as friends, not as parishioners, sharing their joys and sorrows.
There was a saying. "Cast thy bread
upon the waters and it will return to
you after many days," 'and that bread
was now returning in kind words and
kind deeds.
He accepted the presents as tokens
of their friendship. He humorously
related that when he said he had been
married tor fifty years he had bcen
told he deserved a medal, but if he

Dinah Shurey's story deals wilh Ihe lives of two boys
born in vastly different stations of life. One is the son
of tin admiral, the other the son of a fisherman. A
friendship grows up between Ihem and they become
inseparable. It is the story of good clean, wholesome
youths welding together that inseparable friendship.
There are no hectic love scenes, no bitter quarrels.
The bo yslove and marry, each in their own sphere.
They go their various ways, one to his fishing, the
other to the senior service as an officer.
Then war clouds gather and both rejoice that they may
serve their country, together perhaps in the same ship.
Bu something happens. The fisherman, to save the
honour of his friend, sacrifices his own good name,
the esteem of his friends, and then life itself. This he
does just as many Britishers have.
