CITY COUNCIL SEND
RESOLUTION TO OTTAWA
The City Council held a special
meeting on Friday evening to take
into consideration the rumor that the
British Columbia steamship companies were making overtures to tho Dominion government requesting the removal of the half-cent Import duty on
fuel oil. Realizing the Importance of
the move on the part of tho steamship
owners and tho effect Itwould have
upon the coal Industry of thla province, and especially Cumberland,
where we depend entirely upon the
one Industry, and that Is, the production of coal, the Council passed
Hie following resolution and forwarded a copy to the Hon. the Minister of
Finance and H. S. Clements, M.P.
The ressolution reads as follows:
Cumberland, B.C.,, May 12th, 1919.
At a time when the country Is crying out for employment for our returned soldiers the removal of duty
on fuel will destroy one of the large
employing Industries of British Colum
bla, throwing large numbers of men
out of employment and adding to the
present social unrest. Further, It will
reduce the Dominion Income by amount of tax on reduced tonnage of coal
sending money required ln upbuilding our own industries, to support
American industries.
The Cumberland City Council vigorously oppose any reduction of duty
on fuel oil.

SOLDIERS OS THE EA.MI
(From tbe Ottawa Journal.)
While there has been some natural
disappointment in parts of the western provinces on account of the difficulties iu the way of a speedy settlement ot* returned soldiers on the land,
we believe that generally the plans of
the Soldier Settlement Board are
working out well. During March and
April there was a rush of applicants
for the loan privileges offered by the
Board, and in some cases tlie western
offices were congested; but .Mr. Black,
Chairman of the Board, overcame the
difficulty by authorizing his representatives in the west to employ as many
temporary land inspectors as were
needed to pass upon the farms, for tbe
purchase of which loans were asked.
The number of applicants qualified
to go on tho land during tlie past
two months in the four western provinces is approximately 5,000. Thousands of returned veterans who have
hail farming experience eagerly seized
upon the opportunity to become land
owners under this scheme, thus confounding the false prophets who for
political reasons or otherwise have
been predicting confusion and faiulre,
and the reluctance on the part of
ex-service men to go back to the soil.
Tlie Soldier Settlement Board has
made a genuine effort to devise a
workable plan of settlement and put
it into operation without loss of time.
It realizes the necessity of Increasing
the volume of agricultural products
and adding to tho wealth of the nation.
It has also seen and grasped the opportunity to provide future homes
for many veterans of the great war,
under conditions of settlemen that are
hound to be productive of gratifying
results.
[I is, of course, impossible (o setde
during this year all those returned
men who have a desire to make farming their permanent occupation. But
good progress has been made, and the
seeding season will see a great many
men lately home from overseas operating their own farms. Many others
are planning to take advantage of
the agricultural training feature of
the scheme by attending courses at
training farms or engaging with selected farmers throughout the west, thus
adding to their store of capital and
experience. Those who begin their
life work in this way will have the
summer to look about them, make a
choice of the farms upon which they
desire to settle, and complete all arrangements for an early commencement of operations next year. This
will apply particularly to the soldiers
who are only now reaching Canada.
.Many of thorn wlll go on training
farms as students, or secure employment with selected farmers who desire
to assist in rehabilitating our soldier
heroes. They will he able to do this
because of the generous allowance
for subsistence for themselves and
their dependents which the Board
offers.
It is promised that considerable
areas of good land will be reserved
for selection by those who have not
yet returned. The Soldier Settlement
Board is making a survey of desirable
agricultural lands contained in forest
reserves and also grazing lands in
<ome parts of the west. Upon the result of these Investigations will depend whether there will be large
blocks Dominion Crown Lands close
lo railways open for settlement, but
in the meantime the majority of the
intending soldier settlers are selecting lands privately owned and asking
the Board to assist them in their purchase. These men are willing to pay
reasonable prices for Improved farms
in tho expectation that they have a
splendid chance of discharging the
debt that they must necessarily bear
for a few years at least.
The operations of the Board should
result in a very large Increase In
agricultural production and a very
substantial benefit to the soldiers who
are sincere in their purposes to make
a living out of the land.
WELLINGTON COLLIERIES
WIN SECOND CASE
A judgment for over $85,000 damages in favor of the Wellington Collier
ies against the Pacific Coast Coal
Mir.es, was filed by Mr. Justice Murphy on Saturday last. The trial of the
case was heard at Victoria.
"I think the plaintiff's case Is made
out that there was a deliberate taking
of coal with knowledge that it was
beyond plaintiff's boundary line." His
Lordship said In fixing the damages
at the rate of $3.25 a ton for 25.066
tons removed and 15 cents a ton for
23,516 tons of coal left iu place, but
which is now valueless.
Besides the Kaiser's large investments in essentially German corporations such as the Hhmburg-Amerlcan
Line and the Krupp Works at Essen,
which President Ebert's government
has pledged itself to safeguard, he
owned a great deal of property on this
side of the Atlantic at the beginning
of the war. ln the names of certain
young Prussian nobles he hold millions of acres of land in central and
western Canada, and he had large
holdings in the Pennsylvania and the
New York Central railways and ln the
United States Steel Corporation. If is
to he regretted that by cleverly transferring the nominal ownership of
those properties from Canada to the
United States and from the United
States to Argentina he has kept thtm
out of the hands of both the Canadian
government and the United States
government.—Youths'  Companion.

DON'T BANG YOUR RECEIVER!
.... Banging the receiver on the hook in the midst of
the other person's genial "Good-bye," is like slamming
the door on a departing guest. Don't think he fails to
hear its clatter or misunderstand its significance.
The telephone is a delicate instrument; otherwise
it would not register the human voice. It merits careful handling; thereon largely depends its satisfactory
working. And, ust as important to the user, the all-
important impressions which he makes by telephone
—whether in or out of business hours—depend in great
measure on the consideration he shows other people,
up to the lsat faint click that should end the connection.
