PROCEEDINGS OF THE
COUNCIL MEETING
The City Council held their usual
session in the Council Chamber on
Tuesday evening instead of Monday
(Labor Day), and Charles Parnham
was voted to the Chair in the absence
of His Worship Mayor Macdonald.
Aid. Pickard, Maxwell, Thomson and
Beveridge were present.
City Clerk Mordy read the telegram received from Ladysmlth ln connection with the recent disaster,
which appeared ln The Islander of
Sept. 2nd. He also read a copy of
the Mayor's reply ,as follows:
August 31st, 1922.
W. W. Walkem, Esq.,
Mayor, Ladysmlth, B. C.
Dear Mr. Walkem,—I am ln receipt
of your kindly wire of to-day, conveying the deep sympathy of the citizens
of Ladysmlth with the sufferers of
the recent disaster nt our No. 4 Mine,
and on their behalf I thank you most
sincerely, not only for the humane
sentiments which Inspired it, but also
for the promptness with which you
proterred your service if needed.
Although the disaster has, I regret
to say, taken a toll of 14 dead and 14
Injured, some of the latter very
seriously, our local doctors, hospital
and nursing staff proved to be equal
to tbe emergency, and whilst sustained by tbe knowledge that help
such as yours was readily waiting our
call if needed, we are thankful such
need did not arise.
With kindest wishes from tbe citizens ot Cumberland, believe me
Sincerely yours,
D. R. Macdonald,
The Aldermen, after passing remarks of appreciation at the prompt
action of the Mayor of Ladysmlth,
ordered the telegram and copy of reply filed.
A letter was received from the Deputy Minister of Finance of Victoria,
containing a cheque for $530.66, being
Cumberland's share of the motor tax
profits, and informing the Council
that this amount was to be applied to
the maintenance of public highways.
ThlB  was also received and  Died.
Several communications were received from the Safety Signal Co. with
reference to reflectors for the various
intersections ot Dunsmuir Avenue.
Such reflectors, If, Installed would
show a danger warning to approaching automobiles after midnight. A
discussion ensued, some ot the aldermen contended that the electric lights
at Intersections of Dunsmuir Avenue
should burn all night, especially at
Third and Fourth Streets. Others
contended that a light should be
placed at either end of the boulevard
between Third and Fourth Streets
and placed on a pedestal about 8 feet
high, with a solid concrete foundation.
The question of lighting Dunsmuir
Avenue from midnight until daylight
was ultimately laid over for two
weeks without taking any definite line
of action.
Accounts as follows were referred
to the Finance Committee for payment:
Thomas   Mordy  $ 60.00
A. J. Merry   110.00
James Balrd   130.00
J. J. Potter     64.00
H. Strachan     60.20
C. H. Tarbell       7.60

Workmen's Comp. Board     34.12
Comox Shingle Co    66.65
(■cargo Lelghton     37.26
J.   Fearn     14.00
Frank Dallos, proprietor of the
Waverley Hotel, was present aud Informed the Acting Mayor and Aldermen that the alleyway between Dunsmuir and Penrith Avenues was a very
dark lane and needed a light. The
Acting Mayor told Mr. Dallos that to
place lights in the alleyway would
take no small amount ot money, as
tbe wire bad now been laid for the
main streets.
Aid. Pickard supported Mr, Dallos
In his contention for a light in the
alleyway. Several boarders ot the
hotel had spoken to him concerning
it. Aid. Maxwell did not see how the
alleyway ln question had any preference over any other within the city
limits.
Aid. Beveridge said it's a case of
lighting all the alleyways ln the city
If you supply light to this particular
alley.
It was left In the hands of tho
Lighting Committee to report.
Alex. McKlnnon, secretary of the
Board of School Trustees, was present
ln support of the application for $1,200
as part payment of the new steam-
heating plant to be Installed in the
Cumberland Public Schools.

Council by City Clerk Mordy:

FIRST TIME EVER"
SHOWN IN B. C.
"In the Name of the Law," at
ihe Ilo-llo Theatre on Friday
and Saturday.
Corporal Cope, of the Royal Mounted Police, laid an Information against
Ma Shu and Wong Sal Tong, of Chinatown, charging them with being inmates of an opium den. They were
found guilty and fined $10 and costs.
At least one feature about this production Is strikingly different. Burlesque, which has long been considered ludlspensable In connection
with screen portrayals of. the American policeman, Is entirely absent.
Here ts a sincere human treatment of
the side of lite ot which the public
usually hears nothing. This should
mean very definite success tor the picture with the entire brass-buttoned
tribe, as well aa the not Inconsiderable number ot those who have always been In close sympathy with
the tollceman and Els troubles. The
policeman and hla family are the
principals and the emphasis on loyalty
and affection ln the home Is the first
motive. This Is evident at the start,
where one Is drawn Into the atmosphere with that peculiarly Intimate
feeling that he is a privileged spectator amid the experiences of an interesting household.
A scene that has been conceived and
handled with skill is the bank robbery which culminates In the father
shootlug his own son under the mistaken impression that he has run
down the culprit. The trial that follows Is another successful dramatic
achievement. The cast is commendable for the whole-souled interest
which each displays, and together
with the director, deserves credit for
the naturalness of the performance.
Young Son Of Mark Coe
Drowned Sunday Last
Don't forget the C. A. O. S,
Concert in the Ilo-llo on Sunday.
A sad drowning fatality occurred"
on Sunday evening last about 6.30.
when Clarance, tho three-year-old son
ot Mr. and MrB. Mark Coe. of 8ecoud
Street, Cumberland, fell off the float
used by Mr. Amlerson as a landing-
place for the numerous boats which
Mr. Anderson hns plying up and down
the lake. Young Clarance was playing around the bench with other children. Mr. Anderson was busy getting
his boat ready for a sail up the lake,
Intending to take Mrs. Mark Coe (his
stster-ln-law) and a few friends for
u short journey on the lake. When
nil was ready to start, It was found
that Clarance was nowhere In sight,
nud alter a frantic search the little
chap was found lying In about 6 leu
ot water, evidently having wandered
on to the float and fallen in unobserved. Mr. W. Beveridge, Mr. Geo.
Richardson, and Mrs. Bunbury, all
members of St. John's Ambulance
Association, rendered first aid, and n
hurry-up call sent to Dr. Hicks. Upon
Ihe doctor's arrival, and after a thorough examination life was pronounced
oxtlnct. Constable Dunbar arrived
shortly after the doctor and took
charge of the body, ordering Its ro.
movnl to the T. B. Banks undertaking
parlors. Coroner Balrd viewed the
body and decided an Inquest was not
necessary. The funeral took place

QUIET WEDDING
OF POPULAR COUPLE
St. George'B Presbyterian Church
wns the scene of a very pretty wedding on Thursday morning, when the
Rev. James Hood united In marring,1
Mr. F. 11. Ells and Miss Elizabeth
Crlghton, The bride, who Is a nlec?
of Mrs. Yates, of Bevan, wore her
travelling suit of navy blue broad

'.lrnped with white embroidered veil,
and an ermine stole. Her bouquet
•.vas whlto carnations and ferns. Tha
mold of honor. Mrs Malpas, was
dressed In gold satin piped wtlh white,
with gold slippers and ermine stole,
and white hat. and carried a bouquet
ol pink carnations nud ferns. The
groom was osslted hy his brother,
Mr. W. D. Ells, of Vancouver. After
Hip wedding breakfast at Bevan, Ihe
happy couple led by auto tor Vlctort.1
and Seattle.
Liquor Board prosecutor had failed
to show that the alleged offences had
liiken place within the territorial
Jurisdiction of Jhe Court. An appeal
In each case was^later eutered by tho
prosecution, and the same case came
on for hearing before His Honoi
Judge Barker.
The proreeution was again unlucky
enough to bave the cases dismissed,
on the objection raised by the defence that It was not proved by the
prosecution tbat tbe Informant-
uppellaut was a person "aggrieved"
nor that he was in any way representing the Crown.
Mr. Arthur Lelghton appeared for
the prosecution.
Messrs. P. P. Harrison and W. P.
Grant represented all the accused.
The prosecution were keenly disappointed In again losing out In regard
to these cases, and Intimated that
Ihey would carry the matter to tbe
Court of Appeal. If such an appeal
Is taken and the prosecution is successful, it will mean that all tho
cases will have to come before Judge
Barker again, thus affording the defence an opportunity of again presenting technical objections with
which they seem to bo well supplied.

In   the   first   Boccer   game  of   the'
season, absolutely  devoid  of  thrills,
Ladysmith defeated Cumberland by a
score 1-0 lu the last   three  minutes.
As an exhibition of football, It was
about one oi the tamest ever seen ou
the  local grounds.    The Cumberland
earn .nt- capable of playing much superior ball than they dished   up   ou
Sunday last.   They had easily throe-
ouitiiB  of   Ihe   play, and only poor
.lnishlpg touches robbed them of an
■ uipieen goal victory.    As an indlca-
tlon ot how the play went, Boyd only
handled the ball about 4 times during
.he   whole   90  minutes;   whilst  the
' ndysuiith goalie was kept busy plac-
ng the ball for goal kicks.   It seemed
.o be as though there were a hundred
;onl kicks during the second period,
'laying with the sun1 against them in
he first half, the visitors worked up
o Boyd like a flash; a goal kick re-
ultlug.   From then on, right  up   to
half-time,   Cumberland    monopolized
:he play, but could not find the goal.

lerling work of Kenny at centre-half
tept   them  from  getting  dangerous.
ie    was   ably   assisted   by   the  two

On resuming the Becond half, Ladysmlth did not come up to expectations,
as the locals kept up a veritable bom-
.iirduie.it; but tlielr final efforts were
•Hior. Time and time again Kenny put
the forwards going, but they could do
anything but score; the Ladysmith defence evidently having the proverbial
horse-shoes with them. Charlie Hitchens had one great drive at goal,
only to see the visitors goalie knock
it down tint-handed, and before any
of the forwards had time to follow up.
the visiting backs kicked clear. Milligan and Patterson, on the right, on
veveral occasions, worked nicely together, but only goal kicks resulted.
Milligan had a nice attempt at goal,
tricking a couple of the defenders, but
bis final shot lacked speed; the goalie
listing clear. During the closing few
minutes the visitors broke away, and
from a melee In front of goal, the
ball was literally poked through.
Three minutes later the whistle went
for full time.
Jock Orr, tor the visitors, played a
great game; also the goalie, wbo appeared to be ln the right place at the
right time. The two outside forwards
ulso played a real good game, show
ing lots of speed and always willing
to tackle anything. For the home
team, Kenny was easily the pick, being the best on the field. Faulds, the
new right-half, was a little weak:
whilst Sackl was absolutely off-color.
Brewster, Milligan and Hitchens were
the pick of the forwards. After last
Sunday's game, we are ot the opinion
that Brewster, moved Into the halfback line, and foots Plump brought
Into the inside-left position, that a
much better balanced Bide would be
tbe result.

There Is no doubt the locals lacked

The-visitors had rather a veteran
goalie, to say the least, who looked
good between the sticks.
It's Bevan and Cumberland now

rTq most people, the connecting or disconnecting of a Telephone seems a simple
operation of installing or removing the
instrument. As a matter of fact, in every
case it necessitates changes in the cables
and wires overhead or underground. It also necessitates changes in Central Office wires and switchboard
fro mopen wires or cables. The problems of station
connections; in subscribers' accounts and directory
listings; and frequenCv requires new "drop" lines
from open wires or cables. The problems of station
movement are among the large problems of telephone
service. Because of the double operation of disconnecting and* reconnecting, the work involved is often
twice as great as in the case of new subscribers;

On Friday laBt at the Puntledge

marriage to Mr. Reveley Berkeley, of

ter ot the bridegroom, acted as bridesmaid, while Mr. William Berkeley
supported his brother, the bridegroom,
The ceremony was performed by the
Rev. ThOB. Menzles, M.P.P., a longtime friend of the bridegroom's family.
Mr. and Mrs. Berkeley were the recipients of many handsome presents
and many messages of good will were
received from friends wbo were unable to be present. Mr. Berkeley Is
one of Comox Valley's popular native
sons, being a member ot one of the
oldest families In the district. Mr.
and Mrs. Berkeley will reside at

Tom Booth and George Edwards left
for the Capital city Thursday morning
with the grandest display of agricultural produce that ever left Comox
Valley. If optimism and enthusiasm
account for anything the results of
the mission to Victoria can easily be
forecast. The annual Fall Fair held
at Courtenay was a success financially
as well as from an exhibition stand-
polnl, and In consequence the association, which was six hundred dollars
in debt on tbe first of tho month, owes
less than half that amount at the present tlrao. ThlB eminently satisfactory result was attained by the herculean efforts put forward by the two
citizens who carried the secretarial
and managerial duties, and a host of
volunteer helpers who, realizing what
sort of a problem the new officers
were up against and the --influences
that had to be counteracted, rallied
with the greatest spontanlety around
the association banner and put over
the Valley's biggest yearly event. The
Ladles' Auxiliary lent Invaluable aid
and as a result of their work will
bond over to the directors of the Comox Agricultural and Industrial Association the sum ot one hundred and
thirty dollars. Some of the members
nf the auxiliary were early at the hall
nn Fair day and remained until after
midnight, taking care of the refreshments ln the afternoon and for the
dance at night.
This Is a showing of courage and
spirit tbat may well be emulated
throughout the length and breadth of
Comox Valley. The annual general
meeting will take place shortly when
n full financial statement regarding
the Fall Fair will be presented.

ACCOMMODATION OF
HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS
A solution seems to have been found
for the vexed question of sccommoda
lion for High School pupils who llvi
outside the boundaries of tho Courte
nay school district. A meeting ol
those directly Interested was held or
Saturday last with the Courtenay
School Board, and an ariangeuien
lhe Government will pay forty per
has practically been made whereby
cent of the added oust of taking care
ot pupils coming from outside tbe
present prescribed school urea. Tin
parents of pupils directly Interested
will pay the balance of sixty per cent
It Is also understood thai a move has
been made towards the erection of an
enlarged school area, lhe taxes from
which will go towards tbe maintenance of the High School in Courtenay
for the entire district from perhaps
Unlon Bay to Oyster or Campbell
River. By some this Is looked upon
as a move in the right direction, and
may eventually be looked upon as u
serious move lu an effort to have p
consolidated school area. In the
minds of some liter" seems to be nn
reason why the extended High School
area should not cover pupils of the
graded schools as well. But this Is
another phase of the school question
which will lu time be taken care of
just as the High School question has
been answered.
of a fund-raising campaign, a motor
iruck was purchased at a cost of approximately two thousand dollars.
ihe money came from individual subscriptions, and as rewards from entertainments and dances. Who will forget the splendid concert rendered two
months ago by the Courtenay-Arden
troupe, the proceeds from which went
towards paying off the indebtedness
against the truck. The slogan has always been: "It's to pay for the truck"
and that object has been achieved.
The Iruck acquired, a place must be
prepared in which to house it. So tho
campaign went merrily on. The city
purchased Ihe lumber for the building, but there was no money available to pay for labor on construction.
Faced with this problem, the boys ot
the department set about the construction work themselves. Wednesday afternoons, summer evenings,
when must people were working In
their gardens at home or strolling
along tbe river bank, they worked.
Some other volunteers have assisted,
and now the home of tbe truck has so
far advanced that it rests in its permanent home, ready for action as
soon as the alarm of lire Is sounded.
The labors ot the members have not
halted here, for It Is their intention
to complete the second story of the
building and equip it as a gymnasium.

WHAT SHALL WE Jit) Willi
THE BOYS?
HOORAY !
greatest problem oi the age I
**j do with the boys.    No one
In a hundred   has   any   Idea
with Tommy  when h
Thi
wh»?
pan-:
wh'at   to   do
leaves school.
A policy ot drm—and the current
sometimes lands us ou the rocks and
Bometlmes In a fair haven, But the
future career ot «r sons Is really too
important a mat;er to be treated after
this haphazard fashion, and It 13 about
lime that parents woke up to the fact.
We believe that the choice of oc
cupatlon for a boy should be made
earlv, not in order that specialisation
stoul:i begin early, but lu order that
no Bteps shall be taken In n wrong
direction. A little forethought would
prevent much waste of time.
Before making any attempt to de
clde what a boy should be, a number
ot separate factors must be consider
ed, such as his disposition, his capacity, his limitations and especially tils
financial circumstances and the num
ber aud character of influential
friends. To put a boy into one's own
business, or Into tbat of a friend,
without considering the boy's char
acter Is merely to court disaster; to
put him into n profession without
adequate financial backing Is to create
a tragedy.
All careers are roughly divisible Into three cltuses:
1. Indoor careers—those connected
with tho Civil :'"rvlee, Clerks of all
descriptions, Accountants, Bankers,
Solicitors, Barristers, Dentists, School
masters, etc.
If. Outdoor careers—Soldiers, Sail
ors, Farmers, Planters, and other occupations connected with the land
such as Forestry and Ranching.
3. Partly Indoor and partly outdoor — Clergymen, Doctors, Land
Agents, Architects, Surveyors and
Engineers.
Now, almost the Ilrst thing to be
settled Is whether a boy Is of such a
disposition that be prefers indoor or
outdoor lite. Fancy chaining the pioneer Instinct to a desk, or setting the
plough fields. It may be that financial
circumstances will Interfere with a
lad following his natural bent, but
his chances of success are greatest If
his occupation is lii accord with his
'suiperament.
Engineering uud Murine Work.
One of the commonest mistakes tbat
parents make is to send their sons
Into various branches of Engineering
limply because they are quick with
their fingers. The boy can construct
model aeroplanes or locomotives and
knows hov; to repair electric bells
am. fuses—therefore, let him be an
engineer. This kind of manual dexterity will produce a skilful mechanic,
but not an engineer, nnd the wages of
a mechanic ore not so great us to be
a prize worth striving for. The truth
of the mutter is that the first requirement for an engineer is pronounced
mathematical ability, The man 'who
makes money aa an engineer is he
Who works with his brain, not he who
labours with his bands.
The hundreds of dtl'i'ks employed ln
banks, railways umi insurance office?,
arc usually without ambition and their
pay h prt portlonately low. But there
are 1 undreds of good posts for those
who.deliberately aim ut getting them
Where so many young clerks fall II
in being oontont with doing their
r'riitiiii' work satisfactorily, They d(
nc qualify by examination for blghc:
post How ninny bunk clerks, foi
Instance, puss the examination of tin
Bankers' Institute?
The ordinary commercial clerk has
apparently, the poorest outlook, and
yet. he has only to take his life
seriously to hope for n good berth.
There la nn initial period of drmi
gery, licking stamps, copying letters
and going- errand';, hut he who Is
faithful in little things frequently
finds himself entrusted with greater
responsibilities. The man who thinks
work drudgery; he who Is dreamy;
and Is always changing from one
firm to another, has a possible
maximum of $l,5no a year. But there
are buyers In hie city houses getting
t-MOO and $r,,HWi n year because they
understand their business and are nol
afraid of work.
The Imperial Oil Co, have Just completed plans for the erection of ,i huge
refinery to be built In South-east Calgary. The refinery Is lo cost In the
neighbourhood of 12,000,000, uud the
construction work upon It will employ from three to five hundred men
continuously for six io eight months,
"All aboard!"   Clang, clang!
He mounts the steps of the moving
train, BiaUes at the Utile woman
-Lauding by the track, and with a
,va,-? of the hand, is gone—ou his
,-ay ;o ill? northern wilds and rocky
ways.
The Utile woman, who happens to
e iiis wife, tunis aud walks briskly
oward the little cottage called home.
:he doesn't walk as one dejected, but
er bit-ps are quick ones—yes, really
she smiles, and why not? Her hus-
•jaud's "gone to the country." He'll
.e gone for two whole weeks.
Certainly she loves him and all
hat, but—well, we Imagine she feels
i little like the workman, who, after
Bight hours of steady toll, hears the
.ive o'clock whistle.
In fancy we see her enter the house,
which naturally seems still, and
.oiiely, and "spooky," and a little
iump rises in her throat; and then
die calls up a friend and they make
i dale for  the picture show, to see
lina Normadge (whom ber husband
lisllues thoroughly), and after that
ihe resolves to have the very kind ol
ate supper that she is so fond of and
.hat her man can not digest. And put
jii ber bedroom slippers and lounge
and read and go to bed leaving the
'Iglit on, and eat her breakfast In bed,
whenever she gets 'good and ready.'
But she's going to miss him, ai
..lines, and wish he were around.
And when she goes to bed at night
die will wonder what be is doing
away oil up there, and hope he doesn't
get hurt, or fall 111 the lake, or gel
ilck -for If be did, he might have tc
mine home before the two weeks are
.tone, and spoil HER vacation.
THE GRIND.
You have heard of the grind of tho
.lewspaper olllce. and we know by
.ong experience that being 111 the
lewspaper business means being
'iusy. It always rubs us the wrong
vay to have some hulking loafer drop
Into the sanctum, park himself on top
if our desk and grin us he says:
"The editor sat In his easy chair."
I there is any easy editor's chair,
we've never found It.
The work Is never over ln a newspaper olllce. The news Is never all
in. the type never all distributed, the
mall Is never all delivered, before
lew news has to be handled, new
types hove to be set, new malls diB-
.iiitched.
When a person has a job In a newspaper office he need never be unemployed. He can work his fool self
o death if he half wants to. This Is
is true In the office of The New York
Howler as it is in the office of The
Islander,
Being in the newspaper business
neans to wonder if being in the army
if the unemployed Is really as bad
is It is represented. Not to have
■iniii'thiiig to do that must be done on
schedule time looks like a peach of a
lob lo the newspaper employee, and
it ill becomes any political loafer to
stand around and sing; "The editor
sits In his easy chair."
WE'RE DONE.
Yes, sir. we-ve had enough!
The Islander henceforth will do its
ah censoring and the people who do
not like the way we do it can go elsewhere.
Nature gave us a pretty strong
stomach. We may swear now and
then; we *moke aud go to baseball
games; aud we do a lot of things
that may seem questionable, but we
know when we bave enough of some
things.
If Mrs. So-and-So applies for a divorce we will tell you about tt, bul
Die details make ub sick and we will
not recount them.
Stories of crimes and spicy trials
have their place. But It we do handle
them they are not going to come trom
the Press all gummed up with filth.
It Is not our Intention to conduct
a prudish sheet, but one that ts honest
tnd one that will give our readers
the fresh local news, without being
foul.
Some stories cannot be bandied
(rtthout a wealth of revolting details
-without smearing the reader with
evil-smelling  mistiness.
We know that slimy mud produces
the beautiful Illy—but we are not
florists.
Perhaps we are cynical—but we
can't for the life ot us see how It Is
■,'olng to benefit you folks to have us
pry Into the secret recesses of some-
jody's spul and convert our discovery
Into news.
We take it for granted your home
Is respectable and we are not going
to force any of this filthy news Into
it through the columns of this paper.
We're through!
DOES IT PAY TO WORRY
AHOUT APPENDICITIS?
Can appendicitis be guarded against?
Yes, by preventing Intestinal infection. The Intestinal antiseptic, Alder-
i-ka, acts on BOTH upper and lower
bowel, removing ALL foul, decaying
matter which might start infection.
EXCELLENT for gas on stomach or
chronic constipation. It removes matter which you never thought was In
your system and which nothing else
can dislodge. One man reports It Is
unbelievable the awful Impurities
Adler-1-ka brought out. R. E. Frost,

A GOOD NAME.
One of the purest and most enduring of human pleasures Is lo be found
in the possession of a good name
among one's neighbours and nctiualnt-
ances.
This Is not fame, or even distinction; Ii Is local reputation among the
few scores or hundreds of persons
vho really know one. It Is a satisfaction qniit' of this world, and one obtained by large numbers of unlet men
and women whose names are never
mentioned beyond the limits of their
■ospectlve sets of acquaintance. Such
'cputatioti regards not mental power
ir manual skill, but character; It Is
lowly built upon purity. Integrity,
coinage und sincerity. To possess II
Is a crowning satisfaction which Is
iflenest experienced to the full rather
ate In life when some other pleasures
•'gin lo fade away.
—Dr. Charles W. Eliot.
Of course, polygamy Is dreadful.
nt an Orlentul wife can at. least
'int.' within four or five guesses of
nowlng where he spends bis evenings.

OVERTIME RULING
BY MINISTER OF
LABOR CRITICIZED
VICTORIA.- -That overtime was to
be paid on Saturday afternoons when
there was a single shift but not when
there were two shifts per day, was the
ruling of the Federal Minister of Labor given out at a meeting of the
Trades and Lubor Council. This announcement had special reference to
the recent dispute as to work on the
drydock here. Fair Wage Officer
Bulger, of Vancouver, wns present
during the discussion.
The Council went on record as reaffirming its stand that the local custom of the trade, as ln the drydock
work, should prevail. The custom
here, It was stated, was for a 44-hour
week—with overtime beyond that
period—and it was the lirst time on
record that a Federal Minister of
Labor had ruled against the custom
of the district, as applied to the dry-
dock work now being carried on here.
Tbe Victoria Medical Society wrote
stating that It was ready to name a
committee to act with the Trades and
Labor Council on the matter of an
appeal from the medical referee of
the Workmen's Compensation Board
to an independent medical board.
PROCEEDINGS OF
CITY COUNCIL
(Continued from Page One)
the City Council were fully aware of
the facts, Aid. Beveridge moved that
a cheque for $1,200.00 be forwarded
to the Education Department at once;
Aid. Maxwell seconded the motion,
which was carried.
The Thomson ash-heap was again
on the table. It Is a $19 account due
the city for hauling ashes, which the
City Clerk up to the present haa been
unable to collect; being somewhat
complicated. The property changed
hnnds at the time the city team hauled
the ashes away. Some of the aldermen said Thomson should pay; while
others said the city team had plenty
of work without hauling ashes. The
matter was left without any definite
action being taken.
Acting Mayor Parnham said the
City finances were ln a healthy con
dltlon.
Chairman Thomson, of the Board
of Works, said they were wating for
gravel to complete Fifth Street from
Allen Avenue to Dunsmuir. Aid. Max
well contended that something should
be done with the lower part of Duns
uiulr Avenue. There were "pot holes'
it: all directions. Street work was
discussed, and the Council decided to
look Into the question ot iiuprovln.
Dunsmuir Avenue highway and form
an estimate of the amount required
for 1923 and supply the Department
of Public Works with tlle necessary
Information.
Isolation Hospital.
Aid. Pickard Informed the Council
that n new chimney bad been built
nt the Isolation Hospital, and the
building was lu lhe hands of carpen
ters who were re-shingling the roof.
But there waB no Improvement in the
lighting system; it was still coal oil
lamps; which was a nuisance.
Then the question of poles came up
and who should erect them to supply
the Isolation Hospital with electric
light. It was said that several buildings were going up outside the City
limits and In the vicinity of the Isolation Hospital, and the question was
asked why Rhould the Council erect
poles.    Aid. Maxwell suggested, aud

"The Commission has not heen established for the sole purpose of Investigating the charges against the
Pension Board. The most important
[unction of the Commission is the survey of all re-establishment needs and
all matters affecting ex-service men
and dependents.
"There are two distinct phases to
the enquiry. These must not be con-
.used. The Ilrst business ot the Commission Is the investigation of the
charges. During tills probe no consideration can properly be given to
the effect of existing legislation. The
question will simply be: 'Are the
charges substantiated or not?'
"The Commission must report on
this phase before proceeding to tho l
next. Consequently it Is unlikely that
It will travel to any extent until the
second phase of the enquiry is under
way. All matters relating to pensions,
apart from those touched upon by the
charges, will be brought up during the
second phase.
"While defence of the charges involves defence of important rights,
nevertheless tlle most Important purpose of the Commission is the examination of re-establishment needs. For
this the Commission will likely travel

"The Commission cannot be a court
of appeal for individual complaints.
Such claims will be reviewed solely
to discover tiie effect of existing regulations. Do not be surprised If
steps' nre taken to subject all such
petitions to a process of elimination.
From past experience, we know that
this will be to our advantage. Nothing creates an unfortunate prejudice In a Commission or Committee
more quickly than hearing the complaints of the undeserving but noisy
minority, We must demonstrate the
injustice of present conditions with
evidence that will bear close inspection."

CONVERSION SCHEME
The attention of the holders of the
live nnd-n-half per cent War Loan
Bonds maturing December 1, 1922, Is
directed to the offer of the Minister
ot Finance to renew tbe loan on
favourable terms. The last Canadian
loan was placed in New  York at a
atlsfactory price. The Minister Is
making his present financial operation
utirely a domestic one by offering to
exchange the maturing bonds for new
bolide hearing the same rate of Interest, running either live years or
ten years, as the bond-holder may
prefer. A further Inducement to the
investor is that he receives a bonus
if one month's Interest.    The terms
•ffercd are decidedly favourable to
the investor, and it is probable that
a large part of the maturing loan will
lie renewed. Arrangements for tho
exchange of the bonds can be made
at any branch of the chartered banks
Holders who do lyjt wish to reinvest
will be paid in cash on the 1st of
December.

THE ROYAL BANK OF CANADA
It was the most dreadful day of
George Arden's life; with the bitter
prospect of still more dreadful days
to follow.
He had come home so happy, feeling
at peace with all the world; and so
confident that he and his wife, Adeline, were going to have a Jolly evening at the theatre, followed by a still
Jollier supper at their favourite restaurant.
Adeline had come out into the hall
to greet him on his return from the
city, and had helped him off with his
coat as usual, when she had given a
horrified cry, and pointing to the
front  of  his   waistcoat,  exclaimed—
"I always suspected it! Now 1
know my suspicions were true!"
Uttorly nt .a Iobb for a moment—
but only for a moment—to account
for this behaviour on the part of Adeline, George glanced down at his
waistcoat. Then he.too, gave a gasp
of Jiorror, for entangled to his top
button, was a soft, gleaming, golden
curl, attached to a long hairpin!
George gazed at it as though it
were some frightful reptile; he even
backed a little, as though he thought
he could get away from it that way,
But the lovely, gleaming curl backed I
with him, of course.
"M—my d—dear!" he stuttered.
"How—how—did It get there?'
"Tbat is what I am waiting for you
to toll me!" retorted Adeline, in that
particular tone of voice which all
erring husbands are so familiar wltn
that I need not describe It. "How-
did—it—get—there ?"
"My dear," said George again. "1
-don't know!"
fending curl free ot his button, and
Dung It upon the flames, with the air
of ono who would like to throw Its
unknown owner after it.
Of course there was no theatre that
night; nor for many nights to follow.
Life waa—to UBe George'B own dc-
flntlon of It—"hell upon earth!"
Adeline never let him out ot her
sight, save during the hours she knew
he must be at the office. And once
when he was detained there beyond
his usual time, she came up herself
to see If he was really there, and
watted for him and piloted blm home.
In vain he protested his-Innocence
and absolute Ignorance of the owner
of the "kiss-curl." Adeline simply
did not believe him.
She consented later on to go to the
theatre with him; and later to sup
at a restaurant; but Bhe never let
him out of her sight, and the occasions were far from festive, simply
agreed to by Adeline to break the
monotony of the miserable evenings
spent at home.
It was on one of these occasions
that something happened that seomed
at Ilrst as though It was going to
make things still worse for poor
brow-beolen George.
They were having supper one night
afler having been to a music-hall,
when sonic fresh arrivals came to the
next table, which was reserved, as
their own had been.
There was an elderly lady, a middle-
aged man, and a girl; and the girl
(who was very pretty, very ilemlle
tee, and very made-up) had golden
hair,  and  ou  each  cheek  reposed  a
curl, exactly similar to the one George

If you did more than look, when I was
not there! But I have always tried
to believe that—that—you did not.
Now I know my suBpclons were correct! Oh, to 'think I should have lived

ncvor been born, at last got the of-
The girl laughed.
"I don't believe you remember me,

It to you. A fortnight ago, as I was
going from the station one awfully
windy day, to get Into my car, my
hat flew off, and blew right agalnsl

my side-curls came off with the hat,
and lodged on a button of your coat.
You did up your coat, and returned
me my hat; and I felt I could not

so silly. I have aftcn wondered what
you thought when you found It, and
how you must huve laughed! Have
you still got It?"
"I—I—am afraid I—I threw II

fusion.

WHY BABIES CRY
It's often hanl to (mil the trouble
—It may be teetli — it may be
stomach—but oh I so often it is
just a chafed irritated skin on
which poor Soap has been used.
The remedy for this is so simple!
Hours of suffering—night after
night of disturbance—have been
avoided by mothers, who have
insisted on—Baby's Own Soap.
Of course it costs a little more,
a very little more, however—
than what is often bought and
used—but four generations of
Canadian Mothers are there to
vouch for its purity, for the
soothing healing effect on Baby's
delicate skin, for the lovely pure
flower fragrance it leaves when
Baby fresh and clean is taken
from his bath.
Dou't you think, Madam, it's worth

NOTICE
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY ALL WASTE OF WATER MUST STOP.
Owing to the prolonge 1 dry weather we find that it is necessary to restrict the use of
water, as if we allow the present enormous consumption to continue the town may, in the event
ot no rainfall for the next two nonths, be faced  with a water famine.
In YOUR interests ar.', for the protection of YOUR property in the event of a fire, we
find it necessary to bring into e i'ect immediately the following regulations:—
(1).
HOUR ONLY-
Water must no
-from 7 a.m. to
be used for sprinkling or irrigating purposes except—FOR ONE
l a.m.
(2). The practice of using water for the purpose of watering sidewalks, streets, etc.,
must cease. Persons using water for these purposes are liable to have their services disconnected until such time as we can install a meter on their supply
(3). Leaking taps, toilets, pipes, fittings, etc., must immediately be brought into good
repair as any premises on whicli water is found wasting from these causes will be disconnected
without further notice.
There is absolutely no desire on the part of this Company to curtail the use of
water when same is used in a proper manner for domestic purposes, but in a large number of
cases we find this privilege being abused and should the abuse continue we shall be forced to consider the installation of water meters, which would make the cost of water much heavier for the
same consumption.
Wc once more draw to your attention the fact that this is being done in YOUR
interests as every leaking tap or pipe or sprinkler used unnecessarily lowers the water pressure
and consumes water that may be needed in a few weeks more for household purposes or may be
needed TODAY to extinguish a lire on YOUR property.
Thanking you in anticipation of your co-operation in this matter, we are,

CANADIAN SOUVENIRS.
An interesting beginning in the
work of building up a school of native handicraft work has recently
been made In the National Park at
Banff. It has long been a matter for
regret In Canada that our chief
tourist centres could offer for sale
only goods made In the United States
England and Japan, which as a general thing were neither characteristic
nor beautiful. Mr. Harlan F. Smith,
of the Archaeological Division of the
Victoria Museum, has more than once
pointed out the rich Held offered by
our own prehistoric Indian designs
and advocated that they should be
utilized more largely in connection
with our handicrafts and manufactures. These designs are particularly
suited to pottery, wood carving, block
printing and weaving. A few years
ago some Interesting experiments In
the making of Canadian pottery were
made by Miss Mary Young of th?
Geological Survey staff, which attracted considerable attention. Miss Young
recently resigned from the Service
and joined a small group of craft
workers at Banff who hope to build
up there a craft centre that will eventually supply the whole of the National Parks with characteristic and
beautifully  made  Canadian   gifts  of

Henderson's
tural and Industrial Association with
the view of making the 1923 Fair the
greatest ever held on Vancouver Island. A letter torn the Associated
Boards of Trade of British Columbia
asking for a donation of twenty-five
dollars towards the expense of maintaining a freight rates bureau, was
read and action taken thereon. The
amount asked for was passed and will
be forwarded to the Associated
Board's secretary at Vancouver. The
matter of the unveiling ceremony at
lhe Memorial Cairn was brought up
and It was decided to ask Mr. A. W.
Neill, M.P., and Colonel Warden,
commander of'the 102nd Battalion
during the war, will be asked to take
port lu the ceremony. It was also announced that the sum of three hundred dollars was necessary to pay
off the Indebtedness against the cairn,
and it was decided that the Boar!
should assist in raising the necessary
funds. A subject that has been under
discussion for some months was also
brought up,—the District Agriculturist's office. Some of the members
who are agriculturists, were strongly
favorable to tbe re-opening of the
office here. They were not making a
plen for re-lnstalmont or appoint
uient of any particular person; the
only phase of the question that should
be considered being the re-establishment of a most useful office. As there
had been only one District represou
tntive appointed for Vancouver Island, it wus proposed to ask the Gov
eminent to have his headquarters at
Courtenay, instead of nt Duncan
It was explained 111 support of the
idea, that Victoria being so near to
the Cowichan and other southern districts, they could be served from Victoria by experts from the Agricultural
Department. In the matter of the
purchase of the Kyo Bay property
Messrs. C. H. Pigott, P. L. Anderton,
J. N. McLeod and It. K. Donaldson
were appointed a committee to confer
with the owner of the property.
Messrs. Hugh Stewart, William Duncan and R. U. Hurford were appointed
to confer with tlle superintendent of
the Comox Logging and Railway Co,
re the seeding down of their logged-
olT hinds. A letter was received from
the Comox Logging Co. stating why
the danger signal at Courlenay was
not operating satisfactorily, and telling the Board that as soon as the
representative of the Railway Department of the (Iovernment came to
tlle district, tills question would be
taken up with him. The company
was desirous of doing all In Its power
to safeguard tlle public. Mr. McLeod
asked for support for lhe Agricultural
Association, and after he had said
some nice things about this year's
fair, a committee of seven: Messrs.
W. (I. Marshall, J. N. McLeod, A. Bur-
cell, William Booth, Wm. Endle, C.
II. 1'lggoll and K Lloyd was appointed
lo intend the annual general meeting
ot Ihe Agricultural Association and
offer any assistance they can to help
the association along. Mayor Chas.
Slninis will also appoint representatives of the City Council to attend the
meeting. Mr. Meywood, of Victoria,
was granted n few minutes In whicli
to address the meeting. In his remarks he said he was struck with the
community spirit shown at the meeting and could readily understand
from that why the city of Courtenay
and district has advanced as far since
his last visit two years ago. Mayor
Simms outlined his plan for operating
a freight boat from Vancouver to
Courtenay, and what a benefit it would
lie for such a service to be given this
district. He wns personally willing
lo subscribe one thousand dollnrs and
asked for support. Before closing the
meeting, President Maclntyre said he
would present to the next meeting
suggestions for the more expeditious
transuding of business,

That the Paclllc Northwest has at
last attained a fixed place In tho galaxy of national summer resorts, and
that Its tame has reached even the
most conservative centers of the
Eastern States, Is shown by the way
It Is being featured this season by the
established touring companies and
summer resort guide-books. Where
formerly the big tourist guides Issued
In the various Eastern cities only Included the places of easy access, they
are now regularly devoting considerable space to this region.
An instauce is the "Summer Resort
Guide" this season by the Phlladel
phia Public Ledger, which contained
several pages bearing on this district.
»Iore~Than one full page Is devoted to
an Illustrated description of this "land
of allurement" as It is called, which
portrays vividly tiie delights ot a vacation spent In Oregon, Washington
and British Columbia.
"The travel trails of the Pacific
Northwest." it states, "lead from
mountains to seashore, each telling its
own interesting story of beauty and
grandeur, any one of them furnishing
an adequate alibi for a vacation in this
greatest summer playground of the
American continent.
"Automoblllng, camping, Ashing,
hunting, niotorhoatlug, sea bathing,
golf, yatchlng—all these may be en-
Joyed here amid surroundings unequalled anywhere ln the world for
majestic beauty. There are good
roads, magnificent scenery, including
glaciers, mountains, forests, waterfalls, lakes, rivers, sea beaches, fjords
and pastoral scenes that will bring a
thrill of wonder to the most blase
globe-trotter. And the entire region,
vast as an empire, is easily accessible,
for It Is served by nine transcontinental railways and a number of national
highways for automobile travel.
"A vacation ln this laud of wonders
is the acme of climatic delight, as It
rarely becomes warmer than 80 degrees in the middle of the day, while
cool, healthy, sleep-Inducing nights
prevail.
In Its foreslB and meadows, polson-
ous reptiles and insects are alike unknown. The mountain summits are
high enough and climbs rugged
enough to satisfy the most experienced Alpinists; while comfortablo
camps and hotels, nestling beside
highland lakes and rivers, gratify the
taste of those who prefer to go moun-
tahieerliig de luxe.
"In this wonderful land of mountains you will see rushing rivers
thundering dojvu from the mountains
mighty waterfalls, hundreds ot fee:
high, like ribbons of bended foam:
translucent lakes mirroring their
lofty peaks and fringed with carpet'
of green; meadows like cultivated
parks wilh gorgeous wild flowers.
Hole lu the warmth of sunshine you
can snowball like children and coast
lo your heart's content, climb and explore, enmp and rest. Through Its
unrivaled good roads the Paclllc
Northwest offers easy access from the
large cities to sea beaches, maanlti
cent mountains, great spreading lakes,
virgin pine forests, smiling valleys,
rolling hills and extinct craters."
This guide also Includes a full-pago
advertisement of the Paclllc Northwest Tourist Association which announces the 28 per cent reduction ln
summer feres and tells how to Bpend
a vacation that Is "different" among
the varied attractions of "this great
out doors." This same advertisement
also appeared In the Monday evening
edition of the Public Ledger and ln
43 other Important papers ln tho
United Stales and Canada aB a part
of the campaign which has been so
effective in bringing tourists to tho
Pacific Northwest this summer.
Over 500 bird lovers In the United
States and Canada are now engaged
in the interesting work of banding
wild birds and this new method of
making ornithological observations
lias opened up such Interesting aud
.aluaiile knowledge with regard to
Uie habits, life^, and migrations, ot
birds that the Bureau of Biological
ourvey In the United States has taken
over the movement and made it national in scope. Bird banding does
'ioi Injure Hie birds themselves and
ijy il intimate details ot individuals
and even character studies can be
Secured, Before Baldwin discovered
ihe facts hy banding who would have
'bought that the timid house wren
Sometimes leads a double life ns
judged by human standards, that the
denial nlangle is not uncommon In
• ■lid relationships, and divorces in
.liil.-uniuier not unknown.
The method ts extremely simple
arid conaUte merely of placing a small
numbered aluminum band on the
bird's leg. adjusted in such a way
that twigs cannot catch on the ring
and yet su that tlle circulation Is nol
,'becked. The birds are either taken
,1'om the nest while fledglings or are
caught in n special bird trap. Mark
ing birds in this manner was first In
trodueed, inlo America early in the
nineteenth century when Audubon
placed silver threads around the leg'
of a brood ot Phoebes and was re
warded by having two of the birds
return to nest lu the same vicinity
In Europe, bird banding was attempted as early as 1710, but it wat
not until 1800 that It was undertaken
.lystenirllcally. In the United States
active experimental work was begun
In 11)01, and between that year and
1909 several local attempts were
either planned or prosecuted. In 1920
the work was taken over by the Biological Survey ot the United States
Department of Agriculture, and undei
Its direction It Is now being widelj
carried ou.
Mr. S. Prentiss Baldwin, ot Clevc
land, Ohio, who handled 1,040 birds
in February and March in 1921, states
that the birds soon become accustomed to being trapped and frequently
fly straight from his hand on being
liberated to feed in the next trap.
Careless or Inexperienced handling
may result In accidents but these can
be avoided If a careful study 1b made
of the available literature and Instructions Implicitly followed. To avoid,
confusion only one set of numbers is
In use on tho continent, and these ere
allotted by the Bureau of Biological
Survey at Washington. Bird lovers
who wish to carry on the work In
Canada require a permit from the
Canadian National Parks Branch
which has charge of the administration of the Migratory Birds Convention Act in this country. Two reliable
testimonials certifying that the applicant has sufficient ornithological
knowledge to carry on the work are
also required.   .

ALL RECORDS BROKEN
FILMING ROBIN HOOD
Usually stories laden with statistics
are boresome rather than entertaining
or Instructive. In the case of "Doug-
Ins Fairbanks in Robin Hood," however, an exception can be noted, duo
probably to the fact that every record hung in connection with tha
making of a motion picture production was shattered.
The unbelievable speed with which
this gigantic production was "shot"
was due to the remarkable organization with which Fairbanks surrounded
himself. He put at the head of each
department the moBt thoroughly competent man obtainable, regardless of
price. And at the head of the whole
directoral force he placed Allan
Dwan, reputed to the most thorough
nud swiftest director of productions
ot the Robin Hood magnitude In tho
picture Industry. With Doug's own
lynainic energy behind this organization to give it Impetus, there was
never a dull moment on the Plckford-
Fatrbanks lot from tho time tho first
icniern started to the final fadcout.
Here are the cold figures which tell
lhe story of the making ot this feature:
