FORTY-SIXTH   YEAR—NO.   35
Poor Baseball
Game Won By
Combined Team
If baseball Is to prosper In this district a different brand than that dished up on Sunday last, at Courtenay
will have to be played. Perhaps It
was not altogether the fault of tbe
home, or rather the local team (Cumberland and Courtenay players combined In this Instance), who won
handily by the score of 12 runs to 8,
all 12 runs being scored In the first
five Innings, but lather the fault of
weak opponents (12 runs In five Innings Is proof enough). As before
stated If baseball Is to prosper,
stronger teams wlll have to Journey to this district, thus giving to the
long suffering fans, a better brand ot
hall. Tiie local team as at present
constituted Is a very strong one and
nnd on their game it would take a
goud Vancouver team to give them a
game.
There wns a fairly good turn-out of
spectators—at the start of the game;
it was different at the end of the game
though, as a large number lett half
way through thoroughly disgusted.
The game by Innings follows; Alberni batting first:
1st Innings: Dixon went out at
llrsl on an assist by Hunden; Kerney
went out at lirst to Halley Dixon, unassisted. Herbert son was safe on first
on an error by James and Miles
singled. McNaughton also reached
first on an error by James, lilling the
bases, but North fanned.
Bannerman struck out. Cummins
singled and scored on a three-bagger
by Conti. Halley Dixon singled but
went oul with James on a double,
Neslund to Dixon to McNaughton.
2nd Innings:    Milligan went out at
first ou an assist by Hunden.    Redford was safe at lirst on an overthrow
by  Bnnnermnn and  Neslund  singled

keeper and two medium pace bowlers
have been unearthed, along with a
classy fast bowler. With at least six
or seven men who claim to be batters
of "county calibre" Courtenay Is in
for a merry time. Efforts are being
made by some of the local enthusiasts
to land some equipment so that the
team might get In some practice before tackling Courtenay. although the
fast bowler seems to think tliat no
practice Is necessary lo beat anything
the farmers can produce. If there are
any cricket enthusiasts in Cumberland who have, or would like to donate any equipment, tbey are asked
to send same along to the Hev. E. 0.

JURISDICTION OF SMALL
DEBTS COURT EXTENDED
This week's British Columbia Gazette contains the official proclamation bringing into force the Old-Age
Pension Act, as from August 17.
At the same lime there appears the
following regulations having to do
with the carrying into effect of the
act:
(1) The Workmen's Compensation
Board is authorized and directed tc
to keep such records, books and accounts of the receipts and expenditures under this act as may be necessary; to pay pensions monthly by
bank cheque; nnd to do all such other
acts and things as are incidental, conductive or necessary to the proper
administration of the snid Act. being
Chapter 35 of the Statutes of Canada,
1927, und Ihe regulations made thereunder, and to the operation ot the
pension scheme therln contained.
(2) Every person who makes application for a pension shall Complete such forms and furnish such
evidence nnd proofs ot bis claim from
time to time as mny be required by tlle
Workmen's Compensation Board.
(3) The Workmen's Compensation
Board shall he entitled lo obtain without charge from uny Government department any available Information
tbey may deem necessary in the administration of ihe Old-Age Pensions
Act, Chapter 35 of tbe Stulules of
Canada. 1927, nnd Ihe Old-Age Pension Aci. Chapter CO of the Statutes
of Brlilsh Columbia. 1020-27.
The extension of-the Jurisdiction of
the Small Debts Court to enable it io
try cases arising out of automobile
collisions where the amount claimed
is less than $100, will be sought by
the Automobile Club ot British Columbia at the next session of the legislature, It was announced following
passage of a resolution presented at
the recent meeting of the board of
directors of the motorists' organization by Geo. E. Housser, president.
A great majority of these claims,
other than those for personal injur..',
are for amounts less than $100, Mr.
Housser explained to the meeting. If
unsettled, be pointed out, they can at
present be tried only in the County
Court, and the expense of enforcing
such a claim is entirely out ot proportion to Ihe amount Involved.
The enforcement of a just claim is
therefore often effectually prevented,
the club president asserted.
Amendment of the Act creating '.he
Small Debts Court to handle cases
for which -there was at present 'io
suitable legal machinery without tho
j necessity of setting up any spociil
| tribunal, would prove a great boon
to motorists, .Mr. Housser added.
The legal and legislative committee
of the club was Instructed to t ike   .
matter up at once with the Attorney-
General.
-The last fishing competition held
at Puntledge Lake proved to be even
more popular than its predecessors
due. no diuibt. to the fact that tlie contest started on one day and finished
the followfng day. The prize for tlie
biggest catch, for the two days was
won by E. Williams, who weighed in
BO pounds of fish. The prize for tho
biggest catch on the fly was awarded
to Sam Williams, the prize In this
Instance being kindly donated by J.
Williams. Ben Horbury. with the big-
gesi fish for tlie day was awarded the
prize donated by Dick James, whilst
the best fish taken with either bait
or trawl was divided between J, Hor-'
bury and Victor Frelone, this prize i
being donated by Charlie Dalton. Tlle i

Passed To His
Rest In England
Preparations are almost completed
for the big event of Monday, Labor
Day. when Aquatic Sports wlll bo
held at Puntledge Lake, Cumberland
commencing at 10:80 a.m. The com-
mltlee have been working extremely
hard during lhe past few days ami
the big raft or floal opposite Mr. J.
Rees' place Is almost completed and
will prove a decided asset to the
patrons of the Lake, not only on .Monday, but throughout lhe year—the
fishermen and picnic parties In Iho
summer and the hunters In the Winter. A diving tower will be erected
on the flout Ibis week-end, and it 'a
the Intention of the committee not to
allow anyone on the float unless competing in the event ubout to be staged.
Everything possible will be done by
the committee to ensure safety for the
crowd expected to be in attendance
but special efforts are to be devoted
to. the care of the younger ones.
Petting parties in rowboats and I
canoes will be looked upon by the
committee with disfavor, as it has
been proved without a shadow of a
doubt that a great many serious accidents hnve happened through, to use
a common phrase, "necking." or "petting" parlies.
There will be swimming races, row-
boat races, outboard motor races,
launch races and a special challenge
handicap between Cameron's "Lindy"
and Rees' "Slow Poke." What promises |
to be the funniest event of lhe day
will be the greasy pole event for
which a prize of $5.00 will be given
to the winner. Ornamental or fancy
diving will be another event that is
I.sure to draw a good entry as valuable
prizes have been allotted. Given fine
weather, there Is no reasoil why
Puntledge Lake should not be the
rendezvous of all the residents of
Cumberland on Monday. The committee urge on one and nil to adopt
for tltrlr slogan for that day. "Puntledge Lake for Me."

very  different   ,M.   Graham   being  a
hard-driving,  steady  player,   relying
on his placements to win whilst P.
McLoughlin  is  also  a  steady player
but his game  is  much  slower than
Graham's  and  he  depends  more  on
the  errors  of  his   opponent  to   win
than   by   beating   bim   by   clean-cut
drives . At any rate, when these two
players meet, one or the other wlll
lie forced to rearrange his .play.    M.
Graham,   last   year's   holder   of   the'
shield. Is a strong favorite but there
is no telling when one bas a player
of  McLoughlln's   calibre   to  contend
with.

DANGEROUS SPORT
WASHINGTON authorities have decided that
all canoes on the Potomac River must display lights, headlights and tail lights.
The reason, oi course, is that there has been too
much spooning in canoes, or what" the moderns
call petting. The order affects all navigable
waters.
Department of Commerce announces that canoeists who do not display lights shall be promptly arrested—and Secretary Hoover looks lo be
such a cherubic person, too—like an elder Dan
Cupid.
Of course, Ihey cover the real intent cf the
order by saying that canoes without lights constitute a menace to navigation. Any man in a
canoe is his own worst menace. It, indeed, takes
an expert equilibrist to stay in one with his girl
long enough to light a lantern.
Necking in u canoe or rowboat is probably the
most dangerous of all outdoor sports. May Irwin
once said: "If you ever see me in a canoe, you
will have to bok quick,"
Aquatic sports are to be held at Puntledge
Lake, ('umberlaiid, on Labor Day, and it is to be
sincerely hoped that the shieks and shebas of
Cumberland will know better than attempt to
hold a "necking" party in a rowboat out on the
lake.
Conversation, however, is, after all, only a
pleasant and very enjoyable social activity. If
you enjoy it you should study its rules and make
yourself as agreeable as you can while you practise it. There are more important things in the
world, to be sure, than a bargain sale or a no-hit
game of baseball. There are more important
things than pointing out the errors of others, or
enlightening them with your own knowledge.
But for such purposes it is better to hire a hall.
The next time you spend an evening with a
gathering of your friends make a note of what
they talk about. If you And one really worthwhile thought expressed, or one important subject discussed, you may indeed feel well repair.
The chances are the entire evening will be wasted
over idle gossip, inane discourse or the always
popular discussion as to how many miles you get
to the gallon.

RELIGION
WHAT DO PEOPLE TALK ABOUT?
TI IE great bulk of present day conversation
consists in repeating what was read in a
newspaper or what was told by someone
to someone else. And the subjects selected from
the newspapers are not, as a rule, the chronicle
of those events that make history or the news of
interesting achievements in literature or art, but
the cheap scandals of the day. The worse the
scandal the more it is discussed.
Then, ol' course, there are the theatres, moving
pictures and baseball. If it were not for them
many a social talker would find himself without
his tools.
Occasionally, in a social gathering, you find one
person above the average in intelligence who
talks well. As a rule, that person is encouraged
to deliver a monologue.
MANY people apparently believe that when
summer comes religious activities should
cease. We feel this is due in part to a
misconception of religion. If religion is but a
coat to be put on and off at will, then the vacationist who uses it as he does his raincoat is logically correct.
But true religion is not a coat. It is a Character and Character never takes a vacation. Religion is vital relationship between man and God.
It writes its own record in his daily conduct. It
moulds his soul by the habits which it fosters
and destiny is its final decision, from which there
is no appeal.
You may as well discontinue your daily visits
to the dining room as to cease to nourish your
religious life. Bread for the body is no more
important than bread for the soul.
The most important fact about a man is his
attitudes, motives, hopes and ideals, all of which
are largely determined by his religious outlook.
If he loves God and man, if he acknowledges the
obligation to serve and cherish the hope eternal
in his heart his laith will shine with radiance
wherever he goes. Vacation periods are necessary for rest and recuperation, but what shall it
profit a man if he gains physical vigor while he
loses the sense of spiritual responsibility? True

THE LATE MR. MARK BATE
IN the brief period of our history it has not been
given to many inhabitants of Vancouver Island to spend seventy years of their life hero,
yet this was the experience of the late Mr. Mark
Bate, of Nanaimo, who can truly be described as
one of the oldest of our pioneers. To all intents
and purposes, coming, as he did here in 1857, he'
may be said to have seen the beginnings of Nanaimo, and that he was recognized in the early
years as one of its outstanding citizens was illustrated by his choice as Mayor immediately
following its incorporation as a municipality in
1874. Fiom then until 1880 he enjoyed the position of the city's first magistrate, no one believing
that any good purpose would be served by offering him opposition. Again in 1881, in 1883 and
in 1885 he was returned to that post, and from
the latter year until 18'.)0 he held the reins of
oilice. It is a proud record of citizens' appreciation of the personal popularity and efficiency as
a business man of the late Mr. Bate.
A public-spirited citizen in every way,. Mr
Kate's activities were numerous, yet, despite all
tttese, he lived to the ripe old age of ninety years.
Me was full o. vitality always and maintained his
interest in current affairs to the end. His strength
of purpose and physical well-being led him to
undertake a journey to his birthplace in Birmingham a few months ago and while there he was
overtaken by deatli. Mr. Bate was one of the
most widely known and highly respected citizens
of the province and an example of the fullness of
years vvhicn may be attained by a clean, upright
life in this climate. No one who has been engaged rn the civic life of British Columbia ever
attained a more enduring popularity. The deepest sympathy of British Columbians as a whole
will be tendered to the surviving members of his
family.—Victoria Daily Colonist.

Okanagan Commoner: Rrank* A.
Briscoe, who for a few years has been
ut tho hend of the Armstrong Advertiser, hist week sold the newspaper
and job plant to J. E. Jamleson. late
of the Puniilcky (Sask.) Times.
The business men of Armstrong
have promised .Mr. JamicBon their
support. They did not support the
Advertiser under .Mr. Ilrlseoe or his
predecessors ns they should, and In
this way help to build a strong and
virile newspaper.
Newspaper men nre not superhuman. They nre philanthropists to
a degree, but not wholly, lf local
business men don't give the support
required lo build up a strong news-
paper, they are given a newspaper
tliat looks sick and lean and down-
iit-lhe-heels, and the publisher goes
si rung on  the job end of his plant.
You can't kill a printer, and he
won't starve. Ever and always tlie
town gets the worst of It when men in
business get peeved and pull out their
ads., hoping to spile tbo printer. Tho
printer, If he has any liddle strings In
him, sails merrily ou ami the town
heads for Hlckvllle.
Stand behind Jamieson, you good
people nf Armstrong, aud he'll give
you n newpaper. Get peeved at him
when he presents bis first bill for
printing or advertising and—well,
don't tlo it.
Goodbye, Briscoe. Good health, joy,
peace and fewer trials faithfully

REX BEACH'S "PADLOCKED" COMING
To thoso of the older generation,
who view with alarm the terrifying
manners and morals of the younger
generation, we heartily recommend a
visit to the Gaiety Theatre next Friday ami Saturday when Allan Dwan's
new Paramount drama, "Padlocked,"
ivlll he on the screen.
For this honest portrayal of a
modern American family reveals the
fact that lack of sympathy and understanding on the port of parents is
driving the youth of our country to
tlie jazz  life.
"Padlocked" Is a picturization of
Ihe widely read Cosmopolitan Magazine story by Rex Beach, lt was
adapted by Becky Gardiner and
James Shelley Hamilton, and features an imposing cast, headed by
Lois Moran, Louise Dresser and
Noah Beery. Florence Turner, Helen
Jerome Eddy, Allan Simpson, Charles
Lane and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., are
among the Important supporting
players.
The cenlrnl character In the story
Is a lovely, high-spirited girl, who
rebels against her father's narrow-
minded attitude and efforts to stitle
her natural ambitions, and runs away
from home to seek a career on Broadway. As a cabaret dancer, she straws the attention of the millionaire society set and becomes Involved
In a love triangle. An unexpected
crisis develops when her father demands that she return home, and the
subsequent events are charged with
suspense and emotional appeal.
The entire production has been lavishly set, brightly and fittingly costumed, and under Mr. Dwan's direction very colorfully and Bmoothly
produced,
MILTON SILLS PLAYS
SPANISH FISHERMAN
"The  Sea   Tiger"   Presents   a
Strong Plot of Brotherly
Love and Hate
Brilliancy coupled with a shorage
of sterling character may win out tor
a time hut It is more often the plodder, slow thinking but earnest and
sincere who gets the final break.
This in a sense Is the difference in
character that forms a basis for the
plot of "The Sea Tiger" a First National picture starring Milton Sills,
which comes to the Gaiety Theatre
next Monday and Tuesday and to the
Ho Ilo Theatre on Wednesday and
Thursday.
Milton Sills Is the slow-witted lish
erman in a tiny Spanish colony hi
the Canary Islands. Opposed to hlni
Is his younger brother, played by
Larry Kent, who is keen but con
sclenceless. And in the end It Is the
elder and slower brother who wins
love and happiness and even redeems
the erring youth.
Mary Astor has the feminine lead
while Alice White plays a disturbing
element as a show girl who comes
into the commonplace lives of the Islanders and disrupts everything
Kate Price Is cast for a good character part and the picture was directed
by John Francis Dillon, with Carey
Wilson handling the production management. He also wrote the scenorlo
from the Liberty Magazine story by
Mary Heaton Vorse. It is declared
to be one of the most romantic stoi
ies that has reached the screen In
long time.
