PASSES AM
Is Called Suddenly While on a
Visit to Rev. J. X. Willemar,
at Sandwick.
Early on Tuesday morning, at
the home of the Rev. and Mrs.
Willemar of Sandwick, the Rt.
Rev. Austin Scriven, D.'D., Lord
Bishop of British Columbia, passed away peacefully in his sleep
at the age of 06 years.
At St. John's, Courtenay, on
Sunday morning last, apparently
in vigorous health, he ordained
the Rev. A. Stackhouse to the
priesthood, and in the evening
administered ..the Rite of Confirmation to several candidates.
He was looking forward with
great pleasure to participating in
the Jubilee Services at St. Andrews, Sandwick, on Wednesday,
but it was not to be.
He had fought a good fight, he
had kept the faith, he had run
his course, and God saw fit to call
him to higher service in a better
■world than this.
It is well nigh impossible to express in mere words a fitting tribute to the memory of this great
and noble Minister of Christ. If
ever there was a saint in the Diocese of Columbia it was Bishop
Scriven, "the Archdeacon," as
all his friends still lovingly speak
of him.
For nearly 30 years as Archdeacon he served the Diocese
faithfully and well, and on July
15th, 1915. was elected to the
Episcopate. The appointment
was a most popular one and the
Bishop was overwhelmed with
congratulations and tokens of'
love ancl affection from both Anglican and Nonconformist friends
In Cumberland, where he has
many old friends and where as
Archdeacon he had spent several
weeks during vacancies at the
Vicarage, the news of his appointment as Bishop was received
with great delight.
And now he has gone from
our midst. To say that we shall
miss him is to state but half the
truth. We seem to have lost part
of ourselves so closely interwoven
was the personality of the Bishop with the lives of his people.
Today the Church mourns a great
and noble leader; his wife a devoted husband, and we a warm
and tender hearted friend. Every inch a man, the Bishop had
a heart as big as his body. His
gentleness, humility and sympathy won the affection of all who
came into contact with him.
Loved by all who knew; him, he
had not an acquaintance who did
not admire and respect him, not
a friend who did not love and revere him. As someone said the
other day, "he was one of the
best known and most highly esteemed men in British Columbia',
Our deepest sympathy goes
out to his beloved wife, but we
know that she will be sustained
and comforted in this her hour
of sorrow by Him who said "I
am the Resurrection and the
Life," ancl "Blessed are they
that mourn, for they shall be
comforted."
So he will be laid to rest "in
sure and certain hope of the resurrection to eternal life," and
we who are left are ever bound
to pray in the words he was so
fond of using when speaking of
his departed friends, "May the
souls of the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest
in peace." A. B.
RED CROSS FETE AT MRS.
J. R. LOCKARD'S A SUCCESS
The Red Cross Fete held last
Tuesday was a most successful
event and all present must feel
very grateful to Mr. and Mrs.
Lockard for throwing open their
grounds to the public on this occasion. There were many attractions provided, the children
being occupied in fishing for mysterious parcels and eating ice
cream cones whilst their elders
were trying their skill at knocking off the Kaiser's head or
throwing rings for alluring presents, A good tea was provided
free for all and lemonade,, icecream and candy were on sale.
The Fortune Teller and the Photographer did a good business
and even the pony did its "bit"
in earning money for the Red
Cross. The Tennis Court was
kept engaged until late in the
evening and was a great attraction to the spectators as well as
to the plavers.
The West Cumberland Band
provided good music much appreciated by all and also took part
with the Boy Scouts and Girl
Guides in the Sunset Drill, playing "God Save the King" during
the salute of the Union Jack.
Much more might be said in praise
of the decorations, good work of
the Scouts and Guides, excellent
behavior of the children, etc., adding considerably to the pleasure
of all.
This opportunity is taken of
thanking the various merchants
in town who contributed gifts for
the Fish Pond, the Big Store for
lending the dishes, the Scouts,
Guides and Band for their services, in fact everyone who helped
to make the event a success. A
dance was' held in the evening in the Ilo Ilo Hall and much
was said in praise of the Orchestra and good floor by those present. An announcement of the
entire proceeds for the Red Cross
will be made next week.

Terms Canadians "Barbarians."
London, June 21.—Canadians
and Canada got full attention in
the German press during the
time from June 5th., to 15th.
Most of the important Berlin
journals around the former date
gave the idea that the temporary capture of our trenches was
the worst blow, to translate one
particular'phrase, "that any of
these barbarians from overseas,
colored or otherwise," had ever
sustained.
Other accounts *ro on to say
that the Canadians fought fiendishly and refused, in arrogant
Colonial fashion, to admit they
were beaten when "our brave
Wurtemburgers swept their trenches, It is hoped now that they
have learned the lesson that these
farmers are no match for trained
troops of the Fatherland."
Other papers suggest that because of mere pigheadedness the
Canadians would attempt to retake the ground lost, but the latest of all reports is, one which
says that although the Dominion
soldiers had regained a certain
portion of the old trenches they
would never be able to hold them
This was published June 15th.,
but papers to hand of the 17th.,
seem to have missed mention of
the Canadians altogether.
Artillery duels and stiff fighting
still continue on the Canadian
front. They are doing fine work
giving the Huns no rest. Bombing raids every night have been
particularly successful. Pioneer
battalions have worked heroieal
ly night and day strengtnening
the positions we have retaken
Our former Hooge trenches are
now No Man's Land, and al-
thoug the Germans have made
several attempts to hold thern
the Canadian artillery has alwavs
driven them out.
News reaches me from Amsterdam that very few German
croops have been removed from
the section round Ypres to reinforce the Eastern Russian front,
where things are beginning to
move. The larger towns behind
the German lines, such as Rou-
lers, have been emptied of civil-
ians crowded with reinforcements and stores.
The Canadians have now with
them one of the finest British divisions, with whom they have
fought alongside many times.—
Roland Hill.

Commissioner Inspects Cubs.
The Hon. T. R. Heneage, acting Chief Commissioner of B. C.
for the Boy Scouts, made his annual Inspection visit to Cumberland on Friday the 16th. While
the report of the Boy Scouts has
not come to hand yet we are glad
to be able to give the report on
the Cubs, which has arrived and
of which we are justly proud.
The Cubs Patrol is under the
leadership of Rev. Bischlager,
who has devoted a considerable
amount of time and patience.
;which we are pleased to see has
brought such a splendid appreciation by the Commissioner. We
understand the Cubs as a Patrol
stand second in numbers for British Columbia, which is a record
in itself, and we feel mre ere
long they will take the lead and
rank first, judging from their
present efficiency and strength.
Acting Chief Commissioner's Heneage's
report on inspection of Cumberland Pack
of Wolf Cubs, June 18th, 1916:
" I congratulaie these Cubs on not only
knowing whal they are, so far, expected
to know; but more beside, if 1 am to judge
the knowledge of the many by the work
of the few.
They made a brave attempt to give
correct answers to questions on the Flag:
and the mistakes Ihey made in lhe knots
were also being made by the Scouts.
Some of them also know the Scout
Law already.
Their marks on  what  they   ought In
know appear to be   100%.
(Sgd) T. R. Heneage.
Acting Chief Commissioner of B.C.
INCREASED USE OF ELEC
TRICITY IN THE HOME
The use of electricity in the
home is gradually developing. Its
original limited utility as a source
of light has heen extended to the
supplying of energy for the electric iron and toaster, the sewing
and washing machines and the
vacuum cleaner. Electric ranges
are coming into general use, the
lirst objection, tin' relatively high
initial cost of thc range, having
been overcome.
A domestic use to which electricity seems admirably adapted
but which, thus far, has received
insufficient attention is that of
providing hot water. In many
Canadian homes, the furnaces or
coal ranges are provided with
attachments to supply hot water
for the kitchen, bath- room and
laundry during the winter months.
As the furnace remains unused
from the middle of spring and
coal ranges are not regularly
used during summer, the supply
of hot water throughout thc
house is lacking from May to November. Supplying this service
by electricity is a great convenience to the householder, and, at
the same time, opens a new field
for the desired summer load to
the central station or other organization dealing in electric
energy.
Several central stations, aware
of the benefits to be derived from
such a load, have introduced
special systems of charging for
this service. In Toronto, one
organization has an arrangement
with one small (500 watts) and
one large (2,000 watts) heating
unit; the idea is to charge forthe
small unit on a moderate fiat-rate
basis and keep it operating con
stantly for ordinary domestic
needs, while the large unit, which
need be used only for abnormal
requirements, such as laundering,
is charged, for at a low meter rate.
The cost of the installation, including jacketted tank, plumbing,
etc., is $30.00. In the United
States units of 750 and 1,000 watts
have been found satisfactory.
Many companies do not meter
the consumption of the hot-water
heater, charging a monthly flat-
rate forthis service. These companies have also been encouraging the "cooking-by-wire" movement; usually, itisstipulated that
water-heater and range are to be
served through the same double-
way switch so that both the range
and the heater are not operated
at the same time. The water
heater is usually kept on continually except when using the
range; thus, the boiler is heated
over night and, if properly jacketted with nonconducting material, remains hot enough through
the day to supply the demand
while the range is in service. L,

TOURING NORTH
Accorded Enthusiastic Welcome
At Each Point from Prince
Rupert to Hazelton.
Hazelton. B.C., June20.—Pre-
mier Bowser, accompanied by
Hon. W. R.-Ites, Minister of
Lands; Hon. Wm. Manson, Minister of Agriculture; Mr. II. B.
Thomson of Victoria, Mr. J. E.
Merrylield, Prince Rupert, and
party, arrived here this evening
from Prince Rupert, having left
the coast early in the morning.
The trip up was marked by a '
strong local interest at every
point, the station platforms being
lined at each place with re-idenls
eager to get a sight of the Prime
Minister, The trip seems to be a
repetition of his triumphal journey on Vancouver Island.
Wherever possible Mr. Bowser
alighted and had a personal chat,
it being his desire to get closely
in personal touch with the people and receive at first hand their
views of his administration and
its work. At the public meeting
held at Terrace and this place
the halls were crowded to capacity.
At both places settlers came
miles to hear him speak, both
sexes being well represented. In
Hazelton the turnout was very
large, among the number being
old James May, 86, and the first
white resident of this section. He
has been here over 40 years and
never saw a railway locomotive
until the first G. T. P. train
pulled through. As agriculture
and mining provide the basis for
industrial success in thjs district
the remarks of the speakers on
the recent legislation designed to
aid these lines of endeavor were
of chief interest, and great satisfaction was expressed at the
outlook which the new laws provide, Mr, Frank Dockrill, Telk-
wa, the Conservative candidate
for Omineca, the newly constituted constituency, was also in
Hazelton and spoke.
Prior to the meeting here and
subsequent to it the Premier met
numbers of the local residents
and discussed with them matters
affecting the district and proposed improvements and promised
to give requests for assistance to
the district his earnest consideration. One matter for which aid
was pressed was the construction
of a bridge across the Bulkley
river, connecting with the G, T.
P. at South Hazelton, and he
promised to have the government
engineer investigate the situation
with a view to providing estimates as to cost and the best site
for its local ion.
SETTLER'S RIGHTS.
W hen the Act dealing with this
matter was passed several years
ago many settlers did not make
application within the time specified in the Act, and desired to
be heard when the date had expired. The Hon. W. J. Bowser,
Premier of British Columbia,
wants to get the facts of the different cases and for that purpose
has appointed Mr. Justice Gregory to enquire into the matter
and report to the Government on
the question of Settler's Right.
All those who are interested
should prepare their case at once
for presentation lo the commissioner, who will properly open
the enquiry during the month of
July or the beginning of August.
Notice will lie given when the
commission  opens.
Three colored gentlemen weie
charged in the local police court
on Wednesday wilh gambling,
and fined S20 and costs, in default
two months. The fines were paid.
II. Holling left for Victoria on
Friday to take up hia duties with

CANADA'S TOBACCO FUND
The Fund to provide Tobacco
for the British Troops from overseas, which was originated by
the Over-Seas Club, ancl of which
Canada's Tobacco Fund forms
the most important part, has issued a statement to the end of
April showing the amount received during the 19 months of its
existence.
Canada heads the list with
contributions amounting to upward of $120,000 and over
$100,000 has been raised ;in Australia and New Zealand. Including
the penny contributions of the
children of the elementary schools
of tbe Old-Country, which exceeded $100,000, the total money reported to the end of April was
close on $000,000 as will be seen
from the following statement.
Actually the Over-Seas Club has
been instrumental in raising
$640,000 up to date, and lias sent
to the boys in the trenches two
and a half million packages of
Tobacco and Cigarettes, representing considerably over 128
million Cigarettes, 256 tons of
Tobacco.
We have just received from
Mr. Ffancis R. Jones, the organizing Secretary of the Fund in
Canada ancl the United States,
the following statement showing
the total amounts contributed in
the various parts of the world.
Canada   $121,845
U. S. A       75,910

■ devoted to the comfort of
the Canadian boys at the front,
and if each of the 100.000 men
now representing Canada on the
firing line is to receive one of the
weekly packages arranged for
by Canada's Tobacco Fund through the Overseas Club, it is obvious that the sum of $25,000 is
required every week to provide a
25c, package for each of these
100,000 men.
Even allowing that there are
some of the men who do not
smoke and that there aie some
who are cared for by their personal friends and through other
channels, the fact remains that
i he men want Tobacco more than
they  want   anything else,  that
they are not getting as much Tobacco as they require, and that
they greatly value the gifts being sent from home through the
Overseas club.
We have seen a number of the
appreciative replies received from
the men and officers at the front
and we hope our readers will respond generously to the requests
being made for further help. Any
who can render assistance are invited to communicate with Mr.
R. Jones, Organizing Secretary-

Literature in the interests of
the fund, contribution books, etc,
will be forwarded on application.
Cheques and Postal Orders should
be made payable to the Overseas
Club and may be deposited with

Banks have undertaken to remit
contributions free of charge to
the Union Bank of Canada, Montreal.
Valuable help has been given
by the Postmasters throughout
the Dominion and any Postmas-.
ter will be pleased to receive and

To enable the Fund to fully accomplish its beneficent work it is
necessary that the services of
many additional helpers should
be secured quickly, and the help
of those who are willing to assist
will-be gladly welcomed. An attractive circular has been prepared for distribution and copies

After Reflection
1.  "Now 1 wonder If Ma would nilse
ine of those Jars of Jam?"
3.   "Ah!"
The Havoc of Time
"Thia political tie—" sa'd the disappointed office-seeker, sadly.
"Well, what about lt?"
"It Isn't anything like the kind our
fathers used to make."
Uncle Eph. Remarks:
when a pig wasn't blamed fer makin'
a hog o' hisself, but a man was—an'
a fat feller'd often git up in a street
car an' give his scat t' three ladles."
Village   Excitement
"May I ask lhe cause of all Ibis
excitement?" said the stranger In the
little village.
"Certainly," replied thc countryman,
"We're celebrating the birthday of the
oldest inhabitant, sir. She's a hundred and one In-day."
"indeed! And may I ask who is
that little man, with tbe dreadfully
sad countenance, walking by tbe old
lady's side?"
"Oh, that's the old lady's son-in-law,
sir. He's been keeping up tlie payments on her life Insurance policy for
the last thirty years!"
Porter; "Hallo, Patl "un i the machine work I"
Pat: "Begorral I dunno, It says

Not  So  Crazy
The good clergyman was administering to the needs of the inmates ol a
private lunatic asylum, and he waa
especially warned against an exceedingly cross-grained, re<ently-arrived
patient. -Nothing daunted, however,
the reverend gentleman entered the
little room where the man was confined and began conversation with
blm.
"Is It true," hundred the crazy mau,
"that Queen Elizabeth lias recently
married the Sultan of Turkey?"
"Quite true," replied tiie \isiiur, bent
ou humoring tlie patient.
"And il is also true, I suppose," went
on tlie demented one, "that Lloyd-
George has been made Lord Chancel,
lor witli a salary of twenty thousand
dollars a year?"
"Quite, uulle true," sah! the clergyman, fervently.
"Ah!" said the madman, rubbing hia
hands with glee. "And. pray, what
may you  he?"
"I? Oh. I lira a minister ol tlie (ie/-
pel."
"Well," said the man, relic Uvely,
"you look like a minister of tie-1 him i
and you may he one, hut you are abo .t
the biggest, cold-blooded inr I ev, :■
met."
He: "I want you to understand tl.
I got my money by hard work." .
She: "Why, 1 thought it was left
you by your uncle."
He: "So It was. But I hail bs
work getting It away from the la
vers."
Quite a Different Reason
"Will you show me some looking
(lasses, please?" Inquired young Jim
ot the storekeeper.
Kindly the old man leaned over
the counter to his little customer.
"Tell me," lie said, "do you want
to see a hand mirror or one to hang
on the wall?"
"I'd like to see several of each of
them, please," said Jim. Several were
selected and placed in different positions along tlie counter.
Jim stood hack and closed his eyes.
"What Is this,' Inquired tlie man, "a
little present for mother?"
"Oh, no!" answered Jlmmle, edgliiR
doorways. "I only wanted to what I
was like when I'm asleep!" FOLK
