Disappearance Of
J. Ramsay Causes
Anxiety to Friends
NO   TRACE   FOUND   OF   WELL-KNOWN   MAN;   MISSING
SINCE  MONDAY MORNING
The incessant sounding"-of the fire
siren on Monday about 6 p.m. drew
a quick response from the members
of the Cumberland Fin* Department.
Arriving at (he fire hull it wus discovered that it was not an alarm of
fire, but a case of searching for a
well known local man. John Ramsay,
brother of Mrs. W, Button, of Minto.
The missing man, according to information at hand spent Sunday with
his relatives in the Valley, being driv-

leas than two hours.    On the admis-1 the parliamentary restaurant here?"|     First is completion of the highway
sion of his own supporters, the Liberal leader's pronouncement was
somewhat disappointing — marking
retrogression since last session—apparently largely due to Mr. Pattullo
during the recess having accumulated much small arms ammunition nnd
devoting himself to comparatively
trivial grievances, real or imaginary,
rather than confining himself to major issues in recognition of his chieftainship. Difficulty that he had experienced in finding a parking place
for his car on the opening day was,
illustratively, scarcely rateable as u
major matter of public concern.
Otherwise Liberal deliverance was
notable for somewhat sweeping denunciations ana on mechanically political lines rather than dispassionate expose of maladministration, with
adduced proofs.
"Reckless extravagance" and "rabid partizanship" were the main
counts in the indictment of the Conservative administration. The former, Mr. Pattullo alleged, had necessitated the selling of short-term
Treasury certificates at.90% "when
financial institutions of the East
were bulging with money"; raising
$5,000,000 by Treasury certificates
on another occasion; and incurring
liabilities of $7,000,000, so that thc
province had "gone behind $15,000-
000 during its first year in office and
was financing from hand to mouth in
order to protect its cheques."
Naturally he repudiated Liberal
responsibility for the $3,600,000 deficit inherited by the present government from its predecessor, of which
he was a member.
Taxes had been increased rather
than dismissed; public works expenditures hod run riot; responsibility
had been delegated to commissions
in series; pre-election pledges had
been forgotten or denied; and the
First Minister on the occasion of
Hon. R. B. Bennett's visit had stultified himself by spenking at public
meetings and promising support for
the national Conservative leader.
"And were not you nnd your colleagues active in campaigning for
the Liberals in the federal campaigns
of 1925 and '26?", the Government
lender Inquired.
"I did no more than exercise my
right of citizenship", Mr. Pattullo
retorted. "I spoke, it is true, hut
in a private capacity."
Financial complications in which
the province now found itself, in Mr.
Pattullo's view pointed the force of
the old saying "put a baker on horse-
hack nnd he'll ride the steed to
death." Apropos Hon, Mr. Malt-
land's declaration that British Columbia hnd now set a light in thc
window for provincial migrants to
the United States to come home, Mr.
Pattullo suggested thnt the government proposed to establish night
clubs to lure thc wanderers back
"If so", remarked the Premier
smilingly, "I know no one more presentable in appearance and so exuding geniality as a candidate for head
waiter than my honorable friend."
Hon. Dr. Tolmie in rebuttal proved a competent advocate of his
party's cause. He also disclosed constant mental wariness nnd those invaluable attributes of a successful
leader—unruffled calm in the face of

WIFE OF F. V. HALL, MEMBER
OF CUMBERLAND'CRICKET
CLUB, VICTIM OF TWO
HOLD-UP MEN
About 11 o'clock on Thursday
morning, Mrs. F. V. Hnll, who, along
with her husband and young son, resides on the Lake Trail road, Courtenay, was the victim of two hold-up
men. Answering a knock at the dour
of her home. Mrs. Hall was surprised
being asked for moipey. Shei
promptly told the men she did ndt
have any. and being dubious, began
to back into the house, The two ine;;
followed her in and obtained twelve
dollars from a purse in Mrs, Hall's
bedroom. The police were notified
immediately and within fifteen minutes were scouring the bush close to
the Hall residence. A good description of the two men was given to
the police by Mrs, Hnll, who have
hopes of picking them up. Mr. Hall
is well known in Cumberland being
n member of the Cumberland Cricket
Club. He was in Cumberland on
Thursday morning, shortly before thc
hold-up occurred, the hold-up men
probably being aware of his absence.
Mrs. L. Francescini gave her home
for a whist drive and social given by
the ladies' Altar Society of the Catholic Church on "Wednesday evening
last when seven tables of cards were
in play. Ladies' first and second
prizes went to Mrs. Ed. Boyd and
Mrs. M. Davison of Camp 3, Headquarters, Mrs. J. Scavarda and Mrs.
J. Wier were prize winners in the
gent's section. A pair of lovely hand
embroidered pillow cases donated
by Mrs. Husband were raffled, the
sum raised adding very materially to
the proceeds. Mrs. W. B. Churchill
of Camp 8, Headquarters, was the
fortunate ticket holder. A very delicious supper was served.

Cricket Club To
Prepare for Season
MEETING WILL BE HELD DURING COMING WEEK
The Cumberland Cricket Club intend holding their annual meeting
during thc coming week, but the exact date has not yet been set, states
the secretary. At this meeting an
endeavor will be made to devise
some plan whereby the club can be
freed from the debt incurred during
the past season's playing, It takes
a lot of money to run a cricket club
and as the season's dues are not very
high it comes rather hard on the
members of the club. Thc executive
of the club, however, is by no means
discouraged as it is figured, now that
the club is on its third year, it is
well on its way to being permanently
established, The expenses for the
coming year should not be as high
i as the last one, several Improvements
being undertaken last seuson, which
will not face the club again for some
| time. A cement practice pitch was
; laid down, sight boards erected and

Annual Reunion
Of Pioneers Was
Most Successful
ACQUAINTANCES  FORMED  IN
EARLY DAYS RENEWED;
LARGE THRONG
ATTENDS
There was an exceptionally large
attendance at the sixth annual reunion of the Cumberland Pioneers
held at the Ho-Ild Hail on Friday
Inst and many from outside points attended, renewing the acquaintance
formed in early days of what was
known us Union. The bad state of
the roads undoubtedly kept some of
the older pioneers away, but every
part of the district was represented.
Old time dances, with old time music
supplied by members of old time
families was thoroughly enjoyed,
many of the younger generation entering into the mysterious square
dances with a great deal of interest.
Thc grand march, ably led by Mrs.
John Bruce and her son Mr. Len
Piket was a memorable scene and
was entered into with great enthusiasm by every old timer in the hall.
The grand march finished up with
a set of lancers which was topped
off by a waltz.
Mayor Alex Maxwell, as chairman
of thc Pioneers welcomed all to the
sixth annual reception and regretted very much that some of the honorary guests were prevented through
business from nttending, Dr. Mac-
Naughton, M.L.A., who was at Victoria, doing battle for this district,
sent his regrets ns-also did Mr. A.
W Nejll, who slated that owing to nn
much snow and being busy getting
ready to return to Ottawa he would
be unable to be present. Mr, Thomas
Graham sent his regrets, being pre*
vented by business from attending.
The Mayor congratulated the pioneers on the bucccsi of their annual
reunion and compared lhe bucccss of
the pioneers' re-union held recently
at   Coin tenay   with   tlie   Cumberland
re-union, Our friends af Courtenay
have the- advantage over us here in
Cumberland, said the Mayor, their
annual affair is sponsored by an or-
gnnlznl ion, i In* Nal Ive Sons, whilst
we here in Cumberland had to rely
on   individual   effort.     On   looking
i round the hall, continued the Mayor,
! the result or that Individual effort
was most marked, lhe gathering having every appearance of being a most
happy one. He paid tribute to the
pioneers who had passed to their reward since (he last re-union and expressed fhe hope thai all would be
able to hi' present next year and for
many years to crime.
i Aboul midnight bounteous refreshments were served hy an energetic committee. Tin* room was cleared of all dishes and dancing again
indulged in until three-thirty Saturday morning. ,
Music for lhe dance supplied by
Mrs. W. Hudson, piano; S. L. Robertson nnd .1. Lockner. violin; .1. Hill,
trombone; Bert McLellan. saxapholie

en to his cabin near No. 5 mine on
Sunday night. Sometime on Monday
morning he disappeared and all trace
of him has been losl. He is between
forty and fifty years of ago and of
very quiet disposition. He had charge
of the logging horses used by Mr.
Hutton and which are stabled near-
No. 5 mine. From the evidence at
the stable and his cabin, it would appear that he had fed the horses, lit
tho fire in his cabin and prepared
breakfast, then disappeared.
.When he did not appear at work,
Mr. Hutton investigated but could
find no trace of him and felt no particular anxiety until later on in the
day. Mr. Hutton continued his search
for his brother-in-law, making enquiries all over the place, thinking
the missing man might be vistiing
someone, but failed to find any trace
of him.
A search party was organized on
Tuesday under the direction of Constable Dewitt, but darkness came on
before much could be accomplished.
Search parties went out again on
Wednesday morning but no trace
could be found of Mr. Ramsay. Constables Dewitt and Donahue of the
Provincial Police force, acting on information, journeyed to the Dollar
Camp and thought they had traced
him to that camp, out from there the
trace was lost again. Messrs. W.
Hutton nnd J, L. Brown went down
to the Dollar Camp on Thursday
morning to check up on the story
that the missing man was in that
vicinity, but failed to ^airi any information. Every little camp and
settlement down the Island Highway
was visited and persons who knew
Ramsay questioned, but there was
not a single person found wlu could
say they had ^eei. the missing man or
anyone resembling him. It is surmised now that the information given out that Ramsay had travelled
on the stage as far as the Dollar
Camp was a case of mistaken identi-
ay.
Messrs. Brown and Hutton arrived
back in Cumberland about 2:30 on
Thursday afternoon after a fruitless search.
Amendments To
Motor Vehicle Act
HOUSE    PROCEEDINGS    DEVOID
OF   ACRIMONIOUS
CONTENTION
Victoria, B.C., Feb. 0.—If, ns not
unsuspected, the Opposition hoped
to catch the government unready
with legislation in agreeing to drastic
curtailment of the lung's speech debate, it was itself betrayed into a
strategical mistake. Abundant business offered to keep the sessional
mill grinding, and mostly these early
measures are on such simple and acceptable lines that the controversial
element  intrudes  but  exceptionally.
The second unique feature of the
present session as it has thus far
progressed, prompt adoption of Reply being the first, is found in tho
unprecedented "fishing* 'for party:
ammunition by Mr. Pattullo and his
supporters via the question paper,
no fewer than l2:'r> Interrogations being listed, a record number for any
British Columbia session, tbe majority quite obviously arrows shot ini<>
the air. the archers hoping somehow
to transfix a ministerial shortcoming
capable   of  capituali/.atinn.
As all these questions must be
carefully answered and their repeated printing is not without cost, the
general public not concerned with
the game of politics may question
whether they are not thus required
to pay unduly as ammunition gatherers for thc loyal opposition.
To dale House proceedings have
been wholly devoid of acrimonious
contention, an isolate exception being offered as to the slatus of an
amendment to the Workmen's Compensation Act proposed by Mr. Pearson (N'anaimo), the oustanding feature which is contemplated retention of compensation for a convales-
cent workman adjudged capable of
light employment until he has actually secured work within his diminished powers.
This bill was refused consideration

Some men seem to think if they get into a
"scrape" and the editor mentions it in his paper
that he does it out of malice toward them. In
nearly every case of this kind nothing could be
farther from the truth than such a belief. It is
the editor's business to publish local happenings,
good or bad, and if a man furnishes material for
a bad item he has no one to blame but himself.

former, notably American high-pressure organizations, being shown to
have perpetrated frauds on the merchant community; while disclosed irresponsibility or worse on the part of
so-called private detectives challenged action for their control.
More important in principle are
amendments to the Motor Vehicle
Act and new legislation for control
of brokers. The former removes a
variety of trifling vexations in requiring reports of accidents, and
makes for greater public safely by
providing simple tests for sight, hearing, etc., for all license drivers, also

A STOCK. EXCHANGE ?
MARKETS arc older than civilization.
From the dawn of history markets
have served to facilitate exchange of
cattle, money and inert* ha nd I sc.
Through the ages n babel of shouting
voices resounded in Babylon-, Pekin,
Nischnl Novgorod, Calcutta, Carthage,
Kome, Merlin, Paris, London, New York.
Organization of Joint Btock companies
more than 150 years ago as a moans of
raising capital for business enterprises
created a necessity for a market for
stocks. The first exchange was organized
lit London in 1773. It steadily evolved
through cumbersome methods to an
efficient system. Thin experience stands
behind trading systems now practiced
ln exchanges like London, New York,
Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.
Every method is practiced to insure
fairness to investors and prevent unethical manipulation of prices. The
system of trading is recognized as fair
and equitable throughout the world.
The Vancouver Exchange operatesunder
a Charter passed and approved by the
Provincial Parliament on April 25,1907.
A market place fnr the buying and selling of stocks, the Vancouver Stock
Exchange Is essential to commerce. If
foreign capita I is to How freely In developing Western Canadian resources, the
prestige nf this Institution must be
maintained) The Exchange brings buyer
and seller in contact With each other,
sets a recognized current price for listed
stocks and is a baromoter of the success
of individual enterprises.
An Exchange is a disinterested party In
transactions between selling and buying
Interests of the public. Fluctuations
take their course in accordance with
buying and selling orders. When the
public given buying support to certain
stocks, prices rise. When support Is
withdrawn, prices fall. Predictions as
to possible values Is a matter the client
alone can decide for himself.
And as a piece of business machinery,
the Stock Exchange attracts capital to
mining undertakings or industrial
enterprise*-* which otherwise might never
conic into being. An Exchange is a
Public Institution performing an age-
old service of great value to Western
Canada,

THE  TODDLER
i Neglect, or comparative, has been
the lot of the child after he has been
weaned when he is no longer so entirely dependent upon his mother.
Thc need for special care of the infant is generally recognized, hut
what   is   not   so   universally   under-
j stood is that thc pro-school years of
Ufe aro all important in laying foundations for the good health habits
which must be established if adult
health is to be attained,
1 After weaning) the child cannot
become one of tho family in tho
sense that he enn eat the ordinary
: family diet. The feeding of the
child  nt  this  time requiros special
1 'are, and the mother needs to give
time to the proper selection and
preparation   of   thc   young   child's
| food. There is, beyond dmibt, a clos»
relationship between physical fitness
and proper food. Eating habits arc
established during the second and
third years of life. It therefore
stands to reason that these years are
the most important in starting and
developing desirablo habits in eon
nection with the use of foods,
j Young children suffor considerably
from colds, tonslUtis, bronchitis,
pneumonia, and other diseases of the
respiratory tract. These diseases
take a heavy toll of young lives each
year and, naturally, it is a matter
of great' importance to know tbe
reason for this if tho condition is
to be prevented. In searching for
an explanation, we find a condition
that apparently is significant and to
which attention should be drawn.
Mothers, as a result of the knowledge they have acquired concerning
the care of the infant and tho value
of fresh air and sunshine, now put
their babies out of doors a great deal
After the first year, however, this
becomes difficult because the young
child requires constant supervision
unless he can be left in a place that
is absolutely safe. As a result, the
child Is kept indoors, possibly gointr

j out with the mother when she rocs
: shopping, which means that most
j of the time is spent in stores. Thus,
: Lhe child does not get the fresh air
1 which be requires and this lack of
■ fresh air is one reason why young
children suffer so frequently from
diseases of the respiratory tract.
The health of the young child demands fresh air. It may require
considerable planning to make sure
that he gets it, but the effort is well
worth while.
TEETHING
During the years when the baby
tcelh are coming through tbe gums
and the child is said to be teething,
it is a common belief that any one
of the numerous ills from which the
young child may suffer can be fairly
put down ns being due to teething.
If a rash develop, it is called a teething rash. The young mother is told
that the cold in the head, the crying
thc restlessness, the upset stomach
aro all due to teething, and thai
there is no reason for ther thinking
anything else. In some cases, this
simple explanation has led to serious results. We try to prevent diarrhoeas in children by proper feedings, but, if the condition does occur
it is know by those who have the
responsibility of earing for such
cases, that prompt treatment, right
at the start, is needed, and that delay In. securing proper treatment
early exposes the child's life to danger. The delay which occurs in seeking treatment is very often explained by the mother on the grounds
that she thought, she had been told
by friends, that attacks of diarrhoea
were to be expected as a result of
teething, and that the condition
would clear up, of itself, when the
tooth was cut.
Teething is a normal event, and
must babies go through the period in
an easy manner and with so little
evidence of what is happening that
the parent is surprised on seeing the
J white point which is baby's tooth.
Some children do suffer evident pain,
land such children are apt to be fret-
! ful and to suffer from broken sleep,
{ with the result that they are not Up
to their usual standard of fitness.
The point which wo wish to make
is simply this—it is not safe to assume that teething is responsible for
whatever happens to a child during
the teething period. Conditions that
arise during the teething period are
j to be dealt with properly ,and are
J not to be considered ns being of no
: particular importance. A realiza-

-ARCHIE  DICK DEFENDS
;OUR   MODERN   MAIDENS.
I The following is an extract from
i "The Uubyssey", the semi-weekly
chronicle of the Uuiverslty of British Columbia, Issued January 24:
"The first debate of the year's inter-class debates between the Freshmen and their traditional enemies
the Sophomores will decide for Varsity whether of not the woman of
the twentieth century is inferior to
thc woman of the last century. The
debate, which will be held at 12:15
on Tuesday in Arts 100, is between
Mr. Frederick Jakoway nnd Mr. Edwin Stener of Arts ".\'2 and Mr.
Archie Dick and Mr. Milton Owen
for Arts '38.
"Great care is b< ing taken in the
preparation of the debate, especially
by the Sophomores, as the members
of the teams realize that the success
of their socll I life is at stake. Mr.
Jakeway and Mr. Stener, who will
try to prove that the nineteenth century woman w: superior to 11)30'*
flapper, are seasoned debaters. Mr.
Jakeway has gained experience
through the Arts'82 Oratorical Club
und Mr. Stener represented Arts 'Ii2
in debate last year. The hope of the
modern woman rests with Mr. Dick
and Mr. Owen whose natural chivalry
will not tolerate attacks on the fair
sex of today. Archie Dick is an experienced debater, a candidate for
election on his class executive, while
Milt. Owen is a member of the 'Boys'
Parliament'  and his class executive,
"As this is tbe flrst debate of a
series all those who wish to take part
in these Inter-class forensic combats
are asked to notify their literary representative. Thc Arts \°»0 and '81
tennis will discuss the subject, "Resolved that limitation of participation in non-academic activities is in
the best interests of the students.' "'
Since the debate we have learned
that Mr. Dick and Mr. Owen were
successful in defending the modern
woman, the judges awarding a two
to one. decision.

particular proposals for an Alaska
road connection for stimulating tourist traffic and nidustrial expansion,
arrangements pending for investigation hy a tripartite committee (American, federal and provincial) of
the feasability and estimated cost of
such a highway .and the equitable
apportionment of costs.
"Will the government leader give
us his definite assurance here nnd
now that it his policy to build this
road?", Mr. Kergin (Atlin) twice
demanded.
"I would not seek to make myself
so foolish", Dr. Tolmie smilingly retorted—"after just saying we are
proposing to investigate the elements
of practicability and probable cost.
That is clear enough I think?"
"Shall the motion puss?", intoned
Mr. Speaker Jones, the Premier having resumed his chair and the House
taken ns read the formal resolution
"in reply".
"Aye!", came in chorus from both
sides of the House.
Followed the usual culm in the
wake of storm, during which the
leader, rank and file of the Labor
Party slipped quietly into his seat,
glanced questioningly about, and,
misapprehending the situation, took
the course of courage—
"I move the adjournment of the

in a sea of laughter, during which a
near-by seat-mate conveyed to Mr.
Uphill the position of affairs.
"Well I'll be good josh-hanged 1",
lie predicted emphatically.
Nor had he quite recovered from
the shock of major surprise when the

deed well done.

Here Mr. Gartley established a logging busniess and supplied logs to the
Moodyvillc sawmill . After several
years in the mill town they moved to
Vancouver Island and took up residence on a promontory near Comox,
later known as Gartley's Point. The
next twenty-three years were spent
on the Island nnd it was here thnt
Mrs. Gartley witnessed and participated in the privations and hardships
of pioneers. Her trip to Vancouver
island was made in a rowboat.
About 1006 sho came to Vancouver with her husband.

was a private party, under auspices
of the club and not run or sponsored
by Jimmy Wulker or the Maple Leaf

"FAMILY  BUTCHERS"
A truck came
along
just in
time
A touring car had crashed into a telephone pole,
a mile south of the New
Westmintter bridge, smashing the pole and tearing
down two Vancouver- Lad-
n«r. ..A telephone repairman wat soon on the scene
but a real problem con*
fronted him. ..The broken
pole would not bear his
weight, and the wires were
dangling in mid-air, far beyond his reach.
Luckily, just as he was
wondering what to do, a
telephone truck, carrying
a three. ton cable reel,
came along. The truck wns
bad ed under the wires, and
by climbing on top of thc
cabl 2 reel, the repairman
was nblo to reach tho broken   lines   and   mend   them.
