Cricketers Put
Playing Pitch At
"Y"ln Fine Shape
Several members of the Cumberland
Cricket Club were noticed at the "Y"
Ground on Sunday last, laying new
sods on the pitch and giving tlie Held
a general clean up. The past season,
the llrst In the history of Cumberland
tli nt a cricket team wus seen In action,
proved to be a very interesting and
enjoyable one. Whilst not very many
games were played with outsldu
tenms, It was clearly demonstrated
that with a little more experience and
practice the Cumberlundera will make
the best of 'em step. We have been I
informed by the secretary of the club
that the past season saw the club go
Into debt. It is not to be wondered
at. Not a single cent was taken in
gate money for the reason that the
cricketers never made any attempt to
collect any gate. In addition, the laying of the pitch cost money and equipment bought (one or two bats and
balls only) ran away with all the
cash in hand. The club entertained
the team from Victoria during their
stay In this district and also the
teams from the battleships "Durban"
and "Despatch". All this cost money
and the hoys naturally went behind.
To meet all liabilities a Christmas
drawing was decided on and ticket,
can now be obtained from any member of the club, The annual meeting
will be held early in the New Year
when lt is hoped a statement can be
presented showing the club free from
debt. We have been asked to publish
the averages of the playrs during tho
season just ended, and cheerfully
comply with the request.

In order to slmtualte interest in
First Aid Work the Honourable W.
A. McKenzie, Minister of. Mines, announces that he has presented a silver
cup to the Vancouver Island and
Coast District Branch of the British
Columbia Mine Safety Association,
for competition among Novice First
Aid teams, the members of which are
employed In mining or other industries. He has suggested to the Association that the term Novice Team
should apply to tennis none of whose
Individual members has won a prize
in any first aid competition, each of
whom Is the holder of a St, John Ambulance certificate; also that the members of tho competing teams must he
sixteoen years of age or over,
In making this presentation ttie
Honourable Mr. McKenzle explains
that it is his hope that the trophy
will encourage men holding first aid
certificates, who have been unsuccessful ln competitions up to this time to
persevere in their training. He points
out that after witnessing the lust field
meet at Nanaimo. under the auspice-'
of the Island Association, it wns
forcefully brought home to him that
interest In this work should be sustained, that ft is of the utmost value
both to the participants as well as to
those who may be unfortunate enough
to require the services of those holding certificates, and that it. is of special importance that all who have the
time and the inclnation. and who arc
identified with mining or other industrial pursuits, should be given every
assistance in the obtaining of tho
knowledge necessary for qualification
under the St. John Ambulance.
Monday being a holiday, it is expected that a number of Cumberland
Youths wtio are attending U.B.C. or
other colleges will arrive on Friday

Margaret's College. Victoria, Miss
Helen Parnham, Miss Annie Mann,
Mr. Jack Horbury. Mr. Archie Dick
and Mr. Victor Marinelll of the University of British Columbia.
Former Local Man
At Pentiction
Due to the activities nf two local
radio enthusiasts, radio set owners tu
this locality should this winter experience one of tlie best winters they have
ever had from radio intcrferoue.
Attempts in the past to secure complete elimination of the generally constant sources of intreference have
failed miserably, due principally to
the lack of apparatus available for its
detection hut tlie luck of co-operation
among those who would benefit mostly, both commercially and otherwise,
has now resulted In a gift of tiie
proper apparatus, in thc hope that at
last thc radio public may he saved
annoyance from as many kinds of interference as is humanly possible lo
detect and stop.
When it was learned that .Mr. J.
Shortt, tlie new city electrician was
an experienced "radio trouble shooter", having been employed for some
considerable time at the Coast in
ladio Interference work, and offered
to spend his personal time at nights
In trouble shooting with Mr. G. It.
Etter. Mr. Etter Immediately ordered
the materials and contracted a proper
radio Interference finder of a portable
nature using the loop detection system, and has made it available for
public use, When the set was tried
out Saturday night it was positive In
its action, and a terrific source of interference was located, though before
that. Mr. Shortt, due to his experience, had located another had spot
near Westminster avenue anil Main
street. Having this set available also
means considerable monetary saving
to the municipality, for wherever n
high tension leakage occurs on tbe
lines (lie wastage can now. be quickly
checked, due to radio apparatus being
many thousands of times moe sensitive than the ordinary electrical panel
Radio fans and those in tlie radio
business certainly owe Messrs. Short*
■mil Etter considerable commendation
for their activities in this mailer.
The Herald is advised that Interference troubles may'now lie reported
to either of itiese gentlemen, who are
willing to devote as much time ns
they can inwards its elimination.

The Poppy of Armistice Day
Those who fashioned it were never slow to shed
For you anil me their blood in loathsome Flanders mud.
Where Armies of the Death sleep In thai slimy bed,
Blaze now the crimson poppies God Himself hath made.
Then aid the broken lives of those come hack to you
With mind and flesh, remember!  on the ruck for you!
Stint not to buy these tokens gallantly arrayed!
"Haste for this Badge of Honour, pond'riug at your leisure!
Enlist, Humanity, your all against the Fiend of War.
Fight on. ami on, to hold our priceless hard-earned treasure
Of Peace!    And let the blood-red poppy tell again of yore,
Lest we forget how Hett. who stints no evil measure.
Unleashed the Hosts of Dread, aud worse, hath still in store!
For peace on  Earth the crimson  poppy  pleads  instead—
Aye!  Pleads unasw'ably a peace for evermore
To consecrate indeed the sacrillcial dead.

Calgary, Nov. .1—Steam coal operators of Alberta, interviewed here on
Saturday, confirmed their decision to
opppose uppllt ailu'i ot the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal Company, Ltd., to
Tariff Advisory hoard I.Ui abolition
of the duty on bituminous or steam
coal, coming into Canada from the
United States. It was obvious, the
op rators stated, that companies such
as those iu Alberta, whose business
was confirmed almost entirely to

seriously affected by the removal ot
the duty.
I World of Provincial Politics
! By  a   Parliamentary  Press  Gallery Representative.
Victoria, B.C., Nov. 5—It Isn't more
than a fortnight ago that critics of
Conservatism and all Its works, led
by the Vancouver "Sun", were demanding action of Director-General
Tolmle. Now the cry Is that hff Is
going too fast!
Less than ten days ago protest was
made against his several reservations
of judgment on matters of import put
up to him. Now tho charge is that lie
is too hasty, too precipitate, too headlong In his course. He probably is
not greatly surprised; he has been
too long in politics to dream of pleasing everybody and all at the same
There has, at nil events, boon no
slow action motion on the lot at Victoria this past week. The order has
boon for "Action", with at least half
the principals in the foreground and
no one of them monopolizing the spotlight ovorlong.
Firslly,, the axe has been falling
and humankind's proneness to morbidity has given dismissals or resignations in high places attention disproportionate to other and more Important developments.
W. H. Mclnnes, Official Administrator, has been dismissed—vulgarly
"canned". So has Factory Inspector
Stewart. Ditto Mr. Dougherty, head
of the Insurance Branch—and Chairman M. B. Jackson K.C. and bis eight
associates of the Came Board; while
Assistant Purchasing Agent Major
Hamilton has resigned, allegedly by
As to the Administrator, no complaints are hoard, the prevailing comment being that "tho old government
should have done it long ago"—in
which connection it Is recalled that
when Mr. Mclnnes was Civil Service
Commissioner and his official bead
wns demanded by David Whiteside
and other Liberal members. Premier
Oliver agreed that he had earned his
then promised dismissal. He was
released ns Civil Service Commlston-
or, nnd fnrwith installed In an office
more renumerative than the Premiership!
I The Department of Insurance is
i being merged for economies witli the
j Registry of Companies, explanation
I or Mr. Dougherty's conje. The Game
I Hoard, conspicuously political, van-
| ishes ns a foregone conclusion in
game policy reconstruction on preelection outlines of Pooley policy in
this connection.

I in partizaushlp, although a public
i servant, as can voice no complaints,
i As for Major Hamilton, strong pres-
j sure Is being exerted to save his Of-
! flclal scalp, ii leading Conservative
' member, Major H. Despanl Twfgg,
| leading the rescue squad, which has
! at least achieved a definite promise
I of government reconsideration.
The  proportion  of changes  in
official personnel is, however, but
|     fn  the  ratio of one  to   three  as
!     compared    with   the   first   three
I     mouths' period after the Liberals
attained office.
And it Is stressed as curiously significant thnt Deputy Ministers and
Private Secretaries .individual selec-
] lions of iho Department bends, occtl-
. pying posts of peculiarly confidential
1 character, are virtually unchanged

although these particular officers
more than any others as a rule share

had of Hon. Dr. Tolmle's sincerity fn
assuring government employees that

for cause?
i The most self-effacing and at. tbe
same time one of tho hardest working and admittedly competent minds
' tors is Hon. F. P. Burden, who holds
the heavy portfolio of Lands. Forests
and Watcrpowors. He has been too
Btrenuosly occupied to do much talking, but bis works are eloquent for
him. Under his diplomatic guidance,

Japanese Celebrate
Coronation of Their
Emperor This Month
Enthronement of Ceremonies
Nov. 10; The Great Thanksgiving on Nov. 14 and the
Grand Banquets Nov. 16, 17.
The Empire of Japan is a monarchy
reigned over by the Emperor who
comes Iu succession in ono unbroken
lineage for ages eternal, and this national constitution has never been
displaced since it was founded mote
than two thousand years ago.
Tlie Grand Ceremonies of Ascension
to the Throne virtually begin with
the ascension to tlie Sovereign right
of a new Ehnperor, It was not entirely unknown that a new Emperor
should begin to hold sway over the
millions of the land upon tbe abdication of the preceediug Sovereign, but
the Emperor Meiji, tbe August Grandfather of ttie present Emperor, promulgated as fundamental legislation
upon matters relating to tbe Imperial
House of Japan, the Imperial House
Statute "Knshitsutempan", fn which
the one and unique occasion of the
transfer of ttie sovereignity is defined
and limited to the sole case of tho
demise of the Emperor, while it discontinues for the future tlie posslblity
ot an Empress-regnant, which had
also previnsly occurred in the history
of the Empire, although as an event
of a rare and exceptional  nature.
Immediately upon the passing from
earthly life of an Emperor, his successor accedes to the Throne, for the
Sovereign Seat can never be left vacant even for a single day. Tbe new
Emperor, at tbe time of bis accession,
comes into possession of the three
Sacred Treasures, which, consisting
of a Sacred Mirror called Yatano-Ka-
gami, a Sacred Sword called Ame-no
Tsurugi and a Sacred Jewel Necklace
called Vasakani-no-Magatatna, have
been handed down from his Ancestors
and are held in such care and reverence as are due to the regalia of a
The month of November will be
a busy month for the Japanese nation
for on November 10th tho Enthronement of Ceremonies takes place followed by tlie Daijo-sai or Great
Thanksgiving on November 14 and bv
the Granil Banquets on .November 16
and 17.
It may he stated that tbe Grand
Ceremonies constitute not only tho
greatest function of the Imperial
House, but so the most Important
State ceremonial, tho expeuso being
entirely borne by Uie national treasury. The whole nation rejoices at Its
good fortune in seeing this felicitous
occasion, and government and people
alike give expression to their sincere
feelings of congratulation in various!
ways such as to establishment of commemorative institutions, improvements for the public benefit nnd :;'>
Furthermore, at tho Uireshbold of
the new reign, they foster their spirit
of patriotism and loyally to the Mikado
in stimulating their consciousness of
pride in their national characteristics
and fn earnestly hoping for the prosperity of tbe Imperial House which
acts as the fundamental source of
the national existence, for the eternal continuance of the Throne, and for
the long life of their Emperor. They
also hope at this auspicious juncture
for 'be peace and well being of the
realm, and for their own happiness
and prosperous future.
The Emperor ,oti his part, avails
himself of this opportunity to spread
boons abroad throughout ttie country,
ordering the authorities to grant amnesties and io arrange for the consolation of old age. and for alms-giving to tbe poor, with an ample amount
of money tnketi out of the privy purse.
Post ii moiis honours are conferred

THE advantages of war, paradoxically enough,
are many.-  Looking backward, on Armistice
Day, those of us who fought and near died
can profit hy the tortures and miseries we underwent.   Mind and body suffered, and on the basis
of this suffering, the Nation as it is today profits.
Strife and trouble develops character and the
youth of the  land  is  the  stronger and  more
capable for the handicaps and pain they endured.
When the youth of the land—the men now in
their "thirties" who fought to peace and a better
self-understanding—depends  the prosperity and
strength of the Nation.    For and Armistice Day
thought let us dwell on that.

These revelations obviously put Mr. Cook in an exceedingly awkward position, since at tlie very time he was
conducting his negotiations he was vehemently denouncing tlle owners aud publicly refusing to make any approach towards settlement of the problems which then
were perplexing them and the country as a whole. But
tlie fiery leader can be impeached or otherwise dealt wilh
only by a national conference of miners' delegates, and It
now is proposed that this course he taken and that he be
properly tried by his "employers".
We may be sure ihe people of Britain will watch tbe
developments of this case wilh considerable interest. The
fortunes of the Labor Parly at the general election next
year may bo Influenced in no small degree hy the treat-
menl which llle Miners' Fedratlon may find il advisable to
band out to Mr. Cook. He is an unblushing disciple of
Moscow and would gel liltle sympathy from the general
public if his Impeachment should take the form of bis

ALTHOUGH lie may like to believe that tho majority
of the people take him as seriously as he takes himself, Mr. A. J. Cool;, the (lory secretary of thc Miners'
Federation of Great Britain, is still somewhat of a nuisance lo many of bis colleagues and a bit of a hindrance
to the cause of more cordial relations between employer
and employee in the Old Country.
There is an indication now, however, that Mr. Cook has
been playing fast and loose with the interests of the rank
and file of the trade union members who (ind money to
provide hfm with bis annual salary. A despatch from
London tells us Ihat "astonishing revelations have been
made that he bad been willing to consent to a reduction
of wages in the mines and to co-operation between thc
workers and mine owners." Apparently he had entered
into this arrangement with the Government, but failed to
EVERY line in a newspaper costs the proprietor
something. If it is for the benefit of an individual or an organization it should be paid
for. Only last week we had a request for a few
lines advertising a certain sale, yet if we had gone
to that sale we would have been expected to pay
spot cash for anything we wanted. If the grocer
were asked to contribute groceries to one abundantly able to pay for them, he would refuse.
The proprietor of a newspaper must pay for the
free advertising if the beneficiary does not, and
yet it is one of the hardest things to be learned by
many that a newspaper has space in its columns
to rent and must rent them to live. To give away
rent for anything less than living rates is as fatal
to a newspaper as for a landlord to furnish rent

Stealing through the oven portal.

A Steelhead, best ot all the fish, swam up the Courtenay River,
To die in peace, that was his wish, at death he did not quiver,
He'd heard about, the local boys, at'ormiiig up a club,
How they'd make an awful noise, when drinking in a pub,
How when they got outside some beer, they'd tell a big fish story,
How they'd tell lies and never fear, then GIN UP on their glory.
And now to prove it" tales were true, or prove If they were take,
He thought, he'd Bpend a day or two, so journeyed up the Lake.
Arriving there he swam about, to Horbury's point and back,
And there expecting to crutch trout, was Joe and brother Jack.
The water seemed as in a churn, as Joe lushed out his files,
Uut brother Jack slipped on a worm, to show that he was wise;
The Steelhead, thinking this was fine, at Jack's worm took a peck,
Jack struck, and, missed, and then liis line was wrapped around Joe's neck;
"You blinking fool", roared Joe, quite sore, as lie made bis flies go SWISH,
"Keel In >our line and take an oar, I'll learn you how to llsh";
Just then ihere wus an awful splash, us the fish played with his fly,
Joe whipped his line just like a lash, Jack ducked to save his eye;
Now this went on for quite a while, when the llsh, to get Joe's goat,
Cume to tlie surface wilh a smile, und looked Into the boat;
At such a sight their hair did rise, they both lost their Fedoras,
It span eight inch between tbe eyes, he told uh In Uonora's.
Then Mr. Steelhead moved around, and saw a funny sight,
Salmon eggs strewn on the ground, and not u llsh to bite;
Hy Ibis the ruin was coming down, I wonder Who's ihat fellah?1
1 know, one of the lads from town, It's i'arky and bis umbrella;
I'll give him a bite before I go, in case that he should founder,
Pll tint up all his <nn of roe, be called me a bleeding boumlub,
Willi :t belly full and feeling good, he bended for the dam,
Un the other side, In happy mood, sat another Ihherman,
Well, well, hut lhal is sun- some book. Ill bet ihat guy's called Hannah,
M's blin alright. I've hud a look, it's halted with bauaiiu;
Well, I want none of his fruit diet, and I have other calls.
And then he slipped olY very quiet, to navigate the fulls;
The Cable hole was bis next slop, well, dash il. look who's here,
A Welshman, well I'll give a flop. Trotn him thefo'B naught to feur,
Look wliai he's got, a cast of gut, I bet lis four years old,
I'll give a pull, the crazy mult, to think that thai  would bold,
Ills tackle's gone, he's finished now. Wattle told the same old story,
He'd lost a llsh as big's a cow. we'll leave him in his glory,
Meantime, at the Cower Hunt hole, there stood one, Texas Coe,
Fishing away with a dollar pole, disregarding friend or foe;
Tlie Steelhead saw a splash of color, 1 know who that ia quite well,
I'll bet that's Texas for no oilier, fishes with 1'armachee Belle;
Deep in the water Dick felt a pull, let out a terrible shout,
Then cursed himself for being a fool, his false teeth had dropped out;
Thinking he'd had enough of fun. that fish went to the Bluff,
Ami there found Haywire aud his chum, both looking rather tough,
They'd never caughJ a fish all day, and this had raised their ire,
And all that one was heard to say. was "The cursed things haywire;
The thing was haywire sure enough, it nearly made them weep,
For on their wives fhey ran a bluff, told them not to buy meat;
That Steelhead pitied the awful plight, and snapped at Hughle's hook,
Then there began n terrible fight, a regular Donnybrook.
"You hold her, kid". Haywire cried, "That potlleker wins the cup".
Just then old llughie heaved and pried, to get that Steelhead up;
Tho fish io help him swam Inshore, and Haywire waded in,
He meant to have that fish's gore, to land ft was the thfng;
Ho swung his fool to kick il out, he caught it fair and square.
He till old Hughle on ihe snout, and turned him tn the air,
Then nil three scrambled on the beach, it was a wrestling match,
That fish waa nearly out of reach, when Haywire shouted catch;
Ho threw it In tbe air to Hug, who held the open basket,
It caught him in behind the lug, stretched him ns for his casket;
That steelhead knew his time had come, so turned his belly up,
Aud that's how Haywire and his chum, caught the fish that won the cup.
I've a secret to tell, and I might as well, although they both knock me dead,
That  fish weighed higher, because Haywire, filled Its' belly full of lead.

Mining  and   Industrial   Record
A correspondent has been contributing an interesting series of articles
to the Victoria Times concerning the
economic geology of Vancouer Island,
and Ibe probability Of this portion of
the province becoming an important
producer of copper.    It had come to
be an accepted axiom that Vancouver
Island was a poor place to look for
ore on account of tlie former economic ore deposits having been  removed
by glaclation, leaving only the roots
of  the  former  mineral   vein  (system.
These, it  was  claimed, carried  sufficiently rich specimens to lure the
mining investor on a fruitless search
for Alladln's lamp.   The writer points
out the fallacy of that idea as shown
by thc successful development of tho
j Old Sport .Mine at Quatslno; the re-
j cent strike ot a  new am!  rich  oro-
i body In the Tyee Mine; and conditions
I al   the   Tidewater   Copper   Aline,   on
, Sydney Inlet:
The writer concludes that "there is 1
I a greater area (on Vancouver Island) J
I for ihe deposition of ore from veiu-
j dykes than there is on thc Mainland."
j He bases his conclusion on the large
| area  of Carboniferous  limestone  itn-
! pregnated with copper mineralization
| and   adds:   "Another   feature   which
| makes for good dividends Is the ease
i with which ore can be handled.    At I
I no point are they at any great dig-1
tance from the sea, water powers are I
nearly always available for concentra- ;
lion, and there is no reason to shut !
down operations nt any season of thc I
The association of gold and magne-
tite is stated by the writer to be pe- I
cullar   to   Vancouver   Island   copper j
ores, but one of the very reasons why
a  leading American economic geologist turned down Coast Copper some
years ago was the association of the
copper with magnetite.   This, he contended, was an unfavorable Indication
for copper deposits of commerloal value.   That opinion has boon prevalent
and Is based on the theory that tho
occurrence of the oxide iu this form
suggests insufficient sulphur to com- j
bine with the copper to form chalco- !
pyrlte, which is the usuul commercial
ore of copper.
On the other hand these ore depos-
its are generally of contact metamor- I
phic type, associated with limestone !
and the copper occurrs In such as
bornite or chaloclte. In his work on
"Leached Outcrops" Locke shows that
limestone gangues of such ores are
unfavorable to leaching and alteration
of these ores to chalcopyrlte, so the
magnetite theory as an unfavorable
Indication may have to be relegated
to a place in the abandoned theories
Of economic geology.
Owing to their erratic character,
contact motamorphic ore deposits ln
limestone have been viewed with .suspicion In British Columbia; but that
Idea Is due for a change. The great
Copper Queen Mine of Blsbee is a replacement in Carboniferous limestone,
b rock which is abundant on Vancouver Island, and with which contact
motamorphic ore deposits are frequently associated, particularly If the
limestone fs dolomitlc and sufficiently
fraciurcd or cavernous to allow the

There is one chance, in thirty-six
billion of it happening again.
At the town or Ague, .Manitoba, on i
September 20, a fanner named C. Tl. j
Sbmerville loaded part of his crop of
Number 'I Durum into Canadian National Car No, 428871, Tho car went!
to the head of the lakes, was emptied
and started west again. On October
1, eleven days later, It left the same
station. Argue, loaded with grain
from the fields of the same farmer,
0. H. Somervllle. This time the
wheat was .Number \ Durum, hut the
car was the same and the farmer was
the same.
T. P. White, Canadian .Nation:.!;
Railway's superintendent of car service, thinks tho Incident Is a reflection of the smoothness with which
the great machine of grain transportation, handling million of bushels
is running. But he realizes ttr.it it
will never happen again in his lifetime. "^
From statlst'cs as to tli" number
of box earn and shipping stations in
the went, and taking an average of 76
farmers who might possibly load ai n
point like Argue, ii has been calculated thai ihere is one chance In thlr-
ty-stx billion of n car going bach to
the same shipper at   the same point.

bro mines, and although the values
have been loo low to admit of economic operation on the average price
of copper Tor the past ten years, that
condition is changing, so that there In
every reason to believe the time Is
noi far distant when, with the maintenance of the present markets, something may be done to turn these to
economic   account.     The   newspaper
press and the people of Vancouver
Island need waking up us to the possibilities of mining development in
a section of the province that the late
u. Marpoto used to describe as "an
Empire in itself."
An all-Ciinadiiiii dlrocl telephone
circuit from Vancouver lo Calgary
was openod  on  November 0  bj   the
British Columbia Teloph  Company
thus giving a faster Borvlco l better
transmission  between  coasl  and  Alberts points.
Previously it had It 'essnrj to

The new all-Canadian circuit ha;
required the stringing of BOO milca

the end of the year or soon after the

concessions by the West Kootenay
Light ami Power ('u. Unit will permit
control of rules being brought beyond
controversy within the Jurisdiction of
the  Water Hoard,
Hon. .Mr. Burden alao has been active in seeking solutions, with liis
confrere of Agriculture, of lhe Sumas
and Okanagan jigsaw puzzles; aud his
investigations of tlie status and prospects of Kootenay lowlands redemption already have resulted in a del-
Inate offer by private Interests to undertake the reclamation of bet ween
50,0(10 and 60,000 fertile acres in the
Kootenay Flats near Creston. This
.scheme necessarily involves International negotiatinns in certain phases,
hut the Indications arc thai it can be
satisfactorily carried through.
The Lauds' Minister's next big tusk
will be to equitably decide between
the Treasury interests and thc special
whether or not increases in royalties
shall automatically become collectable under existing legislature, or
further concessions be made to operators in the timber industry.
To date It has fallen upon Attorne..
General  Pooley lo draw the main attack of opponeents of the new government.   In public opinion, however,
he has gained rather than lost ground
—in his demonstrated determination
to  divorce  police and  liquor control
from   politics,  to  restore   respect  for
the   administration   of  justice   in   iti
principles    and    methods,    and    his
straightforward  demands   that  there
be clean-ups where clean-ups are overdue.    In this connection his  latest
move   has   been   directed   toward   restoring law and observance in  New
Westminster.     To   tiie   police   Commissioners  of  that   city  he  sent  nt
October's end an  unequivocal  ultimatum in these plain words but hard:
Having had complaints  of the  illegal  sale of liquor in  New  Westminster and general  failure to enforce the provision of the Govern-
ent Liquor Act, I instructed the Superintendent of Provincial Police to
send a constable to investigate conditions in that city.   The constable
made  an  inspection   in   September
and reported Unit he visited several
hotels   iu   New   \Vestminster--Itus-
Bel, Dunsmuir, Commercial. Premier
Windsor and Central—and th.it in
all of these hotels, with the exception   of  the  Premier,  regular  bars
are conducted in wide-open fashion;
gambling is being carried on in the
bar-room of [he  llussel. and  there
was what he termed a blind pig In
the   Savoy   hotel.
"These matters were, under my instructions, directly reported by tho
Provincial police 'o the Chief of
Police of New Westminster, September 11 last, and it was assumed thu
action would ho taken by the authorities of the City of New Westminster to remedy these conditions.
"Within the last few days another
provincial constable was instructed
tn visit New Westminster and report what action had bcen taken by
the authorities of the City of New
Westminster, and whether the conditions complained of, and reported
to thc New Westminster police, still
existed or not.
"I have now hefore me the result
of the investigation, which shows
that the same conditions obtain anil
that no bona fide attempt bns been
made by the police nutliorlties ot
the city to remedy these conditions,
"This is therefore to advise you as
as the parties responsible for the
administration of police affairs in
the City of New Westminster Unit if
these conditions are not remedied
within a week from this date, without further not lee to your Board or
Commissioners steps will he taken
by ibe Provincial police to prosecute
in tlie matte;' . May I suv that th i
Information given to this Department shows that conditions in New
Westminster have been disgraceful
so far as the enforcement of the
Liquor Act i- concerned.
"Should if bo found necessary for
the Provincial police to take steps
to enforce the Act in the City of
.New Westminster, all costs, charges
and expenses entailed In so doing
will be charged to the City, Thla
Department Is determined that the
conditions mentioned above shall lie
permanently remedied: iberefore
please govern yourselves accordingly. A copy nf ihls communication has been sent to tbe Clerk of
the City Council for the Information
of the Mayor and Councillors."
In this joint capacity as Minister
of Mine" and of Labor, Hon. W. A.
McKenzie continues to justify expectations. No longer can it lie chargM
thnt these departments, or either nf
them., do not function. With respect
tn mining promotions nf any questionable bona fides, he acts on the instant of voiced suspicions; nnd In tho

PARTS—That the distance between

metres during the last 300 years is one
of the possible deductions from new

out that the difference may be due to

also be due to the generally accepted

Health Habits j
A great deal has been written and]
said about health habits, ami about i
the importance of starting the child |
on life's adventure with proper'
health habits. There is no doubt that |
it is just as easy to establish right]
habits as wrong ooes, Habits are j
acts which we repeat, without think-]
it:;; about them nt the time wo per-]
form them. We do not eat from our
knives because il Is our habit to put]
only forks and spoons Into our raouthd |
We do this without thinking because'
back in our childhood days our parents, by example and correction, es- i
tablished this as n habit with us.
Those who have established that'
most important h.ihil of washing tho
hands Ibefore eating, practice this
babll and do noi feel comfortable
if they sit down to eat without Washing. The same is true ns regards the
cleaning  of  the   teeth.    The  person
who cleans ills teeth regularly finds
that liis mouth feels dirty if he misses
the regular cleansing.
These and other simple, regular
habits can be established in the child
by a consistent effort on the pan of
the parents. The effort will he repaid!
many times in the hetter health of]
Uie child, and lty thc happier and less
troublesome existence for parent nnd
child that, will grow out of a life that
is  regular.
The child is not a small adult; he
is not tp be looked upon as such. Mis
desire for piny is naturaj and should
lie encouraged. We do noi want to
make him "a little nia„". Proper
health habits do not interefere with
his child life; they help to make him
enjoy It more and to keep him well,
also, to prepare him, for the adult
years which lie ahead of hfm,

pleased to know ihat the Courtenay
Club have made application for space

If the Courtenay eleven (ran keep going, cricket in this district will receive d decided boost and thero Is no
reason why many more games between Cumberland and Courtenay
should not he attempted, Our readers
can take it from us that It wus not
ihe raull of the Cimibeihiiiders thai
more games were not played against
Courtenay. We have been told that
the loeals were ready to play at uny
time but thai the boys from the neighboring city bad trouble getting an

Courtenay club making application
for space so early that a more determined effort is going to be made fur
next summer.
