His Majesty 1b King.
In the lights and shadows ot history, there are few events which present more in the way of parallel and
contrast than the ceremony of today
and a ceremony of thirty yenrs ago
which It serveB to recall. Thirty
years ago, the British Empire was
c lebratlng the Diamond Jubilee of
Queen Victoria's accession to the
Throne. This year, Canada is celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of the
Confederation of her provinces. Thirty
years ago, at the heart of the Empire
of which she was Queen, tbe revered
and venerable Victoria was bestowing, as a mark of royal favor, a
knighthood on Wilfrid Laurier. at the

the shores of thc St. Laurence.
It was exactly 200 years from the
time at which his lirst ancester arrived in Canada, that Laurier was born
on November 20, 1841, nt St. Un, a
French-Canadian village not many
miles distant from .Montreal. In that
Interval of 200. years. Canada had
passed from a French to a British
possession. More remarkable still,
Canada, largely French - Canadian,
had remained British, when elsewhere
in North America. British Colonies
In 1770 declared their independance.
Within this period also, ilumlg the
war of 1812-14, French-Canadian loyalty once more aided in preserving
Canada to the British Crown.
The seventy - seven years which
elapsed between the birth of Sir Wilfred Laurier in 1S41 and his death ou
February 17. 1919, contain the other
epoch-making events of our history
—the establishment of responsible
self-government, the Confederation

Boat Service Will
Prove Big Asset
To This District
(Powell River. Aug. 3.)
The daily service established by
Captain Foote with the motorshlp
Comox, Is appreciated by Powell
River, and lt Is hoped that the patronage accorded him wlll grow as
time goes on. The service Is creating a spirit of tratcrnallsm that heretofore has been almost impossible.
One of the local lodges has the "Comox" chartered for a trip to the
Island next Saturday and Sunday.
It Is not unlikely that some- at least,
of the other societies represented
here, will follow this lead In the near
future. There are enough societies
in Comox district and Powell River
to patronize the new service nt least
once every month for a year. It was
Captain Foote's sturdy little ship that
made lt possible for the Courtenay
baseball team to cross over the pond
last Sunday.
The picnic committee of the em.
ployees of the Canadian Collieries
took the Initiative last week and
started a fund for the sufferers in the [
recent disastrous fire at No. 5 Japanese Town. Two representatives ol
the picnic committee waited on the
Council on Monday laBt and laid an
appeal before tho city fathers with
thc result that S150 was tlonated by
the Council. The representatives also
waltetl on the management of the
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd.,
who very generously donated the sum
of $250. The picnic committee hud
previously voted $100 from their funds
and with $500 now In sight, It Is proposed to make an appeal during the
next few days to the citizens, As donations nre received by the picnic
committee, acknowledgement wlll be
announced through the columns of

most distinctively Canadian. It embodied much of Canada's past as well
as of Its present. It spoke to us of
the two great races that have shaped
our destiny, and of a broader toleration In religious faiths.
In his ancestry, by direct descent,
Laurier went back to the beginnings
of French colonization In Canada,
Allied to the flrst enduring French
settlement established by Cliamplaiu
at Quebec In 1608 was the sister settlement at Montreal founded by Sleur
l)e Malssonneuve, In 1641. Among the
number who, as soldier colonists with
Sleur de Malsonneuve, sought to gain
a wider dominion for their sovereign
and their faith, was Laurler's first
Canadian ancestor. Others of his ancestors In the years Immediately following. For eight generations ln unbroken successions, his forefathers
pioneered ln the wilds af tho Lauren-
tlans, making for their children, and
troduced a higher standard of soccer
than that prevailing In New Zealand,
and that tin* cordial spirit ruling
throughout the tour augurs well for
closer relations between tlle two Dominions In future.
The outstanding players of the
team were Tall. Monaghan. Turner
and Archibald, ail with the exception
of Turner being members of B.C.
teams. One noteworthy feature of
the tour has been the success of ox-
Cumberland players iu the persons of

Local Ball Tossers
Visit Powell River
Under a boiling hot sun, a baseball
team composed of members of the old
Courtenay team, augmented by players from Cumberland, lost a ragged
game to Powell River on the Paper-
makers' diamond on Sunday afternoon, It was a regular slug-fest,
with the Courtenay players getting
the edge with the willow, but the
| error column easily tells the reason
! why they lost; they booted, muffed
| and threw wild balls all over the lot.
j We stopped scoring them when we
reached nine errors for the loggers,
I as we did not'vant to get Into double
] figures The papermukers started
their scoring ln their halt of the first
Innings with three; Courtenay chalked up two In thc third, but the paper-
makers came back with three more.
In the fourth frame the loggers
scored two more and blanked Powell
River, and In thc fifth they scored one
and two respectively. The loggers
thought they hud the game on Ice In
the sixth when they brought in five
runs and blanked the papermakers but
thc latter put In a new pitcher with
the fruity appellation ot "Banana,"
who held thc visitors to one hit for a
lone tally during the rest of the gnme,
while his team mates tallied three In
the seventh and five more In the
eighth, making It unnecessary to play
lhe last half ot the ninth, the final
score bolng: Courtonay 11; Powell
River, 16.
A return game ls to bo played on
the Courtonay diamond next Sunday
afternoon at three o'clock and a
battle royal Is anticipated.

As recorded three weeks ago in
The Islander, the Misses Carrie and
Katie Richardson, daughters of Mr,
and Mrs. G. J. Richardson, Maryport
Avenue, Cumberland, travelling to
England for a holiday, on board the
Montcalm, had a thrilling experience
when the vessel hit an Iceberg two
days out from Montreal.
The following clipping, taken from
an oltl country paper just received,
pays a glowing tribute to the quick
work and action of the captain:—
"Over a thousand passengers on
board lhe Canadian Pacific Railway
liner Montcalm, which reached Greenock recently, had a thrilling experience, many women fainting, when
that liner struck an Iceberg In the
Straits of Belle Isle, two days out
from Montreal, on her voyage to the
Clyde and Liverpool.
Dense fogs were met In the- passage
down the St. Lawrence River, and at
2.0 p.m. on Sunday, July 3, the passengers were startled to hear a crunching noise antl to find the vessel heeling over to the port side. The Montcalm had slid on to a submerged ledge
of a huge berg which ruse high above
the funnels of the vessel.
With some way on, she slid along
the ledge, and eventually righted herself.    The paint on part of the bilge

During the early hours of Monday
morning one of the pioneers of Royston, Mr. David Roy, residing at the
junction of the Courtenay, Union Boy
and Roy Roads, passed away peacefully In his Bleep.
Mr. David Roy was a native of Plc-
tou County, Nova Scotia, where he
was born In 1869. In 1887 the whole
family, consisting of William Roy,
wife, two sons and two daughters,
following the westward trend, came
across the continent to settle on Vancouver Island. After working for a
short period at Wellington and Nanaimo, the whole family came to
Cumberland, then a small mining
camp and since then have made that
district their home. William Roy, re-
cognizing tbe possibilities of Royston
as both a farming and pleasure resort, took up a section of land there
and upon his death, a few years ago,
the estate came to the deceased.
After working In the mines with
his father, the young mau came to
reside at Royston (named from the
family, Roy's town), being engaged
in putting through the original road
to Cumberland (Roy's Road), and It
wus with greot pride be saw its development from n mere trail to what
Is now the finest stretch of highway
in the district. In 1899 he married
Miss Isabel Stewart, also of Plctou
County, nnd his surviving family Include the widow, one son and one
daughter. Being interested in all local activities, his friends remembir
him as a staunch supporter of the
Conservative banner, a member of
Hiram Lodge No. 14, A. F. ft A. M.,
and also a member of the Native
Sons of Canada whilst his gifts as a
violinist made him deservedly popular
in musical circles, where his absence
will be moBt acutely felt.
It was the writers' good fortune to
have known him long and well, and
we only knew him to esteem him
more highly as the years passed by.
Today we miss his kindly smile and
friendly greeting; we long In vain to
hear the jovial laughter and to feci
again his genial presence.
For thc last six years Mr. Roy has
been the E. & N. station agent at
Royston Station antl passengers will
miss his cheery word of god-speed
to the parting and welcome to the incoming visitor.
The funeral, which    was    held on
Wednesday, under Courtenay Masonic
auspices,   waB   largely   attended   by I
many friends from all over the district, attesting to the high regard In
which the deceased was held.   A short [
service was held at the family res-
idciice by the Rev. E. O. Robathan.

Opium Seizure At
Collieries Station
Acting on Information, Provincial
Police Matthews and Fenton made the
Belzure of five tins of opium on Wednesday last, at the Canadian Collieries Station.
The opium was cleverly concealed
In the hearts of cabbages, the heart
being taken out and the opium substituted. It was Impossible for anyone, not knowing of Its presence, to
discern any peculiarity about the
cabbages, being perfect ln every respect. The shipments were addressed
to Wing Lee, a merchant of Chinatown. There was one shipment came
In with Tuesday's freight and one on
Wednesday. On discovering the opium, Fenton waited for thc Chinaman
to claim the freight and on doing
so he was arrested.
This seizure leads up to the conclusion that opium has been shipped
Into the local Chinatown spasmodically and ln future a stricter watch
will  be kept.
Boy Jumps From
Moving Train; Is
Badly Injured
On Thursday (yesterday) a very
painful injury was sustained by Victor TomaBsI as a result of jumping
from the train bringing the morning
shift miners from work.
It appears that Tomassi, along
with another boy, had been out to
Comox Lake, and on returning, the
boy Tomassi was with, had been entrusted with bis father's pick. On
nearing Cumberland, the train slows
down considerably before stopping,
and It was at this time that the boys
Jumped off. The boy with the pick
jumped first and Tomassi followed
immediately, landing on the pick,
which penetrated into the groin and
leaving a deep gash. Tomassi ls In
the Cumberland Hospital at present,
under the care of Dr. B, R. Hicks, and
Is progressing as well as can bc expected.
ThlB accident will serve as a warning to other children who travel to
Comox Lake by means of this train.
The Canadian Collieries have signs
posted up on the conches warning the
people against jumping from the train
whilst In motion, and unless they are
obeyed the children wlll be stopped
from riding to and fro.
Mr. Frank Burde, general manager
of the Vancouver Dally Province, accompanied by Mrs. Burde, was In the

FRIDAY,  AUGUST  5th,  1927
SOCIOLOGISTS and psychologists have rediscovered the great moral importance of the
home as an institution. But what is the
home? The answer to that question is not as
obvious as may appear at flrst sight. Parents
alone do not make a true home. Parents today
make more sacrifices for their children than ever
before. They may even devote more anxious
thought than was ever devoted to the physical,
mental and moral training of their children, and
yet the net result may be, and often is, disappointing.   Why ?
Because, some thinkers assert, parental effort
must be supplemented by the constant, subtle indirect influence of the home as a distinct institution. That is, the home is a moral as well is a
physical entity. To live in a real home, to study,
to rest and amuse oneself at home, to be fond of
certain rooms, bookshelves, pictures, furniture,
and to entertain friends and discuss matters of
current interest during or after dinner, is to be
the recipient of all manner of impressions and
stimuli that mold character and socialize the individual.
Perhaps the influence of the home as a separate social institution has not been stressed sufficiently in late years, although much has been
said about the disappearance of the home in the
larger cities and its replacement by small flats
and apartments in which neither parents nor
children spend much of their leisure hours.
"Back to the Home" is a significant slogan.
Parents as well as children need the old-fashioned
comfortable individual home.
DID you ever stop to think what a slippery,
slimy, vile earth this was in the early days
before our beautiful sun had begun to put
in order? Great reptiles crawled through the
swamps and life was at its lowest form. It is still
bad enough in spots like the Florida everglades
or the African jungles, but it shows signs of improvement.
This was a vile and savage earth of ours before
the sun of education began to warm civilization
and develop the human mind. The cave man
killed with his club and yanked his woman about
by the hair of her head. We still have bitter
prejudices, superstitutions, envy, malice and
hatred to contend with, but we are growing kinder and more considerate of each other.
Yes, the poor, old, scarred earth is growing
better and those with their faces turned toward
the sun can see the light of a brighter day coming.
WHAT becomes of all these things we call
thoughts?   Where do all the good stories
we hear go?   Why is it when you want
to think of the name of a book or a story or a play
you never can recall it?
We know a man who says no thought is ever
lost. He says our brain is just like a nice com-
etent filing cabinet. Everything you know nnd
everything you hear,and everything you read is
filed away there all in order, and the clever people
are the ones who never lose the key to the cabinet
They can always unlock the door and put in a
thumb and pull out a plum, just whenever they
feel like it.
Dull people have the filing cabinets, too, but
they lose the key, and that's why they can't remember the things they forget.
After all, that knob on your neck is a wonderful piece of machinery and it is truly remarkable
how many old recollections you have stored up
in that thing you call your brain. Did you ever
stop to think that what you have in that wonderful cabinet represents all you have in the world ?
Lose the power to think and you become nothing.
Fined For Drunkenness
Owing lo many complaints having
been received as to the conduct of
certain frequenters at the Saturday
night dances at Royston Pavilion,
the Provincial Police took the matter in hand on Saturday night lasl
with the result that four youths were
hulled before Magistrate Hames ou
.Monday evening charged with being
in a state of intoxication in a public
place. They all pleaded guilty and
were each fined $25.00 and costs. In
deference to the mothers of these
miscreants we refrain from publishing their names on this occasion.

appearance he was markedly disiin-
guished. His manner and bearing
spoke of the chivalry of his race,
and iu more particulars than one, lie
gave to chivalry its highest expression. His great natural endowments
were enriched by u nobility of character that made his personnallty one
of rare dignity and serenity. Wlier*.-
ever he went, lie seemed to shed
"a constant influence, a peculiar
grace." -He was singulary devoid of
jealousies and prejudices, singulary
charitable in his estimates of others
and singulary forgiving. In all things
hc was a great gentleman. His public and private life were suns peur et
sans reproche. He was the type of
leader whom men delight to follow,
and whom a nation is proud to honour.
Laurier was a great parliamentarian. His life was centered in tlie
House of Commons and its associations. Neither law nor journalism
claimed more than the beginnings of
his career. Once he became the leader of his party, it was amid the affairs
of tlie state tliat his life wus wholly

unsurpassed and which he exercised witli a natural and equal grace
in tlie French and English languages

were attracted by his words, and
f I above all by the charm of their del-
[ Ivery and expression. Behind the
gift of utterance lay a-mllld keen in
its perceptions and richly stored in
a knowledge of affairs, in history and

lie owed to the writings nnd example
of such men as Macaulay nnd Burke,

British parliamentary procedure and
practice the palladium of liberty, lie
was an upholder of constitutional
monarchy and bad a very real concern for the Unity of lhe British Empire of which he believed lhe Crown
to be the great bond. There was. lie
said, something which appealed strongly to the Imagination, and which
for him had a great all ruction in an
agglomeration of continents under the
British Crown. The firm basis of the
British Empire, next to lhe Brlllsn
Crown, he believed to lie In the complete autonomy of tlle self-governing
units. Addressing the then Prince of
Wales, now His Majesty King George
on the occasion of the Tercentenary

Wilfred said: As I advance in years

his task has been performed, and our
high admiration of the statue itself.
As Canadians, we share his pride,
that the honor of executing the statue
of Sir Wilfrid Laurier now erected on
Parliament Hill should have fallen
to one of whom Sir Wilfrid himself
would have been more than proud,
ami who lias given to his country one
more notable example of the artistic
genius of the people of the province
of Quebec.
In conclusion, ns u resident of Ottawa, may I lie permitted to say, with
what pride we of this capital city behold this statue, In thc place which
lias heen  accorded  it   on   Parliament
' Hill.   How befitting are the surround-
j lugs!    Here are the Houses of Par-
liiimcnl  with which Sir Wilfrid's life
was so intimately associated; yonder,
are the Laurciitlan Hills that he ao
dearly   loved;   and,   there,   the   gate
through which lie was wont to pass.
