CUMBERLAND,   BRITISH  COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1920.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM.
TWENTY-FOURTH OF
MAY CELEBRATION
A meeting of the 24th of May Celebration Committee took place
on Thursday evening. The meeting was fairly well attended, but
not as well as might be expected. It was decided to go ahead
with the programme, as it was stated that the grounds, now under
construction, would be ready for that date. The people of Bevan
are taking on the task of electing the May Queen and her attendants and carrying the programme through. As the girls available
for the occasion in Bevan are limited in number it is just possible
that some of the Cumberland young ladies may be called on to
assist. The school teachers are taking up the matter and they
can be relied upon* to make it a success. A committee was appointed to interview the Collieries Company, offering the assistance of
the Celebration Committee in completing the grounds should
occasion demand. It was stated that as one of the Vancouver
teams was scheduled to play here on that date with the local team,
an appropriation of one hundred dollars be granted them to help
pay expenses and that they be allowed to take up a collection on
the grounds to make up the balance. This was left to the Sports
and Programme Committee. It was recommended that the Committee on Collections ask that the sum of one dollar be contributed
by the employees.

THIRTY-CENT SUGAR
IS NOW PREDICTED
Ottawa Observer of Market Says Price Still Will Soar—Raw Product Dearer Now Than Stocks Refineries Are Using.
OTTAWA, April 30.—There is every prospect of an early and
considerable increase in the price of sugar, it was declared today
by a man closely in touch with the market. The present price,
high as it is, is based on the former cost price of the raw product
in Cuba. Counting all the costs to the grocery store and basing
them on the new Cuban price, a pound of sugar is now worth a
little over twenty-nine cents. The fact that people are not paying
so much is because the refineries are still using the stocks for
which they paid the lower price, it was said. It is declared the
price will soon be thirty cents a pound.
WEDDINGS.
•    Blackburn-Junes.
At the home of Mr. Fred Janes at
Grantham on Wednesday there was
solemnized the marriage of Mr. Austin
Blackburn, only son of Mr. John
Blackburn of Grantham, to Miss Margery Janes, eldest daughter ot Mr.
Fred Janes, also of Grantham. The

sweet peas and asparagus fern. The
groom's present to the bridesmaid was
a pearl crescent.
Mr. Bob Woods was best man, nnd

known In the valley and a large
number ot friends gathered tb witness
the   ceremony.    Numerous  presents
were received. After the wedding a
dainty buffet luncheon was served, at
which the health of the bride anil
groom was toasted. The happy couple
departed for a visit to the coast cities
and dn their return wlll make their
home at the ranch of thc groom on the
Island Highway.
Ileofh-Hiirnes.
One of the prettiest weddings In the
social history of the city was solemnised at noon today at St. Paul's
Church hy the Rev. S. J. Ryall, the
principals in thc Interesting event being Mr. William Booth, son of Mr. and
Airs. Tom Booth of Courtenay, and
Miss Ivy Barnes, duughter of Mr. and
Mrs. E. C. Barnes, Milton Street.
The bride, who is one of Nanaimo's
most charming daughters, looked

attended by Miss Nellie Rawllnson,
wearing a beautiful saxe blue Jersey
silk dress trimmed with georgette, and

present to the bride was a set of ermine furs, to tlle bridesmaid a pearl
brooch and to the groomsman ji diamond stick pin.
You can generally tell what kind of
man he Is by looking ut his backyard.
And thc question that every householder should ask himself is, is It as
well kept ns II ought to be? It is a
privilege to have a backyard, even If It
is u small one. aud those who nre fortunate enough to have such u place
for fresh air and foi' Us garden should
appreciate Ihelr advantages nnd should
take cure of their little yards. This Is
perhaps nol so easy us II seems to he.
and In some English loenlltles the authorities arc discouraging buck yards
because the people lake so Utile care
ol* (hem. but this ought never to be
the case In an Intelligent city or town.
Thc cleanliness of a place Is In rails
to the health education of its people
and you can always tell tlie standards
of the population by looking ut their
backyards.
When thc people can maintain their
gardens und lawns in good order they
will then be able to use their Influence
towards keeping clcuu the streets of
their town. It Is true, therefore, that
the condition of the streets will Indicate pretty well what is the condition
of the backyards, and these will let
the observer know with reference to
the Intelligence of the citizen. This is
the time for spring cleaning. Brighten

Cumberland would look much more
attractive to the visitor If grass seed
was more liberally used, which would
also help considerably to nllay dust
on windy days.
It is to, be hoped the conditions
which are marring the paint on the
building of the town will not long
continue and that owners will be able
to get their buildings In presentable
appearance again In the near future.
This is a fairly clean, well kept town,
but there is a little clearing up that
would Improve matters and produce
better health conditions. Now is the
time to do this, especially as thc Mayor
and Aldermen are* calling upon all
citizens to make next week "Clean-up
Week." Gather up all your litter and
rubbish In a heap on the street or Iann
and the civic wagon will do the rest.
That leaves little excuse for untidiness in and around the city.

Change of Time
At Ilo-llo Theatre
Commencing Monday next the picture shows at the llo-Ilo Theatre will
commence at.7 p.m. with a continuous
performance until 10 o'clock. These
hours will continue for the summer
months.

magnificent picture showing nt the
theatre on Tuesday next, when Katherine MacDonald, said to be the most
beautiful woman iu the world, will
apt car In "The Beauty Market."

Logging Truck Falls Through Bridge
A logging truck owned by Messrs. Vogel & Gordon broke a
stringer in the Renison Bridge on the Headquarters Road, near
Sandwick school house, on Tuesday and the trailer and logs went
through into the stream. The contractors at once went to w,prk
and rescued the trailer and logs but the bridge and road was out
of commission for about 24 hours. The driver jumped when the
trailer went through but the truck itself stayed on the bridge and
was not damaged.
It is apparent that.the bridge is in bad shape and was not designed for carrying such heavy loads. However, Messrs. Vogel &
Gordon are now strengthening it.
Last week the Provincial Bridge Inspector looked over thc
bridge and recommended that concrete piers and a steel span be
installed.   Perhaps this incident may hasten government action.
Nanaimo High School at Cumberland
The Cumberland High School football team expects to entertain
the High School football team from Nanaimo on Saturday, May 8.
Everything will be done to make things pleasant for the visitors.
The two teams will play a game at Bevan on the afternoon of the
above date. As the visitors will be in town over night a social
evening will be spent in the English Church Hall, when, in all
probability the girls of the High School will assist in entertaining
the boys from below. It is hard to form any opinion of the school
team that Nanaimo intends setting up as they have never been
seen in action by the boys here. The local team is training hard
and the improvement is quite marked in their play.
As there is enough material for two teams in the school here il
was decided to try and give all the boys a chance at the Nanaimo
team, playing some at home and others at Nanaimo. A practice
game will be played on Monday and Wednesday evenings of next
week, when all the bqys will be expected to turn out. The team to
play next Saturday will be announced later.
The boys of the High School wish to thank the citizens of Cumberland for the liberal way in which they contributed to the club
funds at the last collection made by the boys. A full financial
statement will be made shortly. In order to avoid further taxing
the generosity of the citizens thc boys have .substituted a system
in which each member of the club conributes a monthly subscription. This is expected to meet all requirements. The entire control of the club is in the boys' own hands, and their administrative
ability is thereby developed.
Sale of Work

Hall on Wednesday last. The stalls

Bryan. Mrs. Spicer, Mrs„ Bate, Mrs.
Morgan and Mrs. Walton, whilst Mrs.

helpers, took charge of tlie ten department. Such un undertaking entails a
tremendous amount of hard work, but
al the close of tlie day the ladies felt
amply rewarded, for the total receipts
were $301.75. After paying all expenses there will be a balance of over
$250 to go towards reducing thc mortgage on the Church Hall. The Hall
committee also received a handsome
donation of $110 from Mrs. Oliver and
Miss Gcoghan, profits on "A Day In
Flowerdom." The Hall committee
take this opportunity of thanking the
public for their support and Mrs.
Oliver and Miss Gcoghan for their
very generous donation.

Music and Photoplays
TONIGHT AT THE ILO-ILO:
Bessie Barriscale in
"JOSSELYN'S WIFE"
She was a little jealous of his young
and pretty stepmother. One night he
telephoned that he had -to remain at
his studio all night. The seme night
his step-mother's motor broke down ln
a storm and she was unable to go
home. The next morning they found
the young husband and his stepmother ln his stduio.
See how this thrilling love-quadrangle solved Itself In "Josaelyn's
Wife," starring Bessie Barrlscole, supported by Little Ben Alexander and an
able cast! at the Ilo-llo Theatre thit
evening.
MONDAVI
Does jealousy pay? Does unreqult-
ted love Justify murder? Both questions are adequately answered ln
Vivian Martin's new Paramount picture "Louisiana." which will be shown
at the Ilo-llo Theatre on Monday next.
In this story there Is a young mountaineer in whom Jealousy provokes an
insane desire to slay. Therefore, when
he sees the girl he loves In the company of another man his lirst impulse
Is to take a shot at him, and this he
does. This character played by Arthur
Allardt, furnishes much of the dramatic element ln this photoplay.
This is a picture of delightful comedy, tense drama and gripping tragedy,
and is well worth seeing uv everyone.
TUESDAY:
Katherine MacDonald, the Most
Beautiful Woman on the Screen,
in
"THE  BEAUTY MARKET"
Shrewd and radiant women challenge Amelle Thorndyke's game of
conquest in "The Beauty Market,"
where men of wealth barter gold for
wives whose entrance fees of gowns
and social rank are bought with suitors' gifts pawned for cash.- The richest buyer bids highest, and Amclle's
hand is won—a diamond brooch binds
the sale, until fate trades it for funds
to Kenneth Lnird, cynic and woman-
cold. A new game begins for Amelle,
in which she finds the greater prize
for wliieh she pays—and pays with a
price the Beauty Market derides with
scorn and sneers.
Katherine MacDonald, generally
conceded to be the world's most beautiful woman, will appear in the highly
sensational picture, "The Beauty Market," which has crowded theatres to
the doors wherever shown, at the Ilo-
llo Theatre on Tuesday next, for one
day only.
As Amelie Thorndide she is given a
remarkable part in this production,
depicting a girl whose beauty made
it possible for her to mingle In the ex
pensive society set but whose finances
were such that she was compelled to
pawn her gifts from suitors to meet
her debts. The picture 1b replete
with strong human interest situations
centred about the effort of a society
scandal sheet reporter to win for herself a wealthy man who was engaged
to Amelie. Her efforts are successful
in that they lead to the breaking of
Amelie's loveless engagement and lind
her a mate In Captain Kenneth Laird,
who decides to make her pay for deceiving him, und does.
A drama of society for people who
think—a play that will shame some
men and* delight all women.
WEDNESDAY:
Fannie Ward in "The Profiteers"
—An After-the-War Production in Five Acts.
Putting patriotism above dollars
when a crisis arose in our nation's
history. Richard Randall, attorney.
wealthy anil lilue-hlooded, has determined thnt the path of the profiteer
shall not lie flower-strewn, and accordingly conducts a crusade against
the cold-blooded tactics of Everett
Dearing whose tainted millions permit him to wield u power not restricted by any moral scruples. Dearing
secretly heuds u combination of conscienceless money-grubhers-prpoflteers
who greedily and selfishly and criminally swell their bank balances by
an organized yet well cloaked, food
trust.
Delighting in her husband's efforts
against the predatory wealth-seekers,
Beverley Randall Is an adoring and
devoted wife. Beverley thinks that
her Richard is the most wonderful
man on the earth. Tony Terle, an
idler and ne'er-do-well of the "lounge-
lizard" type. Is a frequent visitor at
Randall's house, Beverley finding him
handy as a cavalier while Richard ls
so busy in his crusade. Unknown to
urn* Terle  Is caught fast within  tlie
tentacles of the profiteer octopus, and
-vlien Randall becomes a menace to
their operations, Dearing stages an
elaborate and despicable "frame-up,"
placing Beverley Randall in a most
compromising position with Terle.
during Randall's absence on a lecturing tour.
While Terle's better nature Btrongly
rebelB at assisting In Dearlng's nefarious scheme, such strong pressure Is
brought to bear upon him that he hi
forced to acquiesce.
A few hours after Randall's departure one of Dearlng's hirelings calls
Beverley on the telephone and informs
ler that her husband has been serlous-
y Injured in an automobile accident
and is at Muller's Inn on the Canyon
•oad. Meanwhile Terle has been
irought to Muller's and forced to
•eglster as "Tony Terle and wife." His
bead Is bandaged and he Is laid upon
a bed as though seriously hurt. Witnesses with a flashlight apparatus are
planted In the next room which has a
communicating door.
When Beverley receives the message
ihe is well nigh distracted and hurriedly motors to Muller's. On dlscov-
rlng the trick which has been played
upon her she Indignantly upraids
Terle for his duplicity. He, carrying
out his part of the frame-up, endeavors
to embrace her, and at this moment n
flashlight photograph is taken and the
witnesses rush into tlle room.
One of the female witnesses comes
forward, claims Terle as her husband
and accuses Beverley of being the
woman who has come between them,
threateningto make her pay for It,
stating that "'twill be a pretty scandal
for the publlc to read about." She
exhibits the hotel register to Beverley's agonized eyes.
Finding that all her appeals to
Terle's manhood are In vain, Beverley
leaves the Inn, and returns home to a
night which seems an eternity, followed by a morning which brings no
solution to the terrible predicament.
To Beverley, in her despair, there
seems no way out but to Interview
Dearing, and accordingly she calls at
his offlce for that purpose. In his
cold-blooded manner he tells her that
if her husband does not stop his
speech-making and retract everything
lie has said against the profiteers before 8 o'clock the following night, the
photograph with a sensational story
will be given out for publication.
Tony Terle seeks to drown his disturbed conscience in strong liquor, but
finding that even intoxication does not
free his mind, Terle drunklngly decides to pay a personal visit to Dearing himself. However, in attempting
to enter Dearlng's office he ls rebutted.
but on seeing Beverley arrive he cunningly waits until she has been ushered Into the office, tben slips through
the open door and conceals himself
behind a large chair in the outer
room.
At 8 o'clock on the fatal evening,
Beverley not having been able to
bring herself to communicate with her
husband on the matter, and after suffering the tortures of hell, calls once
more at Dearlng's ofllce to make a
final appepall, and asks him not to
make her the means of ruining Richard and destroying his love for her— i
and she offers Dearing In payment for |
his silence all of her most costly
jewelry. Waving this aside, Dearing |
seizes the telephone and gives In u |
call for Randall's home. Goaded to
the limit Beverley smashes the telephone instrument, and there ensues a
physical struggle between the two,
during the course of which Dealing
fulls heavily across the table on to a
spike file. With a ghastly look on his
face he rises from the table and
slowly pulls Ihe spike from his breast.
Beverley rushes from the room fully
believing that she has been instrumental 111 causing Dearlng's death.
Meanwhile Richard   returns   homo,
finds that his wlto   ls   at   Dearlng's
office, and promptly goes to invest!-1
gate.    On arrival he discovers  Dear-1
Ing gasping out his last breath with !
the words, "Your wife stabbed me, and
by God you're going to pay for it!"
A summary police Investigation follows and Richard accuses himself of
Desring's murder In self-defence, ill
order to shield his wife. The chief
of polico grants Richard permission
to visit his home before proceeding to
Jail, and he discovers Beverley In the
act of writing a full confession, but
he tells her that he Insists upon shouldering the burden and will state thnt
Dearing attempted to malign her character and then attack Beverley, so that
he, Richard, had to kill Dearing in
self-defence.
Then came the electrifying news
that Dearlng's death was not caused
by the spipke file at all—but to glvc
further details here would mitigate

JOHNNY O'LEARY GIVEN
DRAW WITH "RED" GAGE
Fshmt Chaatpiei Made Fair Showing
Against Img and Shifty Opponent From Sound City.
Real action featured Tho fight card
at the Dominion hall, Vancouver, on
Tuesday night when one of the biggest
crowds that has attended any of Freddie Welsh's shows gathered at the flu-
tic auditorium tnd there howled their
delight over the thrilling situations
that were crammed Into the 20 rounds
of milling.
Johnny O'Leary, former Canadian
lightweight champion, essayed a come
hack against Red Gage of Seattle, and
while the shifty Gage prored an elusive target, O'Leary showed that he
stilt packs t lot of stuff, and won a big
hand on hla performance. His work
in the clinches was better than any
thing that has been seen here for
months. The bout was a draw,
Johnny carried the light to Gage in
•very round, while the ruddy youngster Irom across the line was content
to meet the rushes with everything he
had. Gage depended on his left to
solve the O'Leary attack, and on several occasions hung a shock or two
on O'Leary's Jaw. Many of his swings,
however, were wrapped around
O'Leary's neck and weren't so bad as
they looked.
Knox Thumps Woods.
While the main event was laden
with a goodly portion of thumplngs
and spectacular flashes of fisticuffs,
the racket between "Noodles" Knox
and Soldier Woods of Seattle, wherein
Woods took the worst lacing that has
been Jammed ln a four-round swatfest
ln Vancouver, was the best of a good
card. Woods left the ring with his
face swollen tnd bleeding from the
staggering blows that Knox seemingly
landed tt will tfter that first right
cross ln the opening round; Knox won
decisively.

JACK DEMPSEY'S MARRIAGE IN   -
UTAH SAID TO BE INVALID
SAN FRANCISCO, April 30.—Evidence indicating that the marriage of
Maxlne Wayne Dempsey to Jack
Dempsey, heavyweight champion of
the world, at Farmlngton.' Utah, In
October, 1916. was In violation of the
Utah divorce laws end therefore Invalid, was made public by government
officials here. The former Mrs.
Dempsey was a prominent wltnesR in
the federal grand jury Investigation
which resulted In the Indictment of
Dempsey and Jack Kearns. Ills manager, on a selective draft evasion
charge.
The officials announced that they
certified documents to show that Mrs.
Dempsey married Dempsey thirteen
days after she secured an interlocutory divorce from George Glasshoff,
17, 1916, whereas the Utah law directs
that no wedding can take place until
at least six months after such decree
Is granted.
The result of the Investigation, it
is said, will give Mrs. Dempsey the
right to testify against Dempsey and
Kearns. rfemfsey has been finally
divorced but at the time the letters
on which the indictments are based
were written *4*Irs. Dempsey still was
his wife. On that account, had the
marriage been unquestioned, Mrs.
Dempsey could not -have testified
against her former husband, according to the authorities.

Chevrolet
Enjoyment ceases to be complete when you feel it
is extravagant.
The certainty that a car conserves your money—that,
its every feature renders you the utmost service, is the
most gratifying feeling about it.
That is why more people buy Chevrolets in preference to heavier types that are a burden on the pocket-
book-
The experience of veteran moorists has proven that
the Chevrolet affords you all the feelings essential to
complete enjoyment.
Pride in its appearance and absolute confidence in its
dependability alone guarantee your peace of mind.
Yet in addition the Chevrolet offers every riding and
driving comfort and equipment convenience.
These things are to be enjoyed equally in a Chevrolet
as in other cars. But in the Chevrolet alone can you
enjoy them at such low cost.
That is the peculiar attraction of the Chevrolet—all
essential features other cars afford, but at lower cost.
Do not entertain any doubts on this score. Give us
an opportunity to show you how and why this is true.

Why Postmasters
Complain
The postmasters of Canada hare lor
many years been wretchedly paid tor
the services they render the public owing to the vast increase in the work
they have been called upon to perform.
At Confederation a basis ol payment
by commission upon the revenue ol
their respective offices was Instituted.
You will understand that the revenue
of a post ofllce is amount of stamps
sold at that ofllce. There are one or
two other sources of revenue but they
are so small and insignificant that
they a're not worth consideration. The
Confederation scale was about aa follows:
4U por cent, ou the lirst $800 of revenue; 25 per cent, on the next (9,200
and IH per cent, on all revenue over
$10,000. There was a minimum paid
to small or offices Just being opened
of |10 or $12 per annum. There was
also a scale of rent, fuel and light
allowance tor office, having $100 of
revenue, amounting to $5 per annum
for each full $100 of revenue, up to
$800,,then from $800 to $2,000 $20 was
added for each full $100 ot extra
revenue; over $2,000 every full $500 of
revenue added $20.
There are some additional commissions allowed for the sale of Money
Ordors and Savings Bank deposits; as
these commissions, however, never
fully met the cost of clerical help from
the time of Confederation to the pres
ont date they may be dismissed and
not taken into further account. At
that time the rate of postage was three
cents for domestic letters and live
cents for British and foreign letters lor
each half-ounce of weight, also there
were few newspapers being published,
advertising booklets and cotolaguos
were unknown, and the incoming and
outgoing mall would probably be about
equal. As the years elapsed, however,
newspopers multiplied, 1,548 now being published, advertising become general and the disparity between incoming and outgoing mail became very
pronounced. The standard ot living
and Its cost also advanced so that at
the end of 39 years the postmasters'
condition became serious owing to the
introduction ol Imperial penny post
and a general domestic two-cent rate.
An appeal was made to Sir Wm.
Mulock, who was then ppostmaster-
general, and resulted tn a ten per
cent. Increase being given on the
salaries computed according to the
old scale. Six or eight years later,
while the Hon. Rodolphe Lemleux was
postmaster-general, a new schedule
was adopted giving postmasters 50 per
cent, on the first $1,000 ot revenue, 30
per cent, on the next $3,000, and 20
per cent, on all revenue In excess of
$10,000, and a 25 per cent. Increase to
$10,000, and a 25 per cent. Increase to
the rent allowance.
This scale of commissions remained
In force until the flrst'of April, 1916,
when, owing to the Introduction ot the
war tax, postmasters were reduced to
the old Contederatlon scale, and no relief obtained until July, 1918, when the
Hon. C. J. Doherty, Acting Postmaster-
General, gave tbe small offices 50 per
cent of the first thousand ol revenue,
increased the minimum salary to $60,
and restored the 25 per cent. Increase
to the rent allowance. However, tor
the first time In the history of the
Post Office Department the larger
offices were expressly retused participation in this small increase, which
amounted to a maximum ot $130 per
annum to ofAces which have $1,000 of
revenue or over. At offices, therefore,
having a revenue of $10,866 and upwards and upwards are being paid
today upon the Contederatlon scale,
notwithstanding the cost of living being double what It was five or six
years ago.
Notwithstanding the fact that the
war is over, the cost of living and
labor continues to advance, hundreds
of postmasters are ln a dilemma because they have been notified by their
assistants that they must increase
their salaries or lose their help. We
think that the services given by th.
Canadian postmasters wlll compare
favorably with that ot any other country. We believe the public demands
Increased efficiency and tbis cannot be
given if we have to lose experienced
and competent help and substitute new
and inexperienced assistants. The postmasters' association is asking that
parliament appoint a Royal Commission to Investigate the actual conditions within the several post offices
and report back some- satisfactory
method of salary payments.

ROTORUA, New Zealand, April HO.—The picturesque celebration arranged by the Maori tribesmen, enemies of the British in
Ihe Maori War, in honor of the Prince of Wales on the shores ol'
Rotorua Lake today furnished one of the striking features ot the
Prince's tour. A thousand native warriors, clad only in loincloths
and armed with spears, performed fierce war dances, while a
thousand graceful Maori maidens in brilliant Maori dress, did their
languorous dances to the accompaniment of the soft native music.
The address of welcome to the Prince in the quaint Maori
language began: "Ye who sleep the long last sleep arise and stand
forth to give welcome, for lo, the firstborn son of the royal line
draws near.  The son of our lord is welcome"
