THE CUMBERLAND ISLANDER
Willi which Is consolidated the   Cumberland Newt.
FORTY-FIRST YEAR—No. 13       <B
CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA, SATURDAY,  APRIL 1st 1922.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM.
Observations Of
A Federal Member
March 4th. Was notified that
Japanese trolling licenses would
be reduced 33 p.c. this present
season.
March 5th, Ottawa climate all
light, cold at night but air clear
and fine. Party who had lived
here 30 years, said he had seen
dust blowing on the streets on
March 17th and on other years
on the same date, the snow piles
on streets so high that one could
not see people on other side of
street.
March 6th. Attended meeting
of egg raisers, egg dealers and
egg consumers from all over Can
ada. Object, to agree on conditions under which foreign eggs
should enter Canada.
Egg producers strictly reson-
able, asked for no increase of
duty and favoritism. Only asked
for foreign eggs entering Canada
to be graded according to Standards imposed by law on eggs produced in Canada. Didn't seem
much to ask? Dealers are stubborn. Result, compromise, resolutions agreeable to no one. Did
however, pass some resolutions
re egg containers being marked
with wintry of origin so that
public will no longer get Chinese
eggs presented to them as "Best
Local Fresh."
March 7th. Received formal
notice sternly warning me that
the Commissioners appointed by
"Dedimus Potestatem", wanted
me to be sworn in. Sounded like
a proposition that it would not be
wise to fool with; huiried round,
sworn in, no signs of "Eedimus"
but best to take no chances.
Mailed 28 letters.
March 8th. Parliament called
for business this date. Common
people might think this means
beginning business? Not at all.
House met at 3 p. in. Elected a
Speaker. Not necessarily a long
job, seeing it was all arranged
beforehand but between ceremony and etiquette, put in an hour
and half, then adjourned until
next day. Wonder what people
of Cumberland would say if large
public meeting called in their
town after naming a chairman,
were told to go home and come
back again the next day. Public
business done, elected Speaker.
i March 9th. Parliament formally opened by Governor-General.
Main feature, really, is social
function of Canadian officials and
Society ladies. Competition is
keen for production of the most
exclusive production of dressmakers art. Result: Pretty scene,
many beautiful ladies and dresses; that is, many of the ladies
were beautiful and many of the
dresses were the same, but the
two did not always go together.
Parliament exhausted by its exertions in being "opened" immediately adjourned from today,
(Thursday) until next Monday,
at 3 p. m. The Senate having
a little more blood pressure than
the Common*, abjourned until
Tuesday.
Business finished, parliament
opened and King's Speech read
vaguely indicating legislative
program. A seeking of better
markets, a hint of reduced freight
rates, some changes in tariff,
co-ordination of the government
owned railways, immigration,
consideration of soldiers claims,
strict economy in estimates,
"rendering necessary the non-
inclusion of many undertakings"
were principal features.
March 11th. Attended the State
Drawing room held by their Excellencies Lord and Lady Byng.
Bought dress suit for the occasion, have not had one on for 6
years; hope it will be 6 years before next time.
700 people walked past throne
and bowed.   Many officers and
CLUB NOTES
The smoker scheduled for Saturday evening April 1st will be
different from any of the smokers held so far, there will be lots
of room,there will be a regular
programme of the entertainments
which will consist of athletic and
musical talent the best that the
committee can get together.
The junior members of the club
will not be admitted under any
circumstances.
The books circulated so far this
month, up to and including the
27th are 844. From this data may
be judged the number of people
already deriving a huge benefit
from this library.
There are books for twice
the number of readers that we
have at present'
The gymnasium classes are becoming more popularevery week.
As soon as the weather permits
there will be training in all out.
door sports such as high and broad
jumps, pole vaulting, discus and
javalin throwing, and many other standard tract events.
The literary committee of the
club are endeavorintr to arrange
to have Dr. Plaskett of the Victoria Astronomical Observatory
give a lecture on astronomy.       I
This should be very interesting
due to the fact that Dr. Plasket
is able to give all his discripton
from first hand.
Definite information will be
published later.
Stirring Story
Of North Woods
The great northwest woods are
really the central influence in the
latest Goldwyn picture, "The Man
from Lost River" which comes to
the Ilo-llo theatre on Friday and
Saturday. The action of Katharine N. Burt's photoplay takes
place in a lumber camp where the
men lead crude lives close to nature. Thesoftening influence of
women is absent, though in the
camp dwells an orphan girl, the
pride of the men. Into this group
came a sophisticated Easterner
who falls in love with the girl and
marries her. The dramatic conflict
entwines the camp foreman, who
has silently adored the girl all the
while; and it is the unworthiness
of her husband in a time of crisis
that both removes him from the
scene and showsthegirl the worth
of a noble man's love.
The usual two-reel comedy, also
a Snub Pollard comedy will be
screened with this feature.
The biggest outdoor picture of
the year, Nell Shipman in "The
Girl from God's Country" will be
shown on Monday and Tuesday,
Cumberland, Bevan and

March 13th. House at last

SATURDAY, A PRIL.lst 1922
NOBODY   HOME
We have been thinking about
the "fads" of the present and
even though we may be considered old fogy, our thoughts have
created within us a longing for
the return of the good old days
of our forefathers; days when
calloused hands warmly clasped
each other and kid gloves were
urknown; days when at eventide
the famil;- gathered at the o'd
place and enjoyed the pleasures
of home. How different now. Take
the average family to-day and
mother is usually the only one
at home after the evening meal.
The father has gone to the lodge,
Jane to the movies, Kate to a card
party, Robert has gone down
town for a game of pool and
Willie is rooting for his team at
a basketball game. If we drop
around to a civic worker's home,
where the moral uplift of the
community is keen, a knock at
the door brings no response. Father has gone to a committee meeting to arrange the details for the
entertainment of Professor Ein-
rich Eckstein, who is lo address
the Chamber of Commerce at its
noon luncheon on Thursday;Moth-
er is attending some guild or
missionary tea; Thomas is away
ac a social given by the Epworth
League; Harry is attending a rehearsal of the "Tots in Toyland,"
the peformance soon to be given
for the benefit of the Parent-
Teachers' Association; Nellie is
listening to the plans of the Red
Cross Peace Program at the Chapter Hall. These are most worthy
places for the members of the
family to be, but even the most
wor'hy of societies that take the
family from home two-thirds of
the evenings of each week do not
build up that solid christain character that is formed around the
old fireplace at home. Unless in
these matters we return to the
good old days of our fathers and
parents and children are educated
to enjoy home and made to realize
that there is noplace like "Home
Sweet Home," we can expect
many to fall by the wayside and
our sons and daughters handicapped at the very threshold of
life.

OBSERVATIONS OF
A FEDERAL MEMBER
(Continued from Page One)
hour, spoke plainly, forcibly and
practically stopped when he had
finished.
W.F. McLean, the well known
member for West York .spoke
with rugged vigor, strongly in
favor of Government ownership
of railways. Evidently an old-
timer in the house and popular.
Rest of session till 11:15 was occupied by various members of
the Farmer paity. speaking as
farmers and mainly concerned
with farmer problems.
J. S. Woodworth, Labor member for Winnipeg Centre, spoke
as representing Labor, a college
man and incisive speaker, Was
received favorably.
One member suggested that
we should buy the C.P.R. House
looked aghast! Another member
suggested that our salaries should
be cut.  House looked still more
to a profitable New York market,
Spoke strongly against Asiatic
encroachment in B. C.
A. W. Neill M.P. for Comox.
Alberni spoke. Said we want
protection on our coal and lumber, our fruit and farm products,
and the most of all, protection
against the Asiatic population
with its low standards of living
and labor. He read the platform
on which he was elected and told
the Government if they would
grant the bulk of that platform,
and a duty on fuel oil, he would
give them his hearty support but
it had to be legislation, not prom
ises. Adjourned the debate at
11 p.m.
March 17. Neill resumed the
debate. Spoke on unemployment,
prefrential trade with Australia,
(to benefit our market for paper)
railway rates, inspection of eggs
and elimination of oleomargarine
ond strongly and at length on
necessity, of increasing the duty
on fuel oil.
Spoke against immigration and
urged making same offers of land
settlement to our own residents
as is proposed to be offered to
induce settlers to come in. Advocated extension of payments

Running through the telephone cord are a number of delicate flexible wires. "Kinks" are
formed when this cord is allowed to become
twisted, and some of these wires may be bent or
broken,
This means a "noisy" telephone line. You cannot hear or be
heard as well. In fact, a twisted cord may cause a complete
interuption of your service. Keeping the telephone cord
straight will give you greater satisfaction in the use of your
telephone.

The minister and his bride were
preparing to eat a bite at a luncheonette. They were busily ^engaged with the bill of /fare when
the waitress, who was a much
calcimined and peroxided young
miss, came up to take their order. Suddenly the young minister
looked up from the bill of fare,
smiled sweetly at the waitress,
and said, "How is the chicken today?"
"Pretty good kid, she retorted,
how are you?"

"Good heavens!" exclaimed

"The Man From
Lost River"
Jim Barnes- boss of the lumberjacks sullen faced giant
with steel sprung muscles, ruler by right of list and
boot, King of the lonely camp, was he hero or villian?
There is one thrilling surprise after another in this magnificent drama of the north woods. The hero is a boss of
the lumber camp, six feet three of rugged steel-muscled
manhood, with a jaw like iron and a will that no one
could bend.
A worker enteringSoviet Russia
must have $100. Thats only 100,
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000in
Russian roubles-about enough to
buy a second hand match on a
windy day.
Hundred dollars wont buy anything in Russia except trouble. At
a very liberal estimate, the best
brand of Russian money is wotth
nothing plus freightage which is
heavy. It wont be hard for the
Yankee I. W. W.'s to fall in love
with the Soviet Code of Labor.
There an honest working man is
a man who doesn't work.
Nearly everybody is honest in
Russia.
