The First Annual Picnic of theem-
ployees of the Canadian Collleriei
Dunsmuir Limited, Comox Mines, wa;
held at Royston Beach on Saturdaj
July 20th. The management of the
Wellington Colliery Railway Company train crews and transportation
committee made every arrangement
for the comfort and safety of the employees, their wives and children in
travelling from Cumberland to Royston and return, and a day of pleasure and mutual intercourse passeti
ml without an accident of any kind
which reflects great credit upon the
ones who had charge of transportation operations of the day. The festivities were under the able dlrec
tlon of Air. A. . Hamilton, director oi
committees, who was a wise selectior.
on the part of the management oi
the Canadian Collieries, as he musl
have given the day considerable thought and time in working out all details for the comfort of the employees
and dependents.
The special free train of twenty-
live cars, generously donated by tht
Canadian Collieries, pulled out o.
Cumberland by two locomotives al
8 a. m.i to the sweet strains of tht
West Cumberland Conservative Bant.
which played suitable selections
while the two thousand excursionist,
journeyed from Cumberland to Rr.y
ston. The weather was favorable,
With the exception of a few showers
and upon the arrival at the water
front all were taken by surprise bj
the elaborate preparations for tin
day. Tlie first to greet their eye was
the immense Welcome arch, as it
were, extending the hand of wel
come at the arch. All employees and
their dependents under sixteen years
of age were given a Grand Rafllt
ticket. When upon the ground tht
excursionists found that the generosity of the Canadian Collieries Dunsmuir, Ltd. had gone further than
their expectations, and that ever}
preparation had been made for tbeii
comfort, pleasure and convenience-
such as the laying of a thousand feet
of waterpipe from a spring on the
hills, creating a miniature waterworks, with drinking fountains all
over the grounds. Swings on an extensive scale for the children, racing
courses, tug-of-war platform, which
was built in such a manner the two
thousand excursionists were able tc
view the competitions with pleasure.
A 40x00 dancing pavilion had been
erected, but unfortunately this was
not used to any great extent on account of the Intervening showers. A
refreshment stand 40x40, with an array of waiters and assistants wht
catered to the wants of the mothers
and children. There was an abundance of ice cream, soft drinks, bananas, oranges, chocolates and peanuts
supplied free by the Canadian Collieries. The children never had such o
feast; it was only ask and receive
and It will be a day they will nevei
forget, but look forward to it with
pleasure. Then there was the bant
stand for the band who supplied tht
music for the day. Lavatories, bath-
'ng booths for women and men, and
(ei "hones, with an occasional sigr.
"Make ^urself at '""ne," "Try nnti
make the" ot.> ,eUow Mwy" "Takt
off yen- coat anu" Btay awllile'"   et0
In fact, it was beA"1d *" f^""
lions of the employees, .^t^J l"
very grateful for the genei
stowed  upon    them, and • app
the services rendered by the mana.
ment and the various committees.
The morning was devoted to tin
children's sports, racing, skipping
jumping, etc., with numerous competitors.
At noon, and the time for lunch,
Mr. Nat llevls, the President of the
CommtttBOS, gave nil address, thanking the excursionists for the manner
In which they had taken hold of the
great opportunity extended to them
by the Canadian Colliorlea IDuiis)
niuir). Ltd., In setting aside the day
for amusement, rest and recreation of
the employees, their wives ami children. It Is an event without, a pre
cedent In the history of the district,
and gives the impression that the

Collieries (Dunsmuir), Ltd. are care
fully considering the welfare! of tfceli
employees, as all expenses are being
defrayed by the Canadian Collieries,
with the exception of the cash prize
list of $500.00, which waa''donated b>

sonic time before Mr. Gra'.iam could
be heard, he was given sucjh an extra-

irdlnary reception. He expressed Ills
ileasure at seeing so many of the

near and dear to theui present on
ihls the First Annual Picnic, and
ihat they may enjoy themselves in
,uch a way as to look forward to the

Third street. Impressive service;
were held at Holy Trinity Church b;
the Rev. Archdeacon Collenson. afte

ceased lady was an esteemed mem
The late Elizabeth Horbury wai
bom at Wakefield, Yorkshire, England, 69 years ago, and came to tht
United tates in the year 1882, accompanied by the husband, who survive:
her, remaining there 16 years. The}
then came to Cumberland and havt
resided in this city for the past 2(
years. The deceased was was tht
mother of a gifted family, and all tht
care and love that skilled physician'
and an anxious household could devise and apply for the comfort autl
assistance were brought into play
but the flat of Him who rules our Incomings and outgoings had been is
sued and after a brief struggle, de
spite the prayers and entreaties of al!
who knew and loved her, their ap
peals were overruled and ou Fridn.i
evening, a week ago, the sufferer')
spirit took to flight to that home tht
Christian believes Is the fulfillment
of the life everlasting.
As the death dew gathered on hei
marble brow, around her bedside
gathered her "boys" and "girls." Always boys and girls to her, though
now grown to mature years with boys
and girls around their own firesides
The life so long interwoven with
theirs, with tearful eyes they watch
ed as It slowly but surely passed
over. The love ot a mother tor her
children passeth human understanding.
Business cares and their own home
circles have encroached upon their
time, may have robbed mother of
their companionship, but she was
ever just the same rejoicing In their
success and grieving at their misfortune. They may have grown away
from her, but she never from them.
They were still her boys and girls
Among us all she ranked always
as a woman of culture, refinement,
sympathy, a kind neighbor, devoted
mother and a true friend and withal
a woman of heroic mould In bravely
meeting the stern requirements and
often the disappointments of life.
The deceased leaves to mourn her
loss her husband, two sons, Joseph
Horbury and John Horbury, three
daughters, Mrs. John Freaner ol
Vancouver, Harriot Horbury, Mrs.
Frank Jayncs of Nanaimo, Mrs. W

SATURDAY, JULY 27th. 1918
The loafers and merely nominal
workers of the North American continent have fallen upon evil days.
Both in Canada and the United States,
the law has now set Its face severely
against them. On July 1st the United
Slates Federal Order, as tlrhwn up by
Provost Marshall Enoch Crowder,
went In effect . All men of draft age.
that is. between the ages of eighteen
and fifty, have now to be engaged in
some productive employment or get
into the army. This Federal Order is
being re-enforced by auti-loafing laws,
enacted hy the State Legislature.
The provost marshall has defined
productive occupations and there is no
escape for those who cannot be classed
among the productive workers if they
are of draft age. Non-productive occupations in the United States arc defined as follows.
First, persons engaged in the serving of food and drink or either in public places, including hotels and social
Second, passenger elevator operators, attendants, doormen and footmen, carriage openers and other attendants in clubs, hotels, stores, opera
houses, office buildings and bathhouses.
Third, persons, including ushers and
other attendants, engaged and occupied in connection with games, sports
and amusements, except actual performers iu legitimate concerts, operas
and theatrical performers.
Fourth, persons employed In domestic service.
Fifth, sales clerks and other clerks
employed in stores and other mercantile establishments.
If a man of draft age registered in
due course and waiting his selection
lor the draft be not employed In productive occupation, or If he be idle
partially or completely, he must hold
himself on immediate call tor the
army. The regulation Is applicable
to idle registrants, to gamblers of all
descriptions and employees of race
tracks and bucket shops, to fortune-,
tollers, clairvoyants, palmists and people of such vocations. If the Board
of Appeal so judge, idlers may have
their deferred classification withdrawn and their names will be reported to tlie Adjutant General of the
State for military service. The only
excuscs for idleness and non-productive employment on the part of a man
of military age are set down as sickness, reasonable vacation, lack of reasonable opportunity for employment,
temporary absences for regular employment, not to exceed one week, unless such are habitual and frei|ucnt
or domestic circumstances involving
hardship to dependents if a change ol
employment were ordered, or where
such chance would necessitate night
work on the part of women under
unsuitable conditions,
In the state of New York, the sheriffs, state police, district attorneys,
magistrates, other officers of the law.
and tho state Industrial commission,
under the state anti-loafing legislation,
ore combined to enforce the federal
order and assign men where neeessar>
to jobs of a productive character. Ii
Is estimated that 1,000,000 will change
their employment as the result of this
order of General Enoch Crowder. II
is pointed out, however, that no mar
should give up his present employment,
even though of the non-productive
class, until he has either procured
work at an essential industry or such
work has been procured for him, as
it is recognized that a man employed
nt non-essential work Is'better than i>
man not employed at all.
Canada's anti-loafing law has been
In operation since early In April and
every male person over sixteen anil
under sixty yenrs of age. unless a
bonn-lide student, or physically unfit
or reasonably unable to find employ
ment, must be engaged In some uscfu
Everyone who Is willing to go on
the farms for the harvest has been
registered. It remains now to organize tho volunteers. Those who are not
canvassed hy local committees should
come forward and got In touch with
local organizations. At points where
organizations are lacking, volunteers
s.iould start farm employment agencies
on their own Initiative so as to bring
farmers and war-workers together.
Food Prices In France
Here are some present war-time
prices in France, as compared with
prices as they were before the war:
Butter, per lb 90
Pork, per lb 70
Potatoes, per .lb 06
Roast Beef, per lb 65
Beans, per lb 28
Coffee, per lb 60
Chocolate, per lb 65
The Canada Food Board campaign
to increase fish consumption is hiving
results. In the Canadian army sU
tinned or in training in Canada 200,000
pounds of beef were saved In the
month of May, and approximately the
same amount in the month of June,
by the substitution of fish. In the
west a trainload of flat fish every few
days from Prince Rupert is sold at
popular prices under the auspices oi
the Canada Food Board. In Toronto
recently 100,000 pounds of mackerel
were sold within one week as the result of a special campaign.
Twenty sheep are required to provide sufficient wool to keep one soldier clothed. In Canada there are less
than 5% sheep per soldier. Wool is
at a record price, as Is also mutter..
The Canada Food Board urges greeter
protiuctlon of sheep and municipal cooperation in controlling the menace
from dogs.
Any person violating any provision
or any order or regulation of the Canada Food Board now or hereafter
made In pursuance of tbe power Invested upon It, is guilty of an offence, and shall he liable upon summary conviction before a police magistrate or a justice of the peace, to a
penalty not exceeding $1,000, and not
less than $100; or to imprisonment not
exceeding three months, or to both
fine and imprisonment."—By Order-in-
Council P. C. (1542), of June 22d, 1918.
The enforcement ot the orders and
regulations of the Canada Food Board

co-operation ot the municipal police

The Story
A tale of two rival villages In Canada, separated by a river, "The World
for Sale" deals mainly with the life
and problems ot a man by the imino
ot Max Ingolby, who seeks to suite
the two townships into one strong
city and to put an end to the old feud
which exists between them.
At the opening of tho play we meet
Floda, the heroine of the story and
daughter of Gabriel Druse, the gypsy
king. Gabriel Druse, althou|;!t a
gypsy, Is a man of very high Intellect
who mingles freely with the men of
both villages.
Fleda is extremely beautiful and Is
loved by three men. The flt.it of
these Is no less a personage than Ingolby himself, whose regard she returns. Another Is Marchand, the leader of the rough element In the French
town, a rascal In every sense of the
Tho third suitor is Jethro awe, a
gypsy to whom Fleda was married In
their childhood according to an old
pened to Ingolby In revenge. Fleda.s
finds him there and puts the dread
Gypsy curse of death upon him.
Now that Ingolby Is 111, the fight between the two towns grows to a serl-
ious extent, Gabriel Druse Is made
head constable and, with the aid of
the Catholic priest, succeeds In establishing a temporary peace.
For some time Ingolby lies HI and
blind, and attended by Fleda, for whom
he comes to have even a deeper love.
It is often only his love for her which
keeps him from committing suicide at
the thought of his helplessness. One
afternoon he senses trouble and gropingly makes his way to the bridge
which he had built and which Is the
only thing that joins the two towns.
He arrives Just In time to prevent its
being dynamiited by two Manitou
men, and Druse finds him there, collapsed, after It Is all over.
In the meantime Fleda has been kid
napped by the outlawed Jethetro and
the gypsies, and is taken to the gyp
sles' celebration, which she Is made
to believe Is the celebration of her
marriage to Jethro. She is strangely
Impressed by the gypsy music and
dancing and finds herself In a moment of weakness almost tempted to
yield to Jethro, but Is saved by the
memory of Ingolby, and at the crucial
moment le rescued by her father.
Ingolby suddenly regains his sight
and appears among the surprised hostile population In time to suppress another riot. While he Is addressing
them and attempting to conciliate
them, news comes that the Catholic
church on the other side of the river
is on Are. The church is saved by
Ingolby's modern Are brigade, but the
tavern nearby, the meeting place of
the conspirators, also catches Are, and
is not saved. Tekewani, the Indian
Chief, effects a thrilling rescue ot
Marchand, who was sleeping upstairs
In  a drunken stupor.    Knowing his

The summer time is motoring time. Warm

to get away from the cares and worries of business. " I want to get away where I can't be
reached,,' he says, but in his innermost heart he
knows that wherever he goes the telephone is not
far away. In fact, he instinctively relies on the
telephone. The knowledge that it is always conveniently handy lulls his soul so that he completely

gypsy rite.   Both Marchand and Jethro are Jealous of Ingolby because of vlllanies, the old Indian Is tempted to
his success and because they see that
he also has fallen in love with Fleda.
Jethro, the more fiery of the two,
attempts to assassinate Ingolby, but
Is not successful and Is driven out of
town by Ingolby. In the meantime,
Marchand has inaugurated strikes and
unrest among the French population at
Manitou, and when Ingolby goes to
quieten the men, a drunken sailor
hurls a missile at him and he is made
Jethro, now an   outcast,   goes    to

her right to rule over the Gypsies,
saying that she has forsaken her race
and religion to marry Ingolby.

Ethel Barrymore In
(By J. S. Plaskctt. Director Dominion
Astrophysical Observatory, Victoria.)
The cause of astronomy In Canada
has been markedly advanced by the
completion ot the 72-inch reflecting
telescope at the Dominion Astropphy-
slcal Observatory at Victoria, B.C.
By the construction of this splendid
Instrument, the second largest In tbe
world, the Government has shown
great progresslveness and enterphise
In advancing science. This institution,
with the well-known work of the Dominion Astronomical Observatory at
Ottawa, will place Canada In the forefront among the nations In astronomical research, as no otlier national observatory has a telescope ot half the
aperture of the mammoth Instrument
at Victoria.
The project was first brought to the
attention of the Government In 1911
and then again in 1912 by memorials
from scientific societies, but It was
not until the spring of 1913 that the
Hon, Dr. W. J. Roche, Minister of the
Interior, who has sympathetically
supported the enterprise from the
first, authorised enpulrles and the
calling for tenders for 60-lnch and
72-inch reflecting telescopes. Contracts for the construction of a 72-
inch reflecting telescope were let to
the John A. Brashear Co., of Pittsburg, for the optical parts, and to
the Warner and Swasey Co., of Cleveland, for the mechanical parts in the
fall of 1913. These Arms are probably tbe most favorably known in the
world In their particular lines, and
have produced a superb instrument,
which is now engaged i n regular
astronomical work and fully meeting
all expectations.
This great telescope differs entirely
from the layman's idea of such an
instrument, which he conceives as a
nnicely mounted brass telescoping
tube, with a lens at the outer end
and an eyepiece at the inner. Such
telescopes and the larger ones of the
same tpe mounted at most observatories are refracting telescopes, In
which the light coming from the star
or other object looked at is refracted
through the object glass at the outer
end, a real image similar to that
formed on the ground glass ot a
camera, and this Image Is magnified
by the eyepiece, or ocular as It Is
technically called. In the reflecting
telescope the outer or upper end of
the tube Is open, and a concave mirror Is placed at the lower end, which
reflects the light back to tbe upper
end, forming an image of the star
there, where it can be magnified by
the eyepiece as In the refractor.
For many years most observatories
were supplied with refracting tele
scopes, which are slightly more convenient to operate, and are more
suitable tor the visual observations,
which In the nineteenth century
formed the major part of astronomical work.
The application of photography to
astronomy, tor which visual tele
scopes are not suited and in which
the reflector offers marked advantages, led to the greater use of reflectors, and this change was hastened by the practical Impossibility of
obtaining the large pieces of glass
required tor large lenses. The 40-
inch Yerkes refractor, completed
about 1895, the largest refractor In
the world, was the last very large
refracting telescope to be built. The
change to the reflecting type was accelerated by the fact that a reflector
with Its dome can be built for about
a quarter the cost of a refractor of
the same aperture.
Hence, when the Dominion Government decided to obtain a large telescope, only the reflecting typo was
considered, and the aperture of 72
inches was considered about the use
ful practical limit. There wore re-
llectors of 36 Inches at several ob
servntories, and a very successful one
of 60 inches at Mt. Wilson, California. There was also at the latter
place a reflector of 100 Inches aperture under construction, but the material of the mirror was defective,
and no better could be obtained. This
instrument has since been completed,
but the Dominion telescope was regularly employed in actual observing
before the 100-inch.
In the 72-Inch reflector, the principal optical part Is the large mirror,
which is 73 Inches In diameter, 12
Inches thick at the edge, 11 1-10 at
the centre, with a central hole 10
Inches In diameter. It is constructed
of a kind of plate glass, and, as the
upper surface only is finished accurately and has a bright coat of silver
deposited chemically on It, so that
the light does not enter or go
through the glass, as in a refractor,
it Is evident, so long as this surface
is perfect, that a few bubbles or
other defects In the Interior, which
would be fatal in a lens, do not matter. This particular mirror, however,
has very few such defects, and Is a
beautiful example ot the glass makers' art. It was cast at Charleroi In
Belgium  In the spring of 1914 and

shipped from Antwerp only throe
or four days before war was declared.
It was ground and polished by the
John A. Brashear Co., of Pittsburgh,
Pa., the most noted opticians in
America, If not In the world. The extreme accuracy required in the reflecting surface can be realized when
it Is said that it must nowhere deviate over the whole 72-lnch concave
surface more than one two-hundred-
thousandth of an inch from the true
theoretical form. It Is this accuracy,
which Is twenty times beyond mechanical methods of measurement,
and is tested by an optical method,
which explains tbe high cost and the
long time required to obtain high
grade lenses and mirrors.
This mirror, which weighs 4,340
lbs., is mounted in the lower section
of the tube of the telescope, seen to
the left of the photograph. This sec-
ion, which is a steel casting 7 ft. 6
in. In diameter and 1 ft. 6 In. deep,
is arranged to support the mirror
flexibly without strain and yet invariably in position, and weighs nearly tour tons, so that mirror and cell
weigh six tons. The flange of this
cell Is bolted to a corresponding
flange on the central section of the
tube, also a steel casting ot the same
diameter and 6 ft. high, weighing
seven tons. The upper section of the
tube, of skeleton form, Is built up ot
structural steel, Is of exceedingly
rigid and light construction, Is 23 tt.
long and weighs two tons.
The light from the star or other
object at which the telescope is
pointed enters the tube and falls on
the slivered concave surface ot the
big'mirror. It la reflected upwards
in a converging beam and forms an
image oi tbe object at the centre of
the circular member, held centrally
at the upper end of the tube by the
thin perforated webs shown In the
photograph, which, being placed
edgewise, obstruct very little light.
This image can be observed here by
an auxiliary telescope reflecting It to
the side of the tube, or, as Is IU chief
purpose, can be photographed on a
plate placed  In a  suitable holder at
this point. Such observations are
made at what Is called the principal
An alternative method ot using the
telescope is to attach to tho circular
member a flat mirror about 20 Inches
In diameter, mounted dllagonally
about four feet down the tube. This
reflects the beam to tho side of the
tube, where It can be conveniently
observed with an eyepiece and direct
ly photographed as before. The instrument arranged thus is called n
Newtonian telescope.
A third method, and the form In
which the telescope will mostly be
used, Is the C'asscgraln, In which a
convex mirror, 20 inches in diameter,
attached to tho same circular mem
ber, and held about seven feet down
lu the tube, reflects the light from the
main mirror back again through its
central hole, and forms the Image oi
the object pointed at, about a foot below the mirror cell. Here It can be
viewed by an eyepiece or photographed, but will In general be analyzed by the spectroscope, which Is
seen attached below the mirror cell
at the bottom of the tube. The spectrum of the star is formed and photographed by the spectroscope, and
from this spectrum can be determined, not only the elements present In
the atmosphere of the star and its
temperature and pressure, but also
the velocity with which it Is moving
towards or from us, and as a development of the last year or so, Its distance. The spectroscope is probably
the most wonderful Instrument of research ever devised, as, by the character of the light from any body, no
matter bow distant, such marvelous
knowledge can be obtained, and the
telescope will mostly be used with
this attachment.
The tube of the telescope weighs 15
tons, and this great weight is necessary in order that it may be sufficiently rigid to maintain tbe optical
parts in their correct relative posi
tlons. At the same time, they and
the tube In which they are held must
be so mounted as to enable them to
be readily pointed to any desired oh
ject in the sky and then to accurately
follow Its motion across the sky.
This is effected by attaching the
tube to a cross shaft, passing horizontally to the right, called the
declination axis, which is 14 feet
long, 16 inches in diameter, and
weighs over live tons. This axis
ends In the weights, which balance
the telescope on the polar axis, the
large, Inclined built-up shaft, running diagonally across and resting in
liearingK on the two piers. Motors
and gearing for moving the declination axis and tube are contained in

on the north and south piers, tlie lotal

letting the telescope to any deBlred
object. In addition to any such com
paratively rapid movement It is driv-
in by a very accurate governor mechanism, called tho driving clock, at the
;*ate of one revolution every twenty-
i'our hours on the polar axis. The
revolution, at the same rate and in an
ipposite direction and ou a parallel
ixls to the earth, counteracts the elects of the earth"s revolution, and
inables tho telescope to accurately
.ollow follow the apparent motion of
he stars across the sky.
All this mechanism has to move tlie
mormous mass of the telescope with
he  greatest  Htnoolhness  and  accur-
icy, and requires   the grentcit pcr-
ectlon of workmanship.   It Is a mas-
erpieco ot the mechanician's art and

has a double covering, with provision

air, both essential conditions for the
satisfactory working of such a large
Instrument. The dome as well as the
telescope, though not the largest, Is
the most complete and convenient In
all mechanical edtalls of any previously built. It Is of hemispherical
shape, provided with a double shutter to be opened during observing, 16
