Cumberland Cricketers
Defeat Courtenay Team
McMonnies for Courtenay Stars
with the Ball
After waiting three or four weeks
a return cricket game was :played
Wednesday between the Cumberland
eleven and the Courtenay eleven. The
game was played on the "Y" 0 round
at Cumberland nnd resulted ln a win
for the home team by a score of 59
runs aa against 32 for Courtenay.
Gough and Dando opened the game for
the locals and made a good first
wicket stand. Dando being eventually howled by Biss after making 16
runs. The wickets began to fall fairly fast, Gough going out after making
a good 22. McMonies Tor Courtenay
had the splendid average of six wickets for seven runs. The visitors tried
six bowlers before dismissing the
home team.
It looked odds that Courtenay would
win, J. Idiens and Rev. Bourdillon
facing the bowling of Gough and Vernon-Jones. Idiens fell early to the
latter, being out l.b.w. Jones also
bowled Bourdillon shortly after. Good-
all relieved Jones whilst Pinch relieved Gough after the latter had taken three wlckeis for eleven runs and
Jones two wickets for eight runs. The
change proved profitable ns both Finch
and Goodall took wfcltets for small
runs. The latter had two wickets for
two runs whlst Finch had three for
seven runs. Courtenay being dismissed for thc small score of 32,

Since the double train service to
Port Alberni and way points on the
E. & N. Railway from Parksville has
been so successful, there la an increasing demand that a double train
service be started between Parksville
and Courtenay. It has been pointed
out to the E. & N. Railway officials
that there is a much larger population to serve between the latter points
also that most of the very important
Bummer resorts on Vanouver Island
are between Parksville and Courtenay.
One suggestion has been made that
the train leave Nanaimo at 10 a.m.
and wait over at Parksville until the
night train arrives from Nanaimo for
Port Alberni and then continue from
Parksville to Courtenay. Another
suggestion and one the E. & N. Railway Company has under consideration
Is to run a gas car from Parksville
to Courtenay at night. This would
probably arrive In Courtenay about
11 p.m.
Residents along the various points
say that this new service would be
equally as well patronized in winter
as In summer because there are seldom any tleups on the E. & N. Railway during the worst weather.

Bates lost about seven balls. Turning to his opponent he said:
"Golf's a mighty funny game,
I never got It right;
You buy a ball for ninety cents
Then knock lt out of sight.
You hunt around in weeds and thorns
And find It in its den—
And take a club and try to knock
It out of sight again."

Regular Meeting of
Board of Trade
Adopt By-laws
Delegates to Convention at Qualicum To Be Given Free
The regular meeting of the Cumberland Board of Trade was held In
the Council Chambers on Tuesday
evening with R. C. Lang, the President, In the chair. The minutes of
the special meeting and of the executive meeting weer read. Several
communications were read, one from
the City Clerk giving the Board of
Trade permission to use the City Hall
for meetings, with a proviso that the
hall be left In as clean a condition as
at the start of the meeting. A communication was also received from the
products Bureau of B.C. informing
the Board that the week July 19th to
July 25th had been set aside for a
"Mar* In B.C. Week" aritf asUufe for
the co-operation of the Cumberland
Hoarti ln this undertaking by the
merchants of the district using all
their available window space for the
showing of goods made In B.C. The
bureau also informed the board of
trade that the color scheme was to he
orange and leaf green.
Communication from the secretary
of the Associated Boards of Trade of
Vancouver Island conveyed the information that the course of the Qualicum Golf Club would be accessible to
the delegates to the convention free
of charge and that the Duncan Board
of Trade had issued a challenge to
any four to a game of golf.
A copy of the resolution to be submitted to the convention by the Cumberland delegates was read and approved by the meeting. This resolution calls upon the Associated
Boards of Trade of Vancouver Island
to use their best efforts to induce the
Provincial Government to complete
the road to Alberni via Puntledge
Lake. Bills and accounts presented
were ordered to be paid. If found
The by-laws drawn up by the executive committee and modeled along the
lines of the Saanlch Board of Trade'
were read clause by clause and paw-
ed after discussion. Only in one or
two instances were minor changes
made, the by-laws being found to be
sufficient to cover every angle of
Board of Trade work.
The delegates from the Cumberland
Board of Trade were on motion and
fully endorsed by all present, given a
free hand at the convention to be held 1
at Qualicum on July 25th.
Mr. w. Douglas, a member of the]
Courtenay-Comox Board of Trade was)
present iuuI briefly addressed thu j
gathering, submitting a copy of thei
resolution to be put forward at the
convention hy the delegates from j
Courtenay and asking the support of ■
the local delegation. Mr. Douglas al-l
so mentioned the matter of a trail
along the Puntledge River and fully
explaining the Idea of such a trail j
asked that the Cumberland Board sun-:
port the Courtenay-Comox Board ill
their efforts to have this trail completed. I
The meeting was informed that the
Duncan Board of Trade had issued
an invitation tn the Associated Boards I
to hold their annual convention at'
Duncan next year. Tho president of
the Cumber hind Board thought It
might also be a good thing to go after
and instructed the secretary and the
delegates to work with an end In j
view of securing the convention for;
Cumberland for 1929.
That the province of British Columbia had prospered during the time a
Liberal government had been in power
since 1916 and that its finances were in
first class shape was advanced as an
argument by the Hon. T. I J. Pattullo
why the Liberal government should be
returned to power, at a well attended
meeting in the Gaiety Theatre on
Thursday night, in the Interests of the
Liberal candidate, Mayor J. w. Mc
The meeting was presided over by
Mr. W. A. Urquhart, and besides the
speakers of the evening, Messrs. Alex.
Urquhart and Jos. McPhee were on the
The first speaker was Mr. P. P. Harrison, Independent Liberal member for
the constituency during the past four
years, who gave reasons why he was
supporting the Liberal government and
their candidate.
In the first place, were matters of
local Interest. During ttte past few
years the government hadftreated their
public institutions with a 'great deal of
generosity. They had formed a new
police district so that instead of being
under the control of Nanaimo they had
their police headquarters at Courtenay.
There was also the division of the
County of Nanaimo, in connection with
which there was not one dissenting vote
in the house. In the past few years,
too, there had beeti a greater improvement in the local roads than for the
previous twenty years and the road
programme had left little to be desired. The building of the Campbell River
bridge was under way, which was for
the purpose of connecting up with the
district beyond, and then Sayward
would become a second Comox district.
Mr. Harrison then dealt with the
various measures of social legislation
passed and put into operation by the
Liberal government. These were the
reasons, he said, why he was taking a
very keen interest in the fate of the
Liberal government. He was too radical for some of his Liberal friends, but
he must give credit to the present government for having put through social
legislation which, in his opinion, could
not be equalled in any other province
of the Dominion.
Mr. J. W. McKenzie. the Liberal candidate .spoke next. He said he had
been before his hearers on a great
many occasions in connection with city
affairs, but this was Ills first appearance before them on a step higher up,
and he was the first Liberal candidate
in this constituency since 1920. He was
a straight Liberal and his policy was
that of directly supporting the McLean
government. Mr. McKenzle then went
briefly into the past record of the Liberal government and the present financial standing of the nrqvinue, In'
speaking of his opponent, Dr. MacNaughton, he said that he had a great
deal of respect for the doctor as a man
and as a physician, and so far as he
was concerned, he would run a clean,
campaign and refrain from slander.
He referred to what he called a whispering campaign ln which supporters of
Dr. MacNaughton were circulating malicious rumors concerning himself and
his family. Personally, he held himself responsible for any statements
made by his own workers against his
opponent and if he heard of any such
being made during the campaign he
would Immediately recall the offending party, and he felt that as a candidate, Dr. MacNaughton should be
held equally responsible for any such
statements made by his sub-lieutenants. In his own home town he had
been elected mayor four times, twice by
acclamation and the last tlmo by a
large majority, and he thought this
should be a sufficient guarantee as to
his character.
The Hon. T. D. Puttullo, Minister of
Lands, was the principle speaker of the
evening, and gave a rousing political
address. He first paid tribute to Mr.
Harrison when he stated that in the
next house they would miss him as he
had been a valuable member during
the past four years.
An argument put up by the opposition was that it was time for a change,
but, said the speaker, the biggest institutions in Canada were built up by
continuity of management, and if they
had a government in which they had
reasonable confidence the argument
that it wa stime for a change should
bear no weight whatever with an intelligent people.
Mr. Pattullo then compared the manifestos issued by Dr. McLean and Dr.
Tolmle. Dr. McLean's manifesto, he
said, was a citation of real accomplishment, whereas the manifesto of Dr.
Tolmle was nothing but generalization
and really an approval of the McLean
In 1903, he said, McBryde formed a
straight Conservative government, and
for thirteen years they had a Conservative government in Victoria. At that
time, 1903, the affairs of the province,
were ln such a condition that Sir Richard McBryde called a meeting of the
Victoria bankers.to help him devise
some scheme whereby their cheques
would be paid by their own banker, the
Bank of Commerce. The result was a
loan of a million dollars, and he then
formulated a policy by which they immediately started out on the exploitation of their natural resources. The
result was a terrific boom and In a few
years they had nine million dollars cash
in the bank. Then the boom burst,
and in 1916 the estimated revenue was
six million and expenditure eleven million dollars, and they had even spent
the nine million they had ln the bank.
When the Liberals came into power
In 1916, therefore, they found conditions
in just as deplorable a state as they
were in 1903, and to meet their expenditures and balance their budget they
had to raise taxation. Then the boys

Happy Returns of the Day."
FRIDAY JUNE 29th. 1928.
WE IN CANADA may not make quite so much
noise about the First day of July as our
more enthusiastic neighbors to the South
do about the Fourth but we have just as great
right to do so as they. Perhaps stimulated thereto by their neighborly example, we are beginning
to pay more attention to the recognition of our
birthday anniversary, and, if so, it is one thing
at least In which we can emulate Uncle Sam. We
may not have so much to celebrate by way of
achievement, nevertheless we an; doing very well
thank you, for a young country.
We can cheerfully celebrate the fact of having
achieved nationhood, and the full and complete
recognition of it. without having had to "cut the
painter" likt our American cousins did. They
had to revolt against the rule of a King George;
we rejoice in possessing another and better King
George as our titular head. We have "this freedom" maybe because they first of all revolted,
yet we have it and are none the lower in status
because we still remain within the Empire, a self-
governing unit of the greatest commonwealth of
free nations the world has ever known.
Another just cause for celebration is that we
are now able to realize that, potentially, Canada
is one of the richest countries in the world. Our
soil is amazingly productive; we could supply
the world with bread. Our forests are able to
furnish newsprint to the press inimitably. Our
mineral wealth is boundless, and probably makes
us from a mineral point of view richer than any
other part of the Empire or of the world. Yet
we have hardly begun to cultivate our soil, hew
our timber, or mine our ores. Truly in these
things we find cause for celebration.
Above all we may make joyful celebration this
coming Dominion Day because at last we are sure
of high destiny. Time was when some would
have us seek annexation to our bigger neighbor—
this was many years ago. Time was when some
would have us meekly accept the status of colonialism and seek no higher place within the Empire
and amongst the nations of the world. All that
folly has long since ceased and the circumstances' you it's correct.
should be sick except that we seem to have
got in the habit of being sick. So many of
us, as we sometimes observe, "do not enjoy good
health". Why, we don't know, but it remains that
there are quite a lot who don't enjoy good health.
Indeed, there are many who "enjoy bad health".
It is not possible that the race has got into the
way of enjoying bad health, and has been doing
it so long, that we have come to look upon sickness
and disease as our natural portion in the land of
the living and to expect to be sick at times?
There are many people who have certain forms
of sickness regularly every year. Hay fever, and
quincy, for examine, are two forms of sickness
that some people have persuaded themselves that
once they have had either, they must continue
experiencing it once a year as sure as the time
comes around. Naturally, they get what they
expect. It is like putting a record in the victrola
If one puts on a jazz record one does not expect
the machine to grind out a symphony by Beethoven. In like manner, people put on the hay fever
record and expect to hear the Hay Fever Blues,
and do.
It might be a good thing to change the record
and think about health instead of disease. There
can be no doubt of the fact that modern research
has shown that sickness is more a matter of the
mind than the body. It is in our minds we are
sick, not in our bodies. Every new disease finds
many people ready to adopt the baby and give it
shelter. Who ever heard of appendicitis until
the late King Edward had it ? Then all the snobs
wanted it and got it. Now, it is quite fashionable.
Try thinking health instead of disease. Get the
thought of health fixed n your mind. Don't discuss disease. Disease is a negative; health is
positive. There is no need even for you to get
"better and better every day", as Coue taught.
All that is necessary for any of us to do is remain
normal every day. Health is the normal thing to
possess, not the abnormal. If you don't agree
with this ask your doctor about it, and he'll tell

Tires Save
You Money
Gum-Dipping ii an exclusive
Firestone process. It insulates
•nd impregnates every fibre of
every cord with rubber and
prevents the cords from chafing against each other.
In ordinary tires these cords
are uninsulated. In flexing
they chafe against each other,
causing internal heat and friction which softens the rubber,
causing blowouts and tire failure.
These better tires cost you
no more, yet they give thousands of extra miles. See your

'T'he Spring Floods in the Laurentians have in no
way affected the fishing in that district, sportsmen returning to Montreal have stated, adding that
the fish are biting better than previous years and that
the catch has exceeded their past records.
The Laurentians, so popular during the winter
for skiers, enjoy in reality a year round favour in
the eyes of holiday hunters, and have at every season
some particular attraction to offer. At present the
fishing is bringing many sportsmen up into the
mountains, and as usual this is proving to be i .' the
The Mont Tremblant district is perhaps tho

There are beautiful lakes not far from Mont
Tremblant, Lake Gauthier and Lake Ouimet, where a
hotel and summer cottages have been built and good
fishing abounds. The district north of Mont Tremblant is a pathless wilderness stretching as far north
as the Arctic Circle, with no settlements whatever.
The only human habitations are those of lumbermen
and hunters, who canoe up the Devil's River and the
intervening lakes during the fall of the year, making
their permanent camp about one hundred miles north
of Mont Tremblant.
Access to this recreation land is provided by
the Canadian Pacific Railway from Montreal to such

However, as you say, we've no friends
Even at home we're people of different races, different religions—"
Mitzi was unefnvinced.
"Ten to one that was all a blind—a
code." She beckoned Kurt, took up
the drum he had been playing with,
handed htm the sticks. "Come, son.
we'll go get father's supper. We love
him, don't we?—and our country?"
"Somo one," said the professor,
gravely, "ts saying that—those very
words—tonight in France."
Pauli's eyes misted suddenly. There
was a little silence, broken by Kurt's
small, cheerful voice raised in one of
the patriotic songs which were flooding tbe country. His mother took his
hand and led him to the door. Once
when he faltered in the words of thc
verse she prompted him defiantly,
"No nation that opposes us"—
The door shut. The two voices, the
child's voice, the mother's were heard
in the hall for a moment. Then silence.
Pauli touched the uniform with absent fingers. Her body shook. She
tried to speak, found, to her detached
amazement that she could not.   "When
'Father, 1 can't let him go!"
The professor was deep in thought
He pulled himself up, His mind reverted to the conversation about Gordon,   So she asked, wondering:—
She shook her head—for Pauli, almost impatiently.
"No, no. Carl—II anything happened
to Carl now—just for an Archduke,
whom nobody liked, anyway. My
country is you—and my home—and my
husband. I don't care who gets to
the Adriatic—why should I?"
The professor looked at her. Why
should she? Gentle, small and beseeching she sat there, such a little
thing, life had no right to hurt her.
But life is no respecter of persons. lie

the ugliness, the horror, with his
passion for beauty and truth, bis sensitiveness,  his  Ideals?	
The bell rang importantly. Baruska
entered in high spirits, her face flushed, her wet hands coiled In her apron.
Paull Said:—
"Father! I'm so afraid"—
"Hush!" he said, motioning toward
the maid as she passed through the
room, hut Paull cried out despairingly
:— "Am I selfish father? Am I wicked? 1 only want io know what it's all
Baruska from the door, announced
Behrend. She admitted him and returned to ihe -kitchen. August Behrend came in smiling and self-confident. He was very smartly dressed,
excellentaly groomed. He exulted
prosperity as the octuppus ink.
Pauli turned aside a moment, bent
her head over her neglected sewing.
Her face felt-not like her own face,
she thought—bewildered, all tense and
drawn, stiff with an emotion which
was part physical. Siie tried to order
il into its usual lines, its plasticity.
"Any  news  from England?"  asked
"Ten months!
Her heart said ten centuries.    So   the professor,

gravely.    He  said  definitely: —
'We have no right to cross Belgium'
Behrend laughed shortly.   He countered:—
"Wouldn't Frame, if we didn't? It's
a case of who gets there first. France
has been preparing for fifty years.
And we must defend ourselves."
Arndt made a sound like a groan.
He said:—
"Yes, and they're probably saying
the same thing—in France. In all l
history no nation ever attacked the ;
"France dreams of Napoleon and
the world dominion," Behrend instructed him. "while England—is the
cause of everything."
"Explain that to Pauli," interrupted
Arndt, with a sort of grim humour."
Behrend's eyes followed his friend's
to the quiet girl- He seemed to observe her for the first time since his
entrance. He smiled across the room
at her, spoke her name in greeting
and the Professor demanded:—
"Tell her what we're fighting for—
she just askcil me."
Bellrenfi  swelled  with   importance.
His heavy voice became ceremonial.
He said:—
"For our nationtal honor."
Arndt  laughed  outright.
"Didn't you just  say that nobody
fought for n principle?" he argued.
"Nobody but us." Behrend answered
hastily. "England's reason Is sheer
jealousy. She cannot compete witli us

Pauli began to shake again. She
asked appealingly:—
"You don't think he'll he called?"
"Not unless England enters—aud she
won't. But a man of my years can't
be dragged ont of his bed to say good

too old. you and I, Thank God, i have
a son!"
"A  very   proper   sentiment,"   said
A -ndt dryily.
Behrend's eyes shone. He said in
a: eager and stentorian voice, "What
a glorious end—to die for one's country!"
Arndt's mouth twitched with dls-
tr ste. He said clearly. "Oh, yes, I've
h aid it spoken of by people who don't
do it."
Behrend's mouth jarred open. Pauli's
e; ea were reproachfully on her fa-
tl er. He mustn't quarrel with Beh-
v< nd. she thought, panicky.
"August," remarked Ardnt before
Behrend could answer him, "I've p
p an to end all wars!"
Behren's bushy eyebrows rose.    He
a ked skeptically:—
"By making the men who declare
'cm fight 'em!"
Pauli rose to go. Behrend said soberly:—
"How can you joke on such a subject?"    He came heavily to his feet,
crossed tlie room, "Pauli?" he said.
"Yes. Mr. Behrend?"
"Call me father," said Behrend su-
perhly, lifting Carl's uniform from tlie
chair on which she had laid it.   "Are
you proud of your husband, Paull?"
Her mouth straightened into a thin
line.   She said, evenly:—
"Yes, I still believe that he is a
g -eat author."
She went out of the room. A little
silence followed.   Behrend shook his
"Disgraceful!" he said.
Arndt misunderstood. He asked
"Isn't it? When murder la taught in
schools and preached in churches!"
Behrend swelled, outraged.
"Murder!" he repeated Incredulously.
"Yes. With God as the Great Accessory!" Arndt continued bitterly.
Behrend looked alarmingly apople-

warning a tone that the Professor

"Muller's an old ass!" remarked
Behrend. "And now you, with no income.    How will you manage?"
"We're cutting down," said Arndt
cheerfully. "I don't mind, but Pauli
mustn't do without meat. And ther'.-i

"You carry too much. I've always

UPON the arteries of communication depend the
settlement and growth of the nation. First the
trails... then the rough oxcart ruts... the wagon roads
... the automobile highways.
The scattered population of British Columbia
has made the construction of roads between
centres a matter of vital Importance, yet one
of almost insurmountable difficulties.
Mountain sides have to be blasted away ...
clefts and chasms tresselled ... rivers bridged I
With the opening of the Cariboo Highway
through Fraser Canyon in 1926, the last link
of British Columbia's great arterial highway
... a highway unexcelled the world over as an
engineering feat and one of unmatched scenic
beauty ... was forged.
Eastern British Columbia greeted its western
brothers! Markets and railways were brought
closer to the farmer, the miner, thc industrialist. New fields for agricultural and trade
development were opened up.
For the ten years just past, an aggressive
highway programme has been carried out.
Thousands of miles of good roads and dozens
of sturdy bridges have been built.
Our roads system now totals SI,900 miles ...
an increase of over 5,0110 miles during the last
ten years. Of this mileage, 12,000 miles arc
earth   roads;  4,000   gravel   roads;   and   1,0110
macadam, bituminous, concrete and cement
concrete. The 5,000 miles which were added to
our roads system include: 884 miles of main
trunk roads, 002 miles of lateral roads, 281
miles of industrial and mining roads, 1,133
miles of settlement and farm roads, and 2,000
miles of ordinary and mining trails.
During the years just before 1917, a large
number of bridges had been constructed in the
Province, nearly all of which were temporary
timber structures. Since 1917, the problem of
maintenance and renewal of these structures
has been a serious one, involving a large ex-
pendlture, particularly between the years 1920
and 1027,
The policy has been to improve design of and
workmanship on temporary bridges and to
renew all the large bridges on main highways
over thc principal rivers with concrete and steel.
Today, the valuation of our 63 miles of
bridges is nine million dollars.
This construction activity has distributed
wages and salaries over our whole Province
and has been a material aid In bringing about
the current period of British Columbia's

'The British ambassador has been

'Nonsense!" said his father. That's
a canard. We don't do such things—
or our allies either."
'He was a spy!" Carl Bhot out defiantly.
"Even if it's true," Behrend pursued, "nothing will come of it. And
next week we'll be in Paris."
Carl went to his bedroom and opened the door. The sound oi iue
tramping feet came into the room filled it.   Carl said:—
"Yea I .suppose the whole thing's
as good as over."
Arndt spoke for the first time. His
face was drawn in lines of inexpresa-
able sorrow, impersonal sorrow. He
"And what waB it ail about, Carl?"
Carl started. The catchwords of
the street, of the press, came easily
to his lips.   He answered hotly:—
"We fought for civilization—for lib-
arty—and democracy!"
Behrend brough his palms together
in a gesture of applause.   Arndt said,
"I see"— —
"You don't deny justice is on our
side?" Carl asked his father-in-law,
"Justice is always on our aide," said
Arndt, "whichever side'that hsppeiiB
to be."
But Carl's thoughts had left him.
They were grasshopper thoughts these
days.    He said soberly.
"All over—so soon. Fritz will be
heartbroken at not bein needed!"
"We won't forget men like Fritz,"
promised  Behrend comfortably.
"Tears were in my eyes," said Carl,
standing straight and slim between the
two rooms, "as I stood.just now on
the  corner and   watched
Youth march by. Perhaps it is true
that war—struggle—keeps the race
"There are many kinds of strength."
Arndt broke in, "I recall, as a young
man travelling in Spain"	
"There's a degenerate country"	
'Behrend interrupted him, and Arndt
nodded and went on.
"Seeing horses ripped open by a
tortured hull—yes, I remember that.
And they told me such fighting kept
the race strong."
Behrend shook his head.
"That's no analogy. To mutilate
wretched horses—that's mere barbarism."
Arndt looked across at his friends.
He said, with great quiet:  —
"And to mangle a million men, to
stab and tear and blow them to bits—
that is war!"
Carl shrugged.   He argued:—
"But the bull fights ignorantly, without knowing why."
"Yes", Arndt agreed, "he's so stup>-
ld. Some on waves a red flag and he
charges that Ignoring the real enemy,
the menace behind it. But here comes
Pauli to announce supper."
'Not yet," said Pauli, coming in,
Her eyes flew, straight as homing
birds to Carl.   "Well—Carl?"
She came close. He laughed, put an
arm around her. held her to his side
his warm, vital side. She thought she
could hear his heart beat, or was lt
only the trump of marching men?
"My uniform can go back to the
closet and the camphor balls. Listen
to that. Already more troops than
we need or can use."
He released her strode across the
room, slung the uniform over his arm
and went with It into the bedroom.
Pauli followed him. She'd gone white
Her eyes were amazing .the pupils dilated. She said his name over and
over in little catches of her breath.
She took the uniform from his hands

the floor as she went into his arms

thev heard. "Carl—Carl—darling."
They had heard. Behrend said:—
"That Teminds me of something.
Carl—Carl. Oh, yes, Karlowltzer! I'll
go home to supper!"
"But began Arndt hospitably, yet
Behrend forestalled him with a raised
pontlflclal hand:—
"Don't urge me," he Implored "There
is no need In waiting now that Cart
remains with us. Besides, I have some
business papers at home which compel
my attention.   Carl!"
Carl came to the door his arm still
around Paull. Behrend looked at them
tolerantly, the tolerance of middle
age for youth. He said, half laughing, half chiding: —
"Pauli, my dear, remember the Spartan women."
Paull reached out a hand and closed
the bedroom door. She answered Behrend, smilingly:—
"Ah, yes; but they were savages!"
"I'll see you again Paull. I'll be
runnin gin frequently." He paused to
smite Carl on the shoulder. He addressed him deeply, "and you, my
boy; my heroic son!"
His red face was redder with emotion. He blew his trumpet shaped
noBe violently into a handkerchief. He
nodded at Arndt and went to the door,
stood there, his eyes on Arndt, his
hand creeping Into his plethoric pocket. "Don't forget, August, if you change your mind. Remember, I may need
your help later on."
He had gone. The room seemed
larger on his departure, stiller, brighter.   Paull cried out;—

Estimated to Contain
26,000,000 Tons
Commencement of operations for
the development of a new coal mine
on Vancouver Island, seven miles
south of Nanaimo, Is announced by
Consumers Coal Mines Ltd. This
company has recently been formed,
with head office in .Victoria, to take
over leases held on the property by a
syndicate of British Columbia men.
According to Mr. N. Sorrensky, secretary of the syndicate, which has held
the leases for the past eighteen years,
$280,000 was paid by the company,
plus royalties on tonnage produced.
The property Is situated on Boat Harbor, in the Cedar District, Vancouver
Island and comprises 2786 acres. The
coal Is said to be of a high grade bituminous quality.
Development work has commenced
on a ten-foot seam which is an outcrop on Round Island In tbe centre
of the harbor. This seam has been
traced acrosB both sides of the harbor
and fifty men are now at work on the
outcrop, so that shipments will commence shortly.
Early In July diamond drilling will
be commenced for the purpose of finding a suitable location for the shaft,
from which levels will be drifted under the harbor to tap the seams. It
was estimated by Mr. George Wilkinson, late government engineer that
there are about 26,000,000 tons of coal
on the property.
Mr. John Arbuthnot of Victoria is
president of the company, and Andrew
Wright vice-president. The directors
are: D. L. Cameron, R. H. Powall, J.

Resided in Cumberland Twenty-
Four Years Before Going
to Vancouver
.Many of (he old timers of Cumberland will learn with deepest regret
or the death of David Daniels one of
Cumberland's pioneer citizens but a
resident of Vancouver for the past
sixteen years.
David Daniels passed away peacefully on June 27, at 3:30 p.m. at his
residence. 2288, 10th Avenue West,
Vancouver. B.C., in his 75th year,
leaving to mourn his loss, his wife,
two nephews and one niece, D. J.
Nellist and W. NelliBt, of this city and
Hanah Fulton at home, also relatives
In South Wales. Deceased was born
in South Wales and came to Vancouver sixteen years ago from Cumberland, B.C., where he had resided
for twenty-four years. He was a
highly esteemed member of the I.O.
O.F. .and Knights of Pythias. The
funeral takes place today at 3 o'clock
from T. Edwards Company's Parlors,
2421 Granville St., Rev. J. R. Robertson officiating. Mr. Daniels will be

of work carried on in a modern timber
Representatives of all the influential
newspapers and journals of the province were present, beside staff writers
of Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco
papers, intent on telling the world
that here on Vancouver Island stand,
and is being cut, the finest timber in
the world, great areas of the noblest
trees, the giant Douglas flr.
And they have something to tell, for
here, in the heart of Vancouver Island,
they saw every operation, from "topping a tree," to loading and shipping
by rail from the camp to salt water.
To Dan Beaton, expert high rigger,
goes the honor of having the opportunity of showing his skill as a "monkey
of the woods," when he topped a tree
at one hundred and sixty feet. The
gambling spirit here gripped the onlookers and a pool on the height of the
tree was made up and Dan was forced
to make his second ascent to ascertain
who was the winner of the "pot."
Marvellously fast were the woodsmen
ln all their operations, and when the
visitors repaired to the dining room for
lunch there was no doubt ln their
minds that the logger is a very essential cog tn the industrial prosperity of
the province.
Turkey in the woods was on the
menu at the dinner hour, served not in
any prearranged style, but in the every
day manner that the lumberjack's food
is served to him, from a clean kitchen,
by cleanly cooks and help, and with
the same happy demeanor that has
made life in a modern camp worth
At the dinner table, where Mr. Thos.
Lamb, of Lamb Bros.'s camp, Menzies
Bay, who is president of the B.C. Loggers' Association, was master of ceremonies, and called upon Mr. Sid Smith,
manager of Bloedel, Stewart & Welch;
Mr. Aird Flavelle, president of the British Columbia Lumber and Shingle
Manufacturers' Association; Mr. P. Z.
Caverhill, chief forester, to narrate
some of their experiences ln the logging industry. Mr. F. J. Burde, of the
Vancouver Province, proposed a toast
to the Logging Association, which was
responded to by Mr. Phillip Wilson, of
McCoy & Wilson.
A toast to the international Timber
Company was responded to by Mr. R.
L. Cobb, general manager.
Early in the evening the party prepared to return to Campbell River,

money thus expended would be a loss,
but he asked his Conservative friends
If they would not have done the same..
These losses were only paying the price
of the cost of war and they could not
help that.
Other expenditures were entailed in
educating the people along health lines,
maintaining hospitals and providing for
(ubucular patients. Their mental institutions weer also costing them a lot
of money; this was a serious problem
.nd he believed sterilization methods
'vould have to be adopted. Then, during the last year, they had expended
$750,000 in mothers' pensions. The
Labor department was also costing a
lot of money but it was doing wonder-
ul pood and. said Mr. Pattullo, this
irnvince is big enough and prosperous
.trough to pay for these things.
Tlie government had adopted a pol-
■cy of laying out trunk roads throughout the province. In some portions
hese were completed and would be
completed In other parts and new trunk j
roads would be built where conditions'
demanded it. They were also building
rails in connection with thc mining
Mr. Pattullo criticised the proposal
>f Dr. Tolmle to do away with the $5.00
ee for a Free Miner's License, which
.cense, he said, was the Magna Charta
of the miner: the miners were willing
(o pay for it and Dr. Tolmie would not
ain any votes by that plank.
Dr. Tolmie. he said, wanted to keep
he boys and girls at home, but what
■ad he done when Federal Minister of
Vgrlculture towards keeping at home
the 750.000 boys and girls who left
Canada at that time^ 'He could say
hat since the Liberals had come into
lower at Ottawa these boys and girls
vere coming back to Canada.  Compares the United States and Canada, Mr.
Pattullo said that per capita there was
note unemployment   tn   the United
3tates today than there was in Canada; |
nit there would always be migration;
'jetween the two countries.  There was j
10 place on the face of the globe to-1
day where people could live under happier or healthier conditions than in
Canada and on country on earth with
a better moral standard.
The speaker then dealt with the timber industry. To maintain this industry the mature timber had to be cut,
and as far as re-growth was concerned, the great necessity was to keep out
fire. He had suggested some years ago
at a convention of timber men that
something must be done to increase the
off-shore trade; this was taken more or
less as a joke, but two years afterwards
he was complimented for the stand he
had taken and timber export had now
increased one thousand percent. j
The government was negotiating with!
the Federal government with reference!
to the return of the Peace River block,
and with reference to the P.O.E., and
the speaker suggested that it would be
good business to allow the McLean
government to continue that work. The
Federal government was sympathetic
towards them and this sympathy had
already resulted in the settlement of
the Indian Reserve question and the
Foreshore Rights question, which had
long been a contentious matter between
the province and the Dominion.
In closing, thc Minister of Lands
it a ted that he was very sympathetic
towards thc project of the establishing
jf a park on the Forbidden Plateau,
and ir he was in office alter July the
18th, lie would take it into consideration with other matters which they
were taking up with the Federal government.
