beeu looked for. However, when the
different players had seated themselves nut It was found that It took
six tables to cater to the bridge players and four tables for the whist
players.
Play was commenced about 10.1)0,
when refreshments were served by
'the Ladles' Auxiliary. After all hud
been catered to, play was re-commenced and continued until 11 45. The
scores were totalled with the following results: Bridge, Ladles' First, Mrs.

"POSITIVE HEALTH"
LECTURE GIVEN
BY MISS E. I. JOHNS
Those who had the opportunity of
hearing Miss Johns lecture here last
year were not disappointed In her on
Saturday night for, if It be possible,
her lecture on the latter occasion was
more interesting than last year's and
the manner of delivery was simple
and straightforward. .Miss Johns

matter which way the 1916 election went.
Baffled in their unfair attempt to call Mr. Bowser and Mr.
Sloan at the outset of the enquiry, the third party counsel backed
clown and confided their operations to cross examination. General Stewart, Darcy Tate, Donald McLeod, R. T. Elliott, K.C., R. J.
Crombie, Premier Oliver, Hon. Mr. Sloan, Mr. Bowser and other
witnesses were called to give evidence.
Despite the most searching examination it was proven conclusively that their was not a vestige of truth in the charges and
this morning Mr. Justice Galliher declared that so far as the
charges against Mr. Sloan were concerned the enquiry was over.
An adjournment of one week was granted in order that third
party counsel may prepare their case to proceed with the pressing
of other charges in the, commission regarding the construction of
the road. '
It is felt here that their charges will fall down as completely
as those disposed of and the third party, as a party, will disappear
within n few weeks.
Premier Oliver was the star witness and his evidence showed
masonry. During his remarks tho Itnat ever since the Government took over the P.G.E. everything

who won the series ln that section of
the Province. The Rangers took the
Ilrst game on February 10th, whon
they won by a score of 4 to 1 against
a considerably weakened team, several of the Juniors' regular players
being unavoidably absent from the
line-up. However, last Sunday both
teams were out In strength and the
score clearly shows which was the
superior team on thc day's play.
Referee Dave Wilson called the
teams together promptly at 1 o'clock
the Rangers deciding to defent the
Cnmp end of the fleld. H. Jones
kicked off for the Juniors and soon
had bis forwards swarming around
the opposing goal and were only prevented from scoring by the splendid
work of the goalie and backs. Play,
however, soon changed to the other
end where the Rangers had the goal
at their mercy several times but shot
yards wide. Campbell soon relieved
the pressure and from then on till
within twenty minutes of tbe end of
thc first half the Junior forwards kept
up an unmerciful attack being rewarded In the end by Robinson, their
Inside right, scoring a clear goal by a
well-placed kick into the right of the
net. This reverse put new heart
into the Rangers and from that minute
to ihe end of the half they bad things
all their own way but could not convert, their forwards falling down miserably when In front of the goal.
The second half started with a rash
by the Juniors and It was clearly
seen that they were out to increase
their lead. The opposing backs kept
them at bay for some time but lacking support from their forwards, they
at last wore down and gave way time
and again. Jones and bis fellows
penetrated at will but lacked finish
ot the goal-mouth only managing to
secure one more goal when they
should have got easily three, full
time came with the Juniors still pressing hut unable to score.
For the Rangers the full-backs were
easily the best men while Walker
played a hard game In goal, being
called upon many times to save hard
shots that looked like sure goals.
Foster, the Junior goalie, only handled thc ball once and that waa when
he stopped the only dangerous shot
at his goal In professional league
style. Tom Campbell played a
steady game at full-back and Wll-
cock showed up wonderfully well at
left-half, but the Robinson brothers
on the right-wing were easily the
pick of the day and penetrated the
opposing defense at will. "Jonesy"
Wilson handled the whistle tn a satisfactory manner and called them as
he saw them.
Next Sunday the same two teams
meet at the Recreation Grounds and
should put up one of the most inter-
teresting battles seen here for some

BOciatiOll since thnt dute. The ques-j
Hon of adequate club quarters for
thc association is under considern-1
tlon by the directors, but he was unable to make any definite announcement.
Attention was drawn to the delay

regnrd to what use the 3c tax on gasoline should be put to was that it
should be used for the keeping in good
repair the existing roads and that new
roads should he built from funds especially raised on a tax on the province at large and not on any particular body of citizens.
Attention was also called to the
promised Investigation by tho government on the price of gasoline and
how thc very mention of this brought

1112 P.C. INCREASE
IN LUMBER SHIPMENTS
Watorhorne shipments of manufactured lumber from British Columbia totalled 521.707,132 board feet tor
thc year 1923 as against 273,140,800
feet in 1922, an Increase ot 91 per
cent., according to an announcement
made by Hon. T. D. Pattulo, minister
of lands.
While this increase ln one year ls
unprecedented, a better Idea of the
growth of the lumber export business
In recent years is obtained when It
Is pointed out that British Columbia
wnterborne exports for the year 1916
vore only 43,676,000 feet, showing an
increase of 478,000.000 boardfeet, or
1112 per cent, as between 1916 mid
1923.
The minister of lauds point* out
that tho tremendous lncreaae began

shipped, double the quantity exported

shown a big increase.

MEMORIES
So surely as the years roll onward
that homo In which you now dwell
will be como extinct. The parents
will be gone, the property will be
turned over to other possessors, you.
yourself will be in other relationships
and that home which, only a few yenrs
ago, was full of cheerfulness, will lie
extinguished. When that period
comes, you will look hack to see what
you did, or neglected to do, in tho
way of making that home happy. 1'
you did not smooth thc path of your
parents toward the grave; if you did
not make their last days bright and
happy; if you allowed your younger
brother to go out into the world unhallowed by Christian and brotherly
influences; If you allowed the little
sister of your home circle to grow up
without feeling that there hud been a
most worthy example sol her on your
part, there will be nothing but bitterness of lamentation. That bitterness
will be increased by all the surroundings of that home; by every chair, by
every picture, by the old-time mantel
ornaments, by everything you can
think of as connected with that home.
Have you anything to do in the way
of making your father's home happy?
Now is the time to attend to It, or
leave It forever undone. Time is Hying very quickly away. Wo suppose you notice the wrinkles aro
gathering and accumulating on those
kindly faces that have so long looke.l
upon you; there Is frost In the locks
of hair; the feet are not as firm in
their steps as they used to be, and
they will soon be gone. The heaviest
clod that ever falls on the parent's
coffin lid is the remorse of an ungrateful child. Oh, make tholr last
days bright and beautiful. Do not
act as If they were in the way. After
long years have passed and you go
out to the grave where they sleep, you,
will find growing all over the mound
something lovlier than cypress, something sweeter than the rose, move
chaste than the lily, the bright and
beautiful memories of filial kindness
performed ere the dying hand dropped on you In benediction and vou
closed the lids over the weary eyes
of the wornout pilgrims.
TRY THIS PLAN
Home should never ho the place
where business is discussed—except
for a very short time. Mother hai
had all the troubles during the day
that are good for her, without being
compelled to listen to the troubles of
her husband. Father has had
enough caros while acting in the capacity of bread winner for the family.
without having all the details of the
home troubles of the day put on his
plate to digest for his evening meal.
Discussing the doleful from morning
until night is enough to set one crazy.
The man who carries nil his business
worries home and dumps them in lib-
wife's lap is a cry-baby. The wire
who nags at her husband about the
drip pan under the Ice chest is a
veritable pest. As we want to die
sane we never hash over our troubles
to our family. Homo Is the place to
show how good you feel. If you
don't feel as good as you would llko
to. take a walk In thc back yard until
you get into a condition that will permit you to be a comfort to those to
whom you are In duty hound to he n
comforter.

SAYWARD SETTLERS
GET GOV'T HELP
The Provincial Government is assisting the fertile valley of Sayward
by placing a large number ot pralrlo
settlers on farms In thot district. At
least this is the promise which J. B.
Arniishaw is currying back with him
to Sayward after an Interview with
several cabinet ministers In Victoria.
Representatives or the Intending
settlers visited the valley some time
ago and were greatly pleased with ths
prospects there but found that tho
road from the beach did not extend
for enough to secure suitable lands.
However, this will be soon remedied
for the government will build six
more miles of road. But another difficulty presents Itseir. Most of the
land was token up years ago and efforts made to get in touch with the
owners hove so far been fruitless.
Nevertheless an appraiser lias beoii
soul Into the district to put a value
on the land and then find the owners.
Should satisfactory results be arrived at a block of 2500 acres wlll be
open for settlement.
Most of the new settlers are men
of some substance and have farmed
| successfully for some years, their desire for a change being only to get into a milder climate. »

FORESTRY CAR TO
VISIT COURTENAY
MONDAY, MARCH 3
j DESIRABLE SETTLERS
MAY COME TO B.C.
The  "Forestry  Car"  of  the  Canadian  Forestry  Association  ia on  Its
way up the Island and will arrive in j
Courtonay March 3rd,   The car, which
Is a modern railway coach, was loaned by the Canadian National Hallways
to be hauled over every railway    tn
Canada  to forcefully bring    to    tho j
public mind  the necessity of forest
protection.     It is equipped as au ed-1
ucational exhibit aud contains models
of disastrous fires so vividly portrayed
that they will never he forgotten by
young or old.
One of the exhibits, which cost
$1,000, is divided Into two parts and I
Ihe subject is so strongly shown thai
even a child can grasp its meaning,
which is to show the value of water-
shod forests. The first part shows
a prosperous farming community
with an abundant water supply due
to the fact that the timber on the
slopes has been retained. Ou the
other part is shown a picture of desolation caused by the destruction of
the watersheds. Erosion has set in
and abandoned farms are everywhere
visible.
Every neck and comer of the calls occupied by products from our
forests and large photographs show
the forest activities. A large Marconi radio is also carried. The car
is sent hy the Canadian Forestry Association nnd is under the charge of
G, Gerald Blyth. The association is
supported entirely by voluntary contributions and government grants and
is an aggregate of over 16,000 Canadian citizens interested in forest preservation.
The car has already visited many
lower islam! points and will be In
Parksville on March 1st, Courtenay,
March 3rd and Alberni, March 4th.
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister ot
lands, announces that he has cabled
Agent-General F. C. Wade that ths
British Columbia Government will
advance progress loans up to $300 per
family to Hebridean settlers, on condition tbat the British Government
advances a similar amount. Settlers
would be given homes on islands and
along the coast, where conditions aro
similar to those In Great Britain.
The Agent-General has been advised to inform settlers of the conditions they will meet here, and that the
government has no intention either
of guaranteeing employment or providing them with doles, but that they
will be required to take care of them
s jives in the manner that other people
who are now here do.
The minister states that the government arrived at the conclusion to
mike this offer for two reasons:
First, In order to assist these very
worthy people at a Ume when they
are faced with distressing conditions
ami, second, that It will bring to
British Columbia a very excellent
and desirable class of settlers.

Public Opinion Puts The Chevrolet To The Front
that Victoria's business with the north
end of the Island had considerably increased during the last six mouths.
Victoria was supplying more to the
northern end of the Island than Vancouver and Nanaimo at a ratio of
1,000 to 800.
To Prlnc© Kupert
The possibilties of an increase in
business for the E. & X. by an extension of the line to the northern
end of the Island were pointed out by
the committee, special reference being made to passengers arriving on
the California boats on their way East
over the Grand Trunk Pacific. >t
present, passengers, mail and express are compelled to go from Victoria to Seattle and Vancouver, while
it is a well-known fntst that the dls-
tanco io Vancouver from Victoria via
Seattle is the same as to the north
end of the Island. They suggested
that passengers take the train at Victoria for the North to connect with the
Grand Trunk at Prince Rupert instead of Vancouver.
Admitting thut there would be quilt
a traffic from the south as well m
from the north going south, Mr. Peas-
Icy pott)ted out that it would take al
least 100 passengers a day to make
the road anything like remunerative
for the company, and he doubted very
much if there would be that number
Of passengers for some time to come.
Island ItpsoiircpH
The business that would accrue
from timber resources of the Island
and Struthcona Park as previously
outlined by the committee was referred to.
Mr, Beasley agreed with the opinion expressed by C. P. W. Schewen-
gera president of the Chamber of Commerce, when he stated the Chamber
should move carefully In asking the
Canadian Pacific Railway to extend
the road to the north end of the Island   at  once.      It   was  pointed   oul.

however, that the committee has no
Intention of going that far at the present time, but what they were hoping
to do was to recommend to the Chamber of Commerce that the C.P.R. be
asked to include in their next estimate a sufficient appropriation tu extend thc road at least to Campbell
River in the near future, which would
give access to Strathcona Park.
Any    suggestions    the    committee
could make showing that the road to
the north end of the Island or any
part of it could be made to pay would
be welcomed. Mr. Beasley slated. The j
C.P.R. had plenty of capital to spend
on extension of the line and branch
lines of a sufficient amount of busl-1
ness  to  pay  Interest on  the Investment was offered. .

Thc company was looking forward
he  stated,  lo    ilevelpomeuts    taking
place by way of the public highway ,
to  Long  Ueach.  on  the West  Coust.
This  highway   would  open  up   large
sections  of   valuable  timber  and   no
doubt developments would  follow  to
such an extent    that    the    company
would tind II would pay them lo build
the   piece   of   road   from  the   Sprout
Lake terminus to Long Reach. !
By building  the  highway  to  Long

members of thc committee. The beach I
is twelve miles  long and as smooth !

the  open  ocean   surf  bathing   is   oi'-j
fered, anil it would become a natural!
pleasure   resort   that   should   attract!

that thc highway  would    run    right I
through the heart of a great timber
track. ]
Tbe  fact that  private interests are
building small logging roads  lieyon I
Campbell   River  was  stated  by  .1.   II.

showing    the    demand  for  Ihe  line.
There  was a   volume of business to
be had, he declared, from  the large

and branch  lines tapping these various  timber  sections.      Other developments would follow he believed.

Although the Canadian Pacific
Railway has yet issued no forecast
of construction contemplated for
1924, the fact that it has ordered
50,000 tons of steel from the Algoma
Steel Company, of Sault Ste, Marie,
seems to indicate that its program
will be extensive.
According to a statement recently
made by the Hon. Charles McCrea,
Minister of Mines for the Province
of Ontario, 85 per cent of the world's
nickel supply is being taken out in
the vicinity of Sudbury, where there
is an inexhaustible supply of this
metal.
Alberta's butter production last
year was 18,500,000 pounds, or
2,000,000 pounds more than in 1922,
according to reports presented at the
annual meeting of the Alberta
Dairymen's Association. It was not
so long ago that Alberta was using
butter imported from New Zealand.
The year 1923 was a favorable
one in the building and construction activities of Canada, and returns show an advance of about 10
per cent. In 1922 the total expenditures in this regard were $315,000,-
000, and in 1923 $345,000,000, an
increase of $30,000,000.
Exports of pulpwood from Canada
for the year 1923 amounted to 1,-
384,230 cords, compared with 1,011,-
332 for 11122, an increase of 372,898
cords or 35 per cent. The 1923 figures are equivalent to about 900,000
tons of newsprint, the amount which
can be manufactured from that
amount of wood.
C. E. E. Usshcr, General Passenger Traffic Manager, and E. J.
Hebert, First Assistant General
Passenger Agent, of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, have been presented with medals by the French Government, in recognition of their services to the French Exhibition train
in Canada in 1921. The medals
take the form of tablets on small
stands.
• Attention has been drawn once
more by airship experts in London,
England, to the fact that tiie only
known supply of helium gas in the
British Empire exists in the Province of Alberta, that 10,000,000 feet
of this gas is going to waste annually in this province and that the
possibility of establishing an airship base at some future date in Alberta is being discussed.
Canada's fisheries production during 1923 is estimated to be worth
$40,000,000. At the beginning of
the year it was not thought that
anything like this mark would be
reached, for the Fordney tariff had
cut deeply into exports to the United
States. But as the year wore on the
demand and prices generally improved, thus giving fishermen along
the Atlantic coast especially a much
better price.
Official figures recently issued
show that the Dominion of Canada
is the greatest single contributor
to the wheut supply of the world.
She stands second only to the
United States in automobile exports.
Her flour exports are far ahead of
the palmiest war years and are rapidly gaining in the foreign markets.
Canada's mineral, forest, agricultural and fisheries industries are
now valued at $2,420,000,000, or
$252,000,000 higher than a year ago.
British immigration during the
nine months ended December, totalled 64,127, compared with 28,525
ln the corresponding period of the
previous year, an increase of 125
per cent. Immigration from the
United States was 17,282, compared
with 18,982, a decrease of nine per
cent. Total immigration for the
nine-month period of 1923 was 124,-
680, compared with 60,247 in the
same period in the previous year,
an increase of 107 per cent.
The Canadian Pacific Railway
has received from Boorings. Willis,
Faber t Company, 2,152.10 pounds
sterling for distribution to the officers and crew of the steamship
"Empress of Australia" for saving
their ship and for salvaging, during
the Japanese earthquake. For the
purpose of purchasing a memento
to be presented to Captain Samuel
Robinson, C.B.E., R.N.R., then commander of the "Empress of Australia" and now commander of the
"Empress of Canada" on her world
cruise, 210 pounds sterling have
been retained from the above
amount Plans are being made to
boner the captain when the "Empress ef Canada" reaches Yokohama next May, the Japanese government participating in the ceremonies.

being taken by the Dominion to satisfy its claim.
Mr. Hart, who has been pressing
the mutter before the Federal Government for some time, has suggest >d
to Mr. Fielding thnt the opportunity
should be taken during the coming
session at Ottawa to remedy the situation' created by last year's amendment to the War Income Tax Act.
"lt has always been the desire of
this (Iovernment to give protection to
Investments of capital in the Province," said Mr. Hart. "It would be
very unjust to mortgagees who have
registered a charge against property
to secure their claim for money advanced if the property were to be subjected to a prior Hen for Income tax.
When it was pointed out that a provision in our own Act might be considered in that light we at once made
the language clear, and I have no
doubt tliat lhe amendment of lasl year
to the Dominion law wlll be repealed
at tbe coming session."

LAMPS
ELECTRO-AUTOMATES
■"■■■(AUTOMATIC ELECTRIC LAMPS) —
NO BATTERIES! - NO ACIDS!

'WILL   LAST   A   LIFE-TIME'
«J?0»UUw,lr    , ACT   A    npW/rlMir5pt).UU
Practical, Durable, Always Ready on Land, Under
Water, Any Climate, Anywhere
The Electro Automate is an Electric Lamp made in France without a battery or refills, and of a new conception. It is a perfect
machine; the result of years of test In the plants of the manufacturers In Switzerland and France :: This marvellous little
pocket lamp, embodying simplicity, reliability and compactness,
weighs only 12 ounces.     It Is patented In all countries.
Tbe dynamo, with permanent magnet, based on new methods,
gtves dense magnetic fields of perfect concentration, which surrounds the Induction without loss of magnetic dispersion, and
permits the maximum exploitation of the energy.
Construction of these lamps is very carefully carried out by
skilled Swiss clock and scientific Instrument makers :: Electro
Automate Lamps are tight and dust-proof. They can be used
In ull climates. Including equatorial regions. They will everywhere fender tbe utmost Hervlce, giving a clear white light, without fear of thc bulb burning out or the generator bcoming
warm.
All Electro Automate Lamps are guaranteed for six months, conditionally that they are not tampered wilh. With reasonable
care Ihey will last for years. Any part can be renewed at slight
cost.    Lamps are provided with a pocket for extra bulbs.
This lamp ls especially useful to travellers, tourists, marine and
mining engineers, automohillsts, dairymen, in fact everybody.
They are Indispensable on life-boats and rafts, where a light is
needed that will not be extinguished by wind or wave :: Every
mine should be provided with one or more of these lamps at its
portal or entrance, for the convenience of the employee or official
whose work takes him In and out of the mine at irregular Intervals. It Is Uie cheapest and beat light on the market for this
purpose :: Marine engineers welcome Electro Automate In their
engine room. It saves them from the annoyance and loss nf
lime occasioned by the unreliability of battery lamps when they
wish to locate trouble or llnd something In a hurry :: Pilots are
favorable lo these little lamps because they are always standing
by ready and able to do their part In any and all kinds of
weather. They are hardy little fellows and wlll stand any
amount of knocking about, even to the bulbs, which are superior
to any others on the morkot:: Mushers over the northern trails
take these lamps In preference lo others, because they give a
never ending light and add less than a pound of weight to their
outfits. The winds can't blow them out and the snow or wet can
not short circuit them.
DIRECTIONS
The working of this self-generating lamp Is very simple. Pull the
lever completely and sharply with the Angers and let go, allowing
it to open fully In order to tuke another full stroke. Strokes
should be even and sharp for best results. This lamp Is the
only one of Its weight that will give a perfect light. Tlle bear-
lugs of this lamp should he oiled about once a month.

SETTLERS WANTED FOR
LAND NEAR P. G. E.
A vigorous campaign to secure settlers to people tho agricultural acres
tributary to the Pacific Great Eastern
Railway ls being launched by the Provincial Government under Hon J. D.
MacLean, .Minister of Railways.
"If the Pacific Great Eastern Railway is ever to be a financial success
and cease to be a burden on the taxpayers greater traffic and freight must
be developed for it." states the Minister of Railways. "That can only
be brought about by Increased production in the areas which thc line
serves and that. In turn, means thai
these areas must be populated. Rich
land Is available at low prices; ample
transportation has been provided, and
there Is a market for the products
that can be grown. All that is needed Is people."
The Railway Department will co-
Board and Departments of Public
operate with the Land Settlement
Works and Education ln providing
for the new settlers, who will be put
under the guidance of Mr. R. J. Walk,
director of land settlement for the
Department.
The Agent-General in London will
carry on publicity work and provide
Intending settlers with full information regarding available lands and the
Provincial Government will also seek
the assistance of the Dominion Department of Immigration and Colonization in promoting the settlement
scheme.
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, Minister of
Lands, has been advised by Agent-
General Wade that Dutch emigration
associations are prepared to purchase
200,000 acres In the Stuart Lake country on the same terms and conditions
as were offered to the British Government by Mr. Pattullo some time
ago.

of Lauds had this area carefully surveyed and classified with a view to
settlement. The offer to the British
Government was to dispose of the
tract at the classilied price, the proceeds to be devoted to the construction of roads and bridges and such
development as falls within Government scope.
The Stuart Lake area was Inspected
last summer by Sir John Pitka on behalf of a party of Etthonlans and Sir
John now advises Mr. Pattullo that be
will shortly leave Europe for Vand-

will be the forerunners of several
hundred families of hard working
settlers who should prove a great asset io British Columbia.

WANTED—A TEMPORARY
HUSBAND!
Never say that this old burg is a
sleepy one nfter this. The "street"
was fairly alive this morning, after
several of our worthy citizens had
glimpsed the above heading in an ad.
in last night's Victoria Daily Colonls'.
The full text of the ad. reads:—
"Young girl, 22 years of age, it-
tractive. must marry within a week.
Will pay any man who marries her
well, but he must leave her after the
ceremony. Prefer gentleman of good
breeding, but one who does not expect
to live longer than a week. Apply
Bums and Burns. Post Box 1000." '
One of our worthy citizens, who
shall be nameless, rushed into the
office this morning all nut of breath
and sprung the above on us. He gave
us the impression from Ills manner
that he had a notion to apply; ye
gods, a temporary husband, the first
line of the ad. reads all right, but
when our worthy friend got down to
the last line of the ad; "but one who
does not expect to live longer than a
week,' hung his head and wended
his way up the street, thinking perhaps that one in Cumberland was
much better than one here and one in
a strange city.
More than 125.0011 automobiles will
be produced in the new $12,000,000
plant of tlle Ford Motor Company of
Canada. Limited, at Ford, Ontario dur.
lug the year of 1924 according to an
announcement made by officials of
that company.
This production figure equals about
410 cars for every working day of the
year. Therefore, approximately no
complete automobiles will be produced
every hour of the eight-hour working
dny. Nearly a car a minute—a marvellous procedure.
One year ago the average car output was approximately 2f>0 cars per
day so the production capacity of the
great Ftod plant has practically
doubled in less than one year.
The new 15 acre machine shop, nil
under one roof, has made this production record possible, it was stated.
The insistent demand for Ford cars
'throughout Canada and the other
British Dominions has brought about
the largest expansion program ever
undertaken by an automobile Company outside the United States. The
