"Trade Across the Pacific" Subject of Well Known
On tho first occasion one of the coastal vessels of the Canadian Merchant
Marine wus already In process of conversion before anything was know..
tibout It. li was also Intended ut
that time to convert all four vessels
and we believe Die equipment for the
four ships wan assembled at Prince
Rupert. However, in deference lo thu
Vigorous protests which were lodged
at Ottawa from tlie Provincial Mines
Department, ami which were supported tooth and nail by tbe Hon. Dr.
King and Mr. A. W. Neill, member fur
Comox-Alberni, the Government intervened, and tlie work was stopped.
All the same, the committee handling this pari of the business of the
Canadian National Hallways, made
another al tempt the following year
but it ws again frustrated In its efforts by lhe Provincial Mines Department. Then last year a contract was
actually let for the conversion of tlie
Ltllooet, a Government boat, but Mr.
Neill got after this and the contract
was cancelled. This year tbe Canadian National ferry, the Canora, has
been converted from coal to fuel oil.
and we will now have the sigh of a
Government steamer coming into a
coal town, the people of which have
their Utile interest In the ship, propelled by fuel oil from a foreign country instead of Nanaimo coal. However, ibis year, as was tbe ease last
year, and the year before, the heads
of tbe people's railway have agreed
for the present to forego their Intentions of eon verting the remaining
three ships of tlie Canadian Merchant
Marine into oil burners.
Of course it may be admitted thai
the management of the Canadian National lias other objects in view than
to knock the coal industry of the Island, or to sacrifice the interests of
the eoal mining communities. The
Whole question is one of Business
economy witli the heads of the Canadian National, and they have concentrated so much on the reduction of
overhead expenditure that they have
lost sight of even greater factors in
running this transportation business
for the people of the Dominion. They
are operating these boats iu open
compel ition with other companies,
nnd they claim that the use Of coal
for steaming purposes is a serious
handicap'. Perhaps they are right
It can be taken for granted that if
American fuel oil was not a cheaper
fuel than Vancouver Island coal the
Canadian Pacific Company and the
Union Steamship campanies would
not be using it on their ships. Fo.-
no other reason than that of dollars
and cents would we have C.P.R. boals
and trains passing iu and out of Nanaimo tired witli American fuel oil
rather than with local coal. Put even
nt that It Is an easy enough matter to
show that what the Canadian Pacific
Company has saved in overhead expenses it has lost In trade an business
The Minister of Mines, the Hon, W. A
.McKenzie, points out that In Brltlsn
Columbia alone fuel oil is displacing
approximately one million tons of
eoal a year. The C.P.R. Is lhe largest
of fuel oil In the Province.

Juan de Fttca one sees on either shore
of this narrow channel a truly marvellous growth of timber. Indeed one
is amazed at the wonderful forestry

Island. This is especially true of the
very fine tn.ct of timber that extends
to the sea shore and is an unlimited
source of revenue to British Columbia.
Some of this timber, a great deal

Blackmore was present at tlie meot-
' ing and said that he was wiling that

, and it voted that this amount be paid
j to Mr. Blackmore.
Mr. Apps then addressed the meeting on the possibility  of starting; a
night  school here.    He said  thai   in
the past an effort had been made to
start such a school but it had proved
Ito  be  a  failure  because  those   who
wished to attend could not agree en
the choice of BUbJects to be taught.
I Mr. Apps pointed out that a few years
| ago Cumberland  had  a  good  school
iband and lie hoped that instrumental
music might be one of the subjects
t'taught at  night school.    He is sure
that   there are  many  talented  pupils
in   ilte  school   Interested   in   such  i
movement,    Mr.  Murray  also spoke
on   this   subject   and   said   that  even
itn: Department of Education iu B.C.
felt Ciis province is far behind other
provinces and countries In the study
of music.    He also pointed  out  that
this study would be good (raining and
would prove beneficial to those wishing to study music later.   Mr, McKinnon and Mr. Bannerman were appointed with Mr. Murray to make an effort j
to   promote   the   movement   and   to j
procure some instruments for the use I
of the school.

Mr. Frederick Phillip Grove the famous Canadian novelist. Mr. Grove
will speak on the theme, "Canada—
the Spiritual Awakening of an Individual or Nationhood."
The guest of honor was born in
Malmo, Sweden, of wealthy and cultivated parents, and was educated In
Sweden. England. France, Germany,
aud Italy. At the age of twenty-four,
his family's fortune failed, his parents died and he set forth without re-
sourcea or experience to earn a living, Alter many Wanderings and
trials he at last found a home In Canada, and for many years has been a
school teacher and writer on the
prairies of tlie west.
Mr. Grove found in western Canada
an individuality lo which his own
responded, and there his literary talent developed. He Is a voluminous
writer and has nineteen novels in
manuscript ffla published works
represent but a fraction of his writings, which spread over thirty years.
He has made it his task to assist newcomers to Canada to find themselves
nnd to see distinctive characteristics
of the  Dominion.

Lt.-Gov. Officially
Opens New Hall
At Courtenay
I Four Hundred  Attend at  First
One of. if not the most important
social event that has occurred in Courtenay was the laying of the cornerstone and ofllcial opening of the new
Native Sons of Canada Hall by His
Honor, thc Lieutenant-Governor of
British Columbia. Hon. R, Randolph
Bruce, on Wednesday evening.
Shortly after si:< o'cluck His Honor,
accompanied by Miss MacKenzie, arrived at the building where a large
crowd was awaiting him nnd was received by Mr. J. N. McLeod, Chairman
of the Committee, who welcomed him
on behalf of the Native Sons. The
structure, he said, represent ed the fulfilment of a drcain which they had
had since the organization of the lodge
in Courtenay and they felt they had
every reason to be proud of their efforts. The building stood as a monument to their greatest industry and
in its rugged structure they saw symbolized those hardy, pioneer virtues
Which their forefathers so nobly represented. It was a glorified log cabin
the first home of those hardy souls
who braved the dangers of sea and
land to lay foundations for the great
Dominion. It was their hope that the
fruit of the hall would in some small
measure equal the fruits of those
Mr. McLeod then presented His
Honor with a silver trowel and asked
him to lay the cornerstone of their
hall, which was dedicated to the building up of a nobler and finer citizen
of their beloved Dominion.
The Lieutenant-Governor said he
was deeply sensible of thc honor done

achievement, one which could not have
been performed In any other country,

thc cornerstone they were to enjoy a
banquet In the finished building. As
the weather was rather inclement. His
Honor said he would defer any further
remarks until they were more comfortably seated around the banquet
table and then proceeded with tlie formal ceremony of laying the cornerstone, a massive piece of granite
Weighing   approximately   000   pounds.
Before the stone was placed in position, a copper box was placed in the

FRIDAY,  OCTOBER 5th,   1028
THERE IS no doubt but that a large percentage
of the degradation, disgrace, ruin and crime
among the young, springs from the habit of
night prowling, corner loafing and kindred acts
of both sexes in city, town and hamlet all over
this broad country. Any person who keeps his or
her eyes open knows this. Hundreds of boys
and girls are oul at night and we all know that
many influences for evil and none for good surround them continually. A curfew restriction
may be derided as old fashioned and puritanical
but the fact remains that there is less night
prowling in towns that have a curfew ordinance
and enforce it. The curfew rings every night
in Cumberland, but, from some cause or other
it is never enforced. The only thing that happens
when the curfew goes is for a lot of people to pull
out their watches and compare the time.

THE TERM "Printer's Devil," as applied to the
boy who does the chores around a printing
office has a peculiar romantic history. In
early days printing was styled the "black art,"
and printers were supposed to be in league with
his satanic majesty. But it was in the time of
Aldus Minutius in Venice that the matter took
a serious turn. This was the famous printer who
first published the Greek and Roman classics. He
took into his employ a negro boy who was home-
TALKING to a "Daily Telegraph" representative, Miss Sybil Thorndike said, "1 can claim
to have made a study of at least two heroines,
St. Joan and Edith Cavell. I am always inter-
I ested to lind out what makes women do these
j things. 1 am a miserable coward myself, although
JI always hope I sh iuld not be cowardly in a crisis.
| "The story of Nurse Cavell like that of Joan of
| Arc, is of the conflict between two duties. Nurse
! Cavell died because her duty to humanity cut
! right across her duty to the code of war. St.
j Joan found that her duty to God prevented her
I from 'playing the game' by the Church. They
1 both had fair trials, and their judges did per-
! fectly right from heir point of view. What can
! you do with peopl! who who, like these two women, see things that other people do not see, and
| follow them to the death? Until we have another
set of values the end of the story will always be
the same.
"Nurse Cavell was an honest, line worker. But
everyday heroism and extraordinary fortitude
are not very popular qualities.
"I had a vicarage upbringing, and almost from
babyhood came into touch with hospital matrons
and heads of charitable institutions. And so I
found that I knew Nurse Cavell's attitude to many
things. I found that something in myself was
like something in her. One of the most illuminating things about her was that her ten weeks in
prison did not wear her spirit down. The quiet
and the being alone wore an absolute refreshment
after a life that had always been full of difficulties."

the government Is willing to pay a
certain subsidy to the railways if Al-
herta eoal can he landed In the big
eastern centres at a price which will
enable it to compete with coal from
the United States. If this Is the policy of the Government in a matter of
this importance, it follows without
argument Hint il would hardly consent to have Its ships plying on this
coast converted from coal to oil burners. The coal industry and the people
it supports pay their share ot taxes,
and In so doing have contributed their
share towards keeping the Canadian
National in opertlon. Surely, then,
their interests should he considered
when It comes to a question of whether foreign oil or local coal should be
used for fuel. If tlie ships cannot he
operated at a prollt unless they are
converted into oil burners, then let
them he sold or scrapped. And, finally
this is the wrong time for Government
ships to lie converted from coal to oil
when apparently sucli successful experiments are being carried out with
pulverized coal. Wo understand that
I lie Federal Government is interested
ill these experiments, and that trie
Provincial Government is interested
in these experiments, and that the

Surely Sir Henry Thornton and Ills
subordinates can wait until lhe result

are aware that there are some poln.s
in tlie miingciiient of the Canadian
National which arc noi subject to
Government Interference, but the Government has ultimately to shoulder
Uie responsibilities for whatever It
has done. The blocking or the Invasion of Canadian fuel markets by
American find oil is one of the problems the Government has to solve, and
common sense dictates that the Government sholud not be embarrassed
in its efforts by any ill-considered

then proposed, and replied to by Dr.
MacNaughton, who said that in his
professional capacity it had been his
privilege within the past twenty years
to extend a welcome to many of the
native sons of this district. They
could speak no English, had not a cent
in their pockets and the C. P. R- declared no dividends by reason of the
excess baggage they carried.
After a song by Mr. G. A. Kirk, the
toast to the Cities of Courtenay and
Cumberland was proposed by Major
A. M. Hilton and replied to by Mayor
J.  W.  McKenzie.
In proposing the toast to the debenture holders. Mr. P. L. Anderton paid
tribute to Mr. R. J. Filberg and Mr.
G. L. Van Hemert for the assistance
each had given in the construction of
the hall, also to the builder, Mr. W.
J. Hagarty. It surprised many to learn
that when they started the building
they had only $H90 in the bank, but
it was now practically finished and
the sale of a further $2500 debentures
would pay for it. Their object was to
pay all interest and put $2,000 into a
sinking  fund every year.
The Lieutenant Governor was then
again called upon and reiterated how
pleased lie and Miss MacKenzie had
been to come up to Courtenay. They
had formed good impressions on their
former visit and had promised ihein-
selves the pleasure of the trip when
occasion presented. It was a beautiful drive up from Victoria, not to be
equalled any place in the world. They
had not iu.i into the rain until they
arrived at Qualicum and were somewhat disgruntled but a little further
along were pachied when they found
that the rain was a blessing in putting
out some rather di^astrou:; fires.
He was delighted to find such a great
crowd to welcome him. They had a
soft spot in their hearts for Courtenay where they found such a wonderful comunity spirit.    The hall was a
wonderful piece of work and he congratulated Mr. Anderton and the committee for what they had accomplished and thought they should move down
to Victoria and see what they could
do with the resources of British Columbia. He paid tribute to the pioneers and adjured his hearers to always remember those to whom they
owed what they had to-day. On behalf of himself and his neice, Miss McKenzie, he expressed the hope that the
new hall would always be the centre oi
the social life of Courtenay and that
the community spirit would continue.
On behalf of the Committee. Miss
MacKenzie then presented Mssrs, Filberg and Van Hemert with gold keys
signifying that the hall was always
open to them.
In acknowledging tlie presentation,
Mr. Filberg gave one of the finest
has been our privilege to hear. It
was a masterpiece, an oration.
Mr. Van Hemert also gracefully acknowledged thc presentation.
Mr. T. Beckensell, replied on behalf
ot the bondholders, of which he is one
oi the heaviest. When they are issued
Mr, Beckensell is to receive No. I bond.
The loa.st to the Ladies was then
given by Mr. Tom Menzies, replied to

Appendicitis is a public health problem because the public need to be told
of the early symptoms so that they
may promptly secure proper treatment which will greatly reduce the
present death-rate from  this disease.
In the majority of cases, appendicitis causes a condition that a physician will readily diagnose. Tain towards the centre of the abdomen, followed by nausea and vomiting, is
usually the first symptom. The pain
varies iu intensity; it may be of a
griping character. Later, the pain
usually moves to the right lower part
of the abdomen, and the abdominal
muscles in thai urea become hard and
tense. This is Nature's effort to protect the Inflamed part.
When any person or ndult -lias
pain in the abdomen, even when the
pain is not accompanied by nausea
or vomiting, the family physician
should be sen! for at once. The only
satisfactory treatment for appendicitis is operation. The chance of recovery  practically  depends   upon   tlie

This report  reveals
fact that
Japan bou lit more than fifty million
dollars worth of lumber In 1927, 90r;
of which came from the North American continent. Also, although the
United States' export has been practically stationary, Canada's export liar.
been Increasing tremendously. It, Is
Interesting to note the growth of lumber exports to Japan during recent
years, particularly ln comparison with
those of the United States, In 1923.
Canada's export was only one-thirtieth
oi that ot thc United States, wheeras
in 1027 it was one-sixth. Of Japan's
total imports in 1025, Canada supplied
one-fortieth; in 1928, one-twenty-sixth,
and in 1927. one-ninth.
The total amount of lumber shipped
from Vancouver during 1927, in deep
sea trade, is as follows:

Columbia River 55.000,000   "
As it is. Vancouver ts exporting obout
fifty per cent of thc total lumber exported to Japan, and this amoint I:
increasing all tho time and there is no
reason why it should not continue
increase, aud even more rapidly.
Just recently a lumber company In
British Columbia which has been
spending large sums of money carry
hi;: lumber Trom the north to the south
shore of Burrard Inlet for overside
loading, has constructed a wharf on
the mirth side of the Inlet where one
of thc Japanese freighters en route
from Seattle to Japan touches and
loads the lumber directly, thereby saV'
ing several hundred dollars per 10,000
cubic feet for the lumber company.
The principal species of rough lumbar from North America into Japan 111
192:1 and 1024 were Douglas fir. 10' b
cedar, 2V;; and hemlock, 30',;.
Douglas llr. which is similar lo Japanese Matsu, although a trifle lighter
and .softer, does not cut so well, and it
is harder to work on. As for durability, Japanese Matsu Is fnr superior,
Douglas fir is especially suitable, and
is much used lor bridge construction.
Ship building, railway cars and floor
ing. Japanese Mnt.su Is superior i:
quality, but large straight timbers arc
difficult to get, and Douglas fir is used
where heavy timbers of great size are
Red cedar is lighter and weaker thai
Japanese Sugl, but on account of its
durability it Is very useful for outside
Hemlock is whiter   than   Japanese
Toga, also lighter, softer, and easier
to work on, and lt expands but doi
not warp,   It is becoming increasingly
popular of late.
Canadian timber is always imported
according to certain specified sizes. In
the trade in Japan, as in Canada, these
special requirements have become more
or less common or standard, although
It Is peculiar to the Japanese market
alone in many Instances, The imports
for 1923 and 1924 were as follows
Large and medium .squares, 24 per
cent; baby squares, 25 per cent; logs,
34 per cent; and others 8 per cent.
There were large increases recorded in
every specification noted above, amounted to 31.5 per cent, as compared
with the purchases In 1923.
The development of the port of Vancouver as agrnin port in recent years
has been phenomenal, Last season
she shipped out more than 80 million
bushels, and she now holds a very prominent position in the grain trade of
Canada. The causes behind her rapid
strides in this direction arc: (1) The
reduction of the freight rales on wheat
a.id flour for export; (2) the construe
tlon of grain elevators und loading
equipment at Pacific Coast ports, etc,
But one cannot fail to see the part the
Orient, In particular Japan, is playing
and will play in the grain trade of
Canada, tn 1920 there was no export
of wheat from Canada to Japan, but
m 1921 the export was $3,000,000 worth,
United States and Australia arc Canada's competitors in this market but
Canada is well In Ih" bad with an export of $11,000,000 worth last year.

ment forecast the total crop Tor Ca-

than 550,000.000 bushels, which Is see-
on;! to no: e i ■ the history oi Canadian
Wheal prediction. Thc increase in tha
production cf grain in Alberta and
Bask tcho\ an, tho gradual migration
westward of grain growing In Canada,
and the exploitation of th.- Peace River
district, all point to a future in which
Canada will b- able io supply whatever
amour   the Orient may demand.
Other important items of Canadian
exports 10 Japan arc pulp, lead and
zinc, dried and salted fish, and aluminium and Its manufactures. Last year
the total exports to Japan was over
$55,000,000, and Japan rates trom 3rd
to 5th every year as an importer oi
Canadian goods.
Of Japanese imports Into Canada.
silk, of course, is the most Important,
over $3,000,000 last year, Japan exported in 1927 silk to the amount ot
$370,000,000. The greatest amount
went 10 thc United States, 90',; of the
whole, in fact; France stood second.
Great Britain third, and Canada
It was only after 1800. when silk was
sent lo foreign markets for thc flrst
time, that it came to be produced for
export purposes, and a very rapid dc-
lmprovement has been made In reeling pro and con; but setting aside their
01 machines iu recent years; division of academic value, his conclusions and
labor is practiced and the industry is - the practical lessons deduced therefrom
carried on under the mass production were very important; that is to say, at
system. Efficiency has thus been hi- tnc time thc essay was written, most
overbed. There are at Yokohama ten
silk shipping houses managed by Japanese, and fifteen managed by foreigners. In former days the shipping
business was entirely in the hands oi
foreign merchants, but in time certain
ulg houses Btepped into the arena and
icok over the greater part of the business. The toial export of raw silk from
Yokohama last year was 34' i by
Japanese shippers. Silk is Japans
staple commodity on the export list,
supplying about GG I as against 21%
oi China, aud 9': of Italy, ln the total
lonsumption of the world, Japan also
mips great quantities ot raw siik to
he United suites via Vancouver, and
he ocean freight rates and ovorland
reight rates means much revenue ro
Janada, also handling charges at Vanouver. Last year the O, S. K. changed
hen- policy and decided to send two
joats, ihe Vans Maru and the London
viaru direct to Vancouver from Japan,
30 that With these boats and those 01
N. Y. K. in addition to the Empress
boats, Vancouver now has a conspicuous shipping position on the Pacific
coast. According to reliable informa-
iou. during the first half of last year,
Vancouver's share of the silk import
of the Pacific coast was more than
147, The ocean freight rates for 100
lounds of silk is $4.50. and the rail rate
trom Vancouver to New York is $9.00,
^:.e bale weighs from 100 to 120 lbs,
0 you can readily see what a great
cvcime there is lor Canada as U re
mlt of this system of shipping through
Canada. . ,,,
There Is one more item of invisible
radc: that Is the money Japanese
>oats are spending In Vancouver. In
L920 only 15 Japanese boats came In.
The number has been increasing every
year, until last year the maximum
vas reached, with 100 boats. Each
boat, I should say, pays something
iround $1,000 for provisions, also harbor dues, pilotage, port warden's fees,
ratchmen's salaries, etc.
Next to silk comes Japanese green

n Canada are to be found in the Easi-
■rn part, chiefly in Ontario. Japanese

Oranges, peas and beans, chinawnre.
brushes, and buttons arc the other
:hief items of Japanese exports to
Janada. The total amount 01 Canada's
mports from Japan last year summed
up to almost $12,000,000.
The other day an agent ol a certain
lumber company in Ontario came to
Consulate.   He said that ho had
ben   selling  Japanese   veneer   boards
some time, which boards he nad
been getting from Boston.  I might cite
1 similar case that of tlie Saskatchewan Stationery Company, who wrote
asking us for the name of a certain
manufacturer of fountain pens, which
are very popular in their district, and
which they insist are made In Japan.
although they have been importing
them from the United States. And I
am sure many of you are very familiar
with Dr. West's toothbrushes which
come from the United States, but if we
look carefully we can find on these
brushes a little mark of the country of
origin—Japan, Thus it seems that a
number of Canadian merchants are
doing business in this way: sustaining
an unnecessary loss to the Canadian
customer as he is bearing thc double
duty, first into the third country, and
then into Canada herself.
It must be of particular interest tc
some business men of your district to
'.mow that during thc Great War many
Japanese liners bunkered at Vancouver. The coal came from Union Bay.
But these days most of the Japanese
boats bunker in Japan on their way to
Canada, taking on enough coal for the
return voyage, too. so they do not buy
much coal in this country. If they
had heavier cargoes coming this way
they would not be able to stock up with
so much coal, so ns the trade between
the two countries increases and Japan
is exporting more goods to Canada,
many Japanese boats will be coaling
here", thus favorably affecting the coal
industry on Vancouver Island. Now
It Is the pride of Canadians that Canada has supplied to mankind materials
for food, clothes, aud lodging, and that,
owing to her almost boundless natural
resources, she can go on doing so hi
the future, and as British Columbia Is
one of the richest and most influential
provinces in the Dominion, the people
of British Columbia must feel this
pride In a double sense. One could
give many reasons and enumerate
many causes why British Columbia has
gained such n predominant position,
but the outstanding factor Is her position, a gift from the Gods, situated
as she Is on the eastern shore of the
Great Pacific,
Prom ancient times the ocean has
conferred on mankind manifold benefits; always from her contact emanates
exchange, wealth, and civilization, The
ocean Is, thus, thc benefactor of the
human race, and It is indeed a precious 1 ill to have the ocean at. one's
feet. All nations of the world arc
equally at liberty to receive the benefits of the ocean, but none can monopolize It, for mankind is diffident of his
Creator; hence the principle of "freedom of tho sea' as initiated, in 1009,
by Hugho Orotlus, father ol International law Is quite reasonable. And
this principle of the freedom of the
tea has since become more clearly recognized ar.d more firmly established.
For thousands of years thc Mediterranean seemed dominant among the
waters of the world, conferring on the
nations of her shores those priceless
Sifts, exchange, wealth, and civilization, From most ancient times come
ales of trade and export; your British
Columbia lumber export is but a stupendous echo of tlie commerce of these
ancient traders, the Phoenicians, who
sold and shipped the forests of Mt.
Lebanon. With the discovery of the
American continent the Atlantic Ocean
acquired a hitherto unrealized prominence and commenced to play a role
similar to that of the Mediterranean
In contemporary history. With the
dawn of the twentieth century the
Pacific came into the limelight aud
now it is her turn to play a dominant
part. The present and the future indeed belong tu the Pacific, and 10 the
nations on her shores, what Is to be
denied? With the transformation
which has recently taken place In
British Columbia who can doubt but
that many other gifts are to be hers,
along with the heaven-sent one of her "lar;  the>   only ink
statesmen, no matter what kind of;
politicians, thought that a dense population was the surest indication of
national prosperity, and that the en-1
couragement of an increase in population was the first duty of every]
statesman. As a gentle humorist put
it: The honest man was married early
and brought up a large family waa
thought to be of more regular service
than he who continued single and
talked of population.
However, the reasoning of Malthus
went to establish a conclusion direct- \
ly opposite to this; but there was no,
necessity to change the opinions of
the politicians or Japan, as they had!
never really considered increase In
population as an indication of national prosperity, but rather regarded thc
density of population merely as a traditional phenomenon, even before the
Restoration 60 years ago.
One might imagine that the density
of population in Japan would result
In extreme business activity and competition, but actually this is not the
case. And so far as Canada is concerned, density of population of Japan
means nothing more or less than a
large field of purchasers who can create a strong demand for great quantities of Canadian products, which can
bring about a very profitable state of
affairs for the Canadian people; the
more people in Japan, the greater the
consumption of Canadian products
for instance, lumber for building material and wheat for foodstuffs, etc.
Very often, recently, we hear Vancouver called the Canadian Gateway
to the Pacific. From a geographical,
commercial and industrial point of
view the Eastern and Southern shores
of Vancouver Island are inseparable
from Vancouver, that is. they are all
one and the same thing, and you
gentlemen, residents of this district, are
:cry important 111 position, and accordingly your responsibility is very great.
Here in Canada, particularly In British Columbia, you sec Japanese people
engaged in the development of the
natural resources of the country. They
u*e exploiting the Canadian soil, and
nothing else, Therefore they deserve
a certain amount of appreciation from
Canada and the Canadian people; but
this they do not get. On the contrary,
it docs not seem to us that they are
welcome to this country. Of course.
there may be some exceptions, but,
generally speaking, we find that they
are not welcome here. On their part.
they arc thankful to be able to keep
their families here, and to make a living and advance as much as possible.
Under this feeling of gratitude they are
doing their best In their callings because they know only in this way can
they thank Canada and British Columbia.
One of the best ways to mitigate, or
further to eradicate thc anti-Japanese.
or anti-Oriental feeling. Is for Canadians to visit Japan and see things as
they really are over there, und vice
versa for Japanese to visit Canada and
acquire a more comprehensive view of
conditions here.
When I was in England, on the eve
of saying good-bye to one of my English teachers, he said to me: "To sec
and to understand is thc greatest need
of the world." I remember it well, and
in Japan we have a common saying
which is similar—"Seeing once is superior to one hundred times of hearing." And so you must go to Japan
and see the actual facts of life there,
and then you will understand the true
merit of Japan and of the Japanese
people not only in Japan, but also
those who are now in Canada, and
British Columbia,
Although the Pacific Ocean afrords
thc opportunity and the means of exchange, this exchange can not bo built
on a permanent and solid foundation
unless it is based upon real understanding and enduring amity. It is for
you. you Canadian gentlemen living in
such an important district as the so-
called Canadian Gateway to the Pacific, to establish exchange on a permanent basis such as I have outlined.
It Is a great responsibility for you all,
for once exchange in this sense is firmly established, it will be easily maintained, and more and more as thc
years go by. the wealth and prosperity
consequent upon such exchange will
follow naturally, and gradually thc
ci\ lllzal ions on either side of the'
Pacific, through contact with each1
other, will shine more brightly ln all!

Is   Detective   -   Hypnotist    in
"London After Midnight"
New M-G-M- Film
Will n hpnotized person, led to the
scene of liis crime, unconsciously re-
enact the details of Ills niideeds?
This Is the theory, lately voiced by
many experts In hynotism and mem- }
tal mysteries, which Lon Chaney uses i
in his latest role, that or a detective i
hypnotist in "London After Midnight"
coming to the Ilo-Ilo Theatre this \
Friday and Saturday. i
In  the  new  picture Chaney plays |
a   Scotland    Yard   detective,   pitted ,
against a strange hand of crimluals '
operating  in  a  "haunted castle"  on
an old English Estate.   The action of
the play takes place in Scotland Yard,
in   London,   ln   strange   underworld
dives in the English capital, and In
ghostly surroundings of the castle.
Hypnotism telepathy and the strange
belief of "vampires" or the "utwlead,"
which for centuries has been held to
In   many  parts   of  Europe,  are   all
worked  into   the  uncanny  tale.    A
notable cast is assembled for the picture.
The Story is an original by Browning with the scenario by Waldemar
Young. This combination created
such Chaney successes as "The Unknown", "The Unholy Three" and
others  of  note.

novel  "The Little Yellow House."
Mr, Small has adopted "Make the
world laugh!  as his slogan.
How well he has succeeded Is demonstrated by the three latest contributions to the screen tbe uproariously
funny "McFadden's Flats." "The Gorilla," and now "Ladies Night In a
Turkish Bath." The latter is reported to be one of tbe funniest comedies
ever filmed.
"Our mission is tp make people
happy, to give them hearty laughs."
says Mr. Small. "It is my belief that
a fine screen comedy, based on 'he
events of everyday life rather than
exaggerated and Impossible things,
does more to make people contented
than anything else."
