 THE CUMBERLAND ISLANDER
it
FRIDAY, MARCH 26, 1926.
With which is consolidated,the Cumberbnd News.
CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA FRIDAY, MARCH
p™»c*., Library     Jaftl)2,
W. H. Cope At
Head Of .Local
Tennis Club
If present enthusiasm at the executive and members Is any Indication
of what the fdture holds In store,
then the Cumberland Tennis Club ls
in for a banner 1926 season. This
was brought ouf at the annual meet-
ig of the Club, held Wednesday evening in the Council Chambers, the
latter being kindly loaned for the
occasion by the city fathers, and although the meeting was not largely
attended, still those present lost no
time In getting re-organized and their
opinions of the new season were de-
' cldedly optimistic.
Election of officers resulted as follows: President, Mr. W. H. Cope;
vice-president, Dr. E. R. Hicks; secretary, Mr. H. Stewart; treasurer, Mr.
O. W. Clinton; honorary president,
Mr. Thomas Oraham; together with
an executive committee consisting of
Miss M. Brown, Mr. A. R. Stacey, Mr.
M. H. Oraham, and Dr. 0. K. MacNaughton.
Fees wlll be tie same as last season
—$7.60 for single season ticket, $10
for man and wife, and |4 for single
half-season ticket, the half seasons
to run from April 1st to June 30 th
and from July 1st to end of season.
Provision was also made for the
Junior players, their foes being $2.00
for season ticket and $1.00 for half
season. They will, however, have
the use of one court only from 3 to
6 on Mondays and Thursdays and
both courts on Saturday morning up
to one o'clock.
All fees are to be ln the hands of
the secretary on or before April IS,
for after that date only paid-up members will be allowed the use of the
courts. The season will be officially
opened on Wednesday, April 28th,
and arrangements are being made to
serve afternoon tea on that occasion.
NEW TENNIS COURTS
AT LOCAL SCHOOL
GROUNDS COMPLETED
Two fine tennis courts have Just
been erected at the grounds of the
Cumberland Schools, a part of the
extensive programme of Improvements undertaken by the local School
Board. It Is a most excellent Idea,
this building of tennis courts on the
school grounds for the school children, and, properly supervised they
will be a distinct asset to the local
scholars. We have been given to understand that the courts are going to
be closed every afternoon at 4 o'clock
and If that Is so, we are of the opinion that the-courts will not be able
to serve the purpose for which they
are Intended. The children usually
finish Bchool around three o'clock and
with the courtB closing at 4 we wonder how many chlldre can get In
games in such a short space of time.
It Is to be hoped that a later hour
will be set for the closing of the
courts, thus giving the children a
chance to gel acquainted with the
noble game.
The courts are situated within a
stone's throw of the Cumberland
United Football Club's ground and ln
the past, especially when the buildings thereon were new, we saw the
depredations of the hooligan gang of
Cumberland. Are the, tennis courts
to suffer the same treatment?

CLIFFE K.O.'s DEMPSEY
IN THIRD ROUND AT
TACOMA LAST NIGHT
Roy Cliffe left no doubt In the
minds of fight fans and referees ln
last night's fight at Tacoma when he
knocked out Young Jack Dempsey lu
the third round of a scheduled six-
round bout. Up to the time of going
to press no other details have been
received as to how the first two canto's went with the local boy. Young
Jack Dempsey has the reputation of
oelng one of the hardest hitters In
the light-heavy class and with his
defeat only Ernie Owens stands in
the way of Roy holding the light
heavyweight championship of the
Pacific Coast. Seattle papers claimed
before the fight that if Cliffe could
knock out Dempsey It would be fairly
good proof that Roy got a raw deal
in the last two fights tn which he
lost the decisions.
There Is a possibility of Cliffe meeting Fox, of Stettler, Alta., who k.o'd.
Reddick a few weeks ago and who
now holds the Canadian light-heavy
title. If Roy's manager can arrange j
this fight It will most likely take
place ln Vancouver and In the near
future.

Sudden Death Of
Mr. J   Bennie
Early Thursday
John Bennie, a resident of Cumberland and the Nanaimo district for
tbe past thirty-four years, died suddenly Thursday morning after an illness lasting only a few hours. The
deceased followed his usual occupation of fire-boss In No. 4 Mine on
Wednesday and seemed In the best of
health when he retired at 10:30 that
evening. Boon afterward one of the
boys found him lying on the bedroom
floor in an unconscious condition.
He had taken a stroke and never re
gained consciousness, death coming
at three in the morning of Thursday.
He was an esteemed member of
tbe Knights of Pythias, the Independent Order of Oddfellows, and the
local Masonic lodge. He leaves to
mourn his loss a widow, five sons and
one daughter, Mrs. Harold Peters, of
Union Bay. Mr. Bennle's father ls
yet alive, residing In the Cedar district near Nanaimo. His mother died
only last year. Four brothers and
four sisters are also living on the
Island and elsewhere In B. C.
The late Mr. John Bennle was in
his 63rd year and was highly respected by all who had the privilege
of his acquaintance. The funeral will
be held from the family residence,
Detwent Avenue, on Sunday at 2:30
p.m. The Masonic Lodge will have
eharge.

FOOTBALL PLAYER
Soccer fans will be sorry to hear
that Fred Foster, Cumberland's left
full back, Is playing his last game for
the blue and whites on Saturday In
the final for the Brackman-Ker cup at
Nanaimo.
Foster has a large farm north of
Drumheller, Alta., and the exceptionally fine weather prevalent on the
prairies at present has hastened the
decision of Foster to leave a little
earlier than he Intended. He wlll not
return to Cumberland after the gamo
tomorrow, but wlll continue his Journ
ey Just as Boon as he can get out of
Nanaimo. The many friends of the
popular full back on Vancouver Island
will be sorry to see him go; one and
all, are, however extending to him
the very beet of luck In his farming
activities.
King Lear and Jesse James may
have loved their horses in the same
sense that a bank robber loves bis
fast car, but for sheer adoration of
the steeds there is no one who has
ever exhibited a more ardent love
for the animals than Jack Holt.
In tbe Holt stables are seven ponies. Six of them are polo ponies, the
seventh ls a jumping horse. Red
Chief Is ono of the string. He played
tho chief supporting role for Jack
In the Paramount production, "Wild
Horse Mesa", working throughout the
picture with the star.
None of the other horses in the
Holt string has appeared before the
camera. They are the small polo
type of ponies, and as the casting directors would say, they haven't the
"stage presence."
Holt is starring In " The Ancient
Highway" which ls -showing at the
Ilo-llo Theatre tonight and tomorrow
night.
TO TALK ON BIBLE
The Rev. Nelson Harkness, of Vancouver, aecretury ot the Canadian
Branch of the British and Foreign
Bible Society, will speak In Orace
United Church this evening at 8:00
o'clock, taking as his subject "The
Romance of the Publication and Distribution of the Bible."
The prediction that the play entitled "Clubbing a Husband," presented by the Ladies Aid of Grace United
Church on Wednesday evening, would
"keep the audience rocking with gales
of explosive laughter" was no mere
exaggeration, for from the beginning
to the final curtain the audience, taxing the church to its utmost capacity,
was captivated by the excellent manner ln which the performers impersonated the various characters and
reproduced the scenes enacted ln the
play. A more enthusiastic and responsive gathering it would be difficult to imagine . So realistic were
the representations-and admirable the
portrayals that every member of tho
cast forgot herself aud sustained the
assumed character with intensity of
feeling, entering sympathetically into
the imminent but averted domestic
tragedy.
It would be hard to single out any
one member of the cast for premier
honors for they were all intent on
familiarizing    themselves    with    thc
modern method of "clubbing a husband, " and In their attempt reflected
great credit upon    themselves    and
Mrs. J. R. Butler, who supervised the
training.   Their aim was to give an
evening of wholesome entertainment
and judging by the tremeudous applause and peal after peal of laughter  which  greeted   the   wit,   humor,
comedy and amusing situations, tbey
succeeded tn their purpose.
Story of (he Piny
The visit of Mrs. Henrietta Ashton
of Boston, and her blg-llttle daughter
Maud,  to  her   newly-married  sister,
Mrs. Blanche    Newman, of u small
village,    being    opportunely    timed
with the very first appearance ot In-
harmony in the bride's wedded bliss,
threatens to work disaster in all the
domestic affairs of the neighborhood.
Ten different women air their troubles and at the instigation    of    Mrs.
Ashton, with" her suffragette theories,
decide to club together under the independent slogan "Down    with    the
Men."   Mrs.  Newman's  colored cook
and her Irish wash lady, Bridget O'
Flanagan, contribute their shares to
the general disturbance, and Dr. Jordan, the "doctor-lady"  is  mo3t emphatic In her declaration of feminine
independence.
Meeting at the olllce of Dr. Jordan
for-final organization, however, the
rumor of one husband's sudden Illness strlkos terror to every one, who
beneath the surface Is really loyal to
the earlier ideas of wifehood and of
motherhood; while two letters, one
commanding Mrs. Ashton's Immediate
return to her husband, and the other
proposing marriage to the man-hating Dr. Jordan, break up the whole
affair in wonderfully short order, and
all unite In declaring that "when
you're tired and hungry, or want your
husband, the home's the best thing.''

months married—Mrs. C. O'Brien.

Local Veterans
Hear Sir P. Lake
On Organisation
FRATERNAL ORDER OF
EAGLES WILL OPEN
NEW HOME APRIL G
Upwards of fifty veterans were In
attendance at the G. W. V. Hall on
Thursday evening to greet Sir Percy
Lake, K.C.B., K.C.M.G. Mr. George
O'Brien occupied the chair and In a
few words outlined the attempts that
had been made locally to organize,
and keep together the veterans of the I
Great War resident ln this district.
The reason of thc visit of Sir Percy,
he said, was to give them some Idea
of the work of tlie British Empire
Service league and If possible to try
to form a branch here of the Canadian Legion of the British Empire Service League. Mr. O'Brien then introduced Sir Percy, the distinguished
visitor losing no time In getting al
the pith of his address.
He told of the efforts of different
soldier organizations to get just
grievances before tbe proper authorities and of the failure of them in
many Instances owing to the divergent views placed before the powers
that be. The intention was, he said,
in Canada, to form a Canadian Legion
to be affiliated with the British Empire Service league, a true unified
body of ex-service men and women
working for the good of all ex-service men and women and not for the
gain of individuals. He cited lots of
instances where the British Service
League had done and are still doing
magnificent work for returned men
in the way of getting the ex-service
men, where necessary, suitable employment; men, who through services
rendered to King and Country were
not ina condition to compete In the
labor market.
Having another meeting to address
at Courtenay, Sir Percy said he would
not take up too much of their time,
but he hoped and trusted that the
local ex-service men would see their
way clear to come Into the new organization "solid." He would, he
said, leave some literature with the
secretary, so that the local men could
peruse at their leisure the aims and
objects of the organization proposed.
The chairman then asked If any of
the comrades present desl.ed to ask
Sir Percy anything that was not quite
clear to them. Two or three questions were fired at the speaker of the
evening who answered them in a very
lucid manner.
Lieutenant-Col. .Villiers, on being
called on by the chairman to say a
few words, gave a very clear des-!
cription ot the trials and doubles
of organizing or helping to organise
the -ex-service men during his stay
in South Africa. The same conditions existed there and in the old
country as in Canada, and unless the
ex-service men did organize they
could not hope to go very far iu assisting to bring to their more fortunate comrades that measure of relief and kindly assistance so accessary to one who was not qualified
through injuries received whilst serving his country to look out for himself. He was, he said, heartily In
favor of the organization, and would
personally give all the help he pos-
sllily could to see the local ex-service
men ln one big organization.
lt was proposed and seconded that
this meeting go on record as being
in   favor  of organizing  and joining
such a service league as outlined by
Sir Percy.   On the motion being put,
every man ln the hall rose as being
In favor, and It Is very likely that a
' meeting wlll be called for that pur-
| pose in the next few days.
j     Lieut.-Col.   Villiers   then   proposed
j it vory hearty vote of thanks to Sir
| IVrey Lake for his kindness In com-
' Ing to Cumberland and giving them
! so  much   valuable   Information   und
smoothing the way for them to get
a branch going locally.
The Duncan Thompson property on
Dunsmuir Avenue, Cumberland, purchased by the local aerie of tlie
Fraternal Order of Eagles, ls gradually being put Into shape to suit the
needs of the lodge. Partitions have
been taken out and a large lodge
room created out of a number of
small bedrooms. AH the work has
been done by the members of the
I lodge and it certainly speaks well for
' the very fine community spirit shown
—all working together for the good
of the lodge, wltliout thought of remuneration.
The lodge room is situated upstairs
and lias the usual outside and Inside
waiting rooms. Downstairs, we understand; the rooms will be used for
reading and writing and card rooms.
The small piece of land on the side
of the building will be turned Into
two pitches—one for Quoits and thc
other for the Italian game of Boccle.
If present plans mature, lt Is e;
peeled that a celebration will be held
on the Uth of April In the new home
when  It  will  be officially    declared
open.
Presentation To
Rev. Hood On
Eve Of Departure
A stag party consisting of about
forty or more gentlemen met at the
home of Mr. D. R. MacDonald on
Tuesday night at 8:30 to do honor to
Rev. James Hood who wlll be soon
leaving this district.
A goodly portion of those present
were adherents and members of St.
George's United Church, while there
were_others who were just admirers
of the genial pastor.
A splendid programme of songs and
story, got up by Dr. Hicks and some
members of the Board ot Management
of the Church, made the evening a
very pleasant one, some ot those who
took  part  being "Mr. Piifftnam,  who
presided at the piano, while the foi-
lowing sang: Messrs. Ramsell. Good-
all, .Edwards, and Hicks.   Mr. Jackson  also  contributed   in   usual  good
Stylo.     The   biggest   story   teller   of
parly  wus R.  Strachan.  who upheld
his end of the programme by a re
heuri-.il  of some  very  witty stories.
He was In real good fettle und was a
host   In  himself.   Dr.   MacNaughton.
whom   many  know  as  a good story
teller, did ample justice to his talent
and displayed his wares in that way
in  a  really  remarkable maner.   Mr.
T. Graham lias a fund of stories, all
of them very new nnd were apreci-
ated to thc full, while others who sll
at the feet of those above and who
one  day  may  learn  lo  tell  a story
were Sutherland, Taylor, Ledlngham.
Edwards, Hood, and Curwen.
Brackman-Ker Cup
Final Tomorrow
At Hub City
The re-played Bruckman-Ker cup
final will take place at the Central
Sports Ground, Xaiiaimo, tomorrow,
when the local team will try once
more to demonstrate to the Hub city
boys that their last win was no fluke. .
It is extremely hard lines on the
Cumberland team that they have to
fight this battle all over again after
clearly demonstrating that they were
a much superior uggrcgnllon. JJ'liere
Is not the slightest doubt that the
Nunnimo executive wits peeved about
being defeated—it was different with
tlie players. They dug up a paltry
excuse for a protest and made lt
stick. However, it Is no use going
over all that ground again, but when
one executive starts digging up protests over practically nothing at all,
they should not get at all upset If
another executive starts digging up
protests.
Thc locals will go down tomorrow
full of determination to retain the
Brackmun-Kei- cup aud the team will
be chosen from the following: Orr,
Walker, .Mortimer, Foster, Monaghan,
Ferguson, Brake, Fowler, McDonald,
Deluee, Plump, Gough and Hitchens.
PRIZE OF $10 TO BE GIVEN
A big holiday dance wlll be held
at the Imperial Pavilion, Royston,
on Easier Monday, April 5th. The
Novelty Five Orchestra, of Nanaimo,
will be In attendance, Thomas J.
Allen as leader, with expert banjo
player added. $10.00 prize for best
Charleston exhibition, and If more
than eight entries a second prize of
$5.00 will be given. Judged by applause. 13-14

FRIDAY, .MARCH 26, 1926.
CHECKER We I'ound a retail merchant sit-
PLAYERS ting in the back of his stove last
Monday morning doing absolutely
nothing but worrying. "I'd be ashamed to tell
vou what 1 have taken in this month," he said.
*So he just sat back by the stove and waited for
spring.' He had done almost no business since
Christmas, because he had not turned a hand to
get business. It was the dull season, so he
wasted his time playing checkers with a few
other loafers and—waited for spring.
No wonder he wasn't doing any business. No
wonder his Christmas profits had long since disappeared and his bank balance had been wiped
out. The man was afraid to go out after Im. i-
ness simplv because it was the dull season- ami
he thought he had to wait for spring.. So for
ten weeks he sat idle and let his overhead eat
up the surplus he had made during the holidays.
How many of the successes of the business
world do you imagine would have succeeded or
that policy? The test of a man or a businc*.■*.-
comes not when things are moving along smoothly, but when storms break and the dull Bsasons
are at hand. Look at the big telephone and
telegraph and electric power companies. When
the winter sleet and the summer's cyclone breaks
clown their wires they work the hardest to reestablish service. They never pull in their horns
during temporary depressions, but press steadily
forward with the costly developments necessary
to prepare them to cope with community progress
and expansion when prosperity comes.
John D. Rockefeller built up the Standard Oil
Company on his faith in the future of the oil
industry, at times when others became alarmed
and were anxious to sell out. Andrew Carnegie
did exactly the same thing; in the early turbulent
days of the iron and steel industry, partner after
partner lost heart and gladly turned over their
interest to the courageous little Scotchman.
While the retail dealer mentioned above sat
afraid and downhearted in the back of his store
—waiting for spring—the managers and buyers
of chain stores that are crowding so many individual stores to the wall, were ridding their shelves
of left-over winter goods by well advertised clearance sales and laying in the stock for the spring
season and securing an added profit by discounting their bills for cash. The successful man
has courage; the unsuccessful man has not.
The moral of this is that you will never build
up your business playing checkers by the stove
and' simply waiting for a change of season, and
you've got to have courage and use your head
to make a quick turnover of your stock to keep
from getting caught with a lot of unseasonable
and out-of-date merchandise. The simplest and
best way to do this is to cut the price and advertise. The big fellows know this—that's why
they are big.
TALK TO       Did you ever talk to that fellow
YOURSELF    who looks at you as you stand before the mirror shaving, or that
girl that frowns at you as you stand before the
glass doing up your hair?     Take a few minutes
oil' some day and have a heart to heart talk with
your reflection.   Take a long look into your own
| eyes.    Note the wrinkles that are creeping into
| the corners of your mouth'and ask yourself what
! is putting them there.
Most of us are exceedingly lenient critics of
ourselves.     We rarely underestimate our own
! wisdom, cleverness or personal attractions, and
| as to our mVal qualities we generally consider
' them well up to the average.     We may be con-
' scions of having committed acts which we would
severely condemn in others, but then there are
plways   peculiarly   mitigating  circumstances  in
lour own cases.     It is astonishing how we view
'our derelictions from duty, how easily we pass
the   buck.     Surely   no   one  else   was   ever  so
I .ugly  tempted,  or  we  may  go  further and
throw the blame entirely on some other one.
"Take a good long look at that face in the
1 mirror.     Put aside all vanity and egotism and
on your honor ask yourself if you really are what
most of your friends think you are.     No alibis,
no passing the buck, no mistaken sympathy with
yourself.     This is a good exercise and should
Ibe taken frequently.     A long look into your soul
' may do you good.
NASTY-NICE We heard a lady say the other
day, "Oh, I just can't bear Mrs.
K—. She's always so nasty-nice." Yes, women
are funny. They come into your home to listen
to some special feature over the radio and then
they tall: all the time that feature is coming in.
They will lambast their dearest friends and then
turn 'round and cry over them. They will work
all morning baking a cake for the church market
and then go and buy it back again. A man
would just give the dollar and a half in the first
place and save all the time and trouble.
But being "nasty-nice" is distinctly a woman's
privilege.     Men  cuss  and  swear  and  tell  the
other fellow bluntly to go to the hot place.   But
the ladies, bless 'em, will smile and murder while
they smile.     They seem to enjoy hurting each
, other.     Of course,  we don't  believe  our fair
readers will pay any attention to this bit of ad-
l vice; in fact we know they won't, but it really
would save them a lot of red noses and tear-
Istained eyes if they would not mind the little
insults or injuries from their friends who con-
! sider it their privilege to be nasty-nice.   Remem-
; ber it requires a constant grip on your temper
i and a lot of tact to always avoid hurting the
| feelings of others.     We all talk too much.   We
j all hear too much, and most of us actually listen
i for trouble.     But there is nothing just .quite

into effect on April 1 after having
been suspended aince 1910, Hon. T.
D. Pattullo, Minister of Lands, announced Wednesday.
For the lost sixteen years a local
syndicate has controlled extensive
Campbell River water rights with a
view to utilizing them for Industrial
purposes. These privileges will be
cancelled at the end of March after
numerous extensions from year to
year. This will free Campbell River
for use by any company with the
necessary financial qualifications
and will not prevent the local syndicate from going ahead with development nt any time.
Mr. Pattullo explained that his department considered It Inadvisable to
allow valuable water powers to be
held by any company for a long
period without utilization. Such restrictions, lie snld, might prevent
other capitalists from undertaking
actual development.
Campbell River ls considered of
immense value for waterpower purposes as it is contiguous to enormous
resources of timber and pulpwood
material. Eventually lt will be harnessed to operate a large pulp anil
paper mill, industrialists expect.
