CUMBERLAND, BRITISH COLUMBIA. SATURDAY, AUGUST 13, 1921.
SUBSCRIPTION PRICE: TWO DOLLARS PER ANNUM.
Waterworks Company Meets
Council But Nothing Settled
Directors Attended Special Meeting Monday Night Unprepared
To Discuss Question of Selling Waterworks to City—Clinton
Says They Cannot Set Price Until Next March—Promise New
Proposal on Hydrant Charges by Monday Next.
A special meeting of the City Coun
cil wus held ou Monday evening to
meet the directors ot the Cumberland
and Union Waterworks Co. Ltd. in
connection with the selling of the company's business to the city and also
with regard to the charge uf $35 per
lire hydraut by the company. Mayor
MacDonald was iu the chair aud there
were also present City clerk Mordy,
Aldermen T. Bannerman, J. C. Browii,
C. J. Parnham aud D. Thomson. Aid.
F. Pickard was also present but he
decided to lake a Beat with the
directors, of which he is one.
The Waterworks Company was represented by Mr. O. Vi. Cliuton, managing-director, and Messrs. Johu Thorn-
sou, R. Shaw, K. Robertson aud F.
Pickard.
Mayor MacDonald, iu calling the
meeting to order, said the purpose ol
It was to meet the Electric Light aud
Waterworks Companies to find out
what arrangements could be made,
aud whether the city could buy them
out.
Directors Sot Prepared to Discuss Sale
ol' Waterworks Company.
Mr. Clinton said the directors had
come there for the jiurpose of discussing tbe sum the company was
charging the city for hydraut water.
They had not come there, he said, to.
discuss the disposal of the Waterworks Company, and as a matter of
fact the question of selling the business had never been discussed by the
directors. He asked that the letter ol
a few days previous from the city
clerk calling the meeting he read, in
which the questiou of dealing with the
hydraut charges only had been made.
The directors evidently were takiug
advantage of this phase of the communication, and ignored the first request of the couucil to state at what
price they were prepared to sell the
uusiuess to the city. Mr. Clinton took
the stand that the council had askeu
the company to meet them, but this
the mayor denied, as in a recent letter
to the council the compauy had offered to meet aud discuss the matter, aud
ou that uuderstaudiug they were there
to meet the directors, said the mayor.
His worship said the busiuess relations with tne company had always
been very amiable uutil the city
assessed the mains of the company as
provided iu the Municipal Act. They
were assessed at $1 a foot according
to law, aud the council could nol
change the law. The company now-
wanted revenge, and were taxing the
city $35 a year for each hydrant.
Mr. Clinton: "No, not revenge."
In the discussion Mr. Cliuton said
the Electric Light Co. was not represented there that evening, and furthermore no communication had been received asking them to set a price, and
the question had never been discussed
by them. He said he had seen the report iu the Islander saying the council was taking this action, and presumed it was correct, but he had
never received an ollicial request.
Aid. Parnham said the first communication sent to the Waterworks
Company asking them to name a price
had never been replied to. As a ratepayer he would like to see the city
buy both the Waterworks aud Electric
Lighting Companies. He said the city
could not pay the $500 for hydrants
anyway this year, as the tax rate had
been set and the revenue was all provided for. Owing to the closing of
the saloons the city had lost considerable revenue from those licences, and
he was sure the ratepayers would vote
down a bylaw for increased taxation.
He thought it the best thiug for the
city to purchase both the Waterworks
and Electric Light Companies.
Wants Agreement Produced.
Aid. Bannerman asked for the agreement to be produced, if there was one.
which he had been assured there was,
and tliat It provided for free water
for fire purposes.
Mr. Clinton doubted if any agreement ever, had been entered into. As
a matter of fact tlie Waterworks Company was formed before the city was
incorporated.
On request of Mr. Clinton the city
clerk read some replies received from
municipalities in reference to charges
for hydrants.
Company Pays $1640 Jn Tuxes.
Aid. Brown asked the amount of
revenue received by the council from
the company, to which Mr. Clinton replied that it amounted to $430. which
included the $70 "discriminatory"
licence fee. In comparison to the fee
paid hy other businesses he considered
the amount charged the Waterworks
Company was unfair.
Thts year the Waterworks Company
had paid out $1649.12 for taxes, said
Mr. Clinton.  '
The speaker said he wanted to disabuse the minds of the council that
the company was hostile to the city.
They were willing at all times to do
what was fair.
Mayor: "If the city had not assessed
the company according to law you
would not have charged us?"
Mr. Clinton: "That is so. We didn't
know anything ahout hydrant charges
at that time. We were willing to meet
you at one time and come to some
agreement; we would have charged

for a treat on Sunday, when the local
seniors are due to play a game with
tlie Asahis Tigers, the speedy Japanese team from Vancouver.
The Nipponese boys are recognized

which has been one of the main factors in getting them Into the Terminal
League finals iu Vancouver, which
they expect to win.
Team Visiting Japan.
Their games with Cumberland and
Courtenay this week-end will be about
the last in the m-ovince this season,
as they are due to leave on a tour

LOVELY CHILDREN'S
PARTY AT ROYSTON
On Wednesday afternoon about 40
children gathered at the camp of
Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Bate, near Gartley
Point, at a party given by the Misses
Marvel aud Shirley Bate.
Being situated on the seashore the
camp lent itself admirably to the occasion, and no pains were spared to
make the outing a very delightful one
for those participating. The grounds
were decorated wilh numerous flags,
gaily decorated with numerous flags,
balloons, lanterns, festoons and evergreens, tlie effect being charming, the
seascape adding to the picturesque-
ness.
Races and games of all kinds were
indulged tn by the children, prizes being provided tor the winners.
Refreshment in abundance were
on hand, to which the little visitors
did full justice. Altogether they had
.1 delightful time and were sorry when
the time to go home.
TENNIS TOURNAMENT
BEGINS NEXT WEEK
The Comox Tennis Club was unable
to meet the Cumberland players last
Wednesday, as announced, in a
friendly challenge tournament, but
the series will be started on Wednesday afternoon on the local courts.
Local players are practising hard
for the event, and quite anticipate
ihowing the visitors a thing or two.

man Wins. Big Race
Collision Results In
Series Of Charges
Prosecution   Failed   to   Prove
Charges and Only Minor
Offence Sustained.
As the result of a collision between
two Fords, driven hy Mr. J. D. Wlnningham and Mr. J?.mes E. Taylor,
the latter was arrested late last Friday
night by City Constable Cairns, who
caused the following charges to be
laid agaiust Mr. Taylor:
Assault on Mr. Wlnningham;
Common assault on Constable
Cairns;
Being Intoxicated contrary to the
new Liquor Act;
Driving an automobile while Intoxicated, contrary to the Motor Act.
Mr. Taylor secured the services of
Mr. P. P. Harrison, while the prosecution was^ represented by Mr. J. M.
Mitchell.'The charges came on tor
hearing before Magistrate Hames oil
Monday.
Counsel for the accused argued that
the prosecution had failed to show
that Mr. Taylor was intoxicated and
that therefore the charge under the
Motor Act should be dismissed without the necessity of the accused and
his witnesses being called upon.
Counsel for the prosecution endeavored to save tbe day by a very able
argument but without avail, and the
charge was thereupon dismissed. As
a result of this the charge under the
Liquor Act had to be withdrawn.
Mr. Wiuningham withdrew his
charge of assault, and Constable
Cairns did likewise, but laid a fresh
charge against Taylor of assaulting a
peace officer with intent to prevent
the lawful apprehension of himself.
TBis charge was eventually withdrawn
and the first charge of common assault
proceeded with. To this the accused
pleaded guilty and was fined $20 and
costs, which was promptly paid.
LIQUOR STORE BUT
NO LIQUOR IN SIGHT
Mr. Thomson,! the local liquor vendor, moved into his new store early
this week and is all fixed up. He has
a nice line of stationery and the necessary permits to supply patrons—but
no liquor. True, he has a supply of
beer for those who like that stuff, but
the real genu-wine "licker" is conspicuous by its absence. Counter,
shelves and necessary fixings are all
there, but tbe bright mirrors and the
indlspeusible foot-rail, which is a
necessity wheu taking a drink over
the bar, are not in evidence. If you
want to drink a cold-hearted government has decreed that you must take
the stuff away and drink it where no
one can see you—or its effects.
Bobby is a very optimistic person,
however, and fully expects a nice big
shipment of the roal dope in tonior-
how or the next day, or the day after,
maybe. Meantime Cumberland Is as
sober as a judge—an intoxicated person hasn't been seen at large since
.Moderation came into force. It was
different under Prohibition!
COURTENAY BALL TEAM
SURPRISED FANS WHEN
THEY BEAT LEADERS
Cumberland won another football
championship last Saturday when
Alex Rowan's Cumberland Five went
out and beat the best ln B. C. ln decisive style, playing four games without losing* a point. St. Andrews, the
Longshoremen, Kitsilano and Kitsilano Rangers went down to defeat be-
'orc the local hoys.
The victorious team was composed
of Bannerman, Conti, Home. Hunden
and Wilkinson.
The A. S. Matthews Co. cup and five
gold medals now resting lu Mr. T.
Rickson's window' are emblematical
of the championship and huve to be
defended every year. It says much
for the boys when they have made this
trip twice at their own expense, and
Cumberland folks should appreciate
their efforts.
That versatile athlete, D. Banner-
man, also a member of the football
five, won the 100 yards handicap easily
from a field of twenty-five, and after
playing four games of football went
out and made 38 feet 8 Inches in the
hop. step and jump.
Altogether Cumberland did well at
the Caledonian Sports, bringing home
three prizes out of Ihe biggest sports
held in Canada. There were over 50
entries from the American licet, and
they got away with quite a few
prizes. Thirteen thousand people
witnessed the sports.
Cumberland's Five travel to Nanaimo Saturday for the football tournament there. Five silver cups are
the prizes, and Rowan says his boys
will bring home the bacon. Home.
Conti. Wilkinson. Bannerman and
Hunden will travel.
Contrary to general expectations
the Comox League leaders suffered
their first defeat when the Courtenay
ball team scored eight runs to their
two,on Sunday evening. This was
Cumberland's second game that day.
they having beaten the Alberni team
in the afternoon.
Cumberland had won all games in
which they had played ln the Twilight
League and local fans expected them
to continue the good work. However,
errors were chiefly responsible for
their undoing, enabling Courtenay tu
score freely.
The game should have been a shutout for both teams, as there was not
an earned run In the total scoring
The miners appeared over-anxious as
they could do nothing right when the
bail was batted towards them. The
two teams are so evenly balanced that
one or the other must make errors tu
win.
TENDERS CALLED FOR
CONSTRUCTION OF THE
SOLDIERS' DWELLINGS
Mrs. Pankhurst
On Social Hygiene
Large Gathering Hears Famous
Lady and Other Speakers—
Local Council Formed.
A very large ami representative
audience greeted Mrs, Paukhurst,Rev.
H. T. Ravenhlll, hon. treasurer, and
Rec. H. T. Archbold, general secretary,
when tbey opened their campaign here
to light the social evil. They have
been holding Introductory meetings at
various points on the Island, and intend to hold further meetings later to
extend the work.
The Island Couucil for Social Hygiene has been formed as part of the
Canadian National Council for combatting venereal diseases, and is working with the provincial government
department of health. A grant of
?1S00 has been made by the government to start the work.
Rev. James -Hood, who was chairman of tbe meeting, said lie regretted
the unavoidable absence of Dr. G. K.
MacNaughton. lit a few appropriate
remarks tlie chairman spoke of his
pleasure in knowledge of the work
now undertaken by the council. He
then called on Rev. H. T. Ravenhlll
to address the meeting.
Costs Province Enormous Sum.
Mr. Havenliill. after explaining the
objects of tlie council, appealed to the
citizens of Cumberland to get in behind the government and help light
this terrible scourge. Among the
drafted men in .Military District No. 11
there were from 10 to 15 per cent, infected with venereal diseases, and that
was about the usual proportion all
over Canada. Twenty-live per cent, of
the whole population w-as infected.
He called attention to Bulletin No. 1.
wliieh was distributed amongst the
audience, and quoted a few facts aud
figures from it.
The earning capacity of tlie individual was greatly decreased by these
diseases. During the years of childhood and youth a great deal of money
was spent before the age of earning
money could be reached, so that infected persons became a heavy loss
to the community. Iu our provincial
asylums there were 160 cases due to
these causes, and these cost the province $50,000. besides an equal loss
of $50,000 earning power, bringing the
total loss to ?liio.000. These cases
could have been cured at a total cost
of $8000 If taken in time. There were
60 little children at .Marpole due to
these diseases. So the taxpayer was
bearing a heavy burden which could
to a large extent have been obviated.
First Aid and Mine Rescue
Competitions on Labor Day
Teams From Washington and B. C. Mining Districts Expected to
Compete—Twelve Teams in First Aid and Eight in the Mine
Rescue Competitions—No. 1 Surface Team Working Hard to
Retain Coulson Cup Won Last Year.
CHILDREN'S SPORTS IN CONJUNCTION
In our advertising columns the City
Corporation is calling for tenders for
labor on the construction of six house:
to be erected under the Soldiers' Hous
ng Scheme, for which purpose $6000
hns been allotted to Vancouver.
Mr. W. A. Owen, architect, has sub*
mitted another plan and elevation of
a house laid out according to the
wishes of the men desiring the loans.
The bill of material for these houses
would run about $572, hardware and
material for drains, etc., would cost
another $50, so with the labor added
the cost will be in the neighborhood of
$1200.
These dwellings would not be complete inside but would be left to the
men to finish at their leisure, thus
lessening the initial cost.
Tenders close on the 25th of this
month, and it is intended to rush the
houses up and have them ready for
occupancy in short time.
The plan as submitted bv Mr. Owen
calls for a house 24 by 30 feet, containing a living-room 12.6 by 12 feet,
two bedrooms, one 10 by 12 and one
12 by 12 feet, a kitchen 12 by 12 feet,
and pantry, bathroom, hall and porch.
There will also be a 6-foot basement.
i - Free Treatment,
The provincial government has provided free clinics at Victoria and Vancouver, said Ihe speaker, where treatment could be had, and more would be
done to combat this evil if the people
would demand it. The innocent as
well as the guilty were liable to be-
ome infected; a drinking cup unwashed, a dinner plate not properly
cleaned, might cause infection. We
were all interested in the light and
these meeting:; were being held to
make the people realize it.
Mr. Ravenhlll then read a resolu-
ion to be transmitted to the provincial government department of health,
to the effect that the people of Cumberland present endorsed the work and
isked that more facilities be given in
the more remote parts of the Island
30 that free treatment could be given
it once where it was needed. He said
he had been assured by those in
mthority that if the people asked, the
government would use every means in
.heir power to give more help, and
irrangements would probably be madel
with doctors in the northern parts of
the Island to give free treatment to
■iuU'erers.
A bill passed "in l!*li> provided that
doctors notify in confidence by number, not by name, and keep a register
of all cases coining under their notice,
and all these must be cured or heavy
penalties were incuri ed. The whole
force of the citizens were needed to
enforce this. They should try to interest others.
Nukes Oreal Impression*
Mrs. Pankhurst was the next speaker, and made a great impression by
her manner and tlie way she handled
the subject. She referred tu her work
as a Poor Law guardian in England,
where she had at. 0 served as a school
trustee and a registrar of births and
death*. She iiad thus come into contact with the evils of venereal disease*.
This was not a class affair—rich and
poor were just as likely to become affected. Some people Bald this was^not
a subject for women to tackle, said
Mrs. Pankhurst, but it had been left
long enough to men. They meant
well, no doubt, but the road to a certain place was paved witli good intentions aud it must have a good solid
pavement by tliis time! It was a question for women supremely, said the
speaker.
A great many men had expressed tin
fear that if women got the suffrage,
the homes would suffer and children
would be' neglected; but there was
very little doubt tliat there would
never have been human homes InTt for
woman's desire and need for a settled
place in which to rear ancl care for
her children. Increased powers to
care for them would not cause neglect, and behind tlie "Woman's Movement." as it bail been called, were tho
facts that Mr. Ravenhill laid befor-
them that evening. The women knew
that this great scourge was what was
threatening their homes and children
N'ow .that the suffrage *■ as won, said
the speaker, we would meet together,
men and women,   and   discuss what
Cumberland Beat
Alberni Seniors
Local Team Played Brilliant and
Errorless Game, Whitewashing Visitors.
What was conceded to be the local
senior balltossers best performance
this season was staged on Sunday last
against the Alberni seniors, played on
(he Athletic Grounds. The home team
played a splendid game, and while they
only scored live runs they prevented
the visitors fioui the West Coast from
scoring at all. The score sheet shows
that they had no errors scored against
them.
Boyd was on the mond for Cumberland, and he struck out 14 of the
Alberni team, which wns*a creditable
performance and is more like his
form of two years ago. when the same
number of strike-outs was considered
l poor showing.
Miles of Alberni also pitched great
ball, striking out 12, and it was by no
means his fault tliat his team lost.
FIRE STARTED IN
CLOTHES CUPBOARD
A lire that might very easily have
demolished the building occurred at
the house owned and occupied by Mr.
Dowling, Maryport Avenue, on Saturday evening about S o'clock.
The family was out at the time, but
on returning home Mr. Dowling discovered smoke issuing from the rooms
upstairs. He immediatelly caused an
aiarm to be turned in and made an investigation, when it was discovered
that the lire was in a clothes closet
upstairs and had evidently been
smouldering for some time. The door
was shut, which kept the fire from
spreading rapidly.
..The- tire was coon got under control by the aid of a garden hose, but
not before over $200 damage had been
done by tire and water. The loss is
covered by insurance.
The tire department answered the
alarm in good time, but their services
were not required, as the tire was
out when they arrived.
The cause of the fire is not known,
but Mr. Dowling had changed his
clothes in this room earlier' in the
evening, at which time he was smok-
ng, and it may have originated in
that manner.
Labor Day. September 5. should be
a big day in Cumberland this year,
for the International Mine Rescue and
First Aid contests will be held here
on that day, on tlie Athletic Grounds.
These events are of very great Importance and create interest far be-
yond the borders of the province.
No less than twenty teams are expected to take part iu the competitions. In the first Aid work there will
probably be twelve teams, the main
prizes for which are the Coulson Cup
and tlie Mines Department Cup. The
Coulson Cup is now held by No. 4
Surface Team of Cumberland, and
they intend to exert their best efforts
to retain the honor.
There will also be 2-men and 1-man
events in First Aid work in addition
to the live-man events. These contests give greater scope for individual
work and efilciency.
Ulue Rescue Competitions.
For the Mine Rescue work, teams
are expected from Washington. Crows
Nest Pass and all mining districts on
the Island, including Extension, Ladysmith. Nanaimo. Granby and Cumberland. Eight teams at least should
take part, the chief prize for which
is the Vancouver Island Safety Association Shield, which is for international competition.
Mr. Dudley Michell of Edmonton
has been asked to act as judge In the
Mine Rescue contests.
Dr, Brydone-Jack. President of the
B. C. Branch of the St. John's Ambulance Asociation, will be the chief
judge in the First Aid Contests,
assisted by doctors from each of the
mining centres.
Teams are training hard for the
various events, and some keen competitions will be staged.
The annual meeting In connection
vith these events was held recently at
Vanaimo, at which Cumberland was
'epresented by Messrs. Jas. A. Quinn,
i. J. Taylor and Louis FranceBclnl.
CHILDREN'S SPORTS
The local employees of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd. Intend to give the children a treat on
Labor Day, the day before school reopens. Several hundred dollars wer«
left over from the recent employees'
picnic, and at a meeting held on Sunday it was decided to hold a picnic
for the children on Labor Day in conjunction with the above competitions.
That the children will have a good
time goes without saying, for the
miners certainly, know how to make
he childden happy.
Medical Fund

The annual meeting of the Canadian
Collier it-a (Dunsmuir) Ltd. Employees
Medical Fund will-ge held in the Lecture Hall of the Cumberland Literary

Mrs. Pankhurst had beeu speaking

standard. We must break down the
harriers of silence. These men had
not only made themselves unlit to go
to war--they were unfit to be the husbands of women and thc 'fathers of
children. Truly the sins of the fathers
were visited upon the heads of the
children unto the thrld and fourth
generations. This was absolutely and

Continuing. Mr. Clinton said that as
the council claimed they were not in
a position to pay the charge, the com
pany would hold another meeting to
take the matter up and would let the
council know their decision by .Monday
night.
Mayor Would Buy Both Companies.
Mayor MacDonald said he thought
It best that the city buy out both companies, to which Mr. Clinton replied
that the matter had never been discussed. They could not tell what the
company would want, because they
did not know its value.
Getting Nowhere.
Mr. Pickard said they were no further ahead than before the meeting
commenced.
Mr. J. Thomson said they had come
to nothing at all. If the city was pre
pared to buy out the company, the
best thing to do was to appoint a
committee to take the matter up with
the company.
Would Delay Question of (Selling Vntll
>cxt Year.
Mr. Clinton suggested the mayor and
one alderman be a committee to take
the matter up. The question had
never come up before the shareholders. No doubt they would sell—if the
price was good enough. The annual
meeting would be held in February
when notices would be sent to all
shareholders.
$490 (or Hydrants.
Aid. Brown would like to see some
different arrangement made. He un
derstood the city received $435 from
the company, while the charge of $35
each on 14 hydrants amounted to $490
which was more than the council received. The hydrants were a benefit
to the company as well as to the citi
zens.
Mr. Clinton said thc pipes were un
derground and the company had no
property to be damaged by fire.
Aid. Bannerman said that if the
houses were burnt down the revenue
from the pipes would be destroyed.
Cumberland was supposed to have one
of the best Ore departments In the
province, but it was no good without
water. It was necessary for them all
to work together and do what was
best for all.
Last year the company spent $9000
raising the dam, owing to the water
getting low. They were trying to
keep abreast of the times for the citizens. The shareholders only got 3
per cent, last year, and at tliat they
had to borrow money from the bank
on which they paid 8 per cent.
Something (or Nothing.
Mr. Pickard said thc council had
had got to remember that the company-
had been a great benefit to the city.
Other cities had made private arrangements with the water companies. He
said he did not see anyone else supplying the city with anything for
nothing.
The mayor said the Waterworks had
privileges of the city ever since it
was incorporated. They must remember that the company had not been
charged one cent all that time. The
law allowing the cities to assess the
mains at $1 a foot was put through to
help   cities   who   were   in   financial
Mr. Thomson said the tax wns made
to enable cities that had already been
paying a hydrant tax to get some returns from the companies. The government gave them the power to get
back money by taxing the pipe lines.
He said the directors had to protect
the interests of the shareholders the
same as the aldermen did protect the
interests of the citizens. "If some of
you fellows think the Waterworks Co.
Is a snap, buy some shares aud see!"
said the ex-alderman.
Suggests Meters in Hydrants.
Aid. Parnham asked whether there
was anything to prevent tlie city from
putting meters in the hydrants and
paying for te water actually used
There were only two fires last year and
many of the hydrants were not used
at all.
Mr. Clinton reiterated his statement
that they could not fix a price as they
would have to consult with the shareholders first, and the annnual meeting would not be held until February
They could let the council have a reply some time In March. They could
not tell what the concern was worth
until the books were audited at tlie
end ot the fiscal year.
On the undertaking that the directors would have a meeting and give
their decision regarding the charges
they then withdrew, after thanking
the mayor.

POPULAR SUMMER TRIPS
TO EASTERN CANADA
Summer tourist fares, now In effect
on Canadian National Hallways, offer
the holiday traveller on exceptional
opportunity of seeing Canada's natural scenic beauty spots, vast prairie
territory and large progressive cities.
The journey to the East may be
made over the all-rail route on a
through train of solid steel equipment,
electrically lighted, and modern ln
every respect. This train traverses
the fertile Fraser Valley, along the
banks of the Fraser River, and continues along the banks of the Thomp-
1011 and North Thompson Rivers to
the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
The Rocky .Mountains are crossed
at lowest altitude, at tlie same time
affording the passenger unobstructed
dews of the highest mountain peaks
I including Mt. Robson, tho highest
peak in Canada, over 13,000 ft. elevation), deep valleys, canyons and rush-
ng rivers. The prairie district is
then traversed for some two thousand
uiles, continuing through tlie garden
district of Ontario and Quebec, until
he terminus in the great metropolis
of Montreal is reached, where convenient connection is made with trains
for the lower provinces and Eastern
tates.
As a variation the passenger may
enjoy the pleasures of a short ocean
voyage by using the palatial steamers
if the Grand Trunk Pacilic Railway,
between Vancouver and Prince Rupert, and view the wonders of the
scenic sea route through sheltered
waters. At Prince Rupert direct connection is made with trains for the
Bast
Another variation Is the beautiful
.vater trip from Port Arthur, Ontario,
to Sarnia, on the Northern Navigation
Co. steamers—a two-day trip on an
inland sea.
Diverse routes will lie accorded
lassengers at their option on either
,*olng or return journey.
Complete information can be obtained from E. Vi. Bickle, agent.
According to a directory census recently compiled, the population of
Greater Vancouver is estimated ai
222,618, exclusive of Orientals, who
are said to number at least 15.00H.
The estimated Increase during the
year past is slightly over 20,000. This
ranks the Pacific city as the fourth

A SHOCKING EXPOSURE
I'm not a modest man at all, my blush
Is rarely seen,
Where others get terrific knocks I always stay serene.
\ lovely actress   on   the   stage   sans
nearly all her duds,
Thrills me no more than if she were
a gunny sack of spuds.
Or when alluring maidens shows  a
calf or dimpled knee
And others have a spasm, It does not
a thing to me.
Yet when I met a lady fair and we
remained to speak,
A shudder shimmied up my spine, my
knees grew very weak;
I turned away my eyes because, she
did not know, the dear,
The wind has blown her tresses and
exposed her naked ear.

MEDICINE HAT FARMERS
RE-ENGAGE HATFIELD
MEDICINE HAT.—The farmers in
this district atili have faith in the
powers of Charles M. Hattield. the
rain-maker. The United Agricultural
Association has decided to engage
Hatfield's services for next year.
A new contract was agreed upon in
which three inches of rain are allowed
for natural precipitation during Mav,
June and July, 1922, and Hatfield will
receive $4000 an inch for every inch
over three Inches, up to six inches,
tlie maximum amount to be paid being
$12,000.
Doesn't Want Full Amount.
Although entitled to the maximum
of $S000 under his contract for this
year, the rainmaker said that in view
of the somewhat disappointing results
of this year's operations he would be
satisfied with $5500. He explained his
partial failure as being due to the fact
that the location chosen by the association at Chaprice Lake was unsuitable, owing to tlie prevailing northwest winds iu this district. Under his
new contract he will choose his own
site and is expected to locate seventy
miles northwest of this city.
By operating to the northwest Hatfield figures that the action of his
chemicals will cause the clouds to
discharge their contents in tho Medicine Hat district instead of drifting
Into Saskatchewan before unloading,
as was the case this year.
It's a strange world. In England
the people are crying for rain, and in
the States thousands are yelling for
beer.

George Washington, under whose

Paul's Cathedral, where many of
Britain's greatest sons are buried.
children were robbed of their hirtli-
right.
! nielli Sufferings Caused ■>.' Disease*
Mrs. Pankhurst belonged lo no
olass. she said. Sim bad friends in all
••lassos. She had mei people in palaces and prisons nnd police courts,
ami novor yet had sho found any human hfiiig who was mentally sound
and knew the difference between
right and wrong, who was so utterly bad and virions that he would
deliberately cause innocent children
to be born blind, or idiot, or deformed,
in the old days people knew very little
ahout these diseases; even doctors did
not know much about them until
lately. But now that people did know
quick murder would be moro excusable than allowing such suffering to
go on.
Some peoule said let it alone. What
always has been always must be. But
there was a cause for every human ilt
and most of our ills were preveulNile.
Iu some black spots ou this island
men were living away from all possibility of family life, and men were
suffering horribly from this evil. Mrs.
Pankhurst called on tlie meeting to
support the resolution calling Cor more
facilities for treatment and cure.
Wants .Hen tn ltnfse Munil Standard.
She. and mosl womeu of her day,
had been brought up to think it was
indelicate even to know that there
were women outcasts. But they could
not help knowing. The women must
ask the men to come up to their
standard. It was unthinkable for
women to come down to the lower
standard, which would mean the destruction of tlie race. If the men would
accept the higher standard, all these
evils wouiy disappear forever.
We had gre;it natural beauty in this
country and great natural resources;
If we could only have a race of
healthy and intelligent people, if we
could ensure that every child got its
birthright—a healthy mind in a healthy body, and a happy home and opportunities to become a good citizen.
One nf tlie Most Deadly Diseases of
the Present Day.
The chairmen then called on Rev.
H T. Archbold to address the meeting.
Mr. Archbold said he had had to deal
with the mental and moral aspect of
this work, other than tlie medical, and
he described the menial agony of
young boys and girls when tbey realized tbey had beeu trapped into this.
"Our first Hue of preservation is self-
education. Our second line of prevention is to find a method of attack."
There was an idea tbat venereal diseases was not a respectable subject to
be talked ahout, but people were beginning to dfscover some of tlie dreadful things which these diseases caused.
Sir William Osier ranked them as between the third and fourth most killing diseases of our day. Tbey affected young children before they were
born.
Ignorance Ctuise of Many Dniini'alls.
Tuberculosis used to be considered
incurable, ami many died because they
were expected to die. if one member
of a family became tubercular all the
others were expected to catch tbe
disease, aud very often they did. but
there was no need of it. Now it had
been discovered that. If taken in time,
tuberculosis could be cured. Conditions of home life, industrial conditions and sanitary conditions had to
be considered and put right if we were
to stamp cult these diseases. Social
and psychological conditions were behind the things which produced these
diseases, and tbat was our next line <>l
prevention. And the last one is: We
have got to look alter our young people. Not from vicioiisuess but from
ignorance, a great ninny of our young
people go wrong. It is a crime tn
leave children in Ignorance of the
fundamental facts of life.
We will answer our children's questions on almost any subject excepting
on this greatest power of all power-;
the Creator has given us, the power of
life-giving. We may think our child
ren will grow up withoui finding "in
these things, but they will not. It i-
nature's demand that these questions
should be answered, and we. as parents, are responsible for who shall
answer them, for answered they shall
be. If we parents thirl: this duty our
mental attitude is wrong. We Bhould
teach our children self-control and
develop iu them a strong moral character, We are going to try and break
forever te double moral standard ami
the wild oats theory, said the speaker.
The chairman then read the resolution which referred to the great ami
growing menace to our community.
and petitioned the provincial department of health for more facilities for
the treatment and cure of disease in
the more remote parts of tbe Island
The resolution ou being put to the
meeting was carried unanimously,
Local Council Formed.
At tbe conclusion of the discussion
it was decided to form a local council,
when the following persons weru
elected: Chairman, Or. (i. K. MacNaughton; treasurer. Or. K. H. Hicks;
secretary. Rev, W. Leversedge; Mr,

A vote of thanks tn the speaker
for their Instructive, truthful and
helpful addresses was moved by Dr
J. H. Gillespie and seconded by Or.

CAN CARRY IT ON YOUR HIP
One of the most interesting decisions handed down by
the bench In British Columbia wilh respect to the liquor
act, was that given by .Magistrate Jay in Victoria, when
he ruled that the man who bad legally purchased liquor
had a right to decant some of his supply and carry it on
his hip. He should not be expected to carry a demijohn
around with him if be purchased the strong stuff in a
receptacle, said tbe magistrate. Officials of the liquor
board say tliat tliis is ip keeping with their aim to allow
the fullest privileges of tbe law, as long as the strict
provisions of tbe act are  lived up to.
AN AMERICAN OPINION OF MEIGHEN
Premier Meighen challenges tbe admiration not only of
his own countrymen but of tbe English-speaking people
throughout the world. As a rule, United States newspapers
pay little attention lo Canadian politics, but the personality and career ot Canada's Prime Minister has excited
their interest and attention. In a recent editorial entitled
"Canada for the Canadians," the St. Louis Globe-Democrat
says:
"Premier Meighen is more jealous of Canadian rights
and more aggressive in promoting an autonomous Canadian status than any leader in the Dominion, and, for that
matter, any other British dependency, has ever been."
Other American observers have been struck no less than
the Globe-Democrat by the Canadianism of Mr. Meighen, a
Canadianism in no way inconsistent with loyalty to the
Empire. They point out that Canada has been the main

1 was here before you came, the ancient one remarked,
and giants of the forest grew where now the cars are
parked, and often, many years ago, upon this very street,
I've seen the bears and buffaloes and other insects meet.
Vou may have been around the world some forty times
since then, but I have stayed right in this town aud salted
down the yen. A corner lot in those old days was about
three hundred acres. We had no taxes, councils, cops or
other trouble makers. One good pair of overalls would
last for many a year, and when he wanted shoes or shirts
we went and shot a deer. We tanned its hide with the fur
Inside and at the end of all our labor, we'd ride a hundred
versts of so to call upon our neighbor. We had no daylight saving then, we rose up with the sun; we knew without the curfew bell when our day's work was done. A
man could take a little drink, provided he could get It,
and soak himself up to his chin, and wake up and forget II.
Where, once upon our city streets the deer were wont to
browse, the reindeer and the pleasant skunk, there's nothing now but cows, and motor cars and phonographs and
silly things like these; the shades of awnings now replace
the stately shade of trees. Gone is tlie friendly demijohn,
at least from public view, and you must buy a permit to
obtain a drink or two. So thus. I strike my tuneful lyre
an# make a verse upon It, and rant and swear and tear my
hair—but what's the use, doggone It.
—C. J. Bunbury, Cumberland, B.C.
FOREST FIRES
It Is an old adage that familiarity breeds contempt; but
it la necessary to ignore the possible truth ot the assertion
by a further reference to the need for caution in the
wooded areas of this Island during the dry summer months.
Neither patrol from the air nor constant surveillance from
terra firma can be turned to full advantage unless those
people who spend most of their time in the great out-of-
doors take more than usual precaution with camp fires
and lighted tobacco. Already this year no fewer than five
hundred and sixty-five fires have been reported to the
Forest Branch of the Department of Lands. What this
means In fighting cost and volume of material loss wlll be
readily understood. Fortunately so far this season the
Comox district has escaped any serious outbreak. By
the employment of the most simple means and the observance of proper care there should be neither danger from
the camp fire nor anything to mar the enjoyment of the
fragrant weed.
Thc Princess Cantacuzene, who was Julia Dent Grant
before her marriage, said recently at a Palm Beach dinner;
I once met Li Hung Chang at my grandmother's house.
The great Chinese statesman was at that time over 80
years old, but his mind was as charming and whimsical as
ever. My grandmother and he got into an argument as to
the relative merits of American and Chinese marriage customs, and Chung said, with twinkling eyes; 'Your young
people fall In love and then marry. Our young people
marry and then fall in love. It is like two kettles of water.
Yours, the American, is taken at the boiling point off the
fire by marriage and grows cooler and cooler, Our Chinese
kettle ls full ot cold water; marriage puts It on the fire and
it keeps getting warmer and warmer ever afterwards so
that,' and Chung chuckled, 'so that after 50 or CO years
we are madly In love with each other.'"—Argonaut.
The Toronto Globe is much alarmed at what happened
to the Liberals in Alberta. Like the man who was kicked
downstairs, it is almost convinced that tbey are not wanted.
THE FAWNS
Little children of nature, your mother Is dead,
For the hunter has found her his aim;
And long you will lie on your moss-covered bed
And wait for her coming in vain.
The cougar will scream ln the dead of the night,
When the wind Is a wail in the pine,
Then trembling you'll call for your mother In fright,
You'll call, but no answer is thine
Ah, long in the hush of your leaf-circled dome
You will wait for your mother's return,
While hunger will feed on your decllate flanks.
And thirst will your tender lips burn.
When the moon is as pale as the face of the dead,
And the hoot of the owl is a moan,
The many green paths where so often she led
You will timidly follow alone.
Sweet children of nature, so helpless, so mild,
Little friends of the shadow and glen—
Oh, had I the power to give what I took,
I'd return you your mother again.

He'll follow a man at play or work
If only thc man will lead.
Where are thc men to lead today,

Just as a man should do?
Village and slums are calling—come

Fill up the time a lot,

Country and home depend on you,

How can a lad know what to do
If there isn't a man to lead?
Where are the men to lend a hand?

Men who will rise In every land
Bridging the "Great Divide."

Joining each class and creed,
Here are the boys who would do right,
But where are the men to lead?

LADYSMITH UNABLE TO

Splendid Efficiency of Toronto
Scottish Enabled Them to
Win Dominion Title.
TORONTO.—The Toronto Scottish
won the Connaught Cup aud the
Championship of Canad here Saturday by defeating the Ladysmith team
by one goal to nothing, taking the
series, 4 to 0. The Ladysmith team,
except at brief intervals, failed to
bow the brilliant combination of the
previous game.
Tbe field was soaked by a heavy
rain early in the afternoon, and this
condition was expected to favor the
western team, but the Scottish team
worked with accustomed efficiency and
landed the bacon. Five thousand persons saw the game.

by shooting behind. Strang played a
wonderful game for his team, and hlo

WANT HIGHWAY TO CAPE
SCOTT CONSTRUCTED
VICTORIA.—Vancouver Island ls
fast becoming known throughout the
continent as the be*st place for motor
tourist travel during eight months of
(be year, directors of the Chamber of
Commerce stated during a discussion
of highway matters.
The directors endorsed the newly-
organized Canadian Highway Asso-
iatlon and decided to become affiliated with It. Mr. John L. Beckwith, its
first president, explained the objects
of the association, declaring that its
objective was the linking up ot the
roads connecting Glace Bay In Nova
Scotia with Cape Scott at the northern
tip of Vancouver Island.
Aid. A. E. Todd, who was described
as the "chief push" behind the Canadian Highway Association, declared
tbat it was not necessary to secure a
large membership to accomplish big
results. Enthusiasm among those who
were members was all that was essential.
Reeve Sam J. Drake, of Oak Bay,
who recently completed a motor tour
to the Eastern States and return, asserted that every available medium
should be used to bring publicity to
the motoring possibilities of British
Columbia. He pointed out that all
existing routes made It Impossible for
motorists to come to this province
from the East without making wide
detours. This condition led to tbe
impression that British Columbia was
inaccessible and, at any rate, oil' the
main line of transportation. Tourists
swung off to California, built up on
advertising. Instead of coming north
to British Columbia.
HAREWOOD MINE
OPENED UP AGAIN
The Harewood Mine, belonging to
the Western Fuel Corporation of Canada Ltd., was re-opened on Monday,
after being closed down since the early
part of the year owing to depression
in the coal trade.
Prespects for Bteady work In the
Nanaimo mines are said to be bright.
The company has secured several
good contracts, and in order to meet
the demand has not only to operate
Wakcslah, Reserve and No. 1 to full
capacity, but has also found It necessary to open up Harewood.
On Monday a force of men were put
to work re-opening Harewood, and
operations will be rushed as expeditiously as possible. It Is anticipated
that within three weeks' time Harewood will be employing upwards of
200 men.

Music and Photoplays
AMAZING  CONTRACT
DISCLOSED IN PICTURE
Queer Agreement Betwen Characters of Photoplay "What
Every Woman Knows"
Constituting part of the basic plot
of "What Every Woman Knows," Wm
DeMille's latest production for Paramount, which will be seen at the Hollo on Saturday, is one of the most
amazing bargains wliieh has evei
come to light either in truth or in fiction.
The story is laid in England and
Scotland aud a bargain is consummated between Alick Wylle an old
Scotchman, his two bachelor sons and
his quaint, prim daughter of twenty-
six on one sii.i.* and a young English
student with political ambitions on
the other.
The father and brothers have almost despaired of finding a husband
for the young woman because she is
unlike oilier women. Then comes a
poor young English student, who
steals through a window into the
Wylle, library late at night to study
the books. Tlie Wylies catch the
young "burglar." hear his explanation and then offer him three hundred
pounds with which to complete his
studies, if, in return he will agree that
ln five years the daughter shall marry
him if she so wishes.
The story is closed nnd then begins
a story which offers an altogether new-
angle on tlie matrimonial question.
Lois Wilson was chosen to play the
leading feminine role, and Conrad
Nagle enacts the young politician aud
student.
This is a delightful picturization by
a master producer of Sir James M.
Barrie's famous stage success in
which Maude Adams starred for several seasons.
De.Millc  Smashes All  Traditions.
William De.Mille has broken motion
picture traditions for perhaps the first
time in the history of the screen, by
making this production exactly like
the original, without change in theme.
plot or characters.
"This was done," says Mr. DeMIUe,
"not because it is always the best
policy to do so, but because, in the
case of Mr. Barrie's play, It was possible to follow absolutely the playwright's original and at tlie same time
achieve a perfect screen production,
in fact, iu this Instance, no changes
could have been made which would
uave improved the play for screen
purposes. The fact that Sir James*
play needed no changing whatever for
screen reproduction, speaks most
highly of it, as this is an acid test
whicli few plays have ever met, and,
so far as I can remember, la the first
to have passed tbe test."
ELSIE FERGUSON, STAR
Famous Actress Rises to Great
Heights in New Picture.
Admirers of Paramount pictures
need no introduction to the superb
art of Elsie Ferguson. In "Barbary
Sheep." "A Society Exile," "Lady
Rose's Daughter," and many other
screen classics, she has sounded a
high, clear note of dramatic achieve'
ment. Perhaps no actress has ever
excelled her in the portrayal of well-
bred, cultured women and their actions under the stres of high emotion.
In "Sacred and Profane Love" her
admirers will find Miss Ferguson at
the apogee of her art. The production presents her fresh from a six
months' trip around the world, refreshed, Invigorated and inspired by
her very comprehensive travels.
Her performance of the role of Car-
lotta Peel In the stage production of
"Sacred and Profane Love" in New
York during the season 1919-20 was
praised by critics and public alike.
The screen version of the play has
not suffered by reason of the adaptation, so that it Is reasonably certain
that in picture form the subject will
be one of the best in which this
charming actress has appeared with
in two years or more.
"Sacred and Profane Love" will be
shown at the Ilo-llo Theatre on Saturday, August 20.

"THE MONEYCHANGERS"
BY UPTON SINCLAIR
A Stirring Human Drama of the
Social World, Business and
The Underworld.
Behind tenement windows and tenderloin "joints"; behind the gaudy-
splendor of chop suey palaces and the
inscrutable stare of silent celestials
behind the furtive glance of the street
corner's slouching figure and the
brazen appraisal of the loitering
woman; behind the sinister, myster
lous night shadows of the swirling
Metropolis, smolder a life of Intrigue
which is but the visible expression of
the turmoil of the classes.
It Is but a step from the glitter of
Fifth Avenue, New York, to the glamor
of the underworld. The vices and
virtues of men and women are alike
in silks or ln soiled garments. A false
move, a shot from a darkened doorway, and the morning papers are
aflame with a sensational story In
volving influential citizens with deeds
of depravity.
0. Henry, who knew his "Bagdad
on the Subway," disclosed with colorful accuracy, bizarre adventure of the
mysterious underworld. What 0.
Henry was to literature, Upton Sinclair and Benjamin B. Hampton are
to motion pictures in producing this
amaging feature, "The Money-Chang-
ers," which paints in powerful colors
the highlights and shadows of the
mysterious metropolis. No lover of
life, no seeker of adventure should
miss its exquisite thrills and Its exciting, overwhelming climax. "The
Money-changers" will he presented at
the Ilo-llo Theatre on Thursday of
next week, ln conjunction with Harold
Lloyd's three-reel comedy, "Now
Never," making a splendid programme
for that evening.
HAROLD LLOYD, THE
MONARCH OF MIRTH
IN "NOW OR NEVER"
The Funmaker Turned Loose in
A Pullman Sleeper With No
Rservations on Laughter
In "Now or Never," the next and
greatest Harold Lloyd comedy, this
famous young comedian takes advantage of the funny situations which a
Pullman car affords. There are more
genuine laughs per reel In "Now or
Never" than any of his previous com
edies. It will be shown at the Ilo-llo
on Thursday next, ln conjunction with
Upton's Sinclair's Greatest photoplay,
"The Money Changers."
This comedy marks a new epoch in
the young man's interesting career.
It is his first picture under a new-
contract with Associated Exhibitors
that puts two hundred and fifty thousand dollars for each comedy In his
bank account. Also, it is his first
three-reel comedy. Three reels does
not mean that the laughs are spread
farther apart, but that there Is more
room in which to crowd them.
The Ilo-llo Theatre considers that
It Is doing a great public good In presenting "Now or Never" on its screen
next Thursday, for every laugh at
Lloyd makes health and happiness,
and it would take a funometer to record the laughs in "Now or Never."

I passed   through   a   forest  of
graceful trees,
Their broad branches swaying ln tlie
sofe summer breeze;
These giants of the forest, long had
they stood,
Kings in their real, and lovely wild-
wood.
Perhaps In the far distant past  they
had been
A haven of rest to the dusky red men,
And their little papooses had spent
many gay hours
Under these monarchs in   search   of
sweet flowers.
Perhaps some young warrior In their
presence had spoken
Of love to his maiden and gave as a
token
A spray of forget-me-nots which grew
'neath the shade
In the cool of the forest, where the
waterfalls played.
Oh, these trees had a history, I could
tell by their mien,
As proudly they flaunted their bright
robes of green,
But   the   story   they told me—their
hopes and their fears—
I cannot tell now on account of these
tears,
For   the woodsmen   have  come, and
the ring of their steel
Falls like a knell on the hearts that
can feel.

HERE IS UPTON SINCLAIR'S GREATEST PHOTOPLAY OF UNTOLD
MILLIONS AND THE LURE OF WOMEN!
THE   MONEY
CHANGERS
It is a Sweeping, Pulse-Beating Human Drama—Its Kaleidoscopic Action
Will Haunt You—Its Suspense Will Thrill and Grip You!
You've Bought Her Soul and Sold Your Own-
HE WAS THE BRAINS OF THE MONEY-CHANGERS—
He, a society Leader, bargained the lives of men and women for gold.
And now his fiancee knew all—
His traffic in the Chinese palace, as King of the Underworld.
The girl, weak for silks and jewels, whom he enticed into his snare
of poppy smoke.
The boy, from the slums with a prison past, who wanted to go
straight, whom he "framed" to do his will.
And the boy's sad-eyed mother whose heart he broke.
Now she knew why the reporter had cornered him as the "man
behind the ring."

laughter until you see this novel production.   Reel for reel—laugh for
laugh—"NOW OR NEVER" excels any comedy ever made.

ANCHORING SHIFTING
SANDS WITH TREES
An experiment will be made by the
Ontario Provincial Forester to test
whether the shitting sand dunes of
Prince Edward county can be anchored by the planting of belts of trees in
the sand areas. These sand banks,
under the influence of winds irom
Lake Ontario, have beeu moving inland, covering up fertile laud a and
rendering them useless. Tree planting bas stopped shifting sands in
France nnd other countries, and on
the prairies holts of trees keep light
soils from drifting. It is expected
that the plan will prove equally successful in thia Ontario county, one of
the most Fertile in that province,
