FORTY-FIFTH YEAR—No. 31.
Large Turnout At
Meeting Of A. W.
Neill Tuesday
COURTENAY, July 27.—The old
Agricultural Hall was filled to capacity on Tuesday night for the meeting
of the Independent candidate and sitting memher for Comox-Alberni, Mr.
A. W. Neill. The meeting marked the
opening of the election campaign in
the district. Shortly after the advertised time, the chair was taken by
Mr. VV. A. Urquhart, who called the
meeting to order, saying it was only
ten months since the last memorable
meeting held In the same hall.
On rliiing to speak, Mr. Neill received an ovation, and during hla address
which lasted two hours, the Interest
of his uudience never once flagged
He gave his hearers an inside stoiy
of the proceedings at Ottawa as seen
by himself and threw much light on
situations which the average newspaper reader would otherwise have
little chance of acquiring; in fact, his
speech included the political history
of the last parliamentary session.
Early in the evening he explained
how he hud ascertained from both
parties which ono would give the
largest measure of support to the
platform on which he was sent to
Ottawa. He hail found that the Liberals were willing to give by far the
more and lie frankly admitted that he
supported the late government on
every important question. The labor
and progressive members had done
the same thing, lie said, and had put
their actions on record In writing
The labor members had said that the
party getting their support would
hnve to pay for it by legislation.
In referring to the present talk of
stable government, the speaker
questioned, in fact, he denied that
this- could be brought about by
straight party lines as between conservatives and liberals. The groups,
he said, have come to stay. In making a rough forecast of the results of
the coming election Mr. Neil] could
not see that there was going to be
any big sweep as foretold by the conservatives. We had, he sold, been
told tbe same thing before the last
election, while he had given tbe
opinion that the progresives and independents would be fn a very strong
position. Their position, he said, had
been extraordinarily strong, his own
responsibility having seemed very
great at times.
He freely criticised both major
parties and ihelr leaders, and In discussing and explaining his work ln
conectlons with the proposed Old Age
Pensions Act, said he would not trust
either party, as either one would turn
down Ihe old age pensions flatly. In
bringing the Issue before the house,
he had worked with labor members,
hnd bargained with them, In order to
get their help. As in former years
he advised his constituents that the
only way to bring about the enactment of such a law is by pressure
from the people.
Among other matters touched on
was the situation created by the refusal ot dissolution to Mr. MacKenzie King and Ihe permission granted
to Hon Mr. Meighen by the Governor
General. He explained, his action regarding his support of the Australian
Treaty ond gave a general resume of
his stewardship at Ottawa.
In making mention of his opponent
Mr. D. R. Mat-Donnld. the speaker
sulci Ihat he had a very high opinion
of him. that he wus a good, clean
man, and he hud nothing lo say
against him. He offered not to bring J
uny outside speakers into Ihe cam-1
palgn if his opponent would agree lo
do the same.
He hud not been Isolated at Ottawa
as had been predicted, bul on the
oilier hand his vote had more In- j
lluence than any other two members. I
An Independent member, he snld, was
in reality far trom being Independent,
because, while not pledged to any
party, Is always pledged to principle.
Questions   were   Invited and none
being forthcoming .from    the    large
audience, the meeting came to a close i
with   the   singing   of "God Save tho
King." !

COURTENAY, July 23.—But for the
smart work of the Courtenay Fire
Department on Friday afternoon, one
of the larger homes ln the Orchard
district would undoubtedly have been
destroyed. Almost directly following
the blast of the electric alarm the
fire engine was Been speeding through
the olty. Looking towards the direction in which thc engine was going,
those from upstairs windows could
soo a mass of flames enveloping the
roof of the house occupied by Mr.
and Mrs. Wallace McPhee. The next
minute a sheet of water was covering
the flames, and the fire, which a few
minutes before had looked uncou-
querable was even now seen to be
in hand, and shortly after was completely extinguished, leaving a large
black hole in the roof. At the time
of the outbreak there was a strong
wind blowing from the south east,
which makes the work of the Fire
Department all the more creditable.
The dwelling overlooked the Puntledge River and is owned by Mr. Alex.
Urquhart, who recently had the house
completely renovated.

by Mr. A. MacKinnon, secretary of
the Board of Scliool Trustees. All
the pupils were successful, with the
exception of two in senior matric
(and they were granted partial standing), and the averages were quite
good. Geometry proved the stumbling block for nearly all those writing,
two pupils getting supplemental In
this subject, wliile the French grammar and translation and Latin composition were the subjects in wbclh
the highest marks were made
Following are the complete results,
with percentages appended:

This fine showing of the Cumberland pupils reflects great credit on
Principal Shenstone and his assistant, Miss P. Partridge.
Damage At Schools;
Offenders To Be
Prosecuted
Once more the Islander has been
asked to make an appeal to thc youth
of this city to refrain from their passion for destroying and ruining gardens antl certain structures belonging
in thc public This time thc Cumberland Schools have been the inoft'ensivo
objects of these attacks, Insomuch
that a considerable sum of money
will have to he expended lo repair
thc damage. It will cost iu thc
neighborhood of $75,110 to renew the
glass alone in several windows,
through which stones have been ruthlessly thrown and several dollars
more to cover lhe cost of Installing
these window  panes.
It is known that these depredations
nre Ihe work of a certain "gang" of
young boys and they are warned that
If caught they will not be dealt with
leniently. The parents of these children are as much to blame as anyone
for letting (heir sons "run wild," but
never seem lo make any attempt to
curb their so-called "fun." If these
parents would only stop to consider
that they have to help pay for such
damages as mentioned above there
would probably he no need tn call for
-'.-titchfulness on the part of the police.
In cases such as this, the old saying,
"spare thc rod and spoil the child"
is more than just more words.
The Canadian Collieries team, the
I champions of British Columbia, Al-
I berta and Saskatchewan in tlie Dom-
I Inlon football play-offs, is playing
I magnificent football lu its quest for
j tiro premier honors of the Dominion
] of Canada. Playing at Regina on
I Saturday last, the locals easily de-
j fented the Regina Post team, the
j classiest football aggregation ever got
! together In (Saskatchewan.    In   the
second game played on Monday last,
the Collieries team repeated Its win
ot' Saturday and earned the right to
meet United WestonS in the final, tho
first game of which  was played last
night and  resulted    In    a    scoreless
draw.   The second game takes place
tomorrow,  Saturday,  and  the  result
should be  known  in  Cumberland ut

should be received about six o'clock.

PUSH There is one thing, among many others,
that we do not like about the big city,
and that is the eternal push. Not the push that
achieves success, but the push that crowds you
off the sidewalk or beats you to a seat in the
crowded street car. If you want to see a mob
of two-legged hogs, if you want to see humanity
at its very worst, just watch the crowd getting
away from a baseball park or a race track. Most
of that mob are the swell city fellows who would
tell you the country and small town
If everyone was busy and thrifty, doing his
share to earn and save, the jails and the great
army of police would cease to be a tremendous
item of expense; the almhouses and their ever-
mounting bills could be withdrawn from the expense side of the ledger. If all the money now
wasted in caring for the lazy loafers could be put
to work in useful channels what an easy place in
which to live this old world would be.

Not on your life. That rule has nothing to do

THE COST
OF LOAFERS
We canot blame the manufacturer or the I
manufacturers of the cigarettes in taking advan- i
tage of that particular moment to attract the
attention of 6000 boys and girls and the multitude
of older people to his particular product. What
we need is to put the same resourcefulness into
the development of citizenship that we put into
advertising a commercial product. That sky
writer should have been employed by the committee in charge of the pageant to write a stirring slogan of patriotism instead of the name of
a cheap cigarette.
I protest that I malice no man under the sun.
Impossible I know it is to please all, seeing few
or none are so pleased with themselves, or so

seem diverse persons in one and the same day.

One of the greatest items of expense in the present-day system
of government is the slacker,
the lazy loafer who produces nothing and thus
shirks his share of bearing the public burden.
The schools are crowded with children of parents
who do not pay one cent of taxes. The jails are
filled with idle criminals who thus force the thrifty taxpayers to pay their board and keep. And
it is this class of hand-to-mouth, shiftless individuals who are always crying against men of
property. These parasites on the body politic
are the pests of the civilization of today.
Never in the history of the world have men
of means been so liberal, never have they done so
many good deeds with their dollars as they are
doing today. Great foundations are established
to fight disease, to promote civic welfare, to maintain institutions for the unfortunate and to give
children the advantages of an education.

"The Radio Detective"
CHAPTER XX1I1
THE  I.KAY HACER
Kennedy clung tenaciously to the
chase for the gray racer, with Easton
Evans using the railio compass. It
was ticklish anil minute work, sotting
up as every quarter after the hour
approached, waiting, then receiving
the messages that were being broadcast and the answers that came back
from the lair in which our enemies
were hiding.
Hut Easton was a genius on radio.
His calculations after each set-up
were  made   rapidly  and  we  lust  no
time getting under way again.
The afternoon waa moving right
along. The impulses which we knew
were coming from tlie lair of the gray
racer were every time getting stronger, which testilied to the result of our
painstaking care. We were getitng
•'warmer" as the children say In their
games.
It was past four o'clock when we
made a set-up of the direction-finder
after a particularly vexatious experience in keeping to the direction we
wanted by reason of the narrow one
way paths we had to follow.
Friday and Saturday, July 30 & 31
at the Gaiety Theatre, Courtenay
Friday and Saturday, August 6 & 7
at the Ilo-llo Theatre, Cumberland
"I hope this will be our last trial,"
remarked Kennedy who was himself
getting uneasy. "There's no telling
what may be happening in our absence. I trust Ken to keep out of
trouble.
Easton had raised his hand. The
Important period in the hour was approaching and we gathered about to
see what news the radio would bring,
as well as what correction we would
have to make ln the direction we were
following.
There's the Scooter. It must be
getting along down the Sound." Kennedy was getting eager to go In pursuit of this other end of the gang.
"Now!"
The message was coming i'MIut
clear. "ALL SET FOR FIVE 0'
CLOCK THIS AFTERNOON."
"What is at five?" I asked.
"8h! Now's the time. There'B the
gray racer gang answering." Easton
was adjusting finely, making his observations and notes ready for his
hasty calculation.
"There—I've got lt now—exact!
And the Impulses are strong. They
cannot he so far away."
The gray racer stopped sending and

the Interchange between thc sea and
the shore seemed to be over. Easton
completed his calculations and took
down the radio compass. We're getting closer. The impulses show It.
I think this will be our last set-up,
if we can only find the right road
and don't overplay the hole like a
golf shot that files too far."
"I hope so." I was worried over
tlle enigma contained ln that last
crypt message the Scooter sent to the
shore. "What is it that they are preparing?"
Kennedy shrugged. "We must get
them—then find out."
At last everything was ready and
we started out In the direction indicated, looking eagerly for a crossroad
or a bend In the road would give us
the correction we needed to make it
I exact.
There was no such road. They
must come Into their hiding pluce by
a back way, not the way in which the
crow Hies or the radio radiates.
There was  nothing else to do but
: try again over an .open field.
j    However,    this    was    one time in
| which taking a chance did not take
I us wrong.   Our car bumpeil over the
! clearing In second.   The clearing got
steadily harder to cross and at one
point where lt  was rapidly    getting
impossible and we were   almost   in
despair at the thought of having to
retrace our steps, we suddenly emerged upon a wagon trail through thc
woods by which evidently there was
access to the beach.   At any rate the
road  in   the  other  direction   led   almost    exactly In the very angle we
sought to advance.
"I think we're right! Did you see
that?"
Over the crest of a hillock or dune
I saw something move. It had been
like the head of a man and had suddenly ducked as If at seeing us.
"Yes." Kennedy had seen It, too.
"I think that wa3 a look-out signaling approach."
"In that case we'll have to approach
carefully."
Easton almost jolted out of the car

na he clung to the precious Instruments to save It from the bumps.      ■
We jolted ahead over a sort of cor- j
duroy road mightly slowly. As we
came up to the foot of the hillock
over whose top the head of the man
had disappeared, .Kennedy turned. "I
think if I were you chaps I would
have my guns handy. I have mine
here."
Over the hilltop now we could see
an old red barn with a sagging roof.
But we saw nb one about it. Still
we proceeded carefully, mindful of
traps. Kennedy suddenly pulled up
tlie car.
"I think we'll take the rest on foot.
This must be the place. You can see
there is no other for a long distance
down this shore."
He sprang out and began walking
ahead, very observant both of the
barn for possible shnrpshootlng and
of the path he trod.
01 it sudden he stopped. He kicked at some branches and sod and hay
In his path, then pressed on it gingerly. The thing fell in. There, covered by leaves and grass, he had found
a pitfall In the vory trail we were
following. We decided to lenve thc
ear and complete the affair on foot.
At lam, we approached the barn. I
was astounded at not having received
a hot reception. 1 hnd expected more
traps, a set-gun, something unusual.
Instead, we had been, Impeded by not
a thing.
We made a careful diagnosis of the
situation. Here we were again and
again exposed to lire from the barn
if It harbored any enemies. Nothing
had happened. A quick glance had
told me that our approach had blocked the only other road, as well as
ours.
We peered In, and I can say it took
some nerve to do that after what wo
knew of Ibis desperate gang.
There at last was the gray racer-
hut abandoned aud dismantled in
haste. We examined it eagerly. That
is, they did. I stood guard to pro-
vent any sudden  surprise.
But nothing happened. The gang
had evidently escaped.
"Tires correspond with tire tracks
left In the garage." muttered Kennedy, "tlie make, tlle markings, even
every Imperfection."
E*: ton v as at thc cover of the real-
seat. Under it he and Craig discovered the remains of a mighty fine
wireless field set. But it was also

too,

No. 161—Hank had eleven animals,

No. 163—Frill, Craft, Scrape, Score,
Scowl, Chair.
No. 164—Farmer Sykes explains
that the square field contained BOO
pumpkin hills and 5 rows of squash
hills, so the pumpkin patch was ot a
rectangular shape, one side being 5
rows shorter than the other; therefore, two numbers, one 5 less than
the other, which multiplied together
produce 500, represents the dimensions of the pumpkin patch. One side
must hnve been 20 und the other 25
rows, so 25 x 25 gives 625 as the total
number of hills, 125 of which are
squashes which bear 12 squashes to
the hill, while the pumpkins yield
but 3.

A magnificent new public golf
■••course, costing in the neighbourhood of $15l,00'i has been constructed by tne Canadian Pacific
Railway at South Vancouver, and
was opened v ith an extensive programme on June 2flth.
Besides bell g an outstanding golf
course from the sporting stand
point, it rivals all others in the extreme beauty of its outlook, which
is ovcr thc Delta of the Fraser
River and the Gulf of Georgia. It
is called liy u lovely musical word,
"Langura," for that is the name
which early Spanish explorers gave
the beautiful peninsula of Point
Grey, on which the new course ii
situated.
"Langara" Golf Course extends
over 100 acres of gently undulating
land, and thc aggregate length of
18 holes is 0,630 yards with a par
of 74.
There is a fine club house on the
grounds, which cost $12,500 and is
splendidly equipped throughout with
spacious dining room, dressing
rooms, shower baths and lockers.    ,
But the most interesting feature |
of the new South Vancouver course
is that It is public, and thus within
the reach of tho man of moderate
means. A full round of 18 holes
costs only 50 cents, with monthly or
yearly rate of $2.50 and $20 respectively. -
"Langara" is said to be very
similar to the famous "Westward
Ilo" course near Biddeford, Devon,1
Knglnml, and is only four miles from
the heart of .Vancouver City.,
ln the second half, but Kyle's shot
was wide and Tait saved nicely on
McDIU'8 effort. Then Davis went
through alone, completely outmiui-
oeuvering the backs, only to miss
the corner of the net by Inches. He
was back a minute later, however, to
make good on Frank Strang's centre.
While Davidson waited for his next
move, Davis cooly turned tho ball
Into the corner of the net, giving the
goalie no chance to save.
"In the closing moments of the
game Kyle hnd another opening, when
Stewart mlsklcked In the goal-mouth,
hut Tait was right on the Job to grab
the Regina centre forward's hot drive.
Davis and Fowler passed up a
glorious chance to make It 5-0 whon |
just before the final whistle, both men
were a fraction of a second too lute
to turn Frank Strang's centre Into'
an open net.
"Tuffy' Davis was unquestionably
the super-star of the victorious miners. He made an Ideal pivot for the
attacking line, showed phenomenal
speed that left his checks far behind
and placed his wicked shots with uncanny precision. Hitchens gave evidence of his experience by his smart
football at left outside, while the
other forwards fitted well Into the
machine. The coast goalie had no
chance to shine, for two steady backs
and a brilliant half-line saved him
from trouble time and again.
"Bobby Lalng and Dune MacDonald
worked to best purpose for the Post,
while the half-backs were altogether
off color. On the front line McDIU
and Milligan showed up well, although they were closely checked
throughout by a clever and shifty defence. The printers' play, on the
whole, waa a distinct disappointment
