Hunting Season
Opens Tomorrow
GROUSE AND DEER SAID TO BE
PLENTIFUL
The hunting season open tomorrow morning at daybreak and already numbers of local sportsmen
have been noticed wending their way
to their favorite hunting grounds.
Black Creek, near Merville is the
rendezvous of many local bird hunters and as blue grouse are said to
be plentiful this year there is sure to
be a large number at the creek.
Others have gone further afield, favoring the country round Campbell
River and north of Oyster River.
Deer are also said to be plentiful
but Mr. Buck will be hard to bag if
this dry weather continues. Prospects, however for a successful hunting season are bright as Willow
grouse which become lawful prey on
October 15th for seventeen days, the
Reason being from the 15th to the
81st with both dates inclusive. With
so many hunters patronizing this end
of the Island it is to be hoped that
no serious accident will happen. If
hunters will take the necessary pre
caution there is no excuse for one
hunter shooting another in mistake
for a deer. A request has been sent
out by the Forestry department urging hunters to be careful with fire
during the dry spell prevalent just
now. More fires were caused last
September during the bunting season than at any time during the earlier part of the summer. Be sure your
camp fire is out before leaving, On
page 2 of this issue we publish some
things to do if you ore lost in the
woods. Read tlicni, Jhey are good

T. Carney against G, Shearer and J,
Taylor, the former winning by 21-
1(>; H. Jackson and W. Younger beat
W. Whyte and J. Gibb, 21-14.
It had been hoped to be able to
finish the tournament this week end
hut on account of the Nanaimo club
wanting a number uf the local bowlers to journey to the Hub city Sunday it is doubtful if the local tournament can be completed.

reference to the trophies won by local contestants, has received the foi
lowing reply, together with a list o;'
the events with official Limes:
"I have you enquiry of the Sth

you made in the 18 years and under
event, and Nanaimo will look forward to seeing you run next year.
"All trophies in connection with
the meet are for annual competition
and will have to be competed for

"We realize that the medals we
gave this year were not as showy as
they should have been, but the committee were a few hundred dollar:'
in the hole and were forced to economize. However, there is now a substantial sum on hand to ensure the
finances for next year, and the medals in future will be properly engraved and made of gold, silver and
bronze.

In an effort to organize soccer for
the coming season for the northern
portion of the Island a meeting of
all interested in the round ball game
has heen called for Sunday night in
tbe Band Halt.    It is almost certain
I that representatives from two of
Cumberland's junior teams will be
present in addition to representatives
from Courtenay. Whether it is intended to include Parksville, Alberni
1 and Nanaimo in the proposed northern league could not be ascertained.
Soccer hus had a long rest in this
district and it seems rather a pity
with so many promising juniors here
and with a first-class field to play on
that the old game should go by the
board. A determined effort however
will be made at the meeting on Sunday to bring the game back to a semblance of  its  former popularity.

Agricultural
Conditions In
Comox Valley
Weather conditions for August
have been ideal for harvesting, with
the exception of a few days, namely,
the 15th, 16th, 22nd and 23rd, when
some rainfall was experienced. The
weather has been quite clear and
warm.
Horticulture.
Scab has been very prevalent with
apples and* also the size and color
of the fruit is not up to standard.
From present indications, it looks as
if the yield of both apples, plums and
pears will be fairly small this year.
The Transpnrents are now ready to
pick in this district and the Graven-
steins will be ready in the course of
a few days. Some of the early plums
are now on the local markets but
even these are rather on the small
side this year.
Field   Crops.
The warm weather has in some
cases hastened the ripening of grains
rather too rapidly with the result
Ihat the oats in particular for threshing may be somewhat lessened in
yield. Most of the oats are now
either ready to cut or have been cut
and threshed and threshing machines
are now 'busy in many districts.
Potatoes have for the most [tart
made luxuriant growth of tops but
in some cases the tubers are rather
on Ihe small side. With continued
favorable weather, these should still
size up nnd make a very favorable
showing.
The variety tests of oats which
have been carried on in this district
have now bcen completed and will
be shipped to the University in the
course of a few days.
On account of the wet weather
during the early part of the season,
from present observations, it can be
seen that the feed situation in various districts will he well taken care
of this year, although on the higher
sandy lands ,the grass is suffering
somewhat from the dry weather. In
most cases the moisture in the soil
is sufficient to keep these areas safe
from  drying up too  much.
Doings At Ottawa
Ottawa, September 9th. (Special
to the Islander),—As this letter is
written the special session of Parliament to deal with unemployment is
under way. The full program of the
Government is, as Mr. Bennett promised, directed to immediate betterment of conditions. It is in no sense
offered ns a permanent remedy.
That can be achieved, he believes,
only hy a rather comprehensive revision of fiscal policy, which, it is
anticipated, will be laid before the
regular session of the House early in
the New Year.
The process wall be lengthy and
acrimonious. Even were the facts
at hand to permit the introduction
of such tariff changes as well pro
vide a more staple remedy, it would
be useless to bring them forward
now with the idea of stimulating employment through the coming winter.
They will unquestionably run counter to Opposition views and ure likely
to bring many weeks, if not months
of debate and, when they are carried
it will take months for their reaction
upon economic conditions to become
apparent in expanding employment

1 IN SECOND SESSION.
The facts upon which Mr. Bennett
will act in framing his fiscal policy
are not sufficiently complete to enable him to proceed this week, or
next. In truth, the conditions to be
met are not wholly known. Nor can
they be until such time as the Economic Conference of the Empire
meets in London next month and
proves the extent and limitations of
actual and mutual cooperation possible at this period in trades within
tbe Empire.
Upon the'success or failure of proposals for mutually beneficial agreements within the Empire, must be
largely premised the policy of the
imediato future in Canudu.
One of the greatest exponents of
Empire economic cooperation is in
Canada at the present time. He is
Lord Melchett, the great industrialist, of London, England. He is seizing every opportunity to emphasize
the wisdom and necessity of this cooperation, which ho views as the life-
blood of Empire solidarity. Were ull
Englishmen us "solid" on the subject
us Lord Melchett, Mr. Bennett would
have little difficulty in finding a
permanent market for Canadian
: grain and other products of agriculture in Britain. Unfortunately, such
is not the euse.

Review No. 17, Women's Benefit
Association held a very busy session
on Thursday evening last, 6 new
members being initiated. Following
the business a social time was spent,
ice cream and cake being served.
The opening of Parliament, even
for a brisk und abbreviated business
session, was attended with customary pomp. It was shorn of the brilliant social functions—the drawing
room and State dinner—which customarily follow, but the opening itself was up to the usual standard of
social pageantry. A new Parliament
brings ninny new members, and in
this respect the present House is
outstanding. While the families of
many former members did not appear, those of men taking their ploces
for the first time descended upon the
capital en masse.
Gossip still flourishes us to the
probable length of the session. While
some correspondents are currying it
along into months, the best guess is
that two weeks will see it prorogued,
even if closure hus to be udopted to
do so. While Government apply that
pressure reluctantly, they do it not
infrequently. Mr. King enforced u
type of closure only lust session to
stop debute upon resolution duuling
with soldiers' pensions.
In the present instunce the Government accepts full responsibility
for its emergency measures and the
necessity of permitting leading members of the Ministry to attend the
London conferences, in order thut a
permanent remedy for unemployment may be arrived at, will be considered ample justification for using
closure if obstruction develops.
If the session ends within fourteen
days the cost will be $118,310. Each
day costs §5,115 in indemnities, so
that there is little foundation for the
rumors spread that the session will
cost a million or two million dollars.
i Badminton players ure beginning
1 to get their rackets all ready for the
opening of tbe season for the popular indoor winter game. Organization meetings of several of the local
clubs will be held this month with
prospects bright for a new club to
start in the Anglican Hall in October. The Whippets will use the Band
Hall again and the United players
the Church Hall of the United
Church. Two or three small dubs
are said to be getting ready and the
Anglican Hall will he their headquarters.
As far as the big club goes, the
Imperialites, it has not been learned
yet whether the Imperial pavilion
will be available this year as rumour
has it that Joe Idiens la contemplating putting in an up-to-date miniature golf course for the winter.
The Courtenay club will probably
start towards the lutter end of the
present month, using the Native Sons
hull and the Campbell River club will
be stronger than ever and will use
the Community hall at Campbellton.
Residents At
Lang's Camp
Get Big Scare
Fire Checked  in Time
Residents at Lang's Beach, north
of Union Bay, got quite a scare on
Saturday last when a bush tire threatened to destroy the buildings, Messrs. T. H. Mumford and R. C. Lang
who have been spending some considerable time at the bench, worked
all Saturday in an effort to subdue
the blaze. During the morning a
cull for assistance wus sent into
Courtenay and the fire wnrden arrived with equipment. Water wus
pumped from the salt chuck und with
the assistance of the volunteers the
blaze was got under control. After
it was all over the fire warden was
heard to remark that he never for
one moment thought it was possible
to subdue the fire. He thanked tbe
volunteers for their great assistance,
as without their help he would have
been   powerless.

CUMBERLAND ISLANDER, CUMBERLAND, B. C
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12th, 1830.
The Cumberland Islander
PUBLISHED  EVERY   FRIDAY  AT CUMBERLAND,   B.C
EDWARD W. BICKLE
FOR CUMBERLAND MERCHANTS
THERE'S money in Cumberland. There are
people here to spend il and there's good business for you, .Mr. Merchant—it' you will join
the Islander in helping to keep business in Cumberland.
It all boils down to the very important thought,
that nearby towns and mail order houses are
always trying to attract trade from smaller communities.
Always trying! Very often succeeding! And,
sad but all too true, to the detriment of yon, the
merchants of Cumberland and the merchants of
all other smaller towns.
What to do about it is a problem you must help
to solve, if yon are to prosper. A mighty vital
problem it is, too, as yon well know.
Just the same, we can keep Cumberland's money
in Cumberland and the people of Cumberland can
be brought around to the habit of buying in Cumberland almost exclusively, And you can make
both conditions possible.
This newspaper has joined with other newspapers of the Province in a wide campaign to convince national advertisers thai they enn best
assist small town merchants by advertising in
the local, home town papers of the small town
merchants. The manufacturers advertising in
Cumberland's home newspaper will help yon sell
more of your merchandise to more and to the
greatest number of Cumberland people. This advertising support will help keep Cumberland's
money in Cumberland. Il will mean frond business
for you—and more of it.
The very next time a salesman from whom you
order merchandise comes to your store, sell him
on Cumberland. Of course, you must sell yourself
first. Get Cumberland minded. Get the salesman
feeling the same way. Enthusiasm is contagious,
and that is what is required in Cumberland. The
eoa! industry is coming back—no doubt about that
and before very long Cumberland will be enjoying
tin? prosperity to which she is justly entitled. The
local Colliery Company is doing all in its power to
bring about better conditions in the industry, advertising extensively in the daily papers in an
effort to convince the people of Hritish Columbia
that Island eoal is superior to any other fuel on
the market. Results are bound to accrue and the
experiments being carried on with pulverized coal
will undoubtedly prove of benefit to the industry.
Yes, Mr. Merchant, coal is coming back and before
very long we shall see Cumberland once more the
busy hive.
We ask you to join us and assist in this campaign. You need the advertising aid of the.manufacturers whose goods you stock—urge their
salesman to recommend your local home newspaper.
ESSAY ON SCOTLAND
CHURCH SUPPORT
WE HEAR a lot nowadays about how much
the average man should give towards his
minister and his church. It is a matter
that has been thrashed out time after time, and
the result has been, so tar as we can learn, that
nothing definite has yet been arrived at. Men
who are often free and open-handed in almost
every other respect are often tight-fisted when it
comes to church matters. We have seen it time
after time. Crossing over to Vancouver recently
we travelled with a well known business man. a
real good sport. On the conclusion of the meal on
the boat our friend left a tip for the waiter of 50c
yet the same man when he does go to church,
drops a nickel on the collect ion plate. There are
lots lik.1 him. Hut our friend would not live in a
community where there were no churches. Oh,
im. He knows that church work and church attendance mean the cultivation of the habit of
reeling responsibility for others. All good men
do not attend church, but you will notice that
most of the big men of affairs in the world belong
to some church and attend its services quite regularly.
The preacher has a hard time of it at best. If
he is grey, he is too old. if he is young, he hasn't
had experience. If he stays at home in his study
he is a poor mixer. If he is seen on the street he
should be at home getting up a good sermon. If
he calls on some poor family he is playing to the
gallery. If he calls at the homo of the rich he is
an aristocrat. Whatever he does, someone could
have told him better. He has a fine time living
oil' donations which never come in and promises
that never materialize.
Everybody should make it a point to contribute
a fixed sum to bis church, whether it be a dollar
a week or a dollar a month, or ten times these
amounts, but let it be something. One never hears
of a man going bankrupt on account of his church
contribution,

Scotland as a braw wee land on the
north of England. It has water nearly all round of it. The population is
about four and a half millions, including Mrs. Andrew Carnegie. It
has a peculiar language of its own,
and if one can pronounce it coherently it is an infallible test of sobriety. It possesses considerable mineral wealth but very little of it finds
its way out of the country. Cold has
at times been discovered in certain
districts as well as in the pockets of
certain natives.
The \iest known exports are Harry
Lauder, Peter Fraser nnd Scotch
whiskey, though sufficient of the latter is retained in the country to satisfy the demands of home consumption.
The chief Import in recent years
is Winston Churchill.
The national dress of Scotland is

In pattern it resembles a chess board,
but in cold weather the wearer finds
it more like a draft board. It is believed to have been invented because
the aborigdnals were unable to find

The bagpipes provide a wind instrument which is said, when hlown,
to produce a tune. On many occasions in the history of wars, Scotch
regiments have marched to death
listening to the strains of the bagpipes, though it is not known whether their willingness to meet the former wns inspired to escape the latter.
Scotland has produced many well

poet. It is usually denied thnt he
was born in Battelsea. Hte most
fnmous poems are "Scots Who Have"
and "Stop Your Tickling, Jock."

HEALTH SERVICE
ofthe
Canadian Medical Association
I Ignorance as to the condition of your
, body simply leads you to cheat your-
i self by depriving yourself of the care
; you may need.
The enemies to health can mostly
, all be overcome. Disease when treat-
'. ed early can usually be cured. The
■ best way to accomplish this is by the
j periodic examination.
Questions concerning Health, ad-
•IresM'U to tlie Canadian Medical
Association, 184. College St., Toronto, will he answered personally
liy correspondence.
"ANYTHING WRONG WITH ME?"
If they were to he asked the question, the majority of people would reply. "There is nothing wrong with
me." Yet wo know that although this
answer would he an honest expression of opinion, it would, in many
cases, be far from the truth. By this
we mean that many people have
something wrong with them without
thnlr knowing it, and that trouble
often takes possession without announcing its arrival.
Admittedly wc should all he able
t'i Bay "Thero is nothing wrong with
me", but wc should be able to say
with assurance of its being true. It
may he t:*ue, but we do not know
wi ether it i ni' nol unless we have
ha.I a health examination.
Why is it that when it is common
knowledge that nl! machines require
supervision and roguter checking up
to keep them running smoothly and
to prolong their usefulness, there is
utter disregard of the need for any
such  supervision   uf  the   body   ma
chines?
It is surprising how many successful business men seem to imagine
that, because they have accumulated
wealth, their bodies are in some way
different, and who act as if they were
in some way immune to the ills that
befall.
It would seem that as health is
such an evident asset, it would not
be necessary to point out to any person the fact that it is. It might be
expected that the man who is successful in business would make at
least a fair success of living, and yet
we know that this is not the case
with many men and women.
We are not suggesting that the
tight way to live is to cultivate a
state of mind that considers nothing
but possibilities of illness [that would
Indeed be anything but desirable.
Wo do state emphatically however,
that the art of healthy living is the
most Important luisiness responsibility we huve.
Based on this misunderstanding.
wc recommend that the periodic
health examination is a simple and
desirable routine which should he
practiced by everyone. Periodic
health examination is a good habit;
it is good business. Ignorance is always   expensive,   if  not   dangerous.

Vancouver, Sept. 8.—"Inter-Km-
pire trade occupies the minds of almost every ihinKing man throughout
the King's Dominion, und at the coming Imperial Conference, at which all
parts oi the Empire wil) be represented, this question will be upper*
most and the result of that conference will Indicate what lines the future expansion and consolidation of
the Empire will take", Henry B.
ihumson, chairman of the Liquor
Control lioard declared in his address before the Vancouver Canadian
Cluh today,
•"In that excellent book which has
just been published) 'lCconomic Prosperity in the British Empire,' by
Stephen Leacock, the position i.s
summed up in these words:
" 'It is within the reach of statesmanship to initiate in the British Empire an era of prosperity and progress such as the world has never
yet seen anywhere at any time.'
"Ihe statesmen of the Empire will
foregather in London, the heart of
the Empire, and they will be fully
Impressed with the importance of
their work, as each of them realize
their individual problems will, as a
result of thc conference, be blended
into one Imperial policy." continued
Mr. Thomson.
"Since the declaration of war in
August, 1914, the minds of the public and the business men of the Empire have been endeavoring to grapple with the situation, but no clear-
cut solution has yet been arrived at
for the reason that the war completely disjointed and upset the trade of
the world, ami as a result of the war,
new problems, new conditions, and
entirely different surrounding circumstances had to be faced.
Dangerous    Experiments
"Experiments have been made on
many lines. Crank theories have
been tried out anti have in process
of time been exploded. When interfering with the channels and methods of world trade which look centuries to build up, experiments can
always lie looked upon as dangerous,
and of this we have had many examples. Amongst them might be
mentioned the 'wheat pool1, and you
all know what effect this has had on
business in general throughout Canada.
"Through the conditions brought
about by the war, many people get
away from the fundamental fact that
the old principle of supply and demand is the only paramount ruling
theory. In this regard Britain has
her supplies of  manufactured  mer
chandise.    On the other hand 8U per
cent of the  foodstuffs  consumed  in
the British Isles is imported.
Enormous   Food Imports
"England sends money out of the
country at the rate of $5,0(JU per
minute for foodstuffs:
"The total money paid out for
foodstuff import amounts to $2,555,-
000,000 per annum, or at the rate
of $7,000,000 daily.
"The imports of butter, bacon,
eggs, beef, cheese and pork exceed
$17,500,000 per week.
"Egg imports into Britain increased from .$57,000,000 in 1920 to over
8100,000,000  in  1929.
"New Zealand increased her cheese
and butter exports from $»:i5,iKi5,875
in 1929 to $89,980,090 in 1928.
"In 1928 Britain imported over
21,000,000 dozen eggs from Egypt
China and Morocco.
"The  imported  foodstuffs  for the
British breakfast table run into fabulous figures each year:
Bacon and pig products $275,000,000
Eggs     100,000,000
Butter     275,000,000
Total   $050,000,000
Therefore the money sent out of the
country amount to $1,780,825 a day
for British breakfasts.
"New Zealand exports of frozen
mutton and beef increased from
$2-1,780,880 in 1918 to $5,648,810 in
1928.
"Butter imports into Great Britain from Denmark increased from
$58,800,000 in 1920 to $98,(i48,,165
in 1929.
Denmark increased her bacon export to England from $:t5.000,000
in 1020 to $1,175,500,000 in 1929.
"Many people will say surely if
the British farmer energized he
could produce more eggs, butter and
bacon. This i.s obvious, as Denmark
has done it, and from a poor impoverished country thirty years ago her
exports to Great Britain yearly alone
in those commodities amount to:
Bacon   $130,147,580
Butter         98,08.1,.'i05
Eggs          23,495,720
Total    $258,827,665
"The Danes are a thrifty, intelligent people, and under Government
gtiichince have succeeded wonderfully, but the initiative und 'push' came
from the people themselves.
"Britain imports from the Argentine $025,000,000 of foodstuffs a
year.
"To bring (his matter home to our
own province, what is the condition
of affairs here? The last year for
whicli statistics are given show that
British Columbia imported $22,014,-
070 worth of farm produce, 73 per
cent of which came from other provinces within the Dominion and 27
per cent came from foreign ports.
B.C.   Imports
"Last year in this province butter
tu the extent of 12,500,000 pounds
was consumed; of this 7,500,00 tbs.
were imported. This means 25,000
more cows, or, 2,500 new farmers
could  have been employed.
"Vancouver Island produces only
enough butter to feed her population
for fifty-three days in the year. Meat
imports on the Island are 75 per cent
of the consumption, and would equal
21,000 head of cattle, 08,000 sheep
aud   121,000   pigs.
"Rome 7,000,000 pounds of canned
meats are imported yearly into British Columbia; 3,500,000 pounds of
canned vegetables and 3,300,000 tbs.

doing to develop them? The province, though small in size as regards
population, which, according to the
last statistics, is only 590,000, has
an area exceeding the total combined area of the United Kingdom,
France, Holland, Belgium and Denmark, yet our population is not as
much as the town of Sheffield iu England.
Work   Is   Solution
"This will give you some slight
idea of the work we have before us,
and it should be a matter of the
keenest interest to every citizen in
the province to see what can be done
first of all to reduce our heavy imports of agricultural products, all of
which can be raised here, and secondly, to put our shoulders to the
wheel and further expand what exports we have and open up and develop British Columbia.
Cites New Zealand
"New Zealand is a wonderful example of what energy and organization can do wilh a population of less
than 1,500,00 people. She exports
over S275.0O0.OOO worth of most agricultural products, and her exports
of dairy products since the war have
risen from $30,000,000 a year to
$80,000,0000.
"New Zealand has nearly one cow
per capita of her population and
eighteen sheep. She supplies Great
Britain, 1,400 miles away, with 55
per cent of Hritish imports of mutton and lamb, 23 per cent of British
imports of butter, 53 per cent of
British imports of cheese and 23 per
cent of British imports of wool.
Campaign   in   England
"Dealing with the conditions and
affairs in Great Britain. As most of
you are aware, a tremendous concentrated campaign has been conducted in those isles principally by a
Canadian, Lord Beaverbrook, who,
with the power of his wealth and his
tremendous chain of newspapers, is
bringing it home to the people of
England that in order to re-establish
prosperity they must seek an outlet
for their goods, and particularly develop and reciprocal trade with all
portions of the King's Dominions.
"It will be well remembered by
many here the campaign of that
great Imperial statesman, the Kight
Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, which was
started in July. 1003. His police
everyone now admits, would have
unified the Empire and consolidated
our world position. He gallantly
fought the battle until il) health
overtook him in 1910, and as we all
know he passed away just before the
war, July 3, 1914. Like many other
prophets, he did not live to see the
fulfilment of his great ideas and his
great vision.
"On July 3, 1930, the famous
bankers' manifesto was issued supporting the movements they had opposed in his lifetime. This was just
sixteen years today from his death,
and twenty-seven years from the
starting of his great Imperial campaign.    Large bodies move slowly.
"Even today there are many British statesmen who cannot grasp the
importance of the situation. Not
long ago Lord Grey of Fallodon summed up the position in these remarks:
" 'Empire free trade will not do
because llu* Dominion an* not ready
for it.'
"From a Canadian point of view
this statement is as amazing as it
is pathetically amusing. As far
back as 1806 the Dominion of Canada annunciated a policy of Imperial
preference and, as we all know, British goods imported into Canada have
had a substantial preference over
importations from alien countries
ever since.
"This has recently been further
augmented nnd Ihe last revision of
the tariff gave preference to British

Arthur Beauvais, well-known
Indian guide at the Chateau
Frontenac, Quebec City, owes
much of h is popularity among
visitors to the hostelry to the team
of huskies that mush them out on
snowsled trips in the winter.
Chief among his team is its leader,
"Jeff," and at the last minute it
occurred to Arthur to enter Jeff
at the Montreal  Kennel Associa
tion Show held recently. He took
no particular trouble in beautifying him for the occasion and accordingly was gratified to learn
that he had taken three first priies
and one special priie. In fact, he
would have taken another special
prize as the best dog shown, if
Beanvaia had not taken him away
to catch a train. Illustration

"Goodnesn me!" said Mra.
Brown, "I've just been to
town to get my table provisions, and I've forgotten
the meat for dinner. I wish
I'd taken the Smith's ad-
vice and had a telephone
installed; I could just call
up and have the meat sent.
But I didn't—so I guess
there's nothing for it but to
make  the  trip  over again."

practicable from several angles, but
she could expect a .sheltered market
whereby she could dispose of her
crop, and surely we are deciprocut-
ing handsomely by purchases of British goods imported under a very substantial preference tariff. The British consumer is protected from a
'hold up' on price for the reason ihat
the Empire produces over 240,000,-
000 bushels more than its total requirements.
Liquor Control
"Possibly on an occasion like this
1 am expected to say something
about the liquor question in the Province of  British  Columbia.
"First of all ,the importance given
to this question b ythe press and liy
the public surely is un Indication of
lack of proper proportion. Were we
to visit France, mercurial and hysterical though we may deem the
French people, would we not ridicule
anti comment upon a whole nation
pining its future progress ami destiny on tlu* question of 'booze'?
"This situation has reached such
a head that within a week one was
amazed to read on the front page of
a British Columbia daily paper the
important   announcement   that   the
Chicago gang leader and bootlegger
(Scar-Faced Al Capone) was not
dead, lmt only suffering from u cold.
The world, no doubt, is now anxiously waiting for news of 'Hard-Boiled
George1 and what he cats for break-
fust.
"The present situation has, as you
all know, arisen as one of the results
of the war. .Many people deemed
that total prohibition would help the
war.   The results you know.
"Government control came into
this province early in the game.
From the normal man's point of view
the distribution of liquor to those
who want it should be conducted
much on the lines of the postoffice
where people can go and buy whnt
they require, It is plain, therefore,
we could eliminate a lot of trouble in
this connection were people to look
upon the whole situation in a coldblooded businesslike way.
Observe   the   Law
"The present Liquor Act, as it
stands on the statute hooks, is the
luw of the land. Be it wise or otherwise, it is the law; anil all right-
thinking people will do their best to
en-operate and see that it is kept,
the board with the
tin* people is a sim-

"Later on, when you know there
were great difficulties from the railroad viewpoint of getting a Western
movement of grain, the argument
being advanced that shipments of
grain would not stand transportation
through the tropics via the Panama
Canal owing to the moisture, I had
an opportunity, ns Food Controller
of Canada ,l<t arrange for the shipment of two cargoes through thc
Panama with men upon them to keep
*i complete record of the temperature
and moisture of lhe wiieat under the
varying tropical conditions, and these
records of the cargoes completely exploded the theory and established the
fact that the Panama Canal route
was both feasible and practical. The
result today is the development of
Vancouver as a great grain port, ami
it is a matter of pride with inc. personally, that I played my small part
in this development.

Patronize a B.C. Product
Order your Christmas Cards this year from
someone who specializes in this class of work.
You would not think of going to a grocery store
to buy jewelery. Why go to anyone else but
a printer for Christmas cards? We have the
finest samples of greeting cards that it has ever
been our lot to handle. Most of tham are B.C.
products and printed right here in Cumberland.
The cards that are imported ones are plainly
marked. Every dollar you spend on these cards
remains in B. C—and most of it right here in
Cumberland. Order early and if not convenient
to call at the office just 'I'hone 35 and sample
books will be sent.
