Property Owners
Favor Negotiations
City Council Will Enter Into Negotiations With Electric Light and
Water Companies for Purchase of Their Businesses
Another Plebiscite Before Final Decision
Some months ago. following n gooil
deal of discussion re electric lighting
rates In Cumberland, the city council
took Into consideration, tiie taking
over of the Cumberland Electric
Lighting Company and with that end
in view wrote the company asking for
a price to lie placed on their business,
also the property and business of tbe
Cumberland and Union Waterworks
Company. The price put on by the
companies referred to amounted to
$235,000 for bolh plants... $125,000 for
plant and equipment of the Electric
Lighting Company, payable in cash,
compensation to be allowed for unexpired portion of franchise, uncol-
lectable accounts at the time of purchase and stock on hand to be subject to purchase at cost price; tbe
Waterworks Company placed their
property and business at a ligure of
$100,000, payable In cash, offer to he
binding for six months.
After a loi of discussion at the various council meetings it was resolved
to put the matter up to the property
owners of Cumberland, a plebiscite
to be held on tho day of the election,
January the 17th: This plebiscite was
not intended to bind tbe property
owners in any shape or form, as a lot
of them appeared to think it would.
All the council was asking was for
the nuthorlly of the property owners
to proceed with negotiations and a
further plebiscite will be taken when
the purchase price has been finally
settled upon. It will then be up to
tho property owners of Cumberland
to gay whether the City should buy
the business above mentioned or not.
The plebiscite taken on Thursday
of this week drew quite a number of
tlie propery owners to the city hall
to record their vote. The polling
booth was kept open until S p.m., thus
giving everyone an opportunity to
record their vote. The result more
than justified the prediction of the fa-
thers o( the movement, one hundred
and twenty-four votes being cast ou
eacli of the ballots.
The ballots on tho Electric Light j
question read as follows: "Are you in [
favor of the City negotiating with tne
Cumberland Electric Lighting Com- j
pany for the purchase of their busi-
ness." The returning officer an- j
nouneed the results of this ballot as
Por 112; against, 12. A clear majority j
of one hundred in favor of negotiating with the Electric Light Company.
In the case of the Cumberland and
Union Watreworks company, the ballot read: "Are you in favor of tbe |
City negotiating with the Cumberland:
and Union Waterworks Company, Ltd.
for the purchaseof their plant and
holdings?"
The result wns for 107; against Hi
spoiled ballots 3; giving a majority
of 93 in favor of negotiating with tho
Waterworks Company.

Stained Glass Windows To Be
Installed In Memory of Workers

ested In an announcement from Victoria that three stained glass windows
in the New Christ Church Cathedral
are to bear the Inscription:
"In grateful remembrance of Parents. Missionary Workers, and All

now at work on tho windows, which
nre to be in place in time for the opening of the cathedral next September
or October. The walls of the cathedral now stand over 80 feet in height,
the stone vaulting of the nave celiug
is finished, and soon the permanent
copper roof will he built. This is to
rise to an apex 108 feet above the
ground.
It Is understood that a number of
young peopl0 end adults In this district are contributing to thc fund
which is being raised to cover the
cost of the stonework and stained
glass for those windows. To make It
possible for nil to help who wish to
do so, the Young People's nnd Children's committee for the New Cathedral have arrnaged the Seventieth

Mayor Maxwell
Makes It Four
Times Straight
No Contest in Cumberland; Aldermen and School Trustees
Elected by Acclamation
.Nomination day ln Cumberland was
extremely quiet. No last minute nominations turned up ns a few of the
wise ones suspected, consequently,
the council for 1929 will he tho same
as last year: Mayor Alex. Maxwell;
Aldermen, Messrs. C. J. Parnham, T.
Munmford, J. Ledingham, J. Williams
W. Henderson and D. Bannerman. A
little change will be noticed amongst
the Board of School Trustees, as Mra.
Banks, after serving faithfully for a
number of years, decided to resign
from the board, although the popular
chairman bad another year to run and
did not have to offer herself for reelection. Pressure was brought to
boar on Mrs. Banks to see if she
would not reconsider her determination, but all to no purpose. Mr. Daniel Bannerman also resigned and the
two new members of tho board will be
Mrs. F. Partridge aud Mjrs. Flora
Baird, the board comprising lu addition to these two ladies. Mrs. G. K.
MacNaughton, Messrs. W. Henderson
and A.  MacKinnon.
Mayor Alex. Maxwell will be the
city's chief magistrate for another
year. This makes it four straight for
Mr. Maxwell and under his guidance
and with tiie knowledge of municipal
affairs at his finger ends, the 1920
council should surpass all previous
years activities. All the council are
well versed in municipal affairs and
pull very well together, no dissension
being noticed at any of tbe meetings
during the year Just closed. If tho
questions to be settled lu the next two
or three months pass off as amicably
as the 102S sessions, thero will be no
danger of any hold up.

i nlng. The club members spent thc

No Increase For
B.C. Civil Servants
Victoria, Jan. 10— There is sadness
In  the  Parliament Buildings.
The new Government is going to
carry out its platform of economy by
cutting tho payroll, It is reported.
Tho statutory Increase In salary for
civil servants will not be recommended to the Legislature In the estimates
this session. Under Civil Service Act
various classes of employees are graded so that every so often they get a
little jump of pay of about $50 or j
$100 a year,
When the preliminary draft of the
estimates came before the Executive j
Council a short time ago, these Increases wore all Included. But the
Cabinet faced with the necessity of
making good on its promise of reducing the cost of government, wiped
them all out. It Is stated. So thc civil
servants will get no Increase iu pay
this year.
Premier S. F. Tolmie Is making every effort to have the estimates and
legislation In readiness before tho
House moots. The Executive Council has been meeting day and night
for the last two weeks. Evening
meetings are of almost doily occurrences, because as much of the day
time available is taken up with receiving deputations urging various
enactments.

The Coal  Problem
Charles Camsell, Deputy .Minister
of Mines in the Federal Government,
recently made an earnest plea for
wholehearted and sympathetic co-on-
eration In the greater consumption
of Canadian coal, which draws fresh
attention to Canada's coal problem
and the various means which are being
devised to solve It. Canada possesses
nearly one-fifth of the entire coal supply of the world yet owing to the
peculiar situation of the Dominion's
deposits she is not producing one-
half of the coal annually consumed
In tiie country. This may be considered possibly Canada's acutest problem, to the solution of which the finest
minds are devoting their energies.
The whole situation develops from
the fact that Canada's coal-producing
aieas arc situated In the extreme east
and west, leaving the great Industrial
centre provinces dependent upon im-
j portatlons.    The  situation   there   Is
relieved to some extent through tbe
| wealth   of   water   powers   possessed
I which are each year to an Increasing
j extent being harnessed to utilization.
' At the same time the matter of domestic fuel provision is receiving the
utmost  attention   and   is   being   approached  from  different  angles.
A very hearty vote of thanks was
passed at the meeting of the Church
committee to Mrs. L. II, Finch in appreciation of faithful BOrvlceB as organist during the past year.
All being well, the Amateur Theatrical Society hope to put on an entertainment In the Parish Hall on
Monday, February 11 th. Tbe programme wil consist of variety turns
and a very humorous farce entitled
"Between  the Soup and the Savory."
Too Many Nickels

nnd work of God by those who think
nothing of spending a great deal more
on various forms of pleasure," declared the Very Rev. Cecil Quainton.
' Dean of Columbia, in speaking of
I church matters recently. The Dean
I has many admirers in Cumberland
i and district.
In 1i1h verbal castlgalion of those
• niggardly inclined. Dean Quainton
remarked that nothing he said referred to the poor or to children, but to
those who could afford to give more
to the work nf the church.
"Demands upon the church are becoming greater and not less." be said,
1 in dwelling Upon the need of more attention to education In religion to
I "enable the church to keep abreast of
i modern thought and to Inspire young
t und old to give the best of their In-
j telligeuco, talents and service to th"
I spread of tho Gospel and the good of

' soclation   visited   the   courts  of  the

I refreshments were being served, of-
| fered to the Whippet club, on behalf
I of the Athletic club, two trophies for

of the winner.   The members present
thanked Mr. Taylor for the kind offer
of  the  Athletic  club  and  after  considerable  discussion   it   was  decided

At a Canadian Club supper hold in
the dining room of the Native Sons'
Hall, Courtenay, on Thursday evening, a very Interesting and Instructive illustrated address was given
by Mr. Walter N. Sage, Professor of
History in the University of British
Columbia, on "Early History of British Columbia Prior to Confederation."
ln Introducing the speaker. Mr. B.
S, Abrams, President of tho Club,
said that Professor Sage was born
in Ontario, graduated from tho Toronto University, went to Oxford University in 1913 and after his return
from Oxford was on the staff of
Queen's University for three years.
He was appointed to his present position on the staff of the University ot
B.C. a few years ago and while being
a student of history In general, makes
a particular hobby of Canadian His-
story.
BX.'s Greatest .Man
On rising. Professor Sage said that
while the general theme of bis address was the early history of British Columbia, his special topic was
British Columbia's greatest man, Sir
James Douglas. Three different places
he said, were given as tho birthplace
of Douglas but he thought the best
evidence was in favor of Lanark, Scotland, as bis correct birthplace where
he was born in 1S03. When a lad of
sixteen he Joined tho Northwest Fur
Trading Company and came to Canada, tho trip across the water taking
seven weeks. Mr. Sage graphically
described th0 boy's trip up the Ottawa
River, across the divide to Lake Nippi-
sing and Georgian Hay, up boisterous
Lake Superior to Fort William, one
of the greatest trading posts of the
company, across to Lake Winnipeg
and to Fort Churchill und up the
Churchill River . Tbe next year ho
was sent out to Fort Vancouver, Oregon.
The eptaker i.nV "f incident* fti the
life or the young man at Fort Vancouver; how the books had to he
balanced once a year and taken by
messenger to headquarters, a trip of
six thousand miles taking several
months and frequently Douglas had
to make the trip. It was on ono of
these trips, lu 1835 nfter the amnlga-
tlon of the Northwest Company with
the Hudson's Bay Company, that he
received his commission as Chief
Trader, shortly afterwards being promoted lo the position of Chief Factor.
Doom of (lie Fur Trader
But the covered wagon, safd .Mr.
Sago, brought the doom of the fur
trader in Oregon; the fur trader couid
not stand up against tho settler and
the fur post was transferred to Fort
Victoria on Vancouver Island and It
was the founding of Fort Victoria that
saved Vancouver Island to tho British Empire. Blunchurd came out
from England ns the llrst governor
but only stayed a year when Douglas
was appointed governor. He had an
assembly of seven members, tliroo of
whom were from Victoria. At tlie
llrst meeting of the assembly, Douglas
made a wonderful speech, not for tho
small company before him, but for
the generations yet to como.
Gold Struck In 1858
At that time the Hudson's Bay Company controlled nil revenue with tho
one exception of liquor licenses hui
In 185S gold was struck fn British Columbia and apparently the whole of
California moved up, twenty to thirty
thousand people coming In with a
rush. Douglas had to act and acted
promptly, He had no authority on
tho mainland from Queen Victoria,
but had authority from the Hudson's
Hay Company and made regulations
accordingly However, be wtw appointed governor of British Columbia
In 18&S and the new government wns
formed at Fort Langloy but he later
ruled both colonies fr,"n Victoria with
this difference thnt tho Victoria col-
only  was  ruled  with  an  assembly,
while on the mainland he ruled alone.
He retired In 1SU1 and went on a
grnnd lour of Europe after which ho
returned to his homo at James Bay.
He died  suddenly In  1S77.
After the address, with tho assistance of Mr. E. L, MacDonald at tho
lantern. Mr. Sage showed a number
of views of the early days, mostly
taken from photographs made by Victoria's flrst photographer. They depicted the old forts, old camps, tho
Cariboo trail aud early maps of tbo
West Coast.
On motion of Mr. W. A. W. Hames,
seconded by Mr. Wm. Eadie, a hearty
vote of thanks was tendered Professor  Rage.
The delgthtful supper was provided
by McHdumes McPhw and Sutherland. PAGE TWO

municipal affairs have been conducted during
1928 asthe old council of last year will again guide
the destinies of the city for 1929. All retiring
aldermen have been confirmed in office without
having to ask the electorate to go through the
customary process of voting and in the case ot
the school trustees although two members resign,
ed, no contest took place, two well known residents
offering their services and again the electorate
was satisfied. We congratulate all who have been
fully endorsed and predict a most successful year
under their administration.
As far as the council is concerned, the matter
of the negotiations with tbe Cumberland Electric
Lightning Company, and the Cumberland and
Union Waterworks Company will occupy a lot of
their time before the issue is settled. Of course
the final decision rests with the property owners
and we sincerely hope that the 1929 council will
be able to present the matter to the property
owners in a clear, concise and fair maimer.    If
♦
i whichever way the decision goes, can be no come'
backs.
With  trade  in  Cumberland  progressing,  the I w
prospects for 1929 look bright, and wc sincerely |?j
hope that the harmonious relations existing onig
wweses-ta
the council and board of school trustees will continue.

TIIER13 has been another blast from tho "Liberal''
press of Vancouver about thc shrinkage in place-
lilling on the part of thc local Calthful. It yet
remains a part of the political religion that Ottawa shall
reserve "patronage" of every hind to the order of the
local political committees; hut the press supporters ol
this condition with respect to Ottawa are imploring the
public to Join with them in seeing that the Conservative
quota of the population .excluded by Ottawa, shall no!
bo permitted any logment in provincial offices. As a
first step, it is suggested that Victoria shall adopt neutrals
tor ilie provincial service, or perhaps "Liberals" to
remain disguised until the time comes for characteristic
action. This demand is made by the virtuous Star, in
con neet lor with mean protest against the appoint men i
of a well qualified lady to a civil service post, the protest
being on the ground that she lias been n supporter of
tbe reigning party.
The other or low-brow organ of the party, concentrates
u"pon the demand that while its "Liberals' are excluded
from provincial office there shall he reserved for thetn
the control and patronage of tho municipalities. tto'ii

Office of the President,
Montreal, January 8, 1929
To Our Policyholders:
We have just completed another wonderful year, with profit earnings never
before equalled. Our Directors have
therefore inaugurated the principle of
allowing a Special Bonus on maturing
participating policies. The basis for 1929
may be. summarized as follows:
On policies ten years in force, maturing
by death or (on 'reserve dividend' policies)
by the expiry of the reserve dividend
period, a bonus of 10 per cent of the
reserve, increasing yearly to 15 per cent
on policies in force twenty years or longer;
on endowments, at maturity, a bonus of
10 per cent of the face value of policies
ten years in foice, increasing yearly to 15
per cent on policies in force twenty years
or longer.
Details will be given in the forthcoming annual report,
This special bonus is in addition to,
and independent of, the usual annual
profit distribution, the scale for which,
for the ninth consecutive year, will again
be increased.
We congratulate our members on this
happy announcement. It has been made
possible only by the large profits earned
on the securities selected for the investment of the Company's funds.
As ninety-five per cent of all surplus
earned by the participating assurances
accrues to our policyholders themselves,
they enjoy practical mutuality, combined
with the enterprise and stability of stock
management. The effect of this combination is evidenced by the results.

EUROPE KNOWS
CANADA BETTER
Says Investors See Dominion as
Worth  While
"Every year there is more intelligent conception ol Canada in the
minds of tho people, not only of tbe
Briiisli Isles, but of the European
countries in general", says C, J,
Smith, European vice-president of the
Canadian National Railways, who Is
Visiting Canada for the lirst. time in
two years, to discuss matters with
the Canadian National officials as
well as with officers of the shipping
organizations with which the Canadian National has Its traffic connrt ■
tfMi.    Ho  will  visit   tow  company'*
torritorios both In Canada aud in the
United States.
Mr. Smith said it would surprise
Canadians to learn how well thc principal characteristics of Canada were
now understood abroad. 'Tho visit
i»i Sir Henry Thornton to Europe during tho past year brought Canada to
.he front as never before, and people
at present are extremely sensible of
tho prosperity which exists in this
dominion .together with tlie opportttn*
Ities available Cor Investment hero.
'ihere is no chance of the Interest
In Canada diminishing. Tho activities
of the leading British financial men,
such as Lord Melchett and other leaders In mineral anil industrial fields
of development, are having their ot-
recl of assuring the European investor that Canada is really worth while
snd is likely to become mor« so,"

Speaking of the traffic and business
outlook as between Canada and the
British Isles nnd other European
countries, Mr. Smith stated that the
work of tho Canadian National System in developing both trade and travel, emigration and settlement, was
being constantly extended over Europe. During thg Inst year, he said, the
Canadian National had handled more
new settlers into Western Canada
than ever before, there being an In
crease or 2G por cent, over the figures
for the proceeding year.   "In addition
to this growing emigration traffic,
there Is a constant growth in the
freight handled by our system between j
Canada and Europe. In both direction and there is also a healthy growth
In tho tourist travel. The Canadian
National   is   represented   In   virtually
.every European country today, though
in the matter of attempting to provide satisfactory settlers for thc vacant lands of this dominion, our efforts are chiefly confined to securing
I British and Nordic people generally
and getting for Canada those Iraml-
becomo good  "While  tho   progress  woulu> appoar  questl,
i some times to be rather slow," he said
8," Mr, Smith "thora is nevertheless real progress,

"The Cannian railway

The fertilizing value of forest Utter, composed of fallen leaves aud
i wigs, has long heen recognized in
Europe, but in this country where we
have not bad io grow our wood, little
thought has been given to the noil on
which the trees grow. With the disappearance of the virgin stands and
our ultimate dependence on second
growth secured by either natural or
artificial means, every factor which
affects the rate of growth of the tlm-
bor becomes important.
A sillily of the forest leaf litter de-
posited by red and Jack pine in Midi- j
igan has just been completed by the
United  Stales   Forest Service  and   it
showed thai on the average, the annual di poBlt of m edles per acre weigh- j •"

The nitrogen content alone averaged
15 lbs, per acre, which is from one
