Golden Wedding
In the loveliest setting imagination
could portray or brush depict, a
unique event took place at their home
on the hanks of the Courtenay River
where, amidst a gathering representing the whole country-side, Mr. and
"Mrs, Alex. Urquhart celebrated their
golden wedding on Saturday afternoon last. It was a scene long to he
remembered by those present; from
the verandah of their lovely home,
looking across the placid river, Glaii-
urquhart Farm—where the couple
had spent almost half a century-
could be seen, nestling in beauty
against the rising hill, and its broad,
well cultivated acres stretching almost to the river; its widely known
herd of Jersey cowa dotting the pasture with their golden tints, and on
the lawn beside their home surrounded hy great shade trees, and trees
hearing their load of luscious fruit,
with flowers of every shade and hue,
gathered. A host of men and women—
the lovely gowns of the women lending dn added touch to the beauties of
■nature—surrounding and complimenting the aged couple on their fiftieth
wedding anniversary.
As they sat%thore, with their whole
family in attendance,—sons and
daughters, grandsons and granddaughters, —receiving . the heartfelt
■good wishes of nearly 300 men and
women, one could visualize the changes they had seen in their 50 years

The Cumberland Islander
FRIDAY,   AUGUST    19th.   1927
ONE of the most fatal maladies that afflicts
the present generation is a swelled head.
On all sides we are seeing evidence of this
dread disease. It is found among those of lowly
estate who are ashamed of their poverty and
blush for their calling as well as among those
who boast of their pedigree and are proud of their
wealth. In either case the victim is a snob, a
snob is a high-hatter and a high-hatter is a swelled head. It is all the same and it means that the
sufferer is a victim of false pride.
"Pride goeth before a fall" is one of the truest
sayings ever handed down through the ages. But
each one of us can prevent the fall if we are willing to hobble our pride.
There is a decent and commendable pride that
makes a man feel too respectable to listen to vile
gossip and stiffens his backbone when stiffening j
is needed, but this isn't the kind that causes
downfalls,   The kind that precedes disaster is the ]
common swelled head.
A decent pride will give a man ambition to j
achieve something and thus serve as a spur.   But!
a swelled hea-i is caused by something that was
achieved yesterday.
Never in your life have you seen a victim of
swelled head accomplish anything after he became a high-hatter. It simply isn't done. Why i
go through the trying ordeal and work yourself
into a sweat when you have already achieved I
success and are the wonder of your neighbors, i
That is the way a swelled reasons.
When you get that way the clock has struck |
twelve. Your career is finished. The future
offers nothing except the unprofitable business
of thinking about the past-
The smaller the mind, the smaller the success
required to cause a swelled head; the smaller the
circle in which you move, the smaller success required to cause it. But in every case the result
is the same.   When you get it you're a goner.
What are the symptons? They are unmistake-
able. A fool can recognize them and diagnose
the case correctly.
When you find yourself thinking certain people
are impudent; when you are irritated because you
aren't shown the respect to which you feel you
are entitled; when you want to sit always at the
head table or lead the procession; when you boast
of your wealth or your accomplishments. These
things are the symptons which mark the victim
of a swelled head.
THE medical profession has a code of ethics
which will not permit the doctor to advertise. The young physician must wait many
years to come into his own because the older
members forbid him to call attention to his ability
through advertising.
In this day of high-priced surgery we see no
reason why the prospective patient should not
be first assured of the surgeon's ability. The
patient takes a big chance when he lets some
other fellow cut a hole in his abdomen and go
hunting through his internal mechanism. We
would suggest that surgeons who have done
masterpieces in operating be permitted to tattoo
their names on the spot where the incision is
This private professional mark on a society
woman's epidermis would enable the woman to
boast of her India-ink signed masterpiece and

day; no one was ever turned awny
who needed help. Mr. Urquhart very
feelingly replied.
To the writer the gathering of old-
timers from all over the valley and
surrounding Islands to be photographed was a striking feature of the
afternoon. As they were grouped
around the central figures of the
afternoon's celebration, we looked on
and said If we knew their individual
stories und their names we could
write the history of Comox Valley;
but being a new comer, we could only
look on nnd try to estimate the years

When we heard Mr. Beckensell tell
how he arrived In the valley in 1872,
the year we were wrapped In swaddling clothes; and Mr. Swan, whose
golden wedding was celebrated three
years ago, tell how he saw Alex, go
off ln a canoe from Fanny Bay to

than listening to the tales of bygone
The well-known hospitality of the
Urquharts was never better exemplified than this fternnon, when a bevy
of ladles served to all present cake
and tea and other good things, and as
we left that scene, where we could

vehicle In question, one of the stages,
and under Ilia instructions, the driver
speeded up the car to 35 miles a.i
hour. He then applied the emergency
brake and it failed to work. He then
subjected the foot brake to a similar
test, using all his force, and the foot
brake failed to work. He then had
the driver take the stage to Pidcock
& *iWcKenzle's garage, where certain
adjustments were made to enable the
stage to resume Its trip to Nanaimo.
Mr. Wm. Dingwall, foreman mechanic at the Pidcock & McKenzie garage, said lie examined the car when
brought In. The emergency brake
was not working. Tlie foot-brake, of
hydraulic type, was also in poor
shape, one of the cylinders leaking.
In his opinion, the brakes were not
adequate. He made some adjustments
and put mora fluid in the reservoir.
For the defence, Charles Friend,
the mechanical superintendent for the
Union Stage Co., at Nanaimo, said
that the stages of the company were
thoroughly Inspected every day before leaving Nanaimo. The brakes
on this particular car were alright
when It left. On its return tho emergency brake was alright with the exception pf fluid from the hydraulic
brake cylinder, which had flowed over
the brake drum rendering it temporally useless, He washed this off with
gasoline. The brakes had been re-
lined less than u month previously.
Hc found one of the cylinders damaged, the cup having been blown out.
This would be done by a sudden ap.
plication of considerable force. Hydraulic brakes required very little
pressure to operate; If much force,
was used they would certainly blow I
Mr. J. K. McKenzie corroborated
the former witness's evidence as to
the manipulation of hydraulic brake?.

for the Legislature In Delta, contesting a seat as a supporter of Hou. Joseph   Martin,   who   had   come  from
Manitoba, and In his usual meteoric
fashion, had become a leading factor

, successfully to dispute with the old-
' est   parliamentarians   the   interpretation  of tlie rules.
In Ofiice
In the election of 1916, Mr. Oliver
was returned for the riding of Dewdney,   and  on  the   formation   of  the
Brewster   Ministry,   he  received   the
portfolios  of Railways and Agriculture.    The former post brought hlr.1
in close touch with the Pacific Great
Eastern   railway   question,   and   that
formed  the  hattie  ground  of  manv
sessions    from   1917   to the present
year.   In 1918. on the lamented deatli
of Mr. Brewster    while   on his way
home  from  Ottawa,  Mr.  Oliver  wus
; selected   by  the  Liberal  caucus  for
| the leadership, and the duties of his
J portfolios   were   reconstructed.     Mr.
. Barrow became  Minister of Agricul-
I ture,  and  later,  Mr.  Oliver  was  relieved  of the  portfolio of Railways.

The story of thc past ten years Is
too fresh in the public mind to require repetition, but suffice it to say
that Mr. Oliver had been more than
energetic In the discharge of his varied duties. In view of his early training, It was astonishing how he settled
down to the social side of a Premier's
activities, as well as the claims of tho
legislature and the numerous public
meetings which require so much at-
ention of Cabinet members.

Restoration' of Britain's coal industry, with the resultant re-employment of thousands of Idle miners, together with making that nation independent as an oil producer, is

were explained to members of the
fuel conservatoln committee of the
Shipping Board by II. A. Bradatreet,
representing an English syndicate
behind Hie invention.
Not only can crude oil and other
by-products be extracted from Britls.1
coal, but the residue can be utilized
as smokeless fuel in industrial plants
on shore and under marine boilers
aboard ships.
Mr. Bradstreet said the English
process for oil extraction has already
been used by some firms abroad, and
that one company has begun production on a fair-sized scale.
It was also stated that the Englhu
process already has heen tried out In
a small plant and an average of

him, as he neither had birth certiflate
passport nor other papers to identify
"With his companion, Wark the.e-
fore took a train, Intending to cross
France and try to reach England.
When they reached the Italian border,
however, they were stopped by Italian
border police, and as they could produce no passports, were held as suspected French spies. Three days
later, they were released by the Italian police and passed over the French
border, where they were immediately
arrested by tlie French border police
and held under heavy guard, as
trouble was then brewing between
France and Italy. At the end of two
days they were again Teleased and
proceeded to La Havre where Want
again went before the British Consul.
Here ugaiu lie was told tliat nothing
could be done for him, so lie went ui
work for three weeks unloading cojI
vessels. He then got passage to Cardiff on an English ship, and arriving
though the crew were being paid off,
hfs pay was refused because he had
papers which would admit him
to  Britain.
On February 5th, Wark states, he
was brought before the Immigration
authorities and was sent to Londoi
where he was further examined. He
was refused permission to visit the
Canadian High Commissioner's Office
he claims, and also permission to
cable his pifrents at Dobliington, near
Owen Sound, Ontario, to establish
Ills Identity. On the following day
he was deported to Dunkirk, France,
for having entered Britain without
proper   passports.
''From Dunkirk" Wark State, "1
took the train to Antwerp and after
I had been there four days antl my
funds had given out. 1 was arrested
by tlle police and brought before a
magistrate. As near as I could understand through the interpreter 1
was sentenced to eight days on a
vagrancy charge, and at the end oi
that time with other prisoners I was
taken by the police of Heegatraeten,
put In prison clothes, fed on prison
fare and put to work on a farm,
under heavy guard, being promised
wages which about equalled one Canadian dollar per year. I was given
to understand thut 1 was simply being
held there until it could be arranged
to send me back to Canada. On May
3rd I had become tired of this, however, and with a Czecho-Slavak fellow-prisoner, made my escape while
working in ilie fields and ran for the
border of Holland, whicli we reachc 1
at seven o'clock in the evening.
There we found border police on
patrol and to escape them had to
swim a river. After reaching Dutch
soil we travelled ten kilometers and
came to a town, where we were immediately arrested. We were returned
to Belgium but not banded over to
the police, and managed to make our
way back into Holland again. We
reached the town of Dorp and wero
again arrested and returned across
the Belgian border. Again we crossed
to Holland, this time reaching tlie
border on our hands and knees at
night, and hoping to cross Holland
to Germany. We got within 30 kilo
meters of that country when we were
again caught and taken before the
Burgomaster at Barnstadt. lie took
an Interest In our story, provided
us with boots and socks, both of
which we were without, and finally
sent us on to Cologne. There 1 went
to the British Consul, who after a
lengthy interview, gave me train fare
a. fur as Hamburg. There 1 visited
another consul otficial who said: Well
you appear to have walked all across
Belgium; I would suggest you walk
hack   again.
"1 then went to the city police,
who gave me a passport allowing
me to stay in the city for six days,
and advising the Consul that lie
musl get me out of Germany within
thai period. At the end nf five days
I was culled and told that I was to
lie placed aboard a British ship sailing for Canada. When I got ou tlu*
boat I found she wns sailing lo North
Shields. England, thence lo Buenos
Aires and then back to Hamburg.
In spite of the captain's threat lo
put me in irons for attempting desertion, I managed to escape from them
by subsisting on bread and cheese,
tramped my way to London. 280
miles, In two weeks. At tlle end of
that walk I was again arrested hy
London police and sent to a workhouse, where Ihe condition of my
feet and legs was such that a doctor
ordered me kept in bed for a week
before I was allowed to visit Canada
When 1 finally reached Canada
House I was told that nothing could
he done for me. I finally got them
to cable to my people, hut at the ond
of a week was told there was no reply to the cable. Another week later
I was taken III with diptherla anil
I tonsllltls nnd sent to a  hospital for
ill two weeks and then back to the work-
. house lo recuperate. When 1 retum-
led to Canada House I found a cable
waiting which established my identity,
but I was Informed that there were
no funds to take care of stranded
seamen and they could not help me.
One of the secretaries did, however,",
give mc two shillings to keep me going until there was a reply to a cable
they had sent asking Ottawa to repatriate me. I was still in part of
the rags of prison clothing 1 had
worn when escaping from Hoogstrae-
ton. and I was moved from the workhouse to another place. After three
days Ottawa cabled that I was to be
repatriated nnd the High Commissioner's Ofllce then provided ine with i
pair of punts and Jacket, second hand,
and informed me tliat I was to be
returned to Canada on a passenger
ship. An ex-Canndlan soldier, wl.o
was staying at the same place, gave
me shoes and socks and a shirt, and
later I learned thut I was to return
to Cunada on the S.S. Ausouia, under
the Immigration Act and that I would
be expected to refund the passage
On July 2;lrd I embarked on the
Ausonla at Southampton and arrived
at Quebec on July 31st. There I was
met by it. B. .Maxwell, of the Colonisation Department, Canadian .National Railways, who fixed me up ut the
Salvation Army hostel for the night,
and next morning, with others In the
office, provided enough funds to buy
my food and bring me to Montreal,
with a letter to E. J. Sauve, of the
Colonization Department there. Ar.
riving in .Montreal. 1 went to .Mr.
Sauve's office and was immediately
offered a farm job at Lacolle, Que,—
and I'm going there on the first train
for it looks like a good chance to
re-establish myself after the kicking
around i have had since December
loth lasl.
And my case is not a solitary one.
In the prison at Hoogstraeten there
were three Canadians, with birth cer-
tilicates and discharges, all held lie-
cause they have not proper passport.!
and unable to secure help from tho
British Consul us 1 was. It Is for
them that 1 want to bring this matter I
to the attention of Canadians rather
than for myself—for my troubles are
over; I'm hack in Canada and I've
got a job."
