Tragic Death Of
Little Girl On
Union Bay Rd.
COURTENAY, • March 15. A very
aad tragedy occurred on Tuesday
afternoon when Dorothy, youngest
daughter of Mr. anil .Mrs. Harry F.
Loggie, who reside on the Union Bay
road, met almost Instant death. It
appears that the child was holding on
to the underneath part of a wagon
loaded with hay, and in some way
became dislodged. It ls surmised that
a wheel struck the side of her head,
which would doubtless cause immediate loss of consciousness. The wagon
which belongs to Mr. Jas. Marriott,
was being driven hy a young man
named Carter, who was quite unaware
that a tragedy had taken place so
close to liim. Mr. Jack Praln, driver
■of the Royal Standard Feed truck,
passed over the road behind the load
cf liny and saw the little body motionless on the road with a severe wound
on tlle side of the head and bleeding
from moutli and nose. The child was
still alive, aud he placed her gently
in a car which conveyed her to the
Provincial Police station. Dr. McKee
was called but tlle little girl was be
yond human help.

Chinese Nationalists
Commemoration
Gathering
On Sunday, March 13, the Chinese
Nationalist League held their second
annuargatlicring to honor the memory of Dr. Sun Ynt Son, tlie flrst
President of the Republic of China,
and who was at the time of his death
president of lhe Chinese Nationalist
League. A large number of the local
Chinese residents were present, and,
headed by the Cumberland City Band,
paraded through Chinatown, and in
the streets gave a most impressive
chant or call for the safety and peace
of China, before entering the Chinese
Nationalist League Hall to hear addresses from representatives of different Chinese organizations,
Mr. Peter Chu Kong Kai, prominent
member of tho Chinese Nationalist
League, explained the object and aims
of the League and emphasized the fact
that enemies of tiie Chinese Nationalist League have spread tlie Impression
that this organization is Bolshevik in
its alms. The speaker denied this ln
the strongest terms. The Chinese
Nationalist League is seeking the
cancellation of the unequal treaties
that exist between the Republic and
various countries, and arc eager io
be friendly with any country that
shows willingness to be fair nnd just
in their dealing with China.
Mr. Peter Chu Informed lhe audience that some years ago. whilst lu
Canton, he had been arrested and
thrown Into prison by enemies of the
League. On this occasion, he had
been saved from probnhic death by
the Intervention of the British and
American consuls, who secured his
release.
Throughout the whole of his life,
Dr. Sun Yat Son tried to bring about
modern conditions nnd democratic
government In China, and died nftyr
forty years of fruitful work for his
country.
Tho constitution of the Chinese
Nationalist League embodies the following alms:
1. To maintain the unity of politics.
3. To expand local self-Oovernment.
3. To enforce the assimilation of
the Race.
4. To adopt Ihe best policies of
Socialism.
6. To maintain national peace.
Several other speakers addressed
tho audience. It wus claimed that
there was a rapidly growing Interest
being shown In the Chinese Nationalist League amongst thc loral Chinese,
and that In the near future the Chinese of this district wlll bo united, instead of being divided  Into factions.

Fire Chief Explains
Aid. Parnham explained at thc
Council meeting on Monday evening
that In order to prevent any adverse
criticism of the Fire Department, hc
wished it to become known that the
difficulty experienced last Saturday
evening in starting the chemical truck
was In no wise due to the poor condition of the truck's battery. He said
that the driver on this particular
occasion was to blame, as the Peerless ls a difficult car to handle when
starting, and the carburetor floods
easily. This was what happened on
Saturday.
In reply to a question, Chief Parnham said that six members of the
Fire Department are taking day3
about at learning to handle this particular truck, so thut in the event ot
fires there will be no dearth of experienced drivers. The hose truck, a.
Chalmers car, Is more easily handled
than the Peerless chemical truck.

Urge Farmers And
Sportsmen To
Get Acquainted
COURTENAY, March 14.—Major
Furber, chief game inspector of the
Province, gave a very Interesting talk
in the Agricultural hall on Friday
evening. In spite of stormy weather,
there was a good turn out of farmers
and sportsmen. In his remarks, Major
Furber showed the need of farmers
and sportsmen getting together on
their problems and showing consideration to each other, and pointed out
the folly of extreme views in either
case.
The great value of the fur hearing
animals of the province was clearly
shown and the necessity of conservation stressed. The speaker compared
the value of B. C. furs with that of
the State of Louisiana, which at the
present moment Is $6,300,000. This
southern state aimed to bring its fur
revenue up to $10,000,000 annually,
und to keep it at that ligure. If
Louisiana could do this, British Columbia, with about seven times the
area, with a more northern latitude
and finer quality furs, should eventually produce furs to the annual value
of $77,000,000, he said. The Province
had paid out over $41,000 in bounties
on cougar, wolves, coyotes and crows
during the past year. The good done
to crops by pheasants-and'game birds
considerably outweighed the damage,
tlle speaker thought. In some areas,
farmers requested the introduction of
these birds as a help ln keeping down
pests. He wanted farmers who applied for permission to kill pheasants
out of season to carefully examine
the crops of the birds and to preserve
the contents, as sometimes the crops
were full of cutworms.
Referring to the damage done by
deer, of which there had heen several
complaints in the district, the speaker
said that pit-lamping should only be
resorted to in the same way that
poison is used. Neighbors should bc
warned In order to eliminate the danger of shooting children, adults ur
domestic live stock. It should only
he a last resort, and then only under
Ihe supervision of a game warden.
Referring to the Game Act, he drew
attention to some of the more interesting amendments. These included the
curtailing of the bag limits for grizzly bears and mountain sheep from
three of each to two head. With a
view to the protection of the lonely
trapper, it was proposed to encourage
trap license holders to mark the skins
of animals with their own private
mark. By doing this there would be
less likelihood for the lonely trapper
to hc ht-jacked.
There was no doubt that farmers
had sometimes cause to complain of
the method of hunters on the farmer's
premises. Damage done, he thought,
was not so much by local residents
as by Itinerant sportsmen.
Several questions were asked both
hy the farmers and the sportsmen
present, seeking Information on the
Game Act, and numerous Instances
were related. Mr. Keith McKenzie,
secretary of the Comox District Gun
Club, voiced a desire for closer cooperation between the sportsmen nnd
the farmers. Capt. G. R. Bates, who
acted as chairman, was willing to go
some length In helping tlle sportsman,
hut wanted the hunters to make good
damage done when on his property.
At the close of the meeting, which
was held under the auspices of the
Comox Agricultural and Industrlul
Association, a hearty vote of thanks
was tendered the speaker.
9B
Annual Masquerade Ball
Of Local Fire Department
Celebrated St. Patrick's Day
The annual masquerade ball of the
Cumberland Volunteer Fire Department, held in the Ilo-llo hall last
evening, drew an unprecedented number of spectators but there was a
surprising dearth of masked dancers.
Many of the costumes, however, were
very pretty and as usual the comics
turned out In force, giving rise to
much mirth by their antics. The Fire
Department was imitated in an exaggerated manner by Mesdames Covert,
Frelone and Miller, whose cotsumes
were complete from oilskins down to
hand cart, with its reel of garden hose.
The trio deservedly took the prize for
best comic group.
| The judges, Miss M. Brown, Mrs. C.
Spooner, Mr. W. McLellan and Mr. J.
Aston, had rather an easy time in
awarding their prizes on account of
lack of competition in most of the
classes. Their decisions were roundly applauded by the many spectators.
Following are the names of the successful maskers:
Best dressed lady. Mrs. H. MacDonald; best dressed gentleman, Mr. Val.
Dalby; best national character (lady),

The ball was conducted with the
efficiency and order which generally
characterizes social events under thc
auspices of the Fire Department.
After the grand march, the floor was
given over to the spectators and
dancing continued until early this
morning. Plump's Orchestra supplied
the music.
Fred. Oliver Trapped In Burning Shack
Death Ensues Shortly After Admittance To The Local Hospital
Seriously burned about the upper
part of the body as the result of being
trapped in a fire in his shack near
No. 5 Mine, Mr. Frederick Oliver passed away ln the Cumberland General
Hospital in the early hours of Sunday
morning. The Are occurred about 9
o'clock Saturday evening, and In
answer to the alarm, the local Fire
Department made a hurried run to the
scene. It was not realized that Mr.
Oliver was ln the shack until the
flames near the only door had been
fought down, and then his body was
discovered on the floor, his clothing
aflame. All efforts of the Hospital
staff to save his life were of no avail,
so severe were the burns.
Mr. Oliver was seen in Cumberland
at about 8:30 o'clock, and must have
just returned to his cabin when the
Are occurred. It is surmised that in
some way the oil lamp was overturned
i anil the aged man, in attempting to
| quell the flames, was trapped before
thought of escape entered his mind.
; The cabin was a small frame struc-
I ture, built by the deceased gentleman
i some time ago In order that he might
live near bis work. He was employed
I ln the lamp cabin of No. 5 Mine.
Mr. Oliver has been a resident of
! this city for several years, but lately
has kept very much to himself, living
almost the life of a recluse. He was
72 years old, and Is known to have a
son and one sister In England. Little
else is known of his life. The funeral
was of a private nature, from the
home of Mr. and Mrs. R. Freeburn.
West Cumberland, who were friends
of the deceased. ***
Provncial Police made an Investigation of the Are and Mr. Oliver's death,
and lt was decided that no Inquest
was necessary.
REVISED ESTIMATES FOR
NEW COURSES PASSED
Interested onlookers at Monday's
meeting of the City Council were the
pupils of Miss T. A. Gallivan, Div. II
of. the Cumberland Public School.
These pupils are studying Civics, and
were present for the purpose of seeing how municipal government is
carried on.
When Mayor Maxwell called the
meeting to order, all members ot the
Council were present, and after the
usuul routine business of adopting thu
previous minutes, several communications wero read. Of these, the most
Important was from the local Board
of School Trustees, enclosing revised
estimates for manual training and
home economics. The accompanying
letter explained that the Trustees had
received the assurance of tlie Dept.
of Education that the grant for the
latter half of 1926 would be forwarded
In a few days and that It was raada
out on the old basis, without any
deductions as had been Intimated.
This assurance from the Government,
the result of the efforts of Inspector
J. M. Patterson, enabled the Council
to agree that manual training and
home economics could now bo cstab
llshed here without materially Increasing the rate of school taxation,
as seemed at flrst thc only solution to
the difficulty. It may bc found that
the school  rate  will have to be In
creased a few mills, but it Is likely
that the finance committee will be
able to offset this by a proportionate
decrease In the general rate.
The revised estimates were made up
as follows: salaries and transportation, $1,585; equipment und cost of
providing room for home economics,
$1,464; making a total of $3,049 as
compared with $4,778 estimated previously. Of the above sums, the
amount for salaries and transportation was passed as supplementary to
the ordinary estimates, while the
balance went through as extraordinary expenditure, upon condition that
the room referred to bo erected on
existing school property.
The passing of these estimates
settles the "manual training question"
insofar as Cumberland Is concerned,
but Courtenay Is yet experiencing a
little difficulty in straightening out
the matter.
Realizes Ambition
Charlie Murray has been preparing
for the role of Dan McFadden in
"McFadden's Flats" for thirty years.
The noted First National comedian
says that he has always wanted to
play the part. The original play
opened In New York on the stage,
and It has always been his ambition
to some day create the role of Dan
McFadden on the screen. The picture comes to the llo-Ilo this Friday
and Saturday.

THE TRUTH ABOUT
THE CLIFFE FltiHT
Newspaper reports of the recent
light ln Seattle between Roy Cliffe
and Roper, in which the latter was
awarded the verdict iu the flrst round,
have spread the impression that Cliffe
quit because he was afraid lo fight.
The Islander refused to believe this,
and took immediate stepB to get a true
version of what actually took place.
Here it is:
Roper Is the Bort of "wild man*'
boxer who throws his long arms
about at random in the hope of connecting. This wns how ho came out
ot his comer nt the opening gong, anil
in trying to avoid one of these wild
swings, Roy slipped on the canvass
and went* to his hand and knees. He
waited In tliat position for a few seconds, as Roper was standing over him
and Cliffe naturally expected the referee to push him back. Hut before
the arbiter could Interfere, Roper
swung to Roy's eye. while he wus still
on the mnt. and closed that oplie.
Then the referee promptly slopped lu
and awarded the light to Cliffe, Hut
Roy, nlthnuKh his eye wns closed, fell
that this was not fair to tho cash
customers and refused to take the
decision, asking Instead that the Aght
go on. Accordingly time was taken
out and the local boy's eye attended
to. But thc fight had no flonnor gm
under way again, when Roper crashed
a right to Roy's groin, and this time
he went down badly hurt from the
foul. The referee was again going In
award him the decision, when Roper's
brother, his manager, stepped into
tho ring, nrguod for some time, and
finally persuaded thc official to i-also
Roper's hand. Medical examination
afterward showed tliat Cliffe wns
partially paralyzed by the low blow,
and as o result the boxing commission
Is to take steps to have the decision
reversed.
Roy Is at present In Courtenny, and
tells us that he and Roper are re-
matched for Wednesday. March 80th,
at Bollliighiim. This fact alone ought
to be enough to convince tllc local
boy's critics that he Is anything but
"yellow," as some of them have snld.
City Decides That
Lump Sum Is The
Wiser Payment
Occupying tlie attention of the City
Council for some time at Monday's
meeting, was a communication from
the local Hospital Board to the effect
that the annual grant Is now due.
According to Provincial law, cities
are required to pay Hospitals tho sum
of 70c per patient day for patients
residing within the city, or as an alternative, a lump sum in any amount
satisfactory to both city and Hospital.
Last year Cumberland chose the latter
course, paying $600, and on checking-
lover it was found that by this means
something like $400 had been saved.
In view of tills fact, it was decided
at Monday's meeting to pursue the
same policy this year, and therefore
a lump sum of $700 is to be tendered
the Hospital Bonrd, the additional
$100 being added at tho request of the
Hospital for some such Increase.
The Salvation Army asked the
Council, by letter, for g monetary
donation towards the Army's new
Hospital, and it was decided that the
cause was worthy of support, therefore $25 wus voted. A similar sum
was also donated for this purpose
lust year. A renewal of the insurance policy on the Ore (hose) truck
was ueceplod In the nmount of $1200.
which Is $200 less than last year.
The report of the finance committee
showed a debit in tlie school account
of $670.17, and $1,000 is therefore to
be transferred from the general
account  to cover this overdraft.
A few cases of chicken pox and
measles  were  reported  hy  AM. J.  W.
Williams, of die Health Committee,
ultlioiigh very mild in most instances.
To curb a possible epidemic, tbe
health Officer hail closed down Div.
XI, Miss Robertson's class in the
Public School, fin* a  week.

There are few things in life that are uglier than
intolerance. The man who becomes irritated and
enraged when somebody else is saying something
contrary to his pet beliefs is
INTOLERANCE a dangerous man. The intolerant professes to believe in
free speech but only so long as the free speech
coincides with his own views. We all know men
of this type. They cannot listen to opposition
without being angered and the only thing that
keeps them from stopping the mouth of one who
disagree.- with them is lack of power. They have
im consideration tor anyone who says, "Don't expect me to accept your opinion unless you can
furnish proof; I want to get at the truth." The
intolerant has no use for a thinking man who
will not shut his eyes and accept ready-made
creeds, ideals and standards.
It is a wholesome sign of the times to note the
rebellion against intolerance. Even the boys and
girls of today are no longer willing to take their
elders' views of life without question; They demand to be shown; they ask for proof; they wish
to see both sides of a question and make their
own judgment. They arc, in short, open minded.
Youngsters who swallow a belief whole simply
because it is wished upon them by their elders,
are certain in later life lo become intolerant of
criticism. That is they will hate questioners
simply because they will not know how to answer
questions.
Ni wspapers are also growing in fairness and (J
intelligence and now. most of them will prim '
articles contrary to their "policy." You can
t) ist such i ewspapers. You can trust a public
man who'will listen with equal patience to both
si-les: you can trust the private citizen who does
not flush with annoyance when you disagree with
him; you can trust the future to young people
who say in effect: "Don't expect me to accept
your version unless you can furnish proof."

the stock market and gave us a tip on a good thing
that was bound to advance rapidly.
We stopped to speak to him, wondering what
had brought about the terrible change in his
appearance. We found him bitter, discouraged,
a decided failure. Inquiry developed the fact
that his plan to get rich quick on easy money had
failed. His speculations had turned out bad.
His efforts to recover losses at the race track led
him to plunge on borrowed money. His home
was gone, his wife had left him, he was down and
out and he hated everybody. He had sacrificed
success, home, everything on the altar of greed.
He wanted money and he thought he had discovered a way to get it without giving anything
in return. He flew high and he fell fiat because
he had provided himself with no parachute in
which to make the inevitable drop.
0 Man! If you are earning and receiving
good wages—if you have a happy family and enjoy reasonable hours for reading and pleasure—
if you are saving a little cash for that time when
the rainy days come, you are doing well; and it's
always well to let well enough alone. If you have
the itch to get rich quick and the inclination to
buy some fake stock, or to back the ponies, or to
sit in a poker game, have your head examined,
for these are the flrst steps downhill.

Five clever newsboys formed a

to lay in a good stock of papers,
which they rattled off like hot cakes
and then figured up their accounts as
follows: Tom Smith sold one paper
more than one-quarter of the whole

paper more than one-quarter ot the
remainder. Ned Smith sold one paper
more than one-quarter of what was
left, and Charley Jones disposed of

NEW C. N. R. LINES FOR ALBERTA
The Minister ot Railways is this
Session asking Parliament, on bo-
half of the Onna'.'.inn National Railways, for authority to construct
sixty-eight miles of new lines within thc Province of Alberto, The
first of these lines is a cut-off be-
tween Brettinn an:l Clover Bnr. just
east of Edmonton. Th's cut-olf,
eleven miles in length, will make
possible shorter nn:l faster routing
ot freight between Edmonton anil
Cnmrose and points beyond. At
present trains between Edmonton
and Cnmrose run over the circuitous
route through the City of Elmnn-
ton, dropping down into the Vnllcy
of the North Saskatchewan River
nnd crossing thc river nn the low-
level highway bridge to climb again
on a very steep giadicnt out of the
valley to the top of thc hink—passenger trains then bncking into thc
South Edmonton station.
Passenger trains now take 45
minutes to go from Edmonton station to South Edmonton station.
Freight trains nre limited to very
light loads, partly on account of the
heavy gradients on the line and because the motive power is limited
by the capacity of the low-level
bridge. The route via thc new proposed cut-off will save eleven miles
In distance for all trains, and over
nndiour in running time for passenger trains. Large economies in
operating expenses can be made.
The other two lines that it is proposed to build in Alberta are in the
northern part of the Province and
are for colonization and development purposes.     One rmw la an
easterly direction from Elk Point
for a distance of nineteen miles,
traversing gno-l land nnd terminat-
n,''at the North Saskatchewan
River. Access to the siuth side of
the river is thus afforded to settlers in the district, and there is a
considerable area of good land on
the south side of the river which
will bc tributary to the new line. It
hns been anticipated that tliis line
would be extended to meet the
branch proposed to run from
Spruce Lake, Saskatchewan, in a
westerly direction but thc joining
up of these two lines is nit required
at the present stage of development
an I traffic roufng. It is felt that
the new line is justified by the saving of rond haul to the settlers
and the creat'on of development
work in the areas served.
Thc second of the colonization
and development lines proposed is
from Ashmont to Bonnyvillc, a distance of thirty-eight miles. Along
this lino, as pronosr-d, there is much
good land, some highly developed, but
for the most part only partially developed. Beyond Bonny ville, east and
north and as far as the Cold Lake
district, there nre areas settled and
partly developed. Lack of railway
communication is, however, hampering further development on account of the long rond haul on farm
products. The whole district, north
and cast of the proposed branch, ia
susceptible of agricultural development, with the exception of a r«-
latively small percentage of sandy
country. The precipitation is ample
for train growing and nixed farm*

THE DISMAL PAST
That charming body, the First Year,
otherwise known as the Receiving
Class, are nursing their wounded
dignity. It appears that the principal
of the Public School had unwittingly
sent a notice to this august assemblage, threatening dire punishment if
they were caught playing that exhilarating game, "Here We Come Gathering Nuts In May." They spluttered,
expostulated and actaully wept. "Nuts
in May, indeed I Such an insult!"
For had they not left such juvenile
pleasures behind along with their
dismal ignorance, painfully acquired
In their infancy, le, Publlc School?
And were they not about to enter
thnt Holy of Holies, Matric? To what
avail was their forbidding dignity, it
it was to be so scandalously outraged
by their dark and dismal past being
raked over? But their wounds will
heal with the passing years. Nevertheless they will bury this dark and
spooky past with great gusto and
ceremony next week. The Very
Keverend and Virtuous Harold Con-
rod will officiate. "Tuba' Davis will
be the "band."

STUDENTS TO ACT THItlLLER
We are presenting to the patient
citizens of Cumberland a synopsis of
"Dizzy Daniel," the picture which will
appear at the Ilo-llo next month.
This thrilling tale was written by
Marion Brown and Barbara Grunt.
The story Is a real dime novel thriller
abounding In pathos, dry humor, conflicting emotions, elections, and very
realistic "movie" escapes from death.
Tlie scene is laid in the environs of
the busy metropolis of Slumberland.
The following Is a "disclosure" of the
actors' characters.
"Dizzy Daniel," a city slicker fresh
from Patagonia, who takes the role
of a much belated hero. "Dizzy" has
black hair and large, soulful, eyes.
Archie Dick plays this difficult role.
"Hlppomenes IfjcSwoggle," the bold,
bad villain, who ls so slippery that
he can't stand up and so tough he
got married. He leads old Dizzy a
merry dance. This role ls played by
that gentle youth, "Oats" Horwood.
He ls a bad case and a worse actor.
Marjorie Brown takes the part of
Henrietta Simkins, a widow, fair, fat
and forty, who has an eye on Hamburger Bill.
Last, but not least, "Rosie Cohoe,"
the beautiful and soul inspiring heroine, who Is often saved from the dirty
clutches of McSwoggle by Dizzy.
Myrtle Calnan plays this part.
"Hamburger Bill," a strong, silent
man from the wide open spaces,
accomplice to the villain and whose
pastime is dodging marriage. This ls
played by S. Davis (playing bis tuba
solo.)
SPORTING THRILLS
(A. D., Sports Editor)
Our own version of the future:
Well!    Well!    Well!
You can't tell;
W-e might lick Nanaimo all to—
Well!    Well!    Well!
|    The  Band Hall was the scene  of
; two of the best basketball games.of
j the   season   on   Friday   last.    Matt
Stewart started the ball rolling in an
I exhibition game between the Nanaimo
I H. S. girls and the Cumberland H. S.
i girls  at 7:30 p.m.   This tussle  was
, packed full of thrills, as both teams,
j although shooting poor, were continually  spinning the  ball around  the
ring of the basket.   After about five
[minutes of play, Myrt. Calnan, Cumberland's speedy right forward, tipped
the ball Into  the   net   for   Uie   first
counter.   On the resumption of play
ln the second half, Nanaimo equalized
with a pretty shot.   Now the battle
royal   was   on.     Cumberland's   forwards checked the striving forwards
of the Hub City as they had never
checked before.   The game came to
a halt at full time with a tied score.
2-2.    After   considerable   discussion,
overtime resulted in a win for Nanaimo at the hands of her rangy center.
The final score was 4-2.
*   <3>   *
At precisely 8:30, the united boys'
teams   took   the   floor.    The   game
started fast but ended faster.   Nanaimo opened the scoring in the early
stages of the game, but tbe score was
soon equalized by Marlnelli, who put
In a magnificent shot.   With the count
tied,  both  teams  settled down  to a
scientific brand ot basketball, rather
than the rough and tumble which Is
| usually played In this district by the
intermediate teams.   At half time the
score stood 10-8 in favor of Nanaimo.
With the resumption  of play, the
visitors shot four in succession and
It looked bad for us, but Conrod opened up and with the help ot Hill and
Marlnelli,   raised   the   home   team's
total.   Cliffe, Courtenay's representa-
| tlve on the team, played a magnificent
| game, holding well in check the star
I right   forward   of  the   visitors.   The
I game ended in a flying finish with the
I score 19-18 In Nanaimo's favor.
I In the first stages of the game,
Randall, Nanaimo center, had the
misfortune to break a finger, but be
would not give up, and finished the
game in great pain.
Nanaimo won the football game ln
the afternoon by a score of 7-0.
After the games, the Cumberland
H. S. entertained Nanaimo as a social
and dance In the Anglican hall.
Nanaimo left for home about 10:30
but did not arrive there until 9 a.m.
Saturday. Some speed record! For
some unknown (?) reason, Nanaimo
seemed reluctant to leave this fair
city, but the real cause was the driver
of the car. In his haste to enter tho
sheep-fold he stripped his gears at

We admit that when writing on this
subject that we are straying on unstable ground, and moreover this
article will not be free from possible
errors.
The one distinction of several that
man has from the other primates ls
that he believes in a god of some description. Tbe more recent religious
are personal as contrasted with the
older; that is, they aim at personal
salvation and Immortality. The older
religions were social, that la, the
divinity was of the city, state or province and the Individual was considered uext. Practically all religions have
an association with a sacrifice. It ls
interesting to note how this came
about. In the early Neolithic times
(when man actually reaped before he
sowed) the harvest time was one of
sacrifice. A young person of pure-
ness and high birth was chosen, for
this was regarded as an honor, and
sacrificed with the highest honors of
the tribe accorded him. It la merely
an entanglement ln tbe primitive
mind.
Now we come to the wonderful sixth
century when mankind was beginning
to awake. There appeared at tbls
time, three men whose teachings were
to Influence millions. They were
Jesus, Budda and Confucius. We will
take Confucius first. He was a Chinese teacher who travelled about
China teaching the Ideal of a better
Iiic. He was concerned with personal
conduct as Budda was concerned with
tlie forgetfuluess of self desires. He
died ii disappointed man, but although
he did not realize It, his doctrine had
a profound Influence on the Chinese.
Confucius' plain doctrine did not lend
Itself to the distortions of the doctrine
of his contemporary, Lao Tsc.
Gautama lludila taught knowledge
by the usual Indian method of axel-
ism, but to the horror ot his disciples
ho abandoned It, declaring that the
mind Is stronger when the body is
healthy. His doctrine was a subtle
one and became sadly distorted when
he died. In fact, Ills immediate followers did not understand It. He
taught the banishment ot self desire
and then the soul would attain serenity, Ncrvana. Man has always preferred the teaching confused and so
hidden by fantastical legends and
beliefs to the simple moral effect. In
this regard Christianity is not Immune. Before we go Into Christ, we
wlll show how men's minds were prepared for the Hebrew prophecy.
When the Aryans Invaded the early
civilizations, their gods and worship
must adapt themselves to the new
conditions or disappear. Fear of the
disruption of the observances of routine and mystical contemplation dominated the pre-Aryan mind. Their
gods appear monstrous and illogical
to us. But to their minds, gods had
a reality as if seen In a profound
dream.   Thus  so  long  as  conquests

were between peoples of the same
religions and social habits, the gods
were reconciled by assimilation of
gods so alike in character they were
identical; they merely assumed another name. This is called theocrasia.
This continued over a wide area and
then when the Hebrews announced
the advent of a Righteous God of all
earth, men were ready to accept It.
Hitherto the early gods were Identified with nature and in nature. Now
there was to be a God outside and
above nature. Such is our belief today.
Jesus of Nazareth was a teacher,
wandering about the country, living
by hand to mouth and teaching a
revolutionary doctrine of the Kingdom of Heaven and love of universal
brotherhood. His doctrine was socialistic and the Jews were dismayed
when he attacked their established
Ideas and swept away their petty beliefs and prejudices. So much did His
teachings jar the established Ideas
that men could not grasp the full
significance. But as the personality
of Gautama was distorted, so was
Jesus.' He is always represented as
stiff, clean and motionless. This is
enough to distort Him In the eyes of
the vulgar and give rise to fantastic
beliefs. There is no doubt today wc
do not follow His doctrine. We could
not.
Our minds can no more grasp the
I idea ot a Heaven than they can the
j immensity of a  million  miles;   It Is
j beyond our faculties.     Tlic question
1 may arise, "why was not Christianity
taught to tho whole world Instead of
being reserved lo the peoples In the
Holy  Land?"   Because  thc  world   ls
composed of diversified races, differ
ent lo each other In morals, temperament, environment and other conditions whicli Influence peoples.   They
formed a religion suited to their environment and temperament, and not
to others.   We are apt to minimize
other races, forgetting that thc human
racos Intermingle freely and arc more
or   less   related   to  tbc  other.    Thc
same applies to religion; we aro too
fond of sneering and laughing at thc
religious beliefs of others aud thinking our own Christian faith thc only
one in which one can find favor In
God   and   salvation   from   Hell.    By
what right do wc, ot this so-called
true   und   righteous   faith,  have  any
more claim to divine preference than
others?   Other people think our fallh
Is futile, superstitious, corrupted and
Its adherents damned, and the Christ-
Inns return the compliment.   Some of
us firmly believe Christ Is the son of
God and of the Kingdom of Heaven.
j Docs not thc Infidel believe thc same
I and has tho same assurance from thc
originator of his creed?   So there you
I arc.   Now,   which   Ib  right?   Let  us

"HELL'S HIGHROAD"
TYPICAL OF JULIAN
Build "McFadden's Flats"
Hupert Julian, who directs I.eatricc
Joy in the DeMille supervised production, Hell's Highroad," which shows
at the Gaiety Theatre on Tuesday,
March 22, attributes his success as a
director to the fact that before he
became a director he was a scenarist,
and it Is said, a successful one.
His training along this line gave
him an Invaluable sense of story
values and plot proportions. The
sureness and evenness which char-
acetrize the delicate situations in
"Hell's Highroad," and which are
typical of this director In all his former productions, are second nature
to him.
"Hell's Highroad" is a succession of
situations, each one crowding close
upon the other. From the tense
drama which predominates the story
at the crisis, down to the apparently
insignificant detail of a run in a poor
girl's stocking, each is awarded the
treatment its importance demands.
MIX GOES BACK TO
HIS COWBOY HAUNTS
The results of Tom Mix's career In
motion pictures were never more
strikingly brought out than in his
recent trip to Arizona where be filmed "Tony Runs Wild." his latest Fox
Films thriller which shows at the Ilo-
llo on Tuesday, March 22nd, and at
the Gaiety on Wednesday, March 23.
Seventeen years ago, Mix decided
to quit the cowboy business to take
a turn at the movies. He was employed at tlip Circle Dot ranch, a big
cattle outl'it owned by "Tom" Campbell, later governor of Arizona, with
headquarters in the wild horse country near the pueblos of the ancient
Cliff Dwellers along the Apache trail.
Tom announced his Intentions to
his broncho busting mates and the an-
I nounceraent brought out some of the
choicest ranchmen's humor, all ut
Mix's expense. Hc stood all the kidding of the gang and then started for
Hollywood.
He was mounted on a flea-bitten
pony and led an old pack-horse which
carried all his belongings hut lie went
with thc sincere good wishes nf Campbell and all the cowboys.
When he returned to this same
country to make "Tony Runs Wild,"
Mix rode in the latest model Molls
Royce. "Tony." his famous horse,
rode in his own specially constructed
motor car. Uehlnd them came a
motor caravan with the other members of the Mix outfit, their belongings
and the location equipment necessary
to the making of motion pictures. It
was a long caravan. Its personnel
was numerous. It overflowed the
Apache Lodge, the famous hotel along
the Apache trail and the horse and
equipment camp spread oul in Fish
Canyon, near the hotel.
For thirty-five years "McFadden's
Flats" were exhibited on a painted
stage drop—and not until Edward
Small made a picture version of the
well liked play did the Flats take
concrete form. Out on the Universal
lot, where the film was made, a live
story brick structure was erected and
christened "McFadden's Flats." The
screen version ls at the Ilo-llo tonight
and Saturday.
THE BARRIER" A
STIRRING, VIRILE
TALE OF ALASKA
A stirring, virile drama of the Alaskan frontier, rational ln treatment
and with an undercurrent of delicious
comedy, has been brought to tho
screen In "The Barrier," the Metro-
Goldwyn-Mayer photoplay from Rex
Beach's widely read novel of the
same name.
The director of this picture, George
Hill, and the players, whose names
are notable ones in the films, deserve
equal praise for the successful photodrama.
One thing about this picture most
deserving of praise is that it contains
none of the overdrawn heroics cus-
tomurily associated with pictures
woven around the lives of men and
women in primitive conditions, but is
nn accurate, faithful portrayal of
man's struggles against the wilds and
the elements. "Tlle Barrier" shows
Monday. March 21. at the Ilo-llo.

JUST IMAGINE!
Just imguine yourself Jobless and
broke, but living in an exclusive
resort hotel at a fashionable Florida
beach, which melts bankrolls faster
than butter In a skillet. Your hotel
bill reads like a jeweler's price catalogue.
That is the situation in which
Louise Fazenda as Flo and Jacqueline Logan as Marion hnd themselves
in Daryl Francis Zanucks adaptation
for Warner Bros, of Beatrice Burton's
popular novel, "Footloose Widows,"
directed by Roy Del Kuth, in which
they arc featured with Jason Kobard.
What would you do? How would
you handle the situation? Would you
forge a check, try the nearest lire
escape, olfer to work It out in the
kitchen, shut the windows and turn
on the gas, or rob a bank?
They did none of those things, yet,
after an Infinite amount of most
amusing subterfuge, Intrigue, and embarrassment, they extricated themselves. Unscathed? No, hardly, but

LITTLE GIRL KILLED
COURTENAY, March 16.—The inquest on the body of Dorothy Loggie
was concluded Wednesday evening
before the coroner, Dr. McKee. The
jury composed of Messrs'. Geo. Pidcock (foreman), J. H. Mclntyre, Wm.
Cook, E. T. Ellison, F. C. Smith and
L. D. Piket returned a verdict that the
child came by her death presumably
as a result of being run over by a
wagon. An examinatoin showed that
there were five abrasions on the head,
the skull fractured and open with
brain protruding, and a simple fracture in tbe upper right arm, showing
that the unfortunate child had become
caught between the spokes of the
wheel. The driver of the wagon was
quite unaware that a tragedy had
occurred until he was overtaken more
than a mile along the road. Several
witnesses were questioned, including
two small playmates of the deceased.

MR. CAR PROSPECT,
COMOX DISTRICT.
Dear Sir:
So overwhelmingly apparent Is the
superiority of ' the new Super-Sli
Coach that its welcome has been unparalleled  In automotive history.
The new standard of beauty so instantly apparent ls matched by the
brilliant performance, carefree operation and smoothness of this beautiful
new model.
At the getaway you swing into
speed with magic ease. There Is no
jerk, vibration or mechanical chatter,
no waste motion,* no explosive jump-
sometimes mistaken for acceleration.
And so smoothly, you scarcely realize
how swiftly.
And so, in all lt does, whether In
spurting at top speed, or riding easily
at 50 miles an hour all day long, you
realize Its silky super-performance,
only by the way you out-distance
other cars. You wlll enjoy the Essex
economy of gas, oil and maintenance
—the freedom from repair needs and
the long-lived reliability that keep the
car young and maintain the snap of
new car performance.
We Invite you to Inspect this outstanding car and to ride ln it.   The
price Is little more than for a "Four."
Yours very truly,
pidcock & Mckenzie

SPECIALLY CATERED TO
Our Motto:
"QUALITY   AND  SERVICE"
By the provision of a special stage
at the Imperial Pavilion, Royston,
Messrs. Joe and Harry ldiens are giving the people of the district a chance
to see good plays on an adequate
stage. A speoial stage is now being
erected In the Imperial Pavilion, Royston, which will give companies as
much space as at theatres ln the
larger Canadian centres and, lt Is
hoped, that some visiting companies
in future will Hnd their way up the
Island. The stage will be 40 by 28
with a 16 foot celling so that scenery
can be displayed to proper advantage. The lighting will be by flood
and foot lights. The advance agent
ot the Allen Players who will be the
first to take advantage of these facilities, states that the acoustic properties of the hall are admirable. This
well known company of players will
repeat the world-renowned success,
"So This Is London," on 'Saturday
next and the farce, "The Whole
Town's Talking" on Friday evening.
The performance wlll be staged exactly as lt was at the Orpheum Theatre,
Vancouver, and the Walker Theatre,
Winnipeg.
Congratulations
Extended To
ldiens and Ash
Badminton players and fans during
the past week have been showering
congratulations on Messrs. ldiens and
Ash, of Royston, on their feat in winning the men's doubles ln the recent
badminton tournaments. This is the
third year In succession that this pair
of racket experts have been returned
as winners In the men's doubles, the
trophy becoming their own property.
It was donated three years ago by
Tarbell's Limited, of Courtenay.
Mrs. F. R. Shenstone has also been
the recipient of many congratulations,
her sterling play winning for her the
ladies' singles, twice in succession.
The tournament committee will now
have to beg, buy, borrow or steal new
trophies for next season, but lf any
player or fan, or merchant In this
district Is enthusiastic enough to donate trophies for men's doubles, we
would suggest that any member of
the local clubs be communicated with,
—the donor would be received with a
great deal of gratitude. This Is an
excellent chance for someone to show
their appreciation to a most ardent
and energetic body of people—thc
badminton tournament committee.

Tom "Sacki" Conti is still going
strong in California soccer circles,
and this week figured prominently in
a 5-4 win for his team, the Sons of
St. George, over the Olympic Club.
The win cinches the league for the
Sons, whicli means that Conti is once
more on a championship team.
Of this week's game, the San Francisco '♦Chronicle" says in part: "Then
Logan gave a corner, which 'Speed'
Parkes kicked. The bail shot through
a forest of legs until it came to Tom
Conti, the opportunistic little gent
from Canada, who addressed thc hall

VISIT OF BADMINTON
STARS IS CANCELLED
Tho visit to the district of the leading badminton players of the country,
which was to have taken place on the
26th of March with a series of games
to he played at Royston Pavilion, has
been cancelled. Owing to the big hall
being rented to a theatrical troupe,
after negotiations had been entered
Into with the badminton stars, necessitates the cancellation of the proposed visit. Those intending making
the trip included B, J. H. Cardinall
a one-time lawn tennis amateur
champion of B. ('., and champion bad
mlnton player of Canadian forces
overseas; McTaggart Cowan, singles
champion of Canada two years ago;
R. Forsyth, .lack Underbill, also Miss
Eileen Georges, singles and doubles
champion of Canada, Mrs. R. 11. Partington, doubles champion, and Mrs.
.Muir. Mr. Muir, the men's singles
champion last year, would have made
the trip had he been at the coast, but
the spectacular player, after playing
in the Dominion championships at
Montreal,  proceeded to New  York.
It is hoped that an effort will be
made to bring these stars to the district at some future date.
The Comox Badminton Club visited
Cumberland on Monday evening and
engaged the locals in a series of
friendly games. Some very close and
exciting play was witnessed, with
honors about even. Refreshments
wero served by a committee of ladies
from the local club, after which play
was continued until midnight. One
of the local members, on leaving the
hall, found that his car was missing.
Visions of policemen and Pinkerto.i
detectives Hashed across his mind,
when the eagle eye of the victim
spotted a car in the next street. On
closer investigation it proved to be
tbe missing huck.
A certain alderman of this fair burg
was blamed for the, "joke," but the
sleuth of the Islander, after a close
investigation of the case, located the
real culprit. Sufficient to say that
for a certain remuneration, the information is to be kepi secret. We have
our suspicions though, that the
Islander sleuth is open to negotiate
with the other side.
