McRAE ENTERS APPEAL
Sloan Libel Damage Award Said To Be
Largest In History Of B.C.
NANAIMO, Sept. 29.—A special jury
In assize court last evening, awarded
Hon. William Sloan, Minister of Mines
for British Columbia, plaintiff in a
libel action against. Major-General A.
D. McRae, $40,000 damages.
Hon. Mr. Sloan sought $50,000 damages from the former leader of the
Provincial party on the ground that
he had been libelled in an article that
appeared In The Searchlight, an election publication Issued during the
Provincial campaign in January, 1924,
under the heading, "A Petition for a
Royal Commission." In effect the
article complained of stated that In
1915 and 1916, when the affairs of the
P. G. E. Railway Company had become
seriously Involved, a, sum of $50,000
was paid by the company to the
plaintiff for protection aud favorable
treatment from the Liberal party.
Judge's ('lunges
Mr. Justice Murphy, In addressing
The annual meeting of the Courtenay Golf Club, held during the past
week, showed the Institution to be in I
a flourishing condition, having paid
(iff to date $5,000 of the $8,500 pur-
chase price for Its property at Sandwick. One thousand dollars was paid ;
last year on principal and interest,
and the new season starts clear of
all debt and taxes and with a small
balance on hand. In addition, a flue
new club house was built during the
past Spring.
There are now -fifty male and twelve
female members on the roster and a
drive will be made shortly lo still further increase it. With this Increased
membership It is hoped during the
next year to lie able to employ a man
steadily Improving the course and also laying the water on to the greens.
Cumberland    has    contributed    its
share of members. Messrs. J. Dick, T.
Graham, T. R. S. Graham, A. Nunns,
H.  Stewart,  M.  Graham,  G.  Tarbell I rival cities of Cumberland and Courte-
and  C.   Mcintosh  all   being  regular | naV*   The affirmative was  supported
tho Jury, spoke for forty minutes.   He
pointed out that two lines of defence
had been eliminated, I.e.. Justification,
| which    had    been    abandoned,   and
privilege, which he himself had ruled
against.   This left, therefore only one
line to be explained to the Jury, that
of fair comment.   He dwelt at length
on this angle of tho case, and the jury
' were dismissed to their room to consider whether or not the comment of
The Searchlight had been fair, and if
i not. what damage had been caused.
]    The amount claimed by plaintiff had
heen  fifty thousand dollars,  but the
I jury, In their deliberations, cut the
I sum hy ten thousand dollars, and de-
! cldetl that Genera) McRae should pay
: to Hon, Win. Sloan the sum of $40,000.
: This is the largest award ever made
by a jury for libel in the province.
i    Following tlie verdict, Mr. MacNelll,
' for   General   McRae, stated that an
appeal would be entered.

Collieries Team
Easily Disposes
Of Sapperton
The Collieries team on Sunday last
won its flrst start In the new B. C.
Iuter-Clty league, or as it is more
commonly known—'the Con Jones
.loop." The locals had no difficulty
In annexing two points, as apart from
the first ten minutes of the game, the
"Sappers" were not In the limelight
at all; except the goalie, Shllcs, and
Dagger and Campbell, the full backs.
They had a most anxious time and
defended bravely. Dagger's rushing
tactics spoiled many a well-combined
move of tlie local forwards.
After 12 minutes of play in the flrst
half, "Toughy" Davles scored a nice
counter during a scrimmage In the
goal mouth. Time after time Shlles
was extended to the limit, the young
man from the hanks of thc Fraser
covering himself with glory. Half-
time arrived with the locals one goal
to the good.
The second half was 20 minutes old
before another goal resulted, Plump
scoring with a deft hack heel touch.
Three minutes later, Jock Campbell
handled in the dreaded area, Wally
Brake -liaring* *«o'"»i*mffilty In - defeating Shlles. Three minutes from full
time a second penalty was given
against Campbell. Conti driving the
ball past the post, Intentionally. The
dual score was Canadian Collieries .3,
Sapperton 0.
Charlie Hitchens, who was brought
in from the outside-left position to
right back, acquitted himself admirably, Ills line judgment and accurate
placing being in direct contrast to
the rushing tactics of Dagger, thc
Sapper's right back, who also played
a magnificent game, and with Camp-
hell and Shlles makes up an excellent
defence. Cumberland's famous trio,
Monaghan, Conti and Brake, played
their usual superb game.
Nanaimo will be visited tomorrow.
Saturday, and a win Is confidently
expected.

Fire Destroys Dry
Kiln At Fanny Bay
The Mackie. Barnes and Horton
shingle mill nt Funny Bay lost four
million shingles iu u lire that broke
out on Monday night Just after eleven
o'clock. It is not known how tbe fire
originated but It had obtained a good
hold when it was seen and the chief
light was to isolate lt. For this there
was every appliance. Tbe building
Itself which stands ou thc other side
of the Island Highway from the mill,
was fitted with a pneumatic sprinkling system and there wero plenty of
pumps available, adequate water and
men. Tlie effort to isolate the burning building and Its contents was
completely succesful and tlle dry
kiln was the only building destroyed.
The shingles nre still burning and all
danger of an extension of the outbreak Is past.
Tbe building and contents were fully Insured nml as soon as possible
another dry kiln  will  be built.
Two box cars ou the side truck being loaded with shingles were also
consumed, Nothing but a heap of
twisted iron remains ot them. It was
lucky they had a good pressure of
water or it would have been Impossible to save the mill nnd huukhouscs.
11 Is not known yet whether they
will resume operations at once or

Nipigon Moose Hunting
Canadian muose and deer hu-Ming
seasons are ut hand; in Quebec
Irom the first of September to the
•nd of December and in Northern
Ontario, north of thc French and
the Mattawa Rivers from October
25th to the 30th of November. The
lure of this great sport is irresistible
to hundreds of men in professional
and business walks of life in Canada and the United States, and it
has been intimated at the tourist
department of the Canadian Pacific
Railway in Montreal that the movement of hunters will be greater this
year than ever before. Ozark Ripley,
well-known writer and experienced
hunter has put down briefly, but
graphically, a few impressions of
one of his hunting trips in the Nipigon country.   He writes:
"I was unprepared for the scenery
which unfolded itself gradually before me. For years I had visited
the Nipigon country and never once
felt that I had neglected any ot its
offerings until I saw things from
another perspective. I was at Lake
Helen by accident, after following
the route pursued by a big moose
which had fer some reason browsed
close to the Mission. Paul, my Ojib-
way guide, and I, had followed the
trail towards the south, through the
abbreviated poplar and birch grown
bottom lands and ovcr significant
altitudes. Paul declared it was a
moose of immense size. The trail
was gruelling and time and again I
lost the faint trail of the moose.
We followed the trail, again after
a pause, over hills. The moose
appeared to be in no hurry. Its steps
were uniform and desultory. At no
time did Paul slacken his pace and
we arrived at thc junction of Lake
Helen and Lake Polly. We dropped
down a hill to the water's edge, Paul
in advance of me. After peering
for a moment through a thicket, I
discovered a dark brown object of
immense proportions In what seemed at first a recumbent position.
"I go in bush and get round her,"
Paul whispered. "If I get round on
odder side of bull she scare; she-
come straight for you."
With this he disappeared into the
thicket as silently as a wraith of
smoke in the wind-charged air.
How long I waited I do not know.
My teeth began to chatter. It was
a fall morning and cold. The bull
moved, scenting danger. Perhaps
I acted wrongly but held on his
shoulder and snap shot at him.
Again I sighed and pulled the trigger sending another .270 Into him.
The bull fell dead with a splash.
"I got him," I exclaimed to Paul
in staccato breath when he appeared,
"I got him."
"Then I beheld rebuke in the red
man's eyes because I hadn't waited
longer.   *
"Yas," Paul declared In gutturals.
"It's easy enough to kill moose here,
but It take a real hunter to kill hecm
where it's easy to get heem out."

going to find a keen rival for supremacy in the British Columbia fishing
industry In the opinion of John Babcock, assistant commissioner of fisheries for tbe province, who recently
returned from an inspection of the
fisheries ot the west coast of Vancouver Island.
According to his report there is
greater activity in the fisheries on the
west coast than at any time In the
past twenty years, this being due to
the establishment of fish reduction
works. The one subject of conversation all along the coast from Barkley
to Quatsino is pilchards. During the
past winter and spring fourteen new
plants have been constructed, most
of which are in a position to operate
as soon as the pilchards strike the

Seehart has been taken over and will
similarly operate on pilchards. An
old cannery at Ucluelet is to be remodelled and upwards of 12,000,000
expended on new installations to tit
it for the same purpose. When all
the plants are operated they will have
a capacity for handling two hundred

I Is one of thc major transgressions of

These words of Zane Grey, the
novelist, who wrote "The Vanishing
American," tell the crux of the Btory
of the Indians which Paramount has
made into an epic picture, due at the
Gaiety Theatre next Friday and Saturday, October 8 and 9.
The bitter, courageous, determined
but hopeless stand of the Indians
against the white enemies, their retreat from the green fields and well
watered country they had called their
home for centuries, into tiie barren
desert is a powerful episode in "The
Vanishing American."
The story was filmed in the heart
of these very same wastes, on the
present Navajo reservation, 165 miles
from a railroad. Richard Dix plays
the role ot the Indian hero nnd Lois
Wilson is the heroine.

ANI) THEIR USE I that  the  most practical,  had  to  be
During the war the Canadians were ; found to deal with tiie thousands of
the first to organize a Dental Corps, i cases where men were unlikely to be
' Ht for service on account of the state
of their  teetli.   Medical  examination
brought to light many grave dangers,
not  the  least  being  that  connected
| with   decaying   teeth.     The   Dental
, Corps thus came into existence to off-
j set this danger, and many a man had
1 his mouth put Into first class shape
through its services.   Later the idea
caught on In the other armies until
Dental Corps came to he recognized
as  an  essential  and  very  necessary
part of Army organization.   The war
and Its memories are rapidly receding into the past but the danger arising from neglected and decaying teeth
still remains with us.   In many cities

Bay, the child of the Dental Corps)
has been formed to deal with this
menace, and children in the schools
receive treatment If medical examination proves that they need It. It is
surprising bow many children suffer
in this way. The first set of teeth Is
often allowed to rot out, this being
due either to Ignorance on the part
of the parents or else lack of means
to afford the necessary treatment by
a dentist. Where Dental Clinics are
operating the teeth of the children
are being attended to, but in snnifl
cities, for example, like Cumberland
where there ls no Dental Clinic, many
children are possibly having their
future health impaired because their
parents cannot pay a dentist's bill.
Nearly live hundred children attend
the local school and they all regularly pass a medical examination. This !
examination would show a certain
percentage requiring dental treatment. It would be interesting to
know bow many receive it.   A Dental
Clinic would enable all to do so. I
This Is a matter that might well receive the attention of the School
Board and the Parent-Teachers Association. Safe guarding the health

WAR RELICS
lln War Relics inspire one with the
right kind of thought?   This question
suggests itself everytime "The Telescope" .passes  by  the  Public  School
grom.d.   There one sees, mounted on
a pedestal, and garbed in a new coat
of paint, one of the many hundreds of
captured trophies that will be found
over the length and breadth of Canada.   In many cases, as tn  the  local
one, they will be found iu the School
grounds.     Each   day   hundreds   and
possbily   thousands   of  children   will
play around these miserable "souvenirs" of grim tragedy, and more often
than  not there will be sown  in  the
subconscious   region   of   their   minds
the idea of war.   A child learns very
quickly   from   pictures,   aud   a   gun
mounted on  a pedestal is a  picture,
not of the horror of war (for he doas
not visualize that) but of the so-called
glory of It as a means of killing fellow   men.   It   has   been   no   unusual
thing to look through  the telescope
at the big howitzer In Stanley Park
and see small youngsters tiring it at
imaginary enemies.   One of the most
pathetic sights  iu  Cumberland  is to
see that forlorn looking machine gun
mounted outside the Canadian Legion
Headquarters.     Its  partner  has  already disappeared, and it would be a
kindness to remove this one too.   Or
if it. as well as the "Whiz Bang" in
the School grounds are to remain in
their present positions why not label
them each with a brass plate, describing them as "Monuments to the folly
and  curse of war?"   This would,  m
many cases, bring a query from tlie
young   and   curious   minds  and  the
reason   could   then   be   stated.    The
best thing, however, would be to consign all the war souvenirs to tlle melting pot or scrap heap.   They are apt
to breed the wrong kind of thoughts.
nesday. with .Mr. Murray as chairman,
the question of organized games was
discussed.     Certain    teachers    were
appointed to  be responsible for the
coaching in such games as football,
basketball, tennis, badminton and so
on.   There   wlll  be others  who  wlll
train Tug-of-war teams and look after
the events of the race track.   Physical  training  will also form part of
the scheme, with .Mr. Jackson as Instructor.   This  P. T. will not be of
tlie   "arms   bending   and   stretching"
variety, but children who suffer from
certain    physical   ailments   will    be
given such exercises as will help to
overcome    these     disabilities.     The
whole tiling will bc one glorious game
but all worked out on an organized
system.   This   Is,   it   may  be   stated,
one  of  the   progressive  steps   which
the   Parent   Teachers   Association   is
taking this year.   Ia happy contrast
to the "Whiz-bang" gun referred to
in the last paragraph one may observe
being erected some of the new playground equipment recently purchased
by  tbe  School  Board.   l\  is  evident
tbat the  members of the Board are
alive to the value of catering to the
play  instinct,  and   they deserve  full
iredit   for   the   encouragement   and
backing they give to the teaching staff
and the P. T. A. In this matter.
ORGANIZED GAMES
More and more the value of play
Is becoming recognized in tlle life ol*
the community. In Vancouver, as
well as ln other large cities, playgrounds have been established where
tiie children can enjoy themselves to
their hearts' content under expert
supervisors. Children learn through
play, and to know how "to play the
game" is tlle hall mark of sportsmanship. It ls in the playground rather than at the desk that character is
built up. Cumberland is taking this
matter of "play" quite seriously, and

WHAT  IS IHJLLt
The old Idea of "Hell Are and damnation" Is rapidly going by the board,
but  such  expressions as  "Oh  Hell,"
"Isn't it hell," "A hell of a life" etc.
are still of frequent occurence. When
I hey are used, what is exactly meant?
They are, without doubt, an expressive way of describing some thought
at  the  back of the   speaker's   mind
which  means  to convey that things
could  not be much  worse.   To hear
these   remarks   raises   the   question,
'what is hell"?   Perhaps the nearest
approach to describing the sensations
of hell Is to be found In the Story of
Dives and Lazarus.   This parable, to
be found in Luke 16, is a remarkable
piece of drama whicli vividly portrays
the meaning of  hell.     VVe are  told
that Lazarus died and was carried by
the   angels   into   Abraham's   bosom.
The, rich man  (and we are not told
he was a wicked rich man) also died
ami "was buried, "and ln hell he lifted
ni) bis eyes, being in tormenta." There
is  only  one  possible  meaning  here,
and that Is he was suffering from the
hell  of  a  stricken  conscience.   One
cannot   conceive   of  anything   worse
than   this.   "The  hell"  which   comes
with physical pain Is slight compared
with the mental pain in a conscience
which tells us we have done wrong.
It is1 true the conscience can become
deadened, and  that Is exactly  what
happened in the case of Dives.   But
the jolt of death  aroused*   the   conscience  into  activity  again, and  the
torment  was  intense.   Preaching today does not  stress the fact that If
one does wrong one will "go to hell";
what it tries to emphasize is the truth
that  we wlll create our own hell lf
we  allow  our conscience  to become
deadened.   Public conscience as well
individual  conscience can  create
bell  right  here on  earth.   It is  not
always necessary to have to wait for
the beyond to experience "hell." Tlle
remedy to hell here and hereafter Is
a  clear  conscience  and   that  peace
which conies with a "mind stayed on
God."

In a recent report from the Canadian Pacific Agent at Shanghai received at Montreal it is stated that
the summer in vicinity of Shanghai
has been trying on account of

A plan is projected by the Osaka
Prefectural Government authorities
in .Japan for the promotion of a
large exposition in commemoration
of the tenth anniversary of the restoration of world peace. It is expected that the exposition wii! be
opened in Osaka in 1929. The plans
for the exposition, which wilt be
carried out at tremendous cost, have
jeen approved by the Prime Minister.
So successful on Canadian farms
have been young bachelors, who,
prior to residence in this country
were students in agriculture at the

in Essex, England, that the Army

men destined for farm lands in the

agriculture, particularly adapted to

Prospects for the estab.i.iiment of

WHAT MAKES IT
SO WONDERFUL?
Naturally, the question follows the utter
astonishment of hearing the new Orthophonic Victrola
for the first time.
Compared with the enchantment of actual performance, -
explanation seems futile.
Yet, humans are curious. The
query persists: "What makes
Orthophonic Victrola music so
captivating?'*
First, there is the revolutionary new acoustic principle.
Second, there are the things it
only,—of all reproducing instruments,—accomplishes.
The Orthophonic Victrola reproduces  the  hass  sounds  as
they should be heard. Harshness,—it does not know. Piano
notes are maintained for their
true duration.
Organ music has full organ
resonance. Dance music is
compelling faithful in rhythm
to its original. Vocal harmony
parts are clear and easily distinguishable from one another.
Diction is natural as life. All
tones have their (rue proportionate values. The result is
beauty that matches the
original, tone for tone.
