Yours respectfully, John R. Gray
The Mayor stated they had
two gentlemen present, Messrs.
James L. Brown and McAllister,
and if they had anything to say
the Council would be pleased to
hear them.
Mr. Brown addressed the
Council stating that they had
been appointed to interview the
Council to try and obtain the use
of the City Park, as in the neat-
future a number of the members
of the United Mine Workers
were to be evicted from the Company houses, and they would like
the use of the City Park for the
purpose of erecting tents for the
evicted miners to live in.
District Secretary McAllister
also addressed the Council.
It was moved and seconded
that the miners be granted the
use of the City Park. No time
being specified.
The deputation said they did
not know how many would be
evicted. After thanking the
Council on behalf of the U.M.W.
of A. the deputation withdrew.
The Chairman of the Board of
Works brought up the question of
street crossings and made special
mention of those crossings at
Dunsmuir Avenue and Second
Street and at Dunsmuir Avenue
and Third Street., He suggested
that the water holes be filled up
with ashes for the time being.
The Mayor said those places
were a disgrace to any city and
ought to be attended to at once.
Aid Beveridge thought that
pipes should be put under the
crossings to carry away the
water.
Aid. Banks drew thc Council's |
THE ISLANDER, CUMBERLAND, B.C., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1912
attention to the little lake just
outside the post office.
Considerable discussion ensued
with reference to grading Dunsmuir Avenue with gravel, especially on the left hand side between
Second and Third Street.
Aid. Banks favoured putting
in ditches first and then laying1
the crossing. Tlte whole matter
was left in the hands of the
Board of Works to look after.
The school question, the salaries and large expenditures, came
up for consideration. The City
Clerk said arrangements would
have to be made foran overdraft
to pay them.
The Mayor said with reference
to the new school that the Provincial Government would equip
and furnish the new building
complete. Some of the aldermen
thought it was almost time to
interview the government'on the
school question.
Aid. Beveridge said he had
been over the alley ways and
found them in good shape with
the exception of one of the aldermen's premises, and it was the
worst. He invited the Mayor to
go and look over it himself. He
thought the aldermen ought to
show the citizens an example.
The Mayor asked if anything
had been done to the Matheson
property. The City Clerk stated
that he had received no reply to
his communication but it was
understood that Matheson would
put-in a septic tank.
The  Board   of   Works   were
ordered to repair the broken sidewalk on Derwent Avenue, and
see if the light at the corner of
that avenue and Second Street
could not be placed to a better
advantage.   This brought up the
question of better lights for the
streets up for consideration. The
committee having charge of the
matter reported progress.   The
Council thought that the Electric
Light Company were a little slow
in turning the lights on in the
evening and a little early in turning them off in the mornitig.
Seeing the city had a very limited
amount of electric light during
the  summer they thought the
company should be a little more
generous now there was lots of
water.     Some   of  the  Council
thought it was not the Electric
Light Company's fault but the
employees who were anxious to
quit as early as possible.   The
Electric Light Committee were
instructed to see into the matter
and report.   The City Clerk was
also requested to  write to the
company.
Under the heading of deferred
business the Martin Griffin letter
was discussed.
The Mayor said it took the most
of his time while in Vancouver
attending to the by-laws and interviewing Mason, Griffin and
Crosby. It was pointed out that
the bank would not loan the
money on the by-law until the
Municipal Act was amended at
the next sitting of the Legislature. The money to pity the
contracts could be secured by an
additional overdraft with the
bank.
The Mayor stated that the city
would not have to pay Martin
and Griffin for the drafting of
the two previous by-laws. He
also said that the city had accepted the concrete pavement and
must settle up all matters in connection with it at once, Martin
Griffin's communication was received and their advice acted on.
Aid. Maxwell gave notice that
the two by-laws formerly passed
by the Council and known as No.
1 and 2 be rescinded.
The new by-law No. 1 known as.
Sidewalk Assessment and Benefit
By-law, No. 2 cited as the Dunsmuir Avenue Sidewalk By-law.
THE ADVANTAGE
Cumberland's  Trade Meant a
Great Deal to thn Business
Peoplo of the Capital.
The request of tho residents of,
Cumberland that the line of the
Canadian Northern Pacific should
be located so as to pass through
that city seems wholly reasonable.
The line as surveyed is some two
miles out of town, and the diversion necessary to carry it through
Cumberland would involve the
building of a little more than five
miles of railway in addition to
what would be necessary if
the present location is adopted
finally. This would mean an
addition to the total length of the
main line to the north end of the
Island.
Cumberland and the immediate vicinity have a population Of
about 4000 people. It is therefore a very important centre of
population, as may be judged
from the fact that the average
amount of freight entering the
city is 2000 tons per month, and
the average arrival of passengers
is 1186 per month. With such a
volume of business, without any
railway connection except the
short line down to Union Bay,
where the steamers land, this is
a very remarkable showing. The
whole country in that neighbourhood is very rapidly developing
and the future is full of the
greatest promise.
It is not only important to the
people of Cumberland that they
[should have direct railway connection, but also to Victoria as j
as well. At the present time all
freight from this city to Cumberland is sent via Vancouver, which
city has three steamers a week
available as against one from
Victoria. Unless direct rail connection is given Cumberland,
Victoria will continue to beiyider
this handicap. We are all interested in the request of the Cumberland people in a degree second
only to theirs.
We have not yet heard the railway's side of the case, and therefore do not know what answer,
if any, can be made to this re
quest; but we hope it will be
found possible to meet tho wishes
of Cumberland and we urge the
favorable consideration of the
case upon the railway authorities.
-Colonist.
Tenants To Show Cause.
His Honor Judge Barker held
County Court in Cumberland last
Wednesday morning. Mr. P. P.
Harrison, on behalf of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsnitiir) Ltd.,
made application foran order foi
some sixty tenants who areoccu-
pying the company's houses, to
show cause why they should not
be ejected by the sheriff. The
order was granted, and will be
heard on December 4th, at 11
o'clock in the forenoon. The boat
houses at Comox Lake will be
dealt with at the same time.
The city clerk read the newly
framed by-laws while the aldermen got busy with their pencils.
The by-law will be filled in and
returned to Vancouver for final
consideration before being spread
upon the minutes of the Council.
The Chief of Poliec will be instructed to look after trade
licences. Evidently some are
doing business without first obtaining a licence.
The purchasing of a horse for
city use was left with the Board
of Works.
The Mayor and City Clerk were
instructed to make an overdraft
on the Royal Bank for school
purposes.
On motion Council adjourned.
H. S. CLEMENTS, M.P.
VISITS CUMBERLAND
The various branches of the
Conservative Association assembled together at the Union
Hotel last Wednesday evening,
to enjoy a social and smoker given honor of H. S. Clements, M.P.
for the Comox-Atlin District,
who had arrived in Cumberland
by automobile from the Bay.
Mr. Clements visited this city
in the interests of his constituents
to ascertain their wants and requirements, before leaving for
Ottawa to attend the opening of
parliament. j
The different branches of the
Association represented at the
gathering were Union Bay, Cour
tenay and Cumberland. The
Board of Trade was also present
in full force to lay their troubles
before the Dominion representative.
Mr. D. R. MacDonald,  president of the Cumberland Conservative Association, in his opening
remarks stated that the various
executives   would   be   allowed
thirty minutes each to lay their
claims before the representative
for his consideration. There were
about fifty of the most prominent
Conservatives   present   at   the
gathering, and wh'le the executives were voicing their sentiments for the welfare of the district the remaining portion of the
meeting were entertained with
songs, recitations and piano solos
by members of the association.
Among those who took part in
the programme for the evening
were Mr. Frank Ramsay, who as
an elocutionist is seldom excelled;
[Mr.  Cameron, of Cameron and
Allan, Courtenay, whose singing
was very much appreciated; also
James Walker, O.H.Fechner, and
Samuel Calhoun, each of them
receiving repeated encores.   Refreshments were served in the
shape of a dainty lunch with the
good  cigars made up all   that
could be desired.    After satisfying the inner man Mr. D. R. Mc
Donald called upon Mr. H. S.
Clement, M.P., the speaker of
the eveniug, for an address.
Mr.  Clements spoke at some
length on the last general election
and the size of the Comox-Atlin
District,   with 3000 miles of a
coast line makingit impossible to
visit Cumberland as often as he
intended to do.    He showed the
contrast between the amount of
wharfs, public buildings and so
forth erected during the life oi
Liberal  government and   what
had been done in theComcx-Atlin
district during his term of office,
the difference was something extraordinary.    He devoted some
time to the civil service of the
country,  he believed in paying
good salaries and having ellicient
officials.   He also said he  had
requests made by the executives
from the  various Conservative
associations   which  he  heartily
endorsed and would endeavor to
secure.    He   dealt   extensively
upon the fishing industry, public
wharfs and the method of building and repairing, also the Indian
reserves and the Indians.   Mr.
clement also spoke for some time
on naval affairs, and said he did
not know what the Right Hon.
R. L. Borden's naval policy would
be but he assured them it would
meet with British sentiment.   If
the Prime   Minister   asks   for
twenty or thirty millions he was
going to vote for it.   The time
had arrived to establish a navy
on the Pacific coast, and we must,
British   subjects   help   tho
Mother country, and he said ho
was going to assist Mr.  Borden
in carrying out his policy.   He
had the pleasure of being under
Mr. Borden's leadership while in
I opposition during thc years 1901

MOST SUCCESSFUL
Simon Leiser Instrumental in Securing an Interview with the
Premier and Engineers.
The delegation from the Board
of Trade which went to Victoria
last week to interview Sir Richard McBride, and consisting of
Mayor McLeod and Messrs. Thos.
E. Bate, W. E. Lawrence and T.
E. Banks, were accompanied in
their interview  by Mr. Simon
Leiser,   ex-president of the Victoria Board of Trade, who realized
the importance of their mission
from a Victoria standpoint. Great
credit is due Mr.' Leiser in securing the interview and rendering
the deputation very valuable assistance while waiting upon the
Premier and who laid the facts
clear in a very concise  manner.
The question for consideration
between the Premier and the deputation is of vital importance to
Cumberland.    They asked that
the line of Canadian Northern'
—  ,-,—
Pacific Railway be surveyed andLday.
built through this city, instead of
two and a half miles distant, as
the present survey shows. Mr.
T. G. Holt, of the railway company, was present when the delegation waited upon Sir Richard.
The case was very clearly and
forcibly put before the Premier
by the members of the deputation
and Sir Riehard expressed himself as vary mueh impressed with
the merits of the request..
Mr. Lewis, the railway company's engineer, who' was also
present, stated that it would be
quite feasible to build through
the city of Cumberland, although
by so doing the line to the north
end of the Island would be made
some five "miles longer than by
the surveyed route.
Mr. Holt said he fully appreciated the remarks made by the
members of the deputation and
promised that, if it is possible,
the wishes of the citizens of
Cumberland would be complied
with.
The delegates invited Sir Richard McBride and Mr. Holt to visit
Cumberland after the return of
the former from Ottawa, and
both these gentlemen expressed
themselves _s being willing to
accept the invitation if business
engagements would permit.
We feel assured that Mr. Simon
Leiser will do his best to secure
for us a visit from Ihe Premier
and Mr. Holt. We may expect
the distinguished party in the
near future.

All Doctor's    Medicino    Failed—Cure
Effected   by Use of
DR. CHASE'S
KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS.
Again this great medicino has triumphed over kidney disease's ot a se-[
vere type From a bed of suffering j
and helplessness Mrs. Walsh was restored to heallh and strength hy using Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.
Kidney pains in lhe back tortured
her. Dropsical swellings had set iu
and she liad no reason tu hope for
cure, since the doctor's medicine failed to oven relievo her. Head what
the husband says about this remarkable cure.
Mr. Thos. D. Walsh, Pictou, N.S.,
writes:—"Two years ago my wife took
to her bed after suffering for a long
time from kidney pains in tho back.
She was not able to stand on her feet
or evon turn herself ln bed. The
doctor's medicine was no benefit
whatever, that wo could see. Sometimes her legs would swell considerably. 'Reading about a woman In
similar condition being cured by Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, we purchased two boxes and when these
were used she wns able to sit up.
With three moro boxes she was restored to health and doing her own
housework.
As for myself I also found these
pills all that ls calmed for them. I
give this statoment In order that
others may obtain the same ease from
suffering as that experienced by my
wife and myself."

The Rag Dealer's Scales
When a eon was born to the head
of a certain family ln an Ohio town,
the proud father went out of the house
to borrow a pair of scales. Just as
ho dashed out of thc gateway, he ran
Into a rug dealer, who was calling at
the top of his lungs:
Any rage, any bottles, any—
Look nore! exclaimed the excited
parent. Come Into the house. I want
you to weigh something for me.
The man did as requested. The
pink mlto wus tied np In a towel and
hooked an to the scales.
Six pounds! cried tho nurse.
Six pounds ropeated the disappointed father.
The rag dealer smiled. Don't let
that worry you, my friend, said he.
Then Is the scales I buys by, I
guess the kid weighs ten pounds, maybe a little over that.

What the Editor has to say.
The summoning of Parliament for November 21st means
that before many weeks the country will know all thret there
is to know on the subject of the Borden Government's naval
policy. The announcement of the date sufficiently answers
Liberal predictions that the government would seek and find
some pretext for delaying the opening until the new year.
1'redictionsof that sort have been freely circulated in opposition
newspapers for some weeks, the wish being probnbly fnther to
the thought. They have been circulated despite the definite
declaration of the Rt. Hon. R. L. Borden in Montreal ol
September 21st, that parliament would meet in the autumn
The statement of the Prime Minister should have settled, and
with a majority of the people undoubtedly did settle, the
question as to the readiness of the government to meet the
House. As a matter of fact there is every indication that the
opening of the second session of the twelfth parliament wi
find the government's sessional agenda in an advanced stage of
preparation so that no time will be lost in getting important
legislation before parliament. This means that there is to be a
working session from the start, making possible a comparatively
early prorogation consistent with the importance of the measures
to be considered. The naval policy will of course be the
principal matter for the consideration of the house. Recent
developments substantiate the belief that that policy will be
one worthy of the people of Canada, involving as one of its
main features immediate and effective aid to the mothei'
country, such aid to be given in a manner calculated to amply
safe-guard the status of Canada as a self-governing dominion
within the Empire.

The development of the country and the rapid extension
of the areas of settlement is calling for corresponding increases
in and extensions of the postal servi-e. An idea of the rapid
strides made, is given by the fa>ct that ahr.ost KOO new post
nllices have been opened in different parts cf the country since
January 1st, 1912. The number is increasing monthly fur the
month's average from July 1st to October 1st has been ut the
rate of sixty. An idea of the development of the \ve.4 may
be given in the number of new poet offices established in tbe
prairie provinces and tho far west in one month. Out of
seventy-six new offices opened on July int, fifty Were in points
in the prairie provinces and the far west. The same rat iti bas

this year,
Tin: resignation of Hun. F, D. Monk as minister of public
works has cmne about under circumstances whioh are creditable
io the Government ami at the same time creditable to Mr.
Monk. These circumstances involved, on the purt of the
Oovernment, a determination to tlo its duty as a Government;
on the part of Mr. Monk a determination to observe a promise
made by him as an individual member prior to the formation
of the present government. Mr. Monk's retirement was effected
without bitterness on either side, but on the contrary witb the
most friendly feelings and with no diminution of tluit mutual
(;ood will existing prior to Mr. Monk's decision to resign. Mr*
Monk considered hiniselt personally pledged to a reference of
any naval policy to the people. When the government ns a
whole reached the conclusion, following the visit of the l'i ime
Minister and some of his colleagues to England, that the
situation in Great Britain called for immediate aid, Mr. Monk
found himself unable to agree to a measure of aid without the
question being first referred to the people, At the same time
he recognised the naval situation to be grave and critical, As
an honorable man Mr. Monk was bound to observe his pledge,
und liis course must bave been followed by any other minister
similarly situated.

A Contest ot Ingenious
Advertising
«    By Philip Bosworth
The fixing of prices today Ih far different frmn wlmt It was when 1 wa1* a
yoiiiiK man At (hat time we \v«*re
cutting each other's profits duwn to a
minimum anil unmet I men to a loan.
But there were virgin tields In those
ilaya that luul not been workod. Ona
might go Into a western town with a
lien* kind of goods to self, and tf tliey
were salable tie would make a good
profit on tlirin. 1 nerved an apprenticeship with a largo soup ninuuruetiir-
Ing concert! and after Uavinu thoroughly learned the business concluded to go
to some western state and build up a
trade In the goods with whleh I wns
familiar. I settled iu a towu called
FarWuworth. the center of a country
that was rapidly growing In population.
1 had been furnished with aome
means for advertising and concluded
to attract attention by unique notices.
1 remember the first one 1 Issued I
considered very clever. It was. "liver?
patriot uses tinnter's soap, especially
on Blrthlngton's wash day." J was
disappointed to tind thnt tbe plain, uneducated people of that region did uot
•ee the humor of tuy ad., for those who
mentioned It to me asked who Birth-
ington was. After explaining to most
of the citizens of the town that Birth-
"flood morning! Tell Mr. Ketchara
i to come over aud ae* me."
i But Ur. Uetcham did uot come to
Uee me. Ou the contrary, lm continued
the contest, wltb nu quarter. Hla uext
jHiiuouiiceuieut was that at a trial between Guuter's and Southwlek> soaps
u cake of each was thrown Intu a tiili
uf water and South wick's washed Gun*
Iter's clean out of tpe tub. Mauy people understood enough of tbis to sea
that the laugh was to med against me.
Not only did my sales fall off. but 1
[found (hat a good many cukes of the
| South wick article were .hiding their
way luto Kuril* worth. It seemed to
,uie ihut I must du something to get the
upper hand lu tbe struggle or go out
or business;- So, afler rucking my
brain for awhile. 1 got a nutice inserted In the newspapers of my (own that
there was no use for our citizens to
seek the seashore during the summer-
Ail tliey need do was to throw a cake
of Guuter's soap Into Green's pond iitid-
tiie latter, breaking on (he shore, wuuld
be quite equal to any sea foam.
i Wbat was iny surprise, after my
caution, to see a few days after this in-
neriion a notice In a Millvtlle paper
[that the agent of Gunior's snap at
Kiirnswortb had by mint like got hold of
it cake of SuuihwickV soap uud wasn-
ed himself out of business.
I This was loo much It wns a false,
[malicious announcement. At any rate,
many matter of fact people wonld
so construe IL I drove over to Mill*
1 ville resolved to pul a stop to this libelous way uf competing fur trade und

Satisfactory Method of Finishing Swins
For Market.
One of the most satisfactory methods of finishing hugs is thai of "hog.
giug off." lu faet. as a method of lit*
ting for markei after the pigs have secured the necessary size and frame It
la cheaper thun the best methods of
dry lot feeding. The hog Is his own
bar vester and feeder, lie saves labor,
time and fertility. Aud certainly in
Ihese dnys when labor Is source, hind
high and feeds expensive we may well
welcome a method with which tu reduce the cost of production.
At one lime tt waa Ihe common opinion lhat much of the corn was wasted.
Uut actual tests disprove thla. Indeed,
hugs will waste less corn thnn the
farmer, were he to shuck It himself.
Of course allowance must be mude for
extremely wel seasons, but lu this case
hurdles may be used und ouly about
ns much corn ullowed as can be cleau-
ed up well in about teu daya.
Some Ideu of tbe economy of "hog-
gtug off" muy be gained by noting the
results of un experiment nt the lown
station. Tbe pigs were turned Into lite
standing corn at a weight of eighty-
two pounds during the middle of September, or about the time the corn was
beginning to dent. One acre supported
teu pigs aboul two months. At the eud
of that time the lot In soy bonus and
corn mude a gain of one and n half
j pounds per duy, producing over iHKI
pounds of pork per acre at a cost of
$2.38 per hundred. Tbe second lot in
com and cow pens gained one and u
quarter pounds per day ut a cost of
$2,411 per hundred. Corn nnd vetch
stood third In dally gain and cost of
producion ntid corn atone fourth.
At the Missouri station bogs weighing 140 pounds were turued Into a Held
of corn In which rye bud been sowed
nt the last cultivation. The pigs weighed 200 pounds when removed, or, at 6
cents per pound, returned $3d per acre,
ln a second lot corn and cowpeus
were fed. The Whippoorwill variety
wns used, and they were sown broadcast nt tbe time of tbe lust cultivation
of July 17. The feed lusted thirty
days, aud In tbat time the pigs had
gained tlfty-seven pounds ench. Tbe
Important result ts that f>(>8 pounds of
pork were produced per acre, wblch
at tt cents returned $:s4.os. Com and
rape were also fed with success. Hape
may he sown lu the same manner us
the peas, at the rate of about, four
pounds per acre. On either soy beans
or vetch may be sown at the rate of
about one-half bushel per acre: When
forage cropa cannot be sown In tbe
corn they may be provided ns a separate pasture, or alfnlfn or clover
pasture may be used us a supplement
when It is accessible.
Under ordinary conditions the pigs
will take care of the corn without
much attention. However. If small
plga are used it mny be uecesaary to
assist them for awhile by "turning tn'p
a few older hogs. For this reason KK)
pound pigs generally give the best results. IMgs of this size have secured
sufficient growth, so thut they will
not become too chunky and atop
growth. Very large plga, on the other
hand, nre Inclined lo break more corn
than Is absolutely necessary from duy
to dry: hence their gnln is uot bo economical.

WONO  AS JOURNALISTS.
Thsy Started Newspapers Over a Century Ago.
One of the men of broad minds—Joseph Pulitzer—employed a large number bf women us writers pu bis very
successful newspapers, and yet when
lie mude the gift of S.VHUHHi to found
a school of journalism appended the
provision tlmt women should not be
permitted to attend (he school. The
provision haa caused much wonderment.
During the past fifty yenrs women
have developed the qualities that go
to make a Journalist remarkable. They
are, more and more adapting themselves to meeting the requirements of
tbe alert reporter. It bas been less
thuu fitly yeurs since women entered seriously upon newspaper *Vork,

CHANGES HANDS
A business transaction of unusual proportions was consummated at Vancouver last week
when the British Columbia Breweries Company, of which Messrs.
Doering and Williams have the
controlling interest, was turned
to an English syndicate for the
sum of $2,500,000.
The Harmsworth interests of
London are largely interested in
the purchase. Tiie price paid was
for the realty, stock and good
will of the British Columbia
Breweries Company, and includes j
in all four properties. The concerns which formed apart of the
company are the Vancouver
Breweries Company, the Canadian
Brewing and Malting Company,
the Union Brewing Company of
Nanaimo and the Pilsener Brewing Con.piny of Cumberland.
MessrB, Doering and Williams
have been engaged in the brewing business in British Columbia
for the past twenty-five years,
but with the completion of the
transaction will retire from the
brewery businsss.
The transaction was completed
for the English syndicate by Mr.;
Clarence M. Marpole, of the firm
of Macdonald and Marpole.

The strike seems to be about
finished; Cumberland will soon
resume its normal condition. Everything is assuming a brighter
aspect. The output during the
past week has been reduced ow>
ing to No. 7 fan having broke
down; but repairs are expected
to be complete4 by to-morrow,
when No. 7 will again resume
operations.
Preparations are being made to
open No. 5 mine, and it is expected to start work in a few
days. That will make the fourth
mine at work.
The local union officials inform
us that we can expect no support
from them. We knew that long
ago. Also that they were trying
to divert all the business possible
from this office. But we would
beg to Inform the local union
officials that there is not a better
union office printing a weekly
newspaper in the Dominion of
Canada than the Islander. But
we believe in right and justice to
all parties concerned, and we are
not afraid to do so irrespective oi
j what the union officials may think
or do. To some who may not
understand the situation as we
do on the spot it may seem unfair
to be against the union officials,
but in this case we are justified
seeing the* outrageous action
perpetrated upon the colliery
company at the commencement
of the strike.
The total output at the local
mines during the last week was
4,320 tons. With No. 7 in shape
the output will undoubtedly increase to 1000 tons per day in the
next week.
All the fire bosses at Ladysmith have signed the two year
contract to return to work. A
large number of the coal miners
have done the same.
