There was a big crowd present, the
shouts from which could be heard all
over town when a good play was given.
A hard and exciting struggle took
place betwen the Courtenay and Cumberland teams, keeping the fans on
edge throughout the game.
Although the score was large both
teams played good ball, while home
runs were credited on both sides. The
teams got away with a good start,
Courtenay securing three runs in the
lirst inning, while Cumberland followed with six, duplicating the same
in tlie second. This finished the scoring for Cumberland, as Courtenay's
star pitcher then took charge aud kept
the local team from scoring. The valley boys kept gradually adding to their

Council Adopts
Boulevard Plan
Considerable Business Transacted Fortnightly Meeting of
Council on Monday.
The regular meeting of the Council
was held on Monday night, at which
considerable routine business was
transacted. Mayor MacDonald was ln
the chair, and Aldermen Parnham,
Pickard, Francescini. Brown and City
Clerk Mordy also attended.
Council Agrees to Plan of Mr. Owen
tor Houlerurd on Avenue.
Mr. Owen attended the meeting and
explained his proposal for the boulevard on Dunsmuir Avenue between
Third and Fifth Streets. The idea Is
to have a strip 16 feet wide reserved
fur shade trees and grass on these
two blocks. Mr. Owen Informed the
Council that besides beautifying the
approach to the city, and giving visitors a good impression, the plan would
save the city considerable money, as
the Upkeep of the road would be reduced. The saving in the first two
coats of tarvia will amount to about
$400.
The plan leaves 20 feet for vehicular
traffic on both sides of the boulevard.
which is ample, as Mr. Owen informed
the Council that Nanaimo's principal
street has only 34 feet for this class
of traffic, whereas Dunsmuir Avenue
will still have 40 feet.
The proposal found favor with all
the aldermen, and after detailed discussion, on motion of Aid. Brown,
seconded by Aid. Parnham, the following resolution was unanimously carried: "That the Council accept Mr.
Owen's plan for a boulevard and proceed with tlie work soon as possible."
Communications.
Secretary A. J. Fouracre of the G.
W. V. A. wrote to the Council seeking
information concerning the Soldiers'
Housing Scheme, and enclosing names
of seven comrades who are desirous
of building.
City Clerk Mordy has been in communication with the authorities concerning the same subject, but details
of the scheme have not yet come to
hand.
Mr. H. S. Clements acknowledged
communication from Council concerning the request for $200 from the Dominion government towards Improvement of Dunsmuir Avenue, ln cousld
cration of the Dominion Buildings on
the avenue. Mr. Clements says he is
taking the matter up with the Minister of Public Works and it will have
his whole-hearted support.
$12 for Memorial Arch.
The Bevan Lumber and Shingle Co.
sent a cheque for $12, explaining thai
this money had been collected for the
Memorial Arch fund but had been inadvertently overlooked. The Council
received the money with thanks.
Highway Not Classified.
A reply was received from the Public Works Department in answer to
information asked as to the class!
flcation of highways in Cumberland
He stated that no provision had been
made as regards the Cumberland
highwys as yet. This notification was
a surprise to some of the aldermen as
they were under the impression thai
Dunsmuir Avenue and Fourth Street
to the Courtenay highway had beeu
classified as primary highways. Evidently the government has not yet
classified these roads, though the
Council was asked several months ago
to furnish particulars and their wishes
In this connection.
Compensation Board Assessments.
Mr. Mordy Informed the Council
thai he had taken up with the Compensation Board the matter of the Council's assessment on labor being paid
twice, as the municipality had paid
some $14 for tho half-year and had also
paid $25 to the Canadian Collieries for
labor assessment on work done for the
city. A reply was received from the
Compensation Board stating that the
auditor was out of town but the matter
would he gone into later.

The  following  bills  and  accounts
were read and referred to the Finance
Committee for approval:

City Council of the Municipality of
Duncan ..regarding Orientals, at the
meeting on Monday night.

Victoria Firm Secures Work at
.S7ol0 lor Complete New
Sanitary System
McDowell & Maun, 646 Johnston
SI reel. Vicloria. were the successful
tenderers for the construction of a
complete sanitary system fn tbe Cumberland Public School, which lias just
been awarded by the Provincial Public Works Department. The amount
of the tender is $75H>.
Tlie specifications cull for the excavation ol* the basement and Ins'talla-
tion of modern wash basins, toilets,
septic tank, etc. Part of^the Installation will be on Ihe uppejfcfloor of the
school, for the use or teachers.
Other work includes alterations to
Ihe tire escape, making it more sale in
case of tire.
While the sanitary arrangements in
the past have been a disgrace to a public institution, the new installation
will place the Cumberland scliool In
the front rank in modern sanitation.
The School Board is also making
improvements and repairs to the outside of the school which will cost in
the neighborhood of $100(1. When tbe
scholars begin tbe Winter term they
will attend a school of which the
children and their patents will have
cause to be proud.
Kev. Thos. Menzles, Mayor MacDonald and other city officials worked
hard to get tbe government to make
these very necessary improvements.
Though the government leaves much
undone for the good of Cumberland,
notably its poor roads, credit must be
given them for the splendid manner hi
which tbey help the schools.

Ladysmith easily defeated the Calgary soccer team at Nanaimo on Wednesday. Although tiie score was only
2 to j, ih<. Inland team on the piny
should have scorod many more goals.
One Chinaman in hospital suffering
rom bullet wound in back.
One Japanese In Jail, charged with
ttempted murder.
Two Japanese gunmen supposed to
•b hiding lu hills.
Missing from gambling bouse $1000?
These are the net" results so far of
ttempted robbery from one of the
ambling houses iu Chinatown early
'hursday morning.
About one a.m. Ui tense excitement
prevailed in Chinatown when several
idiots were fired by some Japanese
who had been visiting one of the
gambling bouses.
II appears that tlie Japanese who
are supposed to have recently arrived
from Vancouver, were participating in
a game at No. 25, and according to
the statement of the one now in Jail,
named M. Shiaga, he placed a few
dollars on a gambling table, and lost;
one of his accomplices then staked
over one hundred dollars, and lost,
whereupon he is said to have accused
the Chinese of cheating and told his
partner to grab the money, which he
lid—and that started things in quick
succession. The Japanese endeavored
to leave the house, but met with resistance, Chinese grabbing at the bills
amongst the general pandemonium.
One of the Japanese, it is said, pulled
a gun aud tired two shots, one of
which hit a Chinaman named Wong
Deen in the back. Another of the
Japanese, all of whom were armed
with powerful automatic revolvers, is
said to have fired two shots, but which
did no damage.
By this time the excited crowd had
reached the street and hundreds of
Chinese were emerging from tho
buildings, adding to the excitement.
Just at this time it happened that
Provincial Constable Geo. Bell, of
Courtenay, was on the way to Chinatown, looking for Constable Dunbar,
whom he bud been informed was in
that vicinity. Constable Bell was
close to Chinatown when the shooting
occured and distinctly heard two loud
reports and two smaller ones, giving
the impression of shotH fired from
large aud small calibre guns.
Provincial Police Arrest Japanese
He hurried to Ihe scene of the shooting and was soon surrounded by hundreds of excited Chinese, who informed
him that tbe Japanese had been robbing and shooting in No. 25. Con. Bell
pursued one of the Japs up the railway line and arrested bim. Just before being arrested the Jap threw
something into the hush, but it was
too dark for the policeman to see what
it was. After a hasty search tho con-
liable wisely decided to lodge his man
in jail, lest he might escape in the excitement, as there were crowds of
Chinese around them.
Hardly had the constable safely
lodged the prisoner in jail when Choo-
Hoy, a Chinaman who saw tho Jap
throw something away, put ln an appearance with a revolver which he
said he had found in the place where
Ihe Jap had thrown  something.
The gun was an 8-cartridge one and
bad six cartridges In the magazine.
Jap Admits (•rubbing Money.
Tbe Japanese under arrest told the
police that he had grabbed the money
in tlie gambling house, and had thrown
it away lu the hope of stopping the
Chinese following him. He had some
of the bills in his possession when
arrested, and they have the appearance of having been lu a struggle.
Shiaga says he conies from Vernon,
joining the other two Japanese In
Vancouver before coming to Cumberland.
Following Ihe shooting Dr, Hicks
was at once notified and he ordered
the victim taken to the hospital, where
the Celestial was operated upon aud a
bullet of about 40 calibre removed
from his back, The doctor snys that
if the bullet bad gone iu the opposite
direction it would have meant instant
death.
Appears fur Preliminary Hearing and
Is It emu tided.
On Thursday evening Shiaga came
up before Magistrate Baird for preliminary bearing, when he was charged
wilh shooting with intent to kill and
murder Wong Deen. Mr. P. P. Harrison appeared for the prosecution and
asked for a remand, which was granted, the case being- remanded to Friday
next.
Constable Dunbar and bis colleagues
have been searching the district for
the two desperadoes, but have as yet
failed lo locate them. The feeling is
that I hey are either hiding in the
hills or are endeavoring to leave tho
district.

Council Adopts
Boulevard Plan
(Continued from Page One)
and a communication from the Medical
Fund in the same connection was also
read. It appears that Infectious cases
do not come under the Medical Fund
contract for treatment by the General
Hospital, consequently the hospital
disclaims any responsibility in the
matter. As the cases came from outside the city, the Council claims It has
no jurisdiction but is a matter to be
settled by the Medical Fund and the
government.
Responsibility Undecided.
A bill was received from the Cumberland & Union Waterworks Co. Ltd.
for water on account of the Isolation
Hospital. As this is thc first bill to
be rendered In this connection the
Council decided to pay it, but will look
to thc occupier of the hospital to pay
tlie rate In future.
The total receipts for the Memorial
Arch funds amounted to $952.91.
Committee lteports.
The Board of Works reported good
progress on the clearing of Derwent
Avenue below Fourth Street.
I Aid. Francescini, chairman of the
Health Committee, said the town was
fairly clean, hut be had received several complaints of rubbish being
dumped at the park and set fire to,
becoming a nuisance to nearby residents. The practice should be discontinued, said thc alderman.
The Board of Health will visit the
locality and report at next meeting on
the best means of overcoming the
trouble.
Aid. Brown suggested the erection
of a cheap incinerator, similar to those
used by the armies overseas.
Aid. Pickard asked a question as to
the status of the newly-acquired
school ground, saying one or two
ratepayers were insisting that money
could not legally be spent on these
grounds by the city as they were outside the city boundary. The speaker
contended that steps should be taken
to Incorporate this portion into the
city.
Mayor MacDonald suggested that
this be done at the next election, to
save expense, as a bylaw would have
to be submitted to a vote of the ratepayers.
Taxpayers Oversley Payment Date.
Some more or less heated discussion
ensued regarding payment of taxes a
day or two later than the date stipulated on the tax notices. Two or three
persons had delayed paying on the
due date and contended that they
should not be penalized on that account.
Aid. Pickard thought some discretion should be shown in the matter
and such cases provided for.
The Mayor and City Clerk explained
that the law is very clear in this regard and the City Clerk had no alternative but to impose the penalty. Had
he failed to impose the 10 per cent,
penalty he would have laid himself
open for trouble with the provincial
authorities for violation of the act.

Will Sing from Top of llo-Ilo Theatre
Chief White Elk will sing from the
top of the Ilo-llo Theatre at 7 o'clock
on Thursday night. The performance
will start immediately following this
feat.
On Tuesday last the Victoria Colonist devoted nearly a column to praising the first appearance of this show
In the capital city. It says: "That
something new, something picturesque,
and something which will appeal to
all "movie fans" is now being pro
duced at the Variety Theatre was
manifested yesterday with the appearance of Chief White Elk, his wife, and
the wonderful film, 'Before the White
Man Came,' Chief Elk made his debut
before the Victoria public at noon y
terday when he sang from the roof of
Spencer's building, and later was
present at the theatre in his magnificent costume, which In itself is well
worth a visit of inspection.
"From the tip of the chief's feat-
ered headdress to his heavily embroidered moccasins, White Elk is a
superb picture of an Indian chief. Thc
apron, or scalp bag, is beautifully
embroidered with wampum and Indian
money, and dates back a generous
hundred years, while the cuffs he
wears are encrusted with hieroglyphics emblematic of council and friend-
hip.
"White Elk is a chief of the Oklahoma Cheerokee Indians, and his wife
Is the last princess of the Klamath
tribe. Hor native costume has veen
valued at $5000. and In this dress,
over 200 hundred years old, and composed of 22 pounds of heads, she will
appear on Thursday at the theatre."

Do you enjoy heat? No? Then why
not try to cool off? We do try, and
try hard, but some of us don't know
how. There are the heat-producing
foods for example; excellent things
in winter—calculated to save the
lives of the Eskimos, but hardly what
one ought to choose for a meal with
the thermometer in the 90's. Yet how
many of us know what they are, so
that we may avoid them; and how
many of us care to know? C. Houston Goudiss puts the case strikingly
In an article on "Foods That Cool," iu
the People's Home Joural. Mr. Ooudlss
notes that iu summer we often see
automobile-drivers bring their cars
to a stop and get out and seo it the
engine is too hot. No one thinks of
this as unusual. But the sarao man
will alight at a hotel or restaurant,
doff his duster, wash his hands and
luce, and proceed to Injure his own
human machinery ln Just such measure as be has tried to protect that of
his car. To quote Mr. Goudiss' words
"iVith a meal of heavy foods, rich
enough in fat and energy-producing
elements to satisfy the winter needs
of a dweller In the far north, he will
endanger not only his personal comfort ou this summer day, but also his
physical and mental efficiency.
"Compared to the engine in his
body, the engine in his waiting car Ib
a crude, rough affair that can stand
no end of punishment. Indeed, the
watch he carries iu his pocket is not
so delicately constructed and sensitively balanced as his own digestive
machinery—his stomach and intestines.
"Vet does he stop on a hot summer
day to think about this machinery; to
consider whether or not tbe food be
eats (the fuel by which It is run) ls
overheating it; whether or not this
food is suited to the Immediate needs
of this most delicate machinery? In
nine cases out of ten he does not.
"In nine cases out of ten, men,
women aud children never atop to
think that the excessive heat of summer necessitates strict attention to
diet, and that this attention not only
pays immediate and large dividends
in health, but ls the real secret of
keeping cool in hot weather.
"We eat food for five main reasons
—for heat, energy, blood-regulation,
tissue-building, and repair, and the
maintenance ot that marvelous balance between the working of the vital
organs. The temperature of the body
lu health is the same in summer as ln
winter. But the work ot the body
machinery is different in several ways.
"In the first place, elimination of
moisture is much more constant and
noticeable in summer than in winter.
That ls why thirst is so prevalent
during hot weather. And when we
come to a consideration of thirst, we
approach one of the main causes for
summer discomfort.
"With the thermometer ln the 90's
and little or no air stirring, with the
mind intent upon the wilting effect
of the humid atmosphere and the body
wearied by its attempts to overcome
the fatigue incident to such condl
tions, nothing seems more tempting
than an Iced drink. But before you
life the frosted glass to your lips
and this applies to any liquid from
water to ice-cream soda—let me ask it
you ever noticed a pan of potatoes or
prunes or any other foodstuff boiling
low and, to prevent burning, poured
iu some cold water?
"If so, you saw how quickly the
boiling ceased; it was some moments
before the bubbles came back.
"Now the food in your stomach does
not boll or bubble, but It is constantly
kept in motion so tbe digestive juices
may become thoroughly mixed with it,
aud this preparation for the real process ot digestion and assimilation in
the intestines ls carried on at an even
temperature—between 98 and 99 degrees Fahrenheit. Save tor the degree of heat, the comparison with the
pan of boiling food ls not Inapt. As
you swallow mouthful after mouthful
of the ice-cold liquid, you do to your
stomach exactly what the cold water
does to the boiling liquid in the pan
—you chill its action and halt its
function.
"It Is necessary to drink more in
summer than In winter, but no iced
liquid ever should be allowed to enter
the stomach, and all cool drinks should
be slowly sipped. One real hot-
weather danger is the tendency of the
kidneys to neglect their work because
of excessive perspiration which carries off tiie body moisture. But perspiration does not perform the function of the kidneys in eliminating
poisons, and as warm-drinks are kidney-stimulators, It Is unwise to neglect altogether their use during hoi
weather. In fact, large quantities of
water should be taken to supply sufficient for body-evaporation and to keep
the kidneys active."
The real cooling influence of any
summer drink, Mr. Goudiss reminds
us, Is Its power to Increase elimination ot moisture and thus, through
evaporation keep the surface of the
body cool. Hence the wisdom ot partaking only of drinks whose temperature is such as to hasten rather than
hinder the process of digestion. He
continues in substance:
"I have emphasized drinks because
they are the first food we think about
in summer. It you want to quench
your thirst In summer without unduly
heating your blood, stick to cool water
—varied, if you choose, with a little-
lemon, orange, lime, or other fruit
juice.
"Most persons eat too much meat
the year round. What the body does
not need tor building and repairing
tissue must be taken care of, and this
excess Is burned as fuel, and there-
lore creates more heat.
"Use meat as a flavor and you have
its ideal summer service. Use milk
In place of meat and you lay the foundation for a degree of summer comfort such as you have never known.
"With eggs, cheese, and lish, milk
completes a list of perfect meat-substitutes for summer use.
"As a general rule we need only
about three-fourths as much food in
summer as in winter. And since there
are foods which will keep the body
machinery going without overheating
It, why not use them?"
If the man at the head of the (able
must have meat, says Mr. Goudiss,
satisfy his longing with a bit of cold
ham or tongue, a piece of chicken or
a small chop, a slice of veal loaf or
some jellied meat. At the same time,
surround him with a tempting array
of fresli vegetables, an enticjng naiad,
and a dish of fruit. Moreover:
"As they come along, servo him
plentifully with heel, Swiss chard,
Peas, spinach, string-beans, corn,
onions, lima beans! tomatoes, cucumbers, etc. Some of thcHi* may bo cooked
With a bit of meat, thus milling to (lie
flavor. And many ot them will pro
vide a generous portion of those
necessary lood element;, viiainine.
"I know hemes: In which salads aud
:ereals form the chief Hem ol dlol
luiiriK the Miuimer mouthB, aud in
which meal is almost wholly Ignored.
It Is u fact that In these homes I hour
less complaint about the bent, loss Insistence on weather topics, than any
place I go.
"The folk   who   live   in   II    eal
plentifully of fruit in summer.   When
it comes to desserts tbey emphasize
gelatine dishes, tapioca and cornstarch '
puddings, frozen-milk sherbets, watcr-
iees, and plain ice-creams:
Pure, plain ice-cream is a very nourishing food If eaten slowly. Oul l"
dump a dish of frozen cream tine the
stomach on lop of a warm meal which
already is being prepared tor dist'H-
tion is to throw a monkey-wrench into the works. Tlie stomach must
draw on the rest of tlie body for reserve power to raise tlie temperature
of the chilly mass to that ul* tno blood.
"The way you feel in summer is
dependent lirst upon tlie way you eat
If you are going to insist upon rood
which will atid to your body satli faction or overtax your body machinery
you will suffer. But if you will keop
your mind calm and your head out ol'
the sun, eat little meat and. avoid n
surplus of sweet, lizzy drinks, get siilii-
cient sleep and waste no (line le
thinking or reading ahout lite
you will have little cause for
plaint."

BEAUTIFYING THE CITY
In adopting ihe proposal of Mr. Vi. A. Owen tor a
boulevard to be placed in the improvement scheme ot the
two blocks on Dunsmuir Avenue, wo feel sure the City
Council lias acted wisely. Tlie two blocks from the Post
Office to Fifth Street are shortly to be graded and coated
■with tarvia. to conform witli the adjoining portion of the
street. The tarvia for this purpose is being subscribed for
by tho property ownors on the two blocks.
A 10-foot boulevard, containing shelter trees and lawn,
■will still leave 20*foel on either side for traffic, which in
this case will of course lie one-way. This space will be
ample, as instameil by the fact that the main street of
Nanaimo lias only 34 feet for vehlculer traffic, whereas
this avenue will still have forty feet after the boulevard is
provided for.
The beautifying effect will lie very great and give a
pleasing Impression t" visitors, as well as providing shade
from the hoi sum r sun.
Much credit is due to Mr. Owen for his persistent
endeavors to Improve the appearance of tlle town.
This example could lie copied with good effect on other
streets of tlie city. A lew shade trees planted on the sidewalks here and there would add materially to the comfort
of residents in summer as well as being pleasing to the
eye. Owners and occupiers of houses on tlie less Important streets would add considerably to the appearance of
their properties if they would slash tbe rank weeds that
grow so profusely in places, notably the Scotch thistle.
ALBERNI AND REAL ESTATE PROPHECIES
The following clipping from tlie Port Alberni News brings
to mind tlie wonderful literature put out by real estate
peddlers when selling city lots on tlie hills of Alberni
Canal a few years ago. According tn them Alberni was
destined to he one of Ihe great ports of the Pacific, at
•which Orient liners would make it their chief port of call,
passengers and freight being rushed over the Island, across
a bridge to lie erected over tlie narrows and on to Vancouver! Those were tin- happy days. However, the Alberni
paper gives a slightly different impression. It says:
Pheasants have nested in our back yard, a wild goose came
one day, uuenticed, to our woodshed, robins and sparrows
Hy into our shop through its open windows, ants have
gnawed enough material from the wooden sidewalk In
front of our oilice to complete a domain for themselves
close to our main doorstep. Last week a panther left itB
tracks through thc surrounding foliage; on Sunday the
home team won a baseball game, and today we can hear
the lively chatter of strange children ns they pick berries
from the bushes that grow wild up against the outer walls
of our printing house. It is a grand life in this wonderful
part ot the world, even without the existence of a government booze store.
They propose to licence cats in Vancouver. The licence
inspector whoso duly it will be to catch the stray ones
will have our sympathy.
Canada's share of the reparation wliieh Germany is supposed to pay the British Empire is $300,000,000. It ls not
expected that the amount of real money the Dominion will
receive from the Oermans will materially affect the financial barometer.
With reference lo tlie national destiny ot Canada, Rabbi
Hertz quoted tlie words of Lord Bryce on New Zealand:
"The grandeur and beauty of tlie country must somehow
mould and inspire the people. Those who inhabit such a
land can hardly have a' commonplace future."
It is all foolishness trying these less-exposure regulations for women's street costumes In Victoria until they
can stop the wind from blowing like it does.—Port Alberni
News.
An outstanding achievement of the Dominion Department of Agriculture is found in an official bulletin which
shows that we are large and careful exporters of a high
standard of fresh eggs to Great Britain while we continue
to import thc Chinese product for home consumption.
They call it a monarchy, but it is King George the Fifth
and Lloyd George tlie Four-Fifths.—Fresno Republican.
Humanity travels in cycles, say economists. The axiom
is especially Impressive iu connection with the air ships
planned tor the near future. Both tlie ships of the air and
the old-time sailing craft depend upon sails. The only difference is tliat tlie airships carry their sails horizontally
and manufacture their own wind.
As tlie Kamloops 'telegram remarks, overy flagrant
violation of tlie Liquor An makes prohibitionists. Mod-
crationi-ts wiio wanl lo retain their restored liberty should
be the last to condone anything of the kind.
The great tiling iu this world ls not so much where we
stand as in what direction we are moving. To reach the
port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind
and sometimes against it. but we must sail, and not drift
nor lie at anchor.—Oliver Wendell Holmes.
in session, but concluded without vote and without mention ln the Legislature. The proceeding evidently was
assumed to be perfectly Bate with the present Legislature,
because it is doubtful it any member supporting the Oliver
government Is In position to have Inquiry made into any
thing exemplifying the sources ot the fund which elected
him and his colleagues.
There is a financial "controller" as part of the top-heavy
civil service at Victoria, but this controller ls the creature
or creation of the party ln power, who found In office an
auditor-general not likely to countenance the irregular
issue of a cheque for any sinister transaction and so re-
moved him and placed the treasury under the control ot a
new man of their own choice. This is one of the results
The treasury in this case proved wide open to the political
raider.
There ls a purchasing agent as part of the expensive
machinery but he is not permitted to interfere with the
larger political grafts. He is good enough to arrange tor
the purchase ot a bottle ot Ink or a lead pencil, but when
a seventy thousand dollar property ls to be bought for a
hundred and fifty thousand dollars, from a party manager,
the purchasing agent ls relegated to Umbo. That Is quite
all right with the Oliver government.
For this we have the word, or the writing, which Is safer
to follow, of "Honest" John himself. Only an appeal to the
Lieutenant-Governor to take cognizance of the looting going on In his very presence, caused the Prime Minister to
take any publlc notice ot this bold graft. And he has come
out with a whole-hearted defence ot the thing. Because
his government a few months ago made a foolish lease
whereby they were to pay one of their henchmen the full
value of a warehouse as the rental for live years' occu
pancy of It, the Prime Minister argues that there Is a
virtue In substituting purchase at a price which repre
sents nine and a half years' rental!
The gravel pit purchase was under unwilling investigation when the liquor warehouse job was discovered. The
Investigator was a close personal friend of the Premier,
an employee of the government charged with the purchasing of properties for the Pacific Great Eastern mystery.
The Prime Minister's choice of investigator ls vindicated
from his standpoint, by the gravel pit finding made public
This official of the government finds that there was no
fault at all on the part ot any members of the Sewerage
Board who purchased a gravel pit they did not need and
have not used, at a price double that at which it was being
offered for sale by the owners, and he finds that the only
wrong committed was by the official of the government
service in South Vancouver who "lied" to the too-confidential board! He has censure, however, for two ot the
witnesses—a hint to any other "Liberals" who peach on
their government. When It is remembered that the man
who makes this peculiar finding ls the instrument chosen
by the Premier to make the purchases for the twenty
million dollar mystery being carried on under the name of
the Pacific Great Eastern, the ordinary taxpayer has cause
for so little worry.
A million dollars or more has been lent to friends of the
ministry and others to promise the establishment ot industries more or less spectacular. But for the homely Industry ot farming on Nleomen Island, for Instance, it seems
Impossible to find any money. For live years there has
been before the Oliver government an offer from Ottawa to
spend about eighty thousand dollars or more tor the protection of that Island on condition that Victoria would
contribute a quota estimated at twenty thousand. As a
clincher to his others "reasons" for not accepting this offer
Mr. Oliver stated recently that there being no apporpria-
tion by the Legislature the money could not be found by
his government. But why ls there is one standard for the
finding of money to buy a warehouse at twice its market
value, and another and stricter one when money is needed
to save Bettlers—and soldier settlers at that—from ruin?
These are samples of the want of morals on the part of
the Oliver government. They constitute a novelty in British Columbia. Whatever may be said in criticism of provincial ministries of the past, their honesty has not been
questioned. It has remained for "Honest" John Oliver to
be sponsor for the first openly corrupt administration with
which this province haB been cursed.
LEARN TO SWIM
The law does not require anyone to learn to swim,
neither does It force people who are not swimmers to risk
their lives on the water. But as long as there are rivers,
seas and lakes on this earth, people will continue to avail
themselves ot the pleasures they offer. Therefore, common
sense requires that every man, woman and child who goes
on the water or who ever expects to go on the water
Bhould learn the art of swimming, at least to a degree
where they could, in case of necessity, keep themselves
afloat for a short period, says an exchange.
Inability to swim Is suicidal In many cases; sometimes
it Is even murderous. What of the man who, being unable
to swim, grab's hold of a swimmer and drags the latter
down to a watery grave? Did not the Inability of the lirst
result In the murder of thc swimmer?
But leaving out of consideration every law but the first
law of nature, does not desire for self-preservation demand
of everyone the ability to swim? It does unless one ls sure
that he will never get near enough to deep water to make
swimming necessary to save his life. Even then he may
fall into a well!
If people would only learn to at least keep themselves
afloat In the water for a tew minutes, thousands upon
thousands of lives wold be saved every year.
MORALS OF OLIVER GOVERNMENT
Under the above heading tho New Westminster Columbian has the following to say: This heading no doubt will
provoke a smile on tlie part of every reader familiar with
proceedings nt Victoria, for "morals" tbey have nix; but
an examination of the standards governing in lieu of
morals is particularly timely in view of the recent performances of master and man.
The liquor warehouse deal is typical and no more dishonest transaction of tlie Oliver government during its
whole career. Tflc parly management have been caught
red-handed with their bauds in the public treasury to
secure funds whet with to reward a henchman and incidentally to punish a backslider from the fold. The raid
was originated before the appointment of the Liquor Control Board, but complacently accepted by the Board, as
their very profitable positions depend upon their usefulness to the party in possession at Victoria.
Large expenditures are supposed to wait upon the vote
of the Legislature, but In this instance the Legislature has
been flouted by thc expenditure of a hundred and fifty
thousand dollars, under arrangements while the house was
HAPPY CHILDHOOD
Every child has a right to a happy childhood. The recollection ot a sunny childhood Ib an auspicious Inheritance and a splendid preparation for the strain and burden
of life. In China the first four or five years of a girl's life
are a continual agony. All the children In India are born
old. Go among the submerged masses In any of our great
cities and you will find childhood barren and desolate beyond description. To have this joy crushed out ot a little
life Ib a sorrowful tragedy that will shadow all Its future.
Grey skies will often weep above them in the after years;
see to It that, so far as possible, these early years are unclouded.   Let them have their childhood.
IF YOU HAVE THE MONEY
build that needed house now. Paint that dwelling, that
church, that school. Repair that fence and make the place
look more tidy. Build that highway—It Is badly needed.
Pave that street—it will help your town grow. Improve
the waterworks and extend the sewerage system, for they
will better the health of your town. Build that church,
that school, that courthouse, and go ahead with everything
that shows you a red-blooded Canadian, with faith in your
country. Now is the time for men—real men—to lead off
and do things. Cowards are only slackerB. The patriot
can do as much in this time of peace for his country as he
could do in war,   Let's play ball!— B. C. Record.

YOURTEETH
TEMPORARY TEETH
When They Are Abscessed
By REA PROCTOR MoGEE, Editor of
"Oral Hygiene."
It you had a pet rattlesnake around
the house it might not do you any
harm, but ot course you could not
reach an agreement upon that subject with the limited brain power of
tbe snake and so you would be taking a big chance that the armistice
would be broken.
Your child could have one or even
several abscessed temporary teeth
with no apparent injury to his general
health, but what assurance have you
that the apparently harmless collection of pus is not poisoning the child?
When the abscess really strikes and
becomes acute, then there ls no question about the damage It does.
Then abscesses may not only cause
rheumatism and heart inflammations
but the eyes and kidneys and any or
all of the bodily structures may be attacked.
When a temporary tooth abscess
burrows down the inside of the jaw
and getB behind one of the protective
walls of fibrous material that separates the layers of muscle In the neck,
a very serious infection develops
which is frequently fatal.
In order to save the life of the
child a very delicate operation must
be performed, and that quickly. Don't
take chances with abscesses of the
temporary teeth. They are not only
very dangerous, but the abscessed
teeth cannot be used and the good
teeth are not allowed to do their work
because one tender spot in the mouth
will Interfere with chewing.
Of course, the best plan to avoid
abscesses of the baby teetli Is to take
good care of children's teeth from the
day they appear.
This Is the easy method and it is
also the safe, sure method. Therefore
it is the common sense method. Begin at the beginning. Later may be
too late.

IPYORRHOEA CAN BE
PREVENTED AND CURED
That pyorrhoea is not the irresistible
enemy of the teeth that it has for years
been generally considered hy the public at large and by many dentists, wus
the emphatic contention of Dr. A. W.
Ward, of San Francisco, in a lecture
delivered In Vancouver before the
joint post graduate meeting of the
Washington, Oregon and British Columbia Dental Associations.
It is only recently that the Importance and possibility ot the prevention
and eradication of focal Infection
have been recognized, declared Dr.
Ward, who asserted that this branch of
dental science is at once the most Important, the most abused, and the least
thought of.
Dr. Ward contended that, except In
very advanced cases, pyorrhoea can
be cured and loose teeth will tighten
up again of themselves after the existing infections have been cleared
away and the basic cause of the disease removed. He quoted cases, including those of persons suffering
from consumption, diabetes and other
diseases, to prove the self-recuperative power of the teeth and gums
when properly assisted.
Root of tho Evil.
Uneven side stresses, caused by
failure of the teeth to meet properly
in the processes of biting and mastication, he intimated, were the root of the
evil, and the grinding ot these surfaces
to permit perfect harmony of action
absolutely prevents the future occurrence of pyorrhoea. In cases where
the disease already exists, every vestige of diseased tissue must be removed, and only ln desperate cases Is
this Impossible.

It may appear startling, but it is a
fact that if all the insect pests ravaging our crops could be suppressed,
and all the plant and tree diseases
eradicated, and the increased revenue
derived by the country thereby could
be turned into the Dominion Treasury,
there would need to be no question of
taxation. This idea is largely substantiated by the fact set forth hy the
entomologist of the Dominion Department of Agriculture that a conservative estimate of the annual loss in
Canada to Held, orchard and garden
Insects is upwards of $200,000,000. As
our authority says: "To this huge de-
vastatloil must he added the enormous
annual destruction oaused by forest
Insects, stored product insects, etc."
CJpon tliis statement the entomologist
founds a well-sustained argument in
favor of the protection of insectivorous birds, such us the prairie horned
lark, the robin, the somewhat de
splsed crow, the red-breasted nut
hatch, the western tanager, the myrtle
warbler, tlie chickadee, grouse, gulls,
anil many other kinds.
ln the state of Iowa it has been estimated that tree sparrows annually devour something like 896 tons of weed
eeds! Speaking of the robin, an investigator in Toronto found tbat a
single bird kept in confinement ate
165 cutworms in one day. Another
authority states tliat a brood of prairie
horned-larks consumed 400 cutworms
in one day. This same authority,
namely, Mr. Norman Criddle, Dominion entomologist in Mnnitobn, declares that six crows are capable of
consuming three bushels of grasshoppers in one season. It is recorded
that in certain places in Manitoba
have been saved from destruction by
thc pestilent grasshopper owing to tlie
presence of a large (lock of gulls;
In light of these facts it is gratify
ing to be informed by the Dominion
entomologist, Mr. Arthur Gibson, that
the importance of protecting our useful birds is becoming more and more
recognized, especially by farmers and
fruit-growers.

Sane progress, both in engineering and body design,
won the unquestioned leadership in motor car sales
enjoyed by the McLaughlin—"Canada's Standard Car."
Thus the Master Six is better known and more widely
used by business men than any other high-quality car.
This nation-wide acceptance has created for the
Master-Six a fixed value that makes its purchase a
sound business investment.

"HEUOTROPE"
A Tremendously Appealing Picture Drama of a Father's Love
For His Daughter.
To motion picture devotees who have
wondered whether a popular photoplay could be produced In which sex
love would not be the predominant
theme, the phenomenal success of
"Humoresque" came as a convincing
answer. "Humoresque" will be shown
at the Ilo-llo Theatre shortly.
Now Cosmopolitan Productions, who
made "Humoresque," the great pic
ture of mother love, have come forward with "Heliotrope," declared to
be an equally great picture of father
love. It was adapted from Richard
Washburn Child's story of the same
name.
"Heliotrope" is the deeply appealing
drama of an ex-convict's supreme sacrifice in giving his life to insure the
happiness of his daughter, who
throughout It all remains innocent not
only of his heroic deed, but of his
very Identity.
Alice Hasdock, the daughter, is a
convent girl who, spending a vacation
at the millionaire home of her best
chum, falls ln love with the son of the
house, and they become engaged.
Alice has not seen either of her parents since her babyhood and thinks
she is an orphan. Her father ls
'Heliotrope Harry" Hasdock, serving
a life sentence In the penitentiary.
Her mother, Josephine Hasdock, is a
thoroughly bad character, an accomplice of crooks. To "Heliotrope
Harry" in his cell comes the news
from a former pal that his wife is
planning to blackmail Alice. Her
scheme is to reveal herself to the girl
as her mother, threaten her with an
expose of the fact that her father ls a
convict, and thus extort money from
Alice's millionaire-fiance. "Heliotrope" is half-crazed with rage against
his wife and anxiety for Alice, whom
he loves dearly. In his despair he
goes to the kindly warden and begs
release from jail to save his daughter.
Through the warden's appeal to the
governor of the state, "Heliotrope" is
granted a pardon, but only on condition that no violence be done to MrB.
Hasdock by his hands.
"Heliotrope" agrees. His scheme
of revenge Is more subtle than that.
How he works It out and how finally
he places his villainous wife in a position where she will never be able to
harm Alice ls worked out in a picture
that for sheer appeal and dramatic
suspense is said to have been seldom
equalled on the screen. Frederick
Burton, Diana Allen and Wilfred Lyell
Interpret the chief roles iu "Hello-
trope." It is a Paramount picture,
and will be shown at the Ilo-llo on
Saturday.

CRONK BRINGS AN IDEAL
AUTOMOBILE INNER TUBE
.Mr. E. J. Cronk surprised his friends
when he blew Into town Wednesday
evening on a brief business trip to the
district. "Teddy" looks the same as
ever, only perhaps a little more so,
minus the red coat of the mounties.
.Mr. Cronk is here In the Interest of
some agencies he has for the Island,
one of which Is an American invention, an auto tube that Is practically
non-puncturable and unwearoutable.
If It does get a minor puncture it will
automatically close up, but should a
big spike puncture the tube it is only
the work ot a few moments to close
the hole.
Mr. Cronk   is meeting  with   ready
sales of this tube, as It only requires a
glance to see the great benefit to be
derived from equipping cars with
them. Another line Mr. Cronk is
handling is "Motorllfe," which greatly
increases the efficiency of the motor
and saves 25 to 50 per cent, in gasoline bills, a very important considera
tlon In these days of high-price gas.

A gift of flowers from her husband! And their perfume froze her soul!
For now she knew that "Heliotrope Harry" was free. Out of prison to

blackmailing mother! Yet he never lifted a hand against her. His victory was far more terrible—for more noble—than that. "Heliotrope"
stands as the greatest story of father-love ever filmed.
