Aid. Beveridge Appointed Ban.
Truitee to Look after the
City Band Instrument*.
The first meeting of the newly
elected Council took place in tht
Council Chamber on Monday
evening. Magistrate Abrams administered the oath of office tc
Mayor and Aldermen also Schocl
Trustee. There were present
His Worship Mayor Campbell,
Aldermen Maxwell, Aspeci, Beveridge, Richards, Coe, and Miller.
Judge Abrams administered the
oath and handed the Mayor the
gavel and seal of the corporation.
In doing so he said in part that
the Council had four new members at the helm as aldermen. He
wished the new council a prosperous year, and thought they would
use their best efforts for the
interest of the city.
S< Whereupon Mayor Campbell
took his seat at the head of the
table and called the meeting to
.order. He said before they made
a start it would be best to outline the financial affairs of the
city. They commenced business
with an overdraft of $3,200. He
did not know what the estimates
would be for the Public School,
but he could not see how the city
could stand for any increase. The
work of the council depends upon
the energetic efforts put forth by
the various committees to be
""appointed. He was well acquainted with the individual members
of the board and he felt assured
that they would work for the
welfare of the city and in harmony together. He was pleased
to occupy the chair as chief
magistrate for the City of Cumberland, and he knew the Aldermen would support him during
the year. He then invited the
Aldermen to express their views.
Aldermen Maxwell said he was
pleased to be there for the third
term. He saw several new faces
around the table. The election
gave him a surprise. The electors
having placed confidence in him
he was going to see that he did
not betray them. Rome was not
built in a day. He thought the
Aldermen would do well to
express their views in the Council Chamber and not at the street
corners. He remarked that it
had been said that he headed the
Socialist ticket. He wished it to
be known that he was not a
Socialist, and did not go there to
discuss politics and did not intend
to do so during 1913. With a few
remarks as to how the Mayor
should conduct his office he resumed his seat.
" Alderman Aspecia said he was
green at the business but would
endeavour to post himself.
Alderman Beveridge said he
believed in justice to one and all.
Alderman Richards said he was
something like Alderman^specia
he did not have much knowledge
of the business. He took office
to do his best. It had been said
that he was one of the solid six
Socialists. He did not know that
he was a representative of any
political party, he went there to
represent Cumberland.
Alderman Coe said he was going to do his duty and vote for
what was right. He had always
been a Socialist.
Alderman Miller expressed
himself by saying as far as the
work of the city goes he would do
his best. He thought the old
Council would be glad to give the
pew Council a helping hand.   A
kind word went a long way on
both sides.
The City Clerk then read the
minutes of the final meeting of
last year's council, which were
adopted as read.
City Clerk McKinnon tendered
his resignation, which was laid
over for discussion at next meeting.

Mayor Campbell then stated
that seeing there is quite a crowd
present someone may have something to say.
J McAllister accepted the opportunity and said he had acted as
scrutineer for Mr Campbell at the
municipal election and was denied
the right to look at some of the
papers which were contrary to
Section 58 of the Act. He wanted to know what the Council was
going to do about it, he had got
legal advise on the matter.
Aid Maxwell said it would serve
as a lesson for the next election.
The City Clerk, who acted as
returning officer, explained his
side of the case to the satisfaction
of the Mayor and Council. The
matter was dropped.
George Peacock also expressed
his views and requested the
Mayor to provide chairs for the

Output of 390 ton* of Coal in
Eight Houri it Record in the
Hiitory of No. 5 Mine.
No. 4 Mine, it appears, is not
the only mine owned by the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd.
that has recently broken all previous records. No. 5 mine is the
next to fall in line with an output of 390 tons of coal in eight
hours, that being the amount of
coal hoisted at that mine from 7
o'clock to 3 o'clock on the 11th
day of January, 1913. The previous record for No. 5 mine was
345 tons in eight hours. And this
record of 390 tons was accomplished during this so-called
' 'strike.'' For the benefit of the
doubting Thomases, agitators and^
the remnants of the local union,
who reside here to-day, should
they think our statements false
we will give them the privilege
of refuting it through the columns
of this paper.
We would like to draw a comparison between the output of
No. 5 mine now and prior to the
strike, and it will be easily seen
that there is no strike in Cumber
land. No. 5 mine, with the other
mines, is now working with its
full complement of diggers, drivers, timbermen and bosses, and
is now producing on an average
over 300 tons per day of eight
hours only and without any places
working on the night shift. This
will prove that the mine is producing more coal to-day than ever
it did before the agitators thought
of declaring the holiday. Prior
to the union taking their holiday
the average daily run of No. 5
mine for eight hours was 270
tons, and at that time there were
several places working on the
night shift loading what empty
cars that may be left in the mine
thus preparing for the morning
shift to hoist coal. Now the local
union will realize that No. 5 mine
is today producing more coal with
the Socialists walking around
Cumberland discussing strike
and labour commissions, etc.,
than it was when they were
working, and we understand the
miners who are now working No.
5 mine to its full capacity are
making big money and are perfectly satisfied with the conditions as they exist. The only cry
is this, if the Socialistic agitators
would migrate or keep their time
fully occupied by working for
their existence instead of idling
around town passing sarcastic
remarks about those who are
working Cumberland Would soon
recover, But the time is not far
distant when the Socialists of
Cumberland vill be like those of
Nanaimo—an unknown quantity.
We would suggest that the idlers
that they take this statement of
facts as a sleeping draught and
sleep away the severe attack ot
'agitation' from which they evidently suffer.
The Nanaimo Free Press of Saturday the 18th inst., says:
"There is a rumor in the city
to-day of a settlement pending
between the strikers at Cumberland and Ladysmith and the Canadian Collieries Ltd. Whilst the
news come to hand on the eve of
going to press, we have every
reason to attach much credibility
to the information."
The same paper in its edition of
Monday, the 20th inst., says:
"Referring to a statement in
our columns on Saturday as to
the possibility of the Cumberland
strike trouble being settled, it
may be said that a mine official
is visiting Nanaimo, who intimates to the U.M.W. of A. that he
is empowered to treat and terminate the present disagreement if
the representatives of the men
can agree on terms. Negotiations
are under way, a little delay being occasioned by the absence of
certain officials of the U.M.W. of
A. in Seattle on matters affecting
their organization."
A representative of the
Islander has made careful enquiry here regarding the above
statements and can get no inform
ation whatever that woul'd substantiate the news given out by
the Nanaimo paper. A3 we understand the situation there is no
likelihood of the Canadian Collieries ever making any overtures
to the U.M.W. of A. for the purpose of effecting any settlement
whatsoever; in fact, it has been
said the coal company has no settlement to make. The mines are
working every day and the U.M.
'V. of A. has become an organization of the past as far as the
Comox mines are concerned. The
local union took a "holiday" and
the few members remaining are
out of a job.
The News of January 22nd says
that Percy K Winch has another
letter on the Cumberland strike
in the Victoria times of January
18th. There is as much truth in
Percy's writings concerning the
strike in Cumberland as there is
in his panther story published in
the Nanaimo papers some time
ago. We understand that Percy
shot it with a gold bullet.
Ladysmith Municipal Election!,
The Non-Partisan ticket completely swamped the Socialists in
the recent municipal elections at
Ladysmith. George Hillier was
elected Mayor with 45 of a
majority over his opponent,
Richard Morgan.
Aldermen elected for the East
Ward were E. G. Pannel, S.
Lauderbach. For the West Ward
D. Davidson, J. A. Knight. For
the Middle Ward, John Bickle,
G. W. Scott, William Siler. School
Trustees, William Anderson, A.
D. Robertson and James Gourley.
The regular meeting of the
Conservative Association was
held in the committee room on
Saturday evening. Robert Henderson acted as chairman in the
absence of President Donald R.
McDonald. After the reading of
the minutes of the previous meeting and a communication from
H. S. Clements on railway matters, the Chairman pointed out in
a few appropriate remarks that
the time had arrived for the
annual election of officers. The
following were nominated and
elected to act for the year 1913 :
Robert Henderson, president;
Wesley Willard, vice-president;
John S. Bannerman, secretary;
Thos. Bickle, treasurer; executive
committee, Donald R. McDonald,
John N. McLeod, Frank J. Dalby,
Edward W. Bickle, J. H. Mc
Millan, Hugh Sloan, William Hay-
man, Robert Grant jr., and Jas.
Several new applications for
membership were received and
accepted. A considerable amount
of important business was Iran?
acted, committees appointed to
go into detail work. Other important matters were laid over
by motion until next meeting.
Enjoyable Sk'igh Party.
A sleighing party was held
last night week composed of
Maggie Richards, Annie Mitchel,
Rachel Cunliffe, Gladys Parks,
Josephine Balagno, Annie Wil-
cock, Ruth Haywood, Edward
Palmer, Jack Ramsay, and thc
best of drivers Leslie Palmer.
The destination was the home of
their teacher, Mias Charlotte Mill-
igan, at Sandwick. A hearty
welcome was accorded the party,
and after a hot supper a select
programme of songs, etc. was
rendered. After a jolly evening
the party arrived home about
half-paii one.
Many Cases  Coma Up Before
Judge Abrams and are Dealt
With Summarily.
Judge Abrams had a busy day
at the City Police Court on Tuesday. Robert Izett appeared before the presiding magistrate
charged with being drunk and
using bad language, otherwise a
loose and disorderly person. Mr.
P. P. Harrison appeared for the
prosecution.—Henry J. Robinson
said he was a provincial constable.
On the evening of the 21st between 7 and 8 o'clock he was
standing in front of the Waverley
Hotel when the accused drew his
attention, who was on the opposite side of the street, by his
loud talking and foul language.
He went up to the accused who
was under the influence of drink.
Constable Smith gave similar
evidence.—M. J. Murry, provincial constable, said he was coming out of Eraser's barber shop
on the evening in question when
he saw the accused on the opposite side of street under the influence of drink and talking in a
loud voice. He followed him to
lock-up when Constable MeTag-
gart ultimately arrested him after
he had refused to leave. —Accused
was fined $10 and costs or in
default thirty days.
Albert Pickard was charged
with a similar offence and pleaded
guilty. He was fined $10 and
costs or 30 days.
Peter Dougherty was charged
.vith being drunk and disorderly
and was find $25 and costs or in
default four months with hard
George Pettigrew writing to
the Mine Workers Journal says
in part: In Cumberland the men
in the company houses have
nearly all found temporary homes
and only a few more remain to be
removed, ar.d in these cases a
large hall is being built to accommodate them. The rough lumber
was bought and a carpenter employed to supervise the work,
and it does one good to see the
hundred or more willing hands
at construction. Pettigrew goes
on to say the children of cumber-
land and Ladysmith to the number of nearly 1,200 were not forgotten by Santa claus. He
further states that the situation
in the strike area on the island
remains unchanged, and the few
men who started work quit during the past week.
We would like to ask Mr. Geo.
Pettigrew from what source does
he obtain his information. We
know of no men who have quit
work, but wo do know of a great
many satisfied workers and that
the output yesterday was nearly
fifteen hundred tons. Somebody
must be working.
With reference to the children
and Santa claus we would like to
ask Mr. Pettigrew how many
children thero are in Cumberland
and Ladysmith belonging to the
strikers? He says in the Mine
Journal 1,200. If he dropped the
thousand there might be 200.

The Ladysmith Chronicle of
January 21st says: " Mr. H.
Thornley requests the Chronicle
to state that he has now on hand
any quantity of Extension coal,
and will be able to supply all his
customers in future." Judging
from the above the U.M.W. of A.
must be fading away at Ladysmith also.
Those who are watching the.
shipments from Union Bay are
making very poor watchmen.
Their reports according to the
street talk are far from being
correct. If they told the truth
they would loose their job and
the weekly income would be a

purpose—first as a eonserver ot fioo.la
and. second, to develop newer. The

In    Paris,    some   horrible    scenes
of slaughter accompanied the revolt
of a number ot prisoners In the civil j
and naval prison of Rochefort.
The mutiiHf rs killed the chief ward-

were badly hurt. The mutineers
shut themsel*. es Into ono of the cells,
and when they were overpowered ono

the mutiny iianced himself. ;
The mutiny betan at l.ilft in the
afternoon, when the prisoners' evening meal wiis being taken around. Iti
began with a violent complaint against
the food by a navy cook, a man.
named Drabonnet.
The chief warder ordered the man]
to be quiei, and threatened him with
punishment, D-ahonnet who had a
razor hidden in his right hand, rushed I
at the chief warder, Archlnard. and!

and Drahonnet cut his throat.
Archinard's wife heard his shrieks

The assistant chief warder, Bonnet,
who had b"-»n in another part of the

and a pitched battle began in the corridors of the prison.
Drahonnet had found a long-handled
hatchet with which ho did terrible
damage, and a few minutes after the
death of his chief. Bonnet was killed
bv a crushing stroke of the ringleader's axe which cleft his skull ln
The fight had taken place on the
ground floor of the prison. The
noise was htard outside, and a lieutenant of Colonial lufantry, Lieutenant Pcrnin. who happened to be passing, rushed in to give assistance to the ]
warders. He received two knlfo

released, and outnumbering their jailors, they "•' oiled them and barricaded themselves in the in-lson.
An immense crowd of civilians, po-]
!i"e, gendarmes and soldiers surrounded the prison. Tho representative of
the government nnd the commissioner]
of police took com.ntand, and after |
three hours' selge the outer doors|
were forced. ,
The ground floor corridors were

cut off the electric light supply. I
An acetylene lamp was brought and1
the white walls- were seen to be drip-!

mutineer In sight, and in the middle
of the corridor lay the bodies of the
chief warder, his wife and his assistant. Mme. Archinard's head had
rolled down the corridor, and was
stopped by the open door ot an empty
cell. i
With every precaution the soldiers.'
and gendarmes and police, with revolvers ln their hands, marched up the
stairs to the second floor. The mutineers were waiting for them, and
when more doors were forced there
was a short but fierce hand to hand
A volley cowed the mutineers. One
of them, a sailor named Magnaud, was
found dead .n a cell. Behind him
the dead body of Drahonnet, the ringleader, hung from a nail in the celling.
The victims, dead and wounded,
were taken to tbe civil hospital and
all the mutineers were safely locked

"One day I received notice thnt a

these bills came In from all over the
city. One of tha persons nn whom they
were passed had submitted to be victimised Id order to catch ths perpetrs*
tor. Not being sure that ths hill was
counterfeit, he had pursued tbe same
course ns that pursued by tbe drug
clerk. Tbe person who bad offered ths
bill was a woman. She had been followed, and the huuae she entered wn«
watched. Rut she wss not seen making an exit nor did she ever again appear tn tbe watcher or sny oue else

With conditions that would be very

Haven't you seen mothers, not only
the young, Inexperienced mothers, but
women of mature years who ore old
enough to know better, constantly do-
lug things to their children that make
you want to shake them uiul If pos
Bible bring them to a sense uf reullza

Mothers will persist In allowing
themselves to grow old lu feeling. 01
course they cannot stay the passage
of years, hut they can keep young In
thought by making themselves n companion to their children, joining In
their piny as well as the inure serious
phases of their lives.
Mothers must take care not to let
themselves rust mentally. Tlie growing girl and hoy who cnu have mother

Never try to force your children'*
confidence, if you have tried to be
the chum of your child from the start
tbo cotihdeuce will be given unsolicited. ConHdences that are asked or demanded are always given grudgingly
nnd with a sense of resentment wben
they nre not refused altogether. Children never coutlde willingly In an unsympathetic mutber. The moment a

he will hide everything posslhle front

Avoid allowing a child to see that

What the Editor has to say.
Hos. Sydney Fishkr is quoted as having told a Quebec
audience that tlie Opposition might made it so hot for the
Government on the naval question as to bring about a dissolution of Parliament, This statement confirms the impression
generally prevalent at Ottawa as to the source from which Sir
Wilfrid Laurier has been getting advice to force an election.
The strongest advocates of a forced dissolution are known to be
i few e,r- Ministers who have no seats to lose and who are
eager for any sort of chance of getting back into the House from
which they were banished by popular vote.
The reopening of Parliament after the Christmas holidays
finds the Liberal party confronted with the necessity of choosing between two courses, with the future of Liberalism lor mail!/
years depending upon the choice. The Liberals can continue
to fight the Government proposal to aid the Empire in a time
of need, or they can accept wiser council from the better thinking men of their party, and assist the Government in passing
the bill by which Canada places three of the finest fighting
ships at the disposal of the Admiralty for the preservation of
the Empire and the maintenance of peace.
The despatch from Rt. Hon. Louis Harcourt, Secretary of
State for the Colonies, regarding the proposed representation
of the Dominions on the Imperial Defence Committee, shows
that the project has been carefully considered and maturetl
since the fitRt proposal of Sir Joseph Ward at the Imperial
Conference of 1911. The proposal was agreed to in principle
hy all the representatives at the Conference, including presumably, the members of tin then (Liberal) Canadian Government
In the movement of the markets wheat for delivery in
May is again quoted at higher figures in Winnipeg thau in
Minneapolis, the former being an export and Minneapolis a
milling centre. This has happened many times since the politicians of the Liberal partv discovered that the commercial
salvation of Canada depended upon the acceptance of theTaft-
Fielding plan for putting the Canadian farmer on the same
level as his neighbor in the United States at Minneapolis and
other places.
The Department of labour has been making a special investigation into conditions under which workmen are engaged
in the cities of eastern Canada for employment on the construction of the G.T. P. line in northern British Columbia, and
finds that complaint is made of exorbitant charges being made
by certain employment agencies; also that many workmen on
being engaged are shipped to the wilds without first providing
themselves with blankets, boots, overalls, shirts, and other nee*
ess-rins which are only to be had at high prices on the work.
As regards the latter point, the Inspector of the Department
of Labour, who recently visited Tete Jaune Cache on the G. T.
P. line in British Columbia, writes that he met workmen who
said they were told by employment agents that it was not nee
essury to take blankets and wearing apparel with them as they
could procure them at the camps at prices as low as in the
eastern cities. It is the Inspector's opinion that many of thtse
men, before working long enough to recoup the sub-contractor
for the outfit supplied, become tired of the job and commence
a weary walk out of the wilds to civilization. Since the latter
part of August last all workmen engaged for this work have
been transported from the place of engagement to the camp
free of charge, and this offer of free transportation to British
Columbia held out by eastern employment ar/ents has had the
effect of greatly increasing the Supply. The Government Inspector was told, however, that some agents had taken advantage of this generous offer on the contractors' part to secure
from applicants for work the highest fees they could obtain
and that the fees charged railway labourers ranged from 96.00
to $15.00 each.

The preacher says with prayer.
The physical culturists say with
calisthenics and plenty of two-
cylinder lung exercises.
The hot sports recommend a
jolt of Hudson Bay.
The boss says with a crowbar
and a jimmy and a club.
The general meaning in each is
the same. The thing that's
wanted is something that will invigorate, inspire and enthtse. The
largest percentage of failures in
all kinds of work take place at 8
in the morning.
The old-fashioned habit of
sweeping out in the morning had
a great virtue in showing the
keen-eyed clerk what was wrong
about the place and giving him
time to evolve a day's program.
The best way to bag a flock of
ducks is to aim specifically at one
of them every time.
The man with a daily program
is in a position to aim definitely
at one thing; and with a list before him it is two to one that he
will aim at the most important
thing first.
There is one method of being
intellectually great and that is by
hard labor. Generally speaking,
the lives of all truly great men
have been lives of intense and
incessant labor. They have commonly passed the first half of life
in the gross darkness of indigent
humility; overlooked, mistaken,
condemned by weaker men; think
ing while others slept; reading
while others rioted; feeling some
thing within them that told them
they should not always be kept
down among the dregs of the
world; and then when their time
was come and some little accident
has given them their first occasion they have burst out into the
light and glory of perfect life,
rich with the spoils of time and
mighty in all the labors and
struggles of the mind.

Prince** Charlotte and Prince**
Victoria to be Taken off for
Other Route*.
A very important statement of
the plans of the Canadian Pacific
Railway in reference to their
Coast service was made by Capt.
J. W. Troup, general manager of
the British Columbia Coast Service, in Montreal, after he had
consulted with the officials of the
Before he left the metropolis
he gave a statement of the company's plans to the press, the
tenor of which is as follows:
Two new steamships are to be
built as soon as possible for the
British Colum bia Coast Steamship
Service to .replace the Princess
Charlotte and Princess Victoria,
which are themselves new boats,
but in view of the rapidly expand
ing business of the company on
the Pacific coast and elsewhere,
are required for assignment to
other routes.
Capt. Troup admits that in view
of the British shipbuilding yards,
which are all congested with
business, owing to the recent
boom in shipping, his mission is
not an easy one, but he hopes to
lose no time in placing an order
for two very fast turbine steamers for the triangular route between Victoria, Vancouver and
The new steamers are each to
be about 5,000 tons register,
specially designed and adapted
for the British Columbia Coast
Servtce, and it was intended that
they should be the very finest
steamers of their class. There
was no fault to be found with
either of the boats they will replace. The Princess Charlotte
and Princess Victoria had more
than come up to expectations, but
they were wanted for other routes
as the business of the C.P.R. was
expanding in all directions so that
it was difficult to keep pace with
each new requirement as it arose.
With regard to the future of
Victoria.as a port, Captain Troup
is of opinion that it was hardly
possible to be too optimistic, especially in view of the impending
opening of the Panama Canal to
traffic. The general opinion in
the west is that by steamship to
Great Britain is the solution of
the problem presented by the
congestion of grain, and that
once the canal is open to traffic
much of the grain that is now
transported east by rail will be
shipped to Victoria for transport
by sea.
Capt. Troup expects to be absent in Great Britain for at least
two months, by which time he
hopes to have placed the orders
for the new ships and to have
seen the work undertaken in accordance with the design.
Dr. Kerr, dentist, will be at
Courtenay January 29th to February 8th inclusive.

Fifty Remedies Without Result,
Cured in Nine Days by Cuticura

30 Champa-gii- 8t.. Montreal, Quebec.—
** I have a five-year-old boy who was suffering from what tho doctor said waa "la
gratell-." Hia body was all
cov-rod with running aores.
The trouble started with
pimples and opened up Into
1 sores. Of course scratching
made It worse. Tbe eruptions appeared on his face
and disfigured him awfully.
«, The boy could not sleep at
1 night from the Itching and
pain, and I did not know what to do with
t.lrti. It made htm cross and fretful. If I
have tried one, I have tried fifty remedies
without result. At last I got samples of
Cuticura Soap and Ointment, and after
using them two days I noticed a change.
I then bought a full-slxed cake of Cuticura
Soap and one box of Cuticura Ointment and
I used to give the boy a hot bath dally
using Cuticura Soap freely, and then applied
the Cuticura Ointment. He had Buffered
three months with the horrible disease before I started to use tbe Cuticura Hoap and
Ointment, and nino days after tbe boy was
cured and bas not been troubled since,"

Leaves Berlin for Remote Corner of
Europe to Honor Austrian
At Baden, In the presence of
the kaiser, the wedding of Prmce-ia
Leontiiie Kurstenoerg, daugater of
Prince Max ftgou Furstenberg, tne emperor's most intimate friend, with
Prince Hugo Vinzenz zu YVindisch-
Graeiz took piuce at Douauesciiiugeu,
in Baden, where Prince Kuratenlierg
has his lamily seat.
The fact that tbe emperor consented
to leave Berlin for this remote comer
of southern Germany in time of acute
international crisis shows to what extent Prince Furstetiberg enjoys the
kaiser's friendship and affection.
Never, Indeed, has any one, save
members of the Imperial family, and
very few of these, been so close to the
German sovereign as Prince 1'ursten-
berg, and it Is an open secret that
were the latter a true-born German
and not an Austrian, as is the case, h"
would siiind a good chance ot becoming imperial chancellor one day.
The marriage celebration was
charming and gorgeous. The municipality hud oeen at pains to decorat"
the tiny city, which lies ln the milut
of the Swabian mountains, and tbere
were arches Jf triumph In every street.
The wedding gave occasion to great
demonstrations of loyalty on the part
of the villagers to the Furstenberg
The emperor arrived In Donauescn-
iogen early in the morning, and immediately after his arrival ln the old
family castle the marriage ceremony
was performed In the magnificent ancestors' hall by the-burgomaster nf
Donaueschlngen, a simple villager,
who seemed extremely bashful In the
presence of the kaiser and some 150
German ana Austrian princes.
A long procession of motorcars then
took the whole company to the small
village church, where the religions
marriage was celebrated. After tho
return of the married couple to the
castle, ail the Donaueschlngen peasants wore allowed to congratulate
nrinee and princess zu Wlndlseh*
Graetz, and were authorized to express
