RESULTS IN
CIVIC ELECTIONS
The municipal election for the
Corporation of the City of Cumberland passed off quietly on
Thursday, although very disap-
apointing to our opponents. The
results were highly satisfactory
to those who were at all times
considering the best interests of
the city. It has taken the electors
three years to remove the Socialists from their seats at the
Council Chamber. The final shot
was fired when the returning
officer announced the following
results on Thursday evening: -

LOCAL NEWS.
I The following steamers are due

A communion service will be
held in the Methodist Church tomorrow evening. The table is
the Lord's, and open to all His
people.
Mr. W. H. Peterson, of New
York, is a distinguished visitor to

The Cottage Meeting in connection with the Methodist
Church, will be held next Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock at the
home of Mr. and Mrs.Hendricks,
Cumberland West.
Gordon Gillespie, the eight-
year-old son of Dr. James A.
Gillespie, met with an unfortunate accident by being struck by a
motor car, causing a fracture of
the skull. It appears that thc
boy was standing outside his
home in Vancouver on the street
when an automobile came along,
knocked the boy out of the road
and passed on without paying
any attention to the accident. A
phone message last evening from
Vancouver stated that the boy
would recover. Dr. Gillespie was
at one time resident physician to
the employees of the Canadian
Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., and
since leaving here has become a
noted surgeon with a extensive
practice in Vancouver.
DEBATING SOCIETY
The most successful debate of
the season took place on Monday
night,   and   the   crowded   hall
showed a lively interest in thei
subject.
The president called on Mrs.!
Hood, who led off in the affirma-
ative: " Resolved that it is to the j
best interests of the community
to give women the franchise."
Miss Towlie and Mr.  Banner-
man ably supported the leader.
For the negative Mr.  Coates I
had put on all his armour and had
J. C. Brown and W. Telfer as his
supporters.
Many strong arguments were
given and quite a number had
some say in support of the ladies.
Miss O'Neill got home some
brilliant shots in favor of women's
suffrage and her pithy arguments
lent weight to her side.
both sides had gone to many
countries for references in support of their cause, but the strong
current of opinion seemed to be
favour of women's suffrage,
which seemed to give the opposition all the more zest in prosecuting their side of the argument.
Mr. Richards, teacher, was
appointed judge, and after careful deliberation he gave his decision in favour of the affirmative,
who had the best of the argument
The expressions of opinion by
those present were very favorable
in support of the splendid debate
and great credit is due the leaders for the way they handled the
subject,
Next Monday night the subject
for consideration will be, "What
Causes War?" This should
prove of great interest, and no
doubt the hall will be packed, as
so many will have something to
say otfthis. The meeting will
start at 8 o'clock, prompt, so be
on time.
The financial statement of the
Ladies Auxiliary of the Comox
and Union Hospital is as follows:
Balance in hand Jan. 1914 $155.49
Auxiliary dues     24.80
Interest from bank        1.98

arrive on Monday and be present
at the meeting.
MACRAE'S MEMORY
IS VINDICATED
Sir Richard McBride^ desires
the following public statement to
be made as public as possible:--
"There appears to be a persistent rumor which has gained considerable currency in the province
that my late secretary was associated with thc stealing and manipulation of plans of home defence and that thc discovery of
his complicity therein was the
cause of his death. Since returning from my recent visit to the
East I learned that some such
rumor had been published in a
Seattle paper, but I paid no attention to it other than as a phase
of newspaper sensationalism. It
never occurred to me that in British Columbia, where Mr. Macrae
was well known, any heed would
be paid to it.
"It is a painful subject for me
to discuss, but in justice to the
memory of one who never betrayed a trust or was disloyal to
his country in thought, word or
deed, I must state most emphatically that the rumor is without
the slightest possible foundation.
The circulation of such stories,
wilfully or otherwise, is a cruel
reflection upon my late secretary
and painful in the extreme to.
relatives and friends.
"Mr, Macrae had been suffering for many months with a nervous ailment, and his untimely
death cannot in the slightest degree be regarded as a reflection
in any way upon his honor as a
man or a citizen."
The late Mr. Macrae was well
known in Nanaimo having been
editor of the Free Press for two
years'.

SATURDAY,   JANUARY 16th,. 1915.
, t /earn to laugh. A good laugh is better than
'<P* medicine. Learn how to tell a story. A(
good story is as welcome as a sunbeam in a sick
room. Learn to keep your own troubles to yourself. The world is too busy to care for your ills
and sorrows. Learn to stop croaking. If you can;
not see any good in this world, keep the bad to
yourself. Learn to hide your aches and pains
under a pleasant smile. No one cares to hear:
whether you have the earache, headache or the
rheumatism. Learn to meet your friends with a:
smile. The good humored man or woman is always welcome, but the dyspeotic or hypochondriac
is not wanted anywhere, and is a nuisance as well.
jl T is generally conceded that to a great extent
<»-. the mother makes the home, yet altogether
too few of us realize this regarding ourselves. Are
we not too prone to look at and criticize others
while our own methods are in need of improvement? It is like seeing the mote in a brother's
eye while the beam is in our own. Very few of us
can scan our neighbors without finding many
things upon which we could improve.
SS?
December is that one month of the year
when the conduct, or deportment, of the
average child improves about ninety-nine and nine-
tenths per cent. This change begins to manifest
itself early in the month and continues to grow
until the twenty-fifth when a perfect halo of innocence and virtue illuminates their faces. If we
could have three or four Christmases a year the
reform schools would have to go out of business.
t~T means a great deal to be a home-maker,
not a mere housekeeper, but to make a true
happy home, one which children may look back
upon with pleasure when in after years they have!
left it far behind, and the mother who made it so!
is sleeping in the narrow house whose roof is the
green covering of the sod.
IV E WISH every mother could dream this
dream: " The world may spare her but
her home cannot." There are no children but
need a mother's care and love. They are more
responsive and obedient to a tie of blood than to a
lie created by law. Does she enquire, then, how
can she economize her forces that they may last;
how she can burn less fuel, that her little fire of
life may burn brightly and long ? My answer is,
Let women try to give to things their true importance. It will make no difference in a week's or a
year's time how windows and woodwork look today ; it will make a difference whether the chidren
are properly nourished physically and trained
mentally. Learn to do the most important things
first, and if your strength ebbs, learn to let the
minor things wait. Try to get something out of
life for all you put into it. Enjoy something today
for tomorrow maynnever be yours. People ought
lo get more-than an existence with such help as
sunshine and song, laughter and friendship.

1£|§|HE successful
1_§H men are those
who have worked while their neighbours' minds were
vacant, or occupied
with passing trivialities ; who have
been acting while
others have been
wrestling with indecision. They are the
men who have tried
to read all that has
been written about
their craft; who
have learned from
the masters and
fellow craftsman of
experience, and profited thereby; who
have gone about
with their eyes open
noting good points
of other men's work,
and considered how
they might do it
better. Thus they
have risen above
mediocrity, and in
striving towards
perfection have educated themselves in
the truest manner.

JAMES STEWART, Auditor.
The sum of $4350.65 has been
received up to the end of last year
by the Department of Agriculture
at Victoria, from the Farmers'
and Women's Institutes of this
province, towards the Farmers'
and Women's Institutes Patriotic
Fund. The total amount collected
will be donated to His Majesty's
Government, to be utilized by
them as they may think best towards the alleviation of suffering
and distress caused by the war in
European countries. This practically means that it will be used
to help the Belgians, that indomitable race who, by their heroic
stand at the beginning of the
i war, undoubtedly saved the situation, and who, in consequence
of this righteous defence of their1
hearths and homes, have had
their country ravaged and laid'
waste, and are suffering untold
hardship and misery.
