PATRIOTS RECEPTION
On Monday evening the City Council,
the Board of Trade, and the Patriotic
Society held special meetings to make arrangements for the celebration of the
arrival home of Lance-Corpor&l Robert
Rushford, of the 42nd Black Watch Highland Regiment, from the front.
No time was lost in completing arrangements, for on Tuesday afternoon the
streets were gaily decorated with flags
and bunting. Evidence of loyalty and
patriotism were seen on every hand, all
seemingly anxious to extend a welcome
to Lance-Corporal Rushford.
Upon the arrival of the 4:45 train from
Nanaimo the Boy Scouts were lined up on
the station platform forming a guard of
honour, The City Council in a body, the
officers of the Patriotic Society and the
Board of Trade were nearby. Immedia-
lely below the West Cumberland Conservative Band played several patriotic airs,
including the " Maple Leaf Forever,"
" Rule Brittania," and " It's a Long Way
to Tipperary." Over five hundred school
children carrying flags were lined up on
the station grounds, under the direction
of the various teachers, then came a line
of automobiles gaily decorated for the
occasion. Crowds of people filled the
street and entrance to the station, all determined to give a hearty patriotic welcome. Such scenes were never witnessed
before in this city.
By the time the train had been brought
to a standstill His Worship Mayor Parnham stepped forward and, on behalf of
the city, read an address of welcome and
presented Lance-Corporal Rushford with
a purse of gold. This unexpected patriotic
reception proved too much for Rushford,
as he was unable to make any reply.
The vast assembly then gave three
rousing cheers for Rushford, the automobiles tooted their horns, the children
shouted and waved their flags.
Lance-Corporjd Rushford being escorted
to a gaily decorated car, the procession
started, led by the bagpipes; the school
children in pairs with the infant classes
takjng the lead, followed; the West Cum
berland Conservative Band, the Mayor
and Council in autos, the Boy Scouts,
Lance-Corporal Rushford and family: the
Cumberland Volunteer Fire Department
with decorated hose cart, officers of Board
of Trade in autos, and various others
followed, making a grand procession.
The line of march was along Dunsmuir
Ave. to Fourth Street, around the Islander
Building and up Derwent Ave., to Second
Street, down Maryport Ave. to the Hospital and Provincial Government Building
and down Third Street to the Rushford
home.
Lance-Corporal Robert Rushford was
wounded in action, shot through the lung
and badly smashed by a fragment from a
Jack Johnson, He was sent to the hospital in Boulougne and later invalided to
the Connaught Hospital at Aldershot,
where he received his discharge, leaving
England on April 16th for Cumberland.

fAIL, FRIEND!   For nobly have you earned this title in that when
the Empire's hour of peril came you responded with alacrity
to the call of duty, and have given of your best in repelling
your country's enemies.
Lance-Corporal Rushford, Cumberland is proud of you; proud of
your association with a gallant corps—the Black Watch; proud of your
cheerful response to the call duty; proud of your gallant conduct in face of
of the enemy; proud of the blood vou have shed in fighting your country's
foes, and proud of the honourable scars you carry, and we feel it is a great
honour to be permitted to welcome home one who has so valiantly upheld
those principles for which the whole of the British Empire and her gallant
Allies are now contending.
While we deplore the desperate nature cf your wounds and your
incapacity for further active service, we trust that you have still many
years of health, strength and usefulness before you.
In a relentless struggle such as is now raging in Europe, the " Last
Post" has sounded for many thousands, and you will no doubt render
sincere thanks to the Almighty Father for your wonderful preservation,
and the joy of once, again being reunited with your family. Your recollections of the enthusiastic loyalty of Canada, the throbbing patriotism of
the British Isles, the stirring scenes of France, the Battle of the Aisne,
the desolation and spoliation of Flanders, may in years to come grow dim
and fade from your memory, but the screech of shells, the shock of arms,
and the smoke and din of battle-wracked Ypres will' never be forgotten,
and this Flemish town of immortal fame has fittingly given a name to
the little girl who came into this world while her father was bravely
striving for King ^d Country.
In presenting this purse we ask you not to guage our esteem or our
gratitude by its size. Services such as yours are not remunerated in gold.
Rather will you find your recompense in the respect and regard which all
will offer to one who has fought and bled in his Country's service.
WELCOME HOME!
BOARD OF TRADE ELECTS OFFICERS
Rev. and Mrs. Wm. Elliott received a
cablegram on Tuesday informing them of
the death of their two boys at the front.
According to advices received later Pte.
Fletcher Elliott and his brother George
met their death on the field of battle in
a manner which shows that they were
fully worthy to uphold the great traditions
of the flag under which they served.
At the regular meeting of the Boird of
Trade held in the Council Chambers last
night the following officers were elected
for the ensuing year:
President, T. B. O'Connell.
Vice- President, W. E. Lawrence.
Secretary, Edward W. Bickle.
Treasurer. Alex. McKinnon.
Executive: Dr. Geo. K. MacNaughton,
Thos. E. Bate, Robt. Henderson, Wesley
Willard, and John N. McLeod.
The import duty of one cent per gallon
on fuel oil was again freely discussed. The
Board will renew their energies to secure
for the coal industry a measure of protection against the California product.
MEMORIAL SERVICE AT ST. GEORGE'S
A memorial service in honour of the
brave soldiers who have served their
country and sealed their testimony for
the Empire with their blood, and especially for George and Fletcher Elliott, two
sons of the Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Elliott, of
this city, will be held in St. George's Presbyterian Church to-morrow evening at 7
o'clock. Specially appropriate music,
anthems and solos will be rendered by
the united choirs of the Methodist and
Presbyterian churches, assisted by the
Cumberland Gleemen. Your presence at
such at service will express your
sympathy with sorely bereaved parents.
There will be no service in Grace Meth
odist Church on Sunday evening.
MANUFACTURERS SHOULD PAY
The special committee of the Vancouver
Board of Trade in dealing with the import
duty on fuel oil adopted the following resolution: "Resolved, that in the opinion of
this committe we deem it advisable to recommend to the Government that a protective tariff be place on fuel oil imported
into Canada, and that such tariff be not
levied on oil used for manufacturing purposes."
Evidently the Vancouver Board of
Trade has decided and will recommend
that the coal industry of this province
receive protection against California fuel
oil to a limited extent, but that the manufacturers be exempt from the import
duty on fuel oil. The Dominion Government gives the manufacturers a liberal
protection against foreign products and
there Ib no reason why the manufacturers
should be exempt from this import duty.
The Vancouver Board of Trade advance
no reason for the resolution; they simply
state that the manufacturers should be
exempt. It is to the interest of Vancouver
and every other board of trade in this province to secure an import duty on fuel oil
for all purposes, that the coal industry of
this Island may compete and exist on its
own maiket.

Victoria on Thursday morning.
TREACHEROUSLY SUNK
LONDON, May 8.—The Cunard liner
Lusitania, which sailed out of New York
last Saturday with more than 2000 persons
aboard, lies at the bottom of the ocean off
the Irish coast. She was sunk by a German submarine which sent two torpedoes
crashing into her side while the passeugers
seemingly confident that the great vessel
could elude the German underwater craft,
were having lunceon. How many of the
Lusitania passengers aud crew were rescued cannot be told at present, but the
official statements from the British ad-
up to midnight accounted for not more
than 500 or 600. The Lusitania was
steaming about ten miles off Old Head
Kinsale on the last leg of her voyage to
Liverpool when, about 2 o'clock in the
afternoon, a submarine suddenly appeared and, so far as all reports go, fired two
torpedos without warning at the steamer.
One struck her in the bows and the other
in the engine room. The powerful agents
of destiuction tore through the vessel's
side causiug terrific explosions. Almost
immediately great volumes of water
poured the openings and the Lusitania
listedr Boats which were already swung
out on the davits were dropped over
board and were speedily filled with passengers who had been appalled by the disaster. A wireless call for help was sent
out. and immediately rescue boats of all
kinds were sent out from neighboring
points along the coasts and Queenstown.
But within fifteen minutes as one survivor estimated' and certainly within half
an hour the Lusitania had disappeared.
The Victoria passengers on board the
Lusitania were as follows: James Dunsmuir, son of the Hon. Jas. Dunsmuir,
Hately Park; Mr.and Mrs. Thomas K.
Kurpin, Mr. and Mrs, Cyril WickinRS
Smith and infant; B. G. Wickings Smith;
Cecil H. Weir; Robert W. Whaley, Mr.
and Mrs. George E. Stokes and Master
W. Stokes; Miss K. Barber, Cunningham
Smith, Miss Charlotte Marshall, Mrs. B.
Haddow and G. R. Blackburn.
London May 8th.
A statement issued by the British admiralty says the total number of survivors of the Lusitania is 658 out of a total
of 2066 passengers and crew.

SATURDAY, MAY  8th, 1915.
Mother's Day.
To THOSE who c&n read
"the handwriting on the wall, "
it looks as if the long-neglected
mothers of this country are
going to receive a little more attention. We have long erected
puplic monuments to our great
men but have seldom dropped
even a flower on the resting
place of the noble mothers who
raised the gifted men and to
whom most of the greatness belongs. In many states dependent mothers with children are
given a pension, and the inauguration of "Mother's Day" has
set all to thinking more of the
debt we owe the noble mothers
of our land.
On May 11, 1912, Mother's
Day was celebrated all over the
United States and will hereafter
be celebrated with as much
regularity as Christmas. To Miss
Anna Jarvis.of Philadelphia, Pa.,
they are indebted for this day,
which is set apart for the purpose of at least thinking of our
mothers.
A reporter recently called on
Miss Jarvis to get a history of
her life and what she said will
certainly interest the readers of
this department.
"Please," she urged, smiling
an apology, " I had so much
rather talk about mother's day
than about myself." The flush
of innate shyness rose to the
lines of her pale hair and her trust
ing eyes turned involuntarily to
a portrait above the hearth.
"That is my mother," said
Miss Jarvis, simply. "She was
mother to eleven children. I was
her baby. It is seven years since
we lost her. This was her sitting
room; these are her things."
The big home-like room flooded
with sunlight was crowded with
womanly possessions, deep chairs
by the open fire, luxuriant plants
in the generous window garden,
a huge Canton jar of potpourri,
low tables and baskets for unending needlework, and books, books,
books everywhere.
"People think that the loss of
a mother falls heaviest on the
children." said Miss Jarvis,
gently, "but, really, it is only
the grown daughters and sons
who understand.
"This Mother's Day movement
-making the second Sunday in
May sacred to mothers—has nothing behind it but my belief of
men and women as sons and
daughters. Eventually it will
create an all-nations brotherhood
that will stand for the protection
of the mother and the children—
the unmarried mother, the mother
who works, the mother who is
widowed—for, indeed, the preservation of the home itself!"
"The white carnation was
chosen as the memory flower because it grows everywhere and its
whiteness symbolizes the purity
of a mother's love, its endurance,
her fidelity. Through all ages
and all centuries the world is indebted to motherhood, for mother
love is as old as the world and as
young as the youngest born. It is
the greatest force for good on
this earth. . Even a bad father's
influence is so discounted by a
good mother's that nine times in
ten, the children come out all
right. And most people had good
mothers—indeed, most of us had
the best mother that ever lived.
"I contend that Mother's Day
should be the greatest of all holidays, because you cannot perpetuate anything without mothers."
"Our Association should have
the  largest membership in the
world, for everyone is a son or
daughter of the best mother who
ever lived, the mother of your
heart.

CLERKS IN KHAKI
Giving an Insight Into "Office" Work
on the Battlefield
Inside a long, low building, at rows
of tables, sit the clerical staff attached to the British Expeditionary Force
at headquarters. The clerks are sol
diers, clad in khaki, ready, it need be,
to exchange at a moment's notice the
pen or typewriter for the sword or
rifle.
The tables are littered with ledgers,
report forms, and an immense mass
of correspondence. At one table a
bronzed warrior is entering up particulars ln a book from a pile of queer,
dirty-looking pieces of paper. These
pieces of paper are the counterfoils
of orders given by commissariat officers to shopkeepers and others for
goods obtained from them by offic:rs,
all of which liabilities must be discharged in solid gold. Thousands of
dollars are paid in this way every
week, and fifty soldier clerks alona
are engaged at headquarters ln look
ing after the "accounts" department.
At another table may be seen half
a dozen soldiers engaged in filing reports dealing with recommended pro
motions, including those from the
ranks; near them are men performing
the saddest task of all—the compiling
of the lists of killed, wounded and
missing.
At a table apart from the othei*
sit the officers who draft the reports
which form the material of General
French's despatches. These reports
contain all the details of the movements with whicb the chief's despatch
is to deal, and the names of those
recommended for mention ln it by
various officers commanding in tbe
field.
Not long since the officer whose
particular duty it then was to make
out the final list of these names given
to him by various generals, struck
one name out, It was his own, and
he did not wish to put it on the list
of honors himself. Wben remonstrated with by another officer for
striking his own name out, be said:
"Oh, I may get another chance of
being in it when someone else is doing this Job!"
He did.

GRAIN PRODUCTION
A press bulletin issued by the
Census and Statistics Office, gives
the results of the usual annual
inquiry as to the stocks of grain
and other crops remaining in the
hands of farmers on March 31st,
and the proportion of the crops
harvested in the previous year
which turned out to be of merchantable quality. The returns received from crop-reporting correspondents show that of the
total estimated yield of wheat in
1914, 12 1-2 percenter 20,247,000
bushels remained in farmers,
hands at the end of March. At the
rate of 1 3-4 bushel per acre this
quantity should allow of the sowing this spring of about 11,570,000
acres, or 1,522,000 acres more
than were sown in the spring of
1914, independently of quantites
of wheat stored in elevators which
may be returned to farmers for
seeding purposes. The quantity
of wheat remaining this year in
the hands of farmers, is however smaller than in any previous year on record, the light
crop and the high price being
together responsible for this result. In 1914 the quantiity of
wheat estimated to be in farmers'
hands at March 31st was 38,353,
000 bushels, or 16.5 per cent of
the large harvest of 1913; in 1913
at March 31st the proportion
was 22 per cent or 50,234,000
bushels and at Merch 31st 1912
it was 27 per cent or 62.188,000
bushels.

PRESENTATION
On Friday evening, the 30th
April, a considerable gathering
of the business men and townspeople of Cumberland was held
in the commodious parlour of the
Union Hotel, for the purpose of
bidding farewell to W. T. White,
Manager of The Canadian Bank
of Corftmerce, who has been appointed manager at Virden, Manitoba, and who is leaving in a few
days to assume his new duties.
Among those present were:—
J. R. Lockard, General Superintendent
of the Canadian Collierie (Dunsmuir)Ltd.
. G. W. Clinton, Superintendent of the
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd.
Dr. Geo. K. MacNaughlon.
W. E. Lawrence, Bevan.
J. H. MacMillan.
Dr. E. R. Hicks.
Thos. A. Spruston.
Wesley Willard.
Thos. E. Bate.
Thos. Bickle.
P. S. Fagan.
D. R. MacDonald.
T. B. O'Connell.
C. H. Tarbell.
J. N. McLeod.
E. W. Bickle.
In appropriate terms Mr. W. E.
Lawrence, expressed the general
regret felt in this neighborhood
at Mr. White's approaching departure, and on behalf of the
citizens presented him with a
beautiful gold watch, chain and
locket, coupling with the presentation the name of Mrs. White,
for whom a handsome heavy cut
glass water set was provided.
Mr. White, on behalf of Mrs.
White and himself, expressed
deep appreciation at these substantial tokens of esteem and
took the occasion to exhort the
members of the Board of Trade
who wei e present, to work diligently for the welfare of Cumberland, pointing out the great
importance to this community of
securing the placing of a tariff on
fuel oil.
After those present had voiced
their appreciation of Mr. White's
services for the upbuilding and
development of the town, especially in connection with the Board
of Trade, of which he is Vice-
President and Acting President.
An informal discussion ensued
in regard to the burning question
of fuel oil. There was absolute
unanimity as to the prime necessity for securing a substantial
tariff and many valuable suggestions were contributed by those
present in regard to the means
by which the desired end might
best be achieved. Several of
those present who were not members of the Board of Trade announced their intention of seeking membership at the next meeting of the Board, and Mr. White
will leave Cumberland with the
assurance that this important
organization, of which he was
one of the original promoters and
always an enthusiastic member,
is embarking upon its fourth year
with a larger membership and
more determination than ever.
The meeting dispersed with the
singing of "Auld Lang Syne." ■
