CITY IN DARKNESS AT MIDNIGHT.
On Thursday evening the local
friends of W. H. Mordy, gave a
farewell dance in the Ilo Ilo Theatre. About twenty-two couple
attended and enjoyed themselves
immensely. Refreshments were
served by the ladies at midnight,
and the -party left for home at
two in the morning. Upon reaching the main street they found
the City in darkness, Fully unprepared for such an experience
it was necessary to strike matches to find their way home, some
falling through the sidewalk,
others going over the edge.
Some time ago we boasted of our
new lighting system, second to
none in the province for a town
of its size, and when installed it
was understood that the large
light on Dunsmuir Avenue would
be extinguished at a reasonable
hour in the evening, the remaining lights to burn until day break
and we were astonished to find
from those who attended the
dance that the (city goes into
darkness at midnight. What is
the use of spending a thousand
dollars on a new lighting system
and go home without a light.
HUGH GILLESPIE GOES
TO THE DRUM LUMMON
Following seven years' service
with the Clayburn Company, as
superintendent of the brick manufacturing company's mines
above Clayburn, and near Sumas
Lake, Mi. Hugh Gillespie is leaving to enter the service of the
Drum Lummon Copper people.
He has accepted a position as superintendent of the copper mines
located 100 miles south of Prince
Rupert and will be going there
next week to assume his new
duties. Mr. Gillespie, who is a
mining man of many years experience in Canada, the States
and the old country, was selected
by the Drum Lummon Company
from a large number of eligibles
because of his wide experience
and knowledge of British Columbia conditions. He is now on a
short (rip to Seattle.—Vancouver
World. Mr. Gillespie was a Fire
Boss in No. 6 Mine, Cumberland,
about 10 years ago.
'IHE BIRTH OF
A
,,
TRIUMPH OF THE SCREEN.
lt is probably too early in the
historv of moving picture photop-
raphy to assert positively that
any film is the "last word" in
photo-play production. It can
be safely said, however, that
"The Birth of a Nation" which
will be staged at the Ilo Ilo Theatre represents the highest accomplishment that the world
has yet seen visualized on the
screen. Mr. Griffith's production gives a splendid idea of the
many advantages that the pictures have over the "legitimate"
stage for presenting certain
types of stories. Where variety,
action and spectacular bigness
are necessary, the stage has always failed to be quite adequate,
but to the possibilities that lie
within the scope' of the pictured
drama, there is no limit. For
example, the battle scenes and
the assassination of Lincoln, as
shown in "The Birth of aNation",
might be photographs of actual
occurences, so realistic are they
in every detail. The production,
as everyone is aware, is based
upon Thomas Dixon's novel
"The Clansman", and those who
remember the story might expect, it shows a decided sympathy for the gallant and suffering
South, not enough, however, to
in any way distort the actual occurrences of those parlous times
in.which the action of the drama
taices place. The photo-play has
been universally pronounned a
marvellous achievement. It is
thrilling in the tale that it tells-
and there is no pause in the ex,
citing action. Cumberland theatre-goers are not often asked to
pay regular theatre prices for a
picture play, but those who witness the "Birth of aNation" will
doubtless agree that the management has not asked too much
for this triumph in its own form
of dramatic ait. Two days, commencing Sept 19. Special bargain prices, 25c. (children,) 50c,
75c, $1.00.

B IN POL'TICS
The Vancouver Sun of fuesday
says:-ihe resignation of His
Honor Judge W. W. B. Mclnnes,
senior judge of the Vancouver
county court, was yesterday sent
to Ottawa, the resignation to
take effect immediately. By afternoon the robes of office had
been put aside and his honor was
making his plans for a tour of
the Comox-Alberni federal constituency, in which he is to be
the Liberal candidate in the coming elections. He will leave foi
Vancouver Island on Thursday
and will go on stump throughout the constituency, with which
he is already familiar. The res
ignation creates the second vacancy on the county court bench
and leaves His Honor Judge
Grant to deal alone with the civil and criminal work.
At different times during his
occupancy of the county court
bench, there have been rumors
that Judge Mclnnes was about
to retire and reengage in politics.
At every election a report to that
effect found circulation and credence among that large section of
the public which regarded him
as brilliantly equipped for political life, with his great powers of
oratory and the splendid capacity
that he had displayed in important administrative posts such
as those of provincial secretary
at Victoria and commissioner of
the Yukon.
As senior county court judge
he was admiied by all members
of the bar for his even courtesy,
his patience, his common-sense
interpretations of the law, his
quick perception of the kernel of
the cases brought before him.
More especially as a criminal
judge was he held in regard.
During the eight years he has
been on the bench, all the criminal cases in the speedy trials
court have come before Judge
Mclnnes and the first offender,
however serious his offense,
could always be sure of leniency
and an opportunity to redeem
himself, -if real patience could
be discovered. But the thug
and the hold-up man, the seasoned criminal, could be equally
sure of exemplary treatment. Ht
weighed evidence carefully and
was a keen judge of character;
his judgments were brief but
pointed.

WHERE GOMPERS   STANDS.
Minneapolis, Sept 5.—Samuel
Gompers, president of the Am-
, erican Federation of Labor, late
today pledged the united support
of organized labor to the government in its prosecution of the
war, assailed peace propagan
disls. and denounced the futile
activities of those who would
split labor's ranks on the question of war. He attacked the
arguments of those who declare
the working masses want peace,
and challenged pro-German societies to step forth into the open
and match their disloyalty against
labor's loyalty."—PressDispatch.
We commend Mr. Gomper's
remarks to the attention of certain so-called labor leaders in
Canada who have been talking
glibly about a general strike
when conpulsory military service is enforced. The American
Federation of Labor is probably
the most powerful organization
of it's kind in the world. It is
the parent body of most of the
Canadian unions. It furnishes
strike pay when labor trouble de-
velopes. It is hardly necessary
to say that it would not countenance for a minute a general
strike on the part of any of its
branches in this country as a protest against conscription. It
stood solidly behind the Washington Government in the adoption of the selective draft law,
and through Mr. Gompers again
has pledged it's united support
of all measures necessary to the
winning of the war. A general
strike in Canada would be derogatory to the interests of Canada's
allies, who include the United
Slates, and, therefore, would be
relented by the American Federation of Labor. However, there
will be no general strike in Canada in any case. Labor, organized and unorganized, is not correctly represented by the few
men who are talking themselves
into the newspaper headlines
these days.—Victoria Times.
3. The Military Service Act
of 1917, introduced by Sir Robert
Borden, is much more limited in
its sccpe than the Act passed by
Sir Wilfrid Laurier in 1904.
The 1917 Act proposes:
(a) To raise ojjly 100,000 men
—no more; and
(b) To call up first the unmarried men between the ages
of 20 and 34. Since it is
estimated that there are in
Canada today at least 400,
000 unmarried men in this
class, there is little likelihood that any of the other
classes will be unrolled
under the new Act.
There are generous exemptions
in the 1917 Act which did hot exist under the old Act, among
others;
(a) For men engaged in essential industries. No doubt under
this clause the vast majority of
farmers, fishermen, transportation and industrial employees
may claim and will secure exemption.
(b) Men under exceptional
business obligations and men who
have dependents likely to suffer
special hardship wil! also receive
consideration.
(c) The clergy,including members of every recognised order of
an exclusively religious character,
are entirely exempt from the
operation of the Act.
(d) So are several other less
numerous classes.
Local and Appeal Tribunals to
determine exemptions are to be
created throughout the country.
They will be presided over by men
of known fairness and impartiality, who reside in the district and
are acquainted with local condi-,
tions. There will be no partisanship in their appointment.
The administration of the Act
will be under the supervision of
the Minister of Justice.
It is expected that young unmarried men, not essential to industry and not having exceptional
responsibilities of any kind will
be the only ones called to the
colours under the present Military
Service Act. It is admitted that
there are many young men in this
class who can be spared without
seriously affecting the production
of the country. If more men are
needed today at the front—and
they are—should not such men
go, and could any fairer method
be devised to secure them?
THK     MILITARY     SERVICE
ACT OF 1917.
What It Proposes To Do.
Much Less Drastic than the
Militia Act of 1901 Passed by
Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
1, The Military Service Aet
of 1917 introduces no new principle. Fur fifty years or more
the law of the land has recognized the principle of Compulsory
Military Service.
2. The Militia Act of 1904,
passed thirteen years ago by Sir
Wilfrid Laurier.
(a.) Makes liable for compulsory military service EVERY
MAN between the ages of 18
and GO, and
(li.) The Canadian Militiaman so called up could be sent
"ON ACTIVE SERVICE ANYWHERE IN CANADA, AND
ALSO BEYOND CANADA, FOR
THK DEFENCE THEREOF, AT
ANY TIME WHEN IT APPEARS ADVISABLE SO TO
DO BY REASON OF EMERGENCY." Such are the exact
words of the old Act.
The Volks Zeitung attributes
all the alleged follies and wrong-
headedness of the United States
to the fact that English is the
official language" of Americans
all would be well and "kultur"
presently would dominate the
world. But the Americans are
so obtuse that actually they are
talking about suppressing alleged
newspapers which are printed in
the language of the Hun. What
can be done with such a dense
people as the Yankees except
blast them with a hymn of hate?

with dirt, improves your appearance, continue it. Remember a well-dressed man always
wants the best.
Also you must get yourshoes
cleaned; and don't throw vour
tan shoes away because they
are old—have them dyed.

WHAT A LIVE AGRICULTURAL LEADER COULD
DO NOW.
Use the discharged munition
workers in operating the tractors
already in the cpuntry, many
standing idle.
Make every available engine
draw a gang of plows, preparing
for fall and spring crops.
Pay the wages to the men that
will induce hundreds to apply at
once. Run the tractors in dou- j
ble shifts, night and day, with
acetylene headlights.
Speed up the manufacture of
tractors and get deliveries faster.
Establish short course traction-1
eering schools at every experiment station,' college and country town. I
Carry the necessary phosphates
to the country points where fall
wheat is sown and finance them
as low as possible.
Plow the land as never before.
Farmers-are calling for this assistance.
Give a bounty, if necessary,
to cover labor costs of men breaking, or guarantee a price for 1918
wheat.
Walk into tho situation as a'
competent general with a big
proposition, if the need of food
is not a myth.   Do the thin?.
Sweep aside a great deal of
this official duplication, red tape
and cumbersome departmental
machinery.
God lias given us a soil unequalled anywhere, a climate and
natural advantages almost Utopian. Man is the iveak spot in
the link. Oh ye agricultural
| leaders of little faith, wherefore
doubt!
