Going Out of Business
The New Home Bakery, of
Dunsmuir Avenue, will close up
their business within the next
few days after payday. The
hak:oven, cooking utensils and
delivery wagon only has been
sold to Thomas Cessford, who
will remove the oven to the Star
Cafe. The business known for
the past three or four years as
the New Home Bakery will close
its doors and remain closed for
some time. Mr. J. H. Halliday
is at present undecided as to his
future movements. He may leave
Cumberland and seek employment elsewhere or remain and
await developments and open the
bakery again in the future when
thc population of the city increases and the coal industry
prospers, with an additional one
cent per gallon of an import duty
on fuel oil, which , the Federal
authorities may grant when they
see our business houses closing
their doors for the want of the
necessary protection to our main
industry that supports British
Columbia, and especially Vancouver Island. Employees of the
coal industry are crying out for
an increase of wages on account
of the high cost of living. Without the protection the cost of
living will go up and the wages
of coal miners will remain the
same,  and business houses  thr
oughoutthe coal mining centre
of British Columbia will continue
to close their doors, The remedy
for the situation remains in the
hands of the Federal authorities.
By protecting our home industry
Cumberland with other coal min-
inir centres will prosper.

Ottawa, Jan. 10.—Sir Thomas
White, Ministei of Finance, announced today the first step in
connection with his campaign
for greater national saving and
the larger participation of the
general public in financing Canada's war expenditure and furnishing Imperial credits for the
purchase of munitions in Canada.
An issue of war saving certificates maturing in three years in
denominations of $25, $50 and
$100 will be created. They will
be obtainable on application to
any bank or postal money order
office in the Dominion. The prices are $21.50, $43 and $86 respectively; that is to say, for
every $21.50 lent now to the government $25 will be returned at
the end of three years. The
discount of $3.50 constitutes a
most attractive interest return.
Provision is made whereby the cer
tificates may be surrendered at
any time duringthe first 12months
at their purchase price; after 12
months, but within 24 months, at
$22.25; and after 24 months,, but
within 36 months, at $23.25, for
every $21.50 paid. This means
that the longer the certificates
are held the higher the rate of
interest that will be obtained.
The plan will give the general
public the opportunity of contributing by their savings to the winning of the war, and at the same
time encourage and promote individual thrift and economy throughout the Dominion. Such a
result would be, in the opinion of
the Minister, of incalculable national benefit, both for the present and future, and would go far
to avoid the consequences of
temporary depression which
might result through dislocation
of business after the war. The
new certificates will provide a
strong incentive to thrift and economy, in order that money may
be saved for their pu-chase. The
kind of thrift for which the Minister appeals is that which results
in the saving of money for the
purchase of these securities. It
is pointed out that under facilities afforded by the banks, post-
office savings bank branches and
other financial depositories, sums
of one dollar and upward are received on deposit.
The Minister acknowledges the
assistance which has been given
him by Messrs. C. A. Bogart,
general manager of the Dominion
Bank; H. F. Jones, assistant general manager of the Canadian
Bank of Commerce; and J. P.
Ball, general manager of the
Bank of Hamilton, in working
out the details of the plan.
A campaign of advertising in
connection with the issue of war
saving certificates will be commenced next week.

The City Council
Last Tuesday evening the
young people of Union Bay took
possession of the ' "Bachelors'
Rest" on the beach in response
to a wedding surprise party called on behalf of one of its popular
inmates. After the ceremony
was performed in true orthodox
fashion, supper was served with
speeches in order. In the meantime however, the groom's legal
adviser secured Sam's release
due to a bogus seal on the license,
non-regulation size of wedding
ring and the fact that the officiating clergyman performed the
rites from "Dr. Chase's Family
Doctor" and the chants sung
from the Koran.
Last year's council held their
final session in the Council Chambers on Monday evening. Present his Worship, Mayor Parnham
Aldermen Macdonald, Bate and
Banks. The minutes were read
and adopted as usual.
A communication was received
from the mayoi and council of
Nanaimo enclosing a copy of
resolution passed by the Nanaimo
council with reference to the high
costof living, requesting the government to investigate the cost
of producing canned goods, sugar,
flour and so forth and that action
be taken to regulate the exportation of food stuffs and protect
home demands. This was endorsed bv the city council and
the city clerk instructed to notify H. S. Clements M. P., and the
Minister of Trade and Commerce
for the Dominion.
The following report was received and filed from Dr. E. R.
Hicks, medical health officer.
Following the epidemic of
measles which was so widespread
during the first six months of
the year, the city enjoyed an immunity from any contagious or
infectious disease. This did not
last long, for the long, dry spell
through which the city passed
during the early autumn ushered
in an epidemic of Tonsilitis,
along with a larger number of
cases of pneumonia than is usual
for that period of the year. This
condition no doubt was due to
the fact that at that time the air
was surcharged with particles of
dust laden with germs. Had the
city been in the possession of
proper appliances for watering
the streets which could have been
used during that time no doubt
it would have prevented or at
least reduced the number of respiratory diseases which occurred
at that time.
Shortly after this a case of dip-
theria occurred in Camp, which
case was followed in about three
weeks by another case in the city.
Since then two other cases have
appeared, making a total of 4, 3
of which have occurred within
the city. Three cases of dipther-
ia have been treated in the Isolation Hospital, one from camp
and two from the city. The other case is being treated in the
city under quarantine. The epidemic of Diphtheria is a mild
one, none of the cases being serious. If the Board of Health
would impress upon the citizens
the necessity of reporting to
their family physician any case
of sore throat at the earliest pos- j
sible moment, it would be a great
aid in helping to stamp out the
disease.
One case of Erysipelas occurred
in the City during the last six
months.
Measles has again made its appearance in the district, there
being one case at Union Bay.
In a short time I hope to be
able to give a report on an examination of the City's milk supply.
Yours obediently,
„    E. R. Hicks, M. D.
Medical Health Officer.
The following accounts were
referred to the Finance committee for payment:
C. H. Tarbell & Son, .75c;
Mussatto & Co., $39; A. H.
Peacey $16.80.   Total $46.55.
The auditor's report was accepted and ordered to be printed.
William McLellan, account for
nursing and known as the Palmer bill, was again introduced
and laid over for the 1917 council and the presence of Dr. Geo.
K. MacNaughton.
Aid. Bate moved and Aid.
Banks seconded that a hearty
vote of thanks be tendered Mayor Parnham for the fair and courteous manner in which he had
conducted the business of the
council during the past year.
Mayor Parnham thanked the
council in a few well chosen remarks for their appreciation of
his services and hoped that his
successor in office would have
such an agreeable board of aldermen during the year 1917. The
retiring council then adjourned.
Mayor-elect Bate and Aldermen-
elect Macdonald, Carey and
Brown were members of the 1916
council, and will be able to carry
on the good work of 1916 with assistance of Aldermen-elect James
Brown, Bannerman and Milligan.
With a wide awake council it is
possible to improve on condition
during the year 1917.

SATURDAY, JANUAKY 13th, 1917
The Canadian Bank of Commerce and Export Trade.
That the Canadian Bank of
Commerce has acquired an interest in the British-Italian Corpo-
ration, is the statement made to
the Monetary Times this week
by Mr. John Aird, general manager of this enterprising bank.
An agreement was signed in
London in March last between
the London County and Westminster Bank, Limited, on one
side as representing a British financial group, and the Credito
Italiano on the other side as rep-'
resenting an Italian financial
group, for the constitution of a
British company, to be called the
British Italian Corporation, with
an authorized capital of 1,000,000
pounds, and the constitution also
ol an Italian company under the
style of the Compagnio Italo-
Britannica, with a capital of 10,-
000,000 lire, The object of the
two companies is the development of the economic relations
between Great Britain and Italy
and the promotion of undertak
ings in the commercial and in
dustrial field in Italy. The com
panies will work in close associa
tion. They will carry on the
kind of financial business conducted by continental bank
and more especially by the banks
of Germany, for the purpose of
fostering trade and assisting
manufacturers. The organization marks a new departure of
great importance and the participation of The Canadian Bank of
Commerce in the undertaking is
the welding of a financial link
which ultimately will be of considerable benefit to Canadian
trade and commerce.
Through this Anglo-Italian
bank, funds needed ly British
and Canadian manufacturers to
develop their business with Italy
will be provided. When a manufacturer, for example, obtains a
contract for electrical or other
woi ks, the new companies will
provide funds during development, and subsequently will obtain repayment for advances by
placing issues of bonds or stocks
wilh the British investing public
so that while the capital of the
corporation is confined to 1,000,-
'K'O pounds the funds that the
corporation wiil probably be able
to command will be practically
unlimited. Not only will the capital be turned over continuously
but tiie corporation will enjoy
high credit, and therefore be able
lo secure substantial banking
funds, without risks to bankers,
of the Anglo-Italian enterprise.
Air. Aird also thought the British
government were working along
riglit lines ir, regard to the proposed establishment of a British
trade bank as recommended by a
special committee under the
chairmanship of Lord Farringdon. Ibis bank will have for its
object the development of British trade throughout the world
and undoubtedly il will have Ca-
nadian connections,
antl beyond this, it will enjoy the
goodwill of the British investing
public, which will gladly provide   Italy with theeapital she
needs for her development upon
good security and at reasonable
rates of interest.
Behind the two corporations
stand the British and Italial governments. Exactly how far government credit will be at the service of the new institution has
not been disclosed. The new corporations may need only the
friendly offices of the governments, but if necessary the two
governments will probably give
more tangible assistance to the
new corporations than merely cooperation. Whatever may be the
attitude of the governments,
however, the fact remains that
these powerful British, Italian
and Canadian banks are co-operating in order to assist British
and Canadian traders to obtain'
and to carry out contracts in Italy,
and to enable Italy to obtain capital.
Interviewed in The Monetary
Times Mr. John Aird, general
manager of the Canadian Bank
of Commerce, said: —
"The Canadian interests of this
business will be intrusted for
their development to our bank,
This matter was fully investigated during my visit to England
last summer and it was decided
that we would take care of the
business on this side. Canadian
Italian trade has largely gone
through foreign channels in the
past, and its financing has been
transacted through foreign banks
Canada has not received all the
benefit it should have done and
Canadian financilal institutions
have received none of the benefits. The new arrangement seeks
to extend trade between the two
countries thiough Canadian
channels in every way, and its
financing will be transacted through a Canadian bank."
"Is there a possibility of your
bank becoming interested in the
proposed British-Russian Corporal ion of a similar nature?" Mr.
Aird was asked. "We thoroughly approve of anything of that
character," he replied; intimating also that the bank might become interested in other international financial corporations to
encourage trade,  as in the case

ARMY'S NEW COOKS       (
Ono thousand five hundred soldiers
are always learning cooking at the
London County Council schools. They
aro divided into bodies of 100, each
man having to live on the War Office
allowance of 43 cents a day, a feature
of the training being that It they cannot eat the meals they prepare they
must ko without. Tlie training is based
on cookery books issued hy the War
[ilflrp, which show liow one can make
a dinner out of next to nothing. The
military culinary manual tells how
mushrooms and marigold llowers, ol'-.
ten found rrowini. wild, give an excellent flavor to stow or soup, while
n.'tlles and sweet docks are excellent
vegetables in tlie spring. Stew for
about live minutes nnd serve—a good
substitute for ollie.' vegetables in soup.
The young lcf of the mangel-wurzel
Is also" excellent, and the War Office
declares that wild sorrel, added to pea
uoup, makes a pleasing change. Tho
men are not only taught many economy tricks, but how to cook rapidly
and easily. Thoy are shown when in
a hurry how cooking can be dono ln
mess tins bo arranged that half a
d.,..<-ii or so can be simultaneously
heated by a wood lire. Eight or ten
men in each company are taught how
to cut up meat and make Held kit-
chehs, tiie latter being quite elaborate
contrivances, when the camp is per-
manent. There i-v various slyles of
cookery trenches, the h^st knowa being the Aldarshot gridiron kitchen,
which is dug deep into the ground and
comprises nine trendies 12 feet long.

JEWS IN HIGH PLACES
Play
Leading    Roles  in   War-
Also   in  All   Armies
■Many
Israel Zangwill, historian of the Jewish race, estimates that no fewer than
ten millions are engaged in the war.
Only three and a half millions Jews,
he declares, have escaped the war.
There are 350,000 Jews fighting iu the
Hussian army; 250,000 under tho tricolor of France; 170,000 flghtinr for
Austria; 50,000 in the German army,
and 20,000 fighting under the British
flag. Every where the Jew is loyal
to the flag under which he lives, even
when that flag symbolizes tyranny,
oppression antl denial of civil rights.
One-lifth of all tho French Zouaves
from Morocco and Tripoli, now fighting in Flanders, hold the same religious service und celehra'.o the same
holy days as the majority of the Czar'i
gn?at Polish army.
Under which flag in this war are
the mighty among the Jews? Under
ull flags.
The head of the British Hospital
Fund Committee was Lord Rothschild,
a Jew. The head of the British Finance Commission is Baron Heading,
the Lord Chief Justice of England,
horn Isaacs, a Jew. Tho Kaiser has
put the management of the entire
railway system of Germany and Austria under tlie supreme control of Herr
Bullin, creator of the great German
merchant murine, who is a Jew. In
France the Grand Officer of the Legion of Honor, General Ileymann, who
hus been put In command of a French
army corps, is a Jew. Iu Turkey, the
Supreme Mililury Commander, Euver
Boy, who received the order Pour La
Merite from tho Kaiser for defending
the Dardanelles, is a Jew. In Italy,
the Foreign Minister, Baron Sonnino,
is a Jew. The Jews are a great race
without a country, a ruling race wi*'.-
out a seat of government, but wherever an enthroned monarch sits you
find close beside him or her, as a
chosen, sagacious, loyal counsellor,
some Jew who rules by divine right
of intellect.
Regimental Honors
The reference ir the King's speech
to the Welsh Guards to the "honors"
which will be inscribed on their cclors
reminds ono that the regiment with
the highest number of these distinctions bas no colors upon whic, to display them. This is the King's Royal
Rifle Corps, which, like all the other
rifle regiments, lips no flag. Upon
the Maltese Cross worn by its gallant
members appear no fewer than thirty-
nine names of engagements ii. which
the unit has gained fame.
The Rifle Brigade possesses thirty-
two "honors," representing some sixty
occasions in whlcb the regiment has
been engaged, while the Gloucester-
shires own the most crowded flag,
their "honors" numbering thirty-three,
apart from tiie privilege of showing
the Spiiinx on their caps for heroism
at Alexandria. The Highland Light
Infantry come next with thirty "Uoa-
Ort."
