Obituary
Died at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Thomas Graham, on Friday,
Feb. 15th, Janet Telfer Eade, a
native of Pennslyvania and a
widow of the late William Eade
of Sandcoulee, Montana. The
deceased lady died of heart failure and was 65 years of age.
From the time of her husband's
death 11 years ago, she has been
a close friend and companion of
Mrs. Thomas Graham in fact life
companions having spent their
early days together, and the fam'
ily of Mr. and Mrs. Graham
treated the elderly lady as a
grandmother. She ran the journey of her life. It is a path
marked well with kindness and
cheer, flowers not thorns, sunshine, not shadow, did she
scatter everywhere. There will
be a vacant chair and she will be
missed in the Graham home.
The body is being embalmed
at Bank's undertaking parlors
in preparation for shipment on
Sunday morning to Great Falls,
Montana, where the remains
will be interred along side that
of her husband,
Thomas Graham, the general
superintendent, will leave with
the deceased tomorrow morning
for the place of interment.

REGULAR MEETING
OF GITY COUNCIL
The city council held their
regular meeting on Tuesday
evening with His Worship
Mayor Harrison in the chair and
a full board of aldermen present
The minutes of the previous
meeting were read and adopted.
A telegram was received from
the secretary of the Central Iron
Committee, Victoria, with reference to establishing a steel plant
on Vancouver Island, which read
as follows:
Victoria, B. C, February 12th
1918, City Clerk Cumberland:

strongly advised Central Iron
Committee send deputation Ottawa during Paiemer's stay there,
Estimated cost for these delegates one thousand dollars. Wire

The Mayor stated that Courtenay and Union Bay had decided to
join with Cumberland in sending
a delegate and suggested H. S.
Fleming, vice-president of the
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir),
Limited. After some discussion
the council requested the mayor
to send Mr. Fleming of New
York a night lettergram soliciting his services as a delegate to
a conference to be held at Ottawa in connection with a steel industry on Vancouver Island.
The following communication
was received from H. S. Cle
ments, M. P., in reply to a
night lettergram sent some time
ago in connection with the closing of the theatres three days
a week. The letter addressed to
the mayor reads as follows:
Ottawa, Jan. 29th—Your tele

SHIP TONNAGE IS
ILO ILO ITEMS.
Washington, Feb. 13.-Ship
tonnage sunk by submarines in
1917 was nearly three times as
great as the total of production
in the United States and Great
Britain that year.
This was disclosed today by
the announcement of Mr. An-
drvw Bonar Law, Chancellor of
the Exchequer, in the Biitish
House of Commons that Great
Britain produced only 1.163,475
tons of shipping last year. The
output in the United States was
901,223 tons, making a total com
bined tonnage of 2,064,697, while
sinkings by submarines last year
generally are reckoned at 6,000,-
000.
While figures on construction
in Japan, Italy, France and other nations in 1917 are not yet
available, officials here do not
believe their aggregate equalled
the total of the United States.
If that is the case, submarine
sinkings more than doubled all
new tonnage produced.
Both American and British officials expect a very different
story in 1918, however. The
United States and Great Britain
are speeding up their shipping
programmes, and naval officials
in both countries have freely predicted that the submarine will be
curbed this summer.
Secretary Daniels believes that
effectual results will be obtained
in tbe early Summer. Admiral
Sir .Tohn R. Jellicoe. former
Chief of the British Naval Staff,
recently predicted that by August it could be said that the "submarine menace is killed."
The output of ship tonnage in
the United States in 1918 has
been variously estimated at from
2,600,000 tons to 4,000,000 tons,
with Shipping Board officials
confident that at 3,500,000 tons
will be completed.
No estimate of Great Britain's
output has been received, but
that country is expected to materially increase its 1917 figures.
Japan's operations just now
are hampered by lack of steel,
but this handicap is expected
soon to be overcome, and that
country also is expected to in
crease its output this year.
Other countries are building
few ships.
One of the pictures advertised
to be shown this week, Geo. B,
Cohan, in "Seven Keys to Bald
pate." evidently was delayed in
the East, as it did not arrive. It
occasionally happens that the
films advertised cannot be shown
on account of such shipping delays, but, as was the case this
week, the film companies endeavor to replace them with something equally good.
Next week's shows will be:
^Monday, Franklyn Farnum in
"Anything Once," a Bluebird,
and the Red Ace, No. 8..
Tuesday night there will be a
long show, Billy Burke in a Par-
amount-Artcraft feature film,
"The Mysterious Miss Terry,"
one of the celebrated two-reel
Mack Sennett comedies, and the
Red Ace once  between  shows,
Thursday's show will be Marguerite Clarke in what is acknowledged to be one of her very
best productions, "The Amazons. This film will be shown
two days, and will not be missed
by anyone who likes the best in
films.
SPECIAL MEETING
A special meeting of the city
council was held in the council
chambers on Wednesday evening. His Worship Mayor Harrison, presiding; Aldermen Banks,
Braes, Carey, Furbow and Tarbell present.
The money by-law to authoi ize
the city to borrow from the Royal Bank of Canada the sum of
$2500.00 at 8 per cent interest,
passed through its final stages
and was adopted as read.
The Mayor reported having received a telegram from H. S.
Fleming, of New York, vice-
president of the Canadian Collieries Dunsmuir Ltd., stating
that he would be pleased to act
as the representative of Cumberland, Courtenay and Union Bay
at the conference to be held at
Ottawa in the near future to
consider ways and means with a
view to establishing a steel industry on this coast. At the request of the council His Worship
the Mayor kindly consented to
draw the necessary information
and instructions to be forwarded
to Mr. Fleming to enable him fo
lay the wishes of this district
before the coming conference.
HOSPITAL BALL
The Ladies Auxiliary and the
Board of Directors of the Cumberland General Hospital will
give a Concert and Dance in the
Ilo Ilo Theatre on Wednesday
evening, March 6th. Several
committees are working dilligent-
ly with a view to assisting the
Hospital in raising funds to relieve their present financial condition, and it is expected that every adult in the City and vicinity
and outlying points will at least
buy a ticket to help this worthy
institution.
The program that has been
drafted for the concert and the
performers who have promised
to take part. It is expected that
the entertainment will be something new and of the best. The
price of tickets are as follows:
For Concert: Main floor, 50
cents; Gallery, 75 cents; Box
Seats, $1.00. Dance, Gents. $1.00
Ladies, 50 cents; Refreshments,
25 cents a plate. Ladies of the
Auxiliary have kindly consented
to visit the homes of the city and
district during the week in an
effort to sell as many tickets as
possible. The object is to raise
$1000.00.
For the benefit of the residents
of Bevan and Union Bay the
management of the Canadian
Collieries have generously donated a special train for the holders
of concert or dance tickets and
those holding such tickets, transportation will be free. Train
will return after the dance.
Buy a ticket and help the hospital. Further Particulars later.
Watch for large posters.
"FIVE ROSES" FLOUR.-Just
arrived a large shipment of the
popular Standard flour " Five

generally known, now being
milled. We are still selling "Five
Roses" at the former price $3.10
the 49tb sack. Let us have your
order and your requirements will

TECHNICAL TRAINING FOR
BOYS AND GIRLS
Probably   100,00')   boys   and
girls from 14 to 16 years of agi
annually leave school in Canada
to engage in some occupatioi
connected with manufacturing,
agriculture, mining or transpor-
tation. The present genera!
plan of education does not provide sufficiently for these young
people. They are stepping out
into the world to find their way,
with an almost entirely literary
education. The apprentice system in our industries is almost a
thing of the past, and the youth
in our factories and other business organizations is left to pick
up a smattering of his future occupation as best he may. Notwithstanding this, every manufacturer will agree that properly
trained help is the best -invesl-
pient. Germany, in the past few
years, has amply demonstrated
the value of technical training.
Canada has very important
natural resources requiring capacity tu develop them, What
are we doing to produce this capacity? How many of our farm-
cl..' children i now the qu ditie.s
oi soil and the proper fei t lizers
to use for best results? Mgr.
Choquette has told us of the
Belgian farmer's knowledge ol
his land an i his scientific use ol
it. Can we hope to meet him on
even terms? How many metal
workers know the composition
and working qualities ol their
raw materials. i)o our carpenters, textile workers, employees
in our ceramic and other industries know why they perform certain operations and why they secure the results th< j do.
We are not doing justice to the
rising generation. At the close
of the war, Canada will no doubt
see an influx of immigrants from
itit; European countries. Theii
syslei»of industrial training na.-
put them in a position lo tuTder-
stand the theoretic .i as well as
the practical side of their means
of livelihood, Can., i.i will have

the most i/nportanl positions to
our foreign-born residents, We
rffuj then realize, too late, that
we huve been unfair to our own
children. Industrial training
schools with iiittlil ciasses should
be a pari, and an important part,
of all educational work, and attendance of pupils, up to at least
18 years ol age, should be compulsory.
A medical board of review lias
been appointed lo work in ton-
junction with the enforcement
of the Military Service Act in the
province. The board consists of
Major !•'. P Patterson, presidi i t;
Captain W. B. McKechnie, surgeon, and Dr. W. D, Brydon-
Jack consulting physician.
The duty of the board, briefly,
I will be to act as a final court of,
appeal in medical matters where
the local tribunals have not been'
satisfied with decisions rendered,
or are in search of more information.
Where any doubt exists as to
fitness for military service of any
man on whose behalf exemption
is claimed on the ground of ill
health or infirmity, local or appeal tribunals before whom the
claim is made slnll if the man
has already been examined by a
military medical board, and may,
if he has not been so examined,
refer the case to the medical
court of review. The registrar
may at any time refer to this
board the case of any man who
has been exempted from military
service on the ground of ill-health
or infirmity. The decision of the
board shall, subject to tho appeal
to the central appeal judge, be
final, and the claim for exemption shall be granted or refused
by any local or appeal tribunal
in accordance therewith. On an
appeal to the Central Appeal
Judge he may direct any further
medical examination that may
seem expedient.

THE
FOOD    CONTROLLER
SAYS.
Hoarding is one of the new
words of the war. It means storing in excess of requirements,
especially of foods and fuel just
at present. Now storing and
laying up a prudent supply for
real needs is not a crime in peace
times: but the man or woman
who wilfully and coolly decides
today to store more food than he
or she would buy in ordinary
times is committing something
that has the moral effect of a
crime. He is also helping to
raise the price to himself of future supplies.
There is no cause for panic among the people of Canada. We
must expect to make some food
sacrifices and be willing to modify oar eating habits and even to
eat less in order that the soldiers
and our Allies may be fed. There
is a world shortage of foods because, so far as we in Canada
are, concerned, other people have
Pad to be withdrawn from farms
to light what is our joint fight.
Our obvious duty is to aid them
by sending them at least as much
food as they used to get before
they took up our common task.
"Hoarding" is the crime of selfishly taking care of one's own
skin to the detriment ofotheis,
either in the warring lands or at
home. Buying too much for immediate cellar-packing in Canada also imposes a burden on the
poorer ciasses in the Dominion.
ihe railway difficulties are especially great this winter: obstacles in distribution of foodstuffs
are adding to the shortage, Moreover, hoarding by people who
ack proper facilities for storing
may easily result in heavy waste.
For this reason especially, public
opinion should be aroused against j
the practice.
t is a thing that comes down
to a sense of right in the buyer.
If he or she knows what patriot-:
ism means, knows what others
have tu undergo only because!
they did not happen to live in
Canada, and in whose place Canadians might have been but for
the accident of geography, there
will be no hoarding. Public opinion aud public disapprobation
of hoarding may do much to discourage the practice, but nothing can really be effective unless
the moral sense of buyers of food
tells them plainly when they are
laying in a legitimate store or
grabbing at an opportunity of
plenty for the chief, reason that
they have enough money to get
it, It is no wonder that under
the stress of war tension the
British people found for the man
wbo attempted hoarding the expressive title of "Food Hog."
There has been .some "hoarding inJUanadaof sugar, flour and
perhaps other commodities. The
practice fortunately is of small
proportions and the effect of mea-

sures now under consideration
may result in the exposure of the
Canadian "Food Hogs." Hoarding is unnecessary and unpatriotic. The better elements in the
community will refrain from it
so far as their own households
are concerned and will use their
influence against it elsewhere.
Often people will buy large
quantities of these foods without
thinking of. the way in which
they may be depriving others.
Every patriotic Canadian will do
well to tesolve that he-will "play
the game" fairly with his neighbor, and with the poorer classes,
by purchasing food only in normal quantities while the present
emergency lasts, and by discouraging wherever he finds evidence
of it.

TECHNICAL TRAINING FOR'
BOYS AND GIRLS
Probably 100,000 boys and
girls from 14 to 16 years of age
annually leave school in Canada
to engage in some occupation
connected with manufacturing,
agriculture, mining or transportation. The present general
plan of education does not provide sufficiently for these young
people. They are stepping out
into the world to find their way,
with an almost entirely literary
education. The apprentice system in our industries is almost a
thing of the past, and the youth
in our factories and other business organizations is left to pick
up a smattering of his future occupation as best he may. Notwithstanding this, every manufacturer will agree that properly
trained help is the best -investment. Germany, in the past few
years, has amply demonstrated
tiie value of technical training,
Canada has very important
natural resources requiring capacity to dev lop Ihem. What
are we doing to produce this capacity? How many of our farmer: ' children know the qu tlities
of soil and thf proper ferl lizer^
to use for best results? Mgr,
Choquette has told us of the
Belgian farmer's knowledge of
his land an i his scientific use oi
it. Can we hope to meet him on
even terms? How many metal
workers kuow the composition
and working qualities ol their
raw materials. Do our carpenters, textile workers, employees
ir. our ceramic and other industries know why they perform certain operations and why they se-
cure the i esults thej do.
We are not doing justice to the
rising generation. At the close
of the war, Canada will no doubt
see an influx of immigrants from
the European countries. Their
syslei»of industrial training has
put them in a position to understand il.e theoretic .1 as well as
the practical side of their means
of livelihood. Can:, i.i will have

our foreign-born residents. We
may then realize, too late, that
we have been unfair to our own
children. Industrial training
schools with night ciasses slio'tikl
be a pari, and an important part,
of all educational work, ami attendance ol pupils, up tu at leasi
18 years oi age, should be compulsory,
A medical board of review has
been appointed to work in tun-
junction with the enforcement
of ihe Military Service Act in the
province. The board consists of
Major F. I'. Patterson, president;
Captain W. I!. McKechnie, surgeon, and Dr. W. D, Hrydoii-
Jack consulting physician.
'ihe duty of the board, briefly,
will be to act as a final court of,
appeal in medical matters where
the local tribunals have not been
satisfied with decisions rendered,
or are in search of more information.
Where any doubt exists as to
fitness for military service of any
man on whose behalf exemption
is claimed on the ground of ill
health or infirmity, local or appeal tribunals before whom the
claim is made shill if the man
has already been examined by a
military medical board, and may,
if he has not heen so examined,
refer the case to the medical
court of review. The registrar
may at any time refer to this
board the case of any man who
has been exempted from military
service on the ground of ill-health
o,' infirmity. The decision of the
hoard shall, subject to the appeal
to the central appeal judge, be
final, and the claim for exemption shall be granted or refused
by any ' local or appeal tribunal
in accordance therewith. On an
appeal to the Central Appeal
Judge he may direct any further
medical examination that may
seem expedient.

THE
FOOD    CONTROLLER
SAYS.
Hoarding is one of the new
words of the war. It means storing in excess of requirements,
especially of foods and fuel just
at present. Now storing and
laying up a prudent supply for
real needs is not a crime in peace
times: but the man or woman
who wilfully and coolly decides
today to store more food than he
or she would buy in ordinary
times is committing something
that has the moral effect of a
crime. He is also helping to
raise the price to himself of future supplies.
There is no cause for panic among the people of Canada. We
muse expect to make some food
sacrifices and be willing to modify our eating habits and even to
eat less in order that the soldiers
and our Allies may be fed. There
is a world shortage of foods because, so far as we in Canada
are, concerned, other people have
had to be withdrawn from farms
to light what is our joint fight.
Our obvious duty is to aid them
by sending them at least as much
food as they used to get before
they took up our common task.
"Hoarding" is the crime of selfishly taking care of one's own
skin to the detriment ofotheis,
either in the warring lands or at
home. Buying too much for im-j
mediate cellar-packing in Canada also imposes a burden on the:
poorer classes in the Dominion.!
llie railway difficulties are especially great this winter: obstacles in distribution of foodstuffs
are adding to the shortage. Moreover, hoarding by people who
lack proper facilities for storing
may easily result in heavy waste.
For this reason especially, public
opinion should be aroused against
the practice.
It is a thing that comes down :
to ,i sense of right in the buyer.
if he or she knows what patriotism means, knows what others!
have iti undergo only because
they did not happen to lice in
Canada, ami in whose place Canadians might have been but for
the accident of geography, there
will be no hoarding. Public opinion ami public disapprobation
of hoarding may do much to discourage the practice, but nothing ea'i really be effective unless
the moral sense of buyers of food
tells them plainly when they are
laying in a legitimate store or
grabbing at an opportunity of
plenty for the chief, reason that
they have enough money to get
it. It is no wonder that under
the stress of war tension the
British people found for the man
who attempted hoarding the expressive title of "Food Hog."
There has heen some "hoarding nJJanadaof sugar, flour and
perhaps other commodities. The
practice fortunately is of small
proportions and the effect of mea-

sttres now under consideration
may result in the exposure of the
Canadian "Food Hogs." Hoarding is unnecessary and unpatriotic. The better elements in the
community will refrain from it
so far as their own households
are concerned and will use their
influence against it elsewhere.
Often people will buy large
quantities of these foods without
thinking ot the way in which
they may be depriving others.
Every patriotic Canadian will do
well to resolve that he-will "play
the game" fairly with his neighbor, and with the poorer classes,
by purchasing food only in normal quantities while the present
emergency lasts, and by discouraging wherever he finds evidence
of it.
