in Cumberland.
A public meeting of women voters of
Cumberland convened by the local
Conservative Association, was held at
the committee rooms on Monday evening. A number of ladles attended the
meeting, and Mr. J. L. Coates, on behalf of the local association, welcomed
their presence as evidence of a desire
to take part In the forthcoming political battle.
Mr. Coates said that they desired the
help of the lady electors throughout
the campaign and such help would be
greatly appreciated both by their association and the kindred associations In
the constituency. Thore were manifold duties for the lady electors to perform, but be felt sure that when they
had done their share they would say
at the end of tbe campaign, as had
been done after former experiences,
that the work had been congenial and
fascinating.
Mr. H. G. McKinnon said that at a
meeting ot the men's associatiou on
the previous Wednesday, an executive

L. Coates, A. C. Lymn, Charles O'Brien,
Edward W. Bickle, Thos. Bannerman,
and four ladies to be elected at the
meeting of the Women's Branch.
It was decided at that meeting to
call upon the ladies to organize an
association to assist them in the campaign. They realized what a factor
the ladles are, not only In domestic
but also in the political sphere.
Mayor McDonald, called upon to say
a few words, said that at the men's
association that evening he had consented under pressure to be nominated
as their candidate for the Provincial
Parliament and he now asked thc
ladles for their assistance In his campaign. He felt that a great deal would
depend upon their assistance. A convention was to be held at Campbell
River on Friday, and they did not
know how many candidates would be
In the fleld. Two lady delegates would
be appointed at this meeting to represent Cumberland along with th men
at the convention at Campbell River.
Whoever got the nomination at Campbell River, one thing was clear, and
that was that their associations would
have to begin Immediately to work
very hard for their party, as he and

CUMBERLAND HUNTERS
GET 200-POUND BUCK
Took  Two  Days   to Pack the
Monster Out to Civilization.
Vanderbilt, Jr., has been talking to
some newspaper men down ln Washington, about the glories of Vancouver
Island and the game and fish that
abound there. He also told them
some wonderful yarns about mountain lions, etc. Mr. Vanderbilt has
nothing on two of our local boys.
Bill Gordon and Mickey DeCouer, who
went out shooting a few days ago and
had wonderful luck.
Amongst their bag was a 200 pound
five-pronged buck with a head on him
as big as a moose. It took Bill and
Mickey two days to pack the monster
home. The boys say that the Quartz
Creek country Is the best In thc
world.
Aid. Thomas Bannerman met with a
painful accident several days ago,
when his left hand was badly cut
while he was working ln the mines.
The injured member is doing nicely,
though lt will be some time before
Mr. Banuerrnan can resume work.

new schedules lor tlle train and boat services whereby lt will be possible, com
mencing Monday week for passengers from Cumberland to make connection
with the Princess Patricia on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, the train
leaving up-Island points an hour earlier than at present.
Apparently the dally train service during tbe winter months Is going to be
maintained, and the through service to and from Vancouver three days a week.
This will prove much more satisfactory to all concerned.

Nanaimo at 8 a.m., arriving Vancouver 10.15; will leave Vancouver at 3 p.m.,
arriving Nanaimo at 5.15 p.m. On Tuesdays, Thursdays sud Saturdays, the

OLIVER FAVORS
ABOLISHING ALL
NEAR-BEER BARS
Believes Girls and Boys Learn to
Drink There—Near Beer
Should Be Eliminated.
CRANBROOK, Nov. 3. — Premier
Oliver told an audience at Athlemerc
last night that he wus ln favor of the
abolition of near beer bars as soon as
Government Control was effected, as
bo believed they were the main
avenues through which boys and girls
acquired the habit of drinking. He
went so fnr as to say that near beer
should be deleted from the lint of
beverages extended to those who Indulged in liquor.
In drafting the new legislation, he
asserted, thc wishes of tlle people
would he followed. While he had
voted Prohibition personally, he saw
In tlie Moderation plan a desire ou the
part of the people to be accorded thc
use of liquor without being subjected
to a system that encouraged abuse.
Stewart Is Unanimous
Choice at Convention
At the Liberal Convention held at Courtenay yesterday, Hugh Stewart, the present member in the Provincial House, received the unanimous standing vote
of the large number of delegates present.*
• Hon. Wm. Sloan, Minister of Mines, was present and
delivered a splendid address to the assembled delegates.
Mayor McDonald Accepts Nomination
On Monday last a deputation consisting of ton of the most
influential and "representative Conservatives of Cumberland and
district, waited upon Mr. Charles Graham, District Superintendent
of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir), Limited, and asked him to
stand as a representative in th« interests of the Conservative
Party at the forthcoming election for the Comox Electoral District.
Mr. T. E. Bate, president of the Cumberland Conservative Association, was the chief spokesman during the interview. All the
members of the deputation expressed their desire that Mr. Chas.
Graham accept the nomination.
Mr. Graham, in his reply, stated that he appreciated the honor
that had been conferred on him, but he did not see his way clear
to accept the nomination, on account of the position which he
occupied at the Collieries. He thought it would be a difficult
matter for him to get the necessary leave of absence to attend to
sessional duties, in the event of his being selected as a candidate
for the district at the Campbell River Convention.
The deputation expressed considerable disappointment at Mr.
Graham's reply, as they had fully expected that he would accept
the nomination.
Later on in the day the deputation met again, but seeing that it
was impossible for Mr. Chas. Graham to allow his name to stand
for nomination, they decided to wait upon Mr. D. R. McDonald,
Mayor of Cumberland, and at a meeting in the Conservative Committee Rooms on Monday evening it was unanimously decided that
Mr. McDonald be asked to stand for nomination in the interests
of the Conservative party for the Comox Electoral District.
After some consideration, Mr. McDonald accepted the nomina-
tiqji.

Boys' Work Committee Presents Plan
Splendid Proposition Meets With
Disappointing Opposition—
Another Meeting Later
Although the meeting called for
Tuesday evening last In connection
with Boys' Work ln Cumberland was
well advertised, very few persons were
Interested enough to be present, only
an even dozen attending. However,
though the meeting lacked large numbers it had no lack ot interest.
Those present comprised Capt. J. C.
Brown (in the chair), Rev. W. Leversedge, Rev. Geo. Kinney, Rev. Jas.
Hood, Messrs. Chas. E. Burbrldge, C.
S. Wood, Colin Campbell, A. J. Four-
acre, B. H. Gowen, Hughes, Lockart
and C. B. McKinnon, secretary of the
Y.M.CA. Boys' Work In the Nanaimo
Division. Mr. T. Carey, secretary of
the committee appointed at the previous meeting, was unable to be present.
At a meeting held In the City Hail
on October 5, a committee of six waB
appointed to formulate an organization Bcheme, the gentlemen being
Capt. J. C. Brown (chairmanI, Mr. T.
Carey (secretary), Ur. MacNaughton,
Mr. C. S. Wood, Mr. A. McKinnon and
Rev. Leversedge.
After giving the mailer much consideration, the committee brought In
the following recommendation:
The I'nniiiiltlccN Proposal.
NAME.—That a Commute of those
Interested In Boys' Work he formed,
and that lt be known as The Boys'
Work Council of Cumberland.
AIM.—That the aim of such Council
should be to reach and help to clean
manhood and good citizenship every
boy In Cumberland.
METHOD.—That the methods to bo
followed should be:
1. To co-ordinate all existing endeavor ln Boys' Work In Cumberland
2. To foster and direct the formation
of further groups, under competent
leadership.
3. To enlist the sympathy and cooperation of local experts ln games,
physical training and educational boys*
work.
4. To secure as soon as possible the
services of an expert in boys' work, to
devote his whole time to work In this
city.
FINANCE.—In order to adequately
finance such plan your committee recommend :
1. That membership tickets at one
dollar per annum he sold to all In
sympathy with the proposed organisation (tickets to be Bold by existing
boys' organizations, who shall have
the privilege of retaining for their
club's uses twenty-five per cent, of the
proceeds of such sales.)
2. That the boys' groups be encouraged to present displays, entertainments, etc., for the benefit of the general council.
Plan Adopted by .Meeting.
The report was considered clause
by clause and finally adopted, with one
or two minor alterations.
From the discussion it developed
that the Boys' Work Council could
probably make some arrangement with
the Canadian Collieries and tlie committee in charge of the Athletic Hall
whereby the boys' classes could receive expert gymnasium instruction
from the physical director to be connected with the Athletic Hall.
The committee explained that Its object was to make an effort to pay off
the Inherited Y.M.CA. quota as Boon
as possible and then go ahead and gel
funds wilh which to llnimce a local
organization. An athletic Instructoi
to be employed on part time to start
with, and experts In games, educational
work, etc.. be enlisted so tlmt the boys
could have a complete all-around
training under competent leadership.
This would necessitate ihe y.mc.a
withdrawing lis secretary fiom the
local Held. The meeting was decidedly
of Ihe opinion lhat much better results could be accomplished under Ibis,
scheme than al present.
In'-hls on Y.U.C.A. Supt rib ion.
Rev. Hood at this stHge surprised
the meeting by Insisting that thc services of Mr. .McKinnon be retained ns
supervisor until March 3, tbe end o!
the fiscal year. It was explained to
Mr. Hood that thc committee's first
intention was to get the necessary
money to pay the amount alleged to be-
due the Y.M.CA. up to next March
Mr. Hood, however, could not be Induced to agrte to this proposition,
claiming Cumberland was morally
bound to have the services of Mr. McKinnon until March 3 anyway, even 11
the full amount owing to the Y.JM.C.A.
was paid in the meantime.
Mr. McKinnon   said   he  was   qultf
willing to withdraw at any time thc

The Cumberland United football
team visited Nanaimo on Sunday last
and engaged the .Nanaimo United in
an Upper Island League dxture. The
day was Ideal for soccer and a large
crowd turned out to boost the local
boys.
The Nanaimo lenm bad out their
strongest lenm of Ihe season, and were
determined to win. Cumberland were
without the services of Jock Clark,
who Is suffering from blood poisoning.
Bill Walker was back between the
slicks again.
The first half was very evenly contested, both tennis striving to pierce
the otber'B defence, but without success. Heck Smith was laid out early
ln the game. Hines putting him to
sleep. Heck was off for the remainder
ot the first half. He gamely took the
fleld In the second portion of the game,
but was a spectator.
Nanaimo was awarded a penalty.
Strang, In blocking the ball, fell and
his hand coming lu contact with the
sphere, the referee awarded a penalty.
Big Bill was on the job and saved his
charge.
The B. C. Champions had the pull in
tbe second half, and James got his
usual goal, from a cross from Harrison. The United bad shot their bolt
and play fell away toward the finish of
the game. Cumberland was content to
hold their lead and Nanaimo were seldom dangerous, Walker being called
upon only twice in the second half.
The better team won a hard-contested game, where hard knocks were
given and taken aplenty. The winners
are to be congratulated, playing with
practically ten men, Smith being off
for a considerable period, and Walker
tending goal with a broken linger.
They showed lots of grip and pep,

Mr. T. E. Bate, president of tho Cumberland Conservative Association, was the chief spokesman during the interview. All the
members of the deputation expressed their desire that Mr. Chas.
Graham accept the nomination.
Mr. Graham, in his reply, stated that he appreciated the honor
that had been conferred on him, but he did not see his way clear
to accept the nomination, on account of the position which he
occupied at the Collieries. He thought it would be a difficult
matter for him to get the necessary leave of absence to attend to
sessional duties, in the event of his being selected as a candidate
for the district at the Campbell River Convention.
The deputation expressed considerable disappointment at Mr.
Graham's reply, as they had fully expected that he would accept
the nomination.
Later on in the day the deputation met again, but seeing that it
was impossible for Mr. Chas. Graham to allow his name to stand
for nomination, they decided to wait upon Mr. D. R. McDonald,
Mayor of Cumberland, and at a meeting in the Conservative Committee Rooms on Monday evening it was unanimously decided that
Mr. McDonald be asked to stand for nomination in the interests
of the Conservative party for the Comox Electoral District.
After some consideration, Mr. McDonald accepted the nominating.
Boys' Work Committee Presents Plan
Splendid Proposition Meets With
Disappointing Opposition—
Another Meeting Later
Although the meeting called for
Tuesday evening last in connection
with Boys' Work In Cumberland was
well advertised, very few persons were
interested enough to be present, only
an even dozen attending. However,
though the meeting lacked large numbers lt had no lack of Interest.
Those present comprised Capt. J. C.
Brown (In the chair), Rev. W. Leversedge, Rev. Geo. Kinney, Rev. Jas.
Hood, Messrs. Chas. E. Burbridge, C.
S. Wood, Colin Campbell, A. J. Four-
acre. B. H. Gowen, Hughes, Lockart
and C. B. McKinnon, secretary of the
Y.M.CA. Boys' Work In the Nanaimo
DlvlBlon. Mr. T. Carey, secretary of
the committee appointed at the previous meeting, was unable to be present.
At a meeting held In the City Hall
on October 5, a committee of six was
appointed to formulate an organization scheme, the gentlemen being
Capt. J. C. Brown (chairman), Mr. T.
Carey (secretary!, Ur. MacNaughton.
Mr. C. S. Wood, Mr. A. McKinnon anil
Rev. Leversedge.
After giving the mailer much consideration, the committee brought ln
the following recommendation:
The Committee's I'rcposal.
NAME.—That a Commute of those
Interested In Boys' Work he formed,
nnd that It be known as The Boys'
Work Council of Cumberland.
AIM.—That the aim of such Council
Bhould be to reach and help to clean
manhood and good citizenship every
boy In Cumberland.
METHOD.—That the methods to bo
followed should be:
1. To co-ordinate all existing endeavor ln Boys' Work In Cumlierland
2. To foBter and direct the formation
of further groups, under competent
leadership.
3. To enlist the sympathy and cooperation of local experts in games,
physical training and educational boys'
work.
4. To secure as soon as possible the
services of an expert In boys' work, to
devote his whole time to work in this
city.
FINANCE.—In order to adequately
finance Biich plan your committee recommend :
1. That membership tickets at one
dollar per annum he sold tn all In
sympathy with the proposed organization (tickets to be sold by existing
boys' organizations, who shall have
the privilege of retaining for their
club's uses twenty-live per cent, of the
proceeds of such sales.)
2. That the boys' groups be encouraged to present displays, entertainments, etc., for the benefit of the general council.
Plan Adopted by Meeting.
The report was considered clause
by clause and finally adopted, with one
or two minor alterations.
From the discussion It developed
that the Boys' Work Council could
probably make some arrangement with
the Canadian Collieries and the committee in charge of the Athletic Hall
whereby the boys' classes could receive expert gymnasium Instruction
from the physical director to he connected with the Athletic Hall.
The committee explained that Its object was to make an effort to pay oft
the Inherited Y.M.CA. quota as soon
as possible and then go ahead and gel
funds with which to finance a local
organization. An athletic Instructot
to be employed on part time to start
wllb, and experts In games, educational
work, etc.. be enlisted so thai the hoys
could have a complete all-around
training under competent leadership.
This would necessitate the Y..MC.A
withdrawing Its secretary from the
local Held. The meeting was decidedly
nf thc opinion that much better results could he accomplished under this
scheme than at present.
Insists nil Y.M.I .A. Ntipi-riMiiii.
Rev. Hood at this stage surprised
the meeting by insisting that the services ol Mr. McKinnon be retained ns
supervisor until March i, the end o!
tho fiscal year. It was explained to
Mr. Hood that the committee's first
Intention was to get the necessary
money to pay the amount alleged to be
due the Y.M.CA. up to next March
Mr. Hood, however, could not he Induced tn agi-te tn this prnpositlon.
claiming Cumberland was morally
bound to have the services of Mr. McKinnon until March 3 anyway, even I!
the full amount owing to the Y.M.CA
was paid In the meantime.

WOMEN'S BRANCH
(Continued from Page One)
the Cumberland Association wanted tc
win tills seat for tlle party. Therefore thoy wanted all the ladies whe
agreed with them to Join tn their
efforts and to work hard also to help
win the seat.
Capt. J. C. Brown, secretary of the
men's association, said that the returned men of Cumberland had endorsed the candidature of Mr. Chas
Graham, but Mr. raham had declined
the nomination, and Mr. McDonald,
having been nominated that evening,
had now become their choice. He
llgured that the returned men of Cumberland and Mervllle—who, he said,
were practically ununlnious as to Mr
i-iiliiun's candidature -would now fall
into line and give Mr. McDonald the
support.
Mr. McDonald's record in this city
and district as mayor of Cumberland
uud member of the city council for a
great number of years, surpassed thai
of any man in Cumberland, said Mr.
Brown. Those present
Brown. On every, occasion on which
Mr. McDonald had stood for mayor
there seemed to be no chance of any
one else getting ln.
In addition to his civic work in Cum
berland, Mr. McDonald had, during.the
war and since, done a great deal ot
work for the overseas and returned
men, and it was largely through his influence and hard work that they had
received the vote here for the Memorial Hall and the various donations
they had obtained for that object. He
felt, therefore, quite confident that Mr.
McDonald would have the support of
every returned soldier in Cumberland.
Mr. McDonald's reputation stood
high in the esteem ef the whole constituency, and that in itself was a
large drawing card. Mr. McDonald's
executive ability, perhaps greater than
his political or platform talk, would
do more for the constitutency and the
district in parliament, if he were sent
there, than anything that might be
done by a man who might appeal more
strongly to the public from the platform.
In response to the chairman's request the ladles present unanimously
agreed to form themselves into an
auxiliary association, and the meeting proceeded to appoint offlcerB, as
follows:
Chairwoman, Mrs. C. J. Bunbury.
.Vice-chairwoman, Mrs. Derbyshire.
Secretary (pro tem), Mrs. Walker,
Jr.
Treasurer, Miss Christine McDonald.
It was agreed that the formation of
a general committee, to be composed
of 6 to 8 members, be left to the next
meeting.
Two lady delegates, Mrs. Bunbury
and Mrs. Walker Sr., were then chosen
by the meeting to nccdmpany tlle six
men delegates to the convention nt
Campbell River.
On motion of Miss McDonald, seconded hy Mrs. Slaughter, It was agreed
that the Women's Association meet on

OVER 10,000 EXHIBITS IN

"Hell-Fire Corner," "Piccadilly"

Signposts bearing the Inscriptions
"Hell Fire Corner," "Piccadilly" and
"Haig Avenue," erected by British
troops just behind the front lines in
Prance, are among the more than 10,-
000 exhibits being assembled at Crystal Palace, London, to form the Imperial War Museum. It will be opened
by tbe King in June and will continue
for four years.
Exhibits innumerable have been
gathered from every land where the
war cast its trail to show the common
effort of the Emplro during tho great
conflict. Shortly after the signing of
the armistice the memorable signposts
mentioned were found discarded as
lumber. In addition to those bearing
"street" names, which, to many of the
men who knew tbem best, had meant
so many direction posts to avenues of
agony, there was found the rallying
trench sign ot Verdun with its "No
Thoroughfare." They were all res
cued and are now to be preserved as
relics for posterity.
There will be on display tbe gun
that fired the first British shot in the
war—from the deck of the destroyer
Lance at the minelayer Koenlg Louise
the E battery gun that opened the mill
tary hostilities; the anti-aircraft pompom which, mounted at Gresham college, fired the flrst shot ever directed
at a foreign foe from London since the
days of the Romans—the occasion being the Zeppelin ralU In September,

of which weigh 14 tons, are being ar

CHARGES GOVERNMENT WITH
NEEDLESS ELECTION EXPENSE
When the Mistake
Is Yours
Help Correct It
Sometimes as soon as you give the operator a
telephone number from memory, you realize you have
called the wrong number. The flrst impulse is to hang
up the receiver, but you should wait and say to the
other party, "Beg pardon for calling the wrong number."  Then everybody feels all right about it.
If you hang up the receiver without acknowledging your error, the operator gets the blame when she
tells the other party that "there's no one on the line."
British Columbia Telephone Co.
Charging that the Oliver government had put the country to needless
expense by holding two elections so
close to each other, an expense that
would bo at least $100,000 more than
was necessary, Hon. W. J. Bowser,
Conservative Leader, in the opening
speech of his campaign at Mllncr,
threw out a challenge to Premier
Oliver to submit to the electors of
British Columbia the bill dealing with
government control of the sale of
liquor and at the same time predicted
that tlie government would go through
the present campaign without drafting
any bill on this question.
"The government muat have
known what the bill they would submit to tlle people If moderation or
prohibition carried would be, but Instead of taking the course of a man
with the courage of his convictions,
Premier Oliver ls attempting to get
through thin election without letting
the people know Just what thc government Intends to do. I Bay Premier
Oliver is appealing to the electors for
a vote of confidence ln his government,
and he has no right to go to the people
and ask them to sign a blank cheque,"
declared Mr. Bowser.
"I challenge the premier to produce
his bill so that thc men and women
who voted for moderation or prohibition will bo able to say whether the
government has kept its promise or
not. I venture to predict, however,
that the government will never draft
a bill that you will see In this campaign. Tbe scandal of the enforcement of the Prohibition Act stinks to
high heaven. Hon. Mr. Farris took Its
enforcement away from the provincial
constabulary and put lt under a commissioner who didn't steal cases of
whiskey but took It hy the carload,
right under FarrlR' nose,"
"The people who voted for moderation did not vote for a dissolute condition, but that is evidently what they
will get, if the administration of the
Prohibition Act by the Oliver government can be taken as any criterion."
Compares Expenditures.
Mr. Bowser referred to the repeated
charges of extravagance laid against
hiB government and replied by quoting figures showing the 'expenditure
under the Oliver government to have
increased from $1,980,000 in the firsl
year they took Ollice on an economy
platform, up to $3,202,482, this beina
the cost of civil service alone, compared with $1,664,000 Ihe last year the
Bowser administration waa in ollice.
In the last four years, he said, the
Oliver government had borrowed $27,■
586,500, compared with $12,405,000 hor-
rowed by the Bowser administration
In thirteen years. Ho asked where
that $27,000,000 had gone to, declaring
lt had not gone Into schools, hosplteli
or roads, the latter he declared being
full of chuck holes. It was hardly sail
to travel on these roads now, he added,
on account of the number or government automobiles traversing them. In
this connection he said the government had spent $150,000 on sums
alone.
"When we left ollice thore were
15,000 miles hf roads. 6000 miles ol
trails, 60 miles ot bridges, and yet
Oliver cannot show ine' une mile of
roadway that his government has built
since coming Into olfloe," said the
speaker. "But there has been a reckless expenditure of public funds, a
recklessness that bas never been
known before. Tbey have beeu spending money liko drunken sailors. When
we wont out of offlcn Ibe net debt of
thc province was $19,000,000, now It is
$33,000,000, an added $14,000,000 In
four years for which tliey can show
nothing."
Tries to Steal Advantage.
Tho public Is In a much more serious mood since the war he said, and
was giving more attention to questions of the day. He declared the
premier had brought on the elections
because he thought that by so doing
he would have the advantage over his
opponents. When he was In Ihe north
recently at Pouce Coupe, he saw thai
the Oliver government Intended to Indulge ln a campaign of abuse, when
the premier went through the district
saying that the leader of the opposition was a perjurer because he refused
to answer a question put to him by a
"kangaroo" committee. He said there
never was a greater scandal than that
of the P. G. E. committee, and recited
the summoning of Thomas before the-
Provincial
Election
Coming!
The Provincial Legislature has been dissolved and an election
will be held on Wednesday, December 1, 1920.
The Liberal administration appeals to the electorate for re-election
in the firm confidence that the record of the past four years of
safe, sane and progressive administration of the affairs of British
Columbia has met with the approval of every man and woman
who has the best interests of the Province at heart.
The future policy of the Oliver Government will be to continue its
progressive work in every department with the idea of'developing
the vast natural resources of British Columbia for the general
benefit of the people.

THE CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE
Considerable disappointment was manifested in town
.Monday evening when it became known that Mr. Charles
Graham, the genial and popular District Superintendent
ot ihe Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir), Ltd., had declined
to be the Cumberland nominee at the Conservative Convention being held at Campbell River. The consensus ot
opinion is that Mr. Graham would have had a decided
walkover In the Comox Electoral District had he allowed
himself to be nominated. .Mr. Graham, however, feels that
be holds a very responsible position in the Canadian Collieries and that his whole duty to the Company cunnot be
fulfilled wlih entire satisfaction unless be devotes his whole
time to iheir Interests.
The local association is to be congratulated on Its
Becond choice of a candidate In His Worship Mayor D.
It. McDonald. Mr. McDonald has been a resident of Cumberland for no less than 28 years. During that period be
has beeu un outstanding figure In public life and has at
all limes taken a keen interest in the welfare of the district.
He has served on public bodies of all kinds, having been
many years a councillor and four times mayor of the city,
three times being elected to that position and at the last
election receiving Ihe honor by acclamation.
Mr. McDonald is regarded as one of the most sterling and
reliable men in the whole district, having a reputation for
honesty and integrity possessed by few citizens of the
Island. Should he secure the nomination at the Convention
being held at Campbell River ns this is written, we have no
doubt he will be elected. The Oliver Government is doomed
to defeat, because it has been weighed in the balance of
public opinion and found wanting, and we do not know of
any man better fitted than Mr. McDonald to represent the
Comox District in Parliament in the new administration.
WOMEN'S CONSERVATIVE ASSOCIATION
Xo doubt considerable Interest will be aroused in Cumlierland district by the newly formed Women's Auxiliary
Branch of the Conservative Association. This is the lirst
time the women of British Columbia have had an opportunity of recording their votes at a Provincial election, and
lt Is perhaps not too much to say that the country is looking expectantly to seo whether every woman will do her
duty at and before the poll. For years women fought
patiently and strenuously for the right to vote, and wherever they have exercised the franchise the result has been
for the good of the country.
There are many matters at issue at the present time of
particular interest to women voters—tbe high cost of living,
the more than vexed question of sane temperance legislation, problems ln connection with the returned men, better
housing, education, legislation affecting Juvenile offenders
and the feeble-minded—to mention only a few matters
iiitimatly affecting our individual hearths and homes.
Women may now throw tlieir weight into the political scale
on ouch and every matter of public import in the same
degree as the male elector has done in the past, I.e., by
selecting to represent them in Parliament men and women
who will have their mandate to present their views and
wishes In Parliament. It Is now. up to them to show
whether they appreciate tho power of this coveted weapon
—the vote—and go forward at this election ill great numbers to the poll. The women voters of Cumberland have
already publicly indicated their intention to take an active
part in the forthcoming election, and we hope that the
newly formed Women's Conservative Association will do
much good work in the campaign.
We have been asked by the President of the Women's
Association to draw the special attention of women electors
n Cumberland, interested in the candidature of His Worship
Mayor McDonald, to the fact that they can be ot great
assistance to tbe new organization by attending the meetings and co-operating wilh them in tbe work of the campaign. It Is hoped that all ladles interested, and who
appreciate their new power as voters, will attend the meeting in the King Building ou Tuesday evening, particulars
of which will be found lu another column.
"BILLY" SETS OUT TO START SOMETHING
Former County Court Judge Mclnnes is nothing If not
sensational or original In politics. He went to Ottawa as a
youth and made some of the ancient politicians there sit
up and take notice, and even the sedate old Globe ("the
Scotchman's Bible"! gave Billy quite a lengthy write-up
ln Its columns. Then he found Ottawa too sedate and old-
fashioned, so he went back lo Comox and asked them to
end him to Victoria, as they did. During tbe rush to the
Yukon "Billy," as the miners call him, went up Into the
frozen north to keep things from getting too warm, and
made a governor tbat tbo old-timers still talk about. All
kinds of politics became too hum-drum and "Billy" got himself made County Court Judge. Through time that also got
too monotonous and he resigned to run as a Laurier Liberal
in Vancouver and was delegated to remain in Vancouver.
Now he has gone back to Comox and he wants the miners
and thc farmers and returned soldiers to send him to Victoria again as an independent candidate. In announcing
his intention to run In Cpmox, Mr. Mclnnes said that his
object ls to give full effect to the vote of October 20, which
he interpreted to mean that as far as the sale of liquor
was concerned, a man should get what he wants at a reasonable price, subject only to such restrictions as were
outlined in tlie policy of the Moderationists.
He has ulher planks in his platform but this ls the most
outstanding. He sure has the action behind his convictions, whether we feel like approving of it or not, and the
election in Comox will he watched with interest, and Mr.
Hugh Stewart will have to look to his laurels as an Oliver
candidate, now that a real live man has entered the field.
Billy" Is no more in love with Oliver than the rest of us.

The public is neutral.   It doesn't care who drops a profit
or who it falls on, just so the price comes down.
A Vancouver election would hardly he complete without
"Fighting" Joe Martin throwing his political hat in the ring.
ELECTORS OF
BRITISH COLUMBIA
Do you want your taxes doubled? Do you
want your roads to continue in a state of disrepair? If so, re-elect the Oliver Administration
Their one claim to success during the past
four years is the increase of the Provincial
Debt from $19,000,000 to $33,000,000, together
with the doubling of Rural Taxation, this
without any tangible evidence of value received.
If, on the other hand, the men and women
electors of British Columbia desire a common
sincere adminstration that will demand value
for the expenditure of every dollar of the
people's money

MUNICIPAL MANAGER
URGED FOR NANAIMO
NANAIMO.—To draw upon the experience ot Kamloops, where a manager has been conducting municipal
business, was the decision of the City
Council at its meeting this week, when
Aid. Hart again brought up the question of a city manager. The alderman maintained that the work of a
municipality, from bookkeeping to en
glneerlng, could be done by a competent man.

VICTORIA.—After October 15 of
this year every person in the Dominion of Canada who has a "cannon,
machine gun, rifle, revolver or other
firearm" in his possession, with the
exception of a shotgun allowed to British subjects alone, ls guilty of an
offence under the amended section 118
of the Criminal Code, unless that person has taken out a permit from the
police for having such firearms in his
possession.
The section of the Criminal Cod?
covering the above states In part. "Any
person having ln their possession any
cannon, machine gun, rifle—or otlier
firearm, without a permit therefor"—
Is guilty undor the act, "provided however, that no British subject Is required to have a permit for any Hhot-
fun."
Virtually this means that there are
thousands of offenders today who have
unwittingly trespassed along the walk
of criminal negligence as viewed by
this section of the amended code.
Everyone with the necessary household revolver, without a permit for It,
ls guilty of the offence, and liable to a
penalty on conviction. Every sportsman with a rifle, without permit, is
also guilty, and it is expressly stated
that shooting licences will not be accepted as "permits."
Every American or other person,
resident In Canada, uot a British subject, wbo even has a shotgun anywhere ln his possession, without the
permit, Is guilty of an offence.

"Stunt Night"
On Thursday evening the Junior
Bible Class of the Presbyterian Church
put on something new and novel In the
way of entertainment, as suggested by
the heading. The programme was
original and did credit to those ln
charge.
The opening stunt was "The Pig
Tall Stunt on the Animated Scale," in
which were a number of young girls,
with au occasional boy, done up with
tails and cards with music; notation,
led by a young man who pulled the
tails and produced inharmonious
music. It was a real good stunt and
produced a lot of laughter.
Mrs. Gordon favored the audience
with a solo, which was well appreciated.
Another well-merited stunt was
"Bluebird," which was well rendered,
and Jack Fouracre and Miss Brown
did themselves great credit, In fact so
well did Miss Brown accomplish her
part, as one of the Bluebird's wives,
that quite a number of the boys at the
back of the hall suggested she was
only acting her regular part. Jack led
well sin his several parts; especially
did he shine when he came In with the
big hatchet to behead his wife for
curlousness, and Lome Fraser was
there with the goods, in his soldier
suit, when the time came for someone
to do the heroic.
A recitation was given by Phenle
Brown, Grace Watson and Pearl
Hunden. This trio did splendid, and
great credit is due to them for the
splendid manner in which they got
through their several parts, at the ex-
penes of the other, and the laughing of
the audience.
Solo and chorus, Pearl Hunden.
Vivien, the ventriloquist, and her
talking dolls, did well, and produced
much amusement.
Drew Wilson and Marlon Macliay
sang a duet, which was well rendered.
Blau Williams sang a solo.
Another stunt worthy of mention
was "A sMother and Her Family,"
which was well done, and showed good
ability on the part of the mother.
A duet was given by Edith Hood and
Etta Hood, and a reading by Mr. Hood.
Grace Watson and company gave a
boIo and chorus.
Tho final event of the night was
easily worth the price of admission.
It was entitled, "A Darlttown Wedding." Jack Fouracre was the Officiating clergyman and he sure did his
part to perfection; his dresn and I1I5
speech was sll that could be desired.
and he gave the couple about to enter
Into holy matrimony a belter lecture
than most couples get, and got oil wilh
It, loo. Oomory Hood wan one of the
victims and Beatrice Mitchell, ah the
other, looked and carried olf her part;
Donald Watson, who supported the
bridegroom, with his chicken under
his arm, looked every Inch the Coon
that he was.
After singing "God Save the King"
refreshments were served and brought
a very pleasant evening to a close.

THE   CUMBERLAND   ISLANDER
November 6,
TO THE ELECTORS OF
Comox District
Ladies and Gentlemen—
Having been requested by a large number of
voters in your District to run as an Independent Candidate in the current election, I have consented to do
so. The following views are submitted for your consideration and support.:
LIQUOR QUESTION
I am a firm believer in Government Control and
pledge myself to give full effect to tlie Moderation
majority of October :20th. The people knew exactly
what they were voting for ami should now insist upon
their voice being carried out, There is already evidence
that the enemies of freedom are active to defeat the
will of the people. There is only one way to have effect
given to the Moderation victory and that is to elect
men to the Legislature who will stand true to its principles. I interpret the vote of October 20th as a
declaration by the people of this Province that they
are weary of unwarranted interference with their
natural liberties, and that for the future they intend
to assert their right like real men and women to get
what they want when they want it at a reasonable price
without corrupting a doctor or patronizing a conscienceless bootlegger. If the wish of the electors is fulfilled
with determination in legislation and administration
the advantages to British Columbia cannot be over
estimated. Great numbers of freedom-loving people
will flock to the Province as a place to visit and reside;
wealth will follow them and become invested in our
development; Government revenues will be greatly increased and taxes reduced. In a word British Columbia with its other many advantages will become the
most prosperous and attractive portion of North
America.
LABOR
I stand for a minimum wage and eight-hour day,
greatest safety in working conditions, old agp pensions
and insurance against injury and enforced idlories3. I
also believe in the principle of profit-sharing (that
those who labor will receive a fair share of tha wealth
they are largely instrumental in creating) and will
always use my influence to that end.
SOLDIERS
I recognize the debt due the returned soldier and
will upon every occasion support any assistance or
preference to him or his dependents which does not
tend to pauperize or smell of charity.
FARMERS
Good roads are essential. I am opposed to the
wasteful method of repair and construction which has
been in vogue in this Province in the past—namely, of
putting loose earth on the roads in summer only to
have it washed off with the early winter rains. I
believe the time has come when all trunk roads should
be hard surfaced. They will be expensive but they will
be permanent and the future will help to pay for them
while the living will enjoy them.  -
I also advocate a system of. closer relationship
between the farmer and the consumer. It would mean
more money to the farmer for his produce and cheaper
living to the consumer.
ASIATIC QUESTION
This question has not received of late the attention
it deserves at the hands of our Legislators. To my
mind it is a more important question today than it
ever was. As always I will work and vote for more
drastic laws for their exclusion and curtailment of
their employment.
LOGGERS
More inexpensive and efficient laws are needed to
secure wages. Steps should be taken to revive hand
logging and encourage small operators.
MINES
Proper laws and enforcement of laws to secure
safety <5f workers and ensure relief from unfair competition.
NATURAL RESOURCES
Our natural resources should be safeguarded and
a firm policy adopted whereby they will be alienated
only to those who will actually use them. British
Columbia should cease to be a preserve for the speculator and become rather a fleld of encouragement for all
who will legitimately help develop new properties and
create new industries.
POLICE AND PRISON REFORM
I am convinced that one police force for the Province is desirable. I also believe in the appointment of
Public Defenders as well as Public Prosecutors.
WOMEN
The laws now existing regarding Divorce are
unequal and unfair to wives. I will move to amend
these laws so as to equalize rights. I have supported
mothers' pensions and I will work for the extension of
the principle.
I will co-operate with any member or party for the
fulfilment of the above objects.
Yours faithfully,
W. W. B. McINNES
November 1st, 1920.

everything before them. Strachan sent
in a" nice shot, hitting the cross-bars,
the ball bouncing into play.   Keenan
connected and beat   Walker with a
hard drive.   Five minutes later Keenan
again   broke   through    between   the
backs on his own and beat Walker.
The score now being even it was a
ding-dong game, the   ball   travelling
fast from end to end, both goalkeepers
being called upon to clear their lines
on several occasions, but Cumberland
forwards   again   broke   through   the
Bevan defence and Coe sent in a nice
cross, which Keenan, being in a nice
position, had no difficulty in heating
Walker for the   third   time.    A few
minutes later the same player accepted a cross from Strachan and scored
the fourth goal for Cumberland.   Full
time was then called, the score being
Cumberland 4 goals and Bevan 2.
The score by no means Indicates the

to get through four times in the second
half.   The Bevan team Is much Improved since playing here last week,
and if they stick together they will be
a hard taem to beat in the very near

in goal, the two hacks being pretty
safe.   Weir, the centre half, was the
best of a good half-back trio, but he

Joachim was another great violinist who is known as the most distinguished teacher and greatest violinist of recent times. Joachim insulted
the Kaiser, for when the Kaiser asked
Joachim to teach two of his sons the
violin, Joachim replied, "Your majesty,
I fully appreciate the honor of teach
Ing your sons, but I am sorry to say
that all my time ls so taken up with
talented students that I find it Impos
slble to accept your majesty's offer."
Ever after tbat Joachim was no longer
a favorite with the Kaiser. Jeachlm
was the greatest teacher of his time.
He took no pupil at any price who
was not already an artist of talent,
yet we often think of the words of
Jacob Abbott who said, "Never get out
of patience with dullness or stupidity," but we are inclined to question
when we read of an examiner asking
the following questions and receiving
these replies: "What ls a double
double sharp?" "Wheu you strike two
black keys at the same time, one with
each hand."
"Define 'form' ln music."   "Well, lt

sent In by Coe and Strachan. The

No good housewife wants the little Imps of dirt, bad air,
spoiled food, stifling heat, lost time and waste In her kitchen.
She has only tolerated them because she didn't know how to get
rid of them. The Electric Range has shown her the way. The
minute it ls Installed ln her kitchen, dirt gives way to cleanliness,
bad air to pure air. The food becomes better flavored, all the
cooking more uniformly successful. The kitchen ls a cooler place
In which to work, the housewife finds hor leisure hours Increased,
and the bills grow less. The transformation ls really wonderful;
no one who haB ever known the convenience and comfort of electric cooking would ever willingly go back to other methods.
You can have this range in your kitchen. The cost Is very
moderate lu proportion to the service tt renders. Once Installed,
you will value it more highly than any household convenience
you possess. There Is an Electric Range to lit any requirement
of large or small families, big or little kitchens.
THE IMP OF
STIFLING HEAT
A kitchen the size of yours
can become almost unbearably
hot when the range Is ln full
blast. The waves of heat rising from the top of the range
are bad enough, but with the
oven going the heat given off Is
almost overpowering. Don't
you want to rout the annoying
little Imp of stilling heat from
your kitchen, to have u room
that Is always cool and comfortable?
The Good Little Fairy of
A COOL KITCHEN
The surface burners of the
Electric Range fits Into an
asbestos composition blopk,
which prevents the heat
escaping at sides or bottom Into the room. All of lt Is directed upward against the utensil.
The oven, too, has heavily Insulated walls and a tight-fitting door, which makes it aB
beat conserving as a tireless
cooker. The heat generated
by an Electric Range ls used
for cooking, not wasted In
making the kitchen uncomfortably hot. The result ls a cooler
room than Is possible with any
other type of range.

Most Thrilling Drama Ever Put
on the Screen, With Anita
Stewart as the Star.
An actual horse rase, with all It;
thrills, Is shown ln the First National
special feature, "In Old Kentucky," the
great screen classic, presenting Anitr
Stewart. This picture will he shown
at the llo-llo today, matinee aud evening.
It is the great Kentucy handicap
race, and you see lt from atari to lln-
lsh. There Is shown the gigantic
grandstands ln which thousands upon
thousands of persons aro crowded, all
cheering wildly tor their favorites.
You get a flash of the stables where
the jockeys are rubbing tbelr mounts,
ln preparation for the great event.
and then the Jockeys coming one by
one onto the track to be greeted by
cheers by the spectators.
Finally you Bee Miss Stewart come
on the track at the last moment
dressed aB a jockey, to ride for one ol'
the jockeys who bas been drugged, lu
order to frame the race.
Then comes the call for the start
from the judges' stand and a score of
mounts are off in the great race. The
camera follows the horses practically
from the start to tbe finish, as one
forges ahead and another drops gradually behind.
Miss Stewart, who Is an expert
horsewoman, rides In a mad gallop,
at first far behind, but gradually working her way to the front, until at the
end Bhe goes under the wire a nose
ahead, winning the race.
There ls all the wild enthusiasm of
the most exciting race, and it grips
with the same dramatic intensity those
who watch the picture.
Night Riders' Chase Thrilling,
The night riders' chase ls one of the
big scenes ln this picture. The setting
of It is back in the old lawless days
when tbe moonshiners dlied the law
and when men of the mountains still
settled their differences with the gun,
while tbe men of the cities, impatient of the delays of the law, often
took Into their own hand.
So were the night riders formed,
men who masked and hunted the
fugitives on horseback, where they
held a quick tria land condemned the
victim according to their" own views
of justice.
In the story the night riders were
called out to pursue a mountaineer,
wbo had been accused of setting fire
to a barn, drugging a jockey nnd attempting to shoot one of the firsl
citizens. t
They are Informed of thc trail he
has taken to his mountain home and
come out In scores to capture him.
Masked rider after masked rider appear at the rendezvous until all are
present when they take up the chase.
They race pell mell over the mountainous country, leaping hedge and
stream and gallop madly over the
rough rocky roads on the edge of
cliffs and ravines, or across country
In small paths or no paths. It is a
stirring chase by experienced riders,
for a mishap would mean serious ln-
Jurp or even death.
Gradually they gain on the fugitive,
until he ls finally captured, und the
preliminaries of the trial are arranged
for ln the darkness of the night, lighted only by torches.

I am a firm believer in Government Control and
pledge myself to give full effect to the Moderation
majority of October 20th. The people knew exactly
what they were voting for and should now insist upon
their voice being carried out. There is already evidence
that the enemies of freedom are active to defeat the
will of the people. There is only one way to have effect
given to the Moderation victory and that is to elect
men to the Legislature who will stand true to its principles. I interpret the vote of October 20th as a
declaration by the people of this Province that they
are weary of unwarranted interference with their
natural liberties, and that for the future they intend
to assert their right like real men and women to get
what they want when they want it at a reasonable price
without corrupting a doctor or patronizing a conscienceless bootlegger. If the wish of the electors is fulfilled
with determination in legislation and administration
the advantages to British Columbia cannot be over
estimated. Great numbers of freedom-loving people
will flock to the Province as a place to visit and reside;
wealth will follow them and become invested in our
development; Government revenues will be greatly increased and taxes reduced. In a word British Columbia with its other many advantages will become the
most prosperous and attractive portion of North
America.
LABOR
I stand for a minimum wage and eight-hour day,
greatest safety in working conditions, eld age pensions
and insurance against injury and enforced idleness. I
also believe in the principle of profit-sharing (th.it
those who labor will receive a fair share of ths wealth
they are largely instrumental in creating) and will
always use my influence to that end.
SOLDIERS
I recognize the debt due the returned soldier and
will upon every occasion support any assistance or
preference to him or his dependents which does not
tend to pauperize or smell of charity.
FARMERS
Good roads are essential. I am opposed to the
wasteful method of repair and construction which has
been in vogue in this Province in the past—namely, of
putting loose earth on the roads in summer only to
have it washed off with the early winter rains. I
believe the time has come when all trunk roads should
be hard surfaced. They will be expensive but they will
be permanent and the future will help to pay for them
while the living will enjoy them.   ■
I also advocate a system of, closer relationship
between the farmer and the consumer. It would mean
more money to the farmer for his produce and cheaper
living to the consumer.
ASIATIC QUESTION
This question has not received of late the attention
it deserves at the hands of our Legislators. To my
mind it is a more important question today than it
ever was. As always I will work and vote for more
drastic laws for their exclusion and curtailment of
their employment.
LOGGERS
More inexpensive and efficient laws are needed to
secure wages. Steps should be taken to revive hand
logging and encourage small operators.
MINES
Proper laws and enforcement of laws to secure
safety df workers and ensure relief from unfair competition.
NATURAL RESOURCES
Our natural resources should be safeguarded and
a firm policy adopted whereby they will be alienated
only to those who will actually use them. British
Columbia should cease to be a preserve for the speculator and become rather a field of encouragement for all
who will legitimately help develop new properties and
create new industries.
POLICE AND PRISON REFORM
I am convinced that one police force for the Province is desirable. I also believe in the appointment of
Public Defenders as well as Public Prosecutors.
WOMEN
The laws now existing regarding Divorce are
unequal and unfair to wives. I will move to amend
these laws so as to equalize rights. I have supported
mothers' pensions and I will work for the extension of
the principle.
I will co-operate with any member or party for the
fulfilment of the above objects.
Yours faithfully,
W. W. B. McINNES

Fast Game
The Cumberland Juniors met tlie
Bevan Juniors in a Junior League fixture on the new recreation ground*
last .Sunday, when the weather was
ideal for football and a large crowd
turned out to see the game.
Mr. Bobbie Brown was referee.
The teams were:
Bevan Juniors—Walker, Thompson,
Thompson, Robertson, Weir, Fielding,
Parks, Cameron, Aitken Brown and
Williams.
Cumberland Juniors—Boffey, Boyd,
Lewis, Stewart, Mitchell, Lockart, Coe.
McNeil, Keenan, Gibson, Strachan.
Cumberland won the toss and Aitken
kicked oh* for Bevan and immediately
made for Cumberland goal, and Williams, their outside left, came near
scoring. The Bevan forwards again
gut going and seemed to be a source
ul' trouble to the Cumberland defence.
Iiowever, the home boys got away.
Coe passed to Keenan but their chance
was spoiled as Keenan was tripped
just outside the penalty area. Keenan
took the free kick but the ball passed.
Cumberland forwards were now on to
their right game, and time and again
each of them tried Walker, the Bevan
goalkeeper, with some pretty hard
shots, but he disposed of every one ot
them iu good style. Parka, for Bevau,
sent In a nice cross and Aitken caught
It with a back heel and scored a lovely
goal. The local boys then got going,
and Strachan sent in a long drive and
the little goalkeeper of Bevau tipped
it nicely over the bar, and received a
tremendous cheer for his splendid
save, which was something of the
senior class. Give aud take play followed until half time, with the score
Bevan 1 goal and Cumberland 0.       '

The chesty concert singer said to
his friend, "I am thinking of touring
South Africa next year." His friend
said, "Take my advice and don't; an
ostrich egg weighs two or three
pounds, you know." What a difference to that most lovable and Interesting character Chopin, his delicate
touch full ot expression and exquisite
grace, his physical condition debarred
him from every bodily exertion. He
was seriously restricted always by a
lack ot strength, and died at the age
of forty. Listen to what Chopin said
of himself: "I am well and in good
sprlits; why, I do not know, but the
but the people here (Vienna) are astonished at me, aud I wonder at them
for finding anything to wonder at in
me. My manner of playing pleases
the ladies so much, I move in the
highest circles and I do not know how
I got there. I am in the world like an
E. string of the violin on a contrabass."
Living during the Bamo period but
in the little country of Belgium, was
de Berlot, a man of different habltB
This talented violinist was appointed
solo violinist to William I. King of
the Netherlands,-   De Berlot received
a New Year's present of a dozen bot-
ati'd within" lira minute3 Robertson , ties of champagne from a wealthy
had netted their second goal, but al- friend. The violinist consumed the
thourh tv.-o goals down this did_not wine and returned the empty case with
dishearten the Cumberland boys. They
started right ln and practically took
everything before them. Strachan sent
in a nice shot, hitting the cross-bars,
the ball bouncing into play. Keenan
connected and beat Walker with a
hard drive. Five minutes later Keenan
again broke through between the
backs on his own and beat Walker.
The score now being even it was a
ding-dong game, the ball travelling
fast from end to end, both goalkeepers
being called upon to clear their lines
on several occasions, but Cumberland
forwards again broke through the
Bevan defence and Coe sent in a nice
cross, which Keenan, being In a nice
position, had no difficulty in beating
Walker for the third time. A few
minutes later the same player accepted a cross from Strachan and scored
the fourth goal for Cumberland. Full
time was then called, the Bcore being
Cumberland 4 goals aud Bevan 2.
The score by no means Indicates the
run of play, Cumberland being lucky
to get through four times in the second
half. The Bevan team is much lip-
proved siuce playing here last week,
and If they stick together Ihey will be
a Hard taem to beat ill the very near
future. Walker played a great game
In goal, the two backs being pretty
safe. Weir, the centre half, was the
best of a good half-back trio, but he
seems to wander too much at times.
All of the live forwards were In good
form and played some good combination.
The Cumberland boys were long ln
settling down. Boffey played a very
good game ln goal, saving a few hard
his card, on which he had written
"encore." His patron did not resent
this, but sent a second lot with his
visiting card, on which he had written
the word "Finale."
Joachim was another great violinist who is known as the most distinguished teacher and greatest violinist of recent times. Joachim Insulted
the Kaiser, for when the Kaiser asked
Joachim to teach two of his sons the
violin, Joachim replied, "Your majesty,
I fully appreciate tbe honor of teaching your sons, but I am sorry to say
that all my time is so taken up with
talented students that I find it impossible to accept your majesty's offer."
Ever after that Joachim was no longer
a favorite with the Kaiser. Jeachim
was the greatest teacher of his time.
He took no pupil at any price who
was not already an artist of talent,
yet we often think of thc words of
Jacob Abbott who said, "Never get out
of patience with dullness or stupidity," but we are Inclined to question
when we read of an examiner asking
the following questions and receiving
these replies: "What Is a double
double sharp?" "When you strike two
black keys at the same time, one with
each hand."
"Define 'form' In music." "Well, lt
ls not good form to applaud by stamp
and difficult shots.   Boyd was good at • ing your feet; you should clap your
back, but Lewis seemed to be off form,
sometimes missing the ball entirely,
and hlo tackling waa not up to date.
All the half-backs played good, but not
until the second half did the forwards
play well. Keenan ln centre, especially took advantage of the nice crosses
sent in by Coe and Strachan. The
game was the best junlur llxturc seen
on the recreation grounds this season.

She haB only tolerated them because she didn't know how to get

minute It ls Installed ln her kitchen, dirt gives way to cleanliness,
bad air to pure air. The food becomes better flavored, all tbe
cooking more uniformly successful. The kitchen ls a cooler place
ln which to work, the housewife finds her leisure hours Increased,
and the bills grow less. The transformation is really wonderful;
no one who has ever known the convenience and comfort of electric cooking would ever willingly go back to other methods.
You cau have this range in your kitchen. Tbe cost Is very

THE IMP OF
STIFLING HEAT
A kitchen the size of yours
can become almost unbearably
bot wben the range is in full
blast. The waves of heat rising from the top of the range
are bad enough, but with the
oven going the heat given off ls
almost overpowering. Don't
you want to rout tbe annoying
little imp of stilling heat from
your kitchen, to hnve a room
that ts always cool and comfortable?
The Good Little Fairy of
A COOL KITCHEN
The surface burners ot the
Electric Range fits into an
asbestos composition blopk,
which prevents the heat
escaping at Bides or bottom into the room. All of lt Ib directed upward against the utensil.
The oven, too, has heavily insulated walls and a ttght-nt-
ting door, which makes it as
heat conserving aB a tireless
cooker. The heat generated
by an Electric Range is used
for cooking, not wasted lu
making the kitchen uncomfortably hot. Tbe result Is a cooler
room than ls possible with any
other type of range.

"THE RIVER'S END"
A Smashing New Story of God's

"The River's End" ls a smashing
new story of God's Country, * of the
snow wastes of the frozen north, of
the edge of civilization, where there
are no traditions and men meet life
with all the strength of soul within
them—virile men who may be good or
bad, but whatever they are they are
strong.
An unusual and quaint form of plotting is one of tbe moro Intensely Interesting features of "Tho River's
End," from the story by James Oliver
Curwood, which will be Bhown at the
llo-llo Theatre on Saturday next,
November 18th, afternoon and evening.
The introductory scenes of the film
find John Keith, haunted for years by
the murder of Judge Klrkstone, captured by Derwenl Connlston of the
Canadian Mounted Police. A striking
resemblance between the two men In
build and facial characteristics leads

BOYS' WORK COMMITTEE
PRESENTS PLAN
(Continued from Page One)
city did not require his services,
though It would upset his arrangements and necessitate the calling together of the Y.M.CA. committee to
deal with the matter. But Mr. McKinnon, profiting by Y.M.CA. experience,
he said, was quite sure the local plan
was doomed to failure and would soon
die a natural death.
However, all present, with the exception of Mr. Hood, were of the opposite opinion.
After some discussion as to the
power of the meeting to deal with the
matter, it was decided that the question be left until another meeting
could be held to which more of the
gentlemen who were present at the
previous meeting could be present.
Men's Club Social

The following articles wore discovered in the hall after the affair was
over: Pair of tan gloves, a black
scarf and two umbrellas. Owners will
please call for them.
There Ib an armless man ln Vancouver who can pick up pins with his
toeB. That's nothing. We know a girl
In Cumberland who can pick up men
with her eyes.
