Liberal Administration Was
Elected on Minority Vote
Liberals Polled Thirty-Nine Per Cent, of Votes Cast, Getting
136,939 Votes Against 218,217 Votes for Conservatives and
Independents of All Classes—Complete Detailed Figures for
All Ridings in the Province Published Herewith.
VICTORIA.—At the recent Provincial general elections a total
of 136,939 votes were cast for Liberals, 94,903 for Conservatives,
and 123,314 for Independent candidates of all shades of political
ideas.
With a Conservative-Independent vote nearly double that received by the Government, the Liberal administration was yet
sustain.*!, capturing twenty-six seats against fourteen captured
by the Conservatives and seven by the Independents.
The Government's aggregate vote was 39 per cent, of the total
polled. In compiling the above figures the totals polled in Vancouver and Victoria are given, though, of course, these totals were
greatly swelled by the fact that in the former city one voter could
vote for six candidates, and in the latter, four. Thus the totals
are far in excess of the actual number of voters who voted.
The full returns for the election are now available following the
completion of the count of the absentee ballots.  Below are given
the complete detailed figures for all the candidates in the thirty-
nine ridings of the Province:

BASKETBALL GAME AT
COURTENAY HUGE JOKE
The basketball game at Courtenay
last Monday between the team run by
Freddie Dhllos and the Courtenay boys
waB a farce from start to finish. The
Dallos team went off with a mad rush
and scored no less than 8 points In
the first four minutes—then tell away
and died. As the game progressed It
developed Into an American Rugby
game instead of basketball. The
Courtenay boys eventually piled up 15
points against the local's 12. -
The local boys took a few lady fans
along with them, and they were about
the only ones rooting for Cumberland
—but they surely did root!
On the return game, Dallos declares
his team will win easily. The following was the line-up: Cumberland:
F. Dallos and "Sacki" Conti, forwards;
J. Dallos, centre; Scavardo and Sommerville, guards. Courtenay: Robertson Bros., forwards; Millard, centre;
Downle and Dickson, guards.

FOOTBALL GAME WILL
LIKELY BE POSTPONED
On account ot the extremely heavy
fall of snow it ls doubtful whether
Cumberland United will be able to replay their football game with South
Wellington at Nanaimo tomorrow.
The ground will be Inspected this at-
ternoon aad the committee of the local
club will be notified of Its condition.
In the event of the game being played
all the available players will travel to
Nanaimo, but the actual team to represent Cumberland will not be picked
until a few minutes prior to the kick-
off. Owing to sickness and Injuries to
one or two of the players the man*
agement will have a hard time In lining up a good team. No matter how
the team is composed, the players are
out to win.
Nen Player Secured.
Manager Dave Wilson has been successful In securing the services of D.

the best.
Piano Recital By
Mrs. Oliver's Pupils
A most enjoyable piano recital was
held ln the Anglican Church Hall on
Friday last by some of the pupils ot
Mrs. F. Oliver. All the students
showed most careful training and great
credit is due Mrs. Oliver for the splendid programme given.
The opening chorus, "Sleeping
Beauty" waB very pretty. Miss
Claudia Harrison as the Prince looked
particularly charming. Others taking
part In the chorus were M. Bate, J.
Brown, I. Bate, M. Emde, H. Techner,
J. Falrbalrn, M. Jones, L. Leversedge,
C. Millard, M. Walker.
Miss E. Parkin of Courtenay deserves special mention for her rendering of "Barcarolle." This young pianist displayed more than ordinary
talent. Others deserving special mention are Miss Connie Bird, who played
a "Valse des Fleurs," and Miss Honor
Techner, who, for one so young, exhibited unusual musical ability.
The chorus "Muddled Rhymes' was
well received, as was a piano duet by
L. Dando and A. Dick. Other pupils
taking part were V. Aapesy, G. McFadyen, F. Hundon, E, Bennie, A.
O'Brien, E. Marsh, M. Jones, H. Marsh,
K. Richardson and Mildred Oliver, all
doing splendidly.
Frizes for the term were distributed,
the winners being: 1st, Connie Bird;
2nd, V. Aspesy; 3rd, F. Hundon; 4th,
M. Walker. A special prize for advancement went to A. Dick.
Mrs. Oliver and Mrs. Ralph Frost
gave a piano duet, "Suskspiel Overture," and were heartily encored, responding with the well known "Zampa
Overture," which they played ln their
usual finished manner.
Afternoon tea was served by Mrs.
Richardson and Mrs. Parkinson,
bringing the delightful affair to a close.
Important Meeting
Tomorrow Evening
Mayor Will Preside at Meeting
in Connection With the China
Famine Relief Fund.
A public meeting is called for Sunday evening after church hours to see
what steps can be taken locally to
meet the urgent appeal from the Canadian Mission Boards for help for fifty
million sufferers of the North part
of China, comprising principally the
province ot Honan. Inasmuch as this
territory ls the peculiar charge ot the
Canadian Missions, the appeal directed to us should not fall on deaf ears.
For twelve months rain has ceased
fall on the land, hence two crops have
been entirely lost, with the result that
right now Chinese, men, women and
children are dying by the thousands.
This meeting will be held in the
Anglican Church Hall, commencing at
8.30 o'clock, and His Worship Mayor
MacDonald has consented to occupy
the chair,

City Has Over $1,000

Total Revenue $36,711.71, and Expenditure $35,232.17—
Public Schools Used Nearly Twenty Thousand During Year.
WINNING NUMBERS IN
FOOTBALL DRAWING
The last meeting of the 1920 City Council was held in the City
Hall last evening, the chief business being the reading of the
auditor's report and balance-sheet as presented by Mr. C. W. Wood
foi' the year just closed. This report shows the city's finances to
be in a highly satisfactory condition, the council concluding tho
year with a bank balance of over one thousund dollars, and ilo
outstanding liabilities, which is unique in the history of Cumberland and probably seldom equalled in any municipality in tho
whole Dominion of Canada.
His Worship D. R. MacDonald was in the chair, Aldermen Bannerman, Brown, Pickard, Parnham, Thomson and Wier and City
Clerk Mordy being in attendance.
The report as submitted by Auditor Wood was as follows:
To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Cumberland.
Gentlemen,—I beg to submit herewith my report as auditor for the Corporation of the City of Cumberland for the year ending December 31, 1920.
BALANCE.—The business of the year shows a credit balance of $1,087.76,
as opposed to a deficit of $392.29 for the year 1919.
COLLECTIONS—Au outstanding feature is the amount of money collected
during the year, both by the tax rates and by voluntary subscriptions tor
various purposes. Taxes outstanding at present are $1,392.125, as compared
with $1,970.79 in 1919, and $5,494.77 ln 1918. This is due to the general prosperity of the city and to the beneficial effect of the tax sales.
During the year $1,062.90 was collected for paving Dunsmuir Avenue.
While It Is a credit to those who contributed and to the Council for financing
the balance of the work, it is evidence of the inadequacy of the present basis
of taxation that the work was not financed by the ordinary methods. Although
the city has no bonded debt, the rates are practically at the maximum, and it
will be Increasingly difficult in future to raise the money required for ordinary
business. The question of changing the system of taxation to meet the Increased requirements ought to be given urgent consideration by both tho
ratepayers and the Council.
SCHOOLS.—The cost of schools has Increased to $18,949.70, being an Increase of $4,222.08 over last year. This is accounted for mainly by tho
Installation of new furnaces and Increases of salaries over thoBe paid In 1919.
The Government grant shows a corresponding Increase of $1,800.50.
TRADE LICENCES.—This source of revenue shows an Increase of $642.50,
due mainly to the Imposition of "near-beer" licences in tlie hotels.
C. W. WOOD, Auditor.
The balance-Bheet in full will be
published in our next issue. The receipts show that no less than $36,711.72
was received by the city, including the
school grant from the government of
$12,607.81. The expenditures totalled
$35,232.17, of which the schools took
$19,047.70, the latter sum being made
up of $15,901.35 tor salaries, $3,048.35
for supplies and repairs, and $98 for
niglit school.
After allowing for all outstanding
cheques, the cash In hand amounts to
$1,087.76.
After full consideration of the report it was finally adopted and ordered
printed.

Worship tho Mayor paid a few complimentary remarks to thc Council for
the very harmonious and businesslike manner In which the affairs of tbe
city had been attended to. He heartily
thanked all for their assistance, remarking that they had had no troubles

After two hours hard graft at Nanaimo, neither Cumberland or Soutli
Wellington were able to notcB a goal.
Arthur Boothman was the Idol of
Llie crowd in tlie championship game.
His cool judgment and skill outshoiu
his opponent, and brought round after
round of applause from the 2500 fans
who witnessed the game.
Geordie Carle was called from the
defence and placed in tlie attack, filling tlie position vacated by Nicol who
was injured at Granby, Carle gave n

I MANY ACCIDENTS
IN LUMBER CAMPS
Most Hazardous Occupation in
Province—Over 20,000 Claims
Filed for Compensation.
The logging industry of British Columbia is still the most hazardous occupation in this province, according to
statistics compiled by the Workmen's
Compensation Board tor the years 1920
and 1919. These figures reveal the
fact that the Increase in logging accidents in 1920 over 1919 was greater
than in any other line of industry.
The figures for 1920 are, to a certain extent at least, only approximate,
since the exact totals will not be
known until all the reports have been
sent into the Workmen's Compensation Board from every part of the
province, but one of the outstanding
facts revealed ls that despite the closing down of many industries during
the past two mouths, nearly 3000 more
men were employed in those industries coming under the Workmen's
Compensation Act than during the pre
ceding year, and that in the neighborhood of $5,000,000 more was paid in
wages.
The actual payroll for those Indus
tries in 1919 was $126,829,760, com
pared with $130,000,000 for 1920. In
1919 some 109,227 men were employed,
while tbls year it is estimated tbat
112,000 men were given work.
During 1919 a total of 18,185 claims
were made, 93 were in respect of accidents happening during 1918, leaving
184 workmen fatally Injured durlug
1919. The amount paid out for compensation, pensions and medical costs
in 1919 was $1,323,990.13.
Up to date this year the total number of claims filed with the board is
20,508, of which 208 have been for
fatalities, but as 11 of these were for
1919, this leaves 197 fatal accidents
occurring during the present year. By
these figures it Is shown that 2323
more claims were filed this year than
In 1919.
Dangerous Work In Woods.
As has already been mentioned,
woods operations have again proved
the most hazardous of occupations ln
the province. For the year 1919 there
were 3051 final claims, but to date
tbere have beeu 4377 claims filed, an
increase over 1919 of 1326.
Coal mining also shows an increased
number of accidents. In 1919 there
were 840 final claims adjusted, as
against 984 for this year, a difference
of 104 more accidents happening last
year.
One of the features of tho year's
work has been the noticeable decrease
In accidents from tbe use of machinery, by reason of the accident prevention and first aid regulations put Into
effect. There has also ben a big decrease in accidents from infectious
causes, by reason of the employers
having Installed first aid departments.
WHAT A BLIND HERO SAW
MOOSE AND CARIBOU
ABOUND IN THE ROCKIES
North  of  Mount  Robson   Big
Game is Abundant.
Moose and caribou! There's plenty
of them to hunt 150 miles north of Mt.
Robson, B. C, in the Canadian Rockies.
But unlike their eastern kin, they're
up above the timberline.
An eastern big game hunter would
expect to find them In the barrens and
ts, but tbe mobarchs of the forest
are more crafty in the west.
The moose browse on the_ willows In
the fiats as they do on alders ln the
east, but they "play" and sleep and
watch from the unobstructed, vantage
points above the tree line tn the
western ranges.
On my recent big game hunt In the
Canadian Rockies, which covered 40
days, our party bagged two splendid
bull moose, both with heads of over
10-inch Bpreads, and four big bull carl
bou. We saw 20 moose, at least half of
them big bulls, and 38 caribou, of
which six or eight were bulls.
Mule deer, also, were fairly plentiful
lu this district. They had drifted down
to the lower valleys on account of the
heavy snows and unusually cold
weather.
Tbe caribou keep ln tbe alp lands
above tbe trees or In the scrubs near
the timber line. They like the high
basins, especially those that offer wet
and soggy underfooting.
This member ot the deer family has
a wonderful sense of smell. However,
its eyes far surpass those of the moose.
It seems always to be In a hurry when
going from place to place.
I'd like to see a race between a big
bull caribou and one of our best grand
circuit trotters. Believe I'd have to
bet on tbe caribou.
The moose, too, Is a trotter, but the
caribou gets away faster and covers
more ground in its stride.
The mule deer of the Rockies—or
the black-tail deer, as it Is called
is larger than the eastern species. It
has big ears and bounces like a rubber ball when on the move.—Morris
Ackerman.
In the Daily Express, H. Thompson
West Yorkshire Regt., a blind inmate
of St. Dunstan's, writes as follows:-
"The ceremony in the Abbey left an
indelible impression on my mind—a
feeling of ineffable sadness and melancholy, yet there was a message of
inspiration and hope. I felt as If the
spirit of the Unknown Warrior had
whlsyered in my ear 'Courage, brother,
hope on.' I was one of the lucky three
chosen by ballot, from 170 blind inmates of St. Dunstan's.
"I understood all, even thoiigli every
Btop and every movement was explained to me by an accompanying guide.
The atmosphere was Impregnated with
meaning. The great Alchemist, by
some miracle, vouchsafed to me a more
powerful vision than those who bad
eyes to nee. Clear-cut pictures of
France and Flanders rose up before
me. The dread solemnity of the occasion stirred the mosl poignant
memories. I felt with my comrades almost ashamed that I bad* given so
little, while he who lay sleeping by us
had given all.
"I stood near the tony; or a mighty
king. Not far away were tlie hundred
V.C.'s. 1 heard them limp to their
places and knew who they were. The
solemn rolling of the drums and the
slow martial music of tlio massed
bauds meant more to me. perhaps, than
to otlier people. When the long roll of
the reveille echoed away in tlie distance I thought a cloud bad passed
over lieail and had been chased away
by the sunshine. Then with my comrades I was granted a privilege denied
to all others. Each of us bad been
given a crysanthemurp before we left
St. Dunstan's. Others had plaecd tlieir
wreaths at the foot of (lie coffin. A
hand guided us, and we were allowed
to bestow our tribute on the coffin itself. We spoke in tlie name of our
blind comrades, and I felt a supreme
emotion .as my fingers brushed tlie
resting place of the unknown hero. I
came to the Abbey glad that 1 had
been chosen from among so many. I
went away sorrowing, but with tlie
message of hope locked in my heart."

LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE
Municipal politics will undoubtedly be the prevailing topic during the coming week. Nominations will take place on Monday and the polling (if
any) on the following Thursday. Up to the
present there are two men in the field for the
Mayoralty, D. R. MacDonald, who has held the
office of Chief Magistrate for the past two years
and on several previous occasions serving the
citizens of this city with all the diligence and
ability at his command, to such an extent that at
the last municipal election he was returned by
acclamation. Aid. John Thomson, who has been
on the Council for the past two years, and Chairman of the Board of Works, also announces himself as a candidate for the Mayoralty.
We have no objection to Aid. Thomson becoming a candidate for the office of Mayor, but we
join in the opinion of several other prominent
property holders and ratepayers of this city, that
it is advisable to leave well alone and elect the
present Mayor and Aldermen by acclamation.
It was generally understood and conceded for
the past few months, taking into consideration
the efficient service rendered during the past year
by His Worship Mayor D. R. MacDonald and
Aldermen Parnham, Pickard, Bannerman, Brown,
Thomson and Wier, who have placed the City of
Cumberland on a sound financial basis, with a
balance to the credit of the city of nearly a
thousand dollars, that they should again be elected
by acclamation and complete the work of paving
Dunsmuir Avenue commenced during the year
just passed.
The financial condition of the city is better today
than it ever was. Generally speaking, at the end
of the year there was an overdraft at the bank of
two or three thousand dollars' worth of unpaid
cheques, with public school teachers wondering
when they were going to get their salaries. During the past rear the city has met all its obligations as they fell due, with a cash balance to their
credit. And we say, with others, leave well
enough alone.
We understand the following will stand for
nomination as Alderman on the MacDonald ticket:
Chas. J. Parnham, Thomas Bannerman, Duncan
Thomson, Alex. McKinnon, Fred Pickard and
John C. Brown.
Government was so keenly alive to tlie necessity of conserving the gold supplies within the confines of the United
Kingdom that It made an order (which may be in force
yet) forbidding private parties from taking gold with them
when they left the country. Possibly Hon. John Hart, us
Finance .Minister, whispered to Hon. John Oliver, as
Premier, that the British Government might be tempted to
appropriate those precious nuggets, which are of considerable value, as ono step towards adjustment of the balance of trade. Or perhaps Hon. John Hart, wbo has been
doing a considerable amount of borrowing of late, had his
attention called to the reserve in store in British Columbia
House and decided that he couid use it to advantage In his
own business as Finance Minister. We do not admit for a
moment that tlio Uriiish Government, even in the most dire
of extremities, would undertake to lay its hands upon an
hiliit which was nt' so much value to this Province as
Irrefutable evidence uf tlie nature of our natural products.
Consequently tho only conclusion possible Is that the
nuggets have been brought back lo the place where they
were found and thnt the place which has known them so
long will know tbem no more.—Colonist.
LORD BYNG
The mention of Lord Byng, a few weeks ago, as a possible Governor-General of Canada, a rumor which lias not
been definitely contradicted, aroused a thrill of satisfaction
among members of the Canadian Expeditionary Force who
had known hlm at the battle front. As Sir Julian Byng,
these various countrymen of ours knew him under conditions which caused them to regard hlm with a deep esteem
that was tinged with affection. He won their confiidence
as a soldier, a leader and a man. Their enthusiastic
approval of him has found an echo among all of us who
admire devotion to duty and the capable fulfilment of
honorable tasks, and there would be something specially
appropriate In his appointment to the governor-generalship
of a Dominion whose sons he led to victory. Lord Byng
has never been found wanting In the earnest prosecution
of his duties. He became a soldier when lie was twenty-
one. Bom in 1S62 at tlie family estate, Wrotham Park,
Barnet, Hertfordshire, he entered the Tenth Royal Hussars.
From that day in 1883 until the close of tlie Great War he
has been constantly on duty in some corner or other of
the Empire he serves, piling up commendations, promotions,
honors, medals and even a modest title as a preface to the
greater honor of bis baronetcy, for lie was knighted in
lfllli by King George, not for any aristocratic family, but
because he hud rendered himself conspicuous by a vigorous
valor that was always associated with a certain modest
dignity.—Province.

An Appeal for the Starving
Millions of China
A public meeting will be held in the Anglican Church
lull tomorrow (Sunday) evening at 8.30 o'clock, to
lonslder the best steps lo be taken by Cumberland towards
bringing help to Ihe starving millions in China. His
Worship Mayor MacDonald will occupy the chair.
Tlio call from tills famine-stricken district In China
should appeal particularly to Canadians, as it comes under
the jurisdiction of Canadian Missions. It is hoped that all
who can attend Uiis meeting will do so. Be ready to
respond to tlie appeal when it reaches you. The need Is
tremendous and urgent.
Below is printed part of tlie appeal sent out by the China
Famine Relief Committee, representing the Canadian
Foreign .Mission Boards:
The Situation.
North China is in tlie relentless grip of one of the worst
famines of the last thirty years. Conditions are appalling.
From thirty to fifty millions in the live provinces of Hoiian,
shansi, Shantung, Bliensi and Chili are facing starvation.
The failure of rain for twelve months has meant the total
failure of two harvests.
Terrible distress prevails. Thousands have already died.
Hundreds aro dying every day. Many are seeking to live
on leaves and bark. Authenticated cases are reported of
parents killing tlieir children rather than see them starve,
and then in despair taking their own lives.
Recent rains have made possible the sowing of fields,
which givo promise of a harvest next June. But the intervening mouths! The present distress, keen as it is, is
but a suggestion of tlie awful agony through which North
China must pass before the winter is over unless relief
on a large scale Is forthcoming.
Moving Appeals From Mnny Sources.
Before making any appeal the China Famine Relief Committee has made the fullest enquiry regarding the situation.
From every source cumulative evidence has come of the
magnitude and severity of the famine and tlle urgent need
of immediate relief.
From their Missions in Honon, our two Canadian Mission
Boards, having work in the affected area, are receiving
urgent appeals for help.
The Honan Presbytery cables: "The famine has realized
our worst fears.   Funds for relief urgently needed."
The Anglican Missionaries cable: "Great distress. Relief
needed Immediately.
The secretary of tlie China Continuation Committee cables
from Shanghai to the Canadian Committee that the famine
is very severe and that help is urgently needed to prevent
great loss of life.
A cable from Bishop Lewis, of the Methodist Episcopal
Mission, Peking, states that the famine is desperate, that
already there ore a thousand deaths daily, and conditions
getting worse.
The Government of China has sent the following message
to the Chinese Consul-General at Ottawa: "Over one
hundred thousand localities are affected: millions of
destitute and dying of famine. Relief fund is urgently
needed."
What Is llelng Done.
The Chinese, aided by the foreign residents, are doing
wliat they can, but the disaster is of such magnitude that
they cannot cope with it alone. In Honan a joint relief
committee of Chinese and foreigners has been formed, with
Rev. G. E. Simmons of the Canadian Anglican Mission as
Foreign Treasurer, and Rev. H. M. Harris of the American
Southern Baptist .Mission as Foreign Secretary.
Shanghai alone has raised $1,600,000 for relief and placed
an objective of $3,000,000.
The President of the United States has issued a national
appeal and appointed a nation-wide committee to carry
forward a great national relief movement as speedily as
possible.
Your Help Needed,
Every humanitarian and Christian instinct demands that
Canada help and help quickly. The committee representing
the Canadian Foreign Mission Boards—Anglican, Baptist,
Congregational, Methodist and Presbyterian—appeal to all
Canadians to help meet this appalling need. Already fifty
thousand dollars have been cabled to China. Hundreds of
thOUBands are needed.
"SOCKLESS JERRY"
The fact that Miss Alice M. Iti.bcrt-
boii, who will be the second woman
ever elected to congress, lias announced that she has never worn anything but cotton stockings and does
not intend to Indulge herself In the
luxury of silk hosiery, brings to mind
that it was just. 30 years ugo that a
man from Kansas was elected to serve
In the house of representatives bo-
cause he had made the issue in Ills
campaign that ho was too poor to wear
socks.
That individual was Jerry Simpson
ot Medicine Lodge, who was elected on
the People's party ticket. He was
dubbed '.'Bookless Jerry."
Shortly after Simpson entered upon
his duties as congressman from the
Sunflower state, Mrs. Charlotte Smith,,
well known In Washington because of
the fact that she championed the cause
of women wage earners through a
weekly newspaper she published In
thnt city, got into n confab with the
member from Kansas.
Mrs. Smith, who was as bright ns
she was good looking, glanced at the
feet of tlie People's party representative and snid: "By the way, Mr. Simpson, I wish you would pull up your
trousers and let me see if It is really
true, ns reported in thc public prints,
that you do not wear socks."
"I will," quickly answered the Medicine Lodge man, "if you will then lie
kind enough to lift up your dress so
that nil of us here in this corridor—
men nnd women both—enn see wliat
kind of stockings, if any, you as the
friend of working women can afford to
wear In times like these."
Mrs. Smith was so taken by surprise
that she blushed greatly and Instantly
took to her heels, much to the amusement of the bystanders,   if "Sookless
Jerry" were alive now he would not
even have to strain his eyes iu walk-
lug through the capitol corridors to
find out what sort of stockings ("if
any") the women are wearing.—Ore-
gonlan,
Kitty, aged four, had been naughty,
and her father bad had to administer
vigorous correction before going to
business, That an impression had
been made was appnrent in the evening. Kitty called upstairs witli frigid
politeness:
".Mother, your husband's homo."
"So you had troublo locating me,"
<aid the stranger to tlie old darky, as
he alighted at the country station.
'Didn't your master give you a description of me?"
"Yas, marsa, but thar's so many
gemmen wlf red noses comin on dat
dar train."

The Kind of Man She'd Marry.
She was a pretty and ambitious girl,
and had studied the matrimonial problem to" a nicety.
"Yes, I suppose I shall wed eventually," she said; "but the only kind of
masculine nuisance that will suit me
must be tall and dark, with classical
features. He must be brave, yet gentle, withal he must be strong—a lion
amongst men, but a knight amongst
ladies."
That evening a bow-legged, lath-
framed youth, wearing check trousers,
and smoking a coffln-nail cigarette
that smelt worse than a burning boot,
rattled on the verandah with a two-bit
walking-stick, and the girl knocked
four tumblers and a cut-glass dish off
tlie sideboard In her haste to get to
him.
Some men are truthful at all times—
except when their wives ask for money.
At a wedding recently when the
minister asked the bride, "Wilt thou
have this man to be thy wedded husband?" she, with a modesty whlcb lent
her beauty an additional grace, replied
"If you please!"
A Kentucky man arrested on the
charge of marrying his mother-in-law
has it on the authorities by the fact
that his wife was divorced and the relation no longer existed!

Police Commissioners hold Final Meeting
The final meeting of the 1920 Board

Worship Mayor MacDonald was in the
chair, Commissioners Maxwell and
Parnham being present, as well as
the city clerk and chief of police.
The annual report of Chief of Police
Bunbury was read and after discussion
was adopted. The commissioners
agreed with the request of the chief of
police that the City Council should
pay a sum monthly to supplement the
amount given by the storekeepers and
others for the pay of night watchman.
It was pointed out that the watchman
also did quite a bit of work at the
City Hall.
On the motion of Com. Parnham,
seconded by Com. Maxwell, a motion
was adopted recommending tbe City
Council to pay the sum of $20 monthly
to the night watchman.
Report of Chief of Police.
The report of the chief of police, ln
part, Is as follows:

There has been some trouble in connection with street lighting, owing for
the most part to faulty mechanism of
the time clock and fuses burning out.
Steps have been taken to remedy this
matter.
I would suggest that the sale aud use
of fire-crackers be forbidden within
the city limits, as it is a dangerous
practice and may lead to a serious fire.
There has been a considerable
amount of intoxicating liquor consumed in town, as apparent by the
number of men who have been seen
under the Influence of liquor, but not
to such an extent as would justify
an arrest or secure a conviction, being
drunk not being an offence under the
statutes. Thft is a condition that
probably obtains in every city, but is,
of course, more apparent in smaller
communities, and ls not to be wondered at under existing laws. One bas
only to notice the persistent advertising by outside liquor firms and the
very large proportion of intoxicating
liquor arriving in town through the
express office to realize the fact that
lt is somewhat surprising that there
ls no more Intoxication ln town than
at present. This ls a condition that
may be altered under Government
Control.
There has been no serious crime in
the city during the past year, a matter for which we are to be thankful, in
view of tbe apparent crime wave, of
which the papers are full. More especially does this refer to burglaries,
and also taking into consideration the
fact that the city is ln darkness after
midnight. In my opinion the employment of a night watchman from midnight to daylight assists greatly In the
matter, and under this heading 1
would point out that Mr. R. Coe, Sr.,
has made an efficient night watchman,
which will be corroborated by a good
many of the business men, and as his
small salary of $60 a month Is entirely
subscribed by the business men on
Dunsmuir Avenue, and one or two
others, and as his duties often con
slst in the safe-keeping of prisoners
confined ln the city goal and otber
small duties for the city, I would respectfully urge that an addition be
made to his salary by the authorities.
I have always found him most reliable
and faithful to his duties. I do not
think this suggestion is unreasonable,
more especially considering the fact
that our neighboring municipality of
Courtenay employs two fully experienced police officers, one drawing $145
and the other $125 a month, though
having only two saloons against our
five.
The general conduct has been good,
there being very little disturbance.
What disturbance there has been was
mostly from outside parties coming into town on joy-rides, and I have used
every effort to suppress it. I take this
opportunity to thank thc citizens for
the attention tliey have paid when 1
have found it necessary to issue warnings.
The commissioners I feel sure will
realize tlie difficulties encountered by
a police officer who works withoul
assistance, whose movements are carefully watched by tlie less law-abiding
element, aud from whom all infractions ure carefully bidden ns far as
possible. It is a slmplo matter for
citizens to be cognizant of a good deal
that Is going on that should not be,
and some complain to tiie authorities
of matters within their knowledge, but
I have uot yet found one who would
come out iu the open and give evidence as would Warrant me In taking
action.
It is almost unnecessary to state
that without tlie considerate support
and ndvtcc of tlie commissioners no
police officer can do his duty, and such
consideration I have always experienced from your commission, so that,
If my efforts to preserve law and order
are not acceptable to yourselves and
the general public the fault must be
entirely mine.
I would conclude this report by saying that I believe honestly that the
conduct of this city will compare favorably with any other city of its size,
and by this 1 do not wish to Infer that
such conditions are due to any particular efforts on my part, but to tbe citizens themselves, for whose forbearance and good sense I have to be
thankful.
I have the honor to remain, gentlemen,
Yours obediently,
C. J. BUNBURY,
Chief of Police.
Nu. 4 MINE SURFACE TEAM
PUTS CUMBERLAND ON THK
MAP IN FIRST AID WORK
Six months ago A. J. Taylor organized what Is known today as No. 4
Mine Surface Team, and he has every
reason to be proud of thc results which
his team has accomplished. It Is not
necessary to remind the public of
Cumberland that this newly organized
team, after being together seven weeks,
won the Coulson Cup at the Safety
First Association meet held at Ladysmith in September last, and in the
open competition made a tic with Nanaimo for lirst place. <
The percentage for tlie Coulson Cup
was 08, and in the open competition,
97 per cent. The open competition
included teams from the American
side.
Mr. Taylor's aggregation received
very warm praise from the different
judges for tlieir oflicient method of
applying first aid.
Entering the learn for flic Canadian
Championship was tlie next step, aud
after a very short practice managed
to secure the honors for this district,
and also won in Ihe series of tests that
took place afterwards. After all otlier
teams in B. C. had run off their tests
Cumberland No. 4 Mine Surface team
and Barton's team of Nanaimo were
the two highest in the province.
These two teams then went up
against the other teams from every
province for the Coderre Cup. winning
lirst and second places, and bringing
the honors to British Columbia.
Cumberland is more than proud to
know that it has a team which is
second only lu all Canada, and oilers
to A. J. Taylor and his team heartiest
congratulations.

One of America's most famous professional magicians and Blight-of-hand
performers tells this one on himself:
"I was coming up from San Francisco to Chicago, and on tiie train
were three men who looked like professional gamblers. Tliey roped me
into n poker game against my protests and after I bad told tbem that so
far as 1 knew there was no card trick
which I could not perform. It wns a
no-limit game and bit? sums changed
hands rapidly. I hail a roll or aboul

cheating. I snid nothing. I hud been
playing straight, bul thereafter I
showed no mercy, and when the gaum
stroke up I had doubled iny money—or
so 1 thought till the next dny when I
reached Chicago and tried to deposit
it in a bank. Then I round out that I
had not been playing with professional

The members of the choir were practising tlie well known anthem, "As

The rendering ol the open stages was
apparently not quite to the satisfaction of the gentleman who wielded tho

therefore, to tender some advice to the

splendid Work of Shepherd in Goal
For South  Wellington  Spoiled
Cumberland's Chances
The championship of the Uppei
Island Football League has still a
be determined, Cumberland and
South Wellington battled for two
bourn on New Year's day to settle
the issue bul without avail. Hvei
with llie extra halt' hour's play then
was uo scoro, and one of ibe hardest
fought games ever played on a local
Held ended in a goalless draw.
This facl alone will Indicate bow
closely tbe two teams wero matched
On tho (lay's play there was notbing
to choose between them, and all tit
way through it looked t nil the team
tlmt   got   tbe   first   goal, would   win
Tbe field wus n ot only very slippery, but was also ve ry soft and
made the going very heavy, Tin
rirst condition militated against accurate shooting and the sei-und tended to slow up the game whil- naturally il had its effect upon tho players Both teams were played completely out when the final whistle
sounded, but let it be said that right
until the last toot both teams strove
desperately to score.
Comparing tbe two teams it may
be said that at times Cumberland
showed thc best form In, the Held.
On the other band South Wellington
bad by far tlie best of the opportunities to score Cumberland would
probably have scored at least twic*
with any other goalkeeper than Shepherd, while In spite of repeated openings Clark never had a really difficult shot to handle from the South
Wellington forwards. For tho ret>l
the defence of both teams was always
reliable. Stobbart played a sterling
game at centre half, and Strang wa.
at bis best at right full back.
Hard Game Well Handled
The game was handled by Referee
Locke of Victoria and his decisions
were satisfactory to both players and
spectators alike. Considering the
issue at slake and the keen rivalry
between the two teams the game
was remarkably free from fouls.
There were few penalties but they
were mostly for offside and handling,
and altogether it was a line clean
hard fought game.
Cumberland won the toss aud
from the kick-off secured possession
ot tbe ball and carried tbe game to
the South Wellington goal, where
Shepherd cleared and play was transferred to centre field. Here Cumberland outside right was put out
for a few minutes by being struck
squarely in the face by a, kicked ball.
South Wellington took the aggressive from the kick off ami carried
tbe ball into the enemy goal mouth
but Clarke relieved and play for a
time ebbed up and down tbe field,
James taking a hard drive at the
goal which Shepherd saved by dropping to bis knees. After several minutes of midlield play the situation
again became serious for South Wellington when the ball was carried
right into tbe South Wellington goal
mouth, James being called up for
off-side, From the free kick South
Wellington took the upper band and
had the best of the game for the next
four minutes, the forwards combining in a rush on tbe enemy goal
which proved unsuccessful, tbe ball
going by. End to end play followed

Some of the questions Tommie asks
papa:   "What  does  a  jelly-fish  eat
"Why do hens lay eggs?"   "How far
can a cat spit?"
during the entire  game.  Cumberland
was now forced to concede n comer,
the kick not being improved and the
bull   was  transferred  to  centre  field
jnly to be returned to the Cumber-
laud  goal,  Clarke  dropping   on   the
phere caught Craig with his heel as
lie  South   Wellington   forward   rush
d   over   the    prostrate   Cumberland
goalie   resulting   in  Craig  being  put
out of the play for the remainder of
Uie game.
Extra Period,
The half hour over time was noted
for the stubborn nature of the play.
Both teams tried desperately to
score the winning goal, both failing
in the attempt although the honors of
the day were with Cumberland.
The defences of both teams
played reliable games, the fact of no
goals being scored being due in a
considerable measure to the slippery
nature of the ground which made accurate shooting a matetr of extreme
difficulty.
