Cumberland Orchestral Society.
Our readers will be pleased to learn
that the organization of the Cumberland Orchestral Society Is now an
accomplished fact, and we may look
forward with pleasureable anticipation to a series of orchestral concerts
which will do much to brighten the
social life of our city during the coming winter season.
The present membership Is 17 Including a number of ladles, and the
Instrumentation already Includes ten
violins, two clarinets, first and second
cornets, 'cello, bass and piano,  ,
The first reheasal was held on Friday last at the residence of Mrs.
Oliver, R.A.M., and the conductor, Mr.
A. J. Merry, expressed his pleasure at
the excellent showing made by the
members. It is considered necessary
to acquire the use ot a suitable hall
In a central position for the convenience of members attending rehearsals. In a community such as
this, there is no doubt a considerable
amount of Intent talent lying dormant,
and indies and gentlemen possessing
orchestral Instruments and wishing to
become members of the society, are
urged to communicate with Dr. R. P.
Christie, who Is acting as secretary
pro tern, or with the conductor, Mr.
Merry, at the earliest possible moment, as It ls Intended to arrange an
orchestral concert as soon as possible
for the purpose of raising funds for
the purchaae of certain Instruments
and music.
We understand the following Instruments are urgently required to complete the ensemble and proper balance of the orchestra, viz.: Violins,
viola, 'cello, string bass, oboe, French
horn, flute (D), basson.
As several young players who are
not yet efficient on their Instruments
have expressed a desire to Join the
orchestra as soon as possible, the
conductor, Mr. Merry, will arrange to
have an elementary class should a
sufficient number of such players be
forthcoming.

THK LABOUR-VETERAN QUERY'
(Addressed to the Individual members
of tlie House of Commons).
"Considerable uneasiness exists
among the organizations; represented
by the undersigned, as to the Intention of Parliament with regard to the
question of unemployment. Present
Indications compel the conclusion
thai serious unemployment will be
inevitable during next winter. The
general opinion prevails that steps
should now be taken to institute effective measures, apart from provision for doles,
"Organized labour, together with
organized ex-service men, and other
Interests, have offered many constructive suggestions, with regard to this
question. At the request of The
Honourable the Minister of Labour,
the Employment Service Council of
Canada, representative of all nationally organized Interests, prepared
a series of recommendations on the
subject. Moreover, the House of
Commons, during the present session,
adopted a resolution declaring unemployment a Federal responsibility.
"Because of the effects experienced
by the organizations represented hereunder from this situation, your response to the following question is
solicited:
"Do   you   consider   tbat   the
House of Commons should deal
with the question of unemployment during tbe present session?"
"Through the courtesy of The Ottawa Citizen, The Canadian Congress
Journal    (the  olllcial   organ of The
Trades and Labour Congress of Canada), and THE VETERAN, arrangements have been made for publication
of your reply,   ft is confidently antl
clpated that your frank statement In
thei matter will do much  to make

given the needs of the unemployed by
members of the House of Commons.

Mall Service Better.
The Dominion Government bas improved the mail service between Al-
liernl and the West Coast.
A resolution was adopted requesting more adequate facilities for ferrying between Vancouver and Nanaimo,
and between Victoria and Port Angeles. This matter was given due
consideration by our executive, and
through the efforts of the Victoria and
Island Publicity Bureau a new connection between Vancouver Island
and the Mainland waB established. An
automobile ferry Ib now being operated between Anacortes and Sidney.
The directors of tho Victoria and
Island Publicity Bureau have now
proven that the lack of adequate
transportation facilities for automobile owners has been a serious handicap to the organizations whlcb bave
been endeavoring to attract tourists.
Two boats are now being operated
each day on this new run. During
the month of July one of these two
boats alone carried 730 automobiles,
7 motorcycles and 3,252 passengers,
proving the popularity of the run.
Since the operation this one connection has brought over 1,000 automobiles to the Island, and almost every
section of the Island is securing beneficial results. The Canadian Pacific
Coast Steamship Company has Increased Its Nanaimo service by operating the Charmer between Vancouver and Nanaimo on Saturdays and
Mondays. This boat carries a large
number of cars and Is so constructed
that limousines and closed cars can
be accommodated.
Extend Highway.
There are several other Important
matters In regard to which no action
has yet been taken, as follows:;
(1) Extension of the Island Highway into tbe Sayward District and
the construction of a road of ths
Canadian Highway to Long Beach' on
the West Coast. I understand that
a part of the work on this Long
Beach connection Is new being carried out. The settlers of the Sayward
District have been quite active ln
this matter and the Victoria organization litis co-operated with them by
appearing before the Provincial Government.
(2) The importance of construction
of a loud to Campbell River Falls.
C<) The establishment of facilities
fur assembling cargo on the Outer
Wharves at Victoria. Quite recently
the Canadian National Railway has
opened one of these docks and it appears to lie tlicirlntentloii to develop
business and make use of these
whui ves  linmediaely.
|4| The Installation of a ferry service between Mill Bay, Salt Spring
Island and Saanich Peninsula. This
work Is now well under way and it
ls quite likely that an Important announcement will be made before the
end of the year thnt services will be
commenced.
ttif Amendment to the Immigration
laws, further restricting the admission of Orientals Into British Columbia.
(i!) Assurance of permanent pres-
ctsntlon of the Cameron Lake timber
area, a scenic attraction.
At this time I would like to briefly
mention some of the developments

COMMUNICATION.
To the Editor of The islander:
Sir,—As a resident of Cumberland
fnr twenty years, I have read witli a
good deal oi Interest tlle reminiscences Which you have published of this
city, dating buck to Its earliest history, and It would not perhaps be o(ut
of place to draw u comparison of the
conditions liinl existed at that time
compared with tiie present. I.ong ngo
the residents Immediately adjacent to
Cumberland were not ouly disposed.
but anxious, to become citizens and
readily purchased n city lot and put
up n residence und mude their home
with us; tliey were wilting nnd did
pay more for n lot thnn they are offering at to-iiny; in fnct, It seems to mn
that vacant lots arc Rolng begging.
Houses huve been and are still going
up like mushrooms, In every direction, Immediately outside the City
boundary. Only quite recently we
have seen an up-to-date business concern erected and completed right up
against our City boundary. There
must lie something "rotten ln tho
State of Denmark," to use a slang expression, when conditions like this
prevail. I have come to the conclusion- thnt there must be some good
and sufficient reason why this City is
deprived of so muny would-be citizens
and boosterB for this otlierwiso pro-
presBivc city. I Intend, with your kind
permission, In the next Issue of your
valuable paper .to give what I taluk
is partly, if Hot wholly, the cause of
this unfortunate state of affairs.
Yours truly.

I am unable to quote the approximate value of the llshing production
on Vancouver Island alone, all hough
the Dominion Government statistics
nhow that ln 1921 tin: output of our
fisheries in the who|e province was
over 8,000,000 less than in 1920.

In the whole province wa ■ $7,500,000,
while the nurhbor of employees wns
10,623. In the tish canning und cluing business the capital invested ln
the province wns $12,450,000, while
the number of employee:! was 4,471.
These aro tho Provincial statistic
and it Is not possible to state wliat
proportion belongs to Vancouver Island. ,
The Dominion Government is operating three fish hatcheries on Vancouver Island, which had nn output
during the current season of over
14,000,000. Of tills number 4,490.0*00
were distributed ns eggs, 8,953,000 ss
fry in the free swimming stage, and
the balance of 047,000 are being fed
in retaining ponds and will bo
liberated after they have attained a
length of from 3 to 2% niches.
The fact that fishing, being one nt
our chief Industries, is on the decrease would possibly indicate tiint
more efforts bo made to protect tlie
industry. Possibly by having a closed
season or adopting other legislation
before tho llsh are exterminated.
During the year tlio Provincial
Government lias expended JC4.885 on
roads in tlie Alberni district, which
takes, care ot 586 miles and 305 miles

Ten o'clock Saturday morning found
the Association members in full session at the <i_W. V. A. Hall, when the
Credentials Committee reports were
passed. Mr. Coburn, chnirman of the
Kesoluiinu Committee, presented the
following resolutions to the meeting,
presided over by tlie president, Mr.
George I, Warren:
1.—That the Associated Boards of
Trade of Vancouver Island affiliate
.villi the Associated Boards of Trade
of B. C, thus enlnrgiug the scope of
,e'k to be accomplished for the advancement of trade and better business conditions throughout the province.
2, That the proposal to urge   npon
the Provincial Government the Im-
mcdiiite completion of the island
Highway to und through the sayward
Vnlley nnd district, be postponed un-
II euoh time when funds nre nvnll-
ible; one member suggesting roads
In the valley rather than road3 into
md out of as a preliminary measure.
3.—Tlio "deadly and destructive use
if salmon eggs" as a means of des-
roylng ihe sportive trout once so
groat a feulure of our most attractive
and world-known rivers, was the
■■aison d' etre for n strongly-worded
,-esolution to the Government asking
tor an Aet to make the use and sale
of salmon eggs Illegal. Mr. Prevost,
of Duncan, spoke most feelingly on
ilie depletion of this asset to all sport-
.ovlng British Columbians — river
troul—and referred to the "cars ot
lish hogs" who swarm along our now
dusty roads to the best llshing
grounds, using salmon eggs ns ball to
haul in hundreds of pounds of de-
ectable fish which they wasted or
threw away.
4.—A resolution to request the Government to restore the discount on
payment of taxes as obtained previously in British Columbia, mot with
he general approval of the members
if the Associated Boards as affording
letter facilities to the tax-payer b7
granting an extension of time for
'payment nr a rebate to those who are
ilile to take advantage ot the dls-
•nunt hitherto allowed.
Bi—The recent holocaust brought
forth nn nppenl to tlie Government in
,he form of n resolution for greater
protection from foreBt llreB and the
careful seeding down of burnt areas
liefore obnoxious weeds were allowed
to establish themselves. Reforestra-
tion being strongly urged by able
ipeakers. In a most exhilirnting
ipeech Mr. A, W.. Neill, M.P., drew
forth admiration and applause for his
,'xplanation of his proposed "Act" to
leal with our provincial bugbear, the
Oriental question. This In reply to
iho rending of no less than three
strongly worded resolutions dealing
with the matter. Ho quoted from the
"New Zealand Emigration Act,"
which lie stated must surely be adopted sooner or later in part or in to.to
hy all the self-governing colonies of
the Empire. In eloquent measures
he explained liow the national pride
of the people of the Far East precluded legislation thnt could be described as discriminative; that registration of Orientnls was an Imperative
measure to be ndopted; that naturalization of the Oriental should cease,
and that as Japan allows aliens to
acquire no vested rights in property,
we too should mako the acquisition of
property impossible for the Oriental.
The Oriental In large numbers In our
midst does not enhance the value -ot
our citizenship, but rather lowers the
average standard of civilization, being largely responsible for our present surplus nf unemployed. In seconding this resolution, Mr. Thomas
Graham suggested a most valuable
solution for the restriction of Oriental
Influx by making the sanitary and
healthy conditions of living of tho
white population a standard that all
residents of B. C. would be compelled
to live up to; Orictals included.
8.—A resolution calling for the protection of our scenic highways and
by-ways from the debasing smirches
or hideous signboards, brought forth
an almost unanimous disapproval of
the desecration of sucli spots as Plumpers Pass and the most picturesque
points in our Island highway. The
question arose, however, of the right
of the individual owner to show his
had taste hy erecting advertising signs
and billboards where tourists and
nature lovers foregather to admire the
beauty ot our woods and. views of
our islands and the sea.
9. That the Associated Boards of
Trade of Vancouver Island have the
interests ot the smnller Industries at
heart was shown by a resolution to
nppenl to tlie Government for an
assembly point, nt tlio Ogden Point

overseas ports for those Bmaller and
inland mills who have no assembly

Genoa Bny, Chemninus hnrbor and

10. A friendly tilt took place on the
reading ot a resolution for the fostering and furtherance of farming lu the
Comox-Courtenay district, and the
proposal for an experimental farm ln
this section of the Island. The delegates from Comox-Courtenay and Syd
ney-Saanich districts holding diverse
views of the relative Importance of
their habitat, this dtBtrlct really
giving a better Idea of the possibility
of our basic industry and Us success
on the Island than the smaller and
more southern and olive-growing (?)
section to the south.
Utility versus sentimentality in regard to uor standing timber adjacent
to the Island highway, and the beautiful falls at Campbell River called
forth much discussion, and a resolution urging the Provincial Govern
ment to prevent the timber devasta
Hon, was read by Mr. Coburnr~Com
parlBons between our useful and or
namental water-power and the vastly
greater Niagara Falls failed to elicit
the sentimental preservation of the
purely scenic value of the famous'
tails. Development of our resources
spelllng^einployment, whereas preservation spells unlimited extension of
our already vast public park area,
with only benefit to the tourist and
intermittent sport-seeker in the Interior. It was urged that development of our water power would in
no wise spoil the beauties of the
Campbell River district, and that nature would, with man's scieulilic assistance, reforrest those sections depleted of useful and merchantable
timber, and thus aftord more Immediate industry without unduly robbing the Island of all its sceulc attractions.
A resolution requesting the residence of the recently appointed junior
Judge in the district where his Jurisdiction extends, brought out a divergence of opinion as to where the
Judge does reside and whether the
northerly or southerly portion of this
Nanaimo county is most in need of
a resident Justice, lt was shewn that
the number of Court cases requiring
the presence of a Judge were almost
evenly divided between the district
north of Xanainio and that to the
south. This resolution was referred
back to the Courtenay Board ot Trade
tor further information.
The proposal for a duty ou fuel oil
to stimulate the coai industry, wus
perhaps from a local point of view,
the most important mattor discussed
at the convention, Mr. Thos. Graham
explained the reasons tor the resolution asking the Government to Impose
this duty. He stated that millions of
dollars left British Columbia yearly
for the purchase of fuel oil that 14
spent for coal would double the output of this valuable industry In the
province, and of course double the
payrolls and give steady employment
to twice the number of men now at
work. At present but 10,000 to 15,000
are employed In the coal niineB In
B. C. A duty on fuel oil would mean
an Increase of 100 per cent ln the
general business of the province, and
every other industry besides that ot
coal production would feel the benefit. The whole meeting endorsed this
resolution, which wns as follows:
Resolution on Fuel Oil.
Whereas   despite   the   Increase   ot
population   and   industrial   development of the Province of British Co
lumbia during tlio past twelve years,
ihe production of coal 111 tlie province
during that period lias retrograded,
being approximately 500,000 tons per
year less for the years 1920 and 1921
than it wan In 1910, and whereas coal
is a basic industry and essential to
the industrial development of the
province, it is highly essential that
the coal Industry should not only step,
but keep ahead of the industrial progress of the province, and whereas we
are yearly importing 4,320,000 barrels
of crude fuel oil Into the Province of
British Columbia, and this oil ls displacing coal equal to the present annual commercial production of coal on
Vancouver Island, and whereas tbls
fuel oil ts taking $1,000,000 per month
out of the province of British Columbia, whilst the coal mines of Vancouver Island are working only one-half
their present capacity, and whereas
this amount of money spent in British
Columbia would furnish not only
steady employment to the men now
employed in the coal Industry, but
#iftld give employment to many more
thousands of men, and whereas no
nation can hope to be industrially
great that is dependent upon another
cars and their occupants.
A resolution requiring local Boards
of Trade to give 30 days' notice of
resolutions to be brought before the
Associated Boards of Trade, was
moved by the Alberni Board of Trade
and adopted. Appreciating the excellent work of the Publicity Bureau tn
Victoria, which is under the wing of
tlie Victoria Chamber of Commerce,
the Associated Boards ot* Trade members resolved to co-oporate with the
Publioity Board in tho issuance of a
special pamphlet enlarging on the opportunities and attractions of Vancouver [Bland. Tills is tin important

A vote of thanks to tlie Cumberland
Board of Trade for their kind hospitality and support, to which tlie
greater success of the Convention
owes so much, was voted by acclamation. In reply, Mr. Sutherland, the
local president, expressed most gratifying views of wliat Victoria, its
Board of Trade and publicity campaigns had done tor the up-lsland
points, and avowed the determination
of tlie members of Cumberland Board
of Trade to "back up Victoria every

Considerable comment was expressed re the meagre passenger steamer
service to the Island, it being stated
the Publicity Board ond Vancouver ls-
Victorla Chamber of Commerce and
land Development League, but also as
an ardent booster for everything for
the welfare of business and sports In
the province, and especially on Vancouver Island.
The re-election of Mr. Clinton, as

On tlie Invitation of Mr. Coburn,

Before the convention adjourned,
Mr. Thomas Graham graciously extended nu invitation to the delegntes

SATURDAY, -AUGUST  12th, 1922
Question of Place of Residence
of Junior Judge of Nanaimo
County.
For some years past the residents
of the northern part of the county of
Nanaimo pressed tlle Government to
appoint a second or junior judge for
that   county,    basing   tlieir   request,
inter alla, »V°U th<i tact tlmt the
county of Nanaimo, which includes
the whole of Vaucouver Island lying
to the north ot au imaginary line
drawn from a point on the weBt shore
of Saanich Inlet to the west const of
Vancouver island, was too extensive
for one judge to handle. Eventually
Mr. 3. C. Mcintosh, of Victoria, was
appointed second or junior judge to
the Nanaimo county, but instead of
his residing in the northern part of
the county in question, lie persists in
residing at Oak Bay, which Is In Victoria county and not in the Nanaimo
county as some seem to think; Oak
Bay is, by the way, some 140 miles
from Cumberland.
As matters stand at present the
southern part oi the Nanaimo county
has a resident judge at Nanaimo City
—70 miles from here,—and ls also
served by Judge Mcintosh, giving thnt
part of the county which has a double
train service, good roads, and the distances between villages and towns
nothing to speak of compared to conditions here, two judges; and leaving
the northern part of the county,
■which for a considerable part of the
year has but three trains per week,
Tvlthout a resident judge.
That Judge Mcintosh Ib bound by
law to reside in tlie county for which
he was appointed, is clearly indicated
by Section 62 of the "County Courts
Act" of British Columbia, which provides that "EACH COUNTY COURT
JUDGE SHALL RESIDE WITHIN
HIS COUNTY," and by Section 28 ot
the "Judges' Act" of the Dominion of
Canada, which provides that a county
judge shall hold office during good behavior AND HIS RESIDENCE within
the county or union of counties for
which the court is established, and
both of the Acts In question also provide that the word "Judge" shall Include "Junior Judge."
The matter in question was brought
up on the Cth of this month before
tlie annual meeting of the Associated
Boards of Trade of Vancouver Island,
nt which meeting delegates representing nine different Boards of Trade of
'the /Island were present, and after
careful consideration n resolution was
passed asking the Government to see
that Judge Mcintosh obeyed the law
by way of residing within his county,
and further asked that the Act be
amended to force him to live In this
part of the county, or else to divide
the county into two separate counties
by way of making a new county running from near Alberni to the north
end of the Island.

OUR BOYS.
No more important social work
exists to-day than the splendid movement taking place almost all over the
whole of the Dominion known as "A
better time for our boys," which
churches of every denomination,
lodges and good-fellowship and bro-
herliood organizations are uniting
and co-operating to forward in so
exemplary a manner. In this good
work tiie Y. M. C. A., the Rotary Clubs
and other bodies in every large city
are endeavouring to uplift, Instruct
and amuse the young generation thai
is so rapidly growing up to manhood,
preparing our boys to lit themselves
physically, mentally and spiritually
for their lite work; Instilling ambition, love of work, sportmanshlp ln
play and a new vigor in all healthy,
clean, out-of-door life, and geying behind for a better time for the 'teen-age
boy; to help the boy who needs lt,
drawing no Hue between rich and
poor, doing something worth while for
the comlng-on race that will ln a few
years be taking our places ln the
world.
Cumberland ls not unlike other
smaller communities In that lt has Its
full quota of fulsome, healthy young
lads, with but meagre means of recreation aud health-giving facilities
for camping and using the spare
hours of school term and the long
days of holiday time to the very best
advantage. Also Cumberland hns a
great number of men—fathers and
brothers of our boys who are greatly
interested In this very question, but
who have not yet grasped the great
idea of getting together on this most
important work and organizing to get
behind for a better time for onr boys.
Let's get busy rlgbt now, while the
'water's flue—come ou ln." The pro
prletor of this paper has this subject
,'ery much at heart, and he means to
tack It up; himself and The Islander
will do ail in their power to consols-

date   the efforts of  every   one   in
terested in this movement.
Kamloops, B. C, has a very lively
up-to-date Rotary Club, and also
uoasts of a Junior Brotherhood, and
these two organizations are combining
to form the personnel of a new executive committee with the one and
only object of providing a programme
tne various churches and every other
public body ln the city. Recently
of boys' work, with the aBeittance ot
they had a very enthusiastic meeting
and are hot on the trail of a construe
',ive polii^y for an Instructive and
pleasant year's program of work and
play for their boys. Can't we here ln
Cumberland do the same? We can,
and we will.
It Is a tradegy In the life of a boy
who Ib not going to camp when his
companions are going. It ls a great
thing for all boys ln one community
ies for which the Court is established.

British Columbia logging camps will
operate for a longer period this year
than has been the case for many
years, according to Mr. O. O. Johnson,
president of the B. C. Loggers' Association. This is due to the fact that
bo many camps have lost time this
summer through danger of fires. The
newB will be welcomed by many hundreds of woodsmen who have been
out of work this year during the
season when they usually made their
year's stake. "Many camps now shut
preparing to resume operations at an
early date," Bald Mr, Johnson.

Vancouver-made Product is put to acid test on most difficult
foreign markets in the world, and comes off with flying colors.*
Cascade Beer has made good
in India. This is the most trying climate in the World, and yet
Cascade Beer kept there for
more than a year had the same
pleasant tang and was just as
fresh and pleasing to the taste
as when it left the Vancouver
Breweries.
There is no less an authority
for this than H. A. Chisholm,
trade commissioner for the Dominion Government. Writing
to the Commercial Intelligence
Journal, published by the Canadian Government, under date
of May 13, this year, Mr. Chisholm says in part:
"The last consignment reaching Calcutta is said to have been
a shipment - of 'Cascade' from
Vancouver, landed in March,
1921. i
"It speaks well of this brand
of Canadian Beer that, although
it has been in store for over a
year in one of the most trying
climates in the world, its quality
has not deteriorated and none of
it has gone bad. Its 'crown
caps' seem to have protected the
contents better than corks have
the German lagers. The writer
was informed that this brand of
Canadian Beer, although not as
heavy as English Ale, produced
a pleasant stimulating effect on
the stomach that German lagers
could not produce. According to
many informants, this particular quality in Canadian Beer is
just what is demanded in the
tropics."
Can there-be a better endorsement   than   this   for   a   hot-
weather drink?   Here is Cas-
I cade—a   Vancouver-made   pro-
jduct—that can be shipped to
j India, held for more than a year,
I and when opened prove to be
. more palatable and better adapted for a tropical beverage than
beer   manufactured   right   in
'India or imported from other
I famous breweries of the world.

NOTICE
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY ALL WASTE OP WATER MUST STOP.
Owing to the prolonged dry weather we find that it is necessary to restrict the use of
water, as if we allow the present enormous consumption to continue the town may, in the event
of no rainfall for the next two months, be faced with a water famine.
In YOUR interests and for the protection of YOUR property in the event of a, fire, we
find it necessary to bring into effect immediately the following regulations:—
(1).
HOUR ONLY-
Water must not be used for sprinkling or irrigating purposes except-
-from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.
-FOR ONE
(2). The practice of using water for the purpose of watering sidewalks, streets, etc.,
must cease. Persons using water for these purposes are liable to have their services disconnected until such time as we can install a meter on their supply.
(3). Leaking taps, toilets, pipes, fittings, etc., must immediately be brought into good
repair as any premises on which water is found wasting from these causes will be disconnected
without further notice.
There is absolutely no desire on the part of this Company to curtail the use of
water when same is used in a proper manner for domestic purposes, but in a large number of
cases we find this privilege being abused and should the abuse continue we shall be forced to consider the installation of water meters, which would make the cost of water much heavier for the
same consumption.
We once more draw to your attention the fact that this is being done in YOUR
interests as every leaking tap or pipe or sprinkler used unnecessarily lowers the water pressure
and consumes water that may be needed in a few weeks more for household purposes or may be
needed TODAY to extinguish a fire on YOUR property.
Thanking you ill anticipation of your co-operation in this matter, we are,
Yours truly,

There is no Grain

Therefore, any grain mixture is not a balanced

The mash ration, high in protein, goes to make
up the white, while the grain ration, which is high in
carbohydrates and fats, makes the yolks of eggs.

Cumberland Pretest,
ln tbe Senior League standing above
it will be noted that If Cumberland
wins their protest, they have entered
in connection with tbe recent Lady
smith-Cumberland game, both Nanaimo and Cumberland will be tied for
first. The protest Is on account of
Ladysmith playing McMurty and
Landerbaugh, two recent Oranby men
who had not been registered with the
Ladysmith team two weeks, as la required ln the Island League.
We learn Ladysmith ls also In bot
water over another protest Nanaimo
officials are pressing the latter. In
the last game between Ladysmith and
Chemainus, the Ladysmith folks
played- one Kerr by name, who was
not registered the required period.
If these protests are held valid, lt
will leave the argument tor tbe silverware between Cumberland and Nanaimo..
In tbe Comox District Intermediate
League, the swlly Nipponese are
showing their heels to everybody. The
local boys have excellent chances of
grabbing the pennant, and it is not
liekly that they will let It slip out
of their Angers without an awful argument. Tbls week-end Union Bay
and Bevan exchange greetings on the
former's sand lot. The other game
is between the Japanese and Cumberland, and to date these two teams have
drawn the biggest crowds, and this
ramu will no doubt prove no exception to the rule.
Costly Errors Lose What Should Have
.   Been Tight -Uaine.
On Sunday last the Cumberland
baaeballers chucked a costly game
away to the Union Bay boys In the
Intermediate League. It was a pity
for Dave Hunden to lose a game by
4 runs when he should not have one
tally recorded bad be been given any
thing like decent support. Anderson
was on the mound for the Clamdlggers
and pitched a great game, allowing
but four safe hits. It was a costly
game for tbe local lads to lose, as
they are now one game behind the
pennant leaders—thc slugging Japanese. A win for the locals ties the
league leadership once more.
Tbe superb pitching of both Andy
Anderson, for Union Bay, and Dave
Hunden, for the boms team, waa the
feature ol tbe game. The pitchers divided the honors of the day. Each
struck out 12 men and both mounds-
men Issued a free pass to the premier
sack. Hunden was taxed for seven
base hits, and the local swatters only
managed to connect with four safeties
from Anderson,
On the day's play the visitors fully
deserved their win. Their defensive
work was excellent, the team giving
Anderson air-tight support, bungling
but two chances, Renwlck played a
great game ln the fleld for the visitors,
and his team-mate, J. McKay, excelled
with the willow, touching up Hunden
for about half the team's hits, three
ln all. The Bay boys made a nice
double play In the last Inning which

'•■Cotton" Miller played well ln the
fleld, although he booted one chance;
he took delight ln hammering Anderson's offerings around the lot, as
also did Dave Richards. The letter's
excellent base running was a pleasure; he stole no leBs than four bases,
and was called out tbe flrst time be
attempted to steal third—wben he appeared as safe as a churcb.
Although the locals did not fall ln

that lost the game. The local boys

everyone has tbelr "off" days.

Steel Industry for B.C.
That an agreement has been formulated between the Coast flange Steel
Company and tlie Provincial Government which will facilitate the establishment of a steel industry in the
province is the latest announcement
of Premier John Oliver, who lias
staled that this will come into effect
in the next few mouth3.
Associated with this new and important enterprise are: Mr. H. J.
I.andalil, ex-Mayor Gale of Vancouver,
J. A. Campbell, a Vancouver lawyer,
and Mr, C. P. Hill, the wellkuown
mine owner and engineer, of Van-1
couver, who advised tlie interested I
parties.
Tlle Government of Ii. C. lias agreed
to bring in an Act at the next session
of the Legislature to repeal tlie present bounty on the production of Iron
and steel, and in lieu of that bounty,
to guarantee the bonds of tlle
Coast Range Sieel Company up to
$4,000,000, or one-third of the total
investment required. A similar
amount lias beeu guaranteed by the
Imperial Government, and the Dominion Government has been ap-
pj-oached tor financial aid.
The location of the proposed site
s'or ihe plant of tlle Coast Range Steel
Company has .not yet been divulged,
hul it. will undoubtedly be on tidewater
and in tlie vicinity of iron and coal
mines. Union Day has been mqu-
tionod ns ii probable site for Iho new

Coal Seam Found
An analysis made by T. Scott Anderson, Sheffield, England, shows that
the coal found near Seaton station,
on the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway,
which is part of the Canadian National Railways, in Centra] Drllish Columbia, gives a coke yield of 74 per
cent. This is said to be a greater
return than that of any other coking
coal in the West. Being located in
the centre of one o£ the greatest mineral regions in the world, this coal
will be an important factor in future
mining operations there. There are
several seams, running from eleven
inches to six^eet in width on tbe exposed surfaces. The following interesting details are taken from the
analysis:
Per cent.
Moisture        1.5
Volatile matter     23.1
Mixed carbon   61.1
Ash  13.5
Sulphur  8
The chemist, T. Scott Anderson,
writes: "The total quantity of crude
oil obtained equalled 34 gals, per ton,
which on distillation gave the following:
About 6 gals, of light oils up to 150C
" 4 gals, of medium oils up to 200C
" 6 gals, of medium oilB up to 250C
" 6 gals, of medium oils up to 300C
" 12 gals, of medium oils over 300C
These latter 12 gals, can be fractionated further aud another 10 gals, of
good heavy oil obtained, plus 60 lbs.
of pitch. The quality of these oils
is exceedingly high, and 1 have no
hesitation ln saying that in England
the bulk could be sold at -it/id per
gal. Of course, the oils require the
fullest fractionation possible to bring
to light the real value of the product. With every coal it is essential
that the ultimate values should be
known, and it is possible that the
4l/ijd per gal. I have named may be
brought to 6d.
74 Per Cent. Coke.
"The coke yield is about 74 jier
cent. This is a very firm coke, freo
from sulphur, and as metallurgical
coke would he worth in this city 30s.
(approximately $7.50) per ton. What
It ls worth in British Columbia I am
not aware, but if a steel plant were
running there it would be valuable.
"Sulphate of ammonia—produced 15
lbs. This is low simply because of
our low temperature. Much more
could be obtained by treating the
coke further and producing power
gas. The amount of gas produced was
small, and after washing would be
used for firing the retorts. The cost
of complete treatment would not exceed 4s.   ($1)   |er ton of coal."
Welcome Rain
After inonllis of intense neat ami
smoke, the result of tlie recent forest
fires, Sunday last brought ,-i respite
from anxiety to tho residents ot Cumlierland and the district. An early
shower and a morning's rain did
much to dampen the ardour of the
encroaching and widespread forces of
Devastation, and cleared the countryside of columns and clouds of smoke.
Tbat welcome rainfall was indeed
something to bo grateful tor and no
one was put out except the fuming
lires themselves. Wl.th miles of
valuable timber converted into smoke-
illled space, with homes and property
and lives destroyed or In danger, the
ilrst rainfall for some loug weeks was
we hope thankfully received by everyone who hns a home to lose or a
Hbarth to protect, and should help to
keep us from grumbling at the rain
that kept many from their devotions.

Before Stipendary Magistrate Baird
on Wednesday afternoon, at the Court
House, Cumberland, Owen McDade, of
Royston, was charged by the Chief of
Police with being within the precincts
of Cumberland municipality, on July
29th, last, and driving a motor-car for
the purpose of plying for hire, without a municipal license.
The defendant pleaded not guilty. It

elowly up and down Dunsmuir Ave.
with a "For Hire" card attached to
his automobile, and that he was ad
vised by the Chief of Police to take
out the customary $5.00 municipal license, which he refused to do. Although urged by the Chief to do the
same as other motor drivers do, McDade positively rejected the Chief's Insistence that he secure a license to
ply for hire in the city of Cumberland.
Ihe magistrate imposed a 15.00 fine,
which together with the license and
costs, made a total of (14.80 to be
paid in two days.

FAVORS UNION BAY.
The Rev. Thomas Mensles, M.P.P.,
for Comox, is authority for the statement that the steel plant which the
Imperial, Dominion and Provincial
Governments are combining to establish in British Columbia, will be located at Union Bay. The accessibility
ot the harbor, the almost Inexhaustible coal supply of high coking quality
close by, and the reasonable price of
land in the vicinity, all point to the
feasibility of our local member being
correct ln his estimate of the probable site for the great steel industry
which H. J. Landahl has spent strenuous years to bring to fructification.
The local hydro-electric plant can
produce all the power necessary for
the steel plant, and is only a few miles
to the north of the proposed site. Mr.
Menzies said: "The great steel works
of the world are located adjacent to
the coal beds, as wiil be the case at
Union Bay, and the Iron ore ls brought
by rail or steamer to the coal district. For the Pennsylvania steel
works, ore ls brought even from 'way
up Lake Superior."
