exceedingly pretty. Two large kew-
pies dressed as bride and bridegroom
adorned the centre of the table, while
festoons hung from the chandelier to
the corners of the gaily docked table,
where they were held ln position by
small kewpies. Many beautiful gifts
were received and the congratulations showered on Miss Watson in
her forthcoming marriage exemplified the high esteem in which the
bride-to-be Is held.

Musical Recital
Much Appreciated
One of the most enjoyable musical
treats ever given in Cumberland was
tlie recital, given on Monday evening
by Mrs. Gertrude Huntley Green and
Mr. Gideon Hicks. The audience was
justly enthusiastic and repeatedly demanded encores.
Mrs. Green possesses magnetism
and charm, combined wilh a most
pleasing personality! and quite won
Uie hearts ot all her hearers. She
plays witli a faultless technique,
wilh most artistic conception and
brilliancy and thoughtful attention to
detail, The "Chopin" group wos
especially enjoyable, perhaps tlie fav-
irito being the Nocturne in G minor.
Vs au encore Mrs. Green demonstrated her versatility by playing a violin
nolo, playing Ibis instrument with unusual beauty of tone and interpretative effect. Mrs. Ralph Frost accompanied Mrs. Green in this number in
her usual manner. The ease with
which Mrs. Green plays the most difficult passages was amply demonstrated In the playing of the Sixth
Rhapsody of Liszt, for which she received repeated applause. The well
known "Sextette" from Lucia, played
with the left hand alone, quito delighted everyone. In fact, each and
every number was a revelation to all
tlie music lovers of Cumberland.
Mr, Gideon Hicks was in splendid
voice and met with a most gratifying
reception. He possesses a voice of
great volume and beauty of tone. His
enunciation is perfect, and he shows
splendid vocal attainment. All his
.iongs were well chosen and rendered
in truly artistic style. "Tourney of
King John" aud "The Victor" perhaps
being tlie favorite. "Rolling Down to
Rio" was a delightful feature and
equally enjoyable were Rubinstein's
'Since First I Met Thee" and the ever
popular "I'll Sing Thee Songs of
Araby," which Mr. Hicks knows will
always please a Cumberland audience.
Biggest Thrill
Seen On Screen
Priscilla Dean the Star
A rushing, roaring sweep of resistless waters released from bondage—a
mighty torrent of timber crushing,
grinding oil before it—logs bumping,
splintering in tlie snarling waters—
sweeping all before its relentless
path. Such is one of the big thrills
in 'Conflict."
The most gripping, soul-searing
moment ever filmed. Terrific in its
intensity, the mighty log jam, tho
blowing up of the dam, and swashing torrent of felled forest ls the
mightiest spectacle of the camera's
In all Us splendor, in all Its ruthless glory, "Conflict," Priscilla Doan's
wonderful new Universal-Jewel, coming to the llo-llo theatre Friday aud
Saturday, vividly records the actual
dynamiting of a huge dam, and the
breaking loose of hundreds of thousands of the prisoned logs.
"Conflict," the sensational Red
Book serial by Clarence Budington
Kelland, is a mystery-drama, the
rugged mountain country of the Canadian North Woods as Its locals.
"Confli"t" is the story of a fight-
he battle of two indomitable wills-
tho struggle for tiie mastery of the
logging industry.
The beauty of thephotogrophy nnd
the magnificent scenery of the Canadian North Woods country Is unsurpassed.
Thousands upon thousands of huge
logs whirling through the dynamited
dam wero caught by tbo six cameramen who risked their lives to attain
tills remarkable film.
An entire logging camp, running at
full blast witli all its men, was requisitioned by Stuart Paton In the direction of tills marvellous picture.
''Conflict" surpasses even "Reputation"—Priscilla Dean's most recent
Universal-Jewel success—in its intensity and dramatic forco.
"Hurricane' Hutch" and comedy
reels will he screened also.
Three Nights Per Week Only
Until further notlco, Mr. Jas. Hayworth, of the Ilo-Ilo theatre, will only
show pictures three nights each
week, namely, Wednesdays, Fridays
and Saturdays. Patrons are asked to
kindly make a note of these changes.

ladies refreshments.
A short review of the splendid work
being done by tbe local St. John Ambulance Association will not bo out
of order.
In 1D20, this splendid organization
was revived In Cumberland, chiefly
through the efforts of Mr. Thomas
Graham, General Superintendent of
the C. C. (D.)Ltd„ and Mr. Charles
Graham, District Superintendent of
the Comox Mines, Cumberland, B.C. •
A new drill hall was completed and
equipped through the generosity of
the Canadian Collieries and the en
thusiasts in first aid began their arduous tasks and studies, and through
tlie generous advice and assistance
given by Drs. McNaughton and Hicks
a few teams were got together. After
training and study it was decided to
enter the No. 4 surface team in the
Dominion competitions and much to
their credit, they won second place.
This ln Itself was a remarkable showing for such a young team, their enthusiasm was unbounded and they
resolved to get the flrst place the following year, If hard work and study
would do lt. The results speak for
themselves, as ln 1921 they won the
coveted Coderre Cup and medals,
which ls emblematic of the Dominion
It is to be hoped that the present
efficiency will be continued and that
it will also be an incentive to the
otlier teams ln the district, but efficiency can only be gained through
constant work and study, so do not
rest on your laurels, boys, but keep
at the good work as there are a great
number of excellent flrst aid teams ln
this great Dominion ot ours, who are
trying to get to the enviable position
you sre in today. Cumberland Is
proud of you, they are also proud of
the mine rescue team, who won the
International championship last year.
First aid and mine rescue work go
hand in hand and to have the Dominion championship winners In flrst
aid and the International championship winners in mine rescue work In
this small city of ours, ls something,
that the residents of Cumberland
should be proud of, bo good luck to
you, but keep up your present high
standard of efficiency.
Proficiency ln rendering first aid to
our fellow humans ls a noble/work
and often goes unheralded and unsung. It ls very seldom that public
recognition ls given to work ot this
kind, and it is to be hoped that the
pu'.lic will recognize and appreciate
the work that the local boys have accomplished In bringing such a 'high
honor to Cumberland.
The ladies of Cumberland Centre
will handle the refreshments at the
dance, and as they will have an
abundance of sandwiches, the ladles
attending the dance are asked to
kindly bring cakes only.

Granby Defeats
Cumberland 5-1
The finest pride of a boy or man Is
not his pleasure in Ills own achievements, It is his pride In his almost ry
and the heritage of noblo deeds
passed dowu to hint.
Failure to hit In pinches caused the
Cumberland baseballers to lose when
they locked horns with Crsnby last
Sunday ln an Island league fixture.
Although the southerners won 6-1,
tlie score is not a true Indication of
the merits of the teams on the day's
play. The Cumberland boys secured
as many hits as their opponents, but
failed to connec t when hits were
needed. On no less than three oc-
ocaslns, the locals had men parked
on the third sack but the batter failed
to hit safely. Shakespeare, on the
mound for Cumberland, was not quite
as steady as usual, having a tendency
to be wild at times, joe Brown
pitched an cxcollent game for Granby,
but was lucky to get off as lightly as
he did. The heavy hitting honors
were evenly divided between the
teams. Finch and Hogan each slapped out two-baggers, while McMurty
and  Plump secured throe hits.
Both teams were evenly matched
as regards their hitting and fielding
abilities, each securing seven hits and
four errors were chalked evenly be
tweon them. The Granby gang tore
loose on the bases however and secured no less than live amongst them
Cumberland Lose Chance
The locals secured their only run
of the game In the fifth. With two
men away Shakespeare reached flrst
ou Megan's error; Plump drove
Shakey home, when he laced out a
three-bagger. Incidentally, Toots died
there. Tiie same fate befell Tucker
James In thc second inning with
Johnny Marrochl behind him on second base, and the last man out found
another glorious chance to win the
game vanished Into thin air in tho
eighth stanza. With one down. Conti
singled and advanced to third on
Finch's two-sackor, but houos ended
when James struck out and Loinan-
sky (lew out to left field.

Police Court News
Sidney Eccleston, ot Royston Road,
while returning home from school at
midday Monday, was struck on the
left eye by a rock thrown by a youth.
He was admitted to the hospital
where he was attended by Dr. McNaughton, who found the eye much
bruised and hemorrhage of the eyeball, which will necessitate his boing
detained at the hospital for several
days. At the time ot reporting he
was progressing favorably. The matter is in the hands of Chlet Merry and
the sequel will probably be heard at
the police court In the near future.
Three Juvenile delinquents were
brought before the stipendiary magistrate, Mr. John Baird, on Wednesday,
for creating a disturbance and Impeding and Incommoding peaceable passengers on Dunsmuir Avenue last
Sunday evening. They pleaded guilty
to the offence.
In addressing the magistrate, Chief
Merry said that lt was with great reluctance he had found it necessary
to bring the boys before the court,
but in view ot the large number of
complaints already received ot the
disorderly conduct of boys ln the city,
lt wub Imperative that some action be
taken to put a stop to the stone
throwing and disorderly behavior of
boys. The chief said the parents were
highly respectable people, but the
boys had got out ot hand. He respectfully submitted that a certain
course might be adopted which although It would free the boys from
the stigma of having a conviction recorded against them ln tbe police
court, would nevertheless ensure
their future good conduct for a period
under his, the chief's, surveillance.
His worship then addressing the
boys warned them as to their future
behavior, pointing out to them that
they had pleaded guilty to an offence
which rendered tbem liable to a heavy
fine or Imprisonment He directed
that they be discharged on their own
recognizances to be of good behavior for one month, and that during
that period they report themselves
weekly to the chief. He warned them
that If they wore again brought before the court they would be seriously
dealt with.
A certain section of the Juvenile
element ln the city appear to be trying to see how far tbey can go before
the new chief takes an Interest in
their behavior. Several have already
had the point decided for them.
For some time past considerable
annoyance has been caused by the
larrikin element, who ln emulating
conduct of Paul Pry, have Interested
themselves ln peering through the
windows of the ladles' dressing room
and passing objectionable comments
on the occupants, wheu dances are
held at the theatre. Last Saturday
evening found the chief on deck, and
the result In several cases was that
certain Individuals found It rather
uncomfortable to sit down for some
little time after a short Interview
with him.
Space to let for exhibition of agricultural implements, sideshows, etc.,
also tenders for contract for catering.
Those desiring same, please apply to
Ihe Secretary, Mervllle Fair Committee, Mervllle, B.C., for terms.
Owing to a typographical error In
last week's Issue, the date for tho
Mervllle harvest fair read Wednesday
May 23, Instead of Wednesday, Aug.

The Prodigal Son
The youngest son of William Tim-1
mis gave his flrst real kick against
t'us pricks of country life when he
forwarded aa annual subscription to
the office of The Cynic—an illustrated
weekly which took a great interest
ln girls with slim little legs and
wicked little eyes and mouths. Considering that his eldest brother was
a regular subscriber to the British
Weekly and the Church Times there
was bound to bo grave troublo In
the home.
It come with tho first arrival of the
new paper.
"Alfred," said his big brother.
"what's that you're  reading?"
"The—Goods!" chuckled Alfred.
"Kindly refrain from using slang
or I shall tell your father."
"Ratsl" said Alfred.
The big brother pushed back his
chair from the table, Blood up and
then leant forward like a pnle younn
curate drooping over a congregation
ot sinners. As he did so, his eyo
caught sight of a young lady clad in
:i garter, a waistband and a pair of
car-rings. She was standing cunningly on one leg while a fat and re-
spectable old gentleman was slipping
a shoe on her other foot. Naturally
the elder brother shrank hack in holy
"Give nie that paper Immediately,'"
he demanded.
"Certainly not!     You can order a
copy for yourself if you want to sec
I    "Then i shall fetch father!"
Alfred took no notice ot this terrible threat but continued his optical
perambulations further Into the In
terior of ths journal, At the ninth
page he stepped and stared In amazement.
"It's all right, .lohn!" he said
"We're saved! Listen to this: 'Our
Weekly Sormons for the Young. Num

Whereas certain mischievously Inclined persons have tampered
with the valvte of the mains of this company, thereby allowing
a considerably amount of water to run to waste, we therefore
wish to point out that it ls a serious offence to tampe- with such
valves, and should the offending parties be apprehended they will
be prosecuted to the very fullest extent of the law.
But before he could finish tiie quotation the big brother rushed from the
room, tore distractedly through the
garden and orchard, thrust his head
into hulf-a-dozen stables, sheds and
fowl pens, and finally unearthed his
father from the bowels of the pigsty.
"Father!"   he   panted,  "Alfred  has
. . . . gone mad!    He has been seized
by a devil.   You must go to him . .
before it is too late."
The old man came out or the pigs'
residence, removed some of the straw
from his beard and hair, and pensively put his pitchfork against the sty
wall. Being a widower with only
two sons, he took disturbances of
this sort with a certain amount of
quiet resignation.
"What's the matter now,, John?"
be asked wearily.
"It's Alfred! lie's gloating over a
wioked and immoral paper aud—he
r.Imply laughed ut me whon I told
"Hut where did he get it from?"
"I don't know.    It came by post."
"Very well! You get on with this,
John; and I'll go and see him."
John picked up the pitchfork, und
ihe pigs—who had never really liked
his austere nature—scampered away
inlo the furthest corner of the sty,
where they stood angrily grunting
and barking.
The old man sighed, knocked the
dirt oil' his boots and went Into the
"Alfred!" he called.
'"Yes, dad!"
"Bring me that papcr.ray boy!"
"Half a minutc.dad!"
"Do you hear me?"
"Oh   ... all right!"
So Alfred came to the throne of
Judgment witli the new paper in his
band—and a little smile on his lips.
"You'll ime it, dad," he said, quietly.   "It's jolly good—and quite new."
His father coughed. Like nil parents, he had a Great Weakness for
youngest sons, hut he also knew that
one had to be very firm with them—
if possible ....
He look the paper gingerly and
sadly, and as lie glanced through its
contents he tried hard to keep a
straight fa.ee.
"My son!" he said at last.
"Don't you like it, dad?"
"Surely, you're old enough . . ."
"That's the reason," answered the
other. "I'm getting fed up with
farming, it's too dull and lonely here.
1 wa«t to see the world—not John's
face every day." \
"Tut! Tut! You mustn't be so
hard on him.   He means well."
For a moment or so Alfred studied
liis great, hob-nailed boots, his mud
stained leggings and liis rough, cor

"Father," he said at last, "let me
sell my portion ot the,cattle—and get
out of here. I'm going mad. Since
I've seen this paper I can feel it
coming on worse than ever. It tells
me that outside in the Big World,
there's Life and Adventure—and then
1 look up and see —John . . . and
tlie other sheep . . ."
For a quarter of an hour or more
lie developed this theme of unbearable boredom and impending insanity,
and, as lie did so, the Great Weakness for Youngest Sons again seized
his father.
"So he it!" said the old man tn
shaking voice. "But remember, If
vou leave this farm you do so never
to darken these doors again."
Alfred pondered on this for a second or so.   Then he said:
"I'll risk it, dad! London's a big
place and I shall soon find a Job
there. And, any old way, It'll be—
lite!    So who cares?"
The nexl day he sold his portion of
the live stock—half-a-dozen sheep, a
■ouple of bullocks, a horse, three
,'oats. twenty-six assorted poultry,
ind two milch kine.
Then he embraced his father, told
John liow much he would miss his
pleasant face in the mornings and set
oul for the City of Light and Laughter.
It took mighty London three years
to break little Allied, but It managed
io do the Job very thoroughfully. It
eventually reduced him to nothing
but the suit he stood up, or sat down,
in, an old pair of boots, a woolly
vest, a pair of blue silk pants, a
frayed collar, a brown poplin tie,, a
pair of daring socks and a mole-coloured trilby. But he had wooed and
loved; loved and lost; succeeded and
tailed; and, once or twice, half-killed
himself with the candle that burns at
both ends.    And he had lived . . .
When he had sunk to the uttermost
depths and there was no solitary hope
left for him in the whole of London
he began thinking furiously. And, as
he thought, so a little inward voice
whispered to him:
"There's still the old man, you
know ... ."
Alfred suddenly felt very homesick.
He wanted to go out and chat with
the cattle on the old farm, to chase
tlio chickens, to chivy tlle cows, to
furrow the fields, to throttle the fa:-
ted turkey for the Christmas dinner,
to be bock once more In the loving
arms of Mother Nature, where the
earth was so much cooler and swee*-
er than the grey stone pavements of
the .Metropolis. As he pondered on
all these good things stiil left in life
the tears come in his eyes.
So he visited a second - hand
clothes merchant, to whom he sold
his woolly vest and silk pants and
velour trilby; and, hatless and cold,
he returned home by the next train.
Famished and demoralized, he
alighted nt Dowles, the nearest station, and from there set out on foot
for the little farm where he had
spent so many of the happiest years
of his life.
"Father," he said, when he had at
Inst found the old man In thc turnip
field. "I have come back. Forgive
"Don't you do anything of the
kind," cried John, who had joined
"My son!" quavered the old man,
dropping an agricultural implement,
aud holding out his hands.
And then again:
"My son!"
Alfred embraced his father affectionately and presently they went in-
iloors and fed themselves on roast
duck, baked potatoes, raisin roll and
cheese. Warm, clean raiment waB
also round for Alfred, the new cider
hnrrol was tapped, and a bottle of
ten-year-old damson wine popped its
cork merrily,
"Drink, my son!" said the old man.
"And then tell me All About It."
Allied drank deeply and aB he did
.to, a sense of great comfort and
well-being stole over him.
"It was . . . great!" he Bald,
smacking his lips.   And presently:
"Did I say 1 was sorry, Dad?"
"You did!"
"Then, In a moment of weakness, I
lied, 1 don't a bit regret what I've
done.   It was Worth it."
He told his father of many things.
Of Kensington Gardens on a hot day;
ol Richmond ond the Thames; of
Ilungerford Bridge on a Bummer's
night; of Brighton at the week-end;
of Piccadilly Circus when the lights
shone on wet roads and pavements;
of the Russian Ballet, the Revues,
the Musical Comedies, the Plays, and
the Moving Pictures. He told him ot*
an affair lie had had with a little typist from Tooting, of a 'faux pas'
with a widow from Wandsworth, and
of a strange encounter with a girl
clerk from f'liipham.
The old man listened with never a
word to say.
"Tlio London girls are wonderful,'

Results from these two plots show

Davies said. Experts have now declared tlieir experiments in strawberry cultivation in the area a success.
The Comox creamery, which is Bt

This success with strawberries

OTTAWA.—Not tlie least interesting feature of the debate on railway
estimates was the statement ot Hon
T. A. Crerar, that the policy of the
-Meighen Government "was the only
sound policy this country could follow. The Grand Trunk system had
to be brought into thc Canadian National's, and in my judgment the Government of the day would have been
derelict in duty if it bad failed to do
so." The Progressive leader wasn't
boosting much for Rt. Hon. Arthur
Meighen during the election, tut now
the votes have been counted, a belated tribute doesn't cost anything,
and Is better than none at all.
It Is only natural that ex-ministers
to the left of Mr. Speaker should be
better posted than the new Incumbents, and It Is amusing to hear them
at times, providing Information to
help out the latter when questions
come from the many new members In
the Progressive section. And—to re
fer ugain to the member for St.
Antolne, Hon. Mr. Mitchell ran up
against this situation in his railway
speech, when some of his arguments
were challenged by Hon. J. A. Stew
art, late Minister of Railways, and
shown to be based on entirely wrong
promises. In brief, the occupants of
the treasury benches are not always
able o light their own battles, let
alone extend help to each other. And
as for the Premier:
"Gone are the days when his heart
was young and gay,
Those good old days wben he followed  Laurier.
Now lie's in power  and   the arrowB
round him sing,
There's no one needs more pity than
.Mackenzie King."
Interest in the railway rates ques-
lon, now before a special committee,
■eceived new impetus with the appearance, as a witnes,s of E. W.
3eatty, President of the C.P.R. Mr.
3catty, In a long, prepared statement,
informed the members in effect that
tlie country must cease to hope for
relief from* the burden of high freight
rates in the event of the Government
allowing the schedules of the Crow's
Nest Pass agreement of 1897 to come
into effect again. The effect of other
concurrent rate reductions would be
"too serious to contemplate," the
C.P.R. is prepared, however, said its
President, to put Into effect reduc
tions on basic commodities which
would be of greater benefit to the
country generally than resumption of
the Crow's Nest Pass agreoment. All
of which ls a further blow to the ambitions of western Progressives. Mr.
Beatty's statement strengthens a gen
eral Impression that the demands of
ihe Progressives In this regard, would
serve a sectional interest, at the expense of the Dominion generally. It
.nay be accepted, indeed, that there
Is small chance of the Crow's Nest
agreement, with Its special low rates
on a certain small list of commodities
being restored, and so, denied the
wheat bord in the compulsory form
asked for, the Progressives have little
left to hope for from the Government.
With the budget proposals reflecting
the will of protectionist Quebec, there
remains no substantial basis for the
Liberal-Progressive alliance which
the Government at the beginning met

allusion to pre-election promises
made by the Liberal candidate in
Charlotte, N.B. Mr. Hanson said that
W. P. Todd, who was defeated by
R. W. Grlmer, Conservative, had
carried on a campaign throughout
the Island parishes, and promised a
wharf or breakwater at practically
every fishing hamlet In the country.
Mr. Hanson described lt as a 'straight
bid for votes on a bribery principle,'
and challenged by Hon. A. B. Copp,
Secretary of State, to name instances,
quoted specific causes at Castalia,
Welshpool, Deer Island and Seeley
Basin. He added that no attempt had
been made by the Liberal Government to Implement these promises,
some of which had no doubt been
made in good faith.
The dance held ln the Ilo-Ilo hall
on Friday evening last, under the
auspices of the local members of
Legion No. 53 of the Loyal Order of
Moose, was a spelndld success. The
hall was crowded with a happy throng
who thoroughly enjoyed themselves
to music supplied by the famous
Moose orchestra of Vancouver. The
local Moose lodge is making great
headway, many new members being
initiated the last few weeks. Judging
by the enthusiasm shown by the
members at their latest dance, the
encouragement received from the
many dancers who attended, more of
these popular dances will no doubt be
held in the future.

The British Government regulations as regards electric lamps; for
use by miners in firery mines are so
stringent that hitherto the lamps
have been made in a very oompaot
form to be carried by the miner or
hung up near his work. It has long
been recognized, however, that thc
proper position for a lump, to enable
a miner to carry on his work without
severe eye-strain, Is over his brow,
so that the light is thrown on the
work without glaring into his eyes.
A British Arm which had been very
successful with miner's electric lamps
thereupon made a careful study of
the cap lamp problem, uud lias succeeded in producing a cap lamp
which has been approved by the Uritish Secretary for Mines. Tbo whole
equipment weighs only ii lbs. 12 028.,
and includes an accumulator capable
of supplying a 2 3-4 candle-power
lamp with current for nbout 12 hours.
The accumulotor is carried In n metal
case fixed to a belt round the miner's
body, and Is connected to the lamp
on tho mlner'B cap by means of a
specially protected cable. The lamp
Is fitted with a powerful reflector,
and is Ingenuously designed so that
even when lt Is broken accidentally
It will not cause a spark. The uso of
this lamp should entirely'remove the
risk of miners' nystagmus, a distressing nerve disease arising from lack
of suflicient light when working on

An Interesting feature of the committee's Investigation was tbe prevailing belief among the coal miners

years lie has been doing social service work in connection with tbe prison of the state, liefore that lime, as
lie expresses it, he was "down and

Si kufli Bevan Lumber Co., Bevan,
Comox-Alberni, said he considered lt
right to advocate protection ln Bri
tish Columbia and free trade on the
prairies. Different parts ot Canada
found that their Interests were best
served by different fiscal arrangements. The tariff was at best a compromise, and the only thing was to
see that Justice was achieved ln the
fullest measure possible for all sections of the country.
The budget had been so fully discussed that he proposed to confine
himself merely to one angle of it. He
proposed to regard lt from the point
of vlow of the Province ot British
Columbia. He Intended to support
the Government once more and tn
vote against the Conservative amendment, but he had grave doubts as to
whether this was the wisest thing
to do.
Prior to his coming to Ottawa he
had consulted with some of his supporters and agreed with them that he
would lend his support to the Government for one reason on all
reasonable proposals. The reason for
this was that the Government waa a
new organization, and that lt should
be given an opportunity to show
what It could do.
Mr. Neill turned to a discussion of
the amounts of public money, which
were spent In the Province of British
Columbia. He stated that practically
the whole vote for public buildings ln
the far western province went to the
two cities of Vancouver and Victoria.
British Columbia had asked for exclusion of Orientals and had received
a promise of restriction ot Oriental
Immigration. British Columbia did
not want promises; lt wanted immediate action.
The coal miners were asking for
conditions which would permit them
to work more than two days a week.
At present they were earning $40 a
month, or what was equivalent to
about $35 a month ln Ontario. On
this Bum they were expected to maintain their families. While the coal
miners were laboring under these
conditions, they had a vision of ships
of tho   Canadian   Government Mer
chant Marine going to Japan and
freighting Japanese coal back to the
coast for the use of other Government
Mr. Neill believed his first duty lay
In his constituency and then to his
province. He could not see how, lt
the Government proposed to continue
Its present policy, lt could hope to retain the support of the country por
tions of British Columbia. He pro
posed to lay the matter before the
people of his riding in the recess and
he would be guided next session by
what he then learned.
William Elliott, Progressive, South
Waterloo, thought the budget proposals a   step In the right direction.
