others seated on the platform with the Angelus.
above-mentioned gentlemen were: Mr,
D. R. MacDonald, Mayor of Cumberland, and Mr. George O'Brien, alno of
"The    Coal   City."     The    chairman
wasted no time in   getting  down   to
business, and  called  lirst upon  Mr.
McKenzie   to   address   the   meeting.
The member for Slmllkameen opened
his remarks witli an attack upon the
member   for Comox, whom   he   said
never voted in the House any other
way than with the Government, although   elected   as  an  Independent.
When there was a possibility of having to vote against the Government,
the Rev. Mr. Menzies was generally
absent.   Mr. McKenzie launched Into
a severe arraignment of the present
administration for their conduct ln regard to roads and road-building, and
strongly supported the Idea of a trans-
Provincial highway from the coast to
the interior, which would   give   the
people   of   the two sections  of  the
province easy access to each other's
territory, with a consequent development of business.   Mr. Jones followed
and took as his text the burdensome
taxes that the people ot British Columbia have to pay.   His speech was
critical in Its entirety, and he wasted
no words In trying to show that the
present administration was the most
extravagant that had  ever  been  ln
power at Victoria,   Col. Lister, a former member of the Land Settlement
Board and erstwhile supervisor at the
Creston soldier settlement,   told   his
audience of his connection with the
famous   102nd   Battalion,   and   then
launched out into the sea of criticism
in his remarks anent the workings of
the Land Settlement Board.   From a
listener's  standpoint,  the  speech  ot
Dr. S. F. Tolmie was perhaps the most
entertaining, being a resume of some
of the work that had been done by
the  Ottawa  Government  during  his
term of ollice as Minister of Agriculture, In the way of assistance to the
farming  Industry.    He   told  ot  the
great efforts that had been made—and
successfully—to   stamp   out   disease
among the cattle and live stock of the
•Dominion of Canada.   He told ot the
work that had been done ln connection
wltb the endeavor to have the British
embargo  on  Canadian  cattle  lifted.
His was the only speech of the evening that was almost devoid ot politics,
and his words were listened to with
a great deal of pleasure  and   profit.
When resuming his seat, the genial
Dr. was given great applause.    Tbe
last Bpeaker of the evening was Mr.
Bowser, who, ln beginning his address,
made a categorical apology for having
come to Courtenay at the instigation
ot   tbe   Mervllle   settlers   who   had
asked him to come to their district iu
order that they might talk over their
plight with him, and And out whether
be could render " first aid," as it were,
In devising ways and means for making the lot of the Mervtllltes easier
than it has been to date.   He held that
the best and only reasonable solution
to the problem was to re-assess the
land and give lt to the settlers at a
fair figure, at a price that they could
reasonably be expected to pay, regardless of what the cost of clearing had
been.   He was prepared to go further
than that if necessary, and give each
settler at the Merville area a Crown
grant, the same as to any other pre-
emptor.   He criticised the administration of the Liquor Control Act, and
wonders why the Government waB not
making a greater prollt, when compared wltb the revenue  the  Quebec
Government had received on approximately the same turnover.   Mr. Bowser has beeu beard to better advantage; a good deal of bla old lighting
spirit   evidently  being   lacking   on
Saturday night   At the conclusion of
his remarks, the chairman asked If
anybody wished to ask questions, but
as tbere seemed to be nobody of an
Inquisitive turn of mind, the meeting
was ckwod by singing "Ood SaVe tho
King."
C.A.O.S. Concert
Tuesday Next
In this issue the Orchestral Society
publish thc programme of their first
Popular Concert to be held on Tuesday next at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre. They
also publish the balance sheet for the
lirst quarter of their existence. Both
announcements make interesting
reading.
Although only organized In August
last, the society has already proved
to be a valuable asset to the com
munlty, and their unselfish efforts to
provide the public with good music,
both vocal and instrumental, are very
much appreciated, as evidenced by the
record attendances at their Sunday
evening sacred concerts.
Unfortunately, however, even a
public-spirited combination such as
the orchestra has shown itself to be,
Is not immune from the adverse criticism of a few jaundiced individuals
who, Instead of pausing to reflect upon
the great disadvantages under which
the society labors, seem to take a peculiar pleasure ln "knocking" their
endeavors to please. It has been suggested that the members are "making
a good thing out of it," that the playing ot such and such a piece was
"punk," that the hymns in which the
audience join so heartily should be
eliminated from the programmes, etc.
None of these bilious-looking individuals, however, are noted for their
association with any effort to Increase
the pleasure and happiness of the
community, and their ill-natured remarks are treated with the contempt
which all decent-minded citizens must
feel for them. It must be remembered in the Ilrst place that the orchestra is an "amateur" orchestra in
the true sense of the word, all being
amateur musicians. They individually possess their own instruments,
and pay a monthly subscription into
tho funds, and the whole ot the proceeds of their concerts hns been devoted to the expenses incurred in promoting the concerts and the remainder
In the purchase of music for use in
future programmes. With a membership of over 20, it must be remembered
that as most of them are working at
the mines on alternate shifts, only
half the number can attend relieasals
al one time, thus necessitating a considerable amount ot extra work and
trouble in the propartlnu of programmes. Then there nre one or two
ol the very superior parsons who
mow all there is to be known about
music, and condescend to play at a
lorformauco without having previously attended rehearsals (which they
aonsldor is not necessary In their
one). Such persons nre the despair
'i' a conductor, and anathema to the
ither members. However, with all
lie ;e and other handicaps, the society
ins placed beforo tho public music,
lOth vocal und instrumental, of a high
*rdor, which comes as a welcome re-
'lef from the "jazz" style with which
.ve have been surfeited for the past
few years.
The mayor and police commissioners are to be congratulated on the
public spirit ln permitting Chief
Merry to organize and conduct the orchestra, and the thanks of the citizens
arc due to all tlie members, particularly to Mrs. F. Oliver, their accomplished pianist, who untiring energy
has done bo much.towards achieving
the great popularity the orchestra has
attained, and to Miss Gladys Dando,
for the business-like manner in which
she carries out the duties of hon.
secretary.
The programme for Tuesday ls very
attractive, and we hope a bumper
house will reward the promoters.
Early application should be made
for reserved seats, which may Bo obtained at FrtJst's Pharmacy.
Complimentary remarkB were heaB
on all sides last Saturday morning fli
connection with the dance given by
the young ladles ot the office staff of
the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir),
Limited, held ln the Ilo-Ilo Hall on
Friday, Nov. 3rd. It was a brilliant
success, managed entirely by thi
young ladies. The decorations were
superb with autumn foliage and
colored streamers, The four-piece orchestra was situated In the centre ot
the hall, tastefully set to correspond
with the other portions ot the hall,'
At midnight dainty refreshments were
served. The ladies spared no time or I
pains in the entertaining of the guests
ot the evening, with every portion of

LAMBRINOS GETS
SEVEN-YEAR TERM
■   U   ,
ANTIPAS IS CLEARED  OF THE BANK FORGERY
CHARGES.      STORY OF CONVICTED MAN
IMPLICATES ONE BUGAS, SAID TO BE
LEADER INTERNATIONAL CROOKS
(From last Sunday's Colonist).
George Rlgas, alias Lambrinos,
Greek candy maker here for the last
two years, was sentenced to serve
conviction before Magistrate Jay yesterday of uttering forged drafts in
five Victoria banks.
Jerry Antipas, of Cumberland, also
Greek candy maker, who drove
Lambrinos from Cumberland to Victoria last Friday week, and was arrested and charged as an accomplice,
was discharged from custody, following a motion by City Prosecutor Harrison for withdrawal of the charge.
Bugas or Bogus t
In the background of this story was
outlined the vague form of one Alexandra Bugas, alleged by Lambrinos
to be tbe master spirit and expert
forger of an International band of
crooks. This man had come to Victoria, with a supply of forged drafts,
according to Lambrinos. It was
Bugas who had tempted Lambrinos
with the hope of money with which to
return to family and home in Greece;
ll. was Bugas who had directed opera-
lions; It was Bugas who had received
?2.000 of the $3,000 obtained by Lambrinos; and lt waB Bugas, finally, wbo
bad made a clean get-away, outside
the Imperial Bank.on Yates Street,
when he saw police olllcers coming to
arrest Lambrinos. Mr. Higgins suggested that it was possible that a man
held by the New York police would
turn out to bo Bugas; and that it was
still possible that the man might be
brought to trial.
Detective O'Leary said that Lambrinos, In his confession to the police,
had always maintained that the forgeries were the work of Bugas; and
the police were Inclined to think that
It was at any rate true that LambrlnoB was not the actual forger, but
was working under the direction of
another man, Lambrinos had been
known in Victoria, ab a candy maker,
for the past two years. He was believed to have lived in Victoria before
the war, and claimed to have a record
of war service In the C. E. F.
Swindled of WtfiOO,
City Prosecutor Harrison, who said
that  the  operations  were  ingenious
and long-prepared, and who asked the
court
gave
from the various banks up-Island and
in the city.
Restitution was made by Lambrinos
of $1,100, being the sum found in his
possession when he wns arrested outside the Imperial Bank. Detective
O'Leary added that Lambrinos hail
confessed to him that he had packed
his effects and was prepared to leave
for Greece on the night ot the day on
which he was arrested.
The Share of Bugus.
The head of this organization, according to the Btory told to Mr.
Higgins by his client, was Alexandre
Bugas. Bugas, so the story went,
came to Victoria some months ago.
He held out to Lambrinos the bait of
a visit back to his homeland and
family in Greece. Lambrinos fell to
the tempter, and was persuaded to
open small accounts In most of the
branch banks on the Island. The
coup, as planned by Bugas, was to be
carried out with dramatic swiftness;
and Lambrinos, as the latter had
learned to his cost, was to take most
ot the risks of the criminal venture.
Heavy Sentence (liven.
Mr. Higgins asked the court to hoar
these circumstances In mind when
passing sentence. There was uo
doubt at all that Lambrinos was
neither tbe author of the scheme nor
the forger of the drafts. It wns clear.
whatever might bo still to be discovered, that Lambrinos had been
throughout the tool of some bold
master crook. Lambrinos had told
the Btory, implicating Bugas, In Ihe
police, at the time of the arrest; and
counsel submitted that it bore evident
marka of its truth upon its face. He
asked the Court to treat Lambrinos
with less severity than It he were tbe
undoubted organizer of this crime.
Magistrate Jay said that the criminal code took a very severe view of
the crime to which the accused had
confessed. Under the code, one who
uttered a forgery was liable to thc
snme punishment as for forgery itself; and that punishment might
amount to life imprisonment. Banking Institutions, nnd society generally,
must be protectod from the operations
of such skilful forgers as wero thore

Mr. Arthur Sullivan, stipendiary
magistrate at Campbell River, died
suddenly at tlie Island summer resort
on Monday afternoon last, having been
stricken suddenly by heart failure.
He was ill not more than three hours,
passing away in the Campbell River
hospital shortly after having been removed there. The late Mr. Sullivan
was one of a family of telegraph
operators, and was born at Heart':

father had settled when the first Atlantic cable was laid by the "Great
Eastern." He has two brothers, also
telegraph operators, one in New York

WE ARE THANKFUL.
Thanksgiving Day is past, and
Christmas holidays lie just over the
hill,
There will be the usual shrinkage
ot bank balances and tightening of
purse strings as the season draws
nearer.
Always we have wondered why people get hard up ns Christmas draws
near. And we wonder If it affects
other business like it does the printing business. Folks just naturally
slop paying thc newspaperman until
after New Year's.
But what's the use of worrying?
Wb are thankful there are no hospital
or undertaker's bills to pay. We are
thankful we have a job that keeps us
busy. We are thankful we are not
rich nnd worried nbout numerous investments. And we are thankful we
live In a town this size and don't have
to endure a continual strain to make
both ends meet in a wild endeavor to
keep up with fast friends in a cold and
cruel city.

>f the war. Achievement In this dl-
ectlon will be continuous. There is
no reason why the nations, or any one
ol them, should despair. There is
evory reason why they should be hope-
ul of the future. Civilization ls secure. Humanity's faith ln itself ls
sound. Peace, prosperity and good
will for all those who have courage
anil faith.
SPREADERS OF GLOOM.
Prophets of gloom and woe are
finding ample evidence of the wrath
to come which Is to overwhelm the
present civilization. One of these sad
pessimists tells us, though every age
ln a sense, faces a crisis of its own,
we to-day are facing not a crisis of
our own generation, but of the whole
civilization.
We are willing to admit that the
struggling of human society at present
Is not pleasant to contemplate, even
tbat it presents many ominous aspects
which seem to threaten the stability
of the social order so painfully erected
by Christian civilization through nearly twenty centuries. But what then?
Shall phases of unrest, want and despair—the results of violated law,
though often the victims are Innocent
ot all responsibility for the wrongs
which compel their suffering—destroy
In us the hope ot the ultimate victory
of truth, justice and righteousness?
Not at all.
The nations are paying the penalties, very largely, that they invited.
But they will survive the present
crisis. They will go forward. Their
experience will be painful. Something
ol* their burden will be transmitted
as a legacy to succeeding generations,
but they will be all the more firmly
established in that faith which makes
for peace and progressive development because of the ordeals through
whlcb they have passed and now are
passing.
It is strange that the war and its
reactions worked no greater havoc
than they have. Looking out upon
struggling human society, noting thc
wounds and scars left by the recent
tremendous conflict, lt truly is amazing how much has been done ln the
work of social reconstruction ln every

PREPAREDNESS.
Many folks nre fond of recalling the
days when they were poor, their early
struggles, and drawing from those experiences what they are pleased to regard as valuable lessons.
We all recall those lines of Riley's
"back where we were so happy and
:i0 poor." Many of those who have
bad such experience will recall thnt
Iheir changed conditions for the better begaln the day they learned the
value of the habit of thrift. A great
financier, himself, once a poor farm
boy, says that the new relations between Canada and the rest of the
world should teach Canadians this
vital lesson of thrift. It Is his Idea
and vision that we are to become a
wellsprlng for all the nations.
Wo must be thrifty ns Individuals
We should learn over again the lessons of the last four years. We must
realize that we are a unit among many
other national units; that we must
have regard for proper and adequate
latlonal protection, for material national progress.
Thrift Is our one best means of continuous national preparedness. In the
days of plenty, let us lay up treasure
af against the lean year.
Take a lesson from the squirrel.

McCLARY'S
Electric Ranges
Women's burdens for centuries past were heavy
because the human race did not know how to lighten
them. An enlightened age has gradually brought now
labor-saving devices to assist her—the greatest of
which is the Electic Range.
McCLARY'S ELECTRIC RANGE
has exclusive features that further reduce women's
burdens, saving time, labor and anxiety.
There is the Protected Element—the Element is
the burner, where the heat comes from. Like otber
Electric Appliances, the heat is radiated from wire
coils, but the Protected Element snugly encloses these
coils in porcelain to save them from carelessness or accidental upsets. Therefore, McCLARY'S Protected
Element lasts longer, as acids, moisture and grease
cannot harm it. It heats quickly and holds the heat
long after the power is turned off.
The wonderful seamless, round-cornered Oven—
not a nick or crevice in its smooth, even, impenetrable,
glassy enamelled interior. lAs sanitary as any enameled
interior. As sanitary as any enameled utensil, rust resisting, cleanly. Racks and rack holders removable.
Elements swing on hinges, so that entire surface of
oven is clear for cleaning.
The Oven has a 1% in. insulation around the side
and a V/* in. magnesia block insulation in the door—
this holds the heat in oven. Roasts and baked foods
retain their full flavor. The result is better baked
foods with minimum shrinkage.
Warming Oven with small element inside.
Signal lights to show whether current for Oven
is on or off.
Switches for elements plainly marked.
Extra plug for other Electric Appliances.
Mercury or Compensating Thermometer.
Fuses easily accessible.

Two More Points
Theue teams played nn Upper la-
land League lixture on the Central
Sports ground on Saturday last which
resulted In an easy victory for the
locals by 2 goals to nil. If any further argument is required in favor of
Sunday football, It was furnished ou
Saturday last, as only a mere handful
of spectators were present to witness
tlie mutch. There were about 200
spectators present, as compared to
nearly 3,000 the previous Sunday. Ii
there is uny great demand for Satur
clay football In Nanaimo, lt waB nol
in evidence. We did not even see thc
greatest opponents of Sunday tootball
present to show the sincerity ot their
Intentions to foster the game whei
played on other than the Lord's Day
Cumberland were the aggressors toi
the major portion of the game. Plump
scored when he Intercepted a nic<
cross from the left, and steadying
nicely he gave Townsend no chance
Fowler scored a second goal shortly
afterwards when Townsend mis-
judged the bounce of tbe ball and permitted it to roll between bis legs.
Merchants were awarded a doubtful
penalty for Stewart handling within
the area. Clark sent tn a good shot
but Wilson made a beautiful stop and
cleared. There waa no further
scoring,
During the second half, Cumberland
played line football in the open, but
their finishing in front ot goal was
weak. They easily held the upper
hand throughout. Wilson was only
seriously tested once In this half,
when he made a line save of a stinging shot from the left During this
period, Plump and Boyd ot the Merchants, were banlsbed from the game
for an attempt to stage a boxing exhibition as an added attraction.
Of the Cumberland players, Wilson
in goal handled the tew shots that
camejiis way ln line style. His saving of the penalty Bhot, and another
In the second halt, being very fine.
Collier put up a good game at back.
His placing to his half-backs being
one of Uie features ot his game.
Stewart was slightly off color, his
kicking not being quite as sure as
UBUal. Of the halt-backs, Conti played
a sterling game; he was probably the
outstanding player on the Held.
Brewster played Mb usual good game,
and Monahan also did well. In the
front rank all played well in the fleld.
Fowler seemed much too anxious to
shine and over anxiety spoiled a number of good shots for him.
On the Merchants: Graham, at half,
was their outstanding man, but he
spoiled an excellent display by too
frequent fouling. The others played
a fair game, but were outclassed by
their more experienced opponents.

The Nanaimo Foresters' junior team
invaded the Cumberland district last
Sunday and played two games, the
first with Union Bay in the forenoon,
when they defeated the "Clam boys"
by 8 goals to 2 goals, but lost to the
Cumberland Juniors by 2 goals to nil
in the best junior game that has ever
been witnessed iu Cumberland district,
Although the Nanaimo boys were defeated, they played a nice, snappy-
game, with lots of pep and fine combination. They gave a splendid display. Time and again the spectators
applauded them for their snappy
work with the ball. Cumberland boys
put up a great exhibition, their forwards being at all times dangerous
when within shooting distance.
Sommerville and Hunden were the
pick of a good forward rank. Bond
Bcored the first goal from a pass from
Sommerville, Sommerville scored the
second by a penalty kick with an un-
savable shot. This forward rank,
when tbey get going, will take some
defeating. Both Farmer and Mitchell
played their usual robust game on the
half-back line. With the assistance of
Marshall and Miller on the back division, they made a good pair, and both
played a fine game. Boffy again distinguished himself ln goal, with hie
usual skill and knowledge; he brought
off at least tour miraculous saves; he
saved two penalty kicks and cleared
hia lines tn perfect fashion. This boy
will take some beating ln the near
future. (Look out Wilson).. The
spectators were well satisfied with the
splendid display of both teams, and It
is to be hoped that the football fans
of Cumberland will be treated to more
of those games this season.

me on Nov. 6th, 1921:
So sudden thc cull, the parting severe,
We knew not, nor dreamt not, that
Death hovered near.
The purpose, Lord, I cannot see
Uut all is well that's done by Thee.
N'o one knows how much we miss him,
Uod alone knows the bitters pain
We have suffered since he left us;
Life lias never been the same.
Oft our thoughts do sadly wander
To thnt sacred, silent grave,
Where tliey laid my darling husband
Just a year ago to-day.
(Inserted by his sorrowing wife and
little son Alden.)

How To Play Basketball
(By Observer).
VI.—Centre and Guards.
IMPORTANT POSITION.
One of the most important positions
on the basketball team is that of
centre and a few words regarding It
may not be amiss.
The centre is the pivot man, as a
rule, of all team plays, both defensive
and offensive. Por that reason he
must be accomplished in all the arts
which we have discussed In regard to
the forward and at the same time possess the main qualifications of a good
guard. He is usually a tall man so
that he can secure the ball at the Upon', although some very good jumpers
are found among players of shorter
stature. In selecting a centre, ability
to get tho jump, along the following
qualifications, must be considered.
He must be a live wire, for he has
to cover all parts of the floor. He ls
ar. offensive player when his team
has the ball and a defensive one when
his opponents have it. He must constantly back-check and must be able
to stand the most strenuous pace. He
must be quick on his feet and must
use his wits at all times.
Shoulder control must be acquired
by the centre so that it is possible to
reach the full helgth with one arm
without moving the other. Swinging
Indian clubs and dumbells will help
to develop the shoulder muscles and
to make them supple and strong.
The abdominal muscles should also
be well developed In the centre, because he must remain ln his half of
the circle when jumping for the ball
and not commit a foul by touching
the other man. The leg muscles, of
course, must be ln excellent-condition
and must respond immediately to the
necessity for the Jump. Stooping with
hands on the hips and raising the
bened knee high are good developing
exercises for the leg muBcles.
Perhaps the most Important feature
ot the centre's game is good passing.
He should be able to shoot well, to
guard well, and above all to pass well.
He will be required to feed the tor-
wards and his passes to them must
be made with great accuracy. Being
the pivot man, he Is likely to receive
more passes than any other man, and
he must therefor handle the ball with
neatness and despatch, losing no time
in getting tt out to the forwards.
Back-checking Essential.
Just a word about back-checking.
You have often seen a game lost because one or other member of the
team did not back-check. The failure
of the forwards to do so has been
mentioned, but lt Is an even greater
error for the centre to fall in this, for
his opponent will probably make the
third and free man ot the opponent's
offence. Should a guard be drawn out
to check him, a forward Is left unguarded.
The position ot guard calls for
specialization in one or two qualities
which the forwards need not possess
to the same degree. A sense of perception and cunning in solving the
offensive play of the opponents and
the ability to move quickly enough to
break up these formations are necessities.
The guard first of all must be very
keen in sensing the direction in which
the play Is going to move. Iu advancing to check his man, he must remember that It ls possible that the
ball will be passed ln any of three
directions and that It Is necessary for
him to start for and Intercept even
before it is thrown. It is that quality
of being able lo sense the trend of
play and to time one's interference
successfully that make a first-class
guard.
Passing out to the forwards and
backlng-up offensive play of the team
are two Important features of the
guard's game. A running and a stationary guard are usually posted for
the latter purpose, the faster and better shot of the two being placed as the
running guard. It Is his duty to go
up the floor with the offensive and to
assist by going In for passes when the
other men are covered. He must be
fast In order to get back when the
opponents secure the ball.

LAVISH SCENES IN
"MANSLAUGHTER"
Cecil B. De Mille's Production is
Coming to Ilo-Ilo Theatre
Friday & Saturday.
"The most lavish scene since 'Joan
the Woman !'"
That's wlint is said of the Roman
hacchiianal recently staged by Cecil
B. Dc.Mille for his latest Paramount
production of " Manslaughter."
Several years ago the same producer gave to tho screen his classic
tale of "The Maid of Orleans." At
that time thousands of "extras," clad
in the picturesque costumes of the
period, were to be seen dally around
ilie studio and on the massive sets
created for that picture.
Since that date there have heen
many huge scenes Aimed at the West
Coast Imme of Paramount Pictures
Hundreds and even thousands of people hnve worked simultaneously before the cameras. But it remained tor
Cecil B. DeMllle to again set a new
mark for sheer, spectacular splendor.
And he did it with the Roman scenes
iu " Manslaughter."
The episode, which is used to point
a powerful moral, shows Rome just
before the fall—pagan Rome with all
of its licentiousness and debauched
beauty. At the heighth of the revel-
while the guests, the dancers and the
guards slumber in druuken stupor—
the barbarian hordes storm the gates
and pillage, burn and destroy everything in their path.
Beatrice Joy in the role of the patrician hostess of this bacchanal and
Thomas Melghan as the leader of the
barbarians, have the principal roles ln
this, as with Lois Wilson, they have
in the major portion of the actual
Btory of " Manslaughter."
Credit for the stately settings goes
to Paul Irlbe, art director for Cecil B.
DeMllle productions, who also contributed to the designing of the hundreds of colorful costumes. An elaborate ballet, trained by Theodore Kos-
loff    especially    for   this   occasion,
gured prominently In the action ot
his portion of the picture.
Several famous paintings Including
the "Thumbs Down" painting depicting the end ot a gladiatorial combat,
vere literally reproduced by the pro-
lucer and scenarist.
"Manslaughter," which Is Cecil B.
DeMUle's most masterful and lavish
creation, is coming to the Ilo-Ilo
Theatre on Friday and Saturday.
Story of South Seas is
"The Bonded Woman."
Want to go to the South Sea Isles?
Nearly everybody does, since reading the books of Frederic O'Brien, W.
8. Maugban and others. Patrons of
the Ilo-Ilo Theatre will And themselves carried away to this romantic
region when they see Betty Compson
in "The Bonded Woman," her latest
Paramount picture which opens there
on Monday and Tuesday next for a
run of two days.
In this offering, the South Pacific
archipelago Is shown at its best, with
enough of Its worst to make the
drama. Miss Compson, as Angela, goes
to a dive tn Honolulu to rescue the
man she loves. This ls a colorful
scene, with dancing girls, sailors and
natives, and pictures Hawaii as most
people fancy it. But Fate, and the
girl's wish, then remove the pair to a
barren deserted Island, where the denouement takes places.
Don't miss it Monday and Tuesday.

Merville Settlers
Hear Members
Of Legislature
On Sunday last the party of Opposition members of the Provincial
Legislature who had addressed a public meeting in Courtenay, went on to
Mervllle, where they met the people
ol the Soldier settlement and discussed the Merville problems from a
great many angles. Previous to the
meeting, the settlers at the Soldier
settlement met the committee from the
Courenay-Comox Board of Trade and
Comox Agricultural Association and
talked matters over, taking under advisement the following resolution,
which was at the later meeting presented to Mr. Bowser and endorsed
by him:
THE RESOLUTION.
Whereas the Government through
the Land Settlement Board's agents,
Messrs. Walker and Klrchner, made
the following promises to induce settlers to take up land ln the Mervllle
Settlement:
1st.—That the land would be sold
to the settler at cost;
2nd.—That the Land Settlement
Board would clear ten acres for each
settler;
3rd.—That the Land Settlement
Board would build a house and small
barn for each settler.
4th.—That the whole would be appraised at a fair valuation and sold
to them on easy payments.
And whereas the Government, finding that lt was costing too much to
clear the land, stopped this work and
started a system of providing small
loans to the settlers; as they cleared
the land, known as the Progress Loan
System, which has proved a failure
and which we understand the Government are about to discontinue.
And whereas if some permanent
policy ls not laid down soon, the settlers will have to abandon their places,
losing the fruits of three years' work.
Therefore, be it resolved that thia
committee from the Courtenay-Comox
Board of Trade and the Comox Agricultural Association, recommend the
following:
1st.—That a deed be given for each
block ot land and that a mortgage be
taken by the Government, payments
to be made over a term of thirty years
together with Interest at 6 per cent,
such Interest and principal to be
amortized in twenty-live equal payments, first of such payments to be
due and payable in five years from
the delivery of farm to settler.
2nd.—That all places be valued by
three competent farmers of Comox
Valley. One to be chosen by the Merville Community Association ,one by
the Government, and the third by the
other two; such valuation to be final.
If the two bodies above mentioned fall
to agree on a third party, the appointment to be made by the Courtenay-
Comox Board of Trade.
3rd.—That all those who have taken
up Improved tarms.be granted a loan
up to one thousand dollars for buildings, and one thousand dollars for
clearing land, as soon as they can
prove to such valuators that they had
made improvements to that value.
4th.—That each settler be entitled
to a loan of (500 for stock, such
amount to be paid over a period of
twenty years with interest. The Government to hold chattel mortgage on
all stock to amount of loan, and land
also to be held as security of loan on
stock.
5th.—No loan to be granted on
clauses 3 and 4 unless approved by
the board of valuators.
It Is the opinion of those who hnve
made a study of the Mervllle problem
that the above recommendations are
the best that can be made, and as the
resolution was favorably received by
the Merville Community Association,
there seems to be little or nothing
standing ln the way of a permanent
settlement that will redound to the
credit of those instrumental in framing its terms, and one that will enable
the men who went on the land at the
solicitation of their own leaders, to
make a comfortable living.
