Island League
Veterans of Nanaimo Aro Defeated
Ily Thre* Clear
Goals
Tho locals travelled to Nanaimo on
Saturday last .engaged the Veterans
in nn Upper Island League game,
emerging victorious, after a hard
gamo, by u score of three goals to
untiling. Tiie goals were scored by
Turner (1) and Oraham (2). Those
two new forwards of Cumberland
have certainly made a vast Improvement in tlie locals forward line. In
tlie three games lhat they hove played
in they have scored nine goals—six
against tlie Davenports and threo
against the Vets. The game last
Saturday at Nunalmo was according
to reports appearing In the Nanaimo
papers, spoiled by tlie inefficiency of
the Referee. Mr. Holllday. Commenting on tlie game the Nanaimo
Herald says: "Tlie Vets seemed to
waver before the oiirushing forwards,
who were certainly the most aggressive, and are the fastest set ot forwards seen on tlie local fleld for some
time."

SUPREME ENTERTAINMENT
.Uuurlrc Toumrur's New Production
Scores Big Success—Is Weird
And I'nusiuil Tule
.Maurice Tourneur's latest production, "The Isle of Lost Ships." a First
National attraction produced by M. C.
Levee, will be at the Gaiety Theatre,
Courlenuy.on Friday and Saturday Of
tills week. t It Is a worthy successor
to the magnificent production which
tills directorial genius lias to his
redlt.
Fantastic, weird, unusual and
trftught with tlie mystery of the sou,
The Isle of Lost Ships" Is tlie
strangest story thut Ims yet been presented on the screen, iu the opinion
of this reviewer.     it tolls tlie tale Of
mysterious region where the derelict ships of tlie ocean drift together,
und where, upheld by tlie tendrils of
the flouting kelp and seaweed, they
flout down through the centuries tu
u doom infinitely remote.
n this welter of hulks there are
to be found tiie lost caravels of Columbus aud modern liners; Spanish
ships of the times of Cortez und the
lost boats of Raleigh's lli-fatud
cruises. And thither tlie author,
Crittenden .Marriott, brings liis hero,
his herione and his villain to work
out their strange destinies in a locale
utterly new and novel.
Milton Sills plays the role of the
hero, a condemned man sentenced to
die in the electric chair at Sing Sine;.
Anna Q. Nilsson plays the role oi
the heroine, a daughter of a New
Vork millionaire. Frank Campeau
gives perhaps the best performance
of his career in the role or Jackson,
a New York detective. Walter Long
is cast as the villain of the tale.
Shipwrecked on this strange islaiul
of dead ships, tlie girl, the convict
and the detective find themselves i.i
a weird colony of those who havo
been shipwrecked before them—newly-arrived castaways and descendants
of those wrecked in ancient days.
How the refugees escape from the
"island" and return to civilization 1?
told with a sweep of imagination
that stamps-Tourneur is one of tne
greatest producers of tlie age and
"The Isle of Lost Ships" as it distinct
addition, to the numbers of master
works of the screen.
"The Isle of Lost Ships" grips the
emotions in a vise-like manner, kindles the blood as the story of adventure and romance is unfolded, anil
gives new life to jaded Imaginations.
In a word it is supreme entertainment, and we take pleasure in recommending il to all readers of this
newspaper.

BEVAN RANGERS
HEAT LOCAL JUNIORS
Lust Sunday, on the Itecreation
Grounds, the Bevan Rangers showed
their superiority over the Cumberland
Juniors by defeating them In a fast
exhibition gams of Boccer by a score
of 1-0. The grade of football shown
hy both teams was not what they are
capable of anil it was clearly seen
that some changes In Ihe liue-up are
necessary tu produce two leains thai
will make a Btro'ng llghi for the 0. li
Allan Cup, which the Juniors now
hold.
Neither side showed up nny brilliant
players, with the exception of the
goal keepers who both played a
heady game, especially Walker for
the Hangers who made certain of ihe
stinging penalty shot from the hoot
of-Micky Mitchell, by saving In greet
style.
The Hanger's lone goal came from i
cross by Walker which Aitken
promptly kicked Into the net giving
Huffy no chance. From then on tlle
Juniors penned the Hangers In their
own half but could not get the hull
past  Walker  who seemed  Invincible.
The line-up fro the two teams was:
Rangers—Walker, .Marshall, Robertson; lllrd. Weir. Keenan: Watson,
Burns. Aitkin;.. Strachan and A.
Walker.
Juniors—Boffy, Stevenson, Stewart,

After two days of strenuous discussion und consideration of provincial
problems, the delegates to the fourth
annual convention of the Associated
Boards of Trade closed their proceedings Friday night as guests of the
Vancouver board at a dinner in the
Hotel Vancouver, Speeches were few
and brief. Instead of hours of oratory the hosts had organized a series
of seemingly Impromtu surprises that
kept the visitors wondering what was
to happen next.
After short addresses by Mr. J. B.
Thompson und J. K. Macrae, tlie
guests were surprised to see a "Chinaman" in all tlie regalia of pigtail and
loose jacket enter the hall, talking
pidgin Englisli and demanding to see
the president. Protest wns voiced by
some of the guests nt the Intrusion,
particularly when it was gathered
that the Oriental wished to Join the
"association" so that he could get
more for his vegetables. It was a
few minutes before the hoax became
evideut, so cleverly did Mr. Harry
.McKelvie carry out the impersonation.
~ Followed By Fight.
Later ut an unexpected moment a
Vancouver member made an attack
on tlie "futile methods" of tlie Associated Board of Trade. A second mem-
her objected on a point of order, when
a third interjected and finally he and
a fourth member got into such un altercation thut tliey challenged each
other to a fight.
At tills juncture two strangers appeared on tbe scene and undertook to
act as proxies in the battle. They
turned out to be sturdy amateur boxers who soon stripped to tlle waist,
and in the centre of the crowd put on
a five-round boxing exhibition. The
boxers were "Billy" and Arnold Bertram . The board members who took
part in lite proceedings that led to the
bout were Messrs. J. N. Harvey, F. G.
T. Lucas, A. W. Glvin nnd E. L. Fraser

At tiie afternoon session Mr. W. L.

The fighl thai la being waged lo

fuel oil a light that The Islander
iia's, ai all limes championed, brought
forth a lengthy discussion. An increased duty on fuel oil is an absolute necessity if tlie coal mining industry on Vancouver Island Is to ha

Some of the members argued thut

Speaking of—-
FIR VENEER— For the living room or den there is
nothing to beat the fir veneer panelling; the beauty of
the grain ia always a pleasure to behold. It makes the
room look rich and cosy.
WALL BOARD— A splendid substitute for plaster;
especially do we recommend its use for the shiplap
house, or the house where foundations will not carry
plastered walls. We sell the "Murray Made Wall
Hoard" which is not susceptible to weather conditions.
PLASTER— Always plaster your house if possible,
for, while substitutes are used, our experience has always been that a well plastered house on a good foundation is one ofthefewthings that we can truthfully say,
thai is the best as well as the cheapest inside finish.
SHINGLES— There are many substitutes for shingles
on the market today, extensively advertised and used,
but we maintain that shingles are still the best roofing
material and make excellent finish for outside walls.
SIDING— Proportioned with the shingles on outside
walls, angle rustic siding holds first place, we .think so.
TAR AND BUILDING PAPER— A most necessary
material for all buildings. We venture to say that it
is not used as liberally as is necessary in the construction of buildings. A building of any sort requiring two-
ply of lumber should always have one or two ply of
paper between.   It saves the fuel bill.

On  Tuesday  nfternoon  the  annual
nictting  of   the   Comox   Agricultural
and  Industrial .Association  was held
ut the hall of the Association, Courtenay.     There was u meagre attendance of members, which is a regrettable  clrcunistnne  for, now  that tho
Association  is In much better unnr.-
Olal   condltiun   than   two   years   ago
when Ihe annual full fair was all but
thrown up, the enthusiasm and vim
and encouragement to the directors,
so necessary for the success of an association   should   he   forthcoming  In
greater measure  than  when  the big
task  was  undertaken  two years ago
for the obvious reason that, ns a gain
—and  a   substantial  one—has  been
made in the year just closed It would
not bo in the interests of the association to allow the good work that has
been done to go un rewarded through
tlie lack of co-operation on the part
of  those  interested   in  the  Industry
Agricultural  Associations   have  been
organized to foster.     "Detstdes the en-    ,
couragement  given   the  directors  of
ihe Association at Ihe time of the fair
it   is   gratifying   to   note   that   One
Thousand  Dollars has been paid to-,
wards the purchase of  the Agricultural grounds from Mrs. Lewis, leaving a balance of five hundred dollars
to be pnid within  live years.     It is
doubtful if there nre many other agricultural associations in  tho province
that   can   show a better   condition.
But II is not dollars alone that count.
j Without   work—continuous   work   in
j harmony with the directors in the di*
i reel ion of unity of purpose .thut de-
* gree of prosperity that is due to any
organization whose main object is the
betterment of agricultural conditions
can never be attained.
The officers wbo held ollice last

"For Love and Hate are mere emotions in the North.
In the East they are life—and often death "
Jack Nelson was a British subaltern,
handsome and free from care. Free
also from fear, as testified by his
Military Cross with bar, earned by
dauntless courage and enterprise u-
mid tlie burning sands ot Palestine.
And now, on leave, he was revisiting his old haunts in Alexandria, in
which place he had spent many days
in hospital suffering from the wounds
incurred lu clearing, single-handed, u
sangar full of fighting Turks. Once
more the Joys of the Casino at San
Stephano ond the wnrm embrace cf
the Mediterranean for the strong
swimmer. Once more the delicate
confectionery and the Tipperary Ices—
in layers of wonderful colors—at tlle
Cafi! Oroppi and the Cafe Atheneoi.
Once more the Majestic Hotel and the
Egyptian Theatre—with the barbaric
music, the sensuous dancing, and the
plays in a strange vernacular. And
at night, from every alley the mysterious wail of the pipes and the raucous
blare of the native bassoon.
There it was that one evening in the
Rue Rnnileti, ere the sun had set, he
encountered Zoida, who in other
climes would still have been a child.
But who, in the forcing bed of eastern climate, and the mystery of the
Egyptian race, was already a woman
grown, with all a woman's lure, and
—shall we say it?—oil a woman's artifice,
A child of nature born in an obscure village in Upper Egypt. Snatched from poverty and squalor to the
hothouse luxury of the harem. Fed
on sweutmcM and caresses, trained in
the Iron discipline of fear nnd bodily
chastisement.    Little she   cared    so
that she was clothed in fine silks and I draped In the flowing foliage of the
laces.   Her lips carmiued, her lovelj   bougainviilea and well detached from
brows and lashes painted black and
her shapely finger-tips stained with
henna—these things to her represented the height of caste und nobility.
Clothed in fine raiment covered by
the inevitable black cloak, her features ouly partly concealed by the
flimsy whiteness of the yashmak thut
passed from ear to ear across her
dainty nose, she loved to wander, on
the very few occasions permitted her,
along the boulevards, and contrast
her clothing with that of the western
women sbe met wlios**e exposure appeared to her indelicate, and to
glance sidelong at tlie bold Franks
and revel in their undisguised admiration.
Ziiiiia walked demurely, with eyes
cast down, But she was iu trutli
neither shy nor modest, And llie corner of her lliuiii almond eye glimpsed
the handsome English officer us he
passed, then uplifted iu u momentary
flicker.
Now Jack was not demure. Neither
was lie modest nor shy. When he
sensed the greeting frum those lovely
eastern eyes, he halted in his stride
and turned about more quickly than
was his wont even on parade—and
Jack was a smart soldier. As lie re
solved to follow the graceful figure

tempting a mouth must be concealed
by that white yashmak, he saw a rap
id half turn of tlie lovely hcud thai
gave him all the Invitation lie required. For he had been in Alexandria be.
fore—and he was no fool.
So when, nt length, his charmer en
tered a gharri—the diminutive landau
of the east—Jack jumped into another
and, with a wave of the hand, indicated to the native driver that lie was to
follow. A few miles out, ut Sldi Bislir,
on the road to Victoria, the leailinii
gharri pulled up outside a garden, beyond whicli stood a pretentious villa

We Give the Best	
Electrical Installations
There is no doubt about it.   We are hero to prove it.
On the 19th of May 1921 we received from tlio Provincial
Inspector of Electrical Energy a set of Rules and Regulations
governing the Installation of Electrical Wiring were Immediately adopted and have been lived up tn In every sninllcHt detail.
We carry the largest and most complete stock of any
Company or firm of its size in B. C. and so can take luimediuto
care of your job without subjecting ynu to any annoying delay
waiting for special material, etc.
We gladly Invite Inspection b yllie highest Electrical
Authorities of any Installation we huve made since the Provincial Regulations were inaugurated and our most convincing
argument as to why we should do your wiring Is the fact that
of the jobs we have had inspected ALL have heen pronounced
perfect. And then we have the knowledge of Electricity acquired through many years of experience an dlhls should
surely count for something with you when you are selecting an
Electrical Contractor.
A man may know how to drive a nail precisely, but he Is
a dangerous man unless he knows the effect of the driving
upon the material into which the nail enters and so it is In the
Electrical Contracting business, it is not only necessary to
understand the practical installation of wires, .switches, fittings, etc., but it is doubly necessary to bo able to make the
calculations that will ensure maximum safely, economy of
operation, and the proper functioning ot the Electrical Bnorgy
for which the wires, switches, etc., are meryly paths.

any neighbor.
On th* instant, Jack was by the road
side, walking past the gate that opened into the garden. As he passed he
brushed by the little lady in the yabh-
niak, ami gazed into a pair of eyes
whose limpid depths contained^ at
once, the glories of the sunrise, and
the fires of Hell,
One whisper in dainty French as
she passed; "To-night," and she waa
gone from his gaze. Then Jack was
whirled back to the Square Mohamed
Ali, cursing the sun that took so long
to set.
Rut even the longest twilight—like
the longest day—comes to an end,
though twilight iu the east is but a
short purple interlude to give the celestial stuge-carpeuters time to change
the set of blue aud golden day to the
block and silver of the nocturne.
Thou came the velvet night: the nir
u warm scent of spices and mystery;
the sky a dome of black, studded with
silver stars that blazed like moons,
And no click betokened the opening
of the gate to the villa at Sid! Bishr.
No such clumsy device would betray
poacher Jack. But, over the fence at
[lie reai" stole a dark figure—one moment shown in the light of the stars—
then mingled in the shades of the fragrant orange grove.
No sign of life marked the outside
of the villa, save perhaps tha tone
window stood wide open, inviting the
amorous breeze, und, by some strange
coincidence, a tiny square of dainty
cambric handkerchief lay on the ledge,
it may be, perchance, the lady knew
her Jack. Certainly Jack knew his
lady.
Feeling first for the automatic pistol snuggling in the pocket of his jacket, Jack cautiously raised himself up
to the window and over the sill into
(he dark and silent room—a room redolent with the subtle perfume of the
East, ami throbbing with thc pulse of
its mysterious glamor.
When his eyes had accustomirt
themselves to the darkness, he dimly
made out a small figure crouching in
the depths of u divan.
in un instant, a soft body was in his
arms. Tender arms were round his
neck, and his burning kisses were being returned by a pair ot lips that
sent the hot blood coursing through
his veins, while into his eyes there
gazed rapturous violet ones whose
i'lame glowed with ambient passion
and the voluptuous surrender of tlio
East.
For love and hate are mere emotions in the North, In the Eust, they
are life—and often death.
Swiftly time sped until: "Hist!
What is that?" A stealthy tread beneath the window. Then Zaida buried her face in thc coat of her foreign
lover, weeping tears of silent agony.
Full well she knew the price that
would be exacted if she were dlscover-
1. She could envisage the silent
limv.itrings and the still more silent
Xile whose ample bosom had before
times borne to the sea bodies fragile
uid beautiful as hers.
But, passing D»r a moment uu hia
round, the burly watchman passed on
unsuspecting, his fierce knife still
sheathed. For well was the hearem
of Effendi Hayam guarded. Not ho
well, however, hut that love could
still -as evor—despise locks, whether
human or mechanical.
And, with a quiet sigh, whether of
relief or disappointment we know not,
but Jack quitted his grasp on his automatic.
What words, wliat protestations,
what vows passed must he imagined;
but, long aftor the electric cars had
ceased their traffic for the night, one
passing on the way from Alexandria
wouhl have been surprised to meet
a rich foreign tourist tramping the
dusty road just like a poor native, nnd
wouhl have wondered why bo whistled, half under his Ih.hIi, a song ot
love and of thc Houris of I'urudhic.
For so the native brain would have
construed the notes oi' Uie wnlU tune
from thc "Merry widow."

MOTHER'S LITTLE MAN
Mcithers make a mistake it tliey do

and awkward, ill at ease before
strangers and unacquainted with table
etiquette when ills sister possessos tlle
evidence of good breeding,
We are talking about the growing
boy. Willie lie is still under your
daily eare, teaeh hlm to take off his
hat when he meets you on the sires',
to rise when you enter the room, to

and to carry any bundle or parcel not
too heavy for small hands. A Utile
fellow who Is permitted to wear his
hat In Ihe house when liis mother and
slstetrs are present, cannot be expected ta lake il off because visitors
imve arrived.
Lei your boy wait ou you. Do not
rush wildly to wail on him. Let him
get your rubbers and slip them on
lor you and lcl him perform many
little services at home. If you are
wise you will send him on errands to
your friends, give him notes and messages to carry, and otherwise make
him at ease when obliged to address
someone he knows slightly.

were ugly to everybody.
it's the same way with all of us.
We rest too hard on Sundays. Some
of us smoke too much and most of us
eat too much, Instead of just relaxing a little we let everything of the
week go and fall all to pieces in doing
whaft we call recouping.
That's tlie reason we have "Blue
Mondays".
Some day we will learn how to rest
up over Sunday without completely
disorganizing our work for Monday.
If we don't, it would be a good thing
to cut "Monday out of the business
week and begin on Tuesday.
BLUE MONDAY
Never approach a business man
witli a big proposition on Monday
morning, because Monday morning is
the morinng afler Sunday.
Wc can'l explain why it is, but
every man goes to liis ollice on Monday morning with it grouch. We
suppose it. is because he's been resting up all day Sunday and sort of
hates lo tear himself away from il.
Anyway, we know it is so.

"I am afraid!"
The world's richest man said,
"The greatest drawback in most men's
lives is fear."
Fear lias killed thousands of men,
tormented more millions, buried alive
countless numbers. Fear deadens
your will, squanders all possible success, cramps you into a collin here on
earth, hinds you hand and foot—
makes a coward of a man. Fear upsets your reason.
Years ago men failed to understand
so many things. Years ago men
looked upon tlie wind, (lie wave, the
lightning, the eiiithquakc as an enemy
Governments compelled men to fear
and religion hinged the hope of
heaven on fear.
Education lias done much to overcome fear until today only the timid
child and llie ignorant are afraid of
the dark.
What have you to fear? You car.
do what others have done, and perhaps more; bul you will never do this
until .sou have yanked l'enr out of the
closet of your brain.

mental and physical pains that we
suffer by expecting trouble.
These phantom monsters of worry,
these harrassing and haunting ghosts
that disappear when we confidently
tackle them, these persecuting parasites, have linked more lives with fail-
ure than we think.
Solicitude, care, anxiety, interest
are sources of much conceal, but we
refer to the reign of terror—worry.
It is the nightmare at noon and th';
misery ut midnight.
A great many men and women torment themselves by this, weaknes.;.
They get lost and stranded over something that cannot come true.
The dreaded plague that we look
for, the aggrevating, irritating tilings
we expect, seldom show up. It is the
unexpected that gives us tho solar

"Down To The Sea In Ships"
A Super-Special Production
A BreaUitakliig Battle With' An En->
rased 90-Ton "Bull" Whale in n|
Tale Keplete With Thrills Romance
And Adventure, makes Elmer ('11;-
ton's "Down to the Sea In Ships"
An Unquestionable Jlastorplece.
Few motion pictures that have ever
found their way to successful completion huve been attempted on the scale
with which the Whaling Film Corporation has produced "Down to the Sea
in Ships," the Hodkinson super-special
which comes to the Ilo-Ilo theatre on
Friday and Saturday.
The outstanding fact in conjunction
with the filming o fthis picture, whicli
nerves to make it unique in its field,
is that It is one of the few productions
in thc history of motion pictures that
has for its locale the tempestuous
waters of the high seas, and the principal character in this breath-taking
drama of the Atlantic is a ninety-ton
whale. Nature has provided not only
a background utterly impossible to
imitate through any trick of photography, but it places in this setting
an   enraged   leviathan   of   the   deep,
stung to fury by a deeply embedded
harpoon.
The greiU moment in "Down to Uie
Sea in Ships" comes when the whale,
realizing the futility of escape, turns
on his captors, sweeps one side of die
! boat, leaving but the stumps of broken oars in the hands of the fear-stricken crew. The harpoon is still embedded deeply in the back of the
whale and in one last effort to rid itself of the life taking iron, the giant
mammal of the deep swims off to a
distance of several hundred feet,
turns, hesitates an instant, and then
Charges the bout with the speed and
force of the fastest express. It U
only a matter of seconds until the
Whale has hit the boat square iu tin
middle, smashing it to bits and tossing
its crew into the air. Sharks ar«
plainly seen ready to strike the instant any of the crew touch the
water.
Hack of all this action, however, Is
one of the most appealing love stories
revealed on  the screen.
At this point, there begins one oi'
the most hair-raising scenes ever ro-

corded by a motion picture machine.
Tearing at express speed straight for
the broad Atlantic, the whale sets off
in a dasli for freedom. There have
been many hairbreadth escapes to add
thrills to motion pictures, but in practically all of them there have been due
precautious taken to guard against
accidents, but In "Down to the Sea i:;
Ships," McKee and his boatmen face
a situation beside which the stunts of
the average screen dare-devil fall into
Insignificance.
Utterly beyond the reach of the
mother boat and 3.000 miles of deep
water before them .their only courso
is lo stick to llie boat until the efforts
of their capture cease. Subsequently,
two other boats ure able to attach
lines to the leading whaleboat and for
hours the whale tows a weight estimated at 6,000 pounds through the
water at a speed almost inconceivable.
This entire action takes place before
the eyes of th eastounded audience.
Every foot of it rings with the dangers of the sea and is permeated with
(he tang of salt air. There is nothing posed or forced or stagey from
the time the action starts until, utterly exhausted and unable to free hlni-
Self from the harpoon, the whale
comes to the surface and gives up the
fight. It is realism raised to a degree that has heretofore been only
dreamed of in screen productions.
"BULL DOG DRUMMOND"
What many noted writers and motion picture critics declare to be one
of the best melodramatic film plays
ol' the season, "Bulldog Drummond,"
is coming to the llo-llo theatre next
Monday and Tuesday. It Is an adaptation by "Sapper" of the stage play of
the same name which had such a
successful run on Broadway. The
cast Is headed hy Carlyle Blackwell
and Evelyn Greeley, supported by
such excellent players as Gerald
Deaue, Harry Do-garth, Horace De-
vcre, Warwick Wardle, William
Browning and Dorothy Fane.
Tlie story takes place in England,
where most of the scene were filmed
and deals witli a demobilized army
captain who nfter the thrill and excitement of trench life finds lolling
around in a dinner coat and going to
tea parties very boring and monotonous. He puts an ad in the paper
asking for employment which promises plenty of excitement and even
crime If it Is of an adventurous and
I humorous nature. Thc answer which
. he receives to his ad plunges him
Into a veritable whirlpool of myrftory
und excitetment with more uctlon
j trammed In than lie encountered in
I No Man's Land. He finds romance
as well and wins the love of a beautiful girl.
It Is said lhat the gripping interest and exceptional quality of tills
picture has created a strong demand
for more melodramas of this character.

Unquestionably first honors for the
! opening week of the Legislature are
- due  Premier  Oliver,   who  scored  on
his opponent, the leader of the opposition, on  several occasions.    For in-
; stance, the Conservatives had a drastic line of action regarding the re-op-
: ening of the I\ ti. E, Railway light.
They  were forestalled by the Prem-
! iev's announcement thut a special aud-
{it ls to be made of all railway accounts.
Mr.   Bowser's   remarks   during  the
! week were largely confined to his old
line of destructive criticism of the ad-
mlnlstraton.   No deiinite charges were
j made by him, excepting that the gov-
, ernment was "corrupt, spendthrift in
I its ways, and such like.'   On the other  hand,  Premier Oliver  lias  shown
definitely   that his  administration   is
making   headway   despite   heavy  obstacles.

Ottawa, Nov. l&tn— "The popaiar
dogma 'making the lumberman plant
as much as he cuts' will never remedy
the decadent tendencies ot Canada's
forest resources. In the history of
this country we have ouly planted six
thousand acres of timber areas, while
forfeiting to human-set iires nioro
than six hundred thousand -square
miles of original forest."
This statement formed part of a
public address delivered a short time
ago by Mr, Robson Black, manager of
the Canadian Forestry Association.
"The most alluring and substantial
commercial   opportunity   before   the
people of this country today is jealously to look after an estate of young
! forests, all on public owned land, tot-
' ailing 5u million acres in extent. These
! young  forests  are  the  sole  hopo  oi
' the future not only for the making of
lumber and paper  but for providing
essential materials without which agriculture, fisheries, mining, power development and all other constructive
activities   will   have   a   struggle   fur
survival."
Speaking of the evil of misplac.-d
settlement on lands never designed
for agriculture aud intended only for
timber growing, .Mr. black gave illustrations of public policy forcing "the
stranded man on the hopeless land"
rather than the "landless man on the
manless land."
Whole communities have been tragically misplaced and after a few year.s
of wasted investment and loss of time
had been removed to districts giving
a chance of human sustenance. Tlio
great call in Canada today waB for
■definitely marked forest reserves, dedicated to the production of tjauber.
rigidly protected from lire aud unfair
encroachment by settlers and managed
on a long-term basis, To this end all
foresters are diligently working aud
with the support of the public will u-
chieve it.
Mr. Black made it clear that the
present losses yeur by year in the forests could not be tolerated by any
people desiring to retain their thousands of timber towns, their army of
forest employees, or their industrial
leadership.
"The overwhelming problem of forestry is to block the annual inroads
of man-caused tires. The most potent antidote is, Education, The public will protect forests when ihey know
the reasons for doing BO, Other countries have thoroughly proved this.
In Canada, inherited attitudes, long
since obsolete, represent the main
reason for the dragging progress of
forest conservation. Constructive
publicity oilers the cheapest and only
permanent insurance policy."
An emphatic denial has beenNgivea
by Attorney-General Manson to the
report circulated that because of the
recent drug case investigations in
Victoria, a plot was on foot to oust
the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
from this province. He said that the
cases had been carried through the I
courts in order that any alleged drug
operations might be thorougly investigated. He aaid he had a very high
opinion of the mounted police.

"Wonderful indeed la tho power of the voice."--Cicero.
The power of the voice is the success of the telephone. It wtJs in the endeavor to transmit sound that
the telephone was invented, and the great factor of its
development into an article of very common use is that
direct conversation may be carried on.
Because it enables one's personality to be sent is
the reason that the telephone promotes friendships
and intimacy, and brings about closer relations between those in business. The pleasure of hearing the
voice you know makes long distance the casual practice
of every one.

WE   DELIVER
of the Liberal caucus last night, and
it was intimated, thc question ot the
necessity of a tux upon imported oil
wns under consideration.
It is intimated that a bitter fight
is being waged on this issue. Hon.
Wm. Sloan Is holding out for at least
one cent a gallon sales tax on fuel
oil. The debate lasted several hours
without a dlcisiou being reached.
D e r o g a t ory reports circulated
throughout tbe province regarding the
government's reclamation project at
Sumas were quieted following statements made in the Legislature Wednesday by Hon. E. D. Darrow, minister of agriculture. For months Uie
rumor haa been circulated that tho
government was to be asked to bear
part ot* the expense of reclaiming the
lands in the Sumas Lake basin. Hon.
Mr. Harrow stated that such a course
would not be followed and he challenged any experienced farmer to say
that the total cost of Sumas lands wns
not a very low one. This was proven,
he contetnded, by the fact that the
land-owners would not sell the'r
property even ut a price considerably
higher than the valuation placed upon
it.
Mr, A. D. Paterson, member for
Delta, declared that after twenty-six
years of farming In the Delta he was
convinced the Sumas lands were the
best farming In the province.
Hon. Mr. Barrow expects the Sumas
reclamation scheme to result in the
production of as much farm produce
as is raised in the Chilllwack district,
a section of the province with a population of 10,000 and producing $750,000
worth of dairy products alone, to say
nothing of hay, grain, roots, vegetables and meat.

Strong Support
For Oliver's
Resolution
VICTORIA, Nov. 21.—Every member of the Legislature, opposition, independent and government alike, sup-
portetd Premier Oliver's resolution
-asking for the appointment of a customs officer at the port of New York.
It is unusual for Mr. Bowser to stand
behind the government leader on anything, but so strong an appeal did tli?
Premier make on the question of provincial rights .that there was no op-
| position to his motion.
' Should Ottawa look favorably upon
the resolution, it will mean that goods
manufactured in Eastern Canada and
sent to British Columbia via New-
York und the Panama Canal, will not
hnve u custom duty imposed upon
their re-entry into this province. The
Premier maintains that, this regulation, now in force, is contrary lo the
principles of the British North America Act, and in this contention he is
fully supported by all shades of political opinion.
