NOTED ORCHESTRA TO
GIVE FIRST CONCERT
OF THE SEASON
! Lucky Escape Of
Cumberland People
Last Monday evening while return
lug from Nanaimo In Mr. Beveridge's
car, Wm. Beveridge, A. J. Toylor, H.
Waterfield and C. Tobacco narrowly
escaped serious Injury or possible
death. They were about three miles
beyond Tsable River when the car
skidded In some loose gravel, rolled
over the embankment, and landed upside down with its occupants beneath
It. The top of the car was damuged
beyond repair, but except for a few
scratches, the passengers were unhurt.
The concert season for this district
will commence on Thursday. Sept. 22,
at the Oalety Theatre, Couretnay,
when the Pan Pipes Orchestra, under
the leadership of Airs. (Capt.) J.
Carey, will hold a Cafe Chantant, under the auspices of tlle Anglicau
Churcb.
The Pan Pipes Orchestra created a
very favorable Impression last winter
and hnve been steadily Improving all
summer. For this concert the orchestra will have the assistance of the
talented Japanese violinist. Hunt
Yanni. Special selections will also
be given by a famous Japanese tenor,
a graduate of Tokio and Toronto
academies.
Dance numbers will also be given
by the .Misses K. Moore and Sheila
Allard. and after the performance
refgreshments will be served by tlie
ladies of St. John's church hall committee.
AQUATIC SPORTS
CALLED OFF
Much lo Ihe disappointment of the
citizens of Cumberland, the aquatic
sports which were to have been held
on Labor Day, were called off on account of the had weather.
Although for the preceding dny.«,
clouds, wind and rain were the mqst
important items of the weather, on
Monday morning it was clear und
bright, and excepting for a few showers of rain, the dny was bright and
sunny.
As no notidcatlon of the change of,
arrangements was given to the people, many went to the lake, only to
find the sports called off. However,
some of the crowd remained there
and many rowboats and launches
were in use.
Perhaps the chief attraction was
the speedboat. "Llndy," owned by Mr.
A. Thomson and Air. J. Cameron.
Several people had a speedy ride in
Ihis "fast stepper," and all were Interested In the nquapltilnlug, when
Thomas Coombs showed great ability
In keeping Ills balance on the board.
Despite the cold many bathing costumes were In evidence, so, even although the chief attractions of the dav
were gone, those who stayed had an
enjoyable time.
It is hoped lliat (he committee will
decide to hold thc sports at some
future date, although, perhaps It Is
now railier hue In the soason for such
events.
School Board
Met On Tuesday
The meeting of the school board
took place ou Tuesday, September 8.
Those present were; Mrs. Banks, Mr.
Henderson and Mr. McKinnon.
The first question brough up was
that of seating accommodation for tiie
domestic science room. It was decided that 24 new chairs and two
blackboards be purchased.
On account of the Courtenay Fair
Governor Bruce was to make the
| formal opening and the Scottish
dancers and band were to be present, it was decided that the school be
closed at 10:30 a.m.,  Wednesday.
It was found that manual training
supplies were needed. It was moved
by Mr, Henderson, seconded by Air.
McKinnon, that these supplies were
not to exceed $60.
There being no more business the
meeting adjourned.

Bout Harbor, former shipping point
of the P.C.C.M., will be completely
restored and wharfing facilities made
adequate to handle the expected busi-1
ness The old company track from
Alorden shaft, situated near the Nanaimo river, about two miles soulu-
east of South Wellington, will be re-1
laid, and a bridge built over the river
at a point near the location of the
former bridge, destroyed In 1922 by
high water. The track will also cir- i
cle round to South Wellington, and
will connect with the Esquimalt and
Nanaimo Railway track at a point
near the present rock-cut, about a
mile south of here. A siding will be
built.
Alorden Colliery, considered the
most up-to-date pit-head In tho Province, will be restored, and the concrete shaft head used, as well as the
old. and several new machine and
power buildings. The offices wiil
probably be located near the present
site.
Two new shafts will be opened ou
the opposite side of tlie river from
the   present   shaft.
These  three shafts,  It   is  expected,
would give an output of approximately   2,min   (oils   dally,   while   Suquasii
would also be converted Into a large [
scale proposition.
Alorden mine suddenly ceased paying Ils men regularly when the company got Into financial difficulties,
and when liens were taken oul. ceas-
ed operations entirely. For some
years It has lain Idle, though there
have been constant rumors that a reopening was planned, from time to
tlnte.
Tbe coal Is of the best grade In
Ibe district, nnd the seams ure good,
and, according to old employees,
practically untapped. The property
was nominally taken over by the
West Const Collieries aboul 1924, but
it is understood lhal private Interests are Behind this project. It Is
said that one of the principal men
will be nt the mine shortly.

NEW CAUSE FOR DIVORCE
BURYING A TOWN
ATQWN that never has anything to do in a
public way, is on the way to the cemetery.
Any citizen who will do nothing for his
town is helping to dig the grave.   A man that
j curses the town turnishes the coffin.   The man
| who is so selfish as to have no time from his busi-
| ness to give to city affairs is making the shroud.
The man who will not advertise is driving the
hearse.   The man who is always  pulling  back
from any public enterprise throws bouquets in
the grave.   The man who is so stingy as to bo
howling hard times, preaches the funeral, sings
the doxology, and thus the town lies buried from
all sorrow and care.
SO Ear as the domestic felicity of the socially
prominent Almirals of Denver is concerned,
l here is a Ilea in the ointment of their do-
iru'stie bliss—or several, perhaps hundreds of
them. Mrs. Clara May Almiral wants a divorce
from Leon Vincent Almirall, prominent tennis
player, because his automobile is infested with
ileas.
"Love nie, love my dog," returns Almirall, and
the lawyers have hopped off on flights of oratory
relating to divorce.
There have been many weird causes for divorce
applications, but Ileas in the automobile is a new
one. However, the silly season is on in full tilt
and, doubtless, liefore the summer is over this
record for flimsy complaints will be broken.
Hairpins in the automobile have caused many
divorces. In our opinion, fleas are a little less
incriminating.
A QUEER TENOR
STRANGE days are upon us.   Weird happenings are recorded.    Perhaps they are due
to sun spots,   Who knows?
Among the strangest of strange happenings
lately is the suit, in Madrid, of the Metropolitan
Opera Company against Miguel Fieta, Spanish
i tenor, for !j,19,000 because he refused to sing.
One wonders what sort of a tenor Senor Fieta
really is. He breaks all precedents with this
peculiar freak of temperament. It is usually
necessary to sue or actually arrest tenors to make
them stop singing. This is particularly true of
'professional tenors who live in apartment houses
or broadcasting tenors who hang out at radio
| stations.
i    A tenor will usually burst into song with or
without the slightest provocation.   The problem
i up to now has been to keep him quiet.   A tenor
who refuses to sing is a rare bird, indeed.

CANADA'S GREAT
TOMORROW
iExtract  from  "Empire  Mall,"  London. June.  1927.)
There is no more interesting coun-
try in ihe Empire than Canada; none
that has greater significance for the
British Commonwealth. We in Britain have much to learn about Canada
and It would be well if British business men—and. indeed, all good citizens—followed wilh intelligent interest ami Imagination the events of the
next Iwo or three month, in order to
understand more fully what Canada
really is and what it will eventually
become. We rejoice that the Prince
nl* Wales has made It the occasion of
a visit to Canada; it is a fitting recognition of ihe importance of the
event, ami promises a further stimulus to ilie growth of Empire sentiment.
The distinguished visitors and the
many oilier representatives of Britain
ami the Empire who attended the
celebrations and toured some part of
the Dominion, found n people happy,
diligent and prosperous, possessing a
confidence born of past achievements
and of knowledge of their power to
realize the wonderful possibilities
which the future has in store. Contact with Canadians in Canada will
be an education and an inspiration as
well.
Though  the Confederation celebrations was an occasion for retrospect, i
Canada  is    a    comparatively  young
country and looks to the future more |
than to the past.   Concerning its pro-j
gressive prosperity, no well-informed
Canadian Is a pessimist.   True, there
are large problems to be faced—thut
fundamental  one  of successful  land
settlement, in particular—but the determination and the increasing experience    necessary     for    overcoming
difficulties are apparent, and Canada ,
is nol being left to work out Its salvation unaided. Sixty years has witnessed a transition from sailing ship
and prairie wagon tn palatial ocean
liners and transcontinental railways.

MUCH MALIGNED
TELEPHONE GIRL
The most fascinating role she has
played on the screen is depicted by
Colleen Moore in "Orchids and Br
mine," coming to the Gaiety Theatre
on Friday and Saturday, September
nth and 10th.
A little telephone switchboard operator in the lobby of a huge New
York hotel Is the heroine of this
humorous  and  romantic  story.
"The telephone operator Is one of
the most interesting persons in tlle
United States," says Colleen, who
spent several hours daily for three
weeks in a Los Angeles main exchange, practicing for the part she
plays in the picture. "She must be
fast thinking and fast acting. She
must have the disposition of a saint.
She must have unlimited self-control.
In fact, she must be a very nice and
a very unusual person."
A large capacity for trials and
thrills Is demanded of the operator
In "Orchids antl Ermine" by Its author, Carey Wilson. Jack Mulhall
heads the supporting cast. Alfred
Santell directed the picture, which
John MeCormlck produced for First

Immigration
The careful selection ot prospective settlers, their training and placi
ment, the provision ot a well built
house and barn, the loan ot sufficient
capital to purchase a cow, chickens
and farm machinery, and the supervl
slon which aids them in adapting
themselves to the new environment,
offer strange contrasts to the diffi
cult conditions for immigrants which
prevailed in both Canada and the
United States until the close of the
nineteenth century. Just now, when
Immigration ls commanding renewed
attention lu Canada, an unusually
powerful novel has beeu published
portraying the experiences and hardships of the first colonies of Scandinavians In South Dakota, "Giants In
The Earth," by 0. E. Rolvaag. Originally published in Norway, it was
quickly recognized as one of the
classics of Norwegian literature and
has now been translated Into Swedish, Finnish, German and English.
The author, a professor ot Scandinavian literature In one of the Central
Western universities In the United
States, and himself an Immigrant,
translated the book Into English.
The exultant strength of the hero
in the conquest ot the plains, the joy
of the European peasant in bis ownership of a great stretch of Western
land .and the ever growing belief in
the rich future of the West constitute
the motive force which permits Per
Hansa to toll on persistently, amid
locust plagues, blizzards, poverty
and the dull monotony of the long
winter. For the woman, the hardships are even more vivid and lt is
only loyalty to him and the family
that holds her to the task since she
sees no corresponding vision of her
share ln tbe building of an empire.
Tho characters are living men and
women and the driving urge one fl.ids
in' the humble conflict of the daily
round constitutes the triumph of the
author's art. The dramatic Interplay
of heredity and environment in shaping each character makes the book
a great epic of the life of theWest.
As one compares life in the West
to-day with thnt of fifty years ago.
the conclusion becomes clear that the
railroad, the automobile, the telephone, the radio and agricultural
machinery have brought a change in
rural life no less material than that
which has taken place in the city.
Though, looking back over a hundred
years, the successful transformation
of the wild prairie into settled farms
seems to have been a spectacular triumph, the changes which are now iu
process are no more slow and no less
significant to the building of Canada
than that which has gone before. The
period of development of resources
and growth of population which lbs
ahead of Canada will eventually be
considered of outstanding significance
In the building of the nation.
Those who aro mast eager to see
the development of the country are
Inclined to deprecate the restrictions
on Immigration which are now in
force. They feel thnt the opportunities of the country are so great that
no one should be turned away and
they know that each new arrival
creates new demands for the products of our farms and factories. Self
interest, local pride and patriotism
combine to make them eager to see a
settled, prosperous nation. There is
but one sure method, however, of attracting settlers to a new country.
Those who arrive first must find conditions favorable to improving the'r
economic status ln order that they
will pass word on to their friends
that tiie country offers rich opportunities which made the new adjustments nnd trials of Immigration
worth while. Lack of employment,
failure, and great discouragement .Ml
the part of new arrivals will do much
to deter their friends. For tills reason u wise policy will permit only
such a number tn come as can lie
quickly und successfully absorbed.
When those in crowded foreign countries fully realize that Canada will
admit only those who have a fair
chance to succeed, admission to '.he
country becomes a boon for the be.-;.
rather than a possible last resort for
failures.
From the Canadian viewpoint tharc
Is another phase of this subject which
is of prime Import. The people who
are granted admission will be thc
Fathers of tbe Canada of the future.
Wise selection Is the only means for
controlling the future citizenship of
thc nation. It Is a matter of satisfaction that so large a proportion of
those who are now arriving should
be of British stock. Naturally, It follows that the best of opportunities
must bc provided for the younger people who are already here, so that
they will not bo Interested In going
elsewhere. Under such circumstances, the policy of admitting people
only as rapidly as they can find satisfactory employment Is the one most
expansion of the country. Too great
likely to maintain a steady, healthy
enthusiasm should he checked just
as severely as too much restriction.
On the one hand, too great laxity
leads to nn over-large supply o(
labor, and unemployment is not a
good advertisement for the country,
but on the other, undue restriction
retards growth and hampers the expansion of industrial activity. Under
such circumstances, the policy of admissions must be governed with a
broad view of the immediate exigencies of the situation.
During the flrst live months of 1927,
the number of settlers who arrived
ln Canada exceeded the number arriving in tho corresponding period of
1926 by 23,269, or an Increase of
64.47s. This rise in the volume ot
immigration Is the normal aftermath
of the prosperity which began in 1925.
If the excellent crops which are now
in prospect materialize, a further rise
In monthly arrivals Is to be anticipated during 1928.
