MERVILLE SETTLERS TO
ENTER INTO A NEW
AGREEMENT OF SALE
P. P. HARRISON, M.L.A., DEVOTES GREAT DEAL OF TIME
ON REVALUATION IN INTERESTS OF SOLDIER
SETTLERS IN MERVILLE DISTRICT
For some years past the Settlers of
Mervllle have been dissatisfied with
the price which, in the long run. they
would have to pay In order to obtain
a clear title to tbelr respective holdings. As a result of .continued agitation made by the Settlers of Merville
and by the citizens of Courtenay. the
Government caused all thc Merville
Drnaht+land *o-te-r»Ti>lues1-by-three Commissioners appointed for that particular
purpose, but while the finding of the
Commissioners in that respect seemed
sound, yet fur a diversity of reasons
it was subsequently felt lhat the purchase price, based on such revaluation
was quite beyond the financial means
of the Settlers and that when they
eventually paid in full, the amount
would be so large thnt It would be
impossible to resell except at a very
heavy loss.
In  the year 1924  the  problem  of
securing  some  equitable  adjustment

ductlon ln the purchase price and by
cancelling all claims for interest. The
justification for a substantial reduction lying primarily in the fact that
on all resale of holdings the price
obtained was considerably lower than
the amount which the original bolder
would have had to pay In order to
secure a clear title. Latterly as &
result of the representations made by
Mr. Harrison, the Government requested General V. Odium. M.L.A.,
and Captain Ian .McKenzie. M.L.A., to
meet nnd confer with the local Member and report* their recommendntlon.
As a result the Sell lets will liow have
the opportunity of entering into new
Agreements nf Snle based no un
altered purchase price, which will be
equivalent lo Ihe cancellation of nil
Interest claims to December 31st, 1026
and In addition a reduction of approximately 35 per cent from Iho
present net purchase price. Terms
of payment will be 10 per cent cosh
and the balance over 15 yenrs al 7
per cent Interest. The 10 per cent
cash payment to he made within til)
days and any payments already made
to the Board to be credited against
the same.
Our local Member, for his persistent and intelligent efforts, and the
Government In acceding to the recommendation in a very liberal manner,
deserve   unstinted   praise   not   only

Copper developments* In B. C. loom
In pprt so I for 11)27. It is quite possible that Consolidated Smelters may
extend Ils copper operations to tlle
Pacific Coast and erect a smelter
there.'
Considerable Interest has been
shown during the past year in the
future of Coast Copper Company Ltd.
This mine is located in the west coast
of Vancouver Island and is controlled
by the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company. The capital is $-1,000,-
000. consisting of 200.000 shares of a
par value of $5, of whicli the Consolidated own approximately 110.000
shares. There Is an issue of $750,000
ten-year 0 per cent, convertible bonds,
due 1927. which is entirely owned by
the Consolidated.
During the past ten years a 'great
amount of work lias been done on this
property, and it is reported that the
work lias produced some splendid
results. Very little definite information can lie given In regard to the ore
which has been ^blocked out. but
according to reports by those who
have visited (lie property, the tonnage
already developed must be of great
extent.
A significant fact lu regard to this
property is the statement made at the
last annual meeting of the Consolidated .Mining Ss Smelting Company in
the manager of mines' report under
"controlled properties" that:
"On the Coast Copper development
wnrlfc was continued and comprised
further extensions of the north anil
souiii drift wltb orosscutttng and diamond drilling. Itesulis were again
encouraging,"
This statement, in tlie face of tlie
expenditure of probably millions of
dollars, mid'nlso Hie facl that at the
present time a large number of men
are still employed on building roads,
railway and ihe further development
of the properly would appear to he
evidence of ihe great value placed on
Const Copper "Mine by thc management of the Consolidated.
li. lias been thought for sonic time
that the future plans of tho Consolidated Include the building of a large
smelter on the Pacific Coast, and in
tills development it Is expected that
the shareholders ol the Coast Copper
Company will participate. In this
connection the Sunloch Mines would
be taken Into consideration. Sunloch
Mines Limited, capital $1,000,000, par
$1, was acquired In 1917 by the Consolidated Mining * Smelting Company
Burns' Anniversary
Tuesday, Jan. 25
Elaborate arrangements are under
way for the annual banquet of the
Courtenay Burns' Club, to be held at
the Courtenay Hotel on the evening of
Tuesday, January 20t.li. at half past
eight o'clock.
As the result of executive meetings,
a splendid toast list has been completed, with Paul P. Harrison, M.L.A.,
responding to the toast of British
Columbia! Robert Strnclinn of Cumlierland making the principal address
of the evening, relative to the life of
the famous Scots poet, with other
speakers given prominent places on
the lengthy puBgraramo.
The haggis will lie piped In with
Royal honors In keeping with century
old custom.
Owing to the restricted accomodation at the Courtenay hotel, only
places can be laid for seventy-five
guests and already that number has
made applications for tickets. The
executive committee determined to
give preference to Scotsmen and those
having connection with the Land* of

that Cumlierland Scots desiring tickets make application to the following

authentic and startling account of the
life secrets of the original Colonel
Wm. V. Cody, conies to the Ilo-Ilo
Theatre as a serial picture in ten
parts, chapter one of which will be
shown Monday, Jan. Srd. According
to announcement in last week's issue

brilliant figure of the old West, bristling wilh a thousand and one thrills
of the great conquest of the open
country. Through it all runs the engaging love story of fascinating "Doris," tricked on all sides by villainy
and craft, but saved from perilous
situations by her own pioneer grit
and by thc dauntless courage of a
man who feared neither red man.
hardship, element nor beast!

THE ROSE VASE AND The things that last
THE GARBAGE CAN are the things that
are pure and clean.
It would be well if the writers oi' books, the painters of pictures and the producers of plays would
learn this wholesome fact. The great books that
have lived have been clean books. Books that
told great stories of human endeavor, books that
are founded upon the moral law. The greatest
paintings are paintings of the eternal rocks anil
the seas and the homely things, The plays that
have made fortunes for their producers and the
authors have been clean plays like "Abie's Irish
R»se," "Lightning," "W«jy Down East." While
such plays may not arouse the enthusiasm of the
critics as high theatrical art, yet they hold their
long sway because they are fundamentally wholesome and human.
There is a class of people who hold that anything that is unpleasant or vulgar is necessarily
real. They read the novels with a low sex appeal,
they patronize the plays with risque situations
and they decorate their walls with pictures in
the nude. But they are mistaken. A thing does
not have to offend one's sense of decency in order
to be realistic. The flowers on the library table
are just as real as the dirty dishwater in the kitchen sink. And for one to say that the kitchen
sink is truth while the flowers in the vase are a
falsehood, is absurd.
There is so much of beauty and purity in the
life that surges all about us that we wonder how
our taste could have become so depraved. With
the breeze wafting the scent of the new mown
hay across the field, why do some folks persist
in lolling on a manure pile back of the barn?
With the fragrance of roses to be so easily had,
why do so many people hang over the garbage
can?
For many years a great part of humanity has
been casting aside the roses and the wheat and
gathering up the thorns and chaff. Their ultimate harvest is just what you would expect from
such a foolish reaping. Among the leaves you
are going to turn over with the new year let this
be one: To hunt for the beautiful, wholesome,
worthwhile things along the pathway of life, and
let the weeds and poison ivy alone. Let your
walk be in the pure air of the woodland and away
from the pig pens.
THE NOSE The nose is intended for breathing,
the mouth for speaking and eating. Who has ever seen a horse breathing otherwise than through his nostrils? Minute scientific investigation has revealed the fact that the
number of people who breathe through their
nostrils are becoming gradually but surely fewer
in number. The consequence is that the nostrils
decrease in size, while it has been found that the
prevailing nose is quite an inferior orgain to that
of our forefathers.
Doctors at the present time are frequently
asked to operate on noses and to enlarge them.
Their owners have found that they do not fulfill
their functions as well as they used to. It is
beginning to be feared by scientific people that
if matters grow much worse we shall lose the use
of oui> nasal organs entirely.
It is a well known physiological fact that unused muscles and bones gradually disappear, Fish
who live in the dark, for instance, or the mole,
who resides underground, become blind. Thus,
if we cease to use our noses for breathing, they
will cease to exist.   They will become superflous!
One possible advantage, however, might come
with the disappearance of the nose—so many
people could no longer go around poking their
noses into other people's business.
tfWvVa'K
HAPPY DAYS Were the good old times of yesterday brighter and better than
the days of now? The real fact is that the details of disappointments, the little troubles all are
forgotten after a time. Today the cares of other
years seem small. In the years to come our present perplexities will all be withered with the passing of time. In coming years you will recall only
the roses of beautiful remembrance. The thorn-
pricks will all be healed.
Compare the old "swimmin' hole" with the
beautiful tiled bathroom of today. You recall the
fun of diving in the old pool, but you have forgotten the sting of the sunburn and the smart of
the stone bruise.
Today we cut coupons, then we cut cord-woofl
and get up an appetite. We remember the food
but we forget the weight of the axe.
The Winter Sports Centre of America
\U inter reigns supreme in Quebec onco again. The
™* romantic and historic city of Quebec gives itself
up as in former years to the Invigorating joy of winter sports. They take it seriously there and they
have every reason for doing so. Perhaps at nn other
centre on the continent are tho conditions so ideal.
Plenty of snow, a keen steady climate, hills to ski
down and great slides for toboggans. The Chateau
Frontenac, owned by the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company, is undoubtedly the great centre of winter
sports in Quebec. The above photograph shows the
huge slide that provides: endless amusement for all.
To the left on the heights stands the Chateau, and tn
this famous hostelry visitors come from far and wide
to take part in the winter festivities.
The first outstanding events are scheduled tu take
place during the last week in December. In January
the inter-collegiate ski meet will be held, at which
it is expected, as was the case last season, teams from
many of the Canadian nnd American universities will
take part. The open championship ski jumping con-
tert of the Frontenac Winter Sport= Association will
be held in the third week of February, the silver
trophy of which is now in the possession of the Ottawa
Ski Club. There will also be held in February the
•ki championship meet of the city of Quebec,
Skating is being specially catered to. There nre
being built at present a dozen large open air rinks
in the city, while the Canadian (open to the world I
apssed skating championships, set for February 4 nnd
6, will bring tho cream of Canadian and American
speed skaters to Quebec.
Entries are already coming in from eastern Canada and the United States for the fourth eastern international dog sled derby to be held February 21-28.
Among those already received are H. I. Sutton, of
Chicago; Ontario Paper Co., Quebec; Price Bros., of
Quebec (two teams); P. J. Molloy, Berlin, N.H.; and
the Poquot Company, Quebec. Officials of thc Enst-
ern International Dog Sled Derby Club expect at least
26 of the finest teams on the continent will be entered
this year.
Much earlier than this, however, the famous Duf-
I'erin Terrace toboggan slide will be in full operation
well in advance of the Christmas^season. A new attraction in thc form of a sled and bob-sled run will
be built by the Frontenac Winter Sports Association
on thc old city walls and will finish on the Esplnnadc.
Visitors will, therefore, be able to enjoy this exhilarating sport without even going outside the limits
of Old Quebec.
Hockey will provide the most rabid fan with all
he can desire. The new Quebec team, "The Bulldogs,"
will put a strong line-up in action ngainst a United
Stntes circuit, including New Haven, Springfield,
Mass., Providence and Boston, in the new Quebec-
American League. "Sons of Ireland," old favorites
in the amateur ranks, and a sterling team, will bo
playing when the "Bulldogs" are out of town, while
there arc also tennis running in the Quebec City
league, Nationals League and others.
The curling bonspiel in Februnry will bring rinks
from ail over the continent to "sweep" for the handsome trophies up for competition. Nor should the
snowshoc clubs be forgotten, of which Quebec City
possesses eight. Their spectacular appearance in tthe
old-time French-Canadian costume? add greatly to'the
picturesqucnesa of the city ami tn itn appeal to
visitors.
The Quebec Winter Sports Association, under
whose auspices the season will be operated, hnve
already subscriptions in excess of Sill,(100 to date
from citizens, which will go far towards assuring a
successful scasun.
We extend
to you this
friendly
greeting,   that
throughout
the
New Year
just
approaching,
Health
Happiness and
Prosperity
may be your
unfailing lot
We take this opportunity of expressing to you our
deepest appreciation of the cordial relationship that
has existed between us in the past.
May it Continue indefinitely.

A laugh Is just like music
It freshens up the day.
It tips the peaks of life with light
And drives the clouds away.
The soul grows glad that hears It
And feels its courage strong.
A laugh Is just like sunshine
For cheering folks along.

in his own way.   And, of course, ever
present   is   Silver.   Jones'   intelligent
horse   and   companion   thrill   maker,
who  contributes   new   feats   of  skill
and daring under the guiding rein of
' his master.

Syd Crossley, the "Peaceful" Perkins in "The Unknown Soldier," tlle

j Gaiety Theatre on Tuesday, was a
British private for three years In
France. As a member of the signal
corps of the Royal Engineers', he
soldiered in France and Germany,
living many ot the thrilling episodes
he portrays In the picture.
During his war service, Crossley's
services behind the lines were in constant demand for entertaining the
troops. After the war Crossely spent
a year and a half in a stock company
at Victoria, flrltlsh Columbia. He
entered tiie movies in Hollywood 3

HISTORIC LONDON
FILM DRAMATIZED
"Make absurdity plausible!"
This was the advice given by Victor Schertzinger to Sammy Blum,
comedy relief character In "Siberia,"
Fox Films version of Bartley Campbell's remarkable play ot darkest
Russia, at the Gaiety Theatre Wednesday and Thursday aud at the Ilo-
Ilo theatre Friday and Saturday of
next week. In this Fox epic Alma
Rubens and Edmund Lowe ure starred.
"I mean," said Schertzinger, "that
we do not want to insist upon comedy. Comedy, if It Is to be convincing and mirth-provoking must seem
spontaneous. It is not grafted upon
tlie action. It grows out of it. We
must make absurdity plausible if we
would produce the rightful effect of
comedy."
Blum, who studied under David
Uclasco In New York succeeds so well
In doing this very thing that his comedy touches seem entirely natural.
Anglo-Americans will thrill with
pride when they view the latest Colleen Moore Offering, "We .Moderns,"
to be shown at the Gaiety ou Aloiultiy
and at the llo-llo on Tuesday of nt'Xl

backgrounds, Miss Moore on her recent trip to Europe combined some

What is hailed as one of the most
realistic lights ever staged before the
camera was staged recently hy Norman Kerry and Lionel Barrymore for
"Thc Barrier," Rex Beach's famous
novel, directed for Metro-Goldwyn-
Mnyer by George Hill.
Kerry and Barrymore staged the
light on thu rolling deck of a ship at
sea, and no Queensberry rules were
invoked. Starting as a fistic bout, It
wound up as a savage llfc-nnd-deiitb
struggle, in whicli even a knife wus
thrown, as described in the original
story. "The Barrier" conies lo the
Gaiety Theatre next Friday and Saturday, January 7 and 8.
Kerry is known as an amateur
boxer, and as referee of the amateur
lights held Wednesday noons at the
M-G-M studio, but both he and Barrymore astounded George Hill, the
director, and the rest of the cast in
the realistic fight scene, which HIM
believes will establish a new tradition
for screen battles.
They fought for the girl! Her
father—and the man she loved—battling like men of old, with honor and
life itself at stake! If you dun't thrill
easily, try this film! It will lift you
out of your seat with its sweeping
drama, its tremendous human appeal.
Elemental! Gripping! Beautiful! and
based on Rex Beach's great novel of
tlie Yukon—now a colossal Hlni epic
of the gold rush!

Admission Into Canada of fishermen
on the same terms as agriculturists
and farm laborers is sought by the
Alberni Board of Trade claiming that
an unfair provision of the Canadian
Immigration Act discriminates against
fishermen.
Progress on the West Coast will be
retarded for years unless the act Is
broadened to apply to fishermen, the
board claims, as with more fishermen
and more fish gieater storage and
transportation could more easily be
commanded. Greater catches would
compel the transportation companies
and even the Government to step in
nnd provide facilities that are urgently needed.
What the West CoaBt really needs,
it is argued, Is fishermen or agriculturalists who are also fishermen.
Under an order-ln-councll passed In
April, 1923, Canada admits only
Immigrants who are bona fide agriculturalists or farm laborers, domestic servants and wives and children
of residents In Canada.
The board has forwarded a resolution to A. W. Neill, M.P., that the act
be amended to admit bona fide fishermen of white or Caucasian blood.
Many fishermen from Scotland. Norway, Sweden and the United States
would locate and become residents of
Vancouver Island if they were admitted on the same basis of farmers,
it was claimed. The phenomenal run
of Winter Spring salmon during the
month of December in Barclay Sound,
Alberni Canal and the West Coast ot
the Island has emphasized the need
ot more fishermen.

Some one said there was a mild
form of influenza marring the joys of
the Christmas vacation. There Is
nothing mild about it, of that we can
safely assure our readers. The writer
of tlie few personal notes In the
Islander this week Is doing his stuff • morl'ow (Saturday)
at home with feet in a mustard bath | ^	
and a suspicious-looking bottle within easy reach. He feels like (!•?'•!)
and is longing for the good old sunshine again. No friends, this epidemic of the "flu" is nor. mild by any
means. Maybe a few calls with a
congenial Scotchman this evening
which we have planned, . will help
materially to put us on our feet once
again.
