Word Of Tourists
Canucks   Being  Royally  Entertained
In New Zealand
Jack Monaghan, the old Cumberland United Soccer player, now on
lour in New Zealand with the All-
Star Canadian Soccer team, writing
to a friend in Cumberland, pays a
glowing tribute to the people of New
Zealand. The Canadians, says Mou-
ughan, are being entertained royally
and ull are having u wonderful limo.
An account of the first game played
by tlie Canadians Is also sent, whicli
we take much pleasure in publishing; It Is taken from "The Wanganui
Herald,' of Thursday,  Muy 26th:
"The Canadian soccer team to-day
opened the Dominion tour by defeating Taranaki lit a brilliant exhibition
of tiie code by 10 goals to 1. The
game was played in line weather before a crowd of about 4000.
"From the blowing of the whistle
the Canadians set up a rattling pace
Hint kept Taranaki defending strenuously In Hie region of tlieir own
goal und within a quarter of an hour
Canada had built up a formidable
pile of points. From the start, too,
the public were treated to an exposition of bruin work and skill that was
an education in itself. By half time
the Bcore was nine goals to nil in
favour of Canada, and In the second
spell the tourists obviously eased up,
being content to give Taranaki a
chance and at the same time afford
their own team good practice.
"The most impressive feature of
the game was the accuracy of the
Canadians' bend work and dribbling,
made doubly effective by the manner
in which each player was always In
position to receive a pass from bis
team mate. The visitors specialized
in short, dribbling kicks, by means
of which, with a defl turn of thc foot
they were able to beat an opponent
time and again.
Visitors' Smart Work
"To see them manoeuvre Into position and then follow up with a quick
cross-kick from the side line with a
sharp driving shot to tlie net that
often found its mark was ns much a
lesson to the public as it was to tlle

land us told to Lelnnd Harrison
by several Old Timers.
It is hoped that this article will
serve in a small way as a remembrance to the early pioneers who)
helped develop the flrst mines at
Union, the exploitation of which led
to the building of Union, Cumberland
and Union Bay, to tlie "old timers"
who have assisted directly and Indirectly In the development of Cumberland.
It must be borne in mind thnt the
first settlement In this vlclntiy wus
situated down Camp, or Union as it
is more popularly known, before
Cumberland was ever thought or.
The early history of Union dates
from the year I860, when a party of
prospectors, among whom I believe
wns Mr. Sam Cliffe, John Dick,
Thorn, Frank Little and others, came
to these parts und discovered coal
in the neighborhood of Chinatown.
A company styled the Union Colliery
Co. was formed. Later this group
of prospectors with the exception of
Frank Little sold out to Dunsmuir.
Tlie men who thus sold out contracted to build a road to Royston In order to haul coal and at Royston n
wharf was built not far distant from
the  present  wharf.
Three mines were opened up. Nos.
1, 2 and 3. No. 1 was a slope In No.
1 Japtown, situated on the left hand
side of the railway tracks going towards the Luke. Numbers 2 and 3
were situated about Chinatown. One
of these mines was known as tho
Chinese Tunnels with Sam Whyte ill
charge, father of Charlie Whyte recently deceased. The debris from
No. 3 mine may be seen to-day from
the wooden sidewalk down Camp,
which overlooks the Chinese garden
wherein the mine is situated. The
other mine is situated nt the end ot
Chinatown just before ono comes to
Chinese Creek  and  the  debris  from

To-day Canada is celebrating, with
Iltting pomp and acclaim, the Diamond
Jubilee of Confederation. It is sixty
years since the majestic and. nne
trusts, the lasting, fabric of our constitution wus built.
The builders, as is inevitable, have
passed away. But their mighty and
beneflclcnt work remains. For high
emprises do not perish when great
leaders pass. It is thc part of that
national spirit that men term patriotism to keep alive great principles and
great causes, Irrespective of tlle Inevitable accidents thnt befall grout
men. It Is tlle virtue, ns lt Is Ihe
glory, of great statesmen that they
Impress their lnsprlations on the
generations that succeed them. They
plant the acorn. It sends its roots
deep into the soil. It stretches Its
branches to the sky long after its
planter is in the dust. And so It is
with great principles, great causes.
great achievements, and great leaders.
The accomplishment of Confederation,
and the ideal from which it sprang,
are grafted and engrained forever not
merely on the policy, but on tho character of the Canadian people. Confederation—*he making of a unified
nation—ls an achievement beyond tho
reach of all changes of fortune and
all circumstances ot fate. It is a work
that stands safe and secure—safe
from the waters of oblivion, safe from
the tide of time.
Sixty years ago! Cartier, Macdonald, Brown, Tupper, Tilley, Gait, Mow-
att, D'Arcy McGee, and the rest of
them—how the illustrious names of
the mighty dead crowd to one's lips
in this hour. Verily, there were giiints
In those days. But "Sursum corda!"
The nation still lives that produced
tbem, and that shall yet, iu t.he
Providence of God, produce many like
What wns the purpose of Confederation? What the motive that animated those who brough It about?
We cun find llie answer In the eloquent language of D'Arcy McGee.
Whnt was mainly responsible for
bringing about Confederation wus tlie
"sole, single desire for the Increase,
prosperity, freedom, nud honor, of
this Incipient Northern nation." snid

Much   Apparatus   and   Equip

The Initial test made by the Broadcasting Committee In charge of the
radio programme for the Jubilee of
Confederation, has proven to be a
marked success, and It Is anticipated
that further tests to be made at the
end of the present week, and again
shortly liefore the Ilrst of July, will
demonstrate the practicability of one
of the mosl ambitious "tit In" schemes
ever attempted on the North American Continent or elsewhere. The lirst
test was made over the week-end und

Quebec, Ontario and Munitobn as far
as Winnipeg, lt now remains to tost
the system eastward and westward.

the most difficult part of the feat has
been accomplished, and the success
of the objective planned Is practically assured. The motto of the Broadcasting ' Committee may be summed

work of radio communication is that

the local broadcasting stations twenty in number as plainly at Halifax
and Vancouver ns it will be at the
Central broadcasting point at Ottawa. It is also the objective of the
scheme that the programme will lit
heard overseus over high-power,
short-wave transmission from the
Canadian Marconi Beam station at
Drummondvllle, Que. The actual
transmitter which will he used will
he the one which is being installed
to communicate with Australia. The
Beam attachment will not be used,
so that the broadcast .instead of being concentrated in the direction of
Australia will be heard lu all directions. The wave length used will be
2(1.18   metres.
The connecting up of the local stations has involved setting up and Die
linking up of telephone lines from
coast to coast. Js'o individual telephone company operates clean
through, and in fact on such lengthy
sections as those between Levis and
Moncton, Sudbury and Winnipeg, and
Calgary and Kamloops no telephone
lines ui all exist. The flrst-named
space will be covered through the
medium of the Canadian National
telegraphs, and the two latter through
the medium of the Canadian Pacific.

project, secured the most willing co- j
operation irom all telegraph and tele-1
phone companies Interested .and lhat
every   facility  In   the  way  of plant,
lines .and personnel lias been placed
al   its  desposal.    In  addition  to  the
two railway companies there have cooperated in the scheme the Maritime

The control lines will consist
chiefly ol* telegraph circuits from
cosal lo const, and will bc supplied |
by the iwo groin railway companies.
All lines used are, ot course, commercial lines, and It Is not possible |
to obtain full use of them for test-1
Ing purposes. The programme of!
tests whereby the circuits will be
built up in all directions from Otta-I
wu bus. however, been entirely ar-
ranged. During Sunday's test it was
found thui the quality of the voice
heard us fur west as Winnipeg wns I
excellent. Through this teal the
broadcasting stations In ihe provln-
ees of Quebec. Ontario and Manitoba I
were successfully tied In. The engineers nre now engaged on the next
extension, which will be from Levis
io Moncton, thence cast, and from
Winnipeg io Calgary, and Edmonton,
thenco west. This work is now on.
and il Is expected thut experts will
lie in n position to make further
tests by the end of llie present week.
In ihe event of these tests proving
successful, and it being found practicable to equalize the lines for
broadcast transmission, the next tost
will be made on Sunday. June 86th,
when the main line will be established from Calgary to Vancouver,
over the C.P.R. and II. I'. Telephone
lines und the Northern standby circuit   from   Winnipeg  via   Wainwright
through Edmonton will be extended
from Moncton over the National Railways ,aud the Maritime lines to Halifax and  the Atlantic.
This is the first time that an attempt has been made in Canada to
establish a net-work of radio from
east to west.
A total of 169 employees will be in
charge of the supervision from coast
to coast. Twenty broadcasting stations are involved, with the centre
at Ottawa. There will be 81,660
miles of line, and fifty-three repeaters will he in use ulong the way.
These ure designed to amplify the
sounds ni approximately 200 mile
No distinction is being made between stations which exist In various
cities, share Ilie same wave length.
The broadcast will be called a "joint
hrodacust" of ull the vnrious stations without mention of mimes. The
final objective of the Committee is to
broadcast through stations as follows:
Halifax, N.S,, Moncton, N.B., Quebec (High Power), Ottawn, Toronto,
Aurora, London, Winnipeg, Regina.
Moose Jaw, Saskatoon, Calgary, Red
Doer, Edmonton, Vancouver, New
Wesi minster aud Victoria. The east

The broadcast will consist of the
inauguration ceremonies of Confederation held on Parliament Hill on
July 1st, 11 a.m.. Eastern Standard
time, when there will be a fifteen
minute programme on the carillon
of the Peace Tower, brief speeches,
and the playing of massed bands,
concluded by the singing of 0 Canada. At 2 o'clock (Eastern Standard
time) the official programme will be
broadcasted. But the real programme so far as the broadcasting is
concerned will commence at 9:30
(Eastern Standard Time). It will be
delivered from a studio in the Parliament Buildings, and it Is expected
will be heard just as plainly In Victoria or Halifax us it will be. either
over the public address system or on
local radio receivers at the Caullul.
It ls anticipated thut the programme
in the evening will continue well Into the morning of the second of

pleasant job of freighting the giant
powder used at the mine, over this
same  trail.
The early pioneers came by boat
to Royston and later when tlle railway was built they travelled in boxcars from Union Bay to Union. There
was mall only once a week in those
days and the whole population of Union would flock to Cram's mill to
receive their mail. Among those
pioneers of 38 and 40 years ago we
may mention Miss "Alt" Walker,
now Mrs. Mnckintyre, Sandy Walker,
Bob Grunt, Geo. Clinton, Charlie
Whyte, Sain Whyte, "Jock' Smith, the
Sam Davies, senior and junior, T. D.
MacLean, Dave Walker, Mrs. Smith,
Nibs Walker and Johnny Miller,
Pete Bono, F. Scavadu, Frank Crawford and Pete McNiven.
The ilrst white woman to live In
Union was Mrs. M. Smith, mentioned
above, sister of "Jock" Thomson.
The lirst baby born in Cumberland
wus a girl lo Bardizona and two days
later a son (William) to Mr. and Mrs.
Jack Thomson, June 1894. This,
however, was at the time Cumberland
was surveyed but was not yet an incorporated city. I may mention in
passing that "Jack's Point" on Co-
mov Lake was named after "Wee
Jackie Smith."
In connection witli the mines al
Union there was an old engine by the
name of McGinty. This veritable
coffee-pot on wheels used to haul
the miners to work and haul coal
cars, but her limit of haulage was
one coal car. More often, however,
when old McGinty started up grade
the coal cur would take McGinty
down again. Neill MacFuddeu said
that sometimes the crew would get
out and booBt McGinty over the grade
but the writer suspects that Mac-
Fadden Is pulling his leg. It Is believed that the hell from the .McGinty wus placed in tlie present public
How many remember the time
when Harry Waterfleld's house used
to be church, dance hull, school
house und community amusement
centre? When G. Clinton and Lyle
Smitbcrs used to ride iu the engine
to Union Bay to get the payroll?
When Bob Grant logged oft the present site ot Cumberland with the aid
of oxen? When Pete MacNiven was
given the Socialist nomination but
never ran? it may bo noted thut ho
wus the first mun to be nominated
on otlier than a Liberal of Tory
ticket. When MncKnight and Bob
Grant were made J. P.'s by Joe
Hunter, Cumberland's first member
of Parliament?
Now as regards Cumberland itself.
Prior to the time when No. 4 Mine
was opened up, Sam Whyte and Lyle
Smitbcrs prospected around Comox
Lake. They found u seam of coal
near the present No. 4 seam but it
was of Inferior grade. It Is, however,
to the discovery of No. 4 Mine and
not directly to the Union mines that
we owe the present City of Cumberland. The Lake mine, or No. 4, was
the first mine which gave really good
coal, which really paid, and when
production Increased, settlers came
Now, with the advent of settlers
it was decided to build a town on
higher ground. In 1893 Dunsmuir
had the ground surveyed off and sold
the lots to settlers. A man by the
name of Frank Smitli from Cumberland County, England, surveyed it.
Smith named the town after his native county and also gave most of tho
streets their present names, such us
Derwent, Penrith, etc. That is liow
Cumberland Ilrst began. Later, Cumberland was Incorporated, Jan. 1st,
1898. The first mayor and council

Seldom haa a nobler purpose been
expounded in nobler language. We
are reaping where .McGee and his co-
adjudicators sowed. And it is surely
not unfitting that, in this year of
Jubilee, the nation, as a whole, should
he doing what In her lies to redress
the inequalities of which the three
provinces hy the Sea have had cause
to complain.
It is at such a juncture as this that
one cannot avoid reflecting on the
progres which the country has made
in the past sixty years, and perhaps
forecasting somewhat of what may
bo in prospect for our young and
aaresive country down the long vista
of the years to be.
Tbere is no formula for judging tbe
course of national development. The
most cautious predictions may prove
extravagant, and the must optimistic
may fall far short of actual accomplishment,
Sixty-three years ago. President
Lincoln pointed out, in his second
annual mesage to Congress, tiiat the
population of the United Slates in
102U would exceed 180,000,1)00, if the
rale of increase continued to be as
great as it bad been between 1790 and
1SC0. We all kuow that, in almost
every direction, the United States did
make amazing progress, but its population in 1920 failed, by some 8ii.-
000,00(1. to reach the number mentioned  in   Lincoln's message.
Again, achievement may just as
strikingly outstrip anticipation. In
1898, the world-renowned scientist.
Sir William Crookes, delivered an impressive statement on the "Wheat
Problem'' in bis presidential address
before the British Assocaition for the
Advancement of Science. Keviewing
the prospective sources from which
the world might draw increased supplies of wheat, he stated thai, " the
most trustworthy estimates give Canada a wheat area of not more than
G.000,000 acres in the next twelve
years, increasing to a maximum of
12,000,000 acres in twenty-five years."
The passing of twenty-five years from
thc date of his making that statement
showed his estimate to be far loo conservative. Canada's wheat area not
only reached the estimated maximum
of 12,000,000 acres considerably in advance of expectation, but continued to
increase. Today, an area of approximately 22,000,000 acres in sown to
wheat, aud Western Canada still possesses many atlitional millions of
acres of uncultivated land.
But, though thc rate and course of
national growth necessarily baffle all
prophecy, it is yet undoubted and indubitable that Canada has thus far
realized but a small measure of her
potential stature in industry and commerce. With tbe most generous resources of the field, the forest, the
mine, the waterfall and the sea; with
extensive systems of rail and  water
transportation, commanding gateways
for the commerce of the Atlantic and
the Pacific; with a geographical situation favorable to trade with the
populous markets of Western Europe
and the Orient; with a friendly nation
of more than 100,000,000 of like
language and customs to ourselves us
our neighbors lo lite south; with the
golden ties of kinship aud sentiment
that indissulubly unite us with that
mighty and majestic, yet motherly,
land whicli has learned, as bas no
other nation in history, the secret of
combining security with progress and
liberty with law; witli sound institutions of Government; with far-reaching and beneiictent political associations; tiie Dominion ot Canada, in this
her year of Jubilee, faces a career in
whicb ber period of economic youth
and growth has a lengthy and prosperous course lo run.
Great potential wealth and the incoming ni' a huge population—these
things are obviously ours. Yet we
do well to remember lhat, in themselves, such material things do not
make a nation, In nation-making
and nation-building, it is character
that counts more than aught else, and
we shall ever do well to maintain,
unimpaired and un impoverished, the
hardy, strong character of those who
laid the foundations of this unified
nation, Tbe future wil bold for us,
beyond all question, its problems and
perplexities, ile it ours to meet them
with tbe same courage and resolution
as those who have gone before met
the perplexities and problems of their
"God of our Fathers, be the God
"Of our  succeeding  race."

satisfactory, from the viewpoint of
the spectators as well as by tbe boxers   themselves.
Cliffe who in the past six months
has been handicapped by reason of
tooth infection, necessitating the extraction of many molars, is rapidly
coming back to his old-time form and
those who have daily watched bis
strenuous training stunts are convinced that he has more than regained his punch, hitting power and judgment of distance, three necessary' adjuncts in the game of hit-and-miss.
Although he failed to secure a heavier training partner for his preliminary work, tbe help given him by
battling Flynn, of Uellingham, has
worked wonders aud increased his
speed of footwork, a department in
which, It must be confessed, he bas
hitherto failed to shine.
Cumberland  fans  who  saw  Belan
ger lose to the Courtenay lad la-it j
year and who later on, witnessed his
winning bouts in Vancouver, aro |
agreed that the French-Canadian has
more than an even chance to win out
Saturday night. He has a stronger
"kick" than the Western representative and although he had formerly
been prone to "telegraph" his punches, he will be seen to deliver pistonlike drives straight from the shoulder, each delivery carrying a world
of steam behind the blow. Both are
out to win by the short route and
as much in the way of lucrative engagements will be offered to the winner, no time will be cut to waste in
preliminary sparring or "feeling
In view  of the importance of the
battle, the Cumberland Islander presents   its   readers   with   the
measurements,   etc.,   of   the
ants, a record that should prove interesting for future reference:
