the question of the pollution of angling waters was thoroughly discussed
by the meeting, going on record as
favoring a campaign lo prevent all
campers and others from throwing
tin cans and other rubbish into
streams and lakes, this and such materials as sewage and refuse from
canneries extract oxygen from the
waters and make life in them impossible.
The meeting also went on record
as objecting to the abolition of salmon
roe and asked that the streams and
lakes in tlie Comox Electoral district
be left open ns in former years.
Afler considerable discussion the
club recommended thnt the opening
hour for duck shooting be one hour

.vere tcday to approach the government in respect to Vancouver Island.
He appealed for unity on the part of
all the boards of trade for the benefit
:>l the whole. Vancouver Island, he
•aid, had paid into the provincial government treasury sums of money far
larger than they had received back In
the way of expenditures. The timber
of Vancouver Island was the item
which was putting the government
"over the top" financially. The government was now beiiif; given the Peace
EUver block without a dollar of cosf
and which would immediately give the
province a revenue of half a million
dollars per year and for the first time
in its life the government of British
Columbia had an opportunity of returning to Vancouver Island some of
the funds they had taken for the development of the Mainland.
Vancouver Island, said Mr. Harrison,
.vas famous for several things, but 1'
vas particularly famous for its scenery,
which wns a valuable asset.   The Do-
Estimates   of   School   Trustees Iminion Government realized this.   Tho
Held Over I •lri!ne thing was to get roads for their
j scenic value as well ns for their hilt   was   intended   to  bring  I.t  the dustrlal value, and it was best to com ■
eslimates for 1029 at the meeting of|.3ine these Uvo if possible.   The tourist
and ull the clubs Iu tbo city boast a
good membership. In the district crib
league games played" last week the
Athletic club team defeated the Vets.,
but the wise ones say the City team
will carry off the honors this season
and providing the latter team do win
the Maynard cup. It is presumed it
will be well filled with a special blend
of Creme de Pickard.

It was as a soccer star, however, that

team and later as a member of the
Cumberland United Team, He looks
in the besl nf condition and In speaking <>',' he FItn Finn he says it Is "somo

the Board of School Trustees held
on Friday last, but owing lo the unavoidable absence of Trustee W.
Henderson it was deemed advisable
to hold them over to thc next meeting.
Mr, F. R. Shenstone, principal of the
High Scliool and Mr. G. Apps, principal of the Public Scliool tendered tlieir
reports which were read and ordered
filed.
In the discussion following the Introducing of music in the schools,
some very interesting points were
raised, It was eventually decided lo

Thc tourists want d to see our timber
lot iields of stumps, and they should
have a rond which would let the Pacific
Ocean be visible. The Island had bee:
called "a bit of England on the Pacifli
Const," but thc only part from which
the Pacific could bc seen was from Port
Renfrew to Bamfield.
South of the Alberni Canal, said Mr
Harrison, it was possible to build a road
along the coast. Fabulous figures had
leen given as to its cost, but this was a
bel. it presented no great difficulties.
The policy of the Victoria Board
."as for the government to construct
:mnk roads before liaterals and expropriate all land along these roads
which was unfit for agruculture. Tliey
wanted the east coast of he Island tn
'■ .c a road following the coast line as
far as possible with a reserve of the
'Limber along the road. They were not
opposed to toe upper part of the
Island; they were nol op] tsed to Duncan. No one community should be

ROUGH 0.\ ritl.WK RUPERT
ONE of Canada's Newspaper correspoiuluiits in London
lias run up against one of those fantastic yarns about
tiiis country ami its cliniato whicb occasionally arc
given space in eveu widely-spread Old Country publications. On this occasion Pearson's Weekl.. has been let.
in for a libel on the city which Mr. T. D. Pattullo so abl;
represents in British Columbia Legislature. The article
appears under the name of Miss Barbara Austen, an opera
singer, who gives some of ber experiences afler ten years
Iu the United Slates. She put Winnipeg's nose oul ot
joint ai the commencements ny transferlng Manitoba
capital to the neighboring republic; but her "most excit-
iug experience" is reserved for Prince Kupert. How will
this strike Mr. Paltullu:
"Due at Prince Kupert, British Columbia, our company
embarked on a boat ahouttho size of a Channel steamer,
which should havo accomplished the twenty-live mile
Journey In about an hour. But Lho wind and lido bad
swept an immenso barrier of ice Hoes up the north mouth
of tbe river, blocking il almost completely.
"Through   this   ice   fleld   we   literally   fought   our   wa
during two whole days nnd nights.
"Excepting tinned port and beans, there was uo food
aboard, and It was so bitterly cold that we dared uot pul
our noses outside the cabins.
"Finally our ship became Jammed in the ice within
two miles of Prince Rupert, and to get nut and walk
seemed the only solutiou. So at 7:30 In tho morning the
entire company climbed down the ship's sides on rope
ladders and trekked across the solid ice. In order to land
we had to clamber up a pier about thirty feet high, haul-
ng up our baggage as hest we could."
It would not be kind to suggest to Barbara thai it lonks
as If she had beeu using tho wrong end of the telescope.
But the correspondent who rubbed bis eyes with amaze-j
ment when he found out bow Prince Rupert had changed
since he left Britisi Columbia has attended to thia slur
on Mr. Pattullo's riding by gently reminding Pearson's
Weekly that the northern port of this province Is not
inhabited by the Eskimos and that Winnipeg really la in
Canada and not in thc United Sattes.     —Victoria Times
OTTAWA JOURNAL
OTTAWA Journal: An Incident In Washlng:on during

party would In fu ure handle ibe patronage that was
formerly held to he the prerogative of the Senators and

An adventure story
Dramatic adventure In the hinterlands of China, a blood-curdling climax that saves a beautiful girl from

and an exuberant, dare-tfavil hero,
and you have ihe makings of one of
the most thrilling motion pictures
over seen, Metro - Goldwyn - .Mayer's
"telling the World,'' which comes to
tho Ilo-Ilo Theatre this Friday ami
Saturday with William Haines as the

A daring reckless reporter is the

the editor, but ho makes good and !:<
Instrumental in exposing a murder hi
n roadhoiise. He falls In love with
one of the dancers and follows her
when she goes with a troupe on a
lour of the Orient. How she Is captured hy Chinese bandits and nbout
to be publicly beheaded when tbe boy
summons aid from warships of several
countries through wirelss messages;
how she Is saved and tho boy proclaimed the greatest newspaper man
in tbe world makes a great picture
that holds ono breathless through its
unwinding.

(    Mr. G. A. Cheeke, of Malahat, ad-'
I vocated a road to San Juan and the
development of the San Juan harbor I
i as a port.   His board was not in afvor'
' of the diversion of the road to Cowich-
an Lake but they were in favor of the
Sproat Lake-Tofino road.    As far as
the    tourists    were    concerned,    Mr.
Cheeke said that if the Volsted Act
were amended he did not think they
would have so much interest in our
scenery.
General Money, of Qualicum Beach,
said his board favored the road to
Ucluelet and Long Beach and also the
extension of the Island Highway from
Campbell River to Sayward and that
existing roads be completed before new
roads undertaken. He spoke very
strongly on the tourist trade with
which his business made him very familiar. This trade was growing enormously and they wanted to see the
sea, but they should look first to the
good of the people already lllvng on
the island.
Speaking for the Courtenay-Comox
Board of Trade, Mr. P. L. Anderton
said they were not very much interest

==s j from the tourist standpoint.   He re
.■■. j minded the executive of a resolution
• | passed at a meeting In Duncan to the
! i effect that no new roads be- built un
; j til the Island Highway was surfaced
I ! as far as Campbell River. There was
; \ still 30 miles to the south of Courtenay
■ ', and 20 miles to the north un-oiled.
: | He did not want to stand in the wav
; j of any other roads being built, but he
' ! did not want any other road construe-
; ! tion to interfere with the carrying ou
j ' of the oiling programme. At Menzies
;  Bay there were, or would be immedl
• \ ately, a thousand men working which
; ■ meant a pay roll of one and a half
;  millions a year.   It should be the bus-
I ; iness of the board to keep this business
;  on Vancouver Island and if this road
• was not built the money would all go
;  to Vancouver.     If that nine miles ol
■ ! road were built before the first of June
II it would immediately draw the trade
■ i to the island.
I i In adition to this, Courtenay want-
j ed the construction of the Cumber-
! : Iand-Alberni road. So far as the West
; Coast road was concerned they were
! j not opposed to It but thought there
; should be a road to give the tourists
■•• la circuit.
= j Mr. Wallace, Saanich, said he had
Ui!') come to the meeting with an open
mind to try and work for the good oi
the Island as a whole. In other sec-
' tions of the province the government
had opened up roads for diflercnt cor-
: porations and apparently we had lain
dormant. He thought the tourist
[ trade was one of the largest of our in-
f dustries but we also wanted roads tc
develop the country and bring Indus-
! tries and stop the migration to the
1 south.
j For the Nanaimo Board, Mr. Lelgh-
; ton sail they felt the Sproat Lake-
; Alberni road was really the one piece
jof road construction that Vancouver
I Island was crying out for at the pre-
i sent time. The northern part of the
i Island contributed most of the revenue
! and there was a great deal of work
;due it. The industrial west coast was
| wholly north of the Barclay Sound and
Toflno was the shipping centre for the
| canneries, small mills, etc., on that
I part of the coast. Tourists, he thought.
j were not specially pleased in roads
i built especially for them but would be
J better pleased with roads built for our
industries.
| Mr. T. H. Mumford, Cumberland, ad-
! vocated the construction of the Cum-
i berland-Albernl road and the road to
'Long Beach.
] Mr. F. S. Cunllffe, a past president
I of the Associated Boards, thought sec-
j tlonallsm should be avoided and
J broad, general policies laid down. He
[suggested that the executive draw tbe
i government's attention to the fact that
| several new roads were needed on Vancouver Island and urge upon them the
i adoption of a policy of road building
[ that would primarily be destined to
' serve industries and secondarily serve
j the greatest number of people. Th?
working out of the technical details
was for the government itself.
The Duncan Board of Trade submitted a resolution asking that all existing roads be put in flrst class condition; the construction of the road to
Tofino, and that the feasibility of
building tho west coast road via Cowichan Lake be investigated.
Realizing that a full discussion of I
this resolution would ocupy consider-
I able time and possibly lead to dlssen-l
slon, Mr. Leighton suggested a resolu-l
'tions committee be appointed. Thisj
i was done and a committee composed of I
Messrs. Harlrson, Anderton, SmyVhe,!
I Cheeke and Wallace brought in thej
j following resolutions, which were ad-
! adopted unanimously:
1. That the road from Sproat Lake
I to Toflno be constructed forthwith.
2. That the policy of oiling the Ts-'
i land Highway north to Campbell River
, be continued.
|   3.   That the Island Highway be con- j
;tlnued to Menzies Bay and thence to'
! Seymour Narrows.
!    4.     That   the   Cumberland-Alberni
road be completed,
g I   5.   That the Ocean Highway be eon-
I   tinued by way of Port San Juan to
m j Alberni by the most advisable route.
| Immunity
All unknown to ourselves, our bod-

invisible e:ieniles— disease germs. The
war is a cortlnuoua one and we are
only aware of it when the tissues of
our bodies are not successful in their
defense, resulting in what we call
illness or disease.
Tho attack of the disease germs
calls forth a mobilization of our defensive forces, and, as a result of resisting Uie attack of certain germs,
the defensive forces become trained
in defence, sometimes becoming so
well as to ensure the overcoming of
one or other of these enemies.   When
the Individual has acquired a resist
