waited upon the City Council nt their
meeting on Tuesday night asking fori        rk/-»rT'Tl       ■ n
an extension of the City's water sys- LARGE   NUMBER OF
tern to that point.
In introducing the matter. Mr.
Simms said that a public meeting hud
been called at Royston and this committee of four appointed to go into
the matter. The meeting had been
very representative and he had been: A number of Cumberland athletes
surprised at the interest taken. There; travelled  to Alberni ou Monday and
were between 40 and 50 people present who were determined that something must bc done in the matter.
However, Mr. Holton was spokesman
for the delegation and he woujd go
fully Into lt.
Mr. Hilton said the committee mentioned had been appointed to appear
before the council to see whether they
would extend their water lines as far
as Royston; they believed the city had
authority to supply water within that
area. They had been told that Cumberland would like to supply them but
they believed they were more attached to Courtenay than to Cumberland.
They had made a list of some fifty
who they felt would take water if
they could get it and their object was
more to find out what would be required of them before agreeing to extend the water to tlie district.
They had fifty prospective customers for water riglit at the start. It
had been suggested that the city might
look on it as a kind of two-edged
sword; that the distribution of water
to outside points would tend to cause
people living in thc city to move outside. The Major was doubtful that it
would have that effect. As opposed tc
that they had lost many people who
would have settled in Royston from
the fact that they had not been able
to get water and with that in view
they were now trying to induce the
city to extend the water line. They
estimated the cost at about $10,000
and there would be an immediate income of $1500.00 a year to offset that
The waterworks of the city, he said
were a valuable asset and the bigger
the city grew the more valuable It
would be and he thought that in far
less than ten years the cost would be
absorbed. The more people tliey could
get to come to Royston tlie more it
would benefit the city; their business
was centred in the city; everybody in
the neighborhood of Royston looked
had depleted thoir funds lie though
they are most allied in this district.
Aid, Bali, Chairman 0. tie Water
Committee, referred to the Comox
proposition and the dilliculties they
had to face in getting that watei
scheme put through; they had had
to form a company and put in the
line which would eventually become
the property of the city. However, he
thought if the matter could be arranged, somo scheme should be devised to provide Royston with water.
The matter was referred to the
Water Committee to confer with the
Royston Committee and bring in a report at the next meeting.

Canadian Collieries
Now Control Bulk Of
Island Coal Trade
Victoria—Sale of the Western Fuel
Corporation to the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd.. announced In Nannlmo last night, puts almost tlie entire
output of Vancouver coal mines in thc
control of the purchasing concern, reports on file at the mines department
here show.
Together, the mines of the two companies now merged produced 1,038,000
tons of coal last year. Of this, the
Western Fuel Company produced 544,-
000 and the Canadian Collieries 409,-
300 tons. The only large island colliery
left outside the control of the enlarged
organization is that of the Granby
Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co.
at Cassidy, which last year produced
167,000 tons,
The Canadian Collieries Itself controls nine separate mines, three of
them near Cumberland, known as the
Comox Collieries; five known as the
Extension mines at Wellington, ar.d the
No. 5 mine nt South Wellington. The
Western Fuel company's mines a-e all
at Nanaimo and are known as the No.
1, the Reserve, and the Wakesiah.
The purchasing company is controlled in Britain and was formed to take
over the original Dunsmuir coal interests on the Island. The Western Fuel
company is controlled in the United
States. Lieut-Col. C. W. Villiers, general manager of the Canadian Collieries, is recognised as the directing
force of that organization and of the
merger now completed. The result of
the merger, it is believed, will be to put
the Island coal industry on a more-
stable basis, by cutting down unnecessary overhead and eliminating unprofitable operations. For some years
the industry on the island has suffered
from serious depression and marketing difficulties.
Nanaimo—The Nanaimo Herald is
authoritatively informed that, dating
from September 1st, the management
of the Western Fuel Corporation Ltd.
of Canada will be taken over by thc
Canadian  Collieries   (Dunsmuir)   Ltd.
The sale is presumed to be the result
of a visit here several months a?o of
T. R. Stockett, formerly manager of
the mines here, ond J. Smith, former
heavy stockholder in the Western Fuel
Corporation. It ia understood that
thees gentlemen investigated the Nan
almo properties, end turned in a report
to the stockholders of the Canadian
Collieries which has resulted in the
sale of the property to them.
It is also current rumor, though noi
confirmed, that the C.P.R. are financially interested in the merger.
Thomas Graham ls general manager
on the Island for the Canadian Collieries.

greatest possible regret that we announce the death of Mr. Andrew Baxter, who passed away in Ladysmith
Hospital on September 3rd. As stated in the "Free Press" a feu weeks
ago, he was struck by a rolling log
while working in the bush near Nanoose.
His death is the cause of Errlngton

friend—one who was always ready
with a Joke, always cheerful. Mr.
Baxter was one of those men who
never did harm to others either by

were in need. He kept to himself in
all matters, always looking after and
minding his own affairs. He was
a young, strong nnd healthy man and
a great credit to thc whole n( the district, if any Errlngton people can be
of help to the Baxter family, they
will willingly do all in. their power,

had collapsed on August 31st of this
year, was considering means of preserving Buttles Lake and tributary

pulp project and the Information that
the time had been extended on August
8th came as a complete surprise to the
government. Premier Tolmie hnd
been preparing to tnke a trip in with
his whole cabinet to look over the situation.
The Premier indicated that his goo-
crnment would like, if possible, to preserve scenic timber in the Campbell
River district permanently.

Ottawa, Sept. ti.—The report of the
officers who investigated the fatal
collapse of the Victoria-Seattle passenger plane ls in the mails, coming
to the department, according to tho
statement of Ihe deputy minister of
the naval service today.
The enquiry was the ordinary departmental one, although as Wing
Commanders Gordon and Breadner
happened to lie st the Coast, they woru
utilized, in addition to tlie local
"Tho plane," Deputy Minister Des-
baruts said today, "crashed in U.S.
waters, and thus the accident itself
was beyond our jurisdiction. The enquiry which lias been held was to ^"-,
If the Canadian air regulations wore
observed ami If the operating company took all the prescribed pre cautions."
I'nper Attacks Authorities
Victoria. Sept. 0.—Canadian authorities have been extremely lax In attempts to recover the bodies of passengers lost In the wreck of the B.C.
Airways' giant monoplane recently,
the Vlctorln Colonist declared In a
strongly-worded editorial,   it said.
■•in 'his city tbe question is being
asked seriously and porslstontt):
'Have our authorities done enough
towards recovering the bodies of those
Who lost their lives iu the wreck hi
Amorican waters of the monoplano "i'
the B.C. Airways'." Wo have no sits
dow of doubl that the American authorities would welcomo every possible aid that could tic extended from
the Canadian side. Whero It is a
question <d the dead there are no International difficulties that staud tu
tho way. Some days ago u q'uery
came over the long distance telephone
from Seattle: "What are tho f'au.i-
dlan authorities doing to recover ths
lost monoplane with the bodies it
contains?" It had to be admitted thai
lhey were doing little enough.
"Tbe American uav.il attthorlUe ■
would, we may assume, welcome the
full and active co-operation of the
Canadian naval authorities in tlie
search for tlie bodies. Had the disaster happened on this Isde of the
line, and had American Hvos been
Involved, our authorities, just as so
often happens in tho case of shipwreck, would have been glad enough
to have had any American resources
within reach placed at their disposal.

At the meetinf on Tuesday riirht the

that the purchase or gas, oil. repairs
and tires by the city be divided equally
amongst the different garages. The
petition was backed up by a strong

C. Bool as the chief spokesman, who
claimed that the action of the council was discriminating. The garage

The end \taxes and ll;iinS water nnd light and

Mr, J. Idiens, local agent for the
Imperial Oil Co., claimed that the
other gasoline companies were turning out as much home products as the
company favored by the council's resolution; they all had to purchase
their crude oil outside but they all had
their refineries ln British Columbia,
where they had large payrolls. He
ottered to pay thc expenses of any two
members of the council over to loco
to see the Imperial Oil plant there.
Mr. J. A. Hemm said he did not

in the matter; he understood the Home

in "take steps to purge the trades union movement
t,i' the Communist element." By an overwhelming
majority at its Diamond Jubilee meeting at Swansea
yesterday It po   ed a ri  olution to 'his effect.
Or] nizeri labor In Britain is implacably opposed to
the polii rioscow.    Al thi se meetings of the Trades
Union Congress the "red1 wing lias little or no show at
all, Moi is II very difficull to understand why. The average Old Country trade union member is able to do his
own tbli terferonce in any matter with
which li,. i i, nili) ■', and ll lie gets out of his depth on
any (] ., *tton, he ha the knacfc of netting an explanation
upon  which  hi   can   rely.
Britain will : extreml ts as other countries also
will have them. Bui they are gradually getting fewei'
in number. The worker v. ill grumble; he will rave against
what he consldi . ie Inju tice nf caplta.l Yet he usually
fluds a way oi I Ulng off steam which does little harm
to himself or nnybody else.
Capital and l- ir in Britain are on belter terms with
one another now than tor many years past. The lesson of
the abortive general strike ami the coal stoppage of 1026
appears to have goni home, Tlie futility of eontinual
conflict h * made Ita If ■ • It. Againsl this new co-operation the Inia ladow of Communism pales Into In-

FORTUNATELY for British Columbia this season han
been p i laratively light one for forest fires.
Conditions have been less hazardous than for some
years. Welcome showers occurred at the right time. In
some pans of tl e Interior, however, it still is necessary to
exercise care,   Vegetation on Vancouver in
land also is fairly dry yet. A few days of really hot
weather, by no means unknown in early September, soon
would counteract the moistening eflect of recent heavy
fogs. In thia connection it. is interesting to note what
the United Stati '   : nice is doing to impress upon
the mind of tl eople of that country the urgent necessity of taki ry possible precaution to preserve
standing timber. It bas Issued a pamphlet called "Think
It Over."   Here are -■nne extracts from It:
There are more than 4,000 uses for wood—and new
ones nre being discovered every day.
One Billion pencils are used in the United States
every year.
Railroads use 100 million new wooden ties every
Mining operations call for 260 million -cubic feet
of wood annually.
It takes thirty-six acres of forest to produce one
day's edition of a big city newspaper.
Lumbering and pulp manufacture makes up the
second largest industry in the United States in capital
Invested and  labor employed.
Six million people derive their living from industries
using wood—one million men are employed In the
lumber  industry.
We   are   cutting  our   remaining   forest   four   times
as fast as they are being renewed by new growth .
There  are   100  million acres  of cutover and  burned
forest   land   in   Hie   United   Stales   which   should   be
growing trees,  ,
The pamphlet  concludes with "What  is the Answer?"
The foregoing  statements, applying  In  a general  sens"
to the use of wood, may be taken to heart by the people
of this province in  particular and the  Dominion in general,   When we are careless in the timbered areas we may
lie  the  means  of robbing many of our  workers of their j
means of livelihood.    Hundreds of thousands of feet of ;
mature timber may be destroyed in a few hours.   It take
neerlj ,i century to replace them.   We. too, should "Think |
ii Over"    We know the answer.    ■ -Victoria Daily Time

ALLUSION in a Toronto newspaper to Mr. John Jo.*t- j
sop, ;i pioneer of this province, has led to an Inquiry for further Information as to his career. He
was superintendent of education in the seventies at a
time when the post was much more strenuous, in a physical sense, than it Is today. Mr. Jessop apparently carried
out his superlntendency on horseback, making loug
journeys from one school to another, He has been given
the credit of establishing a free non-sectarian school system in British Columbia. There are doubtless many still
living who recall incidents of his career, which appears
to have been one of conslderabe usefulness in this province, information on the subject is sought by Mr. J. L.
Phillips, of Toronto, who resided in British Columbia
from 1874 to 1S79.
AFTER so many years of attempts to enforce prohibition in the United States It is a commentary on non-
enforcement that Mr. W. C. Durant, a manufacturer, should
now enme forward with the offer of a prize of $25,000 "for
the best and most practlcalable plan to make the Eighteenth Amendment effective." It follows from this that it
is  not  effective  now.    It  is  the duty of governments  to
' make laws effective, nol a matter for puhlic competition
to llnd the means.   Where governments are ineffective In
I tliis particular it would seem that a law has not public
saiiciiun. and without such sanction no law can be enforced under democratic rule.

Then had followed all the years
when he hadn't known . , . bad loved
her in his heart all the time; oh. she
knew that, he'd told her so—but had-
nt known, not consciously.
Now she had to ba'te up the &lec6B
of her life and mend them sonieho.v
and go on living.
The days passed and still she had
not wept. Arud twatched her in terror as she wen! about the tlat ut her
little household lasks. played With
Kurt, addresed the innumerable envelopes, received the few friends who
called when ihey heard of Carl's death
He thought ... It can't go oil like
this .... she must break down . . .
this isn't natural or healthy .... it
frightens me . . , if only we could
make her cry.
When Carl's iileniiticmiou tug was
found in ul sent hack. Arndt held Ills
(inking that now the outbreak, the outlet would follow. Uut
It did not. She turned the thing over
nnd over In her hand, her eyes absent,
her mouth taut. She said nothing,
only looked at her father with whose
gallant, hollow eyes in whicli dark
misery sat. shrouded, and pride.
One day there was a knock at the
door. And at Pauli's call Baruska
came In, bustling, bedenlzed, carrying
her loaded basket. Sho let It dowu
and took Pauli's hand.
"I'm so glad to see you, Miss Pauli."
she said breathlessly, "The professor
told you of the arrangement we had
made? 1 couldn't get here before, hut
here I am now . .. . I've brought the
things. .May 1 see the baby? 1 have
the eggs, the good eggs for him there
and the milk—line fresh  milk  ..."
Pauli stared at the woman . . . her
father had said nothing of Uaruska's
first visit. Her eyes travelled slowly
from the beaming well-satisfied red
face, over the silk skirt and lace hod-
ice, down to the basket, llie eggs in
their wrappings, the bottles of milk
She repeated slowly.
"Milk and eggs.'
Suddenly she grew very white, Arndt sprang anxiously lo her side. She
did not move gently away from his
arm as she bad since her loss, sho
merely leaned against him and said,
Then the tears came.
Mitzi. who had been sewing by the
stove, came forward and took the uncomprehending Baruska aside. Arndl
helped Pauli into her room and laid
her on the bed. lie sat there beside
her, holding her in his old arms for
hours. She cried herself to sleep
there, like a child.
Then, slowly, she was herself again
as much herself as she could ever be,
as any woman could he. She had
been perilously balanced In the Ilrst
few days. Now she was normal again
she still retained her secret seti-»e
that her baby was where nothing
could hurt him again—no insanity of
Statesmen, no lunacy of nations. She
still knew a deep gratitude that Carl
was safe, loo, that be would not come

Jan had come. Hut she hail met her
grief face to face; she no longer avoided it; she come to grips with it
and acknowledged  its strength.
Now she must turn to something
must love something, must mother
some one. The love she found in her
father whom she hnd always loved
whom she loved tenfold, now that he
was all that was left to her. And for
her brooding maternal spirit thore
was Jan.
Jan had not left them, they had
given him his quarters in Uaruska's
old room. For a long time he lay
there huddled on a chair Or in the
bed. shrinking when anyone opened a
door suddenly or spoke to him abruptly. Sometimes tbey heard bim
screaming in the night. He could not
seen to bear their hands on hlm or
their eyes. Hut, little by little he wns
growing more accustomed to tlie Idea
that he was really safe, thai nothing
could hurt him again. But the memories territled him still. When Paull
took him in charge he told her that.
He aaid. over antl over, "I can't forget;   T can't forget."
She soothed bim.    She said; —
"It will come right in time, Jan.
and the ugly memories will pass."
Rut he cried out so pitifully that he;-
eyes were  lilled  with  tears.
"No—Its all shut up—In here"—

He looked at her in an anguish of
gratitude. He hnd no mercy on her. of
course; he could not ihlnk of her. only
of himself. Often in the night lie
would cull her. "Miss Pnuli Miss
Pauli!" And she would put on her
stockings and the shabby dressing
gown nnd slippers and go to his room

Arndt  argued  witli her.
"Paull, y m're killing yourelf—you

"I suppose so, dearest. But I want

As the boy grew better she found
him llt'le distracting tnsks to do. She
even taught him to knit. She bought

long time before they dared allow

little by little that time came, too. He
was very crippled but able to get
about, able to stand for a time iu the
l'ood lines until Arndl came to take
his place, able even to help get wood
from the Prater. He was months getting back his health, as much health
as he would ever have. But he came
out of things snne—he came out so'i-

Then Fritz Wineklemnii came home.
Before lie came Mitzi heard from
him again. His letter told her very
little save that he was alive. When it
arrived sbe was like a woman gone
out of her senses, flew screaming to
Puuli and Arndl. throw herself in
their urms, cried and laughed ami
fainted. That was hard for Paull—
harder than Mitzi—hut Arndt knew,
He saw her white face nnd her shaking hands.
But when Fritz came home it was
Pauli who helped Mitzi. For Fritz
was an old man. nerve-wracked, sullen, dangerous. Suspicious of everything and every one. The worst of his
shell-shock had passed; his wounds
were healed—superficially. But his
sou!  was  irrevocably  scarred.
Kurt ran from him crying with
terror. He did not recognize iu this
haggard, hoarse, hysterical man his
exuberant and laughing young father,

she were exhausted.
Pauli could help here, ller experience with Jan hid ta ight her. In
lier turn she taught Mitzi how nothing

learned—little Mitzi. who had been so
gny nml irresponsible, who had leaned a little childishly, on her V'v'v/.,
Now it was he who must lean on her;
now It was her shoulders that must

Behrend came ofien to the Hahn-
gasse. He eliminated the money qii■ ■ -?-

small Income on Pauli. He would

As much as she was finally v tiling to

several reasons—first of all. to he

and then thc armistice. A day, for the
Vrndts. not of riotous rejoicing, hut of
sober happiness. It was over -the
killing and brutality. Not the poverty and pinching. But at least one
could go to hed at night without think-
how many beloved lives are being
snuffed out while I sleep? How many
women will wuke soon to mourning?
How many men are dying in anguish
ami  loneliness  while  I  sleep?
August Behrend wns, of course, as
loud ami aggre.-lve in defeat as in
victory. Vet the Arndts were not
wholly without understanding. Il was
a tragic thing to see the other man's
bewilderment, his uncomprehenslon.
He could not grasp that things "had
gone wrong." lie was noisy in his
asseveration that "somewhere there
had been a blunder." He was hitter
against every one in turn. There was
no grace in hlm with which to accept
defeat silently. He had believed 80
long In the righteousness of war,
when it wns "his war." that he could
not understand the situation lu which
he found himself Hint, of a native or
a   conquered   country.     He   was  rau-
| coils iu his grief and his amazement,
for he had lost his belief in the in-
vi.Al IMt of h!s cause, and n0 man
Is the same who loses what he has
lived  hy for many years.
So they suffered him at the llnhn-
gasse tlat and lei him rave hinis,-[f into comparative quiet. At least he had
not lost his-money. He'd taken care
of that. And the lirst secret hinting
at defeat had reached ihe money hags
first, and Behrend knew lunv to take
care of Ills own.
In a way, ihey told each other
again Behrend had lost more than
lhey   had.

Eevr since he had been able to send
her the lirst letter, lie smoked his

[lis heart was still sore with his
sorrow at Carl's death—he'd been
very fond of Carl - no oue could iillf'e

"Why keep him standing there.
Pauli? Do come in, Bruce. You'll
have your old room."
Bruce went in. The room was much
as he remembered it save that the pictures, the new—new wben he laat
saw them—weding gifts and the
casts were not there. But the place
was neat nnd cheerful and dear to
him through familiarity. He'd not
seen It in its lean days—so that much
had heen spared him. The dining
room was no longer a bedroom, i'auli
having moved back to the room that
had been her's as a girl. In the living room the typewriter still predominated—on a new table. (And a smaller table, held, only Carl's picture.
Before it. a vase with a single red
flower in it.
Bruce beamed around and mopped
his brow.
"By Jove—just as it used to be! And
hot for June, whnt?" he asked, looking about  him  with  satisfaction,
Presently his big trunk came and
he "settled In" and they had supper,
and after supper a long talk -under
tlie electric light which had been restored to Vienna, .Inn was away for
a few days trying to tlnd work in the
suburbs- ami the three friends were
alone. Not even Mltzl had been invited for ihis first day. Tomorrow
would do.
They talked of Ihe professor's work
at   the  university, of  Pauli's  typing
work,   of   Bruce's  Journey   hul   most j
of  all   ol"   Carl's   play.     Then   Bruce j
gave them bis surprise.
"Who ilo you think travelled here j
with me to see Carl's play?"
"Who?" asked Paul! and her father i
ina   breath.
He didn't answer for n moment. Ii {
seemed to his he could never have
done with looking at her. Little and]
dear—and the same. The gray in her
hair made her seem pitifully lovely to ]
him, somehow, as if a beloved child ;
had powdered Its bright hair iu piny, !
"(Jaunt!" he told them finally. "Thei

off. however, nnd  I  came on.    He'll
be here late tonight, I think—motor- j
ing from   somewhere.     I  told   him   I
thought there'd be a matinee tomorrow.    We can all go, can't   we?"
Arndt said, keenly:---"Vou made!
him  come!"
Bruce smiled.   Pauli broke In, trem- ;
ulously:—"Bruce, how very wonderful
of you!"
Gordon shook his head . "I promised Carl." he reminded them gravely, j
After he had gone lo bed he lay !
thinking, back in the room he knew ,
so well. Of Paull. Of the professor
Of Carl—and most of all of Pauli's
baby—who had not lived. He said,
over and over:—"Paull"—just her '
name, uttered silently in his heart-- 1
with all his love and pity in it.
The next day they met Gaunt at
the theatre and Bruce witnessed :\
performance of Carl Behrend's play,
"The Enemy," which had been running for some weeks. He sai between
Gaunt and Pauli, his face Impassive
but his hands clenched. It was a
great play—a noble play—would
Gaunt see that, would Gaunt realize?
fi lancing furtively at the stout.
dark-haired, quiet little man boside
hlm, he watched the effect of the
play upon him. Xow and then Gaunt
flushed with excitement once he
nearly rose from his seat. More than
once his hard clear eyes filled. Bruce
nodded, satisfied. Gaunt had seen, li
would be all riglit- for Carl's piny—
for Pauli.
After the matinee Bruce went with
flaunt to his hotel and Pauli and her
father walked home.    She said: -
"Every time I see it it seems heller. I
Every time I get something new out:
of it."
The professor smiled, He answered gently: —
Yes, I, too. We didn't realize it
wholly—before. Carl was-sheer genius. He told us a great truth before
even he had proved it for himself.
Xow be has. And we have. too. \V<3
They entered the house nnd went
up the stairs. Coming Into the living room Arndt said laying aside IA
hat and stick:—
"Past five—hut look at the sun-'
"It's tbe twenty-ninth of June,"
Pauli reminded him laughing, "nol

Oh, for the life of the French Foreign Legion! How many hoys have
thrilled with thc thought of becoming
a legionaire under the flag of France,
of seeing the world, fighting in s'.range
lands, heing decorated for bravery and
returning home a hero.
Something of the other side of n
legionnaire's life is shown in "Beau
Geste," P. C. Wren's thrilling mystery
story which has been transferred to
the screen by Paramount and whicli
comes to the llo-llo Theatre Friday
and Saturday, September Mth nnd
Forced marches of 30 miles n day,
carrying packs of from 50 to 65 pounds
and wearing seven pound coats under
blading suns—these are common occurrences in ihc Legion. There are
?.G crimes for which thc death penalty
may he Inflicted in thc Legion. It ls
no crime to .steal another's equipment
but it goes hard with a man whose
equipment is stolen. Sometimes they
even hold the bars of soap in their
mouths while washing to keep them
from being taken.
Ronald Colman, Neil Hamilton and
Ralph Forbes appear ns three English
brothers who enlist in the Legion.
Other featured players in "Beau Geste'
Include Alice Joyce, Noah Beery. Mary
Brian, William Powell. Norman Trevor and Victor McLaglen.
