City Get Power To
Large Majority in Favor of Bylaw
No. Mob Tlmrsday's Poll-
The city of Cumberland was given
power to go a step further in the
taking over of the Cumberland Electric Lighting Company property
rights and privileges when by law
No. 95 received the assent of the
ratepayers, the count showing 124 in
favor, only seven against and two
spoiled ballots. The two spoiled ballots had the word "yes" written
across the ballot InBtead of a cross
being marked In the space provided.
Now that the city have been given
the power by the ratepayers, we are
given to understand that the Anal details will be commenced without the
least possible delay and the taking
over of the plant is expected to be
completed by the end of August, It
has been a long drawn out affair, this
electric light question, but now that
the city have been so well backed hy
the ratepayers, it is to be hoped that
a success will be made cf the undertaking and that the business will be
managed in a judicious manner.
Other municipalities have made a
success of electric light business and
there is no reason'Why Cumberland
should not make a success of the latest acquisition.
Port Alberni ran their own plant
at one time and eventually sold out to
a big corporation, but it is freely said
that the same city of Port Alberni
would very much like to have the
plant in control again. The Mayor
stated al the meeting on Tuesday that
the electric light rates in Cumberland could be reduced in a very short
period, as it was not the intention of
the city to look for profits solely.
Former Residents
Celebrated Golden
Wedding in 'Frisco
CUMBERLAND, B.C., July 38.—
Many residents of this city will re-
mem Mr. and Mrs. William Jones, who
a few years ago, owned the Union
Hotel, seUlng out, the bjatnes*. to Mr.
and Mrs. H*j#-p»^;*a*
In Cumber.             _______
were extremely' popular and mac
host of friends. An account of the
golden wedding of this old local couple
taken from a San Francisco dally will
be of Interest.
Chllden Surround Couple on
Golden Wedding Anniversary.
A marirage trail that began in England 50 years ago and biased its quiet
way through Cleveland, British Columbia and San Francisco marked a
mllepost today with a simple handprinted sign on the door of a grocery
store at 3747 23rd street.
The sign read "This store will be
closed at 6 p.m. today.
Surrounded by four children and 23
grandchildren, William Jones, the proprietor, and Mrs. Jones were celebrating their golden wedding. Three more
children wired felicitations from widely scattered section of the continent.
"This means merely the beenining of
another 50 years" «'" couple smiled.
—«»j usit capable of the additional
half century. Jones is brisk, Jolly, clear
skinned. Mrs. Jones' white hair is the
only clue to the fact that 50 years
have elapsed since that day in Newport, Monmonthshire, England, when
at the age of 18 she forsook her maiden name of Anna Thomas. Jones was
20 when they married.
No startling philosophy, no Intricate
formula was advanced by the couple as
\a explanation of their prolonged
youthful outlook.
"Just co-operation," Jones said.
But their daughter Jennie, who
brought another Jones into the family when she married Edward Jones,
local business man, revealed the secret.
"Mother and father always took care
to treat each other and the ohlldren
with' the utmost consideration," she
She was seconded by Mrs. Rose
Lowdon of Vancouver, B.C.
Other children present at the jubilee dinner were Samuel Jones, 1002'ii
Dolores street, former mayor of Ladysmith, B.C., and Frederick C. Jones,
1898 Sanchez street, grocer.
The children unable to be present
are Mrs. John Dando of Cumberland,
B.C., Mrs. Jessie Campbell of Los Angeles and Albert B. Jones of Texas.
Hard Fought Tussle Ends in Courtenay's Favor

Lewis Park, thc Royston ball tosseiu
lost another game to the Courtonay
ranchers, being defeated two runs to
one. There was no score until the
fifth innings when Royston crossed
the plate. The sixth innings saw Courtenny with two men on when McLeod
went In to bat. With a well placed
drive between first and second the
Courtenay slugger brought in two
men, winning thc game as noted. This
win put Courtenay well at the head
of the table.

Ratepayers Heard
Mayor on Electric
Light Purchase
StattHMat •• Mayor aad Aldermen
QasMtlaaeal by Partridge
There was not a very large attendance at the meeting of the ratepayers
on Tuesday night es the Mayor took
the chair. Later on, however, many
more ratepayers dropped in and the
meeting turned out to be a representative one. Mayor Maxwell took
the platform himself, but the aldermen all took places at the front of
the hall and entered into the discus,
sions which followed. The mayor outlined in a very brief manner-all that
had been done with a view to.' purchasing the plant of the Cumberland
Electric Lighting Company to the
present time, tracing the various
rounds of the Court case to the Anal
scene at Ottawa.
The Mayor also went over the
statement as prepared by the council
and sent by mail to all ratepayers,
which showed that accenting to the
court's decision the plant, property
rights and privileges as defined by
agreement, plus stock value of $4,000;
was worth $74,000.00 and there had
been expended by the city to date in
legal fees, etc., the sum of $8,000.00
with $3,000,00 legal fees of the Cumberland Electric Light Company assessed against the city and $1,698,00
outstanding fees, making a .total of
$86,698.00. According to arbitration
the city take over from August the
1st, 1929, the Interest on the $74,-
000.00 being approximately $7,566.00
The council stated the Mayor was
asking the ratepayers to pass a bylaw
to raise $80,000.00 to take over the
plant, property, rights and privileges
of the company. According to the
Mayor the city's liability to August
the 1st, 1931, was $94,254.00 with
receipts of approximately $18,433.24
leaving a balance indebtedness of
$75,820.76. As the bylaw calls for
$80,000.00 said the Mayor you will
see we shall have approximately a
working capital of $4,000.00, also
providing for the return to the city
of approximately $6,000 which has
be^ht taken from the general revenue,
No expenses, stated' the Mayor, In
"' *'; * ic^on pf p«rch»«e may be teken
the city's general revenue,
Wtrtftlre ^W-retam of tMe xmMHtt-
to the general fund.
The Mayor proceeded to show how
the council had it worked out that the
project would finance itself without
one cent of taxes being added on to
ratepayers. The sinking fund, on
$80,000.00, based on reinvestment of
sinking fund In bonds or other securities, approved of by the inspector
of municipalities is approximately
$2,685.00, interest per annum
amounting to $4,000.00. Based on the
information the council had of what
the company has been doing in the '
past and being conservative on our
figures as to the future, said the
Mayor, we estimate $9,000.00 per
annum. Under city management we
propose to aave in salaries per annum
$2,000. We do not need a manager
at twenty hundred dollars here stated
the Mayor. Other savings to be effected would be the sum of $625 taxes
paid by the company but not applicable to a municipal owned plant. Another saving which would be effected
would be $360 directors fees and
$120 solicitor's fees.
The Mayor said these figures might
vary a little from time to time but
felt safe in quoting them. He urged
all to get out on Thursday and vote
as it required a three-fifths majority
for the bylaw to carry.
He invited the meeting to ask any
questions, not to be afraid but to
speak up and discuss the matter thoroughly. After a moment or two, Mr.
Frank Partridge asked several questions of the Mayor re the financing
and the operating of the plant and
somewhat doubted the Agures as presented by the Mayor. He himself had
figured the thing out and his figures
were far ahead of the figures submitted by the Mayor. He also read
oul a list of figures which he had obtained from the City of Courtenay
about their light plant. Mr. Partridge
said he did not want tb knock the
city at all but he could not see where
the city would benefit by taking over
the plant. According to the way he
had it AgUred out the city would not
be able to reduce electric light rates
for a number of years. He would like
to believe the Mayor when he said
the rates could be lowered within a
yenr or two, personally he had very
grave doubts as to that.
Several other ratepayers asked
questions but the keynote of them all
appeared to be in favor of the city
taking over. Mr. Dave Little said he
did not care two straws if the city
were paying twice what the courts
had decided the plant was worth. He
could not see thc force of allowing
a private corporation to strangle the
ratepayers to death.
Mr. T. D. McLean, Mr. T. E. Banks
and Mrs. R. Richardson also asked a
few questions. The meeting was enthusiastic and ended quietly without
any hard arguments.

Australian Trade
Treaty Causes A
Lively Debate
A. W. Neill aad H. H. Steven. Argue
Several Phase, of Treaty
The Australian Trade agreement
came in for some attention from
members of the Federal parliament
when the matter came up in the
House last week, Mr, A. W. Neill and
Mr, H. H. Stevens having some lively
passages which in part we quote, as
taken from Hansard of July 22.
Mr. Neill: But butter is a product
of Australia if it is manufactured in
that country from cream. It is a manufactured article, the other being the
raw material. Knowing the alertness
of New Zealand, and how anxipus she
is to sell her butter, I should look for
some sort of legal manoeuvre by
which they would endeavor to meet
that situation. The temptation is too
great—14 cents in one place and two
or three cents of a bonus in the other.
I would again remind the house that
when the old treaty was introduced,
there did not seem to be any fear that
it would be injurious to us( as regards its application to New Zealand.
Political use was later made of it, and
the government was blamed for the
consequences—properly, of course,
because they must shoulder the responsibility and stand the results. But
no one in the house at that time ever
anticipated that the treaty with Australia would result in such an enormous influx of butter from New Zealand. No one voiced any such anticipation.
Mr. Chaplin: They were warned of
Mr. Neill: The warning was mild.
Mr. Manion: Mr. Donald Sutherland spoke for hours about it.
Mr. Neill: Yes; I remember his discussing it for hours. So long as there
was any political object to be gained
he would talk for days'.
Mr. Manion: the hon. gentleman
can understand that.
An hon. member: What are you doing now?
Mr. Neill: The criticism in regard
to New Zealand butter was entirely
trivial, for it was not anticipated that
the influx of that butter into Canada
would be what in fact it turned out
to be. Nevertheless; the government
paid the pttafc/t otn detklckjng rfbout

what happened once may happen
again. Some unexpected development
of trade may eventuate, and we are
powerless in the absence of the dumping duty.
Mr. Bowman: What do you suggest.?
Mr. Neill: Retain the dumping
Mr. Stevens: Does the hon. member
suggest rejecting the treaty if the
dumping duty is not retained?
Mr. Neill: That is not a fair question. We know very well that tho
treaty is here, and if we do not accept it in its entiretly it will be rejected. That is the threat the hon.
member holds out.
Mr. Stevens'. It is not a threat.
Mr. Neill: Perhaps not; but ths
hon. gentleman is asking mc to place
myself in that position, to reject the
manifold advantages I have indicated.
But I suppose it would be possible,
without a total loss of the treaty, to
refer the matter to Australia and ask
for further amendment. I am willing
to give thc Minister of Trade and
Commerce credit for having got the
last advantage that could be obtained
under the treaty, and he knows better than I do that it is useless going
back for improvements. Still, these
facts remain and must be faced.
Let me now sum up thc situation
so far as British Columbia is concerned. The fish and lumber people and
the newsprint interests arc getting a
great benefit, and I heartily approve
of the treaty in that regard. With
respect to the pulp and sulphite in-
dutry, they will not lie assisted but
may be injured to some extent. I cannot allow that fact to puss without
comment, no matter how much anyone mny try to prevent my discussing it.
Mr. Stevens: How will thoy be injured?
Mr. Neill I By the fact that the Australian is encouraged to buy newsprint rather than pulp and sulphite.
They have no preference whatever,
Mr. Stevens: How docs that injure
the industry? Thc hon. gentleman
makes the buld statement that the
pulp industry will suffer. Will he
kindly tell me how they will lie injured by the treaty?
Mr. Neill: I do not know that I
said "they will he"; I said they are
likely to bc injured. But they certainly have reason to complain when they
sec a competing branch of their own
industry given an enormous perfer-
ence under a treaty negotiated by the
government, while they themselves
are getting nothing at all. Are thc
conditions in the pulp and* sulphite
industry so far removed from the
conditions that exist in the newsprint
industry that there should be this discontinued on page three)
City Fathers In
Short Session
City Clerk Appointed R.gi.tr.r for
A short session of the city council
was held in the council chambers on
Monday night with His Worship
Mayor Maxwell presiding and present
Aldermen J. Ledingham, J. Williams,
W, Henderson, W. P. Symons and D.
There was very little business on
the agenda sheet and after the city
clerk had read the minutes of the
previous meeting a communication
from the municipality of Buino'iy
was read with reference to unemployed which was endorsed by the council.
Bills and accounts to the amount
of $767.99 were presented and referred to the finance committee for
payment if found correct.
In the reports of committees, the
finance committee chairman reported bank balances as follows: general
account, $1,771.38; tax account,
$489.38; school account, $1,857.00;
savings account, $555.00. The chairman of the board of works, Alderman
Henderson, reported holes on roads
repaired, ditches cleaned on third and
fourth streets. For the health committee, Alderman Bannerman reported a clean bill and for the water committee, Alderman Symons reported a
good supply. Alderman Williams for
the light committee reported everything in order whilst Alderman Ledingham on behalf of the fire wardens
said everything was in order and had
no report to make.
Under the heading of new buslnes,
the city clerk was appointed registrar
for the unemployed.
Trucks and Car
Destroyed in Fire
At Royston Beach
A spectacular flre that was probably
caused by a short circuit on a truck,
endangered life and property, destroyed two trucks, a touring car and a
garage owned by Mr. J. Idlens, local
agent for the Imperial Gasoline Co., at
Royston at six o'clock, Saturday morning, Damage is estimated at $3,600.
About $1,600 insurance was carried.
The: conflagration was brought to
the attention of Mr. O. K. Uchlyama,
-manager of the Royston Lumber Co.,
who resides next door to Mr. Idlens
about 5.45. He roused Mr. Idiens by
telephone and notified the Courtenay
Fire department who responded to the
alarm at six o'clock.
An Incipient blase on the roof of the
Uchlyama residence was quenched, but
the blase had too great a hold on the
garage and its contents to save anything.
Great danger to passing motorists
on the nearby Island Highway, and to
the Idiens snd Uchlyama residences
was caused by some 200 gallons ot
gasoline stored in one ot the trucks.
Safety valves prevented the explosion
of the fluid, which ignited in a pillar
of multi-colored flame that shot 50
feet in the air. Flre fighters say the
heat was Intense. Both houses were
saved by the dense growth of green
bush at this point, it Is believed.
Mr. Idiens was aroused by the crackling of the flames, but was not disturbed, believing the noise to be the
patter of rain on the roof. When he
was called 'rom his bed by Mr. Uchlyama he found one side of the tank
car ablaze, but dit not remove lt, fearing it might explode.
Telephone wires were brought down
by the blase but were repaired at an
early hour. Mr. Idiens resumed business without delay, and at once ordered new equipment.

A bad car accident happened on
Tuesday afternoon ahout 4.30 on the
Union Bay-Hoystnn Hoad close to the
railway crossing two mites north of
Union Dny when a car driven by Mra.
W. tt. Bobbins, of Foul Huy road,
Victoria crashed into a stump. From
details obtainable it would appear
that Mrs. Robins apparently was
overcome hy thc excessive heat, with
the result that the car crashed Into
a stump. In the car were three adults
and four children. Mrs. Robbins, Mr.
and Mrs. Watson and Richard Watson were more or less badly injured.
Mrs. Robbins is suffering from shock
and bruises and possible chest injuries and shock. Mr. and Mrs. Watson
are suffering from head injuries and
shock. Mr, Watson received a rather
nasty cut on the head necessitating
several stitches. The worst injured of
the party appears to he the young boy
Richard Watson who is about 11
years of age. He is suffering from a
broken nose, torn tongue and many
bad body bruises. The injured were
immediately rushed to the Cumberland Hospital where all are resting
as well as can bc expected.
The party had been visiting friends
in Cumberland and Courtenay and
was on the way back to Little Qualicum when thc accident happened. PAGE TWO
FRIDAY, JULY 81st, 1931.
The Cumberland Islander
THE GOVERNMENT and the House of Commons at
Ottawa have at last washed their hands nf the rather
bothersome business of the coal industry of Vancouver Island. The last rites were duly solemnized on
Wednesday night, with Premier Bennett officiating as
the lord high executioner. Asked for relief, Premier Bennett and his government have handed out something
harder and more deadly than a stone. He, the Prime
Minister, is quite satisfied that a bonus of 25 cents a ton
for B. C. bunker and export coal is quite all right, although his Government is prepared to pay subvention of
a dollar or a dollar and a half a ton to Alberta coal moving east and to Nova Scotion coal moving west. It is, of
course a piece of flagrant discrimination, and our poor
friend Wesley, sometimes known as the Hon. Wesley A.
Gordon, Minister of Mines, who sings a very weak falsetto to the Premier's resonant tenor, in an echo from
the throne, made it a hundred times worse. He simply did
not know what he was talking about, and we are not
surprised at that. We happened to be present when this
question of a bonus on bunker and export coal for British
Columbia coal was submitted to the Prime Minister, and
there was absolutely no misunderstanding. However, the
point remains the same that, whereas a dollar or u dollar
and a half a ton is not out of thc way as a subvention
for Albertaan and Nova Scotian conl, 25 cents as all
right for Vancouver Island coal. And we are not aware
lhat the coal mining communities of these two provinces
ever waited upon the Government at Ottawa as did the
mining people of Vancouver Island. What is the answer?
Premier Bennett did not tell us how the increase in
duty on American bituminous coal coming into Canada
would the Island situation, although it is clear that both
he and the Minister of Mines look to it to do something
The duty was 50 cents. It has been raised to 75 cents,
and this means that Island coal entering the United States
will have to pay an additional duty of 25 cents per ton.
The premier and his gallant Minister of Mines have actually made things worse than they were, but the latter exhorts us all to wait and see what beneficts accrue. How
can benefits accrue from additional handicaps? We asked
for bread and, having been given a stone, are now told
to wait until we see how it digests. Such sloppy craziness
is intolerable even at Ottawa.
The Prime Minister struck another note and a more
or'ganal reason for his action. It seems that it would not
be wise to stimulate an enduring industry. We must
agree that the coal industry on the Island has been an
enduring one, and that Premier Bennett has done nothing to stimulate it. Neither has he done anything to
relieve the fortunes and conditions of the long suffering
people who are dependent upon the coal industry. Thc
industry is still enduring and it is likewise dying. And
even if it dies the Prime Minister is still satisfied that a
duty on American fuel oil coming into British Columbia
is not feasible. Here in his own words wc have the announcement that it would not be wise to stimulate the
industry, and that a duty on American fuel oil is not
The coal industries of Nova Scotia and Alberta arc
somehow or other not enduring. At any rate this is the
only reason so far advanced why these industries should
get a subvention of a dollar and a dollar and a half a ton
and the industry on the Island a beggar's two bits. And
in the end, we are told flatly by the High Priest of tariff
protection for Canadian industries against foreign competition and foreign dumping that a duty on American
fuel oil is not feasible.
Never mind the economics of the question. Premier
Bennett is the head of a government which was elected
on a national policy of tariff protection for Canadian
industries. The coal industry on Vancouver Island has
been in existence for almost 80 years. In the last ten
vears it has been driven almost into bankruptcy by the
dumping into its own provincial fuel market of American
fuel oil. The oil is dumped into British Columbia and is
displacing a Canadian product and wrecking a Canadian
industry. There are barely half the men employed in ihe
coal mines of Vancouver Island there were ten years ago,
and even the half of them are not working half time. Still
says Bennett, it is not feasible to put a duty on this
American substitute for British Columbia coal. Where or
wherein lies Mr. Bennett's worries? A national policy
cannot be broken u pand applied piecemeal, no matter
what thc circumstances may be. This policy of national
protection is bigger than Bennett, although it elected
Bennett. It is easy enough for Bennett to say its application to Vancouver Island is not feasible; but this is
neither reason nor justification for refusing the application of a national policy of tariff protection to any Canadian industry. King Canute tried to hold back the tide.
Bmnctt is sitting atop of a national policy, and, presumably, has arrogated to himself the right and the authority
to direct it. There is no need for the direction of a national policy; it simply has to be applied. But the coal
industry of the Island has been outlawed from the benefits of a national policy. Why? What is the reason? Wc
know there isa huge wod pile, but who are the niggers?
Wh and what are the mysterious, hidden forces which
block every effort of the coal mining communities on the
Island to get consideration of any kind from the Governments at Ottawa and Victoria? Why should it be such
an act of virtue to prevent American dumping in Montreal, and the part of wisdom and of statesmanship to
permit the continuance of dumping of American fuel oil
in Vancouver? In the final analysis why should American
oil interests be bigger than the Canadian government and
greater than a Canadian national policy,

Decrease  in   Amount  of  Coal
Produced Here of Almost
170,000 Tons
In issuing a summary and review of
the mineral industry of B. C. for the
six months ended June 30, 1931, Hon.
W. A. McKenzie, minister of mines,
made the following comemnts. "Mining in British Columbia has withstood
the shock of world depression and extreme low metal prices, In a most satisfactory and remarkable manner. The
figures show that for the period under
review our mineral industry operated
on an output basis of 84 per cent ot
that recorded in the corresponding
half-year period of 1930—when high
record quantity production ot metals
and minerals was made.
"Coal-mining has declined In
common with the depression In
general industry, but corrective
measures, strongly endorsed and
assisted by the Government, are
having beneficial results and, It is
hoped, will re-establish the industry and assure Its future expansion.

Coal output has again declined but
not at any greater rate than was to
be expected on account of general conditions. Decreased railway traffic, industrial slowlng-down and lessened
marine business, largely accounts for
the drop in output which amounted to
17.8 per cent.
Lowered prices to the domestic consumer on British Columbia coals ln
the coast cities market should increase
output in the last half of the year.
The following table shows the output of coal by districts for the half,
year period under review and figures

previous year.

Island Coal
Production Is
Getting Better
The mining industry on Vancouver
Island Is at last showing signs of improvement, according to a statement
just made public by the Provincial Department of Minds. The production
was 68,713 tons as compared with 66,-
713 tons in June last year. South Wellington No. S produced 14,239 tons ln
June compared with 629 tons last year.
The aggregate for the whole province was little below that for June last
year, being 136,495 tons, compared with
140,810 tons ln June, 1930. The situation was more favorable than the figures indicate, tn the opinion of Hon.
W. A. McKenzie, because the production for every previous month of the
Intervening year has been much below
previous output figures.

Australian Treaty
Causes Debate
(continued from page one)
Mr. Bowman: Is it not better for
us to sell paper rather than pulp?
Mr. Neill: Yes. But pulp and sulphite are not raw material, in that
they require a considerable degree
of manufacturing. And there are circumstances in which they cannot convert the pulp and sulphite, out of the
raw timber, immediately into newsprint. Yet they are being penalized
and placed at the mercy of the newsprint companies to whom they must
sell their product.
Mr. Stevens: How are they penalized in comparison with their present
Mr. Neill: They are penalized because newsprint is getting a big preference and they are getting nothing
at all.
Mr. Bowman: Is it not better to sell
them manufactured paper?
Mr. Neill: Not if it is impossible to
manufacture the article under conditions. The hon. gentleman is not familiar with the situation. He does not
know that there are remote localities
and other conditions where it would
not be profitable to convert the timber into newsprint. But they can
make sulphite which is afterwards
taken to the factory and manufactured into newsprint. Surely, however, the hon. gentleman will not suggest that the pulp and sulphite industry should have been, to put it mildly
neglected. Surely he does not suggest
that they should be passed over and
Mr. Stevens: Has my hon. friend
received complaints from the pulp
industry of British Columbia on the
Mr. Neill: Not since the treaty was
passed, but I received an urgent request that I should endeavour to have
some consideration given pulp and
sulphite. I Was asked to see whether
the industry could not be given some
of the benefits of the treaty.
Mr. Stevens: Did my hon. friend
Mr. Neill: Yes, I tried.
Mr. Stevens: I don'.t remember.
Mr. Neill: Yes, I tried.
Mr. Stevens: I do not remember
having heard from him at all—not a
single word I never heard from him.
Mr. Neill: No?
Mr. Stevens: Not on that subject.
Mr. Neill: He has heard from me
Mr. Stevens: The hon. gentleman
said he tried to get it lin the treaty.
He never came near us, nor asked us,
nor suggested it to us.
Mr. Neill: Am I not trying to get
it in now?
Mr. Stevens: After the treaty has
been signed?
Mr. Neill: The treaty has been
signed, it is true—
Mr. Stevens: Signed by both parties and delivered.
Mr. Neill: It has been signed but
not ratified; and it is not law and is
not binding until it is ratified.
Mr. Stevens: Will you reject thc
treaty to get it in or take the treaty
without it?
Mr. Neill: That is the same question : the hon. gentleman is trying to
trick me into a false position. He asks
"Will you forego the great advantages of the treaty because certain
things are not included in it?" Well,
two blacks do not make a white, nor
do two wrongs make a right. I am
saying that the treaty is of great advantage to a large number of interests in British Columbia, but I am
pointing out that certain interests
have been ignored.
Mr. Stevens: The hon. gentleman
made no representation on their behalf during the last nine months
while the treaty has been under negotiation.
Later in the day, whilst the Australian trade treaty was under discussion, the following passages between Mr. Stevens and Mr. Neill took
Mr. Stevens: This afternoon the
hon. memmber for Comox-Alberni attempted to get away with the assertion that he had been asked by the
pulp Industry to see that they were
protected against any possible damage which might be done by this
treaty. He modified that statement
by saying that he had been asked to
speak on their behalf so that their
Interests might be protected. I told
him this afternoon and I repeat now
that he never presented that protest
to the government. He is not a shy
man, nor is he modest in the slightest
degree—I question if he knows the
meaning of the word—and if he had
in his possession a request from thc
pulp industry of British Columbia
asking for special consideration in the
matter of preferences in connection
with pulp, he never presented it to
the government.
Mr. Neill: I said I had received the
letter and I spoke absolutely correctly,, but I did not say I had it with
me. During the dinner recess I looked
up this matter and, it being my custom to close up my files at the end
of each session, I found that It was
not on this year's file. Therefore it
I must have been last session and I
must have presented it to the late
Mr. Stevens: This afternoon my
hon. friend was very positive that
he had this letter. He was very certain that we were penalizing the pulp
industry, he was very certain that we
were neglecting this industry and that
we were injuring it. I challenged him
to show how we were injuring it, how

Church Cricketers
Beat Cumberland
By 36 Runs to 10
CUMBERLAND, July 28—An extraordinary cricket game was played Saturday in Cumberland when Dean
Quainton's touring cricketers played
a Cumberland eleven. The home team
was short four or Ave of their best
batsmen and had to substitute with
real novices, some of whom had never
had a cricket bat In their hands. The
Dean's team batted first and was dismissed for the small total of 36 runs.
Vernon-Jones and McLaughlin bowled throughout, the former taking five
wickets for 16 runs and the latter five
wickets for 20 runs. It was felt, even
with a very weakened team that Cumberland would soon knock off the required runs. Wickets however fell so
fast that only 10 runs were scored, the
last wicket falling two or three minutes before the call of time. Ander-
strom for the visitors took seven wickets for four runs and Eric Qualnton
three wickets for six runs.
B.C. Electric
To Build New
Gas Plant
Will Use 180 Tons of Coal Every Day
Hear Familiar Voices... Let
Others Hear Yours
Some of the atmosphere
of home reaches out to you
over the long-distance 'telephone. One 'mm who called
home the other day from a
thousand miles away thrilled to the sound of the fam*
ily clock in the living room
striking the hour.
Listen to the voices* of
friends and relatives over
the long-distance telephone
and you feel that you are
home again. Those at home
feel that you are with them.
A voice over the longdistance telephone is at
clear and unmistakable over
a continent's distance as a
half a block away. All-Canadian lines now carry your
voice direct to points in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba. Ask
the long-distance rate clerk
for rates and information.
The B. C. Electric Railway Company will erect a new gas plant in
Vancouver, just north of the new gas
holder built a short time ago. Work
will start within a month or two and
will continue throughout thc winter.
The new plant will have a daily capacity of three million cubic feet. It
will consist of 30 vertical ovens, each
taking four and one-half tons of coal,
which will be charged every 16 hours
and will use 180 tons of coal every
24 hours.
It is expected the plant will consume 30,000 tons of B.C. coal a year.
A feature of the new plant will be
its ability to produce metallurgical
coke, for which there is nowo demand of only a few thousand tons a
year. It will be the first plant in Canada to produce coke of this kind and
will be capable of meeting any demand that may arise.

Andy Lytic, sporting editor of the
Vancouver Sun, was supposed to have
gone fishing at Home Lake with Nat.
Bevis. Thc latter with his usual
cheery manner has managed to pilot
Andy up to Cumberland, the party
arriving here at midnight on Thursday. We would not be surprised it
Nat. had slipped it over Andy after
all. Home Lake, whilst being a little
handier for Vancouveritcs can not
be compared to thc waters in our district for fishermen. Bevis has a soft
spot still in his heart for Cumberland
and forgot to tell the driver of the
car, which happened to bc Andy to
take the turn for Home Lake and
kept right on up the highway. This
Home Lake, Andy was heard to remark is a long way out of Nanaimo,
Bevis and I am wondering if we are
on the right road. Thc latter chuckles
nnd thinks of his old cronies in Cumberland as he assures Andy that he
is on thc light road. The gang arrived in Cumberland and as we are
penning these few lines, Andy is
sleeping peacefully, evidently thinking of the job in Vancouver where he
decs not have to put in an appearance
until thc streets arc well aired.
Before retiring Thursday night a
solemn vow had bcen made that no
fish under two feet would he taken
and no less than twelve dozen would
satisfy. If Bill Metzger, of the composing room of the Sun hears Lytic
boast about his fishing trip to Cumberland, half of thc printers of thc
terminal city will be coming up here.
It's dollars to doughnuts Lyttle will
have a few sunspots in his paper
when he gets back, if it is only to
arouse in Art Dingman, chief of the
Province sporting staff a desire to go
one better. We hope this district will
be kind to Nat. Bevis and his friend
Lytic and give them just the fishhing
they are after. Methinks Bevis though
Is not much of a fisherman. It's a lead
pipe cinch he is after Andy for something or other. Perhaps being boosted
for Sam Davidson's job—and right
here let us say. Nat would make good.
