much discussion the following resolution was passed and will be sent
to the board of management of thu
"That owing to the present unsatisfactory condition of the Coal Mining Industry on Vancouver Island
and throughout British Columbia, resulting from direct competition of

benefits to be derived by the Royal

The Cumberland Eagles' eleven
surprised their most ardent follower;', on Sunday last when a four to
one defeat was administered to the
St. Andrews team of Powell Rivor.
The score does not hy any means in
dieate the play, foi- as real football
went, Powell River boys had a slight
edge, but the rushing tactics of the
locals never gave the visitors a
chance to settle down. It was a case
of youth with speed and determination against a combination of youth
and age with experience and two
distinct styles of soccer were served
\t\. to the fans with the result that
from a spectator's point of view the
game was interesting to watch from
beginning to end. The local boys are
to he congratulated on their fine
showing against their more experienced opponents and the work of
Watson, Campbell ano! McFarlane in
the front rank was noteworthy. The
halves formed a very good line with
Conrod playing a real good game.
McFarlane in goal had very little to
do, the backs, Brown and McLellan
playing a very useful game. The.
visitors were best served at centre
half ity Savage, who, last summer
was a resident of Cumberland. He
was about the best man on the field
and very rarely wasted a ball. Time
after time he made a valaint effort
to get his forwards going but the
bustling ploy of the homesters upset ull his fine work.
Tommy Carney refereed the game
in an impartial manner, although one
or two of liis decisions did not meet
\vith the approval of a few of the
The teams lined up shortly after
2 p.m. and within a few minutes of
tlie kick off, the visitors were one up
through Blown deflecting the ball
into h.is own goal from a well directed cross from the wing. This reverse did not by any means dampen
the ardour of the home players and
from a well placed pass by Campbell to Watson the home outside
right, a few minutes afterwards, the
scores were made level when Watson
rounded his man wiht ease and with
a great burst of speed mnde for goal.
Steadying himself for n final shot
he gave the visiting goalie absolutely no chance to save. From the
centre kick the home forwards
swarmed round the visiting goal, the
defence having an anxious time for
a few minutes. Play was transferred to the Cumberland end where
loo much dallying with the ball spoil-
id a good chance for the visitors.
Half time arrived with play in mid-
After the usual breather, play
wis resumed witli the visitors assuming the aggressive whicli, however,
was short lived as from a cross from
the Cumberland right. McFarlane
carried the ball close to Powell River
goal where a regular mix-up took
place before the inside right mun-
ajred to .scramble the ball through
giving Cumberland the lead. Back
again went the visitors in a most
determined effort to equalize but
their efforts were fruitless, Rain
began to fall heavily nnd play in
consequence suffered, none of the
players appearing to be able to control ihe greasy ball. Campbell put
the issue beyond doubt when he put

On Wednesday afternoon a telegram was received from Mortimer,
the  old  Cumberland  United  player
The new fire truck commenced to
do its stuff in real earnest on Monday night whon the department received a call to a blaze in Cumberland's Chinatown. At the tmie of
the alarm, 7.30 Monday evening, the
members of the fire department had
the new truck out in the vicinity of
tbe Islander office, doing a little
practice. No time wus lost in getting down to the scene of the blaze,
which proved to be a boarding house
at the far end of the Chinese settlement. After a strenuous time the
! blaze wa.s got under control, but not
before the building was gutted. The
truck was back in Cumberland at
K:2() and the firemen speak well of
the behaviour of their latest acquisition.
Miss Hannah Cunlitfe, a former
resident of Cumberland, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. John Cunliffe, of Milton Street, Nnnuimo, died this week
after a long illness, interment taking place in the Nanaimo Cemetery
on Wednesday from the family residence.
The late Miss Cunlitre was very
well knowti in Cumberland where the
family resided for ten years, leaving
here fourteen years ago to reside in
the Hub City. In addition to her
sorrowing parents, she leaves to
mourn her loss, two sisters, Mrs.
Gladys Parkes and Mr, R. Case. Mrs.
Charles Grant, of this city was aunt
of the deceased lady.
With the Cricketers
The drawing of the Cumberland
Cricket club for !J0 gallons of gasoline, donated by a well wisher of the
club and a decorated cake donated
by Mr. Mann, of Mann's Bakery were
held at the week end . The gasoline
should have been drawn for at the
dance at the Imperial Pavilion on
Saturday last but owing to one book
of tickets not being returned until
Sunday morning ,the drawing took
place at noon on Sunday last with
Mr. Gretton, head green keeper of
Powell River drawing the winning
ticket for the gasoline, No. 289. This
ticket was held by Tom Carney. The
decorated cake was drawn for on
Saturday night when Miss Norma
Pnrnham drew the winning ticket,
No. 203, held by Mrs. R. K. Walker
of Dunsmuir avenue.
On Wednesday night a full practice of the Cumberland cricketers
was held with one or two new members turning out. A game will be
played against Nanaimo on May 11
which does not leave much time for
practice. Practice will be the order
of the day from now on and any of
the members not being able to get
down to the field evenings can always get the equipment during the
day for an hour's practice.
Anyone desirous of joining the
club is asked to get in touch with
the secretary, J .Vernon-Jones.
Quite a few of thc members of the
club were noticed practicing at the
nets on Wednesday evening and
again on Thursday, and after the
practice a short meeting was held,
necessitated by the great amount of
damage done at the ground. Every
window in the Pavilion has been
broken, the roof of the building ha3
also been torn off, fences broken
down and holes dug into the turf.
It was decided thnt anyone wanting
to use the "Y" ground, which comes
under the control of the Cricket club
ask for permission to use same. We
ore given to understand that this
will be strictly enforced and that in
future, application for use of the
ground must be made to the club.

The Cumberland Islander!
TONIGHT the annual ball of tho ladies' auxiliary to the Cumberland General Hospital
will be held, the proceeds of which will be
devoted to the purchase of linens and other supplies which comes directly under the wurk of the
auxiliary. The ladies of the auxiliary are doing
a noble work in the community ana il behoves
every citizen to attend the ball and show by their
presence that they are in sympathy with the
Cumberland boasts of one of the most up-to-
date hospitals in the province and since the new
wing, which was opened by the Governor-General
on the occasion of his last visit to Cumberland,
the local institution has been kept busy. With
the addition of many more rooms to the hospital,
necessitated the ladies' auxiliary providing more
supplies and the work of this worthy body has
been increased tremendously. It is Imped that

with the growing feeling in Canada, similar to

Empire Dav. lt is not a holiday. It is a day
which high ideals of citizenship ar* discussed and
when are'explained the glories of the Empire and
the part that Canada shared in them as one ot

The usual 24th ol' .May celebration will be held
in Cumberland and it would perhaps be a good

could be induced to come to Cumberland on that
day and address tho gathering on ideals of citizenship.
FOR MORE than (10 years lho Queen's birthday, the anniversary of the birth of Queen
Victoria, was celebrated in Canada as perhaps no other holiday was. Tlie reason was seasonal as well as national, lt was tho announcement that summer had come that fishing was

An Appeal to Cumberland
Cumberland as a city has ever
shown herself more than generous
toward her children; in raising funds
for the May Queen; and in the encouragement of sports—both land,
and water; thus helping greatly in
their physical development. May we

Big Drop in |
Auckland, N.Z.—(By thc Canadian Press).—Cricket and football
have taken the place of murder and
dannibalslm as the national outdoor
sport of the Solomon Islands.
Dr. C. E. Fox, in charge of the
native education on the Islands, has
just returned here with the news
that the natives are beginning to
forget their barbarous pastimes and
to live a more orderly life.
Solomon Islanders make very good
footballers, even though they pla>
bare-footed", said Dr. Fox. "They
are very skillful at passing and
markably fast.
"Cricket is our national game
however", Dr. Fox added. "I do not
think you will hnd brighter cricket
in any part of the world. We play
matches of two innings a.side, and
the time limit is two anda half hours.
Consequently, no time is lost, and
there is no such thing as playing
for a draw. In one match 56 runs
were scored off one stroke. The ball
was hit into the sea, and square leg
who objected strenuously to chasing
it, was finally thrown into the water
by the other members of his team.
The batsmen, meantime, were steadily piling up the runs.
"On another occasion the ball was
hit into a tree, which was cut down
by the fieldsmen. The rules of lost
ball and out of bounds do not apply
when there are 22 enthusiastic Solomon Islanders on the field. They
are magnificent fieldsmen, and can
catch any sort of ball with ease.
Their bowling too, is very accurate
but their batting is, naturaly, rather
unpolished. It is interesting to
watch the batsmen take centre. This
is regarded as a form of ritual, for
as soon as it is done, the batsmen
promptly steps back a bit to leg,
and prepares to hit hard at everything."
Although Lord Dewar ls a bachelor
and apparently a confirmed bachelor,
he seemingly entertains a high appreciation of the fair sex, judging by some
of the witty sayings he fires off about
them from time to time. Here are a
few of the best.
"The rond to success is filled with
women pushing their husbands along."
"No man Ls so good but a woman can
make him better."

Windsor, Ont. April 25 (Canadian
Press)—"The new China is calling
her sons home and within 25 years
there will not be one Chinese left in
Canada", declared Dr. Teyhi Hsieh
at a meeting here. Dr. Hseih is a
graduate of Cambridge and for years
was the only practising Chinese
lawyer in England. He was at one
time Chinese consul-general to Australia, later a delegate to the opium
conference in Geneva and now is acting manager of the Chinese Trude
Bureau in Boston, represents the
Williiamsport Institute o f Politics
and is a representative of the National Chung Hwa News Association
of Shanghai.
Dr. Hsieh traced the history of
China as a republic, telling of the,
strides that have been made since
she had been liberated from the yoke
of the Manchus.
"The Chinese in Canada", be said,
"have been looked on with disfavor.
They have been accused of living on
a pittance and sending all then-
money to China. It must be remembered that in order to enter Canada1
before the Exclusion Act, a Chinese!
had to have $500.   He had to pledge ■
$2000 to the Manchus before he
could leave China. Thus he was
$2,500 in debt when he landed here,
and there was probably a family to
keep at home. In cases where
Chinese have had their families here,
and have had no debts to pay in
China, they have been known for
their liberality. China has awakened and resources are now being developed. We need leadership mosr
and that is why we are calling ou
sons home. Do not look down oi
the Chinese laundryman and restaurant keeper. They are not tbat
by choice. In most cases they are
political fugitives ,the highest type
of Chinese and it is they wbo will
be the leaders in tbe new China.
Canada has taught them how to
make a living. They will go back to
China and teach the Chinese how to

'Round tlie Corner
A few weeks ago Baby ^'as sickly,
underweight. Food didn't a^ree. But now
he's safely 'round (he corner—gaining steadily.
Nestle's Evaporated Milk helped him 'round
this troublesome corner*
And here's thc Reason! Nestles Evaporated Milk li
just the best of fresh cow's milk with part ofthe water
removed—then sealed and Sterilized in air-tiuht containers. Add water again and you have absolutely
pure, safe milk—hut more readily digestible than
ordinary milk because tbe hirtie fat kIoHuIcs of the
milk have been broken up into small ones of the same
size as in Mother's milk. Also, the curds which form
in the stomach when Nestle's Evaporated Milk is used
arc soft and flaky nnd therefore easily digestible.
Use Nestle's Evaporated Milk for Your Baby. Use
it in coffee—in cocoa—in tea. Use it in nil cooking
and as a beverage by diluting with one to two parts
