Report of Fire
Tendered To
City Council
City Fathers Authorize Old
School to Be Re-Shingled;
Many Streets to Be Treated
With Tarvia.
A very comprehensive report from
Flre Chief C. J. Pairnham was reail hy
the city clerk at the Council meeting
held on Monday. The chief's report
dealt with the recent convention of
Pacific Coast Fire Chiefs' Association
which was held in Vancouver and
very largely attended. Chief Parnham In his report states that undoubtedly a great deal of good will
result from thc convention, some very
excellent pnpers and many suggestions heing advanced during the four
days' session. Concluding lie thanked the council for the opportunity afforded him of attending the convention in company with the deputy
chief, J. H. Cameron.
The Mayor was in the chair With
Aldermen Parnham, Mumford, Williams and Bannerman present. Minutes of the last meeting were adopt-
ed as read,and in addition to the report from the fire chief, a communication was (received from the Cutout-Hand Electric Lighting Company
stating that a general meeting of the
shareholders had been called for
Thursday, August the 29th when the
offer of $25,000.00 from the council
for the purchase of the Electric Light
Company  would   be  dealt with.
Mr. A. MacKinnon, secretary of the
Cumberland Hoard of School Trustee*
was present and on behalf of the
trustees, asked for a grant, to enable
them to re-shingle one or both
schools. The secretary stated that an
approximate cost of the work to be
done to the old school roof would
total 91.500. Both roofg were in need
of attention, but if the council dectd-
eded that at the present time work on
ouly one building could be undertaken, it would have to be the old school.
After due consideration it was decided to give the school trustees power
to proceed with the work, the Mayor
intimating, that aa far as possible,
all local help be employed.
Billg and accounts presented were
ordered referred to the finance committee and if found correct, to be paid
Reports of committees were also presented all chairmen reporting satisfactory progress in all departments.
Under the heading of new business
it wns decided to ask the water
works company to level off the hole
left by tlieir workmen after doing repairs to the water pipes iu front of
Wilcock & Co., butcher shop and also
repair the sidewalk in front of the
Cumberland Motor Works garage.
Some discussion arose ro the state
of the city streets and on it being suggested that whilst the company oiling
the roads for the government was in
the district it might be possible to
have them work on certain of the city
streets. Eventually Mr. Beavan, he
district engineer was reached by telephone mid an approximate cost of
the work proposed given. The board
of works was instructed to interview I
the representative of the company and [
make arrangements for tho work to |
be undertaken. j
City Clerk Cope notified the council
that he hud been unable to ohtnln
anyone to act as clerk whilst he was
on holiday. He suggested that tbe
night watchman be transferred to the
daytime and Mr. Mclntyre be employed ns night watchman for two weeks.
Ah there would not be much clerical
work (luring the next two weeks, the
city fathers acted on the clerk's suggestion,

Major W. MacKenzie is visiting his
father in Victoria after an absence

Major MacKenzie said:
"We hope to erect large plants i:i
Canada during the course of the next

; MR. A. W. NEILL ANO
j   HON W. R. MOTHERWELL
HERE ON TUESDAY LAST
The Hon. W. R. Motherwell, Minister of Agriculture at Ottawa and Mr,
A. W. Neill, member for this riding
were '" Cumberland on Tuesday afternoon for an hour or so and m?t
many of the residents at the Waverley
Hotel. Mr. Motherwell was ln this
district visiting relatives about twenty years ago and many of the old timers wended their way to the Waverley
to meet tho minister of agriculture.
Mr. Motherwell is accompanied by
Mrs. Motherwell and other members
of his party include, Mr. and Mrs.
Charles McDonald, of Vancouver and
Miss Cummings, secretary to the minister of agriculture.
On Wednesday the party visited several farms tn tlie Comox Valley and
had lunch at Little River with Mr.
and Airs. A. W. B. Paul.
Baseball v. Cricket
Novel Game on Wednesday
Night
T)ie Cumberland baseball team,
members ofthe Comox District Twilight league challenged the Cumberland cricketers to a game of cricket.
The challenge being accepted the
game will take plaoe on the "Y"
ground on Wednesday night next at
5:30. Local baseballers are of the
oplnon that equipped with such a
wide bat as a cricket bat, they can
knock anything that is offered by tbe
local bowlers. There is not the slightest doubt about the baseballers hitting a full-tosesd ball out of the
ground, but their opponents will most
certainly not offer that kind of a ball.
What they will do to a ball thnt
breaks from the leg side, then on the
nevt delivery probably will break
from the off side remains to be seen,
A. E. S. Leggatt of the Cowichan
team, one of the most forceful batters
in British Columbia today was absolutely beaten by a break ball on Saturday last, delivered by R V. Hall
and if the local baseballers can hit
lhat kind of a ball they will be a decided acquisition to the Cumberland
cricket team. As a result of tho
game the latter are confident of
gaining one or two recruits to their
ranks.
A return game of baseball will be
played next Friday, hut so fnr as we
can learn, the cricketers are not saying much about it. Most of thom
have never handled a baseball hai,
so until tbey try their hand, silence
appears to be tlieir motto.
Mr. C. C. Lacon, uf Denman Island,
sent word over to Cumberland today,
enquiring nbout prospects for a game
of cricket witba Denman Island team.
Mr, Lacon Btates thatthere are several
old countrymen over on the Inland
who would very much like to engage
in a game. The secrtary of the loc-il
club has been instructed to write and
offer to play Mr. Lacon's team on
Sunday afternoon, August the 25th. I
Ab the Denmanites have no equipment

Scant Consideration
For Offenders
"Blind Pigging" Will Not Be
Tolerated; Will Turn Deaf
Ear to Appeals Where Violators Are Given Prison Terms.
Attorney-General Pooley makes tin;
announcement that there are to.i
many applications coming before htm
asking for clemency In the case or
persons who have been convicted of
illegal selling of liquor in the province. These applications for special
consideration on tbo part of the department, after conviction will in fu-
lur receive scant  consideration.
Mr. Pooley, In giving this statement
to The Colonist yesterday explained
that his stand was not taken from
any desire to be regarded as lacking
human reeling. He. however, called
attention to tbe fact that there were
so many applications coming forward
looking lor clemency after the law
of the land had been disregarded,
especially with respect to the practice
of "blind pigging" that it became necessary to call a halt.
His advice, therefore, to the people
who are prone to fall into the error
of violating the liquor law's of tho
province i« to take thought earlier
than has oftentimes been done by
them.
"Let them think of tbose who are
dependent upon them before they
transgress instead of after it." said
Mr. Pooley.

Of
no
clemency  in  such   cases,"   he   added.
The Attorney-General went on to
say that there wore altogether too
many violations of the liquor laws.
While thero might not he as many
as tbere had been some time ago. yet
there was no reason for any of these
offenses, and he was against encouraging unlawful acts by granting leniency. Ir these people would onlv
realize tiiat tliey would have to pay
the penalty, and in tho absence of
ability to pay a fine must go to jail,
or in otlier cases where a prison term
was called for, serve a term, there
might be less disposition to Haunt the
law.
In the Interests of good government
therefore, nnd the creation of due
■respect for. the law, he feels It necessary to turn a deaf ear to appeals
on sympathetic grounds where violators  are  given   prison   terms.
the local secretary was also instructed to offer thom the use of any of
Cumber land's equipment Another
suggestion made by a local player Is
that Cumberland take thei equipment
over to Denman and play a return
game early next month before the
weather breaks.

PEDESTRIANS, keep to the left. Ever since
the unfortunate accident which occurred on

happened and once on the Island highway, and we |

that if the idea could become universal the number of pedestrians being run down by automobile

Federal Minister of
Agriculture Talks
on Farm Problems
Reason for Depletion in Dairy Cattle is Foreign
Demand for Clean Canadian Cows
The ationduncc ;ii lho meeting call-were rather fond ol turning their af-
ed under the joint auspices ot" thc Co*
mnx Agricultural Association and the
Comox Fanners' Institute to hear the
Hon. W. R. Motherwell, Federal Minister ot Agriculture, was very disappointing, there being but a mere handful present when there should have
been hundreds. However, those who
did attend listened to a very interesting and instructive address on Canadian Agricultural problems.
Mayor Theed Pearse occupied thc
chair and on behalf of the citizens of
Courtenay and district extended to
Mr. Motherwell a very hearty welcome.
Dr. G. K. MacNaughton. M.L.A., was
then called upon aud said that it was
with a great deal ol pleasure he welcomed Mr. Motherwell on behalf of
his constituents. While there were
different industries in thc district, agriculture was the .spinal column and
he thought the Dominion Government
was to be congratulated In having a
cabinet minister in thc person of the
Minister of Agriculture who thought
it was worth his while to visit the outlying districts and he was sure every
farmer would apreciate the importance
of his visit to the district.
Mr. A. W. Neill, M.P.. followed und
expressed on behalf of his friends and
himself his thanks to the chairman
for taking the chair, also to Dr. MacNaughton for being present. This was
not a partizan meeting and it was a
fine tribute that they were there. He
would have liked to have had the opportunity to answer till Hon. Mr. Bennett but he understood that this was
fairs over to boards and this matter
had bcen turned over lo the board ofl
Railway Commissioners who had decided lhat there was no grievance. Thc
matter   was   now   before   the   Privy
He then referred to the
stump-pulling dmonstration and said
lhat 2$ years ago when member in the
local House for Alberni he had really
ed thc difficulty of trying to clear land
at a cost of from two to four hundred
dollar
cleared was not worth more than sev
enty-flve. At that time he got a vote
in the estimates for $4,000 wilh which
to buy a stump-puller but the government "bust up" and after all these
years a similar scheme was to be tried
out. But he did not think it could be
done lor less than two or three hundred dollars an acre. Mr. Hughes, of
Merville. had pul the tiue-stion to him
as to why thc department or research
should not put their energies and re-
chemical method of destroying the
stumps and he thought this was a
sources together to discover some
matter Mr. Motherwell might look
into.
With reference to the banning of
oleomargarine, Mr. Neill said that
while he had taken to himself a good
deal of the credit for this, Mr. Motherwell wa.s entitled to a great deal of
it for they had his backing and without his aid they could not have put

in Saskatchewan over the same period
in the previous year. Exports to the
United States in cream, milk, condensed milk and cheese had increased.
They had heard a good deal about
a shortage of 101,000 cows, The United
States had been short of cows for some
years and a number of the farmers
had been tempted to sell their cows
for the fancy prices offered. The reason for this was that they had the
healthiest cows in the world. Mr. Mo
therwell dwelt on thc establishment of
T. B. tested areas and hoped that before long Vancouver Island would be
one of these areas but it would be two
or three years yet before this could
be doue. Howevr, the large number
of clean herds was a magnet to the
United States buyers and that was
where these 101.000 cattle had gone.
He also touched on the matter of
British preference and thought that
other things being equal we should
have, flrst, a preferencial trade within
the Empire, second inter-provincial
trade, and, third, we should give the
home town the preference. j
In closing, Mr. Motherwell spoke'
very highly of Mr. A. W. Neill, one of!
the Independent members of the!
House and, said he, if there ever was
an independent member between here
and Thnbucto, they had him right
here in Comox-Alberni. No government could give as good government
as had been given in the United Kingdom, in the United Slates and in Canada without the independent voter.
A hearty vote of thanks was accorded Mr. Motherwell on motion by Mr.
W. A. B. Paul, seconded by Mr. R. U.

Immediately following the war, said
Mr. Motherwell, everybody's business
went inlo chaos but the farmers were
confused when the price of their goods
went down although the cost kept up.
On thc Prairies farmers were ruined.
All over thc civilized world there was
a very sad slate of affairs in agriculture. But in no other nation had agriculture come back so quickly as in
Canada and since then it has come
back to a reasonable position of secur-
ity, During the past four or five years
the farmers had been making gains

were particularly fortunate in having

were prodigal they were bound to suffer.

SUMMER FRUITS
FOR WINTER USE
Preserve  in  Summer  So  That
Health May Be Preserved
During the Winter
By Betty Barclay
'"Trya dish of home-made peaches,
Alice.    Mother put them up herself."
Such an invitation was quite common years ago, but -rather rare today.
Far too rare, as a matter of fact, to
please thousands of Alice's and hun
droits of thousands of Henry's and
Fred's with a "sweet tooth" just as
highly developed as was the sweet
tooth of a decade ago.
The old-fashioned pound for pound
preserves were almost Invariable
looked upon as dessert. Few, if any,
realized that they were much more.
As a matter of fact, a well-sweetened
preserve, conserve, jam or jelly. Ih a
jar or glass of winter fuel stored
away for the use of our body engines
during cold weather.
Realizing also thai the fruit or berries are containers of valuable minerals, salts and vitamines, it is easy
to appreciate tlie fact that a welt
stocked preserve closet Is a comhin
ation of a medicine chest, fuel storeroom and dessert  closet.
We cannot all own fur coats for
winter use. but we can supply intern
at body heat quickly through the medium of sugar foods, sweetened preserves and such foods. Internal heat
is much better than outside protection from cold as given hy the fur
coat and woolen sweater. Without
internal heat, the costliest fur may
leave us shivering. With sufficient
internal heat, it may not be necessary.
So purchase summer fruits and
berries when they are fully ripened
and obtainable at moderate eost, and
can, preserve, or pickle them in sugar, as you see fit. When winter
comes you will have on hand, sufficient fuel to carry you over until the
balmy breezes of Spring arrive.
Of course you may purchase much
of the jam and jelly you use, but with
a home-preserved supply on hand,
you will eat it more oft en,and be prepared at any time Of or the company
that always appreciates the peaches,
plums or berries I hat mother cans
herself.
The pound for pound recipe does
not seem to be quite as common today as it once was, but the thre"
parts sugar to four parts fruit recipe
lias taken Its plaee with a vengeance.
Here are a few easily followed recipes whicli you may use between now
and   late  Fall:

Parents ilo not know by instinct the
proper way in which to bring up a
child. Some of them do gain knowledge from experience.aiul some ol
them are willing and anxious to learn
from others. The up-bringing of n
child is a serious and, sometimes. ;•
difficult matter, if It Isto be done
propeiii ii requires training and preparation for the task. To the person
who feels that our ancestors got along
very well and reared families withoul
training, we can only say that the
number of unhappy Individuals, tho
number who hive never adjusted
themselves to life, the innay who find
I life a burden, the group who are a
I nuisance to others.io say nothing of
the few who have real mental and
'physical health, are ample proof thai
the old system was not a success.
Parent Education is » real need;

Importance of proper preparation in

#    #    , Lasqueti  is  twenty-two miles  north
of Nanaimo and twelve from Craig's
Crossing, nearest railway point on
the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway.
Vancouver Island.
The island is twelve miles long and
averages less than three miles in
width. Vet its live lakes provide Ashing and canoeing; Its woods are filled
with deer and pheasants, and its
shores are an Invitation to the holiday
makers.
On Its twenty-five miles of road
thero are two automobiles.
Sheep Herds Fast (irowing
Lasqueti Island was for years the
home of Gulf fishermen, being close
to the heart of former Gulf fishing
grounds. But the call of the sheen
herder has been heard iathls as well
as many other Gulf islands .and Lasqueti Islanders are making sheep-
raising their leading industry. And
now hundreds of sheep roam the little Island. They have nothing to tear
cougar, bear or wolves, as there aro
none on the Island.
Lasqueti Island is a land of rocky
uplands and fertile valleys, iitled with
old glacial silt. Here have been
planted productive, small orchard*
as well as vegetable gardens.
The single logging company on
Lasqueti Island produced about 2,-
000,000 feet of logs last year. Some
tif the settlers are considering the
erection of a new sawmill, lt is said
the island mountains contains about
50.000,000 Teet of marketable lumber.
CopUer Found on Inland
Lasqueti Island has its sbare of
copper claims. Tbere is a vein of
mineral ore said to run through most
of thc Gulf of Georgia, some of thc
Lasqueti claims are still being worked.
The best known harbors of Lasqueti are Tucker Bay, in the centre,
and False Bay. The latter. has the
hotel, Lasqueti boasts a post office,
and rural mall delivery has been in
existence for twelve years. There is
government telephone service on the
island, andthree schools adequately
serve the residents.
Like Large Family
The settlers on Lasqueti Island are
like a large aud happy family. They
have their quarrels as have other
families, but they do not air their domestic troubles to outsiders.
Living Costs Low
They look forward with confidence
to the time when the beauties of the
island and the opportunities in sheep-
raising, in mixed farming or of living
In quiet retirement will lure settlers
from the coast cities. They claim that
the low cost of living in comfort at
Lasqueti Island will make friends for
it among many whose incomes make
living in the cities beyond their
means.
For instance they say thc taxes on
100 acres at Lasqueti are only $13 a
year, and thoso who build summer
cottages at Lasqueti would put themselves in a position to enjoy the luxury ora summer holiday cheaply.
>amed by Spaniard
Lasqueti Island was named In 1791
by the Spanish naval officer Jose
Maria Navarez, iu command of the
exploring schooner Saturnfa iu Lt.
Eliza expedition.
Eminent geologists say Lasqueti
was the earliest formed of the Islands
in the Gulf of Georgia.
While the Island was named by a
Spaniard, two important parts were
named after a distinguished British
naval officer. Tucker Bay was named after Rear Admiral Tucker, R.N.,
Trcmertou Mountain was named by
Capt. Richards, H.N., in command of
H.M.S. Plumper on geopraphlcal survey In 1800.
Tremerton Mountain was so named
because It resembles tho knot on a
hill In Cornwall on which Is built
Tremerton Castle, the family home
of tbo Tuckers.
FamouH as "SqiilMj"
Those who have read the book,
"poor Man's Rock." by Sinclair, will
be interested to learn that tills rock
Is at the south end of Lasqueti Island,
named by Sinclair In his book a*
"Squitly Island.' ' Ho also mentions
"Point Old," which is really Point
Voung , so that Lasqueti Island has
ancient and modem history.
Poor Man's Rock lies only fifty
yards from shore. At low tide the
rock is above water, but the tide rises
approximately fifteen feet at this Point
Many visitors to the island make it
a point to visit this spot.
"Klntr Hurry Hlggtns
No story of Lasqueti Is complete
without mentioning two old soldiers
Capt. Pearce and picturesque Harry
Higgins. There stalwarts helped to
hold San Juan Island during the joint
occupancy of that island by British
and American troops.
