Cumberland Eleven!
Defeats Nanaimo j
BAG LIMITS OUTLINED:  WES   £   The  Merry Makers'  orchestra,
The Cumberland Cricket team!
journeyed to Nanaimo on Sunday to j
meet a Hub City eleven in. the open-t
ing game of the season. F. V. Hall, j
captain of the Cumberland eleven
won the toss and decided to put Nanaimo in first. The bowling was entrusted to P. McLaughlin and J. Vernon-Jones. Both bowlers got a wicket in their first overs at a cost of one
run. Vernon-Jones began to tire
and was replaced by S. Gough after
the former had bowled five overs
for one wicket nt a cost of thirteen
runs. P. McLaughlin was in deadly
form with the ball and he and S,
Gough easily dismissed the remainder of the Nanaimoites for a total of
55 runs. At. one stage of the game
the score rend 4 wickets for 3 runs
but Unsworth and Brooks getting
together carried the score to 6 for
28, the sixth wicket adding 20 more.
The fielding of the Cumberland team!
was excellent and had Gough and
Taylor taken two very hard catches
of Vernon-Jones bowling, the score
of the Nanaimo team would have
been very low. Gough missed Unsworth when the latter had only two
runs to his credit. He celebrated
his life by scoring a very valuable
After lunch Cumberland went into bat and disaster soon came, Dando, Idiens and Andrews being dismissed, the score reading 3 for 11.
Hall and McLaughlin carried the
score to 31 before the latter was
stumped by Unsworth, Hall went immediately after without any addition
to the score. Gough scored a valuable eleven runs at this stage of the
game, but Vaughan and Guy were
dismissed cheaply. It began to look
bad for Cumberland. 7 wickets down
for 51 runs; 8 and 9 wickets for thc
same score. Cumberland required
five runs to win ns Vernon-Jones
came into bat. He and Carney were
partners, the first ball Vernon-Jones
got produced a single and by steady
play the Nanaimo score was overhauled, the last wicket putting on
30 runs before Carney was dismissed
by Heaton. Carney fully justified
his inclusion in the team as in addition to his very valuable 24 he ran
A. J. Taylor a close second for fielding honors.
In the Nanaimo second innings,
P. McLaughlin did wonderfully well
taking 7 wickets for 13 runs and in
the two innnings 12 wickets for 41
runs. The home team put on 37
runs for 8 wickets, before applying
the closure. With one hour to go
Cumberland were faced with only
twelve runs to get to win the game,
These were easily knocked off by
Idiens and Dando . The second innings closed at 81 runs for 7 wicket3.
Cumberland travelled down under
difficulties not being tible to take
either a scorer or umpire, due to
lack of transportation. Nanaimo
very kindly provided umpires and
scorers, one of the umpires (hia
name could not be obtained) proved
to be one of the snappiest and fairest seen in many a long year.
The game was very enjoyable, the
ground in excellent condition and
the weather all that could be desired,

British Columbia's coal industry,
may receive welcome help in the use,
of pulverized coal in the heating and!
generating' plant of the Canadian'
National Hotel in Vancouver. This
type of fuel is now being considered
Although no decision may be expected for several months, Mr. John
S. Archibald of Montreal, hotel architect, informed the Province that
the matter is under advisement.
Boilers for the hotel, which have
already been ordered, will be so constructed, ho stated, that either fuel
oil or pulverized coal may be utilized
Mr. Archibald declared that the policy of the company is to use home
products of Eritish Columbia as
much as possible in the operation of
the hotel as well as in its construction.
The idea thnt pulverized coal
should he used in the new hotel was
broached by The Province in an editorial in the issue of May 2 and Mr.
Archibald stated this morning that
this point of view would receive careful consideration by Canadian National officials. The matter will be
taken up with Sir Henry Thornton
at the earliest possible moment.
Because of peculiar construction
difficulties, contract for the boilers
of the hotel was let some time ago.
At that time it was specially stated
that these were to be so constructed
that nny one of several forms of
generating power could be installed.
This was done, Mr. Archibald explained, with the view of investigating the possibilities of pulverized
coal, as well as fuel oil.
According to Mr. Archibald, the
problem will probably be resolved
within the next twelve months, although there will be no need to make
a final decision for nearly eighteen
months when the final stage of contraction is reached.
On his present supervising tour
Mr. Archibald is expending most of
his energies on deciding award of
the stone contract. This, he says,
will be given to British Columbia
manufacturers if at all possible.
The next group of contracts fol-
lowifr the award of the stonework
to bc decided will be the mechanical
suli-trades. These will bo awarded
within the next six weeks, he believes.
There will he a dance in tho Vet
emus' llnll on Saturday night, commencing nt 9.30. There will be no
whist drive but tho announcement
Is made that thc dance will be a
regular top-nntcher with the Merry
Makers' orchestra supplying the music. Admission will be 26c for la.

Appeal has been dismissed by
Chief Justice Morrison in Supreme
Court of the City of Cumberland
from an arbitrators' award allowing
Cumberland Electric Light Co. Ltd.
$74,000 for its electric light franchise.

Great   Change   Ii   Introduced  in  Connection   With   Forthcoming
Fcder.il   Election
On Sunday last before a fair attendance the Cumberland Eagles engaged the Powell River Mooso in an
exhlbtion game of soccer and won
by a 5-0 score.
The Powell River Moose is the
champion team of Powell River, but
apart from the fact that they displayed a knowledge at times of combination, their general play was not
that of champions. The pick of the
team was Savage at centre half and
Davis at right fullback, the forward
line  being very  weak.
The Eagles played their usual
kick and rush game whicb has proved
effective up to the present time
ngainst any team they have played.
Tho forward lino breaks fast—there
is little combination—the ball is
either passed by the centre half or
centre forward via the long pass
route to a wing or up through centre
and a dash made for goal—sometimes it "clicks" and sometimes not,
In any event the Eagles have speed
to burn. The writer is curious to
see the Eagles performing against a
team which has shooting ability as
well as combination.
Referee T. Carney started the
game on schedule and the first half
of the game was anything but spectacular from a spectator's point of
view, the play being generally haphazard. With the first half about
two-thirds gone, Campbell, local
centre forward received a pass between the fullbacks nnd hud no
trouble in boating defence and goalie
for the only goal of the first half.
In    the  second    half   the   Eagles
bagged  four  more:  two  by  Campbell, ono by Davis nnd one by Bartoldi.    There was little or no combination  on the  local  forward  line
in this half, practically each player
I working indivdually.    Weir brought
I fhe spectators to their feet on u long
shot   from   centre   field   which   the
J Moose goalie had to tip over the bar
j to save.    The play was about equal

THE VALUE of land is mainly the value of
the publie works and services tu which it
gives access. To some extent il is the value
of desirable neighbors; but this again is largely
conditioned by publie services, for where publie
services are greatest the greatest number of
desirable neighbors will be found.
Well-judged public services add to the value ol
the land affected an amount much in excess of
the eost of services. If the entire eost of such
services were paid by the land-owners they would
still have a considerable unearned profit.
Taxes on land values are a partial payment (at
present grossly insufficient) for actual services
Other taxes are a thoroughly arbitrary confiscation of indivdual earnings—based not on what
the city does for the taxpayer but on what lie
does for himself to the benefit of his neighbors.
The economic and moral condition'of any community cannot be healthy while such taxes are
in force, nor while land-owners are able to escape
with paying a small fraction of the expenses
incurred for their benefit.
AX ASPECT affecting the consumption of goods ol
foreign manufacture and having a distinct bearing upon the "Trade within the Empire" campaign
is the extensive circulation of magazines of United States
origin, with their tremendous bulk of American advertising.
This reading of foreign magazines not only hurts the
production of British and Canadian publications, with the:
large staffs of writers, printers, engravers and others,
but .through the volume of advertising they carry, encourages and stimulates the purchase of other foreign
made articles. It also tends to create un American sentiment and viewpoint, rather than to encourage a Canadian spirit and patriotism.
Speaking on this subject, in an address to the Women's Institutes of Quebec, Miss Elizabeth McCurdy
recently said:
"While no one would wish to convey the idea that
American magazines should not be bought and read yet
at the same time there is need for a little thoughful consideration among Canadian; us to the situation in regard
to the patronage given to strictly Canadian literature in
magazine form.
"It is estimated that twenty-five millions of magazines
are sold annually in Canada at a. face value of about
three millions, seven hundred thousand dollars. Of thtse
eleven millions enter the country through the mails on
an annual subscription basis, and the remainder are sold
on news stands. Every yoar about twelve millions of
Canadian magazines nre sold in Canada, with a face
value of about one million, three hundred thousand dollnrs. In other words for every ten Canadian magazines
bought by Canadian .there are twenty-one American
magazines bought by Canadians. Tor every dollar we
spend on tho Canadian mado literary product, we spend
two dollars and eighty-five cents on the imported article.
'•In addition to these, Canada imports one million
American agricultural pupors, and one nnd a quartrr
millions of professional and trade journals.
"The business man. as he sits at his breakfast on Sunday morning nnd scans his Sunday American newspaper,
does not often reflect upon tbe almost uncountable millions of these newspapers which come into Canada every
week-end. Should he do so, he might see in it an unfairness towards Canadian institutions, to say nothing of
a possible trend in education away from the ideals of
Canadian citizenship which it should bo the purpose of
every citizen to foster."

i Union Bay Girl
Will Make Home As
Bride In Nanaimo
t'ppgard - Brown
A very pretty wedding took place at
the marise, Union Bay, when Laura
Kathleen, youngest daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Fred Brown, of the Post Office, became the bride of Victor Upp-
The bride, who looked charming in
a gown of orchid Canton crepe trim-
mad with pink georyette, was given in
. marriaye by her father. Her sister,
[Mrs. Edith Hicks, was matron of hon-
1 or. She wore a becoming gown of
apple green georgette, while little Mil-
I dred Hicks, in a dainty dress of apple
j green crepe de chine, was flower girl.
The groom was supported by Albert
Eckman. of Nanaimo. Rev. J. H. Hobbins cfUciated and only Immediate
relatives were present.
After partaking of refreshments at
I the home of the bride's parnts, the
[happy cauple left on the wedding trip
by motor. The good wishes of a host
of friends follow the young couple to
their new home in Nanaimo. Mrs. \
Uppgard was born in Union Bay and
is held in high esteem by many friends.
Eleven yoars ago when receiving
a call to Cumberland, Vancouver
Isle, we searched diligently through
every available map for such a place,
without avail; and yet we knew that
this was an incorporated eity, with
its mayor, city council, fire department, and so forth, A city sustained
i by a number of outlying mines, at
1 that time putting out about two
thousands tons of coal; and feeding
at its docks at Union Bay numerous
Pacific liners. Vet with a coal oi
excellent quality, this town was not
considered of enough importance to
be placed upon tho map.
Today when this industry has
dwindled down to loss than half tho
proportions of those days, we find
! in any recently compiled atlas the
name of Cumberland. What then
has caused this recognition? And
recognized she is, for has not once
Lord Byng. nnd twice the Viscount
Willingdon come here to visit?
Not only is this town identified
und cbaried, but talked and read of
in our leading papers; and deservedly so, for Cumlierland, besides her
coal, produces men of brawn and
During tho last federnl election,
tlie candidate for the Northern Riding was chosen from her midst, and
an excellent showing he made, considering tbe strength of thc upright,
battle-tried politicians whom he opposed.
Again for the lust Provincial election the chosen Conservative candidate for the Comox-Alberni riding
was a resident, and mot with n greater success.    He is now our Member.
And now for the rumoured election of tbe coming summer, yot another man is chosen from among
us to bear the standard for the Conservative party.
In each ease be it noted, the candidate's name has stood for honor
and integrity.
So much for politics. In the field
of humanity, or rather another field
of humanity, the keenest interest is
displayed by members of the St.
John's Ambulance Association; the
large membership and steady drilling testifying to this interest. The
teams hnve carried off many prizes
from various other Provincial teams.
Perhaps the members of this association, are particularly fortunate in
having as instructor a man who thoroughly knows his subject; if a house
lined, almost furnished with trophies
and medals, is an indication of his
knowledge.    A man who is one out
of only six men in Canada, to be
awarded the honor of being made
"A Serving Brother of the Order of
St. John of Jerusalem." Should this
instructor ever visit London, he
would have a better opportunity for
appreciating the honor thus conferred upon him by King, through
Viscount Willingdon in person.
Another field of fertile workers
is the Mine Rescue Association, producing men of bravery, prepared for
and skilled in deeds of heroism.
And we hnve yet in Cumberland
more proof of the type of men residing hero, in our Volunteer Fire Department; which is up to date, efficient, and exceedingly well handled—to the joy of fire-insurniico
Now though tbe General Manager
cf thc Collieres and the Sun are .instrumental in placing Cumberland
before the public eye, wo cannot
give thom credit for having placed j
the name officially on thc map. No:-
as the coal has been the same for
forty yea's, can this bc the import
nut factor. It therefore must be the
quality of hor men, not coal, which
has finally succeeded in lending to
Cumlierland this geographical recognition.

[to keep insects from reaching the
! baby during bis sleep.
Regular hours for sleep are nee-
! essary. The child should always be
j put to bed ut the same hour and left
| alone. If this is done, he will settle
! down to sleep as he is put to bed.
Questions concerning Health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association, 184, College St., Toronto, will he answered personally
by correspondence.
During the first days of life, tho
baby sleeps all the time, excepting
when he is being fed or bathed. The
time spent in sleep gradually decreases and, at six months, the baby
sleeps about sixteen hours. He sleeps
from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. without interruption, excepting for has feeding at
10 p.m. He sleeps for two hours
each morning and a little longer in
the afternoon. At one year, he is
sleeping for fourteen hours.
The afternoon rest should be continued until the child is five or six
years of age.
The normal baby sleeps well. He
must be properly fed and should
sleep in fresh air if he is to rest
quietly for long hours.
Restlessness and frequent wakings
usually indicate improper feeding, or
lack of fresh air, or bad training.
The biby should not be played with
before he is put to bed, nor should
he be rocked, patted or sung to sleep.
The baby should always have his
own bed; a lined clothes basket does
very well for this. The mattress
should be firm and even, and covered with a rubber sheet, then a quilted pad, and, over all, a cotton sheet.
This provides a comfortable bed
which can be kept clean. The amount of coverings required depends
upon the temperature.
The baby should sleep out
doors during the daytime when the
weather permits. A window should
always be open in the room whero
the baby sleeps because only in this
wny can he obtain the amount of
fresh air which he needs. His bed
can be placed so that he is not exposed to having a draught strike one
part of his body.

Big Drop in
)     Not so many years ago, it was gen-
| erally believed that whatever it waa
j that caused the communicable dis-
I eases was blown around in the air.
For this reason, when such diseases
occurred, a great deal of attention
was given to the asir of the rooms
which were occupied by persons suffering from communicable diseases.
Rooms were treated by burning sulphur,   by  evaporating   or   spraying
formaldehyde or other disinfectants.
The idea behind such procedures was
the need to sterilize the air.
We know now that malaria and
yellow fever are not air-borne diseases. They are caused by the bite
of certain types of mosquitoes which
have previously fed on persons suffering from these diseases.
We also know that the germ causing the common communicable diseases die very quickly outside the
human body. Their chance of temporary survival is fairly good if they
are deposited in milk or other foods
where they can remain moist. We
do not include tuberculosis or smallpox in this statement for reasons
the discussion of which is not permitted by the space nt our disposal.
We know that in the case of practically all the dsiseases, excluding
those spread by water, milk and
foods, the communicable diseases are
spread from person to person directly and not through inanimate objects. The germs of disease are carried by the droplets expelled by
coughing, sneezing, spitting and loud
talking. The spread of infection ia
accounted for by the taking in of
these droplets by a second person.
Communicable diseases cannot be
controlled by fumigation, by the
sterilization ofthe air and of inan>
imate things. If a communicable
disease occurs in a school room, the
proper method of control is to at'
tempt to find the individual responsible for the spread of the germs.
The cause must be found and removed. The causeis always a person, not some school desk or black-
hoard, It is a waste of time and
money to fumigate the room. It is
money and time well spent to have
the children examined in order to
find the source of the infection.
During the course of a communicable disease a,ll body discharges
should be carefully collected and disinfected, because these fresh dis
charges contain the germs in large
numbers and so are dangerous. The
patient is isolated to prevent others
from coming in contact with his body
It is the eare during the course of
the disease, by such concurrent disinfection, that is important. When
the patient recovers and the secretions of his body nre free of germs,
there is no danger either in him or
his surroundings, and there is certainly no value in fumigation.

About 75 per cent of the population of India and southern China
suffer from hookworm.

Government Takes
Steps to Encourage
The Use Of Coal
Victoria, May 10.—The most drastic step yet taken by the Government
of British Columbia to encourage
the use of coal, in place of imported American fuel oil, was announced
today by Hon. W. A. McKenzie, minister of mines. He said that in future, in deciding the amounts to be
granted to any public institutions in
the province including schools, or to
assist in the construction of building,
the government will "take into serious consideration as to whether or
not B.C. produced fuel is to be used
for heating purposes."
That this policy will be vigorously enforced, was indicated by the
further announcement that the government already had secured the use
of coal In buildings where oil was
Coal for Vancouver
Public Buildings.
Mr. McKenzie said his attention
had been dsirected only within the
past few days to instances where
public buildings, come supported by
provincial funds, were to be heated
by oil, while coal mining, a home industry,  the  means of livelihood  of
I thousands of British Columbia fam-
| ilies is steadily languishing. Repre-
j mentations from hia depaitment, in
! co-operation with outside efforts, bail
. resulted in a rceonsiderattion of
I most of the projects to whicb be
J referred in respect of heating equip-
i ment. One was that of thc Chi!
dren's Aid Society of Vancouver,
which is supported by provincial
funds and now is enraged in the
building of a new, and much needed
home. There also is the Juvenile
Detention Home of Vancouver. Th;s
is a responsibility of the City of Vancouver and ha.s nothing to do witn
the province. At the same tine it
has heen urged that the advisability
of providing for the use of eo.il be
carefully considered before a final
decision is reached.
Urge Coal for New
Home for Blind-
There also has been before the
minister the question of the plana
proposed for the equipping of the
new building being constructed on
Broadway, Vancouver, ft : the Canadian National Institut ■ foi- the
Blind ,at a cost in the neighborhood!
of SfiO.000. This structure is to be
used as the headquarters for vocational work for the blind in this;
Mr, McKenzie has pointed out lhat
substantial sums have been contributed from the public funds for the
support of the important public scrv-
Ice which this institute Is rendering'
He al-u has directed the attention of i
those responsible for the designing j
of the institute's new building to the!
fact that ibe province this year has
provided for a contribution of ?^5,-1
000 to assist i" i;: activities.
The suggestion has been made that
.i fuel oil burning plant is to be in-'
•-called in the .society's new building.
To this the minister has taken exception, and has suggested that the
question should be carefully reviewed with a view of determining wheth-I
er it would not be more in the public
interest to arrange for the using of;
coat. He also has indicated that1
the advantages an the burning of

that, in his opinion, there will be;

|Government Takes
Steps to Encourage:
The Use Of Coal i
(continued (rom Page Three)
In discussing the justification for
thc new policy, Mr. McKenzie said
there had been a decline of over
$1,000,000 in the value of the out-
put of the coal mines in 1929, a;i
compared to the value of production
in the previous year. The falling om"
in production appears to continue,
| his latest information being that the
1 output for the first quarter of IDS')
i is less than was that for a similar
t period in the past year.
j Imported 189,000,000
Gallom  Crude Oil
The province last year imported
some 180,000,000 gallons of crude
oil, displacing at a conservative estimate in the local market at least
1,000,000 tons of coal. The average producti n per man, per nnnum
employed in the Collieries of British
Columbia, below and above ground,
is 475 tons. The lessening of the
use of coal as a result of the use
of fuel oil means the employment of
2107 less men in the active coal
fields. On a very conservative basis
each man supports a family of three,
so that it might he fairly figured
thnt the result of the use of fuel
oil. instead of coal has reduced the
population of B.C. coal mining centres by (:i21 persons.
The annual report of the minister
of mines for 1928 indicates that in
that year there were 5334 men directly dependent on the coal mining
industry >f this province. In that
year the industry was the source of
livelihood and support of at least
10,000  p. rsons.
Mr. Mc Cenzie declared that in the
circumsta iocs he felt that everything
should be done to assist the collieries. He vished it understood, however, tha those in control of this
industry 1 ad a duty to perform, how-
lie was glad to say that they were
•bowing a disposition to co-operate
with the department. He wished it
clearly understood too that he had
no brief For any particular colliery,
nor was he advocating the use of
coal as a fuel as against any other
fuel prod iced in the province.

Perhaps the spring of the year
is the hardest time of all to plan
menus. There is such an insistent
call from the out-of-doors these
first warm days, that in spite of
the fact that the market abounds
with good things to eat it is a
boring and tedious tas'c to try
to transform them to menus. An
appetizing and easy recipe is this
one of a Spring Fruit Salad
Arrang a slice of fresh pineapple on crisp lettuce for each
serving. For six servings peal
two medium bananas, cut into
thin slices and cover with 1/3
cupful of lemon juice. Let stand
five minutes; drain, and arrange
around the pineapple slice. Stem
two cupfuls of strawberries and
arrange some in center of each
pineapple slice. Serving with a
mixture of half mayonnaise and
half whipped cream folded together.
