something be done in the matter of j
keeping a water pressure high onough j

purposes. Mr. Goward intimated to
the Council that thc matter had been
taken up with the engineering department and in the very near future
the engineer would visit Cumberland
and go over the whole system iu
company with the local engineer, Mr.
R. Shaw. In the report of the committees submitted to thc Council on *'

FRONT OF MATT BROWN'S GROCERY STORE BADLY
SMASHED
A terrible crash heard on Dunsmuir avenue on Thursday afternoon
had dozens of people rushing to find
out the cause. One glance was
enough to show tbat a truck had been
backed through Matt Brown's Grocery store window, No one appears
to know what really happene I, but
it Is surmised that the driver of the
truck, Chin Chong, a chinaman from
Sandwick, who bad bis ear parked
close to tbe store, lost his head when
he started up the car, putting it into

was all over in thc space of a minute

Gulf Service
To Be Improved
New Steamen to Take Care of Tour*
Ut Traffic;  Automobile Ratei
Lowered
According to Mr. N. R. Des Brisay,
general passenger agent for the
C.P.R., with offices in Vancouver,
the Company's service between Nanaimo and Vancouver will be better
and more complete than ever it has
been, this coining summer. Two of
the new C.P.R. steamers will make
a daily round trip running on altern
ate days and 9-10,000 will be spent in
improving the wharf to take car.?
of the increased traffic.
Mr. Des Brisay points out that
during the height of the tourist season, June 28th to September 3rd inclusive, one of their new steamers,
the "Princess Elizabeth" nnd "Princess Joan" will each day make one
round trip between Vancouver and
Nanaimo in addition to the service
provided by the "Princess Elaine"
and the Ss. "Charmer".
These new steamers have been
built for night service between Vancouver and Victoria at a cost of over
$1,000,000 each and splendid facilities for carrying automobiles have
been provided, which it is expected
will enable them to carry between
60 nnd 70 ears. We feel sure that
the addition of these steamers to the
Nanaimo service will have a further
effect, of stimulating tourist  traffic.
On January 1st, 1930 .rates for
transportation of automobiles were
reduced to the following basis. Up
to 115 inch wheclbase, $.1.60; llfi
and 125 inch wheelbnse, $4.50; ovr
125 inch whoolbaso, $6.50. A reduction of $1.00 will be allowed on the
two one way rates for thc round trip.
making tho round trip rates $f».00,
$8.00 and $10.00 respectively.
In order to provide facilities for
this increased service during the
coming summer, alterations are now
being mnde to the Nanaimo dock
which will entail nn expenditure in \
the vicinity of $-10,000.
invitation sent out by the Cumberland Pack, tbe Wolf Cubs of Courtonay assembled in force last Tuesday evening, and picking up the
trail finally reached the Parish Hall
at 7 p.m., with Mrs. F. V. Hall, tho
Akela, in command. Tbere they were
welcomed by the local Wolf Cubs,
who sitting on their haunches, let
forth their howl of greeting—"Akela
. . .Ah-Kay-La. . . . Weeeeellll Do
Our Best." And from then on they
did do their best to give their brother cubs from Courtenay a jolly good
time.
The Hall had been transformed
into a Camp Fire ground. A red hot
fire glowed in the centre of the circle, and somo small fir trees placed
here and there gave the scene a realistic touch. Around the Council Fire
Circle sat the Cubs. The leading
sixer, Willie High, was called upon
to rend out an address of welcome,
which was responded to by a Courtonay Cub. This was followed by
a talk from the Chief Scout, (by
means of a gramophone record) nnd
then several of the local cubs displayed their talent in singing songs
or reciting. After the sing song the
centre of the floor was cleared and
mnny exciting games took place.
Then followed the bun feed. Every
cub had come along with a good appetite, and tbe supplies committee
had a busy time filling up the empty
plates. The evening ended with responsive cheers, the repeating of the
Club promise, and the national anthem. Amongst the visitors were
Mrs. Heber Cooke, Mr. and Mrs.
Hornby. Assisting in the kitchen
were Mrs. Buttress, Mrs. High, Mrs.
Strachan, Mrs. Vaughan.
Port Alberni and Miss Margaret of

grand-children and one greal grandchild, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs.

and one brother reside in Eastern
Canada.
The funeral took place from his
old home on Monday last to Cumberland Cemetery, numerous friends attending to pay their last tribute of
respect. Rev. J. R. Hewitt of Cumberland United Church officii ted and
pall-bearers were Messrs. J. N. McLeod, J. W. McKenzie, Geo. fi. Leighton and D. R. MncDonald of Courtenay and Messrs. W. McLellan Sr.

singularly little "copy"—and that
little only in the last two sittings of
the House—and yet it was a week by
no means barren In accomplishments.
Even so resourceful newspapermen
as Bruce Hutchinson himself find it
diiricult to make news of the dry-as-

new rules of debate, and when Opposition joins Government in accepting ministerial logislatl in without
change of criticism, the businesslike
proceedings do nol lend thcmsclvef

the advent of evening sittings, Invariably indicative of a session's near-
ing end.

lands, the latter each year accumulating attention and sub tantinl value. The papers in the l large tran
suctions have been sign, d, sealed and
returned to Ottawa, and both houses
this year will pass necessary ratifications, thus finally accept bly answering Liberal content ion- before sev*
eral past elections that only a provincial government of thc same faith as
Ottawa's could hope to successfully
conclude the bargain long desired by
British Columbia. The terms of the
now concluded agreement shortly are
1. Provision for the Immediate
transfer of the Railway Belt
and Peace River Block lands
to the Province.
2. Federal parks in the Railway
Belt to remain under federal
jurisdiction.
3. Adequate hinds in the Railway Belt to he reserved for

4. Tho Dominion pay thc province ?100,000 a year in perpetuity.
I Hon. Dr. Tolmie, tn announcing
the conclusion of negotiations to the'
House, said:
"After   many   yenrs'   activity   by j

'a view to securing tho return of the'

matter of the return of the Railway
Lands. Mr. Justice Martin of Saskatchewan was appointed Commissioner,     This   learned   judge,   after
\ careful investigation, found thn:
while the Province had no legal right
to claim the return of these lands,
there existed n very strong moral
right. After the finding of Mr. Justice Martin, negotiations were again
entered into with a view to having
the lands returned, nnd on this government taking office late in 1928,

pressed by tbe chairman to name a

Brown on rising said he did not wont
any remuneration for the work he

work and be thanked them very much
for the many expressions of goodwill for his work as secretary.

during his term of office and reviewed very briefly the progress made by

INVESTIGATOR SAYS
LUG CHANGE WILL
HAVE TO TAKE PLACE
Victoria, B.C., Feb, 27.—Every-
thing the then Conservative Opposition said in the Legislature in
criticism of tbe late Liberal government's University Endowment Lands
scheme is far more than justified by
the special inve tigator, A. N. Day-
kin, who '.vent thoroughly into the
situation at Point Grey and eonclud-
..i that it was unnecessary to lay
down a definite policy otherwise than
with regard to Units 1 and 2. Tlio
report indicates that tbe situation is
very serious ami that Uie university
snjoys very small chance in deriving
iny maintaining income through th-?
policy inaugurated by the late government.
"There will have to be a great
change somewhere", Mr. Daykin say-

School Sports May
28th at Courtenay
i The annual school sports of Northern Vancouver Island will bc hold in
Courtenay this year on May 28, if permission is secured from the school
boards concerned. This was decided
at a meeting of the teachers in the
Courtenay school on Saturday. A representative of the Port Alberni staff
j was present and asked permission to
send a team of competitors and it is
hoped that Powell River wiil be induced to do likewise so that thc sporty
will be more representative than ever
before, This year the sports of the
high and public schools have bcen separated so that time will permit of a
larger number of events .and the
classes of entries have been increased
to three, namely: Under 11 years of
jage, under 13 years and seniors whicli
. will include any pupil iu a public

Association, 184, College St., Toronto, will be answered personally

TIRED OUT?
We used to hear that the blood gut
; thick or thin in thc spring, and we
! were told that the tired-out feeling
which is not uncommon at that season was due to the change in the
' blood.
j Because of this belief, it was customary every spring to indulge in
an orgy of so-called spring tonics,
with the idea of purifying the blood.
: Sulphur-and-molasso's was the remedy of choice in the time of our
grand-parents for the run-down feel-
ling-
j The condition does occur, but the
treason is not due to any change in
the blood. Why docs it occur? If
we consider for a moment the waj
■many people live during the wintei
months, we will not be surprised thai
there is a physical iet-down toward
■spring, How many of your friend
secure a reasonable amount of ex
ercise and fresh air in winter? 1)(
they regulate their eating to thei;
lessened activities?
For the children, winter is thi
time for parties nnd late hours, for
the strain of school anil examination,
Instead of spending most of the da;
in play out of doors, they are in
doors; instead of being active, the:
sit  at  desks,
The reason for the tired-out sprin
feeling is the manner of life wc lead
during the winter months. Those
who do take reasonable care to hi v
fresh air nnd exercise, who consider their diet, who go to bed ia
time to have sufficient sleep, and who
are not always on the rush at me il
and to school or work—these in i
viduals do not suffer. They are a
fit during the wintei months as at
any other time. They do not exper
ience any special fatigue with thi
coming of spring.
The  blood  is as  clean  and   pu ■■
in the spring as it li   at  any i'l!'"
time of the year.    Tl e comp i itii
of the blood as to thi knesa or thin
ness does not vary. The purtiy of
;the blood is controlled by certaii
organs of the body. Thc blood i;
! altered in certain diseases, but it is
! not altered by the incidence of a
| particular season of the year.
From this, it can be seen how fu-
'tile it is to drug ourselves with the
idea of correcting a blood condition
which does not exist, or of toning up
the body, when what is needed is to
alter the mode of life sufficiently to
allow the body to come back to normal.
Better to prevent, but if this has
not been done, remember that Nature's year-round tonic is rest, fresh
air, exercise, and proper food in the
right amounts. It has been truly
said that Health is to be found in a
way of life, not in a bottle of medi
cine.

POOLEY TO PROBE
UQUOU BUYING
BUSINESS TO BOTTOM
Victoria, B.C., Feb. 27.—Although
thc Attorney General has taken hie
■uc from the former Attorney Gcn-
oral Mr. A. M. Manson in do-
lining to disclose details of liquol
'■■.y.-.M administration investigations,
lie has nevertheless intimated in a
manner that does not wholly commend itself to tho layol Opposition
that he is by no means averse to go-
ing into details of liquor purchase
hat seemingly have a distinct polil
'■a! aroma.
il is even possible that echoes of
lie Gauthier and Carlow charges
may yet reverberate in the halls of
wisdom.
As an advance intimation. Hon.
Mr. Pooley has stated that he proposes to ascertain why it was, under
he iate government, that certain Old
Country distillers were suddenly Impelled to change their British Co-
i agents, in fear of alternatively losing their British Columbia business.
This intimation was made in conse-
ue e of the appearance on the Or-
lers of a resolution in the name of
i  Ian  Mackenzie  for corrcii*
mdence between the law minister
of the Crown and British Distillers.
rhi mover did not :-penk to his reso-
lut lon; Hon. Mr. Pooley Intimattd
hi I ho had no objection to its allowance.
One judged by his subsequent remarks that disclosure will be prejudicial to the former rather than the
present government, if he la rightly
advised.
As an example he cited a letter to
Mr. II. C. Janion from the Portal
Dingwell Co. cancelling the agency
thai had been held by the Janion
family for upwards of sixty years.
which agency was transferred to
Glen C. Hyatt, ns representative of
i Vancouver syndicate to interview
distillers and others concerned.
In 1924, Mr. Pooley asserts, hardware men, second hand dealers and
men never theretofore associated
with tho liquor interests but prominent in the ranks of Liberalism suddenly blossomed out full-fledged ns
liquor agents, old-established houses
as suddenly losing thoir built up con-
ns, Correspondence with Mr,
Janion, illustratively showed that the
n •■' ncy had to change, or no orders
would be forthcoming from the B.C.
Liquor Board.
"I propose to go to the bottom of
this liquor buying business", Mr.
Pooley declared to the House. "The
people of British Columbia want the
truth of it, and they also want to
know just why they should be paying too much for their liquors in
quite a number of cases."

BUDGET MAY
ISE INTRODUCED
NEXT WEEK
Victoria, B.C., Feb. 27.—Progress
with business rather than any notable debates or surprising disclosures]
in government affairs has marked
the fifth week of the session, as to j
the duration of which the prophets
have begun to speculate. The Bud-;
get now is "expected" this week-end,
but this expectation is more than
likely to be disappointed, since it \.*-
whispered that Mr. Shelly's deliver-
ance still is under cabinet consideration.
No notice of night sittings yet appears on the Orders, and those am-.
ong tlie members who fondly look j
for reunion with their families and j
homes a fortnight hence may be
classed as splendid optimists.
Committee work of all sorts has
beeu extremely active morning, afternoons and even evenings this
week, the Fisheries Committee promising to complete its strenuous consideration of the new regulations
before the week-end, reporting to
the House.
The conclusion gains ground that
acquirement of the Peace River
Block will greatly assist provincial
negotiation with the transcontinental railway interests for extension of
the Pacific Great Eastern to that
great area sooner than could other-
wise be arranged. So soon as the
report of the joint survey of re-
sources in the land grant territory is
considered, the government expects!
alternative or joint offers for the,
Pacific Great Eastern, with extension
guarantees.
These offers it is hinted will con-|
tain conditions looking to acquire-
ment of a portion of the Pence River j
block as supplementary inducement
for early rail extension thither.
