Brilliant Success
Of Empire Day
Large   Crowds,,   Ideal   Weather   and
Exciting   Track  Event.;
Amateur Dancing
Cumberland was a busy place on
Monday, the ideal weather bringing
out from every corner of the district,
families in large numbers to witness
the Empire Day celebration, sports
and dancing. All committees had
worked hard and faithfully in an effort to make this year's celebration
one long to be remembered. Collections were not so large as last year
with the result that economy had to
be practised .The finance committee,
however, will have a balance in hand
after all expenses have been paid,
which, considering thc number of
events stnged is a matter of congratulations. The dancing took up a lot of
time but was well worth it. Lieut.-
Col. C. W. Villiers donated ten medals for the dancing and competition
was most keen. Mr. W. McLellan, Sr.,
donated the sum of $5.00 for the
purpose of purchasing prizes for the
boy and girl of the Cumberland
schools making the most points during
the day.
The celebration started about one
hour after the advertised time, everybody waiting for the Queen to appear.
Last year, the pipe band held up the
start of the parade and this year the
Queen. Surely if it is intended to
start the ball rolling at _ a.m., one
would expect the principals to be the
one's on time. It is not fair on the
large number of spectators to keep
them cooling their heels for a solid
hour. However, when the Queen did
arrive, the grumblings and mumblings
ceased. Her float was very nicely
decorated, masses of flowers and red
white and blue bunting being lavishly displayed. The Queen, Miss Alice
Brown looked very charming in her
robes and carrying a bouquet of summer flowers. Her maids of honor,
Miss Rosie Marocchi and Miss Ines
Bonora, one wearing a pale green
frock and the other, pale mauve, with
mohair picture hats and carrying
flowers, looked very pretty. The
pages Alan Nunns and Robin Eadie
were both dressed alike in purple
velvet and white satin.
As the parade moved oft* led by
the Cumberland band it was noticed
that not nearly so many floats had
entered this year and there was not
a single entry for the decorated automobile prize..More interest, however,
was taken by the school children in
the parade and many more decorated
groups were in evidence than was the
case last year.
On reaching the Recreation ground
the crowning ceremony was performed by ex-queen Magnone and afterwards, Mayor Maxwell, on behalf of
the city greeted Queen Alice and presented her with a ring as a momento
of the occasion. Maypole dancing,
singing by the school choir and physical exercises by W. Jackson's pupils
followed the crowning ceremony and
preceded the sports. The singing of
the children of the school choir showed the rosult of careful training and
the physical exercises by W. Jackson's
pupils was a well worth while effort.
It is a pity more do not take up these
exercises. The sports were keenly
contested and many close finishes
were recorded. Results were as follows:
Best decorated float, Messrs. Robinson and Baird; best advertising float,
Messrs. Keeler and Parnham; best
comic group, J. Turney, W. Tobacco,
and W. Conn; best decorated bicycle,

Tne mile race saw the finish of the
track events when a halt was called
for supper, the final of the baseball
competition starting about 6 o'clock,
between Happy Valley and Cumberland Athletics. The game was a bang
up affair and was watched by a large
crowd, with the Athletics coming from
behind to win an exciting game by
[our runs to three.
The celebration this year was a huge
success, the weather man was on his
best behaviour and the whole days'
proceedings were run off without a
single hitch. All committees worked
hard and left nothing undone to make
It as pleasant as possible for the large
number attending. During the day,
the Cumberland band, under Bandmaster W. Jackson, played many popular selections. Piper Stewart, of Cour.
tenay, played for the dancing sontests.
The baseball Anal for the 24th of
May committees prize produced a
real thrilling climax when the Athletics und Happy Valley tangled. The
funs, and there were hundreds of
them, got a real thrill. The Valley
boys got the lead early on, but the
Athletics gradually drew level and at
the finish managed to nose out the
Volleyites by the odd run, the final
score being four runs to three. So
evenly were the teams matched that
the first league meeting of these
teams will surely bring out a record
number of spectators. Baseball like
Inst Monday's would surely mean success for the Comox District Twilight
League this season.
Another very close game resulted
on Thursday night on the occasion of
the meeting of the Athletics and the
Eagles, the latter winning by 8 runs
to ft. It was some game and had the
fans on edge all the way through.
The games in the Twilight League are
beginning to be keenly contested and
the struggle for the top position and
the possession of the silverware is
going to be an interesting one.
Busy Bees Defeat
Union Bay Team
Called at the end of the sixth Innings on acocunt of darkness, the flrst
game to be played in this season's
Twilight Baseball League on the local
diamond was between Union Bay and
the Courtenay Busy Bees, and resulted
in an easy wil for the home team with
a score of 10 to 1. It was a good game
for the flrst three innings, at the end
of which the score was 1 to 0 ln favor
of the visitors, but in the fourth frame
Demonte's Demons started a slugtest,
and while holding the boys from the
Bay from scoring any more runs, put
across two In the fourth and four In
each of the fifth and sixth. BUI Marshall on the mound for Union Bay
started away well and allowed no hits
for the first three innings but he
started to weaken in the fourth and
at the end of the fifth was withdrawn
in favor of Auchinvole who did no better. Quinn did the twirling for the
Busy Bees and allowed but two hits,
retiring 13 by the strike-out route in
the six Innings.
Thc pavilion at the "Y" ground being erected hy tlie members of the
cricket club Is almost completed and
will bc a big improvement over the
old one which was practically destroyed by the youth of Cumberland. Following the completion an effort is to
be made to Improve the playing pitch.
Powell River
And Eagles Tie
Cumberland, May 24.—A large crowd
witnessed a very interesting; soccer
game today between the Powell River
St. Andrews and the Cumberland
Eagles, the game being staged as a
part of the Empire Day celebration.
The paper makers came over in force,
bringing with them a fine pipe band,
the pipers playing before the opening
of the game, at half time and again at
full time.
The game ended in a draw of one
goal each after a most even encounter,
which, however, was somewhat spoiled
by the high wind, which made ball
control very difficult. The Eagles scored after twenty minutes had gone by
in the first half, a lead that was maintained until the breather.
On crossing over it was felt that the
Eagles would have a big advantage
with the wind in their favor but the
paper makers, like the Eagles gave of
their best playing against the wind,
scoring after twelve minutes had gone
of the second half. The game.was
very clean from start to finish, fouls
being very few. Both defences played
splendidly, giving a great exhibition in
spite of the strong wind. J. L. Brown
refereed to tlie satisfaction of all.
The football team came over accompanied by the Powell River Pipe
band, about eight pipers and three
drummers, who certainly delighted
the large crowd present with several
well known and popular selections.
They played on their way to the
ground, at half time and again at full
time. The only thing needed to bring
the band to a state of perfection is
the kiltie-dress, which we are given
to understand they do not possess. It
had heen hoped that the band would
stay over for Monday's celebration
and a collection was taken up on the
field for the purpose of assisting the
band to pay their expenses for the
stop-over; at least that was the impression conveyed to the crowd present. The band went back; now everybody Is asking what became of the
money? Writing under date of May
25th the pipe major of the bund, said
it was news to him that the band was
asked to stay over for the celebration
and the first intimation he received
was when the announcement wus
made before the grandstand. Had thc
band been notified two or three days
previously arrangements could have
been made for a stop-over. The pipe
major is evidently very much concerned over the matter of the collection on the field and asks how much
was collected. We are asking, "who
got the money?" From present indications it is a lead pipe cinch the
pipers did not, unless it hns been
turned over since May 26th.
Good Display
'  Of Boxing At
The Band Hall
Acrobatics,    Boxing    and    Wrestling
Provide Varied Program
Cumberland, May 34th.—One of the
best boxing and wrestling bouts ever
held in Cumberland took place on Saturday night ln the Band Hall, before
a fair number of spectators. The exhibition was put on by the pupils of
Instructors H. and W. Jackson of the
Cumberland Literary and Athletic Association. The program opened with
an exhibition of club swinging by W.
Jackson, S. Hunt, J. Taylor and T.
Robertson, which was followed by exercises over .the caultlng horse, those
taking part including S. Hunt, T. Adamson, J. Coombs, W. Shearer, J. Robertson, T. Robertson, J. Carrigan, A.
Bates, J. Hofleinz, H. McNeill and H.
Westfield. These boys also gave exhibitions in tumbling and pyramid building and received a big hand for their
These exercises were followed by a
really good card of boxing bouts, all
being three two-minute rounds, with
Roy Cliffe, the well-known local boxer,
acting as refei-ee. The flrst bout was
between two very young boys at chick
weights. The way ttye youngsters went
after one another brought down the
house and was declared a draw by the
Bout No. 2 brought together W.
Shearer and J. Hofleinz in a three two-
minute round bout. Shearer won the
decision after a really good display,
Cliffe's decision being received well by
the crown.
Bout No. 3 brought Clive Lewis and
Shorty Carrigan together, when after
a fast three rounds, Lewis was declared the winner. In the next bout
two welt matched local boys, Jack
Watson and Buddy Coombs, put up a
display that had the crowd on edge,
both fighters coming near to collapsing at the close.   Coombs won.
Boua No. 5 brought together Tommy
Adamson and Sidney Hunt and was a
slashing bout from start to finish, both
boxers taking a lot qf punishment. The
decision, in favor of Adamson, was a
close one, many think ing that a draw
should have been handed out.
The next bout saw Clive Lewis and
Harry Westfield in action, the latter
substituting for W Cozier, who was
suffering from a foot injury. West-
field did very well and stood up well
to his more experienced opponent, but
failed to ge the call from referee Cliffe.
A blindfold boxing bout between R.
Marshall and O'Connor brought down
the house, the boxers causing lots of
amusement while attempting to hit
one another. This was followed by a
scries of wrestling matches, the flrst
pair to take the mat being T. Mossey
and T. Conrod. This was a best two
out of three falls, the flrst going to
Conrod, but Mossey came back strong
in the next two rounds and pinned his
opponent to take the decision. Con-
rod got his flrst fall through a head-
lock, Mossey relying og the arm lock
to gain both his falls.
The next bout saw S. Williams and
P. Perrezlni together, the former getting two straight falls. Perrezlni conceded the flrst fall to a toe hold and a
combined headlock and sclssorshold
won for Williams the second fall."
The main event was between Harry
Jackson and Skipper Murray, the latter gaining the first fall and Jackson
the last two. Murray did very well,
extending Jackson to the limit.
Seven cups donated .by Col. Villiers
were presented to the winners by the
Colonel following the wrestling.
Mr. and Mrs. R. Laird nml family
were visitors to Nanaimo over the
Opening Date
Set For Bowling
Cumberland, May 24.—A meeting of
the Cumberland Literary and Athletic
Association lawn bowling club held today decided that the opening date bc
Saturday, May 30th. Lieut.-Col. C. W.
Villiers will be asked, to attend the
opening seremony and invitations will
also be sent to various other prominent
officials of the Canadian Collieries. Mr.
Con. Reifel, of Nanaimo, himself a
prominent bowler and the donor of a
cup to the Cumberland club, will also
be invited.
The club is expecting a strong membership this year and expects to take
teams to Powell River, Victoria and
Nanaimo during the summer. The
meeting also went on record as affiliating with the British Columbia Lawn
Bowling Association.
It was also decided to allow ladles,
if a ladies' club Is formed, to choose
the date of their own official opening..
Just before going to press we were
informed thut tho time of the opening had been set for 2 p.m. as it was
not anticipated that the mines would
be working. At first the time had been
set for 4 o'clock but many thought
that this time was unsuitable; muny
prominent bowlers ,ure expected to bc
present and » real good opener is
looked for. The following ore the officers of the club: Honorary president,
Liout.-Col. C. W. Villiers; hon. vice-
president, T, Graham; president, It,
T. Brown; treasurer, W. Henderson;

Below wc publish a full list of the
donations received for the 24th of
May Ceiehration, as turned in by the
chairman of the finance committee,
Mr. Walter Hudson, Jr. That the collections this year were excellent goes
without saying. Not quite so large an
amount was contributed as was the
case last year, but considering the
amount of unemployment throughout
the land, the total of. Jl 177.00 was
really good.

The Cumberland Islander
THK present stagnation in business which
affects the whole civilized world with its at-
tendant unemployment situation, is only one
of those periods constantly recurring periods of
enforced idleness which the wealth producers of
the world suffer as a consequence of the national
violation of the laws which govern the production
and distribution of wealth.
Although civilized nations vary much in their
systems of government, taxation and financial systems, they all violate the fundamental law, that
the earth and ils treasures were,intended by God
for the equal use of all men, and the making of
them private property is the fruitful source of
unemployment, poverty and crime.
About twenty-live years ago, the writer was
privileged to hear Raymond Robbins give an account ol' an experience he had in the Yukon in the
late (Ill's, ll appears lhat all the gold diggings had
either become washed out or had got into the
hands of tin* Hydraulic Mining Companies and
some 8,000 miners, mostly newcomers mislead by
information thai there was still plenty of unappropriated gold-bearing land to be had, were idb
The competition fnr an opportunity to work forced
wages which had been $10.00 a day down to $3.50
a day. although the cost of living was actually
'Ibe situation was very serious and the outlook
gloomy enough and then someone discovered that
cm Ihe ocean shore between high and low water
mark Tree gold could be found. The miners agreed
among themselves lo allow each a strip of shore
15 feet wide and in a short time the 3,000 men, no
longer idle were making from $10.00 to $15.00 a
day. Whal happened lo wages?
The miners working in the Hydraulic mines
threw down Iheir picks and refused to work for
$3.50 a day. Th v were told that wages were now
$10.00 a day. and lhey resumed work. Waiters in
lite restaurants threw up their jobs, but went
back to work at $450.00 a month. Clerks in the
stores had Iheir wages increased to $500.00 a
month and withoul anyone changing his occupation, wages sealed up from $10.00 a day as that
was the amount which a man could make working
for himself.
Suppose instead of the gold being found on Government land, which could not bc monopolized, it
bad been found on privately owned land, what
would have happened? A few hundred miners
would have got jobs al $3.50 a day—another millionaire or two would have been created and most
of the 3.000 men would still be unemployed. When
men can i.mploy themselves, they do not work for
starvattion wages and there is no labour question.
Another incident also got by the writer firsthand through one of the chief actors gives additional light on Ihis most fundamental question.
Shortly afler tit' Roer War.an unemployment
situation arose in South Africa, affecting many of
the ex-service men, and in order to relieve the situation the Adminslrator of the district, who happened to have extraordinary powers, allowed these
unemployed men to go upon the unoccupied
crown lands, with such satisfactory results that
unemployment ceased. Hut this result was by no
means as satisfactory to the employers of labour
for thre was no unemployed to form a safety
valve against wages rising. In fact, men became so
scarce that a deputation of manufacturers waited
on the Administrator and begged him to stop
allowing the Crown lands to be used, protesting
that since he had done so, it was impossible to hire
men under a pound a day.
The Administrator, Colonel, now Rt. Hon. Josiah
W'edgewood, who tells the story, happened to be
a Henry George man, and refused to do so. So the
scheme of the employers to create an unemployment situation so that wages could be kept low
for their benefit was spoiled and they had to go
inlo the open market and pay good wages or do
without workers.
Can anything be clearer; in the lirst illustration
thc opening up of natural opportunity to the idle
miners gave employment and wages rose, ln the
s.cond case, a deliberate attempt was made to
create an unemployment situation by depriving
men of their access to the land.
Hera, then, is the cause and cure. Give every
man a chance to employ himself by opening up the
unused natural opportunities to him, by making
all who hold vacant land of any kind pay the full
rental value to the state. Thus opportunities for
labour will be opened on all hands and they would
include farms, market gardens, city lots, sites for
factories, homes and warehouses, as wall as mines,
and, in fact ,they would duplicate all forms of
opportunity now in use and unemployment would
cease at once and cease permanently.
NEWS trom Ottawa Indicates thnt the Government is
taking steps looking to the establishment ot unemployment insurance. Any program of the Government seems likely to meet with lhe support of the Opposition, which, to judge from its attitude on tills question,
may be prepared to go further than the present administration.
Without nny desire to miniini/.e the evils of unemployment, The Financial Times suggests that any such program in a young and developing country like Canada
must have very careful consideration. This country at
its present singe of development should bo able to offer
a good living und an opportunity to provide a surplus for
sild age for all those who are prepared to lend their of-
forts to the tusk of developing our still great natural
resources. And because of the part Canada played in the
wur we have already assumed a very heavy public burden
in addition to our debt fur capital invested in railroads,
industries and other development undertakings on which
n in-icy annual interest bill bas to lie met.
The effect on the morale of workers of unemployment
Insurance which assumes the proportions of a dole as .it
is known In Kngland, should bu approached with great
caution. If Mugiand has mode a mistake—and that is a
growing opinion—It is a mistake whicli should not be repeated in tbls country ut this stage of development without the capital resources whicli England is able to call
upon—and is calling upon heavily now.
. The extremes to which the dole can be employed in
England in replacing effort by Idelness Is indicated by a
typical case described as follows!—"A young nl»n, 27
years of age. bas paid only one contribution to the dole
fund. He hus not only lived on the dole, but he hai
married and wilh three children, he obtains *15 shillings
a week. If employed his wage would probably not exceed
25 shillings. Hy Ingenuity lie bus succeeded In showing
that each job offered to him is*unsatisfactory or unsuitable to his taste. He has thus become a creature of the
dole.' '
Tbe Government has Intimated that its unemployment
insurance policy will lie bused on a thorough survoy aided
by data lo lie secured during the taking of the census
this year. There arc such special problems to lie considered ns agricultural labor, and climate,, ns it results in
seasonal employment, The need for very careful study is
apparent. —Financial Times.
Reports covering the lower mainland, Vancouver and Gulf Islands, indicate thut strawberries are coming

Every cell of the body requires
food and has waste products which it
must pet rid of. The blood serves this
function for it is the blood stream
which carries oxygen from the luntfs
and food fyom the digestive tract to
every nook and corner of the body.
It is into the blood stream that thc
body cells discharge their wasto products, which are then carried by the
blood to the diminutive organs
through which they leave the body.
There are in the body certain important glands which produce secretions and which control, in large measure, many important functions of
the body. It is in the blood stream
that these internal secretions are circulated.
It is obvious that the blood which
forms about one-twentieth of the
body weight, is a most important part
of the body.
The blood .itself is subject to certain diseases, such ns the anaemias,
which alter its composition and interfere with the carry ing-tfut of its
normal functions associated with the
nutrition of the body and removal of
In the minds of many people, there
is the idea that when they feel miserable or run-down, particularly if
this occurs in the spring of the year,
that it is due to their blood's being
what they call poor, or bad, or thin.
There is no foundation for this belief. The compostiion of the blood
does not change unless there is actual
disease of the blood itself, and it is
not to such cases that we refer.
P imples, boils or other skin conditions are not due to poor blood nor
are they the result of nature's trying
to rid the blood of .impurities. In
many of these cases, there is a story
of neglect of all those habits of life
which must receive attention if the
body is to he kept in a state of health.
It is much easier to blame the condition on poor blood than on lack of
exercise, fresh air, cleanliness of the
body, or overeating. It is because so
many people neglect these important
matters during the winter that we
hear more complaints of poor blood
in the spring than at other seasons
of the year.
It is not through medicines that the
body is kept healthy; it is through a
proper manner of living .Exercise in
the open air daily, sleeping in a room
with the window open, keeping the
body clean by regular bathing, moderate use of food in a balanced diet,
securing regular elimination by the
formation of regular habits—these
are the habits of life which make for
health, physical fitness and freedom
from the .ill effects which follow neglect of the body.
