July 1, 1922  Gunning Accident at Botwood  Young Man Accidentally Shot. A message to the Justice Department received yesterday from Mr. J. W. AIKEN, J. P., Botwood, reported the accidental shooting of a young man named Sidney PEARCE. Magistrate FITZGERALD, who held an investigation into the accident, also sent a message to the same effect, which reads as follows: “Sidney PEARCE, 18 years old, of Flurrie’s Bight, New Bay Head, accidentally shot himself at noon Wednesday, whilst on the way to Botwood. He was reaching for his gun to shoot a seal when it went off and the charge entered his chest. The unfortunate young man was crossing North Arm in a boat, and was accompanied by a younger brother and a girl named BUDGELL.” - Telegram, June 15th. 
July 1, 1922  Bell Island  41,00 Men Employed in Bell Island Mines. Mr. H. B. GILLIS, of the D. I. & S. Co., arrived from Sydney by the Sable I. this week. Mr. GIBBS has only recently been at the Company’s works at Port au Port and it is understood made arrangements for the re-opening of the Limestone Quarries, and on Tuesday over two hundred men went to work there and will be employed throughout the summer, thereby relieving the unemployment situation on this part of the coast. At Bell Island there is considerable activity of late and a large quantity of ore is being shipped each week seeing large shipments going forward. At present over 1,400 [Note that this figure is different in the headline] men are employed on the Island, and from the good news from Sydney as contained in the Sydney Post of recent date, there is every likelihood that next month operations at the steel works will be in full swing. – Trade Review.

July 1, 1922  Making Good  We clip the following extracts from a letter written to the St. John’s Evening Advocate from Mount Allison University, Sackville, N. B., under date, May 24th, 1922: “Reginald C. WHITE, of Twillingate, received his Theological Certificate at the Theological Convocation in April. He also received the Degree of Bachelor of Arts at the University Convocation. During his five years at Mt. Allison ‘Reg’ has ‘made good.’ Not only has he maintained a high standard in his studies, but he has been a leader in college work. He was president of the Theological Society in his sophomore year, and in his senior year he had the honour to be the editor of the College paper, ‘The Argosy.’ Next year he intends specializing in religious education at Boston University. Those of us who know ‘Reg’ feel sure that he will not only do credit to his Alma Mater, but also to the land of his birth.” “Jack E. MANUEL, of Botwood, after two years at Mt. Allison, received his certificate in Applied Science. ‘Jack’ also ‘did his bit’ during the war, and we prophesy for him a very successful future in his chosen work.” “Russell Bascow Memorial Prize value $20 00, highest standing in Religious Education, was awarded to Reginald C. WHITE, Twillingate. 
July 1, 1922  Small Returns  Two dollars a barrel is a low price for the Government to be giving for potatoes. It was only a short while ago that buyers here for the Government offered the above figure for local potatoes, to be sold again where seed was asked for around the district. In these days of hard luck it seems a very unreasonable price when in fact $3.00 can be obtained from other sources by the producers. White potatoes being inferior to the reds, $2.50 at least should have been given, as people cannot sacrifice even if a little profit must be gained by the Agriculture Department, when selling again to those who demand seed. If the Government was as economical in all undertakings as it is buying potatoes, not many deficits would have shown themselves as it does to day. Perhaps the first step to economy and readjustment which may be accomplished in time to capture the electorate on the next polling day. 
July 1, 1922  Death  After a lengthy illness of tuberculosis, Stanley NEWMAN of this town passed away at St. Luke’s Hospital, New York a short time ago. Many knew him as an optimistic and cheerful lad with a strong nerve, although at times he endured intense suffering. Several times he had treatment at St. Anthony and once in St. John’s he spent some time in the Sanatorium. His treatment at New York was of the best that could be availed, but the vital parts became affected so that cure was impossible, yet we believe his life was prolonged by his treatment in hospital. He was the third son of Mr and Mrs. Alfred NEWMAN who reside here. He also leaves two sisters, Annie working at Earle Sons & Co. and Bessie in U.S.A., a brother Edward now settled at Victoria, B. C. The funeral took place on Saturday at the Church of England, Mr. HARNETT administering the burial ceremony. The Masonic and S. U. F. brethren attended the funeral, Stanley was a member of these societies. To the bereaved parents and brother and sisters and all relatives the Sun tenders sympathy.

July 15, 1922  Starvation Doles  Flour Molasses and Tea: We learn, through information received from letters and personal communications, that in Harbor Grace District a large number of families of Spaniard’s Bay, Island Cove, and Tilton are at present under the necessity of receiving the dole of Flour, Molasses and Tea given by the Relieving Officer under certain circumstances. The bread winners of their families always worked on Bell Isle and elsewhere, but at present cannot secure employment in any shape or form, hence they are obliged to accept the starvation dole handed out by the Relieving Officer on the instructions of the Government. The proportion of the three items served out on application is based on the size of the family, but is not sufficient to keep body and soul together. It is a sad commentary on present conditions when men who have been contributing to the revenue for years, have to subsist on a pauperised bill of fare, when Ministers of the Crown can make excursions abroad, living on the best of viands, and enjoying all the comforts and luxuries of first class steamboats and hotels. The French Revolution was brought about by the studied insolence of the aristocracy toward the proletaria. Is it possible that an aristocracy of politicians in government circles is being born in Newfoundland? Judging by current happenings it looks like it. - Telegram July 11th. 
July 15, 1922  Notes from Port Albert  Dear Editor; Please allow me space in your valuable paper for a few words from this place. On June 22nd a reception was given by the Ladies of this place to Miss PENNY and her pupils, at the ending of the School term in appreciation of her work. The children provided themselves with flags and paraded around the Harbour, and then back to the School where a good tea was awaiting them. After filling themselves of the nice things, they were all taken in Mr. ELLIOTT’s motorboat and given a tour around the Harbour. After, they finished up with games on the field, interesting to young people. A sum of money was collected by Mrs. ELLIOTT and given Miss PENNY as a token of love from them. With many good wishes from all for a pleasant “Holiday” during her vacation, all retired home. Thanking you for space I remain. Mrs. Herbert ELLIOTT. 
July 15, 1922  Death  There passed away of meningitis at the Arm on July 5th, Peter, beloved son of Richard and Agnes PRIMMER, at the early age of 27 years. He leaves to mourn him a father, mother, three sisters and one brother. Peter was loved by all that came in contact with him because of his kind and loveable disposition. He was a member of the Samway's Bible Class of the Methodist Sunday School and that body turned out to do him honour on Saturday last, when all that was mortal of him was laid to rest in the family plot in the Arm Cemetery. The funeral service was conducted by the Rev. Mr. ATKINSON in the South Side Methodist Church. Leaves have their time to fall, And flowers to wither at the North wind’s breath, And stars to set, but all, Thou hast all seasons for thine own, O death.

July 15, 1922  Death  "I have been so sorry to hear of the death of Stanley NEWMAN after such a brave fight for life. If ever there was one of nature’s gentlemen Stan was. Few, very few people, can have any idea of what suffering that boy went through, and how uncomplaingly he bore it all, how, when he knew that his system was riddled with the dread white plague, he refused to be disheartened, and through all bore himself with the bravery of a soldier. Of such stuff are heroes made. I have hoped that medical science might have been able to render him aid, but the disease was apparently too deep-seated, and it is probable that nothing but his buoyant spirit kept him alive through the last couple of years. His many friends and the friends of this merry boy, making a brave jest of his sufferings, must have been hundreds – will be offering their sympathy to his bereaved family, and I should like to be allowed to add that of mine to the number. His passing adds another to the list of faces I shall never see again. “And those we knew the loveliest of the best – Who from his vintage rolling time hath passed, Have drunk their cup a round or two And one by one passed silently to rest.” W. B. TEMPLE."

July 15, 1922  Bell Island Booms Again  Huge Quantities of Ore Exported – Splendid Outlook Ahead of This Industry: A resumption of activity on the basis of pre-war days is gradually taking place at Bell Island. The rate of export of ore during the last three weeks has been as great as ever. There were twenty steamers chartered this spring to take away ore to Rotterdam, and these carry from 4,000 to 11,000 tons each and will continue running until the 700,000 tons contracted for by Germans have all been taken away. There are also 400,000 tons to be taken to Sydney for use in the smelting plant there. There is now sufficient ore on the surface and in the stock piles, to keep up exports for the whole year, and it looks as if the whole demand for ore will keep on increasing, now every year till the destruction caused in Europe by the war is good, the opinion is that there will be a great activity at Bell Island during the next five years of so. There are now about 1,400 men working on the Island. The Trade Review is informed that when the season’s fishery is over, it is the intention to increase this working staff very considerably. There will then probably be about two or three thousand men constantly employed. It is useless for men to go to the Island seeking employment under present circumstances, however, as the company has about as many men as can be used, until underground operations are resumed in full swing, which will not be until the great bulk of ore already on hand has been shipped away. During the present week, five steamers cleared for Rotterdam with full loads of ore, ranging from 3,500 to 8,000 tons. A score of steamers will keep plying all the season if navigation remains open. 
July 15, 1922  Death  We regret to chronicle the passing of Walter J. YOUNG, who fell asleep on Tuesday morning last at the age of 32 years. He was a son of Mr and Mrs. James YOUNG, South Side, and was an employee with Mr. William ASHBOURNE for some years, behind the counter. He suffered from tuberculosis and had several operations at St. Anthony, but could not gain full recovery, although good treatment was accorded him. His suffering was intense but Walter bore it patiently. He leaves a wife, five brothers, Arthur, Lewis and Herbert living here, Joseph and Charles abroad, one sister, Mrs. Barbara GUY, here. Funeral was on Thursday at St. Andrew’s, Mr. HARNETT officiating. The members of S. U. F. and Masonic Lodges attended the funeral of which Mr. YOUNG was a member, being elected Worshipful Master of the Masonic Society last year. To the widow, parents and all relatives, the SUN extends it sympathy. 
July 22, 1922  Grand Falls War Memorial  Governor HARRIS goes to Grand Falls on July 23rd to lay the foundation for the War Memorial, to be erected in honour of the soldiers that fell in the war. 
July 22, 1922  South Side Breakwater  We are informed that the Breakwater on South Side will be started in a few days, and what the plans are for the construction, we cannot say, but if the work goes ahead it will mean employment for quite a few men, and considering a poor fishery, will be badly needed, although there will not be room for the bulk of the fishermen. Mr. O. HODDER in his motor “America” with Capt. Elias YOUNG and crew, are collecting the remainder of the sticks for the Breakwater. About 270 were towed down on Tuesday and she left again on Wednesday. 
July 22, 1922  The WHITES  Capt. Abram WHITE will command the Schr. Martello at the fishery, his brother Peter is gone Master of the Emblem of Hope. 
July 22, 1922  Fishing News  Traps around Twillingate have not done anything extra this year, in fact some have done nothing. Frank SHARP and Crew trapped 14 barrels on Wednesday. The Sagona reported lots of fish on the Labrador from Cape Harrison up and some places North showed a sign of fish. The Buelah, Capt.

July 22, 1922  Death  "At Bluff Head Cove on June 17th there passed peacefully away Annie Myrtle, beloved, and youngest daughter of Mr and Mrs. Jabez ROBERTS. At the early age of 18 Annie fell a victim to the dreaded disease – consumption, and after a short illness of only three months, exchanged time for eternity. Annie was a girl beloved by all who knew her, being of a very quiet, kind and patient disposition which was especially manifested during her sufferings. She was not afraid of death, but showed great joy, over the singing of her favorite hymn. “My Heavenly Home is bright and fair, No pain nor death can enter there. It’s glittering towers the sun outshine. That Heavenly Mansion shall be mine.” The funeral service was conducted in the South Side Meth. Church by Rev. LEWIS, and a very appropriate sermon was preached. Many beautiful wreaths were sent to adorn her casket, one of which was sent by the Bluff Head Cove Sunday School, of which she was a faithful member. The members of the Sunday School also followed all that was mortal of her to its last resting place, thus showing their love and respect for one who was snatched so young in life, from their midst. A father and mother, three sisters, and one brother are left to mourn the loss of one who was dearly loved by all, but they sorrow not as they who have no hope, for theirs is the glorious hope of a blessed reunion, when the toils of this life are brought to a close. “There is no death in Heaven; For they who gain that shore Have won their immortality, And they can die no more. Lord, Jesus, be our guide, And lead us safely on, Till night, and grief, and sin and death, Are past, and Heaven is won.”"

August 12, 1922  Letter to Mr. FRENCH (Part 1)  An Open Letter to Mr FRENCH & Others. To the Editor, Twillingate Sun. Dear Sir: Will you kindly favour me with a little space in your highly esteemed paper to publicly thank the people of this settlement, for favours that myself and family have received from their hands during our stay here. I may say that we have been residing in this settlement for the past five years, and during this time we have made many friends, and if life is spared, no doubt our thoughts will often wander back to the many happy hours we spent at Summerford. Be it known that I have tendered my resignation from the firm of The Notre Dame Trading Co. Ltd. of which Mr. R. J. FRENCH of Tizzard’s Harbour is Managing Director. Mr. Bertram FRENCH, son of Mr. R. J. FRENCH, is my successor, and we predict for him a brilliant future. We venture to say that the people will find in him a ready and willing man, and to be kind and courteous to all. Only a few days ago he returned from Chatham Business College, where he was studying certain business courses, and this training has just completed his education and fitted him for the work. It is a bounden duty of mine to speak of Mr. FRENCH and family in the highest terms. I have found him an energetic, faithful, and an honest man, and he is one who possesses all such qualities as go to make a man, he has all the ability and tact of a good business man, and no man is more anxious to pay his debts, and if ever the business of this country become normal again, we predict for him a prosperous future. Speaking of Mr. FRENCH and family, I must say that it would be very hard indeed to find a more hospitable people than they are; we may say that their doors are open to receive any one, and a hand of friendship is extended to one and all. 
August 12, 1922  Letter to Mr. FRENCH (Part 2)  The old gentleman, Mr. Thos. FRENCH, who has long passed the allotted span of man, is still hale and hearty, except a failing eyesight. He is ever ready for a chat on the times and these old stores are very interesting to the younger folk. To speak the truth, one must say that they are an industrious people, and to prove this, one should take a glance over the Jubilee Farm of which they are the owners, and may God speed their plough. To speak of business one must say that these people are greatly interested in the herring and lumbering trade. With regard to the herring trade, nothing inferior goes in their pack, nothing but a superior quality are put up by these people. They have two branches in the lumbering trade, one at Birchy Bay known as the Birchy Bay Lumber Co., of which Mr. Wm. G. FRENCH is Manger, and the other at Main Point, Gander Bay, of which Mr. Henry FRENCH is Manager there, and is known as T. & J. FRENCH & Sons, and any person requiring timber of any kind cannot do better than place an order with these people at either branch, and they will be sure to receive good value for their money. These people are the famous and well noted builders, having built many great vessels in their time and the last was the famous “Over the Top” built for Messrs BISHOP Son’s & Co., and the staunch little steam tug “Eagle” for Messrs Baine Johnson & Co., of which Mr. Mark BURT was the master builder and he turned her out a model of beauty. Mr. BURT occupies the position of Storekeeper with Mr. Thos. FRENCH, and is a man worthy of trust and any person having any dealing with him will find to their satisfaction that they having had a square deal every time. Again by way of remembrance, let me again thank Mr. FRENCH & family for all their kindness extended to me and my family, and for their untiring efforts to make us happy and contented; and for and on behalf of Mr. R. J. FRENCH, I have to thank the good people of Summerford for their kindness bestowed and wish them all continued success. And with thanks to you Mr. Editor for space. I remain yours very truly, A. COFFIN, Summerford, July 31st, 1922. 
August 12, 1922  Newfoundland Dog “Hero” Gets Collar  Saved 92 Lives From Wrecked Steamer December 1919. According to a message received in Thursday’s despatches, “Hero” the Newfoundland dog which rescued 92 lives when the S. S. Ethie was wrecked in December 1919, has received a collar and cross from the Starry Cross of Philadelphia. This dog, which is now owned by William CRAM of St. John’s, N. B., belonged to Reuben DECKER of Martin’s Point St. Barbe. When the Ethie went ashore, Hero brought a line from the ship to the shore, and by this means a heavier cable was got ashore and a breeches bouy rigged up, by which all on board the stranded ship were safely transferred to land. It is evident from the despatch that Mr. DECKER has parted with his splendid canine for a consideration.

Judging from the drift of his remarks I understood him to be an F. P. U. Delegate who is touring the Island, preaching “Prepare ye the way of COAKER and make his paths straight.” While his superfluity of speech greatly enchanted many of those present, yet be found among his audience, right thinking men who informed him that they were tired of such a repetition of “good intentions” and that something better was expected.

It is with regret we have to say farewell, because you were always one of those who were willing to do whatever you thought a duty, your presence amongst us has proved successful in our undertakings, and with assurance we admit its an unforgotten one, wherever you may go in life remembrance will remain in its sweetness and we trust you will carry with you abundant success, and may you obtain prosperity in your future task, and may the guiding hand of the Almighty sustain and keep you, and if we ever meet where there shall be no more separating. Please accept the accompanying gift as a token of our love and appreciation. Signed on behalf, L. HORWOOD. Reply: Dear Friends; Just a word to thank you for the pleasant surprise you gave me on the evening of my departure. Wherever I go I will carry with me the pleasant words and kind wishes of my dearest friends, and I will cherish the gift you gave me as the most sacred of my possessions. From your Dear Friend, Hilda L. JENKINS. 
August 26, 1922  Marriage  Wedding Bells – RICE – COOK At Montreal on June 7 by the Rev. T. P. PERRY, Mary, daughter of Mr and Mrs. M. COOK to Isaac RICE, only son of Mr and Mrs. Theadore RICE of Herring Nick, Newfoundland. 
August 26, 1922  Hospital Matters  The work on the Hospital site is suspended for a while and for what reason the Association does not seem to know. It apparently seems that some Directors are never notified concerning the construction, and that the Association are not asked to meet for the consideration of business therewith. Contributors are becoming weary, and all who took an interest toward contributing are lagging behind because of the setbacks, and because the management was left entirely to Dr. GRENFELL, who could hardly be expected to settle all the petty differences that often arise. Many have worked hard and credit is due them, but over and above all, something has entangled the mechanism so much, that the full power cannot be forthcoming, and as a consequence the sick have yet to sit up and wait, if they can afford to live at all.

I also wish to thank the many friends who visited her when at the hospital in St. John’s; the nurses for their kindness, and Dr. KEEGAN who took such interest in her, and who did everything possible to save her life.

September 2, 1922  Miss WHITE Leaves  "Dear Miss WHITE: We are very sorry the time has come when you have to go from our midst. As a teacher in the day’s school, and also in the Sunday school, your work has been highly valuable. The seed you have sown will yield an abundant harvest. As you go out from our midst to a new field of labour, our prayers and best wishes will follow you. Please accept this little gift, which is a slight token of our appreciation and love. The Sunday School, Bluff Head Cove. Reply: My dear friends: When on Tuesday evening, a party of you called upon me to surprise and give me a pleasant time, it was indeed a great surprise. I must say that I appreciated the motive which led you to call. It is with deep regret I have to leave you for a time, having worked among you so long. It has indeed been a pleasure to attend the Sunday school, and to labour among you as a day school teacher. Thank you one and all for your kind gift, which I shall always prize in honour of your love and appreciation. Eva WHITE." 
September 2, 1922  Another Tribute to Miss WHITE  Dear Miss WHITE: We regret that the time has come when you must sever your connections from us as Superintendent of the Bluff Head Cove Sunday School. We have all appreciated your excellent service, which you have rendered, both as Superintendent and as teacher of the Bible class girls. The truths you have installed will not be forgotten, and as you go to a new field, our prayers and good wishes will follow you. We shall miss you, but our loss will mean gain for others. Accept please this little gift, which is only a small token of our love and esteem. The Bluff Head Cove Sunday School. Reply: My Dear Friends; It came as a very pleasant surprise to me, on Tuesday evening, when a party of friends assembled at my home, to give me an enjoyable evening, and I appreciate the spirit which prompted you to do so. It is with regret that I leave the Sunday School which has always been my privilege to attend, and where it has been a pleasure to me to work among you. I accept the gift as a token of your love and esteem, and I shall take with me pleasant memories of the Sunday School and friends. Lucy WHITE. 
September 2, 1922  Personals  Miss Winnie GILLINGHAM was very fortunate in escaping with her life in the train collision at Sulphur Springs, St. Louis, when 60 were killed and 100 injured. Owing to delay in receiving a shipment of paper from Grand Falls, we are late in issuing the paper this week, and consequently some contributions that were handed us will appear next issue. Miss Annie CLARKE who studied the Art of Interior Decorating at Boston University last year passed her examinations with honours. A contest was held between the students in which they decorated the windows of a very exclusive store in Boston. As a result Miss CLARKE was awarded a prize of a beautiful Japanese hand-decorated handkerchief box with a pound of choice chocolates. Both their Tutor and the Proprietor of the store, highly commended the students on their excellent work. Miss CLARKE will continue her studies in the Arts at the University, the coming season. She is a daughter of Mr and Mrs. Peter CLARKE of Durrell. Mr and Mrs. Thomas DAWE left by Clyde last Saturday for Bonne Bay where Mr. DAWE takes up the work as C. of E. Teacher. Rev. M. K. GARDNER left for Botwood by Clyde same date. Mr. William HAYWARD also came by Clyde on Friday for a holiday. Mrs. Annie MUTFORD left last week for St. John’s to visit Mrs. E. WATSON. Mr. W. J.

September 2, 1922  The Breakwater  (Editor Twillingate Sun). Dear Sir, I don’t think you will find one right-thinking man in Twillingate but who will say the breakwater ought to be put outside where the vessels anchor. Just think, if there was a Labrador vessel run in here on a dark night, and had 70 or 80 souls onboard, as we have seen men, women and children on board, and a gale of wind sprang up and she was driven on the breakwater, I don’t think the people on board would have much chance of saving their lives, just as well run into a cliff. I think those thousands of dollars wasted, as far as doing Twillingate any good, as it will make the harbour worse than ever. Some of these men who rowed so much about it in the public meeting, and was going to anchor their vessels outside of the breakwater and let her drive in on it and beat up, we don’t hear a word from them now the money is in sight, they have got their consciences covered. If all the right thinking men came forward as they ought, and say we won’t have it at Harbour Rock, if we can’t have it where we want it we won’t have it anywhere. Better use the money for some other purpose. It is a wrong thing to use public money in such a way, after men kicking against it so much, then after that, cover their conscience and say we will have the job, we will have the money, let the people talk if they like. We will have the cream and the hard toiler can have what is left. Now, my friends, there is a great reckoning day coming, when every man’s deeds will be known. My opinion is that in thirty years time we will be sorry for putting the breakwater there. Just look at the little schooner John Earle. She went ashore on Harbour Rock and beat up in a short time. A man would have been pretty smart to get out of her. Yours sincerely, One Who Can Think. 
September 2, 1922  Letter from Adjt. MARSH  Dear Mr. Editor: Will you please allow me to say a few words through your paper. The two years of our stay in Twillingate passed all too quickly and almost before we realised it could be, we were saying farewell. Being a native of Twillingate, sentiment is strong at the time of leaving. I have made many friends in two years, and in fact, I have been conscious of a friendly attitude in all I have met, and both I and Mrs. MARSH will retain many pleasant memories of out stay. Our associates in religious work have been loyal and hard-working, and some very choice spirits are to be found among them. The business men have been very kind and considerate, and have never pressed for payments that circumstances have sometimes delayed. Our family physician Dr. WOOD, one of the most patient of men, has been exceedingly kind and painstaking, and in our opinion, has many times proved himself worthy of our highest confidence. The general public, of whom a large percentage have attended our services, have in many ways exhibited their willingness to assist and cooperate, and although depressed financial conditions have made much desired assistance impossible, we have been made to feel that the spirit of generosity still lives. You will quite understand that we do not mean to say there are no exceptions to these rules, but exceptions may generally be very well overlooked and forgotten. At the time of our departure we desire to leave our thanks and good wishes to all, not forgetting the public prayers of the Rev. Mr. WILKINSON, in our recent illness. We wish the SUN, which has always been a welcome arrival to our home, every success. Yours very truly, W. T. MARSH, Adjt. 
September 2, 1922  Death  Please allow me space in your valuable paper to record the death of Mrs. Elizabeth BOYD, of Tizzard’s Harbour, who passed peacefully away on Aug. 20th. The burial service was conducted by Rev. J. A. WILKINSON, who preached a most appropriate sermon, the text being found in Thessalonians, 4th Chap. 13th vrs. She leaves to mourn her sad loss one son, Robert, and eight grandchildren. Her husband and 4 sons and 2 daughters having predeceased her. – Correspondent.

September 2, 1922  Boom for Bell Island  400 more men employed at Iron Isle. As a result of the coal miner's strike in Sydney, Bell Island is in for a boom, and over 300 men have been added to the B_____ (illegible) payroll. Some 17 boats which were under charter to take coal from Sydney to American ports, have been sent on to Bell Island, and will arrive there today. These boats will be loaded with iron ore and will be sent direct to Germany, where there is a ready market. Roy H. WOLVIN [possibly WOIVIN] has stated his determination to fight the striking coal miners to a finish, and it is unlikely that the strike will be over for some three weeks. There is sufficient coal at present in St. John’s to supply all needs for three months. 
September 2, 1922  The “Hawke”  Major COTTON Has New YACHT. The new gasoline yacht Hawke, which Major F. S. COTTON is using in connection with his pit-prop industry at Hawke's Harbour, is undoubtedly the finest and fastest ship of her kind in the country. She is 60 feet long, and draws only a little over three feet of water, a point of the utmost importance, as she is used in cruising around the shallow waters of the West Coast. The Hawke has twin engines, each of 150 horsepower, and she is driven by two propellers. The engines are run off magnetos, and are started by storage batteries which are charged by a Delco outfit. The gas and oil are passed through several tanks by a small electric engine. The bilges are pumped by another electric engine. The ship is very compact, but exceedingly comfortable. There are three cabins, two containing two berths each, and one amidships, which has four berths. There are also two berths for the crew in the engine room. A comfortable dining saloon is situated amidships. The yacht also contains a bathroom with shower and hip baths. She is 25 tons gross, and 17 tons net, and is capable of a maximum speed of just over 20 knots. She can carry 500 gallons of gasoline, 25 gallons of oil, and 150 gallons of water. While at Hawke Harbour this summer, a propeller shaft was damaged, but this was repaired while the ship was in over three feet of water. The Hawke recently came to Curling with Major COTTON and party, and was sent back to Hawke Harbour under Captain OLSEN. – Evening Telegram.

September 16, 1922  Death  The death of R. H. O’DWYER, Esq., at St. John’s, on Monday removes from the public service, one of its ablest officials, a good citizen and a sincere friend. Mr. O’DWYER had been failing in health for some considerable time, and for the last couple of months, but poor hopes of his recovery were entertained by those who were in the confidence of his friends. The duties of Commissioner of Public Charities were onerous and trying, but in his intercourse with the public and in his discharge of the details of his work, he was most considerate and affable. There are many outside the immediate circle of his acquaintance who were privileged to know and to recognize his sterling worth, his sincerity and straight forwardness. A good and wise man has thus been taken from the scenes of mortal life, and in his death the community has lost a worthy member and a most humane man. Mr. O’DWYER, who was in his 64th year, is survived by Mrs. O’DWYER, two daughters and one son. – H. G. Standard.

September 16, 1922  Death  Dear Sir, Will you please give me space in your much read paper to record the death of one of our best friends, in the person of John MARSH, who passed to the great beyond on August 22nd after a short illness of fourteen days. All that could be done to relieve him was done, but to no avail. His son with other help, took him to the Doctor at Pilley’s Island, but nothing could be done. He was 63 years and nine months (if I am not mistaken) and leaves to mourn his said loss, a widow, one son and two daughters, one of whom is wife of Samuel DAW of Grand Falls, the other the wife of Mark FORSEY, of Budgel’s Cove, a nearby settlement. His son is living at home. He also leaves five brothers James, George, Jasper, Henry and William, one sister Mary, and a large number of friends to mourn the loss of one that was much thought of. He was laid to rest in the C. of E. cemetery on the 24th, the service being taken by the C. of E. Teacher of Leading Tickles. A very large crowd attended the funeral. He was a member of the L. O. A., also a member of F. P. U. His brother Orangemen paid their last respects by walking before him, and dropping ribbon on the coffin. The writer sympathizes with the family. “T’will not be long our journey here, Each broken sigh and falling tear, Will soon be gone and all will be A cloudless sky, a waveless sea.” Yours truly, 5, 12, 9, 10, 1, 8, 13, 1, 18, 19, 9, Winter House Cove, Via Leading Tickles. Sept. 2nd, 1922. 
September 16, 1922  Marriage  A very quiet but pretty wedding was solemnized on Friday, Sept. 8th, when Mr. George GIDGE and Miss Annie LUFF, both from Campbellton, were united in the holy bonds of matrimony by Rev. J. A. WILKINSON, at the Methodist Parsonage. They young couple arrived same evening by S. S. Clyde at 4 pm and at 8 pm they engaged Mr. STUCKLESS with his car, to motor them to the Parsonage, where the ceremony was performed in the presence of Mr. Alex SANSOM and Miss Bessie FACEY. After the ceremony the party motored back to Mr. Wm. HOUSES’s where a very appetizing but impromptu spread was prepared by Mrs. HOUSE, after which the party dispersed, and Mrs. HOUSE very kindly did all possible to accommodate the young couple for the night. The following evening they returned to their future home, Campbellton, by S. S. Clyde. Mr. GIDGE formerly lived at Friday’s Bay, but has for the past number of years been engaged contracting at Millertown and elsewhere. Miss LUFF is from Exploits, but for several years has served at different avocations at Sydney, St. John’s and elsewhere. The SUN and its readers extend congratulations to Mr and Mr. GIDGE and wish them many, many years of happy wedded life. 
September 16, 1922  Strike at Hawke's Bay  No sooner does the Hawke’s Bay industry become settled, than strike fever becomes present among workers. The strikers number 129 men and many of them are hungry, but the A_____ [not clearly legible but looks like Ariel, but is likely A.N.D.] Company has naturally no intention of providing them with supplies, unless they return to work. The men struck for day’s pay instead of contract work as agreed. The balance of the 400 men are still working and satisfied with conditions, and they have been employed ever since the Company began operations, while the strikers are ones that joined up recently. Constable BURSEY and three other constables are by now at Hawke’s Bay, and Major COTTON says if the strikers mean trouble in demanding passage, then he is fully prepared. He claims that these men do not intend to work, and have already demanded that the Government or the company send them home. Major COTTON flew to the scene last Friday, and claims that the West Coast men are fully satisfied and working on. The demand made was $65 a month and found. They had been getting $2.50 per cord for wood cut and left at the stump, $1.00 per cord for strip barking, and $1.00 per cord for carting to the shore. These rates compare favourably with those paid by companies engaged in similar enterprises. Can COTTON Conquer? Later: The strike is believed over, and the men gone back on the job at the regular rate. The West Coast men have earned $65 over their keep in a month. Then why the strike on the part of the other men? It seems some men consider that working days are over, as the same applied to the 117 men that Sir M. P. CASHIN was instrumental in getting home, after a fight for help from the Government. All we say is that if the A. N. D. Co arranged with the men, and not the Government, that to make a party issue of this matter is unfair to any Government, even if the Government arranged with the A. N. D. Co. to take on men to help pressing conditions. No doubt that the contentions and refusal to work on the part of men, is fostered and stimulated because such high rates of tariff are tolerated in this country, and that earnings, though large, are mopped up through a diabolical rate of duty.

Sea monsters which are reported to be from forty to sixty feet long, have attacked boats engaged in fishing out of British Harbour, Trinity Bay, and fisherman are afraid to go out on the grounds. A large school of these monsters, of which no description has been received, appeared off the coast a few days ago, and are still in the Bay. An organized expedition will be sent from the settlements off which the school lies, in an effort to capture or disperse this strange menace to the prosecution of the fishery.

October 14, 1922  Noon Day Gun  We are at present subject to all kinds of times here in Twillingate. It may be that certain conditions necessitate the different firms in having a certain time to close or open, but it is inconvenient when considering that school children, who have to attend school at proper time: The sun time, as given at the Telegraph Office, has been lost sight of, yet we think that uniform time would better suit all conditions, if the firms could manage their work differently. Perhaps the Government would let us have the old gun that was laid aside last week at Signal Hill. We read that a breech loader has been installed, instead of the muzzle loader. Of course it would need a keeper and a few pounds of powder, but it might cause all of us to adjust the clock each day in accordance with its timely report. However, as it stands at present, very much seems to be lost and maybe some firms lose the dollars that other firms get, owing to different hours of closing and opening.

October 28, 1922  Save and Caution  Some repairs are being done on the roads this week and it has been suggested that instead of plank for bridges, which are laid on the surface, sticks of wood – birch wood with rind to save decay – would be better, if laid underneath the road, so that the gravel can be spread level with the surface, and thereby saving expense and also saving rickety rackety bumps, etc., when driving in carts, carriages or motorcars. We should think the suggestion a worthy one and hope the old bridge system will be done away with, especially if it will eliminate accidents to horses, and thereby save broken legs caused by broken planks.

November 11, 1922  Bluenose Wins  Gloucester, Oct. 16th – The Bluenose successfully defended the International Fishermen’s trophy today, when she took the third race of the series from the American challenger, Henry Ford, in wind that varied from ten knots at the start to upward of twenty-five knots when the windward leg was reached. The Bluenose got the better of the start, leading by fifteen seconds over the line. She increased this lead to one minute and five seconds on the close reach to first mark, and again lengthened the gap to fifty-seven seconds in the third reach to the 4th mark. In coming on the wind, for the ten mile muzzler to windward, the Bluenose immediately demonstrated her superiority in out-pointing and out-footing her rival. Wth her decks awash to the hatches, the Ford decided to douse sail. Five minutes after this had been done she carried away her foretopmast, relieving herself of foretopsail and jib topsail. The Bluenose which previously had taken in the foretopsail, doused the staysail. The defender gained on the challenger throughout the thresh. Having opened up the lead on the fourth mark she continued to widen the gap to the close haul, and finished with her opponents bull down on the horizon. Official finish times: Bluenose, 4:48:38; Henry Ford, 4:56:29. 
November 11, 1922  Schooner Violet J.  The Schr. Violet J., owned by Ed. JONES, Little Bay Islands, arrived in port this morning on her maiden voyage. The schooner left Little Bay Islands on Tuesday last and met stormy weather, which necessitated making harbour at Twillingate. Leaving that port after the sailing of the Meigle, the vessel reached Port Union some hours ahead of the steamer. On the passage from Port Union, very heavy winds were encountered, but the vessel proved an admirable sea boat, and came through without the slightest mishap. The Violet J. was built at Little Bay Islands last summer by Mr. K. HULL, with 5 helpers. Work was started on the 19th of May and carried through with despatch, the craft being ready for sea some weeks ago. She has on board a cargo of 700 qtls dry fish. Everything on the vessel is spanking new and the workmanship was highly commented on by a large number of people, who viewed her at Job’s Wharf, where she has hauled to discharge. – Telegram, Oct. 30th. 
November 11, 1922  Woman’s Rash Act  Attempted Suicide by Drowning. At 8:30 last night, a 28 year old domestic named Agnes BENMORE, attempted suicide by jumping over the Susu Shipping Company’s wharf. The unfortunate woman, whose former name was HICKEY, and married some years ago to a seaman of Bay St. George, but he has not since lived with her, and is at present out of the country. The woman has been in the service of a family in the West End of the City but was discharged without a shelter. It is thought she became temporarily insane. At the time of the occurrence last night there were several persons on the wharf, including the watchman Mr. WALSH. None of these saw the woman however, and their first intimation that anything was amiss was when they heard a scream. This was also heard by two members of the crew on the schooner Seabird, moored at Bishop’s Cove. These immediately pushed off in a boat, and found the woman about twenty-five feet out from the breastwork, face down in the water and sinking. When taken ashore she was unconscious. Constable BURKE coming on the scene, procured a cab and took the unfortunate woman to the lockup. An examination by Dr. CARNELL did not reveal that she was ‘insane.’ The woman evidently premeditated suicide as her fur collar, hat and gloves were found on the head of the wharf where she had placed them before jumping overboard. – Telegram, Oct. 31st.

When I began to write this article, is was really my intention to speak of a hot supper which was given to me in King George V Hotel, by Mr. and Mrs. Uriah FREAKE, Conductor CRAWLEY, Mr. Curtis BOONE, and the girls of the hotel. I certainly enjoyed the supper and also enjoyed the games we had, and I wish to thank the above mentioned parties for their kindness to me and also to the guests that were present, who helped to make the supper a grand success, I hope in the near future to be able to repay their kindness. Since my first going to Lewisporte I have met many friends. I wish them one and all a happy and prosperous New Year. Yours truly, Kitty BUTLER, Leading Tickles East, Oct. 30th, 1922.

November 11, 1922  Rev. H.A. GOODWIN  Rev. H.A. GOODWIN arrived here by Clyde on Saturday last, and held services at North and South Side Methodist Churches on Monday and Tuesday nights on the Temperance question. He is travelling in the interest of the Evangelistic and social service of Canada. Collections were taken at the services in aid of the work, and to help defray travelling expenses of the visitor. After the Meetings held in the Methodist Churches on Monday and Tuesday nights, the following Resolutions were read, and which are to be used by the Committees that were formed at the meetings. “If elected to the Legislature, I will 1. Support the maintenance and effective enforcement of the present Prohibition Act. 2. Vote for the enactment of the “Rules and Regulations” as promulgated by the Governor in Council, October 23rd, 1917, the most important points of these regulations being the limitation of the amount of alcoholic liquor which might be supplied to any one person at one time, and the limitation of the number of prescriptions and of the quantity of liquor, which might be supplied by any Doctor during one month. 3. Vote for the enactment of the finding of the Royal Commission on Prohibition in regard to the Controller’s Department, namely the abolition of the office of Controller, the placing of the department under a Board of three members, a medical man, clergyman and a business man, etc., who would have entire power over a general manager, and all other officials. No doubt but that the resolutions are well framed, and we hope to see them enforced, but we wonder if it will not be easy for the candidates on the Government ticket to promise almost anything to gain election. Rev. Mr. GOODWIN showed the value of Prohibition in Canada and the States, and spoke well on the Evangelism and Social Service in the Sunday services, and gave some descriptions of the many cases that are treated in the Institutions. A Committee of five men were arranged on North Side on Monday night as follows: Messrs A. H. HODGE, John ELLIOTT, Andrew ROBERTS, Henry SPENCER, Stewart MOORS. Also five on South Side were appointed on Tuesday night, as follows: Messrs. Elias YOUNG, Charles WHITE, Solomon SKINNER, Samuel MINTY, Harlan RIDOUT.

November 11, 1922  Caribou Home Discovered  Aerial Photo of Tracks. Mr. F. S. COTTON believes that he has discovered the home of a very large herd of caribou, and he bases this belief on the strength of an aerial photograph which he has, of a section of the interior, showing what appear to be many caribou tracks. The picture is now on exhibition in DICK’s & Co window. The photograph was taken from a height of 3000 feet, and clearly shows several tracks in the snow covered ground which Mr. COTTON says are about two feet wide and two feet deep. They seem to converge on the centre and look very much like a great spider’s web. If these are caribou tracks, the theory that the animals are rapidly becoming extinct, is disproved. There is a general impression among local hunters, and others conversant with the habits of the caribou however, that their numbers have been greatly depleted through hunting, killing for food, wanton destruction and slaughter for sale and for use as fox bait. The season is now open and will remain so until January. The close season will be from Feb. 1st to July 31st. The next close season is from October 1st to the 20th.

November 25, 1922  Editorial Notes  The price has advanced for Labrador fish and at St. John’s two firms are now paying $5.00 per quintal. This is partly because the export tax has been lifted, and evidently a certain amount, 12,070 quintals, will be bought at the above mentioned figure. The price generally amongst the firms is $4.50; this additional 50 cents is accounted for through the import tax of 40 cents being cancelled in Spain and out 10 and 20 cents a quintal export tax, which will mean in the vicinity of $180,000 extra in the fisherman’s pockets.

November 25, 1922  Fire  E. ROBERT & Co’s Shop, Destroyed by Fire. On Thursday night the shop and contents belonging to E. ROBERTS and Co. were totally destroyed by fire. The fire was first seen by Mrs. HODGE between eleven and twelve o’clock, who called Mr. C. L. HODGE, and he immediately gave the alarm. A crowd was soon on the scene, but the fire had made such progress that it was evidently impossible to save the shop. Every effort was then put forth to confine the fire to the one building, and save the other stores. Two rows of men were stationed from the salt water to the burning building, and with buckets passed from hand to hand a steady stream of water was poured on the flames. After about four hours hard fighting, the fire was got under control and the other buildings saved. The origin of the fire is unknown. The building and stock carried some insurance. Several of the fair sex were there lending a hand, passing the buckets back and forth, and no doubt encouraged the men (especially the young men) to put forth double efforts. 
November 25, 1922  Sad Drowning Accident  A sad drowning accident occurred here yesterday morning, when a young lad named Robert LAMBERT lost his life, at the age of 17 years. It seems that Robert and James LAMBERT had been across to the North side of the harbour, to the scene of last night’s fire, and were on their way back. When near the Brandies, a breaking sea overturned the boat, throwing the two lads into the water. James managed to reach the boat, which had righted itself, but Robert was unable to do so, and sank before help could reach him. His body was recovered shortly after. Robert had been living with his grandfather, Mr. Andrew LAMBERT, to whom we extend sincere sympathy. 
November 25, 1922  Death  At Rest: Harry’s Harbour, Nov. 11th, 1922. Dear Sir, On November 2nd the Angel of death passed this way, and took from this place the person of Mrs. George VERGE, after a long illness, at the early age of 27 years. The writer visited her several times during her illness. Her last words to me were, that she was trusting in Jesus. She leaves to mourn a husband, two children, a father, six brothers and one sister. She was much loved by all. On Sunday, Nov. 5th the deceased was laid to rest by Ensign FORWARD of Jackson’s Cove, and a large crowd attended to pay their last respects to her, by following to the grave side. The words of the Ensign were very impressive from the text “There is but a step between me and death.” G. YATES, Lieut.

November 25, 1922  Tariff Reform Trade Review (part 1)  Nov. 11th. Our interview on Tariff this week is with the oldest business man in the Dry Goods trade on Water Street, Mr. William FREW. He came to Newfoundland in 1860 to Baird Bros. and was afterwards buyer for Baird’s firm, making altogether about 100 trips across the Atlantic. “When first I came to this country,” Said Mr. FREW, “The revenue was about $320,000 and the population 160,000 so that the taxation was $2 per capita. Today the taxation is about $40 per head. A man with a family of 8 pays $320. This tax when you apply it to the fisherman, makes it impossible for him to live and pay his bills. My suggestion would be to do away with the super tax, surtax, and sales tax, and go back to the simple tariff of 1914. Reduce Expenditure. In addition to this we should reduce the public expenditure, and in this way alone, a saving of half a million dollars could be made. The staffs in the public offices, would have to be reduced, and this could be accomplished without impairing the public service. It needs a strong man at the head of affairs to carry out the financial reforms that are necessary. In the Dry Goods business the taxation is very heavy and in the case of ready-mades comes to 71 percent. Yard stuff, sheeting, flannels, etc., come to about 50 percent. The system of taxation is almost as objectionable as the tax itself, and the making out of customs entries is a most puzzling and annoying process, which should be altered at once. Even if the taxation is not reduced, let the tax be a straight simple one, and the business people will endure it better." 
November 25, 1922  Tariff Reform Trade Review (part 2)  Struck the Nail on the Head. “As to the plan of reducing expenditure and enabling the producers to made a living out of their work, I think that Mr. MORINE and Mr. GOSLING whose opinions I read in the Trade Review, struck the nail on the head. They are on the right track. From my own experience I can say that the revenue never increases in proportion to the increased taxation that is put on, after you reach a certain point, and that point was when our dry goods tax was about 45 percent in 1900-14. “A case in point is postage. Not long ago Great Britain reduced her postage rates from two pence to one and a half pence, with the result that in one year, the postal revenue increased 4,000,000 pounds. While Great Britain was reducing her postage rates, we were increasing ours to four cents for foreign letters. I doubt if the revenue will be benefited. “Another factor that makes goods too high in this country is freight rates. The present situation in freights looks like a combine, for as seamen’s wages have come down and shops cost less to run than in the war years and 1920, it is only reasonable to look for a reduction in freights more on a level with the declined cost of running. We should be further back towards the rates of 1914 than we are. You see the inequality better in the passenger rates." Something Wrong. “The first class trip to England before the war or at least in the early nineties, was 10 pounds. Today it is 40 pounds. There is something wrong about this, and it all helps to make the price of imports higher as over head expenses. The dry goods trade, since I was a buyer, has been gradually going from Great Britain to the United States, and the exorbitant freight and passenger rates to the Old Country help to do this. The government, I realize must raise sufficient revenue to carry on, but the carrying on must be reduced to more economic lines, and then they need not tax so heavily. “People will buy more and consume more when they have the feeling that they are not overtaxed. I could put my opinions in a nutshell by saying: Let them put the rates back to those of 1914 and then make everybody who imports goods, pay the legitimate duties on them.” 
November 25, 1922  Death  Died at 117 Years. Saskatoon, Sask. Oct 30 – The death of Henry LORENZ, aged 117 years, at Pleasant Dale, Northern Saskatchewan, was reported here last night. According to the family records, he was born in Austria on May 9th, 1805 – the year of the Battle of Trafalgar. Up to a year ago, LORENZ was a heavy smoker, but the increased price of the weed caused him to stop. He did the chores on his farm until a few days before his death. 
November 25, 1922  Death  In Memoriam – Obadiah MANUEL. “The old order changeth, giving place to new, And God fulfils himself in many ways” And so year by year the veterans of yesterday pass. It seems but such a brief space that we left the late Mr. Obadiah MANUEL, failing it is true, but in fair health, and today he is not, and the circle of familiar old faces is still shrinking. Unobtrusive and retiring to the point of shyness, the late Mr. MANUEL filled his nitch of useful work in this life, doing his “duty in that state of life to which it had pleased God to call him” – as the Church Catechism puts it, neither anticipating nor asking for praise. How many a craft has weathered the gale because of the care which he sewed into each piece of canvas, only the recording angel knows. If each man’s work shall be tried as if by fire, his will surely survive the test. As a father and husband, he was what every Britisher tries to be. As a Churchman he was absolutely generous to every call. As a neighbour he was kind and, until death disrupted a happy home, kept open house for every stranger. His was the lot that falls only seldom to fathers. Within a few years, two sons in the prime of their young manhood succumbed to pneumonia. He and his wife survived the dreadful repetition of shock, but only those intimately connected know how heavy the blow and how rent the hearts of the aged pair. Then the partner of his life left him, and alone with his surviving child nearly two thousand miles away, a lonely man lived his last few months. A daughter-in-law gave all that a daughter could not, and it is with feelings of infinite gratitude for her ministrations, that her name is held in remembrance. There are now two more graves that we shall have to spread flowers on when next we see Twillingate. 
November 25, 1922  Notes from Bridgeporte  Boat Arkansas lost at Flint Rock Cove near Bridgeport. Capt. David GLAVINE, owner, of Fortune Hr. and crew of four men, arrived here after a thrilling experience, leaving Twillingate on the 12th, after disposing of their summer’s voyage, arrived at Tizzard’s Hr. and left again for home on the 13th about noon, getting off Western Head, they got becalmed and about 7:30 pm a gale of wind from the N. E. and snow, overtook them, but they ran before the storm with a hope of reaching Bridgeporte, but owing to the intense darkness and blinding snow, no land was sighted. After leaving the Full Island until Pussel’s HR. Head was made, and being so close to the land that nothing could be done, but let run the anchor, and owing to the storm of wind which was then raging, she drifted helplessly on the rock’s about 9:30 pm, where she pounded so heavily, that she soon filled with water, and the crew had some difficulty in getting but their supplies and luggage. They then took to the cliff, where they managed to battle through the night, and in the early morning they walked to the South side of Bridgeporte, and hailed the residents of the opposite side. Mr. Hiram JENNINGS’s boat was despatched for them, and they were soon hospitably entertained by Mr and Mrs. P.P. SMALL, and after a good repast and a rest, the Captain again travelled to Morton’s Harbour to report the loss to the Secretary of the Insurance Scheme. The surveyors, Messrs. TAYLOR, visited the wreck later, and after the storm abated, succeeded in getting the provisions and luggage removed and stored. On Thursday, with help and a motorboat, the sails running gear, chains and anchors were removed and taken to Bridgeporte. The crew left on Friday morning in P.P. SMALL’s motorboat for their homes, feeling thankful for their miraculous escape. Of all the improvements the misnamed Reform Government are making in the different outports, in building breakwaters and installing telephone service, Bridgeporte is not participating. I would suggest a public telephone here. It would be much appreciated and more especially at the next election, as the electors here could phone over their votes to Morton’s Harbour, and thus save themselves the long walk to the booth as at the last election. Thanking you in anticipation, I remain yours truly, KNOCKS.
