Steel Mill
Causes Local
Biff Steel Mill at Comox Inside
of One Year Is Predicted
Quite a. lot of excitement was caused locally during the past week when
the Vancouver dally papers curried
a news Item to the effect that u steel
mill would be an actuality at Comox
within one year. Frankly speaking
we also goi excited ami again interviewed a prominent business man
who Is .supposed to "have Inside in-
tormatlon." Two weeks ago this
same man told us that so far as a
steel mill was concerned "there was
nothing to It," As slated we again
Interviewed the gentleman. This time
his only remark was "piffle." Anyway we are sharing the excitement of
quite a few of the residents and whilst
a steel mill at Comox would undoubtedly benefit the whole district, we aro
of the opinion that the community
lo benelll most would be Uoyston. The
popular seaside resort would be b
a magnificent residential district for
ihe many hundreds that would of
necessity find employment at tho big
mill across the bay. The following
is ihe account appearing in the daily
papers and we publish it for the benefit of our readers who do not happen
to have read It before:
Vancouver -Steel production, on a
scale which will vie with that of the
world's largest centres, will become
one of the ureal Industries of the
coast, within the next year, according
to J. W. (foldsworth. managing director of the Iron Processes, Ltd., of
London,  now  visiting Vancouver.
Discovery by Mr. Ilolsworth of thc
iron properties of black sand, that
is found in large quantities on Vancouver Island, Texada Island, and in
the Queen Charlotto Islands, has decided his company to establish steel
centres at those points. Mr. Molds-
worth stated.
"The first," he said, "will be started
within the next twlovo months at Comox harbor."
The particular virtue of this black
Hand. Mr. Holdaworth explained, was
that ils utilization in steel production
eliminated the stages of pig-iron production and subsequent "puddling"
which In the past has been inevitable
steps In the process. By the new method, be said, steel would be produced
In two nnd u half days, instead of the
week which had always been considered the fastest production time possible.
"Moreover," Mr. Holdsworth added,
"by using black sand, it is possible to
minimize the cost of production. A
most valuable by-product from the
raw material, which can be obtained
in largo quantities, is alloy of titanium, used in manufacture of ioois to?
steel working. And In some of the
deposits gold and platinum are to be
found in such high percentages that
steel production will give place to the
mining of these mineral!'. Thus we
can be assured of an income which Is
only indirectly connected with the actual steel production."
Although he believes thai sufficient
runds are ai hand to make the British
company independent of outside capital, Mr. Holdsworth intends to return
lo England through New York, where
a conference is being held liy Lord
Melchett, Charles M, Schwab, nnd the
directors ut' Chase's bank. The conference concerns the llrst Anglo-American financial compromise, Involving some £600,000,000, and be intends
lo investigate the possibilities of utilization of a portion of this capital in
connection with the proposed steel
Industry on the coast.

At the meeting of the Board of
Trade on Tuesday night, Mr. John
Inglis brought up the question of the
provision of a landing place for airplanes. He said that ln view of the
Increasing popularity of air travel, the
Board of Trade should interest themselves in acquiirng such n landing
ground. It would require a plot about
500 yards square, It would not be
long before such a place would be as
much of a necessity as a railway depot, ln fact In some countries lt was
so now.
Mr. Wood, thc secretary, said that
he thought if the Dominion Government were asked, they would send 'i
man from the Air Department to give
any advice along this matter and on
motion by Mr. Inglis, seconded by Mr.
Wood, a letter is to be forwarded to
the government asking them to send
a man to look Into the requirements
with a view to establishing an air
port, the question being referred to the
Industrial Committee.
Mr. Wood suggested that the Board
of Trade ask the Board of School
Trustees to Include a certain amount
of rudimentary aviation and construction of airplanes in their manual
training course. Mr. Inglis said this
had already been considered by thc
trustees and would undoubtedly be Included.

Members of Canadian Club Hear
Eloquent Address
Speaking on "The Point of View of
the Maritimes," Mr. W. G. Ernst, MP,,
for Queens-Lunenburg, N.S.. addressed
the Canadian Club in the dining room
of the Native Sons' Hall on Friday
evening, those who attended coming
away with a different Idea of the problems facing the provinces of the extreme eastern part of the Dominion.
After a most delightful luncheon in
charge of Mrs. McPhee and Mrs. McLennan, the president. Mr, B. S.
Abrams, introduced the speaker, who,
he said, had won a Rhodes" .scholarship and gone to Oxford In 1919. Upon
his return he had taken up the practice of law and waa looked upon as one
of the coming men of Canada.
The problems of the Maritimes. said
Mr. Ernst, could be placed under three
heads: Geographical, Historical and
Industrial. They were connected with
Quebec by the Qaspe Peninsula, which!
in places was only thirty miles wide,,
and the State of Maine nearly cut
them off from the rest of Canada.,
This meant that they were 250 miles
further away from the rest of Canada
than if they could go through In a,
straight Hne which meant much in
the hauage of freight.
They had no immigration problems,
as the great tide of immigration experienced by Canada since 1900 has
passed by the Maritimes, practically,
the whole population being descended
from pioneer stock.
Agriculture was the chief industry,
with fishing coming next, but due to
the Fordney tariff the markets of the
eastern states was closed to them and
they suffered from a lack of markets.
There were a great many small manufacturing concerns In the market for
the products of which was domestic.
Prior to Confederation, prosperity
had been notable in the Maritime
provinces. The wooden ships of Nova
Scotia sailed the world round, and
political leaders anticipated 500,000
Maritimes' seamen would be counted
before long. That expectation failed
when the wooden ship was superseded.
To the Maritimes Confederation was
held out by Ontario and Quebec as a
means to open great markets to the
Industries of Nova Scotia- und New
Brunswick. Those pictures of prosperity, drawn In good faith, have never
been realized, said Mr. Ernst.
The agitation for secession was reviewed, Mr. Ernst portraying the stagnation which followed adoption by the
United States of the Fordney-McCum-
ber tariff. Emigration of young people
and other factors in the dissatisfaction
were mentioned.
Believing the difficulties of thc Maritimes could be solved within Confederation, a Royal Commission had been
formed to investigate. The report presented- by the Duncan Commission
showed that increased subsidies to the
three Maritime Provinces were warranted, because of lack of provincial
lands. The three Eastern Provinces
had made possible the development of
Canada, with addition of great land:
areas to other Western Provinces. The
Maritimes were therefore entitled to ai
"quid pro quo" ln lieu of land.
Mr. Ernst reviewed the grounds
whereon the Duncan Commission advised that freight rates on westbound
traffic should be twenty per cent less
than on eastbound goods. The effect
was already notable in improved conditions.
The Duncan Commission had recommended payment by the Dominion if
a bounty on coal, equal to thc duty
Imposed, but this had not been given
effect. Also awaiting action was the
recommendation that Halifax and St.
John be established as Canada's Winter ports, by concessions which would
divert trade from Boston and Portland.
"Do not think I come from the Maritimes ln any spirit of pessimism. Conditions there are now better than I
can remember," said Mr. Ernst in
At the close of Mr, Ernst's eloquent
address a hearty vote of thanks was
moved by Mr. J, M. Mitchell, seconded
by Mr. J. H. Eakln.
A weding of considerable Interest
to residents of Cumberland was sol-:
emnlzed on Saturday last at Ladysmlth, when Katherlne, second daugli-j
ter of .Mr. and Mrs. Sam. Robertson, |
of Pendrith avenue, became the brine
of Mr. Clifford O'Neill, the ceremony j
being performed by the Rev. A. .!.
McLcllan. of Ladysmlth. The newly
weds journeyed on to Victoria to
spend a few days with Mr. O'Neill's
parents returning io Cumberland on
Wednesday morning.

Coal Resources
To Be Utilized
B.C. Official Going to Pittsburgh

Victoria. Nov, 16. To keep the Provincial Government in close touch
with the latest scientific developments
In the use of coal, Hon. W, A. McKenzie. minister of mines, today Instructed James Dixon, chief inspector
of mines, to represent the province
at the second international conference
on bituminous coal, at Pittsburgh, under the Carnegie Institute.
Mr, Dixon will leave for the conference tonight.
"The very latest discoveries lu the
use of coal, now one of the groat economic problems before the world."
Mr. McKenzle said. "We are confident therefore, that Mr. Dixon will be
able to bring back with him Information of the greatest value to this province and to the government in its
efforts to promote the use of our coal
resources in preference to imported
oil, Facts which could not be ascertained without extensive experimentation, which we can not afford, will be
assembled at the meeting, we understand."
Mr. McKenzte's Instructions to Mr.
Dixon are along the lines of the policy which he laid down when lie took
over the mines portfolio. In his efforts to Increase the use of U. C. Coal,
he is arranging to Install the latest
coal-burning equipment In public
buildings where thla is practicable
and to remodel some existing plants
to demonstrate the economic value of

Victoria. B.C., Nov. 13.—With the
parliamentary session, now less than
two months away, and Christmas holiday interferences necessarily to bo
allowed for. it would appear to an
outsider fully time thnt Premier Tolmie and his ministers should decisively refuse themselves to the multitude
of their interviewers and begin intensive study and more than ordtnarl-
ity thorough preparation of the sessional programme,
At this coming session and by its
works und their displayed familiarity
during its progress with the country's
business, Hon Tolmie and his associates will In- judged more critically
and upon ampler evidence than was
before the Grand Jury of the electorate   last   July.
They cannot afford to perpetuate
the mistakes for which, as the Opposition, they took to task the Govern-
ment they have now replaced. They
must be ready, as promised, with COM-
I tructlve legislation. Their speech
from the Throne must disclose the
outstanding features of un important
sessional program. That program
must be clean-cut, pratclcal, and progressive, , And the Ministers mu.-t
have so acquainted themselves with
the problems of their several departments at to expound them clearly and
These factors of necessity recognized aud disclosed Government  policy

Armistice Day
At Cumberland
Impressive Ceremonies Held at

There was a large attendance at

The Rev. J, R. Hewitt delivered n
very touching address, taken from
the 7th chapter of the book of Revelations,  verse  9,
"ll hardly seems possible," said the
Reverend gentleman, "that ten years
have passed since the Armistice. Iu
Frunce, Belgium and In fact every
place where Canadian soldiers had
been engaged, monuments had been
erected to tbe memory of Canadian
troops. In almost every community
In the Dominion, memorials, such as
the one in Cumberland keep alive tho
memory of those bitter years." He
spoke of the present, condition of
France and Belgium, where only a
few short years ago, all wus devastated, crops now grow and poppies
"In observance of Armistice Day."
said Mr. Hewitt, "we should not only
remember those who never did return, but also those who have returned, broken in body aud mind. It is
so seasy In forget aud we have done
little enough for them. Let us never
rorget the children of those who are
maimed ami broken, and the orphans
of those who did not return but. strfvo
and give them the chance in life they
might have had." Cnncluding the
speaker said, "the war has knit close
the ties between tbe dominions and
tlie motherland and cemented the
friendship of France and Britain. May
Canada use her influence as a nation
fur world pence."

much heart-burning on the part of conflicting interests is before the tariff commission just now, in
the matter of the duty on bituminous coal coming Into
Canada. To help the miners of Nova Scotia, who have
nl very tragic experiences of late years, tho Canadian
government maintains a duty or fifty per cent, per ton
un bituminous coal, and recently has stiffened this duty
to apply to slack as well as lhe higher gratle of coal; but
ibis attention on the part of Canada has been met by an
addition to the United Staes tariff law. Although coal Is
on tin- free list for admission to that counry. an exception
i- made In thai if any country imposes a duty on coal,
"an equal duty shall be imposed such article coming Into
tho United States from such country." This is part of
the Pordney tariff, enacted In 1923; and the effect upon
British Columbia coal shipments to the United States has
beeen to reduce them from 1,419,786 tons in 1922. with a
value of $8,252,955, to 404,134 tons in 1926, with a value
of $1,950,992. No wonder that British Columbia has been
taking official notice of the conditions so brought about,
What tlie late provincial government did In the matter
does not appear from the published record of the tarilf
commission, which notes simply that Mr. A, C. Boyce. K.C.,
has been instructed to appear on behalf of the present
Attorney-General; bul at the date when the hearing of
his case opened on the 27th September Mr. Boyce had not
received full instructions. The British Columbia case
therefore was presented by the Crow's Nest coal company
and by the representative of the miners of Fernie. in the
Crow's Nest district, who mentioned Incidentally that their
represenatlons had been before tlie tariff commission in
1926, and frequently pressed since then seemingly without
receiving any effective attention. The miners of Vancouver Island nre also injuriously affected by the tax upon
entry to their former chief market, in the United States,
The Crow's Nest Company says In their presentation:
The Crow's Nest District has not the advantage or being
on lhe sea but it is served by two lines of railway, tho
Canadian Pacific and the Great Northern, both entering
the United States.
Southeastern British Columbia, and southwestern Alberta are at present sparsely settled so that we have little
or no market in our Immediate vicinity in Canada. Consequently, in order to reach customers in this country we are
compelled to ship hundreds of miles hy rail. There is.
however,   south   of  tbe   international   boundary,   a   fairly-
large and increasing population, which we can reach by |
rail on a reasonably short haul. The combined population
of Washington. Oregon, Idaho aud Montana Is, as a matter
of fact, nearly four millions al the present time.
Prior to September 1922, when the United States Act
known as the Pordney Tariff came into force. Canada had
for many years Imposed a duty on bituminous coal, while
our coal for some years had been admitted free into the'
United States. Congress, however, in the Fonlney Act
put the onus on Canada of deciding what the turiff on coal I
should be between the two countries.
There nre certain rebates or drawbacks given by Canada j
which we will refer to later, hut, we wish to point out here i
that there Is no provision for similar rebates or drawbacks in the United States Tariff. Thc result is that there
is a duty on all Canadian bituminous coal and slack going j
into the United States of 50 cents a ton.
This duty considered in connection with the element nf
freight rates, necessarily crieunwribes the area in the
United Stales in which we can do business, as 5(1 cents
will carry a ton of i oni many miles, particularly at the
end of a long haul.
Tin- wonder i*. noi 'hat we should have done so little
business, but that wo should have been able to do any
business at all in ibe United Stales since the Fordney Act
cams into force.
The representation of the Fernie miners. Mr. Enoch
Baddeley, filed their petition showing that the number of
men employed by the Crows Nest company has declined
from 20011 to Mon, and that even with this reduced number
of mon they have had to accept a reduction of wages from
$6.50 to ?■! a day.and have been working only half time.
The '.niners ask not only for tho removal of the duty, but
also for the abolition of sales tax on coal, and for the
admission duty free of machinery and other supplies essential to the production of coal. They also refer to the
assistance being given to mining in Alberta in the shape
of specially low freight rales tn Ontario and urge that this
form of relief should be extended to British Columbia. The
bearing of ihe case has been adjourned by the commission
ton date to be fixed, Them Is time to get a report and
recommendation to parliament in time for action at the
next session; but in a case of this difficulty it Is not to be
expected  that  the government   will  hasten  action.

of the board of the B.C. Telephone

under way for the formation of a separate company to enter the dalio-

"Under Its charter the British Columbia Telephone Company has in
power to go into the radiotelephone
business," explained Mr. Halse In a
statement. "It has become obvious
to the executive of the company, however, that the radiotelephone offers
the only practical method of giving
service to many outlying points, and
consequently we propose to form
a separate company to carry out this
work, The name of the new company
will be the Provincial Telephone Company, and a charter will be sought
nt the next session of the Provincial
Legislature. The necessary advertisements to comply with the legal requirements are now being published.

The Public Health Nurse
During the past few years, a great ]
deal haa been learned concerning the I
prevention   ot   disease  and   the  tm- i
provement ot health.   Today we have ,
a fund  ot knowledge  which, if we j
were to use it, would result In less I
sickness,   fewer   deaths   and   better j
health, thereby Increasing the well-1
being ot mankind.   The problem that
faces public health workers la, first
of all, to see that this knowledge is
imparted to every individual, and then
that it is put into every-day practice.
The moat successful method ot carrying the health message to the In- I Jjj^'ta
dividual is through the Public Hcaltn
Nurse. She might well be called the
Health Teacher of the community, because that Is what she is. By word
ot mouth she imparts health knowledge; by demonstration she show*
how to put such knowledge into practice; by encouragement she helps
through difficult times tha troqulre
perserverance; by planning with the
mother, she aids tn securing propor
food for the family.
Because her work is done mostly
with Individuals, It is not seen bv
the masses. Because It Is not seen.
because It does not advertise Itself,
there Is not the general appreciation
of lt that there should be. It Is not
known, as it deserves to be, that the
education of mothers as to the car,'
of their babies, by public health nurses. Is the greatest factor tn the reduction of infant deaths. Mothers do
not know by Instinct and the woman
who knows all about babies because
"she hurled six" do not make good
teachers. The Public Health Nurs.;
Is trained; she has modern knowledge
to impart.
The citizen who desires to have the
babies In his community protcctel
from disease and their health promoted, should see that there Is a sufficient
number of Public Health Nurses ti
serve the continuity in which he lives.
| Disinfection
| So many enquiries have oeen made
! concerning the disinfection of a room
{ or house after u case of communicable
: disease has occurred, that the matter
; is chosen for ttie subject of this art-
1 Icle.
] The objective ot disinfection is to
| destroy the germs which cause dis-
] ease. Disease germs grow only inside the human or animal body. They
leave the body of ttie sick in th. discharges and secretions of the body.
Once outside of lite body, the germs
die off—most oftbeul very quickly.
Drying and sunlight arenalure's methods of destroying these enemies. Dark
damp corners delay nature's action.
Concurrent disinfection is the term
used to mean the disinfection that i
carried on during a disease. It aims
by prompt disinfection of the body
discharges and secretions .to destroy
the disease germs they contain before
iy chance of their coining in
contact with some well person. The
eating utensils are disinfected to destroy the germs in the saliva that is
left on cups, spoons, etc.. by the diseased person. Concurrent dlslnfet ■
tion is most Important and must tie
thoroughly carried out until the pa
tlent has recovered.
Terminal disinfection ts tho term
used to mean the disinfection after
recovery of thc patient. If concurrent Disinfection has been properly
observed, there Is no need of Terminal
Disinfection, because all the secretions wtil have been looked after. This
is tiie point which needs to be clearly
understood; proper care (luting tho
disease prevents its spread , To try
and kill off a f ewgerms that may hare
survived in a room, after the recovery
ofa patient, is a matter of practically
no importance compared with the
need for destruction of the millions
of germs given off during the course
of the disease.
Terminal Disinfection has been discontinued in many cities, and all attention given to Concurrent Disinfection.

ChrUtmai   festival.
Imagine Christmas in England in 1328, MO years ago. The dawn af
the Reformation was all but breaking, but the Church still held plac*
of power in state as in religion, and had been for centuries the fount
of all learning. A primitive age—rough and relentless, and its people
were primitive to a degree hardly conceivable in this age. Rough, hard
living was lightened by rou.^h hard play and such church festivals aa
Christmas were celebrated in carousing and high revels by. those as
could command the means for such employment. Religious teaching
came to the mass of the people only by word of mouth, and as a means
of making the New Testament stories living and understandable, incidents of the Bible story were presented in simple plays as primitive
as the understandings of their audiences. They were called Mystery
Plays and one of the first of them, and, therefore, perhaps, the first
of all plays to he performed in England was the story of the adoration
of the shepherds and the Magi, written by Randall Higden, a monk of
Chester Abbey and first performed at Christmas in the year 1328, just
six hundred years ago.
From thai day to this is a long time, but there has been a revival
of interest in the beautiful things of mediaeval days, and a few years
ago the Chester Mysteries were brought to Canada and presented for
the first time in America at Hart House Theatre, Toronto University.
There they met with instantaneous success, and for several Christmases
were a feature of Toronto's holiday celebration. Later they were presented as part of a Christmas service in the chancel of the church o!
St. Mary Magdalene, Toronto, It will next be seen at Victoria, B.C.,
as part of the old English Christmas celebration that is being arranged
to take place at the Empress Hotel thert? this year
* It will be the central feature of a notable revival of the Christmas
customs of England dating from the middle ages down to the time of
Dickens and Mr. Pickwick. In the costumes of that periods, singers,
actors and musicians will, between Christmas and Twelfth Night lead
the revels and the entire celebration will wind up with a costume ball.
Victoria is already famous a? a winter resort. Its mild, pleasant weather
permitting golf and motoring practically every day and its wonderful
salt-water swimming baths have made the most English city in North
America an ideal place in which to spend the winter, and with the programme of Christmas revels it is likely that the number of visitors to
that city from the prairies and from some of the western states will be
unusually large.

In Canada, the Canadian Forestry
Association would advocate that in
connection with forest plantations,
there should he planted some spruce
and balsam for Christmas trees. When
they reach the proper size the owner
can cut them out and market them
and still leave the timber iree to mature for a timber crop. This source
of supply would probably be sufficient
to BUpply the home demand For export trade plantations of spruce and
balsam should prove a profitable bnsi-,
ness. Two thousand Christmas trees
could be grown on one acre. Thus
on a ten year rotation, ten square
mllos would supply one and one-quart-1
er nillloln trees for all time; planting
cost or less than one per cent per tree.
Here Ih an opportunity for enterprth- j
ing community, townships or Individuals to utilize some abandoned farms |
to good purpose. This year In New
Brunswick alone there is a demand
for three million Christmas trees.
For the present, however, certain
rules of conduct should be observed.
To cut the top off a perfectly good
timber tree and leave tho body to nt i vate  properly   is   plain   theft  and   a
In the bush is a criminal waste and question of public morals that should
unworthy of a self respecting cltizen.| not be tolerated by any community

Cannot Tell The Truth
A preacher once said: "Edditors
dure not tell the truth. If they did
they could not live, and newspapers
would be a failure." The editor replied: "You're right; Ibe minister who
will at all times tell the truth about
his members, dead or alive, will never
occupy the same pulpit more than one
Sunday, and will find it necessary to
leave town in a hurry. The press and
pulpit go hand in hand with whitewash brush and kind words magnify
ing little virtues into big ones. Tbe
pulpit and the press are a saint-making partnership." Tbe minister went
away looking very thougtful while
the editor turned to his work telling
of the Insurmountable beauty o£ tli
bride, who in reality was as liomelj
as a hedge fence.

the Ground, Causing Inter-
nal Injuries
A near-fatal accident occurred on
the Cumberland road on Thursday |
evening when Mr. Len Roberts was i
crushed underneath a car. Len had
been up to Cumberland with Constable
W. V. Fenton. In leaving Cumberland
they had trouble in getting their car
started so sent for Mr. I. Haslam, o?
the Central Repair Shop. Mr. Haslam
went up, got Mr. Fenton's car started
and  asked  Roberts  to drive  his car
b ek    Constable Fenton and Mr. Has-
p.m r ached Courtenay first and after
v litinr; for about fifteen minutes for
Len, decided to go back and see if any-
l ling had happened to him.  They met
him walking on the road; he having
had a blow-out and being unfamiliar
..;!i the ear. had left ii lo come to
town    for    help.      They  went  back.'
changed tires    and    started back for
Courtenay., Fenton   this  time  riding j
with  Roberts.    Haslam    was    driving
b lead, ' i'h Roberts following closely.;
About opposite Mr. O. Pidcock's house
Haslam -struck a bump, said to have,
been caused by  the    heavy    logging'
trucks, which slewed his car over to i
the.left.    To avoid hitting the other;
car. Roberts applied the brakes which;
resulted  in  the  car skidding  around
and overturning on the left side.   Rob-
crts was thrown part way through the
door and as the car. a Dodge coupe,
overturned    he    was    pinned to the'
ground.   Constable Fenton then turned off the ignition, kicked out the back
window, scrambled out. got a jack from,
the rear of the car and with the assistance  of  Mr.   Haslam.    who    had
stopped  his    car.    extricated Roberts
from his terrible predicament.
On being taken to the hospital it;
was found that Roberts had sustained
l.vo broken ribs besides other internal
injuries of a very serious nature and
ir looked as though he might be fatally
injured. However, at noon Monday, he
took r. turn for the better and unless
.line further complications set in is'
now on a fair way to recovery.
