Newly   Organised   Courtenay   Team
Make Creditable Debut
Courtenay soeeer eleven made
their bow to a local crowd on Sunday
last and had to suffer defeat in the
second half by a score of four (coals
to two. The visitor.1* made a very
ceridtable showing against their more
experienced rivals, the Cumberland
Eagles, who fielded a slightly different line up from the team playing the
week before at Nanaimo. A trial
was given to Bradley at outside left
and W. Stant at left back. Scotty
Hunter came back into the team and
Howay was moved to outside right.
Courtenay players in the first half
kept the locals fighting all thc way
and at one stage of the half were
slightly better than the homesters.
With a little more experiece and
playing together a few times, the
Goody ears will be worthy opponents
of the fast stepping Kagles. The
score at half time was 2-2 which was
a fair indication of the play.
In the second half the Eagles did
most of the pressing, the visitors tiring very fast. During a heavy bombardment of the Courtenay goal,
John Strachan tried to edge the ball
out with his arm, but referee Thoburn was right on the job and awarded the Eagles a spot kick. Herb. Gibson was entrusted wth the job and
with a hard drive gave his team the
lead. Grier in goal for Courtenay,
who played a magnificent game all
through, partially stopping the penalty, but could not manage to clear
before it went over the line. The
homesters were dangerous idl the
way through the second half but poor
finishing in front of goal spoiled
many good chanees. The Eagles forward line, however, was somewhat
disorganized in this half through
MacFarlane being injured and taking
the outside right position. The half
back line was good with the defence
being sound, Stant being the weaker
of the two backs. He is thc right
build for a back and will undoubtedly
play much better as the season advance*. Bradley at outside left lost
a good many chaces of centreing being prone to hang on too long.
Por the visitors, Roy Grier in goal
was good. He has the makings of
a real first class goalie. The backs
also were fairly good and Quinn
would most likely have played much
better with football boots on instead
of a pair of low down shoes. The
pick of the visitors was undoubtedly
Searle. This youth played a cool
heady game and reminds one of the
style of "Wally" Brake, the old Cumberland United half. The forwards
lacked combination, but with a few
more games together this shortage
will probably be overcome. The first
meeting of these two teams in the
new league will be eagerly looked
forward to by the fans.
The Cumberland forwards were a
distinct contrast to their opponents
and were combining very nicely until
the accident to MacFarlane. Herb.
Gibson scored two of his teams goals
and justified his inclusion in the
team.
All   Municipalities   Stating   Needs   to
Government
Nearly every municipality on the
Island is stating their needs to the
government in an effort to relieve
unemployment and to take advantage
of the offer of the Government,
whereby work needed to be done
within the municipality can be undertaken at a cost to the municipality of 50 cents on the dollar. Cumberland's unemployed are being neglected, the city council going on
record as not needing any work done.
Other centres are taking advantage
of the scheme in no uncertain manner. The Nanaimo city council will
apply under the Government Relief
Act scheme to start work amounting
to $110,000. This includes expenditures of $60,000 each on the Fair-
view sewerage system and the proposed subway for Comox Road railway crossing and $10,000 for improvements to the South Forks water?
j works road.
North Cowichan municipality will
engage a road foreman, if possible
with engineer's qualifications, to supervise an extensive programme of
road betterments to be undertaken
forthwith. The council has prepared
a list of works to be carried out as
unemployment relief with Federal
and Provincial assistance and has
submitted proposals to the Provincial
Government, Twenty-five residents
within the municipality have registered as unemployed or only partially employed.
The Port Alberni City Council this
week decided to approach the government in connection with unemployment and ask for a reasonable
grant towards the cost of relief
works. Lists of unemployed and
necessary work were submitted by
the unemployment committee.
These municipalities do not think
it is a ease of "passing the buck,"
as our own Council did at the last
meeting. It is getting to be a serious
situation here in Cumberland to see
the number of men, a lot of them
young men it is true, walking the
streets with no work in sight and a
city council that is blind to the needs.
Surely there is some work which the
city could undertake to relieve the
situation, especially when the Federal and Provincial governments will
stand half of the cost between them.
SCHEDULE FOR CRIB
LEAGUE IS DRAWN UP
The schedule for the Cumberland
and district cribbage league, drawn
up by Messrs. T. I). Robortson and
T. Carney was submitted to the executive of the league this week and
approved by that body. The schedule is printed on page two of this issue and members of the various
teams would do well to cut the fix-
, ture list qut for future reference.
That interest will be keen goes without saying and the Maynard trophy.
now in the hands of the Veterans,
will probably change hands.
The investment in the commercially operated miniature golf course has
assumed a tremendous sum. While
the Canadian figures are not available, a United States department of
Commerce report places the number
of courses in that country at 25,000
and their combined value at about
$126,000,000. Miniature golf has
swept the country like wildfire and
whilst a great many of the promoters
are looking for suitable indoor sites.
many strange places in both urban
and rural British Columbia are being used. For the outdoor miniature
courses it may be said that they have
made many a vacant lot, formerly
a repository for rubbish and what
not into picturesque as well as ingenious landscapes. The game has
provided a new field for insurance
companies and one company has announced a special policy covering
the peculiar needs created. It protects the operators from the hazards
of floods, fire, lightning, wind and
earthquake.
Rehabilitation
In Coal Fields
To Be Studied
Dominion   Fuel   Board   Technician
Will Meet B.C. Producer!
British Columbia efforts to rehabilitate its coal industry have drawn
the attention of the Dominion Fuel
Board, which is supplementing the
work of the Federal Department of
Mines by investigation into producing and marketing of coal in the
various provinces, it was stated by
F. G. Neate, technician for the board
who wns in the city yesterday and
called on the Provincial Department
of Mines.
Attention to the needs of thc British Columbia collieries was drawn by
the action of Hon. W. A. McKenzie,
Minister of Mines, who brought about
the recent conference of coal producers, and also by thc institution,
as a result of that conference, of a
permanent coal research committee,
Mr. Neate intimated.
Ah a result of the action taken
here, the Dominion Fuel Board hns
been apprised of the situation in this
province, and is inquiring further into what may be done to assist coal
production and marketing in this
province.
To Meet Producers
Mr. Neate met Mr. McKenzie; Robert Dunn, the deputy minister, and
J. D. Galloway, provincial mineralogist, yesterday, and will return to
the city on Monday, after a flying
visit to the prairie points. On his return he hopes to get in touch with
thc coat operators, and this will be
arranged.
As nn instance of what i.s being
done by the Federal department
through the medium of the Dominion
Fuel Board and in other ways, Mr.
Neate cited assistance given in the
form of subventions to collieries to
aid in the shipment of Western fuel
to markets in neighboring provinces.
These subventions, in some instances,
amounted to aboul $1.12 a ton, and
$20,000 under this plan has been
paid to Western producers in the last
few months.
British Columbia efforts to restore
markets for its soft fuels had drawn
favorable regard in Federal circles,
and further investigation of the situation will most likely follow, Mr.
Neate indicated.     —Daily Colonist.

IMPORT OF RUSSIAN
COAL IS TO CEASE
ONLY   CARGOES   NOW   AFLOAT
WILL BE ALLOWED
Ottawa, Ont., Oct. 15.—Canadian
importers of Russion coal have given
to the Government an undertaking
that the importation of this coal,
with the exception of cargoes now
afloat, will cease for the Fall and
Winter months. Announcement to
this effect was made by Sir George
Perley, acting Prime Minister, this
week.
In a brief statement banded out
at the conclusion of a lengthy Cabinet meeting, Sir George announced
that if, for any reason, the undertaking given by importers is not fulfilled, action will be taken by the
Government under the dumping
clause of the Customs Act to prevent any further unloadings.
Statement given out by Sir George
Perley follows:
The government having fully considered the desirability and necessity
of stopping the importation of Russian eoal, so notified the importers
thnt only cargoes now afloat will be
brought in. There are only seven
boats now on the way and as they
are chartered to load cargoes of
grain at Montreal for Europe, it
would seem undesirable to enforce
the diversion of them elsewhere,
Steps have been taken to ensure that
no more coai from Russia will be
shipped this Fall or Winter and
should the undertaking given be for
any reason not fulfilled action will
be taken by the Government under
the dumping clause of the Customs
Act to prevent any further unloading.
Ladies of the W. A. of Holy Trinity
church conducted a successful home
cooking sale on Saturday in the Davis
block, Dunsmuir Avenue. Tlie lovely
weather of the week-end brought out
many buyers and no doubt did its part
ln adding to the success of the sale.
DISTRICT COVERED
WITH SNOW BLANKET
Chilly winds of the early part of
the week gave weight to the forecasts that snow would blanket the
district before the end of the week.
Snow commenced to fall on Wednesday noon and shattered all the hopes
of pheasant hunters for a few days
hunting. Snow fell steadily all afternoon and by evening between
three and four inches lay on the
ground. A strong wind got up in
the early part of the evening nnd
this, combined with the heavy snow
broke down many branches from
trees.
The pheasant hunters were sorely
disappointed as reports coming from
them of the first days hunting were
not very encouraging. The severe
past Winter is given as the main reason why birds are so scarce. Spoilsmen declare that many birds died
during the cold spell and that the
usual hatch was below normal. Again
many local hunters declare there are
far too many small calibre rifles used
in the district, most of them being
possessed by young boys who have no
regard for open or closed season.
The snow which is covering the
[district will, no doubt be all gone in
I the couse of a few days as at the
; present time it shows signs of rain.

To Develop
Canada Por
Canadians
Ottawa, Oct. 16; (Special to the
Islander).—When Parliament convenes early in the new year members
will he confronted with a mass of
work ihat may easily keep them in
the capital until midsummer.
It will centre chiefly about a complete revision of the Canadian Customs tariff. In the course of his
campaign Mr. Bennett promised such
revision and during the emergency
session of the House last month he
undertook that it would be proceeded with at the regular session.
In the past, almost any tinkering
with the tariff' has been occasion for
long nnd acrimonious conflict over
fiscal theories. Even single items
would be debated for days, The
whole tariff contains 1188 items and
unless a tixed period is set for discussion argument may well extend
into next fall; for there is the most
marked diversion of opinion upon
economic   policies.
It Is true that the Dunning budget
brought the older parties closer together on some phases of protective
doctrine, but it is equally true that
in opposition the liberal party will
attack every tariff increase in an endeavour to make it appear as an infringement of justice to the eonsum-
The Conservative party under Mr.
Bennett has made the unique pledge
to the public that no consumer exploitation will be permitted under
turiff concessions. Machinery to carry out that promise is being created
and the closest check both upon
wholesale and retail prices will be
maintained. By the time parliament
meets there will be concrete evidence
as to whether the changes made last
month have created employment or
increased prices. In fact many manufacturers have promised that increased production would lower cost
and selling prices. That promise will
also be checked.
How weighty a problem a general
tariff revision may prove is shown
by the fact thut the revision Mr.
Bennett put-through during the emergency session was the broadest
since the first application of the National Policy under Sir John A. Macdonald in 1879. Yet Mr. Bennett's
preliminary revision affected only
about 130 items, or approximately
one-tenth of the whole list. It dealt
only with industries susceptible of
immediate rejuvenation to create
employment, and only with such of
those ns could be properly considered in the very short space of time
which elapsed between Mr. Bennett's
taking over of office and the meeting
of Parlaiment.
*    *    *
Just what the details of the revision will be will not become public
Until tabled in the House. It is Mr.
Bennett's conviction that the tariff
can be operated to develop Canada
for Canadians, without exploitation
being successfully attempted by protected industries. Consequently, it
is a fair assumption that the major
revision will be upward.
The Minister of National Revenue,
Hon. E. B. Ryekman, is now touring
Canada making a first hand inspection of plants and equipment of industries. It is not proposed that protection will be extended except where
industries are willing to modernize
their plants and make production
possible at reasonable cost and it is
to study actual conditions that Mr,
Ryekman—one of Cunada's leading
industrialists—Is making his trip.
Revision will also be affected materially by the immediate success or
fuilure of the economic conference
of Empire which Mr. Bennett is now
attending. In return for favored
treatment for Canadian agricultural
products in the British market he is
ready to make important concessions
for manufactured goods from Britain
through our turiff, on items which
will not prove injurious to indigenous,
Canadian industry. The Empire con-1
fcrenca has not progressed to thu |
point where an opinion is sound as.
to the success of his efforts, though
thc favorable impression upon the i
Hritish voter appears to be wide-
spread. r

Vancouver, when Dolenia Catherine
eldest daughter of the late Mr. and
Mrs. T. Wilson became the bride of
Gordon Lewis, second son of the late
Mr. T. L. and Mrs. Beavan of Edmonds.
The bride looked radiant as she
entered the church on the arm of
her brother-in-law, Mr. M. B. Stewart, of Cumberland, who gave her in
marriage. Her gown was of pale
mauve and yellow silk moire, ankle
length, with frills nf mauve georgette
with tight fitting bodice. With this
she wore a large picture hat of
mauve with velvet bows and carried
a beautiful bouquet of pale shaded
carnations with maiden-hair fern.
Miss J. E. Robertson, of Cumberland, bridesmaid, looked very charming in an ankle length yellow taffeta
dress with deep rows of silver lace
and picture hat to match. Like the
bride her bouquet was of carnations
and maiden-hair fern.
The ceremony was performed by

EDWARD W. BICKI.E
WANTED—A .lumping Off Place for Dead Beats
RECENTLY in a small town on the Island the
sheriff was offering thc goods and accounts
of a merchant tor what he could get. The
accounts amounted to $1600 and were sold for
less than $9.00. Why'.' Because they belong to
that class of people who never pay an honest debt
nor expect to pay one if they can help it. The
prime cause of this state of things is the credit
system. As the cancer is to humanity so is th"
credit system to the business world. Politicians
are quarreling about protection and free trade,
but if the system of pay as you go could be impressed upon the people of this country, it would
be of vastly greater benefit than either. The
credit system caters to the morbid desire of a
certain class of people who live beyond their
moans. It gives ihem a chance to get everything
they want; not what they really want but what
they think they want. Then there is a class of
people who lack moral stamina. They never pay
a book account, but may pay cash when they can't
get credit. These human parasites are the cause
of more real suffering than anything else under
our government. The economy of nature, perfect
as it is, lacks one thing—a jumping off place for
dead beats.
(io along the streets of our city and you can
point out the hoys. who. in the next decade, will
be the grumblers and growlers, Vou will see them
idly hanging around and squirting tobacco juice.
In ten or twenty years from now they will be
doing the same thing and declaring Ihe world has
been made all wrong. Never having made an
effort to do anything for themselves they do not
like those who have; having nothing themselves,
they look upon every man who has gained property or high standing or high professional reputation through unceasing toil and economy of time
and means, as having wronged them in some
way. and as an enemy to be denounced in season
and out of season.
An eminent Statistician estimates that during
the course of an ordinary life, the average man
will eat seven four-horse loads of food more tha.l
is good for him. Not so with an editor; we just
figured it out that since we have been at this
nerve-racking business we have eaten two four-
horse wagon loads less than we should have eaten.
Verily, the life of a country editor is hard. Show
us one country editor who looks like a prosperous
retired politician and we will show you one hundred who look like the "before taking medicine"
advertisement one usually sees in the ads. of
certain patent medicines.

wick, who served his state for six
years in the Upper House of Con- ■
gress, and who was later elected Gov- ■
ernor of Georgia, said: ;
"I had lost most of my old-time
energy and. both mental and physical
fatigue came more quickly than
formerly. Constipation especially
had troubled me for the past ten
years and 1 had become accustomed
'.o dosing myself with some physic
.ir laxative every few days. My appetite was not keen and my meal.-
did not seem to agree with me as
they should. Sometime I would feel
positively wretched for days nt a
time. Saigon was highly recommended to me and I decided to try
it.
"The medicine helped me from the
very first, ll gave me n splendid appetite. I don't know when I have
Mijoyed my meals more than I do
now. I eat with more relish and experience n<> ill or uncomfortable
after-effects whatever. Naturally my

Question.-, concerning Health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association, 184. College St.. Toronto, will be answered personally
by correspondence.
SINUS TROUBLE
It is not unusual to hear that
someone has sinus trouble. Sinus
trouble means that there is infection, and, as we know, infection in
any part of the body is serious. The
infection is the result of the activity
of living germs, and if it is allowed
to continue, it may result in a chronic poisoning of the body.
The nasal sinuses are the cavities
in the bones of the face, which cav
ities nre connected with the nose by
narrow openings, and the lining membranes of the nose and the sinuses
are continuous.
There is one sinus under the cheek
bone, another above the eye, others
in the bones behind the nose. Some
of these sinuses are close to the
brain cavity, and infection close to
the vital centres is the result of sinusitis in such parts.
Sinus trouble occurs when infection spreads from the nose along the
lining membrane through the narrow
openings into the sinus. Swelling
results from the infection, and this
swelling may be, and often is sufficient to block the opening, nnd so

| the infection is scaled in the sinus.
On account of the practical danger
| of the spread of infection from the
i nose to a sinus, it is evident that
; grave trouble may be prevented by
1 taking care of nasal infection—tho
I common cold.
The neglected cold leads to u great
, deal of trouble and misery. The cold
I itself is one of the greatest nuisances
| from which we suffer, and, besides,
j it is most mischevous in its effects
To neglect a cold is always to invite
i trouble. If you want to avoid trouble
1 avoid a cold and if you are not sue-
' cessful in avoiding the cold, give it
1 early attention.
| In the late stages of a cold, if the
J teeth begin to ache with a feeling
of pressure on the back upper teeth,
i it suggests that the antrum or sinus
I in the cheek bone is involed. The
pain may not he constant; it may
occur during part of the day, growing worse and then easing off.
i Infection of the sinusal) may foi-
{low colds, influenza, pneumonia,
| measles, scarlet fever, or indeed, any
I infection of the upper respiratory
' tract. It is a condition which should
| be brought under treatment at once.
1 Not only is it that the acute stage
j requires proper care, but it is of the
I utmost importance to secure such
i care in order to prevent, if possible
! a chronic infection of the sinus.

, blown over towards Denman Island
The boot was started off again, and
{next they found themselves bain,
I blown to Point Holmes, the lashings

Annual   Clinical   Conference   of   thc
American College of
Surgeons   ,.
Philadelphia, October 13.~The
old-fashioned hospital was frankly a
place to die in. The modern hospital is the best possible place to get
well in.
This metamorphosis from an institution which was merely a refuge
for derelicts to one which medical
authorities state to be the best equipped single agency for care of the sick
! was emphasized today in the open-
1 ing session of the annual clinical
I congress of the American College of
; Surgeons; In conjunction with the
report of hospital progress Dr. Franklin H, Martin, director general of
'. the national surgeons' organization,
i announced a list of 206'i hospitals in
' tin United States and Canada which
have been inspected and approved by
■■ the college as being properly equip-
! ped and conducted to care for the
I sick.
From a situation in which only S9
! hospitals of these two nations were
able to attain the standard established by the American College of Surgeons tn the present status in which
nearly three-fourths of the institutions now meet with approval is the
repressive record of hospital advancement during the last 13 years,
the report shows,

■ ratio of total deaths among hospitals
surveyed is hut 4 per i00 patients,
less than half that of IS years ago
I when the first survey of hospitals
j was made, Dr. MacEachern said.
On un Average, the patient in the
standardized hospital now gets well
in 10 to 12 days as contrasted with
! 25 a decade ago. This means not
I only a saving in hospital expenses to
the average patient but also permits
: him to return to his regular occupation much sooner.
Fewer, post-operative deaths, improved treatment of fractures, cancer, goitre, metabolism disorders, and
other diseases are indications of the
advance of scientific medicine
through better hospitals, better doctors, better nurses, and other groups
of personnel engaged in thc work, it
was shown.
Hospitals  Inspected Annually
Dr. Martin pictured the hospital
betterment movement as a dramatic
fight against odds. "The standardized hospitals, now 2063, with 388,-
279 beds, caring for approximately
9,000,000 patients annually, are
strong fortresses," he said, "in which
the great army of health—doctors,
nurses, and their co-workers—can
successfully battle disease. Deaths
from accidents, heart and kidney diseases, cancer, tuberculosis, and high
blood pressure can be materially reduced by this great corps of workers
in a standardized hospital with the
intelligent cooperation of the public,
What could be of more concern to
the people of the United States and
Canada than good health? On this
depend happiness and prosperity and
all good things of this world."
The work of malting hospitals safe
for the public has been carried on
for 13 years by thc American College
of Surgeons through continuous inspection and survey of all hospitals
of 25 beds or more in which acutely
ill or injured patients are treated.
This is done at no expense to the
hospital. To obtain approval by the
American College of Surgeons hospitals must comply with requirements relating to virtually every
phase of hospital work. The physicians, tor instance, must not only be
licensed but must also be reputable
graduates of recognized medical
schools. Records of all that transpires to the patient during his hospital stay must be kept. The results
of treatment must be discussed in a
group meeting of the medical staff.
Thc hospital is required to have facilities for x-ray work and laboratory
examinations. AM these and numerous other standards have been estab-!
lished for the protection of the public
List of Approved  Hospitals
A unique feature of the hospital
standardization movement is thut enforcement of the requirements is
voluntary, Yet in spite of this fact
98 per cent of all hospitals of 100
beds or more have met the standards
and 79.3 per cent of all hospitals of
50 or more beds have won approval.
The approved hospitals in this
Province are the following:
Kamloops, Royal Inland Hospital,
130; New Westminster, Royal Columbian Hospital, 212; Tranquille,
Tranquille Sanatorium, 330; Vancouver, Grace Hospital 140, St. Paul's;
Hospital 300, Shaughnessy Hospital
300; Vancouver General Hospital
1188; Victoria, Provincial Royal Jubilee Hospital 200, St. Joseph's Hos-I

The Directors of the Queen Alexandra Solarium are anxious thut no
' possible misunderstanding should
arise   with   reference   to   the   t
charged  for  the  maintenance  c
treatment of a child in the Solarium
at Malahat Bench, Vancouver Island.
I     It  has  always   been   an  absolute
! rule thut no B.C. child, who can receive benefit from treatment, shall
be   refused   admission   because   the
: parents or guardians are  unable to
pay   towards  its  maintenance   . No
child ever hns been, or ever will be,
refused admission on this ground.
The Solarium has practically nu
Endowment Fund and is dependent
in u large measure on the generosity
of the public and the payment? made
by parents.
Under tbe British Columbia Hospital Act it receives a grant for each
child from the Government, and in
the case of children coming from a
Municipality it MAY receive a grant
frotn thnt Municipality. These grants
do not however cover the cost of
daily maintenance.
The cost of maintenance at this
time is two dollars and twenty-five
cents ($2.25)  a day.
In eases where the parents can
afford to pay the full maintenance
cost a charge of Two Dollars ($2.00)
a duy is made; in ull other cases the
parents are asked to write to the
Secretary at 018 Government Street,
Victoria and to state clearly what
sum they can afford to give towards
the cost of maintenance.
This estimate of cost of daily maintenance does not include the cost
of special splints and boots, etc.

Garden /« Open
I 	
. It is no reflection on any other miniature golf courses to say that the onr
I opened to the public Saturday by Joe
Idiens In the Royston pavilion is a
remarkably fine example of this type
of amusement  facility.
Some types of course are designed
for the player who has n few moments to spare and can drop in and
kill a little time with a round of putting. The Royston indoor course is
of the type designed for those who
wish to get up a party and spend a
whole afternoon or evening In a comfortable and Interesting way no matter what the weather.
To describe the course In detail
would be to rob the visitor of much ui
the element of surprise which is a
charm of the winter garden, as the
pavilion is now called. Suffice it to
say that the eighteen holes provide
infinite variety. Several of them call
for some nice driving shots as well as
the usual putts. A fifty foot putt provides fine practice. Attractive bridges
cross real water hazards.
In several of the holes are devices
which tempt the player to take an
easier course only to find that he has
to play back from a false green nt
the cost of an extra shot or two. Some
of the green designs and hazards are
absolutely original. A dog house
complete with a life sized dog is a
novelty on one hole.
The real high spot of the course is
the chimney hole. The chimney nnd
fire place are most attractively constructed, and the greens in connection with this hole are most Interesting. For the rest, the interior of the
pavilion i.s » true winter garden, with
