China has been coming into the
Province for the last six years in
small driblets. The shipment expected yesterday is a new departure, and,
as the Minister of Mines points out in
his telegram to the secretary of thc
Fuel Board, constitutes a formidable
menace to the Island coal trade,
which is already in a poor condition.
It is at least reassuring to know that
the Mines Department is night on the
job, and that Mr. Neill is alive to
the interests and welfare of his coal
mining constituents,
The importation of fifteen hundred
tons of Chinese coal may not be a
very big thing in itself, but it represents a day's work for every miner
in Cumberland, and in any event it
ought to be stopped. During the last
Federal campaign we were promised
protection for the rial mining industry, and we honestly believe that the
Ottawa authorities will take such action as is possible, eliminating any
further shipments from the same
The Cumberland Board of Trade
during the week also registered a
strong protest with the government
on the news being received here that
such a shipment of coal was due.

Protest to Ottawa! A. W. Neill,

Fears  the  Effect  on
The Provincial Government has
thrown its weight behind the coal industry of British Columbia in nn effort to stop the importation of Chinese anthracite coal, reported now on
its way across thc Pacific.
In a statement issued Monday,
Hon. W. A. McKenzie, minister of
mines, made it known that as early
as October 3 he had taken this matte up with the Federal Government
and that he intends to press tt further in conference with Hon. W. A.
Gordon, federal minister of mines,
here shortly.
On October 3, Mr. McKenzie wired
thc Dominion Fuel Board, declaring
that the present importation of 1500
tons of Chinese coal "could only have
the effect of further disrupting an
already seriously shattered market".
The fuel board replied that it was
investigating the whole question,
F. G. Neate, secretary of the board
with Mr. Gordon will be in British
Columbia next week, Mr. McKenzie
suid. "It has been my intention since
first learning of the coming of this
coal to British Columbia to take the
business up in person with Mr. Gordon at the earliest opportunity," Mr.
McKenzie declared. ".This I propose
doing. In the meantime I have telegraphed the Hon. Ryckman, minister
of national revenue.
A. W. Neill, M.P. for this district
also added his protest sending on
November 13th, the two following
telegrams in connection with the
To The Hon. E. B. Ryckman
Minister of National Revenue,
Cargo of Chinese eoal will arrive
Vancouver shortly. Mined under
conditlos of Chinese labor which will
make competition by our white miners here impossible. Will ruin our
Vancouver Island mines and enormously increase the already severe unemployment. Urge you collect special duty under provisions of sec. 43
of Customs Act and sec. 6 of Tariff
Act. A valuation of fourteen dollnrs
a ton for this anthracite would mean
a dumping duty of four dollars a ton
which would probably suffice. Early
publication of your intention to so
act would stop further shipments
which is whnt wc want to prevent.
Hon, E. B, Ryckman,
Minister of Nationnl Revenue,
Dear Mr. Ryckman,
I have information from Vancouver thnt there is now on the water
and will arrive at Vancouver very
shortly, a cargo of anthracite coal
from China, mined of course by Chinese men (and women) at wages
and under conditions which make it
impossible for our miners here to
compete with. It is going to spell
ruin to our Vancouver Island coal
mines, already hardly hit by the
competition of fuel oil.
I submit that this is a condition
peculiarly appropriate for thc operation of sec. 43 of the Customs Act,
which gives you power to fix an arbitrary value on this coal. Thereafter,
a special duty can be levied under
sec. 6 of the Customs Tariff Act as
amended this last session.
Speedy action is required as even
one cargo slipped in free under the
ordinary tariff would much increase
unemployment in the Island eoal
mines, As the representative of a
large number of coal miners I would
be glad to testify in the House that
your prompt use of these provisions
saved the situation, provided you put
the valuation high enough.
You may remember that I voted
with the Government in favour of
these amendments when they were
being passed last session.
tt is just possible that thc Government nt Ottnwa, by means of the
laws passed at the last session of
parliament, can make this shipment
now due an unprofitable one for thc
importers. It is interesting to note
that the Minos Department knows
the importers, and that it has passed
its information on to the Dominion
Fuel Board. It may he taken for
granted that the authorities at  Ot-1 CHRISTMAS MAILS

Mrs. J. Frame of Cumberland was
rather badly shaken up and bruised
on Thursday evening when a car, said
to be driven by S. Nakamura knocked the unfortunate lady down at the
Post Office corner. Mrs. Frame was
proceeding along Dunsmuir nvenue
and crossing from the old Royal
Bank building towards the Japanese
jcwelery store and when about two
feet off the side walk was struck by
the car driven by Nakamura who
came down Dunsmuir avenue, turning at the Post Office corner to proceed up Third street. Mrs. Frame
was tended by Dr. MacNaughton who
ordered her removal to the General
Hospital where she is resting as well
as can be expected. As far as could
be ascertained the unforunate lady
suffered no broken bones but was
badly bruised and shaken.
Nakamura will appear in Police
Court tomorrow afternoon where he
will have to answer to a charge of
driving to the common danger.
Entries for the singles crib tournament at the Athletic club will positively close this Saturday. There are
a large number of entries up to date
and several games have already been
pulled off. Everybody plays everybody and the greatest number of won
games will decide the winner.
The doubles tournament is expected to be finished by Sunday.
Thc regular meeting of the city
council held on Monday night was of
short duration and was presided over
by His Worship the Mayor with Aldermen Parnham, Mumford, Ledingham, Henderson, and Bannerman
A communication was received
from the Electric Light Company in
reply to the council's request for u
statement of receipts and expenditures from August, 1929, up to the
present, stating that the financial
year of the company ended in January and as it would entail considerable expenditure to bring the audi-
to over frrr.fi Vancouver to make an
audit of the books and prepare a
statement for the council, it was
suggested that the council wait until the 15th of January when a statement would be prepared by the auditor.
Due consideration was given to the
comunication and following a little
discussion the city clerk was instructed to write to the Electric Light
Company signifying the council's
willingness to wait until January 15.
A communication wns also received
from J. H. Robertson asking that
something he done at the rear of his
residence to stop the rain from flooding the back verendah and kitchen.
As this is one of the houses built under the soldier housing scheme and
Mr. Robertson being a tenant only,
the chairman of the board of works
was given power to undertake the
necessary repairs.
Bills and accounts to the amount
of $5t'J1.82 were presented and if
found correct ordered to be paid. Reports of committees showed that all
departments were in a satisfactory
condition. On the chairman of the
board of works reporting progress
so far as the relief work was concerned, the Mayor asked Alderman Henderson how he proposed to distribute
the work evenly amongst the unemployed. The Mayor said he had noticed the same men at work last
week .ind this led him to ask just
what system the board of works had
adopt id. He did not want to see
more work go to one person than
another and thought a number of the
single men should be given an opportunity. After an explanation by Alderman Henderson, it was suggested
that all relief work be handed out
ns equitable as possible.
Under the general borrowing bylaw No. 89, authority was granted to
borrow the sum of $4,000 from the
Royal Bank of Canada, the Mayor,
city clerk and finance committee to
sign the necessary papers.
Tenders for auditing of the books
of the city and books of the board of
school trustees were then opened, the
first being from Edgar W. Foreman,
chartered accountant, of Ladysmith,
whose price was $200 for the city
books and $25 for the books of the
school trustees. The only other tender in was from Messrs. Dick' and
Mcintosh offering to do the auditing
of the books for $100 and $50 respectively. Without discussion the
tender was awarded to Messrs. Dick
and Mcintosh.
Basketball Girls'
Whist And Dance
The Girls' Eagle basketball club
held a very successful whist drive and
dance in the Veterans' hall on Saturday last when twenty-one tables of
whist were in play. The winner of
the ladies' first prize was announced
as Mrs. Alex Walker with 150 points.
Mrs. George Richardson and Miss E.
Laing tied for second place with 149
points. On the cut of the cards Mrs.
G. Richardson was declared the winner. The gent's first prize went to
Mrs.' Westfleld (substituting), with
a score of 158 points, second prize
going to Mr. G. Brown with 146
points. After refreshments had been
served by the girls, adjournment was
made to the dance hall upstairs where
a jolly dance was held, terminating
on the stroke of 12. Music for the
dance was supplied by Jimmy Walker and his Sunnyside orchestra.

The usual weekly basketball tilt
between Cumberland and Courtenay
High School teams resulted in the
former winning both games. The
girls winning handily by a score of
36 points to 1. The boys was a little
more even but the final score was
well in Cumberland's favor, reading
20-12. The local girls have now five
games to their credit and the boys,
after losing the first three games
managed to record wins in the laBt
two encounters.
tawa will lose nn time in attending
to this matter. The shipment was
due in Vancouver yesterday but up
to the time of going to press no other
word has been received.
It may be added that the importation to this Provice of small quantities of Oriental coal is not a new
thing. These importations for the

twork and captured the first prize in
■ihe senior men's competition foi
| which the A. R. Wilson cup was
awarded ,the pr.ii-.es in addition being
handsome safety razor sets. This
team also won second place in the
Men's Senior open event, the judges
j having a hard time to decide the
winners so close did the local boys
inine tn winning this contest also.
The team was the youngest entering
the senior events and were the recipients of many congratulations on
their Bplendld achievement.
Some very good work was done by
the hams in all tin* events and the
judges had a very hard task to make
H filial decision. On one occasion they
found il necessary to visit the two
high teams twice before rendering a
decision. A very pleasing feature of
the meet was the entry of a team
from the B. C. Cement Works, at
Bninberton, this being the first occasion in which a team from this dis-
tii'-i has entered, The team was accompanied by the manager of the
works. Mr. H. Anderson, who following the competition thanked the mine
safety association for the reception
tendered to his team.
The prizes were presented to the
successful contestants by Inspector

Following the presenting of prizes
refreshments were served to a number of the visitors, following which
Mr. Anderson of Bambcrton thanked
the association for the geat reception accorded to the Bamberton visitors and extended an invitation to
visit them at Bamberton when everything possible would be done to at
least equal the great reception accorded to himself and colleagues. Inspector Jackson on behalf of the association replied and tendered thanks

THERE Is a habit common among the young
men much more dangerous than it appears
and which may lead to results extremely
disastrous—the habit of borrowing money. It is
;i habit contracted with great ease and unci- standi there is no knowink where it will end . We
were "tapped" twice last week and we honestly
believe we have said good-bye to ten perfectly
good dollars. A lew dollars are burrowed to please
some passing fancy with every intention of returning the loan in a short time. Uut the thoughtlessness which caused the purchase of an article
beyond one's means likewise allows the interval to
elapse without any provision having been made to
meet the obligation. Perhaps half the debt is
ready, but more money is borrowed from another
friend to complete tlle amount, and so it continues
Indefinitely. Soon a number of <l<>bis are contracted ami, however small, they tend tn burden life
and make it unpleasant and almost invariably lead
Io dishonesty. Young men wilh small salaries
should by all means avoid ihr habit. To do 30
will necessitate perhaps many sacrifices, but no
dangers are run in living within one's income.
And. besides, the habit of economy and frugality
learned when the income is small, will bear fruil
in abundance when it is larger. II is a safe rule
in youth at least to "borrow not". After last I
week's double touch we have adopted for oiil'sj
"lend not.' I
THE THING that makes it hard for a person to run a
newspaper is his friends. When » friend thinks
something ought to be kept out of the paper he
does not hesitate to ask it as a personal favor. An
enemy doesn't ask favors. But a friend thinks the
conduct of a newspaper is the personal matter of the
editor, when as) a matter of fact he is largely in the position of a man serving a public trust. A philosophical
old fellow once said: "A newspaper that doesn't
make one mad once in a while isn't worth the
subscription price." To make people mad isn't the chief
province of a newspaper, but if it's going to be one
worthy of the name, it must print the news without fear
or favor. This paper has been threatened with, and indeed has suffered business reprisals, not once but frequently. The things must necessarily be borne In silence
The great reading public which a newspaper serves Is
not interested in the personal difficulties of tho editor or
publisher, though we have known instances where a full
ailing of threats and subsequent reprisals would have
made absorbing reading. But such things must be regarded as part of the game-—to Im suffered perhaps because of mms committed in other directions. And then,
too, it must be remembered that all things, both human
ami divine, are subject to criticism. Even the Bible
does not escape, — Gran brook Courier.
After years of keeping close record, it is agreed that
the cost of running a car and upkeep is not less than 8c
a mile and as high as 14c a mile. Of this cost the gas,
at ■liir a gallon, runs about a cent and a half to the mile,
for thc light cars, and the larger ears from 2H e to 4c
a'mile, Every thousand miles you travel means that it
has cosl ynu $80 to $100. By keeping the wheels going
found you are eating the cake, and may have to go
slmrt for bread if you don't watch out.
You'll never regret keeping   . .

Endorses Sargon
Few men in .America are known to
more people from coast to coast than
William I). Upshaw, former Congressman from the Fifth (Atlanta)
District of Georgia. During his eight
years in Washington he attained national prominence, A well known
national magazine described him as
"the most amazing man in congress."
Obeying a grateful impulse because
of the great physical blessing received through the use of Sargon, Mr.
Upshaw writes that he is simply doing unto others as he would have
them do unto him in making the following voluntary statement:
"My first experience with this remarkable invigorator came in the
-minnier of 1928, when Sargon was
brand new. I wns suffering from
nervous debility and an alarming
physical depletion as tbe result oi
tover-work on the lecture platform,
(and really feared I would not have
I strength enough to get me through
tbe political campaign of July and
l August. Unbelievable as it may seem,
two bottles taken with the Sargon
Pills simply made me over. After
the most hectic speaking campaign
through which I ever passed, I came
out actually feeling far stronger
than when I began.
"Later, rushing away on another
busy speaking tour covering several
States, I did not persevere in thc
daily use of the medicine until my
system was thoroughly cleansed, witli
the result that twice since then I
found myself again suffering from
general debility, constipation and
dizziness, and each time the Sargon
combination has cleared me up and
left me. feeling tip-top,
"Living now in the aftermath of
those refreshing experiences. I am
moved by common gratitude to heartily commend this wholesome and effective medicine to everybody whose
run-down condition calls for complete
