The use of pulverized for general
industrial purposes, including both
land and water communications: the
adoption of Improved spark arresters
on Canadian locomotives, once these
are proved practicable, and a systematic consideration for British Columbia coal wherever its use can he
economically effected, were pointed
to as three means within the power
of British Columbia business nnd
governmental circles for the relief
of the soft coal industry of the province, in n general discussion whicli
took place yesterday afternoon.
While no direct request was made
to Hon. \V. A. McenKzie, who presided at the conference, many delegates pointed to the serious inroads
made .;nto the coal industry by crude
oil imported duty free, and indicated
that Government action to bring the
full wegiht of its power behind tbe
increased use of the home product
would be welcomed. The lightening
of the tax and royalty on coal production was directly urged on the
Government, as was the use of every
means in its power to encourage n
wider use of the natural British Columbia product that supplies a livelihood for large numbers of men and
their dependents on the coal centres
of the province.
Miner*   Hard   Hit
The miners' side of the picture
was given to the conference by
George Pearson, M.P.P., who said
1,(144 coal miners had been displaced
in the coalfields of the province since
1920.
"What we want now," said Mr.
Pearson, "is immediate relief, and
the only way this can come for Vancouver Island miners is by securing
more coal orders. We feel that the
transportation companies have an
obligation to perform in regard to
the miners, and that this obligation
has not been fully met.
"The progress of this Island is
vital to trail spoliation companies
and they are using oil. It is a source
of disappointment to Nanaimo to
see the growing use of fuel oil ou
land and sea. The men have only
one weapon, a weapon we propose
to use to the limit, and that is the
influence we may have with the Government of this country," concluded
Mr. Pearson.
C. F. Davie, M.P.P., said he endorsed the views expressed by Mr.
Pearson in regard to the distress in
coal mining areas through the shrinkage of employment.
New Spark Arrester
W. Ray, inspector of Provincial
Government Railways, told of tests
he had witnessed with the new
Brown-Cyclone spark arrester, to
reduce fire hazards in the operation
of locomotives with both oil and coal.
The tests had shown, he said, that,
while certainty had not yet heen
demonstrated, the new device was
far .in advance of that known as th*;
"mechanics' front-end," now in use
on Canadian locomotives, and, if applied by the Dominion rail systems,
would enable a much larger use of
coal with efficiency. The cost of
extra fire patrols, and the penalizing
costs of fire outbreaks attributed io
\he railroads, had in the past encour-
ged the use of fuel oil rather than
'al, he declared.
"». Z. Coverhill, the chief forester
sa. records of his department showed -ot there was one fire for every
thrd miles of road on the average
w>tn ool-burning systems, and one
fire tnWcry ten miles where oil wos
in use. }\0 was not prepared to say
that peWtion hail been reached in
spark aWcrs.
The c«t of changing from the present syst» in use of locomotives to
the new tvice, If it were proven
suitable, uuld be between $200 and
$400 earh.tfic conference was told
hy Clyde Levitt .in reply to further
questions. 1-, Leavitt, chief fire inspector for the Dominion Railway
Board, stronty urged the attention
of the delejfaW he given to recent
tests with thi'new spark arresters.
Nine-tenths nf)he fires in coal-bum-
ing systems wolld he reduced if the
new device wenlapplied, he believed
The railway kftrd did not undertake to tell the ompanies what they
should use, but lad drawn the attention of both traiscanada systems to
the new device sane weeks ago, and
the matter was itill under advisement, said Mr. Leavitt. There wns
reason to suppose that the new device would also coitain an element
of fuel economy, which might serve
to popularize coal tor locomotive
use.
Charles A. Cottrell, of the Cana-
adian Pacific Railway, mid that ev ■
cry sympathy was felt for those con
sented in the coal industry of the
province. The railways, on tbe other
hand, bad a duty not bounded by
provinces, and, as far as his road was
concerned, Island coal could only be
used to a point eighty-two miles east
of Vancouver, at best, as was being
actually done at present. If coal
were burned in the mountain division it would have to he bought from
Alberta, and each little producing
centre depended to some extent on
the section of railway nearby for its
support.
Stocked Up On Coal
Last year the Canadian Pacific
Railway stocked up with coal in anticipation of a big grain movement.
The movement did not take place
nnd as a result large coal reserves
had been on hand, with consequent
reduction in purchases later in the
season. There was, he added, every
prospect of a good grain crop tliis
season, and, just as soon as the crop'
was moving the road would be in
the market again for coal. Progress
along the lines of experimentation •
had to be workekd out slowly, hut
something would likely be worked
out that would be of benefit to the
coal situation on the Island, he j
thought.
Railways   Sympathetic
.1. M. Cameron of (he Esquimalt I
& N'anaimo Railway, said that the
road was very sympathetic to the
subject under dispute. The Island
was different from the Mainland in
many respects, aud was a heavily
timbered section wiih a long dry
season. Conversion from oil to coal
burning in locomotion was a costly
affair .with bunkers and other facilities that would have to he sup-
plied.
World   Condition
Col. T. A. Hiam, representing the
Canadian National Railways, said
the British Columbia Government
was to lie congratulated on having
brought about the conference, which
offii ials of his road felt would have
un immediate effect in the betterment of conditions for the British
Columbia coal industry. Conditions
facing the industry in this province,
he said, were not unique, but were
being shared generally throughout
the world.
Expect   Good   Crop
"Like the Canadian Pacific, we
are looking forward to a good grain
crop this year." continued Colonel
Hiam. "A rough estimate of the
crop might be anywhere iu the neighborhood of 41)0.000,00 bushels compared with aboul 200,000,000 bushels last year. We would require for
our share in that business, so far as
the westward movement is concerned
about 15,000 tons of coal, so you
see there is some prospect of early
relief for the coal mines of this province.
"You know the railways are not
the only 'bad boys' in this business.
There are other bad boys as well,
and I am inclined to believe you are
expecting too much of the railroads'
if you look to them for the solution
of all your problems,' 'continued Colonel Hiam. "So far as the Canadian
National Railways are concerned, we
would be delighted to have representation on any committee that is appointed as a result of this conference to further the use of B.^C. coa!,
and to assist in any way that is open
to us tho work of that committee,"
he concluded.
Use of Oil Necessary
Speaking for the B.C. Coast Service, Capt. C. D. Neroutsos said that
service used both coal ami oil. To
keep up the requisite speeds demanded by fast passenger schedules oil
was necessary, he explained, as the
schedules could not be maintained
with coal under the present system.
The service carried a very large
number of people into the province
every year and competed with oil
burning ships in the movement of
tourists through B. C. points to Alaska. That form of competition
could not be met with coal, he commented, when other lines were using
oM, and the public itself set the demand  for  fast  service schedules.
Oil and internal combustion engines were being used all over thc
world for shipping nowadays, continued the manager of the B.C. Coast
Service. It was physically possible
for the service to burn coal in some
of its ships, and this matter was being taken under advisement, he add
ed, with the hope that something of
interest to local producers might be
arrived at.
For Power Generation

point that the increasing use of hydro-electric  power was  ousting  rhe

Long Cherished
Aim Attained
Much Needed
Ferry Operating
A.   H.   SWAN   COMMENCED   THE
DENMAN   FERRY   ON
MONDAY
|     Last  Monday, after  many,  many
■ months of effort, the Denman Island-
■ Bmkley Bay ferry became a reality
when Mr. A. H. Swan, started the
run across from the Island to Buckley Bay. The ferry is subsidized by
the Provincial Government and is
the outcome of a combined effort of
the Farmers' Institute of Denman
Island, Courtenay-Comox Board of
Trade and Dr. G. K. MacNaughton,
M.L.A.
That the ferry will be a success
goes without saying and Capt. Swan
in announcing his schedule intimates
that as near as possible the ferry will
run fo coincide with the E. and X.
Train service and also that of the
stage service. The first ferry leaves
Denman Island at «::i0 a.m., 10:15
a.m., 2:15 p.m., 4:;i0 p.m. and leaves
Buckley Bay at it: 15 a.m., 11:15 a.m.
4:80 p.m. and 5:80 p.m., every day
except Sunday. The Sunday service
will be slightly modified, the first
boat leaving Denman at 8:.'!0 a.m.
and the next at 5:00 p.m. and leaving Buckley Bay at 0:00 a.m. and
5 :.'10 p.m.

Cricketers  Take Lease
Of "Y" Grounds.
Through the generosity of Lt.-
Col. C. W. Villiers, the Cumberland
Cricket Club have been granted *i
lease of the "Y" ground and have
assumed control of the same. The
Colonel, readily recognizing the
great work put in by the cricketers
on the "Y" ground granted the lease
which gives to the cricketers absolute control of the ground. It is
to be hoped that all parties granted
permission to use the ground will do
their utmost to assist in keeping the
same in good condition.    It is .intim-

New Method Of
Treating Coal
Visit Cumberland
After long Absence
Mr. and Mrs. Ralph E. Frost and
(laughter, Miss Norma, arrived in
Cumberlnnd on Thursday to renew
acquaintances when they were residents here some eight or nine years
ago. Mr. Frost at the time of his
residence in Cumberland operated
the Drug Store now run by R. C.
Lang, who took over the business
seven and one-half years ago. Both
Mr. and Mrs. Frost were exceptionally well known throughout the district, Mrs. Frost being at the time
a prominent pianist, her services being in great demand at all dances
and parties. Miss Norma Frost along
with her brother attended the local
public school and also made many
friends and whilst in the district,
Mr. and Mis. Frost would like to
meet as many of their old friends ns
possible before returning to their
home in Covina.  California.
Bowling   Green   Is   Declared   Open;
Colliery Company Thanked for
Assistance Rendered
Shortly after 11 a.m. on Saturday
last, a long cherished aim was realiz-
ed when the Cumberland bowling
green was officially declared open by I
Lt.-Co), Charles W. Villiers, general
manager of the Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir). Limited.
Prior to the opening ceremony the
Cumberland City Band appeared on ;
the scene and rendered several popular selections, the huge throng present appreciating the efforts of bandmaster Jackson and his men greatly.
In opening the proceeding*. A. J.
Tnylor, president of the Cumberland
Literary and Athletic Association
said it afforded him very much pleasure to welcome so many of the residents of Cumberland there that
morning. He also extended a cordial welcome to the olFicials of the
Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir), Ltd
and the sixteen members of tin- Nanaimo Lawn Bowling club who had
come up for the express purpose of :
assisting in the opening ceremony.
The officials of the Canadian Col- \
Ueries said Mr. Taylor had been very
generous in their offers of assistance
to the board of management of the
Athletic Club in their efforts to include lawn bowling in the activities.
That assistance was very much appreciated and he felt sure that the
feeling of friendship that existed between the management and the employees would be greatly enhanced.
He paid a great tribute to Mr. W.
A. Dwen who as the architect was
responsible for the building of the
green and club house, a club house,
second to none in the Province and
made possible entirely through the
generosity of the Canadian Collieries
through Lt.-Col Villiers. Mr. Taylor
said he did not want to lake up any
more time hut would call upon Lt.-
Col. C. W. Villiers to say a few
words and to declare the green open.

tlon of the bowling green.   Ho wish- j
ed the club a very successful future.
He hnd  been told,  he said,  that  ho

R. L. Process for Low Temperature
Carbonisation  of  Carbonaceous
Substances   (Coals,  Slacks
Lignites)  Has Been
Patented   in
Canada
It is a matter of newspaper and
political comment that the unemployment situation in British Columbia
collieries is serious.
Hence, any scheme which would
cause nn increased consumption of
coal and thereby afford additional
employment to miners should bo
seriously considered nnd investigated, This much, at least, is due the
unemployed.
With this in view attention is
drawn to the merits of thc R. L. process for the low temperature carbonization of carbonaceous substances such as coal, slack and lignites.
It is claimed that this process will
encourage the consumption of conl
ond stimulate the mining and other
industries  of  the   Province.
The low carbonization of coal by
a speedy process, inexpensive in operation and capable of being installed nt a low initial cost, with the
equipment safe-jrunrded against high
depreciation, should materially stimulate tbe consumption of coal .increase employment and thereby give
out-of-work miners fhe opportunity
to earn food, clothing and shelter
for themselves, their wives and cll-l
die n.
) A pilot plant, capable of treating
50 tons of coal or slack ov lignite
. of any kind by tbe R. L. Process is
; ready at Spokone, Washington, to
denionstratee the economic feasibility of the process and the truth of
the various claims of the inventors..
Messrs. Records and Louttet of Spokane.
The investigator can choose his
own raw material, his own expert
and his own operatives to effect the
low carbonization of his raw product by the use of superheated steam
and to check up the statements of
the inventors.
The investigator's expert can investigate the following claims and
his report can state definitely as lo
the truth thereof.
1. Coal, slack or lignite of any
kind is equally suitable for treatment, hence practically worthies';
slack and lignite can be changed into
clean, smokeless, valuable fuel with
free burning, high heating, qualities
at a low cost. Further, differing

Bowling Green
Being Drained
During the past week, the bowling
green has been fully occupied each
evening and some  real  good  games
enjoyed by Ihe members, The green,
will  undoubtedly  become  a   favorite
place during the summer months and
those   not   wishing   to   play   on   the
green  can   sit   on   the  spacious  coed
verandah ami enjoy watching others
play.   Tuesday evening the members
travelling down to the green received a decided shock when they discovered  that  a trench  half way across
the green  and about  two  feet  deep
had   been   cut.     On   investigation   it
was learned that Mr. A. D. Clark, of
Vancouver,  who  is  the superintendent of greens there hnd paid a visit
to the local green in the course of
a holiday jaunt.    After consultation
Iwith members of the executive and
Ithe architect il was decided that the
green should be drained Immediately
[with   the result   thai   the  trench   was
dug.    In the fall the other half will
S be trenched and Mr. Clark stales ihat
I next   year the green  will  be  in   lirst
I class shape.    The alterations being
undertaken, however, do not  inter-
! fere with play as four rinks are still
i available.    A singles handicap is he-
■ ing arranged and entries are now being received. Tbe draw will be made
on Saturday and play commenced in
lhe first tournament at the new howling green, the same day. Already
half   of  the   members   have   entered,
I and it is expected that by closing i
day, Saturday, every member of the
club will have his name on the list
Ladies   May   Form   Club
Whilst there has been nothing d"*J'
■ inite done up to the present time,
there is talk of the ladies forming a
club. Several well known ladies of.
the town have been heard to remark |
they can beat any of tin* men they
have seen play so that if a club is ;

eat ambitions, the building of a bowling green. He did not know very
much about the game but what little
he had seen nf it be bail formed the
opinion that it was very skilful and
at the same time a very healthful
form of recreation. He wished the
Huh all  success.
Presentations   Made
The president of ihe club. Mr.
Taylor said before proceeding any
further be had one or two very pleasing functions to perform. The board
of management had decided thai
such help received  from the Colliery
Company should not go unrecognized. He asked Colonel Villiers to accept a pair of Ik.wis and a "jack"
mounted on a beautiful statute. The
Colonel, in accepting the presentation said it was a great surprise to
him to receive such a very nice present. He did not know very much
about the game of bowling hut with
the handsome pair just given to him,
he hoped to come down to the green
sometimes and get one of the members to show him the way.
Mr. John Hunt, general superintendent was also the recipient «.f a
pair of bowls and in accepting them
said he was always pleased to be associated in any way at all with amateur sport and intimated that he
nt all times was quite ready to help
in promoting such sports to the best
of his ability. Concluding he said,

Mr. W. A. Owen was also the recipient of a pair of bowls and a
"jack" mounted. Mr. Taylor remarking that Mr. Owen bad heen of great
help to the board of management
and the green could never have heen
completed but for his good work.
Mr. Owen in reply said "I am not
going to make any speech, my work-
has been completed but I thank you
very much for your nice words and
the beautiful gift."
Mr. Thomas Graham was also presented with a "jack" mounted on a
beautiful statute, the president saying thnt during Mr. Graham's connection with the Colliery Company,
the board had always received ji
courteous hearing from him and at
all limes greal assislance. Mr. Graham in reply said it had afforded him
great pleasure to have been of assistance. Looking ai the bowling
green he could not help but feel glad
of the fuel that alter years of deliberation a bowling green had become
a reality. He felt sure thla many
of the older members who had got
past the time participating in tbe
more strenuous games would find
just the relaxation needed- to give
them a great deal of benefit and enjoyment. He wished the club all success in the  future.
Mr. T. H. Williams should also
have heen presented with a souvenir,

the gift would be presented to him at
a future date.
Mr. P. Perryf tbe president of the
company who happened to be on a
visit it, Cumberland was ca'led upon
lor a few words. Mr. Perry .-aid it
was always a pleasure to him to come
to Cumberland. He bad been brought
up in a mining village in tbe old
country where all was Murk and
smoky, but coming to Cumherland
was like coming to a health resort
instead of a mining camp. The beautiful country surrounding the city
looked bo peaceful and inviting and
with the new buvvling green added to

BIRTHRATE DROPS
ACCORDING in figures made public by the United States Bureau of Education the American birthrate is declining rapidly.
It' ii were not for large families owned by men
ami women whose parents came from some land
ss the water, tilings would probably be more
alarming, for in must sections few large families
of  'III American stock can be found.
Even as il is, less than four children per two
hundred Americans were born in 1928, whereas
.' children were born in 191").
In 1920 we had 4,320,000 children in the first
grade. Six years later with ten per cent, more
population there were less than four million children in this grade.

Association, 184. College St., Toronto, will be answered personally

SLEEP AND REST
Good habits of sleep and rest piny
a large part In securing the healthy
development of children. Very many
children do not get sufficient rest
and, as a result, they do not grow
or gain in weight. In addition their
appetites are poor, or they are irritable and cranky. Perhaps the most
frequent cause of malnutrition in
children is lack of sufficient rest.
The pre-school child suffers most
in this way. He has reached on interesting age, and often he his allowed to remain up for the evening
men! so that his father may ploy
with htm* Father most likely thinks
that be is amusing the child, but it
is really the child who is amusing
Father. The child enjoys this play,
but it makes him excited, and so he
does not settle down to sleep readily
when put to bed, with the result that
his rest is disturbed,
The ch'hl of two und three years
of age should be put tn bed lone;
hefore the family's evening meal.
The child of four and live should
go to bed right after the evening
meal, and should not be stimulated
by being played with just hefore his
bed-time.
We need never worry nbout a
child's having too much sleep. Up to
six  years  of  age,  the   child   should
, sleep for not less than twelve hours
' at night ,and one or two hours in
' the afternoon. The night sleep
should continue until the child wakes
: naturally.
The child under six needs more
rest than the school child, because1 hc
is more active and he is passing
! through a period when he is devehip-
j ing rapidly, both physically and men-
i tally.
1 The afternoon rest should be con-
.tinued. It is better that the child
• should sleep because sleep is thc
! best form of rest. If he does not
; sleep, he should he told to lie quiietlj
! und rest, and he should not be fussed
over for not going to sleep.
Mention should be made that the
j over-tired child is the one who, very
often does not feel a bit sleepy. Parents  may  think,  if  the  child  says
he  is  not  sleepy  and  seems  wlde-
I awake, that rest or sleep is not nec-
lessary,   Wo would like to stress the
fact  that  the  underweight  and  so-
called  nervous  children  very  often
refuse to admit that they are tired.
Children are more active on some
days than on others, and therefore,
they are not so tired on one day as
on another.    It is best, however, lo
have u regular bedtime for the child,
because  this  makes  it  much  easier
: for him to go to sleep.    He should
j then  be allowed to  sleep  until  h«
wakens.     In   this  way,   he   will   get
. all the sleep he requires, which  Is,
without  question,   what  is   most   essential  for his health and  strength
but   which,   nevertheless,   entails   no
expense.

a
New Method Of
Treating Coal
Continued from Pai»e One)
; from coal, it can be shipped or stored
1 Indefinitely in a powdered form with-
: out danger,
i li. The smokeless fuel produced by
; the R. L. Process has a low ignition
I point. This means that, unlike coke,
jut cun be kindled an easily as ordin-
; ary coul—a very valuable feature,
; especially  in domestic  use.
:.. Further, this smokeless fuel 1ms
greater heat values und consequently
, greater radiation than ordinary untreated coal or commercial coke. The
1 radiation of this smokeless fuel is
i approximately 25'. greater than
1 that of ordinary coal and the period
of combustion is approximately SO',
longer in duration.
4. The ash produced from such
combustion is free from clinkers
ami in appearance resembles wood
ash. This feature is extremely valuable in both domestic and commercial uses.
To sum up, this smokeless fuel,
produced by the R. L. Process, is
clean to handle, free from smoke and
soot, burns about half again as long
as coal and gives off approximately
25' i more beat than on equal
weight of flrst class coal.
The low temperature carbonJ:',a-
tion of one short ton of first class
coal or sunk or lignite, by the R. L.
Process, yields approximately the
following   products.
(a) 1,400   lbs. smokeless fuel
(b) 25  gals. Tar Oils
(c) 10,000 cu. ft. of 400 B.T.U.
Cases.
(d) 20 tbs. Ammonium Sulphate.
Now 1 ton of slack or lignite yields
about HI,000 B.T.U's per th. or 20,-
000,000   B.T.U's  In  all.
1 ton of smokeless fuel (produced
by the R. L. Process) yields about
12,750 B.T.U's per lb. or 25,000,000
B.T.U's in all.
1 ton of slack lignite produces
20,000.00   B.T.U's.
1 ton of slack or lignite produces
1,-100 lbs. of smokeless fuel or (12,-
750 x 1,400) equals 17, 850,000
B.T.U's In all.
Therefore, one can compare 1 ton
of slack or lignite before and after
treatment:
1 ton unhealed slack or lignite
yields  20,000,000   B.T.U's.
1 lon slack or lignite treated by
U. L. Process yields:
(a) 1.400 lbs. smokeless fuel capable of yielding   1.750,000  B.T.U's.
(b) 85 gals. Tar Oils (which can
be fractionated)
(c) 10,000 cu. ft. of Gas containing the equivalent of 400 B.T.U's per
cu. ft. of gas equals 4,000,000 B. T.
U's.
fd) HO lbs. Ammonium Sulphate.
Thus though 1 ton of slack or
lignite on treatment produces only
seven-tenths of its weight in smokeless fuel, this amount .if smokeless
fuel will yield 80.259} of the B.T.U'':
cedited to the ton of slack or lignite.
As an offset to this decrease of
10.75'; of tho B.T.U's, the ton of
treated slack or lignite yields 10,000
cu. ft, of gas containing 400 B.T.U's
per cu, ft. or in all gas capable of
yielding 4,000,000 additional B.T.U's
Further the ton of treated slack
or lignite gives 35 gals, of Tar Oils
and 20 tbs. of Ammnoium Sulphate.
The ton of treated coal, slack or
lignite yields products whose value
can be compared at Spokane (wholesale) :
1 ton coal, market price, $7.02,
Drumheiler, run of mine; 1 ton slack
market price, $0.00 Drumheiler slack coal, slack or lignite to the Spok&M

If the statements are true, then
the R, L. Process if used, is capable
of reviving the coal industry in British Columbia and of stimulating
other industries and reducing unemployment.
It is Lo be trusted that any expert
