RANGERS UNLUCKY TO BE
DEFEATED IN HEAVY SCORING
GAME PLAYED LAST SUNDAY
Heavy Rain Makes Good Foot-;
ball Impossible — Mitchell Is
Star of Both Elevens
A deluge of rain turned what might
have   been   a   very closely  contested j
match Inlo a listless and nnlnterest-
Ing free-scoring game when the Na-:
nnlmo Veterans met the Cumberland
Rangers  in  an    I'p.-lsland    League |
soccer    game    on     the    Recreation
Grounds last Sunday.      Seven  goals j
In all were scored, but unfortunately I
the   Cumberland   team   only   secured j
three  of  them.      Thoy  should   have j
had at least a draw and If there had
heen anyone on their forward line lo |
take advantage of the numerous op-1
portunlties,   why,  Ihe    Vels.    would
have gone back to Nannlmo a badly
beaten team.
At half-time the Nanaimo nggregn-
tlon led by two clear goals, both of
which Walker would easily have saved had the Held nol been so muddy.
Robertson at outside left,, soon made
the score 2 to 1, by a nice piece of
play followed by a hard drive Into
the right-hand corner of the net,
where the goalie wasn't. Not to be
outdone Watson (Veterans) scored
for his team artcr following the ball
from one wing to Ihe other and back
again. Finally he connected. Walker
again falling to save on account of
the muddy ground. From the kick-
off Robertson again scored for his
team, making It il-2 iu favor of the
Vets. Five minutes later the score
was evened although it looked as
though thc chance would be wasted.
Marshall and Robertson both headed
for the hall and It looked as though
someone was in for a tumble. Tlie
former secured possession, easily
passed his older opponent Skipper
Murray, and scored from twenty yards
out. It didn't Inst though for with
only ten minutes to go the G.W.V.A.
scored the winning gonl. Final results: Vets. 4. Rangers 3.
Mitchell Was Star
Mitchell, left full-back for tiie
Rangers, was easily the star of the
twenty-two men. Time and again
lie saved wliat would have been sure
goals by his speed in recovering and
ills free and easy style woll him a
good word from every fan. Farmer
at centre-half and Devlin at right
half were also very good. The Vets.
are a much older team and consequently their slow-going tactics did
not give any individual player a
chance to show his worth. Watson
Is a nice player hut doesn't play his
position. He can be found roaming
all over the field.
A. S. Jones tooted liis whistle to
the apparent satisfaction of both
teams and to all the fans, which, by
the way, were few and far between.
The heavy rain, no doubt, wus tlie
cause of this.
Tlio Annual Fall Fair of the Comox
Agricultural and Industrial Association wus hold on Wednesday and
Thursday this week and was better
patronized than similar events that
hnve been held for several years. During the portion of the week previous
to the fair the weather man was real
mean, sending rain every day and
making tlie management of the fair
feel apprehensive lest he should keep
up the downpour until after Thursday. On Wednesday night the sky
cleared and most of the residents of
tlie valley took advantage of a bright
sunshiny Thursday to meet In their
annual re-union, for that is what the
fall fair has resolved itself Into. They
came from out of the everywhere into
Courtenay and spent the day fraternizing and inspecting and personally
comparing the exhibits.
The hall was filled with the Valley's
best, this year being artistically and
painstakingly arranged on the benches for which the hall committee certainly deserve llie highest praise. Immediately on entering the hall one
waa confronted with an excellent display hy the Comox Creamery Association which showed its various products. There was butter, milk,
cream, eggs, honey, jam among the
manufactured articles and various
creamery implements for whicli the
association was agont. Outside were
otlier industrial exhibits, mainly from
the stores of Courtenay. Tarbell's
had a display and the Chevrolet and
Ford people showed their wares.
There were a number of sideshows,
hut these were not as interesting as
in former years yet they did a good
business.
In the hall it was hard to discriminate or form an opinion as to which
was the most interesting division. The
floral displays were exquisite, chief
Interest being centered in the collection of gladioli shown by Messrs.
Hopkins and Hamilton, of Duncan
and the collection of dahlias shown
hy T. W. Palmer of Victoria. They
were merely for show and were not
In the prize entries. Nothing more
beautiful has ever been seen In the
Valley and the representatives of
these firms booked many orders.
The potato section, as usual, was
well tilled and Competition in the ladies' department was as keen as usual.
Taken all In all, thc fair this year
was a step in advance of that held
last year and It Is hoped by the secretary and the board of directors thai
as time goes ou Interest In the fair
will increase and that It will not be
long before the Comox Vnlley fair is
recognized as Hie best nf its kind on
the island.
P. P. HARRISON OPENS  KAMI
The official opening of the fair was
performed by I*. P. Harrison. M.L.A.,
who said:—
1 appreciate the Invitation extended mo to formally open this Exhibition, liefore doing so 1 take this as a
good opportunity to point out to all.
and In particular those who are relatively new comers, that this dlstricl
j Is, from the standpoint of natural re-
j sources the most important  part of
, the Island.
We are In the happy position of being able to constitute ourselves the
distributing point for large territories
I lying to the  north and south  of us
and fnr adjacent Islands.
What   we   require   is   organization
and energy to properly and more rapidly develop these opportunities, two
| of the main factors In that connection
] are:—
Firstly—A unity of spirit and action
'on the part of the residents ,the for-
j getting of petty  political differences
and prejudices, nnd the placing of the
Interests of this district hefore thai
of any political party.
Secondly—Better  highways.
I am only too glad as your representative In the Legislative Assembly
to do my part, and In order to do so

efficiently I must have the full moral
support of yourselves. And It is for
you tQ give me such support; to assist iii eliminating frivolous or unreasonable demands, or demands
which though reasonable in themselves are not at the present time
compatible with the financial statu-
of the Province. i
In concluding let us all appreciate
the Interest and energy which Is now
and has been for many years, displayed by the Comox Agricultural
Association in keeping alive the agricultural interests of the district.
And I take this opportunity of extending to the Association, its members and officers, my hearty congratulations, and wishing them every success for the future.
I now declare this Exhibition to he
open to all those who can avail themselves the pleasure of seeing what
organization aud Industry can effect.

Murdered Chinese
Well Known Here
VANCOUVER.—The ilrst murdei
In Chinatown's long-threatened Tong
war. occurred at 8:15 Wednesday
night, when Lew Hung Chang, known
as David Lew, law student and business man, was riddled with bullets
from a revolver In the hands of an
unidentified Oriental gunman. Lew
was shot down at Carrall and Pender streets, after responding to a
telephone cull received at his office
in the Holden building.
A Chinese came up behind Lew,
and then swung iu front of him, firing one shot at a range of two feet.
the bullet entered the region of the
heart. Lew fell on the sidewalk,
when, according to witnesses, the
gunman fired three more shots Intu
liis prostrate body. Lew was dying
when reached hy detectives and con-
Htuhles, and breathed his last in the
ambulance as lt rushed towards Ihe
hospital. .Meanwhile the gunman
lias disappeared completely.
Contending that a less expensive
course could have been followed by
the plaintiff's solicitors. Sir. D. N.
Hossle, on behalf of the Comox Logging & Railway Company, asked Ml'.
Justice .Morrison to strike out many
legal charges presented against the
company for taxation.
The company has paid approximately $102,000 pursuant to judgment of
Mr. Justice D. A. McDonald as compensation for property loss, Injuries,
and In one case the death of a son.
sustained by .Mervllle settlers.
Fifty-two settlers entered Individual suits against tbe company and
fifty were successful,
Slessrs. Bird, Macdonald & Co. presented fifty bills of costs for taxation
and, In addition, one bill covering tho
costs of the consolidated trial whlcn
occupied most of three weeks. Tho
bills aggregate, it is said, between
(20,000 and 125,000.
The company, by the terms of a
settlement reached with the succesj-
ful settler plaintiffs, in addition to
paying 80 per cent of damages awarded and taxed costs, must also pay
costs, which can not be taxed, incurred between the plaintiffs and their
sollcittors.
Sir. Hossle argued that there was
no necessity for fitfy-two actions. He
contended one writ would have been
sufficient. In any event, he said,
after the court ordered the actions
consolidated for trial, there should
have been only one judgment and one
bill of costs. The plaintiff's solicitors presented fifty Judgments and
fifty bills of costs.
On behalf of the pallntlffs Mr. R.
M. Macdonald stated that the proper
course had been followed, ln view of
the conflicting nature of his clients'
claims, and thai his firm had, from
the outset, attempted to avoid unnecessary expense. He read a letter, received from the company's solicitors, which stated that individual
actions should be Instituted.
Mr. Justice Morrison reserved Judgment.

LEAVE SOMETHING BEHIND
■llie death of an individual however
prominent, matters very little except
In a lew ininiedlules friends and relatives. Thc tew wbo suffer loss are
as nntliing in llie millions who, not
knowing the deceased, feel no poignant grief at his departure. Viewed
from inside our own hearts, some of
ns feel pulled up witli importance;
viewed from without we ure only
units in a vast crowd, each unit living its  life and then  perishing,  un
mounted and uncared for by most of
the units around. The only thing ot
interest to the survivors is the record
of things done. The trees we plant
live after us and shelter generations
that follow; Ihe crops we grow feed
other mouths than our own; our
own; our deeds, good or bad, do live
on; the good is not "interred with our
bones." Tilings done and not merely
dreamed ubout are the things that
make us have interest iu our fellow
creatures. And these works must be
done without expectation of full recognition. An offering of service to
the world is aud must be largely Impersonal, for though our deeds may
be widespread, our own individuality
is known lo hul few. The help you
give a little child to distinguish between right and wrong is the sort of
tiling that lives after you are gone,
while Ihe pounding you may do on a
big bass drum dies with its echo.

The truth is that the girls are get-

What Scouting
is and Does
In an endeavor to further the Interest already taken In the Boy Scout
Movement by many of Cumberland's
prominent citizens, The Islander, in
this issue, begins a series of articles
dealing with the Boy Scout. It Is
the hope of this paper to arouse interest in the welfare of Canada's future citizen—the hoy—and make in
him an asset to our country,
Some Opinions of Scouting
Our new Governor-General) Sir
Jul.(.'ii B.r.ng, while commanding the
"Byng Hoys," the Canadian Corps, in
France: "All Scout ideals have been
exemplified out here, and the mental
and moral training have brought
Scouts to (ho front."
His Excellency the Duke of Devonshire, retiring Governor-General of
Canada, in his farewell address to
Canadian Scouts: "I know very well
that, having taken your places iu the
great Boy Scout Movement, you wiil
grow up worthy citizens."
H.R.H. the Duke of Connaught: "1
know of no organization or institution, not even a school or Sunday
School, that does so much to promote
the development of the boy along safe,
sane, sound British lines."
The late L-ord Kitchener: "You are

building a foundation which is essential for making good men."
Admiral Lord Beresford: "Scouting
has done more for youth, manhood
and good comradeship than all the
governments of the world together."
Sir Hugh Macdonald: "Everything
that the Hoy Scout pledges himself
to do is that which his mother would
like to see him do. I would have no
hesitation in advising any mother lo
let her boy join the Boy Scouts."
The Itev. Father Pulton, O.M.I.: "1
am here lo represent His Grace Archbishop Sinnott, and to bear to you
the message of his hearty support and
sympathy to the Boy Scout Movement.
There Is nothing we can advise that
will do what is renuired so effectively us the Boy Scout organization."
The late Theodore Roosevelt: "The
Boy Scout Movement Is distinctly an
"asset to our country for the development of efficiency, virility and good
citizenship."
The Outlook
Dr. James W. Robertson, Chief
Commissioner of Scouting for Canada: "Throughout Canada an extension
and deepening of Interest In welfare
work for boys has heen quite manifest. Men of discernment and goodwill, with a keen sense of responsibility for the obligations and opportunities of life, are turning In Increasing numbers towards 'Boys'
Work.' They find it one of the kinds
of Scout Service which is most worth
while.     All the fathers  whose sons
are or have been Scouts commend
Scouting for what they know it has
done for their boys. Some of llieiu
become Scoutmasters to pay hack
part of the debt they feel they owe.
The Scout Movement welcomes such
men."
What Scouting is and Does
Scouting is character-forming recre
ational education carried on to a large
extent ln the great, healthy school of
the Out-of-Doors . lt develops the
spirit and habit of resourcefulness
nnd of cheerfully facing difficulties.
; Those were qualities of the Canadian
[ pioneers and, embodied ln their descendants, huve given us a large number of the great names of Canadian
history.
U Meets the Boys' Craving for
Romance and Adventure
Recalling   your   own   boyhood,  .tlo
you remember how iu your reading,
j your play, your dreaming, you loved
| to imagine yourself a great war hero?
I a discoverer and adventurer? a hum-
| er In thc Jungles of Africa? a cowboy?
a   knight,   rescuing   the   weak—and
beautiful—and   punishing    the   evildoers ?
The boy of today dreams the same
dreams. Especially in Canada, docs
he love to imagine himself u pioneer
buck woodsman; an Indian, a plainsman; log-house or wigwam building,
hunting, tracking, riding bucking
broncos. Scouting satisfies this love
of romance.

Decrease In Forest Fires

Factory Experience

With the exception of British Columbia there has been an encouraging
decrease in the number of forest fires
in Canada during the present year, according to W. H. KUby, chief of forest protection of the Canadian National Railways. This favorable condition Mr. Kilhy attributed largely to
tbe Intensive educational campaign
carried on through the newspapers of
the dominion and to the closer co-or-
dlnntion of effect on the part of th;
raijways with the Forestry officers of
the government. Along the entire
lines of the Canadian National system. 375 fires had been reported up to
the middle of September, ahout 30:1
of these having occurred west of Winnipeg, where weather conditions had
been more favorable to forest fires
than in Eatsern Canada.

Wtllys-Knight Motor
Gains Power In Use
Certain definite qualities determine
motor efficiency. Service-ability is
of first importance—for on the life of
the motor, the life ot the car itself
largely depends. Power is imperative, quietness is important—for
quietness of operation is the truest
proof of absence of wear. Economy
is also of great importance.
These qualities, and the proportion
in which they are found, determine
the true value of a motor.
In the Willys-Knight sleeve-valve
motor these qualities have been developed to the highest degree. The
Willys-Knight is the only type of motor
that makes its owners still more convincingly enthusiastic after they have
driven their car 50,000 or more miles.
The superiority of the Willys-
Knight is due to its difference from
llie poppet-valve or ordinary type of
motor.
In general, valves in automobile
motors are of two kinds—poppet
valve and sleeve-vnlves.
Instead of clashing poppet-valves,
raised by hammer-like blows from
steel cams (smashing blows tbat gradually wear away the original adjustment) and seated by strong springs,
the Willys-Knight engine has sliding
sleeves-valves that glide silently up
and down, one working within the
other on a tilm of oil, both actuated
positively and silently by connecting
rods of their own.      Once  perfectly

adjusted during assembly at the factory these slldlng-sleeves cannot vary,
no matter what the speed.
Thus, you have a valve always open
widest at the exact right moment, a
valve that is always positively and
rightly closed during the compression
and explosion ,
One outstanding feature in the manufacture of Willys-Knight engines is
thnt the choice of design of such important matters as the size of thc
valves Is not limited to the size of
the cylinders, as iu the case of other
types of motors.
The spherical cylinder head construction, made possible hy the sleeve
valve design, allows of another Important factor in the development of
maximum power, namely, tho placing
of the spark plug directly in tlle centre of the combustion chamber. This
is the construction sought by all engineers, lt is attained in the Willys-
Knight, hut only approached in the
poppet-valve.
All high-powered ammunition is
centre-fired, not rim-fired. The Ideal
Ignition would be one ln whicb all of
the gas under compression In the cylinder could he fired simultaneously.
In the construction that places a
spark plug at the side side or away
from tlie centre of the cylinder, it is
quite evident that when ignition takes
place, part of the gas ignited must
act as a fuse to Ignite the balance of
the gas.
It is only the gas exploding over the
piston and not to one side of it that
can give maximum power. This explains uoiither reason why the four-
cylinder Willys-Knight sleeve-valve
motor is as flexible and as powerful
as most six-cylinder poppet-valve
of equal size.
The Willys Knight sleeve-valve motor actually Improves with use. It
Increases in power, in flexibility, in
economy. At 5.000 miles It Is actually superior in motor performance
than it was (luring the final careful
factory inspection. Carbon, thc deadly foe ot other motors, actually Increases compression In the Willys-
Knight.

best when the owner begins to drive
it. Therefore, it can only begin to
wear out.
Willie periodically carbon must be
removed and the pitted valves re-
ground in the poppet-valve engine,
the sleeves In the WIUys-Knlght motor are actually designed to encourage a deposit of carbon. The WIUys-
Knlght motor employs to advantage a
factor that in other motors is a disadvantage.
Quietness of operation la the WIUys-
Knlght motor is an advantage—and
an Important one—this advantage ls
purely Incidental. Its quietness of
operation Is the quietness of a prop
erly designed mechanism and is uot
secured by muffling noise-producing
parts or altering design at the expense of efficiency.
There is not even a humming of
gears in the Willys-Knight motor, for
silent chains are used Instead.
The phrase "Tremedous Power
Tuned to a Whisper" has very aptly
been applied to the WIUys-Knlght engine.

When policyholders unsolicited, write and congratulate the Company on results, "there must be a

F. H. Buker of Brockville, Ont., writes:
"Dear Sirs: Enclosed herewith you will find

should be taken as the base of operations; all publicity forces should he
marshalled, and a concentrated plan I
of campaign mapped out. It is not I
necessary for any units to loose their j
individuality, but co-ordination of effort would increase the effectiveness |
of Uritish Columbia's, at present, unorganized publicity.

SYNOPSIS OF

feet per acre west of the Coast Range

forms, copies of which can be obtained from the Land Commissioner.
Pre-emptions must be occupied for
five years and improvements made

No. 10, Land Series, "Purchase and
Lease of Crown Lands."
Mill, factory, or Industrial Bites on

HOMESTEAD LEASES

erected In the first year, title being
obtainable after residence and Improvement conditions are fulfilled
and land has been surveyed.
LEASES
For grazing and Industrial purposes areas not exceeding 640 acrea
may be leased by one person or a
company.
GRAZING
Under the Grazing Act the Province Ib divided Into grazing districts
aud tbe range administered under •
Grazing Commissioner. Annual
grazing permits are Issued based on
numbers ranged, priority being given
to established owners. Stock-owners
may form associations for range
management. Free, or partially tree,
permits are available for settlers,
campers and travellers, up to ten
bead.
Company's goods out of the market.
But if in their efforts to force their
own goods on a reluctant customer,
they turn him against Black's polish,
and he purchases a foreign article instead, both firms lose. Foreign trade
is advanced at the cost of Canadian
Industry, and the aggregation of sucli
cases means that less money is available for the purchase of Blacks' and
Brown's polishes hy unemployed consumers.
ln selling a country, (not ln the
base sense', local interest, naturally
and rightly, is the first consideration.
The log-hut community of Lone Dog
Creek wants to boost the great advantages of its location and natural
resources, with its sure and certain
prospects of rapid expansion. The
longed fnr prospect is told of all the
good things, and possibly some of the
bad; but it does not fill his particular requirements. Hades Hollow, un
opposition community, Is brought Into thc conversation, but the portrayal
of thnt Indescribable "dump" promptly decides tbe prespect that he has
hit the wrong trail. Do the idlers of
Lone Dog Creek who, from their
"box" seats ln the general store,
watch tbe dust caused by thc departing prospect on the trail to Back
Again, Washington, U.S.A., realize
they have made a bad stroke of business? When Lone Dog Creek failed
to please and the prospect evinced Interest In Hades Hollow, he should
have beon given all possible information and encouragement instead of
discouragement. Had he located nt
the latter place he might later have
strolled Into the former with his suitcase and eventually gained renown as
Lone Dog Creek's oldest resident.
Failing that he would have been a
prospective customer for the dreamed
of mail order house at the corner of
Box and Cox Streets If the streets
were cut through.
A settler lost to the Province affects
every community, large and small.
It means one less over which to
spread the burden of taxation. It
means one consumer less; one less to
Headaches
and the eyes-
ONE thing has been demonstrated without a shadow of
a doubt-it Is this:
QA'/e of all headaches are
ts*J caused by eye-strain, and
can bc relieved quickly and permanently by suitable glasses.
I fit more cases for eye-strain
than I do for defective viBlon,
and the results are so gratifying
—so conclusive, that you ought
to know about them.
COME in nnd mnke an appointment for examination

third Monday and Tuesday.
develop the Province, and—it delays
the return of prosperity. From the
writer's point of view, British Columbia comes first. But if a desirable
settler cannot be induced to come
here, get him into Canada it possible.
He may eventually follow the sun to
British Columbia, and then continue
with the birds to Victoria. If he
never comes to Canada he can never
reach this Province. Once in Canada
lie may wiggle, but he must pay the
price set by law and contribute part
of what we now pay into the Federal
Treasury. In addition he will be a
purchaser and consumer of Canadian
goods; some of which may he the products of British Columbia.
Why. what and how to advertise,
and tbe relationship between provincial, local, and business organizations
are subjects meriting careful consideration. The publicity work of the
Provincial Bureau of Information
should Rt In with other publicity
aud business organizations. Tlie business house that advertises Okanagan
Apples or canned salmon helps tbe
Province, and effective publicity by
the Province benefits the producers
ot apples and salmon products. Hence
tlle reason for co-operntlon which
could not fall to Increase efficiency
ull round and bring hack a measure
of prosperity lo British Columbia.
Demand For Homesteads
There continues to be a brisk demand for homesteads In northern Alberta. During a recent week 20
were filed on at the Edmonton, Alberta, office. Newcomers are from many
lands, but Americans predominate.
Pleased With Tar Sands
Alberta's tar sands near Waterways have been attracting considerable attention from experts this season. The latest to visit the deposits
was Ronald T. Dny, prominent mining
engineer of New Vork City, who recently returned from the north, expressing the confident opinion that
there was no obstacle to the development of the bituminous sands on a
large scale.
Grain Loadings
Delay In threshing operations due
to recent rain has held up somewhat
the movement of grain from the west-
urn harvest fields, according to grain
loading figures issued ou September
16 by tlie Canadian National Railways, Loadings at that time however, wore being made at the rate of
about 200 cars daily. Since August
1, the opening of thc present crop
yenr, a total of 2.831 cars containing
3,838.000 bushels of grain had been
loaded at C.N.R. points. Of this num
ber 144 curs wero delivered to Vancouver.

Newsboy's Band
Returns Home
"We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves
In the Old Country; the trip has been
an education to us, and we were able
to do some useful missionary work
on behalf of the dominion during our
stay." These were thc statements
made by Jobn Michaels, organizer
and manager of tlie Edmonton Newsboys' band, during a short stop In
Winnipeg a few days ago enroulo
over Canadian National lines from a
four weeks' engagement at the British Empire Exhibition. While in the
Old Country, the band visited the district of Edmonton and played before
an audience of 35,000 people.
Improvement Of
Home Surroundings
That the farmers of Western Canada are now giving increasing attention to tlie Improvement of the
home surroundings is shown by the
fact that they have not only planted
5,250,000 trees distributed from the
Canadian Government Forestry station at Indian Head and Sutherland.
Snsk., this year, but have also purchased large quantities from private
nurseries.
Wealth In Wool Industry
It has been estimated that southern
Alberta's sheep and wool industry
this yenr will bring sheepmen anil
farmers of the south new wealth to
the extent of $1,500,000.
C. N. Station
Names Changed
Announcement Ih made at western
regional headquarters of the Cana-
adian National Railways that certain
changes in station names will become
effective with the next time card. The
station at mileage 71.5, Brazeau nub-
division. Alberta, at present known as
"Norma," will be shown as "Prevo,"
to avoid confusion wltb a station or
that name in the Minlotu subdivision.
Manitoba.
"Holder," a station nt mileage 10-l.fi
in tbe C'raik subdivision, Saskatchewan, will in future be shown hs
"Sinales," on account of there beiiiR
