was quite dead and it was evident that
he had been killed when the car left

into the river, being pinned under the

only be conjectured.

Resident of Cumberland For the
Past Eight Years
Dear Mr. Neill:
I have received your letter of November tith respecting the application of pulverized fuel tiring to steamships and to large buildings und i am
glad to say that a great deal of progress has been made towards the Investigation of this subject.
Immediately alter the pasage of the
resolution in the House to which you
refer, an officer of my department
was sent to visit the important manufacturers of pulverized fuel equipment
in Montreal and New York and a
memorandum submitted to me. iu
addition another officer was Instructed to go to Halifax and watch and
report upon the trials being made by
the Dominion Coal Company on the
ship "Lingan". This same officer has
been studying the use of pulve:i;:ed
fuel firing throughout the suumiei
and is to present a paper ou tlie subject next week at the annual western
meeting of the Canadian Mining Institute.
The result of these enquiries (u so
far as steamships are concerned is
summarized in the following summary :
"It is believed that a greut deal
of experimental work still remains
| to be done in tho way of relining the
j equipment if it is to be generally ac-
I ceptable for marine purposes, and

THE COMMITTEE ot the privy council for scientilic
and industrial research In its report for 1926-27
"For the lirst time we can envisage on the auro bwls
of experimental results the production from coal of liquid
fuel iu sufficient quantity to Bupply all the requirements
of motor transport, shoubl natural supplies of petroleum
At the same time the committee makes the qualification
that it remains to be seen whether this new Industry can
be established on a large commercial stale before the natural resources are insufficient to BUpply 'be Increasing
demand for liquid fuels.
The conversion of coal into light petroleum products
by a new process is now being developed in Germany on
a commercial scale, and as a result of the arrangement
entered Into eighteen months ago by the department of
scientilic and industrial research with Dr. Berglus and
the British Btrgius Syndicate, a number of experiments
have been carried out at Rheiuau ou tbe treatment of
selected British coals with hydrogen under high pressure
at moderately high temperatures.
'The experiments, which have been continued by other
investigations at the fuel research station," The report
continues, "have shown beyond doubt that by such treatment a large proportion of the coal substance ean be eon-
verted in to liquid fuels. The information in the possession oi' the department does not, however, make it
possible to assess tlie- commercial value of these developments which are shortly to be made In the production of
energetically   hy tlie British chemical Industry."
Th.- value and possibilities of low temperature carbon-
iza;ion to the gas Indutsry will be demonstrated by experl-

Naval Department Wants Courtenay Water on "Spit."
All members of the City Council were
present at their meeting on Monday
Aid. Douglas, chairman of the Board
of Works, reported thc construction of
155 feet of plank sidewalk on Ander
ton Avenue and 235 feet on Wallace
Street since thc last meeting. A lot
of work, too. had bcen done along the
Union Bay road in preparation for the
laying of a gravel sidewalk in thc
spring. Two large stumps had been
burned on Alice Street and tile crossings had been put in on thc Lake Trail,
Courtenay Avenue and Union Bay road.
They had also had the streets gone
over with the government grader.
Aid. Pearse asked the chairman of
the Board of Works if thc money
voted for the taking of! of the hump
on Union Street would still be available for next year.
Alderman Douglas said he thought
he would have a balance on the right
side, but thc Mayor said that any votes
not spent this year would have to be
re-voted again next year.
Aid. Macintyro asked the chairman
of the Board of Works if it was his intention to continue in the good work
of clearing the stumps off the streets;
it waa quite a decided improvement,
The chairman said it was liis intention
to do so.
Aid. Pearse reported that the question of the opening up of the new lanes
was practically fixed up and it now
looked as though hy the end of the
year the matter would he disposed of.
Aid. Ball, chairman of thc Water
Committee, reported that a letter had
been received from the Department of
Defence with reference to the provision of water at tho "Spit." The City
Clerk read thc correspondence in this
Mayor McKenzie said that in his
opinion If the navy department installed the extension without any cost to
the city, the water should be given to
them free of cost.
Aid. Ball did not quite agree with
this; he thought that as this was an
extension of thc Comox system the
Comox .shareholders should have something to say about it. Aid. Maclntyre
said that at least a nominal charge
should be made if for no other purpose
than to keep the navy in touch with
Courtenay and Aid. Pearse was also
of the same opinion.
It was finally agreed, on motion by
Aid. Macdonald. that the council allow Comox to provide the navy with
water at the Spit, and recommend that
they bc charged the minimum rate, the
naval department to instal and maintain the necessary line.
Aid. Wallis reported that the Arbor
Day Committee had procured, and the
Board of Works had planted successfully, 100 trees on the streets, at a cost
considerably be!; w thc estimate of
Aldermen Pearse und Douglas were
appointed to act with the Mayor as a
Court of Revision on the Voters' List,
Under new business, Aid. Douglas referred to the work that Mr. Claud L.
Harrison was doing by means of his
lectures in advertising the virtues of
the Forbidden Plateau, which was one
of the best means of advertising th"
city had received and without any cost
to the city. He moved, seconded by
Aid. Macdonald and adopted, that a
letter of appreciation for this work
be sent to Mr. Harrison.
Aid. Macdonald suggested that should
the Public Works Committee have any
money left in their appropriations for
the year, as had been suggested by thc
chairman, that it bc used in Installing
proper stop signals at the street intersections and that thc present unsightly silent policemen bc done away with.
The chairman of the committee said
he would look into this matter.
The City Clerk reported that Mr. W.
P. Beavan had informed him that thc
government would not give permission
lor logging trucks to operate on secondary highways, antl could not, in any
event, give permission for the trucks
to operate within the city, so that it
wus row up to the city to make such
arrangements as were necessary with
these logging trucks.
On motion by Aid. Pearse, seconded
by Aid. Bali, the matter was left with
the chairman of the Board of Works to
deal with as he saw fit after consulting
with the Assistant District Engineer.

A new move by Japan, which would

Should the negotiations be consummated the position of Japan In the

j When "The Hunchback of Xotre
Dame' was filmed at Universal City
I Mary Phllhin. who has since become
a star of consequence, was an extra
! player. See it' you cau find her in the
presentation of the great classic of
the screen, whicli comes to the Hollo this week end.
Lon Chancy heads an all star cast
consisting of Patsy Ruth Miller, Ray
nimnl Hatton, Kulalie Jensen, Bran
ilon Hurst and many others.
A Central African Jungle was built
on the lot at reversal's studio for
the (liming of "Tarzan the Mighty,"
Universal'.* thrilling chapterplay. the
second episode of which will be shown
at the U0-JI0 on Monday aud Tuesday.
"The Love Cull" Is the title of the
.econd chapter, the first. "The Terror
of Tarzan," having started last week.
On an area covering forty acres
Universal planted thousands of .luug-
le plant* which had been brought
from Africa, kept in a hot house un
the boat and immediately put into tlie
ground at the studio. Quick production was necessary to shoot the scenes
hefore the plants died as a result of
ihe change of climate. The work was
flojje under the supervision of men
.vhfl ,had lived for years In the real
jungles ot the Congo.
A scheme of concealed wires wa
>!mployed to keep the wild beasts,
most of them were untrained, from
escaping. The wires, strong enougli
to hold back the attacks of a Hon or
an elephant, were surrounded hy tl
plant growth. Even the beasts did
not know where they were until they
'lashed against them.
"The Love Call" 'Is one of the most
thrilling chapters in "Tarr..n
Mighty." A synopsis of the first
chapter is shown on the screen,
tbose who did not see the heginnlnf;
may still know how the story goes,
Jack Nelson directed under the supervision of William Lord Wright.
Frank Merrill plays the starring
ole of Tarzan. while the cast include:
Natalie Kingston. Al Ferguson. Bobbie
Trevor and Lorimer Johnston.
"Ginsberg the Great" witli Geo,
Jesse! and a supporting cast which
Includes the lovely Audrey Ferris,
Gertrude Astor, Douglas Gerrard
Jack Santoro, Theodoe Lorch, Jlmmle Quinn and Stanley Sanford comes
to the Ila-Ilo this Wednesday and
Thursday. Anthony Coldeway who
wrote the scenario deserves the praise
of all laugh-lovers, as does Byron
Huskin for his clever direction.
"Ginsberg the Great' "Is the outland-
Ishly ludicrous story of a tailor's apprentice who wants to be rich and
famous. He buys a book on magic,
studies, practices the tricks before
his best girl, joins a strolling carnival, has unbelievable gofngs-on wltb
crooks, side-show freaks, chimpanzees, and at the last becomes the hero
winning fame, cash and the lady. It
Is slapstick, honest slapstick, with a
background of real humanity. You
should see "Ginsberg the Great."

(By Ben Cleuch) I j
I suppose the reports of St. Andrew's ]
Anniversary Dinner, held in the Native ;
Sons Hall last Friday night will be of' !
a highly congratulatory nature as they, j
appear in the weekly papers, and as} !
it is the first St. Andrew's dinner I; ;
have attended I would Tike to write, •
down my Impressions, as near the' •
truth as I can make them, '.
After the ticket buyers—no al! ;
Scotch by any stretch of Imagil ation j
—had been seated, the wheezy hag- \
pipe of Willie Stewart started up and, ■
a few men In tuxedo suits follow 'd on .'
and took their places at the table of j
honor; I don't wont to forget the I
young lady who was one of their num- ;
ber. Grace said, a bevy of young '•
waitresses brought in the various i
courses. . The flrst dish was jailed j
Scotch broth but If my mother had *
.vet such a Jabble of water on thc tab1" j
for my father's dinner he would have I
called it a different name. Whero was j
the barley, and the pens, and thc cab-1 I
bage. and the greens, and all the rest ;
if the ingredients that go to make I
Scotch broth? The "Shapplt Tautles" i
ind the neeps and thc carrots were "
ill right and the roast beef, and there I
vas plenty of all kinds of trimmings! ;
0 fill the "tomest meal girnal," and I I
jlease the most fastidious. ;
Tlie dinner over, the toast list was '.
■ntered on. interspersed with songs j •
veil sung, only whoever selected thc '
songs, had been bothered with his liver I ;
A'hen he made the selection, a.i the; I
oung lady singer had remarked that j ;
he Courtenay folk must be a mourn- «
ul bunch to choose such songs for a | J
St. Andrew's jollification. And what; !
happened to the Scotchmen that night j ;
i have not been able to make out, for1 j
two Native Sons of Canada, two Eng-, I
lishmen and a Scandinavian did the |
most of the talking and the two Scot-
ties who did speak made a "gle puirj
fist" at it.
To all Scotchmen like myself, who
have been away from the old land so
long ,it seemed queer that no mention
was made of the hills where we spent
our young days, of the "burns" where
we "guddled" for trout, of the lovers'
lanes where we first courted the "lassies," of the mother and father who
loved us and whom we revered; of th?
little cemeteries where lie those we
loved, and whose entrances were ave
nues of flowers of which heaven itself I
can boast nothing bonnier, The Scot-1
tish regiments were never mentioned;
one would thing the Black Watch, ihej
Camerons. the Seaforths and all the)
immortal regiments had never been;
that the 51st Division was already forgotten.
What's the use of a St. Andrew's
celebration if we cannot live over
again a night in the land we love. I
may be a crank and perhaps my "bri-
ther Scots" will not like my write-up, [
but I thing one and all will admit it |
is "Nothing but the truth."
Seasonable Motor
Bright Rear Light
Keep the rear light bright and clean
to avert a rear-end collision. The tail
light usually becomes dirty after a run
through muddy roads in wet weather
and this condition makes the car a
dangerous obstacle on the highway.
Care of Brakes Prevents Accidents
Many of the accidents that fill space
in almost every daily paper arc blamed
on defective brakes. In many cases
the brakes may have bcen responsible
for the mishap, but lack af attention
has been thc underlying cause of their
failure to work or defection at thc
critical moment. Brakes should be
kept in the best of condition, both sets
of them. They should bind tightly
when pressure is applied to them, and
be Irce and clear When the pressure Is
released. Should the brake band bind
when pressure ts taken from it. friction
Is produced and the iar runs with difficulty. Slipping brakes can be traced
to worn linings, grease on the shoes or
poor adjustment if the brake lining
worn out it should be replaced at
once, as it may fall to hold at the next
imergency sometimes the lining, if
not too much worn, can be put in good
condition again by taking up the turn
buckle, but a worn brake lining Is never
to be relied upon, should there be
grease between the brake .surfaces it
can be washed out with a little gasoline.
If the lining ls of leather neatsfoot oil
or castor oil muy be used to advantage.
Poor Pickup
Poor pickup, slow getaway and lack
of power in automobiles in most cases
is simply due to poor Ignition service
and Is no fault of the car. This is tlie
opinion of automotive engineers who
recommend that thc car's ignition system be checked regularly that necessary minor adjustments be made, to
insure carefree and economical operation. A check of thc ignition system
by a competent mechanic is necessary
at least every 10,000 miles, the engin-
ers say, to make sure that battery,
cables, breakers and spark plugs are
working satisfactorily.

"Tiie Farmer's Daily Diet," a
grandparent of "Poor Richard's

of thrift and honesty. Englishmen

Tuaeer's welcome advice, and have
celebrated joyously the "Twelve
Days of Christmas." exeenl during

pime of the Ironsides when such
festivities were frowned upon.
But it remained for Dicken« nnd
»\ushinirton Irving in America to
revive with their magic pens the
old Yuletide spirit. *
We on this continent have long
Cushioned our Christmas celebra
tions on the model of the old English Christmas, which we firii
memorably described in the writ
ings of Dickens and Irving. Uu:
during the cuming Christmas thi
festivities hallowed by six centuries of English tradition will conn
alive as never before; and fur tholi
setting they will have the city ol
Victoria, B.C., which has bee;
called "a corner of England on th'
Pacific coast." Here, in the Em

May Ask Canada to     j
Stop Liquor Export
WASHINGTON—Liquor smuggling :
over the Canadian border, in the opin-
lon of Prohibition Commissioner Dor-'
in, presents the most serious problem
in dry law enforcement to-day. To,
correct it he suggested a revision of
the Canadian liquor treaty to prevent I
Canada from clearing liquor cargoes
to this country. Dr. Doran made this,
statement before a House appropria-;
tions subcommittee at hearings on tha
treasury supply bill.
The commissioner said that notwith-;
standing the fact that the coast guard
has operated to break up nearby rum
rows, there is still a large movement of
liquor into the United States from
European ports, the French island of
St. Pierre, and from some Central
American and Mexican ports. The:
largest quantity, however, he said,
comes from Canada, and seven-eighths'
of it through the Detroit gateway.
While the amount of liquor moving
into the interior of this country has
been reduced, he said the present treaty
stipulating merely that Canada notify
this country of liquor ship clearances
from her ports, "affords a good sales
background for fake liquor labels, and
for fraudulent strip stamps, indicating
bottled in bond whisky, both in Canada and in the United States."

ten months of 1928 bring to light the
distressing and alarming fact that
during that period twenty-four people
lost their lives and sixty-four people
were more or less seriously injured
In collisions between automlhiles anil
(rains of the system in western Canada. In addition there were ninety-
throe other accidents in which no one
vas injured. The deaths and injuries
occurred in 47 accidents.
In eighteen of the twenty-four fatalities coroner's inquests completely
exonerated the railway company from
any blame. In the remaining six, the
facts were so apparent that no Inquests were considered necessary.
Thus, in no caso. was the railway company held  responsible.
Two people were killed and four Injured In one accident in which the
automobile ran Into the middle of a
train. In another instance ono man
lost bis life when an automobile ran
into tho tender of a locomotive. Of
the total UO accidents no less than
thirty-nine were caused by automobiles running into some part of n
train oilier thnn the head or rear end.
In one case a driver was seriously
hurt when he drove his automobile
Into the fifteenth car back of the locomotive.
