Chen Mee Committed For
Trial At Spring Assizes
Chen Mee, charged with the murder of Chan Fong Mun at the
Pekin Chop Suey Houe, No. 36, Chinatown, was today brought
before stipendiary magistrate John Conway.
Mr. R. Strachan and Mr. Norbert Schwartz told of the plans and
photographs which were exhibited.
Dr. G. K. MacNaughton was the flrst witness. He repeated all
the evidence which was published in last week's edition of the
Islander. In addition to this, he stated that when he attended the
deceased, Chan Fong Mun, the latter was without shoes and socks
and estimated the age of deceased at about 50 years. When questioned by Corporal Mathews he said that the knife with which Mun
was slain must have been driven with great force in order to penetrate four thicknesses of clothing and then inflict such a wound,
and also the victim must have been either lying on his left side or
in an upright positon, in ths case, being struck from behind, providing the murderer was a right handed man.
The next witness Chin Moon also repeated the evidence he gave
at the Inquest. When asked if he was-,
the only person ln the room beside
the accused and deceased, he replied
in the affirmative but said that it was
possible for others to be bidden in tbe
house unknown to him. However, he
did not think there was any other
person In the house. He said that
Chang Fong Mun was approximately
63 or 64 years old, and had a wife
living in China. He noticed that thc
deceased was without shoes and socks
On being questioned as to what the
accused did to earn a living, he said
that he had been mining and also
on the railroad but did not know
what the accused was doing directly
previous to the murder. When asked
If he recognized a grey sweater
which was produced, he stated that
he had noticed it lying on the bed and
had seen deceased wearing It quite
often. Moon told that he had known
the accused for about ten years, and
that Mee used to be contractor In the
mine until about five or six years ago.
Dong Wong the next witness said
that he was coming along the street

province, the provincial public works
department Is commencing extensive
research into the value of powdered
coal as a fuel. Under plans announced by Hon. W. H. Sutherland, minister
of puhlic works, two of the largest
heating plants operated by the government, one ln Victoria aud another
in one of the Interior government institutions, will be converted Immediately for the use of powdered coal. If
this experiment proves a success, it
Is believed it will cause many Industries to turn to coal and away from
oil, chief cause for the depression In
the coal industry here.
BUTTER FUEL
AMI CHEAPER.
Engineers of the public works department already have carried out Investigations Into the use of powdered
coal In othor places and are convinced
that it offers hope of a real solution
of thc coal Industrie's difficulties in
this province. Privately owned industries which have een burning powdered coal ln place of oil have found
that it Is a betler fuel and far cheaper
than the imported article, the department was Informed.
"We arc going to try out British Columbia coal  in  powdered  form  In  a
systematic  way  so  that the results
may he really useful to Industries in I
this   province."    Dr.   Sutherland   ex-1
plained.   "If our tests are successful,.
I believe many privately owned con-;
cems   will  adopt   coal   which   iu   Its'
powdered   form   is  said  to  be  more
efficient than oil and just as easy to
handle.   In addition It is a great deal I
cheaper than oil.
MAY RESUSCITATE
LANGUISHING INDUSTRY.
"The general use of powdered coal
in industrial plants and in heating
plants of big buildings," the minister
added, "would go a long way towards
putting our coal mining industry on
its feet, as it has suffered most of late
years through the importance of oil
from the United States. The mines
here are able to dispose of their first
class coal without much difficulty, but
the lower grades are glut on the market. It is these lower grades that are
used in the manufacture of powdered
coal, and it is their disposal which
offers the chief difficulties to the mine
operators."

GETTING MARRIED
The writer attended a wedding ceremony the
other day. The bride was beautiful and wore a
flowing white veil that established an air of hazy
enchantment about her. That's the way brides
should look. The groom was a good scout. That's
what grooms should be. And may they ever be
happy!   That's that.
Before pronouncing the final words which made
this couple man and wife, the officiating clergyman said: "Marriage symolizes a spiritual union
more than it does a material or physical agreement. It signifies a community of the soul and
the mind more than that of the body." And there
you ihave much to think about.
We are sill born and we all die, but we don't
ail get married. Many repair from marriage
because they cannot find their affinity of mind or
soul. Others because they cannot find sufficient
physical attraction.      Some unfortunately, be-*
cause they have a conscience and realize that
their economic or physical condition is a drawback
which they cannot overcome.
Is it not a fact, however, that the physical
aspect predominates in the amrriage of today?
Does not the average groom select his bride because she has a beautiful face and figure, and
vice versa?
Or, do you think, in most marriages, prospective brides and grooms take into careful account
the cast of each other's mind and the nature of
each other's soul.
Because this clergyman was absolutely right.
It is only the mind and the soul of another person
that you can depend on. Physical beauty is sure
to pass away. The ideal physical beauty, sung
by poets for countless ages, depicted by painters,
perpetuated in marble by th great sculpters and
exalted by all great riters, is th beauty of youth.
And that beauty, in its very nature, must fade
with each passing hour.
But the beauty of mind can grow. "Agei
cannot wither nor custom stale its infinite var-i
iety." And the beauty of the soul shines more j
radiantly with the passing of time, just as thei
priceless pearl grows more lustrous with age.        !
Those who contemplate marrying would do well i
to heed the words of this clergyman and give,
more thought to those qualities than to the phys- j
ical attractions of heir beloved. They provide l
a firmer, more las and happier basis of married
life.
And now having written this we are going to
take home a bunch of flowers for the missus, j

I at the passing of the Rev.E. H. Nunns.
I Though not able to take an active

* Robathan said, greatly felt the
loss of that kindly and excellent advice which Mr. Nunns was always
so ready to give in times of need.
Of 1928 Mr. Robathan spoke with
! hope. "We are all members of one
! body, each having our own particular
: piece of work to do. Let us not forget this duty, but all strive to do our
best." He thanked all who had so

9000 MILE TRIP
WITHOUT REPAIRS
Ray Dahlinger on the last lap of a
9000 mile trip- that circled the United
States passed through Ford, Ontario
a short ago in a new ford car. Twenty-one days ago he left Detroit aud
travelled Westward to SanFrancisco,
then on down to Los Angeles and up
through the south-eastern states to
Toledo and from there to New York
City and back to Detroit via Niagara
Falls and Windsor. Mr, Dahlinger
has driven every mile of the way, using representatives of tbe Ford Motor
Company only as guides. He pointed
out that the water ln the radiator
was the same as that placed there in
San Francisco. Severe storms were
encountered in New Mexico, New York
State and some rough going between
Hamilton and Windsor, but the entire
trip was unmarred by accidents or
repairs.
Mr. Dahlinger stated that his longest session at the wheel was 29 hours
without sleep. Between New York
und Syracuse he had to contend with
a severe sleet storm that made the
roads a sheet of Ice. In New Mexico
his greatest obstacle was a blinding
snow storm and in Arizona the roads
were dry and covered with sharp
rocks, the car driven by this energetic pilot is a standard Tudor sedan
that left the assembly line in Dearborn and started immediately on Its
transcontinental trip. Ford Officials stated tbat no special significance
was attached to this run.
tional Park, Alberta, which, with an
area of more than 5,000 square miles
is the largest national playground in
the world. The name of this river
is the Maligne—French for "bad"—
and given to it— because where It
joins the Athabaska there was a ford
which was much feared by tbe trappers and voyageurs of early days m
western history.
Tbe Maligne Itiver finds its source
miles from Its confluence wilh the
Athabaska, Maligne Lake is nbout
fourteen miles lung, more than a mile
wide and the largest glacial fed body
of water in iln> Canadian Rockies.
From ihis hike the ,Maligne river
Hows swiftly down-hill for about fourteen miles to empty Into Medicine
Lake, a body of water four miles long
and from a half to-a mile wide. Tbls
lake, in some places reaches a depth
of 150 feet.
Ou: of this lake tbere Is no known
outlet. At the foot of ll and for a
mile or so below there Is the dry
course of what was once a river. But
this bed is dry and there Is neither
sight nor sound of water In or near it.
After about a mile, a trickle of water
makes Its appearance and within a
comparatively short distance a river
ls once more flowing through the valley. This is again the Maligne river
although from this point to the Atba-
uska, the volume of water ls never
ns great as that which flows Into Medicine Lake. A mile above Athabaska River, the Maligne hurls Itself
down into a great canyon, hundreds
at feet deep and, In places, less than
-i yard wide at the top.

New York, Jan. 7.—Completing the
United State Shipping Board's lirst
test of pulverized coal as a fuel for

Power and Transportation
CONFERENCE
Dealing with Profitable Farming, Industrial Power Us es, and New Transportation Achievements.
Gaiety Theatre, Courtenay, Monday, January 16th
The steamship Mercer is one of the
first vessels to use the new fuel. It
has beeen equipped with a $36,500
power plant designed for powdering
coal and burning It.
Tests of the new fuel were made by
the Shipping Board in trial runa from
Baltimore to New York and tn New-
York Harbor, according to the Marine
Review for December.
No appreciable dust, dirt noise or
congestion was noted in the trials
while an even steam pressure of 210
pounds was kept with only two or
three boilers in operation, said the
article.
Coal Is carried by gravity to three
pulverizing machines each capable of
crushing 3,000 pounds per hour. The
fuel in its powdered form, is blown
through pipes to the furnaces.
1   Track Gambling
If the Liberal government of this
Province has no sins to account for
other than that ot encouraging little
respect for its own laws, and profiteering on race track gambling, which
is contrary to ihe Federal Criminal
Code, this sin is big enough and has
brought disgrace enough upon the
Province lo brand the policy of pro-
liteerlng ou booze and gambling with
FAILURE!—ln   large  letters.
Organized race track gambling,
wltb the government sitting pretty
over the kitty and getting a rake-off
on every bet made, cannot and does
not make race track gambling any
more moral than It used to be when
the ruke-off was not divided with the
Government., Becaues the Govern
ment agent sits iuto the game and
strokes the kitty does not alter the
fact that playing the ponies Is a losing game. Four million three hundred thousand dollars went Into the
cofiers ot the gamblers last year an
increase of $604,845 over 1926.

A Gradely Prayer
(These lines, which St. Martin's Review ascribes to Teddy Ashton, are
taken from a copy hanging on the
wall of a country Inn in Lancashire.)
Give us, Lord, a bit o' sun,
A bit o' work and a bit o' fun;
Give us aw in th' struggle and splutter
Eaur daily bread and a bit o' butter;
Give us health, eaur keep to make
An" a bit to spare for poor folks' sake;
Give us sense, for we're some of us
duffers,
An' heart to feel for aw that suffers;
Give us, too, a bit of a song,
An' a tale aud a book to help us along
An' give us our share o' sorrow's
lesson,
That we may prove heaw grief's a
blessin'.
Give us, Lord, a chance to be
EJaur gradely best, brave, wise and
free,
Kaur gradely best for eaursels and
others,
Till aw men lam to live as brothers.

Birthday Party
Jolly Affair
The home of .Mrs. O. Gibson wus
the scene of a very jolly birthday
party on Friday evening last, when
a number ol the young friends of Master Kenneth Gibson gathered to honor him on the occasion of his eighth
birthday. Mrs., Gibson agisted by
Miss Hazel Gibson and Miss Margaret Gibson served dainty irelresh-
ments, the feature of the occasion
being a magnificent birthday cake.
After refreshments the guests indulged in a number of games and
guessing contests, causing much
merriment. Perhaps the most fun
of the evening was otained from a
game known as "Dressing Sambo"
this game being entered into by the
guests with a great deal of enjoyment.

Feather Pushers
The members of tho various Badminton Clubs throughout the District have given the courts the"go
by" for the past few weeks, due no
doubt to the holidays. Tuesday
night of this week, however, |j&w
many more members in action, and
Interest appears to be once more very
keen for this popular winter indoor
game. Talk at the present time centres round the annual district tournament. It is expected that a start wil
be made much earlier this year than
has been the case In the past years.
Also it is predicted that a new system
will be adopted, which will call for
the speeding up of the tournament.
The ladder tournament at the Imperial courts shows Mr. Tom Graham
heading the men's singles section with
Miss B. Bickle heading the ladies'.
Some real good games have been played ln this tournament and a few ot
this year's players are making quite
a good showing. It would not be a
bit of a surprise to read of last year'B
winners in the district tournament
being defeated by some of the younger  members.
