to tbe congregation for their support
and suggested that tho envelope system might be effectively used for this
purpose.
Mr. Hewitt spoke a few words

supporting this year but tbat the
thanks were due the Ladies Aid for
their tireless energy and good work

Instrumental in seeing that the present church was built. Mrs. MacDonald

Mr. MacDonald has been an active
member of the board of trustees for
many years. His wisdom in church
matters, accumulated by long experience, will he sadly missed. On behalf of tho congregation I wish to
present this token of appreciation to
you." Mr. Bannerman iben presented
Mr. and Mrs. MacDonald with a handsome silver tea service.
Mr. MacDonald said that no words
of his could express his appreciation
for this lovely gift. He felt that he
and Mrs. MacDonald had always tried
to do what they could for the church.
He said he had helped to clear the
land on which the church now stands
and that he had seen the church
through its prosperous and Us unpros-
perous years and had always felt that
the town could not get along without
the church.

DELEGATE'S REPORT
TO BE READY
SHORTLY
Mrs. Banks, Chairman Cumberland Board of School Trustees
To Give Impressions of Annual Convention.
Mrs. 'I*. B. Banks [(.formed us yesterday tlittt her report ot the recent
convention ot scliool trustees held at
Mouttclon would he ready shortly.
We hnd hoped lo puhllsh II this week
but as the chairman ot the local trustees hus been exceptionally busy since
her return, no time hns been found
to complete her report. Following is
n report of tlie Courtenay delegate-
Mr, Kerton and Is taken from the
columns of the Courtenay Free Press:
At the regular meeting of the Courtenay School Board on October 12th,
Trustee Fred W. Kerton gave his report of the Trustees' Convention at
Penticton. He said that as a result of
that large convention, he felt that
many of the problems that Rural
School Boards and Rural Municipal
School Boards were troubled with
would be partly solved. The resolutions submitted by the various boards
in most cases were unanimously supported, delegates from the larger cities
endeavoring to find a way to help the
rural communities by giving them
some of thc educational facilities that
abounded in the larger centres and by
so doing help to keep the people in
the country.
Courtenay s resolution regarding the
payment of fees by outside High School
pupils, in which they suggested the
cost of their education should be assessed on tlieir respective districts,
was unanimously supported, the president commenting that the resolution
had considerable merit.
Courtenay's other resolution regarding the dismissal of teachers by a unanimous vote of the board, failed to
pass, not from the feeling, as reported in press that it was against British justice, although one speaker did
speak to that ellect. but it appeared
to be a matter of small concern to the
assembled delegates, their construction
of the section dealing with the matter
being that teachers had a right on
notice of dismissal, to appeal in an
endeavor to find out if there were any
other reasons for the ''oard's action,
not necessarily for re-instatement.
Resolutions recommending Bible
reading in the schools and payment of
indemnities to trustees both went overboard. In the first resolution it was
contended that the home was the place
to tench biblical knowledge to the
child. As to payment of salaries to
trustees, this was thought to be against
the principles of the work.
The Comox Valley Association's resolution objecting to the continual
changing of text books, thus creating
considerable expense on the parents,
wos passed and if adopted by the Department of Education will be appreciated in a large number of homes.
Many other resolutions were passed
by the convention and a number also
fell by the wayside.
On Tuesday evening the convention
was honored by the presence of the
Lieutenant-Governor, together with
the Minister of Education. The minister had sat through the sessions of
the convention in an endeavor, he stat-
ted, to fully appreciate the resolutions
that would be passed on to his department for consideration. In an
Inspiring and instructive address he
told the convention of his concern for
rural conditions and how his department must work with other departments to bring to the families of the
rural workers some of the benefits
that the larger communities enjoyed.
His address was enthusiastically received.
The Lieutenant-Governor spoke to
the convention ond his address was
greatly appreciated,
It was decided to hold thc 1029 convention nt Nannlmo. Chilllwack and
Agassiz also extended invitations for
the convention, but Nanaimo was almost the unanimous choice.
Thc text of thc resolutions submitted by Courtenay follows:
Dismissal of Teachers
"That Section 133 lb) be amended
by Including thc following: That when
a Board of School Trustees ore unanimous in tlieir findings leading to a
teacher's dismissal, no appeal from
their decision shall be allowed."
Fees From  High  School  Pupils
"Whereas, in certain rural municipal school districts in this Province,
tlie municipal High School IsHhc only
means of providing High School education to pupils from outside school
districts adjacent to the municipal
scliool district; and
"Whereas, the municlpnl school
boards are permitted lo charge tuition
fees for admittance lo their High
School; and
"Whereas, in certain cases thc enforcement of the collection of these
fees would entail hardship on the
pupils and deprive them of the privilege of obtaining High School education;
"It is hereby resolved, thnt in llie
event of pupils from outside rural
school districts entering and becoming

niece of Mrs. Partridge of this city,

T1IK HOSPITAL
THERE aro a large number of persons literally
afraid of a hospital antl regard it a disgrace
to be sent to one. Yet, in fact, the hospital
is one of the most helpful and needed institutions
nf civilization, and the natural place of resort in
a severe illness, or in case an operation is to he
performed. A hospital is equipped so that eare
.md skilled attention can be given far better than
in one's own home. Trained nurses and experienced physicians antl surgeons know better what
we need in our sickness and pain than the loved
ones of our own family. The old unreasonable
fear of the hospital is a relic of the days when
limbs were sawed oil' without, anesthetics amid
unpleasant surroundings. All that is changed and
the hospital should be welcomed as an institution
of mercy, a home of rest antl cure.
To carry on the good work of a hospital, a lot
of money is required, as in addition to the cost
of salaries medicine, etc., equipment in the way
of furniture, blankets, sheets and a hundred and
one other things are needed, and in this latter
branch of the work, so far as the Cumberland
Hospital is concerned, the Ladies' Aid undertakes
lo provide. To help the ladies in their work, the
city council granted them permission to hold a
lag day in Cumberland on Saturday, October the
27th. We commend the object to all our readers
and friends and urge upon one and all to give
liberally on the 27th.
THERE is nothing that adds more to the appearance of a town than well-kept premises,
neat yards, clean gardens, beautiful lawns
and last but not least, a tidy looking fence. One
of the buildings of Cumberland, boasting at one
time a very nice fence, looks as though a cyclone
had struck it. We refer to the Memorial Hall
on Dunsmuir Avenue. Every night in the week,
numbers of youngsters can be seen playing around
the building, scratching their names on the arch
way, swinging on the chains between the concrete posts, filling the drinking fountain up with
all kinds of rubbish until at the present time the
Memorial Hall is an eyesore to the town. Can not
something be done to stop all this needless destructive play of the youngsters? There are
also other places in the town suffering the same
way. It is a lamentable fact that there are some
who take no pride at all in fixing anything up
about them and are envious of others that do,
and tlo not a little annoy them by little unkind
acts that tentl in some way to mar the tidiness of
another's premises. And right here we would
state that the habit some boys have of whittling
and defacing a yard fence needs a severe repri-
| mand. Nothing is more aggravating to a man
i after he places a neat fence around his yard and
paints it up and then go out some morning and
I find the boards shaved and notched up by a pocket
knife in the hands of some ruthless, thoughtless
boy, and oft-times done through spite or malicious
intent. Such things should not be and if they
continue to be, there should be some preventive
administered that would tend to make them not
to be. A word of reproof heeded in season oftimes
tends to peace.
The Memorial Arch in Cumberland to be disfigured the way it is and by thoughtless youngsters in most cases, is something the residents of
Cumberland can not be proud of.
Vancouver Island, for its size, contains the densest and
moist valuable stand of mature s >ft wood timber on the
earth's surface. It contained one-thirtieth of the world's
available supply in 1924.

intoxicated was sentenced to attend church for six months.

HEALTH SERVICE
of the
Canadian Medical Association
Questions concerning health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association, 184 College Street,
Toronto, will be answered hy letter. Questions as to diagnosis
and treatment will not he answered.
Clothing
The temperature ot the human body
remains at practically the same degree
as long us the individual Is well. This
is called the normal temperature.
Any change irom this normal teinper-
atue is a signal that there is something wrong with the human machine.
The temperature is controlled hy u
centre in the brain. When the body
becomes too warm, the ui'leries of
the skin are diluted, more blood Is
thus brought to the surface, perspiration increases nnd there follows a
cooling ot the body. It the body Is
cool, the arteries are contracted, perspiration is decreased and the heat of
the body conserved.
The food  we oat  is partly used to
keep up the heat of the body. In
Canada, it is necessary to wear sufficient clothing most of the year to
conserve our body heat and to maintain the normal temperature of the
body.
The problem of what clothing to
wear is made difficult because we go
from the heated indoors to the cold
outdoors. When Indoors, we should
not wear the clothing required to keep
us warm outdoors. Under Buch conditions, the individual perspires freely, the skin and clothing becorale
damp and, as a result, he is chilled
when he goes* out.
Avoid over-clothing when indoors.
Children should not go to school wearing two sets of underwear and several sweaters. Warm schools and
offices are usually at summer temperature. The warm extra clothing
should be kept for outdoors.
Proper clothing will do much to
help iu maintaining physical fltneas
and to prevent colds in winter.

INSIDE INFORMATION
Oue of our good friends was telling on the street yesterday a conversation be chanced to hear between a young
boy and a man who believes in Christian Science. It appears the scientist came across a small boy sitting under
an apple tree doubled up with pain. "My little man," he
said, "what is tiie matter?" "I ate some green apples,"
moaned the boy. "and, oh, how 1 ache!" "You don't
ache" announced the follower or Mrs. Eddy. "You only
think so." The boy looked up in astonishment and then
replied m a most positive manner, "that's nil right, you
may think so, but   I've got  Inside information."

Editor   of the Cumberland Islander
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE
Sir,—Owing to the closing of Deep
Water Bay to purse-seining this season
there are more grilse in the waters
around Cape Mudge than have been
for years. These grilse are young cohoes and springs, but most of them are
cohoes.
We fishermen were looking forward
witli fond anticipation to a good run
of flsh next year. Now comes the disquieting news that Deep Bay is again
open to purse-seining, and most of
these grilse will be caught in the seines,
killed and wastefully destroyed. Who
is responsible for this base surrender of
the country's interest? Wc have been
informed that our member of parliament disclaims all responsibility and
shifts it on to the shoulders of the fish
ery department. But the officials of
that department also pass the buck
When wc appealed to them nnd protested against the opening of Deep
Water Bay to seines they said: "There
is a higher power than we are!" Now
we want to know who this "higher
power" is that dominates the government machine and dates to flout the
public opinion and treat it with contempt. Is this "higher power" the
cannery  men's association?
Will our estimable representative,
the fishermen's doughty champion, be
kind enough to stand forth and enlighten us with regard to this question?

■This selling was an exact duplication of old Posl Duray which was
built a hundred years ago In Western Canada when the Hudson Boy
Company had trading posts linked
oss the North American continent.
The setting consists of the post office, general store .church, tavern,
dunce hull, a number of small shops
ami two blocks of cottages which
were inhabited by Ihe principal ^el-
tie rs. *\%
Whilo a purl of the action wus film-
!'il aboul this post hundreds of thrilling scenes were filmed along the
Feather and Merced Rivers in Yose-
mite National Park.
Joan Crawford lias tho title role
if the film piny, which is coming to
the Ilo-Ilo this week end. and James
Murray has the leading mule romantic role. The picture was produced
for Metro-Gold wyn-Mayer by Luc tan
Hubbard and the nisi ulso includes
House Peters, Gibson Gowland, O.
Cooper. Polly Moran, Crelghton Hale.

BASKETBALL LEAGUE
MAY BE FORMED
An effort is being made to form a
basketball league to play league
games during the winter. A number
of the young people in town are making plans to organize teams to play
the game for the excellent sport and
exercise which U affords. Moat of I
those Intending to piastre inexperienced in the art <>T Tiaslfetball~"ancl
would be very glad of advice and assistance given by auy old-timers at
the game. Now is your chance, if you
know anything about the game, to
help some of Cumberland's weighty
maidens to reduce and to put some !
pep and vim into those who need '.!.
We hear that several teams will enter the league if one is formed. They
are High School Girls' team. Gedunk-
er Girls' team and it Is hoped that the
old P.D.Q. team will reorganize. The
boys in town bave several teams
known as the High School, Ex-High,
Cougars and the Hoarding House
team.
Why not help tbe young people to
organize a league soon and work out
a schedule of play? It la hoped that
the old and young will patronize all
league gamea this winter and help
to make tlie playing of this game a
successful undertaking.
but the consolidation which he had
planned did not become a fact until
many years after his death.
Vancouver Island is the cradle of
the coal industry of Western Canada.
The Hudson's Hay Company brought
coal miners from Scotland to work
the mines at Suquash, so named from
the Indian expression "the rock that
burns." The mine was operated as
early as 18.18, but it was not until the
early fifties' that coal was discovered
at Nanaimo aud the industry became
commercially important. A mine waa
opened In ISIiS near Nanaimo, is still
operated, nnd is the oldest operating
mine in Canada. It was the Wellington seam, discovered in 1871, which
made a fortune for the Dunsmuir
family.
The coal Industry of Vancouver Is
land has not been so brisk in recent
years owing to competition of foreign
fuel oil and other causes. These conditions were responsible for the recent
taking over of the Western Fuel Corporation of Canada, by the Canadian
Collieries   I Dunsmuir).   Limited.
ASK ORGANIZATION
IN COAL INDUSTRY
Lord  Abercumvay  Compares  British
Lack of Cohesion with tier-
mau Efficiently
The world fuel conference passed a
resolution for the adoption of an international nomenclature for a uniform classification. In this connection
.Lord Aberconway said that Great Britain had no coal Industry organization such as existed in Germany. The
coal trade there was In a position
of comparative security, with regulated output ami prices, aud associations to ably deal with mine owners
and coal producers. In Britain, on j
the other baud, producing was far in
excess of requirements. "Our system
is bad," Lord Aberconway continued.
"The coal is owned by landownerb
who compel the collieries to work the
coal mines, whether ihero is profit or
loss. We spend huge sums equipping
first-class collieries, then we produce
more coal than we can sell. We are I
all struggling to sell our coal, even I
at a loss, nnd I deplore the fact that I
a nation so intelligent as ours should ,
not see the necessity for complete or- i
gaiifzatlon."

Over Production Is
Responsible For
Depression
Canadian Coal Trade Discussed
By   Dominion   Deputy
Minister of Mines
Toronto.—An earnest plea for
wholehearted and sympathetic cooperation of the consumer in the greater use of Canadian coal, was made
here this week by Chas. Camaell, deputy miniater of mines for the dominion, in an address before tbe Toronto Canadian Club. Greater fuel independence, increased work for Canadian coal miners and more satisfactory returns for those who have their
money invested in Canadian minea
would reault from a generous public
response, Mr. Camsell declared. He
emphasized the fact that the difficulties of the industry in the Dominion
were common to practically all coal
producing countries in the world. Previous to the constitution of the Dominion Fuel Board in 1922, the primary problem had been that of the consumer, in recent years the industry
had undergone a marked change, with
a result that today the problem was
that of the producer.
Anthracite Being Imported
Mr. Camsell Btressed that previous
to 1922 there had been no importation of anthracite from Great Britain.
Since the inauguration of this movement it had developed rapidly until
last year about 135 ships had entered
the port of Montreal carrying more
than three-quarters of a million tons
of anthracite. Thia ls not, as haa been
described in some quarters, a transient move but one that is giong to
he permanent, because it Is based on
economic principles, the speaker aaid.
Increased efficiency in the use of coal,
increased development of hydro-electric energy and increased uae of fuel
oil were given by Mr. Camsell aa three
fundamental factors contributing to
the aggravation of the present problem. These facts alone, he estimated
had resulted in displacement of millions of tons of coal ln Canada and
the United States.
Over Production Throughout World
There was also a serious factor of
over-production. The United States
industry today, said the speaker
geared up to produce a maximum of
750,000,000 tons of coal annually,
while the average yearly demand was
500,000.000 tons. The British coal industry was capable of producing 330,-
000,000 tons, whereas only 260,000,-
000. tons could be sold. The reault,
he said, was price cutting and financial loss to the pioducer as well as
unemployment of thousands of mlnera
An analogue situation prevailed in
Canada. The coal industry ln Alberta was equipped to produce fifteen
million tons annually with a market
for several million tons. In Nova Scotia the capacity to produce was thirty
per cent, greater than the market requirements, while New Brunswick's
capacity to produce exceeded the
market by nearly fifty per cent.

School Chums Practice With Old
Pistol; Disaster Results
Two Cumberland School boys, afler
school hours on Tuesday afternoon
adjourned to llie old city dump to
practice with a revolver of ancient
pattern, said to be a .22, with a nail
stuck in for a firing pin. The boys
are both well known throughout the
district, their parent a having lived ;
here for a great many years. Irvine
Banks, son of Mr. and Mrs. T. R
Banks was Uie proud owner of the
pistol and ti was tbe practice ot
young Banks and his chuni, Clinton
Harrison, son of Mr. and Mrs. P. P.
Harrison, to try the pistol out. Tuesday afternoon, in some manner yet
not explained, Clinton shot his pa'.
Several previous attempts had been
made lo Rre the weapon without result, but on Tuesday to the consternation of both boys and whilst young
Harrison bad the pistol it went off.
Banks Is said to have exclaimed "why
you hit me then." Clinton Harrison
ran to one of the bouses close by and
notified the people that he had shot
his chum. No time was lost and Dr.
Hicks responded to t> r -call, removing the injured boy to the local hospital, In addition to the wound, young
Banks was suffering from shock and
it waa not until Wednesday morning
that an ex-ray picture was taken and
the bullet located between the heart
and the liver and about one-bald inch
from the back bone. His condition is
considered serious but. at the present
time not critical. The injured boy is
not ln a fit condtion to tell much
about the accident yet and young Harrison was so prostrated tbat he was
a patient at tbe hospital until Wednesday night when he was allowed to go
home.
Harry Jackson, the well known lo-
oal  comedian, athlete  and  gymnastic
instructor caused some of his friends
j and his family a great deal of anxiety

became anxious and a few friends and
close acquaintances organized searc'.i
parties   and   scoured   the   hills   surrounding Cumberland with no result,
Early  Monday  morning  more  search
parties  went oul,  some up  the  trail
behind   Chinatown   and   two   parties
going up Puntledge lake.   One of the
parties decided to go up by No. I Dam

the   genial   Harry   coming   down   the
. creek, apparently none the worse for
I bis night in the woods.   Those who
know   Harry   Jackson,   however,   felt
no alarm at bis absence, ns barrin;;
I an accident he ia a man well able to
take care of hlmaelf.    As  Harry put
] It, "I did not mind being out all night
j but I was worried about the wife aad
I family and I sure am damned hungry."

with ihe team In quest of Dominion
honors.
Solution of Problem Offered
Depression of the market has been
a severe blow to the coal producing
industry generally and a great deal
of thought is now given to rectification. Mr. Camsell aaid. As a cure for
all these Ilia, plans are being proposed to put Into effect In Great Britain,
United States and Germany. Solutions are expected from application
of what is known as rationalization
mechanization or nationalization. None
of these methods are yet being applied
to Canada, thc speaker said, but If
applied they must be done by (he hi
dustry itself, The government can
not help very much.

PUBLICITY. PAIS HUGE DIVIDENDS
IT IS conservatively estimated thai tourists from the
United Stales contribued twelve millions of dollars to
the merchants and business men ol" British Columbia
during the past season. This figure is based upon the
number of automobiles which entered this province through
twenty-one ports of entry ami assuming thai each passenger remained only three days iu the province. It does
not take into consideration tourists from Ea-siern Canada,
or the Old Country, or those who arrived at our Pacific
ports by steamer.
There are two magnets attracting tourists to UritMh
Columbia. First in importance comes the Vancouver Publicity Bureau, under the capable direction of Charles II.
Webster, and secondly ihe Victoria ami Island bureau
under the guiding hand of Oeorge T. Warren. Both are
proven salusinen of highest proficiency . They are staunch
believers in ihe slogan that "It pays to advertise," Advertising British Columbia's attractions has brought, our
merchants many millions that would not otherwise have
been available. And while these two publicity bureaus
bave borne the financial brunt of attracting this great
army or tourists, wc in North Vancouver und adjacent
municipalities have received many benefits that cannot he
figured In the dollar and cents column.
In the recent booklet of views depicting the beauty
spots adjacent to Greater Vancouver, the North Shore
takes a leading role. There are at least ten photographs
breathing the message that one musi come to the North
Shore before one may appreciate the real attractions which
greater Vancouver holds  for nature lovers.
During tbe past year the Vancouver Publicity Bueau
bas spent approximately eighty-eight thousand dollars, an
insignificant figure compared to the benefits whicb have
resulted. That the budget of the greater Vancouver Publicity Bureau was wisely administered may be better understood when it is pointed out that more tban seventy-two
per cent,  of the total   was  expended  in   newspaper  and
magazine advertising.   Administration costs were kept to
the minimum.
Tbe value of tourist traffic to Canada during the past
season is estimated to amount io more (ban a half billion
of dollars. And the more the attractions of Greater Vancouver are broadcast to tbe tourist world, Ihe greater will
be tbe benefits. A community should not stint tbe amount
allocated to the Publicity Bureau, Careful administration
has made it tlie axis of one of British Columbia's biggest
industries -Th'e  Review", North   Vancouver.
1TTS UnriGUATlOiN ON    111 SLNKSS BASIS
ORGANIZATION of the Colonization Finance Corporation put a business complexion ou the immigration
question. Tlie problem of finding successful farmers
for the millions of acres id' idle lands in this country is
more likely to be solved if attacked from a business point
of view than ir left to a bureau of ihe government.
The initial plan of the Colonization Finance Corporation
and an Indication of tbe broad Bcope of ihe enterprise, are
outlined in an adjoining column, 'fhe reader first of all
is likely to he struck with the fact thai tbe Immigrant
is to he assisted and encouraged after be lands on these
shores as well as when be Is negotiating for his passage
from the laud of bis birth. Secondly, il will be observed
lhat this plan which, If successful, will be of great benefit
to the country and will enable the trust and loan companies to liquidate resources which for some years have
been tied up iu Weaicrn lauds.
Placing tlie Immigrant on a farm ami helping him finance
improvements and the purchase of equipment does not. of
course, assure that be will be a successful farmer, or even
a good citizen. But with reasonable care exercised in
the selection of immigrants overseas and a policy of not
trying to make an agriculturist out of a man who has no
Inclination in tbat direction, the percentage of failure In
this scheme should be small. The Canada Colonization
Association, a C.P.R. subsidiary, and certain other agencies
can be trusted to exercise discretion in ihe type of immigrant which they would place on the land.
National prosperity, of course, is tbe greatest encouragement to immigration and il is reasonable to expect that
there will be an ever widening ilow of immigration as
there are continual practical demonstrations that this is
a land of opportunity and achievement, Tbe artisan and
city dweller type of immigrant may succeed without assistance, but it takes some capital to begin farming on
the prairies or eleswbere and there is ample justification
for a plan which gives the newcomer u reasonable amount
of assistance at the beginning of his career.

HEALTH SERVICE
of the
Canadian Medical Association
Questions concerning health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association, 184 College Street,
Toronto, will be answered by letter. Questions as to diagnosis
and treatment will not be answered.
Hardening of the Arteries
The arteries are normally elastic.
Control of blood pressure is exercised,
first of all. by the heart, or pump,
through the force and frequency of
Its beat; and, secondly, by the arteries
through their expansion or contraction, which abilities are very large,
such ns tbose In the nbdonien, and If
they relax, they are capable of holding all the blood in tbe body. Sometimes they do this, with tho result that
the person faints because all the
blood Is drained away from the brain.
As we get older the elasticity of
tiie arteries is gradually lost. It Is
said, with much truth, that a man is
as old as his arteries. When the loss
of elasticity is rapid, premature old
age results. Along with the loss of
elasticity, there ls a thickening aud
hardening of the walls of the arteries. They become more or less brittle, and break comparatively easily;
the calibre becomes smaller, on account of the thickening, and this
tends to raise the Mood pressure
above normal.
We do not know haw hardening of
the arteries ean be completely controlled. We do know, however, what,
in many cases, will check the development of the condition. We know that
the absorplfon of poiBons Trom diseased teeth, tonsils or other pnrts ot
ibe body must be stopped. We know
thai overstrain, both physical and
mental, must be avoided. Wo know
tbat the condition of all systems of
i lie body must be watched and remedied when necessary, because if one
part of the body is diseased or ls not
functioning properly, a strain is
thrown thereby upon all the other
parts. Including the arteries and otlier
parts of the arterial system.

DISTRIBUTING STATION
PHANTOM OPERATED
An electric distributing station that
will utlmately be able to supply power
sufficient to light the homes of approximately 300,000 families and will
be operated withoul a human being
inside its walls, was put into service
on Monday. September 17th, at 23Sth
Street ami Spuytcn Road, New York
City, by the New York Edison Co.
This manlcss station, one of the
largest in the world to be operated
ment is functioning properly.
It will be necessary for human beings to visit the station only once a
week to Inspect the apparatus. A
complete burglar alarm system on
windows and doors mid other places
will  protect  Ihe building electrically.
This control system was devised by
the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company and adapted for
the New York Edison Company by
the Edison Company's own engineers,
without a single attendant, will be
controlled from another station more
than three miles away. The distant
operator can close or open any switcn
placing in service the various transformers antl circuits in the new station, simply by pressing keys which
send over wires electric impulses of
the dot and dash system used In telegraphy. Also he will receive automatic signals from the station which
will   inform  him   whether  tbe  equlp-
