Miss Dot. Gillespie, a native daughter of Cumberland, was married on

1903, who will extend to her best
wishes for her future happiness.. The

Uniting two of Vancouver's prominent families the wedding solemnized on Tuesday evening, when Dorothea Reed (Dot.), daughter of Dr.
and Mrs. James A. Gillespie, became
the bride of Mr. Walter Thomas Patrick of Montreal, son of Mr. and Mrs.
F. T. Patrick of this city. Autumn
Flowers and leaves in all their gorgeous colorings were used in profusion to decorate Canadian Memorial
Chapel, where the ceremony took
plaCe. Tall standards of bronze shaded chrysanthemums interspersed with
red and brown maple leaves stood on
the chancel steps, while zinnias, gladioli and chrysanthemums in the same
tones were entwined with greenery
along the altar rail. Graceful palms-
lent an air of stateliness to the scene.
Rev. G. O. Fallis officiated while
the wedding music was played by
Mr. Welton, nnd during the signing
of the register Mr. Harry Grant rendered a vocal solo. The groom waa
supported by Mr. C. H. Corkum, and
ushering the guests to their seats,
which were marked off with gold
chrysanthemums tied with gold ribbon, were Mr. Harry Alder, Mr. Gordon Gillespie, Mr. A1 lister Maclnnes
and Mr. Max Ray.
The bridal party made a charming
picture ns they moved slowly up the
aisle, the ushers being followed by
two flower girls, little Miss Jacqueline Skinner and Miss Francos Patrick, after whom came the matron of
honor, Mrs. J. W. MeCuteheon, and
the four bridesmaids, Miss Aileen
Hall, Miss Muriel Munro, Miss Marjory Shornoy and Miss Gladys Chlsholm. Given in marriage by her
father, the bride was lovely in her
graceful wedding gown of eggshell
transparent velvet. Fashioned with
a long train lined with matching taffeta this model gown featured a high
waiRt, the neck line being outlined
with applique d'Alencon lace, Hot"
shirred sleeves reached to her wrist

The Wanderers soccer team met

first class players.

shoes in the same shude completed
her costume, The bridesmaids' dresses
made on the same lines as thut of thu
matron of honor were of transparent
velsut of yet a deeper shade, bordering on orange. They wore similar
French felt hats to match trimmed
with brown velvet ribbon, while then-

to harmonize with their costumes,
and they carried bouquets of gold

Of Unemployed
During the past week over 100 unemployed registered at the office of
the Islander and nearly all are residents of Cumberland alone, That
some measure of relief work will
have to be undertaken hy the govern-
en in this district is apparent to the
casual observer. But had the powers
that he heard some of the unemployed stating their case to the Islander
scribe, relief work would not be delayed one more week. Without trying to pry into the affairs of some
of the unemployed registering, we
soon discovered that some families
are in actual want, and before many
days nre passed something will have
to be done. It is not right and proper that wc should go about shouting
about dull times, but we cannot close
our eyes to the fact thnt in this little
burg there is a great deal of unemployment—over one hundred in a
city that only comprises about 40
acres. In conversation with one man
we learned thnt he had not worked
very steady, he hnd four children and
a wife depending on him and would
be very grateful if we could let him
know as early us possible when this
road work was going to start up. Ho
was not pleading for something for
nothing, all he wanted was u chance
to go to work. There ore others like
him. Another man who came in all
the way from some place near Courtenay said he had had a very pool-
summer, he had a wife and three
children to support and whilst not
putting up a hurd luck story we
gleaned from him thut his supplies
at home in the wny of foodstuffs was
very low. In fact the fnmily only
had enough flour to make one more
hatch of bread. With emphasis this
man said, "I do not want to go to
the store and ask for credit, and if
this road work will only start up
soon I shall bo all right.' That the
government will do something pretty
soon in providing work on the roads
is un established fact, hut governments move slowly and in the meantime the plight of some of our follow
citizens is becoming serious,
The Cumberland and Courtenay
hoards of trade arc doing their utmost to get the government to speed
up the work and Dr. MacNaughton,

The annual whist drive and dance
of the Cumberland Centre, St. John
Ambulance Association held in the
Ilo-Ilo Halt on Friday night attracted a large number of people. Thirty-
two tables of whist were in play und
many more came in for the dance
later in the evening. Winners at
cards were announced as ladies' tirst

Gent's first Mr. Tom Hrown, second
Mr. J. S. Brown. Immediately following the cards, refreshments were
served and after all had been satisfied the president of the Centre, Mr.
Arthur Watson welcomed all there
thnt evening and briefly outlined the
activities of the Cumberland centre
during the season. He then culled
upon Mr. T. R. Jackson, district inspector of mines and a strong supporter of St. John Ambulance wor!:.
He congratulated the local officials
on having had such a successful sea
son and also congratulated the students on the very good work accomplished. Seventy-four students presented themselves for examination,
seventy-one gaining passes, which,
said Mr. Jackson, was a record to be
proud of. He then presented the certificates to the successful candidates
and prizes to those candidates gaining the highest marks. Mr. Jackson
also presented handsome and well
fitted dressing eases to Dr. G. K.
MacNaughton and Dr. E. R, Hicks
and to Mr. A. J. Taylor a Remington
portable typewriter for their faithful
services as examiners and'instructors

Of Consumer
Means Removal
Of Concessions
Ottawa, September 30. (Special to
, the Islander).—Whatever political
l viewpoint one may hold the fact re-
' mains that political history was mado
; in Canada within less than two
: months.
| On July 28th the Conservative
'■ party was returned to power. On
j August 7th Mr. Bennett took office
I as Prime Minister and by September 22nd Parliament had been con-
■ vened and prorogued aftor putting
| through the most radical tariff re-
f vision since Sir John A. MacDonald
I brought down his "National Policy"
| 51  years ago.
Not only were upwards of 130
items affecting Canadian key industries dealt with; the whole basis of
valuation for customs purposes was
revised along lines which, if deemed
expedient, permit the Government to
control imports to an unprecedented
The other business of the session
was the voting of $20,000,000 to be
used for public works and other purposes to provide immediate and emergent relief for unemployment
throughout Canada.
Under ordinary circumstances the
tariff legislation put through would
have kept parliament in session several months. In view, however, of
the character of tho session and of
Premier Bennett's determination not
to leave for the economic and constitutional conferences of the Empire
in London until Parliament was prorogued thc opposition accepted Mr.
Bennett's promise that adequate opportunity would be given next session for discussion of the individual
items. Hence less than five days of
debate sufficed to get the measure
Such revisions as were made effective are expected to provide immediate employment in Canada for between 30,000 nnd 50,000 people and
the latter figure is held to be moderate by Conservative Ministers. Mr.
Bennett lold the House that he proposes at the next session to bring
down a complete revision of the tariff, a task which will be almost ten
times as large as thnt which he presented this year.
Jn the revision which went through
practically every change was upwards. That trend will probably
hold through the general revision,
though a great many items—where-
he does not believe goods can be
economically manufactured in Canada—present duties will be lowered
or removed.
Machinery has been set in motion
to keep a very careful check both
upon unemployment in Canada and!
upon prices charged consumers fori
products affected by tariff changes J
just made.
Mr, Bennett's most Important announcement to Partfan ment was the
pledge of industries affected that lho
consumer would not be taken advantage of by higher duties. In fact
many manufacturers promises that
ncreased production would mean not
only more work, but would reduce
the overhead on goods and permit of
reduced selling prices. To this announcement Mr. Bennett added his
promises that any attempted exploitation of the consumer would be mot
by removal of the concessions now
In the meantime interest hus shifted to London and lo the Economic
conference. Until there is definite
knowledge of tho Macdonald Government's plans to promote inter-Empire trade, everything is surmise. Insofar as Canada is concerned the
absolute necessity is some basis of
marketing favor for Canadian wheal
and other agricultural products, Ci ■
on that Mr. Bennett is likely to sus
pond preferential treatment for British manufacturers in Canada.
While the British Government of
the day has ventured no concessions
to food taxes or preferences thero
is a steadily growing feeling tbat—
unless prompt and promising action
is laken the conference now under
way is likely to sound the defeat of
the Macdonald Government within
the next five months.
The Conservative party in Britain
has heen embracing gradually the
principle of inter-Empire trade |
through preferential tariffs and while
this conference may be void of oc-
culnr, or immediately tangible re-
suits, il may well be of early and!
lasting benefit to agricultural Can-!

A JUDGE of one of our large cities was suffering from a slight attack of rheumatism so
that liis usual cheerful disposition was all
A tiny boy scout hurrying along on some
errand. Clashed against the judge and brought his
rheumatism to mind. The buy apologized but tiie
judge was plainly annoyed.
"Those boy scouts are everywhere", he said,
turning to a friend. "They bump into me on the
street, I see them along the country lanes, they
carry tlags in parades, they're always trying to
help me across the street when I happen to limp
;l bit—oh, 1 see them everywhere."
"Did one ever appear before you in the juvenili
court?" asked his friend.
The judge did nol reply for a moment but he
thought deeply. He then turned to the other with
a smile. "Never in my whole career," he said.
"Perhaps there is something to this scout movement alter all."
It is interesting to note that rarely, it ever,
dues a boy scout in good standing appear before
a judge or magistrate as a culprit. This has become so noticeable that eminent jurists constantly
mention it when addressing groups of adults who
might be interested in the boy scout movement.
Undoubtedly there is something to a movement
which can touch one-seventh of Canada's boys and
keep them from crime.
IK YOU ARE, never allow anyone to make a

0\'K fact stamls out in the new tariff. For th*1 first
time a Cunadain Government hns established the
principle that manufacturers will be given ample pro-
tection to insure them of their home market if in return
the producers will guarantee that the consumer is not
exploited, The Financial Post has long contended tha!
higher tariff need not mean higher sidling prices in the
home mavkot Now Mr. Bennett holds the snme view
and has exacted from Canadian industrialists their
agreement with thnt view. The success of the new tariff*
and subsequent revision rests now with the manufacturers whoso employees are designed to be the Immediate
bonollclariea. If they adhere to their promise; if the
government sees that they adhere to it. higher tariff will
prose successful in Canada.
The country as a whole is now disposed to accept
higher tariffs and there is more sympathy with protectionist theory than previously. So long as consumers
remain convinced that protection brings prosperity without exploitation of buyers the new Bennett policy of
higher tariff will remain popular. The manufacturers
must recognize their moral responsibility to the consumer, their trusteeship   for Canadian  prosperity.
Tho Government thus wields a certain measure of control over prices.   A reasonable enough degree of control
il Is,   ll may well go further.   Prico is but one consideration.   Qunlity and Service are equally important. Manu-
I'acturcrs must give their customers insurance in these
respects just ns in matters of price,    (liven fair prices^
good quality and adequate service, the Canadian con-,
sinning public will support a tariff high enough to givoj
ur producers their domestic market. .
The new tariff, boing an emergency measure, is not
a scientifically devised fiscal structure. Mr. Bennett
scrapped the one real fact-finding body—the tariff board.
It would hell, the country if he were to speed up the
reconstitlltion of the tariff board in order that the benefit
of further of its investigations may he had for the next
session of Parliament, when when more tariff changes
will be mnde.
The new tariff should quicken business activity. Besides giving producers a belter chance to hold their
home market, it will stimulate business enterprise, encourage the initiation of projects that were delayed because of the uncertainty of our tariff* policy In recent
years* ami generally start tho wheels of business turning
a bit faster.
Si *        *
It will prove uniformly beneficial. It will be found
lhat in such hastily conceived legislation many hardship-
have been introduced, that will retard rather than speed
up business. Some industries nre going to tind their
costs increased, find themselves generally handicapped
by the changes. Only painstaking examination by business paper editors and executives will enable u compiv-
hensive study of thc incidence of thc changes to lso mails'.
This will come in time. In the case of the publishers of
farm papers nnd magazines the new tariff works serious
hardship. They have tnken away from them the beliefs'
of a drawback on the duly paid on certain classes of
paper that they require. This drawback has heen of considerable value In widening their circulation nnd this in
turn bus been of national importance from the stand-
point of education ond the quickening of Canadian spirit.
Canadian line paper mills, many of them equipped with
obsolete machinery are unable to supply certain classes
of pnpei required in the publication of these magazines
and in many cuses tbe quality of paper furnished has
been inferior. The elimination of the drawback is a real
burden on Canadian publishers. More serious ,of course,
is effect on Canadian industrtinlists, who require strong
national publications to placs- their own advertising messages before Canadian buyers. —Financial Post.

Toxoid   and   Dlphteria   Prevention
When, towards the end of the last
century, diptheria antitoxin was discovered, we were jjiven u specific
cure for diptheria. When antitoxin
is administered in sufficient dosage,
during the first day of the illness, it
practically assures the recovery of
the person who is ill.
Diptheria antitoxin is the substance which the body produces to
counteract the poison or toxin which
the diptheria germs give off. This
takes time to produce and that is why
the antitoxin which has been produced in the horses is injected .so
thnt there may not lie uny time when
there is not sufficient amount of antitoxin present in the body to overcome the toxin.
In spite of our having this specific
cure, deaths from diptheria continued to occur. The number was greatly reduced, hut the disease was fat1
from being controlled. The explanation for this was thnt, for various
reasons, the antitoxin was not being
i g.iven early enough to prevent the
j damage done by the toxin. We were
thus in the position of knowing how
I to cure a disease which, however,
continued to cause 'many deaths because the remedy was not being used
soon enough to bring about a cure.
It wns evident that if diptheria
were to be controlled, it would be
necessary to be able to give protection against the disease before it
made its attack. If the human body
while healthy, could be made to produce antitoxin as it did when attacked by the disease, and so he prepared in advance, then the disease would
not occur. This is the very thing
which diptheria toxoid does.
We stated that the poison given
off by the diptheria germ is called
diptheria toxin. It has been found
practical to treat this toxin in a certain manner so that it loses its pot-
I soiling or toxic powers, and yet re-
: tains its ability to stimulate the body
; to produce antitoxin. This altered
: toxin is called toxoid.
Toxoid, because it has lost its tox-
ic power, is harmless. It is injected
into the body. Three doses are given at certain intervals and, after u
period of time, the person injected is
| protected or immunized ngainst dip-
j theria. In a small percentage of per-
j sons ,one or two additional injections
| are needed, as some individuals do
not respond as well as others.
The immunity gained in this way
j lasts for years if not for a lifetime.
j Toxoid has been widely used with
j perfect results, and it can be recom-
i mended without reservations. It
| should be given enrly in life because
i diptheria is most severe among chil-
j dren of from six months to five years.
Toxoid is a safe and satisfactory
] substance which makes us immune to
diptheria and offers a practical method of preventing diptheria.

; Vancouver, is entitled to some voice
j in selecting the park site, as is also
j the  Lower  Mainland.
i     Nature has cut off the lower third
i of the Island By the Alberni Canal,
■ he continued, which is only fifteen
| miles, as the crow flies, from Quail*
cum.    The remaining two-thirds of
[ the west coast is unapproachable by
nny road leading from Victoria, un-
. less such a highway is traversed from
the south bank of the canal to Al-
| bernl, leavdng the traveller still sixty
miles from the real west coast.
"Unfortunately, the south bank of
1 tho cmal is so rough that building
such   a   road   is   considered   a   joke,
j even by the people of Alberni," continued the speaker.
"The coast line from the canal
south is most forbidding and nature
has  made   it   uninteresting  from   a
I scenic point of view, when compared
I with   the   real   west  coast.     Anyone
, acquainted with this part of the
coastline knows there is no safe an-
; c ho rage after leaving Sooke, except
, the Nithjat, and the entrance to thirf
j refuge  is  hazardous.

I Connecting Link

Two years ago the Associated

that no new road programme on the

Speaking of the lslnnd coal industry. Mr. Mitchell said that in ten
years prouctlon fell off 677,449 tons
and 1044 fewer men were employed
The reason for loss of production on
the Island ,he said, is because, as
the railways explained at the recent
Victoria conference, they will not
use conl in ships or locomotives unless it pays them. In the final analysis the answer is an adequate t-i\

oil under present conditions, there U
no reason why any building, usim:

He argued that architects in planning buildings should give a basic
industry a chance. School boards,

tions, should be Impressed with the
necessity of using coal in preference !
to imported oil, Mr. Mitchell maintained.
"The American oil companies," ho
declared, "seem to be making a dead
