Imperial Club
Have Difficulty
Obtaining Hall
It is to be very much regretted
thnt thc Imperial badminton club is
forced to seek a new home. Mr. Joe
Idiens intends putting in a miniature
golf course nt the Imperial Pavilion
for the winter months which forces*
the feather pushers to seek n new
home. An effot is being mnde to
come to some arrangement with the
munagement of the Native Sons' Hall
at Courtenay, this being the only
hall In the district capable of accommodating a large club. This ball,
however, hns been let for various
other sports und it is very doubtful
whether accommodation can be made
for the Imperial club. The Native
Sons have been offered $400 for the
use of the hall for two nights a week
by the Imperial club and this offer,
we are led to believe, is being considered. It appears, on the face of
events, thut if u hull large enough
to take three or four courts was
erected in Cumberland, the difficulty
of the badminton players could be
solved. In the city there are a number of halls where badminton is
played, but not one of them big
enough to accommodate even a fair
sized club. The band hall has two
courts, the United Church Hall one
court and the Anglican Hall one
court. With nil these halls in use
for the gume of badminton for the
past few years, a large number of
players have been developed, who
find themselves at this stage hardly
able to find a place to play in. It
means that the thee smaller clubs
in the eity will be overcrowded and
if a limit is put on the number joining each club, there will be so many
players that one will hardly be able
to get enough gumes. A large hall
for Cumberland has been mooted
many times but nothing definite has
ever been started.
Just before going to press we received the information that the Imperials had not been successful in
making satisfactory arrangements
for the use of the Native Sons' Hall
at Courtenay and thnt thc one time
famous club has been forced to disband, the members joining the vuri
ous small clubs throughout the district.
Courtenay Bowlers
Visit Local Green
A rink of Courtenay bowlers paid
a visit to the local green on Wednes*
day afternon and indulged in a real
good game with a rink of Cumberland players. The visit was totally
unexpected and came as a pleasant
surprise to the local bowlers. The
visitors included Mayor J. Macintyre
and Messrs. Donahue, McPherson
and Eakin. A rink of local players
was quickly got together to give the
visitors a game which resulted in a
win for Courtenay by a score of 14-
13. The local rink was composed
of Jack Williams, H. Waterfield, T.
Carney and R. T. Brown.
Fined for Hunting
Before Open Season
Nick Helm, of Cnmp 3, and Dave
Aitken of Bevan, fell foul of the
game warden, Mr. B. Harvey on the
12th of September, the day before
the season opened, Helm was brought
before Magistrate Bates charged with
hunting game in closed season, namely on the afternoon of September 12.
The case came up on Monduy of this
week und Helm who wus represented by Mr. P. P. Harrison, pleaded
not guilty. He wns convicted nnd
fined nnd his counsel gave warning
that he would appeal the case.
A similar ense against Dave Aitken
was adjourned until after the case
against Helm is concluded.
Fined for Theft

district are asked to register \
their names at the office of thc j
Cumberland Islander. It doe;-

On Tuesday in the Courtenay Po-
lice court, two youngs men from
Cumberland were severely reprimanded by the magistrate when they
appeared before him charged with
the theft of nine and a half sacks
of bark from Mah Hong at Funny
Bay, on September 5th. Discovering
his loss Mah Hong reported it to
the police. With very little delay
the two local youths were arrested
and admitted selling the bark to Mv.
W. Douglas as their own. They
pleaded guilty before the magistrate
and were each fined $10.00 and

Coal Burner Under
Tests On E. and N.
Engine  Equipped  Wtih   New  Spark
Arreater Took Out Freight
A conl burning locomotive on Monday morning hauled the regular
north bound freight train northward
over the Esquimalt and Nanaimo
Railway to Wellington, the run being
the first test of the Brown-Cyclone
spnrk arrester to he made under
working conditions with Vancouver
Island Fuel.
The experimental installations was
keenly watched by n large purty of
experts. Again on Thursday tests
were made on the Malahat und Alberni grades with what results we
have not been able to learn. The
new Brown-Cyclone spark arrester is
rather costly to instal and why the
"Modvole" spark arrester hug not
been tried by the powers that be is
rather hard to understand. The
"Medvole" Ls the outcome of experiments by two local men in the persons of A. Auchinvole and J. Med-
rich of Union Bay, who have got
their spark arrester patented in Canada. The "Medvole" ho far as we
have been able to find out from out-
own observations is a very efficient
and economical device. The Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir), Limited
have been using this spark arrester
for the past four years on its locomotives which operate through heavily wooded country and during the
whote of that time not a single fire
hns been recorded through sparks
from the Company's locomotives. The
Comox Logging and Railway Company ulso have had experience with
these same arresters and found them
very satisfactory. The cost of installing n "Medvole" is about one
quarter the cost of installing the
Brown-Cyclone arrester. In this latter device it was necessary to extend
a standard locomotive four feet,
moving the stack forward the sume
distance, and applying the principle
of Brown-Cyclone arrester under the
supervision of an expert. Locomotive No. 3222 left Victoria on Thursday morning for the tests, when the
action of the device installed by a
representative of thc owners of the
patent came under close observations
by officials of the road, representatives of the Provincial Government,
including Robert Dunn .deputy minister of mines and F. A. MacDonald
of the coal commission, who will report thc results of their observations
to J, M. Cameron, manager of the
compnny, nnd a member of the commission, which will meet to hear the
reports in the near future.
From newspaper reports it would
uppear that the Brown-Cyclone is
rather costly to instnl and why the
railroad companies should go to such
nn expense in an effort to boost the
consumption of coal, when there is
u cheaper and just as efficient a device on the market is hard to understand. However, it is rumoured on
thc street that the "Medvole" arrester will be tried out. There is not the
slightest doubt about the efficiency
of this local arrester, we huve observed it year in and year out on
our local railroads and have been
amazed at the simplicity of it and its
efficiency. Not a fire in nearly four
years is something to be proud of
nnd nt thut operuting on steep grades
and through heavily wooded country, \

Ottawa, September 25, (Special
to Islander).—Within seven weeks
of his return to power as Prime Min
ister, Hon. R. B. Bennett had completed and laid before Parliament
his complete program for the immediate relief of unemployment in
His plans muke effective thc most
rndicnl und far-reaching upward re-
vision of the tariff since 1879 and
bring into effect regulations relative
to assessment of duties which place
in the hands of the Government all
the offensive power of a flexible tariff to protect Canuduian producers,
agricultural or industrial, from unfair outside competition.
Among the items which are given
increased protection nre agricultural products, iron and steel schedule
in part, silks, boots and shoes, metals
and minerals, advertising matter, agricultural implements, kitchen ware,
heating and electrical apparatus. Altogether nearly 200 of the 1188 tariff schedules are amended and in
every instance upwards. This, Mr.
Bennett told parliament, was only a
partial revision. The general one
will come at the winter session of
the House.
Evidence of the thoroughness with
which he proposes to test the success
of a policy of protection is shown by
the fact that thc duty on butter goes
up from the old 1 cent a pound rate
on New Zealand butter to 8 cents under the British Preference. 12 cents
intermediate and 14 cents general
tariff. In many instances the preferences extended under the Dunning
budget have been wiped out and the
old duties extended. The countervailing duties placed on 16 items
against the recent United States tariff by the late Government have been
wiped out and new general tariffs
fixed at the level of the United States
It took Mr. Bennett just twenty
minutes to deliver his speech and at
its conclusion Mr. King remarked:-
'so far I can see from glancing rapidly over the list of changes, the;'
are the most far-reaching which any
government has introduced within
my memory."
In laying the changes before thc
House Mr. Bennett repeated his platform pledge that no beneficiary of
protection would be permitted to exploit the consumer. In support of
that ideal he introduced a resolution
giving the Government authority by
order-in-council to cancel the assist
ance now being given.
Before the next session of the
House a plan will he worked out
whereby u brunch of the Government will keep careful check upon
profits earned and prices charged.
Consumers complaints will be carefully followed up to locate industries
attempting to take unfair advantage
of the protection given.
An interesting phase of these tariff
developments lies in Mr. Bennett's
declaration that they will, within a
few weeks, bring employment to between 25,000 and 36,000 Canadian
workmen who are now jobless. The
voting of $20,000,000 for unemployment relief will directly nnd indirectly give work to thousands more, but
all this, the new premier promises,
is but the beginning of his program
to establish permanently prospority
in Canada,
One thing at least is sure. The
new Government proposes to give its
theories thc acid test of generous
und general practical application. It
hns even taken power to exclude by
order-in-council commodities from
countries which are not subscribers
to the Versailles Treaty and the conditions of labor which it imposes, <i
power which, if applied, will greatly
curtail competition from countries
where labor is paid but a fraction
tf a Canadian living wage.
A very enthusintic meeting ol the
Cumberland Bourd of Trade was held
i ut the Waverley Hotel on Wedni-ri
i day night, following u dinner served
j by the genial proprietor of this pop-
j ular hostelry. T.'H. Mumford, pr
I dent of the local board was in the
I chair and visitors included Messrs
McPhee, Ball, Simms, and Douglu'
of the Courtenay-Comox Board. Dr
(i. K. MacNaughton, M.L.A., and P.
Leo Anderton, president of the Associated Boards of Trade of Vancouver Island were present. In his
opening remarks, Mr. Mumford hud
special stress on the fact that the
meeting hnd two or three things of
vital interest to discuss. One of the
problems which should be faced waa
the securing of the necessary help to
load the next Japanese boat which
would be coming very shortly to loud
lumber ut mills in this district. One
of the chief difficulties the operators
of the last boat had to contend
with was in the securing of help.
They had been forced to bring longshoremen from Vancouver at an enormous expense and the suggestion
was advanced thnt enough local men
could be secured to do this work.
A committee composed of Messrs.
Bull, McPhee, Douglas, Symons nnd
T. H. Carey was nppointed to look
into the mutter of securing the help
In view of the fact that the federal government hud voted the sum of
twenty million of dollars for the undertaking of necessary public works,
the president of the Cumberland
Bourd thought this an opportune
time to further advance claims for
the completion of the Cumberland
Lake-Albcrni rond. In this he was
supported by Mr. Simms, who said
he had given this mutter much
thought for the past S years. He was
entirely in accord with the suggestion of the Cumberland president nnd
ho thought he wus safe in saying
that the whole of the Courtenay district would buck up thc claims of the
Board, more especially when it was
shown that with the starting of this
road the unemployed question in the
district would be solved. He moved
that a resolution be drawn up nnd
presented to the necessary authorities and also urged the enlisting of
the services of Dr. MacNaughton.
Dr. MacNaughton, member for this
district in the Provincial house suid
that any scheme which would benefit
this district and relieve unemployment would have bis heartiest support. He reminded the audience,
however that the government were
not committed to a policy of building the Cumberland Lake-Alberni
road. Surveys hud been made many
years ugo, he was led to believe, and
the cost as submitted then for the
construction of the road was considered by the government of the day
as quite large. He admitted it would
not be as easy to get the government
to see the necessity of building this
road us wus generally thought. How*
ever, he would do all in his power
to assist the board of trade in their
efforts to get the road started, whicb I
would undoubtedly solve for a long!
time the unemployed in this towr '
alone, which amounted to 100, That'
number of unemployed, stated the
doctor was turned into the government some time ugo und possibly,
since then the situation hns been aggravated. A few men would no j
doubt be employed on the Menzies
Bay road, also on the road at Oyster
and Campbell River.
Mr. P. Leo Anderton, the president of the Associated Boards Of
Trade of Vancouver Island next ud-
dressed the meeting. After thunking
thc local board for the kind invitation to be present that evening he
outlined the number of boards comprising the Associated Boards and
the work that each board was doing.
I-iOea! boards were the very life of
the associated boards, said Mr. Anderton nnd whilst most of the meetings were of n dry nature the membership was generally composed of'
in who hud the vision to look ahead
5, 7 or 10 years. That j said the associated president, brings me to n
proposition which I am going to lay
before you tonight, which I think
is of vital importance to the whole
of Vancouver Island. With the
powers thnt be looking with favor on
a Nutionul Park site on the West
coast of the Island, he thought thei
present time an opportune one to
bring forth their views in regard to j
this mutter. He suggested that the
boards of trade at the north end of
the Island get busy immediately and

Of Convention
There was a very good entry received nt the Cumberland Lawn
Bowling club on Sunday when play
commenced for the Can Reifel trophy. The system of play was the
same as in vogue at the Nanaimo
green, Each rink played five ends,
the winners moving to the next rinV
and playing five more ends and si
on until the completion of thc competition. The rink skipped by Harry
Jackson and composed of Messrs. A.
J. Taylor, H. Waterfield and R. T.
Brown captured first prize, second
place going to the rink skipped by
J. Fellows and consisting of Messrs.
C. Walker, W. McMillan and Andy
Kay (Union Buy). Some very gooj
ends were witnessed hy the large
gallery present nnd play was keen
all afternoon.
Following the Con. Reifel contest,
a semi-final game in the doubles wus
played J. Vernon-Jones and T. Carney won rather easily from R. Strachan and Andy Kay, the score being
21-1. Vernon-Jones und Carney
now meet the winners of the other
semi-finul which will probably be
played on Saturday between Harry
Jackson and W. Younger and T. D.
Robertson und Jack Williams with
the final taking placo on Sunday.
Green   to   Close   October   Sth
The green will definitely close on
Sunday, October the 5th when it i«
expected a monster competition will
mark the occasion. There is stil'

executive of the club is asking foj"
volunteers from amongst the mem
bers to undertake this work.
urge that a piece of land stretching
from Long Beach on tbe West Coast
to Lake Cumberland on the East
coast be set aside as a N'ationul Park
urea. This area, as shown on thc
map Mr. Anderton had with him, indicated thut the proposed territory
would tuke in Strathcona Pnrk, the
Forbidden Plateau, down to Lake
Cumberland. The area hud all the
Parks Bourd wanted, a sea frontage
and elevation. There was very little of the land held privately nnd if
the Dominion Parks Board could be
handed the area without any strings
whatever, it would not be long before this area would be solving for
all time the unemployed question on
Vancouver Island. To prove his
point, Mr. Anderton quoted figures
to show the number of automobiles
going into Yellowstone National
Park every duy. Another point
which Mr. Anderton brought out
was to the effect that this area would
make a good argument for thc con-
Btruction of the road from Cumberland Lake lu Alberni. Mr. Mumford
thanked Mr. Anderton for his interesting talk and a general discussion
followed. Dr. MacNaughton said
ufter listening to Mr. Anderton he
was more thun ever convinced that
tho Cumberland Lake-Alberni road
was a necessity. He felt as Mr. Anderton did thai such a scheme would
solve all our unemployed troubles
for ull time. He would certainly
support the idea advanced by the
president of the Associated Boards
and would do all in his power to
bring to the attention of the authorities the necessity for immediate
action. After a general discussion
on the idea advanced by Mr. Anderton, a Parks committee from thc
Cumberland Board was named by
thu president to work in conjunction
With the Couretnuy Parks bourd
The committee named consists of
Messrs Eadie, Symons, and Carey.
The matter of obtaining the number nf unemployed throughout the
district was also discussed which was
thought by the members present to
be quite an undertaking. It was
loft to u special committee to find
.some means of obtaining the information.
Before concluding, a vote of
thanks was tendered to Dr. MacNaughton and to Mr. P. Leo Ander-
for their help and attendance.
Daniel Dowling
Placed Under
Bonds to Appear
The preliminary hearinf of thi
shooting accident which took place
on the first day of the hunting sea
son when James Did: of Cumberland
died, and Daniel Dowling, uf the
K. und K. Boom Camp, Royston, who
fired the fatal shot, was as a result
charged with manslaughter, i
heard on Friday before Magistrate
Bates of Courtenay und was adjourn
ed until Monday morning.
The evidence was a repitition of
that given at the inquest which wns
reported in last week's Islander and
after reviewing the evidence the following decision was handed down:
"The duty of a magistrate at u
preliminary inquiry is to Inquire into
the matters charged against such
person and Ihe magistrate has only
to find evidence of a probable case of
guilt to justify the committal fin-
trial und has not to deal with thc
preponderance of testimony."
Section 247 of the Criminal Code
states that "every one who hns in his
charge or under his control anything whatever whether animate or
Inanimate or who erects takes or
maintains anything whatever which
in the absence of precaution or care
may endanger human life, is undei
legal duty to lake reasonable precautions against and use reasonable
care to avoid .such danger and is
criminally responsible for tbe consequences of omitting with lawful excuse to perform such duty."
Evidence in this case goes to show
that -lames Dick wa.- killed by a bullet (tred by tho accused Daniel Herbert Dowling.
Furthermore the evidence goes t:>
Show that there Is a question as to
whether accused used reasonable
care to avoid the danger knowing a^
he did according to the evidence that
there were other hunters somewhere
in tho vicinity.
This court finds therefore that
there is evidence sufficient in this
case to put the accused on his trial
but the evidence does not furnish
such strong presumption of guilt as
to warrant his committal for trial and
he will therefore be put on his trial
and admitted to bail undei Section
600 of the Criminal Code.
The accused was placed under
bond to appear for trial if called
upon,  bail  being allowed  at   $8,000,

Questions concerning Health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association, 184, College St., Toronto, will be answered personally
by correspondence.
Good vision is priceless. There in
nothing that could be offered to us
which would tempt ua in exchange
for our eyea.
Because we can soe we take it for
granted that we will always have
good eyesight, and we go ahead
nbusing our eyes in a most careless
manner. Our eyes cannot be replaced; they have to last us throughout
life. If we continue to abuse them.
they are almost sure to be worn out
at an age when we still need them.
Any person who has difficulty in
seeing, who has frequent headaches
whose eyes become tired or who has
spots dancing before the eyes should
have his eyes examined.
The reason for having the eyes
examined is to find out whether or
not there is an abnormal condition
which requires treatment. Proper
treatment will relieve the symptoms,
but, more important  than relief of
symptoms, is the prevention of further damage.
Faulty vision is common. Vision
defects should be corrected by glasses
prescribed after a thorough examination.
We should always read and work
in a good light. The light should be
steady and should fall so that our
bodies do not cast a shadow on what
we are doing.
The eyes should be protected from
infection. Fingers must he kept
away from the eyes as they are very
apt to carry infection into them.
Every person should hove his own
towel, this even among members of
the same family. The roller-towel
and the common towel, spread infection, and if such a towel is used
in drying the face, there is a real
danger of carrying infection from
the towel into the eyes.
if some foreign substance gets into the eye, it should be removed by
a trained person. The eye is too
precious to take chances on its being
injured by unskilled attention, to say
nothing of the possibility of its being
infected nt the same time.
The eyes are part of the body and
it should therefore not be forgotten
that they are affected by the general

The Red Man Tries the Pipes
Obliging Bobby
Folks visiting Bobby's Mother remark on his
happy* sunshiny disposition. So different from
the Bobby that used to be. The explanation is
simple. Formerly he didn't Mem to digest his
milk; the milk didn't agree with him. Now he
gets Nestle's Evaporated Milk which he does
digest—readily.  Why, he's a different boy!
And here's tne Rea$on! Nestle's Evaporated Milk U Just
the bent of fresh cow's milk with part ofthe water removed—
then Healed and sterilized in air-tight container*. Add water
again and yo* hnve absolutely pure, safe milk—hut more
readily digestible than ordinary milk because tbe large fat
globules of the milk have heen broken up into small onei
of the same sire as in Mother's milk. Also, the curdl which
form in the stomach when Nestle's Evaporated Milk iv used
are soft and flaky and therefore easily digestible.
Use Nestle's Evaporated Milk for Your Baby. U« It in
coffee—in cocoa—In tea. Use It in all cooking and as a
beverage by diluting with one to two parts water.
