Solving Canadian Problems
Entering ;i in:"' your ih.. people oi Cniuuln, ivlilK*1 rejoicing til limit greal
national i i rituge, maj well glvo more lnlenslvo thought -iiul study to nntluiml
problems mil their solution lhan ever before. Every young nation has glgnu-
He problei is lo mool, anil by reason of Canada's geographical conditions Ibo
difficulties to conlond ngnlust are Immeasurably greater lliuu would otherwise
be the case. Nevertheless. Canadians nre a vlrljo, progressive people and
tmdnunted in the Cnce ol all obstacles.
Ono problem roqulrlng luimedln'le and continuing attention Is the reduc
linn ol debt, To ilebl reduction the Dominion, the Provluces, municipalities
nnd Individuals inns! give consideration Before Ihere can be debl reduction there miisi first In, n stoppage in further debt Increases. Tin- avornge
individual kvtl] !>•■ well advised 1; he rofrains from going nn;. deopev Into debt
during 1921 and strives tvli.li might nnd-innln tn reduce present indebtedness
.is much and as rnpldl.v a,; tiosslble.     Munlclpallllest lho Provinces and lho
Dominion should ali bakui heir budgets, not by imposing nddltlonul laxa-
lion, bur through lho adoption of very necessary economies. Certoiu capital
expenditures will, ot course, t,-' necessary, bu'. these should !"■ roslrlcted to
revenue producing services ami the encouragement oi' production of now
wealth through tho development oi natural resources.
An example ol what can and ought to be done Is furnlshed.by the present
muuiigemeni ol tho Canndlan National Hallways. In 1921 tlo- c.N.li, bud nn
operating rirofil of only three million dollars which did not go very far to-
wanly meeting lis interest chargos. Last year the C.N.H. increased its operating surplus to ?IS,000,000 or more, nnd while lilts did not meet Interest
chargos in 'nil. tt did materially reduce tho deflcli to la- in,a by tho country
a i large.
How was il accomplished? By linger earnings through Increased traffic
and tin- development, of productive services, but also through a very gratifying reduction in operating expenses resulting from good management, tho
elimination of waste, mid sound economies. For example, gross earnings ol
lho (.'.Mi. lnsl November increased by ¥689,578 over November, 1921, but
operating oxponses were decreased by almost two million dollars, resulting
in a net operating surplns of $4,0S1,81S, an Increase of 135 per cut. over the
corresponding month of 1921, sir Henry Thornton anticipates an operating surplus this year, ii nothing untoward happens, of $30,000,000 and he predicts thut b} ill" end of 1923 tho CNR, will cease to be a burden on the
Pominlon treasury.
Another problom lo |„. tackled by Cumuli.ms. individually and collectively, is to make Canada a more self-contained and self-supporting country, To
solve not only our transportation problem, but other economic weaknesses, it
liould be t lit- aim of Canadians lo develop our own natural resources to n
far greater extonl and thereby create a larger lntornnl trad.-. Alberta, for
example, possesses 1(5 per cent, of tlie coal of the world, yet Canada annually
imports hundreds of millions ol dollars worth of coal Ontario, north oi the
Great Lakes, has enormous reserves of iron ore. yet Imports her requirements
irorn the United States ami Newfoundland. Canada's adverse balance of
trade with tho United Stales is not made up of manufactured goods, as some
people would have us believe, bin Is made up ol raw ami semi-manufactured
materials which Canada can and should produco for herself, providing employment for countless thousands of people and croatlug thai Increased volume of Internal truffle upon which lho ultimate nnd pormnnoul success of our
railways so largbl) depends.
Suppose Ubot'MnOal ivos carried by th" railways at actual cost iu Ontario, or even ol a Iobs', would not the final result be great gain for the railways? Largely Increased production iff Alberta coal would lower costs of
production nt the mines to the benefit of all consumers, would enormously
Increase employment; mid to population, increased carrying of coal would
lend to lowei railway operating costs, hundreds of millions oi dollars poured
Into Alberta Instead of Into the United Slates would bring an era of prosperity
ami development thoro which would mean Inorensed business for Ontario und
all Canada, ami Increased traffic for ihe railways. Ontario would get back
every dollar »ho sponl for Minna coal bill which is now losl to life Stnto of
V nnsylv, nla,
A more scientific development ol Camilla's natural resources ami stales-
manlike vision iu Hi, dovolopnii nt or Internal Irndo within Canada would soon
attract 'hit larger population the Dominion so badly needs, and without huge
expenditures on Immigration Canada Is 'pending money on Immigration

Tho Ideal wuy lo utilize natural gas

Ii. however, ihere Is nothing to be
done at present In this direction, and
lite yus Is to In- utilized, ihe manufacture oi commodities for which there
i.s a continuous demand; such as gasoline nnd carbon-black, Is tlie next best
thing. Twenty years ago it was the
common experience both In the Pittsburg and tlie Ontario gas well district,
that in the cold weather when a good
flow of gat wiis'roqulreil lhe presence
of a liquid condensate thai accumulated in thi; low places on the pipe line,
Interfered with the steady How. and
necessitated pumping out or draining
ul Intervals. Nobody realized then
that in a few years' time fids liquid
would become an important article of
commerce and would add millions of
dollars to the income of ihe natural
gas producers.
Since 1001 various processes for ob-
lalnlng gasoline from natural gas have
been iu operation, the object being to
extract il at the wells before entering
ihe pipe line. Improvements have
continually been made, and in a properly designed and carofully Operated
phial it is now possible in recover
from S, to 05 per cent, -of the gasoline contained in the gas.

Grain Movement Over The Canadian Pacific Railway
Sept. 1   ■   Dec. 12, 1923
Crickety-click, clickety-click... It is the sound of car
wheels passing over the railroad tracks, and you
could stand and listen to thp same clickety-click (or 44
hours on end, if you were to watch that part of the
magnificent crop of Canada grown in districts served by
the Canadian Pacific railway and moved (rom the
harvest fields by that company. Imagine, if you can, a
train 881 miles long, or as far as from Winnipeg to the
upper reaches of the Rocky Mountains. That is how
many freight cars there would bo. But cars alone cannot
make a train. There are the engines, as well, and the road
has kept in the neighborhood of 070 freight engines
tugging grain trains east and west day und night
throughout the season and in addition to these there
arc 171 switch engines employed at terminals. The
season, be it understood, is taken as the period from the
opening of the Canadian crop year, Sept. 1 to the official
close of navigation with regard to shipping insurance on
the Great Lakes, which falls Dec. 12.
So much for computation trains. In point of fact
however, the longest train which was made up during the
season consisted of 126 cars and was approximately 1
mile in length. It was operated from Stoughton to
Areola, Saskatchewan, on October 5th. The weight of
the train not including the engine totalled 7,946 tons,
of this 6,656 tons being freight. The train bandied
185,000 bushels of wheat.
Now during the season, there were 88 days on which
cars could be loaded, for Sundays arc excluded. During
those 88 days there were trains operated on an average
every 50 minutes day and night, trains carrying nothing
but grain mind you, for passenger traffic and other
freight business were conducted at the same time, and
on uninterrupted schedules too, be it noted. These trains
were on an average 45 cars long.
In all, from Sept. 1 to Dec. 12, 1928, there were
marketed in districts served by the Canadian Pacific
Railway more than 200,000,000 bushels of all grains the
largest quantity ever reported since the inception of the
road. Taking the cars loaded as more truly representative
of the activities of the company in the matter of grain
movement, these have been reported at 118,232 for the
period, representing 169,981,184 bushels. Suppose for
* moment that all that grain were to be dumped into a
river bed 100 feet wide and five feet deep, and that the
new 'river' were able to flow at an average rate for water,
say a mile an hour, then he who stood on the bank and
had the patience to watch, might pitch his tent and
picnic for three and one half days before this stream
would be dried up.
A second trip into the land of imagination and one
might put mountains in the background, and might
make those mountains up of all the grains kernels which
had been taken from the freight cars engaged in their
transportation. II the grain were heaped up on acre lots
of ground, there might well be three mountains, and each
one nf them would tower 5,000 feet into the heavens.
The Canadian Pacific railway station at Lake Louise
one of the highest in the Rocky Mountains, is 6,044
feet above sea level. In the three mountains would be
included oats, rye, barley, flax — all the coarse grains
commonly grown in the Dominion as well as wheat, but
if the latter were to he sorted out and put into mountains
by itself, supposing there were still to be three mountains,
then each of these would rise 4,200 feet from the ground.
Banff itsell is only 4,500 feet above the sea.
But after all, wheat is of little use In imaginary rivers
or even mountains, however high or picturesque they
may be. Let us consider what would happen if all the
wheat were made into Hour (leaving coarse grains aside'
and kneaded up and baked into bread. If this were done
there would be approximately 104,700 miles of regulation
size, 16 ounce loaves, it they were placed end to end. This
tremendous string of loaves would stretch back and forth
across Canada, from Montreal to Vancouver 36 times.
If the loaves were laid side by side and end to end, they
would form a solid belt across the Dominion wider than
the height of a city lamp post. Again if they were piled
in a trans-Canada wall one loaf deep, the height of the
wall would be 12 feet.
A particularly interesting feature of the grain movement of the present season according to company
rfScials is the increase which had been reported in the
amount of grain sent by Canadian Pacific to Vancouver
for export. In all then were 6,682 cars received
representing 8,087,784 bushels, or a very large percentage
of the total exports from Vancouver which aggregated
8,910,966 bushels to the United Kingdom, and 80,800
mostly to South America. Last season lor the corresponding period there were 8,448 ears received at Vancouver
and 4,897,019 bushels exported.

Another cog, as it were, has been
cast in jho history of our Municipality, and no doubt the construction of
this cog, otherwise designated our
representative council of local administration, has taken shape and personality according to the desires of
the  electoral  majority.
The newly chosen officers, we ex-
poot and trust, will at all times during their office term, be keen and
alert In the interests of our affairs,
and towards the task of moulding
Kent Municipality Into an exemplary
community of prosperous energetic
and   contented   citizens.
The opportunity of our recently appointed officials to set an example,
and maintain themselves worthy of
tho confidence placed In them by the
electoral majority, is now a reality
knocking  strongly  at  their doors.
Now, dear citizens, having selected
our administrators, 'let's get! behind
them In this work, by voicing our
ideas and suggestions; and in return
may the council chamber be a place
where our vaMous ideas and suggestions will 'bc respectfully and attentively heard, sincere consideration.

We understand there is some Insurance,
The first to see tho fire were Mrs.
Ashton Jones and Mf*. C. W. Vouna
(about tho same time) when they
called their husbands, who had retired for the night. Mr. Young lost
noi time In dressing, and running out
to meet Jones, met him coming out
of the door. Seeing no one near the
fire, they made good time and arrived
on the scene to find Mr. Lang was
away and his mother asleep in the
house. By this- time tho fire had
started In a largo pile of old lumber
and ^cedar shakes which practically

Mr. George Ogllvle and his mother,

Mr. Carpenter brought his knowledge of lumber and experience as n
pioneer Into play. With a hand-prj
tore down the pile of lumber and
shakes so that the bucket brlgad.
could get the water on the right spoi
with the result that by the time Mr
Wmi Henley and sons and others arrived, tbe fire was pretty well under
control, but they willingly took up
the buckets, eta, and completed the
job the others had so well commenced
giving them a chance to get rid of
smoke,   etc z
Atj .fchls stage of .the proceedings
Mr. Lang appeancd on the scene, very
