EQUAL OPPORTUNITY
IT IS NOW estimated that the United
States has coal enough to last 6,033 years,
which indicates the length of time likely
to be spent in investigating why it costs
so much.
WHETHER we like it or not we shall
have to admit that California is a mnch
talked-of state. It is California for holidays and California for business. How
does this come about? The answer is simple. California has the money to spend
on advertising, and it spends it in the best
possible way. Nearly $70,000 went in advertising California in newspapers last
year.   The results are obvious.
WHY should British Columbia lose
business to which it is rightly entitled?
Our soil and climate and natural beauty
are not inferior to California. We have
a summer that easily outdistances the
southern state. We may, perhaps, have
to play second fiddle in winter. But what
is there to prevent a 50-50 per cent split in
patronage? Our mining, fishing, timber
resources are unsurpassed���and our seen.

MINNESOTA SOCIALISM
STILL a few more crises have been
passed at Lausanue. Aftef all the conference which has been running for several
months has furnished new proof that there
is a general fear among most statesmen
lest any of their actions should plunge the
world iuto a new conflict. The more or
less happy ending to this latest gathering
of international representatives means
progress in the cause of arbitration.

WHILE the President is vacationing
the State of Minnesota has dealt an inconvenient blow to the Republican party. The
state has filled the vacancy in the senate,
caused by the death of the venerable Republican, Knut Nelson, by electing Magnus Johnson, the Farmer-Labor candidate,
a supporter of the radical Lafollette. This
leaves the regular Republicans in a min.
ority in the senate and vests the balance
of power in the independent and Farmer-
Labor group. The Farmer group in the
United States, unlike the Canadian Progressives, strongly favor the policy of
tariff protection. The Minnesota senator-
elect demands a national farm-marketing
corporation and large ventures in public
ownership. He subscribes to the whole
toilette platform.
