her.   Britain will pay it all.   But Britain
can not also pay the war debts of Europe
and the reparation bills of Germany.   She
will not incur a debt for the relief and restoration of allied and enemy countries,
which future British generations will be
paying when Germany  and  France and
Italy are free of war obligations.   Mr. As-
quith, who seems now to desire to make
Britain a fairy godmother to all nations,
is brought by the premier to this point.
THE OTHER ENTENTE
PROGRESSIVE AND LIBERAL
SEVERAL other things will happen
before the union of low tariff Liberal
members of parliament with the Progressives, for the overthrow of the protectionist element in the government, and especially for the political effacement of Sir
Lomer Gouin, the alleged master protectionist in the party.
In the first place the anti-protectionist
element in the Liberal party, as represented at Ottawa, is so small as to be almost negligible. Union of this group, if
it can be called a group, with the Progressives, would leave the supporters of
protection in a large majority. Supporters of protection are always more numerous in parliament than its advocates.
While correspondents at Ottawa speak of
Sir Lomer Fouin's protection speech as if
that was the main cause of the offending,
they hardly mention Mr. Fielding's tariff,
which was exactly in line with Sir Lomer's
speech. Mr. Fielding never talks protection.   He is protectionist in action.
So long as low tariff Liberals vote for
Mr. Fielding's tariffs it is vain and frivolous for them to resent Sir Lomer's words.
The only Liberal member who can consistently try to efface the minister of justice
is Mr. Macmaster, who speaks and sometimes votes against Mr. Fielding's tariff
propositions.
The Progressives have gained the
Crows Nest rates and the Wheat Board by
standing out against the Liberals. They
lost on the tariff. Their net gains may
encourage them to remain intact, in the
hope that they may soon control the Dominion as they now control four provinces.
CHIEF JUSTICE TAFT, Lord Shaw
and other eminent jurists of the United
States  and Great  Britain,  speaking at
San Francisco, have given a unanimous
decision in favor of the English-speaking
nations as the ultimate promoters of peace
and justice in the world.   Apart from all
boasting of numbers, wealth, learning and capacity, the English-speaking people are charged with
a more serious responsibility at the present time
than they ever had before, and a greater responsibility than any other people bear.   They occupy
a strategic position in the world.   They have an
influence out of all proportion to their numbers,
and even of their command of material resources.
It is not for them or any other two countries to
dictate to the world,   but their joint   influence
would have almost the effect of dictation, without
its invidious import.
MR. FIELDING'S FIRST LOAN
MR. FIELDING is making his first
large Canadian loan by offering the holders of short-term Victory bonds an opportunity to
renew them for five or ten years. It appears that
the bonds will be renewed at par with no change
i in the rate of interest. The only new feature is
the removal of the exemption from taxation. As
bonds due ten years hence have been quoted at 3
Der cent premium we may expect that the renewal,
even with liability to taxation, will be general.
It would not be surprising if there should be some
disappointment among thrifty people that the opportunity to lend money to the government on
these terms is confined to those who are already
creditors.
HOME   AND FOREIGN
BRITAIN'S   DUTY   TO   HERSELF
LLOYD GEORGE has given another
word of reassurance to those who feared
that Britain was about to assume most of
the war burden of Europe. The Balfour
note in the light of the premier's speech
and the statement of the chancellor of the
exchequer, is a declaration .l-..t tht* ur;��_
ish people owe some consideration to
themselves and their children. They are
not under an obligation to become bankrupt so that all the r....i of Europe should
be rescued from bankruptcy, while the
junior partner in the war collects all his
debts. Once more it is aftimed that Britain admits the full right of the United
Stales to every dollar that Britain owes
STATISTICS of insanity in this province recently given out suggest that all
the people are divided by the census authorities
between Canadian born and foreign born. The
census is more explicit and correct. It shows
that, in 1911, 43 per cent of the people of this
province were Canadian born, 20 per cent born in
the province, and 23 per cent in other provinces.
The "immigrant population" of 57 per cent were
divided into 30 per cent British born and 27 per
cent foreign born. Of the foreign born, more
than one-third were natives of the United States.
Alberta breeders are experimenting in developing lambs that will produce curly wool. The
kinky fleeces command fancy prices as material
for trimming women's coats.

PUT   YOUR
FIRES OUT
That a find of silver in the
barren lands, northeast of Fitzgerald, Alberta, has been made
which will be at least on a par
with the silver mines of northern
Ontario, is substantiated by
samples of silver ore brought into the Northern Trading company's post by Jack Sarcee, prospector of Fitzgerald,
The ore was gone over carefully by both the well known
southern geologists, Dr. Hume
and Dr. O'Neill, who pronounced
the find as being very valuable.
The examinations made by the
geologists were conducted independently and at different times,
one stating that the ore would
run $800 to the ton, while the
other engineer estimated it at
$775. It is high grade free milling ore, and in common with the
substantiation of the fact that
oil exists at Fort Norman in
commercial quantities is one of
the biggest things which has
happened in the north for many
years.
Mining Activities
There are a good many prospectors in the hills around Usk,
and some miners are doing development work, although none
are producing. Assessment

The Natural Wealth of Canada
Forests
IN the past three years Canada exported forest
products to the amount of $660,000,000, and
there are still left great forests of Douglas fir, pine
and spruce pulp wood���enough, if carefully preserved, to supply a great trade throughout an indefinite future. For more than a century the Bank of
Montreal has been co-operating in the development
of Canada's trade in forest products.

1921 show
AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF -$734,259,619
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
Is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the value
of production for successive five-year periods: For all years to 1895,
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years, 1896-1900, $57,607,967; for

PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $336,562,897
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
The mining laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees
lower than those of any oth.r Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire,
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.

We  cannot,   of   course,  all  be
handsome,
And it's hard for us all to be
good;
We are sure now and then to be
lonely,
And we don't always do as we
should;
To be cheerful is  much  harder
still,
But  at  least  we can always be
pleasant,
If we make up our minds that we
will;
And it pays every time to be
kindly,
Altho' you feel worried and blue,
If you smile at  the  world  and
look cheerful
The world will soon smile back
at you.
So try  and  brace  up and look
pleasant,
No matter  how   low   you   are
down,
Good humor is always contagious
But  you  banish   your   friends
when you frown.
