PictoU,
IN LABOR CENTRES
one seat was lost in Quebec city
and one in Montreal. The government majority in Ottawa city was
nearly swept away and Would have
vanished altogether if the premier
had not become a candidate. Toronto
gave sweeping opposition majorities
in all the ridings, and the government
lost the neighboring constituency ol
Centre York, with its Inrge industrial popu.ation. The city of London
Condemned the government by an enormous majority. The government
seat in Hamilton was Inst. Winnipeg,
formerly government, went conservative by nearly 2000 majority, while
Vancouver, Victoria, New- Westminster and the whole Ko0tenay mining
country gave large majorities against
the government which they supported
four years ago- The same thing happened in the mining community of
Lethbridge. Evidently the Lemieux
act has not. dune much to win the favour of industrial communities.
THE    PREMIER POR PROVINCIAL
RIGHTS.
On Tuesday the executive of the labor organisations appealed to Sir
Wilfrid and his minister ol labor to
assist in the work of technical education. The labor congress has declared that instruction and training in
industrial arts is a national duty and
the case was presented to the premier. Sie Wilfrid gave a distinct refusal. This, he said, was wholly a
matter for the provinces, and the
federal government 'Would not interfere.
Mr. Draper made the apt reply that
the Dominion was educating the
farmers through experimental farming
and dairy stations, chicken fattening
establishments, and similar enterprises. To this the premier only said
that if this opened a door the door
would hi opened no farther nnd so
tho subject was abruptly dismissed.
Several CHANGES OP BASE.
On the previous day Professor Sexton of the NoVa Bcotia Education department, speaking In Toronto, declared that the Dominion government
had a duty to perform in the matter,
and ought to take the lead in the
promotion of industrial education. It
would have been more honest ol Sir
Wilfrid to suy that his government
was hard up and hail no money to
spend for any new purpose, than to
raise a false issue of jurisdiction. It
is true education In assigned to the
provinces, but as Mr, Draper says,
the federal government is engaged In
the Work ol Instructing farmers, ('on
triil ul farm lands is assigned to pro
vinces, but Sir Wilfrid's govornmont
in establishing the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan refused to
allow them control of the public do
main. When it suits a political pur
pose, as In tho matter of the Mnnlto-
ha schools, Kir Wilfrid refuses to in
terfere in school questions. When it
suits a political purpose, as In Al
hcrtii and Saskatchewan, he interferes with the control of schools. When
party Interests require it, Sir Wilfrid
insists that the control of the federal
franchise and registration belongs
Constitutionally to tho provincial authorities. When there is an urgent
party necessity that the Manitoba,
Ontario, and British Columbia lists
and districts should bo sq manipulated to give the Laurier government a
dishonest'advantage, Sir Wilfrid has
both feet reatly to trample on provincial rights. Therefore the labor
Interests need not suppose for a moment that any question of principle
is involved in the refusal of tho government to assist iu industrial education.

Question of Good Roads
The question of good trim1' roads
into the city from country points is
receiving some attention now, and
judging from the expression of a
number of leading citizens on the
subject, some action to bring about
a conference of the municipalities interested will be taken at an early
date. Tliis is a vital matter for the
smaller towns and cities as well. All
admit tbe necessity of thrse roads,

DEPARTMENT STEPPED IN
During 1907, when the miners and
operators had failed to come t0
terms the department stepped in and
as the result of its investigation a
working agreement was arrived at.
It is the termination of this agreement which is bringing about the
present trouble. There is still s0me
little time in which the opt rations of
the net may be usked for, but ns
there was no date of notice in the expiring agreement, negotiation may
not lie opened until the last moment
when a conflict Will be almost inevitable, judging from the aspect of the
men at the present time and their
actions  in the past.
In the event of a conflict the domestic fuel supply would n .t suffer to
any great extent, the chief trouble
being with the railways and smelt

on a reduced customs taxation.
Hut what will the premier and finance minister say of the record of
Commercial failures ? The number
was the largest for twelve yenis, and
the liabilities the largest, except in
one year, for fourteen years. Last
year there were 1640 failures with
$15,000,000 liabilities. These are Don
Wiman returns.
THE GREAT BORROWER.
Mr. Fielding has left Paris anil is
back in London struggling again with
the question of borrowing money- Inl
November a little debt of £4,500,000
or $21,900,000 negotiated in 1874 by |
Sir Richard Cartwright, tell due. ln ;
addition there was a matter of $9,-1
000,000 ol temporary loans, afloat last |
spring. An issue of bonds was at-1
tempted some months ago, and is not [
believed to have heen a great sue-j
cess, though the government has re- ]
(rained from giving out any Informa*
tiMn concerning it. In the last session Mr. Fielding gave some idea of
the way he bad "kitted" notes dur
ing    the    previous   fiscal year. A
large loan bad fallen due in 1904,
Part was redeemed, and $12,5000,000
renewed till May 1907. When it came
due again, about a quarter of the
amount was changed into inscribed
stuck, which is another method of
borrowing, and 49.000,000 was renewed again at 4 per cent, for four
years longer.
In December, 1907, Mr. Fielding
burrowed $7,5000,000 at 4 per cent.,
payable iu live years.
In February, 1908, Mr. Fielding
made another loan of $15,000,000 at
:ii per cent. Half of this was used
to retire an Intercolonial guarantee
loan.
Meanwhile, there wore running various temporary loans, including £500-
uoo sterling trcnmiry bills drawing 4j
per cent., and Cl,000,001) sterling at
fi,ur aud a quarter per cent., and $2,
uoo.ooo borrowed from hunks In
France at 4 pfir cent.
It may bf further explained tbat
the Loudon operations of extending
loans involved payments of commissions and brokerage amounting to 11
per cent. In olWl case, and IJ In the
others, altogether calling for some
$600,000,
Mr. Fielding is perhaps congratulating himself on the fact Unit, whifo
borrowing abroad cost him four to
live per cent, interest anil charges,

money in the     savings bank,   receive

Treaty is now signed
After a long period of hard, patient work, some of the features of
which ran into years, United States
secretary of state Knot and ambassador James Urycc of Great Britain
hnve signed a treaty for thc settlement of international differences between Canada and thc United States.
The signatures were attached to the
instrument tit tho home of secretary
Root at 8 o'clock last night. This is
the agreement which has been popularity alluded to as thc "waterways
treaty," but its scope is broader
than that designation implies, as it
contemplates a disposition of everything in the nature of differences between the two countries and machinery for the settling ol questions that
muy arise along certain lines in the
future. Provision is made f()r a
joint high commissioner to be made
permanent in character.
The final drafts and printing of the
treaty was not finished until late
yesterday, almost at the last moment a whole page having to he reprinted because of a slight alteration
in the text.
Dependent upon the final ratification of the treaty rests the settlement of numerous questions connect
ed with the water boundaries which
have heen the source of more or less
annoyance at different times. Included in these are the regulations of the
use of thc waters nf the Great Lakes
with the secondary, but none less im
portant question of the diversion of
the waters 0f these boundaries, Including Niagara Palls which Involves
whut amount of water is tn be taken
for power purposes, the navigation of
of tho St. John river between Maine
and New Brunswick, and of the Milk I
river In the Northwest.
To some extent the operations of |
the treaty will supersede the work, nf |
the international waterways commission, made up of representatives ol
Canada und the United States whose
duty includes among other things the
ascertainment und ro-CHtuhllshmcnt
il the location of that portion of the
i international bnundary between the
j United States and Canada passing
[through the Great Lakes. That feature of its wnrk, however, will ba continued hy the waterways commission
until it is completed. Its other por
[tion gradually being absorbed by the I
(joint high commission appointed In
accordance with the treaty signed to-
I night.

Thr* dofi-nt of thr municipal by-law
was the first fruit of the awakening
of the ratepayers of Cranbrook, and
it is not likely to be the last.
Time In sprint; and summer is the
one essential for the huildint; of a
new school house. Rvery minute is
valuable, and we are emphatic iu
saying that, in our opinion that it is
the desire nf the ratepayers of Cran-
hr0o'- to have tlie school building
by-law submitted to them for approval at once.
The school board has, and the council should devise some means which
will render it unnecessary to close
lhe city school because the thermometer indicates 2d below zero.
With the opening of the provincial
legislature will come strong recommendations from tbe school trustees
of ('ranbrook f0r government assistance towards the construction of the
new school building.
The Cranbrook Brass Bund is hnrd
at work practising for their concert.
The auditorium should be crowded on
tbe night nf the concert. Help the
band by purchasing a ticket.
Judging from the reports of thc
weather prophets, the Coming summer will be warmer than tbe past
winter. Hence the "old man's" banana crop may be a bumper une.
The question has been asked why
it is that the council and the school
trusties canno act unitedly and
harmoniously in the matter of pro-
vidlng better school accommodation
fm the lame and constantly Increasing number «»f pupils. The old school
building might make a good council building
Tlie   election   of   !l.,n    Thomas   Tav

The defective Hue, imperfect Insulation of electric wires and faulty hose
connection for gas stoves are among
the     frequent     origins of destructive —°—
tires.   At  the beginning  of season 0f   HtW   and   OatS   for   Sale

many householders    make a thorough , °—

gage an expert to do so, in order Phone J10,
tbat everything may be In shape for
the season of danger? Yet this action is recommended by many underwriters, who declare that tbe adoption of the plan would materially reduce the nation's annual losses from
tire.
With the common rubber hnse connection for gns stoves in sucli general
use, the wonder is that there are not
more fatal »Ves in the course- of ai
winter. Rven when in the best of condition, it is easy for it to become accidentally detached, permitting the j
gas to escape, and wben the hose is
old and worn, the danger is magni- j
Red. Insurance companies have very
properly adopted rigid restrictions
against this device*, but its perilous
popularity continues. Bats and mice,
with a taste for matches, constitute
an additional menace nt any time of
year.

humanity has not yet learntd how to
control the proverbial "good servant
but bad master," fire.—Toronto

OUR OWN EXCLUSIVE SECRET PROCE8S-the iteel used in their manufacture is of the finest English and
Swedish make.   This wonderful discovery is the result of years of experiment and study, and at last there has been
produced a razor that will shave any beard, NO MATTER HOW TOUGH.
ELECTRIC TEMPERING adds CARBON to the steel; whereas tempering by fire, (the only other method known for
centuries) DESTROYS the CARBON which is the life of steel.   All other makes of razors must be HONED  AND GROUNO
oiten, as their blades will NOT hold an edge any length of time.  CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS do not require HONING
or GRINDING during 9 lifetime in private use* they are all tempered alike, every part of their blades king subjected to
the same AMPERES OF ELECTRICITY.  CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS are ground FIVE times by the HAMBURG
METHOD, the most expensive grinding known.
VOUR DEALER will delivw to you one of these CARBO MAGNETIC RAZORS on 30 days' trial, without
oblitration on your part lo purchase—take advantage of this opportunity. Break away from the barber habit I You will save
$0(1 00 annually.
Call on our representatives in your town, and request a copy of "Hints On Shaving"—This booklet illustrates the
correct razor position lor shaving every part of the face (ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN FROM LIFE) -it also tells
you HOW TO STROP A RAZOR PROPERLY; should our dealer be out of them, drop us a card, and we will send you

A RAILWAY COMPARISON*.
While the intercolonial railway,
owned by the Dominion and managed
by a minister under the patronage
system, comes out about $l,000.itno
worse in the last calendar year than
the year before, the Temiskuming
railway, owned by the Province ot
Ontario, and operated on business
principles by an independent commission, is snid to have a hnlance of
$60,000 better than the previous year.
The Ontario railway is handing over
to the government a surplus over
working expenses more than sufficient
to pay interest on the cost of the
road. The Intercolonial pays nl( in
terest, but will draw on thc treasury
for something like $1,000,000 acknowledged deficit and a further sum of
two or three millions alleged to have
been spent in improvements, but
mostly required to replace plant,
buildings and equipment destroyed 0r
worn out. Since thc Laurier government t0ok office the country hns spent
$34,000,000 0n capital account on the
Intercolonial, "or almost exactly the
same as was expended in the previous
thirty years after confederation. Today the intercolonial is costing, including repairs and replacements, two
or threo millions a year more, in excess of its earnings, than It did before this $34,000,000 was invested.
YUKON FINANCE.
The Yukon election takes place next
week. The member-elect should give
the house some informntion on Dominion finance in that district. For
the last four years the revenue from
the Yukon has been about half the
government expenditure there. The
Dnmini0n is spending $1,200,000 or
more a year, and the revenue which
was $2,000,000 in 1901, has fallen to
$600,000. But the cost of government
is no less to-day when the Population
is about 6,00*0, weli settled and organised, than when it was a moh of
30,000, producing f0ur or tive times
as much gold as the present output.
In 1901, the interior department collected $1,216,000 nnd cost less than
$300,000. Now it c0sts over $400,000
a year and collects less than $300,000
The post office receipts are less than
$20,000. and the expenditure six times
that. It costs $90,000 a year to administer justice in a district having
the population of a moderate sized
town. Yukon finance is one of the
modern mysteries.
NUMBER 83
Another member of the last parliament has been settled in office. Geo,
Smith, lately M.F. for North Oxford,
has been made a judge of the Essex
C0unty Court. He is number 83 of
members who have taken violation
of the proclaimed doctrine of their
party leaders.
THE PRICE OF KNIGHTHOOD,
Canadians who have a l0ynl respect for honors and titles coming
ostensibly from his majesty huve received a rude sh0ck from u statement
made the other duy by Han. W. H.
Tuck, retired chief justice of New
Brunswick. The former' judge gave
the particulars of an intimation mude
to him while he was yet on the bench
and when a judgeship was wanted
for a certain politician. The proposition was thnt the chief Justice
should resign on a pension equal to
his full salary, and in consideration
of his doing so he would be knighted.
Chief justice Tuck replied he Would
rather be an untitled judge than an
idle knight, and an untitled judge he
remained. Hc retired later, when he
found himself less able to perform
his duties, but admitted that he
could not claim the title ns he had
refused to make the vacancy when
needed.
A  DISAPPOINTED  AUDITOR
The death of ex-auditor genernl
McDoiigall recalls the splendid service performed by this vigilant officer during more than a quarter of a
century. Mr, McDougal had served
ten years in the legislature an purlin
ment as an uncompromising liberal
when the Mackenzie government, nl
most 0n its last legs, made him auditor general. For 18 years he scrutinised the accounts of his former
political opponents. He was strict
and vigilant, but the conservative
ministers saw the necessity of such
an officer, mid tried to keep thoir do-
partments up to his standards. Mr
McRoUgull naturally expected still
better things fiom his own party
when at last it reached Power on the
promise of greater economy nnd
stricter husiness methods. He Was
bitterly disappointed, and during his
whole period nf otllco after 1898, met
with official and ministerial resistance to his efforts to prevent irregular, dishonest nml wasteful administration. Departments, on some of
which the light has since been turned
on, triumphed over him. There were
perpetual over-rulings of his objections, and persistent refusals of in
formation   which be required.   In the
end the auditor was w,,rii out by the
struggle and allowed himself to be
lettred from service. From tbat
time until the C'uurtncy-Fyshe investigation, the machine men and grait
ers wlu. overcame the auditor had
things all their 0wn way. Hut Mr.
McDougal) lived long enough to see
some things brought to light which
he bad nut been permitted t,, investigate.

Value of Wheat
From September 1 to December .'il,
l'JUS. there was inspected of wheat
53,505,350 bushels and its actual value was $50,255,351. That means that
the average price per bushel of all
grades was not very far from one
ollar. The amount So far realised
from all the agricultural products of
tho season in the west is about $7H,-
000,000. That's a huge amount to be
distributed in a country in just a
few months. It is small wonder that
the country is prosperous, and that
confidence is returning so rapidly.
We begii. the year 1909 with a splen
did foundation for commercial and
industrial activity.
Templeman may remain
An impression which seems well
grounded, prevails here that Hon.
Mr. Templeman will be retained in
the cabinet and given a chance to se
cure another Uritish Columbia seat.
That he will essay C0m0x-Atlin is
the general belief, although it was
thought at tirst that Mr. Slnan
Would insist on retaining the seat
and "set his cap" for a Portfolio and
his friends here were confident that
he would make good, but certain appointments recently made in the department under Mr. Tempi em an'a enn
trot indicate that the la;ter is to
hold on. Doubtless there is nothing
less in store for Mr. Sloan than a
seat in the senate as the reward for
bis obedience   to   Sir   Wilfrid's   wishen.
Paying old age pensions
LAW  RECENTLY ENACTED  HY
URITISH  PARLIAMENT PUT
la EFFECT OX NEW YEAR'S
DAY.
Postmasters throughout the United
Kingdom have begun the payment ot
old age pensions under the act of tht
Hast session of parliament. Several
hundred thousand applications for
pensions have been received, of which
200 were disallowed, cbietly because
tbe applicants have been in receipt oi
poor relief. It is estimated that the
old-age pensions will cost the country
JUo.OOU.fltm annually. The highest
pension is five shillings weekly which
will be paid to the applicants having
an income belnw $105 a year.
They are getting wise
Toronto Mall and Empire: A short
time ago Mr. Hays, president of the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway company, said that when Ins road Is completed Prince Rttperl will become fl
great grain poit. It is now an
nouneed thnt the C.P.R, is preparing
to turn a considerable part of Its ox
port grain trafllc to Vancouver It
has lowered its rate on wheat shipped Iinin Alberta to Hi*1 Pacific sea
board. There Is no reason why a
wheat carrying   business  of   very   con
Blderablo magnitude should not he
done hi that section of tin ('.I'll ,
after the c|nse of the St Lawrence
navigation has stopped the move
ment 0t wheat to Kort William. Ves
sels that have brought freight from
Europe round the Cup** want return
loads and can carry wheat at a low
rate.
Women and the vote
It is argued that hecaiiso but *
small proportion ot the Women at
present entitled to vote avail theml
selves of tin franchise, they are con
tent to have conditions remain us
they are and would not exercise the
right to vote to any adequate extent
This contention does not at all meet
the fact that women as a rule are
quite as intelligent as men nnd taken
togother represent a far higher moral
and Intolloctllal standard than men.
It does not take into ace,nnt that
woman toils quite ns faithfully as her
husband or brothers m the building
up of the home add that her interest
in the welfare of the country is quite
us strong as theirs. It is only that she
has been educated through Bliccesslve
generations In tin- belief that voting
is outside hfl   "sphere"   that she hm
not given tbe attention tn municipal
and polltlcnl matters that she other
wise might Give her the tight to
