.Siildier In France Tells Story of Hon
Mn.im-  Fred   Lister  Got   His
Own   Way
Major Fred Llsler, a Kootenay soldier whose home is in Cranbrook, Is
the subject of a tale in which typical
British Columbia soldiery is evident,
wriies a comrade from "Somewhere
lu France" Mojjr Lister lias won
tlie I' S, 0, and tlie Military Cross.
Some time ago he was wounded aud
from ;t base hospital was sent back tu
England, where he spent -everal
mouths in convalescence,
A lew weeks ago he decided thai he
was all right agi'in and told the doctors DO. They did not i.-ree With llil'l
however, and said that he must remain quiet tor awhile. Although he
is a ogod soldier the major could not
see It that way. and the more he
thought about it the more absurd il
seemed to him that he should remain
in England.
One flue day. the siory goes, the
major was down at lhe pier aHmt the
time a hoot, hound for France, was
pulling off. Jus! then a bunch of hoys
on tholr way back to the lines passed
him and went aboard. He hesitated
for half a minute, looked around and
turning toward the l-Uat made a hasty
advance up tl«- gr.nB plank. He
bluffed his way pnBt the offlcor at
tlie tup and on in among the otlior
khnkl clad lads. Keeping out ol' sight
until  the transport  slipped off end!
pointed her UOBq towards the
battlefield the nia.'.r kepi himsell
husy dodging tho purser and
other officers. Without ticket, pnsa-
porl or anj excuse or any kind
to glvo for his reason to be on
his way back to heal the Huns, tho
major bluffed his way through and a
few days later was again back with
Ills hoys fn the riling tine, who were I
surprised hut glad to see him.
"It is Incidents like this one that

war," the comrade writes. "All the!

mines, the still more famous Hunker

anza exists are parallel, or subsidiary
ranges of the great Rocky Mountain:
system and can be traced through
northern Idaho and across the Inter-
national Boundary where they assert
themselves under the names of the
McGllllvray and Y?hk Ranges and
then coalesce along the line from
Moyie to Kitchener in the Purcell I
Range, which, in turn, is a subsidiary
or the great Selkirk system. The
summit line of Purcell Range bears

and the critics overlook the fact thai
this is not a Static War. New con-
diious are daily arising requiring new

Another error these critics fall Into,

officials fortunately tin not tell all'
thoy knnw. ami Mr, Koosevell must
i*pali;-e this since Secretary Dnker put!
him wise.
The trouble in these untimely and'

among the ptbple, a feeling thai things
are not going as well as they should,
and they frequently compel ihe
authorities to disclose their war

The inconceivable burden "f war
control is in the hands of the best
men. both in Kngland and the ITnlted
States; these men are doing their utmost to meet the huge demands of the
war and are doing It successfully in
the face of almost Insuperable difficulties; but they are not Supermen
and mistakes must he expected.
The perpetual agitation for change
of leaders, if successful, as ii sometimes happens, impairs efficiency,
hampers velocity mid raniiMt and never will avoid mistakes.
Constructive criticism is al all time
desirable and necessary but the criticism usually flung at the responsible
heads Ik destructive in iis character
and generally founded on falsd information or lack n[ Information.
The fact cannot he disguised that
the question or Food Supply in Kngland and Fraace is reaching an extremely critical stage, demanding immediate and drastic action. Lord
Rhonda states in clear and unmistakable languabe that the food shortage
must be made good to enable ns to defeat the enemy.
The responsibility for the supplies
now rests with Canada aud the United
States. Delay in shipping those supplies is dangerous, it might he fatal.
Drastic rationing lias already been
put initt effect In  the  United States.
What is Canada doing towards helping to make up the deficit? Arc we

ljet us give a truthful answer, the
self-denials we must all practice soon
ur or later have not yet been cultivated to any appreciable extent, and what

at i his period ot" the year, are issued
by so many of our financial aud commercial institutions. The strain due

loss in efficiency is being met, as far
as possible, by training lhe young and
elderly lo fill the gaps already made
nd those now being caused by the
operation of the Military Service Act.
This measure, which formed the subject of much bitter ronii'.ivor y, received general en-lrrsatlon on December 17th, and is now the settled law of
the laud. The present Government is
composed of representatives of Lhe
two leading political parties, and is
supported by a very large majority.
The question of placing the entire
resources of the country In men, material and wealth at the disposal of
the Government for the effective prosecution of lhe war was settled decisively by the people, and of tills de-

vigour is lo be found in the decision
to advance railway rates, to provide
more shipping and to control the prices and the consumption 'if those food

Allies. These decided steps, following so closely upon the clear expression of ihe will of the people, have
removed much of the uncertainty
•overhanging business conditions, and
this cannot but lead to all the productive forces of the country cooperating with the Government in the
national plans.
Thi' Dominion 'Government is developing t'J tlie utmost the resources
at its command for the building of
modern steel cargo steamers, for
which there is a pressing need.
Three types of vessels, ranging from
3,000 to 10,000 tons in capacity, are
being considered. One of the first
and greatest difficulties to be Overcome is the providing for a supply of
the necessary ship p'ates nnd shapes.
At present builders are experiencing

During 1017 tlioro was a remarkable development in shipbuilding at
many points it; the   Dominion,   due
largely to the 'irdet's placed by the
Imperial Munitions Hoard At ihe
close of the year these orders involved an outlay of $00,000,000 on
over one hundred steVl or wooden
craft with a total carrying capacity
of 860,000 tons Orders from Norwegian shipping companies have been
placed for twenty-two sled vessels
of 8,600 tons dead weight each In

The foregoing plans for making the
Dominion self-contained with regard
to shipbuilding arc expected to provide a s'.mnd basis for the revival oj
a valuable industry, which had de.
clined to negligible proportions as a
result of European competition. Practical shipping men do not expect the
return to normal conditions until
three or fl.iur years after the war, and
the policy of subsidizing dry docks

on a considerable scale.

Farmers have heen unwilling to

down. A spell of unusual cold weather necessitated the diversion to domestic use of fuel intended fl>r industrial purposes. To grapple with the
situation the Canadian Railway Board
is asking the Government lo penult
drastic measures to be taken, one
of which is to tear up the rails on
non-essential lines, so that they may'
be used <in lines upon which Traffic i

Tl:.', does not appear to be any,
lack of demand for factory products.
The high prices of the past year are;

the November catch in the Province

Not only is tiie domestic consumption
of fish increasing, but the volume of
the exports is strikingly in excess of
that of previous years, as is shown by
; tht- November returns, the amount
being H.315.9fe;i, as compared with
12,600,02] a year ago.
Railway Earning*
The gross earnings of the three
railway systems in Canada for the
calendar year aggregated $2;.4,740,0oi)
as compared with $243.-117,000 in 1910,
and with $lS4,21S,O00 for IB16 The
large Increase in the volume ol goods
carried is remarkable, in view .if the
inability of the companies io make
the usual annual additions tn tltoir
rolling stock, and to maintain theft1
roadbeds in proper condition Ai present in some districts the available
lolling slock, has been diverted to ihe
carrying ot fuel, with the result that
other classes nf huslness have been
demoralized. To cope with the sllua-,
tion the Railway Board has endeavored witli some success, in co-operation
with Washington, io procure tlie return of a large number of Canodlai
cars. This will afford some temporary relief. Traffic, however, promises
to increase in 1918 as rapidly as it
lias done since 1915, hut there is little
hope of a corresponding Improvement
in transportation facilities, Croat
economies will no doubt he effected
by the centralized management arranged by the Government, hut tho delay in permitting an increase In railway rates proportionate to the cost '
of operation has left the railways with,
very large arrears of maintenance
work to be overtaken, before they can
hope to handle the traffic business
of the country with ordinary effic-
iency, One notable step already taken is tlie enforced limitation "f passenger services which have hitherto
been on a comparative basts.
Banking and Finance
At the close of November the depos-;
its of the chartered hanks amounted
to $1,833,023,000, as compardc with
$1,637,463,000 a year ago. This substantial gain Is represented by ad-'
ditional liquid resources. The cash
and securities held at the end of November were $542,806,000, as compared with $349,807,000 a year ago. The
dei«.islts payable after notice increased during the year from .*S;tu.r>93.noi.
to $1.008.i;r.S,000 and there was a simi- '
iar Increase iu demand deposits. A
large number of chartered hunks issued their annual statements during
December, and in every case the earnings were somewhat better than in
the previous yenr although nol in
proportion to the increased turnover.
The total amount of the securities
issued by the Domin?Jn Governmeni
for all purposes during the year was
$t,7ri.l.S2.iiO0, which is very much larger than tlie amount issued in any
previous year. This Is n result of the
inability of Canada to borrow abroad,
and of the corresponding decrease in
the amount of tlie securities issued hy
provincial governments and municipalities.

As he lies with snowy Utiles o'er

For no matter how you shout it, lie

He won'i know how many teardrops

If you think some praise is one him,
now's the time to slip it to htm,
For he can not read his tombstone
