written tho following Interesting description of his visit here In his recently
published book entitled. "A Motor Tour

town, the pilot car dashing off at a
clip which would have brought disaster on anything but a first-class sur-
face. The Cranbrookltea were evidently very proud of a road which
seemed to be without sinuosity or un-
evenness. Everybody took it for
granted that we were tn no hurry,
and it was darkly hinted that we

then came a bad stretch of swamp to
the International boundary at Yahk,
where I should be compelled to take
to tlte railroad ties over a dangerous
loop track as far as Kitchener, a distance of fourteen miles, after which
there was a very steep and narrow
mountain road over the Goat River

near the Kootenay lake, leaving me
hopelessly stranded amid the log

landing stage for steamers to and

further on. By engaging guides,
however, 1 might be able to find a

"Cranbrook, «.('.," April Snd, 1»I4.
What will we say or the hard times
of 1914? If we are honest und reasonably Intelligent, we shall not blame
the tariff uct, nor the currency bill,
nor the land schemes of Henry
George. Illume rather the waBte of
war. For it Is not nn American affair. Hard times is a world-wido concern. Unemployed men tramp every
road In France; "La France c'ent un
pays de mlsore" (France Is a land of
misery), said a Frenchman to me today. A hundred thousand unemployed are on the streets of llerlln,
Why? This Is the reason In part.:
The capital consumed in war and war
preparation — about $11,000,000,000
last year in Europe-la chiefly borrowed money, money that ought to have
been loaned or used for enterprise. The
men of war system withdraws from,
real work to tramp the fields hi shoddy uniforms at wages of a cent or
two a day, are men who ought to be.
earning a dollar a day lu useful labor.;
The others support them by taxes.,
Dy taxes they pay interest ou a hundred years of money borrowed for the.
waste of wur. More taxes mean more
armament, more waste of capital,
higher prices for necessities, reduced
consumption and more and more men
unemployed. Every man employed means unother unemployed. Every
dreadnought built tn Europe means
more women taking In washing,
more babies dying of neglect.
Under the head of "Crisis Inexcusable,." Monthorou of the Paris Journal discusses the full of the great finance house of Cliurlea Victor and the
situation which caused it,
"The silly armaments of Europe are
coating billions of francs; tlie press
campaign In every country, set going
to prove the necessity of armament,
already cost most dearly and will
to justify IU urgency and extent, has
cost more to the end. The business
man reads as ho rises, in the morning
papers, page after page of wise dissertation on plans of mobilization, on
the urgoncy or reforms in guns and
military epuipment, on the modification of tactics of this or that branch
of war. Nothing of industry, commerce, agriculture or manufacture-
only guns and ships. With all this
he finds a black picture of the distress
of France, of this or that method of
pretending to make good thc nation's deficits. The melancholy business man passes on to the third
page. The latest news Is alive with
sensations. The crisis in Albania
grows 'more grave Discontent in
Kpirus will set the Balkan again in
flames! Revolution seethes In Sofia!
Turkey buys every morning a new
dreadnaught! * * * The whole country is filled with an atmosphere of
trouble, the violences of political parties raging around a financial condition, shameful enough hut not desperate."
The financier dares buy nothing. He
can sell nothing. The air Is poisoned
by war. Nobody takes chances on
anything now, while old ventures narrow their risks. It Is no matter of
overproduction; there is no overproduction. But no one is tuking freBh
chances. Money Is timid, espeslally
in stormy weather. It does not venture out when It can not see its way
back. Hate is bad for all forms of
Tho war system Is built on hate-
hatred of nobody in particular, only
of "enemies.' The costliest thing ln
tho world Is "impersonal hate." How
long shall we stand It?—Exchange.

■ German cannot "walk on the grass"
lie must keep to the path.   He cannot
i do this, that or the other thing.   His
; every-day life is cribbed, cabined and
confined by laws and by-lawB and po-
1 lice regulations, to which no free Brlt-
! Ish subject or American citizen would
submit tor a moment.   So we chatter
! and our joint peoples have well-nigh
got the lock-jaw over laughing at this
absurd  German   who  speaks  English
with so funny an accent and always
carries sausages in his pocket.   Then
we go out aud buy and eat diseased
meat because the butchers are "free"
to sell It—pay good cloth prices for
shoddy  because tho    merchants    are
"free" not to label    it—buy   brown-

i bankrupt    ourselves  by    paying for
, showy funerals because there are no
meddlesome   laws  to   prevent  It.
Just who the laugh Is on in the end,
may be clear. There ceralnly never
was perpetrated a more ludicrous and
costly hit of bad logic than the theory
that a free democracy cannot permit
itself to be minutely novernod by n
centralized executive. That Is exactly
what a free democracy-andonly a free

One of the ureatest jokes ever per-
p trati-d on the people of this North
American Continent—that Ih, of Canada and the I'nited States—Is the
houx that they are "free" becuusie they
are not much bothered by Rovern-
niental roKulations. They ure ''free"
because they can do what {hey
please. In the sume sense, a baby Is
"free" when It Is where It can reach
a bottle of poison nnd drink Us contents under tlie Impression that It Is
food. A man may be "free" to walk
from danger. Many a tidal wave of
to prevent him from stepping off a
precipice on a dark night; but would
he really not be "freer" to wnlk where
fancy might lead If he knew that
there was a railing at the edge of
thc precipice and that there was no
danger? Would not the very fear of
walking off the unrailed precipice
constitute a far greater encroachment
on Ids "freedom" than would a stone
wall at that point ten-foot high?
* * *
Yet that Is the very position of our
people who Imagine that they are
"free" because they are not protected
from danger. M any a tidal wnvo of

The effort would also stimulate a
pride ln civic cleanliness among the
citizens, which would have a far reaching effect. Let's have a clean-up day

I wonder we have faith in them. No
wonder we are willing to offer tbem
to^you for trial entirely at our risk.
Among other things, they contain
Pepsin and Bismuth, two of the great-

What l'lpe May Be Used to Increase

(II. V. Parker)
During the past week, while searching for other information the following
excerpts liave come to my notice. It
Is here pointed out very clearly, that
the life of wooden pipe is not dependent upon the life of the wood; but up-
cal is man. Alter all, danger was no | 0n the life of the steel wire with which
greater there than at every turn of
the crowded city thoroughfares, where
no one knew from what direction it
mimiit come.   Here, every iibre, every
it is wound.
The writer has examined carefully
the wire on the pipe which was laid in
Cranbrook in 1905.   Aside from what
weight. We scaled nearly four thousand pounds with only twe occupants,
and we developed nominally 30 h. p.,
American rating, which is considerably
higher than the EirgUsh rating; but 1
doubt whether we were getting out of
tlie engines at tliat time as much
power as that. Minimum weight with
maximum power is essential for mountain climbing, and it was clear that
an accompanying car to bear a proportion of the load would have been
a decided advantage for such a tour.
Block and tackle might have been
mailed and much time would have
been consequently saved.
ln thc distance the mountains were
weaving a illmy pattern on the skyline; in the foreground, Nature, in
impressionistic abandon, had Hunt*,
great splashes of colour upon the
landscape, and was conjuring up effective contrasts of high light and
shadow. There was scarcely a hut
and seldom u puff of smoke to humanize the lonely valleyH. A new-comer
might claim all the sensation aud
