That the whole of .North America Is
faced with a very serious shortage of
potatoes is a fact that lias been put
before the public In many different
ways. It has been spoken of by politicians, the Press has given prominence to many statements regarding
this mutter and the various departments of Agriculture have been trying to make the people realize the true
farts of the situation.
Tiie nuthorfes of the different provincial Governments of Canada have
been conducting investigations regarding tlie conditions and the supply of
pototoea available. In Hritish Columbia It has been found tliat tlie supply
of potatoes is barely sufficient fnr the I
requiremt ms of the people of the j
Province for seed nnd food. The Prov
[h"Ce bf \lbrrla is fa .1 sightly belter
position and if i-= reported that there
are aboul 800,000 bushels of potatoes
available for sliij ment from the Province. Until the winter passes it wlll
bo impossible to estimate the surplus
in Saskatchewan. It is generally be-
Iteved that the surplus will not be
large though no official figures are
available up to the  present.
In Ontario it Is essoatlal thai additional supplies be Bccured ;'.e the estimates show tlmt there are not
enough potatoes to supply the demand
for either food or seed purposes,
Quebec reports thai In sous localities there is a surplus but In others
there is a shortage. H is expected
lhat the surplus will only In* large
enough to mak.- up the shortage within the Province and thut there will bc
none for oxport.
The outlook In New Brunswick ts
.i llttlo brighter as th,* surplus above
the local requirements le estimated nt
760,000 bushels,
On Monday night constable Johns,
while muklng his patrol discovered
two men cashing uway butter and beer
which they hud stolon from the ('. P,
R. freight cars. Constnble Johns plac*
ed tbi> men under arrest but tliey offered resistance und u stiff fight ensued. The two men eventually mnde
tholr escape ln the dark bul tho constable obtained possession of tho stolen goods. These two men are known
to the polico and the drug net is out,
hope Is expressed by tho Chief thai
tbey will be captured before long. Both
these men have just completed n

There is no doubl about the opinion of thfl country regarding Prohibition. There is no doubl about thi

no doubt what ts tin* besl economy

that the millions still being spool annually upon alcoholic production and

I've be'*n wondering what on earth's
the matter with the Cranbrook Herald}
I've been wondering why it is not a
force, an excitement, a live wire, an
education, a genuine herald of all
good news! I've been wondering why!
It Isn't, is ii ? You don't have to
hold on to the sidewnlk when ynu read
it; your hat doesn't blow off or your
heart doesn't pump.  Nothing happens.
Now. sir. in all abasement I suggest
something ought to happen! Why.
these are the most 'happening times
the old world ever saw, nnil the dear
sleepy old Herr.ld gives us a weekly
snore.
What's wrong?
Shall I tell you? Someone is afraid
- of someone—and everybody is afraid
of everybody and lu trying to avoid
giving any offence you give no one
any pleasure!
That's right, isn't il?
The Herald wants u dose of Black*
ford-- stonrl— Uabouchue— Maxse—
Northcllffe—that Is to say Fearlessness, courage, boldness, vim, vigour,
manliness!
Whal makes Journalism Is just that
sort of thing. The weakest meanest
man liltis straight talking anil down-
rlghl ness. Why. even my liquor
friends don't despise me so much as
Ihey would If I pretended ahout my
prohibition  views.    Ideas with  power
behind thorn; thnt is pnmatlsm.
Hut ynu must have the power!
You think people don't %«.k»? nn
IntoroBt In things, don't think, don't
gral) the live paper, don't want Ideas?
Then you are wrong, wrong sir.
There'll a lot of furious thinking going
uu In Crnnbrook. hut it doesn't get into the Herald!
Mere nre a few unsolicited suggestions!
A woeldy resume uf doings at Victoria— a column of it; An open toium,

Its work In the first place will be
mainly educational, We are all satis-
fled that the politics tlie present generation huve evolved Is not a vi ry
creditable thing. We have doubts as
to the knowledge Oi the men who talk:
• ■■..   le'runltr  11   bit   It.."- munli  tliuy   lluiM.
about the real science of say Education,  or  the   Land  System,  or  labor
problems,  or  Civil  Service  Systems;
we even wonder...but then! we must
wonder on "till truth makes all things
plain" (except women.)   It's that truth
we want tn get after: we want to know
to see for ourselves, not one side or!
t'other, but both, and round the back \
door too,   We shall hnve therefore an
Intelligence Department, shall gather'
Information relative to the problems
of the day from all sources; obtain:
speakers from all parts and parties;:
havo a comfy and Inviting central of-
fice and information bureau.
What else?
Our Intellectual work will breeo a j
desire to get things dono, If we find
fnr instance that labor conditions of
girls in stores are bad, or that our.
schools aro not making the best of nnr
boys and girls, after due Investigation,
we shall press for legislation— and
we shall get it!
And suppose somo section or per-!
sons In the community are suffering
an injustice, something detrimental to'
the teachers uf public schools, to I
nurses, lo stenographers, to bartenders, we shall make it our duty to listen
investigate, and represent conditions
to Parliament.
There Is little doubt that once we
are fully organized, and so long as we i
keep alive the vitalizing idea of our;
existence (I.e. tlie advance of social i
and pnlltieal reform on non-party
lines) we shall find plenty to do and
the variety and interest of our aetlvi- ]
ties will Insure an ever grnwing mem-

Dear Mr. Editor:- I saw In yonr Is*

Mining Act now before the House,
Perhaps the writer has read the bill.
but If not he mny by reading carefully

bill oh Is fnr as possible wide of the

Government that is objected to, but
the fact that the terms of payment are
clearly made Inpossihle and foreclosure on tho pnrt of tho Government
comes in too short a tlmo. This dnm*

Government can force upon a property

No prospector or miner fears to (rust

Tli" day cannot be far away when
thc German pooplo will bo fully a-
waltcnod from their hypnotic trance
wl ich Ims placed them for so many
yeara under tbe will power of tho autocratic military rules its progress
may in* slow at Ilrst bul Indications
point to their gradual realization of
llir truth ami wi* mny anticipate that
the rinal acl will in* swift and sure.
That tin* successful Russian revolt
by whicli thc Russian peoplo bavr* at
last thrown away their Bhacklos has
opened tli" eyes of the Oerman people
is clenrly Indicated by tho sudden
desire of the Emperor and bis satellites to apponao tliem *-itli reform
promises.
The question of how long before the
Qerman people fully awaken to the
realization of tbeir absolute power
to control tbo Government for themselves is likely io in' th,. answer to
the oft repeated question, How Loup
will the War Lust? ,
Tin* declaration of wnr by Uie United stui es must also be another
Btrong ractor in the process of awakening.

Iiy the legislators now in session at
Victoria,
lu thu terms of a critic tlie House
iias ben hi session aov; for almost six
weeks nnd only five amending acts
have been passed nnd only one or two
of those of nny real vital importance.
The trouble seems to be that much
of the proposed legislation brouglil
before tlie House Is none too well digested. That the goal aimed at by thi
bills so tar submitted ia good to a
poin, nf excellence is admitted by
frlenda und foos of tho government,
but thoro ore muny who think lhat the
methods proposed to reach the goal
desired como dangerously neur being
amateurish,
Tills is not to be wondered nt nl*
together, for the government has not
had the experience at law making tluit
'he opposition lins had, Hut Ihis can
in- remedied by full, frank and free debate and if tho government shows its
willingness to accept su«'h amendments as the opposition or their own
followers suggest on the floor of the
House, then we can rest assured that
good legislation will be the outcome.
There is a sense in which lhe opposition is responsible for poor legislation ns well as the government,
We are Kind to note the Independence and freedom of discussion that
seems to prevail In tlie House, for only
good and not ill must be the outcome
of it.
The danger arises when n government nttemptB to throttle that kind
of spirit.

Great Britain holds more than 71,-
000 prisoners of war. of whom 56,371)
are Germans, while Germany has 82,-
500 llrltlsli war prisoners. Very few
Britons are held as prisoners outside
of Germany. Proposals for exchanges
of prisoners have been considerably
advanced with Turkey, but Germany
and Austria-Hungary have not replied to tiie Hritish suggestions.
A great meeting of Russian workmen in Petrograd Ims appealed to the
worklngmen of Germany and Austria
to throw off tlie yoke of autocracy.
The Huns again amused themselves
last week by shelling Rhelms, -101
shells being thrown Into the city.
The unrest lu Spain among the people Is not reassuring, food shortage
and suspension of constitutional guarantees causing ominous symptoms.
Unless the authorities can grapple
successfully with the problem of food
shortage revolutionary uprisings may
he looked for throughout the country.
Germany's submarine warfare bas
boen the immediate cause of tlie food
shortage in Spain. The Russian example Is becoming contagious.
The United states Ambassador lu
London has placed his household ou
war rations, dinners being limited to
three courses of the simplest faro.
The members of the British Cabinet
sre also on  rations.
Sir Kdward Kemp, Minister of Militia, is investigating tlie truth of the
cabled report that Mr. McPherson, a
British member, said tlio wot canteen

THE   NEW   DENTISTS'  BILL
Victoria.—Tbe new dentists bill
fathered by Mr. Gerald McGreer, mem
ber for Richmond, bids fair to become
one of the most contentious measures
brought into the House that session
if tbe opposition promised by the 'ethi
dal" dentists materializes. This bill
whicli is of a quasi public character
will make its appearance in the Legislature within the next two or three
weeks. It deals with a situation Somewhat similar to that mot witli in the
past few years In that lt proposes
giving to tho government further con
trol over the admittance into practice
in tho province of dentists. At the
present time tlie dental council chosen
from the "ethical" dentists, sets ex
animations through an examining
hoard of five members elected by tlio
council itself. Other registered den
lists wbo because tliey have entered
into the newspaper advertising field
are frowned upon by the "ethical"
school contend that the dental council
seeks through Its examining board to
restrict the number of dentists
mlttcd to practice year by yonr. thus
eliminating to n lurge extent compe
t ition nnd at the same time keeping up
high prices. Tills Is of course the argument of the advertising dentists and
is denied by the Dental Council.
While tin* B. c. Dental Council re
quires examinations for all dentists
entering practice In tlie province
whether they are Canadian nr foreign
graduates, other provinces admit without further examination those Can
adiun dentists who have boon passed
by the Dominion Dental College. Tbe
advertising dentists think tbat B. C.
should do the same and lhat examinations should he restricted to foreign
dentists. The advertising dentists also
propose that tho provincial government should appoint two members of
the examining board of five so as to
give further publicity to those ex
amlnations and to make it certain thnt
there shall he no discrimination what,
■ver in  the examining of candidates.
A further amendment to tho act
provides against "fako" advertising,
so that the puhlic may bo ensured of
honest claims In newspnper and other
advertisements. Thc advertising dentists contend that a provision of this
nature would do much to safeguard
patrons of dental offices against fal.
ling Into the hands of unscrupulous
practitioners.
Both the members of tho ethical
school who nre against newspaper
advertising of any sort, and tho advertising dentists nro making strong
representations to the government.
The ethical people contend that, the
net as It now stands cannot he improved upon nnd should be left alone.

however, argue that the Dental Council constitutes a monopoly which is
against the puhlic. interest, that a deliberate attempt is made to shut out
new dentists and keep the dental trade
of the province among the dentists
now practicing here, that the advertising dentists nro discriminated
against and are unable to t*et employees for their growing businesses
through the refusal of tlie Council to
puss more men, aud that government
supervision of the dental examinations
is essential fn order lo give all candidates a fair opportunity of entering
tlie dental ffold.
Amendments to tlie present act liave
been presented year by year but up to
tbo present the ethical school has succeeded to a great extent in holding ila
own. What will happen tbis session
is problematical, as tlie matter Is not
a party issue in any sense, it is difficult to know how tlio private mombers will "line up". The advertising
dentists are now seeking to bring pressure upon tbe members hy means of
letters to them from tbeir constituents
on tho ground .hat to follow tbe 1*311
of the other provinces of the Dominion
is a safe procedure and to the interest
of the puhlic in adding lo the number
of qualified practising dentists nnd
reducing the cost of dentistry to the
unfortunates who have to have their
teeth repaired.

THK  FLIGHT OF BELGIUM
Tlie break of diplomatic relations
between the U. S. A. and Gormnny led
to considerable dlmunitlon of sub
scriptiens for tlie relief of tlie starving
Belgians. A crlBlg was precipitated
which meant nothing less than starv
atlon to thousands of tlie brave people
to whom In all due probability we ow
our freedon from German domination
today.
It is admitted that the French Army
would bave been swamped. Paris
taken, the French Western Coast occupied, England unable to send any
army to the continent and Germany
thus in possession of extensive submarine basis would have threatened British shipping even more so
than today. Thus we owe our vory
life to Belgium. Have we done enough
for this gallant Ally?
A letter has been addressed to Rev.
W, H. Bridge by tbo Secretary of The
Relief Fund at Montreal (A. De Jar
din) asking bis assistance in the formation of a strong local committee in
Cranbrook to organize tbis work. Mr.
Bridge is taking the matter up and
hopes to form such a committee.
Tlie urgency of the appeal Is beyond words. Every step in the advance nf tbo Allies must mean tbo
deepening of Belgium's suffering. It
Is perhaps the most tragic situation in
history and no effort or sacrifice must
be omitted which will in any wny
alleviate It. We appeal to every man
woman nnd child In Cranhrook to do
something—sacrifice something—even
if it hurts badly to save these gallant
people.
Subscriptions nnd communications
may bo sent in tlio meantime to Rev.
W. If. Bridge.
