As against this the* German brow

the Atlantic, and that vvill echo still
through centuries of time.
But we only deceive ourselves if we
hide the fact that the fate of the war
���and with it all that is best in the
world���hangs in the balance.
What are wc to do?
Our soldiers in the field have done,
and arc doing, all that heroism can
inspire and all that endurance can
fulfil. Are wc doing our share at
home? Wc go about our tranquil
lives scarcely disturbed. Here and
there, the swift dart of death, that
strikes "somewhere in France," reaches, with its double, point, somewhere
in Canada, a mother's heart. We pause
a moment in our sympathy, and pass
on. To and fro wc go about our business. Wc pay our easy taxes, and
subscribe to our so-called patriotic
loan, so issued that the hungriest
money-lender in New York is glad to
clamor for a share ot it. Wc cat,
drink, and are merry, or, at least, imt
sad, professing a new philosophy of
life as our sympathies grow dull to

Arc we, the people of Canada who
are at home, doing our proper part
to help to win the war?
If a war were conducted with lhe
full strength of a nation, il would
mean that every part of the fighting
power, the labor, and lhe resources
of lhe country were being used towards a single end. Each man would
either be fighting or engaged in providing materials of war, food, clothes
and transport for those that were
fighting, with such extra food and
such few clothes as were needed for
themselves while engaged in the task.
This is a war ece'nomy. This is the
fashion in which the energies uf a
nation would be directed if some oni-
niscent despot directed them and
controlled the life adn activity of every man.
A nation so organized, if it were
possible, would be multiplied as ten
to one.
it for pianos, pianolas, victrolas, tr.it
ting buggies, hooks, moving pictures
pleasure cars, and so on, is just a.
much a Avar-drone as the num who
made them.
In other words, the futrher we look
into the case the worse it gels, Since
food is a war material wc might have
supposed at first sight that our vast
agricultural population was really
employed in working to win the war.
Indeed a lot of nonsense to this effect has been spoken and printed
during thc past few years. If all our
farmers were working directly for the
Government, if all that they produced
were handed over to the Government,
and they themselves received out of it
only enough food and clothes to keep
them going, then, indeed, they would
be doing war work. For the Government could cither use the food to feed
the soldiers or sell if to the foreigners for the munitions. But this is not
the case.
Exactly the same argument applies
to the export trade. It is often
though that if such and such a thing
is manufatcured in Canada and sold
abroad, then since this brings money
into thc country with which we can
buy war material to pay soldiers, the
export trade is a direct contribution
towards the war. Sheer fallacy nnd
confusion, if imt worse. Export in
private hands pays only its tax to thc
Government, not its product. The export workers exchange tlieir nine-
tenlbs of what they make, for llieir
own consumption, Here, again, drone
trades   with   drone,   and   the   country
profits���apart from its little tax -���

jl. It is as if an industrious farmer
and his family had worked hard for a
generation and amassed flocks and
herds, barns aud buildings, and good
stnres of provisions and grain; then,
in a moment of insanity, had set to
work to burn the buildings, and iu lhe
warm light of the flames kill and devour the animals, and gorge them-
selvse with the grain aud fodder,
throwing the rest away. In this mad
orgy une sou uf the family, more id-
The first is the method that nations
adopt only in  their despair, only  in
the last agonies of foreign  conquest,
as when Richmond fell, or when the
Boers fought on in grim desperation
across the naked veldt.     Here national production  ends,  save only  for  necessary  food and  war  supplies.    Private industry is gone,    Luxury is dead. I success
All of ihe nation's men are gathered loans,
into a single hand.    They do as they ; market
are told.    They fight. Ihey work  Ihey
die.    Its women are in  the fields; or
they are making bandages;  Ihey tend
the sick;  they pray beside  the dying.
Thus can a nation stand, grim and
terrible, its back against the wall, till
it goes down, all in one heap, glorious. In the wild onslaughts of the
great conquests of the past, nations
have died like this.
But for us, here and now, and in lhe
short time that we have, this is not
possible. Outside invasion could
force us to it, in a jumbled wreck,
with no choice of our own. Hut to
accomplish this at a word of command
inside our present complex industrial
system is not possible. 11 is too intricate, too complicated, to be done
by command from above. To enlist

army, to direct their work and assign

be needed.

A New Era In The Politics of
British Columbia.
"As far as my experience goes, more politicians. . . .
fail from attempting to do what they deem the
expedient thing when they  should  do  what  in
their hearts they know is the just thing, than from
any other cause."
"T^ HAVE NEVER been in a more plainly furnished of-
-"^ fice than that of the Premier of British Columbia. Wil*
Ham Brewster, thai Puritan wlm came in 1620to Plymouth
aboard the Mayflower, could nol have selected table and
chairs of more severely plain design.On the walls there is
one decoration���a heavily framed parchment upon which
is printed in Old'English the words of John Ruskin which
1 have here reprinted,
fl Premier Brewster delights in reading Ruskin. Mere is
a paragraph wliich might have applied to the members oi
the late administration in British Columbia:
"I'or there is one fixed idea in  lhe mind ol  every
European progressive politician al this time; namely
that by a certain application of financial art, and by
the erection of a certain quantity of new' buildings on
a collossal scale, ii will be possible for society hereafter
to pass it's entire life in eating, smoking, harlotry and
talk; without doing anything whatever with its hands
and feet of a laborious character."
fl British Columbia's new governmeni is undertaking to
follow a policy which regards the government of this province as a husiness organization rather than a charitable institution.    They are laying down the law that everyone
getting government money shall give good value in return.
This will apply to the great railroad corporations as well
as to the men who work with picks and shovels,
fl Old politicians tell me that  the idea of doing what  is
just rather than what is politically expedient was first tried
out in this Dominion by the late Alexander Mackenzie,
who as prime minister of Canada did not find it to work
out well in the holding of the party together.
fl Mr. Brewster finds many obstacles in his course.    Hi.s
work is doubly hard because of the slackness of his predecessors in office.    Already the opposition is charging
him with failing to line up to his pledges by allowing the
appointment of members of his own party to certain offices
fl But ask some of the big fellows from Montreal, Toronto,
St. Paul, or New York what they think of Brewster and
Honest John.    Through their tears they will tell you that
since the old government went out they have not a friend
left in British   Columbia.    They   say   that ;thihgs   have
changed; that the public conscicence has awakened; that
the people are ready now to support public men who place
justice ahead of expediency.

Forestry Draft Leaving Soon
"T/ANCOUVER'S own Forestry Draft, C.E.F., is now
' almost at full strength and this popular new local unit
which is composed of the pick of the western woodsmen
and lumbermen hopes to leave for the Old Country in the
course of from eight to ten days.
If.It is expected that the Vancouver Draft will more than
uphold the reputation of British Columbia's Foresters, as
this is the only corps recruiting or recruited in this Province that is commanded by practical men who understand
the Western men and Western methods.
tf The officers who have raised this draft, Capt. Cosmo
Bruce, O.C., and Lieut. W. F. T. Stewart are both going
overseas with the draft and evryone, officers and men, are
impatient for the final orders to entrain as recruiting is
not the most congenial of occupations for men used to the
outdoor life.
fl To complete the establishment 20 more men are re
quired but it is expected that by the end of the week the
total number will be available, so that it is not too late
to sign up yet with this popular unit and as all appointments are still vacant everyone has an equal opportunity
for promotion, which promotion will be made entirely on
the merits of each man.
fl Technical pay is also paid to men who can qualify but
this does not come into force until,the men are actually in
operation in the woods of the Old Country, when each man
will be given a chance of proving his worth.
fl The Heeadquarters are at 521 Pender Street West, where
a hearty welcome is extended to all. Office is open daily

Prevention qf Coal Shortage
^HIS winter wc have had a coal "famine" and that s.uf-
%-/ fering has accompanied the shortage of this necessity
is undeniable. The average citizen has a notoriously short
memory, but now is the time to impress upon him that, in
many cases, the suffering was due to lack of foresight. ' In
Canada many people buy in small quantities���often only
one ton. Tf, for any cause, there is a shortage of coal improvident householders demand that the coaf dealers do thc
impossible, namely,, that they supply fuel that is unobtainable. Whereas, had they purchased their coal in the summer or autumn, there would be ample supplies available.
���fl While some large consumers, such as manufacturers
cannot store a six months' supply, most householders can!
with their present bins, or with enlarge bins, store coal to
meet their requirements till March or April.
fl In recent years, we have had two coal "famines," firsl
in 1901-02, the year of the coal miners' strike, and second,
this year, when the severity of the weather and thee extra-
.���olrdirjary prosperity /'in the United States caused an unprer
Mr. Al. R. Kelly, Enthusiast And Worker
fJMONG the members of the organization in charge of
-k-"- the War Dance, an outstanding figure is Mr. Kelly.
We have in Vancouver few more public-spirited young
business men than Mr. Kelly. He is to'the front in all
movements working for the city's welfare. He believes
religiously in the future of Vancouver and of British Columbia.
fl Though a native of the Great Republic to the south, we
havej few more loyal or patriotic citizens than the same
Kelly. During the past two years he was the captain in
the business district of this city of the team which collected
for the Patriotic Fund. To him fell the splendid honor of
leading the whole of Greater Vancouver during that period in the sums collected for the Fund.
fl And when you are talking War Dance you are on a subject with which Mr. Kelly is just a little bit familiar. He
was horn on the plains of North Dakota somewhere about
1879 in thc days when the Blackfeet sometimes went on a
hike. He can remember one winter when he and his father and mother had to live in a dug-out many feet under
the earth in order lo hide from the Indians. Fort Toiten
Was <S1 miles awa)' from the Kelly homestead. One day
the little settlement was attacked by some of the braves
afid Kelly's father had to ride the 81 miles to get theT. S.

Hail! Queen qf the Carnival!
'TT'N a week nominations close for Queen of the Carnival
-*-   in the big four day celebration the B. C. Commercial
Travellers are now in the midst of preparing for the War
Dance.    There is a good deal of interest attaching to the
contest���so much that some of the houses have been in
difficulty to decide on a candidate.    Once the nominees
are all in the field, there will be a lively canvass till the last
vote is in and some young lady has been selected to act
as "Miss Vancouver, Queen of the Carnival."
fl The Commercial Travelers never do anything by halves,
and it is their intention to provide a Court of honor, a retinue of Maids of Honor, a Royal Palace at the War Dance
and a number of most interesting functions in which the
Queen and her Court will be featured.    Needless to say
the royal robes necessary for the lady who is to be crowned
Queen of the Carnival will also be suitably provided.    Just
what Spokane did in the way of making "Miss Spokane'
famous and giving widespread publicity to the city which
elected the young lady, the Commercial Travellers will do
for "Miss Vancouver."
fl When voting starts each nominee is to be provided with
tickets of distinctive color/each of which will count for one
hundred votes and .will cost ten cents. The backers of each
candidate will make a campaign to sell tickets and votes

The Pageant
CHE Commercial Travellers'  War  Dance will not be
only a festival, a holiday entertainment: it will partake
of the nature of A Pageant.
fl Just look at the word, do you not see at once that it must
come from the same root that gives us the word "page"
of a book? Like the page of a good, interesting and amusing book it will entertain, instruct, inform, amuse���some
there are who claim that the word has more to do with
"stage" or "platform.'' Let me accept that meaning too
���if you like. Surely the stage, the public platform have
lhe same functions.
fl Queen Margaret saw a pageant at Coventry, England,
in 1847 and was mightily pleased with it���as all the Margarets will be with Our Pageant in 1917.
fl .In 1450 the Smiths' Guild paid five pence���fivepence

Ah! Five Pence was a lot of money then, you could not
get many potatoes into Gosford Street for fiyepence today. Xow look at this fact. The 20th century has seen a
great revival in England', a greater revival in America of
ihe Old Pageant. For centuries the people of the Continent of Europe laughed al the Briton for "taking his pleasures sadly." England: Canada, had learned that to put
color into the sl reels, to put people into fancy dress, to
"make merry" in a sober, rational way, was good for health.

who has an enviable record. Both Mr. Whiteside and

WG..IEN' workers have been sn

Great Uritain that the)' are
being tried in the great workshops of
Canada. Everywhere they are proving themselves to be keen rivals to
men, and It is now evident that the
home Is not the only place where a
woman may excel in work calculated
to advance the welfare of mankind.
The Canadian Pacific Railway Co. has
sent thousands of its male employees
for service in Europe, and as a consequence male workers have become
scarce In various departments of industry. In 1916 women workers were
introduced into the Canadian Pacific
Angus Shops at Montreal. At present
there are two hundred of them engaged in the shops.
These women workers have been
organized and work under the supervision of Mrs. J. W. Bell, wife of Mr.
Bell, superintendent of the Montreal
Windsor Street Station building. Mrs.
Bell Is enthusiastic over the success
of the efforts of those entrusted to
her charge, and considers that the
field of manual labor requiring skill
and application is one in which wo
men will yet exercise a wide influence.
A visl' to the women workers in
the Angus Shops is inspiring. The

"But Creat Britain lias been obliged tn burrow heavily
iu New York and she had been obliged tn lodge collateral
in Xew York as security fur her borrowings. 1 think it is
unfortunate that she has been sn obliged, but it is the fact,
and it is an object to her to find securities of a high cptali-
ty which she can deposit as collateral. I went to New
York a year ago last fall at the request of the Imperial
Treasury to meet Lord\ Reading and thc representatives
of the Treasury. 1 thought that they would be obliged
to give collateral later on and I made the proposition at
that time that as wc owed them, let us say, $1,000,000,000,
and as they required collateral in New York, we should
fund our debt of $100,000,000 to them by issuing them our
securities for the same period and at tlie same rate as they
had issued their in the London market, and that they
should use that collateral to borrow against in New York,
where our credit is about as high as that of any country
in the world. Later that plan turned out to be of great advantage both to Great Britain antl to us, as it gave them
more than $100,000,000 of high-class collateral which they
put up with other securities against their $250,000,000 loan.
While it gave them collateral to thc extent of $100,000,000
or more, it gave us also an advantage in that we funded j 0f 70 cents is paid on all classes of wood
our floating debt to Great Britain.   That simply refers to
advances on account.    But it liquidated the open account
in respect to these advances.   Tbe result is that we funded
our debt.
"It was not only an advantage to Canada tn make an
is-fue in pay off her indebtedness, but lhal issue was made
without any expense tu Canada and at precisely the same
rate of interest as Creat Britain bad borrowed nu the Lon-
don market nn the Imperial credit. We hilt! the further advantage of the exchange situation, which for some time
had been favorable to us. and iu determining  tlic amount

Lord Shaughnessy has stated that as the Canadian Pacific Railway was handling large quantities of freight via
Vancouver and Vladivostok, it was thought desirable that
a principal officer of the company should visit Russia witli
the view of acquiring such geographical and other information as might be of service in dealing with transportation
problems, and vice-president G. Bury has personally gone
to look into these developments. ���

The prohibition nl imports nf non-essentials will have
only a less effect in the solution of the problem. In some
phases of thc problem stern measures have been adopted.
Jn two particulars the recommendation is remarkable.
Beef cattle are to be killed ill largei numbers than formerly, to the point of depleting herds. The killing of
beeves will increase thc supply nf meat and decrease the
importation of cattle feeds. Then. also, thc premier re-
.|iiires the leveling of forests to supply the lumber demand,
and al thc same time prohibits thc importation nf lumber.
Prohibited articles nf import include all classes of luxuries and a large list nf articles which Englishmen baVe
long regarded as necessities. The institution of these
prohibitions will have a serious efefct

of the municipalities in tbe Niagara district in reserve account $970,542. The total average horsepower used in the

gests that, instead nf obtaining the
money from parents and the public
generally, who patronize the concerts
and celebrations, the pupils themselves, with the advice and assistance
of their teachers, create some wealth
which may be devoted to patriotic
purposes. Every dollar's worth of
food stuff produced by boys and giri.*
in British Columbia adds so much
more to the staying power oi tbe nation. .Moreover, the mere fact that
thc boys and girls of tbis Province
have contributed in such a practical
way to the needs of the' country ill
such a time of national stress and anxiety will' in itself reflect great credit
upon them, and is something that will
be remembered by every one ."ith
pride antl gratitude.
Lines of Work suggested
The most readily available and most
universal means to be adopted is the
cultivation of a plot of ground. It
docs not retpiirc a large plot to yield
under normal conditions a dollar's
worth of vegetables. Tbe smallest
child in school, with a very little assistance and direction, can plant and
take care of a plot 5 x 10 feet for
the  season.     Such  a  plot  would  ag-

Ottawa, Mar. I.���The following
confession of a Returned Egg is not
without interest. We will give it at
near as possible in the words ..f the
victim with an ocasional question by
the reporter to keep the story t<. the
"I am free after being a year in
jail! \VJiat are niy feelings now that
I mn restored t.. Bociety? What is
there in my experience which may be
helpful t.. others? Let me begin at
lhe beginning with my sad little story.
''It was just twelve months ago
j this June that I was sentenced to pris-
uii for an indeterminate period. It
was. I remember, to be not more than
two years, and it might be considerably less if my behavior was good
and my conduct approved by the authorities. At the time I did not .-'.insider thc judge lenient, nor did I lake
much comfort in the thought that I
could   work  out  my  own   salvation.
"My chief feeling was one of resentj
ment. I had been sentenced for what
do you think? For being fresh! How
could an egg only a week old be anything else? Besides it wns a fault
that I could have outgrown hail Ihey
given me chance. But inb. 1'rison
bars for me. Do you wonder that I
fume and almost fret myself into..a
fricasee when 1 look hack upon that
piece  of  injustice.
"However, tliere were several million in the same plight, some young
like myself, others older, but not'one
had���-as yet. Innocent, virginal almost, wishing nothing so much as
early martyrdom in some goc I cause,
we were torn form our pastoral surroundings and hurried to the dungeon.
I do not know what happened to my
companions, but 1 know that for impart I was not even given time to
bid my mother good-bye.
"I need not dwell on my trial or
the indignities that were rained upon
me by a fat, red-faced man who put
me to thc question with a candle. He
seemed to search my very soul. II
was, I recollect, an onion cater, and
I did not think any more of him for
that. It was on his say-so that 1
went down for twelve months. T shall
never forgive him. My fondest hope
is that wc shall meet again and that
he will try to eat me and choke to
death in thc attempt. Relieve me I
have something in my bosom right
now besides revenge 'that would put
him to the bad. An egg doesn't stick
around in jail for twelve months for
nothing. I have an accumulated rage
in my heart that will poison a goat."
"What was the most distresing feature of your life in prison" asked the
"The atmosphere. By all odds, the
atmosphere. I shall never forget it���
the pungent, biting reek of it. My
very soul is soden with it. If I come
out of prisou with my nature embittered put it down to the atmosphere.
It got into me deep. 1 am not even
like the curate's egg, sweet in spots.
My disposition has been soured all
through. The atmosphere was awful.
I went into that horrible place a
brown egg���and look at me now. As
white as Mary's little lamb and ten
times  as  tough."
"Where there no alleviations?" the
reporter  inquired.
"Oh, yes," replied . the Returned
F.gg, with a wistful smile. "Mr. J.
W. Flavelle used to visit mc in prison. People say that he was primarily responsible for putting mc there,
but I can't belicvce it���he is such a
kind, good man.    I'm  sure.he wished
me well.   He used to say the most
beautiful things to inc.
"For example, he would tell me thai
it isn't what yon .in hut whal yon are
that makes for character. 'Therefore'
lie would say. wiih his Shcrbourne
Street Sunday School smile; 'remember thai il is your duly not onlv (0
be go...1 but to slay good. If you
don't stay good you will greatly disappoint me.'
"Then 1 would reassure him and tell
him that I would do my best, and he
would take me in his hand and dlisl
me off and call me his precious. 11
almost became a scandal the way lie
would call me his precious, bul Ile
meant it only in ,i fatherly way. What
he had in his mind was how precious
I and my companions would be, say at
Christmas time, when we would be
released and mixed in with thc new
laid eggs ai a dollar a dozen. Vou
can figure out for yourself insi how
precious a few million two and a
half cent eggs would be to Mr. Flavelle when sold at the right time for
eight cents apiece.
"No," said the Returned Egg, "Mr.
Flavelle never used words to me that
could not have bceen uttered with
perfect propriety to the world at
large. And he never thought any
more of me than he did of any other
egg. Anybody who says that he did
is a liar and a slanderer. His whole
concern was for my state of health.
I had to be strong to grapple with
the high cost of living when 1 came
out and, thanks to Mr. Flavelle. 1 am
strong. If you don't believe it. just
try a fall with me and see how strong
1   am.
"It is a great satisfaction to nu,"
continued the Returned Egg," to see
my benefactor so honored by the Borden Government. lie is, 1 understand. Chairman of the Imperial
Munitions Board. Forgive me a poor
little joke. From cold storage eggs
to shrapnel. From one high explosive
to another���both shell games. Mr.
Flavelle is a wonderful man. And
so keen on uplift.
"Look at nic for uplift. Young
and upspotted from the world I was
worth three cents.. Old and pickled
I'm worth eight cents. Can you beat
it? Who did it? Mr. Flavelle and
the Borden Government's forty-five
per cent tariff. Do the people realize
how much the Borden Government
and philanthropists like Mr. Flavelle
have done to keep the cost of living
On a high moral plane? Where would
I be now if it were not for the advice
and assistance of these Christian gentlemen? Would I, an eight cent egg,
he expecting to lie down presently in
the same pan with forty-cent bacon?
Not at all. They'd be shipping me to
China where they like their eggs
gamey. Instead of which I'm paid to
stay home and kill people here.'
There's nothing like protection for
the home market.
"I must say," said the Returned
Egg, "that I have no kick against
thc Borden Government. It is the
true friend of the cold storage egg.
It enables us to forget our past by
associating on equal terms wilh new
laid eggs and does not subject us lo
a cruel competition with innocent
eggs from other countries. I think
we cold storage eggs ought to bc very
thankful indeed to the Borden Government for keeping up the high cost
of living and thus preserving our
self respectc."

In several countries, dancing is a
national institution fostered by the
Government. In Spain it is even
more so. The inheritance is sought
wilh as much pride as a dukedom.
It is from Spain that F.duarilo Can-
sino and F,lsa Cansino inherited the
art. Their forbears were all dancers,
and almost at birth the tiny feet of
thc present generation of the Can-
sinos were taught to trip gracefully
to the tune of the castanets. Their
dancing is a poem and a symphony.
It is the very highest note of harmony
and creation.
The D
jfr'jHQSE who are inclined to be critical over holding a
War Dance should just pause to consider what dancing really is.
fl How is The Dance defintely described? Dancing is the
spontaneous activity of the muscles under the influence of
strong emotion. Surely there are strong emotions enough
just now to justify dancing. Dancing is also a series of
graceful movements performed partly for the pleasure of
the performers, partly for the pleasure of the spectators.
fl Surely this is a time when innocent pleasure can be indulged in: overwrought minds and bodies need it. Dancing is also a series of trained movements intended to express emotions���just as a song expresses emotion in vocal
speech. ~"""
fl Dancing sustains, it does not exhaust the flow of feeling
and if the feelings are gootl dancing accentuates them.
Florizcl says to Perdita "When you do dance, I wish you
a wave of the sea." Does not the mind feel the beauty,
die cadence of the fiance just as one feels the rythm of musical notes?
fl Dancing is a universal expresion of feeling. The flow
of the tides, the movements of the celestial bodies are all
govrned by rythmical movements: the poets made the celestial stars dance with joy.
fl They had sacred dances in the worship of antiquity.
There were dances of supplication, dances of thanksgiving.
\) 'J'he dance fell into disrepute but it was revived in the
15th century. Spain is the true home of the dance���and
the Spaniards are a sober people.
li Long ago John Locke, the great philosopher praised the
dance. "The dance gives not only grace, but manly confidence." Homer called the dance "The sweetest and
most perfect of human enjoyments" and old Homer and
John Locke knew, together almost as much as the sapient
critic of the Hamilton Spectator who wants to be another
Mr. Tureydmp and give Vancouver lesuns in "deportment."
