A ll Hail Democracy
C.HIS great world war has 'wrought many changes
iu thc life of ei>cry civilized nation. Old established institutions, hoary with age, arc being throivn
into the discard, and feiv questions are being asked why
such things should take place. Thc otrward, and let
>; s hope upward, march of time demands that the way
be cleared of all obstructions. Democracy is coming to
its oven with rapid strides. Kings arc losing their jobs,
and imperial puppets who have lived in the lap of
luxury, at the expense of the common folks, are being
told, in terms which they cannot mistake, thut if they
wish to retain a place in thc 'world, they must make
such a contribution as shall merit a claim to recognition
Everybody must be a producer these days, and the
loafer, no matter what his or her rank or station may
have been, must either work or want.
Thc people of the British Empire, hail "with satisfaction the announcement Thc King has dropped all
German titles, and will assume thc name of "The House
of Windsor." They arc also pleased to learn that thc
long list of princes and princesses, etc., has to bc
definitely and drastically pruned, and only those in immediate relationship to thc Royal House will bc given
any real recognition.
Such a pronouncement has been eagerly expected,
and long delayed. Old Britain has for ages been the
asylum for all thc degenerates of Royal Europe and the
common folks had to "foot the bill." But the day of
plain "Mr." has arrived. This is the common man's
century. The aristocracy of brains and merit is the
Only one that true Britons will, in future recognize.
The man who makes the greatest sacrifice, for the1
greatest common good, is thc one upon whose brow a
grateful people will always place thc wreath of honor.
Thc ploughman and thc prince must start in the race
together.   This is thc basis of true democracy.

Almost every night the morality squad of the police

scooping in some "prominent citizen frequents"who

the degenerate denizens of the underworld. Hail is ar-

with their miserable playthings of the previous night.
An amendment that will allow no bail to frequenters of houses of prostitution, be they prince of pauper,
and that will compel the authorities to publish the
names, addresses and occupation of such scoundrels
will very materially assist the police in their efforts
to keep the city clean. Some of the biggest rascals
that we have in Vancouver are masquerading as business and professional men, and are received into our
society circles, and amongst our pure children, while,
were the true facts revealed, they would be segregated
in a cattle pen.
Again, under one of the bridges in the city of Vancouver there exists a nigger dive, that is frequented by
all the pimps and prostitutes of the Pacific coast. It.;
is run wide open, and is known to the police, win

enviable record. The West ha- done far better that!

No amount of numerical juggling can disprove this

A New Motor Journal
Latest Local Venture
"jft^ HE Auto Club is Vancouver's latest ventrue,
^^ ture, and judging by the appearance of
first issue, just to hand, it bid's fair to take a premier
place among the monthlies published on the Pacific
Coast. It is speclfi.C_a.lly devoted t<5 the Interests and
Advancement of 'Motoring in Hritish Columbia, and
contains some smartly written and exceedingly entertaining articles. "For the man behind the Steering
Wheel "Rover" contributes a useful talk that will he
eagerly read by all lovers of the auto. "A Monthly
c*i*rt with our readers of the Fair Sex," under the
department of "The Lady and the Car" will be
written by that charming writer. Laura Rees Thomas.
Mr. Harry Wm. White, president of the Vancouver
Automobile Association, is the subject of a snappy
little article, and the Automobile Association notes
are interestingly and entertainingly written. Altogether, this twenty-six page journal reflects creditibly
upon the enterprise of the Vancouver Automobile
Club and should prove a* great asset to the motoring
life of our Province. The Journal is published by the
Progress Publishers Co.
Casualty Insurance Plan for Soldiers
The United States government proposes to abolish
lhe system of pensions for wounded soldiers and for
the surviving kin o*f soldiers killed in battle and to sub
stitute therefore a casualty insurance plan, according
to dispatches from Washington. A committee of officers of some of the lafgest life insurance companies
in the country will begin a series of conferences with'CS( privilege
Secretary of the Treasury McAdoo this week on the
formulation of the proposed legislation. The tentative
proposals are: A minimum compensation of $1500
for the death of an enlisted man. A maximum compensation of $1500 for total disability. A maximum
compensation of $5000 for the death or total disability
of an officer. It is proposed to pay this compensation
not in a lump sum, but in a series of instalments extending over a period of years.
Two plans are under consideration. ()ue provides
that the government shall insure its soldiers against
death and injury with the insurance companies which
accept the business at the high rates which would be
charged for war risks. The other provides that the
government shall undertake the whole obligation, Congress appropriating sufficient funds to cover the death
^nd injury benefits. If the latter plan should be adopter it would be a system not of insurance but of limited
course, is out of the jurisdiction of the strong
the law. An amendment to the Criminal Code i- the
only cure for this evil. Xow, what do the citizens
think of all this? What i< the use of any body of men
trying to clean up any city whin the law is against
them? Why can it not be amended? Simply, my dear
reader, because you are nol taking enough interest in
the affairs of lhe city. True, we have Social Service'
Councils lo look after these thing-, lull, these institutions so far have not amounted to anything- The Social Service Council in Vancouver i.- a jok(

from au exaggerated idea of their own importance,
but-who have really done nothing to help clean up tlic

the Social Service of Vancouver amounts to. and her
herculean efforts for the uplift of fallen humanity in
this city will never be known.. To this lady Vancouver
owes a deep debt of gratitude, and the people could assist her materially in the good work she is attempting
lo do. by protesting against the indifference of the Social Service Council, and by demanding thai these men
vacate the places they hold on those important boards,
and make room for those who are bigger and better
men, and more willing to work in a good cause, and
for the common welfare. The Criminal Code can be
altered and the city cleaned, if the citizens are willing
to pay the price. The Standard advises every citizen
who has an interest in the city to visit the police court,
and see, and hear what goes on there. Show the officials that you are in sympathy with their work and
that you arc willing to make sacrifices that their hands
may be strengthened. Parents go ami see for yourselves to what depths of degradation the sons and
daughters of otlier"s fall, and then go home and thank
God for good homes and innocent children, and spend

close up tomorrow and the city
In the post office and govern-
mpioy generally, there are many loafers of a
workable age. who are doing practically nothing for
alse I their wages.   They could be relieved without inconveni-
soonjence t0 the general public, and. in any case substitutes
' could be found in the ranks of waiting women.   Scores
of bank clerks in this city would find work in a hay field
a much more strenuous, a more manly job. The
Labor Temple could supply a few farm hands from
amongst a multitude of secretaries and organizers who
neither toil nor spin. Preachers, teachers, editors and
everybody who can be -pared, should be conscripted at
once to gather in our harvest. While our parliamentary
men are amusing themselves, killing time in political
manoeuvering and manipulating, the yreat crop- of
Western Canada, upon which the salvation of the Empire, and the fortunes of our own soldiers depend, are
about to rot in the field- through lack of sufficient harvest int;- labor. Were this labor not available wc might
find some excuse fur ihe present pusillanimous position
of our Parliament, but the fact i- right here we have ail
manner of help, were it only organized and ordered
aright. Canada's first duty at the present hour is to
keep the men overseas fed and lit. and any man wlm in
any way hinders the carrying out ni thi- obligation is a
traitor to the cause for which we light. Upon the heads
of our politicians must rest the onus of our present domestic dilemma, but upon the people must rest tin*
guilt if it is allowed to continue. To War or to Work is
the slogan of evcrvone in this Dominion.

We cannot too frequently urge those
of our readers who have never indulged in a cycle tour to keep in the
front of tlieir minds the advisability
of sampling this���the happiest phase
of the pastime at the earliest possible
moment, lu this matter we can well
afford to ignore the vaporings of the
spoil sports and kill joys to whom
pleasure cycling appears to be a deadly sin, but we do not forget the importance of considering the project
from the financial point of view and
of bearing in mind the need for economy.
Is a cycle lour consistent with a desire to economize? Considering the
question broadly, we have no hesitation in replying to this question in the
affirmative. In the first place, the cost
of such a tour need not be excessive,
but thc rider is also bound to take into
account thc physical and mental benefits. As we have more than once insisted, this matter assumes a far
greater importance now than it has
ever before possessed, for, in view
of the peculiarly difficult conditions
under which most of us are working,
it is vital, in our own interests as we
as in those of the nation, that we keep
ourselves as fit as possible.

We do not know any better way-
any shorter cut���for restoring the
jaded worker to his normal health
both in mind and body, than i few
days of cycling. The delightful exer
cise, the unlimited fresh air, the constant change of scene, the romance
of travel, the surprises and mild adventures of the open road���rhese
things in combination will be found to
be a certain cure for overwork or mental  depression.
* * *
We therofore urge our readers���especially those who have no personal
acquaintance with the best "phase of
cycling���to make a point this year of
indulging in a cycle tour. Even a
week-end���even 36 hours away from
home���will  produce  excellent results.
Never mind about thc mileage; never
mind about a fixed programme. Just

It is stated that Clarence Cameron,

suffered from paralysis in both lejjs
when an infant, and took to cycling as
a remedy on the suggestion of a doctor.

There is a distinct tendency among
various authorities just now to recognize and proclaim the value of fresh
air for healing and recuperative purposes. Medical men are declaring
that nothing can be more beneficial
to our wounded warriors when in the
convalescent stages, while those whose
business is to study the welfare of the
workers are waxing no less enthusiastic over the effects of that treatment,

sort of fresh air rationing, and we
surely need all the strength there is in
these days. There is nothing which
leads to general debility, nervous
troubles and the like, so much as ti.e
neglect of one of the freest of t're
good things of the world. And we
doubt if there exists anywhere a pla e
where it may be obtained at the cost
of such very little trouble.
All outdoor folks will echo this
sound doctrine, and will doubtless
agree, too, tllat "town dwellers" are
apt to overlook the need for exercise,

What Shall We Do For Our Crippled Soldiers'
By J. S. DENNIS, of th* GP.R,
IT la Interesting and gratifying to
note the application of thought
and skill with which Canada Is
undertaking the great problem of
taring for those of our soldiers who
have received Injuries ln the battles

to build training schools and homes

years to come.
At the present time the United

which was ended more than 60 yeari
ago. In addition to these national
homes, practically each one of the
Northern    SUtee    maintain    state
homes for disabled soldiers, ln which
some 12,000 veterans are-cared for
annually. These homes are practically alms houses with Federal and
State Uovernments. providing the
maintenance. |
No attempt was made In establishing these homes to train the maimed
bo that they could overcome the
handicap of their injuries. The Iobb
ot an arm or limb, or an eye was con-:
Bidered of such a permanent nature
lhat the patient must bc cared for as
a public charge for lhe balance of hia
life. Perhaps this w_.s because of the
lack of knowledge ot the wonders of
vocational training; perhaps it was
but the shifting,oi governmental responsibility. 3 It must be said, of
course, that all disabled soldiers of
Ihe Union Army did not enter these
.���nines. There were many who fought

to fight life's battles successfully.
I_et us assume that Canada invests
one-half of the money in so-called

started out to make tbeae homes

How many lines of Industry could
eventually be supplied with trained
workers from sueh a source! Canada
needs skilled farmers to wrest th*
wealth that nature has so abundantly stowed away In our prairies, or
even In the farms of the older settlements of Quebec and Ontario. What
better way for the state to provide
these expert farmers tban to tdncat*

show a  leaning  toward  sericulture!

It Is easy to talk like that, in vaguel
generalities, but we have got to come .,
down to particulars and find ont to*'
detail what is best for the men���yes,
an. for each particular man, with;
his individual capacities and aptitudes.
Surely the soldier who bas risked
his life and lost his liml or has been
otherwise disabled, deserves the very
best that the state ponaibly can give
him. It is not charity���but justice..
The productive value of these re-i

to our assets rather than a charge
and a liability. " |
During the fifty yea*s since the'

with the assistance of his pension
and the special training in suitable;

This, like all other assistance, how-j

Milady's Gossip
During the trying period in which
<mr Empire has been immersed in war,
much   has   been   written   and   laid   I
mothera ol v.ns, urging them to give
their W.y. to thc cause of patriotism.
Surely, now. ihc time lias come when
something ihould be said to the mothers of daughters, for the women oi
the future must face condition, vastly different from those which were
the outlook of the generation before
her. The effect of the war has been
to utterly change economic conditions
the world over, particularly where women  |are   concerned.     Centuries
habits, customs and ideas are tumbl
topsy-turvy on one side, if not   to be
consigned forever to oblivion, at least
to be altered and widened until thej
will be past recognition.
In some cases, of course, this will
apply more forcibly to life in the
Mother Country, at thc same time
there are many views of life which
must of necessity be rcfocussed by
women of the colonics.
There is one particular outlook
which is more or less unconsciously,
but nevertheless deeply implanted as
a certainty in the heart of the average
mother of girls, and that is that marriage is the natural and unfailing destiny of their daughters.
A    couple    of    generations    ago    a
spinster was regarded as au object of
pity,  often  of  ridicule,  it  was  tacitly
understood   that   through  some   fault
of her own, some lack of charm
possession of such doubtful virtue
a   temper,  or  too  stinging  a  tongue
had prevented her attainment to the
blissful estate  of marriage,  that end
to which all girls were brought up to
look  forward as  the  summit of ambition.    But for many years this distorted idea has been steadily altering,
and thc  woman  wage-earner,  the being who could make provision for her.
own future independent of a husband
is no longer a rariety.
At the same time ihc averag parents in comfortable circumstances are
too content to rest secure iu tin.' very
natural hope that the future of their
girls will be taken-earc of by some
man of their acquaintance, or by ST.me
chance stranger that comes along. To
this visionary end they are educat
supported, amused and dressed, only
too often at a sacrifice from their
parents, and the best, the most productive and useful years of their lives a_re
frittered away in fictitious emotionalisms, and dreams, hopes and strivings for ti remote chance of settlement in life which may never occur.
That for some years lhe chance of
ultimate marriage for many girls has
"leen a remote one is true, but in the
future th.*. chances are apparently destined  to be  -till  more  slender.     I'.c-
l' 'I'    tit.- war there were far more women  in  Britain  than  there  were  men
to marry them; after the war if il lasts
any   appreciable   time   longer,   at   the
present rate of carnage statistics show
that there will be an average of something like ten or more women to ever)
one  man.    The  numbers  may  not  be
quite so appalling in the colonies, bm
the fact tliat there will not be anything
like  a   sufficient  number  of  husbands
for  the  marriageable  women  remains
a certainty.    There  is the possibility
or it might he called a probability to
be  faced  that  many of those  women
from   Britain   will   eventually   invade
our   shores,���the   younger   ones   will
never care to remain in such an Adam-
ess Eden���and it has always been the
accepted idea that women in the colonies have a far better chance of marrying than those of thc Mother Country,
so without doubt there is every likelihood   of   a   decided   increase   in   the
ranks  of  competitive  women  in  this
country after the war.
Surely then  it would he  good  for
mothers   with   daughters  drawing  towards  young womanhood,  to  put  on
one side those, firmly established and
natural hopes of marriage  for them,
and face bravely the truth as it shows
itself today, which means that while
a large percentage of the coming generation of women wil not marry until
late  in  life���un  the  thirties���a  much
s, larger percentage will not marry at all.
���  Therefore unless it is possible  for
parents to provide for the futures of
their girls in such a manner as lo ensure them against want, why not educate  and  prepare  them  for  a  future
which   will   be   self   supporting,   and
teach them to face squarely and sanely
the realities and possibilities of a life
apart  from  marriage.
the independence of women a- wage-
earners, lamenting iu fear that marriage will lose its charm for them,
they will no longer bc content to settle down to quiet home life and the
duties of motherhood; but we can safely venture to disregard those vice-.
for a- long as women are women they
will never lo-e their prediliction for
marriage a- iln- most complete and
satisfactory settlement in lite.
-��� Wc aii- just a- primitive at heart today as in those days when thc man
who wished to marry tapped hi- lad)
love on the head with bis stone club,
lucked her under his arm. and carried
her off. The war has irrefutably proved
that all the centuries of progressive
civilization have done nothing towards nullifying our primal instincts,
for when a vital dispute called for adjustment, what did we do but revert
back through all the ages and start to
kill one another,���that the killing is directed on more scientific, but no less
bloodthirsty lines is nothing to our
credit. So we may be equally sure
that the primitive instinct for mating
will never be lost nor even lessened
because present needs demand that
women shall for a time adapt themselves to new conditions.
It will be a very exceptional case
where love of a "job" will supersede
in the heart of a woman that natural
love for home and children, which is
planted in the very fibres of* her being.
Unless a girl is mentally deficient
she will always possess some sort of
ability, and the wise mother of today
will discover in- what direction that
ability tends, and act upon it as early
as possible, for so much more can be
done, habits and mental outlooks so
much more easily directed in the impressionable and formative years.

After all there is a great similarity
between a job and marriage. They
both provide "terra lirma" for the
building of dreams and schemes, both
must be directed with sharpened
wits and intelligence, and call for some
sacrifice and much adaptability, and
can only be handled successfully with
care and tact.
Tliere is no greater injustice in the
world than that done incpnsciously by
parents, when they carefully nurture
their girls, support, amuse and dress
them expensively and launch them
upon life unfitted and untrained to
fight its battles alone, with futures insecurely   provided   for.

THAT is a picture of the ideal
city from the hand of a prophet of God. The innocence
of childhood, the beauty of youth
and the wisdom of tine alike
find shelter within its walls, and share
ils joys. Its homes are abodes of all
happiness, it- streets an full of laughter of children, its very atmosphere
is peace and content.     11 slam's  midway   between   the   lirst   city   aud   the
last in this  Hook.    The tir^t city was
built   by     the   first     murderer   whose
name     vvas     Cain.     and     it      seems
as  if  vice  and  crime   had   festered   in
cities ever since.    Hut the last city is
built by thc hand of Cod. and its walls
of  jasper,   gates   of   pearl,   streets   of
gold,  and homes of light are a  type
of   the   perfect   civilization   to   which
God is leading the world of humanity.
The City of Destruction is to be supplanted by the Xew Jerusalem.    The
modern city is a great paradox. The
greatest   corruption,   the   great   vice,
and the worst crimes are found in the
great city.   The greatest philanthropy,
thc greatest courage and the greatest
purity   are   also   found   in   the   great
���city.    "Every city," says Lyman Abbott, "has been a  Babylon, and every
city has been a  New Jerusalem; and
it has always been a question whether
the Babylon would extirpate the New
Jerusalem    or    the    New    Jerusalem
extirpate    the    Babylon."     Montreal.
New York, Toronto, Chicago, Winnipeg and Vancouver ''are full of devils.
and also full of the glory of God."
Finest Product of Civilization
The latest product of civilization is
the modern city.    But the latest product  is  not  necessarily  the  finest  or
noblest. The finest product of civilization,   the  very   flower  of   the   human
race,   is   a   beautiful   girl   blossoming
out    into    radiant,    lovely    cultured
young womanhood.
"Standing-with  reluctant  feet,
Where  the  brook  and  river  meet,
Womanhood and  childhood fleet!
Sermon  by  the REV.  A.  E. COOKE,        ���     -       First Congregational  Church,  Vancouver, B. C.
''There shall yet old men and old women, dwell tn the streets of Jerusalem and the streets of the city shall be full of
boys and girls playing in the streets thereof."    Zech. 8:4.5.
"Gazing with a  timid glance,
On the brooklet's swift advance,
On the river's broad expanse!"
It was Emerson who said, "A sufficient measure of civilization is the
influence of good women," and the
moral life of any city can best bc
judged by the position its young womanhood occupies in the public
esteem, and the influence it exerts on
its social life. A young woman with
a pure heart, a cultured mind, and a
holy purpose is the mightiest influence
for good that is known to history.
There arc no limitations to her power
on the hearts of men. As Iphigenia
saved Greece by her sacrifice; as Joan
of Arc delivered France by her courage; as Beatrice inspired Dante by
her purity; as Highland Mary stirred
the soul of Burns to loftier things; as
F16rence Nightingale comforted the
dying, and as Elizabeth Fry won the
criminals of Newgate back to God, so
every young woman may become thc
good angel and inspiration of those
with whom she comes in contact in
her own sphere.
The Guiding Star of Manhood.
John Ruskin sets forth this power
of the maiden's influence when he
says, "You cannot think that the buckling ou of the knight's armour by his
lady's hand was a mere caprice of romantic fashion. It is the type of an
eternal truth���that the soul's armour
is never well set to the heart unless
a woman's hand has braced it; and it
is only when she braces it loosely that
the honor of manhood fails." Oh,
young woman! what a high privilege
and glorious destiny is yours! To bc
the inspiration and the guiding star of
the coming manhood of the race. To
deserve the high tribute of the chivalr
ous  Ellis  when  he  said,  "Woman  is
the young womanhood of our cily.
and in thc words of the Psalmist 1
say, "Hearken, O daughter and consider, and incline thine car."
I. I begin where much of the danger i
to the girl-life of our city begins, and,
I counsel every young woman to be,
exceedingly careful of the friendships |
she forms.
Your friends arc your good angels
or your bad angels. They arc either
lifting you up. guarding you from
harm and inspiring toward goodness;
or they are dragging you down, leading you to danger, and sullying your
sou! with the blight of evil. Friendship
is the greatest social force in the
world, and when a young girl makes a
new friend she has definitely turned
her face heavenward or hell-ward.
Gail Hamilton was right when she
said, "Twenty enemies cannot do you
as much harm as one friend."
Think of thc lurid disaster that came
lo Cleopatra the day she met Mark-
Antony. It meant fourteen years of
sin and shame, and final suicide with a
curse on his lips. "All is lost, tllis foul
Egyptian bath betrayed me." Contrast
that with the friendship of Nathaniel
Hawthorne with the young woman he
afterwards married. He found her
letters so pure and sweet that he never
opened them until be bad bathed his
hands. Blessed is the girl who has
such a friend, her honor and love are
safe in his keeping. But such reverence and respect arc exceedingly rare,
though, thank God, there are multitudes of loyal friends in our midst today.
Careless Friendships Disastrous
The girl who, in a city like this, is
careless in choice of companions and
friends is sailing close to the wind of
moral disaster. Careless friendships
often lead to a heart full of care. You
must be a very strong character hot
to be deeply influenced by your friendships. A pretty young girl of .seven
teen went down to the beach at Eiig
lish Bay and met one or two girls she
knew. Somehow they had some liquor
which they induced her to take. They
had evidently got it from some male
acquaintance, and this girl foolishly
shared it with them. In a short while
they were ail more or less incapable
and she came to herself in the police
station. Today she is a confirmed
dope fiend and married to one of the
worst of lhat type in this city.
Two or three days since 1 met a
girl of about sixteen years, in the police station. She had left her home
elsewhere in this province and come
into Vancouver looking for work. She
met a girl about the same age, struck
up acquaintance, and together they
went to a rooming house and hired a
room. They had only enough to pay
for the room for a week or so, and
to keep from starving they begged
their meals from such men as would
give them. They were on the high
road to ruin of body and soul when
they were discovered.
Country Girl in Dinger
The country girl is in greater
danger than thc city girl. She is more
trustful, more confiding, l.ifc is more
lonely. It is sometimes utterly lonely
and she hungers for friendship, longs
for companions. She must either sit
in her room from she quits work till
she goes to bed, or wander the streets,
or go to thc show. She is ready to
welcome anything that will banish
the   homesickness,   and   bring   some
Minister    of     First     Congregational   Church, Vancouver.   One of the foremost preachers in Canada and whose  recent powerful  messages  have
made a profound impression in this city and province.
..     , ...       , I pleasure into her life.   She does not
the beacon light of every man's am-j know the danger of the chance meet-
bition; his aspirations, energies and
courage, are all drawn forth by the
holy influence of her love"!
One wonders if ever there were days
more full of peril for the young women of our cities than these present
days. Old restraints have been largely
removed. The old home life is a thing
of the past. Modern industrial conditions have forced girls out from the
shelter of the old roof-tree and the
mother's care, to take their place beside men of all types in the business
world and the crowded factory. Business depression has cut down wages.
The war has upset and overturned
many ideas and methods of doing the
work of the world. The "conventions
of society have been largely shatter
ed. Even people classed as religious
are following the line of least
resistance. The wisdom of maturity
ami experience of age are often bewildered by the new problems and difficult situations they face, aqd it is
a time of danger to the young and inexperienced.   So T bring a message to)
ir.g and the chance acquaintance. She
does not realize that there are human
hyenas at every corner waiting a
chance to make her their prey.
Young woman! beware of how you
make new companions. Be careful
even of those who are introduced by
other acquaintances. Therc are hundreds of young men who seek to meet
young women with unworthy motives
and evil designs. They hunt for introductions to certain girls simply ti
flirt with them, to make them the toys
of their idle hours, and to boast of
their   conquests   to   their   boon   co
punction, minus conscience, and hold
honor as a joke. Woe betide thc trusting girl who believes in their friendship or submits for a moment to their
slimy touch! Her fate is sealed. The
outworks of her honor have been carried and the citadel of her character
will soon be stormed, f was astonished the other day when a police inspector said to mc, "Sixty-live per
cent, of the girls who strike up acquaintances with men on the street
wind up here in the station."
Paying the Price of the Joy-ride
Young woman! beware of the chance
meeting and the chance acquaintance.
Friendship is based upon mutual respect. But what respect can any man
have for the girl who "falls" for a
wink ou the sidewalk, or climbs into
an auto at the noil of a stranger's
A few Sundays ago two young w
men were walking along one of our
city pavements. An automobile slowed up alongside and the driver invited
them to jump in (<.r a ride. One was
quite willing, the other reluctant, but
he coaxed and. he' companion pleaded,
and byc-and-byc they both climbed in
and were whirled away, God knows
where. Tliey perhaps met the fate of
two others who did thc same thing
some time before. Two men were in
thc car and they persisted and coaxed
until the foolish girls got in. A mo-1
ment later their laughter floated back
down the street. But in the morning
as they stole from the garage
they didn't laugh. They had paid the
price of their joy-ride. In one morning alone nine girls from twelve to
eighteen years of age appeared before the Juvenile Court in one of our
cities to tell the tale of their moral
downfall and ruin on auto rides along
with strangers. Judge Choquet of
Montreal has denounced this practise
of girls riding with strangers in most
forcible terms from the bench. He asserts from his experience with many
such cases, "The moment they enter
the car they are doomed. I do not un
derstand it The influence is terrible,
it is the most potent that we have to
fight. Girls, even the most respectable,
the nicest, from homes where the
moral training is of the best, are
brought here because they have been
panions.    I have heard them brag of!seduced while out in automobiles." It
the clever methods by which they
overcome a girl's reserve and then describe her as an "easy mark" or "some
lovin' dame."
There' are others with still more
sinster designs, who hide under thc
cloak of false gentility, the heart of
the wolf and the passions of the tiger.
Every girl is fair game to them, and
they lay their plans with the subtlety
of serpents.    They are without corn-
is the deadly evil of the chance acquaintance. The girl who risks it is
putting her honor at thc mercy of
II. Again I counsel you to be exceedingly careful of your amusements.
I believe in amusement. I assert
the right of every soul to a proper
amount of healthy, inspiring recreation. I preach a gospel of radiant
cheerfulness,    f  believe  that laughter
is the music of the soul. 1 affirm that
the Gospel of Christ is the brightest,
gladdest, most sunshine thing in existence. Yes, 1 believe in amusement,
but it is amusement without the slime
of the serpent over it. Many girls
mistake mere excitement, frivolous
pleasure, extravagance or dissipation
for genuine amusement. The theatre,
the cafe, the dance-hall, even some
picture shows, are the hunting grounds
of   the  despoiler  of  girlhood.
The poet Kipling sat in a fashionable restaurant and watched two young
men as they entered, each leading a
bright young woman on his arm. They
entered the cafe sober; thc young women left it intoxicated. They thought
they were having a good time. They
drank to please their companions, not
because they were thirsty. They had
been deceived and demoralized. "From
that hour," said Kipling, "I became
the sworn enemy of thc liquor traffic." We have the same kind of thing
here in Vancouver. ��� It is only a short
time ago since thc police discovered
that young women were being debauched in a number of cafes by means
of liquor served in teapots and teacups.
How Two Girls Fell
It is but recently that a bright young
girl of eighteen was met in the street
by a youth she had known at school.
He invited her to thc Orpheum, then
took her down to sec the Chinese theatre and afterwards into a certain well-
known cafe. She trusted him fully,
she had never been there before, she
allowed him to order some "cherry
cordial." She drank it, and came out
with him and three days later waked
up in the police cell.
And here is another who was whirl
ed from the theatre* to a similar cafe
in a taxi cab. She was a clever young
clerk in one ol our hotels and her
mother allowed her to go out for the
evening with a smart young man who
had been a guest for some time at this
hotel���an apparent gentleman. Next
morning she vvas found by the police
in a room in Westminster still half
stupified from the drug he had used,
while he was urging her to go on to
Portland with him. She wouldn't dare
to go back to her mother now, he told
her. Do you doubt the truth of one of
our magistrate's statement that over
75 per cent, of the girls who are
brought before him are first started
downward in these places?
Beware of Unholy Amusement
Young woman! beware of unholy
amusement. As you value your soul,
choose that which is clean, healthy
and inspiring. Don't go for amuse
ment to any place where you would
blush to meet your mother.   Don't go
sweet, pure girls whirled around the
ball-room floor in Ihe arms of men
that were moral lepers, who would
have ruined them just as quickly as
they had ruined others as sweet and
pure. But the girls didn't know, and
if they had they couldn't always have
refused to dance with them. Don't
let your natural, innocent love of pleasure betray you into the terrible blunder of thinking you can escape paying
the price of harmful amusements,
Don't pay the price that you will have
to pay for joy-rides and theatre tickets and certain cardv parties and bubbling champagne. The greatest dethronement of modern womanhood begins with unsanctilied amusements.
Remember the splendid advice given
to her children hy Susannah Wesley.
"Whatever weakens your reason,
whatever impairs your tenderness of
conscience, whatever obscures your
sense of God, whatever increases the
strengtji and authority of your body
over your mind���that thing to you is
wrong, however innocent it may be in
itself." Follow the example of tlie brilliant and charming young woman wh
attended a party in high society. Dane
ing had begun and a Senator asked
her to dance with him, but she answered politely, "Senator, I cannot do it.
I am a Christian, and I wil! not do
anything that will lessen my influence
over My Sunday School class." The
Senator was a man of the world, but
he looked at ber with admiration and
said, "1 honor you, If there were
more Christians like you, more-men
like myself would be Christians."
III. Again I urge to beware of
lowering your dignity, even for a moment.
Again I urge to beware of lowering
your dignity, even for a moment.
If you cheapen yourself you need
not be surprised if others accept you
at your own valuation. Hundreds of
bright youngLgirlS wonder why when
one smart youth has been allowed to
be too familiar, or perhaps to kiss
them, a number of others attempt very
soon to do the same. I can tell them
why. The word has been passed that
they are "easy marks." One of the
finest young men I have known in this
city, was on the staff of a daily newspaper. He knew the life of this city
He was popular, brainy and decent
He is now at the war. He once said,
"It is an actual fact that over seventy-
five per cent, of the boys who seek introductions to girls do so on the
strength of the recommendation that
they are 'easy.'"
Putting  Herself on  the  Bargain
If only some O thc girls who sacrifice their dignity in this easy way
could hear the conversation that takes
place afterwards. "I met so and so
last night," says the youth, winking
knowingly to his chums, "Believe my,
she is sonic dame." "You did?" they
ask. "What's she like?" "Pretty
smooth alright. She came So easy it
took my breath away." He had probably dared to kiss her once, but his]
respect for her had vanished forever,
and to the rest of the crowd she was
henceforth an "easy mark." Woe unto
you, young woman, when your name
is flung from lip to lip t)i a certain
class of young men in Vancouver city!
Never place yourself on the bargain
counter of a low type of social intercourse. Better be lonely than low. If
you would be respected, respect your
self. There are, no doubt, other
young men with high principle and
clean thoughts and earnest purpose
who are worthy your company, your
confidence and love, but they will not
begin by making -you cheap. They
will respect you the more for a certain
dignity and maiden reserve.
A girl who is very popular with the
best young men visited a friend in another city. She was charming in man
ners and voice and her dress was neat
and becoming. She was bright, interesting, jolly, yet the young men who
met her felt while in her presence that
they were in the atmosphere of clean,
pure personality. One young man
said to her hostess, "Why can't more
girls have the womanly dignity that
Miss Brown has? I am sick of the
girls who expect marks of affection
from us. It is so easy for a girl to
go too far in allowing certain familiarities, that she may not realize how
deeply she has injured herself till the
damage is done. A young woman
coming home on a late train, said to

to any place where you cannot choose;	
your   company.     I   have   seen   clean, come home wdien I promised my moth

oncealcd sneer, replied, "It's too late

thought of that before." She had stayed later than she should, simply to
please him, and bad thereby lost his
respect and esteem.
Queen Elizabeth of Roumania was
right when she said to all womanhood, "The only way to gain the position we want is by such an elevated
standard of morality that we force
every  man  to  respect us."
IV. So too I counsel every young ���,,
woman, be exceedingly careful to preserve her modesty.
Modesty and purity are lhe twin
jewels uf a woman's soul, she who
loses one usually finds lhe thief will
carry off the other. True modesty is.
indefinable, yet everyone recognizes its
charm. It is a delicate, sensitive
plant that recoils at a rude touch or
the breath of approaching evil. It is
the guardian angel of woman's purity.
It gives winsomeiiess lo every grace
that adorns her character. It is the
atmosphere of beauty. 11 is the bloom
of the peach which once removed is
never restored. The girl who loses
her modesty turns respect into ridicule, and admiration into contempt.
"There is a modesty of demeanour,
the sign and symbol of queenly womanhood, which no true gentleman
will ever encroach on," and none but
a culprit rejoice to see fade.
Men Marry Those They Respect
The girl who lowers the shield of
her maiden modesty is set down for a
soft little fool by the very youth fbr
whom she does it. As one has said,
"A man may while away idle moments
with a flippant maiden. He may giggle
with lier, dance with her, drink with
her, and pet her, hut when it comes to
marrying he will seek one who. bas tin
pride of purity, that self-respect which
does not brook familiarity, and that
maidenly modesty and reserve which
to his heart is the seal of the true womanhood." The girl who cheapens
herself with young men will have to
sell out at a big discount in the marriage market *��� Young men, as a rule,
do not desire to marry girls who have
occupied the arms of half the fellows
they know. They want something less
indiscriminate when they choose a
wife. That a girl has made herself
more or less common property is np
attraction to a decent man. George
MacDonald has voiced the prayer of
the average man who seeks a companion to help him build the home of
his dreams:
"For G��d's sake be as beautiful
As the white form that dwcllcth in
my  heart!
Yea, better still as that ideal pure
That waketh   in    thee   when    thou
prayest God,
Or helpest thy poor neighbor. For
I  pray   .   .   .   Upon my knees
1   could   implore   thee���justify   my
In womanhood's white-handed nobleness,
And thee, its revelation unto me!"
Beauty Not in Vulgar Display
True beauty is a thing of the soul,
and its atmosphere is modesty. God.
help thc girl who imagines lhat beauty
consists in thc clothes she wears, or
outward display of her physical
charms. There arc many girls in Vancouver who should not be annoyed
when certain men accost them familiarly on the street. They have
dressed purposely to attract attention
and they have secured it. An enex-
perienced social worker who has
studied the underworld of many great
cities told me, here in Vancouver, that
it is getting more difficult day by day
to tell the difference between the lady'
of fashion and the public woman of
the street. The police inspectors assure me that a great incentive to social immorality is the present im��-
modesty in the dress of many young
women. I was surprised at the unanimity with which they said this. I
was still more surprised when some
of the brainest, cleverest women in
our city promptly agreed with them.
I am no prude. I admire beauty and
I hold it is every women's rightful
privilege to make herself as personally
attractive and charming in dress and
manner as she can. But I do not
think that a lady is known by the number of inches you can count berVcen
the top of her boot and the hem of
her skirt. A layer of white powder
on a woman's face used to be the sign
of easy virtue, it should have no place
on the fair cheek of an innocent girl
whose beauty is not for sale. Our
women should be "priestesses of
beauty," but they should not forget
that the most beautiful dress reveals
the lady and not the person. Young
women!  do not outrage the laws of

the people of the Northern Kingdom
found cause to regret their scorn and
scepticism. Samaria, tlieir capital city,
was besieged for three years by Assyria. It fell in 721 B_C, ami many
people were carried off into captivity,
Assyria turned next towards Judah,
whose freedom had already heen sold
to her by Ahaz, the faithless, but
whose present kins, Hezekiah was

to ally himself with Egypt! Assyria's
ri\al; although Isaiah, the prophet, as
a wise counsellor, had advised him I"
trust in none save God, the Great Deliverer. Hezekiah paid dearly fur his
folly. His walled cities were captured,
and a heavy tribute exacted of him by
Assyria. This humiliation, however.
brought Hezekiah to himself and hack
to God,���an experience characteristically human. So that, later on, when

which Milton described the perfect
beauty of  the  perfect woman:
"Grace was in all her steps; heaven
in her eye,
In every gesture dignity and love."
V. But above all things I urge every
young woman to preserve her purity
of body and purity of soul.
Purity is the crown jewel of a woman's soul. All else may go, but if
this remain she is rich still with a
queenly wealth, for "the pure in heart
shalt see God." Purity is natural to
woman. It is contact with man that
soils her. AH true men admire and
worship purity in woman. It is only
the scoundrel who disbelieves in it.

"Takes off the rose
From the fair forehead of tin innocent love
And sets a blister there."
Yet it is done���dune daily, month
hy month, year by year; done even in
the shadow of our churches and lhe
privacy of our homes. There are
men, young and old, in every city who
take a fiendish pleasure in degrading
innocences and trampling purity into
the mire. There are human hyenas
prowling our streets day and night in
search of their prey. Their ingratiating smile is seen at the theatre, in the
restaurant, at the dance, on the sidewalk. They frequent the parks and
hang around the beach. They infest
rOOtHing-hOUSei and invade the streetcars. They haunt the department
stores, and arc found in the business
blocks. They lay wait for foolish girls
in their automobiles and they watch
the schools. They have no conscience,
they mock at principle and deflower
me something that was great." Dante
declared that Beatrice "withdrew his
thoughts from all vile things." Tennyson thought so highly of womanly
purity that he said, "I would pluck my
hand from a man, even if he were my
greatest hero or dearest friend, if he
acter, steal her beauty, degrade her
body, crush her spirit, and damn her
soul, and then fling her into the street

\ grealer throne than the throne of
Victoria is near tu you. It is the

Friend, the Redeemer of womanhood,
To each of you He offers tonight the
gifts of Eternal Life and beauty and

says to you mothers, "Give me your

voice thrill with heaven's music, your
hands have the touch of angel hands
on your children's lives, and your days

midst of your family." To you maidens
He says, "Put your hands in these
pierced bauds of mine. Let me lead
and inspire and live with you dav by
day. I will give you beauty of soul,
loveliness of mind and purity of heart.
I will flood your path through life
with the light that never was on sea

world wiser, happier, fairer and bring

answer and take Him as Lord? Will
you. like Mary of Bethany, sit down
at His feet to learn, and have Him
make for you as for her,
"Life, death and the grcat forever-
One grand sweet song"?
But il is this very high and holy
purity, this innocence of wrong that
forms the occasion for the downfall
of many a girl. She is clean of mind,
Titre of heart, and she thinks that
everyone else is the same. She trusts,
she loves, she gives. As Frederick-
Robertson said, "The great danger of
woman is that of perverted self-sacrifice." What histories of foul and
shameful wrong inflicted on women
spring from this beautiful  impulse  in
their purity. As many more are still
in the cells sobering up or getting out
of their stupor of drugs.
"Once they were pure as the snow
but they fell,
Fell like the snowflake from heaven
to hell."

Third Crop Report for 1917
The third crop report issued l>y the Manitoba Free
Press is. taken as a wflible, fairly optimistic. 'Condition's an1 not mi bad hut what they might be worse.
A summary of tin* report follows:
Speaking broadly, tin* entire west lias had rain.
Manitoba has had the least and reports the need of
more, in many cases "badly." The whole west, bow-
ever, is badly in need of warm, moist weather to force
growth. Straw is generally short. Comparatively a
very small proportion of the crop has reached the shot
blade, and indeed nearly tbe entire crop is admitted to
be from 10 days to two weeks later than last year. The
frost damage, on the whole, since last report, has been
light. Coarse grains are much more backward than
usual, and are generally in an unsatisfactory condition,
with a few honorable exceptions; bay crop light and
short and generally considered to be past tbe stage of
any substantial improvement.
During June, 1916, conditions on the whole were
good, and on the 26th the Free Press report stated that
there was abundance of moisture; no damage from
frost, cutworms, gophers or weeds and that all that
was needed was hot, dry weather with occasional showers and light winds. Everyone knows what happened.
We got the heat but not the winds.
In June, 1915, on the contrary, the Free Press diary
shows that there were frosts on the 5th, 6th, 7th. 9th,
10th, 11th and 12th of June. Then on the 15th came
a frost running to 12 to 14 degrees at some points.
That was the June which ushered in the finest, crop
tbe west has ever seen.

Our Coming Problems
The Railway Problem
Complete nationalization of railways as proposed
by the Drayton-Acworth report may be impossible
owing to the financial stringency created by the war.
There are now only two sources of money open to
Canada���the United States and domestic loans. L'nited
States loans can only be placed under the guarantee
that the money will be%sed for war purposes. Even
in that case only a smal amount will be obtained. Canada's war expenditure is now nearly four hundred million dollars. Seventy-five per cent, of this must be
raised at home in domestic loans. If the money is to
be raised, it will require the co-operation of men and
women all over the Dominion. Individual investment
is necessary if the financial burden of tbe war is to be
carried. It is such investment that the National Service Board is seeking in its "serve by giving'' campaign. The nation must practice economy. The money
saved by the exercise of thrift must be invested in War
Savings Certificates if the countrv is to prosecute the
war succssfully and be worthy of the men at the front.
Vale! New York Horse Cars
Of the 94 points queried in  Manitoba,
heard from, with the following results:
Seventeen points report no wheat as yet in shot
blade;' five report from 50 to 70 per cent., and the remainder report "a little"; "5 per cent." and so on. 36
points report no damage from frost since June 5, date
of last report; the remainder report frost damage from
slight to serious.
All points but one report some rain; 14 points only
light rains ; 23 points report rain still "very badly needed"; 2') points want more rain and 26 points declare
they have sufficient, i Only 8 points report crop as
far advanced as at the same date las.t year; the remainder report crop from 5 to 21 days late, witli an
average of 14 to 15 days. A few points report serious damage from drifting of light land, but on the
whole, loss from tliis evil will lie comparatively light,
though a serious matter to individual farmers. Loss
from cutworms is also light.
Conditions of coarse grains is far from satisfactory.
The replies run about as follows: "late." "uneven,"
"only fair." "backward." "very poor," "only 50 per
cent, germinated," while only 1 report conditions good,
and only two report excellent.
Many reports indicate hay crop as very light.,
In Alberta 28 points were queried and 21 heard
from. Here conditions are better. Little.has advanced
to thc stage of the shot blade, but on the other baud
tliere bas been practically no frost damage. Every
point has had sufficient rain; crop is quite as late as
in Manitoba, but therc has been no damage from wind
drifting the soil, only very slight damage from cutworms, while, with the exception of two points condition of coarse grains is "gootl" to "excellent."
In tbis province 105 points were queried and 90
replies received. These showed that 45 points have
no wheat in shot blade and only very small areas advanced to that stage in the other 45 points. Fourteen
points reported severe frost damage since last report
and in a few cases the llax totally destroyed. The
damaging frost was on the nights of tlie 21st and 22nd
of June. I'.very point heard from had had rain, many
reporting "plenty." While a good many points said
tliey still wanted more, 67 points stated that no more
rain was needed for the present.
The Saskatchewan crop on the whole is slightly*.
later than the other provinces. Fewer points reported
it as advanced as last year, while quite a number reported it 21 days late. The loss from soil drifting on
the whole bas been light, and except as to gardens, cutworms have not wrought serious havoc. Reports on
coarse grains are very mixed, but on the whole indicate a rather backward crop with hope of recovery
now that rains have come. General condition of crop
rather below average.
Altogether 202 points have been heard from, spread
well over the three provinces and the indications are,
that while the crop is late and short, it looks quite as
well as it did at the same period in 1915, when so
much needles apprehension was felt for the ultimate
outcome. The present crop has a good root, it has
now got a fair supply of moisture and even in the
two or three days since rain came the improvement
has been marked and the history of 1915 may be repeated. The one great diffrence between the two
years is. that 1915 crop went in mainly on summer-
fallow, while 1917 crop may", almost be said to have
gone in mainly on stubble.
Prices, Profiteering, Production
One of the most difficult question that a government can have to deal wtih is the regulation'of prices.
' Xow that Canada has a Fuel Controller and a Food
Controller this difficulty is likely to soon present itself.
I Where prices have ascended to wdiat in ordinary con-
! ditions would be regarded as extortionate, there is
I naturally a desire for sonic regulation. That prices in
some lines have advanced to figures which have yielded manufacturers much more than ordinary profit is
well known. An effort to exercise some control in
such cases will have public sympathy. But if prices
are to be fixed the duty of fi.ting them at fair figures
becomes a very delicate and difficult one. The con
sinners will, of course, desire to see sharp reductions
on tbe present prices of necessaries, and public officials
will be disposed to meet that desire. But there is an
important element in the case which cannot be overlooked. Thc need for increased production is everywhere impressed on the peo< * High prices are the
greatest incentive to increasec' ... xluction. One is tempt
ed to produce for his own use so that he may not have to
pay the high prices asked on the market. The producer who produces for selling in the market will put
forth all his energies if he knows that the fruits of
his labors will command high prices. If prices are too
severely cut, he will have no incentive to produce. He
may feel that at the increased cost of production thei
new price offered ceases to be profitable, and he may
be tempted or even feel obliged to suspend or materially reduce operations. An official regulation may
govern the price which he may ask for his goods, but,
short of the taking over of the establishment by tbe
government, it does not appear that the production of
the goods can be controlled. While drastic regulations may be desired by the consumer, whose burden
is heavy, if they are made so drastic as to check production they will defeat their own purpose. If tbe
producer is to be encouraged to give \)ia best efforts to
increase his output he must have before him the prospect of a price which will yield him a profit. And a
price that in normal times would leave him little or
none now, "for he in his turn has to pay -high prices for
most of the things which enter into his cost of production. Patriotism may, of course, be counted on to
play some part in the campaign for increased production, but the prospect of profit or loss is not likely
to be ignored in tbe making of plans by any class of
producers.���The Journal of Commerce.
Ten Million Dollar Paper Company-
Speaking before the Victoria antl Vancouver Canadian Clubs, Mr. James White, assistant chairman pf
the Canadian Commission of Conservation, spoke of
the relation of the pulp woods of llritish Cloumbia to
the future of the pulp and paper industry^ He referred
to the exhaustion of the eastern forests and how tllis
province ultimately would have to furnish the bulk of
the pulp supply. He placed the available supply at
250,000,000 cords, stating if proper regulations were
enforced, this province could easily supply six million
i cords anntialy for an indefinite period.
I "An important incorporation," said Mr. White, '"is
I the Whalcn Pulp and Paper Mills, Limited, with a
capital of $10,000,000 to take over and centralize established interests. These include the British Columbia
Sulphite Fibre Company, which has been successfully
operating a large chemical pulp mill at Mill Bay, head
of Howe Sound, about 25 miles from Vancouver, the
Empire Pulp and Paper Mills, Limited, which recently
took over the pulp plant at Swanson Bay and tbe
Coloniol Lumber and Paper Mills, which is establishing
a pulp and paper plant at Quatsino, west coast of
Vancouver Island.
"The big pulp and paper plant at Ocean Falls," he
concluded, "has started its firsl unit, with an output
of 75 tons of newsprint per day. It is expected that
otber units will be completed this year which will
bring tbe output to about 200 tons per day."
The duty of the government of Canada clearly is to
take the initiative to call to their counsel represent'! ���
tives of the interests involved and to plan now with
definiteness and in detail for the period of readjustment and reconstruction of industries, which inevitably
must come soon. This is maile clear in an exceptional
ly thoughtful and logical statement regarding national
ideals in industry, by Mr. Ci. Frank Beer, in his contribution to the recently published volume, "The New
Era in Canada." lie points out that preparedness im
such a time is not the work of days or weeks but will
be the arduous antl concentrated task of many months
if it is to prove* in any degree adequate. That we have
trusted to haphazard solutions for problems of such
importance and have pleaded the pressure of other
problems as an excuse for inaction, is unfortunate;'1
true. Tllis, says Mr. Beer, is not the part of wise
statesmanship nor yet of shrewd business foresight.
He adds: "As in time of war, tbe respor-'bility foi
success lies chiefly with those in the higher commands,
so in the coming time of peace tliat responsibility must
be borne by those who occupy positions of industrial
and national leadership. Failure to meet the coming
problems of employment will be paid for iu disappearing profits and in social if not in national disintegration. What has been done generously and effectively by the few in time of war must be done by
many, assisted, and if necessary led, by the government if we are measurably to solve the problems of
J peace. For lack of preparedness where so much is involved public authorities and industrial leaders should
in future be held to strict accountability."
The ..spreading movement toward state control of
industrial and other services is one to wliich our industrial and financial leaders have given comparatively
little thought. They have treated it like the persistent
mosquito���"swatted" it without thought and with the
nearest available weapon. This movement towards
state control, however, is one which our industrial and
financial men should consider seriously. The war has
given to it a fillip which the period after the war is not
likely to overcome. Mr. Beer, who writes with* the
experience of a captain of industry, says that the
strength of the movement lies in the conviction of
many that the present industrial system recognizes
only the law of the jungle���power. "It it be true," he
says, "that Canadian prices are fixed at 'all the traffic
will bear,' which being interpreted means the maximum
made possible by monopoly or a protective tariff: if tile
possession of power justifies, in the opinion of tho-.:
who control industry, its exercise lo secure labor at tt
price measured only by the necessity of workmen and
workwomen: if profits have no moral measurement,
then tlie present industrial system should and niit-t
be replaced by another which recognizes social and national responsibility. The dangers of industrial in
tioiializatipn are great, indeed obvious, but the future
well-being of 'J0 per cent, 'of llie people justifies- tU ���
adoption of measures necessary to secure ultimately a
new and better standard of human relationship. Pro
pliecv is always dangerous, but it requires little Vision
to become convinced that if other industrial standards
are not accepted the movement toward state control
during the ten years following the war will exceed
that of all preceding years."    This discussion of na
British Output of Munitions
Some amazing figures arc given by Dr. Addison.
British minister of munitions, in regard to Britain's
output for war in shells, in steel, in airplanes. In
everything essential to carrying on the war fast strides
have been made. Tbe supplies of new design tanks
are cqining forward excellently, and this would indicate
that the British have greatly improved on the original
tanks, and intend to use them in very large numbers.
Tbe output of steel is now 10,000,000 tons instead of a
little over 7,000,000 tons yearly before tbe war, and bv
the end of next year will be 12,000,000 tons. The
government is obtaining steel plates in Britain at less
than half their cost in the United States.

The High Cost of Locomotives
Prices for locomotives have risen in the last few
months to unheard-of figures. From 1914 the price
trend has risen with increased costs of production and
extraordinary demand to a- point very gratifying to
the manufacturer. With enormous foreign orders added to the domestic demand, delivery can only be run
into the thousands, and Russia is still in tbe market for
thousands of additional locomotives.
Railroads are pushing their own shops to tbe limit.
Despatches from Altoona say the capacity of the
Pennsylvania shops has been increased in the last few
months by 33 per cent., and that 18 of the largest type
locomotives are being turned out monthly. Of a recent
order for 275 locomotives for the Pennsylvania, 245
were allotted to the Altoona shops.
U. S. Government to Control Exports
Government control or American exports, authorized in the provision of the Espionage Act, was directed to be put into operation July 15, by the issuance
on July 8, at Washington of a proclamation by President Wilson, requiring the licensing of shipments to
all countries of the most important export commodities.
Tbe commodities named in the list put under Control are coal, coke, fuel oils, kerosine and gasoline including bunkers; food grains, floflur and meal, fodder
and feeds, meats and fats; pig iron, steel billets, ship
plates, and scrap steel; ferromanganese; fertilizers:
arms, ammunition and explosives.

John, X. B., engaged in the construction of a Meet of
wooden steamers to relieve tbe necessities of the Motherland. Grant & Home have contracted with the Imperial Munitions Board to build two steamers of a ca-y
go carrying capactiy of 3000 tons. These will be constructed in a shipyard that was famous in the day-
of wooden ships for the magnificent vessels it turned
out, but which has been silent like all the otber shipyards in this locality for thirty years or more. Two
other firms are -arranging to build wooden ships immediately with-the expectation of later on becoming
steel ship plants. These are the St. John Ship-Building Co., and D. A. Saker, an English builder. The
latter has bought the Warner Mill property ."fronting
on the main harbor for that purpose. He will put
down three ships at once. St. John was the home of
wooden ships from 1770 to 1884. In 1876, the year
preceding the great fire, this port stooil fourth in the
list of great* shipping ports of the world, haying 805
ships in tbe register, aggregating 280.073 tons. The
revival of wooden shipbuilding;, after all tbe ohl builders had passed away and all the old ship-yards had
been dismantled, marks an epoch of great importance
in the history of the city.

Small  Equipments Save  Much Labor
on the Farm and in the
Farm Home.
One of the recognized necessities
in connection with our increased agricultural production is better and
more attractive conditions on the
farm, and among tbe many suggestions the use of electricity should be
considered. Electric power is a great
convenience in the farm home, and
saves much time to the farm help.
The farm or country home situated
within the area of an electric system
of transmission or distribution is fortunate, but the vast majority must
look  to the sniall isolated plant.
This alternative, however, is now
touch more promising than a tew
years ago. Many factories manufacture this type of equipment, the ope*
ation of the plants has been simplified and cost has been much reduced.
These small plants may be advantageously used for many domestic purposes in addition to lighting, such as
ironing, washing, toasting, pumping
water, etc.; and also for the very important use of charging storage batteries.
There are a number of these sniall
plants  now  un  the  Canadian market.

War   has   deepened   public  interest  ume
ill  the affairs uf Canada.    A  1,limber
.if illuminating books  have  been  issued since tbe beginning of the war
relating  to various  phases  and  problems   of   Canadian   life.     There   is   a
more serious note in the literature of
the times, and this is reflected in the
writings of Canadian authors.    In giving his lirst volume to the public, the
author of "Confederation and Its Lead
ers" has selected a subject of peculiar
and  timely  interest.    It  is  meet and
right  that  those  who  today are perplexed  by  the  grave   problems   that
confront the nation should seek counsel of those who, half a century ago,
in a great crisis in Canada's history,
laid the foundations of national unity
and  progress.    To  those   who  desire
to  get  close  to  the  spirit  of  those
spacious times and to know tbe master craftsmen who were the architects
and  builders of Canadian nationhood,
this   bulky   book  by   Mr.   Hammond
provides   all   the   material   required.
Written in biographical form and fully
illustrated, the volume is one that can
bc taken up at leisure moments with
out fear of losing interest in the central  figures  that    moved  across    the
stage in the great drama of Confederation.    Tlie   book   is  enlivened   by
numerous incidents tllat recall  names
of men familiar to the Canadians today.    One such incidental allusion recalls a night at George Brown's house,
news  of  assassination  of  Lincoln,  in
1865,   bad   reached   Tlic   Globe   office.
Tbe   despatch   was   brought   tt)   Mr.
Brown by J. Ross Robertson, now proprietor of The Toronto Telegram. Mr.
Robertson   was   then   on   Tlie   Globe
staff, a*ul waited until George  Brown
wrote an editorial on the tragic happening,  "though  it  was  then   late  at
night."    Many stories are told to this
day of the erratic methods by which
George Brown tried to edit The Globe.
He    was    invariably   late   with    his
"copy," and on one occasion was still

author lays bare the secret of success
at Confederation, It is writ large on
every page. It is no longer a secret
to those who read and study well the
history of that epochal period.
Looking over the brief cycle of the
Dominion's history, courage seems to
have been its watchword. It returned
courage to unite provinces distant and
dissimilar and to face the many differences which beset them. The same
courage bridged the waste places with
railways, carried canals over the resisting hills and opened new frontiers
with a fresh summons to the- world's
Loosed from the irritating colonial
bondage of Downing Street, the confederated provinces of Canada set out
on the path of responsible government, fortified by the support and
goodwill of French Quebec and guided
by prudent and wise statesmen of
vision and high courage. The author
traces in orderly sequence the evolution of Canada toward Confederation
and familiarizes the reader with the
progressive stages in the growth of
national consciousness that made
French and English speaking Canadians one in loyal sentiment toward
the Empire and in devotion to a common  country.
A Book to Be Read.
The book is written in an easy conversational style and reveals laborious
research and careful collation of many
interesting facts not hitherto found in
works on thc period reviewed. Mr.
Hammond is well known to readers of
The Globe as a former editor of the
illustrated and literary supplement,
which ceased publication at the beginning of the war. As city editor he
has found time to devote his literary
taste in the story of Confederation
as set out in the lives of the great
men who stood by the cradle of the
Canadian nation. He has carried out
his task with commendable skill and
success,   and  has   given   in   this   very

and solidified was adopted in the face |
of much opposition, and without directly consulting the people except in
New Brunswick." The chief ingredient in the quality of the statesmanship
of that period, the author emphasizes,
was courage. It is the only gateway
to progress. The men who see visions
and dream dreams require resolute
will and courage to enable them to
realize their aims. Experimental legislation calls for indomitable faith in
the leadership of those who seek to
ford the uncharted rivers and to fortify against the stress and strain of the
unknown dangers that lie ahead. But,
as Mr. Hammond, with cheery
optimism, proclaims in the opening
words of his book, "the Dominion of
Canada is no longer an experiment."

Dairy Farmers Will Profit by Keeping Systematic Milk Production
The dairy branch of the Dominion
Depatrment of Agriculture is directing attention to the need of farmers
keeping systematic milk records in
order that only the best cows may
be kept on the farm. It is pointed
out that by retaining only good milkers time, labor and feed are saved.
As an instance of the need -of records, it is stated that two five-year-
old cows gave widely divergent records in 1916. One jjave -6,616 pounds
of milk and 204 pounds of fat;    the
unity, not party strife, is interred with
their bones. It remains to be seen to
what extent the fathers of Canada today share with the Fathers of Confederation the qualities of leadership
that brought Canada through a veritable sea of difficulties and out of the
discordant elements of the times forged a constitution that enabled diverse
races to live in the lands of national
unity. How this was achieved Mr.
Hammond reveals in the lives of the
Fathers of Confederation.
Among the many unusual methods
employed to mine buildings, few
have been so novel as that used at
South Bend, Ind., to transport an old
church to a new site where it was to
be remodelled into a theatre.
The structure, after being propped
and blocked up, was moved over , a
railway track and coupled to a freight
engine. Then the locomotive slowly
drew the bulky load a distance of two
blocks to a point not far from    the
