THE DAYLIGHT SAVER
The death of William Willett, the
foremost champion in Britain of the
daylight-saving  movement,     and   the
I father of the Daylight-saving Bill in
the British purliument, is a reminder
that some Canadian communities
have profited considerably by adopting the scheme. Mr. Wi'ilett was a
builder, and an untiring advocate of
construction that would admit nlen
ty ot sunlight to all buildings, par-
iieiilarly those where many people
congregated The bill which he had
brought before the House of Commons lor daylight saving proposed
to advance all Jlocks in the United
Kingdom 20 m'.nutes each on four suc-
CCBSive Sundays in April, and reverse
the process in the lour Sundays in
September, Between April and Sep-
i ember the time would he therefore
an hoar and a quarter ahead oi
standard. Though it was supported
by many public bodies throughout
lir.tain, tbe bill was referred to a
sprcinl committee, and did not reach
the third reading.
It is worth noting that one of tbe
reasons advanced iu support of the
bill, that it would lead to a saving
:n artificial light, bus heen demon
strate.I to be sound in a Canadian
city, Lnst summer Regina put on the
clock an hour in early summer, and
returned to st ndard in the autumn.
Not long ago thc c'.ty lighting authorities reported that a saving of $.0',-
000 in the cost of light had 1 een ef-
lerted hy the people. ThiB. is the only
j direct statement ol economic saving
from the scheme yet announced in
Canada. Other western cities followed Regina's example last year, ami
In Saskatchewan the movement went
far enough to lead to a proposal that
the Legislature should make tbe day
light saving sell, nie obligatory on all
COmmunitits.   That   Was   to.   drast r.
however, and the municipalities still
ii ive the matter at their own option.
in eastern Canada     spasmodic
tempts have been made to get th'
seht in ■ mt,. operation, Orlllla having
tried it  a  couple e.f   , with
poor results,  but   nowheri   has   tl, i
been s,, much success ft r it as in the
' viincs      with   tb   :
bright  days. Tee low  Canadiai
baps,  is the name ol Willett known,
but  his   leath ,, ten  days ago merits
•
opinion, east, west, north and south,
"What in your opinion, iB the outlook for American business in 1915?"
was recently asked by a New York
investment firm of a large number of
leaders of thought und action in the
affairs of industry in the United
States.
Four hundred and twenty answered
"Encouraging"; 12'1 answered "normal" and 160 answered "discouraging."

THE COST OF A  RAILWAY
Vancouver News Advertiser: The Ot-
; tawa "Citizen"  iB said to have made
In scold because     the     1'ucitic Great
Eastern     will eost $6S,0OU per mile,
j What  does    the  "Citizen"  think      it
'should eost'.' The  Grand Trunk  Pacific railway     mountain      section,    8ii0
miles,  bad cost  $77,3(12,  IDs,  down to
the end of last March, At that   time
grading  had      not      been  completed.
There were several  cuttings and much
embankment    to he     finished,  Eleven
Bteel  bridges were under construction,
and ten     had not     been commenced.
Many  buildings  were unfinished.    The
track  had  not all  heen  laid.  Part of
the road had  received a lift of   ballast and 200' miles had received none.
Scarcely any  work had heen done   at
the  l'rince  Rupert terminal?. Yet the
road  had  already    cost  $93,200     per
| mile. Hy this time the cost must    be
over  SIOO',000     per     mile with  much
work  yct to  be done.  If the     Pacilic
' Oreat Eustcrn can be constructed for
! *a,0C» per mils  people  mny want to
| know why the     Grand Trunk Pacific
cost so much.

COMMUNICATIONS
To thelKditor of the Mail Herald,
Sir,—Will ,\ou please allow space
for these notes and oblige the working men of this town generally.
In these times of depress.on it is
certainly a sipiare deal the citizens
j want,'from the city in regard to work
going on. When Mr. Wood applied at
the beginning of tbo year to thc city
council for a share of thc city's Insurance, he was told that a by-law
existed which stated a man had to
be in business for three years in our
city before he could share in the
city's insurance business, Now, hnve
you any law protecting the residents
of our town who sell their labor in
one way or another? Not that we.
heard of. Is it pratical then to allow
transient people to occupy dity work
and let permanent citizens walk
around idle? Why then do not the
city ollicinls look utter the permanent home builders tn the first place?
Now it is worth while to handle
this unotuployi d business In a business way. There is no need for any
childish prattle like this, "my name
was down before yours. I was one of
the first," No, "We ale here, because
wc nre here," and this town is not
bigger than the officials ought to
know every man here. We can tn'e a
tip from the unions though. When
they handle' any relief money or work
they make a distinction between a
sing'le and a married man when a'lot
t'ing it. They know it takes more for
a man and wife and a half a dozen
children totezlst than one who1 stands
alone. There is no use to hang back
with work that can be done now, because as summer approaches people
may find outlets elsewhere than in
town for employment.

Tuesday, Feb. 23.—We are ou the
move once more and as 1 wi.'te tbis

,nighty Atlantic. We were just fiuibj-
nig breaxfase at 8 o'cIock this morn-
'jig when 1 beard thc steam being
turned on the capstan and ancaor
engine just outside tho dining saloon.
Hushing out 1 was jimt in time ta see
tucm start to weigh the anchor a
process wb'ieh toot fully half an hour
to perform. As tbe hugh chain with
its links over a loot long and three
inches thics was slowly hoisted

forecastle below. Finally the anchor
a huge affair which must have weighed at least three tons appeared and

sounded and we commenced to move

millions of People Are Concerned In
an Issue Which May Alter the
Map of Em-ope — Fragments of
(■real Nation Are Divided Between Russia, Germany and Austria—Would  Strengthen  Slavs.
Not even tbe issue of that great
battle on tbe plains of Belgium,
where tbe artillery of five nations
ls awakening echoes as portentous
as those of Waterloo, should wholly
avail to distract the attention of the
world from the momentous rescript
of the Czar of Russia which promises to the Poles the realization of
most if not all of tbe dreams and
the aspirations which they have
treasured for nearly a century and a
half with a patriotism and a fidelity
surpassing even tbat which has animated the French as they looked
across an arbitrary frontier to the
mournful prospect of their lost provinces.
Alone of the races the Poles, divided between three great powers,
the subjects of Prussia, Russia and
Austria, have failed to .achieve even
a partial rlBorgimento, although of
all races ihey have niotst ardently
nnd loyally preserved the memory of
former solidarity and cherished Ibe
dream of tut ure reintegration. To
them now the Czar, with all the solemnity and publicity of an irrefrag-
Ible oath, lias promised'Ihe right to
speak tbeir language, pursue the natural evolution of their own race, if,
In tbis great European! crisis they
give to him and his nation the loyalty
which may assure him victory.
And Ibis sacred promise does not
apply merely to the 12,0(K),000 people who live in that restricted district, no larger than Lower Ontario
which bears the name of ftussian Poland and contains the ancient cnpilal
of Warsaw. Reading the rescript
there is no mistaking Ihe fact that It
Is equally instinct with hope for the
5,000,000 Poles now subjects of a
Hapsburg and the n.ono.ooo Toles
who owe reluctant submission to a
Ilobenzollern. In a word, the rescript -jf the Czar points inevitably
toward new and m imeatous changes
ln the map of Europe if victory shall
come to the cause be has championed
ln   this  great  conflict."
If Poland is to be re-established,
why not Bohemia with Its millions of
Slavs, not less than 8,000,000, including the Slovaks o ; the marches of
Hungary, west of the Carpathians?
Ever since the "Defenestration of
Prague," even since the battle of the
White Hill that sent, the Winter King
Into exile, Bohemia has been subject
to the Germans, and millions ot
Czechs have maintained a desperate
battle for racial independence. Today Enrole is fighting because the
C/.ar chose to extend to the little
Slav brother on th» Danube the protection of his great empire. To-day
the Serbs of Bosnia and Herzegovina,
the Croats of Dal.natia and Croatia,
the Slovene, of Carnlola, Carinthia
snd the Coast Lands, all the southern Slavs from thl Alps to the Tltil-
kans ar included in the great 1'an-
SlaTOh renaissanee which bas followed the victories of the Slavs of Bulgaria and Servia in the Balkans.
Not as an appeal to a fraction of
his own people, not as a pledge to
bind the halting loyalty of some millions of Mitijects on a threatened
frot:-:.-r la the C it's rescript to he
led It has a far wider meaning met mistaken either in Berlin or
Vienna, or indeed In London.
Poland restored, even with its
rs of language alone, would
give e .rope a State of nearly
• inhabitants. It would take
from Germany al least three pro-
•, inces and from Austria half Its
population,  if  to the  freeinc nf the

Pin Your Faith to Live Stock
The one outstanding feature of the world's farming is that there will soon be a
great shortage of meat supplies. Save your breeding stock. They are today Canada's
most valuable asset. If you sacrifice your breeding stock now, you will regret it in the near
future. Plan to increase your live stock. Europe and the United States, as well as Canada,
will pay higher prices for beef, mutton, and bacon, in the very near future. Remember
that live stock is the only true basis of economic and profitable farming. The more grain
you grow, the more stock you «an carry. The more stock you keep, the more fertilizer
for your fields.   Mixed farming is real farming, not speculating.
Study this table, which was prepared
before the war. Only one country
increased its cattle more
thaa its people in the past
ten years. And, in it
(Australia) in 1914 there
was a tremendous loss of
live stock through an unprecedented drought a fact
which the table does not
show. Do you need any
stronger argument than this
table that there is bound to
be an increasing demand
for beef?   Add to this con

has merely hastened tbe meat

butter from New Zealand?
The exports of Canadian
cheese hive been steadily declining for ten years. Look at
the market prices today. Do
they not luggeit tbe advantage
of increaied production?
Through cow-testing, selection   and  better  feeding,  tht
average annual production per
cow in Canada did increase from
2,860 lbs. per cow in 1901 to
3,806 lbs. In 1911, but this is only
a beginning. Last year one cow
In Canada produced 26,000 lbs.
The dairymen of Denmark
who supply Great Britain with
butter and bacon are not satisfied unless their herds average
10,000 lbs. per cow. Let Canadian dairymen work to increase
the productiveness of the milch
cow. Breed for milk. Test
your cows. Save your calves.

French Recruits Winners
of Volley Ball League
These two supposed crnc't 'teams
were badly trimmed     on   Wednesduy
■ evening, when the last leugue volleyball games of the season were played
ofl. The lirst game, Scotchmen vs.
Business Men was a complete     wulk
■over for the latter. Their fast combination and quick returns assured
them the victory from tbe commencement of tbe game. The Scotchmen
seemed to loose thut keen determination to win so characteristic of the
race and whether their loss waB due
to tbat or the fact of inferior play,
it remains for those who witnessed
the iiame, to decide. The scores were:
Scotch Reserves, -0 and 17; Business
Men,  21   and  21.
Th: second game of the evening,
French recruits vs. New. Comers, was
lust and inter, s lng at its early
■•stages, but gradually tbe New Com-
•ers wore out the r opponents and
won out by a wide margin. The
Frenchman's less was no doubt helped to be brought about by i.ot having Copeland and I'urvis on the Hoor
but even hud they teen present on
Wednesday evening it is questionable
tl thy would halve had a chance
aigainst  the New Conors stroll; team.
"The scores were French Recruits 21,

Thc Itague is over and all praise
is due to the French allies In topp'ing
the league. The Mash Enters take second place, wh le the Business Men
and New Comers tie for third. Ar-

New Tobacco Area.
The annexation of German New
'Guinea, by the Australians has made
•a notable addition to the tobacco-

Guinea, but lt has never been cultivated for export ln the British section of the island. The German colonists discovered, however, that New
3ulnea tobacco, properly treated,
finds a ready sale in the European
market, and they formed a syndicate
which exports the leaf In great quantities.
