Canada has the largest lor-
est area of any country in the
world, and has also a far greater aggregate of water power
than any other country. Considering the relation of forests
to water power to electrical
energy in a country largely de
ficient in coal -at least in its
central provinces���and consid
ering further the relation to
those industrial arts in which
Canada excels, the conserva
tion ol those forests becomes
the gravest problem in the
whole range ol our material
life.
The government of Hriiish
Columbia, through the provin

has written the. provini ial secretary of Manitoba that it is
the intention of the govern

the national Hag in the public
schools. If Ontario and Man

British Columbia would like to
do the same, and would prefer,
according to the communication, that the Union Jack be
used, as the Canadian ensign
