The Old-Time   Doctrine.
In  Canada no attention   has   been
paid until lately to the public interest
in waterpowers; or rather it has been
taken for granted that the public bad
no interest in such things, which were
evidently  created  by  nature   for   Uie
benefit  of  mill   and   factory   owners.
This free-and-easy do trine had its advantages when the co :ntry was young;
when   manufacturing   industries   were
hard set  to procure labor, and when
,the possibility of  transmitting power
over wires and  lighting a street  or a
or operating a distant plant was
not  thought  of;   but   today   i very .:.i-
acrees that it is the right and duty of
the state to control such sources   of
energy, which are natural monopolies
in a literal sense, in order that tbey
. may be turned to the hest possible account.    Formerly   the   power  diii    no
more than move a wheel or two at thr;
falls which generated if.    Xow a -1"*-

para   or    the    Chaudiere    at    Ottawn.

marketing of the power to any number'
of factories and  municipalities      OU-
I viously it  is essential that a force   of
this vast economic importance sliouf.J
be handed by the government in   behalf of the people at large instead of
being left, as before, to private owner-
' ship, or, at best,  to   a   limited   and'
therefore inefficient government   control.
Waterpowers   in   the West.
The department of the interior tinder Hon. Mr. Oliver's management ft.i��i
| established a policy for the utilization
of the waterpowers in the west, and of
'those  In  the  railway  belt of  Britlslr

in  the  federal   government,  that   ;ip-
pears to be more enlightened than any
other yet  devised  in Canada   or   tiie
Vnited  States.    There are not many
waterpowers in the prairie provinces,
and for this reason it Is all the more
necessary  that  thev  shoull  he made
the most of.    Mr. Oliver had to solve-

The letter points out that with the

they can not begin to supply all the

Canada and Canadian affairs continue to occupy increasing attention
in Great Britain, and"British Columbia
in particular is exciting unite a wide
measure of notice just now. This is
certainly satisfactory, for this kind of
thing must serve to stimulate immigration during the coming year. Mr.
Justice Grantham, who spent some
time last fall In New Westminster and
Vancouver, has been speaking of Canada as "the great phot upon which the
future of the empire depends.'' He
points out lo his fellow countrymen
that the duty devolves upon them Of
showing tlieir appreciation of this fact
and of justifying the loyalty of Canadians.
I'pon tbis point every true Canadian
wiU agree. To strengthen and make
permanent tiie tie between Great Britain ar.d Canada, it is necessary that
the latter should have some real voice
in the administration of imperial affairs. For this many prominent public mon in Great Britain are pleading,
and various methods of forming a
kind of imperial council have beo.i
put forward. It la io he hoped that
more attention will he devoted to this
very  important   question   by   British
statistics directly they begin to argue
in favor of vaccination, surely laymen
are as qualified as medical mon,   and
oflen more so, to deal with statistics.
Vaccination  has  been  practiced  for
over 100  years;   il   lias been   compul
sory  In   England siuce 1853, and
Scotland since 1864.   Large masses of

vestlgation of such statistics, and he
has  proved  thai   when    England   was'.
more vaccinated she had more small- -
pox.    There is no getting away from '
the fact  that  after seventy years   of
vaccination,   anl   with   a   population
which could not have been better vac-
cinated, the most terrible epidemic of j
smallpox of the whole century   struck |
this country.   That broad fact remains |
as does also this other, viz.:    That in j
the years from 1889-98 vaccination de-1

vet  no   never  previously known.    After   ISPS j
vaccination Increased in England, and '
in 1901-2-3 we had more smallpox than I
for years past.
Why does not the Edinburgh Public.1
Health Committee obtain the Regis-!
trar General's reports for Scotland
form 1900 onwards? From these thev
would see that in proportion to her :
population, though tory much better
vaccinated, Scotland suffered as much
as England from smallpox during
these years. The Scotch race have;
heen famous for their general intelli-
gence, and surely in such an import-
ant matter as vaccination they will
not he content to take the word of
medical men who know very little
more about the matter than they do
themselves. On the contrary, of far
mere value is the opinion of medical
men who disbelieve in vaccination, for
these have good solid grounds for
their disbelief, whereas the bulk of
those who believe in the practice accept it as a tradition and have little
.personal knowledge on the subject.
May we antl-vacclnists, therefore,
'suggest that tho editors of Scotcn
newspapers should admit our arguments as freely as they do those of
pro-vaccinists, and give both sides
fair play. By unfair treatment they
will not stop the progress of the anti-
vacclnist movement; they will only
embitter those who are fighting for
that cause, and make them flght all
the harder for the freedom which is
; tbeir goal.

Sir���During the last few days the

Scotch newspapers, but I notice that
only the case in favor of vaccination
is allowed by many editors to appear
in their columns. It appears that the
bulk of the editors in Scotland attach
great weight to the opinion of medical
men on the (|uestlon of vaccination,
and are com out to accept without
question anything they may say on
the subject, if the vaccination question rested entirely on medical knowledge this attitude would ae comprehensible, but as medical men themselves are o! lb ed to have recourse to

Both Countries Gain.
The Bpiril thai oppi ses reciprocity
because there is In it some advantage
for Canada would destroy all com-
mei t e. Trade is buill upon the principle  lliat   both  parlies profit  by  a tail-
Interchange of products. Reciprocity
is the recognition and prai tlcal embodiment of the fundamental commercial axiom.    Both countries gam. But
as theie are about 93,000,000 inhabitants in the l'nited States, our measure of gain is much greater
our trade with Canada is now
iu-.ul> J350.000.000 a year, iind growing rapidly. She is our third best customer, and will probably soon take
BecOnd place. The union of all parts
Of the Hritish empire in a commercial
federation is only a question of time.
When that shall have been concluded,
under a system of preferential advantages insuring the English market to
the colonial producer of raw materials
aud food products and the colonial
market to the English manufacturer,
it will strike tbe l'nited States a double blow.
Our best customer, Greal Britain,
and our third best, Canada, will trade
loss and less with us and more and
more with each other, and it will then
be permanently impossible to repair
the error. Indeed, the fate of former
attempts to secure reciprocity, tlie rapid growth of Canada In the resources
th. t give dignity and pride to a nation, and all the economic conditions
of the time, indicate that, should tlle
present measure fail, no other can succeed for years to come.
Only Ignorant Oppose It.
There ought not to be one voice ln
the country against an agreement
worth more than armies and navies,
more in dollars aud cents than the
opening of new markets elsewhere, for
which wo are prepared to spend hundreds of millions.
The public must not be deceived by
any pretenses of political   hypocrisy.
Every   public   man   either   knows   or
does not know the true value and 00-
\ ious effect of this reciprocity   agreement,    lf he does not know, he is not

On  the second  point,   the   llcens

Checking of Monopoly.
As in the operation of railways, so
in the operation of power plants, there
arises from the nat tue of the case a
tendency to amalgamation, which, if
proprely controlled, makes for cheaper service, but if allowed a free run
often results in a monopoly that is not
at all desirable. For example, of the
5,356,000 horsepower now developed
from water in the United States, something like thirty-five per cenl is controlled by a small group of capitalists
who are In the possession, permanent
or temporary, of the best sites where
power can be produced at low cost and
In immense quantity; and these large
concerns are now gradually "coupling
up." not to reduce cost of operation so
much as to help one another to overcome the "uneven load" common to all
power companies, and the fluctuating
volume of water mi the river or
stream.   The   National   Conservation
i Commission   says   in   its    last    report
I (1909, Vol. 3, p. 177, in a paper by the
! Commissioner  of  Corporations),   that
lowing to these causes "very rapid anl
; very recent concentration has already
occurred," and "the effect on the public interests of such  present   and fut-
ure conditions is a matter for serious
public consideration."
To   Prevent   Abuses.
Mr. Oliver's regulations which   proven!    such   abuses   deal     With     water
powers that are small by comparison
with those at Niagara falls and other
sites  iii  the  l'nited  States;   Iur    certainly they proceed on a righl line In
checking undue combination ami  mo

Some Other Conditions.
Except in certain cases which arose
before the passage of the act of 1908
and the regulations issued under it,
all waterpowers controlled by the Dominion government in tlie prairie
provinces, the British Columbia Railway belt, the northwest territories and
the Yukon that are not under actual
development are open to be acquired
direct from the government on the
conditions laid down in the regulations; the flrst condition being actual
development without delay, and the

Control   of Charges.
The essential feature of Mr. Oliver's
of any moment; but Mr. Oliver's twenty-one-year lease, with a revision ol
the terms, including that of the rental
plan is government control of the tolls | payable to the crown at the. end of
or charges imposed by the leasing i each period, is admitted by competent
companies, together wiih periodical re-1 American authorities to be preferable
vision of the lease itself. A compan
son will illustrate. The Long Sault
Development company, chartered by
the state of New Vork in Governor
Hughes' time, imposes, after an Interval, a rental of so much per horsepower, payable to the state, but with a
Ilxed minimum of .$25,000 a year. The
company operates on the American
side of the St. Lawrence neatly opposite Cornwall. The bill granting the
franchise was allowed to become law
by the Governor only on condi;ion that
the state should be paicT'a rent. The
terms are. however, vicious in three
particulars. First, the rental per house-
power for the amount first developed
is higher than for later amounts, although it is evident that there should
be an increased instead of a decreased
rental with tlie increasing quantity of
power produced, since, like everything
else, electric power can be manufactured more cheaply on a large than on
a small scale. Secondly, the franchise is unlimited as to time and the
act creatiug the corporation gives it a
perpetual existence, that is to say, the
company has the use forever of the
enormous power at the Long Sault at,
all things considered, a low rental,
notwithstanding that the market value
of the power a few years hence will
be several times wdiat it is now; and
thirdly, there is no control on the part
of the state over thc charges made by
the company to Its customers, the consumers of power,
Licenses Are Limited.
I'nder Mr. Oliver's policy, on tho
other hand, a license to use water for
power purposes is issued for a period
of Iwenty-one years, renewable on the
fulfilment of the conditions for three
further periods of twenty-one years
each While it is contemplated that
the license shall be effective for an
aggregate period of eighty-four years

.Mont real.    Feb.    6.���The    Women's
christian Temperance union members
continue    to   flght    against,    fashion j
freaks,  but  Its  members  blame men
for the fancy ornaments that are being
1 worn by persons of tbe fair sex.
The president of the local union,
.Mrs F, II. Waycott, stated Saturday
to :i reporter that ibe members are
going ahead  with  their  work  against
1 freak forms of dress, which, it is explained, are devised by commercial
people for no other idea ihan to make
i money.
The local president stated that the
union are not against pretty dresses<
but it is those out of the ordinary gar-
; moms and varieties that they are
fighting so strongly against, and they
hope that the time will shortly come
when people will recognize the unimportance of these loud garments,
which at the present time are in demand by a large number of women.
The union pals all the blame on the
men, who are, tbey claim, attracted by
such styles of dress, and it is confidently asserted that as soon as men
cease to be attracted by such garments, then will the women commence
to dresa with better taste.

world, however, there is a growing disinclination to tiike any further pari In
exposition projects, and it is believed
tbat  Germany's contribution  is  likely
to fall much below the standards set

Many   of die   foremosl   industrial

while some are directly opposed to the
acceptance of any invitation to advertise their wares In this manner. Even
should the governmenl again set aside
ii handsome sum for the exhibition,
therefore, ii would be necessary to
overcome this antagonism from pri
vate quarters if the empire is to be

The promoters of the fair will have

make the invitation attractive if they
wish a large display from Germany.
