BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 1922  GJQTTINU INTO PRINT  There are a lot of people in this  beautiful old world of ours who do  like to "get into print" just as often  as it is possible to get there, and not  iVay for the space occupied believing  that the editor has nothing clao to do  but to promulgate the higottc! idoas  of some poor fanatic, with a mission  to reform the world from his li'tle  sphere.  The other week this paper receiv  ed a letter firom a fellow down,in the  States with a tariff bug in his head.  He was seeking national fame at the  expense of the editors of tlie country  whom ho asked to print his long epistle, just because he wrote it. I lib letter required an answer. Anions the  things that were said,to,him was the  fact that "Sometime "since, we quit  giving advertising'to'those quite able  to pay. Opportunities offered themselves every day "but were declined  with thanks.", Then the .letter concluded with tho .following "The  Sphinx, the 'Gireat Mystery' of Egypt  has stood-silent-since 2800 B. C, and  has never uttered a word,���������not even  stuttered. We hoped that it would  not be-as long or as hard a struggle  to convince him that .his advertising  should be paid for as it was' to get  the Sphinx to speak but that his letter could not bepublished until such  time as a cheque was forwarded.:  That was about a month ago am!  this week- a fine letter was received  in answer. It had taken' him three  weeks to write it, and believe us he  lost no time in picking up words to  express, his . ideas.. -Among other  things, he was going to' write a letter that would shrivel the editor and  the whole staff, machinery and all  His name as a reformer would be remembered in the minds" and hearts  of the people long after that of the  editor had been forgotten, and a few  other things."

This grain was  stored in government interior terminal elevators at Calgary and Saskatoon. Early in March about 4 00,-  000 bushels of this grain, had been  disposed of, a considerable proportion of it, going to Ontario, Queb<x\  and more eastern points. The Seel  Purchasing Commission supplies se-.^d  ,oats in car loads only and at the net  cost of the re-cleaned seed. It is  understood that during recent montlu  bankers and others have persisted in  encouraging merchants to be cautious.

This soil evidently needs the bacterial life and humus' that green rnannu  ing will supply, and also needs to-be  worked to let in the air and sunshine.  Apply lime after plowing under  the green crop or in the fall. In  September, 1022 you can .again sow  rye and vetch if you want to keep up  this practise for another year, or if it  could then be seeded to grass' or left  to bo sown the following spring ��������� in  crimson   clover.���������Country   Life.  ants have been so guided by these  precautions as to have In many cases  an insufficient, supply of seed grain  to meet the full , requirements.

In some countries  the matter has recived consideration.  hut not with any marked results. To  bonus families, to tax bachelor'-, and  spinstersi'1 to provide the use of doctors and .hospitals free, are among  the means that might be adopted.  All these are subject to objections.  Perhaps .; when people have doii3  without children sufficiently long-  there will be a swing in the opposite  direction; and once more motherhood  will be deified and ,it will be the  desire of ,womeu as in former days r.o  perforin iheir uatuiial functions.

Canada has in the Ontario Hydro-  Electric power transmission line,  one of the longest in the world, and,  in the Chippnwa-Queenstone power  canal one of the greatest engineering  works since the Panama Canal.

Honored more in the  breach than in the observance, the  order of the majority of the Police  Commission that the'Louies Day Act  must,be, strictly enforced, resulted  in" 40 business men. being reported  by the police to headquarters. The  names of these tradesmen, who are  charged with violating the act, will  be submitted to the attorney-general  for his decision as to what action  shall be taken against them.  The order against practically all  forms of Sunday trading was issued-,  by Police Commissioners Marchant  and Staneland.

DISCRIMINATING  AGAINST  THE MOTOR  Years ago, ���������. before the advent of  motor cars, the highways were used  by horse-drawn vehicles. But we do  not remember that any special feii.5  and taxes-were levied upon them and  their drivers, for the building ��������� and  upkeep of the roads. Nor was that  because such vehicles were content  with unimproved roads' which, cost,  little; since it was in the-.days-of  horse-drawn vehicles that" we;began  and proceeded far with the construction of macadam, telford'ahd asphalt'  pavements, in city aiid. country!-- The-  roads were paid for not exclusively.  by those who drove upon them bu'c  by the whole community.

IN  LESS THAN 3 TRAIL*  SEATTLE,      April    1. ��������� British  Columbia will go "dry, bone dry, within the next three years. Roy Lyle,  Washington prohibition commissioner, declared recently    following"   an  nvestigation into the governmental  controlled liquor traffic in the prov-  nce.    He said the present form ' of  liquor regulation would effect this.  "While ( the provincial govern-  nent's' control" of liquor has lessened the former evils," Lyle explained,  'it has not proved an entire success  n some ways. Many of its propon:  mtts admit tlie system is hot good. I  ound a surprising number of offi-  ials and leading citizens favoring a  one dry law.

In-   England,  efforts .were recently made to secure  the shelving or repeal of the   Fisher  Education Act-of 1918.    In response  to these requests the Board of Education issued a   circular to all   local  education authorities in which    they  set.forth certain economies' to which  the Board will give its,   assent.    Tho  .circular'takes' a wide and sane view  of- the: situation, aiid    while it'urges  and :eveu requires   economy in many  directions, It givee the local    authorities, clearly to understand;that refusal will meet any suggestion to economies rwhich would in    any way iw-  confronted   with the    alternative co  suffer.'it Is directed to incur the expenditure.   We draw attention to tho  situation in England    because it    is  evidently much on a par with the situation here in Mission City: In   both  Cases the effort is based,   ostensibly.  on a desire for economy.   The fact of  the matter is of   course, that a   so-  called "sa'ving" on education    which  in any way restricts its just development iSMiot economy, but a peculiarly ignorant form of extravagance, Mr.  ,Clyncs, the British,   Labor    member,  summed up tho situation    accurately  when he-declared, in the    House   of  Commons some time ago;  "There is  no state expenditure more worth incurring; than this outlay upon educating the-masses' of the people."  pair the efficiency    of the    ordinary  opment.'-,   Where a local authority is  services of education or their devel-  FORECASTS OF    .

In agricultural implements ������for  instance it is estimated that the present, radical price cutting will continue and the market ;wll remain weak.  In the case of automobiles the demand is increasing owing to seasonal  tendencies and price . reductions.  There will be further cuts in prices  and the demand will be most active  for tlie lower'priced cars.  In iron and steel the demand is' improving, with manufacturing activity  about 40 per cent, of capacity. Prices  will continue weak but business, will  be better in, 1922,,tlian in 15)21. In  hardware, prices will continue weak  for months to come and tho outlook  is only fair. <In tires prices arc at  the bottom. .Therei .wIlli ho unusually keen competition, but demand will  be. bettor this year-than last.  In lumber there will be an improved demand, with keen buying and  conservative buying. The condi-  fion-of tho leather- industry is fair.1  Tanners arc working'to about 50 per  cent, of capacity.

Smith, secretary of the Vancouver and District  Basketball League, which is fostering the movement to organize the pro  vincial govelrning body, has sent this  invitation to the editor of this paper  asking that it be turned over to tho  proper, authorities.  The. time is certainly ripe for tlu;  organization of a British Columbia  Basketball Association, and it is to  be hoped that every district and city  in the!province will be represented at  the organization meeting. The Vancouver officials are asking basketball  leaders In all districts to communicate with M'i\ Smith at once, and even if they are not able to send representatives, at least to write and say  that they are in line with the action.  The basketball game has been  booming in ^British Columbia this  Winter.as never before, and if any  reasonable means'of awarding provincial championships is to be arrived at, there must be an organization  in  charge.'
