More    production    is  necessary to carry o nrfco war  to a successful issue.    Knowing  that the completion of the P.  G.  E. would mean more  production for B. C, we wore just  wondering, just how our prem-1  ier felt about the government's  obstruction-scheme so far as the  railway is concerned���������since the  Liberals came into power.  dealt with by the food controller, 01  by authorized investigation,    a pertinent Question, lioAvever, is the cost  ot  distribution from  the source    of  supply to the consumer.    The figures  give the exact sum the railway gets  for   Its  service,   from   the   point   or  manufacture to  destination and  the  cost  of  distribution  from  the  railway car to the consumer.-   The latter represents cartage, insurance, interest,   wholesale  ana   retail   profits  and deliveries, etc. The question that  naturally arises from a review of the  figures, is whether, especially during  the war,  the present system of distribution to the consumer is not only  loo costly, but involves the employment  of  many  men,  whose services  are  urgently required  in  other and  more   importa   indirections.  Railway Freight Charges  High   freight  rates   has  hnen   the  excuse, for many years of high  prices, especially in the west. The. Free  Press   originated ,and   conducted   a  strenuous campaign on this question  that  finally  led   up  10     what ' Avas  known as the Western Rate ease and  resulted  in  very substantial reductions-in  freight tolls.    Is  there still  1 another factor that lays a burden up-  !ou the community thatshould be remedied?    Look  at tho figures  carefully. From 20 to 30 per cent of the  rotail price of canned goods is in delivery from  the raihvay to the consumer.

Do you fully realize what continuous telephone service is Despite the weather, accidents, or anything that  may cause interruptions, it is seldom your telephone fails  to respond to your need. That your service is continuous  ' is the result of much work behind the scenes, effort that  you never see and seldom hear about.
