Sea    past  THE   MAMj-OKimit  -IIOUfi������J3  "The man who cannot forgive any mortal thing," says an exchange, "is a green hand in life."  The appropriations for the different-constituencies of tlie  province have already been decided upon by the provincial government. These appropriations are- in the main one-half of  what they were last year; and last year they were a little lower  than the year before. Of course the amount appropriated can be  made go a long way towards putting the roads in good condition but it is a dead cinch that not many new roads will be'built  throughout the province during the coming season, if the old  roads are to be kept in repair.  It has been charged that the late government did not use  "the money to the best advantage���������that it took fifty cents to put  fifty cents worth of work on the roads. We are not prepared to  contradict this, nor yet to say it is true. We only know that in  the Fraser Valley the roads improved during the past few years.  But it is not likely that the present road employees will be able,  to stretch out this year's appropriations to do the work of last  year. The past winter in the Fraser Valley has been a hard  one on the roads���������they have been frozen, and partly frozen and  then thawed out so often, that with the traffic, they have reached  that stage where they will need a lot of repair before they vili be  as good as last year. As good as last year is not what we want  ���������we want them a little better than last year. Then we will be  making progress. Present day business demands good roads  and the government that neglects to provide for better roads  than last year each year will find that when election time conies  there will be a lot of explaining to do to the elector and voter,  let. alone be .returned to control the reins of the government.  It is a hard thing to explain to the ordinary man that there is  no money for road improvements.  So far one active multi-millionaire advocate of conscription  of men has definitely declared for conscription of wealth. The  distinction belongs to E. W. S.cripps of San Diego,who bus signed  the demand of the American Committee on War Finance for the  taking for War purposes of all incomes of over $.100,000 a year.  Mr. Scripps makes it clear that he does not ask that his wealth  be treated more tenderly than (he lives of other men. But how  lonely he must feel among his fellow conscriptiouist millionaires  Requests to take a position similar to that taken by i\lr." Scripps  have been sent by the Committee'on War Finance to John I),  llockfeller, Vincent Astor, and other wealthy men prominent in  urging drafting of men. So far they have given no intimation  that they would have their property treated \n the same way.���������  Public, New Yovk.  "I wiH stop advertising:   that will decreased my expenses.

ANNUAL SNOW FALL  There is a great deal of truth in the following paragraph  from the Republic Journal:  When the civil war closed the energy that had awakened  under the stress of necessity could not be stopped immediately.  The most remarkable development of the country was taken up  before the ardor kindled by unusual exertions had died out. War  is hell, but it is a great renovator. It stirs up the sluggish blood  and brings men with eagerness to a point of action. The fever  is being kindled in the present war. When this war is ended,  whether it be brief or a long duration, a new enthusiasm will be  characteristic of the national spirit, and a new area of great  things naturally follow."  Too many people in this country appear to be under the impression that they are doing, their share in the production and  patriotism movement by raising prices instead of growing foodstuffs. Before this war ends a great many sham patriots will be  relegated, to the scrap pile and the true patriots will^ appear on  the surface.  The prohibition question in British Columbia is altogether  too tantalizing. One day the "drys" are on top; the next day the  "wets" bob up serenely. This alternate current of public opinion  has been the daily routine for many months past. In the name  of common sense, and a decent respect for the people's intelligence, give us whiskey or give us water; we can be happy with  either. But this perpetual juggling with the question puts  man in as great a misery as n old toper is in during the fall  and spring seasons, when it is too cold for beer and a little too  hot for Scotch. Under  present conditions  a man  doesn't  know what camp to train for.     It should not be very difficult to  decide the question.    If the soldiers' vote was nonestly taken  A fah'.e showing the annual  amounts of snowfall and temperature for the last two years has been  issued by the Dominion meteorological service, of Victoria, as a matter of  information following the obnormal  weather conditions in most parts ol  the province. From these figures it  is seen that the snowfall on Vancouver Island has not been as heavy  during the past year as in 1915-1916,  while in Cariboo and at Glacier  and on the lower mainland the past  year-has been abnormal. As the  winter has been unusually cold and  the spring very backward dangerous  floods may occur in the lower Fraser  river should a pronounced and continuous warm wave set in during May  or June. This would be even more  pronounced should it occur about  the time of extreme hightides, viz. a-  bout the 9th and 23rd of May or the  6th and 20th of June.
