The day means  much to the Canadian people, romind  ing them as it does of the many informs carried out during a long rblgn  of Victoria tho Good.  THE EFFICIENCY   EXPERT  In the above connection It is painful to read in the B. C. Federationist  the folowing:  "Empire Day will soon be upon  us.    It Is one of the crudities of  Imperialism worked off on the colonies by the    ruling    nucleus    of  Great Britain where nobody bothers about it.    It was cooked up to  lend enchantment to    that    view  which only distance can'furnish."  In  a free  country likethis  under  British rule every man is allowed to  think for himself, but when a British  subject gets off anything like the a-  bove he should be dealt with accordingly;  but then'nobody takes much  notice of the/erratic editor of the B.  C. Federationist, as he:is hardly responsible now any more than he was  several years ago, when' he was going  to put Vancouver' on the' hike by declaring a strike of every organization  in the' city���������he failed, and since that  his  light  has  become  dimmed  and  especially the light that makes for a  government that will permit such as  he.to live any other place than in a  padded cell.  POTATO  PRICES   ARE   HIGHER  With the good weather prevailing  during the early part of the. week  and tho'farmors throughout the valley having completed their planting,  there was! a good attendance'at the  <  New Westminster market on Friday  last. There was also a'good attendance of buyers, and with a plentiful  supply of everything in all *the stalls  the market presented a busy appearance.  With the scarcity of potatoes on  sale.theprice jumped'from $20 a ton  to the high price of $30 per ton  or $1.50 per sack.  The flower section was'the principal attraction, for it was noticed  that nearly everybody that left the  building carried some kind of a potted plant or a bunch of cut flowers  In the meat section pork'and veal  predominated, selling at the sttlonary  prices.  Eggs were in great demand at last  week's prices, 30 retail and 25 cents  wholesale.  Butter brought the usual price of  3 5 cents-to 4 0 cents retail, and 30  to 35 wholesale.  Prices in feed were stationary.  The folowing prices were quoted:  Wholesale Poultry  Poultry,  live weight  ....  23c to 24c  TEN  COMMANDMENTS OF  CLEANLINESS  TIMBER ROYALTIES  'The present timber Royalty Act of  British Columbia' is chiefly significant in that it makes provsion for the  basing'of all timber royalties, subsequent to January 1, 1920, on the sale  value of the timber cut, over and a-  bove an arbitrarily fixed price of $1S  per thousand feet board measurer.  'The percentage taken by the government of this prospective value-increase will be 25 per cent gradually  rising to 40 per cent in the succeeding 25 years.  This is no" new principle,  for as  early back "as 1889 the Dominion gov  ernment required from    holders    of  timber limits In' western  Canada  a  royalty of 5  per  cent of the total  value of the lumber cut, which value  was to be based on the average price  ' obtaining  during  the three  months  preceding "the  sale.       But   at  that  time the* price  of .lumber   was  not  sufficiently high to bring in any very  large revenue on this percentage bas  is,' bo in   1898   the  stumpage  dues  were changed to the fixed rate of 50  cents per thousand feet, board measure .which is.the rate at present. Although the retention of the peroentge  royalty  woul' dliave  secured  larger  ' returns from this source    with    the  steadily lumber prices, yet the prin-  Ducks. live weight Z\  18c to 22c  Retail   Poultry  Small chicks, per crate - $3.00  Ducks, live weight   22c  Ducks, small,  each....  35c    to  50  c  Squabs,  each   -. 25c  Spring Chickens, dressed per lb..25o  Hena, dressed per lb .... 20c to 22c  Vegetables  Cucumbers,   each   ._ ���������.. 15c  Rhubarb, per lb  _ 15c  Asparagus,   2   bunches   for    .25c  Onions,  green,  per hunch   ...5c  Potatoes  per  ton , $20  Potatoes, per sack   $1.00  Carrots, per sack .._  75c  Cabbages, per��������� sack    75c  Parsnips, perjsack _.. 90c  Radishes per. bunch    5c  Lettuce,- per b'linch -  5c  Turnips, per sack ..,.  75c  Eggs   and   Buter  Eggs,   retail   . .j...j...................30c  Eggs, wholesale ..j. 25c  Butter, retail, per lb   46c  Butter,   wholesale-    35c  Wholesale   Meat  Pork1, salt, per lb ��������� 13c  Pork, per lb   ~ lie to 12c  Mutton, per lb  ���������  12c  Leg of Mutton, per lb   16c  Veal, medium, per lb  16%  Veal, large, lb   12c to 15c  Retail Meats  Beef, best rib rcasts   18c  Beef, loin ..... ^  25c  Beef,   short  loin       28c  Beef,   sirloin   ..*  -23c'to   25c  Boiling Beefs ���������...,. :..~.  12%  Beef,   pot  roast   ���������    15c  Pork    '..^    20c   to   25c  Mutton  _ 18c to 20c  Leg of Mutton ...^ :.... 18o  Sugar  cured  corn, pork   15c to  20c  Home-mad epork sausage 15 cto 20c  Halibut,  3   lbs ....

In the middle ..of the last century  economic conditions made it imperative for the ruling classes to abolish  chatel. slavery.-, The' slaves themselves could not think of it and  fought against it, askng themselves  who was going to -take care of them'  if slavery was abolished?  But "higher interests" needed the  abolition of slavery, had to have it,  and putto work the effective business  specialist, who in 18 62, in theguise  of a London banker, came to the  States the bearer of a confidential let  ter to bankers of the Union to the  effect that: "Slavery is about to be  abolished by'the war power and chattel slavery destroyed. This 1 and my  European friends are in favor of, for  slavery is but the owning of labor,  and carries with' it the care fo rthe  laborer, while the European plan,  led on by England, is capital control  of labor by controlling wages. This  can be done by controlling money."  The efficient business specialist had  seen that there, was a less offensive  and a more effective lash than- the  actual physical whip: the fear of  hunger.  In December, 1865, tho great reform was sanctioned and embodied  in the Constitution of the United  States by proclaiming the thirteenth  Amendment.    Here it is:  "Neither slavery nor involuntary  servitude, except as a punishment for  crime whereof the party shall have  been duly convicted, shall exist wilhin  the United States or any place subject to .their jurisdiction.  "Congress shall have tho power to  enforce this article by appropriate  legislation."  Just fletcherize that for some time  and see if you can disgest that "shall  have the power" That is tho legal  jewel,' the present of the efficient business specialist.  That was all the well meaning  man,-the "humanitarian" and the  "charitable" could do for tho slaves  and the question is still open whether those .slaves who fought against,  abolition'because- apprehensive of tho  future-security were not right when  they asked thero,*eWos who .was to  take care of r.hem. T'ley had an intuit]  w.l  and times  physical whip; it paralyzes the worl  ing man's musslus and brain and soul  and in most cases not himself alone  but henceforth' compelled to look to  him for daily bread.  ���������' The efficient business " specialist  verily knew what he needed; what he  wanted- and how to get it. ��������� Henceforth controlling money got rid of the  handicapping feature of' slavery, -"the  creed of the laborr.  Now controlling money is organized,'understands its own interest, and  keeps its business specialists very efficient and is .steadily working in its  own interests, the only thing it.cares  for; while the workers who produce  the money, are not organized in the  sense of understanding that their own  individual interest is an integral part  of tlieir common interest.  Meanwhile controlling money progresses in direct proportion with the  progress of labor saving devices and  all the new inventions which it naturally has control and knows how  to control making labor very cheap  and. the.laborer still cheaper, needs  a little retouching, a kind of a quick  ening process���������and the efficient business .specialist is again put to work.  It is a very safe guess that few if  any, workmen noticed a very short  news item in" small type in very few  newspapers to' the 'effect that some  time before Christmas a prominent  banker was grantd'an interview.by a  very prominent official. The new  currency bill became law a couplo of-  days before Christmas.  The same theory that had worked  so well concerning labor was bound  to work tho same way concerning  properly. True, mortgage was at  work, and it was too'slow; ;Some kind  of legislative help was needed. That  is all.  ' Conrtol of laborby money had  brought about the fluidity of labor,  Some quickening device was needed  to accelerate the fluidity of property,  by increasing the number of "debtors" to money.���������-New York Call  The idea of cleanliness is not a new  one. The study of cleanliness as an  aid to health of the individual is as  ol da the Iiills. But 'the study of  sanitation and cleanliness with a  broader outlook, taking the health  of the whole community, is comparatively a new study.  , Clean-up days have become common inthese days and, especially this  year, the exchanges coming Into this  office have been filled with the gospel  of civic beautifying and civic cleanliness. The prevelence of typhoid fever, as pointed out in many - of the-  papers of various parts of the province, is entirely a sanitation matter  in most cases.

An ounce' of alum in the rinsing water will make  the garment so:far inflammable that  in the. event of its coming dn contact  .with fire it will only smoulder and  not .burst into flames.  Muslin or lace curains may be  similarly treated.  To clean a sewing machine, place  it near the fire.to get warm, so that  the congealed oil about will melt,  Then oil it well with paraffin, working it-well to get the lubricant into  every part.- As the dirty oil, oozes  out wipe it off.

The fear of hunger is a thous  nd. times- wortie than     the   ' actual  health departments of those places  with a view of having a supply clean  and free from disease. The death  rate in all cities has been decreased/  by the application of common sense  and modern knowledge to sanitation  conditions.  Under the old system of ' doing  things, it was every man , for himself: Tho fact is, however, that your  next door neighbor's back yard may  be a menace to your health, far  greater than the probability of accident in the mine, on the -street or  in any other occupation. This idea  is well'emphasized in the "Ten Commandments of Cleanliness," drawn  up by tho Boston Bureau of Charities. They aro ten axioms to Individual and civic health and should be  studied as such.

It does  sound well, but who is to appoint  the cabinet minister? The ministers  are snposed to, look after the inter  ests of the women* now, and Mr. Mitra's suggestion is a direct confession  that they do not do it. If they had  done so women would- never have  sought tho franchise, which .they recognise is a'means to an end. It  would be interesting to know which  of our estoomed politicians in B.

' To be sure  the cost of production is almost negligible when calculated for a single  utamp but when" h'o' -learns, that a-  bout forty million stamps must bo  printed daily to-.meet demands of  our letter writing . population, ,he  rcealizes that the annual bill for printing postage stamps amounts to a  very considerable llgure.  The manufacturing cost has been  reduced, materially of late by.the invention of Mr. Benjamin It. Stickney  mochancial export and designer of  the Bureau, working under direction of Mr. Ralph, Director of the  Bureau of Engraving and Printing of  tho .United States. ' As1, postage  stamps are. printed- from tho. engraved plates, the ordinary high speed  printing processes' are not* applicablo  to them. Ordinarily it is necessary  to moisten the paper so that it may  readily be pressed, into the engraved  lines of the plates to pick out the ink  that fills them Tlie common press  cannot-exert-sufficient prossure upon the paper to make.e good prints  if the paper is dry. And so up to a  recent ,date all the paper had to bo  moistened- by, hand, which was a  slow and cost'ly process. Then about  four years ago Mr. Stickney invented  a machine for wetting papor, and ho  followed this up-two years ago with a  stamp printing-machine that would  print on a roll of dry paper. Not only  did this eliminato the bothersome operation of wetting tho paper, but it  reduced the clerical work of keeping  track of the separate sheeets on  which the stamps were printed; for  now they are printed on continuous  rolls at-the rate of 12,000 postage  stamps  per" minute.  This'high; speed machine has since  been further improved and is now fed  from a drum in the front. It passes  up over the rollers, and then down  between .the feed roller and the printing cylinder. 'Here an enormous  presure is put on the dry paper, and  is thus enforced into every line of  the engraving. At the back of the  cylinder is the inking    font,    below  GOOD WORK  is what you will say when you  have seen our bath room after  wo have installed the plumbing  Sanitary bath room appurtenances are as requisite to health  as a doctor is when you are ill.

Abbolaford  which are metal'fingers,  covering a  Lampa   ' $5.50-space about eight inches wide and ex  tending the full length of the cylinder. The fingers vibrate lengthwise  on the cylinder. A wiping belt vibrates with the fingers, but at. the  same time moves forward, wiping the  surface of the: cylinder as clean, as if  the work were done by hand.  ' In-Mr. Stickney's first machine the  paper   passed   from- te   printing   cylinder over a series ��������� of    electrically  heated rolers to dry the ink.    In the  present machine the strip of stamps  passes upwardly, and, in the language of the Bureau of the Engraving  and Printing, "loops the loop" over  a long curved upper plate heated by  electricity.      The stamp strip    then  .passes under a roll of extreme lower  front  and   proceeds  rearwaradly. to  the gumming front. After being automatically gummed it passes into ' a  steam-heated  drying shaft about .25  feet long.    From the drying shaft It  enters the perforator and slitter and  is discharged from the machine    in  long  strips  that ...are  coiled  up  like  ribbon.���������Scientific American.
