At the last directoi-s' meeting two  rather important committees were  named.

President Compton was at the  helm, and the session was favored  with quite a large and representative turnout of the growers.  Wliile all round  satisfactory returns to the growers in 1919 and  the prompt payment of the   same  forshadowed a financial statement  that   would prove the best in the  Union's eight or nine years' history,  When J. W. Hamilton got through  with   a brief but lucid analysis of  the balance sheet, culminating with  the  announcement that* the liquid  and   potential  assets  when set off'  against the liabilities gave the $5  Union   share   a present-day value  of  $9.93, the  shareholdsrs present  could  hardly   grasp    the"   change  that had been worked in the Ulrica's   financial   standing and business dealings in the four years that  Messrs. Staples and Hamilton had  been in the charge of the concern.  As   Mr. Hamilton,s   statement   of  Union affairs appears elsewhere in  this issue  it will be  uipiessa-ry to  dwell further on that feature of the  meeting.  President Compton's opening remarks were brief. He asked for  whole heareed support of the B.C.  Fruit Growers Association assessment of a quarter of a cent a box,  the funds so raised being urgently  required to protect the growers' in-  tersts in. handling express rates  controversies, freight schedules, car  shortages, etc., j*ce well as providing  President���������Jas.

The McCabe bridge crew has the  new bunkhouse well along to completion, and'whon ready it will comfortably house a dozen sleepers.  The erection of the new bunkhouse  is bringing to light many stories of  the discomforts of sleeping quarters of  fifteen and twenty years ago. One of  the best of these yarns was sprung  here last week.

The ttfeasurer's report to the  end of January showed a balance on  hand of $142.81.  After a letter from the secretary of  the B.C. Institutes on that subject  had been read it was resolved that the'  date of the annual meeting in future  should be held in December in place  of January as in the past.  The library committee,' consisting  of Mrs. Lyne and Mrs. Hamilton, submitted their report to the meeting.  They had met the committees of the  Board of Trade, United Farmers and  school trustees on Feb. 6th and after  tbe matter of the Co-Operative Lib-.  Vary scheme had been very fully discussed it was decided to call a public  meeting as soon as possible to find out  tbe feeling of the community as to tho  liklihood of obtaining the necessary  funds.  A new school visiting committee,  consisting of M*-s. Henderson and Mrs,  Speers, was named in place of Mrs. St,  Jean and Mrs. Lyne, who resigned  from the previous committee.  Mrs. Garland gave a reading from  Mrs. Parson's Manual on Public Meetings, which was listened to with great  interest. After roll call tea was served and $8.7r> collected.  After the  general  meeting  had adjourned the members who had been on  Mrs. Downs' side  in   the  competition  for new members   met and decided to  give an afternoon tea to the other side  on Fridav.

In the new manager,  Mr. Loveday, he hoped a worthy  successor wonld be found. Mr.  Compton assured, however, that  Mr. Loveday had been informed  that the Union looked to him to  deliver the goods, and that failure  in this respect would mean short  notice dismissal.  Manager Staples had no uddi'ess  to make. -sFor this year he proposed to omit oratory   bnt  would  be  pleased    to   answer   any   question  about   Union   affairs that growers  might like to ask.    In this connection   he  announced   that for 1920  greater    warehouse    neoomoeation  would be required  at Creston  and  that a warehouse 80 x 40, oi- thereabouts should bo built at Erickson.  This latter warehouse had been promised for 1919 but due to the uncertainty of tlio orop   early in  tlio  season   construction   had   been deferred.

The institution is out of  fruit of this. sort, and will cheerfully  pay transportation charges on any  and all fruit sent. St. Eugene deserves well of this section and it is hoped  there will be quite a generous response  to this appeal.  Mesdames Cook and Maxwell and  Messrs. Hayes and W. V. Jackson,  who comprise the 1A20 fall fair prize  list committee had their initial session  on Tuesday night, when considerable  "progress was made at revising the list  of awards.

An overheated stove at the  rear of the edifice had set the back  wall tin fire but fortunately the dense  clouds of smoke issuing from the  building were quickly noticed and the  corps of volunteer lire lighters extinguished the blaze before much damage had been'done.

Ruggles was glad to comply with this  suggestion, and was warmly greeted  by the kindly old gentleman.  "My dear young friend," said he,  beaming at Ruggles over the tops of  his shell-rimmed pince-nez, "I'm delighted to see you. Pembroke gave  me the most of your news, but I am  most anxious to hear the tale from  your own lips. Do sit down. You  are still lame, I see."  "Oh, I guess I'll limp for the rest  of my life," Ruggles answered.  ''Thank you ever so much for your  kindness, Mr.  Falconer."  "Not a bit of it. A great pleasure,  I assure you. I was deeply grieved  to hear of the death of my esteemed  friend, Colonel Hamid Pasha. I knew  him intimately some years ago when  he was in the diplomatic service of  his country."  Ruggles smiled and nodded. "The  day before his death," said he, "I was  reading to him from the copy of  Swinburne which you gave him. He  often spoke of you and of how much  pleasure he had got from your present"  So!5crs:irs,*icra!aCaaa"Ui. En bases, 25s., SCc  ��������� BY ���������  HENRY G. ROWLAND  Copyrighted.

"Any fellow that would keep on plugging away at his job after a jolt like  that might as well make up his mind  to stick to the same job for the rest  of his life. He wouldn't deserve to  get on."

"Dear me���������is that really so? But do  tell me your story. Pembroke's letter^ left  me  quite bewildered."  'ihcy settled themselves cornfort-  ably, and Ruggles proceeded with his  narative, describing his experiences  and presenting mind pictures with an  unconscious ability. The texture of  Ruggles's discourse contained no  holes; no dropped stitches whereof  the warp or the woof required to be  followed back, unravelled and knotted, here were no questions to be  asked; merely one or two which need-  to be answered. The essential one  Ruggles emphasized according to its  proper value; nameh-, that of social  status.  "Believe me, Mr. Falconer," said he,  earnestly, "these girls are all right.  They're just as nice as they can be.  The only thing is, will people believe  it when thcy know that ihey have  grown up in a Turkish harem? The  sound of that sort of puts you off.  Folks don't understand that a harem  can be just as nice as any Christian  home, if it's managed like it ought to  be. Hamid Pasha was a man a good  deal like you; kind and gentle and religious. Say, Mr. Falconer, what difference does it make when a man is  a good man whether he speaks of God  as 'Allah' or 'Buddha/ or any other  word which means the same thing in  his language?"  "As I grow older," answered    Mr.  Falconer,    "the distinction    becomes  less and less. The Osmanli Turks are  perhaps  the  most  religious people in  thc world, for the simple reason that  they respect the religion of others.    I  have  visited   Constantinople,   and     I  was  profoundly   impressed  at   seeing  how in thc mosque at Eyub Sultan the  mosaics   depicting  thc   life   of   Christ  had been not only preserved but carefully protected.     I  can  think of     no  other  creed   which   would   have  been  so liberal to the pictorial commemoration   of  an   alien   faith.    As   for  our  late estcmed friend, Hamid Pasha, hc  was simply a devout man unshackled  by   the   tenets   of   any   orthodox,   reli-  jrjion.      Tl'm���������h'm���������so    two    of   these  i l.-ulics   are   Mohammedans   and      two  I profess Christianity?   H'm���������that point  j may bc considered later.    From  what  I you   tell   tr.e,   I   am   sure  that  Hamid  j Pnshn   wouhl  have placed  no  restrictions   on   their   religious   freedom   of  thought.    But an you point out, their  temporal development depends at this  moment   principally   upon   thc   social  lines along which it may be directed."  !���������'.lur^'es wondered if there had ever  hen  so wise a man as  Mr.  Falconer,  and   he  blessed   thc   fate  which     had  bronchi   them  together.

"Besides, they've  got to get my consent to marry if  they want to get their dots."  Mr. Falconer nodded. "Quite so,"  said he. "Now, in regard to this  question of a chaperon. Have you  had anybody in mind?"  Ruggles flushed. "I thought of Miss  Challand, sir," he answered, "if you  think she'd care to do it"  Mi-. Falconer struck his hands together. "The very person!" said he.  "But, then, how about her niece?" And  he looked at Rugglcs so keenly that  the boy flushed, for he read the double question.  j "Oh, that needn't interfere," said  1 Ruggles. with a faint flush. "Miss  Westbrooke could live with us, too.  It would be a good thing for the girls  to have such a nice companion. You  see, Miss Elliot is a lady and all ihat,  but, after all, she's a paid governess."  "I'm afraid, though," said Mr. Falconer, "that Miss Westbrooke might  object to becoming your constant  guest���������especially after the rather  shabby way in which she treated you.  She has since -told me that she regretted her behavior in that respect."  Ruggles's face brightened. "I'm  mighty glad to hear that," said he.  "After all, it was my own fault. I  ought to have told her just what my  job was. Believe me, Mr. Falconer,"  ���������he leaned forward and looked earnestly into the kindly, paternal face,���������  "I've learned a lot about people and  things in the last twelve months.  When I was selling shoes for a living  I thought that I was just as good as  anybody, but I've learned different  since.    I know that I'm nowhere near  location, I think that I can be of some  assistance there. I know of a very  nice property in Neuilly which has  recently been .offered to be let or sold.  It belongs to a friend of mine, the  Comic de Nitr*'". "We micht "O out  and look at it. I am free this afternoon, and if you like I can tell my  ���������servant to telephone to say that we  are coming."  Ruggles expressed his appreciation  of this kindness in a manner which  bordered on the emotional.  Ruth and her aunt, Miss Downing,  arrived at Mr. Falconer's handsome  apartment in advance of Miss Challand and her niece. Ruth had no intention of missing the beginning of  the second act of the most interesting drama that had_ ever fallen within  her youthful experience, and one in  which, it must be admitted, her heart  shared equally with her_ head. She  wanted to see the meeting between  Ruggles and the girl who had treated  him so���������in" Ruth's opinion��������� snobbishly and ungratefully. --  -fTc**   "������    Co****''!*-''-'!!'-''-"! **e  \  ���������*-. xr.      m-x,        xr^r-x x.-.x-x.���������...

The sale constitutes a record for this part of the  province, aha indicates the high quality of cattle Southern Alberta fanners  are breeding.  Mr. Steed has been busy for the  past four or five years building up  his herd on his irrigated farm near  Stirling, Alberta, and that he hae attained a large measure of success is  shown by the fact that farmers of the  older province come lo him to buy  foundation herds.

The modern method of treating indigestion and other forms oi stomach  trouble is to tone up the stomach and  glands to their normal work.    Eyery  step toward recovery is a step gained  not to be lost again.    The  recovery  of the appetite, the disappearance of  pain after eating, the absence of gas,  are steps on the road to health that  those who have tried the tonic treatment remember distinctly.    Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a tonic    every  constituent  of which    ia helpful    in  building up the digestive organs, and  therefore the very best remedy     for  simple or chronic    cases of stomach  trouble.    The     success of  the  treatment is best  shown  by hundreds of  cases like the following.    Mrs.  Chas.  Comer, Picton, Ont., says:���������"For upwards of two years I was a great sufferer from indigestion.    Food would  ferment in my stomach, and I would  belch   gas  with  a burning   sensation.  Often i would be troubled   with nausea,     sick     headache  and     dizziness.  Notwithstanding   that   I   was   under  medical    treatment, the trouble grew  so bad that I would only    eat    when  absolutely  forced  to,   and   I   was   in  constant  misery.    I   was finally     advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  and had only heen using them a few  weeks when I  found they were helping  mc.    I  very     gladly     continued  thcir use, and the result is they have  made me a well woman, every vestige  of the trouble having disappeared.    I  am so grateful for wliat Dr. Williams'  I'ink   Pills  havc  done  for  me that  I  strongly advise any who may be suffering from stomach  trouble to  give  the-vi  ���������->   fair  trial, and  I believe  that  like myself they will find a sure cure.''

For the tourist booklet  publicity committee meeting at Fernie on the 7th inst,., Mr. Jas. Cook  very thoughtfully furnished the de  legates from here with a half-box  Mcintosh Red and Delicious apples  with which to regale the delegates  when in convention assembled.  Along with these went a similar  half box-tfcwhieh the board of trade  turned over to Editor Wallace of  the Free Press, and for which the  Free Press facetiously chronicled  tlie Creston visitors invasion of Fernie as follows:  The rotunda of tiie Fernie Hotel  was fragrant with the aroma of apples Saturday night, and ior a time  on Sunday morning. So persistent,  indeed, was the odor of the orchard  that permanent guests at the hotel-  ry insisted on Manager- Kerr explaining why he was seizing upon  the springtime twist to the weather  to possibly induce the unwary to  surmise that Fernie,had again slipped back into the banana belt  Billy stoutly denied being accessory  to any such misdemeanor either before of after the fact, and it was  not until the Publicity Commision-  e.-r, Spauling, was located that the  phenomenon could be accounted for.  To him there was no mystery connected with the matter; the sweet  smelling savor was entirely due to  the presence in Fernie, as guests at  the hotel, of Messrs. Mallandaine  and Hayes of Creston, who were  here for the meeting of those who  are compiling the   tourist booklet,  "���������ICI ; +.\. ftr. .     rxr.Zr..-.

Next to tree fruits Creston is fast  coining along in strawberry output,  the value 'of- the 1919 strawberry  shipping being almost $50,000,  which (iguers leminued.Mr. Kayes  that in 1914 the total export* trade  111     r-rt-r^J'i.-r      1 *��������� t *!

Major Mallandaine was equally enthusiastic over  the prospects of expansion, stating  that horticultural department employees who had recently taken a  census of the fruit industry had  predicted that in 1924 Creston or  chards would be yielding on an  average of 600,000 boxes of apples  a year, which, at an average of  .ffl.50 a box, would give tlie growers a return of almost $1,000,000.

If the  reclamation project was figured  out along proper lines, the work  would not interfere with the development of power, Mr. Campbell  said.

Accounts payable stand as $7569.  This is a much larger figure than you  have been accustomed to see in. your  balance sheet. Of this amount $1050  was due to wholesalers on ordinary  current account and has been automatically settled as it became due.  The balance $6519 was due to growers  for products shipped out in December, but since have been paid.  Turning to the assets side of your  balance sheet, the value of your real  estate stands at the same figure as  last year. The warehouse figures  have been increased by the addition of  the cost of the new buildings and con-  structural alterations to your other  buildings. Your merchandise stands  at $7151. Goods on hand���������made up of  flour, feed, hay���������$5377; crates and  hexes en hand ���������-12-S4' the bai^-nrjc, of  $510 being in wrapping paper, nails,  lime, sacks, etc.  In anticipation of increased prices  which have since eventuated our buying at the latter end of the year was  very heavy. In fact the month of December was one of the biggest in the  history of your trading department.  The automobile account is a new  account. A quick means of locomotion was almost indispensable for the  better conduct of your business. ' A  new Ford car was purchased this  year. Previously your manager had  placed his own car at the disposal of  the Union. It was out of the question  to reasonably expect that such an arrangement could be indefinitely continued. The ear figures at $708 in  your balance sheet.

On office furniture we have written off for depreciation a sum of $41.  This account now stands at $373. We  were offered, if we wished to sell, a  sum of $200 for your safe alone by an  expert safe man who was in the Valley a few days ago, so you may see  that the book value of your office furniture is quite conservative.  Accounts receivable are $7119. Like  your accounts payable they are much  larger than you are accustomed to see,  but as I have stated before your trading operations in December were very  heavy. The accounts outstanding  have been very carefully scrutinized  and are perfectly good. In fact, at  date, the larger portion has been already collected.  Turning to our profit and loss account our total expenses for the year,  allowing for bad and doubtful debts  and depreciation, amount to $13,239.  Your earnings, after providing for brokerage aud commissions paid to ob-  bers, amounts to $20,471, leaving a  surplus to carry to your No. 2 account  of $7231. I havo not this year made  up a comparative statement of your  expenses with former years, as our  business has undergone such considerable alterations in both volume of trading and other conditions that such  comparisons would be of little value;  perhaps misleading.  The sum of $7231 carried to your  No. 2 account, and added to tho balance of $419 carried over from your  1918 account gives you an available  surplus of $7050, after placing $2000  to the reserve you carry forward to  your new account $5050. To briefly  summarize the financial position sis  shown in tho balance shoot you have  floating assets of $21,008. If you deduct, from this sum neeomils payable  your only indoht.cdnoi-in ($75(59) you  havo a surplus of $13,439. In udditlon  you have your real estate, warehouse,  office furniture, totalling $3941, thus  giving you a total of $17,3SO free assets. Your liability on share capi-  lal in $8730.

Institute  on Ihe lirst of March our work of lhc  ly in the earlier part of the season,  you will, perhaps, more readily understand the delicate reminder that we  were forced to place on some statements sent out to you.  While  we  now  have a respectable  | surplus in our business we have still  much  to  accomplish  in  the ^way  of  providing increased warehouseTaccom-  modation to meet the requirements of  your   increasing   crops.       This   will  mean a good deal of capital expenditure.    You also have to consider outside conditions.    Firms who have    to  manufacture your supplies   long    before you require them are no longer  giving long credits.    With  increased  cost of material and production their  capital outlaw has so increased  that  they find it necessary to reduce   the  terms of credit.  Jobbers and wholesalers, to whom  you sell 2rour products, are not stocking up their warehouses as they used  to do in former seasons, but are contenting themselves with a reasonable  supply for the winter season. And  the growers are not forced to assume  some of the risks and to finance themselves.  So far these changing conditions  have not affected us very much but outcrops are increasing with surpassing  rapidity, and the time is not far dist  ant���������if it is not already here���������when  you will either have to store a part  of your crops or find wider markets  than you have been used to. The days  for selling the whole of your crop,  and having the proceeds in your pocket before the end of the year is, I venture to assert, fast drawing to a close.  We shall, therefore, have to rely more  and more upon ourselves to work out  our own financial salvation.  In the Union you have the machinery at your  command to solve your  problems, and  if you will only look  upon it as an effective part of your  farm equipment, and not as something  quite apart, you can allow your profits  in the Union to accumulate until your  floating  assets  will  be  sufficient to  take care of all your needs both in  buying supplies and giving you financial  suppoi't when  your returns  are  delayed.   Do not for a moment forget  uuii  tli������ TJuion   uclonga  to  juii,   auu  that with   yourselves lies the responsibility of shaping its destiny. ^  Jm K.

Fart 7  iron  TP JL  WEDNESDAY, Feb. 25  Mrs. Charlie  Chap  lin  IR  en a  Charlie Chaplin  in Two Reels of  Real Fun  Ford Monthly  Thirty of the forty-two members the  Creston local of the United Farmers  of B.C. now boasts were out for the  special meeting on Saturday night, before which the chief business was the  consideration of resolutions and other  matters that the delegates will have  to handle at the provincial convention  at Victoria on Monday and Tuesday  next. The meeting was in charge of  President W. V. Jackson, who had the  pleasure of welcoming several of the  new members who had joined up since  the previous meeting.  The first resolution presented was  one dealing with the investigating and  reporting as to the feasibility or otherwise of the Reclamation of Kootenay  Plats *    This was introduced by    Guy  Constable, and was readily seconded  by John Blinco, and is worded as foi  lows:  Whereas at the request of the Province of British Columbia the Dominion  Government,  by  Order-in-Council  dated  September 2nd,  IS19,  proposed  to the United States Government    to  enter  into   an   agreement  under  the  authority of which the Reclamation of  the Kootenay Flats may be bully secured on terms and  conditions just and  equitable to all concerned;  and a reply has been received from the United  States  Secretary   of   State   that   the  question is under consideration by the  proper  department   of   that   Government;  And whereas it wouid appear to be  desirable in order to provide for the  proper working out of drainage plans  by the  Canadian and  United  States  engineers',   the   proportionate   assessment of the lands proposed to be reclaimed and  benefited in both countries, and the construction of reclamation works on navigable waters under  the jurisdiction of the Dominion, that  these overflowed lands owned by the  province should be transferred to the  Dominion Government, and in the opin  ion'of the Reclamation Service of Canada it would be a simplification of the  problem  of  reclamation if  this  were  done;  And whereas a considerable area of  these lands is already vested in    the  Dominion Government and under the  Dominion Reclamation Act, they can,  with the assent of the Province, undertake the reclamation of. lands in the  nrmriTKio   ���������rivP    -Ri'iilall    rinlnwh-in ���������  x .  -. .~       xrm      ���������-.���������xr���������       x-, xr x xxx.x xr-tn ,  Therefore be it resolved, that this  convention of the United Farmers of  British Columbia is of the opinion that  it would be desirable for tlie reclamation of the Kootenay Flats to be undertaken   by   the   Dominion   Government, and accordingly urge upon the  provincial government   to   offer    the  grant of these provincial lands to the  dominion government for reclamation  purposes under the Soldier Settlement  Act.  should   elect  representatives,  instead  of the  present   system   of   choosing  them by electoral districts.    Mr. Adlard urged that the delegates to the  convention see to it that the constitution of the U.F. be amended so   that  any man in the community could join  the organization provided they were  convinced that he was seeking membership with the idea of furthering the  cause they had at heart.    Ivlr. Adlard  figured  that the organization    could  not get very far    politically    unless  membership was available to others  thaxi men who were  off the land.  Instructions were given the secretary to write the U.F. central office  ior prices on stumpimg powder. Mr.  Humphrey's word was that the U.F.  price was even lower than that quoted  by the government.  raakuijj  living  -%V\*  ���������xSxxJJJKTRzSS-^PA-t  -- -ir*--  r  Special Values  tn  Fleece-Lined Underwear  for Men and Boys  Men's Shirts and .Drawers  ���������si  tpi,  Kr-Tl  Boy's Shirts and Drawers, all sizes  00c.

In placing it before the meeting Mr.  Constable briefly explained the precise meaning of the resolution and the  steps that had been taken leading up  to getting the project in its present  position. With one exception all who  took a hand in discussing the matter  approved of drainage. T. M. Edmondson raised the question that probably  the doing away with the overflow waters would produce early summer  frosts, but in this view he was not supported, Mr. Constable assuring that he  had made it his business to get the  opinion of both Canadian and U. S.  climatic authorities and these all a-  greed that the presence or absence of  the flood waters made no difference  whatever to local climatic conditions.  The resolution was unanimously adopted.  Three  of  the  four  resolutions  submitted by the Canyon local to Creston  for approval were agreed to.    The one  that failed to receive- favorable consideration called upon the authorities  to prohibit Oriental    immigration   as  well as to prevent those already here  from owning the lands they may now  be in possession of. The Creston members urged this would    be    running  counter    to    existing    constitutional  i-ights as  well  as raising a question  that was entirely in the hands of  the  British authorities.  A. resolution by W. Truscott and C.  O. Quist urging the B. C. government  to amend the Prohibition Act so as to  do away with fines in faces of infractions of the Liquor Act and make the  penalty imprisonment in every instance, was not favorably considered,  but in its place the government will  be urged to push for legislation to prohibit the importation, manufacture  and sale of alcoholic liquors for beverage purposes.  Another drastic resolution from W.  Truscott which would give us legislation to deport all citizens who do not  comply with the laws of Canada was  amended. The idea back of this resolution was to get rid of the Doukhobors, Ruthenians, Mennonites, Hutterites, etc., who at present herd themselves up in colonies and are not even  taking the trouble to have their progeny taught English, much less sent  to school.

This    is  a development  which has been in progress for some  ycars now, with the. result that Ontario is gradually losing- that preponderance of political power which it  once enjoyed at Ottawa.  As is well known, tlie. basis of representation of the provinces in thc  House of Commons is fixed by the  British North America Act, which  provides that Quebec shall always  have 65 member.--;, and each of the  other provinces such a number as will  give the same proportion of representatives to its population as the  number 65 bears to the population of  Quebec, and it is also provided that  following each decennial census a redistribution of representation shall  take place on the basis of thc population   figures   thus   ascertained.  Prior to the census of 1901 the unit'  of  representation  for all Canada was  22,900,���������that is, each group of 22,900  people was  entitled  to  a member at  Ottawa.    This gave Ontario 92 members to Quebec's 65, a difference of 27.  As a result of thc 1901 census, and the  Increase   which   had  taken   place     in  Quebec's    population,    the   unit   was  raised to 25,367, with the resr.lt    that  Ontario's representation fell from 92  to 86, because, proportionately, Quebec's  growth in population  \v  rapid th?-n Ontario's.    Follow  '   1911.   the   unit   w;  ;   time   to   30,819,  ;  10, a gain of 3; British Columbia 7.  a gain of 1; Northwest Territories 10,  a gain of 6; Yukon 1���������total 28. Following the 1911 census, these figures  were again increased, and today the  representation is: Manitoba 15, British Columbia 13, Saskatchewan 16, Alberta 12. Yukon. I.    Total 57.  Thus while the representation of  the five Eastern Provinces iii the  Housc of Commons decreased by 19  in twenty ycars, or an average loss  of a member a year, the representation of the four Western Provinces  and the Yukon has increased by 40, or  an average of two additional members a year. And if thc same proportionate increase in. population in the  West is revealed by the census of next  year���������as seems altogether likely,  judging from the recent official estimate of Saskatchewan's population,  which places it now at almost double  the 1911 figure���������the voting power of  the West in the House of Commons  will be enormously increased, while  not only relatively, but actually, that  of the East will be decreased.  The effect of this growing political  power of the West in the national  Parliament is fraught with tremendous possibilities, in the shaping of  national policies and in a probable  very radical change in the financial  and fiscal policy of thc Dominion.

The incidence of population is,  therefore, bound to have a profound  effect on future Canadian policy. This  will bc true not only as between West  and East, but is markedly in evidence  within the boundaries of the old provinces. Ontario is becoming more  and more an industrial centre, where  the populations of the manufacturing  and  towns   are  growing  while  kets  that are ready for our national  products.

Que  bee, too, is developing rapidly in an  Indus [rial sense, but in that province,  unlike Ontario, agriculture is also expanding. In fact, Quebec is forging  ahead of Ontario in more than population, tnanks to the lar-seemg anu  aggressive good roads and agricultural policies inaugurated by the provincial authorities. As a result, the natural resources of Quebec are being  more rapidly and scientifically developed than are those of any other province at the present time.  Students of Canadian affairs, and  those interested in our national development, may well follow with exceptional keenness the changes now  being wrought in all national, financial and economic policies as the direct outcome of western development  and growth in population, influence  ar.d political power.  V a Tidal Wav  Heart Disease and Nerve -  Troubles Sweep the .Country  Probably at no period in the  world's history have heart and nerve  troubles been so prevalent as they  are today.  The heart can't stand the stress  and strain of this busy, bustling age,  and the care and worry, the anxiety  and activity of business life constitute  a serious "drain on the nervous system.  Tlie business of this work-a-da"*-1'  world goes with such a rush that the  ��������� stoutest hearts and strongest nerves  break down under the strain.  On the first approach of any breakdown of the system Milbunvs Heart  and Nerve Pills should be taken. The  reconstructive power of these pills on  the heart and nerve system is simply   11   nidi vcuuun.  Mr. W. A.

JJ. II UllJ.l 1 Toronto.-���������Sir Edmund Walker, president of the Dominion Bank of Canada, at the annual meeting of the bank  here, referred to the numerous warnings given that economy nvust be  practiced in this country, but so far  these warnings have not had the  slightest effect, Sir Edmund said. Extravagance is the order of thc day,  and in nfy opinion will continue to  bc the order of thc day until conditions change and Jjiard times come on  US.  Sir Edmund states that while the  past year had been a prosperous one  for the banks, the future must cause  to all financial business,  exchange conditions were serious, he said, and in Canada a large  amount of money probably would be  withdrawn which had been borrowed  from England and Scotland by the  various mortgage companies, and  loaned on mortgages in this country.  "There is no inducement now to  send money from England," Sir Edmund said, "and there is every inducement for the English tenders to  have the money sent back to England  to take advantage of the low rate of  exchange."  Sir Edmund concluded by saying:  "No money can be expected from  Great Britain for investment in this  country until the exchange conditions change."

Mr. Gompers declares he doubts  whether the propaganda which  emanates from thc Bolshevik organization itself is more effective than  that conducted by those who claim  to be entirely detached from Russian  influence and Russian pay rolls.  He says he doubts whether publications issued by P.ussian Bolshevik  agents have as great an effect in  this country as those which like to  bc known as journals of opinion, such  as thc Nation, thc Dial, and the New  -r. *-,:.  tvcyuuiit.  -x-.i.mr.

He will sail for home February 1.4  on thc Adriatic.  "One of the most important  changes in England,'"' he said, "is the  breaking up of our system of large  land owners; who are selling their  holdings because they are unable to  pay the heavy taxes that have been  imposed upon them. In the sale of  these properties they are reserving  thc first opportunity of selling to thc  tenants whose ancestors have been  on the land for many generations.  By the establishment of many "small  farmers as property owners, we are  creating the thrifty- peasant class in  Britain, which has been such an aid  to France and Belgium in rebuilding those, war-demoralized countries."  The land-owning classes came in  for praise from Major Lloyd George,  who said they had made no effort to  profiteer during the war and deserved an enormous amount of the credit  for victory.  As to the feeling in Britain over  the lifting of thc embargo against  Soviet Russia, he said:  "Feeling in favor of re-opening  trade with Russia has been growing  for some time and is very strong at  Clemenceau io Visit  Egypt and France  Absolutely Sincere in His Decision to  Remain in Retirement  Paris.���������Former Premier Clemenceau has reserved a stateroom on the  steamer Lotus, leaving Marseilles on  February 3, bound for ^Alexandria,  Egypt.

They maintain that if the Soviet government is merely imposing its power  on the Russian people by tyranny, it  i*s because the people are cowed hy  privation and hunger, and that these  conditions will be perpetuated by a  state of war, the horrors of which  will fall, not upon the tyrannical  government, but upon thc peasants,  women and children.
