East and West and the Maritimes may differ in regard to tariff  schedules, freight rates, railway construction policies, and harbor improve*  ments. but one and all are vitally interested in the'question of population and  in taxation problems. ,  Every Province in Canada still possesses large areas open to settlement  and  only awaiting people to bring them under  cultivation and  thus  render  them  productive  and a source  of national wealth.      Even the most thickly  settled rural districts in Canada are capable of sustaining a denser population  through more intensified farming, while in Northern Ontario and Quebec and  in all lour Western Provinces there are vast unpeopled areas.

Lady Cynthia Mosley Is A Socialist  NERVILINE  It Acts Quickly  papulation goes on increasing in a greater ratio than the capabilities of the  country to employ and support. Nor, in the changed industrial conditions  which have resulted from the war, does there seem to bo any possibility of a  material improvement in this situation.  ln times past the United  States absorbed large numbers  of immigrants  from the British Isles, but under its quota system the doors of the big American republic are,now practically closed.      There is a good and sufficient reason for this new United States policy.      Population across the line haa now  reached over  110,000.000,   and the annual natural increase  is  1,800,000-      In  other words, every recurring decennial census shows an increase in population  of 15,000,000.      Before long the figure  will be 20,000,000.      By far the  larger portion of this increase is in ihe .cities, with the result that the United  States is rapidly reaching the point where it will no longer be a self-contained and self-supporting nation able to-feed its own people.      It has, there-  lore, antl quite naturally, called a halt to immigration.  Canada, however, occupies an entirely different position. Our population  is small and our territory large, and for the most paijt unsettled. It is open  to serious question whether Canada is morally justified in rigidly restricting  immigration," and holding large areas unsettled and idle, when millions in the  British Isles lack employment because there is none to be had.  Canada may feel that it is not called upon to contribute to tlie upkeep of  tin* British Navy, and that it should not. obligate itself to participate in the  defence of the Empire us a whole, and in other respects should not bo expected to adopt policies purely from an Empire standpoint. But situated as  * the Dominion i.-> in the matter of population and vacant territory it, can hardly be" dented thsit, so long as it is part of the Empire., it has some responsibility for the welfare oi all British people.  At. the present time Canada could render no bettor service to the Empire,  and incidentally to itself, than by evolving and putting into effect a wcll-con-  sid-red plan whereby a large number of people from the British ?sles could  he irani-iV-rred to this Dominion. Something is being done, but not nearly  i*Doii**li, At present we are only nibbling at immigration, instead of going  in'o it. in wholesale fashion.

Daughter ok Marquis Curzon   Accepts  Labor Nomination  Bady Cynthia Mosley is proud to  have been asked to run for tlie parliamentary seat in a constituency,made  up mostly of miners, on the Babor ballot. She is a socialist and glories in  the fact.  This daughter of tho late Marquis  of Curzon ,iml his wife,made this  statement in addressing a meeting of  the electors which endorsed her -candidature,  "Comrades," said . Bady Cynthia,  "some of you do not know me very  well, and wiLl wonder why on earth 1  am in the socialist movement. The  other side is always taunting me with  the query: "What have you in common  with the working''woman?''  "Well, I have a husband and two  little children, and I know what I  should feel if I had not sufficient food  and clothing for them. I was brought  up in a political atmosphere, but the  politics was another thing. What  has happened to me has happened to  many young people of late 'years.. I  felt that I wanted to find out things  ms'self. "  "I got work in an oflico at thirty  shillings a week and- had my wages  raised to three pounds. I also have  worked on the land;. I have taken a  course in economics in a "London  school and have hail my eyes opened  ln the Bondon slums. ^  "I do not want to go into family  troubles, but it was a bit of a header  for my husband and me when we left  the Conservative party.  "I prefer being --'labelled a socialist  rather, than, a laborite, because I am  a socialist through and through, and  nra proud of it."  U.  S.  Ten  Million  Sets  Predicted  For  By Year 1930  Predicting an expenditure of $150,-  000,000 for radio by the ."fans" of the  nation during 1925, experts have estimated that by 1930 'there, will'be.'"BV  000,000 receiving sets in operation in  the country. Five years ago, approximately $2,000,000 was spent for apparatus, and last year the amount had  increased almost-175 times that, figure.  In 1923, there were 115,350 sets in use  on the farms, and one year later tho  number, had more than doubled. At  the beginning of the industry, all apparatus were assembled by the owners, but with the steady development  of parts and hookups, the volume }oL..  ready-built instruments purchased increased until about forty per cent, are  now sold ready to tune in. To supply the mora than 4,000,000 homes now  ccruipped- with t receiving sets, programmes are broadcast from 56"> stations.���������Popular Mechanics .

' ���������  WHAT OTHER PAPERS SAY  f& QBHlm,  New Stock of  Harness  Second Hand Store in  connection  Am Mfrabeffi  Shoe and Harness Repairing  Be Careful with Ashes  The piling of hot ashes against a  fence or in proximity   to rubbish is  the direct cause of  many fires.    To  keep ashes-from the  furnace or the  kitchen range, well  av-ay   from out  buildings,   rubbish   heaps   or   back  fences, is good judgment.     In shak,  ing down the furnace   in the morn���������  ing, it is   practically impossible    to  guard against hot embers dropping  down from the   grates.    These   are  dangerous to the  point  of  making  an outbreak of  fire   a.   certainity if  piled against the wall   of    an    outbuilding   or   back    fence.     Ashes  should    be   piled,   separatelj*    well  away from all   inflammable matter  ai.d if possible,   out   of   the   wind  to reduce any existing danger from  Hying sparks.  Taking the additional precaution- of    throwing    a.  few  shovelsful of snow over   the    morning's   ashes is also   a form   of   fire  insurance   that    commends   itself.  An ounce of prevention   outweighs  a pound of cure.    Better by  far to  exercise a little care  each day than  to   stand   mournfully   regarding   a  great heap   of    smouldering   ruins  that once was a   thriving and prosperous town.  rtothnp. m.ntao,Toojbo* __ru_j������_p  tract mmt. 8U_noaiM ���������qaitmaot  l__rt_>_l___i card ttrmtt. wmtttutr-praot  ett* cartMta������_ nmintnm mm ������U  Onuf.. wi_n<I������t_l������atd wipar a_o_ ulek-  rtaat luaaltaas rim..

BANK'S STRONG POSITION  /  Mr. Peleg Howland, the President,  in his address said, in part:���������This  country has again been blessed^ with,  a bountiful harvest* the production of  grains much exceeding as far as the  Western Provinces are concerned  that^ of last year. In the older  Provinces the-returns will be equally  as good as last year; in some fruit  sections better perhaps, in dollars and  cents.  Manufacturing and trading -generally, Jt is anticipated, will show somewhat better returns than last year,  partly through economies and greater  efficiency and partly through somewhat increased turnover. ^ The necessity for economy is showing itself in  the extension of the chain store  system,' in syndicates-buying and in  the tendency to merge on the part  of both traders and manufacturers.  ^   Our Commercial Affairs  Our foreign trade increases���������our  exports growing in greater proportion  than our imports with a large balance  ���������in our favor, maintaining the Canadian dollar at a premium in New  York.- Altogether, there has been  recently considerable improvement in  our commercial affairs, and I think  that we may count- witli reasonable  con6deu.ce on its continuation for  some - time, though it must be remembered that a portion *of the  activity- conies from expenditure of  the Dominion, Provincial and municipal Governments, on the wants, not  needs,., of transportation, education,  administration and philanthropy���������for  which ^e are running into debt���������and  that your taxation has not been  lessened in any direction, but, on the  contrary must increase.  ������       'The Business Tas  Assessment values of Reai Property  and "Buildings are very high. The  business tax, tQQt has increased with  the increase in Assessments. Very  bigh ...rentals must be" obtained on  business properties in order to pay  the regular tas, the business tax, local,  improvement taxes, insurance, depreciation, and a reasonable interest  return on even their assessed values.  These, increased rentals must be  recovered from some source, or business collapses. I wish it were possible  co make all voters realize that they  must help to pay these increases in  the price paid for goods or services,  and thajt all might join in urging that  our affairs be s'o; managed that we  may [nop be further; burdened directly  by increased rates or, indirectly by  increased assessments. ��������� > Surely, we  can - wait for widened streets,. new  bridges^ or subways, a nc������ what-not,  until we are better, ablp to bear the  burdens they impose.    '  ��������� Our Railway "Problem  - It is Of the utmost importance that  our Railway problem be solved; that  a period be put to the increase in tbe  Country's obligations caused- by the  expenditure on the Government Road  and the deficits for its operation.  How c-in we hope that desirable  immigrants will voluntarily seek us  out ir our burdens are not becoming  lighter, or that new enterprises will  be established or satisfactory development undertaken if Sales and.. Profit  Taxes give promise .of indefinite continuation. Are we not paying: altogether too much.for our experiment  in Government ownership?  Why not get rid of the Road, if a  Eurchaser can be found for it, on a  asis that would give a reasonable  chance In the future to tWe buyer and  thus peg our loss? Once the country  can Bhbw a surpjus in its revenue,  that ia'real, new heart will be put'  into the wliolflr-gommunity. What  defence is there for Public Ownership,  if it does not pay? There ia no magic  about it. There is n o inherent benefit  irrespective of results. ������  Substantial Improvement  The General lV|anagcrf Mr. A. E.  Phir������f������f- -"i-lii in pari*:-���������Tt > is rnoRt  gratllying to call your attention to the  fact that the statement before you  today Bhowa a substantial improvement in every particular. It Is noteworthy that the deposits which fell  in 11)24 to a total of $83,000,000 have  readied- the substantial total of  , S.96,000,000, Total nftscta which  'fihrnnk during tho period of readjustment   to   $tl"������,0fl0,'000    have    np-ain  A satisfactory feature of our deposit  business is that, notwithstanding the  closW bf a number of unprofitable  branches as mentioned in the Report,  the number of depositors of the Bank  is not less, but snows some increase.  Our total cash holdings are  S26.33S.27i, compared with ������27,153,-  070 a year ago. This equals 24.16  per cent, of our liabilities to the  public -which is a very high percent--  age. _  Dominion and Provincial  Securities _  Investments of the first grade,  consisting of Dominion and Provincial  Government securities, etc., Canadian  municipal securities, and items of that  character total $21,918,600. . - Call  Loans ih Hew York are $5,000,000  and bur Call' Loans in Canada are  86,563,093, a total increase in-those  three classes of investments of  $8,211,389. If we. add these to our  easn holdings, we get a total ������f  $59,819,964 equal to 65 % per cent, of  our total liabilities to the public, and  if we include our loans to Provincial  Governments and to Municipal Cor-  B orations, $6,509,63-, which are very  igh-class assets, the total is $66,875,-  829, and the percentage, is 61 y& per  cent., compared with 583_ per cent,  last . year, which in turn .was the"  highest for a number of-yearS.  Current loans are $50,225,800 compared with $49,356,226.���������an increase  of slightly under SI ,000,000. It will  be noted that the position of the Bank  is exceedingly favorable for taking on  desirable commercial loans as soon, as  renewed business activity brings about  a demand for that class of accommodation.

Business Gradually Improves  Last year and the year before I  remarked that conditions were gradually; improving and, though business  conditions still leave a good deal to be  desired,_ it would seem possible that  better times are not far away.  The position of the agriculturist has  greatly improved in the last two or  three years. The mining of precious  metals is improving steadily under  favourable conditions. Tbe water-  powers of the country are being  steadily developed, with a consequent  increase in business activity parti-������  cularly in the production of pulp and  pappr, .which has, become a very  important industry, and is continually growing so much that Canada .  is now running neck and neck with the  United States of America Cor "the  position of the greatest producers of  newsprint ini the world.

In o '  ind no litoli. Thrn '  for,.a moment, and he stopped in his  tracks.  "Wapoos, 'they-rabbit, had run his  furry head into tii<?~" snare, and his  first frightened jump had "shot" the  sapling to which the* copper wire was  attached so that he was now hung half  in midair, with only his hind feet  touching the ground. And there "he  was dancing ftiadly while the, noose  about his neck slowly choked him to  death.  Baree   gave   a   sort   of   gasp.       He  could understand nothing of tho part  that  the  wire  and  the   sapling were  playing in this curious game.      All he  could see was that Wapoos was hopping and  dancing about on his hind  legs in a most puzzling and unrabbit-w  -like  fashion.      It may    be    that    he  thought it some sort oi" play.      In this  instance, .however, he did not regard  Wapoos as he had looked on Umisk  the  beaver.      He knew that Wapoos  made mighty fine eating, and after another moment or two of hesitation he  darted upon his prey.  McTaggart had heard no sound, for  the snare into which Wapoos had run  his head was the one set farthes't from  the   camp.      Beside   the   smouldering  coals ot his fire he sat with his back  to a tree, smoking his black pipe and  dreaming covetously^of Nepeesey when'  Ba'ree continued his night wandering.  Baree no longer had the desire to hunt.  He was too full.     Uut he nosed ia and  out of the starlit spaces, enjoying in\.  mensely the stillness and the  golden  glow of the night.      He was following  a rabbit run when he came to a place  where two fallen logs left a trail no  wider  than his body.      He  squeezed  through;    something   tightened   about  his neck;   there was' a sudden snap���������  a swish ��������� as the  sapling was released  from  its  "'trigger"���������and    "Daroe    was  jerked oil his feet so suddenly that ho  had no time to conjecture as to what  was happening.  The   yelp  in 'liis   throat   died   in   a  gurgle, and 'he next moment he waa  going through the pantomimic actions  of Wapoos, who was having his ven-  ! gen nee inside  him.      For the  life  of  ��������� him Ikiree could not keep from danc-  lier '  . ling about, while the wire grew tighter  and   tighter about  his  neck.      When  ho snapped at lhe wire and hung tho  weight, of hi.s body lo the ground, the  sapling would  bend    obligingly,    and  then���������in its rebound���������would yank him  for    an     liudunl     completely   off  tho  | earth.       Furiously   he   struggled.       It,  I was a miracle that the fine wire held  i him.      In a few moments more II. must  j have    broken���������but     McTaggart,     had  heard   him!

Would Camp in Tonqism Valley  Wonderful   Climbing   Field   Found   In  Jasper National P-ark  That the \Tonquin Valley district of  Jasper National Park offers one of the  best climbing fields of the entire Canadian    Rockies,     where     experienced  climbers    will    find    many    splendid  peaks worthy of their hest efforts, was "  the statement made to members of the  Winnipeg section of the Alpine Club  of Canada at a-recent meeting by Dr.  J. W. A. Hickson, of Montreal, president of the club.      Dr. Hickson spoko  on    the    1925    camp in the Southern  Rockies and urged that the 1926 annual   camp   be ' held'.-in''the' Tonqutn  Valley.      There, he said, the members  of the club would find such peaks as  Redoubt, Barbican, Turret and Geikie  awaiting  the  hardened  climbers,  and  there    also    -were-    many    unelimbed  peaks  awaiting   conquerors.      At  the  same time, there were many fairly easy  peaks which could be used for graduating climbs.      The Tbnquin Valley, he  explained,   was   easily   reached   from  the Canadian National Railway station  at Jasper in a one-day journey and on  arrival there the members would find  one of the best, if not the best, climbing    fields    in    the    entire    Canadian  Rockies.

By Driving the  Poisonous Acid  From the System  Rheumatism attacks people when  the blood is thin and watery, or charged with impurities, thus setting up inflammation of the muscles and joints.  Cold, wet weather or sharp winds may  start the pains, but the cause is rooted in the blood and to get relief it)-:  must be treated through the blood. As  a blood builder and nerve tonic Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills are unsurpassed,  and for that reason do not fall to give  relief to rheumatic sufferers when giv-  'en a fair trial. Among the rheumatic sufferers who have proved the  great value "of this medicine is Mrs.  Simeon J. Tatton, Indian Head, Sask.,  who says:���������"'For over two years I w,as  an intense sufferer from, rheumatism  and until I began the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills no treatment that I  took helped me any. Th<\ trouble  grew so bad that I could not move  around the house without help, and  finally I had to give up and go to bed.  Words canmt tell how much I suffered,.,and I coald not bear to have anyone come near me. Finally one of  my neighbors strongly urged nie to try  Dr. William--' Pink Pills, and I decided  to do so. In the course of a few  weeks I could feel an improvement,  und I was able to get up. I kept on  taking tho pills until all-traces of the  trouble were gone, and I could again do  my housework, feeling like a new person. Three years havo passed since  that and there has never boon the  slightest return of the trouble, so that  I feel safe in saying that tho rollel  brought by this medicine Is -permanent."  Vou can get tho pills from your  druggist, or by mail nt 50 cents a box  from Tho Dr. Williams* Medicine Co.,  Brockville, Ont.  Horizontal  -Godly.  -Becomes engaged to  marry.  ���������Get up.
