Jas. IF*. Bryant Replies To Critics  Of Drought Commission  In considering tne question of  drouglit conditions in southern, and  south-western Saskatchewan, there is  the tendency on the part of some, particularly those who have not studied  the question carefully, to make light  of the whole matter. These parties  say "There is nothing to worry  about, the climate has not changed in  the last thousand or two thousand  years. We have had good crops in the  they pushed their way year by year  from the North, during countless centuries.     The last glaciation of North  America, known as the Wisconsin, began    to    retreat    northwards    from  southern Saskatchewan  and Alberta  about twenty thousand years ago according to some of the'.most eminent  authorities.    Scientists    do    not    yet  know  definitely  the  cause   of these  great climatic variations, and we cannot therefore be certain that the climate of the world is not now undergoing great andE extensive aKerat-diis.  From the days of ancient Egypt,  there has been a belief that weather  conditions ran in  cycles���������seven lean  years with little rain and sliort crops  followed by    seven   fat    years    with  abundant rain.   Recent investigations  do not agree with this smaller cycle  and many attempts have been made  to study rainfall records in their relation to sun-spots.    The most famous  of all attempts to foretell the character  of weather over  long  periods  was made by Professor Bruckner of  Berne, 1890. He brought together all  available records of the sequence of  rainfall,  heights  of  rivers,  levels  of  lakes and other information connected with the fluctuations between dry  and rainy periods, and from all this  mass of evidence, he concluded that  a variation of rainfall recurred in an  average period of thirty-live years In  Europe.     By a similar method of calculation Mr. H. C. Russell of Sydney  past; we will have good crops again  Men cannot change the climate. Let j has traced a period of nineteen years  us change our methods of tillage and   "      "~ ~ ������-.-.--  everything   will    soon    be    alright."  Some say we should cut -out our sum-  merfallcw as  it  causes   the  land  to  drift; others say we should improve  on our summerfallow methods and our  crop rotation.    These suggestions are  good so far as they go, and if we were  assured  of a. normal  rainfall,  would  for the variation of the rainfall in  Australia. ur. i_ockyer has confirmed this calculation and found that it  applies to South Africa. Co!. Raw-  son after careful study of the records  agrees with the nineteen year period  in the case of South Africa.  Other scientists affirm that there is  unquestionably a   weather   cycle   of  be productive of excellent results. But j 22.4 years and it is stated that Bruck-  if there is a continued lack of mois-   ������er    later    concluded    from   further  ture in the subsoil, and if the rainfall  continues to be below the normal,  these suggestions will not be produc-  study that the weather cycles ranged  in length from twenty to fifty years.  In  the  Monthly   Weather Review of  live -of the desired results. Most ex-��������� March, 1931, there is a very interest-  cellent suggestions along this line! ing article entitled "Notes on Lake  were made in the report of the '"Com- I Levels" by Jesse W. Schurman, who  mission on Better Farming" in 1921, ; summarizes Bruckner's da.

Bruckner regarded; as  without parallel in the historv of ; peaks of his cycle, the lake level peaks  agriculture in Saskatchewan, and on I of 1820, 1850 and 1880, and some  nearly three million acres of what I eminent scientists have concluded  was once supposed to be the choicest I tbat the Bruckner cycle is a sub-  wheat lands in the Province, an aver- | cycle due to the planet Pluto.  the years 200 B.C., 530 A.EK, 1170  A.D. After each drought peak the  cycle of wet years started in again.  Huntington's theory is discussed at  length by J. C. Curry, in the; Annual  Report" of the Smithsonian Institute  of Washington for 1929. Mr. Curry  says in part:' .  "The geographical and historical  evidence in favor of the existence  of. a six. hundred and forty years  cycle is. inconclusive and Incomplete in the, absence of any explanation c*f its cause ari causes.  The alternating periods off migration and.consolidati.on are,; however,  so clearly marked that their existence can hardly be a matter of controversy apart from the question  of periodicity."-  Mr. Curry admits that "the evidence now under- consideration shows  that from; time to time, forest areas  become stepped and steppe areas desert, and vice versa." He admits that  "it is possible that changes may occur again on a scale similar to those  which destroyed the civilizations of  the past," and that some such  changes . . . . might again take  place suddenly and transform the  world in the life time of our own or  the next generation." Such considerations deserve greater attention than  they have, received in the past. "The  evidence has not been fully examined.  The position is thus obscure; but the  time seems ripe for fresh discoveries."  But there have been "fresh discoveries." The Popular Science Monthly  for September, 1931, gives an account  of a it. 20 year tree ring calendar that  has been pieced together hy Dr. Andrew E. Douglas of the University of  Arizona at Tucson. So important ia  his work that he has just been awarded th,e $2,500 Research Corporation  Prize by the Smithsonian Institute of  Washington, D.C.  An Investigation of sun-spots led  3Dr. Douglas, an astronomer, to his  study of old wood commencing in  1901. A careful comparison was made  between the measurement of the  rings on the big Sequoia trees of  California and the rainfall at neighboring stations and a formula was  developed by which the rainfall of  each year could be reconstructed from  the tree growth with a high degree  of accuracy. Each ring in a cross  section of a log represents a year of  The Royal Bank of Canada  age  of  around   one   bushel  of grain  per acre was harvested.  There is evidence that the rainfall  this autumn has been greater than  for some time past- and if we enter  again on a series of wet years, there  will be a tendency on the part of  many  to   forget   the  lessons   of  thc  During the Bruckner cycle, in continental regions, 'such as we find in.  southern Saskatchewan and southern  Alberta, there are two extremes, at  one of -which the climate is cool and  wet with frequent storms for a series  of years, and at the other end it is  warm and dry with fewer storms for  drought years and a reluctance to take \ a series of years.     These cycles have  steps to prevent a recurrence of sim- I been traced back hundreds of years  ilar conditions in the future. It is be  cause  I   believe   that   conditions   demand more than a change in tillage  methods that I offer in ______ article a  few ideas for the thoughtful consideration of the serious-minded farmers  of southern Saskatchewan and for all  those who have an interest in the future welfare of the Province.  Within   the  last  month   a  farmer  digging   a  well  near  Olds,   Alberta,  found a petrified branch of an apple  tree with petrified apples on it. Figs  and fig leaves as well as palm leaves  of a tropical variety have been found  in the   deep formations  of  the  bad  lands of the Red Deer River in Alberta. Near Eastend   in   Saskatchewan,  many traces of forests and tropical  vegetation   and   prehistoric  reptiles,  prehistoric horses and dinosaur bones  have been found. During the summer,  the bones of a prehistoric animal were  unearthed   not  far  from   Saskatoon.  All this is evidence of the fact that  in the dim forgotten past, climate conditions were very much warmer and  moister than they are today over the  southern portion of Alberta and Saskatchewan.       The  vegetation which  rosuited In the vast deposits of lignite coal throughout   southern    Saskatchewan, could have grown only in  a sub-tropical  climate.   Over  all   the  area3 mentioned are great accumulations of earth, of ice-worn boulders,  of scratched rocks which have clearly  been deposited by ice existing under  polar conditions at some time subsequent to tlie  existence  of  the  apple  tree, and the sub-tropical vegetation.  Some revolutionary force in nature  created a crisis in the ear th's history  and brought about what has been  called "Thc Ice Age." Geologists tell  us that there have been at least four  major ice ages in the history of North  America, when the ice fields now in  the Arctic gradually extended until  they covered a great part of North  America. Today in tho washed out  bottoms of ancient rivers and ravinc3,  nub-tropical vegetation and tho bones  of prehistoric mammals and reptiles  arc being unearthed after they have  been covered for thousands of years  by earth deposit!., boulders and grav-  LEG AILMENTS  If you. suffer from variaoso veins,  varicose ulcoro, swollen legs, tender  foot: and oth_.r similar disordem, write  for full information about; ELASTO,  tne lrt.?n..K. treatment which haa  brought ifilof to thoiiHnnda of men  unci women���������free sample sent post  free on rc.rni-.nt,  The Now Krn Treatment Co.

An exhaustive examination  of the records, and an analysis of  the thickness of the sequoia tree rings  in southern California has established  the belief held by many of the greatest living meteorologists and astronomers that these smaller climatic cycles are harmonic with a larger climatic cycle, which has been variously  fixed by different scholars at 252, 316  and 340 years, and it is alleged that  the rain peaks have been caused by  the influence of an invisible planet.  As a result of data obtained by an  expedition sent into central Asia hy  the Carnegie Institute of Washington,  Ellsworth   Huntington,   an   eminent  scholar, has    advanced    the    opinion  that there is a well defined relationship between changes in climate and  all  the  great  migrations in history  and  he   explained  the  great  migrations on the theory .of the  "shifting  of climatic belts." He examined with  great care the basin drained by the  Caspian Sea, being an area of about  sixteen hundred miles from north to  south, and three thousand miles from  east to west, and came to the conclusion that there was evidence of a recurrence of changes in climate ln Central  Asia during historic  times  and  that some measure of these changes  was furnished by variation in the level of the Caspian Sea. A comparison  of     physiographic,     historical    and  archeological   data   in   his    opinion  proved that   "pulsations   In   climate  corresponding in time and character"  have been common to all  the countries  in  this  area.       The  lakes  and  rivers    throughout   this   area   have  waxed and waned simultaneously on  different well defined occasions. From  a very careful analysis of the low and  high points of thc water in the Caspian Sea and after analysis of physiographic and historical data, Mr. Huntington comoB to the conclusion that:  "A regular succession of climate  cycles,  approximating six hundred  and forty years In. duration, each  including on tho average something  like Hire*, hmndrort    y*jr.r_.    of    Increasing aridity, has produced a series of alternating periods of migration and consolidation    in   Europe  and Asia, where tho effects can be  traced between the years 2300 B.C.  and 1600 A.D."  Ills conclusions woro briefly that  tho records revealed that climate ran  in cycles of roughly six hundred and  forty years. In around throo hundred of those years, thcro waa plenty  of moisture and civilizations wero  built up, cities and towns were os-  tabllHhod and agrioulturo nourished.  Then came a period of roughly throe  hundred years when tho rain-fall  gradually got icon, nnd terminated In  great droughts which drove tho poo-  pie out of Uio nettled arena.

C. E. P. Brooks, M.Sc, F.R.A.I.,  F.R. Met. Soc, honorary secretary of  the Royal Meteorological Society, in  his work entitled the "Evolution of  Climate," speaking of Huntington's  theory of the "pulsations of climate,"  said that formerly it was thought  that the migrations in Central Asia  and the Caspian Basin were caused  on political grounds on account of the  rise of Islam and the rule of the "accursed Turk;" but recently, however,  there has arisen a class of evidence  which cannot be explained away on  political grounds and which appears  to have decided the battle in favor of  the supporters of change In the  climate as the cause of the migration.  "The conclusions derived from, the  big trees of California," wrote Mr.  Brook, "have fallen admirably into  line with archaeological , work in  Central America, In Central Asia and  other regions and have shown- that  the larger variations even of comparatively recent times, have been very  extensive if not world wide in their  development,"  In what is now the desert of Arizona, which so far as moisture from  tho Pacific Ocean Is concerned, occupies a relative position to Saskatchewan and Alberta, at the east of the  Pacific Mountain, gauges, In regions  which are now uninhabitable on account of the lack of rain, are to be  found the ruins of an older conization and evidence ot an advanced  state of agriculture sufficient to support a considerable population ��������� in  places whore at present no crops can  be raised.  ���������Turning to SoiTth America the  Municipal records of Santiago, Chill,  i"0VC*U    that    tiiO    ^'C IlC i'4.1    CCSUX'jSG    o*.  climatic variety since 1B20, waa similar to that in corresponding regions  of North America.

There was a flood in 1047 after which  came a series of severe drought*. Interrupted by occasional floods which  lasted until the close of the eighteenth  century. Tho records thus Indiaato  a wot period centred about 1000 followed by a dry period during the  eighteenth century exactly parallel to  the records from tlio United States  nnd Europe.

China, the Levels of the Caspian, the Racial Movements off Asia,  and   the   Floods   and   low   water  stages of the Nile, and these have  shown so good an agreement with  . each other and with such records  of solar activity   as   we   possess,  that I cannot but feel that tlie climatic fluctuations   portrayed   are  definitely real and demonstrate the  solar control   of    climate   In   the  absence of disturbing- geographical  changes."  According to Professor J. Batrcll .of  Yale "University, forests at one time  extended over South   Western   Asia  which was thea a. well watered plain.  Ultimately these forests gave place to  steppe conditions. In many places in  Persia and Central Asia, where desert  conditions now   prevail,    there    are  traces of ruined cities, tilled fields,  terraces and irrigation works, showing that the Land once supported a  largo population.    History   tolls   us  that at one time In northern Africa,  an   army   could   marcli   for    days  through the forest.    Great cities of  antiquity once flourished    in    North  Africa, among those Palmyra, a complete city of great dimensions with  great aqueducts.     Today   they   are  covered with the sand of the Syrian  desert and tho sands of the Sahara.  There is evidence that at ono time tho  pralrlo regions of Southern Saskatchewan nnd Albeit'ta were covered with  trees. There aro indications from tlio  blowing of tlie sand thl.. year in the  dried out areas of Saskatchewan, that  drastic measures must be taken at  onco to wave the situation in this district.  At the lime of tho last drought In  Saskatchewan, the Royal Commission  om Better Farming, often, reviewing  the precipitation, records which extended back ovoi* a period of only  fitt-ty ycai-tii, ttui& "Piiihu^n tho *__umL  encouraging feature is the fact that  only during the years 1917-18-19 arc  there three very dry years in succession." Today after ten years only  have passed we have again three dry  years In succession and these very  much drier than in the past. Are  conditions such that the area in question If present methods are followed  will soon be unfit for grain growing?  Are there any indications that we are  entering in Saskatchewan upon one  of the dry cycles as recorded in  climatic records in the past?. Present conditions are satisfactory neither to the farmers in the dried out  area nor to the Government which  cannot continue to supply relief over  so large an area of the Province for  any indefinite period. The situation  must be faced. We cannot close our  eyes to it and go on putting in crops,  trusting to blind chance. It Is time  that our climatologist and meteorologists wore directing every energy to  solve the problem Instead of merely  acting as recorders of weather data.  They should be able to analyse the  data in sthe light of past experiences  and give our farmers some intelligent  ideas on actual conditions.  For more than five hundred years  there has been   no   major,  climatic  calamity such as has visited tho world  at different periods in tho past and  has been responsible for   tho    overthrow of ancient civilizations. During  that period  man has progressed in  many directions.    Ho haa taken advantage of this long quiet period to  accumulate    knowledge.

The  drought In Saskatchewan, constitutes  ono of the most serious problems fac- '  ing  the  Provincial arid tho  Federal  Governments.   As one who has given  a great deal of serious thought to the  questions assigned to tho Commission  on Conservation and Afforestation, I  havo come to the conclusion that tho  problem, can be solved, provided that  nil tho people In the  area affected  realize the seriousness of tho situation and take united notion In con*  /"ovmlty with tlio lamm of Na.tta_'������, THIS    JKUiY JJK W,    VJ&jWrVJS,    15.    tX,  CID  STOMACH  _rA__.

And  .Jean's eyes, all soft and luminous like  -every real woman's in the presence  -of love, signalled back steadily:  "Friend!"  "Claire!"    said    Nick.    And    Jean  thought that no name could have suit-  -~ ed her better.  She was the slenderest thing, with  -about her the" pliant, delicate grace of  a harebell. Ash-blonde hair, so fair  that in some lights it looked silver  rather than gold, framed the charming Greuze face. " Only It was not  quite a Greuze, Jean reflected.

Beirnfels is really my home.  I've never even seen Chamwood,"  smiled Jean. "But I should like to���������  some day, if you will ask me over."  "Oh, yes, certainly you must come,"  replied Lady Latimer a little breathlessly. But she seemed unaccountably flurried, as though ��������� Jean's suggestion in some way disquieted her.  "But of course, Chamwood���������now���������  isn't a bit like what it'must have been  when the Petersons had it. I think a  place changes with the people who  inhabit it, don't you? I mean, their  influence impresses itself on it. If  they are good and happy people, you  can feel it in the atmosphere of the  place, and if they are people with bad  and wicked thoughts, you feel that,  too. I know I do." And there was  no doubt in the mind of either of her  hearers that she was referring to the  last-named set of influences.  "But I think Chamwood must be  lovely, since it's your home now," said  Jean sincerely.  '<Oh. yes���������of course���������it is my home  now." Lady Latimer looked troubled.  "But other people live-���������have lived  there.- It's " changed hands several  times, hasn't it, Nick?"���������turning "to  him for. confirmation.  Nick was frowning. He, too, appeared troubled.  "Of course it's changed hands���������.and  heaps of times," he replied gruffly.  "But I should think your influence  would be enough to counteract that  of���������of everybody else. Look here,  chuck .discussing rotten, psychic influences, Claire, and come on the ice."  'No, I can't," she replied hastily,  -"rhaven't'myskates^heEe;'^ -  ' "That doesn't matter. We've a dozen pairs up at the house. One of them  is sure to fit you. I'll go and collect  a few."  He wheeled as though to crogs the  lake on his proposed errand, but  Claire Latimer laid her hand quickly  on his arm.  "No, no," she said. "I can't skate  this morning. I'm on my way home."  "Oh,Y change your mind!" begged  Jean, noticing with friendly amusement Nick's expression of discontent.  "No, really I can't." Claire's face  bad whitened and her big eyes sought  Nick's in a kind of pathetic appeal.  "Adrian is hot���������very "well today. My  husband," she added explanatorily to  Jean.  The latter was conscious of a sense  of shock. She had quite imagined  Lady Latimer to be a widow, and had  been mentally engaged in weaving the  most charming and happy-ever-after  of romances since the moment she  had seen that wonderful change come  over Nick's face. Probably her im-  .pression was due to the manner of his  first introduction of Claire's name,  "A friend of ours llvee there ��������� Lady  Latimer," without reference to any  husband lurking in the background.  She observed that Nick made no  further effort to persuade Claire to  remain, and after exchanging a few  commonplace remarks the latter continued her way back to Gharnwood.  It was so nearly lunch time that it  did not seem worth while resuming  tholr skating. Besides, with Clairo  Latimer's refusal to join them, tho  occupation seemed to havo loBt its  charm, and when Joan suggested a  return to the houso Nick assented  readily,  '���������She is very sweet���������your Lady  Latimer," remarked Jean, as thoy  walked back ovor tho frostily crisp  turf. "But sho looks rather sad. "And  sho Isn't tlie kind of person one associates with sadness. There's something so young and fresh about her;  she makes one think of spring flowers."

After that one breathless exclamation of horror Jean remained silent.  The swift picture conjured up before  her eyes by Nick's terse speech was  unspeakably revolting.  Years ago she had heard her father  describing the effect of the drug habit upon a friend of his own who' had  yielded to it. He had been telling her  mother about it* characteristically oblivious of the presence of a child of  eleven ia the room at the time^ and  some of Glyn Peterson's poignant, illuminating phrases, punctuated by  little, stricken murmurs of pity from  Jacqueline, nad impressed a painfully  accurate picture on the plastic mind  of childhood. Ever since then, drug-  mania had represented to Jean the  uttermost abyss.  And now, the Vision of that* slender,  gracious woman, lack's "pale golden  narcissus," tied for life to a mart who  must ultimately become that which  Glyn Peterson's friend had become,.  filled her with compassionate dismay.  It was easy enough, now, to comprehend "Claire Latimer's curious lack  of warmth when Jean expressed the  hope that she might go over to Chamwood some day. It sprang from the  nervous shrinking of a woman at the  prospect of being driven to unveil before fresh eyes the secret misery and  degradation of her life.  Jean was still silent as she and  Nick -re-entered the hall at Staple, it  was empty, and as, by common consent, they instinctively drew towards  the fire Nick pulled forward one off  the big easy-chairs for her. Then  he stood gloomily staring down into  the leaping flames, much, as Tormarin  had stood the previous evening.  Intuitively she knew that he wanted to give her his confidence.  "Tell rae about it, Nick," she said  quietly.  "May I?" The words jerked out  like a sigh of relief, n  He dropped into a chair beside her.  "There isn't much to tell you. Only,  I'd like you to know���������to bo a pal to  her, if you can, Jean:" Ho paused,  then went on quickly: "They married  her to him when she was hardly mare  than a child���������barely seventeen. She's  only nineteen now. Sir Adrian. Is  practically a millionaire, and Claire's  father and mother were in low water  ���������trying to cut a dash, in society on  nothing a year. So���������they sold Claire.  Sir Adrian paid their debts and  agreed to make them a handsome allowance. And they let her gfn to him,  knowing, then, that ho .had already  begun to take drugs."  "How could they?" burst from  Jean hi a strangled whisper.  Nick nodded. His eyes, meeting  hors, had lost their gay good humour  and wero dull and lack-lustre.

The maintenance -^of its usual  strong position and ready ability  to meet the rapidly changing trade  conditions are among the outstanding features off the annual report of  The Royal Bank of Canada. The  statement, which is for the fiscal  year to November 30th, is now  going forward to shareholders. It  will toe immediately accepted as  further striking proof off the successful manner in which Canadian banks  are dealing with the problems  brought about by depressed business  conditions. - i-      .  The general statement of assets  and liabilities shows total assets in  excess of $825,000,000, a reduction  off only about 7% as compared with  the 'amount" reported at the. end of  the previous year. In the light of  lower commodity prices and general  slackening of activity, the maintenance of total assets at such a high  level should be regarded as a re-  mar kafoly good showing. Isi keeping  with its policy the Bank's liquid  position, as usual, is a strong one,  liquid assets totalling $348,BS0v55i,  or over 48% of liabilities to the  public.      The      principal      accounts  included among them are cash items  of $150,286,891; .Dominion and  Provincial Government securities of  385,473,058 and Canadian Municipal and British foreign and colonial  public securities of $24,641,816.  Call loans total $76,293,380 and  naturally represent a substantial  reduction for the year, those in  Canada being  down  $18,847,955,    or \ next fiscal year.  33%,      and      those      abroad      over  $7,000,000.  The ' generally lessened business  activity is further reflected in commercial loans, which are. $419,345.-  043, as compared with $444,815,877  a year ago. Letters of Credit also "  shaw a - reduction���������nearly' ������10^000,-  000���������obviously due to curtailed  international trade.  Total deposits stand at 5647,303,-  075 as. against $695,589,060 at the  end of the 1930 year. The decline,  as is well known, has been principally in deposits elsewhere than ia  Canada, . those in the Dominion  being down only. $7,160,200, and  now amount'"-.-to $479,165,064, aa  against $486,325,264-  Satisfactory Profits  The many shareholders of the  Bank -will be particularly interested  in the Profit and Loss account and  the showing made should be regarded as very satisfactory. Profits  for the year, amounted to $5,448,327,  and these added ..to the amoua^t  brought forward from the preceding  year brought the total available for  distribution up to $3,555,105. -fay-  meait of the usual 12% diyLdend  absorbed $4,200,000; a contribution  of $200,000 was made to Officers'  Pension Fund; the. usual amount  of $400,000 was appropriated for  Bank premises and $600,000 was set  aside for Dominion Government  taxes. After meeting all these  charges the substantial amount of  $4,155,105 was carried forward to  credit -of  Profit  and   Loss  into   the  "But understand this, too,"���������and  the sudden sternness that gripped his  speech, reminded her sharply off Ms  brother���������"we recognize that that is  all there can ever be between: us.

It seems unjust that we should  pass our burdens onto the  shoulders of others who are  wholly innocent.  It is the interest on money that  hurts the prosperity of a country  for there is more money taken1  out of circulation than was put  in, draining: the country of its  money, till the very life of its  citizens are at stake, and is the  sole cause of this depression.  In order for the government to  pay the* interest back to the  money Senders they must tax the  people to an excess. I will try to  outline how this taxation is about  to work out.

The Vanishing Dollar  Editor Review: -  Sir,���������Do we realize the great  financial situation of today?  How it is about to bring disaster  to the whole of the human, race!  through indebtedness. It is  a known fact that no individual  business or government can exist  on debt, and surely that is much  the state of affairs existing the  world over, and the debts are increasing at an enormous rate  daily.  The U.S.A., supposed to be  one of the richest countries of the  world, in the year 1929 the interest    on     her    debts     alone  they will raise the lax  other article, driving it, too, out  of existence, and so it will continue on down as one article  passes out of existance the greater  will be the tax on those who are  left.  I doubt if there is a dollar in  circulation today but what someone is paying interest for the  privilege of it being there. The  Canadian government is making  every effort to put money in circulation by borrowing with  interest from the money lenders.  The new loan the government has  secured will mean giving the!  public a dollar with one hand and  taking back with the other hand.  Is there any chance for a return of prosperity in such a  measure? It doesn't seem right  that the government, to whom  the money rightfully belongs,  should be forced to go begging it  and paying interest thereon to  keep it in circulation for no other  place is it of value.  Whilst the money lenders with  their vaults full of the government money say you must' not  touch until interest is paid thereon. Let us consider what  . happens to money the govern-  jment has so faithfully endeavored  Let's  take  Mr. name, along with the remedy  ror the vanishing dollar will  appear in an early issue.  m^m        ^^^^A*9 *B"^g"^g^^   ^SB^S   ^S ^^*^m*m^mmr   ^^^f^9 m\^mtB    ________ ^~^^P   ESI i Ba    ^9 'V^^^^V mg      *3l^������j*t  The New tt ear is here.

The borrower  Dominion has made has indebted  the people of Canada over a  million dollars a day. The interest alone will amount to about  ten million yearly. It's quite  reasonable to suppose that the  principal will find Ets way back to  the government through taxation and other revenues. Where,  may I ask, is the ten million  dollars coming from to pay the  interest? For it will mean taking out of circulation more money  .'!h_in what was pub inv leaving the  country more destitute than it  was before. In order for the  government to pay back the  money she has borrowed from the  money lenders it will be necessary  to impose an ena_*maus tax on the  public, whicb will mean a  scarcity of money among the  people, which wilt result in tho  loss of property, forfeiture of  their homes and places of  buflinesB.  Owing to the lack of money m  the ho mew to buy food with wiM  cauue    undernourished    children  pays a debt and it is again put  in the-bank on an account to be  loaned again. It is quite reasonable to believe that within a year  it could be loaned fifty.times, and  the interest at the rate of seven  per cent, would amount to $850  on this $100. Is it any wonder  that the government cannot keep  money in circulation, and that  this heinous monster, called  Depression is walking the world  today.  The gold money has long since  passed into the hands of the  money exchanges, where they can  cherish it to their hearts, no more  to let it wander back into circulation. They havo doped the  people into believing that paper  money \s just as'good us gold,  It just means this much, that we  no longer use the money of our  country, but that of the banks,  for is it not marked on the bills  .the name of the bank to which" tt  belongs.

"It is to be regretted, however,  that some real headway has not  been made toward reclaiming this  rich area, and to the editor of  this paper, who had the opportunity of viewing these lands recently, it appears all the more regrettable that something has not  been accomplished along practical  lines.  "It will require much capital to  reclaim this large aae'a of several  thousand acres, and it oecured to  us that the only solution of the  question would be? for the Wast  Kootenay Power and Light Company, through Mr. Lome A.

In the month of February, 1932, there will be convened a great conference of all nations to deliberate upon the problem of how to bring about  world disarmament. It will be one of the most representative conferences  ever held, while its decisions will be of the most momentous character,  fraught with tremendous good or ill for all peoples.  A cynic may be inclined to inquire as to the necessity for a disarmament conference in view of the fact that in 1914-1918 a great war was  fought' with the declared object of ending all further war. The nations  which, avowed this to be their object won that war. Having won, why the  continued necessity for huge armaments; why the necessity for a solemn  conclave of the nations to endeavour to "bring about disarmament?  The truth is: War will never be ended by war. The Great War 1914-  1918 was not the first one to be fought to prevent future war. We read in  the works of Mr. James Branch Cabell, an erudite student of the history  and customs of the South of France, of how the Due de Puysange in the  year 1697 addressed his ten-year-old son in these words:  "Now that we have almost reached the eighteenth century, and all the  nations have signed that treaty of Ryswick to prevent there ever being  any more wars, and people are riding about peaceably in sedan chairs,, and  ar������ living in America," etc., etc.  Yet how many wars have been fought since 1697 although even then  there was & treaty signed by "all" nations to prevent war?  Following the Great War 1914-1918, the nations set up a League of  Nations having as its main purpose the prevention of war. Notwithstanding  that two of the greatest nations in the world refused to become members  of the League, it has accomplished much, but not enough. Then followed  the treaty of Locarno, the Washington conference which achieved a measure  of limitation of naval armaments,, and finally the Kellogg Peace Pact, signed  by practically every nation, declaring war an outlaw and solemnly pledging  themselves, eaeh. to the others, never to resort to war as an instrument of  national policy against any other nation.  And yet, the nations continue to be armed camps. The so-called peacetime armies of today out-number those maintained prior to 1914. War  instruments and machines of destruction not only possess the land and sail  the seas, but they dive under the seas and fly over the land. In a machine-  age, armies, navies and air armadas have become highly mechanized, holding in leash powers of destruction ana horrors of suffering previously unsurpassed in man's imagination.  At a time when millions of men are out of productive employment,  when want and suffering stalks through hundreds of thousands of homes,  when practically every nation is plunging deeper and deeper into debt,  billions of dollars are being spent annually to increase and strengthen these  huge war machines.

Soviet Russia, which claims it is setting an example to the whole world  in the development of a new order, a better way in which mankind should  live, is  one  of  the  worst, offenders, with  its  government  compelling the  people to learn all the arts of war hand in hand with the arts of peace. The  TJnited States, far removed and immune from the century old suspicions,  jealousies and hatreds of Europe, and safe from attack, leads the van in  demanding a huge navy and in the maintenance of a large standing army.

War will not end war; rather each war but precipitates  another. Disarmament alone will prevent war; it is the sole preventive  measure, and in this case prevention alone will provide the cure. Give a boy  a rifle and he will not be happy or content until he uses it. Give a nation  a huge army, a powerful navy, airships and submarines, and as sure as  night follows the day, it will, sooner or later, make use of them.  The hopes, the prayers, every ounce of influence possessed by each and  every individual should be directed to making the forthcoming confrence a  success, wholly and completely so. Then, indeed, will a new day dawn for  all nations and peoples.
