Work on1  the creation of an up-to-date, fully equipped poj*t has commenced. The con-  linaaoaas aerial survey of the straits now in progress has. already brought the  information, surprising to many doubting Thomases, .that both Bay and  Straits have remained free from ice for a much longer period than was  roianerly believed to he the case. .  Opponents of the r.ay project always contended that navigation would  he so perilotas, and, as a consequence, insurance* rates on boats and cargoes so  high as to he prohibitive, that no shipping company would, undertake to  vstubltsh a service on such a route. But already a responsible steamship  company has opened negotiations with the Government for the establishment  nl' a line of vessels operating in and out of Churchill, while insurance  authorities have announced that there is no reason why the rates of insurance to' bo charged should be unduly high or a deterrent to the success of the j  route. {  As if these things wero not    in    themselves    suHlclent.    to    justify    the j . talcing  .-���������xpetidlture on the road to the Bay, there comes official announcement of the i winiaui{..

The stomach needs.help at all  i times, but a study of the process of  digestion will show that purgatives,  as commonly taken, are seldom necessary imd often harmful.  To safeguard your digestion the  diet must be controlled. Over-eating  is always harmful, but one must assimilate enough food to supply the  needs of the blood. Remember, the  blood has* to-carry nourishment to all  parts-of the body and find .fuel for its  energy. Hence when the blood becomes -weak and fail s to dc its work,  indigestion arises.',Therefore the sure  remedy for indigesfiou is to build: up  the blood.

FRIDAY. DEC.   8  Are We Downhearted? Nol  The Review cannot understand  why ftHv dis ppointment is manifest with the recent decision of the  International Joiut Wa erways  Commission in the application of  Crestoa Reclamation Company,  Limited, for a permit to proceed  with the dyking of the company  lands ota Kootenay Flats.  To us it would seem that too  much importance is being attached  xo the request of tlae secretary of  state at Washington for a year's  delay in order that bis department  may have ample time to study the  effects of the proposed works on  present and prospective developments across the line.  While it is true that a delay of  twelve months has been asked for,  it must not be assumed that any  such request is to have serious consideration.  The mere fact that the  commission   adjourned   without  setting a  date for re assembling would   indicate  they  had no such thought in  mind, and to those who heard their  official statements prior to consent  ing; to adjoisn-msent it is abundant  ly clear that the American commissioners in particular, as well as the  Canadians, are thoroughly con vine  ed that on the evidence  submitted  there  ie  no   reason   whatever   for  delaying decision and that- there is  no  intention   on   the   part  of   the  commissioners to give the secretary  of   state   more   than   a  reasonable  length of time to argue   his   ob^eo-1 inS  tions���������if it is found, after the   offi  to the assistance of the Company  at that time, but no positive  guarantee in this connection can be  given. This information is submitted at this time so there can be no  iBaisaisderatatsdirBg ss to tho status  of those who signed tap a year ago  and who may or may not wish to  carry out their previous good in  tentions.

Imperial Bank's  Splendid Report  General Manager Reviews Bank  Year at Annual Meeting���������  Profits up $120,000.00  The annuai statements of o������r  chartered Banks may be accepted as a  true index of business conditions  v-hach have prevailed in the coaintry  over (the previous IS -months. "We  have learned that Canadian bankers  in tbeir annual addresses to the  shareholders generally paint a fairly  dependable picture of the coanang year  and so give those interested in business enterprises a. course that can,  ���������with judgment, be safely followed.  Tho address of Sir James   Wood8*  Vice President of the   Imperial   Bank  of Canada, at tlie 53rd   Annual  Meeting   of   shareholders   was    noted    an  I several particulars.

Perhaps   the  best assurance the  community can have that the project   will   be proceeded with at no  late date is furnished by eharehold  ers  of  the   Reclamation Company  who' at   the   annual   meeting  on  Monday night elected the old board  of directors and  subsoribed   generously to a new issue of stock whioh  will   give    the    management    the  funds needed to  successfully   complete a work which has  developed  during the past twelve months to a  point where the date for  throwing  up   the  ft.-3t  yard   of dyko  might  have been announced had   not  the  U.S. secretary  of state   come forward with his last minute   request  for delay.

It was evident  throughout that Sir James Tins given  careful study to the course of Canada's  development during the isitt twelve or  fifteen years, and has every confidence  in the gieater development which will  take place within the next-.* twelve  years.  The address contnined r-uich a  volume of interesting and informative  material that it shoaild be carefully  read by every business man within  Canada. Indeed, its circaalataoai in si  wider Held would be of the greatest  benefit to the country.  Following the vice-president, the  general manager. Mr. A. E. Phipps,  reviewed the bank's statements which,  it is of moment to say, as the best  statement in the bank's history.'  During the year, the total assets  grew frona, in round figures $132,000  to $189,000; deposits from $100,000,000  to 8109,000,000; liquid assets from  $09,000,000 to over $70,000,000 and pro.  fits from $1,2(55.000 to $1,383,000.  Referring to the liquidity of the  bank's position, Mr. Phipps said:  '���������Turning to the asset side of the  statement during the year a system  waa put into effect whereby the statements for all clearing houses are made  daily in one omoaint in Montreal.  Thia will probably enable tho bunks  as a whole to carry leas of the reserves  in actual cash in tbe future, but up to  the present we have amide httle  change in our policy.

Althoaagh the acreage so-wsi  fjis year-was '40,418,897 acres, as against  0^48,013 in 1926, the yield per acre was  .reater,  wheat averaging  19.03   bushels  ?>er acre in 1927, against 17.8 baishels ha  .926;  oats, 342, sgaiaast 30.1; and rye,  ������.6, against 16.1 in 1926.

Trade Statuses  This year the Gcverrarcenft of Canada  provided $100,000 to cover the cost of a  trade study of the British market.  This  seems to be very timely, for, while Britain is otar best customs, the demand for  '���������-our products from year to year has been  very erratic   In 1920 we supplied 27 per  cent, of the bracon imported by Britain,  as against It per cent, in 1926.   Sicoilarly,  our share in the egg market fell from 11.4  per-cent, of British imports in 1920 to .7  per cent, an 1926;  In 1914 we supplied 48  per cent..of the cheese, in 1920 41 per  cent., and in 1926 3S per cent.   If the  studies undertaken show how to hold our,  markets and gradually increase our share,  tlae money-will have been well spent. Exports of Canadian tobacco to Britain have  increased 700 per cent, during the last four  years as a result of the preferential-trade  agreement.   This is reflected In the. rapid  1  extension of tobacco farming in Western  1 Ontario.     **  Fuel and Water Power  In Central Canada, where most of our  factories fare located, -we have no coal  fields.. For some. years the Governments |  of Canada; have given serious attention to  the possibility of making the coal of Nova  Scotia and Alberta available for the parts  of Ontario and Quebec which arti. now  dependent on imported coal.1 The advantage to Canadian finance, to the coalmining Industry and to the railways of  Canada, of success ira this undertaking,  would b* so great that the project should  be very fully colored.    Canada has a  most encouraging record, with a development of 4,290,000 horsepower, -as compared wtth 12,000,000 horsepower in the  United States, which has more than twelve  Uancs our population.    The   Falls and  Rapids which baffled our forefathers by  obstructing free traffic on the waters, contain a wealth of which   they   did not  dream.   9  Our Mineral Wealth  In 1926 the production of the Canadian  mines was valued at over $240,000,000, jas  compared with $86,000,000 in 1907, and  $226,000,000 in 192J>., Though the Increased value of 1926 over 1925 is only  about * per cent., the Increase In the  quantity produced Is much greater.. This  is due to the lower average prices prevailing in. 1926 for silver, copper, lead and  ruic.  With the exploitation of the established  The total assets approximate $139,000,-  000, the growth being some $7,000,000, or  at the rate of* over $500,000 a month. The  profits, which arc shown at $!,33Sr381 -58,  are also the highest that have ever been  shown by the bank, and as tasaial, have-  been computed rafter writing off anything  of a bad or douhtf aai nature, and making  JLiie jl\jl-p3.  *>  full provision for all contingencies of  every sort and kind. Out of the profits  have been provided the usual dividends  of 12 per cent, and a bonus at the Tate of  I per cent: the tasaial contributions to  Officers' Guarantee and Pension Funds  and also provision for Dominion Govern- .  ment taxes (including a reserve for the  current year's income tax), $160,000, and  $250,000 has been written off Bank Premises Account. After these deductions we ���������  are able to carry forward $1,272,929.81, a  sum slightly in excess of the balance  brought forward from the 1926 accoaant.  Deposits Hig-h Record ���������  Last year we reported our deposits in  excess of $100^000^000 for the first time.  ! This year they are $109,014,919, an u������-  crease of roaaghly $8300,000 for the year,  iiqaaiai Peatiss  Tairning to the a^et side of the statement, Bonainion notes and foreign cur-  sendesron hand amount to neasly $11^75,  531.   Add to this the deposit in the goad  central reserves, cbecpies on other banks,  balances due by other banks in Canada,  the total cash amounts to upwards   of  ^SflOQfiOO, which equals 22.92 per cent.  of the bank's liabilities to ttae public.

Loans  to   Provincial  Goverawnents  and  the Mtmidpalitiss, and so on- all of which"  can be really classed as immediately liquid  investments, amount   to $43,000,000,  an  increase of $6,000,000 for the year, and  when added to the cash on hand, bring  out a total of liquids of $76,487,604, eqaia!  to 62.18 per cent,   of   liabilities to the  public. ���������   . ���������'  Current Loans .  The Current Loans,, at slightly over  $55,000,000, are practically amchanged  from last year. We would like to see this  department of our business a little larger,  but satisfactory additions to the Current  Loans are hard to obtain, the growth over  tbe whole of Canada for the year ended  September being only 8 per cent.  Our own Call Loans in Canada showed  an expansion of $4,500,000 during the  year, which is about in keeping awith the  expansions shown by other Banks, according to the Governments Returns. These  loans are well selected and passed upon  by the Board of xnirectots as well as the  management, and up to the present tune  have not occasioned the Bank the loss of  a single dollar, but.naturally they are not  as remunerative as commercial loans.  The Bank's Premises  *jrhis year $250,000 has been written  off, which amount practically offsets our  expenditures on premises during thp ye-ar.  Branches of the Bank have been opened  or arranged at Oakwood Avenue and Rogers Road, Sitvertbom Avenue and Rogers  Road, Bloor and Durie Streets, all in the  City of Toronto. At Noranda and Dol-  beau, in the Trovincc of Quebec; at Gold  Pines, in Ontario, and at Mayerthorpe  and Eckville In the Province of Alberta.  One branch at Sparta, Ont.,. has been  closed. We now have 187 branches.  Tho Stall  The staff consists of 1,304 officers. The  growth of the Bank necessitates a constantly plowing number of employees.

According to General Sutton, 99 per  cent. of the people of China were  hopelessly poverty stricken. The urgent ^necessity of getting- something  to eat Was the main consideration of  the bulk of the pqptalation.  General Sutton thought the main  source of trouble in China as It affected Great Britain wasf-in Britain's  lack of a strong policy. To' a great  degree the fact that pi*actically the  whole of Southern .. China was now  pure Bolshevik came as a result of  this policy, he declared.  Explanations and Ccimtticarts   ?  I, King Plezekiah Appeals/ To  Isaiah To Pr-ay To Jehovah For Deltv-  er.aaace Pr-oan  Sennacherib, verses 1-4.  II. Tho Prophet's AnBWer, verses  5-7.-���������"Thus shall ye say to youiVnias-  ter," Isaiah made answer to the anes-  seiagers from King Hezekiali, "Thus  saith Jehovah, Be aiot afraid of the  words that thou hast hoard-,;,where--  with the servants oi' the Kiaig of  Assyria have blasphemed me." Read  the words in the preceding Chapter of  Isaiah. "Behold," continued. Isaiah, "I  will put a spirit iaa him, and he $hall  hear tidings, and shall retain unto his  own hind, and I-will cause him to fail  there by the sword in Ids o'wn land."  The '"spirit"' was that of alarm. What  the "tidings" were is uncertain. To  quote G. W. Blade: "If chapters' 36  and 37 are a unity, 'tidings' must refer  to the aiews of the appa*oach of Tirha-  kah, verse 9. If verses .1-7 here are  independent of verses 'S-36, the rumor  probably relateis to the tidings from  hoane of a rebellion'in Babylon,'where,  after expelling Meroda-ch'-baiadan in  703, he had set up a vassal king, wlio  shortly afterwards revolted,, and  against whom he directed a campaign  in 700. In the combination of the narratives mention of the fulfillment of  the prediction about the rumor may  have been lost; but the return, of Sennacherib to his own land is described  in verses 37, 38, which form the se-  QUel of this account."  "Isaiah's fervid faith in Zioai's ������n-  violableness does not blind him to the  openness of Judah's northern entrance; It is in one of his passages of  warmest exultation about Zion (10.32)  that he describes .the easy advance of  the Assyrians to her walls. He and  other prophets frequently recognized  how swiftly the military powers .will  overrun Judah; and when they except  Jerusalem from tlae conseguences, it is  not because of her national strength,  but because of their faith In the direct  intervention of God Himself. So at last  it happened. In the great-crisis of her  history, the invasion by Sennacherib,  Judah was saved.as.Engl^nd was saved  from the Armada, neither by the  strength of her bulwarks, for they  had been burst, nor by the valor of  her men, for the heart had gone ft'om  them, but because, apart 'from''Human  help, God jbliniself crushed her insolent foes in the moment of their triumph."���������George Adam Smith.  it&i3anB������C  ' Acts like d flash-  Question Of Naval  Limitation Shelved  .

Former Frea*ac!h Delegate Says 1S35  Will Be Crucial Year  The United States will not be on the  "same side as Great Britain in another  European war, Henri de Jouvenel,  former French delegate to the League  of Nations, predicted, in a letter read  at the International War Daiiger Conference at London.  M. de Jouvenel, who recently resigned his League post as a protest  against tho policies pursued at Geneva, was to have addressed tho conference, but sent a message which was  read instead.  Tlae Fronch statesman pointed to  tho holding tap of tho recent naval  confci'enco  and  said:  "Naval rivalry brings in its train  concurrently with the growth of land  armnmeuts., rivalry of great states  which are potential foes."

Scheme Is  Proving Success  Socialistic   Rule   Has   Passed   Experimental  Stage  Ira  Vienaaa  The city of Vienna has just enterell  upon its ..tenth > vear? under So-^I'ilist  rule. It is the only great city ol Suil-  lions of inhabitants which has been  governed by a purely Socialist majority for so long a time-���������the only place  where Sociatlist experiments liave  had a chance to be conducted upon so  grandiose a scale and thereby develop  beyond the expeiimental stage into  what, from certain definite points of,  view/must bo regarded as success.  .-Probably no city outside of Russia  has had more hostile criticism than  Vienna during the past decade. It has  been denounced as Bolshevist; as a  city being ruined by its rulers. Yet  today students of municipal govei*n-  ment come from all parts of the world  to the Vienna town hall admittedly to  learn. :l?    ���������-���������-??  The first striking fact is that Red  -Vienna is as far removed from Red  Russia as the poles. In Viennai in  fact, nothing Is forbidden in tho social order, provided one is able to pay.  : It all depends upon that. On the other  hand, the doctrine of Kary Seita is  definite���������minienum happiness is d������ue  to every one and for that every one  shall pay. Therefore, one may rotain  40 servants if lie deems that number  necessary���������and pay a tax sufficient to  maintain an entire -ward in the; children's hospital for a year. But upon  the theory that human service is  necessary,. servant No. 1 is not cou-  sidei-ed.a taxable luxuary.

She carried a bag of laundry���������she and the teacher traded work  to their mutual advantage.  As Helani looked at the lumber a  sudden impulse came ,. to her. She  wanted to build a house-*���������any sort of  a little place that would* be her own.  Wasn't it provoking being a girl and  not able to hit out for yourself���������-never  able to step out and do big things, aaid  here she was, working all day long for  twenty-five dollars a month, while the  poorest man in the mines had four  dollars -aday aatd only worked eight  li purs'..'  It sure Was the, limit!  Aaxd she would just love to build  horselt a house. She would be content  to stay in Eagle Minos if sho had her  own house. Then, sho put tho thought  a-fl'ay, summoning Aunt J..IU again to'  hea* aid. A house meant an anchor, and  she wanted to ho free, always frco.  More English and more money* 'and  then sho would go to tho city, learn  stenography, work Iai an oillco, wear  swell -saalts and have a wrist watch.  Her plans 'seemed to end there In uncertainty. Hut hero at. her feet lay the  material for a house, and it didn'Udo  ;uay harm, to pat the lumber!  Ono sail try Sunday morning just before daybreak Helmi. was awakonod  by a sh'iddorlng crash of thunder that  asooanod to burrow undor tho fooardhtg-  housoi then burst upward with a terii-  fh*. ura.sh like iho blaullaa'^ on tlio  mlnoB. Sho ran to tho window, A dull  Wuo. light was over every thing, and  groat black clouds Iat contmotloai. wero  advancing In iho westovax s.ky. Sho  watchud ihojn, faaclnatod, as thoy billowed, surged and twisted with aav inward, boiling motion. Then she thought  of tiae lumber on thuiItnoU���������it would  get wet and loee Its lovely iiutlny  s'h'oon. ^laeai sho looked uho saw n  man. was-working thoro, sawing a  board, as unconsciously aaa If tho mm  were shining.

The sky seemed,to split wide open  above her head as she ran; the heavens were lashed with knotted cords of  flame swung hy invisible giant hands.  But Helmi ran on. She must get to  this man and bring him in. She  thought of Peter Saarl, all blackened  and burned beside his plough. She  called iq J[um��������� above, the storm, and lie  inust have heard for he turned toward  her, smiling. v Then came ay flash that  blinded hea: and turned the world into  blackest night. Soanething fell into  her arms.  When Helmi opened her eyes a  strange prickly sensation was in her  arms and feet,..She was sitting on the  pile" of lumber, holding someone in  her arms, someone with face ghastly  in the wan light, and whose eyes were  closed. A cry broke from Helmi's lips.  "Jack Doran!" she called; "Oh, Jack  Doran, is it you?'*  She carried him into the house, his  weight seeming nothing to her In her  excitement. Her one Impulse was to  get him to shelter before the.storm  broke. Big drops fell on his face as  she hurried along, and instin.etively  slaeyleaned furthea' over hian to shelter him.yThere W3ty.no. lounge or bed  dbwnstalrs, no place where she could  lay him,. To,her o\yn room she brought  him and Jlaid him -on?" her bed. He  moaned'wben' she-Jyid him down. Then  she ran to alarm the house. The rain  was -coaning down now in torrents,  racing in a mad flood* down the windows, filling the house with a steady,  deafening,roar, through which peals  of thunder came bursting like cannon..'  Mrs. McMann ploughed steamily up  the stairs. "He ain't dead," sho yaid,  "nor nothing near it, but he's been  stunned. You see there ain't- a,mark  on him, but ho sure ha.d a na.sty wallop. It was lucky for. him you saw him  fall."  Helmi did not explain.  ..."He'd have been drowned to.death  like as not if he had been left;lying  there. GqsIi! alai't that ono awful rain.  Wo can't send for the doctor just now,  that's sure. Anyway, I don't -think  there's anything to do Cor Jacjc-fhut  just let*him lie. He's breathjn''-all  right* sand his color is comiu' back."  Helmi watched Jack's palo face anxiously. Ills cheeks were beginning to  loso thoir ghastly pallor, sind lain lips  were reddening. Sho noted admiringly  iho curly hair ^waved back from the  high whlto forehand, the gracefully  sirchod eyebrows, sand the, akin of itho  neck so wuoolU and white.
