From time to time  it shows up glaring wrongs in the handling of  public affairs and they, are righted. It is a fine  ���������������������������thing to have a periodical so outspoken and so  jusl in ils criticism of public men and policy.  'This is lhc way it handles the question of  wasted horsepower in thc Province of Ontario.  Some of ils remarks would apply equally well  here in  the Province of Brilish  Columbia:  "There is a serious powcr shortage in Ontario.  Factories arc closed. Workers arc idle. New  developments arc held up. Sufferers arc afraid  lo complain. There is absolutely no hope for  improvement for a long lime���������������������������things will only  become morc serious.

Even in Australia, which was about  us remote from the theatre oi hostilities as any part of the world,' all the  government railways have sufiered  severely from the effects of the war  and have had to make advances ia  tbeir rates.  The railways of Great-Britain were  placed under government control at  the beginning of the���������������������������war and are still  being thus operated. During the war  the passenger rates were advanced  50 per com, while the freight rales  were not advanced at all, and because the increases in expenses  greatly exceeded the increases in  rates the government incurred a  large deficit. To reduce or wipe out  this deficit advances in the freight  rates of.the British railways ranging from 25 to 100 per cent were  made effective on January'.15, 1920,  and extra charges were added to  rates which cover the collection and  delivery ot freight at stations as well  as its transporlaii-OTi.
