He  is   advised  by  the  board  of  directors  that  both  extensions will be made at once provided the company is given the financial backing of the people of the districts to be" served.    The stock of the  Okanagan Telephone Company is sold  at  par  and  carries  interest  in  semiannual dividends at the rate, of S per 0  cent per annum.    The  investment is  as safe as Victory Bonds and the rate  of interest .three per cent .higher.

Q  This withdrawal was followed by  that of Mr. Copeland who told the  convention that he preferred tb finish  his term as president of the United  Farmers and felt that he was in a  ^yosition^to^do^as^much^in^the^inter^-  est of the organization as its president as by representing the organization at Victoria.  This left Mr. Laidman and Mr. Makovski in the running. Both nominees were called upon tb address the  convention-and spoke clearly on the  issues upon which they deemed legislation was necessary for the betterment of the .farming industry and tho  country in general.  Mr.   Laidman   made     it    especially  clear  that  he  was  not  out  for  class  legislation but' if nominated aud elected would ,go to Victoria as a Farmer's  candidate  to  work  in.the  interest of  tho   basic   industry   of   tho   province.  He believed  in  the motto that every  farmer  should   do  his   best   for  himself and his community in the knowledge   that  by  so   doing  he  can   best  .serve  all.    The  farming industry,  he  believed,   must   stand   upon   its   own  feet,  and  farmers   must  be  prepared  to   go   after  what  they  want  and   if  they   want   a  good   thing  they   must  make  up  their  minds  to  pay  for  it.  He was particularly strong in his denunciation  of  the   existing  road   policy, and thougiht all road work should  be taken out of politics and placed in  the hands of a permanent road commission   which   would   inaugurate   a  policy dictated by the country's needs  experimental -farm  each person.     - . ,  The ladies of the W.

Ft is an old saying thai when politicians arc at  a loss to know what to go to thc people with they  always can fall back upon the tariff issue. Perhaps thcrc is more "bull" peddled under the  guise of.tariff argument, pro and con, than upon  any othcr subject. "It is such an easy thing to  use as a smoke screen.  Just now, however, it is not so easy to fool thc  people by tariff talk. And- it would seem, from  oflicial figures showing Canadian imports and  (-���������������������������>��������������������������� ports from and lo the United States, that there  is good reason for the growing demand for a  revision of the tariff laws, so as to permit easier  trading with American markets by Canadian  producers. For it must bc recognized that any  penalty put upon the free course of business between two countries works both ways.  Canadian imports from thc United States in  the lasl twelve mouths exceeded by $400,000,000.  the exports to that country. We bought goods  from onr neighbors to the cost, of $9t9,000,000,  and Ihev bought Canadian goods to thc cost of  $513,000,000. Thc most unpleasant feature of  this halaii.ee is thc forced presenl of about -$40,  000.000 we have*'made to the United States in;  the vaie of exchange. While it is not pleasant to  contemplate this huge trade balance against us  wc should be prepared to admit tliat it is entirely  our own fault.  market for the refined product was advancing  The beard fixed a maximum selling price, allowing a very small profit over the actual cost of  manufacture.  "The refineries, following their ordinary business methods,", the Premier continued, "had  bought well ahead months before in a cheap  market for later delivery. Then followed great  increases in prices in the world's markets. "The  refiners then wished to make their sales on a  replacement basis, that is to calculate their costs  and profits from a basis of whal it would cost  them to buy in thc. risen -market. This the Board  of Commerce would not allow them to do ancl  the result was that Canadian consumers got their  sugar often six cents cheaper than prices in thc  United Slates. Thus in the aggregate Canadian  consumers saved from $20,000,000 to $30,000,-  000."    The speaker continued:  "The refiners asked how thcy were going to  operate when their supplies of sugar purchased  at a low rate had bcen exhausted and thcy had  to buy at an increased price. Thej' stood to lose  so heavily as to face the possibility of failure.  The board lold them that it was hoped to average it down.  "Th������������������.n sugar started to drop in United States,  and the refiners declared that thcy were losing  $3,600,000 with every drop of one cent in the  price made h~rc. They came to thc board ancl  said, "We ask you to heln us now by regulating  the imports of sugar. Tf you had left us alone  everything would have been all right."  "I told them," said, the JPremi^r. "we have not  the authority of Parliament and even if w1 had  1 am not sure I could see my wav to do it."  Continuing, hc said the Board of Commerce  had virtually set an embargo on importation of  sugar, in the order of a fortnight ago. Immediately he heard of it he called thc cabinet; thcy  consulted, the department of justice- and before  Mackenzie KI.no had made a single speech so far  as the speaker knew���������������������������the government had suspended the order.  Thc refiners were given thc nrivilege of ap-  ipealing, and thev presented tVHr case. The.- did  not dwell on the business clami.���������������������������or lhe contention that they were entitled to the protection by  an alleged quid- pro quo with the board and the  government, but made their appeal on thc moral  sens". The result, however, was thai the order  of thc Board of Commerce was dismissed ancl  was actually nev^r in effect at all.  "What was the consequence?

"The power of organization will have, added  revelation in the fact that we will hold tlie very  cream of thc farm community to ourselves because we will have for them the very task which  will call out their talents and for lack of which  thev have becn going to other lines of work."

Tn his address at Vancouver last week Premier  Meighen was asked to explain the action of thc  Board of Commerce in passing the sugar order.  "We aue accused of being autocratic, because  of a sugar order of thc Board of Commerce,"  commented the Premier, when interrupted by  an uproar above which could be heard a voice,  "Co on. toll us about lhat."  -The Premier took a step forward. His eyes  Hashed and his jaw. squared. "Let no one worry,  there is not a question that I am afraid to'discuss." he said; "I will tell you all about the sugar  order."

In doing this thc board investigated the price of  The Farmers* platform  Almost every daily paper in Canada and most  of our public men persist in referring to the  agrarian fiscal demands as free-trade propaganda, says the Farm and P������������������ancli Review. ' One  becomes, tired of pointing out that tlicy are nothing of the sort. President Wood's statement to  the Tariff Commission, when, in answer to a  epicstion by the chairman, he clearly stated that  tlic^farmcr_s___o_f_.Alberta, have no objection \yhat-  ever to ail}' measure of* reasonable protection fo  a Canadian industry, provided it could honestly  be shown that such industry was in need thereof.  The farmer recognizes that the present tariff is  a ioke. Tt is lop-sided, inconsistent and whollv  indefensible. He makes certain specific tariff  demands, which can be met, wholly or partly,  without bringing about that state of dire industrial ruination which high-tariff advocates are  so fond of insisting unon the moment the tariff  is even discussed. He naturally regards these  pessimistic predictions as so much bunc. And  he is cpiitc entitled to do so. His mental altitude  is that he wants to be "shown." If any particular tariff adjustment, affecting an industry that  may be reasonably justified on Canadian soil,  can be demonstrated to lead to the ruin of such  an industry, he would bc the first to denounce it.  He has his stake in Canada, and would not tolerate any public action of Mich a destructive nature.

R, head of the Railway-  men's Unibn, is given a- large share of tlie credit  for preventing a sympathetic strike of railway-  men and thus opening the way for .negotiations  which finally led to a settlement of the miners'  strike in England.  "Without intending to''minimize, the credit due  to Premier Lloyd George for the final settlement  of llie miners' strike, it should be pointed out  that the government of England, unlike that of  Canada, does not pretend to. hold a monopoly on  brains, and over there government leaders have  learned to listen to and co-operate with-thc men  at the head of the labor organizations;  Mr. Thomas, head of the Raihvaymen's Union,  recently gave a very clear and concise statement  cf the position  of organized labor in  thc    Old  Country, a  statement which proves  that Labor  has  leaders quite  as  capable and  far-seeing as  anyone, on the government side.-  . V'No 'man," he.said, "who pretends to serve the  besl interests of thc workers, can ever disregard  thc general 'interests, of - thc community.    However powerful any particular section, may be at  !a given moment, its interests must be held as  secondary to those of the community, as a whole.  "Keeping this principle in mind   it   must   be  conceded in all fairness that in the long history  of cur country, Labor has not had a fair deal.  The war proved'-that.; Despite this, no section  of llie conimunily had a greater love of country  or a higher patriotism than tlie British-workers.  "We've come out of the Avar with greater resolution lo insist lhat brains are not the, monopoly  of any class.   Wc ask to share with the employer,  in the development and-improvement of industrial, interests.    We demand a- higher  standard  of existence.    Instead of being treated as a commodity, like soap or sugar, wc must be recognized as having human rights.  "JBut Labor has no illusions about general conditions. Now .the world is immeasurably poorer. The accumulated wealth of centuries has  been poured out in destruction and waste. Millions of producers were,, for,four years,, turned  into consumers and millions of others have been  permanently withdrawn from production. That's  the problem. We believe it can be solved by a  new recognition cjf citizenship. What wc do  must bc constructive and not destructive. Wc  must,get our results, not by .pulling down, but  by building up..    " - V- _ .        J.V  "'."There must not be destruction of ordered institution s, by bloody revolution! J It. is an ordered  social* change towards ."which":- the JLabbr movement in".this country is directing its efforts.  "Organized labor is not moving blindly but  understands thoroughly, the conditions necessary  to restore prosperity,  o ."  "Tbe best evidence of the spirit that animates  labor is the. fact that for eleven days over a million men have been involved and another, million  and a half indirectly affected and yet in no single  instance has it bcen necessary to consider the  use of the police or thc military.  "There is a clear appreciation by the worker  that in industrial disputes it is not necessary to  appeal to violence and disorder. e  "Turning tp the larger aspect, the world can  recover if the nations will slop all thc wars that  are going on and immediately make peace. If  we had had the active and powerful help ol America "this might have been accomplished already. No two nalions can do as much as America and> ourselves.  "Wc ought to havc peace with Germany and  with Russia. That peace has not come is due  largely to ,thc fact lhat all of us in Europe are  suifering from shell-shock. But wc Will pull  through.  Fisheries Production in Canada.  The Dominion Bureau of Statistics has issued  o preliminary statement of the fisheries production, of Canada for the year 1919 prepared from  ,thc "compilation of icturns collected by thc Bureau in co-ropcration with lhc Fisheries Branch  of thc Department of Marine and Fisheries. The  total value pf fish marketed fresh and of fish products is given as $56,485,579, cpmpared with a  value of $60,250,544 for 1918. Sardines and  herring showed thc largest decreases both in  value marketed and quantity caught." Thc catch  of haddock, halibut and cod was greater in 1919  lhan in 1918, while the value'marketed."was less.  Salmon, lobsters and mackerel showed increases,  both in quantity caught and in value marketed.  British Columbia fisheries had a value of $25.-  301,607, which is a- decrease f;om 1918 of nearly  two million dollars. Nova Scotia fisheries were  valued at $15,171,929, a slight increase over 1918.  Prince Edward Island, Ontario, Saskatchewan  and Alberta showed-increases in value- while  New Brunswick, Quebec, Manitoba and Yukon  showed decreases.  W. R. Machines,  ._. Vice-President C. P. ti.  WAR'S   AWFUL   LESSON.  v  Critical Times Ahead.  evening  Speaking at Vancouver last Friday  Mr. Calder said: * "Today wc havc a situation in  Canada -where the western prairies are for free  trade and in the eastern portion of the Dominion  a certain section is looking for the highest kind  of protection.' Here there arc two extremes. In  my judgment there is only one solution. The  people must bc moderate and sane. If Canada  is to .become a unit and" to progress and develop  as she should, every effort must ..be made to get  the,pcpnle together on ihis important question.  There should be no East and no West,- no farming class and _no5industrial class, and if Mr.  Meighen is retained as Prime Minister tliis can  and will.be accomplshed.','        ' "  The busy, man has few idle visitors; to the  boiling pot thc flics come not.���������������������������Benjamin Franklin. ��������������������������� ������������������  pvangejine  a|iwc|   in   Rroiw  We learri nothing from" our experiences,   tliat   is   the ..saddest   message  history   can   bring  to   us.
