Thursday, July 28, 1921  'Pass Prosperity Around"  Ottawa politicians and others have been speculating the past week on the results of the recent  Alberta election, when the Liberals were swept  from power- Thcy havc wondered how it hap-  pended and are now guessing what would-be thc  result if a Dominion election were called lhis  fall oi- in the early spring..  Albert J. Bevcridgc, as. chairman of thc Progressive parly ol" lhc United Slates, once said,  "the. rule of the people means that when the people's legislators make a law which hurts the people, the people, themselves may reject it. The  rule of thc people means lhat when the people's  legislators refuse lo pass a law which the people  need, Lhe people themselves may pass it. The  rule ol" the. people means that when thc people's  employees do not .do Ihc people's work well and  honestly, the people may discharge them exactly  as a business man discharges employees who do  not do their work well and honestly. The people's ollicials are thc people's servants, not the  people's masters."  Politicians very olien refuse to face the truth.  What is clear to thc average man on thc street,  i.s very often opaque to lhc average politician.!  lie will not sec  The Vancouver Farm and Home says "Alberta  farmers have done what Canada expected: thcy  have secured for a farming province a farmers'  government.      Anybody   who   has   travelled   or  farmed in Alberta will realize that Alberta farmers have labored  under much less serious difficulties and hardships than those which obstruct  thc progress and happiness of British Columbia.  "Thc victory of our brother farmers of Alberta  should bc seized by the United Farmers of B. C.  a.s a  signal to action.      Thc time is opportune.  Our Province is suffering from  maladministration, the interests of farming go begging for governmental support, existing roads arc but ditches  in many cases, millions of acres of the richest  agricultural   land   of  the   province   remain   improperly alienated,  the public revenue is being  squandered,  and   the  public  debt  has  been   increased  in five vears from  $16,000,000 to $41,-  000,000.   -  "It is not only advisable on behalf of their  own interests that British Columbia farmers  should enter politics; it is a public duly which  lhcy owe lhc Province" as a whole and would  make possible thc elimination of "the barriers  now standing between thc producers and consumers of farm products, .whether wheat or  leather for shoes.  "Government of, by and for thc whole people  of British Columbia cannot be secured until the  farmers of" this Province send al least a dozen  representatives to Victoria; such a number  would cither control thc House or exert such a  large influence that the beneficial results to the  Province would at once be manifest.

Shifting the Responsibility  Every trade and calling today is apparently  trying to convince every other branch of commerce that IT is not responsible for thc prevailing business stagnation. Tlie latest to come forward with a denial that IT is responsible is thc  ..wish of his leaders, and, no mailer what thc people ask for hc has lhe unhappy faculty of turning  lhat request into a partisan channel lhat usually  ends in a blind alley. What h_.s been true of politics in thc United States, and in countries in Europe, is as true today of politics, in Canada, and  thc_pcople of the Dominion arc as certain lo..bc  heard as the people of othcr countries havc been  heard. Tlie present movement of the" people under what is known as thc United Farmers' party,  is much morc than agrarian. It is the people  of town, counlry and city joining in making a  political clean-up. The root of lhc wrongs which  hurt, the people is thc fact lhat thc people's government has been taken away from them���������������������������an  invisible government has usurped thc people's  government. Their government must be given  hack to the people. 7\\id in Canada the people  are going about il in thc right way to get it-  In Canada, as elsewhere, special  have usurped the people's government, arc bipartisan.

Thcy are  the invisible government behind the visible "government- Rightly or wrongly, Ihc people feci  lhat Conservative and Liberal bosses alike arc  brother officers of this hidden power, .and that  no matter how fiercely lhcy pretend to fight  one another before election on the US riff issue,  they work together" after election���������������������������and always  in the interest of the invisible government behind the visible government. It is this invisible  government,   which   is   the  real   danger  to  Can  wilh the declaration that thc  increased railway rates havc had nothing to do  with the raising of prices and subsequent business depression.  This is a good one. Unquestionably, the rais-,  ing of freight and passenger rates by the railways had as much to. do with bringing on thc existing business depression as any other raise in  rates by anyone else. Increased . railway rates  hil everything and everybody. Every businessman had to add so much morc to his prices;  every shipper of coal, lumber, wheat, meats and  what-not had to add enough to his price to cover  the additional freight, and the consumer had to  pay the additional rate or not buy. Finally thc  people stopped buying; hence the business depression. That business depression will continue  just as long as high prices continue is certain.  Nothing can be gained by the railroads in the  attempt to shift the responsibility for business  interests that depression. Every other business institution  might follow thc same course, but this would  not alter the case nor relieve the depression.  Would it not be wiser for everybody to accept  his share of the responsibility lor the depression  and resolve to henceforth do his part to.reduce  thc cost of living and bring back the measure of  prosperity which should be ours?  -1  Are We posing Ground?

Every summer Banff and Lake Louise are  .thronged with members of the fair  sex who hit the trail to"' view the  beauties of lakes and streams  where the .trout hide, climb mountains and camp for days near to  Nature's heart. Safeguarded by  expert guides they learn to ford  streams, fish and shoot, while there  ���������������������������re   teal   Swiss   guides   from  the  Alps overseas to show the way to  the summits of majestic mountains.  When they ride, climb and camp  they wear riding breeches just as  well as their brothers, husbands or  sweethearts and nobody thinks anything about it'��������������������������� not even Mrs.  Grundy, because she has been wearing the shortest of short skirts herself" to be in the mode. The war  changed many things. It gave  woman the vote and made ��������������������������� breeches  for women conventional.  Beauty appeals to the outdoor  rirl, and she loves the Canadian  Rockies which rise a mile or more  above Lake Louise and Banff be  cause they are unexcelled in beauty  and majesty. The Alpine Club of  Canada has many women members,  the most expert of whom do. not  hesitate to attempt the conquest, of ar  any peak men have . ascended. Ill  1901 Mount Assiniboine was ascended for the first time by Sir James  Outram. Three years later Miss .  Gertrude Benham, an English girl,  was the first of her sex to reach  the summit of this great peak, the  Matterhorn of the Canadian Rockies.  Both were assisted by Swiss guides.

ATHLETICS   FOR   GIRLS  Dr. A. Kenealy wrote: "Women  who develop masculine .instead of  feminine attributes do this at the  cost of the male potential, which is  transmitted by the father to the  daughter iii trust for the male line.  Athletic women produce female offspring, mainly, and seldom have  sons. When sons are born to them,  these are apt to be puny and delicate  or generally emasculate or of inferior type. The cultured classes  who are mainly afflicted by athletic  training are failing to provide sons  of the fine physique and manly talents and initiative which have set  our Anglo-Saxon race in the van of  evolution."  Miss Cowdroy, of the Crouch End  Girls' High School, said that the  girl who had been trained to hockey,  cricket and football, suffered at  childbirth. Sometimes the child suffered,'5 and sometimes the mother;  sometimes one of them died. Doctors  had told' her that difficult confinements could often be traced to strenuous sports. Eighty per cent of the  girls she had known who had been  trained to become gymnastic mistresses had been incapacitated for  motherhood. A girl had a large store  of vital and nervous energy which  she could draw upon, if normally developed, at the great crisis of  motherhood. That strength was a  deposit account; but if she used it  as a current account, as a boy could  afford to do, her children would pay  the bill. She believed the Victorian  girl was a better mother than the  modern athletic.girl.

SprouJ, -ti  ter alluding to the so-called "frtyrw  block;  -��������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� -    -      -  --  ���������������������������aid=-  hlockade"   that   occurred   to   |!  W.  "Just  as  it  waa lightly _������������������U������������������  ~th������������������n-that_the_wilrdads_^ad_b>i>f*''r  down, so now H is readily ftntfwj  that tbe increase in railroad rates if  responsible fo* the stagnation of  business. Because transportation is  so important a factor in business it  would be a serious charge, jf it were  true, that the railroad rates had produced the present stag-nation in business.    But it is not true.   _���������������������������  "On the contrary, the railroad  rates were not raised in time to enable the railroads to move the commerce of the country in its active  period when the business of tht  country at large could easily absorb  thc increase. The fact ia that tht  rates were raised and business declined at about the same time, but  one had nothing to do with the otbtT  as a related matter.  "In proof.of the suggestion, let we  call your attention to tht water retee.  The rates by water have been on the  decline. Yet private owners are  laying up their ships. The United  States Shipping Board'* ships art  laid up by the score because business  is stagnant. The cause is found in  the sheer inability of business to fret  back on a peace basis. That is the  reason business has halted.  "Yet the call of the day is that  railroads reduce their rates because  business is bad. This call for reduction comes from all sources and  on all important commodities and  from all sections of the country. I  venture the opinion that if all tha  railroads of this country were, by  some edict, to reduce their rates one-  half on every kind of traffic everywhere, there would be no appreciable  increase in the volume of business  moved, but the railroads would be  prostrate in one common disaster  that would shake the nation and call  credits into question."  The reason the newspaper graveyard is so full is shown by an editor  who has been investigating the cause  of so many newspaper demises. He  figures out that in 1907 wages were  at 100. In 1914 they had .advanced  to 178, and in 1921 the figure was  393. Newsprint from 100 jumped to  177 in 1914, and to 623 in 1921. Newspaper postage, which cost the normal  of 100 in 1907, was 147 in 1914, and  337 in 1921. Ink was 100 in 1907, 200  in 1914, and today stands at 331. Editorial expense jumped from 100 in  1907 to 120 in 1914, and 241 in 1921.  Miscellaneous expenses went front  100 in 1907sto 125 in 1914, and to 244  in 1921. Taking the average of all  newspaper costs it was found that,  while the average of 1907 was 100, in  1914 it was 159. and in 1921 it  reached the high mark of 411. It is  not "surprising with such figures that  over 4,000 newspaper publications  have gone out of existence in the  United States, and a corresponding  number of them in Canada.  By using British Columbia fir instead of red pine in its new livestock  arena, the Toronto city council and  contractors on the building are saving  $320,500. Lumber officials consider  this quite a boost for lumber and it  means that the product of this province is beginning to win its way in the  jriarfccts___of__Ea&iern_jCanada__jn_co*m__.  petition with pine from foreign countries.
