C, FRIDAY,   AUGUST 6, 1920  "Tell me what youKnow is true:  I can guess as well as you."  $1.00 PER YEAR  THE BOCK CANDY  Work at . North Forks  Property Detailed in  Minister's Annual Report  In the annual report of the minister of mines, Resident Engineer  Freeland gives the following details  of work done at the Rock Candy  mice.  The Rock Candy mine is situated  on Kennedy  creek,   a tributary of  ��������������������������� the North Fork of the  Kettle ��������� river.  This  group   consises  of  the  Rock  Candy, Tadanac, Rabbit, Portal No.  1, Portal No. 2, .Fluorspar fraction  and Decimal fraction, and   contains  267.8 acres. The Consolidated Mining kSmelting  company, of   Trail,  V.   which owns the property, has  done  a considerable amount  of development work.   During  the  early part  of the year an aerial tram line,  two  miles Jong from  the-mine   to the  millj was completed;   also bunkers,  log Dunk houses, kitchen and offices  constructed at the mine.  The first development work   consisted -of-r-diaruoud   drilling,- which  was not entirely successful owing to  ���������.   the difficulty of saving the disintegrated ledge mattecan the core   barrels.  A crosscut was then started 35  feet above Kennedy creek and driven  -   100  feet  before  the  ledge material  was struck; This crosscnt was   continued through the deposit for a con  siderable distance.   The deposit, approximately 140 feet   wide, on   this  level was considerably crushed   and  contained stringers, of chert, kaolin,  barite,   and   quartz, with  only two  bodies of fluonte, varying f-rom three  lo seven feet.    Iu this   lead   matter  occurred inclusions of   cha[copyrite,  limonite galena.- chalcocite, pyrite,  and   cavellite,   with   large tabular  crystals   of   barite in   the cavities.  The limonite, chalcocite, and cavellite, are secondary minerals.  The deposit formed near the sur  face, under low temperature condin  tions, may not be expected to persist  in depth. The rocks lying to the east  of che deposite are phases of alkali  syenite, while those to the west, with  coarse phenocrysts of feldspar, evidently belong to the group referred  to as alkali syenite porphyry, and  are of late tertiary age.  A drift was started from No. 1  crosscut and continued for a considerable distance, following the  commercial fluorite deposit in the  footwall; theu another crosscut was  driven east from the tuuuel and a  deposit on the hanging wall encountered and drifted in. An upraise has been put in between No. 1  and No 2 to facilitate the handling  of the ore from above; No. 2 will be  driveu under No, 3 and the ore from  the Btope taken through No. 2 and  No. 1. The deposit at No. 3 level is  about ."50 feet wide and contains a  good grade of fluorite.    The color of  only in small segregations, are very  a'etrimental to the commercial value  ofthe fluorspar, and a good deal of  otherwise high grade ore has to be  discarded on this account. No profit  able means, at present, have been  found to eliminate, the .' sulphides.  That there is a certain"amount of re-  deposition going an is ^apparent in  the lower tunnel, where a fresh  break on the rock is in a few days  covered by a thin film of fluorescent  hue.

The reduction in the number of  daily'"'"newspapers' by"' 'suspensions,'  absorptions and amalgamations is  not alone due to high cost of paper  and other costs, but to changing  conditions in the newspaper business, and is likely to continue, for  we entering upon most critical times  for them, says the Financial Post.  The main  supply   of  world-wide  news is now furnished by the  Asso  ciated Press and several other   news  gathering services. Exactly tbe same  general, and much of the local,news  appears in every daily newspaper in  Canada. The same  condition exists  in   the  advertising  columns.    This  standardization of news   and advertising service is likely to go on stead  ily improving, and  the   publication  of more than one good  morning or  evening paper in a center is  hecom  ing very much of a wasteful duplica  tion of effort.    A good daily   paper,  even in the smallest   centers, is well  worth, and should be  sold   for   five  cents, and a family should be   content wtth one.  Rural weeklies, national weeklies,  and periodicals are 'in a different  class. Their contents are entirely  original; that is, they do not appear  in any other publication. They are  becoming increasingly more expen  sive to produce. The reading matter in a single issue of a leading  Canadian magazine costs more 'han  eight or ten times the whole reading  contents in a leading daily paper.  The Free Press, Forest,  Ont.,   refers   to   the passing out because of  increased cost within  the   last   few  years of eight of  the fifteen   newspapers published in' Lambton ooun  ty. This will be regretted   by   those  who know country life in Canada. A  rural weekly and small  city daily is  moje of a public institution   than a  money-making   enterprise.     Tbere  are few editors of rural and smaller  daily papers who are not underpaid,  self-sacrificing public servants. They  give   more to than   they   get   from J  to*go back to and do something  for  the old'home..   If the   world   treats  them well they  want   to share   the  good"--'-things.;" with     the    .schools,  churches and institutions  -in ."-their,  old bomesi.  Many of them do. These  generous thoughts can   be   best   retained by keeping them   constantly  in touch with the doings   at .home.  There   is   only oue   way���������the local  newspaper.   No   matter  how   busy  we are we make time to   read   tbat,  if it comes to us.    At one time these  papers were carrfecT'free to an y sub������  scriber in Canada or in   the  United  States, but Dr. Coulter dropped this  very   soon   after  his  advent to the  deputy   postmaster generalship.    It  was a very serious mistake.   Thous-  aads of Canadians were cut off   who  have never since regained'touch.  We submit these facts to parliament with the suggestion that they,  the M.P's.seriously consider whether  ���������as a good business proposition���������  we should not permit these rural  weeklies and smaller dailies an un  limited free postal area. The investment will be trifling and the return to tbe nation   very   profitable.  erator, on Saturday made good his  prediction that be would drive a  motorboat with the apparatus as a  source of power.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 1.920  A CURE FOR THE PRESENT UNREST  The federal government's habit of ignoring  parliament is shown by its course in deferring  lhe ministerial changes until the session was  over and there was no opportunity for- parliament to consider the situation. Even during  the session the government ranks had begun  to break, and some former supporters  had gone over to the opposition or the cross  benches. What would have happened "if, during the session, the Liberal Unionists had been  told that they must follow Meighen instead of  Borden? What would have been the effect  upon tho Ontario Liberal Unionists of the  withdrawal of their leader, Mr. Rowell, from  the government? Mr. Howell's conclusion, as  .stated in his letter of resignation, is. "That  when a decision should be reached that the  work of the Unionist government as such was  finished, and that a new departure should be  made by the creation of a new party and the  formation of an administration to represent  that party he might fairly ask an honorable  discharge."  This means that the Liberal. Unionists of  Ontario who regarded Mr. Rrwell as their  leader are also released from their obligation  to support the government and are free to take  any course they please.  It can not be said that Mr. Rowell showed  any undue haste in making the break. He has,  in fact, been criticizod for staying in the government too long. Be that as it may, now that  he has gone, there is no reason for any Liberal  Unionist to remain in the ranks of Unionism.  In fact, Unionism is dead. Mr. Calder is one  of those who remain. But a little more than a  year ago, Mr. Calder made a statement in th*e  house which logieally bound him to resign today. He was talking about Orerar's resignation and explaining why he did not fOllow"Mr.  Cretar's example. He said: v  Let me ask Hon. Members jf this house: What would  be the consequence if we all followed the course taken by  the Hon Mf;mher for Marquette (Mr Orerar) Suppose  tlie minister of public works (Mr Carvell) rcMgned and  the president of the privy council (Al>*. Kowe.ll). and the  acting minister of trade and commerce (Mr MacLean)  and myself ami others sliou-d resign?  When Mr. Calder mentioned himself the  house expressed skepticism. Hansard says  that some Hon. Members exclaimed "Oh, sh."  But Mr. Calder replied:  Do not be too sure, my friends.    The task   of  carrying  ' 'JO  on government in this country and the responsibilities that  are thrown   upon   public   men���������[before   the   increase   in  ministers' salaries]���������are not so alluring as some hon. gen  tiemen opposite seem to think  I say that if these resignations did take place there  would immediately be a political crisis in this country, and  one thing, and one thing only, could happen, either the  prime minister would have to appeal to tlie-oountrv or he  would have to advise the "overnor-general to call upon  my friend who leads the opposition to form a government.  Now all the ministers mentioned by Mr.  Calder, except himself, have reeigned���������Sir  Robert Borden has resigned, and Sir Thomas  White, the minister of finance, has resigned,  and Gen. Mewburn, ' the minister of militia,  and Mr. Burrell, the secretary of state. So ac-  tired and out of touch with the country. The  remedy is a new government and a new house  of commons, representing public opinion as it  is today, not as it'was in 1917. ' Both govern-  ernment and parliament are aware of the lack  of sympathy between them and>.the people,but  are afraid to apply the remedy. -Many supporters of the government realize that they  can not be re-elected, and for that very reason-  shrink from a general election. The situation  is uncomfortable enough, but not as bad as  that which an election would bring about.  Holding an election would be like jumping ont  of the fryidg pan into the fire.  Yet, it would  not be safe to connt with  certainty on another year passing  without a  general election. The government and its supporters must look forward with dread  to  the  prolonged agony of another session^, even with  the idemnity increased to  $4000���������the prime  minister's salary increased to $15,000, or $19,-  000   with  the. indemity, and   his colleagues'  salaries  to $10,000,  or $14,000  with the in  demnity. The session just closed was  full  of  worry and anxiety. The government majority,  which was stated in the Parliamentary Guide  "to be 71 in 191-7, dropped to 34 on the amendment   calling   for   a    general  election,  and  to 26 on the amendment calling for tariff reduction. It was only 5'on the resolution relating to the appoiutment of a Canadian ambassador at Washington. Next session the situation is likely to be worse.  A government was formed in 1917 for war  purposes. Quite a different government is in  office todav���������the leader, Sir Robert Borden,  has gone. He is eulogized by the Mail and  Empire as the greatest son of Canada. "He  goes out of office with the greatest reputation  ever made by a Canadian statesman." This is  putting him on a pesdestal higher than Sir  Wilfrid Laurier, higher'than Sir . John Mac-  Donald. If this is true, the cabinet is enormously weakened by his -withdrawal. Then  the cabinat is- also-weakened by the withdrawal of. .Mr. Crerar, Mr- Crothers, Gen. New-  burn, Mr. Carvell and Mr. MacLean. The  latest to go are Mr. RowelFand- Mr. Burrell.  Admitting for the sake of argument the most  extravagant claims as to the~ services of the  war cabinet formed in 1917, the credit of its  achievements can not be taken by the mere  remnants ofthe cabinet, the shreds and patches  which are now left at Ottawa.  The government has been patched, and the  party which supports it has put on patched  garments. It seems to think that some miracle can be performed by a change of name.  Years ago the Conservativo party became  Liberal Conservative. In 1917 this name was  changed to Unionist. After less than three  years this name is thrown aside and we behold  a National Liberal and Conservative party.  Even the Maii and Empire balked at the  clumsy title, and the -Farmer's Sun jokingly  suggests a Hot and Cold party. The country  will not be satisfied with their patchwork. It  wants a real change and a house of commons  that will represent.public opinion as it is today, the genuine sentiment of town and  country. - -   ���������   -��������� ���������������������������  The war has thrown an enormous burden  on the country. The net debt after  deducting assets is fixed by the minister  of finance at $'2,273,305,430. It is a situation  demanding the most severe economy, yet the  government is squandering money as if it were  drawing upon an inexhaustible gold mine. It  declares that it has no permanent naval policy,  yet it spends two million dollars this yoar on  a temporary makeshift arrangement. It professes faith in the league of nations, which is  to be a safeguard against war, yet it launches  out into increased military expenditure.

A CURE FOR THE '  PRESENT UNREST  {Continued from, Page 2.)  abiding p-ople. Ourt'arms and artisans are hot a turbulent aioh, re-.  qniring to be kept in order by a  fjrce of men arrayed iu gaudy in i-  forms. People gaze at the tine looking young men in fine raiment 'and  spurts aud wonder what the govern  n e a is afraid of. Is it a guilty cor.-  ; s irhce that lequires  all  these   precautions?    We  need   sturdy young  men on tbe farms, and these youug  f-Mows look as if they would be welcome additions to the farmers'working force.: A Winnipeg dispatch says  trie, '-white collar poor" are flocking  to the promising farm lauds of west"  crn' Canada, officials of the Canadian National Llailways declare. They  say 60 per cent of tbe people taking  up -far-us along their, lines are back-  to-the* laud bookkeepers, tradesmen,  arusana, shopkeepers, clerks and  other folks who are seeking relief  I mm the high cost of living io the  ernes.. Between 20(J and 3U0 such  ptreons inquire about farm lands at  it.e Winnipeg, office alone each  w^fk, they report. -..���������~  This Is thekind of movement that  the country needs and ought r.n encourage. Men who are going hack  to the land, as owners or workers,  are aot likely to get into mischief.  Hard work.and contact with nature  are far better.steadying forces than  mounted police and a standing army  But it"se^bie impossible for the government to get the war idea out of  its head, and tbe war temper out of  its heart, it is influenced by its  fears. The German menace having  been removed, it is, afraid '-ofniie  Canadian people. It has .'no cb~i.fi.  deuce in the people, and the people  have noconfidence in the government. Tnat is tbe secret of the "uu-  reBt," and the cure for the unrest is  a new "government that will be  trusted by the people and will trust  the people    ���������  An 'old parliamentary hand"  puts it in this way: In parliament  a motion calling for a change of  government is .called a motion oi'  "want of confidence.'* You may  talk about production and reconstruction until you are black in the  face, but you will get nowhere until  confidence is restored, until the people of Cauada trust each other and  t,ru.-t the government and   trust   the  parliament. Then you need also a  government that is not afraid of the  people, and a parliament-deriving  itB strength from contact with the  people, knowing bow the common  people live and what they want.  The people may make mistakes���������  none of dp is infallible. But so long  as we trust each other, and trust our  trustees, we are not likely to go very  far astray.  At present the trouhle is that the  ; trustees are absolutely out  of touch  i with the people whom they are supposed to protect, and perve    To realize this one needs to-be   in   O'tawa,  and yet in go nut  of Ottawa   to talk  With . mem hers   of   parliament, and  to talk    with    farmets,    m'-chaniop,  laborers, teachers, storekeepers   and  get their point of view.  '   V, .  . There-are ��������� several reasons why  this parliameJt hap got out of touch  with the common people. It was  elected in 1917, when the country  whs thinking about the war, and  hardly anything else; elected by a  franchise low wbich',to put it mildly,  was .extraordinary ...-ind. not suited to  normal times. Soldiers voted under  I stress of danger and anxiety, with  no time to study Canadian issues,  sometimes not knowing anything  about the candidate^. Now thet-e  men have returned and they have a  right to vote neau their own homes,  and amid familiar surroundings  aud with a full .knowledge' of local  conditions. .They-want to nominate  thoir owu candidates, or at, least to  have some voice in the choice of  candidates.  ���������'But think of the unrept, the  turmoil, the disturbance, the ferment   of new thought.". ���������  Someone  ( Continued on Page 4-)  S\  P?5  ITISE  j#  1\/[R- BUSINESS cJMAN,  have you ever thought  that advertising putf you in  good company? It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the company he keeps.  When you join the ranks of  the advertisers you join the  ranks of the biggest and  most successful merchants  and manufacturers in the  world.  How many large concerns  cari you name in any large  city in the country? Name  them and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are leaders in their  lines. Ask your friends to  name the most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name ot a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is true of  smaller cities and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  B  "IP  B  llr=r: THE   SUN.
