In the absence of  federal legislation, therefore, the  government of this province contends thut it cannot afford lo neglect  either from a humanitarian or an  economic standpoint such action as  may lead to the establishment of  mothers' pensions.  A system of public nursing would  contemplats the stationing of &  nurse at strategic points, whose duty  it would be to carry out emergency  work, sanitary work aud school inspection and generally to act as an  educational medium for the furtherance of .health and child welfare  work. ���������  While it must be understood  these matters are to form the subject of a carefnl survey on the part  of the social welfare commission,  Dr. MacLean authorizes the publication of the foiegoihg details so that  the general pubiic may become acquainted with an eventuating policy  should its feasibility be demonstra  ted by tbe information.gleaned.  mttrm'News of the Clfyl  . While the people of Grand  Forks  will have an opportunity of posting  themselves   upon   the  various subjects into which the newly appointed  social. welfare commission  will  inquire, at a meeting   of  the   commission in the courthouse  in   this  city  next   Wednesday  evening, the  mora general phases of its investiga  tion are explained in a   memoranda  now is3Uedfby Hon. J. D. MacLean,  minister of education and provincial  ecretary,whose department assumes  urisdiction.    As already announced  in   the press   of  the  province, the  scope of the   inquiry will   include  state health insurance, mothers' and  widows' pensions, and public health  nursing.  - Tbe present workman's compensation act is a species of state health  insurance unto itself,   inasmuch  as  - it provides for surgical.and   hospital  ���������treatment "in ail cases of accident.  The act, therefore, creates a basis  from which the larger provision  might be made. That is to say, its  machinery would lend, itself to meet  tne cost of treatment of medical ail-  - clients not only of the workmen, but  a'so of his family. Undei such a  plan, in the event of its feasibility'  being established, both the family  and the workman would be given  the choice of. a medrcal practitioner  whose fees would be fixed by an administrative board in consultation  with doctors, nurses and hospitals.  It will be observed,of -.course, that  the underlying principle is one of  cooperation and the pooling of  monies with which the cost of medical, nursing and hospital attention  would be met. It .is believed, too,  that in operation there would be  created a community sentiment bent  upon its owe salf-preservation. For  instance, there wouid be a direct in  c-jntive to he more careful in matteis  of sanitation because of the knowl-  tdge that upon the amount of sickness prevalent to the cost to contributors would depend.

The district.poultry  show, which  opeued in this city ybsterday morn  ing   and  closed this evening, was a  very successful affair in spite of  the  inhospitable weather  that  has  pre  vailed during the past week.  On the whole the show was a  credit to the district both in number of birds entered and in quality.  All the local poultry-men made big  exhibits, and tbey all captured  their usual'quota of. prizes... There  were, besides, mmy exhibits from  Nelson and other towns in the district.

Prohibition has been blamed for a number  of unpleasant things besides an occasional  costly jag. First the sug"r shortage was attributed to the knockout blow given John  Barleycorn, because so much of the sweet stuff  now goes into the manufacture of temperance  beverages. Now; the charge is made that'prohibition is the direct cause of curtailed production, which is, of course, responsible for  the high cost of living and many other evils.  Those who make this assertion have some  facts hack of their contention. They say that  after a laborer has made a "stake" he becomes  so independent that he won't work; he simply  takes it easy until the money is spent. Neither  love nor money, they claim, can induce him  take up his customary occupation until he becomes financially embarrassed. In -pre-temperance-times,' they point out, the workman  used to go out to occunmlatea roll, come into  town and spend it in a few days, and then  be compelled to return to his work. There  seems to be some logic to this -line of argument. But whether intemperance or underproduction is the greater evil, we leave to the  moralist and the economist to wrangle over.  We simply started out to show a condition as  it exists, and our object has been accomplished: ":": :���������'",;<���������'"  The mining industry in Alaska, which began  in 1880; when the gold placers at Juneau were  first exploited, has produced more $418,000,-  000 worth of gold, silver, copper, tin, tungsten,  antimon}', coal, -petroleum, marble, gypsum,  chrornite, platinum and palladium. But in recent years foreign competition in certain industries, the scarcity of labor and , ships and  the cost of material have forced production below normal. In 1918 the output of Alaskan  mines, the smallest since 1914, was worth  only $28,253-,961..  There is a great scarcity of eggs these days.  Now, it is customary to blame prohibiten for  all the unpleasant and inconvenient things  that man has fallen heir to. We therefore  take it for granted that the hens have gone on  a strike for their morning toddy.        -  Whoever has journeyed to Cairo and from  there desires to go on to Jerusalem may now  buy his ticket in the Cairo railway station and  look out of the windows of the train at the  scenery of the Plain of Sharon as he makes  his trip. The rail connection has been completed by a new line from Ludi to Haifa, passing the ruins of "Athlit, where the Templars  long ago had their last stronghold in Palestine.  The journey from Egypt to the Holy Land is  greatly simplified; one need no longer land at  Jaffa, nor wonder, how much one's plans will  be interfered with by bad conditions of wind  and sea. More than that, Jerusalem is a much  less dubious place for the tourist to visit, and  its points of interest may be much more conveniently inspected than they used to be.  Good order is maintained; the city is under  British discipline; the chance of "falling among  thieves," more or less an accepted   risk  under  ' In spite of the fact that the World Trade  club.of San Francisco has offered a prize of  $1000 to the person first suggesting the best  name, word denoting U.S. America and  Britannia,, the old words are not likely to wane  in popularity. However, it is intejestihg to  note that the rules of the cpiTtest, which is  open to all mankind,have just been announced.  Words to*be considered must be received .before May 1, 1920. One thousand dollars has  been deposited w*th the Wells-Fargo-Nevada  National Bank of San Francisco, and the  amount will be paid in the currency of the nation from which the best word is suggested, to  the person first suggesting the best name. So  far names have come from ail quarters of the  globe���������particularly from the United...States,  Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, British  Isles, Canada, the Philippines, Eurasia, Africa,  China, Japan, Oceania. Names are pouring in  from all parts of the world, including- France  and the Scandinavian countries' "Uhitania"  is the best word received thus far. The. question now is, will someone device a better name  tha'n Unitania before May 1, 1920, and thus  earn the World Trade club's award of $1000?  Germany has refused to sign the peace  treaty, and the allies are taking steps to compel her to do so. Following a conference between Field Marshal Wilson of Britain and  Marshal Foch, military plans to enforce the  terms of the armistice have been completed.  These are substantially the same as those  made last June, when it was uncertain whether  would accept the treaty.  The coal mines of the United States will be  worked out in 2000 years, provided the coal  miners do not go on any more strikes.

Manly,  Councilman   Fisher, Walter   Askew,  _T Alfred Koniiion,' E. Miller, Peter  McRae, Frank'! Sears, li A Sheads,  W   B. Bower and a Sun reporter.  The councilman of Grand Forks  say that the assertion by the Gazette  that they passed a resolution to back  Mayor White if he would pummel  Earle McCarter, is a falsehood made  out of whole cloth.  It appears that;the resignation of  all the teacher's in the Grand Forks'  public school have been demanded.  The reason advanced for this action  is tho expected amalgamation' of  Grand Furks and Columbia in the  near future. A closer scrutiny of the  " incident reveals strong evidence that  it is more the result of . the uuwai>  ranted aud vicious mcdling of a local  journal which imputes evil motives  to all whom it deems of sufficient im  portance to notice than to anything  else,  The   Grand    Forks   city     council  raised the salary of   the   citv   electri  ciau, F.

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.  Hew many large concerns  can you name in any large  city in the country? Name  them and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are readers 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.  0      -  <^A������'  (a  I  *������& a s f* tf^ &* ^ cs i? ?> n I ������������������ m fSt yv" 0& w&n  M  Hi C5 "WW d?**  tk u i'3 *Q> a   &   fca la ^      y sul b ���������i)    ^s^ x&u a u iV eivs of the City  The schooner Two Per Cent is icebound just outside the bar.
