They  .know they must work, and work  hard, if the world is to be fed, and  that others must work hard if it i.s  j to have the other necessaries and  comforts of life. No more sensible  views on the present situation have  bien   expressed   by   anyone     than  will  must be   wholly laid upon the. Tliis Is  Optimistic  Fore- 1tnose embodied in the resolutions of  present   provincial   administration. the   International   Farm   : Congress  The prescription evil would long ago      cast by  Foreign   Office  The people of Grand Forks were  given an opportunity to post theme  ��������� selves>at a meeting in tbe court  house nn Wednesday evening, upon  the various subjects into which the  newly appointed social welfare commission is inquiring in a tour of tbe  province. The meeting was  attended and much interest was  taken in the explanation of the various phases of the contemplated  legislation.  The members of the commission  ��������� who visited the city were E. S. H.  Winn, chairman of the workmen's  compensation commission; D. McCallum, - who represents labor on  the board; Dr. S. B. Green, of New  Westminster; Mrs. C. Spafiord, of  Vancouver, and Miss M. Fitzgerald,  stenographer.  Mr. Winn, in explaining   the  objects of the commission, stated   that  the scope  of  the inquiry included  state health insurance, mothers' and  widows' pensions, aud public health  nursing.    The  present  workman's  .compensation act.he said,is a species  of state health insurance unto itself,  inasmuch as it provides for surgical  and hospital treatment   in all cases  of accident   The act, therefore,   cie-  ated 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 ailments not only of  the  workman, but also 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 medical prac-  'itioner whose  fees  would be-fixed  by an administrative  board in   consultation with  dociors,  nurses   and  hospitals.  The local people who offered evidence and statistics regarding conditions here were Dr. Kingston,City  Clerk Hutton, Aldermen Miller and  Love, and Mess. E. C. Aenniger and  11. J. Gardner.   The all appeared to  have'been   remedied   had   not  the  Victoria house refused to make  the  changes suggested by the friends   of  prohibition.   A brand new source of  revenue opened before  the  government.    The   sales  from "ihe government dispensaries  during   a  recent  month went as high as  at   the rate  of two and a half millions per  year.  When the house meets in   February  we shall learn just   what the profits  of this neat business for the year has  been. It will certainly have run into  wejj the thousands of dollars.    The  new  role of "bartender to the  people   of  British   Columbia"    has   been   too  profitable to slip away   through the  mere protest of the   British   Columbia prohibiiionists. But we shall see  later what the people of British Columbia may have to say to the  gov-  ernment./whodid not fear to thwart  the public as to this reform  and  to  so   legislate   as-to make the reform  less effective.  The present government "is not  under responsibilities as to this  measure, some one may say. That  is true, very true. The measure is in  the hands of administrators who are  not specially interested in its success. But will this "take the-brat-  away-it's-none-of-mihe" policy pay  when election day comes" round  We shall see. v .

Meanwhile the farmers of Ontario  have   surprised   the   politicians by  electing a majority of the   members  of the provincial legislature who are  pledged   to   the principles  of   the  United Farmers' organization. Their  leader,   Mr. Drury,   is  to  be   their  premier. He'himself h-is never held  political  office,   and   many   of   his  cabinet are in liks case.    It  will   be  interesting " to   see what sort of ad  ministration    the   farmers'   government provides.    Their platform, except  that   it . advocates'probibition  and the initiative  and  referendum,  is not particularly radical, and their  leaders disclaim   any   revolutionary  or Utopian aims.  But, since they did  not tbemsel ves expect so complete a  victory, tbetr-program was not very  carefully prepared in advance.'---<We.  must await the act������ lu processes   of  legislation to see by what means the  Ontario   farmers   propose   to   bring  about   the   "good government, stability, efficiency, economy, and   fair  and equal enforcement ol the   law"  that their party demands. ���������  The eJIealth Insurance  Commission" Seeks Information From Electors Relative to Proposed  Legislation  A Family Gift  The best gift for one's family, one  =vell thought of during the whole  year, is a.year's subscription to   the  At a time when   old   political  division are fading out, and new lines  of   cleavage,   often   following    the  boundaries of class or of occupation,  are beginning to appear, it is   interesting to speculate   on the   probable  course that the great farming popu  lation of the country   will take, says  the Youth's Companion.

But it has always   been   impossible to control the agricultural   vote.  The farmer is the most independent  citizen that exists. He is usually his  own  master: he  comes nearer than  anyone to producing for himself and  his famiiy all the necessaries of life;  he thinks much and independently;  he is less subject than the   town the  town dweller and   the craitsman   to  the Infection of crowd or class   opin  nn.

Two  coaches passed over his leg3, cutting  one off about the knee and the other  was so badly  crushed that   it   will  have to be amputated.    The   brake-  man, who is a returned soldier, and  the American   immigration   officer  rendered efficient first aid until   the  arrival  of  Dr.   Kingston from   this  city.    The injured man was brought  back to this  city abd placed in tbe  Grand Forks hospital    One   of   his  legs has since been   amputated, and  the other will also have to be  taken  off   as   soon   as he  gains sufficient  strength to stand the operation.    At  present his condition is  reported to  aJTgdbcl as can   be" expected   under  the. circumstances.  Radigau ha3 been working at   the  Lucille Dreyfus mine near Danville.  He spent Saturday in this  city   and  intended to take the   train  here  in  the   evening   for .Republic, but arrived at the station too late. He then  got Stanley Davis to take him  Danville in bis motor car, and   they  ar  rived   at that   place   ahead of    the  train.    Radigan   bad   just   finished  puttidg bis baggage in the   baggage-  car .when   the   train started to pull  out.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 19. 1.919  The world safely  weathered   the ,17th  instant, as we  confidently expected   it  would.  To our certain knowledge, it has never  been  destroyed during our lifetime,and when it does  decide to suspend operations  permanently, it  "is not at all likely that it will engage fake star-  gazers and sensational  newspapers to  advertise the event.   In some of the large cities the  sensational press featured the predictions  of  a charlatan to such an extent that the excitable and the weak-minded among the  population were panic stricken.    This  is  reported  to have been ^he case in Montreal.    It would  be  a good   thing  if the sensation   mongers  among the daily press had two-thirds .of their  newsprint cut off so that they.'.-wo'uld be  compelled  to  confine   their pages to'legitimate  news.    How they do love a sensation!    Were  it not for the fear of being   deta'ned   indefinitely, some  of  them   would   go to  hell for a  weird and supernatural story.  The provincial parliament will meet at Victoria next month. It is a pretty safe wager  that it will be the last session before a general election is held.  It is reported from Ottawa that Sir llobert  Borden is to be the next ambassador from  Great Britain to Washington, and the politicians at the capital are having a lively time  deciding on his successor as prime minister.  Conditions in official circles there are still  unsettled, and the next few da}rs may bring-  forth many surprises.  Attention is drawn by the Omaha Bee to a  little incident occurring at a New York rail  way station A\hich it regards as of some-lm  portance and significance. King. Albert of  Belgium was about to depart on his continental tour when certain newspaper reporters  sought to speak with him. The third assistant  secretary of state, from Washington, refused  permission, but the king wasted "no time in  overruling thin functionary; and spent some  moments chatting with the newspaper boys.  King Albert, says the Omaha paper, thus  taught the representative of the government  of what is often styled the world's greatest  democ.iacy a lesson. The newspaper reporter  is the most direct connection, the .shortest cut,  from the king to the people. Albert knows  this, for he was once a reporter. The -United  States administration seems to have forgotten  the fact. While the war was on the newspapers of the United States_and   Canada   pa-  not conclusive, and may be misleading, especially if .compared with other totals where^ "no  real basis for comparison has been established."- The mountain system, glaciers, snow  fields and widely variant precipitation make  the power question in British Columbia an  unique one and render difficult comparisons,  with other provinces. There are already about  250,000 horsepower developed, also estimated  on a twenty-four hour basis. J'^or various reasons a number of the possibilities on such  rivers as the Eraser, Thompson, Skeena and  Nass can not be economically developed under present conditions. Moreover,vit Was not  possible to make adequate estimates of the  power potentialities of the more notherly portions of the province. -As*the country becomes  more developed considerable additional power  may be found to be" available.  The author of the roport, Arthur V. White,  deals fully with the relationship between water as a source of power and its use for domestic and municipal supply, agriculture, irrigation, navigation, fisheries, mining, forestry  and riparian rights. These problems are too frequently neglected in surveys of waterpowers.  The development of the connlry's -natural re  sources can- best be carried on when each Of  them is given adequate consideration. It is a  mistake to concentrate on any single resource  such as waterpower, or the soil,* or the forests  to the exclusion of all others. They are hatur-  ally interdependent.  As every engineer knows, it is necessary to  obtain records of stream flow, precipitation  and natural storage for a period of years to arrive at average conditions, before attempting  to estimate the amount of- potential power.  Power possibilities at present must be based  on the minimum flow of stream. In manv in-  stances, however,artificial storage may be used  economically and perform a double function  of reducing floods and increasing the amount  of available power.  The report deals at length with historical  aspects of water legislation in British Columbia. A useful feature is the chronological key  to water legislation in British Columbia from  1858 to.1917. The chapter devoted to power  developments discusses the subject from an  historical standpoint which adds materially to  value and interest.     '  Detailed descriptions are given of the topo-  graphicol features on the larger watersheds,  such as the Columbia and Eraser and Mackenzie river systems, Vancouver Island and  Mainland Pacific coast.  A large amount of stream flow data has  been assembled and carefully analyzed. Meteorological data has been compiled with similar  care, a feature thatadtls much to the value of  the report from a technical standpoint.  A convenient set of hydraulic conversion  tables as well as a list of benchmarks on the  Vancouver Islam! and Pacific Mainland coasts  =^  dren's Eyes  Several weeks of long winter evenings are ahead of us.

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  can 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.  ������$  a  a  ff*  i^^fm  J&&&VM-  PS    S3  :g-  ca ~C ,-^.-" i r- '^i': rr -. :^ i tf ^* til t^^ ViT/i^i"*j^'.'
