PREMIER ROBERT BORDEN MAKES A STATEMENT, THANKING THE CANADIAN PEOPLE  ' Sir ltobert Borden has issued a statement expressing his satisfaction with the result of the general election, and thanking both Conservatives and  Liberals for the efforts they have made on behalf  of the Union government.    It is as follows:  "The people of Canada have fully realized and  splendidly fulfilled their duty. The Union government will have a majority of at least fifty in the  new parliament. The result of the soldiers' vote is  not yet known, but it may increase the majority to  sixty or more.  "It was not a partisan victory in any sense. If  party lines are to be taken into account it is a triumph as much for L'berals as for Conservatives.  The splendid element of the Liberal party who  worked so strenuously and with such magnificent  results in every province except one are to be congratulated equally with the Conservatives.  "Equally fine was the spirit of the Conservatives,  who, regardless of party affiliations, supported and  elected Unionist-Liberal candidates in many ridings. It was a notable test of democracy. The  Canadian people, after more than three years of  heroic devotion and untold sacrifice, were called  upon to say whether Canada's effort in the war  should be maintained. In the midst of the cam  paign the test of compulsory, military service had  to be applied. No severer trial of the courage,  self-sacrifice and endurance of a democracy was  lever made. Constitutional writers of central Eu-  j rope have predicted during the past quarter of a  j century that under some such test democracy would  ��������� fail.  !     "The Canadian democracy has given a triumph  1 aut refutation to-every such prediction.    The gal-  1 lant men who have returned f.rom   the front after  'glorious  and  heroic  services  to their country in  j France and in Flanders, are especially entitled  to  Canada's grateful thanks for their equally notable  service in the campaign just concluded.    Their  vivid realization of the o^ei mastering issues, their  splendid 'loyalty to their comrades in the trenches,  their complete disregard  of all  minor  considerations, enabled them to exercise a strong influence  upon public opinion, both here and at the front.  "The same is true of the womanhood of Canada.  Tl;eir devotion and self-sacrifice have been wonderful throughout the war and were never more  conspicuous than during the past six weeks. Unworthy appeals were contemptuously rejected and  the higher considerations alone inspired their endeavor, which contributed notably to the result.  "And, indeed, throughout the country, leaders  of public opinion were responsive to the greatness  of th������ appeal. The clergy, the teachers ih- the universities and in the public schools, men in every  walk of life, who in ordinary occasions-took no active part in party struggles, were constrained by  the country's need and by the stern call of duty to  throw themselves into a contest which concerned  the national duty and the national honor.  "Canada's battleline is held three thousand miles  away by men who went forth gladly and freely to  fight, and perhaps to die, in order that peace might  reign within our borders. Many of them have  been in the trenches for more than two years; they  look for aid and support to their country which  sent them forth under the pledge of its honor.  I Some of them will spend their fourth Christmas  | beyond the seas. Canada will now- send them the  'message for which they have longed; and it will  bring joy and comfort to every heart among them.  I "'But that message will bring rejqicing not only  to ihe Canadian army corps, but to the mother  country and to every dominion of the Britannic  commonwealth. To them and to all the allied nations it proclaims Canada's invincible and unalterable determination to maintain her effort and to  take her part until the beast of German militarism'  shall have been subdued and such victory achieved  as will bring assured peace to a war-devastated  world."

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 28,  1917  The operation of every railway system in  the United States during the period of the  war by the American vovernment, which was  announced from Washington yesterday, is undoubtedly the most stupendons industrial revolution the world has ever witnessed. But we  are living in an era \ylien when gigantic deeds  and undertakings are daily being performed,  and President Wilson's proclamation did not  create as much excitement as the news of the  wreck of a mail coach would have caused one  hundred years ago. We .simply .take it for  granted that these history-making things must  come as a natural sequence. On the success  of the government control of the transportation systems during the war will probably de,  pend.the complete'nationalization of the railways in the States after peace has been declared. This much has already Been hinted  at, and we make the confident prediction that  the American railways will never again come  under the management of prvate corporations. After the people learn of the benefits  to be-derived from public ownership of the  roads, they will not permit such a move short  of a revolution. ��������� c'  mu  lt is not very nice to be referred to as  tators and copyists, but in the matter of solv-  . ing the transportation problem of this country  we think that Premier Borden .could follow  President Wilson's lead without any loss of  dignity. Such a niov'e" "would be" "a just rebuke to the railways that are' now raising  freight and passenger rates. The Canadian  railways, practically built by the people in the  first place, are more arrogant than those in  any other part of the world. They dominate  legislatures and treat the people as vassals.  The majority of them have less conscience  than a highwayman. For the government to  take them over at a fair valuation would be  but an act of justice to the Canadian people.  It is not easy to see why tbe Socialists  should be opposed to the world war. It is  bringing the conditions which their tenets of  belief is supposed to embody into actual existence as rapidly as it possibly can.  The next local excitement will be the municipal election. The indications are that  there will be a contest this year, as there appears to be an element in the city desirous of  seeing "fresh blood" in the council next year.  What strength tliis element possesses has not  yet been ascertained.  The Sun wishes everybody in the world a  Happy New Year, excepting, of course, Kaiser  Wilhelm and the Sultan of Turkey and their  vassal kinglets.  The report of the minister of agriculture of  France, which shows a total cereal crop of less  than one-half of that for a normal year, emphasizes the necessity that' Canada should  strain every 'effort to provide food needed  overseas for the armies and the populations  behind the fighting lines. There is a large  deficit among all the cereals with the exception of barley. Despite very great efforts to  maintain production, the native wheat supply  of France is the poorest on record for the last  | tals (1 quintal = 220/46.lbs.), as compared with  ,86,919,050 quintals in 1913, 76,937,065 quintals in 1914,-60,6'30,200 quintals in 1915,  and  55,767,320 quintals in 1916. As,a consequence  of the greatly reduced production of food   on  the farms of France, the people-of the republic may have still further to reduce their con-  sumdtion of bread.    The  bread card system  has been adopted in Paris and the other large  centres and the amount of wheat fioui\ which  may legally be used in bread is limited to ' 80  per-cent. France has  already  made   tremendous sacrifices, and in this time of need is dependent more than ever before upon the people of North America for food.    The call has  come to us to ensure that so far as is possible  supplies will be forthcoming in.order that the  soldiers need not have their rations reduced below the efficiency minimum   and  that  thousr  ands of  women and  children ,may be saved  from  terrible  suffering and even from actual  starvation.    There are  available for the people of Canada  numerous 4 wholesome   substitutes for wheat flour.    Let us'remember that  the waste of even a spoonful of' flour  means  depriving our allies of food which is  urgently  needed  now and  which may be desperately  needed before the next harvest, unless we are  prepared to do bur utmost to reduce our own  consumption of wheat and. make  greater  use  than we are making at present of substitutes.  <T  V  We are showing a choice'Stock of goods- suitable for CHRISTMAS GIFTS.'

"The Canadians in France,"  A Great War Map  Canadian homes will no longer have  difficnlty ��������� in following the Canadian  troops in France. There has just been  issued a map of the European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the Canadian forces  first landed in France. It has been  made especially for the great Canadian weekly, the Family Herald and  Weekly Star of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to Candian enterprise.  It is a marvel of detail and yet not  crowded. It is in four.colors and  about 2Jx3^feet and folded into - a  very'neat cover, about 5x10 inches.  -The map is surrounded by a border of  the- regimental badges and coat of  arras of nearly every battalion that  left Canada, from .Halifax to Vancouver. Every important point can  be recognized at once. That portion  of the map covering France is in a  soft color with names of towns and  battle scenes in black, easily recognizable. The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most complete aud accurate in detail. The map  could not be produced, except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will use, at less than two dollars a  copy, yet it .can be had absolutely  free with The Family Herald.  The publishers of The Family Herald and Weekly Star for several  months back have been fighting hard  against the necessity of increasing  their subscription rates; but eventu  ally had to come bo it like most other  papers. The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate SI.25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate. Many expected a  much larger-increase in the subscription price of The Family Herald, and  are surprised at the small extra  amount charged.  The enormous circulation of The  Family. Herald arid Weekly Star  should he still greater when this offer  becomes known.  PSCTURES  AND PICTURE FRAMING ~  Furniture  Made   to Order.  Also Repairing of all Kinds.

A few drops of this new ether compound applied directly upon a tender,  aching corn should relieve the soreness instantly, and soon the entire corn,  root and all, dries up and can be lifted  out with the fingers.  This new way to rid one's feet of  corns was introduced by a Cincinnati  man, Who says that, while freezone ia  sticky, it dries in a moment, and simply shrivels up the corn without inflaming or even irritating the surrounding tissue or skin.  -Don't let father die of Infection or  lockjaw from whittling at his corns,  but clip this out and. make him try it.
