New  .. York Tribune, is worth quoting. He  saysj -   ���������    . f- ���������  "Last April on the ehell-scarred  slopes of Vimy Ridge, Canada at the  front gave proof of her courage',' her  devotion, her strength!'The 'Maple  -Leaf,' planted on one -of the -great  bulwarks of German tyranny, * in  France, was a final evidence -of'the  attitude of one-half of North Acoeri-  ���������>*^to the Boche threat to civilization.  "Before Vimy the Canadians had  borne their part nobly.

"The United Stales will coneratu-  Jateand pay just tribute to a neigh-  ' boring democracy for , its decision.  In a time of momentary depression'  Canada has cheered all of *us. In an  hour of depresslor. Canada has  shown the road.of,courage and.-.,yic^  tory ' illuminated "by the spirit of  self-sacrifice ands devotion.  '  "She has been "faithful to' her  dead. To those of her sons murdered as well as those slain in fair  fight. Germany proclaimed thedooua  of the British empire. She forecasted  tbe dissolution of the' great "structure, she gambled on the selfisB'ness  of the "democracy beyond the seas  that own 'British' allegiance.  "Australia responded at Gallipoli;  Canada in Flanders, South Africa  amidst the ruins of German empire  in Africa, and after the army the  people of Canada.have,by their voice  endorsed the action of their sons.  '-'We inv'the United States look  with admiration and gratitude to  our northern neighbor.

Contemptibles,'' found  their glory and their grave in  October and November, 1914. - :  ,,     "Of the  Canadians at  the   front  there was   no question.    They   had  seen  the German thing as   it  was.  Their   comrades   had]   been 'gassed  - and crucified.' Their fellow-Canadians had fought cleanly and    bravely  against a barbarism which expressed  itself  in the methods and in .tricks  which were beneath the aontemptof  white men,, and below   the level- of  savages.  "Canada   at  the  front knew the  German, but what of Canada behind  'the   front,   three   thousand   "miles  away?    Would that  line   hold,.loo?  Well, she world has its answer now .  "The   politician   doubted.    The  weak, the weary, the conquered and  the disloyol   spread   their  forecasts  and proclaimed the outcome. ' They  are answered; so are doubting  politicians and faint-hearted patriots the  world over.  "As the American democracy  found itself by re-electing Lincoln in  1864, the Canadian democracy has  justified . democracy and itself in  1917 by re-electing for the war, by  accepting the man and the method  which alone promise victory.  "It is a stirring thing, this victory  of democracy in Canada over ail the  forces which make for surrender  and for worse than surrender.  "The voice of thefirst allied "electorate to be heard in many, many  months is a sgn for all allied statesmen to observe and  heed.  "Meantime, for,, those ' at 'home,  Canada has also pointed a duty and  furnished an example:'the people of  Ca,nada have   once   more  supplied  the proof politicians   might   always  expect if they had faith.    But they  never have faith, .because  they   are  invariably unworthy of  the   people  whom they represent.   To have won  Cambrai aud   lost   Cunada   would  have been an allied disaater..^o have  won Canada and lost Cambrai  is  a  victory beyond question and beyond  dispute.  We did not   capture Richmond in 1864, but in electing   Lin-  coin   the  north   won.the civil war."  This war, like that of half a century  ago, can only be lost by th'qse   back  of the front, and Canada has demonstrated   thai   behind  the lines the  spirit is .as uncoutjuered and indomitable as in the first line trenches of  France and Belgium."  An adjourned meeting of the city  council was held in ^ the council  chamber at 2 o'clock on Monday  afternoon for the purpose of advancing the temporary loan bylaw.  The. mayor and all the aldermen  were present.  . A letter was read from the city"  health officer, who drew attention  to the number of old buildings and  shacks near the city hall,.creating a  menace to the* public health. He  recommended that the same be condemned and removed.  A letter from S. -T. Hull, manager  of the Grand Forks Tovvnsite com  pany, stated "that he had been au  thorized by his company to /make a  street allowance,in block 41, plan  72, and to have the same registered.  Rev.

Lady Sclater hopes that publication will stimulate further effort.  The letter was sent to her war   hospital workroom at  10' Pont   street,  London, S.W. It is as follows:(  In Hospital, May 27, 1917.-  Dear Madam:���������Some time ago I  had the pleasure of visiting,your  depot. Since then it has been my  misfortune to be in various field  ambulance C. C. stations and hospi  tals. I have,   therefore,   had   some  chance to judge of  the far-reachiog  effects   of   your work.    I  can   not  Canadian | help feeling that you who are working so hard at home, andgettiug so  little thanks or praise for all you do,  perhaps hardly realize   the   comfort  and pleasure you give thousands  of  suffering, weary,  sore  men, or   the  relief   your   bandages   and   splints  bring.

May'I tell you a couple of   things  I've heard said.    A   Canadian from-  Vimy   was   brought -into the  bed  next mine; not very bad,   but  very  H. F. Broad writes to a friend in  this piiy from somewhere in Palestine- as follows:   ��������� ��������� "  "I  am -just -back   after a pretty  strenuous conple ,of   weeks (see papers), and I'haven't had a wash for  weeks... We are back a  few miles to  refit, aud I don't  know   what   will  happen after that; but we have had  quite a good  show here lately.    We  are well out of the desert  now   and  in laud   much   like' the dry belt of  British   Columbia)    but    very   few  mountains. The country  is   getting  green, and with a good   rain  ought  to be passable. At present it'is more  like hell than the Holy Land.   The  Turk got it rather'in   the  neck; but  he is the finest trench digger of   the  war. His trenches, if we held them,  would   never   be   taken.    Ho  digs  down ta trench twelve  oi    fourteen  feet deep aud two feet wide, aud lots  of our   men   are  too   fat   to   walk  along them.    Geoffery, I am sorry  to   say,   is  in  the  hospital again.  Must be pretty   badly crocked    up,  as he never seems to get out  of   the  hospital for very long."  .Washington, Jan. 3.���������American  fighting forces must be despatched  to Europe with tne least possible  delay incidental to training and  equipment, Col. House's mission to  the allied council recommended.  The commission also stated that  speeding up systematic co-ordination in shipbuilding is a primary  requisite to the whole unity of effort of the military, naval and economic situation so essential between  the United States and the allies.  The recommendations mean that  hereafter the allies will co-operate  and the training period will doubtless be shortened. Keports show  that the commission has succeeded  in its purpose of reaching a definite  plan for the prosecution of the  war.  VICTORY LOAN CONTRIBUTION IN PROVINCE  The  people of   British Columbia  subscribed   $17,877,642.50   to   the  Victory   loan, and  this  is the   net  amount of new money actually subscribed by people living in the province. It does not inclndc   any   conversions of previous  issues; it   does  not include the sum of 8439,350 subscribed by   the   provincial   government; and  it does not include   any  allocations to British Columbia of a  proportion of subscriptions by   east-  em   firms   having   branches in the  province,    nor   proportions  of   the  sums  subscribed   by   employees of  railway i companies  and  other corporations  by   special   arrangement  with   their   employers.    In    other  words, it is the naked   net   amount  not padded as it might have been to  boost the contribution from   British  Columbia.

It is the  most comprehensive plan   for  encouraging thrift that any   government  has  ever put forth. Briefly, the plan  provides  for  thrift stamps, which cost' 25  cents  each, and  for war-savings stamps, which cost from $4.12  ���������to $4.23 each, according to the month in 1918  in which they are bought.    When you buy a  thrift stamp, you receive with it  a  card  that  has   spaces   for  that one and  fifteen other.  When you have bought the whole sixteen and  stuck them on the card, you can exchange the  card for a war-savings stamp by  paying   the  difference between the $4 that the eard represents and the current value of the stamp, which  is $4.12 this month and one cent more arnonth  for the rest of 1918.  On January   1, 1923, the  government will redeem it for  $5.   With  the  war-savings   stamp  you receive a   certificate  that has twenty spaces.    If you fill all those  spaces with war-savings  stamps this  month,  for example, you will have paid $82.40 to the  government. On January 1, 1923, the "government will redeem the certificate by paying you  $100. That is, the certificate bears 4 per cent  interest, compounded quarterly.   The 25-cent  thrift stamps do not begin to bear interest until you   have  sixteen of them, aud havo exchanged them as explained above.   Although  the investment does not mature until January  1, 1923, postmasters will redeem  any  certificate after January 1, 1918, at the cost to  the  purchaser plus one cent a month for each war1  name signifying a popular fertilizer,  The war has its grim jokes.. For example,  the case of the German merchant in Barcelona who gave a Spanish sea captain- a check  for seven thousand dollars on a New York  bank and told him to bring back the" money  in gold. The captain, when he found he' could  not take gold out of, invested the  seven thousand dollars in Liberty loan bonds,  which he carried back to the? wa" ting Ger-  maa.

M\m  L  I  CAUSES AND REMEDY  " Providing for Honest  Things, Not Only in the,  Sight of the Lord But Also in the Sight of Men."���������  II Cor. 8:21.  (PART THREE.)  BY C. E. STEWART.  Men's Hearts Failing Them  Over 1800 years ago a great man  lived and died for humanity. He rose  from the dead a Spirit Being, was exalted to God's right hand, and given  all power in heaven and earth. Jesus  declared he would come again and  take unto himself his great power and  reign for a thousand years���������for the  anbj ligation of evil and the uplift of  the people. While this mighty One  was on eartn he told his disciples that  down in the end of the age, when'this  "time of trouble" begins to brew,  difficulties so strangely perplexing  would arise that the leaders and captains of industry and thought would  be in distress. Tne people at large  naturally look to thoir leaders and lawgivers to supply remedies for all their"  social troubles.    The financial and re  ligious  'kings  )>  are   therefore   grow-  ingly anxious concerning the outcome.  There   is a soul sickness  or   religious  apathy   that   is  appalling, which   is  startling the doctors   of  divinity, because they can not meet the demands  made of them nor cure  the    malady,  and they are just about to be  repudiated.  The doctors of finance   are   admitting   their    irnpotency;  wages are  necessarily going up; commodities   go  up to meet the increased cost of   production; labor demands and gets more  pay to make toberable   the   increased  cost of living; commodities   again   ad  vance���������ditto   labor.    This    has been  going on for years.    "Shjlock"  must  have his pound of llesh, and trie whole  economic fabric of civilization is   getting top-heaAy���������and something   must  break.     As  a   consequence,    "men's  hearts are failing them for fear of the  things coming  upon   the  earth���������dis  tress   of   nations   with perplexity."  Each'different element  of  humanity,  as the waves of a vast sea, is throwing  itself  against  each   other  wave, rind  the ebb and in-rush of   the   tides   of  human passion are lashing against the  shores   and   bulwarks  of society, endangering the stability thereof.   (Luke  21:20 28; Hebrsws 12:25-29.)  Business hums always on an advancing market; if the market breaks  business is dull. Therefore the market is "better" when stocks and bonds  i  aud foodstuks go up. Mr. Commer  cialism is in quite a dilemma over the  situation���������puzzled to know how to  keep the markets on a perpetual ad  vance (the U.S. federal reserve law  acting as a brake to prevent "pre  pared panics"), and at the same time  keep on advertising the mistruths that  they   are   "better"  when    they   are  worse!  Supply  and   Demand Not a  Factor  There are a great many   things attributed to the cause of   high   prices  One class accuses   another of an end  less effort to shift  the   responsibility.  The "inexorable" Jaw of   supply   and  demand has cea.sed to   be ��������� inexorable.  No less a personage  than   Robert W.  Childs, in charge  of the   goverhment  investigation   of   the  food situation,  says that food prices have   nothing to  do with the supply and   demand; that  the market is being manipulated, and  he is backed up   by   prominent   men.  The war comes in for its share of   the  blame.    The   speculators   are merely  taking advantage of. the war; they see  the   demands   the war will make for  certain things, and these things   they  buy up and corner, and let loose when  they get good and ready.  That stocks " and   bonds and food ���������  stuffs are in the hands of giant trusts,  who manipulates the  markets, just as  the  potter  moulds  his  clay, there is  no doubt; the rapid   and    widespread  fluctuations aud the harmony between  the exchanges is proof of this.    What  appears to be "erratic"   to   the   outsider is not really so; they send prices  up   and   down almost at will.    Their  manipulations include the making of  a profit when their wares decline���������it is  the liquidation process   that  squeezes  out the little fish. Panics are  always  profitable to the stock gambler.    We  all remember the "rich men's  panic"  of about eight years ago,   precipitated  by Wall street, which, if   the   wires  had been cut, tho outside world would  not have received a quiver. Formerly,  every now and then there would bo a  panic to relieve the   top heaviness   of  tho markets; but tho  federal   reserve  law acts as a highly charged   electric  wire to hinder the financier from pre-  ciwitating another.panic���������he can't let  go-���������and    now   Shylock is quaking in  his   boots;   he sees that in extracting  his    "'flesh"   he   is   going   to   draw  "blood1'���������and that means death.  , To get this unlimitod.-control, which  is now slipping   from his  grasp, Shy  look    has   schemed  and exercised his  brains and learned   to "work" 'money  for gain, as the housewife  kneads   her  dough 'for  bread.     Back   in 1873,he  performed one of his greatest  feats���������  he perpetrated a fraud in the demone  tization of silver. He pulled the   wool  over the eyes of congress,   the  senate  and the president, and   turned a piece  of legislation to his own profit.  Sena  tors Blaine, Conkling, Voorheea    and  many   others, and. President   Grant,  who signed the bi[l  demonetizing  sil  ver, all admitted they did   not   know  they were sweeping aside one-half the  valuation   of   the   world's   metal for  money.   We give this as a fifty cause  of high prices.. The awful ness and the  far-reaching ^effects of this   legislation  is concisely set forth in    Pastor   Rns  sell's book,  "The Battle of Armaged  don," pages 385 \ 11, "where he shows  it came about in   fulfillment  o������    pro-'  phecy, and that it would never   be re  monetized.  Is Gold a Menace?  Most people are hungry for gold,  and will take all they can get. And  from the Bible viewpoint it matters  little whther they have the gold or  are determined to -have it.

It might be hard   -to   comprehend," but' if" a sack of   flour cost a  year' ago two dollars in   gold standard  cu.rrency, and    today   costs four  dollar's, we   can    say   that either wheat  has doubled in price or that gold   has  lost its purchasing power  by one half,  because it takes twice as much gold to  "go the same distance. The uninitiated  ' refer to it as an advance in wheat, but  $ the expert financier, conversing in the.  financier's   language.'   refers   to it as  the   rapid   depreciation   of   the gold  metal.  If gold is being  gradually  changed  to   a   merchantable  commodity, like  wheir, and the United States becomes  the dumping ground for all .the  gold  in the world, is it not plain that gold  will decrease in value?   It isno secret  that Scandinavian and Latin countries  do not want gold.    The gold   of   the  world is   88,000,000,000���������and   over  half   of   it   is in the United States.  James B. Morrow, in   a   copyrighted  article in the Cincinnati Weekly   Enquirer, of December 28, .1916. shows  some are theorizing how   the   United  States can get rid of its excess of gold,  which   means   that   Shylock   sees if  business returns  to normal, or below,  bo will have a lot of gold "loafing" in  his   vaults   and   for him to allow his  money to lie idle is unthinkable.    Wo  .do not know exactly what is  causing  gold to cheapen; but whatever it is, it  Is   a   potent   factor  in   today's high  prices.  We now hear of millions after millions of gold metal leaving the United  States for Japan.  Those who-are   not  onto the tricks of "frenzied   finance"  are alarmed over it; but, if  we  could  look behind   the scenes we would, in  .all probability, see Skylock smiling np  .his sleeve.     It   is   a matter of public  ::print that a certain class of men have  -.-.���������been alarmed the way gold  from   the  Eastern countries has   been   pouring  into the pockets of Uncle  Sam.    Un  V der date of June 6 tho caption   of   a  ' Washington   press     dispatch     says:  ."Healthy Business Conditions Seen  as Gold Gain Ceases." Why are we  afraid of gold!'

Did God make a mistake when he enriched the earth so   bountifully   with  the yellow and white metals'?    ���������  (Concluded next week.) -  If Your Boy Goes to the Front  He has twenty-nine . chances ^ of  coming home to one chance of being  killed.  He has ninety-eight chances of  recovering from a -wound to two  chances of dying.  He has only .one chance in 500 of  losing a limb.  He will live five years longer be  cause of physical training.  Pie is freer from disease in the  army than in civil life.  He has better medical care at  the  front than at home.  In other wars from ten to fifteen  men died from disease to  one from  bullets. ,.  In-this war one man dies from disease to every ten from bullets.  It will take virtually all the labor  of-the country to do the work di  rectly or indirectly needed for the  armies. When you save you stop  setting up your personal demand tor  goods against   the demand   of   the  "The Canadians in France,'  A Great War Map  ' Canadian homes-will no longer have  difncnlty   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 2������x3&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  arms   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 re-,  turned military experts as most   complete aud accurate in detail. The map  could not be produced, except in such  lar^e quantities as The Family Herald  wiU   use, at  less  than two dollars a  copy, yet it can   be   had   absolutely  free with The Family Herald.  The publishers of The Family Her  aid   and   Weekly   Star   for   several  months back have been fighting  haro  against   the   necessity' of   increasing  their subscription   rates, but  eventu  ally had to come to it like most  other  paper's.    The increase, however, is  a  mere trifle���������twerfty five cents  a year,  making   their   new   rate $1.25���������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 and Weekly Star  should he still greater when this offer  becomes known.
