The   letter  emphasized the facts.that the cost of  maintaining    the^ .institution   had  greatly   increased   and    that   there  ,- were  a   number   of   children from  ' Grand Forks in the home.  Several other "communications, of  .  o an unimportant nature, were ordered  filed.  In an appropriate speech, the  mayor made the presentation of one  the city's certificates of service to  Pte.

Hull, a roso  lution was adopted ; placing the  council strongly in favor of the city  using a portion of the provincial  courthouse for high school purposes, and it was decided that a  .recommendation embodying this  resolution be forwarded to Premier  Oliver and to the minister of educa  tion.  0. A. S.. Atwood addressed the  council. He said that if some arrangement could be made whereby  he could obtain water from tbe ciiy  for irrigation purposes at a reasonable price, he would not-con.test the  city's application for a water record  on Mili creek. The council seem-d  , to think that such an arrangement  could be made.  The mayor reported what hsd  transpired in police circles since the  last meeting. John Berry had been  appointed special police.  ��������� The matter of (he province policing the city also came up for discussion. A letter from the attorney-  _ general on this subject was read.  He said tbat if the council and police commissioners wished to have  this done, the city would have to  bear the expense. In view of the  altered situati in, the members expressed satisfaction with the present  > policing arrangement;.  The finance committee was instructed to. communicate with R.

'Argu mejit on costs   will :������t-3*ke  place next Wednesday.    -  The big crowd this morning  thronged the supreme^eourt to hear  the opening of the libel suit in which  Hon. John Oliver-sought 850,000  damages for libel against R. T. Elliott, Iv. C. There was a big array  of counsel present as Mr. Justice  Macdonald went.on'the bench. M.  B.'Jackson, K.C ,. was leading counsel for the premier and H A Mac-  Lean, -K.C.',- foj the defence. . ~ . ���������  -..������������������ The- case arose out of some sensa-  tionalhappenirrgs In the legislature  at the close of the last session. Mr.  Elliott had been counsel for a syndicate of Chicago millionaires who  formerly owned ihe Dolly Varden  and was not only objecting streriu  ously to the passage of any more  legislation in British Columbia favoring local shareholders who had  taken- over the mine, but was endeavoring to secure" disallowance  from-Ottawa of an act passed iu  British Columbia more than a year  ago.  Stung at his failure to induce the  legislature to follow his wishes,  Mr.  Elliott   sent   two   telegrams to Victoria.    The   first  was to Hon. John  Oliver   direct.    The  second' head  dressed   similarly,    but   also sent a  copy to J. S. Cowper, M.L. A, from  whom   Dr.   Mcintosh, M.L A.,   ob  tained it and read it to   the    house.  In thus causing il to be   ''published  abroad," Elliott   is  charged   by the  premier with having libelled him.    -  The   premier's   charge   was that  he comments contained in the  tele  grams sent by Elliott   went   beyond  the bounds of permissible criticism.-  The jury were   asked   to   say   that  these comments   or charges   consti  tute a libel against his   public  repu  tati on and private character.  ill     His     Libel      Action j tests being used only in case of doubt.  .-;-. ;������������������:.������������������     -.   . . .

FRIDAY; JULY 2, 1920  The war lias left us with a legacy of phrases  which are embarrassing to modem statesmen,  said Sir John Willison in an address before  the Canadian clab recently. It is not so easy  to make the world "safe for democracy" or to  apply the Sermon on the Mount in social, industrial and political practice. There has been  no regeneration of human nature nor any  goneral infusion of divinity in human institutions. Still he that laboureth, laboureth for  himself, stilt a slothful man hath 'his hand in  his bosom and will not so much as bring it to  liis   mouth  again ��������� and still the^sluggardwho  O * DO -  will not plow- by reason of the cold will beg  in harvest and have nothing. In a new-verse,  Kipling says: -   '  In* the carboniferous epoch we weva promised  abundance for all,  J>y robbing selected Peter to   pay   for collec-  .tive Paul; "  And, though we had  plenty   of  money, there  was nothing our money would buy,  And the Gods of the Copybook Maxims said,  'If you don't work you die.'  We are not going to havs a new world on  now foundations.��������� -Wo have ��������� been laying  the foundations of this civilization for a  thousand years and one is not persuaded that  this generation is wiser than all the generations that have gone before. There is a great  confusion of voices, but one doubts that if in  the multiplicity of counsellors there is wisdom.  'great war, the withdrawal of millions of  men  i from productive pursuits,   disorganization   of  transposition, social  and  political   revolution  and the reaction from the long agony in Europe  I     In Great Britain, according   to  a   govern'  ment commission which has  investigated   the  cost of living and the increasing wages among  One Year (in Canada and Great Rntain) Si.00 workers, the average advance in  retail  prices  One Year (in the United States) 1 \-.() , _���������! ������        ,.

In .France tho average advance  in cost of living was from 84 to 100 per cent'  and in wages 90 per cent. In the United  States food prices have increased 88 per cent  and wages for men 90 per cent and for women  70 percent. In Italy there has been an average increase in the cost of living of 240 per  cent and in wages of 183 per cent. In Germany food prices have increased by 300 per  cent aud wages from 200 to 250 per cent. In  Canada,* occording to the department of labor,  cost of living has increased between 60and 80  percent, but no official statement of the average increase in wages are available. There  are groups of workers in Canada who have  had advances which more than    (fYu ir  crease in the cost of living.. But there are'also  multitudes of workers who have not received  increases equal to the advance,in the cost of  living and who are comparatively poorer than  they were five or six years ago. In. 1914, however, the wages and salaries of railway employees totalled $111,762,972 and in 1918  $152,274,953. In 1919, the first full year ef  the McAdoo increases, it' is estimated that  there was a further advance of 25 or 30 per  cent onm average increase of wages and sal-  aries to Canadian railway employees, ..excluding general officers, of 73.4 per cent. This  represented $35,838,000 annually to the Canadian Pacific, and according to Dr. Eeid, minister of railways, in 1914- the. average yearly  wage of railway employees in Canada was  $700 and in 1919 $14.47.

There are, perhaps, those who may think  that this explains his presence among us.  But even the board of commerce admits that  "business is, in the main, .sound and honest,"  and that "despite the high prices undoubtedly  prevailing profiteering so called, that is the  taking of unjust profits, is not, in the board's  opinion, as common as may have been charged  or claimed." But how seldom are these sentences quoted and how seldom are'the real  causes of. high prices explained. Wages in  many industries have been n'eirly doubled and  wages represent 70 percent of the cost of production. The prices of all food products have  increased tremendously- not. through "proti-  teerint'- among farmers, but throuuh a world  scarcity which was the inevitable result of the I available.  allsto^mindll^-s^oiy of his once having at  empgeSliPeSfsh the late King Edward,then  A Dominion park has been established  along the new Banff-Windermere highway, to  be known as Kootenay park.

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 of a great advertiser vsill 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 Hand  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  W  0  $ju?
