FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1919 ...  GET IN ON THE GROUND FLOOR  "Victory Bonds Feature Markets," was a  newspaper heading which summarized the previous day's dealings on the Montreal stock  exchange on October 16. The item went on  , to say that Victory bond transactions had totalled nearly $2,255,000, at premiums for long  terms bonds ranging between 3 and 5 percent,  while for short term issues the premium was  between 1 and 3 percent. Transactions in 1933  Victory bonds alone reachtd a shade less than  $1,515,000 at a premium of 3| per cen*}.  A more extraordinary proof of the soundness of Victory bonds as an investment than  these figures for a single day in the financial  metropolis of Canada could conceived. Bear  in mind that_ the trading took place on the  eve of the flotation of a large new issue���������the  1919 Victory loan. Were there the slightest  lack of confidence in the gilt-edged character  of the investment, the prospect of a new bond  issne would tend to depress the market. On  the contrary it has boomed it. The reason is  plain. In the great money markets of the  world Canadian bonds are regarded as the  safest and most remunerative security available to the ordinary investor. The new 1919  loan gives a chance for everybody in Canada  to get in on the ground floor, as they say on  the curb.  have to be abandoned, iu whole or in part, it  will be because the Canadian with money to  invest (however modest in amount), fails to  realize the present paramount duty of subscribing liberally to 1919 Victory bonds.  ifz  :=^  Conservation of our resources, was never so  necessary as today. During the war we were  necessarily wasteful, as all considerations of  expense were subordinated to one supreme  object. But this waste not only can not continue; it must be made good so far as possible.  If the experiments now under way in both  Canada and the United States should prove  successful, and the cost not be prohibitive, a  large development is to be anticipated in connection with the protection of forest lands by  means of aircraft.  There, must be some illicit stills on the  moon. Lately the moonshine has been visible  to the naked eye.  Looting After tfie Cliildren's Eyes  Several weeks of long winter evenings are ahead of us. With the  use of artificial light, it is a trying time for the eyes. If slight defects already exist, a dim or unsteady light will greatly, aggravate  the situation. This is particularly true among children, whose vitality and power of resistance is much lower than grown ups. Inflamed lids, styes, headache and watery eyes are almost sure indications of some sort of eye trouble. If your child has trouble with  his eyes,-bring him in and let us examine his eyes.  A.

Forward  BRITAIN STILL ON RATIONS  ��������� As most people are aware, Great Britain is  still on rations in respect of many of her most  important articles of consumption. What does  this mean? It means clearly that there is still,  nearly a year after the war closed, a large un-  supplied market in the motherland, of which  Canada produces the necessary surplus of  meat and grain to meet. It means a wide  open opportunity, so soon as shipping is restored to something like normal conditions.  Canada is one of the countries which the  motherland naturally wishes to favor In her  purchases, but in order to continue as our best  customer she must continue to look for such  vast credits as were made possible by the Victory loads of 1917 and 1918. In keeping the  motherland on our books we are assuring ourselves of an ample outlet for all that we have  to sell. And what is true of Groat Britain is  true of European nations which are anxious  to buy from us, but which the exigencies of  the present situation compel to ask for credit  also.  If these credits, which  mean a great and  profitable  trade  for the  Canadian'producer,  Toronto, Nov. 5.���������[Special to The Sun.]���������  The chairman of the Dominion executive, of  the Victory^ loan today made the following  comments on the success of the campaign to  date:  "The campaign is now practically half finished. The success to date has been due in  large measure to the fact that investors who  have so far purchased bonds have bought more  than they did in previous loans. The fact  that experienced investors, large and small,  have subscribed early and have taken  more bonds than ever before, indicate that  they recognize the attractiveness of the Victory loan as an investment as well as appreciate the patriotic necessity of cleaning up our  war and maintaining Canada's prosperity.  "The total subscriptions reported so 'far aggregate $208,000,000: It must be remembered, however, that this amount includes a very  large proportion of the big subscriptions available, and in order to make a success of the  loan it will be necessary, as in previous years,  that the medium and smaller subsetibers  come forward in great numbers. In the rate  of interest carried by the bonds, namely b\ per  cent, is the same as on the loans issued in the  dark days of the war, all of which are selling  at substantial premiums. As an investment  this loan is particularly attractive from the  standpoint of the small investor, and one of  the gratifying features of the campaign has  been the readiness with which the employees  of industries have taken the loan where they  had the experience of buying  previous loans.  ���������'This is Canada's final financial war effort.  It is not only good business, but good patriotism, for every Canadian to become the owner  of a Victory bond. Let every man and woman  in Canada buy bonds to the limit of their  ability and probable savings of the next ten  months."  10 CENT "CASCARETS"  FOR LIVER AND BOWELS  Cure   Sick    Headache,   Constipation,  Biliousness, Sour Stomach, Bad  Breath���������Candy Cathartic.

The boulders and rock from the canal are  borne away to the stone crusher on  the cliff above Queans-ion, and. converted into material for roadways,  raihoad roadbed and ripnp which  will   line   tho   <-hn**o������   nf   *i->n   canal.

The original survey for the  Niagara development was made in  1914, and the construction work begun in May, 1917. The commission expects to have -the new plant  in working order in 1922. "War conditions handicapped tho engineers,  but this year's operations were begun  on a* gigantic scale. A trip over the  right of way will impress the observer with the vast scope of the  undertaking which, in its completed  state, will cost approximately $27,-  01)0.000.00.  Two miles above the brink of  Niagara Fails a steam dredge is  gnawing away at the channel of the  "Welland Itiver, removing in generov.3  chunks the river bottom and a portion of Hog Island, which guards the  entrance to this historic creek. The  lone dredge and its attendant tugs  are the only pieces of equipment engaged on the entire Niagara development which are not owned by the  Hydro-FJIcctrie Power Commission.  They, with six or seven switch  engines, are the only apparatus in  use on the development which require   steam   in  their   operation.  Even the drills employed on the  rock deposits of the canal right of  way are operated by air, electrically  co :n;>r-.-.**.*������������������& d.

The rocks��������� fro:v> the  excavations, are cast into a trough  opening into ' gigantic steel . jaws  which grind and munch, breaking  the largest pieces into smaller bits  that are carried away on a belt conveyor. A series of crushers reduce  the rocks to a form where they may  be utilized for building purposes and  stored for future use.  Fifty-five miles of railway, all electrified, and tapping five trunk linos,  are required in -the construction  work on the development. On this  railway the commi*j**ion ha3 in operation more electric locomotives than  any railway system in Canada. At  present 2,000 men are employed on  the big job. These men are houc-d  and fed by the commi*3ion. A surgeon, an ambulance and a hospital  maintained by the commi-rrion aro at  the disposal of the employees in c--.Ee  of accident. The adoption of the  newest safety devices has minimized  the clanger of accident on the development, and the commission has  devoted a great deal of time to safety  first propaganda in order to safeguard the men in its employ. About  2,500 acres, or 50 per cent, of the  lands acquired by the commission  for its right of way, have been converted into farms, and the produce  from the farms is sold to the employees of the commission. The commission maintains its own telephone  system on the development, and it  has connections throughout the province. Garages, machine shops and  office buildings line tho right of way.  By establishing its power house at  Queenston the Hydro-Electric Power  Commission is enabled to take advantage of the full drop of both Niagara Falls and the Gorge, a total  drop of 305 feet, affording 100 per  cent, more electric power from the  same amount of water. The largest  electric units in the world. 55,000  horsepower generators, will bo installed in tho power house, to produce electrical energy for distribution  throughout the  Province of Ontario.  This great work is a striking example of the big vision and Initiative  of Sir Adam Beck, under whose direction the commission carries on its  functions. This work is one which  gives the people of Ontario just  cause for pride in achievement.  Discriminating  Two political candidates were discussing the coming local election.

CANADA'S FUTURE  DEPENDS ON LOAN  Steady   Employment   and   Prosperity  Hangs  on   Victory   Loan.  Canada's future prosperity 'depends  to a great extent upon the success of  the Victory Loan. No country can  exist upon trade within its own boundaries. Canada counts on the trade  with Great Britain and other allied  countries to keep the flood of good  times in the country.  The surplus products of the farm  and the factory find their way across  the seas.   The re-venue of the farmer  and   the, manufacturer is  dependent  on this trade relationship being sustained.    The   employment   of   many  hands   depends   on   the  orders   that  come to tlie firm..    The pay envelope  only comes with steady employment  Great   Britain  and  overseas  conn  tries are still desirous or continuing  trade    relations,    but,    overwhelmed  with   war   expenses,   they -must    b-a  given credits for the time being. The  farmer and  the  manufacturer  must  be paid for their products and manufactured articles in cash.   Therefore,  Canada must finance the proposition  to keep the tide of commerce coming  this way.     But in order to have the  money on hand to do this great thing,  Canada must borrow from her people.  The Victory Loan offers bonds to  subscribers paying 5-yfc  per cent, in-  teiest.     The   guarantee   behind   the  Londs makes them an absolutely safe  investment.    Victory   Bonds   are   accepted as collateral at any bank, and  cm  easily   be  turned  into  money  at  a  profit,    it is then to the interests  oi   every  Canadian   to  subscribe   for  all  the Victory  Bonds he can, for it  is profitable, it is patriotic, and it is  accessary   for   the   continued   pros-  ;j--rity of the.country.  CANADA  NEEDS MONEY  Wuv   Expenditures  Still   to   Be  Met  From   Proceeds  ot   Victory  Loan.  The war is over and won; but Canada's main expenditures for war will  not be complete until well on into  1920. The $610,000,000 raised last  year has all been spent, $400,000,00-0  having been largely devoted to soldiers���������to maintaining them, bringing them; home, providing the necessary medical services, training them.  Most of the balance of the loan was  lent to Great Britain to enable her  to buy our surplus products. And  money is still necessary ��������� for soldiers, for providing markets, for our  surplus products, for the needs of  reconstruction. And that.is why another Victory Loan is necessary.  Canada still needs money, and needs  it badly.  A  Good Investment.  Speculation is one thing. Investment is another. The majority of  citizens want an investment, not a  speculation. And they want a safe  investment. Victory Bonds fill that  requirement as does no other investment. Because behind every bond  there is the national wealth of Canada���������a wealth so great that it staggers the imagination.  Canadian Bank Clearings.  That Canada is well able to support the Victory Loan is clearly  shown by the Canadian bank clearings for the current year. They .indicate that the year's total will exceed $15,000,000,000 compared with  $13,776,000,000 in 1918. And the  year's total clearings should be three  times those of 1909.  Must Subscribe More.  Dividing the people of Canada into  ���������hreo classes ��������� the comparatively  ooor,   the   moderately   wealthy,   and  lie   very   wealthy ��������� it   would  seem  nat if contributions to the Victory  i-oaiis  constitute service  to  the na-  iou, the moderately wealthy class is  .uirdiy doing its share. Of the money  lut.scribeU to the Victory Loan 1918,  ���������.-.vo hundred and seventy-one million  loihus were in bonds of $5,000  .uui under, ninety-four millions in  ootids of between $5,000 and $25,-  .HiO, and three hundred and one millions in bonds of $25,000 and over.  Be  true  to yourself.   Buy  Victory  Bonds.  Vou did it before.    You can do it  again.    Buy  Victory Bonds.  Canada pledged her last man and  her last do-lar. Redeem that pledgo  in  Victory  Bonds.  If the lighting were still raging,  you wuuldn'i -hesitate to buy Victory  ���������jowls.  To make the Victory Loan a suc-  i-css ia a national obligation. It may  be that you are the deciding factor.  A Victory bond is every bit as  good as money in the bank and it  pays more intere^i.  tlie Steady  Isn't the news of your  store something like the  news of the whole city?

The reconstruction  period is dawning and we at house  must win that.  Much of the money that Canada  is asking for will be needed to cl'^an  up the war debt. The exp;-nses of  demobilization wero heavy, and there  is still much of it unpaid. Now that  our men are back, let il nol he- waul  that we rc-pudir-ted the debt for  bringing rham back.  .

Many men through disability are  unable to return to their pre-war  occupations. The Department of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment is doing a fine work in training returned  soldiers in trades and professions  that they can earn a living at. and  is following up the training and seeing that they obtain remunerative  employment. The maintaining of this  branch of reconstructive service call3  for much funds, and the Victory Loan  will be used to pay for it as well as  the other purposes.  ii.i.i":- mi.: *!���������;: .i.- r::' Land Settlement Act, enough money is lent to  raturned soldiers to enable them 10  buy and stock a farm. This money  will be repaid at a low rate of interest. The soldier is Ihus givni a  chance ro re-i-nstate himself in civil  life, and production is given a boost.  Of the total amount of the forthcoming loan, $24,000,000 has been  apportioned to finance these soldier-  farmers.  Pensions to the disabled und dependents of cnVi glorious dead, as well  as the authorized graiuities wiil be-  other items on the exp-. n:-;*- sl-e.-i  These are some of the obligations  owing lo the returned soldier who  is   now   in   health.
