Sipartments Address a
Large Audience -- Inspect Public Works in
The public meeting in tbe Em
press theater on Monday nigbt was
very largely attended, tbe house be
ing filled to its lull capacity, aod
the large audience seemed to be in
perfect accord with the speakers of
the evening.
Fred Clark acted as chairman of
the meeting, and introduced tha
speakers witb brief but appropriate
Owing to the number  of promi«
nent speakers present, E. C. Henniger,  our  local   member,  cut. his
speech   almost   to  the  vanishing
point. This was the fint lime in the
history of the city when three prominent ministers of the government
had visited us at a time when tbere
was no  prospeot of ao   election.
There would be no election until
tbe government bad lived out its
statutory life.  The ministers   were
making the1 present tour merely in
order to get in touch with conditions
in the province aod to find out at
first hand tbe wishes of the electors.
Concerning the article contributed
to the looal opposition paper by W.
K. Esling at the lime Mr. Bowser
visited our-city, Mr. Henniger characterised it as "antiquated  bunk. "
He had carried out all tbe promises
he bad made  during the  election,
and   all the pledges of the governs
ment  were being carried out.   As
everybody in the valley were aware,
the promises made regarding the
local irrigation system were  being
fulfillrd.   The speaker believed the
moderation aot was a good act, if
given a fair test and  strictly   en*
forced.   There had   been  making
and drinking of wine ever since the
days of Noah. There were still some
Noabs  in the  world) and in   his
opinion there would always  be a
Hon.   Dr.   VV.   H.   Sutherland,
minister of public works, explained
that be bad but recently aesumed
the public works portfolio aod t.-at
he was going through the country
to familiarize  himself with   the
needs of tbe different districts and,
to  inspeot the   work being done.
In company witb A. VV. Campbell,
federal commissioner of highways,
he intended to go over, tomorrow,
the  fifteen miles of the Cascade*
Rossland section of  tbe transproM
vincial   highway  constructed   last
summer. Good roads was a publio
necessity, and Mr.   Campbell had
told him that British Columbia bad
better roads tban any  other  prov-
ince in  Conada.   Good roads was
ona of the best assets tbat the prova
ince  could have.   He believed in
building roads first to meet present
requirements—roads needed by the
farmers and settlers, aod roads to
develop tbe country.   Tourist roads'
oould come  later.    The proposed
road over  tbe Cascade mountains
was purely  a  tourist  road.   Tbe
road problem was a difficult one to
solve,   and  he wished to meet the
people, to discuss their difficulties
with them.
Hon. John Hart, minister of
finance, said be took great pleasure
in addressing a Grand Forks audience. When be took tbe portfolio
of finance minister he had been told
by tbe premier that it would be bis
duty to sit on the treasury cbeA
and allow nothing to escape. He
bad endeavored to carry out instructions. Tbe me*mber for Grand Forks
bad, however, succeeded in making
a raid on tbe strong box, and now
be was ioformed tbat tbe same
gentleman contemplated -another
raid for another (175,000.
There was only one serious problem in connection witb the fioano
og of the province, aod tbat was
tbe Pacific Great Eastern. Were
tbat problem removed, the finance
minister would have an easy time.
The speaker then reviewed the conception aod past history of the
road, whicb was a legacy left tbe1
present government by tbe Bowser
government. The present adminis
tratioo was endeavoring to solve the
problem, and he felt reasonably sure
tbat it would succeed. He then
gave a review of the part tbe late
government bad played in the building of the road. Mr. Bowser had
been taken bo seriously to task by
his own supporters for the huge
sums spent in connection with the
construction of the line tbat he had
been forced to take refuge in tbe remark, "Gentlemen forget my past;
my future is spot ess." Concerning
tbe spending qualities of the late
government, he gave a grapbic illustration. In 1910 there was a sur*
plus of (10,000,000 in the treasury,
accumulated mostly from the sale of
natural resources, and from 1910 io
1916 tbe government had spent (19,-
000,000. Tbe late government bad
no system of audit; tbe present administration bad estab isbed an
audit department in connection witb
tbe collection of tbe income tax, and
now everybody bad topay towards
paying the expenses of the govern
Speaking on the financial condi
tion of the province, Mr. Hart said
tbat the credit of British Columbia
wae never sounder or in better shape
tban it is oow. The province bad
borrowed large sums of mousy, but
it had borrowed to reloao, a million and a balf having been loaned
from the conservation fund alone,
besides tbe loans made to municipalities for better bousing, to soldier
settlement areas, and for many other
purposes. For all these loans the
government had ample security.
The government was pursuing this
policy because it could borrow
money at a lower rate of interest
tban private individuals.
Referring to the opposition lead
er's policy, the speaker said that
Mr. Bowser had no general policy.
Whatever was the polioy of tbe
people of tha district in which he
happened to be was Bowser's polioy.
It was anything with bim to gain
Hon. T. D. Pottullo, minister of
lands, paid tribute to the activities
of our member at Viotoria, saying
tbat oo constituency in the province
had a more wide«awake represents-"
tive at the capital. Tbe new minister of public works was starting his
work, said tbe speaker, in tbe proper manner by going over tbe roads
of tbe province in company witb
Mr. Campbell, federal aommissioner
of public highways.
The government, said Mr. Pattullo, believed in developing the resources of the provinoe in order to
get people into the country. After
al), the people were the real asset to
any country. Without people, the'
other resources were valueless. Can*
•da, he said, should be able to assimilate from 300,000 to 600,000
immigrants annually. It was the
[ business of the government to see
Broadcasting Worth While
that these newcomers were sound in
body and mind. It was easy to determine a person's physical condition, but what was bidden in hie
mind was sometimes difficuls. He
did not place as much importance
as some people did on the amount
of money an immigrant brought
into the country. Tbe main question with bim was whether tbe pern
son was willing to work and take
care of himself. Some opposed an
immigration policy ae long as we
had unemployed of our own in the
bread lioe in tbe cities. These people
were born and bred in tbe cities, and]
you couldn't pry tbem away from
the cities. Aa for himself, he would
rather get out in the country to
work tban to be in the bread line or
two weeks ahead of tbe bread line.
Mr. Pattullo reviewed tbe irrigation work that bad been done by
the government in tbe Okanagan
and other parts of the province. It
was the policy of tbe government,
he said, to continue thiB work until
every acre of arable land in British
Columbia is under irrigation.
On motion of H. A. Gaspell and
R. G. Ritchie, a hearty vote of
thanks was tendered tbe speakers.
Tbe chairman expressed the opinion that the meeting should extend
its appreciation 1st Premier Oliver
for the able manner in wbicb he
presented the freight rates case to
the Ottawa government.
Tuesday morning W. K. Gwyer,
road engineer, who conveyed the
ministers from Penticton to this city
in his motoi car, took the minter of
public works and A. W. Campbell
over the fifteen miles of new road
of the CascadexRoasland link. Mr.
Gwyer returned lo this city, aDd
Messrs.Sutherland snd Campbeil pro
ceeded over the trail to tbe Rossn
land end, where new work is now
being carried on.
Hon. John Hart, minister of finance, and Hon. Mr. Pattullo, minster of lands, spent Tuesday in the
oity. They were shown over tbe
irrigation system now in oourse of
construction- by our member, tbe
irrigation trustees and other
citizens. Otber parts of the valley were also visited. On tbeir
return to tbe city a luncheon was
served at the home of Trustee E. F.
Laws. Mr. Glaspell acted as spokesn
men for the trustees, expressing
sppreciatiation for tbe visit of the
ministers to the valley. The ministers, in their response, stated tbat
tbey were thoroughly satisfied with
what tbey bad seen; in fact the
woik was further advanced arid of a
better quality than wdat tbey bad
expected to find it. Mr. Pattullo
stated tbat tbe (40,000 required for
the installation of the No. 2 pump

thus completing tbat unit.

FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1922
Members of the American labor unions are
likely to be running clothing and textile factories  in   Russia before long, if press dispatches  can   be relied on to tell the truth.
Lenine, according to these reports, has offered
the concession to the Amalgamated. Clothing
Workers of America, and at the  recent cob -
ventbn in Chicago the clothing workers voted
to  approve  President   Hi 11 nun's plan for a
million-dollar corporation to  undertake the
concession. The company,* according to Mr.
Hillman's plan,  is to ba cooperative; all the
profits beyond 10 par cent are to  be devoted
to extending the industry in Russia.   Other
labor unions or anyone who "is interested in
the economic reganaration of Russia" can buy
stock in the company.   The schema is inter-
esjing.and the clothing workers probably have
the latant business capacity to make it sue •
ceed if they are not too much interfered with.
But if they succeed, will they not be "exploring" the unfortunate Russians who  work
■ u their factories!
by the grain grower for his wheat was 81 cents
a bushel,which is a tremendous drop-from the
price which prevailed in war days. In 1918
the average price of wheat per bushel for the
entire crop was $2.02 and in the following
year it was $1.90.
It is doubtful if any other Canadian product
can show a drop of more than 50 per cent in
valuaJn so short a period. It is in face of these
figures that Mr. Langley tells the committee
that it is beginning at tbe wrong end of the
scale when it discusses freight rates on a basis
of wage schedule. The proper place tostart such
a discussion is from the difference between what
the farmer pays to raise his wheat and what he
gets for the product in the market. If that
spread is not large enough to encourage him
to cultivate the greatest possible acreage, if it
is not enougb to give him a reasonable return
for his labor, then Canada is facing a very
serious situation.
How can we possibly expect immigrants to
come in and till the soil, if the experienced
men at it now can not make a living? This is
an imperative condition which confronts the
government, the railways and everybody concerned. The foundation of the whole problem
is the solvency of the farmer.
Canadians and Americans are "saving at
the spigot and wasting at the bunghole" at a
period when they should be discarding nonessentials and clinging to the necessities.
High priced hotels, theaters, ball parks, and
othea camping grounds of amusement and
non production are enlarging their capacilies
to accommodate the ever-increasing army of
refugees from the storms of life. Golf clubs,
walking cane emporiums, pet dog kennels,
canary bird dispensaries and bootlegging joints
are nourishing as never before. Every street
and highway throughout the land is teeming
with automobiles that are burning expensive
gasoline in the presence of self-imposed idleness. And all this time the coasts of north,
south, east and west are teeming with the
mulitudes of the weary. The constructive
forces of society with marvelously increased
demands upon them are at this moment suffering for the lack of adequate nourishment

Hon. George Langley speaks about farming
in the west with all the authority which a natural shrewdness and more than a quarter of
a century of practical experience carry with
it, says the Family Herald and Weekly Star
of Montreal. If he discusses the wages of
farm laborers he does so from the standpoint
of a man who has himself to pay the wages of
hired men. If he talks of the cost of transportation or of distribution of grain, itis wit*!
the weight of influence of the president of a
company that handles millions of- bushels of
grain every year.
It was not a very reassuring story which
Mr. Langley had to tefl to the house of commons committee on transportation costs which

Palliser Pass on the Great Divide,
near Mount Assiniboine for Its seventeenth Annual Oamp, whieh opens on
July 90, this summer. An outlying
' Camp will be placed near tiie summit
of North Kananaskis Pass, ln tho

forty-four miles distant from Banff,
but, owing to tit* series of walking
tour camps recently established by
Mr. A. O. Wheeler, of Banff, it ean be
comfortably reaebtd within three davs
from the Alpine Olub headquarters by
tiwrelHag for two days to Trail Cen

of Palliser Pass. All outfit and supplies carried by paek ponies. Main
eamp will be at tho snmmit of Palliser
Pass.'a-A subsidiary oamp will be
placed near the summit of North Kaa
anaskis Pass, eight miles distant)
both very beautiful locations.
The summit of Palliser Pass is 7200
feet above' sea-level. Cbrifp will be in
an open Alpine meadow by the shore
of Belgium Lake. The pass is dominated on one side by Mt. Sir Douglas
(Hatg), 11,500 ft, and on the other
side by Mt. King Albert, 9,800 ft,
and is very beautiful in its surround*
ings. A few miles southward lies the
Royal Group, dominated by Mt. King
George, 11,400 ft., and Mount Queen
M«ry, 11,100 ft., surrounded by the
.Royal Family of mountains. Below
the Group lies tbe Royal Valley.
The summit- of North Kananaskis
Pass lies at 7,000 feet; it is the centre
of the British Military-Naval Group.
At its summit is Lake Maude, and all
around are the peaks: Mt. Beatty, Mt.
Jelllcoc, Mt. French, Mt. Maude, Mt
Robertson, Mt. Birdwood, and Mt
Smuts—all excellent climbs of 10,000
feet and mors. Not far to the southeast is the French Military Group,
from whieh Mt. Joffre, over tt^OO
feet rises conspicuously.
The time will be spent in elbnbs
and explorations in this new territory,
and a special two-day trip will be arranged from'the main camp at PalHser
Pass, via Kananaskis Pass, Haig Glacier, Haig Pass, Burstall Lakes, and
Burstall Pass. At Kananaskis Pass
Camp, of special interest will be Law-
son Lake and Turbine Oanyon. Tor-
bine .Canyon is spanned by six or
more natural bridges. Haig Olaoier,
and its subsidiaries, the largest iee
field in this southern part of the
Main Ranges, is very fascinating. Its
icefall and that of the Beatty Glacier
come right down close to the summit
ef Kananaskis Pass. The pass ia very
beautiful, and is comprised of wide,
open Alpine meadows.* carpeted by
pink heath and white heather, and
brilliant with rare. Alpine flowers.

___, ** *?w«",?,nt o%**ymsn's convention, at Regina Mr. Q. H. Button,
superintendent of agriculture and
animal industry of the C. P. B. department of natural resources at
G-**uj«>?. B»ve an interesting description of a trench silo.   Re said:
"During recent years lt bas ne*
Men a very serious problem to make
money in ddirying, inasmuch as the
prices of butter and cream an<_
J™* milk have been rating relatively high (luring that time, and
the man who gave Us business the
serious consideration which it should
receive has been able to show a
satisfactory return on Us forest-
"However, with the decline in
values of all dairy products which
bas taken place during the last 12
months, and which, according to
certain forecasts will continue for
another six months, the question of
reducing costs of production becomes a very live and important
"Cattle give best results when-
supplied witb an abundance st succulent fodder. June pastures have
frequently been named as ths ideal
condition fer economical production
of milk and beef. If bj a system of
pickting grasses or similar fodders
we oan make them available for a
much longer period or even during
the entire season when good grass
is out of season, we will have accomplished a result which will contribute toward the production of maximum quantities of milk and butter
fat at minimum costs. Such a result
ean be achieved by the use of silos
and  silage  crop*.
"The sunflower will set aside
some of the objections which might
be raised to the other ensilage crone.
Firs**, it is superior to corn for dry
areas, as it outyields that crop during years of low precipitation. It is
a crap which responds quickly to an
increase in rainfall or to irrigation,
as we have secured yields of over 34
and a half tons of sunflowers to the
acre on irrigated ground, while thia
season we secured a yield of 12 tons
to the acre on dry land and during a
very dry season. Second; on the
ether hand the sunflower crop germinates and grows at a lower temperature than corn, and resists frost
in spring and fall, thus enjoying in
this climate a much longer growing
season than corn.
"This crop, because of its weight
per cubic foot, can be safely stored
in the trench silo. Such a type of
silo brings this class of fodder within the reach of thousands of dairymen. It means more than this to
many farmers, for many of them
will now be enabled to engage in
mixed farming, keep dairy cattle,
and thus stay .on the land and pre!
on their feet, whereas prior to the
advent of this crop they were facing defeat and despair.
"  Other Silos
"In recommending the trench silo,
I do net for a moment disparage any
of the types of silos now in use as a
means of storing feed. They have
one disadvantage, however, and that
ie that they cost money. The trench
silo affords a method of storing feed
which is inexpensive apart from
labor. Jnd most men who are strug
gling to get on their feet are willing
to make an expenditure of their own
labor in order to achieve success.
"The quality of .the feed so stored
appears to be suite equal to that
stored (n the ordinary silo. It may
be argued thai there it | certain lots
at moisture by drainage, ud the
point is doubtless well taken.
'I am certain that the silage stop,
ed in the trench will give excellent
results, as we are now feeding soms
sixty-five late summer and fall
calves in the open on sunflower silage from the trench silo. Tbese
calves are making excellent growth,
and I have seen no thriftier Tot this
year npr at any time. My argument
•% tbe"»*->re, that even though there
mny K oome loss of food value
through moisture which drains away
from tbt trench eilo, the fodder
which remains ie highly nutritious
and superior to any fodder ordinarily available.
'Tlie method of construction of
tho trench silo is simple. It consists
of an excavation on a faifly well-
drained site. It is not lined with
cement or lumber, nor is it provided
with curbing to permit the filling of
the silo above the surface. It is simply an excavation. It is about eight
feet deep, sixteen feet wide and can
be as long as desired, depending
upon the size of the herd and the
material to be stored. It is fed off
one and, like a loaf of bread. The
daily capacity per animal is from
forty to fifty pounds, depending on
the quantities of straw, hay or grain,
if any, which is being fed. The weight
of a cubic foot of ensilage in a trench
will average about 36 pounds, and
baaed en the above figures the
length of the silo required to accommodate sufficient feed for the herd
can be readily determined. The cutting box waa set up outside tht
trench, and a sbort length of pipe
and tht hood provided the necessary
piping. Tbe silage waa distributed
and well tramped. This year the
trench was filled only to the level of
the ground, when it was well-covered with straw from an old stack
bottom. I think it would be an improvement to round up the silage
ubove the level of the ground a couple ef feet, keeping it well tramped
for two or three days. When tbe
silage has finished settling the
i reneh would then be approximately
full. The straw or other covering
to be used could then be put on.
I'he trench method of storing hss
kept the silage with practically no
loss and the quality of the fodder,
as I have already said, is first-class.
Conditions Demand Economy.
"Conditions demand tha strictest
economy in the handling of any of
our-fodder propositions, and if the
dairyman is prepared to do some
manual labor in the way of cutting
the crop by hand, the only equipment that he will require in order to
provide his stock with ensilage in
ubundance is a cutting b_BX, the pur-
ihase of which could be handled by
the community or a group of farmers, so that the cast would be a
very small amount for each member
of the "Silo Association" as it might
be termed.
"In conclusion 1 simply want to
point out that this matter has been
sufficiently tasted to remove doubt
as to its feasibility. We have st
hand in western Canada means by
which the cost of production of
dairy products can be reduced twenty
to thirty per cent, in areas whieh
have been dairying under former
methods, which includes practically
all western Canada. Figures indicate that a reduction of twenty per
cent, in tbt cost of production of
dairy products in the three prairie
orovinces would mean s saving of
nine million, six hundred and sixty-
six  thousand dollar*."

Springs of Business Activity
The Alexander Hamilton Institute
of New York has published a lecture given by Mr. E. W. Beatty,
President ot the Canadian Pacific
Railway Co., entitled "The Springs
of Business Activity," from which
the following has been culled:
, "What should be the relation of
the stats to the individual in our
modern civilisation? Many philosophers havo discussed the relations
of state and individual in an ideal
world. I sn not a philosopher, but
|* business man, and my interest is
iin the immediate present.
\     Man's Straggle Witb Nstnre
The world as we know it is at con-
*taoi war, not se much a war between nation and nation as a war
of man against nature. The world
jis getting to be more populous, and
its peoples most bt clothed and fed.
Incidentally, ths nations into which
mankind has grouped itself may war
.npon eaeh other in the desire to control for tbeir is**m needs new or old
sources of merchandise and of production, bot the dynamic spirit underlying human activities is the desire to preeerve tilt human raee.
The Pioneer Spirit
"In this Now World of North
'America, the straggle of man
against nature is mote obvious, perhaps, than in an OU World, where
incoese sufficient for food, clothing
•nd coaaUteabls comfort is considered by so many as their undisputed
heritage. We, over here, live among
pioneers and the sons of pioneers,
who have houesteaded, cleared their
own farms, prospected for and discovered mines, started business in a
wilderness and seen the wilderness
become a city. We realize, perhaps
mors readily than the philosophers
of the more complex Old World how
much wt owe to individual energy
in this war against nature. The continent of North America has been
civilised and adapted to the needs
of man by the enterprise of sturdy
individuals and not by state officials.
The Personal Element in Business
"With the struggle for existence
disguised under the polite forms of
settled and organized communities,
it is still to men of vision and imagination that we owe our progress.
The history of Canada and the
United States is full of instances of
men who have risen to commanding
positions in the world of affairs by
thc force of personal merit. Mount
Stephen, Carnegie and Edison are
typical of the spirit of leadership
which has made the civilization of
our continent what it is. In all
fields of business life we owe much
tn the indomitable energy of leaders, who, with a fair field and unhampered by tradition, have won
their way to the front. In new
countries the individual seems to
have opportunities denied ban in
older "nations.
"In the largest company or in the
most complex corporation the driving power of the individual is
the keynote of progress.
Dangers  of   Individualism
"There is, however, a danger to
the human race in unrestricted individualism. "Every man for himself" is not only a selfish policy; it
may imperil the harmony, indeed,
the safety, of the community. Man
as a social animal hae a duty, not
only to himself, but also to his
neighbors. Ilie business man or
business company in a complex community or state bas a similar duty
to the public Tbe work of that man
or company is ultimately for the
preservation and benefit of his community, and while that work it most
energetically prosecuted, if done in
the spirit of the individual, it fails
of its purpose if it is prosecuted
to the detriment of tbe community
or raee as s whole.
State Socialises as a Remedy for
ths Hla of Business
How many an illness is due to selfish excessl How often tbe decay of a
once powerful company it due to
its abuse of privilege and disregard
of the interests and opinion of the
community it ought to serve! The
oompany or business enterprise that
lives for itself and is not conducted
" ultimately with an eye to its usefulness to the community is an unhealthy business and a source of in
stability. It incorporates a wrong
idea] of conduct, and, sooner or later,
is bound to come in conflict with
public opinion, to Hs own ultimate
ruin. That business which desires
a good old age must be conducted in
a spirit of service—service to the
community, and service to the public. * It will be conducted all the
better if it is virile and progressive,
full of initiative and new ideas, free
from red tape, official rules, cast-
iron precedents and regulations, hut
it ought always to be conducted in
the  spirit  of  good  citizenship.
Tbt tendency toward state owner
ship and control, which is now happily passing away, was the aftermath of a too reckless and selfish
individualism, both in the Old World
and the New, during the first stages
of industrial growth. The so-called
Manchester School policy of "laissez
faire" or "devil take the hin'most"
was carried to excess and resulted
in hardship to large masses of the
people, and so in an unhealthy situation in the body politic.
Can a Government Undertaking
Be a Business Success T
The test of a private enterprise
is tiie making of profits under
competitive conditions. That test
cannot be applied to government
operations. A government rarely
feels that it is under the obligation
to make a profit from the conduct
of any of its enterprises.
A private enterprise, even when
operating a public utility like a railroad, has the stimulus of profit to
spur it to a fruitful activity, but if
profits fail and losses occur through
misfortune or mismanagement it
must bear its own burdens. It is
generally believed by business msn
that no undertaking run by government can stand the foil test of profit making and proper conservation
of the plant. Reports of profits
from operations generally overlook
depreciation, reserves, interest on
capital and an allowance for the
equivalent of tbe taxes paid by private undertakings. - From a strict
accounting view, most, if not all
government business undertaking*
opentt at a loss and would be wiped
out were it not for tht direct and
indirect support of the public treatury. There may be circumstances
in whieh such operation at a loss is
justified by public interests, but it
is hard for a business man to conceive of such a system being generalized without being reminded
that the inhabitants of a certain it-
land made a living by taking in one
another's washing.
Government Interference SheaM
Be Limited
The business man must always
bear in mind tbat it is himself and
his fellow taxpayers wbo bear the
burden of experimentation in the
field of government industry. If the
assumption of government control
were to take place progressively, as
some enthusiasts desire, the time
might come when, with only a part
of the nation's industpes nationalized, staggering burdens of taxation
would crush tiie profit out of all ths
War's Effect on Business Structure
For a time tiie necessities of governments during the Great War
seemed to upeet all precedents. Um
governments of the belligerent powers believed H to be necessary to
taht a large part in directing the
economic activity of the people in
the production and distribution ef
goods sad in msny eases to assume
complete control of it. Those who
in earlier yeart had argued for extension of government intervention
in business affairs found in these
events a vindication of their position. Those wbo had steadfastly insisted upon the inefficiency of government agencies in practical business affairs harbored the fear that
so many steps had been taken toward government intervention that
it might not be possible to retrace
Neither hope nor fear was justified by the outcome. Both sides forgot that these were emergency
measures likely to be abandoned
when the needs from which they
were born ceased to exist. They
overlooked the fact that this government action, though intended to enhance economic efficiency, gave that
idea a very limited scope and concentrated on the single purpose of
winning the war, brushing aside all
other considerations. They failed to
perceive .that when peace came tiie
public would no longer be impressed
by the mere fact that the government had done certain things, but
would begin to inquire how well it
had accomplished them.
War Measures Testes! by Baste ess
The fact is that these war measures never were judged by ordinary
business standards and ought not to
have been so measured. Into thess
standards the element of eost always enters as a vital factor. In
the throes of war we did not always have time to count the costs.
The thing of importance was ths
result attained. Whatever success
these measures might have had was
due to the spirit in wbicb they were
received by the people, who silenced
every other demand than national
needs and accepted any inconvenience to trade or industry sa a patriotic autp.
As soon as peace came, murmurs
of criticism began to be heard. Customary standards of criticism began
to be" applied and government administration no longer appeared in
a rosy light. The net result was
that the state as an economic a~ent
was tried and found wanting. We
had had a practical demonstration
of government operation on a l.**.r;:e
scale and the conviction of its wc;.lines* became widespread. There tu_*
been a complete reaction in p.-blic
opinion as to the merits of government action in business affairs.
Service the Keynote of Sou;-.J
•  Business
The moral of all these considerations is that SERVICE should be
the cardinal policy of good business.
If we keep in mind that we are,
above.all, servants of the public, wa
cannot go far wrong. Our object is
to supply the needs and contribute
to the well-being of the people, our
clients. We may be as enterprising;,
as full of initiative, as inventive in
ideas and methods as possible, and.
this initiative is best fostered-if we
can count on a reasonable reward,
but if we keep SERVICE as our
watchword) our individuality will
always be guided iu the right direction. Such a spirit will conduce
-more than anything else to success,
but the success will not be achieved
at the cost of the public welfare, and
it will obviate all likelihood of the
public wasting time, energy and
money in attempting to run your
business for you.
tf I may be permitted to give an
instance from the history of the
company which I have tile honor to
serve, I should like to illustra'- my"
argument from the case of the "Canadian Pacific Railway. That railway holds the unique record of being the only large private railway
enterprise in the world that escaped
tbe fate of being taken over by its
government even temporarily as a
result of the Great War. My firm
belief is that its immunity was dus
to the impregnable position it held
in the confidence of the people of
Canada tbrough its record of service ever sines its construction as a
transcontinental railway. One of
the startling aad at the time much
criticised porters with which Van
Home placarded the country in the
early days read:
"Parisian Politeness en the
C. P. R."
This was merely a vivid expression
ef the cardinal poliey of tne men
who established tht company that
courtesy and consideration fo;* the
people ef Canada were to be tht
watchwords ef thi* private enterprise. Thee* men were all imbued
with an intense patriotism and belief in Canada, and considered that
in bui Wing up their railway they
were building up their country.
SERVICE was tha very breath of
their nostrils. The result was that
obey established not only a successful railway, able to weather severs
financial storms, but they also
established a popular railway in
which the people of Canada had.
confidence. Its profits have never
been excessive, and its prosperity is
generally taken as reflecting the
general prosperity of the Canadian
people as a whale.
Piedastiv* Activity Best Stimulated
