Sane Policy
Ono of the sanest policies ever
attempted by any government in
regard to the unemployment ques«
tion has been evolved by the provincial administration. All during
the winter months road work and
other public works will be carried
out, wherever weather conditions
will permit. Hon. Dr. Sutherland,
minister of public works, has announced his program for unemployment work. This includes the construction and repair of roads in
many parts of the {[province where
unemployment it most acute. The
sum of $150,000 has been set aside
for the work and,while there may be
a loss as a result of carrying out
highway work during th ■ winter
months, it is felt that the governs"
ment bas attempted to solve tbe
problem iu the most practical man*
Davidson in Full Control
Despite the difficulty of the situation, Attojney General Manson is
rapidly working out a solution of
the beer question. Throwing everything into the hands of the new
liquor eommissioner, Hugh Davidson, he has shown tba' the liquor
problem sball betaken out of politics and before the new year is very

Radio Manufacturers
Are Unable to Keep
Up With the Demand
The radio industry right now is
running away beyond all estimates
and expectations. The manufacturers who bave been lougeet in the
field had prepared for a record-
breaking season, but the season
started et-rlier than was anticipated
and few manufacturers are now able
to keep tbeir pioduction up to their
Radio apparatus is mucb better
tban it ever was. More persons are
discovering that it does not require
a college course iu tlectrieal engineering to make it possible to build
their own radio receiving sets.
Tbe most satisfactory feature of
tbe increase in business is that it
probably wili be permanent. I do not
look for the usual drop next summer,
says Major Hert H. Frost, By tbe
time the now higher power stations
authorized at the recent radio conference called in Washington by
Secretary Hoover, will be in operation. Wltb tbose high-power stations it will bs possible to cut
through tbe atmospheric disturb'
antes wbicb bave tended to hamper
summer reception.
Also, these bigb power stations
will make it possible forthe farmer
to receive hie market and weather
reports during the daylight hours.
Heretofora such reception«*bas been
extremely difficult, snd this condition kejjl i,he faimer from boring
radio. At the present time probably
not more than 15 per cent of all the
American and Canadian farmers
have receiving sets. The farmets
have had a very prosperous year
and I look for a largs percentage of
them to begin buying radio within
the next few months.
Thousands of people alao have
been waiting befcie buying sets in
tbe belief tbat tbere would be revolutionary changes iu receiving   sets.

Determined to
Stop Bootlegging
That the government ie fully determined to put a stop to bootlegging in British Columbia, so far as
that ie possible, is evidenced by the
drive on tbe illicit trafficker in
Vancouver recently. Attorney General Manson gave the new liquor
commissioner, Hugh Davidson, full
powers to proceed as bc saw fit.
The roundup of alleged bootleggers
is the greatest in the history nf the
p ovince.

Disposal of the P. G. E.
Oue of the moat important issues
wbicb bas ever been raised in
British Columbia is the disposition
ol tbe Pacific Great Eastern railway.
Thntacknowledged"while elephant"
has cost the taxpayers of the province tremendous sums, and a sale of
the property would mean a saving
of enough money each year to decrease materially the public expenditures. Premier Oliver has received
assurance that the federal railway
conference will be beld in January.
He will attend and present British
Columbia's case. First of all will
come the disposition of tbe provincial line, and seco dly the question
of linking up the great Peace river
country witb the British Columbia
coast. The premier has been trying
for   years   to get rid of the Pacific
Great Eastern, but wit out success.
Following bis representations to
Premier Mackenzie King, a general
conference was arranged. After
tbis is over it is expected some solution will be reached as lo the future
of tbe line aud the settlement of the
transportation problems of Peace
river. Tbe porential wealth of the
lattei district is conceded to beof inestimable value in the fuller development of British Columbia.
Only An Empty
Six-year-old Freddy, a city bred
youngster, was on his first visit to
his uncle's farm. At breakfast be
heard tbat bis uccle's Jersey cow
had been stolen during tbe nigbt.
"That's a good joke on the man
who stole her," wss Freddy's comment,
"Why," asked bis uncle.
"Wby, just before supper last
night tbe hired man took all tbe
milk out of her."
Wby does one recall so often and
so needlessly the times he bas made
a fool of himself?
Within a radius of forty miles
from Taber, a small town in the
heart of the settled southern district of Alberta, antelopes estimated
to number 1,000 are running wild.
The prairie antelope was once almost extinct but protective measures put into force have saved the
species and present indications are
that this splendid game animal may
soon increase to an extent rendering
an open season possible and adding
greatly to Alberta's attraction fer
Victoria,Jan. 8.—Dospite adverse
conditions in the lumbering industry during 1924, the total revenue
c iiii cted by the forest branch during tbe year was $3,469,112, as
compared with $3,468,714 in 1923.
In other words, tbere was a slight
increase, aocording to the figures
given out by Hon. T. D. Pattullo,
minister of lands.
Tbe eight-hour day has'gone into
effect in British Columbia industry
as satisfactorily as could be expected,
state officials of the provincial labor
department. No serious effect upon
tiusinssB haB been reported as tbe
result of tbeinanguralion of tbe law,
and no cases of non-observance bave
been noted. Any instance of failure
to live up to tbe new regulations
will be dealt with promptly, it
is stated. Further exemptione under
the aw aie being considered, but
none has been made as yet, states J .

Plans for British Columbia's participation (in the supreme- court
hearing on freight rates in February
are being shaped by tbe governmenl. G G. McGeer, K.C, government coutis 1, will attend the h?ar-
ing, witb instructions to watch tbe
situation carefnlly and protect British Columbia's interests to the full.
Premier Oliver is enroute to Ottawa to attend tha federal railway conference on January 9. HiB chief aim
is to dispose of the Pacific Great
Eastern railway, a thankless task at
best, he points out, but every effort
will b made to make some arrangement whereby tbe province will be
relieved of this burden.
One of the heaviest ri
experienced by the Canadian Pacific Railway in connection with Ma
traditional Christmas sailings to
the British Isles was experienced
this year. A special train from Um
West to Montreal was reqaired fot
the accommodation of passenger*
for the company's steamship, tka
"Montlaurier," sailing De-tembm
12 from St. John, N.B., while ete et
two specials or extra sections from
Montreal to St. John and extra sections on the Imperial, the Canadian
Tacific transcontinental, were ra.
(mired dally for steamship passes-
j>rs during that same week.
Wbile tempering his optimism
witb hie customary conservativeness,
Premier Oliver has sent out a bright
New Year message to the people of
British Columbia.
"I believe brighter days are in
store and my earnest desire is tbat
we all take full advagtage of the opportunities as they are and as tbey
become available."
Tbe government leader looks forward to increases in the lumbering
and mining industries and claims
that through the shipment of wheat
via British Columbia ports general
provincial development will be materially aided.
Officials of tbe attorney general's
department state tbat new drivers'
licenses will be ready for issue about

It is my intention to again enter
the contest for Mayor. Personally I
felt that I should retire at the finish
of tbis term, but many of tbe taxpayers bave suggested that, in the
best interests of the city, I sbould

his intention to run on an unre-
munerative platform, in which event
I offered to withdraw, as I felt I

in 1900 that surgeons and soldiers of the
United States army, at the risk of their lives,
proved that yellow fever, the supreme terror
of the tropics, was not contagious or a filth
disease, but was transmitted from one human
being to another solely by a mosquito of a
particular type, the stegomyia.
Instead of having to boiTow^iiiuiiuy to pay
its debts, as has been charged, it now appears
that after the collection of tho December rates
the present council not only had enough funds
to meet all its obligations but will li'iveji balance of about $700 besides. Thia is a pretty
good record, when all the disadvantages
enumerated in last issue under which the
council has labored are considered, and we
can not see how the ratepayersjoan better
themselves by .voting for a change. jJMayor
Acre's opponent represented the VVest^ ward
in the council for a uumber of years, but after
a careful survey of his record we fail to tind a
single instance where he L'enetited the, j ward.
To return Mr. Acres, therefore, seems the
only logical thing to do under the circumstances.
With one or two exceptions, the aldermanic
ticket will probably be the same as last jear,
Aldermen Miller and Liddicoat will, it is understood, seek re election. Both have proven
capable officers and will likely head the poll
in their respective wards. Other candidates
most frequently mentioned are J. T, Simmons
in the Last ward and John Donaldson in the
West ward.
After years of ineffectual legislation, it is
apparent that the only way to "control"
whisky is to prohibit its manufacture and importation. A few years ago tho open bar was
a meance to the youth of the land. Today
alluring liquor advertisements, setting forth
in "glowing --language the alleged virtues of
their good, stares the reader of almost every
newspaper in the face. It is questionable
which is the greater evil. Die bar war restricted to certain districts of our cities and
was only visited by certain elements of the
people; the whisky advertisements go into
every home, and they are read by every class
of society, by the old and by the young. It is
a pity and a crime that this sbould be so. It
is shameful that editors and owners of news-
pahers who pose in public as temperance advocates and moral reformers should accept
these advertisements. But such is the power
of the  lmighty dollar,
"Beer by the glass" and whisky by the bottle in an unlimited number of glasses and
bottleslis a poor way to "control'fthe trallic. If
a better way of "control" can not be found,
whisky and beer should be banished.
A consumers' league is an association of
persons who desire, so far as possible, to do

A splendid season of winter

An entirely now service between
Montreal, Toronto and Winnipeg,
operating on the fastest schedule
yet established fur these cities, was
instituted by the Canadian Pacific
Railway on December 4. The new
train, leaving Montreal at 6.15 p.m.
daily, and Toronto at 9.45 p.m.
daily, reaches Winnipeg at 9 a.m.,
89 hours, 45 minutes after leaving
Montreal and 86 hours 15 minutes
after leaving Toronto. Express
shippers arc especially benefitted,
as shipmints reach the terminal
cities in lime for delivery on the
second day after leaving, instead of
on the third as formerly. Passengers gain a business day and earlier
connections for more distant points,
on reaching their destinations. As
the east-bound train of this service
connects direct with the Frontenac
for Quebec city, passengers and express bound for that point alio gaic
greatly by reduced tame.
