of complaint is the "short

petitioned the Inter-State Commerce
Commission for permission to advance rates. They state that for tha
years 1021 to 1924 inclusive, tha

was 3.55 per cent., which they claim
is so small as to render it impossible

After thirty years of newspaper life in New
Zealand, A J. Stall worthy, whose father was
a Liberal member in the New Zealand legislature, has given some five months' concentrated study to matters social and political in
Canada and the United States.
"As part of my quest," he said, in an interview printed in the Vancouver Star, "I have
been studying the liqnor question, peradven-
ture you could teach New Zealand anything
in tbia eternal controversy. Right across your
continent, up to Quebec; in your provinces,
legislatures, universities, courts, popular institutions; in your maritime,industrial, mining
and prairie territories, I have mingled with
your people of every phase of political nnd religious thought, and of every degree of moral
capacity. I fouud that wartime prohibition
of the liquor traffic resulted in great gains to
yonr social, economic and national efficiency
and happiness. The evidence was piled np,
unassailable, convincing. Then I found that
the withdrawal of wartime restrictions and a
slackening of enforcement of imperfect prohibition measures, resulted iu a corresponding
increase of your social and political difficulties.
"Take your economic situation,as compared
with the United States. I have talked with
your statisticians all round it, bnt after the
most diligent inquiries, can not escape the
conclusion that 'Prohibition' is a tremendous
factor in the prosperity and ascendancy of the
"From Ottawa and Quebec I crossed the
border and visited a majority of the States,
the larger cities and rual districts. I had th e
honor of meeting President Coolidge and hundreds of men and women who have to be
reckoned with in the national affairs. I saw
millions of Americans in schools, universities,
institutions, streets, factories, stadiums, theaters, dancing halls and midnight missions.
"And as touching the liquor evil, the one
big impression upon my mind is that the United States is making an amazing success of
prohibition. Notwithstanding wfiat seisms to
me a difficult judiciary system, of which I
should require to know more before I could
describe it as anything like ideal, the success
of prohibition in the States is truly phenomenal. The more one investigates the more
economic and moral gain piles up in favor of
the eighteenth amendment, making the 'wet
propaganda sent to foreign countries a terrific
and grotesque libel upon the United Statos
"At Washington, Federal Prohibition Commissioner Haynes said to me deliberately,"the
success already %chioved by the eighteenth
amendment is beyond the most sanguine hopes
of ardent prohibitionists of a few years ago.'
He also claimed that 'the achievement of prohibition in America must be regarded as one
of the greatest triumphs in the history of civilization.' I must agree with him after what I
have seen.
"To come back from an achievement like
that, linked with an idealism so humanly appealing, to 'selling beer by the glass/ iu Canada, with all its attendant insobriety, lilthi •
ness, human degradation and economic and
polijioal disaster, was like getting a breath of
hell in a man's face. I am truly sorry to say
this. I have learned to love Canada and its
splendid people so loyal to the grand old flag.
Your country ls so entrancingly big in its
amazing resources It is a national cradle, or
environment, which naturally must produce
big men. You no doubt have many I ig men
You no doubt want more. But you will not
grow them in your beer saloons. Drinking,
more than drunkenness, is a national or r-tcia'
alcohol is an enemy of the humai i race and
that British Columbia is making a tremendously costly economic and moral mistake in its
beer policy."

The policy of Soviet Russia toward  private
capital resembles the movement uf a pendu
lum. It began in 1917 with lhe absoluqe pro
hibition of private trading and the virtual con
fiscation of private property commercially  in
vesqed.    By  1921  the country had got itself
so involved in difficulty, by reason of the  fail
tire of thc government to conduct  all business
efficiently, that Lenine was ol ligi-d so  estab
lish the New Economic Policy, which granted
a limited but gradually increasing measure ol
toleration toward the private trader.   A year
or  two  ago, following some very strong protests   from  the thoroughgoing   communists,
who did not at all  like this modification of
Marxian theory, the barriers against  private
capital were suddenly putupagaiu. The same
result as before has followed, only more quickly.. Internal  trade is in utter coufusion, and
the government finds itself without the means
or the knowledge of busiuess  nielhod   neccs
sary to conduct all trade.   M. Kameuey  himself, one of the most doctrinaire of commun
ists, admits that great parts of Russia are now
"trade deserts."   So the Soviets have about-
faced once more. They have repealed the de
crees that make it unlawful for private traders
to gbuy  or sell to the state cooperatives, and
they have vejy greatly modified the prohibitive taxation that was enacted against the
tradesmen a year or more ago.

A allmpsse at * corner of the bla room in which Canadian Pacific Shareholders gather to
near the annual address of Chairman and President E. W. Beatty on national business
conditions and the Company's affairs.
Tbe annual shareholders' meeting
of the Canadian Pacific Railway
la one of the important financial
events of the year as naturally fol-
lows from the position held by that
company as a great national institution the activities of which touch
every branch of Canadian life. On
the -first Wednesday in every May
the shareholders rather to hear the
president tell of the company's past
year and to elect directors to carry
on ita great work. At these meetings are always to be found many
of ttie country's leaders in industry,
commerce and finance representing
all parts of the Dominion, and the
president's report is looked upon as
an epitome of business conditions
throughout tbe whole of Canada. Of
course, aU the shareholders cannot
attend, they are far too many and
they are too widely scattered, particularly ln recent years wben the
holding of Canadian Pacific stock or
bonds has greatly grown in popu
larity among the small Investors of
the country. If all were present
the gathering would be a great mass
meeting and the country towns, villages and even the farming districts
Of Canada would be represented to
a surprising extent
Tbe meeting was this year held
on May 6 and tho chairman and
president, Mr. E. W. Beatty, dreSv attention to thc company's lessened
earnings during 1924 which bad resulted from a decrease in the movement of manufactured articles and
•'smaller crop moveraont for tho
year. These conditions, ho said, had
continued during the first three
months of the present year, but
during the month of April the
decrease In gross earnings were
appreciably less which gave ground
tor the belief that conditions were
•lowly improving. With a good crop,
particularly .n Western Canada,
there was cause for confidence that
tbe results of the year's operations
would be reasonably satisfactory.
He pointed out, hoSvever, that neither rail nor ocean traffic had reached normal proportions and that until
they did so the company's expenditures for capital, maintenance and
general operation must be curtailed
so far as may be without impairing
the high standard at which the property has always been maintained.
Mr. Beatty referred to the government proposal to subsidize a line of
freight steamers on the Atlantic under the proposed Petersen contract
and pointed out that particularly
during the past 2 years Atlantic shipping operations have been conducted
with very unsatisfactory financial
returns. He said the companies felt
they had been placed on trial and
therefore were making the fullest
disclosures of the traffic conditions
and of the results of the operation
of the Canadian Pacific Steamships',
Attention was drawn to the need
of an aggressive immigration policy
and the unsatisfactory results so far
this year when 10,792 immigrants
came to Canada as against 23,880
during the same period of the previous year. Mr. Beatty pointed out
there -was nothing fundamentally unsound in Canada's immigration laws,
but there was an apparent lack of
concerted and definite policies In
Great Britain and on the continent.
There was encouragement in tlie
fact that emigration from the British
Isles was becoming more active,
enquiries from the United States
were becoming more numerous and
the continental field showed considerable promise.
In this address Mr. Beatty felt impelled by the prominence which the
general railway situation has recently been accorded ln parliament and
through the country generally to
make some references thereto. He
noticed and welcomed an awakening
of public Interest quite contrary to
the disinterested apathy heretofore
displayed by Canadians towards
transportation matters. Mr. Beatty
drew attention to the statement often
heard that the present railway situation in the Dominion was due to the
failure in former years of private
undertakings, the inference being
that defects of private o-.vnership and
administration resulted in the establishment of public ownership. Mr.
Beatty pointed out that the principal
causes of the present unsatisfactory
conditions 'Vas undoubtedly the
formation from time to time of policies of extensive now construction
and duplication of existing lines, in
most, if not all cases by the government or with government assistance
and In anticipation of a much greater
development than the country has
Failure was almost inevitable, Mr.
Beatty continued, since the undertakings were so. far in advance of
the country's existing or immediate
future requirements, and it did not
to blm seem material whether tho
over-ambitious projects were launched by the government of the day or
were conceived by Individuals or
companies. In each case theso undertakings received the financial
support pf the government and the
approval of the people of Canada,
without which they could not have
been completed, but In neither case
could their break-down bo attributed
to private ownership. *
In consequence of the exiting conditions, there was, said Mr. Beatty,
a general and deep-rooted desire for
railway economies, for the elimination where possible of Intensive competition and duplicate services and
tho utilization where feasible of Joint,
instead of separate terminal facilities. Tn this- connection the president of the Canadian Pacific .Railway pointed out that the position of
his company -was unique. He stated
that many of the lines of railway
now forming the National System
were not constructed as part of one

railway conception, but were conceived and designed to compete with
each other as separate transportation
units, while eacb of them, in addition, was in competition with the
Canadian Pacific system.
The consolidation of the National
System had, he said, brought, in consequence under one administration,
lines which were originally designed
to be competitive and in no sense
part of a unified system. On the
other hand, the Canadian Pacific
Railway had been conceived and constructed as one system, had been
extended from time to time always
as a Bingle system, each part of
which was planned to support the
other. There had further bcen heavy
expenditure of public monies with a
view to bringing the national system lines to a higher state of efficiency, ln particular by the addition
of much modern equipment and power. Since little new traffic had
been developed in Canada in the last
five years and a very moderate
amount of new territory opened, the
expenditures wero aimed to tako
from the Canadian Pacific Hallway
as mu<*n as Improved service and
large expenditures could accomplish.
Ab to the larger question of the
futuro relations which the two systems would bchr to one another, Mr.
Beatty said: "We propose to work
In tho greatest possible harmony
with the National Railways consistent with tho interests of your property nnd of Its owners. I am
convinced that the vast majority of
Canadian", especially  tbo  business
Interests of tho country, do not desire to see tho company either ab
sorbod   or   menaced    I sliould
add, too. that no proposals of any
kind from the eompany to the Government or from the Government to
tlio company have been made save
those to do with the question of reducing economic waste tbrough the
elimination so far as possible of
duplicate services."
