Here Is One Side of
The Railway Problem
In an.entertaining article entitled
"What the Doctors Are Doing," H
F. Gadsby writes in tbe Montreal
Standard wbat he thinks about the
railway problem:
"Time, as somebody has said,
was made for slaves, but the gov
ernment that would siring out time
to settle the railway problem because
there is eternity to look forward to,
has no place in this bustling age.
What Canada wants in the way of a
cure for national ownership is not
treatment, but ready relief—some
thing that will ease the gnawing
pain and lake tbe load off tbe chest
before we all go to the graveyard.
" 'What appals us,' said a prominent politician the otber day, 'is
the extravagance involved in na«
tional ownership. Take, for exam
pie, the C.N.R. d*y train from To*
ronto to Ottawa Besides tbe pas
senger coaches, a. parlor car and a
dining car. The dining car takes
waiters two cooks and a ereward;
the parlor car, a ported. Nine men-
national ownership. Tbe C.P.R day
train cuts out tbe dining car, a parlor car with slip in tables serving
.every purpose. Tbis car gets along
with a cook oim'porter, who is steward, waiter, parlor car conduotor
and porter combined. Two men-
private ownership.'
"The C.P.R. parlor car is just aa
comfortable, tbe food is just as good,
the prices are just as reasonable,and
tbe service jnst as efficient, and the
whole thing is run at a filth tbe ex*
pense of its public ownership rival.
Instead of two tips, you pay one,
for which you get twice tbe polite*
Hess you do from a bunch of train
hands who have got in tbe babit,
along witb national ownership, of
considering themselves civil service
officials witb a haughty outlook oo
the common or garden elector who
pays their wages."
Which, of course, may be a little
overdawn, but it goes to show that
private ownership has decided ad-
. vantages which can not be overlooked by sensible citizens who pay
for rervice and not for fal lals. The
railway problem js the most pressing one in sight.

The city water main is froze and
no one seems to care', if I go through
my Sunday clothes fot coin which
I can't spare; Tbe pipe does not belong to me, I simply pay a monthly
fee for water, when it's running
free, to drink and wash my bair.
Tbe fault may not be mine, by
heck! yet I must suffer thirst, and
they don't care a dog kone speck if
I say, do your worst; Remonstrances
are so mucb chaff, my explanations
make them laugh—kick through
with two bucks and' a half,
"my dear Alphonse, you first."
If it ain't frozen on my lot, it
must be on tbe street—tbey say it
is, I eay it's not, altbo' I know I'm
beat; I'll have to give them my last
dime, or else eat snow till summertime, or hike to some far southern
clime where ice is used for heat.
TheD I for juice and labor pay, to
thaw tbeir frozen drain—wby can't
they pass a law to say tbat it won't
freeze again; There's by'awe passed
by two's and three's, that's old and
smell like musty cheese, but they've
got none called "Anti*Freeze" to
save tbeir water main.
When light wires freeze or throw
a fit and we in darkness gripe, they
drive "tin Lizzy" on tbe bit and get
tbere on the lopg; I do not bave to
scold or barge,,, tliey fix tbem up,
"no extra charge"—their profits,
thank you, are quite large. You get
me, Si. I hope.
There'e not mucb use in getting
mad and tearing out my hair,
tbough lack of water makes me sad
and lines my brow with care; I'll
.get a spade and die a well, and I'll
have water  then  to sell—the city
mains can go to ; they'll   thaw
out quick down tbere.

Railway Board Has
No Jurisdiction
According to a judgment of the
board of railway commissioners for
Canada, issued last week, tbat body
has no juristiction in the matter of
ordering any railway company lo
continue service over lines wbich
the railway company can not operate on a paying basis.
The question was raised by tbe
government of British Columbia and
the boards of trade of the cities of
Rossland and Trail, B. C, following
the application of tbe Red Mountain
railway to be allowed to discontinue
Bervice over a line, 9.47 miles in
length, from the international boun
dary at Patterson to Rossland.
The railway company claimed an
average annual deficit from 1909 to
1921 of $24,388 Tbefoundamental
question to be decided was tbe jurisdiction of the board. It was representee*1 tbat tbe discontinuance of
the service was a serious matter to
Rowland.

According to revised figures given
out by the manager of the Grand
Forks Cooperative Growers exchange
this week, the total shipments of
fruit and vsgetables from tbe central packing bouse tbis season were:
Apples, boxes 60,827
Pears, boxes   4,026
Crab apples, boxes  1,792
Prunes, boxes 26,314
Plums, boxes  4,882
Tomatoes, boxes  5,092
Totatoes, cars       4£
Of the apples, 40 per cent were
No. l's, 33 per cent No. 2,s, and
27 per cent crates. It is pointed out
that the handling of tbis large per*
centage of crate apples raised tht
packing charges considerably. Irrigation, [pruning and thinning will
reduce tbe production of this clan
of fruit.
Tbe last car of apples was shipped
to Edmonton on Wednesday. The
total cost of the new packing honse
was $19,803.

This Man Is 2000
Yours Behind the Times
Wibnr Uleun Voliva, successor of
John Alexander Dowie as overseer
of Zion and head of tbe Christian
Apostolic church, has completed the
fixing of dimensions of his flat
world, existence of wbich is now
taugbt io tbe /ion schools.
According to Mr. Voliva's latest
latest pronouncement, tbe sky is a
vast dome of solid materials, from
wbicb the sun, moon and stajs are
bung like a chandelier. The edges
of (he dome, he explain.*, rest on
tbe wall of ice whicli surrounds the
flat world to keep foolhardy mariners from tumbling over the edge.
"That is the plain teaching of the
whole world of God," he says,"that
the heaven, the dome, the vault,
like a tent, in a solid structure over
the earth and all the lights are within tne firmanent,
"Ezekiel save; 'The throne of God
is above, Ihe vault.' The firmament
above our head is a solid structure
and tbe stars are pointe of light,lhat
is all. They are not worlds, they are
not suns. So-culled science ib a lot

The arms conference cost the United States
only $300,000. Many prize fights with a less
imposing agenda of "scrapping' have cost the
people more.
A bone-dry world may not be witnessed by
the present generation. The cider press has
not yet been outlawed, and an eminent Chicago whiskyology authority declares that by a
proper mixture of fusel oil, potato alchohol
and burnt sugar, first-quality three yeaa old
whisky can be made in three minute.
The offer of £20,000 by Lord Atholstan of
Montreal to the graduate of any university
who will discover a cure for cancer within the
next five years has appealed so strongly to Sir
William Venor, director of a drug company in
Manchester,£ngland,who a year ago had a distressing experience through a false diagnosis,
that he desires to supplement it by offering
another £10,000 to any student or graduate
who within the next five years is able to satisfy
the Royal College of Physicians that he has
discoyeaed a cure which is not surgical.
Luther Burbank, the plant jwizard, has
evolved a thornless blackberry. What the
prohibitionists want is a kickless blackberry
brandy.
The difference between a desert and a land
deserted is well shown in Palestine. Where
the new Jewish colonies have settled and
have«begun to carry on farming by irrigation
the results are comparable to those in south
ern California. Nearly every plant both of the
temperate and of the tropic zone seem to
flourish, and before many years the whole land,
now untitled and waste, will be covered with
crops.
Before adjourning the Washington conference passed a resolution that bound the five
cdief powers to abstain from using poison gas
in warfare between themselves and invited all
other nations to take the same action. The
resolution was one that no one could possibly
oppose, yet it was passed with a notable lack
of enthus asm. Both the British and the
French delegation pointed out that, unsupported by any adequate sanctions, the resolution was only a pious wish, and that their
governments would not dare to make any
change in their preparations to meet the use
of gas by anotner power. It must have been
in everyone's mind that, although all the civilized nations of the world, meeting at The
Hague in 1907, outlawed gas in warfare, Germany, whieh was one of thesignatories,never-
theless made and used poison gas when it
thought the gas would be useful. Decency and
humanity in warfare, like the abolition of war
itself, are to be obtained not by passing reso
tion but by infusing grace into the hearts of
meu.
Chancellor Schober's Vienna cabinet resigned in the evening and resumed oflice next
morning. Not much chance for new political
aspirants.
Great Britain has realized $2,670,000,000
from the sale of 88 per cent of its war materials. The receipts of the United States from
the same sources will reach nearly the same
figure, or, to be more accurate, $2,250,000,000
That sum includes the $822,923,000 due the
United States by foreign governments for the
overseas supplies sold them.
Almost every little girl knows that if she is
very, very good her hair will curl, but who
suspecled that, if we stopped salting our food,
we should become black and have flat noses?
A European savant has it all worked out.
Originally all men were black and remained so
as long as they were conient to live on fruit
and roots. But the Americans began to eat
meat and became red, the Asiatics began to
misuse milk and became yellow, and the Caucasians ate too much salt and so turned white.
At the opening of the British parliament
this week, in the speech from the throne by
King George V praise was paid to the work
of the Washington arms conference. "During
the past three months," said the king, "tbe
Washington conference on the question of dis-
armamnent and the fsjc east continued its sessions. A treaty designed to maintain peace in
the Pacific has been signed by representatives
of the British empire, the United States,
France and Japan and awaits ratification.
While this treaty replaces the Anglo-Japanese
alliance, I am happy to feel that the longstanding accord between the two countries
will remain as cordial as ever under the agree
ments thus concluded. At the same time our
relations with the United States enter a new
and even closer phase of friendship. An agree
ment also was reached on the question of dis
armament, and a treaty has been sighed pro
vid'ng a large measure of relief from the burden of armaments. In all these respects great
results bave been attained and the success of
the conference for which the world will owe a
deep debt of gratitude to the initiative of the
president of the United States of America
will be the happiest-augury for future international relations."

There was, at one time, a widely distributed
poster in British Columbia which stated baldly
that the Forest Dollar was British Columbia's
payroll.
It was noticed at the time, but times were
prosperous, and it is doubtful if the real significance of the idea was fully realized. ' But
when the lumber trade is slack and mills and
camps are shut down, business depression become evident on all sides, and all trades are
forced to share in the continued loss of business.
The grocery, hardware, wire, rope and
boiler machinery houses are a few of the business lines that are hit, and this of course is
reflected on the men employed, for whom
there is no work and thus no pay cheque.
The logger walks disconsolately and aimlessly around the cities and towns of which he
is not a part, the screaming saws of the mills
are silent, and empty railroad cars stand idle
in tbe terminals.and tug boats no longer wend
their way fussily through harbors congested
with shipping, and the many bottoms which
usually carry the lumber of British Columbia
to the Seven Seas lie at anchor,the only move
ment being that occasioned by the tides.
Imagine, so far as concerns the tremendous
lumber industry, this condition made permanent. What is there to take its place? There
is no other natural resources in this large
province that could hope to compete with
lumber as a means of so widely distributing
the payroll which accompanies an active lumber industry; but each and every year sees the
needless destruction of millions of feet of green
timber which should have provided a livelihood for the logger and mill hand, simply because of a certain apathetic and careless section ofthe public which finds its. way into the
woods and is careless with fire.
If at such times -bs this, the lesson is forced
upon us as to the results which follow in the
wake of a temporarily depressed lumber market, imagine what would be the result of a
complete cessation for a long period of years
of the lumber industry.
Let this lesson sink in, and then realize that
every forest fire brings this province a step
nearer to the stagnancy, so far as affects the
marketing of British Colnmbia's most important crop, that of her green forests.

JAMES MSGILL
rounder of;
McGrll Unjversijy
Although the centenary celebrations at Montreal indicate that Mc-
- Gill University is already a hundred
years old, the roots of that great
educational institution reach still
further into the past. In the fascinating volume "McGill and Its
Story" just published, Cyrus Mac-
Millan, the author, states that the
British settlers In Lower Canada,
after the conquest of Quebec were
eager that their children should
have at least an elementary education. It waB felt, too, that in thc
unrest and the uncertainty of thc
period Immediately following the
American Revolution it was not
advisable to send students in search
of higher professional training to
the universities of the United States,
which in the days of their Hritish
allegiance had attracted Canadian
students in large numbers.
Kfforts were accordingly made to
establish a system of free sc-hools
with the hope that later a university
might bc founded. As a result of
the agitation for the providing of
educational   opportunities  in   I/ower
Koya
Advancement of Learning wns; established under this Act, the King
gave directions for the establishment "of a competent number of
Free Schools for the instruction of
children in the first rudiments of
useful learning; and nl»o as occasion
should require for foundations of a
more comprehensive nature." Accordingly, elementary free schools
were soon erected in different parts
of the Province, one-room buildings
of cedar logs. Indeed, they were
mere log-huts, but they provided the
first free English Plication in
I.pwer Canada, and laid the foundation foT a Canadian nationality. The
Secretary's salary was always many
months in arrears, and he frequently
complained, with unfortunately but
little satisfaction, that not only had
he given his time for some years
without remuneration, but that he
had expended even his own fuel and
candles. It was not unusual for
teachers to be censured "for not
keeping school at all," or for giving
too many holidays, or for tardiness
in opening school in the morning,
and eagerness in closing it in the
afternoon. At least one teacher was
warned that his arrears in salary
would not be paid and that he would
be instantly dismissed "if he did not
treat his wife with greater kindness."
The Royal Institution for the Advancement of Learning supervised
the establishment of McGill College
and directed it in its infancy, for
under the Act of 1801 all property
and money given for educational
purposes in the Province of Lower
Canada was placed under its control.
James 'M-Qill is described by his
contemporaries as of '.'a frank and
social temperament"; in figure, "tall
and commanding, handsome in youth,
and becoming somewhat corpulent in
his old age," and in his leisure
"much given to reading." James McGill died in 1918 and in his will bequeathed to the Royal Institution for
the Advancement of Learning, in
trust, the sum of £10,000 and his
Burnside Estate of forty-six acrea,
together with the dwelling house
and other buildings for the erection
on the estate, and the endowment,
of a University or College.
. The first Principal of McGill was
the Reverend George Jehoshaphat
Mountain, who was appointed Principal in 1824 while the university
was only a name. The official opening did not take place till June 24th,
!82!l, and wns attended by what the
contemporary press called a gathering of "numerous and respectable
individuals." Anxious years marked
tho early history of McGill, due to
lack of funds and quarrels between
thu Board of Ihe Royal Institution
and the Governors of thc College.
In November, 1848, the Governors
had only lhe sum of £54 at their
disposal. They divided it between
Ihe Bursar and the two Lecturers
in proportion to the amount of sal-
aiy in arrears and as a result the
Lecturer in French, M. Montier, received £2 lis. as his share from
January 1st, 1848, to November 29th,
1848. Thai was the full amount of
salary receive-1 hy hirp during the
year; but hu still, says the author,
htui his cow and his garden!
Dr. D. C. Maccalum wrote an
account of medical student life about
this time. s "A large proportion of
the students," he said, "were men
verging on, or who had passed,
middle age. Indeed, several of them
were married men and the heads of
families. There was sufficient of
the youthful, however, to keep things
lively, 'Footing Suppers,' practical
jokes, and special country excursions
to secure material for practical anatomy were of frequent occurrence.
The last, involving as it did a certain amount of danger, commended
itself particularly to the daring
Bpirits of thc class, who were always
ready to organize and lead an excursion having that object in view.
These excursions were not at all
times successful, and the participators in them were sometimes thwarted in their attempts and had to beat
a precipitate retreat to save themselves from serious threatened injury.
The first real progress was made
when the late Sir William Dawson
became Principal. "When I accepted
the principalship of McGill," he said
in his reminiscences, "I had ''not
l:cen in Montreal, and knew the college and the men connected with it
only by reputation. I first saw it
in October, 18B6.   Materially it was
represented by
two blocks
id :
of   un
finished and partly ruinous buildings, standing amid a wilderness of
excavators' and masons' rubbish
overgrown with weeds and bushes.
The grounds were unfenced and were
pastured at will by herds of cattle,
which not only cropped the grass,
but browsed on the shrubs, leaving
unhurt only one great elm, which
still stands as the 'founder's tree,"
and a few old oaks and butternut
trees, mott of which have had to
give place to our new buildings. The
only access from the town was by
a circuitous and ungraded cart track,
almost impassable at night. The
buildings had been abandoned by the
new Board, and the classes of the
Faculty of Arts were held in tho
upper story /of a brick building in
the town, the lower part of which
was occupied by the High School."
A direct appeal for financial assistance was then made to thc citizens of Montreal. It met with an
encouraging response, which greatly
relieved the situation, and was what
Dr. Dawson, forty yenrs later, called'
"the beginning of a stream of liberality which has floated our University barque up to the present
date."
Thejnore recent expansion of McGill to-ita present strong position is
well known. The appointment of
Sir Arthur Currie as Principal and
thc still more recent election of .Mr.
K.-W. Beatty,* President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, as Chancellor
have given it a practical administration which is calculated to ensure Its continued progress as an
essentially National University. In
the Epilogue to hit volume Professor
MacMillan writes: "There is a new
spirit in McGill. To-day its pulsing life, under the guidance of its
great Canadian leader, reaches
through all grades and faculties and
departments of its students as it
has never done before. There is a
general forward movement unhampered and undivided by considerations
or competitions of sections or of
faculties. The University is closer,
loo, than it once was to the current
of national feeling. It is seeking to
Minister to Canada, the land which
gave it birth and from which its
greatness sprang. But while it will
serve Canada, Tt will continue to
draw its students, like the true
"Studium Generale," from every
country on the globe, and to send
them back to serve their individual
countries to advance the enlighten-
ment of the world. McGill's first ,
century has been a century of trial,
but a century of *great accomplishment of the world." The publishers
of "McGill and its Story" are S. B.
Gundy, of the Oxford University
Press, Toronto, in Canada, and John
Lane in London, England, and he
