I. John the Baptist Testifies to His
Disciples Concerning Jesus . (vv. 29-
1. Jesus as thc Lamb of God (v._29).
"Lamb" was familiar to . thc Jewish
mind. It denoted a substitutionary-
sacrificc for sin. Christ.was the true
lamb to which every sacrificial offering pointed. He was the lamb which
Israel showed should be brought-to
the slaughter (Isa. 53:7), upon whom,
the Lord laid man's iniquity, Christ
was God's lamb because he was the
one set apart from the foundation of
lhc world to make atonement for
man's sins (1 Pet. 1: 1S-20).. John
invited his disciples to behold the
Lamb of God.
2. The Baptizer with thc Holy
Ghost (vv. 30-35).
The Spirit descended upon him, as
Isaiah said (Isa. 11:2). John then
knew for a certainty-that he was tlie
baplizcr with thc Holy Ghost. The
same Holy Spirit will bc given to all
who ask for him (Luke 11:13).
3. Jesus is thc Son of God (v. 3-1).
Being lhc Son of God, he is one in
nature with God.
II. Two Disciples Following Jesus
(vv. 35-37).
As a result ol the Baptist's testimony, two of the distil'..- .-wtc hiin
and follow .ki���a At John's request
they looked. Tliis look was sufficient
to induce thcin to fobo'.v .iestis; A
���sincere look upon Jesus is always
sufficient. John .��� icl not become"tn-
viotts of Christ's success, but rejoiced in it (John 3:26-29). "Al! Sunday.school teachers should so'Tvitncss
tliat the pupils..will look to and follow Jesus. This is thc whole method, the sum and substance of salvation.
III. The Disciples Abiding With
Jesus  (vv. '38, 39).
Seeing the disciples following hini,
Jesus madc inquiry as to their object
Their reply showed thc desire to go
apart privately where thcy could disclose their hearts lo him. Hc invited

Proportional   Representation
The action of--thev recent Industrial
Conference held at Ottawa in unanimously -endorsing the principle of
proportional representation' and asking the 'Dominion '���Government to
take tlic necessary steps to study.the
question, .with a view to its application in elections in this country,
coupled with announcement that thc
Government had decided upon such
a course, brings- appreciably nearer
the day when this reform-iu thc electoral machinery of Canada will bc-
coms an accomplished fact.
Thc principle of proportional representation has now been approved
by such large and influential bodies
as the Canadian Council of Agriculture^ representing the organized far
mcrs of Canada; the Great War Veterans' Association," the National Liberal convention .at * Ottawa-last August, the Labor party. Social Service
Councils, and numerous other smaller organizations. The Speaker's
Electoral .Reform Conference of thc
British Parliament has reported in
favor of the application of P.R. to
certain classes Of constituencies; it
has been incorporated in the constitution of the new German republic;
is already in operation in Belgium,
Tasmania and other countries, - and
has been tested with complete satisfaction and success in municipal clcc-
���-tions in the -Britisii Isles, and also in
.the "Universities elections for_"thc
Britisii House of Commons. '_._.-
Nevertheless,-. :we venture to say
that if the." average Canadian .was
asked to explain what proportional
representation mcaiis,.and how it
��� operates,'he would be" hard put to it
to give an intelligent answer. And
it may as well be franlcly .admitted
that it is not an easy matter to explain in a short-article, especially to
those who have pur present system
of election of representatives to parliament, legislatures and municipal
councils by bare majority vole firmly
fixed in thcir minds. However, in
view of thc fact that proportional
representation is now a live issue in
tliis coiintiy, it is-well that au attempt, at least, should bc made to
explain this ncw system, its method,
aud the results which are sought to
bc attained by it, even though such
an attempt may necessitate- a series
of two or three articles.
Thc aim and object oi our electoral
machinery should be to secure justice
and freedom to al! citizens, whether
in a majority or a  minority,  to   thej
: cnd';;that they may- 'be ' fairly/ represented  in   parliament, .and.'also   that
.thcy should have the/widest possible
choice in electing those who- are to
"speak for them in parliament'.', Edmund Burke said that. the virtue of
the House of Commons ""consists, in
its being tlie express'image of.-lhc'na-
.tion." -If it is- not that, it quickly
loses  the confidence    of the people,
; and. with that' confidence the authority. it   should 'possess   to   speak   and
act for the people.: ._.,_:__J^"___/
"It must.be  frankly admitted     that

In other words,' ' minorities under

any'true'system of responsible, -representative government. Proportional representation aims to correct
these inequalities and give the nearest
possible approach to "one vote, one
An essential feature of any proportional scheme: that will yield the
most satisfactory results is thc creation of constituencies returning several members, instead of the present
system of one-member constituencies.
Proportional representation can bc
applied to onc-hicmber constituencies,
but not with the same beneficial results which three, foiir. or. five-member constituencies will" produce.
Under proportional' representation,
therefore, the city of Montreal, instead of being divided into some ten
one-member constituencies, would
constitute one electoral district which
would elect 10 members. The same
���thing'would bc true of .Toronto, Winnipeg and other largc" centres. In
these centres, whereas under the existing system it is next to impossible
for the working men to secure the
election of a representative, their
combined vote would secure to them-
their proportional representation
from the city as a whole. What is
true in-the case of Labor, will be true,
so far as returned soldiers/prohibitionists,- independents, and olhei-|
minority groups arc concerned. They
would be able to .secure representation in proportion to' tlicir strength
" In."these Western Prc;,;..r.rs, instead of'Manitoba-being divided into
fifteen one-member constituencies,
Saskatchewan into sixteen such constituencies, and Alberta into twelve,
constituencies would bc grouped, '.and
while the same number of -en
would bc elected, thcy would be chosen from larger geographical divisions, each electing several.-.members,
thus providing lhat any onr -.inority
school of thought iu each of thc present one-member constituencies could
by their combined vote secure the
election of at least a representative
among thc number elected iti the
larger electoral  division.

bc made to explain the method of
voting. and .election - under. - prop/) r-
tional representation.)

Large Inflow of Settlers and Development of Natural Resources

to a depth of 135 feet, but due to the
slow imperceptible and constant motion of this great mass of asphalt, the
drills were broken off and no further'
borings could bc made. It was found,
however, that the asphalt was of thc

Onc'of the most curious and seeing

filling of the lake. Although thc natives dig all day, in depths varying

why lift it to ridicule the tuft

*^1S7HEN, on the morning of November 11th, 1918, the guns were hushed and
vv glad tidings flashed across the world,' there followed with the Nation's
Prayer of Thanksgiving, one yearning query, which found echo in the faster beating hearts of wives, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and sweethearts. That
query was, "How soon will our boy be home?" And, from France and Flanders,
from Italy and Egypt, from Palestine and from far-off Siberia, there came an
answering echo, " How soon, how soon, may we go home?"
PANADA caught the spirit of these longings, and at once resolved to satisfy
^ them. It was an appalling task. Shipping was tragically scarce. The composition of the Army of Occupation had not then been settled. And other parts of
the Empire as well as Canada were looking for the speedy return pf their men.
HPHE problem was this. The half-million men that Canada had overseas had
���*- taken more than four years to transport to the field of battle. To bring
them home in a few months was a gigantic undertaking���one to. tax all Canada's
ingenuity and resources. Canada solved the problem, but it meant crowding into
a few short months, an expense for demobilization which it was impossible to foresee.
HPHEN, too, besides the sentimental aspect of the necessity for bringing the men-
A     home quickly the economic side could not be overlooked.   That was, to trans��
form efficiently and speedily the nation's army of fighters into a national army o��
workers. ;

Itself in
Two Parts
The answer to the question "Why
does Canada need another Victory-
Loan?" divides itself into two parts,
(a) To finish paying the expenses
of demobilization, and the obligations we still owe to our soldiers,
(b) To provide national working capital.
Obligations     ^e   obligations   to   soldiers
to Soldiers    clude:
These national expenditures are war expenses. They
will be accepted readily by ev&y citizen who gives
thought to the task which Canada faced following the
Armistice, and to the success with ijvhich she has met it.
That already incurred cost of
bringing home troops from overseas.
The payment of all soldiers still undemobilized. This
ihclud.es-more than 20,000 sick and wounded who are
still in hospital, and who of course remain on the Army
payroll till discharged.
The upkeep of hospitals, and their medical and nursing
staffs, until the need for them is ended.
These three items alone will use up at least $200,000,000
of the Victory Loan 1919.
GratllitieS There is also the gratuity which
hag been authorized, and has been
and ia being paid to assist soldiers to tide over the period
between discharge and their re-adjustment to civil life.
For this purpose alone, $61,000,000 must be provided
out of the Victory Loan 1919, in addition" to. the .
$59,000,000 already .paid "out of the proceeds, of the
Victory Loan 1918. -    .
Land Furthermore, soldiers who desire
Crw4-4-1.��������-. sn*<��+ to become farmers may, under
.^eiTiement . the. Soldiers' Land Settlement
Act, be loaned money by Canada with which to purchase land," stock, and implements. The money so
advanced will be paid back; meantime, each loan is
secured by a first mortgage. Up to August. 15th,
29*495 soldiers had applied for land 'under.the terms
of this. Act; and 2-2,281 applications-had been investigated, and the qualifications of the applicant approved.
For this purpose Canada this year requires $24,000,000.

Canada needs .national working
capital, so that\ she may be able
to sell on credit) to Great Britain
and our Allies, the products - of
our farms, /forests, fisheries,
mines and factories. \
You may ask "Why sell to them;if they can't pay cash?"
The answer is, "Their orders are absolutely essential
to the continuance of our agricultural and industrial
The magnitude of these orders and,' the amount of employment thus created, will depenjd upon the success
of the Victory Loan 1919.
Tlie> " Why " farmers and /manufacturers (and
of Credit
that includes ithe workers on these
orders) mustV be  paid   cash   for
their productsV Therefore, Canada
must borrow 'fjnoney   from   her0
"citizens to give credit, temporarily, toljGireat Britain and
. our Allies;  Actually, no money will;pdss out of Canada.
If Canada does not give credit, (other countries will;
', and they will get the trade, and have the employment
, that should be ours, to distribute1! amongst their workers.
Arid remember, we absolutely need .these orders to. maintain employment.    If we don't (firiance them business
will feel the depression, emploiripent will not be as
plentiful, and conditions everywhere will be adversely

Journal^. September 16, 1S9&.
''Sain Adler, who crossed the
Thompson river on his way down
from Cariboo forty years ago; having gone up via Lillooet and th��
Fraser river, spent a,night, in town
this week. Mr. Adler has within
the.past two years visited Atlin,.
Dawson, and.the northwest in general. He has probably done what
no other man living ever did.
Forty years ago he rocked out of
the Cariboo the gold to make a
wedding ring for the lady whom
he-afterwards married. Twenfey
years ago in Granite creek he
rocked out the gold that was made
into his daughter's .wedding ring,
and this season in Atlin he again
set to work;.- wilh a roeker and
rocked put enough gold to make a
wedding ring for his grand daughter, and printed it to her.at her
recent marriage.V X'XyX] '"��� :"X-  :yiX

One of the Greatest Helps to Good Teleplione Service
All Work Guaranteed
Morrison Block, GRAND FORKS. B.C.
Telephoning is regarded as so easy that many people do
not take the trouble to see that Ihey telephone correc'ily.
One should speak directly into the instrument, with the lips
" but a short distance away. When that is done, the voice does
not need to be loud, and moreover the person at the other encl*"
can hear distinctly.
When children do so much telephoning, it would be well
lo instruct them lo telephone properly.
