The meter will rectify all these matters

Co-operation In  Politics
Tlic following article is an interesting prediction as to the solution
of thc political situation, by an independent, but close student of political matters:- -
The result of tlic Ontario elections
held recently have aroused Dominion-
wide interest. Much conjecture prevails as to ihc ultimate outcome of
thc groups of parties elected which
will necessitate a re-alignment politically before a stable Government can
bc formed.
The success of the Farmers' party,
whereby tlicy secured the largest
group numerically, at once puts that
party in a leading position and entails upon its members important responsibilities of government. There
should be no valid reason why that
party should not call to its aid support from other groups, and organize a Government to carry on the
affairs of the Province. There is no
great gulf, for instance, between the
views of the average Farmer member for a mixed rural and small town
constituency, and the Liberal member for a similarly comprised riding.
The Provincial Legislature is a magnified county council, and, aside from
extreme or faddist members, sufficient unity to carry on a stable progressive Government should not be
difficult  to  secure.
One feature, however, lhal may
Lend to prevent getting together on
the part of the Liberal and Farmer
members was thc attitude assumed
during the contest by Ilaitlcy Dew-
art. K.C., the Liberal leader. There
was no justification for his attacks
on thc Farmer candidates. They had
.every right lo run. They practically
and iu principle represented Liberal
and democratic viewpoints, and thc
results at the polls indicated that the
people upheld thcir entrance into thc
political field. In these circumstances it was folly to divide thc Liberal Mother   Graves'   Worm     Exlcrmina
United    Farmers'    movement in the'
East came  as  a surprise to  all.     In
the   Prairie   Provinces   the   party   is:
now   thoroughly   organized,  and   has
had greater    experience    in  political;
j affairs,  and bids  fair to  make every i
j bit as great, if not -a greater, show-j
; ing than  in  thc  East.    In  these cir- ���
cumstauces,   therefore, what   folly  it.
is to divide  the  forces    in the  West j
largely because a very small minority of old-time Liberals will not, for
purely    partizan    reasons, co-operate
with thc really Liberal Grain  Growers'  party.    There  arc  stna'.l  groups
of    these,   old-time   partisans   in   the
East and West, who, largely for personal reasons, and principally because
they   cannot   control   and   direct   the
new forces, refuse to co-operate. Thc
rank    and file  Liberals,    farmers  or
otherwise,    should    not tolerate this
dictation  or allow candidates to    be
foisted upon thcm because of    these
few malcontents.
The overwhelming mass of Liberals and Farmers in thc West sec eye
to eye on main principles. Their
forces should not be divided. Cooperation and harmony in political
action is plain common sense if results are to bc achieved. Thc Prairie
Province Provincial Governments and
tlie great majority of thc members
of thc Legislatures realize the facts
and heartily approve of united action. Thcy realize that in thrcc-
corncrcd contests the reactionary
forces may win out, since division of
Liberal support ensures domination
by thc interests of  Privilege.
The platform and aims advocated
by the farmers arc essentially Liberal. Thc majority of the better class
and intelligent farmers of Canada
are Liberal in their views. At present the farmers', or Grain Growers',
wing of Liberalism is in the ascendant, and should receive the undivided
support of sane Liberals. Since that
clement of Liberalism is in thc majority, thcy have the right "to assume
a certain measure of control and leadership. But they are fair and reasonable and desire co-operation and
support. There should, therefore, bc
no division, and thc personal views
of the few Liberal reactionaries
should bc disregarded. Adherence to
a common-sense course of united action in thc selection of well qualified
candidates would ensure triumph for
progressive principles at thc next
Federal general election. "

While it is true that in this-lesson
the disciples are witnesses of Christ's
glory, the full truth is that the manifestation of Christ in glory was to
give to the discouraged disciples a
foregleam of the Messianic Kingdom.
Thc hopes . of the disciples were
crushed when Christ announced his
death on the cross. They were unable to see how victory could issue
from death.
Jesus took with him Peter, James
and John, and went into thc mountain to pray. His chief aim in retirement was to get the disciples
apart into a slate of receptivity, so
that he might show them the method
of the Kingdom. Before going to the
mountain hc declared lhat there.were
some standing in his presence who
would not lastc of death till they
should see the Son of Man coming
in his Kingdom (Luke 9:27; Alatt. 16:
28). That their drooping spirits
might bc revived and their confidence
restored,    hc is transfigured    before

Incomes Diminished, Not Increased by War
Washington. ��� Million-dollar incomes in the United Statcs were diminished rather than increased by the
war. An analysis of income tax figures for thc ycar 1917 just completed
by. thc Treasury Department shows
that "war conditions in the United
Statcs had a decided tendency towards thc leveling of incomes. There
was a vast increase in thc number
and size of smaller incomes and a decided decrease in incomes of a million   dollars or  more a ycar.

These contests should serve as a

A Roomful Of Gold
$475,000,000 Requisitioned By
Bolsheviki From the People
Something of the Arabian Nights,
a memory perhaps of Aii Baba when
hc discovered ^the treasure -cave, is
suggested by thc story of Kokhak's
gold supply and thc visit of inspection
by foreign correspondents under the
guidance -of thc -Omsk Government's
minisIcr of finance.' About 1,440,000
pounds avoirdupois of gold; such is
said to be the reserve of the Kolchak
government at Omsk. Its value in
American money is placed at about
$475,000,000. ,"In one room there
wcrc about thirty tables loaded down
with gold in all forms, requisitioned
by thc Bolsheviki from thc people. .
.. . -Conspicuous-in this lot was a set
of solid gold-dishes, formerly the pro
pcrty of Mr.'Tercschtsclicnko.-one of
the wealthiest of the Russian nobility," The set of gold dishes," in thc
upheaval " of Russia, had- passed
through several hands before falling
to the Bolshcviki, and eventually to
the Omsk Government; and at least
one of possible heirs liad renounced
all title  to it
that   government   in   the   restoration |
of  Russia.    Most  of" the  gold,  how- i

Building Activity Continues
Number of Buildings Being Erected
Keeping the Trade Busy
Building activity continues very
brisk in the cities of Western Canada. Scarcely a day passes without
thc announcement of some new permits being granted. These arc mostly for residences, warehouses and
office buildings. Although there are
no, very largc undertakings, thc number of small buildings being creeled
is keeping thc trade busy. In Regina
permits wcrc granted in one day for
thc erection of a building for a bank
and another for a warehouse. Thc
estimated cost of these two buildings
is about $90,000. In Winnipeg on
the same day permits aggregating thc
same value were issued. As already
mentioned, these enterprises arc not
very largc, but the regularity with
which similar work has been undertaken throughout the- year-has- tended to keep the trade active.

Seven Handley Page  Machines  Are
Disabled on New Air Route
In the British House of Commons
Right Hon. J. B. E. Seelcy, under
secretary of state for air, declared,
regarding the recent allegations that
there had been a serious number of
fatalities on the new air 'route to
Egypt, that in the spring and early
summer there had been an urgent demand from Egypt for airplanes of
large size and endurance to cope with
the critical situation there.
Owing-to this urgency machines
had been sent by air instead of by
sea. Fifty-one Handlcy-Pagc airplanes were' sent,, of which 26 arrivr
ed safely. Seven were at various
points on the route disabled, and fifteen had been given up as wrecked.
One machine had crashed down
badly and four lives wcrc lost. There
were three other bad accidents involving four fatal and three non-fatal
injuries. At thc request of the chief
of the air staff, a special outside commission has been appointed lo "enquire into  the  matter.
The minister emphasized thc fact
that tlie choosing of this route had
nothing to do wilh civil aviation, and
again urged lhat at thc time the situation in Egypt had been critical.

widowed by thewar. will sacrifice her
furniture iu order to get enough
money lo return tn the countrv- of
her birth.
A buyer visits the flat, the woman
shows a bookcase; the price is agreed
upon, but when the doors are opened
a row of old school books is disclosed. The widow bursts into tears
and "explains that the books belonged
to her son who left his studies to take
up arms and was killed two months
after he had. left home.' The pros-
pecthe buyer consoles her, and to
help her forget her grief pays her
double the price asked.

this is true is not only shown by the
context and circumstances, but by
thc inspired interpictation of one who
was with him and knew all that happened. Peter said, "For wc did not
follow cunningly devised fables when
wc made known unto you thc power
and coining of our Lord Jesus Christ,
but wc were cye-wilncsscs of his

Father, honor and glory when there

Mount Zion  (v. 29).
The glorified King on this Mount
was intended to symbolize thc-Mes-
sianic Kingdom when Christ returns
to thc Mount of Olives in Jerusalem
(Zech. 14:4-17). This is still in the
future, and will bc literally fulfilled.

(vv. 30, 31).
1. Moses, who was once denied an

in glory, representing the redeemed
of lhe Lord who will pass through

Thcss. 4: 14-18).

III. Israel, in the Flesh, in Connection With thc Kingdom, Represented by Peter, James and John
(v. 28).
Israel shall bc called from tlicir
hiding place among all nations of thc
earth and shall be gathered.to Jesus
Christ the King, as the central people
in the Kingdom (Ez. 37:21-27).

was written plainly- there, and the

Pretentious Plot of Bolshevists Ends
~    In a Fizzle
Bolshevist plans for thc seizure of
Whitehall and of Westminster vvcrc
laid early during thc present year, it
has just been disclosed. A number
of extremists, most of whom arc still
engaged in Bolshevik propaganda in
England, and in the, United States,
met and discussed the plans for this
pretentious undertaking, which they
hoped would be executed by a so-
called sailors' and soldiers' union.
One of the plotters since has been
sent to prison, where he is still serving a sentence for having madc revolutionary speeches. The plot came to
naught, because of lack of support
and the watchfulness of thc authorities.
Pasha was a freethinker and a man
of the woild. He found all religions
good, and the lack of any more bestial and stupid than fraught with any
especial danger'of hell fire. For him
God was God, and while Mohammed
was his prophet, it was quite possible
that he might through thc ages havc
found need of other prophets, such as
Grahma and Confuscius ancl Zoioas-
ter and Jesus Christ.
Hamid Pasha was childless, and
this fact_had been the sorrow of his
declining years: Earlier in life he had
taken wives in accordance with thc
'Jaws of.thc Koran and Ottoman social custom, but these marriages proving , unfruitful, he had divorced his
womcukind, . amply providing for
them. He'wasenormously rich, having inherited" estates in'Egypt and
stock in the Suez-Canal. The Egyptian property, hc had ^converted into
cash, which ho,had investcd^with prodigious subsequent 'profit, in the joil
fielxlf of'B'atotim, at that time undeveloped. Still" later, he'ha'd disposed
of these .holdings
through his London, bankers in British, African, American and, other securities. Oddly enough, he was thc
holder of laige blocks "of American
industrial 'stocks.
Hamid Pasha had never been a
sensual man, bul he was sensuous lo
the point of aestheticism. Plis pleasure lay in such things as thc sight
of his almond tices in full blossom,
or thc odor of the jasmine which
clothed thc columns surr&unding his
Persian fount.iin, wlicieof the basin
was composed of ancient tiles, each
of which woukPhavc been found

Guimet. Thcir traceries were partly
hidden by delicate moss of a vivid
green, whicli-the-gardener was pei-
mittcd to lcmovo only in ccitaiu
Hamid Pasha loved also music, poetry, and thc dance. . To entertain
guests he had sometimes brought
gypsy troupes from thcir malhallah
in Stamboul. Hc loved also thc musical murmur of thc Bosphorus tides,
and as a spectacle thc mosques and
minasels of Stamboul aflame iu tlic

Fraternization Of
British Are Anxious to Cultivate the
Friendship of United
"Maintenance of thc future peace,
happiness and prosperity of mankind
rests undoubtedly in thc hands of thc
160,000,000 people who spea'- the language of Shakespeare and Lincoln,"
declared Frederic William Wile, of
London, at the Congress Hotel, Chicago, recently, speaking at the annual
banquet of thc National Implement
and  Vehicle Association.
Mr. Wile, Indianian, ex-Chicago
newspaperman, and for thc past nineteen ycars a resident of ' Europe,
where hc >is attached to Lord North-
cliffc's great journalistic organization,
made an cai nest plea for Anglo-American frateinity. He advocated it as
an ideal to be striven for in "the
enlightened self-interest both of the
United Statcs and of Biitain."
Though thc speaker confessed himself a warm advocate of the League
of Nations, he expressed the view
that a league of thc English-speaking
nations could of itself guarantee of
"safety" of democracy. "Between us,"
said Mr. Wile, "wc can dominate,
without domineering, God's whole
Mr. Wile said, in part.
"I havc not returned lo my country to pretend that thc Anglo-Amci-
ican horizon is cloudless. It is not.
I havc nol comc home lo proclaim
that Americans aic universally beloved in Gicat-Britain. They ate not.
What I do say is this���that the vast
bulk of the British people, thc sane
leaders of the classes, and particularly thc authorized spokesmen of thc
masses, arc warm ancl avowed apostles of friendship with the United
Statcs. They are cageily anxious
thai our laic comradcship-in-aims
shall nol prove lo have been a mcic
ephemeral bond. Thcy aic conscious
of thc mighty, the unselfish and the
indispensable aid that America rendered to Libeity's cause. Thcy recognise, from lhc bottom of grateful
hearts, that wc proved om selves a
friend in need and a friend indeed.
"The Britishers arc not blind lo thc
practical1 realities of the Anglo-Am-
"erican situation. They know that it
bristles with difficulty, but thcy do
not believe that any of them aic necessarily insuimountable. Thcy know
that in the months and years that
.lie ahead of us John Bull and Uncle
Sam arcjlcstined to bc foimidablc rivals for thejrade of thc world. They
know that the financial supremacy of
the globe has passed from London
lo Ncw York.- They know that Britain has become a debtor nation. They
know tliKt the Irident of mercantile
marine supremacy is slowly but surely passing to thc grip of this ncw and
mighty Neptune of the western seas.
They know how fabulously the cm-
eigcncics of war have magnified thc
wealth and industrial power o��_this
amazing nation.
"But thc Brilishcis believe that
along with competition with America
thcic is ample opportunity for cooperation, loo. Their view is thai a
heaven-sent oppoitunity is now .presented for team-woik between the
English-speaking nations iu every
field of economic, spiritual ancl political activity.
"You manufacturers of America
will do well, in my judgment, lo prc-
paic for one rnpoitnut new development in Great Brit.m.. Unless I am
much miscaken,_the days orficc trade
in England aie numbered. I look at
no distant date for lhc intioduction
of a protective- tariff iu thc United
Kingdom. It may nol at once assume
thc skyscraper heights to which pio-
tective-tariflf America has so long
been accustomed within its own domains, but a tariff of some kind is,
iu my judgment, a certainty and at
no fat-off timc. John Bull has hitherto maintained industrial eminence
thioughout thc world because of
cheap production. Thc days of cheap
production in England arc numbered,
too. The British industrial fabric,
shaken to its foundations by thc war,
lcquircs radical reconstruction. I
expect reconstruction, among other
forms, to assume the shape of a pro
tcctive-tarilt  England."'
Mr. Wile devoted a lan>* part of
his address to summarizing Britain's
achievements in thc war. lie said
that only an infinitesimal portion of
thc American people was aware of
tlicir magnitude. "How many of us
know that the British race lost a
million dead, ��nffcicd 3,000,000 casualties and mobilized more than  10,-
OSd Age Deferred
Business men who must speed up the works and make business
boom during these days���after the-war���must recognize the necee*
sity of keeping fit. When mind is befogged, when you have dull
headaches or feel logy, when not "up to snuff," keep the bowels
free with "a mild laxative. In the morning take a tepid sponge bath
(cold water may be used if it does not chill), follow with a brisk rub
clown; a sufficient "setting up" exercise in good air until you are in
a warm.glow.   Have you tried it lately?
Don't let the poisons accumulate in the intestines either, but try
a dose of castor oil tho first thing on arising, or a pleasant laxative
occasionally,"such as one madc up of May-apple, aloin and jalap, rolled
into a tiny sugar-coated pill, ancl sokl in every drug store as Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. Then a cup of hot water before breakfast,
and you'll feel better than a king! If you continue in life thus, you
can pass a Life Insurance examination at sixly.
If you wish to prevent old age coming on too soon, or if you want,
to increase your chances for a long life, you should drink plenty of
soft (rain) or distilled water daily between meals. Then procure at the
drug store Dr. Pierce's Anuric (anti-uric-acid). This "Anuric" drives
the uric acid out and relieves backache and rheumatism, as well as
kidney trouble, Anuric dissolves uric acid as hot tea dissolves sugar.

Steady Employment aad Prosperity
Hangs on Victory Loan.
Canada's future prosperity depends
to a great extent upon the success of
the Victory Loan. No country can
exist upon trade within its own boundaries. Canada counts on the trade
ivith Great Britain and other allied
countries to keep the flood of good
times in the country.
The surplus products of the farm
ind the factory, find their way across
the seas. The revenue of the farmer
and the manufacturer is dependent
on this trade relationship being sus-
���ained./- The employment of many
lands depends on the orders that
;ome to the firm. The pay envelope
only comes with steady employment.
Great Britain and overseas countries are still desirous of continuing
trade relations, but, overwhelmed
with war expenses, they must be
given credits for the time being. The
farmer and the manufacturer must
be paid for their products and manufactured articles in cash. Therefore,
Canada must finance the proposition
to keep the tide of commerce coming
r.his way. But in order to have the
inoney on hand to do this great thing,
Oanada must borrow from her people.
The Victory Loan offers bonds to
subscribers paying 5% per cent, interest. The guarantee behind^ the
bonds makes them an absolutely safe
investment. Victory Bonds are ac-'
;epted as collateral at any bank, and
jan easily be turned into money at
���1 profit. It is then to the interests
jt every Canadian, to subscribe for
ill the Victory Bonds he can, for ii
is profitable, it is patriotic, and it ia
necessary for the continued prosperity of the couatry.

Fond parents dream of a bright future
for their children.
They dream of the literary and musical
education they are going to give their
daughter, and of the high position she will
take in her sphere of womanhood. \
They dream of the education they are
going to give their son and vision him some
day as a clergyman, a famous lawyer, an
eminent physician, a prominent financier,
or a captain of industry.
But to make these dreams come true
������or even partly true���requires foresight,
planning and money.
To provide the money what plan so
wise as to buy Victory Bonds for each child?
