Growing Power
Of Western Canada
A recent Ottawa dispatch reveals
thc fad that, according to official estimates. Quebec coiuinucs to outstrip
Ontario in increase in population and
is steadily closing up ilie gap between
the two provinces in point of numbers
of people. This is a development
which has been in progress for somc
years now, wilh thc result that Ontario is gradually losing that preponderance of political power which it
once enjoyed at Ottawa.
As is well known, tlic basis ot representation of the provinces in tlic
House of Commons is fixed by the
British North America Act, which
provides lhat Quebec shall always
have 65 members, and each of thc
othci- provinces such a number as will
give the same proportion of representatives lo its population as thc.
number 65 bears to thc population of
Quebec, and it is also provided thai
following each decennial census a redistribution of representation shall
take place on thc basis of the population   figiucs   thus   ascertained.
Trior to the census of 1901 the unit
of representation for all Canada was
22,900,���that is, each group of 22,900
people was entitled to a member at
Ottawa. Tliis gave Ontario 92 members- to Quebec's 65, a difference of 27.
As a result of the 1901 census, and thc
increase which had taken place in
Quebec's population, the ifnit was
raised lo 25,367, with the result tliat
Ontario's representation fell from 92
to 86, because, proportionately, Quebec's growth in population was more
rapid thau Ontario's. Following the
census of 1911. the unil was again
raised, this time to 30,819, and Ontario lost four more members and is
now represented at Ottawa by 82. "On
thc basis of tlic recent official estimates, Ontario will, following thc ccn-
- &{is of last ycar, lose at least two
more members, leaving it only SO.
1 Thus in .two decades Ontario's representation will have decreased by
12, leaving only a margin of 15 between Ontario and Quebec, as compared with 27 only twenty ycars ago.
The same change in position is taking place so far as thc Maritime Provinces arc concerned. Nova Scotia,
which had 20 members prior lo 1901,
dropped lo IS after the census of xhat
ycar, and 16 16 following the 1911
census. New Brunswick fell from 14
lo 13, and later to 11. Prince .Edward
Island from 5 to' 4, and now to 3.
The opposite result is shown in the
West. Prior to 1901 Manitoba had
only 7 members, Britisii Columbia 0,
and the Northwest Territories 4, a lo-
- tal  of 17.    The census of 1901- raised
these figures as follows: Manitoba lo
-10, "a" gain" of 3;~.British "Columbia 7;
a gain of 1; Northwest Territories 10,
fi gain of 6; Yukon 1���-total 28. Following the 1911 census, these figures
wcrc again increased, and- tftday thc
representation is: Alanitoba 15, British Columbia 13, Saskatchewan* 16, A!
bcrla  12, -Yukon 1.   'Total '57.   -
Thus  while     the  representation' of

The effect of this growing political'
power  of   thc   West  in   the   national i
Parliament    is fraught with    trcmen-l
dous  possibilities in the shaping    of]
national   policies   and   in   a   probable!
vcry   radical  change  in   thc  financial
and  fiscal  policy     of  the  Dominion.
This increased power in  national affairs,  coupled with     the  pronounced
tendency   of   western   people   not   to
divide   upon   old   party  lines,  but   lo
unite   upon   great   questions   of   principle and policy irrespective of former
parly divisions and views, clearly indicates   lhat   a   ncw   rc-alignmcnt   is
about to take place and that all former political conditions arc due for a
Thc incidence of population is,
therefore, bound to have a profound
effect on future Canadian policy. This
will be true not only as between West
and Kast, but is maikedly in evidence
within the boundaries of thc old provinces. Ontario is becoming more
and more an industrial centre, where
the populations of thc manufacturing
chics and towns are growing while
the rural population is declining. Quebec, too, is developing rapidly in an
industrial sense, bul in that province,
unlike Onlaiio, agriculture is also expanding. Iu fact. Quebec is forging
ahead of Ontario in more than population, thanks to the far-seeing and
aggressive good roads and agricultural policies inaugurated by tlic provincial authorities. As a result, thc natural resources of Quebec arc being
more rapidly and scientifically developed than arc thosc of any other pro-

Arthur, Winnipeg, Saskatoon mid Edmonton, with Vancouver as the ultimate goal. The usc of Hying boats in
Canada would undoubtedly be. greatly
developed owing to the largc areas of

and after what had already been accomplished in establishing aerial
routes much imagination was not called for lo conceive of a flying boat

This Wili Help!
The wear and strain of life has
tended in recent ycars to produce
nervous debility in a large percentage of oui population.
Thousands are affected with a feeling they can't exactly describe. They
are always tired and droopy, lack ambition, have poor appetite, look pale
and suffer from depressing headaches
and insomnia.
This condition is full of peril. It
is the stepping stone to invalidism,
the beginning of a shattered constitution. _
We advise everyone in this condition to take a good medicine at once
and"try to get well while yet there is
Probably no better advice can be
given than to use Dr. Hamilton's
Pills, vvhich have become famous in
restoring the sick to good health. A
general toning up of the system at
once takes place. The whole body
is vitalized by rich and purer blood.
The appetite is increased, food is
digested and naturally strength rapidly increases. Headaches go because
the bowels are regulated and all
wastes are carried off.
There is no experiment about using Dr. Hamilton's Pills because
thcy certainly restore the sick, as
a trial, will quickly prove. Just as
good -for the old as the young, and
suitable to the needs of women and
children. This grand family medicine
should be in  every home.

Copyrighted. Printed by special
arrangement with Thos. Allen,
In spile of thc protests of her aunt,
thc two ladies arrived ten minutes before thc hour set for dejeuner, and
Rugglcs 'suffered sweet agonies of
rapture as Ruth gave him her hand
and he looked into her violet eyes.
The excitement of thc situation had
brought a delicate flush to Ruth's
checks and a vivacity to her maimer
such as Ruggles had not previously
observed. She seemed in somc subtle
manner nearer to him, less of the
- goddess and more of the mortal' maid.
He could not keep his eyes from her.
Promptly upon the hour, Miss Challand and Darthea wcrc ushered in ,by
the stately butler, and, having been
greeted by thcir host and introduced
to ..tlu- Misses Downing, they turned
to Ruggles, who was waiting quietly.
Miss Challand, feeling not "quite at
her case, was slightly stiff. Darthea's
rosy color deepened and her eyes
were filled with an intense curiosity.
It seemed to her that she had never
-seen so great a change in a person in
so few months. The happy, light-
hearted, careless boy had suddenly become a man���and. a vcry attractive
man, at tliat. Hc was thinner and
seemed to have grown taller, and his
face, which she thought of as rather
round and pink and had always been
as smoot'' as a babe's, was now lean,
rather pale, wilh shadows still beneath thc eyes, and hc had a short,
crisp, fair mustache. Formerly, hc
had worn his yellow hair rather long,
especially behind thc cars, and had
brushed it straight back from his forehead, whereas it was now cropped
barely long enough to part, with a
ruthless sacrifice of thc waving locks
on cither side.
His dress was different, too, for
while always neat aiid particular in
his costume, Rugglcs had had but
little  to  spend ou  clothes.    But he
 had_closely_obscrvcd-Pembroke _and
had tried to get as near as_ possible
thc samc effect, not only in points
of dress and barbcring, but in his
manner of conducting himself. He
might have had a far worse model,
and what with Pembroke's natural
taste and case and Ruggles's quick
adaptability, the effect was excellent.
But theie was something subtler
than this. Rugglcs had seen and
suffered and been ti listed with rcs-
ponsibiltics since Darthea had packed
him from her haughty ptcscncc, while
his change of fortune and the respect
which it commanded, on every sidc
had given him self-confidence. Though
as natural as ever and with the samc
unaffected politeness, he no longer
sought constantly to please. Hc seemed rather one to bc pleased.
But if Darthca found a change iu
Rugglcs, then no less did Rttggles sec
Darthca through different eyes. She
was as charming as ever and with thc
same evident stamp of birth and
breeding, but for somc reason Rugglcs was conscious of a curious sense
of disillusionment. Darthea seemed
callow, youthful ;md undeveloped to
thc point of childishness��� aud a child
that seemed destined to arrive at no
other maturity lhan that of her ycars.
Hc could not help comparing her to
such a vital futl-naturcd girl as Ruth,
with her swift understanding and
generous sympathy.
Thc luncheon passed pleasantly,
and a littic after three Miss Challand
and Darthca arose lo take thcir departure. A shower threatened,' and
Rugglcs^ offered to lake them to their
destination in his car, which was waiting below. Thcy were going dtrcctly
homc, and after a slight demur Miss
Challand accepted his offer.
Mustapha in his black suit and let,
opened the door. As Darthca stepped into thc superb limousine, with its
luxurious fittings, she was conscious
of a littic thrill. Few girls who havc
not groivn-up in thc lap of luxury
arc able to remain indifferent to the
atmosphere of a powerful automobile.
It represents t.o many things besides
mere vulgar wealth, the evidence of
which  one might find  in  clothes  or
jewels or a house. For the car suggests romance, imperious progress,
swift motion, a freedom of environment, distant regions, and the spice of
danger, all to be achieved while comfortably cuddled in the lap of luxury.
It is a sort of magic carpel to waft
one from the chill blast of winter
winds to the sunny slopes of Olympus or from scorching sidewalks to
cool mountain heights. Yachts are
all right in their way for those who
like thc water, which many do not.
Besides, if small, they are cramped,-
and if largc, they are dull, and thcir
relations to passing people and things
are not so intimate.
Ruggles gave the address to Mustapha, who mounted beside the chauffeur, and they glided off as silently
as a gondola.
"What a lovely car," said Darthea.
Ruggles smiled.   "Yes," he answered, "it's quite a change from my old
bike.   It seemed sort of funny, at first,
to be riding around in it and knowing i
that it was my own, but I'm getting!

"Is it really as bad as that?" Miss
Challand asked.
"So Pembroke says.   The bones of

somc taken    out.      It was a mighty
lucky thing for me that Hamid Pasha

"I should be vcry glad to advise I

Changing Status
Of Afghanistan
New Ruler Negotiating With Russia's
New Government
For a long period. before the war
Afghanistan vvas practically a Briiish
outpost for India. The Amir governed the country as hc thought well;
but, for the better protection of India,
the British restricted the Afghans
frtfm alliances with foreign powers.
Indeed, the foreign, affairs of the
country were practically under British
control, and for. this right of restriction a handsome subsidy was paid
annually to the Amir. Shortly after
the war ended a new Amir reached
the throne of Afghanistan as a result
of the assassination of his predecessor
and the new ruler invaded India and
apparently expected ,z rising -in India to occur simultaneously with his
invasion. In this he was disappointed, and a British-India army of a
quarter of a million men met him near j
thc border. There was some fight-j
ing, aftcr which a ncw arrangement I
was made, under which the British 1
subsidy was withdrawn and the Amir
left free to control his own foreign
affairs. The collapse of Russia is given as one reason for this concession,
but another explanation is that Britain requires all her military resources
in the Far East to hold lndii itself in
he new Af-
egotiating a
new treaty with thc new Government
of Russia.

Alberta Seed
Again Successful
Possibilities of the Brooks District as
a High Class Seed Produces Area
The success of farmers on irrigated
land in the neighborhood of Brooks,
Alberta, in winning a large share- of
the prizes at the Idaho State Seed
Show at Pocotello, Idaho, recently,
has been followed up by even better
success at the British Columbia Seed
Fair. At this fair, out of twelve samples of seed grown on irrigated land
in the Brooks district ten were aAvard-
ed prizes. First prizes were .won with
alfalfa seed, red clover seed, white
Dutch and clover seed. Marquis
wheat, field peas, spring vetch seed
and alsike clover seed were awarded
second prizes, while third prizes were
won with winter vetch seed and
dwarf garden peas. All this seed was
grown with irrigation last season.
These successes0right in thc heart
of districts that arc famed for the
production of a high quality of seed,
amply demonstrate the great possibilities of thc Brooks district as a high
class seed producing area.

Jaliva having been the first European

Owing to the immense importance of
paper, it has been necessary to amplify the ancient modes of production
and bring into use other materials
than those employed in olden times,
materials more plentiful and cheaper.
Thc result has been a decrease in

Substance    Common    in   Geological
Formations Makes Experiment
Widely ^Interesting
Railroads in Esthonia seem in a
fair way to discard coal in favor of
bituminous shale, a substance common enough in geological formations
to make the Esthonian experiment
widely interesting. Lacking coal, the
Esthonian provisional government has
been investigating the possibilities of
shale and as thc report comes by way
of Helsingfors, shale is now being
used for a good many purposes. Thc
gas factory at Reval, for example, is
using shale exclusively for making
gas. But, so far, shale has not been
adopted as a fuel, and wood is being
burned in the fire boxes. The factory
probably waits to see how completely shale can be used to run railway
trains, and the lailway factory in
Rcval is now experimenting with fire
boxes sulable to using shale in a locomotive. That it can bc successfully
used, however, seems to have been
proved. Cost is a strong argument
for lhc use of shale, and 3, marks for.
.1 pood, or some 30 or 40 pounds, of
shale, as against 30 marks for thc
same measure of coal makes it vcry
much cheaper. It would bc odd, bul
not impossible, if later events should
show that in using shale for fuel the
little-known country of Esthonia is
leading the world.

Lack of Raw
Material in Europe
Greater Part of its Population Not
Producing Anything
Speaking on "The Economic Situ��
ation in Europe" at a meeting of the
Delphian Coterie at Cannon Street
Hotel, London, P. A. Molteno said
that thc outstanding fact was that
Europe was not earning its daily
bread. Thc greater part of its population was not producing anything,
owing to' lack of raw materials, lack
of transport, and lack of coal and
food. Unless credit were obtainable,
deprivation would be superimposed
and currencies would not pass muster. So far as thcy were concerned,
the result was felt in the fall in thc
value of the sovereign, about 25 per
cent, in America. Even in the victorious countries the situation was very
serious, and it could only bc met by
increasing thcir output of goods to
pay for imports. They must all work
harder and spend less, and aim at a
better scale of living.
Tt was essential for them, Mr. Molteno continued, that Germany should
be fully occupied with work, and her
recovery in the economic sense would
bc greatly to their advantage. They
were now selling largely on the continent to countries which could not
pay thcm, and because of that, they
wcrc unable to pay America. They
sorely needed the surplus output of
other countries, but at present they
were not in a position to buy freely.
Russia, hc insisted, must be brought
into thc economic system, as her vast
resources were essential for thc food
supply of Europe.

Foch say that he had visions afe the
battle of the Marne. The general
called ife vision. "I do not call it
a miracle," he says, "but in a
supreme moment clear vision is
sometimes given to a man compelling him to feake certain measures
of enormous importance. I believe
I had such vision in the battle of
the Marne, on the Yser, and on
March 26feh, 1918. The victorious
decision came from the Supreme
Divine will."
Joan of Arc had visions. She
performed miracles. She was
burned as a witch. Foch had no
visions. He performed no miracle.
His worst enemy has never accused
him of witchcraft. Yet God gave
him the vision that brought victory.  . -- , _

Greenwood's Got The Cup
Hurrah! boys, hurrah!
Greenwood lias the cup.
It was hard working got it boys,
Not a streak of luck.
It sits in Goodeve's window
Gleams in the wintry sun;
The school boys stand admiring.
Spin tales of fast games won.
The poor old fogies come along
Rheumatic and crippled up,
Stroke their beards aud repeat the fact
That Greenwood won the cup.
Hurrah! boys, hurrah!
Now lhat Greenwood has the fame,
Be sure she'll never loose it, boys,
Hold on to her good name.

Dear Sir:
In the Vancouver Province of
February 7th i noticed the speech in the
Local Legislature. by"F. J. A. McKenzie,
M.L.A. for Delta, advocating the supply,
by the government, of "Free Stumping
Powder to Ranchers,"
After some thought on the possibilities
of such an action I decided to write a few
lines for publication, in your paper,
bearing on the subject.
This idea is not a new one to me as I
have had it in -mind "for some time and
discussed it with various local people.
Mr. McKenzie has sounded the key
note of agricultural-development in B. C.
;. If free powder was- supplied tomorrow
there would be a stampede, of. ranchers .to
secure it.. As soon as the frost is out ol
the ground these hills would .be ringing
with the sounds of blasting and'. land
clearing operations aud b}- the end of the
season a tremendous additional acreage
would be.in a producing condition. Development, would then follow as the .night
the day and" where .we.now have deserted
mining towns we would "then have-prosperous agricultural communities.
. .The- Department of- Agriculture has
sent lecturers and demonstrators through
"here froni.time to time,.for years, at considerable expense to the Province. Today what tangible .results are there of
their visits? Supply, the rancher with
Free PoNvder and there would be results
inside of twenty-four hours, increasing
from day to day.until".the end of a.few
years"the transformation would be beyond description". - , ' 'Xy"
��� '; If the .Government" is really desirous of
developing.:.the -^Agricultural Industry;of
this province it could dispense with the
entire"Agricultural"Department, thereby
securing much.of theiiecessary funds: Y
"' Supply. Free Powder" to the rancher and
'agricultural-development-would; come as
a tidal wave that' would y overwhelm the
Province iii prosperity;1 ;." ��� ,'..
