Hon.   Dr. J.  D.   MacLean
Gives  Interview
Hon. Dr. MacLean arrived in
town on Friday on one of hie
periodical visits. He has had a
busy time since his arrival meeting
old friends and visiting different
par- 8 of the riding.
Monday night he met the City
Council and discussed informally,
questions of mutual interest relating to the Province and to municipalities.
Speaking of general conditions
throughout the Province, he was
very optimistic. Lumbering is
more active than at any time ���ince
the war. The same is true he said
of the mining industry.
Agriculture has given only a fair
return in the last two years as
prices of farm produce have been
low and an inadequate marketing
policy of fruit products have given
the producers a poor net return on
their operations. The recent cooperative marketing scheme adopt*
ed by the fruit growers, however,
should stabalize this industry
Capital is again beginning to flow
towards this province.
In 1918. the wages paid in the
Province were $50,000,000; in 1921
$80,000,000, while the number of
industrial concerns conducting
business increased in these three
years from 1786 to 2275.
In reply to question as to the
Provincial Party, he predicted that
its life would be short. It is, he
said, impossible for a party composed of many diverse elements to
survive. Its leaders are real estate
magnates, corporation lawyers and
others of that type. It has some
supporters in the rnral districts
but, these are chiefly among men,
who live on, but do not make a
living off their land. Before the
next election, they will have, to a
great extent, disappeared, and be
again supporting their natural
leader, W. J. Bowser.
Asked as to the date of the next
election Dr. MacLean remarked
that the life of the present Legislature will not expire until January
of 1926, and with the improved
financial and industrial conditions,
it would be unwise to interfere
with., the- growing stability and
prosperity within, the.Province.
What about provincial redistribution? he was asked..
.; This 7 will; undoubtedly receive
consideration at the next session of
the Legislature, he replied. .
-, The ,' present.: redistribution. is
very, unfair. Somer rural districts
\yith;5000 or 6000-voters 7 have hat
one member^ while-5 , or 6 other
ridings with less than 1000 voters
each.areValsb represented by one
member.; . After taking . into account sparse settlement; large extent and. distance from the lirger
cehtres,. it is .evident that there,
must be a: readjustment. of the
boundaries of electoral districts to
conform to a greater degree to the
Principal of Representation according to population. W    7"'   V  ,.

No Reason For Discouragement
Grenfell of  Labrador j
American   Paper  Pays  Fitting  Tribute :
to a Reirarkable  Man j
Dr.  Wilfred   Cre 11 it'll  is  one  of  the!
l'u'Hijile wlio needs no introduction any- j
where and who long ago been me i';iin- !
oils as a practical pacilisi���Lhat is, as
a  messenger of goodwill and helpful- :
ness  io human  beings  wliose  lot  lias;
not been cast in pleasant places.     As
everybody  Iniows,  he   has  practically'
dedicated himself to making life bet-;
ter worth living in regions where na-j
lure .I'or the greater part of the year:
i.s in her sternest and most forbidding!
mood.     A mere summary of -what he;
lias  accomplished  in    Labrador    and j
Newfoundland  constitutes one of  the;
noblest  epics of human  self-sacrifice!
and human achievement.     It is a per- j
sonal privilege and inspiration to meet, j
a man of such ��� lave    anil   wonderful;
character as this, a man who has de-;
liberately  nicked  out for.himself one;
of Ihe most   dillicitlt   and    strenuous
tasks of helpfulness lo he found anywhere, and who has stuck fo if with
unfailing cheerfulness "and courage for
three decades, with no motive but that
of   sheer   pity   and   lo\-e..--l'.altimore
There has been a lot of imv.-iM. and quite uncalled for "blue ruin" talk indulged iu by some "Western Members of Parliament and other Western men
during the past few months. Such talk, instead of nelng constructive and
helpful in bringing about reform and improvement, is almost wholly destructive and  hurtful, and makes betterment the more difficult of attainment.
Western Canada ha:- suffered from a number of hard years a nil" adverse
conditions. llut this i.s true of the whole world. Furthermore, it. was inevitable following the gigantic orgy ot destruction in which all civilized nations engaged during l.'il. ���!-]!).! S, and the inflation which took place during
those fateful war years. Anybody who anticipated anything else was a.fool
wiio gave no heed to all the lemons of history.
'I'iiis Western country, ami other' countries the world over, have liad
series of bad year'; i'rom lime immemorial, and such periods are always more
severly fell in a new and only partly developed country than in those where
conditions are more settled aiul therefore more, stable. l.ut this is no cause
foi  pes. imisin and downright discouragement.
There is a good doai lo be said for fhe theory or Kiuile Cone. It is no
now theory; in fact it is as old as the world. Lot one man begin to talk
pessimism to his neighbor, and let his neighbor repeat it to a third, and the
third to a fourth, and so on, and il: will not bc long before by their of faith
and confidence they produce flic very conditions which before only existed
in their imagination. Lacking confidence themselves, they inoculate others,
and with lack of confidence Ihey ;,(-|0|>| methods which soon operate to clog
thc wheels of industry and  pros..ess.
Reversely, let men adopt the view, and act.��upon il, lhat "day by day in
every yy thing.; are getting belter nnd better" aud they will get better.
After all, what: has the West to be blue about?      Saskatchewan is the
chief grain  producing  section  ol' Canada.      It. produces one-half of all the
wheal   grown  in   Canada,  and  last  season  Saskatchewan raised  the  second

A Good Type of Settlers
Farmers from Iowa and Nebraska
Have Eyes on Western Canada
(By Or. C. Porter of Winnipeg)
Des Moines, Iowa.���AVhile I believe
the great Southwestern States will
send the larger number of farmers to
Canaua this year, Iowa and Nebraska
will contribute the best type. Those
going north from these two - States
have more money, better equipment
and are superior farmers; Agriculturally, Iowa and Nebraska are very
similar to Alberta, Saskatchewan and
Manitoba. Those now treldng to the
prairie provinces are the sons and
grandsons of former Canadians, Scan-
i ciinavians, and a considerable sprinkling of Europeans.      The pioneer in-
istinct. and love of.the soil are stronger in them than in the socalled Amer-
j ictin type  from  the great Southwest.
j-Tn one respect they are similar���the
j resolution..! o make a home on the soil
j in the Canadian Northwest. ���
I     T. V.  Bennett is  in charge  of.the
I Nebraska territory for the Dominion
Government, and A.. E. Pilkie in Iowa.
[ was in Omaha with Bennett and in
Des Moines witli Pilkie. Each is
most optimistic with their mail bulging with inquiries and their ofiices
crowded with men and women who
are planning to go north this spring.
The day r arrived in Des Moiues, Pilkie was sending to the prairies six
cars of settlers effects and was busy
making out certificates for owners of
the stock and farm equipment.   Each
\ car carried an automobile and a sniall
particular people*

Adrenalin Acts Instantly As a Powerful Stimulant
References in news columns of
papers have been made recently to
something called Adrenalin; it was
reported that people had been
"brought bach- from the dead." That,
of course was impossible and untrue, yet. adrenalin is in reality a
preventive, of death., A newly disclosed medical discovery, adrenalin, a
fluid .extracted from glands controlling
Tear, slops death- in "shock" cases.
According to medical scientists, adrenalin has been brought, to Rs present,
state of "perfection" by very extensive
experiments by two brothers, Dr. G.
W. Crile, Cleveland, and Br. Dennis
W. Crile, Chicago. Here is what the
public and medical scheme may, expect from it:
Adrenalin is a preventive of death,
where the thing Unit would cause
death is removed within six to eight
minutes after the heart slops beating.
Although in I his interval, a patient
may be pronounced deatl, the brain
an'd'otlierVcells are not dead', and the
state.-.of- death is not complete'..- ���-��� ' ���

tractor, and the agent told me his
prospects were much in excess of last
year, probably twentv per cent.
Bennett was equally busy aniFsaid
more of his prospects wer�� taking
money to buy l';irms than in other
/<fays��� though the man with three or
four thousand dollars and equipment
was in the majority. They will rent
ac first or homestead, explained Bennett to me, and later buy land. They
are better types, P.ennett explained,
than in other years, good settlers all.
While the majority of these
Nebraska and Iowa people are seelsing
prairie farm lands, both Tilkie and
Bennett said they were having.more
than the' usual ��� number of inquiries
about British' Columbia ranching proposition and fruit farms. . The Prince
j George district and the Okanagan
Valley is the objective point of many
of these prospects, these agents explained.
These two slates have enjoyed too
fine crops in succession and the renters have money 310w to get a start in
Canada. This lias proven a big lac-
tor in the movement, and also this
condition has given .many farmers
t whose hind down here is mortgaged, a
chance to sell out. his-equity and go

Time lies in wait for every man and
will get him sooner or later it something else doesn't. When time begins
to get a mint the question is, liow well
is he prepared to resist the downward
drag of years? VVe know this drag
is sure, but we all hope to make it
slow. It must be terribly disconcerting for a-man to suddenly have the
skids knocked out I'rom under him and
to miss the pleasure of the long, quiet
twilight bf lire.
Not that any of us are yearning for
that "quiet twilight" business, but it
is the best Ave will have when it
comes, so let's make the most of it.
It is a fact that men and women
past fifty years of age, who have perfect teeth, are remarkably free from
chronic disease. _. Very few people
who are past fifty years and who show
advanced pyorrhea and decay of the
teeth have anything like normal
There are people seventy to ninety
.who have nearly perfect teeth and
their splendid health leads us to believe that there-is a definite connection, in old age, between good teeth
and good health.
Many old people are vigorous .who
have well-fitted artificial teeth, much
healthier in fact than people of the
same age who have advanced pyorrhea, or a number of abscessed roots,
or both, in their mouths.
Good artificial teeth are Tar preferable to diseased natural teetli.
.. Artificial teeth are made from
porcelain. A great deal of careful
study has been put upon the shapes,
colors, types and contours of porcelain teeth.
The "making and-fitting of plates to
the niouth, and the arrangement, of the
teeth, both'from the artistic and from

British Government! Has Given Orders
For Twenty Tanks of Recent
"        . Design
Most of iis will remember the tremendous sensation. thatcwas caused
when the . deadly military engine,
known as the "tank," was first introduced under service conditions. As
is natural with a novel appliance, of
this kind,-the first produtcions "were
rather crude; but their success was
so manifest that expert attention has
| been constantly devoted" to their improvement. So much success has
attended this effort that the British
Government has given an order for
twenty tanks of the latest type. The
new-machines will attain a speed of
twenty-five miles per hour Avithout
overstrain, as.against eight miles per
hour with the old tanks; and whereas
the first tanks were* done after about
150 miles the new ones will have an
endurance of about 1,000 miles. Each
tank-has a length of 35 feet and is
provided with 'an ��� armored turret.
Special attention lias been given to
the design in order lo enable the lank
to be tised not only in the regular way
for attack, but as a tractor for hauling
heavy guns into position.

Prefer    Moving    Pictures
Waxwork Show
One of the amusements in England
which has been hardest hit by the conquering "movie" Is tlie waxwork show.
Only a couple of weeks ago the second
1 largest waxwork exhibition in tho
country, Reynold's in Liverpool���
which was second only to ,the famous
Madame Tassaud's in London���was
sold by auction, a Her having filled
for 80 years a place among the entertainments of that city,7 and the films
were blamed for the condition that
brought this about. Reynolds' was
sold lock, slock and barrel, even the
.Chamber of Horrors being knocked
down under the hammer to the highest bidder.
The wax figures in Reynolds' were
aftnost given away at the sale, so
little demand was there for them.
The efiigy of the ex-Kaiser, in' uniform, went for ��2, wliich probably
was a high enough price, considering
the present status of the once Imperial Caesar and the small interest
taken in wax figures of any sort.
The characters in the Chamber of
Horrors went for a song. There was
little hope of active bidding.on the
stiff, immobile murderers when sixpence would procure admission to a
show any evening that features live
assassins doing their slaughtering
with startling reality on the screen.

Air Strengths
Alleged  Inferiority of Great Britain's
Air Strength Compared to Other
What was the situation? The
strength in the air of Great Britain
and France had been said by the
Secretary of State for Air to be as
follows: Great Britain had 371 service
machines, France 1,260. In 1925 if
the present programmes were maintained, the figures would be : Great
Britain 575, France 2,180. The number'of squadrons was: Great Britain
34, France about S4. Taking the disposition of forces, there were for home
defence in Great Britain five squadrons, of which four were bombing
squadrons and only one was a fighting squadron, in France there were
available for home defence 61 squadrons, of which 32 were fighting and
32 bombing squadrons. Distributed
elsewhere we had 29 squadrons and
France about 20. Our 29 squadrons
were distributed as follows: Fgypt
and the Near Fast, IS; India, 0; allocated to the Navy, 4; allocated to
the Army, G. We built in this country in J 920, 200 airplanes for civil and
military purposes. France built
3,300���3,000 for military and 300 for
civil purposes. That was a most
alarming state of affairs. It had never occurred to him that a nation which
owed us immense sums of money
would find it possible to construct
these enormous armaments at a moment Avhen there was not the slightest encouragement to suppose that one
penny of this money could be paid
over at present, or in the near future,
or would be paid.
Just as in the past they could not
claim security for the people of this
country unless our fleet was adequate, so ' today they would be entirely lacking in their duty to the
country unless they were able to-afford Ihera the guarantee of a sufficient Air Force to defend them from
attack. There was no case here for
offence on the part of any other
power. It had been said that there
were great German air preparations
going on at this moment. He was
informed by oilicers who had recently
had an intimate knowledge of Germany that these statements we're
most grossly exaggerated, and that
there was no German ���air- menace
during the next two years at any rate,
nor could 'there be any air menace
from Germany combined with Russia.
If that was true, tlie situation became
even more alarming. He did 'not
suggest that any change could be
made this year, but that the Government ought to do something considerably more than they wero doing "at
present he was quite satisfied. This
country could no more be content during the next three, four or five years
wiih a position of inferiority in the
air than it would have been content
with naval inferiority prior to 1914.
Nothing less than n one-power standard was safe, and It was in terms of
safety alone that Governments and
Empires ^existed. Oa what possible
basis could it bo said lhat we should

Travelling In the Arctic
Under Good Conditions 45 Miles Daily
Is Not Unusual
A well-known Japanese explorer,
trader and prospector, J. Wada, of
New York and^Edmonton, was in Ottawa recently. He has- spent the
last 22 years in Alaska, Yukon and
the Northwest Territories.
Mr. Wada stated that conditions
of travel in the Arctic were such lhat
some days it was possible to cover
only one mile, but under ideal circumstances it was not unusual to travel
45 miles. He gave an outline of conditions in the north. In his opinion
the oil fields have untold possibilities
and as soon as further development is
carried on he predicts a stampede.
Fur is still the leading industry and
when this, great activity is supplemented by mining, the territories will
assume even greater importance than
they now command. Mr. Wada anticipates returning to the Arctic in a
short lime. ' .

Years found  Relief   and   gives   tho
Credit to Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Dean   Lake,    Ont.���(Special).���Mr.
Frank Ploude, a well-known resident
here, Is always'ready, to recommend
Dodd's Kidney Pills to all who suffer
from kidney, trouble.
"I have . suffered with my Kidneys
for the last six years," Mi-. Ploud*
states. "The pains at times were so
intense, I was unable to work. I saw
your advertisement in the newspaper
a year ago, and decided to give your
medicine a trial. All my pains have
now gone and backaches are a thing
of the past. If any poor sufferers are
troubled with kidney disease I would
implore them to take Dodd's Kidney
Pills. They would be surprised .how
quickly they would get relief."
Dodd's Kidney Pills have become a
family remedy all over the Province
of Ontario, because people have tried
them and found them good.
They are. purely and simply a kidney remedy. They help Rheumatism,
Lumbago, Diabetes, Lame Back, Heart
Disease and Urinary Troubles, because all of these are either Kidney
Diseases, or are caused by the Kidneys failing to do their work.
