Jf the groat mass of voters neglect lo cast theii;.ballots, democracy is Jn
danger because ihcy are leaving the dour wide open to'the entry of interested

(iio recent Presldeniia! election an unprecedented effort was mado to arouse
,rhi_ voters front their apathy and get them lo (ho polling booths.
In the Presidential election of 1S0G when William Jennings Tiryan made,
his famous campaign lor "free- silver," eighty per cent, of the qualified voter?
went to tin' polls. A quarter ol.' it century kiler in .1012 with all the excitement of a three-cornered contest between Wilson, Taft and Koosovell, only
(i2 per coiit. of tlu; voters actually voted, and every election between these
dates revealed a steady decline.
During the weeks preceding this year's election every known device, was
employed by tho National Civic federation in a groat, "get out the vote" campaign to remedy Lhis siate of affairs aud arouse the voters to a. souse, of their
rospou.-dbiiily. Tin; radio, tho movies, thc newspaper and magazine press,
ringing bells, blowing sirens, tooling whistles, tho pasting or stickers ou automobiles and milk bottles, tho offering of a magnificent trophy to tlie state
recording the largest proportional increase in votes cast, and advertising on a
nation-wide settle were called into action. With what result? According
to tho latest figures available, less than one-half the people entitled to vote
took lho trouble to do so.
Much the sami' thing is recorded in Canada, and even in Great Llritaln,
where (he proportion is higher, rarely more than 70 per cent, of lho vote is
What is tlii- reason? Are the people really apathetic, uninterested and

wrong with ilie electoral systems in vogue? Even admitting a considerable

Irish Boundary Question .
Ulster Ignores the Commission on the
Boundary Issue
1 .-Tho governments of both Great Britain   ami   Northern   Ireland havo informed the boundary commission that
thoy do not care to submit statements
to the -commission, or appear before it
by counsel or otherwise, according to
a statement issued by tho commission.
The government of the Free State,
it.   added,   has   submitted   a   formal
slaiem'ent regarding Article .12 of lho
boundary treaty under which the commission was constituted and also has
in lima ted  its desire to appear before
j the commission by counsel at a later
j meeting In London.
1     The  refusal  of  the  Ulster  Govern-
! meiii to have anything lo do with the
I boundary   commission   ls Interpreted
;is presaging the failure, of the commission to accomplish anything.   The
Uritish expression of   lack   of   desire
to appear is accepted as moaning tliat
Greta Britain lakes the position that
the    commission    was   appointed    to
hear what the Irish have to say, and
not the British.

Under the terms drawn up, Germany not only grants most favored
nation treatment to Great Britain, but
gives guarantees against discriminatory treatment and limitation of imports. Tlie Uritish Government binds
itself t.o introduce in parliament a bill
removing all the war restrictions still
imposed against the Germans in England. This means that no discrimination will bc made between Germans

Ottawa Considers Question of Charging Eskimo With Crime -
. Tho department of justice has under
its consideration the question whether
a charge _pf murder will be laid against,
E-Ter-Goo-Yuk. an Eskimo, for the
death of a tribesman, Oob-Pa-Tow-
Yuk, north of Baker Lake, in the
Northwest Territories, more than -a
year ago.
It is understood, however, that steps
to arrest the murder suspect will hardly be taken at'present for several reasons. Some doubt exists as to the
probability of obtaining a conviction
on the available evidence, and, as
E--Ter-Goo-Yuk is in the Coronation
Bay district, tho cost of sending a
patrol to locate him. and the expense
of transporting oflicc'rs of the crown
to hold a trial at Chesterfield Inlet
would he enormous.

With    Invention    Have   Been

A new euro for tuberculosis has
been discovered by Professor Moil-

the hospitals with a vaccine taken
from two apes in the Copenhagen koo.
The cure is known as tho gold cure,
and consists of the preparation of sulphur sodium of gold which is termed
sanocrysiu, which is injected a_few

injection at first seems to hasten death
but it is now accepted as the most

Dr. Lamb Inspects Hospital
Dr. A. S. Lamb, as representative of the Government, paid a
visit to the Greenwood & District
Hospital on Thursday last, and
expressed himself as surprised at
the progress that had been made
in such a short period. He was
pleased with the general appear-
nace and the arrangements that
had been made, and suggested
some few alterations that might
be made in the spring or as soon
as the Board of Management
were able to secure the money
necessary to the improvements,
Instructions were given as to
the forming of by-laws required
by the Government, _ which, will
be followed out by the Board at
an early meeting. Dr.. Lamb
approved of the appointment of
various members of the Board
from the various districts, as it
was necessary that each district
should have the opportunity of
being represented; in 'the govern-
ment of the Hospital."-Dr. Lamb
trusted, thai the districts would
show their, appreciation...of the
Hospital by generous support
both, in cash' and material, as by.
this support.the Government were
warranted in assisting financially..
