Disease Among Eskimo
Adopting  White   Men's  Methods  May
Lead to Extermination""
Not many years will elapse before
the Eskimo will bo exterminated by
disease through adopting white, men's
method of habitation, declared Dr.
D. E. Scott, jvho recently returned to
Edmonton after spending one year at
Aklayik, in the delta o fthe Mackenzie
River. He has been acting as medical
officer to the Royal Canadian Mounted
Polico Arctic posts and working
among Indians and Eskimos, in behalf
of the department of Indian affairs.
"While this prediction has been made
by others ln the" past, Dr. Scott adds
that Eskimos and Indians ol! the delta
are. also suffering from Intestinal par-
asiiic attacks, due to eating raw llsh,
rabbits and other meats. This, however, he claims, is not u serious problem to contend with, but such diseases,
as cancer aud appendicitis, he stales,
are becoming too prevalent among the
In the old days, when snow houses
were their temporary homes, thc Eskimos were healthy, states the doctor,
but since thcy commenced living ln
cabins and shacks, tuberculosis has
broken out among tltom, and this dread
menace threatens to wipe them out.
Among the delta Indians, Dr. Scott
found that in all but ten per cent,
thero were symptoms of tuberculosis.
Their methods of living were such that
the disease was on the increase.
Speaking of law aud order in the
north, Dr. Scott declared that the
Eskimos and Indians of the Western
Arctic regions are the most law-
abiding people in tho world, and he
could not recolelct one police case
(hiring the year he was among them.
In the eastern regions, however, where
missionaries have not penetrated, an
occasional murder was committed, but
this, the doctor says, is really the Eskimos own law at work.

Very Discouraging For Those Who Go
In  For Professions
A New Yprk newspaper is making
an appeal-'for the better treatment of
that city's engineering staff. It is an
extraordinary sidelight on the bread
and butter value of a technical education when college graduates must appeal for compensation almost as generous as that of plumbers, bricklayers
and plasterers. ,.   .
Of the engineers employed by the
city of New Vork, and the same scale
presumably Is common throughout the
continent, ten per cent, receive less
than ditch diggers. About twelve pei
cent, earn as much as foremen ol
street lubor crews; while tho majority,
aro not so well paid as the everyday
mechanical craftsman.
It is a peculiar fact that the so-
called "white collar" employments, including bank clerks, bookkeepers,
draughtsmen employed by architects,
engineers who lay out the vork for
their better paid ditch diggers, and
mining engineers, arc all in comparison to the trades and to unskilled
labor shockingly underpaid.
If there is not a racial turn for the
better in these matters the next generation is,.going to witness a shortage
of college men seeking technical educations. If a young man cannot
make a decent living at his., chosen
profession after, spending a mint of
money ahd four or Ave years of his
time in a university, ho is a3 fool to
pursue it.���The Toronto Saturday

' Toronto.���Judging by orders';received- for the Dominion loan, 1925 has al-
Miost set a record for successful govr
ftrnment'financing. Orddrs for financial institutions have been larger than
In either of the previous refunding
loans, each of which was recorded as
bo highly successful. Had all the or-'
ders received from institutions been
accepted in full; only/a small amount
of bonds  would have been available
..fof other classes of investors. It is
understood, However, that-tho large
orders have been scaled down by the
syndicate to the extent of more than
50 per cent., and, as a result, more
than one-half of.the loan willbc available to the smaller private buyers. In
adopting this plan, the syndicate has
followed its policy of endeavoring' to
arrange, as far as possible, to fill all
orders from private investors, and to
assure a coast to coast distribution of
the new loan.-     .���
It is a" fact that a new Dominion
loan brings.out a certain class of in-
: vestor who will allow his funds to remain idle for several.months'previous-'
' ly. Thc reception accorded the new
loan is a tribute to the financial stabilr
Ity of Canada and Canadians. The
fact that Canada has proven herself
fully capable of financing.her own"re-
��� ftuirements plays an important part in
so strengthening Canada's "credit
abroad that her securities are in demand in the principal money markets
of the world.

Two ministers, Hon. Charles Murphy and Hon. Dr. .-Belaud are, it is
understood, retaining office, only until the elections are over and there
will then bo some re-adjusting of portfolios.

Vancouver.���Decision on British

not be rendered prior to a general revision of freight rates, according to a
letter received by the Vancouver"f)oard
of trade from Hon. H. A. McKeown,
chairman of the board of railway commissioners for Canada.
7Mr. McKeown takes the position that
the seasonal movement of export grain
demanded early action; while tho same
element of urgency was not present
in the^caso of domestic grain rates.
The same applies to express rates,
upon which the board has been asked
for a judgment. -

Wyoming Man Who Inherited Title

Sheriden, Wyo.���Oliver Henry Wallop, aged 63, Wyoming rancher, who
succeeded to the title of Earl of Portsmouth through the death of his elder

Earl of Portsmouth, in London, will

The new earl did not appear to regard his rise to the British peerage us

"Red"- Propaganda
Country   Fears   Effect  of   Intercourse
With  Soviet Russia
Tokio.���Pear . of Bolshevist propaganda In Japan ls ever present
among the heads of the government
and it was recently reported that the
home department is planning to introduce a bill nt the next Diet session
fof the organization of a special police
service to deal with the situation. It.
is said a yearly outlay of 3,000,000 yen
will be asked for this.purpose.
The government has not been amiss
in adopting measures calculated to be
effective in coping with untoward developments that may follow the reopening of the country for intercourse
with Soviet Russia. Of those measures the most important is, of course,
the new peace preservation law, which
the Diet voted at 'its last session.
It has been found that channels for
the introduction of "Red" propaganda
aro rapidly increasing owing to the
growing frequency with which the
peoples of the two countries are exchanging visits for commercial, touring and other purposes and.also because of the freedom with which new
publications are being imported.
~ The. home office regards it as imperative in consequence that a police
service of special nature be perfected
to deal with the problem of propagation of radical thoughts.

The history of North Bay is one
that, is not generally known to'all
Canadians, even though the name is
familiar'from "the- Atlantic to the
Pacific, as. a great railroad centre.-
North Bay :was originally discovered
by Samuel de.Champlain in 1615.and
was a. post on the old trail from the
Ottawa to the. Great Lak^s In the
time of the great .French .explorer.*..
The first settlements here are recorded; as- in-1882,-Vith -the - ccming
of the first train .over,, the Canadian
Pacific': Jtailway. .North Bay ^was
never incorporated as a village. Like
topsy, it just grew and hecame.officially a town in 1891. . Tn 1895, the
population was. 2,024, in 19t)5 it was
3,813,"and in 1915 It.TOS 10,041, and-
�������������, North Bay. (3) The Pont Office.
the last municipal census placed it
at 13.01J-, .while the rapid growth of
the town this year indicated that it
wiU be atv'least 15,000 when it takea
its position as a City next August,
' The. Canadian Pacific paved the
way for North Bay.' The old Grand
Trunk followed with, its first train
in June, 1888. Ne?t was Northern
Ontario's tfwn raihvay, the Temis-
kaming and Northern Ontario, which
was built north to-the "mining areas
from North. Bay. in 1904, the first
train being operated out of here on
