earning the Business
Attract The Tourists
tt is an economic truism that the imports ancl exports of a country must
balance. Thai is to say, if a country imports more, than it exports it must
pay thedifftirt'nee. in gold, which means that It sends' money out ot the country, ihai is, exports it. Thus is the balance maintained. On ilu- other hand,
i( a country -exports.more than it'imports then if has to be paid, which means
an Import of gold. Thus thc country whose exports in raw materials, iialur-.
al products, manufactured goods-and general merchandise.exceed imports of
a like character, and to whom the importing countries" must thero Tore remit
gold in order to balance accounts, can hardly help bui, prosper and grow
wealthy. y\
There aro. however, what are termed, invisible imports. For example,
Great. Britain is obliged to import food and other necessities of life on a huge
.scale, and it not infrequently happens that British exports of-coal and luunu-.
factures do not equal these imports iu value. 'Thus the balance of tangible
trade i.s against Great Britain. But this is more than offset by the fact.thai
the mercantile marine of Great Britain'is the greatest trade carrying agency
in the world and all countries, pay-tribute.'to Britain. The earnings ol
"Uritish shipping constitute a great but invisible import; and these imports,
like exports, add to the naUomtl income, arid, wealthy
There,s another class of imports which operates In the same advantageous way, and one in regard to which Nature has equipped Canada to reap
great benefits if the Canadian people make full use. of their opportunities. Wo
refer io tourist traflic. A tourist brings at least one thing w'ith him���money.
31o '..ponds it in travelling and hotel expenses, in means of recreation and
pleasure, aud in purchases"in the country visited. Making Canada attractive
lrom the stand point* or* the tourist is, therefore, good national business. It
���wlli not only draw countless thousands of visitors froni other countries, but
H will encourage Canadians to-spend .their vacations in Canada, thus keeping
their money at:work for and in Canada,'and iu making: them boiler acquainted
with the Dominion and its enormous possibilities.
As already stated, Nature has done its part in richly endowing Canada
wlik some of the finest scenery in the world and by making the Dominion
a veritable sportsman's paradise. The Canadian climate, both in summer
and winter, makes a strong appeal. But these things are not enough In this
age. Tourists not only demand these things, and a marked change from the
-environment in whicli tlfey live most of the year,, but they" lrfsist on all moil-
�����rji comforts anil conveniences, and go where they can be obtained.
Canada must, therefore, be made a country noted for its good roads if it
is* to .capture any largo share of the automobile tourist traflic which has ��ow
: reached such large proportions. ���   Canada must cater to the needs and tastes
of all tourists by chains of good liotels; by bungalow camps, attractive sum-
jihjv and winter resorts. -
Tourists will go where the greatest beauty beckons, the best roads lead
and reasonable comfort and necessary conveniences can b.e enjoyed. A
motoring tourist along'a good road arriving at a town or village which presents a well kept and clean appearance, streets well treed.* an attractive little
park, and residential lots, both back and front, tidy and with 1 roes, shrubbery,
* grassy spaces and'flowers, and where the hotel,no matter how small, is spotlessly clean and good meals served, will almost certainly stay awhile. But if
the town or village is the opposite of these things, it is even more of a certainly that the tourist will hurry right on.
It costs some money to make our prairie cities, towns and villages pleasant and attractive. But; if lakes'* more of tinie ancl patience'than it does real
money to 'transform them as many have been andi-are being .transformed into
places of real beauty and restfulness. It is the. development of the right
.type of community public spirit that'really counts^in the-achievement of results. '." ' -'-..  ���
The securing of a fair share of the growing tourist traffic of the continent
is something that no Canadian:city, town or village can afford to neglect. It
is'cash business, and frequently leads to larger and unexpected business developments, because many a tourist while on pleasure bent js also -keeping
an eve open foi-investment and business opportunities.
y And tli making of the home town bright, clean and attractive is in itself
paying dividends-lo all the townspeople in increased local pride and pleasure
���at/home throughout the whole year.

Vodka Has Bad Effect

The re-introduction ,by the. Russian

many iu that land- for the growing increase of loafing ancl abstentfion from
work in Soviet factories.
The whole press, led by Economic

A  Reciprocal  Tariff
Canada Would Reduce Duty ..On Cattle
If United States Takes First
Hon. W. R. Motherwell, minister of
agriculture, announced in the'House
of Commons that the Canadian Government was prepared to adopt a
"brick Cor a brick policy" with _ the
United States in the reduction of
duties on cattle. "Every step taken
by the "United States Government," ho
said, "in the way of a redaction ln
duty on Canadian cattle will be met
by a. corresponding reduction in the
Canadian duty against American 'cattle. We have a. brick for brick policy. That Is to say every brick tho
Americans tako off the tariff wall
against us will bo met with the removal of a corresponding brick from
our tariff against American cattle."
Mr. Motherwell announced that the
government this month had passed an
order-in-council authorizing the minister of finance to take' such action as
may be necessary in the direction of
reducing the Canadian tariff on cattle
in the event of the United States making similar reductions.

Madame Lenin Disillusioned
Tired of Sovjets Asks Permission to
Settle in England
Madame Lenin, widow of the great
Bolshevik leader, has had enough of
the land of Soviets and has applied for
permission to setLle in England, according to .a dispatch to the London
Times. The Russian authorities- are
doing their utmost to restrain the lady,
who is known there as Comrade.
Krupskaya, from carrying out her intentions. Not, tobe sure, that they
are so enormously fond of her, as she
has been a merciless critic, but because they fear that she'-will devote
her time Jn England to the writing of
an expose of the Red movement that
would be like a smashing-thunderclap
In the Bolshevist camp. "Tt is plain,
however, that Madame Lenin is disillusioned as much as. Emma Goldman
and Alexander Berkman. Pier desire
to break away from Russia at this time
would again show the ironical conflict,
between the"'dreams of the ideologist
and the hard facts of reality. If
Madame Lenin succeeds in getting out
of Russia, wliich is after jill no easy
matter, as Trotzky discovered, she will
be able to give a true picture, of Russia and none of the naive accounts
that the world had from such credulous individuals as constituted-most
of the different missions that, went to
Russia for investigation, and who
were shown only'the polished surface and not the ugly inside of

Great Activity Shown
in Greenwood Mining
The following excerpts are taken
from the annual report of tlie Minister of Mines, and refer to the activity
of mining properties located in Greenwood :
In spite of the persistent suggestions fronr those unfamiliarr..,with the
activities in the'..-.boundary section
that mining is dead, the prospects in
the vicinity of Greenwood never look-'
ed better since the closing of the Canada Copper Corporation smelter some
years ago.
If those living in the town had
accepted this verdict it is probable
that there would have been a tem-
���porary suspension of activities'; but
owing to the healthy optimism prevailing amongst the members of the
mining fraternity, for which, they
are to be congratulated, another lea?e
of life has.been accorded the district.
Results may not be forthcoming for
another year.
Elkhorn Fraction." This claim, ail-
joining the Providence mine to the
south-west and owned by W. McKen-
Jzie, of Greenwood, Avas leased 'and
bonded to .-G...S. Walters and associates, of Greenwood, in 1024. A crosscut was driven in a south-easterly
direction from the bottom of the
shaft, which cut the extension of the
Providence vein at about 40 feet.
Drifts were driven' on the lead 15
feet to the north-east and 2b feet to
the' south-west,' developing*' the. vein.
which varies from 6 to IS inches in
width, for that distance
The ore-minerals are galena,' zinc-
blende, pyrite, gold and silver in u
gangue of quartz and calcite. Free
gold and silver are noticeable with
the naked eye and appear^to be associated with the calcite-filling. A
small shipment was made to the
gold and silver were obtained frd'to
oxidized material on the. surface, The
ore-minerals are galena ancl pyrite
in a gangue of quartz.     *'
Strathmore���This property was reported upon in 1924.' Since that time
5 tons of silver-lead ore was shipped
to the- smelter.
. Spotted Horse���The lower tunnel
on this claim was driven ahead during the early part of the year unci the
lead developed for about 75 feet. Owing 'to financial troubles work has
been discontinued for the present.
D.A. Fraction���This claim, reported
on in the Annual" Report for 1924, is
being developed by a crosscut tunnei
driven about 125 feet below the outcrops of the veins. James Skilton
and Jim Graham, of Greemvood, are
operating the property. Two veins
have been intersected, but not explored to any extent up to the present. Samples from these veins taken
by the owners assayed as follows:
0.87 oz. and 0.14 oz. in gold, 43.6 oz.
and 14.4 oz. in silver to the ton. The
ore-minerals are pyrite, marcasite, ar-
senopyrile, and magnetite in a gangue of quartz and silica.
The maple sugaring industry iVon
the up-grad* again, The yearly
sugar production with its equivalent
in syrup decreased from 22,000,000
pounds in . the '80s to 20,000,000
pounds a few seasons ago. For 1925
production is equal to 26,512,289
pounds of sugar.

Providence���J. W. Clark et al, of
Greenwood, leased the Providence
mine dump and have shipped several
hundred tons to the smelter at Trail,
carrying values in gold, silver, lead,
and zinc. Most of this material is
second-class ore sorted from the high
grade shipped in previous ,years to
Trail and represents a large tonnage.
Gold Pick Fraction���This claim, situated approximately three-quarters of
a, mile north of Greenwood and besde
the C.P.R. track, is owned and being-
worked by W. Raveley. of Greenwood.

recently laid before E. W. Beatty,

for assisting boys ,oyer seventeen
years of age" to come to Ca.nada.
Sir John said that more British, boys
were going to Australia because the
age limit for assisted passages to
that country was higher than Canada's.
Increasing prosperity in the agricultural industry, resulting in reawakened interest in the: acquisition
of Canadian farm lands, has had the
result of raising the average value
of western farm lands fronu$37 per
"acre in 1924 to $38 per acre in 1925,
For the year'Trince" Edward Island
shows the highest increase at $45

between the two cities on Canadian
���Pacific lines. . In telling of the
charitable and naturalization aid
given Canadians by the Canadian
Club of Boston, Mr. Johnson said
there were some 900,000 Canadians
in the State of Massachusetts. Of
this number 80,000 are in Boston.
Sir Esme Howard, British Ambassador to thc United States, stated
on his arrival in Toronto on a C.P.R.
train that the question of. European
peace was the most urgent and immediate problem of the day. It was
necessary for Great Britain to assist
in maintaining peace ancl the League
of Nations^offered a snitable vehicle.
Sir Esme claimed that, if the League
disappeared England would be compelled to join��some European combination against any country whicli'
threatened to dominate the continent.'
