The Executive and all members of
tho Greenwood Hockey Club desire to
convey their appreciation of the support accorded them in connection with
the Grand Forks - Greenwood game of
Saturday last. An afternoon game was
more or less an experiment in hockey
locally but receipts amply justify the
venture and it is felt that as -the
younger generation are in this manner enabled to see the games, a lasting
benefit will accrue and Canada's National Game, will become more and
more popular as time goes on.

The second match was played in the
Greenwood arena on Saturday afternoon, Grand Forks team surprising the
locals-and romped away, with a 4 to 3
score. Both teams came in on. the
early morning train and the players
showed the strain of two games within twenty-four hours. The experiment
of holding an afternoon game proved
very popular and' the gate receipts
were higher than were taken in at the
Forks the previous evening. The ice
was never better and both teams-played clean hockey, as no penalties w'ere
given during the' three periods.
The locals started well and,within
two minutes on- a pretty combination
rush Jesse Puddy passed to Morrison
who scored. A few minutes later Puddy
added, a second for Greenwood. Both
teams worked hard, but Greenwood
had the edge in this periood. Grand
Forks' goalie made many wonderful
saves, beating Taylw on a couple of
solo rushes.
In the second period both teams
slowed up and combination play was
missed. Rushes were numerous, Eric
Atwood, the old-time member of the
Forks team, proving himself as good- a
player as ever started the scoring for
his side, which was followed a few
minutes later by a tally by Winters
Before the period ended, Atwood beat
the Greenwood goalie for the third
counter and put the Forks in the lead
The strenuous play began to show on
both teams, but more especially on the
locals as the team had to play intact,
while the visitors were able to use men

The victory for the Greenwood team
by 7 to 4 in Grand Forks on Tuesday
night put them at the head of the
league for Intermediate hockey honors.
A larger crowd attended than at the
first game.
The visitors were in good" form and
held the lead throughout. The first
period was 3-0, second 6-1 and the
third 7-4. Greenwood slackened in the
third period and the Forks team gave
them tlie surprise of their lives when
they slipped in 3 goals in quick succession. Jim Hallett made his first
appearance on tho Greenwood line-up
this season ancl he greatly helped to
strengthen the team. Ludy Frankovich
refereed very atisfactorily.
The next game will be played in

Government vs. Private Ownership
It does not call, for the vision of a seer, or the wisdom-of a seventh' non
'.cf a sevcnUi son, to realize that a "battle royal is looming- up on the horizon
cf Canada.1!! national lifeunvolving acceptance of one or tlie other of the two
policies noted in the heading'of thi? article. It will be a battle of giants,
with not merely millions or tens of millions, but hundreds of millions of dol-
)uva Qt stake '
The initial stages of tills gigantic financial battle are now being Waged
over the subject ot control and development of vast water-powers in various
parts of'the Dominion. In more than one:instance these.are linked up with
schemes of canalization, aa, for example, the. Great'Lakes-St.- Lawrence
waterways scheme, and the ling discussed Georgian Bay Canal project. 'Although both of these undertakings must-be carried out in the East, they aro
matt era of vital interest to Western Canada. :       i; v
Financial, commercial and industrial interests in Montreal and Toronto
may, be interested, and more cr less directly affected'by tlie deepening of the
channels of navigation between the present head,of ocean navigation at
Montreal, and the head of the Lakes ports of Port Arthur and Fort William,
but-the more vital concern of these financial magnates is centered in and upon the development of the huge water-powers which will- be made available
as part of this canal construction. '
The West, on the other hand, is more concerned about the greater waterways feature and the effect wni ch the deepening of'the water channels between the head of tlie Great Lakes and the Atlantic seaboard will have on
freight rates, both by water and rail, on the huge exportable surplus of
Western products.
So far as the Great -Lakes-St. Lawrence project ia,concerned, it is not
wholly a domestic matter for Canada. It is an international matter, inasmuch,
as a portion of fhe St. Lawrenco. belongs jointly to Canada'and the United
States, and the construction of the proposed deep canal system will affect
approximately forty million of thc people of the'1'neighboring republic.
1 . Eastern financial interests, whose real concern is. to secure private control of tlio vast water-powers to be developed, are busy raising the bugaboo
of--United States interference in Canadian affairs, United States control or
.Canadian resources, and are urging all the possible dangers of entangling
alliances. The old; worn-out stock arguments used at the time of the
Reciprocity campaign arc beginning to be trotted out orice more, the Old Flag
is to be waved, ancl all and sundry who do not sec eye to eye with the financial magnates look'ng with a covetous eye of this wealth of water-powers are
to be classified a3 traitors to tho Dominion.
There is some evidence, too; that, as on former occasions when questions
of great national moment were up for discussion and decision, attempts will
be made to cloud the real issue Ly again raising despicable cries of race and
creed, and seeking to set.one section of the Dominion against another.
Too irequently in'the'past, with great national policies at stake, thc
1 people cf Canada have allowed'themselves to bc swayed by these cries and
havc been made thc victims of their own .shortsightedness and foolishness iu
giving heed to such unworthy;-appeals. Now that Canada has largely put
these things into thc background arid is moving forward to a development and
prosperity'unsurpassed in-its past history, it is to be sincerely hoped that any
-and all such ignoble attempts will receive no quarter from the overwhelming
mass of the Canadian people; that, as a people, they will-put their foot down,
ancl put it down hard, upon any such campaign, the originators of which are
thc real enemies of and traitors to Canada.
Wc arc not pre posing to discuss- the respective merits of public and
private ownership. But we would most earnestly ask the people of Western
Canada t'o1 be on-their guard, and'in the discussions which are bound to take
place within the next few years, to keep their minds persistently on the facts
s of the case, and not be influenced one way or the other by catch cries, secUon-
< al, sectarian, or partizan appeals. It is the national good of all Canada, pres-
���cnU&nd future, that is at stake. ^

Gain New Vitality By Building
Up the Blood
There are many women who pass
their days in a constant state of
weariness." They have barely sufficient
energy t'o enable them to ...perform
their manifold duties. , Often they
have an aching head, a miserable pain
in the back, and limbs that feel as
heavy as lead. The whole trouble is
due to bloodlessness. No woman need
suffer in this way. It is "easy to obtain a supply of rich blood by taking
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills; The new
blood created by these pills rapidly
builds up the system; headaches and
backaches- disappear, energy returns
and the joy of living is felt once* more.
Proof of these statements is-given
by Mrs. Ed. Lanore, Storiey Point,
Ont., who says:���' 'For a long time I
had been in a very' miserable condition, always feeling tired out, sleepy
and weak. The least Work about the
house would leave me helplessly tired
and nothing that I did seemed to give
relief. Believing that a rest might
do me good, we moved to town, but,
contrary to expectations, instead of
getting better 1 was growing steadily
weaker. One day while"; talking to a
neighbor, she urged my taking Dr.
Williams'-Pink Pills; telling me that
her daughter had been in a condition
much like mine. This'persuaded me
to try this medicine, andi have much
reason to be grateful that I followed
her advice. After the use. of ; a few
boxes of the pills, there could be no
doubt that they were helping me, and
as I continued their use my health
and strength, came -back and now I
am doing all my own work arid feeling iri. tlie best of health. For this
splendid condition I must give iny
thanks t'q.D'r. Williams' Pink Pills,"

Danger of collapse following, a

Conditions In
Europe Described
Dr. Swanson Tells Of Situation
In Respect To Agriculture.
In Europe ���
One of the chief features'of an open
meeting of the Saskatchewan Livestock Association, held in Regina recently, was an address by Dr.-Swanson. who, as chairman of _thc -Overseas Livestock Marketing Commission, Jias but recently returned from
Europe, after making a study of conditions abroad. Dr. Swanson graphically described the situation in Europe, with her nations war torn and
weary, striving for pead and rehabilitation, desiring to practice the.age-old
agricultural industry because - of
recognition that therein lay the prosperity bf the'nation. He said that
there are many in tho old land who
believe that the future" of" the world
lies-with Canada and the British Empire.
Dr. Swanson said the fact was that
the,-old world was left shattered by
thc v/ar and many of the new nations
were still-imbued with the old ideals,
based upon nationalism and greed,
that a nation coukUive unto itself.
Speaking of tho great co-operative
movements in the province Dr. Swanson said the lesson they taught was
that there must be unselfish co-operation to develop an economic life. This
idea, he continued, was gradually being accepted in the old world. In his
view, after making a-close study of
conditions in Europe, was, said Dr.
Swanson, that three problems must
be faced'and solved with wisdom:
First, thc abolition of war;, second,
the re-organization of finance; third,
integrating industrial life.���These problems, he thought, touched the life of
Western Canada. "It came home, to
me while in Europe," said the speaker, "that cur. farmers on fhe economic
side have performed wonders. One of
the questions that faces us is that of
credit. It is an absurdity to. say our
��� farmers'can" solve that by doing away
with it altogether. Wc live in a prac-
'tical world, in which credit plays a
Agriculture in the West,1 said Dr.
Swanson, wa3 no longer r3elf-contain-
ed. "Wc produce for a market that
is world wide and -the financial aspect
is just as important as sound-produc-
,tior off the land. If we are going to
put our livestock into its proper place
and,raise.our agricultural standards
we must see to it that pur farmers
get a profit from their labors that will
improve those standards'of living."
Dr. Swanson then described conditions in Denmark, Poland and other
lands outlining some of the methods
employed there and ��� suggesting some
thftiijiight be followed m the west
with advantage.
���' "I believe what we require in Saskatchewan is'a more"balanced produc
tion and while agriculture must rcr
main'our basic industry wc must
build: up industries that are naturally
related to the farm such as the packing industry, creamery industry, milling industry, so that our boys and
girls can go to nearby centres to 'find
the outlet ior their energies and activities'."
In closing, Dr. Swanson said that
he returned to Canada' with" the realization that -the common people ''arc
turning from war witli an eagerness
to .work out their economic life. The
Motherland \vas going to re-establish
her economic and social life and the
masses would in "the future enjoy
standards of living never enjoyed before. "To us in western Canada that
means new purchasing power ancl better markets. We must rely on that
market for many years to come. Thc
U.S.A."with a shortage of cattle at
the present time, is going to be a
permanent market for us. Zt cannot
get- along without our feeders and
stockers and cannot maintain its
standard of living without the cattle
produced on our western plains. I feel
encouraged after my survey of the situation, because I believe if we can
work intelligently and learn co-operation and develop a sound system of
marketing, our agriculture will be reestablished and wc can look forward
to the future with courage and ITopc."

"Putting thc world in the position

goal of science," Dr. Louis ijfaugerauif
Bishop, of Fordliam University, declared in predicting a life cycle of

"INcan't l:e���done," replied in effect,

delicious fruits and beautiful ilowers
cannot be" apiJliecl to the mulM-ccllcd

"Why do it if wo could?" asked Dr.
C. C. Little, president of the- University of Michigan, arid president of'the
conference. Iiis thesis was that fostering longevity would merely increase the burden of first rate men of
taking care of the less favored. Degeneracy would be increased aa man
passed his defects along to future
generations- ���  -
-But Dr. Eugene Lyman Fisk, of the
Life Extension Institute,- showed that'

"There is no known limit to what

Provincial Legislature Opens
Victoria.���Marked by unusual splendor and colorful ceremonials, His
Honor R. Randolph Bruce, on Tuesday ' afternoon opened the fourth session of the sixteenth legislature of
British Columbia. Never did a larger
or more distinguished gathering ot
citizens attend ���,the openiing of the
house. The court of appeal, which is
"'holding session in Victoria, attended in
a body, being accorded seats to the
right of Mr. Speaker Buckham. Amid
the- blare of trumpets and the distant
crashing of guns fired in royal salute,
his honor, escorted by a guard of honor
from the naval establishment, Seaforth
Highlanders and other ��� military units
in full dress, appeared exactly at,, 3
o'clock to bo received by the members.
In his address touching reference
was made to the passing of Hon. John
Oliver. The outstanding matter of
future business was, however, contained in the reference to the recent inter-
provincial conference at Ottawa, which
was attended by1 Premier MacLean and
Attorney-General A. M. Manson.
"The conference," said his honor,
"was conducted with entire .harmony.
There is a reason to hope that the result will be an adjustment of the out-
��� standing differences between the Do-
"minion and the province that will be
of general material benefit."
This reference is regarded as indicating- a certainty that British Columbia may expect to have a Peace -River
block and possibly the railway belt
lands returned.
Premier J.-D. MacLean occupied his
,   seat as head of tlie government for the
first  time,  succeeding  the late Hon.
John Oliver.
