Law and Order, or ^naos?
History Will Repeat Itself
Tlie action ol' the British and Canadian Governments in breaking off
dipioiiiiifu. and trade relations with the Russian Soviet Government is tho
culmination of a long series of jion-dinlomalic actions on tho part of the
Soviet authorities, and openly expressed and active enmity to' British
inierusls in all parts of tho world. Professing friendship and enjoying
rights and privileges wherever tlie Union Jack Hies, Soviet emissaries
everywhere plotted and schemed to * undermine British influence, destroy
r-ritish interests, all with the avowed object of ultimately overthrowing
the i'.ritish form of government aud breaking- up the Uritish Fin pi re.
Wherever-in any part of tlie world unrest was found to exist, wherever
trouble loomed up, there the Soviet agents wero busy carrying on their
baneful propaganda, and always especially active if British interests wero
ln any wise concerned. The British' Government continued to exercise
patience and forbearance until these ceased to be a virtue. Ir sooth, the
Soviet regarded tho policy or conciliation followed by Groan Britain as a
sign of weakness. Thej treated it with contempt while taking full advantage
of It. ���  ���
Bnt it ls not the British Empire alone that, is involved in Soviet propaganda
and activities. Every natio'u .having a regard for the continuance of law,
order and good government, and interested in the maintenance of sound
c-couoiuic principles in all international relationships and trade, must view
with concern the attitude of Uie Russian Communist Government, ln a
word, all nations auust recognize Lhe fact that ihero are two major forces
contending for supremacy in the world today so hopelessly antagonist io to
each other that both cannot survive.
Ou flic one hand, there i.s the'communistic idea sponsored by thc Soviet,
a system which denies God, decries Lhe moral code recognized in all civilized
communities, ignores rights of properly, nourishes on strife, discord aud
unrest, has no regard for obligations solemnly entcril into' by it, and ever
seeks to promote its theories and activities through Lho medium of spies and
openly lawless characters.
On the-other hand there aro those people who reverence God aud
religion, who uphold the moral code, who believe in tho sanctity of mar-
riage, recognize property rights, observance of law and respect for
constituted authority and the honorable obligations of proniipcs and treaties,
who strive for peace and the orderly solution o'f social and economic prob-.
lems, rather 'than resort to revolutionary methods, spy systems, treachery,
threats, intimidation, even execution 'without trial.
Ono or the other of these codes for the government of mankind must
prevail; tliere can be no "compromise whore principles of conduct are so
absolutely opposed. ���-   ���
Tlie nations of tho world are coming Lo a realization of the situation and
to au acceptance of the struggle-involved. Unlike Great. Britain and somo
other countries, the United States never recogtmecl the .Russian Soviet
Government and has consistently refused to have any dealings wiih it. The
whole English-speaking world now takes the same posilion. France, too. 3s
alarmed, as is evidenced'by the --recent declarations made on behalf o'f the
French Government. And U.S. Ambassador Herri ck to France has declared
his belief that, "Lhe people of every country have goi to choose between
. order and anarchy, between honesty and Ihievery,-between every day virtue
and crime." "Either we believe iu orderly society or we don't'' he declared,
"if we do, wc ought fo use all lhe powei within us Lo defend and advance
Calling itself a Workers'- Government, Lhe Communists ot Russia have
sought to Ret control of organized labor throughout, the world, ln this they
failed in Great Britain, in flic United StaLes, in Canada, where thc hard
leaders havo foiled these insidious attempts. "Reds" everywhere seek to
create lhe impression that opposition to Holshovism Is opposition fo organized labor, but nothing was further from Lhe truth. Labor lias every tiling io
fear and lose from the spreading of the Russian doctrine, and nothing to
Elcrual vigilance is thc price of liberty, and as there can be no true
liberty under the Bolshevists, as even many of them have learued to their
sorrow, tho civilized nations must remain on guard lest Ihey fall in Lhe pit
which has engulfed the people of Rus.-ia.
Hudson Bay Railway is Only Another
' Aid to Canada's Progress
Those who talk of the Hudson

The Airship
A Daily Service Between Canada and
Britain is a Near Possibility
,At rt dinner in Toronto,- where the
hope for that city as the future air
centre of the dominion glowed" persistently and brightly, representatives
of thc c-lly and the province bade
farewell to Ma ioi1 U. II. Scotl and
Mr. A. R. Gibbs,' advisory air expert
to the British air minstry.
"To most people Lho idea of airship
transport is new," said-Major Seott.
"Airships are generally looked upon
ns a post-war development, when in
truth they are pre-war and were" actually set back during the war. Forty-
two thousand people were carried on
airships before the war without dam-,
age to a single person.
"The British government, realizing
the importance of better communication with tho dominions, looked into
the methods of reducing time of
transit, and came to tlio conclusion
that airships would bc thc best means
to this end."
Consequently, he declared, research
into. . design and construction had
been ordered, and as a result two
ships o'f 5,000,000 cubic feel capacity
had been laid down.

British Capital in Canada
(���English Finns Taking Great Interest
in Canadian Industries
Apropos" of-   tlio   lalk   constantly
heard about    United    Slates    economic comiues^ of Canada (much of it
absurdly exaggerated) it i.s interesting to note that recent figuresnshow
a substantial advance in British  enterprises in the Dominion.   Tlie Spillers' interests only recently made a
big investment iu Western    Canada,
and their new flour mill in Calgary is
to start producing in    a   couple   of
mouths.   The -English   firm   of   Cor-
laulds  pioneered 'the  Canadian  field
for the manufacture of artificial silks.
The Anglo-Canadian Pulp and Paper
Company, a combination   of   British
capital, and .Canadian   enterprise,  is
extending'its operations. The English
firm of Rowiuree has entered in im-
pi-essive manner into   the   Canadian
cocoji and chocolate field. 'And British capital is reporte'd to be--entering upon a large scale into tlie de
velopment of Northern'Manitoba aud
other Canadian mineral fields'.
Last 'but' not least is tho announcement that, an English syndicate is planning a groat industrial
development in lho( Lake St. John district, Quebec, The enterprise, it is
said, will include.' railway, pulp, paper
antUmineral possibilities, and will
involve an enormous amount of capital.

Thc Centenary of Matches
Just a Hundred Years Ago When the
First Match Was Utilized
The first recorded sale of a "friction light" toolo place   on    April   7,
1S27; so'this may be regarded as the
centenary of the   hourohoid   match.
There are  low commodities, if any,
that can claim moro useful or indispensable service   than   the   common
match, yet its invention was as. unpretentious-as its utility is apparent
at the present time. John Walker, of
Stockton-on-Tees, "can    be    regarded
as the inventor;  for it was he wlio
conceived Ihe idea of placing small
quantities of powder'on the heads of
.matches with a view    to   employing
friction. .
But the difficulties and dangers of
the   "friction   lights"  and   "luclfers"
have leceded into the dim past   No
longer do we buy matches at eight
a penny, nor.do we spend an undue
amount of time in fruitless effort's to
ignite a recalcitrant Inciter. Happily,
too, thc ever-present danger of sudden and' unexpected combustion has
disappeared, and left life  somewhat
safer, if   quieter.   But   tho   use   of
matches has grown to'-treniendous dimensions of late. The increase in the
consumption of tobacco is to a great
exLent the cause of "this. Electricity,
both as  used for coo]ung,.and heal-
.ing, and for 'illumination, is making
rapid, strides.   Thus the-future, utility
of the common match would appear
to depend on the lobaccolic capacity
o'f the   community.���London   Correspondent in Free Press.

four months.
The choice of a site, said Major
Scolt necessitated looking to the future. "If the airship is going to be
