Votes  And Their   V alue
Analysis of tlio vote cast In Uie last Dominion general election'discloses Uie same anomalies aiul contradictions revealed in elections generally for many years, and which, while causing much dissatisfaction ancl open
criticism have, as yet, failed to result An steps being taken to remedy an admittedly weak-condition in our present form of democratic government and
.   in the election of representatives in Parliament.   Various schemes have been
suggested   as   a - means   of - overcoming   this   weakness   but   none   have'
.proved wholly acceptable to a majority "of the people.
The situation complained of is that all votes have not equal value; that,
:is a matter of actual  fact, the vote  of one  man, or woman, is in many
instances just as effective in electing a representative as the votes of two
otlier men and women;  that Canada today does not enjoy representation
based on population; that tlie majority does not rule.
'*   In support of these contentions  it- is pointed  cut that  in the recent
��� election the Conservatives polled 1,476,747 votes and elected 91 members
to (lio House of. Commons, while Liberals and Liberal-Progressives combined
polled 1,151,933, o* 21,0:11 votes less, but elected lb members. .In
���othel-* words, Liberal and Liberal-Progressive votes had greater power than
���Conservative'votes.   Why? '*:������.'
'���'**'.���: The reason ..is found in the fact" that Conservative strength lies
chiefly in the large manufacturing cities and centres of population like
Toronto, Hamilton, London, Halifax, Vancouver, Montreal^uid Winnipeg. I?i
these cities Conservatives are usually-elected, by huge majorities. On the
other hand, in smaller urban and rural ridings the candidates of other parties
have a fighting chance and aro frequently elected but by much
���smaller majorities.
Furthermore, it has always been an accepted principle that the unit of
population entitled to elect a member should be larger for cities than for rural districts. All political parties-have agreed as to this, it being recognized
(hat a City Member can-keep more closely in touch with his constituents than
than can a- me-ruber representing a rural riding, and that residents in a city
���constituency luue means of making their views ancl desires known, and of
enforcing their opinions, which is not possible iu a rural constituency with a
scattered population. There is so much force iu tills that no party has ever
seriously challenged the fairness of requiring a larger population in city
The existing plan ot single member constituencies with larger populations
in cjty ridings works to  the advantage of the Conservative^ in the cities
where Liberals and Labor aro denied the representation to which their numbers entitle them, but, on the other hand, it works to the advantage of,,Lib-
���erals and other groups in thtj-rur.il ridings. ��   .
. " To right the grievances in both sets of constituencies the advocates of
Proportional Ileprosentalioii urge I.he abolition of the single member constituencies and the creation of larger constituencies" electing four or
live members each and the use of the single transferable ballot whereby,:every
considerable group uf public opinion would be'able to. obtain representation'
iu exact proportion to its voting strength. 7 W
Objection is taken to this plan on tiie ground that it would result in too
s'many groups in Pari lament and tho consequent inability of any duo party or
group to form a strong go,'ernment. -The force of this objection is, however.
weakened by the fact that the present system has in no  wise prevented such
������ groups, antl the dead lock which existud in the last two Parliaments was
.brought about, not under Proportional "Representation,: but-uud��r..the existing
system. Even in the'newly elected Parliament there are no less than seven
distinct groups as follows": Liberals. 119 members;;-..Conservatives, 91;-
Progresslves, 6; Liberal-Progressives, 13; United Farmers of Alberta, 11;
Labor, '&. and Independents.2.    " " "    ;}-.,_. ,
Another objection, and a much stronger one, is that while Proportional
Representation might bfj workable In centres of population, it is hardly
applicable, to settled rural Canada where constituencies to elect four or live
mombiTs would liave to be unduly large.        . .".,'';~-y

for all constituencies, urban and rural, the same. This would assist to remove the Conservative grievance in rural ridings, but wouf*1 continue all the
handicaps under which' Liberals. Labor and others now suffer in the large city
constituencies. Further, unless the membership of the House of Commons
was largely Increased it would moan greatly reducing the'representation of
all rural and tlu- smaller urban centres while adding enormously to the
large cities and manufacturing centres, thus practically giving, the Conservative party a permanent position of povrer.
During the hist century 'giant, forward strides have been made in0tho
extension of the franchise aud iu simplifying and improving methods of. elections, but with It all wo have rigidly adhered to an obsolete constituency
method of dividing the country aiul which is responsible for the well founded
complaints now heard. There Is room for reform in this vitally important
matter in order that real democracy may prevail.

Australiart* Says Perfected Machine

The machine consists of a pair of

Have Not Solved Mystery
Doctoi'3 Unable As Yet To Find
Definite Cure For Cancer
The assembly of medical men from
many countries who, in America, have
been exchanging knowledge, experiences,- and ideas with regard to thc
study of cancer, is to leave us, apparently,^ without any compielo understanding of the disease, and Iherefore
without any definite cure for it. In au
agreed statement���the first, probably,
to which a hundred doctors havo over
subscribed���tho congress has assured
us definitely that cancer is not'hereditary, neither is it Infectious nor contagious. So Tar as its treatment Js
concerned we arc told only what wo
'knew already���that radiology and surgery alone can deal with it, and (hat
only If it is taken at an early stage-
but tho fact that our ignorance Is being brought within narrower limits Is
in'Itself hopeful. It narrows., the field
of research, and thereby It brings us
nearer to definite knowledge.

Trouble Must Be Treated
Through the Blood
. The most a rheumatic sufferer can
hope for in rubbing something on'the
swollen, aching joints is a little relief
and all the while the trouble is becoming more firmly rooted. It'is now
known that rheumatism is rooted in
the blood, and that as tho trouble goes
on the blood becomes still further thin
and watery. To' get rid of rheumatism,
therefore, you must, go.to tho root of
the trouble, in the blood." .That is'why
"Dr. Williams' Pink Pills; liave proved
so beneficial when taken Cor this trouble-.  They make new, rich blood which
expels the poisonous acid and the rheumatism disappears.   There are thousands of former rheumatic sufferers ln
Canada, now   well, antl   strong,   who'
thank Dr. Williams'' Pink Pills that
they are now free from the aches and
pains of this dreaded troublo'.One of
these is Mr. Robt. A. Smith, Mersey
Point, N.S., who says:���"Some years
which grew-s'o bad tliat I could not
walk ami had to go to bed under the
doctor's care.   It is needless to say
that I underwent a great deal of suffering.    The. doctor's medicine did not
seem to reach the trouble, so when I
was advised to try Dr. Williams.' Pink
Pills I did so, and after taking' them
for some weeks [ was able to get out
of bed.    I continued using tire pills
:and was soon able to work, and I have
not been troubled   with   rheumatism
since.    In  other respects also I  derived a great deal of.beneiit from these
pills and I   think   them   a   wonderful

Process   Perfected   That   Makes   All

The time is - uot far away when
blood suitable for use in transfusions
can be obtained ln bottles at a drug

predicted at the convention of the
Interstate Post Graduate Medical Assembly in Cleveland.
. Often when a minute's time balances
the life oC a patient needing a blood
transfusion a "donor" with right, kind

will render-suitable even the blood of
oxen and sheep, which, if'transfused
in natural state, would bring almost
instant death,
It was deemed practicable that this
process will make it possible to buy at
a drug store'blood bottled up without

Many a 'good cook has vastly Improved
her recipes by using Eagle Brand Condensed Milk for this very reason., Thc
milk and sugar aro -thoroughly combined (almost pre-cooked, you might
say) so that results aro obtainable that
could not be expected if you mixed the
sugar and milk yourself. Having the
milk and sugar already blended 13 a
great advantage. Asido from saving
sugar���and tho trouble of mixing���
there Is the. certainty of a liner flavor
to the dish. The condensed milk combines, quickly and easily with all other
ingredients���binds them closer together���and gives the recipe a smoother
texture. Another advantage of condensed milk is its convenience. One
can keep several cans on hand as It
keeps perfectly, so thero is,,no such'
thing as running short, but rather a
certainty of pure, fresh milk whenever it is required.

Symmetry Destroyed By Greater 'Use
.    Of  Right  Eye
Modern faces aro too lopsided to
meet the beauty requirements of the
old masters, says II. L. Taylor, chair-
���man of the British National^Council for
lhc Preservation of Eyesight.
Men, and especially intellectual
men, aro much more likely, in his
opinion, to have the right side of. the
face more developed than the left side.
This is due to using the right eye excessively, with the result ill at it eventually moves away from the nose further than the left eye.
Modern women also suffer from this
defect, Mr. Taylor��� declares. He says
it is rarely I liar one finds women with
lhe symmetrical, oval faces painted by

The Carmi Road
Construction "of a road from
McCulloch near Kelowna, to
Carmi, in the Boundary district,
will be urged on the . government
by the Automobile Club of British Columbia, according to announcement made by R. E.
Berry, chairman of the highway
committee. The residents of
Carmi, Beaverdell and other
places in this district, and the
Kelowna board of Trade_ have
been,urging the construction of
this road for some time, and the
support of the Automobile Club
has been enlisted. Building of
this road would eliminate the
necessity of North Okanagan
motorists'of ferrying to Summer-
land when proceeding to Spokane
and would cut off a day from the
journey from Kelowna, to that,
city. It would also provide quicker and'better communication with
the Boundary and Kootenay districts.*  ��� ; '.*;*:;;":;*       7 ������*.*;
