experience when his cabin burned
down.   The cabin was known as
Gormin Castle,  situated on Cork
avenue, a few miles from. West-
bridge.   The fire broke oat in the
ceiling about six o'clock one fine
morning, while Sam was saying his
prayers.     With   an  energy  and
desperation that Sam has carried
with him since the days of  the
Fenian ^aid ho fought the blaze
for three long hours,  burning his
neck and hands.    At   last,  dripping with water and perspiration
he retired from action after snaking his belongings out of the burning building.    His loss amounted
to one bowl,  a pair of forks and
knives, and a love letter .that he
had just received from his intended
bride.   Sam feels the loss of this
letter very keenly.    He kept it on
a table by his bedside so that he
could read it every time that he
had a spare   moment.   In future
Sam should carry hia love-letters
in his inside" pocket.

of Berlin and later spent many years

How Best to Overcome the Troubles
That Afflict Women Only
The most fateful years in a woman's life are those between forty-five
and fifty. Many women enter this
term under depressing conditions
through overwork, worry or a neglected condition of the blood, and so
thcy suffer heavily. Still, variations
of health at this time can be relieved
by home treatment.
Among thc commonest symptoms
arc headaches and pains in thc back
and sides, fever-flushes, palpitation,
dizziness and depression. Women
stand in need of rich, red blood all
their lifc, but never more so than in
middle age, when the nerves are. also
weak and over-wrought. Now every
woman can prove the prompt help
afforded to her- health by renewing
her blood supply. It is a test that
any ailing woman can make by taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, for
these pills make, rich, red blood, which
in turn helps the appetite, strengthens the nerves and restores robust
health. Thousands of women have
found in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills the
means by which new health and a
brighter outlook of life, were gained.
In proof of this is the voluntary testimony of -Mrs. J-l. S. Peterson! Mil-
ford, Om., who says: "I have suffered great ly from those troubles that
alllict my scn, aud I have found lhat
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills in such cases
not only .Jo all that is claimed for

When a miner's pick struck into the
pocket of clay out rolled thc toad.

that of a young alligator, it has no

Remarkable   Advance   Made   in   the
Industry in British
The remarkable advance made in
thc goat raising industry in British
Columbia during thc past few ycars
was demonstrated at the annual exhibition of the B.C. Goat Breeders'
Association, held in Victoria early
this month. Seventy entries were
paraded around thc show ring, Saa-
nens being in the majority, while Tog-
genburgs wcrc also very well represented.
In tbe opinion of Dr, Knight, who
acted as judge, tltc standard of billies
and nannies at the exhibition far surpassed anything ever brought together in Western Canada. It was
only after considerable hesitation thaT
lie picked thc winners in a number of
classes, merit on points being practically even between the contestants. Dr.
Knight officiated in the stead of Dr.
Kansom, of Vancouver, who was unable to attend because thc strike had
tietl up all shipping between the main-
kind and the capital.
A few years ago the goat class at
the British Columbia exhibitions could
not be considered a serious attraction.
Indeed, it was all'but classified as a
joke, aud the few specimens shown
were by no means representative of
the better class of animals. But there
has been great improvement, and the

While not proposing in this article
to even attempt to define the causes-
or contributing agencies to the excessive profiteering which has been
and is still rampant in Canada, and
also while not attempting to assume
responsibility for suggesting the nature of thc remedy that should be applied, it can be said without any hesitation or qualification whatever that
the Government at Ottawa must act,
act quickly,-act even drastically, ro
put a stop to the extortionate .profit-,
eering in the necessaries of lifc which
has become not only a national scandal, but is so outraging the feelings
of the people that a situation is developing which ' constitutes a serious
menace to the future stability of thc
Thc cost of living has now reached
a height where even men of moderate
incomes are beginning to worry how
to make ends meet, while the man on
small salary and the workmanMcpcnd-
ing on his daily or weekly wage is
becoming almost desperate in his
struggle to feed, clothe and keep a
roof over the heads of himself, wife
and children.
There can bc no question, of course,
that it was not possible for the civilized nations of thc world lo turn
their activities and energies for four
and a half ycars, from the work of
peaceful production and trade, into
thc terrible business' of war and
wholesale, destruction of lifc and property without such loss in production,
and destruction of existing wealth and
properly, having the effect of increasing the cost of all articles that wcrc
made and produced. Under the circumstances, an increase was natural
and inevitable, and, if tlicrc wcrc no
other artificial .contributing causes,
the people would grin and bear it as
one of the prices of victory and thc
securing of the future liberty and
peace of thc world.
Unfortunately, however, selfish interests, lacking thc first elements of
patriotism in their make-up,' took advantage of the world upheaval and.the
necessities of tlicir country and.. all
mankind engaged in a life and death
struggle for their-very"independence-
and existence^ to control and manipulate tlie lifc iieccssitics of thc masses
of the people in such a manner as to
^ pile up enormous profits and wealth
for themselves. These men and corporations took full advantage of the
abnormal conditions existing to accumulate abnormal profits for themselves, utterly callous of the effect on
their fellow citizens and country.
These soulless individuals, and corporations dicUthis at, a timc when all
the energies and thought of thc Government -were centered on thc tremendous, task thrust upon it of prosecuting thc war to a victorious-end, and
when it was, therefore, no easy matter to" keep a close .check upon their
' The war. is now- over and won, ending in', a triumphant victory for democracy, civilization, and human rights
and liberty. It is;'therefore, nowthc

subject of future, policy, the Admiral
declared���his   unalterable   conviction.
that the British Empire depended entirely on  the sea. - . '

Haig,    from the - "soldiers', viewpoint,
urged  that peace "could only" bc preserved    hi' adequate - preparation for

oice  of  Silhouettes  for  the  Summer
a n c e
AT TtIK ;r*sent moment there is
:i delightful ilispute goins on
about the dance frock. One
school oi artists is upholding tlie
straight anc7 narrow and the other
school i.s contending for the bouffant,
which, says the latter oult of dress
artists, is tho appropriate thing for
dance, wear. Besides, nearly all Pari*
is ���wearing: its dunce skirts .short and
wide. So. if you prefer having- yours
that way, certainly you do it on excellent authority.
<t> * 'I' '!>
But to set down to these confection*
for t!i--j .summer hop. they are for the
most part delineated on rather close
lines. And that fetching- closeness may
he the very t-Rnvr matter of simulation.
Quite a hit will depend on the stuff you
make ihe froek of. hi lhat ease. tho.
J.'ul jusi hy way of illustration, what
more charniuig material to build tlie
lirst model of than net? There you
hare opportunity to make, ihe skirt
comfortably wideband at the same lim*
to preserve the effect of the pencil
silhouette. A jade silk net atop of an
apricot chiffon would be a luscious color
scheme, don't you think? As for the
actual cut tint?, there is precious little
that you need he told about that. The
skirt, you see. is the simple straight,
gathered type, and the bodice slightly
mora ditllcult of line than a camisole.
There are no sleeves to bother about
mini very little neck. Trimming, then,
is the easy hut effective matter of a
crushed girdle, preferably of the apricot
chiffor., and after that a garland ot
satin roses of lhe pink and tea varieties.
���t> <|> * .(.
1 There are fascinating; printed georgettes in the dross material market thin
season, and many that show delightful
possibilities for morn or less formal
summer wear. What do you think .about
fashioning thi* unsleevod model with
the gracefully draped supplement on Its
skirt, of a rose and white print and
doing' the draping1 'business in rose
taffeta'.' Again there Is scarcely any
cutting problem to solve, since th��
bodice follows almost straight piece
simplicity back and front. The neck is
curved .inst a wee hit away from lhe
straight-across line, and the armhole is
nothing if not a side that forgot to be
seamsd. Now, that skirt addition you
may experience a little trouble with, if
you don't know, in the first place, that
the plan of it is nothing more nor less
than a narrow length of material tho
ends of which are tacked at each side
of the bodice and the rest of whieh
follows its own natural graceful way.

Do you know, If one Is Ingenious, besides belli* able with the needle, thare
are wonderfully f��tcliiug things ta be
done with a sash? Verily, a clever
girdle can be the voi-y making' of a.
dress. You might take seriously that
delightful thing: with the double-bqw
business distinguishing it Instantly from
all other froohs of ita class. Minus its
sash the dress Is but the simplest ot ,.
shart-sleevod, straight-skirted models.
Plus Its sash, It keeps one. guessing: as
to the secret of lu indefinable charm.
The' girdle, mark you. doesn't bo the
usual way of a girdle. Ther* I* real
cut to it. More, explicitly, it Is a wee
"veflt". that- extends to gash proportions at each side. The same" tUln��
occurs in back,- and the'-meeting: ot the
four sash ends results in the twin bow-
-ing- :       ' "' .
Fancy   this   In   a   citron-colored. sillc
yolle. will you, or a filet lace and sashed
with   a   two-lone   satin.     Against   the
citron ydu-might put with really charm-.
Ing'results some gold brocade.
When the bloomer or Zouave or Turkish line, whichever you feel like calling-
it, introduced itself, it was regarded as
-something interesting1 but rather radical, '*
and only the daring took It up. Now,
bcliold.lt featured on the most innocent of dresses, and always -with Ineffable grace and charm. This last
-model, so smartly devoid of obvious
trimming, expressed in satin would b��V*
.the very most distinctive little tube
that ever happened on a dance floor.
In the matter of cut it can't bo strictly
tube and bloomered at the same time.
But done in soft satin, and made no
wider than is necessary to include some
bit of gathering at the bottom, It may
be depended upon to- effect the straight-'
up-and-down-line in a uniquely "attractive -way. Tea rose is a. shade much
liked now. You might, try that, with
maybe some silver ribbon.

Influence Of
The Merchant
QnTTawn Life
"Co-operation of Farmer and Trader
Highly DesirabTe7
The influence  which/the merchant
can  wield  in   community  life  is  admirably discussed by E7B. Moon,''the
noted writer on commercial and community life, in the "Orange Jttdd Farmer," as .follows: ���'������;���'.
- Farmers   arc vitally "interested in
towns.   Proximity to a "live" town is'
worth dollars per acre.      A "dead"
town-means a poor community���unattractive  to  prospective farm  "owners.    ''���',,- ..7'   "','��.  -"   ~
���The building up of a town requires'
faith1 in' its^future, the co-operation.of
men and women, and lhc uniting of
all elements in lhc-.community to one
common purpose-
Little thought is given to this question,   of co-operation, and    toov little
thought is given in the social side in
town uplift-
To-be sure, many towns have .good
buildings, banks, elevators, and good
stores.   These are all essentials���but
life success of the town in these instances is almost wholly commercial.
These interests become individual���
selfish.       The  big purpose  and  thc
strong spirit of co-operation are lost.
The contest for business often results in bitter strife.   Merchants have
nothing to., do with each other in a
business   social . way, the   community
Is split   up    into    sides;    cliques arc
������formed,  and  the  result is a  divided
Farm Tractors In
Southern Italy
Making Apulia Over Into Veritable
Canadian Wheat Garden
Farm tractors, jolting over the
plains of. Apulia, in southcrriN Italy,
have awakened the inhabitants of that
district tis unceremoniously as the.
elephants oi Pyrrhus-awakened them
22 centuries ago. And- the tractors
signalize an . invasion, which is not
likely to be any.1 such .-"temporary matter as Avas the visit of "the' King of
Epiriis and his army, These, machines
are .making Apulia over from;a frontier grazing region, devoted by ttn-
progrcssive landholders to the casual
raising of flocks, into what an Italian
writer describes as a veritable Canadian wheat garden. They are helping
to solve thc European food problem.
But more than that, thcy arc causing
a social regeneration, or, rather, thc
government is doing so, by urging the
landholders lo recognize thc modern
co-operative order of things and to do
tlicir share in rehabilitating, the world.
The government, by this program, is
clearly doing much the same thing
tliat the ancient Roman Republic, in
the proctorship of Lucius .Postuinius,
did, when it compelled the Apulian
shepherds to desist from robbery and
to pay homage to the law.

Canadian Steamship First
To Cross Atlantic
Royal William Was the First Vessel
Propelled by Steam to
Cross'.-   '���"-.'
A letter recently appeared in'7'.tlie
London Times from Prof. \V.7.Ef>
Vander Sinissen, of the University of
Toronto,.now'nfsidcnt in England, in
illicit he pointed out that it was neither the American-owned Savannah
nor the British steamship Sirius or
Great Western, but the Canadian-
owned and built Royal William which
was the first vessel propelled by steam
to cross the Atlantic.
;. From lime ��� to time disputes have
ariseu--:.on this question, and Prof-
Vandcr Smisscii recalls that in 1S94
the Earl of Aberdeen, as Governor-
General, at the time the inter-Colonial
..Conference was in Ottawa, unveiled a
tablet placed on the wall.of one of the
corridors of the Parliament Building;!
inscribed with the details of the Royal
William's performance. The burning
of the buildings early in the war. destroyed this lab.lct, .whicli it is hoped
will bc replaced. Prof. Vander Sjuis-
scn says that the Royal William- was
designedby Wx. .lames Goudic, a native of Quebec. Her' builders were
Messrs. Campbell and Black, of that
city; she was cngined in Montreal,
and before making her nfcmorable
trip'from Quebec, via Piclou, N.S., to
London in August, 1838, had traded
between Quebec, Halifax and Boston.
She was bought'by.' the Portugese
Government and re-named, and later
served as a Spanish warship under thc
name of Isabel Scguuda.' She had a
length of 176 feet, a width between the
paddle boxes of 28 feet, and a gross
tonnage of f,370. -
The'Royal William -was not a large
vessel, but.she made the record of ber

industrial congress, to be held August
11 lo 16, seems certain from the fact
that congress headquarters now' announces lhat Robert Dolla.', president of the Dollar Steamship company
of trans-Pacific commerce, will speak
to the congress on this subject.
Mr. Dollar is one of the best known
shipping men of the .Pacific, an optimist with great*faith in the future
possibilities of. Pacific development
generally, and possessing an extraordinarily warm feeling for the Do-
.minio.ii.. He has been quite active in
the interests of'the congress to date,

Salvaging Ships
Lost In War
Vessels  Sunk   By   Germans   During
War Contain Fortunes ih Gold
and Goods    "���
London.���There is a spice of adventure in the salvaging of steamers sunk
by German raiders..   Round the British Isles, in-.the Mediterranean, and off
thc Murman coast .are rich fields for
the salvage service as well as private
enterprise.   In the North Sea the water is too deep to make an3r considerable success, but  in shallower water
not only cargoes but ships arc being
Sonic!-of the sunken vessels contain
huge fortunes'in gold or goods. One
is known to have carried $5,000,000
in gold. The diver sent down to work
on her borrowed the key to the ship's
strong box, but it is not recorded
whether he retrieved the gold.
If the divers after "an investigation
decide to attempt to float the ship,
barges are moored over her at low J
tide. Nine-inch wire ropes are then
passed under it and fastened lo the
barges above. As the tide rises the
barges rise with it, bringing the ship
along as it lies in the great wire
cradle. The damaged ship is then
towed into shallow water and the necessary repairs made.
In the case pf vessels only partly
submerged, compressed air is sometimes pumped inTo her hold,, driving
out the water while the ship slowly
floats lo the surface- Occasionally it
is-necessary,, where the hole is not too
large, to make a great patch, float it
over the hole, and then fasten it sufficiently light in position until the
ship can be pumped out and floated.
One vessel was torpedoed in the
Channel, but almost reached the
shore before it went dtfwn. .^Whcn it
finally sank it was expbscd.at low tide
and not so very .far.-from a railroad-
Heavy locomotives pulled  the vessel
It is  considered,   that  Mr. Dollar's i���t0 a perpendicular position/and the
knowledge, of Pacific routes and' possibilities is second to none, and.while
his ���discussions.will bc general in nature they will no doubt bring forth
;some phases extremely valuable to
Canada,, and -particularly lo Western
Canada. Mr. Dollar is president of
the National Trades' Council of the
United Stales, and one of the most
active workers for American foreign

While these salvage operations have
been rcmuncralivaly successful, leaders in the industry declare 'that it is
next to impossible to save a ship h'ing
in water deeper than her masts, and
that very many ships will never be
brought to the surface. But thcy do
not despair as to-the cargo if the-ship
lies in less than 200 feet of water.
Divers can operate with comparative
ease at that depth. ;���'-',

Korean Atrocities
Not Exaggerated
Opinion Expressed  By Dr. William
Elliot Griffis
Washington, District of Columbia.
���That the stories of reported Japanese atrocities in Korea have not been
exaggerated, was the opinion expressed in an interview by Dr. William
Elliot Griffis, who organized the first
public schools on the west coast of
Japan in 1870, and who is in close
touch -with far eastern affairs, and es-
peciall3r thc movement to render
Korea independent of the government
of Tokio. Dr. Griffis took part in the
Korean rally held in Washington. His
statement was as follows:
"The stories of the outrages perpetrated by the Japanese in Korea have
I am sure been in no way exaggerated. As published in thc press, thcy
have for the most part emanated
from people who are known to me
personally, and they bear strong evidence of truth- In addition lo the
evidence published, I have received
overwhelming proof in piivate letters
from friends as well as in direct conversation with recent arrivals from
"Up to the time of Marquis Ito's
entrance in public life, Japan had been
for a score of years a student on
American methods. Ito, however, fell
in Jove with Prussian methods, and
from that time up to the present Japan has been a student and a close
imitator of Prussian methods.- If Japan had adhered to American ideals,
Korea's position today would be analogous to that of the Philippines, and
she would now bc on the road to complete independence.
"Korea has her own language and
culture, and her civilization is too fine
and too venerable to bc absoibcd or
superseded .by thc Japanese, who have
acquired some of thc methods of civilization without absorbing the underlying principles of Christianity. With
the lesson of Belgium before us, no
one can say that thc spoliation of a
w'cak nation by a strong one is not a
menace to the peace of the world."

Hull, England. ��� Fortunes from

of local plutocracy. They have town

Canada And Basic
Rules For Labor
Federal  Government  Favors dullest
Discussion of All Differences
Ottawa. ��� The Toronto Central
Strike Committee recently drew the
attention of the Prime Minister, Sir
Robert Borden, to the declarations of
the basic ideas relating .to labor as
enunciated by the peace terms. The
committee put this question to the
Premier: "Why is common labor forced to strike to obtain what we understand to be internalionallv recognized?"
Sir Robert in reply dispatched the
following message: "The position of
the government was fully explained
to thc delegation from Toronto as
well as in my observation in the
House of Commons. I madc it clear
that the federal government favor* a
full recognition of labor as well as
the fullest discussion of all differences
between employers and employed.
The hours of employment and the
conditions of labor have been the subject of provincial legislation in every
province in Canada with the possible
exception of Prince Edward Island.
Thc Dominion government recognizes
the principles embodied invthe peace
treaty in so far as they come within
the jurisdiction of the federal parlia.-?
ment, and is prepared to submit measures for the purpose of carrying
Ihent out."
The peace conference at Paris took
steps with respect to labor. I- thc
first place, it included in the peace
terms themselves a declaration of
rules which all industrial communities
should endeavor to apply so far as
their special circumstances would permit. That declaration opening with
the statement that "Labor should not
be regarded merely as a cjoinmodity
or article of commerce," affirmed the
right of association for all lawful pur- ���
poses by the employed as well as the
employers, and indorsed the eight-
hour day or 48-hour week, the weekly
rest day of at least 24 hours, the abolition of child labor and the view
that men and women should receive ���
equal remuneration for work of equal
value. Furthermore, thc peace conference provided machinery for the
holding of international labor conventions, to recommend legislation for the
welfare of the workers. The,iirst of
these conventions is to take place at
Washington, District of Columbia,
this year- It is the duty of thc governments of the respective countries
represented at these gatherings to
bring recommendations madc by the
delegates before the proper legislative
It is conceivable that in Canada the
Dominion government would be called
upon to submit certain recommendations of the labor convention to the
Dominion parliament. Inasmuch, however, as jurisdiction to legislate in
regard to property and civil rights
and contracts has bden confided to
the provincial legislatures by the
British North America Act, recommendations dealing with houis of'
labor would have to be referred to
the provincial legislatures. The argument that the power to deal with the
subject and hours and conditions of
labor re-sts with the provincial authorities is supported, as Sir Robert Borden notes in his message to the
Toronto Central Committee, by the
fact that in eight of the provinces,
that is, in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Sco-
lia, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, statutes on that very topic
have already _bee_u_enacted and are in_
An opportunity will probably be
given for a full dress debate on the
strike situation in Canada.

Canadian National railways alone
from August, 1914, until May 31 last,

the total number of troops moved in

The Unexplored
Parts Of Canada
Matter of Natural Resources Has Become of the Utmost
When the country has returned
from thc way of thc war to the path
of peace thc government may sec its
way clear to resume thc exploration
of unknown Canada. With thc heavy
burden of debt now resting on thc
nation, thc matter of its natural resources has become of thc utmost
importance. To these wc must look
for the means of meeting the national
obligation and of attracting population and capital. Exploration and
prospecting, too, should provide a
strong lure for many of thc returned
men who shared in the great adventure in Europe. Apart from thc pica-
cure of discovery, the quest is not
without more tangible rewards, besides affording one avenue of escape from thc difficulty of finding
employment for returned men who
havc no skilled trade at their fingers'
f.-nds, but possess both grit and intelligence.

Some   Winnipeg   Returned   Soldiers
Find Canada Not Democratic Enough
Winnipeg.���Plans for the organization of a soldiers' and sailors' Labor
league iu Winnipeg arc being drawn
up by a soldiers' committee here. This
was annaunccd by L. Keller, speaking before a gathering of seven or
eight hundred returned soldiers in thc
Norwood baseball grounds. It was
said that thc league would bc formed
on the lines of a similar one which
was started in Vancouver about three
weeks ago. It is to bc submitted
clause by clause, lo an open meeting
ol" returned soldiers and sailors ancl

the majority.
Other matters discussed by the
meeting were thc following resolution with regard to the recent
amendment to the Immigration Act
which was unanimously carried and
also details of the recent riot, particularly  of the death of Sokolowski.
"We, the returned soldiers and
sailors of Canada and liis Majesty's
forces, who fought for freedom and
liberty and are now residents in the
city of Winnipeg, do demand of our
government to deport us lo our mother country according to the latest
amendment to the Immigration Act,
as wc find that this country is not
governed in thc democratic spirit for
which we fought."
It was stated by those who presented thc resolution that they expect
to -secure 10,000 signatures before
forwarding it to thc authorities.
Killing- "Death Watch"
Method of Attacking Distinctive In-
' sects With Liquid Gas
Hundreds of returned Canadian
soldiers will have noticed during
their visits to the house of parliament
(writes a correspondent) thc huge
scaffolding which completely obscures
thc handsome oaken roof of Westminster Hall. Thcy will have wondered,
too, at thc reason for this unsightli-
ncss in one of Britain's "show places."
The reason is easy of explanation.
The scaffolding which has been there
for five years and is likely to remain
for another three, is due to the fact
that workmen have long been fighting
a campaign against an insect known
as thc wood-boring "death watch"
beetle. Battalions of these insidious
insects have for years been attacking
the wonderful oaken beams, but the
work of destruction was noticed in
the nick of time. Liquid gas attacks
by expert workmen wearing masks go
on day after day, ami their work i.s
supplemented by others who are shoring up and strengthening the massive

Astonishing and Almost Uninterrupted Success
Harry G. Hawker's career as a
pilot, covering nine years, has revealed an ability to draw a line between
sheer recklessness and prudent daring
which has been at once thc amazement and despair of his fellow flying
men. Perhaps the secret of it is that
what would bc recklessness in another has in his case simply been good
craftsmanship, because of his consummate skill and wonderful nerve
and physical vitality. His record as
an aviator is one of astonishing and
almost uninterrupted success.
Hawker was a lad in Australia, his
native land, when flying was in its
infancy in England. His natural
tastes turned him to motor-engines,
and his love of adventure carried
him to England in company with a
half-dozen other young Australians.
Two at least of his companions gained distinction in thc land of their
adoption. These wcrc Lieut.-Col.
Harry Burstcd and Major Eric Harrison, who became aviation officers.

Rural Credits Movement
Particulars of Working of the System
in Manitoba
Tlic rural credits movement in
Alanitoba is growing steadily both in
volume and usefulness. In 1917'there
was one society in the province,
which, during that year, issued loans
amounting to $16,000. Last ycar
loans 'totalling $215,581-wcrc issued
through ten societies, while, this year
$851,925 has been appropriated for
loans through thirty-six societies.
Fourteen other societies will soon bc
actively operating, and loans ih rough
these will soon bring the total for lhe
year past the million dollar mark.
It is of interest to note that the
largest amount of money borrowed
through these societies for any one
purpose is for thc breaking of new
land. This amounts- this year lo
$233,792, or nearly 25 per cent, of the
total. It is computed lhat litis sum
will provide for the. bringing under
cultivation of 30.0U0 acres of virgin
prairie. Most of this land is In northern Alanitoba, and the 'exports expect lhal in 1920 it may produce. 600,-
000 bushels of wheat. Al an average
price of $1.50 a bushel one crop from
tliis land would pay all the credits
which have been granted this year.
The sum of $137,300 is provided
for the buying of livestock, including
cal tic, horses, sheep and hogs, but
chiefly the first two named. Many
carloads of stockers and breeding
cattle havc been returned to thc
country froni the Winnipeg stockyards through thc instrumentality of

The Prairie Provinces produce a
not inconsiderable yield of fruit,
mostly small fruits, as shown in the
Canada Year Book for 1918, issued by
the Dominion Statistician. For the
three provinces, as slated, the number
of apple trees in bearing was 2,574;
of apple trees not in bearing 10,618.
Other orchard trees bearing numbered
7,210, and non-bearing 3,273. The
orchard acreage is 674, and that of

when thc Germans were sinking every

declared, wcrc absolutely responsible
for the present shortage in Great Britain and Germany. The Germans were
quite unconcerned during the submarine campaign about depriving British
women and children of food. Tlicy
were unconcerned about the babies
then, but ngw" they were crying like
big babies because the blockade was
still there.    (Cheers.)
J. Havelock .Wilson, Coalition Labor M.P. for South Shields, condemned "tlic triple alliance leaders for engaging iit ill-directed activities. He
.declared, that capitalists were ' afraid
to develop industry because of the absence of guarantees for the future. It
was thc stunts of Robert Williams &
Co. which created unemployment. He
condemned thc conscription cry. as
"flapdoodle." Thc only people concerned" about conscientious objectors,
hc said, were a handful of men of Bolshevik tendency, and characterized
Lcninc and Trotsky as two damned

A National Policy on the Subj ct ci'
It is rather fashionable lo argue
that, labor troubles iu lhc United
Stales will never assume gi\at proportions. People say that this is lhe
land of opportunity, many working-
men own their homes, Americans supported the war wholeheartedly, our
young men have had military training. All that and ten times more applies to Canada, her men havc been
lhc heroes of the war, her people
have given tinlil tlicy had no more to
give, they arc house-owners. In Canada men have found as promising a
future as anywhere else in the world.
If the United States is lo adopt a-national policy on the subject of labor,
she now has a chance to learn much

Right To Seize
Whiskey  Stills
May Be Extended to Officers Of Alberta Provincial Police
Edmonton, Alberta.���The right to
seize illicit whiskey stills, whicli is af
present vested only in oflicers of thc
federal inland revenue department,
may shortly bc extended to officers of
thc Alberta provincial police. The
Attorney-General recently look this
matter up with the federal authorities,
urging such course, ancl received a
careful hearing, which led him to believe that his suggestion would bc
acted upon. In view of thc increasing
���number of would-be distillers in different parts of the province, the question of dealing with thc situation has
become a live one. As it stands now
police officers arc required to report
all cases to. thc inland revenue department for their action.

from Russia.
