angel descended to roll the stone
away from the "tomb. This work of
the angel was not to allow. Jesus to
escape but to show; that thc tomb
was empty. Christ needed not the
help of a glorious angel, for he was

over the devil, and the tcrror of the
keepers is a sample of what all- of
Christ's enemies shall one day experience -when he comes in glory to
reign as king.

Y.M.C.A. Notes
Looking* for Relief
U.S. Troops Want.to Leave Archangel
Archangel.��� In view of the situation which has developed among thc
United States troops in Archangel, official circles are impressed with/ the
necessity of promptly relieving the
United States soldiers who are now
in north Russia. The soldiers have
interpreted thc Washington statement that thcy Would be relieved at
they.'earliest-' moment possible as
meaning hot later than June 1, which
is the time thcy believe navigation at
Archangel will probably, bc open.;
A company of United States troops
recently showed sonic hesitation in
returning to., lhc' fighting fronts south
of Archangel, declaring that the war
���with Germany was over, and that
thc-United Stales was not at war
with the Bolshcviki. The regimental
commander in a speech said thcy
were fighting a desperate defensive
battle, and appealed to thcm to stick
it out. Thc company then left for
thc front.
This incident was only the outcome of what seems to be the general feeling among tltc United States
troops, oflicers as well as men. Because of this feeling it is admitted
more or less generally that the troops
now here "probably will be of little
usc aftcr Tunc 1.

and that a deputation of ministers
would visit England, in response to
an invitation already twice gir.en by
the, Britisii government.
Replying to Mr. Wedgwood"B.enn,
Mr. HannBworth stated thafhe understood that General -Allenby's proclamation included permission to com*

The County Association Has Proved
Its Value and Been Tremendous Success
Thc first county Y.M.C.A. to bc established in  thc  far west  started ou
its way aL Nanaimo, B.C.,    early    in
March with Mr. G. W. Hartley,    an
experienced     Y.M.C.A. ������ officer,    in
charge as   general    secretary.      The
county association includes the towns
of   Nanaimo,     Alberni,     Coiirtcnay,
Cumberland, Chemaimis, and    Ladysmith  and   thc  country    surrounding
Thc aim of the county association
is to co-operate with churches,
schools and other community organizations in directing the athletics, social and, lo a certain extent, thc religious activities of the whole community. It is a Y.M.C.A. without
any building or equipment. The'
schools, churches, public halls and
other public meeting places arc used
and in summer, nature's great outdoors to carry on its activities. The
Y.M.C.A., through its trained officers,
aims at giving leadership to thc community activities already existing or
which may be created.--It is not in
any way a rival of any existing institutions, but is merely an organization
to complement and co-ordinate, affording a common ground for people of all creeds, races, spheres of labor and social standing.
Asked for a slatcm-cnl of the program of the town and country work
department of lhc Y.M.C.A'. under
which thc county associations arc
> formed, Mr. C. D. Thorntipn of Vancouver, B.C., thc territorial sccrctary
of this department for Alberta and

Dear Colonel,
Ife was a great idea of
Jeus to call fehe last meeting of the
gods within view of the "Statute
of Liberty" in New York harbour.
Ife was fitting, because the subject
for debate was the present idea of
Liberty in fehe New World.
Statesmen and philosophers from
Athens and Rome were present,
Epicurians and Stoics, Cynics and
Sophisis. Apollo took the chair
ancl called on Pericles for a report
on the political and ethical status
of the U.S. A.
" 'In my Athenian days' said
Pericles, the motto was���peri
pantos teon eleutherian���Liberty
above everything. By Liberty we
meant political liberty. But having made a study of Americanism,
I begin to think liberty may be
purchased afe two dear a price."
'At fehe price of personal liberty',
suggested Socrates.
'Just so,' said Pericles. In this
once free and happy country, lib
erty has been pared1 down to van
ishing point;. Aud the reason is
not hard feo discover. In every
society there are strong-minded
people, Cranks and Faddists, who
strive to improve their fads and
oddities on other people. In my
own city of Athens, such people
formed cults of extreme and un
natural and un-Greek ideas and
superstitions. The leaders were
masculine women and feminine
men. They had fanatical ideas on
food and drink and raiment; they
founded new religions. Bufe if any
of them had proposed to impose
their ideas on the whole State, they
would have been sternly suppressd.'
But this strange country where
we now stand is governed by its
Orphic societies (as we calted
them.) The Cranks and Faddits
rule the nation. After July 1 ife
will be a crime to drink a glass of
beer, and the vintages of California will go out of business.
At this sfeage, Bacchus, who had
been a keen lisfener, was seen to
swoon, and was only revived by
the arrival of some nymphs bearing
flagons "of nectar.'. ~ '���".-.
.. Then a man arose,- whose flowing
cloak and noble, brow betokened
the philosopher. It was Aristotle,
who spoke to-this effect. "There
was a tendency in human nature to
go to extremes���to devote exelus1
ive' worship to the god of Light and
Reason and Liberty. That was
the' present tendency of the Angelo
Saxon race, of the American nation
���to,live by Logic aud frown upon
Enthusiasm.'. *���
But there was another God who
demanded attention; and he was
a jealous God. (Here he pointed
to Bacchus)- Bacchus is the god
of Un-reason of Enthusiasm, the
god of our passions^ who enthrones
himself in this unwieldy heart of
man that,holds such possibilities of
good and.evil. Woe be...to. the nation ;ithat grudges fehe - honor due;to
Bacchusr rlt .wasy'to " the; :god of
Unreason ;thafe Shakespeare created
his great ..characters; -Who can
fathom the depths of,, Hamlet?
Who .can- probe the sorrows of
King Lear?,,; Who can, sneer at the
follies and humors of FalstaS?. "���-"-.'
: Alas this/great nation has dishonored. Bacchus, -and..'put. Shake-
peare Qii' the .shelf.. The colds
logic of fehe .cults has ousted the
full-blooded' faith of Christian
Europe; There is no hope for this
nation unless fehey get back, to my
doctrine" of the. 'golden mean'.
Reason musfe hot be worshipped to
the exclusion of Unreason. Liberty
itself will become a nightmare, unless allowance ia made for the passions and enthusiasms that give a
glow to human life and make it
worth living. In other words,
America must get' rid of.her
cranks, or her fate is sealed.
While he was yefe speaking a
bevy of beautiful maidens from
Argos and Thebes were joined by
fairies with : silver wings, " and
satyrs in goats skins, and they

QjAYS an Eastern writer: "The Province of British
*���* Columbia is the wonderland of Canada." It is a country in
itself, almost a nation. Extending from the western plains of
Canada to the Pacific Ocean, and from the International Boundary to the 60th Northern" Parallel of Latitude, it has an area, of
355,855 square miles. It has thirty/seven more square miles than
the combined area of the coast States of California, Washington
"and Oregon. It is larger than the total acreagey. of the United
Kingdom, France, Belgium and Holland. If. the Yukon ^Territory is included it has an area of 562,931 square miles, equal to
the combined areas of the United Kingdom, Holland, Belgium,
Switzerland, Germany, Denmark and Sweden. \ These latter
countries have a total population of over 135,0^0,000 people.
.British Columbia has a scant 400,000. So there is a future in
this province.
Geographically Situation Favorable
Watson Griffin, in a valuable work .recently published on
Canada for the. Dominion Government, says that the geographical
situation of British Columbia is most favorable for all trade with
the countries of the Pacific and Indian oceans. "A British manufacturing establishment with large trade in the. East'by"establishing a branch at Vancouver could save over 6800 miles of carriage
in shipping goods to Japan or Siberia, over 50.00 miles in shipping
to Shanghai, 4000 miles in shipping to HongrKong, 4900.miles in
shipping to New Zealand, over 4600 miles in shipping to Sydney,
Australia, and nearly a thousand miles to Singapore," he states.
Millions of Acres of Arable Land
There are in British Columbia millions of acres of arable laud.
The pasturage area is immense.. British. Columbia undoubtedly
has the largests forests of first-class timber on the North-American continent.; Almost every knowii.mineral.has been discovered.
Millions of dollars'value in gold has been/washed or. quarried
��� from the rivers and sands and mountains* ~ There are wonderful
deposits of silver, copper, lead. Coal.of high quality is 'widely,
distributed on mainland and'islands, and important .deposits.of
iron ore has been"discovered. The wealth, of the British Columbia
fisheries cannot be estimated. :     ���;_    .:
Real Future Manufacturing
In touching on tbese^well-khown facts regarding this Province
. Mr. Griffin admits their existence and their importance but contends that the real future of the province is manufacturing.
:"The farms, the.forests, the mines and'fisheries of British Go-.
. kmbia'-will .'give employ merit^ to a  large population, "y he states,
" "but; one of; the^mbst important "industries:. of."". the future .will be
; manufacturing, x. With numerous;water:pqwers,. great1, supplies of
coal^all metallic minerals,, and immense forests .of finest timber, ho .
country is better-suited for, iron-making arid wood-working industries, (while the climate - is:/especially adapted ;tq the manufacture
of textiles. .7 It is-well known that a moist climate,; is most: favor-;,

Ocean vessels in' the: harbor, of Vancouver, are 28.95,2.miles .by

Montreal, and 3376.8 miles faom. the harbor of St Johns, the
Atlantic port during the winter months when navigation orithe
St, Lawrence is closed. The distance from Nkw York to Van-V
couver is just 48 miles longer than from New^ York to San Fran.;
cisco by the shortest route, and the eleyations and grades on the
Canadian route compare favorably ^with those on the American
routes* The traveller bound for Asia is 286 miles nearer to Yok.
ohama, 265 miles nearer Vladivostock; and 409 miles nearer to
Hong Kong when he reaches Vancouver than he would be at Sail
Francisco. The port of Prince Rupert, the termiuus of the
G.T.P., is 500 miles north of Vancouver, is in a latitude somewhat south of that of Belfast, Ireland, and is. even nearer Asiatic
ports than Vancouver is, though somewhat further by rail from
the great interior centres of the Dominion.
