Odium, M.A., B.Sc)  I am very sorry that through the late civic elections my last letter was broken in two, and in t.  manner tbat rather spoiled the sequel, pr logical  connection.   However, I shall now pick up the -  threads and draw them closely towards the proper  trend of my subject. , *  In my last I showed that the hypothecated "ten  shoe factories of Canada," and the one hundred  of the United States, naturally and relentlessly  have come into competition not* only among "then*.**  selves, each in the two separate countries,, but also'  each in the country of the other.   And What is  true between the factories .of Canada and the, ,,  States is also true as between Canada and all other countries exporting boots and shoes.   Hence in  this we at once see a phase of competition that  both capitalists and workmen must'take into daily  account.   They need not try to pooh pooh this  matter.  It is one of the rock-bottom and most try-  j*  ing elements of the competition between the fac- 7  tories and their workmen,{as, w������fll as. between i  the workmen of the several factories of the many  countries making footwear.  And as I said before,  this one trade stands for all grades ^and kinds of  factile enterprises.      y ,^ ; \ I.  (Continued on Pafle t)  Two Items Mliiterest for  Tbe Public Library Bnildfnflr.

Wt><&  PROHIBITION OF OPIUM SMOKIH6 IN INDIA  "Chickens come home to roost." British India  |s realizing the truth of the .proverb, Great Britain fastened the opium curse upon China half a  century ago, in order to establish a market for the  fruits of the profitable poppy culture in India.  But the same industry fastened the pernicious  drug habit upon the people of Indiajalao, until its  "ravages have, become so great' that the govern>' -  ment is now bestirring itself to crush it. The government of India, we are told in Ul official organ,  the Gazette of India, "has come to the conclusion  that the time is ripe to take furtlro^teps in the  direction of direct and unqualified prohibition.  It considers that it is desirable to suppress all pub,,  lie gatherings for the purpose of. smoking.opium,  whether they are called saloons; clubs or social  assemblies, or by any other .name.%what������ver, and  to "prohibit all manufacture of opium-smoking  preparations save by an individual of a small  quantity for his own private consumption." Again  we are told: "The finance department of the government' of India has issued a resolution which  shows that the administration is so much in earnest in its desire to suppress opium f*moking and  eating that it is not .willing to premit monetary  considerations to override the moral issue involved." This is good. (Let those in this country  who imagine that "regulation"- is the proper way  to deal with moral evils, take notice that the gov-  ernment of India finds prohibition the only effective policy). We do not learn, however, that the  government of India has gone to the root of the  matter, as China has done, by prohibiting the cultivation of the poppy plant, from which alone  opium is derived. Suppression of the source^ pf  supply is essential to the wiping out of any evil,  . whether it is opium smoking or liquor drinking.  As regards alcoholic liquors, this means the sup- ^  pression of th e manufacture and sale.' ,  capacity. -Prom this time forward the process ���������**, ; ^one-quarter, that is twdnty-fiyo percent  dwarfing will inevitably set in, unless, more room '  be provided. .    _ t  The top flat is used by* the Art, Historical and"  Scientific Association as'a,museum and art gal- .  lery.   For these purposes the space is inadequate.  Already there are specimens and various articles  .enough on this upper floor to occupy, if well sej [���������  out, double-the space now, within reach,   Hence/  it '.follows that just as truly aa space is required;  for the Library work, to is moat* space needed'iSr '-'_  the Museum and Art Gallery.  The'Library Board, at ita last naeeting, passed ]  a resolution asking the City Council fo secure', on  lease, two of the upper flata of the "Dawson  ���������  Building."  It is to be hoped that without delay this will be  done by the Council recently elected. In closing *  this, I may say that the Council is under contract'  to properly house the specimens,now under tie  care of the Art, Historic .and Science Association.  With both the top floor and Ihe rest of the build-.  ing overcrowded neither the library nor the Museum ean do adequate and satiafrctory work.  about thirtynhra or thirty-fow \.^jM  the signing of the Treatyi;������^-Be*li^ \w$9  ., eitt^fi*om the etmtta*af������*o^^  ''A fe-feOfte ������������ London.

Of  , these two courses, it is clear to my mind that it it  wiser to tax the improvemtntt to far at will hi'  required to make np the deficiency whieh would  surely embarrass the exchequer otherwise.       ,  First of all, I would say that there might be a <  general exemption on improvements up to about  i three thousand dollars.   Then the balance of tbe  ; improvements   could  be  taxed  up  to  twenty,  twenty-five or thirty per cent, as'the case would  - demand.   This would work no serious hardship,  and at all events it would not be as bad as increasing the-rate -up-to -twenty-five mills'.   This  latter course would give the city a bad name in  the money markets, and would give a very bad  example in many ways, '  It is a fact that the real estate of Vancouver  (Fhaa not been assessed anything like to its value.   ���������  In -view of coming,years and their inevitable in-  ' crease of taxation, there should be A reasonable  , Uplift in the assessment, so as to avoid' the very  difficulty I refer ,to( above. y  -  .

The, Institute should later  undertake the examination of implements, machinery and utensils' of all kinds necessary for the  milk industry, so as to ascertain their utility, ete.  It should observe all that concerns this industry  in all parts, of the world, and study combinations  that might prove injurious to it and prevent their  doing so. It should always be an courant as to  all facts and events relating to the milk industry  throughout the world in order to be able tp furnish  information on statistics, the literature of the  subject, the model dairies of Germany and other  countries, themethods''Everywhere used in the  production of7 milk* the places from which it  coj^eaythe icaarketsrto wkiehf it is se  tions and other matters of the kind. ���������  A NATIONAL WSTTTUTB FOJt THIS MTLK  INDUSTRY WOBPIANY.       .  There are already in "Germany national institutes in connection with the ftdustries subsidiary  to agriculture, such as starch factories* sugar re-_  fineries, distilleries, breweries, flour-mills and bakeries. Efforts have been made, to establish a similar institute in order to provide a centre where  researches into the subject of the raising of milk-  producing animals, of their feeding, and of the  milk industry might be made.  To Bcnno Martiny and the German Dairy Industry Association is due the merit of trying to  arouse the interest of thle Government and of the.  agricultural centres in such an establishment. In  1908 the Dairy Industry Association requested Dr.  H. Weigmanh of Kiel to draw up a memorial on  the subject of the milk industry in North America.  From this memorial the easbciaton came to the  conclusion that the German, milk industry ought  not to be allowed tb fall behind that of other  countries, and as milk, perhaps the most important of agricultural products, cannot be imported  like cereals, cattle, fruits and vegetables, a na-*  tional institute for this industry ought to be  established. A special commission was accordingly  appointed to diffuse information on the subject.  To carry on the needful researches this National  Institute should form a staff of specialists with  BOOT AND FODDEB C������0t������S OF CANADA  Report for the month ended October 31,1912'  r The returns from agricultural correspondents  at the end'of October show that upon'total areas  for potatoes, turnips, mangolds, etc., hay and clo-  ver, alfalfa, fodder corn and sugar beets, amounting to 8,732,000 acres, as compared with 9,160000  acres last year, the total value of the products is  $192,568,500, compared with $223,790,000, a decrease in value of $31,221,500. This decrease is ���������  caused by the diminution, both in area and yield,  of the hay and clover crop, which is less than last  year in area by 426,000 acres, in yield by 2,000,000  tons, and in value by $28,380,000. All the other  crops show increases, except alfalfa, the area of  which in Canada is relatively small. The yield  of potatoes is 81,343,000 bushels of the value of  $32,173,000, of turnips and other roots ������7,505,000  bushels, .value $20,713,000, of fodder corn 2,858,-  900 tons, value $13,557,500, of sugar beets 204,-  000 tons, value $1,020,000 and of alfalfa 310,100  tons, value $3,610,000.  In quality all these crops are marked high, the  standard percentage being about 87, excepting  for turnips, etc., which are 93, and for fodder corn  whieh is 82. A word of caution is necessary with  regard io potatoes, for whilst'yield and quality  are generally gooa at harvesting, there are numerous reports of rotting in the cellars, the .produce of the heavier soils having been considerably  affected by the constant rains.  The area estimated to be sown to Jail wheat in  five provinces of Canada this season aggregates;  1,086,800 acres, as compared with 1,156,900 acres  the area sown last year. This represents a liet  decrease of 70,100 acres, or 6 p.c. In Ontario the  acreage sown is 696,000 acres, compared with  797,200 acres, a decrease of 101,200 acres, or12.6  p.c.; in Alberta, the figures are 312,000 acres as  against 300,700, an increase of 11300 acres or  3% p.c; and in Saskatchewan the area is 72,000  acres against 53,000 acres, an* increase of 19,000  acres, or 36 p.c. Small areas in Manitoba and  British Columbia complete the totals. The decrease in area is due to the persistent rains which  have hindered plowing and sowing operations.  The condition of this crop on October 31 was  92.67 p.c. of the standard for the five provinces.  It was above 90 in each province, except Manitoba,  where the small area of about 4000 acres had a  per cent condition of 88%. > *  Don't fail to visit PALESTINE in  Vancouver at the Imperial Rink.

The Tr,eaty. of 13erlin wat signed in 1878 and ttf^  tered the map in' several particulars which do,  not concern us, as our starting point is offer  these changes had taken place.    Some of tho  Balkan st at eV so much before the public eye at  present,   became   semi-independent   states���������and  evolved into fully independent principalities. Each  in due course became a kingdom, Bulgaria .only a  few years ago following the lead. Greece of course  is not a Balkan   state  although   in  the Balkan  League nearly a hundred years ago it won its  freedom from Turkish eontrol.  A few years ago Austria annexed Bosnia ar*d  Herzgovina in spite of Servian protests.   Servia N  has neither forgotten nor forgiven her big neighbor.  Norway was united with Sweden under the rule  of the popular and erudite Oscar.   Now they are-  , two" kingdoms ea������h with its own sovereign, Norway'having elected Haakon VII as the first king  of a new dynasty. ^  '-; Portugal  The assassination of Carlos of Portugal and tbe  heir apparent is fresh in our minds, as is also tht  overthrow of the monarchy which followed in the  reign of the young king Manuel. In this case  and that of Norway the changes was in the form  of government, not in the boundaries.  Italy  Born as a united kingdom a generation ago,  Italy has just emerged from a costly war with  Turkey. The territorial changes will be mentioned in dealing with Africa. So in the cases of Germany, Turkey, France, Spain and Great Britain  as they all have either gained or lost territory in  that continent.  (CortfJmf-Mf to Ftgo f) -   .

Robert Rogers, Minister of  Public Works, haB given Instructions  for the expropriation of several lots in  the vicinity of the Sugar Reflinery, and  as soon as expropriation is effected the  construction of a-dock will proceed.  It is expected that the entire- work  when completed will cost close to  $500,000.  Vancouver drew Rapidly in 1012.  With a total value of building opera  tions for the year of $19,137,297. the-  amount for the year has eclipsed that  of the year .1911, by $1,4771837. The  total for,' last year was $17,659,460.  The total number ot permits for the  year was 3.199, wliieh Is 433 more than  last year, with a titat of 2,763. The  permits ror the last day of the year  are not included.  The heaviest month for the year was  that of October, when $3,597,795 was  the Value of the permits issued by the  building Inspector's office.

BUY YOUR CHRISTMAS PRESENTS FROM US  7 NAP CHANGES  (Continued from Pass I)  A8IA.  , Political changes here take   up- a,  far vaster area than in Europe, embracing all of China, Korea/ Formosa,  the Phllllplne Islands and Persia.  CHINA.  Ever since tbe Tal Ping rebellion,  when our own General Gordon won  his reputation aa "Chinese Gordon,**  this ancient country has been the  storm centre of Asia. The Boxer  rising and the primitive expedition  of European and , American . forces  cost many lives. The war wltb Japan  brought defeat and humiliation and  the loss of Formosa, and placed Japan In the forefront of tbe nations  Tbe great %ar between the latter  empire and Russia, fought on Chinese  territory, and handled so brilliantly  on land and sea by Oyama, Toga and  Nogi, is still fresh in our minds, Tbe  rebellion which drenched China with  blood and gave birth to the republic  is more recent stlllA* a result of tbe  Russian war the fortress of Port Arthur, the southern half of Saghalien  and other Islands became Japanese.  KOREA.  The Russian war opened the wa*y  for the annexation of the Hermit  Kingdom by the Sunrise Empire two  years.ago.,  .   .        .   MONGOLIA.  One of the great provinces' of tbe  old Chinese Empire^ has since tbe  republic was inaugurated, declared  ita .independence, and 'baa come under Russian control.  v PHI LI PIN E8  As a result of the defeat of the  Spanish in the war wltb tbe United  State's, these immense Islands were  transferred to American; control. By  the terms of peace Spam was allowed  120,000^000 -for them; The United  States whipped Spain in a few  months. Tbey, however, were ten  years subduing the natives.  PERSIA'  Nominally Persia is still an independent empire, whose *ruler Is called  a Shah. Tbe condition In tbs north  is similar to that of Mongolia, in  Russian control, and in the soutb, ss  In Egypt, subject to the dernier mot  of Britain.   -  . ^   AUSTRALIA. f  Again tbls la a case of change of  form of government only, tbe several colonies having united to form  the^ Commonwealth, each colony being a atate. Juat aa Newfoundland hss  chosen to remain outside of the Canadian Confederation] so hss New Zealand decided to stay ont of the Australian. They are similar in several  respects. Both are "New" though  Newfoundland claims tbe honor of being the oldest British colony. Both  are British colonies; remaining apart  from the neighboring ^British confederacies tbey naturally should unite  with. Both are Island colonies. Men*  tloning New Zealand, we might note  that a couple of years ago lt was declared a "Dominion."  AFRICA.  The maps of Africa used a quarter  of a century ago, would hardly be recognized now,, so many bave been  the changes since. Where large regions Vere charted as nnexplored.  we now find great states. The Whole  -continent, with the exception, of. the  old kingdom of Abyssinia and the  new Republic of Liberia., has been  brought under European control or  protection, Morocco being the latest  state to lose Its real independence.  No "Monroe" or other doctrine has  been able to prevent European powers from annexing territory tbere, sd  lib. Paul Kt*uger dreamed of a power  that would drive out the British and  establish such a doctrine fpr. South  Africa. His efforts to carry hla dream  into effect resulted In a vast extension of British dominion in that  neighborhood. Only once did a Euro-  pea*; power, In recent times at least,  fail signally and that was when Italy  tried her power against that of the  Negus of Abyssinia.  Africa Is now as South America  was a century ago, owned by Europe,  with the difference that In the present case instead of Spain and Portugal being the masters, nearly all  the powers have a share���������Britain/,  France,\ Spain, Portugal, Germany,  Italy, Belgium, end nominally only,  Turkey. Wbat a hundred years will  bring to Africa is bard to say���������maybe a number of independent states,  as in South America, but more likely  the commercial development of a  number of self-governing states in a  relation to their various European  home governments similar to that existing between Canada, Australia and  South Africa and their home government at London.  We have seen in a few years the  Transvaal Republic and Orange Free  State conquered and annexed by Britain, Madagascar, Algiers, 'French  Soudan and Morocco taken under the  wing of France���������in tact, change every  Where. And what is most important  to us, we have seen a great confederation of British' States take place  forming the Union of South Africa.  80UTH AMERICA.  No changes of boundaries of any  moment have taken place among tbe  States In South America* Constant  quarrelling haa taken place 'between  the various republics over their  boundaries, but no one outside, of* tbe  countries concerned bas been inter-  ester. In fact recent 'maps of South  America show two sets of boundaries  for Venesuela, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil and Bolivia, that claimed  by the republic in question -and' that  dei-aed by its neighbor. The greatest  change in Sooth America was when  Brazil ceased to be an Empire and  became the tenth republic on the con*  tinent. Its emfceror, Dom Pedro, fled  to Portugal, .which has since followed  suit and became a\republlc..  North America  As in South America, there has  been little change here, none on the  continent .proper excepting the forma*  tion of the email republlc^pf Panama,  and the creation. of theCanal, Zone  under American control. Alaska, Can-,  ada, the United States, Mexico and  the flv������ smaller republics, are practically as they were. . ��������� v  2***********9************e  NOTICE is hereby given that !  meetings of the Provincial Le- <  hour Commission wi*l bj^ held at <  the following places:���������- ,yy >  Victoria���������Tuesday  and -Wad:  > nesday.

Upon  these sites it is proposed to erect  ranger, a$d lookout stations which  will be ������o farther apart than one day's  trip by pack-train, along the primary  trail.system of the Breseau Reserve-  It is the'intention to erect, this winter, at least three or four log cabins  for the rangers. A telephone system  is also being planned whereby these  Ranger Stations will be connected by  telephone to the forest supervisor's  office. This office Is centrally located  and telephone lines will run in from  all directions, much in the manner of  the spokes of a wheel with tbe central  officers the hub.  This region is one of the richest coal  regions In Canada and the future de  velopment of these coal fields will be  amazing. A number of large coal mines  are already ln Operation, and, with  the completion of the branches of the  G. T. P. railway now under construction, will be shipping thousands of tons  daily.  With tbe future development of this  country, the timber must be preserved.  This region has once been, forested  with very valuable Umber, which has  largely been destroyed by fires in  the past There is still an abundant  supply of mine-prop timber, however,  and the whole region is green with  young lodge pole pine from ten to  thirty years in age. If preserved from  fire this will be an Invaluable asset  to the country, both for economic uses  and as protection to tbe headwaters  'of all rivers which rise ln the foothills of the .eastern slope.

It was noticeable that even though  there waa no mayoralty contest, tha  voters turned out ln surprisingly large  numbers. In Wards Four and Six the  polling was comparatively heavy.  Details of Ward Voting.  In Ward One. after having headed  the poll for'four years, Aid. Ramsay  was forced  ��������� to yield that  place of honor to Aid. Hepburn, who  obtained a lead of about 20.  : There waa no aldermanic vote in  Ward ��������� Two, Aid. Crowe and Mr. A.  Cleland being elected by acclamation.  .Aid. Kirkpatrick was re-elected In  Ward Three, but had to take second  place to a new man, Mr. Stephen  Ramage. .'.'/   -;:':>.- ;   '' y ���������  ��������� Ward Four showed the; heaviest  aldermanic vote in the city with a  total of., 3088, divided among seven  candidates.  Alcl.-Elect Evans, who headed the  poll in Ward Four, was somewhat of  a dark horse*and was hardly expected  to <h> so well. 7  , Mr. Walter R. Hamilton also polled  a good vote- and- came third on the  '���������������*���������.-��������� ���������  All over the city Mr. Evans', election stiems to be very populaft ��������� , ���������  Aid. King, the .defeated alderman  In Ward Four this year, headed the  poll at the last election in 1912. He  attributed^ his defeat Jresterday to  the fact that tbe vote, particularly in  his own; end of the ward, was badly  divided eo that many persons who  would otherwise have been supporters  of his gave votes to the other candidates. - ' ���������  "I made the best tight I knew how  anyway," aald the alderman today. "I  feel sure that Mr. Evans will make a  good succesBor." ���������  It was practically: a foregone con*  elusion tnat In Ward Five Messrs.  Black and Mahon, both new men,  would be elected to the council. Mr.  A. P. Black led the ijoll with the aat-  isfactory total of 945, the second  largest vote received by aw* of the  aldermen-elect. Mr. C. E. Mahon waa  about 50 behind, with tbe third contestant, O. C. Jones, near the 500  mark.' ;'7' ',  Received Large** Vota*  Ward Six gave one of tbe winning  candidates there, Ald.-Elect McMaater,  who sat on the council in 1911, the  largest vote recorded in the city, 946,  or about 150 in excess of tbat received  by Aid. Cameron, who waa re-elected  tor the second time. Tbls ward stood  second in total vote eaat for aldermen,  having 3023, as against 3088 tor Ward  Four. Aid. White, although defeated,  ran a fair race, polling 708 votes.  Ward   Seven,   Hastings   Townslte,  Aid. Woodside swept the field with a  vote of "679, nearly 200 in advance of j  that polled by Aid. McBeath.  Aid. Frank Trimble had little difficulty . in obtaining re-election ln  Ward Eight. He was 100 votes ahead  of his nearest competitor, Mr. F. P.  Rogers, also elected. Mr, C N. James  was well to the' front, but the remaining aspirants for office were away  back.., ���������   <  Commission Owen's Sweep.  Leading in six wards out of the  eight, Park Commissioner Owen made  almost a clean sweep in his re-election to the park board.  His total  for the whole city was 3747,  being.more than 1000 ahead of the  total for Mr. G. M. Endacott, the other  successful candidate for a position on  the board.  License Commissioners.  Although Aid. C. W. Enright made  a good run for the license board, he  was unable to defeat either ot the old  members, Dr. F. P. Patterson or Mr.  R. S. Pyke, who were re-elected-for  another year. Dr. Patterson's return  was never in doubt, and he secured a  total of 3840 votes, as against 2954 for  Pyke and 2866 for Enrjght.  By-Laws.  Only One By-Law Defeated.  The city market by-law of $12,000,  the smallest on the list of 21, was the  only money measure rejected by ���������'.the  rate;niye~' . ''though It ob  tained a majority, the necessary three-  fifths was lacking by a small margin.  The market by-law was defeated by  Wards One and Two, which both gave  decidedly adverse votes.

Of this there can be nodoubt  baaed'oil sound economics.  Now, let us turn to another phase  of this problem. Let us suppose that  Canada,' through the Government, "take  up' the trade of boots and shoes. Suppose tbat the Canadian Government  make all footwear and sell it to the  consumer, Just as it handles the postage problem of Canada. What would  be the result? What is the result now  with the workman, in the Post Office  Department? What is the case with  the Revenue department? And with  the Civic Service? ,,' All alike! They,  the employees, are paid similar wages  to the wages of similar employes elsewhere In the country. This comes from  the fact that the numbers applying  for these situations regulate the wages  paid. If there were a, scarcity, then  up would go the wages. But there are  plenty and more than can be employed  at these several kinds of employment.  Therefore the wages stand on an average rate with other callings in lite,  in the country.  So it would be with the new civil  service, that of the Root and Shoe  "Trade, undertaken by the Government.  Rut let us again suppose a case.  Let ua suppose that the workmen in  the Shoe buslnetft could And a way to  force the wages beyond tbe aerage  paid elsewhere. Then the next step  would be a rush in large, and1 larger  numbers from other callings Into the  shoe trade. Too many would clamour  for entrance thereto, and the voice of  the whole people would demand a. lowering of the wages to the average paid  by private enterprises in other factories. -y./y: '.  Again, let us suppose that the shoe  trade wages, In the hands of the Government were kept up beyond tbe average atandard. Then outside competition would knock at our Canadian  doors, and Canada, by the demand bf  her own majority would ask to have  the cheapest goods placed within the  reach of dally use. Thua Canada would  in the end Me forced to lower the ahoe  wages, or go out of the business.  But let ua again suppose tbat Canada would keep out the foreign-made  boots and shoes by a "protective tariff," sufficiently high to protect the  high standard of wages paid the Canadian workmen. The immediate result  would be an increase in the price of  footwear, and the people would demand one of two things either that  the protective tariff} be. taken off, or a  similar tariff be placed ton all similar  goods. Then Canadian workmen might  have, on this count, the higher wage.  %mp~ aq pmoA itnse* Mopib ������*|i ue*|j,  Canadian, manufactured goods would  cost more than those ^of the other  countries, and Canadian export would  cease at once.  Canada might, by a high protective  wall, increase, the wages ot her work  men, but all those now employed In  making goods for export would be  thrown out of employment. True, Can  ada might stop all importation of fac-  toiled goods that her people could  make within her limits. This would  give work to some of those thrown out  on the other count, but would not go  very far���������for it is a fact that most of  the goods imported into our country  are of such a sort as cannot be made  In Canada at alii -ar ma*% therein to  advantage.  Now we come to aaother phase of  this problem. It Is this: The eaa* aa  supposed above*���������that bs the supposition that Canada should manufacture  all her footwear, and, fbr that matter,  all the goods which could be made  from homegrown raw material���������would  be met wltb Its equivalent is tfia United States and other mamttacturmg  countries. They too would manufacture their own boots and' shoes aa a  government undertaking.  One thing would hawe to contr a^out  in thia case. The various goveT-nments  would haye to conclude to not enter  the field of the other fa competition.  This means that the* United States  would make her own footwear, ana  Canada would do likewise. Each would  would make her own* woodeixwara;  Each her own iron, gold, lead, sJYre**;  and other wares. This would cut out  national competition thus fmri.-.'������������������'  But the Statea would, tor a tlma at  leaat, until It had learned to grow Its  own timber, be forced to come to Canada for the' raw material. Canada  would be forced to go to tbe States  for raw cotton. Here at once would  come about a true basis for reciprocity  ���������in fact, at the present time the only  true basis to be had. Canada could  bring into her domains from the States  such goods as she Is unable to grow,  or produce in the raw. And the States  could do similarly with (the raw material . that she cannot produce and  which Canada does. Thus we could'  have true reciprocity aide by aide  with a natural and reasonable protective tariff.      \  But when all thia had been arranged mutually /and aatlefactoriiy between Canada and the States, and  alM between these and the other  countries, then what?     \  Would competition cease? If the  several countries should arrive st the  above state and condition, how would  the employeea be placed?  .Let us now re-atate our case. By  the above, aU countries are the manufacturers of all their raw and f&ctor-  led goods. There is no Individual or  company enterprise. The governments do the entire work, Just as they  now do in relation to the clvrr service, j the revenue, customs, exercise,  and i postal departments.  Lit us for the moment sweep away  all ttfe enormous trade balances a������{  between the several countries���������which  we -cannot sw^ep away, as I shall  Bhow, later on. Let us suppose there  is no trade carried on for profit. All  profit-trade being cut out there could  be no competition front this standpoint.   '   * ';, .'/'''j  What then?   What about Belglum.l  Holland, England, and similar coun  tries?   Wbat about Germany?':"These'  ^vTUT  coantrles depend'upon-their export  trade. When this is ended/ then eqds  their* greatneas, their* vaat populations,  their immense wealth 'and power. But  these countries, now so depending  upon their factories for export trade,  are the forerunners of those which do  not yet so depend.  In a few yeara the United States  will depend upon her export traded her  factorled exports, as surely as does  England or Germany today. What  then?" What la the scheme of Social*  lam tb meet this state���������a state withitf  hailing distance? But again, for argument's sake, let us suppose this- all  swept away aa with a paste wand.  Does this do away with fierce competition? Who are to be the Shoe-  awn, the Cottonanen, the Waggonmen,.  the Reaper-machlnemen?  It Jr plain from the above, that as  then Urttr be no export of Canadian  factorled goods, there will he none ,  manufactured beyond what are required" for home consumption. What  men or-commission will regulate the  masses so as to turn, the exact numbers towards' the shoe-trade, or cotton*  trade, or other trades of the country? Will not our own people, in increasing; numbers, demand a. chance  to earn a living? Will they not cry  aloud fbr work and food?' And the  weak, the lame, the aged,' and others  must be puahed aside, or other reasonable provisions must be.made to meet  their conditions.

The members  lof Torrejon's gang, suddenly convert-  led Into most peaceful citizens, had  [dropped their arms and were ranged  jln meek and gentle groups along tbe  jglade. Across tbe clearing was  streaming a long column of superbly  jaraed and mounted riders, and addl-  itlonal horsemen were already holding  every exit from the camp-ground.  ��������� '1 believe.** the little man resumed,  :*that every man la entitled to a first  'perusal of hla own correspondence.  fWUl you kindly hand those envelopes  jto ma, Herr Zollern?

Gomes Esteral took the battered old  ball gingerly, as lf suspecting a bomb-  plot or a practical Joke. Brockett,'  sensing the comedy of the scene,;  laughed unrestrainedly for, a moment,'  and then, taking tbe ball from the,  .puzzled leader, ripped open the seams.  The yarn was torn away, the papers,  !camo in view, and Brockett, still'  laughing, handed tbe crumpled mis-J  slves to Gomez Esteral.  ; "Madrl������ de DIos!" cried Juan Torrejon, "but that was cunning work!  The craft of a fox! The generalship  of a Napoleon! But wbat, young  "friend, would you have done lf yoa  had hot possessed this ball?"  Both boys joined in a peal ot merriment.

Baron' Zollern drew the worthless  envelopes from his pocket, tore them  open, and stared at the blank sheets  they bad contained. Then, with a  gesture of utter disgust and sardonic  contempt, he offered them to Mr.  Yazimoto. The Japanese struck them  from the German's hand, sank down  upon the sod, and sobbed like a Uttle  child. Baron Zollern drew himself-up  proudly, gallantly.  . "For me," be spoke, "Id lss all ofer.

Brockett. and Solano stood with  bared beads as tbey. clasped, the  baron's hand. A great soul had broken  before them, and a patriot had: come  to tbe bitter ending of hla dtresms.  They clasped the German's bands���������  and all waa silence save the sobbing  of the Uttle Japanese, unnerved aqd  overwhelmed.  "Id roa not a fair contest," the  baron aald, patting the boys on tbo  shoulder. "Dere vas you two���������und  sgalnsd you twenty spies und skilled  hunters of men.
