In many  U>arts of England liquor is prohibited. In other  'r������arts the hours of sale have been shortened.  |In Canada we have dont* little but talk. Why  not either close the bars outright, or. at least  greatly shorten the hours of sale*  This is a great national question and Ihe  times demand that we, as citizens, look it  squaivly in the face. Are we going to demand  that onr whims and habits of. years be undisturbed? Or are-we going to say outright that we  are prepared to "do our bit,v and whether we  go to th _ front or stay at home we will see that  our efficiency is not impaired by apoetites everywhere acknowledged as inimical to fitness?  Surely the example of our King and other  great leaders should mean something to us. To  whom is our allegiance given? King George V.,  or King Alcohol?  THE BALKAN STATES  THE IMMEDIATE COURSE of the Balkan  States and Greece will have a marked effect  on the future of Europe, not merely because  of the power and influence of their armies, but  rather because by their action now, they will  determine their fate after the war is over. It  may, therefore, be of interest to our readers to  know something of these states. -  Roumania  Roumania has an area of 33,487 square miles,  and a population in 1912 of 7,508,000 or about  the same as that of Canada.  King Ferdinand I. has ruled over this kingdom only since October 11, 1914, succeeding  his uncle, King Carol. King Ferdinand is 50  I years of age and has six children.  If Roumania consists of the union of 'the two  principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia, which  union occurred on December 23,1861, which was  the origin of the present Roumania, but it was  still under the control of. Turkey. In' 1866 a  revolution broke out, culminating in a declaration of independence from Ti������key./i������4������7J. All  citizens of full age, paying taxes; afi electors,  voting in three divisions known as electoral colleges* For the first college a property qualification of ������50 is required. For the second college  those paying a- tax of 20 lee (about -$4) or- upwards, or retired officers, etc., have a vote. The  third college is composed of those who, paying  any tax to the state belong to neither of the other  colleges; those who can read and write and have  an income of ������12 from rural lands, vote directly,  Nthe remainder vote indirectly; each group of fifty,  indirect voters elect a delegate who votes with  tbe direct voters.  In religion 90 per cent, belong to the Greek  Catholic ehurch (state supported) and the balance are Roman Catholic, Protestant. Jews, Armenians and Mahometans. Education is free  and compulsory (wherever there are schools).  In 1909 about 60 per cent, of the population  over 7 years of age could neither read nor  write. Military service is compulsory and  universal. The peace footing consists of. about  130,000 men, but, with reserves, would amount  to over 500,000 trained men in war time.  In commerce Belgium has been Roumania's  best customer,-with Great Britain-nextv Their  imports come chiefly from Germany, Austria and  Great  Britain  in the order mentioned.  Bulgaria  Bulgaria was created a principality by the  treaty of Berlin in 1878, with an autonomous  Christian government, but under the suzerainty of the Sultan of Turkey. On October 5,  1908, Bulgaria declared her independence with  the reigning Prince Ferdinand as King, or Czar*  as he prefers.  On September 30, 1912, Bulgaria allied with  Servia, Greece and Montenegro in a war on  Turkey (the first Balkan war) which ended in  the treaty of London, May 30, 1913, by which  treaty Turkey ceded to the allies all its European territory west of a line drawn from Midia  to Enos.  The Balkan League broke up in a quarrel  over the division of this territory and within a month of the signing pf the treaty (June  29, 1913) the second Balkan war broke out. and  Roumania intervened to restore peace which  finally came in August, 1913, with a re-arrangement of boundaries.  Bulgaria has an area of 43,305 square miles,  and a population of 4,752,000, of which 3,200,000  are Bulgars, 488,000 Turks, 75,000 Roumanians,  65,000 Greeks, 98.000 Gypsies, 38,000 Jews, the  balance of mixed nationalities.  ���������  Military service is compulsory arid the army  consists of about 280,000 men, besides reserves,  lines of communication, etc., or perhaps1 an efficient army of 450,000 men. X  About five-sevenths : of. the population are  farmers, and her' agriculture products are of considerable importance.       X  Like Roumania, her best customer is Belgium,  and her imports come chiefly fromXAustria,  Germany and Great Britain in the order mentioned. X  Greece  Greece was a province of Turkey since the  latter part of the fifteenth century, and gained her independence by an insurrection in 1821-  29, confirmed by the Protocol of London, 1830,  and declared a kingdom under the protection  of  Great Britain, France and Russia,  In area Greece is 25,000 square miles with  a population of about 2,765,000, to which should  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver and the Western People    ^  VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA,    FbDDAY; OCTOBER 1, 1915.

THE CITY COUNCIL  MEMBERS OF THE CITY CIUNCIL are making themselves exceedingly busy oVer the  present system of ward voting. .Elections  will soon be the order of the day, and the aldermen know it too well. As yet no concerted  effort has been made to solve the unemployment  problem as it affects Vancouver. There is now  a vast army of unemployed voters who will no  doubt wield a strong influence at the January  elections.  THE VOTERS' LIST  MONDAY, OCTOBER 4TII, is the last day on  which those desiring a vote may register.  It is highly desirable that every man over  21 years of age who has the necessary qualifications should see that his name is enrolled on  the list. Ere another list is prepared, a vote on  the liquor question will be taken. The liquor  interests are signing men up wholesale from the  boze-counters. < Men of the Prohibition Army it  is certainly up to you to be on the list when  voting time comes around.     Register NOW.  MAJOR DE MARTIN  THE "WORLD" of Monday published a letter  received from the Minister of Foreign Affairs  of Belgium by Mr. S. Allman, of North Vancouver, regarding the identity of Major de Martin, who posed as an officer of the- Belgian army,  and as such visited many centres in Canada a  few months ago, promoting patriotic donations  on behalf of the stricken Belgian people. Mr.  Allman, of North Vancouver, was a resident bf  Belgium for many years and thoroughly understands the Belgian people and their language.  Naturally he was interested in Major, de Martin,  and sought his acquaintance while here. During  a conversation with the visitor ,Mr. Allman's  suspicions were aroused as to his identity, and  acting on these suspicious, a letter was' dispatched, to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, of Belgium.  The reply follows: , '  Monsieur Sidney Allman, Lynn Yalley, B. C./  Canada.  (The following is a free translation:)  "I have the .honor to .'acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the first of this month and  regret'4o infornrT you that there' is no'::officer1  of the name of. De Martin in the Belgian army.  "I need hardly add that the person using this  name, and who has been lecturing and making  collections in Victoria and Vancouver is-wholly  unknown to me, that he has no such mission  and has no authority for making promises in  the name of tbe king's government.  "I thank you for the sympathy which you  express with regard to my country and am  greatly touched by the generosity shown by the  Canadian people toward my countrymen who  arc victims of $he war.  "It is only to be hoped that the gifts so  generously made should always be confided-to  persons of an honor above all suspicion, such,  for example, as our'consuls.  "I hhve only to hope that you will give  this matter the^gre&t publicity which it deserves*  and that the above letter will be copied by the  Canadian and United States papers generally."   (Sgd:)"   "        BEYENS.    --   --  If this be true, and the evidence most assuredly points in that direction, then the said De  Martin has swindled the people of Canada in  great style. Canadians in general have,a profound sympathy for stricken Belgium ancfare not  slow in doing their share in helping the people  of that country, but such episodes as that which  has now come to light are indeed humiliating.  Hereafter,^ those who pose as sympathizers in the  same or a "like capacity as De Martin will very  likely got a frigid reception in Canada unless  their credentials are bona fide.  be added the new territory gained through the  recent Balkan war, making a total of 42,000  square miles, Und a. population of 4,800,000.  Military service is compulsory and her army  consists of a peace strength of 60,000 men and  officers and a war strength of about 300,000.  Greece also has a very considerable navy  of eleven battleships and cruisers, 14 destroyers, 7 modern torpedo boats, 2 submarines and  several older boats. Its training and organization has been.under a British naval mission  since 1911.  The above is a brief outline of the. three  powers which "may be brought into the present  great''war. Xlt is not their military strength  which counts, but rather their strategic position. For instance, Roumania's stubborn neutrality hag prevented Germany rushing supplies and troops to the assistance of Turkey.  Bulgaria, if friendly to Turkey, will prolong  the work of. forcing the Dardanelles, while, on'  the other hand, if she threw in her lot with the  Entente Allies,she would at once threaten the  Turkish i'r^ar and force ah earlier evacuation  of Constantinople.  Greece cannot afford to abandon her ancient  friend and ally, Great Britain, and will form an  admirable naval base for our fleets; and, if  Greece plays the game right now she will  likely become: at the end of, the war the local  governor of the Dardanelles in the interest of  the great powers.  The next few weeks-- will be filled with epoch  making events for these three states.  THE CONNAUGHT BRIDGE  ANNOUNCEMENT HAS BEEN MADE by,the  City Council that the repairs to/ the Connaught bridge are about completed, and in  another day or two the bridge will again, be  open to traffic. It is now over sirs, months since  the structure was partially wrecked by a, fire  of unknown origin. The opening of the bridge  will prove a boon to business men in Mount  Pleasant who have severely felt the absence of  ' traffic across the Cambie street structure',. It  is a known fact that several business houses  have had to close up during the time bridge  construction was held Up, and now that the  traffic will be resumed, it is hoped that these  merchants will find sufficient business to warrant a resumption of activities in that section  of the city. .  A WORLD OF HEROES  THE WAR has completely closed the mouths of  those pessimists who have been declaring for  a long time that the human race was deteriorating. They have argued that, owing to more  luxurious living, men and women were being  enervated; their physical and moral qualities  were not up to the standard of former years.  We don't hear any of this kind of talk at  present. The war, has shown that both men and  women to-day, in the British Empire- and in  every other country, are capable of making greater sacrifices than they have ever made in the  past.  It is inevitable that our eyes, should be fixed  upon the men in the trenches. The awful experience which they must undergo causes them to  pretty well fill our minds. It is fitting that their  (heroism should be  properly recognized.   Never  1 have men faced death in so many different  ways, and with  so   much  cheerfulness, as  the  ��������� troops in France and Flanders. Every word that  can be said in praise of a man giving himself  for his country is due to them.  But we must not forget the women���������those  who have gone to the front to nurse and to  succor the. wounded. They have a- task before them that they might well quail at. Those  who have remained at home to work, in munitions factories are undertaking duties which they  never thought of in happier days.     The wives  . whose husbands have been killed in action, the  mothers who bave lost their sons, the sisters who  "Have seen their brothers go to war, full of life  and vigor, and now lie on the fields of Belgium���������  these are heroic figures of the world to-day too.  It matters little in what direction one may  look, heroism is to be found on every side, by'  both sexes, and by all ages.. And so far as  Great Britain and her colonies are concerned,  the sacrifice is a voluntary one. There have  been great and noble deeds done in the past, but  there is nothing in history that equals in magnitude the sacrifice that is being made to-day in  the cause of civilization and humanity. It is  encouraging to those who believe in their kind,  that in this awful hour of stress, men and women  ->give such indubitable proofs that their moral,  physical and spiritual qualities are better than  ever before.  PO NOT fcAPSE YOUJt POLICY  THERE ARE SOME-COMMODITIES that can-  be bought in the open market almost any  time and at substantially the same price, but  life insurance is not one of them. Age determines the price, and, of course, men do not grow  younger.  Men who drop their insurance usually expect  to take it on again at their convenience. Sometimes they can; sometimes they can't. But they  can never replace it at the same rates; so as a  purely business proposition they make a' mistake.  The man who, on second application, finds that  his heart or kidneys has become affected, forever barring him from life insurance, comes to  a realization of the fact that he has made something more than a business mistake.  Many lapses in policies grow out of emergencies which occur in life, forcing a man to  curtail his expenditures to meet his income. Better had the policyholder find that lie can do  without a vacation this year or without the automobile he is financing than to give up his policy and take a-chance upon taking out another  at some future date. A man should take the  same pride in regulating his finances and making current expenses conform to current incomes  as he does in all other matters that enter into  his efficiency. And, above all, he should guard  zealously the protection he has provided for his  home and family, eliminating it from his regular  expense account only when it is a case of absolute and dire necessity. But he should then be  sure'that it is really a necessity to give up what  he may-not be able to again obtain. When a  man takes out a policy of life insurance, whether  it be for one thousand or one hundred thousand,  lie has added that much to his: estate, establishing to that extent, at least, his worth to his  family and to the community. It represents just  so much headAyay. To drop that policy is to"  go backwards-���������to lose ground. Progress���������the ambition to weigh Well in the scales with other  men���������is an innate desire with us all; and if our  lives are well regulated we will not permit our-  seyeg to lose ground if we can help it.  Once you start a policy never For  the sake and benefit of the home which you have  started or propose starting, life insurance is "the.  best asset for a young man. It removes the  fear of distress should anything occur which deprives the family of the bread winner.   .  UNEMPLOYMENT IN  CANADA  /     <������ ,  REPORTS TO THE liABOR DEPARTMENT  at Ottawa as to labor conditions throughout  Canada this fall indicate that unemployment  conditions have been very considerably relieved'  as compared with last fall. At the present time  there is comparatively little unemployment in  urban' centres, except in two or three of the cities  of the far west. The outlook for the coming  winter is considerably brighter than it was thia  time last fall. c  Several causes, all directly due to the war,  have combined to bring about this improvement  of industrial conditions. More than 140,000  men are now under arms and being supported  by the government. Some 2,000 mechanics have  been taken to England for skilled work in manufacturing war munitions there. Approximately  10,000 Italians, Serbians', Russians and^Vrench  have left to join the allied arms. About 8,000  Germans and Austro-Hungarians are interned or  have left the country; and it is estimated that  60,000 men are now engaged in Canadian factories on war orders. This means a grand total of 220,000 men provided for who might otherwise have gone-to swell, the ranks of. the unemployed. The abundant harvests throughout  Canada and the call for harvest help have also  greatly contributed to the amelioration of the unemployment conditions of last year. It is  worth noting in this connection also that at the  present time there is not a single strike or labor  dispute of any magnitude in the whole Dominion  and wages are steady.  - t  IN THE TRAIL OF THE WAR  THOSE WHO SEEK to justify war will find it  extremely difficult to reconcile their theories  with the actual results in such a country as Belgium, for here we haye a tragic example of the  desolation and arrest of all progress which it Is  possible for war to effect.  The report of the; Belgian Relief Commission  touches upon-the economic conditions which war  has brought in its 'train. - To ^supply with food  a population of seven, million people debarred  from co^puurial i&qxpourse with' the outside *  world is *a tiaS-aaen aa hag rarely, if ever, been  paralleled' in, the history of war. Relief committees in the past have come to the aid of  famine-stricken peoples, but never haa a task of  such magnitude as that which confronts the Belgian Relief Commission*' been ^necessitated by a  war between civilized nations.     Belgium before  the war contained'a population, of nearly, eight  million people, which has been reduced by about  one million  through  wastage and exodus.    A  year before the conflict broke out the total Belgian exports and imports of goods were valued at  .$215  per head,  against .$150 per head  for the  United Kingdom, $76 for Germany, and $45 for  the  United  States.     This trade has  absolutely  ceased.    Credit and currency have disappeared.  Railways have been commandeered for military  service,  and all public utilities,  so. far as the  civil population is concerned, have entirely ceased to exist.  In what was one of the most highly industrialized centres in Europe the workers are now  reduced to unemployment, their misery being  accentuated by the interdiction of all movements  of population. The British blockade has been  rela_xed, to admit of thejmportation of_food. This  does not apply to raw materials, and the Belgian worker must find employment under his  German taskmaster or starve. The belligerent  nations have agreed to exempt the shipping of  the Belgian Relief Commission from attack. All  the food imported is resold to the Belgian people  who can afford to purchase, the profits being  devoted to those actually destitute, who now  number about three million. Hitherto one-half of  the funds for Belgian relief received from abroad  has been provided by Belgians. The amount available for distribution among the unemployed and  'destitute averages less than five cents a day. At  least three times this amount is required to preserve life and maintain health, and unless the  industrial activities of the country are revived,  the number of destitute must steadily* increase  and the problem of relief assume serious pro- <  portions.  Food supplies for Belgium come mninly from  the United States, Canada and the Argentine.  In the eight months between November and June  last 653.295 tons have been landed at Rotterdam,  of the estimated value of $46,000,000. Although  the food is sold at a profit, prices are not higher  than in London. It is impossible, of course, for  Britain to allow raw materials into Belgium for  the use of. the Germans, and while the war lasts,  therefore, the number of destitute iii Belgium  will, it is' feared, continue to increase. In little  over a year one of the most densely populated  and prosperous countries in Europe has been  reduced to a state of industrial paralysis, and  her people forced to turn foi* the necessities of,  life to the charity of the outside world. War  for  Belgium is  economic   death.  The Dominion Board of Railway Commissioners has issued a draft order for compulsory connection between independent telephone companies and the Bell Telephone Company.  An Imperial ukase was issued in Petrograd  last week calling to the colors reserves of. the  territorial army. Should the age limit be fixed at 35 years' the call wOuld mean the possible  addition of 8,000,000 men to the Russian armies, including men who had passed through the  first line and reserves and those who heretofore  have been exempted.  ".31  ���������   --X1  'i\.  it  y  ft Friday. October 1, 1915.  ITALY'S RESOURCES  The Kingdom of Italy is computed at 91,277 square miles. Its  population of 26.800,000 in 1871  increased to 32,500,000 in 1910,  and in 1912 was about 35,000.000.  Italy is one of the most densely  populated countries, having 313  people to the square mile, and,  in spite of the large emigration,  her population is rapidly growing.. The excess of births over  deaths was 11.14 in 1902.  The poverty of Italy is due,  not so much .to the Italians, as  to the lack of those natural resources that form the basis.. of  agricultural and industrial prosperity. A very large portion of  her territory is mountainous,  stony and arid, and therefore unsuitable for agriculture. Only one  third of the soil is able to produce food ��������� for man or beast,  whereas approximately two-  thirds of the territories possessed by Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark  and Austria "are devoted to agriculture, and the remaining third  of those countries is covered with  forest. Italy has scarcely any  forest. While 14 per cent, of the  area is classed as forest, much of  it is really brushwood, used for  fuel arid the manufacture of charcoal, coal being little used except  for manufacturing purposes. On  the plains and lowlands there is  a large percentage of swamps,  and malaria, although decreasing, is a serious impediment to  agricultural pursuits. In recent  years considerable areas of. wet  lands have been drained through  government help, and thereby the  breeding grounds of mosquitoes  have been reduced. The effect is  that the health of the people is  greatly safeguarded and land  available for production much extended. The Campagna is bejng  redeeitied, after a thousand years  of noxious existence. ��������� .  While agricultural Italy is handicapped by lack of soil, and of  rain and drinking water, industrial Italy, is still more seriously  hampered by a scarcity of coal  and iron. She produces less coal  per year than both Great Britain  and Germany.. produce in a. single day, while her production of  iron ore is negligible in quantity.  In fact Italy has no valuable  mineral resources except sulphur.  Her industrial development is  further hampered by the total  absence of navigable rivers, "and  by the mountainous nature of the  country, which makes cheap  transportation by rail impossible.  Agricultural laborers constitute one third of the population  of Italy. Their lot is for the most  part a hard one, arid in some regions   absolutely miserable.

"Buy Croocla Made at Borne, a������4 get fcotb the  Goods and the Money."  view of this fact, and considering the density and rapid increase  in population, and lack of. natural resources, it is not to be wondered at that millions of Italians  drawn chiefly from the agricultural classes, should seek a living  in foreign countries. It is noteworthy, however, that the majority of those who emigrate return  to the country of their birth. The  Italian emigrants have been of  the greatest service . to Italy.  They have benefitted the country  in two ways. First, their, remittances of foreign gold have enriched the country to the extent  of fully $100,000,000 per year,  making money pheap arid plentiful, to the advantage of trade, (  commerce and industry.' Second,  the emigrants who have returned from abroad have introduced  hiodern methods of trade and agriculture, and they have infused  into the country a new spirit of  hope, energy, ambition and progress. It may be said that those  returning from America, in particular are modernizing the country.  . Italian thrift is frequently mistaken for poverty by casual  visitors to the country. In Italy,  town-workers and country-workers alike accumulate savings  with the greatest energy. In  1912, the amount on deposit in  institutions for popular savings  was about $1,400,000,000, or forty  dollars per head of * the population. This is the more remarkable when the fact is. borne in  mind that farms and houses are  the favorite investments of Italians of small means. Financially,  Italy is now in a far better position than she has ever been/The  rapid increase in her wealth is  indicated by the greatly improved  position of the Italian banks,  and by the marked improvement  in Italy's national credit.  Agriculture  Since the time, some fifty years  ago, when Italy became united,  Italian agriculture has made rapid progress. This is particularly  true of the last few decades.  Wheat is the most important  arid most widely grown of the  cereals'. The total production of  wheat in 1912 was 160.000,000  bushels, the average yield being  only 14 bushels'per acre. In the  same year 92,000,000 bushels of  corn were grown. Next in im  portance come rye, barley, qats  and rice.  The vine is cultivated throughout the length arid breadth of. the  country. The area in vineyard  has enormously increased, being  about 16,000,000 acres or 14 per  cent, of the total area. The average yearly production of wine  during 1901-03 was not far short  of a thousand million gallons, rather more than half of which is  consumed in the country. The  quality of Italian wine is never  good enough to compete with the  best wines of other countries  After cereals and vineyards,  the most important cultivation  is the olive. In 1905 the production of olive oil was 75,000,000  gallons.  Sugar beets are extensively  grown^ tb^sut^I^sugar-factories.  These factories increased from an  output of 5,972 tons in 1898, to  an output of 325,000 tons in  1913.XKemp, flax and cotton  are grown to some extent, and  tobacco shows a large increase  of recent years.  Sicily is the centre for orange  and lemon production, but these  fruits are grown also in the  mainland of Southern Italy. Almonds and walnuts are widely  cultivated, while the extensive  chestnut forests on the mountain  slopes are of great value both for  wood and fruit. The average production of silk for the period  1900-04 was 5,200  tons.  The number of live-stock shows  a continuous and gratifying . increase over a term of years, particularly as regards cattle and  sheep.  Enormous flocks of sheep are  pastured in the mountains in summer and brought down to the  plains in winter. , "  Northern Italy has long been  noted for its great dairy districts.  With the introduction of modern , methods and of co-operation  progress has been marked in the  production of both cheese and  butter. In 1910 there were 1,035  co-operative dairies in Italy. The  largest dairy in the world is located at Soresina near Cremona.  It works daily 92,400 pounds of  milk.  The large increase in the importation of chemical fertilizers  and of machinery bears witness-  to the progress being made in agricultural development. During  the past twenty-five or thirty  years the imports of. agricultural  machinery have' increased fifteen  fold in value, while the imports  of fertilizers have increased sev-  enteen-fold in value.  Commerce and Industry  Up to a comparatively recent  time,, Italy was almost exclusively an agricultural state, but of  late years her manufacturing industries have greatly expanded.  This has been based largely on  the development of electrical power derived from the waterfalls.  The continued development of  this source of power may perhaps  compensate her for the lack of  coal, and is bound to be an important factor in her industrial  progress.  The progress of the Italian cotton industry is particularly note  worthy. Between 1900 and 1909.  the number of active cotton spin  dies more than doubled, and since  1887 the increase in the export  of cotton goods has been between  sixty and seventy-fold. The  other textile industries ��������� silk,  woollen, flax and jute���������have also  made notable advances. Great  progress has been made in the  manufacture of machinery of all  kinds, especially in the north. For  steel making, foreign pig iron is  chiefly used.  The countries with which Italy  does most of her foreign trade  are: Imports���������United Kingdom,  Germany, United States, France,  Russia and India. Exports���������Swit  zerlund, United States, Germany,  France, United Kingdom and Argentina.  Both the importations jof raw  material and the exportation of  manufactured articles have increased of recent years.

The excess of imports over exports has never been less in recent years than $60,000,000.

ONE  OF   POINT  GREY'S SCHOOLS Friday, October? 1, 1915;  FAKE CONSUMPTION CURES  (By Philip P. Jacobs, Ph.D.)  ' TPo the drowning man, a stick, I  at straw, or any old piece of wood  looks like a help to save himself  from death. So, to the consumptive, any kind of flimsy statement or any brand of manufactured "patent" medicine appears  to offer a hope of" cure and a  chance  for  life.  Profiting by this ever-living  hope of the consumptive, more  than five hundred different varieties of so-called "cures" for  tuberculosis are now being advertised or sold to the American  people, bringing in an income of  over $15,000.0.00. annually.  You have seen advertised in  the   newspapers'  and magazines  such nostrums .as Dr.   ... . 's  cough cure, guaranteed to "cure  your cough  in  three  days"; or  Prof.  ���������'s   dope,  which  "raised from   the  bias positively  dead hundreds of advanced cases "; or a," cure'' labeled with  some such name as " consumption-  cide," and declared to be "a marvellous preparation of secret  drugs which will kill the bacilli  of consumption in their extent.  Generally speaking, the so-called " cures" for consumption may  be divided into three groups, as  follows:  1. Home-made. Remedies.���������-The  numerous home-made remedies  which, either through ignorance  or superstition, have" been advanced as treatments for tuberculosis,, make up the first class.  In this group are included such  things as onions, lemons, coal dust,  lime dust, pig's blood, dog oil,  milk strippings, teas of various-  kinds, alcohol, raw meat and a  host of others. 'Most of these  cures are advanced by innocent,  well-meaning individuals x^bo  imagine   thatXthey:',have;7cured  ..themselves or someone else with  >' their particular remedies, and,  out of gratitude, they recommend  these ''cures" to others;The remedies in this group are "hot usually advertised Or sold for financial gain. Wherever anyone has  taken the trouble, however, to investigate the "cures" said to have  been brought about by these simple/remedies, he has found one of  two things: (1) either the patient  never had tuberculosis,' or (2)  if he had it, the improvement  attributed to the remedy lasted  but a short time, and the treatment in question had nothing  whatever to do with thev favorable symptoms;  2. Drugs and Nostrums.��������� In  this group are included hundreds  of devices ranging all the way  from an inhaling-tube of some  particular brand to a bottle of  gaudily colored liquid, any of  which may be purchased at a  drug store for prices ranging  from 10 cents to $5 or more. In  this group are found the numer-  ^ou8=^so-called���������"cough���������curesr"  which usually contain a liberal  amount of some' opiate or alcohol. Some of these do not claim  to cure consumption, but state  that  they   will cure   "long-per  sisting cough" or "deep-seated  cough.'r Relying on these assertions, the consumptive, often in  the -beginning of the disease, loses  weeks and months of valuable  time before he consults the doctor. Coughs and colds are not  cured by mixtures of this character. Some of them provide a temporary relief, but frequently the  harm done is very serious and  sometimes permanent. In this  group are included also the patent medicines which are advertised hs positive cures for consumption. An. analysis of a number  of these by the United States  Department of Agriculture, the  American Medical. Association,  and others, shows that they have  no value whatever in the treatment of tuberculosis. It is hot  too much to state emphatically  that you cannot buy from any  druggist in the United. States a  medicine or mixture that will cure  tuberculosis. Such a remedy does  not exist, despite the advertised  lies and seemingly substantiated  claims of the druggist and manufacturer..  .3. "Institutes," "Professors"  and "Doctors."���������The third group  of so-called cures for tuberculosis  includes the numerous " " institutes," "professors," companies  bf "doctors" or similar concerns,  who sell their secret ''remedies'���������'���������  through the mail or by traveling  froin place to place. This group  contains nearly two hundred  concerns who are' cheating the  peojple opt of millions of dollars  every year. The methods: and  claims of most of them are idenr  tical. Their stock in trade consists of a liberal amount of advertising space in newspapers  and cheap magazines; a good  supply of follow-up letters and  circulars; an ordinary mail order office equipment; and, last of  all, something in the form of a  bottled or pill-like concoction. In  makes no difference what the  mixture sold may be. When the  head Of an "institute" in the  west, formerly a bookkeeper, was  arrested for misusing the mails,  in 1912, the government found  that he wias selling tablets made  of rye flour as a cure for tuber  culosis. Any kind of colored li  quid; any mysterious powder, or  any kind of tablet or pill may  be sold as. a cure for tuberculosis, with profit to the maker  The chief asset of the institute or  wily "professor" whose advertisement you have seen in the pa  pers, is not his "medicine," but  his advertising ability.  '' But,'' you will say,'' some of  these companies give testimonials  for their remedies which have  every appearance of being genuine. '' Granted. You may even  write to some of the names signed to the testimonials and have  them verified by the signers. But  -that does not prove the value of  the  "cure"  in question.    It  is  common knowledge with the ven  dors of patent medicines that a  present of a dozen photographs,  ��������� a financial reward of a few dol-  ONB OF VANCOUVER'S SUBURBS���������SHOWING DESIRABLE RESIDENTIAL SITES  Sovereign Radiators  Artistic in design.  Perfect in finish.  Made in Canada.  Taylor Forbes Co.  LIMITED  Vancouver, B. C.  lars, or in some cases even sheer  gratitude for what a patient  thinks has helped him, will produce an unlimited supply of testimonials. Investigation of the  claims of hundreds of testimonials for a large number of con-:  sumption cures has always proved  one of three things: (1) either the  person who signed the testimonial had done so because he was  paid for it; or (2) he never had  tuberculosis at all and only imagined he had been cured; or,  most frequently, (3) that he was  very much, worse or dead as a result of taking the nostrum at the  time the investigation was made.  It is a well known fact in the  treatment of tuberculosis, that  consumptives are most willing to  believe that they' may be cured  by this, that or the other thing.  Consequently, after a patient has  started to take Prof. ���������-������������������  '' treatment,' 'it is easy for him to  imagine that he is being helped.  This period of imaginary relief  may in some cases extend over a  considerable time. It is during  this interval that the clever "professor" secures bis testimonials of  marvelous '' cures'' wrought ��������� by  his remedy. He does not care if  the patient dies within a week after signing the testimonial. He  goes right on using it. Instances  of this can be shown in scores of  cases.  Then, of course, there are the  testimonials manufactured out of  "whole cloth" from the brain of  the advertising manager. As it is  easy to get others, this kind of  testimonial is not used so frequently iii tuberculosis as in other  diseases.  An investigation of the cases of  jrngreLjhanjone^^^hundrecLconsum-,  ptives in a western city who had  been taking a certain widely advertised consumption cure revealed the fact that almost every  one had experienced a temporary  relief, but that in every case the  patient had either become worse  or died in. a short time afterward.  This cure, consisting largely of alcohol and potassium iodid, simply  hid the dangerous symptoms of  the consumptive, as a result of  which he was induced to continue  the treatment and was given a  false sense of security. It is thus  that the valuable time whieh the  consumptive should be spending  in a sanatorium or under a doctor's care, is lost, and he discovers his real condition when it is  too late.

"Our national quality of commercial shrewdness fails us," says  Samuel Hopkins Adams in "the  Great American Fraud," " when  we go into the open market to  purchase relief, from suffering.  The average man when he  sets out to buy a horse, or a box  of cigars, is a model of caution.  Show him testimonials from any  number of prominent citizens and  he would simply scoff. Now observe the same citizen seeking to  buy the most precious of all possessions, sound health. Anybody's  word is good enough for him  here. An admiral -whose puerile  vanity has betrayed him into a  testimonial; any obliging and conscienceless senator; a- grateful  idiot from some remote hamlet;  a.renegade doctor, or a silly woman who gets a bonus of a dozen  photographs for her letter,���������any  of these are sufficient to lure the  hopeful patient to the purchase.  Ke wouldn't buy a second-hand  bicycle on the affidavit of any  of .them,, but he will give up his  dollar and take his chance of  poison on a mere newspaper  Statement which he doesn't even  investigate." 'XV,  You may rest., assured that if.  any one of the concerns who advertise "cures" for tuberculosis  had a real cure, the name of the  discoverer of such a ' remedy  would be known to everyone, and  every government in the world  would do honor to him. But the  National Association for the  Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis, which is the leading  American authority > on this disease, says without hesitation that  no one has as yet discovered any  such specific cure.  Any kind of drug, vacine, or  other combination which seeks to  cure tuberculosis in the human  body must accomplish three  things;-''. "X ' ' ���������'������������������ X'X 'vx  (1) It must destroy the germs  of tuberculosis in the body or it  must find some method of making the body rid itself of these  destructive bacilli.  (2) It must provide for the  healing or restoration of the body  tissues Which have already been  destroyed or injured by the  germs.  (3) It must do these ttvo  things without serious injury to  any organ or parts of the body  not affected by tuberculosis.  Even a superficial examination  of the numerous remedies and  treatments, so widely advertised  by the unscrupulous makers,  shows that not one of them can  accomplish any of these three requisites of a real cure for consumption. '  "The only real cure for consumption, which will do all of the  three things required of it, is the  wellkuown combination of 'fresh  air, rest, wholesome food, and  freedom from worry, all in large  doses, and under competent medical direction.  A sanatorium is the best place  to take this kind of cure. Here  you will find it easy to rest for  hours and days in the open air;  here you will find the proper  kind of food and enough of it;  here you will not be discouraged, because you will find many  others who are living just as you  are; and, finally, here you will  obtain constant and careful medical supervision. Sanatoria do not  give medicines to cure tuberculosis, they prescribe only fresh  air, rest, good food and freedom  from worry.  P.eeause these essentials of a.  real eure are often so easy to attain, and because they cannot be  picked up at once in the hands  and examined as one would-a bottle of medicine, there are many  consumptives who doubt their  value. Yet thousands and hundreds of thousands have been  cured in this way.  A MIDGET MOTOR VEHICLE  During the past two years there  have been various movements to  introduce '������������������_, light-weight     motor-  driven, vehicles  ranging  all the  way from the cyclecar to the motor wheel, but the smallest self-  contained vehicle that   has   yet  been brought out is; the "mon-  auto." This is a complete motorcycle and incorporates a number  of ingenious arrangements.   Tbe  wheels are 14 inches in diameter,  and  the, 2 5-8 Jby  3Xfou*r-cycle  motor  is- rated-tat  21^2   horsepower, which it is claimed is capable of driving the. Vehicle at a  speed of 25 miles ah hour. ���������   The  frame is .decidedly simple, consisting only of. ^length of large-sized  tubing,Xvhieh acta aa aj tank as  well as forming   ar Vyeigr   rigid  frame. The total length of;ithe  machine is 48 inches, with a width  of 9 inches and a height of 18  inches, just about that of an ois  dinary chair.  ���������������������������:���������  '    - i ������������������ :~   .���������''-������������������ ���������  A most original feature of this  midget machine is the simplicity  of its control. The handle bars, besides doing the. steering, have   a  swinging motion forward and  back, and are so connected with  the. throttle and clutch that a  backward movement of the handle bar closes the throttle, throws  out the clutch and applies the  brake, while a forward movement of the bar reverses these  operations. Moreover, the further,  forward Jthe bar is pushed the l  faster the machine will run. These  movements of the bar are instinctively made by the rider,  so that it is claimed that anyone  can safely ride the machine with  no previous experience.  It is apparently not expected  that this machine will appeal to  the pleasure rider as much as to  the busy business man who muat  get around without loss of time;  Its convenience for military' operations is also pointed out, for  its light weight, 45 pounds, allows of its being picked up and  carried over when a stream or  other obstacle is to be crossed.  This light weight also permits it  to be readily carried into    the  house,   instead    of    having   to  leave it standing in  the street,  while its compact size enables it  to ba stored most anywhere.

ALEXIS CARREL, the famous French surgeon, who created such a tremendous sensation in the medical world by his extraordinary  work in transplanting tissues, blood vessels, and  nerves, at the Rockefeller Institute, is now just  behind the firing lines in northern France, continuing his remarkable experiments. His opportunity is probably the most unusual any worker  in surgical research has ever had, for the great  battlefields themselves are in reality his laboratories.

The French government has provided a hotel  at Compeigne as a hospital; administrative officers, and surgeons selected by Dr. Carrel himself, for the institution, carry on the regular  work, thus .leaving Dr. Carrol in a position to  devote,his full time to making his wonderful  experiments, and to furthering the work that  will not only be of practical value to the  wounded soldiers of today, but will be of tremendous value to all generations to come. The  importance of this may be seen when it is considered that although most of the ablest surgeons in France are working at the military  hospital they do not know whether their patients recover, and so they learn but little new.  One important result already obtained is the discovery of what Dr. Carrel and Dr. Dakin of. the  Lister Institute, who works with Dr. Carrel, call  the ideal surgical antiseptic.  To further Dr. Carrel's work in this connection, the Rockefeller foundation has sent Red  Cross nurses, and a staff of bacteriologists and  chemists. Thus, in northern France* as in Belgium) American finance is working for humanity.  The French authorities have stopped excursions to the front, a dangerous jpastime for all  concerned.

When this reaching has been from one ria-  tipn to another, tariff walls have been raised;  but there, ~while they have constituted a cpn-  | siderable defense for the nations of inferior productive strength, have by no means solved the  problem. For instance, producers of the United  States sold in Canada during the fiscal year ending March 31, ��������� 1914, goods to the value of over  $425,000,000, while Canadian producers sold in  the United States goods to the value of a little  over $200,000,000. Considering the great difference in the number of people in these two nations, this is an excellent showing for Canada;  but the fact remains that the Canadian people  have paid to United States producers over twice  as much money as the people of the United  States have paid to Canadian producers. It is  true, of. course* that we of Canada have received useful or necessary commodities for the  ^$200,00_0,OPJftjiv.hich_has.beeiwsent-across-theVin^-  ' ternationatl boundary in excess of the money  which has come across the line. But the question arises as to whether, if we had kept this  money for our own producers and the development of Canadian production, we would not  have had, by this time, both the money and practically all of the really necessary goods. However, this consideration opens up the whole question of protection or free traded which, cannot  be discussed here. It has been mentioned only  to show that even high tariff walls are not sufficient to protect the productive activities of any  part of the world reached by steam transportation against the encroachments of similar activities elsewhere.  ^And within a nation there is not even this  protection for little industries against big ones.  Yet it may be very decidedly to the advantage  of the community in which these little industries  are striving to develop, to have them protected.  Their pay rolls are highly the general business of the community.    They increase  population  and prosperity.     So  it is that  in  many sections, as well as in some nations,-we see  movements to build up in the minds of consumers  '' a wall against articles produced at' a distance'  which compete with the products of the home  manufacturers or. other' producers;    ' Germany, "  now war-mad, but undoubtedly very sane in the  matter   of   industrial   development,   started a  movement of this kind for German goods-nearly a quarter of a century ago, and, judging from  the aggressive way it has been continued, has .  found it extremely useful.    A number of years  ago Lady Aberdeen and others became" active"  in Ireland along similar lines, and this work is  said to have been ah important factor in bringing to Ireland a new era of prosperity. Australia aims to be as "self-contained" as, possible, .  ��������� that is, to keep her markets for her own products.     Japan  encourages the  importation : of  articles only until her own manufacturers have  Vjearned to make such articles.     Within a few  Vdayst&c Vancouver newspapers have announced  tifiateyeh  China is now sufficiently awake to  'jiegin^tp "talk about Chinese goods for the Chinese. A;^Made in America" movement is taking  - a- strong hold in the United States, and in numerous States, especially in the new 'industrial  sections of the West, there are organizations of  consumers to protect their local industries  against the aggressions of the^ much older and  stronger industries in the east.  k,..J. In British Columbia, a few months ago, a  movement for protecting the home market for  home producers was started, and it has gained  much publicity and endorsement. Mr. W. ;E.  Scott, Deputy Minister of. Agriculture, addressed a meeting of the British Columbia Consumers'  League, which is behind the movement, and in-.  , formed his bearers that $25,000,000 a year was  sent out of British Columbia for agricultural products, and that $22,000,000 of this was for articles such as are grown here, in other words, this  $22,000,000 a year might be kept in local circula-  ��������� tion.' ...    VV;.... V ;'V..  ��������� .������������������ 'vX  It is estimated that at least $20,000,000 a year  leaves the province, for manufactured goods of  kinds made here.X This makes a total of oveir  $40)000,000 a year whiehivtbeor^ically, might be  retained in our own channels 'blEfcirculation, but  which is sent away.' v Theoryand practice are,  of course, quite different, but there, is no doubt  that a very substantial part of this great sum  could be held here- if> consumers and retailers  would make a general practice of giving the preference to B. C. articles in all cases where these -  met outside competition; in quality and price.  f      The British Columbia Consumers' League is  endeavoring to arouse consumers and retailers  to give this payrolls^ more employment andrii6re':;  prosperity in the province.    It has been announced by the League that they have the signatures of over five thousand persons to pledges'  tc give the preference, price and quality being  equal, to B. C; products, and expect to have ten-=  thousand such signatures before the end of this-;  year.    The aim is to keep these consumers con-'  stantly reminded of. their pledge, and^the import-.;  ahce of living up to- it, by means' of newspaper'  and  other  forms Jot puWicit*f. ; vTbrbugh the;  women's institutes-^farraers'-institutes, agricul- i  tural and fruit growers'associations, the^^ movement has been made;'prpyince-wide> and manufacturers and fruit growers are finding that the I  attitude toward B- C. products has become, since  spring, more favorable than ever before.

Editor Western Call:  In a recent letter to the Province I maintained that the tobacco habit was essentially, bad  and the use of cigarettes indefensible; that the slaves to^the  habit at the front could get/-all  tbey craved; and that the effort  to send them large gifts of "the  weed" was by no means the best  way to help them..Notwithstand*-  ing the fact of considerable conf-  ment, I had decided not to say  more; I have never taken tmy  stand as a public anti-tobacconist,  and, besides, not one of the above  views has been seriously challenged. But, having put my  the plow* I come just once again.  In the strictures made, the only  thing that really hurt was that  what I said about my son, naturally expressed in as strong language as I could stand by���������and'1  do stand by it���������-should have been  so much exaggerated in referring  to it. But most people will see  through that,''so'.-1 leave it with a  quotation from a recent lay co-respondent to the Montreal Witness: "It is^wearing on the nerves  of those whose boys have gone  forward from homes where tobacco has been discountenanced  to think that, if spared to return,  they are likely to have acquired  a lifelong habit of indulgence in  this which is both disgusting and  degrading." ^  The suggestion that there is no  " 'backy" store at the firing-line  is, I presume, top transparently  thin to catch any but the most  unwary; there are no meat shops  either, but fancy Tommy Atkins  going without beef!  As to the "comfort" derived  from their "smokes" by those  who cannot easily shake off the  desire���������generally admitted to be  thoughtlessly acquired when  boys���������there is no doubt; and nobody, perhaps, would try to reform them in the trenches ���������  though many a man there would  find "comfort" also in. daily  draughts of whiskey, and some  declare that to be the thing they  valued most. Suppose somebody  start a Soldiers' Whiskey Fund?  We are told that the Province  tobacco fund is part of a large  movement arranged by the British Overseas Club, through the  medium and with the assistance  of a score or more of the leading  newspapers of the' Empire."  Surely/if the number of such papers were a hundred, or even not  extra-Canadian, that - would furnish absolutely no reason for taking up a cause that cannot stand  on its own merits.  :;;At .the very best, tobacco is a  luxury, and this is certainly no  times for luxuries���������at least for  us at home. If the soldiers must  have it free, then, as a lady has  suggested, let the home users  quit���������"during the war" ��������� and  send the packages ordinarily purchased for themselves to the  front. So the home chocolate-users, might now well send their  chocolates away,.an'd the joy-riders the money usually spent on  their, rides; so that even the good  may not be enemy of the best.  And what is the best? For a  long while past, and I think  eyen. now,- the' plain, commonplace thing called socks. And I  must say that I feel a thrill of  pride in and admiration for those  women and girls who, in street  cars, at public functions) and on  every, possible occasion are seen  plying the knitfeng needle. Let  me suggest thftt we men also  learn to knit, the better to fill in  the time we have to engage our  fellows in periods of- conversation  and allowVmore of the women to  turn their attention to various  other common but indispensable  articles of wear and covering  which require knowledge too expert foi* us, and are soon to be  in pressing demand. Many a man  unemployed at home, or V who  never reads even a newspaper  while in the^ street car,; could do  fine work with the gray yarn in  either place. At any rate, if, as  seems probable, we have to face  another European winter campaign, it will certainly tax our  resources to the very utmost to  meet the need and suffering, far  and near, and that should bring  our economy and efficiency to the  finest of fine arts, and lead everybody to "do his bit. "Not gerat  giving only, but the most heroic  giving up. The latter in order to  the former.  Yours truly*  VTM. ELLIOTT.  Sept. 29, 1915.  CORRESPONDENCE  Editor Western  Call:  I have read with interest-the  remarks made by the Rev. Ernest Thomas on the "Crisis in B.  C," in your last issue. He sums  up exactly what myself and others have .thought. I have been  here for five years and 'have  heard many sermons preached,  but not one raised in condemna^  tion of the gambling spirit.' We  call this a holy war, and yet we:  find fortune wheels in shop windows and raffling taking place  for patriotic movements; and we  call on "the Lord to help us."  Nothing -but mockery, I reply.  Religion can prevent crisis, but  the clarion note has to be Sounded not from pamphlets, but' from  the living word. We too. often  hear subjects preached apart  from. Bible narratives, and "the  seed is sown only on the rocks."  J believe that far more good could  be realized tio preach on the  streets of this or any other city  where men, are not only rejects  ing an earthly king,,but the;  "King of Kings" J than to talk-  in some hall to a large audience  in another district.  R. JAMES*  .P. 0. Box 176.  ; Vancouver; B. CX  KIER HARDIE DEAD  Great industrial concerns are  forwarding a vast business*war  on alcohol.  James Keir Hardie died from  pneumonia'in a nursery at; Glasgow on Sunday. He was a labor  member in parliament and the  leader of the peace element in the  British Socialist Party. J V  The death of. James Keir:Harn  die has removed a picturesque  figure, a unique; personality from  British public life. In this time  Of war, when ��������� British sentiment  is in favor of beating the en-;  emy���������to use Roosevelt's expression, "to a frazzle"���������the'leader  of the peace element' in the Socialist party was looked upon by  the patriotic Briton as "a bold,  bad man"���������but Kier Hardie had  talent, courage,'a force of home  ly, vigorous expression and some  rugged virtue.'He will "be missed"���������and one is inclined, to say  we could "have better spared a  better man." James Keir Hardie,  while chairman of the1 Independent Labor Party, did, some excellent work. His. proposals were not  always practical, but his' manner of advocating them, the ar-  guments he put 'forward, sometimes made the people "furiously for to think "-r-^and the result"  was the achievement, not of fulfilment of his wild schemes, out  a compromise which meant very  tangible reform. It was to his  credit that Keir'Hardie ��������� the  " James"Q was always'dropped���������  attained the, honorable ambition  of. a British M. P., for he was  handicapped by what Bulwer  Lytton called "low birth and  iron fortune." He was the son  of Scotch working-class parents.  He ' worked in the mines from  his seventh "to his twenty-fourth  year, and the,education he had���������  the, knowledge he acquired���������and  he knew much of n\ent women,  books and events���������was the result of hard. study and much  burning of the midnight oil. He  was even at a time when his services could have commanded ample;financial remuneration a man  of v<ery simple tastes. For years  he ��������� lived in a little old world  icourt-^-Neyills Court, Fleet street  '^ahit of rural London still existing near the turmoil of Fleet  street, and there with his piles  of books, his flowers and his canary, he /would discuss the meaning of a line in a sonnet with  apparently more relish than he  denounced the power and expense of royalty and the aristocracy or "the wrongs of labor."  Kier Hardie was elected M. P.  for Merthyr Tydyil in 1900. His  furry capX-the only head-gear of  its kind in the House of Commons  ���������wa$, like the pea-jacket of  John Burns, an innovation, at  first resented, then tolerated, ahd  afterwards imitated by those who  liked " comfort.'' Kier Hardie  held many official positions in the  labor party. He was a power in  labor journalism. He fought many  gpod political fights in places like  Mid-Lanard and S. W. Ham (the.  latter a London constituency)'  and- his social work for temperance, etc.,-was of perhaps more  value, than his political propaganda. His visit' to India created  some adverse comment, but he  was credited by many with good  intentions, although his methods  were condemned. He founded the  Labor Leader, he wrote much  Worth reading. He loved books  and it will be surprising if his  industry in,collecting old ballads  and chap books has not caused  bim to leave behind a collection  -��������� j  "What Fine Bread!

What they  have been unable to accomplish  'themselves, the war has done for  them. In the years 1913 and 1914  the totals of aliens admitted to  the United States were 1,427,227  and 1,403,081 respectively, and  the gains in; alien -population, after deducting the numbers of  those who returned to Europe; or  elsewhere, were 815;303 and 769,-  276. The increase in alien population in the course of the immigration year which ended June .30th  was 50,070. The number of aliens  who were admitted was 434,244,  while the number who left was  384.174. The most drastic restrictive legislation, could not have  cut down the flow as the war has  done. X  ^ ^Netnrmly "has" tbexvaf"fulfilled  the desires of the restrictionists  in respect to * a wholesale reduction in numbers, but also in respect to the racial character of  the immigrants. The restrictionists have argued that those from  central and southern Europe were  undesirable because they were  not closely allied in blood with  the original settlers of the country, and because their political  institutions and social habits were  different. One of. the results of  the war has been that the majority in 1914-1915 came from  the countries fronting on the  North Sea and the Atlantic  ocean. Of the large number who  went borne, in many cases to join  the colors of their respective  countries, by far the larger proportion were of the class of so-  called undesirable nationalities.  The period of reduced immigration is likely to continue more  than a year, and the indications  are that it may last for three or  four years. It is not generally believed that peace ^will be concluded within a year. Following the  war there will be much constructive work to be done in' all parts  of-Europe. It can be said with  'confidence that the countries now  at war, or which become involved, will hot encourage emigration.  Some of them, oh the other hand,  will do what "they* can to discourage it. This will l)e particularly  true of lands where industry hhs  been built up on' a considerable;  scale. Some governments will not,'  of course, be in so good a position to interfere *s others, owing1  to the freedom of movement guaranteed by the * laws or customs/  MOK!  QCCQ  Fighting for the salvation of the  Fatherland stimulates patriotic  feeling. Poubtless this will play  some part in retarding emigration.' X X -X .  It is .evident, also, that the war  is rapidly depleting the ranks of  those who emigrate. These are the  men under forty-five years of age.  The stupendous casualty lists suggest that there will be many in  thisVclass-who^-because-of physical or mental disabilities, will be  unable to meet tbe requirements  of our immigration law regarding capacity to earn a livelihood*  and mental soundness.  With a much smaller immigration we shall have ah opportunity  to study the social and economic  effects of restriction without committing ourselves to the policy.  We have knowledge based on experience of the results of a large  immigration. By permitting proposed legislation to lie upon the  table for a while we shall be enabled to decide upon our future  policy with greater knowledge at  our command.���������Scientific American.

There's a "story  now  current,   though  strange it may seem,  Of the great Kaiser Bill, and a wonderful dream,  Being tired pf the Allies, he lay down  in bed,  And, amongst other things, he dreamt  he  was  dead,  And in a fine coffin was lying in state,  With a  guard of brave Belgians who  mourned for his fate, _  He wasn't long dead till he found to  his   cost,  That his soul, like his soldiers, would  ere long be lost.  /  On leaving this earth,  to 'heaven   he  wont straight,  Arriving up there,"gave a knock at the  gato,  But   St.  Peter looked   out,  and,  in   a  voice loud and  clear,  Said, "Begone, Kaiser Bill, we don't  want you he-re,"  "Well," said the Kaiser, "that's rather uncivil,"  So   he  turued  on  his  heel and  away  he   did go  At the top of his speed to the regions  below, ���������  But  when he got  there ho  was  filled  with dismay,  For, while  waiting  outside,  ho  heard  Old Nick say  To his imps, ".Now, look here, boys, I  give you. all warning,   ��������� ���������  I'm   expecting  the   Kaiser down here  in   the   morning;  But  don't  let him in,  for to  me it's  .  quite clear  He's a very bad man, and we don't  want   him here.  If once re gets in there'll be no end  of quarrels,  In  fact, I'm afraid he'll  corrupt our  good  morals."  "Oh, Satan, dear friend," the SKaiser  then cried,  "Excuse me for listening while waiting outside;  If   you don't   admit   me,   say,   where  can I go?"  "Indeed," said the   Devil,  "I   really  don't know."  '' Oh, do let me in, I am feeling quite  cold,  And if you want money, I've  plenty  of gold,  "No, no," said the Devil, "most certainly not.  We don't admit folks here for riches  or pelf,  Here are sulphur and  matches, make  a hell for yourself."  Then he kicked Wilhelm out,  and  he  vanished in smoke,  And  just at  that moment the Kaiser  awoke,  He jumped out of bed in a shivering  sweat, -  And said, "Well,   that's   a dream   I  shall never forget,  That  I won't go to  heaven I  know  very well,'  But it's really too bad to be kicked  out of hell.

TIRES WORTH $260,000,000  According to the manufacturing plans of the thirty large rubber-tire companies in the United  States, their 0-rftput during the  present calendar year will exceed  11,000,000 tires, of an average  value of $20 at retail: The remaining smaller "companies, supplying  local-trade-onlyp produce about  about 1,000,000 tires in twelve  .months, worth $18 to $22 a piece.  The total value of tires used in  1915, including solid tires for  trucks, tires for buses and taxi-  cabs, amount therefore to $250,-  000,000 in round numbers. To this  sum should be added about 200,-  000 motorcycle tires, worth from  $5 to $10 each.  RADIUM IN SEA WATER  JINGLE POT  COAL  "LASTS LONGER"  Let us put in your winter's supply.

Heretofore, American manufacturers have been too busy in the  home market to bother about establishing a market for their  tires in Asia and Australia,, and  unless steps are taken along  these lines in the immediate future* they will find the market  pre-empted by the Japanese. Japan imported about 2,500,000 lbs.  of rubber in 1913 and 1914, while  in the previous years only about  2,000,000 lbs. were used annually.

Lloyd, of the  University of Alabama, has recently published the results of an  examination for radium of a sample of. water obtained in the Gulf  of Mexico, about 200 miles south  of Mobile, and has given in this  connection a resume of the re  suits obtained by other inves  tigators in measuring the ra  dium content of sea water.  The writer explains that the  growing recognition of radium as  an important factor in geological processes has led to many  analyses of rocks, soils* springs  and river waters for that cle  ment, while our greatest reser  voir of radium; the ocean, lias received but little attention. Joly,  who examined samples from several oceans and seas, obtained a  value for the radium content so  high that it cannot be reconciled with the values obtained by  Eye and Satterly for the North  Atlantic, and Lloyd for the Gulf  of Mexico. Excluding Joly's results, the.-'author finds the average to be 1.2x10.12 gramme of  radium per litor of sea water,  whieh would make the total radium content of the ocean about  1,400 tons. ���������;..:..-..:  printing is more  able to-day than ever,  because business men  are on the alert to  tect the slightest ii  cation of unfavorable  conditions, and for  this very reason every  suggestion of strength  and progress is doubly effective.

The  Nationals, of Montreal,, won the  eastern title in the second game  in Toronto on Saturday last. The  second game resulted iij a win  for the Toronto team* but as the  majority of goals were to count,  the" honors went to the Montreal  team. The-score in Toronto was  ]0 to 7, but the score the previous game was 16 to 10, so that  the Frenchmen won out. Presi-,  dent Caron, of the Nationals, is  reported as saying, "For many  years the Nationals have been represented by a strong team in the  highest lacrosse circles of the  east, but never by one the equal  of the team which has just: won  the championship. I believe the  time is auspicious to bring the  world's championship back to the  east; and I expect to take the  team west to play off for the title with New Westminster as soon  as proper arrangements can be  made." Well, old boy, come  right along, and hurry.  ������   * -*  Since the above announcement  the Minto cup holders have been  brushing up a bit in expectation.  A mid-week report had it that the  easterners wanted the games plaiy-  ed in Vancouver under eastern  officials. Just imagine the Royals standing for that.   However,  there is one thing to be said in  favor of eastern officials. We  have not seen any eastern official  perform for some time, but certainly they would not have a hard  job putting up a better showing  than some of tbe men who have  handled the games on the coast  in recent years. When Joe Lally  was out this way officiating at a  Minto cup game* there was some  real refereeing, but, alas, there is  no chance for Joe coming, he is in  bad with the coast fans just now.  The other proposition of playing  the games in Vancouver would be  welcomed by Vancouveritesj and  it would certainly be in favor of  the easterners if the games were  staged here. To either of these  proposals, however, the Royals  are most assuredly to turn the  deaf ear. After all, they prize  the silverware over there more  than the dollars (so,-it seems),  but one never can tell what the  managers of the teams might arrange in the form of a Minto  cup series. One thing is sure, the  games in Westminster will not  be largely patronized. Any team  which can pull down only a gate  of a few dollars in mid-season  form, "will hardiy do very much  better in a post-season' series.  ���������   ���������   ���������  - From the standpoint of-finances,  then it would be in the interests  of New Westminster to stage the  A Safe Investment���������B0NDS  ".No safer form of investment can he suggested than Canadian  Government and Municipal Debentures.

Money is tight,  and the .enthusiasm of the fans  seems to be wavering just how.  The affairs of the empire are having their effect on the sporting  enthusiasm of Victorians* and on  that account Manager Patrick is  considering the advisability of  staying out of the league until  the war is over. Vancouver and  Portland are sure starters, however, and "with the rapid construction being made on the Seattle rink, there is sure to be a,  three-team circuit. No doubt the  fans of Victoria will wake up a  little between now and hockey  season, and in that case there will  be a four-team league, something  to be desired to keep  the game going. War time and all  we like the game too much to see  it dropped. Let the single men  line up- for the front, but there  are plenty of married men who  have abundance of hockey ability in them yet for a few seasons.  ��������� *   ���������  National Biscuits won the Taylor cup oh Saturday last when  they defeated Snider & Brethour  in the second game of the series,  the score being 6 runs to 5.

Already this year they have suffered defeat on two occasions at  home, - which seems to spell the  beginning of the end. The men  from the railway town are growing old in the game, regular  "moss-backs some of,them, so it  is really time youth and speed  was .asserting itself in soccer circles. With the Coquitlam team  it is only the inevitable..  ��������� ���������   *  Lovers of the fistic art are  whining in many quarters over  the Gibbons-McFarland fiasco in  New York a few weeks ago. The  fight game in the United States  is very much like all other games  the Yankees play, faked, in large  letters. What the American people seem to need inside and outside as a nation is a good coat of  "sincerity." Well applied in the  homes, and the schools and all  over the republic, it should have  a- salutary effect on the methods  used in promoting ventures such  as the one above noted. Here we  have a case of two scientific boxr  ersigoing- ten,rounds no-decision  for the sum of approximately  $20,000 apiece. No wonder ithe  fans were sore at the affair, it  seems to be a shame to take the  money, but to use one of their  own street phrases, "We should  worry."  "���������������������������.���������** .-**���������"**  '.*���������-'  Listen to this from Detroit:  "Bat Nelson is out gunning for  Freddie Welsh and the lightweight title. Ever since the proposed bout between the two was  stopped by officials at Havana,  Bat says he's been on .the champion's heels, but says he can get  no satisfaction from the belt holder.' Just let Nelson or any of  the other Yankee lightweight get  inside the ropes with Welsh and  they will get all the satisfaction  that is coming to them.  ���������   ������   ���������  The league race in the baseball  series is drawing close to the  finish. Philadelphia have the National league cinched now, and  Boston has practically the same  with the American league. And  then will come the test. We  in Canada haye always taken a  keen interest in the world's series in baseball, and this year will  be no exception. We see fit to  play the national game of the  nation to the south, and why  shouldn't we be interested. Thus  it is an even bet who will win.  Philadelphia, depends entirely on  their one man. Alexander* the  greatest pitcher in the game today, so they say. He is the one  best bet of the Quakers, and if  he fails the chances are cut 50  per cent. The Boston team has  been through a world's series already, two years ago against New  York, and many of the members  of that team are still with the  Red Sox. Our point of view leads  us to overwhelmingly favor the  Boston team. They have four  great pitchers, and a splendid infield. What more do they need?  The hitting ability of the Philadelphia team is not outstanding,  and they will have difficulty getting the sphere into centre field.  However, the dope seldom proves  true.

Another tragedy occurred. in  the Capilano river on Sunday,  when Mr. Frederick West, of  Brockton Point, Stanley Park,  met his death.  The accident happened in Salmon pool, a deep hole in Second Canyon, about three hundred yards below the wooden  bridge.  The deceased, his wife and Miss  Edith Smith came up to spend  the day fishing. Mrs. West, in  some manner lost her footing at  the edge of the pool and fell in.  Without a moment's hesitation  the husband jumped in, and it is  thought he took a cramp, for he  was a good swimmer. In the  meantime his wife had gained  the rocks and got out. In the excitement of the moment Mr. West  was not noticed sinking and the  first realization of the fatality  was the sight of his body lying  on the bottom of the pool. It was  clearly discernable through the  clear water. Assistance was summoned quickly and a Mr. Miller  and Mr. Rand succeeded in getting the body out on the rocks  oh the west side of the creek.  By this time, however, life was  extinct. Chief Lifton, who was  notified, took charge of the  remains until Monday when the  inquest ,was held.  Deceased was about 30 years pf  age, was born in Moodyville, and  was a longshoreman.   I   RALLY PAY J3E&VJ0ES  Rally Day services were held in  connection with the churches in  Mt.

Suspicions are often worse than j  facts.  A good cook should be at the  head of every provisional government.  A man is apt to feel girlish]  when he  is making  his  maider  speech.

Five thousand German prisoners of war on an island near  Auckland, Australia, need little  guarding, because the waters in  the neighborhood are alive with  big man-eating sharks.
