Wilfrid Laurier is now 4aking the position that the government ought to lower the tariff  ���������because there is a fifty-million dollar surplus.  The money, he argues, ought to go back into the *  pockets of the people' through a reduction of the  duties.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier has a convenient memory,  or rather a convenient:forgetfulhesB. He and  his party were in office for fifteen years, coming  in as free traders and staying in as protectionists.  Did they reduce the tariff f They increased it in  some notable instances���������that-of cement for one.  Gould they have reduced itt With Sir Wilfrid's  own argument as a basis, they could havi done  so. Here is what the Montreal Telegraph says,  in announcing the advent of its new editor, Hon.  W. S. Fielding:-���������  - "Mr. Fielding hsd the distortion unique in  Canadian histon^ of introducing the budget for  sixteen successive years, in each of which, excepting the first after he took office, he was able  to report a surplus.''  Fifteen Obance*.  Here were no less than fifteen opportunities  for the appUcation of the arfument .wWolv Sir  Wilfrid Laurier finds it conyemeht^li^tf now  that he is no longer responsible for the administration of the country's finances.  On hthalf oftha Wrttof ^wlqr ������f Vwrnvtr  snd tor awfowi ON* %% OfiJfW? Wt Jtar to  Call Vow attention to tht following Facts:  Vancouver business houses are purchasing  annually from Eastern printers more than $750,-  000 worth of printed matter. Vet the printing  plants of this city are fully capable, with probably one or two exceptions, of producing, at a  reasonable cost* "everything" that is mad* for  Vancouver business firms by Eastern printers.  There is, therefore, no real excuse for buying  printing outside of Vancouver. Aside from patriotic motives of loyalty UxVancouver's industries,  the business men of the city have a narrow view  of the subject if they believe they gain hy sending printing orders to the East.  The removal of $750,000 cash each year from  this city represents an actual loss, because there  is no exchange of trade on the part of the Eastern  printers with Vancouver stores or factories.  How many Vancouver stores can say they  receive orders from Eastern printers or their employees?  The vital point of tbis subject is: If Vancouver business men have "all" their printing  done in Vancouver, 525 "more workmen" would  be needed by local printing plants to turn out the  work.  Five hundred and fifty-five extra employees  in the printing trades would spend their wages of  $490,000 a year with Vancouver firms. The printing plants would be put to other expense that  would total at least $225,000���������all representing  just that much more business for Vancouver  mercantile and manufacturing concerns.  Population would eventually be increased  1,875 by the coming to Vancouver of printing  trades workers with their, families.  This is a big thing���������big enough to enlist the  aid of the biggest men of the city. Because it  means the same result, it is surely of as much importance as the endeavor to bring 1,875 more  people to Vancouver; it would be the same if you  brought to Vancouver "a factory employing 525  workmen of the highest type"���������a factory whose  "payroll" would amount to $490,000 "a year,"  with additional "Vancouver expenditures of  $225,000 a year."  We are convinced that the spirit and work  you, as business men, would put into an effort to  secure such a large factory for Vancouver could  be consistently exercised in this case. ,  Three-quarters of a million dollars spent in  paying for "Vancouver printing" is returned to  Vancouver business houses in natural exchange.  Thi-fee-quarters of a million dollars spent in paying for "Eastern" printing is three-quarters of  a million taken out of Vancouver's "pockets and  never seen again.  We urge upon all public-spirited organizations  in the city to formulate ways and means of taking  definite steps to concentrate attention upon this  problem of bringing Vancouver business men to a  A Doubtful Triumph  From many lips we hear expressions Of satisfaction that in the heavy sentences given the striking miners at Nanaimo justice has triumphed, and that law,  order and good government have been vindicated.  Is this really so? or, is it not simply another pitiful illustration of the total  inadequacy of our laws dealing with labor and industrial disputes 1*  Who is there in this Province that really understands the dispute in tbe coal  district of Vancouver Island? Who is able fo say, with authority, what ^ere the  causes of the trouble? Has there ever been a toal serious attempt to find out what  was the cause? We answer, without hesitancy, no serious and impartial effort has  yet been made to find the teal cause. Our Urars are inefficient, but, in spite of them,  more night have been done. *'  >  . Public opinion has been led to condemn the men with only one side of the  question before them. Never has there been a dispute of such magnitude where  the men's side of the question has been so effectually smothered.  We shall not criticise Judge Howey for passing such severe sentences. He is  one of British Columbia's most respected Judges; nevertheless, we do affirm that  the great problem of ^Capital and Labor^ Im besome more complicated as a  result These men have done wrong (some at least), of that there can he no doubt,  but are they more guilty than the maimgep opji mine who refused, three times, to  meet a committee of his own employees, not one of whom was a paid official of the  union, bidworking^ett.    ���������;  * In our estimation atiy employer who Refuses to meet a committee of his: employees is guilty of a more serious offence Man even rioting. Why should he bo  passed and they sentenced, is the question rankling in the minds, of these men.  Ohlyoneanswer can b^ giyen-^there exists no legal machinery whereby he may be  , apprehended*  No, law sand Wer Has not been vindici^eck justice has not triumphed; nor  may we trutwdlysay suet is tiie case until a|ree and impartial opportunity has  been giveti 4q w*e presentation of the other s*4g of the question- Whatever foe  result wh*t^ impart&ibv&^faio should he made, and  M Who IVUKes the Crimiimis?"  Considerable interest is being expressed in  these days in criminology and many plans, more  or less appropriate, have been suggested to deal  with the problem. It might be well, however,  to pause and ask:   "Who makes the criminal?"  The following pertinent .editorial was published  in the St. Louis Star, a big daily of that city, on  July 28th last, and is very much to the point, \  meriting most careful perusal:  What is CHIME? Who are tiie CRIMINALS?  Who makes the criminals?  ypo criminals viciously and voluntarily arise  among us, eager to lead hunted lives, eager to  be jailed at intervals, eager to crawl in the  dark, dodge policemen, work in stripes and  die in shame?

He says if Home Rule should pass as it  is prepared, and if Ulster will not how to the.  new act, be, Mr, Asquith, will call ont the tol-  diers.  Now I would suggest that any man mating  venture to stir up the British Army to fores a  people to join submissively in supporting an act  that is intended to break up the Empire, and to  separate therefrom finally and totally the Enter*  Isle, should read the following impressive docu*  ment. ;.������������������  liord Wolseley gave the Empire warning a* follows: ''The general belief in the North is that  our troops, if ordered to fire upon the men who  will meet them with shouts of "God save the  Queen," will fire over tbem. However, what I  wish you to realize is that Ulster men mean to  fight. I avoid going North myself, and unleas  things quiet down very much, I shall not inspect  the troops in Ulster this year. If ever our troop*  are brought into collision with the loyalists of  Ulster and blood is shed, it will shake the whole  foundations upon which our army rests to such  an extent, that I feel our army will never be  the same again. MANY OFFICERS WILL RESIGN TO JOIN ULSTER, and there will be such  a host of retired officers in the Ulster ranks, that  men who would stand by the government, no  matter what it did, will be worse than halfhearted in all they do." These are very plain  and significant words from one of our bravest,  most loyal and experienced generals and public-  spirited men. He uttered the above in 1893, when  Commander-in-Chief in Ireland. Comment is not  needed. But the noble lord gave utterance to  only a tithe of the tremendous realities underlying  any attempt to force obedience from a people  who are determined to remain loyal to the Empire,  even if forced to fight the troops of tbat Empire,'  in order to remain within the folds of the Union  Jack, and by the Throne of King George.  There are millions in Canada, and tens of millions in* the Empire outside of Ireland, who would  defy any and all governments and send aid of  every valuable sort to support the brave and  loyal Ulsterites in their determination to uphold  the British throne, and remain within the folds  of the Union Jack.  '3*S  amm  ***���������;  SIR. MALCOLM MATHESONS QUESTION.  The questions asked by Mr. Matheson can be  answered only by those who are in charge of the  books of the company. I am sorry I am unable  offhand to give the desired information. A few  easier questions I may be able to answer, and if  so. I should be pleased.  There is a phase of the "overloading" which  might be considered with profit. It is this. Personally I would prefer to stand on my way home  to standing on the street, getting no further forward. Any system of increasing the car* on the  one hand and the limiting of occupants on the  other, cannot prevent either crowding on the  cars, or standing on the streets rather longer-  than would be comfortable. This I witnessed in  many cities where there are very stringent laws  for the regulation of tram traffic. - A fair average  is all that can be accomplished at any time.

Miss Dedrick leaves in a few weeks  for her home in New York, where  she will spend Christmas.  At a crowded meeting of Ward IV  ratepayers, held on the evening of  the 23rd inst.. at the school at the  corner of First Avenue, emphatic approval was given to the proposed improvements in the way of the acquisition of a right-of-way from the B.C.  E.j^. Company on Venables Street,  in opposition to the alternative plan  of Prior Street, the first plans being likely to cost $77,427, while the  Prior Street scheme worked out at  $178,054, or double the cost.  The resolution which carried was  an amendment to the original motion,  moved by ex-Alderman King and  seconded by Alderman MeSpadden,  to the effect that disapproval be expressed to giving any portion of  Prior Street to the B.GE.R. Company in an exchange for an easement  on Venerables Street. None voted  against the amendment only the mover and seconder for the original motion.  B.C.E.R. Company's Assume*.  Alderman Evans explained his proposition to open up Venerables Street  from Glen Drive to Campbell Avenue.  After taking up the matter with the  B.C.E.R. Company, who assured him  that if the proposal went through  they would double-track Prior Street  through to Main Street, the alderman stated that, at the present time,  all the traffic went through Vernon  Drive to Pender and other streets,  whereas the alterations would draw  the traffic along to' Campbell Avenue.  The city engineer's estimate of the  cost of the alternative schemes is as  follows: Venables Street, total cost  $97,910, made up of $37,986 for opening street, $56,375 pavement, and  $3,251 sidewalk. The ratepayers'  cost would be $77,427, the cost, per  foot frontage being $23.21. For Prior  Street, the total cost would be $178,-  054, made up of $104,942 for opening  street, $69,563 pavement, and $3,549  sidewalk. The cost to the ratepayers  would be $155,585, the cost per foot  frontage being $37.20. The figures,  said Alderman Evans, showed that  the Venables Street plan was much  more feasible.  Alderman MeSpadden'* Proposal.  Aid. MeSpadden held that the Venables Street property was already  subject to a first mortgage in the  way of the bonds of the B.C.E.R.  Company, and, therefore, it would be  most unsatisfactory for the people to  endeavor to deal with it at all. As he  saw the question, the B.C.E.R. Company did not own the space between  Glen Drive and Campbell Avenue,  but only had the use of a portion of  it. In six years' time the franchise  of the company would run out, at  which time the city could do as it  wished. By agreeing to the VJenables  Street plan they would be deepening  the company's property, and would  block Prior Street.  His proposition would be to purchase the necessary lots, then they  would own their own street and have  a direct route right into the. Union  Station. If they closed the end of  Prior Street they would have action  for damages.  Alderman Evans was sure that the  B.C.E.R. Company would not give an  easement to the city if the same were  mortgaged; neither, he said, would  the city be able to buy the lots Alderman MeSpadden had referred to, because the owners wanted them for  other purposes.  The amendment as carried made it  a condition that the B.C.E.R. Company be. required to agree to lay  double tracks on Prior Street to Main  Street when requested to do so by  the City Council.

The People are Wei'  Beauty Corner as  a Means of Grace  Anna Burnham Bryant writes, in  the "Woman and Home" department  of Canadian Countryman: A school  teacher is reported aB having fitted  up what she calls a "beauty corner"  for her pupils, a really luxurious little rest room with a divan covered  with an Oriental rug, and among thei  fine photographs and paintings, a picture of the Sistine Madonna. The e$  fect of the charming nook on restless  end mischievous children: was soon  apparent Insensibly, they were 'gen-:  tied" and tamed and refined by the in-  fluence of the little retreat which always seemed to lay a soothing hand  upon their spirits.  A mother was often puszled by the  request of her little daughter to be allowed to go up to the "spars bedroom"  and "stay a few whiles," as she child*  lshiy phrased it. -The tiny four-year*  old was the youngest in a crowded  household of children and grown people, and the press of dally work left  little time for aesthetic culture. Only  in one spot# had the. mother spent  time or money to add anything like  adornment, and that was because the  guest room was so little used that it  seemed best to bestow the one or two  nice things there to save them from,  rough usage. It was a dainty _reen-  and-whlte room, and, like Bunyan's  Chamber of Peace, it looked toward  the sun-rising.  One morning, in the midst Of the  rush and scramble to "straighten out  things," it occurred to her to follow  the little one, and see what she might  be doing. She peeped in at the door,  and paused in wonder. There on the  floor, in a square of softened* sunshine,  lay the missing baby, a look of supreme contentment on her chubby  face, all the irritation and crossness  of the morning gone entirely out of it.  "What are you doing here?" the  mother had it on her tongue to say,  but stopped and only looked the question.  'Tb just loving this loverly room!"  said the child, smiling her answer.  "It feels nice, muyver."  . The mother pondered the matter  for a day Or two, and then threw open  the guest room for general family  using, whenever guests were not in it.  Moreover, she began to brighten the  rest of the house with Uttle beauty  touches. The children's manners improved, and her own spirit gained tu  repose and serenity. Few grown people are aware how the sordidness and  hurly-burly of dally life wear and rasp  tiie delicate nerves ot children. It Is  for the mother to appreciate and provide the saying grace of the "beauty  corner"���������some quiet, graceful nook, a  Uttle apart, where small troubled  spirits may become sweet and still  again.  HOW IMPORTANT 18 THE WOMAN?  Dr. Helen McMurchy, at once the acknowledged leader of tbe feminist  movement In Canada, and one of the  Dominion'sS������*������t popular descriptive  writers as well, strikes the right  chord when' she ��������� suggests that humanity has long urged greater consideration for our women, not only in  public life, let us confess, but in our  homes. While women nave begun,  with some effect, to demand consideration, their most effective advocate  is still humanity; which, we all know,  is increasing in tbe world. Men and  women make natural partners, in tha  families' business, as weU as in the  home life, and we are IncUned to think  that lt each were to seek a closer and  more sympathetic acquaintance with  tbe other, both would be better satis-  fled with life!  Dr. McMurchy, by the way, has  editorial charge of the staff of writers  for the weekly "Woman and Home"  repartment of Canadian Countryman.  She says "The interests of women  will be considered in the articles to be  published ln Canadian Countryman, as  well as those of the men. We hope  that each will read those published  for the other; and both those for the  boys and the girls.  Mount Pleasant Baptist Church.  Cor.

In the case of these German cities,  undeveloped land far in the suburbs  is laid out in detail for years to come.  A map in the city hall will show proposed streets and boulevards; the  land to be used for parks, open spaces,  etc., all selected In anticipation of the  city's growth and purchased almost  at agricultural value. The width and  character of strets have reference to  their use and the traffic they will  have. Private owners and builders  must conform and are not permitted  to destroy the harmony of the whole,  nor use their property to injure their  I neighbors.    The   city   is  paramount.  ��������� The people are sovereign. Dirty factories are not allowed in sections  which they would injure. Skyscrapers cannot disfigure and congest, nor  are they permitted to rob others of  ! sunlight and   air.���������From, Kenneth J.  {Dunstan's article, 'Taking Care of Our  Cities," in Canadian Countryman.

Special funds are created with  which to buy and sell real estate just  as a private operator. The purpose ia  officially described "to restrain the  unnatural augmentation of the prices  of land." Through Its large land  holdings it is claimed tbe city keeps  down speculation values and shares  in the unearned Increment. The purchase of land is "aid to be encouraged  by the state, which not only advises  towns to hold on to what tbey have,  but to add to their prossessions.  When land is sold to private parties  conditions as to character of buildings, etc., are frequently imposed.  Sites are reserved for parka and other  public grounds.  It is claimed that cities are able  to finance large works by re-sale of  a portion of the land expropriated,  thus retaining the unearned increment which the development created.  ���������From Kenneth J.

Construction work on the new line between  Elk and Golden is' said to involve a  round three million. To say nothing  of the phenomenal expansion of the  fruit-growing industry within recent  months, the enormous resources of the  immediate territory in oil and mineral deposits are now becoming a leading factor in the present industrial  situation, and experts state that the  Sage Creek oil fields now being opened  up east of Elko are likely to prove  among the most extensive on the. continent. ,  MY iMiyy  DF-DOUBT  p/mSt   1  yy  *   T-_ lapreeeated myself oa atta," '���������^J*������*������"*��������� *���������������? aaTtaiWf wtt  am* stammered.

Only Alfred Grant  made trouble, presuming on what bo  termed our engagement, and endeavored to force my brother to Join tho  King's troops.

Tho Queen's  Rangers, in which regiment my father secured Grant a commission,  ware ln New York, while Brio waa stationed up the river with Morgan'a  riflemen.

This reckles life waa greatly to hla  liking; I saw him occasionally by appointment, usually at Elmhurst, aad  became aware that Us old qaarrel  with Captain Grant was seemingly forgotten.

ThoawhatT  Tho probability was thst he was either riding to Elmhurst, or to some rea*  desvous with Fagin. Some plan had  been interrupted by Clinton's sudden  .march, by the British defeat at Monmouth, and Grant waa risking hit  commission, braving the charge of do*  [sertlon, for soma private purpose.  This might be love of Claire, rovongo  upon Brie, or possibly both combined.  jTbe latter would seem moot probable.  ���������He would use Brio ln some way to  threaten the sister, to compel bar to  sacrifice herself. She waa of a nature  to do this, as was already abundantly  proved by her assumption of male  attire to save Eric's reputation. My,  own responsibility loomed large aa I  reached tbls conclusion, and remembered her appeal for help.

The Voters' League of Soutb Van
couver, in several speeches made at
their meeting ln Pender Hall on Monday evening, spoke of the unsatisfactory condition of municipal affairs.
The proposed municipal coal supply,
said one speaker, was difficult to form
because of the presence In the council
of at least two men who were interested in the present private concern.
Mr. Robert McBride affirmed that
the trouble waa increased by the fact
that few voters knew the stamp of
men whom their vote upheld. Many
owners of South Vancouver property
were residents of the city and knew
next to nothing of South Vancouver
affairs. That was one of the reasons
the meeting had been held in the city
that these people could become acquainted with these matters. Men
who awarded, contracts without tenders and disposed of the people's
funds In anything but permanent improvement were not the men fit to
govern.' The people, he said, were not
getting 35 cents on a dollar of expenditure. There had been an agitation
for industrial sites. Numberless manu
facturers had turned away from Vancouver because of the excessive cost
of factory sites. The municipality
ahould control tbe waterfrontage and
other locations for industries, so that
manufacturers could be offered reasonable terms, and thus build up an
industrial city. But it could not be
done with borrowed money.
The municipality owed the Bank of
Montreal $1,500,000, said Mr. Edward

'  For tales of sheer hair-raising exploits, let us recommend to our readers. Professor Wallace's. "Stories ot  the Royal North West Mounted P6-  Chart reading, stop loss orders, and  scale orders, all of which have been  discussed previously in these articles,  fall naturally into the category of me* j ~^��������� ^ Canadlan Countryman. The  cbanical speculation, and as such. oan.ilaconIc manner in w_lch ^^ of  not be advised except as an adjunct to ^ 8torieft are .^ in ihe offlciai  operations. Such methods are valuable only when employed as an auxiliary to sound judgment already  formed. So used they possess certain  merit in that they permit of a fixed  mechanical arrangement for accumulation or protection.  The contention might be made at  this point that the scale order should  be used only for the purpose Of acquiring a line of stocks at low prices,  or for the sale of stocks at high  prices; and the stop loss order for the  protection of profits after an advance.  Otherwise employed they become useless, and ln some cases even assist in  (reports is worthy of notice. The fol*  lowing may serve as a sample. The  writer waa corporal Hogg, who was  stationed at North Portal, near the  boundary .line:  "On the 17th Inst., 1, Corporal Hogg;  waa called to the hotel to quiet a disturbance. I found the room full of  cowboys, and one Monaghah, or 'Cowboy Jack,' ��������� waa carrying a gun and  pointed it at me, against sections 105  and. 109 of the Criminal Code. We  struggled. Finally I got him handcuffed behind and put him inside.. His  head being in bad shape I had to engage the services of a doctor,, who  producing loss.   The reason for this | dressed the wound and pronounced it  aa nothing serious. To tbe doctor  Monagbaa said that if I hadn't grabbed his gun there'd be another death  in Canadian history. All of which 1  have the honor to report.  (Sighed) "C. Hogg, Corporal."  To this the corporal's superior offlcer added the statement: "During  the arrest of Monaghan tbe following  government property was damaged:  Door broken, screen smashed up, chair  broken, field-jacket belonging to Corporal Hogg spoiled by being covered  with blood, wall bespattered with  blood." This gloss throws a Uttle  light on the brevity of the original  text  has already been given.  It is useless to enlarge upon the  various methods employed by mechanical traders, for they are all alike In  that they resolve the whole speculative and investment structure into a  gambling machine, with a big percentage against the player, To the large  number of people who risk their  money in this manner, and-who con*  tend tbat there is no use th trying to  forecast accurately probable movements by actual statement be made:  - The man who buys a stock at fifty  dollars a share becauae he has good  . reason for believing that it ia worth  one hundred dollars, or who sells at  one hundred on account of having  good reasons for believing it worth  fifty dollars,' Is the only man h* the  speculative world who succeeds. 'Similarly, the person who buys a good security for Investment when times are  hard and depression rules in financial  circles, and who holds It tor an appreciation in value until prosperity  once again rules, is the only one who  will succeed in the investment world.  When the study and thought necessary to forming such conclusions In  telUgontly are eliminated in favor of  any or all other methods, the colossal  error ta made of exporting from the  planof operations the only possible  <&snfce of sqstaineirstfccess, the great  beeio principle to which all other  knowledge, technical or statistical, ts  purely subsidiary.   .-  There is unfortunately a large class  of persons capable of clear thought  and sound judgment who In some un-  hnown manner have convinced themselves that they have found a way to  beat the stock raarfcets. They have  formulated some system founded on  their half-baked ideas of chances and  probabilities, and they buy here and  sell there in accordance with a fixed  tule. They ignore the fact that tbe  spstock exchange is not a machine, that  ft ia liable to be swung hither and  thither by the ever-changing series of  events. In consequence they lay themselves open to loss of capital, but instead of looking at tbe manner from a  business standpoint, they take lt for  granted that there ia something wrong  with their system, and! tthe the roulette player, seek to discover some  new way to woo the fickle goddess.  It is tbls class which is largely responsible for the mechanical methods  of speculation.���������A. J. Treble In Canadian Countryman.  WHERE   LANGUAGE   FAIL8.  Perhaps the most charming bf all  Joaquin Miller's works is bis prose romance or autobiography, "Life Among  the Modocs," a story of Indian life, in  which the soul of the red man is more  sympathetically figured than in any  other book, suggests a contributor tb  The Humanitarian. London.  Take this passage:  "I said to the old chief one day:  -Your language is very poor; It haa so  few words.' '��������� ,;���������  " 'We have enough. It does not  take many- words to tell the truth.' he  " 'Ah, but we have a hundred words  to your one.' 'y'-y.x'y'-'^:1''.  ' .,'��������� 'WeWi you need them*' . . The  old Indian rose aa he said this, and  gathered his blanket about bis shoulders. His dog lay with his nose on  bis two paws, and bis eyes raised to  his master's. 'Tou have hat words  enough In all your books to give a  single look from the eyes of my dog.'  ���������Canadian Countryman.  Poles andtas-Ties  Quantities Purchased in Canada in  V 1912-  In 1912, there were 608,550 poles  purchased hy Canadian railways, and  telegraph, telephone and light and  power companies, according to a recent bulletin of the Forestry Branch,  Ottawa. This represents an outlay of  11,113,524, , making the average cost  per pole $1.83. The total number of  poles purchased and the average  price per pole increased somewhat  from corresponding figures for 1911.  Cedar made up 86 per cent of the  total number of poles cut, the western  cedar being increasingly used fbr this  purpose. BalBam, fir, tamarack and  spruce made up tbe balance of the cut,  the greater part of the poles being between 20 and 25 feet in length.  In 1912, there' were purchased 21,-  308,571 ties representing a value of  $9,373,869. This represents the large  Increase of 48 J. per cent, over the  number of ties purchased in 1911, due  probably to the extensive railway con*  struction now going on.  Jack pine ties made up 36.5; per  cent, of the total with an average  value of $0.44. Cedar waB second on  the list with an .average.cost at point  of purchase of forty-five cents, followed by Douglas fir, averaging 30  centa per tie. In all twenty-one different species of wood Were used.  Ties treated with preservatives  made up 8.6 per cent, of the.number  purchased. These were chiefly-hardwoods, it being found more economical to treat the heavier, stronger  woods, than those which are liable to  fail from mechanical wear before they  have time to decay. Some of the eastern railways are now using hardwood  ties exclusively.  Some Stories of "John Ay  IMMIGRANTS AND THEIR MONEY.  WISDOM   ANO   FOOLISHNESS  FAIRIE8.  OF  OINSENG-fv^XJO PER ACRE-  Some people bave scoffed at fairy  tales. But more have been wise en*  ough to se the folly of such scoffing.  Those that scoff, you have noticed,  are usually those who never see the  Inner meaning of literature, who have  no use for parable or allegory, to  whom the wealth of the thought of the  great men of this earth Is a closed  book.  Fslry tales usually have their origin ln the dim and far-off past From  age to age they have been handed  down, with rare accretions and alterations. Children���������and, generally, we  older children!���������are impatient of  change. They like to hear the old,  old story in the old, old way. But  always the stories deal with the primal passions of the race���������with the almost invariable accompaniment of an  appeal to that sense of wonder which,  t thank Ood, Is not dead even In this  age of wonders, when we are so accustomed to facts dimly hinted at in  tbose old world tales, that we give  them no second thought.  ���������' Many clever men have found their  pleasure in collecting, collating, and  translating these old folk tales. Each  country has its own. even our own  Canada. We hope to take you to the  Fiords of Normandy, the Black Forest of Germany, the pleasant country-  Bide of La Belle France, tbe quaint  bazaars and wind swept plains of distant Araby, and to India, whose very  name seems to breathe musk and sandalwood.���������From the Children's Page  of Canadian Countryman.  Ginseng ls, as most people know, a  root which Is used in the manufacture  of drugs and medicines. By far the  greater portion of it is exported to  China, and the demand is such that  the price is advancing year by year.  Tbe word ginseng is said to signify  man plant" In the Chinese, from a  fancied resemblance of its roots to  tbe form of a man. The root is mildly aromatic and slightly stimulant  but the Chipese and Koreans place a  high value upon it, and regard it as a  panacea. Tbe demand is for medium  sized, ringed, dark, uniform roots, and  the prices paid have been as high aa  $7.25 a pound.  Mr. W. Walker, a successful Canadian ginseng-farmer, explains at  length bow he clears six thousand dollars an acre from hia farm, in a recent issue of the Canadian Countryman. Briefly summing up for interested "Call" readers, tt may be said  that the seed la sown broadcast in  the Fail, and transplanted In the  spring of the second year, to rows 6  Ins. by 4 Ins. apart The third year  the seedlings are placed In rows 6 Ins.  by 8 ins. apart and the fourth year in  rows 8 ins. by 10 ins. In the fifth  year they are ready for sale. Some  growers sell at thrte and four years,  but the full  until the planta are five years old  the price that the Chinese are willing  to pay depends, within wide limits,  upon the size, appearance, and condition of the roots, it pays the grower  to study the demand more than is  often done.  In the courseof a three-page discussion of the general financial situation  throughout Canada, W. L. Edmonds  writes in Canadian Countryman:  "Still another factor that must be  taken into consideration is that of  Immigration. The number of new im*  migranta arriving in the country are  averaging _ about 1200 a day. At least  tbe great proportion of these are  wealth producers. Many of them are  coming into tbe country well equipped with this world's goods. The I4i,*  000 who came In from tho United  States last year are officially est!  mated to have brought tn on ah average $1,000 each in money and effects,  while the aggregate from the 400,000  Immigrants all told that took up tbelr  abode with us ls computed at $200.-  000,000. Tbla means capital as well  as producers. This year the immigration promises to beat all records.  And as long as Immigration is good  we have a strong factor for the maintenance of good trade conditions."  FRUIT INPUSTRY RMTS  ON SOLID BA8I8  jElko, B. C���������Inquiries from Australia and Now Zealand for British Columbia apples have exceeded all past  records this year, and aa a result  shipments to the.se colonies will aggregate Into the high figures. The  fruit inspection system of British Columbia haa now been thoroughly reorganized, and instead of one inspector for the entire Province, deputy in*  spectors are stationed at all leading  shipping points, ln some instances the  local customs officers - having undertaken to act as Inspectors.  The active Interest that the Provincial government ls taking ln the fruit  growing industry ls also indicated by  the appointment recently of a commission to visit California and other  fruit growing States with the purpose  of studying marketing methods -and  the utilization of horticultural by-products in those districts. Incidentally  It Is expected that Important Information will be gathered regarding the  So many stories about Sir John A.  Macdonald are apocryphal,. and sc  many of these are unfit tojtrint, that  It is a decidedly dangerous pastime to  attempt to present a colection of  them. Professor W. S. Wallace, the  Canadian historian, succeeds admirably in throwing hew side-lights upon  "John A���������" the man, in his "Stories of  Sir John A. Macdonald, in that great,  new national weekly, Canadian Countryman.  Professor Wallace tells how, on one  occasion, Lord Dufferin. delivered an  address in Greek before the University of McGill College. Sir John Macdonald and Sir Hector Langevin were  both present and afterwards Sir Hector waa reading in the newspaper a  report of the proceedings. One sentence ln the newspaper report particularly'attracted his attention. It ran,  "His Lordship spoke in tbe purest  ancient Greek without mispronouncing  a word or making the slightest grammatical solecism."  "Good Heavens," exclaimed Sir Hector, "how did the reporter know that?"  "I told him,' replied Sir John.  "But you don't know Greek."  "True,', answered Sir John, "but I  known a little about .politics."  *  A remarkable feature about Sir  John Macdonald was his capacity for  remembering, faces and names. On  the occasion of his visit to Vancouver  in 1886, a man came up to Sir John  and introduced himself by. saying:  "Sir John, I don't suppose you remember me?"  Oh, yes,' said Sir John, Without  hesitation, "I met you at a political  picnic ln 1866, and you may remember  it was a ralhy day.'  "Tes," aald the man, "that waa the  very occaalon.'  Sir John had met him but on this  one occasion, and bad remembered  bis Cace after thirty years.  In this connection, there is a good  story which well Illustrates the difference between Sir John A. and his  great opponent Alexander; Mac-ke-i-  ste. One day there came up to Ottawa a Canadian who bad been for a  .number of yeara in journalism in the  United States, on the staff of the Detroit Free Press. He had met both  Mackenzie and Macdonald,. and was  anxious to bave a talk with them. He  met Mackenzie on the steps of the  Parliament Buildings, and stopping  blm, he held out his band and said.  "Hoar do you do. Mr. Mackenzie? Do  you remember me? I am Smith, of  the Petroit Free Press.  Mackenzie looked at bim. and said.  "No, young mon. I don't remember  ye; and what's more," he said, raising bis voice, "I'd like ye to know  tbat im too old, and I've seen too  much of this world, to be taken In by  any of tbae confidence tricks."  A little while later the journalist  ran into Macdonald. N  "How do you do. Sir John?" he began. "1 wonder If you know who 1  am?   Iia-"  "Stop," aald Sir John, aa he shook  him by the hand. "I know your face  ���������just wait a moment���������let me see~!-  Detroit���������Detroit   Free   Press���������stop���������'comparatively  poor  man.  strength.and frailties. He had his  bad faults; but his heart waa sound.  "Sir John Macdonald," said Sir John  Abbott, "lived during -the greater part  of his life with unparalleled facilities  for amassing wealth.   Tet he died a  But per-  dOn't tell me���������I have It���������Smith, of the  Detroit Free Press. How are you,  Smith? I'm glad to see you again."  sIn later days, in -the House of Commons, a good score was made by Sir  Richard Cartwright off Sir John Macdonald, ln regard to his bibulousness.  Sir John A. had-recently had his biography written by a man named John  Collins; and discussion having arisen  in the House with regard to certain  sums paid to Mr. Collins, Sir Richard  Cartwright rose and observed tbat "It  waa a happy association of Ideas, and  'haps the moat eloquent tribute paid  him was that,of his old cabman,' Buck*,  ley. "I have driven Sir John," said  Buckley, with tbe tears on his cheeks,  "for thirty-eight years, winter and  summer. I have never known him'to  be out of temper; never Jtnown hljn  to say a cross word, no matter how  rough the road might be, or how careless I might drive." \  His "Stories of Sir John,' ls only,  one of Professor Wallaces tremendously popular historical articles.

It waa said that  no one in the House laughed at this  sally more heartily than Sir Jojin.  Not only his bad habits, but his  facial characteristics, Sir John was In  the way of joking about A member  of parliament once went down to the  barber shop of the/ Parliament Buildings, and found Sir John In the barber's chair. The barber was shaving  Sir John's upper lip at the time, and  had hold of his large nose.  "I suppose, Sir John," said the M.P.,  "that is the only man in Canada who  can take you by the nose with Impunity."  "Tes, murmured Sir John, "and he  haa his hands pretty full."

KRAAL-PLANNING  IN  AFRICA.  A writer on colonizing recently  stated that the Germans set to work  to create two towns in Africa in conspicuous contract to other settlements, allocating a great park to the  natives, making them erect their  kraal in large squares intercepted  with broad roadways with great palms  on either side. Nairobi, a British settlement, Is fashioned ��������� much in the  same way. This illustrates the extent  to which town planning has entered  into the spirit of other peoples.���������From  Kenneth J.

THAT UTILITrEfl COMMISSION.  I do not know who is the first man to suggest  and urge an early attempt in this direction, but  the move is one in the right direction. There  are two phases at least of this question and they  are these: "A Commission on Utilities** appointed to study the whole range of possible utilities  which should be taken over by the public in the  interests of the people. "A Utilities Commission" to handle any utilities taken over at any  time in any given place. The first I take to be  general and provincial. The second is special,  and would have to be for certain corporations,  or districts wherein such utilities might be taken  over by a municipality or civic corporation.  Of course, if any utility of a provincial scope  were established, then the specific, commission,  wnich would handle it, would be necessarily  provincial. This Utter mignt, for instance, handle  the provincially owned and managed coal-mines,  when legislation would have brought this commodity within.the range of purely public use,  and managed by the public.  To the citizens of Vancouver the following may  be of interest. In 1894, I believe, Vancouver had  a unique opportunity to purchase the entire tram  system, but when th* crucial time came, the bye-  law was voted down. Many of the citizens, now  urging to take over the service, opposed the deal  at that time, even though the sum involved was  less thin 7$400,000.00. /  : Iu1$191 there will be another chance to purchase. Of course the sum'will run up into the  millions. And when the time comes, it may again  beythat the people will not vote the requisite  money for the transaction. They will need to do  a lot of serious thinking, and study all the liabilities carefully before going too rapidly into the'  deal. But when that time comes the public should  either face the purchase, or settle down to an  ownership similar to the present, which is as up-  to-date as any in Canada.  Eburne  The.

A' request from Mr. F.

One of those waa to the effect  that the University ;' advance, the  money necessary to lay the water  mains and take pay for such amount  in water supplied. The^other proposition ls tbat the University advance  the money for the^maln until such  time as the district becomes settled,  when the municipality will take over  the main. ,  It waa left In the hands bf a committee to confer with the board of  governors of the University.

Law*- Druggist  Wauls to See You  Your Prescription  WE would like to say a  word about our Prescription Department this  week. We consider this the  most important department  of the business and give it  the most careful attention.  When your doctor writes  you a prescription he expects  to get certain results, and he  has to depend to a great  extent on the druggist for  those results. If he does not  get exactly what he prescribes, and get the best, he  cannot get the best results.  - We furnish our dispensary  with the best and purest  drugs and chemicals we can  obtain* and none but experienced men do the dispensing.  We want your confidence,  we want you to feel that  when you give us your prescription, you have got the  Desc.

The worker wbo realises his need  of education and fuller information  can get it. He must have lt supplied  to tbe home, to be studied from day  to day. It must he suited to hia conditions, and be practical. To help him,  it must add to what he knows or can  learn for himself from his work. So  it must lay before him the experience  of others, aa well aa the facts dug up  by Science. And out of tbe great mass  of available material, careful selection  must be made for him, so that the  greatest amount may be learned, of  the best value, in the shortest time.  The one instrument that can be.relied  upon, to give the greateat aervice to  the greateat number la the Instructive  home magaslne.  A WIDER RANGE OF READING.  A paper which exists to provide  technical and trade education to the  people who are developing Canada  must, however, in the nature of things,  do more than that. As life is more  than meat, so are the people of this  great new land interested in more  than the work of their hands. The  women and young folks in our homes  are concerned, with the men, in  making home life more comfortable,  more attractive, more satisfying.  In    providing    articles    we    Bhall  assume that all our readers have a  love of the beautiful, and that they  desire to realise lt more ln home" surroundings and ln daily life, and  thought. There will be profit in  studying beautiful designs. Interior  decorations and furnishings are of  course interesting to those to whom  their home Is their city in one.  Gardening is an art as well* as a science, and to many it is a delightful  hobby. None can, Indeed, yield more  of happiness both to oneself and to  the jest of the family. The garden of  the mind- and'that of the heart Shall  be cultivated by the stories and the  little histories and the other things  we expect to publish.  "THE GREATE8T GOOD OF THE  GREATE8T NUMBER."  Our men and women have an interest in public affairs which might be  intensified, and which should be fed  with fuller information. The fathers  and mothers of the Csnadlan people  of the next generation cannot know  too well the story ot their country,  cannot watch too carefully the conduct of governments. The difficulties  of governing and legislating for a  nation spread over four thousand miles  are intensified hy the variety of nationalities and sectional interests  which exist.   The sympathetic appre  ciation of these difficulties and the  criticism of the government's shortcomings go properly together. Exclusive consideration of self or one's  class is contrary to the spirit of citizenship, and is dangerous when lt ls  the habit of many in the nation. There  is but one way to be fair. It ls to  understand. The people of the various  classes must get acquainted with each  other.  THE NATIONAL 8PIRIT.  The first duty of the citizen and the  father of citizens is to know his country, all of it, as well as he can. Thinking people will study in fairness the  conditions prevailing In other parts  than those with which they are familiar. They will seek to balance evenly  the Interests of all when they set out  to promote their own. At bottom, we  all need to know tho facts more fully,  and to listen less lmpressionably ,to  the politicians that pervade our  bounds.  To give the facts aa fully as we can,  and to open our columns to the  opinions of ail sides of disputed questions, is the policy we shall follow in  such matters. We cannot undertake  to indorse the views expressed by  every writer. Neither shall we atate  partial or one-sided arguments. The  Canadian   Countryman   will   be   the  blackboard On which everyone may  chalk up his ldeaa���������-if only be writes  a good enough hand to please the  audience! In such matters the rules  of debate shall be Straight Argument,  Fair Play and Good Feeling. The big  thing is, to dig out. tbe Truth.  OUR NEW NEIGHBORS.  We shall try to make The Country*  man especially Interesting and useful  to those- who..; have not been long  enough in Canada to understand very  well Just what sort of a country thia  Is, or how to make the moat of tbelr  work here. We extend a warm welcome to .these additions to our big  family, and offer them our best.  THE~NEW MORAl^ IN BUSINESS.  One of the most striking features of  modern business has been the extent  to which we are dependent upon advertising for information upon the  articles and services we buy. We sell  our wheat, bur bacon, our wool, to  people we have never seen, and they  trust to get good quality when they  know where the goods come from.  Similarly we buy from factories often  thousands of miles away, and the'men  who make, our-shoes, our clothes, our  mowers and engines do not know us  from the heathen Chinee.  ~ Tet they talk to us about their  goods. They explain their good points,  and give reasons for discrimination  between theirs and others; reasons  which we consider carefully when we  buy. When we are sufficiently convinced by this talk of quality and service by the advertisements, the re-  taller or agent has a hard time of It If  he tries to change our views. . But  sometimes in the past, and occasionally even yot, we are fooled by falae  statements or too plausible boasting.  There are useful things and useless  things advertised. There are occasionally exaggerated claims to merit  __ made for even the best goods. The  /reader must have confidence in advertising on the whole, or he cannot get  along. Advertising should be cleaned  of that sort which misleads, which  Injures the public in "morals, healtb  or pocketbook," as one magaslne has  expressed it. We pledge ourselves to  do our utmost .to keep our pages  clean of all such questionable advertising.���������The Publishers of "The Canadian Countryman."  P. S.���������In the next Issue of our  magazine (our special British Columbia issue, by the way) begins our new  serial story. "Gaff Linkum," by that  nrince of Canadian novelists, Archie  McKlshine.
