The plan Is a good one. snd it includes the utilization of sll the inferior spruce, unsuitable for aeroplane stock, as paper pulp.

While many industries and undertakings have been compelled to make sacrifices because of war conditions the railways have had an immense and remunerative traffic and, in the case of one company at any rate, have been able to treat their shareholders in such fashion as to leave them little ground for complaint British Columbia should associate Itself with the protest being made by the Winnipeg Board of Trade.

The present prosperity in industries is brought about by the artificial demand for Iron, steel, metals, textiles and shipping, and the hundred and one other needs of the fighting men ashore and afloat. But as a disguise docs not alter the real person underneath It, so the apparent prosperity of many countries today does not alter the fact that the world's wealth is disappearing.
That wealth must be replaced. Some of it Is being replaced now. But in the matter of shipping, the vital need of the Allies, the replacement hi hot nearly fast enough. Great Britain is turning out ships at the rate of 2,000,000 tons a year. This is not enough.
The United States has barely begun its programme of building. And tho German submarine does not cease. The demand for food in Europe Is keen. Increased production overseas is helping to make good the loss sustained by the withdrawal of millions of men from agriculture. But a surplus of food In one part of the world is worthless unless there are ships to carry It to another part where it Is wanted.
The great problem of the British Empire after the war will be tonnage. Even though the British shipyards may continue to turn out ships at an unprecedented rate, nevertheless the needs of the home coming armies, the food requirements of irnr a no harm, An' kip it up night an day; He tak great pleasure wid sink de ship, Full of woman, an' boy, an" girl; An' stabbin' ol' man wid de bay on rt.

To the imaginative mind there may be an added awe, and wonder. I heard Oscar Wilde describe great machinery, and he turned the rythm of the fly wheel and the stroke of the great pistons Into a prose poem, but then O.

I am practical man enough to see that we can spare a lot of the poetry connected with material things if those things are turned to practical benefit.
Canadians have kept a lot of the "romance" of natural scenery and resources the "practical view" has appealed to Individuals and monopolizing corporations. Many a Canadian city should take to heart the lesson taught by Vermont, U. S. A. This state spent millions of dollars In compelling the rivers and brooks, which run down the slopes of the Green Mountains to the Connecticut River or Lake Champlain, to do their bit for the community by providing the force turned into light heat and power for the community.
The United States fuel controller has told many cities they must have "the curfew" when it is dark they must "douse the glim" and have "light less nights" because. In many places coal 1b used for making the steam which drives the turbines that turn the dynamos and coal must be conserved. Vermont having had the foresight to' go in for "white coal," water power and use water that has run to waste for millions of years, will be immune from this order. Vermont people have all the light, heat and power they need, at all times, because the authorities of the state were men who had the faculty of "looking before and after." Water power! It has been used for thousands of years but how differently! Now the water Is imprisoned In great tubes and there is only one water mill, of the old type, left In all the United States of America. uncomfortable, unbecoming and unnecessary when a radiant GAS FIRE can be purchased at such a low cost.
