instruments of government In every civilized community may call for more titan passing appreciation. This Initial Canadian census was repeated several times during the French regime, after which a series of less elaborate Investigations by siiccesslve Colonial Governors took its place. The first legislation on the subject was an Act of the Vnited Provinces, dated 1847. L'nder it a census of Upper and Lower Canada was taken in 1851 and again In 18G1. Censuses of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were taken lu the same years.

An account of these and of preceding investigations may be found in Volume IV of tlie Report of the Census of 1H71, a volume designed to start the new Dominion on its career with a review of all previous stutlstlcs relating to its domain. At Confederation the British North America Act sperifleiully mentioned The census and statistics" as falling within Dominion as distinguished from Pnivlndsl jurisdiction (Section 911. The first Dominion Census Act was passed in 1870. and the first census whs taken thereunder In 1871. Similar comprehensive censuses have followed every tenth year, namely.

1881, 1891, 1991, 1911 and 1921. Ill 1886. a special census of Manitoba and the Northwest Territories was taken midway betwpen tlie other censuses. This so-called Quinquennial census was repeated for Manitoba In 1896, whilst In 191)6, 1916 and 1926. It also embraced Saskatchewan and Alberta, rreated Into provinces in 19115, the reason being the rapidly changing conditions in these newer sections of the Dominion.

The census nf June 1, 1931, is therefore tlie seventh comprehensive decennial cenxua to he taken since Confederation. The administration nf the census was originally vested in the Minister nf Agriculture; In 1912, however, in a reorganization and centralization of the statistical work of tlie Government It was transferred to the Minlxer of Trade and Commerce, who will' accordingly promulgate the schedules and regulations of the present census. CARL J. BRAREN EDITORIAL NOTES Premier Benaett -told pauliament the other day that he had luvesstl-gated the Canadian banking system and found It to be satisfactory and fully adepuate to meet Canadian exl-geuciea and conditions. But there are even conservatives In Claresholm ready to argue the point with him.

ooo One of the great arts that should be taught more thoroughly hi our schools Is that of telling stories. To tell a good story, and tell It well, is Indeed a great accomplishment. Tills Tact was forcibly brought to onr attention at the Mother's Day services Sunday morning, when Mrs. Williams told to the hoys and girls the story of The Cap That Mother Made. A rumor emanating from Ottawa indicated that Premier IL B.

Bennett contemplated matrimony. Nothing would aniusb the Canadian people more than to see Itlehard Bedford and Agnes set an example for the rest of the lonely parliamentarians to follow. It might surprise some of the economists and statisticians to learn that several thousand famlltea In Western Canada have re-established themselves on farms this spring. Quite a few Instances are noted in the Claresholm area. In spite or low prices, the farm seems to offer a sense of security that is not found In the towns and cities by people who are not regularly engaged in well organized and soundly established lines of business and Industry.

(Lethbridge Herald) The silver question will not down. People on this continent may have thought that it liad breathed its last In 1896, when William Jennings Bryan, with his cross of gold" and crown of thorns" speeches (luring the presidential election campaign In the United States that year, went down to defeat. But the question will not down. Every day some new financial authority Is speaking publicly about it. One of the few occasions upon which Rt.

Hon. Arthur Melghen, former Premier of Canada, has spoken since his retirements from politics, brought from him the suggestion that silver was not being given Its proper place In our monetary system. Hon. Mr. Melghen put forward the suggestion of a British banker that a Bank of the British Empire be formed to buy all gold and silver used In thp Empire aa coinage, and new coinage issued to he known as Rex" The price for silver, instead of being 36 rents an ounce, as It Is now, would at once lie raised to 90 cents, nr almut 28 to 1 as compared with gold.

Bankers and business men, whose property Is valued upon the gold standard, are not likely to receive the suggestion with anything but a cold shoulder, but hundreds of millions of the world's people In India. China and other parts of Asia South America would welcome the Melghen proposal herauxe It would mean that thpir buying power would be tremendously Increased, and Increased buying power appears to he tlie world's greatest need at the present time. Business men of the world, gathering in Washington last week to attend the convention of the International Chamber of Commerce, were rather Inclined to the opinion that.

It is called a "multi-pressure" engine because it generates its steam in three separated portions and at three different pressures and, herause of its radical departures in boiler design, i creating something of a furore in mechanical and railroad circlet. Facts and figures of the 8000 will give some indication of its magnitude, efficiency and strength. It is onlv a scant nine inches short of 100 feet in length. Weight of engine is 485,000 Ilia, and of tender 300,000 making a total of 785,000 lha. or 392 tons.

It has five rnsi driving wheels on earn side, each of which TEN REASONS why you should have your car CAREFULLY INSPECTED before hot weather starts 1. RADIATOR cleaned out and defective hose connections replaced. 2. IGNITION careful Iv checked; COIL and POINTS inspected. 3.

GENERATOR BRUSHES and BEARINGS in-spebted and replaced if necessary. 4. FAN BELT tightened or replaced with new one. 5. BATTERY CONNECTIONS cleaned and greased and BATTERY TESTED.

6. SPARK PLUGS are always replaced at 10,000 miles by careful car owners, who know that points burn off. 7. OIL FILTER should be changed at 10,000 miles, as inside of can becomes clogged with dirt. S.

All IGNTION CABLE or WIRING should be checked for breaks. 9. REAR END and TRANSMISSION GREASE changed to Summer grade. 10. WATER PUMP and FAN carefully checked.

Septic Tank is 83 inches in diameter. Its tractive effort is 90,000 lbs. which means that on a level track it will haul a freight train, over a mile in length, made up of one hundred and fifty 40-ton cars and representing a total wetght of 6000 tons. Its tender has a rapacity of 12,000 gallons of water and 4350 gallon of fuel oil enabling it to make long hauls without replenishing. There are 18,695 feet or slightly over three and a hall miles of seamless steel tubes used in the construction of the boiler units alone.

j- An outstanding feature of the "8000" is the firebox unit which is a closed circuit in which 800 gallons of distilled water are continually circulating without loss by evaporation. Distilled water is used because it prevents accumulation of sludge and scale so common in water tube boilers. The closed circuit or firebox unit extends into the high-pressure boiler drum in the form ofl6 coils, called beat transfer coils. There are three locomotives of this type in Europe and they show excellent savings in fuel, ranging from Z5 to 35per rent, as compared witn the conventional type of locomotive. But the of the Europe" of this type only 42 per cent of the weight and develops only 86 per cent of the power of the '8000.
