Canada Faces 1921 With Confidence

IT IS doubtful if even at the height of the great war the people of Canada devoted more serious thought to the condition of their country than was done at the coming of 1921, with its accumulating economic problems. There had been a period of six months of falling prices, signs of depression in industry, and increases in unemployment, which embarrassed the authorities of the larger cities and with it all the general question was: What of the future?

M., CLEVELAND, N.S.—As a person with a few hundred dollars which I do not need, which of the following would you advise me to buy: Brazilian Traction or Dryden Paper Company? Or would you advise buying either fur a person who could not afford to lose his hard earned savings, but who is willing to take a chance providing that the odds are not too great?

CHARLES CHRISTOPHER JENKINS
ARE so-called "hunches" at the racetrack seriously considered by anyone outside the general run of petty bettors and casual attendants at race meets? Granted that he has seen the boards, noted the horses and the odds, observed track conditions, absorbed current gossip and has a rudimentary notion of race-track operations, what is the average race-goer’s “hunch” worth as a basis on which to place his money? Has a so-called “hunch,” without complete practical data on the horses, got a cash value—or, to use track vernacular, “is it worth a hoot?”

WEST of the 100th meridional line it begins to be in evidence. Here and there, when the train comes in. among the collected hats (on heads) at the depots, the traveller may note it. It is not the brand-new, wide-brimmed hat of the remittance man.

THINGS did not always go so smoothly. One night after a ball. Peter suggested I should walk away with him and try an American trotter which he had been lent by a friend. As it was a glorious night, I thought it would be fun, so we walked down Grosvenor Street into Park Lane and there stood the buggy under a lamp.

WHETHER you consider increasing Canada’s production of wheat, lumber, minerals, pulp—to make output equal currency and so prevent the smash of deflated currency; whether you consider paying the railroad deficit by increased traffic instead of increased taxes; whether you want to increase the output of paper to meet the paper famine, or how to get the most out of Canada’s natural resources for Canada rather than for foreign brokers—like Omar, you come back to the “same door as in you went.”

JAMES BRINKMAN’S rooms were in Westview Chambers, and the hall was empty, on a night in October when a young man swiftly entered, stepped into the lift and went up. On Brinkman’s landing he alighted, sent the lift down, and was about to press the bell of No. 8 when he saw that the door was ajar.

IN THE practical application of political principles to the existing needs of a country difierences of opinion arise, differences as to the means and as to the methods. Broadly considered, these differences of opinion are found to correspond with tendencies inherent in human nature.

HE DID not answer. My heart seemed to sink in my body, as the seconds dragged past and his upturned face remained a blank. “Where is that woman you call Elvira Paladino?” I demanded once more, with a ferocity which somewhat startled him. “I do not know,” he said at last, without emotion.

TOILERS at everyday callings little realize when they envy the lot of their fellows who earn their living by their wits in what is so-called the artistic path of life that the artist, whether he be of any one of the higher professions, or on the stage; a painter, writer, lecturer or even comedian has his “off days” when he could wish that the mountains would fall upon him.

THE United States, to-day, faces a momentous problem, for which both labor and capital must find a solution, says William B. Dickson, vice-president of the Midvale Steel and Ordnance Co., in a recent issue of Printers’ Ink. The choice lies, says this writer, between industrial democracy on one hand, and chaos or serfdom on the other.

QUARTERLY REVIEW
SIX YEARS have made an immense change in Japan as a militarist nation and a world power, says a well-informed, but anonymous, writer in the Quarterly Review: “Is Japan, as the wording of the Anglo Japanese Alliance would have us believe, a surety for the general peace in Eastern Asia and India, a champion of the independence and integrity of the Chinese dominions, and a sponsor for the principle of equal opportunities for the commerce and industry of all nations in China?

CANADIAN “soap-box” orators—and not a few of the more pretentious political spell-binders—whose chief stock-intrade around election times Is tawdry play on catch-phrases, colloquially known as “bromides,” should be mildly interested in the following “Letter to the Chancellor of the Exchequer,” by Henry Arthur Jones, the distinguished British dramatist, appearing in World's Work.
