The machine has simply run riot through the civil service, expanding the appropriation uniM now it is greater by far than the cost of civil Government in Ontario or Quebec, and. indeed, is nearly as large as the two combined. The cosl of this branch' of provincial administration since 1910, as taken from the last Public Accounts is as follows: liiOO-10 1910-11 1311-12 S75.GOU 1912-13 1913-14 1PU-15 1915-16 (voted) 1.709.5G6 Last session the legislature voted 91.687.736 for this service. Thus the civil government salary total is now three times as large as it was in 1911-12. when the province was at its height of the boom, and twice as large as it was four years a20. And the pop- ulatiou of the country is many thous- ands less than it in thost years In 1909-10. "when the civil service cost the province only the revenue and the expen- diture In 191M3, when the civil salary bill had mouuteu to the revenue was and the expenditure was Sln.fi2U.S05. But last year and this war a revenue less than half the revenue of ana an expen- diture which while it is twice the rev- enue is less than it was three years ago. the cost of the civil service has been doubled. The rule seems to he. the larger the deficit between revenue and expenditure the greater the cost of civil government.

PRESIDENT WILSON AND j THE RAILWAY STRIKE. j Republican newspapers in the Unit- j ed States are "panning" President; "Wilson right and left for his attitude in the controversy between the rail-] roads and employees over tho eight i hour day question. They claim that j he is vacillating in this problem as j in his negotiations over the submarine j controversy with Germany. The employees laid their demand before President Wilson, and he sue- j ceeded in lopping off some of their; minor demands, leaving the eight hour demand as it stocd. The President- called the railroad managers to: counsel with him, and found that they.] most strenuously objected to the S-: hour day, claiming that the roads be forced into the hands of; receivers. Then President Wilson 'suggested' that probably the Inter-' state Commerce Commission would al-' low the roads to increase their j freight rates, thus recouping them-! selves. Republican papers see in this j suggestion a case of "passing the of "letting George do it." George being the farmer, the stock- man, the fruit grower, the consuming public.

The Sunshine Furnace saves coal because it well made and because every part has been care- fully thought out. LOOK IT OVER. Any one can see that the greatest heating factor in a furnace is the fire-pot; that a pot with straight walls like the Sunshine fire-pot will give off more heat than one that must often have an outer lining of ashes. Doors and dampers that are tightly fitted will certain- ly hold the fire longer than those that are loosely fitted. The wider air passages and larger radiating surfaces of the Sunshine must heat the air much more readily. These'Sunshine Furnace features are coal-savers that mean much in mid-winter.
