No other nioans exist whereby Canadu'.s t)roduct.H may be purch;i�ed. 1� In this connection. It Is pointed out that tho Victory Loan of last fall Vur-tilshod a distribution of money wliicli has kept tho wheels of Industry humming ever since. In tliat ilistrlhution ull classes of .the community have shared directly or indirectly. A Handicap One handicap which Canada has to overcome In an effort of this Icind arises out of the fact that while a territory as large as the United States has to bo covered it contains only about, one-fourteenth of the population ol that country. Nevertheless, In suite of thiB dlsadvamagd, Canada's last Victpry Loan represented tho high water maris of war loan achlovcment if relative population and wealth are taken Into account. Canada raised in that effort over $'100,000,000 which i? over .$500, per head of her population. The last Liberty Loan in the United States, which was most sticcossfui, raised four btllion dollars, an avorago of $400, per head of population. As the United Stfttes has thirty or forty times the wealtli of Canada, Canada's ofCori, after throe and a half years of, was about equal to the United States Liberty Loan, of from three to fifteen billion dollarB. The minister of finance believes in one great effort every year In order that the business of the Dominion may not bo disturbed by campaigns at iii tervals of four or six months. He Is 'Entirely confident that the coming Victory Loan will eclipse all former ef forts both in the number of subscribers and the aggregate of their sub scriptions.
