That it "would seem reasonable, and more virile, if tlje need for pork and bacon is as great as' stated that the authorities at once commandeer the same for war purposes, or at least forbid public sale of same, it is so manifestly unfair that loyal Canadians are refraining from'the use of bacon while their alien neighbors, next door,1 are indulging to their hearts I content while our soldiers are in need.

"Mr. Young, in part, aald: Tn these days of knowledge and advancement, one would almost think the �ub]ect of religious intolerance as a ban to man's progress would iiave no place in the forward march of ihe enlightenment and religious liberty of our day. Nevertheless, in the light of the events which have transpired in our midst during the past few weeks tn tho banning of "The Finished Mystery," which coniaina the interpretation of th� Biblical boohs of Ezekiel and Revelation, we see, as it. were, a reflection of that which many had hoped belonged to a darker past, when Bibles were banned and burned publicly, and when religious intolerance Rtalked through the land.
