The Canadian clubj afford an inval- uable machinery for educational work among the Canadian people upon the topics of social and economic import- ance. The spread of tbe Juvenile Court idea is largely due to the facil- ities they have presented. The Con- servation Commission is now co-oper- ating with the new Association of Can adian clubs with a view to a great educational campaign for the suppres- sion of forest fires, excessive destruc- tion of game and fish, and ma ay oth- er evils which threaten toseut up the national resources., of the delegates to the Imperial Press Con- rerence of last year made known the results of their trip to the Canadian iiDS, and the influence thus exerted was perhaps the largest parts pf the iruits of the conference.
