But it to at least debatable whether the ultimate good of the Russian people will be subserved by even world charity at this time. Unquestionably those people en dured severe oppression under the old csarlst regime, however, wh#r*. as In the vast Russian 'Stîmaln. the mass of the population was little of It any better than half civilized, it Is a question whether a despotic form of government Intelligently. even though firmly administered was not the best that could be de vised for the effectual Introduction of civilisation Into that heterogen ecus mass, and the gradual «man c I pat Ion of the people from barbaric I go ranee and superstition. The readiness with which the Im practtcal theories of radicalism as taught by Lenlne and his associates were occepted in preference to the moderate democratic doctrines pro poeed by Karensky andl the constlt uent assembly to proof enough of the Utter Incapacity of th# Russian peo ple as a whole to distinguish be tween enlightened government and anarchy.

FEWER AUTOS County Assessor Reports License Ap plications for Autos Lesi Trucks Show Slight Gain. A glance over the automobile li cense books of the county assessor for the year 1921 shows a total of 263 cars. 49 trucks and! five motor cycles to have been licensed for op eration within Clearwater county, a decrease of 13 cars and an Increase of 12 trucks and three motorcycles over the year 1920. But a very few new cars were sold within the coun ty during 1921 and the decrease in licenses sold is said to be due to the fact that a number of cars were never taken out for use. several have been scrapped and several re moved from the county. The in creased number of trucks is mainly due to new purchases, while the purchase of new cars was not suf ficient to offset the decrease in their number ascribed' to the above causes. The total revenue collected from this source in 1921 was 65, 266.78 and in 1920, 65515.08, or 6248.30 more than in 1921. Ac cording to law, all of the revenu» derived from this source goes to the maintenance and construction of highways, divided, 75 per cent to the village or highway district with in which the owner resides or the vehicle is operated and the remain ing 25 per cent to the state. A comparison of the books for the two years shows there were ln 1920 150 $15 licenses sold, ln 1921 177; 1920 620 licenses, 146. 1921, 14?; 1920 $30 class, five, 1921, three; 1920, 640 class, 12, and the same number for the year 1921. In 1920 there were seven dealers licensee sold, in 1921, three. In 1920 there were 14 transfers madfe and 37 chauffeur's licenses sold and in 1921, 75 transfers and 15 chauf feur's licenses.
