Canada.—Mr. W. L. Mackenzie King was appointed, in July, 1900, editor of the "Labor Gazette,” the organ of the newly-created Department of Labor of Canada. He has since been appointed Deputy Minister of Labor for Canada. Mr. King was born December 17, 1874, at Berlin, Canada. He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1895 with the degree of B. A., having received first class honors in Economics, Political Science and History throughout his course. During the year 1895-96 he was on the staff of the “Toronto Globe." In 1896 he received the degree of LL. B. from the Law Department of the University of Toronto. He was Fellow in Economics in the University of Chicago during the year 1896-97. While in Chicago he was a resident of Hull House and assisted Dr. Henderson in his book on “Settlements.” In 1897 Mr. King prepared a report on the methods adopted in Canada in the carrying out of government clothing contracts. This report was made the basis of the "fair wages " policy since adopted by the Canadian Government. During the years 1897-99 he held resident fellowships in Economics in Harvard University, and in 1898 received the degree of M. A. from that institution. He spent the year 1899-1900 in England and on the Continent as a traveling Fellow of Harvard. In June, 1900, he received an appointment as Instructor in Political Economy in that university. This he resigned to accept the editorship of the “ Labor Gazette.” For the past couple of years he has been making a special study of home industries, public contract work and the sweating system in America and in Europe. During his stay in Europe he was commissioned by the Canadian Government to prepare a report on the methods adopted in European countries to suppress the sweating system in connection with public contract work. He has written:

MINING ENGINEERS AND GEOLOGISTS, who have occasion to work along economic lines, often feel the need of a compend of economic geology covering the ground briefly and in a methodical manner. Such a work is supplied by the Syllabus of a Course of Lectures on Economic Geology, prepared by John C. Branner, Ph. D., and John F. Newson, A. M., of Stanford University, a second edition of which has recently appeared. The numerous and orderly bibliographical references here given afford as complete a treatment of the subject as the nature of the subject and the necessary condensation of a syllabus will permit. The book consists of a series of headings and brief notes which serve for the most part rather to indicate what should be studied, than to provide any large amount of the detailed information which is to be obtained by aid of numerous references to the literature. The syllabus consists of two parts: (1) An introduction containing notes on the relation of mineral deposits to industry, a brief consideration of the topographic methods and the usual discussion of the classification, origin and features of ore deposits; and (2) a consideration of mineral deposits under the heads of their metals and other useful constituents. Each subject is in general subdivided according to the subtopics: uses, ores, mode of occurrence and distribution, especially in the United States, although these subtopics are not uniformly adhered to, metallurgy and other subjects being introduced in some cases. The work is well illustrated and the illustrations are well selected. An unusual feature is large number of curves, showing production from year to year of the various minerals in different countries. By use of this work one can get at a moment's notice references to literature bearing upon almost any subject connected with mineral deposits, and herein lies its chief value.
It is much to be regretted that errors of the baldest kind, due apparently to haste in compilation, are so numerous as largely to destroy any value the book might have as a work of reference. It may not be used safely by itself, but only in conjunction with some such standard treatise on ore deposits as that of Phillips or Davies. 1 Contributed by Mr. H. W. NICHOLS, of the Field Columbian Museum, Chicago. MR. CARPENTER'S new book ou South America was written for the entertainment and instruction of the reading public. The author did not aim to attract the specialist, but rather to give in journalistic style the observations of a traveler. He tells of a journey of 25,000 miles, extending entirely around the continent, including stops at all the chief cities and excursions to many interior points. Mr. Carpenter asked a great variety of questions of all whom he met, and he tells in an interesting way of the results of his inquiries and observations. Naturally the range of subjects is wide, and any one desiring recent information on South American conditions will find some facts along almost any live of inquiry, whether it be geographic, economic, political or social. The author discusses the social condition, both of the Parisian-mannered populations of the capital cities, and of the Patagonian savages, to whom white man's clothing is proving fatal. The book confirms the prevalent opinion that in practice the South American republics are not republics at all, but are ruled by ambitious leaders, who have established virtual dictatorships under the mask of republican forms.
Economic matters receive considerable space, and it is shown that there are great natural resources yet to be utilized. If their development continues it will be because of the activity of the foreigners who already control the bulk of business affairs, the native white race devoting itself chiefly to politics.
There is a good index, which, together with a careful selection of chapter headings, renders it easy to make topical reference to the large fund of information contained in the book.
BARON PIERRE DE COUBERTIN is too omniscient, he hurts our pride. In the preface to “France Since 1814" he tells us that we know nothing about the real bistory of France in this century; that we have been repeating idle tales, believing in invertebrate legends, and neglecting that metaphysical interpretation of French history which alone is the truth. The only compensation for this is his equally omniscient way of telling the French people that they have always exhibited a peculiar incapacity to profit by their successes, a tendency to lose in victory the force gained in struggle. If the foreigner is lectured so is the Frenchman, and very likely both deserve it.
But M. Coubertin's book is a failure. It is too general and dogmatic for the scholar, too metaphysical and obscure for the people.
