REVENUE INCREASES
CANADIAN customs revenues are
gaining over last year though there is no
gain in imports. Stamp taxes are producing more revenue than was expected. This
goes to show that Mr. Fielding's tariff increases were greater than the reductions.
It is also shown that even when direct
taxes are raised to the utmost it was not
possible to make any decrease in the customs taxation. It does not matter much
which whether we call the present system
a revenue tariff or a protective tariff, since
it is evidently both. Moreover, there is
nothing incidental either in the protective
or the revenue features. Both are intentional, and both are necessary.
While there are sufficient reasons for exclusive immigration regulations, Canadians do not forget that the few people of
India now living in Canada are British
.subjects by birth, and not in the same
political category as foreign Asiatics.
ARTHUR    GRIFFITH
THE   FIFTH   JURY
IT has not been the good fortune of
Arthur Griffith to see the full fruit of his
memorable decision to promote peace in
Ireland by accepting home rule within the
empire. One of the most determined of
the former Sinn Fein leaders in former
days, he took his full share of the penalties.
But he was also the first of that southern
Irish to see that his people might obtain
by negotiation all the powers of self-government that were necessary to satisfy
their reasonable ambitions.
As president of the Dail Mr. Griffith
has recently been less conspicuous than the
premier of the free state. But the party
leader had from him the silent support of
a strong and resolute man, with great influence over their former associates. For months
they perplexed the British government and the
world outside by their apparent inaction in the
face of all kinds of aggression from De Valera and
his followers. It is now conceded that their
strategy was sound. When the free state government deemed the time ripe for decisive action the
republicans had put themselves so far wrong that
they were left almost without support from responsible people in the country, and had alienated
most of the sympathy of the Irish abroad. It will j
be understood some day what share Arthur Grif-;
fith had in these councils. At present it is known
that he and the premier worked cordially together.
If Mr. Collins has been found in the end effective
in military acticn, it seems certain that Mr.
Griffith was sagacious in advice.

1921 show
AN AGGREGATE VALUE OF $734,259,619
The substantial progress of the Mining Industry in this Province
Is strikingly exhibited in the following figures, which show the value
of production for successive flve-y.ar periods:  For all years to 1895,
inclusive, $94,547,241; for five years,  1896-1900,   $57,607,967;   for
five years, 1901-1905, $96,507,968; for five years, 1906-1910,   $125,-

PRODUCTION DURING LAST TEN YEARS, $336,562,897
Lode mining has only been in progress for about 33 years, and
not 20 per cent, of the Province has been even prospected; 300,000
square miles of unexplored mineral-bearing land are open for prospecting.
The mining laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees
lower than those of any oth.r Province in the Dominion, or any
Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, 89-
curity of which is guaranteed by Crown Grants.
