The government has decided to

purposes of the war. It is intended
to impose a lax on incomes above a
certain amount and quite probably tro
further. The. enforcement wiil likely
be next. year.
Under lhe law as it stands al presenl, the government gels one-fourth
of business profits between 7 lud 15
per cent., one-half between 1. ami 20
per cent, and three-quarters above _0
per rent.
Last year's taxation was substantially productive. By its operation
Ihree firm* ronlribiiled amounts in
excess of $600,000, two in excess of
$300,000, four above $200,000, and 14

Your Telephone Will

Do you always use your telephone? Travelling, even a
short a distance, takes time. Your telephone saves minutes
and saves energy. It matters not whether the partv you want
is one mile or a hundred miles away, the telephone takes you
in a moment.
Don't travel miles to do business, speak for a few minutes
by telephone.   Use the telephone instead of writing; written

Letters to the Editor
Editor Review ���
Dear Sir, ���Re gasoline supplies,
I read in the current issue of your
journal that Mr. Enitle is reported
to have stated that " il i.s owing to
consumers holding back empty
barrels so long and poor 'transportation facilities that the shortage
exists."     With   the   first   named
statement I have of course nothing
to do, but if this is a contributing
factor in the rece.it scarcity of gns-
oiine in Courtenay consumers have
only themselves to blame for the
iucotiveiiiencics they have been suffering, But, ns far as transportation over the V.. & X. Ry. is concerned, I have taken tbe trouble to
refer to my records, which show
that in the period  covering April-
i _r*
at the  corner  of   Union   Street  and
the   Cumberland,   Road,   Courtenay.
For  particulars apply
July only 5 carloads of gasoline
have been carried over this line and
that the actual time occupied from
the date they were billed to date of
arrival iu this city was approxi.
mately 2 |._ days in each case.
This I maintain is about the quickest despatch that anv railroad
could effect in a similar haul, ami
it is obvious, therefore, that Mr,
Kuicie will have to seek some other
explanation for the trouble than
transportation delays
Personally I consider the prevailing fashion of making there general
and irresponsible statements is very
much !���) be deplored and it would
help to adjust matters more quickly
and effectively were active steps
token to arrive at tiie real sent of
the difficulty.
