INK DOMESTIC INTEREST
The success of the War Savings
Campaign, and similar movements is
dependent on the extent to which the
mass of the people are interested in
Ibem. This is a mass movement, an
effort to induce the great body of
those who work for wages and salaries to save aud Invest a portion of
what they receive, (ho conditions being such as to make the plan practicable for them.
.More depends on the SUCCOS of this.
or some such movement, than Is goner
ally realized. II" Canada is to become
financially Independent; If she Is to
keep for her own people the first
fruits of their labor, then she must, as
far as possible, retain within her own
boundaries, the millions of dollars,
which, in (lie form of Interest payments, have annually been going
abroad.
At the outbreak of war Canada was
probably sending abroad in interest
$140,000,000 a year, ln so far as Great
Britain was concerned this amount
has doubtless been reduced, for British investors no doubt had to sell
some of their Canadian securities.
But the annual interest payment to
the United States has been increased,
it being estimated that, during the war
period, American investments in Canada were doubled—that is, they wero
increased from $000,000,000 to $1,200-
000,000.
While in tlie aggregate Canada during the war period increased her
annual interest payment abroad, still,
iu another sense, she went a long way
towards making herself financially
independent, because, while she borrowed $1,600,000,000 for war purposes,
all but $150,000,000 were loaned by her
own people. So. while the interest on
her national debt has risen from
$12,000,000 iu 1914, to between $95,-
000,000 and $100,000,1100 this year, all
but about $9,000,000 of the latter
amount will be paid to people at
home.
This has come about because the
great mass of the people of Canada
have been converted into investors in
Dominion Bonds. It is doubtful whether in 1914 there were 5,000 people
in Canada who held Dominion Bonds;
for, until that time, only one Issue
amounting to $5,000,000 had been
placed in this country. But in the
Victory Loan campaigns of 1917 and
1918 over 1,300,000 $50 Bonds were
sold.
It is desirable that future issues of
such bonds should be taken up at
home; but if they are placed to the
same extent among the masses of the
people It will be because the latter
continue save. How better can they
be kept saving than through the War
Savings plan?
Both from an individual and national standpoint it is desirable that tho
greater proportion of national bonds
should be held by thc body of the
people rather than by a few. The acquiring of a stake in the country will
give them a more abiding Interest in
it, and will promote social contentment in a way that nothing else can
possibly do. In these times of social
unrest those most to be feared are
those without property. They would
destroy for tiny have nothing to lose.
The owner of a War Savings Stamp
is a Dominion Bond holder Just us
much as is the owner of a Victory
Bond. He possesses property that ot
any time may be realized on at Its face
value. He has a double Interest In the
country.
(AMI1
FIRES ARE FOREST
DESTROYERS
In almost every part of Canada, the
camp Hie of picnic nnd fishing parties
continues to destroy more of pub.! :-
owned timber than could be grown by
the planting of scores ot millions of
trees.
From everv direction comes urgent
suggestions that governments start to
re-plant the waste forest areas. This
certain sections of Canada. The main
consideration, however, is to stop the
destruction of timber requiring a century to grow. Planting is a highly expensive alternative to fire prevention.
If camp fires wero invariably extinguished there would be less need of
asking the public treasury to assume
the cost of rebuilding the forests by
the use of millions of seedlings. Camp
fires in Canada have stolen more public wealth than wouud have transported thc guilty campers around the
world on a luxurious free trip. Veteran woodsmen always build their
fires small and build them in a safe
spot, such as along a rocky shore or
on a gravel or sand base, never among
leaves or against a log.
Dominion trade Is rapidly running
back to pre-war standards. Yet the
largely increased debt which war
brought us makes It Imperative, says
the Canadian Trade Commission, that
this should be prevented, and that
pence-time work can be on a war-time
scale.
