An importanl measure intiuduc-ud by
Attoniey-tielicrul Bowser during Ihe
post week was tlie Fire Insurance fsjit.
lln bill is intended to do uwoywilli

at tbe same time to scout greater

with no odiccs here lorncrly escaped
taxation, while the lorui offices 'paid

ies musl pay tbe same, Thus both
will be placed ou an even I',, r and
competition will not be excluded. The
bill also provides (ur tljc establishment of a fire insurance department
with a superintendent lor the province.

it is quite likely that thc propopcij section will end wilh Ibo threat.
