- iVic. cens"s ot 1900 shows that there
ar* not far from 2/00,000 children in-

What 'we are trying to reach is
child labor in min s, facto.i a and

The" census   does   not   show how,
many thi dr;n under 15 years of age
are engaged in this form of slavery:
It would'be bad enough if„we could:

SATUHDAY,  JULY 27, 1907
Heal estate in Edmonton must have
been great bis.-'   Jnst  now  a slunk
exists and moat of the sharks are taking
.« rest.   The city has stopped all work
on its new street railway and other
improvements for want of monev thev
say, and just at present there are a large
numbers out of work in different trades,
and Kdmonton is apliicc. for the wage
earner to steer'clem- of for awhile.
The mines in this "vinicity produce
lijrnite coal of rather a poor quality. At
present the  principal   uiaikut  is  the
Canadian Northern," Kail way  and llie
city of Edmonton.   Mining so far has
been carried on in a primitive fashion
along tin*, hanks of the Sibkatchewan
'j river.    Jl    *,. , - ■     'i        n ■       '.-,''.-,„
"I    At Marin vii'c the coal is being mined I    Ev-**'"y mother of small children knows
J from shafts,'althouiih the deepest shaft j how  l*itiil are the   summer; months.
, The firat mayor ol Fernie was elected
on a "platform of his own making which
declared him- to favor municipal
ownership of water, light and telephone
plants; hut he repudiated* the whole
job lot bf election promises and put the
city to an expense of nearly $3,000 to
prevent.the carrying out of ore of
these projects. -.Yet he would speak of
those Italians as "hoboes". , The

A, larger surplus than has been is
announced for the fiscal, year ending
- June 30 by, the British Columbia
government. Even its friends of the
opposition acknowledge, if they are fair
that the government has been conduct'
ed on a business-like basis i-ince Premier
McBride took' the =reins.—Phoenix
Pioneer.-      _>• ••
The Ledger does hot wish to quarrel
* with the Pioneer, or the government.
The Pioneer is endeavoring to praise
but the Ledger wishes to remind its
' worthy contemporary that a surplus that
is larger than ever and which is made
up of cash received from the alienation
of timber.lands at more than the yearly
ground rent "charged for them is not
,   an indication of a business administration bnt the reverse.   The timber lands
of B*.i*i**li  Columbia are fast slipping
from the hands of the province into the
"hand.-, of private individual.-, who.are
.  paying large sums for them but these
, large sunis do not go into the provincial
treasury.   The system of disposing of
the timber lands of this province is the
worst possible system, that could have
been adopted.   The province disposes
of them, not to the highest bidder but
to  the ' man who stakes them and it
charges him. a ground  rentof such
,   proportions as to make it impossible tn
hold them for future use. ..The staker
* must" dispose of the lands because he
cannot hold and operate them.   Thc
—i-man-who-buyB'them off-the staker-pays
a big price to him for what he has done
and then having paid this big price and
having to pay an excessively high
ground rent, the new owner proceeds to
take off his timber as rapidly as possible
" , and 'vitliout any regard whatever to
rcni'v ing tho timber or protcctiuj- 'the
• younger growth.   His high ground rent
.,   compels him to realize as rapidly as
possible. Every square mile he de
yiwUeij lie throws up as" useless to
■ him nnd stops that ground rent. The
I'.esu.i of, such ;i pnlicyis to get into the

leaves a hole on the surface. It appears
that when the coal is taken out the

How Ik Canadian North
West Looks te an
1 ,
Weyburn, Saskatchewan, June 17.—
Western Canndh hns been advertised as
heading, the procession vn- America in
, the matter of tnxation, nnd the western
provinces lmve In fnct taken one step in
the right direction—though , a short
step. Ij" They lmve abolished luxes on
farm Improvements. But If they stop
here tl.ey will have done little to command^ admiration." Their latid tax Is
not nil ad valorem tuff,. It is uniform
°on nll'jfarms. according to area, whether
the value bo $5 or 956'per acre. The
towns und,villages arc bound-to the
old personal property.,la* as firmly as
are those in the States, ■
Tho Provincial Inhd tax hero Is only
$8 per quarter section, which offers hut
a slight' che'ck to Yhe holding of'Idle
lands for speculation, To this, to be
sure, must bo'added school and road
taxes,'- but tlioi- aggregate, perhaps
amounting to ten cents nn ncrc annually, ii not operating" b* prevent alien
and rion resident .land-owning to any
appreciable extent.
Many of the towns are growing
rapidly, and are taxing themselves and
Issuing bonds for public Ii.rpr6vemcnt»"
' Here the full effect of tho tux or) Industry is seen. 'Though house rent is
enormously high, building lag* and
iiifri behind tin* nncil Everybody- who

Perlinps the heaviest burden of all

ao lo 40 per more costly than il
might otherwise be, No greater de-
mCjiHtration of the vitality of the Canadian N'nrlhwest could be miked than its
own growth nnd prosperity in the lace
of such violations of economic laws.
The hepe for the future Is the plainness with which tiles'.' things nre
exposed to view. Hundreds of farmers
who came here from the Sink's have
been transformed from protectionists
into radical free traders hy no argument
wagon or the $50 added to the price of
a- binder,' even though those articles
may be manufactured in Canada. Every
farmer is also ready, to defend bis tax
exemption on principles of justice and
sound public policy. . Not one but will
tell you it would not be right to put an
extra tax- on him for increasing the
value of the foreign-owned farm across
the road. Cities 'with charters of their
own-may exempt improvements from
taxation, and sbme, '•_" believe,!have'
done so, The principle once admitted!
the step is short. n_n'd easy to a 'single
tax on land values;'"      .- • ■ '.* ;-.-,, ■■
The most-anomalous condition of, all'
