Revenue From Forcnts.,
Dr. Judson F. Chirk, Provincial Forester for Ontario, discusses In an firticlo
iii The Caiiadmu Forestry Journal the
question of taxation of woodlands, lie
liau in view not innrely the production
of revenue,' but the adjustment of the
tax so an to prevent destruction and encourage renewal of forests. It has been
tho custom to Include the value of
Btaudinjr timber with that of the soil in
ntJSeflsitijr woodlands.' Thia Dr, Clark
regards as unjust and unwise It is an
incentive to harvest the forest crop
prematurely, so as to sot rid of tbo tax.
The state of Michigan furnish**-} an in-
sructive object-lesson. Six 'million
acres of non-agricultural lands, which
thirty yearn ago carried ono of theflueit
/orestM in tbo world, are lying waste.
The high taxation mado but ono kind
of lumbering possible—the cutting clean
of merchantable wood as fust as it could
be marketed, followed by the abandonment of the rttined tracts to tho State,
tor taxes. The net result was tho
transformation of a, magnificent pine
forest to a wilderness, at a cost of Uim
of millions of dollars to the lumbermen,
becauso of forced hactc iu harvesting,
but at a far greater coRt to the State in
tho total"destruction of tho forest, and
of the basis of a great lninberiiig indus
- trv. .
The tax, says Dr. Clark, should b-
arranged so as to.cucourage tbo preservation of lumber and check improyi*

the inilnexce ol this long time clement;
that the great law of supply and do

will payjliiin to cut with care, io that
he may return after a period of years
for a second crop, or whether tie tax
will eat up the profit of any future yield
that ho may hope for.   In Ontario am!
Quebec, the conditions are best, tbo
irround rent being only $3 pe*r square
mile.   In some recent sales in Ontario
and in Dominion lauds cast of Yale, D.L
C.,,the tax is 85; iii New Brunswick, $8;
in Dominion lands west of Yale, $32; in
British Columbia, $9a and $160.
. Dr. Clark thinks that tbo exorbitant
tax of 3100 a mile may have beeu im-
posodwitha   view of developing the
lumber industry; the result will be to
develop It out of existence, as in Michi
gan, aud British Columbia may do as
Michigan is doing today*—import at a
'coot of bcvctitl times the former soiling
price a poorer eubstitutc for tlie billions
of feet of timber which, a few years ago
were sold practically, at cost of loggiii}!
and milling.   In Ontario we have not
the high ground reiit, but wo havo the
bonus.   It is disadvantageous to the
legitimate (limber man as distinguished
tiom tho speculator.   It locks up capital which should be invested.iu the development of his business, and   it cn;
courages bim to get  tho capital back
by rapid, Indiscriminate and improvident cutting.   "There  Is uo form of
sale so conducivo to conservative lum,
bering of lorost properties with a view
to their development as producers of
logs In perpetuity as tho placing of the
whole payment, of the   lumberman's
price for the logs as-stumpsge   dues of
so much per thousand,to bo paid when
the logs ara cut.   This is not only the*,
oioiicallv indisputable, but has in practical lumbering   operations    in both
public aud private lauds been abundantly proven to be satisfactory to buyer
and seller, and of.the utmost advantage
to tho forest.",
This is the Provincial Forester's case,
and ono is almost tempted to say that
it is conclusive. At all events, ho
throws the burden of proof on the
shoulders of those who oppose the reform."     '   '

Dr. Clark made It very clear in his
article thnt the present,methods aro

TRIED TO CONCEAL' CASH
Equitable Fooled tlio State de-
purtinen by untrue Statement of
Assets.
New York, Nov. 18—Through tho
"testimony of an employee of tho equitable Life, Mr. Hughes, at the insurance
investigation, mndo it plain that for
years dummy loans havo been carried
by tho linn of Kulin, Loob & Company
In sums aggregating millions of .dollars
at the end of each fiscal year, their sole
purpose being to make it appear iu tlie
company's statements to tho Stato In-
qurance Department that its collateral
loan Investments were greater than
.hey actually were, and its cueh assets
less.
Loan's To Clkkkh.
In some cases these fictitious loans
were mado secretly to the liim of Kuhu,
Limb & Company, and in other cases to
individual members or clerks in tbe
employ of th.-itconcern.o By-such methods no less than 910,250,000 was transferred from the cash account to the collateral loan statement at tho end of 1901,
while those for previous years aggregated nine millions annually.
Contkai. Cash.
Insurance companies consider it un-
pesirable to exhibit an excessive surplus of universal cash.   Deposits in its
favored   banks   and   trust companies
commonly draw only 2 per cent interest,
while collateral loans are usually good
for double that rate.   The practice indulged, in by.the Equitable has beeii so
guarded by the   actual   exchange  of,
checks, aud certificates of deposit'* that
it could not be classed as fraudulent,
but its intent to deceive tho Stato Department, counsel for the Armstrong
committee maintained; is obvious.

- It is,,perhaps, best to say, that in every respect—china, cuisine, and attend-

luxuriousness of.the remainder of this
regal train, and has won, as   the dining car service., has always helped to
win the title""The Comfortable Wny,'.
for the Great Northern Railway.    The
new dining car service of the ''Oriental
Limited" equals in beauty, design and
interior furnishings anything which is
operated on any transcontinental., Jine.--
Every luxury which a .first-class hotel
or club affords in the.wiiy ol service is

' A Warning To Horses.    -
'Never let your horse   drink out qf ;i

... j "
one of a them;*your nag, drinking afterward, is apt 10 take glanders himself.
I'd. discharge any workman of mine
who risked my horses health at a public
trough. ,'''"     v
"Do you see thia bucket? , Well, I
ill ways carry'il, and when my horses
need water,-I fill it at the stand pipe that
feeds the public trough, lliey drink
Iheh, without undergoing any danger
out of their own private cup, as you
might say. .''■->
7'I think public drinking-troughs
ought to be" abolished. In their place
we should have public standpipes, or
faucets. Then every wagon would
carry a bucket, out of his own bucket
every horse ^ would drink, "and the
spread of glanders would1 cease."
