INCOME TAX
APPEAL COURT
-.vlnelal UorstT
First Appeal Kc ... «i an Increased Asessment. —Points
Regarding Land Valuation.—Carlson's Cows Again.
—Many Absentees.
A court of revision und appeal under
the Taxation Act and the I'ublic School Act was held at the court house
on Tuesday morning, with Mr. C.M.
Field as presiding judge of review
nnd appeal.
Mr. N.K. Brown stated that the
provisions of the Act in regurd to
Dffielal notices, had been complied
with, the records of the same being
ou tile.
The Bra; appeal proceeded with was
that of the Kevelstoke General Agencies, for whom Mr. Sibbald appealed. Tbe appeal was against the assessments of S2500 for the N.E. quar
ter ot the N. \V. section of 25 and
IIOOH for the S.E. quarter of the N.
E. quarter of the same property ou
thc ground thut they were over asses
t-i d.
Mr. Sibbald, BWorn, said ihe 40
acre lot was nothing but wild laud.
He paid W50 lor it four years ago,
wh.cn was more than he had every
been able to sell it for. He d d not
object to 82000 assessment fur the
whole out tit, though the city had put
on S2500. He would no more sell it
at that than liy over the moon. He
might be able t.. sell it at a small
part down and the balance In instalments but he would not take his
money In that way. Tbe property
was over assessed. He dil not wunt
to put in a very big kick but he did
not want to be over assessed, as it
now w.es.
Replying to Mr. Brown the witness
Raid be <<iTcrL-fi the land for SlbOO
cash tothe city. It bad cost him
about iWi taxes already and he was
deriving no revenue irom it. There
was no land in that district worth
$1H0 per acre, which was what the
BeSsessmenl   meant.
What do you consider it is worth
per acre? I don't think it is worth
$10 per acre, that is the forty acres.
I ask   for a  reduction.
At wild land rate, at 310 per acre,
the ims ssment would he more, with
out any improvements. Putting it
at wild land rate at your own valuation the assessment would be more.
It is for the court to s ty whether it
Bhould be down ns wild land, as you
say it is, or as real estate. You
claim there are no improvements
there and that it is wild land. The
tax On wild land is four per cent aud
on the present basis it is one half of
one per cent.' 1 say it is over as
Mssed.
Mr. Field—Are there no improve -
rr.cnts on the lG-ucre lot? Simply
thc pipe line, and forty feet is allowed for the government road. 1
appeal against the assessment and
intend to stand by it.
Mr. Field—On what you say, it
should be classed as wild lands.
Mr. Sibbald—What is the govern •
ment valuation on  wild land?
Mr. Field—It is not a government
valuation,  it  is the  assessed     value
Mr. Sibbald—1 don't care what you
assess it as so long as you keep it
down to the value.
Mr. Field—You say forty acres is
put at •'IO, $100, and 18 acres at $50,
$800, and it is worth $1600 at present.
Mr. Sibbald—I will take S1600 cash
now. *
Mr. Field—We will assess the forty
ncres at WOO andthe IB at $1200 aud
class it as wild land.
Mr. Sibbald—If there is any at -
fempt to increase it I Bhall not let
it alone. You have already assessed
it at a certain value, and now you
change it.
Mr. Brown—You have the right to
appeal if you so desire.

who  appealed  against  an  assessment
of 818.45 as excessive, will now     be
assessed at $57,00 in respect of    the
same  property. ?
S. AND MBS CARLSON.
S. Carlson appeared on behalf of
his wife aud appealed against the assessment of ¥1200 for lots 1 and 2,
I lock  two.
Mr. Carlson taid the property was
over assessed. Having been sworn he
said he bought the land :rom the 0.
P.R. for Si>00 and turned it ovel to
bis wife at the same price later.
By Mr. Brown—What would you
take for it? Tne wife does not figure
on selling it.
! would you consider a fair offer for it? There has been no Oiler
tor It and no deciding to sell it.
Are you willing to adm.t the property has increased in value since
you purchased it'.' I have lots in the
city.
Never  mind  the  city.  Do  you consider that this land has increased iu
value since   you     purchased it?   My
lots in the city—
Never mind those, n'-ver mind the
city. All the lots in this vicinity
have been assessed in the same ratio
as tins and you are the ouly one appealing? It belongs to my wife and
she wants to know why it is raised.
Mr. Field—1 think we shall have to
let this stay at $1201). It is uniform
with all others there and almost touching the city limits.
Mr. Carlson—If she is not satisfied,
will there be chance to appeal?
Mr.  Brown—Yes.
Mr. Carlson also appealed against
the assessment of f'MDd for his own
part of the same block of property—
20 acres, less a right of way for the
C.P.R. Under oath he etated that he
had about 13 acres cleared and under
hay. The C.P.R. had a right of way
about four acres.
Mr. Brown—They bought it from
you?—Yes.
What did you get for it?—$12.*i per
acre after fighting them for three
years. I consider they damaged the
balance of my land.
You would consider the 13 acres
of the same value as those you sold
to the C.P.R?—I consider they may
be damaged.
What about the seven acres on the
side of the hill?—I paid S2."> for the
whole and 1 never offered it for sale.
1 don't know what it would sell at
because it has never been put up.—
Thc production should fix the real
value of land.
You would uot accept $2000 for it
today?—I have not thought of selling
Is there anyone prepared to  buy it.
Would you accept it?—I have not
decided on thnt if I saw the $2000 1
might consider it.
Mr. Field—How much do you think
it worth at present?—I have not any
special value.
Do you consider it worth $2000 or
not?—I would not say it was or it
was not.    I look at the  production.
Mr. Drown—We have to get at the
value according to the act. I do not
think you would consider an offer of
$12000 for your place.
Mr. Carlson—I plead for uniform
ussesBinent. A neighbor of mine has
land as good as. mine if it was cleared.
Mr. Drown—Would you trade
your land for his?—Some of mine
may be better located.
Would you trade it?—No.
Mr. Field—Wus not yours the choir
est piece?—Some of it.
Would you be prepared to sell for
)<2000.'—I would like to have a little
time to consider. I think 5100 an
acre for any farming land is fully
what anyone can stand.
Mr. Field—f will put the assessment at $1800 instead of .$2000.
Mr. Carlson—How many days will
I have to app.'al in?
Mr. Field—Tin same as an appeal
to the Supreme court.
0.   0.  BROWN.
In the matter of the appeal of CO.
Brown:—
Mr. Brown (the assessor) said he
would like to call attention to one
or two points in regard to requests
for r.'tums as to property or income
The penalty for neglecting or refus
ing to lill up and forward the rctuen
asked for was a fine on conviction
not to exceed JoOO and for false returns a similiar penalty, with an alternative Of six months. He had
sent out 200 notices requesting re ■
turns and only one man filled in a
return so far us O.P.R, employees
were concerned. There had been con-
ti .1 r-i le talk about the incomo tax
but he would like to say if those who
made so much noise would go to tho
oilier and have the matter explained
to them be did not think there would
be so much kicking. People did not
understand the Act and did not want
to und island it, and they stood off
leal] sort of remarks about
n in -. • ry ng to do his duty
They forget that the government required the C.P.R, or any employer to
furnish statements of their employees earn m;s and to make affidavits
that  tbey  wer-j correct.   Ihe  C.P.R.
bad done that. If mistakes had hoen
made the department was quite willing to rectify them. This appeallant
bad enter d an appeal but hud not
made any attempt to prove it. He
would like to call the courts attent -
Ion to tbe. fuel that he had been re-
'i'i st d from headquarters next year
i1 necessary to take action against
people who did not comply with the
terms of the Act and to make an ex.
ample as it was felt that when such
notices were Bont out it was only reasonable and right that they should
receive attention, lf there was no
Income taxable people should say so
•hi the form and return It. In future
Lho Act regarding notices would be
carried out a little more cIobcIv than
it had  been  In Ihe past.
Mr. Field—I quite agree with that.

TIMBER ROYALTY
READJUSTMENT
Hon. W. R.  Ross Explains Mew Measure — Lts%i.ea to
Settle Uncertainty and Promote Welfare oi   lncufctry
In introducing the Timber Royalty
Readjustment Bill in the Victoria
Parliament, the Hon. v.\ R. Ross
said:
A Bill h..s been introduced, a id Is
now pending before this Legislature,
which will s.ttle the vexed iiU-.st.ou
of royalty readjustment, This Royalty re a ljUStment B.ll for which I am
and am glad to be pers...n.,lly respon
Bible,  J-s    li Be    iir.-.   .h n„s:
It gives a fair and just measure of
certainty to timber license holder.,,
and therefore stability to our lumber
industry. It somewhat iucre.is.s pie-
sent returns to the government Irom
timber royalty, and provides for greater and greater increases in the
future; but the most fundamental
thing In this bill lies in its recognition of the profit sh<ir.ng principle—
in its recognition of the profit sharing principle—In its recognition of
the rightthe right of the people of
British Columbia to share in the
increasing vulue of their own timber
property.
This bill is the product of several
jvars of agitation and of more than
a year of definite consideration of
ths wholj royalty pioblem. This
Consid ration has involved a thor -
ough and practical investigation by
the Forest Branch of n,y department
into lumber values an.i lumber costs,
whose differences, less a margin of
fair profit to the lumber operator,
spells stumpage values.
The consideration if the royalty
question has involved in the aggrn -
gate weeks of discussion. It has been
approached by the government with
lairness and unflinchingly; and I am
glad to say that it has been appro -
ached with remarkable measure of
fair dealing by most of the lumber -
men themselves.
Now, I shall devote a few momcntB
to setting forth in a somewhat human, rather than in a sevtrely official way, just how I personally have
approached this whole problem. I
have never looked upon this question
of royalty Increase is a mere question of money raising, I have looked
upon it ruther as a fundamental ques
tion in public forest policy. To mc
it has three great purposes in view,
not the object of taking from the industry the highest possible maney
revenue. These three great purposes
are as follows:
First, so to settle this royalty ques
tion as to ensure to the highest prac
tical degree the welfarj of all the
people in British Columbia as far aB
the forests contribute to their wel -
fare, and that is very far.
Second, so to handle this question
that the government co-operates to
the fullest legitimate extent in estab
Hailing and maintaining a permanent
and profitable lumber ;r dustry in our
province; and, third, so to handle
this matter, as to make forest conservation not a remote but a nearer
and more probable thing upon all
timber limits.
For in the last analysis, the test
of the success of the Forest policy of
this government will lie, not merely
in the present productiveness, but
still more In the future productive -
ness of the forests themselves.
We have in our province vast areas
of mountain forest lane1 suited best
to  forest  purposes.   It  is  obviously i
the dhect duty and responsibility of
our government to ke.-p that forest
land under product.ve grow ng Ior
ests; aud that c uc .....on has been
ever prominent i. my mud in this
vuole royalty  matter.
lou will observe therefore, that
ihe incivas d revenue fiom the forest
provided for by tb s . ill has been
treuted at less important thau other
and more v.tal public cjnsidurations
Thar the b.h w:i. increase revenues
is a happy result; but ! would consid
er it an unhappy result'ware it ne-
coini-l s'l.'d hy violation of any one
if the three great pr nclplea i have
just set forth; the welfare of the peo
,.le, 'h' w Ware    of   the lumbermen,
nd .be' welfare of the forests.
I say with some pride and pleasure
that this bill is not the result of the
. lie ition to Briti h Columbia
wholesale of some p an w-jrked out
in some other-country. I have taken
into account the approach which all
other countries have made upon this
problem of dispos ng profitably of
the public timber. From some Ihavo
gained help; from others I have gain
ed nothing; but in the aggregate this
bill ty pities the independent, original
consideration of our home problem,
it is not a borrowed measure, taken
from somewhere else with the hope
that it may lit our local c nsitious .
It is a bill drafted In British Columbia, based on a knowledge of British
i olumbia conditions, and my belief-
is that it will work to the satisfaction of British Columbians.
I think I may say without exagger
ation that this is not merely a royalty measure. It is a forcBt conser -
vatiou measure; the second great for
est conservation measure which has
been inaugurated by thiB government
in recent years. First came the inauguration of our Forest Branch,
which is already an alert, ellicicnt
instrument, directed hy alert, cllici -
ent zealous men, in the development
protection and wise use of forest resources.
Now comes, as I hope will come,
the passage of this royalty bill,
which settles, and settles definitely,
and settles fairly, the uncertainties
which in recent years, loth for operator and investor, have disturbed
somewhat the stability of the flnan -
ces of our lumber industry.
I hope that in thc years to come,
and not in the remote years cither,
we may take further great steps forward in our forest conservation policy. That policy, as I see it, has
these great objects in view:—To protect our forests; to get them wisoly
and profitably used, and to keep them
coming. Thc last calls for a fair
and reasonable measure of practical
forestry. I have some plans for that
which I think will get, with profit to
tho lumbermen, thc better assurance
of a second crop upon the timber Um
Its; and within a year I shall be ready to announce those plans. But before doing so I will discuss them ,
and modify them if necessary, If I am
convinced of the wldom of thc medl-
fications, after working them out
with British Columbia lumbermen
themselves.
I see no reason why British Colum
bia should not lead all  other parts
Mayor    McKinnon    presided  at    a
no t.ng of the council held on Friday
night   in  the  city  ball,      when  there
were also present Aldermen McSorley
Bourne, Needham, Bell, Pradolini and
otnythe, with the city cleik,  Mr.  W

Mr.  Manning  mentioned  the matter
of the request for a grant of SlOd to-
,...i...-. L.i,' uApenses of    holding the
. ..... rs    convention in    Reve.stoke
this year which was before the council at its last meeting.   As a school
uuurd  ihey had no more to do   with
that convention than the Agricultural   Association,   uut  as citizens    the
the mciUeicrs  .vere qu.te willing that
buch  grunt should  be  made.   As      a

Mr. ...uun.ug said it depeuded on
the arrangements. If the council was
uot getting its estimates out for a
coupie of moULhs the board might
nuow by then to what extent they
could reduce the estimate, or ruther
what amount it would have in haud
for it could not reduce thc estimate.
one the board could not state that
ani.unit just oil hand. There were a
great many things needing attention
out they might kuow exactly the balance available by the time the council struck the tax rate.
The Mayor—How much is for furniture in the high school.
Mr.  Manning—Nothing  of  the  $28,
000.
The Mayor—I thought part was for
furniture for the commercial cla6s.'
. ..jior—Not a cent of that amount.
Mr. Manning—We have other arrangements.
Thc  Mayor—You  mentioned  that,
Mr. Manning said that was one of
the items they expected to take out
of thc money they had over. There
were several thingB they had to ar
range for which would take soinc-
time and for sometime they Could Dot
say how much  they would have.
The Mayor— Improvements &',I0
and  repairs $1000.
Mr. Manning said the most important work would he thc lloors of tho
four lower rooms in Central school
and the upper hull. Last year they
finished the lower hall. Home of the
plaster needed repair and the work
referred to as improvements was chiefly permanent cement work in the
boiler houBe. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The Mayor said the i nly point was   '*)S.SM J"! S IJB H ■ *  «. ■ ■ £ ,'g ■)
that this seemed an awful lot to take   n| m
out of one ycur's revenue to under «J
take all these items at tbe same ■
time. He did not say the work was ■
not  necessary  but  it    appeared     to eg]
would be false economy to put the
work off. This was jus* patch work
and was only postponing the inevitable'. .Next year possibly they would
have to overhaul the entire school .
As far as. the boiler room was concerned the boilers had never been
touched since they  were put in.
The .Mayor—What boiler is there
there.
Mr. Manning—1 mean the furnace
in the basement.
The  Mayor  said  apart  from       the
government  grant  the City's share ot
i in.- expenditure meant about  $3300
extra out of the rates than List year
Mr. Manning—According to the chil
dren we are taking into school there
must  be  "xtra revenue.
The Mayor—All land Inside the city
limits was <a8seSBed last year. We
haven't   got   any  i.e  re    and.
Mr. Manning—Tin t - ni.iy he some
more Improvements.
The Mayor a Id the r luncil w ul 1
do what  it could in connection with
this matter.   It  would  have  to      he
left to the council.    It     would raise
the      SClle.eel      t 11 '<      f. •!"      fill  la',      PUTpOSM
to about I11 in I, a little m re than
1 mil more tban it v. i- 1   il  y ar.
Mr. Taylor—School c\pe i
The    Mayor—Yes,  ^cn-u'l    exi
will raise the tax about 'J mil.
Mr. Manning—We expect we shall
bave about S1MX> over but Just exactly how much we can't say. We
have about S2O00 now but we (have
furniture to 1. lectrlo light to
lay for.
Tlie Mayor—We hope y u will irive
us all asSistabC n . ping the rate
down.
Mr.     Manning—Yes,     at the same
time it Is falM economy t •      post-
t  any Ledger.
The Mayor—It looks as if it had
taken an awful  lump suddenly.
Mr. Manning—Tell them the number of children has taken an awful
jump  too.
The deputation then withdrew.
HEALTH RKI'ORT
A report from Dr. McLean, medical officer, stated that the town was
now clear of diphth.-ri i and that
quarantine of premises consequent up
on recent cases had  been completed.
AUDITORS
A  letter    was read     from  Messrs.
Stein   o;   Co.,   accepting  the  appointment of Municipal  auditors on terms
previously   mentioned   and   thanking
the council for their appointment.
DEBKNTCRLri.
A formal resolution was passed dealing with the recent sale of debentures at '.'2.J less commission, on tbe
motion of Aid McSorley seconded by
Aid. B'll.
The Mayor  said a  lcttrr  had   been
received  from a  firm   who had  made
an  unsuccessful  offer for city debont-
ui.-   recently   Congratulating   the  council on  the high  price the lust    lot
..f   debentures  sold   had   realised    and
asking      is •!  favor to   be furnished
with the name of tbe buying firm as
tbey had similiar debentures for sale.
This  letter  stated   that  the  price obtained  for  the  Kevelstoke  debentures
was considerably    more    than tbe inquiring firm could offer.
Aid. Bourne thought a better price
might have been o'.tiin d if the
thing had  been  left over for a time.
The  Mayor      said  other  debentures

Aid. Bourne said they were not

The Mayor—That is not the point.

(ITY COUNCIL
(Continued from Pa^o Twol
The Mayor said if they put ►ths
whole thing in a bylaw and paid it
off in seventeen years the total cost
would be something like 855,000,
Aid. Bell—1 figured it out and it
frightened me.
The Mayor thought they could lift,
j the :>l(J,000 note from the bank und
! then reimburse the sinking fund as
opportunity offered. If the council
agreed to that it would save the citizens a lot of money. At present
they were paying six per cent for
money and only getting four froia
the bank on money they had on
hand, Two per cent on $10,000 was
*-00 per year.
Aid.   Hell  said if that  was done and
the.-I len shortage put on the front'
age basis the whole thing would be
cleared off. They could pay $2000 back
to the sinking fund and leave other
councils to do the same. They cauld
make it. a recommendation to following councils to adopt thut plan tu
clear this matter up. in th it W ...
the matter would he disposed of in
five years.
Aid.  McSorley said he was on aim-,
iliur lines at the last discussion     of
this matter but this scheme outlined
now wa.-. an improvement as it would
clear  the      matter      up  in a  definite
time.    All      the      follow.ng    councils ■
would  have to do would be to relm- J
burso  the  sinking fund a portion    of |
the  balance due to it.   If one council
did nut do It another ciuncil   would
have to.
Aid. Hill—It is far better than the I
expense of  a   bylaw.
Aid. Needham—The readjustment of,
the front age tax is going to coat
something. That will bring the ex-
pens• up. 1 propose to leave the
JUDO borage un the general fund as
heretofore.
'I he Mayor—And what about the
proportion of the *I0,0"0.
.'■.'.1. Bell—Aud the extra school expenses.
A Id. Needham—I would rather raise
thc taxes a little than raise the fron-
| tage.
Aid.  Bell said the addition to    the
frontage tax would be about 'Jo cents
| per lot.   That was neither here   nor
i there.
Aid. Needham—Then Ihey would not
i feel  it on the general  tax cither.
The  Mayor—Still there is    a good
deal  of difference to thc public in   a
i 'Jl mil or a 21 or 26 rail rate.
Aid. Hell—fan it be adjusted out
of general  rcvenae?
The   Mayor—Not   unless  you   raise
the tax.
A d.  Bell   I move that we pay   the
810,0 .it of the sinking fund    and
the  HIOO shortage be put upon   thc
frontage basis.   That we pay the310.
0U0 from general  revenue     and relm
burse  the  sinking fund.
Aid.   .McSorley seconded the motion
The Mayor said at present every
yeai the general rate was paying out
J200U, .-11011 shortage and $600 interest. If that amount was put aside
for five years it would pay oft the
$10,0(10. At present they wore paying
82,000 per year and the matter was
not   being settled.
Aid. Needham moved ns amend
ment that the $1400 shortage be paid
out of general revenue this year, and
81000 be paid on the $10,000 note
when it came due. If things went
well in three months time they might
pa]   .'tl another $1U0U on the note.
Aid. Peadolini But we have to fix
tho rate in ndvance.
Aid. Smythe—Can we back tax
those who have benefitted by thc sew
er ?
The MayQr—It is as broad as long
If we back tax it comes to the same
thing, a little more in fact.
Aid.   Smythe—But we can do  it.
Aild. Bourne suggested that they
might let people In arreurs pay oil
the arrears of hack taxes in Instal -
ments. They should have been made
to pay when the debentures were is -
sued.
Aid. Needham—They would not pay
for it  when they had not the sewer.
The Mayor said the proposition
would have to be submitted for legal opinion before it could be proceed with. The Idea was to lift the
note for S10.000 out of sinking fund
money nnd return the money as the
revenue permitted. They must re
member that, the school hoard estimates had increnscd in a| portioning
their  revenue.
(In a vote Aid Bell's motion was
carried, all voting in favor of it except Aid. Needham und Aid.  Mourns.
Aid.   Bourne—I     object,  to  putting
the  $140(1  shortage   on    the  frontage
basis.
Aid.   Needham—So  do  I.
Aid. Smythe—It  has taken   thiB  council •! couple of weeks to settle this
matter,  or to come  to a decision.   It
tnuk   other councils  some  years.   We
•have shown  our  hand  in  two weeks'
timel
Aid.   Needham—It might come     up
again.   Will you buy the cigars if it

of North America, and even our progressive friends to the South of us,
In practical forest conservation, I
realize that we will have to move
quite rapidly to accomplish thut result. But 1 am entirely willing, in
btcc l am eager, to enter mto such
friendly rivalty with forest conservation as our goal.
Now, 1 will discuss in some detail
| not only the policy, but also the
plan of the Royalty Adjustment Bill,
] and 1 will strive to be neither too
t chnlcal, nor t.. fail to take up con-
' i. I e ly and definitely, the procedure
for which this  bill provides.
Thi    R ■;■ • 11 ty  B.ll  comprises     these
four  things-It  lixes  the royalty m-
f r   1915,   and  establishes       a
el of  lumber prices on which futile   increase? will be based.   It   pro-
Bcven  five ie:.r periods for roy-
.1 .. ad ustment; and it provides that
:h of these periods a given per
|   of the  j.rice  increment      for
h  II  be added to the royalty  the
1916, and hold good for five years or
until 1020. Then conies the llrat readjustment based on Increase in tho
actual lumber price of $18.0(1 llxed by
the bill. But before w« take that up
let me sny a word gbout tho general
level of this royalty Increase for the
lirst, fivo years.
li y too high*" might ask
some man of open mind who had not
been fully informed. The central
facts of this adjustment must bo kept
well in mind. In my judgment tuey
are not too high; they merely take
Up a certain amount of slack, and
tbey impose upon the industry bo
small an increase for its raw product
that they cannol fairly lie claimed to
disturb exlsl ng financial conditions,
tuoy   pro-suppose— as any reasonable
man must pre-suppose—that this pored .ef depro »on through which we
have recently passed, and from which
we are already emerging, is a tempor
ry i iln -. Th v |ir suppoBo that In
British Columbia, as In the rest of
the world, the price of lumber will
not continue to fallspasmodically and
that the general tendency will be up
and  not down.
'•Are they too low?" another open
minded man might ask. My belief is
thoy aro not too low. They might
have b?en higher, for the government
had the whip hand, and they might
have been two or three times as
great and still have been well within
the limits of our power. But as I
huve said before, this plan and pol -
icy of royalty readjustment is not
merely a mom y raiser for tho present
not a financial emergency measure to
wring the uttermest farthing out of
the lumbermen, Moreover I say thib
with Btrong conviction based on Im-
partlol investigations:—the financial
< mdit on ■ f ( ur lum' or industry at
Is ii' I s very rosy one. 1 can
say ths : — that in the aggregate,
some of the mills arc making a little
money, and some are losing a little
money, but thc general average, and
i n n - eak ng fro i knowlrdi e of ibe
facts, is to break a little better than
oven, that is at the present moment
A little better than an even break;
that Is in een. r il th ■ 'um' rrm in's
s tuntion t il y if tb-t were m de
by ill consid red royalty increases
merely an even break, or a little below an even break, the result would
be t" deal a body blow to an indust
ry not altogether-upon its feet, although rapidly approaching that condition. War, grave financial stress ,
Bom? unforeseen d in n I for public
funds in the interests of th" public ,
might suggest some such step, but
we face today no  such  conditions.
Now I will take up the progressive
increase in royalty based on percentages of the price increment above the
hi Be level selling price of $16.00. As
vmi will observe, these Increases nre
made subject to thc result of govern-
1 investigation and are applied
.' th ■ end of curb live vers, to hold

INSURANCE.
Aid. Bell reported th it the Finance
committee had  looked  into the question ol Insurance on city properties
and desired to recommend that     all
the policies be gradually adjusted bo
as to fall due in October which would
be a  suitable time and  When  money
irom tax receipts would be available
lu  pay  tliein.   Tbe  idea  w^as that  as
policies fell due tbey  should  he      renewed H'i  an  to  [all due on October I
as it would be better to bave all pol
I icics due at  the  same time,  than      to
I have  them falling  due at  odd  dutes
all  the year round.   Tbey  also  made
[ a   suggestion   regarding   the   apport -
I ioning of the insurance business,    in
eluding a recommendation, that    no
' business should  he given to a     local
: office until  it had done business     in
the city for three years which would
obviate too frequent rearrangements
in accordance with the scheme lor allowing    all local offices a  share      in

in regard to rultivation. H1b taxes
on this land amounted to $2,611 per
acre. If the governn ent expected
this country to go ahead they should
