Mr. Campbell announced that the
Dominion government was considering a proposal for a copper bounty
for Uritish Columbia, which would
place this province in control of the
copper as well as the zinc output o!
Canada. At present the Dominion
was producing about 30 per cent of
the lead c. nsumed in munitions manufactured In Canada, practically all
this percentage coming from .iiitish
Columbia.Unless the pro/in.e increased its production it wis -. ttest-on,

The "lithographic cut" episode has
evidently touched our contemporary
in a sore place judging from the frothy expostulations and dictionary definitions it has "liberally" jumbled
together to mislead its readers.
In order that our readers may   en-
joy   the shuffle our esteemed is mak- •
ing    we reprint their cut (e) original t
remark.   "In  looking over the files of
the  Mail-Herald   which  contained   the
time worn  lithographic cut of   Hon.
Thos. Taylor." Tbe Review strenuously endeavors to convince its readers that because a lithograph may be

As thc Review will not tell tbe!
truth and thereby admit its ignor-
ance, we must reluctantly state that
(1) the cut, in question is NOT a lith-j
..graphic cut ; (2) and, as we said
hefore the .Mail-Herald CANNOT

Antimony is another metal 'tat
greatly advanced in price owing to
demands for war purposes. Its principle use in war material is to harden
lead bullets used in shrapnel. During
the war the price advanced Irom 18c
to 55c a pound for the best brands,
and from 10c. to 39c. for the ordinary
brands of antimony.
Antimony  usually  occurs  in  nature
as stibnite, the sulphide of antimony,
and     is a common mineral in British
Columbia,  occurring  association  with
; lead and zinc ores.   It does not how-
lever,  as a rule,  occur in large quantities,     but attempts are now   being
, made in a few places to sort it    out
from its    associated    minerals.     Two
cars of antimony ore are reported   to
have been Bhlpped from the Slocan to

whilst re-reading the other day Sir
Herbert MUxwell's "Life of Welling-

that I have thought some of your .
readers might care to have lt recalled
to them. Writing to his mother ln
August, 1807, Wellesley, after describing the operation against the
Danish army and th i failure proper-
ly to co-operate of the German contingent under Gen. von Linsingen, I
goes on to say: "I can, however, assure you that, from the General of
the Germans down to the smalleat j
drum boy in their legion, the earth
never groaned with such a set of
murdering, infamous villains." "They
murdered," he says further on, "robbed and Ill-treated the peasantry
wherever they went."   I am, sir,

Every province in the Dominion
ought to have as a cardinal feature
of school instruction increased attention to physical development of the
hoys and girls, and .especially military
training 'for the boys. The Australian compulsory training system applies to boys from 12 years up. In
Canada there has been a certain amount of attention given to company
drilling in the public schools, and attached to the militia is a fairly large
body of cadets from the collegiate institutes and the higher public school
classes. But only the larger cities
have adopted any degree of military
training in the schools, whereas the
need is for a state, system on the
Australian lines. The time has passed in Canada, we hope, when any but
cranks wlll decry military drill in the
schools. The high jiercentagc of j>hy-
i-ically unlit among those who apply
for enlistment points to the need for
more attention to the physical de-
pelopri.ent of boys while they are of
school age. Further, it iB desirable
to develop robustness of character in
our scbool boys. Assuredly tho hundreds of thousands of ex-soldiers Canada will have .after the war will throw
their influence toward systematic military drilling in the schools. If spectacle^ such as that at a hockey match
a few nights ago, when a crowd of
young "sports" refused to listen to
B recruiting officer, are to be avoided
the educating process must start in
early youth. If what we know now to
be the real test of citizenship)—that is
willingness to serve in a crisis—is to
be satisfied by the men af the future,
they must be prepared for it in the
bchooi period of their lives. The Australian system turns out junior cadets at a time when the moral and
physical nature is most plastic, and
the continuation of training in later
years ls chiefly of a confirmatory
type. "i
We have seen how the German educational system has been used to
build up national strength. The monstrous perversion of that educational
system to the ends of ruthless tyranny would not have been possible under popular government. We ought to
use our educational system to build
up stronger feelings of citizenship and
more stalwart British Canadianism.
Military training in the schools is one
