At the city council meeting last
(Might Mayor W. A. Foote auuouuced
that the internment camp on Mount
Ttevelstoke was nearly ready tor the
Teceptiou of the aliens who were expected tu arrive within a week or
ten days. He thought that the city
council should show its appreciation
of R. F. Green's eflorts to secure the
camp  for  the  city.
Aid. tourne agreed that the coun*
ell should express its thanks te., Mr.
tlreen, who had taken great interest
in anything that he could do for the
city, and had come to the city to
discuss the' questions that had arisen.
On motioi of \Mi. .Masson, seconded by Aid, Bourne a resolution was
passed expressing the thanks of the
council to Mr. Green for his efforts
and success in securing the internment camp in .the Revelstoke park.
W. E. Smith addressed the council
regarding the market bylaw. Tho
farmers, hi said, wanted the city
council to stop peddling during market hours. It w.<s the only way My
which tl e • era could be Induced
to bring In produce and by which
buyers could ' e attracted to the(mar-
ket. It was thi intention to fix a
minimum pi the produce.   This
spring om Chinaman had men working for their board, which cost seven
cents a day. He was non employing
Chinamen I i :"• cente a day without
board. Thi white ranchers could not
compete under such conditions. If
the ranchers could not L-et the regulations tor which they asked the market in -• si d. Th i pn . d
rent for 12.50 per month,
it was not the intentiou I i discriminate ; inann n. He hadUak-

Will Enable Refineries to be
Established—Shell   Committee's Contracts
With a view to insuring at reasonable prices a Canadian supply of Termed zinc suitable for use in the production of brass for the manufacture
of quick-firing cartridge cases for
shells, the government has passed an
rder In-council provl ling for bounties on refined zinc produced in Canada from i':.' adian >>res.
These bounties, however, are tentative and will not go into effect unless
'!:•■ a., is ended before July mi, 1"17.
'I lie reason for this  : t 1 he   zinc
i are willing to put in the   ne-
e tssary  plant  on  a  guarantee     that
lie- orders fr in   the Bhell  committee
will  lie  sufficient to defray the   cost
,f installing the plants, and a legitime profit, or else that   in  the event
•  the war coming' to a speedy cl.ise,
the bounty will be payable up to the
i ml of July, 11*17.   In any case it   is
provided  that   the total amount     of
bounties to be paid shall not   exceed
, K)0.
The decision to grant bounties    on
11 ■ conditions outlined above    was
reached after a full discussion of  the
whole situation by a committee     of
the government  under the chairman,-
of  the  minister of finance, act-
;:il' in conjunction with the shell committee of the militia department.
Hitherto zinc ores have not been
refined in Canada. Before the outbreak of the war refined zinc suitable
for  ammunltios   purposes     sold     at
about 'i und.   Since   the
• k  .ef  the  war.  however,     the
price     has  steadily risen  and it has

fall in zinc prices winch is Inevitable
after the close of the war. To meet

The order-ln-council provides for
bounties on a sliding scale n'ot ex-
ceedlng 2 rent, ner pe.'iiiel for refined
ore containing more than 2 per cent,

committee is in a position to go

vision will be announced later in retard  to the refining of copper   from

British Columbia  has immense zinc

The high prices now  prevailing     for

i een        piled by    thi
New England railway lines with re-1
spect to Tourist traffic in New England States, in these states there are
4,406 hotels and boarding houses
capable of accommodating 221,141
people, In 1913 these accommodated
1,400,000 guests, and it is calculated
(be tourists spent there not less than ,
$100,000,000.
"Mr. ff. T. Robson, organizer of
the Canadian Travel Association,
(formerly General Advertising Agent
of the Canadian Pacific Railway),
has propared a careful estimate of
the amount of money spent by tourists iu Canada last year. His fig-
ures are $50,000',000. Startling as it
may appear, these figures place the
value of tourist trullic in the fourth
position with respect to revenue from
Canada's national resources. The comparison   is:—
Field crops, Canada, 1913, $509,487,-
ooo.
I'M,nst products, Canada, 1913,
$161,093,000,
Minerals,     Canada,   1913,  $102,300,-'
000.
Tourist traffic, Canada, 1913, $50,-
000,00 '.
Fisheries, Canada, 1913, $43,&A1,0;>O.
"The (Utiles compiled are calculated to emphasize the tremendous com-J
'iiereial potentialities of the tourist
traffic, Nothing attracts tourists
like national narks. Therefore, national parks provide the chief means
of bringing to Canada a stream of
tourists and a stream of tourists'
gold. With the natural attractions
and wonders possessed by Canadian
luirks in particular and Canada in
general, it seems obvious that a proper and adequate development of
Dominion parks means that millions
of .Millars annually wil! be brought
Mil.,  Canada by tourists."
And it is worth remembering that
while the timber, fishing or mining
industries have the effect of depleting
Canada's natural resources the tourist industry takes nothing from the
natural wealth of the country. The
scenery remains after the tourists
have left th" country. Tlie country
is richer and its resources remain undiminished.

Even so-called expert opinion on
the war has a tendency to be carried
away by the fad, the phase of the
moment. At the beginning of the
war, people thought only in terms of
flank movements. Then the lines stift-
ened in France and Belgium and belore Warsaw, and people thought
only in terms of deadlock. The day
lor flanking operations was past. Thc
possibilities of breaking through were
• ■ver. ExhausHnll was the key note
until    the.Austro-Germans in Galicia

factories are turning out shells more
rapidly than the Allies. But it must
also be true that Germany's position
at the beginning of the war was
stronger than it is today in the matter of ".runs and ammunition. Otherwise what becomes of the argument
of preparedness? German superiority
to the allies in the matter of guns
and ammunition at Ypres in November must have been easily as decisive
as it is today; yet the Germans were
(.topped at Ypres in November. Por
that matter, if shells alone are the
determining factor, why docs not Germany now drive through the British
lines',in the direction nf Calais? After
all it is in the west that the war
must be decided. The common argument is that when Russia is disposed
of the Germans will turn their attention to the Uritish and French. But
'his apparently means that Germany
is willing to let England have several im n'hs' breathing space for the
manufacture of shells, expecting to
counter against allied ammunition
with German  masses of men.
The truth is that men as well as
guns counted in the , Austro-German
Victories in Galicia. Behind the guns
were the winter trained troops, a
new army which Germany had a
choice of using in the east or west.
She chose Russia because that was
the weakest, line of resistance, because the chances for a great sweep
were much brighter in Galicia than
in the west and a great forward
movement was necessary to stimulate public sentiment at home and
shape neutral sentiment in the Balkans. Agsinst the Allies in the west,
guns or no runs, Germany could not
hop" for anything like a decisive advance: and for the simple reason that
in the west sh" hnd to reckon with
superior men—both in numbers and
fighting etlicirn?y. .Russia in Galicia
was not only outmunitioned, but outnumbered. She hnd against ber, from
southern Polsnd to Bukowina, no
M'ss than eight or nine German and
Austrian armies, at least a million
and a quarter men, and probably a
million and a half, and to oppose
them she had less than a million.
Witl rrsrnrd to the situation in
England there has unquestionably
been a creat deal of exaggeration.
From a shortage of ammunition the
correspondents, professional and amateur, have gone on to speak of no
ammunition at all. They have jiic-
tured the British sitting helpless in
their trenches under German fire , unable to make n'|ily. This is absurd.
What England is actually agitated
about is not a Bhortage of shells for
her present haltle-llne, but an adequate supply for thc immense new
armies she is creating. Where is the
British army' the Germans ask now
as lb y diii Miring the first d:>ys of
t he war. Of that army a million is
now in France, probably, and other
ii-illhitis are still drilling. If no British advance in force is attempted,
the reason may not he altogether one
"■ iti'Ts, important though that
may be. There are indications that
British policy is agiinst any attempt
hj b i eet n of her full available
strength, If th" Germans are to be
pushed   out   of   Belgium,   the   attempt
nust  be m de liy vast numbers   and |
