year might be reduced. There had
however been a heavy loss in the
water aio1 li ;ht revenue. This was due
to the number of empty houses and
to economy practised by consumers.
The small jiox epidemic had cost
$200<i. The rate had to Cover the
grant of pavement made to the hospital last year which cost $1100. The
purchase of the Stacey property cost
$600, but this effected a saving to
the city e.f ?2" a month• and was a
good investment. The bitulithic pavement  and  sidewalks  o instructed  last
year meant an additional mill.    The
Iors  of    water      and      light revenue
amounted to three mills.  He did not
think that it  was  good business   for
tbe council   to shirk  its  duties.      The

The mayor said that be was pleased at the way in which the school
board had c..-operated with the council in keeping lown expenditures, li
thc council had spent the same as
was sjient last year the rate would
be over iO mills. It bad cut expenses where  ever possible.
C. B. Hume expressed his satisfaction with the council's statement, He
felt that the council had done its
best and Ihat it. deserved credit for
keeping expenses down. lie thought
that the council hud done well In
kcei>ing the rate down. II was a hard
year, the council had not been too
stingy, but bad kept things in running order.
Aid. Bell said that the expression
of Mr. Hume's sentiments was very
satisfactory to the council who were
glad to know that their efforts were
appreciated. It had looked at one
time as if a rate of 80 mills could
not  be  avoided.
Mr. Hume suggested that some
method ol making the payment of

propose this because the press was

things that do not sound very well
in print. His worship gave some instances. Retarding himself he said
that on one occasion in discussing

Every one of the alius is now
fully cognizant of the extreme necessity of piling up artillery ammunl-
• on in unprecedented quantities.
Britain, Prance ami Kussia are each
engaged  in developing     with utmost
speed   I I.  e-    facilities   along   this   line.
!:   the  war  is t.e be ended   in    a   rea
minahle     time,     leaving the victors
with some strength, it must l.e rush
eel through by the sneer power of ex-
I loslvee.     Superiority     in   numbers
Mme will not avail. Germany now is
able te. bold out so well, not because '
e-f numbers alone,  hut because of sup-
jlies of munitions which she prepared during the winter.
From each of the allies comes announcement of immense extensions e.f
plant for making munitions. Dnder
tbe energetic direction of ex-Chan-
ellor Lloyd George the industrial resources eef Britain are heing organized for the on great purpose. Addressing the Liverpool workers re-
cently, he said. "If every trade
unionist were brought hack from tbe
front, ami if they worked to the Ut-
OSt limits of human endurance,
there would not he enough labor to
produce what the government is ask-
Ing to havi produced during the next
few months." Workers for the shell
Mei,ries are hem.- recruited on every
side, new factories are being organized, and Mr. George   has    expressed
himself   as   at last   satisfied    tbat    all
will go well.   Tw.. million     workers
are toiling now in tin  Bhell factories.
France  has  been  ahead  of any     of   its
• Hit's in realizing the importance of
unlimited munitions. A month or
two ago tin British chancellor stated
that since the beginning "f the war

Winnipeg Free Press: The munitions oi war which France has not
been able to manufacture at home
the has imported in large measure
from the workshops of the United
States; and vessels loaded with these
■;,ninth.n.s of war are safely conveyed
across ihe Mlaniie hy the Warships
of the alli'd powers. Thus tbe German hope to force au early peace on
France through the exhaustion of her
supplies nas heen destroyed. Russia,
io,, is .-"curing munitions of war
irom the United States across the
Pacific, from which ocean thc Ger- iiu' has entirely disappeared.
For tin- purposes of this war the
Pacific ocean is now a British lake.
Japan also is believed to be co-operating with the allies in furnishing the
Russians with munitions of war.

One ol tbe most Btriking>t*ibutes
to Gem-mi Sain llug'lu'B, minister of
militia, comes from the leading Liberal newspaper in eastern Ontario,
Ottawa Free l'rcss.
Tbe Ottawa Free Tress republished
in full Gen. Bertram's address to the
Canadian Manufacturers in Toronto.
and published also on its front page
an editorial article drawing attention
io the amazing work accomplished
by General Hughes, as mislster of
militia, and Gen. Bertram, as chairman of the shell com.i-~i.tee.
In tbe course of the article the Ottawa Liberal newspaper thus refers
to  Gen.  Sam  Hughes:
What Britain has begun to do today  after  the  lapse  of  seven  months
what Britain has formed a coalition
government der the purpose of carrying on, what Britain has just created a separate government department for With its brainiest statesman
end organizer nt the head—that Oan-
.i.i., started to do within four weeks
eef the declaration of war.
This paper has poked fun at Gen-
ral Sam Hughes, but always with
the underlying Idea that behind    all
Ig Idiosyncr sies there wn/t\ real competency and merit. Today we take off
iur hats to him. His critics, including ourselves, have been confounded,
He      Stands      revealed      a       renins.
\i ei the evidence is an ar-
ray of startling, cold facts
I resented by an unimpressionable,
calculating, practical mechanic, calm
I' man, able captain of industry, and military officer of distinction—for that ls the way General
Bertram can bc correctly described.
At the very outbreak of war Gen-
Hughes had tbe vision to realize what
in a very short time would be the
empire's greatest need; he had the
courage of his convictions; be bad
the ability to select just the right
men to work out his vision; and he
had the force of character, enthus-
I iasm, aud energy to inspire those
men to achievement.
it was on September 2, only four
weeks after \*,e outbreak of the war,
General Hughes called the meeting ot
expert^ at which be outlined hia idea
Of   the   empire's   great   need and      his
vision of how Canada could help to
meet that need. His program start-
hci his bearers- It Beemed impossible,
General  Bertram says he himself wns
a doubter. The difficulties and obstacle's to overcome Beemed Insur
mountable, the limitations of Canada's manufacturing resources ap-
peared to be an Insuperable barrier,
lint Genera] Hughes' courage wus Indomitable. It is big enough to lead
him to tnckle an army corps Bingle
banded, aod he insisted on the big
]ob he had outlined being tackled.
Result: Canada was at that time
equipped to turn out Tf. shells per
day, importing most of the material
in the component parts; Canada is
today turning out between forty and
fifty thousand shells nir day and tbe
component parts are mainly produced
in Canada—the Dominion has already
shipped  1)50,000 shells.
We ask readers of The Free Press
te, read the cold, unvarnished tale
told by General Bertram and when
they have done that, we believe they
will, like us. take off their hats to
General Hughes and General Rert-
And tbey have said General Husrhes
is insane!

The Wall Street Journal recently
announced that the federal department of justice was conducting an
investigation "f the alleged zinc
smelting trust and it is believed that
this is the influence that is operating
in the spelter market, the price of
the metal having been reduced from
approximately j;i cents a pound for
thc highest grades to 22 cents yesterday. It is said that Investigation is
covering both the complaints of zinc
producing companies and manufacturers ol articles into which spelter enters. The former charge that they are
not getting enough for their ore and
thc latter complain that they arc being charged too much for spelter. Assistant attorney ceneral Todd, who

gati'in, is .pi >tr,) ;..- siviiif that he
does not know when it will be possible to make a report.
