These nre ��tiniu��� times. Between
Moildm River uml Victoria the attention of our readers mny hnve beiiu sp
distracted tlmt, they ilid not observe, oi
if observing did not mark, the intelli
genoe printed iu these columns a few
days ago, to the effect that the paper
makers of Eastern Canada hnd combined and advanced the price of nesvs
print twenty-five per cent. Anil if
���narked, it ii i[uite iioHsitiln tho full
signiflonnoe of it wan not realised. A
practical effeot to newspaper publishers is thnt tim prioe of their principal
raw material hns gone up with a
bound. Bnl as lon.; as the printed pa-
pet does not go np, the pnblio will nol
experience any deep concern over this
fact. The pnblio can stand n wonder
lui amount of hardship Hint is confined
strictly to the newspapers.
iiut it is not of the newspapers we
set out to speak. The paper-makers
sui they were obliged to udvnuce
prices, lor the reason Hint, their raw
material, pulp, hus gone up. Anil
pulp hus gone up,  because   there i.-i   an
unusual heavy demand on the Canadian supply by the mumifnilurerH in
Hie I'ni ted .States. PnlpWOOd in that
oountry is rapidly uearing exhaustion.
Kutt of the Mississippi, where the
consumption Ib greatest,there is said to
bo not more than live years' supply in
sight. There is thus a heavy domain)
for the Canadian article, of which the
supply '8 supposed to be limitless. It
is uol lim it loss by any means, but we
act as if we were endeavoring to persuade ourselves thnt it is. At tbe
present rate of consumption it will not
be many years before ne begin to see
the end of our own resources, Onr
own consumption Is nol grent, but
with the United States aud Groat
Britain drawing on na we shall soon
realise tbal there may   be  un end  to
pulp as well us to other things.    Pulp-
wood is a valuable resource even today, and u few yenrs hence il will !������
more valuable, Then, nre vasl quan-
