Ottawa, Sept. 10.���Opinions differ ln
Ottawa as to the probable effect on
the Canadian producer and consumer
of the new United States tariff.
At the Mathows-1-alng head office,
tbe assistant manager ln the absence
of Hr. Gray, stated that the removal
of duty on Canadian goods moans an
increase of front one to two cents per
pound In the prloe of beef to the
Canadian consumer.
The view-was also expressed that
if the wholesale houses are forced to
raise beef prices a cent or two per
pound (there Is reslly no telling what
the. retailer may In turn charge tlie
consumer. It may mean even three
or four cents per pound more for beef
to the householder.
A. C. Boper, manager of the Ogllvle
flour mills, stated that the reduction
of the United States duty from 25
cunts to 10 cents per bushel on wheat
coming from Canada would have practically no effect here.
"Ab a matter of fact," said Mr,
Sopcr, "the United States bas been
free wheat for years. The 25 cents
duty was given as protection to the
miller. Now the American miller
uses Canadian wheat only to Improve
the quality of his export flour. None
In used for domestic purposes. And
in the export flour business the
Amerlcsn miller Is given a rebate of
almost 24 cents on bis original duty
of 2C cents. The rebate practically

in the matter of appointing judges for life or electing them
for short terms there is probably something to be said on
both sides.
While it may make a judge feel more secure and more
f nee to-say what he thinks when he knows that his position
is solid no matter what decision he hands down, still that
very sense of security, if he is not a strong man, may pos-
���tdhly make him less careful than he otherwise might be.
Once a judge is appointed in Canada it's a hard proportion to "un-appoint" him as it were. He is put in as a
solid fixture and his solidity is a fact, so that an occupant I ^h^on of the nu_tatinn lg th���

Government Tax May Have Effect of

in Ontario.
Ottawa, Sept. in.- Cigars may be
banished from the bars in many hotels in Ottawa in the next few weeks,
following a similar movement wlilch*
wns >tarted a few days ago among
the Toronto hotel men.
Ily  ihe  "temperance"  legislation  of
the Ontario government it was decid- I
ed to tax all bar receipts over *G<> n|
day   five   por cent.    The  Ontario   Licensed   Victuallers'   association     pro- !
lestcd   in  vain  against  the  taxing  of
cigars, cigarettes and soft drinks, lion. ,
VV. J. Hanna made the decree that all
money   over   the    stipulated     amount
should   have   five   per  cent,   deducted
for  the  provincial  treasury.
"The matter of stopping the sale of
rlgars In the Ottawa bars will likely
come before the next meeting of the
Ottawa Licensed Victuallers' association for consideration," said Mr. .1.
K. Paisley, proprietor of the (irand
I'nion hotel ami president of the Hotel
Men's association for the whole of
Onlirio today. "It is obviously unfair
to levy a tax on the sale of smoking
mat'rial, buttermilk and soft drinks
In bars when airy corner grocer may i
sell them without a percentage' tax be
Ing charged. Besides it certainly does
not encourage the cause of temperance, l do not sell cigarettes In the
bar of my hotel at all because I have
an antinathy to cigarettes."
Other hotel men point out that if they
are forced hy the Bpeclal tax to discontinue the sale of such things as
Clears, the use of l!i|iior Is likely to
be increased, for many persons who
DOW are able to take a cigar when
sepie friends insists upon "treating"
will have no such alternative then
real improvement oh it.
It's just a question whether the man who has too many
friends is not worse off than the fellow who hasn't any.
If flying machines ever put the autos out of business
the horse certainly will have a laugh coming at the expense of the chug-chugs that spoiled their career.

The store has been closed for Two Days, and we have grouped together all lines of merchandise we are desirous
of closing out. These lines have been placed on the sales floors and sales tables, and we feel assured that
at the low prices we have marked them we will have a speedy clearance.
The goods offered are all in "A-l" condition. They can be classed as dependable and reliable merchandise.
The only reason for selling so low is: We wish to discontinue carrying them in stock, and place in stock new
