No. 46
The following editorial from the pages of the Colonist, while
dealing with the imposition of the new agricultural tax in its
relation to and effect on farming on Vancouver Island, applies in
equally as much to the agricultural situation in the northern
"The farmers who are operating in a small way on Vancouver
Island have not an easy task to make both ends meet in the best of
times. For some years past.in fact since the war began, we believe
it is no exaggeration to say that many of them have been living on
the edge of existence, holding on to their land in the hope that the
war will end and conditions improve. Now they are awakening to
the fact that the taxes on their property have been doubled and the
imposition falls with a heavy hand on the agricultural industry of
the Island.
"Various public bodies in Victoria and elsewhere on Vancouver
Island have striven, year in and year out, to encourage the
development of agriculture and it is fair to assume that their
propaganda has brought fair results. But now it would seem
unfair to invite settlers to go on the land, for with the burden of
taxation it is too onerous a task to make a livelihood. When the
additional taxation was announced last session this paper pointed
ont that inasmuch as taxes on land were in arrears owing to dull
times, it was unwise to make the levy heavier. The new supertax
seems destined to have even more serious results than we
anticipated. Farmers cannot be blamed if they give up the land
and seek occupations in the cities, for in many instances the
doubling of taxes on small holdings is certain to prove heavier than
they can bear.
"It should not be too late for the government to reconsider the
situation that is developing. It cannot have been foreseen, or Mr.
John Oliver, who is a practical farmer, would not have permitted
this tax to go into effect.     If it remains in force the result to the
agricultural industry is certain to be harmful. While it continues
it would be folly to attempt to induce returned soldiers to go on the
land, unless their property is to be exempt from the super-lax. It
is regrettable that at a time when the cry all over the world is for
more, and more production, the government of British Columbia
should have considered it wise to put a tax on agriculture, for in
effect that is what the increased levy on land means."

Colossal War Figures
Some startling figures in connection with the war were given
by Arthur Henderson in the
course of a speech in aid of the
Belgian Relief Fund. These included:
Killed and wounded.   46,000,000
Killed 7,000,000
Expenditure   .     $45,000,000,000
The number of killed, which
includes the women and children
of Armenia and Syria and ether
territories occupied by the enemy,
exceeded the entire population of
the county of London, and it was
estimated that the total number
of people killed and wounded,
directly or indirectly, exceeded
the population of the United

Emperor William has uostponed

An official communication issued |
from Berlin says Emperor William
has expressed the opinion that
the political and constitutional
reforms demanded by the reichstag are such that they concern
not merely nimself but his successor, inasmuch as they would
be permanent. For this reason
the emperor has summoned the
crown prince to attend the crown
councils, at which final decisions
regarding the extent to which
the crown and government will
make concessions to the reichstag
will be reached. The Kaiser has
