Dominion Government
Puts War Tax Upon
Profits Of Business
DAINTY ACTRESS TO BE
SEEN AT LOCAL HOUSE
Leuore  Dlrlch   In  "Kilmeny"  Is A
Wonderful Photoplay.
The Westholme, the popular play
house of the city, is presenting Len-
ore Ulrich the talented actress in a
fascinating play "Kilmeny." This is
the leading feature of this evening
and again Thursday. "Kilmeny" has
been a great success wherever produced, and the management of the
Westholme are congratulating themselves upon securing this photoplay.
The play Is the romantic story of
a child of the woods transplanted to
the city. Like the other Famous
Player Productions "Kilmeny" is
staged in beautiful scenery, with
mountains, forests and streams playing an Important part, ln the surroundings. The impression produced
is of Hie most elevating character.
I ■> addition there is the latest
Topical Budget, showing the most,
up-to-date scenes from the war front
of the Allies.
"His Talented Wife" Is a roaring
Keystone Comedy, one of those that
makes yon forget four worries. Don't
fall to see this programme. Come
early.
[ Otl.-rwa. Feb. 15.—New war taxes
l have been announced in the budget,
which was brought down ln the
House of Comomns today.
Tho duty on apples has been raised to 90 cents per barrel.
Oils, Including crude, petroleum,
illuminating and lubricating oils,
one-half per cent, per gallon.
On the profits from munitions,
one-fourth of the net profits on the
capital invested, that has been de-
r'ved since the outbreak of the war
in excess of the fixed rate.
A business tax of one-fourth of
the net profits, since the outbreak of
the war, in excess of seven per
cent.
On all incorporated companies,

A  Ilea ii ti fill  Skin.
Mr. floldbloom, who is again in the
city, has a very unusual bear skin,
which he has on view In the Hotel
Prince Rupert. It is of a greyish
color, different to those of any distinct variety. Many have examined
it without being able to account for
the coloring. The skin is said to
have come from the north.

Yesternay afternoon In the Majestic Theatre, which bad been placed
at the disposal of tbe officers and
men of the 102nd Battalion, a very
successful smoker was held. It was
entirely informal and enjoyed by all
the members of the Northern British
Columbia Battalion, the officers and
men of the Irish Fusiliers, who were
also present and the small group of
civilians that had been asked to attend this first musical event of this
kind. Major Huntington, the senior
officer, acted as chairman in a most
informal manner, the members of
the Battalion evidencing their esteem
for him by greeting him with applause whenever he rose. At the close
of the concert he was given three
hearty cheers and a specially hearty
tiger. The Major seems to have made
himself very popular with him men,
who would go anywhere for him. He
took occasion, during the afternoon,
to pay a well earned compliment to
the men of this Prince Rupert Company, who certainly give evidence of
becoming one of the finest bodies
that ever went out of here.
Prof. Harvey came in for loud
cheers at. the close, for the efforts
he put forth to make the event a
success. It is possible that the entertainment will be put on again before a general gathering of the citizens. The Prince Rupert Company
of the 102nd has some excellent
talent in a musical way, as was
shown yesterday.
The concert opened at 2 o'clock
with the singing of God Save the
King, His Majesty's picture being
thrown on the scren. Throughout the
afternoon moving picture reels were
thrown on tbe canvass, adding to the
enjoyment of the programme.
A very acceptable feature of the
entertainment was the dancing of lit.
tie Miss Nelson, of Seattle, who is
here with her parents at the present
time. Major Huntington introduced
her as the Daughter of the Regiment. She appeared in Highland
costume and 'danced the Highland
Fling, and for an encore, danced
the Sailor s Hornpipe to the delight
of all. Later on the programme she
appeared    again,   giving   the   waltz
clog to the Merry Widow Walt.*, anil
for an encore put on a well executed Buck and Wing clog.
Professor Harvey sang Long Live
tho King in excellent voice. For an
encore he gave the popular old selection, The Little Midsliipmite,
those present joining in the choruses,
A sextette from the members of
the Battalion proved excellent entertainers. They sang Kentucky
Babe, and for an encore gave In the
Evcnine.
Private Koner, the Caruso of the
Regiment, rendered several selections
to the delight of all. Private Sharpe,
an excellent singer, also was heard
in favorite melodies, and was loudly
applauded. Harry Fletcher also contributed to the programme. He rendered On to Victory in fine style.
A boxing contest of a very comic
| character  was  staged  by  two  meni-
| hers of the Battalion.    Lieut.  Bow-
den, of the Irish Fusiliers, was called upon  for a speech, and  made a
very happy one.

THE FISHING CONCESSIONS.
It is gratifying indeed to the citizens of Prince Rupert to have the
concessions, relative to American
bottoms calling here, to land fish
renewed. These regulations have
worked to ihe advantage of the 'city.
They have in fact been the greatest
single factor in the building up of
this port as a fishing centre, more
especially In view of the fact that
the facilities for shipping fish from
here, through the completion of the
(3. T. P.. came at a time when,
through the difficulty of getting
money, il was Impossible to build up
a home fleet. The work done by H.
S, Clements, M. P. in this matter
will not soon be forgotten by the
citizens of Prince Rupert.
WAR TAXES.
In consequence of the tremendous
cost of the war, it will be many years
before residents of the country will
be likely to get away from war taxes
in some form or other. In the recent
Imposition, made at Ottawa, it is
gratifying to see that the burden is
cast, for tbe most part, upon those-
who are best able to bear it. The
wealthy corporations that are making big profits are to be obliged to
contribute a share of their profits to
the war chests.

"Are you Happy?" ihe question of
.Major Huntington was answered in
no uncertain way by the men of the
102nd at the smoker yesterday afternoon. Had it been possible to look
into the hearts of all present, it Is
doubtful if there was a happier one
present than the Major himself, and
he had good reason for being proud
of such a body of m«n.

Eye Troubles Corrected
Mr. Bulger has had over ten years experience in sight testing
and fitting glasses, and last mid-summer took a post graduate
course, which included the latest discoveries in the science of optometry or eye measuring. One of the most imi ortant is dynamic skiametry. The new method of Prof. A. J, Cross, of New
York, in which the eye is measured by a beam Of reflected light
and any error is recorded.
But we do imi simply rely on one method; each eye Is tested
separately, in three different ways, besides trying the muscular balance, together and the nervous  ncuteness.
We use the new drngless methoo's, no drops in the eye and no
heavy frame resting on your face; ours swings from the wall by a
bracket.

clared, frequently became a public
danger, but the British nation never;?
made the mistake of being too clever. :
The greatest qualities of the British '
people, he said, were common sense
and courage, combined with a lack
of Imagination. At the end of the'
war Great Britain would stand about
where she stood nt the begininng,
except that she would have lost her
ne Havings, Sir George said, lie declared Hint the loss already amounted to £600,000,000 and expressed
tho belief that if the war lasted
another year tbe loss would reach
,El,000,Oiio,ooii. But, he declared in
conclusion, the entire nation was
learning to work more efficiently and
skilfully than before, and that after
the war her productive power would
be greater than ever.
