The proposal is to  establish a , Provincial Bureau of  Fire Prevention, which will operate  through local bureaus; the membership to be composed of persons representative of this Department, the  municipalities, the fire departments,,  the insurance companies, and all  bodies or interests able and willing  to render aid in. this connection.  The Bureau will prepare propaganda  furnish information and plan a campaign to diminish the loss by lire.  As you are doubtless aware, there  is a tremendous Held for an organization of this character. In Canada  tho annual value of property destroyed by lire approaches the sum of  $3 for every man woman and child,  and surpass even the figures for the  United States, where a campaign is  being vigorously waged over tho  length and breadth of the land. In  Europe the average loss per capita  is well under 50 per cent., proving  that conditions in America call for a  cure.

This committee will  consist, of representatives of the military of, the Allies and of tlie dominions and of the colonies, and the representatives of the war offices of India, and the ministry of shipping in  the United Kingdom, under the chair  manship of the secretary of state for  war or a deputy appointed by him.  The remainder of the discussions  at this sitting concerned naturalisation. The conference passed a resolution recommending that a special  conference representative of all parts  of the empire, should be held at the  earliest practicable ^ate to examine  and report on any question connected1  with nationality or nationalization  which any government represented at  the special conference may desire  raised and upon any suggestions  which may.be made i'or amending  the existing law. This conference  will be probably convened shortly, so  that overseas representatives may  have on oportunity of attending before leaving the United Kingdom.  At the fifteenth meeting of the conference, tho first subject discussed  was reciprocity in treatment between  Tndia and the dominions. This discussion followed on a resolution pass  ed by the conference last year, accept  ing the principle of reciprocity, and a  further resolution .was passed that  effect should now be given to last  year's resolution, in pursuance of  which the conference agreed as follows:  (1)���������It is the inherent function of  the governments of the several committees of the British common wealth  including India, that each should enjoy complete control of the composition of Its own people by means of restricting immigration from any other  community.  (2)���������British citizens, domiciled in  any British country, including India  should be admitted into, any other  British country for visits for purposes of pleasure or commerce, including temporary residence I'or Ihe purpose of education. Tho condition of  such visits should be regulated on  the principle of reciprocity as follows  (A)���������Tho right of the government  of India is recognized to enact laws  which should have the effect of subjecting British citizens domiciled in  any other liritish country to tho same  condition in visiting India as those  imposed on Indians desiring to visit  such country.

Otherwise the tourist traffic to  Mission City,, and Haisic this, summer will not prove as far reaching  into the future as expected. ���������  Last week wo took up ihe new  proposed tax on automobiles. We  said very little about it" except to  outline tho proposed plans of the  government as given publicity by  Mr. McGeer, who no doubt is ' the  mouthpiece for tlio provincial gov-  orn-viout wherev-or he can make his  voic.j heard.  Tho main point which we wished  to emphasize was that at the present' time there was quite a revenue  already coming from autos to the  government. We wanted to know  what was being done along tlie line  of improving our roads. r.l he way  we,figured it out ?2S5.000 was quite  an amount to begin with and if the  i'uifi'ii ciu coiiju u'jv. s i\v come  with  twice the amount.  The Vancouver Sun does not give  an opinion on the matter editorially  but throws the expression of opinion on an unnamed automobile  dealer in Vancouver who is made to  .say:  "That the proposal of one of the  representatives in the provincial  legislature to put an additional tax  on automobiles is certainly not one  that will meet with the approval of  owners, is the statement of one local  dealer on being questioned regarding  the suggestion, although it was stipulated that tho funds would bo especially allocated to hard-surfacing  certain main highways in the province.  "Several years ago when the automobile was first considered as a taxable proposition, the same argument  was handed out by the party in  power, witli pointers as to how much  revenue would be secured and the  good that would eventually come  through its expenditure on good  roads,' said this man. ".Years have  come and gone, and many thousands  of dollars have gonojnto the general  fund of the treasury but no statement has over boon issued as to  what particular road work the funds  so laised have gone to. Tt is quite  likely that an additional tax would  go the same route.  "O. G. McGeer, ihe member for  ."Richmond, who makes the suggestion, is quoted as having said that  the lax would meet the approval of  owners 'provided that they could he  assured that the money wo.ik! bo  spent on the improvement of roads.  Thera is little doubt that ownon  generally would approve of taxes  derived from this source being  spent on roads, but there is a doubt  that they would approve of taxation  sue!) as suggested.

In'   some   Provinces   the   local  Government has established .employment     agencies. ' ��������� Every     Province  might'-well  have similar, offices  supplemented    by ' voluntary    organizations in every centre.    Business men-  in   this  and   every   other     Canadian  town,  should  become  active  in   this  matter because it    vitally   'concerns  them.     Employers   of   labor   should  do everything in  their power  to  arrange   their   work   so   as   to   release  men   who   arc  willing  to  go  to  the  aid   of   the  farmers.    Every   encouragement should  be given these men  for work is of first importance. Far-,  mors,   of  course,   prefer   experienced  men,   and    'men     who     have     been  brought up on farms or spent some  years on the land should be specially  encouraged   to  devote  a   few  weeks  of   their   time  and   the     capital     of  their   experience   to   the   harvest   of  19 IS.

The  very change in mental viewpoint,  from careless to definite, from casual  to positive, is sufficient to win the  war. More than that, its effect on  business can bo nothing less than  conspicuously  helpful.���������The Eclipse.

In the third'year  17   per  cent  came  from   taxes,  and  about   IS   per   cent,   in   the   fourth  year.    In  presenting  its  budget  for  this, the fifth year, the British treasury proposes  to  raise  about  21  per  cent,  of tlie  war  expenditures  from  taxes. Notwithstanding the fact that  the government in England  has  recognized the necessity of keeping enterprise  and   industry   going  at  full  speed, and has applied the pressure  of war taxation gradually, the chancellor of the exchequer in his budget  speech  a  few  weeks  ago  called  the  attention  of  parliament  to  tho  fact  that he had  had to give careful attention   to  the  winding  up  of  businesses that, owing to the pressure of  taxes,   had   been   forced   to   haul   in  their horns.

A SOLDIER'S CHANCES
The chief features of ihe market
on Friday last were the poultry section and the fish stall operated by
the Defiance Packing Company. Tlio
poultry was exceptionally well represented,  both in   the offerings and     .      ri  ,
,. , ,-,,���.���<. .     ' lauk Cod,
in the purchases.   ' Crate alter crate ; CoU   H|jua

prices did not va-y much troni tucss | iijiiiL��ut.  per lb	
of last wek.but the demand -was con-; steeihead. per lb	
siderably brisker. The Sherman fish
stall wiLh salmon, soles, skate and
codfish at popular prices was thronged all the morning and though, there
was a certain amount of criticism respecting the quality of the fish offered the sales were considerable. Eggs
sold at 53d per dozen in tho wholesale department, but remained at GOd
retail, some dealers selling retail
lots at odd- Butter sold wholesale
from 3Sd per lb. to 45d and retailed
from 45(J up to 60d according to the
qualify of the butter.
The meat section showed an extra
activity and some first class beef was
shown at ISd per lb.; inferior quality
was quoted from 12 y2 up to 15c'
Veal was shown in good quality and
ran from 20d to 23d."Tork sold more
readily than last week and was quoted at prices ranging from !Srf for the
heavy carcas up to 2 4�� for (lie prime
pork.
Small fruits were somewhat disappointing and though there wore numerous enquiries from loganberries
black and red .currants and raspberries, the supply was short, the rain
of yesterday being given as a reason
for the inability of the farm era to
pick the fruit. The currants whien
were in evidence sold at- lOd per lb.
for the red and I2y2 per lb. for the
black. Raspberries were quoted for
$2.2b per crate and the white or
yellow variety were selling at 10c
per small box. Tomatoes sold at 20d
and 2od D01" !'->. and garden truck in
all Hues was well represented and
sold quickly in the usual bunches
and bundles of 1.0d
The potato section was very quiet
v?ry few sales being reported and
tho offering were slow.    A large at
tendance of farmers and their families was noticeable on lho floor of
tho market, and generally speaking
tho business done was of greater volume than has been the case for the
past month.
The following prices wore quoted:

Interesting    Statistics-   P.asetl    Ujion
Investigation of Commission
The military hospital commission
at Quebec has kept an account of
bow Canadian trcops fared in the
war, and has compiled some interesting statistics based upon its investigations.
Addressing Canadian mothers and
fathers the commission says:
If your boy goes to the front:
1-le has 29 chances of coming heme
to one chance of being killed.
He has 9S chances of recovering
from a wound to two chances of dying.
Me has only one chance in GOO of
losing a limb.
He will live five years longer bo-
jause ol"  physical  training.
He is freer from disease
army than in civil life.
He has better medical care at the
front than at home.
In other words from 10 to in men
died from disease to one from bullets.
In this war one man dies from
disease to every ten from bullets.
This war is proportionately loos
wasteful of life than any other In
history.
Only ten per cent, of all the Canadians   disabled   for  further   service
bavc   been  physically unable   to   t
gage in their former occupations.
If your boy is one of the ten per
cent, tlie government will re-educate
him in another vocation at which he
can  earn  a  living.
This doesn't mean that war is a
danger-free occupation and that life
in the trenches is as comfortable as
���in the easy chair here at home, but
it does make it appear less rear-
some than it has been painted over
here, especially by pro-German socialists, disloyal pacificists and German-born traitors in Canada.

Perhaps, not  one of these, however, would want to buy the  article you want to sell.   ���������  If your advertisement, however, were to be  printed in these columns this week, it would  "stop" EVERY MAN IN TOWN WHO WANTS  TO BUY SHOES, OR CLOTHES, OR ANY  OTHER ARTICLE���������aiid-it wouldn't "stop" anyone who didn't want to buy- That's the beauty  of the advertising way of finding a buyer. The  ad. finds the buyer through the simple process of  being easily and readily found BY the buyer -  And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,  there is one (o whom your goods would be a bargain, and your ad. is a convincing one, you'll sell  what you want to sell.

Many people from  the district were present.  As a result of the entertainment  $3 5 was collected, which will be divided equally between the Red Cross  and Prisoners of War, after the expenses of the piano have been paid.
