Ii. Marriott Wilson  in tlui Chronicle. Maiiyi-U'hnines have  been ])ut fqrwn.nl since tho original  successful experiments in Yorkshire  in the lirjH Iinll' of the hist century.  It, has always seined to idealists,  who, after all, are (ho prophets of  this world, that in ,co-oporution of  one sort or another is to bo found  the-ultimate answer to Lhe economic  riddle. In some ways it exists al-  read in the form of profit sharing  and in the form of bonuses. There  is, I think, a great development for  it In the future.  In this connection I wish to call attention to a new scheme, set on foot  at this critical moment in history,  which seems to me to have in it the  germ of great economic revolution.  This scheho-is not the work of mere  idealists who stand outside business  affairs and dream dreams. It is the  work of severely practical business  men, men, too, who are at the head  of one of the greatest corporations  in the city of London. The corporation 1 refer to is nearly a century  old, and commands a vast amount of  business. It is one of the largest  marine insurance companies in ttlio  world. Its premiums in peace time  amounted to over $1,500,000. ancl its  premiums in 1916 were nearly $?.*J,-  :-(J00,0OO. So much for tlie bread;-Ji  of its operations. 'It has for its  chairman a distinguished Liberal  member of parliament who is a. privy  counsellor, and among its directors  are gentlemen of the highest financial position, mainly connected with  the banking world.  The management of this large concern has resolved to make a serious  experiment in co-operation with the  employees. The project lias been  carefully considered and is now matured, and I am permitted to give  some particulars of it. It has been  decided that 2 per cent, of the company's unedrwriting profits over  $100,000 shall be handed over to a  trust fund for division among the  employees. This fund is to be divided into two halves. The one half  is to; be a long service fund, which  ���������..���������will be distributed among the. members of the staff in proportion to  their length of service. The orange  ment is that for five years' service  and under, ten years one share shall  be allotted annually for ten years  and uncle fifteen years two shares,  for fifteen years and under twenty  years three shares, for, twenty years  and under twenty-live years four  shares, and for twenty-five years and  over live shares. So far as the present war is concerned service with his  majesty's foi-ces will be reckoned as  service with the company, and in the  event of any employee's death so serving the shares will go to his personal representatives. The moiety of the  fund is to be divided among the staff  at the discretion of the board for efficiency. . ,T will come back to that  later.  Let me here take an example  which will illustrate the working of  the scheme. It is obvious that it  has been carefully prepared to reward honest conscientious labor and  to encourage talent. Suppose that a  clerk is in receipt of $1250 a year  after fifteen years service. On prewar earnings of the company he will  be entitled through his allotment of  three shares to receive an annual bonus, in addition to salary, of $1.50.  In war time, the earnings being so  much enhanced, he will double that  sum. But he need not stop here. If  he be an efficient, valuable member  of the staff he will be entitled to receive a further payment from the efficiency fund, which may amount to  a much larger sum at the discretion  of the directors. Thus a man whose  nominal salary is $125 0 a year may  become entitled to receive $1750;  that is to say, he becomes to that extent a partner in the concern and a  sharer  in  its  profits.  The attraction of the scheme, and  (to ruy mind) ils priority over all  previous schemes, is that it makes an  emphatic distinction betweno the con  scientious, but pedestrian plodder,  and  the ma nof brains and  talent.  Mosquito Delegation .  Visits Victoria  (l������"roin  Fraser    Valley Hccord.)  A delegation from the Fraser Valley will wait on tho provincial government, this week to talk .over several niatl.fji'H, one of, tho niost iiuport-  antboing tho mosquito qusetion.  From Mission Council will go the  Rccvo and Councillor Clark, two of  Matsqui Council, two from Matsqui  school board, one from the Abbotsford Board of Trade ancl others.  All hope that the'government can  be induced to take the l mosquito  question up ancl do some good work  NOT OIV YOUR TINTYPE  "PERSONALS  Hon. John Oliver, Premeir of the  Province of British Columbia, has  written a communication, short and  very much to the point, to a prominent citizen of this district that owing to the 'financial stringency and  other considerations' nothing will be  done by the Provincial Government  to eradicate the mosquito pest of  the Fraser Valley.  Assistance in this matter does not  mean the spending of millions of  dollars but simply a few thousand  dollars would help a lot. But-what  tho public would probably like to  know is what the 'other considerations' are.  The trouble with trade unions has  ben that their tendency, in the economic sphere, has been to level  down the worker to the range of  the most inferior. There has been  no attempt to encourage or stimulate  merit'. To that extent the operation  of trade unions has been narrow and  unwise. But this scheme, while arranging for an honest recgonition of  the patient worker, recognizes . also  the superior qualifications1 of the man  of brains and skill. This is a very  valuable advance.  It may be objected that the project  is devised for clerks only. It is true  that this particular plan is, but that  is only because the company employs  clerks ancl net manual .laborers. The  management,:-which' has. this scheme  at heart, wisely contents itself with  beginning at home, in the hope that  its example may be copied. Already  there are many signs and witnesses  to the probability that it, will be copied widely in the city of London a-  mong business concerns. And when  it is .found that the scheme works  well it is expected that the idea will  be taken; up in other regions of the  business world.' I happen to know  that prominent representatives of  the working classes who have been  approached on the subject have expressed themselves very favorably  and sympathetically toward it. Indeed from the chorus of approbation  with, which it: has been greeted privately, one dares to expect a great  deal from what is really a movement  in natural evolution, and is. in no  way a revolution.  This scheme if carried out as it  seems likely to be carried out, will  serve to merge all tlie interests in  the mercantile and industrial, world.  It is, in fact, a merger of common  interests, of employers and employes  No doubt in course of time defects  will show themselves, but these can  be eradicated with experience and  the growth of wisdom. It may (and  I confidently hope will) be manifest  that the interests' of. employers and  employes are identical, ancl that the  work of both will only tend to the  benefit of both. The scheme in operation will stimulate the output of  commerce and lubricate its workings  Efficiency will get its reward ancl also  faithful service. Whether the end of  the division of profits has' been  reached in this idea I do not pretend  to say, but to nie it is quite sufficient  that a beginning has been made, and  a beginning which has to its primal  inception the enthusiastic support o>  so powerful a corporation and of so  , many men of the highest position  land influence, belonging to both political parties. This scheme, indeed,  ���������has nothing to do with politics; it is  J a "national'' scheme for the recon-  i stitution of social and economic conditions now and hereafter.

Graduated War  Tax On Incomes  Those  Enjoying    Highest     Incomes  Will Pay Largest Amount  THE BIG DANCE  ON FRIDAY LAST  . Jf the income war tax law, about  to bo applied, did nothing more than  cause a national stock-taking, it  would serve a most   iseful purpose.  The taking of an inventory of one's  resources invariably induces a desire  to save and a desire to save when  translated, as it very frequently is,  into a determination to save, means  getting on with the war, as well as  happiness all around. This process  first an inventory of one's resources  then a desire to save, applied to every unmarried person ,or widow and  widower without dependent children  receiving an Income of $1,500 and  over ,and to all other persons receiving .an income of $3,000 and over  will unquestionably result'in a large  proportion of cases, in a determination to save. And that means more  general prosperity and renewed national strength.  But a national stock-taking is only incidental, of course, to the chief  purpose of the income tax, v/hich is  to provide revenue for the.prosecution of the war in as equitable a  manner as possible. The tax is to be  graduated, according to one's ability  to pay. Those who are in receipt of  only a living wage or salary will not  l)e..,called.lupon. t_o, pay; i those enjoying the highest incomes be ��������� called upon to pay tho greatest amounts  and the great body of income receivers between, will be called upon to  pay in their clue proportion.  Moreover, the purpose of the act  is to distribute the-burden equitably  among all classes. By way of illustration, the farmer will be required  to add to the value of his actual income, the value of the home-grown  products which his own family consumes. 'This places the farmer on a  plane with the salaried man, the  value of whose services is wholly represented in the income received and  against which he must charge all his  living expenses.  Canada lias established a war record that is the envy of. the World.  It is curtain that the Canadian people will run true to form in answer  to this latest call of their war government.  PULP PLANT  FOR   HATZIC  (From  Fraser  Valley Record.)  The big dance given in the skating rink on Friday evening last was  by all odds the most enjoyable affair held in Mission City, for'some  time. Thero were present over two  hundred couple, representing all the  surrounding districts���������Dewdney, Nicomen, Matsqui, Abbotsford,Mt. Leh- ,  man (although a dance was held ,  there thesame evening) Sumas. Rus-  kin, Whonnock and even as far as  Hahey, Hammond and Port Coquitlam, showing that all wanted to show  their appreciation of the good company they were in when they were  saying farewell to the telephone and  power men. To say that all enjoyed  themselves goes without referring to  the matter at all.  The committee in charge of ,the  affair had spent much time in decorating the hall which looked par  excellence, and never did the old  building look more like a holiday.  A most excellent supper was served  at 12 o'clock and ably handled by an  efficient committee, appointed for the  occasion, composed of several Mission City and Hatzic young men and  a handsome bevy or young ladies.  The music was supplied by the.five  piece orchestra composed of returned  soldiers and- from the numerous encores received made "a decided hit;  The committee wishes to thank all,.  those who "asststed'ln "any "way to**"  make" the dance on Friday evening  last at Mission Roller Rink the de-  cided success It proved to be and reports the  following-statement.

Mr. Bryan Charges  Incitement To Riot  In order to take care of their surplus and soft fruits a pulping plant  will be installed at Hatzic for handling this year's fruit. A company is  being formed and sufficient sto-i*  and fruit has been subscribed to  warrant running at full capacity during the berry season. The'grow-,rs  interested in this concern have a  raspberry acreage comprising seventy-five per cent of the total holdings  of the district. It is not the intention of the company to start out on a  large scale this year and a small  plant will be temporarily installed  and will be increased each year. It  is expected that eventually the manufacture of fruit juices and other byproducts will be undertaken. At  any rate this is the idea in view by  those interested in the concern. As  this district has rapidly become an  important small fruit producing centre, the need of a by-products industry has been under contemplation  for some time although till lately no  definite or concerted action had been  undertaken. The move is in the right  direction and there should be no reason, unless mis-management,' which  is unlikely, why this industry should  not prosper.  Texas claims to be the greatest bee-raising and honey-making state. This puts a sweet  flavor to the former charge of  many that it was the greatest  hell-raising place on earth.  He Says They Were Not Soldiers  On reaching Chicago William Jennings Bryan issued a statement explaining the incident at Toronto, and  declared that an organized effort to  make him unpopular in-Toronto had  been carried on previous to his arrival.     He says:  "The incident has been greatly exaggerated in many places and made  to. appear that Canada, rejected me.  In fact, not more? than two per cent  of the audience was antagonistic, and  these offenders who were said to be  returned soldiers though they wore  no uniforms would have been put  out had I not lnterefcred.'  3.60  36.00  10.00  Many Deposits  Have Been Lost  Number on Opposition Side is 110  And on Government Side 25~-  ��������� Creed and Race Division in Hour*';.

The following comes from an Ottawa correspondent: r  "No less than 135 candidates lost  their deposits, which means that  $27,000 well be turned over to the  treasury to help pay '..war expenses.  Of these 110 were Opposition and 25  Government candidates. In Ontario  41 Opposition candidates lost their  deposits and in Quebec 22 Government candidates failed to save theirs.  Every Labor candidate except Rollo,  in Hamilton, received fewer votes  than the successful candidate's majority, and so the $200 deposit with  the returning officer will not be hand  ed back.  "But the most significant result  of the election is the very manifest  credal and racial division in the now  House. In Sir Wilfrid's following  o' S2 men, only 16 are Protestants,  while in the Government following of  I'd. only a half dozen. are Roman  Catholics, and one, Dr. Chabot of  Ottawa, is a French-Canadian. One-  third of the population, according to  race, have no representative in the  cabinet, and according to creed, only  one representative, namely the Minister of Justice, Hon. Mr.  Doherty.  "In the Opposition there are only  21'members whose native tongue is  English, four from Nova Scotia, two  from Prince Edward Island, one from  New Brunswick, six from Quebec, seven from Ontario, one from Manitoba  and one from Alberta.

Did  you ever notice bow many people  carry mental sandpaper around with  then*'' One who awakens to the  brightness and joy of life and the  inutility of worry is likely to get  a setback the first hour of 'conversion.'  Father was on the "don't worry"  wagon just, ono day, and fell 'jl'f' when  he met. a wild ancl \infained streetcar  conductor who wouldn't recognize  his transfer. Mother read "Polly-  . yanna'' and was converted to the  philosophy of Gladness, but. she got  little further than the frozen-smile  stage. Willie.came home from schoo:  the same afternoon with a bevy of  classmates, and they had a rough  house on her new rugs, ancl mother  swept the whole party out with a  broom; when she got the smile  straightened out again, father came  home and asked her what in time  she was grinning at. Oh, it's work,  this ignoring of the obvious!  There is a party within my daily  vision who has progressed" just far  enough in the philosophy of Gladness to wear a waxen smile, but his  soul remains arid and unawakoned;  you couldn't pry him away from two  bits with a chisel. These frozen-  face boys are rather hurting the cult  there is such a temptation to the  irritable to hit them with a custard '  pie, or something.  However, I am ��������� going to try this  doctrine of Gladness as soon as they  get the taxes down, end the war, quit  making civic improvemests in my district and clear the neighborhood of  cats.. I dos't want to fall down on it  if I can get the track cleared of the  usual and regular obstacles to good  humor I might be pretty happy for  perhaps two or three days.  !Wf-?l  i  iwamrmjca ranr-irn 7. rtaw  K^  m^WT^TT^'^W       for  It is manufactured  tobacco in its purest  form.
