HUGE  JUMP   IN   SAVINGS  DEPOSITS.  An   increase   of   thirty-one   millions  of dollars in savings deposits, after a  recovery of nineteen  millions   of  the  previous   month,   is   the   notable   feature of the January statement of the  chartered  banks of Canada.    The increase goes a long way to prove that  unemploymnet is not so extensive in  the   country  as  has   been   advertised.  When the Victory Loan was placed in  the market last year, first payments on  that   loan   brought -savings   deposits  down sharply and the rapid recovery  towards the end of.'the, year, the turning in December of a 137 million decrease to a 19 million increase went  a long way to corroborate the popular  impression that payments on the loan  had been inainly made at the time of  The decrease in current loans in  December was changed to an increase  of 4 millions in January, and circulation registered another important decrease. Call loans, botli abroad and  at home, showed decreases and both  total assets and. total liabilities continued on the down grade, although in  both cases they are more than 300  millions above January figures for last  year.

The Cork-Province mine expects to  produce marketable ore at the rate of  600 tons monthly when the operation  of its mill is started on a three-shift  basis, says a Kaslo report.. Half of  the product will be lead-silver and the  remainder zinc, according to a previous experience. Operation will be  inaugurated in April and not great period is expected to elapse before the  plant is running near capacity.  The quantity 0f ore broken in preparation for milling operations is estimated at 2000 tons.  Plans for important development  were laid out by Manager W. E.  Zwicky in the period of inactivity at  the mine. They include an exploration of the Superior vein, which parallels a fissure from which ore having high silver values was shipped, the  extension of, the drift In a northerly  direction to reach a lime band where  it is believed the usual ore replacement will be found, and an extension  cf a whize on ore from the No. 4. level  to a point 100 feet, therefrom.

The reasons  why  this is the case stand  out so plainly  that there is no need of attempting to  explain or analyze the situation.    Tlie  building operations in this country are  about one-fourth of normal, and conditions are all against any one buying  anything   not   needed   for   immediate  consumption.   The paint trade realizes  that the situation is  one  that cannot  be forced, and is waiting as philosophically as   possible   for  better'days.  The general opinion seems to be that  the   dullest   period    has    been    gone  through; with,  and  that  from  now  on  there will be a stead}' improvement in  conditions.

It is pointed out that between now and  the end of April no fewer than .84  large vessels are booked to arrive at  Australian ports.  Although the April bookings are not  complete, no fewer than 700,000 tons  jof overseas shipping is due to reach  j Australian ports. In March it is calculated that there will be over fifty  steamers, representing nearly 500,000  tons, in Sydney harbor. In addition  there will be the steamers running in  the ordinary Australian and New Zealand and the Pacific trade, together  with many ships from the Pacific  Coast of America.  England is said to be making giant  strides in procuring foodstuffs from  Australia so as to reduce the high cost  of living. Advices state that information reecived from the British government shows that a great fleet of merchant vessels is booked for Australian   trade. ),';....

Ireland, secretary o'f the commission, the provincial  government,   after   being, interviewed  on"the question, has adopted the same  stand   as   the   Dominion   government,  and* positively  refuses  to  accept any  financial ^responsibility, in case of loss  in   the   erection   of   these   houses   for  soldiers.    All that the provincial government will do  towards   the  scheme  in  addition to allocating  the ?300,000  which is Vancouver's share of the ?2f>,-  000,000 appropriated  for that purpose  by the Dominion government, is to contribute  $300  towards  the  purchase of  each homesite in the city.

This $300 grant is in the nature of a gratuity from the government  but the cost of the house must be repaid to the city on a five per cent, in-  } terest basis extended over a suggested  ! period of 20 years.  '    It was also intimated by Hon.  Mr.  Pattullo   that   if   Vancouver   did   not  wish  to accept the  financial  responsibility involved in the spending of the  5300,000,   the   money   would   be   available  for other municipalities ror better housing.    The    minister    thought,  j however   that   Vancouver   should   not  hesitate  on   the   responsibility  of  administering the    fund,    as    Montreal,  Toronto,  Ottawa  and    other    leading  eastern cities had cheerfully accepted  the  responsibility  on   behalf  of  their  returned soldier citizens.  Commissioner Ireland reported also  that to date 174 soldier applicants had  registered to take advantage of the  provisions of the bill. Of these 140  were eligible as residents of the city,  the other 34 being ineligible through  residence beyond the city boundaries.  The Commission, after considerable  debate on the problem, passed a re-  eolution suggesting to the city-council that if the financial responsibility  for the carrying out of the housing  scheme is to be "placed upon the 'city,  the ratepayers should have an oppor-|  tunity to pass upon the measure before  We have a full imichinu shop equipment,  lathes,   drill   presses,    milling   machine,  taps and dies,  emery stands,  etc.  1—SxS   Air   Compressor,   40   H.P.
