The British 'Columbia Record Is the  official •rgah of The Architectural Institute of British Columbia, federated with  The Royal Architectural Institute of  Canada, and The Engineering .& Technical Institute of British Columbia, and  as such is used by them as the medium  through which to make their official announcements  to  the  general  public.  By such selection the British Columbia Record is no wise pledged to editorial support of any policy adrance4  by these societies, but maintains an absolutely independent position on all matters subject to editorial opinion.  extremely  unpopular  and   is   sure  to  raise a storm of criticism.  One  of  the  two   alternatives  is  to  make a substantial increase in the  tax rate as based on the realty values.  Last year the rate was 24 miles net  or 26.10 gross. In order to meet art-  estimated minimum increase in civic,  expenditure this year it will be necessary to raise the rate to at least 30  mills on the dollar, if the revenue is  to be raise off land values mainly.  TAX   INCREASE   IMMINENT  Consequent upon   the disallowment  by   the   provincial   legislature   of   the  business tax and occupancy tax clauses  in  the Vancouver  charter  amendment bill, and the obvious curtailment  of the city's powers of taxation, local  taxpayers   and   property   owners   will  have to face the decidedly unpopular  alternative of an increase in the taxes  this year.    Just how much of an  increase in the tax rate will be required  to make up the necessary revenue of  the city under the old conditions  to  which the city council will now have  to revert,  it is impossible as. yet to  say.    But one thing is certain.    The  city council faces one of two alternatives in raising city revenue by taxes  this year, and either course will prove  !  Adkison & Dill  GENERAL CONTRACTORS  Specialists In Reinforced  Concrete  SIS l«e.St.  Sir. STII-lvJHt  The other alternative, and the one  which it is hinted in city hall circles  as being one most likely to be adopted,  is to increase the taxation on improvements by another 25 per cent, of their  assessed value.   Last year, when after  a   seven-year   trial,   the   council   was  forced to abandon the so-called "single   tax"   which   existed   here,   a   tax  was   placed on   improvements  to  the  extent of 25 per cent, of their assessed value.   It is believed that In order  to avoid placing any additional burden  on the already overburdened property  owner, an additional 25 per cent, will  have to be placed on all improvements,  thus bringing the taxation of improvements up to 50 per cent, of their value.  Such action would hit the owners of  down-town skyscrapers and large  apartment blocks pretty hard. But  a 30 mill rate on realty would hit  thousands of small property owners,  many of whom are already in arrears,  much harder.  POINT GREY PERMITS  2115—Annie S.

T  "FLU" HOSPITAL NOT NEEDED  LONG  After having spent more than ?35,-  000 iii the erection and equipment of  ! temporary building as an  emergency  j hospital for the treatment of Spanish  j influenza patients, the board of directors  of  the  Vancouver General   Hospital has  decided to close the  emergency  hospital   up  after  it has been  in use less than four months.   The decrease in  the  number of "flu"   cases  during the ,.last few weeks has been  so marked that there is no longer any  necessity of keeping up  the  expense  involved in maintaining1 this hospital,  eveYi with a reduced staff.   The building will be closed at the end of the  present month, but held in readiness  for use should Vancouver experience  the unwelcome visitation of a "third  wave", of the  dreaded '"rlu," such  as  has been experienced in various parts  of Europe.  Medical authorities however, believe  that with the advent or warm weather  and the increased sanitary precautions observed here, that Vancouver  will not experience any very aecided  "third wave" of the malady.
