The information, on which the  board based its report was gathered  in between 40 and 50 cities throughout the United States.

STATISTICS    DISPROVE    RENT  PROFITEERING.  Those who have been making the  charge of rent profiteering on mere  .supposition as applied to Vancouver, will be able, to derive little satisfaction from the report of the American   Industrial   Conference   Board.  ter   was   derived   from .Chambers   of  which  was   made  public   a  few  days   _ " :'  Commerce,  real estate   boards,   brokers  and  charitable  and   civic  institutions   in   nearly   one   hundred   cities.  The  figures show  that  in New York  rents   have   advanced   less   than   20  per   cent,   as   compared   with    1914,  while in Philadelphia,  Baltimore and  Cleveland,    the    advance    has    been  about   the  same.    In   some  cities,  it  is   reported,'   ther.e   has   been   no   appreciable     change - in    rent    figures,  while ,in   Detroit   and   some   of   the  industrial   cities   near   the   Canadian  border, there, has been  only a 15  to  20   per   cent,   increase.

ON   EVE   OF   GREATEST  DEVELOPMENT   IN   HISTORY  For many months we have expressed the opinion that a great part  of/ mining- activity in the northwest  during the present year would be  witnessed in British Columbia. Recent events seem to prove that we  were right, says Northwest; .Alining  Truth. Unless all signs fail, the  province is on the eve of the greatest mineral development in her history,  with, every, assurance  that the  the full mineral history there hidden  will have been written.  ago.    This  report  was  based   on   fig-  * ures   compiled .in   representative   industrial   communities  throughout  the  United States, many of the cities being   close   to   the   Canadian   border,  ■where rents and prices were practically   the   same   as   in   Canada.   .The  board had been ordered  to ascertain-  the actual increase in the cost of liv- j"  ing   since   the   start   of   the   war   in  1914.
