Increased production  is  the'' answer to  the  question  of  how  we   can  reduce  living costs.  We must have production'if we are  to have lower living costs. -In modern  industry  production  is  stimulated  by-  construction.    Building is a basic industry.   If you build a home' you make I  ■business for more than a hundred correlated    and contributing    industries.

It is believed  that   the   growing   confidence   in   the  future of    business in    this    country,  evidence of which is seen on all sides,  is well justified by the facts that have  been learned through the study of the  price situation.    Evidence of the stability of business today is the fact that  during a five months' period of stagnation, the number of business failures  has been unusually low.   ■ -. .  '-' At the present tinie:there is less concern  over high   prices  than  there   is  with regard to the stability of prices.  It  appears -'that 'the  wisest'1 business  men are those who decide now to go  ahead ,with the construction of buildings and the production of goods; the  need  for  both   forms -of activity are  SO.

The  aldermen  face the alternative of either increasing the 24-mill  tax  rate  of last year  by four mills, making it 2S for,the current year, or keeping it at 24 mills net  on land by placing another 25 per cent,  increase on   the taxation of, improvements.    These latter were taxed at 25  per cent, of their value last year after  seven years of so-called single tax in  which the revenue was raised on land  values alone. .,. •'.  ; It. is believed in city?hall circles that  the aldermen will adopt the easiest  "way out of the problem by acting on  the recommendation of.Aid. Kirk, finance chairman, and tax all improvements at 50 per cent, of their value, as  predicted a couple of months ago in  these columns. It has been estimated  that owing to increased costs of operating, the expenses of the city will be  at least $450,000 higher than last year,  which will necessitate the increase in  taxation.

The Germans didn't like our style; they didn't  believe we were sincere; they didn't  believe that we had the real "stand-  up-face-the-music" quality in  us.  We had talked a great deal without  achieving a good impression.  Yet, a little demonstration and what  a change there was! The word of  Canada is heeded, not only. In Germany, but in all countries today, not  because of what we "might" do, but  because of what we did..  Lowest or any  tender not necessarily  accepted.  A. -R.
