September 15  Victoria, March 30.���������The forthcoming plebiscite on the questiou of  the amended prohibition act versus  government sale will be held some  time between August 1 and the middle of September. These are the  dates which Attorney.General Farris  tentatively fixed last evening as the  probable early and late limits.  Asked as to what turn the referendum question will take, Hon. Mr.  Farris said he was not yet prepared  to make a.statement in advance of  the bill which will be introduced  within a few days providing for the  referendum.  "I can say, however," he said,  "that the issue will be made very  clear. The question which will be  propounded will be a straight and  direct issue as between the amended  prohibition act and a measure of  government sale and control."  Premier Oliver confirmed the  statement of the attorney-general as  to the policy of having a raferendum  in the late summer.  "My own idea," stated Premier  Oliver, "is that the referendum  should be held as soon as possible  after the compiling of the new voters'  list."  What machinery will be employed  to give effect to the popular will in  fhe event of change to government  sale being decided upon the premier  said he would prefer not to discuss  at this stage as being premature. He  intimated that the government will  be prepared to deal with the situation should it arise.  Should fhe amended prohibition  act carry, intimated Attorney-General Farris, it may foroshadow the  taking over of all the police departments in the province and the reorganizing of-them into one province-wide wide police force under  the control of the Victoria authorities. The attorney-general has the  authority vested in him by virtue of  his office to take over the policing  of the province.  It is an open secret that a great  deal of the trouble in carrying out  the prohibition law in the upper  country lay in having police boards  who were unsympathetic to prohibition and turned a mind eye to  breeches of the law.  It is stated that the provincial estimates contain an appropriation of  ������75,000 for the construction of the  Cascade-Roseland link of the inter-  provincial highway.  A.

Dance after the program-  Victoria, March 30.���������The financial return of the mineral industry  in British Columbia for last year,  according to Hon. Mr. Hart, has  been one of real progress.  The 1919 output is greater than  in any year prior to 1916, when the  special war production at. wartime  prices began.  "Our production'of silver," reports Mr. Hart, "shows an increase,  the output being estimated at 3,-  667,516 ounces, worth $3,871,063,  which in quantity is 169,344 ounces  and in value ������6.55,193 better than  in the previous year. The added  value is due, to some extent, to the  rise in the market value of the  metal.  "In zinc also last year's figures,  iu respect of production, are an improvement. The 1919 output is  placed at 43,694,683 pounds as compared ���������������������������"with 41,772,916 pounds in  1918, or an increase of 1,921,663  pounds. Owing to the decline in  value of the metal, the explanation  of which lies in the lesser demand,  the value of the larger production of  the past year is not as great as that  of the smaller output of the previous  year, the difference amounting to.  ������181,237.  ���������'The total amount of lead pro  duced in 1919 is estimated to have  been 32,134,136 pound, valued at  $1,658,121. This represenrs, as  compared with the previous year, a  decrease in quantity of 11,765,526  pounds, and with the lower market  $1,269,986..  "As to the production of the colleges of the province, it is estimated that the gross output was  2,504,423 long tons, of which 117,-  205 tons were made into coke, leaving the net production of coal at  2,257,213 tons.  "Generally the mining situation  in this province is encouraging. From  the prospector to the large corporation, in fact among all classes identified with the development of our  mineral resources, there is evident a  spirit of enterprise and optimism  that is extremely gratifying. The  world markets for the chief commercial metals appear to be settling  down after a long period of fluctuation and uncertainty. In every mineral district development is in progress; tho country is being prospected  and new properties located and  opened up; old properties, particu  larly thoBe whose ores contain silver  values, are being placed on a shipping basis; the larger companies are  extending their facilities for the  maintenance and increasing of output and for the treatment of the  complex ores peculiar to some parts  of the province; and new and pioui  ising mineral areas,especially in the  northwestern section, are under development, giving indications of  such a nature as to juntify the highest expectations of permanent in  crease in our mineral production.''

Neilly, of  Ward 1, Edmonds, is likely to be  disqualified from office for doing  four days' work for the school board.  This was the off band opinion of  George Cassady. one of -the municipal solicitors to the Burnaby council last week. J. W. Dixie,in a letter  to the council, stated that beginning  February 3, Councilman Neilly did  four days' work for the school  board, for which be was paid the  sum of ������23.  Mr. Cassady, in addressing the  couucil, stated that it was a very  serious situation and he would not  make any afficial statement until he  had fully gone into the question, but  he added that off-hand he was of  the opinion that it called for Councilman Neilly's disqualification,, as  the Municipal Act states that no  councilman candoany work or contract for any work for either the  council or the school board, and  each councillor swore to this in taking his oath of office. Mr. Cassady  will make his official report at a  speci'al meeting of the council. The  school board will also be asked to  furnish all inforuualioiyt has in connection with the case.  Clerk Moore stated that he had a  warrant in the office from the school  board authorizing that the money  be paid.  Councilman Neilly was elected as  a labor candidate, and Mr. Dixie,  the writer of the letter,was his nearest opponent. Councilman Neilly  made no statement, as be did not  remain for the council meeting.  A later dispatch from Edmonds  says: J. W. Dixie again came into  limelight at the Burnaby couneil  meeting Tuesday evening, when in a  communication be threatened lo  have a writ issued against T. T.  Neilly, ex councillor for Ward 2, for  what he terms is a psnalty against  tbe municipality for sitting in the  council after he had been disqualified. Mr. Dixie stated that if the  council did not have the writ issued  before Wednesday, nomination day,  then he would have to on behalf of  his clients which are certain ratepayers of Ward 2. As the council,  without discussion or comment, re-.  ferred tbe letter to the finance corn-j  mtttee, it now remains to see just  what action Mr. Dixie will take.  Provincial Government  Let a Contract to Test  the  Properties in That  Camp  The provincial govenment has let  a contract to Mitchell & Co., of the  coast, to test the properties in  Franklin camp with a diamond,  drill. Mr. Mitchell arrived in the  city yesterday with tbe necessary  apparatus, and will proceed up the  river at once. Next week, it is expected, boring operations will commence on the "black lead," between  the Maple Leaf and Gloucester prop  erties.        .  SASKATCHEWAN MAN  ACQUIRES IMPROVED  NORTH FORK FARM  Mrs. G. A. S. Bell yesterday disposed, through the C. V. Meggitt  agency, of her fine ranch on the  North Fork to George E. DeGraw,  of Waldeck, Sask., the consideration  being $6500, exclusive of the live:  stock. This is one of tbe best im  proved farms in the district north  of the city, and the purchaser expresses jbimself as well pleased with  his bargain.  This   reai  estate agency   reports  having other deals pending.  Way down in Florida they are  combatting the high cost of  clothing by forming "overall clubs "  The members dress in overalls.  Even business men are joining  these clubs.  J. A. McLaughlin, formerly with  the Grauby company iuAhoenix, has  accepted ������a position as foreman at the  Canada Copper Corporation's mine at  Copper mountain.

Between these two ele-  merits of citizens there should be no friction or  division.

We hope these mischief  workers will see the error of their way  and reform before they do much damage. The  ��������� development;bf the-district to its present stage  is almost entirely the work of the pioneers, or  old-timers, and they  are entitled to enjoy in  peace all they possess. Most of them have obtained their  possessions by hard work.   The  same opportunities are open to the newcomer  whois willing to work, because there   is  still  much undeveloped land and innumerable  latent resources here  that can   be transferraed  into wealth by men who possess the energy and  foresight to take advantage of the riches which  nature  has  placed in our soil and forests and  hidden in our mines, and   which can  now   be  extracted without the necessity  of enduring  any of the hardships  which the pioneers were  A bill has been introduced in the provincial  legislature to license-real estate agents.    The  measure has many  good  features.   When  it  comes into force it will have the effect of making realty  men act  in  a legitimate manner.  Some real estate dealers insist} on  an  exclusive listing, and still include a "joker" in their  form, making it really perpetual by the following wording, or something similar': ."Should.I  decide to cancel this listing I agree to give you  30 clays' notice in writing.'    If this "joker" is  analyzed anyone can see just how the property  is tied   up.   Open listings  are all that is required, and all that a legitimate,  honest  real  estate man needs. ;If he makes a sale he gets  his commission, as he has earned it; if he personally .did not make the sale, he hasn't earned  it'and should not have it.  ^  Headache,;nervousness, stomach trouble and many other  ���������bodily ills catr.'h*-. traced directly to defective eyesight.

Mr. Hart,  minister of fiuance. announced that  municipalities will be given power  to collect a So service tax from every  male between tbe ages of 21 and 05  lb will take the place of the poll tax.  Municipalities will also be given  half the amount of the amusement  tax, which is being increased at the  rate of 1 cent on 15 and 20 cent  tickets and 2 cents on 25 cent  tickets. On higher priced tickets the  tax rate will he practically doubled.  It is estimated that Vancouver .will  derive-5100,000 from the service tax  and at least 8150,000 from its share  of the amusement tax.  The motor lice.nse tax is to be  changed from a flat rate of 810 per  car to a graduated senle based on the  value and weight of the car. The  revenue from this source is to go into  a fund for payment of interest and  sinking fund on a So,000,000 loan  to be used for the construction of  main trunk roads throughout the  province.
