A communication was read from  J. i3. Armstrong, Victoria,- in regard" to the city's water record. The  clerk wss instructed to clear up the  matter.  A communication from the agricultural department, Victoria, drew  attention to the importance of exterminating noxious weeds in municipalities where the department  claimed no jurisdiction. The clerk  was instructed to notify the department that the noxious weed act  was being enforced in this city.  A letter from the London Daily  Graphic stated that their  represent-  soon.

ILL'IS HE  EGGS AND BEEF  IN THE DAILY DIET  From a bulletin published by the  State Agricultural college, New  Jersey, U.S.A., entitled "Milk and  Eggs," we extract the following information re the value of eggs in  the diet.  Composition of the hen's egg  compared with moderately lean  beef:  Hen's Egg. Lean Beef  Per Cent     Per Cent.  Water  73.7 70.5  Fat   10.5 8.5  Protein ....14.8 20 0  Mineral* matter     1.0 1.0  The protein in the egg is nearly  pure albumen. The yolk of an egg  is of greater nutritive value than  the white. It is rich in the following mineral salts: Calcium, iron po  tassium and ��������� phosphorus and con  tains them in such a form that they  are readily absoj^ed aIuLJJliLi7.ficLKu--  ^IIroocryr~'ST5e.w_Tre ol an egg   is  rich in sulphur.  By comparing the composition of  the egg with that of lean meat it  will be noticed that eggs make a  good substitute for meat. Nine average sized eggs weigh one pound  and contain about the same amount  of nourishment as one pound of  beef. As eggs contain no starch or  sugar, they should be served with  such foods as rice, bread, fruit, po  "tatoes and other vegetables or made-  into desserts with sugar, tapioca,  and s milar materials.  Raw eggs are very easily digested.  The digestibility of cooked eggs depends upon the manner in which  they are cooked. They should' be  cooked   at  low  temperature.    Eeg  Pooley Amendment Deferring  c Operation Till January 1  Is Defeated,  The' premier declared -th'af it  would be impossible for the submarines to starve England.  Discussing military plans, Lloyd  George declared he had intended to  make one big move this year, but  the Russian claw of the nipper  broke.  Victoria, Aug. 16.���������A bill making prohibition effective October 1  was introduced tonight and passed  through most stages. It etands for  third reading tomorrow, and prorogation will probably be either on  Friday or Saturday. The bill was  rushed through by suspension of the  rules, which the government forced  past the house this ofternoon in  face of the opposition's protest.  Opposition Leader Bowser* said he  did not oppose the prohibition bill,  but he protested against the abrogation of 'the rules, which the govern  ment proposed, he said, simply to  enable it to dodge discussion of  charges and avoid the vote on the  lack of confidence resolution of  which notice had been given and to  avoid answering questions "several  members had asked about public  business.

The council complied with the  request.  the 'board   of  'D  the  ana  He described Premier Brewster as a  prohibitionist, but as weak in the  back on prohibition, as on other  questions'fie had to deal with in" Bis  public career.  The Pooley amendment to defer  the operation of the act to January  I was defeated tonight.  There was a Liberal party caucus  this morning, and after the ministers had spent the night considering  their carbon copies of Mr. Bowser's  no-confidence resolution, it was decided to rush the session to a conclusion before these attacks could be  debated in the house or new attacks made. Hence the resolution  suspending the rules jvas put  through this afternoon.  The prohibition question was first  brought before the house in the form  of a resolution prayiug the lieutenant governor to bring down a bill.  GRAND FORKS MAN  ENLISTS AS AVIATOR  W. J. Galipeau, one of the shift  bosses at the Granby smelter and  manager of the Grand Forks Concrete company, who is a pioneer of  this city, left on Tuesday for Vancouver to report- at-military headquarters, having enlisted in the flying corps during his recent visit to  the coast. Mr. Galipeau passed the  physical examination when he enlisted, and after reporting at Vancouver, he expects to be. sent to the  aviation training camp at Toronto.  This is, indeed, an assured fact, as  his letter of instructions stated that  he would be supplied with a uniform on his arrival at the station in  Toronto. On his trip east he expects to make a week's stop over  here.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 17. 1917  The Sun. man was treated to a gigantic surprise shock at the council meeting on Monday  evening. A publication .announced its intention of sending a representative here to write  uy the district, and failed to ask for any remuneration .for, the service. It would- not  even accept real estate advertisements at any  price. The proposition was so novel that for  the moment'it fairly carried our breath, away.  It must be admitted, however, that this offer  came from London, England." Had it come  from anywhere in this, vicinity,we should have  expected the millennium to come along the  next day.  Contrast the above with transactions of a  similar nature that flourished tiere a few years  ago. Then a local sheet vied with the coast and  Winnipeg papers in seeing who could draw  down the biggest "pile" from the city for  stereotyped "write-ups." Are we degenerating  or becoming enlightened?  '.<rii*Wflj������i*<-,*Wwrv *jf a_,"er  A majority ofthe country papers of British  Columbia appear to be printed only for the  purpose of giving publicity to the moving picture shows. The "movies" have developed  into a huge fake.    They obtained a foothold  creased, until now it costs as much to see a  few flickering, nonsensical figures on a screen  as it formerly cost to see an artistic dramatic  production.  Injustice discourages more people than  hard work docs. What is the use of a man  slaving six days per week for an existence,  when fakirs live in affluence by the bestowal  of favoritism in return for flattery?  Let men who are rejected by the recruiting  sergeants for the army be organized into military battalions to save the harvest, is a suggestion made by the Canadian food controller.  i What about the cream.used in ice-cream in  these clays of the high price of butter? There  is room for a saving there.  -The New Westminster Columbian discusses . a subject  of great importance to the residents? nf many municipalities "in British Columbia in tlie following manner:  "Is New Westminster carrying out tha spirit of .war  sacrifice, of sharing the" burden, by holding a tax sale of  city property in arrears of taxes for 1914, the year of the  opening of .the war1?  "This question was put to The British 'Columbian by a  property owner who is just back - from England. There,  he declared, the principle was to make common sacrifice,  share common burdens, and he believed they wheuld not  in the mother country dream of a tax sale, thus penalizing the man who owns property and giving a premium to  tlie man who buys.  "There is food for thought in this view .of the case, and  in discussing it The British Columbian has no thought of  giving the impression that the tax sale which is se't for  next, month could be, or should be, postponed. The rate  payer quoted was obviously primarily concerned with his  own difficulties cansed by the proposed tax sa'e. .Yet, as  the war is still some years to run, certainly, for next.it  may   be for three years more, he raised a question that is  (fr*  r%  OPTICAL  SERVICE  We.are refitting our Optical Department,  and intend making it one of the best in  the Interior. ^/Lll work done by an  Expert Optician.

The wisdom of holding fairs and exhibitions  in war-time is as much of a debatable question as is the question of the advisable of  holding tax sales. A large number ofthe people seem to think that it would have been better if the government had cut out the fair  grants, and pared down expenses generally,  instead of saddling the burdensome surtax on  the farmers. They have as much right to  their opinion as those who are always clamoring for "easy money" from Victoria.  The surtax is about as popular in this valley as the rattlesnake. The farmers would  like the extra tax better if it would be as rare  as his snakeship.  In the event of a federal election, there .will  be a new alignment of party lines on the question of conscription. The defection from  both parties has already set in, and when the  date of the election is set most of the electors  will have their minds made up as to which  party they will affiliate with.  A soldier of the American expeditionary  force now in France, writing to his parents in  Minnesota, says that he likes France a great  deal better than he did the arid plains of  western Texas. Perhaps after the war the  trend of immigration will be from west to  east, instead���������of from east to west.  Canada and the United States must cut  down their normal wheat consumption by  160,000,000 bushels to meet the needs of  Great Britain and the allies.

And all  are  Britain, France and the other a   es, and  the/not doin-that"  re'veriile producing holdings in the city, although improved  and not held as speculative ventures, as.well as those who  have large holdings, some acquired in a real estate gamble.  "But is a tax sale this year or next or next���������while the  war lasts���������the fairest way of dealing with the situation  of unpaid taxes? And especially in this city, where it has  been represented that the taxation on land holdings, improvements not being taxed, is necessary to meet sinking  fund and interest on the bonded debt?  "The OMner in arrears says-it is not.  New Westminster,  he points out, is alone in holding  a 1914   tax sale.    Victoria  has not even   held a 1913 tax sale.    It is not carrying out the spirit by which Great Britain   is  erideavor  ing to win this war to push any citizen to the wall, and it  is not good business for the city's future in the eyes of the  investing world to give no consideration to  the citizen  or  the   investor   who   has   put his money in the city's real  estate, has spent money on improvements and  has. possi  bly  staked   his  all  on the future of the city.   If the tax  sale method of compelling payment of taxes is pressed dur  ing the next succeeding years of the war as   the  financial  conditions become more difficult to meet, what will the re  suit   be  but to push many a land owner to the.wall .who,  in good faith and   with   a confidence   in the city that has  been an asset in the past and would be in the future,  has  invested his all in New Westminster.  "And what applies to New Westminster applies to  other municipalities. But there is the other side to be  considered. The city is a community propostion where the  burdens are equally distributed as the advantages are  shared by all. The city has its bond payments to meet,  and if the delinquent taxpayer held city bonds wonld he  be any more lenient than the mortgage holder, in regard  to his interests? The citizens who are paying their taxes  by hard labor and sacrifice, should they be discriminated  against by the land owner who will have his innings again  after the war? In other words, where does the principle  of bearing the common burden begin or end?  "It would appear that taxes should be paid. But if  not, what then? Is the delinquent prepared to go before  a court of the land and lay bare all his necessitous cir  cumstances? Should the citizen who labors hard hours to  pay his taxes, be they large or small, be compelled to suffer civic inconvenience 'owing to taxes to the amount of  $100,000 being unpaid?  "The question may be viewed from many angles. A fair  solution is fraught with difficulties. It may bo advisable  to postpona tax sales until after the war unless in cases of  of dire necessity. But this presupposes that the taxpayer  in arrears.is not shirking his duty and   taking  advantage  cA Snap, If Taken Soon  S-room house and two lots on Garden Street.'
