The fifty fourth anniversary of  the Order of Knights of Pythias was  observed by the local lodge on Tuesday evening, March 20, by the an-  . nual roll call and the dedicating of  an Honor Roll of members of the  lodge who have donned khaki and  joined the colors. There was'a large  number of letters received from absent members of the lodge for the  roll call.  The following .officers took part  in the ceremony of dedicating the  honor roll: R. J. Gardner, CO.; R.  Blu'minauer, V.C.; P. C. Hayman  Prelate; R. E. Jenne, M. of W.;  Frank Latham, K. of R. and S.  Klaus Scheer, M. of A.

After an appetizing collation, had  been served, dancing   was indulged  in until a late  hour.;  There was  a  large    crowd   in   attendance,   and  everybody spent a pleasant evening.  earth have .dedicated their lives,  their fortunes ahd their sacred honor  to the cause which they espouse.  Thq call upon the fortunes of the  people of Canada is to take the form  of a graduated tax on all incomes  of $1500 and over enjoyed by all  unmarried persons, or widows or  widowers without dependent children, and of$3000 and over enjoyed  by all other persons, as well as by  all corporations-and joint stock  companies.  The department oi finance is now  calling for the filing of the necessary  forms, filled out as required, before  the 81st of March. While penalties  for failure to carry out the requirements of the act are provided,-it is  confidently expected that the people  of Canada, jealous of their right to  play a major part in the conflict,  will respond to this latest call in a  spirit of quiet patriotism.

American corn will be coming more  freely into Canada as the fine  weather develops and transportation  difficulties lessen. ���������'Every farmer  should realize that we are at war,  that allied Europe is hard pressed,  and determine to do the best he can,  each under his own   circumstances.  Grand Forks  Out and  File Income  It was inevitable that an income  war tax "law should have been  placed on the statute books. The  growing demands made upon Canada, as one of the free uations of the  world, engaged with the life and  Heath battle with the forces of barbarism, and the necessity of distributing the burden as equitably as  possible, made the imposition of a  tax, based on ability to pay, merely  a matter of time.  All the great nations engaged  in  the conflict have found it   necessary  to make  the  income   tax   one   of  their principal sources  of   revenue.  Among the more striking  evidences  of the will to win in these  times  of  sacrifice,   is   the  spirit   with which  the people of Great  Britain���������upon-  whose shoulders rests the major portion of the war's financial  burden���������  are going about the work of supplying the sinews of war.   The   people  Victoria,    March     16.���������Deputy  Minister of Agriculture  W. E. Scott  announces that three of the new motor tractors, obtained under the Dominion government's, new plan   of  distribution,   have   reached  British  Columbia.and are now   at   Vernon  and   Grand   Forks.    These tractors  came in response to three  applications to the provincial   department,  which   forwarded   a check- in'each  case   to the federal   agricultural department. The tractors weigh   2700  pounds apiece with filled- tank and  are guaranteed to  plow an  average  of eight acies per day.    Tde federal  department   is   securing these tractors upon application at S795 apiece,  freight prepaid todistr\ outing points  in the   northwest.    Tl-ey   are   pur  chased at Dearborn, Mich., at  $750  each, the $45 paying   freight,   duty  and all other charges to distribution  points.  Insomuch as British Columbia's  seeding is much earlier than in the  other provinces, the deputy minister of this province has taken up  with Ottawa tbe desirability'of having tractors available when they are  needed. In the meantime Mr. Scott  is receiving applications tor tractors,  the applications being forwarded to  the federal department.  Those who are crying to the government to provide feed for hogs and  bitterly criticising officials  for  fiil-  ure co supply   sufficient   bran   and  shorts,    should   take a   look at the  facts,    Canada   does   not   produce  sufficient   bran    and   short   to feed  hogs in normal times, and   recourse  to other feeds has always been necessary. In the effort, however,  to  aid  farmers,   an   export   embargo   was  placed on mill pfi'al and the price of  bran   and   shorts   was fixed by fair  proportion to the price of wheat and  several dollars a ton   lower than  in  the United States.   This,   of  course,  was satisfactory as far  as   it ..went,  but  tha   trouble- was that it  could  not possibly   go  far  enough.    Not  enough   bran   and   shorts  are produced   in   Canada   to  go   around  Canadian mills from   September   1,  1915, to February 1,   191S, ground  at the rate of 18,000,000  bushels  of  wheat   a   montb.-whieh was:a very  high   proportion   as   compared   to  normal.

Only 120,000,000 bushels   of    feed    can   he  produced in a  month, or 2,000,000 pounds a   day.

The helmet  is nicely padded on "the inside, and  is   quite! heavy  and constructed to  protect the head   from   bullets.

It was over a  front of fifty miles. Official reports  are very brief, but correspondents at  the scene tell of the terrific storm of  artillery fire that burst over the lines  held by Field Marshal Haig's men.  Haig reports that though the 'lines  were pierced at certain points, nowhere was the objective gained.  The   bombardment   began   at   5  o'lpck  Thursday   morning,   just before   the- early   spring   dav/n    w-d-i  breaking over eastern France.

Describing the battle, Andrew  Bonar Law informed the house of  commons that lightly held positions of the British line had been  withdrawn, but said there was no  need for alarm on the part of the  country.

Hog raising has become a  sty-lish. occupation in Canada.      .'���������'���������'":  'ofifeer  FRIDAY,. MARCH 22, 1918  City officials tell us that the most .difficult  problem  .they*- find  in financing the city has  arisen out of the increased < cost  for  electric  power charged by the West Kootenay. Power  & Light company.    Wo have never been able  to see clearly why this raise  in  price should  have been made, because we do not believe it  costs  the  waters in .Kootenay river any more  to flow over Bonnington falls now-than it did  before   the war.      However, the increase was  added to the price, and the city has to grapple  with a vexed reality, and not a theory.    The  incident shouldjserye as a warning.    The ci^y  should not place ftself entirely at  the  mercy  of a corporation.  The city owns a water power plant for generating electric power. It is said to be in  first-class" condition and of sufficient capacit}'  to supply the city with all the power it needs  at present. The only tiling required to operate it, apparently is a little bigger flow of  water-in the North Fork. A resolution was  recently adopted by the c'itj council to dispose of the plant. But in view of the action of  the West Kootenay company, it look to us as  if it mio-ht be a wise thing to allow that reso-  lution to remain inactive for: a while. Eventualities might arise that wouid make the plant  highly useful and very profitable for the city.  Circumstances might arise whereby tlie Granby company would require very little, or none  at'all, of the water in the North Fork, in  which event the plant could operated at a  profit. The city is not wholly within the grasp  of the West Kootenay company as longxas it  owns this plant. The sum that could be realized for it under the present depressed industrial conditions would not enrich the city  very much.  We came across the statement recently that  when "Asinius Follio presented to Rome its  first public library he placed it in the Tern pie  of Liberty." What a fine sense of the fitness  of thinu'S As'nius Pollio must have had! Light  has ahvavs been a dangerous thing for tyrants.  Victor Hugo Avas forever attacking  because it meant darkness and bondage.  The Toronto Globe places the case against  Sir Joseph .Flavelle very fairly and in full harmony with prevailing sentiment, in the'following article:  "A paragraph clipped from the Calgary Alhertan,  and republished by The Globe in the Spirit of the Press,  brings from H. H. Fudger the protest'that' The Globe,  after helping to create an unfair and unwarranted pre  judicfi against Sir Joseph Flavelle, proceeds to foster  and spread abroad the poisonous prejudice. He expresses the hope that The Globe will cease to contribute  to a propaganda amounting to persecution which.he be  lieves every right thinking citizen deplores.  "If by a strained interpretation of The Albertan's  paragraph it can be construed as a suszgpstion that Sir  Joseph Flavelle in the conduct of his business broke the  law of the land; The Globe desires to dissociate ttseP  from The Albertan's inference. The Globe has never  suggested, and does not now suggest, that in charging  the British gover/imeat and the (people of Canada prices  for cured meats"which yielded SO per cent on the capi-  tal invested in the business���������after paying all overhead  charges, includi.ng'the pre arr^iged rate of interest on  the. borrowed money temporarily invested in the business���������Sir Joseph Flavelle broke any law of Canada.  "'What he did, and what has grievously disappointed  many citizens who were not hostile to Sir Joseph, and  had not the remotest desire to persecute him, was to set  aside his own laudable dictum, to bell with profits,'  addressed to men whose capital was invested in war  work, and permit those"engaged in the conduct of his  own. business to.securo a rate ��������� of profit on an essential  food for soldidi'S far bjyor)d ihit dreamt of by most o"  the men. to Whom that dictum was "addressed. It was  not the press that created the pr<-judice'against Sir  Joseph Flavelle. He was himself the creator of that  prejudice.  "Mr. Fudger states that no man, so far as anyone  may judge, administers the income derived from his  business more liberally in th"puhlic interest for patriotic, philanthropic, and benevolent objects than Sir  Joseph Flavelle That is doubtless true, but, after all,  it has nothing to do with the case. The question is not  as to what Sir Joseph Flavelle does with his income,  but as to the conditions under which he makes it The  touchstone is that of tbe general applicability of Sir  Joseph's idea regarding profi's. If all contractors providing foodstuffs or war material for the allied govern  ments had charged profits amounting to SO per cent per  annum on the capital invested'in their business���������apart  from temporary borrowings on capital account���������the war  would nave been.ended long ago with a Germany vie  tory, due to the bankruptcy of the allies. The already  tremendous war debts of the allied nations would be  impossibly high,and a few war contractors would hold in  their hands millions of dollars' worth of the people's  promises to pay.
