The  mayor and all the aldermen were  present.  CJEL Niles, manager of the Bank  of Commerce, addressed the council  and stated the conditions on   which  the   bank  was prepared to advance  the funds for the redemption of  the  bonds which  mature  on   the   15th  inst.    It appeared    quite   probable  that a satisfactory solution   will   be  arrived at.   The question   was   discussed at considerable length, and a  number of communications  bearing  on the subject  were read   from   the  inspector   of    municipalities    and  officials of the Union of British Columbia Municipalities.  The chairman of the finance com.  mittee was.instructed to communicate with eastern brokerage firms  with a view of securing a market  for the debentures tb be issued this  "  months.,  The board of works and the cemetery committee Vere given permission to work the prisoner now serving a sixty days' sentence in the city  jail.  It was decided to hold the court  revision in the council chamber on  Juue 7.  The agreement between the city  and tbe Ci-.y Cartage re team work  was ratified.  Applications  for the  position   of  city electrician  and superintendent  ofthe waterworks department  were  received from: John  D.

FRIDAY, MAY 7, 1920  The Liberals throughout British Columbia  are completing arrangements for their appropriate contribution to the Laurier monument  fund. The subscription list was to have been  closed on March 17, but owing to the peculiar  circumstances, as to distance and transportation facilities, and the prevalence of the influenza epidemic, which has^militated against a  -very'thorough canvass ofthe outlying sections  of the province, It will be sdme time yet  before the secretary of British Columbia Liberal association, who has charge ofthe collection of this fund in the province, will be able  to forward a complete account of the contribution from British Cohmibia Liberals. The  .secretary anticipates that when the fund is  closed a very substantial contribution will be  forwarded to Ottawa towards tlie cost of erecting the one hundred thousand dollars monu  ment as a memorial from the Liberals of Can  ada to their late chieftain.  A member of parliament has made a spectacular stand against the hmh cost of living in  England. Pie bought three clothing factories  and is manufacturing men's clothing to be  sold at prices ranging from $9.25 to ������14.50 a  suit. So eagerly did men rush to take ad vantage of the low prices that before 8 o'clook on  the morning when the first advertisement appeared a line of a hundred yards long was  waiting to get into the store. Soon traffic was  blocked, and tlie police were called to maintain order. The demand for the clothes has  continued ever since, and at least one firm of  professional tailors has begun to make low-  priced suits.  Mesopotamia, which is supposed to be the  site of the Garden of Eden, is costing the  British government, according to Winston  Spencer Churchill,something between seventy-  five and a hundred million dollars a year. It  is not the first time that a garden has proved  to be an expensive luxury, but it seems too  bad to jolt that dear old lady who "found  great support in that comforting word Mesopotamia."  A woman who declared in' court, that her  husban i was the meanest man in England had  unusual grounds for tlie cha'ue. During the  sugar shortage, she said, he kept his personal  supply of sugar in a separate bowl, which he  left every morning with ������a fly in it and the  cover on. If the llv was not there when he  came home at night, ho jumped to the conclusion that so mo one had taken some of his su-'ar,  and he was very disagreeable about it.

Tale  of   Two   Cities  JTL  Tho Tax Reform League of Eastern Canada  makt'.s the following comparison boi.we'-i) the  method of taxing  prnn^rrv  in   Toronto, Out.,  ami   ii Svd:  ������j *-'  The taxpayers in Toronto who pay nearly '3  per cent in taxes should compare their position with that of the citizens of Sydney, New  South Wales, the most populous state in Au-  tralia, In that city there is no tax on the pro-,  ducts of industry or on business. The man  who puts land to its worst use is taxed as  much as the man who puts it to its best use.  There is no penalty for improving.  Toronto taxpayers pay nearly 3 per cent  taxes on the assessed value of their houses,  shops, factories, and offices, and also on their  business.  Sydney taxpayers pay no taxes on houses,  shops, factories,-workshops, offices or business-  A Toronto manufacturer puts up a factory  at a cost of $50,000 aiid pays a tax of $1500  on his improvement, besides a tax of $750 on  his business.  A Sydney manufacturer puts up a factory  at the same price, and pays not one cent on  the improvement or on his business.  A Toronto merchant rents a shop costing  $1.0,000 and pays a yearly tax of $300, besides  his businees tax, which varies according; to  the business.  A Sydney merchant pays not on cent tax  on his building or on his business.  A Toronto resident erects a house costing  $2500 on a lot costing $1000. On the house he  pays a tax of $75 and $.30 on the land.  A Sydney resident pays no tax on his house,  and only about $20 on his land. "  All municipal expenses are met in Sydney  by a tax rate of 2 per cent, whether the land  is kf-^pt vacant or used for a factory, a store, a  home, an office or a workshop.  For -more than sixty years the Toronto  method of taxation existed in Sydney. 'Then  a partial application of reduction of taxes on  improvements was. tried with such success that  on April 13, 1916, the city .council, with only  two opposing, abolished all taxes on improvements.  As the city of Sydney grows,'instead ef allowing the speculators to appropriate'the increased value of the land and thus impoverish  industry, the value of the land will be -'-taken  for the public benefit. If o one will be taxeel  for exercising beneficent,'honest industry and  no-one will be allowed to appropriate wealth  he has not produced. The taxation will be imposed on the bare value ofthe land, and each  will then pay, not according to the benefit he  confers, but according to the benefit he receives. .  In Toronto the total assessment amounts to  $620,000,000, macle of of $300^000,000 on the  land and $320,000,000 on buildings, income  and business. The assessment of the land is  notoriously low. It should be approximately  #600,000,000; but let us assume that it is only  $500,000,000, instead of the assessor's figu.ies,  6300,000,000.  If the assessment were placed on the value  of the land alone, 8500,000,000 as it should be,  the rate would be approximately 30 mills on  on the dollar. On a lot valued at S600, and a  building-valued at $2400, at 28^- mills the tax  on the S3000 would be ������85.50. But on the land  alone, valued at its proper amount, ������1000 instead of ������600, as at present, and at a rate of  :30 mills, the tax would be $30 instead of  ������85.50, a reduction of -3-A9.50, less than one  half.  Increased taxes and increased assessment  on the land alone would so far discourage  speculation aud force the land into the market, that there would be a very substantial  reduction in the price ef the land. At the same  time there being no taxes on buildings, there  would be every stimulous to increase the number of houses and thus reduce rents. This  would increase the demand for labor, thus increasing wages. At the same time it would  compel a number of parasitic speculators to  become active producers. Ali these influenc-.���������-.  mean greater prosperity���������less for the parasites  and more for the producers.  With this same system apphed to om federal taxation, it would so benefit industry and  stop monopoly that there is no reason why  every man should not have a home of his own  without a mortgage.  ;   IF YOUR CHILI)  Ts not the brightest in the claps?, it  may he because tbe eyesight is defective, ..,-������������������'���������''  THE'RIGHT GLASSES  often  make  a   surprising difference  with   a   child's progress   in   school  work .-���������"������������������������������������  Bring your children herp to have  their eyes examined find fitted to  the proper glasses  A.

Development on the lower level showed  the presence of a large dyke, which  materially decreased the area which  was expected to have been productive.  Ore was encountered below this, and  the possibilities have not been entirely  exhausted.  The Phoenix Amalgamated, at  Phoenix, and the Number Seven, at  Boundary Falls, were not operated.

BUSINESS <������MAN,  have you ever thought  that advertising put? you in  good company? It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the company he keeps.  When you join the ranks of  the advertisers you join the  ranks of the biggest and  most successful merchants  and manufacturers in the  world.  How many large concerns  can you name in any large  city in the country? Name  them and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are leaders in their  lines. Ask your friends to  name the most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name ot a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is true of  smaller citiej1 and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  ^  Jsgps' in Tiie S  m$mm THE   SUN.
