Tbe mayor and all the aldermen
were present af tbe adjourned meeting of tbe city council, held at 1:30
o'clock this afternoon.
A deputation from the Agricultural association was present, Fred
Clark and* E. F. Laws acting as
spokesmen, soliciting financial assistance towards tbe fall fair, the
council being aaked for I a do»
nation of about 1350. The council
promised consideration of tbe matter in tbe final dealing with the estimates.
Mayor Hull reported the result of
the interview with Lome Campbell,
ot tbe West Kootenay Power company, siatiog that the city bad been
successful n securing a rate of 2J-
eents a kilowatt hour in plsce of
the 3 cents asked by the company.
A preliminary discussion of the estimates occupied considerable time,
it being the feeling of the members
of the council tbifl wbile no in
crease would be charged th? consumer for electric lights, yet in view
of tbe increased cost to the city of
power purchased, it would be necessary to make an increase in tbe
water rates some 25 cents, or possi
bly 50 oents, per month per consumer.
Sizing up roughly tbe estimates
situation, it would appear that aome
110,000 extra will bave to be raised
tbia year over and above last year's
estimates. Tbe school board alone
require some 130,000.
Tbe final estimates was laid over
until the next regular meeting.
An enquiry was receive for
lioense rates from tbe Idternational
Amusement company, offering a
round-about and attractions generally. The clerk was instructed to
inform the company thai a license
fee of $50 a day would be required.
The various committees presented
tbeir reports, which were   adopted.

Supreme efforts of the new devil,
according to Straton's analysis, are:
To undermine tbe virtue of
women; to destroy masculine bonor;
to Wreck the marriage vows, to
checkmate tbe church; to overthrow
tbe old-fashioned bome.

Income tax forms and personal
property questionaires are now being sent out through the mail by G.
W. Cripps, provincial income tax
assessor at Vancouver. The forms
must be filled in and returned by
March 31. The income dealt witb
on them is for the whole year 1921
Persons wbo have not received
forms from tbe taxation departmeni
are required to get tbem before tbe
end of tbe mantb and fill tbem in
to avoid being penalized.
Three Months' Grace
Taxation officials will send out
atatemeuta of tbese taxes due within a couple of weeks after the ques-
tiooafres are sent in to tbe government. About tbree months will be
given after tbat for the payment of
tbe charges.
Separate income tax questionaires
are seoi out for all companies and
tbere are others for farmers.
The Bachelor Tax
Bachelors must pay income tax in
excess of $1200, Married men must
pay on all over $1500 and $200 is
allowed for eacb cbild.
Otber exemptions allowed both
married aod single men include dependents, such as father, mother or
other close relative aod also life insurance.
In connection witb the income returns a statement has to be furnished sbowiug all tbe personal property a person bas, witb the exception
of automobiles, household furniture
and wearing apparel. All'yachts,
sailing ships, launches, notes.bonds,
stocks, reference books, professional
books, medical, dental or scientific
instruments have to be listed in detail.
Only One Tax Paid
On the total value of the personal
property the taxation officials will
figure out what has to be paid as
tax. But a person will not be called
oo to pay tbe personal property tax
uuless it comes to more than the income Ui. In tbat case it is not
necsssary to pay the income tax. A
person has to pay only one of these
taxes, tbat being the one wbicb is
th egreater.
Tbe income tax jb figured out on
the following basis: 1 per cent on
income above tbe exemption limit
and up to $2500; 2 per cent on all
between $2600 and $3600; 3 per
cent between $3500 and $4500; 4
per cent between $4500 and $5500,
and so on in similar progression.
Vancouver Man's Calendar Reform Plan Accepted by Washington
To Vancouver goes tbe distinction
of having advanced tbe plan of calendar reform tbat tbe recent convention at .Washington, D.C., unanimously adopted. Tbe new method
of measuring,time was invented by
Moses B. Cotsworth, a statistician of
the Terminal city, It was obosen
after careful deliberation in preference to ten otber suggestions.
The gathering was known as the
United Statea national convention to
receive, discuss and consider plans
for improving tbe calendar.
Following are tbe proposals pre*
sen ted:
Plan No. 1—Tbe "International
Fixed Calendar Plan," advanced by
Moses B. Cotsworth, Vancouver, B.C.
Plan No. 2—The "Equal Mouths
or Liberty Calendar," advanced by
Joseph TJ. Barne8,Mioneapolis,Minu.
Plan No. 3— The "Perpetual Calendar," proposed by L. C. Pope, of
Fort Myer, Florida. *
Plan No. 4—Tbe "Swiss" plan,
advocated by Dr. A. F. Beal.Bureau
of Standards, Washington, D.C.
£Plan No. 3—The "Black" system;
plan 6, the "John Robertson" plan;
No. 7,the "AlexanderPhillip" plan;
No. 8 the "Ghilain" 'plain; No. 9,
the "Decimal" plan, proposed by
Edward Skille, Drummond, Wis.
No. 10, a plan presented by Dr. D.
C. Savage,,of Nashvilie, Tenn.; No.
11, the. "New Era Calendar," invented by Howard Q. Warren, of
Princeton University.
Folia wing tbe discussion Joseph
V. Barnes offered tbe following resolution:
Whereas, after due consideration
of the different plans proposed, this
convention is convinced of tbe superior merits of the first (International Fixed Calendar) plan, whicb
provides for tbe Betting aside of New
Year's day as an independent legal
holiday, and wbich also provides for
setting aside of the extta day in each
fourth year as "Leap Day" (making
itean independent legal holiday),and
divides the remainder 364 days oj
eacb year into 13 months of exa itly
four complete weeks eacb, by placing a new month between June and
July, and suggesting "Sol" as tbe
natural nahoe for sucb new month,
because it will include the time the
"Solstices" come in both the northern and the southern hemispheres;
Therefore be it resolved, tbat tbis
United States national convention on
calendar reform does hereby endorse
tbe "International Fixed Calendar"
plan as being, in its opinion, the
most simple, the moat conveniently
arranged, and tbe most desirable of
all the plans proposed to the convention, and we do hereby recom
mend its adoption by tbe law-making bodies of the nations of the
The  resolution   carried    unanimously.
It is significant that although tbe
Calendar convention was' assembled
by the Liberty Calendar Association
of America, Mr. Barnes.the founder
of tbat association, proposed tbe de
cidiog unanimous resolution recommending all nations to adopt Mr.
Cotswortb's "International Fixed
Calendar" plan, wbioh had previously been unanimously recount! nded
by both tbe Royal Society of Canada
and tbe government of Canada.
Norris Government
Defeated in Manitoba
Winnipeg, March 14.—By a vote
of 27 to 23, tbe Norris government
was defeated on a stisight vote of
censure resolution in the legiolature
this evening, and as soon ap the
lieutenant-governor, Sir James
Aikens, returns from Torooto on
Thursday, Premier T, C. Norris will
place his and the resignation of lbe
government in his bands.
A general election at an early date
is inevitable and tbe only point in
doubt is whether the lieutenant
governor will induce the government
to carry on until election arrangements are made or whether be will
call upon one of tbe group leaders
to forn> a government tbat will do
so. ' In view of the apparent impos -
sibility of any group leader forming
a government tbat woul d ommaod
a working majority in tbe bouse, it
is oonaidered probable that Sir
James Aikens will make an effort to
get the Norris administration to
stay in oflice till election arrangements are completed. Meanwhile
tbe house stands adjourned till to-
mjrrow afternoon.
The Modern Devil
Shakes Wicked Shoe
The following indictment of present-day society is made by a New
York preacher. Perhaps some of
tbe vices of modern times are not
any worse than ihose practiced by
the people a generation or two ago.
Modern methods must be used in
fighting tbe 1922 model shimmy
shaking devil. You can not combat
tbe up-to-date satan who shakes a
wicked shoe on the dance floor witb
tbe weapons our gjaodfathers used
against the old-fashioned brimstone-
breathing Mephisto.
This is tbe answer of Dr. Jobn
Roach Stration, famous reformer, to
Dr. Robert Stuart Macartbur, wbo
quit Calvary Baptist church, whicb
he founded, because he could not
stand Stration's sensational style.
Dr. Straton will preecb next Sun
day on tbe subject of Dr. Macartbui's
reeighatioo from tbe churoh.
What Happens to  I
Old Railroad
The railway -passenger who sees
piles of worn-out cross ties .piled
up and set on fire by repair nags
along  the right of way sotMtta-MS
wonde<\" why this is done and asks
why people are net allowed te use
them for fuel. The Pennsylvania
Railroad has issued an information
pamphlet dealing with this subject
whicb states:—
"In the first place, it is far from
true that all the old ties are burned.
A considerable number are constantly being sold to persons living
on er near the right ef way, who
buy them at nominal priees, usually
ten or fifteen cents apiece, aad use
them for firewood.    .-.•_.
"That it about as far as the mB-
read company has been able to go,
thus far, in finding an outlet for
worn-out ties. Such a method ef
disposal is practicable only in those
cases i '..ere the ties can b« delivered
at a public crossing, or other point
where they can be obtained safely
by the users, and where the eost of
so delivering them is not greater
than the nominal prices obtainable.
"The Company cannot sanction
the public going promiscuously over
tracks and through yards to gather
up old ties. To do so would bt practically letting down the bars against
trespassing on the tracks, an evil
which has been the causa of about
half of all the fatal accidents on
railroads in the United States.
"Efforts have been made to interest dealers in firewood in buying tha
old ties, but not thus far with much
success. The causes appear to be
that the old ties are often dirty;
that they contain more or less stone,
grit and slag wedged in tho cracks,
which might injure the saws used in
cutting them; that in many cases
they are partly decayed; that they
are dried out, and that their fibre
is more or less crushed, so that they
burn out too quickly. These an
among the reasons assigned by dealers who have not been willing to pay
the railroad company enough to
cover the eost of collecting the tiea
nnd delivering them to a point at
which they could bo removed.
"Efforts have also been made to
dlspore of old ties in a number ol
other ways, including sale for wood-
pulp purposes, for the extraction oi
chemicals, for burning and sale of
the ashes for fertiliser, and foi
manufacture into charcoal, but without success in Interesting parties engaged in these occupations.
. 'The Company will be glad to continue and wherever feasible to extend, the present practice of selling
eld ties to individual consumers foi
n, minal prices' at points whore they
ci.n be delivered without danger to
Ihe purchasers and without costing,
for collection and transportation,
more than they are worth as fuel.
The management will welcome any
other suggestions by which more of
the old ties can be usefully disposod
of or made available for commercial
or industrial purposes."
The   Canadian    Pacific   Railway
goes further than the Pennsylvania
Railroad and gives away ties to any
who will take them, such giving being surrounded with the necessary,
safeguards as  to trespassing.    Tht
experience of the Canadian  Pacifu
is  that  ties are taken  only whet
there is no standing timber in thi
vicinity, and that in many cases tl
farmers taking the ties do not ui
them for firewood but for generall
purposes around the farm, indicating that tha valne of old ties
firewood   in   this   country   is
tremely small.
Returns From Sixty Out

Fernie, B. C, March 14.—Returns from sixty polls out of a total

Washington,March 13— The week
centering on March 17 will average above normal tempertures on
meridian 90 from tbe Gulf of Mexico
to tbe far north. The hiSh temperature of that disturbance will be in
northwestern Canada about March
15, on and all along meridian CO
March 17, and in eastern sections
March 19. A cool wave will be
in northwestern Canada near March
19, on meridian 90 March 21, in
eastern sections 23.
Unusually severe storms will prevail from March 11 to 19, and whatever relief tbere is in store for America and* Canada may be expected
during tbat ten days. March will be
full of storms and improvements in
crop weather will come witb tbe

Muscle Shoals. It would be absurdly wasteful to allow the $85,000,000 already spent
.there to be charged off to profit and loss—
or rather to loss alone. It may be that no one
will make a better offer than Mr. Ford; but
Secretary Weeks thinks that the Detroit man
is trying to drive a rather hard bargain with
his fellow citizens. It is a part of Mr. Ford's
proposal that the government, sell to him for
$5,000,000 nitrate and steam plants that Sec
retary Weeks says have a scrap value of more
than $8,000,000.
England is glutted with cotton cloth that it
can not sell; Austria is unclothed becausee it
can not |juy. While Russia is starving, American granaries bulge with surplus corn, The
world is full of goods that it can not exchange, and there are so many ships on the
sea that hardly any of them can get a profitable cargo.
The term Grand Canon applies to that part
of the Colorado river which lies in northern
Arizona. Itis a gorge 217 miles lo g, 4000 to
6000 feet deep and from 1 to 15 miles wide at
the top. Far away to the north, however, on
Green river, a tributary of the Colorado, there
begins a greatly depressed river bed that continues through Utah and Arizona for 1000
miles, ''morr mysterious in their depths than
the Himalayas in their height."
A Russian statistician has discovered  that
.he Russian birth rate, which was almost 40
a thousand before   tlie war, was  only 13 a
thonsand in 1919, -and that the death rate,
which was 25.4 in 1913,was75 sixyears later.
We give the figures for what they may be
worth, for we imagine that the vital statistics
of Russia would be hard to collect and mt to
be trusted; bnt there can be no doubt of the
tremendous waste of   population.   In only
twelve   of  the  "governments" of European
Russia the loss of population is estimated at
three million. *

On a high point' of Mount Adams in the
state of Washington are one hundred and
thirty six apparently human footprints, made
in mud that has long since turned to stone.
The tradition of the Yakima Indians is that
the spot is the place where "the great canoe"
landed after theeFlood, and that the footprints were made by the people who stepped
from the "canoe" to the ground, softened by
the long inundation.
Many labor unions have a financial strength
that the public does not realize. For example,
150 members of the Elevator Constructors'
union in San Francisco went on strike against
a cut in wages. The International Brotherhood of the craft voted at once to pay every
striker his wages under the old scale—$9 a
day. Some of the money came from'the treas
ury of the organization, but most of it came
from a levy of 10 per cent on the wages of
members of the union who fwere working in
other cities.'

Nothing Else is Aspirin -■— say "Bayer"
Whether we are growing better or merely
going faster is a conundrum for philosphers.
Consider the latest scheme for a cafeteria:
the diner takes his seat at a table on a slowly
moving section of floor, picks up the dishes he
desires as he passes the counter, pays the
cashier as he sweeps by her cage and then
continues to eat with what show of leisure he
can muster as he continues to revolve iu his
orbit. Sot a square meal but around one
seems tp be the aim.
A flock of swans that belong to the bishop's
palace at Wells, Somerset, England, use the
ancient moat as their swimming pool. From
one ofthe palaqo windows hangs a ropo that
reaches to the water and that is attached to a
bell in the building, and whenever the swans
are hungry thoy tug at the rope until ihey succeed in ringing the bell and some ono throws
down food to them. A bishop's daughter
taught them the trick.
Non official radio messages—music, sermons, vaudeville, lectures, personal advertising—must now be sent at a wave length of
300 meteres in the United States. The department of commereo reserves the wave

semi-official announcements.
From Detroit, by way of Roger Babson, the
statistician, comes the news that Henry Ford
is at work on a composition  of cotton and
forniajdehoyde and glue, whicli may be called
"cottonoid" for   convenience, and  that if his
experiments succeed he can  block  out auto
mobile bodies as a cook cuts  out doughnuts.
Presumably the engine will  still have to be
made of sterner stuff; Incidentally^ for the instruction of tliose who believe that the day of
"opportunity" has gone by, Mr.  Ford  recalls
that  seventeen  years ago he could  not get
trusted for a chicken for his Thanksgiving
dinner.    Last year he paid  the government
$7(5,000,000 in taxes.
It is interesting to know that the historic
flag of Ireland is not green but blue. Green
as the national color dates only from the
revolution of 1798. It was then accepted by
the people, but there -was never any official
action to change the color of the Irish flag,
which in early days was blue. Nor has the
harp always been an emblem of the country.
Originally the Irish flag boro a golden siui-
burst. Later it displayed three golden crowns,
and it was not until she seventeenth century
that the harp displaced them. On the royal
standard of the United Kingdom, where the
Irish flag i.s quartered with those of England,
Scotland and Wales, che harp appears on a
blue field. But the new free state government
can change the national color to green if it
pleases, and it is very likely to do it.

Solutions of telephone problems are
nearly always made in advance of necessity. Improvements are experimented
with constantly, so that the standard of
service may be at all times the very best.
It is not that a standard may be maintained, but that the standard may continue to be as close to perfection as it is
humanly possible to have it. F.iobiems
of speed, accuracy and transmission are
always before the telephone engineers,
and the great and precise mechanisms
through which the volume and complexity-of telephone traffic is handled are
mechanically perfect in the light of present invention,

A group of Russia's starving children  such aa are being saved from death by
Canadian contributions.
ItnMla'i government may Save
■inred: but ner little children have
not. Ruitii's people, a vast horde,
but dimly conscious, If at all, of
social responsibility other than thnt
whicb each man felt for his own Im
mediate family, may have brought
added trouble and disorganization tn
a war-thattered world. Her little
children had nothing to do witb It,
•nd yet lt Is tho little children of
Russia that are faced with thc
hideout, ovor-powering brunt of it
all. They are not facing it; it is
too great for them. In millions thev
are tottering to the ground to end
their short lives of unrelieved horror in one last agonlted spasm.
In the famine-stricken province?
ef Russia there are, or were, 38,000,
000 people. Millions already have
died of starvation; Nanscn says ten
millions more must die. That in
eludes men and women, patient.
humble peasants who have had no
ifcand, no thought, in thc making of
-the unspeakable conditions that
have swept over their once happy
.land. These know they must die,
are almost content to die, finding
in death the end of suffering and
the cessation of horror.
But their children—the parents
a*re human beings; if they were mere
animals the long protracted death
•gomes of their little ones would
•nil be unbearable. To most of IV.am
there com** no help. Tbe task of feeding their children first and then them-
selves  Is  too   great;   they  die   and
Phis little chap, left alone in
the world, crawled into a
deserted cottage to die.
their children are alone to wander
about the country in quest of something, anything to devour. Little
claws that should be the pretty
hands of children dig in the ground
for roots, except when the ground
Is frozen, and misshapen little r ec-
tres crawl from refuse heap to ruined cottage to see if one small, eatable  fragment  may  not   be   over-
Again, if thty were animals it
would be different, and sailer. Instinctively they would know how ts
wrest a living from Mother Nature.
But little children must be fed. They
must have food found for them, and
in Russia there ls none, so they must
die. Death ls not the worst of li
If a peaceful death were all thev
suffered, it would not be to bad. It
is the hideout horror of the drawn-
out struggle, and it is helpless little
children that are suffering. They
aro suffering to-day and mutt continue to suffer to death, unless—
Unless the civilized well-fed people of the world hear their awful
cry for help, and give that help
quickly, it will be too late for countless thousands of children. The call
hat eome to Canada with evidence
far too horrible to print. The photographs reproduced herewith merely
suggest others, more dreadful, that
cannot be published.
Will Canada, land of happy,
healthy children, heed the call? Th*
appeal is being made in the belief'
that she will. The "Save The Children Fund" has opened an office i»
the Elgin Building, Ottawa, and th*
Canadian people are urged to send
their subscriptions now to Sir
George Burn, treasurer of the fun*
at that address. One dollar will feed
a child for one month; $500 will
feed one hundred children until next
