Taxation changes more ex
tensive tban in the budget
speech were proposed to the
legislature last week, when
Hon. J. D. MacLean,minister
of tinatiee, introduced his bill
to amend the taxation act.
1. Tne rale of taxation on
crown granted timber is re
duced Jfrom 3 percent to \\
per cent, as a result of the
assessment now ooiupleted
which gives such an increased
valuation that even with the
reduced rate the crown ..rev.-,
euue will be iucreased by
$125,000 a year.
2. The proposed 10 percent
deduction on personal property tax will apply to all who
pay this tax, except where the
levy is less than $25.
g. A new tax of 50 cants a
ton is imposed upon every ton
of fish used by the growing
fish meal and lish oil indns-
tries of the province.
4. The war time change in
the gold tax is replaced, and
hereafter gold mines will pay
the same 2 per cent mineral
tax as other mint's pay. To
encourage lhe -small miner,
the first $5000 produced will
5. I-ndustriespaying interest
o'n debentures .villb e allowed
exemption in their income tax
statements to the  amount of
"Tell me what you Know In true*-
I canMuoss as well as you."C
interest nn debentures held
within the province, and thus
taxable on the revenue the
debenture holders receive
from such investments. Where
the interest is paid outside the
province and the recipients
can not be reached, the maximum rate is reduced from 10
per cent to 4 por cent.
6. The announced income
tax reductions«re specifically
set forth in the bill.
7. Exemption of life insurance premiums from income
tax is fixed at $500 instead of
at one-sixth of the taxpayer's
gross income. The change in
the gold mine tax is a reversion to pre-war conditions.
During the war the cost of
mining increased greatly, but
gold, having a fixed value, did
not enhance, as a * result ot
which gold mines found it
difficult to operate at a profit.
In order 'to encourage gold
mining, those engaged in that
industry were taxed only on
their net income, and were
relieved from imposition of
the 2 per cent mineral tax.
This tax is now being restoied
except in the case of small
mines, which are protected by
a provision that the first $5000
production is exempt. The
tax applies to both placer and
quartz mining.

While on one of his regular trips
to tbis district a fojtnight or so ago,
says tbe Princi ton Star, E. E. Gibson, of lhe West Kootenoy Power &
Light company, van approached to
buy a two dollar ticket for the prize
dance that was held at Allenby las
Friday evening. The object of tbe
dance was to realize money on the
big StudebakerjSpe-nal tbat belonged
to Daniel Wilson, an employee of
tbe Allsnby Copper company, who
wit accidentally killed.
Mr Gibson, with uo other thought
tban to assist a worthy object,
bought a ticket, and promptly pro
ceedtd to forget all about it. Pictaie
bis surprise when he was called from
bis peaceful couob at midnight last
Friday by W. S. Miller, agent of tbe
West Kootenay Power & Light com-
pany at Allenby, wbo could Dot
wait until morning to break tbe
good news, aod informed him tbat
be was the owner of a bin Studebsker
—Mr. Gibson drives a McLaughlin
roadster. He states that it required
some explanation before be was
made to undent od bow be came
to be the owner of tbe Studebaker,
Every one of tbe 600 tickets was
nold and the sum of 1815 was real
ized after paying duty on the car
aod expenses in connection witb
the dance.
Apart from several outsiders who
happened to be in Princeton tbe evening of tbe dance and attended it,
Mr. Gibson is believed to have heen
tbe only one outside of tbe valley
who purchased a ticket.
Jack Frost Brings hAng Sport to Quebec
Chateau Frontenac Dos} Team with trainer.     Chateau Frontenac ft Tobottan Slide.     (Upper rl»ht) Trotting Bsrne  Outline.
What is expected to be the most brilliant winter
season in the history of Quebec was launched in that
city recently with the formation of the Winter Sports
Club which is under the patronage of His Honor the
Lieutenant Governor of the Province of Quebec, Hon.
Narcisse Perodeau, Hon. L. A. Taschereau, Premier
of the Province; and Mayor Jos. Samson of Quebec.
The Club haa undertaken to arrange the International
College Ski Competition, the International Snow Shoe
Convention, the World Championship Snowshoe races,
and the famous Quebec Dog Derby. The Ski competition
will include a five-mile cross-country race, a ski-jumping
contest, and testa in efficiency including Christiana turns.
Sight-seeing tours and sporting events will follow
in harmonious succession right through the season in
addition to the major events. In the Quebec Open
Amateur Ski meeting in February, clubs from Montreal,
Ottawa, Berlin, N.H.,'and others will compete. Ivind
Nelson, amateur ski champion, and Oliver Kaldahl will be
the ski instructors. A lady instructress is to be appointed
and visitors to Quebec will be carefully instructed and
Ipi'rn out in parties.
\s usual, skating will form one of the attractions.
Lar:; Orafstiw" and Mrs. Allan Kerr will act as instructors. Towards tha end of January, arrangements have
been made ior a .'kating masquerade on uie brilliantly
illuminated open rink outside the Chateau Frontenac,
while another masquerade may be held in February.
The rink will also be available for smaller masquerade
skating affairs.
Moonlight ski-runs and sleighing parties, the brightly
lighted toboggan slide, music from dancing rooms in the
Chateau, all will add to the gaiety and charm of the
carnival. The Dufferin Terrace Toboggan Slide runs
well over a quarter of a mile. A long climb back, but
what a soothing sensation to come flying down a long,
Bmooth stretch of ice as if the toboggan would never
stop. Five Swiss bob-sleighs have been acquired and
competitions will be arranged some time in February.
Besides the regular hockey league games, negotiations
are in progress to arrange an exhibition game between
Sons of Ireland and a Princeton University team, while
there is also every possibility of having a few ladies
hockey teams. Trips will be made periodically to the
Shrine at St. Anne de Beauprfi, Chateau Richer, Montmorency Falls and other beautiful sites about the dty.
A number of excursions will be made to the Island of
Orleans via the ice bridge with ski-ing on the return
journey. This novelty is expected to make a decided hit
with tourists.
Fast horses have been trained for ski-joring and will
I also compete on a track of beaten snow in trotting races.

Premier Oliver has led his forces to victory

The accusation is made that men no longer
are as courteous to women ns they once were.
Good manners are out of date, it is said. The
change is imputed to the change in woman's
status. Since she has left tho shelter of the
home and engaged in business and public ac
tivities' it' is not considered needful to show
deference. Men, unashamed, will remain s- at
ed in street cars while women stand; teey
will smoke i.i mixed society without as much
as asking permission; they will spoak
of girls as "fellows." "She isa good fellow,'
one will hear them say Does it mean that the
enfranchisement of women, the striking off of
the shackles, has killed chivalry? that men can
not be expected to show courtesy to women
unless women occupy a subordinate position
in society? It may be that women themselves
are partly to blame. Some have lost the respect that formerly was theirs by adopting
masculine ways. A few foolish ones dislike to
be thought of as "the weaker sex" or "the
gentler sex," and on that account discourage
the showing of deference to them, thinking
that it implies that they are not the equals of
men. Of course they are ot the equals of
men in muscular   strength, and  they should

The Official Ride of the Trail Riders Of the Canadian Rockies, commenced
this vear on the morning of August 8th and ended at Wapta Camp on the
night ofthe tenth. Over a hundred members participated. They rode acrcss
country between Marble Canyon, on the Banff-Windermere Highway, to the
Bungalow Camp at Lake Wapta.
The Riders, among them a number of prominent society people, scientists
and artists, all travelling on horse-back, blazed a new passage across the
Wolveiine Plateau. Six countries vere represented: Canada, the United
States, Australia, France, the West Indies' and England. The artists, of
whom there were six, made sketches of the "irgin scenery along the route
of the newly discovered trail.
Seven Indians were in the pnrty, six being Kootenays under Chief Louis
Arbel, while the seventh was Chief Buffalo Child Long Lance who gave a
lecture on the Indian Races of Canada to tho Canadian Club of Montreal
during the winter, and is rapidly becoming famous as an authority upon
Indian affairs.
The artistd included Leonard Richmond, R.B.A., and A. L. Leighton of
England; Carl Rungius, Belmore Browne and Kichard M. Kimbel, of New
York, and R. Pa!p>ii*l«* of Chicago. Paris was represented by tho Due de
Nemours, who recently! purebscto c ranch near Calgary.
This was the ■ .•■■•on-i ; "in; i ■■'.-''■■ and Po\>-pow of the organization. On
the morning of A,ugut.t Iha tii/uh, r..oter cars conveyed the Riders from
Lake Louise and Banff to the point of departure on the iJanfi'-Wimitrmcro
_ jorses were in readiness and the pai
mediately mounted and the Ride commenced.   The trail led up Tumbling
Creek, past Tumbling Glacier and on the Wolverine Plateau where lunch was
'served . The ride then proceeded along the Plateau with the Wolverino
Palisades, Mount Helmet and the Washmawapta Icefield and Waterfalls or
the left, giving the riders a view of the Ten Peaks on the right.
That night camp was pitched on the Goodsir Plateau and before retiring
the campers gathered around the fire for the usual sing-song, in the shadow
of the cliff which rises sheer six thousand, five hundred feet above its valley.
On the second day the ride led down to Goodsir Creek and up McArthur
Creek, past Lake McArthur.   That night was spent of the shores of Lake
O'Hara, the camp there being placed at the disposal of the Trail Riders by
the Alpine Club of Canada. The day ended again with a sing-song.
.   On the third day, August 10th, the final ride was made from Lake O'Han*.
to Wapta Lake, where the expedition was concluded with a Pow-wow. singsong and pale-face dance at Tipi Camp. It is expected that another ride of a
3imilar nature will take place next year as the undertaking impressed thns<
who took part as one of the most enjoyable outtingt* they have experiencs^i'
Not only does the Ride provide an uncommonly pleasant holiday for sport
men from Canada and the tlnited Statfs, but it also serves the c-celi;
purpose of making the scenery and the fishing aud hunting facilities uf i
Rockies known abroad.
Train 300 Miles Long to Carry Crop

Stationed at the Transcona yards, Winnipeg, and at strategie points throng hout
the Prairie Provinces, the Canadian Pacific Railway haa 85,000 boxcars standing
ready for the transportation of the 1926 crop. Of these over 8,000 ears are at the
Winnipeg yards. To move this immense aggregation 650 freight and 180 switch enginea
will be required.
Were they all to be Joined ap into one train and if we further suppose that this
train were moving at twenty miles an hour over a level crossing, a motorist who urlrsd
there just as the first engine reached the crossing, would have to wait fifteen houranntfl
the caboose pawed across. This would indeed be a case where "taking a chance" wwiM
almost be justified.
Each boxcar is from 86 to 40 feet ln length or an average of 88 feet Allowing*
space between each of four feet and taking into consideration also the 660 engines each
ninety feet long, the total length of this great train would be about 290 milea whieh
at twenty miles an hour woulof take cloee on fifteen hours to pasa a given point.
The carrying capacity of a boxcar ia about 1,600 bushels of wheat and thia woold
take care on the first movement of the above imaginary train of 62,600,000 bushels.
Since the train in its individual movements will travel several times, an idea of what
proportion of the 1926 crop, estimated at 876,000,000 buahela the Canadian Padfle
Railway will carry, is Indicated.
** Among the engines used in the hauling of the wheat trains are mum of tha
most powerful in the world. Reckoning in the weight of coal carried, the
heaviest of these engines weighs about 880,000 lbs. while the boxcar, loaded
with grain, weighs 140,000 lbs. The average grain train is composed of forty
boxcars, so the weight is about 6,000,000 lbs. or 8,000 tons. The total number
♦t audi train, would be 876 which would gto*ts***Ulvei*fe.-i<.UU^«MM.
Cutting of the imp la already under way and movement of the grain will
commence about the sma of August and will continue until the close of
navigation on the Oreat Lakes which is generally between the 10 and 15
Decembt-ir. During the banner crop year of 1923, the Canadian Pacific Railway operated ln connection with the niovemc ut of the grain approximately
6144 trains and 26,720 men were required to handle the trallic. In that year

Milk Costs Uncle Sam
$77,399,685.00 Annually
The amount of milk spilt, soured,
rejected and otherwise wasted annually, ls 8,889,986,000 pounds. This at
$2.26 per hundred would approximate annually the stupendous
amount ot $77,399,685.
However, a cheerful note rings
through this tale of economic loss to
a nation. The same report shows
a 1924 lncreaao of 108 pounds of
milk per cow over 1923 production.
Deducting this from the figure previously given, leaves a loss through
waste of only $13,607,825, a mere
bagatelle, compared with our national debt of more than twenty billions of dollars.
The tncreused yield per cow ls due
to heightened efliciency on the farm;
and future years promise even
greater increases.
Dairymen havo discovered the fu-
tlllty*of feeding non-paying members
of their milk herds. They have
learned that losses lurk ln insanitary
milk production. They have discovered the advantages that Ue in
swatting the bacteria that hide ln
unclean stables, undipped, un-
bruslicd flanks and udders of milk
cows and unsterllized utensils. Aa
time goes on, the unavoidable waste
of milk will be more than offset by
intelligent feeding, complete sanitation and more efficient herd management
