The announcement in the Speech from ihe Throne at Ottawa of tho Government's intention to reduce taxation with a view to lessening ihe cost of instruments of production in basic industries was immediately and generally
accepted as indicating a lowering of tlie tariff on agricultural implements, and
no time was lost by tho manufacturers of such implements in Ontario in organising deputations to Otiawa to protest against any such action.
"While noi disclosing the Government's intention in advance of the Bud-
got statement, Premier King intimated to one such deputation that tliere were
oilier ways of lowering costs ihan through tariff reduction, and in this connection referred to the Sales Tax.
Tlio whole subject of tariffs and taxation i.s an economic one, a matter of
national business, a problem in trade and commerce, and as such conies -within iho class of subjects frequently discussed in this column. Unfortunately, these things have also become inseparably bound up in party politics, and
partisan issues aro avoided as much iis possible in dealing with national questions in ariicles in this column. There is, therefore; uo intention of discussing the merits or demerits of Protection, 'Tariff for Revenue, or Free
Trade.    ������>
Thero is one aspect of Canada's nalional position, however, deserving of
the most thoughtful attention of all Canadians irrespective of their views in
regard to fiscal matters.
Eastern manufacturers constantly advance as an argument in support
of their demand for tariff protection tliat lhe balance of trade between Canada
and the United States is decidedly against tlie Dominion and in favor of the
Republic; that wo annually buy millions of dollars worth of goods and supplies from the United States in excess of tho amount wo export to tho south,

Chicago and the principal cities of tho
United States, Canadian playgoers are
to" see "Lightnin'" With Thomas
Jefferson, Bessie Bacon, Charles E.
Evans and a special cast that. John
FGoldeu will send to London next summer, tlio' famous comedy success will
be presented at ihe Walker Theatre,
Winnipeg, beginning Monday, April
11. Matinees are announced for
Wednesday, Good Friday and Saturday and on account of the expected
rush for seats, mail orders will be accepted at. once.
Mr. Jefferson is a sou of the late
Joseph Jefferson, who immorlalcd
"Kip Van Winkle"; Miss Bacon is a
daughter of the late-Frank Bacon who
wrote and starred in "Lightnin"'; and
Mr. Evans ls a veteran character artist of pleasant memory in "A Parlor
Match" and other farces produced by
the late Charles K. Hoyt. The cast
is of real all-star distinction and its
visits to the principal cities of tho
Canadian northwest are. likely to be a
series of ovations. The. play is rated
as tlie finest blending of romance, fun
and gentle pathos-that the stage has
known since "The Music Master.". Its
thrilling courtroom scene is said to
rank with the classics in realism and
skillful construction. .
The prices for "Lightnin*" in Winnipeg will be as follows: Nights,

tlie houso occupied by the Crown
Prince on the island of Wieringen.
The expected souvenir hunters did
not arrive, says the correspondent and
with thc exception of the newspaper
men and photographers, only island
ers were present." The goods realized about ��100.     '
Tlie furniture was shabby and hardly worth buying whilo the personal
articles fetched trivial prices. Three
cigarette cases, one bearing the
Prince's jnonogram, totalled about .70
shillings, and the other things went
at proportionate prices.    - '��� . -

Sacrifice of Dairy Calves
Dairymen Are Advised to Rear Heifer
Calves From Good Stock
A saving of heifer calves from
heavy milking cows kept, for producing milk for city trade, was urged at
the Dairy Cattle conference recently
held in Ottawa. An enormous sacrifice of good dairy stock is said to result from the present practice whereby dairymen in many cases depend
upon buying to replenish their herds
instead of rearing the heifers from
good cows. Cases were instanced of
many carloads a year of the very best
cows being bought up and shipped out
of certain counties., in Ontario to re-
-. ��� .   ��� - t.
plenish   commercial   milking... herds.
Under this system the cows no longer
produce the progeny they are capable
of producing, which is so much needed. It was urged that means be
found for inducing milk producing
farmers to used improved bulls only,
and to encourage the ^organization of
heifer clubs, among the boys and girls
for taking over,, and rearing heifer

The British
Empire Exhibition
London's Historic Entertainments
Will  Be Patronized  By Visitors
ln this, the last article of the series, we propose taking up a few of iho
loose threads of our theme. At the
time of vvritMg there are as many as
fifty London theatres ih full swing,
most of them within a radius of half
a mile, taking Leicester Square as the
centre. Chief of these are Drury
Lane, tlio Gaiety, the Hay market, the
Savoy, the Lyceum, His Majesty's, the
Adelphi, thc Criterion, the Vaudeville, the Garrick, "Wyndham's, Daly's,
the Shaftesbury, and the St. James'.
The principal variety theatres are the
Alliambra, the Coliseum, the Hippodrome, the Palace, tho Winter Garden
and the Palladium; and, of course,
there are cinema theatres galore.
Visitors lrom abroad will naturally
want to see the Houses of Parliament
(which are regarded by some facetious individuals as places of entertainment), the magnificent Law Courts,
the Tower of London with its historic
associations, its Armoury and the
Crown Jewels,. Westminster Abbey,
and the wonderful collection of animals in the Zoological Gardens in Regent's Park. These gardens are
about a mile distant from Baker
Street Station, the West End terminus
ofthe Metropolitan Hallway extension.
This is tlie route which will be most
largely used by visitors to Wembley
for the British Empire Exhibition, the
journey taking little more than a
quarter of an hour.
Just outside Baker Street Station
stands the great Bed Palace, the
fame of which has reached to all parts
of the world. This is Madame Tus.-
saud's exhibition, beloved by young
and old for its many unique attractions. As far back as 1S60, Charles
Allston Collins, brother of Wilkie Collins and son-in-law of Charles -Dickens, wrote that "Madame Tussaud's is
with the whole population of this
country, metropolitan or provincial,
something more tlian an exhibition! it
is an institution," Here our brethren
from overseas will see portrait models
of mosjt of the outstanding celebrities
of the past century, many of, them
modelled from life by" members of the
gifted Tnssautl family.
There' Is no space for us even to
mention-' the numerous - international
exhibitions that have been held - in
various parts of the-world, but-a few
words must be said about London's
second ^great International Exhibition,
which 'was ..hold in'/18C2. -It/was
housed in an immense specially ..constructed . building adjoining - the gar-,
den's of the Horticultural Society-at
South- Kensington.,' The erection
consisted "of two; vast domes' of glass

larger than,.the/dome of "St. Peter's--
connected by. a nave 800 feetf long.-The
galleries5 occupied twpnty-three-aiuf "a
halt'-a.cres. -- The success of the'enter.-,
prise" was', marred, by-the death of the
Prince Consort on December: 1-1, 1861/
-and" the'outbreak, of the Civil War in

A Difficult Task to Get the World Back

Lord Cecil is authority for the
statement that there are now 3,750,-
000 men under arms In Europe, and
that this number is only/one .hundred thousand less than there were
before the great war- began. And
over against the fact of this slight
reduction is to be placed .the other
fact:that there/are behind these men
actually in uniform many millions of
trained and demobilized soldiers. The
task of getting this old world to carry
on on a peace basis seems a tremend-''
ously.-difficult one, and yet we must
keep working away at it. The folly
of the present situation is. surely evident to every one.���Christian Guardian.       '-..""
