six months imprisonment, a maxi-
mum/bf ,'.8300 }:fine, or both. , A

In local mining circles the recent
severe decline in silver prices has
been a subject of much speculation and comment. Many theories
have been advanced as to the
cause of the decline. The following opinion, derived from a Toronto source, while it may or may
not have a substantial basis in fact,
ie, neverthless, interesting. ��� The
Toronto authority says: <cRy apparently-exerting every; influence,
the British government, through
the banking institutions'" of "|he"
.Chinese Empire, and by complexly ~
stopping silver shipments to India,
has been-able to bring about a de-*
cline in the price of silver just at a
time when leading metal authorities appeared' to be firmly convinced that such was quite impossible at the present time." Having" adopted extremely drastic
measures, that mo3t influentai of
all bodies, the British government,
has literally .stemmed the current
of the law of supply and demand
by effectually curtailing demand,
just how long this influence may
be continued is jnore or less problematical, bufe having scored a
knockout, sg to speak,--in fehe-first ���
round, it seems on^ reasonable to
suppose that under the'conditions
which exist the price ' may be held
down to Ifes present'level." "Ife is
afe this point, however, that.fehe
situation takes on a new phase-
one caused by - the very methods
adopted by the British government,
and one that may aetaally, in due
course, defeat the aims of that
body. The new situation created
is this: The British government
has been able to reduce quotations
for silver by lessening the demand,
but fehe British government has
not shown the miners how they
can produce their bullion more
cheaply. For that reason a reduced price for silver must lead to
a reduced ontput to the end that
the demand, even minus that- of
China, in part, and India as a
whole, may in a comparatively
shorfe time again far exceed the
supply. Insofar as Northern Ontario is concerned, the mines are
on a firm basis, for the reason thafe
their ore is high grade, and can be
mined profitably long after many
other mines in other parts of the
world wonld find it otherwise.
Should curtailment in other countries be made imperiative, it will
bat serve to increase the demand -
tor silver, and thus work out feo
tho benefit of the mines of this
country. For instance, the* average cost of producing silver from
the Cobalt mines, as a whole is less
than 60 cents an ounce, thereby -���
having a margin of profit of over
45 cents an onnee. even afe current
quotations, a net profit actually
equal to the total gross value c-f
the metal five years ago." '>

pany, who is also director of the bank
of England. Sir Robert is a man,
therefore, who is fully conversant
with present commercial and financial
conditions throughout the world, and
anything he may have to. .say on such
subjects are worthy of thc thoughtful
attention and serious consideration of
thc people of Western Canada. In
a recent address at Calgary he said:
"Unless wc stop sailing along thc
smooth waters of this present false
prosperity, brought about through inflation, which gives the world an additional purhasing power which is unreal, I say, if wc don't stop now, we
shall bc faced with thc most appalling
financial crisis in the next five or six
years that the world has ever seen.
As a trader I speak to you, because I
know, and I tell you that only one
way remains for us to reach the goal
we seek���prosperity and happiness ���
and that is for each and evcry one
to devote their energies to a campaign
of real productivity and for the elimination of consumption 'of all luxuries."
In uttering these words of warning,
Sir Robert Kindersley is only repeating what the'most, astute and best
informed men -the. world over have
been saying.and urging"for some timc
past. Up, to the present ;timc, however, their words seem .to.have, fallen
on deaf ears: The situation in Canada
is very' similar to that in.the United
Statcs, although possibly, not quite so
aggravated because, in this country we
, suffered 'losses' during the war out of
all "proportion to those- sustained by
the United States, -while we did not
profit to the same extent as .our southern neighbors"did.- " ���'��� -   -
Nevertheless,    conditions -. on    the-
North  American   continent, are very
. . similar, .and here in Canada wc may
well heed the summing, up of the difficulty in the United States as stated
by: one. observant    American   -writer
- when he "says: "There is-too jmich of
spending, and too" little; earning; -too
much    extravagance" arid-too -little
economy;    top ; much   "restless ..- and

Export of Cheese Will Again Flow
Through the Usual
' The Canadian minister of agriculture recently received the following
cable from the British Ministry of
Food: "It has now been definitely decided that thc Ministry will not purchase the new; season's Canadian
cheese. The maximum importer's selling price (32 cents), now in force,
will be removed at an early date, but
the maximum retail price of one shilling and" eight pence (40 cents) per
pound0for whole milk cheese will remain in force for the time being."
The effect of this decision will be
that the export of cheese will again
flow through the usual channels.   -

needlessly painful though thcy may

Map Shows Clearly Where All The
Natural Resources Are
The natural resources 'intelligence
branch of the Department of the Interior, of which F. C. G. Lynch is
superintendent, is responsible for the
publishing of a map which will prove
of the utmost value to all those seeking information regarding the natural
resources of Canada, together with
the transportation at trade routes. A
glance at thc map shows clearly
where all the vast natural resources
are situated, whether in thc shape of
timber, coal, the precious metals, and
pulp wood, furs, natural gas and
oil, and clay belts, the enormous water powers throughout the country al-

From Aircraft
Thc British Air Ministry   has   announced   that,  in an  amendment  of
the air navigation regulations, licenses
may now bc obtained to drop packages by parachute. The amendment
reads: "An amendment to thc air navigation regulations dated 30th March
provides that the Secretary of State
may, on application bcing made to
him, grant licenses to firms engaged
in "the aircraft industry, authorizing
the dropping of packages by parachutes from aircraft on to dropping

Britain Has Reason For Maintaining
The Most Powerful
.    , ���;    '   -Navy   .  \ x.' ��� y;...:��� X'X     ���
The' addition of the five, floating
German dreadnoughts to the-British
fleet may save Britain .from losing her
naval supremacy to the United States
during the next two or three years.
At present Britain has 33 dreadnoughts. The United States lias 27
built or building and is planning for-
10 more. Britain has 13 battle-cruisers. The United States is building.six
and is planning for six more.
The justification for. the intensive
naval program of the United States
is hard to find particularly when President Wilson urges all the nations of
the world to_join the League of Nations and agree fo an all-round reduction of armaments. A clash between the two great divisions of the
Anglo-Saxon race is unthinkable. Yet
even the best friends of the United
States who are citizens of the British
empire feel that Britain occupies such
a unique, position in the world that
she has reason for taking such steps
as may be necessary to maintain the
most powerful navy in the world.
The   cost   of   naval     construction
keeps on multiplying.      The British.
battleship Hood, with the extraordinary tonnage of 42,000, a length of 860
feet, 31 knots speed, and eight 15rinch
guns, is costing thirty million dollars,;,
and it is said that some of the American dreadnoughts now building    are
expected to cost more than forty mil-, ���
lion dollars.   Recently Japan launched".- ���
a dreadnought that will be much more
costly than any vessel she previously
has built.

Transportation Charges /
On Livestock
On behalf of the Saskatchewan government, the Hon. Chas. A. Dunning
has agreed to pay the transportation
charges on Saskatchewan ^livestock

It has been decided that a joint exhibit of_not over two car loads of Saskatchewan livestock be sent this fall
to the two big shows. The minister
has agreed to pay transportation charges providing certain conditions were
fulfilled, one of which was that no
stock should be sent to this exhibit
that had not competed in at least one
of the four largc Saskatchewan shows,
namely, Regina, or Saskatoon summer
exhibitions or winter fairs.
The result of the conference bc-
tveen "tlie members of the livestock
board and the minister was completely satisfactory to the board, and steps
will be taken immediately to ensure
thc earnest and hearty support of the
board, in securing the best possible
exhibits from the province, well fitted.

following resolution vvhich was Unanimously passed at the annual meeting
of the livestock board:

Medium   by   Which   Public   Opinion
May Make Itself Felt
��� With nearly three-quarters of a
million Canadians attending moving
pictures daily, there ought to be on
the part of all organizations interested in good citizenship and thc
training' of the young an insistence
upon two things; clean plays and the
presentation of topical events relating
to thcir own .country. It would be
childish, of course, to bar news pictures of other lands, but these should
not, as is often thc case, entirely supersede Canadian events. Thc men
who own or operate thc moving-picture shows arc not in business for
thcir health alone. A great many of
them are anxious to know what their
patrons think, and the suggestion box
is a feature in their houses. This onc
medium by which public opinion may
makc itself felt. Because of its comparatively low prices, thc motion picture house has" become in many centres a family institution. Its influence
will'be to a very largc extent what

��� A New Copper Smelter
The Consolidated Mining and
Smelting company will build a
copper smelter on Vancouver
Island within a year or two says a
Vancouver report. Basis for the
belief seem to rest chiefly on the
possession by the company of two
copper mines, the Old Sport, operated by the Coast Copper company,
and the Suuloch mines on the
Jordan river. Capital account disbursements, referred to in the last
annual report of the Consolidated
company, show $105,000 on property account for the Sunloch mine
and $170,000 for the Coast Copper.

Grew riotously at her feet.

Where strange young orchids grow.- "
