Victoria, December 15.���Taxation
changes more extensive- than in the
budget speech were proposed to the
legislature this afternoon, when Hon.
Dr." J. D. MacLean, minister of
finance, introduced his bill to amend
the Taxation Act.
1.���The rate of taxation on crown
granted timber is reduced from 3 per
cent. ,to li per cent., ~as'a result-of
the assessment now completed, which .
gives such an increased valuation that ,
even with the reduced rate, the crown
revenue will be increased by $125,000
a year.
2.'���The proposed 10 per.cent,
deduction , on personal property tax
will apply to all who pay this tax,
except 'where the levy  is less than
3.���A "new tax of 50 cents a ton is
imposed .upon every ton. of fish used
by the growing-fish meal and fish oil
industries of the province.
4.���The. war" time change in the
gold tax is 'repealed,- and hereafter
ggld mines will pay the same 2 per
cent, mineral tax as other 'mines pay.
To encourage the small miner, the
first #5,000 production will be ex- .
empt.     '. -^ - "~
- 5.���Industries paying interest" on
debentures will be allowed- exemption
in their income tax statements to the
|_amount of interest paid on debentures
1 held within the "province, and thus
taxable on the revenue the debenture
holders receive from such investments. Where the interest is paid
outside; the provinceand the recipients -
cannot be reached,'the maximum rate
is reduced from -10 per cent, to 4. per
6.���The announced income tax
reductions are specifically set forth in
the bill.
7.���Exemption   of   life" insurance
premiums from income tax is fixed at
#5QQ instead  of at  one-sixth  of the
taxpayer's gross income- The change v
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 of 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 benig restored "except in
the case  of the small mines, which
are protected by a provision  that the
first -,$5,000   production   is exempt.
The tax' applies  to both  placer  and
quartz mining. '

Mr. Cudworth had come on to
cougar's tracks crossing the main

not far from the Sidley school.
He immediately secured a rifle
and weat ,in.,, pursuit on horseback accompanied by his aird-ale
dog. After a six or seven mile
hike he came near the cougar
which climbed a large tamarac
tree on .seeing jbe- dog. - Mr.
Cudworth brought the cougar to

Peace On Earth; Goodwill Toward Men
New   Industry   At   Coast
Raising  Pedigree Rabbits Is Fasit Becoming Paying Industry
A little-noticed industry, but one
that bids fair to attain large proportions on Vancouver Island, is rising
almost in I.he middle of the city and
around' suburban homes���pedigree
rabbit rearing. On the Saanich Peninsula alone there are now more than
twenty rabbitries, some already operating on a large scale, and other's fast
growing tp^sizabl.e. proportions.
. While the production of! thoroughbred rabbits for stock purposes is at
present tho most paying end of the
modern rabhitry business, the possibilities of fur-raising and meat production loom large on. the. market side of
the industry now In Its infant stages
compared to the proportions it has
reached in other countries.
It may come'as a surprise to the
layman to learn that a thoroughbred
rabbit brings ?100 to $200 ln the market, for breeding purposes, and that
it is a common thing for certain breeds
to attain a weight of from fifteen to
eighteen pounds.
The growing demand for furs for
women's dresses and other use's has
led to a great increaso in the use of
dyed furs. The rabbit supplies a'verj
large percentage of the artificially prepared furs, passing under trade names.
This i.s ihe season when the old Christmas song of the angels, "Peace on
f-arill, good-will toward men," will be sung throughout t.he world, when from
press and pulpit the glories of peace and good-will among all men and nations
will be proclaimed, when exhortations will bo -voiced urging all people by
precept und the force of example to:do what lies in their power to promote
these essential aualitios at homo and abroad.
Perhaps never before in tlie world's history did tliere exist a more earnest
aad widespread desire for international peace and good-will, and the greatest
and mosl outstanding evidences of this is to be found in the signiug of llie
I.oc-arno treaties, and in the growing influence of the League of Nations.
Tliere is also in evidence iu many countiies, and happily so in Canada, a
him<T and growing spirit of tolerance. More and more there is developing
a willingness? among people to let bygones bo bygones, to accord to others
Unit same liberty or thought in matters of language, religion, politics, and
racial customs whicli one demands for oneself. Canadians generally are not
now concerning the tussive.-, with petty i.isuos as to .whether their neighbors
of foreigu lu'rfh continue to make use of their mother tongue, or Avorship ("foil
i:i some manner different from their own. There is, in Canada, a growing
acceptance of a man for ills own character and qualities mil to apart irom his
lacial biigiu, the language he .speaks, or the alLar at which he worships. Tho
g'Mieral recognition and acceptance ot such views is e.--senliai to the d^velop-
jiicfl ot peace and good-will.
I "nfortiiiifiLoly, tliere is o;h- section of ihe-world win re, as yet, this spirit
does not hold sway; where, on the contrary, all the old racial, linguul and religions uidiriosilJes are flaming, and still threaten, tlie" peace of the world.
The reference is to tliat group of small independent nations iu Southeastern
Kuropc known as the Balkan State*, .for the past three-quarters of a century
or more liiis conglomerate mlxUiio of races and religions has disturbed the.
peace of JKuropo, and hardly" a year-passes without'the threat of a new con-

peace, these iiLUe States remain hoi beds of suspicion and intrigue, seemingly

Avoid Serious' Results -by Using
���Baby's Own Tablets
When a child shows the first symptoms of a cold, such as sneezing, redness of the eyes, clogged or running
nose, prompt measures for relief may
avert serious results. Mothers should
always havo on hand some simple,

boy had a cold [ gave him the Tablets

Disarmament Is Only Solution
Locarno Pact Merely Marks Beginning
Of European Peace
What is to come after Locarno? ���
This is the question the British press
and public are asking.     Ramsay MacDonald ancl Lloyd George,- both former premiers, Viscount Cecil ancl Austen
Chamberlain,   the   foreign   secretary,
have repeatedly stated  that the "Locarno pact, which was signed Dec. 1,
merely marks  the begi'nning_ of Europe's peace.'   It settles the differences
between France and Germany but the
other European, states and Great Britain now need guarantees against 'war.
"���Disarmament is conceded to be the
only solution, bul how this can be effected with safety and justice to all
is a burning question.
Viscount Cecil indicated recently in
the House of Lords that Britain was
seriously considering a new disarmament conference and will shortly
bring out disarmament plana of its
own, but the difficulty of doing'this is
pointed out in the press, becauso of
Britain's insular position and the resultant dangers she stands from enemy air and submarine forces. Though
Germany and France are at peace,
their air and undersea forces still
menace the British Isles.     ;

Took  Active" Interest   In  Society   For
Prevention_of Cruelty 7
Queen Alexandra's fondness for animals and her activities in thei'r behalf
are recalled by Richard C. Cffrven, organizer ,of the American Humane Association.-.- :/' x. Z; ;'y
X '.'Queen-Alexandra������_became a.patron
of the Royal-Society for-the Prevention.: of Cruelty to Animals more than
GO years -ago," .said Mr.'Craven, "'and
in 18S0 as Princess-"of Wales attended the annual-meeting.of the.society
arid presented prizes to winners in.the
humane essay competition. .    -
"it was Alexandra's husband, after-;
wards Kiug- Edward VII., who used his
Influence to end the cropping-of dogs.
One of their first acts on ascending
the throne was to abolish the. royal
buck hounds, whicli had, been in existence 700 years, because ithey disapproved o'f the hunting of tame deer.
,rAs Princess of Wales, Alexandra
headed a movement to-stop pigeon
shooiing at Hurlingham, condemned
the wearing of otprey aud other lea..��-
ers, the use of bearing reins, and llie
mutilation- of animals. ^During the
war she aided the work of the Royal
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Animals, in connection with tlie
tens or thousands of army horses.
"Alexandra's love for animals with
shown in a thousand ways. The painting by Fildes shows her with a tiny
spaniel. Her beautiful dogs_wcre exhibited at shows.-
"The most touching evidence of her
love-for dumb-animals may be seen in
the burial grounds of some of her favorites at Marlborough House. On the
simple stones are the records of \, hat
they were .and when, they died."

District In North \
Interests Scientists
Area in B.C., Can be Reached Only by
��� -Rough Trails
A vast new area teeming with objects of unusual -scientific interest
and of unparalleled scenery has bejjii
explored during the past few months
by Harlan I. Smith., of the "field.������"staff
of the Victoria ;.Museum,'-.'6ttava:.\. ".'���''
This area, little known to the white
man: because it is locked away many
miles -from transportation facilities
and can be penetrated only by' rough
trails which wind over mountains and
through dense forest's .'many miles, from*
the centres' of civilization, has been
given the name of- Mackenzie Park.
In this "park "Mr. Smith has found,
among'other things, one-fifth of the
known petroglyplis of Canada and "a
great waterfall wliich in point of
iieighi may prove to be amottg tiie
first five in the world.
Huge glaciers stud the mountains in
this region, grizzlies and other wild
game are abundant and tlie Indian
types offer -i rich field for study.
The district was named after Sir
Alexander Mackenzie, Uie first white
man io cross Canada and one of the
few men who Jed an expedition over
thc Bella Coola trail.
The great waterfall -noted by Mr.
Smith is said to have a drop of $28
feet, Avhich would make it the highest
in Canada, ihe second highest in_ the
western hemisphere and the fifth highest In tho world. ',
From a zoological standpoint, the
Bella Cooja district has few equals,
if any, in Canada. Here is a district
where mountain goats have been shot
from the side of tlie, road^j where fourteen baldheaded- eagles have been
counted on a single tree; where huge
sand sharks and sea fans aro to be
found in -the 'deep fiords\jyIiich indent
J.he coast. _
For the lover of romance, tlie artist
and literary person, .few districts, ar-
ford the'same opportunities afc Bella
.Coola. Among the human types that
may be encountered in various parts
of the""district'Jare Norwegian fishermen living according to tho traditions
of Iheir lairi; Indians who are among
(ho craok horsemen of tho continent;
cowboys, - French-Canadian' trappers

Erected   By   Emperor  In   Memory  Of

Chili Iluang-ti, the emperor who
united all China, came to the throne in
246 B.C. It was Chih who built the
Great Wall to keep the country together.
A woman from the south, so ihe
legend runs, brought cott.ou-wadded
'clothes for her man, who had becn
impressed bv the emperor to help
build tlie-wall. She was told that
her, husband had died, and thai she
could ^ not have his body because h
had been thrown between the brick
facings^ of the wall and crushed there
under tons of rubble and earth.      _.
The woman persuaded a comrade
of her husband to show her the stretch
of wall where the body of her husband
lay. Three days and three nights
there after she walked up and down
that" length, until the compassion of
the divine power was excited by her
laments, and tha't part of the wall collapsed.
.. The scandal canit* to the ears'of tho
emperor, who recognized, beneath his
tyranny, thai ihe conduct of ilie woman had been most orthodox. To
regularize tho matter, he directed tliat'

The postal service is, in fact,
the children's Santa Claus at
Christmas and the grown-up'^
Santa Claus all the year round.
This reference to the" postal
service as a Santa Claus has a
particular significance at the
present time. We are at the
threshold of another "Christmas

prepare for this holiday season,
we are too apt to forget the
postal employees who are doing
their utmost 'to "see that your

good wishes and remembrances
of absent friends. Truly the
postal workers are acting as your
Santa Claus aud in doing so their
own enjoyment of the holiday if
largely lost, in that���instead of
spending this "day of days" with
their families,, they must "work
harder than usual to deliver"the
vast , load' of -Christmas mail
which has piled into the post
office at the last minute.
You can roake Christmas day a
holiday for the "all year round"
Santa Claus by obeying that oft
repeated slogan---1'Shop" early���
Mail early". , A-few days earlier
in mailing means no Christmas
day rush, no tie up of mails, but
instead' a    real    "c!eaa-up"   by
"Christmas eve.and a regular holiday for the postal service. - Yott,

,hands the granting of this favor.

, gelling those cards and Christmas
presents  off 'earlier   than  usual.

all means mail early and give
