The Silver Charm Mining &
Milling Company which recently
took over the Spotted Horse mine
on Jubilee Mountain, Greenwood,
commenced operations on this
property last week and the blasting at this mine is ��� a welcome
sound to the people of the town.
The Mining  Truth,  Spokane, -
prints the following story about
this mine:
"The famous Spotted Horse
mine at Greenwood, B.C., is now
being operated by the newly incorporated Silver. Charm Mining
& Milling Company, with offices
in the Alaska building, Seattle.
The. officers .are H. Claude
Myrick, president and ^manager;
W. J. Rogers, vice-president and --
treasurer: and A. N. Wiegenstein,'
trustee. The personnel is the
same as that in the Montana-
Washington Mines Inc., operating
a placer property on Hughes
Creek in Ravalli County, Montana. ���
When Mr. Myrick was in the   '
Mining Truth, office about five
weeks ago he said an important
deal involving a British Columbia -
producer was under way.   Since
that time the Spotted Horse has-.
been purchased from the Jubilee
Mining Company, controlled by
C. E..Bartholomew and associates. *
The price was $25,000;
Previously an attempt had been
made to reope this mine hy J. W.
Williams, and the group who latter took over the Van Dorn -
(Mingo Chief) property in the
Coeur d-Alenes and failed to complete the "option. The Williams-

from  the   Bartholomew   group," .
Myrick    organized   the ~ Silver
Charm company with ��� a capital-   '
ization of $99,999.   It has been
financed in Seattle.
We intend to do considerable
development work which will include the extension of the 84-foot
tunnel already run in on the
ledge, and conditions are -such -
that I believe we will be able to
ship to the Trail smelter within
30 days," Mr. Myrick reports.

not known to contain. "Howard
Dennis, of Spokane brought the
gold ore from Greenwood. He
exhibited a sample of ore containing a little ruby and lead and another piece bearing comparatively
large partidles of glistening gold,
both taken from the same vein.
"The joke is on us," said Mr.
Dennis. "Three weeks ago we'
sold the Spotted' Horse, then the
property of the Jubilee Mining
company, for .$25,000. The high
grade was struck since the sale.
The gold ore has not been assayed
but it has a value of $5000 to the
ton, by estimate. But we experience some satisfaction in having
retained an interest in the Silver
"The vein containing this ore-
was opened on the side of a wall
that is'almost vertical and several ���
hundred feet in height. The
drift was started at a point 75 feet
above the main line "and siding of
the C.P.R. and has been run 82
feet. It has attained -a depth of
250 feet and can attain little more
or less, owing to the topography.
The ore has an average value of
$84 to the ton in silver and lead.
What the gold will raise remains
to be seen. The gold-bearing part
of the body is three feet wide.
The'vein is a true fissure." "

I axatioti In
During ilu. war Canada, liko all countries, was forced lo devise and impose
now ['onus of ty.xutioti in order to raise the large sums of money required to
I'nabl.e the Dominion to worthily, eliicioully and successfully ..discharge its
actional obligations. That titanic struggle lasted so long, and the expenditures
incurrotl were so front, that :i huge national debt resulted, and since the
Armistice interest on that debt has had to he paid, while large expenditures for
pensions and tlie earn of disabled soldiers continue to be necessary. Canada,
ilierciore, musl. raise a largo revenue for Federal purposes,
But this is- not all. The war caused inflation of prices in all commodities,
ani^ of course, revenues which formerly wore adequate for provincial and
municipal purposes were too small, and on lop of higher Dominion taxation
there liad to be. imposed greater taxation by Provincial and municipal governments. '        '"_ .  . ������'
The effect of this taxation is greater In Canada than in the United.States,
because this country entered the war al the beginning, whereas the United
States only came into it jicar the close, and after years during whicu that
country amassed great wealth in the work of supplying goods to the Allied
countries which had turned-their whole industrial fabric from works of pea.ee
production to the requirements of war.
Prior to the war Canada was a low taxed country, but war needs brought
about the imposition of an Income Tax, a tax on, bank cheques, drafts, notes,
etc., a tax on receipts,_taxes on matches and other commodities, an increased
rate of postage, taxes on excess proiits. taxes on business turnover as represented by sales, and sundry other taxes. The accumulation of all these taxes
has, naturally and inevitably, had an adverse effect on investment in industry
and for development purposes, and in the-willingness of both foreign and
domestic mone^j lenders to invest in Canada. Furtlier, the necessity of in-
investing huge sums in Government loa,ns during the war resulted in the-withdrawal of hundreds of millions of dollars from other forms ot investment, to
the detriment ol'iill business, industrial1 growth, and' development . of the
natural resources of the country. .     r     WW .   :    :
With its tremendous aecummulation of wealth during.the v/ar, and the wonderful expansion in production and industrial activity sin co then as a direct
result of that aecummulation of wealth, the United States has been enabled to
rapidly decrease, its Income Tax and lower, or entirely abrogate most'of its war
taxes. This has created a great-disparity in the burden of Federal taxes imposed on the. people of these'two countries, to the' manifest disadvantage of
Canada. On the other hand, Canada compares very favorably with the United
States when Provincial State aud Municipal taxation is compared.-.;
'There is, however, a growing demand throughout the Dominion that, if this
country is not to seriously suffer in the long run, some action must be taken to
lower the burden, of Federal taxation so aa to place the Dominion,on terms of
greater equality in this respect with-our neighbor to thy south. Just how this
is to be accomplished, and at the same time provide the Federal Government
with the revenue it must haye, to meet our war-*'obligations'antl .'current
domestic needs, is the problem.      .- '     !
��� To the solution of this problem the Dominion Government is directing its
attention,* and, fortunately.* the people as a whole, are taking a very keen and
increasing interest in it. This interest is made manifest in the discussions
which took place at the recent- eonventon of the Canadian Board of Trade, in
the publications of the Citizens' Research Institute- of Canada, in'the Dominion-
wide campaign recently inaugurated, by the 'Retail Trade Bureau* of Canada,
and by the. rescMions adopted by the Canadian Council of .Agriculture representing t.bc organized farmers.
Wlv-g. all .these bodies are in agreement on some points, they arc at variance in important respects as to': policies which should be adopted. All strongly
favor more economical administration*, tlie elimination of "partizansnip aud.
politics from the business of government, reduced expenditures; and a more
careful survey of national conditions before embarking on future capital outlays, all of which will'make for lower taxation. Bul. they differ when it comes
to the question of just what taxes should now be entirely eliminated. There fire
two sides to these questions, as there are to most.issues of outstanding importance, and it will bo of value to consider these in a subsequent article.
. ���-"' The present, gratifying fact,is that a step has,beeu taken in the direction
desired by all, namely/reduction of taxation. The present year has seen the
excess war postage rates Aviped out, the tax on receipts repealed, the tax on
bank cheques for small amounts removed, aud a substantial-:retlaction made in
tbe Income Tax, especially on. smaller!' incomes. Furthermore,, the Finance
Minister has aunouueed'that further reductions will be shortly forthcoming, and
press despatches have reported that he has ordered a survey by departmental
���ollicials of.the operation of'the. Income Tax and Sales Tax, and their effect on
business and the country's development in general" with- a view-to.guiding the
Government in the preparation of tlie next budget... .

Modern Sea Mysteries
Sailors Encounter Many Tragedies
Which Cannot be Explained
In spite of the advance of science
along the lines .of steam, electricity,
wireless communication, .ship construction and a hundred other things,
mysteries of the ocgan-still continue.
Tragedies, grim and inexplicablo
still keep obtruding themselves, and
the science of man seems impotent
when pitted against the vast weight,
might and uncertainty of thc seas.
One of the latest mysteries is thai
surrounding a schooner, the "Mary
Cornish." "Fate of her crew unknown."
She was picked up by aii American
steamer in lho mid-Pacific, drifting
before the trade wind with her sails
loosely stowed. The schooner was in
trim, and apparently had not encountered any dirty weather; on deck,-ami
below, all was iu order; and the trade-
room and liquor cases had not been
disturbed. In the deck'house, where
a swing-lamp was still burning,'lay a
copy of the Sydney Mail many months
old, slightly charred "and'with, blood
stains on it; and there, top, a parrot,
dead in its cage. None of her boats
were missing. But not a living thing
was to be found in Iter. The. doom of
her crew is another unsolved mystery
ot the sea.  ' .
eases ended in death! .So a -recent
Canadian Investigation showed.
These were not cases of infectious
diseases ��� ot consumption ��� of ty.

Spiritualism In Britain
Growth of Movement Sponsored by

London, when eight thousand were
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, leading the
services,""suddeuly appealed to his
hearers, shouting: "I ask all who are
sure that they have been in tou��h with
their dead to rise and testify."
More than 3,000 men and women of
all types quietly rose and this brought
from Sir Arthur this fervent stale-
mem :
"Thank God there aro so many, I
prophesy within live years that to
auch an appeal every man and. woman
will rise.
We are noi testifying to faith but.
to fact."
The growth of the belief in spirit
communication, so persistently expounded by Sir Oliver Lodge aud Sir
Arthur Cumin Doyle, has apparently
been extraordinary.
In the course of his address "Sir
Conau said: "We say here iu mid-
London and in cold bloodi, and pledge

"Pains in my lungs, shortness of

by Tanlac to try it out.
"I was able to.get-up. and_ move

Many of Russian Crown Jewels
Some ordinary woman soon will

wants it and can afford it."
This ornament and others of Hie
collection of Russian crown jewels are
now' in Now York, having been purchased from the Soviet by Norman C.
Weiss, diamond merchant of New York
and London. The price pjiid for.the
crown has not been made public.
It contains 1.G20 diamonds, "and is
surmounted by a superb cross ol" huge
jewels. Most unique among the items
purchased by Mr, Weiss, however, is
j a baby's rattle of solid gold and'ivory
' which was used by the late .Czar In
his babyhood.    This imperial  toy is
valued at ^$5,000.   At'cno end of., llie

Matters of Trade
Hon. Vincent Massey's official, lili'.-
as Canadian minister  in  Wasl.i.igion
is "envoy'extraordinary and  minislei
plenipotentiary." T-Ji^ duties, as broadly stated in the order in-council, which
recommend.', thai. Iho King be humbly
moved lo appoint him, are "to represent in the Unilod Stale's of America,
the inlorests   of    (he    Dominion    of
Canada."   II. was ilie intention in Hie
original agreement  of  .H!20   between
Ihe Bntish and Canadian governments
lhat the Canadian minister should be
a member of the Brili'jh embassy and
would have charge in the absence of
Iho ambassador of llie embassy and of
tho rciiresontaiion of Imperial, as well
as of Canadian Interosls.   This part of
Uie original plan has boon abandoned
and Mr. Massey will represent Canada
only. '
It has been considered de.-irable, in
view of the increasing range, importance-and urgency offluesfions requiring adjustment between Canada ancl
the United Stales that the dominion
should bo represented at Washington
by a diplomatic representative with a
first hand knowledge of Canadian conditions. Mr. Massey-will serve as the
ordinary cliannol of communication
between the two " governments and
will act upon instructions of the secretary "of��� state for '-external affairs
(PremierKing) and report lo him.
The new arrangement does not denote any departure either on lhe part
of the Uritish government or of the
Canadian government from Che principle, of the diplomatic unify of the
British empire.
President Coolidge   has    indicated
that thc United States law does not
permit of the appointment of a U.S.
ambassador or minister    to    Canada,
and ihai consular matters, in which
Canada is concerned aro handled efficiently under  present  arrangements.
For the present, therefore, Mr. Mas-
sey's efforts   may be largely devoted
to matters of trade.    Canada's total
business with the  United  Slates exceeds  a billion dollars  annually,  so
tliat the   new   envoy   extraordinary
should have plenty lo keep him occupied".    Canadian mills sell one hundred  million  dollars worth of newsprint   to   United   Stales    publishers
every, year, ��-18,000,000 worth of sawmill producis,    $57,000,000   worth    of
metal arid metal    products.    Exports
include ��57,000.000 of   livestock   and
animal -products, while -among the imports from the U.S.. are 50 or GO million dollars worth of coal every year.
