P/P.,'  for Grand Forks, in the   legislature  on Tuesday in connection   with', the "7  way in which the Liberals won   the  bye   elections, in    Vancouver    iad 'r<  Victoria   have   created    a   stir-'Jiri  political  circles   here.

As it would cost $22.50 a month to  affect an improvement, the value of  which, was doubted over existing  system, the discussion ended in the  proposed change being relegated to  a state of statu quo.  Moved by Aid. Biner and seconded  by D. J. McDonald that Aid. F.  Mr. Donald interview Mr. Stafford,  at the Granby compressor with a  view to improving the arrangements  for speedier siren alarms.  The city replied to Mr. Parker,  who threatened suit for injuries sustained, when his horse threw him  over an unfenced embanbment. The  text of the reply was that the corporation did not consider themselves  liable. <-  N. J. Carson, secretary of the  school board, appeared before the  board and spoke both in his official  capacity and as a citizen re the increase in school, estimates granted  by the council last meeting. Mr.  Carson contended that inasmuch as  the school board was overdrawn last  year, and that the estimates covered  increase in the principal's salary it  was up to the council ro say whether  the additional expenditure covered  should stand. He understood the  principal had been buttonholing  some of the aldermen.  The buttonholing charge was denied by a majority of the aldermen.  Alcf. Rogers���"The estimates are  not worth the paper they're, written  on. They are always overdrawn,  and in debt now."  The mayor explained that the  school board commenced 1916 with  a clean financial sheet, last year's  overdraft having been charged to  profit and loss account. He contended with his colleagues that the  $5 salary increase had nothing to  do with them. If Aid. Rogers objected to1 increased estimates, why  did he not say so last meeting. It  was not their place to run the school  board.  Aid.    Almstrom���"Aid.     Rogers  To  the  in  deplored that Aid. Rogers as an ex  laborer who has tasted the bitterness of a frugal salary should be so  mercenary as to wish to cut any  appropriation covering wages,  put it another way: If he had  right, he should not exercise it,  view of the fact that he is supposed  to have embraced Socialistic principles years ago.       '  Poor George! It's too bad this  sudden jump from the fold of the  class conscious. But any time an  "eagle" gets away from this alderman it is sure going to emit a doleful squawk���for the tail feathers  will be missing. . ,  Dan Lpst His Black Strap  Hythe, Kent,  Feb. 15, 1916.  Dear Mrs. Ingram:���I received  your letter of Dec. 30 a few days  ago and was glad to hear you were  all well. Well, we have been down  here in Hythe about two months in  billets, and I have been on the"com-  pany police. I have had a good  time since I came back from the  front.- About the letters: .  About the parcels you have sent: I  got one before we went to Vpres,  last April. There was, as you say,  four pounds of tobacco and of that  I gave some away to the other boys  and I had two pounds in my knapsack at  Langemarck,   and   the   ��� Germans captured it.     It  made me wild to think of the  Bosches chewing good Fhoenix  blackstrap. The other parcels have  no doubt gone to the regiment, and  the boys up there, not having my  address, will have kept them. I  don't think that I will be back in  Phoenix very soon. I went through  a medical examination a few days  ago, the doctor could not find anything the matter with me, so 1 guess  I'm for the front <-igain whenever  they need reinforcements. No  doubt that will be as soon as they  start fighting in . .

What he proposes therefore is quite  the 'contrary. He would tax the  mining industry more severely than  ���any other industry in' the country.  The grossly unfair treatment of  successful mining companies has not  been pointed out by the minister in  the House. He has also worded  his proposal that discrimination  against mining companies is not  apparent to those who are unfamiliar  with the mining industry. By putting companies of so many kinds- in  one class he strikes a blow at mining  in an effective manner without the  average citizen realizing the injustice  and shortsightedness of it. A producing mine is a wasting asset.  Sir Thomas knows it. Why does  he ignore the fact?"  Development of our resources and  increase in proportion should be the  aim of our government at all  times  and.'particularly  now.     Why  does  Sir Thomas propose   to   discourage  the investment, of foreign capital?  : It inust, of  course,   be  admitted  that a minister'of .'-finance   in   these  days has an extremely difficult task.  It is easy to criticize his   proposals,  for new methods'of taxation must be  devised to  meet   the   war   expenditures, and new methods are   almost  sure   to   result   in  distributing   the  burden unevenly.    Sir Thomas   undoubtedly   wants   to   place    it    on  those most able to   bear it.     Many  have made fortunes out of Canada's  mines,  and   the   minister   naturally  considers that such persons   should  contribute freely.    A reasonable tax  on the profits of successful   mining  companies, in spite of the fact   that  mining, like agriculture, is   a   basic  industry and deserving of the fostering   care   of   government,    might,  under the circumstances, have been  accepted   by  mining men   without  protest.    An unfair tax such as Sir  Thomas proposes is,  however,   beyond all reason.-    '  Sir Thomas said in his budget  speech that seven per cent, per  annum is, in,normal years;ja reasonable profit on the paid up capital of  a  mining''company.'

If there were no  prizes there would be little development of our mineral 7 resources. If  such a tax as Sir Thomas proposes  were enacted. development of  Canada's mineral resources would  undoubtedly be checked.  lii   accepting    the   challenge    of  Germany to fight for our possessions  Canada   has   accepted    a    financial  burden which "makes   the  develop-  ment of our resources more necessary   than   ever.     We   s'bould    and  could greatly   increase   production.  During 1916, if Sir  Thomas*, modi-  ties his proposal,   there   will   be  a  great increase in mining activity  in  Canada.     It   is   to   be   hoped" -that  further   consideration   of    possible  results"of the  proposed   legislation  will result in more   favbrable, treatment of mining companies.  We believe that Canada's" mineral  resources are great and   that  with  due care on the part of the  government the production in T916 will be  much  larger, than" ever,   and-  that  future years will see great increases  in  output.    Ore   undiscovered    is,  however, of no present  value,   and  ore undeveloped is of doubtful value.  To make our  mineral   resources  a  source of revenue there must be   an  expenditure  of capital'and   labor.  These are the main sources of profit  ���in mining.'

Thomas   White,   minister  7 7 of finance.     It   is    seldom   that   a  ���   -minister is called upon   to -meet   so  7 ,: many difficulties in a   few  years   as  7 ^hajEuSir Thomas, and it is fortunate  , ���;,^fqr Canada that such   an   able   man  ��� '^fills the important office .of  minister  7of fioance at this time.     All   admire  the skill and courage with which he  bas met new conditions as they have  arisen.    His proposal to single   out  one of Canada's chief  basic   indus-  ; tries for  especially   heavy   taxation  ��� was    therefore1    unexpected.    The  minister  having  well    earned    the  confidence  of, the   people,    mining  men on reading newspaper accounts  of   the 7 proposed   tax    on    profits  assumed that special provision  had  been made to provide for fair treat.  .   ment of mining companies.     If such  is the case, and we sdll trust that it  I is, no announcement has been made.  It is an axiom   of good   gbvern-  :, ment that basic industries should be  7, encouraged.     Sir Thomas seems to  7 , recognize this when he   singles   out  ^.agriculture for favorable   treatment.  7:Agriculture   is    Canada's    greatest  .7basic industry and   well   merits   the  7f fostering care- of  our  government.  ;^vMining-is, next to  agriculture,   our  ' 7greatest basic   industry. -��� It   might  have been expected that-Sir Thomas  would therefore sho>v some concern  for the future of the mining industry.  resources,  stating  on  the   floor  of  the House that seven per  cent,  per  annum is, in normal years, a reason-  Lie profit on the paid upcapitsl ��� of  a mining company. "The statement  is absurd, and yet/ sq far as we have  been informed, it was scarcely commented   on   in    the  -, House,    but  swallowed whole by our representatives. - . ���_ '       "       "  The life of a mine is  short.    The  profitable  life  is   shorter.,." In   Ontario the profitable Hfe of most mines  is less than teii years. " How would  you like to invest your^rn'oney  in  a  mine that would yield ybu seven,per  cent, for ten years and eat up 'your  invested capital in that time?    What  would   the   people ' think    if    our  minister of finance  should   propose  to invest government funds in   such  an   enterprise?    Can   you   imagine  Sir Thomas makingsuch a proposal?  Mining   is - attractive   because   it  frequently    yields     large     profits.  Mining men take risks because   the  prizes are big.    Undeveloped ore is  of doubtful value.    It takes   money  and labor to  develop  ore   and   determine, whether   it  can   be   mined  profitably or not.     Money  spent   in  exploration and development is often  Since the above was written we  have been advised that Sir Thomas'  propopals will be modified and ' that  when the bill is introduced it will be  found to contain provisions which  the finance minister thinks will meet  the criticisms which have,, been  offered.  On Februnry 23, in reply - to  questions in the House, Sir Thomas  intimated that in the case of mining  companies provision woujd be made  for a partial return of capital investment. .  It appears that either the minister  has been, by criticism,;, convinced  that the original , proposal is  dangerous or that tiisoriginal. pro  posal has ..been'.-misinterpreted..'..-,.In  one of his statements 6 Th ursday,  February 23, he said that "the.  profits to:, be taken will be net  profits." This might be interpreted  to mean ,p,rofits',vafter-;ret'u'rri7of;'.capi-'  tal had, been provided ,^  intimations make us wonder whether  Sir Thomas has not been misunderstood.��� Canadian^ M  ,'��� -.'"  ,'.'". " ,7,. '���"."'.:,���~"~���'",.":'.-���'  The adequate financing of a  mining company is of supreme impor-1  tance, because; a   strong treasury  means that the  mine  can  be sup-  plfed   with   first-class    equipment.  With modern facilities for  developing the property "maximum efficiency  is secured and. the chances for creating n dividend payer are multiplied.  To operate a mine with  any  but  the    latest     improved     equipment  known to mining science is  usually  a grave error.     Many   a   mine  has  been a failure on account of its poor  facilities   for   mining,   rather    than  because   it  lacked   promising   ore.  Proper  paraphernalia   reduces    the  cost of production; and only  a  few  cents saved on,the ton of ore  often  will transform a losing mine  into  a  money-maker.  Commercial failures frequently  are caused by a.lack of sufficient  capital to .operate the unfortunate  enterprises along broad and effective  lines. The same is equally .true of  mining companies; for the rules  governing,commeicial success control the destinies of mining with  similar certainty.     , ���  Let ^Simliglit  Dispel the  Gloom  THE shadow of a blue  Monday does not  fall across the path  of those who use Sunlight  Soap.

Lyneh,  general   merchant,   and  the probability is  that  considerable  work will be done  on   the   ground.  The Lead Mountain   mineral  claim  consists of five groups and a total of  27    claims.    The     showings     are  numerous and strong, and the indications are that  another   important  camp is to be built up in that district.
