VVHY.NOTSET BREAD PRICES TOO? YVhea the government set the price of wheat and'fixed a slandaj-d of flour iho nalurar expectation was the price of bread would become a fixed factor in thacoEl of living. It appears pow, however, that this is not so. The 'recent government order requiring the use of substitutes.-made from cereals on which the price Is not fined, has resulted locally in an increase in the) price of bread by 10 per cent It would be impossible to say with- out careful investigation that the new not in keeping, with the costs entering into the manufacture, but It does seem absurd thai the price offbeat and the standard of Ingre- 'dlehts in be fired with- out the price being fixed. Why not carry the process to its logical conclusion? Evsry'one would be better eatlstied U this were done. Just what this will, mean to tho shipment ot wheat from the prairie west-It-is hard as yel to-decide. But there ate indications that it will have a far-reaching effect on the routes. For one Ihine, given equitable freight rates, there Is an Incentive to ship from Pacific Coast ports owing to the fact that they are year-round and this would do away with the inevitable rush which attends the movement of. the Western Canada wheat crop each year before of navigation on the Great Lakes. This would tend to set up a more even trend of business over the whole year in Western Canada and Also relieve our transportation facilities of the necessity ot .being pre- pared with rolling stock itoxhandle the peak load develops in'tho west every failedurin'g the movement of wheat and coal in an easterly direc- tion.- SHOULD ADVERTISE MERITS OF OUR COAL. 'WIthoat "knocking" any other coa] produced jn Alberta', bs- would be good business for the cu> oi Lethbridge and tho mining concerns In this district to Issue a statement in pamphlet or other form setting; forth the superiority ot lump coal produced In this field in storing qualities. It 13 very evident from the opinions of Alberta coal expressed in tbe.Mani- toba Press' that Manilobans have little conception of the qualities of the coal from the Lethbridge Held as compared wilh the Pennsylvania .coal they havo bsett accustomed -to ise. con- coal as- Alberta coal; and place all Alberta coal on par though tltflreMjra wrdirdifference Iu the.qual- ity The time is coming soon when coal will compete on the Utcltoba market wllh coat from the northern part of the province, and thing that can bs done to popularize tha Loth-bridge coa! and differentiate it from poorer coals mined in the reflect In Ihe greater busi- ness which will come to the mines of this district another year.

Tho fact that Americans resident In Canada are'liable to the U.S. income tai as well as ta the Canadian Income tax las caused a lot ot discussion and Borne criticism in Ibo past year. Now we llnd a number ol leading Ameri- cans icslding in Toronto, taking an HC- tive stand bgalntt the double tai with lhe mult that lhe following appeal Is being forwarded to congress: tailed States ne Can- residing in the United States lax (the the Canadlari residing in Canada pays one tax (lhe but the American tending In Canada pays two taxes, tamely, lha American and tho Cana- "We therefore appeal lo Iho Con- gross of the United States and the and Means.

Into the mountains on the way to the coast, Crow route has been 'established as the best freight-grade to the coast, and Letb- bridge would naturally feel a good ef- fect from the movement of prairie wheat through- the mountains' to the hew outlets at Vancouver, Seattle and Portland. And- with the establishment of wheat exporting .ports on the- Pacific Coast il not be long until there Tvould biiestaWlEhed there large Job-. bins concerns Imposing from -the countries to. which oar wheat coutd be shipped. iThese in turn will look to Lethbridge as a distributing centre on this side of the. mountains.
