The decreases far exceed the Increases! ; We are often asked how this; was possible in view of the tremendous advances in the cost of materials, increased transportation and labor charges and heavy excise taxes.-^Tbe answer is by increasing sales five fold, and then reducing overhead charges, and by the employment of the most efficient manufacturing methods known to the industry to-day. Our great artfets also co-operated with us by reducing their royalty fees so to place thei; master-pieces within the reach of all.

"president of the Irish repub- ? lie," denies that documents ? found. iu his possession when ? he was arrested in May, 1918, ? implicated him or anyone else in any conspiracy, as stated by his government. , ? OTTAWA, Dec. 3.-'(Canadiah Press)-There isiSiow every likelihood that Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitotia, ' will become dry toward the end �of" January. Since the plebiscite^ on importation were taken, much study has been given to a curious legal situation, which had aris en. The point was whether government vendors could be properly classed as holding licenses, If so action to prohibit importation would be taken under one clause of the Canada Temperance Act. If not, under another clause and between the two, there is a difference of at least 30 days. in the period within which liquor may still be imported for personal use. Although the opinion of the govem-me-nt's legal advisers has hot been made public, it is said to favor the view that the references to licenses in the Canada Temperance Act does not mean licensed vendors for medicinal and sacramental purposes. If this view is accepted, importation into ; four provinces can be prohibited by the Dominion government at any time after the official returns have been received and the prohibition will take effect "after the expiration ofj 30 days from the day of the date of an order-ln-conpcll to that effect." The official returns are expected to! become complete by the middle of | the present month. Thirty days later, allowing time for consideration, would carry the date for prohibiting Importation up to about the end of January.
