Perhaps before Sir Thomas White's budget is out this year the Canadian steel Interests may persuade a spokesman, preferably a chairman Itkd Hon. Col.

MAcdon THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR No untoward incident has apparently as yst taken place which would warrant the United States from going farther than- its severance of relations with Germany, but nrepara-tious tor actual war are going forward with all speed, and the war machinery of the country is being brought to its highest efficiency as fast as possible. The Atlantic fleet is preparing for service, and full supplies for the army on a war basis are being called tor. Several vessels carrying V. S. citi-sens are approaching or are about to sail for the war zones but Germany has as yet given little tangible evidence of her new determination of a relentless submarine warfare, at least BO far as It concerns the States, and the doubt Is being freely expressed! that Germany's campaign of frlghtful-ness can possibly amount to the dan; ger whlcK was at first feared. The BriUsh and Turks are engaged In severe fighting on the Tigris, and the -British have reported some success. On the western front the Germans have been active at Verdun, but for the most part have been repulsed by the French. z The Edmonton Journal says:-Therc vas a time when the people of om" steel interests of Canada have been compulsory national service? bolstered along by both Liberal and Conservative Governments ot the Dominion. They, h.ave bean paid big bounties in times past. Now tliat they jare making big profits, the Citizen believes 'it the duty of the Government to nee that the steel companies pay back at least the amount of bonus received in years past. Labor will have no quarrel with the Citizen on this point -when it says: This is the tlmo when the hiphly privileged sttel interests in Canada should he Inrited to make n substantial^,refund to the Dominion treasury. Between 1S96 and 1913 this Dominion paid In bounties to the Canadian steel intsrfests the "sum ot $ Bounties on Iron were paid also before ^^896: time and another, according to the' official reports, the Canadian li^n and steel interests have been presented with^ $17,202,550 in the form of bounties from the Dominion treasury.

We have had previous hints about the likelihood of legislation In aid of rural hospitals, farm credits and other natters of prime importance, but the Bnnouncement.that the soldiers of the |: es on imported steel, to maintain the enrichment of the few protected interests,. Altogether It has probably cost the plain' people ot Canada over $40,000,000 to fatten the steel infant. .

This is the edict passed by the Board of Control. . ^ Prank Beers, who supplied customers over the bar at the Bull's Head hotel, Toronto, with beer which con- province are to have representation in the legislature through two members elected by them to sit for two constituencies at large, is indicative of the manner in which the govemmen't at'�dmonton-considers the debt of the forious profiteering surpluses ot the iron and steel industries. According to the evidence of. 1915 alone they would be justified in taking back the whole $17,202,550 advanced from the Dominion treasury in bygone years in the form of bounties; and It is publicly advertised that 1916 profits far exceed 1915. However, according to the Department of Trade and Commerce report, Census and Statistics monthly, the val ,ue of Canadian iron and steel products totalled $119,636,755 during the year 1915. Out ot this total the share paid in wages to labor amounted to $27,022,793. This portion, less than �25 per cent of the total value, paid the wages of 53.182 toilers in the steel and iron mills: so that the Canadian steel workers drew an average wage ot-$50S per year, or $42,33 per month. or � about $9,75 per week!

Presuming that the C. P.

Railways are public service corporations, and the public has a right to expect service. That they did not get it in this instance is plain to be seen. The Herald would not bother to call attention to the matter were it not at the annual meeting of the British company in 1915, and say it tor the Canadian companies, Giving hearty approval to the policy of the British budget, of taxing i-var profits in the early months,'of the war. Dr. Larimer said: "To my mind there is something absolutely revolting in the idea of anybody making profits out of the nation's agony-and especially so in the case of a man or a company who have had no extra labor or anxiety, but whose opportunity has come because of an artificial scarcity created by the government on account of the nation's need ....
