THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The Germans are meeting with little j Opposition in their advance into Russia, ; and could very likely take the capital i With ease. There is only a small force ! engaged in the invasion. The Bolshe-vlki hare issued an order that the army shall resist the invasion but it is being given little heed. The Australia In the south are advancing in conjunction with the Germans In Northern Russia. There la little development as yet cm the westernwar front, and there is bo further indication as to when the big clash is likely to occur. rylng this cannot be deducted from the income by way of salary, but if there are other sources of income one may, as far as they go, charge the expense of carrying the unproductive asset to them. If outside salary or regular income a person invests, say, in bonds or stocks, profit on the capital invested is not taxable, nor loss deductible from income, but interests or dividends tun. less in the latter rase the company declaring them has paid tax under the Act, ! or in. the former case they be Dominion bonds issued free of tax) received therefrom are taxable. As in the case of the business profits tax, many queries will arise but the act should bo working smoothly in the near future. In the meantime, enough is known of its provisions for the public to prepare to complete their forms, as soon as re- � ceived and return them promptly to the authorities. Mrs. j.

SITTING A LINE ON THE PEOPLE'S BUSINESS w Under the new compulsory registration; now to be made in Canada every person, male or female, over sixteen years of age, will have to take out a registration certificate, give details of occupation, physical fitness, adapt-ability to or experience in agricultural production, and other data enabling the government to know fully the labor resources of the country, how these resources are absorbed by industry at present, and what readjustment of supply and demand is feasible. Once the information is obtained,.and each person is classified, the next step will be to evolve practical methods of inducing or compelling each person to take up his or her proper share of the national task. REQUESTS MADE ARK REASONABLE That the government of Canada amend the land settlement act and make it possible for the wife of a Canadian soldier to file on land for her husband serving in France, as uder the present act she cannot do so. And that men who enlisted voluntarily be granted land before conscripts and that time spent overseas be taken off time to prove up a homestead. Also that. the government hold the Blood reserve for men who have done their nit in Prance instead of selling it:to capitalists. These requests contained in a resolution passed by the local Next of Kin Association are perfectly reasonable and should be granted. In our Judgment length of service and sacrifice made through service should bo first considerations in al-lotlng land to soldiers under the Land Settlement Act. Preferential treatment ought not to be denied the long service men and the men who have made genuine sacrifices. The Lend, Settlement Commission has power to fix regulations for the administration of the act and it should not have any hesitation meeting the views express-f d in this resolution. BRITAIN'S RECORD IS A GOOD ONE It is gratifying to read the statement of Bouar Law that the total stocks of wheat in xirltain at the end ot December exceeded those at the end of December, 1916, by S,400,000 bushels at sixty pounds to the bushel. The Toronto Globe thinks that the figures given are just enough to create a demand for more information, and do not give ground for optimism, while the total amount of wheat on hand is not known. That there is an increase over the previous year is excellent news, however-the more pleasing because of the assurance that Britain's own food production is increasing. It comes with another very encouraging statement, namely, that *Mr. Hoover, the United States Food Controller, was much below the mark in his estimate that there is 150,000,000 pounds of frozen meat more than British representatives in the United States had es. timated upon as available for export. It now appears that there are some thousands of tons above even the Hoover figures, and credit for this Heatless Mondays are at an end in the states so far as Federal authorities are concerned. Individual states may retain them if local fuel controllers desire. The, wool output of the United States is sufficient, only to provide one suit per Inhabitant every four years, according to the Ohio Retail Clothiors' Association. The Salvation Army is protesting against the decision Of the New York not to ex- Thc bulk of the hotels and bath-ins houses at Long Heach. are to be taken over by the United States aviation corp.-;. The Brotherhood of American Locomotive Engineers has beeu asked to furnish 50 men for service on U.S. "tanks." A fifty million dollar housing bill to provide accommodation for shipyard workers, has been passed by t'. S. congress. The Vancouver Sun mentions R. S. Lennie, of Vancouver, formerly of Nelson, as a probable new Conservative leader in B.C. War Saving Stamps to a total of $50,000,000 have already been 3old across the border, and the daily sales average Is climbing steadily toward the $5,000,000 mark.

Can Reach Petrograd Germany's ultimate objective, of course, cun only bo speculated upon, out, according to the correspondent, there is nothing whatever to prevent from them reaching Petrograd if they wish, for the demoralization of the Russian soldiers is so complete that orders to resist the tuvusiou would be Impossible of execution. Moreover, the enemy could easily reduce the capital to famine, which already is closing its grip on tho people. People Apathetic Tho Petrograd correspondent ot the Daily Mail describes tho attitude of the peoplo as mostly one of apathy and fatalism. He says that a majority would welcome tho arrival of the Germans in the hope that they would restore order, the feeling being that anything is better than the present condition. Rust. Navy Disorganized London, Feb. �2.-Disorganization in tho Russian navy has reached an extreme point and there is no likelihood of any order being obeyed, according to an Exchange Telegraph dispatch from Petrograd. The naval {authorities at Roval report that In order to save the Russian navy from the hands of the GeVmans it will be necessary to*.remove the ships at Reval and Helsingfors to Kronstadt. This, however, is believed to be impossible owing to their disuse. Up to this time, only'' submarines been removed from these ports. Huns Make Peace Offer Amsterdam, Feb. 21.-A Berlin dispatch states that the Russian written confirmation of the acceptance of peace terms has passed the German lines. This disposes of rumors of the fall of the Lenine-Trotzlcy government. Appeal to Worktngmen Loudon, Feb. 22,-In a proclamation announcing that*they had agreed to sign the German.*peace terms, tho people's commissaries declare they are firmly convinced that tho German working classes will not permit the Russian revolution to be crushed by tho militarists. Appeal Is madc to local committees' to increase efforts to reorganize tho Russian army. Germans Won't Reply London, Feb. 2:!.-Although the dele, gntes sent by the Russian commissioners to luforrn the Germans officially of Russia's capitulation departed for Dvinsk on ^Wednesday, no news has beeu received from them, says an announcement made by tho commissioners, as forwarded in u Renter dispatch from Petrograd. The announcement adds: "It seems that the German government. Is putting off Its reply and evidently is refusing peace and Is carrying out the wishes of the capitalists of all countries,." l * FRUIT RAILWAY HEADS MEET BOARD TRADE DELEGATES Keep* the World Refreshed and Healthy The Delightful Tonic Aperient Discuss Freight Classification And The Heavier Loading of Cars Calgary, Feb. 21.-A conference between representatives of the three Canadian railways and boards of trade of tho four western provinces was held here yesterday to discuss the proposed freight classification No. 17. i The railways also desired the co-have I �Peration �f tnQ hoard of trade in formulating rules looking toward heavier loading of cars, which are when the terms contained In classification 16 wore formulated and iu this manner, by the use of fewer cars, render additional equipment more promptly available for tho transportation of the product of the west that moves in greatest volume, such as grain, coal, forest products and food and supplies Tor domestic consumption and export to the allies.

Now that 4 DIRECTORS SHOULQ BE VERY CAREFUL A recent trust company failure in Toronto revealed the fact that one of the directors, the speaker of the Ontario legislature, had attended only a few directors meetings. He really had taken no Interest In the company's affairs, though his name as director may have induced people to place confidence in the company. Negligence of that character cannot be excused. A man who consents to be a director of a company with whom the public invests or deposits Its savings, has assumed a responsibility and he should meet it by giving the affairs of tho company serious attention. There is a tendency to place prominent men on directorates for the mere purpose of-using their names as a business getter. There is no defense for such a prac3 tlce. The man who allows his name to be used is largely to blame. No man should become a director of a company until he Is satisfied of its stable character and when he becomes a director he should take a real interest in its affairs. the shipping is beginning to move there still remains the problem of get-tins; enough vessels to carry food supplies to the Allied people and to the United States' and Allied armies. In this connection Mr. Bonar Law's statement in the House of Commons yesterday regarding shipping is of interest. During 1917 Britain huilt 1,183,473 tons of mercantile shipping, and as-quired 170,000 tons abroad. Expectations of a larger addition in new tonnage were not realized because quantities of it that were to have beeu built in the United States for the old country have been taken over by the Americans for their own use. The shipbuilding program to be carried out in the United States, In Canada and elsewhere this year will add immensely to'the total tonnage of the Allies before the end of 1918. Mr. Law also made the important announcement that 820,645 men were added to the army last year; that British guns in France had been increased by 30 per cent., and the airplane supply by two and a half times. Despite all the critics, Britain seems to be bending all her energies to the business of war. 1C years and under must not be on the!?11 Company whose headquarters are streets at night unless under proper;1?

That the estimated business of British Columbia, including the ships actually contracted for, represented during the year just passed, $217,000,000 was the statement of J. A. Cunning-, ham, retiring president of the British j Columbia Manufacturers' association,' at the annual meeting. A New York dispatch to the Montreal Star says: "Frank H.
