Forrester, manager'of .the Standard Trusts Co. 'It is apparent this company is In a hopelessly insolvent condition, and further that it "is dishonestly insolvent. A more rotten case was never brought into court This concern was obviously designed to B:windle. thede people who put their savings, into it-There should be a law reaching this class of company. It is a swindle from beginning to end," said the Chief Justice. "It is a crime of the meanest kind," said Joseph Martin, ICC, who appeared in the case on behalf of the petitioning contract-holders. "It '.has been preying on the poorest classes of the community, on people who could only save the fS.OO per month to buy these contractsf The reports of the auditors of the C.H.I.C. sboweO that n, Wa\ of $105,-000 out of 1140.000 had disappeared because it had been put to wrongful uses by the company. Mr. Martin added: "The directors had to make a payment of $2.5.000 to 'enable them to do business in the pro\ince Cf Nova Scotfa. They had only $21,600 capital to start with, and this had been lost -so they decided' to steal the $2.5,000 from the contract-holders' fund. That deposit should- have been paid out of capital,.not with the contract-holders' trust money." mm wanted Sheep 2000 Breeding Bwes. Cattle 1 car Yearling Heifers.

TELEPHONE NO. 322 ; Ottawa, Jan. 6.-^Thete is probably no.better index of business conditions tbdn the figures of postal revenue. That business conditions are improving is shown by the revenue figures for the month of December. The stamp sales for the month were the largest in the history of the department, being $60,000 higher than last year, the previous high water mark, while they are really three times as large as the figures of a decade ago. The revenue for the month was $1,720-492 as against. $1,661,999 for Dec; 1913, and $1,639,560 in December i9l3i The revenues for: three months showed a slight decrease, but with December's increase the showr ing for the nine months ot the'fiscal year is. a-favorable one. For the 12 lilbnths it is/expected that, there will be a substantial increase over last , year. For the nine months ending December 31, 1914, the revenue was � $11,189,780 while for the same per-, iod of a year ago the revenues were $11,123,-705, an increase of $66,075. Ten years.ago for the same period the. revenue was hut $4,473,600, an increase this vear of $6,700,000. - CITY AND DISTRICT Telephone Subscribers Granted Time An extension of time for the payment of the six months dues on telephones has been granted local subscribers.

CONTINUED PROM FRONT PAGE On last year's assessment of $17.-000,000, the rate this year on tiie above basis, which includes school es-timatep, based on last year's expenditure, would be in ilie neighborhood of 28 mills. But the citizens' committee is looked to'reduce the estimates still further, and it is expected that the School Board will ask.for much less this-year than they did last. -So the present indications are that, if the assessment is left as it is now, the! 1915 tax rate will be considerably be-' low thai; of'1914. , ' The $1,000 for a city band was added to the estimates, the commissioners preferred to leave this question with the committee.
