The mayor is well .satisfied with the result of the conference and file next session of the legislature will see lobulation of the utmost importance to the cities considered. Mayor Ilardic Huggestod to tlie premier the suspension of the sinking funds of the cities of the province for five years art the one bent available method of helping them over the rough xpohs. This wn.s generally acceptable, but; there Is some doubt as to whether such a provision could be made without an amendment to the British North America Act. However, if this 1h impossible, some arrangements might, be made to spread the payments to the sinking fund over no years, Most of the debentures issued by the rears, Edmonton now has this plan in operation, and Lethbrldgo will ask fur a charter amendment making it. permissible here. On the question of the enforcement of Die payment of fax arrears, Mayor Ilardio states that legislation will be brought down this session to apply to all the cities of the province. It is Premier Stewart's idea that taxes of mi" which are unpaid by July 1st, 1018, should he put up for tax Hale immediately, and it. is likely that Ilie new act will provide for such enforcement. Mayor Hardle will be satisfied if such action is taken, placing all eir- \ ies In Iho same position. Calgary is .satisfied also, with the understanding that tax certificates may be Issued as an alternative. , If a tax sale Ib held in Lethbridge next July, as will likely be the case if the proposed act la placed on the stature books, it will result In a large acreage of subdlviHon land being dumped back on the city's hands.

By giving them at) years to pay it would cut. the annual payments into the fund in two. In Lethbridge this would result in a reduction of about five mills on the taxes, as the present annual payment to the sinking fund amounts to about $100,000. It' this plan were followed, it can he Keen of course that at the date of maturity of the debentures there would not be enough money in tiie. fund to retire them. But this could be overcome by issuing- bonds to cover the difference, and . in most cases these would bo accepted by the holders of the original debentures. reduced. Hut the mayor points out tlrat this reduction in assessment will be offset by the lower taxes which will prevail if the now arrangement can be made with regard to the sinking fund payments. The mayor states also that the premier intimated that arrangement h might be made whereby the cities of the province will receive half the police court fines, and as the enforcement of the liquor act may be put under the direction of the police forces of the cities this would amount to a considerable sum.

Five hundred men are now being employed in the mill and woods surrounding Foleyet, the centre of C.N.R. activities in the Clay Belt. There are being taken out 20,000 cords of pulp- ] pected. This is mainly due to the fact that a high percentage of prospectors onUsted in the army and those remaining await definite information through the geological maps now being prepared by the Mines Branch.at Ottawa. Some of these are now available covering last year's work, and it is expected that this winter there will be prepared all maps covering the ground traversed by the different parties during 1917. All these maps, accordingly, will be available for prospectors in tiie spring, and it' is expect-wood this vear, but/the objective is \ed that explorers and prospectors left 100,000 cords for 12 months' work, and M11 Northern Ontario will inspect close- London, Jan. It.-Winston Spencer Churchill, British minister of munitions, addressing the American Luncheon club today, made a powerful appeal for the sending of American soldiers to lCurope quickly and in as large numbeis as possible. Mr. Churchill Raid that England had sufficient reserve material to fujly equip several hundred thousand Americans when they landed in Europe. He advocated that shipping should be devoted to bringing men and finished or half finished products rather than bulky raw materials. Mr. Churchill said England had guns, men and fuses waiting for shells. Preparations were under way, he added, to moet the German hordes coming from the east. ; Although he had no doubt of victory. Mr. Churchill declared the coining year would be the hardest of the war. this, it is expected, will be attained within the next, five years. Of railway ties 400,000 have been cut, and it is anticipated; that in two or three years, one million per year will be produced.* Scarcity of labor is the limiting factor in the development. The objective is to bring in as many men as possible who, while earning excellent wages in the mill or woods will gain an adequate idea of the splendid possibilities of the country and take up farms adjoining the railway line. -Many intending settlers are already on the ground awaiting the opening of districts, but as yet no land has settlers produce on the farms, been thrown open to settlement either by the Ontario government or by the C.N.R. However, the operations of the railway company in "logging" its township at Foleyet, are getting out the pulpwood and tie timber and re-' moving the forest, growth. Wagon roads cut to a width of 40 feet along the concession line, and side lines of a township make available ten miles of road directly into the townsHe at Foleyet. Other roads are projected for next season in connection with the development of pulp-wood and tio logging. Tine survey of townships adjacent to the C.N.R. line provides for a trunk highway along Die railway throughout the entire length of the arable section, 100 miles or more. Immediately north of Capreol in the ly this section of the country served by the lines of the Canadian Northern Railway. The mineral range formations are identical to those at Porcupine, and of Cobalt.
