That is a record that should earn for tlie force the right to go overseas as a unit Some dajrs ago the Herald suggested to the city commissioners that the ratepayers w'ould like an official report on the condition of the sewage disposal plant.

Canadians think that the food control programme being Instituted In this country is fairly drastic, considering the fact that we produce such.a large exportable surplus. But we haven't even touched the tringe of real food economy as they know it in Britain. There the rationing system Is now In effectj and, as giving some Mnt of what it means, we quote below from a London letter by CA.H.: The rationing scheme has been a blow to the restaurants, as a card would only entitle the holder to four meat meals a week, but they have jllecovered wonderful dishes composed wholly of vegetables, which are becoming quite popular. Profiteering however, has crept in to some extent as, for Instance, some restaurant!; in the west, end have been charging as high as Ts. Cd. for a meatless meal, ilut this non&enso will soon be iiti-poaslblo,. as they have a knack It is hardly likely that the C.P.R. win' grant the hoary request of the Lethbrldge Board of Trade for daylight service on the Crow. Not that the service Isn't needed and badly enough 'Vanted, for it is, but the transportation situation is against the granting of the request However the C.P.R. could make itself the benefactor of the travelling public it It would do sometlilng in the way of a sleeper service along the line similar .to that In effect between Lethbrldge and Calgary. Then business men wouldn't shy from a trip up the Pass as they would from a pest-house. BUDGET IN HISTORY A. K. MacLean in Absence of Finance Minister, Presents New Proposals protecting the people aguiust such praotlces. ' The unrationed articles, such as fish and eggs, naturally took big jumps in price, but these things are to })0 expected until the scheme gets ' ruuiilug smcathly. Ono result of tho rationing scheme hafi been the complete elimination of waste. It Is a crime, piinishable by Uaayy fine, to waste-even an ounce of 'feread; -and where formerly the du9t-j�lna were filled with stale bread siiph a thing now is unheard of. Kach (antUy procures exactly what it can consume, �nU no juore, it Is to bo expected, however,- turA tlJe' scheme . will bei enlarged to take in other articles as the necaaslty ai'lses. Tho blggeat draw-back should this happen win bo that Aone will he compelled -to curry about aa awful wnd ?t cards, leach article having ^ separ-ato card. Ottawa, April 3j).-To Hon. A. K. MacLean, acting'minister of finance, this afternoon fell the task of presenting to parliament one of tho most important budgets since confederation. , The steadily growing financial obilga-of I tions of the Dominion, due to tho war, made necessary the announcement of a number of Increases in exlRtlng taxation, as well as new taxation proposals. Mr. .MacLean's statoroent, which was made to a crowded house ,and in the iiresoncfl of a full gallery, attracted more than ordinary interest. The minisUir's proposfals Included a renewal and extension Of the business profits war tax, an increase in the lii-cooie tax, an increaso in the. excise duties payable on mani^iclured tobacco,, a duty o� ten cents per pound on tea, which has been free, with a similar exolso tax on tea in store, in order that holders of the article will Iip.vo no advantage; ehangos in the dutlc-s upon cof/ee and chicory, in order lo -ijlacc 'thc3 taxation'uijon these articles upon a parity with tho taxation upon toii; nn iuoreuse in the special war \i\x rateH on Bleeping car lierths anrl parlor car seats, excise taxes on mutclies and playing cards, a Bpecific duty of la tho caao of a person travelling five centa per lineal foot upon moving lion mark in 191S. The increase, he said, is attributable to war conditions. Last year our exports to Great Britain were about $GSO,000,uuO, while our Imports- amounted to about ^81,000,000. Our exports to the United States reached $4-10,000,000 while our imports" amounted to $790,000,000. Immigration :\rr. MacLoan informed th'^ 'louso that in the past three years immigr.i"-tion had reached a total of 20.^,985 despite the war. Of this total number, 169.G40 came from the Uiiited Slates and 20,124 from the British Isles, An important factor in connection w-ith this iiiimigration is is .vi lai'gely composed of experienced farmers. . ' .-. Referring to the question of exchange, Jlr. MacLean said that this had become an acute prbblem In Canada. The high rate Which has prevailed on remittances of funds to tho United States has MmpOsed a severe tax upon Importers and the public, and It it continues, must diminish imports or add to their cost. , Were -we able to sell securities In the United States the rate of .exchange might have been adjusted or normalized, but Canadians were not permitted to do so. The government did not require, during the-^eaent year, to borrow in the United States even if it were permitted to do ao,:,and,Qon8e-quently by such an operation It was not convenient or practical to correct the exchange situation. Lessen .Import* fpom U. 8. "To redress the adverse rate of exchange with the United Statea,'" said Mr. MacLean. "we must lessen our imports from the country or tho-United States must buy mora from us, or wo must sell securities across the border to the extent of a very substantial proportion of our .adverse trade balance. The government has been' very diligent In Its endeavors to bring about such financial arrangementa4wlth the governments of Gi-eat Brltalti and the United States as would materially re Hove our people of the tiurden of the present high rates of exchange. I hope that very shortly wo shall be In a position to announce the successful' conclusion of negotiations which have In view this end. In'Connection .with, tho cxcliange_ problem It might bo of' Interest to state tliat.for tho first three months of this calendar year our imports from the IJnJted States have do-ofeasod belo'w that of the corresponding period oflast year by over fSti.OOO,-POO; while our exports have increased in the same compjii'atlve period by about ?20,000,000." - .., ^ Victory; toiti , ' After dealing at lepgth with the Victory Loan-and trad?'
