Canada's Achievement In Shipbuilding A Marvel Patd-np Capitol I �, Keienre Fund . 11,000,000 ItMourcM . . * Ut,000,000 THE BANK* OF NOVA SCOTIA w, a KING Min�f�r Lethbridge Branch ITA (By W. G. Gates.) Toronto, Oct. 31.-*0anada's remarkable* Industrial activity since the outbreak of the war may bo attributed mainly to tbrco things: tho urgent demand for products to supply tho fighting forces of t,ho allies; tho aggressiveness of Canadians in getting tmsinesti; and to tho ftfnanclng of this great effort by tho Canadian peoplo themselves. Of theso the third ia as important as any. For if Canada had t>ecn unable to grant credits to certain of tho allied governments for tho products they needed, all tho aggressiveness exhibited by native business taiont in drumming up orders would have gone largely for naught. (When Canada smote the rock of her savings and her credit), and thus drew forth tho hundreds of millions that have been .subscribed to her war loans, she solved the problem of making tho wheels of her industries hum during war time, Just as truly as Moses' solved tho children of Israel's wator scarcity problem by thinks it will misses his guess. Canada has ordered enough steel plates to keep her steel shipyards busy turning out ships at the rate of 200,000 tons a year for four yours, and tho delivery of. these plates will not begin before the fall of 1310. AH Canada now knows that $30,-000,000 worth of airplanes have been produced In one factory in this country during tho last eighteen months; and, in addition to this, tho Curtis company has a plant in one of the eastern cities. Will this work ccbbo abruptly after the war. By no moans, tho world being only on the threshold of aerial activity. In a certain eastern community the Imperial Munitions Board operates a plant called British Forging^ tho ground for which was only broken 21 months ago, hut which haa already produced J!f,000,000 worth of forglngs for shells, and which, in addition, pays nearly $.190,000 a month in wages. This plant, which now employs *j;>00 men, really had its origin in tho doci- smiting the rock in tho wilderness. I "J""' 3f^L'l\or!fm 1 This should bo thoroughly realized \8ion t0 niolt (lown ' hoU'^"P turning* and borne in mind, for, undoubtedly by this method, many of Canada's future development problems will have to be solved. VAST METAL PROJECT FOR EMPIRE TRADE Former Deputy Governor of Hudson'a Bay Co, Head� $2&,000,000 Concern. London.- Canadian Interest In the thsi. m�vv project for th�> development; of empire trade in nonferros metals Is indicated by tho Intimation In tho Times that the chairman of tho new llritlsh Metals Company will probably be charlcs Vincent Sate, who. as deputy governor of the Hudson's Cay Company. Is most intimately connected with Canadian Industrial affairs. Tho capital of tho new institution will probably bo $25,000,000. of which nearly $,10,000,000 has already boon subscribed. Tho discovery that Canada can Tin-anco her own operations is, for several reasons, clear gain. For" one thing it has dispelled thenoUonthatlndustrlal progress depends entirely on legislation That Canadian .manufacturers, farm-era, lumbermen, miners, merchants and othors, who go to make up tho general army of industry in this country, have been extremely busy during tho last few years is not duo to tho fact that Parliament, or the Government, has done some wonderful thing. The explanation is that certain coun-" tries needed certain products; enterprising Canadians want after the business, white tho great mass of the people Behind them have, by lending the Oovornmont several hundreds of millions, havo supplied the capital to finance these huge industrial operations. Hear in mind also that the peoplo have done thin acting on what has been sound advice, they havo put up the money. Eight hundred and twenty people subscribed to the lf>17 Victory Loan. Indeed the small investors subscribed about one-half the money. Today the Minister of Finance is counting on them n groat, deal more for tho second Victory Loan than he did for tho first. He wants l.onn.Ooft subscribers which, of course, means that tho extra ISO.OOO over last year's It has the war support of the Hrit ,.........

Tho banks declare that they cannot advance all the money that Is needed, and they h'/ve verV frankly said to Sir Thomas Winds "You will havo to go to the peophj." What is the appeal based on? Patriotism and sound business. No doubt some people wonder how it U\ that so many American war orders are coming to Canada. Is It because of a desire on the part of our cousins to help us out? The 1'nlied States (lovernmont has manifested a ready inclination to co-operate* with Canada which is greatly appreciated; \ntt something more than philanthropy explains its action in awarding contracts o Canadian firms. It is becuse Canadian plants can produce, even faster than American ones can, cer in steel bullets for other shells. Today It ia said to bo the largest, ot its kind in tho world, and could, with very little readjustment, he set. at. work making steel billets for ship plMcs or steel rails. Nor-does one need to bo endowed with the spirit of prophecy to predict, that something of tin's nature will happen. It may bo asked, where will the nf- I ter-thC'War demand, neconsary to keep j theso new big plants going, come i from? For one thing the work of re- j building devastated Europe will make ; heavy demands on the Industrie:', of : America.

Achievement In Shipbuilding Shipbuilding hffords a splendid ex ample of what has been done. A good many years ago tho building of wooden ships was an important Indus try in the Martimc Provinces, as much as 45,000 tons of new shipping having been produced In a year. But with tho incoming of the steel ships generally tho Industry rapidly declined, so much a that In 1900 the new tonnage built was only 16,200 tons. With th* outbreak of war there was naturally president of the agricultural society, and president of tho Hotary Club. Ho hold a seat in the Winnipeg Ctuin Kxchange and had a wido ac- quainianca among Western financial men. The Brantford firemen will ask for a war bonus similar to that granted a nhort Hme Ago to tbo police. chairman of/.he school board, ex-1 heavy demand for ijqw ships and tho ' " ' Marlttmo Province shipyards became busy, for tho "wooden." ship again camo Into Its own. But It was not until tho Imporlal -Munitions Board undertook to placo contracts for vessels 1 that tho shipbuilding Industry* from tho Atlantic to the Pacific began to mako tho strides that has distinguished It during the last two yearn. Following the Board the Dominion Government launched a program, which will probably keep tho shipyards of the Dominion busy for somo years, even should peace come at once. What has Canada done In shipbuilding? Well, the resBols launched, or that wjll bo launched, this year represent probably 440,000 tons of shipping, which Is equal to one-third of ail tho merchant shipping turned out In the shipyards of tho United Kingdom in 1917, ' Tho shipping turned out by the Imperial Munitions Board, and to be delivered this year, alono amounts to 318,000 tons, and be It remembered that an advance of $10,000,000 from tho Dominion Government enabled the Imperial Munitions -Board to give Its-flrat orders for ships. On the Puciflo Coast tbo men In tho shipyards are ua busy an boos; but it was not until two years ago, until tho Hoard began placing orders for ships, {hat. UrUlsh Columbia began to build lo anything like the extent she In doing today. This shipbuilding activity will not cease with the war.
