PICKED UP IN FOR BUSY MAN A itra A CONTRADICTION OF .THE DUTY ARGUMENT An interesting commentary, upon the istratora i government's increase in duties .on left alone apples last session is contained In the coalition report of the Canadian- trade commis- sioner in Liverpool, just issued in The Trade and Commerce Weekly at Otta wa. The increased duty on apples was justified frankly by th'e government lasi session on tlie' ground that it ivould supply Ions-needed; protection to a struggling British. Columbia in- dustry.

In a statement issued to the Cana- dian public this week by Sir Thomas White, minister of finance, he said: -It is clear that the ultimate suc- cess ot the Allies will depend not only on their armies and armaments but upon the mobilization and con- servation of their superior re- sources which have made possible these armies and armaments. The Germans are fighting a battle of desperation and a prolonged con- flict with all the power of the Allies may be necessary to accomplish their overthrow. "It is more than ever necessary for the Canadian people to save their money for the support of the Bo- minion's war expenditures and for the purpose ot assisting the British Government in financing, in Can- ada, purchases made in Canada of munitions and other supplies. This appears to me to be a national dull, not even second in importance to the dutv of recruiting and sending forward men. The military effort must be measured by the financial and in this fact lies the greatest as- surance of the success of the Allies provided that their unquestionably superior financial strength can be fully brought to bear.
