That's what Canadians must do now, or go bankrupt in the future. It is flood-tide with the money-atream now; but the drought may come. The patriotic man will figure out, not only what his income will be this year, but what it may be year after next, then live within the margin. He must think -thrift and practise thrift if he ic to know content; and if Canada is to be secure. He must save to save himself and his country. [The progress DFiTHE war President Wilson has replied to the German peace offer in the only satisfactory manner. The Huns have been toasting that their front was still on enemy soil, and the U. B. president flag answered that there can, be no taBr of peace while such is the case. flean while the British, -French and .erlcans on the west front have answered the peace offer of the central powers in an even more effectual way. .With a smash which commenced dur-. jngra pouring rain at 2.30 o'clock on Tuesday morning the British and Americans broke through the last defenses .of the Hindenburg line Between Cambrai and St. Quentin, and advanced Itour miles, with the result that today the most important base of Cam-krai is in the hands of the British while the Hun armies at this point ' are hroken and staggering hack. St. Quentin is likely to fall at any hour, and Laon, the other pivot of the German, line, on the west, threatened from north and east is sure to go. A precipitate German withdrawal to a line n,;the Meuse is an almost certain re-�ult of Tuesday's operations. For Beveral days now the British fend Americans standing on the Hin-�l�jiburg line on the Cainbrai front tiave been battling desperately hut urely, forging ahead here and there through the main defences, with the t$|ult that on Tuesday morning it was possible to filter shock troops through the line for a smash. Preceded by 4 terrific barrage they advanced and �6qn reached open ground. An advance of four miles was registered during the day. This success appears to he just aa important in comparison s�;>was the allied thrust on the Mace-.i Ionian front which put the Bulgarians, out of business and made them sue lor an unconditional peace. The-capture of Beirut has led to the Turkish governor of Smyrna sending plenipotentiaries to sue for peace. tfNE REA80N FOR THB PROTEST Some people may wonder why the Canadian newspapers are making such a. howl over the increased price in newsprint." One reason is that the price fixed la. the United States, where -news-print; is 'largely imported from Canada, As i$62 per ton, ?7 a ton lower than the price fixedMn Canada. It is also' conceded that it costs $5 a tjon mere to-manufacture paper in the United States -than in Canada. UJJCLE SAM'S NEW INCOME TAX The'United States' is not sparing in its new: income tax. Canada is taking a very easy course compared with the Republic. : . j. . . The riein? -Xf-. S. Income tax strikes" squarely at wealth, strikes so severely that The' New York Journal of Commerce said that the schedules of rate advances "have not gone very tat before they approach partial con- should not confer with murderers. " Nothing will do Germany any permanent good, except to keep on pounding her until she is completely ready to turn out her criminal rulers and turn over an entirely new leaf. One of the great objections to a conference is that it would involve polite communication with the abominable scoundrels who brought on the war and have conducted it In such a way as to' constrain even the bad angels to avert their faces. To confer with these creatures would be, in a measure, to readmit them into the society of decent people. They ought not to be "readmitted; no, never.' The German people will, of course, in time, produce new representatives with whom it will be possible to confer, but the hands that cut the Belgian throat and sacked the cities of northern France ought never again to be shaken, even with the coldest formality, by self-respecting people.-Life. fiseation." Next year the man whose income is $5,000,000-and there are many such in the United States-can keep only less than $1,500,000 of it for himself. His income tax amounts to $3,527,095. Next year President Wilson, out of_his $75,000 salary, will have to turn hack 524,535 into 'the United States Treasury. Meantime the income, tax exemption remains,at 11,000 for the'bachelor and $2,000 for the married man. '.^Canadian incomes are really, getting off too easily, especially the larger incomes. .'Parliament should see that the tax is.raised and that weal tit is properly reached. prohibition and crime "Has prohibition brought about a decrease in crime?" was a question' asked *of Sir Hugh John Macdouald, police-magistrate at Winnipeg. "Undoubtedly. r There has been a most':~noticeable. decrease in petty crimes" such as' assault, particularly; among the foreign elements Where 3 would1 have had-to deal with three or. four^such cases a day, since prohibition '-ffas enforced there are hardly this tfumber a month. I was speaking to avpublle man recently who I know, voted' against prohibition, his great contention "being- that" it- interfered? jwlth-a ~man's personal liberty. This man is a large employer of foreign"" labor,- and he informed me that now the men are unable to obtain intoxicating, drink the women are able to to stay at liome and keep house and lookiaftet.their-children, whereas before; they.-Jia'd to go out to worlf in order .tosupport the home as the largest part :of the "husbanl's wages were expended in the saloon. Another thing he fpund^was that the small .shopkeep-, ers had? little difficulty or none in.securing payment of their credit accounts.. The inan to whom 1 refer is now firmly convinced that prohibition is the right 3&nd best thing for the country." DID SPIES CAUSE BIG EXPLOSION? U. S.

OF L Machinery Is Simple and Efficient If Councils ..Arte Self -Reliant.-' - Ottawa, Oct. S.-Hon. T. W. Croth-ers. when asked today if;he had: noticed criticism in the press recently of the recent order-in-council respecting necessaries of life and the cost of living, said that he had, "I have the hope." said the minister, "that a full and careful consideration of the order by-municipal councils throughout the country will convince them that it has direct, simple, practicable and inexpensive means of removing, to a large extent: alt reasonable ground of'complaint and also that it would be impracticable for the federal government to investigate all local complaints which would come to it from thousands of points, extending from Sydney to Victoria." "There was a time, I think," said the minister, "when local government and self-reliance were more highly appreciated than at - present." After referring' to the terms of the order-in-council providing for the disposition ;of;,nfip^sar.iea^p�Jife_aLf air. and reasonable prices and the powers of investigation given to the" municipalities, the minister pointed out that in pursuing the investigations the municipalities would not be confined* to evidence obtainable witliia"the municipalities. He added that "the -Jnunl-cipalities. would; not require, before prosecution, the consent of the'attorney-general or of anyone else. Referring to recent complaints in the newspapers regarding, the price of wood, the minister stated that the facts could be ascertained in a few hours and the publication '" of 'them alone would do mucTT to "remedy the condition complained of.v Ae few prosecutions under the order would probably prove _a complete remedy. SHOULD BROADEN ' OUR VISION An American citizen who has lived is this province for some time remarked to the editor of The Sun the other ( day that there was an apparent lack j of a strong "national spirit", in Can-1 ada. He said that he noticed in talking to Canadians that they seemed to be sectional in their views. A man from Ontario talked of Ontario, thought of Ontario, and not of Canada, and the same thing is noticeable in the people from the other provinces. It is only too- true that his impressions are right.* There is no outstanding national spirit in Canada. New citizens coming to our land from other countries live here for a long ' time before they learn anything about any other part of,Canada. There Is nothing to' make the new comer-a Canadian. True, !!the schools today a�e trying to overcome this by teaching something about Canada, and it will have its effect in due time, but-what of the older people who come here and do not attend; our schools'? Something should be done to make them more enthusiastic Canadians. The above from the Carmangay Sob, is very much to the point. It is alF too true. " Many people would imagine that" some of our provinces were not a: part of Canada to hear them talk about one province entirely and minimise / other provinces. A reader of the Toronto Telegram would imagine that the British Empire, Canada and the worid for that matter was Toronto. -Canada will'never be a great nation and there will never be a strong national sentiment amongst our people, until we all extend our vision and talk and think as Canadians and not as provfncialists> Cabinet Meeting Today to "Decide Method of Collecting from Company. Ottawa, Oct. 8.-The/cabinet council met in special session this morning to consider regulations governing the collection by the government of the income tax imposed upon tjie^Can-adian Pacific railway several .months ago when the iricrea?e"iii freight'fates of approximately 15"per cent, "was/authorized by the government. -: ,i. . E. W. Beatty, general counsel* ^or the Canadian Pacific was in attendance on behalf of the company, 'iit is understood that the proposed reguia-'tions were approve-j. It will be recalled that one of the grounds of opposition to an increase in freight rates was that the Canadian Pacific railway was in no need of the increased revenue which would arise. An order-in-council was, as a consequence, passed providing for the the form of taxes to the government of the greater portion of whatever betterment the Canadian Pacific railway revenues might show as a result of the general increase. It was estimated at'the time that the Canadian..Pa-cific railway taxation would put "several million dollars Into' the public" treasury. �/� vSave for Victory!
