"The most sati-sfactory trip 1 ever ; had to the pnivliiciaf- Kovornment," ' said Mayor Tlardif'. "The mask order is being generally observedjn bodi Calgiii-y and Kdinnn-ton," said the mayor, "uiid it is being strictly enforced on tlie trains. I'lvery- ' body is wearing tliem. I wore four while I was away. The epidemic seems to be more serious in the uor-lliorn cities, but.it may because tliey appear to be talcing it more seriously. Amendments to Charter The amendments to the city charter which the mayor and commis.sloDcr were seeking were relative to tax collection. Wboa these amendments are passed it will be possible, as il is now po.ssible in Calgary, tor the city to make the offer to tax payers to pay all their current taxes with a percentage of their arrears, in return for which the guarantee is made that their properties will not be taken into the next current tax sale. This il is believed, will be an inducement to people to pay up their current taxes. It is proposed by .Ifayor Uardle that Vi per cent, of the arrears be accepted. This means that the payment ot arrears will be spread over 10 years. It -is the payment of current taxes that is most urgent, as arrangements have been made, naturally, for the carrying of arrears. "I have all along advocated that city councils have not enough liome rule, in matters such as this," commented Mayor Hardie. "Why it sliould be ne-ccssary for us to run to a provincial government every time we need a regulation regarding the collection of taxes, 1 never could understand. The matter of tax collection should be regulated by bylaw according to the needs of each particular city. : > * '> > GRADE VIII QUESTIONS : : ? : : : : : ? : ? History t.

Under these circumstances the power and ability of the Vancouver press to reach the public is tested. In The Sun yesterday there was published an interview witii Mr. W. H. Malkln, chairman ot the Victory Loan for 1918 in the province ot IBritish Columbia. This interview showed the spirit of cheer and victory that animates iho wdiole organization. It was a refreshing revelation ot hope and determination in spite of all local conditions. /*;}d many letters were le-ceived at the Victory Loan headquarters commenting lipon .Mr, Malkin'.s advice to the people wlio are looking (owards the great drive. One is published hero, written lo Mr. Malkin by Mr. Lund, who resides in Lethbridge, it brei.thes a spirit of optimism and confidence and courage. H^re is hia message : "Mr. W. H. Malkin. 'Chairman Victory Loan. "It is gratifying to observe your campaign announcement in the Vancouver Daily Sun, 1 wonder if you are aware ot tho benefit that will accrue to the people of the province- the general tone of your- announcement'.' It means dealh to 'Mr, Flu' and life to the people of this province -and the allied cause. Suppose we could say with authority that this 'flu' business was only a state of mind caused by the mental tension that the people are held in owing to the war, and that the mental disturbance has been traced and found beyond doubt to have been started by German-agents^soniewhere at some seaport in Europe, say Spain, foi- the purpose of spreading mental contagion among the allied arniieg and peoples and tliat this is an epidemic of fear, handed to us through the usual channels from which German propaganda is circulated. "How many Canadians do you suppose would have influenza if thoy knew the truth'? "Would they not immediately deny it-figlit it-get out of bed and repii-diate if? "God's great out-of-doors In Vancouver is pure. We are told somewhere 'Have no thought for the body it is the spirit that quickeneth!' "Fear is the bug-bear ot life. If wo knew the truth we would be tree to fight; to produce and lo buy Victory Bonds," . ON CONFIDENTIAL MISSION Vancouver, Oct. 26.-Sir Arthur Harris, dli.J-^torgoneral for Canada, ot the British ministry of shipijinE, accompanied by l,.ady Harris, arrived in th.i city this morning from Moiit-i;;i'oal.
