SCHEME The reason for raising the price of gas by refusing to allow the monthly discount is apparent The gas company Traited until the public had gone to the eipense of installing serrices and then put the price to .thirty-five, cents. The thirty cent rate -.vas allowed to operate until all th5 possible gas users were landed in tha net, and then the increase ras made. These tsctics may ticlsls the fancy o? the gas company but they are liabio to be frowning pretty soon, they find tho users gas drop- plug o3 very, largely in Calgary anil LetSbridge. Tha .company has at- tempted to convey the idea that the system was being operated at a loss, but examination of the books of the company by independent persons shows that vthe company lias made a profit after loading 'up the. balance sheet an unusual allowance for depre- ciation. THE DURATION OF THE WAR Dr. Adam Shortt, of Ottawa, who has just returned from England, says the opinion of London financiers ia MARKSMANSHIP IN WAR "Arms and a British .teciiniwil and trade publication, in re- ferring to marksmanship in war, states thai one of the features of the present war which will be studied with closest interest is the behavior of the .British infantry in relation to marksmanship problems. The journal dwells on the lessons derived from the South African war. Though, conditions are widely differ- ent now, in. the fact of masses en- deavoring to oppose masses, and so generally making approximate aim suffice. It states that some very effect- ive worfc appears already to have been .done 'by individuals high marksmanship Qualifications. Recog- nizing.this, "Arms and Explosives" ap- plauds. the scheme of the National Rifie Association of appointing a spec- ial body of military rifle shooting In- etructors. A use is thus foiled in the hbuT of need for.a-class of shooter which has of late not received proper ipprecl on. :The local rine club ought to receive ctlmulus from the above remarks, end the. Importance of a good rifle to his community, to his country, or to big nation, should the necessity arise, may, if need be, further empha- sized by the following quotation which writer Introduces. It Is from of .an eipert who, ID Meldnc to describe the machine- (ikt coolness of the British troops in firing line, oa to say: "The firing wts not the usual firing of .the nerrotii man, thoetiaf -without aim- IPZ, ud eometlmet Tltiout rhyme or reason, as is so often the case in war- fare; it was rather the calm, calculat- ed rifiemanship ofthe men one sees on the Stickledown range, firing with all the artificial aids permitted to the match rifle experts whose one concern is prize money. When quiet' action was necessary the firing and the ac- tion of the men were only those of prize riflemen firing at a disappearing target. There was no excitement, no nervousness; just cool, methodical efficiency." This assurance and accuracy can only 'bo gained by rifle practice, and, as the journal under notice observes, "The old sneer that rifle shooting could not 'be conducted under target shooting conditions if the targets were firing back also receives.its quietus." that the war will not pbb of long dura- tion. of them e.TpecMhat the strug- gle will ba practically decided byj Christmas, and, in any event, by next j spring, the problem of financial and food supplies for Germany and Aus- tria being the determining factor. With the British navy in control of tho seas, and food supplies for the Allies from abroad being thereby guaranteea, with the financial resour- ces of Russia, France and Great Bri- tain considerably greater than those of the enemy, and with the prospect of both Germany and Austria feeing unableTto maintain the present pace or to till their fields, next year, Dr. Shortt says the pressure from finan- cial stringency and from shortage of food supplies in Austria and Germany should compel them to come to terms vrith the Allies within a very few months. .That is the impression that prevails among the. best economic au- thorities in Great Britain.
