FKIWKNT OF RKPUBLIC WILL DISCUSS MATTERS WITH WILSON.
I . S. and Britain Agree.
PARIS, Jan. 23. The solution of the Russian problem proposed by the supreme council o ftlie peace congress is considered here as the first visible manifestation and realization of American and British accord on the great issues before the peace congress. It is understood that inasmuch as the supreme council adopted the American plan for a settlement of the Russian question, the British plan may form the foundation for a league of nations.
While yesterday’s official statement was silent on Russia’s foreign debt there is reason to believe that assurance has been conveyed that the hoists ists will recede from their threat to repudiate this debt in consideration of entente relief for economic conditions in Russia.

\\ ASH I NG TON. Jan. 22. Conferees on tile new* 2-year war revenue bill have completed their w*ork on the income tax section of the measure. The last revision of that important '.feature pf the bill has been road tided. The last word has b#*n said. except perhaps a few ineffectual protests when th** conference report comes tip for ratification in both houses.
It may therefore be definitely stated what the income tax will he when the American people must pay for the year 1918. and also for the year I 1919 and thereafter, unless a Republican Congress about to come into being should amend the pending law.
On incomes of individuals the tax is to be as follows:
For the calendar year 1918, 12 per cent of the amount of the net income in excess of the credit provid- 1 cd in section 216; provided, that in1 case erf a citizen or resident of the United Stites the rate upon the first *$4,000 of such amount shall be 6 j per centum.
For each calendar year thereafter,
8 per cent o/ the amount of the net income in excels of the credits pro- I vided in section 216; provided, that in the case of a citizen or resident of the United States the rate upon the first $4,000 of such amount shall be 4 per cent.
In addition to the above, the stir-1 taxes on large incomes range from I n <:• crnt on net ’incomes in excess of
>00 and not in excess pf $6,000, to f*.r> per cent on the income in ex- I cess of I million dollars.
Exemptions or credits under the law as affecting individuals shall be as follow's:
“The amount received as dividends from a corporation which is taxable under this title upon its net income.
“The amount received as interest upon obligations of the United States I and bonds issued by the wrar finance corporation which is included In gross income tinder section 213.
“In the case of a single pet3on, a personal exemption of $1,000, or in the case of the head of a family or married person living with husband or wife, a personal exemption of $2,000. A husband and wife living together shall receive but one personal exemption of $2,000 against their aggregate net income; and In case they make separate returns the personal exemption of $2,000 may be taken by either or divided between them.
“Two hundred dollars for each person (other than husband or wife) dependent upon and receiving his chief support from the taxpayer; lf such dependent person is under 18 years of age or is incapable of self support because mentally o. physically defective.”
PARIS, Jan. 23 An official builtin is.1 ued by the Press Bureau this afternoon says:
“The proposals of President Wilson were approved, including recog-j nition by the associated powers of j the t ight of the Russian people to I direct their own affairs without die-! tation from the outside. The powers ' do not wish to exploit Russia.
“The powers recognize the revolution and in no way countenance a counter-revolution. They wish to serve Russia unselfishly and invite all organized groups in Siberia or! within the boundaries of European j Russia as it stood before the war to send representatives to Prince’s Is-1 land to meet representatives of the associated pow*ers, provided there is a truce of arms meanwhile.
“Such representatives will be expected at the place appointed by Feb. 15.
“A plenary session of the conference Saturday will discuss Mr. Lloyd George’s proposals for a league of nations.”
Prince’s Islands, consist of a group of nine small islands in the Sea of j Marmora, from ten to fifteen miles j southeast of Constantinople. The largest is Khaki. On this island is a naval academy and a Greek school ; of theology. The population of the islands numbers about 10,000 for the ; most part Greeks, Turks and Armen (ans. *
