It matters not how much n man contributes under the cx-ccss-prollts tax, tho whole of his net Income should be subject tr; taxation. Tho measure has not yet passed tho house. It is subject to revision. No doubt the wealth conscriptlouists will make their Influence felt and the UiU as finally passed will be made much ^PICKED UP IN-* PASSING FOR THE BUSY MAN more acceptable to tlu people. mass of tho .forms Spain Irrigates oxm-fourth of all its THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The Anglo-French offensive" is rap-ldiy resuming large proportions, and the advance has now reached a depth of two miles on a front of over 15 miles. Many prisoners have been taken. The German forces opposing are comprised of Bavarian troops, the best the German army can offer. The offensive is being pressed. Bad weather which has interfered has lifted and with the sunshine again, the British guns, brought up to new positions, have again opened their relentless bombardment, preparatory to still another advance into Belgium by the Infantry. These advances will bring tho allies well towards their objective, the capture of German seacoast bases in Belgium. The natural conclusion Is now that naval forces will be co-operating"short-]y with the land forces in attacks on the German bases. Air,' naval and land supremacy should soon bring a decision in this offensive,, said to be the greatest of the war. MICHAEL CLARK NOT HELPING THE CAUSE If Dr. Michael Clarke, M.P., is sincere and earnest in his purpose to arouse (he people of all classes to support conscription as a win tho war measure, he should appeal to them on the highest grounds. He cannot expect to attract many Liberals to the support of conscription by viciously attacking Sir Wilfrid Lauricr. It would seem that Dr. Clarke had a grudge against tho Liberal chief, for there Is certainly no need for him to assail Sir Wilfrid as ho is doing. Is his only aim. to win the war? Sir Wilfrid Laurler as leader of tho Liberal party did not object to any Liberal member foiling any course he thought best on conscription. Dr. Clarke differed with his leader and his leader didn't object. Surely Sir Wilfrid has a right to his opinions, no matter how much we may differ with those opinions. These are critical times in Canada and Dr. Clarke is not following the wisest course in embittering the elements opposed to conscription and driving away from support of conscription many ardent Liberals, who while they might be prepared to differ with Sir Wilfrid on this measure, believe that the Liberal leader fs honest in the course that he has seen fit to take. Anyway personal attacks never help a cause, and the conscription cause is b'(? enough to be advocated from the highest standpoint. THE CHAUTAUQUA, A REAL COMMUNITY BUILDER Lethbridge is to have the privilege of entertaining for one week the Chautauqua, from August 7 to 13. The Chautauqua is not a religious organization, as many people think. The Chautauqua is not a vaudeville circuit, as many people think. The Chautauqua Is an organization which brings to the community which j could not porsibly so be benefitted otherwise, the highest class of entertainment at a price so low that everyone in the community can enjoy it. The Chautauqua brings the world's greatest scientists, authors, lecturers, musicians and entertainers to the doors of more than twelve million people who otherwise are shut out from the enjoyment of such benefits. The Chautauqua is a twentieth century ' county fair which features art, music, intellect and entertainment. The Chautauqua is broadly educational without being academic. The Chautauqua has solved the problem of clean, wholesome entertainment. The Chautauqua is a most effective community builder, for to be successful, the Chautauqua impels the co-operation of the entire community in a united effort for the common good. Lethbridge is privileged to be among the communities in Canada to welcome this organization. The Herald bespeaks for the Chautauqua week here the patronage it merits. PROTECTION IN AUSTRALIA They have a way of doing things down in Australia that makes Canada appear to be In the also-ran class. Cooperation is at home in the Commonwealth. Long term loans have been a success In the antipodean colony. Government ownership of railways is far beyond the experimental stage. And now they are getting to the bottom of the real meaning of protection In the matter of tariff. They call It New Protection, and it is finding a permanent place in Australian economics. New Protection postulates that "a manufacturer who benefits by the Commonwealth protective tariff should charge a reasonable price for the goods he manufactures, and should institute a fair and reasonable rate of wages and conditions of labor for his workmen." No doubt this sounds almost anarchistic to high protectionists in this country' where the manufacturer gets behind the protective tariff te bo'ster up Inefficient management or to make excess profits by charging for his goods all the tariff will bear. There seems to be no hint In this country of co-operation between the manufacturer and the consumer. The tariff bears little or no relation to the economic needs of the country. Mostly it is a football to be kicked about during general elections. It would be a good idea if a couple of thousand citizens not of the politician stripe were to visit Australia for a year at the expense of the government and absorb some of the ctfm-monsense ideas which seem to pervade Australian government in its relation to the people.

In this wny, ho la euro the falcon will rush .at every perls-cope he sees in tho hope of a fine dinner. In tho official announcement that Major W. H.

SHORTAGE OF MEN HORRIBLE CRUELTY London, July 31.-A dispatch received today by the wireless press from Amsterdam says: "German authorities at Liege, Bel-glum, arrested, tried and sentenced to death within threo days an influential Liege merchant named Groneret, his wife and their two daughters, aged 20 and 14 years, on the unproved charge of espionage. "The father and mother were both shot to death in the presence of their daughters. The latter were to have their freedom if they revealed the names of their parents' accomplices. The girls refused, the eldest saying: 'If we speak we might cause 50 people to be killed. We would rather dio along.' "She was Immediately shot. The youngest girl then was tortured, outraged and also Bhot." CRITICISM OF INCOME TAX PROPOSAL j The Hamilton Herald, which cannot i be said to be inimical to the present j government at Ottawa, criticizes Sir j Thomas White's income tax proposals en the grounds of inadequacy. A glaring defect in this tax scheme, It says, Ik the inadequate discrimination between the man of family and the man without dependents. All down the scale, the rich unmarried man Is not required to pay more than 910 In excess ot the amount paid bv tho married r.ian It is to be suppisej that Sir Thomas White, in trailing tho tax schedule, observed the principle of ability to pay. But It is absurd to suppose, tor example, that a man without � dependents, with nobody but himself to provide for, and enjoying an income of $20,000 a year,' is not able to pay more than $40 in excess of the tax paid by the man in \ receipt of the same income but who has a large family to maintain. Another feature of the scheme which is open to criticism is the privilege granted to persons who are subject to the excess-profits tax to deduct the amount of that tax from their income tax. There is no need for this provision. The income tax is a tax on net incomes, and a business man's net income is his income after all business charges, including the excess-profits tax, have been deducted. The effect of the concession which is made to the payers of tho excess-profits tax will be to .relieve that class ot taxpayers from tho payment ot income tax to the amount ot the profits tax paid by them. Many of them, probably, will thus escape payment of income tax' altogether. This would be very unluit. For Instance, a man who pays on excess-profits tax of, say, $5,-MO, may enjoy a net Income of $50,-c00; but he would be free from the in- E VIEWS ON Montreal, July 30.-The Gazette's London correspondent now in Dublin watching the progress of events attending the Irish conference .in a cablegram published this morning, says: "After an Interview with several Sinn Feiners, the correspondent is convinced thafwhlle the leaders maintain an extremely menacing attitude toward England their language is that of extremists and may be largely discounted. Valera and Arthur Griffiths make the stubborn assertion that they will not listen to any proposals from England or any proposals from follow Irishmen which take England into account. "When the correspondent suggested that Ireland might accept home rule on the lines adopted by the Dominion of Canada Griffiths replied: " 'Canada is a colony, Ireland is not. Canada has accepted the British flag, Ireland never will.' "A third Irishman interviewed is not a proclaimed Sinn Felner, but, while sitting on the fence he leans strongly to their Bide. He admitted that Ii eland might be content with the Canadian form of government, but ho wanted separation from England, with no members at Westminster. He admitted, however, that there will be trade advantage for Ireland in retin-ing connection with tho British empire."
