MILLIONAIRES M.VDBEW CARNEGiiz THINKS u. s. AND BRITISH DOMINIONS NOT! ADVANCED ENOUGH London. Aug. Carnegie, in unveiling a statue of Robert Burns at Jlontrose yesterday, said: "In one department the Motherland is ahead of the the United States. She has established the law, first proclaimed by Adam Smith, that every subject should con- tribute to the support qf the govern- ment in proportion to the income he enjoys under the protection of the state. In this just taxation, the mil- lionaires of the Dominions and the United States have so far escaped, but their day is coming. The hoards of millionaires should he so treated, not as a punishment, but for their good, because it is just and justice alone insures general contentment."
