Ottawa, Aug. 17.-The third reading was given to Sir Thomas White's income tax bill on the eve of the adjournment of the house tonight. When the third reading was moved at. the \ afternoon session, Fred Pardee, chief I Liberal whip, presented an amendment calling for a decided increase in the scale of income taxation on all alaries in excess of $0,000 per annum. The proposal was vigorously debated until ti o'clock. When the otiso resumed after the dinner hour, the amendment was ruled out of order by Mr. Spoaker Rhodes, who quoted the rule which does not permit an amendment being moved proposing the levying of a tax upon the peoplo by anyone but. a minister with the approval of the crown. With the amendment disposed of, the debate continued on the main motion, opposition members declaring that insofar as the rich are eon-corned, the taxation proposed was not such as to call for any real measure of sacrifice. During the afternoon further consideration was given in committee to tho Canadian Northern railway bill, but no headway was made. Sir Thomas White gave notice, of a number of amendments which will come under review when the house resumes the debate on the bill. One amendment provides that not more than $25,000,000 may be spent to meet obligations arising out of the proposed agreement of the Canadian Northern railway without a vote from parliament. Another amendment strikes out clause four, which provides for paying1 Mackenzie and Mann In securities as well as in cash. Tho now amendment provides for cash payments.
