The 'freedom of the seas' Is a phrase tbfit may mean anything or nothing^ to be interpreted as Germany interprets. Thertj must be no interpretation of the phrase that would; pre: vent the British navy, in the event of any future/ war, from repeating the tremendous service it has rendered in this war. T^e British must, of course, keep the colonies they have conquei--ed."\ ^ conceded to-be one ot the fairest taxes there are. � ; . Why should some people 'earning good salaries and not paying-any other taxes, enjoy the benefits /of his home t9wn or citj at the expense of others? ' The object of including everyone In the income tax is not for the purpose of obtaining any considerable, tax from the ordinary wage earner or moderate salaried man, but i't is'for the purpose of simplifying the enforcement of the tax. If ever^rone has to pay something, .no matter how small^ there is not Jhe difficulty of lindlng out who should'pay rand who should not. You might have'stated in regard to this tax had'you'wished to do so that the tax imposed-would b.e on a sliding scale, according to a man's- ability to pay, and that It Is the intention -to make 'the tax^'SO' light-on the man earning a small - salary,, that it would not be a 'burden, ,and that unless his income tax 'exceeds hlS' regular tax h6 would not pay any income tax. , As regards the increase of waterlwid Electric light, it Is simply anothefr way ^f spreading uniformly a load _that must be borne by our citizen^ "The tax. question- is,a:sore subject, particularly in this country whore such extravagant expenditures have been made. But the best was^ never too good for the people of the west, when i most ot our debts were contracted. We now have to pay the bill and tliere is no use hollering about it. It should also be borne in mind that in nearly all cases of large expenditures the peoiijof sanctioned ^ the exr pendlture, whether wisely'or not is not tt^e question.
