On the wisdom of tho men who go over ^;he machine and renew and adjust the parts de-ponds Ills ability to carry on. Union government's job is to take the machine apart, fit the cogs new and old Into their places and put 11 together again witli tho least disturbance to the business of the country. A new (tog in tho machine is the returned soldier and he will take, a lot oC fitting. Tho oil tor the whole macliine is taxation-tho tariff, war profits tax, land tax, inconio tax and such other iQVics as may be considered necessary-Union government has a fine chance ahead of it to make taxation scientific, logical and eciultable. If there is anything In the British North America Act which complicates the problem It is easy enough to have the British North America. Act amended. Broadly speaking tho toxes should be laid on those who are best able to pay them. The rights of property must be respected. There Is no need of anything | that looks like confiscation but the man who has been able to beat the game as it has been played up till now and to make a largo fortune must pay handsomely - for the privilege >be has enjoyed. This need not mean nationalizing Industry but It will probably mean a more equitable division of profits with the state. The bee need not be killed but lie should be obliged to hand over more of his honey to the public treasury. Tho man who after a long life of toil and struggle has achieved a moderate competence should got off more lightly. . Union government would be doing a good work,to define clearly the zones of taxation-that"48 to �ay the taxes which are leviable by the.federal, provincial, and raiinlolpal powers. Just now many anomalies' and' much overlapping ' exist: - For- instance the Ontario government levies a.inlU rate on all real estate In the province. It has been doing so for the last three years during which period six million dollars have been raised. Of this about one million dollars have been devoted to tho war purposes which were the excuse for tho lovy and five juiUIoh dollars have been devoted to other objects. This tax is an encroachment on the municipal taxing power and should , receive tho attention of any government which undertakes, to build up a t^x BChemo tot-Canada.. . Another grievance is the^'ncomo tax. by cities of one hundred tliousand or over. As the tax Is enforced now. It is both a farce and an. Injustice. The llttlo fellowa whose names appear on pay j-olU-tare squeezed tp the last cent If they once make the mistake of acknowledgioB tho city's claim. If they throw the notice iu tho waste paper basket nothing more is said ab-' out it. Thus the wllllne horse is overloaded. The big fellows whose Income* do not appear on pay rolls but are hidden away In bonds and stooks get oft next _to scot free-the custom ije-Ing to take their affidavits as gantle-men and let them off with what ^ey are willing to own up to. It Ibe federal power, takes ^iithorlty to levy an income tax, the municipal iw>wer should not enjoy ,a similar privilege, Tho Income tax shoiild be a federal tax and devoted .to federal purposes. It should^be a real l^x, not a solemn Joke', and the waj^ to get at the moneyi Is to go to.the source of tho Income and tax it there. As a'municipal gov-orpmoiit Is conducted now nine men out of ten would rathfer,pay an income taxto Ottav^a'thiw to tUe dunderheads In tlie home town. Blew With Terrible Velocity and Much Damtigc About City SoutUorn Alberta e�:p�rl�nce(l the worst wind storm In years last night and iietlibrldge was In tho centro of It, with the result that report!) of nam-ago to buildingB are being received on every hand. .luat a year ago on January 8th a similar wind storm _Hwept the south, taking oft u nnmljor of roofs In the city and doing considerable damage, but not so much as ,wns the case last night.

Bill boards are down all over the city. Commissioner Freeman reports many electric light services down and the whole ctow of linemen will bo busy for a couple of days repairing the damage.

The Experimental Farm has no in .strument for measuring the velocity of tho wind, but it Is variously estimat ed by citizens as from 100 to 1000 miles an hour according to how many hours sleep were lost.
