MoreThreshing Profits OP WEALTH, TOO The following resolution was passed by the Cnlted Farmers of Alberta Thursday o,t Calgary: Resolved, that we, the board of directors of the Vnited Farmers of Alberta, in executive mooting assembled, hereby nflinii our belief in the principle of the selective conscription of men to carry on the war, and the conscription of wealth for the same purpose. We also pledge our support to the government in an effort to intelligently and prudently carry into effect tlio conscription of men for this purpose, but in connection with and nt the same time as that effort is made we insist that the government put into effect a systematic, just and equitable scheme of conscription of the wealth of the whole country. It must be tinder-stood, however, that thifCscheme must embrace the conscription of income wealth"of all the men and institutions of the Dominion. The rate at which these incomes are assessed must bo increased as the Incomes increase until a certain limitation is reached, after which the remninder of said income is to be conscripted. We also insist that in case of lands that have been acquired and held out of productive use. such lands are to be subject to equitable taxation, and in cases where lands are not subject to assessment and collectable taxation, such lands are to be expropriated, with or without, at the discretion of the government, a reasonable remuneration to cover original cost of said lauds, and the title thereto to revert to the crown and become part j of the public domain.
