"Tho question should be handled with steel gauntlets," he says. "Ignorance Is rampant Jn my native province." He places' the blame on the shoulders ot tho fathers of confederation who allowed two ofllcial languages. Dual language begotB separate schools and thoy beget ignorance. It may require a small army to enforce radical changes after the war but we shall have , it, The. Indifference of Quebec in this struggle will be a powerful lever in the hands ot a bold leader. Ottawa, July 25.-When the houso mot today Sir Robert Borden replying to a question put by Mr. Olivor a few days ago, said that in connection with tho snforcement of tho military service act the same policy in regard to the recruiting of men of alien enemies would be followed as had been followed in connection with voluntary enlistment, or In other words It would not bo considered advisable to enliBt for tho overseas service men who would not be considered advisable to enlist for the overseas Borvlco men who would not bo acceptable to tho Imperial authorities. Hon. Frank Cochrane, replying to a question, said that legislation respecting the Quebec and Saguenay railway would be introduced this session. The Income Tax In introducing his resolution providing tor an Income tax, Sir Thomas White said that the adoption of the military service bill would make it necessary for the Dominion to raise a larger revenue. There had been, ho said, a growing feeling in Canada that those enjoying large Incomes should pay more toward tho cost of the war. The legislation was a distinct innovation but it was necessary under tho circumstances. He said that up to the present time ho had hesitated to bring down such a measure because the provinces nnd the municipalities are confined to direct taxation for the raising of revenues. Canada he said, was not a country of concen trated wealth. As a result the cost of administration would be large. Ho had also been influenced in the past by the desire that Canada should not be known as a country of heavy taxation and besides the people had contributed generously to the Patriotic, Red Cross and other funds. However, the war waB continuing on- an ever increasing style and he believed that the people of Canada were prepared to exert their resources to the end in order that victory may be obtained. Tho time has now arrived whon we must resort to this measure of direct taxation. Sir Thomas said that in framing the legislation it had been recognized that the cost of living had been rapidly Increasing and that many provinces and municipalities can 1m pose Income taxes. This makes people liable to three different income taxes. Consideration was also given the fact that wo are inviting immigration to Canada and for that reason our tax should not be substantially heavier than that of the United States, it had been decided, ho said, to place the limit of exemption at $3,000 for married men and $2,000 for single men or widows without children. Sir Thomas then said tho income taxation had been fixed as follows Four percent, of all incomes of unmarried men and widowers without children, exceeding $2,000 and married men on incomes exceeding $3,000. In addition there would be a supertax of 2 percent, on all incomes between six and ten thousand dollars, five percent, on incomes between ten and twenty thousand dollars, eight percent, on incomes between twenty and thirty thousand dollars, ten percent, on incomes betwoen thirty and fifty thousand dollars, fifteen percent, on Incomes between fifty and one hundred thousand dollars and twenty-five percent, on incomes exceeding one hundred thousand dollars. The minister explained that corporations and joint stock companies would be liable to the four per cent, taxation, but In the case of shareholders they would be credited with the amount paid by the companies. Business firms were also to be exempt to the extent ot the amount paid on business profits. Foreign companies will pay tho tax on their earnings in this country. The minister stated that the income tax will apply to the year 1917 and that everyone would bo expected to make a declaration as to thoir Income bofore February 28, 1918. There Is provision In the bill tor appeal and collection, but no tirao limit has been placed on it. Sir Thomas believed that after the war Is over this legislation should be reviewed Obed with a view to readjustment In the a ovont of It being consldornd that it might prevent capital coming into Canada. # Whan sir Thomas had concluded, A. K. McLean, on behalf of the opposition said that tho taxation proposals would bo generally approved by the people of the country. The details of the measure, he said could bo considered in commlttoo. Mr. McLean was interrupted by tho arrival of the sergoant ut arms of tho senate to summon the member to tho upper chamber, where the deputy governor-general gave assent to a number of bills.

OF HUNS RESULT ONLY IN DEFEAT On the French Front, July 24.-Tho furious attack of the Germans along the Chemln Des Dames sector of the Alsne front haB brought them nothing but death and the complete failure of all their plans to obtain possession of the ridge and the observation places. At daybreak today the French who hart made up their minds that things had gone far enough launched a counter-attack with such vigor that they turned tho Germans out of a few hundred yardB of trenches they had succeeded In occupying in the first on set and sent them rushing back to their old lines. The famous 152nd regiment led the attack and overcame all resistance. The California plateau was the scene of the most furious fighting. The Germans who gained a footing there at the beginning of the offensive were driven out everywhere except at one small point. All the trenches have been levelled and It is impossible to live there under the constant rain of shells. On the Casemates Plateau the result was Bituilar, tho French would not be denied. The artillery tonight is at work most vigorously. The front line is almost as light as day from the flashes of shells. THE BOYS APPROVE. , Much dubt is expressed -as to tho wisdom of the proposal, recently made by the Ottawa Board ot Trade, that, in order to secure a good supply ot labor on the farms, the high schools this year should remain closed until the first of November. The boys, however, it 1b understood, are strongly in favor of the scheme, and consider that it is not only wise statesmanship, but represents such a return to common sense as to fill them with hope for the future. ___. - -_|__  BRITISH RAID  London, July 25.-Tho official officers in successful raids  made by us yesterday east and  north-west of Ypres.
