SCHOOL BOARD TO COLLECT TAXES ON EXEMPTIONS It was reported at last night's meeting of the Board of -Educa- tion that the exemption of any property from school tax was il- legal, and it is likely that the Board will go after some of the exemptions.

Rudolpha Lemieux in House-Express Company Laughs PELLETIER DEFENDS II House Puts Estimates on Millions Voted Yesterday Ottawa, Ont., June decision to put the Redistribution bill on the law books of the before prorogation'' takes place, mem- bers hoth. houses expect the end of the session to come this week, The end Is expected to be reached OD( Friday, and if not then, on Saturday. A disposition, to wind up was plainly evidenced, in the mons yesterday, when, millions upon" millions of money .were includ< ing no less ihaa thirteen millions for the department of Public Works. Aa one member put "the estimates- Tverc.upon a toboggan lnL all, thirty millions were voted. The money voted included portions of estimates not hitherto .voted, anb! a supplementary batch brought ;down; a few days ago. 'Practically all; the departments were concerned, and throughout the day one minister after another explained remaining items' they desired to. have voted, and reap- ed the criticisms of the opposition. Concurrence in the estimates voted and the Redistribution hill is about all tlie business the Commons still to dispose of, while the work yet to be done by the Senate is practical ly confined "to the Redistribution' bill. At the evening sitting, Hon. Rod olpbe Lemieux. gave a general review; of the policy of the post office'depart- ment In some matters, and asked for a statement In regard to It frbnTHoh. Mr Pelletier He hoped the British magazine post would' not be done away. with..because of the friction be- tween the British and Canadian post; office departments. He also express- ed the hope that something might bo done to -cheapen, cable rates. Mr. Lemieux then referred to par- cel post, and stated that, whereas iii: States it had been so' successful' as to put express compuii- ies out of business, in Canada it had pioved to be more or less of.a gold brick, and was not a success, broad Iy speaking. It certainly bad not TG duced the high cost- of living, and could scarcely do so when the rates were considered. Tbe parcel post rate beyond tlie twenty-mile limit from Montreal, was greater than the express rate. The Dominion Express Co. had even been led to issue a state- ment that It was not afraid .'.the competition of the parcel post In regard to the cable the Postmaster-General stated that the Poulson -wireless stations on the coast of Ireland and at Newcastle, N. Hi, were almost completed. He would not go into the question of a new cable across the Atlantic for this rea- son that the home government would not join with Canada, and other Dominions affected in such Toject until more was known of .he extraordinary progresa Tireless telegraphy .was. making. The gov- ernment had pointed out that .it would be necessary .to lay two cables under the Atlantic, and that It might afterwards be found that as good-ser- vice could have been supplied by wireless. As regards the British magazine rates, Mr. Pelletier said he would not oudge an inch from his position that Canada should obtain a half-penny lor larrying these magazines from Liver- )ool to Vancouver, since the British post office obtained now one penny or carrying them only from London o Liverpool. He thought the British minorities would accept hia.proposi .ion. Turning to question. Ur. PeHetier said that there had been in organized war in Liberal newspa- pers against this public convenience. said he had in mind the 'stablishment of a collecting system of parcel post as well as a delivery system.
