Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, March 15, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 9 E. P. Taylor wins battle with British tax collector Collision inevitable on road to impeachment LONDON (CP) Canadian millionaire E. P. Taylor has won a battle against the British income tax department on the basis of an 1852 law that, among other things, permits tax relief for the cost of keeping a horse for business transport. But in the case of Taylbr, 73- year-old businessman and breeder of race horses, the controversy centred on he was reimbursed for transatlantic business trips between 1961-66. Last March an appeal court upheld the inland revenue's attempt to tax Taylor on these payments, but the House of Lords has ruled 3-2 that Taylor's expenses were covered by the old law. Lawyers for -Taylor, director of many companies and chairman of Canadian Breweries Ltd., said he lived mainly in Canada and the Bahamas but in the 1960s became involved in the British brewing industry. United Breweries was created through amalgamation of sev- eral companies and in 1962 it merged with Charrington, which later merged again to form Bass Charrington Ltd. He was a director of both companies and although he re- ceived no remuneration for his services, he was repaid ex- penses. He did most of his work in connection with the English amalgamations in Canada or the Bahamas, the Lords were told, but made frequent trips to England. Lord Salmon, one of the Law Lords voting with -the majority, said "the days of 1852 are long past" when persons usually were able to walk to work or used horseback or horse-drawn vehicles. "The continuous presence of the horse in the rule, in spite of its many re-enactments, hardly suggests that much attention has been given to bringing the rule up to he added. Taylor was never a resident of the United Kingdom and it was on this basis that the ap- peal succeeded, although tax lawyers argued that he was not "necessarily obliged" to incur the travel expenses because he could have resided in England if he chose. The ruling, however, does not mean that Britons regularly commuting to work Boundary indeed in doubt EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government wants to redraw some southern sections of its provincial border with British Columbia but it has nothing to do with the much publicized bid by Fernie, B.C.. to join Alberta. The order paper at the Alberta legislature this week contained notice of a bill to be introduced called the Alberta British Columbia Boundary Act. but Attorney General Merv Leitch said outside the house it has nothing to do with moves by Fernie and several other communities to secede from B.C. Although reluctant to talk about a bill yet to be introduced, the attorney general indicated the legislation is designed to provide the machinery to sort out some uncertain sections of the border between the two provinces. There are some mountainous areas in the southwest corner of Alberta where survey lines establishing the border are difficult to establish. Mr, Leitch said. The legislation would set up a commission that would examine the uncertain border areas and report back to the governments in both provinces. Mr, Leitch said B.C. is expected to enact similar legislation so the commission would have legal status in that province. Mr. Leitch was not certain how large an area was included in the uncertain border. "But the uncertainty is not so large as to take in areas of the Kootenays and Fernie." The .vhift in the border requires action by the provincial governments involved and Ottawa under a mechanism spelled cut in the British North America Act. The B.C. communities that want to join Alberta say they are ignored by the provincial government in Victoria. can claim similar tax benefits. Percy Hughes, editor of the magazine Taxation, said the act covers expenses that are "wholly, exclusively and necessarily incurred in the performance of duties." By JAMES M. NAUGHTON New York Times Service WASHINGTON The clash between the White House and the House Judiciary Committee over Watergate evidence may be significant less because of what is being said than because of what is being assumed on both sides: sooner or later, the committee will recommend that President Nixon be impeached. With that likelihood in mind, the president's associates and the committee's leaders appear to be maneuvering to control the timing of the impeachment decision and the' grounds on which it will be framed. The White House evidently would prefer a quick and perhaps consummate collision over the narrow constitutional question of whether Nixon would be in contempt of congress should he as his aides have strongly suggested he will refuse to supply tape recordings and documents sought by the committee investigators. But the house committee is a fragi-le coalition of Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives. And its Democratic chairman, Rep. Peter W. Rodino Jr. would sooner delay a confrontation with the president until the inquiry staff can obtain and persuade the committee's more reluctant dragons to support impeachment. On the surface, the issue is whether the president should give the committee White House recordings of 42 conversations in which he was apparently involved last year. Ronald L. Ziegler, the White House press secretary, contended that it wquld be "constitutionally irrespon- sible" of the president to surrender to the judiciary committee all that it was requesting. Bryce N. Harlow, a senior counselor to the president, told newsmen that the committee was in effect trying to forage through White House files like undisciplined children. And James D. St. Clair, Nixon's special Watergate counsel, underscored the essential byut implicit point when he asserted in an interview with the New York Times that his client was not Nixon individually but "the office of the presidency." Taken together, the.White House comments suggested the outline of a strategy for minimizing the impact of the impeachment inquiry: first, the president would likely deny the committee request on the ground that to honor it would set a precedent for dangerous future forays into confidential White House records, second, the White House would attempt to picture the committee as irresponsible and thus perhaps weaken its influence on the House of Representatives as a whole. Lieut. Col. Macleod y Respected as a Soldier. Honoured as a Diplomat. Trusted as a Man. Lieutenant Colonel James Farquharson Macleod, Assistant Commissioner of the North West Mounted Police. He was left with a small detachment on the Belly River with orders to build a fort, treat with the chiefs of the Blackfoot Nation and stop the whiskey trade. Almost before Fort Macleod was finished he had arrested and fined a group of whiskey traders in the vicinity. He told the Indians that the Mounties would protect them providing they obeyed the Queen's laws. He kept his promise. He told the settlers and traders that the law had come to the west, that the old days were over. He kept his promise. Macleod dealt with the Indians so fairly that Chief Bulls Head of the Peigans honoured him with his own name Stamixotokan. In 1876, Macleod became the second Commissioner of the Force and one year later, Septem- ber 22, 1877, he. along with the representatives of the Government and the chiefs of the Blackfoot, signed Treaty Number Seven. The treaty that opened the way to a Canada settled from sea to sea. Lieutenant Colonel Macleod a great man in a history one hundred years proud. From our proud post, the promise of our future.
