BLAMING BIG BUSINESS FOR IT It Is now charged that the -new government is the creation of '-'Dig Business." Time will tell. In the meantime we don't think Big Business will put anything overven the Vestem'. Liberals and Frank .Carvell nid N. >V., If it doea lien _we-can get.busy, and slay'tiero.

K II deals I drastically j with onr war problems, -even, though 11 may bo eBcient and aggresslre and hlislrjessllke. It probably mar- become unpopular. Onr income- laiatlon should be made much heavier and that Is done, the government's course will not be popular with wealth. Canada however, has been loo lenient with wealth since the war began.- K must change Ita policy or the people will loon change the government. An In- come (ax which Ukes only (SO from Income of fa.OOQ and which leaves a man out ol an Income of f 000, Is almost farcical as a war mea- aure- la Ihe United Stales we are told (hat lie tax bill recently paised In that country realizes almost wholly from wealth and The new government should lome real ginger Into Sir Thot- White, minister of finance, and force .him to lu hlv wealthy friends or get I 'out of the ministry and let someone else take his place who will be tear ;less enough to deal drastically with the problems. The new government should pnt lla (ool down good and lard upon all forms of war profiteering. It aecet- .eary profits should be limited ud the countries In bringing Into existence a union government. Great Britain has a has Australia, so has South Africa, so has .France, so has Rnssia. In: the United Slates Ihere Is a Democratic president aud a IJemocralic cabinet but President TVil- eon hss surrounded hfmaelf add his Cabinet with lie services of men of all political beliefs until the United States can be said lo possess a nnlon govenoient. In a time of war we have a cam- mon eaeay and why should we not combat that common enemy unitedly? We can't do that under parly govern- ment because a party government Is almnt certain to be partisan and con- sequently-wins-the antagonism of Its political opponents. We won't say that nnlon government will obliterate all the.etlla of party government, bnt we: do. belleTe.lt-will-be bitter able fa" serre people by reason of the'fact, that'll wiilTepreae.nl men of.ail shades of. opinion. It Is charg- ed that a union government Is lively lo suffer from lack of serious Intelll- in parrianient: That has beea .the case la England and It certalnlf will not be the case In Canada.-The' new government If It Is sustained will not be able to get through legislation Vlibout plenty ot suggestions and crillclims.
