H.M.S. AUDACIOUS IS
NOW REPAIRED AGAIN
Damage  Done to  Her by Striking   a
-Mine  Has   Been
Righted.
London,  Feb.   ill.     II   appears that
the rumors last fall of damages done
H. M. S. Audacious were correct;
nt least Insofar as her being hit by
a mine. That she has aol been sunk
is now assured by unofficial reports
that tell of her being expected to
join the rojal navy next week, after repairs at lho Ha'latid-Wolff
works  In  Belfast.
What apparently happened on
October 27 was that she struck a
mine, which blew a hole through
her. The hole was plugged, however,
wit collision mats, and she was kept,
afloat until she was towed into the
drydock.

some encounters took place on February 13, On the loft bank of the
Vistula the customary cannonading
occurred.

The special taxes proposed by the
Minister of Finance al Ottawa will
in. in ii- taxes on lhe nole circulation
of banks, the income of trust and
loan companies, taxes on cables and
telegrams, railway and steamship
tickets, as well as stamp taxes upon
cheques, business receipts, express
and postal orders, letters and postal
cards, bills of lading and perfumery, while additional taxes have been
imposed upon wines and champagnes
The -Minister of' Finance anticipates an increase in revenue of over
thirty million dollars from the new-
taxes. .Mr. White gave a detailed
statement in regard to the new taxation as follows:
TnrilV Chief Mainstay.
The chief source and the mainstay of our revenue is the tariff and
it is to this we must look principally for relief of our present financial
condition. Taxation Imposed by increases in the customs duties bears
on all classes because all are consumers and in paying additional
taxation each member of the community will feel that he is to that
extent contributing to the cost of
the war and the defence of his country. As an auxiliary means of rais-
i ing revenue we shall resort to certain special taxes, the burden of
which will fall more particularly
upon those members of the community who are best able to sustain   it.
To supplement our revenues to
the minimum amount regarded by
the government as necessary I shall
later introduce to the House a bill
entitled The War Revenue Act of
11115.
Supplementary   Taxes,
lis provisions "ill cover a levy of
special and general taxation as follows:
Upon all banks to which Ihe Bank
Act applies a yearly sum equal In
one per cent, upon the note circulation to be computed and paid quarterly. From this taxtion we shall
realize approximately one million
dollars.
Upon every trust and loan company Incorporated under any legislative authority and carrying on
business in Canada, a yearly sum
equal to one per cent, of its gross
income derived in Canada payable
quarterly.
Upon every insurance corporation,
society, association, firm or partnership, carrying on the business of insurance, other than life, fraternal
benefit and marine insurance, a sum
of one per cent, upon all net premiums received by it in Canada. Payments to be made quarterly.
The provisions of the bill will apply to business of the respective
banks, trust and loan and insurance
companies transacted after January 1, 1915, and the first receipts
therefrom will roach consolidated
revenue fund about May 1.
Tuxes on Cables.
In addition the following taxa-
Iion will be provided for:
Upon every cable and telegraph
company using telegraphic cables or
wires within tlie Jurisdiction of Canada a sum equal to one cent upon
each despatch or message originating in Canada for which a charge
of fifteen cents or more is imposed
Returns to be made quarterly.    The

any point in Canada, Newfoundland,

The railway or steamship company or person selling the railway

referred to are requested to collect
the taxes imposed and transmit to
the government.
Upon every person, firm or company carrying passengers by vessels
to ports or places other than ports
or places in Canada, Newfoundland,
the British West Indies and the
United States, in respect of each passenger the sum of one dollar if the
amount chargeable for the passage
exceeds ten dollars, the sum to be
three dollars if such amount exceeds
thirty dollars, and the sum of five

PRINCE RUPERT'S FISH
SUPERIOR TO OTHERS
Tho enlisting of men for the
Third Contingent is going on steadily. About fifty men have passed
their medical examination here to
serve at the front and others are
having denial work done to comply
with the qualifications. It Is the Intention to have tiie contingent leave
here a week from Friday next.
From interior points Major McMullin has received word thai a
large number are ready to come and
sign on. Hazelton has over a dozen
ready to serve. Terrace can send
five or six. Prince George has a good
number, but the exact quota has not
yet been ascertained there. The
Queen Charlottes also will send several.
The conditions are just  as exact
ing this time as for the previous
contingent. .Medical men have been
Instructed to exercise the greatest
care in Ihe choice of the troops, and
Dr. Tremayne Is therefore exercising due caution lest he be required
lo pay the expense of the return of
any who are rejected.

able to finance the war from the present date for another five
years, including thc assisting of the smaller allies, and on tiie
same basis France is able to finance for three years.

Recently the London Punch pub
lished a cartoon showing a deep
chested English rustic who had been
rejected by a recruiting sergeant onl
accounl of his bad teeth. Protesting,
so the legend goes, lie says: "Man
ye're inakkln' a great mistake. I
don't want to bite the Germans, I
want  to light, them."
Since the' war broke out, thousands of applicants have been refused by the recruit Ing sergeants on account of decayed or false teeth. To
most of them this seems rather hard,
rather too exacting. Other fallings,
they say, are more easily overlooked.

A CHRONIC  FAULT! INDER.
The News, believing that an election may be in sight, is wracking Us
brain to find fault with the Conservative party, which the Liberals hope
to hoodwink the electorate Into defeating. Its latest trouble is thai H.
S. Clements has not accomplished
what he sought in connection with
making this port a belter centre for
the halibut trade than it has been
under existing conditions. The News
now comes forward with the statement thai Mr. Clements is steadily
fighting for something in the fishing
line that he stood for and fought for
at Ottawa long before the News took
any interest in the subject. Those
Who know Mr. Clements know that
he will slay with his fight to the
last. He has strong hopes of winning his points, and the chronic
harpings of the News will in nowise
influence either the course of Mr.
Clements or the actions of the Government.
As an evidence that Mr. Clements
is able to get from the Department
what is of benefit to tho fishing industry we have fishermen getting
good catches of herring where It was
formerly prohibited grounds. In the
requests which the Member is making iu Ihe interests of the halibut
business there are international
points involved which the Government is slow lo act upon. The Government realizes the force of the
argumenl put up by Mr. Clements
and Ii le possible that the difficulties
will  be  overcome.

An  Englishman  serving with   the
French Foreign  Legion writes:
"One ai I of pluck 1 must relate.
Within a few feet in front of the
German trenches were two big
wheat stacks. Four men volunteered
to burn them—two Russians, one
French, one Englishman. About 2
a.m. orders passed along our line for
none to fire till ordered. Looking
through the loophole I saw tlie blaze,
and knowing nothing of the raid I
woke the sergeant and reported it
How that fire grew! It seemed that
the four, each with a bottle of paraffin, had successfully fired two stacks.
What a sight! The whole landscape
illuminated as by day, and it was
30 hours before tlie last embers died
out, and the four got back unhurt
through a tornado of bullets. The
icaptain shook hands with each.
"I shall not forget our return in
silence through the long trenches
nor the dawn, as we got well away,
red sky, slight snow on the ground,
all trees a lacework of frost, and
our dark column in the highroad,
now in column of four, strangely altered, nearly every man wearing a
wool helmet or 'passe montagne,' as
they call them, and multi-colored
mufflers, some with ruffs over their
shoulders and knapsacks, marching
In loose order, all dead fatigued, and
looking back in tlie columns on that
white ground how like it seemed tc
pictures of the retreat from Moscow,
for strange carts and tumbrils completed the picture. On our return we
passed through practically one great
battlefield, everywhere graves, in
twos, threes, tens or more, and when
we came to an extra large row lhe
command rang mil 'Presenter
armes,' and so we paid the tribute
ns  we inarched past."
The sale of Product No. 98 Is strictly
confined to the high-class supply
houses. Its cost of manufacture is
therefore not affeoted by Dept. or
"price cutting store" influence that

use of Inferior chemicals and processes. Nor is the dealer allowed to
reduce the retail price under penaltv
of   having   his   supply   terminated.

The tariff upon the articles exempted from the increased duties
will remain as at present. So far as
concerns the duty upon raw materials, It is to be pointed out that in

I under the provisions of the Customs
Act, manufacturers are entitled to a
drawback of 99 per cent, upon all
duties paid upon imported materials
used, wrought Into or attached io
articles manufactured In Canada
and exported therefrom,
Additions to Free List.
In addition to making the increases mentioned for-ihc purpose
of increasing revenue wo propose to
alter the existing tariff by adding
Bquid and nicotine sulphate lo the
free list. Squid is used as bail by
the fishermen, while nicotine sulphate is a spraying material used by
fruit growers for destroying insect
pests. These two items have for
some time been  noted for change.
The revenue obtained from tlie
proposed tariff changes will be separately shown in the trade and navigation returns of the Department of
Customs. By this we shall know the
precise amount collected through
the customs under the provisions of
tiie war revenue.
Upon the basis of importations for
the current year and having regard
to conditions which I have described as likely to prevail during the
coining year, we expect to realize
from our proposed customs tariff legislation from twenty to twenty-live
million  dollars.
These, Mr. Speaker, are the proposals of the government having as
their object the raising of additional
revenue rendered necessary by the
war and our participation therein as
a belligerent. We are not unmindful that they will entail a considerable financial burden upon the community. We believe, however, that
to adopt measures less comprehensive In their scope would be but to
temporize the situation with which
it is our duly to adequately cope.
That the people will cheerfully respond to the demands made upon
tlieir patriotism goes without saying. At tho outbreak of war it would
have been premature to have
brought forward measures which
today have been long foreseen by
public opinion to be necessary and
indeed inevitable, it would also have
boon most inopportune and inexpedient by reason of tlie profound dislocation or disorganization of business caused by the war .and Ihe
shock to financial stability which
the Dominion was so suddenly called
uimn  to  withstand.
Relieve Unemployment.
We believe tlie tariff increases
which we propose will be not only
effectual in producing greater revenue, but will be strongly efficacious
In stimulating Canadian industry
and agriculture and in relieving unemployment.
would involve a heavy expense as
compared with Ihe amount which
would be realized. Taking the income tax of the United States as a
basis, it would appear that Canada
could hardly expect to derive from
a similar tax a sum in excess of two
million dollars from which wc
would have to deduct the heavy expenses connected with its administration. My chic! objection, however, to an income tax is the fact
that the several provinces arc also
likely io be obliged lo resort to
measures for raising additional revenue, and 1 am of the view that the
Dominion should not enter upon the
domain to which they are confined to
a greater degree than is necessary
in the national interest. There is another feature of income tax which
makes it unsatisfactory for the purpose of Dominion finance. 1 refer to
the length of period whicli must
elapse before it becomes productive.

Increase iii   Customs   Duties.
As our main revenue measures we
propose with certain exceptions a
general horizontal increase in tlie
customs duties upon all goods and
commodities imported into or taken
out of bonded warehouses in Canada. The list includes all articles
hitherto dutiable or on the free list
and whether raw material or finished or partly finished products, The
Increase we propose is seven and a
half per cent, ad valorem to the general and intermedial" tariffs and five
per cent, ad valorem to the British
preferential. In the case of iron ores
1 shall give In committee the added
duly as specilic and not ad valorem.
In determining the list of exceptions
regard has been had to our trade
conventions with France and the
obligations of our agreement with
certain of the British Wesi India
colonies. By reason of the former,
tlie increased customs duties will not
apply to silk fabrics, velvets, ribbons, embroideries and certain
other goods.
