CoOp and Income Tax
Co.-Op." and Income Tax. I TRADERS' PROTEST. The autumn meeting of the Executive Council of the National Chamber of Trade was held on the 30th ult. at Oxford. The Chairman, in his address, said they, as traders, had to do their share in bringing the war to a successful issue.He specially urged the need of government by business men on business lines. Members of Parliament might very well decline to take their (salaries during the period of hostilities, and, in regard to the income tax the burden should be imposed more equally and certain classes of the com- munity ought no longer to receive benefits for which they did not pay. He counselled the delegates to impress upon their associations the crying need for collective action. The Pre-klent of the Chamber (Mr Walsh aw) moved a resolution assuring the Prime Minis- ter and the Government and our Allies of the Chamber's determination to support by all legitimate means in its power the struggle for the maintenance of the cause of liberty and ustice. mad congratula ting the Army and Navy transport, food supply, and other services. 1 he mover said we had had successes on a scale far beyond anything we had expected during the past two or three months. The. Govern- ment were to be congratulated on the way -in which food prices had been regulated and the finances of the country preserved from chaos. The motion was agreed to. Mr J. W. Clark (chairman of the Parlia- mentary Committee moved the following:- "That this Chamber congratulates the Chan- cellor of the Excheuer on the reduction of the income tax exemption limit to £ 130, and sug- gests that it might with advantage he further lowered if the tax on sugar and tea is re- duced. This Ghaimber deeply regrets the con- tinued injustice that Co-operative. Societies' reserves are not taxed and urges that this be remedied. This Chamber also urges that close investigation he made by the authorities into the war profits of Co-operative Societies. The officers. of the Chamber protested against the withdrawal of the half-penny post on the introduction of the Budget, and this Chamber confirms their action and respectfully urges its retonation." The mover considered that some existing inequalities were intensified in the present Budget, and lie described the position of cer- tain societies now enjoying exemption as ab- solutely dishonest. Institutions which would not fchoulder their legitimate responsibilities were neither patriotic nor philanthropic. The resolution was earned. After a motion had been adopted declaring that officials of public authorities ought not to be allowed to act as managers, directors, agents, or partners in any business which was in competition with the ratepayers or the public interest. Mr Pratt (Bradford) moved. that "This Council, whilst heartily approving of the Government's action in advising thrift and economy so that money may be available for prosecuting the war. protests against some of the methods adopted by the War Savings Committee, especially the policy of discontinu- ing the purchase of particularly specified goods. This Council is further of the opinion that the Government w fluId best secure the end the Committee has in view by examples of economy, the initiation of which in many Government Departments would inspire re- spect and imitation by the community. The resolution was passed. LAW OFFICERS' SALARIES. Mr H. G. Murdoch (Plymouth) moved that "the fact recently disclosed in Parliamentary debate that the salaries of the law officers of the Grown in 1914 amounted to the enormous sum of t37.000. of which one officer received £ 21.000 calls for emphatic protest by the com- mecrial community against such a lavish ex- penditure of public money." Remarking on the salaries iiid perquisites of the law officers he said the public were often toicl that those gelllthemen could make more money at pri- vate practice, "but," said the speaker. "I hae me doots. Let them do so, and we will be content with the next best man at zC5,000 a year." The Attorney General's receipt worked out at £ 400 a week, or t20 an hour all the year round whether lie was asleep or awake. The motion was adopted. DINNER HOUR CLOSING. Aresollutilon was also passed that in view of the fact that counter-attendants and other shop workers are greatly diminished in num- ber in consequeeuce of the war, and Chat it has become an obvious necessity to economise thelir labour, this Chamber recommends shop- keepers throughout the kingdom to close their shops daily from 1.15 to 2.15 p.m., where practicable, and invites the public to support the movement.
i WardRoom Gamble
Ward-Room Gamble. A thrilling s-torv of British daring is told in "Blackwood's Magazine' It is a detailed narrative "by one who took part" in the destructio nof the British submarine E 15 in the Dardanelles last April. The submarine had run ahore in lvephez Bay, and. as it was regared as most important that she should not fall into the enemy's hands, orders were gilven for her destruction. Var- ious attempts ha;villg tailed, it was decided that two picket-boats from the Triumph and the Maes-tic, with volunteer crews, should try to torpedo the sti-anded vessel. How the attempt succeeded is graphically told by the officer in charge of the Triumph's picket-boat who modestly signs lvimself "Arthur B.-G." It was looked upon as almost certain death to take small steamboats right under the enemy's guns and into water every inch of which was covered by powerful searchlights, hut so keen were 'B.-W." and a brother officer to be in the forlorn hope that tlicy actually threw dice to decide their rival claims. "We each won one throw amid some excitement in the mess. and then V threw four tens, wine hi easily beat with four aces." The expedition stated soon after nightfall. Wiieii the Tiumph's picket-boat, which was leading, was still three or four miles from her objective the beam of a search light fell upon her. and henceforward she was subjected to almost constant fire from the Turkish batteries. By the time she had reached the neighbourhood of the stranded submarine olglit searchlights were trained on her. It was the Majestic's boat which succeeded in torpedoing the submarine, and this after she had been struck by a. shell under the waterline and when she was going down. With projectilts flashing all around her the Triumph's boat went to the assistance of her sinking consort and succeeded in rescuing, as was thought at the time, all on board. But as we steamed round agaJin preparatory to heading out, we saw a man crawling out off the other boat's stern-sheets. He had been forgotten in the hurry of the moment, It looked like suicide to go back, but of course we could not leave him there, so manoeuvred close again and shouted to him to get into the water and swim towards us, which he did and we hauled him' into the boat uncon- scious." Then the picket-boat was turned towards the open sea. She steamed away at half- speed. though still under heavy fire. "We did not like to go full speed, as we thought it would shake up the wounded man too much" The poor fellow had had his legs crushed by the shell which struck his boat, and he died on the way down the Straits. W hen "B.W." got back to the Triumph, bus captalin "was very nice about it all, and also said lm had not. expected to see us again,"

WEATHER AND THE CROPS
WEATHER AND THE CROPS. Drying easterly winds during September kept the mean tempera-tue down and wera altogether beneficial to new crops, whether to their actual harvestisg in the North or to their state when stacked in the South. Sam- ples at markets showed great improvement from August's later exchanges. There ia some difficulty .about barley heating in stack owing to the amount of clover, etc., that had1 to be stacked with it. a result of the rapid growth of the undercrop during the 6howery July and early August. The rains whiclil came at the end of the month were timely for starting the germination of trifolium, rye and othe rearly September sowings.—From Monday's "Mark Lane Express."
