The statement Issued by Mr. McCombe raya: -With reference to the Wilson-Harvey Incident It seems to me that Colonel Wat terson has said la a statement all that needs to be said. It appears, therefore, that as far back as last October he him self suggested to Governor Wilson that Colonel Harvey's support through Har per's Weekly might be Injudicious, and ho probably told Colonel Harvey httnself the sunt thing. It appears that Colonel Wattereon had coprlnced the governor of the truth of bis opinions, and had at leant convinced Colonel Harvey of. the probability of Its truth, else Colonel Har vey would not have propounded the V!--Uon.

All corporations .-honing a profit of over .'," per annum are taxable, and (he corporations, large and small, have from January I to March 1 In which to file a report. Up to the first of the year there wera nearly l.SM who had not made returns for lttv, but by threatening to sue for the" maximum penalty Ihla number has dwindled to . fifty-eight.

A number have compromised and It is pot to late yet for these fifty-eight, but when once suit Is started the full penalty of $19, will be asked for In each case. 'These reports must be filed, and al though' It Is- too late to' escape punish ment for delinquency, the government will give the opportunity to compromise before the case- Is taken to court." Some of the corporatiorsr against which suits will be started have become bank rupt or disorganised, and still others are concerns which have not made the SMOQ profit.' These, however, will hare to stand for punishment, for tbe law says that the report muat be tiled whether a profit Is made or not, or whether the concern breaks up or dissolves. Dcllaaaeat List.
