BRITISH INCOME TAX
The Editor Daily News.
Dear Sir:- There will no doubt be a considerable number of your readers interested to know the recommendations of the Royal Commission on the Income Tax which have recently been published in so far as they affect those who come within the term "non residents" and possibly entitle such person who have British Income to some reduction from the highest rate in force.
According to the present law no persons who are residence outside the United Kingdom are entitles to any rebate of British Income tax unless they can bring themselves within certain well defined expressions such as (a) Crown Service, (b) Ex-Crown Service (C) Widows of Ex-Crown Servants, (d) Missionaries (e) Resident abroad for reasons of health (f) Residence in the Isle of Man or the Channel Island. The Royal Commission have recommended that any relief that would be granted to a British subject resident in the United Kingdom should equally be granted to a British subject residence abroad, and that the relief should be calculated by relation to real total
Income (including foreign and colonial Income), any relief given being in the proportion that the Income subject to United Kingdom Income Tax bears to the total Income at the effective rate that would be charged if the total Income (including income not subject to United Kingdom Income Tax, but computed as far as possible as it would be if were so subject), were assessable in this country.
NEWFOUNDLANDERS LOST ON TRAWLER
Two Newfoundlanders, Michael DRAKE, of St. Lawrence, and F. TIPPLE of this city, belonging to the crew of the Nova Scotia steamer trawler M. F. B are missing and believed lost since the sinking of that ship off Halifax a fortnight ago.
The M. F. B. left Liverpool N. S. on Monday afternoon, March 29th, for the Banks. Arriving on the Banks she met with success until the following Monday, when she left the Banks for Halifax to take on bunker coal. About 80,000 pounds of fresh fish were on board. the results of the six days fishing. About 5.30 p.m. Monday, when she was 35 miles from Halifax the trawler was found to be leaking aft. Immediately the pumps were put into use and it was found that they could not control the incoming water. An attempt was also made to bale the water out, with no success. Towards 8 o'clock the water the water reached the engine room putting out the fires out, and continued rising. Capt. KRAMP then decided that it was useless to stand by the ship, as he did not think she would remain afloat another two hours. Preparations were made to abandon the trawler. Two lifeboats were launched, as well as the dory, food and rockets being placed in them.
Before leaving the ship between 8.30 and 8.45 o'clock efforts were made by flares and rockets to attract attention of other craft, and when his men took to the boats the trawler's decks were almost awash. The weather began to become stormy and the three boats hauled away, and headed for land. In each of the two lifeboats there were eight men, Capt. KRAMP being in charge of one, and First Officer TURNER of the other, the four men leaving in a dory. The three boats kept together for several hours and Capt. KRAMP says that he last saw the other lifeboat about ten o'clock. She has not since been heard of and is given over for lost. The two Newfoundlanders above named were aboard her. Another Newfoundlander John BURTON of St. Lawrence was a member of the crew, but he was saved.

A fatal accident occurred here on Thursday last, when John NORTHOVER, a resident of the place was shot by the accidental explosion of a gun. In company with his brother and uncle, he was fishing about six miles from his home, and in moving the gun in his boat, the trigger caught in some object, the discharge entering his right lung and arm. First aid was rendered by Mr. RYAN and on arrival at his home, almost two hours later. Doctor RENDELL, who happened to be visiting, did all that was possible and ordered the injured man to hospital. He left here about three p.m. in Mr. J. V. McCARTHY's motor boat, which was en route by another having on board Rev. Father SAVIN who chanced to be coming here, and the last rites were immediately administered. On arrival of the injured man at Placentia, Sergeant KENT and Mr. T. P.

THIS MORNING'S FIRE AT KING'S ROAD JOHN FRENCH, WELL KNOWN CITIZEN, ALMOST BURNED TO DEATH
John FRENCH, well known as a nautical instructor, and son of the late Capt. J. FRENCH was almost burnt to death at his home, 32 King's Road at 1 o'clock this morning. His condition was so bad when rescued from the dwelling that Priest had to be called to offer spiritual help and also a medical doctor. At 1.30 Mr. FRENCH was conveyed to the General Hospital in the ambulance and at press hour the News was informed that his recovery was very doubtful.
From what can be learned it appears that the old man who had been living alone in a downstairs flat in King's Road for several years, was lying awake on the couch reading, a lighted kerosene lamp, resting on a chair close by, affording light. In an attempt to draw the lamp nearer he capsized it, the fuel spilling over the scant bed clothing which covered him igniting. The old gentlemen made an outcry which attracted Mr. Patrick MURRAY who lives in the flat above. The latter hurried to his assistance and when he forced an entrance he found FRENCH lying on the floor, his clothing a mass of flame. Murray, as quickly as he knew how, extinguished the burning clothing and carried the old gentleman to the hallway. In the meantime several persons who were standing near the top of King's Road were approached by the noise and hurried to the scene. Two of the number, Messrs C. BYRNE and C. SPURRELL found the old gentleman postrate in the hallway and immediately removed him to the water shed a few yards distance and summoned Rev. Dr. CARTER and Dr. MacPHERSON by phone, both of whom responded in a few minutes. An alarm had been sent to the central station in the meantime and the fire apparatus was soon on hand. The fire however was not of a serious character and was quenched with the aid of the chemical engine. While the firemen were at work Doctor McPHERSON attended to the injured man and did all possible to alleviate his suffering while Rev. Dr. CARTER offered spiritual consolation and prepared him for death. Mr. FRENCH did not appear to be suffering though he was terribly burned about the abdomen and legs, scarcely a sign of flesh being left on the bones. He retained consciousness however while being treated by the doctor and up to the time he was taken into the ambulance to be conveyed to the hospital, where he now lies in a dying condition.
The unfortunate man was widely known in the east end of the city and for many years taught navigation and a general school in that section. In early life he followed the sea and retired owing to an accident in which he met with serious bodily injury. For some years, against the wishes of many friends, he has been living alone, and for more than a year has been practically unable to get about owing to infirmities, and when the kerosene lamp toppled over this morning he was unable to save himself.
FOUND DROWNED ON TOPSAIL BEACH
BLUE PUTTEE RE-UNION
The menu was served in the style that the well known hostelry "Smithville" is famous for, Miss FURLONG and her aids doing everything for the enjoyment of all present.
Lt.-Col CARTY was chairman, and under his guidance the re-union was carried through successfully. During the evening he read messages from Lt. Col. PATERSON and Capt. T. CONNORS, both of whom regretted their enforced absence from the celebration. After the supper had been thoroughly enjoyed an impromptu concert followed Songs were rendered by Major MARCH and BUTLER and TAIT. Capts. J. SNOW and G. G. BYRNE, Lieut. IRVING, Sergt. MORRISSEY, P. O. Mike SMYTH, Tom NOSEWORTHY and G. JACKMAN; recitations by Capt. H. McNEILL and Sergt. Major F. P. LeGROW. The evening was brought to a fitting close at 11:30 by the National anthem.
