LATE CORKESPoNDENCE FURNISHING COMMITTEE OF THE HANNAH STREE r SCHOOL. TO THE EDITOR UF THE BAKKY HERALD." Sip.Frutn the accounts of the meeting of the Barry School Board held on the 7th inst, it is clear that the appoinrn.ent of the above Committee took place at some distant and uncertain date, and that the Committee were not empowered to spend monpy, the Board having the selection ef goods." Nf\ d. ubt information could have been given the Be rd as to tht date of the appointment of the Committee. To my knowledge ib was in existence in October, 1898, if not before, because in that month, whether they were empowered to do so or cot, they ordered desks from Glasgow nrm and had them delivered at the Intermediate School. The Deputy Clerk of the School Board lent me a paper to sign M receiver of the goods, whieh v..s headed .C HaIlDah-atr.cet School Account." Or coolie, no information was ever vouchsafed to me as te'the terms of the arrar> jemenr made between Mr Lowdon as Chairman of the Furnishing Com- mittem-of Hannah-srreet School and Mr Lowdon as Chairman of the Intermediate School Manages. Evidently Dr O'Donnell, though a member of the School Board and of the Intermediate Board, does not know. Still the fact remains that if the Committee were not empowered to spend money," they exceeded their powers fifteen months ago. 1 cannot let this opportunity pass without a word on the suhj«ct of the Chairmanship of the Board. The educational policy that has been pursaed by the domin-nt p:.rty in the past has had the fifcrce light of publicity thrown upon it, and stanch condemned. The young people who are being trained to fulfil the duties of citizenship in the near future naturally watch the proceedings of the educational bodies and it ought to be possible for the conscientious teacher to point to them as modeLe of what public bodies should he. I trust. therefore, that the members will rise to the occaafen and will choose in the place of Mr Lowdon a mari,ho will see that justice, righteousness, and troth characterise the actions of the educational authorities of the town, and thus raise the tone of its public life. Yours faithfully, 17, St. Alban's-road, H. R. NORRIS. 'Harlesden, N.W. INCOME-TAX REPAYMENTS. TOOTHS EDITOR OF THE "BARRY HERALD." Sir,—As most of your readers who are engaged in business are now ascertaining the amount of their profits for the year 1899, will you allow us to remind them that, if such profits show a diminution. tk-y may be entitled to the re-payment of a con- siderable portion of the Income-tax paid in respect' of the fjikme. "Many submit to overcharges, having failed < n previous occasions to get their asg. sam, nts reduced In most cases the reason why they have failed 'úJ that they have not furnished proper accouifhi, while many have neglecttd to keep any accounts of thetr busin, as transactions. If proper accounts be kept, or even if a proper cash acoount be presented (which is very simple by using the Tax-p^ysfs' Cash Book,") hete is but little difii- eul y in establishing a claim. Thod.,ands of people pay taxes for which they are net, liable, more paiticulnrly those whose incomes are derived from property and investments where tax is deducted before being paid to the recipients, or when dividends are paid "fiee of Ji come Tax." Abatements are DOW allowed in cases hrre the total income does not exceed £700, as fo lows :—Incomes of 9160 exempt: 9400, abate- meat €160; 500. abatement E150 £ 600, abate- ment 120; 9766, abatement £70. Where the income of the current financial year has all been leceived, claims* can, in many cases, now be made for four years, and the sum re-payable might, in the case of private incomes alone, exceed 142, to say nothing of tax allowed in respect ef life insurance premianis, even when the income exceeds £700.. We shall be glad to advise any of your reader*, gratuitously, whether they can make a claim for re-payment, if they send us full particu- lars ot. their incomes and a stamped addressed envelope.—Yours faithfully, THE INCOM E-TAX ADJUSTMENT AGENCY 12, and 13, Poultry, London, E.C. December 28th, 1899.
