ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR For tlie third time the British coast has been attacked by German war-ehips. A batUo cruiser squadron, with auTiliorles. appeared off Lowestoft Tuesday morning, and commenced to shell the town, but were driven off in 20 minutes by British naval force?. Little damage was done by the Germans. None of the ships were sunk. British war vessels conducted a hot bombardment of German positions on the Belgian coast doing great damage to docks, and other works, at Zee-brugge. British airships aided in the attack. More Russian troops have been landed in France, and are proceeding Into training near the front. The British conducted a successful raid on the Turkish camp at the Suez canal. Both French and Britisli claim successes in the fighting at Verdun within the past day or two. In an air raid over the Norfolk and Suffolk coast on Tuesday, the Oer-mans dropped 70 bombs but did littie damage. at was to make it more proAtablo for the taxpayer to pay his taxes than to invest the money otherwise. The council's idea was to add one per cent, per month-up to 12 per cent.-on taxes not paid on the duo date, ^\^llch, to our way of thinking, was a perfectly common sense idea. Such a plan would work a hardship on no one, but would be an incondvp to pay taxes before the interest bill rolled up too high. The Herald believes there should be some uniform system of tax penalties in this province. Kvory city has one of its own, and each Is a little more crazy than the Inst. Every year a batch of charter amendments goes to Kdmonton to be dealt with, all of the same character. Why not follow the general rule as It obtains in the majority of cities in the western States. T.ixes arc- levied at par and may be paid at that llguro up till the duo date. The day after the due date, 'live por cent, is added as a penalty. :.Vt the end of six nionlhs, if unpaid, j mother five per cent, is added, and so on. At the end of a definite period a tax sale must be held. I'ntil a dcll-nite plan is instituted in thi.-s province there will always bo trouble over delinquent taxes. It is time for a change.

The DELINQUENT TAXES IN WESTERN CITIES De;inquent taxes are the bane of the western municipal officer's life. If property owners knew what mental agony outstanding taxes produce among the mayors, aldermen, city treasurers and other municipal officers, there would be such a rush for the treasurers' wickets as the west has never seen. But, strange to relate, ratepayers refuse to visualize the sorrow ot their city officials and tlie delinquent tax list, like the poor. Is always with ,us. Edmonton Is in a stew about the tax sale question. Edmonton shouldn't worry. All her sister cities in the west are In the same stew. Calgary Is tliere along with the rest. Lethbridge isn't in so deep as some ot the rest, but we have our own troubles. So when one city rises and slaps another on the wrist for employing usurous methods of tax gathering. It produces a ripple of laughter all along the line. The Calgary Kews-Telegram would have us believe that the delinquent tax payer is an extinct specie? in that burg when it comes at us with the following; "Lethbrldg-9 has requested permls-Bion from the Albarta legislature to ImpoBU a tax Interest rate ot 12 per cent, on taxes arrears- This 1* an exorbitant . demand, vhlch would really amount to confiscation by the municipality of many ot the properties on which back taxes are owing. No private individual who has been lorcad to allow his taxes to fall behind could afford to pay a twelve per cent, rate, and consequently his land and buildings would fall into the pos-Besslou ot tho city ot Lethbridge. Lethbridge ashamed to make this request. It sets a bad example to usurers by engaging in this practice. If it wished to make a clean-up on back taxes, the best method ot doing this la to allow a liberal discount tor a certalii period. This would encourage the payment ot taxes, whereas the twelve per cent would discourage payment. Common sense and common decency should bo exercised by the western municipalities that And the taxes arrears becoming unduly large. But we forgive the Calgary newspaper knowing that It does not understand the situation here. The Lethbridge commlBslonera had no intention "When applying for the amendment to the charter, ot adding 13 per cent, to taxes already in arrears. In tact wo believe our city council would be glad . to give 20 per, cent, discount on out-otandlng taxes'if tliat would coax the deUnquents to pay up. . .;Whftt council was aiming Fire destroyed Iowa Uuion. :i dormitory building tor the men students of the University ot Iowa, and tbreat-, ... f�'' a time to destroy the entire most moving recruiting appeals that business district ot the city.

He would not speak the word, and as a consequence the military district of Quebec has enlist-; ed in eighteen months 5396 men. The male population of twenty-three counties complementary to Quebec city is given in the census as 322.941.' "This appeared, ot course, in the Toronto News. No other newspaper in Canada would be capable of so  cowardly a stab at Sir Wilfrid Laurier. I The first and chiefest ambition of this detestable sheet has been to make the war serve its selfish purposes-to aid in its revenges and to help forward its unceasing campaign for the glori- � fication ot the party leaders whom it, worships. For Sir Wilfrid Laurier the' News entertains a more than mortal  hatred (the reasons for which are known to all familiar with Canadian political affairs tor the past twenty years); and, whatever the coat to national unity, It is determined to find In war conditions in Canada some-' thing with which to teed this ancient grudge.
