The question has arisen during dis- cussion of the free hospital question on which the citizens will pass on Tuesday next, whether the revenue lost by making the hospital free should be made up by taxation on the as- sessment of the city or by a special head tax on all persons over 21 years of age. How to make up for the lost revenue is the whole crux of the free hospital question, and this is the point the citizens should study. Tlie amount of revenue lost is ex- pected to be about Ili.GOO.

"We would rather not recruit farm-i crs and miners. They are of more use to the Empire here." The Herald has that remark from other recruit- Ing agents.
