T New York, Feb, 19.-In a forty-minute battle between a German U-boat and the French line steamship Cuyane off.' the coast of France on January 22 the submarine was sunk, according to officers of the freighter which arrived here today from Bordeaux. TheiGuyane was one day out from port. At 3.30 p.m. Captain Rousselot said the U-boat was sighted some distance to port and apparently endeavoring to cross the freighter's- bow in ord^er to stop her. The submarine fired a shot which fell short, and the Guyaue then turned sharply to starboard so that her big 65 millimetre gun, mounted at tbe stern,, could be trained on the approaching < �vessel; The submarine fired a second shot which fell considerably short, and the third struck the water close by the freighter. Meanwhile the Guyane's gunner had sent one shell Which failed to hit but struck very, near its qiark. Tb^e second shot from the Guyarie, Captain Rousselot said, hit the U-boat squarely and the under water boat was' seen to collapse. During the next thirty minutes the German craft appeared to be struggling for existence. No one appeared on the deck and no further attempt to shell the freighter was made, and the Guyane refrained from firing any more; shots. At the end of the half, hour the submarine disappeared.! Thet| freighter officers said they' had  no doubt but that the U-boat was lost. It Isn't going to cost any less to run. the clly in." 3,917 than it did in 1916." It dldn't^fjtk'e the commissioners long to find this out this morning once they had made a good start on the estimates for the year. Of course, the pruning hook hasn't been called into action yet and the final result may afford somejrelief, but,it doesn't, ldok much that .way.:, The school boards want more mon-1 ey. I The street railway deficit is being placed at $30,000 instead of $27,924 as, was the case last year. I � There lias-been.;a'.general salary in-! crease in the way of a war bonus all' round. j These are a few of the reasons why the tax burden isn't going to be any: lighter. - : -ii j Commissioner Freeman explained that the increase'in the street rail-, way deficit could be charged to the: fact, that the wage increase would; amount to $1200 whiile debenture in- i terest . would make'' an additional I charge of "$150t). Jfejexpects the earn-1 Ings ,to remain about the same in spite of the fact that few soldiers are quartered at Henderson Park. The city council is placing in the estimates this y'jB/ar $750 for the.pur-i chase of a Ford'ambulance and also1 $740 -for the purchase of a mine fanj and housing for the city mine. j Another item of expenditure this j year will be $1200 set aside for the; Khaki league. Of tjiis $50 per month 1 Is'to go toward the salary of the secretary, while the remainder is for the rent of club quarters for the returned soldiers and other incidental expenses. U. S.
