Aid. Skeith moved for a reconsideration of the matter, as he believed that the assessor's recommendations "to "follow out the single tax schedule should be adopted. Aid. Williamson believed that the city could afford'to step aside for this year and make no change, although he favored single tax. 1 Mayor Hardie was of the same-opinion. x Aid. Skeith said he could see n� reason why the assessors recommendations should not be carried out provided the necessary assessment could be obtained by that method, and he had beard the assessor say that it could.

Ex-Aid. W. H. Judd, a Hamilton soap manufacturer, is dead, aged 73. London, Jan. 13.-^-"Punoh," Britain's official comic .paper, as it has been satirically described, is to have a rival. A seTlous rival, too, If the word serious'may be admitted In this connection, the new venture will be for its promoter is Lord Northcliffe, the chief of the great English octopuslike publishing house, whose tenacles have fastened themselves even on the Times, who founded tbte' Daily Mail and who has just celebrated the completion of Fleetway'House, the largest building in .the world tTevoted to publishing purposes, for the accommodation of a. tremendous group of magazines and. periodicals ranging from the London Magazine to th�e Half Penny Marvel. T-hVre is an interesting; story Indeed behind Lord North-cliff e's decision to establish a paper directly challenging. Punch for the position of England's premier humorous paper. . �' ' .' *" � - Jn one ef its brilliant flashes of mordant humor, Punch referred uproariously to "Linesman," a valued military contributor to the Dally Mali, who, ;Wi'ite dally In the paper on the war"�situation' .in.iithe -Balkans, as "Penny-a-Llnesman." A few days lat- er Linesman, writing in the Daily Mail, was permitted to mleution incidentally- that there was a time Tyhen Punch was written by gentleman for gentlemen but now it was written by men of letters 'we must natarally look for a change in it, etc., etc. That put an end to Lord North-cllffe's known attitude of critical consideration of Punch's presumed impregnability. He ibegan to take steps. He settled down to a really. serious consideration of Punch, and it is fairly obvious that hie spent some time in going through its flies for he decided that it was not really a humorous pa. per. He confided what little doubts he had on this head to a contributor who writes occasional articles in the Daily Mall under the caption "The Letters of an Englishman," and this contributor's opinion of Punch was made known to the great British public-a day or two later, through the.medium of an article on the editorial page of the Baily Mail, entitled "The Decay; of Humor."
