This was'tlecideil at a meeting of the city council this morning which was attended by the hotel keepers. They demurred at paying quite so high a license, but. it was finally agreed that the Lethbridsc. Alexandra. Dallas and Coaldalo should pay $100 each, the Arlington and the Paris ?50 each and the Windsor $2.i. Don't Need Another Hotel Incidentally the hotelkeepers told the city council that all the talk of the city needing another hotel was boih. that the established hotels are not making nearly the money some people think and that thoy should not be asked to pay too hfgh a license. Board of Trade ^ The council also decided that the cost of printing the annual report of the hoard ot trade should be borne as usual. The cost will be ia the neigh-horhood of S3.50. Mayor Hardle was inclined to demur owing to the fact tiiat tho board of trade had raised the secretary's salary $25 a month at itB annual meeting, indicating that the board/appeared to be iible to pay for Its oTvn printing. Commlslonor Pree-inan. however, thought the city received a great . deal more good from the board of trade than the amount of money it cost and therefore the coat of the printing should be paid viithoat protest. Hospital Bud^t. The Gait Hospital budget for 191S ihows requirements of t^.OOO from the city. The request was referred to the finance department and it acceded to win be includ_ed in the estimates.

Toronto, Jan. 21.-Conditions oxlsl-ing on all ot the battle fronts at this plarlod of tho war make it absolutely mpii.ssiblo for any of the allied commanders or the general staffs of the oht,ento natloni! to say with any de-gr.eo of accuracy what is likely to oc-ciir in tho various thoatros of activity within tho next three months. Such is the statement of Right Hon. sir Frederick Smith, attorney-general for England, who arrived In tho city lest nights Canadians' Reputaton i"\ have, been enormously struck by the oiitliuslaara of the people ot Am-oWca," ho said. "All over they are bBg'.nning to real'ze what this war really mean.s. I noticed. the Immense prestige the Canadians have gained in America through tho actions ot her trooiis. I don't think the reputation of tho Canadians has over stood as high in America as it does today." Discussing the matter of deporting resideiits of allied countries to fight with their home armies. Sir Frederick sold it was impossible to say what vfcuUl bo done with Russians In England because ot the incalculnblo post-till!, that at present pI�vaij.^ in Uus-sJa. J.Ie knew ot, none being deported. It has been often stated that one of the purposes of Sir Frederick's visit to tho ITn'ted States was to arrange for the rounding up of Brltlsih subjects for the army. Ho said that an act had been passed'by the British ptirliament giving tho government power to enter into conventions with the allies to have tho'jr subjects serve.
