Mr. Dunning, amid cheers, showed that Can-I�'"'�',[;V( Quite a controversy has arisen at the city hall over an opinion given by City Solicitor Ball to tho effect that the city is entitled to collect the rents on property bought in by tho city at the recent tax sale. There is a difference ot opinion as to this procedure, but the city is preparing a list ot all Improved property bought In at the tax sale, and notices are being served on tho tenants that hereafter tho rent must'be paid to the city. Mr. Ball bases his claim on tho judgment in an Ontario case. It is thought likely that the owners ot some of this property will make a test case ot it to determine who shall havo tho rents durjng the redemption period, and tho Alberta courts will then set a precedent. Tho question is also asked whether tho city .would l^ave to return the rents collected on such property in case tho owner ot the property redeemed within tho stipulated period. Another question is whether, If the rerft collected by the city for one year exceeds the amount of taxes for which the property was sold to the city, tho rentals collected do not wipe off the tax debt, leaving tho property standing In tho owlior'a name.

The prime' minister, the message adds, was rpcolved by the Czechs with uproarious shouts and by thr Germans with louil applause. Speaking on the situa'tion in Austria-Hungary, Dr. Von Soydlor said: "The internal propaganda methods ot our onemy are so absiil-d that they only testify to their profound ignorance of our conditions. These arrows will rebound against our tin shakenblo devotion 'to the dynasty, the loyalty ot our citizens to Ihf state a:id the internal cohesion ;of our slate within the framework ot the mnnarciiy. "Wo ^OHld look cheerfully Into the future. Unity with bur loyal allies, wo shall be able to enforce tho end of the world war.

Mr. Dunning also remarked: "It is true that in certain areas ot the province the farmers are up against very considerable difficulties In their work ot Increasing production owing to the lack of moisture. I feol sure, however, that tho same Indomitable spirit .which has placed SaaRatchewan agriculture in its present proud position will enable present difficulties to be overcome. Tho Canadian soldier in Prance has a right to expect that the Canadian farmer will meet his difficulty and handicaps In the same spirit as tho soldier himself, must meet his, and further tlio soldier on the battlefield has the right to expect that tho farmer who loses hla crop by-droughts shall not render imposslblo the sowing ot that land tor 1919."
