He has asked City Solicitor HaU for hi? opinion on this matter, and .Mr llnll lias proHii.-ied to givo it ill writiiig: at 3 jtpecial meeting of the! to be held on Tuesday raom-iiiK. The ait ion of the city of Medicine Hat Is i)arily responsible tor this re-i-onsiilerution of the lax sale scheme. I; will be renienibereil that several months ago Medicine Hat conimeuced a ta.\: sale, but after advertising the property in arrears, kept postponing [lie s-.ilf from time to time, finally giving ,ii up. In the meantime ar-rangenilnts were made to sue the oH'uer.o of the properly -ivho are in arrears of taxes, and notices of these suits are now being issued by counsel for tht> municipality. The opinion is given by Mr. Ball that if a suit is .started and is successful, and Judgment is signed a'gainst the owner of thf' property-, the judgmen'. stands against the property of the owner anywhere iii the jirovince. By the adoption 01 this metliod it might be pofoible to collect the taxes 011 much property which would otherwise revert to the city at a tax sale. , However as stated above, there is apsolutoJy nothing definite as ye�: in the proposal, though tomorrow mav tell the tale.

Whereas the annual gain of population in Germany and Austria-Hungary hat given place to a serious loss, the peoples of the entente have suffered very small In comparison. Great Britain's total population has so far remained at about the same figures, gains balancing losses. The rate of Increaee in the C-nlted States has not been affected at all. .4s the war goes on this growing disparity in the losses of population between the Central Powers and the peoples fighting them Is likely to Increase. If the war goes on Into next year, the population of the German empire, on which reliance was placed for the enlargement of Germany's proeperity and industry and for repairing the injury to trade and commerce after the war, will have lost ten per cent of the numbers and a still greater proportion of its Industrial strength. The German empire which in June, 1919 should have 72,000,000 people will have no more than (14,500,000. Germany, as a whole, will have five per cent. less population than when the war began. Of those that have been killed, the greater number were men in the prime of life and energy, whom Germany could least spare. By deaths in the battle zone the German empire has lost at least three million. The birth rate has sunk to such a figure that by next year the number of births will have fallen short of what they would have been baU there been no war by three and a third million of children. In the same period the annual number of deaths among th& German population has, owing to the stress and anxiety of the -war and of elckneas and disease which have been aggravated by hardships and food troubles, increased by one mlllloa more than the norma]. Meanwhile, despite the losses which Kngland has suffered in the war zone, the -British population has been growing. By the middle of 1919 this population will be only three per cent lower than it would have been wUhout war. Great Britain In 1919 will have a larger population than in 1914, NAILS HUN I^IE ON HOSPITAL SHIPS Madrid, June 3.-German newa-papera having aatarted that Brl-tiah and French hoapital ahlpa ar� being uaed for the transpor-tatltn of munltlona of war, tha Spaniah minlater of foreign af-falra haa iaaued an official note declaring than an enquiry made by the government enables It to affirm that British, French and Italian veaaela employed aa hoapital thipa, on board of which are Spaniah naval delegatea. are being employed In a perfectly correct manner and excluaiively for the tranaport of wounded and sick, NEW SHIPYARDS RISING IN BRITAIN I GERMANMAIENI London, June 3.-(Via Reutera Limited.)-An official report on the treatment of prisoners of war *as published Saturday. It snys that on April'11, the report of Sir Robert Youngor's committee revealed a tew of the mosi outstandln.e; examples of German Inhumanity and broken faith, Keferrlug particularly to broaches of agreement, that prisoners should not be employed within thirty kilos of the firing line, the report saye that since the issue of Sir Robert's report there has nceumulatod a long list of atrocious violations of this agreement. In the face of this atrocious treatment by Germany of British prisoners that tall into their hands, .the Germans themselves have had the effrontery to accuse the British of Inhumanity In the treatment of German prisoners. In February last, a semi-official statement appeared in the German press that German prisoners taken from England to France in November, 1917, to be Interned in Switzerland - were transported on a cattle sttjamei' under inhuman conditions. The real facts of the case are that German pri-eoners had precisely the same accommodation as provided for British officers and'men who have frequently travelled In the ship In Question. A portion of the ship Is titled for the transport of horses, hut no prisoners were piit^ou this dei'k. German Inhumanity. On the other hand there Is an overwhelming mass of properly authenticated evidence of barbarous treatment of British prisoners by Germans. One man captured on the morning of March 2S. IStlS. was made to work for two hours liumediRiely after being .(aUen prisoner, serving a German field gun with amnuinltion and digging out a position for it under 43rl-lish fire. In one German working party British warrant offl�;ers, noncommissioned officers and Royal Army Medical Corps men were made to work on roade and light railroads under shell fire and \vero knocked about with rifle butts or sticks. One man was beaten as he lay on the ground groaning. Many men working behind the lines died of weakness," When fresh batches of prisoners were captured they 'WDre kept working behind the lines Instead of being sent to reglatorod camps. One man died In a hut and the body was left for three days before being removed. RESIGNATION IS IN Will Arrange For Election Soon -Three-Cpdidates Are Mentioned Commissioner A. M. Grace'i resignation reached the city council table at Us regular meeting this morning, aud warf accepted with regret. Mr. Grace stipulated that the resignation take effect on June 30th. At a special, meeting to be held tomorrow morning, the council will arrange for the election which will be necessary to till the -vacancy In the department of public works aeat at the council table. City Solicitor Ball advised the council this morning that, If the meeting is hold tomorrow, notice of rtomlnntion can be given and nominations held on June llth, and the election on Tuesday, Juno 18th. So far only three names of po�-.sible candidates are mentioned. These are William Oliver, ex-mayor and ex-alderman, who offers to serve out the unexpired 18 months of Commr. Grace's term without . pay, Donald Duff, city clerk, and J. F. Hamilton, e.x-alderman. Another name Is being mentioned, but the Herald has not been given authority by the party to make It public. However, It is fairly certain that at least three candidates win go to the post.
