Hayward, M.L.A., for Cowichan, B.C., will resign his seat In the Legislature because ot criticism of his absence from his constituency. He is on overseas service. The Government of South Africa has decided to augment by a shilling a day aa from April 1, the allowances o wives and dependents of South Af-I Tican soldiers now serving outside tlie I'nion. ^ The following is" a copy of the Mayor's-letter to the -city council THE ATTACKS ON ' , . i which has-'brought about the recon- �rup V M r I : aijgration of the tax'8_ale question.

One returned officer | ,^3^ to respect him a� a strong and fearless nev.spaper who has been wounded on active ser-ylcB, declares most ot the kickers are men W-bo never saw France and they are simply ''peddling a grouch."' Sir John Gibson, former lieutenant gov,-ernor of Ontario, and a military officer ot note, who has just returnafl from France says the veterans who ere making attacks on the Y.M.C.A. iiave been misled by jealous detractors. The Alberta Veteran advises veterans not to talk against the Y.' M.C.A. unless they can prove what they say. That's good advice. The Y. MiQ.A.'e not perfect, but most of the returned men, and the men who are pow at the front, speak highly of its wrk, and we are prepared to accept the opinion of the majority rather tihau the minority, who may liave some petty prejudice or who may be "peddling a grouch," as the officer ne-/er attemo.ed to serve his own ends, but was always fighting what he honestly ponsidered to be the battle of the common people. John Ross Robertson was a self made man. The Toronto Telegram was made by John Ross Robertson and so was that institution ho loved and endowed, the Hospital for Sick Children In Toronto.

The city's appeal to the citizens to'prevent water waste should be heeded. There is no doubt that there |s �n enormous waste ot water In the (!ity.
