The government preferred to start at the. top, and go down rather than to set a low rate, anft have to raise it. They started at j the general rate of assessment nov/ levied by the private, companies to crpate a surplus for a reserve fund, and when- this fund reached $250,000 they would be able to lower the rate.

The fighting yesterday continued with more or less intensity along the whole line. The Germans pushed hard in the neighborhood of Fonches, Ghaul-nes, Eatrees, Doniplere, Mericourt, -Miraumont, Achiet Le Grand, Sapig- nles and Ervlllers. Hea'yy fighting occurred about Grevillers -and a desperate conflict was waged in the vicinity of Nesle, which the Germans now hold. The enemy also advanced slightly in the direction of Noyon but met with strenuous resistance which appeared to stem the advance. Further massing of German troops was reported'at Per-onne and north of Bapaume, both of which the enemy holds. Bapaume yias turned into an inferno by .squadrons of British aviators.

V , During the. night there was comparatively little change in the line. No heavy attack this niorning had been reported up to 10 o'clock. The British were still holding the enemy steady about half-way between Coiubles and Albert. Further north some, gains were achieved by the assaulting troops. The British during the night fell back some-whiit from the lino th/rough Ervlllers and Saplgnles in order to straighten the front, which bulged inward just to ihe south. ho was a firm believer In the basis that every utility, and every feature of government should carry itgolf, so that it ".should stand on lis own feet." Ho did not. feel that this would be practical otherwise. It was not the intention to bring the of.t. into force till the beginning ot 1919 except regarding the coal mines. The railways would not come under the- act till an order-in-couiicll. The premier expressed himself .strongly that if the province through the board could not provide coinpensa tlon at a lower rate than the compan prpvlnce carrying part of the cost of' les he would certainly favour getting administration the premier said that out ot business entirely. SEHD,ltlFiiX London, Mar. 26.-In" the mystery gun, the name generally given to the weapon with which the Germans are bombarding Paris from a distance estimated at 75 miles, it-is frankly cpn-ceded by experts that the enemy has sprung one ot the greatest Durprises of the war. General Sir Dismbnd . O'Callaghan, formerly president of the army ordnance commission say� ot. the German gun: ^1' ."The projectiles .must' hav^ been fired from longer and heavier guns and with a more powerful propellant than we have any knowledge of." Proni/'aris has come the suggestion that the extraordinary range of the gun is due to the projectile being provided with a second charge which explodes when � the  first stage of the flight Is completed, giving it a fresh impetus. This theory is acbiited by General O'tfallaglian as is also the variant of it, that the projectile Is titled with a propeller enabling it to continue its journey when. It is no longer driven by the projecting force from the gun.   "It would seem," says General O'f^al-laghan, "that a new departure in bailrts-tlos can alone explain the enormous rangg which is three times of that of anything hitherto accomplished."-' One-export estimates that the weight of tlie projectile is about .180 pounds and that It leaves tho gun wltli a muzzle velocity ot about four thousand feot a second, the gun having an ele-ya-lion of about i;5 degrees which very Qulckly takes the projectiles. Into, a stratum of rarlfled iiir In which resistance is greatly minimized. iThe strain CHEST GOLDS may mean weak lungs and upon the gun, he says, must be enormous and probably It would be unablb to survive more than a hundred rounds at the most, the cost of each being nearly �1,000. All experts agree that at such a tremendous range, even approximate accuracy is out ot the question and, therefore, the gun Is only at use where a target Is presented on a vast scale, like Paris. The object aimed at, they say, Is rather more moral than material, but In both respects, the gun Is likely to prove less effective than airplane raiders. nifade In Austria Geneva, Mar. 25.-The long range guns bombarding Paris, according to a Vienna despatch received,here are of Austrian manufacture, having been built at the Skoda factory.
