eatable of maintaining 10 under the most favorable Some ves sels were S5 days on a round voyage between England and and nnchored as many as 45 times in as many places during that Be tween France and America convoyR were even slower and In some In stances American steamships were 144 days on the round this has all wHh railroad congestion in America and lack of to increase delay in shipping men and supplies to the war The in was so bad that colilers had to be sent out from England to America to coal ships and get them to At the present time convoys are all classified according to nnd a fast transport can make a round trip infantry movement of any conse It is as one corres pondent puts that the German leaders are giving ample opportunity to their exhausted army corps to re gain their

furnishes a fine From January 1 to April this in tat was which was as within a few thousand was collected in the sameperiod of all the to 1917 The application of pressure was not applied in Lethbrldge until the total of outstanding taxes had mounted to abont 130 per of the annual and the members of the coun cil had no other to pursue than to apply business methods for The natural question now is to

there are plenty of these of the sea to make the passage of convoys across the Atlantic and North Sea The greatest per centage of losses by submarines since January 1 has been in the Mediter and this is now being reduced by increasing the number of destroy ers in those No submarine commander will risk attack on a con voy which is protected on all four sides by destroyers and frequently ac companied by seaplanes circling overhead in Naval experts are confident that when there are sufficient destroyers to escort all convoys required to transport troops and munitions from America to England and France the submarine peril will be practically at an This stage should be Reached by At the present time the Uboats watch and wait for vessels which are alone and probably on their way to a rendezvous and rarely at tack a The sinking of vessels in the Irish sea has been due to the fact that the water there is muddy and too and a submarine can lie on the bottom and come up at Quite in
