The allies on the weetern front continue to harraa the enemy with tre-qnent raids in which they generally bring back numbers of prisoners. The nemy artillery has been extremely active but thus tar there has iJten no Infantrj' movement of any consequence. It Is evident, as one correspondent puts it, that the German loaders are giving ample opportunity to their exhausted army corps to regain their fighting spirit before attempting to launch another offensive. BUSINESS METHODS BRtNG RESULTS. if Calgary wants an argument as to the efficiency of the application of a little pressure In the collecting of tax arrears, l.elhbridgc furnlshe.s a fine exan'.ple. From January 1 to April 30. this year. ?:OO.OftO in tax arrear^ was collected, n-hlch w-as as wuch, within a few thousand dollars, was collected in the same-period of all the years 1914 to 1917 inclusive. The application of pressure -was not applied in I^thbrldye until the total of outstanding taxes had mounted to about 130 per cent, of the annual levy, and the members of the council had no other course to pursua than to apply business methods for once. The natural question now is to ask �when tho city council Is going to clean up 1916 and 1917 arrears. A NEW DAY IN ROAD-BUILDING. An official of the Alberta Government has stated, we believe, that good permanent roads would mean 125,000,000 a year to the Province of Alberta. This would mean $50 to every man, woman and child in the Province. It should, therefore, be of tho greatest interest to everyone in this district, and especially to the farmers, to learn that the Government is introducing a new method of road building, an account of which appears elsewhere, and that the first demonstrations are being held in the Leth- bridge district. The introduction of tractor equipment, releasing the horse equipment heretofore used, for work on the farms, means that, in snito of the war. Alberta is going to continue road building. We have inuch of it yet to do, but The Herald believes the new equipment is going to solve many of the past difficulties, and for that reason every rural municipality should know what the Government la doing at the present time ^ia the way of introducing labor saving equipment. construction of submarines In Germany. The Kfeatest blow to Oerm.m hopes of dostroyini: the commerco of tho Allies on the ocean lies In tho convoy system, which is rapidly approaching perfection. When the plan of escorting transports and suppiy ships rl.ifht the .\JIanllc So largo fleets was first tried out there considerable delay on account of difference in speed of the various ship.1 of which it was composed. The speed of a convoy is naturally th.Tt of the slowest vessel and in many instances liners thftt could average 14 to 16 knot.", wera In company of steamships only cnoable of maintaining 10 knots, under the most favorable circumstances. Some vessels wore S5 days on a round voyage between Kngland and .Unerlca, and iinchored as ninny as 45 times in as many places during that period. Between FYance and America convoyp were even slower and in some Instances American steamships were 144 days on the round voyage. -Naturally, this has all tended, whh railroad congestion in -America and lack of coal, to increase delay in shipping men and supplies to the war lono. The situation in .lanuary was so bad that colliers had to be sent out from England to America to coal ehips and get thera to sea. AOTO ACCIDENT Mrs. (Jiow Sei-ioiisly Injured-L. D. S. Conference is Held - (From Our Own rorreJli""''*"'^ Cnrdston, May lT.~rhe regular monthly nieoting of tiie council was held on Wednesday last, .ill the members being iJrosont, and His Woralilp, Mayor W. K. Pitcher, In tho chnlr. ^The regular routine was gone through and the chief buslneas seemed to be applications for the extension of the water mains. ColinclUor Phlpps stated throe applloatlona wcro pending. Including tho one pro-ented last year from residents on tho south and east side of I�es Creek, which was again brought to tho attention of the council through another pptlcion presented by Councillor ,1. Y. Card. The matter of raising the oleclrlo light rates was discussed, as the co'�t of coal was becoming so burdensome and wages so much higher than in pre-war times, but action was deferred for the present. The Town SollcUdr was Instructed to proceed with the collection of all taxes in arrears by distraint or other- wise so as to clean up the old scores At the present time convoy.^ are all! anil enable the town to finance witn-classlfied according to speed, and a i o"' f""her loans, fast transport can make a round trip Aee'"*"*- in :!0 days, while the slower class of supply ships drift across the ocean at a steady six or seven knot gait. The number of British and ,\ineri-can destro.vers has increased rapidly and is still doing so that there are plenty of these essential--watchdogs of the sea to make the passage of convoys across the .\tlantic and .North Sea secure. The greatest percentage of losses by submarines since January 1 has been in the .Mediterranean, and this is now being reduced by increasing the number of destroyers in those waters. No submarine commander will risk attack on a convoy which is protected on all four sides by destroyers and frequently accompanied by seaplanes circling overhead In advance. ' Naval experts are confident that when there are eufficient destroyers to escort all convoys required to transport troops and munitions from America to England ahd France the submarine peril will be practically at an end.

The menace of the German submarines and mines to the maritime . commerce of the Allies is becoming less week by-week, says tho London correspondent of the New York Times. The Improvement is due chlef-: ly to the development of listening devices and the depth bombs carried on V tUe swift moving,destroyers. The hy-i dffphone is the most useful invention '. that has been discovered by the navy ; in" It^, anti-submarine crusade, and it ^ liAefng;.Improved upon all the time. � 'When a U-boat is spotted from Aloft by one of the alert observers {In the seaplanes which wing their (ifUght over the North Sea and the ' marines ever returning to port is making it difficult for tho German admiralty to get crews to man them.
