Buchanin Torrance Director Business Manager THE VYAR SITUATION TODAY The only news of any import thst comes from Belgium is that tho at- temr-t ol the Germans to form a naval base at Zeelrugge, on the coast near Ostend, has been rendered ineffectual toy the heavy -bombardment of the Al- Msd fleet. The seaport is in flames, destroying sections of six submarine's which have been brought there. This is a foretaste of what will follow any attempts of the energy to convert Calais and Dunkirk into naval bases, should lie any chance succeed in, cutting his way there, In the eastern zone beyond the fact j that the Germans have sustained a I repulse in. the region between the Vis- tula and tho "Warthe nothing decisive as known as to its nature. However, it is on the cards that the report ol a great victory for the Russians- is altogether probable, and may be offic- ially announced at any hour. An item interest is th-j announce- ment the!

The Board of Trade is an organization of business men volun- tarily serrips the interests of the city, and in our judgment thsy not attempted to the Com- missioners. They have merely made suggestiofls, and as nearly every mem' ber of the board is a heavy taxpayer the suggestions are.'wprthy of serious consideration If Commi_stoaers are not accept their sesiiohs'they will have to assnme the reopOESibillty, but it is- certainly un- fair for the board to be attacked simply; becauseit performs a public service in bringing to the attention of the Commissioners their views as to methods which should be adopted to reduce the expense of operating tho city. The Board of Trade is simply to the Commissioners a policy which individuals they hare been forced to adopt pa account of the conditions eiist in the .country, .at the present time. One thing is certain, criticisms were not by reason of any hostility to the Commissioners. Citizens of all .classes are fair enough to realise that the Commissioners are af fairs during a critical period. Surely the time has not, come when citizens are supposed to cease taking an in terest in civic affairs and ottermg sue gegtions which they think wonld be for'tho improvement of the financial condition, of the city. The Commis Board of Trade should work together amicably. If tie Com- xoissioners cannot accept suggestions AN ANNOYANCE TO THE PUBLIC Months have passed, and the pat- rons of the Provincial Government telephone system are still without a new directory, it is impos- sible to" understand the delay.
