Trajni A Phase of War rpRE IXABILITY of national con- J_ ferences to settle everything is shown by the iiower which bel- ligerents possess with respect to the on their coasts. At the present time, in .the war n ou between Italy and Turkey, the lights on the coasts of the Red, Adri atic and M-adfterranean seas, under the control of the respectiv-a parties in the conflict, have been extinguish- ed. This means a danger to mercan- tile marine, and points out how far- ivaching are the effects of war. af- fecting even those who are not d'irecj- ]y interested Ja the cause and pro- gress of the contest. Consequent on this action, there have been many proteclji from ship- ping firms, steamship companies, and marine underwriters. These pro- tests, however, appear to be ineffect- ual, inasmuch as the power of decis- ion rests on the governments of Italy and Turkey. This i-s one of the inter- national questions which th-e Hague conference could not adjust. It 'is ad- mitted that every country has a per- ils coasts, and this is not Affected b the existence of a state of war peace. Admiral Sir Cyprian' Bridge, n known authority on the subject, ha gone so far as to state that any lie tral country in time of war hetweu two maritime nations, might feel for ed to extinguish Its coast lights in o der to its waters being trim formed into n "perpetual cockpit." There appears to be something c injustice to underwriters in this a rangetuont, for the responsibility fo usurance on vessels wrecked Km coast.deprived of lights .under the ci cumstauces of war, rests with then A uon-yettlernent of this importan nteniat'ioual question has been delnj ed through the idea that self-interes would tend to bring about its own soi utiou. It is pointed out that if th' bel'jieerent, by extinguishing his coas ights, stops the maritime trade of hi country, will be .-irMmlly follow ng out the desii'S'S of ;.he enemy in ilockari'ing his own wheth :r this view will prevail with Italy o: feet right to extinguish the lights on 'Turkey remains to be seen. The Payment of Taxes AT THIS TIME of the year, when the thought of taxes to be palt at the end of the month oc c.umes a very large part of the atten Uon of the property owiiers of tlv. city, the matter of the method of pay- ment may very well be studied a lit- tle. The Herald has before suggest- ed that made -20 that th-a taxes may he paid Quarterly or at least half-yearly, instead of all in on-e lump, as .under -the present system. This change Jias been made in other places with great satisfaction, not on- Sy to the taxpayers, but also to the officials in charge of the city's af- fairs. Of course, to carry this system into effect, it is necessary to have the as- sessment made at the of tlva year, or at the end of the year previous, so that the notices may be -3tut out, the appeals heard, the rate struck ami the tax notices sent out by, say, In a city like Lei-Iibi'idpe, rapid- ly expanding, and th'e values are con- stantly changing, this would .mean get ting an eai'iy start. Under the system of auarterly pay- ments, the taxes could be made pay- able at the end of each name- ly March 31, June MO, September ;JO, and December .'ii. The system gener- ally adopted by other places has been to have the taxes payable at these times without -disconnt, but if a tax- payer wants to pay up the. whole year's taxes in advance he is allowed discounts on tire last three quarters' taxes, the rate of discount being lar- ger for the third and fourth quarters than for the second. If the -faxes are not paid when due, interest is added. advantages of this system are ojjrious. it waiiltl mean that the tax jiayerg would not have to pay the whole sum of their taxes at once. II 'is -easier- for the average owner of house and lot to pay or ?ii> taxes every three motiths than to pav ?50 or S60 aM at once. The advantage is correspondingly great for the large property-owners, who t'ind it diffi- cult nt times to find three or thousand dollars in the month of Oct- ober to pay their taxes, but could easily get a quarter of the amount at any time. From the taxpayers' stand- ioint the quarterly paym-ent system iaa plain advantages. From the standpoint of the city lore are also great advantages. Jt vonld mean that the city council and school hoard would not have to carry large "overdrafts at the bank, vith thetr correspondingly large inter- est charges. The money would come n each quarter sufficient to keep th'a ncil or the hoard during the suc- ding quarter. With quarterly pay- nents, Uiere "would necessarily be clerical work at the city offices b.ut the expen-se of this would not be gin to use up th-a saving in interest. From the standpoint of. the conven ience aud economy of the find the economy ami convenience o the .public bodies who have to use the money for the public, quarter ly payjnent system would >bc a distinct advantage. The council would do well "to" lake it 'into consideration early, in order that, if they see fit adopt it, the asyasament and other work may be accomplished in time to have the tax notices sent by, say, March 1st.

Tills, it goes wltho.nt saying, is what each of the candidates lias distinctly at heart. Dr. Stewart is described as a fine sturdy specimen of mnnhooil. an uttri- bnt intent fi Bervativea. The same ran equally he said of Mr. Shepherd. "Dr. Siowurt has plenty of Wens in his head." That does not prove that Mr. Shepherd in dtftolent In these.
