Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 26, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY. OCTOBER 2C,. TOI.?

Keep a tiny, bottle on the ire.i.ser and never let a corn or callus �ch(j twice,-Advcrlisoineut sunken steamships have been run down by submarines or shot to pieces with rifle fire. These things have gone into the records of that book-every one of them. Day after day the account has mounted; for every murder so-many days, for every ship sunk so many, with double count for hospital ships, because they sail upon errands of mercy that all men who are not Germans respect and protect. The league has solemnly pledged itself and sworn that, no matter what governments may promise or Cabinets may do, the long ,blood-dripping score shall be paid in this way before there will be any trade with Germany. Into every agreement, into all the .shipping articles to be signed by British seamen, there will have to be a clause exempting the crew from taking the ship into any German port. No seaman of the league will sail with Germans, handle any German goods or recognize Germany as a civilized nation until the account is squared-the account that grows with each new German crime. One thing that prevents statesmanship here from taking a blithesome view of this prospect is the fact that the league evidently means what it says, and the British Seamen's Union of which it really is a part, has already proved its great power, stubborn will .and disnuieting readiness to butt in upon the sacred precincts of eminence. Seamen's Union Has Shown Its Power Again and again governments have been willing to allow very well known men, classed as pacifists, to go to Stockholm conferences or to go to America on lecturing tours. The ships on which they haye embarked have never left the docks, because the", members of the Seamen's Union refused'to work on any ship that carried such men. Governments proposed, but the union disposed, and the word of the union stood. If therefore, the union holds fast when the war is over there is no question that It c^n" have its own way about some things, no matter who shall attempt to say it nay. Germany (if we leave a Germany) will, of course, insist upon full commercial freedom, equal trading rights and no discriminations. Suppose the peace conference agrees to these demands or any of thorn. The Seamen's League can knock the peace conference's agreement through the ropes 'with one punch.v Because in free countries there is no possible way to make men work whan thay don't want to work. It can be done in Germany, but not among the democracies. U the sailors refuse to sail on ships to Germany the ships s'tay right where thoy arc-lied up to the piers. Seaman Say Traffic Will Not Move Also suppose that under siioii coiuiKions an attempt slioum be ' ting a property owner in arrears to pay his back taxes in installments the government will support the amendment. In that case an amendment will be prepared. Mayor Hardie is confident that with the charge of 20 per cent, with four years to pay the balance, or even 10 percent., with nine years to pay the balance, enough back taxes wdurtd easily be collected to pay the interest on the sinking fund and to relieve the situation generally. Mayor Hardie is of the opinion that in non-manfacturing towns the assessment should not average more than $1,000 per capita, and tlie mill rate should not e.xceed 16 mills on the dollar. Anything beyond this he says cannot be paid by the ordinary property; owner. The amount above this he would raise by an increased chargR on water or light, or by imposing a rent., tax. The rent tax is calculated to catch that portion of the population who do not pay any other form of taxation, and do not pay sufficient rent to cov er the taxes and interest on the land lord's investment. > Speaking on the report that he favored a business manager for Leth bridge. Mayor Hardie wanted it under stood that he was just pleading for a little more authority for the mayor who was expected to finance the city and had no more authority tliaii the other commissioners, so he could not control their expenditure. He had no criticism to offer to Calgary's alder manic-commissioner form of govern ment except to say that there must be a great deal of timo lost in talk with such a large number of aldermen. He would out the number down. DEATH OF ONTARIO M. P. P. Medicine Hat, Oct. 25.-Mr. Jessop Nott received word last night of the death of his uncle, Dr. Elisha Jessop, M.L.A., of St. Catherines, Ont.
