All wo knon- is ttat a great battle is in progress alons' the lino from Noyon to -Montfaucon to the norttivest of Verdun, at the present time. No (So- dded advantage is recorded for either Bide, beyond that the enemy has made a slight retirement on his right. At- tacks and counter-attacks are contin- ually taking place, and tho objective the Allies is to dislodge the foe from the vantage heights to the north of the river Aisne. .On these northern Aisne points our interests are- naturally concentrated, knowing as we do that here the Bri- tish troops are engaged, and, aocord- ini: to accounts the French wounded brought into Paris, bearing the brunt of the fighting, and acquitting them- selves admirably. Their French tijtTBii-arms, ire may be sure, are showing the same bold front They are making the position of the Crown Prince's forces, which they have caused to retreat, on the right of the Allies' line, perilous', and will, no doubt, work considerable damage on his troops entangled in the forests of the Argonne.

To the traveller through the country the impression is very strongly con- veyed that the Alberta government might very well employ some of the farmers without means of support in, the south in an effort to clean the -weeds og the roads. These roads be- long to the government in most cases and there "is no excuse for the weeds being there. The time is late for ac- tion, but not too late. The fanner is forced to clean the weeds off his fields bv the government ot AlucTta, which on the other hand allows the weeds! to grow on- the roads. Consistency might a very- good policy for the government to. adopt in relation to menace. The Union Bank of Canada has made a contribution of to the National Patriotic Fund.

'The mayor complained that when the rate was advanced, the public lost sight of the economies exercised, and said that commission (government I was all wrong. .Mr. Johnstone I thought that sales were too variable on which to bas6 an assessment, ridge to pay any regard to actual land value, and an assessment that is not 3ased on actual land values can be of practically no .valued for purposes for w-hich It la Intended. For example: If a few years ago any person was induc- ed to pay, say, 56000 for a certain lot which'he has since discovered IB not worth '53000, or even less, no matter f the party" is. willing to cuf his loss and to sell for J3QOQ, the amendment ;o tho gharter would give the city the lower to. assess''tbs'lpt for and ie unfortunate buyer "would not only lave to stand the loss on his original nvestment, but would be "soaked" ev- ery year for a most unreasonable am- ount.of Of the result would be that In the course of a few yean the city would own tha lot, as no man could be expected to submit to such unfair taxation. For this reason in assessing property, the city should pay very little attention to speculative values. 'It'is quite .true that the city, has to raise a certain amount of taxes each rear, and, is a maximum rate, f the assessment is not high enough W keep within this rate, then the cfty should either cut down its expenses or, if absolutely ne- cessary, should ask the legislature for ?ower to. increase the .rate, or to im- pose a. special super-assessment tax in the.city. To prepare a fictitious assessment roll 'is a course that has nothing'to recommend it. H s simply an. evasion of the true state of and no city should receive any gncouragenient from tho legisla- ture to adopt such a course. "Clause, 2 of the proposed'amend- ment proposes to increase the penalty for non-payment from 5 per cent, per annum to''1 per cent, per mouth. This also Is a step in the wrong direction Everybody must know that if people do not take ad- vantage of the 10 per cent discount, it is simply and they are unable to pay their taxes, and at the present time especially it is impossible to sell, .MosV.'ioan companies appre- ciate the present hard limes and are dealing very lenientlj with Uiun debt ors, and surely at a time like this it Is up to the city to bo a littEe lenient, and not to the already high taxation a very, heavy penalty. If thie'course le persisted in, there fs no doubt that .largfv blocks of land will rnvpr't to the city, and this would result in heavy taxes being paid by the the property holders. No person will be willing to purchase Lethbrldge' city property, even at a tax sale; if these proposed changes in the charter are persisted in. 4 of the-proposed amend- ment deals with tho, matter of recall, and It lafpropos'ed the per- centage of voters upou a petition for recall from 35 per cent of the total votes (it tfas last election to 15 pei cent, of the total voters on" the Itst re< vised list, which is a very different matter. Surely, it would he time en- ough to ask for a change of this char- acter if the question of recall been, ebused. Quite a large percentage of the voters are non-resident, and unless the cMcuniBtances Svere .very excep- tional, it v.'ould ba almost Impossible to get the names of 15 per cent, of tho oters to any petition. At the present time tfcere seems.absolutely no need for any change of this kind. 'Clause 7 provides for a frontaga rate being levied in regard to sewera and boulevards. This proposed change may be of benefit to the city, but IB would be very unfair If the .change was made retrospective. If property owners in future'vote for-these Jm- cannot ably complain if they ar6 charged fop them in accordance with the proposed amendment.
