The issue at stake is a mighty one and victory for the Allies will spell the deatii doom of German militarism and leave French soil untenanied, ex- cept with .prisoners, by a unit of the German hordes. The duel at present is mainly ot artillery, hut a hand to hand struggle, with its melee of slaughter; may take place at any time. In certain por- tions the Allies hare gained some ground, but this does not point in its nature to any decisive advantage on the whole line of battle. With .them, "however, rests a material advantage in that they are nearer their foose of commnnications than the enemy, and iare a train, service intact for the bringing up of reinforcements. The issue of the deadly combat may be said to rest on the knees of the gods, but we are entitled to the con- fidence "that the skill of the Allied commanders, and the spirit and cour- age of the soldiers will turn the tide into one of overwhelming victory for UE. THE CHARTER AMENDMENTS Evidently somebody'blundered when the proposed amendments to the city charter were advertised and the'city solicitor instructed to place them bc- lore the'legislature at the coming ses- sion. The change In method of assess- ment appears to lack balance to say the least. It seems to ibe a make-shift to suit the ideas of a portion of the ratepayers, and now that it has been published it seesss to suit nobody. What wp cannot for the life of ns is why the charter needs to be amended for in this particular any- way. A few weeks ago the commis- sioners appointed an assessment com- mittee to bring in recommendations as to a fair and acceptable method of assessment for 1915. So far we have not heard of any report from the committee. Better wait for the re- port, zttftllsh it- get the opinion of the ratepayers on it, and then adjust it to suit It's wholly a case of adjust- ment within the charter, and not a question'of amending'the charter at all. As for the proposed recall amend- ment, leave well enough alone until there is 'reason to change. No- body has abused the recall as yet. When it has been abused it will be time enough to raise the percentage necessary to set the recall in motionl If one did not know differently he would ihe inclined to beHeve that the commissioners .are asking for a-change to preclude any possibility of the ratepayers using the recall club on them.
