Holland declares Bhe trusts Britain's given word not to make an invasion, but the indication is that she does not hold the same faith In Germany's word. German infantry have been active again In the region of Verdun. The Oermans claim to have taken French jiosltlons near Douamont. The new British budget makes pro-TiBlon for tho expenditures of at least & year more of war. Taxes are placed on various forms of amusements. The allies' reply to the American protest of Interference' with malls Is that no legitimate mail has been held, but that the Intention Is to continue search of parcel post malls, for contraband. The Russians have entered a severe protest to all the enemy, powers against the sinking of the hospital ship Portugal. We used to think our American cousins had us backed off the map m the matter of graft charges, but we are reluctantly changing our mind.

To Fly the Flag l>r. Stanley's motion that the flag shall fly every day over the school houses was withdrawn upon Mr. Boyle explaining that was tho policy of the department. It had been carried on by moral sunslon but he was amending the regtUatlons so that each district would have to maintain a pole and fly the flag on historic days.

It -would be a mistake to adopt tilie system in vogue In older countries, one Infinitely worse than our own. He was opposed to rearing up an oince-holding class in a community, and said the people of Canada would strongly resent government by civil service. The government is responsible to the people and it it is not doing right, it Is the duty ot the people to turn the government out. He moved in amendment that all the words after "whereas" In the flrst line be struck out and the following Inserted: "Difference of opinion has always existed as to tho relative merits ot the bureaucratic and other systems of appointment to civil service, therefore be It resolved, that In the opinion ot col.

It Sir Robert Borden goes further now and authorizes the royal commission to inquire into the whole shell contract business, he will not only be practically meeting Sir Wilfrid's demands-he will he meeting the demands of the whole of the Canadian people.

How You May Throw Away Your Glasses BOOZE WAS AN EVIL; SO WAS LICENSE SYSTEM If the present spectacle of graft charges In Saskatchewan and Alberta points to anything it points to the fact that booze-tight legislation has come none too soon for the good of politics In this part of the world.

As statistics do not prove that the Inflicting of capital punishment lessens the number of crimes committed, the governor said, it would seem that tbo tirao had arrived for doing away with this method of punishment. Forty-seven persons accused ot issuing or receiving tradulent medical certificates tor exemption from military service or transfers from active to auxiliary branches of the army were placed on trial before a court-martial at Paris.

Various minor staff employees are also on trial. tween federal and provincial powers. He did not distinguish between the banking powers of the Dominion and the provinces. The great trouble was that .Mr. .Mlchener wanted them to do what they can't, do.. He Ignored the things they could do. The U. F.
