ROUND THE CIRCI.E OF THE WAR ' Holland is now prepared for any invasion of her neutrality which may occur from either the allies or the Germans. The Dutch , armies are massed along both frontiers, and Holland Is prepared to protect her neutrality at all costs. So say her ministers. Sudden uneasiness has been created by the massing ol German troops along the frontier, and by the reported invasion by Britain. Holland la not taking any chances. It is stated that the Dutch are angn,- -tvith the British over the blockade, and claim that a shortage of food exists in their country as a result. Xo fighting of any consequence has taken place recently on the western front. Artillery duels appear to be the order of the day with an intei> miltent Infantry scrap or two. Positive proof that n German sub. marine sank the Sussoz has been obtained by the United States authorities. Further action from Washington is now imperative. A Spanish ship was sunk in the Bay o� Biscay yesterday by a German Submarine. WHY FARIVIERS SHUN SHIPPING TO CALGARY The Calgary News Telegram wonders -why Southern Alberta farmers are prejudiced against shipping their grain via Calgary. The answer is easy. Shipment of grain via Calgary lilts the farmer in the pocketbook to the tune of 2 or 3 cents a bushel, trhat's wby. TVlien the Panama route for grain shipments la proven to be practical Calgary will get Its share of the grain trade because It will be on one of the logical routes. I^thbridge too will be one of the funnels through which grain will pour to the Paclflo ports. We hare no cause to worry either for the present or the future. "HONEST" ANDREW BRODER- PRINCIPLE BEFORE PARTY Honest Andrew Droder, staunch and lifelong Conservative, rose In his place In the House of Commons on Tuesiluj- night and voted against the govorumont because he believed it was not doing tlie square thing by the people of Canada in jockeying to oonliuo the scoi>e of the inquiry into shell and fuse contracts. Mr. Broder voted witli a lifelong political opponent, Sir Wilfrid Ijiiirlor, who held out for the broadest Inquiry within the means of parlian\Bnt to grant. Why? Because Mr. Broder knows Col. J. Wesley Allison, and little good he knows of him. Because Mr. Broder has witnessed the spectacle of the Conservative government endeavoring to shield the shell committee, first by charging the opposition with false xnctives in trying to � make party capital out of the shell con.tracts, then by refusing an Investigation because it was British and not. Canadian money that was paying for the shells, and then at last, �when forced to it by preponderating weight of evidence, granting grudgingly a commission of inquiry into only such contracts as the government might single out. Mr. Broder has a lifelong reputation for honesty at stake and he knew that quibbling in so serious a matter would not be pleasing either to himself or the Canadian people, so he did what he .believed to be right and voted against his party. The whole country today- honors himself for Ills stand; he put principle before politics, and we believe that disclosures are coming that will "prove to him that he did the right thing. Those who have been sneering at Sir Wilfrid Laurler'd attitude toward a restricted inQulry should study Honest Andrew Broder's stand in this crisis. It will convince any but the most hidebound partisan that principle much more than poll-tics" has been responsible for the Disposition's determination to put the blame for shell contract irregularities where it belongs and run the I grafters, feeding on the vitals of the � Dominion in this time of war, to earth. F)ICKED UP IN ASSINGCZZIl FOR THE BUSY MAN THE TELEPHONE' SYSTEftfl AND FARMERS' MARKET REPORTS Dawn In Jlanltoba the provinclally owned telephone system there sends out a dally market report to every exchange In tho province, and all far-: iners have to do to get latest market Reports on grain and livestock Is to call up their local exchange.  The plan is so eminently, practical and useful that the Herald draws It to the attention, of the Alberta telephone system. With so much depending on the success of farming In this ! province, and with tlie .success of , farming depending so much on mar-I ket conditions, we believe that not ! only would the farmers benefit im-xnensely by the Introduction of the Manitoba plan here, but the telephone � system would benefit also by making Itself indispensable to the farmers. I It's a plan worth trying. Almost time to spring the old gag about "taking "em off again." . It; looks as If it would be a neck and. neck race under the wire between the Kilties and the 61st. The Dutch seem to think they're "in Dutch." with the belligerents all round. KoB!>Iaud. B. C. has given $10,000 to the Red Cross. The Gist battalion, of Edmonton, which w^us in camp at Sarcoe last summer, has left the capltol. Four thousand five hundred and twenty-four cases of Ucd Cross supplies have been shipped since the war began from Quebec, city. Bushby Park, which the king loaned to the Canadian Kod Cross, has been tnvnsformed into a hospital and is now receiving patients. The Duke of Connaugbt at Christmas gave 100 pheasants to the Canadian Red Cross hospitals in England and France! Nolica has been received In Glasgow of the death in action of Lance-Corporal Chas. Clutnas, a well-known member of the Clyde Football club. Mrs. Gertrude. Barker, who gave her age as "over IS" and her weight as (615 pounds," was married at St. Louis to Harry West of Rock Island, 111., who is slender and tall. Frank Carrell, proprietor of the Telegraph, Quebec, was married recently in the Royal Suite. Rltz-Carltou hotel Montreal, to .Miss Annie Maud SplUer of Bexhlll, Sussex, England. One year's imprisonment and a fine of $350 in default of payment of which an additional three months was the Judgment passed on Yee Chuck Nun. Chinese, in the Calgary police court under the opium and drug act. Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Elmoro were married between floors in tlie elevator at the court house at Slusgogoo, Okla., recently. After obtaining a license on the top floor the couple remembered S. B. Coley, elevator "boy" was a licensed clergj-man. Into his lift they went and were wed. Douglas Marmillan. presiding at the Society for the Prevention of Cancer in London, recently, said that although radium was believed to be the panacea for all carcinanatous growths it had utterly failed and we are today no nearer the cure of cancer by local means than we were 50 years ago. At the request of tlie British authorities the Grand Trunk system has supplied a series of motion picture reels which are being shown to the troops in France and Belgium during their brief periods of rest behind the line. Thousands of British troops are daily watching these pictures of Canadian scenery and Canadian industries. IRY"CftSCflRET8" FOB LIVER AND BiELS F SICK OR BILIOOS TONIGHT!

Sir Sam Hughes always displayed a desire to be in the llmeUght. He's getting it in double doses today. The Calgary street railway shows a net profit of $391.2.3 for 1916^ Not verj- much but we'll be pretty well satisfied in Lethbridgo when we can do as -well. THE STANLEY CHARGES AGAINST HON, MR. CROSS Dr. G. D. Stanley of High River has renewed his charges against the government in the provincial legislature, this time involving Hon. C. W. Cross, Bttorney-seneral. On their face the charges look serious, but they lack weight In one es-sentlal particular: Mr. Cross' department is accused of forcing hotelmen to pay money for campaign funds and to pay for immunity from prosecution, but not a single specific Instance Is given containing the names or the emounts. A\Tio are the'hotelmen who paid the money, and what are tho amounts and circumstances under which they were mulcted? If Dr, Stanley jvUl get down to cases and make his charges specific, we are sure Premier SIfton will not liesitate to appoint a. Royal Commls-plou to investigate, and the Herald would be much disappointed If he tailed to follow such a course. But Mr. Stanley is apparently try I' ing to make his blanket charges stick 'Without getting down to cases. He wlshos to pave tlio ^vay for the oppo Bltlon to ceii aiot of witnesses in the pOjfQ pt Bomewhers finding eometliing to th� front?-Then don't forget you will need some Zam-Buk! The soldiers at the front are asking for more of IL Pte. J. R. Smith, of the "Princess Pats," writing home, �ays; "Tell my friends ther� Is one thing I should be glad to get-r-that's Zam-Buk." Also Corp. Fremlln, of the 10th Field Ambulance, -writing from France, says: "We are finding Zam-Buk splendid for injuries and ailments, but ve haven't enough of It." Zam-Buk cannot be equalled for the Injuries and ailments Incidental to trench life. There is nothing that ends pain and heals so quick-ly. For cuts, scratches, bruises, stiff Joints, and all skin ailments It Is equally good. For sore and bllstersd feet, caused by long standing and marching, there Is nothing brings such relief as Zam-Buk, and for sores of all kinds Zam-Buk is Invaluable. Haying some Zam-Buk on hand to apply Immediately an Injury Is sustained will save a man tnuoh crinecessary pain. It you are not going to the front, there Is another way In which you can "do your bit"-help relieve the sufferings of the men In the trenches by sending them Zam-Buk. All druggists BOc. ibox, 3for?1.25, or post free for price, from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto.- Deer Lodge iiotel, tho well known wa.vsido inn at Winnipeg, has been turned over to tho Returned Soldiers' association, to be used as a convnloscent lionia for returned .soldiers. R. J. MacKenzie. tho owner. Is a son of Sir William MacKenzie, Toronto. The property is valued at a quarter of a million dollars. The action of the bakers of Hamilton, Out., In raising the price of bread from si.< to sevou cents a loaf, and their persistent refusal to give'up their jiosition in the face of a atorm of opposition, will result in tlie establishment here of a municipal bakery, the first of its kind in Canada. Announcement to this effect was made by Mayor Walters yesterday. will bo sold at not higher than si.x, and probably for five, cents.' At a war fund concert held in a west of Scotland centre the other evening, the drawings amounted to an odd figure, and to make thoni even money the conductor of the choir Intimated that lie would be pleased to auction kisses from the best looking Lidy vocalists if there was' anyone ready to bid. One gentleman in the front row seats said he would not bid, but he would bet �5 that not one of the girls would kiss the conductor. This was received with great merriment by the audience, merriment which increased when a young lady, stepping forward, fulfilled the contract. The "fiver" was paid, but not till then was it explained that the young lady had merely kissed lier father! Mitchell refuted the statement by reading from the act that it there was any unearned money it was to be spent on the extension of the line across the Peoce Rlvor northward. The bill was perfectly plain. The railway charter is for one hundred miles, and tifty-one built. Mr. Mitchell repeated that he would not ask the house to confiscate the funds provided for the farmers' co-operative elevators. Mf. Mitchell said It the monoy were not necessary the government would not press to borrow it. Tho government realized the drawbacks of tlio war as much as any others, but did not feel that the people of Alberta wanted all progress to stop bo-cause tho country happens to bo at war. Mr. Mitchell showed that Alberta's credit is standing ,up well with other provinces and better than the most of them, and it is quite an good as that' of tho Dominion government. Mr. Mitchell said If tlie province owned the natural resources the bonds would sell above par. Mr. Patterson (Maoleod): "Why doesn't tho province own the natural resources?" Mr. Mitchell: "Tho province doesn't own the resources because the Right Hon. R. L. Borden defaulted on a solemn pledge given the people of Western Canada." This was greeted with cries of dissent from the opposition benches and cheers from the Liberal side. Mr. Etwing, Edmonton, followed briefly in a legal argument to show tliat the Central Canada loan balance belongs to the province and not to tho railway companies. Claims Fraud Mr. Tweedle, Calgary, said he couldn't see any justification for the loan. He charged fraud In connection with the Central Canada loan In Uiat the money was got under false pretences. Ho supported tlils statement with the assertion that the com', pany never filed the estimated cost of construction, and he said this was a most fatal time to enter the money markets, and opposed the loan. The supply received its second reading without comment. Night Session The night sitting of the legislature was devoted to a discussion of the opposition resolutions, that of Mr. Ewing dealing with the civil service developing into a rather acrimonious affair. .Mr. Boyle read from the Conservative press of Mr. Ewlng and other Conservatives ottering military commissions to certain parties, and ' he was followed by -Mr. 'f weedie who i Indulged in a rather coarse attack on ! members of the civil service, repeating largely a speech delivered last year devoted to officials of the land titles offices. The Conservative speakers denied that party association influenced military appointments. Mr. Patterson, Macleod, moved the ad-i journnieht. Before the speaking started the house spent an hour in committee on the statute law amendments, the time for the most part being spent In a discussion by the lawyers in the house. Mr. Hillocks, In presenting his motion for an increased grant to hospitals, said every institution of the kind in, the 'province is suffering financial stress. Jlr. Sifton said that all were sympathetic, but the government felt that it had gone as far at present as revenues would permit. The motion was lost. Mr. Hoadley In resuming the debate on Mr. Rwlng's non-party civil service motion, started off by withdrawing the word "liar" which he burled at Hon. Duncan .Marshall the day The High Standard of Quality ' ortginaltjr set up by LEA & PERRiNS' for their famous Sauge, has been maintained for over 70 years. This is why LEA & PERRINS' SAUCE continues to be held in such high esteem by all discriminating people. Observe the signature ihtis:- iii whiU across the red label on every botlU, The'Original and Genuine Worcestershire preylouB,. and said he would "express the eentlment in parliamentary phraseology," (Laughter.) Proceeding he said he did not dispute that homestoad inspectors work in elections. Who Inlttatod the system in Western Canada, hu asked. Jlr. SIfton: "Sir John A. .Maodon-ald; tho first orte he sent was Haytor Reld." (Laughter.) "Who. perfected the system, then " continued Mr. Hoadley. A member: "Bob Rogers." Mr. .Hoadley said he thought Mr. Rogers' Jiad only continned the system perfected by Clifford SIfton. (Renewed laughter.) Contlmiing, the speaker moralized on the necessity of those "higher up" setting an example to the t' -"^'-ice. Mr. Ewing said If the f �/ 'ervlce in this province did not tit'' art In elections. Alberta was dlrti. from every other province in Cai . He devoted considerable time c alning; the appointment of officers in "The Irish Guard" regiment, denying that the Conservative patronage committee interfered as stated Tuesday by Mr. Boyle. Mr. Hillocks, Calgary, followed and said that men In public life wore hounded to death by ofilrfe seekers. Ho argued that the amendment was not materially different from the motion, but some guarantee could be given that qualifications should be attested by examinations. Mr.' Boyle, who followed, said he had no occasion to change his remarks about military olficers and patronage. He did not ciiarge it. He said he read it in a Conservative paper. Continuing, Mr. Boyle created considerable amusement by reading An Inside Bath Makes You Look and Feel Fresh Say* a glass of hot water wHh phosphate before breakfast keeps Illness away. Thl� excellent, common-sorwe health measure being adopted by mllllont. from a Conservative paper that Mr, Ewing, with two other leading Edmonton Tories, waited on dlftereiU parties and offered them commissions. Mr. Twflcdio deprocnted dragging in federal affairs, und called tho muster roll of Liberals appointed to commands as refutation of Mr. Boyle's statements. Ho contrasted the Conservatives montlonod with certain members of the civil service whom ho described us "political heelers." Mr. Sifton, rising, sold no aspersions were cast on tlio Consorvntlvo committee. All that was said was to question tho advisability of civilians interfering with tho appointment of otBcora. Mr. Tweedle, continuing, mentioned a number of civil servants by name and in very uncomplimentary terms.
