The light llie'iv is develop- ing considerably in favor of llie Rus- sians. They are reported io be hold- ing the DuklB and the Lupkon- passes. and are slowly about io get possession of Uie third important pass, thai oi Uzsok. Fighting is already being carried or. to a small exteu; on the outskirts of ihe plains of Hungary. "With Galicia more strongly in iheir hands, thun in tlieir previous attempt to cross the Carpathians, the outlook for the latest Russian effort appears to be most encouraging. The tight in the Carpathians is "bound io be one of the- severest iu the campaign.

GRAFT AND -BOOTS The sordidness revealed in the hoot investigation committee, now in ses- sion at Ottawa, will waken people; if they have the interests of Canada at heart, to a realization of the duplicity which has all along attended the awarding of contracts for. army sup- plies. Here is a story told on the stand at Monday's session of the coin- Charles E. Slater, not a manufactur- er, was on the patronage list of the minister oi Mlliiia. Who Charles EL Slater is or 'Khar, he has ever done for his country, no one very much cares. But the fact remains that he on the patronage.committee, and was In line a fat rake-off on some contract or other, it didn't matter what. He wasn't a manufacturer, any way. Boots were called for. Half an hour before the-tendera were to be opened Slater put in a lender 2% cents per pair lower than any of the other ten- ders thy chance) "acd secured the work for Louis of Que- bec. Gauthler, Ltd.. sold Slater the shoes for 13.27 a pair. Slater scak- ed the government 13.85 a pair. The difference, 58 cents a pair, went into the pocket of Slacer because he hap- pened to be on the minister of MI1- itia'B patronage list. MaJor-Generai Sam may declare in stentorian tones that the man who sup- plies rotten boots to Canada's boys-at the front ought io be shot. Is there any very great difference between supplying rotten boots and a rotteu May of buying boots. It's rotten all to the core. The gov- ernment at Ottawa that is so loyal, stands for that line of graft. Probably it doesn't sar outright: "Sure. Slat- er's little graft was ail right but it winks at like. Sixteen thousand dollars went into Slater's pocket, thai should have been put into decent shoes for the first con- tingent. That's what the government is doing 'with the money being voted for war without opposition protest. Can 'anycne accuse the opposition of disloyalty, if, after observing the truce as they did during the war session last August, they raise their voices in pro- test against such reckless graft as has been exposed this session?

Captain" Malcolm' McLcod, aged SO, two weeks ago, the Lethbridge Trades and Labor Council took a vote on resolution brought In hy the Bartend- ers' and Brewery Workers' unions, jointly. On the -publication of the re- sult of that vote quite a commotion occurred. But by what- 1 have seen and heard the pith of the resolution has been lost sight of. What was em- bodied in the appeal was "Liberty of thought speech and action, and the right to live." These 'lour objects rg o wereisaid to be assailed by the pr posed "prohibition." Although it w necessary to talk prohibition and anti- showed, that the Council wished things to remain as they were, and "they en- dorsed the uuita! two locals. the action of the Council should not be misrepresented. If ihe parties who 'wish for a change had mustered a two-thirds majority vote, the-resomtion would have been taken from the table and not discuss- ed and the matter dropped, but instead the resolution waa put to the Council, the result was unanimous for leaving things as they are. would. js'ow lo suo-ft- the'fairncss of the pro- their and to help remove any griev- ance, the undersigned undertook to lay' anil it" announced that An- glican church congregations -----1H consider similar resolutions at annual "Easier meetings unct- me Col.

Let us consider what Is union la- bor's greatest Can we view 'with .pleasure tha.pros- pect of more numbers being added to that great army. Have our fond friends brought forward a remedy to provide work for the members of the two unions In question, if they are thrown out of work, o'wing io the pro- posed change? We are not forgetting what is happening in other lines at the same time. Itev. G. H. CobMedlck gives figures which need not be disputed] but we look for results. He says: "If the cap- ital taken up by the liquor trade was put into tlie iron and steel trade, three and one-half limes as many would find employment; if in bread, six times; if in boots and shoes, eight times; if in the clothing Industry 15 times, and in these it would nay to 10 times more to the wage-earners." Unfort- unately, a'il these lines at the present have all the help they can make use of, and there ia little chance for our brothers who are in the liqucr line. But let our fond friends try: they may yet find a way out of the diffi- culty; even the Labor Councl 'Jis will- OTTO WEDD1GEN Commander, of the .11-29- whbh navigator.

The Indian troops are getting into their stride. The work of the Gurkhas in the trenches is fine, new and suc- cessful. They prefer their kukris to their rifles. Eye-witnesses tell me that preparatory to a night-sta'iklng expedition against the enemy, tlie Gurkha takes his pats it, strokes it tenderly, and lays it down in the trench by the side of a trusted British comrade. Then a party of 30 or -10 Gurkhas leave the trenches. In the lull between volleys the British in the trenches hear a squeaking and a groaning of Germans. Then the tri- umphant Gurkhas return to the trenches smiling and happy, with a string of German ears threaded on u cord round their waists. Germans who are "scuppered" by the Gurkhas are the men who kill nnd muti'iate British nnd Indian wounded.
