Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 8, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, APRIL 8, fM8 THE LFTHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE Wilson Gives His Answer; Force Till Right Conqt^ers Baltimore, April 7.-President Wilson at a great Liberty Loan meeting here Inst night gave America's answer to the German drive on the western battle front and to the renewed propaganda for a German-made peace. To all proposals t6 end the war before Germany is awakened from her dream, of world dominion, America's answer was: "Force, force to ths utmost, force without stint or limit, the righteous triumphant force which � hall make right the law of the world and cast /every selfish dominion down in the dust." Doom of Militarism London, April S.--TI10 doom of the nilitary power in Germany was pro- lounccri by President Wilson in hi; ipcecli ot Baltimore says the Morning Post. "Amid itho stress and suspense of Bin great conflict, now raging.on the H'CHtera front, we ran assure our Am-- trican friends that their bravo .and liniple declarations are inexpressibly encouraging. They look 011 the war !rom a point of view which. ..after nearly four years of stupefying vicls-llt.ufles we have lost." The Dally jilail says: "In' these tours of trial Great Britain feels the real meaning of American sympathy Hid aid. She is .heavily engaged on Jiany fronts and in many different Vays, and on each front and In each tphere she is lavishly giving her Mood. "On the western front a British limy of millions is facing the German ivalaticlie. Side by side with *he French, and in comradeship with American battalions, which have been out into the struggle. On two Turkish fronts Groat Britain is bearing the en- tire burden of the war. On the Indian frontier she has to be always on guard. In East Africa she is defeating the last remains of the German colonial forces. Her nuvy of 450,000 men is maintaining a sleepless watch on the high sea fleet. Her merchant service of 200,000 men unshaken by the cruel submarine losses and peril, remains almost entirely responsible for the transport of food, men and tnuiiitiuiirt lo the allied nations and the fighting fronts. "Great. Britain has no cause. to be ashamed of what she has Perrie says "It would appear to be in the best interests of all our cities to have a general city act placed on the statute for all tip cities in the province, if it is-at all'possible to do so." Five new villages were incorporated during the year: Czar, Clairmont, Ed-gerton, Hughenden Bnd Jenner. - BIG SATeTORRED \ "Fruit-a-tives" Kociion, P. Q.

Pringie this morning, a. discussion regarding 'the position of th*'^ Ontario IJulp and Paper Company of Thorold, took pfsice, the company claiming that they should not ho called upon to -pay the differential iwilh which they were charged under the statement prepared by the auditors. The company is a subsidiary of the Chi�ugo Tribune and all its output ts used in the ,l.'nited States. / The question oft differentials or the manner in which the contributing mills will bo called upon to reimburse the mills which have supplied a larger percentage of the paper to the Canadian newspapers than that which would be properly attributable to them was also taken up briefly. Owing to the fact that a number of the counsel had not arrived, the. morning session was brief, but this afternoon the question of differentials will be gone into thoroughly.

Only Slight Change Made - Open Season for Prairie Chicken Now (f Mcline Universal Tractor shows up strong in demonstration. Pulls two 14 inch breaker; bottoms in toughest of sod. Depth of plowing makes no difference. (ft'Tit. success of the Moline Trac-il tor at the demonstration on Saturday came ns a revelation to the spectators. The ease it ran away with the two 14-inch breaker bottoms on. tough gumbo sod, on stony and hilly ground was simply astonishing. ^- "Yes," (said the Illinois expert) "and in three years every gas tractor made will be on the lines of The Moline, they simply have to come to it and that's all." "I see now," said one of the oldest farmers in the Lethbridge dls-' trict, "where this Tractor gets its reserve power you have been advertising so much, it is quite apparent." The Moline Engine Is possibly one of the finest made. ; The Moline Tractor Is in a class by itself. The price beats all other makes, no exception. It is entirely a one man outfit for Binder and all work. Nothing on "the market-can equal it. Plows hitched to Tractor saves power. Operator has the plows at his feet, can see his work. No useless dead weight-size and wolght don't count. , No small wheels (which are useless) to push in front. Moline Plow Co., with $19,000,000 capital fully paid up say: "We absolutely stand behind and guarantee the Moline Universal Tractor to do its work." Arrange to see it working on a farm quite close to lethbridge operated by the farmers. Phone 1301 for appointment. W.
