Mlllipns of women keep a tiny bottle on" the dresser and never let corns ache twice.-Advertisement. J Lethbridge people are very anxious that the identity ..of the famous H.N. W.M.P., who are being offered an opportunity to go on active service, should be retained and that they go to the front as a unit under their own officers. The general expression of opinion as gathered by the Herald is very well summed up in the following telegram from President Marnoch of the board of trade to Premier Borden: ! � � '� � lit. Hon. Sir It. T,. Borden, Ottawa: There is widespread feeling through this part of Western Canada that every possible consideration should be given to tho request ^of; Hby,ltt. KTV>rth-\Vost Mounted Police that Sneir fprce should be sent to the front as a unit. The magnificent traditions of tho force havo been still further shown since the war started by the .devotion of the officers to what they considered to be their prime duty namely to remain in Canada at command of the Dominion goVerVment so long as that appeared to the government to be the place where they could best give their service. Now that circumstances are altered it would appear to be an ungrateful return for the services that every settler in the west so greatly appreciates If the force were not granted theiij eminently reasonable request. (1 R. MARNOCH, , Pres. Ifcthbridge Board of Trade. The lack of a definite announcement from Ottawa as to the fate of the "riders of the plains" is the cause of much speculation among the members of the force. However, they are all ready to go on a moment's notice. And .there is not much doubt that Western Canada is shortly to see tho last of the Mounted Police. This fact is being brought to the notice of the commissioners'and it is likely some effort will be made to secure for the city the barracks which have been "K" division headquarters for a number of years. There Is a distinct possibility that the barracks may be taken over by the Military Hospitals Commission as a Southern Alberta unit of the hospitals system until the war is over. Such a plan lias been suggested to the commission. ' London, April 13.-The Cork corporation council last night unanimously adapted a resolution against conscription and appealed to President Wilson for. "protoc-tlon." At the same time the Ulster council issued a statement upholding the government's proposal, pointing out that Ireland at present^ "the moat prosperous portion of the United Kingdom is in duty and honor bound to contribute her portion, be the war long or.short, of the cost incurred; to do less would be to surrender, which Ulster at any rate would .never willingly do, her share in the great empire which is our common glory and our common heritage-" The Ulster statement says that successive elections have shown that the majority of the Nationalist vote is controlled by a party "of open and avowed "treason." The statement adds, after pointing out the growth of the Sinn Fein movement, that "it is pretty obvious that a general election to an Irish parliament would place the balance of power in the hands of a party which is engaged in drilling and preparing with German assistance and,German promises of arms to strike a blow at the heart of the British Empire.'
