Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 15, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta p. THE LETHBRtDGE DAILY HERALD SATURDAY, APRIL 15, IDIG frA 1LYAND WEfiKUV :� BubMrlptlon R�e�'. Dally, aelivered; per week .....

Buchanan Matiaging Director John TorranOo Business Munager ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR Another Important British victory la Mesopotamia, which advances the British still farther towards the goal ot ihe relief of Gen. Townshend's tropps, was recorded yesterday and gives further reason for contidence over the situation in that country. At Verdun the Oennan heavy artillery is again busy on both sides of the" river, covering small attacks which are made against various points of -tiie French .defence. Considerable anxiety is expressed OTe;f the attitude of Roumania, which .'cointrj' 's said to be now inclining tcw^rds the central powers, although it; is believed that no definite action, will be taken until some decisive victory: on either side is proclaimsd. price tor grain in store, Ktort WlUiani, was 113%. The price quoted hei'e (or grain in store In the Calgary elevator w�i 110%, from whloh wmild be deducted the freight lo Winnipeg plus any elevation,, charges Incurred at Calgary. That Is all the proof required that the adver�e difference does exMst. U might be pointed out that, in spite of the adjustment ot the frelsht rates, they still are against the farmer shipping to Calgary. LethbrUigOs is a 23-cent point, Calgary is a 25-cent point. The farmer in this district making use of the Calgary elevator is given a rate of about two cents a hundred to Calgary. Prom Cftlgary. to Fort VSIlllam he pays 2."> cents, making 27. ceuts per hundred or 16.2 cents per bushel. By shipping direct from L,ethbridge on the 2o-cent rate, he gets his grain to Fort William for 18,3 cents a bushel, a difference against the Calgary route of 2.4 cents per bushel, or about $25 a car. The same thing holds good as regards the .24-cent points, only to a little less degree. Kven the Ho-cent points ore affected, though those in the immediate territory of Calgar>-are not. But Ptncher Creek Is a 25-cent point and would be affected to the extent of the freight rate from Ptacher Creek to Calgan*. even thoilgh that rate were reduced to two cents. Calgary may as well realize that it cannot build Itself up as a grain centre under such conditions. Other things being equal we are sure the farmers of Southern Alberta would be pleased to avail themselves of the facilities offered by the Calgary elevator, but -we would like to feel the back of the farmer's head who falls over himself to ship his grain In that djrectlon under present conditions.

With Europe in the grip of a world war, these men and women will have to remain In America this summer.

Bonthem Alberta Haa'not yet any far-famed summer resort,! but we liave one in the making,, and It we avail ourselves J^^iif this year's" opportuiilties we should^-'place burseives^ln-a'fair way to having one. Watferton Lakes National Park is as pretty a spot as is to be found In the ^Rockies, affording all the necessities for a resort. One feature about this park is that It lies alongside the Glacier Park in Montana. Glacier Park is the par- liko a fog in the halls and lobbies. In green chamber and red. But "It settled thickest lu No. 10, the Consorva-th-e caucus room, Gone is the light word, Iho sparkling anecdote-Colonel Hugh Clark has not told a new story for a week- the cheerful banter, the merry quip, the loud laugh that speaks the peaceful party mind. Gone-all gone. Instead, the long face, the bated breath, the whispered fenr. Our old friend R. E. Morse is in their midst and he looks like making a .ggod visit. The strikers all came bacic.but four. They were glad to be pleased with a royal coramlssion that would find out as little as posslhle-r-a'ny old excuse for falling out of bed ijnU falling back again. .But now they-tire not 90 glad. The biggest gallery- ot. the session greeted Sir Wilfrid's speech oij bloodstained sraft, a gallery more titan half women, which shows thpit the belter halt ot the world isthinklug. When Sir Wilfrid proclaimed-that the object ot all good patriots was to demand an account of-every -dollar-drawn from the treasury and every drop of blood shed on the battleficUl, the pallcry which had sons and brothers, husbands, and sweethearts on that distant, dangerous field showed signs of ^, ^,^,,,^,,u o.. o�.u deep emotion and the striker, realise-j uushSs? Has he any more right to o?i upe complete investigation than pais took a different view ot these thinjjs from the party politicians. In short they saw that tholn party gnmo was a long way behind public sonll-ment and they would have to catch up or lie left out In the cold nt the next general election. They wore sore then and are sore now that they did not go the limit like the Hon. Andrew Brodor. W, F. Mnolenn, Mondou and'lytvmarcho, who said by their votes that they would rather be right than hide-bound. Andy Broder, honest Andy as ho is called, has hart a run in with Colonel John Wesley Allison before now and knows just what to expect from this gentleman with the pious name and the predatory instincts, Mondou and l.a-marche displayed the ultimate courage ot their convictions and W. F. Maclean went the length ot standing by a weelv-old editorial of the Toronto World, which is almost revolutionary In W. F,'3 case. On the whole Xo. 16 is wrapped in profound regret that tt didn't show up bettor on tlie division. Nelson's maxim was that the boldest measures are the safest, and who are they to fio behind the ripe wisdom of that Croat leader? If safety llrBl is the line to take, why didn't they take it? It Mark Twain was prepared to sacrifice all his wife's relations, why shouldn't the Conservative party In the Hoiiso of Commons be prepared to sacritlfo Major General Sir Sam ed that stop-gap measures were not enough. They realized that the widows and orphans whose tears moistened the millions so lightly looted by Colonel John Wesley Allison and his F)1CKED UP IN ASSINGIZZZl FOR THE BUSY MAN the Duke of Marlborough who was one of the examples cited by Sir Wilfrid l.aurier? Sacrifice Sir Sam? Would he he the only sacrifice? ,,Aye. there's the rub: There's the cisnslderation that gives them pause. Wdiildn't it-mean the sacritlce of tht^,.-'wh61e govern-i ment?

But when all is said and done tlie talk .comes back to Sir Sam Hughes and his soul-mate, Colonel John Wesley Allison. Last session the war lord's critics were calling him Sir Sham Shoes. This session he goes by the name of Sir Sliam Fuse, It Is agreed on all sides that his friendship with Colonel John Wesloy .Allison Is one of the greatcBt. 'nrtost passionate and most cxpenKivora.fRnltieg^ of history. Not David and^ Jonath'an, nor OroEtea and Pylades, nor Demon and l^tliluH, ever t-oMt their (vountry bo much money. George Kytij has already advertised some of the gallant (harg(;H made liy (.'olonel John Wesley Allison, with Major Oenofal Sam Iho force In reserve, and there are said to be more where that came from. This naturally keeps no. IG guessing. Is Colonel John Wesley AllLfon to be the only goat or is Sir Sam to go out along with lilm. into the wllder-nesa? .Moreover, Is Sir Sam BatlBflod to have It thiit way? So far any spcechCH wlik'h would Indicato that Sir Sam is to be the goat have been framed with the idoa of not letting him know about It. Any absent tretjit-raenl Sir Sain luis had from his colleagues in tlie eablnet has been very delicate-hardly enough to -break an egg. Which, of course, Is as It should bo, because no man must be convicted before ho Is tried, ospocially if he is too respectable to be BuiHy,. On the whole it would su'it the cabinet hotter to have the wickotl Grits dla-lodge Sir Sarn. This would avoid hard foelings and tiiutuar riacrlmlna-tlouH In the t!onHervative riinks. At this writing Sir Bum is rapidly approiichlng his native Bhores and Go.Ionel Joliu \^e8lfly:.^lUfloo. hi** hoeii heard from. Tlio Colonel is as near Ottawa and the public accounts committee as Carolina. That will probably bo the Colonel's orbit until par-lian^ent prorogues and the royal commission begins. It will not be necessary to e.xtradlte Colonel John Wesley Allison for perjury. He is an Honorary Colonel of Sir_Sam's own coinage, made so as Sir Sam has stated, because honorary colonels are under military regulation.s and can be ordered about b'y their superior oillc-ers. Consequently the Colonel can bo ordered home-one word from Ottawa and he does as he pleases. Which means, of course, that orders or no orders, he will eome to Ottawa .to vindicate his honor, because-well because somebody put the honor In honorarj- colonel. Besides he Is not afraid of royal commissions, having already had experience of the Davidson commission where three klnde of evidence, all different, were tendered on that little matter of the Colts revolvers which were sold wholesale to the Canadian government for SfiM each more than the retail trade could buy them tor, in lots of two. No shot ever fired by a royal commission haS hurt so much a.s Colonel .Mlison's feelings. He is brave accordingly. The only really cheerful soul on the government side Is R. B. Bennett of Calgary who played safe in his last speech, when he hinted at dead repti-tations, post niorteraK and things like that. His Idea scpms to be that the government Is dissolntR enough to call for dissolution. As Knliskn ob-serye.s In the .Mikado, "Iher.j's a fas-cination frantic in a ruin that's romantic and 1 think I urn Rnlflt-iently decayed." At the back of it. n.'s speech there was probably the relloc-tion that tho remitins Imvo been kept too long already. At all events nearly all the Conservative colonels in the iiouse have blossomed out once more in tlieir khaki. Tho intention may bo to give the . government a mllltar)' funeral. H. F. G.
