Tlic German answer is fraught with grave possibilities. It la now practically a question of Germany abandoning her whole naval program which she has adopted lo offset the allied blorkado of German port!. which tho Allies have such an overwhelming po'ential supericriry. Men, after all, have proved to be, in n "reat measure, seroudary In modern war. Consldo'.ing but tho two main factors that affect modern fighting on a largo scale, money and munitions, the mobilization of finances and of manufacturing industries, Germany falls so far below the resources of the Allies that tho longer the war lasts the more hopeless her position becomes. Serious German Defeat The justification of this point ot view, tho proof of It beyond the shadow of a doubt-this is w^hat tho battle ot Verdun will prove if it results in light was dimmed at Liege and Nnmur when tho Kaiser's troops were hold up and delayed for precious days and was utterly oxtingulBhed at tho Marno, Germany has mado tho battle ot Verdun hor groat effort, tho greatest of tho war. All tho terrible mnchluory of wnr that Gorman and Auatrinn niimls have evolved has been tried. The great guns that mado such short shift ot tho supposed linpregnahlo fort-essea of the Belgian cities have boon brought into play, concentrated in numbers that no other Bocllon ot tho battle area on any front 1ms snen. Great guns and small, all calibres, thousands of machine guns, great masses of infantry, going forward in succnsslvo waves and sufTeriug iiu?on-ceivnblo losses, have boon thrown tor-ward time and time again against the French Hues. The poisonous gases, barred by international agreement but introduced by Germany with such terrlllc efl'oct In front ot Ypres, have been thrown forward in clouds over tho French positions. Liquid flro, shooting out ahead of the attacking intuntry like so many gigantic dragons' tongues, have .�joared the French Infantry as they manned their rifles. Nothing vr.s omitted, no machine not run to capacity. But the French lino is still intact. All of Gcrnuiny's nllios .and tho German public either knows now or =iiim will kiicnv how serious and tremendou tiio German effort has been. If It I tails. Germany has told them all most 'eloquently that she can do nothing on the western front but exert every effort to hold her own. What tho effect of such an admission will be no ono can foretell. That Germany with all the boasting that has been done by her clever and tireless press agents, could possibly letalu the prestige which she has created through her many successful and brilliant feats of arms is impossible. And tho Verdun battle is really a battlo tor prestige, a Economy. With LEA & PERRINS' Sauce, a feu) drops on/y are necessary to give a delicious and appetizing flavour to the plainest dish. A far larger quantity of a cheaper sauce � fails lo give the same salisfaclion. The Original and Genuine Worcestershire ence with maritime commerce by the entente allies, has been cabled to Washington. The communication consists of two parts, a long note and a supplement signed by the French government. Since its arrival at Washington certain cable changes have been made in the original note. Germany demands the release of the prisoner and the return of the papers. OPPOSITION BENT ON CREATING SUSPICION The Conservative opposition at Edmonton seems more bent on creating No more important session of the legislature has ever been held than that just closed. The prohibition and woman suffrage bills are very advanced pieces of legislation. The suggestion that various parts suspicion than in making direct char-"'^"'iT I'^^k '^'^ ges.

But he made specific charges which are altogether different from j the charges of Dr. Blow and Mr. Campbell. It is easy enough to suspect wrong-doing, but it is another matter to make specific charges. If 1 be a serious German defeat-all the more serious because it would be something that Germany could not hide before the world, could not explain even with all the ingenuity of her press agents. It would be an admission of what the Allies have consistently claimed- that Germany's The time will come when we will erect some memorial to these brave men, and what more pleasing way could be found than that suggested. It would insure popular interest in in khaki. royal commissions were to be created ; "'^ city's biggest playground. What on charges of the character of thoEe ! Gardens have done to comme-made by Dr. Blow and Mr. Campbell, ! morale the name ot Gait. Henderson the judges throughout Canada would �be occupied with nothing else than Investigating rumors. Dr. Stanley's charges could have been investigated in the house by committees appointed for the purpose. If anything really serious had been revealed, then there could have been a royal commission. If iJr. Stanley was really in earnest he should have used the investigating resources at hand. The government should have given him the fullest opportunity for such an inquirj-. as for the Blow and Campbell resolutions, they are ridiculous until backed up with speclBc instances of wrong doing. The opposition is merely trying to shake confidence In the Alberta government by creating suspicion and circulating rumors. Let them satisfy the people with real definite charges, or shut up. r)lCKED UP IN ASSiNGiZZZIl FOR THE EXJSY- MAN GERMANY MUST ANSWER TO U. S. AT LAST Uncle Sam has spoken. Germany has at last heard In plain language that her inhuman submarine warfare must be abandoned and that she must give assurances to this effect "in word and deed" or the United States �will forthwith break diplomatic relations with her. And if history sots any precedent in such cases, that means war. � Germany can blame no nation but herself lor this action ot the United States. Times without number, ever since the Lusitania crime, the United States has protested to Germany against her submarine tactics which have broken every rule ot international law. The United States, in fact, has almost made herself the laughing stock of the world by her repeated acceptances of German promises that no further vessels would be sunk without warning. Promises have been made, but Germany of "scrap o' paper" fame has no Eoone"r mado them than they have been broken. The sinking of the Sussex with the loss ot American lives was the last straw, and now the United States has taken the only honorable course left open. Her latest note to Germany is practically an ultimatum �without a time limiti It win likely be three or four days before the German foreign ofldce can reply to the ultimatum. Those will George H. Phillips, who for a brief | but theatrical period enjoyed the title j ot "Corn King" in the grain trade, \ died in Chicago.
