ROUND THE CIRCUE OF THE WAR The baslB of compromise which has been reached between the warring factions of the British cabinet, on the recruiting problem, was announced In secret session of the House of Commons Tuesday, and Premier Asqulth made It known to the public yesterday. The Toluntary system is to be given one more trial. If at the end of four weeks ending May 27, 50,000 men haye not enlisted, parliament will be asked to confer powers of com-pulsorj- military service without more delay. Germany's answer to the United , States, it is expected, will be delayed till ^Saturday. Count Von Bemstorft has'cabled to his home ofBce the basis of what he believes will be a satisfactory settlement of the .controversy. Americans, believing a break with Germany is certain, are beginning to leave Germany. Zeppelins again raided the coast of England Tuesday'night, dropping one 'hundred bombs. ARBOR DAY- "DO YOUR BIT" On Its last opportunity the Herald �would urge upon the good citizens of Lethbridge to put every other duty aside and go to Henderson Park to-morrqw to join In the big Arbor Day program. One lo^k about our city, one look at Gait Gardens, should provide the incentive. Lethbridge is becoming known far and wide as a city of trees In a prairie province. We have proven that WB can grow trees here with Kreat success, and knowing that we should let no opportunity pass without doing our share to further the good work so well started. Henderson Park is only beginning to show what is capable of being done there. A little concentrated effort now will make us all proud of the place ten years hence. Let us every one get out to the park tomorrow^-early- and "do our bit." Patriotism and Production! The new Hun attack in Lorraine is German admission of a French victory at Verduii. When Calgary has to come to Lethbridge to buy native-grown trees you'll admit we are progressing. According to reJK)rt, the farm labor slUlatiott is not serious. There is enough to supply the farmers so that they may feel safe in putting lu every acre possible. Marse" Henry's Views on Note Lethbridge, for the first time In its histor>-, will entertain the Alberta Methodist conference during the last few days of May and the first week of June. We are becoming better known as a convention city, and we must look our prettiest when the sky pilots come among us. Alberta teachers are considering a pension system. In this they ought to receive the support of every school board and parent in the province. Too much cannot be done to encourage the teaching profession so that the teacher may hove something to look forward to who devotes his or her whole life to the work. A member of the 13th O. M. R. complains that the men of that unit are subjected to many nasty insinuations and Jokes at their expense because they have not yet gone to the front. This is most unjust to the men of the 13th' *ho are just as anxious to get into the front lines as any other unit. It is not the fault of the men; they are the victims of circumstances not of their own making. Calgary is haying another row about the deprecia,tibn fund charges on her street railway system. Supt. McCauley says |30,000 a year is an outrageously large amount. Commissioner Graves says it is about right. If the Calgary system were a privately owned one, how much taxes would It be made to pay annually? That Is one test. Lethbridge soaks its street railway over $6000 taxes annually, and other public utilities similar amounts. Waterloo County Council proposes to Insure married soldiers for $1,000 and single ones for $500.00. Henry Wattcrson, tho veteran editor of tlie Louisville Courier-Journal, whose pro-ally sympRthles are well Icnowo, has this comment in his paper in the Wilson ultimatum: "The crisis which seems at InsVao tually to have arrived as to the International relations of the Urilted States and German>i, b.ut which from the first was forogeon by discerning I people, and for more than a year has bean suspended a Damocles sword over both countries, should give pause for reflection to those hyphenates who wore prompt to welcome and follow after an imperial propaganda set on foot In Berlin and let loose upon the neutrality, the poaco and order of America. "Thoy approved the submarine and aerial campaigns of frlghtfulness In Europe. They denied the pro-Kaiser campaign of industrial anarchy and r.uin in the United States. All the while the Kaiser's agents here were making covert war upon us� the Kaiser himself adroitly playing for time, treating our protests as so many scraps of paper and coolly, wantonly proceeding with the do-Btruction of our property and the murder of our people.. "At length double dealing caa go no further. That patience, which long ago wore to a frazzle with the mass and body of patriotic Americans the government of Berlin has exhausted with tho government of the United States. We have come to a parting of the ways. How stands the account with those foolish and shortsighted hyphenates among us whose loyalty to Berlin has quite blinded them to Washington? Are they ready tor the camps of internment, or will j they prefer to cross the seas again | and Join tlie colors of the Hohenzol-' lem and the Hapsburg?-"To hell with them." "Yes, "to hell with them!' and all their ways and works but not to hell with the German people, the simple, believing,, the cruelly deceived German people; the brave, the brawny lads of the Hartz mountains and the Schwarzwald, the gentler heroes, of the "Beautiful Blue Danube," the wronged artisans of Stuttgart and Wurtemberg, and Munich; the poets and peasants, the artists and students of the "Tyrol and tho Rhine and the Vaterland of Goethe and Kroner, of Beethoven, and Mo-itart, driven blindly to slaughter, fed jlike dogs to powder, to perpetuate ; the right divine of decaying dynas-I tics, the waning power of mediaeval autocracy, the despotism of the saber rattler and the tyranny of cas-tlsm. "God bless the uoblc, patient puissant, helpless people of Germany. jAs mistaken as the noble, patient, ; rulssant people of the Confederacy j they have fought and are fighting as wondrous, as Inflexible and as futile !a battle. "There can be but one end of it. iTKEBIZOND TAKEN mies loo' Lvan.�S5^'i: < If the worid is not again to sink in-Harry K.

"PATRIOTISM AND PRODUCTION" AGAIN The Dominion government s once more advocating greater p. uctlon on tho Canadian farm. "F * 'otlsm and Production" is* once i. t the slogan. The newspapers frc... jLtlan-tio to" Pacific are being usi J ,b Impress upon the farmers the urgent need of making every acre do duty this year. The Herald heartily supports the government campaign. The man behind the plow can be just as patriotic In 1916 as he was in 1915. It is true there may be more obstacles in the way of a big acreage this year than Pleas j not before us, the gigantic bloodthirsty, savage dominion of Prussian militarism must be as completely Ivlng's and regimental colors, the � dissolved as the armies of the South gift of the Ketcheson family of Hast-' In the great war of sections in.
