THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. The news regarding the situation � on the Flanders front over the -weekend is much more cheerful for the Allies. Although the British and French have as yet been unacle to recapture Kemmel hill from the Germans, they have strengthened their lines in other ways, and the main lines are being held firmly. The Germans have been unable to exploit Kemmel hill as that advantageous position could be exploited. They have been held too firmly by the Allies to make any use . of the post whatever. Posts captured ht the Germans near Festubert over Sunday have been recaptured by the British. The Canadians have been active, and in three raids have taken German prisoners. present fcime, and that output is greater, by a safe margin, than the enormous needs of the British armies. Bin after the war, what Is going to happen? Perhaps Fredorlck Harrison, in his "Obiter Scripta," giveis some hint of tlie solution. Mr. Harrison refers to the proposal made by one of the new industrial peor.s-'Ix)rd Levorhulme: that great industries like his own should bo run on short shifts, the argument being tliat it is waste to lot machines stand Idle for fourteen or sixteen hours out of the twenty-four. Shifts of six or seven hours each', arranged so that none would have regular night work, -would mean increased production and eighteen hours to each worker for sleep, rest, amusement and education. A great scheme ^hat. with reciprocity on both sides! You wonder that nobody ever thought of it before. Rut somebody did think of it in 1S72. Lord Brassey proposed it, and Mr. Ifarrison -was Its advocate in a series of articles in the "Beehive," an organ of trade unionism. When the war ends, and the read-j�.ne method of treatment. That was to remove it troi^ fllsht a?^ write s6me..uncomplI-faentarir reference to the spot where the word appeared.' The change of heart on the part of the southern elnner has been due to the policy of this city Irii tearing up the land and planting things in it, and the confession of the Herald Is as follows: Once in a while we have to take off our hats to Calgary, and this is one of those times. The city has secured some 200 acres which it will farm, and arrangements have been made with 17 tractor dealers to plow and disc the land. This will be done free but the city is undertaking to -advertise the demonstration and the tractors taking part therein. It is a good scheme, and might well be follow^od In I^ethbridge if a little energy were displayed to arrange plana. So wonders do not cease. The world does move. V.Tiile the light holds out to burn, etc., etc. if. you do not believe It jusf. take a look at the changn 'in the Lethbridge Herald.-Calgary i Albertan. No-rt', would you say those Calgar-lans yfere "spoofing" us? / A PLEA FOR GOOD ROADS You can't send away for good roads. The work must be done at home. The worst enemy of good Toads is put-of-K^wn buying. . ^Xlood roads and trading at home go band in hand. Howard Fagan Tells of Hun Doctrines-Tilt With Conscientious Objectors The Fornm wound up its winter season yesterday afternoon in a blaze of glory when Rev. Howard Fagan spoke on "Why we are at war with Germany," in which he outlined the philosophy of Germany which is responsible for the strength of the militarlstg and junkers in that country. The largest crowd which has yet attended a session of the Forum .was on hand, and after a tine musical program and Rev. Mr. Fagan's address, the meeting was thrown open for one of the most interesting hours a Forum audience has yet had. W. Symonds opened the free speech debate in which he made a hot attack on the "conchies." The role of the conscientious objectors received his attention to such a degree that on his taking his seat Dr. Lovering took off his coat and came to their defense. Hei said he had changed his mind about the war In the past three years. He would not go into the trenches to kill men of the enemy but he wiis how willing to do any other war work. He rather gloried in the young men who refused to don tlie khaki, taking the alternative of serving two years Itl jail because they stood by their conscientious con-vicfions. Xomes Back Strong Mayor Hardie came bjck with a mild attack, and then a visitor in the city arose. He -said-be was 68 years of age ,and haa been a minister of the gospel for 36 years,  -The-fact that he had been a minister didn't mean that he needed kid'gloves to handle Dr. Lovering, and he did it in a way that appeared to be to the entire satisfaction of all concerhed. Men who voiced the sentiments � expressed publicly by the doctor, he said, were responsible for encouraging slackers. He would like to see the doctor in uniform, ho said, and promised that within 24 hours he would be able to offer his friend a commission In the Canadian Army Medical Corps. Hot Tilt A tilt between B. F. Wakelln and Donald McNabb followed. Mr. Wakelln declared he would not go Into the trenches and fight, that It was a conscientious objection with him. He put forth the well known^ argument of the "conchies." Mr. McNabb,, replying, statert that men who-littered such seu-tlmenfca were ^llaloyal, and should be ho treated. Any man Vho' could hot fight on I lie Hide of the allies in this wiir was no man at all. R. Barrow-man presided over the meeting and had an interesting time of It. Mr. Fagan's Fine Address^ Hov. Mr. Kagai) in his addrexs, -ivhich was carefully pjiiBpkred and well de-�* liTered, marshalled his facts from the German books on war and philosophy. He quote dfrcm many of the leading German writers, from Yon BemhardI to "His Most Satanic Majesty, the Kaiser," as he put It. He brought out six principles of Oerman thought, which for years had been instilled into the minds of the Qerman people, and quoted German wilters In each instance: 1. Germany believes she is a .'superior nation, chosen of God to lead the world. , 2. Germany .believes in the doctrine that might makes right. 3. Germany believes she has the right to dominate the world. 4. Germany believes in war as an economic political ^nd biological necessity. 5. Germany believes that the end Justifies the means. S. Germany stands for an unlimited military autocracy lor the whole wide w^orld. In a ringing peroration that brought forth round after round of applause Rev. Mr. Fagan declared that ,the world must defeat the German monster that advanced such blasphemous principles, and he had no doubt that the allies would win. A philosophy such as the Germans advanced could not stand. London, April 27.-In a special preface to a volume containing extracts from the premier's war speeches, David Lloyd George says; ' "1 never believed that the war would be a short war or that In some mysterious way, by negotiation, or compromise, we could free Burope from the malignant military autocracy which is endeavoring to trample it into submission and moral death. "The events of the last few weeks must have 'made it plain to every thinking man that there is no lonser room for compromise between xhe Ideals for which we and our enemies stand. Democracy and autocracy have come to the death grip; one or the other will fasten its hol^ on mankind. "There Is no time lor ease, delay or debate. The call Is Imperative; the choice is clear. It is (or eacli free citizen to do hia part^' Arrangements arc being made to send children of Paris to primary schools In the provinces to protect them from the enemy's long-range bombardment. ^PICKED UPlNj* PASSIJVG T�B 0Osr M4ff Boston has now Joined hands With Ohlyagb, New York and Pittsburg in the matter of cheaper taxi fares.
