The Hus-Blans are pressing their advantage to the utmost. On the western front the French have reached the outskirts of .Maur-Ipaff, north-east of Hardecourt. capturing the whole sysioni of German trenches on a front of 300 metres. JIany prisoners wore taken. The Urit-Ifh have advanced their po.sts on the plateau near Bazcntiu Le-l'etll. At Ypres the Canadians conducted successful bombing raids. The English east coast is being again made the object of Zeppelin attacks. another effort to settle their differ-uncos. Wc uro glad that the l.eln-bridge minors, who have heretofore enjoyed the highest reputation for playing fair, hno sone br.cU to work pending a sottUnuent of their dispute. Their action In walking out Inst Thursday was calculated to cmbarass a critical situation. N'ow Uiat the employers and the employed are In conference wo would urge them both to use their utmost discretion that an nmlcahlo and satis-faolory solution of the wage difficulty might be found. Uet them remember that Canada Is at war. hundreds of our men are In khaki, and It is up to us who have remained at home to make the best use of all available labor to the end that we may keep the country in the very best state commercially and otherwise against the day when our boys come homo again. To the oiicrators. who Iinvo already shown a willingness to meet the miners part way. we would say that the general public is not alarmed at the prospect of paying a little more for coal, and as the cost of living has risen It is tiulle reasonable that the men should bo paid more to meet advancing prices. To the miners we would like to say that, though labor conditions are such that the present looks like a good time to drive a hard bargain, the public remembers every minute that we are at war and is not very sympathetic toward those who try to make selfish use of the fact. You have signed an agreement good until next April 1, and that fact, too, should be remembered. Knowing the facts we can see no reason why there should not ho an early and satisfactory settlement of the dispute. The country expects It, and will judge harshly of the parly which may precipitate a strike at this time. HEAT AFFECTS n-ORONTO "NEWS" EDITOR Poor old "L'ntaria" is having the worst heat s>.:e'l of a decade. The superheated atmospuer,; has attacked the editor of the Toronto Xews, who breaks out in a most virulent ram-page, thus; "To restore Sir Wilfrid Uiurier to power would be to throw away all the fruits of our sacrifices and to establish In office a political parly which contains all those who look towards separation and most of those who will neither wear a uniform nor contribute a dollar to protect and pre-�erve free British institutions." For the sake of the deer old News let us pray for a thunderstorm, a blli;-xavA and a killing frost to strike Toronto all at once. Otherwise the party who penned the above slander will shortly be a fit subject for the asylum. MAKE FRIDAY A DAY WORTH REMEMBERING Friday is August the 4th, the second anniversary of that Tuesday In 1914, when Britain declared war against Prussian militarism. On that memorable day excitement ran high. We knew not what was before us. Today we believe we are "over the hiU" with a victorious conclusion in sight. Such being the case we hope that citizens wil unite on l-Yiday to com-"meliorate the occasion of our entrance into the war, and we hope It will be done in such a way throughout the Dominion that the world will know we ha%'e no other thought than victory, Lethbridge has many sons fighting at the front. Let us commemorate the occasion here In a way that will inspire them by our very confidence, �when news reaches them of our action. One might almost truthfully say. 'These be Uie dog days." The old familiar d. and d. has passed into the class with the dinosaur and other prehistoric creatures. That last U. S. note to Britain indicates that Wilson Is keeping his hand in. The Turks have massacred SOO.OOO Armenian civilians. Nice neighborly neighbor, the Turk! The Kilties need about 100 more men. This is our battalion. It is up to Lethbridge to see that the required number Is procured. Lethbridge's Importance as an agricultural centre is shown by the C. P. R.'s decision to make it a distributing centre. That 40,000,000 bushel crop of 1915 talks yet. WESTERN FARMERS JUST AS LOYAL AS EVER The Calgary News-Telegram says: "The United Farmers of Alberta Imve given 16 per cent of their membership to the cause of the Empire. That is a record which, wc venture to Bay, will make the farmers of every other province sit up and take notice. A few years ago some wise gentlemen down around the province of Quebec and the city of .Montreal were fearful lest the farmers of Alberta should show symptoms of disloyalty. But the records of the recruitine sergeants prove just where the most loyal Canadians are llvlne." We have distinct recollections of some of our eastern friends who in 3911 moved heaven and earth to oouvince Canadians that Western Canada farmers who wanted to ship their wheat to U. S. markets, were just waiting for the chance to throw off- the "yoke" of Hrltam and annex tliemKplvos to Uncle Sam, "The thin edge of the wedge," did you ever hear the phraser The Calgary News-Tele-fcTam has changed Its political garb since that memorable time, but we ore pleased to sea it still stand up and defend the loyalty of the Western farmer, whose action.;, however. In this war, speak louder than any Hp loyalty. -_i-,-i_.-, PUBLIC, EXPECTS SETTLEMENT OF COAL FIELDS' DISPUTE The Herald Is heartily glad to leurn tji(it the niiuorH and operators of Dla-tl'ipt; No. IS have come together )n To Wage War On Canadian Thistle (From our own Correspondent). Raymond, July 31.-That the weed branch of the department of agriculture intends to wage a relentless war on the troublesome Canada thistle, was the information supplied the Herald last Saturday by Oliver Blue, of the department, who in company with the local weed inspector, W. B. Nalder, covered the district on a tour of inspection. It is the opinion of Mr. Blue that the Canada thistle is the worst weed Southern Alberta has to contend with, this fact calling for special attention by the authorities. "It this weed is not destroyed, it will undoubtedly overrun the country," said the chief inspector. A special appeal is being made to the farmers to unite with the department in the fight for a weedless province. With the appointment yesterday of R. J. Gordon to the position of second assistant superintendent of Sunday schools of the Taylor stake of the "Mormon" church, the head of that organization shifts from Raymond to Lethbridge, there now being two out of three superintendents in that city, Supt. 0. F. Ursenbach and the new assistant. This action was taken at the union meeting of S. S. workers held in the Knight Academy building yesterday afternoon, and was made nec-OHsary by the removal of B. H. Smith from Alberta. TllF. TIIHEE DE cKXKKATIONS Satisfaction TVORY SOAP floats. This alone makes it more desirable than ordinary soaps. But, in addition, it is extraordinarily good soap.
