Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 4, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, AUGUST 4,1OT7 THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE ELEVEN (CONTINUID IBOM FBOWT PlOlV I Wants a Parliament That Is Responsible, Not Just An Autocratic Machine Amterdam, Aug. 4-BurgomaHter Rclckcr of Berlin hits out with remarkable bluntticss in pnsslng judgment on the internal situation in Germany in on article In Monday's Berliner Zeltung Atnmlttag which hns juat roacliod here. Replying to a question aa to whether Germany, after three years of war, was able to reglstor gains internally as well as externally, Berlin's chief magistrate Said: "The anBwer is but a hesitating affirmative. . Wo soem to have become ThoBc who are not corrupted by the mammon chase are haunted with a fear lest, after all the country Is slipping hack into the rut of officialism. We arc still kept in leading strings; we are not really a free people We call for the bonefit of the counsel a dozen workmen, but the word is quietly passed from the .government table: 'These fellows cannot be told all. Just treat them liko , children.' "What is wanted is a parliament that has power, not a mere government machine, and a government of men who aro not educated to believe that a bureaucrat necessarily knows better than an ordinary mortal. Let us be a free people, but not merely free on paper." TRY TO DECEIVE UNCLE SAM Washington, Aug. 4,-Hundreds of men in the chief cities of the country, reports to the department of justice show, gave fictitious addresses fov draft regulation and are now being sought by government agents. Tn the private schools of China a teacher is paid about one halfpenny a native of profiteering hucksters. ' a day for each pupil ton-White Dominion chautauquas at Suite 431, Loughoed building. This was the f(ret of January,' 1917." The Chautauqua Ideal has more supporters throughout the North American continent than any other ono Institution. It is being fostered by more big business men than any other one Institution. It is backed financially in nearly six thousand towns on the continent by the biggest men in the communities as It is, in Calgary. The lecturing staff of the Chautauqua is of the highest type attainable, and this year Includes Ada L. � Ward, the famous English war lecturer. Capt. W. .1. Hlndley, formerly chaplain of 198th battalion, generally known, as the "Little Black DevilR," giving his wonderful lecture on the "Reign of the Common people,"" which deals with the life , and death of democracy of tho worldwide scope. v J. C. Horbsmnn, the whirl-wind community builder, and running mato to Toddy Roosevelt in tho west, who has done more to unite communities in the movement in which they aro Interested than nny other one man (who has g�jne through tho Dominion. J. Sherman Wallace in his wonderful plea for the-t'World's Greatest Need," education, and Dr. A. D. Carpenter in his desorljrtjve -astronomical -lecture, "World in the Making." And then with this strong lecturing staff there is music or entertainment every day. | Tho music consists of Witopskie Great Chautauqua orchestra, featur-1 ing Olive McCormick, the great symphony soloist, and the original Wai-! kiki Hawaiian quintet with the wear-i ied Hawaiian music, and Canada's ' foremost baritone, H. Ruthven Mac-!� Donald of Toronto, and. the Treble \ Clef club, the highest salaried ladies i quartet traveling, and other numbers which ths daily programs show." Lethbridge's ticket sale day resulted in something like half of the guarantee being sold, which was a little disappointing to the members who are pushing the movement. Mr. Dunham in commenting on the matter said: "Our people are a little backward in taking hold of the Chautauqua, but I am suro that it is because they do not understand. As soon as our business men and'people generally begin to realize tho possibilities of the Chautauqua, and the benefit it will bring to the people and the community as a whole, they will be as generous in the support of the movement as they are now reluctant In giving that support." It would seem that the fact that of the 40 Canadian cities who aro" entertaining the Chautauqua this year, every one of them have re-engaged it for next year, should be convincing evidence enough to make everybody boost. Mr. Qunharo further says that while he." IsMctuaJty,-Ifrom Missouri, there ar#, raere, ,>TScoplo ],cre tnilt "must be shown" than there are in the place whofS-Uie saying originated. CANADIAN SOLDIER LIVED HERE (CONTIHUBD #kom FltONT PaQE) APPEALS FOR UNION (Continued from Front Pago). Macklera was sent to a hospital in England, where ho remained five months. He had been shot through tho left side of tho teniplo by an explosive bullet, Which hurst, as it loft tho top of the nose Bevorely disfiguring his face. Pte. Macldem, though had the satisfaction of knowing that he had Just despatched several Huns with his own hands. He was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal, which, with the exception of the Victoria .Cross, is the highest honor which can be shown to a private. "I got it for killing three Huns and taking ono of our wounded officers away from diem," is the way tho young veteran soldier told of the affair. He lost the use of the left oyo, and his nose was severely damaged. Col. Maoklem'a Great Invention How he came to improve the hand grenade which Is how being used by all the British- forces is told by Col. Macklem himself. "I was convalescing at the hospital and how the Idea first came I really don't know. But I knew then that hundreds of our boys at the front had lost their lives with the time grenader. They had a lever and pin. The pin had to be pulled and then tho thing was ready to go in about five seconds. Premature explosion or delay in throwing meant certain death to our own boys. I know that several Toronto boys were killed in that way." The new invention is cheaper, carries more explosive, and is tar less dangerous in handling. Col. J. D. Courtney, a British CO., wrote: "This bomb has been proved in tests and If born out in actual use, means the saving of thousands and thousands of lives in the British service." It has since been universally adopted for use. In January, 1916, he was discharged from the C.E.F., "being no longer physically fit for war service." On his discharge he was Immediately taken on the staff of the Imperial Munitions Staff at London, with the rank of cap'-tain, In recognition of his service. Six weeks later his services merited the rank of major, for he had meanwhile invented a shell "detonator" which is said to make artillery shells equally effective withont the brass caps and fittings which.Are very costly. This latest invention has been inspected and approved of by the British government, and by its use the Munitions Board has figured.a saving of approximately $516,000' per (lay on the total output in the "British Isles. Since its acceptance by rth�' Government the inventor has been'raised to the rank of of colonel. .. . 38,000 IN FOR I HELP ish parltmont with cmharrasment to them and discredit to ourselves. I roalfzo tho extreme tmdosirability of an election during tho war and l have done my utmost to avoid it. The responsibility must bo on the shoulders of those who opposed the extension. "A general election gives an opportunity for a campaign of education which may bring about a fuller realisation of tho realities of this war. Far removed from the scene of conflict, it Is difficult for us to comprehend its character, its magnitude or the desolation which has been brought to some oY the fairest portions of Europe. I hope that tho campaign will be characterized by absence of passion and by moderation of statements. I hope, and more than that believe, tho result will demonstrate the essential unity of our people and their strong and stern rcsolvo that Canada shrill not falter in her appointed task.'r Following, the. Interview with Sir Robert Borden the wln-the-war delegates hold a meeting and gave out the following unanimous .statement: "Tho members of the : delegation wish It to bo known that they are entirely satisfied with the Prime Minister's reception of the views put forth by him. They were particularly impressed by the earnestness and sincerity of Sir Robert Borden's exposition of the steps he is taking to form a non-partisan, union government. Thoy are confident he will succeed, and that such a government will receive the undivided support of all tho win-tho-war elements throughout the Dominion. "Sir Robert Borden convinced the delegation that for constitutional reasons it is now impracticable to avoid a general election. "Tho delegation therefore, believe that a nation Wide campaign of education must; atonce be 'launched to dem-ohstrato, .the.! .e.soiitlal unity of Canada for the. .utmost; prosecution of the war."  -�'�.�-* Winnipeg, Aug.
