A statement from Petrograd shows that the Russians have been active in another quarter, namely, the Black Sea, where they have sunk over SOO Turkish snips recently.

OUR OPINION OF A RUMOR The Caigarv 'Xows Telegram is messing about the composition of the Alberta Utilities Commission. No one knows yet whom tie government appoint out the News Telegram seems to thlnfe Lieutenant Governor Bulyea. -will be the chairman. There has been a rumor to this effect bat we hardly believe fiat the provincial government has decided upon appoint- ments- However, if the name men- lioned is being considered we wouW to the government that it would oe a mistake to appoint to such a commission a gentleman who has had his full share of public honors and lias been separated from relationship with public enterprises for some time. The Public" Utilities Commission in order to serve the purpose for which it is intended, should be composed of thoroughly practical. competent men. At the time the Dill creating ihe commission 'was under discuision in the Legislature the Premier de- clared it .was not to be used as a shelf for party favorites but that tits memSers would he chosen on their merits alone. We are trusting that the Premier will cany out his prom- ise; if he does the ntmor given pub- licity through the News Telegram will not likely come true. SIR WILFJHB'S NOBLE WORDS The absolute necessity of Canada giving all possible help to Great Bri- tain and her Allies in the present rDy Sir Wilfrid Laurier in a speech he recently made in the city of Quebec. At the present time, Sir Wilfrid BaW, another page was heing written in Canada's history. That page, the most glorious of all was being enact- ed on tto battlefields of France, a page which would record that the Canadians had changed the tide of defeat into victory and which made every man in this country prouder than ever to be called a Canadian. Sir Wilfrid then continued: "We have, already spent enormous sums. We are spending millions daily. If more money ii required, let us give it. The country is rich and full of resources. We must he convinced that there is involved the conserva- tion of the country itself for Can- adians, its very existence, an auton- omic 'and free country, and we are therefore interested in the highest degree tnat tho war come to a close as soon as possible and that the ter- mination he a brilliant victory for our arrpM. Our sola object -must ibe the crashing of tyranny and lihpriy-rie- stroying principles, the definite tri- umph of civilization and justice. It is only when we have accomplished our doity.as a nation that'our obliga- tion to humanity shall have been ful- filled. From this very moment, new duties and new are facing ue, and among others and io assure at home peace complete and permanent which can only arise from tile respect of equal justice to all, and_ to minorities, in all the rights guaranteed them by the con- stitution." OUR MIPiT OF VIEW AND COUNTRY NEED YOU RIGHT NOW! General is in the The Day's Best Story John Jtedmond, the Home Rule lead- er, in a recent speech told an amus- ing story as to how he declined a Cabinet post. He said: In replying to this toast I am tempted to avoid making a speech and to supply its place by telling you a story. Tou will all agree that.the offer to an Irish politician of a post is a rare event, and is sometimes surrounded with elements of difficulty, especially when it is an offer to a member of our party to join the Cabinet. Such an honor has been my lot, and the hon- our was conveyed in this way. Late n the evening a cypher telegram along. It WPS intended, ii ap- peared, for me. It came to "Dublin or, rather, "care of Dublin Castle." A young Snglish gentleman who was entrusted with its ultimate delivery, ascertained that I WES at the at an eagle's eyrie in Wicklow ___ity, and to that interesting spot he departed at half-past ten o'clock at night, and there he found that I was away. He was told by my old housekeeper that "he is stopping at his house in Dublin." The gentleman went accordingly to a neighboring tel- egraph office, where the proprietor, or proprietress, thinking he was a German spy, promptly refused to give him any information, and shut the door in his face. The young gentle- man then started at eleven o'clock at night to find me in my "country house" in the neighborhood of Dub- lin. After some interesting adven- tures, he arrived somewhere, knock- ed up the local police officer, got my address, got into a motor, and arrived in fact at my house at, say, half-past two in the morning. After knocking vigorously at the door my old cook came to the front. She was a Wex- ford woman, an old friend of the fam- ily. Thinking of old times, she thought the message was a prelimin- ary to my going to prison. She took in the situation, and looking out at the door, saw the policeman and the other young man, and when she asked what they wanted, they said: 'They came from Dublin Castle. Yes. and they wanted Mr. Redmond." Remem- bering old times, the good old soul slammed the door in the face of the emissaries, and said: "There is no John Redmond here.'' A friend of mine, .appreciating the circumstances, brought in the policeman and the nice young emissary, and then at 3 o'clock ['was as solemnly as possible pre- sented with, the complimentary offer of -a place in the Cabinet." I think, gentlemen, he concluded, that story is interesting, suggestive, and some- what amusing. You all know the re- sult. I then and there, in a somewhat unceremonious verbally re- fused, -and nest day sent it more of- ficially, hut never for moment had any doubt as to the answer. It is a curious instance of the relations be- tween the Irish the Irish Party, and the British Cabinet, that a rreat honor should be conveyed in such a way, and received by an Irish member through the medium of a Faithful and friendly cook.

RICKED UP .IN SSING FOR THB HAN TO ANY FATHER OR GERMAN DESIGNS ON THE U.S. (From a, letter in the St. Paul Pioneer Press) Let .us see what, the United States s to expect should Germany win in the present war. It was William C. Whitney who, thirty years ago. began the work of building up and expand- Rg our navy, which has gone on ever since. Just why he did it is now re vealed for the first time to the great mass of American peonle. Sir Gil- bert Parker. British author ?.nd pre- sent member of parliament, has Just published a book, entitled "The World n the Crucible: An Account- of tha Conduct of the Great War." In it he tells of a conversation between him- self and the late William C. Whitney at Alken, S.C., in 1901, in which the latter said: "You think that Germany has de signs on the British position, that she wants and will strike for Great Bri- tain's colonies as soon as she has a navy. Do not fash yourselves, as the Scotch say. We will be taking on before that times comes. Little' as we shall like it, we wilt mve to do your wort for you. She su't cured yet of her designs on South America. She will try it on ind try it on, ami she will try it on jnce too often. She wants to chal- enge the Monroe Doctrine, and she will do it if she thinks she can do t safely, if she thinks the united itates not fighL "You saw what happened at Man- la. T'here the British played up in ityls. Dewey had more than moral support from you there. Well, 1 tell vo.u that when I was secretary to the lavy.under Cleveland, I saw that Ger- many meant to grab Brazil and Bol- via and Venezuela, and any other portion of South America, which was oo weak to reslit we let her. made un my mind that my country wouldn't jet her slice off one little chunk from the Monroe Doctrine. You didn't notice any decline in the Am- _ 'lean navy under my administration, did you? No. Well, Germany made ne work harder than I ever did in my ife. Don't worry. We will ha-ve. to do your work for you." Alas, that the memories of many of us are so short! Have we quite forgotten the mean, offensive conduct of Admiral Deitrich, commander ot e German fleet in Philippine waters 18S8 who did his best to pick a quarrel with Dewey after the Ameri- can victory in the battle of Manila 3ey? And have wo also forgotten how promptly Oreat Britain gnelched the ittempted European combination ag- ainst the United .States, and in favor of Spain? As a St. Paul rhymster put t at the time: 'But for the Lion, on o.ur necks A1I Europe might right now he roost- FOR SUMMER HOMES Drinking Water Rendered Immune From Typhoid By Montserrat. Most epidemics of Typhoid are raceable to impure water. City people going to the country for iie summer months or even for week" ends, very often bring back Typhoid germs owing to vegetable decomposi- ion in lake, river and well water. The ilacterioiogists at. MeGIIl Uni- jrsity have proven ti'nat a small quantity of Montserrat Lime .luice rill destroy Typhoid germs in water, n twenty minutes. Typhoid can be prevented at home ir at the country cottage by using Montserrat Lime .itftce." It makes the ater absolutely immune, besides pro- viding a wholesome, cooling and thirst assuaging beverage. Keep a .pitcher of this healtiiy bev- erage in the Ice box.

'The uravc-r's ol tlic regiments now being raised in Montreal all tell the same story, of how .young men, ready to il'V colors, arc being dis- suaded or forbidden by their fathers and mothers. The cause of this interference with vhe patriotic impulse- of your son is natural and easily to be understood. Vour boy is the apple of your eye. You have niven him birth, watched over him in health and.sickness, edu- cated him, and now, in the full llui'h of his numhooii, ymi are asked to send turn to, the iieiii oi battle to certain hardship, to possible death. No wonder your hearts contract at thf and a hundred reasons come rushing to support, your instinc- tive decision that he must not go. Me is too young lie has not com- pleted his education ho is not too robust other mothers and lathers have many sons, you have but one., there will be enough men without vour son let those who made the. war fight the war, and so on, and so on. But, after all, the one all-con troll ins reason why you will not let him go" is that you love him better than liie. and you cannut face the sorrow that would be upon you were he to die. Has it occurred to you that such an attitude of mind Is sublimated selfishness You are thinking, not oi vour country or of your boy, but oi yourself. His pain, if he die, will be short yours will be Long, and you refuse 'to face it. The hardships bl the field he will bear with a light heart you will think of them day and night, and you shrink irotn the prospect. His wounds he would count as honorable as medals you would consider them only in terms oi pain, und therefore you say him nay. What of Your Duty to Your Son? Cannot you see, you who take this course, who assume this attitude, that you are intensely selfish, and in vour selfishness are doing your son a grievous injury lie desires to serve his country, you stilic this desire, this fine impulse of ingenuous youth, and thereby teach him that public spirit and love of country not, in your eyes, oi supreme value. You lower his' ideals, and send him out into the world with the lesson taught and learned that it is best to look after his own interests first; that he owes no duty to his fellowmen which should interfere with his pleasures (r his gains.

Why did he shirk The question will stare him in the face all his life, and you are responsible lor the flush with which ho must meet it. What of Your Duty to Your Neighbor? If you keep your boy from doing his duty, do you realize that you are throwing on some other father and mother the anliety and sorrow that should be yours If your son does not do this work that has to he done then some other lad must fill his place. Some other brave boy must offer his body as a target, for Oer nan bullets, and his chances oi death will be increased because your son is not there to help. Are you prepared to face your conscience during all the vears' that are to come, when it tells you that your act helped to lose the day when the Canadian lines were not strong enough, and somebody else's father andi mother had to pay the penalty you escaped by. keeping vour boy at home. What of Your Duty to Your Country? Is it nothing to you, this Canada, this Empire Do you realize that its existence is at stake Or are you hugging to your breast the delusion that this war is, like .the Boer war, one' that may he costly but cannot be serious It is so serious that ii Germany wins, the very least penalty Britain "will pay will be to'live in deadly terror of the world's greatest military power hent on revenge.

For your honor's sake, (or the sake oi hoy's ideate and his own good nameT for "the sake of Canada and Empire, for the sake oi humanity, liberty and truth, do not say to your son, who is ready to join the colors, that he must stay at home. On the contrary, tell him to play the man, inspire him with the thought that you arc looking to liim to do you credit, that in the day oi trial "you, even as the Spartan mother, would have him stop a little closer if his swqrd is short. Do not, oh father and mother, imagine that the need is-not urgent. Major-Gencral Hughes has just announced that the Canadian forces are to be raised to men. They can only be main- tained at this figure ii the fathers and mothers of Canada sink all sel- fish desires and freciy consecrate their sons to their country. WATCHING .THE...
