"And wc make this appeal In the firm ronvicHon of the of Justice that actuates Congress in the Imposition of ail taxos. and helli'viii!; that our patriotism will not be ai'^-s-tinned or our motives misunderalooii." The above will interest many Am-Orleans residing in Southern Alberta, especially since the proposed penalty for the noii-paymont of the U.S. tax is loss of citizenship, compulsory payment of the tax and-a fine of $1,000 it fho non-payers over return to the United States. the Progress of the war The British and French, co-opcrat Ine, have commenced a new offensive j southeast of Amiena. presumably for the purpose of wiping out G'Drman positions between .\in:ens anii Mont Dirtier, which h.ivc been threatening the big allied centre of .-Vmiens since the j German spring of.'ensivc that ctiuo so,. near to cr.ptnring the city. The Americans, who crossed the Veslo In force yesterday, are holding their positions successfully. | In Siberia, allied forces have land-. od at Arcliangel and Vladivostok, and military and political activities are awakening. why not set bread prices too? When the government set the price of wheat and fiscd a standard of flour the natural expectation was that the price of bread would become a fixed factor in tho cost of living. It appears now, however, that this is not so. The recent government order requiring the use of substitutes naade from cereals on which the price is not fised, has i resulted locally in an increase in the I price of bread by 10 per cent. It would be impossible to say without careful investigation that the new prices are not in keeping with the costs entering into the manufacture, but It does seem absurd that the price of wheat and the standard of ingredients "in bread should be fixed without the price being fixed. Why not carry the process to Its logical conclusion? Everyone would be better satisfied if this were done. should advertise merits of our coal. Without "knocking" any other coal produced in Alberta, The Herald believes it would be good business for the city of Lethbridge and the mining | concerns in this district to issue a statement in pamphlet or other form setting forth the superiority o� Uie lump coal produced in this field in heating,and storing qualities. It is very evident from the opinions of Alberta coal expressed in the Manitoba Press that Manitobans have little conception of the qualities of the coal from the Lethbrldge field as compared with thb Pennsylvania coal they havo been- accustomed to use. They consider our coal as Alberta coal and Vlaco all Alberta coal on a par though tMrie,lfl-.a wrde difference in the Quality. The time is coming soon when Lethbridga coal will compete on the Manitoba market with coal from the northern part of the province, and anything that can be done to popularize the Lethbrldge coal and differentiate It from poorer coals mined in the north will reflect in the greater business which will come to the mines of this district another year. Thn opportunity is one we should not overlook. SHIPPING WHEAT VIA PANAMA CANAL. bit-of news drtfted over the wires the other day which, in i.oiiii)ari?on with the big news of (he weeli. received but little attention. It was to tho effect that tlio trial shipment of �wheat I'nini Vancouver to Liverpool via tlie Panama Canal had stood t!ie test .in excellent condition, and none of the consequences feared troui the ,.hcat of th.e ranni-ionc matpi^ialized. Just what this will nieau to tlie shipment of wheat from the prairie west It is hard as yet to decide. But there are indications that it will havo a far-reaching effect on the \ trade routes. For one thing, given equitable freight rates, there is an incentive to ship from Pacific Coast ports owing to the fact tliat they .ire year-round port^. and this would do away with the inevitable rush which attends the movouicMt of. tlie Wt'stcrn Canada wheat crop each year be.foro the clos^ of navigation on the Great Lakes. This would tend to sot up a more evon trend of business over the whole year in Western Canada and would also relieve our transportation facilities of the necessity of being prepared with rolling stock to' handle tho peak load which develops in the west every fall during the movement of wheat and coal in an easterly direction. So far as Lethbrldge is concerned, it is hard as yet to tell what the effect .would be. It is likely, however, that this city would bo the funnel through which much of the wheat groT^iTi in Southern Saskatchewan and all grown in Southern Alberta would find- its way into the mountains on the way to the coast. The Crow route has been established as the best freight grade to the coast, and Lethbrldge would naturally feel a good effect from the movement of prairie wheat through the mountains to the new outlets at Vancouver, Seatlie and, Portland. And- with the establishment of wheat exporting ports on the Pacific Coast it ^.ould not be long until there would be established there large jobbing concerns impoKting from the countries to which our wheat could be shipped. These in turn will look to Lethbrldge as a distributing centre on this side of the mountains. Thus we will grow closer in touch with the big importing jobbers than we now are and Lethbrldge as a distributing centre will grow in Importance.

The tact that Americans resident in. Canada are liable to the U.S. Income tax as well as to the Canadian income tax has caused a lot of discussion and some criticism in the past year. Now �we find a number of leading Americans residing m Toronto, taking an active stand against the double tax with the result that the following appeal la being forwarded to congress: "The American residing in the United States pays'one'tax;'the C4n-lidian residing in the Unitod States pays one tax. (the American); the Ganadiaii residing in Canada pays one .fax (the Canadian); but tho American residing In Canada payti two taxes, iianiely. tho American and the Canadian. ,, "We therefore appeal to tho Congress ot the United States and the Ways and Means Committee ot the 'Iflouse of Representatives to adjust, by action of Congress, these inequalities and to relieve us of the severe jtnd aw ))ut intolerable burden' ot Rouble income taxation, so that only Ihcome as Js directly earned in the United States by Atnerioan citizens 4DnilciIod in Panada ahall pay or -be fiibject to any liicoine "tax i now Ira-i^osed or that may be hereinafter imposed by tho Act of Congres^i, and all ilioame earned in the Dominion of Canada by citizens of the United f tu'eaidomlciled in the said Dominion (Spealal to the Herald) Retlaw, August 7.-The second annual fair of the Retlaw Agricultural Society was held on Saturday, ajid considering the adverse year, was quite as good as last year's fair in most respects.
