Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 9, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT WHYBOROFNISSTAYING IN ENGLAND Ottawa. Avip. S.-In view of oonlln-tied criticism of Sir Uobcrt Borilcn because of liis nlisenco in England, tlio director of public information today Issued a statement in explanation of the prowinc; Iniportanco of the dcll-lioratlons of the Imperial war cablnei. The statement which ist based upon intorraatiion brongli*. to Canada by min-later.i who have returned is as follows: "A very groat step in the constitutional development of the Empire wa.^; taken last year by the prime minister of the United Kingdom, wlien he :?'ini-nioned the prime ministers of the overseas dominions to the Inipeiia! war cabinet. "In 1917. Australia wa.s iinaWo to yend ii representative to the meetings hold, but this year the'deputation fiom overseas was complete and for the lirst time tlie self-government nations of the British commonwealth, in the persons of their responsible ministers, have met in a common council, in which the most important matters of state were under consideration. "The significance ot tlie Imperial war cabinet is perhaps not generally realized. Its creation marks a very definite enlargement of autoutuuy for the Dominions. As Sir Uoberl said recently in a speech in London: " -The dominions li.ive aiw.nys lacked the full status ot nations. l)ecau'50 the home government exercise 1 a sort ot trusteeship under which it undertook to deal witU foreign relations on their behalf and some times without consulting them very much.' . "That day has gone by. For the *;rst time in British history the dominions have been given a direct voice in those afliairs of state which concern the Empire as a whole. Although un- THERE'S REFRESHMENT IN EVERY GLASS ol soda served here. There's a lot of enjoyment too. Fruit Flavors are Fruit Juices not chemical compounds, and the chocolate and other flavors are the best E.nd purest mode. Our Peach Soda is a Peach Try it and you'll say that at last you iutow absolutely wh'St the famous triak ot the gods was like. Tlie Bon Ton I consulted, the dominions entered this war of wars with a willingness which I admitted of no .debate. But they have j now earned a voice in tlie conduct of 1 the war and the peace negotiations I which mii.ot follow. Siicli a voice has now been grtinted them, not as a fav- � or but as ii right. "Sir Robert has aptly callpd the Imperial war cabinet 'a cabinet of governmeirts' every prime minister who sat around that liourd. so he points out. "was responsible to his own parliament tmd his own people and the (onclusions of the war cabin>3t could only bo carried out by the i^arllaato'its of the diflerent parts of (he Kaipire. Each dominion, each nation, retained its perfect autonomy. "The Imperial war cabinet must not be confused with the Imperial war conference. The latter Is the successor ot the Imperial conferences which were held before the war and deals in ! an advisory capacity with general � questions of concern to the commonwealth, chiefly relating at present to problems of reconstruction. 'Neither must the Imperial war cah-inet be contused with thu (British) war cabinet, which is primarily concerned with (he affairs of the -Jtiiced Kingdom. The latter was Introduced with the last Via'iKc of government in Great Britain and its creation was intended to make a distinction between the body which was responsible for the direction of the war and those ministers who have charge ot the great administrative departments of state and should be left free to .lirect their activities. The general direction of the policy of the British goverii-meut during the war rests with the war cabinet, whose members number six, with one exception, nre relieved of routine administrative work, and whose time is therefore entirely free for the conslueration of policies and the work ot co-ordination. During the last year the British war cabinet held more than 300 meetings. � The Imperial war cabinet, which is distinct from the British war cabinet, during its sessions during the war. is composed ot the premier of the United Kingdom. Kt. Hon. David l.loyd George, Lord Curzon, president of the council; Rt. Hon. A. Bonar Law. chan-I cellor of the exchequer, and two ministers without portfolio, Rt. Hon. Austen t'hnmberlain and Rt. Hon. G. X.

Xot the least of these is the opportunity which it affords the United Kingdom and the great dominions to co-operate in the prosecution of a great common task. The combination ot Unity and the preservation of auto-mony is so striking that, as the prime min'ister has said: " 'It is the germ of victory which I we cannot overlook.' j "The Imperial war cabinet has not ] yet conoludetl its session and the j prime minister of Canada is still in attendance."

Newspaper Man, Went to Rumania For Germany Phones 1453 aiid 1365 313 Fifth Street South Lethbridge New York, "Aug. 3.-That William Bayard Hale, head of the German information service in this country in 1916." made a trip from Germany into Rumania the following year on a passport describing him as "on official business ot the German torsisn ofllce," was the declaration ot a witness today in the state attorney general's inquiry into German , propaganda activities. The witness, a new.s-paper correspondent, whose name was withheld by Deputy Attorney Becker, went to Rumania with Hale, then a representative of the New York American In Berlin. On the journey' the witness asserted, he and Hale, whose passports were issv.ed simultaneously over the signature ot Foreign Secretary Zimmerman were not required to submit their belongings to German examination, even in the most restricted zones. Other cor-re.spondents, he said, were subjected to ihe most rigid inspection. GERilTCliCS .\msterdam, Aug. 9.-RevleW.s by German critics on the miltary .situation in the west disclosed divergencleH in opinon as to who bore the brunt ot the attack on the allied side. The Cologne Gttzotte'a writer declares the white Frenchmen did i\ll the fighting, while the Frankfort Gazette states that, on the contrary, the white Frenchmen were spared for political reasons, and on the Americans fell the weight ot the fighting. Few of the writers venture to predict what will happen /next. Tho consensus ot opinon seemed to be that it was doubtful whether Marshal Foch would feel .strong enough to risk a frontal attack on the German lino. "If ho does," says the Military expert ot the Nachrlchten of Hamburg, "we must reckon with an extension of the lighting area to the north of the Aisuo, In the Compiegne region, because it Is there alone that the pos-slbllty ot an encircling attack otters Itself." MASKED MEN HELD UP RAILWAY GANG Parry Sond, Ont., Aug. 9.- Two masked men appeared yesterday at Porter, about eighty miles north of here on the C.N.R, and ordered the foreman of an extra gang of flfty men grading the line, to Hue up bis men. One man with rlfla kept guard while the other with a bag tied to his waist commanded the men to drop their valuables In it. AVhen they had secured all the valuables, which were valued at ?3,B00, they commandeered two men and a hand car and ordered them to pump them south toward Baygwut-er. At niUeage 77, they ordered the men to walk back and took to the bush. A number - ot vouxtitbles are now ga the ground.

Qually has helped many farmers In innumerable ways, and the whole district l^as been benelltted greatly by his whole-hearted interest in his work. This Board of Trado had been doing all that appeared to ba-posaiblo in these directions, but It ha(U been evident for sonie time that tlioro wero larger spheres ot useful inlluence that it was not within our power to cover. The establishment of the Alberta Labor Bureau at Lethbridge in charge of Mr. J. A. Weir a year or two ago, anil now tho appointment ot an Agricul- tural Representative here have given practical demonstration to our farmers of your own interest and that ot your department in their welfare, and It is only right, f think, that this should be acknowlodgotl. Yours truly, C). U. MARNOCU, President, Ottawa. Aug, n.-General Sir Sam Hughes who Is in Ottawa, made an explanation regarding the allegations | on the uselessness of the British cellulose company in England, published in Montreal papers. "I know nothing whatever about the business end of this organization," he says. "I do know that at the beginning ot the war Germans outclassed u.s in Zeppelins and aeroplanes. When In England at that time 1 sought to induce a number of persons to get behind the manufacture of war materials, devoting considerable energy and some capital to that end. One live wire. I found in the person ot Grant Morden. At considerable risk he visited various parts of the continent., I also remember putting inquiries' on foot concerning a French Invention for covering airplanes. I also spent a great deal of time myself and some capital. 1 know nothing whatever about the business since that time other than the fact that l.| received a cable some time ago since wanting me to sell out a certain number ot shares in my name to some newly organized company. 1 have never taken any action in the premises and only regret that in the company which seems to have been organized I do not own a very large number of shares. 1 succeeded in assisting the British air forces to outclass their enemies. And if now success has crowned the efforts of the company -ot that, however, I know nothing- I am glad. If the company is a success, I wish 1 could afford to take a large block ot stock. I understand the company is composed largely of, and managed entirely by Canadians. ADDITIONS TO VARSITY STAFF Rdmonton, Aug. S.-At a recent meeting of the board ot governors of the University o� Alberta two additional appointments to the staff for the coming year were made. Mr. Morden H. Long, an honours graduate of McMaster University and subsequently a Rhodes scholar and honours graduate in the Department of History ot Oxford University, was appointed Lecturer in History. Jlr. Long'has been for some years in charge of the work in history at Victoria High School in Edmonton and his promotion to the staff ot the Provincial University will bo a pleasing recognition to his many friends ot his conscientious and successful work in his chosen field. The number of women students at the University Is at present rapidly Increasing. Recognizing their respon-sibUity not only in the domain of Intellectual equipment but a'so In what pertains to tho physfSal well-being ot their students, the University authorities have felt that the time has come to give increased attention to tho problem ot i)hy8ical educallon. With this end in view, the hoard has appointed Bs physical directress for women .students Miss Christine Fabb, a graduate of tho Chelsea Training College, London. England, and formerly of the staff of tho Royal Victoria College, :\lontreal. MUb Fabb comes to the University with high credentials and wide experience both In Britain and Canada.
