Your King and Country Need You Right Nowl THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR f Ofles?a is now statetl to be the objective of the Teutonic drive ugainst the Russians which has already carried them beyond Bukowitia into .Russian territory. This southern port on the Black Sea would be a valuable asset to the Germans with the Russian crops in their hands and the. Dardanelles open to them. Some writers look for the extension shortly of the Into Bessarabia, preparatory to n final drive on Odessa. But the indications now are that the backbone of the Russian army is stiffening once more and that effective opposition will, soon be offered to the Teutonic advance. This hope is further encouraged by the statement that United States troops will be sent to the Russian front to strengthen' the forces there. Operation? on the western front have been limited to trench raids the past few days,- the allies being successful in these activities. elimination of the factional spirit j which Is always so prcvnlent even in j the best regulated cities. It is. true that many Of the things Mr. Horbstunn suggests cannot be undertaken until after the war. The wnr has absorbed our greatest effort and attention, but the war is no excuse, ns Mr. Herhsman says, to put crepe on the door and allow ourselves to lapse into a comatose state so far ns our community lifo is concerned. Individually wo owe a duty to the community, to the development of community life. We owe it to the thousands ot soldiers who will some day return to us. to continue in the work of making our city a better place to live in. To quote Mr. Herbsman again, our motto should'be. that "LethbrUtee should be the bpst place to call home." ^PICKED UP IN** PASSING *OR T& BC/SY MAN since last January.

But Medicine Hat can boast a minister who takes more 'than a passing interest in the welfare .of the people of the district, and he .doesn't mind speaking out in meeting and telling about it. The other day Rev. W. J. Morrow ot that city, took a tvlp south to Manyberries, and to the; Me'dWlno Hat News lie told a little story' Svliich shows that he is an .observer. He was speaking of the crops south of Medicine Hat-and ,who, minister or not, should not be interested in crops just now when the Empire needs them so badly-and he told of the practical value of summer-fallow. The summerfallow crops, he said, were very good and showed the value of good farming. He told of one farmer- whom he had visited on his : trip, who in 1914, a very bad year, had ; grown 15 bushels to the acre on sura--.-fficTiaTfowT- In 1915 he had 55 bushels, 'in 1916 he had 52 fiushels, and (his  year his summerfallow will go 20 bushels. Thus in the four years sum-� merfallovf -hadproduced 142. bushels of wheat to ihe acre, or 35 Va bushel*4 : per annum. Ite'v!

Robert Rogers had n great deal to do with the action of the Winnipeg Liberal convention In Winnipeg? There are thousands of Liberals in the west who expected the convention to get together In a body behind conscription as the only remaining chance for Canada to do her part in the wnr. But the actlonof the government, and of the rank and file of the Conservative members in-the House of Commons in flatyiting Rogers in the faces of the, electors of Canada, acted as an irritant which was most unfortunate in view of the convention, then only a few days distant. The attitude of the electors of the Dominion towards Rogers, Is well explained in the following editorial which'appeare5 in a recent Issue of the Toronto Globe: If Sir Robert Borden thinks he has got rid of the Gait finding by simply accepting the 'McLeod-Tellier report as a vindication of Hon. Robert Rogers, \he Prime Minister does not cor-re.'tiy gauge the temper of the country and fails to realize the issues at stake. Were this a matter affecting Hon. Robert Rogers only there would be no disposition to pursue the question farther. It is not the discredited Minister only, but the honor and independence of the Canadian judiciary that are now Involved. That Hon. Robert Rogers should be in a position to flaunt the JHcLeod-Tellier report in the face of an outraged country is due to the action of Sir Robert Borden in providing a Commission for this purpose -a Commission that lacked the essentials of a judicial investigation, and which cannot be accepted as a final court of appeal. The findings of the j Gait and the McLeod-Tellier Commls-' sions must be reviewed by a higher J tribunal. For the-Jionor of the judici- j ary and the good name of Canada this I disgraceful episode in the history of Royal' Commissions must be sifted to IBe bottom. One or other of these Commissions must be a caricature of justice. Seventy Conservative members at Ottawa charge Mr. Justice Gait with prostituting his office to the basest partisan purposes. If the McLeod-Tellier report is endorsed'by the Premier, then Mr. Justice Gait should be impeached. But the country refuses to believe that Mr. Justice Gait could be guilty of the crime of allowing personal "venom and malice" to sway his judgment. Not Hon. Robert Rogers only, but the citizens of Canada who may have recourse to legal tribunals demand the impeachment of Mr. Justice Gait if the Prime Minister is. of-the.same opinion as his seventy followers in the House: that his findings were "unsupportable charges" that had no foundation in the evidence submitted' by witnesses. . No more discreditable performance could be conceived than the action of these seventy members of Parliament-lawmakers of Canada-supporting the Mc- ing a now hymn book.

Its object is education as, {well as entertainment. ; ; Lethbridge can benefit considerably from tha advice conveyed by Mr. \ Herbsman in bis address the other levoning. While many of us may re-"ent some of Mr. Herbsman'* remarks 'as coming from a man who has not 'had time to study our local problems, . nevertheless we muBt admit that he �placed his fingerB upon the weak Bpots In our community with startling ac-' curacy, and that we should ha foolish 'indeed not to accept his advice along general llnea in the spirit It was offered and benefit thereby. Mr. Herbsman undertook to tell us where Lethbridge was deficient and he could have done it with little more accuracy had he been a lifelong resident. ' Lethbridge he praised as" one of the most progressive cities ho had .ever visited, yet Lethbridge had its "dry bones" and we might almost say . ..sometimes with Ezeklel the prophet, "Behold they were very many, and lo, .they were very dry," Co-operation is .'the greatest need, co-operation be- es of the gravest character at Mr. Jus tlce Gait.. Does the Prime Minister, Jiimselt a member of the Canadian Bar, realize what this means? It may be argued tnat as a Commissioner Mr. Justice Gait was not acting in a judicial capacity, but this should not shield him from censure If the McLeod-Tellier finding Is accepted. Both reports cannot stand. Sir Robert Borden is discovering that he who sups with the devil must have a long spoon. The McLeod-Tellier Commission had uo fresh evidence on which to base its finding, save that given by Hon. Robert Rogers. The principal witnesses refused to acknowledge Kb jurisdiction. It was conceived in partisanship. Is Sir Robert Borden bo completely under the Influence of Hon. Robert Rogers as to accept without demur a condition of things which no self-re: specting statesman in Great Britain would dare to condone? Has Roger-ism gained such.a hold in the public life of Canada that even the judiciary is do tonger above suspicion? Is it for such things Canada is pouring out her blood and her treasure in France?
