Voup Kina and Country naad you ilBht nsw'. the PROCnESS or the war Yesterday's despatches recorded still further progress by allied troops on all fronts. The Italians are gradually driving the Austrian forces from the Carso plateau, and are dally taking numbers of prisoners. The Russian advance along the Oa-lldan front continues unchecked. In the region of the middle Strlpa the Austrlans have been pursued to the northern bank of the Dnelster. Substantial gains on British and French fronts to the extent of nearly a mile along wide fronw. are recorded. Fighting with Uie Turks at Suez and In Alesopotamia continues. STUDY THE FREE HOSPITAL QUESTION . We are pleased to sec that the Hospital Board decided that the lime was not ripe to consider the free hospital question, not because they dc not believe in the principle involved but because there are so many details of management and financing to work out. The principle stands out clear cut aud free public hospitals are coming, probably sooner than many of us imagine. But, as we pointed out last Thursday, there are so many Important details to be worked out, all of T?hich bear on the practicability of the scheme, that it is better to take plenty ol lime to study the problem from every angle. The United Farmers of Alberta have the whole question of free hospitals in band and it Leth-bridge keejpe pace with uiem we will be doing very well. But it is a quea tion of which we should not lose sight for a moment. F)ICKEDUP1N ASSINGCZZI rdn THt BTTSY MAN r. B. should send out s. o. s. call "I think it is one of the most distressing signs of the times that women will buy these long white kid! shoes when they might get plain ones tor half the money and give the rest to the Red Cross." Thus spake R. B. Bennett, il.P., to � Calgary audience on Sunday even-liig. "When R. B., joUy old bachelor that he is, starts talking about the sort of shoes the ladles should wear we Imagine he is getting beyond his depth. His idea on the above occasion was all right- he was endeavoring to tell the', audience that everyono should give to the Red Cross and the Patriotic Fund until it hurts-but his executloiv was awful. Couldn't he find Bomething he knows more about than laides' shoes to talk of? If R. B. ever goes up against the ladies' vote in Calgary he will find out the terrible ^bull" he has made. For the majority of ladles would rather go without food than be out of the fashion, and white ehoes are the fashion this season. Probably the guilty ladles are living on two meals a day in order to give to the patriotic funds. R. B. should stick to bis knitting and not go wandering Into the realms of milady'a choice. He la distinctly out of his element, and cuts a ludicrous figuro for one who sways the House of Com-aions under his magic oratory. Mud or water? The verdict will bo known today. The Russian bear seems to be getting up speed as he goes, swallowinf a few Austrian towns and a thousand or two Hun prisoners as daily breakfast food. But just wait till he strikes his stride. Now is the time to prepare for the big Patriotic Fund campaign this fall. Lethbrldge is to raise $30,000, or three dollars a head of population. It is a l)lg task, but the city raised $37000 last year, so there's no doubt about ths outcome. A baby With two teeth was born In a Calgary hospital.

Every Liberal should work whole-heartedly for tho carrying into effect of this measure. The presence ot tho female voter at the polls election day will have a tendency lo help clear tho political atmosphere. The doctor asked R. F. Green, Dominion representative for the Kootenays It he had carried out his promises to the lumber industry, when he was allowed to carry the district unopposed in a bye-election, when Mr. Goodeve resigned to accept a "higher up" position. The doctor failed to see the sympathy between the Bovernment at Ottawa and that of Bx"'sh Columbia. Was there not an opportunity for Mr. Green to deal with the question of ship building at Otta:wa on behalf ot British Columbia? Surely this was a national question and could be treated as such. Premier Bowser at I^'ort Steele came out boldly and said lie accepted the full responslbmiy of the McBrlde government and the actions of his own ministers for everything they had undertaken, but he said there must be no post-mortems. He also admitted that his government was ex-travasant. that they had pone on spending the public monies recklessly but that tho government was colored by the actions ot the people. The people were extravagant and the government followed suit. Surely this was a lame excuse on the part of the government. Tho government is to lead the people, not to "lollow suit." Mr. Caven has been your representative for seven years, and although parading as a labor man, has not brought down, or made an attempt to bring down, one Hingle measure to assist labor. The Liberal candidate asked the audience to accord the premier a hearing, as he had much to answer tor. He urR^d that law and order should prevail and no "rough house" methods re.sorled to. As time was up tho doctor took his seat, the aP plause being exceptionally hearty, round after round rending tho air. r. f. Green IVl. P.

His speech trom that on was IV duplicate ot the Fort Steele ad-dross. "Bob" was not meeting with the reception ho thought was duo him as Dominion roijresentative and he switched from boosting tho government to the patriotic He told how his hoy was in I^JuKland and fighting the Hun. He did not toll his audience that as their reprcscutativo ho had done nothing for East Kootenay, Ho did not make known to the audience that a number of delegations waited on Utm at varlovis times In un effort to receive some recognition trom Ottawa and were given little encouragement or .Mr. Green was Indisposed. There I are n number of things .Mr. Green must explain in East Kootenay. He promised protection to the lumber interests. Tho mlUmen ot East Kootenay aro facing unfair competition in the prairies by tho dumping ot American lumber. Ho closed his remnrUs by saying one community could not prosper without injuring tho other. This is only too true. West Kootenay has prosporod at tho expense of East Kootenay in tho matter of Dominion government appropriations, Every businoss man in ICasl Kootenay realizes this.
