TELEPHONES; Business Office Editorial Office W. A. Buchanan John TorralB" Slanaslog Director Business ManM ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR Important gains hy the British Troops on Galllpoll, on the one hand, and the fiua.l possession of Kovn'u in Poland by the Germans, on the other hand, were the outstanding features of yesterday's war news. Millie inc. situation in Gallipoli is considerably improved by the recent gains made .by the Allies, the Russian situation Is rendered more critical by the cap- ture of the fortress Kovne, where ihe Germans are said to have taken 400 cannon. The Germans are con- tinuing their pressure on the long line of fortified towns that form the outer defences of the Pstrcgrad pro- vinces. In the recent fighting in the Dar- danelles, the Turks arc said to have lost 27.000 men on land and 600 men in the sinking of a transport. In an air raid on the outskirts, of London and adjacent counties on Tuesday night, 10 persons were killed and some property damage done. The situation in the Balkans so far as Greece is concerned, already looks bright from the standpoint of the Allies. OUR POINT OF VIEW YOUR KING AND COUNTRY NEED YOU .RIGHT NOW.

C.P.R.'S FAITH IN EAST COUNTRY The Canadian Pacific Railway is a ,hig covering the whole of Western Canada, and naturally it can- not.please all the people all the time, nevertheless, we must give, it credit for its desire to serve tie country's needs. This year when every railroad is keeping expenditures 'down io the limit and hot entering upon any new the G. P. B. has shown its faith in 'the country south-east of Leth- iridge hy announcing that it will build thirty or more miles ot line from Foremost eastward. Since the C. P. R. has such abounding faith' in this country ivhy should any of. us feel concern about our future not be- ing bright and marked', by develop- ment. We 0. P. R. very rarely makes a mistake in its development policy, and its decision to go on and build more of the Lethbridge-Weyburn line proves that It believes in that country and its future. Sir Clement Kinloch-Cooke, M.P., in a treatise on "War Problems and How to Meet Them." declares that, "a considerable number of men en- eaged in'tbe war have already ex- pressed their intention, when free, of transferring themselves and their families either to Canada or to Aus- tralia.-" He goes on to say that the example of these will he widely fol- lowed, and that in :his opinion, and in the general opinion of well-inform- ed authorities, there will be a remark- iabie movement to the Overseas Do- l minions at-the close Of the war.

Yulcoi, M.P. tor ts !nr thp mnnev COMMISSION FORM OF GOVERNMENT Mr. Justice Simmons offered some severe, strictures, on Calgary's com- mission form of government, and ex- pressed the opinion that that city should adhere to the good old British, system. The Calgary system is dif- ferent from the commission form of government which Lethforidge pos- sesses, but the success of any system' of government depends largely upon the men chosen people to di- rect affairs. In Lethbridge we think public opinion is very largely favor able to a continuance of the commis- sion form" of government. There is certainly not any strong section of public opinion favorable to a return to the old .system. Of course, 'there are faults in our commission svstem. There is .not'the. to- municipal affairs that formerly chari acterized'the .proceedings of the muni: eipal council; "and there "also seems to be a tendency to be unanimous upf oh all matters coming before the com, mission.. Up to the present there has been no evidence of an opposition-or A tendency to criticise on the part of any of the commissioners. Many neo- _ pie reel tnac a htUe more publicity to the "conduct of city affairs and evi- dence now and again of a difference of opinion amongst the'commission- ers would fce beneficial. However, Ijettobridge is fairly well satisfied with the.commission form of govern- ment.

GASOLINE "JAG" BRINGS DELIRIUM Washington, Dan- iels is norried. There has been dis- covered a new kind of "jag" in the and it is unlikely just now that it-will be" done away with immediate- ly. And, furthermore. It is free. The "jag" cumes from gasoline, and -until soine other kind of fluid for use, particularly in sub- marines, "prohibition" is unlikely. The sensations of a gasoline jag are described as follows: Persons working in close proximity to a leak are conscious at first of a slight and not unpleasant odor of gas- oline Presently feeling of flishti- ness is noticeable and a dull head- ache follows, together with a deter- mination to get out into open air. If "the resolution to get out into open air is followed the weakness and headachs gradually but: If not the person or persons, are likely to he. overcome with delirium, and in some cases forcible restraint is ne- elesp which lasts some hoars.

He thinks the commission form of government ..v suggests that one ot the defects of the present system is that the commissioners arc not members of the council. He would have the rate- payers elect two men from the .il'.isnneii at each el s commissioners. The mayor should be chairman of the executive board, lie now is. The mayor should ho chairman of finance. He now is. One commissioner might be chairman or commissioner of pub- lic works, and in addition have tho utilities under his control the oth- er commissioner to lie chairman of police, fire and health departments.

Tho equip- ment, ho said, could be bought for ?S.60, niaking a total'of as as- ainst ?55.00 actually paid. Mr. Russell contended, on the oth- er hand, thiit .'the equipment cost more .than JS.SO. and that, in addi- tion, .the cycles had to uo enamelled to the required war grey. The en- amel, ho declared, cost money, and the total extra equipment, was JS.M. Not Enamel at All Today Clayton Burt, now assistant manager of the Russell Co., declar- ed that the war paint of the cycles -was not enamel at all, but p'laiu paint. The paint, it was slated by Major Thomas, could be rubbed off with gasoline and a 'rough remover. The initial coating put on bicycles was "baked enamel." The coating used for .war coloring on tho cycles in question was or common paint. Burt admitted that structurally the "military" bicycle supplied was identical with the ordinary bicycle sold by the company. A military bicycle was brought to the i room, .and Major Thomas was asked about it. He said it -was an or- the relations existing 'between the Husacl Co. .and..the Kol.ly-Sprlustiold Co.
