Fall Opening DAY SCHOOL-Tuesday, September 4th. 1 NIGHT SCHOOL-Thursday, September ALL COMMERCIAL subjects TAUGHT. Thanks! The past year has been a prosperous one with us and we wish to thank the people of Lethbridge and vicinity who have accorded ub their patronage. We are pleased to report that we have found ready employment for all of our graduates, In fact many left to accept positions before graduating. We anticipate a good attendance during the coming term. Are you planning to be one of our successful students? "Jifricient School wr,te 0r call f0r information. GARBUTT BUSINESS COLLEGE tsfie Emblem Phone 1318. 411 Sth St. 8. Lethbrldoe. Residence Phone 1831. London, Aug. 16.-.In addressing the commons today, Premier Lloyd George said: "I do not think tho time ; has come for a useful review ot the military situation. The main facts are well known to the house and the country. I had anticipated this year a groat converging movement against our foes. Russia was equipped for that part as she never before had been equipped. I venture to say that the nipperB are out of repair ,for the moment, and therefore we have not got that same converging pressure we had anticipated. "But things aro mending. The situation in Russia is a very difficult one, and I should be sorry to say anything which would make it more difficult, because it is quite obvious you cannot even state facts without embarrassing those who are trying to restore the situation in that country. But while they are doing it bravely with great courage, and I think with great thoroughness, the brunt of tho fighting must falb on other countries. And considering all tho difficulties with which we are confronted our armies have won very conspicuous successes. "it is difficult even to dwell upon the difference which tho temporary collapse of the Russians military power has made in the task with which our soldiers are confronted." Lloyd George said that British divisions which have been fighting and I temporarily are exhausted pass be-' hind the lines until they are reformed, but that the German divisions in tho same condition go to Russia ami hold a front which, does not impose severe military obligations, while fresh divisions from Russia come to the western front. That Increased tho number of Germans on tho western front. Under those conditions, what had been achieved was ono of tho most, brilliant episodes in tho history of the Hritisli army. ' "The best. Germans can do now," Lloyd George continued, "when what was practically her most powerful opponoiit at the beginning of the war is paralyzed by internal difficulties, is to hold her own against the attacks of tho British and tho French. And she is not quite doing it. On the contrary, in this year she has .boon beaten in several groat battles, with severe Iobsos and with hundreds of her guns captured, which is .not a bad test of winning or losing a-battle. Germany's Future Task Russia recovered and America really in, with those fino troops of which we saw a spocimon yesterday, and which were a symbol of America corning into this world struggle with a virile swing-those are the tilings the Germans and their allies will have to think about." Premier Lloyd George then rea,d a message from Field Marshal Ifatg about tho fighting in Flanders, and concluded: "This is the supreme hour fori pa-tlonco, for courage, for endurance,, for hopo, for unity. Let us go through thlH hour with a temper that will on able us to destroy a great military despotism. Lot us go through this hour with tho old temper of .our-race so that next year we shall begin, and tho world begin, to reap the fruits of our valor." Former Promior Asqulth said 'that Groat Britain can survey with satis faction, if not with complacency- for who could survey, complacently tho scone now presented to tho clvll-izod world-the results ot her own effort. What hus happened in Rus sia has frustrated one of the great est military pvrp.oneB of the allies, and any criticism passed on this | year's operations must bear In mind Mr. and Mrs. \V. S.

J THE CREED OF MICHAELIS Copenhagen, Aug. 18.-Interesting light on tho political creed of Dr. George Michaelis, Gorman chancellor, Is given in an article, which he wrote in December, 1914, for an obscure religious woekly which has now been resurrectod. It condemns parliamentarism on the ono hand and on the other the selfish policy of tho Conservative party. "What democrat in favor of tho miserable parliamentarism in England, and French ropnlican legislation In France!can domand parliamentary rulo 111 Germany," said Dr. Michaelis. "Who will dare to touch tho Emperor's military authority?" he challenged thoso who wish to place the noose' of ministerial responsibility to the law about the neck'of the chancellor.
