Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 21, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta (VOLUME X. LKTHBIIIDGK. ALBERTA, TUESDAY, AUGUST 21, 1017 NUMBER 213 i CANADIANS, FRENCH AND HAL MAKE HUGE ADVANCES ROGERS COULD NOT BEAR THOUGHT OF A COALITION GOVERNMENT RESIGNATION TKAN^i: AND EX "auy Mau Bays^ and Milling company of Breeso, 111. i tCONTINUEB ON I'^GB SIXJ The Toronto Mail and Empire says: "Mr. Rogers is and always has been a strong party man, and it would not be surprising if ha were ol tho opinion that tlio party system is the only practical style ot government for a democracy like ours and if he bolieved that governments must stand or fall by it in all crises." Montreal Gazette: "We presume that Mr. Rogers takes his usefulness as a servant of the public in high places to have been weakened and so he has retired from the scene. It is well that public men should be, as Caesar's wife, above reproach. Equally lruo is it that once the breath of suspicion falls upon them, they must disappear. Whether the resignation of Mr. Rogers is a step toward reconstruction of the cabinet or not we are unaware. But tills much is certain, Mr. Rogers' retirement gives the premier a freer hand."

Boland, former postmaster.-generul of Canada, who.was captured in Belgium when the Germans invaded that country, still believes there is an organized campaign in Canada to rescue him, according to a letter received here last night. Tho letter was from a French-Canadian officer, who met an Englishman named Charles E. Mollor, who had been released from the prison- camp whore Dr. Boland waj� confined. He said the former Canadian poBtmaster-genoral had nearly lost IiIb reason when his wife died some time after their imprisonment and that much longer confinement would place Dr. Beland's life in Jeopardy. Dr. Beland was living in Antwerp when the war broke out. His wife, whom he had married n short, time previously, was a Belgian C. F. JAMIESON of Lethbridge, who was admitted as a full-fledged member of the Alberta bar before Mr. Justice Ives. ItlflttK UF IHE LOCAL BAR C. Fred .Tamieson, of Lethbridge, was admitted as a barrister and solicitor of the supreme court of Alberta at Calgary yesterday. In terms very complimentary to the new lawyer, Mr. .Tamieson was presented to the court by Mr. James Muir, K.C., president of the law society, and upon his being admitted the conviction o� the court was expressed by Mr. Justice' Ives that Mr." Jamieson would prove a capable and honorable prac-tlcioner. Early last year Mr. Jamieson was given a special standing as a student-at-)aw by the Alberta Law society on account of his previous legal training and wide business experience. At the ago of twenty ho had graduated from Dalhousie law school, Nova Scotia, and for a considerable period thereafter ho was connected with the Standard Oil company. Ho then do-voted somo timo to journalism in Nova Scotia, all the while taking an active part in politics as a Conservative. In lfiOC, when still in his early twenties, he was nominated to contest Cumberland county, N.S., against the late Hon. W. T. Pipes, at one time premier of Nova Scotia and at that time attorney-general for that province. In the following year Mr. .Tamieson was sent to the neighboring province of Prince Edward Island to report on tho working of prohibition legislation in force there, a similar measure having beon introduced that year into the Nova Scotia legislature.

L ., OVER NEW FOOD Pork Not Being Served - All Commenced Observation of New Regulations Today WE OBSERVE MEATLESS DAYS DO YOU? HELP TO WIN THE WAR. This is the placard that is now prominently displayed in many eating places in the city. For today is the first meatless day under the new food regulations to he observed in the local hotels and restaurants, although some hotels and other eating places commenced the observation before the regulations came into effect. Today it has been impossible to secure bacon or any class of hog meat, or beef. There is also a substitute served for white bread. In many eating places there is a doubt as to whether bacon really prohibits pork as well, although the proprietors are interpreting the regulations that way, and arc refusing to sorve pork in any shape. There is a good deal of confusion too, as to how the regulations are to be interpreted with respect to tho serving of bacon on other days. The regulations state that bacon can be served at only one meal, but does not : designate which meal. Even necessary to fix certain hours, for many restaurants serve meals throughout the day and night.
