There is little doubt that it Is Premier Bonleu's sincere desire to taboo politics tor the remainder of I bo war and bend the whole energies of the country to that end. l!y the c'iimination of tho strongly pnrtiznn element In the cabinet and the filling of their places with men of business calibre who are intent on winning tho war, there, is yet hope that Canada may evolve a government that will load the Dominion to do her whole duty In tho fight for freedom and democracy. Getting rid of Hogers is a Ions step in the right direction. Your Kino and Country Need You Right Now! 7b Comer T 4*' '�. Lana&a $ Food Saxony in Germany is to have meatless weeks. Considering everything, wo sbouldut have much kick about passing up the bacon a couple of mornings a week THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Over the entire western front fighting is raging in increasing intensity, in Belgium the British and French are busily engnged in consolidating their new positions and fighting off Herman counter-attacks of the fiercest kind. Progress in this region is being made slowly. In the Lens sector the Canadians have successfully withstood frightful German attacks, and are pressing their advantage. Now the French have opened a new offensive on a large scale at Verdun, and taking tho Germans off their guard, have made an advance on a wide front on both sides of the Mouse, in some places to a depth of over a ' mile, and have taken many unwounded : prisoners. j This drive, unexpected as it was. has evidently completely taken tho Germans unaware?, as indicated by the large number of unresisting prisoners taken. On the Somme the British have again been active, conducting an offensive whiGh has gained important ground for them, and resulted in the taking of prisoners. On the Isonzo front, the Italians have also opened a huge offensive, the results of the first day of which have been the capture of 7500 prisoners-and the taking of much ground from the Austriatis. By next February first we will be able to drink cut of tho tap with impunity. Considering that B. C. goes dry on October first, relief is not coming too soon. General Korniloff predicts a Russian offensive. The Italians are again sweeping towards Trieste. The French are pushing the Huns back at Verdun, and meatless weeks have been Introduced Into Germany. The war doesn't look so black after all. The Herald will be very much disappointed If an endeavor is not made to hold a stock show here next spring. Wo are not. doing half enough to encourage the stock industry in this part of the country. In the matter of marketing we are doing practically nothing at all when a little concerted effort might accomplish so much.

Hardieville is a prosperous little community that is bound to grow. It will grow all the more rapidly if some of the conveniences of life are made available. This can only be done by incorporation. The city and the board of trade should interest themselves'in the suggestion. We cannot do too much to build up the little mining centres which mean so much to us in the way of business opportunities. Is it true that recent investigations by Commissioner O'Connor disclose the Tact that there is 50 per cent, more beef in storage at the present j time that there was a year ago? It i this is true what is the government | doing to provide against the manipu-I lation of this surplus for the making I of more beef and pork millionaires? j Unless they do something drastic it is mighty poor policy to ask people to refrain from eating beef on certain days each week. People are not going to eat loss beet to allow more for the cold storage barons to gamble with. A word from Food Controller Hanna on this subject would be appreciated. ^PICKED UP IN * PASSING TR THE BUSY MA^ FARM LANDS Of the Hudson's Bay Company and Calgary and Edmonton Lani Co.

Toronto Saturday Night is making a great fight in behalf of the people of Canada against the bacon barons.

NO NEED FOR DOUBT AS TO LOCAL MEMBER'S ATTITUDE The local member of parliament has given the public assurance that he will resign the Liberal nomination for this constituency, and if he is renominated to contest the seat in the approaching election it will be as a supporter of conscription. There could be nothing fairer than that. He has never repudiated his stand on the conscription issue. He took that stand on tho floor of the house. Many Conservative newspapers throughout the country have, since the convention, published the fact that he is four-square on the issue. There is no reason for casting any doubt on the honesty ef his intentions, and those who seek to do so are plainly actuated by partizan motives. real from 31 to 32 cents. In New York 22 cents is quoted by the government reports as the wholesale price of bacon. The question arises, How is lt that the Canadian packers can afford to sell their bacon in London, after adding over four cents per pound to cover the additional expense of freights, handling, insurance, etc., at 27*6 centB? Are the poor fellows losing a fortune on it. or are Canadians being gouged? With the additional evidence forthcoming from New York City we should say that gouged is the word. Or perhaps margined would be better. Canadian hams in London are selling wholesale at 27% cents per pound; in Toronto at from 29V2 to 31 in Montreal at 31 and 32. In New York 22 2-5 cents is the average export price. A standard brand ot flour, strong bakers', sells at ?10.45 per barrel wholesale in London, $12.40 in Toronto, and $12.50 in Montreal, where It is in all likelihood ground. In New York the average price during May was $9.52. What applies to the additional expense of landing bacon on the London market applies also to flour and hams. So we must again inquire whether the exporters are losing a huge sum of money on their products or whether we are merely being margined. cine Hat duties. and has assumed his new ROGERS' RESIGNATION REMOVES STUMBLING BLOCK According to semi-offlcial announcement, Hon. Robert llogers, has resigned his portfolio as minister of public works in the Dominion cabinet. Thus (s the greatest stumbling block in the way of a union government removed. The news that the shifty winner of elections bus been eliminated from control of affairs of tho Dominion will be heard with acclaim by the people of Canada, and Conservatives as well ms Liberals will see in ills step the urging of Sir Robert Borden, who seems at last to have come to a lull realization of the need for a non-partizan wln-the-war government that will gain tho confidence ot people of all shades of public opinion. Rogers' reason, that the conscription bill is not being enforced soon enough can be taken with a grain ot salt. The trutb is that he finds himself discredited in the public eye In spite of the recent coat of whitewash so crudely pulled by the commission for that purpose. ^ ^ ^ ..... CHINA TO PLAY WAR GAME ALONE, DOCUMENTS SHOW The post office department has advised that, as the importation of saccharine into the United Kingdom by post is not permitted, packages containing saccharine received in mails from Canada are being seized by tho British customs authorities. The Vossische Zeitung of Berlin is quoted in an Exchange Telegraph dispatch from Amsterdam to the effect that meatless weeks have been decided on in Saxony, and are now to be extended to the whole German empire. According to this report there will be two meatless weeks a month, beginning with September. An American of German birth who was permitted to leave Germany recently, says that the military author!- j ties there are commencing to take j American citizens long resident in i Germany for military service on the | grounds that they have forfeited their I American citizenship and are now denationalized.
