It is quite likely that some stronger lender may arise to whom Premier Borden would give preference. Sir Adam lieck Is roontioned. There are. other men of equal calibre who would make better leaders than Borden. But if union comes, as now seems likely, the (ask of leadership, though it will be a hard one, will probably not be so difficult as many people imagine, for the reason that less attention will be paid to politics and more will go to the great aim. winning the war. Your King and Country Need You Right Nowl THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The announcement that in three days the allies on the western front have taken 25,000 prisoners, gives some idea of the success that has been attained by the allied forces in their recent offensives. Of this number nearly 10,000 have been taken by the French on the Verdun front, where several square miles of territory have been reclaimed. The Canadians have also been credited with no inconsiderable number in their attacks about Lons. The Italians on the Isonzo front have also taken a total of 30,000 prisoners. Much mystery surrounds present conditions in Russia. There has been no authentic news from this quarter for.some time, and there is apprehension that conditions are far from encouraging. POPE'S PEACE OFFER ILL-TIMED. The peace note of rope Benedict is finding very little response on the part of the entente allies. It will meet with a similar reception to that of President Wilson, issued before he learned the extent uf German perfidy. But the Germanic allies seem to favor the Pope's propaganda even though they may disagree with the basis of peace suggested by him. It is quite easy to understand their point of view. Even though they are losing now. peace at this time would leave Ccvmany in a position where she would always boast to the world that she was the winner. In point of territory gained she is the winner at the present time. Miehaelis' "powerful peace" would suit Germany very well. But peace is not for tiie present, much as Germany would like it. President Gompers of American Federation of Labor says there i3 only one basis for permanent peace: This is either the abdication of kaiserdom to the democracies of the i 0 of whom are taking the first class teachers' work and TO the second class. Reeve Wm. Hunter has resigned as reeve of Kincardine, Ont., having been appointed provisionally superintendent of the Good Roads system of the county of Bruce. A cable has been received at Victoria by E. E. Wootton informing him that his son, Lieut. II. X. Wootton, has been awarded Military Cross for his meritorious services on the field. crushed by the democracies of the world. Until this is accomplished there can not and ought not to be a peace. While another American writer, SHOULD MAKE LAW AGAINST FLOODING ROADS. Complaints continue to be received by The Herald regarding the flooding j of roads in the Coaldale district by irrigation waters. Those who complain appear to us to have every right to enter the most strenuous objection. An instance is cited of one farmer about four miles south of Coal-dale. The irrigation waters from his ranch have been flooding the road for several days. Men are at work in the field, putting the water on the land and paying not the slightest attention to the road which has become almost impassable. About a mile east of the provincial jail the road has been ruined by the overflow. In these days when the automobile Is depended upon so largely by the people of the country as a means of transportation it seems hardly fair that the farmers should have so little consideration of the public. A little extra work in banking tne low places near the road would avert all the trouble. No road is better than the vrorst spot in it. It is for everybody to guard against these bad spots. It appears as if there is no means of taking legal action against the careless parties. But it would be a wise step on the part of the automobile clubs to take up with the provincial government the matter of placing a law on the. statutes which would be an incentive to the farmers who are guilty to be more careful. We cannot afford to have our highways spoiled by. carelessness on the part of anyone. summing up the danger of a premature peace, says: If the Germans can do in Belgium what they have done and escape the consequences, then militarism is fastened upon the world, then we shall all have to take arms against the morrow when the Germans will come again, and without having conquered us. yet the German will have, in fact, condemned the world to adopt the German system and live under German conditions. One thing that would help the meatless day campaign would be cheaper fish. The golden hoof has proved this year that it is rightly named. Considering the price received by Southern Alberta wool growers for their product it looks as if they had discovered the golden fleece. Three sisters of Sydney, N. S., are ; leaders in three classes this year in the government reports of Academy | examinations. They are Misses Mar-i garet, Helen and Miriam Bannennan. ! Senator Weeks of Massachusetts | will introduce a measure in the U. S. J senate to fix an annual tax of $1 on j every dog In the country, it was an-| nounced at a meeting of the National j Sheep and Wool bureau. i Commissioner C. L. Armstrong, of ] Victoria, has appealed to the advisory j council for industrial and scientific : research for the establishment of a research laboratory in British Columbia. The Very Rev. E. M. Bunoz. D.M.I., a former principal of St. Louis college and well known in Roman Catholic circles all over the province, has been apointed vicar-apostolic of the Yukon, a newly created ecclesiastical preferment. Olax Langvad, an employee of the G.T.P., at Edgeley. Sask., was drowned while in bathing. The clay was excessively hot and Langvad vent into the dam for a swim. He evidently was seized with cramps while in the water alone. If Premier Sifton goes to Ottawa, it will be no mistake to make Hon. Chas. Stewart premier. No man in Alberta has a better or more sympathetic understanding of the needs of the people of the province than has the minister of public works. OUTLOOK FOR UNION GROWS BRIGHTER. The outlook for a union government before the general election is much brighter, according to the latest reports from Ottawa. The removal of Rogers and the opportunity it gave for Sir Robert Borden to emphasize the fact that he stands for union wln-tho-war government has cleared the Kir considerably and progress is being Made. The mention of Premier Sifton as ne of the members of the reorganized government has increased the confidence of the west In the plan. Premier Sifton is acknowledged by men of all shades of politics as ono of the outstanding men of Canada today. He has the ability and the strength ot character to back his convictions and that is what is needed In these times of national crisis. A. L. Sifton would be a tower of strength to any union cabinet. He is the outstanding political leader in western Canada and it is known that he stands ready to sink his party feelings for the purpose of doing: his bit for Canada. There is quite a deal of talk those flays that Premier Borden is not strong enough to lead a union government. That la hinted by newspapers of his own party. However that may be, Premier Borden can claim the distinction ot having publicly sunk his feelings in an honest endeavor to create a, government that will have the confidence of all the win-the-war element of the Dominion, and he has even suggested'that he is ready to step out should a man better fitted for leader-Chip come forward. His stand in this Jfrj^tM 1$ to be cottmentleJ, and .wheu How much publicity should a newspaper give an enterprise like the sale of the Dominion war loan or the U.S. Liberty loan for nothing. They are debating that question in the States, and the Yakima, Wash., Republic sees it this way: The question whether the government should pay the newspapers for advertising tho next bond issue is coming in for discussion. Some people think the papers ought not to charge for such advertising, but should carry it free as a patriotic duty. Very few of these people have any idea how much the publishers have already done, when measured in I dollars and cents, as a patriotic duty. A still smaller number have yet produced any convincing reason why publishers should refrain from taking the government's money merely in order that it may have more to spend with other manufacturers. SOLDIERS' VOTES Ottawa, Aug. 23.-Sir Robert Borden, Hon. C. J. Doherty, F. B. Carvell and A. K. MacLcan were in conference today with the purpose of reviewing the contentious clauses of the military voters' act. which has been under review for three days and on which practically no progress has been made. There has been talk of tho bill being carried to a point where it would be necessary for the government to invoke tho closure rule in order to pass the measure. Tho clause of tho bill to which most serious objection is taken is that giving the Canadian soldiers who are not residents of Canada, right to vote in any constituency. It is maintained that if non-residents are given the vote they Bhould elect a representative at large to represent them in the house. After the conference was over, A. K. MacLean expressed the view that an agreement would be reached. .While all poiuts had not been covered he said that tt had been agreed that a soldier who is a Canadian will havo tho right to vote In the constituency in which he lived before leaving the country.
