Asked for Resignation Tho premier, it is understood, communicated with Mr. Cross, asking formally for his resignation on Wednesday last. To the communication Mr. Crosa made no rooly. not oven an acknowledgment of the letter. As no re.sponsc came, the "premier on Friday decided to have Mr. Boyle appointed forth^vlth, and the govornorin-council rescinded the order-in-council passed In mil, appointing Mr. Cross Kttorney-general. The New Minister Alexander Grant MacKay, M.A., K. ('.. M.L.A., who, it is expected, will become a member of the Alberta government within a day of two, is recognized as one of the ablest men In public affairs in Canada, and has had a notable political career In the Ontario provincial legislature, as well as in Albena. lis is a lawyer by profes-Hlon, and is'one of the ouLstanding criminal specialists of .western Canada. He is the foremost authority on municipal legislation and organization in this province, and has given valuable seri-ice on conatitutional law as a member ot the legislature. Born In Sydenham, tirey County, and ho continued to represent the constituency until 1912, despite the fact that It was n Consorvfttlve riding. During this ten-year term of offico his outstanding ability as a debater and legislator brought him to the forefront of provincial politics, first as minister of lands, foreRts and mines, November. 1904, to January. 1905, In tho dying hours ot the Ross govern-mont, when hn wan brought in to provide a factor of much needed strength and prefltlge. Tho defeat of that government In 1305 put the Liberal party In opposition and the strong character of Mr. MacKay In oppoiiltion, brought him to the leadership of tho party In 190S In BUCcoBsion to Qcorge P. Qra-haui, who Joined tho Laurier administration. Mr. MacKay led the Liberal opposition for four years, which were years of discouraged effort to reorganize and rehablUtato a party, thoroughly disgraced by a previous decade ot corruption. Comes to Alberta Tn 1912 Mr. MacKay broke off all his connection In Ontario and removed to Alberta where he eatabllshed the partnership ot MacKay, Hanley and Boyd, and settled In Edmonton. The next year ho was elected to tho Alberta legislature to repre.'^ent the constituency of Athabasca. He was ro-olected In 1917. His career In Alberta has established his reputation for strength and sagacity and he hag been recognized as one ot the most valuable members of the house. In support of every progres.slvo policy introduced by the government.! An Interesting Week The political events of the last few weeks are of considerable interest. On learning that Uie premier was determined to carry out his intention, Mr. Cross began to tight to liold his place in the government. Ho and i his associates circulated the riimcr that there wa.-; serious diasension In the government, that it was part ot a plan -to punish all the Laurier Liberals in the government, and that nil these members were to be replaced. At the same time a summon.s was sent out to all the Liberal members who seemed Inclined to support .Mr. Cross, and who were uptriendly to Vnion government. The summons did not give any definite reason for tho emergepcy meeting, and did not refer to the Cross incident. Six members ot the legislature. Including .Messrs. Lessard, Walker, Kb-liett, Atkins, Morkeberg and Uae, answered the summons. On the day following, Mr. Prudden also put in an appearance. The six were met in Hon. A. G. MacKay BIG STEAIR -CAICHES FIR Montreal, Aug, 26.-While loading oil 5t the Imperial Oil Company's wharf, Longue Point today, the Canadian Pacific Ocean Services liner Lake Manitoba, a steamer of more than 8000 tons, caught fire. Equipment from all the east end fire stations is battling with the flames, and strenuous efforts are being made to keep the fire from the ship's oil tanks. The Lake Manitoba is a steel steamship which has been In the combined passenger and freight service of the Canadian Pacific Railway between Montreal and Liverpool for some months. Before the war she brought many emigrants, as well as cabin passengers to Canada.

The visiting members were quite convinced ot the sincerity of the premier. In fact, they had never doubted it. They were made doubly sure wlien they learned that the probable successor in the cabinet had been the foremost Laurier supporter In western Canada. The majority of them went the Jength of expregsing approval of the action of the premier,, and no one disapproved. The effort was a complete failure.

OPPOSED TO THENEWDRYLAW . Washington, Aug. 26.-President Wilson, senate prohibition leaders said today, is not opposed to legislation pending in the senate proposing national prohibaiou during the war, but has suggested that the proposed time for Its becoming effective-January 1, next.-be extended.

The prohibi-t'on hill was temporarily side traclced today in tiie senate in favor of tho man power legislation and also to give, time for the negotlatibna between the 9Ppoaing factions. SUCCESSOR TO EARLDOM KILLED O. T. Lathrop has returaed from a buaineas trip through Washington and Oregon. He reports that crops In that part ot tho west are not so good as tl)oy are hero, and that on many farms valued at $100 per acre tho reaper will not be used this year. Mr. Lathrop atatos that the agri-oiiUural experts in those states are oppoBOd to tho greater production MDipaign where it results in a fanuor aroiiping more land than he can properly hnidlQ, causing poor (arming and a reduction of tho average yield. Tho effort next year will bo for a big Vancouver, Aug. 26.-Major, the Hon. Leonard V. Drum'niond-Hay, -M.C, in direct line of succession to the Earldom ot Kimioult, Perthshire, Scotland, has been killed In action. He was the eldest son of Mrs. J. M. Dour-neas of Vancouver and wont to Franco two years ago as a lieutenant with the I'rlncess Pnirlclaa. He won his military cross at the battle of tho Somme, and was promoted to a major at tho ngo ot 22. A younger brother, Lieut. Eric nrummond-Hay.

The lack ot servants has come lo be a real problem In English homes of every and the sudden introduction of food substitutes lias lillod most amateur cooks with dismay. So far only scien-tifls cooks-domestic science experts who have had special training-have been able to uso substitutes effectively and economically in the preparation ot really palatable and digestible meals. The average home-trained housekeeper requires a great deal ot advice and teaching before she can devise proper meals-from tho raw food materials now available. The preparation of food ordinarily comprises at least one-third of the labor of housekeeping, and in mtmy private establishments consume the whole time of one or two domestic workers. Tho community kitchen means a tremendous conservation of labor aa 40 or 50 workers pro porly organized in a central kitchen stuff can do tho work of about 400 servants in Individual kitchens. English papera ot recent date bring the news that many of these kitchens hiivo become so popular that they are likely to become permanent, especially aa Mr. Clynes has warned the British people that food control must continue for some time after tho \\ar. Undoubtedly scientific methods of food conaorvatlon will bo necessary for America for tho no.xt 10 or 15 years it everyone Is to be fed. and this program opens lip an Interesting flelil. ot posslbllitioa for women trained In scientific cooking. Up-to-date tho aver-ago woman has been given no proper training to meet such conditions, even in the schools. The courses of dontes-tic science taught usually in Canadian public schools have not been acien'co at all, but merely technical insti-uction in cookery, based on several hundred recipes for more or less oxpensjve dishes. When there is a shortage' of any raw material required aa an ingredient of these dishes, the public school graduates and even tho domes-tin science instrnctora have proven to be rather helpless. Tho food control ot tho future moans frequent curtailment of common food materials, varying with crop tallures and transportation conditions. It we are to avoid any serious change in home llto, we must begin a mucli more vigorous program ot education, and wo must reorganize otir public school courses on a thoroughly scientific' basis. We must ttlso demand a more thorough training of instructors than any Canadian institution is givlifg at present.-Morning Albertan. The attack utterly failed. General llangin's army repulsed tho Gorman onslaughts everywhere and in some instances gained ground. Tho French flung hack the attacking troops oven beyond their starting point.
