A, Buchanan John Managing Director Businesi Manager ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR Th'ough the Russians are in full re- treat along the whole of the eastern front, from north to south, the cry of their leaders still is "No peace while the invaders are on Russian They disclaim any intention of con- tracting a separate pence, and say that they will continue the fight tcr a finish. Having driven the Czar's forces out of Poland and back onto the soil of Russia proper, the Teutons are now bending their efforts to driving them also out of the little part of Galicia that still remains to them. From now on Russians will be fighting for foot- holds on their own territory.

KILLED IN ACTION N casualty Hit YOUR KING AND COUNTRY NEED YOU RIGHT NOW! Farmers should put forth every ef- fort to get the ripened grain cut. Ev- ery day counts now and not a mo- ment should be wasted. PUT- THE' BLAME IN THE RIGHT PLACE Since they find that the mass of people are opposed to an election. durT ins the War, some of the Conserva- tive newspapers are endeavoring 'to create the impression that the politi- cal discussions which have been tak- ing place since the War started are due to the action of the Liberal party. The reeord'of events in Canada since August, 1914, will prove absolutely that the Liberal party, through its leader, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, proposed a truce and observed a truce until they found out that the Conservative party, was' preparing for an election in the fall of 1914. There may be some Conservatives who feel that the Lib- erals should still have persisted in re- fraining from political discussions and aHowed the Conservatives to proceed with, their election arrangements; but that is not the nature of the people who call themsehes Liberal in this "country. Under cover of a truce they were not going to allow the Conserva- tives to catch them napping. Asa matter of fact, the Conservatives were eadeivoringjto use the offer of the Liberal leader to adhere to a. truce as a means ot taking the Liberals un- awares and springing an election upon the country. The Conservatives nev- agreed to a truce' and never ob- .served a truce since the War com- menced. The Hon. A. E. Kemp, a member of the government at Ottawa, made a' declaration that there never was a truce between the parties, and that truce would not have been agreed to by the Conservatives.: At the very time when, a truce was supposed to be in the Conservatives in; Al- berta held nomination conventions _ snd placed candidates in the field for ihe Federal House, and the patronage committee -in Lethbridge lopped off the heads of office holders who had been appointed by the late Liberal government, and the chopping was done -in the coldest kind of a way, without a charge'being preferred, and irtthout an investigation: being held. Now we find some of the Conserva- tive trying to blame ihe Liberal part; tor the precipitation of. ooliticai discussion during the War. Evidently the} oinected the Liberals' to fold their .ariasj-and allow office Solders to be dismissed without criti- tgainst grafting in war contracts; In sd in the Held by tlieir opponents and not take any action themselves, to re- main dumb and not murmur a word lisni, to permit candidates' lo be piac- our Conservative friends evident- ly, thought they were permitted to io at they liked during, the War, and '.hat the Liberals must.sit in a corner ind silent. There could have DMH a political truce at tne beginning'of the War that would lave been carried Ihroush to the con- iliuiOB of War. Tbe blame for With oil gushing from the depths and grains, grasses and stock produc- ins wealth on the surface, the Card- ston district should soon be roiling in wealth.' Cardston country. There is good rea- son to believe, however, that if there is a producing oil area in Alberto it is more likely to bo foued in the ex- treme south country than any place else. Twelve battalions of Canadians will soon sail across the Atlantic. Let us see that we have always twelve battalions ready to answer the call, until the -war is concluded. Mr. Dunham's hint to the business men is worth heeding. This is not a time for th'e blues. The country is producing great wealth, and business conditions will improve wonderfully from now on, in fact, they have al- ready 'improved. The safest way to develop our oil fields is being adopted by the com- panies in the Cardston district. They are boring first, and when they find oil in paying quantities they may put some stock on the market. They are not spreading stock certificates all over the country, 'and promising to bore later. We all hope genuine gushers are discovered in the Card- ston field. Now Is not the time to start another oil company stock epi- demic. Legitimate development is the great need, and that is the policy pursued ny the companies in the EICKEDUPIN SSING! THE EUSV HAN C A. Brower, M.P.P., may be ap- pointed sheriff of Elgin county.
