A.' Buchanan John Torrance Mauasing Director Business Manager BRAVO! RAINBOW The report ot the capture of the German 'cruiser Leipsic off Vancouver Island is an extremely interesting item of news. This is intensified in the (act 'that the Rainbow took a part in the ecsagenient, and Canada has contributed, even though in a small way, to the defeat of the enemy in wMch she was for the flrst time act- ively represented. The gallant little Rainbow is now how we shall regard her. While we shall do our duty with our men on land when tie opportun- ity arrives, it is satistactory to know that when called upon we can effect- ually show that we can hold .our own on the sea. Bravo! Rainbow. THE "SITUATION is REASSURING This is a time when we have to keep cool. Humors, sinister or other- wise, are bound to fill the air as to the- progress of tlie war. 'Until official announcements are received these should >be taken with a grain of salt, nnd probabilities and possibilities fully analyzed. We had a sample of -wild news yes- terday when by some subtle means the report went around that General I'reneh and British forces had been captured. Our phone was kept busy asking for confirmation of this public anxiety was soon put to rest by boua fide. despatches jchichi came to baud giving a new complexion, and placing things as they actually were.

A-large parrot the town ot'Shelton, county sent of Mason county, Wash., was destroyed by fire with a loss of While lathing in the vicinity ot Duntahagby, Ireland. Miss Eleanor Stewart, daughter of Mr. C. P. Stew- art, D.L., ot Horn Head, was drowned. The Curiard liner Aquitania, now in the government service, anchored at the Mersey Bar, London, with her bows damaged, according to a Lloyds despatch from Liverpool. An attempt to blow up a London bank was made by placing an infernal machine in a deed bos to be deposited in the vault.. The scheme was detect- ed by hearing a ticking in the bos. The government has been advised by a cable London that the Bri- tish government, has removed the em- hargo on West. India sugar. Sugar now is .being exported, from the West Indies to Canada.

If setbacks to tne Allies occur it should not be forgotten that they are by no means at the end of their re- sources. It was only the other day that Lord Kitchener, in his speech before the House of Lords, announced that Britain .would, have in the course of six months in readiness forty di- visions making up a total of 800.000. Behind these there are still more men from all parts of the Empire. So far as the Germans are- concerned, their army is now at its greatest strength, and with them there can 'be nothing much in the way o! recoup- -Tiieni. The process will, therefore, bo one of exhaustion so far as Germany is concerned. With the Allies on the other hand there will be ample sour- ces of supply. It is thus plainly a case of a bank Tilth all its capital put out, and Uiat of a bank with large reserves stiil to draw from. So long as the Allies keep the en- emy in its present' position, even without driving him back, there is so much advantage in the matter of time gained.

The Kaiser got the jump on the Al- lies and is forcing them back now by .sheer weight ot numbers. But there is a (lay of reckoning coming. Tonight is the night every man capable of bearing arms should go to the armory and enroll in the battalion being formed. Other cities are calling mass meet- ings to determine .what can "best be done to help the Empire'ih'its'time ot need. Why not Lethbridge? Good advice to those who remain at home from tho war: Buy only goods made within the Empire; let the producers, whether manufaclur ers or fanners, produce as much as possible.

The evidence in the investigation into the conduct of the chief of police of Reglna, held before Judge Farrell, was completed Saturday, some forty witnesses having been examined. The charges Investigated were mostly concerned with the use of stool pig- eons, the alleged laxity of the police during an extraordinary series oi rob- beries earlier in the year, and the methods of. the police regarding lost children. With a view to meeting the serious ituation.of the building business in Montreal as a result of the'-war, the Builders Exchange has sent out cir- culars asking that a meeting of con- tractors and workmen be called in a lew days to discuss a proposition to continue building operations the re- mainder of the'season, the contract- ors to cut out profits and the work- men to accept hall pay, or a little more. Contractors say that unless It better to buy roofing from a big can back, .up .its When called upon than to buy from the little fellow who may not make good when his roofing falls down.
