Buchanan John Torranee Maoaglag Director Business Manage BRITANNIA AVENGED Everything in connection with the campaign fades into temporary insig- nificance before tie splendid achieve- menl of tlie British fleet off the Falk- land Islands. Three of the enemy's cruisers hava been sunk, and before these lines are in print we may Hear of the capture or internment of tbe remaining two which formed his pquadron. .Details so far point out that the British ships were practically iin- tscathed. Retribution but sure has followed on the wake of the Good Hope and the ifonniouth, and Britan- nia stands avenged. Her trident may have been temporarily -wrested from her hands in southern waters, but the (spirit of the breed that mans her chips has seen to it that it is not for long that it should remain from Ihose to whom by right of the prow- ess of centuries It properly belongs. Apart from Its practical effect the taoral effect of the blow delivered to the enemy's fleet will work him a deadly harm. 11 with the most fan- tastic vagaries of fortune his wildest dreams of a conquest on land is real- .ised there still stands Britain's first lino of defence, insurmountable barrier to tha' accomplishing of his nmbitions.

EXISTING ON ITS OWN RESOURCES :Medicino Hat's municipal campaign !s of no particular Interest to Leth- Sbridge, bnt statement made by alaypr Brown at a public meeting in iMedicine Hat the other night war- yants the consideration of the Herald. It appears that in Medicine Hat the city council is giving 5200 00 a month to each newspaper during the present financial stringency, and this policy of the "Medicine Hat council is meet- ing with criticism during the cam- paign, and Mayor Brown in defending thp council for its action stated, ac- cording to Medicine Hat Times, that "the policy was endorsed and ap- iproved 'by prominent railway men in- in the city, and tne assistant Vice-president Bury on a recent itisit to the city had commended the Conaeil for their action, and he had them that Lethbridge was sup, porting its paper to the eiteut of J250 month to save it from beeomlBS a THE GERMAN ARMY NEAR LOPZ The map shows tho position of tHe by German army near Lpta which to su, hapffly. necessary for the Her Bid -to deny tills statement, but since ft has been published m Medicine Hat and It bag been made to appear tiit a Lethbridge newspaper -was un- to publish a daily issue without -municipal assistance, we desire to the report as an absolute false- bood.
