Barnes, the jiew British min- ister of pensions, visited Lethbridge ia-the early part of the war, and those who" met him were.greatly impressed h his sound common sense. He is a labor leader. Sir 'Robert Borden has every loyal, peace loving Canadian with him in his declaration that there can't be any truce .-in this .form of- inconclusive peace, wbicl would prove and establish nothing would be wicked, irre trievable, inexcusable, blind and blind jng waste such as we dare not for one moment contemplate. ;We think such a peace would be treason to the dead disloyalty to the living, an assault on the authority of government, an open appeal-to the lawlessness of aua-rhy a deliberate outrage on the principles of patriotism, and even on the sacred precepts "of religion.

That is the only sure founda- tion. And "of such a realization we no sign in 'Germnjjy at present." .Mere-lip service .profession -of re- pentance, what we might call formal We read that Gen.

There are 13 vacancies in the Canadian House of Commons and the- majority have been vacant for more than a year. Why are they not la Sir Robert Borden afraid to test .the feelings of the electorate?
