It looks to be a plan behind which is tbe desperation bora of the hopelessness of the struggle since the Marne, and the allies are not worrying much over tie result. But that bloody battles will be fought in tie near future may be expected. -UlBtria's reply to the second United States note on the Ancona incident is not expected to be satisfactory, -and a rupture in'diplomatic relations between the two countries is locked for. If it so happens it- will he the most serious step the U. S. has yet taken. Roumania and Russia are still ne- gotiating over terms of the former's entrance into the war on the side pi the allies. She has been promised additional concessions, and if Hussia succeeds in her purpose a new and more promising outlook in the Ballkan theatre should result LINCOLN'S WORDS SPEAK FOR ALLIES The "peace at anr price" -advocates should go back to Abraham Lincoln and read the story of that notable's attitude daring the war between tie north and south. They would find that Lincoln had to deal with pessi- mists and clamorers for peace. And what did he says to them! Just read this: 'On careful consideration of all the evidence accessible it seems to me that no attempts at negotiations with the insurgent Wader could result te any good He -would accept nothing short of severance of tie Union, pre- cisely what we will not and can not Sive His declarations to this effect are explicit and oft-repeated.

WOUL'U BE A BUSY WHITE ELEPHANT The Calgary Albertan remarks: "The Lethbridgo Herald still insists that any freight rate adjustment would be unavailing to nil the Inter- nal elevator In Calgary, and that the only thins that would be satisfactory would be to place another white elo- phant iu the city of Leilibrlise.'' Southern Alberta fanners hardly ngree with the Albertan in this re- aard. Though the Albertan may not know it, there nro thousands of bush- els of the south's 1915 crop still in the .hands of the farmers, which are lying out on tho ground without cover of any kind or description against the weather. And this is not the fault of tbe C. 1'. R. which has moved the crop so far in such an ex- psditious manner as to set a record to aim at for years to come. The fact that the C. P. R. had over 000 bushels of grain rolling oil the Letlibridge division in one day alone shows what the company has been doing 10 help the fanners realize ou their crop, but that doesn't heln Uie farmers who could not get to realize on their crou. Seventy-five per cent, of that mil- liou" bushels passed through Letli- bridge. Many thousand bushels of it likely was tough as tough grading was no exception to the rule this year. It" the farmers could have stor- ed at least a part of their grain here this year so that they could have had the elevator checks to go to the bank with, if they could have stored their tough grain here and had it dried at the elevator at a small charge of a couple of cents a bushel instead of losing peven or eight cents at the head of the lakes, if they could have had the use of the cars two or three times instead of waiting for them to go to Fort William and return, they would have been hundreds of thous- ands of dollars in pocket today. They could have used the money an inter- nal elevator would have made them, and they would have kept the elevator busy. VI'B doubt not the elevator at Calgary is a white elephant, because politics, instead of logic placed it there. But it would be a different story if Lethbridge were the loca- tion.

L. Kemohsr, have sue I ceeded in disposing of bonds the purpose of piping EhtuTal gas from Southern. Allberta !to AVinnincg and intermediate towns. The Medlc.Bc Hat T.mss protests against the exportation of gas from Alberta, and-urges the authorities at Edmonton and Ottawa to put a stop to.the scheme: Tins matter was tbe subject of discussion" in the House of Commons a couple of years ago, tbe member for'Medicine Hat voicing the protest of many of his constituents met acy proposal to export gas outside the province. It was then that while the Dominion could pro- hibit the exnort of gas from Canada to the United States, that step having been taken in the Ontario fields, it could not well be done in tbe case of exportation from one province to an- other. And as the Dominion govern- ment still controls.; the natural re- Bources of the three prairie provin- ces, Edmonton has little .to say. about ft, so that seemed to be about the final word. The province could, it ia true, interfere with, such a. project, by refusing permission to construct pipe lines across the highways. Such .seems the best to take to pre- vent the gas leaving Alberts matter is one igoKhy of dis- cussion, but vtith gas like those at Foremost and BOY Island opening the fear ,that 'Southern Alberta's David Miller, J.
