Your King and Country need you right nowl THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The break between Germany and the United States came Saturday as a bolt from the blue, but as even the German ambassador stated, what else could United States do? The sever-, ance of diplomatic relations between the two countries is now complete as the result of Germany's announcement of unrestricted submarine warfare. While many fully expected the break,, none, believed President, Wil-aon would more until some overt act forced him to make the step. ; . : >-War will altogether likely quickly follow. The first loss of an American life will bring it. United States Is already making preparations tor It. In the meantime Germany has commenced to take her toll of neutral vessels. First on Americazz, then a Spanish; now^ it is a Butch and a Swedish vessel. These neutral nations are also expected to take quick action agiirist She Huns. HoUand will probably bo the first to move. BORDER PATROL is NOW IMPORTANT r Now that the United States has de-claredion the sideiof the allies,^Canadians may expect a recrudescence of iovert acts on the part of pro-German sympathizers in the United States Who, while they would not commit outrages against United States lite -and property, would consider Canada a fertile' ground for their actions. ^Panada must guard against this, aMd 'i^hile we may expect every aid iii combatting the menace from the government of the, States, precautions should be taken. It is reasonable t6 expect that the Dominion government has now taken the possibilities under advisement, and we may expect to h^ar of an early redoubling of border patrol. In the west, the Mounted Police will shortly he free of all other duties in order to attend ; to this. In the east it may. be expected that there will be a'call on the miUUa for-this s&rvlce. and his advisers .lost no time in parleying with Germany. In this, the United States Itdb regained much of the good reputation lost in the bickering with Germany which followed the sinking of the Lu^itania and the Sus-^sex. : The question now is whether the States cat! stop at "measures fehort of war." It hardly seems possible that she can. The sinking of an American steamer with United Statesers on board is sure to be a signal for the final step which will precipitate the States into the war' in very earnest. How much more that may mean than a "measure short of war" we will have to wait and see, but it is hardly to be expected that the States will take any very aggressive part in the war. She will bo plenty busy looking after the "pro-German element at home, and this, together with the supplying of merchant vessels on the seas, will probably be the extent of her participation. But if the States were to go no farther than they have gone up to tlie present, the moral effect of her entrance  into the war is worth more than wc can realize at this time. After the first blast of hate against the Americans on the part of the Germans has expended itself, sober second thinking is going to compel them to face the truth, that they are forsaken by the civilized world. What this, realiiatlon will mean it is hard to say, but it should mean cutting off six months frpm the end of the conflict- : The war has commenced on Us final phase. It is going to be the LETHBRIDGE ' 6Ati^tlwRALD -* PICKED PASSIMQ To^^SfBUSy MAN 1100,000,000 of gold is reported to be secreted In Great Britain. ^' Rodin, the noted sc^ulotor, was mai^ ried in Paris at the age of seVenty-six. � '  �'� ' '� � The appointment of a Medical board for Hamilton was announced by Col.

While this proceeding is anything |;bttt'compllmentary to the officers of the town and school, they state that they I have have nothing to be ashamed of and they are ready for the audit if the kickers will stand the expense, but they are not willing to pay out a lafge sum to satisfy some persons' whims when it is a fact that for many years the town's financial con ditloh was never better than it is at present. Some signatures are being obtained under the specious promise that the government pays the bill and that tlio town will be nothing out- the town councillors want to have further light on this point as to who i>ay8 the bill. The municipal bill provides that each, incorporated town pays for a'ich auditing. Cold weather Is making itself felt in many ways. The extreme drop iu temperature shrank the ^vate^s of Lees creek at the intake to the water mains so as to reduce the pressure and 'allow freezing of the water during the night when practically no flow was required. Work all day at the Intake showed a rod or two of frozen mains and tomorrow it is expected that a good flow will be obtained as there is a small stream coming, through this afternoon b.ut no pressure. The mayor was on the job and' men were kept working last Olght and today, more are to follow until normal conditions' are had. Coal shortage is the fear nowadays. Dnly'a couple of cars of briquettes are on hand and the local dealers find it very difficult to obtain domestic coal at all. Some two cars of nut coal are e.xpected this week and only small quantities are sold to each customer in order to prevent shortage to those whose need may be serious. The town has enough to keep the lighting plant going for about two weeks. It is hoped relief may come in Jess time than that.

WISE CHOICES IN POLICE COMMISSION � The first step for the creation and administration of a provincial police ^rce has beemtak^n by the provincial government, and the action thus far taken should commend itself to the people of the province, for In the choice of such men as Col. Sanders and Malor FrimrOse, the government has made no mistake. 3oth men have been connected with the Mounted Police for 30 years or more, and it is to be expected that ther injiect Into the new organization much of the discipline and efficiency which has always characterized the famous "Wd-ers of the plains. The choice of Arthur Browning, deputy attorney general, is also good, for it provides the prtp^r link between the administration and interpretation of the law, and this is desirable. The duties which the Mounted Police give over to the province on March 1 are many and onerous, and only a well trained .force can cope with them. With the three  men named-for the commission at the helm the people of the^'provlncemay expect to see pie laws properly enforced.
