Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - February 8, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta 11 ii PAGE FOUR THE LETHfiRIDGE DAILY HERALD FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1918 Iftbbttfcje t>etalb DAILY AND WEEKLY 1 will come from Western Canada if the ! i government keeps right at it. It is ! about time word came that the duty ; was to be taken off agricultural im- � plenumts. We have waited Ions for; it and are setting just a little weary I waiting. ; ' Proprietors and Publishers (The lethbrioge herald print-ing company. limited S23 6th Street South. Lethbridge W. a.

THE PROGRESS of THE WAR That the Germans will deliver their Bpring offensive at two points is clear from the manner in which they sre * massing their troops. Huge numbers sum than by the people of Canada. In other words, while the borrowings in 1!*1T were F only twice as great as in l'U;i. the amount which the Canadian people themselves supplied was twelve times as great. It took the war to show Canada what it was capable of doing. By May of this year $7v0.0n of our borrowings will have come from our own people. Similarly we should remember that by the end of and during the period of the war. Canada are being gathered together south- east of Antwerp, which undoubtedly | will have loaned to the Imperial treas- presages an offensive on the Belgian frontier, where another big army is \ being massed iv. the upper Alsace, vhere probably another great attempt will be made to break through there. [Hence the steps being taken by the Swiss to protect their borders. Xo definite information is to be obtained as to the progress of peace negotiations at Brest-Litovsk. A complete silence shrouds these negotiations. ury $300,000,000 more in Canada than the Imperial treasury will have loaned to us in Great Britain. We will thus pay to our own people a large share of the interest occasioned by war loans, and will for the first time collect from Great Britain an important sum for interest upon net advances made to the British treasury during the war. BRANCH LINE CONSTRUCTION RUMORS It would be well not to treat tou seriously the rumors that branch railroad lines were to be started or completed this year or any year while the war lasts. These lines are urgently needed by the settlers but in building them steel rails, that are very badly required >n the war zones, would have to be used. It must be decided whether the rails are most necessary in France 2nd Belgium or in Canada. It is almost certain that the decision will be for ^ the war territory. Then again the 'railroads would hesitate about building when labor is so scarce and so expensive, and when nationalization is seriously talked about. Until the question of government ownership or operation is settled there is not likely to be any branch line building. Our people had better not depend upon rumors. It would be just as well to size up the situation as it exists and accept the possibility of no railroad construction until after the war. THE PROGRAM FOR THE LEGISLATURE Practically all the legislation, to be ! considered by the Alberta legislature, > mentioned in the speech from the throne had already been forecasted. It is good to know that measures such as' public service reform, are to be actually adopted. Public service reform means, we hope, economy, efficiency and system in our public service.

Meat exports from the States last year totalled $40^,800.000, but cereal shipmeuts showed a marked falling of over the previous year.

DAYLIGHT SAVING MEA8URB COMING Yesterday's dispatches told of the possibility of a daylight saving scheme I affiliations whatever a wasteful system, and really does more harm to political parties than good. The address also mentions that public works are to be curtailed until after the war. That is right. After the war, men will need employment and we should withhold all public works until that time, so that we can assist in adjusting the employment problem. Prominence is given also to measures for the better attention to the public health. It is a very vital question and deserves the serious attention of our legislators. Human life has been neglected while the health of animals has been given the utmost consideration. In'organizing the public health department, the government should place at the head an able man, without any consideration of political Hon.

Xorth Side (From Our Own Correspondent) Foremost, Feb. C-Last week Mrs. E. S. Beatty ^entertained delightfully at her spacious new home. The large dining room and drawing room were filled with a lively company. Cards were clicking everywhere and faces growing anxious as the end of the rubber drew near. Mrs. U. B.

The cattlemen will be quite willing to swallow the sanatorsbip if tlm minister of customs takes the duty off cattle. REMOVING THE DUTY ON CATTLE Should the Herald's information Irom Ottawa prove correct that cattle are to be placed on the free list, there will be great joy amongst the farmers and cattlemen. Jhere has been a demand for the removal of the duty end the new government seems to have realized the justice of the claim. It is not so long ago since breeding ebeep were placed oh the free list. By the way, there is sound sense in Levi Harker's contention that the importation of sheep under the new customs regulation should be confined to legitimate Canadian farmers and sheepmen. There should be no loophole in the law that would enable ranchers across the border to drive their sheep into Canada and graze them here and take them back at will. The regulation should be for the benefit of actual residents of Canada only. *U for removing duties no complaint Somebody said C. \V. Fisher was after a senatorship. Surely not, since he apparently has a life job as speaker of the Alberta legislature. There certainly was very little op-portunity for a worklrigman to cast a vote on the plebiscite. The hours of voting should have been longer. . In order to obtain new revenue, Manitoba is imposing a tax of one mill upon property. That may be Al-berta's method also.
