If a man can ' perform bettor service to Canada by \ remaining at home he should be kept | here, and the man who can best be j spared should go. At the present time there Is absolutely no agency to direct selection, and Canada is still, after a year and a half of war, blun-1 dering along as It did in the formation of the first contingent in the llrsi week after war was declared. It is time for a change. "In Uie House of Commons yesterday Premier Borden expressed the view that we were not more than halfway through the war, Uiat a year or a year and a half of hostilities was still ahead of us. If this prediction be true, and it was based on info:ma-tion obtained by Sir Robert when in England, It only serves to strengthen | J the conviction that our present sys-' j tem, or rather lack of system, in re-j cruiting should be replaced by some (definite plan under which all the in- ; iterests of the countrv will be siife-! j guarded while at the same time pro- i ducing a maximum number ot men for the fighting battalions." offerypu the needed help.

Do it now.' HUN FRIGHTFULNESS AD INFINITUM Germany has lost the respect of the civilized world, and knowing it has nothing more to lose in this direction, has decided to add another notch to her murder policy by treating all allied merchantmen as though they were enemy warships. We hardly think Britain and her allies will scare worth a cent over j this new threat. In fact Germany is rather late in the day making the threat for she has been following the policy contained therein for a long time. She must think that by mak-^ ing the threat she can justify her past acUons in sinking defenceless merchantmen. The German submarine blockade which -was to strangle Britain in a fow short weeks, having proved a dismal failure, we are now expected to quiver In our shoes over the new plan of destruction "made in Germany." But we won't. Talk about getting money from home: the school board sits quietly by and picks it out of the ozone in ?15,000 chunks. Southern Alberta boasted a iot of snow last winter and everv-one pre-1 dieted big crops as a result. But the ! snowfall to date this winter must; neariy equal the 1914-15 record. Can' we hope then to repeat on the crop? So far the German fleet with its 17-inch naval guns sticks close to Kiel, Aa a ball player would say, the German navy belongs to the winter league-sticks around the hot stove and talks of what it's going to do 'next year." DOES CANADA NEED A DEFINITE RECRUITING SYSTEM? Has the time come when something should be done to place recruiting on a businesB-Uke basis and get away from the hap-hazard manner in �which it is now being conducted? By tils we do not mean to insinuate for one moment that recruiting agencies are not perfectly sincere in their efforts. They are; they have a'b'ig task and they have set out energetically to make good. But Premier Borden- made the Statement in the bouse the other day that the war was only half over. Wo presume that the premier has inter, matlon from Uie British government that leads him to this opinion. That means that Canada has IS mouths or more of war times ahead. Canada is .bent ou raising an army of 500,000 men. It 200,000 ot these were at the front at one t,ime, the wastage, calculating at 15 per cent, per month, which is taKen as the standard in this great conflict, would be 30,000 men a month. The Dominion would therefore be able, with 600,000 men in arms, to keep an army ot 200,000 men at the front, and keep it up to strength for 10 or 12 months. It could probably do better, but taking 15 per cent, wastage per month as a bHBls, this is all wo could e.tpect. With these figures as a basis it looks quite logical to assume that hapbap-hazard recruiting has about reached its limit. The Regloa Leader, in an editorial iCftUng with reoruUUig tor the npw Fincher Creek has made a tine recruiting record so far and is making it better every day. It will be remembered that Pincher Creek had a Une record at the time of the South �A-frican war. The free spirit of the foothills is strong in the blood oi j Pincher Crook re.'iideuls. I.tore Geiiuaii tiishlfulnirbs'. linn air raacliineB bombard country school yards in old England, and the Geniiun admiralty announces that it will treat all allied merchant ships as enemy J warships. The Hun, with the speciie !'of defeat staring him in the face, grows more and more desperate.

Warn Other Rest-iurants Calvary, Feb. 11.--Foilowing last night's riots by soldiers and clvilinns, in which two restaurants were wrecked liy the infuriated molt with a damage estimated at SlT'.OOO, the ma.-iagc-nicnt of Cronn's Rathskeller, one of Calgary's higher class e.iilng places, was warned this morning by the soldiers that unless a large electric sign bearing the word "Rathskeller" was taken down at once, the place would meet a similar fate as the other two restaurants. The message to the management ot Cronn's was conveyed by private soldiers, who walked boldly into the place and delivered it. The management announced during the morning that the offensive sign would be removed at once. Nothing new has developed in the situation this morning beyond the fact that private soldiers are walking around bragging that they took part in the riot. Groups of tbem stand In front of the ESghth Avenue place that was wrecked, pointing out the damage to civilian onlookers and threatening to treat other places slmllany it thoy employ Germans, as it is alleged the restaurants in question dd. Lt.Cols. Armstrong and Lowry, the commanding o.Ticers respectively of the soth and 82nd overseas battalions, denied positively this morning a statement that placards were posted at Victoria bnrracl's yesterday atlernoon summoning all the soldiers lo meet at a given hour to march on the restaurants. In spite of this denial, however, It appears clear that the whole thing was preconcerted and It is openly stated this morning that the proposed raid was a topic of current conversation yesterday among the rank and die of the soldiers in training here. There is no doubt also that civilians encouraged and in many cases led the soldiers on in the work ot destruction. li was a civilian who led the soldiers to wreck the dance hall above th^ Eichth Avenue restaurant about which no pro-German complaint had been made whatever.

But money from the l!)l."i crop will be In circulation far into 1016, nnd 1 am reasonably sure that a good deal of thai money will bu converted into live stock; and, as we all know that Is bui ding un strong foundations in the farming b.islness such as we have not had before. �] think the Letliln-ldgo Board of Trrdo will have earned a distinct right to wear a feather in its cnp ever after, if the Bank Act is amended, as asked for by the U. V. A. at their recent convention. In such a way as to enable farmers to buy live stock and give security on it to the banks from whom they may borrow the money to make their ]nirchn?es. For, if that amendment is made, I have no hesitation in saying that it will have been brought abort d'rectly by what Mr. G. R.
