THE PROGRESS OFTHE WAR The seriousness of the situation cre-ted by Russia's complete elimination from the wan is reallred when it is known that there are 1,500,000 Teuto.i-Ic prisoners in Russia in good tiglu-fng trim, who will now be immediately released for service elsewhere witli, (he German armies. This presents a Aew crisis in the war situation Inas-much as the great of/cosive on the *est Is about to start and the great forces of the Teutons will thus be largely reinforced. " President Wilson has once more emphatically reiterated the position of the allies in his reply to the recent peeches of Czernin and Hertling. with the manner in which he dls-chargea taU duties. At the beginning o{ each parliament the formality of an election ie gone Uirough with, but there la a firm understanding, which ever party, -happens to bo in the majority, the provlou* speaker wrtl not bo displaced but will bo left to retire of his own volition. Thus the present occupant of tho post, Mr. Ldwther, was given it under a Conservative govornmont, but retained 1^, all through the Uberal regime from' 1906 to 1915. and there is not much llkollhood that he will give it up during tho life of the existing House at least. Mr. Fisher has already been In office two years longer than was Mr. Speaker Lowthors predecessor, Mr. Gully; a year longer than was Mr. Peel, and tor tho same length of .time a^ Mr. Brand-the four meutiShed being the last four presiding officers of the British House. Mr. Fisher has made an excelicu: speaker, displaying always the Impartiality and fairness that is the prime requisite in that position.

Mr. F. Gordon Osier of Toronto was elected Treasurer of the Canadian Red Islature. EXPANSION IN FARM FLOCKS It is to be hoped that the meeting of eastern and weatep sheepmen will result in good business for both. With the limSting of the range husiness �nd tbe substitution of farm' enterprises there must be a shifting over of, breeds away from the characteristic range sheep to the fuller fleshed English breeds. Ontario is rather famous for its sood stock in horses, cattle and sheep and no doubt it is good bualnesB for us to draw from the best aources to Increase our purebred sto:k here, it is part of the work of putting Alberta in the lead of all the pro-Tlnces In live stock as we'hope' to Bee It Bome day. No doubt odr sheepmen In tbe east are not overlooking their opportunity to Inspect and purchase good sheep.' MEDICINE HAT PUTS IT OVER CHICAGO Medicine Hat ha^ always had a grievance against Chicago. When a spell of cold weather struck tho Illinois metropolis it was declared from take housetops that it came from Medicine Hat and then when a particularly hot spell made Chicago swelter, the heat wave originated In the Hat. So summer or winter, tho disagreeable weather had its origination in the Gas City. Medicine Hat is getting even. Chl-:^go has had an awful winter while Medicine Hat has been worrying about its Ice supply. Chicago was quickly advised of the mildness of the Alberta climate compared with the snow blocked Itreets of the Windy City and the Chicago Tribime, which has been ln_ line with a policy of Strict civic economy, the city council of Edmonton proposes to do away with lis license department and turn tho work over to the police. Prof. Georga Swain of Boston told tho board of arbitration to fix tho price of C.N'.R. stock that it would take six million dollars to put the line In shape. Mr. Gerald H. Brown, formerly Assistant Minister of Labor, has been appointed Secretary of tho Reconstruction and Development Committee of the Dominion Cabinet. Four cases of smallpox having been discovered in the TJrsulIae Academy, all the citizens of Chatham have been ordered by the city council to be vaccinated imnfediately. Judge R. E. Harris, succeeds Sir jibing Medicine Hat for years, made | Charles Townsend as Chief Justice of its amends In the attached verse: i ^ora Scotia. F. Mellish, K.C., a Halifax lawyer, becomes a judge to fill KNOWS WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT The answer of W... F. O'Connor, K. C, high cost of living commla-�loner, to the produce dealers,who �aid he didn't know what he was talking- about, is a statement that 9093 dozen of eggs were lost in Montreal In Jaunary through spoiling. 'We be-llere Mr. O'Connor knows what he Is talking about. He certainly revealed the tacts about bacon profits and when be can tell to an odd figure the number of dozen eggs that have been lost, ire believe he ha^^ the evldnce against the egg men. Dealers who would allow eggs to be wasted, as Mr. O'Con-uer relates. In order to avoid putting them on the market for fear the price mlghtbe depressed, ought to be jailed-and put at hard labor, too. THERE WAS NOTHING IN THE REPORT That scandal in the militia depart-Bient that the Ottawa Citizen talked bout it a myth and as the Herald published the report and demanded a complete inquiry we do not hesitate BOW to publish tbe result of the In-Testlgatlon. The Citizen says: For the. past lew weeks Ottawa has been seething with reports of an alleged scandal In a branch of the tnilltla department, ihvalving the head' of the branch and a number of the hundreds- of yojing women raployed there. The government ordered an Investigation. It was made by the Dominion Police, by a special commissioner and by private deteotlves. The reports yrhlch have just been . sub-inltted ahsOlutely agree in decIarlnK the Btofies untoundAd and due to �caudal mongers. They state that a very grave Injustice has been done th�i head of the branch In question fmi that without any reason whatever reflections were cast upon the Qinently respectable young women >�mployed In this branch. * The department,- the branch in Qttvation and tbe official whose name . has been Involved in the unrestrained �oaalp arO'all completely exonerated.

St. Mary's council deposed Chief 'Vonng. and promoted Night Policeman Geo. Hunt to that position. It also recommended A. E.

It costs an average of $1.50 a minute for thtf one hundred -or two hundred hours of flying which an aviator must have before he can bo. regarded as a crack military pilot. So states an article in "Flying." Thus Uio training of each of the tliousands of American "soldiers no wbeing taught to fly, at ?90 an hour, will cost from $9,000 to $18,000. Chauncey II.
