Lloyd-George in his speech to the commons at its opening does not see any substantial difference in the speeches of Chancellor Hertling and i Count Czernin regarding Teuton peace terms. ONLjY FAIR TO PRODUCE FACTS The attack upon the Mormon church ' by Hev. Or. Ferguson, an official of the Presbyterian church, is unwise because it is not accompanied by any ; 1 evidence to bear out the statements 5 made. It is easy enough to insinuate but it is another matter altogether to produce proof. Dr. Ferguson has no sympathy with Mormon beliefs and i practices and he has a perfect right to disagree with thai church and its , r methods. When he enters upon an- j other path and alleges that the Mor- j mon people are not loyal and are re- 1 sorting to the practice of polygamy : he should produce proof.

Rigg. the widely known Winnipeg labor man, who has just returned from a conference of labor men held at Ottawa, "the food situation in Canada is already serious, it is bound to become more serious. There have been so many guesses as to when the war will end and so many of them have proved to be wrong, that I will hazard no prediction as to that,*' went on Mr. Rigg. *'But whether the war ends soon or late the food situation will remain serious, for a considerable time. This as the great fact that the people must face and the sooner they face it seriously the better." Mr. Rigjr's advice is sound and should be heeded before it is too late. lie knows the facts, a* they were revealed at the labor conference, and is therefore seized with the real seriousness of the situation. aspersions upon their loyalty and mor- ; ladies' shoes, contained in a ship-a"" wh,n he proves his s.atemen,,. j = T�e ^jT&X^c The Herald maintains that facts and figures should be produced before charges of this kind are circulated. broadcast.

The more food we produce cs individuals and as a country, the l>etter it will be for our soldiers and + for our allies and for the future of the �world. Garden plots can produce collectively an enormous amount of food. Mr. J. A, Oliver, president of the Port Arthur board of trade, in his recent presidential address pointed out that a garden 50. by 100 grew produce valued at $203.3m. The labor on this plot cost $75; fertilizer, $6; seed. $9; a total of $0n. .The Garden Club of Port Arthur pro-ducted ?26,527 worth of vegetables, etc., during the season. The potatoes grown in the gardens and vacant lots were valued at $r�,l*nothe beets, $2,-350; cabbages, $1.4S.~. and so on m r,PO-portion.

Then we can take Magrath !as an instance of a Mormon community that has given generously to the Red Cross, the Patriotic Fund and the Victory Loan. There may be so-called disloyal people amongst the Mormons but there can be found people disinterested in the war and failing to contribute to war causes, in communities almost WI10II3* Canadian by birth. We have some of them right here in Lethbridge. Each year of the war, the New York � "Tribune" points out, has produced; some new instrument of destruction.!

Sir Robert Borden, with probably two or three of his cabinet colleagues, plans to leave for Kngland nexfc .May. or immediately after the close of the coming session of Parliament. The Prime Minister, as a member of the British war council, will attend a meeting of the council, along with representatives of the other overseas Dominions. Various questions affecting Canada's co-operation in the war are to be considered. Probably Hon. N W.

INCREASING THE SESSIONAL INDEMNITY Ottawa, Feb. 4.-Members of Parliament, or some of them, want more money. Living comes high everywhere, and Ottawa is no exception to the rule. The present indemnity is $2,500 per session, providing it lasts thirty days or more. A movement is on foot to raise the limit on the ground that only men of wealth can afford to go into Parliament. By way of supporting the proposal, the fact is cited that a United States congressman draws $7,500 a year. Men who go to Ottawa and remain half the year away from ihelr business deserve a better allowance than $2,r-0'.' a year. They have not only to meet .the expense of living at Ottawa but they are faced with demands for subscriptions, from organizations of all kinds, that are not made upon other people. It is all because they are in politics and people think they legitimate prey. The member from Western Canada must make the greatest sacrifice. Among things hard to achieve the Ottawa Evening Journal places the millenium, Home Rule for Ireland and civil service reform, and Mayor Hardie wouldn't hesitate to add, reducing the tax rate. A. H. Mu3grove, member for North Huron in the Ontario legislature, has been appointed postmaster of Wing-ham, and consequently liis seat becomes1 vacant. There are four vacant seats in the Ontario legislature which will have to be filled now. The late T. G. Carscadden, representing Lennox and ^ddington; the late R. R.
