A united that have l eu place in East Prussia and Northern Poland must appear Iw- and it Is dlflicwH to con- strue ihe meaning oi the change that has taken j-lace. Whether the Rus- sians have actually forced to withdraw from the ndvanced posilions they occupied in East Prussia, or are 'morely playing: a role to further the beat of tile campaign, is an .question. Two opinions, how- orerj'may be reasonably accepted. V' First that llie object of the Grand Lhilie Nicholas Is to decimute. as much as he can, the fighting force of enemy .by giving him battle simp- ly for purpose, without, any in: teaiiofl oi gaining ground until the right rime arrives.

The Herald IiarAlj thinks matters i j hare gone so far as that. In fact the Herald 'believes, and we believe many: of tie best business men of the west are of the same opinion, that Leth- hridEa is in the nest position Snaa- cially of any western city outside of ;H -Winnipeg. We have heard the asser-. lion mane by C. P. R- officials that Lethbrldge will' recover from ihe quietly than any other wesiern city. j What then, is our position? We are temporarily embarrassed.

I, Lethbridge does not deserve to be .placed in. such a. predicament. "We .were Uie first city of the west to re- j 'cognize whither We were drifting, and I- we were ihe first city to put on the brakes.

This office had 'been, pro- mised nearly a year ago. hut differ ences over the appointment ot a post master prevented the people of this district receiving the convenieoce. Dr. Warnock, the alert member for ifacleod, secured a statement from Hon. Dr. Rocho, 'Minister of tha Inter- ior, in the House the other evening which indicates that ihe Waterton Likes Park is likely to top reduced in size. Last year the park was con- siderably enlarged, much to the dis- satisfaction of people around fincher Creek and the foothills.
