Turk forces are fleeing be-fore the Russian advance in thousands, the morale of the army entirely gone. The Turk losses at Erzerum are placed at 40,000 killed, wounded and prisoners. The Russian advance is prboeeding along their entire front. Premier Asquith's new war credits will, bring the total war debt of Britain now to over a billion pounds. The Trading with the Enemy Act Is being carried rigidly into effect In England, as the sentencing of prominent business men to jail terms gives evidence. United States government is preparing to discipline Count Von Bem-Etortf, the German ambassador at Washington, for instigation of plots throughout tbe States. His recall may (eventually be asked for. THE STATUS OF- CANADIANS OF GERMAN PARENTAGE A correspondent writing the Herald asks some pertinent questions regarding the status of citizens, bom In' Canada or the United States, who are of German or Austrian parentage. He asks: "Wo.uld some reasonable and fair � minded person suggest how a German American or Canadian bom, who does not hold In any way with the views of the Kaiser or German kultur, can satisfy the authorities of'their loyalty to the Kmplre, the land of their adoption and birthplace, who have in several instances relatives now fighting In the British trenches for the freedom of their country, and the subduing of German militarism?" Recent developments In Canada, such as the burning of the parliament buildings at Ottawa and the soldiers' riots in Calgary, make this question one of paramount Importance to persons whose parentage,bears any taint of alien enemy origin. So far as the Herald can see, the only thing people so troubled can do is to go about doing their duty by CSinada and their community as they have always done, always remembering that Canada's light la their fight, and that Canada is a British colony where Teuton Xrlghtluluess has no counterpart. By giving no redson to doubt their loyalty Is the one best way for Canadians of German parentage to remain unmolested. apples raised at home as well as those which climb the tariff wall. It would bo well for dealers and growers to bear in mind the vitally important fact that the pocketbook of the average consumer is more often empty than lull these days." ALBERTA WOMEN AND THE FRANCHISE In view of the fact that a bill will be passed at the session of tbe Alberta legislature which convenes Thursday, which will give the women of the province a vote on all elections within the province, it is Interesting to note what the London Free Press has to say on the subject. Woman suffrage In the east has not met much support from the body politic, but the west is waking them up and the experiment here will be watched with great interest. The Free Press says that: "The adoption by Manitoba of woman suffrage is the entering of the wedge In Canada. Women who want to vote should have the privilege. To say that they cannot exercise the franchise as Intelligently as men is to pay a compliment to a great com pany of men who do not recognize the value of the franchise, since they so seldom exercise it. "It almost seems as though woman might in some degree loso her place of other days-the place in the home, �where she is surrounded by the thoughts and protection of her menfolk and absolved from contact with the outside world. If this were so it would be a thousand pities. Yet what are we to make of the situation that is crowding Itself upon us, of the woman who goes fearlessly into the world to take her place with men in every walk of life, and who demands her full voice In the government of the country?" Where Is the bear that fooled us on Candlemas Day? Berlin, Ont., council voted by 13-2 to change Us name. The name Is all right but not so the associations. Bow Island has done well by the Kilties in the recruiting campaign and will do more. It is a live town.

APPLES AND THE PRAIRIE CONSUMER We had been hoping against hope that the new duty on apples -would simply mean that we would have B. C. apples to eat at the same old price without the Washington product to Interfere. We hoped that with the competition cut out, 'the B. C. growers would patriotically refuse to raise prices. We had hoped; they would be content yrlth whaf ishduld be a better lnarket.^^. .r..;'..:'.:: But'p.ur hpp^p^.,iwe ^doomed, >A Vaii couver frtj|i�wii'y)lesaler who believes In telling';tBe:i^|li-^ays the consumer wilV'WayjVto'''jjay th^ piper-It he can,' Jtegaidtogj.tbe protected apple on,*^blch"'wel" will now regale oursefves'at longTdlstance Intervals, the VifctorJa Daily Times has this to say: 'A Vancouver wholesale fr.ult dealer says the increase in the customs duty on apples will not restrict the Imports of that product from Wash-Ington. He adds that the only difference win be tliat the consumer will have to pay more tor his apples. Of course the consumer will have to pay tbe duty. He always does, not only upon the Imported article, if he buys It, but also upon the^local product tbe duty Is intended to protect, the price of which is raised accordingly, )3ut the conclusion that the Importation of Washington apples will not . be restricted by the proposed tax has one iatal weakness.

A WORD FOR THE CARRIER BOY yHE LETHBRIDGE HERALD employs twenty-four Carrier Boys, and the faithful service which they render alike to the paper and the subscriber entitles the lads to a word or two of recognition. Their ages run from eleven to fifteen years. They discharge their work well, and very often under trying conditions. It is iiot sufficient to print a paper on schedule time. The carrier boy, always alert to perform a favorable service, must frequently battle agaiiist serious pliy.sical or climatic conditions to deliver the pai)er to his customers at the same hour... Sometimes this is not possible, yet very few complaints are made by the subscriber. It may be 20 below zero, yet these Carrier Boys perform their work Avithout a murmur. The publishers, therefore, hope to have the cooperation of every suh.scriber in making the additional responsibility of collecting each Aveek from their customers as light as possible. To the fathers and mothers, to the young men and women of Letli-' bridge, this appeal is made on behalf of the Carrier Boy. Assist him in ever}' way you can, and by making prompt settlement encourage liiin. A great many, if not all, subscribers have signified their desire to'.pay 10c a week to the boy. The Herald will be responsibhi for all moneys paid in this way. The entire delivery system Avill be on a strictly cash basis after Monday, Ifebruary 21st. The new plan has many advantages over the old method of collection. The ticav system means a considerable increase in the bo3's' wages, a deserving recognition of service not possible under the old subscription rate. They will earn in most cases twice what they did before. These boys Avill be the men of the future. The business training and discipline involved in tlieir new duties will be invaluable to the boys as they grow older; therefore we bespeak foi^' them a kindly reception under the new order of service.. Help the boys all you can. If you, the fathers or mothers of Lethbridge, have a boy earning liis own livelihood for the first, time, have a chance t6 say a word of encouragement to the lads, don't hesitate to dQ.:yQnr, part.  It may be your son was glad to receive a helping hand when he first started up; indeed, there are few men of today young or old, who do not look back with a feeling of gratitude to the man or woman who aided them in their first start in life. The introduction of the weekly payment system on the 21st of February affords you an o])j)ortiniity to repay this debt. Have your 10c laitl aside for the boy M'hen he calls, and give liiin your hearty support. The faithful Carrier will not soon forget those who thus helped him get a new start in life. Such is the true,spirit of tlic west. . If instead fof-paying weekly, yoAi prefej to pay tw5 or three weeks, or even'two, three or more months in advance, you can do so. Pay the bo}'^ or send a check to the office. The Carrier Boy, under the new systeiu of nuik.- '. ing his own collections,' will roiTtler better service. Once every Aveek he will jiersonally interview eacii of his subscribers and coming thus-ih direct contact Avitli every I'cader oh his route, AviU be responsible  to them for a satisfactory delivery. 8iij|)scribers will not hesitate Avhon making their weekly payments to refer to any omissions or carelessness in the ser- . vice; but should matters not be promptly a:'djusted to their satisfaction, they should corhmunicato direct with the circulation department of the Herald.
