Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 25, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE FOUR THE fciiirHBRID^GE DAILY ' HER ALD THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 191G aLetbbriDoc Hlberta OAIUY AND WEEKLY Subscription Ra are .ifraid of free wheat, wanting to keep fholr good market nil to thwn.ielvos. Tho feeling is so strong on the point that If a Republican president Is elected ne.\t fall the cla.uso is practically as good as repealed, while there Is a possibility that President Wilson will make votes for himself in the border states by having the clause repealed before the olaction rolls round. If the clause is repealed, the free wheat issue in Canada will be a dead letter, arid the government at Ottawa will feci secure on that point. The farmers of the west may as well realize that they will never get free wheat with the Borden government in power. They must now trj-some other tack. SPEECH FROM THRONE FORECASTS LEGISLATION No new legislation, which had not before been hinted at, was revealed THE SITUATION BETWEEN U. S. AND GERMANY - Von Bemstorff, the German ambassador to the United States, ought to be in fear and trembling these days. He is in danger of being kicked bodily out Washington's front door. His presence is obno.xious to Uncle Sam. And no wonder. In seauon and out of season Von Bemstorff has been propagating a policy throughout the United States against file allies. He has endeavored at every turn of the wheel to cause trouble for Uncle Sam by fomenting trouble which would bring the allies into conflict with the U. 3. He has been behind every Te.uton plot. Including bomb outrages, dynamiting of bridges, etc., that have kept the U. S. department of justice busy for the past sis months. Proof of this was found in the papers of Von Papen, confiscated by the British, showing that Von Bemstorff had paid over the money from the German embassy treasury to A'on Papen, who paid it over to tools like Von Horn and others. S,uch action Is far from what the United States had a right to expect from an ambassador representing one of the leading powers of Europe. But to show how it was regarded in Ger-m'any, witness the action of the Kai-. ser in .decorating Von Papen on his return. By this action the German emperor put the stamp of approval in the speech from the throne deliver-1 ^n Bemstorfi s trickmess hence ed yesterday afternoon by Lieutenant further estrangement which has Governor Brett, His Majesty's ,ew ^e^n heaped up on top of the stramed relations resulting from the German Catarrh of the Stomach Pleasant, Simple, but Safe Effectual Remedy for It. and TRIAL PACKAGE MAILED FREE.

State........... reproseptatire in this province, at the opening of the provincial legislature. The equal suffrage bill, and the bill incorporating the demands toward prohibition contained in the referen-diiin last July, will be the main pieces of legislation to be dealt with. A number of bills or amendments suggested by the United Fanners will likely come up, but none of these are �considered to be of a contentious nature, and unless something important develops, the session should conclude its labors in four or Ave" weeks. 'One paragraph of the speech from the throne deserves more than passing mention: "The public accounts .lor the last fiscal year will be laid before you, as well as the estimates for the amounts required for expenditure during the .coming year, all pre-ipared with due regard to economy and the retinirements of the public pervice." Tl\e Herald bopes that this will be carried, out In very deed. The cities of the province have set a good ex-iimple by economizing in their e.x-pendlturea, and the people- of the province Tfould be well pleased it the government -wodld follow suit. It is t.pue- that -the. Ottawa government showed little evidence of a desire to economize in current expenditures, Imt the'iEdmontoh govemipent'would jdo Ti;en�to;^do as husihess concerns itave- doine^reduce their expenditure for current expenses to the minimum, it is a war measure and aa such it will be hailed by ^he people. submarine policy. As showing the general ^^ew of the mass ot United Statesians toward the German propaganda in that country, the following from the Buffalo News is interesting: Kaiser Wilhelm has been pleased to confer the order of the red eagle on Captain Franz von Papen, recalled German  military attachc to the United States."- So reads a Swiss dispatch. We expected this. Captain Franz von Pa-pen's deeds demanded a decoration. His work merited a reward. His devotion deserved recognition. All true .Americans will be pleased at this act of the kaiser's. It has cleared the air. By having pinned the decoration upon the breast of Von Papen the kaiser has put his sign manual to that ofllcial's acts and we know the captain as one ot the Ger; man soveirclgn's trusties. 'We are thankful to him for placing an ofliclal tag on our whilom friend and labeling him "tho goods." We now know w'hat is Von Papen's quality, his locus standi, his position In the councils. We do not begrudge Captain Franz von Papen his decoration. We wish him Joy of his "red eagle," so fitting and so symbolical a decoration. Liberals Desert Norris Govt, on Bi'Lingualism Winnipca. Feb. 23.-Passionate op position to the repeal ol the bilingual clause in the public schools' act was expressed by the French-Canadian members of the legislature today,' when lion. R. S.

Bob Rogers confessed an open mind on the subject, there Is J.uat a chance that the measure would ^have passed. But six months have_ gone by; open minds haye closed like clams; partj Interests are supreme. The result of the vote on the llirrift resolution was a foregone conclusion from the time the house opened six weeks ago. Last fail, when the west was harvesting the greatest crop in its history, when congestion faced the grain fhlppera on every hand, certain members ot the government exhibited a laudable concern about conditions and admitted that it might be we)l if Canadian wheat could find an outlet .

A sick soldier' cannot work with vigor any more than you can work with energy when you are weak, tired, almost sick. The government of one of our allies is giving each soldier a vial of cod liver oil* every day because far-reaching experiments show how wonderfully it increases the calories of human energy and gives them strength to prevent winter sickness. Is this riot convincing proof that you need it at this season to enliven your blood to prevent sickness? Cod liver oil is scarce and high-priced this season and many inferior grades may be offered. But remember that SCOTT'Si2tt�oneEMULSION wkick guarantees pure cod liver oil-free from harmful drugs. SCOTTS EMULSION IS MADE IN CANADA. If you are subject to colds, throat or lung troubles; if you are easily tired, run-down or have thin blood, you should take Scott *s Emulsion at once. If your children are back-�vvard in growth, frail or anaemic, nothing will do them so much good as 5co*f's Emulsion, and for girls and women in home or business it is nature's great strength-builder. Scott's is not a "secret" medicine. It is a rich blood-food and a pure tonic; it contains nothing harmful and is pleasant to take. It is prescribed by physicians and liberally used in hospitals and private schools. One bottle may prevent a sickness. At any drug store-Start it to-day.
