Tlie French offlcial statement says that the French front has been withdrawn some tliree miles, but tUat the lino has not been broken, and that the German losses have been tremendous, Willi no apparent advantage gained. The Kaiser himself is directing operations, and even beld a rehearsal of the big attack beliind tlte lines before the offensive commenced. A crisis between President Wilson and congress over the rights of neutrals to travel on armed merchantmen subject to attack under the German policy, is ImminenL Congress Is Inclined to the belief that it should officially warn 'Americans to keep off such vessels. President Wilson is emphatic in the stand that America can-Bot' surrender her rights, and retain peace at the expense of her national honor. A Turkish statement claims a 'British defeat in Mesopotamia. there should bo an mvestlgation In Alberta. As nn exnmplo of logical reasoning wo commend this to our readers, whatever shade of politics they may be. ' The truth of the matter la that President l.,Hmb was complaining that part of the money spent was wasted because the roads built were not permanent, and in wet weather disappeared In a lake of mud. Anyono who has had experience with country roads in Alberta, especially in" wet weather, will know without being told that macadam or pavement would bo the only thing to fill the hill. No doubt the government would like to give farmers of the province permanent roads over over\- foot of 150,000 or more miles of road reciuired to serve the communities opened up, but even our Conservative friends will admit that the task would bo gigantic. If some of the roads are not what i tbo age of SI. they should be it is regrettable, but the wonder is that $6,000,000 has been spent to as good advantage as it really has. Trunk roads are fine business, i years, but trunk roads cannot be built In front of every farmer's place without liennlo and Co., Toronto, lost valuable stocks of seeds by fire. Returned convalescent soldiers had to cross Uio Atlantic as steerage passengers. A milltarj* census of Soutli Waterloo shows about three thousan^l physically (it men betlveen the ages of IS and 45.

Temporary work must be done in many places to meet the needs for a few years. Hearst got a cold shoulder in Peel on Thursday. Watch Bowserism get it in the neck in Vancouver today. Though there's ao particular manifestation of it Jiust yet, people in this countr>- have a lingering notion that "sometiiin"s goin' to drap" in Europe one of these days. We don't know Mr. Bruner, but we wo,uld imagine that it would not be safe.for him to travel Calgary streets ia daytime with the soldiers now In training there on the job. BRUNER GOT POOR RETURN FOR MONEY Though Fred Bruner, treasurer of the Licensed Victuallers' association of Saskatchewan, has named eight iJberaJ members of the Scott govem-jnent who, he claims, were bribed to oppose the prohibition measure passed by that government a year ago, people should not make a snap judgment on Bruner's evidence. Bruner claims that 110.000 was spent for the purpose mentioned. If he Is correct, he must he chagrined over the poor work accomplished by his ten thousand Iron dollars. Not a single member named voted against the measure. This will take some e.xplalnlng. . The road graft charges are much Jnore important, and for these a Royal Commission is being named. Until tiie findhig of the commission is hrought down, judgment should be reserved in this case also. The whole imbroglio seems to have been precipitated for party effect, and as such it should be considered until something more definite Is known. Old Kaiser Bill rehearsed the attack on Verdun before staging it. This is positively his last performance. The curtain is due to ring down any minute. Walter Ross found he wa.s too old to don khaki, and he couldn't get to the tranches without it. If he could have made the grade, no doubt he would have shown the Huns how an old plainsman could flghL the D. C. M. for display ot braveo". Hon. Lome A. Campbell, minister of mines; AV. W. Loteau.'c, and W. D. Willson. Liberal, were nominated for jthe itossland bye-election today. Miss Ina Haseltlne, of Minneapolis, earns about ?4Q0 a year profit from a small flower garden which she attends. Magistrate Klngsford of Toronto, fined James Ryan ?300 and costs for selling liquor witliout a license. He sold a bottle ol whisky to a soldier.

Kin'in, teller; James Mar-I tin, accountant, and Henry Young, �junior clerk, all members of the Royal Bank staff at CargiU, enlisted in the 130th Bruce Battalion. Lady Mary Hamilton, daughter of the Duke of Abercom, who was to have been one of the debutantes at court this year, is working in a munition factory in London.

Farmers in Southern Alberta have commenced to plough. Those who are not ready to plough are finishing up last yeat^'s threshing. It's one continual round of pleasure in the sunny south. .�yVAR GRAFT POLITICIAN QETS HIS QUIETUS ; There was nothing timid about the Voice raised by the electors of Peel on �frhursday against anything savoring of graft in war contracts in the Do-ininion of Canada. Conservatives as ivtrell as Liberals spoke out against the grafting politician who has wa.xed fat on war contracts at the expense of nils countrymen who are footing the hill. J. R. Fallis, the Conservative member for Peel, who was elected at the last general election hy a majority'of, 627, was told to stay at home With a^ majority of'335 against him. One ,thousand Conservatives went to the polls to say that they disapproved of Fallls' operations In buying up army remoutits'and selling them to eovernment;. buyers at an; advance of ?S per head. Even the fact that Fallls Had admitted his wrongdoing and Bent his $1800 profits to the Patriotic Kund did not save him from a stinging defeat. Peel county electors have spoken; the whole. Dominion .wOjUld speak ill the same manner had they' the opportunity; no,doubt the Dominion government will heed .the Itt-arnlng. The United States is nearer war than most people think. Kvents are moving swiftly at Washington and wUl hear watching, for the next few days. The temper of Uncle Sam is sorely tried; It Is just possible that be might fly off the handle and take poke at the Huns. NO APOLOGY, FOR ROAD BUILDING IN ALGEBTA President Lamb ot the Rural M�ni-Wpallties association, made the statement before the convention in Edmonton the other day that, since 1905, the province had spent $6,000,000 on roads ivpd bridges, and that many miles of those roads are now In the ditch.

The answer was, "This is a private car," and the accommodation for the ladies was refused.

Chairman Flavelle has .In former times justified himself as the mobillzer of sausages and cold storage eggs. Why, then, shouldn't he make a success of other high explosives like shrapnel and such? At all events the Imperial Munitions' Board alias the Shell Committee makes no secret of its abiding place. Its easy enough to track it to its lair. It seems to court publicity.
