TjVe have passed through dark days and must expect more of them in the fortunes of war, but men of our Empire's race and blood, were never quitters, and history records that they were never more determined, never more resolute, than they are when fighting f - - the deeds of- valour unexcelled on tory's pages will oft be proudly narrated, and will be our exultation and and crown of rejoicing. The complete success of the Victory Loan has shown in an unmistakable manner that Canada has her heart in the work of winning the war, and it Is a matter of great satisfaction to me to know that this province gave its quota gladly. I know the people of Alberta will join with me in expressing their sincere sympathy with the people of Halifax and Dartmouth at the awful catastrophe which has befallen them. It would not be out of place if I were to again remind you of the necessity laid upon each of us who remain behind to make our best efforts tor personal economy and sacrifice, both in food and in money, that we may be the better able to assist our forces and to back up the call when Canada claims our financial help. In conclusion, weighing up the whole of the situation, let us rejoice that not one square inch, of British territory is now occupied by the enemy and that there are unmistakable proofs that when, our great ally to the south is ready to join us in the great united blow, there is no question that the result will be glorious victory culminating In the abiding peace of the world.

EXCURSIONS Dec, Jan Feb, Ask Ticket Agent, ert. Washington, Dec. 31.-Immediate action by the railroads to relieve the critical coal shortage, particularly in New England and other sections suffering from the cold wave, was being considered today by Director General McAdoo and members of the railroad war board. As the result of a conference with the director general yesterday, heads of agencies aiding in government operation of the rafiroads were ready with plans designed to bring about a speedy movement of fuel into the affected areas. Greater use of the water routes into New England from Hampton Roads probably will be made. /In addition to affecting a freer movement of-coal the settlement of labor questions will be one of the chief railroad problems to be dealt with by the director general. Heads of the railroad brotherhoods who conferred with President Wilson recently have been summoned to confer with the director general. Thursday, regarding relations of labor and the new government railroad administration. While settlement of the brotherhood's demands for forty per cent, increase in wages is not looked for at this time officials believe the government soon will consider favorably a plan for better pay. v Legislation for guaranteeing com- warm hereafter. Our Guests The toast to Our Guests was very well proposed by President I.ohgworth of the Veterans who Bald that it always gave the Veterans pleasure to 'welcome visitors, and that they now had a regular visiting day and would be glad to see anybody. He thanked the public of Lethbrldge for their support of the club. He made the proud boast that Lethbrldge had one of the finest Veteran's clubs and including some of the finest men In Canada. /Much credit was due to the late officers of the club for their organization work. Mayor Hardie responded to this toast, and said It w,as an honor to be the guests of the Veterans. -. Nothing i that could be said or done could in any .way express the great debt of gratitude that the people owed to these men who had;suffered' for the cause. The people woul^ never fully realize what-tliey had done. His ^worship paid a great tribute to the mothers and wives Of the country who had so bravely given up their sons' and husbands for the service. / Those Who Support the Boys W. A.

Thou to our bruve soldier boys who had offered and wore still offering daily thoir all-their lives-in defence of our homes and hearth stones, and each mother, wife and sister whoso lonely lives at homo with their toll and sacrifice were also highly heroic. A fine patriotic quartette was then given by Messrs. J. P. Lnyne. Jno. L. Smith, A. B. Cure and W. T. Meridew. Capt. May Speaks. Capt. Den. H. May, who left here with the 13th O.M.R., and was transferred to the Strathcona Horse, whose services have brought them in action on many 'occasions, gave a brief but characteristic soldier's speech, telling of but few of the difficulties and moro of tho brighter sides ot the trying life of the boys at the front. Though not on the printed program, Mr, Vernon Coombs very, kindly responded with a soldier's parod,y on "Rock Me to Sleep." His effort was one of the best vocal members given. With his characteristic vigor, Mr. Martin Woolf spoke to the topic "Our Nation," showing that it was the character of its people that made any nation great and in this vast world struggle no nation for its numbers had done more than Canada save Belgium, France and Britrfln. Canada's people had recently spoken unmistakably and It was for every man. woman and child to do not their bit, but their level best for the winning of this war. Miss Nelson of Lethbridge, accompanied by Miss Pickup then gave a very pleasing vocal solo. An original comic sketch by Mr. Z. W. Jacobs served to bring out many good humorous sal Pies as the gathering of the old 13th men at a Shorn-cliffe banquet was depicted. "'Our Ain Folk" was sung with much feeling by Miss Annie Walker, while Mrs. V. V. Christie gave a patriotic reading concerning the R. W. M. P., in a manner to amuse the fervor of all old timers who know of the valor of the riders of the plains. The little Misses Jess en closed the program with their piano duett, splendidly given, and the audteuce sang vigorously, "God Save Our King and Men." v Dancing was then, indulged in by all those wishing to participate and thus in friendly mingling and timely tripping will most of Cardston's people do honor to the boys while 1917 merges into 1918. To the mayor and council and Mr. S. S. Newton with Mrs. Fred Best, the committee lh charge, ps well as Principal J. W.
