THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR ffet tlie hitcli-in the-peace negotr jatio^. between^Russia and Germany j administration of our provincial at �Wil'r result in the resumption of hos- ' object to the new ruling. Now, when-ever he wishes tho clfy to make a capital ekpendltnVe he must run the gamut of three sets of critics. First the ratepayers have their say, then the provincial utilities board, and finally | the Dominion government. If-the need j for the expenditure gets by all these , juries, then the city will get a fairly good price for the bonds, for investors will bo satisfied that there is nothing foolish about the undertaking. And the mayor will be relieved of a lot of responsibility by the new triple-plated process. The Herald Ifelleves the financial men of the Dominion will receive the new order without a murmur. , It will help to keep Canada's credit good, and that more than anything else is what we will need after the war. The Que-bee attitude that the government has no right to limit provincial borrowings is typical of Quebec. It shows how little ^the people of that province realize that Canada's first concern is the war rather than the construction of new highways and public buildings.

SOLVING THE [QUEBEC PROBLEM R, A. Drapeau, ICC, a French-Ca-radian Conservative, strongly in favor I 'of Union government has been speak-ihg very plainly about the mistakes imade in the past In connection with /the direction of the war as it concern-Jed. Quebec. While a Conservative and !a supporter of the- late government he does not think the Quebec situation ;was handled tactfully . He has little, faith in the two defeated Minis-.'te'rs; Sevigny and Bloadin, and feels, . fthei? kre better out of the Cabinet/ be-,i^.uiie of their Nationalist connections, in 191L and the electors had lost faith .ffi"them..' Mr. Drapeau further believes, :that xSitf. Robert ;Bordea last summer should:have invited into the Cabinet ]Ho'n.v Pierre Bvariste Le Blanc,r the ; tieutenant-Governor of Quebec, ,*" and ;^lr.. Joseph L. Perron, K.C., the partner bf Sir Lomer Gouin. The former, "Jrtrl "Brapeau explains, expressed to too, and the province must fhuainess in that proyince^iH^e,final. Iy decided by *a test case, before the employ experts to direct the treat-1 nient of the nervous disease of our soldiers brought about by war ser-vice.'/It'is the business of the state to give special care-to this class of sol- j � dier. We must not leave them de-pendept.upon their own resources for treatment;-1 if we do, many of them - - f.- s.T, * * will never be treated and they later on may become charges upon the* public. It is our duty to give them every opportunity to get rid of their trou-bles and restore them to the place they occupied in the community prior to the war. There has been much plain speaking of late about what are commonly called private diseases. The spread of these diseases is a menace to the race and' Alberta might very well engage an authority to cope wit� this problem ;4t'should not be left to individuals or organizations, but ought ,to become at: once the responsibility of the state.
