THE PROGRESS OP THE WAR An unique agreement is said to bave been reached by the opposing political parties In Gonnnny in their strife over peace � conditions. It Is stated that the Russian program of no annexations nor Indemnities is to be accepted so far as the eastern front is concerned, but that the Utile German liillltary god, HIndenburg, is to hare full say as to annexations on the western front. � Such ad � agreement of course, could only mean one thing, so far as the allies are concerned, ftnd that is the greater necessity for ah overwhelming detent of the Germans on the western front. It Is doubtful, however," whether the Russian Bolshevik! would accept such an agree*' ment. * ' The Italians have inflicted heavy losses on the enemy, in the several encounters on the Italian front recent' ly. On'the western front tho Ger* mans made strong assaults on the French positions on-the Meuae, but-�were repulsed. PREMIER FOLLOWED THE Wt8E COURSE * The action ot Premier Stewart in appointing a commission'to enquire into the; working of the Factory Act will meet with.general approval, and the Herald believes he has made no mistake In naming - the men whose names were announced TQesday. Judge Carpenter as a member ot the public, ,uUlitles,.:l)oard, ,Ia^ closely in" touch with the general affairs of the province, and can bring to the com-mlssioh his judicial'experience. Deputy Attorney-General Browning Is the man in charge ot the adminlstratldn ot the act, and' should be in a position td guide the enquiry into the channels where most difficulty has liecn encountered in the working of the meas-ttj-e to date. Tho coinmiflsion should/ hear all ides of the question, from the standpoint of employersr^nd retail^ merchants, employees, and the general public, especially the farmerisl : The Herald' has no/doubt that the com-aiiasloQ, alter bearing all phases^of the. (juestioh; wUl be'able-to bring:ln re-: commendations Cthat wUi meet^ with gineratljapprpvaL that virtue, but will bo partners In Its [.glory, and so ansoclates In the future progress li'hlch Is to bo made. "For \ta must never forget, when we apeak of democracy, that It la riBt an accomplishment, it is not a thing that has b6en done, but It Is a progress; it Is a system of growth, and though today we might nchlevo what our limited vision proclaims to us as the democratic Ideal, Its quality Is such that when we stand on what now seems to us the highest peak of that range, thero will be greater heights to tempt and inspire us. And so. when this war Is over, and the crude medlevallam which at last brings the Haheniollerns and the Hapsbiirgs to confront their fate In tho young giant of the democratic spirit; when this contest Is over and the David of democracy has dealt with the Goliath of medievalism andnutoi cracv, therjD will still be work for David "to do worthy of his best effort?, and in the accomplishment ot It large benefits to the race still remain to be achieved. "It Is a wonderful story, the alignment of the nations which can truly bo called clvjUzed. against the ancient medievalism which survives In the heart of Europe. The hope ot mankind, 86 often frustrated, apparently Is now. to be accomplished. It could not be done In Napoleon's time. In spite of the French Revolution, and Its philosophy and Us promise, because of what Danton called 'The Allied Kings ot Europe.* It could not be don� In 1849 because of the Met-temlchs and the Blsmarcks. It could not he done In 1870 because they were still trlwmphant, but out of the west, out of thi? youngest and latest and most hopeful of the nations of the earth; out of this young giant, fashioned out of all the peoples, who originate la a new phlloslphy, little rivulets ot it have gone over to other peoples in other parts ot the world. "And now, in the fullness ot time, this giant is full grown, and she joins hMjds with other peoples, who. though olaer, are yet the children of her spirit, and we are partners now with great nations who have borne tor tliree years heroically the brunt of this gtrufegle, and at the end of It, out ot the noise of battle and smoke of the battlefield, there arises the picture of a hew fraternity of mankind .- the sons and daughters of civilization joining haWs to protect the sacred principles upon which the freedom of mankind rests. ....

Calgary will be invaded by between 3600 and 4006 farmers next week; And ]>thbridge is out of it simply because we haven't hotel accommodation enough to meet the demand of the everyday traffic. Why doesn't some hard-headed business.man build us a hotel and mako money? The value of the grains raised on this division of the C.P.R. last year was around $50,000,000."; The three prairie provinces raised grain valued at :�370,000,000. So Lethbrldge Is the centre, p( one-fifth the grain wealth of the west produced in 1917. That's a fact vifortb telling the world.- Alberta's Minister of Education Is planning to bring mfdical inspection to out rural schpols. They certainly require it as much as our city schools though the pupils there probably gel more fresh air and exercise than those In the city. But fresh air and exor-else don't ward oSt all allmonta.
