THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The annexationists in Germany are not having; it all their own way, though they are in. the majority. In many places demonstrations have taken place against this policy of annexations. Negotiations with Russia for peace are not proceeding very rapidly, and conditions in Russia itself Indicate toon another big upheaval ot the people-On the war fronts allied forces are recording small successes from dav to day. MOOSE JAW TAKES OVER PROPERTY Moose Jaw purposes taking over all property on which taxes hare not been paid, and once title is secured retain it permanently as a civic asset. In days to come as tie property becomes saleable, the city treasury -will benefit. Tne various farms -within th� limits will be leased in small parcels for agricultural or market garden purposes, and in this way a .revenue will be secured. In time it is hoped to have all the vacant land within the city limits under cultivation. How would that plan work in Lethbrtdge, Mr. Mayor and Commissioners? WESTERN CANADA IS NOT A SLACKER From the farms of the three prairie provinces the returns from wheat, oats, barley and flax for four months have amounted to $270,000,000. Tor the full year of 1917 the returns from livestock, wool, butter and cheese, potatoes, hay and roots have brought that total up to very nearly $364,000,-000. Several millions more have been derived from poultry and eggs. A country that can produce klood and wealth to that extent can't be called the tail end of the Dominion. In this war Western Canada supplies the men, the bread and the money, in greater proportion than any other action of the Dominion.- We're not boasting, we're Juat telling the truth -and we're only doing our duty at that. UNCLE SAME IS NOT A SIDESTEPPER . Uncle Sam can be an autocrat when tt Is necessary. That order about fuel will make a whole lot of manufac turera real mad, but a nation can't afford to allow Its people to freeze to death in order that manufacturers may operate their factories. The welfare of human life must be the primary consideration. The remedy will likely soon relieve the fuel famine and the factories will be at work again. The United States hasn't any weak kneed government. Wilson and his advisers possess courage and drastic legislation can be expected from them whenever necessary to combat problems that affect the welfare of the . people. CONSULTING WITH LABOR A SENSIBLE PLAN The new government at Ottawa Isn't botching things up. It is nut going to decide the farm labor problem or any other labor problem, with the advice of manufacturers and farmers, and employers of all kinds, as is the habit of some governments. It has called the labor men into consultation and asked for their views and assistance and co-operation. Great Britafii did the sauic thins all through the war, and it has had the loyal co-operation and aid of the labor men. Likewise in the United States, Woodrow Wilson summoned Samuel Gompers and other labor leaders to his counsels and there has been, as a result, genuine cooperation between labor and the government. The union government in Canada will find that it was wise in consulting with the labor leaders of the country. The more trust It places in them, the more it confers with them, the better it will be for the government and for the country. The labor men know labor conditions better than any other class and they can do much to solve the difficult labor problems that face the country just now. Canada'3 new government Is a sensible, democratic government. TOO MUCH SCOPE FOR A "CITY HALL RING" It Is understood that the ohiei objection the city commissioners have advanced to the preferential system of voting which they are proposing to abolish, is that In a three-cornered race, two candidates can sandwich the third, who may be leading on the first count, and thus defeat him. They Intimate also that the third man, who is the victim of this dark plot, is usually the city commissioner who is standing for re-election. The fact of the matter is that the removal. of the preferential balloting plan would be an invitation to form what might become a "City Hall Ring" for the perpetuation in office of the present commissioners. In a three-cornered fight particularly, the preferential ballot makes it a hard matter to control a majority ot all the votes cast, though It might be fairly easy to control sufficient votes under the old straight voting plan. The "squeese" works the other way under the old system. It is here that the machine has a chance to work. The Herald Is not imputing improper motives to the present city commissioners, but their past pronouncements on the preferential voting system, together with their action in asking for an amendment to the plan without a mandate from the electors, leaves them open to the charge that they are trying to manipulate the source of the electors' power to make it easier for them to be returned to office at the end of their terms. The Herald very much doubts if the people ot Lethbridge are willing to give up the power that is theirs under the preferential ballot IMPORTANT DECISION GIVEN BY JUDGE BECK Medicine Hat, Jan. 17.-Of more than ordinary interest from a legal standpoint waa the decision firm by Mr. Justice Beck yesterday afternoon in the case ot Jacob Lust varans Jacob Tschrltter. It appears that on Jan. 4, 1917, Lust sold a half section ot land to Tachritter for $6400 and In part payment took five lots in, Irvine. At the time of the sale Tschrttter was able to deliver title to only three of the lots. Subsequently, as Tschrltter was unable to deliver Immediate title to the lots. Lust asked Weidemar ot Irvine to get a note from Tschrltter tor $1600, the probable value of the two remaining lots. Weidemar got the note, but when the note fell due, Lust refused to take title for the two lots and sued for the $1600 with interest. Subsequently, Tschrltter again tendered title for the two lots but Lust held that by virtue of having received the note and not the titles of the lots before the expiration of the note that the deal for the lots was cancelled and that he was entitled to liquidation damages for the amount of tho note. The case -was tried yesterday In the Supreme Court before Mr. Justice Beck and he dismissed the action with cost stating as his reason* that the plaintiff should have served notice- on the defendant of his Intention to cancel the agreement and that time would have to be the essence of tho contract, both of which he found were lacking in the plaintiff's case. The defendant Tschrltter counter-claimed for the return of the note or In lieu thereof damages in the sum of $1632. The judge gave judgment on the counter-claim iu favor of the defendant. Three hundred tons of onions were seized at Vancouver. The owners must have been moved to tears. A pan of fat caused a $60,000 fire in Peterhoro. That was a costly instance of putting the "fat in the fire." The Warner rural municipality contributed $500 to the Halifax Relief Fund. That's a splendid example for other rural municipalities. Russia's ex-czar is at liberty. He had better watch out or the Bolsheviki will catch him and than his liberty may mean a head separated from a body. A New York man claims exemption from military service on the ground j that the making of baby carriages is | an essential industry. The young j fathers, who have to wheel the baby j out, disagree. They don't think it is an essential industry at any time. THE NEW ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE The most recent decorations from the king have been of the new order of the British Empire instituted last July. It follows the precedents of other similar orders and consists of five classes, and is awarded to both men and women for services rendered ,to the Empire at home or abroad. The first two classes, in the case of men carry the honor of knighthood, and In the case of women the privilege of prefixing the title "Dame" to their names. Sir Charles Gordon, of Montreal, was tho first Canadian to receive Jhe Knighthood ot the Order of Em-|ro in August last. The five classes kthe order for men, with the letters )ph the different members are en-to affix to their names, are: vta Grand Cross (G.B.E.), |is Commanders (K.B.E.), C'om-"b (C.B.E.), Officers (O.U.K.), i.mbers IM.B.E.J. The five !ir women are: � Dames Grand I.B.E.), Dames Commanders ' Commanders. (C.B.E.), Of-,B.E.J, and Members (M.B. A Sarnia man's pipe exploded. Detectives and tobacco manufacturers are investigating, but there is no word that the man has stopped smoking. A little blow up will not likely destroy the attraction for the weed-not even if it is loaded with dynamite. Somebody suggests Rufus Pope for Speaker of the Senate. Rufus would have an awful trouble being serious in the Speaker's chair. He is too young and sprightly to be buried in a job of that kind. Still if he gets the position, he may waken up some of the slumbering souls and put a little ginger in the Senate proceedings. The Union Government is going to cut off a lot of unnecessary expense in the departments at Ottawa. There is no better place to practice economy. There is a lot of waste there and the people will be glad to know that the government is fearless enough to put a stop to it. A party government of the old typo, wouldn't dare do it, they would be afraid of antagonizing friends who are looking for jobs and contracts. PUBLISH DETAILS OF , CAILLAUX PAPERS Rome, Jan. 16.-The Giornale D'-Italia continues to publish details of the documents found in the safe deposit box in a Florence hank -which had been rented by former Premier Caillaux. One of the documents is in the former premier's handwriting and gives a sketch of a proposed political program if he should again be called to become premier of France. It gives the names of senators, deputies and generals who would be called to collaborate in a ministry. Caillaux, the document shows, according to the newspaper, would begin by arresting President Poincare and all the recent political leaders, including former Premier Briand. Caillaux would appoint General Sarrail commander-in-chief. of the French army and would-bring to Paris two Coraican regiments ha considered friendly to him. The chamber of deputies, the Giornale D'ltalia says, would be compelled to approve a bill giving Caillaux absolute power. He then would dissolve the senate and the chamber and France would make a great effort to obtain a military success, after which a popular referendum on a peace treaty would be taken. A new regime, the document shows, would be instituted in France, limiting the powers of the senate and chamber, but preserving the republican form of government. Copies of the documents, the Giornale D'ltalia says, were sent to Captain Bouchardon, head of the investigating committee, who decided to arrest Caillaux. Another Arrest Paris, Jan. 16.-Louis Lous ta lot, member of the French chamber from Landes, whose immunity recently was suspended in connection with the Caillaux case, was arrested this morning.

TROOPS SUBJECT OF A REPORT Washington, Jan. 17. - The first weekly health report for the American expeditionary forces In France with comparative figures as to all troops in the United States was published yesterday.
