The Kiel Kennel hospital will he overcrowded. of the Dominical ot Canada. Tbe oooa-slon is unique tftr it c^stitutea the first time in the history of Lethbrldge that a minister ot militia haa visited the city, to wfaicb is to be added the more Bigniflcant fact, that it la the first time'a minister .of militia ha� ever visited Leyrhridge to inspect troops In tt&ining to flght the; hatUes ot the Bpipire.

Major General Hugbes was appointed to hifi present higii poaitlen b�o�taae of his aUeglanoe to the pnsent gav-emment, but we hepe and balieve that he has oast queations bf pajrty behind in the hour of trial, and that lie feels himself the representatlTe of tfl! the people at this time. It la true that he Is l>eing. criticised in ao^e circles on both sides of pontics/but thou^ criticism may be due, the Hier-ald feels that the present Is net the proper time to make It I-et u� iatli�r strengthen the minister's hands, so that he may be aible to conduot the arduous duties of his department in a manner -which vrtU Ijring gtery to Canada and all her ipeople. I�t us not rbe a people divided-a -united front ,with all thought of party advantage shoved into tite 'background is more befitting us at the present tine. . We welcome the (Major Gensnl to Lethbrldge. We -welcome him not only for the position he htrida, butrfor the enthusiasm he brings to bis task. And -when he goes from our mldat at the close of his short visit, we hope that he w^. fbe s-ble to be^ he found Iiethody should turn, out. toutght at Wesley auditoritmi to bear Can-ada^a'^aiiter of War..
