Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 6, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, par year. mill, per year.. by mill. per Offlce MHorial OIBee............ W. A. Buchsnall John T i Director Business ftght to other." in apt, and nta the "peaoo at any talk. Mtiud Firming Special, or the Democitration Train it is better known, In iu.tocv through Alberta, done' aa immense of good. Tho very fact that It stimulated a dozen or more boys to sign up ts take a course In tho Demonstration Schools proves iimt the trip worth while. Farmers are beginning to take more real in- terest la farming than ever before, and we believe it would be to the in- ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR When one carefully sizes up. the situation in the eastern theatre of war, the conviction grows that tte Russians are in a much better posi- tion than at first appeared after their extensive retreat from Lemberg. Des- patches yesterday indicated that through the fact of their being closer to their communication lines, their attacks were resuming strength and taking a- new lease of life, with the result that they are inflicting terrific losses on the ad- vancing Austrians and Germans wilh but little loss themselves. They W. drawing liie enemy farther and far- ther away from Ihelr base of supplies which means that when the time comes the Czar's forces will be able to turn upon them and inflict a ter- fcble and effective defeat. There is very little indication. of Conditions in the west.. The Germans appear lo have regained some ground lost -to the French, but aside from this there appears to be little change. i Very- little news comes through of the operations of the Italians, or of lighting in the Dardanelles: GETT1NO CLOSE TO HON. ROBERT The Toronto News that if the telegrams wanted by the Royal Com- mission in Manitoba were Destroyed the_ HOT, Robert, Rogers it not respon- sible. What are the facts? M. H. Macleod, general manager of the Canadian Northern Hallway, testified he secured the telegrams which pass- ed between Rogers, Roblin, Montague jni Simpson, from Great North Western Telegraph Company, at tie request of Edward Anderson, K.C. Anderson swore he secured the.tele- grams at the request of the Hon Hofcert Rogers. Surely that should mtUfy the News that Mr Rogers was responsible for the dwtmction of the telegrams. Edward Anderson one ,of Mr. Rogers' chief supporter! and was compelled to tell the absolute facts under oath ar a witness More than this, Hon Robert Hogers was a party to secure r. H Phippen, K.C, the chief counsel of the Canadian Northern Hallway, to defend Kelly, the contractor respon- sible fpr the Manitoba scandal. Why Mr Hogers tie'so interested in procuring a Canadian Northern Rail- way lawyer, who was supposed to de- TOte his whole time to the .Canadian Northern Railway, to defend the con tractor who is alleged to respon slble for the undoing of the Roblin government. It Is -well to keep in jnimd that Mr. Phippen was engaged to 'represent Kelly and not the late Manitoba government Mr. Rogers is not coming out of this enquiry un tainted. OUR POINT OF VIEW The_past few days of warm wea will suit all classes in tie com mmlty, the farmers and tha ice creftm vendors. "Welsh Brothers' circus has offered former Secretary Bryan for a ten minute speech daily for twelve Item. Now isnt it cruel to go and pu Jennings in the clown class There were easily a doien Firs ot July celebrations in the country tributary to Lethbndge At most o these gatherings patriotic speech' made and they were enthusias ifcally received Our citizens, aid old, are loyal to Canada and t tha Empire; there is no doubt aftou O.riana reigned M Tiiongh read out of the party he was iltowed the patronage up until th lut moment.

In the last, general electioi the onsen-alive party fought tooth and all against the Laurier government's lans for gaining wider market: for anada's agricultural products. Now ic announcement comes from Olla- a that the.Conservative government a commission "to inves- gate the question of increased agri- uliural production in the Dominion, jgether with the related questions f- wider markets, further employ- ment for the unemployed, etc." Evi- ently the thought is beginning to aunt the Borden. administration tat Laurier might have toeen right tier all. Conservative newspapers are horri- ed at the thought that Manitoba Lib- rals might have been in collusion with the late Roblin ministry. The overnment which they used1 to de- end, persistently is now consider- d by them so soiled in its reputation that any persons who might Save as- ociated themselves with it cannot, i. their judgment, avoid being soiled .jemselves. What'a change hus ccsie rer our-Conservative friends in re- cant .months? Up until the Commis- loo began to gather evidence they bsolutelr refused to pay the alight- sat' attention .to the charges made against the Boblin government hy the Jberals. 'Now that the government :down and out they cannot wallop too hard. .It is curious to.some of us to come in contact with the ideas and ideals f those who are now fighting for their different countries in Europe, ut some of the' aliens within our ates'baye strongly grasped the dif- erence between the conditions under which they 'left behind. In conver- sation'with an Austrian, a few days ago, i.e., an Austrian who does not want to go back, being fully satisfied with his lot in Canada, the subject ame up as to the possible emigra- ion alter .the war is over. Our friend eemed to think that there would be so: much to do .and so' much work to be had in the old countries, that all who could work would be so. fully em- fayed that perhaps the exodus from tarope would not he so very, eiten- sive at least'for" a time. "Yet" said le, "There is.plenty of .land in Aus- ria'that lets of small farmers but we are not allow- ed to have this land, it is held in big estates and is of no use for ag- ricultural Another thing, when we are over there we can only vote for the man we are told to vote if we do not vote for the rigfot man we 'cannot vote, at all." And men and women will fight and die to perpetuate jthis, such is the different point of view of different peoples. Said again our Austrian, 'In Russia it is different, the land is out up and is ibeing cut up and the people can work it. The land in Rus- sia belongs to the people." And at the start of the war the 'Russian was dabbed the barbarian and the other party had all the "knltor."

B.C., July, to The 310 aliens in.the detention camp here, are now .under military regulations, and Col.- McKay insists upon everything being con- ducted upon that principle. This morning some thirty of the interns were allowed to attend church under escort, and the men looked neat and clean, as they marched to the Holy Family church. One man was sent to the hospital yesterday, the first case needing such care since the men were interned. "B" Company of the 107th Regi ment took an exercise march this morning, under command of Lieut. Barnes. About fifty men from Fernie mot- ored to Michel last night to attend a smoker given there under the of the Patriotic society. Over- man Whitehouse of Michel occupied the chair, and speeches, were made by A. I. Fisher, Mr. Newnham of the Ledger and others. A boxing bout and wrestling match were sandwich- ed in between songs, recitations and speeches.

Comes Through Scathless Aside from the effects of tlie gases, Major Rdbsoii came through the "hell fire" mis flghtmg scsthless He hears' not a mark or scratch of any kind, though when one hears him tell of the 21 days of terrific battle which he and his men sustained, one real izes liow miraculous his escape has been. Sitting yesterday in the quiet a cool and darkened room, many thous- and miles from the fighting zone, go ing over all the scenes .of the 'battle- field, it must have appeared to Major Robson as vast-horrible night- mare from which he ihad just emerg- ed the endless days of the tense life of-the trenches, the- never-ceasing din of the cannon and the nervu-shat- termg, ear-splitting bursting of shells, sordid scenes of destruction and devastation, the hiiapb of human bodies piled high in the trenches or spread grotesquely over the ground n front of them, the little advances and retreats which only aggravated over-wrought nerves, the -parched :hroats and starved stomachs of the crawled 'back along "tlio trench to. one of the little huts -and l-iimd nir better in there. I passed the -word to the boys and they nil managed to r.reop into their huts and close them fight. Then, the wind changed and that is all that saved our lives, llalf hour more of the gas and there would been none of us "On (the '25th we made a charge and captured more German trenches. This was: the only charge I was in. We lost a lot of men. I found myself with i5o men holding a small treireii at the extreme top of tlio crescent. On our right were trenches held by more men .of the 6th, while on our left were the 3th ,aud farther down the side of the crescent was the wood where the 10th made their gallant charge and where Col. Boyle lost his life. Were. Isolated "We were isolated absolutely in our little trench. There was no com- munication trench and there was no telephone. There we were and we stayed, until it got loo hoi tor us. Just behind us was a hedge and far- ther back was what was known as the Bombarded crossroads. Two and a half miles back of us was "On the evening' of the 25th, attel we had held the trench all day undei the most terrific fire and violent at- tacks, I crawled out and Stack to- wards the hedge to see if there wasn't an avenue of retreat. I liadn t been out -half a minute before the German snipers were trying for me. "While wo are confident ot. only one 'outcome to this remarked the major, "the Germans are Just as confident. Their confidence, -however, Is born of absolute ignorance of tlie true atate of affairs. I talked to one Gorman oltlcer, a prisoner, who thought tho Germans were already in Paris. "1 have noticed a very curious thing and one which makes a follow think. In all the devastation that has tak'eu place in Belgium .and northern France, not one crucifix among the thousands- there, luis fallen. They are all still standing." Major ntibson is to .return to Eng- land in August, lie talks of the ter- rible days at Ypres almost with-a shudder, and tlie thought of the gases again sends the color from his face, but he is a dashing Canadian officer and he is eager to got back. He es- caped death through a miracle. He may be one of the unfortunates next time. But he is going ihack. He has :een his brother officers fall about him in battle, and has been through hat which saps the courage of many a brave soldier. But he is impatient be iback in the sound' of the big guns. He Is going to take another chance. Major Robson is a brother if Dick Hobson, 'formerly of this city. Bullets snapped around me and F.
