T -* PICKED UPJNj* PASSING 'f^THE BUSY MAN THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR, A new offensive is believed to be under consideration by the Germaaa and Austrians against the Itallins. It Is reported that large concentrations are taking pir.ce There Is little activity at present  on the western front. The probability of Russia again be-. coming a factor In tlie war on the allied aide, or at least as a sufficient menace to Germany to keep a large ; German army busy, is now looming I up. The assassination of the Gor-! man minister to Russia may be the spark to the powder of another revolution, this time against the ruthless German invader. THE REGENT B.C. BYE-ELECTION. The recent election of a returned soldier in Victoria over the Liberal, ConDcrratlve and Socialist candidates by a two to one vote causes the Vancouver World to remark that the election of Mr. Giolma is significant. It ought to prove (for It Is not an isolated case) the utier futility of the ordinary party appeal. The partizan arguments may be time-honored, but they are woefully time-worn. The great organization built up by Mr. Bowser has vanished overnight with his fall from power. Etbu the prestige of being in the saddle is powerless to help the Liberals, who have losl every bye-election where the people 'had a chance to make a selection outside party affiliations. This was inevitable. For years the party leaders in British Columbia harped on old shibboleths when the aspirations and purposes of the people �were seeking more intelligent leadership and expression. It required but the clarifying Influences of a great �war, -n-ith its tragedies "and problems to complete the Impatience of the electors with the petty methods and materialistic appeals which passed so long tn this province for high politics. Asd -wltli the extension of the franchise to �women the old alignments eeems to have been entirely Tiped out There need be no fear of the outcome, continiieii The World. The returned^ soldier Ifi a citizen, with new, and perhaps too many, novel ido?.s on many things. In leglslatdon he may be Tad leal, perhaps extreme. But some fundamentals he has grasped firmly, and the men who have risked their lives, and hiTo broken their bodies to deifend th!a la�id may be safely trusted not to endanger that for v.-hlch they suffered so much by destructive courses In Parliament. In any event tliey can s.carcely make more ghastly failures than some of our profes-�ional politicians. ARE WE MISSINO OPPORTUNITIES? Can It �'bo that �we in Lefthbrldge, after a period when we were �willing to spend $6,000 a year for the servlcof of an expert to secure for us new Industries, are now swinging too far to the other extreme and overlooking portimltlee In 'this direction -which Vifi should grasp? We ask this question because of a Mat yi� have received that, had the ilty put forth any effort at all, the Itnperlal Oil Co. �would have chosen Lethbridge Instead of Sweeb Grass as tbe location of the million gallon tankage to be erected In the southern part of the province for the storing Of a BirffJclent supply of oil to meet the demand. Lothbrldge Is not very far from Sweet Grass and trainloads of tank c�T> can 'be cleared here just as �well as alt Sweet Grass. Qesldes we have immeneely bettor; railway facllies, Which vk-ould have been a big.factor In our favor. And being fight ia the middle of the market for the oomthot 4lty, we would have fceen in 'a better pooltJon �wheb: e^^dsloHs are oontem plated than Sweet..(i^rass cai) ever be It to dUite .within Sb'e bounds of i^s- WHERE WILL U.S. SOLDIERS "BLIGHTY"? Where arc the soldiort' of X'ncle Snni Koiiig to have their "blighty"? Witli a million of them tn France, of whom a quarter of a million are now in the tighllns llnc-3. the question Is one which is cau-^lng some thought across tJio line and across tho water. For "blighty" hns ooiuo to mean sonic- | thing to a soUiler. It means iionio I and rest to tlic Tommy and the I'oliu. and oven to Canadian soldiers, though they are thousands of mile.^ from home, it means something tor Great Britain is mother to them, and either j they, or some of their close pals, havo | homes or relatives in tho Itrltlsh Isles to whom they can go when it comes �blighty" to them. Rut tho American .soldier is in a different fix. wniat's to be done with him to cheer him up in "blighty." The Boston Transcript has been thinking c.bout it and is ready to accept a suggestion put forward by the mayor of Worcester, England. Here's what it says: The Mayor of Worcester, England. His Honor-perhaps we should call him � His Worship-Arthur Carlton, has come forward in the English press with a suggestion of international Interest. It is that English. Scotch and Irish cities should "adopt" American cities for the purpose of affording hospitality and Assistance to American soldiers who are over on the other Bide, either in the field or sojourning In the Bri'Ush Isles. For one thing, according to Mayor Carlton's proposition, the adopting city would become responsible for tho care or entertainment during the con\'Tilescence of all sick men from the particular town or ctty which It had taken under its wing. If a man, for Instance, from Worcester, Mass., were conralesclng In England, he would naturally go to Worcester, England, which would be tho adopting city in that case, and there he would hospitably and cheerfully bo passed from hand to hand and from house to house. It would, according to Mr. Carlton, be a pledge of relationship, or, as he says, would "mako Anglo-American brotherhood something more than a figure of after-dinner speech." Our boys in the service might well hope that some such plan may be carried out. They see the Tommies dodging back to "blighty" for a week or more to rest or recuperate, and the poilus going home to all parts of France on "permission." Some of the Americans, to be sure, are f urloughed to Aix-les-Balns-thou^ many of those who have been longest in France have never had any furlough at all. But -when they go to Aix they find their welcome professional and perfunctory, or at the best official, it is not like going home. Yet the Englishman and the Frenchman go home. It Is an advantage 'that they possess through propinquity. What a blessing if the American soldiers, like John Dowey In the play, could find a cordial adopted home in "blighty"! As the English feel very cordial towards us, it Is quite po?aible that the Worcester plan will be carried out. Mayor Carlton, besides mentioning the name of his own town in connection -with Worcester, Macs., names the two Bostons, the two Bxetersi, the two Baths, the two New Havens, the two Portlands, the two Bangors, and so on. This adoption of towns of the same name may be ai\,excellent plan in some oaBes, but it would prove embarrassing in others. Worcester in England might conceivably adopt Worcester in Massachusetts, which has little more than double its own population; but could little Boston In Lincoljishlre take care of Boston In MassachusettB, or the small cathedral town of York entertain all who �might stray within its gates not only from New York but ifrom all the Yorks and Yorktowns of the forty-eight States? On the other hand, mighty London would be but WIghtly taxed- In the entertainment of New London, Conn. Mr. Carlton hlmeelf augges^ts that a balance would have ito be found An this matter; that London would have to adopt New York, Manchester Chicago, Liverpool Philadelphia, and Sheffield Pittsburgh-an assignment evidently based on a supposed similarity of sympathy in cities of similar induatrles. But there would really bo a reason for ithe matching of Bnglish cities �with those of the same name In New Ehigland, at least, for many of our towns wore settled by people from the town of 'the same name in Old England, and tho Identical patronymics, betraying old relationship, are found in both. At all events there Is distinctly a brotherly suggestion in tho idea of the Mayor of Worcester, and thousands of Americans besides those of the flourishing city �which is the heart of our Common wealth will thank him for it. Robert F. Hay. woll known business man of Winnipeg, is dead. Major J. Beam, of Sandy Covo, Out-Is believed to have been lost on Lake Slmcoo in a gale. n. C.
