Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 9, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta Return of Lord Haldane to Cabinet Said to be Object London, July fl.-Thc official an- nouncement made by David Lloyd George on July 7th regarding Vis- count Haldane, ex-Lord Chancellor and Secretary of Vv'ar, and the ques- tion of the supply of munitions, has started a political sensation in the United kingdom of the first order, and it is being made the most of by the Nortliclifie press to prevent what is'declared to he an intrigue to get Lord Haldane back into the cabinet. Premier Asquilh's remarkable tribute to Viscount Haldane, which was'rcad at a meeting of the National Liberal 1 Club, July 5th, was regarded as FLG- viding the way for some attempt oE this kind. Although most people take the view that it is inadvisable during the progress of the war to have these persona! questions thresh- ed out publicly, a small body of poli- ticians is trying to force a parlia- mentary discussion. Sir Henry Dalziel, Liberal member for Kirkcafrtv, has given notice that he will ask Premier'Asquith in the House of Commons on Monday whe- ther Lord Haldanc's disclosures of proceedings of the confidential com- mittee of the cabinet were made with the Premier's authority, and it seems as though the government will hardly be able to avoid a public discussion. Jlr will be asked to grant one day for a.full discussion of caus- es responsible for the deficiency of munitions.- The-Dai'ly Chronicle says in soine- is 'rumored that if Major- qua Gcn cneral Stanley Von Donop, master- neral of ordinance, docs not resign, that does', gene David Lloyd George will, and if.. Major-General Von Donop Kield Marshal Kitchener ..also -will-go." v Tlie Daily News declares that more tan Liberal members of parlia- ment have signed a tribute to. .Lord Haldane for his past services which will be presented to him next week, and adds history of the 'quandom munitions committee', is obviously not' the proper subject for contro- versy. .It is a matter worthy', of note', however, that the chairman of the committee was neither Lord Hal- dane nor Mr. Lloyd George, but was Lord Kitchener." PREMIER BQRDEN IS SAFE Ottawa, Ont., July of the safe arrival of Sir Robert Burden In England, reached the government latt night from ag- ents of the White Star line.

It Is thought that here that the liner's entry of the war zone was delayed pur- posely, or that the ship made a detour in order to lessen the dan- ger from submarines. French Making Big Advances London, July clash' es have occurred the western battle line from the river Aisne to the Voages.. In the latter region the French claim a notable success. They report having re-taken trenches cap- tured by the Germans on June 22, and continued their advance until they had gained 700 yards along a 808- yard front. The German statement admits that hilltop trenches were de stroyed :by-the. French artillery'fire and evacuated. French' report having re-cap- tiired part of the trenches recently taken by the Germans between Fay enhae and the Petre forest, but concede the Germans', claim ad Vance-in the 'same neighborhood where heavy fighting has.been in pro- 'grsss-'fqr several days past.
