Tho new spirit of tho reople of the German empire is giving rise to a movement that is driving straight toward democratization and some look upon the success of this movement as the only thing that will bring about the lasting peace sought by the rest of the world. The most extensive air raid yet attempted on England was carried out over London Saturday by a fleet of 20 German airplanes, which did considerable damage in the metropolitan area. In reprisal for this, the French yesterday undertook a raid over German territory which was more ambitious than anything yet carried out. Over SO planes took part and raided several towns and did damage to the Krupp Works at Essen. "THIS IS MERELY A MATTER OF DUTY. Calgary Auto club will bo in Leth-Taridge tomorrow evening with about 250 people in the party. They will remain all night. The lack of hotel accommodation in Lethbridge is emphasized by the fact that we have no place to put the visitors. It is very nice for them to see for themselves that Lethbridge is so busy that ordinary everyday travel keeps our hotels filled up, but that isn't going to help us do our duty as hosts and find sleeping quarters for our visitors. There is only one thing to do. The Lethbridge Auto club, with the help of the city council, the board of trade, and private citizens, must organize to meet the contingency. Private residences must be thrown open to the visitors. Probably if we take good care of them this time, they might help in the agitation to get another hotel here. Let us enlist their sympathy at any rate. cerity of his opinions when it. says: j The political perplexities today: have their origin nininly in the general election of 1911. Two distinct campaigns �were, waged by the enemies of the Lnnrler government. | The Kiiglish-speaking provinces heard j only tho loyalty cry, which took the j place of economic argument against I tho trade ngreoment with the United States, nut reciprocity was not made an issue by the government's opponents in French-speaking Canada. Mr. Bourassa found in the Naval Service Act a weapon more to his liking, and an opportunity to indulge his. inveterate hatred of Sir Wilfrid Laurier as the chief impediment to his own ambitions, and to the Nationalist movement. To profit by the situation in Quebec. Conservative leaders betray- ; ed the Canadian navy policy. Kxccpt I in the constituencies where the Kim- | lish votes were in the majority or held the balance of power, the Conservative party in that province merged itself entirely in the Nationalist propaganda. It followed Mr. BourasKa's leadership, and nbet'ed ills attempt? to inflame race reeling and I sow hatred of British connection. | Few Knglish-.speaklng Canadians j have an adequate conception of the | malice and fury of the attack? upon tho Liberal leader in his own pro-1 vliice. The Bourassas. the lllondins. | and the Sevlgnys played artfully upon I the fears and credulity of a simple j pastoral people. The habitant was told that his sons would be dragged from the plough by Laurier'* minions and forced to serve on British warships, perhaps to be disemboweled by German cannon. The cry of conscription hurled at the Naval Service Act was repelled by Sir Wilfrid Laurier with absolute sincerity. It is therefore, not r. new issue in Quebec, as in the English provinces. Sir Wilfrid Laurier has had to face it before. In estimating his present attitude, it is but simple justice to recall the assurances ho gave his compatriots when lie was commending them a great measure of co-operation with the mother country in naval defence. Ho feels, no doubt, that his honor was pledged in that campaign, and that he must escape the reproach of inconsistency if he Is to maintain the personal authority which ho hopes to exercise- for national unity in the future as in the past.

As the automobile centre of South era Alberta, Lethbridge isn't proving much of a guiding light in the way of automobile club activity. We - understand there are about 70 members of the club and there must be B00 auto owners in the city. Whether auto owners just don't care, whether they think the alms of the Auto club Will serve no purpose, or whether they are all too prosperous to give their time and money to help along a good, work, The Herald could not ay. But we do know that in the hard times in 1914, the people of Lethbridge were only too glad to extend the hand of welcome to the people of the district in order to link them up With Lethbridge. And we do know adso that nothing has ever linked Lethbridge up with the surrounding district as the automobile has. Good road*, well kept and well posted, are necessary to give the automobile the chance to do, its work well. That's �where the Auto club comes in. That's the material, side of its objects. Of the social side nothing need be said. But we do say, unhesitatingly that Lethbridge must lead in auto club activity. If" we fail to lead, some other town -will annex our rightful place as tho trade centre of the south. Let us have an Auto club with 500 members, and then we can do some real work. Would it be worth while for the city to fix up a ball park, tennis courts, etc., at Henderson park? The golfers seem to be patronizing the street railway. How about extending the idea? ALLOWS MORE BEER THE ATTITUDE OF 8IR WILFRID LAURIER. While The Herald cannot agree, � with the stand taken by Sir Wilfrid Laurier on tho conscription issue, nevertheless wo bespeak for him a fair-minded hearing from the people bf Canada. Bitter'recriminations will accomplish nothing. Rather should we try to get his viewpoint that we may understand the problem of Quebec. The Toronto Globe left no doubt of its stand on conscription in op position to Sir Wilfrid, but nevortue-i�8S it expresses its belief in the sin- London, July 5.-Andrew Boiar-Law, chancellor of the exchequer, announced in the house of commons today that tho government had decided to permit the brewing during tho quarter ending September 30 next, of an additional amount of beer not exceeding thirty-three and one-third per cent, of the amount allowed for that quarter. This action, he said, was taken owing to tho greater consumption during the summer months, and the difficulties caused by shortages in large centres of population and in counties where crops are being harvested. 63,222 GERMAN PRISONERS TAKEN. Paris, July 9.-- From April 15 to June 30 tho Franco-British troops on the western front captured 03,222 prisoners, Including 1,278 officers, says an official summary of the operations issude today.
