Aooeptr ace of papers tJto.: explratifao date it our authority to continue the sub-icrlpUoo. sundry Ssf't going to make a contented peoi)le who will put their heart and soul ilnto Trtnnlng tho wnr.  At tho same time tho Herald wouUl like to point out that Ihero Is no excuse for Ignorance about thte particular opderJln-coiincU. Tho Govomniont has advertised its provisions -widoly, and tho press has published colilnms ot deiails telling pooplo what they must do. Thoao who are too lary or too indifferent to inforih themselves and provide themselves -n-iith tho necessary papers should have no protest to mako it they are checked up. The only exception wo take Is to tho methods used whereby tho people who have the papers but who have made tho simple mistake ot not carrying them "every time they appear on tlio etreet are arrested and fined. It those people were given an hour to go and got their papers and report to the police, or If they were taken before the magistrate and warned It would serve the purpose, and they would not go away with the Idea that German police methods have already been Introduced into C5anada. THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. a definite policy ot aid to -Russia has hoen adopted by the United States and the allies and will ha announced soon, it is reported today that a new Siberian government has been formed, and that Siberia has definitely so-coded from the Bolshevik control. There is comparative quiet on the western front at the present time, save occasional raids on both sides. THE GREAT GERMAN ILLUSION. One of the illusions most sedulously cultivated in Germany has been that "after the war" there would be a return to the economic status quo, and that "business as ireual" would go merrily on. This illusion, says the London Times, has now begun to lose ite charm. Though the Allies have been lax in working out their future economic relationship, there Is a broad understanding among them that Germany and her vassals shall enjoy no access to Allied raw materials, no '.'"freedom" of the maritime highways of the world, no iritteroourse wi|h civilized humanity, unless and until �Germany shows herself fit for admls-:,sion into such a League of Nations as �the Allies contemplate. There Is nO' ,::pos6lbillty of an economic status quo ante helium. As pointed out last September, in deaUng with Herr Naumann's "Central* Europ*" schetne, Germany fears the economic weapon, not because she may be forced to offer a price for its removal, but because it la capable of destroying the foundations upon which her whole system Of military domination,' fiscal terror-Ism, and commercial penetration was bised. , No" compromise is possible with such a system. The German people need to ander^ stand two main truths. The first ds that while the Allied conception of a League of Nations contemplates ul; timately the inclusion in it of a regenerate Germany, it contemplatea also the maintenance of an absolute economic ban upon Germany and her vassals until they have relinquished Clearly and convincingly, their pre-^ sent ipolitlcal and military institutions ani the dreams that still inspire theni. The that the longer the war lasts the-deeper will he the detestation of everything German in Allied countries and the heavier the moral' and economic handicap under wWch all Germans -vriU labor, even If tliey quality for readmlsslon into the society of civilized peoples. I* 11 THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE NEW O.KDER. Though it is true enough that Ignorance of the law is no excuse, it would appear from reports of the ac-tivWes of those who are enforcing the recent orden-ln-councll respecting ' the carrying of certificates of proof ot age or marriage and the recently issued registration certificates, that they are at times rather too drastic to he within the realm ' of common Bpijso, whkh, after all. Is what law is supposed to he. ".�H U ttatod that tho other evening p gentleman in North Lethbridge ^hlle enjoying the,.cool of the evening tbok a stroll up the street. He was going nowhere In particular and might 4tilte as well have strolled into his Dwn yard. Bue because he was in a publlo Place and was not carrying Ivis papers it'cost him jn.SO on his be^ jng arrested. This may be quite "with-Jf� the law" Tjut is it horso sense? , People in Germany who have lived In t^ar of the law all their lives would' Dot make Buch a mistake as the man ID tbia particular case did, but Anglo ^xona tauve heen accustomed t( ipmewhat more freedom, who obey '^e'�pliilt of the law rather than the jitier ot-the law are liable to anako i mifitaka in petty mattera of this , � ;; , . . , : Where the ftuthorlties-find men deP, 'ilje^atoly" ondeavoring to evade the jing out. The appointment u-as made by the civil service commission and seniority, not politics, ruled. The appointment of a postmaster at Lethhridge will also fall to the civil service commission. The office has been advertised, and once more poll-tics will not rule. Such a change is heartily welcomed by the rank and tile of Canadian electors, and, we truly believe, by most of the politicians themselves. This great change in Canada's political lite is commented on by the Christian Science Monitor under tho caption "The Spoils System in Canada": For some time now, tho parliamentary bin for civil service reform in Canada, designed to put an end to the spoils system has exploited In appointments to the public service, has bean before the Ottawa Hou^ ot Commons. Its sponsor is the Hon. A. K. Maclean, Acting Minister ot Finance, and the fimdamenta) pui-poses of the measure have practically the universal approval of the Dominion press. The bill has made slow hut sure progrere, and.}ts. ultimate success Is assured. Baat and: West are more or less "united In ife favor. It is notable that the �influence "of the West, -with its wholesome stimulus from the -wide prairies,-is growing in parliament, and gradually sweeping away the prejudices, intolerances and self-seeking which characterize much ot the pro-fess-foual politics ot the East. The determination of Canada to pursue the proposed reforms^to a successful issue, however, arises indirectly out ot the war. The war demands national efficiency and universal co-operation, irrespective of party. The Borden administration is a union government, and the union government is a war government. That Sir Rohert Borden should have declared, during his last election campaign, that the government had absolutely abolished patronage, and that preferment In the civil service would come by merit and fitness, and not by party service, is due primarily to the fact that he could speak as a leader who had shared the government of the country with men of the opiwsite views in politics. Now the spoils system, as it has arisen both in the United Slates, and in Canada, and as it has arisen in Great Britain through the sale ot honors to men who had liberally contributed to party funds, is in essence antl-patrlotlc. The bias ot prescriptive party views In the civil service and of active affiliation of civil servants with.the managers ot politics Is, almost inevitably, a hindrance to the proper doing of public business. In the BpollB system, as It first arose, men placed in office under it found themselves called upon to pay political ae-sessmonts on their salaries to their patrons, the funds thus collected going toward meeting tho expenses ot political parties and prominent politicians. From that stage to the next, ot maktag salaries excessive that they might bear heavy assessments, was natural. The system turned offices into perquisites, tens of thousands ot oifficials into servile partisans, and raadeof their salaries the -source of a vast corruptiOtt fund for the purpose of carrying elections.. Tiie' Canadian hill is an example of praitieal' paff'lotfsm la war time,' tlie effect 'of'-wiii'ch' lias 'beon profound. Mudli-'that once' was considered "good I>oHlios" IjuK which cohaisted chie'dy of party bickerings and narrowness, ot provincialism and bigotry, Is grad u,ally falling Into disfavor. Party shib-hOldths and political expediencies are np longer ot vital concern betorethe new and larger vision, the broader concept ot the higli purpose ot parliament in tho public life.

Considerably anxiety is being felt on the part of officials ot the provln-cial department of agriculture because ot a threatened invasion ot Saskatchewan by western thistle from Montana.
