The Herald has remarked before that our city commissioners aro too thiiiskinned where criticism is concerned. We repeat the statement. Mayor Hardie's letter in yesterday's issue in which he charged that malice prompted the statement by Tito Herald that the new American I*aKranco lire engine stalled for several minutes at the subway in a North Lethbridgo tire on Saturday is a very good indication of the manner In which the commissioners meet criticism. In i this particular case it was not editorial criticism. It was a statement of fact as a part of a news story. But Mayor liardie felt himself in duty bound to look for an ulterior motive behind a statement which might or might not be considered reflecting on a city department under his control, and the only conclusion ho could arrive at was that someone was trying to take upfair advantage of him for some underhand purpose. Tho matter is a petty one but it serves to show the attitude of the. commissioners. Whether they think lie King can do <* PICKED UP W<* PASSING *oR TE *vsY MAN THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Later reports filtering through neutral channels indicate that the dam-ngo done to Krupp's by the big French air raid was much more extensive than even the French took credit for. i along the line that A quarter of the great plant is said ] no wrong" wc do not know, but it to have been destroyed, and many workmen killed. As a result munition work has halted to a considerable extent. It is apparent, that notwithstanding this success, British opinion which has been once more roused over the German attack on London will not this time be so easily allayed. The daring and Impudence exhibited by tho raiders to use the vernacular of the streets "got the goat" of the English people, and the criticism of the government, is bitter. The great Russian offensive continues with ever-increasing success, and Halicz, the key to Lemberg, will fall shortly, and the way to Lember will be open. STILL MORE LIGHT IS NEEDED. People might have been satisfied with Gilmore's explanation of the cost of bread in Lethbridge had not figures been available at the same time to show that the retail price of bread today is 25 per cent, higher in Lethbridge than in Edmonton. The housewife pays $1.00 for 240 ounces of bread in Edmonton. She 'lay* ?1.00 for 192 ounces in Leth-hridge. Why the vast difference? Is it that the price of flour and labor is higher in Lethbridge? If not then the Edmonton bakers must be selling very eioDc i" tUc cczt line. We cannot believe that they are doing business for the fun of the game. Lethbridge's bread prices still need Borne explaining. would appear that way. Commissioner Freeman's sign board at Henderson Park lake is another case in point. We judge that the commissioner thinks The Herald is persecuting him in this -particular matter. As a matter of fact wo are simply pointing out to him the the general attitude of the people of the city in tho hope that a mistako will bo remedied. That is a newspaper's duty. Surely the commissioners recognize that the ratepayers have every bit as much interest in the welfare of the city as they themselves have. If they do they will realize that criticism does not necessarily imply that someone is trying to take undue advantage of them. Take a holiday during the summer. You will work more efficiently as a result. The Golden Fleece-Southern Alberta sheep ranchers have them by the thousands this year. Lieut. Stewart MacCulloch, who was wounded at VImy lildge, has returned to Edmonton. The Toronto Humane society collected $7,000 by tho sale of tags, for tlie carrying on of their work.

Flynn was 22 years old and left last April for the front, where he passed one hundred per cent., in tho aviation test. "On agin; off agin," is the fate of China's boy king. He didn't make a howling success of the king job. The Russians seem to keep ham mering steadily away at tho east front. Maybe we'll be able to talk ot the steam roller again soon. French reprisals for German air raids are most pretentious and may help to bring the Huns to a realiza tion of the rights of non-combatants. KIND WORDS FOR LOCAL MEMBER. Kind words for the Dominion mem-l)er from Medicine Hat have appeared in both sections of the press as a result of his stand on conscription. The following appeared in yesterday's Morning Albertan under the caption "An Able Member": Alberta Is well represented In the house of commons by able and istrong members. Dr. Clark is perhaps tho foremost debater In the house of commons, and one of the most forceful speakers in Canada.

Mr. Buchanan is Does anyone In Alberta know the truth of the farm labor situation? Isn't it about time that It was being made somebody's business. Six week's from now harvest will he starting.

Canadian Army Headquarters Franco, July 10.-On this front, an outstanding U10cially around Avion and Lievin BETTER PROTECTION AT HENDERSON LAKE. Monday's sad drowning at Henderson Park lake, luckily the second only since tho park was established, should serve to convince the city commissioners that better protection should be afforded the public which It seeks to attract to the lake as the city's chief resort. How better protection can be afforded we do not know, but an investigation of conditions should show the commissioners the way. It would be possible, as suggested by the coroner's jury, to define dangerous areas. More life saving apparatus readily available might also be supplied. It is true that the city has no money to squander, but where lite la concerned, money is not of such Importance. Th� purpose ot the city Is to mako Henderson lako popular that people may be attracted to It, and tho treat cam benefit.

Our infantry patrols penetrato tho area of ruined houses immediately ahead and occasionally blow up a house in which Germans are bclioved to be sheltered, but the greater part. of tho task at tho present falls to the guns.

Many direct hits on gun pits were noted anil practically every shell fired was well within 50 yards or an enemy gun, although these guns wero encased four to six miles distant and completely out of sight of the men engaged. The terrorizing effect upon the enemy gun crow of a sudden tornado of shell la very great.^ Even when the guns aro not destroyed the enemy usually changes his gun positions n'tet an attack as a moans of casing the nerves of the gunners.
