Buchanan John Torranct Managing Director Iluilneu Manajet ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR There seems to be no doubt that the note now being prepared ai VVuaaing- ion- in response to Germany's latest note, wiM be practically an ultimatum 10 the Kaiser, and will be. in effect, thnt he must guarantee protection of American neuirsl rights on tlie sens, or suffer a severance of diplomatic relations between the two countries. Should this occur, it is scarcely pos- sible to see how the United States could avoid declaring a state of war against Germany. French and Germans both claim ad- vances in northern France, where the fighting has been most intense, ac- cording to dispatches. The Teutonic forces in Poland and Galicia have been make further advance, Russians claiming to have repuls- ed Austrian attacks. The Italians are continuing their successful advance towards Trieste. .The Canadian casualties have now exceeded the total number of sol- diers Canada sent to the South Afrl- caa war fifteen years ago.

The of tie committee is not to be criticised f oecanse it is only proper that sol- diers should have money at hand Tvhen they return, from the war. While agreeing with the purpose It must be said that the committee's de- cision seems to have been reached -without due consideration of actual requirements of the families affected. In our. opinion the case of each de- pendent wife aid family should have been inquired into_ and treated upon its merits. The Letbirldge Patriotic lund committee, as far as we know, was not consulted. It is certainly in a position to possess first hand know- i ledge of local -cases and it would not 1 have we hardly that the executive committee should have taken-the action it did.

Howden, the late ttomey-general, has been shown up i a very low type of politician, and man who is prepared to play a oar'se game to try and wreck.his pp- oneuts. The new .Liberal government should tart out now .to reform things- in Manitoba. Every man, higii and low, onnected with the corruption expos- ed in that be punish- d.

This is necessary it the people are to retain, or, had we Better say, regain their faith in gov- ernments, partiw and platforms. A widely circulated London news- paper has taken a vote among its readers to determine the men who, in the popular opinion, could be least spared at this crisis in British his- tory. At the head of the list, in this order, were: David Lloyd George. Earl Kitchener. Minister H. H. Asquith. Field-Marshal. Sir John French. Admiral Sir John JeKicoe. Sir Edward Grey. Ex-Prime Minister A. J. Balfonr. Winston Churchill. General Sir Ian Hamilton. Andrew Bonar Law. Rear-Admiral Sir. David Beatty.

There are some-people, even in Canada, who not accept the truth. Canada went into the war voluntarily, and not at the call or the order of the War Office, or of the government of the Mother Country. The Parliament of Canada, "representing the people, decided to take part in the war, and every Canadian who has enlisted did so voluntarily.

Because the Act will deprive the province and the city of hundreds o thousands of dollars of revenue; will deprive more than five thousand wage-earners of their means of sub- istence; will, in addition to destroy- ing other properties throughout the province, close tbe doors of an indus- try, the. Lethbridge Brewery, in which nearly has hsen in- vested, and which puts into circulation in the city a large amount of money every month, and: gives employment to a large number of men; pays heavy water and light 'rates and taxes, and is an effective agent in promoting tern perance by encouraging, the drliking of mild alcoholic; bererageac; as op- posed to spirituous liquors.' 2. Because the "burden of taxation, provincial and civic, will be largely in- creased, owing to the loss in revenue to the province of license fees, and to the city of taxes and' rates, and tie- many thousands of dollars will be sent out-of this province yearly to purchase what Is not permitted to e scld within the province of Al- 3. Because the disadvantages above enumerated will he compensated for by any increase in temperance that will be brought about by the Act, as there is no limit imposed by its terms upon the amount of liquor that can he brought into the province and as the tendency will be to bring in, whether by express or freight, liq- uors of small bulk, the natural re- sult will be a diminution in drinkers of beer and bulky and lightly alco- holic liquors, and an increase in the drinking of spirits which combine the greatest intoxicating powers with the smallest volume. Because the destruction and con- fiscation of properties built up under the authority, protection and encour- agement of the law and of the prov- no compensation to those who are repugnant to all right-thinking people, and Is opposed to all principles of British justice and common honesty. 5.
