THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR fi"en thousand more prisoners and i!w capture of another important post CONSCRIPTION LIBERALS ARE MISUNDERSTOOD. l,e Canada, the French-Canadian Liberal organ said recently: "When we go over the list of those Liberals wno have pronounced conscription, such as Carvoll, Pardee, Graham. Buchanan, McLean, Gtillitie. one Is nstonlshed to find the most severe critics of the government and its administration. Any one. in fact in poing over the debates will see that it was those gentlemen who contributed more than nny one elso to bring to light the scandals of the government. How, (hen, In voting for conscription, can these men consent to confide to these same ministers the raising of 100.000 men? In the past this government has been guilty of so many questionable acts, how are we to understand that those who denounced them so eloquently consent to allow them the application of so important a law as conscription? To put the question is to answer it. The on the drive to Lemberg was yesterday's record of the Russian armies on > Canadian electorate is surely aston the Galician front. The advance has now developed on a front of over 100 miles-and has on its southern.extremity reached the foothills of the Carpathians. The Russians are sweeping through Galicia at a tremendous pace and penetration Into Hungary is a matter of but a short time. 'The-'sudden activity of the. Germans or} the Belgian front is accounted for by some experts as an effort by Germany, to counteract the unrest at home and to allay any spirit of revolt. The Germans are showing more activity on the western front than they, have done for many months, in the way of offensive, but their belated Bttempts are likely to gain them l'ttle of real importance. ^PICKED UP IN* PASSING ^^TE ISU^V MAN TELL US JUST WHAT TO DO. Food Controller Hanna has made public, a statement that the consumption by Canadians of wheat, beef and bacon must be reduced one-third if Canada is to do her duty in supplying to the allies these articles of food so necessary to help win the war. The Herald thinks there will be very little diffiiculty in securing the co-operation of Canadians in this endeavor, but specific instructions will �'\| ished at the attitude of these gentlemen, for, after having said so much against the present administration, they give them their support on a question of so grave an import." In view of the very evident split in the Liberal ranks, of the announced intention to call a convention of Western Liberals next month, and of the demand of the Winnipeg Free Press for a new Liberal leader, it is interesting to note the comments of tho Free Press on the above statement as an indication of how it is viewed by Western Liberals. The Free Press says: It is plainly beyond the comprehension of Le Canada that tho Liberal members It mentions have been actuated both in their criticism of the government's record, and in their support of the Military Service bill, by a sense of duty* to the country. No doubt, to Le Canada, politics is nothing but a game and it cannot understand, why the Liberals idid not seize, the opportunity presented by the submission of the conscription issue- to destroy the Borden government and secure for themselves the sweets of office. If the Liberals had lined up solidly behind Laurier nothing is more certain that they would have come into power. All that this would have involved was the virtual abandonment of our troops at the front at the dictation of those elements in our population that hold 'have to be issued as to how it is to | that Canada has done enough, if not be'vaccomplished. To tell us that wo i ,0� mucb already. Le Canada is To tell us that wo must reduce consumption one-third is a very general statement. To tell us how many pounds of flour, how many pounds of beef and how many pounds of bacon each Canadian should feel at liberty to consume as food each week would be putting it squarely up to each one of us. Canada needs no bread cards. All Canadians need is 'specific instructions as to their duty. IS THE GERMAN THRONE TOTTERING? It looks from this distance as if things were just about at the breaking point -in Germanv. Chancellor Von Bethmaun-Hollweg is reported to i appearance. Odd little affairs, some- frankly astonished that the twenty-six Liberals should have permitted a little thing like this to stand between them and office.

It isn't the bare fact that Hollweg is resigning tfiat is so interesting. It is that the people of Germany are beginning to grow suaplclouB that all is not well. The entrance of America against Germany was the beginning of the tall of fiollweg'g power over the people. There are many other contributing factors, but that is one of the most Important. There is no stronger man in Germany than Hollweg. When his influence fails then it is a sign that tho people are waking up and that they refuse to abide by the dictates of the'military power. Hollweg's fall may yet prove to be tho crumbling of the first stone in the foundation of the Hohenzollern dynasty. times not more than a foot and a half long and more suggestive of effeminacy than of masculine swagger. The swagger stick, as nearly as its origin can be traced came from England, where, in days of piping peace, the soldier's very tight dress uniform made it almost impossible for him to dispose of his hands when walking about off duty, and it apparently became necessary for him to have something to carry and tvirl. In England the private soldier carries a swagger stick as well as the officer. They are Incongruous with khaki. But put a tight red tunic on a man and a gay little pill box on the side of his head and the stick becomes logical enough. However, swagger stiekB are not carried in the trenches.

We are very sorry that lack of appreciation of the opportunity afforded them resulted in the citizens of Lethbridge failing to take some official notice of the visit paid to the city on Wednesday afternoon by the good people of Carmangay. The Herald is very much put out that the opportunity should have passed, and that the members of the party should have gone home feeling that Lethbridge lacked in courtesy to a sister town. It may bo argued that no official notification that such a large party would pay us a visit had been received by any public body in the city. That is uo excuse. The very fact that;they were coming and that it was published in the press ut least four days prior to the event should have roused us to the fact t Hat an opportunity was being afforded us as citi-zeiiH of Lethbridge to get into closer touch, with the people of the district.
