Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 13, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, JULY 43, 1917 THE LETHBRIDGR DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE GE E BY L (By tho Canadian Overseas Correspondent) Oniuuliaii Army Headquarters In France, July l'A.-The demand of the liooplo of Prussia for n democrat.ii: franchise which will onablo Ihom to take an effective share In the government of their country and the sympathy movement of the south Germans come as no surprise to the officers of our intelligence department. Letters recently found in captured positions and In possession of. prisoners linvo shown thorn that the revolutionary sentimont is becoming dally more widespread. The discontent is not confined to the rank and file: A per-' son attached in sonic capacity to the utaff of a Prussian reserve division recently wrote "there will probably lie no peace till the same thing happens " as happened In Russia. Otherwise England will not treat with our emperor and we are no longer In a position to make her do so." Ono of the most potent causes of discontent seems to be the calling to the colors of lads who will be IS years of age some time during the present year. Under normal conditions they would not be required to serve until they had reached 20, but ample evidence is now available to show that these lads have been called out and that only sickly and undeveloped cases have boon exempted. A girl In Breslau writing toward the end of June, says, "The 1899 class is being called up here now. Isn't It a perfect mockery to call up such chil- The Sanitary . Grocery we h'ave just installed sanitary dust and moth proof counters. remember our stock is always fresh, clean and the best to be had. L L JARVK 527 EIGHTH STREET S. PHONE 1883 dren? We talked about other countries calling up lads of 19 and what is Germany doing? Hardly havo they learned to shoot than thoy are called up to fight for the fatherland. On Friday, June IB, an awful lot of the 1899 class left here, Ernest Bolich's brother, too. He Is, good heavens, 17 and a half years old and becoming a soldier. Isn't the Gorman state making Itself ridiculous? It used to be said of nnother country, Russia, that it allowed itself to be enslaved. Can the Gentian people say now that it is a free people? No, we are treated worse than slaves." As this girl of Breslau writes, millions of men and women In Germany think. Their discontent Is destroying the fighting spirit of many men at the front. When lads of 18 and less begin to come into the trenches the older men wonder what will happen when that mode of reinforcing the Germnn field armies ia no longer available. These extracts and opinions arc but a few from those obtained. They help to an understanding of what is transpiring behind the trenches in Germany, behind the fog of war. UNEXPECTED MID E AI 'HAT Medicine July 12.-The city and provincial treasury was fattened here by $;i,000 today as a result of raids conducted by the provincial and city police Into the gambling houses last night. In the dragnet thrown out by the officials were caught about 150 visitors, who had taken the Injunction to "turn 'er loose" too literally. Many of the prisoners are prominent citizens from all over the province. The police assert that the gaming tables included the usual list of games, Including several tables devoted exclusively to "crape," which proved popular.. The maximum fine imposed on the guests of the city was $100 for the various offenses. The vice district has been in full blast since the opening ,of tho Stampede. Many of those fined cannot understand why the joints were allowed to "cut loose" In the first Instance. They claim it is a plain case of "shaking down" by the provincial police and they will call for an Investigation.

Phone 120(> ARRESTED THEM. Tien Tsin, China, July 12.- Cheng Chen Knng and Lei Chen Chun, ministers of finance and war, respectively, under the monarchy, were arrested while endeavoring to escape from Pekln. Feng Lin Kow, the Manchur-ian general whose intentions were suspected, was unexpectedly arrested in the Tien Tsin railroad station. He was disguised. Ottawa, Ont.-Most people think i of the sergoant-at-nrms oh tho special custodian of the mace. He is that, hut ho has other duties, too. One of thoso Is to keep track of tho furniture of parliament, and to prevent the statesmen of the day taking away everything Unit Isn't nailed down. Sometimes this keeps Colonel Smith pretty busy, as will be seen from his correspondence with tho Hon. Albert Sovlgny, ranging from February 1st, 1917, to May 1st. Mr. Sovlgny is the brilliant young Nationalist who recently carried the by-election In Dorchester and was rewarded by being mado minister of Inland revenue-the reward being handed over before the election was pulled off. Itefore that Mr. Sovlgny was speaker of the House of Commons and as such formed a profound attachment for the bric-a-brac in the speaker's chnmbers. An affectionate disposition does form ties that way even when the surroundings are only temporary. The books, pictures, music, china,- cutlery, vlctrolas, and such- particularly if they are of any value -creep into one's heart and are rc-llnriulshed with a pang. The articles Colonel Smith has succeeded In getting back from Mr. Sev-igny with the assistance of the auditor general, the deputy minister of justice and n. sharp interchange of letters,  includo ono typewriter, ono typewriter desk, one filing cabinet, and a Victrola Style XVI. Style XVI. Is the largest stylo, but not larger than Mr. Sevigny's passion for music. It pleases one to think that, while Mr. Sevigny did not neglect the practical side as shown by his choice of typewriter and filing cabinet, he also catered to the aesthetic side of his nature by snabbellng the Victrola and the raw material of a great deal of melody in tho shape of two record cases, nine albums, twenty-one twenty-: ilve-cent records, thirty-five dollar and a quarter record, seven dollar and a half records, eleven two dollar records, ono two dollar and a half record, eleven three dollar and a half reqords. and one six dollar record. Anyone who has ever collected tho euphonious disks knows what a lot of music one can get for one hundred and thirty dollars. But not too much for Mr. Sevigny's needs. Music, we know, hath charms to soothe the savage beast and the more savage the beast, the more music It takes. Tho victrola in question was saved from the parliament buildings fire and, to save it from other fires, German menaces and things of that sort, Mr. Sevigny sent It to his home in Quebec. In thus saving the victrola from future dangers he merely carried into effect that policy of thrift which Sir Thomas White never tires of preaching. But he has another high national purpose In view in sending the victrola to Quebec-he did it in the Interest of harmony. We can imagine liim inviting Henri Bourassa and Armand Layergne to tea and then melting them to his will with, a few records on the victrola. For statesmen of Bourassa's and Lavergne's calibre Mr. Sevigny would, of course, put on no record that cost less than a dollar and a quarter. Popular opinion of the humbler sort he would Influence with the twenty-five cent records, including gems as "Some Little Bug Will Find You Some Day." "Who Broke the Eggs on Mother's Forehead?" and so on. My own impression is that Mr. Sevigny is not to blame for those twenty- FINED STRIKING MINERS. Hemm's Auto Livery 24 Hour Service Capable Drivers Phone 1312 Dallas Hotel Winnipeg, July 12.-To put the fear of the law Into 800 striking miners at Estevan, Sask.. coal fields, the Saskatchewan government sent a magistrate to the town today. He j fined 40 of them $50 each and warned all of the strikers if they did not eturn to work they would be' sent under guard to Reglna and Interned. Nearly all are Austrians. They are not after higher wages, but want the government to take over the mines and run them.

The doctor, as I remember, chose his music by the standards prevailing In his home village of Markdule. Mr. Sevigny has an educated taste. Hu has a pleasing light tenor voice of his own and frequently joins In with Caruso, John McCormlelc and other caged canaries. While Mr. Sevigny was Inviting his soul with this concourse of sweet sounds in Quebec, Colonel Smith down at Ottawa was keeping a sharp eye on the vagrant victrola. He was determined that it should not stray from Its own fireside, even if there was a tire. So he started writing about it officially-about It and the record albums anil the typewriters and the tiling cabinets and certain other things he missed. Pictures-a Gainsborough-another picture called in the parliamentary return asked for by Messrs. Oauvreau and Lanctot, "Sweet Cords of Love." It may be a mis-spelling, but I like that words Cords-there must he lots of love around when you can pile it up that way. Tho pictures go to allow that Mr. Sovlgny has as groat a love for art as he has for music. Colonel Smith, as i said before, began to write about the furniture on February 1st, drew the auditor general and the deputy minister of justice into It somewhere In March, and brought the correspondence to a successful issue with all the strayed articles back In Ottawa on May 1st. About the time Colonel Smith was invoking the auditor general and the deputy minister of Justice to loosen Mr. Sevigny's clutch on the victrola, the correspondence lost its cold officialism and got real snappy. It was at that stage of the game that Mr. Sevigny wrote to Colonel Smith that he was too busy working for his country to send the goods back. He also Intimated that his opinion of Colonel Smith wasn't fit to print. Of course, he didn't put it that way. What he said was, "I prefer to make no comment on your conduct in this matter." Colonel Smith was In the same box. He preferred to make no comment on Mr. Sevigny's conduct in the matter and simply wrote another letter Btat ing that he would like the goods sent f.o.b. Ottawa, after which he would see that they were carefully stored until they were needed again. | The correspondence has a happy sequel. The victrola-and the rest of the outfit-is now back in Ottawa after being a year from home. It got here May 1, and Speaker Rhodes is now enjoying the victrola which but lately enchanted tho ear ot Mr. Sevigny. The first record Speaker Rhodes played on the restored victrola was the six dollar one-the Sex-tetto from Lucia. Speaker Rhodes is young, his blood is rich, and he likes the best of everything. Mr. Sevigny, among other explanations, said that he had lost $1200.00 In the House of Commons fire. He seemed to hint that one victrola, style XVI., and one hundred and thirty dollars' worth of records was hardly an adeqviate solace. Rumor has It that Mr. Sevigny similarly deported four bulls from the Experimental Farm for the benefit of his constituents in Dorchester, three of which he turned Into a benevolent neutral and reduced to ignoble toil, and the other of which he ate. Which prompted Jacques Bureau to remark, "It's a good thing that vlctrolas are not edible." CASH STATEMENT PATRIOTIC FUND FOR MONTH OF JUNE * .-On Tuesday evening a severe thunderstorm broke over Foremost and surrounding country. A copious supply of rain fell: This rainfall was followed by almost tropical heat. The absence of the UBiial drying winds made the moisture all the moro'available to plants. As a result, everything is looking well. TRAVERS. Travers, July 0.-Wheat is heading, but jieeds a good soaking rain. Some-farmers are still summer-fallowing, but no breaking Is being done, GRASSY LAKE. GraBsy Lake, July 9.-Wo  had a very welcome rain on Tuesday, It started about 6 o'clock in the evening and rained a good part of the night. Had another shower Wednesday evening, which moistened the earth nicely. The crops woro looking good but. showing the need of rain and these showers will help growth for another two weeks. MACLEOD Maclcod, July 10- Crops In this district made a grea'ter growth during the past week than at any time in the same number of days in past years. Light showers In the greater part of the district, with the hot sun, was just right for all crops, and many fields are now heading out. This Is in regard to wheat sown this spring. Western rye, of which there are many fields, is a strong stand and fully headed, the blossoms already showing. Al falfa in many fields Is already cut. Early oats is now in the shot blade, while the timothy will be ready to cut in a few days. Early sown barley is showing the heads, with the winter wheat showing a good stand, and will be ready for the binder in, July. Vegetables and roots have made great progress during the past few days. Everything points to a good crop, but a fow complain of want of, moisture. AT THE ORPHEUM Barbara Frietchie Is the feature at tho Orpheum tonight. Barbara Frietchie is celebrating her eighteenth birthday anniversary in Frederick, Md., while the town is strong in the grip of tho Northern soldiers. Judge Frietchie, the girl's father, insists that the party in little Barbara's honor will show tho Yankee Invaders that no one has lost heart. But her aged grandmother, also named Barbara, is quite discomforted, as her sympathies are with tfte North. In the midst of a kissing game, Barbara darts out ot the house, and seeks to avoid a group of young men by hiding in the branches of a tree. Four hungry Union soldiers, who have been foraging for food, appear beneath the tree. CRISI8 TO GERMANY OF LITTLE IMPORTANCE. CHAMPION. Champion, July !>.-The crops !n the Champion district uro looking good and unless damaged by hall or frost, the 1817 crop will be fully us big, if not bigger, than last year's crop. The rain in the early part of last week greatly added to the prospects of anothor bumper crop. . The grain will avarage about a two-foot stand, on good summer fallow It is Washington, July 12.-Acting Secretary Polk gavo warning at the state department today against attributing too much importance to Germany's threatened political upheaval. (The apparent passing oft of the crisis Into merely an internal �hakeup , confirmed semi-official, estimates yesterday and led Mr. Polk to summarize the department's attitude as follows: "It is well not to exaggerate tho real meaning of Germany's Internal strife on her foreign policies or on her efforts in the war. Any changes that may take place there would be much more impprtant If they affected the military rather than the civilian- If they reached men like Hlndenburg and I,udendorff, for instance." Mr. Polk pointed to the view of tho London press which attaches very little but Internal importance to the crisis now on and to the fact that the latest news from Germany indicates an easing of the situation all the way through and the probable continuance of most ot the present government. AT THE EMPRESS War in an imaginary principality abroad will be reflected in stirring battle scenes and inspiring acts of heroism amid the grave dangers of the firing line at the Empress theatre tonight and tomorrow. The call of country Is emphasized through contrasting actions of tho hero of the occasion-showing how a brave soldier may bo turned Into an arrant traitor by duo process of selfish reasoning. Allen llolubar, who produced "Treason" for Bluebird photoplays, had a largo idea of the task in hand. Ho has not alone directed the production but plays tho leading role-a. soldier brave in-battle who ultimately steels his heart against his country's need and betrays Important secrets to tho enemy.
