Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 13, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta >AOE SIX THE LETHBnroGE .DAILY HER AID FRIDAY, JULY 13, 1917 The House-wife's Dependable Ally the canaoian salt co. limited MM VITAL CHANGES MADE IN BILL (CONTINUED FKOM FltOXT PaQE) ter of justice or the government. Hon. C. J. Doherty told the house that ho had something to do with the framing o� this sub section and that nothing was further from his mind than the prevention o� criticism ot himself or the administration. Hon. Frank Oliver asserted that the proposal was a deliberate attempt to deprive the people of Canada of a portion of, their liberty. The minister ot justice, in declaiming to make provision for a loss severe minimum punishment, said that the purpose of the provision was to prevent as well as to punish an offence which should merit punishment Mr. llacdonald argued that thero should be some definition of the term "embarrass tho government." An ordinary justico of tho peace could not be expected to decide what would comprise such embarrassment. It was too much authority to place In their hands. D. D. MacKenaie suggestod that tho government should provide that no action would be instituted without the consent of the minister of justice. Mr. Doherty said that suggestion was one worthy of consideration. The clause was passed on the understanding that the suggestion would be considered, after tho prime minister had decided that It was not proposed to prevent legitimate criticism, but to pnt a stop to any concerted action designed to nullify tho bill. There was a long discussion in tho house tonight over the clause in the conscription bill In retard to the suppression of publications printing iinjclos voicing opposition to the enforcement of the act. Sir Robert Borden agreod that the word "shall" in the clause bo changed to "may." He said thero might be conditions where it would be right to suppress a publication and there might be cases where it would be unfair. This change was agreed to. Sir Robert said the enforcement of this clause would be npproached in the same spirit as the consorship had been conducted. The government had in the past not acted and would not in the future, unless a case was flagrant. Why the United States Has Entered the War A NAIVE CONFESSION. Copenhagen, July 11.-Major Mor-aht, military correspondent of the Deutsche Tage3 Zeitung, asks in a press article whether the moment has arrived for an offensive by Germany and concludes for the present one is inadvisable. All Germany, he ays, longs to hear the charging yell of the German armies in a big drive, but it is doubtful whether the neces-eary numerical superiority can be concentrated against any particular front to carry an offensive through to real success. Partial success, Major Morfcht says, is costly and useless and the general ataff, therefore, is well advised in not attempting a big attack on the western front. Had Terrible Pains in Kidneys and Back. \w Dear Mr. Editor-I want to writs yoa About "Annric." I was very sick, could hardly be up; I was in bed most of the time. Had terrible pains in my kidney* and back, so much so that 1 had to aeream sometimes when I was lilting down and wanted to pet up, the pain was so great. I bad tried a well-known kidney medicine but it didn't help me. I heard of Dr. Pierce's Amnio Tablet* ao I thought I wonld try them. I took only one box of the Tablets, and my back is now free from pain and I can work and take care of my family. I feel I cannot eay enough for this medi* . Sincerely, Mas. Wm. Kblub. President Wilson delivered the fol-loivlug address at the King D.iy oxer-c.lses in Washington June 14: My Fellow Citizens: We meet to rolobrtite Finn Day because this flag which we honor and under which we servo is the emblem cf our unity, our power, our thought and purpose as a Nation. It has no other character ihan that which we give it from generation to generation. The choices are ours. It floats in majestic silence above the hosts that execute those choices, whether In pence or in war. And yet, though silent, It speaks to us-speaks to us of the past, ot tho men and women who went before us and of tho records they wrote upon It. We celebrate the day of Its birth; and from its birth until now it lins witnessed a great history, has floated on high the symbol of great events, of a great plan of life worked out by a great people. We are about to carry it into battle, to fit It where it will draw the lite of our enemies. We are about to bid thousands, hundreds of thousands, it may be millions, of our men, tho young, the strong, the capable men ot the Nation, to go forth and die beneath it on fields ot blood far away-for what? For some unaccustomed thing? For something for which it lias never sought the fire before? American armies were never before sent across the seas. Why are they sent now? For some now purpose, for which this great flag has never been carried before, or for some old, familiar, heroic purpose for which it has seen men, its own men, die on every battlefield upon which Americans have borne arms siuce tho Revolution'.' Accountable at Bar of History These are questions which must be answered. We are Americans. We in our tnra serve America, and can servo her with no private purpose. We must use her flag as she has always used it. We are accountable at tho bar of history and must plead in utter frankness what purpose it is we seek to serve. It is plain enough how we were forced Into tho war. The extraordinary insults and aggressions of tho Imperial German government left us no self-respecting choice but to take up arms in defense of our rights as a free people and of our honor as a sovereign government. The military masters of Germany denied us the right to bo neutral. communities with vicious spies and conspirators and sought to corrupt the opinion of our people in their own behalf. When they found that they could not do that, their agents diligently spread sedition amongst us and sought to draw our own citizens from then-allegiance-and some of those agents were men connected with the official embassy of the German government itself here in our own capital. They sought by violence to destroy our industries and arrest our commerce. They tried to incite Mexico to take up arms against us and to draw Japan into a hostile allianco with her- and that, not by indirection, but by direct suggestion from the foreign office in Berlin. They impudently denied us the use of the high seas and repeatedly executed their threat that they would send to their death any of j our people who ventured to approach | the coasts of Europe. And many of1 our own people were corrupted. Men began to look upon their own neighbors with suspicion and to wonder in their hot resentment and surprise whether there was any community in which hostile Intrigue did not lurk. What great nation in such circumstances would not have taken up arms? Much as we had desired peace, it was denied us, and not of our own choice. This flag under which we serve would have been dishonored had we withheld our hand. ; But that is only part of the story. We know now as clearly as we knew before we were ourselves engaged that we are not the enemies of the German people and that they are not our enemies. They did not originate or desire this hideous war or wish that we should be drawn into it; and we are vaguely conscious that wo are fighting their cause, as they will some day see it, as well as our own. They are themselves in the grip o� the same sinister power that has now at last stretched its ugly talons out and drawn blood from ua. The whole their fires in Persia. Tho demands made by Austria upon Serbia wore n mere fllnglo step in a plan which compassed Europe and Asia, from Berlin to Bagdad. They hoped those demands might Hot arouse Europe, but they meant to press them whether they did or not, for they thought themselves ready for tho final issuo of arms. Their plan was to throw a broad belt ot German military power and political control across the very center ot Europe and beyond the Mediterranean into the heart of Asia; and Austria-Hungary was to be as much their tool and pawn ns Serbia or Bulgaria or Turkey or tho ponderous States of tho East. Austria-Hungary, indeed, was to become part of the central German Einpiro, absorbed and dominated by the same forces and influences that hnd originally cemented the German States themselves. The dream had its heart at Berlin. It could have hnd a heart nowhere elso! It rejected the idea of solidarity of race entirely. Tho choice of peoples played no part in it at all. It contemplated binding together racial and political units which could be kept together only by force-Czechs, May-gars, Croats, Serbs, Rumanians. Turks, Armenians-the proud States of Bohemia and Hungary, the stout little commonwealths of the Balkans, tho indomitable Turks, the subtle peoples ol* the East. These peoples did not wish to he united. They ardently desired to direct their own affairs, would bo satisfied only by undisputed independence. They could be kept quiet only by tho presence or the constant threat of armed men. They would live under a common power only by sheer compulsion and await the day of revolution. But the German military statesmon had reckoned with all that aud were ready to deal with it in their own way. Austria at Germany's Mercy And they have actually carried the greater part of that amazing plan into execution! Look how things stand. Austria is at their mercy. It has acted, not upon its own initiative or upon tho choice of its own people, but at Berlin's dictation ever since the war began. Its people now desire peace, but can not have it until leave is granted from Berlin. Tho so-called Central Powers are in fact but a sin- hitherto despised and oppressed, using them for their own destruction-socialists, tho leaders of labor, the thinkers they have hitherto sought to silence. Lot theih once succeed and these men, now their tools, will be ground to powdor benrnth tho weight of the groat military empire they will have set up; the revolutionists in Russia will bo cut off from all succor oi cooporatlon in western Europe and a counter revolution fostered and supported: Germany herself will lose her chance of freedom; and all Europe will arm for the next, the final struggle. Tho sinister intrlguo is helms no less actively conducted . In this country than in Russia mm In every country in Europe to which tho agents and dupes of the Imperial German government can get access. That government has many spokesmen horo, in places high and low. They have learned discretion. They keep within tho law. It is opinion they utter now, not sedition. They proclaim the liberal -purposes of their masters; they declare this a foreign war which can touch America with no danger to either her lands or her institutions; set England at the center of the stage and talk of hor ambition to assert economic dominion throughout the world; appeal to our ancient tradition of isolation in the politics ot the nations; and seek to undermine the government with falso professions of loyalty to Its principles. Will Make No Headway But they will make no headway. The false betray themselves in every accent. It is only friends and partisans of the German government whom we have already identified who utter theso thinly disguised disloyalties. The facts are patent to all the world, and nowhere aro thoy more plainly seen than in the United States, where we are accustomed to deal with facts and not with sophistries; and tho great fact that stands out above all tho rest is that this is a peoples' war, a war for freedom aud justice and self-government amongst all the nations of the world, a war to make the world safe for tho peoples who live upon it and have made it their own, the German people themsolves Included; and that with us rests the choice to break through all these hypocricies and patent cheats and masks ot .brute force and help set the world free, or else stand asido aud let it be dominated a long age through by sheer weight of arms and the arbitrary choices of self-constituted masters, by the nation which can maintain the biggest armies and the most irresistible armaments-a powor to which tho world has afforded no parallel and in tho face of which political freedom must wither and perish. For us there is but one choice. We have mude it. Woo bo to tho mnn or group of men that socks to stand in our way in tills day of high resolution, when every principle wo hold dearest is to bo vindicated and made secure for the salvation ot tho nations. We are ready to plead at the bar of history, and our flag shall wear a now luster. Once moro we shall make good with our lives and fonuneB tho great faith to which we were born, and a new glory shall shino in the face of our people. each man may know tho order in which he is llablo to be called for service.

COMPUL ON A FAIR BASIS Washington, July 12.-Persistent inquiries from all parts ot the country for information about the method to bo followed in selecting men for tho National war army caused war do pnrtment officials to explain today that President Wilson's determination to have absolute fairness govern tho process, was responsible for tho decision to withhold anouncomcnt of the plan until tho very eve ot the drawing. Tho oxomption regulations and all othor moves in tho making of tho now army have received tho approval ot the president personally and tho draft regulations also will como from tho -White House. All that is known now is that tho drawing will bo for serial numbers corresponding to numbors on registration cards and that it takes place in Washington probably in tho capitol. Secretary Baker or some othor high official will draw tho first number and then the process of selection will he passed forward until thero is flashed by telegraph to every community the numbers of tho men drawn. It is understood that tho system planned Is so simple that the work will be done in a few hours. Called Out In Order.

The Turkish armies, which Germans trained, are serving Germany, certainly not themselves, and the guns of German warships lying in the harbor at Constantinople remind Turkish statesmen every day that they have no choice but to take their orders from Berlin. From Hamburg to the Persian Gulf the net is spread. Is it not easy to understand the eagerness for peace that has been manifested from Berlin ever since tho snare was set and sprung? Peace, peace, peace has been the talk of her foreign office for now a year. and more; not peace upon her own initiative, hut upon the initiative of the nations over which she now deems herself to hold the advantage. A little of the talk has been public, but most of it has been private. Through all sorts of channels it has como to me, and In all sorts of guises, but never with the terms disclosed which the German government would be willing to accept. That government has other valuable pawns in its hands besides those I have mentioned. It still holds a valuable part of France, though with slowly relaxing grasp, and practically the whole of Belgium. Its armies press close upon Russia and overrun Poland at their will. It can not go farther; it dare not go back. It wishes to close its bargain before it is loo late and it has little left to offer for the pound of flesh it will demand. The military masters under whom Germany is bleeding see very clearly to what point fate has brought them. If they fall back or are forced an inch, their power both abroad and at home will fall to pieces like a house of cards. It is their power at home they aro thinking about now more than their power abroad. It is that power which is trembling under their very feet; and deo.p fear has entered their hearts.

War Begun By German Militarists The war was begun by the military masters of Germany, who proved to be also the masters of Austria-Hungary. These men have never regarded nations as people, men, women, and children of like blood and frame as themselves, for whom governments existed and in whom governments had their life. They have regarded them merely as serviceable organizations which they could by force or intrigue bend or corrupt to their own purpose. They have regarded the smaller States, in particular, and tho peoples who could be overwhelmed by force, as their natural tools and instruments of domination. Their purpose has long been avowed Developed Plans of Rebellion The Htatesmen of other nations, to whom that purpose was incredible, paid little attention; regarded what German professors expounded in their claHsrooms and German writers sot forth to the world ns the goal of Gorman policy as rather tho dream of minds detached from practical affairs, as preposterous privato conceptions of German destiny, than as tho actual plans of responsible rulers; but the rulerB of Germany themsolves knew all the while what concrete plans, what well-advanced intrigues lay back of what the professors and the writers wore saying, and were glad to go forward unmolested, filling the thronos enco. If they can secure peace now, with the immense advantages still in their hands which they have up to this point apparently gained, they will have justified themselves before tho German people; they will have gained by force what they promised to gain by it-an immense expansion of German power, an immense enlargement of German industrial and commercial opportunities. Their pres-tigo will ho secure, and with their prestige their political powor. If they fall, their people will thrust them aside; a government accountable to the people themselves will he set up in Germany as it has been in England, In the United States, in France, and in all the great countries of the modern time except Germany. If they succeed they are safo, and Germany and tho world aro undone; if they fall, Germany is saved and tho world will bo at peace. If they succeed, America will fall within tho menace. We and all the rest of tho world must remain armed, as they will remain, and must mako ready for the next step in their aggresalon, if they fail, the world may unite for peano, and Germany may be of tho union.
