Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta PACE FOUR THE D AlLf HERALD FRIDAY, JULY ISJ5 She fteralb alberta DAILY AND WKEKLV, SUBSCRIPTION ly, delivered, per year Dilly. by mall, per year by miii, per year.. Office Wltorial OfflcP "24 W. A. Buchanan John Managing Director Business Manager Canada and tho 'UulteiL States ou to thn pralitcs lo haiidlo the harvest. Wo must seo that tho unemployed labor In Alberta Is glvoii the fjrsl opportun- ity1 lo moot tho local dcmauil. Ttiu opportunity Is doors to relieve the unemployed sltuution, 'anil tliero should be some concerted effort put forth ai once to liuvc these men ed on farms during the harvest per- iod. It the local wiily Is uot suffi- cient, wo can soon find out, and the labor from other parts of the country can be brought in. ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR New attacks of the Teutonic forces have developed in the vicinity of 'Warsaw, and apparently the Germans have not yet given im their object of capturing: the Polish capital. The Russians claim that in several points these new assaults have been repuls- ed, but the Teutons claim to have taken Prasnysz. and also record suc- cesses along the east Prussian fron- tier. Furious drives by the Germans ag- ainst the French lines are also being repulsed, and the efforts of the Kais- er's forces in the Argonne and the Verdun regions have thus far been practically fruitless. Both Allies and Turfes claim to have had success in recent lighting on the Gailipoli peninsula. The Al- lies record a very important gain. A new situation has arisen in ESig- land put of the strike of the Welsh coal miners, who defy the govern- ment to enforce the new act whereby strikers engaged in production of war necessities are'to be heavily fined. The mines which supply most of the navy with coal are now tied up. The Admiralty has already taken over all reserves of coal, and the government are now considering what steps they can take to handle the crisis. General Botha today ranks as cue. of the greatest men ir. !h; British Kmpire This man, who wns a Boer general fighting against the British in the South African war. today stands in the proud position of having overcome with South African volun- teers all the German forces in South Africa, and brought under (he British flag practically the greater portion of the German colonies. At the be- ginning of tbo war, he faced some in- ternal troubles in South Africa, but these he overcame very quickly, and ;t is safe to say that South Africa is now united behind Botha and his pur- pose to continue to assist Great Bri- tain in its great struggle for freedom and liberty. South Africa has un- dergone a wonderful transformation n fifteen years, and no man deserves greater credit than Louis Botha. Dr. J. P. Howden Is to be an inde- pendent Liberal candidate ia St. Bon- iface for the -Manitoba Legislature. We are afraid Ms name will prove a hoodoo. -The members of the new Home Guard made an admirable choice of a head in Chief Skelton. The Chief had military experience, and Bis as chief of police puts him in a position to direct an organization where drill and discipline are import- ant factors. Dr. Micliael Clark. M.P., is soing east to participate in a recruiting in Ontario. It to us that more of our public men should engage in this work. It is true that n. western Canada the call for men has-been, answered very readily; !n eastern Canada the response lately ms been far from satisfactory, and he public men should get out and arouse the people. Canadians must oe made to realize more than they do at the present time the task they iave undertaken, and they must also bo impressed with the fact that this s a war in which Canada vitally nterested. If the Allies lose, Can- ada must lose also, and it will lose iiore Uian most of us imagine. It is even possible that a victory for Ger- many would put us .under the rule of Germany, and surely there is no' Ca- nadian who is familiar with the Brl- ish system of government who would want to see this country under the German system. If we want to avoid victory our sons must oln the forces, and enter the battle ine to struggle for the maintenance the great principles which we pos- sess as a British Dominion. Arthur R.. Ford, one of the best known, best liked and best informed members of the Press Gallery at- Ot- tawa, has been elected secretary of the International Press Congress. Any job that Ford, .undertakes is filled sat- isfactorily, and that will be the case with hlfi new position- The Monetary Times estimates that since the war commenced contracts have been given out in Canada for war munitions by the British, French and Russian gov-srnmcnts to the am- ount of This sum must have assisted to relieve a lot of unem- ployment. Without it conditions would certainly have been worse. Sir James Aikins has been named leader" of the Conservative party in Sir James is a-nice, de- cent--fellow, but up until the last mo- ment he defended the Roblin govern- ment against the charges the Liberals preferred against it. The Conserva- tive party must bear the sins of the government it so consistently sup- ported in Manitoba. Cecil 5. Burgess, professor of archi- tecture in the University, of Alberta has enlisted as a private in the 66th Battalion at Edmonton. This is an example that might well be followed Tby other men ia the province. Pro- fessor Burgess evidently thinks suf- ficient of his country and its need at the present time to serve, in any capacity. _ Most farmers are looking to get enough out of this year's crop to pay off a big proportion of their obliga- tions. Were they only able to hold their crop until they could sell at a price that was satisfactory to them, it would be better. As it is, most of the wheat, goes on the-market In western Canada immediately harvest is through, for the reason that farmers have to dispose of their wheat to meet the demands of those people whom they owe. v In. many cases it hotter .for the creditors if they give the farmers oppor- tunity to .dispose of their grain at the at any rate, it would cer- Ulalyvbe.better Jor the country as. a whale. It is stated preparation are be- ing made by.the authorities to bring )abor Irom Columbia, eastern.
