Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIPQE SATURDAY, JULY 17, 191S fteralfc ietbbrttsje, Hlberu DAILY AND WlfKLY. Oilly, DHIy, bjr kill, to mail. TELEPHONES; Buelneii Onlco Editorial Offlce W. A. Buchanan John Ifanastni Director Bu.tnew Manager apiwIiitliiB ot u lloyol Commission was unconstitutional. Tho Winnipeg Frco Press puts the case very effect- ively whoa it Sir Douglas Cameron's unforgivable offence, in tholr eyon, Is that ho was instrumental in' making Sir Hod- mond's further continuance -lu power impossible. Me usixl tho powers of his office to defend the putbllc- trees- urv from the tliloves who hud been looting II. The newly-Hedged purists are pleasod, they any, that tho thiev- ing has stopped; -but death and dam- nation to the man who stopped iti There is no likelihood o! the people joining In nu, uprising against the lieutenant-governor, whose- only crime is that he tried to clean up the 'bad mess in -Manitoba. ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR Still more strenuous fighting is de- veloping north of Warsaw, where the Teutons have commenced a new drive altogether unexpt-itcilv. The Rus- sian statement, howevor, is to the effect that most of the attacks have been repulsed. On the western front the Germans are also showing great activity against the French line, out ths favors are about even so far as can be judged by despatches. )n England Lloyd George has taken holtl of the coal strike situation by appointing a special tribunal of three to handle the problem. In Canada there is an ever-growing effort to bring home to the young men of the country the realization of the neces- sity for enlistment on a still larger scale. At Washington Count Bernstorff. German ambassador, has state'd that. Germany is still anxious to preserve friendly relations with, the United States and that the terms of the Ger- man reply to President Wilson were couched in language calculated to satisfy the mind of the German peo- ple.. This statement -will likely be accented at Washington lor just what it is worth. BENEAffl THE TOW (HI PARLIAMENT HILL GOSSIPY LETTER BY GADSBY j An official of one of the Mg Ameri- can tractor companies, Mr. Blanc-hard ot the Knos Co.. having- returned from a 'business visit to the French front, brings news of a new 20-ton gun which is .to -be shortly used on the western front- It will be mounted on a special carriage and will be allied by a tractor. "It would be impossible for the Jermnns tf) take Paris Mr. lanchard said further, "as the 'rench army engineers have built oucrete trenches every three or four from mi, capital lo Compiegne ml Soissons over the wliolc'of upper Vance. Yon can judge the number f shells required for the war when alone were fired ill one day the French artillery at La Jassee. The drive has already be- <-un. -and the now Kitchener army, vhich has been collecting at Dun- Calais and Havre, will soon tie n action. The delay on the part of le British was flue entirely to the act of ammunition, which was well known at the staff headquarters in louen and Havre. British have been rriving at Havre in lany as 15.00D in one have isrched to the 31 camps outside the city. After remaining there two or hrec days to collect their am- munition and kit. they march off to he front There are'on the average rom 90 to 150 transports entering Javre every day, and tho same num- The converted Conservative party in Manitoba has committed itself to Prohibition; It is hardly likely that the people of Manitoba will take much stock in their pledge in that direction. The Conservative, party came to power in that province Brteen years ago with the definite pledge to put Prohibition into effect This they failed to do and the people nave not forgotten the failure to carry out this There are many incidents at hand to prove that the older men are set- ting an eiample to the younger-gen- eration in these days of war. What an inspiration to read of Dr. Mew- burn's departure to serve his coun- try. A man advanced in years and in a position to enjoy the comforts of "life after years of strenuous prac- tice of his profession, he Tiears the cali for service and leaves for tie front to minister to the sick and The young men should follow the doctor in an effort lo do their bit, no matter whether it be in the trettcfies, or back of the firing line.
