Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 18, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta mob an THE LETHBRIDGE DAIL7 HERALD St ����>9iiiiioiiiiioiiiii>-s>iffiii(r-a>iiiii3 aiHii>?iiiiica. month In the band of the- United States Coast Artillery. He had boon getting at least $1,000 tor a performance. At one of his recent recitals ho raised |2600 for the Red Cross. THE PRUSSIAN CLASS Amsterdam, Jnly 17.-The events of the past few days has stirred Borlln as the city has not been stirred since tho war began, according to information reaching here. The man in tho street took tremendous interest In the great political battle going on behind the scones and, although (ho exact Is-suos between tho two groat groups of combatants were "veiled from tho common peoplo," the latter nevertheless gained tho impression that Dr. von l}cthmann-Hollweg, as champion of popular reforms, has entered tho lists against the emperor, tho crown prlnco, Field Marshall IHndenburg and Ludondorff. It was almost the first time that von Oethtnann-Hcliweg had figurod in tho Borlln streets as a popular hero, and although his cause had many friends, popular opinion regarded his efforts as hopoless against the great prestige of the royal house, allied with the military imperialists, von Hindenburg and Ludondorff. Von nethmann-Hollweg's chief support in his brief erfort for democracy soems to have come from Bafaria and Austria, as the report goes here. He made two proposals, the first, that in the direction of democratization a new body nndor the name ot the relchrath, should be immediately constituted, which would bo a sort of committee of national defense and would for the time being act as a go-between twlxt the reichstag and the emperor, thus instituting on a modified scale the principle of parliamentary responsibility; the second, that the government should immediately make an authoritative declaration ot no annexations or Indemnities. Both these proposals, it Is asserted, had the backing of Bavaria and Austria, although Austria, naturally, had no open voice In the matter, which was purely a German Internal affair. - Both proposals were violently opposed by the crown prince, Von Hindenburg and Ludendorff. It is declared that Von Hindenburg came out openly for a "German peace," and avowed that Bavaria and Austria ot an Imperial council consisting of five representatives each of the government the bnndesrath and the relchs-dag,� to serve as a connecting link between the government and the representative institutions of the nation has been dropped, according to the Catholic newspaper Gerraanla. The Vosslsche Zeltung, the Tage-blatt and the Vorwaerts of Berlin call attention to the fact that the appointment of Dr. Michaelis was made without previously sounding parliament and that the new chancellor accepted the post without consultation with the party leaders or an attempt to learn whether his proposed policy was acceptable to the reichstag and consider this confirmatory evidence that the reicbstag's desire for formal acknowledgment of parliamentary control of the old government was Ignored. The Vosslsche Zeltung points out that to establish the principle of parliamentary control the reichstag has only to exercise and says the responsibility for the present Irresponsible system rests with the reichstag which lacks the vigor, Initiative and unity to impose its win upon the appointing of official*. This newspaper asserts that without this will It la useless to write the parliamentary principle into the constitution while with it a formal declaration would be unnecessary as the reichstag would always be able to displace an unsatisfactory chancellor or minister. The Liberal newspapers now assume that Dr. Michaelis, In his underlying political views. It a moderate Conservative and cannot have failed in his almoat 40 years' career In the Prussian bureaucracy to have absorbed the prevailing political tenets of that caste. They say that above all, however, he Is a bureaucrat and not a politician by training and that It remains to be seen how he will develop in an office requiring a politician and not a bureaucrat. The Vosslsche Zeitung unintentionally points a finger at this weak spot in the appointment by maintaining that Dr. von Betbmann-Hollweg was not qualified for the post of chancellor because he was a bureaucrat and not a political leader. Bitter Disappointment. The Hague, July 17.-Bitter disappointment In the results of the German struggle tor democratic liberty and control by the people of tbeir own destinies is expressed by the Tage-blatt in an angry leader regarding -Michaelis' appointment, which was effected with exactly the same disregard for the desires of the reichstag leaders which has previously characterized the chancellor's appointment. The paper says; "Not one word of this appointment was said to the reichstag  leaders. Thoy were only invited in ways that lay outside all constitutional ways to give their opinion ot Bethmann-Holl-weg. The kaiser neither received them nor heard their wishes or proposals." The Tageblatt then points out that it Ih hardly a good sign that the night before tho announcement of his appointment Michaolis was warmly recommended by the Taglische Rundschau, the chief organ of the Pan-German reactionaries and annexationists. "The fact remains that Michaelis has been imposed on the people by the higher Olympus. We are a long way yet from the parliamentary system, from the sharing ot power and responsibility, and from parliamentary control. Everything happens according to trading, with the collaboration ot all sorts of factors to the exclusion only of the people's representatives.

Peebles, now on active service, has written the Herald In contradiction of the statement recently made that he was forced out' of the bakery business by low prices of bread: Editor Herald, Sir,-It has been brought to my attention that a letter appeared in your paper written by John Gllmore, to the effect that I had to assign my business in two years time for selling bread at 5 cents per loaf. I deny this statement and was surprised to know that German Kultar had reached Lethbridge, and would refer the readers to R. G. Dunn & Co., or to the Canadian Bank of Commerce. This is a poor time for anyone to abuse a man when he cannot retaliate. Respectfully, W1I. H. PEEBLES, Royal Engineers. On Active Service.

Sir,-A communication has been received by the Lethbridge Trades and Labor Council from Wm. H. Peebles of the Royal Engineers en route to the east In charge of a motor driven hospital rtver boat, protesting against a statement which appeared recently in the Lethbridge Herald. The statement was made by a local baker when trying to explain why the price of bread had increased over that charged in other cities. A slighting reference waB made to Wm. H. Peebles to the effect that the sale of five cent bread was the cause ot his failure and thereby one of the causes of his present whereabouts-on active service. It was not the retailing of five cent bread that caused W. H. Peebles to ceaee business, It was the destruction ot the Union Bakery by fire. Mr. Peebles invitee anyone Interested to probe his standing at the time when the business was wound up both with Dunn's and the Canadian Bank of Commerce. Previous to the fire there was a large stock of supplies on hand, bought when prices were low. The39 were all destroyed In the fire along with the rest of the plant and the insurance companies only allowed tho invoice prices shown on the bills, the prevailing prices being greatly In excess. The usual result followed when a small business with limited capital is placed in a like/predicament. Mr. Peebles claims he sold five cent bread with a fair margin of profit and was Instrumental In making other bakeries sell at the same price, although an attempt was made to line him up and boost prices. The Trades and Labor Council gladly takes the opportunity ot presenting Mr. Peebles' Bide of the question as to why the increase in tho price of bread Signed on behah* ot the Lethbridge Trades and Labor Council. A. E. FILMER, Secretary.

Three bootblacks rushed forward, pulled aside the coats thrown over the laps of the soldiers and found that two ot the men had no legs while the third had only one. The soldiers laughed uproariously, the crowd Joining in the demonstration of mirth. representatives of the great German people having exercised their slightest influence in the choice of the man who is to control the destinies of the country in its hour of fate."

Do Your Share towards Financing the War with Canadian Savings Rather than with Outside Capital. . *r � THE problem'of meeting the enormous coil of this war is twofold. Not only must Canada get the money-most of it, of course, as loans-but she must get as much of it as possible here in Canada. We can carry the war-debt if the bulk of the interest goes to Canadians, and to is used Again in the country's development. But it will be a serious matter for us if a large proportion of the interest has to be sent outside the Dominion. For the sake of our own and our children's future this drain on our resources mutt be avoided i Canada's financial freedom 'can and must be maintained 1 An average saving of 15 cents a day, invested by each man, woman and child in Canada in War Savings Certificates, would enable us to carry the whole cost of the war. To approach this average, hard work, thrift, Mlf-denial and sacrifice are required of every citizen. For each $21.50 you lend the Government now, you will receive $25.00 in three years-or you can get your money back at any time. Certificates are issued in denominations of $25, $50 and $100, and may be purchased at any Bank or Money Order Post Office. 22 The National Service Board of Canada, OTTAWA. ?970 ;
