Buchanan John Managing Director BustneM Manager ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR There will 'be no sidestepping the Kaiser of the new -note- wwc President Wilson is preparing to for- ward him on submarine warfare. Ac- Porting to vesterday's despatches the note will-be practically in the form an ultimatura-which will set forth that American rights must be fun. protected, and that the American na- tion cannot remain passive ther outrages. It may be that tne case of the prduna may have some effect on the terms ot the note, but that effect can only be to strengthen the terms. The French have repulsed two yen- violent attacks by the Germans in the Argonne and Sourchez districts. In Poland and Galicia the German of- fensive continues. On the other fron- tiers little change is remarked. English observers are predicting that in the Dardanelles cam- paign is nearing. They have come to the conviction that Constantinople -will be at the mercy of the All.es within a very few weeks. Conditions in Turkey, where the soldiers are practically starving, and dissentions among the officers are factors which will hasten their fall. Lloyd-George expects to have a set- tlement of the Welsh coal strike in a few days, though the situation looked almost hopeless during the week-end. EVERYBODY SHOULD GET OUT AND VOTE Tomorrow a great issue is to be decided by the electors of this pro- vince. Both sides have 'been present- ing' their views on the platform, in the newspapers and by personal can- vas for weeks. We are supposed to possess an intelligent electorate, and consequently we "look for.an intelli- gent dednlon. -Bvers should cast his ballot with the one object hi view-; tie welfare of Alierta. Even- elector should vote, and a voluntary vote is the best. Don't stay at home and then crrUuse if the result at the polls is not to your satisfaction. You have heard the act explained aid you have heard it attacked. Sure- ly you can now render an intelligent Judgment. Tomorrow is the day that the electors of this province act as jurymen and render their verdict as to whether ABwrta will go wet or dry Let us lave an intelligent, hon eat'verdict.

HARMFUL THINGS PROHIBITED To the Editor of The Herald. the most astounding objection to Prohibition Is that it and hands and voices are raised in holv terror that anyth ng i no company mentioned, neither am I for- tunate enough to hold stock other company. I. can. moreover-say that I-am .not directly or .ndirecly pccuniarily interested in the liquor trallic. Such 'slanders are only on a par. with the general tactics of the supporters of the Act who.call them- selves "Prohibitionists. We have all heen lately treated to display of these same methods in their, cowardly attacks upon Mr. Whittle, which they would seek to clothe under the name oi patriotism. If thev were sincere in their attitude towards him, and really believe him to be pro-German in his feelings and thereby, a man who should not be granted public audience in Canada, win did the) chase him around till at 'last thei persuaded him to enter into a w nttcn agreement to debate the tct m public They also tell us that they approve o! prohibition, but that it would have been unconstitu- tional to insert a clause m the pro- Act prohibiting ehe importa- tion and manufacture ot liquor m the province II they ars sincere m this why did thev not submit the Scott to the electors lor their approv al which everybody knows is- prohi bitive in effect If the prohibitionists are asked tins question they will in variably repU that, having mvesti gated the s in localities orts the Temperance and Moral Re- orm league.: and asks the Legislature o place a prohibitory liriuor law on he'statute books-of this province, 'hey are'not. afraid of trade goins ut 'ot the province, hut are tired o[ redit sales, while ;the cash-goes over Vote No; and Train Your Boy to Be a such a man as the quor .trade, produces.
