Buchanan John Managing Director BualneBi ROUND THE CIRCLE OF' THE WAR The attention of the world is fo- cussed at present on tlie campaign in Russia, where the entire of Russian defence is threatened by the' Teutonic offensive that has de- veloped along ;1 huge front. The Ger- mans are within striking distance of Warsaw, the evacuation of which city at an early date is conceded, and also have the seaport of Riga almost with- in their grasp. The capture of Riga would give the Germans a base from which they might even successful carry on a campaign against Petro- grod, as is hinted In yesterday's dis- patches. The Russians are fighting desperately, and earnest hopes are expressed that they will at least be able to turn back the tide that Is ap- parently about to overwhelm them. There has been no indication dur- ing the past .few days as to opera- tions on the west or in the Darda- nelles. criming station, .and uvery pulpit should be a recruiting troller F. S. Sponco of Toronto. Two papers arc wearing feathers In their caps. The Calgary Albertan and the Calgary NowE-Telegram are largely -credited for the dry victory in Calgary. The Calgary Herald pays a tie- served tribute to the Independence ot tho Winnipeg Tribune. Tile Tri- bune Is a real independent newspa- per, so much so that it is always rid-1 icuted Uy the hidebound partisans ot j both parties. The Tribune stands for what is right and hits out at what is wrong, regardless of parties. That Is real independence, and the Tribune consequently is an influence for good. RICKED UP IN SSINGl FOR TUB BUSY MAN The York Sun has been con- ducting an extensive canvass of the' country and finds uot only that Pros- ident Wilson will be the choice of ins j party for the election of 1916, barring! unforeseen happenings, but that he! 1 be elected if business continues j to improve. As the Sun has never been what could be called a -strong Wilson newspaper, its finding de- serves the attention that is being giv- en to it. SHOULD CO-OPERATE THE FARMER Lethbridge Board of Trade is ad- hering to the policy of centralizing its efforts on the problems which af- fect agriculture in this district, and it is to be wa.rmly commended for Us action in bringing into conference the bankers, the wholesale merchants, the' implement dealers and lumber dealers to discuss the handling of the' crop this fall, with, the view of enabling the farmers to secure the most profitable financial result from their farming operations. This mat- ter not only affects the farmers vi- tally, but it is of immediate concern tc every man engaged in business. It is true that the farmer in most cas- es Is indebted to the banks, the loan companies, the wholeaise merchants indirectly, .the lumber dealer-or the implement dealer, and it Is on account of these debts that so much grain the market immediately after threshing. the notes given by farmers usually fall due in September and October, and there is an insistent demand that they should be immediately paid out of the re- turns from- the crop. 'Consequently the grain goes on the market with a rush and the price is depressed. It is .understandable that the business man' is anxious to have the money btm paid, but we think tWre should be some co-operation whereby the farmers -would not be compelled t6 throw all their grain upon.thei mar- ket at the same time, for the admitted purpose in neatly case of meet ing their financial obligations. It be .better, if-an extension of time were given to enable the farmer to sell his grain at a period when the market is in a condition, and the as the creditor VotiUL turely benefit. It li cheerful to note that the basi hess men Board of Trade on tlus very import ant matter showed sympathy with the proposal. Pad promised to do .vhaUtney assist, the farmers From present appearances Southern Alberta promises to produce one. of the greatest' crops in its history, and 'we all desire that it should be also one of the most profitable crops to the farmer. Last year the farmer failed to secure any crop, and if he can only get a real good pride for his grain this year, he is going to be in the position to pay a large proportion cf his and in many cases in a position to put some money aside. Last year-the farmer vas discouraged; this year the present crop prospects he Is full of optimism, and" we do not want to dampen thst optimism by pressing him too bard in the early part of the bar- Test season to meet his obligations, especially when he feels that he is forced, to dispose of his grain at a price far below what he might get if he could wait for a month or so long- Garland of Carelton still continues to make himself ridiculous. Forced to resign because he used his posi- tion as a Tory member to graft on war contracts, he now says that he will not support other than a good Orangeman as his successor in the representation of the riding. Since Garland was supposed to be a good Orangeman himself, it might be.wis- er if the country returned a better one next time. "Kitchener's cry is now, as it was at the beginning of the war, 'Meu, more The privilege is yours, young men, the privilege of risking your life that your country may live, arid that freedom may not disappear from the earth. It is not to the wo- men that I vould appeal to send the men to the front.
