To all these protestations by Man- itoba Conservatives, in convention aa- ntsibled o( an ardent desire to carry out only the people will return them to is one cruelly effective rejoinder. It is giv- en by the Winnipeg Free Press, as follows: "You had power tor fifteen years and three months.

The. Ital- ians are striving for the possession of Gorltzs, and the Austrians are calling in vain for reinforcements to hold them in check. Tha main body of Austrian troops is still engaged with the Russians in the north. Half a million men are fighting on the IZODSO. Up in Poland the Germans have been temporarily checked by the strong outer defences of Warsaw, and the Russians are fighting with I desperation at other points to prevent j the collapse of their lines. I There has been little change in the j Dardanelles. The Turfes are concen- trating more forces in Gallipoli. The In Constantinople does not appear to be so serious as at first reported. Dispatches state that a Turkish- German expedition is preparing to in- -vade Tripoli. RECOGNIZE THE ANNIVERSARY August 4 is the anniversary of Bri- tain's entrance Into the great Euro- pean struggle. Might we suggest that arrangements should now be made for a gathering of Lethbrldge people on that day to emulate tie action of His Majesty the King, to invoke God's help at a great national recognition of the anniversary in St. Paul's Cath- edral. a Christian nation we have faith in God, and we have the oppor- j tuuity to unite on this day in an ap- peal for his continued guidance and leadership. We aincerirj- bsliave that in this great struggle in Europe we are .fighting to uphold not only the 1 cause of civilization, but tie greatest principles of Christianity itself.

We must get out of our minds tie impression that we hare done aH that we should do as individuals; -we are only on tie threshold of sacrifice. An this awful proceeds we must expect many calls to aid all the patriotic move- ments -More than that, the appeal is coming more direct to our roung men each day to offer to assist in the struggle to overcome German militarism. This call must be heeded, and August 4 should be util- ized for two as a day of prayer; second, as a day to stimu- late recruiting, and to impress upon our people the need for continued sac- rifice on behalf of the Nation. There bnd been a marked change in the German attilude Eineo the war begsn, said Sir Wilfrid Laurler, in his recent recruiting speech at Ottawa. In August the war 017 of Germany had "world domination or down- fell." Throughout the streets of the uiutured towns of Belgium, German soldiers had chalked on tho doors. "William, Emperor of Europe." asked Sir Wilfrid, "was their battle-cry in July of 1915? That the Germans were fighting for their Inde- j for their very exist- ence. That was the excuse they of- f fered to the United Stales for the j murder of women and little children j on the they were fighting for their lives."

British institutions and British freedom, for which ;we are now bat- tling. When the Boers were given their liberty, It was an experiment which only one nation would have dared to try. Tlwt nation was Eng- land, mother of modem Liberty. This in the only basis on which we want her to continue. Canada was free to take part or not to take part in the war as she saw fit, but she did so be- cause Great Britain was in it, and be- cauie if Great Britain goes down, the freedom of Canada shall go down with her. "As a rule, I am not much burden- ed with confidence in the present government, but I gave it my whole- hearted support, so that the world would know we are a united people." Wilfrid Laurier in a recruiting speech at Ottawa. OUR POINT OF VIEW YOUR KING AND COUNTRY NEED YOU! A story is told of the veteran Field- Marshal Sir Evelyn Wood, who said to a member of the government soon after the war broke o.ut: "I ask you to tell me what I am to do.

The Institute of Chartered Ac- countants of Ontario passed a reso- lution urging its members and their clerks who are physically fit to at once enlist. Officials of the Bank of Commerce, head office at Toronto, characterize as ridiculous thc rumor that the bank will let out all single men to make them enlist. A museum of the horse, presenting a complete history of that animal from the earliest known period to the present, has been established in Paris. Manitoba Conservatives have nom- inated Hon. Geo. Lawrence in Kill- arnev, R. F. Lyons in Carberry and W. S. Kenner, of Pierson, in Arthur, J J Garland in Lakeside, F. G. Tavlor in Portage La Prairie.

Ex-Attorney-General Howdcn admit- ted irregular transactions with Kel- ly, but blamed it on custom tradi- tion and party methods of raising a campaign fund, lie could not see that splitting with Kelly, perhaps on a fifty-fifty basis, was wrong, particu- larly when one part of it was to be devoted to such a good cause as re- turning the Roblin Government to power. In short, the blame, was pret- ty well shifted. At this game of "passing thc back" the Roblin outfit showed itself a world beater. A Campaign Fund However, the evidence kept on com- ing out. Horwood, the provincial ar- chitect, admitted changing plans, making bogus specifications, certify- ing fraudulent estimates and jockey- inir. thc figures generally, with a view- to helping Kelly to draw out oi the provincial treasury for the campaign purposes of the Roblin gov- ernment.

These were the net results of the j Mathers commission. The Perdue com-1 nission, which was appointed to in-1 quire into the charges made by Law-j ver Fu.Ler.ton to the effect that the Liberals were to take over the gov- ernment and stifle thc parliament building scandal, came to an impo-j tent conclusion. The fact seems to be that an enthusiastic Liberal worker named Chambers listened to the time- worn proposition that there should be a saw-off of election protests, and was given which must have come from Kelly, to defray legal ex- penses. As soon as Chambers discov- ered that the money had a more sin- ister purpose, he hustled it back aiid was mighty glad to wash his hands of it. Premier Morris knew nothing- of Chamber's indiscretion and did not j countenance his over-zeal. The process ol purging is still go- ing on in the Conservative party in Manitoba. Kelly has purged himself, out of the country. Dr. Simpson, who kept, the party strong box, has been absent for a long time on overseas service. Dr. Montague, who was too sick two weeks ago to appear in court, and who has not practiced me- dicine for fiiteen years, is eager to join the Army Medical Service at the front. Ex-AttOTney-General Howden and G. R. Coldwell, formerly Minis- ter of Education, whose evidence at a criminal trill, might put both them- selves and Kelly in wrong, are to be given overseas appointments. In short, patriotism is the last refuge and you all know what Dr. Samuel Johnson said about that. The Conservative party also hail to look for a new leader. Sir Hugh John JIacdonald is said to have waved away the crown, that genial genlle- man having had enough of public life ever since his famous father's justly celebrated nose and equally renown- ed necktie tailed to land a victory for Sir Charles Tupper in 1900. Sir J. A. M. Jam for short, because of thc sweetness of his elo- chosen. Sir James is not a bad choice, lie is capable and hon- est and rich enough to have ideals. It's a long road to a place in the Ottawa cabinet, especially now that It. n. Dennett, his old side partner, has become thc travelling companion of Sir Robert liorden on his visits to England. The opinion grows that Premier Bordcn is grooming thc bril- liant, young Calgariau statesman for a cabinet job. If that is the case, Sir James may he satisfied with an ambition nearer home. H. F. G.
