Ycur Kins and you right row1 '_________ through tlio winter Is an urgent ne- cessity, no assistance can be expected from tho military camps. It will be a scramble tor the operators to get men oven without previous .experi- ence to take up the work. Properly directed recruiting from tho begin- ning ot tho war would have kept tho needs of a groat and necessary in- dustry like coal mining In mind, and safeguarded its requirements. A wo- man cannot take the place of a Ulan in tho cotll mines, nor can she replace a man on a locomotive, where there is also beginning to be felt a very great scarcity of experienced men. H our transportation facilities are crip- pled, how are we going to expeditious- I ly move our coal and our grain? j There are available recruits and they I are engaged in occupations where [they can be spared. Systematic re- icruitinB would have centred its ef- I forts these men and provided I for sufficient men to operate the farms and the mines and the rail- j roans. It is time, registration was j adopted so that the available men for service can be recorded and the re- of the farms, mines and I railways not furiher depleted. ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The importance of the rapture of Fozieres by the British which is now admitted by tbe Germans, is under- stood when it is pointed out that thi- village provides a cornmanlins tiott of the plateau stretching to the eastward upon which the German lines are extended. The Germans fought in defence of this to the, last man. its importance slsnifieu by the fact that the Geraars dill no; hesitate to deplete their forces at Verdun to defend it. The capture of Pozleres is only fur- ther significant cf the steady manner in which the British oifensive is being pushed, and the German obiter lines being driven slowly hut surely upon their base. Losses have been on a heavy scale on both sides. Britain is paying the price of her advancement, yet tuis: drive may prove to bo the decisive one by which the Germans will fin- allv hp. driven from Northern France and Belgium. Good news comes from Asia Minor in the capture by-the Russians of Er- zingan, away to the southwest Er- zerurn. The evacuation of Erzingan by the Turks marks their complete evacuation of sorely beset Armenia, Statements from the Carpathians fire to the effect that tbe main Rus- sian forces are now only three miles from the Hungarian frontier. Conditions in Germany are unite frankly- laW bare by the Frankfurter Zeitung, whien describes the central empire as resembling a great bosieg- ed city. Lethbridse is asked to contribute '530.0CO to'the Patriotic Fund for the ytar commencing in September. Wo ilid it last year and we can i New York Life says that the Ger- imans have their hands full these fuller tluin their stom- IECUS. That's pnttius the war situa- i tion in a nutsasll. Why not term regiments of slackers I to go out in the fitlds to harvest the grain, into the mines to get oat the coal and on the railways to operate the trains, and bailast the tracks? If all the manufacturers of Canada handed over to the Patriotic Fund a fair share of their war profits, the upon individual citizens through- jout the Dominion would be cousider- ably lightened. AICKED UP IN SSINGLZZZl FOR THE BUSY MAN The Calgary Herald admits that it would be interesting to know whether General Alderson was removed from the command of the Canadian troops I because of his opinions of the Ross rifle. It doesn't seem as though the I Canadian people mil ercr tind out. Calgary claims a population of 000 and is asked to contribute a. head to the Patriotic Fund. Leth- bridge with slightly aver pop- ulation will contribute about ?3 a jhead. That means that the Patriotic Fund directors consider our generos- !ity is greater than the bigger city. Guess it's true, too. SCOTT, SASK., AND ITS TROUBLES According to the evidence obtain eti by the local government-board, the town of Scott, Sask., has a total lia- bility Qt with a popula- tion of less than 350 people, repre- senting about 50 residential ratepay- ers; and to expect this handful oC people to assume these burdens is as ridiculous aa it is Impossible, declares the Scott Herald, Scott, like many another place, on the prairms, had visions of city garb. It was simply going to be great, that .was back in the boom days. Now it is a village and is not likely to he-more than a Tillage, just as other dream cities of. It went into debt to garb itself in city fashion. Scott is like a multitude of other places. It going to grow and grow until it became tbe metropolis of a great dis- trict. Western Canada in those days to have almost as many great cit- ies as school districts; there was just about a uity on the way or dreamed of in every district. -Scott has its debt, it has its public utilities but it hasn't the people to pay the interest on its is it going to do? Scores of other village-cities like to have an answer that solve the problem. If they could get It they might even offer some of the municipality's assets In payment for the information. Scott is just an example of a favor- ite weakness of the past and an ex- ample to municipalities of a weak- -ness to avoid in the future. F. W. Baillie, the Hamilton manu- facturer who handed over to the gov- ernment for patriotic purposes 000 of his firm's profits since the war commenced, should be knighted, and a .monument, as a tribute to his patriotism, should be placed in every stock exchange in Canada.

THE PRESENT LABOR SITUATION Mr. Marnoch's statement on the la- bor situation expresses the views of ninety per cent of the men who are In touch with the requirements of the mine and the railways at this moment. Recruiting is necessary If Canada's men for active service are to be raised before the war is over, but recruiting more system- atic and more intelligent than that in vogue up to the present. There needs lo be some radical change, some con- sideration of existing needs of the great natural resources of bur coun- try. It-is true, farmers will have assis-t ince from the soluiera at lhat of course will be very acceptable 10 the farmers.

Many Aliens There is another very serious con- sideration in connection with the trouble. Practically 75 pur cent of the miners remaining In the mines, are of alien enemy birth.
