No other purely party government at the present could deal with tlietn. A war cabinet and government representing both parties and the strong forces of the nation working for the wlnulng of the war is therefore necessary."

THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The entire attention of the world has been concentrated for the past week upon Russia, and the humiliating spectacle created by , the renegade troops on the eastern front in deserting the Russian leaders, and, agitated WHAT 18 COL BIG IDEA? Col. Currle's outburst In the House in which he accused J. (1. Turlff of pandering to the pro-German vote In the west was a piece of fool nonsense. Col. Currle seems to be mightily concerned about the west. From the abbreviated press reports of his speech It Is hard to understand Just what he meant when he said: "There would be in the House after election 35 or 40 members from the west who would owe their election to rhe Hungarians and Germans. These men would support a union government. He dreaded the wooden horse that had been saddled and prepared." Col. Currie and his brother members of the east have quite plenty to do looking after their own situation in Eastern Canada. Western Canada can very well look after itself. It lias sent more soldiers to the front in proportion to its population than the east has done. It has looked after the alien enemy problem very capably. We have a big percentage of citizens of alien enemy birth in this part of PICKED UP IN -* JPASSTJVCr **** THE BUSY MAN by anarchists, and German agents, leaving the trenches In horde* and re-: the couutry and we haven't heard of treating pell-mell out of reach of the Teuton advance. Do what they will, the Russian leaders, at their head the inspired Kerensky, have been unable to turn 'jack their rebelling troops to show a front to the German advance. Some units of the Russian army have remained loyal, and with Belgian and British troops have been a_display of valor unequalled, and have succeeded in showing effective resistance in some parts to the Teutons. Otherwise the retreat has been wholesale, and Galicia is again over-run with Teutonic forces. The one hopeful feature has been tho success of the Rumanian-Russian forces on the Rumanian front, where big advance has been made and many prisoner! captured. Operations on the western front have been confined chiefly to the French lines, where heavy German attacks have been thrust back, and the iFrench have gained fresh ground, and 'Inflicted terrific losses upon the Germans. During the week on the British front, several successful raids have been carried out, and the Canadians :have played a large part in these operations. THE POTATO BUG /WELCOMED TO CALGARY � Calgary is in consternation over the 'discovery of two hills of potatoes covered with potato bugs. It was a lliiost disagreeable find. Potato bugs are quite plentiful in Lethbridge. Everybody has been feeding 'em-Paris green! Funny -thing about potato bugs- they follow civilization. 5 Lethbridge has known them for years. Poor old Calgary, centre of gravity-and enlightenment-la just making their acquaintance. What a horrible feeling it must give one to be living on the edge of civilization. them holding pro-German meetings in the little school houses, nor have we heard that they were organising an anti-conscription campaign to send anti-conscriptionists to parliament to oppose Col. Currle. Whether Col. Currie was merely Indulging in hot-weather nonsense or whether he was preparing an irrelevant flag-waving campaign to spring nn the west, the reader of his remarks must draw his own conclusion. But from what we can see eastern Canada stands more in need of a few-lessons on waving the flag than does the more cosmopolitan west. The dry spell in Manitoba has been broken and now amateur forecasters are prophesying that our dry spell will get a solar plexus from Victoria's earthquake. Here'B hoping they're right. The Calgary N'ews-tTelegram says crops in the Calgary district are best. We'll see how successful they are then in filling their big elevator next winter without aid from the Lethbridge district. When one man goes out and pays $37,000 for 260 full blood sheep while a couple of other men go and pay-nearly half a million for a cattle ranch, there isn't much need for pessimism about financial conditions In Southern Alberta.
