Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 31, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta FOUR CHE LETHBRIDGE DAItV HRRALD SATURDAY, JULY 31, 1913 ftctalb Hlberta DAILY AND WEEKLY. SUBSCRIPTION RATES! Billy, delivered, per year by mall, per year mall, per TELEPHONES.- Buetnesi Office Editorial Offlce W. A. Buchanan John Torranci Managing Director BuslneH Manager ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The Russian forces have at. last been brought to the stage where an abandonment of Warsaw Is Inevitable, and this abandonment is even now taking place. Yesterday's despatches crushed all hopes that the Teuton tide would be turned hack and the Polish capital saved. While the Teutons clamored at the sates their birds of prey, the Zeppelins, hovered over the city, making it apparent that it was but a matter of a few hours before the invaders would be occupying their much coveted position. Observers point out that while this is a serious blow to the Russians, it not such a discouraging one for the Allies in general. The Germans will probably next commence another drive for Calais or Paris, but hard though their road has been in Poland, and strenuously contested foot of the way, still harder will be their road on the western drive. The Al- lies are better equipped and better entrenched than were the Russians to withstand a heavy and continuous as- sault Cheering news, too, comes from the direction of the Dardanelles, where it is said a shortage of ammunition in Turkey will contribute to a speedy and, for the Allies, a successful con- clusion of the campaign there. On the front in France the monoton- ous trench and mining warfare is still going on with few decisive engage- ments. THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD ACT Thursday's night gathering the representative men of the southern part of the province should impress upon the provincial government that their Demonstration School policy is recognised as a success and that the people are behind any movement to increase the number of these schools and bring them close to the farmers of the province. This district in the extreme south- ern part of the province is seeking the establishment of an Agricultural School for the benefit which it will confer upon the men engaged in farm- ing. We are united in our desire fc- encourage agriculture because we know that the prosperity and develop- ment of the urban centres depend wholly upon the prosperity and de- velopment of agriculture, and agricul- ture in order to develop and prosper must have.upon the land men who know how to farm scientifically and intelligently. Tho farmers must get the best results from their operations, and they can only get these results by having a thorough knowledge of the test methods of farming in their particular country. That is the pur- pose of tie Demonstration Schools, and naturally, the more of these schools the more farmers who will be reached. Once we have a thoroughly educated fanning population then will we assured of success in agricul- ture. Haphazard methods must be abandoned and scientific knowledge brought to every fanner so that he can conduct his farm to his own advantage as well as to the advantage cf his country. In the view of the Herald the Al- berta government has the people .of the province strongly behind it in its Agricultural school policy and the ex- penditure of money in establishing more of these schools will be approved by the people. It was clearly shown at Thursday night's meeting that an- other school was required in Southern Alberta, and there is no question that the proper location for that school is somewhere in the Lethbridge district. We tmst that it will not be long until the government announces the estab- lishment of such an institution in this section of the province. The Short Course Schools are also invaluable to the farmers in spread- Ing information that will -be helpful, and since these schools in the past have been so largely patronised .we do not doubt for a moment that the De- partment of Agriculture will meet the wishes-of Thursday night's gathering and conduct a number of these schools in this district during the coming winter. At to the Normal have no hesitation in saying that there is no 'better location than Lethbridge.

The striking feature of Thursday night's meeting was tho spirit of co- operation existing between l.ethbridge and the outlying communities. We think that the neighboring towns fully appreciate the efforts of tho Loth- bridgo Board of Trade to promote the cause of agriculture. They under- stand that the efforts are not selfish but in the interests of the whole coun- try, consequently these towns hearken to the of the Lethbridce Board of Trade aud join with it in placing be- fore the provincial ELOVornment those matters which are of so much import- ance to us all. What we need is con- linued co-operation until by unity of acticn on the part of Lethbridge and surrounding towns we will be able to build up the southern country. There should be frequent conferences with our neighbors so that we will fully understand their views and their needs. tion of the nest Normal School to tlon 01 tno iwiuiwi province.

On the other front she has had her lips and downs in con- flict, with the Russians, and nt this moment It looks that her latest ag- gressive movement against the forces of Russia hud succeeded. mat- ter how much success she may have met with during this year of war. it has only been success due to her prepiired'uess for Avar, to her guilt in precipitating a war when she knew that her enemies were unprepared. Her conduct of the war, her cruelty. ONE YEAR OF WORLD WAR While Earl Kitchener at the begin- ning of the war intimated that possible the struggle would last ic-r three years before the enemy was de- feated, nevertheless, very few of us anticipated that it would foe a long war or would even last a year, but the year 13 at hand and there are no outward signs that the great conflict between nations is near the end. It was on the 2Sth of July last year that war was declared upon Servia by Austria, and it was on the 1st of Aug- ust that Germany sent its ultimatum to Russia, and on the 4th of August Great Britain made its entrance into the struggle. Thus today we are on the threshold of the first anniversary of tho WOT if is needless to go back over the causes of this world-wide conflict, because people are familiar with all the circumstances which led up to the declaration of war by the different countries. It is worthy of emphasis, however, that the longer the war has proceeded the greater has become the conviction of the neutral nations, and they are really the judges of the merits of the belliger- ent countries, that Germany was en- tirely responsible for the disturbance which has upset the peace of the world. Germany's course throughout the war has lost it friends; it has proved itself to oe an inhuman mon- ster prepared to resort to the most uncivilised methods in order to win its way. Not only did it fail to adhere to its pledged word to Belgium, but it ruined and wrecked that country, and treated its inhabitants as savages South Africa would treat their most deadly enemies. It has cast aside all the recognized methods of warfare, it has trampled tinder foot treaties which it had signed with other nations, and today it stands be- fore the world as a nation without honor, without soul, and without heart. One year of war has opened the eyes of the world as to the real character of Germany. The war has brought to it only one new most despised of nations. What about the Allies? The war be- gan supposedly between Austria and Servia, hut we know now that Ger- many was the responsible party. Then her absolute disregard ot the rules of war and the obligations she had ac- cepted with other nations lias made tho world realise that Germany is a menace and that other nations must uniie to crush her. At the moment Germany may feel that the year of war has not brought to her forces any serious reverses, 'but sho must also realize that Germany has lost its place amongst the nations of the world because she has forsaken civil- and Christianity. While her forces on the laud may have held the enemy, we know this, that on the seas there is not a German ship to- day, and her navy, which she had been building up for the conflict which she had in view, has not dared to come out in the open and meet the enemy. Her shipping has been wreck- ed, her colonies have- been lost, and Germany now enters upon the second year of the war with all the great na- tions opposed to her and more deter- mined than ever to bring victory to the great cause of liberty. tated Francs and Russia into the itruggle, then its failure to adhere ,o its pledged word to Belgium >rought Great Britain into the war to jermany, ftut against it.
