Von Bethmann- Hollweg, German imperial chan- cellor, in the course.of an inter- view with the correspondent of the Berlin Nachrichten duriny a visit to Munich, says Reuter's Am- sterdam correspondent. Lokal Anzetger, commenting on the interview says: "We inter- pret the chancellor's words to mean that the trenches which the central powers have erected east and-west were an -impenetrable of soldiers which must be the frontiers of the peace London, June Evening Standard makes the statement that a basis of agreement has been for the settlement of the Irish question and that the proposed Irish parliament will be set up at once, Ulster being ex- cluded.

Dr. Cliown. general superintendent of the Methodist Church Jit jl'iumda. in his address to the Alberta Methodist Conference session this i morning. Tho session was quite tho most interesting ami impressive I vot hold, for not only did Ur.

VINDICATES TRADITIONS OF CHURCH i Ilo went on to show that the war has vindicated many historic traditions of the church. In the matter of amusements, the war has rthowti lhat the church was right in lighting against those amusements thai (mid to destroy the people. The opposition of tho-chiirrh to extra- vagance was also being justified. The people must save. Uut of the savings of people of Canada had come the magnificent response to iho llrst Canadian war loan. Before tlie war is over there may be many more such appeals. The saving show. The opposition to the liquor trade has always been a feature of the work tiie Metliodiat church. That fight had been vindicated. The very vitals of the Empire are being attacked by the traffic but the fight of Lloyd George' is bringing forth fruit. The. sneaker rescued that-the Methodist church seemed to have shown a te'ndency to grow out of the revival meeting. But tbe recruiting t meetings which are stirring Canada from one end to the other are a sort revival meeting. Men are asked to come and serve and they are li'oming by thousands. The revival .meeting is being given an impetus by the war. (CONTINUED ON PAGE G) The precipitation for May at Leth- bridge is 11.77 fis against 3.03 in May last year.

P. A. Landry, speaker of the Senate, has been con- firmed officially, according to the Ga- zette's correspondent in Ottawa in a dispatch last night. The resignation, the correspondent has. been accepted by the gov- ernment. It is expected that another French-Canadian senator will succoet to the speakershlp, the dispatch adds, to complete the term as extended. The choice is most likely to fall upon Hon. Joseph Bol- duc, of Lauzou, member of the senate since 1SS4 and descendant of Louis Bolduc, who came to New Prance in .1668. Senator Bolduc resides at St. Victor de Truy, in the county of Beauce. 'Bilingual Troubles the Reason Quebec, June Landry, in a statement given to the press today gives bis reasons for tendering his resignation as president of the sen- ate. His resignation comes as the culmination of the bilingual troubles in Ontario. The senator says he severs from the Conservative government at OtUiv.'a because lie feels that he will have nothing to do with .the Borden cab- inet who, according to his statement, caters to party first before catering to the state, Mr. Landry in his letter to, Premier Borden relates all he has done for the last sis years to prevent the pres- ent up-rising 'against the bilingual J laws of .Ontario. He re-calls the fact that Premier Borden did not give u direct answer to his letters and that: he left jt with his minister of justice. Senator Landry'gays-that he got no proper answer or movement from the minister of justice, and that even now, when the flames Of .interior trouble are flickering out of every roof in Ontario, he could get no pro- per arrangement .with the Borden government on the quest ion. In ,his closing paragraphs Senator .U-andry gives the exact motives of his resig- nation. He says: "I resign in .public as a sincere protest against the doctrine of non- intervention of federal authorities, which have alarming effects as much on the future of the country as'on tho future of our race. 1 resign as a pro- test against the use of lhat double- edged arm which makes of certain members of the cabinet men danger- ous to our race and to Ilic interest it would preserve." "I resign as a protest against all those whose love for power gives them indifference or who are kept in false security by ministerial fav- ors. "I resign, in fact to give all of my time, free from any influence or tie, to the ddfencc of the ,noble cause which 1 wish to hold high above mean party Interests-and for the victory of which it gives me ideas-, nrc to sacrifice what few years I may still have to live. "I hope, Mr. Premier, that yon will understand the necessity of my pres- ent step and lhat, yon will continue the esteem you have always manifest- ed toward your very devoterhs.ervanl, (signed) Phillip Landry."

Tho food situation is threatening to be- come the most important factor of the great war. -A perusal of German newspapers' discloses a wealth of occurrences re- vealing real conditions. Complaints are heard everywhere over diffi- culty of obtaining supplies which are constantly dwindling. Gravity of the situation'is shown by the appointment of Tortilovez von Batocki as food dic- tator. His first efforts have not suc- ceeded in improving tlie situation. Not only meat and bread, but also all fats, butter and eggs, have been placed upon a card system. "Allot- ment of eggs in leading cities does not I exceed .tlirqo ;per head weekly. Pro- I tests against dealers accused of hoard- "ing food stuffs have resulted in the sending out of! the police to search stores and homes of merchants who are heavily punished when found guil- ty of concealing food stuffs. Search of one Berlin merchant's store reveal- Jed the existence of a hollow floor, {where large quautities of food stuffs (lay in hiding. Measures-taken-by Von Batocki are not welcomed by the The news of 11.5 arrival of travelling.soup kitchens circulated in Berlin was the occasion of wild rioting which the Berliner Tageblatt reports fully.
