The Russian failure to hold the Gal- Ician fortress of Przemysl is shown to be entirely due to the great quantities of ammunition with which the enemy were apparently supplied. This is only another evidence that Germany's resources are not by any means ex- hausted yet, although the daily deple- tion of her stores must he tremendous.

FOREIGN BORN IN UNITED STATES A recent issue'of the Canadian Mil- itary 'Gazette gives a new estimate of the number of foreign-born in the Un- ited matter of absorbing In- lereit, says that journal, now that the United States has thrown down the {auntlet to Germany. "The wrlterhas heard a dozen times :be statement, made with bated oreath, that there are ten millions of in the United States, and wily a few weeks ago an American politician of high rank in discussing the then situation with him, said: 'As L people we are with you heart and soul, but you must not forget our ten millions of Germans.' "There are not ten millions of Ger- man-bom in the United States; there ire not five; there are not three." The Gazette's conclusion is that the itimerical strength of the Allies at present living in the United States made up of of. Brit- ish, birth; of Canadian birth; of French birth; of Russian birth, and of Italian birth. The numerical strength of the enemy Is made up of MO of German birth; Turks Ind Austrians, or an excess for the Allies. MADE IN CANADA WHICH GIVES fUIiCOMFORT (CLOSED KROTCH WILLIAMS.

TINNING, Manager H. E. SANDS, Acting Manager Ottawa, June wise hoys are gucsshig that there must have been warm language between Sir Hodmond Hohlin and the lion Rob- ert Rogers when they met uii neutral ground in Toronto a few days ago. Sir Hodmomi bis bt'en flit1 Honor- able Hob's Leiicfactor from the be- ginning of his political life and na- turally the Honorable Hull doesn't see wily lie couldn't have gone on be- ing a benefactor by hanging on a lit- tle longer in Manitoba. Once a bene- a is Hob's motto, and hi' believes thai bem'tactol'i; should live up to it even at somt' slight disadvantage to tlli'm- selvt-s. At all events it was a partic- ularly had time for Sir Rodinond to spill'the beans. Kir Rodmond had been under good advice Irom the Honorable Hob anil others for months past hut none of his advisers expected him to do what he did. Their advice to Sir Rodmond' was thai he slmuiii resign and let colleagues'form a new cabinet with a ne'-v premier and thus avoid handing 1 the Government OUT to the Liberals. i Sir Redmond's colleagues thought very well o! that plan, and the Hon- orable Hob, hot foot from Ottawa, pressed il on him from time to time, hut Sir Hodmond figured that il would make him the goat and raised objections. Double-Crossed Rogers Finally be became real peeved and said, "Just ior that you II get on. He resigned, as it were, in a holly, taking liis colleagues with him. It was the neatrst thing in the way of a double cross since Samson sacrific- ed himself to destroy the Philistines. since this signal act, of revenge Sir Rodmond has been able to take a philosophical view oi Manitoba poli- tics. His interviews with Liberal newspaper reporters arc full of hu- man kindness towanl Premier rior- ris whom he wishes long life and prosperous statesmanship. In fact it almost appears as il he would rather gave Premier Norris on the job than his own friends who might malign CAUTION.

The time has come when tie citi- zens of Alberta are called upon to consider the pros and cons of the i liquor industry under high license and decide if such well-con- trolled by legislation, is advisable or not Will the province and people .benefit most by the new liquor law or will they be best advised to vote aeainst it? Ignoring the influences of sentiment, is it good practical sense to vote for the new order of things? irave of temperance sentiment is sweeping the whole land, but is it -ood judgment that backs the wave? I What effect will it have on the money- markets, on financial institutions, on the high prices paid at present for choice malt barley, of which Alnerta grows as fine as any in the world? What effect will it have on the con- firmed drinkers, and on the naturally adventurous spirits of the youth of the province? The new act proposes to place tne sale of liquor unreservedly in the hands of z political party, the laws to be administered by salaried em- Iployees .of such party. It restricts ilhe selling to such places as drug stores and government vending pla- ces. In addition it allows every citi- zen to have a certain amount of liquor in his private residence (ex- clusive of apartments and flats) and allows the manufacture of liquor in Uhe province. Hotelkeepers are wiped 'out as liquor of mild doctors, dentisls and i veterinary surgeons can Issue un- i limited permits for limited quantities. I The confirmed drinker will still be laWe to obtain his liquor. Every man 'wlio voted against the act will be a potential law-breaker, either actively or passively. He at least will wink at any illegal sales of liquor if lie knows of them. On the other hand few of the men who voted for the act jwill booms, careless expenditures of civic monies, unreasonable and unseason- able taxes have already given Alberta a black eye in financial circles, not only in eastern Canada but England as well. The new law will produce a very pronounced depreciation in the values of hotel and other properties, and will be another point in favor of finance treating Alberta in a wary manner at least. The shareholders In such concerns as the Calgary Brew- ing company are scattered throughout the country, many live In England, many are elderly women; widows, or- phans. These 'people will suffer. City bonds from Alberta are not .looked upon with much favor, real estate and mineral 'investment.. propositions in Alberta are laughed, at. Now the solid, conservative proposition of the ibrewing company will become a snare and a delusion. How many of the 300-hotel pro- prietors of Alberta have their entire capital tied up in hotel ventures and will lose all in the "depreciation which will result, if the uew- law carries? And yet these men ventured their money in a business that at the time was protected by law and recognized as a legitimate arid reputable indus- try. Farmers themselves stand to lose. In the first place the war. has placed a fictional 'but immediately, profitable value on barley. For years the gov- ernment of the province 'and of Can- ada" have endeavored to encourage the pork-industry of the province, and barley-is an essential'to the .success of that. The high war price's are such that it is no longer considered good business for farmers to .put their barley into pork, and the .result is that brood sows and immature hogs have been slaughtered in. hundreds and thousands throughout Alberta, sold for any price they would bring, the barley disposed of at wa ot me men voteu iui me volunteer as spotters or inform- It was an immediate profit Some will, but they will be in- aad the farmers took advantage 'of it.

It vasn't so long ago, for example, that Sir Richard McBndc was being broached for a cabinet position at Jttawa and doubtless Sir Richard would have lauded if it hadn't been his adventures with Attorney General Bowser, and the two sub- marines. Sir Richard's work with the two submarines was careless, il t wasn't coarse, and spoiled ins chances. Finesse is what the situa- tion that ...ill the best efforts oi the Public Ac- counts Committee. Anybody, as short on finesse as Sir Richard McBride, could never along at Ottawa. Sir Ro'dmond Kohlin, on the con- trary has shown great deftness in getting out oi his troubles. He has not only got out himself but he has left, his" friends holding the bag and has displayed qualities which prove that he has nothing to learn even from the Honorable Robert Rogers. Indeed there are those who say that the Honorable Bob learned his trade from Sir Rodmond, and that the master can still teach tho public a trick or two. Be that as it may, the Honorable Bob hasn't the same repu- tation as a Frankenstein with Sir Hodmond, as he has with other peo- ple who don't know him so well. If he is a Frankenstein then Sir Rod- mond created him and familiarly breeds contempt. It is being recalled that, when the Honorable Bob, in the reciprocity election oi 1911, was made responsible and delivered the good from Winnipeg to.Mie Rockies, Sir Rodmond was jealous and hart to be made a knight as an offset to Bob's getting the-big job at Ottawa. Ashamed of Each Other The feeling which actuates both Sir Rodmond and the Honorable Boh ,0 that ingratitude is sharper than a serpent's tooth and consequently each is very much ashamed of the other. Sir Rodmond naturally remembers that he made Bob the right hand man of his real estate government and that Hob rose with the real es- tate while he, Sir Rodmond, rcmain- jd to decline and fall with it. Bob was a very lucky man to be a mem- ber of a real estate government when real estate was booming. He shared in the 'era of expansion, helped to keep it expanded, in fact, by his per- sonal and influence went on soaring even after the town lots had fallen behind. Hob soared sky high and came out of the clouds with a silver lining which is going to be a great comfort in his old age. Sir Rodmond remembers all that and naturally puts it down to him- self, forgetting the clement of luck and Bob's own merits as a foresight- ed, forehanded man, who knew what I was going to happen next and was generally on the .spot when a shower of blessing was scheduled to burst in Winnipeg or any of the other town lot centres of activity. Sir Rodmond, knowing how the game was played naturally feels that one real estate operator makes as good a minister of public works as another. What he fails to take into account is the Hon- orable Bob's persona! charm. He has made a great hit with the back benchers, not as an orator, for he talks like a scrambled egg, hut as a bale fellow and a splendid promisor. He never sends a member of Parliii- mcnt, even a Grit one, empty away. If kind words never die, Bob is going Olivia: Poor, is she? Hattie: Well, I guess: She'll have HOME STUDY Arts Courses only.
