That is tho only reason we can find to feel other than satisfied with the first big scrap. The report that a new coal mine'IB to be opened up at Taber helps to dls- pel some of the pessimism- that has been hanging over the coal Industry In Southern Alberta for a lew. years. The coal industry is coming Into its own and will always be one of our chief reeources. People hardly soem to reaMlfl as yet that ths Jutland fight was the biggest sea battle ever fought iu the history ot the world. But, if the Ger- mans believe their own reports, there will a bigger one some of these fine days and the result will be all that we wish. EGKED UP IN 5SINGI FOR THE BUSY MAN Thoi.

The Ger- mans were engaged by a small por- tion of the British fleet, and when the main British fleet came up; the Germans turned tail, not, however, before they had Inflicted heavy losses i upon the courageous squadron of J3ir David Beatty which nrst gave'ffisni battle. The loss of men on both sldeg wfll total between 5000 and 6000, while the tonnage lost by the Germans n- eeeds by or that I iost by the British. The loos of. the three battle cruisers of the j Mary type, with every offlcer and 1 man of their crewi, is a severe blow I to Britain, but.not nearly so severe as the loss inflicted upon the Germams of two of their latest type of super- dreadnoughts. The British and French have both seen severe fighting on the western front in the past few days. The French drove back German attacks at Verdun, while the British haie Je- poised German attacks near King George celebrated his birthday on Saturday In the midst of west this summer. Considerable the most thrilling news of the war that has been announced for a long tims. King George is the sailor king, and'as such he knows the value of the fleet as perhaps few other kings ever did. His Majesty's flrst message Iter. the declaration ot war was to ie navy and his confidence in it has ever been shaken. If, as one cabled report states, the dmiralty statement of the Jutland ght contains excuses, it will be up o Bslfour to eiplain.

People are now asking if tat redisposition is retponsiWe- for he fact that the German navy got off lightly as It did last Wednesday. OVERRIDING CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSIONERS While serious anlnded ibuslness men j are urging the application of the Civil Service Act-to the outside vice, the government at Ottawa deliberately overriding tne civil ser- vice conimiseioners. At the recent 1 session of parliament J. G. Turriff i pointed out that a Mr. Sherwood had i failed in the civil service eiamlmv tions in the spring of 1915, and. BS4 declined to take the examinations of last fall, although, according to the 1 ruling of the clerk of the house and of the civil service commisaloneis, ithis the regular channel ot sp- poinhaemt. Instead, the government, in order to oblige its political Menus, I resorted to the expedient of putting the appointment through the house fcy a special vote. The appointee owns a store In Ottawa, and his work for the government will keep hkn 1 busy only during the few months that parliament is in session each year. The cleric of the- house, lu repbrt- ing on the case, plainly Intimated I that the position requires no special technical and was just i an ordinary clerkship, usually in Class B, starting with a salary I It the face of that report, aid j in the face of the refusal of the Civil Service Commissioners to grant a eer- tiflcate, the government' has i him into class A, starting with a sal- of IHOO. is the sort of Mid Mr I Tnrriff, "which makes for dlssatisfsc- tion In the ctvil service.

Ths ''longing" of the Huns was the kind best told is the words of the British admiralty: "The enemy broke off action and fied." In one month Alberta, will be "dry." The enforcement of the act will then )e the big problem. The. Spokesman Review emphasizes point in con- nection with the manner to which the Yashington state law is being ad- ministered when It says: "The pro- hibition law and, more particularly, the enforcement of the law both con- Inne to justify themselves. The Spo- ;ane police during the flrst i five months of 1916 have made only 210 arrests for drunkenness as against during the same period in 1916.

A very different kind of Traffic goes along the same road in these present months. Made r.p most- ly of slate-colored ambulances, it leaves the route, for the race_ course soon after the pleasant. little red- tiled town is passed, and pulls up on one sweeping shoulder of the Downs where the largest convalescent hospital in the Dnited Kingdom has come Into being. There are approximately four thous- and beds for the sick and wounded sol- diers in this hospital. Fifteen hun- dred of'the patients are Canadians, who are housed in their own special division. 'A thousand or "more pa- tients are from the Imperial forces, and the rest of the population of in- valids consists of Australians and New Zealanders. In its elements, therefore, this city of wounded, and sick soldiers is a replica of lions in the battle line. Frankly, the. proper title for this settlement is WoodcotQ Park.

T m sure no sensible wife would wish to hamper military discipline by ask- ing that this leave be prolonged, ftut she certainly wants the right to spend the usual time of her husband's leave with- him. .And without doubt, sus- tained by the companionship and love' of 'his. wife during these brief intervals of absence from the hard- ships and dangers of the front, a soldier will return to the conflict more strengthened and -encouraged by the knowledge that after all he is not 80 very, far from those who love him. I iincerely hope' that any efforts to discourage the Wives of our Canadian soldiers from going to tho old coun- try will '.foe abandoned, as one must not overlook- .the (act that this will pe likely to have a serious effect on recruiting, the wife 'being an influen- tial factor for or against her husband joining the colors. The wife ot the Canadlairiioldler does not see why the privileges enjoyed by her English sis ters should be denied to her. It is also, aaid that' it is 'better for the wives ip remain in. Canada than to spend several months amongst strangers. The agents general forget that a larga percentage of the soldiers and their wives of the Canadian army are of English birth and have all their rela- tions and friends in the homeland, and by going over there these, sill have the comfort and sympathy of their. own kindred during the anxious time-that their husbands are at the front, ..instead of knowing as they wouUTin Canada that a week's journey it the least lies between them and the ones 'they love, and that should their husbands" be wounded it would, take so long to reach their side, that in the event of their wounds proving fatal they might be even too late to take a last farewell ot the man they vowed to love and to cherish ness and in health. And even if a soldier's wife friends in England, she has as much right to 'be near her husband as the English and French whes, for is not tier's as great a sacrifice as theirs?
