THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The most ambitious air raid ever attempted by the Germans over England, resulted in the death yesterday o� 49 persons and the injuring of 200 more in the east end of London, by n squadron of 15 airships which came over the North Sea. The British air squadron pursued the fleet. The raid wot; the most extensive which has yet beer carried out on England. } The abdication of King Constant!,!.:' of Greece will no doubt be alniostjiy; once followed by the re-tnstatenij;vt of Venizelos, the idol of demoo^.'ic Greece, as premier of the cou^Try. This would mean, of course, theifcro-gress of events along the lines* the desires of the allies, tor Venizfjfs was ousted because of his wish t'_Jraeclare war on Germany. Fighting on the western j?ont is being confined at present to^rrtillery engagements, and the rer.i^se of German counter attacks.

Figures tabled... yesterday by Sir Edward Kemp, setting forth the man power of Canada between the ages of 20 and 45 as a', the 1911 census indicates that Ca-wda should be able to raise the rema tider of the halt million quota will out difficulty. In fact, the figures ind.cate that selective conscription in Hiis true meaning of the word could b  applied, and sufficient men found la 311 up the 100,000 quota �without seriously disturbing economic conditions. There is little doubt that Canada as a whole is in favor of conscription. If the application of it is fair in every way and if it.; ia administered wisely, much of the oj position to the measure �will disappear In fact we will be much disappointed if the majority of the people of Quebec do not accept the plan. Until real opposition is shown by Quebec after the plan is in operation, we should not pay too much attention to the utterances of extremists of that province. figures! showed my net profits on the bar alone had been $10,560. Now, I like t( make money as well ns tho next Einn. That Is what I am in the hotel msiness for. I am not a prohibits list nor a temperance mission-', ary. and 1 havo no right or desire to', interfere with the personal liberty of a patron of my hotel. Nevertheless those (iRures made me sick. I had to admit to myself that I was a rum seller and that is something I don't want 10 be. I am a hotel keeper and bel!ev ms to us to be correct. It ought to be possible to conduct a hotel as a iiotel on a profit basis, without the bar. We believe experience and experiment will establish that in our prohibition provinces. The chief dif-fi( ulty with our hotels has been that th J property was too highly valued, due to the inflated value of a bar license. Deprived of this privilege. in:erest still has to be paid on this in.'Iated value and it is difficult, under such circumstances, to, make, ends meet. Over-valuation is the real trouble; just as high valued real estate creates high rents when a building is erected and makes it difficult for the owner to get sufficient return on his investment. In the article in the New York Times in which this hotel keeper'b announcement was made also appeared this remark of the same man: I had luncheon in the Harvard Club the other day. and noticed that nobody near my table was drinking anything. That aroused my curiosity to the point of doing a little investigating. My table wa3 at a Forty-fifth street window, so to get out I had to pass dov.ii the entire length of the big dining room. Every table was full, but I didn't see an alcoholic drink anywhere in the room. "1 consider that very significant, at least, so far as midday drinking in New York is concerned. You know that a few years ago there would have been a cocktail or a highball or a bottle of beer on nearly every one of those tables." ^PICKED UP'IN* PA SS/1VG F0R TNE *usr man Evidently the Board of Trade warnings regarding the state of the streets was worth heeding, for bad spots which have long been complained of have since been repaired. Now is the time to be considering the question of labor to harvest the crop next fall. It is a question which should not be put off till the last minute. VOLUNTARILY CUT OUT THE BAP. "Very few hodil men relinquish the bar privilege voluntarily and yet we read ot a leading hotel in New York, the Algonquin, closing up the bar and abandoning $10,000 bar profitB a year. This is rather unusual and the reason the proprietor gave is very much in accord with the arguments of prohibition advocates: He announced Ills intention to a group of friends at the hotel the other day. "Why?" asked 'w. of them after they had recovered from their aston ishment. j "Well, there's %va reason right there," replied. Cit.e, pointing to a small , boy crossing '.ha hotel lobby with a bunch of b*!ik>1 books under his arm, on his wii' tc the elevator to go to the famii;'. urartments up otairs. "That younv sU;:1 is my own eon, just coming hi, am from school. I have decided that.' 1 don't want to pay his school bllli* md the other costs ot bringing him.up on the profits from booze.

Louis Rosari Gregoire, teller in the' Haileybury, Ont., branch of the Union bank, was drowned when he was upset from a canoe in Lake Timiskam-ing, only a few feet from the dock. He was unable to swim and sank almost instantly. He was a son of Dr. George S. Gregoire, M.P.P., of Lake Megantic. Hon. Albert Sevlgny, minister of Inland revenue, will prosecute the newspapers which have "misrepresented the facts and have tried to create a scandal" over the incident about the few articles the sergeant-at-arms sent to Quebec while he was speaker of the House of Commons. The following is an excerpt from contingent orders, military district No. 10 (Winnipeg): "A court of enquiry composed as hereunder will assemble at a time and date to be notified by the president for the purpose of enquiring into and investigating certain charges laid by an officer of the C.E.F. in connection with the commanding officer and other officers of a C.E.F. battalion now stationed in M.D. No. 10.

OALVIN Room 7, McDonald Block Lethbridge - Alberta The Moose Jaw News, lone Conservative daily In Saskatchewan, is repeating assiduously the claim that the Alberta government was returned to power by the pro-German vote. If that's a sample of the best the only Conservative daily paper In Saskatchewan can do, the sooner It closes up Ub doors the better. If the News will write to Mr. Edward Michener at Red Deer, It will learn that his ma jority of 22 votes couldn't very well be divorced Jrom the alien vote In hla riding.
