Buchanan President and MnnnginR Director John Torranre - - Business Manager session of the information which would decide whether or not exemption should be granted. We do not believe the registration cards supply this Information. Indications are that the Liberals have arranged to provido ugainat any possible defeat of the government on the conscription measure. It appears as if tUe vote on tho measure will be more or less divorced from party lines. If this is the case, thorn appears to be little danger that the bill will be defeated. the Dates of expiry of Muwrnntion* appear dally on address label. Acceptance of papers after expiration date is orir authority to continue the subscription. Your King and Country Need You Right Now! WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH QUEBEC? It ia hard to believe thai French-Canadians of Quebec, are out to wreck confederation, but from the (one of fhe dispatches t/olug received from the eaat. and front the evidence that French-Canadian members of parliament, Conservatives as well as liberals, almost without exception, are against the conscription measure Introduced by the premier, there is every appearance of a concerted effort from that province to block further participation in the war by Canada j even at the expense of Canadian unity. Quebec's attitude is not understood j hy the average Canadian. >Ve ronfea* I that we do not understand it. It is eras, has been severelyr Wounded. Capt.

The arrangements that are made for hearing appeals for exemption, Wjth local tribunals and the right to appeal to two higher ones, gives assurance that no one who has a fair claim to special treatment will lack the meaus to have hlB case carefully considered. But suppose a man has a claim for special treatment and he is really of � greater uBe at home than at the front, kniust he make application for exemption or go overseas with the rest of |bls class? There are many Buch who fuwould not think of applying to a court )\q be let off. They are only to glad *(itq go, once their services are called :fqr. But if tbey are needed at-home, .should they be allowed to go? Should iipt the Btate interfere to keep them mt their ordinary occupations?  7 The Journal presumes that, in this j lease, the National Service directors 8 fwjll step in and exert the power which I'fthey already possess to direct a man �who has enlisted to resume his peace fill calling or take up some other. !� Wo believe the objection is a fair .one, and (hat the government would ' ()Void considerable trouble were there ;�ouie arrangements made to secure >thc details of each man called up jinder the various classes in order The city of Calgary has a muddy water problem, too. Evidently they came to the conclusion up that way that Lethhridge had been the centre of the muddy water belt long enough. Bo say we. The Alberta government was elected by a larger popular vote than ever. That has been proven by the complete returns. Mr. Tobln, the Liberal candidate at Leduc, was elected by over 1,100, setting the record. Lethhridge presents a more beautl ful appearance this year than ever In its history. It deserves its name of the most beautiful city in the west. And while the dandelions are pretty, we could dispense'with the touch of color they lend to the landscape. OCOLATES have fittingly been called "Melba." They are leaders. Their range of flavors, their great variety of centres and their strict purity have made them famous. It may be all very well to talk against reprisals for German air raids, but the relatives of Londoners who were killed In the brutal Hun raid on Wednesday don't feel much like talking that way. However, the name the Hun will carry to posterity will probably be reprisal enough. His name w(II be mud tor centuries to come. The decision pf the Presbyterian Genera? Assembly to defer the church union programme till two yearn after the war will not be quarreled with. This is not the time for sectarian differences. But it would-be as well In new districts to keep in mind the fact that church union is inevitable, so that there may be no overlapping and no building of surplus church edifices ENTENTE TROOPS LAND. lxindon, .June 14.-The landing ot entente troopB at Piraeus was effected in perfect order.
