KAISER It was the PruBBlans who, on the evening of June 18, Just one hundred years ago, came to the aid of the British under Welling- ton on the battlefield of Water- loo, In Flanders, and helped to ergon the last remnants of the of Napoleon, would-be ruler of the world, vvho had collected a vast French army In a last effort to accomplish his great ambition. 'Today, It is the British and French who, on almost the same battleground, are straining every effort to accomplish the over- throw of another would-be world ruler, Kaioer Wilhtlm, the per- sonification of that military mon- strosity which is the actual out- growth of the Prussianism that developed after Blucher's guards had aided Wellington in the de- feat of Napoleon in 1815. Kaiser VVMhelm is a mightier power than Napoleon. His is a more dangerous ambition. The allied powers are fighting loday that this autocrat may be over- thrown, and the civilization of the world no longer threatened by a militarism that is worse than barbarism. The Kaiser's Waterloo is close at hand.

Mncleod, Alia., June to' The DeWH Franklin Coxson, the Pearce rancher, faced Mr. Justice Walsh in Supreme court this morning, to answer to the charge of murdering John Zoleuian, another wealthy Pearce farmer, early last May, as a result of a quarrel over school board affairs. Coxson entered court at 18 o'clock, looking vary well, although his ner- vousness increased as the trial pro- ceeded.: When the grave charge was read to him he pleaded "Not guilty." His defence is being conducted by Colin Macleod and S. Gray, while W. M. Campbell, Crown prosecutor, is conucting the prosecution. W. R. Brand of Stavely is foreman of the jury, with H. O. Walker of Stavely J. A. Jeffway of Claresholm, O Fraser of Pincher Creek, S. Cooper of. Stavely and S. Maihesou of Graruim, as his co-jurors. Selecting the Jury, Crown Prosecut- or Campbell challenged one man, and the next man up he merely merely told to ?od objected toi n aside Colin Maclc Dinl, p.1TTin this procedure, saying (hat Mr. Camp- bell should have challenged the juror in the proper manner. Judge Walsh reserved decision on the point, which i has never before been raised in court. Two witnesses were heard morning. J. Teersteg and .Miss Lay- cock, the school teacher at Pearce. Coxson, it will .be remembered is fac- ing the murder charge as a result of his Quarrel with. Zoieman over iiic suspeniion of Goxson's son from school by Miss Laycofk. The-quar- rel took place at the school board Zoteman to meet him at a certain place. Zoieman was afterwards found in an unconscious condition from gun shot wounds, lying on the roadside. The evidence of: tlie two witnesses this morning was substantially the 1 same as they gave at the preliminary hearing. Evidently Coxson's defence will be based on an endeavor to show that Zoteman was a bully. This was indi- cated by the cross-examination of Teersteg, by Colin Maoleod, who tried to elicit the statement that Zoteman was of a fighting temperament. Teersteg said be only saw Zoteman London, June cam- paign against the Russians, on which the Germans are now con- centrating their efforts is devel- oping another phase in a violent attack in Russian Poland. An official communication from Pet- rograd contains the admission that the Germans have occupied additional villages near Shavll, in the Baltic region, but states that the Russians regained lost ground hear Przasnyzs. It is in the vicinity of Przasnysz, which lies to the north of Warsaw, the Germans apparently mak- ing their most determined effort on the Polish frontier, although the fortress of Ossowetz again being attacked.
