Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta PACE FOUR THE LBTHBRIDGE P AltT, HER AtP MONDAY, jyNE.21, ,1015 'lLetb beralb Hlbcrta tier and the man largely roBiiousiuie for development of the S.O.E. throughout Alberta; f DAILY AND WEEKLY.

The money thus rals- od is not being spent on the war at all, but Is being used to pay Interest on debts Incurred before the war." asserted Kev. Prof. Welch, head of the Presbyterian and United colleges in Montreal, during an address to the delegates to the Congregational Union of Canada annual session, is'ow watch Welch ROUND THE CIRCLE gf. THE WAR Once more news conies from the Western front of a forward move- meiit on the Part ot tne Allies. Dur- ing' the past few days the British and French troops have been delivering rioient attacks oa the German lines, -in some directions have made progress. The news of another bril- liant Canadian charge in which Ger- man trenches were captured is spe- cially gratifTing. The French are re- ported to have gained considerable ground in the vicinity of Arras. The Germans have delivered .equally vio- lent. counter attacks, sacrificing hordes of men as is their custom. Not less satisfactory is the news which comes from the Italian front, where the Italians are reported as now actually holding more Austrian territory, in fact, nearly twice as much, as Austria offered to them as the price ot peace. On the Russian front the outlook IB not so promising, hut the Russians give indications of preparing a stub- Ijora defense of Lembere. The Ger- mans and Austrian! are pushing every advantage in this direction, viewing the present situation as offering their last opportunity to gain a decisive victory over the Czar's forces. ths Tory press class Prof. amongst the awful Grits. It is amusing to read the criticisms of the late Roblin government by Con- servative papers sinco the revelations of corruption have been made. Right up until the last moment the Hoblin government was defended and praised by the party press and the accusations made against it by the Liberals were always ridiculed. Every charge was cast aside as baseless by the party Journals. Now that the declarations of the Liberals have been completely established, the Too' press cannot too severely chastise the late govern- ment. though they tried to- stifle an inquiry as long as they could. Keep digging out the dandelions. The farmer's smile shows no sign of wearing off. I Foremost talks, ot a three-million pmenel crop in the territory tnbutarj to it Milt Bivsr vrill not a sec- ond place, for its tributary ucoe4ior will hare a hard -task to iOll his shoes. The Calgary News-Telegram, a Con- servative newspaper, says that the Rob'iin government in its corruption followed in the footsteps of the Green- way government. This is an outrag- eous mis-statement of fact, declares Uie .Winnipeg Free Press. Jir. Green- way gave that province twelve years of honest, progressive government, and went office leaving behind him a clean record. The incoming ad- ministration appointed a commission which spent months trying to up something that would reflect upon the Greenway government, but it failed in its mission. The evidence taken by this commission and its findings can be tound in the records of the prov- contrast -with the present exposures is very striking, indeed. There ought to be belated recognition by the people of the province that they .niade a serious mistake in pre- ferring Roblin to mis- take that has literally cost the pro- vince millions of dollars, .maintains the Ree Press. Again n is rumored that Hon [xuiisvCoderre is-going to retire from tie Borden government. That rumor s. nearly, as frequent u rainfalls in outherm Alberta.

The action taken by the Coleman miners, and the return to work of a arge number of the miners at Hill- crest, may prove to be a quieting fac- :orhere, and if the writ asked for, be [ranted, it is a probability that the 'eeiing here will cool down, and no violence result.

He :is quite optimistic as to the out- come of the movement, .although he admits that th esituatlon is not at all 'ree from difficulties. It is thought here by some that the reported action of Uie Dominion auth- orities re the soldiers at Calgary, is a counter to the contention of the pro- vincial authorities, who have repre- sented that the two companies of mil- tia here, being unarmed and the local police force being unable to cope with the threatened conditions. It would be inadvisable to turn the 325 interned men loose while the tem- per or the men who insisted upon the internment Is so'threatening. Such, a solution of the matter, while very im- probable, still might be a factor in the'problem to be solved, and the ac- tion, ot the court at Vancouver is awaited with much interest.
