Having defeated the purposes ot tho Austrian drive, and chocked advance in every direction, the Italians and their allies have now accomplished a counter offensive which has resulted in a disaster for the Austrians. Thoy have been forced back across the Piave River, and are in full retreat in disorder. They are being harassed on all Bides by the allied forces, and the reports this morning aro to the effect that the disaster to the enemy has been complete. This wholesale defeat will undoubtedly bring affailrs In Austria to an acute crisis. Already the government has resigned, and strikes are growing daily. On the western front the Germans attempted an attack yesterday against the lines held by Italian and other troops. The attack was a complete failure. THE SPECULATOR AND PUBLIC LANDS. An Ottawa dispatch concerning the sale by the Government ot public lands In future says: \ On the recommendation of the minister of the Interior, an order-in-coun-cil has been passed making new regulations' governing the sale of public lands in Western Canada. They provide that ,in future, there ehall bo no sale to one person of an area of land in excess of one section, and land must not be sold until a valuation has been placed upon It by a competent officer of.the department after a personal Inspection. All land will be sold sold at .an npset price, determined on the basis o� valuation. . At least 30 days' notice must be given of all public sales. This Is a move in the right direction. But It does nof go far enough. The plan as outliued will deal a hlow to the land speculator, hut It It were made to Include a recent recommendation of the Lethbrldge Board ot Trade, that public lands must be brought under cultivation within a reasonable time after purchase under penalty of reverting to the Government, it would hit the nail on the head. However, we are glad to see that the Government at Ottawa has seen fit to provide the above regu-1�"0M- _^ u.J;^* SMALL MUNICIPALITIES NEED FIRE PROTECTION, Almost dally for the past two weeks the Canadian Press wires have carried reports of fires which nearly wiped out Uttle towns In the West. The Calgary Herald is constrained to remark that it Is a peculiar thing that prosperous little towns have paid so Uttle attention In the past to providing adequate fire protection, The case ot Warner the other night should Impress on the smaller towns ot Southern Alberta the necessity of doing more in the way ot fire protection. The loss ot 1150,000 worth of bluldlngs and stock hy fire In these days is a serious matter. Not only Is the material loss serious but the fact that labor and material must be provided tor reconstruction Js a serious factor in these days when all labor should he employed as far as possible on war work. It seems to The Herald that Iho fire underwriters might do much good by a campaign of education In the smaller communities In the matter ot . Ure fighllng. Much might also be 'done to provide cheaper fire-tlghting apparatus, Motor apparatus has done much tor fire protection during the past few years, but generally it is outside the pocketbooks ot the small towns. Perhaps it the iflre underwriters would appeal to Henry Ford he TOlght provide something cheaper which would serve the purpose. HEAT WAVE AFFECTS CITY COUNCILS. Is there something in the dry, hot weather of this' spring and summer which is affecting the municipal authorities of Alberta and causing them to break out in new places? Had the malady been confined to Lethbrldge .we mlfibt not have wondered, but Calgary has been nttackod-proof that It is somcth^lg out of the ordinary. This new ninlady takes the form of violence on the iiart ot municipal officials towards the press ot the cities. The contributing cause seems to be that the nenapnpcrs dare to criticize tho members of the city councils. Wo admit that it is lose mnjcste and all that, and It seems sti.nnge that tho now.-papers should be guilty of a crime so terrible. To show how a few ot the Calgary aldermen consider tho action of low-brow editors in criticizing them we have only to append a resolution offered at KriiUiy evening's session ot the city council ot that municipality. Whereas It is the feeling ot thi.-? council that some ot the recent editorials in our city press regardinK municipal mutlcrs and ni-jmbers of this council have been insolent In tone, ucnharltable in spirit and untrue In statement. And whereas this council believes U�at such villlfica-tlon ot public servants and niisreprcv^-entatlon of public matters will have the unfortunate effect ot hlnderiUB self-respecting persons from undertaking the duties ot public office, and also causing unnecessary and serious suspicion among ratepayers, which in turn may make them careless of their public responsibilities Therefore, It be resolved, that this council register Its protest against tlio action of some of the city editors in disparaging articles regarding the council without justification, and in discussing public affairs without having accurate knowledge of the tacts; and further that we suggest to the city editors that we would expect them to realize that the duties ot public life are onerous enough in themselves without the addition of unnecessary, undeserved and unkind criticism. It Is only a pity that the aldermen, commissioners and others who give voice to euch maudlin bunk, do not live in Germany. The Kaiser has the scheme that would appeal to them. Editors who dare to express an opinion or publish criticism are thiown into jail. Newspapers are suppressed. The people take what is handed to them and hayen't a word to say. Life In Germany is a nice pleasant pastime with a few autocrats doing the i thinking for the population. The peo-' pie aren't supposed to have minds of their own. Probahly they are "not sufficiently Informed" to be In a posi-Uon to criticize Intelligently, as the motion of the Calgary alderman indicates-a phrase which has a familiar sound in our ears. We feel sorry for the poor people, also the poor, ignorant editors. Well, did you register? No, Marthp. that Isn't the new C. P.R. hotel going up on Gait Gardens! Don't forget the dates of the Lethbrldge Amalgamated Fair, July 22 to 27th. To the victors belong the spoils, but the Austrians have learned that It is first necessary to he the victors. R. B.

Moose Jaw might ask Medicine Hat. The Americans will have an army of a million in France within a month. And during the past three months the Huns have lost almost that number of effectives. The day is soon coming when the Hun boast of numerical superiority will be at an and. Then a different tale will be told. Considering that he was asked to vacate his position as vice-president of District No. 18 a few years ago, the appointment of J. O. Jones as assistant to the local commissioner in charge of coal mining operations in this district does seem passing strange. PICKED UP im^ PASSING '^^ BVSY It AH The Calgary Albertan has increased its subscription price: to |7.50 per annum. In these days ot the high cost of everything else it is hard to understand how the newspapers have been able to keep down their prices as they have. The Albertan Is taking the only logical course, and no doubt its lead will be followed by many ether dallies in the West. The cost ot supplying the war news these days is a feature of newspaper publishing about which the public hardly seems to be aware. It has been a favorite argument on the part ot some of the city commissioners in the past to accuse The Herald ot hurting the city by reports on municipal matters. The following from the Red Deer Advocate is the result of an official advertisement ot the city: The Red Lino ear route, Lethbrldge, will collect double iaros during the days ot the stampede, July 22nd to 27th. ., Doesn't it always seem that the visitors are the ones to bo over charged?
