THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Though local disorders continue, the Situation in Russia in the main is satisfactory, antf the outlook bright for a resumption of offensive movements by her troops on all fronts. The discussion is being resumed in England over the matter of air reprisals on Germany, and it is pointed out that the allies a?e not in a position to divert airships from their vital ^ork on the battle fronts to conduct air reprisals on Germany. These may be undertaken, it Is hinted, when the American aviators In large numbers have joined the allied forces. Repeated German attacks on the Western front at various points have broken down. Artillery fighting is characterizing the operations on this front at present. and Saskatchewan had the Dominion authorities, when they were mapping the boundaries of the new provinces, drawn the dividing lino cast and west instead of north and south. The problems of Southern Alberta and Southern Saskatchewan, ho said, are more noarly one than those of Southern Al-j berta and northern Alberta, or south-cm Saskatchewan and northern Saskatchewan.- "The climatic conditions east and west, the soil conditions and various other reasons were ndvnnced by lilm for his argument. We would not accuse Mr. Marnoch of being a secessionist where Edmonton is concerned. There is a lot of sense In his suggestion. Of course it is too late to mend it now, if we would, but the opinion expressed is interesting in view of the recent action of the New Brunswick legislature looking to a conference of the maritime provinces in the interest of closer unity and probably union of three into one. So far as The Herald is concerned we are pretty well satisfied with Alberta as it is. There have been times when Edmonton was rather prone to 1 overlook Southern Alberta, as in 1914. There have been other times when Ca'gary was too much obsessed the other way and considered us an appendage of that city-as in 1915 and 1916. of course. But Southern I Alberta has forced recognition in the J past two years arid we are going to I get better .treatment in the future | from the provincial government. Po-I minion "government and the railways, i Sunny [Southern Alberta is ell right. There something lacking if a change were made and we had to crffl it Sunny Southern Saskatchewan. The name doesn't just tit. � * * � + ? ? ? ? ? Made in Canada. CARDSTON PREPARES An exchange believes that the recognition in Russia that the future of democratic institutions everywhere is the stake for which the war continues to be /ought, and that her desertion would be a betrayal ot the principles for which the Russian people have struggled so long against such fearful odds, will go far to harness her scattered energies for the performance ,ot tho heavy tasks which confront her. Of the recent election in Alberta, the Halifax Chronicle is moved to say: The triumph won by the Stfton government in the provincial elections in Alberta must be highly gratifying not only to Liberals in that far western province, but to the friends of progress and democratic reform throughout tho Dominion. It is Indicative of the strength of Liberalism in the west. The first parliament elected after Alberta wbb created Into a separate province was overwhelmingly Liberal. The standing of the parties has varied somewhat since 1905, but Liberalism shows no Bign ot waning. Tho standing of tho parties, as now estimated, will bo about the same as It was In the last legislature, namely, 38 Liberals to 18 Conservatives. Tho election was notablo in one respect, as tho first genoral election hold In Canada in which women polled their votes, and it' is, we think, a happy augury fpr Liberalism and democratic progress in Canada that the government which made woman's suffrage a feature of its policy has been so handsomely returned. (From Our Own CorresoonOent) Cardston, June 22.-The Dominion Day committee met with the general or central committee in the town council chamber on Thursday evening with Mayor W. E. Pitcher in the chair. The financing of the various parts of the big celebration was discussed at length and took up most ot the time. The sports committee was reorganized and Chas. Cheesemen made chairman. It was also voted to celebrate July 2 and 4 instead of the third, because of the big Indian demonstration on July 2 and 3 at the Blood Indian reservation. The opinion was voiced that many people would go there if the weather was good and that a large crowd could be had here on the fourth. All committees reported progress. The jumble sale committee, J. A. Hammer, chairman, was added to by some six members as many of those at first selected were going away during the holidays. Three will be a morning programme on July 2 of speeches and music and sports on the town square for the' youngsters especially, with a big baseball game and the jumble sale. For the fourth there will also be baseball, horso races and the completion of the jumble sale. A full list of the events will appear later. Fire at Hill Spring The farm home of G. W. Hendrlck-son south ot Hill Spring had a narrow escape from destruction last week. Wm.
