AN UNFORTUNATE INCIDENT. The action bt the military at Guelph in raiding the Boman Catholic Novitiate there appears to have been a foolish undertaking, resulting In nothing but harm in sllrriuK np afresh the sectarian differences we should all- be trying to- avoid in -these tiines o.f stress. The incident is especially unfortunate in view ot the fact that Quebec has apparently been endeavoring during recent months to swing into line in the matter of war endeavor. The Guelph incident will merely serv-e to once more arouse the suspicions of the French Canadians. . However, the sensible war for all to look at it is to consider the incident'merely as a tacflesa blunder" on the part of an over-zealous officer. There are much more grave matters in which Canadians must interest themselves at this time than sectarian qparrels. LETHBRIDGE WOULD LIKE A VISIT FROM "SAMMIES." United States will have one million troops in France by July 1st. This is several months ahead of the schedule, thanks to the British aud i;. S. shipbuilding program and the sucie.'^.s of the British fleet in dealing wiiii the" Tirpitz piratee. Ciflnada has a very lively interest in what Uncle Sam is doing to turn the fide of victory definitely to the. side of the Allies. We know thai the Ijeople of the United States have been proud of what the Canadians have done on the Western front and we like to feel that our opportunity for reciprocal pride is at hand. That i.i why the plan of sending a battalion of U. S. soldiers through Canada on their way to the front was inspirational. The splendid relations between the two countries for tfie past century were further cemented by such action. We would like to see some U. S. Boldiers visit Lethbridge aa they have Calgary, Moose Jaw and other jioints along the main line. Probably it would be impossible ^o eecure a visit from a whole ba'ttftllon, but when tho next battalion is going through the West it might be possible to have at least a company routed this way. IDethbridge would be proud of an op-]ii9rtunlty to do honor to the Sammies ai|d we hope the local authorities will eiiJeavor to have a visit paid this city � portion of the next U. S. battalion crossing Canada. niann's address to the Reichstag reported yesterday,. indicated tjiat Germany was as arrogant as ever. No admission could be made that nclgium would be restored. But might not the German Ghancellor's efforts have been but the commencement �f the peace offensive? The German will undoubtedly put forth his maximum terms first as a basis for further-negotiations'.' From this hiaxJmum he will �be prepared to recede as his military chances- recede. And that he expects to be forced to recede there are already good indications. One of these came from;the pdn of that strong pan-German writer, George Bernhardt in tip Vosslsclie Zeitung' recently when be declared it. could be seen every, day niore cleanly that ^lis war could not be ended by any military, but only,by political action. Proceeding he said: "The Question is whether we want to end the war by an international peace conference or in separate peaces, as we liavo done so far. Separate peaces mean protracted ^var, for which we need not only strong nerves, but food and raw materials, which can on^y be obtained from our enemies' countries. "The Russian bridge that we have built in the East is not safe enougli for us to engage in a new campaign with the mere chance of securing ' ."lO year-s as reeve of the township, what we need. Already this reason ! makes it 'iihperative, tha't the peace! treaty of Brest-Litovsk be revised. We might also offer a separate peace Lieut. J. C.

Simply try to act in such s way thai we shall enter the conference-room with as many friends as possible."
