Buchanan John Torrance Jlanaging Director Business Manager Your King and Country Need You Right Now ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The centre ot attention in tlie war has sliKted now (rem tile great battle niglng at Verdun, which has slackened off considerably, to the possible res.ults of the new submarine policy of the Germans, which went into effect on Jlarch 1st. United States ntficialdom is anxiously awaitins the first -move of the Germans in the carrying out of their intention to sink armed merchantmen without warning. The sinking of any such merchantmen carrying Americans would involve the States in a very grave situation indeed. President Wilson bas not given way to the view that Americans should he warned to keep off these boats. The fighting about Verdun is diminishing in violence and the Indications are that the Germans, having exhausted their efforts to break througli at Verdun are shifting their attacks to other points along the front. ' The French have surrounded a force of Germans at Douamont fort, and there does not seem to be anything for the enemy to do now but withdraw their forces still free, or accept defeat. A great economy campaign 'has been inaugurated in Britain, with the view ot eliminating luxuries and'thtis releasing much labor for the manufacture of munitions. The preSldisnt is trying to keep the United States out tot war, and tho Huns, knowing; hia purpose, are playing htm to the end of tho string. The Spokane Spokesmnn-Uevtew, -which la one of the best edited papers in tho northwest, says Brj-an has bocome'the V. S. "unotllclal aecretor)- ot state," and that the Huns are taking their cue from him. Discussing President Wilson's position under this heading, the journal says that: The whole diplomatic record proves that tho astute German statesmen and diplomats have been 'feeling out' for months tho real purpose of the government at Washlngtoti. After the Lusitania tragedy public opinion was emphatic and' loud and Germany soothed it down with this definite pledge: "Llnei-s win not be sunk without warning by our submarines and witli-out safety of the lives ot noucombat-ants. provided tho liners do not try to escape or offer resistance." We accepted that as meaning, in good faltli, all liners-those completely unarmed and those which carried light defensive armament under the rights of international law. When tho German government made that pledge it know that the United States would take it as given without mental reservations, for our state department had expressly put itself on record with an official statement that recognized the right of merchant vessels to carry light guns mounted aft. No sooner, though, had public indignation subsided in the United States than Germany set up a differentiation and added a new clause to Its former pledge. Thereupon the president tried to hold the Berlin government to its original promise, and thereupon congress weakened and last week brought the whole diplomatic structure toppling down. The rest a child might have foreseen-the instant stiffening up of attitude at Berlin. The German foreign office sees that congress has spiked the presidential gun and promptly shapes its policy to the policy of tho chairman of the foreign relations committee of the senate and the un-ofSclal American secretary of state, William. Jennings Bryan. GRAFT CHARGES GALORE; WHAT'S THE ANSWER? So the graft charge mania has Invaded Alberta! Spreading from the Conservative ranks in Saskatchewan, the virus has infected the blood of the Opposition stalwarts in this province, and'enco.uraged them to take a hand in the game. It is a kind of virus, too, that is , common to botJL provinces, a sort of'booze virus- probably that's where the encouragement comes from. The charges in both provinces have ?uch a decided likeness that one might be excused for venturing an opinion that they "were both fathered by the same sire. Dr. Stanley rises m his place in the house and says that $23,000 was p.ut up by the liquor men a year or two ago, on the understanding that there were to be no further demands. The meagre reports to hand do not indicate where the 125,000 went, or what It -was used for. It Is only intimated that officials of the liquor license department know about it. We have no intention of intimating that Dr. Stanley Is not sincere in his charges. We haven't the least doubt either that they will be investigated. They should be, and if there are guilty parties they should be punished. By all means let us investigate -a graft investigation always offers , a variation of the monotony. But coming so close on the heels of similar charges in Saskatchewan, one can hardly help but wonder what the scheme is. Our suspicions are aroused. ; COULD IT POSSIBLY BE THAT 'SUCH INT�UHE'sT1NG GRAFT IN'-i'VESTIGATIONS CLOSE AT HOME, ARB CALCULATED TO KJ2EP OUR I 'INTEREST FROM PECO.AIING TOO GREATLY ENGROSSED WITH OTHER GRAFT- CHARGES IN HIGHER SPHiEiaBS - S HELL CONTRACTS, MILITARY SUPPLIES AND THE LIKE? Ave PAUSE TO WONDER. It almost looks as if we could safely say "Well done, Verdun." Dr. Blow wants a moratorium. Without discussing the merits of the thing we are quite sure that all Alberta newspaper men personally wish him success. 'Twould be a grand thing. . Surely no one will go so far as to think that Mayor Hardie would like to move his offices to bankers' row, Toronto: noryet'fo Wall Street, even it his last report does indicate that it is good for the soul to visit the money marts occasionally. . Bowser promises vote on prohibition' in June. Evidently Mr. Bowser has not heard of the latest graft charges floating unrestrained through the ambient. Prohibition measures seem to be pitfalls for unwary governments. Mr. Henry "lona" Ford is purchasing whole pages of leading U. S. papers to run advertisements asking the American people to vote against preparedness. Prom the newspapers' standpoint, the Idea Is a "rattlin*" good one. Seems almost too bad that the Alberta and Saskatchewan governments can't get behind the skirts of the Imperial government in these graft charges, and say that "the Imperial government is in control and therefore we have nothing to say about the matter." This touch ot Jack Frost probably Isn't any too welcome to many people but it Is helping to clear up the city water supply and should have our blessing. One facetious person was heard to remark yesterday that they weren't trying the water at his house any more. HUNS STILL UP TO SCRAP O' PAPER TRICKS Press dispatches tell us that toda}; President AVllson will meet with congress and senate leaders and decide iupon a plan whereby the whole for-j elgn- policy of the government-and l.tliat means of President Wilson-will he thrown open to congress for discission, and that it is conildenily expected tho president will come out of the fray with the full support ot that body behind him In his determination not to back down to Germany. And this simply moans that President Wilson is trying to get out of the hole he has gotten into because of William Jennings Bryan, ex-secra. tary of state, and because the president choae. to Ignore that Germany Is � "scrup;6t-paper" nation. BELGIAN PRIESTS JAILED Amsterdam, via London, March 1.- According to the Echo Beige, a court-martial in Brussels has sentenced two Belgian priests and two civilians to imprisonment with hard labor for treasonable acts against the German administration.

M. D. Stafford, Secretary. Treasurer's Report The following is the flnanctal stated ment presented by Mrs. Starnes: RECEIPTS Balance 1st March, 1915 .... $ 42.78 Membership fees ____j..... 168.00 ectlons by the city band and tho Leth- riotic fund; $40 was given from the bridge Pipe band. Trafalgar Day was - - observed at our regular meeting which fell on that day, by the following short program: Address on "The Napoleonic Wars," song, "Tho Death of Nelson". The executive served afternoon tea at the close ot the meeting. Union Jacks were presented to tour ot the rural schools In the vicinity, and short patriotic addresses delivered to the pupils. Upon the recommendation of the educational committee of which "Miss Dawson is convenor. It was suggested to the school board that the pupils salute the flag and sing the National Anthem dally. The Chapter is roost grattjiul for the very hearty support and co-operation of both the public and separate school boards in all patriotic work in connection with the � schools. With their consent knitting was introduced in September and a little later, boxes were placed in each school and the pupils were encouraged to deny themselves and give from what they could save or earn. The amount contributed towards soldier's comforts for the fall term, in this way was $188.37. The result of the knitting tor the same period was 100 pairs ot beautifully knit socks, l6 scarfs and 75 pairs ot wristlets. The wool, for the- knitting, has been provided by the Daughters of the Empire, and Mrs. J. R. Oliver, one ot our members, has assisted with the instruction in the public schools. When the teachers met at their annual convention in 09tober, the Regent was given the privilege ot addressing them on patriotic work that might be carried on liv.their B(;hools and district. The Educational Committee, with the assistance ot the Red Cross society, arranged a patriotic meeting In the Majestic Theatre for their benefit, with Mr. R. B. Bennett, of Calgary as the speaker. A committee of unmarried members, with Miss Bawden convenor, has through the year, been meeting: once a week and making sprap books, which are sent to hospitals In England and France as well as to different training camps and individual addresses. Another committee, with Mrs. Mc-Killop as convenor, was appointed to look after returned osldlers. A fund tor this purpose was started by a donation from the school teachers. Mrs. Brymner and her committee has had complete charge of the decorating for all entertainments, etc., ot the Chapter, and has oh. several occasions decorated for other patriotic organizations. In July, the Manager of the Hudson's Bay. Company kindly offered the use of the tea room, Friday ot each week. Mrs. Downer, convenor ot the entertainment committee, has managed It with great success. The proceeds of the second Friday of the month have been given to the Patriotic Fund. One of 'the most important works of the Chapter Is that undertaken by Mrs. Colpman as l.O.D.E. repr^senta-tlve on the Patriotic fund committee. The work ot investigating cases that come under tho fund, filling out papers, taking part In and supervising the visiting, demands practically all her lime. At the June meeting it was decided to ask the women of the city to cooperate with us In making up a bale of new garments for Belgian, French and Polish refugees. The result was that four large bales, containing something like six hundred garments wore sent in September. In July the Chapter arranged a gathering at Battery Point on Henderson Lake, where a te\v years ago TOombers and friends of the 26th Battery C, P. A., had planted trees. The trees were staked^ the grounds cleared and a flag pole erected. The flag, which was donated by our Standard Bearer, Mrs. DeVeber, Is kept floating in honor ot the battorjr boys.

Glass of Hot Water Before Breakfast a Splendid Habit Open sluices of the system each morning and wash away the poisonous, stagnant matter.. Those of us who are accustomed to feel dull and heavy when we arise; splitting headache, stuffy from a cold foul tongue, nasty breath, acid stomach, lame hack, can, instead, both look and feel as fresh as a daisy always by washing the poisons and ovlns from the body with phosphated hot water each morning. , We should drink, before breakfast, a glass of real hot water v.'ith a. tea-spoonful of limestone phosphate in it to flush from the stomach,. liver, kidneys and ten yards of.boweis the previous day's indigestible waste, sour bile and poisonous toxins; thus cleansing, sweetening and purifying the entire alimentary tract before putting* more food into tlic stomacii. Tliu action of limestone phosphate iiid hot water on an empty stomach Is wonderfully invigorating. It cleans out all the sour fernipntations, gases, waste and acidity and gives one a splendid appetite for bronkfast, and It Is said to be but a little, while until the roses begin to appear In the cheeks. A (luarter pound of limestone phosphate will cost very little at the drug store, but is sufhcient to make anyone who is bothered with bilious-uoss, constipation, stomach trouble or rheumatilBm a real enthusiast on the subject of Internal sanitation.
