Ycu PUglit Now The saving in thelfoiip Bovril makes soups aiid stews so iiiiich � more nourishing that they can often take the place of expensive joints. It ^ves many dollars. in the kitchen. Bovril is the concentrated goodness of the best beef-so strong that-it cannot possibly be manufactured in cheap cubes. Insist upon the real thing-Bovril in the Bovril Bottle. ROUND THE CIRCLE-OF THE WAR German gains of sUgUt importance �were recorded in the flghtinp around Verdun yesterday. The Germans have entirely failed to gain the plateau of Douamont and are diverting their attacks to the French lines west of the Jleuse. The Germans were successful, at great cost of life, iu gaining Hill 265. Dispatches state that a strong fleet of German dreadnoughts has sailed from the Kiel canal, and are now iu the North Sea. Hon. Mr. Balfour lias stated in the house that the British navy is stronger now- than ever, that 1,000,000 in tonnage has been added to the navy since the war began, and that the air defences have also been greatly increased. President Wilson is rapidly gaining the. support of congress in his attitude not to tolerate the new submarine policy of the Germans Insofar as It will interfere with the rights of Americans to travel on the high seas. AND GERMANY FINDS BOTH ROADS BLOCKED Germany chose to invade Belgium to. find a short road to Paris, thus ' giving Britain a casus belli. Germany Invaded Belgium to avoid the hard road via Verdun. But the short road didn't avail her anything, and now �he must needs try the longer and harder road she first avoided. Failure stares her in, the face on the hard road, just as it did on the easier road. Just what, therefore, has her disregard of that "scrap o' paper" availed her? shutters because they have become bankrupt. All the incomes of private citizens have been sent to England in order to help that tyrannical country to carry on the war. The Dominion government has confiscated all the wheat supply. And various other things have happened to us which we know not. , So soys the Cologne Gazette, an official organ of the German foreign office. How does it know? Presumably through its highly efficient espionage service. German spies, like German newspapers, take particular interest in what the latter descriije as "Sir Borden's satrapy." The press, indeed, 'waxes quite pathetic over our hard fate and points out with tears in its gutteral voice that "the British colonies must pay dearly for the Motherland's ambitions." Yet it Is odd that, though we are a ruined and down-trodden country, our volunteers should make themselves so objectionable to the Hun in Flanders that he would'�rather do anytliing rather, than attack Canadian trenches. And for a bankrupt government to get $iOb,OOOiOOO when It asked for a loan of only ^50,000,000 is more singular still. Finally, that our impoverished citizens, who have all their incomes confiscated and sent to Britain for war purposes, sh&uld be able to subscribe millions of dollars to patriotic funds and keep on doing it is the most amazing thing of all. But, of course, these interesting ro-mances are being published only to divert the Hun mind from the emptiness of the larder. How long will he subsist on fiction as a substitute for bread? An army marches on its stomach; the German army will surrender on it. One wonders, after reading It, how we would have fared as a German colony. f)ICKED UP IN ASSINGCIIZl FOR THE BUSY MAN The Rev. Hugh W. Locke, one time minister of the Hope Methodist church, Toronto, died at his home in Toronto from paralysis of the nerves. Hon. James McDonald, member of the Nova Scotia government without portfolio, died at his home at West Bay, Cape Breton. BERTA HO,USE SH TO BE MOST TRiil (Continued fhom Front Page)** A RECRUITING OFFICE AND NOT A MORGUE Lethhrldge has heen combed with �a fine-tooth comb for recruits for . various units. That is true. But there are more men here yet. And there are many men dropping in to the city every day who would enlist. . ' But the enthusiasm has vanished. celved Assurances that Lethbridge would be a permanent recruiting cen-tre. That would mean a permanent , reor,uiUng office. And surely that ."would mean a down-town recruiting ofDce, bright'and cheery, with some enthusiasm prevailing in its environs. It ought to be the most conspicuous |je charges was the same au told Mrs. Lawrence Kenny, Kingston, Ont. of in tho affidavits. Mr. Michener replying, expressed disappointment that the premier demanded specific charges. . He said if the -commission were granted, thoy would prove the charges to the hilt. He charged the premier with subterfuge, and proceeding admitted, amidst general laughter from the Liberal benches, that the presentation of the charges last week were staged for the benefit of the ladle.s, who filled the galleries to hear the debate on the suffrage hill. That wasn't strange, ho said, "We will need the assistance of the w^omen." Ho denied that tho charges were brought at the instigation of the hotelmen. Continuing, he said there was no hope for the new liquor act with such gross irregularities under the present license system. The license department had played fast and loose and the temporanco people had no faith in a fair trial for prohibition. He did not think the Be-langer and McDonald affidavits were any reply to the charge made by tho member for High River. Proceeding, Mr. Michener said thoy were going to have an Investigation, "Even to the extent of going to tho toot of the throne." He charged that tho govonimont was trying to hold up tho investigation until certain parties wanted as witnesses had a chance to disappear, Already he had heard of preparations being made by some to leave the country. To a demand for "names" Mr. Michener paid no heed, and proceeding, said he never hoard of tho Conservative party in this province having a campaign fund. Mr. Michener made vague allusions to employees giillty of offences and met with tho interruption from tho premier that It ho "metiht government employees, he had to say government employees." .^.'Says Sifton Kaiserlstic Mr.'Wichener did not-say, but proceeding, charged the premier with being "Kaiserlstic." Mr.' Marshall: "If KalserlHtlc, why did ho' submit tho prohibition hill Mr, JVIIohenar: "I'm not dlBousslng thatuiiiostlon," Continuing, ho said it haf be.ep , "common lcnowledgo"*;ifot years qf tho uiihoiy rolatlonsbetwgori the hotelmen and tho govornmoiit and Us-ittlilehls.. .Mr. - MlcUoner said'the people .j'widuld no', longer stand tor. gru^tti'tV which the' premier roplled heartllir, "hoar, hour," Continuing, the opposition leader Indulged,: In^ gepernl ,_do.nupolatlon pf the govoramotit'ilViithbroughly-corrupt In all its'delihrtWents. Thoro was grave ahaplcion agnffiBt the rajlwtty and telephcfno-deptitttments and tho attomey-goh'ernl's department hwA been conducted nlongiTnn!imany.mot](i-ods and worse. That jkvaSAvhy the gov-orninout was returned to power. Mr. Sifton: "I'll toll you why. The people didn't believe you." 1^1 r. Michener charged that the Liberal party was returned by the use of "vast campaign funds and machine politics." Ho thought a Bovornmcnt should conduct business irrespective of party. If the government refuses a royal commission the better class of Liberals would force it to, and if not It would go to tho country with these "grave .charges hanging over their heads.''' Hon, Mr. Cross Hon. C. W. Cross, who had exieu-slvo notes prepared, did not deliver tho speech. Ho would keep It until there was something definite to reply to. Mr. Cross said ho wouldn't sny tho charges wero not serious. Ho was prepared to accept them In a most serious mood. The most serious charge In Ills estimation was tho one alleging that prosecutions had boon sliriod by money. Over ten years ago he was appointed uttprney-gencral ot Albortn. He considered tho appolnlmcnt very seriously before accepting and had decided on one course of conduct. He, was a young practising barrister from Ontario and caiuo west with a deep impression ot the seriousness of the resiKinsIbillty lor the enforcement ot criminal law. He - had made up his mind to enforce thelaw without tear or favor and so far as the admluls trations of criminal law la conconitd no man could look Into his face and say that ho had ever stifled pi-osecu tlon of any Hind or chai-acter. Every proctlslng lawyer In Alberta would know such a charge was not true. Ho was a keen party politician -and struck hard blows when necessary, but no man could accuse hlni with stifling any tirosecutlon. Continuing, Mr. Cross said. "I ask Dr. Stanley, no matter what becomes ot this Investigation,; to give mo or the premier one charge, or it ho lacks confidence In us, to hand it to any crown prosecutor, to any barrister or give It to my hon. friend tho junior member for Edmonton. Jlr. Ewing. and lot hlra start criminal prosecution. If he has iuiormalion ot any man stifling prosecution he can liave as many lawyers as ho wants at tho expense ot the crown and conduct the prosecution before any judge In Alberta." No Specific Charge -Mr. Cross said ho ivns disappointed that the member tor High River had not made a specific charge. Tie would promise that if a specific charge were made it would be Investigated by this government. There was no personal charge made. It there Is a charge that he personally had received a cent of money from any license he would_\ery soon give tho iiuiu making tlie charge all the Investigation ho wants. Concluding, Mr. Cross said ho would reserve further remarks until something more detinito was forthcoming, and apologized for a personal explanation. When ho entered politics ten years ago he was pretty wealthy. Now any one who know ot his private affairs knew that every piece of property he ever owned was tied up by a mortgage lo one ot the banks In Edmonton. It would take ten years ot real hard work to pay oft the debts he owes. A. F. Ewing, Edmonton, replying to tho attorney-general, opened hla speech with the following significant sentence: "In reply to the attorney-general that there is no personal charge I say that he is absolutely correct. We have purposely taken away any suggestion that would reflect, upon the personal honor of any member of tho government." For Party Advantage This statement met with hearty applause, from the government side, and continuing, Mr. Ewing declared that the charges were made for party advantage. Troubles under liquor license acts were not confined to Alberta nor to any one proifjnco. Proceeding, .Mr. Ewing dealt with the modus operandi of granting license to show that with the policy of reduction carried out, a license to sell liquor became very valuablo and presented a'temptation to otter a bonus. He did not think it customary to ex poet a prosecutor to divulge his ovi deuce. Mr. Sifton, Inlerrupting, said there was no request tor the evidence, what was asked was that a charge bo nJado against some person or persons. Air. Ewing, replying argued to show that Dr. Stanley's ' char.iics were not criminal charges, hence court proce Sufferad ToM Until She . Tried "FruMves'?

Ho argued at � length on the legal procedure aspect ot the case and taking up the al'tidav-its read by tho proniier, contended that they did not disprove the charge, being skilfully worded documents. Hu cited the Davison Comnilsslon hk proof of invofitigation without specific, charges. No one replying tor tho government, Messrs. Hoadley and Kemmls spoko presenting no new arguments and at six o'clock Patterson of Macleod, rose to move the adjourn-, ment, when the premier remarked that it was necessary to do so, and the debate would proceed automatically at 8 o'clock. At the night sitting It was all over in thirty minutes. Patterson, Macleod; Patterson, Peace River, and Tweedle, Calgai-y, spoko briefly. Mr. Tweedle condemned the position taken by tho government and said if tlie charges wero made .igalnst him he would consider ho had a good case tor libel. Mr. Tweodlo also contended that the affidavits were only superficial evidence and did not refute the charges. He .said it might be true that Conservatives received campaign contributions from individual hotelmen but there was nothing wrong In that. The wrong comes In contrlbul,ionfi from them as an association and lii forced subscriptions ranging all the way \ from $100 to $1,000. No member of the house but would be glad to sOe tho atlorney-genorul cleared and the government should glvo every facility for an liivnstlgatioii. The dlv^ion resulted In a straight party vote, 14 tor and :m gajnst.
