A. Buchanan John Torrance Managing Director Business Manager Your King and Country Need You Right Now hound the circle of the war Tlie gains which the Germans have made at Verdun have come to them oniy at a great cost of life. To gain thlr objectives the'German leaders launch the infantry in solid masses at^the French lines, and their casualties pile up ut' an enormous rate. Tttpsday night brought lltUe change inithe situation at Verdun. In the Clpimpagne sector the French have re^iained aome trenches. The German government has reiterated its attitude with regard to thjs submarine warfare and has informed the United States government tovthls effect, and that it holds that the^- present international law makes no?'provision for submarine warfare. 'Rumors and predictions of a coming naval fight are still prevalent, one Geirman report having It that Prince Henry of Prussia will take the Hun fleet out to battle shortly. ;^wede& has protested to the German government against the laying of mines in Swedish waters. A report is current that Enver Pa-.sha, Turkish minister of war, is dead. compulsory giving for patriotic fund .Saskatchewan is the first province in'^Canada to introduce compulsion in the matter of the Patriotic Fund. A bin is now before the legislature of that province which; -wlU. result in placing one mill tax on ail property for/JPatriotlc Fund purposes. While'we in Lethhrldge have done nobly *y the fund, and would probably much rather see it continue oh the voluntary system than along the Saskatchewan plan, nevertheless we must take into account that there are hundreds of men who are ahle to pay Uut who do not pay, while it must also he remembered that the number of married men enlisting is increasing at an enormous rate, that every married man who enlists makes one more family dependent on the Patriotic Fund and one less to help pay the bill, and that the job is getting just about the limit of Jthe voluntary giving stage. It should be put on a solid basis, with no guess-work about it. Under the Saskatchewan system men. joining the ranks will feel that they need have no fears that the Patriotic Fund will ever face a lack of funds. jhb stanley charges and a "royal commission ; It is fluite likely that opposition journals will now say that Premier ^Slfton and his colleagues are afraid i to appoint a royal commlsslou to in-iyest'igate the charges made by Dr. Stanley in the Alberta house on Tuesday.' But neither the charges them 1 selves'' or the ma.nne/ In which they Iwerebrought in would appear to warrant audb procedure. As the premier ihimself very ably pointed out, pro-ceiva^ipT roy;al-commission!-would In this' case ;be unparliamentary, but he was wifllng to ijlace any other rma-chingn'lin the^^'province In-the hands of l^^ibppoBiUoii to carry on :their -enaulwi' V, " i.� '- " I>i5;^,S.tanley  and - hjsf- colleagues to the jleft' of the speaker want a: royal cominiB|ion to! make fa; probe in the' liope-''thBt something will he braught out derogatory to the Sifton adminis tratloB, The best thing they can do under the circumstances, therefore, i would"; be to make a. definite, charge i that some member of the government r participated in some of the graft at 'which-they talk so much.
