They will ship a carload ot seed grsln from their home farm and will DON'T BE AN INCOME TAX SLACKER. There seems to be a disposition on the part of some people to misunderstand tlie new Income tax, hoping that refusal to try to understand the return-fonns will be an aid in escaping the tax. Such a procedure will avail them very little, for just as are the slackers under the military service act being sifted out, so will the slackers under the income tax be brought to time. People ot Canada may just as well realize right now that this country is engaged in a war that Is costing an Immense amount of money. Out national debt today Is around the two billion mark and the Interest charges must be kept up. These charges are not going to drop down out of Heaven. ,Th'e people must "dig up" if, Canada Is to hold her head up In-this fight for democracy. in such work were he not Involved in police duties. A nit loss of $25,000 in a fire which might have been prevented were the duties of the two departments not combined under one head would go a long way towards paying the cost of a separate police department. These are some of the things the people are thinking following the fire and they are worthy further consideration. DEBATE SO FAR REVEALS LITTLE. The debate on the speech from the Throne in the Dominion House was very short, and really reveals very little, but from the available reports, ihe Opposition led by gir Wilfrid Laur-ler Is inclined to be very critical. The people of Canada will not be averse to this campaign of the small minority of Laurier-Llberals provided they do not grow needlessly critical and obstruct necessary war legislation. The people of Canada are not In a mood fir needless obstruction these days. They want tho business of the country trans-meted with intelligence and dispatch, and with the least possible expense. Supporters ot the Union government believe this will be effected, and the Herald professes to believe that Sir .|yil(rid Laurler realizes the desires of . ^be' "people and' will aid; His great (ask win be to keep his volatile foU lowers In bounds. That he will have JrouWe in doing so Is indicated by JHoh, Chas. Murphy's far-fetched at-([fck on Hon. N. W. Rowell. The indl-cations, iowever, are for a sjiort ses-|llon during which much business will be disposed ot. .^HEEPMEN MOVE IN BIGHT DIRECTION. i The Herald is glad'to note that tho ,^embers of the Southern Alberta l^ool Growers' association at their . atinual convention here last week yptad to hold a rani sale nextsOotober ^der the auspices of the association. jWe consider this one ot the wisest amoves the sheepmen have made In A'long time'. It is evident that they ^^e alive to the tact that breeding has inuch to do with the building up ot !ood bands of wool and mutton sheep, nd they are ready to go about it in a c.iwperatlvo way, just as they have i^pne about attaining success in the marketing ot their annual wool clip. Vi^uth^rn Alberta leads Canada In vlteep and wpol production, and the Introduction of an annual ram sale at Ji^t^brldge,^ under the auspices of the sm'clatlbn.'Wlli.'do much to strength n the district In Its position. The Herald believes It can bespeak for the sheepmen in this project tho heartlestl co:op9ratlon pt the f^lr bpardty^ho will help to make the sale dupoess In every way. It may be a - U'ttJe eavly in "the Bi^mq to hold a spring stock show and sule in Letl\-'bftdgo,'but an annual ram sale can bo UKd^tt great success THE COMMAND OF THE SEAS. ' "The Winnipeg Free Press thinks that the shipping problem occupies today the relationship to ultimate victory that the munitions problem assumed In the first two years ot the war. The provision of the new tonnage required to make good the losses sustained by the Allies, were the submarine menace already removed, would be a heavy task. But the submarine Is not conquered, and it Is not expected by the most optimistic ot authorities to be definitely held until the month of August. And such estimates are, as bitter experience has proved, far from reliable. Victory for Germany by submarine activity is still on the cards. An inconclusive peace forced on tho Democratic Alliance by food shortage in Europe and inability to transport the X'nited' States armies to France w:ould be tantamount to complete defeat in the field ot battle, ilore. It would leave the German submarine master of the seas. The Allies are undoubtedly invincible on the surface, but until a satisfactory naval method disposing of the submarines has been discovered and applied that nation which possesses to bo between fifteen hundred and two thousand acres under cultivation, using tho most up-to-date machinery for this purpose. It is also rumored that they will remove their livestock to the new ranch and possibly increase their holdings very largely In this line. Mr. Jas. S. Jacobs of Bradshaw & Jacobs, Caldwell, is a son-in-law ot Mr. Malmberg's, who recently spent a week or so with .Mrs. Jfalmberg at tho Caldwell ranch. Doubtless the successful efforts of the ranchers like Mr. Jacobs, who are located to the west ot Cardston, had something to do with Mr. Malmberg's Interest In the big south country. The deal was put through by Messrs. Calrncross & Sons and Carl Williams of Cardston, while Mr. R. V. Potter ot Potter-Clover-Watson Co., Calgary, was Mr. Malmberg's confidential broker In this transaction. Thus, another big ranch of the older times passes to new hands. Being only five or six miles from Spring Coulee that busy burg will eOWUD, HEARS The site of the old Martello Tower in Point Pleasant Park at Halifax has been recommended to the naval authorities as the most suitable for the Royal Canadian Naval College, which is now located In Kingston. The Dally Mail says that Baron Pirrlo, chairman ot the Harland and Wolff shipping commission, has been ottered the post of minister of merchant shipbuilding. This offer Was made after a co^ferenc* with Sir Brio Geddes, first lord of the admiralty. N. G. McCallum, 68, pioneer of the Northwest Territories, died at Nelson.

Without control ot the seas. In face of an enemy as unscrupulous apd ruthless as Germany, the first line of defence ot the British Ehuplre ceases to exist Thus the continuance ot the war becomes on this count alone, a matter ot life or death to the British Empire. The shipbuilding problem has, by comparison, only a negative bearing on the- case. The resources which will enable the Democratic Alliance to build ships faster than the submarines can sink them may in time checkmate the submarine. " But that solution leaves the qViestlon ot naval supremacy still open, since the mobilization of additional facilities by Germany, or the faUuref ot some material or energy essential to rapid construction, would entail its loss by the Allies. . The task of building ships as rap idly as possible la one to be attacked by every conceivable agency. Without ships tlie whole Allied system, of offense and defence must crumble and- disintegrate. But the guarantee of permanent peace consists In -the defeat of Prusslanlsm as embodied In Its military machine on land and in the naval monstrosity upon wlilch it relies for sea-power. , Are you ready for your spring drive -on that back yard garden?
