NO TIME NOW FOR AGITATORS. Hon. Duncan Marshall spoke right sut In meeting in Calgary yesterday in an. address on Greater Production when, he said that agitation for shorter hours and higher wages for farm labor-was criminal at this time when the boys who are withstanding the Hun assaults at the front are working .'4 hours a day if necessary at a thousand times the risk of life. The Herald has found that farmers satisfied they are getting a good ;>ri e for their wheat and other pro-ihtv, bur. they strongly object to any i.'.V W. agitation which only results in iiiJifttled condition of farm labor .it a time when the greatest con-��-'"rartu efforts are needed to meet the call -or increased food production. 'As t: rule the farm hands understand 'the situation also, and are willing to do their share but there are a few agitators going about stirring up the men to demand higher wages and shorter hours. There is one way to deal with these fellows, and the government should not be slow in taking It. THE HOUSING SITUATION AGAIN. The board of trade has come to a realization that Lethbridge is underbuilt in the way of hotel and housing accommodation, reversing the situation in 1914 and 1915 when the cry-was that we were overbuilt. If, having come to this realization the board caa do anything to find a solution for dut dilemna the public in general will be pleased. The Herald has called attention to the housing situation time and again this spring, We realize its seriousness. Solid growth of the city, to which it is entitled, is being retarded owing to the combination of cir cumstances. Just what this nieann may better be understood by consideration of the clty'3 publicly-owned utilities'. Were the city to expand as the business now centering here warrants its expansion, it would not be long before every utility would he paying its way and a tax reduction would be possible. And that is the most insignificant of the losses occasioned by our Inability to house the new population we need to look after our growing business. It is w.-.j that the board has taken action, and v. e hope it obtains results. ALLIES MUST DEMAND i TON FOR TON. "Ton for ton" is the demand of the New York Times in answer to the German submarine campaign. And it i is supported by "The Navy,'' the of-] ficial organ of the Navy League of the i British Empire. "The Xavy" ---v^c-s I the following from the Times as �et-. ting forth what should. be the aiued aim: "The Allies in general, and the Am-' erican people in particular, should never lose sight of the fact that the ruthless campaign waged by Germany against, all shipping, whether belligerent or neutral, has two very' distinct and diiferest objects in view. |one military, the other sordidly com-I mercial. The first is to prevent the  shipment across the Atlantic of , troops, supplies and munitions. It is j the barbarous methods by which this purpose is sought to be achieved, rather than the purpose itself, that all . civilization resents. "Germany's second object is so shocking, so repulsive in its nature, that only the most positive evidence justifies belief in its existence. It is cynically admitted, although not "vj.K? proclaimed, that she means, as far as possible, to destroy every' ves-s.-i ::-w afloat, n-j matter under what flag, so that, at the end of the war, shr. alone among the nations, shall possess a numerous mercantile marine with which she calmly proposes to secure a practical monopoly of the world's seaborne commerce. To this end she is building merchantmen as  fast as her war needs permit. "In consequence o: this monstrous programme, it is imperatively neces-car>/ to create in all the countries at war with Germany a public opinion and demand which, in the expected event of her defeat, shall impel the negotiators of peace to see to it that Germany shall replace, ship for ship. I or ton for ton, or pay the cost of re-i placement, as the Allies may prc-! scribe, every merchant vessel of the I Allies unl&Vi-fulh- sunk by her sub-' marines during the war. In this way, I and in this way only, can she be ; taught that her revolting inhumanity-does not pay. "Another reason for this indispens-: able condition in the terms of peace is to prevent her piratical and murderous use of this new weapon from becoming a precedent in future wars. This reason by itself will abundantly i warrant a procedure which. otherwise, might appear to savour of re-  venge and unnecessary harshness. \ "It is, indeed, barely possible that,  if brought-home to her, a knowledge � of this resolve by her enemies would somewhat tend to curb her lust for i sinking merchantmen and drowning I women and children." Magrath Is stirred up over the attempted burning of the residence of one of the members of the military service tribunal, it looks to be a case where the secret service should make -ome investigations.

Austrian or even French diploma'.!' reviews in spite of their im-pit*ins personalities and political successes Only the German and American ambassadors attracted public attention. A Blow to The Kaiser Loiflom March -S.-The personal memorandum of Prince Lirhnowsky revealing the inner working of German diplomacy and which had caused much feeling in Germany against the former ambassador to Great Britain leaked out last summer through the German general staff on the fall of Chancellor Von Bethmann Hollweg. This statement is made by the Socialist Vorwaerts of Berlin and is published by the Times which also reprints from the Yorwaerts the most important points of the memorandum. In an editorial on the disclosures of the prince, the Times says:  "By a coincidence, as strange as it is opportune, passages of the memo in which the former German ambassador fixed the guilt for the war upon his own government reach us as ths fiercest and bloodiest conflict U at its height. The moment when mankind is filled with horror \and anguish at the carnage of the great battlefield, all eyes will turn to his account of the policy which brought this dread visitation upon the world. "He has not a shadow of doubt about responsibility for the war. "Without hesitation he fastens it on Germany. The German militarists were inexorable. They woujd not suffer Count Berchtold to give way: When he flinched from plunging Europe into war they forced his hand. They delivered an ultimatum to Russia and the next day declared war on her although the Russian emperor had pledged his word that while the negotiations continued not a man should march. " 'We deliberately destroyed the possibility of a peaceful settlement' is the former ambassador's considered judgment. lie cannot feel surprised that 'the whole civilized world outside Germany attributed to us sole guilt for the world war.' The whole story which lie records corroborates this judgment and cannot be. reconciled with any other. in-itvhkul ;ributtng st.itaui at Stratford.
