Activity is now being shown on the fronts in the far east. In .Macedonia the allied force* have had various successes, and in Mesopotamia fur-'ier successes over the Turks have been recorded. Allied raids on the western front continue with success. On the Italian front the Italians have gained further victories over the Austrian forces. western city.

In Snekatchovran and Alberta there are billions of ton.s of coal, much of good quality, and assurance has been given by various operating companies lliat they can meet tl^ prairie demands. If such is possibli and the Government should bo able to see th.Tt' delivery Is made, surely It is the duty of all westerners to co-operate in every way they can to  alleviate the strain on ea.'dcrn demands.

The Herald has pleasure lishing the following letter Monday by Mayor Hardie; Editor, Lethbridge Herald, Sir,-Replying, in part, to your editorial on the auto garbage truck. In your Saturday issue, please let me say a few days ago I handed your re-oresentative two letters with the request that they be published and given the same prominence your strictures on the garbage truck were given. It" you had done- so, there would be no need, for some time at least, tor any further statement as they would have made everything connected with Uie truck perfectly plain to our citizens, and would have proved that it was or would be maide O.K. by the manufacturers at no further cost to the city. But you garbled these letters to suit your own purpose and gave a very improper and misleading news ueiji instead of the letters to the public. If you will publish this letter and give myself and our citizens assurance in a foot note to it of your own guaranteeing that you . will publish everj-lhing I write over my signature. miners are far from being all alien enemies, ns many recklessly contend. In fact, it is stated by those who have invosttgated that the majority are British born and English speaking. The mine operators are responsible people and should at least be given credit lor first-'hnnd kniowledg� ot liow much dependence may be placed on the men in their employ. We do not e.vpect a continuation of Winnipeg'.-; opposition to being forced to depend on Alberta coal. In fact from now on we expect to hear the Winnipeg press thanking goodness tiiere is Alberta coal to depend on. For C. A. .Magrath, Canadian Ftiel Controller, told Winnipoggers some plain facts the other- 'iy. Pennsylvania anthracite, on which the Manitoba capital has always depended for Jieat is now going to France-every pound of It that can be spared. And it there is any left over, Italy needs it. Italy is so short ot coal that the nation's forests are being cut down for domestic'" fuel. What little coal Great Britain can spare to Italy must be used for munitions factories and military transportation. So. after all, Winnipeg's claim on Pennsylvania anthracite is very slim indeed. AVla' nipeg will do well not to repudiate Alberta coal. It will come in handy next w^inter. alcohol. drinking wod THE DANGERS OF A PREMATURE PEACE. Believing that the Germans will fail on their western offensive, the next great blow of which is likely to fall at any minute, the Allies are telling their people to beware of a new Hun peace offensive the follow the failure. Ex-President Roosevelt, discussing I the dangers of a premature peace, strikes the nail on the head, as he go often does, when he aays "Let us never forget that no promise Gar-mans make can be trusted." If the world, remembering Belgium, will are scraps ot paper, then there is no danger ot a premature peace, no matter how insistent the Httn peace offensive. Continuing the discussion, Roosevelt declares: There are strong indications that Germany may be prepared, it' she without changing a jot or tittle of it. j now falls on the western front, to 1 shall be glad to reply to your ir- abandon all that for which she has regular and' untruthful representa-i f�?'f'l^^,i^^ ^^^^^^^^ tion about the auto garbage truck.

It Mayor Hardie will refer to page 3 of the issue of The Herald ot Wednesday. May l.jth, he v,-ill tlnd the two letters he refers to above. The that In middle Europe and in the east there is no Interference with her. In other words, she would be prepared ],to give back Aleace and Lorraine to France, to give Itallo-Austria to ^aly, to give Luxemburg to Belgium, and to let ,the Allies keep the colonies they have conquered, on condition that heri| dominance in Russia and In the Balkans, her dominance ot the subject ....wo "-people of Aust;ia\through the Aus- � mayor IS just five days late in his ac- trian Hapsburgs. and her dominance of western Asia through her vassal . cusatiou. And further, The Herald invites Mayor Hardie to name a single, solitary, specific instance In -which The }J�rald has failed to publish letters lie has sent to the Herald under his own signature. The mayor is very fond of accusing Tiie Herald of "garbling" his statements. Let ua assure him we will not garble any statement he may care to send us showing wherein 6tir figures, published . Saturday, i dealing with the coat of ; sarbago truck operation, are wrong. nel and struck him on the* head. Mr. J. A. Rowland, for the past two years manager of the Royal Bank, Tweed, was presentoronto Saturday night takes up the cudgels on behaU ot the Alberta -coal-mining industry which has been � the subject ot attack by the Winni-i^peg papers since it was learned the ,-,oity ot Winnipeg would have to de-;j)vaA principally on Alberta coal dur-|jijg the coming winter. This is the jway the Saturday Night sizes up the 'IVlnnlpoff opposition to the scheme: " The amazing manner in which so awny CanadlanB readily express lack of faith in this country's ability to '> iitand more on Its own feet through tbo (development of our own rich QStural raaources is pathetic. The fuel altmitlou is a case in point. (iWJnoJpeir is becoming bysterical ' 't)f%(ix the posBibiUty of a coal famine �tet wipter, due to the proposed em-^arso an Pennsylvania anthracite.

Would not i)le more sensible course be to do la^ia "c^'t be done" shouting from boHMtops and set about arranging for as many substitutes aa I>o*-flUd^ I^^*" *� fi**' '�mlne next wfttter, In Winnipeg or any other state. Turkey, should be left undisturbed. To the average American, and probably to the average Englishman and Frenchman, there la much that Is alluring in such a program. , It might be urged as a method of stopping the frightful slaughter ot war, while securing every purpose for which the ^ free peoples who still tight are fighting. Yet ik would be infinitely bet-j ter that this war were carried on to the point of exhaustion than that we yfSld to such terms. Such terms would mean the definite j establishment of German's military ascendancy on a scale never hitherto approached In the civilized -world. It would mean that perhaps within a dozen years, certainly within the lifetime of the ivery men now fighting this war. this country and the other free countries would have to choose between bowing' their necks to the German yoke or else go Into another war under conditions far more disadvantageous to them. A premature and Inconclusive peace now would spell ruin, for the world, just as In 1664 a premature and incon-clusiva peace -ir'-i.ld have spelled ruin to the United States, and in the present Instance the United States would share the ruin ot the rest ot the fre^ peoples ot mankind. Concluding his article Bx-Presldent Rposevelt sets a high aim for the Allies when he says; We must guard against any slackening ot eflort. Wo must refuse to accept any premature peace or peace other than the peace of overwhelming victory. We' must secure such complete freedom for the people ot central Europe and wia^tern-Asia as will whatter tor-' ever the throaj. of Gorman world domination, Our honorable obligations to our alUqs, our loyalty to our own national principles, the need to protect our American neighbors, the need to defend 6ur own land and people and our hopps for the peace and happiness of our ctiUdion's children all forbid ns to accept an ignoble and Inconclusive peace CROSS KEEPS UP Cardston, May 21.-Our Red Cross workers have excelled themselves since tlfo month of May came in and the supplies sent fiway have exceeded in value and number, by far, any shipments that have yet been made In the history of the Red Cross in this district.
