The Italian offensive has developed (rapidly and the entire lsonzo front of the Austrians is fast being taken over by the Italians, who have captured a large number of prisoners and are making rapid progress toward Trieste.

Ger-! man promises have been broken. \ The plans of Germany against Rus- � sia are said to be developing into a! campaign with Petrograd as its object When the Sifton government ts counting on the slacker and the enemy of the allied cause to return it to power-as it certainly is doing when it brings on an election at the present time-those who do not belong to these classes have a plain duty to perform.-.-Kdmonton Journal. Which is an example of the dirty tactics to which the partizan Tory papers will stoop to defeat the present government and elect a Conservative government with Edward Mich-ener as leader. Thnt is the sort of journalism that sickens the intelligent reader and destroys the influence of the press. Why are not the slackers in uniform and why are not the enemies to the allied cause in the internment camps? Is it the fault of Premier Sifton. or the fault of Premier Borden? And how about the men-the petticoat vote, as these Tory journals describe them? Are they also slackers.

Its frayed nerves broke loose on Tuesday last, and brought forth an issue, as follows: \ There is involved iii the Alberta! contest the clean-cut issue as to whether British people are fo run their � own country, or whether, for the sake i i of keeping in office a miserable group of subsidy-hunting politicians, foreigners, even though of alien enemy birth, are to be courted for their franchise; �while Canadians wearing the uniform of their king are to be ignored.; That is the situation in Alberta today J That is the basis upon which Premier Sifton has called the present election, and by means of which he hopes to grab another lease of power. . That is the, principle for which Liberal candidates in Calgary and elsewhere ..must stand if they stand under the :Sifton banner. " ,! Probably the Calgary Herald will tell us why Leader Michener of the opposition has so studiously avoided .'any reference to this "issue"? Is it because Leader Michener is playing for the large foreign vote in his own constituency, and is wilUng to leave it to his henchmen to create a, stench by raising the question in ultra-loyal JCalgary? : Dr. Blow and T. M. Twe'edfe have cried aloud to Heaven against the ..alien enemy vote from the platforms fin Calgary during the campaign. They itell us how the Germans threw all .British into prison in Germany after -tfhe war broke out. Are the opposition candidates in favor of Hun tac-Uics being applied in Alberta? We ^invited these' people here. Those iSvho have become British citizens, are j-lentitled under our law and usage to i;the ballot. If. that law is wrong in ji^lberta it is wrong in every province rin Canada, and the "issue" at once ^becomes a matter for Federal- government action. - � Mr. Tweedle and Mr. Blow are both .much exercised � about the alien enemy vote today when there is a ''campaign in progress. Did they mention the "issue" at Edmonton during the last session? They did not. i-It suited them to wait until an elec-tion campaign was on and then make *'r sentimental issue of it. But their purpose will prove unavailing. Their present stand la too thin.. They ,a)o not sincere. They are merely playing on the feelings of the people. They have not done as ,Lieut. Joseph Stauffor, Liberal mem-;ber for Didsbury has done. Though of afien enemy ancestry and a married man with children, he put on the Hhaki, went to tho front and laid down' ills life for his country. That is the sort of man whom Messrs. Tweedle, Blow and their henchmen ai'o maligning tor petty party advan- In England Liberalism gave England a limited monarchy and constitutional freedom.
