TELEPHONES: OUR POINT OF VIEW Business Offlce Editorial Office W.A.Buchanan Managing Director BuBines. Manager ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The Allies are paying the price of [heir costly, though effective, cam paign in the Dardanelles. Yesterday news came of the sinking of the fourth British warship by Turks, aud niiiHslT following upon th eheels of that announcement comes ihe news of the torpedoing of the Majestic, an- other British man-of-war. The loss of life on these, however, has been Blight. The progress ot the Allied campaign here appears to be satis- factory. The Italians are giving evid' tnce of their fightinr ability in the manner in which they are pressing home their early offensive move- ments on Austrian soil. Already sev- eral importanl Auslrian towns are In imminent danger of capture. The Germans are following their old tactics in northern France of hurling great masses of men down "Whilo It Is the saddest mo- ment of my life to see a comrade fall, either dencl or wounded, bo- side me. yet when 1 think of our glorious cause, It seems but to strengthen my determination to put forth every effort so that this cause may prevail." This is an excerpt from the lafct lelter wrUk-n by Major Bennett of Peterboro. who was recently killed In action. What better tribute could we want !o our men. They are not fighting for glory, nor for the sport of the thing, but for the principles which stand out so principles of justice, freedom and the maintenance of solemn treaties, long as our officers and men are sti ulated with the purpose of bringing those principles to victory, there _jed he no fear about the ultimate result. The principles will prevail. fKl'IT SALT." FRIDAY, MAY 28, 1915 It must be kept in mind that tbe irrigation system in the Lethbridge district has never been attacked or criticised from the standpoint that irrigation could not be practiced suc- cessfully in this part of the province. Irrigated farming in this district has been a distinct success: the eviden- ces are here to bear out this state- ment. While criticisms liave .been made in the direction that irrigation impracticable in another part of Province, this criticism does not hurng grea rovnce, upon the Allied lines, with appalling in any waj. to tne Lethbridge waste oi life, but with apparently .very little effect The solid wall oi the Allied defence wavers but little before this tremendous onslaught. WHEN WILL THE WAR END? When will the war end? is a very frequent question. We have as little idea now as we had months ago. Lloyd George recently declared: "In this war it is the nation that endureth to tbe end that will win. How long will the war last? That is question asked oJ me .repeatedly- That question was put lo Abraham Lincoln in .another war, full o tri- umph. Ml of vicissitudes, lull of mo- ments of depression. -When will this war said some one to him, and his answer 'We accepted this war for an object, a worthy object, and the war will end when it Is at- must be the sentiment of ev- ery true-hearted Britisher today Un- der God, I hope it will never end un- til that time comes." It is that spirit of determination so forcibly expressed by the Chancellor of the" Exchequer that will win the war. As he says, the war will not end until that spirit overcomes the enemy. A highly intelligent and well-In firmed obierver of the progress of the war is J. L- Girvln, the eminem English journalist. Writing less than a month ago he did not give much cheer to who anticipated an early close of- struggle. In his review of war events in the London (England) Observer, he said: "The idea that the war will be ove by summer Is a pernicious illusioi which it is essential to destroy.
