THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR It is quite apparent that the new forces in the government in Russia [ easier will demand a peace as quickly pos-j which sible and a peace that will carry with it no annexations or no particular guarantees for the future. This is indicated by latest reports from Kus.-;a. mid her relation to the other allies in the war will be greatly affected !>.-" events which will occur witliii: 'he next short while, when the allies '.xi!! give Russia clearly to understand what their aims are to be is the war i.eme-. forth. In the meantime ditScuity is still being experienced iu cet:?s:� the soldiers along the Russia!', fronts under proper control. There is little but r.rtii'ery activity to report alone the western front and very littl On the F overseas are naturally concerned ! nhout is the matter of, the arrange-} nients being uu'de to fit tliein buck' into civil life on their return. Ami' the energy which has been brought j to benr by (he provincial government in this regard is a good augury for ilie future. More returned soldiers have been retrained for the civil service in Alberta than in all the other provinces of Canada put together. More men have been refrained or are at present pursuing their studies in provincial institutions than in all the provinces east of the Great Lakes put together. Alberta is the only province that is. as yet. retraining any men iu agricultural pursuits. Do you not think these things indicate that the government of the province of Alberta has the Interests of the soldiers at heart? Does this interest indicate that the government desires to "disfranchise the soldiers." And Hon. Mr. Marshall has a still broader vision of the future, of the time when the war will be ended, and our soldiers come home to u'ko up j the burdens of civil life. That is the ! time when Canada will begin to pay her war debt and her long list of pensions. How to make the burdens of all. including the returned soldiers, is one of the problems about the provincial government is thinking. Ami Hon. Mr. Marshall supplies the answer. Make the farms more productive, he says, by teaching p.-oi>;e. especially the boys and girls, how to farm. This the government is do;us at its agricultural schools and demonstration farms. Make the in-'crest rate easier so the farmers can get cheaper money on longer terms. >* PICKED UP IN* PASSING THE~BUSY MAN THE PAY OF THE K. J.

The Calgary Herald's contention that the Sifton government of Alberta -*s autocratic is as far as it can be from.-the truth. Is it not a democratic government .�which placed on the statute books the i Direct Legislation Act, a measure! intelligent This is the vision of the Alberta government with regard to the soldiers, the war and after-the-war problems. Compare it with the claptrap being handed out by every. Conservative speaker in this campaign, and the j contrast cannot help but impress the) elector. The Sifton Lieut. Guy R. Yerxa of Calgary, is officially stated to have won the Mili-i tary Cross in a previous engagement to that in which he fell mortally wounded. Lieut.-Col. B.B. Hepburn.

The Conservatives complained when the measure was before the House that it was nothing but a "Yankee institution which will wreck the constitution of the Dominion." The Liquor Act of 1915 was initiated by the people of the province, passed by them and handed on to the legislature to pass and the Sifton government saw to it that it was passed. Was that autocratic? The Siflon government gave the women of the province equal rights with men. Was that democratic? the province, for the day when the boys come home. The opposition seems to be content to confine its efforts to criticizing the government on the matter of the soldiers' vote and the alien vote, about which the soldiers at the front are making no fuss, being quite content with what the government has done. On their records in this campaign, which ' party should be returned to power on June 7th? The Sifton government should be returned and the | Sifton government will be returned.

The inference is that if you are not a Conservative you are a pro-German. Nice, irresponsible line of talk for a would-be premier of the province. lr-'-~ --- The real issue of the election, says Leader Michener, is the holding of an election during war time. But Manitoba, British Columbia, New Brunswick and three other provinces have held elections since the war broke out, and the fact of the elections being held in war time didn't seem to be much of an issue. Mr. Michener should guess again. THE GOVERNMENT AND THE SOLDIERS-THE OPPOSITION AND THE SOLDIERS- A CONTRAST. Opposition speakers and the opposition press which have been wailing about the soldiers' vote in a vain effort to raise sentimental prejudice against the Sifton government, would do well to read carefully what Hon. Duncan Marshall has to say about Alberta's attitude toward the soldiera. Alberta's soldiers are not greatly concerned about the mutter of representation in the legislature at the present time. There bus been on outcry from them such as is being raised for campaign purposes by Leader Michener and his cohorts. Iu fact, the word from Alberta's soldiers in the "trenches seisms .to indicate that the men-are greatly "pleased that they are to be allowed to both nominate arid elect two men from among themselves who will have no other interests in the House than those of the soldiers. liut what Alberta's soldiers now S.

At the same time he declares the government is so extravagant and incompetent that the public interests rerpilre that it should be turned out of office. On his own profession Mr. Michener was anxious to compromise with extravagance and incompetence for the price of two or three years' salary as leader of the opposition.
