Your King snd Country need you right nowl THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Following their belated organization of a munitions department, the Ger- mans claim that they are now able to meet and check the attacks ot the allies ou the western front. They admit having been caught napping the matter ot munitions, and claim now that they can equal the allies in guns and material. Nevertheless, al- lied advances continue on the Somme front. The progress has been some- what slower during the past few- weeks, but the British and French are gradually but surely pounding their way into Bapaume and Peronne. The success which has attended the Kumanlan allies on the Transylvaniaa front is continuing and the Teuton armies are still in retirement. A new Russian leader. Gfin. Sakharoft, a bril liant military genuis, Is to take com mand of the forces in Dobrudja. which leads to a new hope that the Teutons Trill shortly be entirely driven from the ground they have gained on the upper Danube. The announcement of a new Italian offensive with the capture of large numbers of prisoners, and also Ser Man successes on the Macedonian front, were features of. yesterday's .-war news. GOOD METHOD OF RAISING PATRIOTIC MONEY Whitford, a constituency in northern Alberta, populated almost wholly by people from Central Europe. Is not going to permit any shirking in con- ributions to tho Patriotic Fund. At a joint meeting of all tho councillors and secretaries of the local improve- ment districts, it was decided to make a levy of five dollars on each rjuarter- ectlon. This levy, it was pointed out. s not a tax. but It was thought to be he most equitable way of raising a fund which would bo worthy of the constituency. Each councillor and each secretary s n ives than Liberals on a non-partisan onimittee." is a of a local improvement district i committee ot one on behalf of the Patriotic Fund. Each owner a quarter-section is handed a note form filled in as follows: "On or before 1st January. 1317. I promise to pay to John A. McDongail, treasurer of North ilberta Canadian Patriotic Fund, or order at the office ot secretary-treasur- ot Local' Improvement District i the sum of five dollars for value received." In this is hoped to raise at ten thousand dollars. The set- tlers are not limited" to five dollars per quarter-section, and "many, it is ex- pected, will give a" good deal more than that. Lieut. F.

The Editor Lethbrklgo Herald, have noticed your squib in your issue ot the 30th entitled "Inter- est dead In the .Municipal Election. In the seeming lack of Interest 1 would bo in sympathy with you: but don't you think you are complaining too soon. As you say. the election ia about six weeks away, which gives lots of time yet for (lie people to dis- play their interest and convictions. But perhaps they realize that they cannot improve on present conditions ana want to let well enough alone. If your article had not referred to the personal matter of the expenses of the two commissioners' trip to the east as if it were some great secret or some underhand work, 1 would not have, taken any further notice of it. The two commissioners went east to meet four objects: (a) To: attend a Convention of Can- adian" in Montreal. It brought about this result. Commission houses which arrange Inter-provincial transactions iiquor are to be put out of business in Mani- toba, it was announced by the attor- ney-general's department. An amend- ment to the Manitoba temperance act will be introduced at the nest session of the legislature making it for commission houses to import Minor for customers. It is expected that about 50 stand ard hotels in Toronto will be closed Ian uini.. encies. It is an equitable method of raising money-, and .it reaches the venUons. Her citizens "and rulers would bo better posted on municipal affaire, and the city would be better advertised where she should be well known. (b) To thoroughly investigate the matter of water filtration and the best appliances and plant built for that purpose, so that the city might feel it was not trifling with the ex- lendlture of I do not feel that any mistake was made in this respect. The city now knows that there are several different filter plants built by different firms on silently different mechanical ar- rangements, all of which in the sum total have about the same merit MADE IN CANADA 80MI OF ITS U8B11 For maklnc Map.

(c) To sell treasury notes to get the money to build the filter plant. In the past in selling bonds there has not been a single case where- we were not able to get a better price by go- ing east and dealing directly with the bond brokers than could be gotten by corresnondence. In each case more whether he could improve the price by personal interviews with the bond brokers, and failed to get the better price, lie would feel in an awkward position about the expense of the trip. When lie maltos the better price stick j covers more than the cost of the trip, then he has no conscientious scruples about, requiring the city to pay the full cost of the actual ex- penses. This is my position absolute- ly with regard to expenses. I have never spent a dollar of the city's money where ample returns were not made. Now, 10 recapitulate, so that the matter may be made clear in a few words. The trip cost the two commissioners about each, of which they charg- ed up J4SO each. The tnn saved on the trea- sury note sale and 5500.00 on the pumping engine. There were other savings, but as they are involved with the filter con- shirker. PATRIOTIC FUND ECONOMICALLY ADMINISTERED The shirker, who wants to avoi giving a cent to the Patriotic Fund I excuses himself on the .ground that th fund is being expensively .jadminis r tered. Only a down-right shirker woult put forward such a reason; There ar criticisms of the" administration of the fund but most oj them fall to the ground when investigated. Too mans are ready to accept as true all Insinu ations against patriotic men and wo men who are giving their time, with-j out charge to tliis fund. They want to believe those criticisms for the sake of finding an excuse not to give. Fortunately the excuses they would offer in connection with-the Patriotic Fund have no foundation. Out of every contributed to the fund over S99 reaches the soldiers' wives. The cost of. administration is about 60c on tlie hundred dollars. No insti- tution. business, church, charitable or patriotic society could be handled more economically. In Lethbridge, where many thousands of dollars have been handled, there is only one salaried person connected with the fund, and 1, that is the young lady in the local office of the fund. No shirker can make an excuse of expensive administration. He will j! have to think np something else, likely i also to find that it doesn't amount to anything either.
