Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 12, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta FACE FOUR LBTHBRlPGi'DAILY HEgALP THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12, We Xetbbribge letbbrtofle, Hlberta DAILY AND WEEKLY RATES BUW, per year.., BtUy. by mall, pw year.... by mall, per year.. 14.00 3.00 1263 1224 TELEPHONES Dislness Office Kditcrlsl W. A. Buchanan John Torranee Managing Director Business Manager THE PRESENT SITUATION The Germans have evidently met some success on their right, ac- cording to the latest reports, occupying tlie town of La Bassee in the canal district -where for' some little time past the "Battle of the Canals" has been raging. Allies, in conse- quence, have fallen back on Armen- tieres. The enemr is at tlie same time vigorously attacking Ypres, hop- ing to cut his way to Dunkirk south- ward of that district, the coast route being denied him. The temporary success in -this quar- ter is, however, by no means ilis- heartening. It is -the outcome of Kltchenert plan ot "attrition." Mili- tary experts will tell us that in the taking of positions more loss is sus- tained by the attacking than the de- fending forces. One position taken and a retirement of the defenders in- to another means n repetition of the vapor the other day the following edl tortal appeared: A reader of the Herald asks If It Is not queer that the peoples of India, Australia, Canada and South Africa ara fighting for Bug- land mid tile English. They aro not fighting for Eng- land and the English. They aro not lighting for Eng- land or the English. They are fighting for the British Empire, in which they foel they hnvo 'lust as deep an Interest as the English have. Of the significant developments of this great war this is by no means the least; If Canadians, Australians. Africans and Indians regarded themselves as conquer- ed by, or mere appendages to England, they would not be fight- ing at all. That's it. And we know further :hat if Germany was victorious, one of tlie first claims the .conqueror would make would bo to possess Can- ada. As long-as there is 0ght in us will, struggle against such' a pos- sibility.. An American can answer the question by.asking himself this one: "Would you likn to have the United States dominated by Germany and its His answer would be em- phatically "No." The freedom anil liberty possessed under the Stars and Stripes is too precious to lose, and so under tlie British flag Canada wants to remain forever. Britain has given us the freest form of self gov- ernment possessed by any country ic the She has protected and as- sisted us through our entire history, and we are going to help her now to the last man and the last dollar if .IJJSY W. a.

One means of employment ior the Austrians and Germans who to ibe held as prisoners of war in Canada is likely to be that of breaking .stones for use in road making.

It is to their advantage to hold the Germans for the time being in Belgium, and when the time is ripe, rout his forces there rather than allow an orderly retreat into his own territory. AUSTRALIA AND CANADA Thanks to an Australian battle- ,ahip, that wasp'Of. the seas, the German fast cruiser Emden has been pnt out of business. Thereat "the commerce of .neutral nations trading .'with the Allies will be immensely relieved and Canada profit .by the patriotic enter- pVise cf her sister Dominion. But they didn't have a Liberal Senate in..Australia to hamper the will of the Herald. When the measure providing for a navy of the character, of that now possessed by Australia 'reached' the Senate ot Canada in 1910, Senator Lougheed, then leader of the Conser Vf tive opposition .In the.

And as for finding men to man her after she is commissioned, that little Emden episode should give quite a fillip to. .recruiting. Major H. B. Brown of Cardston has offered his services to the Empire. Major Brown is one of Cardston's most popular and progressive young men, and as a former American, does his part to give the lie to the Kaiser's boast that Canada would not be loyal to Britain if the latter ever became involved in a. great European war. The Kaiser is'learning now that he has the whole British Empire to deal with, and naturalized Canadians like the Cardstou Major are loyal suib- Jects of that Empire. Tha proposal of the Dominion gov- effiuienTio help the farmers of South- ern Alberta by establishing demon- stration fields, within easy rewh of farmers uhere crops are grown under exactly- the same conditions as in the farmers' fiel'ds adjacent, is a good one. The plan has been tried in North Da- ing secured an order for iOO.OOO rifles from the British government.
