Your Country right you THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The sudden, swift move of the Bri- tish forces on the north-western end of their Somme lines, taking the Ger- mans completely off their guard, has captured for them Important ground swings their northern front into a line with, Courcelette, captured some time ago. A3 a result of the newest British gains, the allied front now pre- sents a straight line running from Combles through Martinpuich arid Courcelette clear to Beaumont-Hamel. which strongly defended position was taken by the British in their rush of Monday. The unexpectedness of the attack on the part o: the Germans -was respon- sible for large numbers of prisoners taken by the British, the latest state- ment estimating the number at 4000. In the Rumanian campaign there biltty as a responsible minister in n government. Ho talked too much. His tongue worked faster than his mllld. Ho was too egotistical. Ho boosted too much and belittled greater men than himself too frequently. It Is better for Canada, for the mtlltla, and certainly for tho government that Sir Sam Is abandoned. He had long ago lost his usefulness: he became obnoxious to most people. For the administration of the department since the war started up until the close of the Hughes regime, the Conservative party must accept all responsibility. They save Hughes the department to administer, and for all the shortcom- ings of his administration they must bear the blame. By changing horses now they cannot expect to shake off the graft and corruption and political manoeuvring which characterized the Hughes adminir-tration. Had they shaken off the encumbrance when the exposures were first made of his spendthrift conduct of the department oi militia they would have been strengthened, but they allowed Hughes to go merrily on. Then tho day came .-hen party exigencies demanded his, removal. They saw the clonds gather- ing and the party friends leaving the ship. It then became a choice be- tween Hughes and power, and power .__ unhesitatingly selected. The peo- ple will render their verdict later. Now watch the Tory defenders of Sam Hushes exalt the government for getting rid of him. Well, Sam Hughes sot a lot of honor out of the war. He began as a plain Colonel and ended as an Hon- orary Lt.-Oeneral and a Knight. There will be moanings at tho bar ot the Honorary Colonels when the news of Sam Hughes' disappearance arrives. THE IONIC THAT "Fnilt-a-tim" Builds Up HIE Whole System Those who take "Frult-a-tivcs" for the first time, are often astonished at the way it builds and mates bfller all over. They may bo taking "Fruit-a-tives" for somospooiflo disease, as Constipation, Indigestion, Chronic Headaches or Neuralgia, Kidney or Bladder Trouble, Rheu- matism or Tain in the Back. And they find when "Fruit-a-tives" has cured the disease, thai they feel better and stronger in every way. This is due to the -Misdtrful tonic properties at famous tablets, made from fruit juices.

RESPONSIBLE FOR WORST FEATURES OF, ADMINISTRATION It -wasn't graft; it wasn't waste; it -wasn't his intimacy with John Wesley Allison, the former honorary colonel of tainted memory; it wasn't Camp Borden; it wasn't the Hoss rifle; it wasn't his disgraceful treatment of General Lessard; no it was none of these that caused Lieut-General Sir Sam Hughes to be beSeaded. It was the General's assumption of power that overlooked his colleagues. It was his criticism of the British authorities in a recent speech at Toronto. It was hiB decision to change the Canadian Sir Sam Hughes' removal from the government is a sign of a Dominion election. The ship is being cleared of all the dead weights. Maybe Rogers will go next. The Toronto Telegram will certain- ly take the credit for getting rid of Sir Sam, Wouldn't be a bit surprised it it used a rooster over the announce- ment in its issue of yesterday. Will the papers and individuals that have continually exalted Sir Sam Hughes continue to do so now that he has been cast overboard? Not likely. They will drop the old idol for a new How would it be if the C. P. R. were to send an official of the passenger de- partment to Southern Alberta to take a few midnight trips on the Crow system without' train. Eleven coaches going west on Friday night! Trafflc so heavy trams both ways are invariably late! Surely consulting the government. It was these incidents of recent occurrence that drove Sir Robert Borden to the decision to cast Sir Sam overboard. Had the graft, and waste, the Allison associations, and the Camp Borden scandal, and the ROSE rifle been to blame, Sir Sam would have been out of the government long ago. This record of. the minister of militia for two years of the war had the approval of the government., had Its apsroval, Sir Sam would have been replaced shortly after the war started. It is more than likely Sir Sam can defend' his" hospital' reorgan ization proposals and his criticisms of the British authorities more effect ively than he can his record in other respects. It is 'Uie worst part of his administration that has been sane tloned by the government, and the gov eminent must expect to be held direct ly responsible. It stood by him when graft and extravagance were exposed, courting then full responsibility for bis conduct. It dumps him out now on excuses much less serious than offered for months past. The episode certainly points to an election. Sharing his mistakes in the past, the government finds that it can't' continue to doiso and face the elector ate. It gets 'rid ot Sir Sam. and will try to shift alt the blame for'the ad ministration of the department since the war commenced upon his should- ers. In this attempt it won't succeed. It must share to the limit the record of the.d.epartment, good or bad, during the Hughes regime. t would be possible to put the day through the Crow in commission again. The high price of wheat is due to he war. The wheat gets across the Atlantic to the markets of Europe he- cause Great Britain controls the seas. Without this power in control of the seas our wheat would be like Russia's, dumped on the ground or in the ele- vators waiting for a buyer. The far- mers should keep thia fact In mind and share the Ugh price with the Mother Country by contributing hand somely to the Patriotic Fund. DICTATOR OF MOOSE DEAD Aurora, 111., Nov.
