ALBERTA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1915 NUMBER 289 Cabinet Now Meeting in Bucharest to Consider Possible Action Rome, Nov. part iu the war hangs on the decision of a cabinet council now in progress in Bucharest, today's -dispatches from the Humani-iii capital indicate.

Accepting it as true, the impression is growing that the entente allies have arrived too late to give any service to the Serhians. The only thing certain in regard to the plight of Serhia is that its mili- tary situation is going from bad to worse.

This surprise attack been plan- ned some time. The Canadians sprang into the German trenches and bay- onefctcd all the occupants immediately within reach, but did not attempt to' keep the trench, returning to their, own lines. The German report des- cribed this exploit as the repulse, of a surprise attack on the Messines-Ar- mentieres road, when, as a matter of fact, it was a local enterprise which so far as it went, was success- ful.

MONEY WiLL ALL COME BACK Lethbridge would need to raise in order to meet the Patri- .otic Fund payments to the dependents of soldlert m this city. No mat- ter the amount raised In thif city it will all be spent here, for the de- .mands upon the fund will increase n the new regiments are formed. During the twelve mopths ending September last, Lethbridge only contributed one dollar for every three dollars distributed by the fund In this city. It should, then, be apparent thnal the money contributed in this cam- paign does not leave the city; it merely meane we are trying to look after our own people with our own money. Alberta asked to raise half a million with the knowledge that at least a million dollars will be spent In the province. That means other provinces will make up the difference. It would be a great satisfaction if In this campaign throughout the province we were able to raise double the allotment. If we ahould so succeed, then we won't have to 10 other provinces to assist in providing for our dependents. Lethbridge can double its allotment without much trouble If the people all realize their patriotic people who are etaylng at home and who are only ask- ed to sacrifice a few dollars eaeh month. If any man or woman feels that the appeal should be answered, a card to the committee will bring a canvasser around to get the subscription, The generosity of the peo- ple to far has been genuinely pletsing. Just as an Instance, we might mention that the pupil nurses of the Call Hospital have volunteered to contribute a day'a pay each mcnlh to the Fund, not for a month or a year, hut until the end of the war. How about you! Mr. Cittten, have you done your share? Are you shirking? The time to aacriflce is now. Hand your dollars over to the Patriotic Fund, or arrange to contribute so much a month for a year, or until the war ends. There are individual oases of supposedly repesentative and well-to, do cltliens falling to respond to the appeal. This means that they think "more 6f their bank account than they do of the dependents of the brave fellows In the trenches. Their fellow citizens will be given' an opportunity to learn of their it is nothing lese than disloyally when men In this crucial period in the country's history, fall to do their part at citizens. Failure to help meant they are so selfish that they wouldn't care a rap if the country fell into the hands of the enemy. il IN HILLS Jtegina, %Tov, 20 Mare of Sask was i shot and killed on Friday by a man named: O'Brien, who is now barricaded in the hills near Fife Lake, -south of Wood Mountain.
