A. Buchanan Managing Director 1224 John Torrance Business Manager Your King and Country need you right now' THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR That Zeppelins are now ineffective as a weapon against Great Britain owing to the wonderful development of the air defences of the British, has been amply demonstrated in the most recent raid on the British coast in which two Zeppelins and their crews were destroyed and the remain- der of the attacking ships driven off hcfore any damage to any extent was accomplished. This makes now a tota It took eighteen days to formally settle the U. S. presidential election. Whon It comes to marathon contests, the Statesera have the edge on the rest of the world. The decision of the Lethbrldge Brewing Co. to turn part of their big plant here into public cold storage will help to flll a long felt need In the city and district. It should help the dairy and egg produce business ot the south, and should help to keep summer and winter prices a little more evenly matched. It was reported unofficially over grain brokers' wires yesterday that the U. S. had received an Intimation that Berlin mighty sorry, and the submarine commander who torpedoed the Marina, killing five Americans, had made a mistake and would be punish- ed, and that Germany would make re- paration. It's the same old story. If tho miners will go back to work pending a Government investigation of their demands they will be doing much to gain the good opinion of the coal-consuming public ot Western Can- ada. An amicable settlement of the strike differences is very much to be desired ospecially with the country at these monster airships to have been destroyed in raids on England. Each succeeding raid undertaken now by the Germans is more disastrous for them than tor England, so efficient Jiave the air defences become. The Rumanian situation, though serious, is not without its cheering side. The Rumanians are. retreating on a solid front towards their capital and are resisting with all the force at their command, the advancing Teu tons, who, however, have made more gains and effected the crossing of the Danube at several vital points. The Greek Government has appeal- ed to neutral nations against what it termed the coercive measures taken by the Allied powers to effect a more complete and unhampered utilization of Greek territory for the Allied cam- paign in the Balkans.

Provincial: BRITAIN'S CASE IS ABSOLUTELY SOUND The New York Times, in an editor- ial on Viscount Grey's latest defence of the blacklist says: "When Viscount Grey rocunds us that the British blacklist, published under the authority of the act forbidding trading with the snemy, is simply ft measure "which enjoins thosa who "owe allegiance to Great Britain to cease having trade relations with per- sons who are found to be assistine or rendering service to the It becomes evident that no reply Is pos- sible on that point, since we cannot contest the right ot Great Britain to prohibit her subjects from giving to the enemy "the support and as- sistance 'of British credit and British property." Even though some of our citizens may suffer from the loss of trade privilege, we cannot deny the British Government's right to con- trol the trading activities of those who are subject to its authority." It is really impossible to put th case any more effectively than that In setting rid of Sir Sam Hughes, Premier Borden has not done all that is necessary to strengthen his Gov- ernment. In a recent issue the Mono tary Times ot Toronto says thai "Gen. Sir Sam Hughes' elimination from the cabinet shows either that Sir Robert Bordsn has acquired more backbone or that someone has forced S little of that commodity into the premier's "office. Several other ob- stacles to the present government's future success at the polls remain to be removed." The Hon. W. M.

NOT UNPATRIOTIC A YEAR OR TWO AGO The Ottawa Citizen, discussing th political situation in Canada at the present time, says: Since the Domin- ion Government so thoroughly bes- mirched itself, the faithful party pa- pers, ready to shout for a general elec- tion at the end of the session of 1915 have developed a most virtuous op- position to "plunging this country into the turmoil of party politics with the disorganization of a general election durinr the war." In the desperat months; of .1915, while Mr.' Lloyd _ George was organizing the Impefia Ministry of Munitions, the Canadian Government frittered away preclout time forcing a bill through the House of Commons to fo electioneering in the trenches. What on eartfl did th< Government mean .to do with its Votes for Why did It ship lls ballot boxes to the Old Country' Plainly to introduce the "turmoil o party Canadian brand, amonq the soldiers on active service. Fate in the shape of a German torpedo, put an end to the ballot box burlesque What a farce to expound in the party press now on how very unpatriotic It would be to hold a general election. Verily tho bipartisan game, whatever it may lack, at least adds to the gaiety ot this nation. "Diogenes" in the Vancouver Prov- nce relates a story told to him by a esldent of that city who was staying nca at a hotel in a country town when ir Sam (then Colonel) Hughes ar- Ived. They were the only guests and naturally fell into conversation, which after dinner became chiefly a monologue. Perhaps the colonel's eliow guest was conscious that he was not bearins his fair share of utterance and he retired to rest, to be followed soon after by Col. Hughes. They slept n contiguous rooms. At about one o'clock in the morning the colonel pounded the" separating wait violent- ly, and waked his neighbor, who en- quired with some alarm what was the can'.t said Sir Sam "come in here, I want someone to talk to." This his neighbor declined to do so Sir Sam wrapped himself in farmer.
