Kins intiaevpt! Greece has renounced policy of supporting In. lies, and allowing the landing ;nch. troops to go to Serbia, and Premier .Venizolas has resigned. A revolution is threatened. In the mean nine" the French have landed i-o6pa7 which are marching through 10 Serbia to aid tha' country agams Rumania is massing troops "bnHhe Bulgarian frontier. ftAll this spells war for the Balkan states in a very short time. Bulgaria will be into to it before the end of .the week, and it is likely that instead adopting an offensive against Ser- bia, she will be compelled to defend herself against a Russian attack. A is threatened in Greece. -On the western front the Allies are once-more bringing their big guns into action, in preparation for another, big' attack. I Macs not claimed tho right to re Act on its merits ilui the ao.t be a distinct Interim- some Imperial 01 Dominion or he deemed unconstttution lal 'toy reason of exceeding the powers to provinces by the B. N. A, Act, a Provincial law Is now loft to ts operations, even though every lembVr of tho Federal Cabinet should disapprove-of its provisions. The ?rbvlncial Legislature, then, is not a subordinate body, but one that Is prac- tically supreme when acting within the limits assigned to it. Just as laws of the Province are subject to disallowance by the Dominion gov- ernment, so the laws of the Dominion are subject to disallowance by the Imperial government. But here again the veto power is more nominal than real. The power to veto is there to'he used in a possible emergency, but In reality it is not usei! at an. Both Do minion and Provincial legislative bod- ies are thus virtually independent, and in their respective spheres are prac- tically supreme. The Dominion Parliament has amh ority over matters of perhaps large: concern than those which engage the attention of the Provincial authorities, and as it legislates for the whole Do- minion, it is the more important body. Annual Meeting of the Red Cross The annual meeting of the Loth- bridge Red Cross society will be held on Friday evening In St. Augustin's hall at S.30.'

WAH AFFECTS ALBERTA COLLEGES BUT LITTLE Edmonton, Alta., Oct. war has a certain effect on the edu- cational institutions of Edmonton, it is apparent only as progress" retarded, ami not in a falling off in attend- ance. The University of Alberta re- ports that registration is running ab- out the same as last year. On Octo- bor 1. llU-USiO students had enroll- ed Tup to today 250 students have en- rolled this year. Approximately the same registration as last year is ex- pected. RICKED UP IN .ASSINGI THE BUOY MAN In the agricultural demonstration schools, the enrolment has increased T almost 00 per cent. The 1914 enrol- ment in the colleges at Yernifiion, Olds and Claresholm totaled 303. En- rolment to date in the three institu- tions is 337, with more expected. Robertson Theoogical college, Pres- byterian, reports an enrolment equal Yet in one very impufiimt respect, tnat of .asl year LETHBRIDGE WOULD LIKE TO HEAR HIM It is understood that there is a strong likelihood of Sir Robert Bor- den paying a visit to the west in the near future. His intention is to visit the principal cities, and relate at non- partisan meetings, the stirring inci- dents'connected with his recent visit to. the Canadian troops at the front and in England. Lethbridge will be glad if lie Includes this city in his itiaerary. On a tour, of the character mentioned, he comes as the leader of and not of anv .party, and conaequentlv all parties mil join heartily in welcoming turn When he spoke in Toronto last week prominent Liberals were on the plat form, and in London he -was greeted officially by the Liberal candidate lor the House of Commons Str Robert has a thrilling story to tell at his vi to the trenches, and alPCanada -wants to he given tie opportnmt) ot flear ing It- the Provincial Legislature enjoys a power greater than that of the Do- minion Parliament. The term of the houses of assembly in the several pro- rinces was fixed for the time by the British North America Act at four years. Section 82 of the Act express- ly confers on the legislature of a pro- vince the power to amend the consti- tution of the province, except as re- gards the office of lieutenant-goveru- Under.this authority several of the legislatures have extended the term from four to five years. The Dominion Parliament has no such power. Section 50 of the Act provides that the House of Commons "shall for five years from the day of the return.of the writs for choosing the house (subject to be sooner .dip solved by the Governor-General) and no longer." The Dominion Parliament has no power to vary that provision. VISIT OF THE AUSTRALIAN CADETS Leihbridge, according to an. an- nouncement nude i, few days ago, is to be honored with a visit from the touring Australian cadets Accord- ing- to reports Jrom the Pacific Coast this is a really wonderful organize tion of highly trained cadets Austra- lia. IB to tie, fore in military training and naturaSIy the cadets have hene- fitted by the Australian system This city will greet the visitors; They represent a Creat movement and a great common wealth.
