Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 7, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1918 PAGE THREE THAT SON-IN-LAW OF PA'S J By Wellington IYE55IB,^HI5 HERE TAM'l-VS r econoi-ivie in- it HUR^S.ANPUtTH' money WE 5WET in LIBERTY p h-iBoNps?r'- aiSrVwflrri'b frAMNteb ftoDO,PA. I DISCHARGED [THE ODOK^HIS kTH' C300KIN' ? ' Wi Cook! �fa No Peace Till Germany Is Taught War Does Not Pay: Declaration N. W. Rowell "In [he words of President Wilson, *Wo solemnly propose a decisive victory of arms.' Wn must teach the tiornians onco and for all luat'war does not pay." This ringing declaration of Canada's �war policy was made on Saturday evening on the occasion of Hon. N. \V. Howell's address, at Knox Church when the president of the privy council paid his first visit to the city o� L.ethbridge. It was tho first visit l^ethbridge has had from a cabinet minister for a long time, and in spite of the fact that it was Saturday evening there was a good crowd present. Hon. Mr. Rowell's subject was Canada's participation in the war, and in that\regard ho gave a very clear exposition of what has been undertaken by the government in the past year in the way of bending Canada's whole energy to the winning... of the war. Hon. Mr. Rowell went to England and France in June, and there ho learned at first hand just what participation in the war by Canada meant, and in his own masterly way he gave a vivid portrayal of the great part this country Is taking. Mayor Hardie presided, and in introducing Hon. Mr. Rowell he express-j cd the pleasure of the people of Leth-bridge in receiving a visit from ti member of the cabinet-a pleasure all too infrequent. To Continue R.N.W.M.P. The speaker of the evening in opening his address, said he was in. tire west primarily on business connected with that great force, the R.N.W.M.P. who fall under his department. During tile day he had visited Macleod and Lethbridge and he was very glad to see the great interest in the force, not only for its past brilliant achievements but also because of what the future might hold. The creation of provincial police forces in Alberta and Saskatchewan has resulted in very material changes in the R.N.W.M.P. and while he could not state what the future of the organization would be he thought he could promise that it would be continued in some capacity The Mounted Police had given to the fighting armies overseas two major generals, two brigadier generals, ten colonels and made officers of lesser rank, besides hundreds now serving in the ranks. The famous O'Leary, V.C., had also graduated from that school of efficiency in the art of fighting. "The Mounted Police have a splendid NOTICE-MILITARY SERVICE ACT, 1917 REGISTRATION OF UNITED STATES CITIZENS Male citizens of the United States living in Canada of AGES 21-30, both inclusive, MUST REGISTER BY REGISTERED POST with the Registrar under the Military Service Act of the district in which they live, during the TEN DAYS NEXT FOLLOWING SEPTEMBER 28th, 1918; and such CITIZENS OF THE AGES 19, 20 AND 31-44, both inclusive, must so register during the TEN DAYS NEXT FOLLOWING OCTOBER 12th, 1918. It must be emphasized that THIS INCLUDES AMERICANS LIVING IN CANADA OF THE ABOVE AGES, MARRIED AND SINGLE, and includes ALSO ALL THOSE WHO HAVE SECURED DIPLOMATIC EXEMPTION OR HAVE REGISTERED WITH AN AMERICAN CONSUL, or HAVE REGISTERED.FOR MILITARY SERVICE IN THE UNITED STATES. Registration letters may be handed to local Postmasters for despatch to the proper Registrar, under the Military Service Act. MILITARY SERVICE BRANCH. fr NOTICE-MILITARY SERVICE ACT, 1917 MEN EXEMPTED AS FARMERS *� Having in view the importance of leaving a sufficient number of men on- those farms, which are actually contributing to the National Food Supply, notice is hereby' given >as follows : 1. ALL MEMBERS OF CLASS I POSSESSING EXEMPTION AS FARMERS which is expiring and WHO WISH TO REMAIN EXEMPT should communicate with the Registrars under the M.S.A., of their respective districts, REQUESTING AN EXTENSION IN TIME OF SUCH EXEMPTION. Questionnaires will thereupon be issued to these men by the Registrar and they will receive further exemption upon furnishing satisfactory proof that they are contributing sufficiently to the National Food Supply. 2. In order to facilitate productive employment during the Winter rtfbnths, MEN EXEMPTED AS FARMERS SHOULD APPLY TO THE REGISTRARS FOR PERMITS TO ENGAGE FOR THE WINTER IN SOME OCCUPATION OF NATIONAL INTEREST, SUCH AS LUMBERING, MUNITION WORK, ETC. Such permits will serve to enable exempted farmers to pursue other useful pecupations for the months during which farming operations cannot be carried on. MILITARY SERVICE BRANCH. record of service not only in the past but in the present war" he declared. Britain's Tribute to Canada It was also of special interest to the people of the west that Hon. Mr. Rowel] announced that the Canadian force in Siberia, which would be built up from tho" R.N.W.M.P. unit now forming, would be Britain's principal contribution in the Siberian field of activity. It was a distinct tribute to Canada that Great Britain should rest in her hands this responsibility. A Canadian general and a Canadian staff will have charge of Britain's expeditionary forces in this theatre of war. Canada is surely coming into her own as a nation within the British Empire. The Spring Crisis ~ Turning to the war in its larger phase Mr. Rowell proceeded to tell what he had seen in Britain and France. When the party had arrived in the Old Country and Prance in June, the situation was just as critical as it could be. The great German drives had brought them close to Amiens and Paris. The defeat of the British 5th army had been the worst defeat Britain had suffered in 500 years. A continuation of the German drive half the distance more than what they had already gained would have probably meant a decisive German victory. Germany had two chan- j ces to win this war, once in 1914 and again in the spring of 1918. Both times she faltered and was turned back on the banks of the Marne. The Canadian Army And where was the Canadian army during this terrific struggle? Because of Canada's decision last December to sustain her army in the lield with adequate reinforcements Canada had the strongest force in France this spring she has ever had there. The army had been increased by 30,000 reinforcements. , The auxiliary forces Then there is the tank service. Canada has already sent over a tank battalion. Others are now being organized. He then proceeded to tell of the Russian situation, and the part Canada is to phry for the Motherland in that theatre. Exemption Cancellations Dealing with some questions of war which have come before the government Hon. Mr. Rowell spoke briefly on the question of the cancellation of farmers' exemptions. Ho declared that he had no apology to make for helping to put into force compulsory military service in Canada nor for the cancellation of exemptions during the crisis last spring. On the facts last fall, when the question of food was paramount, exemptions had been granted which, on the facts as they were after the successful German drives in the spring, had to be cancelled because reinforcements were more needed than food. Britain at that time had cancelled the exemptions of 30,-000 farmers, and the Canadian government had no apology for following that precedent. Dealing wtih Canada's industrial situation he said that this year Canada's shipyards will launch 446,000 tons of shipping, which is 46 per cent of tho total launched by Great Britain in 1917. This is a great achievement for a young nation, and taken in connection with the government-owned railway system it would give to this young nation a government-owned transportation system that should assist very materially in the progress of Canada after the war. Last year Canada made 55 per cent of Britain's needs in 18-pounder shells besides a great amount of other am^ munition. Now millions of dollars' worth of munitions are being made for the U. S.
