Judging by the =tem-per of the allies, following recent German atrocities in France and on the eea, nothing bat uncondltioo*'! surrender will he considered. THANKSGIVING DAY NINETEEN HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN The only thing worth while at this moment is the winning oJ tjie war and at no Thanksgiving since the awful struggle began, h�v8 we had greater reason to feel sv.ueftil.about the war situation. We should all be fer\*eutly thankful that a complete victory tor the principles fought with such deter-niinatiou but with great sacrifices by the Allies since 1914, is la sight. We have travelled a long, hard road, very dark and dismal at times, but the prospect is brightening and we can cheer up. We hare always b^en thankful for the noble part pia.ved by our Canadian men in the war. St. Julien, Passchendale, Vlmy in th(, past have fiiied us with pride and now we have to add to these BoiirloA Wood and Cambrai, where tiie Canadian army distinguished itself more than at any other points in the entire war. Our great victories have meant heavy sacrifices, bo' we are proud of the noble sacrifices of our dead, just as we are proud of the great performances of the living. Another Thanksgiving will fairly certainly see an end of the war-and may,it;also see an assurance, of the end of all war for all tlpiip.. In the meantime we must set ourselye's firmly to face the demands of the coming year. Half way peace offers must be rejected; we must stand unflinchingb'. aS did Lincoln at -the time of the civil war, for an unconditional surrender. - As,to thatiks . for material welfare. We have every reason to be grateful. True in this part ot the province, crops were poor, but conditions might have been immensely worse. With the'moisture we hacl we have reason to be thankful for the .crops we did harvest. Canada, as a whole, was never as prosperous. To be thankful for that circumstance would be to be thankful for the war, and of course, few of us are inclined to ^think so much of war as that. We are thankful however, that Canada was resourceful enough to provide from the begipning the munitions, necessary to carry on the -war to its present successful stage. The w^r has created our prosperity. When the war is over, prosperity may not be so abundant, but we should prepare ,to naeet the future by practising thrift no^r, ^ PICKED UP IN-* f>^xxmnm m w jum The public school at Gladstone, j ,', Mrs. Thps, , Sbmerviile, who locat-Man,. was destroyed by fire. \M in 5r,'ENi-prtfcE>lENi; Mayor Hardie actually argues that economy is more important than law enforcement. His contention if followed t'o its ultimate conclu.=;on, would mean no police force whatever rather than an increase in the tar rate. . It wonid be just as sensible to apply the same argument to the fire department or the commissioners themselves.. ' Certain laws exist and they are supposed to be enforced. The proji-erty and life of the citizen areentitled to protection and a police force is maintained for that purpose. Mayor Hardie is the commissioner ot public safety. It is his duty to enforce the laws. They are not enforced at present, either because the mayor is not in favor of enforcement or because he is so determined to carry out his economy policy in the police force, that he refuses to increase the force, no- matter what the danger to property and lite. Of course the mayor exploits economy in an effort to convince the citizens that he is acting solely for the purpose of keeping down expenses. The mayor is only economical when it suits his own ideas. His economy policy'has 'not always .been -conaistent. He is economical when it suits his j own wjiims, but not 'otherwise. "We ! hardly think the citizens of Leth-bridge, no "matter how eager "ihey are to jjenjoy economical administration, ar^ willing jto sacrifice the^repu- MUST BE CERTAIN OF LAW ENFORCEMENT Tlidse clUxens -who are looking towards a solution of the vice problem in this city, might as well cease campaigning to get rid of the evil. t(jDtil th,pre is an assurance that th4 law win be enforced it is a waste of time asking that a segregated district should be closed. If the request were granted and then the law not enforced, in sections ot the city, where afterwards the evil might raise its head, the, situation gjiould be worse than ever. Those citizens who want, to get rid of the'evil, should ^irst make certain that be enforced, if the system is changed. Far better the. present evil, than a jiyprse one all over tlie cityi existing because enforcement (if the law is neglected. Only a strong, watchful public opinion can improve conditions; They can make the powers higher up realize that they are serloua and mean business and when they do that the pow- APAKOWKIIN 1 3 The nest Alberta municipalities con ventlon will be held in Bdmontoh,  The , Canadian Methodist church aims to raise eiglit million dollars t6r> missions in five years.
