Buchanan John Torrance Managing Director Business Manager THE PRESENT POSITION News of the progress of the battlo along the main line is decidedly en- couraging. So much so that on the extreme right of the Allies the en- emy's country has been up to the stronghold of iletz, in Success here, more than ever, ac- counts for the diversion of. the enemy ou-his right to draw the main body of the Allies towords the west. By succeeding in this manoeuvre the Germans, no doubt, hope to make the distance of the forces threatening to invade their territory longer from it. However in tha -west, on tie Allies' left, tho movements gain in advance. Already the enemy is driven back from the line, between Lille north- wards up to Hazfibrouck, farther east towards CourtraL The occupation of Ostend by the Germans can only be a temporary gain. With the Allies not only hold- ing their own, but advancing on the enemy's' right and making progress on their o'wn right wins, the enemy have to pause and look back for home. Thei disaster to the Hawke is one of those incidents to be looked to ships on patrol duty. The loss of Ufa is to 'be deplored, but the sink- ing ot the ship, considering her type, is Insignificant as affecting anything in the way of the material of the Bri- tish fleet.

ELECTION TALK There is still a probability of a gen- eral election in Canada. It is hard 'or some people to credit the possi- bility of such "an occurrence "while war is in progress, but despatches from the east indicate that serious consid- eration Is being given to an early ap- peal to the people by the Borden gov- ernment. The rumored changes In the cabinet lend strongly to the belief that an election is in sight. It may be quite, trae that pelletier and Nantel are leaving the govern- ment because they differ with Its policy in sending a second contingent to Europe. Neither of these gentle- men 'are strong in their sympathies with the alotiier Country. They are more or TPSS inclined to the Nation- alist Tiew that Canada should not do anything to assist the Mother Coun- ry.

THOSE -DISMISSALS Tho Lethbrldgo Herald is mak- ing a great outcry because a num- of Dominion goverumout offic- ials have -been" dismissed at that point. To read the Herald ouo would conclude that these officials were thrown out of ollice "without anv reason or excuse. Unfortun- ately, there Is no Conservative pa- per in Lethbridge to give us the other side of the case. We know that it has not -been the practice of the present government to turn out officials unless charges have been maue against them and have been furthermore fully substan- tiated. If the Lethbrldge Herald or any one else thinks that offic- ials are dismissed on the unsup- ported demand of any political clique it is very much mistaken. We have only to look about us and see the number of Liberal partlzaus who are still holding of- fice to convince ourselves that the authorities are far from Medicine Hat Times. We believe the Times is prepared to be fair. We know it is surprised at the Herald's allegations and can- not understand officials being remov- ed without cause being offered. Never- theless, neither Mr. "Higinbothain, who has been removed as postmaster, or Mr. Stafford, who-lost his position as lands agent, had any reason given :hem to explain why thfi change was, being made-- Mr. Higinbotham. was' coldly advised that1 the office had been transferred to Mr. Kipley. Mr. Staff- ord has demanded an investigation, but even a reply to his wire and let- ters has not been forthcoming.. The Times can- find as much criticism of the beheading amongst Conservatives here, as amongst Liberals. The understanding always has been that charges should be preferred against an office holder. In the Leth- bridge cases, absolutely no charges were so far no investigation grunted. It is a cold blooded, dastard- ly removal of men from office at the dictation of a few bosses, and not upon the demand of the Conservative party in this city. The Times can establish the truthfulness of our alle- gations with very little trouble.
