Your King and Country need you right nowl THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The recognition by the allies of the Yenizelos government ot Greece, as established in Crete, has been quickly followed by the occupation by the allies of the municipal buildings and barracks of Athens, the Greek capital. What this may portend only those who are In intimate touch with con- ditions may forecast, but it is reason- able to assume that this is the fore- runner of further events that will I eventually lead to the dethronement of King Constautine. and the estab- lishment of a more democratic form of government -with Venizelos at its head. Only such a government could the allies safely deal with. In the meantime, along the Mace- donian front, heavy fighting is taking place for tie possession of important railway lines, in which both sides claim success. In Oalicia the Russians are still battling through the Carpa- thian passes, and in the regions south- west of Lemberg. and in Translyvania, the Rumanians are struggling to check the advance of the Teutonic forces which have suddenly .overwhelmed them. Thus the great struggle goes on to break the great Teuton line of communication between Berlin and the near east, where undoubtedly the turn of events either way will have a great deal to do in deciding the war. EVERY TENANT SHOULD REGISTER The city council provided three additional.places for the registration ot those 'who Have ihe- right to vote under the tenants' franchise clause of the city charter, and these places to be kept open in the evenings.. There will be no excuse now for the non-registration of tenant voters. If the tenants have enough interest the affairs of the- city they will see to it that their names are on the list. No tenant should overlook this opportu- nity which means the right to have a voice in the city government. This to the ladies as well as the tary of the registration board, ,t would continue to interfere still moro in all matters of policy coming before tho board, and the .cope and usefulness of the board would be so serious hampered that it would become the laughing stock of the country.

Wesley Allison, "the soul of hon is at.it again. Col. J. Wesley is now In New York, where his peculia financial genius is more highly appre elated. Evidently he has been dipping into tie munitions contracts being iwardea through the big metropolis for he seems to have come in for commission on a contract secured b lie Canadian Car Co. from the Rus government. Having dipped t the tune of the Canadian Ca Co. hesitated about paying him an more commission per shell. J. Wesley became- -peeved when he saw his easy money slipping, and is now in the New York courts endeavoring to recover the remaining slice of the coin. J. Wesley acquired the habit in Ottawa, and seemingly he cannot shake it off. HAVE YOU STOCKED YOUR COAL'SUPPLY? JHow'many householders who burn coal have laid In their winter's supply? "What's the use'" replies the house- holder who hasn't even thought of such a thing. "We.live In the coal city, don't we? We can get coal any time." Have you ever thought about this matter-from any other angle? There is more than a mere prasli'ilty of a coal famine in Western Canada this winter. Every ton of coal the mines can produce will be needed to keep the west warm. If Lethbridge house- holders had been provident and laid In their supplies during the summer when orders were not so heavy, many more tons would be available for dis- tribution throughout the prairies when the real need comes during the winter. .It is probably a little late in the year .to mention.this.matter, but even yet, If Lethbridge citizens would make a special effort to secure the winter's supply now, much might he accom- .plished in the way or providing larger supplies for shipment during the win- tcr months.
