NUMBER 263 IQI [Recruiting of an Entire Battalion in the Lethbridge District May Be Authorized Allies Now Making Every Possible Effort to Pit' Greeks against Bul- gers-May Accept The establishment of a perman- ent recruiting office In Lethhridge and the possibility of the recruit- ing of an entire battalion'of 1100 men in the Lethbridge district, to be quartered hero, are forecasted in a telegram received at the city offices this morning from Messrs. W. S. and E. C. McKenzle, the delegates representing the cit- izens who are now at Ottawa, In- terviewing the government auth. oritles with regard to the quarter- Ing of a large number of The telegram was address, ed to Mayor Hardie, and was re- ceived by Acting-Mayor Grace. The delegates state that Sir Sam Hughes, Minister of Militia, has expressed his desire to aid Lethbridge in this matter as far as possible, and has arranged for the establishment here of a per- manent recruiting office. He also his wish that an entire battalion could be-railed in the Lethbridge district. From the telegram it is taken that this means a battalion of in- fantry, which would 1r 100 men, and it is taken to mean that if this battalion was it would be quartered at Lethbridge. The interview with the Minister of Militia, which took place, yesterday, is thus under- stood to have been very success- ful. The establishment of a per- manent re-smiting office in the city would be very desirable. it is quite possible that the Minister may authorize the rais- ing of a battalion of men in the south to be located here, or it may be that the authorization will be for a brigade of artillery, which would mean about 700 men.

We may become downcast over the pro- gress of the operations on land, but when we turn our thoughts to the navy, we cheer up. We know that the Jack Tars still rule the waves, and Germany, no matter the headway she makes with her army, must first conquer the British navy before she can dominate the world.
