In the meantime he has submitted German's plea for an armistice to the other allied countries-. iPresident Wilson states in his reply that he is not yet satisfied that autocracy has been muzzled in Germany and since the word of the autocracy in Gftnnany aannot be depended upon, it is ijseiess' to discuss an armistice with them. He further states that no armistice will be granted that will permit Giarmany to resume hostilities: . The JBritish army, in the new attack Bprth ot Valenciennes, have captured 60Q0 prisoners and advanced on a five-mile front, reaching the entire bank oit the canal north of Valenciennes. The Germans have opened the sluice gates of.the canal in an effort to block tfte British advance. MAKE THE PROVINCIAL FORCE Ef^FICIENT With the public shouting for law enforcement and hurling criticism at the provincial police force, that force la being seriously handicapped along two very important lines, and the sooneir Ifie-provincial police commission gets down to the business of organizing the force on a sound basis, the sooner will public confidence in the force be firmly established. In order to be efficient the force must possess some degree ot permanency. Under present conditions a new conatahle may quit the force on almost a moment's notice. There is no real permanency about such a system. Men who join the force should be sworn in for a term of one, two or three years, as was the case with the mounted police. This gives permanency and makes room for some sort i of discipline, such as should exist in a semi-military organization. The force to be efficient should also be well-manned, and this is not now the case. The Lethbridge division, one of the largest in the province, is seriously under-manned. A half-dozen men are scattered at the outlying points in the division. Only one man is stationed at Coutts, where the horder (or a couple of hundred miles must be patrolled and the bootlegging controlled. Let the police commission show its confidence in men like Supt. Bryan at Edmonton, and Inspector Mundy at j BIGVEGETABIfS ATiLKRie j cards between midnight and 9 a.m. Clubs must pay a' ?25 license fee for each card table.

The best meajis ot assuring it is to deprive France of her army. What Bismarck thought good for ivance in 1870, is just what Germany I'eeda itself in 1918. The allies should idopt the Bismarck doctrine. Germany surely can't object since it was ber own method of dealing with Stance nearly 50 years ago. QPEAT BRITAIN TRIES TP GOVERN TOO MANY Mr. Hugh Childers, in the latest Itiimber of The Round Table, argues t^at parliamentary government must Vreak .down in the United Kingdom unless the central hody is relieved of a great part of its functions *y tlie ^eatjon of subordinate bodies for management of local affairs. He in'ikes these suggestive comparisons:  "In Germany there is, in round ;aumbers, about one government to jevery-2,500,000, souls, in Switzer-*land one to every 170,000, in the ]Uni(4 Stetes one to every 2,000,->'pOp, iti 9ajiada one to, every 800,-jboO, -i'n- Australia one . to every \700,QQ(|; in gputb Africa one to ev-5ery V 1,200,000^ In the United 'Kingdom 45,000,000 people are ,;iserved by a single executive and ^Kislature, which have also to thus far.

Need Victory Loan Money To Move Wheat Crop The soldiers fought to save you; save to pay them. Save: Remember Canada's bill is still a million a day. U is expected iliat there will be well towards one hundred millions of ; bushels of wheat from the western \ farms for export this year. At the j fixed price of $2.25 per bushel it i means that the grain growers will re-i ceive in cash $225,000,000 as soon as iJ,hey can market their produce. Do farmers of the Prairie- Provinces � understand what provision has been excess products, namely Great Britain. The effect, of course, was to increase the volume ot business, and as a result Canada has enjoyed a period of great prosperity. How the Exports Grew Let us look at figures which tell of the great volume of trade that has come to Canada. Last year was one made by the Dommion government to of huge exports. While in 1915 our finance the crop?

Dr Clark In his Red Deer speech, financed through the Victory Loan; ^ The western farmers are responsible criticized the provincial government therefore, that is one very good rea-1 for a great proportion of this increase for lack of economy because of the ' son-if the patriotic reason were not, and the volume of business made pos-biilky travelling expenses of the cab-i sufficient-why every man, woman and sible by the accretion of so much inef ministers. Whal does Dr. Clarjc think of a government which has a large office-building, such as the Calgary customs house, a new and expensive structure, situated at a convenient place in this city, which is more than half empty, while the gov-erfiment Is paying tens of thousands of dollars to Tory landlords for rental for other government offices, and is now trying to place the Calgary post office with Btlll other Tory landlords, paying a very high rental? Is that the kind of economy that Dr. Clark would suggest that the provincial government should practice? If the Albertan's statement as above is correct, our old friend Frank Carvell must have lost his economy streak.

Sir Thomas further says that the crop could not be moved unless the Dominion government furni.shed a considerable amount o� money by way of an advance to the British government, which is the purchaser of the wheat. Wheat Depends on Loan The situation ought to be clear to every westerner. Upon the success ot the loan depends the future ot the great Industry which is being built up in the west-Last year the Dominion government had to make advances amounting to $100,000,000.

Averting a Calamity The great western public-there are nearly two million' people living he-tween Lake .Superior and the Rockies -depend chiefly on agriculture. They are all just as much interested as the grain growers. They all know that a crop failure would he a calamity from which the west would not soon recover; but they should kno-w as well that it would be just as much a calamity if the west were not in a position to market its wheat. High prices have made Wheat King.
