It Is iii-terestlBgio note the attitudes of the people of tie Allied countries as oon-); trasted -with the attitude of the people at Cfermany. 'K In the Allied countries the people ,' have been slow to recognize the great  victory that has been won in the last six -weeks. One -well-known English -writer suggests that the government should engage some one to inform the people that a great Tlctory had ' been -wrested from the Germans. But 1 the general feeline among the Brlt-! Ish and among the Allies as well, Is ' that Hvhlle the tide has turned it Is only the beflnnlng of the end. It -will take a long time to drive the Huns i back into Germany, which is admlt-I ted to be the only real effective man- ber of the cabinet. A. G. .MacKny. The .Medicine HbI Nov.-s has tho toUo-n'lng brief commenl; Whatever anyone else may say or think concerning the retiremeut front the provincial cabinet of Hon. C. W. Cross, the premier's decision In this respeft will be supported by seven or eight hundred Medicine Hat people -^v9 refer to those who heard him speak here In the Empress Theatre last week. Pew Indeed of those present on that occasion, but ^vho would agree with the News in stating thai Premier Stewart is too big a man to be Influenced by trivialities iu political Issues. He had good and sufficient reason for asking Mr. Cross to retire-of that there cau be no shadow of a doubt. v The Lethbrldge Herald, writing after the dismissal of Mr. Cross and before the appointment of the new member of the cabinet, says that "it must be confessed that the sudden change In the provincial cabinet has been received with a certain amount of satisfaction," and concludes that the premier should fill the vacancy created by "a member capable of fl.vnjpathetlc understanding of returned soldier problems." The Conservative newspapers while not disapproving, , are rather critical of the government. The Kd-montoa Journal divides Its disapproval between ilr. Cross and of his successor as attorney-general. "Mr. Cross," it says, "was tax from ui ideal occupont of the position tut his successor Is no Improvement." PICKED UP IN-* PASSING i^0 has been placed at tho disposal of the government by Sir Basil Zahar-off for the purpose of endowing a professorship of aviation. At a meeting of the Trades and Labor council of Vancouver all tlie old ^ , delegates were re-elected and all old ;t l3 i officers were again chosen. The election follows the resignation of the ner of teaching the Germans that . German alms of ruling the world the PruaiBJan way can' never be realized. ]! On the German side the,p�ople are being fed up on various lies design-i ed to stiffen their resistance. One \ anthorlty wUl admit that -while the I Germans are being driven tack, tha.t I Is all the more reason to Increase fthe' solid front against the edemy I for the protection of the fatherland. V Other officials declare that while 1 tlia Clerman lines are bending they lean never toe hroken, and that the ' Allies are paying a terrible price for their euecesses. In Germany the , big-Idea seems to be to make th� people believe they are flghtlos to defend their homes from the invader, whereas, If the German people would only demand the truth .they would  find that they are fighting to save ' the Potsdasn gang. It is very interesting at any rate , to note how tho peoples of the nation concerned are taking the oon-I tlnued Allied �ucceases, and asseclal-ly Interesting to note the change In the German olOclal tone to-day from the "b'oastfulness with -which Von Hindenburg. in the spring declared ha -would, drive, the British armies into tlie'; Channel. ' ; qu�sted. The VegreviUe Observer, though it has nothing good to say of Mr. Cross, condemns -without qualification the Inclusion of Mr. MacKay-in the provincial affairs as minister of municipal affairs and public health. It admits his ability and experience, but refers to his membership in the ill-fared Ro^ administration in Ontario, which went down In infamy, and says that his career In Alberta has not been Such as to make him a bright and shining light In Liberalism, The Allies have taken the Drocourt-Queant switch. The next thing they'll have Heinle's scalp. with the calling of a 24-hour holiday as a mtirk of respect to the funeral services conducted for the draft evader, -A Goodwin, who .was shot and killed by Constable Campbell. Goodwin was a former member of the Trades and Labor council. That German long range gun hasn't �bombarded, Paris, for some time. It was atufther'-filvver. Th^.
