Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 7, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1918 THE LETrtfeRIDGE DAIt.Y HEIULD PAGE NINE The Listening Post Of Interest to Veterans. Conducted by H. P. Madditon. I noticed with oohBitlerablo pleasure, that tlie Mayor and CoTincll of Calgary are petitioning the government to Increase the Separation Al-lowauce for the dependents ot men trora the west. With the present high prices ot food'Stufts and coal, and the high rents, lt| Is time something was done to ensure warm housing for the wives and children of our hoys over there during the coming winter. The councils o� our cities and towns are the rl?ht ones to start actions ot this sort, for, In addition to their appeals having a great deal ot weight, their deliberations are usually considered to be well founded. �Fall In! Lethl)ridBe, Cardston and the rest ot the south country. The Mennonltea arc attracting a great deal ot attention In Veteran circles Just now, and for good rea-flon. There Is no doubt, hut that, from the point ot view ot'the returned raan, and the man yet to return, the Mennonlte problem Is the blg-jrest thing in Southern Alberta. I grant that the alien question is a big one, but thpn they are not increasing very fast at this time, whilst tbe Mennonltea threaten to cnguU all the tivallable land in this south country. Ursenbach, in his article ot Saturday last, points > out how desirable they are a.i citizens, in a very well written effort. But just how any conscientious objector can manage to justify hl9 existence at this time puzzles me. The fact that the govern-fTlent,'back in ]873, gave these people the freedom ot the country, and an undertaking that tliey would not be called for military service, is no decent excuse for their not being In Ithaki at this time, for the simplo reason that wben that undertaking was given our only thought ot. war was an Indian rising or two, or a small scrap In some out ot the way portion of the globe. There was certainly no thought ot A world-wide scrap in which the whole sfforts ot the country would be stralp-!d to the utmost. But, from tho Veteran's point ot new, the big thing is the buying up of large tracts ot land in this country which should, in common decency, be saved tor the men of the Canadian .Vrmy. U is admitted that there is jot half enough land, within access )t railroads, tor the men who are likely to turn farmers when the fighting is pver. Yet in .spile of this, the covernment sells them tracts of :holce land for their colonies. That tract ot eighty-one square niles of the Mclntyro lease, that they aave bought would have meant a good living for a big number of returned aie'n. Something should be done, and Jone quickly, to stop the matter going any further, and it Is up to the municipalities of the southern halt of the province to get busy without '�"Hflriostftfrtrfnte^atia-petrtrbh'the'gdv- ornment to bar any more nt these-people coming Into Canada. .More about this question next week.

A STEP NEARER NOW Wilson Orders Beer Stopped- Totally Dry After May 1 Next Washington. Sept. 7.-Nation-wide prohibition was brought a step nearer, as the result of tho adoption by the senate last night ot tho emergency agricultural appropriation bill with its "dry" legislative rider and an announcement by tho food administration that President Wilson, Would exercise his war-time authority to prohibit the manufacture ot beer after next December 1. Under the legislation enacted by the senate tho manufacture of both beer and wine would be prohibited after next May, until tho American troops are demobilized after the war and the sale ot all intoxicants for beverage purposes would be prohibited after July 1. With President Wilson's order stopping the manufacture ot beer after necember 1, wine will be the only intoxicating liquor which can be manufactured in the United States after that date; the distilling ot whiskey having been prohibited last year as a food conservation measure. STRONG EN However, the few that managed to arrive had the time ot their lives. The menu called tor two chickens tor each Veteran. One roasted. Both young and tender. Two Tommies, on leave, came out of Selfrldge's the other day. One wore kilts, ' and the other hadn't bought anything, either. I have it on the authority ot a prominent citizen of Cardston that there was only one married man in llie band of veterans who journeyed there on Monday I wonder who that one was? Sure, Mrs. Veteran, your husband will claim to be IT; but what about that pound of butter that ho was supposed to bring back to you? The, Great W,Tr Veterans' Association arc greatly indebted to the Citizens of Cardston and district for a splendid day on. Monday last. It was too bad that the car service Cell down. President Longworth and the Secretary of the G. W. V. A., addressed the Next of Kin Association at their regular meeting on Monday last. They were accorded a very -warm reception by the ladles. The secretary especially. Will Comrades Clinton Garrison; Wm. Bunting, and No. 38,239, Smith, R., please get in touch with me at the club. GERMAN STAFF DORS.

Geneva, Sept. 7.-The German great general staff, which had been installed at Spa, Belgium, tor_ more than'a yoRi- and occupied six of the principal buildiTigs of the city, was removed ^ronday. Several hundred officers and employes superintended the removal of all the military archives, including the correspondence and orders ofi General Ludendorft and the crown princes. Two special 'trains were ordered to bear away the huge volume of documents, which were heavily guarded. The destination of the trains is unknown. London, Sept. 7.-Field Marshal Viscount French, lord lieutenant 'and governor-general of Ireland, has sent the following telegram to the British ministry ot Information on the occasion ot the anniversary ot the battle ot the Marne:- "1 am rejoiced to know that the American army by their splendid achievements in the last thee months have established Oieir right fully to participate in the glory wbinh eVer must be associated with the Marne, by reason of thfe victories ot 1914 and 1918." Viscount French also sent a similar telegram to Paris congratulating the French army. Washington, Sept. -Organization of tliQ first American field array In France is progressing so rapidly that Gen. March told members ot the sen-ale military committee today that nearly 95 per cent ot the Amorlenu trooiJfl brigaded with the British and Kreiicli have been wltlidrawn and are being assembled at a. point he did not designate. This accounts for the small number,of Americans engaged In the present forward movement ot the allies. TO FORCE PEACE Says Hindenbiirg, But Must Beware of Allied Propaganda Amsterdam, Sept, 7.-Field Marshal Hlndonburg's manifesto to the German people declaring the enemy, in addition to the armed offensive, is conducting an offensive by printed matter containing most insane rumors, is published prominently in all the German newspapers. The proclamation says that along with the battle against the German armies, the enemy is waging war against the German spirit. "We should not treat lightly this plan of the enemy," he says. "What are the facts?" asks Von Hindenburg. "In the east we have forced peace and in the west we are also strong enough to ,do so, despite the Americans. But we must be strong and -united." The manifesto says that the allies are trying to force neutral nations to fight against Germany, "because we are a match for them. Why does the enemy incite colored people against the Germans? Because he wants to annihilate us." Referring to a pamphlet advising the Germans to fight against the Hohenzollerns and capitalism and to help the entente give Germany a better constitution, the proclamation says: "The enemy knows what strength resides in our state and empire and endeavors to opbn wounds in the Ger-2nan body politic with leaflets and rumors. He endeavors to sow dissension and distrust among the federal states. "There always have been traitors to the fatherland, willing and unwilling. They mostly dwell in neutral countries in order not to be obliged to share our battles and deprivations." The manifesto concludes: "Be on your guard, German army." Communications under tbla beading must bear tho signatures of the writers. APOLOGY TO MR. WEBSTER Editor Herald: Dear Sir,-I will Uiiink you for space In which to apologize to Mr. Webster for having i,nad� some of my views on local govurnuK'ntal matters public.

For the benefit of the w.nty who would not have an opportunity of reading this special gem of inlorniation, Mr. Webster should have (luotcd It. and then explained how he initended to adapt it into his lino of jugument in the matter under dlsdiiHsion; my denso-ness in being unabl'! lo gra.sp his in; tentlon in this matitr may be the result of ray Rip Van Wiiiklins lor so long, but it it is his inU'iition to work this off as an arKuniont, or for the purpose of a compaiiHon of the two governments, LotbbridKe and New York's, then he is not treating I he, i:ttli!una of Ni.w York City fair, for their city is KOvorn(!d i)y a democratic form Of government, and our city is governed along tlu! llnfK ot the Doukbobor form of Kovurnmcnl. and as the one is dianictrically o|)))osed to the other, it l.s not fair to tiio citizens ot New York City to even hint at a comparison, and may cause hard feelings for doing so but .\lr.
