THE PROGRESS OF the WAR. Despite increased difficulties which present themselves to the allies, their steady advance along the entire bat-llefront in France continues. The British, while having halted before Cambral, on the Arras-Carabrai road, rre bringing up their forces along the Canal Dh Nord towards that city, evidently -with the purpose of concent- tory, and second In keeping after the Doi;ninlon govemnieni until some dozfen test wells have been sunk and flowing water secured. The water from these wells has not only been a trenjendous boon this year, but these wells indicate Just about,how deep it is necessary to go anywhere in their vicinity to secure water, and what it will cost. Nothing of this kind has so far been attempted in Saskatchewan, -where the need is quite as great. If any rnan in Western Canada deserves to have a statue erected to him it is President Mnruoch, and though he may never achieve that distinction, he will certainly have the abiding gratitude of the women ot that country, who. before these wells were established, had to count the cost of using an extra dipper of water and who knew what it was to have to use wator first to wash their children; then Uie children's clothes and finally the floors, before they dare throw it away. the match tax and match prices. .Matches go up in smoke, we all know, but recently they piave developed a -way of going up in price that threatens to overshadow the other way.' The Hamilton Herald states that they "have started a conflagration in the Canadian newspapers" on this account. The Toronto Star is credited with starting the conflagration by publishing the Jesuit of an investigation showing that while the government imposed a tas ol five cents a box, the price to the consumer has been increased by nine cents. It says: As the imposition of this tax by the government was made the occasion '. tor an increase in the price of matches rating as strong a force before the city defences as possible before mak-j to the consumer of ^niiie cents pw tag an effort to take the place. j box the goTernment should go after The British have also made progress i "'le cents, and not be content towards St. Quentin, from which place their forces are now only nine aniles. The French continue their progress In the region of La. Fere and 'towards Laon. baseball adjourned. tJlL war is over, Baseball as a professional sport is done until after the war. One has only to read the reports of the attendance at the world's series games In Chicago last w'eek to see that the game Is through till Kaiser Bill has been licked. One doesn't need to go �o far afield to learn the fact. Right liere in lL�thbridg6 there was little or no Interest displayed. Other years the Herald bulletin board was the centre of attraction during the series and the telephone bell buzzed con-.tlnually. This year there was hardly �n enquiry during the first three games. Baseball is a great game, but as an occnpation for big strong men during �'ar times it isn't popular, and w'e are' inclined to think the ball players thepiselves were pleased when Gen. Crowder issued his "work or fight" order some time ago. Baseball will continue to be a great, game, but it will be played by amateurs in this country, and by the eoldiers behind erta Veteran, the soldiers' paper in Calgary, for a list of all beneficiaries under the act, its claim being that a considerable number of alien enemies have received loans from the government. .Mr. Stevens says that no loans have knowingly been made to alien enemies, and reasonable care has been taken to protect the government from Imposition of this kind. It may be possible, the commissioner states, that an occasional alien has got by, but the percentage will In any case be exceedingly small. As a matter of fact, he further declares, there have been hardly any alien applicants who have sought to take advantage of the loan. As for furnishing a list of the beneficiaries, the Alberta Veteran has been tojd that the department's staff, already working at high pressure, cannot undertake to copy some 2000 names and addresses, but that the books will be available for inspection on application to the minister. � TO ASK GOVT. FOR THE OEPENOENTS Soldiers' Commission Will Ask For Increase in Amounts -From Patriotic Fund S. J. Shepherd attended a meeting ot the returned soldiers' commission tion to provide the funds asked for! Cheques or orders should be made payable to the Treasurer, 'Red Shield Campaign Fund, and mailed . to any of the following committee:-P. L. Nalsmlth, Manager Department of Natural Resources,-C. P. R., Calgary, honorary president; R. J. Lydlatt, MtnageiS Grand Theatre, Calgary, president; C. G. K. Nourso. .Manager Canadian Bank of Commerce, treasurer; B. L. Ricliardsonj Manager Calgary Industrial Exhibition and Secretary Alberta Live Stock Associations, secretary, Business Men's Committee, Galgar^. in lJ}dmont(|n last week. Acoording to ihti Bdmonton Journal more money from the Patrlotlo fund for the rellef_ of soldiers' dependents Is one ot tiiealms and doslros ot the comml^Bion, The approach oC winter and th'e prospect ot lhureas6d'"'dlfficul-ty during the flOl4 months, on account of the high odst ot living, are given as roaaons tor tlio request, whicli will go forward to Uio federal authorities In the way of n formal rosolution. The government Avlll.'Be asked to take necessary steps' to aoa that the widows, children, nnd dependents of officers and men killed In service may bo given allowances � from the Patriotic funds, the preaeht regulations applying only to wives and dependents ot men soldiers still living. A temporary addition to all patriotic allowances 16 meet the increased cost of living, particularly in the Item of coal, will also ha asked tor as a provision for the winter months. Premier Stewart, cliairman ot the commission, presided at the mooting. It is possible that ail meetings ot the board may in future be held iu Edmonton, as the southern members liavo expressed a preference for the capital, on tjhe ground that it is nearer the headquarters sources of information'. The resignations of J. Jlck. Grady and P. H. Cleland from tho membership ot the commission were dealt with, and the provincial Great War Veterans' association will be asked to make appolntmefits to tho vacancies. No definite notion In regard to the establishment ot national labor as/eu-: cles was taken, and for the present the labor branch work ot'tlio commission, througb Us four local ohices, will bo continued as before. Tha necessity- ot Bocurlng additional assistance tor the wives, widows and relatives ot soldiers was recognized na urgent nnd inovitablo. With the likelihood of a hard winter confronting them, theao dependents ot the empire's (lofcndera could not possibly got through, it was felt on tho present scale allowances and pensions. There would he difficulty In securing additions to tho pensions, the board realized, but in lieu ot such increases something might be done in the way ot an amending order-ln-councll per-' niltting ividowa to-clfiSB with wives on the Patriotic list, and action along tUeao linos will be asked ot the Ottawa authorities. The commission also endorsed a suggestion that tho Patriotic allowances now being paid to wives ot soldiors should be Increased tor (he winter month.'. In order to provide for the heightened living costs. ' Coal alono had gone up. it was' pointed out, some $2.50 a ton since last, winter, and actual, hardship would be imposod upon scores of soldiers' families unless tho present payments from Patriotic funds were Increased. A maximum alIo^v'' anco will probably be recommended, and cahes will then be dealt with individually.

ALLEN IS MFAREWELL Retlaw, Sept. 6.-A group of friends of Constable H, Allen met at the Canadian Bank of Commerce today, on the occasion of tbe departure of tho constable, to take up new duties at tha headquarters office at Lethbridge. Mr. J. F. Fraser, manager of the bank, on behalf ot those present asked Constable Allen to accept a purse of $50 In gold as an apreciatlon of the esteem and regard' in which he was ^eld by his friends In Retlaw. He was also the recipient of numerous other presents. Constable Allen Is an ox-member of the R.N.W.M.P,, and has been stationed at Retlaw for the greater part of a y.ear, in the Alberta provincial force, and by his courteous behavior and gentlemani^ conduct has made many friends. The wonderful and free service to the bo.vs at the front, to their needy families at home, and especially to the children who have lost thn'.r mothers since their fatherj >^-ent oA'erseas, entitles the Salvatior. Arity to the active support of those of us who are left at home. It is essential that this unselfish and efficimit ser-vico .should be contlrued without interruption, and this can only be done it the necessary funds are fortbcnm-ing. The needs are greater as tho war continues and thousands of families have the Salvation Army to thank for very real help during these terrible times. To provide for the needs of the Army the comparatively small sum of $25,000 has been asked for from Al-berta; south of Red Deer. The men of Calgary, realizing the splendid work that the Army is doing, have undertaken to secure this amount. A thorough canvass ot the city I.S to be conducted the second week in September, when It is hpped $20,000 will be .secured. Residents outside of Calgary who appreciate tbe splendid work being done by the Salvation Army are being asked to provide $.^,000 or one-#!tth of the required amount. Of the $25,000 asked for, $10,000 is for their work ovei'-Boas, $10,000 to help in providing accommodation for -tha children whose fathers are overseas, ^nd who in many cases would be scattered and qulto unprovided for except for the unselfish aid given by this organization, the balance, $5,000, is to be used for their general charitable work, which has earned the kindest com-nientfl from those familiar with what the Salvation Army is "doing.
