THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR It is quite evident that the central powers are not. to be allowed to con- centrate for ;m offensive such as Ver- dun for the remainder of the war. Every day's batch of dispatches bears out this point. It may appear that the allies are not advancing so readily BE might' be desired. But they are keeping up that, steady hammering on every front that is a more severe strain on the Teuton forces than any fart peace, over then across tho seas nre our relatives, our countrymen, in the trenches, arid on the hills and in the valleys, facing death that we might live and retain civilization, freedom and liberty. Mr. Goode is one of thousands who has given his life for us? His 'death is simply an example 01 tiie sacrifice. What are we doing, those- of us at home? Very little! Let us resolve'to do more, willingly, gladljvutuir this war is won. and the deaths' of dear friends and relative? are avenged-and peace shines over the wor.ld MR. ROGERS'AND HIS PURPOSE One has only to read the Winnipeg Telegram of Friday to fathom, the rea- son for Bob Rogers' attack on the judiciary. In Justice Gait's case he wanted to antagonize the judge, so that, if a finding involving Rogers re- other plan of campaign. Sunday's dis-jsuited, he could declare in parliamen patches told of the widening' Russian i and ou) hustings that, the juilg- oft'ensive all the way from the Gulfjmeut was that of a prejudiced man. of Riga to the Rumanian frontier.

The nilied army on the Macedonian front is making progress toward Monaatir. Oil the Italian Irout the enemy is be- ing forced back toward Trieste, while on the west front the French and British keep pounding away on the j tempt of Somme with an ever-shifting off en-' sive which the Germans seem power- less to check. With this state of affairs on all fronts it means that the Teutons musi keep every part of the great ring up to greatest possible strength, and that is what taies resources more than meeting a concentrated offensive at aay one point. And the perfect under- standing which now exists between all the allies allows for a maintenance of this steady but telling pressure. zeppelin raid over' the east counties Saturday night was the most disastrous attempt yet from the enemy view. .They lost two mannings'.

R. will accede-to the request for a. better passenger train service on the Crow's Nest line and 'on the Foremost branch this winter. The requests-, arc not unjust. The company will meet them. No better evidence as to the increase in passenger traffic centering on this point is needed than a surrey of the hotels here any-day ..in the week. They are full to overflowing at all times. Commercial men who have been avoiding Lethbridge for a couple of years are flocking Here." This .isia-sign the C. P. R. should not over- look. In.connection with the request for improvement in the Crow line service fthe- company will admit, that business ini coal and lumber was .never better and that the "line has promfse -of- a moat prosperous This territory is-in the Lethbridge distributing area, prefeent train service-.is to- tally inadequate to allow travellers to cover the line with any degree of satisfaction. 'As for the Leth bri d ge-Weybnrn the present service is not .fair to the1 people along the line. If the ser- vice is. given the, people will use.it. Otherwise. they will, reluctantly.: stay at home .The Board of Trade was wise in confining its request for an improved sieryice to the two items mentioned. Many other requests might properly have been made but by concentrating action on the two requests the'com- pany; should perceive thai the city is trying to deal fairly -After ''pretending .for-'days, to be sitting as an impartial Investigator of certain "facts, he fraiitely threw aside its assumption' of and rendered on the spot a verdict against Mr, Rogers, whom, as everybody in Winnipeg know, Mr. Gait ami Mr. Phillips (the prosecuting counsel) had been-hired-by the-Norrls politicians to Here in cold type is a brazen charge that "a" judge of the High Court of Manitoba was "bought. No wonder Justice Gait declared on Saturday that "it is time to let people know that the administration of justice in this province must not be interfered with either by newspapers or individ- uals, and that if they do so they will have to-be checked up." The Telegram shows its band when it says: "'Gait has shown his was the general opinion." That was the impression Mrl Rogers started out to make when he attacked the judges, and he brought his organ along to emphasize the plot. Rogers is In a tight box. He knows It is a case of political life or political-death for him. To cover-up the sins .that are being charged against him, he .makes an uncalled for the bench. His target at the moment is one of his own appoin- tees to the bench. That does not inatter" to him in his desperation.

D. S. CHUKCH AT MAGRATH RICKED UP IN FOR THE' 'BUSY MAN in order to blot out. If possible, the darkness surrounding himself. Who.is.Mr. Justice Gait? He is a of one of the most eminent families in Canada. His father. Sir Thomas Gait, was a Chief Justice of Ontario, and a, relative was Sir Ales Minister of Cana- da, llr. Justice Gait, prior to going oh the bench, was a Conservative, but like almost all our judges, he shed his politics when he took a seat upon the bench. There is no question he would desire to be fair to Mr. Rogers, an old friend; .but Mr.'Rogers in his alarm thaf-be might be forgot the dignity of forgot Sir.
