Revengeful Blacks Steal Ammunition and Kill Many
Persons
Houston, Texas, August 25:���
Thirteen deaths are reported so
far resulting when negroes went
on the rampage yesterday. Colored troops in Houston, maddened by the treatment meted out
by the police to one of their
number, openly flouted their
superiors, raided an ammunition
tent and ran amuck. The first
victim to fall before them was a
15-year-old white girl. Martial
law has been declared. One
hundred of the soldiers are miss-
fhg. Three companies of coast
artillery regulars from Fort
Crockett have reinforced the
guardsmen and have succeeded
in partially maintaining order.
Under military law the mutineers
may be shot.

'"pHE man on the street, in nine cases out of ten, will agree that
*��� this is no time for a Dominion election. With Canada
straining to do her utmost in assisting the Empire in the great war
she should not be required to meet the extra expense and suffer
the needless interruption of a political contest.
It seems a pity that the country should be thrown into a turmoil.
Yet it appears as if the politicians, or a section of them at least,
seem determined upon an election, although the vast majority of
the electors are against it.
The Liberals are forcing the election issue. That seems to be
reasonably clear when we remember that Premier Borden offered a
"fifty-fifty split" in a coalition war cabinet and Sir Wilfrid Laurier
refused it. Sir Wilfrid refused to accept conscription and in that
stand has obtained the endorsation of the Winnipeg convention of
Western Liberals.
The Liberals take the view that the record of the Borden
administration, particularly with regard to war contracts, etc., is
not such as to entitle it to continued confidence of the people, If
the present Opposition was in power it could do much better, it
considers.
The ordinary man might be inclined to appreciate the argument
of the Liberals, but for the fact that he cannot help but cherish
the fear of W-hat would happen to Canada's war contingents if Sir
Wilfrid came into power with a solid anticonscriptionist Quebec
behind him. Laurier is against conscription at the present juncture.
That much is clear. He is dominated by Quebec, which is against
conscription at any time. Sir Wilfred would attempt another great
voluntary enlistment movement, but it is doubtful if it would have
much success in his native province.
Here in the West the most of us believe that the time for
conscription has arrived, in fact it is overdue. Manv of us go
further and think that the Liberals should have joined the
Conservatives in a war government. Failing that they should have
at least come out flatly for the conscription bill and the support of
conscription candidates pledged to see the measure put into
complete and thorough operation.���Ex.

On June 30 Canada had 132,279
troops in France. Of these the
four fighting divisions absorbed
some 80,000, although by no
means that number are what is
known as front line troops. The
balance of the Canadians in
France are engaged with the
Railway Construction Corps, the
Forestry Battalions, the Army
Service Corps, the Army Medical
Corps and various other non-combatant units.
Silver Aids Cobalt

The 30-cent  rise since  the low

ELIMINATE WASTE
Eat  What  You   Need,   but  Do
Not Waste a Crumb
Do not waste a slice of bread.
There is an old saying, "Many
mickles mak' a inuckle," and if
there are many individual savings
the total gain will he great. Do
��� not be too proud to notice whether
anything usable is being wasted;
do not be too proud to use odds
and ends which might otherwise
be cast into the garbage can. In
Chicago recently the garbage was
reduced from 400 loads a day to
200 loads a day,due largely to the
preaching of economy. Economy
in the use of foodstuffs should be
practised by those who live in the
country as well as by those who
live in the towns and cities. Get
the real vision of economy and
put it into daily practice. Every
individual must realize the food
shortage in all its magnitude and
he must realize what want and
famine would mean and then he
must put forth every effort to
prevent it. Do not leave it to the
other fellow. Do Your Part.
In this matter prevention is a
thousand times better than cure.
Eliminate all waste in your household.

Paris: Prisoners taken by the

200 machine guns.
Two incendiary bombs dropped
by two German aviators on two
hospitals behind Verdun on Sunday killed ten wounded men and
wounded 45 nurses.
Le Matin deplores the sending
of American troops anywhere
other than the French front,
there being a strong belief in
political circles here that Russia
demands on the eastern front
the presence of Allied troops. It
urges that Japanese be sent to
the Russian front.
Petrograd: Russian forces on
the northern end of the eastern
front, where the Germans yesterday began an offensive, have
retired under pressure from the
region from Raggedzem.to Kem-

Frankendorff region.
Amsterdam: Zeebrugge and
its environs was bom bed jy ester-

explosions occurred. The bombardment lasted ninety minutes.

Paris:     A   new   and   terrific
battle is reaching its climax on
the bloody ground about Verdun.
The fighting has developed   in
our favor.    The conllict extends
over a  front of 12 miles from i
Avocourt wood   to   Bezonvaux. j
On  both banks of the Meuse the |
French attacked   magnificently,
numerous prisoners being taken. '
The  bravery  exhibited   by   thei
French is Incomparable.
The artillery duel  in  Belgium
continues   violently  and theres i
considerable artillery activity  in i
upper Alsace.
London:     By sheer weight of
steel the British forces continued
their recessions of the  German
line in the Ypres-Poelkapelle sector today.     A  number of huge
tanks  aided in the British drive, j
The British losses are extraordinarily light considering the inten-l
3(t.y of the drive.    South of Lens I
the British made successful raids. I
are supported by floating and
fixed batteries and monitors, and
are marching forward to success
in spite of undiminished enemy
resistance, capturing 10.000 men.
Haig's drive in Flanders is
pressing forward, while the Canadians are getting a tighter giip
on Lens.
Petain's troops are driving
fiercely oirt of Verdun, and are
steadily increasing their pressure
along the Chemin des Dames and
in Champagne.
Russia alone of the great Allied
powers is not participating in the
concerted assault, but little Roumania, through her reorganized
and revived army, is making a
stubborn resistance to thp great
Teutonic attempt to encroach
upon the fragment of Roumania
left in Allied bands.

Rome: Mpre than 13,00(1 Austrians have been captured by the
Italians in the offensive on ihe
Isonzo front, with 13 guns. The
Austrians admit the loss of Solo,
on tne Carso plateau.
Petrograd: The Germans have
begun a drive between the Eirul
marshes and the river Aa, on the
northern line, and the Russians
have retired somewhat. In the
region of Dvinsk and Brodie the
enemy is bombarding heavily.
Vienna: It is believed Austria

proposals are carried out, but
