On Sunday the raiders rea^ched the farthest north point they have yet attained, and succeeded in dropping bombs over one town in Scotland, on the east coast, where the deaths were nearly a dozen. The property damage in all the raids appears to have been small. There has been considerable fighting In the region of Verdun, east of the; Mouse, where the French gained ome ground. Heavy bombardments were In progress west of the Jleuse. The allies are taking steps to make the blockade of Germany more effective.

WHAT THE GOVERNMENT MUST PROVE The Ottawa Free Press, commenting on the charges which threaten lo disrupt the Conservative party, says that the government must prove the following in order to clear Itself of the.Btigma that attaches to the Allison contracts with the dummy American, .companies:^ What the Dominion government must prove, and prove emphatically without delay, is, first, that there was desperate need for the fuses; second, that the method adopted by the Bertram shell committee was the best and most expeditious method of obtaining the fuses; third, that the Contract price was the lowest that could be obtained, diligence having been shown In the securing of competitive figures; fourth, that the advance of several millions In cash to the; contractors was justified in the circumstances; and, fifth, that arrangements equally as satisfactory could not have been made for the manufacture of the fuses in Canada. If satisfactory answers to these .matters cannot be given the people will Judge, and in the Jong run the verdict will be with them.

(From the Ottawa Journal) Con-�ervatlve) To say that the ^.political atmoa. phere on parliament' hill la seething is putting It mildly. Tho name of Colonel John Wesley Allison l� on everybody's Hps, and he Is, so to speak, the centre ot attraction except that the centre Is not there. Ho cannot be located. Another name associated with him, because ho associated it himself, is .Major General Sir Sam Hughes, the renowned minister of mlUtla. He also Is absent but there Is no doubt about his whereabouts. The premier cabled him at length today. However, Col. John Wesley Allison is not the kind that leaves his addreas with everj-ljody. He slips out and nobody knows where he goes. A few weeks ago when he learned that the public accounts comraltteo wanted him ho disappeared. It was said he had gone to New York. Tho report was that the Liberal members of tliat committee, notably Messrs. Carvell and Kyte, had 'put a detective on his trail just to keen Informed of his movements. For a while the sleuth was successful In keeping his quarry In view, but suddenly John Wosloy disappeared again, and this time the enrtli seems to have opened and swallowed him up. Vague rumors have reached Ottawa that he went over to England on the same Dutch boat that carried General Hughes across the water. But so far this Is mere rumor. Suddenly Appeared All that Is known Is that the week before the General left the evasive: Allison suddenly appeared In Ottawa and had interview with General Hughes. Before.Messrs. Carvell and Kyte became acquainted with the arrival of John Wesley In the heart of the Dominion he was out again slap dash. The Journal man whose business it was to keep in touch with the affairs of the militia department met Col. J. Wesley Allison several times. By the way he la simply an honorary colonel. The "honorary" business was developed by General Hughes for the purposes of convenience of entry and exit. A mere civilian finds it hard to negotiate an entrance to the militia department. An Introduction General Hughes introduced liim with the remark: "This is my friend Col. Allison. He has done splendid work for Canada. He is saving the r.tapire millions of dollars." Allison was seated close up against General Hughes' right shoulder when the Journal reporter entered. He rose politely and extended his hand.' He beamed pleasantly, b.ut deprecatlngly at the kind phrases ot the minister of militia. "The colonel is far too kind," he remarked, for at that time the minister was neither "General" nor "Sir Sam." He is a man ot middle height, with ;a beautiful head of.snow white hair. jHis moustache is iron grey, and his A Lethbrldge boy is to join the avia tion forces.

WHY DOESN'T ITALY DECLARE" WAR ON HUNS? Italy has not declared war on Germany yet. It was announced some time last month that a declaration �would be made any day, but so far It has not been forthcoming. The anomalous position of Italy In this regard is worth considering, although it Is to bo vemembered all the while that Italy is in complete accord with the allies aa shown by the recent Paris conference, and the declaration Is not considered ot much conse-^luence. We set forth here, however, the Italian answer to the question as lumlshed by Dr. Racca of the University of Rome: Why did Italy not declare war upon Germany? The reason is that Germany and Italy have a treaty of alliance separate from and independent to the old alliance between Ausirla-Hiingaiy and Italy and the present alliance hetween Germany and Austria-Hungary. The break between Austria-Hungary and Italy did not in-.volve or necessitate a break between Italy and Germany. There was no occasion for war between these two nations. It is to the advantage of each to avoid war with the other. Qemany has the best of reasons for, not declaring war upon Italy. Teutonic interests have invested ahout' Uiree bilUonR of dollars in Italian enterprises. This ImmonBo Vjnvestmqnt would be forfeited by the .(perma' real one and it was said that the only frieud he had even in the cabinet "was .'he prime minister himself. He certainiy had very few amongst the private members of parliament. Cabinet Meetings AXHiat is going to happen no one can foretell. No ono Is minimizing the seriousness ot the allegations made by Mr. Kyte. When tho house adjourned in the early hours ot yesterday morning a meeting ot several of the cabinet ministers was held in the prime minister's room and another meeting was held later in the day. It is understood that General Hughes was communicated with at length by cable. It Is understood also that Sir'Alexander Bertram, who was chairman of the shell committee, and Is now in the south recuperating after his arduous labors, has been sent foi-.

In the fall of 1913 Colonel Seeley, then Secretary tor State for War In Great Britain, was playing golf one day with an old friend, one Hedley Francis Le Bas. At that time the army needed about seven thousand mon and was having a hard time get-ling them. Colonel Seeley happened to mention It. "Easiest thing in the world," said Mr. Le Bas. "Well, I like that!" said Colonel Seeley. "What's your remedy?" "Advertising." "Bah! We do advertise, and a precious lot of good It does," retorted the colonel. "Do you call what you do advertising?" queried ha, Bas. "You print a government proclamation on a sheet about the size of an ordinary letterhead. You stick It up in cow sheds Slid police stations alongside reward notices for murderers, and you expect prospective soldiers lo be Interested In your 6-point announcements. 1 don't call that advertising." "Then what do you call advertising, may I ask?" said the colonel, by now very Interested. I'd advertise for men in just the same way that I'd advertise for purchasers ot tea, soap, or tobacco, I'd make my 'ads' Interesting. I'd make my readers want to enlist, I'd 'sell' them to the army. I'd take full pages in the leading papers. I'd point out every good feature that the army poasessed. I'd dwell on the sentimental side a good deal, and play up the patriotic service of the act. Then I'd iiave the readers send In for a free booklet giving a detailed account ot every interesting feature ot army life, foreign service, for instance, and so on. That's what I call advorllalng." The War Office thereupon asked Mr. Le Bas to prepare plans along these lines. He did so, and was given an appropriation of twenty thousand dollars to foot Uie bills. His "copy" did the trick ut only R7 per cent, of the former cost of raising recruits. And thareby hangs a tale. In A\i;{ust, 1914, when tho present war broke out and men were wanted in millions, the War Office remembered Its previous advertising oxperlqpce and promptly sent for Hedley li^anols Le Bas. He formed a committee of tho leading ftd-wrltera In England, and together lUiey produced all the adverllalug that llshlng Company. He' Is also a director of George Newnes, Ltd., and C. Arthur Pearson, Ltd., two ot the largest magazine publishers m Great Britain.-McLean's Magazine.
