Tliai the Russians arc prosecuting their ad- vantage to the .lull-is seen frciu the report that. Germany is rushing troops to the aid of the Austrlans. Whether this move, hitherto successful, succeed this time, or whether it wil be a signal for an allied advance on the west remains to ho seen. These German tactics cannol always sue ceed; the time will come when her enemies on east and west will strih together at the right moment and German war machine will find that Us defensive hes at last begun to give war. Italy remains on the fence ready to jump at a favorable opening. If it is true that she has about concluded an agreement with Serbia which wll mean her entrance into the war, and It It is true that German submarines have sunk Italian vessels, there seems Jittie doubt that Germany will find herself facing a new enemy. The submarine blockade marks up another loss to the blocksders. it is now. definitely known that tha U--9 has been annk. At the rate Germany LES been losing .these wasps since February IS, there "seems little doubt that the blockade will never become more dangerous Iban it has been. It is more piratical than dangerous, and, without adding to Germany's adran- lage in any -way, has1 alienated most all sympathy ever held for her by neu- trals. Fire which broke out in M.

They urge, as they have 'done'for years, tlmt a de- pre'cidEiqn fund for each utility should at the end of the natural life pliant, there will be money in the treasury to replace it. There are arguments on both sides of the ..Question.

CAaCY, General Agent Ottawa, April most in- teresting development came at the evening sitting, when Dr. Neeley of Humboldt praised the.miniiter'of ag- riculture for his policy.of developing the livestock industry by the encour- of pure bred .sires, and then went.cn to Bay that.the British.and j foreign governments had warn- ed ont of the Canadian market for horses by the1 Canadian government until the Canadian government had heen supplied. ;Dr. Neeley character- ized this proceeding as a "miraculous and almost .criminal Injury to the horse breeders'.of this country." This brought a reply from H- B. Bennett of Calgary, who said that If Canada occupied u proud position at present moment jn regard to the. war it was due .to co-operation of the Canadian authorities with government. 'He said he. had consult- ed the records in regard to inter- est of western horse breeders and had found that the British, .government ivas at the time buying horses else- "where Canada because at the motneut .there were reasons ;agafnst buying in .Canada. He was .assured Ithat every .effort would be afforded to western horse breeders that could be given coaifstentiy with the effici- ent conduct of ..the .wan .The. chief reason why there was no market for western horses Wa that the horses were untrained and so were unsuitable for cavalry or othetiwar operations.. The and stated that there had arrange- ments fcelween.tUe 'Ah'ies on tliia subject. .Each, of -the governmtnts concerned did not need tbe same claaa of bprses, and as a. reault 'arrange- ments were made by which the idian government .would not preBume to" interfere. -The govern-, ment had, however, euggested that j there 'was in Canada a -supply of horses such as were not i one power and which might to another puwer, and that consequent- doubt that the persons who W charged with the duty, of buying hors- es for the first and second contin- gents wished to be gEnured of a suf- ficient supply to meet hot only the needs but also tbe wastages war. But there was a predominating, cause which led to the withdrawal of the British buyers which tie. was not ai liberty to make public: iHe would be glad, however, to give the hbn.. gentle-, man the information privately.
