THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The Germans in their attacks of the past few days have bent a sharp sali-.eut into the British lines between Vpres and Bethune. and by the capture of Jierville last night, makes the depth of that salient now more than ten miles from the starting point of the drive. This furnishes the most critical period the British troops have yet faced. That it is critical Is intimated by the trade, after the present hostilities j cease, unless the Central Powers [ come to terms with the Allies Without1 delay. A writer on economics in a ! Paris paper recently outlined a plan I of boycotting German products, some-1 thing nlongHhe, following lines: Tlie Germans ought to be told that if tboy agree to peace within six months their' prodjicts- will be ox-cludod from the Allies' markets for five years only; if the war lasts another year, our boycotting should con- j t in no ton years sifter the signaturo ! of peace, and so forth. It would thus bo' left, to Germany herself to decide how long the boycott on her trade would last. The weakness of suck commercial pacifism would seem to bo in thinking that Germany is governed by German traders. It has been made abundantly evident -within the last few-months especially that the people who decide the policy of Germany are the German military caste. The main effect of the last tariff threat, after the Paris conference, seemed to be to stiffen the hold of the German militarist party on the German traders and wage-slaves. Leaving out of consideration the likelihood that the Germans must expect to be boycotted for a generation, in any case, the plain answer to the economic ultimatum idea would seem to be that Germany's military- rulers have long since abandoned all regard for trade prospects, such as might be j based on pre-war ideas of world trade. As the London New Age's article ably brought out, "Prussia has come to regard herself as the predestined pioneer of the new world civilization- the civilization of German, kultur." The threat of boycott might possibly :�. Herman Umphrer, a pioneer settler of the'.

The Germans were successful last eight i); taking Merville. and their apparent aim in this direction is the railway Junction of Aire, about eight miles - farther on, but they have as yet failed to make but little headway towards this gbal. They were-repulsed in sharp attacks last night at other points also, and the British managed to regain a little ground at Festubert. QUEBEC AND WOMAN SUFFRAGE. The people of Quebec have ideas all their own. While the English-speaking provinces of Canada are practically a unit in declaring in faTor of votes for women, the French-Canadians are of the opinion that the wo men should stay at home and let the men vote. It appears as if the French Ganadiaus art; quite satisfied with the backwardness of that province and do not care' to follow the enlightened lead of Western Canada. However the women of Canada are to have the vote, and in the opinion Of the Herald it will lead to better conditions, even in Quebec. Certainly conditions there could not be much worse. The French-Canadian women, let us hope, will have a stimulating effect when they learh to appreciate the power of the ballot. HELP ALONG DAYLIGHT SAVING SCHEME. - When you go to bed tonight put the clock ahead an hour. That's what the daylight saving measure, which received royal assent on Friday amounts to. It is very easily done, and the plan will save many hoars of daylight during the six months it will be in effect this year. When you get up at eight o'clock on Sunday morn ing, it will really be seven o'clock, but after a few days you wfll forget that the clock has ever been changed. The Herald nas heard of a Lew in dividuaU who say the daylight saving �chemc is crazy. There must be a lot of crazy people in the world then, tor has it not been adopted 'in some 12 European countries and also in the United States. So the best thing for those who are opposed to fast time is to fall in line with the scheme and forget the opposition. And in reality, under the new plan, Lethbridge will be nearer to sun time than under the old scheme. At present we are taking our time from Broadview. We are much closer to Nelson where the clocks are advanced an hour over the mountain time under which we operate. The previous trouble with all attempts at daylight saving in Canada was that they were isolated. Cities made the attempt but as the railways could not change their time unless all changed it was necessary to have two different time pieces to keep track of the hours. This difficulty has bean removed and we expect the change to bp hailed with gladness. THE COMMERCIAL PACIFIST PLAN. - ; In spite of the experience of the Paris economic conference, in seeking 1 to weaken the enemy in planning war on German trade after the present ; war, there are still people who think Out the war can be shortened by such � eiebuomlc threats/ says the Ottawa Ci- thtan. Leading then, financially and otherwise, in Great Britain, the Unit- sfewjfi^ { :fevc$;of theAllies presenting an[ ultimatum to the Central Powers, declaring an extension of the war into ed desperate resistance; otherwise the militarists who rule Germany, and commit any and every crime with an easy conscience in the pursuit of civilizing the world, would be likely to treat the boycott ultimatum with contempt. Tha Prussian militarists are fighting for their continued existence. They are not amenable to trade bargaining or boycott threats. They rule in Germany, and they mean to hare world-power or downfall. So long as they survive, peace cannot apparently be won by commercial peace terms. The defeat of Prussian militarism would seem to be the only way open to the Allies to restore peace to the world. It may possibly be helped by revolution within Germany; and perhaps more use could be made of the diplomatic arm of the Allies in bringing the downfall of militarism about. Threats of boycott and tariff warfare after the war seem to be of doubtful value, however, in hammering at the head of Russia. Rev. Dr. J. G. Shearer, secretary of the Presbyterian Social Service department, has been invited to become the secretary of tha Social Service Council of Canada, Ulster Is ready for conscription but does not want Home Rule. The south of Ireland wants Home Rule but no conscription. " Lloyd-George proposes both and Ireland seethes. This is a funny old world. There's a lot-of talk now about the long range gun being-manufactured in Philadelphia that -will shoot 105 miles. If it should happen .to spot the. Kaiser It would be worth the trouble of making it. Otherwise It isn't likely to accomplish much more than the German scare {run. It is stated,that the Canadian Northern err shops at Port Mann will he put in operation shortly.

It has been suggested to the council that collections for the depreciation funds should be suspended until after the war. A. M. McDermott, B.3.A.. who has held the position as teacher of agriculture at the Collegiate 'institute, Weyburn, for two years, has been appointed to a position in the provincial department of education and will have charge of agricultural extension work in collegiate institutes. A r,-cent fare on trolley cars within the limits of Hartford, Conn., and as fare in adjoining towns now collected by the Connecticut (trolley) Company instead of the former 5-cent fare, is not an unreasonable rate, according to the Public Utilities Commission.

Pearson remarking that the soldiers appreciated the legislation the house had passed for their benefit said he thought they would have no Objection to the protection sought In the amendments. Personally he had none. Hon. Wilfrid Gariepy said there was a wrong impression as to the people who had been seeking the protection of this legislation. "I ara a member of the 101st," lie informed the house. "I joined it two years ago with no idea that this legislation would protect any member of the 101st. I have attended drill twice a week with no idea of protection from my creditors. I don't need it. I have met hundreds of men of all ages from the city, and district, and we can't say these men are paupers, and down and out. Mr. Ramsey-"I referred only to men who joined for a purpose." Mr. Gariepy accepting the Hon. members' explanation asserted that the 101st was not deserving o' all tho criticism that had been passed upon it in the house on several occasions The 101st he said had served its purpose in creating a proper spirit throughout the city, and he knew that hundreds of young men who had been drilling were ready to Join when the time of enlistment, came. On a standing vote the amendment was carried.

The pro- posed amendment was seconded by James Weir, Nanton. Hon. J. R. Boyle, rising to order, called attention to the rules that required notice when it was sought. to recommit a -bill to consider an important amendment. The speaker taking this view it was suggested that the opinion of the house could be taken on the simple question of recommittal. A standing vote was then taken on that issue, and the motion to recommit was rejected by 25 to 14. PRESBYTERIAN Knox Church Corner 4th Ave. and 8th "Street 8. Rev. Capt. A. h. Denoon, Pastor F.
