THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR A complete rout of tho Austrian armies in Galicia following the cap- ture of Brody, has been effected by the 1 Russians. One whole Teuton army is said to have been surrounded, and 1 the railways behind the Austrian lines liavc been destroyed. Farther to the north the Germans are withdrawing from Hovel, which i threatened by the Russian forces. The entire failure of German count- er-attncks on the west front, is re- corded by the French war office.

The whole world is getting at the right word to apply in such cases Capt. Fryatt was murdered for a Franc Tireur "crime" as the Germans call He was in charge of the Great Eastern Railway Company's 'steamship Brussels which vessel was recently taken by Hun destroyers iniu the harbor of Zeebrugge. Previously Captain Fryatt, it was alleged by his captors, had tried to sink a submarine. For this he was tried by naval court- martial and executed. .Reprisals on Germany is the talk on every hand following the death of this brave man. For months the Brit- ish refusedlo use gas against the Ger- mans who had introduced that hellish trick, blacklisted by honorable bellig- erents long ago. But the British are .using gas now aad the Germans whine. The British have long refused to make I air raids over German towns by way of reprisal for Zeppelin raids. But haying shown their good intention so long, we believe the world would "wel- come the spectacle of German towns .being bombarded from the sky so that the Huns would realize what their Zeppelin tactics really mean. And lor such crimes as the murder of. Edith Gavell and Capt. Fryatt there should "be some repirsal. The Huns fight be- low.the belt, what is the use of treat- ing them with honor that is not due them? and by dishonest business methods at our shall demand a heavy day of reckoning by the invin- cible power of our moral influence." BOURASSA REBUKED BY HIS FIGHTING COUSIN Henri Bourassa has been rebuked and his own cousin did in in such a clean-cut manner that the manner of it will bear repeating. Bourassa and his cousin. Staff Captain Taibot K. Papineau, D.S.O.. are both grand- sons of the famous Papineau of fame. Writing to Bourassa the captain says: "You and I have had some discus- sions in the past, and although we have not agreed upon ail points yet I happy to think that our pleasant friendship, which, indeed, dates from the time of my birth, has hitherto continued uninjured by our differ- ences in opinion. Nor would I be the first to make it otherwise, for how- ever I may deplore the character of your views I have always considered That you held honestly and sin- cerely, and that you were singularly free from purely selfish or personal ambitions. 'Very possibly nothing that I could have said in August, 1914, have 'caused you ,to change your opinions, but I did hope that aa events developed, and aa the great national opportunity of Canada became clearer to all her citizens, you would have teen influenced to modify your views and to adopt a different attitude.

This finding vindicates all that has been said regarding Colonel Allison's operations. It is not a surprise. From the first, there lias been no room tor a difference of opinion as to the char- acter and conduct of this gentleman who received such exceptional onpor-. tunities for his particular business dealings from General Hughes and ins j associates, and 'for whom General i Hughes has never failed (o vouch as i a patriot of the purest character.

Admiration such as General Hughes, has consistently expressed for Colonel Allison is incompatible witli a proper regard for official sagacity .and acu-. men It Colonel Allison is condemn-1 ed for deceiving General Hughes as to the use he was making of their relations, what is to be said about, the Minister deceiving thfi public as to Allison's real character after he had the same opportunity of learning it as the judges? The castigation of Colonel Allison ill tho report of the Meredith-Duff Commission exposes General Hughes' public defence and eujogy of the no- i torious middleman, continued long af- ter there was no room por honest doubt as to, Allison's misconduct which must he regarded as an effort to shield wrong-doing and to condone graft, despite the unaccountable -sil- ence of. the commissioners on this specific point. The commissioners in- ferentially represent Hughes as a tool of Allison, and then proceed to white- wash the former. Their omission of any reference to Hughes' professions respecting Aiiison, form part of the evidence, will cause more than passing wonderment. General Hughes' 'vindication1 read alongside of Colonel Allison's condemnation is poor con- solation to tiie adherents of the form- er, who have been looking for a pen- era! acceptance of all and every state- ment so emphatically and rashly made by the Minister of Militia.
