THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. The, allies hare again re�um�d the offeMive when It was oonfldently be-lIoYed that another lull li;"the fighting was; about to occur. This bodes 111-for tho German forecs still In the SlaHio* salient. The fighting-Is now on a-ten-mile front between the Crise and the Oiiroq Riyers, and the advance  is being steadily carried on. The offensive yesterday capture4 the heights of the Crlse which are important dominating positions, and ttfe prl-eonors are reported to toXHrzH'obO. A CASE WHERE ADVERTISING PAID.  We are not going* to take-the-^credtt to ourselves but we could -not-~lielp ^ noticing that on. Wednosday^.the day ifter w6j)rotested lack of organized effort to make .tlio merry-go-round serve Its porposo, the street cars carried banners stating that the merry-go-round TTOuId be la operation on Wednesday afternoon and evening. And on Wednesday evening several street oars packed with kiddles re-ttimed from the park. This ahowi what can be done by advertising the attractions at the park. Provide the attractions and advertise them. Advertising pays. gnrdlng the district's posslbllitlce. Wo want t^l'so pe-islmism no more than wo want nnwiirrnnted optimism. GOVERNMENT'S RESPONSIBILITY IN GOAL PRODUCTION. Word came from Edmonton that tho report spread about two or three weeks ago to tho effect that a larger aniolint of U.S. anthracite ooal was to be allowed In Western Canada this winter was erroneous and the West will be forced to be content with 275,-080 tons from this source. The result ^ is that .Alberta must supply the bal-' anie,- and every effort must be put forth "td do 80. It seems strange to The Herald, in Tiew~of the grave Dosslbiflty of a fuel famine, that the government does not Invoke' soma powers to secure more miners. The domestic coal mines in the-Jjethbrldge district, recognjzed as the prodnoers of the beat lump ooal j in tie province are not producing mor^.than/^O-per cent, of the amount , ol coal they are capable-of producing and sU'because of a-shortage of mln-mv .SBiQly. t^ere are more miners to "ba; had, and surely the government oata'find th^m. it the government , wiahea-to avoid a charge next winter of Indifference to the Weit's fuel nayds^ A* tho contrasts of tho wont'ior, su tiioy c.Tu ba gryat sponders and grtvnt ooon-omlsts. And there is a good iloul in it. Wietlmr this holds good in our general war outlook it is hard to nay, but wo cortAinly at times got umluly optimistic whou thiugs seem to bo going well, and when tho pouduUnn swings back wo begin to wonder what tho armies over there are doing any-Jjow. After a long time of woai'inoss at tbo news from tho westorn front, we aro having a groat session of coutin-uod good reports. Evory day adds aomo more to tlio ground gained on the historic Rheims-Solssons salient. But none of us must lot this rift in tho clouds go to our heads and make us believe that at last Germany Is on tho run and tho Entente armies are now all aboard for Berlin. Wa assuredly ha-re every re.ieon to feel good over the genius of Foch, whldi has,'met a great Oerman drlvo and turned tlio tables on tho carefully prepared rush Into tho salient. We heartily hope,' all of us, that the tide has now turhed, and from now on the Allies will "-pfocoed' tfom victory to victory. Put tho way is still long and the enemy-is "by no means at tho beginning of the end of his resources. � 'There Ifi a medium course which is very much better for us tdSake. Pessimism Is .a ortinfi, but orjsr pessimism is both weakening and demoralizing. We would'do weir to' try and obtain that dogged,viewpoint of tlae man In the field who, after years -of fighting ki)o\y3 Just, bow- strong the enemy is, bow'great Is his ability In war. General-Poch has delivered a heavy upporout on the enemy-not a knockout. Thara-ara a good many rounda to be tought before Kalserdom is beaten to the ropes. The fortitude of patience under It all is necessary and there is a very big,.game for a\\ who do not actually fight in the field,- to play. A strong morafe at home makes for a stronger afniy. But everything that speaks of NOT playing the game detracts from tho morale of the soldiers in the field. It Is.Just this set-back to the crops .which la tending to bring us back to ! our old normal way of looking at tho war. A bumper crop would have been a Godsend to the Allies, but it might have had its insidious effect on those at home. Success is a mighty heady draught for some people. There has been a great deal of heavy spending on unnecesearies in the west during the last year. For a whole lot of people tills extra has made them think: "God is In his heaven, all's well with the world, there's a war on we know, but everything's lovely and it'll all come right in the end." That's criminal optimism when things are as they are in Europe. There's tho sane medium. It's up to every indivldnal conscience, and . if that playe false then we should urge night schools for the inculcation of patriotism: We o United States have boon stopped, says tho Neuwo Uotterdam Courant.

In it they claim that while Ontario has only 7,5GS pa'd-iip members to 11,573 in tho rest ot the Dominion, It ha.s 34 accredited delegates, while the rest of Canada has only S4. They disclaim tho impression that an attempt is being made to forn\ulnte a political organization with the Idea of running tho country, and declaro that "tho attitude adopted from time to time by tho Toronto and Ontario delegates ot Jeering and howling at outside delegates with whom they may not agree is not conducive to harmony or good results."
