', - THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Bad weather having blocked the drive of the British and French on the Belgian front, the allied forces are occupying their time in consolidating positions gained, and the artillery is engaged in again pounding the enemy lines. Counter-attacks by the Germans have been successfully repulsed. British forces have recaptured positions lost some weeks ago on the Yser front. The prisoners taken in the new offensive total over r>.00Ji. The drive is proving the most extensive of the war. Huge numbers of guns are being used and the bombardment is terrific. Canadian forces are not engaged in this drive. They are still holding their lines at Lens, and their guns have so demoralized the garrison of the great industrial city that they are being replaced by fresh troops.

AND HIS NAME WAS CLANCY., : Some day the fame of the first man to carry the Stars and Stripes Into battle "in France' is going to be almost a legend in this- country. Just recently the world-learned his name. -It was.Clancy, and;he was a member of a Canadian regiment at Vimy Ridge. An exchange has 'this to 'say about the young man who" has already gained considerable notoriety: gust ing in the extreme. These facts are not to be denied, but it is time that the country as a whole was rising above this sort of thing. The opportunity seems to have presented itself [or the formation of an united government (hat will not need to stoop so low, that will not need to be afraid of the crack of the profiteer's whip. There arc those ori the Conservative side that will have nothing to do with any movement whereby any Liberals are to be taken into the government. They say they have the Grits in a hole now and can make them squirm. They see a chance in the present crisis to make the Tory party safe for years to come, and they are working to the limit to press the advantage. On the other hand, there are Lib erals who say they can see in the in onto decided to ask t^he Ottawa government for a bonus of )25 a month as from January 1, 191*. Through the death of H. H.

On the head of its owner is .a i British field artillery cap, tilted "at a' rakish angle and on the sleeve of the in his 96th year. Charles H. C.

The figure is posed with a careless nonchalance amounting almost to impudence. But under the picture there appears the words: "Gunner. Clancy, first to carry Old Glory into action In France." We do not' even know Clancy's jilrst name, but we hope it is Fat or Mike or Dennis. Such names would fit admirably into the general scheme ot things in which Clancy is Implicated. It appears that jfMancy Is. a native of Texas and that he Joined^ a Canadian regiment early In the war, was wounded at Neuve Chapelle, Combles and Gommecourt, and is now recovering from being almost burled �live. The city of-Ottawa Iras applied to the Ontario railway board for the establishment there of - two municipal fuel depots, for - which the sum of $60,000 has been allocated; by the city council. ...... Ten masked French-Canadians at | the point ot a revolver are reported ' to have stolen 350 pounds of dynamite at Montreal. It is also reported that big stores ot explosives are: hidden to blow, up .Victoria bridge oh the occasion of conscription.; going into force. ' ;: ?' V.'.v PESSIMISM HAS - ' NO PLACE IN THE SOUTH. Business men and others in the towns and cities should reserve their pessimism regarding crop conditions until after threshing returns commence to come in. It they become unduly pessimistic they are liable to curtail their stocks of merchandise only to And that the crop is much.! butter thfl,n the expected and they cannot meet the demand. It can only be said that Southern Alberta is producing a wonderful apectacle this year. Fields which hare not fiad a drop of rain since The middle of June are going to produce average crops. Summerfailowed crops are going to be much better than was expected a couple of weeks ago.

The country has had enough ot election winners for the -time being. In peace times they may furnish some diversion. But In war times their place is In the background so long as they are engaged In that sort of business. . The country has had enough ot Bob Rogers. They are suspicious of him, and rightly so. Ho U like a rod rag to a bull to the Liberal with strong party affiliations. There are leading Liberals who affect the partizan Conservative in the same way. But The Herald hopes and believes that, between two extremes, there is a great mass of Canadian electors whose first idea la to win the war and who are ready and eager to drop air politics for that purpose. The Pnitaoi) 8tates seems to be starting out with the desire to keep partizan? ship and profiteering down to a minimum during the war. President Wilson seems to be doing so fairly well, although members ot bis cabinet are accused of making the war work to the ends ot the Democratic party. If that opinion spreads in the United States to such a degree as it has in Canada it will be a sorry day for the States. As for Canada, it the opportunity has come, as it seems to have come, to form a union government and thus do away with the evils of partisanship for the rest of the war, It scemti to us that such an opportunity should be embraced. If we were defeated ,ln this war through failure ot Canada to do her whole share through wrangling over politics, it wouldn't make much dilt'er- A suit in. equity "was begun In, the supreme court at'New York,.by. the National Council pf the/Boy Scouts of America to restrain, the. organization knowir as the "'United- .
