Sunday four years ago was a dny that Tvill long be remembered throughout the British Empire. It was the day preceding Bri&in's declaration of -war against Germany and on behalf of lltUo Belglmn. 1.; Atthat.tlme few thought the war .would last four years. When the late 'Earl ICltohener announced his belief i m^.\UjB^5|oi^^^^ last three-years -'it Wfirfi.tbipughV'inpbsslble. Bat that : �pericld-.i'ajs'now been exceeded, by oneo^ear and we are entering on the ' fifth Vearof war. � Xi^ jfpurtJ) year of the war has � been .a .series vt ciiises In which the ' allied' world has had many anxious \aionwnt3. Tho �debacle of Russia a . year., agft-'lafet �spring paved the way '.for a supreme effort on the part of .'.the enemy. With Russia out of the .way, attentiftu was turned to Italy, � Sand there last fall a defeat was ad-miniatered, .whi9h, ha(J the Huns eervcs drawn from the allies, turiiod ; tho budding German victory into the ' worst defeat he has sutforort since tho , battle of tho Marno In "Soptoiubor, \ 1914, when tho Ilun was driven back to tho Aisno after fe.ic-hiiiB tho very gates of I'avis. The cud ot tho vie- j tory Is not yot. Sunday's dispatches tell us that Imth flanks of tho German army which occupied the salient for tho drive have lioon turned ou the Vo9le anil .Visno rivers and It ap-ponr.9 as If the oiioiii.v would have n hard thno to niako a stand within a reasonable liistanco of tho commencing point 01" the battle. Prisoners have been taken in thousands and much booty has fallen to tho nliies. The victory should hearten tho allies for their entry into tho fifth year ot the war. It is fitting that the now ally, America, should have had an important part in tho great victorv-which marks tho closo of tho fourtli year of tho war. Tho Americans have added tho numbers which have taken �from the enemy tho numerical superiority ho"enjoyed in the spring. With such a good beginning, .lud with hundreds ot thousands ot fresh troops coming up from the reserves, the American.- should develop such confidence that they will in a short time J)e comparable with the best ot tho oiier troops of the allies. Another important step forward has been taken during the year in tho decision to unify the allied commaud under Generalissimo Foch, a master strategist, 'l^he Russian'situation, is also taking a turn for the better. The Huns have been unable to TOanipulate tho Itusslan resources as they would-wish and witl^ allied intervention In Siberia a change on the eastern front may 'come qufckly. Certain it is, the present allied victciry will have no 111 effect on swinsmg the various Russian factions into line once more. � And, as she has been from the first, ^Britain is still supremo on tho seas. 'For over two years the German high seas fleet has never challenged the British. The submarine Is coming �n-jder control in a perfetcly aatlsfacfbry manner as may be seen by tho fact that during June more than 300,000 T American soldiers' were tranaported across the Atlantic. Important allied successes have been recorded in other theatres ot the ^ar during the year, notably in jresopotamla. On the whole the allies are entering the 'fifth year ot tho war In splendid -shape, with manpower requirements rising all the time as against a cim-tinuBl depletion of the G^man numbers. And the most encouraging feature ot all is the reversal ot form shown during the- past five months. There are many weeks of hard fighting ahead as yet, but It Is believed now the tide has turned, and that Germany, after one more winter of war, will not have much stomach to fqce what the allies have In store before August 4, 1919.
