THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The advance of the Canadians on the front at Lens was over a front of 1000 yards to a depth of TOO yards nt most points. This advance places the Canadian troops in the outskirts of tho city, and gives them an increased advantage. Tho activity on the Belgian front has been confined to repulse of German attacks. The dispatches yesterday contained tho news that the Germans are planning a campaign with the Turks for the recapture of Bagdad, taken this sprint by General Maude. The British hare made extensive preparations for the defence of this ancient city �nd will likely have little difficulty in resisting any offensive by the Turks and Germans, which must of necessity be weakened by the greater lack of men now experienced by the enemy forces. The Russians are giving indications of resistance to the Teuton advance, and it is stated that they are preparing to make a determined defence now. about during tho past tow days as to what various delegation* from various dlstrlct.i will do that one la at a loss to know what will be the outcome. Frosa tho way the western Liberals in the House lined up on tho conscription bill, howevpr, there Is great hope that they will carry enough weight at the convention to swing it in favor of the Military Service bill, and once that is accomplished there should not be a great deal of difficulty in arranging for a union with eastern pro-conscription Liberals with a view to the formation of a coalition government which can safely appeal to tho people nt the coming election. One of tho leaders of Libera! thought in Canada is X. W. Howell, loader of the opposition hi the Ontario legislature. His views are very closely the views of the pro-conscription Liberals of tho Dominion, and he knows the need of conscription from his Canadians on the fighting lines. If western Liberals can get his viewpoint, and we believe they can and will at this convention, there will be no difficulty in deciding the future course of tho party west of the Great Lakes. Mr. Rowell, In a recent speech, said: You all-know my position. For ; nearly three years I have been giving my best thought and attention to tho issues of this war nnd Canada's participation in It. 1 arc by a proper organization of our man-, power and resources, we can reinforce 1 tllQ ltallaI1 shipyards, and maintain our present divisions nt ^PICKED MP IN-* JPASSJJVG FOR TUB BUSY MAN St. Lieut.-Col.

The venture Is a new one in this section of Canada but the way it has "caught on" to use a slang expression, is good augury for the tutors. Tho Chautauqua is something different from anything we have yet had to do with. It appears to be a sort of community week of education and entertainment. Lethbridge aims to lead as a community centre. If we do our part to make the Chautauqua a success, it will do much to strengthen us In our position. Attendance at the Chautauqua is not enough, though if you attend, enthusiasm and the Chautauqua spirit will soon follow. But we have many strangers within our gates for the. week. The most courteous treatment of these visitors, many of whom have come tor the whole week, �will do much to give the Chautauqua the flavor that will make it a success as an annual affair. Let us treat our Chautauqua visitors so well that they Will want to come again. They will l>e glad then to hear we are going to have Chautauqua week every year. WHEN 18 A TRIBUNAL REALLY A TRIBUNAL? Things have come to a pretty pass In Canada. A justice of the supreme court sits as a Royal Commission to determine whether a minister of the crown has been involved with his col leagues in a scandal which had brought about the downfall of those colleagues. This report is adverse to the minister In question and immediately another commission is appointed to Investigate his finding. In another instance a government appointed commission brings In a report, after an investigation, showing that a packing concern has made unjust profits at the expense of the people as a result of the war. The head pt the packing company objects, and a com-ajlsslon is appointed to revise the firBt oammlssioner's findings. Whero is it going to end ? Why shouldn't the man given 10 years for Kafe-blowlng be entitled to a commission to check up the judge's findings. It looks just as sensible. Our social structure is beginning to crumble when we find the sort of thing that has been going on in Canada of late. If we are taught to treat our tribunals as Russian tribunals are being treated by the Russian people at the present time we need not be surprised If we find ourselves as a nation heading lor the rocka. Applying my best judgment to the: sent to Its agents in the near east conditions as I found them and knew 1 where destitution is said to he great-them. I reached the conclusion some' er than in any other part of the Otto-months ago that Canada could not' man empire, continue to reinforce her men at the - front, could not maintain her posi- Dean, the former agent of the Im-tlon in the battle-line, could not con- ] perial Elevator company of Winnipeg, tinue her struggle for her own free-; at Colfax, was committed to stand dom, under the voluntary system, j trial on seven charges of forgery and reached the conclusion that; uttering, the preliminary hearing tak-compulsory military service was es-; ing place at Weyburn.

We cannot enlist men and j put them into the trenches at once.  They must have months of training j before they can take their places in | the firing-lino.' They should have at least six months' training. To put men in the firing-line who have not compelted their training is fair neither to the men, to their companions in arms, nor to the cause for which they are righting. I have looked into the question of our infantry reserves In Great Britain, j and 1 am convinced that, even if we; had our new recruits ready to com-1 mence their military training at this \ moment, before they could complete their training our infantry reserves would be exhausted at the present rate of wastage. The appeals that come to us from across the sea for assistance and support from our own officers and men are appeals which we cannot resist. We have asked these men to go there j and fight our battles; we promised i them that Canada would be behind them to the last man and the last dollar. How can we at this time fail to respond to the urgency of their need? And dealing with the problem of making wealth pay, he says: "Sometimes 1 feel that in spite of all the individual heroism and self-sacrffice shown by Canadians there is little sign yet of a real awakening. . . . I wonder who number the most -those killed in battle or those who have made money out of the war-I Bpeak only of Canada. The impression, inadequate, I am sure, but not without some justification-gathered by nearly every man I have talked to who has been home to Canada on leave, is that people there are more Interested in the money to be mado out of the war than anything else." Mr. Rowell's views are held by thousands of the less partlzan Liberals In Western Canada today, and It will be well for them if the Winnipeg convention leaves no doubt In the minds of the people of Canada that this 1b the case. During an electrical storm at Boy Scouts' camp on Kolb Fiats, along Grand River, Ont., abet three miles from Kitchener, Signal Instructor Alfred Mercer was instantly killed -by being crushed by a falling tree which had been struck by lightning.
