THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Further substantial gains by allied forces are recorded in yesterday's dis- patches. Ou the western front ihe British line lias been advanced in the vicinity or' Trones Wood, and on the French front both at the Somme and at Verduu. gains have been made- Strong German counter attacks have been repulsed along the whole line. The Germans announce the with- drawal of their forces on the Russian front of ihe river. The Russians are active in the Caucasus, making further advances. The most substantial gain of the week is recorded by the Italians who In their offensive against the Austri- ans have raptured the Gorizia bridge- head with many prisoners. The possibility of Bulgaria's aban- donment of the Teutonic powers to join Russia or at least to withdraw from the war is now being speculated upon, with quite a confident feeling thai the little country is about to turn another somersault anil land on the side of.the allies. A recent despatch trout London an- nounced tout Lloyd George contem- plated a scheme tor the. acquisition at land by state compulsory purchase tor cutting up into small farms. The Laud Commission appointed by the British Government recently re- ported that there were no less than eight nnd a hilt, million acres In Eng- land, noy practically waste lauds, which could lie forested. Commenting on this. Mr. Lloyd George said: This is a very Important matter for Ihe state. Take Germany. Every acre ot Iknd of that sort in Germany is cov- ered with the most magnificent for- ests, providing employment for a pop- not permanent employment for a popula- tion ot over a million, and occasional employment for u good many more. The Germa-.i states are deriving evtry year from forests a net profit of over seven millions sterling lalid which we treat as per- fect waste. In another place Mr. Lloyu George said: "The land system of Great Bri- tain is a 'ghastly thing. The percent- age of cultivated land is lower than in any other country of Europe. This state of affairs is due to the fatuous and unbusinesslike methods of the land- lord." Many game preserves occupy areas which ousht to be devoted lo the pro- duction of food or timber. This is the first evil of landlordism in England and Scotland. But there is a second The large farms are. in the main, fair- ly rented. This is not true, however, with regard to the small farms, and it is to the creation of small holdings that Mr. Lloyd George's latest reform is directed. It is true that the Agricultural Hold- ing Act of 1906 improved the position of the tenant farmer, particularly be-j cause it provided that a dispossessed j farmer should be adequately recom- j pensed for the permanent improve-' ments which lie had made In the farm he had reined. But ihe Act did not go far enough. The reform uow ueed- ed is to get away from renting to own- ing. As Mr. Lloyd George says.

If this is true and we have reason to believe it then Cranbrook far- mers can look for a small share of money from the newly enacted law. At Any Price This hue and cry about the Van- couver plugging operations was pure- ly for politically effect. The cam- paign carried on against Macdonald previous to the bye-election proved conclusively that every effort was made to beat him. It was a case of get .Macdonald and get him at any price. The whole thing was a des- picable piece of dirty political trick- ery. It Is not necessary to go so fai- rway from home to iearu something of Conservative methods of winning elections. In Cranbrook they voted bri a dead man's name and one man bragged how he had voted seven times last election. The pluggers at' Vancouver were brought in by Con- servative heelers. The Vjvldonce in many instances bears out this state- ment. The doctor showed that the pluggers occupied rooms over Mr. Welsh's store and that Welsh knew they were there.
