Your King and Country Need You Right Nowl THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The rapidly clearing weather on the Belgian front has brought a resumption of the offensive of the allies even before it might have been expected. Scarcely before the ground was dry from the recent heavy rains which have rnado attacks almost impossible, the British and French have been out Of their trenches and pushing forward to strengthen the positions gained in the first day of the battle of Flanders a week or two ago. Advances of considerable importance were effected by the British, and by the French on their left flank In Belgium, In the operations on Friday and Saturday. On the French front near St. Quontln the French troops also made further progress against the forces of the crown prince. On the Russian front the re-organized Russian armies operating with the Rumanians are pressing forward again. On the Rumanian and Buko-winian frontiers progress has been made, villages retaken and prisoners captured. This is a hopeful indication that the Teutons have once more been checked and that their drive on Odessa will have to be abandoned. much will havo to be left to the integrity of Individuals. But If the proper kind of campaign of education is carried on It will not bo long until people will consider themselves obligated to abstain from the consumption of beef, bacon and bread to the greatest possible degree. In this way every one of us will be able to do something more to help win the war. * PICKED UP IN* PASSING FOR TNB ?vsY MAN FIRST BREAK FROM WINNIPEG CONVENTION The first hint that the Liberal con-Tentlon at Winnipeg did not result In a consolidation of the Liberals of the west is given In the announcement that the South Winnipeg Liberal association Is calling a convention to consider the political situation. This Is taken to mean that they are not satisfied with the outcome of the Liberal convention. It would appear as if the west was about to produce a spectacle similar to that which prevailed in Ontario. A Liberal convention was held there some time ago when practically the same action was taken as at Winnipeg. Later a convention of conscription Liberals was called tor the purpose of consolidating the conscription-Ist wing of the party. The Winnipeg convention was not at all satisfactory in that it left itself open to the charge of playing a double game. The war resolution is capable ct a double meaning. Sir Wilfrid Laur-ler was not endorsed as Laurier but the- convention expressed the hope that the platform adopted could be carried out under him. There was nothing clear cut about what it really did mean. \ybat conscription Liberals of the west should do is to put themselves clearly on record. Unless they do they will be accused of playing a double game. The Herald has the greatest respect and admiration for what Sir Wilfrid Laurier has been and has done for Canada. But we do not agree with him on the conscription question and we see'no reason for leaving anyone to believe that we do. INTERPRETATION OF THE CONVENTION Interpretation of the attitude of the Liberal convention at Winnipeg on conscription and Laurier is not b:\su-d on air. it is true that the presence of Hon. Robert Ropers in '.lie government, the tour through the west of Sir Clifford Sifton. the ben hated Liberal In the country denouncing Laurier and the attacks upon the Liberal lender by Dr. Michael Clark do not assist in turning tbo tido to a xmited government under Sir Robert llorden. Rather those incidents attracted support and sympathy for Sir Wilfrid Laurier who, while his war policy is not generally endorsed by Liberals, is still strong in the affection of Liberals all over tho country. Attacks upon him by Sir Clifford Sifton, the conspirator against reciprocity in 1011. did not weaken Sir Wilfrid. Rather they strengthened him. Union government failed to get support because it was advocated by Clifford Sifton of whom the rank and file of Llherallsm are suspicious. The government led by Sir Robert Borden who was too weak to get rid of n man of the Bob Rogers type, could not gain support from Liberals, who wanted strong leadership. Yet tho convention went on record in favor of a non-partisan administration in the resolution condemning the partisan administration of the Borden governmen'. As to tho war, there is no question that the resolution passed by the convention means conscription. "All means to win" an expression in this resolution, can only be interpreted to mean eventual conscription. Many Liberals feel that a whole-hearted effort at voluntary recruiting under proper direction and fair methods, would get the recruits, but if it failed it is clear the Winnipeg convention wa3 prepared to take any other step meaning of course conscription, to get the men and keep the forces of the Canadians up to strength. Now we come to the resolution relating to Sir Wilfrid Laurier. It was not an endorsation of Sir Wilfrid's war policy. There was not a mention of a referendum In the wln-the-war resolution or in the resolution concerning Sir Wilfrid. The referendum was re- W, P.

If he should do so, he must repudiate the referendum therefore, and accept conscription if voluntary recruiting does not get the men through a thorough test under his leadership. There is no question about that whatever. Briefly, the Liberal convention is for conscription If voluntary recruiting under another test falls, It is against a referendum and consequently opposed to Sir Wilfrid's policy and It is for a non-partisan war administration led by a Btrong man and free from all barnacles.
