Ycur King and Country Need You Right Nowl THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The resumption of the offensive by the Russians on the Russian-Rumanian front, and the tightening of the grip of the Canadians about the city of Lens, are the features of the war dispatches at present. The Russian? have been very successful In the fighting of the past week. The Germans are gradually losing their hold on Lens, and the past few days have gained for the Canadians now points of vantage in the fight for this great mining city. British and French also are continuing to make gains on the Belgian front, and the French are pressing attacks .further cast in northern France. Tlio declaration ot war by China against Germany and her allies has l>oen officially announced, and brings still another power, of no mean proportions into the balance against Prus-sianism. * PICKED UP IN. tawa which is keeping the country on tenterhooks and which is causing much dissension among Sir Robert Borden's own followers at the capital, some of whom want Sir Robert to step out boldly and invite the Con-scriptionist Liberals to confer with him ns to cabinet reconstruction, and others who are doing their best to keep the government a strictly party j affair, believing that the electors of' Canada would not dare to shoulder | the stigma which would attach to a j victory for a party which appears divided on war policies. On the whole it looks as if the unionists had the better of the argu- \ ment so far, and this week is expect-1 ed to bring about a declaration which > will clear the atmosphere. j south produces a tremendous crop, sugar, and lumber needed in shipbuilding, shall be placed under the restrictions of the exports council.

At Osgoode Hall Mr. Justice Mas-ten gave judgment holding that tho Ontario extra-provincial corporation act of 1014 is ultra vires and invalid in all its classes. The purport of the act. he finds.

Ray Knight lives up to his Buffalo Bill advance notices. He is a westerner every inch. Lethbridge is assured of a monster fair next year. With Magrath and Raymond assisting it will rank with the best in the province. "Alfalfa" Kane has gold mining backed off the map if he can make his farm pay ?150 to $450 per acre raising alfalfa seed. The proposal that soldiers at tho front vote for the government or the opposition without candidates being mentioned on the ballots is like finding a match in the dark. It doesn't look quite sensible. Lethbridge will regret to hear of the death of Jos. P. Tracy. While lt Is true that his work in Lethbridge did not produce great results, no one could deny that he was a worker and that he was enthusiastic in his work. Had results been possible he would have got them.

Interest in the Canadian political �ituatlon centres around the possibilities of a reconstructed cabinet which may or may not be union in its character. The statement made by Pre-, mier Borden in reply to the delegation from the recent win-the-war convention in Toronto would indicate that the premier is not averse to union within the cabinet with that wing of the conscrlptlonists of the Liberal party, taking Into account also the labor men of Canada and the grain growers of the west. With a general election in the offing, there seems to be fairly good grounds for the belief that an union government will yet be formed which will go to the people on the conscription liaue. There does not seem to have been much ground for the Ottawa dispatch to the Winnipeg Telegram last Saturday to the effect that the meet In* ot leaders at Bldeau Hall was for the purpose of making another coalition offer to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, with Bother chance for voluntary enlist-fet 10 one of the conditions of the Winnipeg, Aug. 12. - Two Winni- | peg street cars collided on Saturday j evening on Main street.
