THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. Soviet troops are evacuatinc Moscow, where the Bolshevikl government has had its capital .since mov-tag 'from Potrograil. The situation at Moscow is deemed too risky for the Bolshoviki outfit, and they are moving on. In the meantime allied forces are slowly moving to the aia of the Czechs in Siberia. The Times correspondent points out that the Czechs In western Siberia are in danger of being cut off II allied aid does not reach them soon, and he urges all possible haste in sending forces and equipment to their assistance. On the western front there is little change lii the situation. The town of Lassigny has been captured ^by the French, who are moving down the other side of the Lassigny ridge now. to the conclusion that hpcnii.sp ihoro has only been a partial crop this yiwr. n. hnlt-servico is nil that is roiiuliod until such time as the fnrniprs harvest another good crop. Tlint. iiw'l the right way to look .it It If rlio (.M\ H. Is going 10 grasp tho oxcuso of a partial crop failure to cut down ncod-od .sorvlcps. then they expect iho tanners, who aro dopondent ow the srrvico. to put forth their best efforts. Tho C.P.U. sliouUl set a pood cx.imple to the nicn who aro making tho district prod not ivo. The VVM. can afford to continue tho present servioo hotter than many of the farmers can .iffonl to spend thousands of dollars putting In a crop next year. Many of those same faniers against their better judgment seeded' largo acreages this year. It would have been criminal had tlicy not done so; It was their duty to take tho chance. Now because a poor season comes along and tlioy lose heavily thoy are couipiaining, but it surely isn't right for the C.I'.H. to penalize the people because Providence failed to send the rain in time. A little co-operation all around is needed and the C.P.K, cannot afford to overlook the one bcft 'bet. '^PICKED UP IN-* PA SS/JVG Tg ^^^^ The ban on bacon is off. Not so tho prices.

Says the Brantford Expositor: It is said that Hon. Dr. Beland, who w^as Postmaster-General in tho Laurler Cabinet, will be taken into the Union Government as one of the Quebec representatives. His acceptance of the" portfolio would undoubt-e'dly be very popular, while it would help the government's position by nearly equalizing the representation by party and giving Quebec more adequate representation. Moreover, thi doctor's influence among his fellow-countrymen, by reason of his sacrifices and sufferings, ought to bo very great. 1,SOO.O(10 bond.s were issued In tho last Victory Ixjan.

Rowell, president of tho privy council. Colonel Patterson, coiumanilor ot the Cunadlan Cavalry brigade, whoso exploits are described in yesterday's cables, has sent tho following reply: "All ranks greatly appreciate your kind mcHsago. It was a great prlvllegfl to light with a Cunadlan corps." Mr. Uowell was with tho Canadian Cavalry Urigado on July 4 when thoy constituted the reserves for the Australian iind American forces which captured Ilamol. Colonel Patterson's mossago Is of particular Intorost bocauso it serves as a reminder that Canadian Cavalry is for tho (Irst time fighting with the Canadian forces. Hitherto tho mount cd fighting men from Canada have boon attached to tho Imperial array and tho record ot their achlevomonta con.stitutos one of tho brightest pages ot the war. The most conspicuous c.v ploits ot tho Canadian Cavalry Bri. gadc previous to tho present fighting occurred during the battle ot Cam bral and tho fight in tlie defence ol Ilhelms Amiens. KEEPING THE EYE ON THE MAIN GOAL. The declaration ol Edwin F. Tretz ot the U.S. food admlnlstratlorn here that the U.S. Is ready to put 15,000,-000 men in the field to make the world again "a decent place to live in" should inspire every Canadian to put forth every effort towards the winning of the war until that object is accomplished. With the aid of the U.S. manpower there Is no doubt of the outcome of the war now. Even the Germans are beginning to admit that their hope is small. The main object now Is to put forth concentrated effort and thus shorten the period of strife. Keeping all eyes on the main goal lis now more Important than ever, therefore, wa should allow nothing to Interfere. From time to time domestic questions arise which being closer to home, we are apt to mistake for the main question for the moment. But as Mr. Trefz says, these diversions are just the way the Ivaiaer wishes to occupy our minds instead of the war. Canada's tariff policy alter the war. Imperial preference, Hindu Immigiatlon, these may all Boem Important to us. But they are of very slight importance as compared to winning the war In tho shortest possible time. Keep the goal In mind and in that way It will the quicker be reached. UTILIZING THE COPPER SCRA Ottawa, Aug. 14.-^No more striking example of the Importance ot conservation could be given than that contained In the report of the Imperial Munitions Board. In making the turnings of the copper driving bands of shells produced in Canada for the British ministry of munitions, a large quantity ot copper scrap is accumulated. This is refined and made into ingots. It is estimated that 20,000 pounds ot copper have thus been reclaimed, representing a value of approximately $5,000,000. Steel scrap is also being continuously recorded In large quantities, tho present annual value of which is approximately $6,-000,000. British Forglngs, Limited, a sub-sldary of the board, operates one plant which is the largest electric steel plant In the world, where the steel scrap accumulation collected from scraps, of munitions. Is converted by the electrical process Into ingots and forglngs. Operations commenced in July, 1917, and the present monthly capacity ot the plant is about 5,000 tons of shell steel. C.P.R. SHOULD SET GOOD EXAMPLE. If, because of a poor crop this year, the farmers ot Southern Alberta were to decide that they would employ balf the number of men, half the ma-[;blaery and put but half the money li^to the planting of crops until another good crop was harvested,//.�y Wouldn't be considered very patriotic. Instead of that, they are going to Bmploy more men, more machinery ind spend more monoy to sow a hir-|er acreKKB next year than ever bo- 33 POUCEIN LET OUT Winnipeg, Aug. 14,-Thirty-throe members of the police department who were the last to be taken on tho lOrco will be let out within the next three months by an order ot the police com nilSBion which went Into effect today.
