It U now q>ilt� clear according to dlapatches from the front, that the Oennans Intend to evacuate the Ro^e-N> salient entirely. In this case they -wfll be compelled to retire to the line held by them prerlous to their groat drlTe ot this spring. Both the French and British troops are con-tlnulns their pressure in this region and the 0�rmans are findinc their po-(ttlosa untenable. definite that tho war will hayo its final ending. Having admitted that he is on tho dofoneivn. tho enemy sllenllr fif'inils that ho lina no further hope or victory. His one hope notv it by dp'ensive fight he can m^kc It so cx-P'lslve that (he Allies w!li be willing ) call It a draw and make terms on tnat basis. But It Is Pvldcnt that the Allies are not going to bo contented with a draw, that nofhlrig less than a definite victory will bo accepted. And to this end, tho Allied countries nro combing their manpower for more men. while the United State? Is spocdlng up its program to put 000.000 men In the field by next July, with tho object of putting -1,000,000 mon In tho battio zono as rapidly a.s possltile in order to force quick decision. AVith the German manpower on the wane, the f.istor tbo Allies can put an ovorwholming force on tho west front the sooner a definite decision will be reached. The past month's events have paved (he way for the end of the war. It may take a long time yet, but there is no doubt now of the resnlt even though tho Ger mass may be determined to exact a fearful price. THE POSITION OF THE NEWSPAPERS. "Editor and Publisher" makes the followla* statement of interest to the newspaper reading public: One fact stands out in hold relief Newspaper r�Tennes, under present conditions, must be increased, not diminished. There are but two sources of newspaper revenue-circulation and advertising. It is the policy of most publishers to provide for the cost of white paper through circulation receipts. Some ot them fall to accomplish this-others do a little better, The trend is toward higher prices for papers, hut this la always a slow development' ' � ; It is inevitable that adrertlslng shall produce the. bnlk ot the larger revenues required for meeting thie advancing coats ot newspaper publishing. Evan If the volume of ^vertls-ing shonid be increased the rates would, still have to .bo advanced. If the TOlume .should be arbitrarily restricted, tien-the rates woiild have to undergo drastic 'reTlsion-upward. Most tisera ot newspairers space reallre-*nd some reluctantly concede -that the average rates now prevailing are too Itfw; that publlahers are selling .their ,. chief commodity too cheaply. It is fortunately true that advertisers can make advertising pay, and pay handsomely, at a higher rate of cost to them for space. This is the savins 'act of the whole situation. It is the fact which must determine the new policies of the men who make our riewspapers. C.P.R.'^ SHOULD DEAL ^PICKED UP IN'* PASSING ^ ��r iS� The Hamilton policemen will form a union. Lieut. W. H.
