Your Kino and Country Need You Right Nowl cheaper farm machinery, a greater development o" marketing facilities, and a hundred other things the west needs but which tho east does not understand. With a "solid western group" the demands of the west will lie heard in parliament In such a way that they will he granted. The principles enumerated are Ltbcral principles developed in the west. There, are a multitude of westerners now-allied with the old Conservative i-arty who favor (lie principles set forth, and whoso support would go to a body standing out for the proper development of the west. The west has no reason to fear that such a body would not stand for the highest ideals of Canndlanism. The record of the west In thl* war precludes any such fear. THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR A terrific battle is raging on the Yprcs fiont, where the Uritish have opened n new offensive with considerable success. At every opportunity the offensive in Belgium is being pushed to the utmost possible advantage. It is the hope of the allies to capture the German naval bases on the Belgian coast this fall, or to so menace them that they will be useless for submarine bases next spring. Simultaneously with tins drive the Canadians are pushing the offensive at Lens, and the French on tho Verdun front. The Canadians have encountered tho most terrific hand-to-hand fighting of the war at Lens, where the Germans are making the most determined resistance. At Verdun the French have found progress easier, and a great deal of ground has. been won back, and many prisoners taken. The Italians arc continuing their drive ou the Isonzo front, in spite of the claim by. Austria that they have been repulsed and prisoners taken. all competitors must bo British-eating bologna and fruit in his lather's store. The Ontario government has bought the majority of the orchards at Wellington and rented fruit storage, whore fruit will be packed and boxed for shipment to tho boys at the front.

The independent action of the South Winnipeg Liberals in repudiating the Winnipeg Liberal convention and the leadership of Laurier, and declaring for compulsory service, a national government and a united western party-is significant. Had the Liberals in their big convention some time ago followed the same courBe the political atmosphere would havo been clear today. Western Canada Is for winning the wa.T because the west has already done so much that any hint of backing up is received with alarm. And that Is why Sir Wilfrid Laurier is not acceptable as a leader. It is feared that his opposition to conscription would result in a slackening of Canada's efforts, and there are (rounds for such a suspicion. Western Canada has had much to thank Sir Wilfrid for ln the past, but this war isn't a matter of sentiment. It must be won at all cost. The declaration of tho South Winnipeg convention paveB the way for similar action elsewhere, and lt would be well were such action to be taken. The majority of western Liberals will agree with the resolutions. It means a break with the old Liberal party, but lt means also the strengthening of the new Liberal party that has been growing in the west. Liberalism In the west has been growing during the past few years because it stands for progress. That Is why four Liberal governments are in power in the four western provinces. Western Liberals are close to the people. They have developed the principle for which the west' stands. In this progress they have drawn away from the eastern wing ot the party which has more conservative ideals. Tho present crisis has served to widen tho inevitable gap. Premier Norris, of Manitoba, spoke in the South Winnipeg convention of a solid western group. Thero are many who hopo that such a group will come out ot the present crisiB as much for what such> a group could do for western development in the future as for what it can accomplish In helping Canada form a wln-tbo-war government now. The west has for years wanted wider markets, leaders or representatives of their party. Negotiations with them have been since conducted, but have not yet been concluded. I regret that my efforts for the formation of a government based upon a union of all eloments prepared to carry on this war to a successful conclusion have not hitherto met with the success which I think they deserved. I am possesesd, however, of considerable patience and persistence, and I have not discontinued my efforts. If Liberals in active public life, to whom naturally one must first resort, are not prepared to play the part which I think they should play in forming such a government, it will be my duty to invite prominent Liberals not in active public life to join with me in consummating the national purpose which I have in mind. Thus I see my duty before me. I cannot agree that this is a time when the fortunes of the country should be entrusted to the determination of one political party. I hold, on the contrary, that at this juncture, when the destiny of our Dominion and tho whole empire hangs in the balance, I should, notwithstanding every discouragement, persistently try to bring about a union of all men of goodwill In both political parties who are animated by the patriotic desire and determination of throwing Canada's full force into the winning of this war. Sir Robert Borden is admittedly weak as a leader, but no Canadian cau deny that the sentiment expressed in the above paragraph is much to be desired over Rogers' silly talk about his "enemies," the Grits. amount of bread that, try as the man-1 agement might, was left over from meals. New gas regulations have been Is-! sued in Berlin which virtually put | the ordinary consumer of gas on half, j rations from now on. The new or-' ders are made necessary because of the inability of the gas works to obtain a supply of coal. Similar meas- \ ures are pending throughout the empire, j Prince Albert, second son of the king, has been obliged to leave bis ship owing to gastric trouble. A consultation of physicians has been held as a result of which it was decided that the prince must submit to a course of treatment. This will prevent him from undertaking any duty afloat for several months. The Ontario government has appointed W. J. Bell, of the department j of agriculture, to be principal of the i Eastern Ontario Agricultural school at j Kemptville, Ont. He was formerly | stock specialist for the Ontario do- < partment of agriculture and later in-1 structor in live stock breeding at the Ontario Veterinary college. The new Winnipeg income tax Imposed by the city council provides that the minimum incomo to be taxed would be $500 for a single man and $1,000 for a married man. Tho rate would run from one per cent, on the I first $1,000 to six per cent, on any j sum of taxable Income more than $12,000. There would bo a tax on corporations of from two to six per cent. INTO LITTLE BITS London, Aug. 22-"Fighting of the fiercest doncription has again been going on around Lous, in which the Canadians have forced their way nearer to the heart of the city." says Perry Robinson, the Dally News correspondent, in a dispatch forwarded last night. He adds: "The Germans have already told tho world that lu former attackB wo used up all our Canadian divisions which had been shattered. Thoy will perhaps now explain how it is that, though they bring up new divisions themselves and throw them recklessly into carnage, they still find the Canadians roady to break them 'into little bits.'" 16 ON STREET CAR KILLED.
