Buchanan John TorranM Managing Director BoatatM MaiMW ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The Allied nations have reason to be greatly cheered by yesterday's news from the Dardanelles. Tbe ttatement that two cruisers -were able to penetrate the straits, even though their newly gained positions may. be only temporarily held at present, is an indication that the campaign is progressing much more favorably than :was thought to be the case. Some very heavy and very successful land fighting Is being carried on toy the Allied troops. It is stated, also, that the situation of the Turks is dally ijecomiog more precarious. On the Russian front, tbe German offensive appears to have halted for the time being. Just what new plans are maturing in the minds of Von Maekensen and Von Hindenberg, it is nard to say. In the meantime the progress of the Teutons in ttie Bal- tic provinces has been brought to a stop, and Hie, offensive farther south has slackened off. The tensity of the situation be- tween Germany and United States ever the sinking of the Arable is somewhat relieved by the continued apologetic attitude of Germany and her expressed desire to maintain friendly relations. The Turks will soon foe pleading for mercj- now that fehey have to dodge air in Constantinople. Anybody in need of exercise can find relief by taking on a harvester's job for the next few weeks. reaches a glorious conclusion for the Allies. We would all be much happier if the of the Dardanelles did not mean a fall in the price of wheat. It looks as though the time to cheer over victory at the Dardanelles is near at hand. Until we have an official report it is not wire to get boisterous. Hon. Archie McLean has abandon- ed, the present. He is "riding the binder on his Pincher Creek-farm and until the grain is in stook: public life will have no attract- iveness .for him. The report of the commission of judges on the 'Manitoba. scandal is very much as expected. It tea unani- mous which is all the bet- ter. It is clear that it is the duly of the new government to prosecute some men hvho have, held a very high place in Manitoba affairs. That the government will fulfil this duty is to expected no matter how distaste- ful it may .he. Too .long have men higher up 'been absolved from punish- ment and the people expect justice to be meted out no matter what reputa- tions may be destroyed. Manitoba must he made to serve as an object lesson to public men throughout Can- ada. Some Tories try to shake off the re- sponsibility for the Manitoba mess iby remarking that nothing better could be expected from -Roblin be- cause he was once a Liberal. They should get rid of Premier Borden and Finance -Minister Wibite, both of whom are former Liberals. The Liberals might be quite willing to extend the life of parliament un- til the end.of the war, but to extend it for two years after the war is not, likely, to be acceptable. An election during the war is not desirable but there is no reason why there should not be an appeal to the people im- mediately following the war. OUR POINT OF VIEW YOUR KING AND COUNTRY MEED YOU RIGHT NOW. Idea! harvest weather, isn't It? The Bun is shining and consequent- )C the grain Is falling fast. All this talk of a coalition govern- ment at Ottawa is so much nonsense. A coalition at the beginning of the war might have been acceptable, but since the war has progressed there is no warrant for a policy Chat would mean that .the Liberal, party would have to bear' responsibility for all the mistakes of tUe government. The government will have to ,bear all its jins in connection with .war contracts and the Liberal party would be very foolish to join hands with the gov- ernment at this stage. Insofar as the government's war policy is concern- ed, it will have the support of every Liberal '.member of the House of Commpns. Canada is unitejl and all parties want to see this country keep its' best ioot forward the war "Whether "the wish is father to thought" that Holland may enter the war on the Bide of the or whether the story recently published is founded on fact, will only be proved by events as they develop in coming months. The story, however, was worth while, for it is quite certain that if Holland does join the Allies the German occupation of Belgium and possibly of that part of Germany west of the Rhine will be most seri- ously disputed. British and Dutch troops, acting in concert, with Essen and Cologne as their objectives, would seriously threaten lines of communication into Belgium. With the assistance of the French driving in a north-westerly, direction from the valley of the Meuse, Ger- many would have to" withdraw from Belgium and Northern France entire- ly, or place herself in a similar posi- tion to that of the Grand Djke Iflcho- las when he withdrew his armies from Poland. Nearly all the German militarv writers have admitted in their 'books, points out the Saskatoon Phoenix, that an attack through Hol- land into the industrial heart of Ger- many would 'be the most serious catastrophe that the nation could _he called upon to face. If it were en- tirely successful the Kaiser's legions must either throw down their arms and surrender or retire to the east- era hank of the Rhine a defensive war with part ot their ter- ritory occupied- by an enemy (and that the most valuable part) for if they try to hold Dcignim they will be faced with Australia still has hopes that Can- ada will carry out the Laurier navai policy and a .navy that will co-opera-te with the' Australian fleet. It will ibe remembered' that at the last Imperial Conference, Australia was a party to such ari arrangement, and has loyally carried out her agree- ment. New Zealand has since shown approval of this scheme, tout Canada has neither repealed the Laurier Na- val Act nor put into effect --.the pur- pose of that Act. Mr. Fisher, the Australian premier, after a .recent visit to New Zealand, The vision of the Australian gov- ernment is not limited to New Zea- land. We hope to co-operate also with Canada and with .South': Africa in matters of mutual interest. There is a growing feeling in New Zealand that the basic principle ot His Ma- jesty's Australian fleet' is a sound one; the people there feel that It is their duty to provide for the defence of their.country ships and BICKED UP IN SSING.CZZI FOR THB BUSY MAN Vancouver Island will campaign for fall and winter tourist traffic.
