TlvU would be perfectly/accSi>t*ble to CinafllRn grnwors, but on the basis of the prices Tor Auatrallan" wol In Canada; the pro-Vailing U.S. 'price would be many cents per pound higher. Our information on this subject may be WTOnf. Wo hope it is for It is \-^ry Important, that at this time when every pound of wool and mutton that can be produced Is neciled, nothing bo lione which would tend to cripple the industry. We hope a suitable explanation may bo forthcoming at nn early date. THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR With the capture of Roye and' Chaulnes by the Trench, and the capture ot Bapaume by the British and their advance down the Arras-Cambral road bej-ond Bapaume, the whole front of the German lines from SofBsons to Cambral is monaced. This means that the Germans may shortly ^e forced to retreat even beyond the famous Hindenburg line which they fell back to atter the advance of the British-^ in. iai6 and 1917. The British troops lare advancing rapidly up the Cambral nkii, and the French have by the capture of ca>.anlrSe�. today effected a serious menac'e to.Peronae andto Nesle.

' 'We.heard In'Mooea Jaw .that Southern Alberta was just one brown, dried-np strip' of Jpralrle." This Is the genettirdpiniOn bald in the east and in other parte ot the prairie regaTd-ing conditions in Soathem Alberta. It Is qiilto true that! Southern Alberta is not a garden spot this year, but nevefthelesa crop out-turns will be very considerable. It would be a good Idea it the board ot trade would have "an authentic statement . prepared 'and circulated to combat the prevailing impression. CARDSTON LINE SERVICE UNFAIR.

WHAT'S BEHIND JAPAN'S RICE RIOTS? The ridings In Japan have a more deep-seated cause than the price of rice, believes the Toronto Globe. The country is being transfonned as was England during the industrial revolution, before the working classes had effectively organized or before the ruling classes had yielded to tlie demand for the protection ot labor against ruthless exploitation. The masses in Japan have not yet their proportionate share of political power add the aristocracy has not evolved a Lord Shaftesbury to plead tor the over-driven toilers. Let Uiose who reproach Japan remember thai England ^vas far advanced industrially before the State had the humanity to attempt to shield even little children from the living death to which countless thousands were doomed by' long hours of toil in "crowded and insanitary workshops. Only the dreadful liavoc of epidemic disease impelled parliament to pass the first factory law, early in the nineteenth century. That was only the beginning. For many years afterwards boys and girls who had not even reached their 'teens were forced to work for fourteen and fifteen hours a day, and women, harnessed like beasts to coal trucks crawled through the darkness and damp of the mines. The reforms embodied in the great aeries of Factory Acts were won only gradually, in the teeth ot the opposition of many employei-s, while for flie greater pari ot the last century trades unions were illegal com-binatlona. The rapid development of Japan's industrial life has brought glaring abuses resembling those which followed the rise of the factory system in Great Britain. Her workers, men, women and children, loll long hours for small pay. With the growth /)f factories and factory cities has come a proletariat, and witli the proletariat a spirit ot unrest, bom of real grievances.'The sudden access ot prosperity during the war, with its spawn of jnllliorialres and new fortunes, and the rislpg cost of, living, have aggravated the discontent of the tollers, who hayeimhlbed the ideas ot their class in Western honndartes. This I'eeling is bounJ to have a sharp political reaction, and it is not surprising 'to hear that the tide of democracy, is rising. Food riots are merely a symptom of a disease which the rulers of Japan, ;BO.�lilighteiied and s'o progressive in many-directions, must seek to remedy if only; in'self-defence. The new Industrialism, must -be tempered by social and 'humanitarian legislation, and IheS jiisi .'^d'emands of the worlcers must be recognized by eapital. A rise in the level ot wages Is inevitable. The Japanese people are too intelligent to remain tar helow other nations in the standard ot living. .Japan will some day come abreast of her industrial rivals in this as In'pthe'r respects. They will'then no longer be frightened by'the hogey ot cheap, labor" competition trom the Orient. WHAT'S THE EXP�NAT10N :OF WOOL SITUATION? > Some one in Ottawa should explain .'the situation which has been created ^'In this country by the Importation ot '30,000,000 pounds of Australian wool. tThe tnuiBaction may be perfectly pro--per and .the ' Interests o't Canadian '^abeep. growers may be safeguarded, ;;but from the information available it f would appear thctt the Australian wool Ale Availahle to Ganodiaa manufacturers at a price consldenibly lower than price fMitcb^ has been lialdln Can^ mdtk for Oianadian twool dating the VfMt year.
