Your King and Country Need Yeu Right Nowl THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Fighting of the past few days on the western front has been around the Jcenes at St. Jiillen immortalized by the Canadians, and has been of the tnost intense nature. The British lines continue to advance in this section. The majority of opera liens has been  Hindered by heavy rains. President "Wilson has answered in most emphatic terms the pence note lent by the Pope. The keynote of his reply is that peace can bo made only with the (lerman people, and not with '.he militarists who now rule that unhappy country. commendable patriotism in risking big !o3*ei to preserve wool for Canadian industries, and the noxt move deems to be on the part of tho textile Interests. THE MUSKETRY INSTRUCTRESS "HEADS, I WIN; TAILS, YOU LOSE." As a sample of the German method Df reasoning the New York Evening Post thus comments upon the kaiser's message to President Wilson bearing date August 10, 1914, which has been made public by Mr. Gerard: "In ;law it has always been denied a defendant to plead both an alibi �nd a confession and avoidance, as is now done with the. kai3er's message to the president. You couldn't both plead that you were attending a cakewalk the night Jones's coop was robbed, and at the same time aver that the coop had already been' emptied by tho time you got to It. The kaiser's note is an impudent forgery; and, even it it isn't, it contains no fres-h proof of Germany's guilt. The French yiolated Belgian neutrality first; but If they didn't we had to violate It as a matter of military necessity. There were no German atrocities in Belgium because German soldiers have it not in them to be atrocious; but if there were any, then the Belgians provoked them. The Lusltania was loaded to the gunnels with explosives, which caused her to sink almost of herself, besides she was a British cruiser; but, even if she wasn't Germany had a right to sink her with her freight of American women and children to get even with England. When eight hundred thousand Armenians were being cruelly slaughtered, the German diplomatic and consular officials in Turkey didn't know what was happening, or,' if they did, they couldn't Jeopardize the Turkish alliance by Interfering. German moral lawyers .hare this curious intellectual kink; they don't understand that, the jury of world opinion is just like any other; inconsistent pleadings Induce verdicts of 'Guilty.'" CANADIAN WOOL FOR CANADIAN MANUFACTURERS. The shipment to Torontp of 645,000 pounds of �'.his year's wool clip by sheep men p' this district has done a great deal to stimulate the industry In Canada and the effect is likely to be far reaching. In a recent editorial on "The Canadian "Wool Industry" the Toronto Globe says of the effort to have Canadian textile manufacturers buy Canadian grown wool: An effort Is being made by the authorities interested In the Canadian heep industry to preserve Canadian wool for Canadian factories, but there are. many difficulties in the way of bringing producers and users together. The war has done much to impress upon the public mind the need of less dependence upon imported commodities when home industries can be made to flourish without too much as-�iHtance. This has centred public attention on sheep raising in Canada as a means of eliminating the shortage of wool, and now an effort i� being Dade by the live stock branch at Ottawa to encourage Canadian buyers to buy Canadian wool, considerable quantities of which are in store at a warehouse on SImcoe street. For some months past the Canadian wool commission has been working to equitably apportion comparatively small supplies of Australasian wool among the industries, but this is only a war measure, and at best ia only ciinlmizing a bad situation, although some very good results have accrued from the efforts of this body of textile men. But in the encouragement of the sheep raiBlng industry in the weBt and north lies the hope of more or last economic independence in the Wool trade, and the statement of Mr. T. R. Arkell, on the Industrial Pages elsewhere in this Issue, points out that the "Western sheepmen are prepared to make some sacrifices to bring about the desirei closer co-operation between producers and users. It there were adequate combing facilities in tali, country so that the fleece could he properly treated for the knitters, etc,, there would be very little dlt-IcuJty in the way of selling Canadian wool tn Canada-, but many buyers ( prefer sendlnt overseas for �oel for Canadian factories', Never- UNION GOVERNMENT RESTS WITH CONSERVATIVES. Western liberals have told Sir Robert Borden that they are willing to enter a union government In support of a wln-the-war policy, including conscription of course. They stipulate, however, that Sir Robert give way as leader to one of four whom they have named, the premier to remain as a member of the cabinet, i There is nothing unfair in tho offer of tho western wing of tho Liberal party. Sir Robert Borden announced several weeks hko that he would be quite ready to step down from his high office were it considered that a new loader could be found under whom Canadians could present a more united front nnd put forth greater effort to win the war. Sir Robert Borden Is to be honored for the position he has taken. Ho has acted 'the part of a statesman. It is not to be wondered at, however, that those to whom union government proposals have- been made should seek to avail themselves of the opportunity to secure a new-leader. It is pretty generally accepted that, while Borden has done his | best, he is not strong as a leader. In tho first place he chose unwisely when he succumbed to the Quebec Nationalists when forming his cabinet in 1911. And since then it is seldom that he has had a smooth working organization. The Sam Hughes episode shows that there was a lack of a. strong guiding hand during tho early days of the war. Even Rogers charges the premier with lack of decision, though to tell the truth condemnation by Bob Rogers should be the highest commendation. There can be no gainsaying the fact, however, that Premier Borden has been inclined to allow the situation to drift quite too often, and if Canada is to enforce compulsory service and carry on the war with the utmost vigor there must be a strong guiding hand. Again, Sir Robert Borden has led the Conservative party through some of the most partizan fights in the history of Canada. Though he may now have lost all his partizan feeling, and we have no doubt he is actuated by higher motives at present, nevertheless, his name connected with the government as leader of union forces would leave suspicion in the minds of too many people. We want no suspicion about a union government. What we want above everything else is confidence. Such being the case, the union government Issue hinges on the approval of the Conservative party to Sir Robert Borden's stepping out and agreement on a new leader. Many Conservatives are averse to Premier Borden's laying down the reins o* leader-! ship, but he is willing; why should the party not be. The Liberal advocates of union are not demanding that a Liberal be chosen as leader. They have named four men as possibilities. The only one whose name is known to us at the time of writing Is Sir George Foster, a lifelong. Conservative. Though we have no inside information we are of. the opinion that Sir Adam Beck or Mr. Justice Duff may be two of the other three. Either of them would inspire more confidence than Sir George Foster, to whom much the same objection might be taken as in the case of Mr. Borden himself. However, the Liberals have accepted Sir Robert Borden's invitation for the formation of a union government practically on his own terms. It appears now as if the answer rested with the Conservatives.
