Your Kino and Country Need You Right Nowl THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Little success has apparently attemloil tlie efforts ot Premier Keren-j siiv of Russia, to unite the forces at j officers, he declared, were often forwarded through Russian Unea, by way of a traitorous underground. They blew up munitions factories, burned crops, destroyed depots of stores, Injured railway freights, rolling stock and permanent improvements. They tampered -with military and naval orders, confused shipping orders, spread terrorizing Bud false information among the people, and kept Gorman hoadquarteru supplied with a vast mass of minute detail which the German mind knows ao well how to use. They transmitted, reports regularly informing the Germans of troop movements, of supply movements and the nature of supplies, and of projected major and minor operations. The German army, Mr,. Kotlr declares, knew more about the Russian army, thanks to Its efficient spy system, than the Russians themselves know. In view of this information which may be taken as fairly reliable, it is small wonder that Kercnsky and Korniloff are facing a task today such as few lenders have ever been called upon to handle. Only a complete reorganization of the Russian army, freed from all German Influences, will enable Russia to. become a'first power in this war again. If Kercnsky and Korniloff can bring order out of ehao? the world will owe them much. the front. Two Russian regiments j ,f ,ney fai, t:,en nussia is done as a pave evidoniT of this when in the fight- j factor j, this war. and it may bo that ing of the past few days they left their trenches and deliberately retreated in the face of tie enemy advance Demoralization, therefore, still exists within the Russian army, and it Is difficult to see just what the outcome wilIvT>e. It is impossible, however, that the Teutons can take any great advantage of this at the present. "The rigor ot winter, approaching, will prevent the planning of any great offensive by the Germans, and any gains they are able to make will bo confined to local advances. Rains have again interfered with operations on the western front, which are being confined now to artillery duels. The Italian advance continues with great success. Japan will still be seen holding the eastern front. C, OP L. WHERE THE H HITS HARDEST. The demand for the "conscription "of wealth" in Canada has resulted in the imposition of an income tax. Those who believe that wage-earners ' and salaried men who do not come under the purview uf the Income Tax :Act. however, are mistaken. These are the people who are paying everyday. An exchange In a recent editorial article points out that in August Dip price of milk was again -advanced �'in'Ne\V:'York to IS cents a quart for  the best, lS1,^ cents for the second grade and 12',-j cents for mere milk. The biggest distributing company says its profit is no greater after the advance than it was some time before, amounting to half a cent a quart. The dairy farmers get an advance of a cent a quart and say they can niaVe no more money at that than on the old price some time ago. Substantially this is occurring all over the country, and every recipient of an advanced price says it only covers increased expenses. But an immense number of persons who pay the increased price are unable to hand it on to a next in line. ! Salaries do not increase in proportion ' to the Tise in commodity prices; nor, ' in many cases, do wages. Clerks, teachers, the rank and file of professional men whose remuneration is fix-] i ed by custom at so much an hour or �o much a -visit, governmental em-, ployees.as a rule, and other classes, ; find it harder to meet the weekly bills. '; For them, higher prices are a war ; tux, which they cannot pass on hut r'must shoulder. And credit inflation, ; By further enhancing prices, simply ; Increases their tax | There are millions for whom this j �ort of War tax Ib a heavier burden than for any impost the authorities .now seem likely to lay will, be for j;those upon whom the impost falls. Every rational tax ought to be accepted cheerfully. ;-A BIG REASON FOR ''RUSSIA'S FAILURE. Yesterday's dispatches told us the /Russians were suffering greatly on the field of battle owing-to the disloyalty of their troops. General Korniloff, at trie Moscow conference the other day, told the Russian people what was going on in the trenches in the way of "disorganization of the army. Russia, he said, had lost all the fruits of the first two years of war since the disintegration of the army commenced |uBt spring, all of Galtcia, Bukowina, arid a nmall part of Russia itself having passed out of Russian hands. Something of the reason for this deba.Qlo in the Russian army is given |n-..a. recent issue of the Saturday fevenlng Post in an article by A. Curtis Roth, former United States vice-consul at I'lauen, Saxony, In which he tells of the German spy system whi^h,honeycombs, thp. Russian armies. He says the Germans have employed a minimum of troops against Russia since the spring ot 1916. The line, tirlth great gaps occurring in it, was held by few and older troops, supported by small reserves, and all because Germany had a "host ot WHY ALL THIS CHILLY SILENCET Perhaps the most important feature of the Winnipeg convention of western Liberals is the number of misunderstandings it has provoked and the corresponding number of post mortem*- designed to let a few rays of light on ' the peculiar proceedings in -which the convention indulged. The Winnipeg Free Press has been doing its share of explaining over the convention. On Wednesday it explained something of particular interest to the people of this constituency. It said: A correspondent, who was a delegate from Alberta, to the recent Liberal-convention charges the "Pree; Press with undue severity in its strictures upon the Alberta contingent. He says that the Alberta delegates, with the exception of a small minority from the northern constituencies were conserip-tionists, who were ardently in favor ^PICKED UP IN �* PASSING *�R TB busy MAN M�r.
