Buchanan John Torranca Managing Director Business Manager ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR Clouds of doubt still obscure the diplomatic situation in the Balkans Houmanla is vacillating and Greec has not by any means made any de finite announcement of her real atti tude towards the Allies. Russian troops wait on the Roumanian horde: for the word to cross into Bulgaria and in the meantime the campaign in Serbia is pretty much at a standstill The Serbians are being pursued across Albanian territory by the Bulgarians but no other features of the campaign lave developed. French cabinet ministers have ef fectually put the quietus upon peace talk at present, by making the defin ite announcement that France could not possibly agree to peace until Alsace and Lorraine had been taken BeTgium and Serbia restored, and Ger man militarism crushed. Editorial 'comment in England points out thai all the peace talk is merely' a Ger man scheme to get free.of the strug gle for further preparation, and that the Allies cannot consent to peace until they are in, a position to dic- tate the terms. Much criticism of the British cam- paign, in Mesopotamia is heard in Eng- land. The forced retreat of the Bri- tish from the vicinity of Bagdad has caused keen disappointment.

THE MORAL CRISIS OF THE WAR The New York Tribune recently published a striking article on "The Mont Crisis of the War." It deals with'-''the talk of .peace and .makes it cannot come with satisfaction to .the civilized world un- til German ambitions of world domina- tion are destroyed forever. It ridi- cules, the 'peace movement in. the Untted States. .-It says that those-be- hind it .are cranks .and individuals with selfish ends: to serve. "As coa- tranted with these it says, "there is ia considerable and well-de- fined group of Americans who recog- nize' that the moral crisis of the great world war has now arrived, and '.that the next few months wUl decide whether the war is to prove one of the greatest landmarks in human his- tory, on 9 of the most beneficial and and subtracted so much from the de- Madrid to Moscow and led 'French' the Germans, exposed to a new storm velopment of the world." armies from the Channel to the few years hence.

"A premature peace would be but an interruption in the progress of a campaign and a crusade, the campaign j and cruaade of Germany against all 1 civilization. It would mean that those who conceived, planned, directed the. present onslaught would have a new; opportunity to gather up their i strength, profit by their errors, ex- tend their preparation. It would mean that the next generation of men would have to go back to the trenches in j which the present have lived and died for so many bittf.T months. It would i postpone, but it would not abolish the peril. "For what the French and British are now fighting is not a nation, lt; IB not a people, it IB an idea. U Is the during- peace." This then is the moral crisis and in this crisis the Tribune argues the gravest responsibility rests with the British people. "The French have done- their part, and what they have done will forever remain, prized by those who love liberty. Much the Bri- tish have done, but tieir sacrifice as compared with the French'js still slight. The great "work which is to be done must be by the nation whose resources are still undiminish- whose numbers- have known no such losses as France has suffered lu her magnificent campaigns. "For many Americans the chief in- terest, .the real' concern, be as to what part the British people will choose to play. .Peace on terms which will mean little or no imme- diate sacrifice for the'British can be had at any time. But such peace as of the faith which is democracy and the goepel which is independence." The British people, and we inter- pret the sentiment of the Empire by that of Canada, are prepared to" pay the price. They know that there, can be no lasting peace .until Germany's ambition ambitions are completely curbed. As the Tribune says in con- cluding its striking article "There can be no peace until this German dream dies. How many months of struggles how many more millions of German youths must die before the lesson is learned, no man can say. But when it 1s learned, then peace will he permanent and civiliza- tion and humanity can resume their tasks. Every American knows that France .will never fail now in. her work, she will not falter or flinch. A generation of Frenchmen have gone forth to die that there may" be ban- ished from the world a foul and evil spirit. EJvery American is now look- ing with 'wonder to see whether the British nation, upon whom the great- er task now devolves, will take up. and.carrj- to its conclusion the work that must be done If there Is to be peace and not a mere truce.1 The Tribune need have 'no fear of peace; all loyal people want tho war to proceed until tho object of Uio Allies Is attained, the destruction of German militarism and everlasting peace for the world.
