Dates of pear THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Germany and her allies have for the first time officially proposed' peace t the 'entente. Through the ambassa dors of United States, Spain an Switzerland, the chancellor of th German empire has transmitted a note bearing terms of peace .to .the aliie; and these terms made known shortly. They are believed to includ the evacuation of Belgium and France the settlement of the Balkan trouble by conference, and independency o .Poland arid Lithuania. The- offer i made on the boastful assumption tha Germany and her allies have prove' themselves victors in the war and ar now prepared to make peace. Th British government is expected t reply to-the offer with a refusal. The Greek situation apparently i no nearer a solution. The Greek king is even reported to have ordered a mobilization of his troops for war with the allies, and 'will endeavor to gain time until the Germans are able to come to his assistance. Failure of Teutonic attacks in Ru- mania is reported. The Teutons gained a slight advantage itt an offensive on the Russian front, which-was quickly lost again.

These are certainly days of startling events, following closely one: after the other. That peace will soon is not to be expected, unless Germany should yield to all the allies', demands, which is not likely. Ger- many, after its victory in Rumania, thinks that the present moment (From the Detroit News.)

The allies want more than treal. the first in .Montreal, and proS- pea're; they demand the dethrone- ment of autocracy and military ag- grandizement in the Teutonic nations.- Dntil these results are assured it. is useless to propose a peace that may mesn only a farther preparation for war. We must have a real peace, a lasting peace, and there is no assur- ance of such a peace yet In remarking upon startling events we might intimate that there is a pos- sibility of a change in the military ada, but the New York Times, a very eliable newspaper with highly regard THE PASSING'OF FATHER LACOMBE Rev. Father Lacombe, priest, pio- neer and pathfinder, was one of the very few surviving missionaries of the early, days of Western Canada. He esBSfi-to-the vvest when the Indian was monarch rof Tail surveyed "the buffalo grazed on the plains where today the white man raises bountiful crops and hurries about in his auto- mobile. Father Lacombe. knew the .west from the very beginning of set- tlement by the white man, too, and it was the civilizing influence cf men of his. type that enabled Western Ca- nada to be a habitable- place for the early white settlers. Father Lacombe had a great-influence over the In- dians; it was he who did much to prevent the Blackfeet participating in the rebellion of 1885. It was well for those who come after that Father La- combe's experiences in Western Ca- nada have been preserved. A few 'years ago the story of his life, which Js a tale of pathflnding and pioneer- Ing in the west, was written. It is a pity that more of the records of the pioneers have not been collected for the-Jnformation of the Canadians the coming days.- Just here we think It regrettable that the early recollec tions of Howell Harris of Southern Alberta have not been collected.
