Little by little Belgium is being recovered from the invader, and portions of northern France have been, likewise, clears! of, his pestilent presence. It is a losing fight that the enemy Is Paging, both in the western and eastern areas. From the latter his efforts to outflank the Russian right has been so far frustrated. The ad- vancing column which had toeaten the Russian forces some little time back at Soldau, and has been endeavoring to push through at Jliawa further east, in the hopes of detaching the Russians operating along the frontier East Prussia has met viih defeat. Forced to occupy his former posi- tion, and failing to accomplish his object In outflanking the Russian right, and pushing through towards "Warsaw from the north, a new com- plexion placed on the enemy's cen- tre advance towards that city. If strategy is similar to that of the Servians Hiay look to a repetition of what has befallen the enemy's Austrian ally. Little Servia has drawn her big neighbor on, even to the occupation of her capital. Get- ting him sufficiently into the toils the Servians have turned and rent him in a fierce 'battle, recovering their city and inflicting substantial defeat. THE LAURIER POLICY PROVED RIGHT The old adage that experience makes us wise has amply justified its irath in the present war. The contro- versy, for instance, as to the sub- marine versus the dreadnought, has proved the efficacy of the former in naval warfare, and Sir Percy Scott, the exponent the 'submarine policy, has had his foresight acknowledged by being an sition in the British Admiralty. The feat of the Sydney in destroying the Eniden, and the help the Australian fleet is rendering the parent fleet has justified the policy of local navies. Without any intention of- reviving 'ao old controversy at the present moment we, nevertheless, consider that at a time when we may be said to be learning our lessons it is only opportune that we should dwell on are assimilating, so that we may profit by the experience. :The present crisis has shown us the highly happy position we should ibe now occupying were we in posses .slon of o? our own. The les- sdn of the war should us towards bringing iflto being a Canadian navy according to the programme first out- lined by the 'Liberal government and agreed to by both parties. For that lesson is that individual co-operation with initiative has proved more effect- ire than concentration of fleets. In other words a fleet of our own to de- fend our shores, and the adjacent would (been found far more helpful to the Empire and to ourselves than three dreadnoughts concentrated in the North Sea. It id useless to argue that ne can not do what Australia .has. accom- plished'With her cruisers, and if any- thing is wanting to disprove tlitf Idea that we cannot raiae men of the breed we have only to poiat-tp the naval hero ot the .hour.
