THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR President Wilson's peace" note ceived Tilth titter words by the Bri tish who -acorn advances of the ruler who, in the face of {he direct outrages of the Germans, had to Bay in the Dame of humanity. The note will not be. responded to at pres ent by the allied powers; until full communication has h'aeir heJfl them upon the subject. Success for the allied forces TariouB fronts Is recorded in yester- day's dispatches The British, in a sudden offensive In Arabia, haye-jle- featcd the-'.Ttirks sad captured -twin' them a town- WhicB Jas teen In thHf ppssessiorj for two years tivity by the British in Mesopotamia Js alEc. reported. The ftuss'ans Announce success In their fighting in tie -wooded regions 6'f the Carpathians in Galicia, againsn the Austrlans. In Dohrudja, in Ruma- nia, a is in progress, with the advantage with the Teutons as yet. Airmen have heen active in France, dropping homba on important German stations and positions. Artillery .bom- bardinents are frequent in .Yarioai sections of the western front. NO REASON TO CHEER UP The liquor interests shouldn't cheer up too much over the legal-talk that the smashing of direct-legislation in Manitoba may knock out Alberta's liquor law, because if direct legislation is wrong m Manitoba it is likely to be in Alberta. Direct legislation whether good or bad trom the legal won't make the least bil of difference, The Alberta govern- -ment knows the opinion of .the people of Alberta, and will keep: the-liquor law on tho statutes no matter how often direct legislation may be at tacked and annihilated. No govern- ment dare restore the liquor business in Alberta and expect the endornation of the -public. Such a government would be wiped out of existence. berta doesn't want the liquor business, and the rendering of the direct legis- lation act' inoperative doesn't a 'particle ot difference. The -liquor" in- terests need not cheer up even for an Instant. If they do the'gloom .will scon o'er spread them again. NOT. A TIME FOR CONFERENCE A conference convince the that Germany is right and that peace at this time would be a blese- Sng to the woild. Then why a con; There should he no confer- ence, and the United States ought to realize It, iffi'Sl Germany Is In the to rijlit tkf wronn it DM per- petrated upon the world and honestly a real regard for Hie aban- donment of militarism. Tho allies aro not In tliiS war, for gloryj thoy aro sacrificing: HveM >voalth for the groat and holy purpose of'overthrow- Ing tartrarlsin and militarism aiid au- tocracy. Until the powers represent; ing these unholy ideals are humbled there cnn bo no peace, except a peace that would only be a truce, and we don't want a peace of that character. We want a real abiding peace. That should bo the allies' answer to the United States. If President Wilson seeks a frank statement of allied opinion, -ho can flnd It in the words a former gai-er- nor of Kansas, now a Canadian and a Liberal candidate for the Alberta legislature. This gentleman, Mr. ,T, W. Leedy, declared at a meeting in Edmonton this week: "I am In favor of conscription for this reason. Germany has put us on a war basis against our will, wish or concern. We did not want to go to war; we were not prepared for war; but for two years we have been striv- ing In every way we can-to get on an equal footing with the Germans. We have not only got to that now, but to better than the Germans and we are jib'lnq ah'ea'd. I am In favor of going ahead and I am pleased to the bottom of my heart with Lloyd-George'i speech, because It reflects my senti- And it reflects the sentiments ol every Canadian who has a proper ap- preciation of what this war is all about.
