Vour King and Country right nowJ need you THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The British announfced a gain of ieonsiderable, importance on, the western front yesterday^ in the capture o� Grandcburt, on tie road to Bapaume. In fact, this ;gain^ �which is'in the sector where the CanadiaVs have been fighting since the beginning of the Somme offensive, is counted as the most important advance for some weeks. Another capture announced today is that cJ the village of SalUey-] Saillisel, which lies' more than half "way up on the road from Peronne to Bapaume, and gives thfe British a.further advantage In the drive towards Bapaume. ~ The allied front leading ji-om the south-east describes now almost a straight line from Peronne towards Bapaume, but be;ids away �westward to Grandecourt, north of Sailley-Salllisell. This bend is now �being straightened by the gains being made by the Britisli and Canadians. . ' The threatened hostilities between tfnited States and Germany, it is felt In Washington, can now only be a matter of hours away. Many large Jiners bearing "TInited States citizens are in mid-ocean or close to the dan--ger zone, and the overt act for which Washington is tensely waiting, with the anxious hope that it may not come, may occur at any moment. Yet, ly iac^tomethihg is to be si^id in favor ot the. proposed reglstratloh of engagements. They are or ought to be^, more than mere pourparlers, more 'than Informal negotiations pre-liminnry to (he marriage treaty. They are contracts in effect, and to require them to be recorded will emphasize their jWjntractual nature. Certainly thBf^ilWw,^-of, qontl-acts is the most sacred ot American laws. No doubt young people will rebel at the necessity of putting their love affairs in the hands of the state. But what rarsoual relations now escane regulation? It will still be possible to keep the njomentous event secret by relinquishing the right to sue, and it Is conceivable the courts will take cognizance of unregistered engagements as they do of common law marriages. At the same time it Is a dfr cided advance in legislative regulation to incorporate courtship In the statute books. TORY JOURNALS WELCOME TO THE JOB .Conservative journals are ha.ving the time of their lives trying to figure out how to explain away Hon. 't. W. brothers' "settlement" of the coal , strike.  They are welcome to the task I for it is a far from pleasant one. After ' dallying along for nearly two months in the dead of winter, first threatening the operators that the government would take.over the mines and manage them, and then telling the union officials to'so home and it would be se^n that an: increase was graiite^, Hbn. Mr. Orotihers comes west to'CaJ gary, lakes off his coat and promises to dig up from somewhere the tsum of $150,000 to pay the men what they -want- and -^keep the operators happy hecauae;^thfiy .don't have to do the The Chero*eo Indian nation has rolunteerodif^ services to the u, S, lirth'e~cviBnf ol'war.  � / A committee has beetti formed to' organize thu niobllliKttod of Italian woinen tor war work,' (ollowinK the esaniple set in France.

Mr. Crothers had settled the ccal strike on some sort of reasonable plan, a dispatch was sent out from Calijary as follows: Calgary. Feb. 4.-The Minister of l.,af}or|. jHon, ,T.
