The Germans claim to have penerated the French lines to an extent of two miles, and have taken 3000 prisoners and qtiantities of material.  The new offensive was delivered east tt the Please river. Gains are also iplalmed in upper Alsace. Tlie Italian advance carried the Italian troops far towards their goal, the city of Trent, towards which they Piave been striving for weeks and inonths. In Gngland, Lord Derby has been apiiolnted to head the new plans for >ir defence, and Lord Robert CecU i>as been appointed as minister of blockade and war trade. GOVERNMENT'S CURRENT EXPENSES TOO LARGE  The light of mature consideration has fallen on Sir Thomas Wliite's Budget and one feature is being assailed, the retroactive feature which is deaorlbed as reactionary by some members. The mass of Canadians, iowever, -will not object strongly to this feature as the tendency Is to inake the able man pay. However, there is one feature in connection with the budget which few members of the house have touched on, and that is the failure of the government to reduce its expenses for administration of departments, thus causing the finance minister to raise a very large sum for ordinary expenditure in addition to what is required for -war purposes. The Financial Post, which cannot be said to be opposed to the Ottawa government, says In this connection, that: "A regrettable feature is that Sir Thomas has not been able to Induce the heads of various departments to cut down estimates to any material extent. Ordlnaij- expenditure has to he provided for to an extent verging �upon the high mark In our history. In business undertakings. Sir Thomas Bbaughnessy furnished a good example, ordinary expenditure has been fixt down drastically. Similar 'war imeasnres* might reasonably have been expected from the responsible ministers of the crown. No more appropriate time than the present exists for radical measures in reducing the cost of administration which The Pi-jianclal Post has no 'doubt could be , done without In the least impairing the efficiency of service. At a time of naUonal peril some of the successful businesa men tljat now sit at the Tight of the speaker might be induced to put aside partisan consideration and apply the same principle to the operation of public service departments that are applied in their own husInesBes. They know perfectly well that the clerical and other work done for the, government of the country costs twice, or more than twice the same work costs In their own estab-llsbments." We h^v^ a good example in Lelh-fcridge of what can be done to curtail current expenses as a war measure. Both the city and the school board have done much in this direction. Is there any reason why the federal government should not set the good example? But they have utterly failed to do so. true. The German^ mark Is about 23 points down, and Germany's exijort trade is nil. That is verj- good evidence that the allied blockade policy is producing results. FOr further evidence as to internal conditions in the Teuton empires wo can gather some satisfaction from the following extracts of letters found on German wounded and prisoners who have fallen into the hands of the French. Translations of these ex-tract.s follows, and as the contents coincide pretty closely with what we might expect, we are satisfied to take them at their face value: November 21-After ser^lce the pastor came back and told us Joyfully that peace would be declared in February or March. E^eryone in church began to crj-; you could hear their sobs. December 12-You know A, the confectioner? He is training at Schles-wlg. WTion they gave him a ritie he fought and kicked, "I will not have it: 1 will not have It!" Recently another recruit fainted with fear. Fine men to defend our coui>tr>-. December 5-Many men from here have already been killed. An able-bodied man is becoming a rarity, November 17-It is natural we should sometimes lose courage. No one can think of pleasure, as there is nothing but mourning and misery. November 26-You simply ought to mutiny. That would be much better than getting killed or maimed. You have been at the war quite long enough, and we women, too, have had quite enough -of dying with hunger. �Berlin, November 5-The discontent caused by the deamess of living is increasing. Added to which is want of work. The morale of the people is very low. It will need verj- little for their anger to break out. December frr-We hope the war will soon, finish. People are beginning to bo restless, and provisions are short, Saturday we had our first riot. October 10-Soon we shall not know what to buy. Everything Is scarce and dear. The war must end soon or we shall die of hunger, as they say our enemies are doing. Tangstedt, October 29-We have potatoes, and that is the principal thing. God grant we do not die of starvation. If this w^ar goes on we shall lose all our courage and patience. Without the government allowance one has to go hungry and barefoot.. Berlin, December 5-In Berlin there is nothing .money can buy-no more food, no more milk. Eggs cost forty pfennigs.
