Russian government is reported to have ordered a strengthening of the frontier defences. In the meantime General Kaledines is gathering a great force behind him with the object of the overthrow of thi government. No matter which way the pendulum swings, the Germans are likely to be engaged again for some time on the eastern front. The reinforced "Italian armies have returned to the offensive against the Austro-German invaders -and with the aid of the French troops have how succeeded in dislodging the Teutons entirely from the west bank of the Piaye, in positions wtych they h*Ave ^held practically since the commencement of their invasion. This is sure 'evidence that the Teutonic successes on ttie Italian front are over. �CONTROLLING OUR The province, and in fact the Dominion, should be interested in the plan for the credit of the west depends on the manner in which the country meets its debts, and the debts of the cities are among the heaviest so far created. We must arrange our finances so that we can continue to pay our debts without an undue strain, and if we curtail to the minimum further capital expenditures, we will find that, with the growth of i population that is bound to come to this new country, especially after a declaration of peace, the tax burden will grow annually easier. Western Canada has the resources to create all the wealth needed to pay every dollar we have borrowed. What we need is more population and capital to develop those resources.
