As has been said before, he really has adopted Union government in the republic.

THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR President Wilson placed before the worid in the most emphatic and definite way possible yesterday, the aims of the allies'-in the; war. Their- re-ma'rkable defiuiteuess and their equal- r � Iy remarkable coiucidence with the statements of Lloyd-George cu the same theme a few days ago. have have created a profound impression No longer can there possibly be any doubt ia the minds of the central powers ^is to what-the allies strive for in this war. Full reparation and the safe-guarding of rhe peace of .the world ts the dominant note, of these alms, and as the president says, the allies are ready to fight for these until victory comes. Fighting is proceeding on an increasing scale on the French from in France and in Italy. In France the French in a surprise attack have penetrated German lines on a front oi' more than a mile. ASSUMING RESPONSIBILITY FOR HALIFAX LOSSES There is every likelihood according to the Financial Post that the Dominion government will assume the payment of losses incurred as a re-suit of the explosion on the munition ship Mont Blanc in Halifax harbor and that both the British and United States governments will contribute a share of the money required to make restitution to those who lost their property-in xhe-disaster. The Halifax disaster has imposed upon Canada a heavy national obligation. The people who lest their lives and those left dependent as well as those who had property destroyed were just as much war sufferers as though they had stood in the path of the German machine. If it is necessary that, such risks be taken in the conduct of the campaign then the na-tion must shoulder the responsibility. If it cannot protect the property and lived or" the people it must at least be ready to make recompense. The Financial Post is of the opinion that the government should make good tiie lo.sses of Halifax's citizens. The burden should be borne by the Canadian people just as the other burdens of the war. Uniortunately life cannot restored but the living who have buffered because of the dead should be taken care of. Then property losses should be. made good. The insurance c.nii paii ie s cannot be looked for to bear such u burden when it is doubt-ful U' they are even technically re-bponsible; ;they cannot be asked to pay for destruction by fire of property already destroyed by the explosion. Furthermore there were many properties unprotected or only partly covered. net is made up of Democrats but he has been able to obtain the support of his war policy by men of all parties in congress. And now what do we find him doing? Actually calling upon Lhe Democrats of Minnesota to elect a Republican as senator in that State. "We are told by the New York Outlook that: Knute Nelson, of Minnesota, a He-publican, has received a signal honor in President Wilson's suggestion to the Democrats of that State that its senior senator should be re-elected to the senate by both parties. This is not only a personal compliment to Mr. Nelson but also p.n acknowledgement of his value as a supporter of the government in this critical time. Mr. Xereon's opinions on ail subjects now before congress are those of a peculiarly shrewd observer and a man of far riper experience in state and national legislation than any possible successor could show. That is reason enough for the president's choice. Mr. Nelson was born in Norway, He came early to this country. He fought in the Civil War. He occupied various state offices. He represented Minnesota in three congresses. He was twice governor of his state. He Jias served twenty-two years'inthe United States senate. It is not too soon to think of the occunancy of his seat after March 3. 1?19. The president has happily given ex- Alex. Londry was elected mayor of Meaford.

During the holidays another happy ceremony was performed in Salt Lake, Utah, when two ot the popular young people of the district, Miss Grace Brandley, of Stirling, and Mr. Paul Redd, were made man and wife. They were married in the temple and will make their future home in Raymond, where Mr. Redd is a member of the teaching staff of the public school.
