THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Itussia and Bulgaria have come to terms and war has ceased between them according to today's dispatches. The Turkish terms of peace have been refused by Russia. The negotiations between Russia and Germany have been held up pending a decision to move to a neutral city. That is the situation with respect to Russia today. In the meantime it is reported that General Kaledines and other forces moving against the Bolshevik! have been defeated. The French attack of the other day on the western front furnished a complete surprise to the Germans and the French, were able to inflict severe loss upon them. On the Italian front r l the allied successes continue. tuocracy and a new world declaring what they stand for" in this awful struggle. It is of much iho same.char-! acter as Lloyd George but more clab-} orate and more definite. It should bring a response from poor Russia for that new democracy is given vital encouragement in the address of President Wilson. Russia's real friends arc , the allies. They want to have her 1 thrive and grow strong as a democracy. Xo territory is to he taken from iter, and on the entire matter of territory President Wilson is profoundly clear. Territory that has been wrested from must be handed back by the conqueror and territory that has been devastated as has Belgium, Serbia and Montenegro, must be restored. Peoples that have been crushed like the diverse peonies of j Austria-Hungary and the Armenians of Turkey, must be released from their bondage and given freedom and opportunity to live their own lives and follow out their aspirations. To the unfortunate depressed peoples of the world. Wood row Wilson's deliverance will be an inspiration, and to those of us who have all along realized the full meaning of the war there is stimulation and encouragement to "carry on" until the great objects of the allied nations are attained. The President strikes a blow at re-cret diplomacy and we applaud him for his clear-cut demand for open dealing among the nations. The day of secret bartering must end with this war. Nations must act in the full light of the whole world and the world will decide upon the merits of their acts. Every demand of Wood row Wilson forms a new magna charta for a world of peace, governed upon democratic principles, with liberty to all peoples. This new magna charta is well Kvorth the struggle if we can gain it and establish it as the foundation stone of a new world after the war. -* PICKR 0 UP PASSING *oR THE bvsy MAN a Aid. J. A. McDonald is establishing cider factory at Nelson. RESTRICTIVE USE OF FIREARMS It is no wonder that the Milk River jury is concerned about the careless use of firearms, and is calling upon the authorities to more strictly enforce existing laws concerning the carrying of firearms. Almost every day we read of tragedies similar to the one that occurred near Milk River. Almost all of them are due to carelessness and a considerable number to the possession of firearms by mere children. In cases of the latter kind, ^parents are largely to blame in allowing children to handle rifles and revolvers. Parents should be made responsible for the use of these firearms end Hi en they would be more careful about permitting their children to U3e them. It is impossible to put a curb ou carelessness; it is a human weakness. Our lawmakers, might make it more difficult, to carry a firearm and they might even amend our laws to eiiabie an example to be made of these careless people. PUBLICITY IS THE BEST PLAN Edmonton's new mayor is said to want secret transaction of civic bu3i-ness, except at council meetings. Re-gina, we understand, followed this practice and has now changed its plans. Civic business is the people's business and the fullest publicity should be given to that business. In Parliament and Legislatures committees are open to the full light of publicity and why not in municipal af-fairs? The people pay the taxes-in Edmonton, of course, there are an awful not who don't-and why should-, nt they know what the council, their, elected representatives, are doing. A city council is not a bank or insurance company board of directors, it is a I public body responsible to the public,,, and the public has every right to know what it is doing. It is argued, of. course, that publicity at the wrong' moment, may do harm. Possibly so, but few newspapers will give a matter publicity at the wrong moment, if by so doing a city and its ratepayers may suffer. Most newspapers are only too willing to co-operate with civic bodies for the welfare of the community. Let Edmonton trust its newspapers and it will find that they /will use good judgment and not do anything to injure the city or Its best interests. Lack of publicity tends to autocracy in government. Publicity is the best friend of democratic government. Representatives who act with the public looking on give better service, than electors who act with the eyes of the public "closed. A SUGGESTION FOR THE PRAIRIE PROVINCES A Peterboro man, in a letter to the Toronto Globe, urges that not a moment is to be lost in organizing to produce a great crop of oats in the prairie provinces during the comi-ag season. The coarse - grains which could be produced here from land not now under cultivation would permit the doubling of our livestock, particularly hogs, and would provide millions of tons of food for the people and the livestock of Great Britain. Cheap oatmeal, this man says, will also enable Canada to export more flour. The plan of campaign he outlines includes the placing of orders at once by the government for tractors, plows, disc plows, and, In their turn, fcr implements and macl .inery for reaping and threshing, as well as for additional storehouses for the crops; the organization of the labor resources of the Dominion, and the securing of additional help by the utilization of i prisoners of war and the co-operation j of the people of the United States in j the harvesting of the crop. There is nothing fantastic or imprac- Philo Lamb, pioneer Toronto hotel-man, is dead. An additional train mileage of 3,-000,000 annually has been eliminated in the .Western States.

PRESIDENT WILSON'S GREAT DELIVERANCE Within a couple of days the two greatest statesmen of the world have spoken and in tones that are so clear that the whole civilized world must respond to their call. Lloyd George's r utterance of last Saturday was great and commanding but Woodrow Wil-sonis deliverance of Tuesday is even p more so. America's president undoubtedly speaks for the allies, fol- f * lowing the conference his close adviser, Col. House, had with the al-lied leaders in England and France, only recently. It is the voice of de- One of Canada's new Knights gave away nearly a million dollars in war profits. The custom has been to give a/Baronetcy to the men who hang on to their profits. The change in policy is commendable. Lighting fires with coal oil takes as much toll as the carelesB handling of firearms. Almost every day we read of deaths from either one source or the other. Will people ever learn that death hovers near the practice of each habit? Alex Ross, labor M.P.P. is Scotch all right. He wants labor to get all benefits possible and if he can get them, from a Grit government in A I-berta he won't grumble a bit' Better that than waiting until labor has a ma-jority of members of the legislature. Labor men favor the factory act and we are not surprised and don't blame them a bit. The act needs to be trimmed up a good deal, nevertheless.' As it is now it in a conglomeration of contradictions.

R. board announces that negotiations have been broken off with the G.T.R. and that the men have asked for a board of conciliation in their demands for a minimum wage and a nine hour day. The company is disinclined to recognize the union which comprises machinists, boilermakers, blacksmiths, etc. Thirteen hundred men from Sarnia to Montreal are affected. Geo. A. Warburton of Charlottetown.l P.E.I., received a cablegram stating that his son, Hugh Warburton, B.A., has been lost at sea, while on his way from England to Nigeria, Central Africa, to resume his duties as assistant' commissioner. The ship was torpedoed and sunk with all on board. Warburton was one of the island's Rhodes scholars and had graduated from Mc-Gill University. L'Evenement, of Quebec, discussing the attempted boycott of the English provinces by French-Canadians, says: "It would be odious and absurd for Quebec to follow such foolish advice. If she refuses to continue the commercial relations with Ontario and the west there would be a crisis, but one might wager a thousand to one that Quebec would suffer-most. Partisans of the boycott are playing with a boomerang." Frank Gwynne Tudor the new Prime Minister of Australia, was formerly gara Falls power plants and appropriating 520,000,000 for the purpose was introduced by Representative Waldo of New York in Congress. Robert Staveley, who was a well known Montreal builder and contractor for many years, Is dead, aged 85. He witnessed the mob set fire to the old parliament building on McGill street in 1854.

A telegram has been sent by the board of trade at Halifax to the federal government stating that both the railway and military authorities have notified the board that they are in a position to handle both Incoming and outgoing troops and asking that no further f.roops be diverted from Hall-fax. Fire originating in the general store of W. H. Pritchard, Mitchellton, Sask., destroyed that property and in addition to that also destroyed the general store and warehouse and residence of R. Jampolslky. The inmates of Mr. Jampolsky'H house had a narrow escape from the building, getting away only with their nlghtclothes. The loss is approximately 120,000. Owing to a break in the chlorina-tion plant which occurred about a month ago, the city of Hull is confronted with an epidemic of typhoid fever. Already there are 29 cases of fever at the Hull hospital, and ft is estimated by physicians that there are over one hundred cases in the city. Governor Frazier of North Dakota has issued a call for a special session of the North Dakota legislature for January 23 to consider the feed and seed needs of that state'B farmers, The governor believes that no assistance can be expected .from the federal government. He plans to raise a fund, and issue seed warrants for 150 bushels to each farmer operating 160 acres of land. Berlin, Jan. 9.-Vorwaerts, the prin- f cipal organ of the Socialists, in com-1 menting on the war aims speech of j Premier Lloyd George declares the premier masqueraded in a carefully selected disguise. It says the speech was framed in some parts so as to i meet the approval of the German j working men. The newspaper adds , that the premier's abandonment of the j attempt to interfere in Germany's internal affairs is gratifying and that his demand that the states which have been overrun in the course be restored to complete independence will not call forth contradiction. Referring to j Alsace-Lorraine, the newspaper says j the inhabitants of these districts are not foreign or alien peoples within the German state. If the natives of the German colonies are to be protected from exploitation by European capitalists why not also thoBe of the British colonies, it asks. It would be underestimating the good sense of the British workingmen if one assumed that these contradictions escaped their discernment.

London, Jan. 9.-(Via Reuter's Ottawa Agency).-In connection with the loss of British destroyers cabled on December 29, it transpires they successfully fulfilled the most important duties. When the first one was hit below the water line the other destroyers, risking mines and submarines, unhesitatingly responded to the call for assistance and threw everything floatable overboard to the men in the water. Many of them were saved, while from another destroyer sinking with all on board all were taken off in the most skilful manner. Everyone behaved in accordance with the highest traditions of the British navy. A surgeon, after hours in the water, attended wounded and some of the rescued. For Soldiers' Families Messrs. A. M.

N. to the M.F. and M. tracks. The jury, foreman A. L. Walker and D. McVannell, P. Lundie, W. Perry, J. E. Graves and N. J. Locke, brought in a verdict of accidental death with no blame attaching to any one. Paul Gyneskl, was about fifty years old and leaves a widow and seven small children to mourn his loss. He was a miner of steady habits, and had, as others had also done, been in the habit of taking a short cut for home, which led him across the tracks inside the yard limits. Yesterday evening tbere was a high wind, with snow blowing down the valley and it is supposed he did not hear the train approaching in time to jump from the track.
