The Turkish terms of peace have been refused by Russia. The negotiations bet-ween Russia and Germany have been held up pending a decision to move to a neutral city. That is the eltuatlon with .respect to Russia today. In the meantime it is reported that General Kaledines and other forces moving against the Bolaheviki have been defeated. The French' attack of the other day on the western front furnished a. complete surprise to the Germans and the Frianchv.were able to Inflict severe loss'tupon them. On the Italian front the- allied' successes continue. RESTRICTIVE USE OF FIREARMS It Is no wonder that the Milk River Jury la con'cemed about the careless use of :tirearmB.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 revolve^ Barents sliould be ma'de re-BpDnBiblerfqr the use of these firearms and" then'they' would be .^more dareful bout permitting their children to use Uiem. It is Impossible to put a curb on careleBsness; It is a human weakness. Our lawmakers, mlglit make It more difficult, to carry a firearm and they might even amend our laws to enab;^ an example to be made of these I careless people. tnoclfacy and li jajaw' worMl deciaring #bit, iSey stima;.'fot"ln this tiwful Btru^SlO'. .It is 6?jmuch.lhD,^character as, Lloyd oiorgo but moro.elaborate and more definite. It should bring a response-from poor Russia for that new democracy Js .given, vital encouragement la the,addre.?,s..orPresident Wilson. Russia's real friends are the allies. They want to have her thrive and grow strong as a democracy. No territory is to be taken from her, and on the entire matter of territory President Wilson is profoundly clear. Territory that has been wrested from France and Italy must be handed back by tho conqueror and territory that has been devastated as has Belgium, Serbia and Montenegro, must be restored. Peoples that have been crushed like the diverse peoples of Austria-Hungary and the Armenians of Turkey, miist 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, Woodrow 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 aro 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 w^Ith this war.- Nations must act In the full light of the whole world and the world will decide upon the merits of their acta. Every demand of Woodrow Wilson forms a new jnagna charta for a world of peace, governed upon democratic principles, with liberty to all peoples. This new magna charta is well'fworth the struggle if we can gain it and establish it as the foundation stone of a new world after the war. Aid. J. A. McDonald,Is establlskiDk cider factory at Nelson.

Tho 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. [CanadBi to export more floiir. The plan ofcampalgn he outlines includes the placing of orders at once by'the government for teictors. plojvs, dlBC plows, and, in their turn, for ii^plements and macldnery for reaping and threshing, as >vell 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 prisoners of war and the co-operation of the people'of the United States in the harvesting of the crop. There is nothing fantastic or impracticable about this program. Oats can be sown in the west for some time after'the wheat is put in, and, were the available farm tractors of the Dominion and the Northwestern States mobilized in the early spring on the unbroken lands within reasonable distance of the lines that cross the prali^sV'ihlllionB � ofa'cres� that-.vfill Ol^fier^wisf prod^ nothing but weeds gjai^ rcr(l of education. .Edmonton must borrow a million and a half dollars for current expenditure.

It says the speech was framed in some parts so as to meet (the approval of the German working men. The newspaper adds that the premier's abandonment otthe 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 Alsace-Lorraine, the newspaper says the inhabitants of these districtB are not foreign or alien peoples within the Qerman state. ' If the natives of the German colonies are to be protected from exploitation by European capitalists why not also those of the British colonies, it asks. It would be underestimating the good sense of the British worklngmen if one assumed that these contradictions escaped their dlBcernment.
