' ' ^ � s\' THE WAR SITUATION TODAY � Comparative quiet reigns along the battle ffronts in "Westeni Europe and ah eyes are at present turned to the eastern^ zone of campaign where the Germans are fighting furiously to save their country from bemg invaded by the Rufesian hosts. The light round iWarsaw has taken a secondary place' to what is now goinjf on along the East Prussian frontier and. in Galicia. In Uie former the Russians are more than consolidating the advance re-eahied after their defeat at Tannen-berg by von Hindenherg, and t^e 'driving' back to the Niemen. The Czar's forces are now stretching their 1 northern line southwesterly towards fThom.,nnd Posen, which latter lies in )� straight line east of Berlin, r The southern Russian army is at 'TTamow, about 40 miles east of Cra-icow threatening, with the taking of 'the Austri&n cilty. a march on 'Breslau lend towards BerUn along the Hver loder. Another army^ has Transyl-Tania almost i i its Hands, holding the ' Kirllbaba Pass in the Carpathians.' ; Oermany's Position will soon be pre^ . csrious unless the enemy stems thg i tide of Ufe Russians coming on this i tiiaar^.fh renewed and larger tium- LET'S HAVE A TRUCE It would be ,a sood tbing for .the.

On these loans interest has (been paid in the east with only a very trifling percentage of arrears, whil^ in- the west about 92 to 94 per cent, of all interest has been paid on time or within three months thereafter.' One company, owning aibout fifteen millions of dollars in Canadian municipal bonds had at the end of the year only three town and three school sectionjs, aggregating (4,500 of principal in default and this temporary default has_takein, place since August and has no real significance." There ;,ifl no better teet of a country's condition than the promptitude with whicii Jt pays the latest on its Ind^tedneea, and Sir Bdmund's statement ot war-time conditions is very cheering. ^ People's Forum AN OPEN - LETTER .

Several weeks later, I waa informed that the hattery was about to be moved to its quarters at the Fair grounds, and tbat I should see Major Stewart regarding the supply of bread.
