BucTianah *6Tib Tormnc* Managing Director Business Manager THE WAR SITUATION TODAY Furious efforts on the part 6t the enemj' to effect important captures, or to materially advance his frodt in West Flnndefs and' Northern France, as a 'birthday gift to the Kaiser yesterday, have failed in their results. Notahly has this heen the case round Ypres, the occupation of which has heen importunately urged on his commanders soihatfliD war lord may bo in a position to . proudly proclaim: "All Belsiuia is " mine," The heroic defence of this town and the line barring the -way ^ to the Channel ports has been too much for the fierce onslaughts of the Teuton. Similar fighting has heen going" on in the ricinity of the "canal townV of Lffibassee, in France, and the -Allies are apparently aiming at re-possesa-ing tills importatit railway centre. The Germans here claim a partial victory, declaring that fhey have captured the -\llies' trenches on the south of the canal. �. � in Poland it is reported that a battlQ has faSen place between the 'Russian and German forces, and that the enemy being defeated at Mla.wa retreated towards Soldau, within -tha boundary of East Prussia. The, deadlock along the three rivers tributary to tlie Vistula by Warsaw still continues, and no - further advance to-'ward* the Pol'sh capital has  been made possible for the enemy. iff FIGHTING HUMANITY'S BATTLE, TOO The British sailor is humane; the German sailor is not humane. When the German fleet defeated the ships commanded by Admiral Sli" Charles Craddock no attention was paid'to the �.liuman beings Btruggling in the sea; they passed through' the floating- bod' .les as though they were cakes ot ice. That is the German way. No so with the British tar. The H&w York World Is authority tor the statement that in tUe naval Ibattle off the FalMaad ^Islands, when the German squadron ; fflraaypracticaUy wiped oiuit, the cruiser � iDresden escaped destruction because Hxer .pursuers suspended the diase long enough to pick up the survlvora of the Nnrnberg^ which had been "Bunk iby the British gun fire. We do not look for much evidence of humanity in the time of struggle between rival nations, but it cheers us all to kiiow that iJritaln bas men fighting its {battles .who care-for their fellowmen; even though they, may;be enemies. The action of the men of ithe British light cruisers in stopping to pick up survivors from the Blucher on Sunday, until attacked iby German aircraft, bears ' out "what we ha^e said, and furnishes the contrast we have tried to convey. and then to thread a way through the ftjines-^ftny one 6t -wJtilcb:.; fesplodltyt tfligW: have meant the end-and raise the periscope near the TVirklah vessel, lying oil unconscious of the nUno-field, "taKe tho "bearings and launch the torpedo." Jt is because Britain has men of the Holbrook tyoe fighting for It upon land and sea that victory must ultimately rest upon its arms. These men are serving voluntarily and enthusiastically. They are not forced to fight. Tliey are flghtibg because Britain is wbrth fighting tor. The Germans put & whole lot ot misguided faitb in their boasted Zeppelins. Commander Hewlltt, who par-tl'cipated in the Cuxhaven Christmas Day raid.-chnracterizes,them as bags of wind or -wonls to that effect. He flew alongside one of them and It was quite .harmless to Injure him. The Zeppelins live up to the German reputation-Alright. One thiog that can be said about Vice Admiral Beatty: he doesn't blow his 'own horn. Sunday's naval battle, according to his first report, was simiply a day's work, one German raider being put hors de combat Bye wltiieas' sftories just coming to light tell a whole lot more. The Blucher was sunk and tlie fast wing of Tii> pltz*^ aggregatiop will decorate tlie hospital for a good many months. Guess Britons needn't, fear while such men as Seatty are at the helm. P ICKED UP IN ASSING. �. FOR THB BUSY >tAN If, as it appears, the choice ot a chaplain to jfeo with the Alberta boys in the second contingent falls on Canon McMlllen, there wlU .be pleasure alronnd, except In the case ot his congregation who will be sorry to see him fo and whom he will be sorry to leare. Canon MoMlllen Is eminently fitted for the post. He knows men, he is a lover of athletics, and will command the respect , of the men with' Whom he win !be associated. Lethbrldge will be proud U he Is chosen. - ' HOLLBROOK'S V. 6. When the history of this war is - WT-itten there will be many notable deeds of bravery rec.ordei^, but prob-aibly none will compare with the oon^ dujct of Lieutenant Commander N. X>. HoUbrook, .the commander of submarine ll...which entered the Dardanelles on Decemiber 13th, and after diving under five rows of mines, succeeded- in torpedoing the Turkish battleship Messldyah. In respect of this daring exploit the naval correspondent of the Ivondon Times sayo: � "The most striking circumstance in connection with this fine feat of seamanship and courage-IS the negotk)-tlon of the mine fields, five rows of which Llwit. HoVbrook riassed under in taking B 11 to-lhe place where she found her: quari^. The under-water s'avigatlon 'of the Dardanelles is made most perilous and difficult by the Bwlft currents Which sweep through the straits,'andi striking the various projecting points are turned into, eddies and -whirlpools. Under such^con-ditions to. tipc^ the submarine, bli^d as she Is, and teel her away along Hon. Dunoan Marshall handed out some ^lain truths about the back to the land movements just now-so pop-iilar. Back to the land Is a phrase that rolls on the tongue and Ucklea the fancy, but If anyone imaBlned that thg life of a farmer Is a sinecure, a "backs to the land" job, all he needs to do is to take a alx months' course in the school ot hiird knocks. Being hired man lor Blx months will tumliih the proof of the pudding. But, aiind, we're not knocking the back to the lani mo-vemiBnt. We jUst want people to realize what Ifcimeans before they try it. We don't want them to think eveirthing is rosy and then find themselves knocks Ing the country stx months, hence,be-, cause there are thorns .&mong the roses. ' QOD SAVE THE K(NG.

The London Morning Post's Washington correspondent-states that New Yorli bankers hear that a loan ot $100,000,000 will be made by United States interests to Canada.
