THE PROGRESS OF THE. WAR. The Italians In local attacks ves-terday improved their positions on the Italian front against the Austrlans. Attacks- over Dominion Day on the �wostom front have wonderfully improved the allied lines, French, Brl-tiah and Americans all record successes. The Americans in a brilliant attack captured th town of Vaui. while the French and British repulsed attacks on their Unei, and also made auccessful raids which gained for them m^re territory. That is the crux of the fuel situation. Probably' tho recent I'oglstratlon of the' tnan-pownr-of Canada-will-pro' duce results. Over-Holiday Bulletins THE %LgrHBRliy)p. NEED OF MINERS CRUX. OF FUEL SITUATION. It la to be hoped that the frenr.ied talklest, already countenanced too long in Winnipeg, will soon be replaced by some well organized unoe-tentatious action by the GoTernments, coal operators, and dealers and rail-�ways, which will result In a more tan-(tble guarantee against a fuel famine next winter. This. Is tbe good advice handed out recently to Wlnnlpeggers and others by Toronto Saturday Night. Continuing, Saturday Night declares that there has been altogether too much "can't be done" raring by a certain element, who either do not yet realize a war ie on, or are playing a vote-catching campaign; so much so, in fact, that the public has become somewhat confused. Instead of so many Jaunts to Ottawa by civic offlclais, who seem to'still assume that the United States and Federal officials in this country have been working some �ort of a jolly in tbe recent definite order about the aerlous coal situation, greatly inteasified by the entrance of the United States Into the war, they vould be much better employed making a real serloui effort to get in tock every available ton ot western G�al. Nor la It right that the problem I �bquld be left to the municipalities. iThe Provincial and Federal Governments are equally responsible. Inatead-'of so many overlapping talkative "fuel controllers," would It not be much more effective to secure some central organization, made up ot competent and practical representatives f^om the Federal and Prorlhclal Oovemmeata, the mining Interests pnd' railways, who would be wholly . responsible tor the necessary supply of ooal at each point? The governments ['}t^ are sadly lacking In any special display ot inltlatlye In a matter which transcends all others just now in arlousneas. There Is no doubt a'Jout what win happen to the prairie popu latlon It auttlclent fuel Is not sup piled-�nd If any families "fi-ees^ to death," a point which so many talk fbout, It win be tbe fault ot lacka-(lalsical Government officials. There is ample wood and coal in Western Canada to keep everybody comtort-'.�bta throughout the winter months, nd It te up to the Oovemmenta to [fmplby ' such imlfled organitatlbn; Ith full powers to insure the public alnst ail danger ot fuel shortage. iBut tt win hot be done with talk, Ik/talk^ The time for that has long aoa'pftissd. The only thing that ^i(pui)ta now Is action. and_ particularly furitif tbe summeir ji^onths before (he grsln movement starts-even it OoTsnnnent has to finance the flWPly Uroporarlly. With over halt ot M BrltlBb Bmplre's coal supply llored in''Western Canada, it does any. much tor tbe West's much-fpuntwl .aggressiveness to Ulk so iiubli about freeslng to death under Ij^aaf conditions. It la time to stand � our own feet. ^ ^Saturday Night would do much to trtngthen Its campaign on behalf of I'Western ooal for Western Canada induce the government to bing practical in tbe way ot |jt^>i^'wi^^ aupply of miners.

It was announced Recently, says the Toronto Globe, apparently upon the authority of the Allied higher command, that no endeavor will .bo made to conduct offensive warfare In that part of the Venetian plain to the cast of the Piavo. and that tho Italians will rest content with driving the Auslriana back to tho positions from which they started out some days ago. This decision is in pirt due to the fact that tho danger to Italy Is not yet past and that largo bodies of Austrian troope are known to bo gathering In the Tren,tlno for', another attack on. .the Allies-who'hold the Alpine front. .U would, be Uio height of .folly for tlfe Italians to press forward into tho Julian Alps again, leaving a powerful enemy in a position from which he might repeat tho tactics of- Caporetto with even more disastrous results. Sound strategy, therefore, requires that until the enemy menace on tho .Aeiago Plateau and along the Brenta Is removed by a decisive Italian victory on tho Alpine front the Austrians shall not be pressed back from the Piave to the Isonzo. But there are more than local reasons for General Foch's decision in favor of defensive warfare in Ven-etla. He is endeavoring by every means at hie command to build up the reserve army with which he hopes at the most favorable moment to resume open warfare upon a scale that will insure speedy victory for the Allies. He requires jOf the Italian army the same self-sacrifice toward that great end which he has already obtained from the British, French, and American armiee. On the West-tern front since March 21st the Allies have met four great enemy attacks with purely defensive tactics. They have been content to lose ground and to hold the Germans firmly at the maximum point of advance rather than Incur heavy casualties In recapturing the territory overrun by them. There seems scarcely any reason to doubt that in the battle of the Flanders ridgee at the end of April, and In the last phase of the battle of the Oise early in the present month, the Allied troops available for use could have recovered a large part of the ground fought over upon these occasions. The men enj^ged must have been keenly desirous of doing so, and pnly the strong will of the commandor-In-chlef, eipreased In definite orders Ip Ithe Allied army leader*. coUId have held them strictly to the defensive save for one day of vigorous counter-attacking along the Matz, when the enemy came too close to Compelgne. - The Italians can have no quarrel with General Foch if he follows In Italy the same prudent course so consistently pursued in France of holding the line with the slighteet possible force, taking heavy toll of the enemy tor every foot of ground he. insists upon occupying, and leaving time to secure for the Allied armies-through the arrival ot American reinforcements-the numerical superiority that was lost when Russia and Roumania retired from, the conflict. It had been suppoeed generally that this policy must involye the postponement of an. Allied offensive on a great scale till the summer or early taU of 1919 and the continuation of hostilities well Into. 1920. That yiew may be modified in face ot the official statements appearing from week to week as to the speeding up of the transportation of American troops to France. At the present rate of shipment there will be at least a miUlon and a half Americans In France by the first of October, and a million ot them will b^ Infantry of, first-line quality. A winter in the trenches will harden these men sufficiently to enable theoi by March or April of 1919 to become part of'the Allied army which win try'.conclusions with the Germans in the open field. In that army Foch evidently hopes to have many Italians who might otherwise be thrown away during the present season In partial attacks on the Austrian positions In the Julian Alps without accompllsh'lns any Important result. If by continuing to wage defensive warfare during the remainder of the prstent campaigning season against the attacks. Hindonr burg is boun'tj.tojiiiake^br stand utter-lydlscredlted, I th'e ~ comn�ander-in-chlef can open the campaign next season with his Unei fui|y manned and an army of raanoe^vr? oj three million of the best troops' in tVance, Brliain, the United States i^nd Italy,' tho re?iilt will not be long in doubt. He will have the advantage alike in numbers and In morale, and his achievements during the past three months in hold In^ off the rushes of the enemy prove that he Is more than a match for HIndeubui-g und'Llidetidorff Iti the haudllug' of vast maHHes ut iiioii. The great defensive of Focli continues, but the day appVbaches when ilio hunted will become tbe hunter. flMSDAY. .TILY 2, 1918 QO.TO FRANCE.
