THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The shippinK losses for the past week have boon much lighter than usual and once more the German prediction of victory won by submarines has been given a body blow. The loss-?s have'been only IS ships of large tonnage, this being comparatively � very low llgure. It will be gratifying to the Knited States allies to know that their naval men have been successful in fighting Dff the submarines that attacked tjie transports conveying 1'. S. troops to France, and were even able to inflict severe losses on the Germans, sinking one or more of the submarines. The resumption of the Russian offensive has brought about a renewal nf the efforts to unite tiie fast-separ- an one-party government . In Tuesday's Spokesman Review, after intimating that the rift in the lute of President Wilson's cabinet may widen into a chasm, it goes on to say that "Republican leaders nre on the verge of revolt against further blind following of the administration lead, and in both parties there is distrust of the men now constituting the cabinet. Republican senators feel that President Wilson and Secretary Mc-Adoo are using the war to strengthen their party's hold on the presidency. They point to the opportunity in the huge expenditures provided for, the failure to use big men like Roosevelt. General Wood and other Republicans, the selection exclusively of strong Wilson men for the censorship committee, and the favoring of the south in encampments. "Kvery one who has been close to the machinery in Washington is about convinced that there must bo a change in the organization before the best results can be secured. Daniels of the navy department, and Baker of the war department inspire little confidence even among men of their own party, and feeling runs deep among Democratic senators that the president can not be trusted-that he is always on the point of running away with the bit in his teeth." Sticking strictly to party lines may be a good thing for government in ordinary tlines when there is not so much necessity for unity throughout the country, but in war times, when the whole people must have but one common aim. it is well if possible to do away with the suspicion which attaches to party control of affairs. Wilson made a mistake when he did not invite the aid of Roosevelt just as Premier Borden made a mistake when lie failed to offer coalition at the very start of the war. n5 where Manyberries is.

There is no doubt that the mine labor situation in Alberta is acute and It is up to the government to do j Gorman warlords are threatened with The German press is not allowed to tell the German people that the first American army has landed in France. That is a fatal admission of weakness. With Uncle Sam coming up and the Russian bear coming on, the something to remedy it if a coal famine this winter is to be averted. The mines are working now the large lignite mines which produce domestic coal have more than half their old crew. This following on a three months' strike, has caused a Berious outlook for this winter's coal supply for the prairie provinces. The mine operators have asked the new commissioner, W. II. Armstrong, to do something to fill up the gaps �which have been made. Hundreds of miners from District IS have enlist-d. Hundreds more have left the mine for the farm or other coal fields. There is no apparent surplus supply on the way to relieve the situation. Plainly the government should interest itself and do something to keep Canada's thousands of producers on the prairies from freezing next winter. The situation may not appear at all bad just now in the middle of summer, but that fact should not be the cause of any delay in procuring a further supply of miners. Now is the time when the coal must be mined and distributed over the prairies. When winter comes it will be too late. The public is vitally interested, in this problem, and action should be taken by them lo let the government know that they expect government action to meet the difficulty. a busy time. but none of i War J,ir>ister Kerensky of Russia j rode up to the front line trenches before Brzezany and told the soldiers that he would cross to the German trenches alone if they did not want to follow him. But they followed, showing their approval by capturing 10,000 Germans in a couple of days, and now they are threatening to retake Lemberg, the capital of Galicia. Thus did the Russian republic fight its first battle. May they continue the good work, and judging by tho | spirit displayed by the men enthused by Kerensky and Brusstloff, they are going to continue to the complete upsetting of Hun plans for an inert Russia. FOODSTUFFS SCARCE Canadian Woman Tells of Conditions In London. SUGGESTING COALITION IN UNITED STATES. Though to the outside world, the United States seems to present v. united.front, in the war in which she? is DOW engaged and for which she Is preparing so feverishly, nevertheless she, too, has her problems. Recent events of a political nature indicate a strong desire on the part of Americans to aee the United States do as so many of the other allied countries have done-form a coalition government in order to sweep aside the hub-picion which attaches to the acts of I money Few people in Canada realize the extent to which food control has been carried in Great Britain or how I much the people are on rations. A j Canadian woman who has just j returned from London after a resl- I dence of five years and who was . living in one of the best conducted ' pensions for six months previous to her departure says of the present conditions. "We had two meatless days a week. The daily supply of sugar was very small and was doled out to every person. We had no more white bread and it was impossible to secure any bread on the day it was baked. Margarine was largely supplied in place of butter. We had coffee only once a week. If you had cheese for deHsert, you could not have a sweet and it you hud a sweet you could not have cheese. Green vegetables were very limited." No such conditions have been reached In Canada, but the utmost economy is essential to prevent them.
