The Germans are expected to deliver a new blow very shortly on tho western front, but whether this will materlallie at once remains to be seen. Th^hj are few indications of It at present. The Brltieh. French and Americans are on the offeneive continually Just now. and have during, the past week or eo, won' back much ground, and have inflicted tremendous casualties upon the Germans, and have taken many prisoners. The attack by the Australian and American forces of this week, was the most noteworthy, inasmuch as it recaptured important ground, and did effective work in killing off a great many,Germans. pondonce Day, ho declared "There can be^but one issue. The settlement miiat be final. Thoro can be no com-promfse." ~ Socialist Gorman papers told us yesterday that Germany wn.s ready to make a reasonable peace. A Gei^an statesman told us last week that peace could be made whop, the ropro-sentativos of the combatants could meet, each with a feeling of confidence in tho honor and chivalry ot the other. A "reneonabio peace" on tho part of tlio Allies would bo one which could be rldatatlr tlia British farmers are having the aame trouble our own Canadian farmers re having. In answering the protests of the BrlUsta farmers,, �v -member ot the Government made - the declsration that, while the farmers thought they were having a bard time, the men at the front are having It'infinitely harder, 80 that while the duty of the country to produce la �tlU'paramount, the duty to -provide men for the fighting linos is infinitely more so. It 4b worthy of note in tUis connection that the British are now cdn-BCrtjrtlng for active service men from 49 to.51, and this includes farmers of th�.t'�gp. Under the clrcumstaricea and In oomp&tiiion, the Canadian ^rarme^ really has very little to ooraplaln of^ Our ngrlcultural production has been little affected by the Military Service Act. And remember we have, barely begun to direct the man power-still available In Canada away from nonessential fields Into-the field of production. In Britain 'tens ot thousands > of ..vom�n are taking the places of men om the farms. A proper understanding of what has beenaccomnllBh- - ed in the old land would remove prac-tioAlly all cause of opmplaint which our farmers have against the opera-tlon^'of the Military SeTvioe Act 6o -far. the occa�lon.'It is not a luxury to attend the ia'lr,'it is a duty, to combine education -vrtth aii�wSmli|i^'7Boo8't the fair and stamp�M�.and b^i*.t(vvls^.,wbich the farmers werei ordered to IVtORE CO-OPERATION EVIDENTLY NEEDED. If, as The Herald's Information from Tab'er would seem to indicate, the provincial police there went out of Uieir force tho farmers of that district to ship onfall their wheat it would seem that 'the provincial and Dominion officials should get together and investigate. There seems to have been a misunderstanding. 'U'e can quite well understand how It happened. There have been so many new food orders and orders ot a thousand and one different kinds -within recent months that one hardly knows what is what. We do not wonder, therefore, that the provincial police made a mistake. The wonder is that they do not make more mistakes in endeavoring to carry out the many orders iasued for our daily guidance. The Herald would suggest that there should be closer co-operation between the two governments to_ interpret tlje new orders and the manner ot their execution. The case of the Taber farmer^' wheat Is one which should not have arisen. The farmers were urged to move out their grain because it was badly needed by the Allies. Along with the request there was an in-timation that if the wheat did not come out voluntarily it might be forced to the market. However the authorities, by a little closer co-oparatlon, might have learned the true facts of the farmers' position as to next year's seed and the difficult situation which has ,been created might easily have been avoided. As it is, the Dominion Government is now going to find Itfielf in the position of finding seed to, rephice- thail '..inarket.,- , The need of .a., body to enforce the Government's food, registration and other orders in something other thanj the present haphazard manner, is making Itself felt. WHEN THE.V/ORLO WlWk tjAVE PEACE. President Wilson of the TTnitecl 8ta't�B put.tbe auletus on tlie expected Dub ^eace^oifenelye Avben. on tvAo- THE EVIL SPIRAL OF PROFITEERING. Thi N�w York Tribune has figured It out. .Nov^ vre know why the H. C. of L. takes such-abnormal jumps. Here's the Avay it works out: You are a manufacturer of shoos. Leather goes up. You call the tanner a profiteer-and prove to, him that he has advanced his prices more, than his, costa have risen. He may admit It, but bis defence Is that his costs are ad-vancing steadily and that before he-sells iyou leather again they may he very much higher. Therefore he Is obliged to increase his working margin. Or he tells you bluntly that he doesn't care what you think of bis prices. He can sell hia leather to-morrow for more. You buy it. Then your employees demand a raise. You say to thorn "But this Is a great deal to ask all at one time. The cost of living hasn't increased as much an that." They ans-wer that tho cost of living increases dally, whereas wages-are raised only at long intervals.* Bealdos, It you can't pay the Increkse they will go elsewhere. TUey are doing what the tanner did-adding a margin oj safety to ihetr demands, and asking,tor all tjiey think they can get. You raise their wages. Now you find that tho cost ot making: a palf of shoes has Increased 50 cents. But do you Increase the price to the retailer 50 cents? No, indeed. You .lay, "Leather will go goodness knows how much higher and I may have to raise wages again week titter next. To make sure I'll raise tho price of shoes $1 a pair." And what dons the retailer say? He calls y^u a profiteer, but you say to him what the tanner said to you. Then, does he add $1 a palf to the price of shoes? No Indeed. Ho aays "Things are going up ao fast that in a little whilo I'll have to raise the pay of luy dorks-again, and perhaps my rent will rise. I'll have to widen my margin of profit. Therefore, the price o( shoes will lie IncreaBed $1.50 ii pair." Multiply this Inatanco a thou.sand Lieut,' Gerald Hodgson, ot Nelson,'^ Is Interned in Holland.
