A. Buchanan John Director Bulinew ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR There is evidence of a weakening ol the Teutonic drive in roiand, ac- cording to yesterday's dispatches, and less anxiety is now felt over the situ- ation there. From the Italian front comes news of further Italian successes. the Austrian counter-attacks are said to have been renulsed with heavy loss. The Russians have repulsed Turkish attacks in the Caucasus, and French destroyers on the coast of Asia Minor have been doing damage to Turkish vessels. It is stated that a tentative draft of the German reply to the latest Un- ited States note on the Lusitania has been forwarded to diplomatic circles at Washington, and that it is not at all satisfactory to the Wilson admin- istration. The full note will probably oe forwarded to Washington and pub- lished in a few days. SIR RICHARD AND THE SUBMARINES Sir Richard McBride is very indig- nant that there should exist serious insinuations in connection with ihis purchase of submarines for Pacific ioast defence. Nevertheless, remark! the Winnipeg Free Press, there are a large number of people in Canada -n-ho regard the purchase ot these submarines "iy Sir Richard McBride as-an operation in high finance well worthy of the most searching toTestl- gation by the .Commission none sitting at Ottawa for .the inreetigation of scandals in the purchasing of mat. supplies. Sir Richard McBride, is Premier of British Columbia, on his ova initiative, Jumped in and bougfat two submarines from United States parties, paying for them from 'the provincial funds and being in turn recouped by the Dominion government These submarines had been Jroilt at the Fore .River Works, on the Atlantic coast, for the navy of Chili at a price of apiece. They had the con tinent by train and assembled in the harbor at Seattle. There -they were assembled and put to a test by the. erpert sent _by the Chilian govern- ment to take'them over. He rejected them both as unsuitable. ..Whereupon, American interested >ifho had their money, tied up in the boats, sold them to the British Columbia government for Jljaywi. which was more', than Ohili would hare paid for them if they had .been up.to tions." which ihsy -ere not objected to' putting oitra taxes on rirltiahViopdi a time when the Em- pire .Is engaged in so great a >ar. The 'amendment' was truthfully and patriotically proportion- ately drawn. The taxes did not bring the revenue looked for, but did make every article involved cost more to the consumer.. He quoted revenue statistics to show that the war tales have, proven unsatisfactory. Every farmer who bought a press drill since the taxes wore enforced has paid more for it without bene- fit to the Federal treasury. A tariff which benefits the rich and oppress- M the poor is diabolical in principle. The political ambitions of Germany are represented by opposing forces, those of Chancellor von Beth- mann-HollweE and of Admiral von Tirpitz. The Chancellor has adopted moderate and peaceful views as to the claim of Germany in this vfar, and the terms likely to result from it. He is opposed, Tre are told, to per- manent dominion over Belgium, and to the ambitious scheme of imperial aggrandizement Admiral von Tir- pite, on the other hand, represents the extreme militarist party of tha junkers, who hold that now is the time to smash the British Empire. His plan is to make peace with Rus- sia, to break the French anad British lines to Calais, and to concentrate ill power of attack upon England alone. To further this plan, he and his party advocate war with America in order tiat submarine attacks upon British shipping may be unhampered by having to respect American ves- sels. Upon the rival influences of the Chancellor and the Admiral will de- pend the final answer to the Ameri- can note. PICKED UP IN IASSING THE IUSV MAN Dr Inn, o!

Most of the farmers are in a position' to handle their own crops without outside help. However, I believe that at least 25 men, and perhaps 50, can find employment in this district during a month or so while harvesting is at its height.
