In spite of the denials of the Bolshe-vlkl authorities, the sltnstlon In Rus ala ifl evidently developing an alarming state of feeling against their rule and against the German domination. ,Reports.�which come-out of the country Indicate that the real patriots of Kussia -hare risen and are gradually obtaining' control of vaffairs, or are at least making a tremendous effort to do so. Czechs In "Siberia are also gaining power and this is causing �nxlety in Germany. The necessity of placing a large German �rmy of occupation in Russia would seriously cripple German operations elsewhere. French troops on the western front euccessfuUy attacked Gennan lines yeeterday, gaining, more than a mile in depth on a four mile front and many prisoners. Italians are sweeping; ' away; Aui-trlan resistance "^n the.Italian front, and are driving the invadera still farther back. - EVERY REASON FOR OPTIMISM. � In �pite of certain conditions which have arisen in' respect to crops and pasturage in Southern Alberta, there is absolutely no reason for growing panicky, about Southern Albe^a's financial situation.

Tke.recent destruction by a- Ger-�'submarine of a hospital ship re-tsming to Bngland from Can^d^ has  rivetted the atteratJion of Canadians on the Hun undersea boat warfare. Nursea from every province in the Dominion'who .weie proceeding overseas, were idlled in action in the sinking of the Llandovery 'Castle. The '�\ horrors of eubnirfrine warfare have been brought home to us as never bo--'.fore, ven following the appearanca of :' viraie craft oft the New Ko^iana ��gM|-t .a fey, weeks ipgo.. . ' Under the �lrcumBtahcoB, therefore, .tb� ((fliowiDg Official report by Ad- Bilral Slmhis, commander of tjio U.S. naval forces in Buropean 'watera, �n-lU have a loaesurlng effect, for ho shows us that, while U-boata wUll still continue to commit occasional outrages, they will never be able to cut the Allied lino of communication between Europe and America n'nd other .sources of supply of men and munitions. Hero 1.1 the comprehonalve view taken by Admiral Slmms: The fact that the enemy has sent eubmarines so fnr afield as the American coast, said the Admiral, is a confoeslon of weakness, hocauso it is a violation of the fundamonlal military principle of concentration of effort, which alone can be succos.stui in accompMshing the object desired. There will he-losses on our coast, and they will of course be regrettabtc, but the public at home'shotild keep thedr eyes upon the success of the war, as'a whole. I can assure them that the submarine operations on our coast will not affect the outcome of the war, but, on the contrary, strange as it may eeem to those not ifamillar with the object, such operations are a real advantage to the Allies. With the small number of torpedoes and quantity of ammunition tiiat a submarine can carry, and in view of the rel.ntively small number of submarines which the enemy has available, cruises  as far afield ne the American coast are very unprofitable. U-boat operations on our coast will be profltablo to the enemy only so f-ar as they excite public opinion, and in any way, directly or indirectly, affect the disposition of our forces. Discuselng the general naval situation, the Admiral said: The world is witnessing to^lay the most impressive manifestation of sea power that history has ever recorded. The enemy has not a single -surface vessel on any of the trade routes. The Seven Seas are free to Allied commerce. A year ago Allied tonnage was decreasing, and the number of submarines �was increasing and the Central Powers were winning the war by rap-9dly cutting the fines of communica-tion of the Allied countries and their armies. The conditions are now reversed. "Tonnage is rapidly Increasing, and the submarines are decrea^g in number and in efficiency. The sub-inarlne campaign, is therefore, doomed to failure. This change has been brought about by the sea power of the Allies. With practically no losses, many milKons of soldiers ..have croesed the English' Channel and hundreds of thousands have crossed.the ocean from Allied colonies amd from America. This was rendered possible only because of the thousands of Allied deetroyers, trawlers, mine sweepers, drifters, sloops, submarines, and even amall motor launches, employed tin convoying troop ships and eupply ships and in harassing and destroying enemy submarines. These small' vessels are able continuously to perform this great service only beca'us.e the German fleet is, obliged to renJaln ;wvth'in the shelter of its fortified harbors and minefields. If the enemy cruisers were free to Uke the sea they could too quickly destroy or drive into port our es-cortSng and patrolling craft, Uius leaving our merchant shipping entirely de-ifenseless. It is the silent and irresistible power of the Allied battle fleets that pre vents this, that Imposes npon.the enemy fleet yie huiplMation of imjio-tence. None of his surface veesels can do more than attempt a sudden raid and scurry back to port before being Intercepted by superior forces. Only the submarines -can hope to escape nnobserved and prey upon commerce. The' civillf ed '^orld could not pos slbly belieyV tha,t cargo, passenger and hoepital ships would be sunk without warning and their crews and passengers left to their fate. Conse quently the Allies had not taken the necessary measures to resist such acts of piracy. "To organizo theee measures has neceasdrlly required time, but they have steadily progressed and are improving every day. This result has been accomplished by the strenuous efforts of the navies of the Buropean AlJIee-and of the navy of AinijirlBi|.rBuliaiiig programs hav^ � beeiKr^ast and all {'efforts have been made to construct the vessels that are suitable for opposing th? submarine. The ingenuity of practllca] men and. scientists has been called upon" to devlee means for' tracking and destroyihg the submarines, it is no longfer a-secret that the most effective means have been the adoption ot the convoy system, the development of an efficient depth charge and the Invention of devices which enable* surface vessels to follow euttpierised Bubiiiarine by sound. ^PICKED urn M PASSING Mtm^k^UAk J.
