The defensive against the Russians on the east has been completely demoral- ized by the onsweep of the Ctar's farces, who -have made advances both in Gelicia and on the northern end of their line. On the western front the British are advancing in the 3Iontabaun region where they have co-operated with the French -where the lines meet, and are also making progress at Contalamai- son.

Wagons, faunlng-mills. gasoline -en- gines and separators are subject to tile same arbitrary procedure. How much farther this method will be carried we do not know. To put the matter in simple and concrete form the department of cus- toms at Ottawa has said in effect to the Grain Growers' Grain company: "You must not buy your tractor, wag- ons, tanning-mills, gasoline engines and separators from American manu- facturers. If you do you must pay an eitra fine over and above the regular protective tariff for so doing." To give some appearance of legality to this high-handed proceeding the de- partment of customs has invoked a tariff regulation known a? the "dump-i ing clause." The section of the clause Tnat school land sale at Carmangay applied to this case is as follows-. j shows what Southern Alberta farmers "In the case of articles exported to Uhink of Southern Alberta land.
