THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The Germans have sot little farther with their drive on the Belgian front, �which appears to have been halted. Other German attacks on the western front have been repulsed, particularly "by the French. Reports from Italy are to the effect that there are one million surplus Italian troops available for service on any front, and these will be shortly placed by the allies. The Russians are making rapid progress in their offensive. taking more prisoners and guns, They are approaching l.cmberg and have also cut through the Austrian lines near Stan-lsiau. CITY PASSES UP A SOURCE OF REVENUE. Is Commissioner Freeman overlook-in? a bet? The excuse Is made that the reason the much-talked-of-sign in Henderson lake was allowed to disfigure the landscape was that the city needed the revenue. But the merry-go-round, which earned $16S on July 2 lu a few hours during the afternoon and evening has been practically idle ever since. It isn't only the revenue that would come from this source that hould be considered. Anything in the nature of an attraction at Henderson Park means added revenue to the street railway. It is quite evident that it would not be policy to pay a man to keep the merry-go-round going every afternoon and evening. But surely it would be possible to find an employee of some department of the city to run on certa';: days. afternoons and evenings, and the fact that it would be run at those times advertised. The merry-go-round cost the city H.720 infantry reinforcements nvnll-| ablo In England or just enough for' two months. There were about 30,- j 000 other men not sufficiently trained, i under age, or convalescent and we j '.iad only 10,500 additional reserves in Canada. In the face of these fig-1 ures opposition to conscription takes the form of neglect of our Canadian army at the front. Some of our men who went over with the first and second divisions should be relieved and given a chance for their lives, their places taken by newer men. It is altogether unfair that this great national and patriotic duty should have to bo carried by the limited number now overseas. When one apreclates the facts of tin1 situation as stated by Mr. Mr-Curdy and as known to officers and men, ami some of our political leaders who have been overseas, the determined stand taken for conscription aa the only measure at all capable of meeting the requirements, can be understood. Thousands of Canadians at home have been reaping profits out ot the war from the enhanced prices which war conditions have made possible. On the other hand, thousands of others have had to make sacrifices in the way of paying these high prices for all commodities out of incomes no larger than they were itt ante-war days. But whether profiting or losing. It is our duty as a free and enlightened people to rise up and go to the help of our men who are at war. We have been deeply interested in the question of what Russia would do; would Russia desert its allies, go back on the alliance with Great Britain and France, or would the revivified Russian people rise up in their might, maintain their armies at the front and strike against their common enemy. They demonstrated on July 1st and succeeding days what is their purpose. Are we Canadians going to display any less honorable record to the world 1 than is being made by the new Rus-'sia? We are hrirs of the great prlv-I ileges of freedom and justice In the j British Empire. We have complete j local autonomy. Shall we exercise ; that in a manner which will reflect ' credit upon our country? Or shall ! we use our liberty in a manner in i which it was feared the Russian people would exercise their new liberty, to our discredit and eternal disgrace?

Would it impress you to know that i only two retail merchants were present at the Board of Trade meeting Thursday evening when matters affecting the vital interests of the community were dealt with?

Thursday evening's quite .a sum of money. Is it to be meeting of the Board of Trade, allowed to develop into a "white ele-; - phant'' THE SITUATION THAT WE MUST FACE. With our strongest endorsation, we publish the following editorial from the Saskatoon Pheonix, a strong Liberal journal. It expresses our views exactly, and we believe is in accord with the sentiment of all Canadians who fully appreciate the situation: W. E. Knowles, the member for Moose Jaw, is not inclined to exercise any fear so far as Quebec is concerned, yet he^is willing to give the province every chance and will support a referendum with that end in view. Quebec gives no indication, however, of a disposition to consider doing something substantial even if j left to itself to decide how. The pro-i vjnee has enlisted less than 10,000 French-Canadians in the C.B.F. If representative men like Sir' Wilfrid Laurier, Henri Bourassa, Rodolphe Lemleux and other leaders In church and state would come forward with a proposal to allow Quebec to provo What could be done by special voluntary effort, Canadians in the other provinces would be very slow to enforce conscription. But the French-Canadians hold back not merely because they do not want conscription; they are opposed to the entire war policy of Canada. What gain could follow delay for the sake of Quebec? Unless we get men into training sometime very soon they will not be available for service in the field this year. The argument made by J. H. Sinclair that our men will not be deserted for the roason that there are millions other allied troops at the front is not a creditable one. We have a Canadian army in the fisld. The point is, are we going to maintain that army or are we going to desert it and leave it to Great Britain, France and the United States to hold the lines and make the advances? The statement of fact by Mr, Mc-G.urdy was conclusive. It is somewhat surprising that the actual figures were given out, but. the under secretary of the department of mlli-! tin must have acted under permission front senior authority In doing mo. There were recently 62,000 infantry men in the four Canadian divisions. The figures indicate that our dlvlisons are below strength.

"Selfsacrifice, self-denial and service lie at the bash of the hi/'hexl personal and national detitbp-ment." Sir Thomas IVIiilc, Minister of Finance. S it nothing to you that men from all round you have sacrificed home and salary, safety and life, to defend your home as well as their ov/n ? Is it nothing to you lhat their wives and families tremblingly scan each casualty list, and pale at the step of the postman or telegraph messenger ? Can you see others giving their dearest, without feeling that you must do something yourself ? Do you wonder what to do ? You can at least save-and lend your savings to the nation. Canada needs every dollar her loyal sons and daughters can spare, to meet the growing expenses of the struggle. Every dollar, you invest in Canadian War Savings Certificates helps the nation to deal generously with those who arc defending you. Certificates in denominations of $25, $50 and $100, repayable in three years, may be purchased at any Bank or Money Order Post Office at $21.50, $43 and $86 respectively. This means over 5% interest-making them a profitable as well as a patriotic investment. � ' The National Service Board of Canada, OTTAWA. 2i 09 ;
