Here threo differ- ent and very violent assaults have >een made against the French lines, I have evidently beeu checked. Thej German Crown Prince headed one otj the assaults and was repulsed. Silence still clouds any develop- ments that might be going forward lot for a supposedly saue per to offer. v There tra three prisoners of war confined In Rockwood Asylum nt Klngotou, ai a direct result ot tho continued confinement at Port Henry. Tho authorities have been requested sorerai times to allow tho prisoners ot war iii the fort to work somo- whefe, preferably on the roads, but the Mlulster of Militia has refused to consider this because it would in- terfere with local labor. There ought to be sojiw method arranged to util- ize this labor at all detention camps. The inonoy that is being spent on the maintenance ot these men is being wasted, and Canada is not in a posi- tion to waste money these days. .on the eastern front. There do n 'appear to have been any actions of .'importance there within the past Veek or two. It is said that German engineers engaged in strengthening the for- 'tificatlons of Constantinople in pre- paration for an expected early siege. Sweden has sent a strung protest to 'Britain, said to be supported by Nor- Sray and Denmark, against continued iraolestation of Swedish commerce. President Wilson is still engaged in a study of the situation arising from 'the German reply to bis latest note, and there is as yet no Intimation as .'to what further action he will take towards properly impressing upon Germany the importance of protect- American neutral rights on the 'seas. OUR POINT OF VIEW i Robert Robinson of Edmonton en- listed in the 66th Battalion at Bdmon- i ton as an example to his four sons, !who hare not yet responded. There is the right fighting spirit in this but the boys don't seem to have inherited it. Maybe they will be shamed into enlisting.

He is likely sorry he did not Ket the summons at the same time as Simpson, an'd then he could have missed the summons to give evidence abojrt maladministration of the pub- lie works department in Manitoba. By the way, it is a long while since the doctor practised medicine. Pro- ;bably he is sorry he did not remain ,in his profession. "Does Hon. J. A. Lougheed, the act- Ins Minister of .Militia, invite Canad- iaus to pass ro.und the hat for the purchase oi machine guns in order that a thrifty government may be able to reserve the proceeds of war taxation for the payment of commis- sions to the patriotic purchasers of war supplies? "Individual 'liberality should not be taxed lo buy machine guns or oth- er implements of war for a rich coun- try. The affluence of Canada per- mits .the National government to de- vote a portion of the war revenue to such uses as the payment .of 10 per cent- commissions to patrlotis who receive a beggarly plus expenses for the sacrifice and self- immolation involved in the purchase of worth of binoculars for this Buffering country. Every dollar that .comes In volun- tary contributions from the pockets of individual Canadians should carry comfort to the soldiers at the front, or to the parents, wives and 'children the soldiers leave behind them. This government is not so frugal In its ex- penditures that it can fairly ask Can- adians to take the money out of their own pockets tc buy machine guns for :he nation." This expression of opinion is from the Toronto Telegram, a Conserva- tive paper. .What it says is perfectly true. The government of Canada ought to be able to equip the forces going .i: t'-.-v front.

Dr. Stanley "Mr. Vvootf and are being ited said -Dr. 'Stanley, "as rare ami curious specimens ol poli- ticians, who are not supposed to have opinions on any subject, par- ticularly moral subjects, but who have rdtched that point where we vote regardless ot party- poli- tics." .Militarism and alcoholism, said the doctor, 'were the two great questions filling the minds of the world today. The British were lighting today that the militarism oi Germany would be crushed. Britons would rather die a hundred deaths than submit to the militarism oi Germany.

"The wave of prohibition is sweep- ing over the world. In Russia vodka has been prohibited, and the effici- ency of the people has increased "10 per cent. In France absinthe has been prohibited. In England 1 am sorry to say the liquor traffic has got such a hold that the statesmen have been unable to root it up at once. Prohibition is the only thing that Kitchener has asked ior that he has not been given. Roberts asked ior it. Admiral Jellicoe wants it." Dr. Stanley went on to speak of the wave of prohibition in Canada. Prince Edward Island was dry, Nova Scotia was dry, save Halifax. New Brunswick was two-thirds dry. In Quebec half the parishes were dry. Must Get Prohibition In Ontario he predicted that the good old Conservative government would not dare to face another elec- tion without a policy oi total pro- hibition. In Manitoba the Norris government had come 'into power practically com- mitted to prohibition. Saskatchewan! went dry on July 1st. Alberta, he, hoped, wouiri go dry on July 21st..
