V The cro\vn prince's great German otfensive Having failed, he is now trying to "makc good" at home by carrying jout a minor success, and tor this purpose is struggling bn against the American and i'Vench lines.

With the new Hun oftptisiv^ in France occupying the public eye, wo are likely to overlook the situation on the Italian front and fronts. But the possibilities there arc great On the Albanian front, whore an advance of more than '2o miles has been made over a wide front. It Is pointed out that the moral effect �f the advance will be on the .lugo-elovs who are now on the point of open revolt against the Austro-Huu-garian gpvernment. A further advance | would react seriously .igainst the dual monarchy,"at the same time heartening the Serbian and Montenegrin armies.  On the Italian front the mala question is whether or not the Austrians will attempt another offensive. It Is generally conceded that Italy will be content to hold the line until General-leslmo Foch Is ready to take the in-�iria:^ive on all fronts which will likely be next spring. The possibility of another Austrian offensive la discussed by the military experV of the Xow York Times, who says: / Rumor is rite on the Italian front, where repgrt has it, that a new offensive Is about to be launched by the -^PICKED UP IN * PASSINCm "^^^ ^ Kx-Ald.

Germans and Austrians in conjunction, the attack coming this time on the mountaiin front, presumably along the Adige river. It is surprising that this was not the first front selected by tho Austrians for their great effort. If trict. of the recent order-ln-councir successful here, it would be entirely Inmaterial what measures the Italiaas making it necessary that those men apparently of class one of the mlli#| tary service act, carry papers to prove that they are not liable for service In this class. The letter ot the law in this regard iB exceedingly drastic, and is aimed at the slacker land deserter and others who are doing their best to evade the �orVico act. Drastic orders are Justl-Xled to deal with, these men, for the upremb need of the nation at the jiresent time Is men for the battle-tiont'ThS order-in-councll goes so far as to provide that officers of the Do^ minion Police have the right to demand the production of the necessary papers fcy any man apparently of class one, no matter where the man may be at the time, whether in his workshop oi: on the streets. The order further provides that any man found not carrying the necessary papers be forthwith removed to the headquarters of the depot battalion of the particular district and turned over to thoinllltla authorities without bail,' until his" right to exemption Is estab-llBhed. B^en after .being released he may be proceeded against by the � anthorltles for not carrying the necee-ary papers. All this Is proTlded by the order-ln-council hut no sensible person will deny that Its.fulfUlment to the letter would place an intolerable burden upon the pef)ple. But there is something to be said on'the other aide. There Is no excuse for any man to be without his pr Mame once more be tho stumbling block of Kaiser Bljl hopes?

The trade must be even. The services miist be'mutual. So, the picture you are looking at Now should be true from both ends. If it doesn't quite suit you this way, tufh the paper around.
