Buchanan John Terranct Uncaging Director Bus.'ncw Manager P.OUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The outstanding feature o! tf.o situation now is the renewed more extensive invasion of Russia the Teutonic forces, who are not o continuing Uielr operations in Galici are developing a new driv are Hie north-west of Warsaw, In Poland. tho well, While these operations are being ried on in great force by the G mans, the despatches state that Russians are holding their lines particularly north of Warsaw, and in the south are said to have routed Aiui Irian forces on the Dneister. Success has been attending the Al- lies in the Dardanelles to a certain extent. On other frontiers there is news of very little change. Negotiations for the, settlement nf the Welsh coal strike, which has an important (bearing on the supply of -fssi-fsr. the British navy, are being attended with little success thus far, hut Lloyd George's commission may be able to effect a settlement in a day or so. POLITICAL PLATFORMS IN MANITOBA There are very many good points in the platform outlined Dy the Conservatives of Manitoba, but they appear ridiculous when it is recollect- ed that a year ago these very same Conservatives were defending the Kaolin government and its adminis- tration, and backing up Sir' Rodmond Roblin in his opposition to the Pro- gressive policy of the Liberal party. Sir Rodmond and his followers ridi- culed -women suitrage, they defended .the patronage system and the spoils system, and they had no use for pro- hibition, and as for compulsory vot- ing, Sir Rodmond looked upon pro- positions of that--kind as .revolution- and as, Those, very Conservatives who sat in convention the other day and denounced Sir Rod- mond RoWin and his .administration followed him faithfully and enthusias- tically- in the attitude he took in 1914, and they would be following loyally today.U his corrupt administration in Manitoba had not been exposed to the light of day by the Liberal parts Long (before the commission was ap- pointed the Liberals had dence, to establish tie.-corru.pt char- acter of the administration of the Rdblln government, 'but in every case the investigations before the public accounts .committee of the Legisla- ture .were stifled by the Conservative majority, and there was not even a murmur raised by any Conservative in the province against the attitude of the men who represented the party in the Legislature The Conservatives who met in con- vention the other day may be in ear nest ra their intention to reform the party, Ibut the mass of opinion will conclude that their sudden conver sion to progressive principles and to abolition of the entire patronage sys- tem is inspired by a desire to clothe themselves in respectability more tnan anything else. Take for instance the Macdonald Liquor Act which this convention has gone on record to put into effect if the Conservative party is returned to power., This act was originally passed >o> a government headed Iby Sir Hugh John Macdonald; it was drafted by Sir James Alkens _Slr_Hugh John was not m power very long until he was succeeded by Sir Rodmond Roblin as prime minister Prom that time until the present the act has been shelved and no .attemp was :ever made to put it into effect Sir James Aikens, who is now leader of .the Conservative party in Man! toba, and who drafted this act, nevei protested against tne shelving and never urged upon the fldblin govern ment, publicly at any rate, that ad vanced1 temperance legislation shoul( be put into effect. He was one of th platform advocates of the Roblin'gov ernment when it appealed to the country in 1914. At this-convention also we find th Conservative party going -on recorc in favor of the abolition of the patron and bf.the spoils system These are two. good planks, fout how can ve expect them to be consistent jy enforced when we remember tha a C'onsemthe platform adopted to the Dominion of Canada prior to 191 advocated similar, neaaurw and now that' party hat been In power to four yean rind that the patronag system and tne spoils system, a more prevalent than ever before i Canadian, itatorj.
