THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Fighting lias increased in Intensity along the French front within the past few day.-', and victories have been recorded by both sides. The Germans have gained ground along the Soissons front while tho French In heavy attacks havo mad" ndvauces on Hi" Meuse. The B tish, attacking near Monchy, havo ga.ned further ground *nd have taken prisoners. The Russians continue their offensive and in connection with this it is Interesting to note that the Rumanians are beginning to bestir themselves, and that activity ia once more reported along this front. Speculation is now rife as to what the Germans will do to hold their fronts when n combined offensive on Russian, Rumanian. Macedonian and western fronts is commenced. tho war, mid by which all agricultural, industrial, transportation and natlotnl resources of Canada will be organized so as to Insure tho greatest possible assistance to the empire and the war! and to reduce the cost of living to tho Canadian people." Surely the proposal called for by Mr. Graham's nmendment deserved more consideration than it received from (he government. It was waived aside with a brush of tlte hand Granted that men are the first re-i|uis!te today, surely money to pay the expenses of tho war come next. England accompanied conscription of men with a nionsure of conscription of wealth and with control of living prices, which made conscription of men palatable. The Borden government seems to be afraid to do this. It seems to be in deadly fear of the monied interests, who probably have more at stake in this war than anyone else. If an election will result in the formation of a government that Is not afraid to take drastic measures for the mobilization of ALL our resources, then it Is well that there should bo an election. Let us hope tlut such will le tho result of the impending appeal *o the people. PICKED UP IN per cent, given tho manufacturers tinder- the guise of raising money to pay tie cost of the war. There are few men in Canada who were rich before the war who are not richer today because of the war which enabled them to increase their profits. Why this should be allowed is what the jnass of the people want to know. ;Why there should be conscription of men without a simultaneous effort to reach those who are waxing fat off the war is what people would like to know. We are In favor of conscription of men because more men are needed to reinforce our armies at the front, but if the conscripted men serve by bearing arms why should not the manufacturers, millers, cold storage kings and others serve by contributing largely of their wealth? The government does not seem to sense the popular demand in this direction. We are put off with promises that more stringent taxation will bo' Inflicted. But nothing is done. There j hasn't been a single thing done yet to make the cost of living any cheap-1 er or to control tho profits of those whose wealth puts them in a position to dictate prices. When an opportunity is given for the government to declare itself on a policy of mobilization of our industries and wealth for the winning of the war, as was the caae on tho Graham amendment, it I t Shows its hand and the amendment * U defeated. Mr. Graham's amendment moved Chat "the consideration of the term fit aaid resolution should be deterred atll the government bring before par-ament measures providing that those eat able to pay will be asked to con rikute their full share to the cost of which history will look back as one of the turning points of civilization, and that underlying the aims of the contending nations is the cause of liberty, they will realize that the supreme opportunity has arrived. They will see that the tide is at the flood, and that if Canada holds back now the nation is not fitted for the greatness which, by the valor of her heroic dead, should be her's. "If Canadians can only be brought to appreciate the opportunity offered to rise to the height of their duty there should be no difficulty in persuading tho nation to accept whatever legislation may be necessary to bring in conscription. "The injustice of voluntary enlistment, where the objects of the war are national and are for national benefit, is surely plain. If only each individual citizen could bo convinced of the magnitude of the events now tak-I ing place tho nation would not hesi-j tate." For the first time in Canada's history the whole nation is compelled, by the facts of the war, to face the fundamental issue of the nation's life or deaiii. The question is immeasurably greater than waB raised by the South African war, or by any other question in Canada's history. This is no party issue. It is no class struggle. For Canada as a nation it is life or it is death. For civilization itself, for human freedom, for everything worth while in life as Canadians know it, the alternative is: "Win the war, and live! Lose the war, and perish!" When that issue was made plain as the meaning of tho war, and as its moaning for Canada, the Globe, like many thousands of the Globe's readers saw the war as Canadians at tho front see it today. It is not a question for some Canadians. It la THE question for ALL Canadians. . Every Canadian is drafted for the fullest servico he can render best. If that service is Military: let the fittest men of military ago bo drafted, and bo drafted now. If that servico is Industrial: lot the captuinB of Industry organize tho whole industrial service, and put our workers in Canada, our women and our men, whore their nervlce will count for most at tho front of battle. And lot there bo no favoritism and no partlsan-hhlp. Jf that servico iB Financial: let our whole money power be conscripted, or. if the word is simpler, taxed, as industry is taxed, .is lives are taxed. And let the man or the corporation that makes millions out of war conditions be taxed back to honest poverty. Let every citizen in Canada bo given the chance to see the war as Canadians see it at the front. In the present crisis, tho spot where we now serve is for us the front. The service we now render,-where we stand, for us is war service: That is what Canadian democracy means, alike in France and in Canada.
