The Germans have a'iready taken (AVindau, and are advancing on Riga, the seaport on the Baltic, which is the main point of supplies for the Russians. The capture of ibis would bi s. ssricus ihing for them. The evacuation of Warsaw is still proba- ble, although the drive on the capital itself appears ti> have somewhat slackened. There is no indication of the situa- tion in the other theatres of the war. English papers are crying out that the British Mockade does not seem to hire been effective in checking of cotton and foodstuffs for Germany, via Sweden and other neu- tral countries. It Is stated that Germany is to for- ward an ultimatum to Roumania, de- manding passage for war munitions through her country to Turkey. Rou mania may be in the sooner than expected. GIVE THE ACT A FAIR TEST Alberta has spoken in no uncer- tain voice. Clearly and emphatically the electors have declared themselves in favor; of prohibition. So pro- nounced ,is. the position taken that the "Wets" must yield without fur- ther protest to the will of the pfio Attempts to quash, the election, or any effort; to unset the will of the people will be useless.
