It will not be a good thing for the] country or for the young man's Ideal-1 ism if, when ho comes back broken I from the war, he finds the nation i comfortably controlled by a troop of! war millionaires who hnvn stayed [ simply nt home and transmuted the land's necessity into gold.

Nevertheless, the submarine situation is realized by the allies to be tho only real menace they have to combat In the war against Germany now. ' and that they must bend every effort towards its solution. The Germans have gained more than a little ground in their counter-offensive against the Russians, made successful by disaffection in certain Russian rebel regiments. However, active work by tho artillery units is stopping further German progress now. The Germans have been able to gain slight advantage in their bitter attacks Jong the western front. The French have repulsed practically all of these attacks, inflicting terrible losses on the Germans. Everywhere else German attempts have failed utterly. Canadian artillery is increasing its activity against Lens, and will pave the way for a further advance by the troops shortly. The advance last week led the Canadians to within 1500 yards of the centre of the city. A NEW INDEPENDENCE IN CANADIAN POLITICS. Canadian politics arc in a turmoil. Talk of union government, members breaking nwny from the old party lines, a sort of western independence among' the western members, marks what may bo a new epoch in Canadian history. How the new movement is regarded by an eastern journal may be gathered from tho following which appeared in a recent issue of the Canadian Courier: We are warned that on August 7 and S there will be a lingo now-Liberal convention in Winnipeg.

McCallum and his associates on the Dominion Research Council- busily engaged in taking an Inventory of Canada's natural resources, and making a scientific investigation as to how best those resources may be adapted and developed to help Canada pay her war debt when peace shall have been declared. We shall have need of our vast resources then, and it will be well if we can so co-ordinate them that they may be used to the best advantage, and with the least waste. One problem alone which is engaging the attention of the experts of the council may be far-reaching in its j possibilities. That is the utilization' of our wheat and flax straw. With i our climate, the need of wheat straw for our livestock industry is not so great as it is in the east. Millions of tons of wheat straw are burned every year by western farmers. Surely this is a barbarous waste. But it the application of science will �how our farmers a practical way for converting the surplus wheat straw into gas for heating and lighting their homes how great would bo the national saving effected. Efforts have been made for years to develop a plan lor turning our flax straw to account. It may be that the Hew council of research will find the needed plan. There is a great outlook in ihe task taken up. by the council of which l)r. McCallum is head. May they succeed in their truly patriotic work. transportation and no-dictation from j Ottawa. We bt-iieve the West has a i country-wide point of view. The eternally grouchy Westerner is as. much out of dote as the parochial patriot of any other color. This couu-1 try is not divided eternally by the j Ottawa; neither is it to be divided by J Algoma. We believe that the centre | of political gravity is slowly-perhaps not very slowly-shifting westward. The convention in August will be one of the means of determining its westward shift. The country is interested in this congress, in no way as a phase of party politics. And whatever it is it will get down to something bearing a near resemblance to brass taclts. Conversely there has been considerable talk of late about a legislative union of the Maritime provinces. In the legislature of New Brunswick, a progressive Conservative, Baxter, the ex-attorney-general, proposed a resolution to that effect not long ago.,The House passed it without any signs of a party vote. Whatever does or does ! not come of it. this resolution endured by New Brunswick Is along the , right line of organization. If the ' West is going to organize as a unit, ; why should the Ea3t fail to do so? There are benefits to be ^ot from a closer organization. There are pro-pressives in the far East; plenty of them in both parties. Party politics run high on the Atlantic. We believe they do not run so high as patriotic regard for the welfare of Canada. The speech of Carvell, of Carieton, an conscription, was as Canadian and as courageous as that of Michael Clark, from Red Deer. Carieton County is 3,000 miles from Red Deer. The sentiment was the same. Both men are Liberals. Both are of the new order of things. We believe there are plenty of men of both parties in the Eest as radical as Car-veil or Michael Clark. And a closer organization of the forces along the Atlantic that make for the welfare of new Canada is just as necessary in the East as is the convention in the West. This country is marching along. Sometime after the war is over we may find that its pace will be much swifter than it was even in the decade 1903-13. And the Maritime provinces have as much to do with that pace is the provinces west of the great lakes. P. K. Hambly, classical master to the Brockville Collegiate Institute, wild was reappointed at an increased salary for the ensuing year, has resigned and enlisted to go abroad on active service. Sir James Lougheed, president of the military hospitals commission, has appointed Mrs. Arthur Van Koughnet as honorary superintendent of comforts for the military hospitals commission in military district 1, 2 and 3. The strike at Vancouver of deck and fire room employees of tho Canadian Pacific, Grand Trunk Pacific and other Canadian steamers for an in-; crease of 20 per cent, in wages has1 been ended by a concession of a; smaller increase in a few days and the old schedule of sailings will be resumed after an interruption of three weeks because of the strike. !

NIVEN BROS. 218 First Ave- S. Phone 1732 I Is there any reason, now that a maximum wheat price has been fixed, why a maximum price on flour should not also be fixed? THE WAR PROFITEER AND THE SOLDIER. We are told sometimes that the talk of "conscription of wealth," is all bunkum, that the expression is a glib one which has no meaning. The agents and organs of tho interests tell us it is impossible. Sir George Foster Intimates that wealth Is paying every cent it can to the expenses f the war. But until we have some assurance that Canada is endeavoring, to do as Great Britain is doing and as the U.S. aims to do,-paying a large percentage of our war debt out of current extra taxes-there will be a popular demand for the application of the principle intended in the term "conscription of wealth." There is no need trying to delude the people that It is being done. Thero is no use trying to let the papular demand go unheeded. As the Calgary Albertan says, the young man who goes to France with the amy may be moved by patriotism, or love of adventure, cr blighted affection, or may be going �imply because he was drafted,. but be certainly is not going with any Idea of making money. A great variety of things may happen to him, but f udden enrichment Is not one of them. Sir George Foster refused as unpatriotic the offer of $1.70 per bushel made by western farmers for this year's wheat crop. After many months' delay and high speculative prices, a maximum of $2.40 is fixed. Sir George's idle talk of lack of patriotism didn't get him or the consumer very much, though to tell the truth, considering the present prospects, $2.40 per bushel won't be considered too high by the farmers.

The fulfilment of this purpose lies in the word " laminated." Lamination is a quality-giving process that marks the line between the best tubes and substitutes. For we take the best rubber and roll it out tissue-thin for inspection eliminating all sand holes and air bubbles. Then we build up, layer on layer, an extra thick, extra good tube. To finish with we vulcanize in the valve patch, instead of sticking it on. A costly process-yes. A cost that we pay.
