TH^ PROGRESS OF THE WAR. The oncircllns niovemeni of the allied forces has placed the Germans in a tight corner In the Soissons-Rheims tlon so far as war activity la concerned. And In Canada we liave some, which, if they are nothing worse, are patriotic in an Ico-water sort of way. They may not think so hut they arc doing Just what Germany would iiiiy thorn for doing-Ihoy aro critioizhii; the Govcriiniont on petty grounds, they are continually throwing out suggestions that tho Government is taking unconstitutional moans for securing soldiers under tlie Military Service Act, t;;ul*they arc taking ovory opportunlty to tell tho farmers that JC.L'O isn't enough for tliclr wheat. It ii! Just such insidious stuff lliat the German propagandists aro exports in handling, and we are sure that Kaiser Bin would like to hand out a few iron crosses to his newspaper friends in Canada. Tho newspaper situation in tho States created by tho New York Mai! and Hearst papers is discussed thus by the Winnipeg Free Press: Tho extremely effective campaign which is being oarridd on, chiefly by the -Xew York Tribune, against tho Hearst "newspapers for llieir pro-Germanism has been helped along by two recent ocoirrences. German propaganda carried on over the Fi-enoh and American lines in France with tho aid of balloons has included lately literature in which-Hearst's attitude is cited as evidence that the people of the United States are not united in their supjport of the war. -* PICKED UPJNj^ PASSING ^^^^ eector, and their eventual evacuation | x;.,tiiraiiy much is being ma':'.o of this o� this entire salient is believed to \ recognition by the Germans of Hearst he contemplated by them now. They are even said to bo making preparations for the general retreat by destroying all their supplies they cannot take with them. British forces have entered Into the strug-slo on this front now, and aro fighting in from the west, with great success. They have been engaged In some fierce struggles north of tho Mame. The French and Americans continue their advance beyond Chateau-Thierry. * DO'rJ'T OVERCHARGE THE VISITORS. Wo have heard murmurings from visitors to the Medicine Hat fair and stampede that excessive prices -were charged by tho hotels and reetauranta there again thls.j'ear. We 4o not know whether the report Is true, but we mention It as a basis of an appeal tj our" local hotel keepers and restaur-anteurs to retrain from such tactics. �Wo do not believe such an appeal is necessary. Nevertheless it Is well to point out-that there ia nothing'vlslt--| era in a city resent more than the appearance of being held up for high prices. It. is a Mack eye to the city, and from what we have heard o� the JletJicine Hat stampede this year we believe the attendance was affected bythe fact that the thousands who visited the city last year did not come a-way with a veo' vrann spot In their hearts for the city and high charges -were responsible. We want our visitors to come back again. Treat them well while they are, in the city thla -week. as their friend. Even more etCectivo is the record of parallels between the editorial declarations of the Hearst papers and the N"ew York Maif during the past three years which has been established by quotations. So consistently did these papers support one another in making difficulties for the U.S. Government and giving Germany sympathy and encouragement that a fairly plausible case in support of a theory of common control could be made out. The explanation of the Mail's attitude has now been revealed. When this paper changed hands three years ago its actual purchaser was the Imperial Government of Germany; and until the authorities intervened two ,weeks ago it was being edited un-domy. Gojmnlssioner Meech will no doubt iear this in mind and," If the truck do�j not prove np after a fair trial, It to bo expected that he �will not ooneinuo to use It. Paris, July 22.-(Havas Agency.)- All the military criU'cs of the newspapers, after careful examination of the tactical position and ihe strategical situation, have come to the conclusion that whatever happens now, the allied counter offensive le a new and great victory ot the Marne. The difficulties with which the enemy is struggling are pointed out by the Petit Parlslen, which appends this comment: "The enemy -who boasted that he would capture Chalons In two days, is now congratulating himself on his ability to defend himself as a great victory. Between the dream o� a break-up ot tho French army, and tho breaking up of one's own army, In front of the French, there Is a difference that perhaps the German people will perecive. The truth ie that the military balance, -which since March 21, has leaned to the side of the Central Powers, has forcibly s\\-ung to tho side of the allies since July 15." Premier Cleraenceau's newspaper, Le Homme Libre, declares that beyond everything "It is our infantry- pollus and the allied troops to whom must go our gratitude. "But," adds the newspaper, "the victory la also due to the fact that we have been able to bring our forces under a single roommaud.
