THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. i Tho initiative on the western front is now entirely in the hands ot the allied forces, once more evidence of the great genius of General Poch. It will T)e several months, it Is believed, betorb the Germans will be able to resume the offensive on any scale. Tho Briti.'!h, French and Americans continue to hammer away at the German lines niorth of the Mamo, and to hare made further cdv.inces. The total of prisoners has been augmented by "1500 more talien by the Fronch In tho past two or three days. asricuituro, and as lookine too much , to taf'ift'protection, ho recognizes I Jrankly many Rood points in it-es-' pocially its effort nt interchange of -Western and F.atitorn opinion. "We certainly want tho kind ot education that, will be provided by tho proposed e'rtchanginff of student.'; between Ontario and- Quebec, and between Munilobrt and the K.i.'st, but iho prosrani might well bo further ox-tended in these ,directions.

We need inoro communic.v fi'iu lines betwo-'n city oilucatinn nn.l the fanners. 0;u' men at tho front arc fighting for a brighter future tor tlie whole hum;\n r.ico. For tho lovo of all that is good and truo let us back up their efforts by wise consideration ot Canada's part in the reconstruction pi our thought and work. 'Wo have grown to solidarity as a nation in war; our need now is to get ready to be solid with each other, �East and West, in peace." THE OPPORTUNITY OF THE CANADIAN EDITORS. Discussing tho overseas visit of Canadian editors, which has given certain other editors not Included in the list sOraethins to write .about, the Calgary Albertan points out that no Canadians who aro now in Brl-tiah politics have" ever interpreted Canada to Britain, first because their Interests do not lie in that direction, and second because personally they , are incapable of performing such a j eervice, being Canadians in name only, and for the most part, merely ad.venturers in Canadian affairs. Canadian newspapermen, being of Canadian fibre and perfectly informed; ot .Canadian opinion, are iq a position to give splendid service in this way. It remains to be seen ^vhether they will grasp the unique opportunity. _0n the other hand, these visitors to Great Britain have an unequalled opportunity to study social and commercial questions in Britain at first AN ENGLISH VIEW >OF AMERICA'S EFFORT. If tho Americans seem a little bit inclined to brag about their accomplishments in this war, don't blame them'for it. Giro them praiso That is the view taken by A. Maurice Low, an EJngHsh newspaperman who has lived tor twenty years in Washington, who writee of America's war effort "as an Englishman sees 'it," ^n the July issue of the North American Review. His aim was to review America's' contribution to the prosecution of the war during the first twelve months of her participation as a belligerent, and to provide an antl-dotp for the pessimism which found voice In many sections of the United States last spring, though recent events have drowned the note of humiliation which was In April and May to bo discerned even in tho utterances of men like Col. Roosevelt and Senator Lodge. .Mr. Low admits that a few months ago there was some disappointment even in Britain and France, who feared that the United Stales had failed to profit by the blunders of the older nations during the early stages o: the war. But so tar as he-can discern the Untied Statea has not made \ery many avoidable errors. "Mistakes have been made," he says; "certain things have been done which ought not to have been done, and things ' have been left undone which ought to hava been dona,, and the -blunders ot my .own countrymen have bean, re-,| peated by yours, but a nation, like an ! iwlividual, does not learn from tlie ] experience of others, but cnly from i Its' own eiperience, for which it usually pays dearly." He points out, however, that the United States did avoid many ot Brl- ; tain's early blunders, which " were -^PICKED UP IN'* PASSING '^"B BVSY MAM hand, and to hring hack an invaluable land of information of recent devel-! chiefly attributable to the motto oi^menta along the lines of health, education and'- new methods in industry. It is nothing for them to paint glowing pictures of hattlofielda and munition factories, of which every returned -man has a more vivid impression than they can -hope to get. But it will meain m,uch if they can �bring back information ot Dr. Addison's scheme for the nationalization ot' health, ot the -moat recent devel-op'mantis In education, ot tho details ot the housing reform schemes throughout Great Britain, ot the permanent aspects ot the changing econ-oinic position of women, etc. Of all these things we have had only superfl-clal infonnatlon, the pressure of the immediate war news having left llttlo Topm for details of these secondary matters in current newspapers and pariodicala. We await with Impat-1 t^n years was not unreasonable. "Business as Usual" adopted at the outset of the war. Clinging to this shibboleth Great Britain dallied with conscription, spent money foolishly, and failed to grapple with the food question, because of the unworthy fear that to alter the accepted customs of the people would be an admission of weakness and an encouragement to \ Germany. Time, ot course, taught the British people wisdom, but in iliese matters the United States made no Initial errors, and the government at once proceeded to adopt con.icriu-tlon and to put the country on a war basis. To Mr. Low, Germany's belb!!, a year or .Tipre ago, that the Util-sd States .:oulri make no effective iniil-t^ contribution toward the winning of tho war -tor a period o^ fi/e or iBnce the return ot the Canadian edl-^ Germany knew, from her own experi- tojs, with news ot these thlngrs which wa are vitally interested. ,THE FARMER AND THE MANUFACTURERS Canadian Finance has the following to say; .Tha West has no more doughty champion than G. R. Mamoch, president of tho ' Lotlibrjdgo board of trade. Particularly motoworthy, therefore, is hia oxprasaed attitude on t]ie mattern tit eastern industrial development and outriook-an attitude %^,hJch he freely admits has tmdergone, some change as a reault ot his recent vj^lt to Eastern manufacturing centres while attending the Oltixwa war loan conference. He. strongly expres-Be� the view that it was a mistake for �Westerners to align thenwelves as a taritt^or school ot economic opinion against the East as a manufacturing (school. Co-ordination and co-operation-give-and-take, too-are . necessary for tho upbuilding ot a prosperous Canada. While still holding to hlR old vl�w that the present tariff wall i� "rtcketty" because "n�Ter btaUt on any scientific "foundation," Kft',; deprecates certain Westorn do-n$ndB tor its sudden and completo 4ci;9>olltion. "We have as a nation," hgi iromarkefl to Canadian Finance, fmidertalcen heavy financial respon-�niiiltiea, and ^ the piost careful and cpBaldored judgment ot our nation's "b'islness' la palled -for." He believes t^t the "moderates" In tho j camps Oiaarmere and nianutaoturers can get � tifiatlther.^and the Ulgh.tarift extrem-Jsjp^ aro by no means representative priBitatqru. iJauufai^urlflg.and' �rfiiftn-olftV^ Wreata; While cyltlclzini^ Tthel progr(�m ot tho CanadJau Industrial � Reijorfntructlon Association in '� once, how long it had taken her to prepare, and not without justice assumed  that A-merlca could.. not accomplish In a brief-space what with her had been so lengthy a preparation. "For the last two years," says Mr. Low, "Americans have been talking alDbut the yronderful efficiency of Germany anti bemoaning their own inBfllclency,' � reproaching theniselvo's for not having ^patterned aftier German example. What it has taken Germany forty years to do, what for forty years has been the life ot C^Tr many, thought on which her pooplQ have centred, the Idea around which all Germany has revolved, America will have done in two ynars. This may seem an exaggerated statement, but it la nevertheless true. A year honco the United States will, If necessary, have a larger array In tho field than Germany had at tho begiij-ning of the war. A year hence tho American navy will be more powerful than the. German navy." Tho greatest ot Ambrlja's mistakes, in Mr. Low's oyos, has been a failure to realijo the real uses ot publicity, Americana have copied from the British tho vice of tolling thoiiiselves what inQompelenta they aro and what doddering idiots thoy have beconlo.
