Your King and Country Need You Right Nowl THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The alarming state of affairs In Russia, particularly in the forces at the frout, is holding the attention of the �world at present, and all eyes are on Kerensky, in whom confidence is supreme that he will be able to save the situation as ho has done before, and turn back the Insurgent troops to face again^ the Teutons and stop their advance. Since tho recurrence of disaffection in tho Russian ranks, the Tou-toua have been able to take back all the territory -won in the recent offen-aive, and to seriously threaton the entire Russian front. Tarnapol, Stanls-lau and Hallcx have all been again abandoned by the Russians. On the west front there are indications of the commencement of a big drivo by the British. Artillery fire has been heavy along tho entire front. The French have again driven back heavy attacks by the Crown Prince's army -which are being made evidently tor political effect at home, but which are accomplishing nothing more than tho loss of a huge number of Germans. Operations in Palestine are proceeding favorably for the allies. THE REAL FUNCTION OF COLD STORAGE PLANTS. After the successful offensive of the high cost of living commissioner the eastern cold storage companies are counter-attacking vigorously, says an exchange. But they are fighting for a losing cause, with all the advantages against them. The commissioner has public opinion and every reasonable argument on his side. There Is not the least doubt that cold storage is responsible to a large extent for the great increases in the prices of every day necessities of the table, like milk, butter, eggs, meat, fish, potatoes and many other articles. Cold storage facilities make it possible for these articles to be hoarded up until en artificial scarcity is created, when the price Is raised. Tho cold storage Idea was intended to lower the cost of food by preserving; perishable articles from times ot abundance to times of scarcity. It was not meant to be a means of raising prices to -famine rates. The cold storage companies may protest against Mr. O'Connor's report but they cannot deny that they have wrongfully used their facilities to increase, prices until a majority of the people cannot buy enough food. Prices have more than doubled within a few years though Canada 1b a country that produces tar more food than it needs and has a large surplus for export. Something should be done at once to regulate prices by limiting the time foodstuffs may be held in cold storage, or by fixing prices of the commoner articles of diet, which could be done without subjecting the trading community to any material hardship. Food prices are still rising and something must be done to check the . undue advances. It ia remarkable that the people, in whom are vested according to the theory of democracy all the powers of the state, are apparently so helpless to prevent a few food monopolists from starving: them. The people appear to be in peonage to the food speculators. Ir. the book of Proverbs, written three thousand yearB ago, we find this aphorism: "The rich rnleth ver the poor and the borrower is servant to the lender." It seems to be a true today as It always was. But the millionaire monopolists must not be allowed to multiply their profits any further. They have done bo in the past because the government has not Interfered with them. Tho government has the power to deal with them and it must qxereise its authority. Ontario Liberals In Toronto last week, j And it goes on to say: K, This remains to bo seen; but if this could be done in Toronto it will vnry likely bo tried in tho Manitoba cntf-tal. Still, It makes very little difference whether ho is there endorsel or not. Call themselves what thoy may, there can be but two parties in this fight: one directed by Sir Robort Bordon, the other by Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Behind the latter Western Liberalism is- lined up. Those that are not for Borden are for Laurtor. Tho Moose Jaw Nows is pursuing Just the tactics one might expect from :--o violently partisan a paper. Western conscriptionlst Liberals are very unlikely to line up behind Sir Wilfrid Laurier. They are heartily in favor of conscription; nnd they want to seo It enforced by a conscriptionlst government that is not afraid to throw ALL of Canada's resources into the war. wealth as well as men. The present government is not firmly enough seated In the saddle. It. seems, to go ahead, undeterred by tho threats of big interests in the east. Tho election opens up a way to the formation of a win-the-war government that will not be nfrald to get out of the rut, that will not have one eye fixed on political expediency, and that will have tho confidence of the people of Canada who are in favor of the Dominion doing her utmost to help win the war for democracy. The statement of the Daily News, that he who is not for Borden is for Laurier, is designed as a trouble mak er. There are thousands of Liberals who- favor Borden's conscription policy who are not in favor of his persistence in keeping Bob Rogers at his elbow, or who do not favor his alliance with Quebec Nationalists of the Laverge stripe. But if he will shako off tho shackles of partylsm which bind him, these Liberals are ready to join with him for tho duration of the war htat Canada might put her whole resources at the dis-democracy. Premier Borden has no right to expect more from Western Liberals. But he has a right to expect that much, and we will bo very much disappointed if the western wing of tho Liberal party at the Winnipeg convention, doos not pave the way for Premier Borden to seek some kind of union so that -when the election is held conscriptionists throughout the length and breadth of Canada will be able to present an united front. It will be well for Canada it this results. And it will be much more likely to result if papers like the Moose Jaw News will forget their violent partisanship for a while, just as those Liberals who voted with Sir Robort Borden on the conscription measure threw party ties to the winds for the sake of Canada.

THE POLICY FOR WESTERN LIBERALS. j Because the wish is father to the thought, the Moose Jaw News, vestige of Conservative Journalism in the province of Saskatchewan, says ,that the Liberalism of Laurier will ftmtf likely be endorsed at the contention of Western Liberals in Winnipeg next month.
