THE PROGRESS OF THE war. " The Germans are concentrating their efforts now on rescuing their fleeing army from the northern end of the Sotssons-Rhelms salient, their resistance at the southern end having been reduced to a mere shell, os the dispatches today state. The allied advance during the past two or throe days has netted four miles. They are continuing their successes, at-though meeting now with moie stubborn resistance, as the result of the reinforcements rushed to the aid of the crovm prince by Rnpprecht of Bavaria. ;The Germans, as a result of the Russian defection, have been able to place 130 divisions on the' western front since the beginning of the -war, according to today's dispatches. the trouble with canada's l-and policy. After an extensive investigation the Great War Veterans x>t Saskatchewan have come to the conclusion that no 1915 and 1916 ^and 1917, with a ninth of Its territory stolen, and more than half of Its manhood killed or crippled and all of its womankind boroaveii and saddened, and ita children orphaned or Impovorlshod-tliat FV.inco still fights on with heroic joy of baltlo -'What o:ccep(lon can he find that France car. bo mado to listen to poaco tarms b.v another weakened German offoncive? After the Mnrne, and after the d.irk hours 01" Inst March, what force and foat of Prussian arms can give tlio kaiser hope of victory? Ru.'sla's collapse only deepened the allied will to further fighting. narrow cecjipo from irrotrlevnblo disaster only heightened the heroic purpose of its people, Britain's dreadful losses nt the Dardanelles, In Fmnce, in Flanders, in distant Asia, have hut intensified the heroic purpose of its sons and daughters. France, Belgium, Britain and Italy have passed through a long night of darkness and horror, and their souls are uuconquercd and uuconqut-ralilu. They now behold with joy unbounded the rise of a western star, of the first magnitude and refulgence, bidding thora fight on with stout hearts and unshaken resolution; and even as that great star is rising in the west the blessed signs of dawa are painted in God's heavens. We are matching Prussian militarism in guns. In airships and in numbers of fighting forces. We are more than matching the enemy in the.gonlus of generalship. But beyond these we have the higher exaltation that goes vrith a just cause and the unbreakable spirit that has t^ced four years of defeat and seeming disaster. Hasten, then, embittered prince of Hohenzollern, to make such terms as yet may be possible with an avenging Nemesis, for your philosophy is false, your cause is lost, your crimes are . gigantic, and God in his heaven has set hia great day of retribution. � 2 THURSDAY, jijLY 25, 1918 PICKED UP IN-* PASSING nn TUB Bvsr MAM Mrs. Annio Beatty, aged 109, don's oldest resident, is dead. Lon- ROUMAliJIA'S LOST OPPORTUNITY. History teems with Instances of mil-sane and permanent agricultural de-:itary disasters and lost opportunities velopment policy can be carried out that falls short, of the expropriation of huge tracts of western land now being held from production by speculators, says Toronto Saturday Night. According to cabled reports from abroad the touring western premiers recently expreseed similar sentiments. This cHanged attitude on the part of thoseXthe 'Wanco-German war. That flank who l�xe*�!ii-making a carefnl:study oj the ijroblem moro or less confirms the views ' "expressed by Saturdiy Night � few months ago.- No-disinterested patrioBc Canadian could very well-arrive at any other decision,; it eanad�'is to-take its proper place amongrprogresslve nations. ..U thg.premier and govenunpnt of thto country are sincere In- their publicly expressed inclinations and "Statements about the sacrifices neces3a."y to' not only win this war, but toma^e appropriate provision for Canada's returned veterans, and others likely to be attracted to .this land (radical legislation along the lines above suggested will have to .be paaaed at an early date. The lamentable blunders and lack of-statesmanship on the part of former . governments should be speedily remedied. That fact was forcibly Impressed on. the returned soldiers during 'thft last s^sslotfNOt the Ottawa house. There had been much tikfJi; .about what the Government was g'dihg to do in the way of providing v'eteranfi wlth'land, but about the only thing they succeeded in doing was to ip'ake -jt clear that the real meat, in tie^ way'of desirahle land, had pre-^ously been given to ,a few favored l^aivlduals, corporations or political grafters. f The admitted failure of Canada's land policy is both painful and em-larrassing, and nothing can be gained �tlirough any effort at camouflaging. /Tlie.oply' real cure is an operation, aiid .the sooner it la performed the betters clt,:the returned' soldiers ^vIBh to.jnake sure and laating their victory Ipr'.'freBdom" and "true democracy", tWey'wiil siick to tiielr guns till, tl>e menace .of the western land gatnblers lig-emovod. .... due to interference with the plans and judgment of commanders in the field by governments for political reasons or acting under misapprehension of the strategic sltnaUou. One notable example Is Marshal MacXIahon's attempt to relieve Bazaine's army shut up in Metz during the early stages of 1.-"'; te:' It: '.f � T.he.kaiser �s� 'WTING on'granite." What are the kaiser's troubled ttibughts In the night hours, when Blepp llloa from his "pillow, whei all tbft trappings of'imperial-power; are toylslble, and hef la alone � with : hla juflty^con^clepco^and his angry God?

It was ordered by the government of the Empress-Regent, who recognized that the Imperial throne was tottering and could only be saved by some sudden and spectacular military success. The last throw of despairing gamblers they recked not that in the sacrifice of this army they also deatroyed the one real chance remaining of ultimately stemming the German tide. According to a confidential document that recently reached the Associated Press: from an authoritative source, the interference of the Roumanian government deprived General Averescu, the commander-in-chief, of a golden opportunity to overwhelm the German and Bulgarian armies in i-the Dobrudja. In September, 1916, he had crossed the Danube with an army of four divisions and had opened a clear path into the heart of the opposing forces by penetrating fifteen mnes for the purpose of cutting their communication atid etrlklng from their rear. His own position was secure since behind him were eight divisions of supports and .reinforcements, including Serbian . and ' Roumanian troops-of the first quality. Just at this Junctiiro a peremptory: order came from the government to withdraw his army and it was-insisted upon, notwithstanding his urgent remonstrances over a lopg-distanco telephone. TJjp Roumanian c&blnet, ?iPr pears,'was apprehensive .of the German armies on the. Carpathian front breaking through and  .tceompliahlng much mischief at the time when Ave-rescu'e "forces were far away in the biohrudja.
