THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Tho advance of the Teutons against the unopposing Russians lias carried the enemy forces beyond Tarnapoi and Kalicz, and there is still no indication of an attempt at a stand by the Russians. Their retreat has assumed gigantic proportitons, and tho situation with respect to the Galician front is alarming in, the extreme. Capital punishment is noir being urged for the deserters, but tWs, if put into effect, would hare to be carried out on a wholesale scale, for whole regiments have deserted tho firing line. The French have become victorious In the severe fighting which has been In progress for tho past week or more on the western front. The extensive attacks launched by the Germans have proven utter failures, and the French have again taken the offensive, driving the Germans from the last vestige of trench taken recently, and forcing them back of their own lines with terrific losses. Activities on the British front are as yet confined to raids on enemy trenches, which have bean highly successful. BORDEN APPROVED OF WAR-TIME ELECTION It must not bo forgotten by those who criticize opponents of the extension of the life of parliament, that Sir Robert Borden, when ho asked Sir 'Wilfrid Laurler to Join him in a coalition, with conscription as the chief policy, suggested that this coalition government should immediately appeal to the country. Sir Robert Borden there and then committed himself to the war-time election on conscription. If such an election was considered necessary for a coalition government, Is It not evident that it was a great deal more necessary under a party government? Sir Robert Borden, having placed his approval on a war time election, cannot criticize those who �upported his view and voted against an extension. 1.-All men between 20 and 46 without children. 2.-All men between 20 and S4 with not more than 2 children. 3.-All men between 35 and 46 with not moro than 2 children. | 4.-All men between 20 and 34 with not more than 4 children. 5.-All men between R."i and 4G with not moro than 4 children. 6.-All men betw.^on 20 and 4fi with more than 4 children. New Zealand is not an oligarchy. Long beforo the war enmo to educate tho allies into the organized methods of state socialism, New Zoaland had adopted public ownership and control of such essential industries as railways, telephones, telegraphs, light, hrat, power. Free-thinking citizens of JTnw Zealand can apparently bo enthused to almost any measure of national service where they are actually serving for the nation and not for private gain. A New Zealand cabinet minister recently referred to the Ilklihood of tho government having to organize the available manpower for work on tho farms. After threo years tho political leaders in Canada are beginning to learn that this war cannot be carried on much longer as a profitable private enterprise. The whole power of the nation cannot be consecrated to the task until Canada is organized on New-Zealand's basis of national service.
