Your King and Country Need You Right Nowl THE PROGRESS OF THE V/AR Throijgh the gloom of tlie Russian military situation camo a ray of light yesterday in the announcement that the Rumanianltussian forces operating on the Rumanian front had penetrated the Teuton lines on a wide front and had taken a large number of prisoners, ovt-r a thousand. This partially counteracts the disastrous Russian retreat in Galicia. whore the Germans are continuing to advance over a wide area unopposed. Confidence is atill expressed in Petrograd that the situation can again be gotten under control, and the troops driven back to the trenches. Things aro warming up on the western front, apparently preparatory to a new British drive which has been anticipated for some time. A STEP TOWARDS WEALTH CONSCRIPTION. The government has at last taken steps along the lines of conscription of wealth, and while to many the tax will seem too small in the case of large incomes or private persons or Corporations, taken as a whole, the announced levy will be much better than the present plan whereby many large privato incomes 'were left untouched. Sir Thomas White states that the enactment is the result ot a growing public demand. This comes from many Conservatives, the great mass of Liberals and Labor men. Why the gov-) to establish sample markets. Thoso interests have the car of the Hon. Robert Rogers, who is notoriously willing to serve them at the expense of the farmers, and who recently, despite the repeated protests of the organized fnrmorr.. made through the Canadian Council of Agriculture, declared that sample markets would lie established at western points in the near future It is true that, while the protests ot the farmers were unavailing, those ot the railroad inter-' osts tnducod the government to delay action. The fight, however, is not conrluded, and now it seems natural to suppose that the Interests demanding the sample markets will be reinforced by those which arc concerned in the hospital elevators, who through this moans only can salvage their investment. It is important, therefore, that the organized farmers should in this mat-tor malntnfn an attitude of extreme watchfulness. The Canadian Council of Agriculture, hns in the past expressed itself with unmistakable clearness and unanimity on this matter. It' may be assumed thnt it is fully alive to tho situation and that future action of the Ottawa authorities threatening tho farmers' Interests lu this matter will not bo affected without further protest from that body. Tho desire of the millers for the sample market, with freedom to buyers of sample grain to mix the grain they buy and then secure government grading out of the mixing elevators on the merits of tho grain loaded out, was very elenrly explained In the report of the Saskatchewan Royal Commission on Grain Markets (1012). Tho commission pointed out that tho miller would benefit financially in two ways, namoly: "(a) He will be able to buy a bet- j ter grade two or three than the importer can, because (apart from the fact that he can pick individual cars from districts that he knowB, just as at present) ho will buy his two or three beforo it is mlnglud in the terminal bins with tho low lino two or three that must inevitably emerge from a successful mixing elevator, while the importer will receive on his certificate the more or less degraded two or throe that cannot but be delivered from the bins of tho terminals if a successful sample market operates In conjunction with an export market; and "(b) Because he will be able to buy his superior two or three at a price fixed by that which the importer will ho found willing to pay for the inferior two or three." Of the professional mixing element ot the grain trade the report said that it must be evident that they "will benefit by the operations of the sample market, as they will secure the surplus value in the wheat that is not of contract or the higher commercial grades and some of tho value of such wheat of contract grades as they buy for mixing purposes." Any benefit that the farmer could derive is largely problematical, and in any case could affect only a very small proportion of the crop. It is a 4 cents per quart, while tho retail charge, nuido by tho dairymen to tho consumers is now 1.2 hi cents per quart was given at tho onqnlry which Is being conducted by a special committee of tho city council.

TraelJ :,uul children who came with im-lover and above Canadian millers re- perambulators to take it away. in face of the popular demand, to poso such a tax we cannot under-1 quirements, the competition of export stand. Surely it Is better that the boys' ers forcing the millers to pay at least on the battlefield should understand that wealth is paying some share of the war, that they aro not to be left to bear as much of the burden on their return as they would have to bear had they never taken their places in the fighting lines. It Is n step that has been too long delayed. It is a step that should have beeni taken before conscription was announced. Now that it has been announced, however, it should facilitate greatly the enforcement ot conscription, and it will do so If Sir Thomas White will boldly announce that, if It works out that the tax is too light on large incomes, It will be Increased until Canada Is paying as much in proportion to her wealth as Great Britain Is paying. One thing more. Canada has had  surfeit of war profiteering. Let tho government take bold steps to put an end to the profiteering business. export price for wheat. It is there fore a matter of obvious importance to maintain the integrity or standard of our export grades, the least impairment of which will react unfavorably on the prices at which tho entire crop will be sold. Now, it should be clear that, with well patronized sample markets in operation, deterioration of the grades in the bins of the public terminals must follow, because, to quote again from the report of the Saskatchewan Royal Commission: "No system of in-j spection could for any length of time j insure that every car graded out of ] the mixing elevators should be equal! to at least the medium line of the grade it was given." And the European Importer and miller would quickly discover the deterioration and reduce their bids accordingly. Of this the report previously cited says: "In so far as tho wheat they actually bought is concerned, this might not be too serious, but their reduced bids would set the price at which all the undeteriorated grades in the country would be bought.

Last spring an announcement was �sade by the minister of trade and commerce that sample markets would be Introduced in Western Canada. Recently' the railways intimated that, under the conditions which the war had enforced in' the lab'of mat-Vet, It would be unwise to .introduce the sample market at the present time. They clalir.' that' it would take a much larger- force 'of employees- in the operating department to move tho train if it had to bo tied up at various sample market points. Very!few farmers in the.west understand the Bample market plan, except in a general way. There aro arguments on both sides of tho quas Uon but on the whole the farmers item to be opposed to the lnaugura-| tlon of the new system.

In view of the fact that tho establishment of the sample market is opposed by the railways owing to its tendency to tie up rolling stock and increase the delay in securing cars, and In view also of the fact that the farmers do not seem to be keen for the establishment of the new method of selling, it would appear to be poor policy on the part of the government to force the plan at the present time. More investigation by the farmers themselves is needed before Buch a step is taken.
