THE PROGRESS, OF THE WAR The fourth anniversary of the eom-tnentement o� (he war finds the allies, according to view* expressed, in a very much better position on the western front than was the case a year ago, just after the Somme offensive started. The large area reclaimed from the invader is mentioned, and the fact is pointed out that German losses are relatively much higher now than ever before. The arrival of U.S. contingents in France lends a very bright aspect to the future outlook. attempt to organize for federal purposes a combination which under Liberal direction will stand before the country as a purely Western party. Its promoters will go before the clcc-i tors wltb the special plea that this is the party of the West; while the1 Conservatives are vhe party of the' .East, tlio Western wing of the latter being always under the dictation of Eastern Interests. Such is the plan. Ot this there can he no doubt, ft Is clever, and the preparatory work has already been laid. In the platform ot this party will op included several planks that appeal strongly to the people of the prairie provinces. . First and foremost will stand free trade in natural products, reciprocity and the like. No argument is required to demonstrate the popularity of this doctrine between Winnipeg and the Hookies, Another plank will be the transfer of the natural resources within the prairie provinces to their respective governments. This, too, will be a very popular plank. Sir Frederick llnultaln did not win on that policy in Saskatchewan, but he at least forced his opponents to accept it as their policy, even though, in so doing, they had to turn their backs completely on their own platform.

In this they are mistaken. Organized Liberalism in the West is no friend of the Borden government and never will be. It believes ft can send from the pryirie provinces to Ottawa a representation that will be in the proportion of three Liberals to one Conservative, ^PICKED UP IN* PASSING *�x THB bvsy MAN The Clarendon, one of the oldest Winnipeg hotels Is closing its doors to the general public.
