Upon Germany's reply rests The basis of future relations between those two great countries. This week should witness the climar. Saturday's dispatches were to the effect that the- Germans were prepar- ing for. another violent drive asaiinfit the Allied lines in France. Sunday bulletins gave the information that German .attacks of great violence nad been repulsed with heavy losses. ,Tnst cheering news comes from the Dardanelles, where tie Al- lies are said to have beaten back the Turks with tremendous loss to the enemy. .Constantinople hospitals are full to overflowing with the Turk wounded. Things are rapidly coming to a head in this theatre of the war. The Austrians are reported to have taken the offensive against the Ital- ians. However, the new partner of tbe Allies has been able to establish itself in very strategic positions on Austrian EOll.
