Once they get the idea that they are being deceived as to losses !u this war, they will naturally imag- ine llie worst. Wo can, at this dis- tance, see 'military reasons' why the Jerman people should be told the truth about such things, rather than falsehoods. On the other hand these late admissions will fully convince the British people that all the claims of thriir own officials as to prepomlerat- ng losses suffered by the German fleet In this battle are that they have won a big victory instead of. suffering a Your King and Country need you right now! ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR Repeating their great successes, of last year, the Russians are now sweep- ing on towards the Austro-Hungarian border along almost identically the frontier over which they gained their victories early in the war when they threatened the great Galician fort- resses of Presmysl and Lemberg. This year, however, there is the vast difference in that the Russians are properly equipped, and should not be forced to retire from the possession of the big areas conquered. Latest dispatches announce that the Czar's forces have again crossed the Dneister, in the heart of Galicia. and are rapidly moving up into the passes of the Carpathians leading to the plains of Austria-Hungary. There is panic in Vienna over this onsweeping Hussian offensive, for now the Aus-: trian armies, exhausted as they are from a year of heavy fighting, are cut oft from their German allies, and are in full retreat. On the Verdun front the Germans are continuing their attacks with no more success than.has attended their previous efforts. The fatal Tpres salient, on which so many Canadian lives have been sac- rificed, will not' be abandoned by the j British, the war office having informed tho Canadian authorities that it is Tastly important that- this be The admiralty has officially an- Bounced that the cruiser Hampshire, on board which, was Kitchener and his staff, was sunk by GERMANY'S LYING TACTICS REVEALED Germany frankly admits she lied about her naval losses in the Jutland sea fight Great- Britain, was brutally frank in announcing hers.

Had the Progressives and Republicans combined to support either Roosevelt or Hughes, Wilson's prospects would be far from rosy. Jus tice Hughes is, a man of high principle and great ability, but he is largely of the-Wilson type. a. theorist- He pos- sesses high ideals, as Wilson does, but 16 is nqt an aggressive leader and 'orcefu! character like Roosevelt. For months his name has been before the public as a possible candidate but there were many who thought he rbuid hot consider the nomination as he held Strong views on judges leav- ag the supreme court to enter the political arena. He had been in pub- ic life, as governor of New York, where he made a notable record for faithful, disinterested service, ami on lis retirement accepted a position on .he supreme court bench, a congenial ocatlon for a great lawyer, and he had endeavored to resist the call to enter politics again. He has been forced to yield to the pressure, large- ly because the demand was made that he could unite the Republican party and put up the most effective opposi- tion to Wilson. However, Roosevelt's nomination on a progressive ticket still spells discord, and while Hughes undoubtedly Trill poll a much greater Republican vote than Taft-in 1912, we are cf-ths opinion that the Progres- sive ticket obliterates a possibility of victory. Were Hughes to pronounce strong views on preparedness and de- nounce in terms, as Root i and -Roosevelt have done, the foreign of President Wilson, he might bring about the withdrawal of Rooae- the Colonel as one of his strongest supporters. Roosevelt naturally is much admired estimate Is correct, Roosevelt is the muu needed at tho head of American affairs at this moment. The above comment was written before the announcement had .reached i us that Roosevelt had declined the Progressive nomination. Without Roosevelt in the and provided he actively supports Hughes and keeps the Progressives with tho Republi- cans, the Republican nominee should have an excellent opportunity of vic- tory. Roosevelt, however, is not like- ly to advocate Hughes, unless the lat- ter accept's the Colonel's views on ireparedness, hyphens and the war. Hughes must yield to Roosevelt in order to secure his support. Roose- vslt will not yield to Hughes and moderate the views he has already ex- pressed. Hats off to Russia. P IA AICKEDUPIN FOR THE BUSY MAN Sir Geo. E. Foster has boon appoint- ed an Imperial Privy councillor. Dr. Carman, of Swift Current was elected grand master iof the Saskat- chewan Oddfellows. A new law prohibits the cashing o checks in hotel bars in, British Col umbiii. Lieut. H. M. Taylor, Hegiim officer killed in action, was a native of Perth Ont, where his parents reside. Austria will soon bo on its knees to the Cossacks. Russia can fight when it has the equipment. The men are ready in countless thousands. It is foolish to pray for the rain to cease falling in a country where rai is always sought. There is another Hughes in the eye just now. but there is no Roosevelt to compete with Teddy, or another Allison to share publicity with Col. John Wesley. W. Sanford Evans, who is to be here on the 22nd, is an eloquent speaker. More than that he is a stu- dent and his address on "Canada's Wheat Problem" should be heard by farmers and business men alike. Two hundred, autos at a farmers' picnic, a press dispatch from Carman- ;ay tells us. Let us see, didn't we lave government assistance in this country less than two years ago. Isn't t wonderful the transformation one crop will bring about. The New York OuUooi. commenting upon the protest of the United States jsu against Great Britain detaining U.

Every minister and probationer in the Bay of Quinte .Methodist confer- ence received the minimum salary for the 'past year for the first time in the history the conference. Shortly after the congregation had left the building, Christ Church (An- glican) at Batteau, four miles from Collingwood, was struck by lightning and partially destroyed.

He is a real American, and abhors the hyphens.

He would have pro- tested against the violation cf the German government should now come j guaranteed neutrality of Belgium, and out officially and admit the loss: of two more ships "nTtne., battle off the coaat. They say that for 'military reasons', the loss of these ships was not-admitted .before. One of these ships, is, the Lutzow, com- pleted in 1915, and tons, burden. The other is a small .cruiser of 4900 it is more7than possible that the Lust- tania incident would never have oc- curred. .Roosevelt represents an ideal of a unified United States.

He has ever been a advocate of pre- paredness.- He realizes the German tons, the Rostok.7 The first German [menace and wants to be prepared to Ktatement issued officially the Ger- man admiralty declared specifically that only tons of their war vessels had been sunk by the.British Now they ..admit that the statement :was deliberately false and that more .than. tons additional was lost. .They say that .this was all their losses.

They do say, however, that their latest admissions-of lose complete, but they practically said when they gave 'losses as tons. "The statement issued yesterday .gives 'military.reasons' as an excuse for falsifying tjie. facts in'their, first report ot their losses. Naturally the 'public will now suspect that other 'military reasons' have prevented the German admiralty from admitting other losses tbat their enemies claim.

It must'flare an eqvally bad effect at home we would think. The Oerman have a truly Wonderful loyalty to tbefr gorornmeflt' In this war. They bate enor- ttoua without shrinking. -They are surely to UM C4- meet it. .Probably it was because of an eagerness to catch the" German vote that the Republicans did not favor Roosevslt as a candidate. As in political parties in the United States always1 have their eyes on the votes of the different elements of the population. The German vote is very important. Roosevelt is anti everything eicept true Americanism. We can't understand why his attitude does -not appeal to Americans so strongly: that they would demand-his nomination. It is true that he has made bitter enemies. Thousands of Republicans will never forget his atti- tude, in 1913 when he broke away from the party as a protest against steam- roller methods and reactionary principles and headed a Progressive party ticket That election, however, proved Roosevelt to have the greatest persona! following of any man of any party in the United States. Taft polled the. votes of stand pat Republicans; Wilson, it is true, had the support of many persons who were not crats, but Roosevelt was almost en- tirely supported by men who believed in Roosevelt it d'ficiui to proper- ly size up Roosevelt. Is he honest? he vain? Is he too fond of personal power? .Various and diverse answers would be offered to these questions. Dr. Lyman Abbott, a great American, an Intimate friend of Roosevelt, re- cently said: "For five years Mr. Roosevelt and I were'intimately asso- ciated. We met each week in editorial conference to consider what course The Outlook should pursue in dealing with public questions. He never ask- ed how a given course of conduct would affect either the fortunes of The Outlook or his own political prospects; always he addressed himself to two Questions: What la right? and, What can wisely and effectively be done to promote the right? It la for this rea- I count Mr. Roosevelt among the world's great statesmen." That is a tribute and if Dr. Abbott's We are now told that there is noth- ing wrong about Col. Allison accept- ing commissions, but we must not for- get that prior to the sitting" :of Royal Commission, Allison was boost- ed to the skies as a patriot who was serving Canada and the Empire with- out remuneration. Lloyd George war minister, the cables tell us. It .seems to us that if King George died, the little Welsh- man might be advocated to head a new dynasty. He seems to be the great man. of Britain just now. And to think that a few years ago he was denounced as socialistic, and everything else that.the ruling classes of England despised. Lethbridge's Board of Trade does not form hurried and careless opin- ions on public questions. Perusal of the views expressed on. our: immigra- tion problems as related to naturaliza- tion; prove that. Those views are abso- lutely sound, and should be brought to-the attention of the heads of gov- ernments in thitf country. Opinion of ihls kind is worth having, and in this case, worth acting upon. Although, six vacancies in the New Brunswick legislature, the Conservative government there only wrought on one by-election, one in which their candidate was a cabinet minister who had a majority of close upon 500 back of him. The govern- ment apparently hoped to win a vic- tory and thus create a sentiment which would enable them to carry the other seats. Instead, as the Re gin a Leader points out, the cabinet, min- ster was defeated, and now the gov- ernment is afraid to bring on the other The Berlin council endowed tfce memorial oi' the ..Toronto city coimciJ asking the Dominion .government to pass a daylight-saving mer.suni froai June 15 to October 1 for the curfuiil Says U.

At the same time It was announced that the justice had resigned as as- sociate justice of the supreme court of the United States. JuBtice Hughes sent his resignation by messenger to President Wilson Following is the telegram to Chair man Harding: "Sir.
