ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The Canadians have not allowed the Germans to remain long in possession of the ground they took when they inflicted such terrific losses upon the Dominion's In a brilliant conn ter charge conducted early Tuesday morning, the Canadians regained prac- tically all of the ground lost, and took n substantial toll of the enemy's troops as well. The Russian force? are said now to have penetrated the country beyond Czernowitz. the Bukowinian capital. Resistance in this country has been small, owing perhaps to the fact that the majority of troops are Galicians who are Russians by preference and make no attempt to stop the Russian advance. Further north, the Russians have attacked the German lines, according to a Berlin report, but with little success thus far. Though artillery continues to be ac- tive at Verdun, there appears to be a lull in the violent infantry assaults which have characterized the German campaign, and the reason for this is given in the sheer exhaustion of the German troops following their stupen- dous but futile attempts at Thiaumont and other difficult sectors of the Ver- j dun front. At Thiaumont it is said j the Germans used an entire division in one series of 12 attacks, which fol- lowed so closely upon each oilier tliat they appeared to merge. A speaker at the Progressive con- vention in Chicago declared: "A na- tion which declares itself !oo proud to fight wil! soon be regarded as too cowardly to live." Thousands of Am- ericans hold that view and only wait for real leadership to fall into line for preparedness and action if need bo. "Two Calgary, Men. Winners of the D. C- M..

Ottawa, June letter received by Captain John Basel, staff oilicer to General Sam Hughes, from Sir Max Aitktn, clears up tho controversy which lias arisen as to whether or not the colors of tho Princess Patri- cias are taken into action. The letter UUQles Captain Hugh Niven, of tbe Princess Pats, as stating that the col- ors of the Princess Pats have been with the regiment from the day when they were presented by the Princess at Ottawa. Referring to the date of May S. 1915, which has been partlcu- arly mentioned in the controversy, Captain Niven says: "The colors were that day in tho .ranches, as the battalion headquar- -ers was in the trenches, and the orders are that they shall always be vhere the commanding officer makes lis headquarters. "The evening of May 8. 1915, I had the honor of carrying the colors from the trenches to our support line after our relief." PORTLAND WOULD HEAR HUGHES Portland, Ore.. June B.

A British Lord Chancellor had been compelled to re- sign by au adverse vote of the House of Lords because it liad been shown that his son trafficked for personal gain In public transactions under the control his father.

That's a flying trip the Russians are making. endeavoring to argue that it is un- patriotic .to uncover the various tran- sactions in regard to fuse contracts. Herein, warns'the Ottawa Citizen, lies the danger in a moral and social sense. It adds: "If we allow the impression to get abroad that our war scandals are to "be conducted on .patriotic grounds, and false patriotic grounds at j example, as might be formed by Mr. Lloyd George, who with the assistance of Sir Edward Carson and Lord Milner there would arise a tendency among that, we shall earn should be perfectly aided and oYage. and was a'gradu- j abetted by a Canadian minister of ate of "Upper Canada College and the the crown to take undue tolls by way f of unwarranted commissions from the British government, but that it would" be wrong to take a similar toll Beland, Canada's former postmaster- l. has been liberty ion from the Canadian government.
