Buchanan John HanaEinc Director Business Manaai 1S51 1JM .Your King and Country need you right nowl ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THfe WAR Ten years ago the Japanese were Sighting the Russians. The past week ttey have aided the Russians in tti -capture of important centres in Oa- i.licia and Bukowina. by the use of big guns they have loaned the Czar's j forces. This news is contained in (yesterday's dispatches, which an- 'iiounce the capture of Czernowitz, the capital, hy the Russians. The superb artillery now possessed '.by.the Russians has played an enor- 'inoiis part in the recent stupendous j successes against the Austrians. These I successes appear to he continuing. The Slavs have again over-run Galicia and Bukowina, and their prisoners :uow are said to number Heavy German, attacks at Verdun again have failed, according to Paris announcements. Details of the sea battle in the Bal- tic, in which the Russians scored a Victory, have been given, showing that the Russians sunk two auxiliary 'imiisers of the Germans, as well Borne merchant vessels. The situation in Greece is typified .by the action of Greek authorities and government favorites in openly ofler- ;lng insult to the allied reprasenta- :tives: That these are not, however. In accord with the popular feeling iihere, has been previously -demon- .ttrated. The recent public insults to -the allies have been carefully organ- Sjied by the tools of the Skoulodis gov- Urnment which is -favorable to King Constantino. NO SURPRISE IN NOMINATION is espected that any other candidate than Woodrow Wilson would be nominated for the presi- dency by the Democrats, and of course it would have been a slap in the face for Marshall if he .had notvbeen chosen aga'in as the partner on the ticket. Wilson went into the White House a host of admirers He was looked upon as a clean man, and he las proved himself to be such; ho considered a statesman, and ac- Jtnonledged to be one of the ablest and most distinguished men who ever reached the presidency It seems to us he has lost prestige since he be- tame president, and his policy on the -European and Mexican situations are "the source of. this opinion. Qf course, we are forming our opinions as an observer on the outaide. Maybe American opinion is largely at his: back, grateful to him for having kept the country out of war. He haa had a hard road to travel since he m- sumed presidency Ai far as plat- form pledges are concerned, has put most of them Into effect, some- iimes la Uie face ol markea-Iwmfi- crabc opposition In Congress. In administration. of domestic affairs we -say that Wilson has lully lived up to expectations In Tils loreign .policy he has not been so suc- cessful too much and acted not at all He should have protested' -against the devastation Belgium; thousands of bis own coun- trymen that view, and maybe it he-bid ittto doeover_again, protttt'jIjTherefare many people, who started of v.ho bin formed "this opinion that in- stead politician that in his controversy with Gerniany he always had thoughts en the -German vote and did not want -'to of. tend this big element in the popula- tion bf the .United One thins :iB he has kept his country out though some of ue think he hafc_ sacrificed its honor too much for the sake of peace.

In o der to get info tlie'fcalgafy elo vator for eastern shipments, specla rates have to -be made by the gral commission and tho'railways. .As w have frequently said before, this elo question of law is con- cerned, and many times the judges express the opinion that the men might just well hare got together and' settled the matter without all the expense. It is just such cases that the arbitration board could deal with vary nleely. is TneV' naifl" the opinion United electors will decide on his merits. They, will say whether they 'approve of hli administration or not. It is their ttnulness, not ours.
