ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR A very vigorous offensive by the Briti-h and French in Flanders was claimed yesterday by the Germans to have been checked. The offensive movements bad apparently been car- ried on with considerable success, but the Germans claim the annihilation ot a British force at Labassee. They, however, admit that some ground has been gained in other directions. The Russians are preparing make a stand 16 miles from LenAerg. There In no indication of the progress of the new movements in Poland. There were no reports from the Dardanelles, r.or the Italian front yes- terday, in both of which theatres of vw the Allied positions are believed to be strong. You're right, Mr. walit people on tho land, all right, "lit not misllts. The country In order to bo developed, must be cultivated by people who know how to farm or who have the capital to suffer some to get the experience. A lot of th BENEATH THE TOWER ON PARLIAMENT HILL GOSSIPY LETTER BY GADSBY SIR ROBERT BORDEN AND A GENERAL ELECTION Out., June Wilfrid Lnnrior's chnllonogo "1 will not opou the portals of office with that bloody key" has .captured the luuigVuutlou of the country. Tho iininlon grows that Premier Uordiii must-either .take-it or leavo it. The opinion also grows t that he will leave it because'so far ho has refused to discuss it. Si'ience is one of tho best tho Premier does. A plain statement from Premier Borden that there will be no general election until the war Is over, would be a great boon to Canada, but that statement Sir Robert shirks making. It is true, ns his campaign literature advertises, that Harden backs Britain, but thiit probably means that he backs i Britain as far as expedient. Ho h failures ill farming in Ibis and the failures that have often been quoted as examples to retard settle- ment have been due to entire example, the pos fanning.

They realized it would, slash their trans- continental freight traffic, and the} now fins that their fears are .being -Tulij- realized. Even Canadian roads will be seriously affected. A delegation of manufacturers from eastern Canada waited on the Do- minion government and asked for the establishment of a Canadian customs office in New York and extension of ibonding privileges here. The object of the request is to enable goods to .way ot the Panama Canal, thus creat- ing competition against the long rail- way haul to the Pacific coast. There Is at present a steamship line be- tween .Montreal and the Pacific coast ,but it is stated that the preient facili ties are not satisfactory Bonding privileges therefore from one. Canad ian port to another through the Unit- lack of knowledge of hundreds of cases, under our home- stead laws, men have taken up land who knew no more about farming than the Kaiser floes about inter- national integrity. They thought farm- ing was an easy way of making 11 living: all that was necessary was to plonvseed and harvest. They found out differently and they left the farm and knocked the country. What they should iave done was "knock" them- selves, for they were to blame. As Mr. Conoiy says, we want real farm- ers on the land. If the unemployed want to learn how to farm they must engage with a farmer and get the knowledge from milking the cows, and bedding the horses, right through to harvesting a crop. Unquestionably there are many men in the city who would succeed upon a farm, but there are hundreds of others who couldn't make good at farming, .because they haven't the first hand knowledge or the capital to take a chance on losing while they are experimenting in ac- quiring knowledge. "Back to the land" is a very good slogan, provided it puts the men, who know how ta farm. on the land. There are enough fail- ures on' farms in this country now, without encouraging others to meet the same fate. ed States are desired. This is proof that the Canadian railroads will, suffer, as well as the American lines. ing her example and postponing par- tizai, strife until Germany is disposed of. Halo Is Fraying .Meanwhile Premier Borden's halo is fraying at ibe edges. Even his own friends 'condemn his .vacillation. It is well known that tho Premier likes to monopolize all the stained glass attitudes in party politics. For instance, if a.ny ex-communicating is to be done it is ..Sir Robert who in- dulges in the grant gestures which sweep sinners like Garland and Fos- ter out of sisht. Sometimes the sin- ner: refuse to stay swept, but that makes no Great Puri- fier has done-his work and been seen in one of his favorite poses. Like- wise, Sir Robert has a habit of seiz- ing any laurels that may be handed about, and if occasionally he gets a Garland of thisfies instead of the wreath of bays he was expecting, It is his own fault for grabbing more than his share. Certain working members of the Cabinet hive have begun to complain at a division of labor which apportions all the glory to Sir Robert and all the blame to his huniMe and inferior as- sociates.

If anything, the Honorable Bob is he braver would do It nit Sir Robert cannot be scared off. The Premier is much of Hamlet's rape of mind when about to commit auicide. He hesitates to fly to evils he wots not of. The rumor runs that Premier Borden has never been op- posed to any general election that iad a fair prospect of success. What he sought was to defer vhich attitude he-was strengthened by practical friends In the Cabinet, who thought it a shame to hand the spending of one hundred and fifty million dollars over to the Liberals, n short, the election has been as movable as Premier Borden's fears which receive new. impetus every time a Canadian casualty list arrives from It is not- men that intimidate the Premier, hut events.
