To the question not Infrequently hoard, at least in private circles, why Japan does not send an army to Kurope to co-operate with the British and French forces operating on the western front, an answer is supplied by Adachi Klnnosuke, described as the best known of Japanese writers in America. His reasons are of different kinds, some based on the practical difficulties and others more particularly referable to the situation In the Far East. Among the former class are those in which thiB writer points out that supposing Japan were able to and ready to send a fighting force of a million men to Europe- and anything short of that number, he says would be a heartless and ghastly jest both for herself and for her allies-who, lie asks. Is to feed j her men. supply them with munitions and keep them clothed. Japan herself would have to do this. And If, he proceeds, Japan were to turn to the production and transportation of supplies and foodstuffs for her own million men at the European front, j'.ist what is to happen to the Russian armies on the eastern fronts? It P'eans, Mr. Klnnosuke insists, a pre- THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR If the stories are (rue of the drought In Germany, the failure of crops in the empire this year will bring Germany to a peace on the allies terms quicker [ sent of the entire Russian army to than almost anything else. The shortage of food has for n long time been a serious matter in Germany, and faced �with a complete crop failure this year, the nation could scarcely withstand another year of -warfare. Austria is again facing a parliamentary crisis which threatens to bring about a ministerial downfall, all of which would lead to rapid capitulation by Austria to the allies. The Polish element in parliament has broken with the government and is fighting for independence. Should the government not be able to weather this crisis, important developments are bound to occur which will have a vital bearing on the war. OPERATORS,SHOULD WAIVE PENALTY CLAUSE. Indications are today that the penalty clause is the only difference be-tween'the. miners and operators -which is prolonging the strike. The wage question has been settled. That being the case,' we can see very little reason why the operators should insist further on the penalty clause. Let them waive the point and sign the new agreement. It is true that the men of District IS have not been any too prone in the past year to live up. to their agreements, but the operators should remember that abnormal conditions affecting the cost of living have prevailed. These conditions seem to be less likely to recur now that a food controller tor the Dominion has been appointed, and there is less the Prussian guns as a particularly timely burnt offering. Nothing less. That there is both truth and force in this contention cannot be gainsaid. Precisely the same situation faces the government of the United States, which also recognizes the responsibility resting upon it of not only raising, training'and transporting its fighting army in France, but no less of maintaining the expeditionary force at full strength and of supplying all that it requires. The European Allies are taxing their resources to the utmost at the present moment, and are in no position to undertake any further obligations; rather are they looking to the western continent to meet whatever is demanded, beyond the measure of- their own capabilities. The Allies know also that the matter of transportation presents a sarious problem to the United States authorities, both in the first movement of troops and later in the' provision of supplies. It has been stated, Mr. Kinnosuke points out, that it took something more than 4% tons of shipping for every British soldier and his equipment, etc., in the Gal-lipoli campaign, and that notwithstanding the fact that some, at least, of the bases of supply were nearer than any port of the United States will be to the fighting front in Europe. And if that problem is a sufficient worry to the United States' authorl-i ties, it cannot but be much more | difficult of solution In the case of I Japan, .with an, ocean voyage many-times longer in point of distance and like* to be restlessness among the impoasibie t0 negotiate at all except ^PICKED UP PASSING THE BUSY M^ A new forestry unit is to bo formed from among Indians.

In view of this fact, _it would ap-1 o{ caI1 { with the assistance of several ports. pear that the operators would be wise to waive their insistence on the penalty clause. The Herald believes that they can safely leave it to public opinion to see to it that the miners .will stay at work in the future. Public opinion plays a great part in labor disturbances such as we have had here, and we believe that, if thexoBt of living maintained a fairly steady-level, even though high as it is now, the miners would consider a long time before they brought on a strike which would divorce them entirely trom the sympathy of the people. The penalty clause In any event Is an experiment, and this is no time for experiments. The west is depending on this mine field for coal. Let the parties get together. Bat Mr. Klnnosuke has other reasons of & different character, which are poBslbly more open to diversity of opinion. Suppose Japan, he argues >. in effect, were, to send the best por- j tion of its available army to Europe, j what becomes of the guardianship of j the peace in India and the Far East? This, job of looking after affairs in the Far East while Great Britain is in trouble is The only responsibility placed on the boulders of Japan by the Anglo-Japanese alliance and is the only excuse and justification ot Japan being in this war at all. But, he proceeds, the scheme ot sending the Japanese army to Europe would mean the defeat of the alliance. ONLY ONE COUR8E FOR WESTERN LIBERALS. The Borden government has played' politics so consistently during the past three years that the opposition may easily be excused it they, look suspiciously at the conscription measure and wonder if it is merely a dodgo which is being worked to give the Conservatives a .new lease fit life, Any government that kept Sam Hughes in u cabinet position so long as the Borden government did is not above suspicion. Any government that kow-towed to Robert Rogers as the Borden government did is .not above suspicion. Any government that �, played to the Nationalist wing as the Borden government did in the case of the Quebec ministers is not above suspicion. The i>ecord of the government in its prosecution of the v/ar is not such as to Inspire confl. dence in a crisis like the present. But, if, says the Winnipeg Free Press, the western and Ontario Liberals desire to speak for their constituencies they will, with some exceptions, vote for the hill before the House. The government may be playing'politics; it may be -looking far more eagerly for a pretext for a successful ' election than for an opportunity to serve the cauBe of the war; itrriay plan, once the election iR won, to'"] discover that compulsion is no longer necessary. If Its members thus scheme lo betray the people, this is While the attitude ot Sir Wilfrid Laurler on the conscription measure may not be acceptable to conscrip-tionist Liberals, it should be remembered- that the opposition leader has a right to his convictions. He is for Canada's participation in the war, but he-wants the people united in any steps that may be taken toward greater effort. And he has precedents to guide him in his opinions. Conscription has not yet been enforced in Ireland. Australia took a referendum on conscription and defeated the measure. It is not pleasing that Canada should have an Irish problem of Its own on Its hands at this time, but the fact remains that we have and we might as well-recognize it. Shutting our eyes to it .will not make the solution eaa}er, -and there Is no doubt that Sir Wilfrid's attitude in the present instance is prpmpted by his knowledge of the situation. Senseless criticism of his attitude will not help the success of the conscription mea sure. U. S. ADMIRAL COMMANDS ALLIED FLEETS OFF IRELAND London. June 19.-Vlce-Admlral William fc>.
