Tho Austrian drive iias Lveiywiiera failed ot its objective mi iiiu .uU'.aii front, and while there is stil! desper. ato fighting proceeding along the riBve iliver. iho drive has defirv(te!y ended In complete failure. The .Austrian empire is now a seething ratts.^ o{ revolt and unrest. In Vienna the demands for peace grow daily, and sef. ioui riots have occurred. In Germany, a like condition is rapidly coming about. Riots have oc. curred in Berlin in which It was necessary to use the military. On the western front comparative quiet prevails, the German armies evidently having bpen again exhausted by their recent fruitless efforts. WESTERN CANADA CROP CONDITIONS. It must frankly be admitted that the Western crop prospect at the present time fnrnishes room for anxiety. With the largest acreage in the history of Western Canada under crop, moisture conditions are not good, and rain is badly needed in practically every part of' the There are some few isolated parts of the West where moisture has been plentiful, but on the -whole the cry is for rain. A good general downpour for-a day or two, If it came within the next week, -would have a very benefidlal effect, and tt-ould probably result in an'average harvest. The next week will, therefore, tell the tale. There is, however, no cause to be oyer-pesBlmlstic about condition.'?. A crop failure now will not shake our faith in Westem Canada, for we have' had three years of' good crops wlth-ouV a break. During that time this district has raised nearly 100,000.000 bushelSf-and on the whole moat ot our farmers are in very good financial condition. As compared with their prosperity of the past, three,yeacs,, a ])artlal crop faijure this year jnay make' them feel poor, but as compared with their financial condition lU 1314 inost of them cannot feel other than prbspo'roua' arid they will tackle the job of big production next year with ag much enthusiasm as e^er. From the standpoint ot the Allies, it would be unfortunate were Western Canada, the-granary of the Ehn-pire, to have a partial^crop tallurfe this year. We raise so much more than we need tor ourselves as a riile that our exportable surplus is a b.ig factor In. feeding the Allied nations antJ the Allidrt armies. However, the cheering news comes from south of tho line that the United States' wheat �tales are receiving plenty of moisture and the Americans will this year harvest about 875,000,000 bushels. Which Is as much as Canada and the Slates raised together last year. The Allies will therefore be no worse off than during 1917-18, and though' we in the Canadian West may have to pull in our belts a couple "of notches, and cut down on wheat eating, the Allies and their armies will be ted. Altogether our situation is not bad. We BtlU have good chances for a very fair crop. It Is extremely unlikely that we -win have a total crop failure. And In any event North America will be ^able to feed herself and send as much wheat to the Allied nationji as In 1917-18. Grim determl^ialion to carry on In the face of any eventuality i� what the the front avu xpectlng from us: the Petrograd wrltos: "All observers ot the village to-day are unanimously of the opinion that tho process ot dIslntORrntion and do-mornllzatton Ss proceeding there with Irresistible force. Having plundered the estates of the land' owners, having shured out among thenisolve.� or simply destroyed the dead and Hv. ing slocks on those estates, hnving oven taken to pieces tho buildings, tlip peoPTtnts are now preparing tor war .ngainft one another for the division of the spoil. To this Is added thf oaUimlly of famine. !n some districts llie population has long ago consuiil-pd iill the available .stocks of corn, including sseed corn; while in others tho peasants, having had a good harvest, are hiding corn, and even burying it in order not to share it with their sinrving nolghbors. All this must lead, and In some places has already led, to a war of all against all. and to the most senseless chaos and universal destruction and mur-di^l. i'nman beings, we are told, are now bought and so'ii. and tho price has dropp'ni from $T.'> lo $15 The .N'avnya Zhiza Jirocepils:  Infq,rmatlon is constantly arriving of tho division of military property among demoralized soldiers anil ot various outrage^ committed by tliem. -Mon.-trous rumors are circulated about tho p.rmy which "Is returning from Asia Minor. It appears that it has brouKht into the Crimea a large number of female slaves, and that at Theodosla a regular slave-market Is being held, the supply being so large that prices soon fell from 100 or l.'iO rubles to -'6 or 'tO rubles per slave. �Can any contrast be more striking, and sarcasm more biting, than this'.' .\ccording lo official assurances we are entering the Kingdom of Communism, where complete equality Is to reign among men, wliere bourgeois property Is entirely abolished, and where the power of chattels Is entirely broken. In reality, we are transforming human beings Into chattels; we are restoring pre-bonrgeols property in human beings, and the soldiers ot the revolutionary array are publicly trading In slaves, as the planters did In the times of Mrs. Beecher Stowe." in a bitter passage, terrible in its irony. Maxim Gorky concludes: "Ves. ihe process of self-discipline among the masses is proceeding with gigantic strides. The revolutionary army garrison at Sebastopol has already undertaken the last final slr\i|;gle with the bourgeoisie. Without much ado they decided simply to massacre all the bourgeoisie who lived within their reach. They decided and did it. .\t first they massacred the inhabitants of the two bourgeois streets in Sebastopol; then the same operation, in spite of the resistance ot the local Soviet, was extended to Simferopol, and then the turn came ot Eupatoria. .A.pparently similar tadlCfcl  methods, of elass-iKar will soon be applied also to Greater Unssia. for we liave already- -Vlr. Blelchmann (the leader of the anarchists) energetically carrying on an agitation within the walla of the Petrograd Soviet in this sense. In Petrograd Itself, at the factories, the dlEclpline has reached a state ot perfncUoa that jnore and more the subordinate organs ot the Soviet, and even the trade unions, have to issue threats ot � deductions from wages, and even of complete dismissal, for the never-ending holding of meetings." . -^PICKED UP IN'* PASSING *Wed-nesilay last.
