A. Bueliwiin llanaglnc Director ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR A BTt-nt British and French offen- sive ii developing in France, which is news after the apparent stagnant state of the pren bureaus having contrel over particular lone ot the war. Important successes hare already been gained, and more are to be within grasp of the Allied troops, who, are sweeping everything before them, though at ireat seorlfiee of men. With the more complete organisation of the manufacture of munitions In England, which guarantees the sup- ply of ammunition to the forces in the fifUd, tfee possibility of carrying ihroufh.thM new offensive to great advaatage ii considerably increased. The and are continuing their drive .towards Leta- berg, which tile Kusalani an making atubborn efforta' to hold against the almost attacks of the ene- rar. According to German report! their capture of the capital il far distant. The Italians continue to report suc- cesses in their campaign. In the Dar- danelles the Turks claiaa have re- pulsed Briiith attacks. The fuiiirton charges More the Royal Commission in Manitoba may be for the purpose of throwing dust in the eyes of the public, so as to off- set the revelations brought forth ag- ainst the Conservatives. Neverthe- less thev should be thoroughly in- vestigated. As thrilling and as enlightening de- scriptions ot character of the war- fare participated in by the Canadians since gains to the front, are to be found in the diary of Lleut.-Col. Ciirrle ot the Canadian Highland meat. Col. Currle is aft old news- paper man, and he knowi haw to aerre up newe from the front in a spicy, interesting strte. It IE to be that his diary will be preserved and published in -hook form, as the narrative is so full of what is termed "human touches" that the people who once read it will want to preserve it. CLEAN UP THE WHOLE MESS The Manitoba .is getting worse. The'revelations far show tie late Conservative government te he one of the most eunpt that ever administered tie attain ef a-jrrovince. Now we have cnarfea against tie Liberal" party, in which it is claimed that for a money considera- came to an understanding witi the late government. The chart- ee are .empnaHoally by a mem- ber of the liberal government, hut the.piAUe must have more than a nrast have an iaTeatication !H> The eri- tire.attnattoa neadc thorough investi- gation. It the Uberels are in any way responsible tor a deal witi the late government, the dual should bo exposed: If there was not a deal an investigation will do no harm, bat rather it will do good to the liberal party- The mUsuiaUoa that there waa a deal between the two parties that the Royal Coauoiseloa should be called off, does not seem possible, since that commission has been bnsy ever slBcc tie change ot government took jHaee, and since it has been re- 'lentlesa in unearthing the complete story of the corruption of the Roblin government, and in patting iti hands upon men high up in the pub- lic Mfe ot that province. Party politics throughout the coun- try mast be purified, and the oppor- tunity' comes through the renditions In Manitoba. Etery man in that pro. rince who has been a party to politi- cal corruption, or who has partloipat. ed in any deal, whether Conservative or Liberal should be given the (ma- iahmeot which the law tor criminals of this character. A leasjon mist be taught, and Man- itoba can set the example at tile momeat. IVnat ii the eajtse of this political eomptloo? la it for personal bene- fit or {or the benefit of the campaign funds? In Manitoba, it aeems ap- parent that the money corruptly se- cured from the Parliament bnHilngs contract was for campaign purposes, and it night qoltt likely be that this la the ease. Wko is to Mame for snreh a condition of attaint eW ttons are conaueted now, a great deal ot money is required to pay In the old times people voluntarily offered their service! without aay ex- pectation of helnr remunerated. They were prepare! to do the canvassing, man the polls on election day, supply the and contrlbttte to the candidate's personal That k not the case today. The candidate of the patty has to pay the caavaee- en, pay for ill sorts of clerical work duijiog the campaign, and meet many other countless expenditures. The campaign road, as K is known today must be pat out of buelneM before corruption In patHe life will cease.
