THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR All recent development- in the war tend to the prediction that Germany will soon make another peace offer. The entrance of the V. S.. the failure of separate peace negotiations with Russia, the predicted failure of crops In Germany, all tend to the conclusion that Germany cannot hold out much longer, and that another attempt to make peace on her own terms, namely the return to the status quo ante, will be made. That this will not be considered by the entente is also a foregone conclusion. Britain is in better shape, notwithSjjanding the submarine warfare, with regard to her food situation than she was a month or so ago, and Germany is beginning to realize that the advantages are all on the side of the allies. The Russian government has obtained the full support in its war policy of the workmen's and soldiers' council and a new offensive is expected by them shortly. going back again as we did in 1914.

Our present hotel owners are doing their best with the accommodations at their command, but when that is not enough it is time for public action. CONSCRIPTIONIST LIBERALS MAKE THEIR STAND KNOWN. The speech of Hugh Guthrie, On-tarii Liberal on the conscription measure, fairly defines the stand to be taken by a number of Ontario and Maritime Liberals, and most of the members of the Liberal party from Western Canada. Mr. Guthrie criticized features of the bill and criticized also the failure of the government to introduce some plan for the conscription of wealth along with the measure, but he said he realized that the great need of the Canadian army in France was reinforcements and that would be the main consideration with him in his rejection of Sir Wilfrid Laurier's amendment and his support of the conscription measure. It now appears evident that the conscription bill -vyIII pass and become iaw at an early date. The next question is "What of' Quebec?'" Is there going to be any effort on the part of the government to conciliate and educate the people of Quebec In order to overcome the regrettable opposition which has arisen there? Or will the government allow the wave to roll higher and higher until, as R. B. Bennett predicted, civil war would be the result? Sir Robert Borden has taken a strenuous course in order to provide reinforcements, but he has not displayed such diplomacy as would be considered necessary in handling a situation such as Quebec presents. Britain dealt with a revolution in Ireland even after the best brains in the Old Land' had labored to solve the Irish difficulty. Premier Borden's lack of appreciation of the French-Canadian embroglio does not augur well. A CONSERVATIVE VIEW OF CONSCRIPTION OF WEALTH. Mr. Middleboro, Conservative member for North Grey, in speaking on the conscription measure, said there was no need for conscription of wealth as Canada was already raising enough money for the war. The Western Associated Press report of his speech has it: Mr. Middleboro then dealt with the declaration of Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux to the effect that wealth should first be conscripted. There was. said Mr. Middleboro, no appeal for wealth at the present time, and no suffering for lack of wealth to carry on the war. It was of no use for the sake of getting vengeance on some one who did not happen to have a son to extract something from that man's pocket. The president of the Great War Veterans' association advocated some conscription of wealth, but put conscription of men ahead of it. The use of the phrase "conscription of wealth" was a very general one. If it meant imposition of sufficient taxes upon the people to carry on the war then he was in favor of it. If it meant the collection of taxes, then Canada had conscription of w-alth, for $200,000,-000 was being raised through taxes now itr force. The people of Canada would like to know if this is the opinion .also of Premier Borden and the members of the cabinet. If it is the conscription measure will not be well received in many quarters, Conservative as well as Liberal. The Conservative press in this province is out in favor of making wealth pay a far greater proportion of the immediate cost of the war. The rank and file of the people demand it. There may be no lack of wealth to carry on the war, as Mr. Middleboro states, but that does not mean that Canada should not be taking advantage of the prosperity resulting from the war to pay every possible cent of the cost of the war while it is in -progress. That is what England is doing and that is what Canada should be doing. If such a course is not followed, in the years to come while Canada is paying off her war debt, hundreds of thousands of men who have done their bit and have 1 returned ,twill be paying their burden by means of indirect taxation along with of wealth who can now very well afford to pay heavily. Thef cannot be made to pay too heavily if they are to pay in proportion to the men who quit civil life to enter the arniy in this 'time of stress. There should be some pronouncement by the Borden government on the matter of conscription of wealth. Failure to do so will be construed as fear of the big financial interests of the country. j January last, left an estate valued at i $S,000,000 the greater portion of which is to be divided between his! two sons Angus and Hugh.
