(THE PROGRESS of THE WAR There can be little doubt now that Russia 'will choose the right path and Will stand by the allies to continue the light sgafnst Prussian autocracy. Some glimmering of the real meaning of the jrar is at last being obtained by the peasant people of Russia, and it Is most probable that the Russian troops Jrlll resume their offensive shortly. Germans themselves give testimony to their treachery In plotting armistices with the Russian army, In the pamphlets they are dropping into the Russian lines thanking them for the opportunity of transferring much needed troops to the -western front. But despite this transfer of troops the advantage on the western front remains with the allies, and they are Increasing these advantages day by day. The Germans have reasoned with true Hun logic that it would be Impossible for the allies to conduct a drive at more than, one point on the western front at the tame time, but in this they hare been cruelly disappointed, as testimony of captured German officers goes to prove. These German officers testify to the breakdown of the' German morale under the allied offensive and particularly through their complete air supremacy which harrasses the Germans beyond endurance. THE RESULTS Of THE WATER CONFERENCE. The -Herald desires to congratulate the public spirited men who interested themselves in the problem of water supplies for the farmers in the first place and who brought about the most important conference held yesterday. We also wish to thank on behalf of the farmers of Western Canada in general, and Southern Alberta in particular, the men who came long distances to grapple with the problems before the conference. We believe the conference has resulted in a very direct emphasis being placed on the need of a solution of the problems facing thousands of our farmers who wish to branch out Into mixed farming but are prevented owing to lack of an adequate supply of water for stock and domestic purposes on their farms. It the conference -had done nothing more than to convince government officials of this need it �would have accomplished much. But it went a great deal further, and assembled a mass of information and set in motion the agencies for gathering much more, and the result will be, wa believe, a concerted effort long proper and methodical lines to help the farmer In a genuine practical way to secure a water supply �where his own money and experience has gone for naught in past trials. The evidence of the success of the conference may not be apparent immediately, but there were enough government authorities present yesterday : to start research work and practical tests which should lead to much if the men at the head of the governments heed what these men take home with them in the way of an ap-' preciatlon of the problems before the convention. The Herald would respectfully suggest to the Alberta government that it can undertake no more valuable work-during Its new term than that indicated at the conference yesterday. Alberta's prosperity for years to come rests upon our farmers, and their prosperity iB to a great extent bound up in mixed farming methods, which in turn are practically entirely dependent on good supplies of water, easily available. racy the pioneer and heratd of whose advance against the common foe of civilisation and democracy he Is. "Behind him there are 10,000,000 more," a Frenchman said, as that strong and simple American soldier, unknown to France a few days before, now the pillar of a peoples' hope, stood at the tomb of Napoleon. Things memorable forever, surpassing all her proud centuries of achievement, France has done in this war for freedom. Now the nation she helped to make free joins her in battling for the freedom of the world. Her hands will be hold up. America is in the fight to Its prosperous end. There are "10,000,000 more." if they are needed. Great Britain, France, Italy, America, standing together! Old jealousies, grudges of history, are as if they had never been. For all this monstrous savagery, cruelty, destruction, of tho war, we see Time bringing a fairer order, nations made one in devotion to liberty, millions of men ready to drink the great sacriment of death to save liberty and to bring enduring peace. A French writer, changing for the better Louis XIV.'s boast, "Thore are no longer any Pyrenees." thought-fuly and truly says: "There is no longer an ocean. . . . Henceforth there is but one human race in the Old World as in the New." At this moment a great American statesman is bringing wise counsel to the perplexed Russian people. There is a common danger, a common duty. Sharing In It. the many peoples, soldiers of differing tongues but one In an impregnable purpose, are unconsciously preparing a new world of nations that understand ono another, who have fought the good fight that other generations may live In peace and freedom. CRITICISMS OF GOVERNMENT JUSTIFIED. The conscription bill Is certain to pass the House on the second reading. That Is made plainly evident by thP speeches during the past few days In the debate on the bill by prominent Liberals, who have supported the government at the cost of a break with their leader. But while these Liberals hare heartily supported the conscription bill, they rightly have criticised the government along several lines, chiefly for the manner in which they have sprang the conscription proposal on the public without proper preparation, and for their bungling and laxity in many Bnea with regard to the conduct of the w�r. Much pt the opposition outside of the prorlnoe of Qnebec, to the conscription measure (and there is no lack of tt) has been stimulated by the suddenness with which the proposal was announced, more particularly in view of the premier's continued protestations that there never would be conscription. , Premier Borden mutt hare known the situation with regard to recruiting before he ever went to England. He knew that recruiting had slackened off, and that there was danger that his pledge of 500,004 men would not be fulfilled. Had he properly promulgated a policy of selective conscription he would have saved the government much of the opposition that today exists. A proper publicity campaign to educate public opinion, would, if conducted with snap and rigor, have in a month placed the public in the position of realising the tremendous necessity of a proper selective conscription. There were from time to time conflicting statements made concerning recruiting by members of the government. Some were very optimistic and many of them were confusing and tended to lull the public into a belief that Canada was raising more men than could be bandied. This did not tend to prepare the public mind tor compulsory measures. Now that these have been proposed, however, and the necessity tor them bo apparent, the proper course is to support the government proposals. The bill will pass in the House and likely it will be made effeottve as soon as possible. 4 years old, and then committed suicWo by slashing his throat and by shout Ing himself in the head. Anton Lang, the "Chrlstus" of Obor amtnergau's passion play, has finally been called to the colors, according to a dispatch to the Berlin Tageblatt, from Augsburg, Bavaria. Herr Lang hitherto has seen no service, although It has been reported repeatedly that he has been killed in the war. It is understood that Sir John Wll son, who has resigned from the Toronto News, has aspirations to join tho government in the partial reconstruction which Is anticipated. Sir John quite possibly may get as far as the senate. His entry to the cabinet, how-erer is very unlikely. tmi IST'D 1S73 STANDARD BANK Or CANADA hcao or nee  towonto SAFETY DBPOSIT BOXES are now.installed at this Branch for the custody of valuable papers, etc,, affording safety and privacy.
