ROUND THE CIRCLE .OF THE WAR i The evacuation of Lemberg, the Galician fortress, by the Austrians, is confidently expected. Down through. !Galieia and BuKowina the Russian ad- f Vance has been so extensive that thi [Aus-trians are rapidly being: crowded out. The Russians are now ten miles from the Rumanian border, having I taken another Butowinian town. with j' several thousand prisoners, and hav- i ing surrounded a considerable j trian force. On the northern portion I of the Russian front the Russians have ueen checked by .the furious counter- 1 attacks of the Germans, and Austrians. Teutonic forces-give-signs "of actlV- i ity in Greece- The Bulgarians have i made'some advance, while German forces'haye been active. 1 In France the Germans have made itoew attempts, tola time in the vicinity lof Champagne, but -without success. liTHE FATE OF Y.

The association" orres city on a mortgage and f unpaid interest on this amount, 1 and as prospects are not bright that Hhe institution can pay off even .the i overdue interest, -without attacking the principal, the city has given ord- ers that the guarantors of the debt should be sued for the obligation. The city is taking the only possible step To postpone the evil day -would only piling on more interest charges. Better settle the matter now. But' to expect that the guarantors should shoulder the load is expecting too iniich. We don't be- lieve the city means it that way.- The guarantors put their names to the guarantee document as good citizens hoped the institution would "wea- ther the gale; they never expected to make, a cent out of the transaction for themselves and it would not be right that they should lose But the people who should worry the fatp, of the Y. M. C. A. should do some .worrying mighty quick- and gat scttoir-to SCTC tike-insti- tution. If ever there "was a time in the .history of the city when a Y.StC. A. -was badly needed it is now.! On July i the bars of the city will close, and that is the time when the Y. M. C.

Mr. Bvant'tells us we.uso'38.grain ore in October to less .than one in other months or.a average of 12, In order to to the market. Wo do the with rail- way labor and tonnage. We should decide right now that wo w not blame the railways if they are unable ;to handle our grain In" the rush season. The. (armor .who lays awake damning the railways for not providing cars while ho is threshing: tiiv fall should make a vow never to do it again. It would be a blessing in disguise tf the railways were to make a ruling that In future they will carry no more than one- twelfth of any season's crop in one month of that crop year. Mr. Evans has shown that the railways could move three times our ordinary crop with the available equipment if used the year round Instead of being rushed in three months in the fall and left practically Idle the rest of tho year. Damning the railways should be a RICKED UP IN FOH THE BUSY MA_N thing or the past after hearing Mr. Evans. Mr. Evans does not attempt a pub- lio solution for the west's big prob- lem. But hJs obvious intention is a solution that would result in Western Canada's grain moving out in a steady stream, every month in the year, as he world's markets will absorb How can this be done? Obviously by enabling the farmer, to feed his crop out in that manner, holding1 his crop and marketing: it moata by month. The farmer may laugh and say this is mpossible, but It is just as impos- sible to normal times, mil- Ions of bushels more than can be absorbed oil the world's market with- out forcing-down the price and'bring- ng-the teast'amount of money. The 'armer has been pleased to damn the 'manipulators" for forcing down the price. If the market is glutted, if the miller at the other end of the deal won't buy OB fast as the product "Is offered to him, the price sags and the manipulator couldn't kelp it II he wanted to1. The Jaw of supply and demand sets the price, and the far- mer the supply end. He controls the tltuaHon to a very great extent. Now how is the farmer to regulate ha inpply factor of the aquation? If every .farmar were to spread his sell- nj OTer-a ten-months' period, evenly, le would find that he had effected a At change in the world prices. It that Canada "dumping" in certain seasons, while, other countries bllow the more deliberate method at spreading their marketing over many months. Canada's policy [epresses the market, and other coun- come to expect Canada's may season of dumping and price ireaking. .Canada must change her policy to one of even distribution, aid -there .lies the farmer's problem, t isn't his alone. Indeed it is more the problem of the Canadian banker, .nd manufacturer, and wholesaler and etailer, for who can deny that all the latter depend on the farmer? If tie bankers, manufacturers, whole- others cannot evolve a cheme to help the farmer refrain from "damping" his grain, this me- hod which loaes Canada millions of ollars annually will continue. The armer can't do It without the co- peratton. .of the other fellows. Go to gentlemen, find the solution and if the remedy, to work.
