The two great armies are apparently wait- ' "tog for favorable weather to launch offensives and are feeling each other out. The allies seam to have the whip band la this preliminary skirmishing ' land have the Germans so jumpy that the Huns keep the majority of their forces behind even the fourth; line trenches. The Russians seem to have come to ft realisation that] they have been -duped, and-are'making a tielated stand against' tbe German advance on Petro-Srad. That the Russians will be able Co organize to time to save themselves ems doubtful, but the German action efema to have re-awakened a Jighting l epirit in tiio Bolsheviki. Rumania has declared she will not make a separ- ,. ate peace except alone lines acceptable to her. 1 THE LANGUAGE QUESTION IN SASKATCHEWAN IMie majority of the delegates U the Saskatchewan School Trustees' convention made their position very cloar on the language question. Here are the five resolutions on that subject that were passed: "That no person shall be eligible to be elected as a trustee unless he is a British subject. "That no person shall be eligible to be elected as trustee unless he is able to read and write the English language. "That tliis convention urges the provincial government to take the necessary steps to ensure that every child in the province receives adequate and proper instruction in the English ian-guage. "That no language except English be U3ed as the language of instruotlou in any school in the province. ! "That no language except English j be taught during school hours in any school which conies tinder the provisions of the school act." That is a far more advanced posi- Fllgtit-Li'eut.

There has been a conflict of authority at Ottawa for the past two years over the question ol who �would control the returned wounded soldier on his progress tojvards re-establishment as a civilian. ' The old Hughes regime in the militia department has left some %-ery ticklish legacies to the present government. The policy of the old Borden government Was to clip Sir Sam's wings by creating co-ordinate agencies to dispute, or even to supersede his authority. Thus they created the overseas onilltta department, meeting an immediate difficulty by creating a far more serious one. Another strolte of the same character was tho establishment of the military Dual inlithorlty it was', cleat- had to give way td unified control eithor from one source or the other. It was proposed, in 'somo quarters, that tho military hospitals commission should be .expanded into a department of demobilization with a cabinet minister, with portfolio, at its head.

Feeling over this issue was so acute three weeks ago that the resignation ot Sir Jamos Lougheed from the Dominion government, following tho victory for the military authorities which was then impending, was freely predicted.' There hns, however, been an adjustment, the details of which' have alroady been made publio. The new department, of which -Sir James is'the head, is bhnrged -with the task of looking after the soldier and supervising his return to normal conditions of life after his discharge from the army; with the allotment of pensions and the care of'-dependents; and with the re-education of wounded soldiers who' await, in military hospitals, tho moment when they shall regain their civilian status. department,. if it is to accomplish its end, will have to cooperate, on one side of its activities, with the nillltfa department, and on tho other with tho colonization department of which James A.

THE LEGISLATURE'S PROCEEDINGS TThe legislature Is proceeding peaceably. The opposition Is not fractious The war, its winning and its problems are the ohief consideration of all the (members. The soldiers' representatives emphasize the saorlfiaes of our men and urge the need of immediate attention to their welfare-after tiie 'war. The discussion so far has been elevating due to the character of the speeches of the leaders, the soldiers' representatives and Mrs. McKlnney. There doesnU seem to be much difference of opinion. Premier Stewart,.however, did right'in urging that criticism should not be avoided. Criticism is helpful and necessary, as long as it is inspired by honest motives. The captious kind, intended mostly to .-mislead the people or occupy time, is wasteful. Mr. Hoadley the opposition leader, however, will not permit -any government to do anything that Is wrong or detrimental 10 the province, without making a protest/ but he has 'assured the premier that all legislation for the welfare of .the province And J.he( soldiers. ovor.-""seas," will 'have the assistance of the opposition.

We wonder if this chap was one of the advocates of an increase in the sessional indemnity. The Lethbridge Herald says Lethbridge hasn't a baron lord knight, and that Lethbridge doesn't want one. That Is a very clear example of sour grapes on the part of our southern neighbor.-Calgary Al-bertan. t Never worry: we're contented with "a real "'brigadier-general serving in -Franfee/.palgary is welcome to the knight; the brigadier-general is plenty good enough for us.
