Here there is confldpnce that the resolution to warn Americans off armed merchantmen will he defeated. .�Administration authorities are also confident that they may herd enough votes to defeat it. which would leave tho president with a free hand. The president is determined that there shall be no compromise ou his attitude towards the new submarine warfare. Tho great fight around Verdun has almost entirely ceased. The remnant of the great Brandenburgs, Germany's finest soldleo', are trapped in tho little tort of Douamont which is completely surrounded by the French. The continued pause in the big battle Is leading to speculation as to what Germany is now planning, it is believed that a fresh and more determined attack may bo made on Verdun, PREMIER SCOTTS TACTICAL BLUNDER Abuse of an opponent or critic, no matter how unfair he may have been, and especially when the opponent is a clergyman, never appeals to the fair minded public. Hon. 'Walter Scott should have' Withdrawn the much criticised Saskatchewan school law amendments, without referring to the Rev. Mr. McKlnnon at all. In using the strong language that he did the premier did not help himself in the least. Sir Redmond Robiin used to be very abusive, too, but he never gained any friends by his resort to hitter and violent denunciation. jbc falling back. People asked. "Why are there not British relnforccmi'nts there?" But .loffre and the other allied lenders know Oennany's slrenmh and her weakness. They had reckoned with the necessity of meeting just such an attack as that on Vprdun. .\nd now what do we see? The British have not (iron sitting iiiuietly by while I'^rauco bore tho brunt of (ho fight. They have done the one 'pensihie thing. Thry have li'U.i-'thencd : the Hritish lino in the north of Fratice. Dispatrho.s yosterda.v toUl I us that the southern extroinlfy ol jlho British line in France has now lieen pushed from Lens as fur south , as the Somme in the vicinity of j Amiens. This means tiiat the ilritish have taken over from the l-Tench the defence of another 10. miles or line, and that many French have been relieved for duty elsewhere. Thus all tho l?rltish are under one head and tocether, so that the lines of ooni-municatlon are not crossing with those of the French, and the French are still together in charge of their ! part of the line. No doubt Britain will shortly take over anoUier 40 or .'lO miles of line and keep extending it until she is liolding her full share. I During the fall and winter Germany evidently has endeavored to break up the effectivene.'s of the Anglo-French , troops by opening up new war zones in the Suez, along tho Serbian front and elsewhere, always with the idea of disrupting the main defence in tVance when she would step in and ;win a victory such as she would dear-|ly have loved to win at Verdun. But ithe Anglo-French were not caught 'napping. The allied line in France and Flanders is stronger today than it has over been; it has greater reserves both of men and ammunition; it is ready to strike when the opportune time comes. It is doubtful if Germany will give up her hope to crush France. There will be other attacks such as the Ver-,dun battle. It will be a world sur-; prise if they win any of tiiom. Germany is playing the only tactics which have any chance of registering a win. but that they will succeed is pretty well answered by the Verdun tight. Germany is wearing herself av;ay against a "rock. The allies have the upper hand. bill. That man must surely have had the courage of his convictions. Question: Is ho marrlod or la he an Oid bach.' "Well, if wheat goes down, flour goes down, but this sympatliollc drop Is poor consolation to a province that depends on Its wheat tor Us wealth." Thus the Calgary Xews-Telcgram which, however, cannot see why a province which depends on wheat for its wealth, should ask for a wider market for that product; But then tho News-Telegram is very generously endeavorhiK to protect the farmers who raise the wheat from themselves. r)ICKED UP IN ASSINGCIZIIl FOR THE BUSY MAN Lethbrldge refuses to save daylight this summer. Evidently Lethbridg-ians subscribe to the words of the ' popular song: i"Oh, it's nice to get up In the morning Eut it's nicer to lie in bed." GERMAN TACTICS HAVE AGAIN FAILED There are many expert writers In war matters these days who say Verdun will be tho decisive battle ot the war. There are many other peo-Vla who think so. There is every indication that Germany has returned to her old plan-to crush France by delivering blow upon blow without counting the cost. Having crushed Franco by taking Verdun, shattering the French defence, and then opening ber way to Paris, she would thereupon place France under the iron heel, turn on Russia and wipe her out, and then at England. There was anxiety in many quarters a few days ago when tho German sledge-hammer blows had taken An Alberta boy won the V. C. and ' fell heir to $50,000 all within a month. Good fortune runs in streaks just thf: same as hard luck, though most of us have experience only with the latter. Can it be that the man Bruner with whom the Saskatchewan Conservatives are hobnobbing is the same Bruner who said that the German Hag would be flying over Regina within three months after the outbreak of the war?
