Germany keep? advancing in Us Russian campaign and the deluded -Bolshevik! ought to realize by this time that Germany's talk about being engaged wholly in a defensive war is a lot of guff. Even since peace was arranged Germany has been more aggressive in Russia than it" had been for months. It is certain-ly only the blind thai will not see. Fetrograd is reported to be threatened with the loss of its chief source of I food supply and if that should develop into an actuality famine will be in its midst very soon. There -continued to be much consideration given to the possibility of Japan entering the struggle by concentrating forces in Siberia and opinion seems to be quite generally in favor amongst the allies, though the United States has not yet intimated that the proposal is acceptable. On the western front the attention of tbe allies seems to be confined to raids by the enemy. The Germans are 'not making any headway with these operations. * On the seas there have *been a few mercantile losses to the allies while mines have entrapped some' of tho smaller vessels of tiie German fleet. promoto peace. Today ho is for the wnr and is helping his country in every way possible. If Hryvin or Ford were pro-Germans it would be a different matter but. they are not. They are pro-.-\inerir;ins and pro-ally. They were on the wrong trail once but. since they are on the right trail now. why should we in Canada., show dislike to them. The Toronto affair leaves our soldier? and our people- open to a wrong interpretation. At one time mil-Ihms of the people of the 1'nited States w-mteiT to keen out of the war. Today most of those millions ur�\ en-thu.iintically supporting the war. Why he hostile to them on account of their former attitude? In this connection we find the prominent Xew York Socialist, Morris I-lill-quii, altering his opinions too. He is finding the truth a little hue In the day but the fact that he has found it is satisfying. Recently speaking to u Soen'ist audience in Xew York he said; Morris Ilillqnit. Socialist leaner, is r:u:.u\l as saying in a speech in New York on Wednesday nigra:"It is now clearer than ever before that autocracy and militarism in Germany and Aus: r ia inust be put down. I want to say to yon, my Socialist friends, thai there is at lea?" one branch of war service into which you can enter with all your he.irts and souls to aid our president in bringing about his ideals of peace. That branch of the war service is the work of scattering propoganda among the laboring classes of Germany and Austria and bringing them to understand that the laboring classes of America are with them. We must all work together for a universal and democratic peace." We ought to welcome these changes of opinion, rather than frown upon them.

Harold Reid, son \ ville Advertising Club, which passes out of existence. posal Is that the government, should work out a scheme by which it could get land as it is needed for the soldiers upon ft fixed price basis. This would involve the fixing of a basic price for vacant land in a defined district, for a period of years. Laud as desired could be taken any time during the period on the terms fixed. In such an area the owner could not retain .vacant land for which there was an application by a soldier seeking a location. The fixing of prices Tor a period would be necessary to prevent a rapid riso in the price as settlement proceeds. There are in the three prajrio provinces some thirty million acres of land, owned by private parties, within easy access ot: the railways. Most of this in land that was bought because the purchaser thought it was worth buying to held. It is therefore, presumably better land than the average. An inspection of the- excellent maps which have been compiled by the natural resources branch of the interior department show vacant land everywhere, and great sireiche* of '-(Lomond Press) The Villager Council called a meeting of the ratepayers last Friday night as a feeler on a proposed bond issue of six thousand dollars 'for Inral improvements.

It. Is also proposed to sink one or two more deep wells In different parts ot the town. The town can easily assume this obligation without embarrassment and the suggested improvements are obviously' needed. In provious years, of the fish produced by the three prairie provlncea. only 15 per cent, was used there, 85 per cent, having been exported t.u the United States.

It would perhaps not be inaccurate to say that there are members of the government who are very much concerned over the magnitude of the proposition; and there have been one of two tentative attempt* to develop the suggestion that the provinces should tackle the task. There will be nothing of this son beyond co-operation where It is necessary by the provinces. Ther� was some discussion about this a1 the recent gathering of provincial premiers here: and the Dominion government knows now. beyond all question, that this la a burden which it must carry itself. Meanwhile one consequence of the emergence of this huge problem Is to make thp between j western provinces less keen than they were to take ove*1 the natural resourcs at this time. They will leave them with the Dominion government: and at the same time leave with it the 'policy of settling the returned soldiers on the land.
