Germany keeps advancing in its Russian campaign and the dcluded^Bolshevikl ought to reai-lifl by this time that Germany's talk about being engaged wholly in a defensive war is a lot of guff. Even �luce peace was arranged Germany has been more aggressive in Russia than It' had been for months. It Is certainly only the blind that will not see.

The New York World's strictures upon the reception given Mr. Brj-an in Toronto should be respected. U has always been strongly pro-ally and on many occasions criticized the course of Mr. Brj-an as secretary ot state but it recognizes that Mr. Bryan Is a loyal supporter of the allied -cause now and is naturally Indlsnint at the treatment meted out to him.

' The Dominion Alliance people were certainly foolish to Invite Mr. Bryan to Toronto and to persist Iri having him come, when it was known newspapers were rousing prejudices and trying to create trouble.
