The greater part of the German effort has been directed towards Uie Fort of Vaux, the posses-aion of which has been said to be in both French and German hands recently. The Germans with heavy Infantry assaults have taken the wood at Cordeaus. The^ Russians are keeping up a ateady attack upon the Turks on the 'Asiatic coast of the Black Sea^ anu �with considerable success. Their warT ships keep a continual bombardment of Turk positions. A Norwegian barque has been tor-ipedoed without warning. Seven Americans aboard were rescued. Increasing prospects of a naval agbt are apparent. if uniteo states and mexico Just a little later than two years ago now Xlnited States troops landed In Mexico, seizing the customs house at Vera Cruz as a retaliatory measure. President Huerta having offered an Insult to the Stars and Stripes for which President Wilson decided he should be punished. This was the beginning of Huerta's downfall, the U. S. president then deciding that Villa was better than Huerta. Today IT. S. troops have again invaded Mexico, hundreds of miles away-from Vera Cruz, and have orders to get Villa "dead or alive." Villa is no longer recognized as the provisional liresldent of the unlucky southern republic, Carranza having replaced him in that capacity in the eyes of the :United States. What does It all portend? Where Is President W^Uson's watchful waiting policy with regard to Mexico going to lead? - The United Stages is sitting on a powder magazine right now. Carranza is sitting quietly by, hoping, no doubt, that VUla will be taken out dead. But one false move might easily precipitate a situation which would force armed intervention on the part of the "D. S. in Mexico. TTie "gringo" Is Tiot in good standing in Mexico at the, present moment. Col. Slocum's litrte force is treading , precarious ground. It will be interesting to watch what will happen," And If armed! Intervention does result, we may safely sav that a large proportion- of Americans will welcome the'decision. �For thero is a mess in ilexico that two years of rebellion has not cleaned up, a mess in which Uncle Sam will find he will yet have to take a hand. Ing or financing. Me had to take Ignorant men and train them and build up an organization and a sys. toA. He had his strenuous times but on Uie whole, considering his inexperience, ho built a largo concern. All this training makes a man resourceful. He has to find the simplest, the easiest, the most effective way of doing things and getting things done. It is tlie story of nearly all successful men. On the other hand Gen, Alderson hasbeen all hls'Ufe part of a machine. Everything he' has done or has had to do Is carefull>- laid down in printed text books. He must follow them to the letter. When anything not provided In the text book happens, men educated in this way are usually at sea. Wien two men trained in exactly opposite schools are brought together, a conflict is certain, and this is evidently what happened between Colonel Currie and General Alderson. From the commanding officer of one of the Canadian regiments we learn that the trouble between the two officers began on Salisbury Plains. Colonel Currie was ordered to put his tents where they would be in a nice line but the men would be in the I water. Instead, he took upon himself the responsibility of placing them a tow yards out of line to avoid the swamp. When General Alderson's Staff officer remonstrated and Jtold up the regulations laid down for encami>-ments. Colonel Currie said: "Damn your drill book and red tape, this is not a show camp. 1 intend to place my men where they can maintain their health with 100 per cent, always on parade, fit to fight, instead of in the hospital with colds and pneumonia," In this episode we have an example of the great weakness of the British army, and the difference between army and navy administration" which resulted in navy efficiency and army un-preparedness. It is not the fault of our splendid officers and men. Our system is wrong. The politicians DISTRICT NEWS NCfflCREEK (From thoEcl^o) DROP THAT GUN! -(From N. Y. World.) F)ICKED UP IN ASSINGIZIZII FOR THb BUSY MAN During 1915, came to Canada. 4S,oGG .Immigrants punish any army officer who dares to raise his voice against red tape and incompetence in superior organization. Lord Beresford, perhaps because his love for gallery applause made him callous to the threats of the politicians in the Admiralty, exposed weaknesses. The nation backed him up. "Efficiency" became the watchword of the navy and the result is the organization which has done such magnificent work since the war began. Prom the information which has come through to us from England, both arms of the service are -still greatly handicapped by political interference. We shall not get satisfactory results until the lawyers and philosophers in the British cabinet and administration offices-the men responsible for our unprfeparednesa- are replaced by capable business men, soldiers and sailors. Would any sane investor buy shares in even a candy shop managed by the present British cabinet? It is not the nation-it is the leaders who are at fault. A feeling of dissatisfaction is steadily growing. In the,interests of Canada air Robert Borden should make strong representations ott this point. A change will have to come if we are to bring the war-of whicli we British are innocent victims-to the successful conclusion bur sacrifices deserve. Women are now offering to take the pla6es of men on Manitoba farms. J. B. Richards, general auditor of the London and Port Stanley railway, has been appointed manager and treasurer, succeeding F. C.
