THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR � The Germans are still massing great Bombers ot men and'great quantities t material behind the lines on the irastom front, but there Is as yet no Lldt aa to when they ore likely to com-Bienca their much adrertlsed offensive. The Canadians on Saturday conduct-A one ot the most, successful raids |b tlieU' history, taking a score vr more f brisoaers, demolishing a wide section of trenches and putting many ot tke �nemy to rout, on the Lens front; The all Russian congreaa of Soviets Beting in Moscow haa finally ratified fha peace trntf between Russia and Oannany, t}ie Aii(l0-8UMi breed ond has made^ it one livtitB aoul tdr liberty. In their daw-toubd unll^ ot spirit the kindred natldtti (0 forward; with Prance and Italy, alsolorera of troodom, marching to the aottnd of 'a trumpet that shall Merer call retreat,* but lead thorn to the Tietol-y by which they 'make men free.'" Canadians join cord tally In sucli espre^slods of new-fottitd Mendshli-j between the Engllsh-speabtng poo-pie^, says the Ottawa Journat-Presc', and feel that in tbis fospoct at least, the war has been a great gain. And we Iii this counlry, rvho kn(\w the per-pie of the United States pretty woli', are confident that they will not stop short ot doing their best to win the war. The German niluds which profess to think that the United States will not be much to reckon with will bo enlightened before the fighting fs over. But let ua not flatter ourselves In Canada that we are Btralniag ourselves In our military effort. If we>ln this country, were to put as many men un der arms as the people of Knglandi Scotland and Wales, not 400,000 would beourqiiota.but nearly a million; and the quota of the Uulted States would be twelve million troops. jMONDAY, MARCH 18f 1918 Congress will ^pond $5,000,000 In the purchase of seeds for farmers.

The Calgary Herald Is^a supporter ot the Union Government. The Ud-monton Bulletin Is strongly opposed. �Ert80RSHIP QR.NOT,: LET'S HAVE THE TRUTH. . Atmi unkind things Vore �>out tho censorship ia Canada at the To-' rum yesterday. On ihe |.wbole they were deeervad.. There is not the least �k)ubt that the eenaorahip- In Canada has ba^ the effect of lulling the peo-fie into a f alseiense of aequrlty. For Cbr�e years after the outbreak ot the iffi the newspapers wereTplaced in the ibiiae position that if they printed any ews other than what might be called ^ay" they would be hurting voluntary recruiting. In the long run we kelieve that,this has had a derogatoir effect It is no use to print harrowing details of reverses, but the factB of those* reverses should be given to the peopfe. It willjielp to stiffen their determination rather than cause them to be "down In the month." ,, There Is much to be Hia cenfiorsbip both IniBrltain and in Can-ad8r r We are entering the most serious phase of the war. Let us enter it with a true understanding of the sit nation as it exists. Sot with a false per4peclive in which we can see no- companies. It Is to be gubjected^o in-. ; � ,,; creaaed tatea partly for the �oeneflt of thing but that the. allies are'.progres- the raUways ind partly as a dlscrlm-alng finely until we .wake up to the hnatory tax lor-the-benefit of all Can fact' that they may not be. Let's have ada." contrast the comments ot the two papers on the�otlori of the govemmBnt in granting the railway rate Increases. The Calgary Herald says: "Having decided that the C. P. R. must pay back practically all the increased revenue that comes to It through freight and passenger rate mcreasea, the gorernmeht feels Justified in sanctioning the advances ordered by the rtUlway conuulaslon. The decision certainly renibves a major objection to the increase in rates, and if the government intends to take over the other lines further objection wlU'be rkmoved While the* Bulletin view* it this way; ,....... The Domlnfon government have resisted' alllce tie demand that they nationallie the>rallways and the protests from thri Western provinces agatUBt mn increase in freight ;rates. The increase io to be allowed, the govemnient to'put a tax on railway earnings whlc^b. will take from the C.P.K, the extra amount ot revenue It would derive from the increase. This company is to be reconciled to this loss Qt expected "melons" by being excused ?rom paying war profits and Income taxes, to ^hlch It was hitherto subject. The effect upon the patrons ot the railway companies will be precisely the. same with the government taking part of the proceeds of the In^ creased rates as though the companies got all tlie moiiey. The only difference, 80 .far as Western Canada is concerned--and" It Is the part of Canada particularly concerned-Is that Instead of being burdened with.heavier freight rates for the Bscluslve benefit of the tbe tmth. ''LITHBRIOOE STRENGTHENS POSITION AS AGRICULTURAL CENTRE. i . There are many things happening to prove tliat Lethbrldge la becoming more and more the centre of a great sirlealtural dtatrlet, but perhapa' two �rei>ts of last week' go further in tiral proof than aoytbliig that has happened tor aorae time. On Saturday the,Southern'Alberta IV^ooi Orowen' Aisociatlon decided to open up a permanent office in Leth-feridge with a permanent paid seeie> tary to look after their co-operative at-^In. This association is the' lariest ' In Canada In point ot owaerahlp _ ot Sheep^.; -: > On Saturday also, members of flv^ 9T six local U.F.A. brganisatlons thronghout the district met here and decided to form a district association, tbo first ot its kind in Alberta, and it la, the intention of the new organita' iion^ it possible, to engage a perma-ntat sectvtary l� a.permaaent office kare for the purpose ot looking fttei the business ot the members done/ln'a .o-operatlTO'.way/''" .s'"* ';V: , These two facts, taken together with the fact that Souther|i Alberta is at the present time receiving the cream ot tbe great influx ot settlers, stamps Lethbrldge {ia,o:(�e. of most active agricultural centres in the'west. Keep your eye on Lethbrldge and Southern Alberta In the next two or three years. THIS CONTINENTS SHARE IN THE* GREAT WAR. Sir Robert Borden when in Washington last week Is said to have made tbe remark that Canada has sent'nearly 400,000 men to Europe, and that it the Umted Stales 'does proportionately as much, the Republic will ship over tho ' Allahtlo 5,600,900. Commenting on this, the Boston Transcript says: :'-We h^pe It may not be necessary , .for, the Upltod.States to raise the num- fcer-ftiofitloned by the Canadian; pra-mier, ibut h^ may be confident that the Republic will he as resolute as the : Dominion to do whateynr may be re-(QuIred ot her for tho.overtlirow ot the 1^ ^^{|potism that .would dominate tlw ' yrprlfi. 'Not,^'.o�!thp,Bi�(|llah-8peak-'Int peoples wjil fltnoh.'' Thay are uult-d i^i^w aa they never wer�. The breath pt'dtmocracy has bees i�r�athed Into Eo far as the Herald can learn, this part-.of Western Canada does not seem to be greatly concerned. It is prosperous "and la willing to pay the increase, hut it Is concerned in seeing Tho U. S. Senate has deprived Finance Secretary McAdoo of control of private enterprise securities issues. An Illness of a tistt and.they will have is right to protest. People today are not caring much whether tb.p C.P.R. ! making lUOnar or not' It the company la breaking even they qught to be eatisfled.
