The Manitoba Free Press deals very fully with the matter, thus: The Grain Act has been oalletl the charter of farmers' rights In Western Canada.

Their laVjors finally took form in a body of laws and regulations, which were regarded by the grain growers of Western Canada as adequately safegimrd-ing their interests. The very comer-stone of the system of grain handling provided for by the Act was the provision of dealing with the distribution of cars. The principle of the Act was that as between places there should be an equitable porpor-I tionate distribution of cars, while at each point cars were to be supplied In rotation as applied for-one car to each applicant in turn. This provision was resisted by the railways and by the elevator interests: but the Dominion government was unyielding on this point, and the law was strictly enforced by the officials charged with this duty. tJver since the change of govern-! ment in the interests which re- gard this law as to car distribution as unduly intsrfering with their privileges have been conspiring for its destruction, and apparently they have at last gained their end. It has been recognised that under very exceptional conditions the strict^ application of the law should be temporarily suspended-to relieve an elevator In dan-gat of collapse of its load of wheat or to take care of damaged grain. There are provisions to this effect in the Act. Those, who are anxious to hamstring the Act have Tjeen manoeuvring to enlarge the conditions Justifying the suspension of the Act by Including with them congestion at any given point. Once this is accomplished, the benefit of the Aot to the grain growers in a large measure disappears. It will always be possible artlflclally to create conges'tion In any selected district. Under such a law the distribution of cars throughout Western Canada will be made on a basis of strategy,, pull and favoritism, Instead of on the basis of fair dealing between localities and between individuals as well. Four years ago, under cover of an amending bill providing for the suspension of tlie car distribution clause ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR Germany is beginning more than ever to feel the pinch of war times. Most shortages of food are ; reported, and anything in the nature ' of a food luxury is prohibited. The fjneat supply la fast dwindling. The Germans have used up the I crack corps of their army in a last i ' vain endeavor to break through at Verdun. All military observers be-i lieve the failure at Verdun will bring the end of the war very mucli nearer. , French officers predict It will be o% e'r �very shortly. There is one man at least in Germany who has the courage to say ' what he knows to be the truth. Dr. ' Lelbknecht, the Socialist, . created ; great anger In the Reichstag when he arose and denounced Germany's war ; policy, saying that the assassination f of the Archduke at Sarajevo in 1914, ! was welcomed In many parts of Ger-i many as a Godsend. - There Is very Uttle doubt that the riDutch liner Tubantla was torpedoed.

Sir George Foste*- attempted to slip In a further amend- present chance method of securing i providing that in the case of recruits, replaoing it with one that would have more connection with our economic needs. Hamilton, Ont., has a fine record for recruiting, but the old method has about outlived its usefulness there, and now the Hamilton congestion the rules of far distribution could be ignored at the discretion of the Grain Commissioners. The amendment was resisted by all the western Liberal members and by two Conservative members. Dr. Schnafter, Recruiting League has memorialUed Souris, and W. H.

"Wliereas under the present volim-tary system there is great waste of the naUon's resources.
