THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The situation or. tiie western front today J* considerably better from the allies' viewpoint. The Cerman drive, ays the French statement, has been verywhere checked, and the attack* ars slowing down because of the weakening of tie enemy through stupendous losses. The Germans undoubtedly have now occupied Noyon -which the French evacuated yesterday. The Germans also claim to be before Albert. This would represent an advance of about SO niiles since the drive began.

It cheers the heart, says an exchange, in these sad days of the Russian agony that they who be�t know Russia and the Russians do not dee-pair of the future. Count Tolstoi, himself a. Russian, and George Ken-nan, the American who exposed the �hauieful horrors of the Riueian bureaucracy a generation ago, hare already publicly stated, their faith for the future. Now these men of "hope and forward-looking mind" are joined by A. J. Sack, director of the Russian bureau of information In this country. Speaking of the rjjerainian revolution against the bolshevik!, Mr. Sack makes these significant statements: A f".v months ago one of the strong ptc, �'.> of Russia delegated a strong jia>;::. :-;t to ascertain the nature of ih' :.,..vement in the Ukraine. He fj.;-! that its intellectuals urged the rijrh: of the Ukraine to political inde-pttiiietici.'. but that the plain people were interested in everything else but n-trainian self-government. The T'krahv.i.n legislature ltsejf, the "rarfa," insisted on proclaiming the Ukrainian republic a member of the confederated republic of Russia. Its to the Bolshevik! caused Its representatives at Brest-Lltovsk, wiin had gone there as members of the Russian delegation, to deal independently with Germany. Bnt Independence for Ukraine is impraotl* cable. It must be a vassal of Germany or become a state of some reborn Russ republic. Hope for Russia's future resta, Mr. Back tells us, in the virile vitality of Russian civilization, which 2s the mutual heritage of all classes and nationalities -which have- been parts of the Russian commonwealth^ After parting for a while, Ukrainla, Siberia, Caucasia, the Cossaclt country and ths Baltic provinces will again reunite. Economic necessities forbid them to try to exist separately. Even the non-Russian nationalities themselves, this Russian feels confident, will prefer fellowship with Russia democratized to vassalage to Germany. ten in the Provincial House, was defeated, i Robert A.

They -have- proven themselves such in this war-not only as a nation, but individually. At the beginning of the war hundreds of Japanese in British Columbia volunteered for service in the Canadian army. Two hundred of them were drafted into different Canadian units which went overseas. We learn from the, Montreal Herald that one of these Japs Wade Toole, editor of the Farmers' Advocate of London, a graduate of the class of 1911 at the Ontario Agricultural college, lyis been appointed professor of animal husbandry at the O.A.C.. in succession to Prof. George E.

When Hon. Charles Stewart stepped into the office of premier at Edmonton last October, he did go with the confidence of the whole mass of Alberta electors behind him. Through the years of his connection with the Alberta government he haa not earned tho reputation for being a hidebound party man. And his term in office to date baa indicated that, now the reins are in | bis hands, he does not intend to be | more partisan. If anything, he Is ; less so. He accepts the criticism of : the opposition without attaching to j it any effort to make it appear parti- i zt-.ii. The that tlio criticism, has. a tendency to be more construct- i ive than destructive. Which is the only kind of criticism worth considering, after all. Another thing about Premier Stewart that appeals to Albertans Is his \ frankness. The other day some railway promoters wafted on him. and they didn't have the pleasant session railway promoters usually have on Buch missions. Premier Stewart handled them without gloves. He . didn't lose, any popularity by saying what lie thought about the railway scheme proposed. In the matter of the extension of the tc'cpliOTie system in Alberta ho made some more frank statements, on Monday. He said that rural prosperity had led to a groat demand far ex-*��*k)n. of rural Hues, but the xovera- Farmers are at work on the land all over Sunny Southern Alberta.

Captain C. E. Amphlett, M.C., who has been overseas ginca the. outbreak of the war, Is back in Calgary on brief leave of absence.
