THE PROGRESS of THE WAR . � The situation on the western front today is considerably better from the allies' viewpoint.

WILL THE ALLIES USE JAPAN'S HELPT Jop change, in these lad days ot the Rua-tan agony that they who beet know Russia and the Russians do aot dee-pair of the future. Count Tolstoi, himself a. Russian, and George Ken-nan, the American who exposed the hamefttl horrors ot the Ruaian bureaucracy a generatloa ago, hare already publicly sUted. their fahh for the future. Now these mea ot "hope and forward-looking mind" are Joined by A. J. Sack, director of the Rui-eian bureau of itiformatlon in this country. Speaking ot the Ukrainian revolution against the bolshevlkl, Mr. Sack makes these slgnltloant statements: A few monthF ago one ot the strong papers of Russia delegated a strong publicist to ascertain the nature ot the movement, fn the Ukraine. He found that Its Intellectuals urged the right of the Ukraine to political Independence, but that the plain people were interested In everything else but Ukrainian self-government. ..The Ukrainian legislature Its^f, the "rada^' insisted on proclaiming the Ukrainian republic a member of the confederated republic of Russia. Its opposition to the Bolshevlkl caused its representatives at Brest-Lltovak, who had gone there as niembers of the Russian delegation, to deal Ind*-pendently with Germany. But independence for ITkralne is Impraotlt cable. It must be a vessal of Germany or become a state ot some re-bom Russ republic. '- Hope tor Riusia's tutare resta, Mr. Sack tells ns, in tho virile vitality ot Russian olrillzatlon, which Is the mti' tnal heritage ot all classai and nationalities which have-been parts ot the Russian commonwealth^ After partins tor a while, tTkralnla, Siberia, Cauoasia, the Cossack country and the Baltic provinces win again reunite. Economic secessltlea forbid them to . try to exist separately. �>ren the noa-Russian nationalities themselves, this Russian feels oozUident, will prefer fellowship with Russia democratlse4 to vassalage to Germany.

Bushldo, the Japanese code ot honor, makes the betrayal ot a friend or ally one ot the most infamous ot acts. Americans, uiftortunately, have for a number of years been "fed up" with the notion that Japan covets California and other Pacific states and has long been preparing to make war on the United Statfs in order to gain territory for expansion on this oontisent but it is now known that this belief has been fostered mainly by German propagandists and Anglophobist papers like those of the Hearst press which delight to-do the Kaiser's' dirty work because they believe that In doing it they are injuring Britain. Tho strong probability is that the Japs have no more thought of attacking the States than Americans have in attacking Japan. It Is the duty of the to do what it can to populariaa the belief In Japanese Integrity and' honor. It. should ba. an agreeable duty, for the Japs are our friends as well as onr allies. i They-havsi'-provea-themselves suoh 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. Wa learn from the/ Montreal Herald that one .of these Japs in Canadian khalcl was awarded the Victoria Cross (after hla death) n for distinguished valor, end that' several others have won decorationsifor valuable service in the field.
