Tae Capture of Gallipot! is a long step for- ,vaid in the CSEPS'gr, Both the land are forging steaaily and sea force ahead. In Flanders tho German attacks have apparently ceased. quieting news that German cruisers have reached Dunkirk and have hom- harded that town was sent out bj the French war office, fcut was denied again by the British headquarters. The German ships may be there, but it may be the result of a ruse by the British to draw more of the rots out of their hole. The call has come for more Can- adians and a. large detachment is to .be sent over at once, to followed probably by the entire third and fourth contingents. Canada may yet have men fighting the Em- pire's battles. JUST A MATTER OF SAFETY PINS Here is a little morsel from the Public Accounts Committee at Otta- wa that hasn't had very Tlde licity, though it tells the tale of bis profit on war T. MoNicoil of the J. L. Garland H. M. liyndniau, tho votorun 1st of Great Britain, has sent a letter to 31. Clomeuoinu, the Krunch soolal- ist louder and eillfor of VKomnie En- chaine. in which he says that he be- lieves It nil the British socialists, in- eluding Tttblans, wore to put the Question to a voto. a Inreo majority would declare for war to the finish. Keir Hardle. Hnmsay Mncdonald and A. Anderson, all members of par- liament, and Bruce Glastor have pro- duced the Impression abroad, says rivmmiau, that Uritish socialists op- pose tho war almost to the extent of But he denied hat these men whfifu he tho 'Scottish pcac-e-at-any-prlce gang." IRVC any influence outside the Inde- >endent Labor party, and even in that he claims, their iutluence is small. He explains. "There is not shadow of doubt that the over- whelming majority of workers in this island are on the side of the war. Hundreds of thousands ot the two million soldiers now with the colors are not unskUicd and ill-paid workers, but from the ranks of the trade union- ists. There are enlisted no fewer than 200.000 miners, whose wages at the time of their enlistment were eight shillings a day." Ono of the arguments ottered in defence o; an election duriug I he war is that an election was held in tho Tjnited States during the Civil War. That is a very weal; dzfsnce. The United States has a constitution providing explicitly for an election on a certain date every four years, and President Lincoln did not pos- ss the power to prevent an elec- in while the war was in progress. ._ Canada the government of the day taes the date of the election. The e of the present parliament does .t expire until the fall of 1916. to the overned in the case of ection need not TO held until 1916 s to the feeling regarding elections Britain, a London says: Jthough the act passed by parlla- .rat in 1911 would, require a general ection this year, it is accepted iu Company, Ottawa, who sold- to the Two Macs, or Ottawa, some ot the materials entering into the manufac- ture of the iras called fcy Sir. drrell to testify as to the cost of 57000 worth ot safety pins charged to the government by the firm. Mr. McNicol! ursed that he should not be called upon to make public business secrets of his flrm and in this attitude he was sustained by Conservative members on the com- mittee. Mr. Can-ell, when he could not get'lthe evidence in the regular form from .the witness, produced a dozen safety pins which he' had pur- chased over -the counter in a locaii retail store for five cents a dozen. The witness admitted that these were the same as were put in the "house- wives." Two hundred thousand dozen were charged for at the rate cents per dozen, llr. Carveli deeiar- .ed that, according to the evidence already braugat out, the Garland Co. Hade a profit of about 24 per cent on them, and the Two Macs netted a Bimilar profit.

The Winnipeg Teiegrais, a Ihe-wool Tory journal, has read th Ottawa Citizen out of the party. I lays: The Ottawa Citizen was Con- servative until the last Ontario general election. In the midst of the campaign, seeing the tide of opinion setting .against its candi- dates in Ottawa, it sold' itself to the Uberals. It has since sup- ported Mr. Rowell in Ontario and Sir Wilfrid.
