The great German armies on the nanders front have lain practically Inert for tlio past -week, save where this matter for years to como. The very idea oC hauling coal over linlf,\a continent, from the mtnosv' in Fonnsy'l. vnnlft to Manitoba, Is ot itself a rid Iculous proposition, when it is considered that good burning coal can bo had in the neighboring provinces ot Saslcatchewan and Alberta. AMENDMENTS TO DIVORCE LAWS NOW IN ORDER. Thcrctotoro the Canadian Senate had a monopoly on the grantlns of dlvorceg, when tho Interested pnrtios did not circumvent the monopoly h.v tho rather simple method ot takinK up residence In the U.S.. wlierp the too easy laws were made to servo the purpose. Now. however, the Canadian high courts have ruled that tho Province ot Manitoba has the ri.ght to grant divorces, and It nppoari as If nmendments to our divorce laws would be In order giving all provinces the same right. Keviewing the Manitoba case, Toronto Saturday Xight comments as follows: The Jtanltoba Court of Appeal has rendered a unanimous judgment In the case of Walker vs. Walker, holding that the Court of King's Bench o� .Manitoba has jurisiUction to grant decrees of divorce for all causes recognized by the laws of England on July 1. 1S70. and duly incorporated Into the laws of .Manitoba in ISSS.

By tliese attacks the British were able to improve their lines and take prisoners. There is practically no �change ia the situation so far as the FlandATS front is concerned. A LESSON IN ECONOMY '.FReM THE OLD COUNTRY. �Writing to a friend In the city, a lady In the Old Country says, "We are- pretty well rationed now for most things-. We have cards^ for meat, bacon, tea, butter and margarine. 'We cannot buy cream -which -we miss very muchi Oiir meat allowance is one ahllllng's worth per head per week; tea Is to be 1^4 oz., end butter four ounces-per week;  Fish is very dear and Be is eTorythliig else.

What a time it isl" The Herald quotes the above for the wonderful message it conveys to Canadians. In spite of the hardships, every British mac, -woman and child is imdergolng, there is the utmost confidence and the greatest desire on ihe.-part ot all to pl^y the part to the  end. The letter is a lesson to Oana-dljma. 'We are living in the midst of peace and plenty and haven't begun ,to tlght*n our belts.

The right ot the Western Provinces to regulate ,their own divorce proceedings originated in their pro-Confederation status, and it has long been the opinion of the Western legal profession that all that was needed to bring the matter to a head was a judgment such as has now been registered.

Toronto Saturday Night has the right Idea about Alberta coal tor Western Canada. Saturday Night was one of the first ot the Eastern papers to take up the campaign after Th� Herald and other Alberta papers bs-iigan to .point out the possibility ot inaklBig Alberta's,coal mlUfca work to: capacity throughout the -aummer in order that Pennsylvania coal might lie diverted, to Ontario. In a recent Issue Saturday Night eald that the lanaounoement that the Prairie Provinces must depend upon their own coal the coming winter comes'almul-taneoualy -with the solemn warning that the United States will not be able to provide us the coming winter With onr accustomed allotment of hard coal. This warning comas from Dr. Garfield, the United States Fuel Controller, and is given to the public through the medium of our own Fuel CbntroUer, Mr. Magrath. This is a contingency neither they ,,�.or--w^ Oi�B alter. The necessary ^mount Bimply caamot be produced, pwing mainly to labor difficulties, ini yft must substitutes to inake up tlie difference. ^ "J �fty to you," says the Fuel Con-Inller, '*ttaat during the winter ot ltlt-19 you �re not going to gat sufficient co*l to keep your homes as oamfortaWe aii during the winter of 1817-18, Itirlll not be possible to heat the entire house, or maintain hlfb temperatures.

Federal jurisdiction, divorce all the provinces In order lli&t there . be some semblance of judfcial order. As it now stands, divorce on 'sthtutory grounds can "be obtained in some provinces which held to their pre-Confederation rights. Prince Edward Island, for Instance, while other provinces must rest their case with the Dominion Senate, where principles of church are more in the foreground than are principles of. justice. Divorce should not only be available to the rlcil, and that Is how it -works out u.ider our present system. Denominational belief or disbelief in divorce -should no longer be allowed to interfere with the rights of the subject. There is only one thing Canada should guard against. Divorce should be available to rich and poor alike, but availability should not be so easy that Canada bo placed in any danger o� falling Into the divorce evils that make such a farce of marriage in Bo many of the itates south ot the line.

The opening argument wns made yesterday by Samuel Untar-meyer. Mr. Untormeyor attacked ospticlnlly tho contention ot the Associated Press that news has property vaUio and charged that if tho lower court Injunctions are sustained, tho Associated Press will bo allowed to become a "despotic monopoly." In explanation of the action of tly; Ailed Governments. Mr. Untermeyer declared, it was- due' to news mattei' sent by. th'o International News Service to Its offices in-, this country regarding tho torpedoing of tho British battleship Audacious and tho naval battl^ off Jutland because headlines printed In one newspaper receiving the Hearst Service described Ijondon as being in flames. F. H. Lehman, for the' Associated Press, presented nrgupient and referred to decisions to uphold the contention that publication ot news does not relinquish the property right in it. "Because electricity outruns the apparent movement ot tlie sun, wo can clip the news appearing In the New York morning papers and s^nA it to any paper In the Misslasip'pi Valley or to the west ot that in ample time for publication In the regular and even the first editions. "Any person doing this would havo a great advantage over the Associated Press. What tho .\ssoclated Press got through tho diligence and daring of its correspondents at more than one battletront and at tho additional cost of transmission by cable across the Atlantic, this man would get sitting securely at a sate desk in New York by the mere use of a pair of scissors. "May the produce of tho nowa-gatherlng activities of tho Associated Press Intended exclusively tor its own members, be appropriated in the manntir suggested by Uie International News Service and sold-by it in competition with the As.soclnted Press.

E IT Amsterdam, May 4.-A Vienna despatch says the Austria premier, Ur. Von Seydler, speaklug at a conference ot party leaders declared that aorlous and economic conditions made it imperative for the present government to bo spared parliamentary criticism. Ho therefore demanded that the proposed sittings ot the parliament be postponed, adding that unless the party leaders took this step the government would prevent the aesaions forcibly. Apparently this conference, the date of which is not given, was held before the emperor ordered the parliament closed. The president of the. lower house of the parliament said in reply to--tho premier that.^tho conditions prevailing In the country and the demand from the larger political parties for tho resumption ot the sittings of the parliament made a further postponement impossible.
