THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. lAjtlUery has been artivc at many points on the wosteni from within the past two or Uiree d.iys. but there has been no resumption of the German offensive.

Since conscription became a live Issue amongst Irishmen throughout tlie world. It is well to note that Irishmen are not all of the mind of the Nationalists and Sinn Feiners. Naturally the Ulster Irish are for conscription, but the Irish of the United States friendly to Home Rule, are not antl-conscrlption by "any means. The American-Irish, at least a great many of them; look upon the war as a struggle to retain democracy throughout the world and they can't understand why the Home Rulers at homo can't drop their prejudice, and Join whole-heartedly with the democratic nations of the world to save democracy. Many meetings of Irishmen in the United States have expressed sympathy �with Home Rule and con-tcriptlon at the same time. At a recent meeting of the Irish Fellowship Club of Chicago, perhaps the most representative organization of the kind in the Middle West, Mr. Quin O'Brien, a citizen of prominence, in the course of a speech in opposition to the antl-coBscripfion move�-ment In Ireland, used this language: "I am the son of a Fenian, but if-It were necessary, to win this war, that Ireland should sink in the sea alongside the Li]sltania, then I would say, 'Sink Ireland;'" This sentiment was enthusiastically cheered. Speaking of the tone-of the meeting generally. The Tribune says editorially that � "The view taken of our-duty to an ally and to the English people fighting heroically for freedom, is lofty and clear-visioned. It 'will be honored and remembered in this country, and we believe in England as well." ' change over the face of Ihlng.t In the j wosterrt'TinnP.

In addition, tho roloase of thousands of Ocrman troops of various clas.=ics from the Uusslau front has brought tho German strength to.moro tlian Its former dimensions in any one field of conflict. Wliat the Allies are faced with in the west, what they nave been faced with since March L'l, has been the danger of completo submersion by (>-.'erwhelming numbers at some point of tho line. Onco a breach Is created in the Allied defences tho Hun.s will be in position to sweep forward to the Chunnol ports; it is estimated that the col-l.ipso of Cough's army was responsible for the loss of twenty-five miles of Allied territory. Only by heroic defence work and tho, splendid help of the gallant French vere the Hrllish enabled to stem thj Teuton flood that poured into the gap left by Cough's defeat. The Allied army to-day is ^ dyke against a green-clay flood that looks ceaselessly icr a chink in tho dam-a chink tJat can be widened until the wiiole structure collapses.

As the Ottawa Citizen observes, the reply of the Prime -^inlster to the delegation of Ontario^ fai;mers who wailed on the Government to'i seek modification of the draft law In respect to young. men engaged in production on the land will doubtless como as a surprise to those who li^ve been taught to believe all along, and largely by Government ' warning an^ advertisement' in general, . that the prime need ot. tlie. >AJIies was more food or an assurance that sufficient production w^ould b'e forthcoming as to render the matter 'of "food supplies beyond doubt. But, the Prime Minister and the Goyemqjent are not necessarily Inconsistent in declaring now that men are more Important than food, Tho war situation changes from day to day and it may be that , what is considered wise and proper to-day will be found to ba of secondary'Importanoe to-morrow. Wien the administration- made its appeal tor more production and when It was tacitly understood., at least, that these engaged In farming would not be disturbed the situation was different on the western front' In France from what It 4s to-day. When the Union Ooveroment went on record during the elections.
