That would be in accordance with the course which has hitherto been adopted by the Kaiser's government. President Wll- sph is prepared for such an eventu- ality. The extent of his actions in such a case is the object of much conjecture today. In all theatres of war in Europe the Allies have made marked progress, hut at great cost. The Austrians claim a victory over the Russians, Imt Petrograd is insistent that the .Russian troops are still pushing for- ward. tic Canadians turned defeat into victory, and added: "Every American heart beat faster when the news was flashed across the ocean.

Bri- tain's participation in the war was brought about by Germany's failure to. adhere to its pledged word. Since that time the Kaiser has broken pledges and promises by the score until today the rest of the world would be startled if Germany was to alter its course. Germany, in order to win her ob- ject, has done what she agreed not to do, and the Peterboro Review very well maintains that is why there cnn be absolutely no compromise in this war.
