Lord Fisher is an old and tried naval ,man, but Sir. Churchill is head of the Admiralty and he exercises his pow- ers to the fullest possible Lord Kitchener announces that he need recruits short- ay, -but in the same breath jives the cheering news that the progress in 'the Dardanelles is very satisfactory, and thtt the difficulty in securing sup- plies ammunition is abating. More-concessions have offered Italy by Austria as the of peace, out both countries continue with ttelr preparations for war. News from the various fields of war yesterday appeared to give the Allies much the best ot it. The Aus- I trians have again suffered' a most humiliating.defeat at the hands of 'the Russians, and in France the vic- torious advance of the French and British continues.

In case Germany's reply to the States proteif aoout-the Lusi- tania is -unsatisfactory, short of war. what can the American repub- lic do? A -writer In the New York Post says that the suggestions that have been made narrow themselves down to the following: 0) The United States could seize Germany's interned warships and the merchant vessels that He idle in her -harbors. (2) She-could give them the most dreadful' rebuke that one country ever gave another by char- acterising them as an outlaw among, nations, beginning the summary of their misdeeds -with the story of Bel- gium, and following it down through various events to tie sinking of the "Lusitania." (3) She could at once enter upon a policy of non-intercoune, withdrawing her ambassador her consuls from Germany, refusing to aafeguard any longer their interests in the belligerent nations, and then Bend home von Bernstorff, Dernburg i and the German consuls. U) She E could, after this, moblliae her fleet ana form a league of the.other neutral nations to speak to Germany with the united voices of aM tee neutral world, 1 and start in this way the international police which la to uphold here- after that supreme ceurt of the na- tions that ia ultimately tt do away -with war. In considering taeae lie Saskatoon Phoenix says the tint j proposal is unthinkable; it would tail a violation of intirnatjeoal law and simply amount to reprisals, a policy for which it ia certain Presl- t dent Wilson would not ttand. Pro- potal nimfcer two nay be rejected in view, of the worda in the-final graph of the note, that the govera- jaent of the "United States will not "omit, any word or act neceisary to the performance of its sacred duty." The second proposal calls for r. jrords not acts. Proposal three 'moans the outlaw- ing of Germany and has a precedent i in the severance of .diplomatic 1 tioni with the' United States by Italy in 1897. As a moral rebuke it has t advantages hut it cannot he seriously j maintained now that a moral castlga- tien would not have any effect upon Germany. The very cause for Ameri- can action is the final answer to that plea The fourth proposal Is not without a precedent, in the Armed Neutrali- ties of Northern Europe in 1750 and 1800. How- far such a league as that proposed would so in active operation againat Is not suggested and the policing idea is more academic than practical. As to what the United States lib, the very carefully am sanely edited New York Tribune aot heiltate to. outline.

SANDS, Acting Manager :iWhy Don't You Give in" German Asks the Canucks Ptc. ErneSl Bosworlh, for a num- ber of years an employee of the Her- ald, went to France with the first Canadian Contingent.

Boswoith says You will be surprised ut the ad- dress, but don't worry, I'm not hurt, I'm in here with my ears, they have been bothering me a lot lately and I got lost coming from the trenches the other night. It" was so dark, one couldn't see a toot in front, we wore coming out in. single file and 1 lost sight of the man ahead when we crossed a ditch and couldn't hear which direction they were making in. J was blundering along know where I'm going but I'm on my way" style when somebody opened fire on me. I ducked down and crawled along a little distance when I was chall- enged by one 01 our listening .patrols and I hollered to him who I was and he directed me to the road which he said was halt a mile away, it seemed half a dozen. Every time a flare went up I'd get my direction and inside of two minutes, I'd lose it again. It took me about an hour and a half to get to the road, and 1 think about a third of the time was spent in fall- ing into shell holos and ditches and crawling out again. I won't be able cuss for a mouth, I've used up my stock of cuss words. Well, I found the Company back at the billet and the captain sent me sick and here I am. I am well enough myself, hut I am in bed writing this. I guess the weather is getting warmer in Luthbridgc by now, it is fine here. A German threw a bottle from their trench into our with a note in- side it saying, "Why don't you Eng- lish, give in, I'm only waiting for vou to give in so that 1 can go home my wife'." One of our fellows threw hack a hcvnd granadu saying, i "Here, divide that between you." j Then they pasted us with bombs -from their trench mortars. GERMAN ASKS REVOCATION OF ENGLISH BARONETCY London, May 17.-r-Sir Edgar Speyer has sent a letter' to Premier Asquith resigning his privy counelllorship, and requesting also the revocation of his baronetcy. The letter declares that Sir Edgar was led to take this step after nine months of charges of disloy- alty by newspapers, which charges have..lately., culminated in speeches against him. The Globe, in an editorial publish- ed today, before the letter of Sir Ed- gar had been made public, complained that neither Sir'Edgar nor Sir Ernest CasseM, both privy councillors, had made public "their detestation of Ger- many's crimes." It was charged by the Globe that because they were of alien origin Sir El'Jgar and Sir Eniest were only per- mitted legally to hold their seats in the privy council by an amendment In the Naturalization net, which pass- ed unnoticed during the turmoil oMast August.
