'ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The Germans are beginning to tes the strength of the allied line in uor them France and Flanders with t little more frequency now, and ihei: ntfeempts are meeting with just abou the same success as has been the! i Jot at Verdun. The allied line, stron Tiger than ever with, the hundreds o of reinforcements whtcl been brought up, can never penetrated and the Germans are to realize it. Attempts on to break the line at the Yse f-canal failed, as did also attempts fur Either along the line. A series of air raids on both side; f took place Friday with varying sue i cess. The allies raided. German camps rfjn.Belgium, while the Germans raided Imnkirk, and sent seaplanes to the 'English coast which dropped bombs f-on several towns t Ii.: is reported that the allies have their blockade for the pass of tons of dyes to tie States, and for this the British gov i eminent is being severely condemned OPPOSITION EXPOSES WASTE AND GRAFT The session of parliament just over covered, four months, and its length cannot be blamed upon the opposition It was only at the last moment that important railway legislation waa brought that meant the expenditure of millions oC; dollars AS R.

Here we are being urged to economize by the of '.Finance, and as W- F.T Kickle, a government supporter very veil put it, the government is openly "wasting money by purchasing broken down unfinished lines in Que- bec, as a recompense for the support Sir Rodolphe Forget.

It "will mean more money out of thod of exuendltnre. A united people behind the government was possible at the beginning if tho Prime Minis- tor had cut out partisanship in tlie conduct of Canada's part In the war and had seen to it that our money was honestly aud carefully spent. Ho invited opposition, he invited criticism when he allowed partisanship and patronage to donjinate, and those two evils are responsible for the jils into which the government has been placed. The fuss inquiry has been amply justified. Our money was nr wasted, Canadian industries were being passed over and a prefer- ence given to American concerns who were willing to "divvy" with the favor- ite of the Minister of Militia. Had the game not been exposed, the graft- Ins would have continued and the people would have had to pay the piper. Just a sample of the way money was being wasted: Cadwell, the New York manufacturer, in his evidence before the Meredith-Duffi commission said that ills firm previ- ously had been taking orders for un- loaded grftze fuses at from ?2.40 to ?2.75, and he would have been pre- pared to quote those figures on the Canadian shell committee's contract. Instead of ;thls, a reduction of only was made on the price filed by Col. Carnegie of the Canadian committee, which brought the price per fuse down to whereas it might easily have been 52.40 or In other words under the shell com- mittee's management of things, the committee is really paying the Ameri- can Ammunition company from ?1 to too much on, each of fuses. The is nearly a million dollars. The Liberal opposition exposed this deal. The government press says the disloyal because they de- mand Investigations and denounce war corruption. They people taluk, differently. It is only by exposing wrongdoing that you can pre- vent it. If the Liberals succeed in stopping graft and waste, through thetr actions at the past two sessions of parliament, the country Trtli he grateful.
