On the west the British were forced to give some ground to the Germans at the points where the fighting has been fiercest of late. The Germans appear to have been concentrating In superior numbers at these points. On the east the Russiaas are putting tip a stiff fight to hold back the German hordes, which are pressing their line along the River San. The Italians have not been long In Saining the first advantage 3veasses. nl the Dardanelles the news is inij' cheering from the Allies' atandpo'rit, the Turk losses being venr heavy, and their continued attacks against the allied land forces meeting with no sue-CeiB whatever. cbildretl and un armed men and . women.

OUR POINT OF VIEW In Sir Henry Lucy's regular weekly letter to The Toronto Daily News, ho reports that General Jotfro btlieves the war wfll end in October. He adds that this opinion is supported by high authorities in Great Britain. As "Toby, M.P.," the parliamentary correspondent of Punch, few British journalists have such intimate relations with public men or have so much knowledge ot the inner mind of the British government as Sir Henry Lucy.

For it ever a 2san got a drubbing from Hubbard it wasthe German War Lord. The Roy-croft philosopher expressed his views on the Kaiser in a pamphlet entitled �Who'Ufted the Lid Off Hull." Well, the Kaiser did the. lifting, and Hubbard did not hesitate to say so. Here are sdme extracts from the pamphlet: Tf any one asks "^'ho lifted the lid off of Hen 7" let the truthful answer be "William HohenioUem." Had this man used his power for peace instead of invading a neutral country there would' have been no war. England would have joined with Germany in checking Austria's belligerency, but Wllhelm wanted war. and war he has. He it was who used the bung-starter. "Bill Kaiser" has a withered hand and a running ear, also he has a shrunken soul and a mind that reeks with ego-monia. He is a mastoid degenerate of a noble grandmother. We agree he has her power, but not her love. He has her persistence, but not her per-�evera'nce. He is swollen like a drunken pup, with a pride that stinks. .The belief that the Maker of the "Dniverse takes a special interest in him marks the man as megalomanlc, and the idea that the nations were "laying for bim" is the true symptom Ct paranoia. His talk of a Slav invasion is stall tituff, subtle and sly, to divert attention from his own crafty designs. Is a Slav invasion more to be dreaded than a Oertnasic? Ask Belgium. We are told that the Kaifler kept the peace for forty-three years. True- 3ust waiting for this strike at world tiomlnlon. Caligula, that royal pagan pervert, ^as kind compared with' the kaiser. Nero, the fiddling fiend, with his carelessness in the use of fire, never burned property in all his pestilential career worth one-half that destroyed when the Kaiser's troops applied the jtorch to storied Louvain. Why do the Oennaa people stand by the War Lord? The answer 1* easy. It is a matter of the hypnotic spell of Iiatriotism and the lure of the crowd, combined with coercion. We make a virtue ot the thing we are compelled  to do. . . . The crazy Kaiser will Mot win. The wisdom of the world backs the AHies, and St. Helena waits, tt must be so. Germany will not be subjugated, but ehe will be relieved of a succubus that has threatened her very existence. Dls-Brmament must come. This awful chain of war will make a World Federation a necessity. It need not longer be argued for. Not a sane man or woman on earth but knov/s worid federation and disarmament mean the safety of the race. Canada and the United States have kept the peace for a hundred years by "an arrangement" whereby it was provided that each government should have on the lakes two boats each with a crew not to exceed 26 meni The '"arrangement" has worked, Statesmen must be buBinssa men, not soldiers. Statesmen build a state -soldiers destroy it. One army and one navy, serving as police, can keep the peace. Beyond this "prepared-nesB" spells hell in italics. Let us thank William the Second lor exploding for mb, among other bombs, the bromidlal fallacy that vast armaments insure peace. We believe In the Germany ot Beethoven, Goethe and Sehllier-not in the Prussia of Nietzsche, Trletsohke and ;Bernbardl. And now poor Hubbard, who expressed himself bo strongly about the Kaiser and his methods, becomes a victim of those mothodS'^the methods o(. Ilend Incarnate, a murderer of little  In a recent interview, which he gave l,to a, Toronto newspaper Hon. F. M. B, Fishar, formerly minister of Customs and Marine in the government ot New Zealand,' made some observations on elections in war time. He pointed out that, thaugh in every case in Australasia in which an election bad been held since the war In-oke out, the el- j ection was required by constitutional law, the result had invariably been to Injure the party In power. In Australia th� government bad been turned out, and in New Zealand its position was exceedingly precarious, largely because the, soldier vote had been cast against it He remarked that it was amazing how the soldiers visited on the government grievances that were reaHy the' result of military orders. Every man whose leave had been stopped, who was refused promotion or who found it Impossible to get a commission, wrote to all his friends telling what an inefficient government New Zealand had. Mr, Arthur Henderson, M.P., who is to be President of the Board ot Education in the British government, is like John Burns,- intimately associated with Ijibor movements. He has represented the Barnard Castle Division of Torkahire since 1903, and he has been very popular with his constituents. Yorkshiremen are noted for their shrewd grasp ot political affairs, with which the great mass ot Yorkshire people keep in close touch. Mr. Henderson is a native of Glasgow, and was bom in 1863. He married a Sussex lady and has three sons. Having served as an apprentice at Robert Stephenson's moulding works at Newcastle, Arthur Henderson knows what hard, practical labor is, and the sympathy he feels for the toller comes from experience. He held a number of important offices in connection with bis trade union, and, showing much public spirit, he was elected a member ot the Newcastle City Council. He is a Wes-leyan and an abstainer. 'Very early in his Parliamentary oareer be "made his mark." He has been chairman of the Partlamentary Labor Parly, member of the Railway Royal Commission, and very much in the public eye In many ways. Canadian women ere playing a noble part in this war. Sacrifices! who are making greater sacrifices than the mothers and the wives. The death toll in France has struck us all as a heavy blow; but the blow falls hardest upon the mothers who have lost a son and the wives who have lost a husband. Patriotism, real and inspiring, possesses these women. What greater sentiment could be expressed than the following from the lips of Mrs. Burton of Toronto, whose son, Lieut. Burton, an trtd St. Andrew's College boy, was wounded recently in France: "He is my only child. He said it was his duty to go, and I knew that he was right. He would not have been the son of his father-or his mother-if he had shirked. It I had five sons, no word of mine wojjld deter them from meeting their obligation to their country in suoh a time of stress and the need of strong, brave men. Not one ot them would at my behest shield himself behind my skirts, or any other woman's, or behind the sons ot other mothers. "I am deeply sorry my dear boy is wounded, but find consolation in the knowledge that It was because he was doing what be had to be doing for us all, and I know be was doing it well. He has a,host ot friends who, too, will be sorry that ho has been hit, and they -^111 hope with me that he ig not seriously woitnded, ahd for bte eaily �recovery to take his place in h is reel-mentaiKln."

' Canadian engineers, Ottawa,, ', HOLLAND iS NEUTRAL To the Editor of the Herald : Sir,-l.,ooking over the map, "Europe in Black and White," which appeared in the Tuesday number ot your paper, I have noticed that Hoi-} land appears in white, with Germany and Austria, and also Turkey. According to the key of the map, tliis color indicates that Holland is pro-German. N'ow, I imagine tor a moment that we live here in Germany, and in that case I would say nothing about it. However, we do not live in Germany, but in a covin try whose people boast ol equal rights for all, liberty and respect tor everyone, and that our social lite is influenced by a public opinion wliich is charitable towards it. All very well. But because ot this I want to point out that this map of Europe in black and white has already done its disastrous work to Holland's attitude in this terrible war, kept up so tar as a neutral country, for people will respect Holland as a pro-German country Ironi now on. In individual life it Is very hard to walk in a rumor of lies, So it is still worse for a whole nation, especially when a struggle is on like the present one. Besides it costs Holland her self control to keep neutral and not to give way to any speculating sentiment. Now, I am not going to forecast it Holland will go to war, and if so, on which side sihe will line up. 1 am not even going to say how I, personally, would like to see it, but 1 ^viU say that Holland is still neutral,' and that by way of this map in black and white, a lie is put upon that country. Now 1 will not think that it has bben done intentionally, but it has been done just the same and the results will follow, and Dutch people everywhere in this country will be dragged into discussion of the matter. Many, of tliem do not know how to answer questions put to them referring to this ; others may not bo able to sec the seriousness of it, and act in a way that may lead to misunderstanding and trouble.. Holland is misrepresented on this map, and very likely i;his will he continued in other Canadian papers, and probably has Ixfsn done already to some extent. I, as a Hollander, ask persistently that this map will bo stopped to bo printed, or be mended, so that Holland thereon may appear in the shade as a neutral country. I ask this in the good name of Holland, and above all in the name ot this Canadian-Brl-tisli spirit which is boasted to pro-ynil here. 1\U-. Editor, I will lie much obliged if you will do your part in prevon1>-ing any possible further result of this misrepresentation ot my couiitry on the map. It you will place my letter before the public as a means ot drawing attention to the reparation ot the map, I will leave that with you to decide.- Yours Truly, T.' R. VAN HAAIILEM. ERROR CORRECTED To the Editor of The Herald: In paragraph 6 section (a) of my let. ter yoBterday on "Prohibition Prohlb^ Us," the word "Kentucky" has been omitted, destroying the sense. The paragraph, corrected, reads as follows: "According to the Wall Street Journal, the production, ot whiskey In Kentucky in Jaauary last was 1,-980,000 gallons, as compared with (I,-102,-152 gallons in January, 1914; the production in Pennsylvania was 1,073,-808 Ka'llons hi January, against 1,-552,415 a year ago, and In Maryland 506,919 gallons against 918,682."
