THE PROGRESS OP THE WAR. The Germans have developed thelt oIIeusiTo on the Aiano with the full force of their fighting machine, and Uaye made substantial gains.  The allied line appears to be thinly held In this sector, and withdrawals to a considerable distance have been made necessary by the sheer weight ot the Oorman offensive. The retreat, however, is not of any alarming cha^cter. The German rush lias considerably dwindled today and by tomorrow it should be fully check ed. There ^las been a considerable loss of guns by the allies, but no break has been made in the allied line and I^encU reinforcements are coming ntpidly to the rescue of the British. ' The .Americans gained (heir first Individual success when they stormed a French viSlage and held it against German counter attacks. The feat is widely commeirted upon in England. SUBSTITUTE FOR COTTON APPEARS. Has the world found a substitute this war? tor cotton aa a result ot Exchanges carry the Information that ipbagaum mose; found In some of the seaboard states and provinces is a substitute which Is being widely 'lued. �The Spokesman Reyiew glvps Uie following interesting fnlormatioh 'about the substitute: WMhington is one of the states that ' the government is looking to for its tupply of a most important new'material of war. Sphagnum moss is its jiame, and it is said to be' the- coming universal substitute for cotton as a surgical dressing. Germany, It is said, uses this moss entirely now in its military hospitals, since Germany has no sotton. The French and English, their own stocks of cotton running low, '.took to the mose, and now even the 'United States, principal source of the world's cotton supply, is begln-aing to mobilize Its sphagnum moas reioarces, ^ in OUT case the trouble is not any shortage of cotton, but .the extraordl-. hary high price of that commodity. Raw cotton brings 30 cents a pouqd, ,�n4 by the time it has been made into material for dressings the coat is double that amount. Hence the desire to develop to the fullest extent the possibilities of sphagnum moss. Thlfl moss, which 'Washington, in common with a few other seaboard states, produces in large quaniitiei, has a yellow top, with little fronds circling aroutjd the stem, e^ Railway shopmen, of Wtjanipeg want wages increased from the present rate Qf 3S cents to 54c for a nine-hour day. } ' " Knox Church, Victoria, recently celebrated its ninth anniversary, and Rev.

BEHINP THE SCREEN IN' JAPAN.. Marshal Prince Yamagata and Marquis Matsukata are the surviving elder statesmen In the minds of all Japanese when Ibey refer to the Genro; later -elevations to this exalted it rather visionary and fleti-'tlouB rank are those of Marquis OUuma, Marquis Salonji. and Admiral Count Togo.

Justifies Poaition The mayor then went Into a long history of the establishment ot the segregated area ia 1913, justifying hii position. He had put the matter before the ministers. They had no solution. The board of %ealthi had later oven suggested enlarglhig it for the protection of the public. A� to tJondltlons in the blocks up-town, they get ;�vrong aometimes before tha police can' learn of the "fact, but they ire cleaned out as soon as the police can get the facts.

Sehl challenged the mayor's statement that the pollping of: the city is as efficient as it ever was; He thought the blocks should be cleaned up and he thought a few thousand dol lars to clean out the filth of the city would be well spent. As secretary of the Chlldrens' Aid there were many things came under his notice that were heartbreaking. He made aii appeal for cleaner conditions in the city.; Mayor Hardle answered that tliese wore war-conditions, ant^Mf the city had 100 poiiceihen it wouldn't do any good. -Hedeclared that It any^^cltizen bad,any suspicion at any time that all was not rlgh^-ip,;any block or house, -the city would have the police thoroughly investigate and clean It upf . > It ,Not Efficisht . ; Mr. C.
