Buchanan Torranco Managing Director Business Manager THE PRESENT SITUATION Very little lias been issued by tho press bureaus with reference to the fighting in can well surmlso that o combat the most deadly description'is going on there, as it is stated that the trendies the opposing forces are in many pcs: tions only 300 vards apart. It add; tlon to grappling irith the Allies th> enemy has to contend nsaiust inua datlons which mate his position mon hopeless. i It is difficult' to see how the Ger inane can possibly reach" the channe ports, and meanwhile toy their tactics they are merely playing into the hands of the Allies, though the mis begotten confidence of the Kaiser ctnnot see it, Minor successes along the north of '-the Aisno are reported showing thai all along the battle line the Allies are continuing to more than hold their own. Meanwhile the Russians are pushing ahead In tho eastern cam- paign, and hare evidently crossed the river Warthe, where the Germans entrenched, for their cavalry, it is reported, are new at Flesciien, a short distance southeast of the city ol Posen. that live stock ensures, mill livo stock interests hnve a serious set- 'back. To hold tho BUinller herds of cattle and hogs 'together. Intact, upon the land, should bo tho aim of tho men who look for prolltaWo farming be- yond the close of this ghastly war. Tho cy-i'lo of prices on llvo stock will take loiiger term of years thnn grain and so farmers should aim, in addition to increasing thoh acreage, to hold their fomalo stock at least. Many of these vital questions bo discussed by the Associa- tion of Growers, and it behooves every farmer in the south to attend their meeting here next Thursday, and associate themselves with the as- sociation in order that they may 'eat'iit from any action it- may tako s a representative body. In union here is strength, and co-operation is merely a synonym for power. .THE AUSTRALIAN IDEA RIGHT i Richard Jebb, a well known British iptsbllcist, has long been an advocate of local navies. He opposed the con- tribution plan from the 'beginning and during the, controversy in Can-1 nda a few years ago offered strong arguments for the adoption of t Australian policy for this count: After the capture of the Germa cruiser Emden by the Australia cruiser Sydney he wrota a letter tfie London Morning Post in which said: "By. no Engllahman can the part played iby the Australian 'navy be more heartily appreciat- ed than by those who for years have..tried to uphold the domin- ions in the policy of creating na- vies of their, own, with which the Australians have so splendidly persevered against; persistent of- ficial and unofficial attempts to the system of contri- bution to centralized navy. "Ten years ago I wrote that in the days of Armageddon' their ships snail range with ours. Lit- tle did I then imagine how Boon or-how strikingly that prophecy would be fulfilled." The work of the Australian navy i this, war will convince many that th idea" is ".right. Canada mus or" later, come to the sam line of action. Less than three weeks till nomina- tion day for school trustees. Gentle- men, please come forward and let us look you over. General Winter is on the on both battle fronts. He is strictly neu- tral, insisting on treating both sides alike. They tell us the punch is-out of the German attacks. Possibly tile Ger- man soldiers no longer have a stom- ach for the Allied medicine. Bathrooms and toasoriai parlors are the latest in the allied trenches, righting has come to mean to the men on the battle line just a day's work, but they'are doing the job as they liked it. Will the sinking of the Audacious go down into history along with the transportation of Russians hrough England as the "greatest egerid of the 20th i- LIVE In proportion to the support give toy the stockmen in the south to th efforts of the Western Stock Crowe: 'Association to reorganize and enlarg their society by enlisting1'the co-op eratioa of the; smaller breeders, ,m benefits accrue; The association ha recognized the in the meth cds'oMive stock production in the west, from those of the range to. the more concise methods of the and fcarnyard, and is endeavoring to Incorporate into the new association every branch of the live stock indus- iby the Tvay, which is of In- creased important at this critical stage. Mr. Lane, president of the as- sociation, has recognized the value of concentrating on the marketing, as well as producing, end 'of the busi- ness, and southern farmers should take cognizance of the truce -between the and the range-man, and come-forward with loyal support. The whole live, stock situation calls for the most careful study at this time. It Is regrettable that so many breeding cows and heifers, and par- UaJIy finished cattle, should be sacri- ficed at such low prices as have been paid In the past few weeks. Stock- men may not but the recent embargo placed on Canadian cattle look's" like a blessing in disguise. It lijt good thing that something has beeu done to stop, the run of stock On tjie market. The banks have ut- terfr' tolled to meet the logical de- BUQda made upon them by the men iwftft should have first claim on their credit; tobogganing of the prices accelerated by thy man who rwlehrt to ret back into extensive grain farming with the hope of reslfz- Ilng big money through the advance in ito 'to the Var." bur farms iueorae Cracow is almost in Russian hands. AJter Breslau! If would 'be well if the Russians were to bold Jreslau, the great industrial centre Westphalia, as a hostage of Ger- man good behavior in Brussels. Before fanners turn down any pro- posal that aims to give thorn irriga- tion they should study the question and get the actual experiences of ir- rigation fanners.
