The Russians have begun attacks at many points on the north- ern Rumanian front, according to Ber- lin vantages, Berlin also reports Rumanians In Wallachai are retreat- Ing in disorder towards Bucharest. It Is announced that the Rumanian gov- ernment has left Bucharest for Jasay, 200 miles north-east Serbians have gained distinct ad- yamages over the Teutons in their fighting east of the c'erna river on the Macedonian front. Northwest of Mon- astir a big battle is in progress. The Italians and French are operating on this front with considerable success.

That the enemy, particularly his in- fantry, has become demoralised, there is no question. We are Tinning, and must win, but It Is necessary that we should apply ourselves to the prose- cution of the war with all our-fceart and soul and itrenph; that we should keep up our reinforcements imp- ply tha munitions and other military reqnlremetits. Falling to do this we commit a blunder -wane than a crtine: in sll probability the war heights and made other THE NEW B. C. GOVERNMENT At last British Columbia has a government, and not before it needed It. The people gave the Bowser gov- ernment notice to quit in September last, but Mr. Bowser was never in tha habit of paying much attention to the people, so he held on to office for two months, using one as his reason. Bowser has gone anyi Will 10 on Indefinitely, perhaps for nother j and 3rew- ster is In his place. Brewster had a hard job naming his cabinet as he had a lot of real good material to choose from.

PEACE TALK NOT VERY POPULAR an eminent publicist, ac cording to the New York Times, I contributing a series of articles pro- posing that the United States should suggest peace to the warring nations TWs. writer sees In the recent speech of the German chancellor favoring an International Court of Peace after the war, a sign that Germany Is ready for peace, and on terms that will be ceptable to the allies. It Is not sur- prising that "Cosmos'" suggestion I not very enthusiastically received. The Times publishes a column of letters from readers every day, and almost all of them oppose peace at present They argue that Oermany must be severely punished for Ha sins and that it would be ridiculous to accept the chancellor's intimation as a basis for peace negotiations. They point to Germany's deportation of the Belgians as a direct contradiction to the chan- cellor's words, and an evidence that Germany has no aorlous intention of seeking think the pottUen tt Rev.

The present price of rubber, when its-cause is revealed, affords one of the many proofs that such an opinion is away off the mark. Thanks to great rubber plantations established, in the face of criticism and ridicule, many years before in her tropical Dominions, Great Britain at the outbreak of the war held a firm and tightening grip on the world's supply of raw grip reinforced by her dominating navy. From 60% in 1914, the production of these plantations has grown this year to 75 of the whole world's output, leav- ing only about half the requirements of the United States alone to come from all other sources. The result has been that the needs of the Allies, enormous though they are.'havis been plentifully supplied, while Germany has beep reduced to regis- tered mails and the Deutschland" in desperate attempts to mitigate her rubber famine. Neutrals have been allowed all the rubber they want, at prices actually lower than before the war, 'so long as they prevent any of it from reaching the enemy, while Canada and other parts of tM Empire have an abun- dant supply at equally favorable'.Government-regu- lated prices. In this foresight and generosity of tho British Government lies the reason why rubber alone, of the great staples, has cone m In price-why rubbers and overshoes, in spite of fncreaseo- cost of fabric, chemical, and are as inexpensive is ever, while shoes arc costing s.vera! dollars a pair more Wearing rubbers or overshoes through winter to protect these expensive shoes Is moro than practical thr tt-It Is grate-, ful patriotism, for In thus savins leather we make it for the Government to secure the absolutely necessary supplies of this alarmingly scarce material for our soldiers, Both Thrift and Patriotism Point to Rubbers!
