A. Buchanan John Torrar.ce Managing Director Business THE PRESENT POSITION The news that the Allies have ad- vanced as far ns Douai is an item of considerable importance. It indicates that great strides have been made in the plan to encircle the forces of the enemy under Generals Von Khick anil Yon Bochm. Dour.1 is at the northern extremity on which the German right wing rested. Its previous disposition was from Guise io a slightly northwest- erly direction towards St, Quontion. then going north to Feronne and Cam- brai, find on to Douai, protruding itself in the neighborhood of Arra3. This German wing is now driven back easterly to within fifteen miles of the Belgian frontier. It looks as if the turning movement may be accomplished by the. Allies at any hour. MeamvUle strenuous ef- forts are -being made by the enemy to detach the advancing left wing of the Allies, Tvith evidently no success, north of the Oise. In the eastern zone of the fighting the Germans have been driven across the river Niemen, and the Russian The captor (to his superior 'im sitting on a barrel of laser eatm" sausage lite a pig, said 'e was the London Sketch. more, while the German navy holed j Itself up like a ground hog, refusing j to come out to fight under any con- j siderations, making the excuse that; march -towards Berlin may be said to the.

The London Times voices Bri- tish opinion when it says; "The Allies will go to Berlin to set- tle' accounts, cot to lay waste the fatherland. They will have fins to bay to the German people: j "This worship of -war must cesse and the sword you have forged must be 'broken.

Did the British army re- fuse to Sght the Kaiser at his own game against overwhelming .odds? And has the British navy ever refused a call from the German fieet?

Although the British fleet iy sheer superiority o? -weight and num- bers, .holds the command of the sea, It has not lived up to its traditions in. offensive operations. Tbo figbt in Heligoland bight was a brilliant piece of work, but the British odfls were so overwhelming that the net results could hardly have been less, and Ger- man eea (power was not seriously cnp- pled by the losses. The British navy, all, its advantages, has done nothing -so daring as the exploit of the German submarines which sank the three British cruisers, and the moral effect of this exploit is much greater than tlie military effect German .army has likewise failed to justify Its peace-won repu- tation "as the greatest fighting ma- chine of all history.
