These wlae ward* of Henry Orummond are fraught with a apecfiH meaning for all of u* today. .Never in ita history haa this old world looked on so much of aalf�* fttf jfrriW AN ARMISTICE SHOULD BE REFUSED There should be no armistice. It Germany's request is granted it is a victory for the Germans and a disastrous blow to the allies. Germany is simply playing for a recess. It has no intention of yielding to the allies' demands. The advocate of an armistice at this moment is a pro-German. He is just playing Into the hands of Germany. The only way to crush Germany and ] its ambitions is on the battlefield and not around a conference table. We can't hope to end war for all time by conferring with Germany at this time. If we did confer'we would merely be giving the Hun a breath ing spell to enable him to carry on the war. THE PROGRESS OF1 THE WAR With the final breaking through the Hindenburg Una on'Tuesday, the British and Americans opened the way to ; a big drive on the Germans who are now retreating over a wide front from north ot Cambrai to south ot St. Quen-tin. Cavalry Is now teingnaed by the Britishand the French have joined in on the St Quantin sector. Tanks and armored cars are also understood to be In action following up the rapidly retreating Hnns, who are now putting forth desperate efforts to reach a temporary line through Valenciennes on which it 1b hoped to make a etand before retreating to a better prepared lid* from Antwerp to Metz. The, German Josses'in thevpresent withdrawal are already heavy and each day will add to the heavy toll of pris oners, guns and war material. The break-through at Cambrai is alto due to have as accelerating effect on the German retreat on the Lille and Bel giaa coaat sectors. It li in the south, however, east of Rhslms to the Argonnfe that the poftsl-tijllty of a greet allied victory is to be sen. - With the jaws of a great trap operated by the British and Americana (n the north and by the French and Americans along the southern base of the angle, closing the German positions in the tdton sector are far from comfortable, and the enemy will find himself hard pat to it to extricate himselfl The, next fortnight. appears destined to practically spell the end of German occupation of France. In the east rumor has it that Turkey Is crumbling and is likely to sue for peace within a short time. Gen. Al-tonby haa advanced more than 30 miles north of Damascus, while the > taking of Beirut is of vital Importance. Add to this that Smyrna is talking separate, peace and that the Turk cabinet is disintegrating and the end ot Turkey appears to be not tar off. A Stockholm rumor this morning ays that the Kaiser la going to abdl- . cate. it Is only a rumor, and that is 'all it is ever likely to amount to. GOVERNWENT SHOULD ACT QUICKLY. It -would appear that increased allowances are to be provided .for soldier's dependents. It is 'none too soon. The government shouldn't delay in Increasing the allowance. The dependents find it hard to meet the increased cost of living and they should be relieved from their worries in this regard, immediately.
