Thus far few de- tails have been received of this move- ment which has been generally ex- pected. Germans assert they are advancing Steadily to the south of the Danube, although they make no specific men- tion of the amount of ground gained or points taken. Unofficial dispatches from NIsh Btate tiiat Serbia hue checked the German advance at several points on the Danube, in some cases throwing back thcinvader across the river.

Magrath Denounces System of Party Politics Ottawa, Out., Oct. The party of politics, the- public service tind some of the Canadian public which have been born of the were dealt with in a speech de- livered before' the Canadian, .club by 'f section Vpf floiht. Commission. "3fr. Itlagratli'S criticism 'of Canada's 'system, of some aspects' of thelcivil activities, and ot some Dominion transportatiomprojects, was frank .and edged .with -satire, for instance, referring to various schemes for the transportation of wheat to Europe, lie wondered, why the driving of a tun- nel through the earth's crust to Liv- erpool had not been included. Hon. James Tawney, chairman 'of the United States section of the In- ternational Joint deliv- ered an address illustrative of .the of that body, which he referred to as miniature Hague tribunal. After briefly touching on the work cf the commission, Mr. C. A. Magrath went on- to. speak of the party system In Canada. He expressed his opinion that -we were overgoverned in this country, that the party system was hud, party strategy abominably so, and that'most-ofi the potitica'l'literature is- sued by both parties was "piffle." Too many chances were taken with the taxes of the people, with.-the honor'of the country, .'out never such an. .unholy act as a chance thq life of the party.' -However, public as-'much as its representatives were -..to blame, and clergymen who the former from their pu'ipits' might well turn to their congregations and give them a few plain truths affecting their own share of the public weal. Turning to the necessity, for a trained public Mr.- Magrath said that it .was impossible to secure one without the preliminary laying of some ..broad skeleton plan. Tim pub- lic service must include a section qualified to do research work, men oana-ble of-working out the economic needs of development problems' that must from time to time confront such a young country So long as'such important investigations were carried on outside the service, never twice by the same group, there would be a great lessening ot- efficiency.
