The capture of the city is now officially announced, but the capture was not effected without great loss of life. Allied troops to the number of 000 have landed in Salouiki. and are hastening into Serbia to check the invaders. The capture of Belgrade, just across the river from the Aus- trian frontier, is not considered of vast importance. The vital clash wilt come farther towards the interior of Serbia. Greece and Roumania have given no further indication of any intention to enter the struggle. Bulgaria has protested to Greece against the move- ment of allied troops through that country, but their advance is not be- Germans in Russia are concentrat- ing- on s. riolent attack on Dvinsk, in an endeavor to take the city.

In referring toJSir Wittrirt's ecent iimesa, The Star says: ''The recovery of Sir Wilfrid Laur- ier. from his tedious experiences in the hospital will be a matter of gen- uine rejoicing throughout the Dom- inion. Sir "Wilfrid is a great, a po; tent and a striking figure in our pub- lic life. Bvei the temporary incapac- ity of so important a our national affairs creates a feeling of un- of something lack- has been happily relieved by Sir Wilfrid's return to health. "Sir Wilfrid's attitude during the has been subject of especial pride 'to his friends and of comfort and sat- isfaction to the whole country. What ever lesser men have said or done, Sir Wilfrid has laid aside all party feeling or manoeuvring during this menacing crisis ;in our history. He has stood squarely and publicly be- hind the government in its prepara- tions to put Canada with the fighting forces of the Empire, and he hai raised his eloquent and persuasive again and again, to assist re- at. times of-keen phj Elcal suffering on his own part He may be said to have gone straight from the firing Sine of the recruiting platform to his hospital bed. "As a life-long lover of liberty and a devotee of .democracy, Sir Wilfrid constitutionally prepared to-fight Prussian-ism with all his strength. He put the case in a aut-shell at Sher- war he said, 'a con- test 'between German institutions and British institutions. "British institu- tions mean freedom. German insUtu- tons mean despotism. That is why we as Canadians have such a vital in- terest in this war.' At the very out- break of the war, speaking in the House of Commons, he described the Allied cause as a fight for freedom democracy against tyranny and autocracy. The whole Canadian peo- ple will be glad that so valiant a sol- dier for constitutional liberty is once more able to bear arms."
