Buchanan John Torrance Managing Director Business Manag THE PRESENT POSITION In spite of the enemy's nttncks U Allies' left-still holds unflinchingly its purpose of enveloping the opposln right wing. Our attention is for the momei transferred to the capture of An -rv-erp. Tills it is agreed can make n direct Influence on tho progress of tl campaign beyond letting free a lar; portion of the German corps engage in the investment of '.he city to stren then the falling line of General Yo Kluck. But at tho same time it leases tho Belgian field force, and th British troops which have escape from Antwerp for aggressive actio against the foe. The enemy's gain therefore, counterbalanced by an .vantage to .the Allies. Beyond serving as a possible aerc plane base-for the despatch of ai craft to the British Isles, from whic Antwerp is distant about 100 miles t the nearest point, and serving as base for its second line of defence no material advantage has -been gain ed by the Germans. As for an aero- plane Invasion it has yet to be show how eSectlve this can be. Meanwhile the enemy is takin steps for the occupation of Ostend This, if he can bring up his powerfu siege guns, he may very possibly ac complish, nnless disaster to his righ wing causes alia to halt. But even the possession of Osteni does not advance-the enemy's cam palgn.

They voluntarily fixed the rate and kept it In force until It secured all the ser- Tices 'possible and sold all the fixtures necessary. Then It jumped tho rates ,The agreements permit the company to pursue this action, but advancing prices in war time has been condemn- ed by already, and >vhy not in- the case of the Gas Co.? CHOICE RESTS WITH FARMERS Farmers who receive government aid. should keep in mind that they have the right to .use the government orders at customary trading place. There is no compulsion; they are at liberty to patronize pfare'they desire. That was the in- struction issued at the 'beginning by the Ottawa authority. The supervis- ors have no authority .to compel them to patronize certain merchants. The choice rests with.the fanners. AIDING THE EMBARRASSED The Alberta government very wisely 'didn't rush into any wide moratorium measure, whereby the credit of- the province might have -been seriously endangered.

A Calgary newspaper remarks that II. Hearst Is the ilrst Methodist Premier of Ontario. That wasn't the reason he was chosen; It was because he had been a good Tory all his life.
