The invad- ers claim further successes south of Xish and It is likely they itill come into contact with the allied forces very shortly. Welcome news comes that Russia and Italy are .also likely to be able to co-operate in the new Balkan campaign. On the east, :tne Russians have practically put an end to tie German offensive. The Teuton utterlv failed, 10 give them any com- manding positioa over tie Russians on which they misht rest-for the witt- ier.

People imagine a gov- held responsible by the voters who object to this kind of business. It Is by an uprising of the people against tlie system that patronage will be abolished. Patronage very rarely iTa man's sen-ice to his. party rather than his possibility ot giving good ser- ._ of their own political shade, they eel that they have the right to charge t a higher price for everything than oey would to an ordinary individual, nd the government in many in- tances is held up in this way because desire? to. avoid offence to its I party supporter. Patronage, as it has developed in his country is a curse. The country, he governments and the men to. pub- ic life, would be a hundred times metit who handle the patronage them- selves, and who see to it that men are not removed without good reason, and that when appointments are made the public Interest should be the first con- sideration. They are the exception rather than Since the war commenced patronage has run riot In all kinds of .contracts, .for. the pro- visioning of troops, the favors have gone solely to party and good loyal citizens of the other party have been Missed by they wore on the wrong sido. They weren't oven asked to .tender.

Very Jew men In public life vu'iue It, yet they are ntralel to kill it. They know that for every man appointed to a lob there are a score disappointed. From the cold political standpoint, it makes more enemies 'than it does friends, and yet for sorno reason so far hard to explain, patronage is allowed to proceed on its course of damaging the administration of public affairs. What we need In this country is an. intelligent lurblic opinion that' will Oive Its support to polttcal partios on account of the principles, they'repre- sent, anil the attitude they take on im- portant issues. As It is now, many men support a party because they think they can get something out of it, a job or a contract. The bulk of the electors, we believe, ore sincere in their convictions, and have no personal ends to serve when they give their allegiance to a party. Un- der such circumstances it ought to be easy to shake off the patronage sys tern, the greatest curse of 'party poi itics. It will never be abolished unit: both parties agree.
