THE-PROQRESS Of THE WAR The .allies continue to keep the Ger man 'iines moving backward along the entire western front. The allies are .giving the Huns little opportunity in their race to "dig themselves i mew iines of defence before winter sets in. Unless the Germans have established a now trench system far In ttie rear of their old lines the ag of the allies will find the enemyin a bad way indeed when King Is enthroned. The fighting south of the Somme has developed into a battle for the -village ABlaincourt. where the Germans fere offering determined resistance to the Drench advance. North of th Somme the Trench are progressing north of Bouchavesnes. Rumania's plight In Transylvania ivhere the Teutonic forces appear t have gained the ascendency for ti moment, is receiving the attention o the allied powers. King Ferdinar. himself is to take command ot th armies, and large numbers of Russian re-inforcements are-being sent. Th Rumanians are offering gallant resis tance and in some places have recov- ered lost ground. Th'e submarine menace on the U. S Atlantic coast has been dealt Kith b the neutrality board, which is said t favor strenuous measures to put stop to' the latest outrage of the Huns SUPPORT THE BYLAW TOMORROW Tomorrow the ratepayers are aske to go to. tho polls and'give their assen to a bylaw to raise some for extensions to the electric light depart- ment lines. Half ot the money, is to be used in carrying the electric lights to Stafford village. The remainder is for other extensions already made or planned. There should be no opposition to tie bylaw. "The mcuey. is being spent on extensions to a public utility and the returns on the investment will take care of the interest on the debt and make a profit besides. The more light and power the electrical depart- ment can sell the better, and any ex- tension .--which will increase sales should he encouraged. the majority of the Conservative will likely decide that while It might lave been bad politics to adopt the il'oasurev'l't would hi) worse politics to ampiir with It now that H has been doptcd, VSei. it seems to assume hat Ontario dry for three vears.

That is the case'in Alberta. What about the United States? ,'rederick M. Davenport, a well known political writer, who accompanied Pre- sidential Candidate Hughes on his vestern tour, contributed an article to he N'ew York Outlook on his Impres- sions. Aniongst his observations are heso: "The friends and foes of prohibition are to try conclusions again this fall n California. Every great vineyard in Jalifornla has a great sign warning against it. But my best information s that there is a very strong probabil- ty that the first amendment proposed will win this time, and that saloons will be driven from the state of Call- lornia. In Washington and Colorado attempts are being made at the corc- ng election to modify the existing law. 3ut nothing could be more futile than the effort. In Washington even the conservative Blethen. of the Seattle Times, who fought prohibition bitterly, was out just before we came into the state with a declaration thai all the power of his papers would be turned against any step backward Like William H. Cowles. the very pro gressive owner of the Spokane papers in ihe eastern part of ihe stale, he holds that the economic results as well as the moral results of one year of prohibition are beyond price. And the same thing is true in Colorado Every witness of whom I made inquiry including Governor Carlson, who is prohibition's most valiant champion in the state, told me the same story The majority for it. if it were votet upon again, would be doubled and "Faulty Nutrition and are the cause of the most of the ailments that afflict human beings.

The only reference to women in the whole testimony was brought on by a question from Sir George B. Foster: Q. "Could woman labor he used ad A.
