When nn Increase In allowance is virtually agreed upon.' there Is is the inevitable celticism that the amount Is not sudleicnt. Very properly also It is maintained that the soldiers land settlement should utilize the undeveloped lands oC the speculators, Indian reserves anil grazing leases, in well settled sections of the west. The Herald has been an advocate of that policy from the beginning. The government is likely to acquire much of the speculator's land Rt any rate, but, because It has not already acquired It. there is fault finding. People forget that It is a big problem and cannot be arranged In a day or a week. In a matter involving such an extreme departure, the government must not act hastily Great amounts of money will have to be expended and millions of acres of land taken over, with proper consideration of the present Ito'ders of the land j Mrs M(,rvln ,,.,>�. wife of the man Grazing lease* cannot be CRiicellcd j ;1!fpr 0f t|,,.

Mr. Citizen, would you like to atrike a good, hard blow for civil-Izatlon. your Empire, your country, your family, and all the things you hold most dear? Of course, you would If you are a true Canadian-a hundred per cent. Canadian. Well, very ihortly you will have In the 1918 Victory Loan your chance to ttrike that blow- the moat direct blow that can poss-ibly be atruck by you at German infamy and savagery. There it only one amwer to make to the method* of the caveman that Germany has employed In this war. That answer Is the utter smashing of the German armies and of the vile German system that has made those armies and their methods possible. Our troops are in France to give that answer. They are win. nlng the war on the battlefield -that civilization may be secure, that Canada may be safe for you and for those who shall coma after you. Your part Is to back them up. The Victory Loan will do it. Our boy* are giving to the limit. Be It yours to lend to the limit.

A lease that may appear to be line agricultural land may prove on investigation to be otherwise. The govern ment should no; open land for sold- (,nvn ters' settlement that is declared l>y' exports to bo unrlt tor farming. All leases, whore the land- is fit for .ic-rlculfurr. should, as soon as tiiey expire, be taken into the scheme of soldiers' settlement, and It it is possible to posses? them before the year of expiry, so much the better. In the case of Indian reserves wo know that there is much desirable agricultural land that has n�ver boon cultivated. That is the case on the Wood Indian reserve. The Indians on that re-erve -have consented to sell certain lands j .\ by public auction antl the government vi.-c hopes to be able to possess that land for the soldiers.

Rumania word to strike. is just waiting the THE CRITICS OF THE UNION GOVERNMENT In war time, as we have often observed, it is the habit to blame the government for either being too drastic or not draBtlu enough. Food regu-<: latlons are demanded and then when 'they are proclaimed, there is the class .that protests and criticises because ,Of their existence. Tho government either goes too far or does not go far apough^and it is consequently battered from two sides. So It is with Military Service. Compulsion with some people is a splendid method of raising an army prpvided'U affects the ptbtfr  (allow only. We have very that the enemy aliens should be treat- ignorance of the purpose of the gov- ed. at least on the same basis as our own citizens of military age.
