THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Pressing their advantage so sud- denly and dramatically gained at Ver- dun, the French troops are 'extending their gains, and are now almost upon the fort of Vans, another point hotly contested for in the famous battle of the days gone by.

In a community of Eng- lish-Canadians, the father of a family of eisht children, none of them old enough to work for a living, would be considered a fool to enlist, and the managers of the Patriotic Fund would have something to say about the ab- surdlty of accepting such men so long as there were still plenty of unmarried men available. Then why criticize the French-Canadian for things we would deprecate In an English-Cam- Uuder a system of national service the French-Canadian farmer In the vast majority of cases, would be ad- vised by the local tribunal that he could best serve his country by stick- ing to hia work, and doing his utmost to increase production. As a result, he could apply himself to his regular occupation with the feeling of inward satisfaction that comes from doing SailSLKUlIUU one's duty, and the stigma that now latest venture have been exceedingly light, and the advantages gained have tnpn rflsllv tremendous.

QUEBEC AND [THE WAR Hare "we been just to Quebec? Likely most of us bear, down in our hearts, a suspicion that Quebec is shirking; that it is not doing its duty Jn this war. We. offer many criticisms, place the blame on many heads, and yet we do not understand Quebec. The people there are not of our race. they do not know old France, for their forefathers left it centuries ago. They 'know only Canada, and there has been propagated a doctrine amongst them by eloquent men, Bourassa and Lavergne and others of that school, that they should not shoulder the mus- ket unless Canada was to danger. They were to keep out of European wars and attend to their business us Canadians. They have been told that In the present war it was none of their tuslness to fight Canada had no voice In declaring the war, and consequently It was not our business to participate it has been give] In a war that Canada was not reapon- to the present. Bible lor. We. fe" such argu- ments nave been advanced by leaders of the people in the other pro- vinces, it would have had its effect upon recruiting, and why should we te surprised that.it has caused the French Canadians to hold back. It is >-ell for us, those of us at least who sre ararJouB that a united Canada should exist, to do our utmost to un- derstand Quebec. Industrial Canada, the organ of the Canadian manufac- turers association, deals with the sit- from a new point of view in a recent Article, and we do not hesitate to publish that article in full, if for BO other reason than we should have appreciation our fellow citizens in the province of Quebec "Here Is the article: The Trades and Labor Congress of Cicada, like the' Nationalists of Qae havejcome put flat-footed against conscription. In a way we don't blame them for voicing their objections to a thing with so ugly a name. As a mat ter of fact, the thing would never have had such name, and would never have had so many enemies in Canada if our government had been possessed of sufficient foresight to bring In a reasonable act to provide for national service, and to see to it that the fea turea which such a measure would naturally. Include were thoroughly u derstood by all classes. Supporters of the government are accustomed to reply, when national service is urged upon them, that it is political impossibility because of attitude ol'Quebec. Despite the opin- ion of men who ought to have better opportunities for feeling the pulse of quebec than we have, we feel no hesi- tation in expressing pur firm convic- tion that national service would be Welcomed In Quebec, if Quebec only understood what national service really meant. The French-Canadian has been fed tap by men 61 the Bourassa type with arguments against conscription until, to judge by the press of that province, s revolt might. ensue from any attempt to bring it Into lorce.

The first load hauled to the Farm- ers' Elevator came In on Tuesday. Ow- mj, however, to the accident on that day no more business wilt be accepted until an expert has thoroughly over- hauled the engine. Threshing which started on Satur- day has continued steadily and good results are being announced. A. H.

Bishop, the foreman of the construction gang who was injured on Tuesday morning, Is getting along well. It was expected at first that he would lose an eye, but with care he will be able to save it. W J. Lott left ou Wednesday for trip to Calgary, Olds and other points. While away he will visit his farm in the Hanna district. Rev Mr. Boneof theCalgary Y.M.C. is collecting in this district for the work among the soldiers. This is a very splendid work and deserves good support. Now that the Farmers' Elevator is completed, and also the additional ac- commodation at the Noble Elevator, Nobleford has an elevator capacity of over bushels. If cars could be regularly obtained Ms capacity would sufficient, but under present cir- cumstances it Is not nearly enough.

Your correspondent has authority to that the statement which ap- peared on Monday to the effect that C. S. Noble intends to reside In Bar- ons has no foundation. Mr. Noble is quite well satisfied with this district, and while he dnns not hide the fact that he is very keen on the advant- ages of a consolidated school, yet ho finds the farmers around sympathelc with the idea is expecting to wait a here so that he give his children the little and advantages ot the local consolidated school. Mr. Noble also agrees with other leading agriculturists that inflated prices do not boost a country, and while improv- ed land is worth a good price, yet it is not fair to suggest that all the land In thin district is worth per acre. Mrs. Jas. McDowell, who has been receiving medical attendance at Coal- hurst for the past week, arrived home on Wednesday.

Prom several places we have e present building used'. heard suggestions, the most common "post" officeand telephone ex- -be ing that_of _a ought much The i ao up It seems to us after reading this i article that there is a right and a wrong way of dealing with Quebec, and- that up to the present we have taken the wrong way. The pity of it is that, without having given Quebec the opportunity to serve in the right way, we have censured and criticised Quebec until the French people ot that province have come to think that we are against them, and now they have their backs against the wall and are not willing to move in the direction we would like. Considering all the circumstances, probably we are as much to blame as Quebec. It should be our endeavor as true Cana- dians, not as partisans or bigots, to cultivate better understanding of Quebec. H we did that we might find that Quebec would work better in tan- dem than we have been allowing it to do, travelling singly, cut off as it were from the rest of us. Quebec, at least, should he given a fair chance to do its part, and dd you really think j it has been given that fair chance np change and will erect a larger office on the site, new office will contain at least three compartments. It is expected that the old building will be altered to serve as a dwelling house. Becker Yates are building, an office at their new lumber yard, and the Co-opera- tive Eflevator company will erect a house for their local agent.

In our judgment he has already arrived. He is the biggest and ablest man !n the Tory party, and had he been at the head of the govern- ment, it would not have lost the pres- tige it has lost through Sam Hughes and Bob Rogers. Sir Thos. White would hsve been boss or somebody else would have been premier. Sir Edmund Walker, at the closing rally of the British Red Cross cam- paign in Toronto, related an incident that caused much merriment. "We received only one refusal he observed, "and that came by mail from a Scotsman living in a very pro-Ger- man community In the United States. He says he Is a Scotsman, and I'm afraid he is. He writes: 'I wouldn't give a dollar to any society that woulo take care of wounded German." That Scotsman would be a fine ex- ponent of the gospel of hate.
