The offensive is taken at any point at any time he indicates. Evidently he is bent on holding every part of the German- line strictly on the watch for a break, thus preventing Von Hindenburg from re; leasing men tor any other front. But we may expect the big offensive to continue at the Somme. A great square wedge is being driven into the Hun lines there, and with pressure exert- ed at strategic points on other parts of the front it is a case of the allies, smashing through-at the Somme or Hindenburs drawing back his lines to conserve men.

This old phrase was never more true than In tie present conflict'and no- Tvhere more so than In Britain, where conscription of men and government control of wealth have been two ot the outstanding events of .the past-year.- _And now come despatches from the Old Land telling us of tentative pro- posals by the British cabinet whereov, after tie war, laws will" be enacted will tend toward a more even distribution of wealth. Socialistic ift the extreme would such a plan be in etaid England, where radical reforms have been opposed to. the bitter end; Sut war, -with, its levelling of distinc lions created by wealth and position, has paved the way. Much has been done the war demanded it and the evident argument it that if it strengthens the nation in time of war: ;l it cannot be amiss in times of peace Britain has become most democrats during this conflict, just how democra tic one is able to judge by the fac that .the country's leaders would take the present opportunity for aanounc became the world's car- rier, and a leader in peaceful pursuits, because..she. did not hedge herself about with restrictions on trade.

BRITAIN'S' FUTURE TRADE POLICY High protectionist organs in Canada are harping load and long over the ap- parent trend pi public opinion in Great Britain toward protective tariff aa a m. means of strengthening the Empire n against such aggressive commercial -propogandlst nations as Germany The recent action of the Trades Union Con- gress of Britain, meeting at Birmmg ham, m adopting "a resolution favor- ing the principles of protection in meeting cheap labor conditions in oth- er lands" is pointed out by the high protectionists m Canada to be the death knell of free trade In Britain And they chortle with glee. But there should De no hastj jump- ing at conclusions, for at a subsepuent session of the same convention Presi- dent Harry Gosling was cheered to the echo, whea he said: "Many, there are, some tiffin sordid motives, others with a desire for revenge who speak exultantly of trade wars and -tarifi wars. We are not going to let it be supposed that we. countenanced GUI- entry Into this terrible war for the purpose of capturing German trade Our motives, I ineair motives of the majority, in- entering this war were to enforce, the recognl lion of..treaties." The action of the congress In adopt- ing Its so called protectionist tton seems to be quite counter (o the sentiments protectionists would like to display as the collapse of free trade fir t glance the two do not gibe. But a little study of conditions and trade polio and war. In the United States .there has been tormed a Free Trade League, In which many leading citizens are members, and one orth6 eague's leading arguments is that free trade goes hand in hand with .world disarmament and the International ar- litration of disputes between nations. This move m a high tariff country like the'-tinned States is significant. So we say, it is too early yet to jump to the conclusion that Britain is joing to abandon free trade because of tie war Wiat we "Will likely see will'oe that, it Prussianism is com pletely' crushed by the .present con flict, if the Allied victory is as com plete it is hoped it will be, Britain wil clontinue her free trade policy and enjoy in trade, whereas If thi victory Is less complete and anothe war in the near future looms up, sh might consider the adoption of pro tectionfst policy not so ranch in th hope of strengthening herself as o town hotel in Minneapolis, and ex pired on the way to the hospital.

The people know the facts and by this misrepresentation caused serious doubts to arise in the miiidb of the electors as to the accuracy of other reports appearing in those pap ers. Here again we find that the government party have-overplayed the part the same as they have done in connection with their malicious false hoods in connection uith the so called plugging operations at the by-elections at Vanpouver last -w Inter, and the farce that they have made out of the Agricultural Credits Act These things have all been badly overplayed and have acted as. a boomerang A further study of the Public Ac- counts reveals the interesting fact that while the civil government sal- ary-total has leaped from to in six years tlie employ- ment of parties not connected with the civil service for work which should have been performed by of- ficials of one or other of the depart- ments has also increased. Logically we should have expected exactly the opposite, that with the expansion ot the civil service and. tlie quadrupling of its cost payments for work done by -outside parties should have de clined proportionately. Instead there has been a greater recourse to-otit side agents, middlemen, and. royal commissioners than, ever; fortunes have been expended for services which could have been performed promntly and efficiently by the regul ar departmental officials, much more so, in fact, than they have been per formed by the outsiders. This was particularly.noticeable -in the case of royal. commissions. rAt one time no less than ten were in full swing. The cost ot the labor commission in 1913-14 was and last year another commission was appointed to cover, precisely the same ground. The cost of the agri cultural commission in 1913-14 was 673 In the year previous to that the two bodies cost more.than A Vancouver lawyer was .appointed to investigate the coal situation at a cost of and nothing more was heard of the matter, of course, after his report was pigeonholed.
