THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The situation created in Russia by the revolt of General Kornlloff, and his following army is very serious from the standpoint of Russia itself ao well as that of tho allies.

So far as the Herald can learn, the people of LethbrUge do not seem to care much one way nor an- other. But so far as Ihe enfranchise- ment of all the women of Canada is concerned, there is no room for argu- ment, anil Sir Robert Borden ought to know It by this moment to civil war creates a much wore serious situation. British papers are not inclined to regard Gen. Korniloff as a traitor but rather aa a man who sees the neces- sity ot a stern dictatorship for the Rua- slin people in their present frame of mind. The revelations regarding Sweden's connection "with the plols to destroy Argentine shipping also create a new situation which may tend to bring about a new alignment ot powers, and a new enemy iato the camp against the allies. Sweden's secret friendship for Germany has long been suspected, but the revelations made in yesterday's dispatches will tend to bring into the open her real attitude and possibly a break in bar neutrality. j ect a little of Ihe boost spirit The fighting on the Italian front don't mep.n the "boom" continues to be of the fiercest natnre s But we have a righl [0 boosl with the advantage with the Italians. FIXING THE PRICE OF .THE FARMER'S WHEAT. The farmer who said to the Herald yeiterday that the farmer seemed to be the. ot government food con- trol seems ;to have eorne grounds for his complaint, and unless the food con- trollers caa manufacture some way to even matters up the government's action in 'setting a fixed price, for wheat is going to become mighty un- popular. 's If the law of supply and demand Is going to decide the price of .labor, the price of steel which goes Into tho manufacture of farmer's implements, the cost of the coal which he buys, the cost of twine he uses, the cost In fact ot everything which the farm- er is forced to buy on the open mar- ket, then why should not the law of supply and demand govern the price of the rcain produce of the western Canada farmer? arc not arguing against the prin- ciples of fixing prices, but what we do object to is the principle of firing the price of what the farmer has to sell and refusing to fii Ihe price of what ho has to-buy. If It Is right lo fll the price of wheat, then It Is right r to fix the price of flour, of bacon, of binder twlno, of farm labor, of thresh- ing, of groceries, of binders and the hundred and one pther .things the tanner buy in order to be able to prodace'wheat at a fiied price.
