THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Never since the beginning at tlie war have conditions on ail fronts ap- peared so favorable to the allies. Cer- tainly never have the British forces shown the same success on the offen- sive as they did during the latter part of last week. With the taking of Flers, Courcelletie and Martinpaich and in- tervening woods, the German third line was pierced. It is-hardly to be expected that the Huns can prepare guch strong lines of. defence as those that have been broken since July_ 1. and faster progress may now con- fidently be expected, if it is within the plans of the allied war council to push their gains at the Sorniue to the limit.

Tho 'MS is reauired lo be securely closed and sealed, and to be scnf to the deputy provincial secre- tary at Victoria. After the required four weeks following the dale of the election at home have elapsed, "the deputy provincial secretary shall open tiio buss, and after exhibiting them to enter in a poll book tho mime ot each voter, his rank and tllo name of the military.unit in which he is serving or last served." The aarnq official "shall then open the en- velopes and put the ballots, without being ope'ned or examined, into a bal- lot box. After all such ballots have been PO deposited each box' shall be tV.e votes counted.'1 -But.'" says the act. "if any bag or envelope appeal's to have been opened the envelope or bas stall he de- stroyed." The counting of the votes on pro- hibition and woman's suffrage does not take place until January 1. It is easily understood why it is so freely.charged that the.soldiers' vote is open to manipulation. The provis- ions of the act provide all sorts of loopholes. Such an act could only be devised and adopted by a government fearful of the verdict of the people. The verdict of the people actually re- sident in B. been'so pronounced is hardly, likely the Bowserites will endeavor to manipulate tilings. If they do, there may be a revolution instead of a political upheaval in B. C. Bennett for Alberta leader! so with Geo.

Wh> THE SOLDIERS' VOTE IN BRITISH COLUMBIA Roughly, fiome thirty-one thousand men have been enrolled in the Cana- dian Expeditionary Forces from Bri- tish Columbia. If any one of those inot call them the Futurists? But prob- the "New Days'1 will remember the Bull Moose. "Calgary Centre of the Cold said a recent News-Telegram head line.

The milliard forces vot- ing act intended that the soldier in the trenches shoiild vote also, but the British war office eliminated that.fea- tlire of the act. Only the soldiers in camp, in nospital, or on leave are al- lowed to vote, and the time for polling these votes seems to be any old time at all. One thing is stated positively in the act, namely, that "within four from the election the deputy provincial secretary shall open the soldiers' vote in the presence of scru- tineers at That is, the re- sult of the campaign ended last will not be known for about four after' Sept. 14, the polling day.' A good deal could be said about the injustice of allowing votes to be taken at different places and at different tiisss, throughout, the Empire m'en and boys, many Jof re- turned to their former status in Bri- tish Columbia, would, be unable to exercise the franchise. Let-that'pasi The real travesty is bound up in the regulations attending the reception of the soldiers' ballot. Upon receiving a ballot paper, the volunteer according to the provisions of the act, may mark the same for whom he de- sires, "He shall fold it. and place the same in the envelope." "The en- so-called, has printed on ill front side an affidavit which requires the soldier to sign his name in full, denote his rank'and sol- emnly to affirm (1) that for six months immediately preceding his enlistment he had resided in such and such locality in such and such an electoral district in British Columbia; 12) that he has not marked any other ballot paper m connection with the present election; and (3) that he is a British subject and of tho male; sex.
