The franco-American drive on the Rheims-Verdun front has broken through all the German liaes of defense, and ground which has been in German hands since > 1914 is being recovered, while up till Friday 16,000 prisoners had been taken. i ^ Hard flgatlng is ahe"ad here, but the * attack baa already produced results The other day I gava some, .figures showing.the reduction in the Cana- Regiment R.N.W.M.P.........:. 497 lISqu4d/on;?C^n�dianLigbj: Horse 13 In the class "available or about to become., .available," ,it was... estimated that 6580' were immediately available, 8618 in - one month, 9055 in two months, '8806 in three months, 8347 after three months, a total ot 41,406. to which areto be added 1392 actually-.under, orders. Proportion of "D" mett estimated as becoming "AI," 3720, permanent cadres who can be made available when required, 550, bringing the lotal up to 50,858. A study, of these figures should ee tablisb that .there. isV no overloading of the i^orce in Britain: The men are practically -' all' needed and the available men'for service will be sent over the Channel to France as soon as they are trained, and called for to fill vacancies in the ranks. The new administration has thus repaired to a great extent the-grievance and cause for criticism that formerly existed. other side of the ledger?" Germany has sacrificed the flower of her arms-bearing youth, continues the paper; she has placed a burden of debt upon her people under' which they will nave to groan for decades to come; she has brought'her people to want and hunger; she has destroyed her foreign commerce and demoralized her domestic commerce; she has lost her colonies; the: acts of her army commanders have brought her name into disrepute. � The editorial concludes as follows: Millions of: the people of Germany are-firmly convinced,;even-if they do not dare to speak of it openly, that the defeat of the present autocratic government would be a blessing for them and their posterity. They have at last seen through the motives of their rulers, whose purposes are-, selfish and aim at'the suppression of the Ideas ,of liberty and the forcing' of their hated government upon the whole world. For a long' time the German-Americans were unable to see the peril, and rude; /was .their awakening. Their sense of duty showed them the right course to pursue. They point'with pride'; to their Sons .and. grandsons fig'hting for, them'under the Star Spangled Banner. And they will fight on until every, danger is removed and the world relieved of a burden which lies upos.it like'aa incubus; for it is only through the overthrow of the -.present German government 'that a repetition of a similar world catastrophe can be prevented. f\ That sounds splendid. We hojfe it Is an honest oon'tessfoBfr it is certain^ ly,a.correc^ interpretation of the^Ger-man case. When the Germans j|ack:| in the homeland realize the situation, as tbe German-Americans are beginning to realize it, the Kaiser's throne will .begin to totter. The situation must, however, be characterized as critical," Admiral Hintze is reported to have said, "but it will be clearer in a few days and there is no reason to give Up the game in Bulgaria.'* Anti-War ^Agitation ' The Bulgarian plea.for an armistice was in response to anti-war agitation among the bulk of the people, the correspondent says in the dispatch from Copenhagen. The correspondent also hears that King Ferdinand himself played an active role in the peace move, until Germany countered his move. According to this report the king, realizing that the people were determined, to end the war. took'the initiative some time ago in intrigues for peace, hoping to save his throne and stave off a revolution. It was for this reason that he went "to Germany and the correspondent adds It was a curious fact that his whereabouts and actions since he returned> have been a mystery. A solution of �. the mystery is said to be that the Germans in Bulgaria realized that the king was turning against them and they practically kept him a prisoner, 'at any rate to an extent that prevented .him from taking a band in peace overtures. The Germans, however, were powerless against the popularity of Premier Mal-inoff, who, it is; recalled, while Bulgaria's policy was undecided, oppos-1 ed an. alliance with the central powers. .. Say It Is Official. London1; Sept 2S:--An official Bulgarian statement--dated Sept. 24 announces that. Bulgaria jhas submitted an appeal for .obtaining an armistice and .-peace. ' The text of the.official announcement reads: . ~V In view of the conjunction of" circumstances which have recently arisen and after- the. posltipahad been jointly discusBjed'wi&^a^i^nipetent^autnori-tles, the 'BBlgarian^overnment. desiring to. ~irot an'�ndr' to. the bloodshed, authorized the ^�oniniainder-in-chief of the army to propose to the generalissimo of t.he armies of the entente o'f Saloniki a cessation.of hostilities and the entering into negotiations to obtain an armistice and peace. 'The members of the Bulgarian delegation-left yesterday evening in order to- getfin touch with the plenipotentiaries-of the enemy-belligerents." This statement was*'' transmitted through, the German - semi-official Wolff Bureau, which add�d to the text the following note: 'The report of the departure of the delegation is incorrect"; The Wolff Bureau's note apparently was issued prior to the developments reported yesterday of the Bulgarian move which showed that emissaries from the Bulgarian government bad got into touch w.ith the commander of the entente armies in the Macedonian war theatre. London.Comment London1 morning newspapers; while considering that .ad farmistice is not a necessary, preliminary to. a discussion of peace, recognize the admission of a separate-peace with, gulgaria. They insist, however; on 'the carrying, out of the allied policy inS^he Balkans and the safeguarding of!the interests of 'Serbia, Rumania and Greece. > If Bulgaria wants to negotiate, we are willing, but it is not lively that an armistice, will'be granted," says the Chronicle. The only possible guarantee, declares the Telegraph, is the surrender of the "Bulgarian armies and the submission of the Bulgarian people to the allies "who seek: justice and not vengeance." Bulgar Parliament Knew. Copenhagen, Sept. 28.-The leaders of the ministerial bloc of the Bulgarian parliament, according to advices from Sofia, published tbe following official note in connection with the government's proposal for an armistice: x "In accordance with ofders of the leaders of the ministerial bloc the government at 5 0,'clock Wednesday mrfde an official offer ot an armistice to the adversary. The leaders of the bloc are in accord that the army and the people must maintain milrtliry and public discipline, which is so necessary for a happy issue in theno times, which are decisive for the recently begun work of peace. "Parliament has been summoned to meet on Sept. 30." Food Caused It. Paria, Sept. .28.-Bulgaria's offer of peace to the allies was the result of a meeting held on- Monday and attended by.>all.the political leaders of Bulgaria,: (iniclutllng Vasefl Radosh* voff, the'Liberal leader, and members of the cabinet.
