William a Smith one of the american commanders recently promoted by president Wilson. News review of the past week two new pro ally republics Are established in Northern part of Russia. Problem of Aid unsolved von Huntze German to succeed von Kuehlmann italians and French conducting successful offensive against the austrians in Southern Albania. By Edward w. Pickard. What shall we do to help Russia was still the leading question for the governments of the Allied nations last week. Developments though they were in the main favourable to the Allied cause had not greatly clarified the situation. It seems apparent that Germany too is in doubt As to what course to pursue in the near Bast her policy of terrorism and grab All has not been working out Well and has caused bitter complaint even in the reach Stag. The people of the Mummau coast Between Finland and the White Seu where there Are Large Allied military stores under guard of British and american forces have created the White sea Republic and in the rest of Arctic Russia from the White sea to Siberia the Republic of Wologa Ezher has been established. Both of these new states Are anti German and pro ally and their people Promise to form Active forces against the Teutons if Given nid. In Western Siberia the bolshevik have been Defeated again and Are reported to have evacuated Irkutsk and a provisional government for Siberia has been set up in . This government has Laid out a program that includes the liberation of Siberia from the bolshevik the avoidance if possible of foreign intervention Universal suffrage distribution of the land among the landless and other economic reforms. It intends to summon a constituent Assembly and to restore Law and order. All this is being done under the Protection of the2.unny of Czecho slovaks that has continued its victorious Campaign against the bolshevik and the German and austrian War prisoners who Are aiding them. Thus there appears to be forming the established authority that has been considered requisite for the extending of Aid to the russians it least in Siberia. But president Wilson would not consent to the dispatch of tin armed Force that would mean the weakening of the Western front in Europe and doubtless the other Allied leaders agreed with him. Furthermore or. Wilson especially is averse to departing from the policy of noninterference in the internal affairs of u Friendly nation. This does not mean that the allies will abandon the plan to Send to Siberia supplies from America and a commission to extend help of in Industrial and economic nature. Moreover the Czecho slovaks there Are doing so in Lumble a work that the entente Powers intend to give them such moral and material support As they May need provided they stand by their pledge to refrain from assuming permanent control Over the country through which they Are passing. If a military Force is sent into Siberia it probably will to in rely made up of japanese and chinese. Ibs through German sources comes the assertion that the soviet government of Russia has declared it will ally itself with Germany if an Anglo japanese expedition intervenes in Siberia. No doubt Lenyne would commit him self to such a course but it is a question whether he would 1,3 sustained by any great numbers of russians. Germany s penetration of Western Russlyn and Finland has been accompanied by such brutalities that the minority socialists jul the reach Stag have been attacking the governments policy strongly. Their Leader Hugo Hanse asserts that since the germans entered Finland 78,000 workmen hive been arrested and Many of them including 00 socialist members of parliament executed. Because of the numerous executions there he sold the town of Seaborg has been renamed Golgotha. Finland is on the Point of starvation despite its German friends and general Mannerheim commander of the finnish army asked or. Morris american minister to Sweden what Chance there was for Finland to get food from the United states. . Morris told him plainly it was very slim so Long As Germany held the country under her control. Ostensibly As a measure to save food the finnish government has ordered the expulsion of All jews. Jas when the news came of the assassination of count von Myrbach German ambassador to Russia in Moscow at the instigation of a group of social revolutionists there were Many predictions that the Kaiser would get revenge by sending a great army to occupy the chief russian cities and indeed it was Semi officially stated in Berlin that such would be his course. But after breaking off diplomatic relations the chief Hun apparently thought better of it and a mild statement was issued hoping that the russian government and people will succeed in nipping the present revolutionary agitation in the it is not easy to see How Germany would gain much by further grabbing in distracted and starving Russia. -1kb the German party triumphed Over its opponents and forced the resignation of foreign minister von Kuehlmann because of his peace impossible by Force speech and then proceeded to pick Admiral von Hintze the trickiest and most disreputable of Teuton diplomats As his successor. Great excitement in the reach Stag resulted and the socialists agreed not to vote the War credit which could not be passed without their Aid until fhe new minister had announced his policies. Von Hintze is a swashbuckling Militarist and the creature of Admiral von Tirpitz. As minister to China he disgraced himself and As minister to Mexico he deliberately stirred up a Row Between Huerta and carry non in order to embroil the United states. The French press accepts the selection of von Hintze As evidence that the militarists in Germany Are stronger than the diplomats and Are determined upon a War to the finish. They believe he will do the germans much More harm than Good. Military operations of prime importance last week were confined to Albania a Field of which Little has been heard for a Long time. There the italians and French got very Busy and with the Aid of British naval forces in the Adriatic started an offensive that met with considerable Success and is still progressing As this is written. Within a few Days the Allied forces had advanced More than Twenty five Miles on n Battle front sixty Miles Long bad captured Fieri an important town eight Miles from the Adriatic and had practically surrounded Berat the chief City of Southern Albania. They also had occupied Mountain positions of great strategic value. Before the week closed the austrian had evacuated Berat this albanian offensive was counted on to have great political effect especially in Austria Hungary and among the Small nations of the. Balkans. Already it had caused evident uneasiness among the forces of the Central Powers that face the allies from the Adriatic to Salonika. In Macedonia they Mode several costly and vain attacks on the allies. The apparent objective of the allies in Albania is the she umbel Valley and the old roman Roud the via Ignatia leading to the Verdor Valley and opening the Way to n movement toward the East that would outflank the enemy North of monastic. If the austrians Are decisively Defeated in this Region the Kelsor May Force them to accept von below As their Generalissimo despite their protests. The efforts to Germanizue the austrian general Headquarters have stirred up to already angry people of the dual kingdom. Another Row there caused or less open assertions that Empress Zeta ruined the offensive on Italy by preventing the use of Gas and otherwise hampering the commanders. A Blair scandal resulted and extremists in Vienna Are asserting that both the emperor and the Empress should be literally sequestered and made to take orders from Berlin. Hungary too is furious it Austria because the hungarian regiments were forced to Bear the Brunt of the attack in Italy and in some cases were practically wiped out. A there were no major operations on the italian front last week but the italians unceasingly harassed the enemy by raids and sorties and in the Mountain Region improved their own positions considerably. The american aviators on that front kept up their excellent work. the Western front there was in ominous silence on the part of the huns. The usual 40 Days needed by them to organize a new drive had nearly expired but still they did not Start. However abnormal activity was observed behind their lines especially in the regions where the americans arc stationed. tuesday the French undertook the first considerable in fan try operation in Many Days and with the Aid of tanks advanced More than a mile on a front of two and a half Miles Northwest of comp Leone. Prisoners and gun were captured and positions occupied that serve to protect the important railway Junction at entrees st. Denis. General Petain also took important ground East of the Retz Forest on the Marne front. There were Many raids by All the Allied forces during the week and some artillery activity beyond the Ordinary in the British sectors. Is such splendid work is being done by the air forces of the allies on the West front that military observers now assert the superiority in the air now unquestionably rests with them. The British flyers have engaged in a number of extraordinary exploits and the French and americans Are keeping up their end of it most satisfactorily. wednesday a Squadron of american scout planes flew Back of the German lines in the chateau Thierry Region for 50 Miles obtaining valuable information and All returning safely. Colonel Roosevelt was elated by the news that his youngest son Lieut. Quentin Roosevelt had downed his first Hun plane. Bombing raids on German cities by the Allied airmen Are increasing in frequency and effectiveness. Tain preparation for the next big drive von Hindenburg called for a million More men to be the factories their places being filled by prisoners and foreigners and contrary to agreements by exchanged prisoners of War. Recruits of sixteen seventeen and eighteen years Are being called and everything indicates that the supreme command is straining every nerve to end the War this year. To encourage the troops there has been n systematic campy Len to mislead them As to America s participation in the War. The people now refuse to believe we Are taking an Active part in the conflict or that there Are Mora than a few thousands of our men in France. Pc there have been Many stories of the declining morale of the German troops due partly to the prevalence of Spanish influenza but it would be foolish to grow optimistic Over these reports. The enemy is still Strong and can produce in amazing number of men and Confidence in our Victory must be based on our growing strength rather than on his growing weakness. The Stream of americans across a Atlantic continues although it May be they Are not being sent so rapidly just now As in recent months. The War department recently decided that All men of the new drafts should be Given six months training on this Side. The Senate gave a big boost to the plan for a Bone dry America by voting in favor of the prohibition rider to the agricultural Extension Bill. It went on record first by reversing the ruling of the chair that the amendment is general legislation and therefore barred from an appropriation measure. The wets admitted their defeat since the move for War prohibition originated in the lower House and relied on the president to veto the Bill on the ground that the workers in vital War industries should not be deprived of alcoholic beverages. Wilson vetoes $2.40 wheat says patriotic Farmers do not need increase of stimulate production. Would add to living Cost arbitrary basis is not fair to the producer or consumer asserts president in message to Congress. Washington july 15-president Wilson vetoed on Friday the annual agricultural appropriation Bill containing an amendment increasing the Price of wheat to 2.40 per Bushel. Members of Congress from wheat growing states will make a fight to pass the Bill Over the veto but indications Are that the wheat Price provisions will be eliminated. The president s message said the increase i the Price of wheat would add ?2 to the Cost of a barrel of hour and would add $387,000,000 to the Price of the 900,000,000 Bushel crop of 1018 wheat. The president s message follows i regret to return without my signature so important a measure As h. R. 9054, entitled an act making appropriations for the department of agriculture for the fiscal year ending june 30, 1913, but i feel constrained to do so because of my Earnest dissent from the Point of View of principle As Well As Wise expediency from tie provisions of that part of Section 14 which prescribes a uniform minimum Price for no. 2 Northern Spring wheat of $2.40 a Bushel. I dissent upon principle because i believe that such inelastic legislative Price provisions Are i susceptible of being administered in a Way that will be advantageous either to the producer or to the consumer establishing As they do arbitrary Levels which Are quite Independent of the Normal Market conditions. It is evident that the present method of determining the Price to be paid for wheat has had the most stimulating effect upon production the estimated crop of Spring wheat for this year exceeding All High records in a very remarkable and Gratifying Way. By an overwhelming majority of the Farmers of the United states the Price administratively fixed has been regarded As fair and Liberal and objections to it have come Only from those sections of the country where unfortunately it has in recent years proved impossible to rely upon climatic conditions to produce a full crop of wheat and where therefore Many disappointments to the Farmer have proven to be unavoidable. Personally i do not believe that the Farmers of Tje country depend upon the stimulation of Price to do their utmost to serve the nation and the world at this time of crisis by exerting themselves to in extraordinary degree to produce the largest and Best crops possible. Their patriotic spirit in this matter has been worthy of All Praise and has shown them playing a most admirable and Gratifying part in the full mobilization of the resources of the country. To a very greatly increased production of wheat they have added an increased production of almost every other important Grain so that our granaries Are Likely to overflow and the anxiety of the nations arrayed against Germany with regard to their food supplies has been relieved. The administrative method of agreeing upon a fair Price has this very great advantage which any element of rigidity would in Large part destroy namely the advantage of flexibility of rendering possible it every stage and in the View of every change of experience a readjustment which will be fair alike to producer and co Sunter. A fixed minimum Price of 2.40 a Bushel would it is estimated add 52 a barrel to the Price of flour in other words raise the Price of flour from the present Price of $10.50 to $12.50 at the Mill and inasmuch is we Are anticipating a crop of approximately 900,-000,000 bushels of Whent this increase would be equivalent to the immense sum of $387,000,000. Such an increase in the Price of wheat in the United states would Force a corresponding increase in the Price of Canadian wheat the increase would also add very materially to the Cost of living and there would inevitably ensue an increase in the wage paid in practically every Industry in the country. These added financial and economic difficulties affecting practically the whole world cannot i assume have been in contemplation by the Congress in passing this legislation.

Built along modern lines Eastern journal gives excellent example of How subdivision May be Laid out to advantage. We have recently received circulars describing one real estate development now under Way which excellently illustrates a new stand of the employer. In this Case the manufacturer had a tract of Well wooded land rising from n River Bank in a gentle slope acquired at a reasonable Price several Yeara ago and offering every Opportunity for enlightened treatment. Half a Century ago this would have been defaced by the erection of primitive Barracks overhanging the River built As near each other As possible and run up into the air As Many stories As the most exhausted employee could manage to climb at the end of of the Day s work. A pestilential eyesore would have been created to dishearten those condemned to dwell within it and to rebuke the town it defaced. Under the new dispensation another motive prevailed. A first class architect experienced in town planning was employed the acreage available for the settlement it was desired to founds was studied a Street plan based on the natural advantages of the site and avoiding the wasteful and extravagant Checkerboard system too prevalent in the past was Laid out accessibility of the nearby City the company s works and the established centers of Public interest was considered the exposures of the various lots received the weight they deserved and a comprehensive plan for the Community was worked out. Art for Art s Sake was not encouraged but Art As an efficient Handmaiden of practicability had a free hand. Monotonous uniformity of houses was avoided by modifications of the Standard types adopted based on the site chosen for each Structure. Two principal thoroughfares crossing the tract were made Broad enough for general traffic the other streets Are narrow As to Roadway but Well equipped As to tree planting space grass plots and sidewalks. The common error of attempting to make every residential Street a Boulevard was avoided the not infrequent mistake of establishing alleys was not committed.

While one May place upon paper very artistic lines governing the ground plan of a Garden it is equally necessary in Tho preservation of Art that the sky line should be artistically broken up and not present a monotonous appearance such As is produced by the top line of a hedge or Fence or Wall.
