Without  waiting to accomplish the envelopment of the Russians who are  falling  back   from the Vistula,  the Germans are endeavoring to  storm Kovno, advancing at the  same time on an extended front  between the Niemen and Dvina  oh  a dash  northward   towards  Riga; eastward towards Dvinsk  and   southward   towards   Vilna  Riga district,  the Russians are  taking the initiative.

The Dardanelles Will Soon Be Forced  Submarines Play Havoc  With  Turkish Ships  Sinking Battleship,  Gunboat and Torpedo Boat  London, Aug. 13.���������After sinking the Turkish battleship Kheys-  Ed-Din Barboressa, a gunboat and a torpedo boat, says a despatch to the Times from Mitylene,-the two British submarines  which accomplished the feat drew close to the shore and shelled  a column of Turkish troops marching towards the town of Gal-  lipoli, inflicting heavy losses upon them. The Allies in the Dardanelles are greatly elated at the sinking, of the Barboressa,  which was a thorn in their sides because of the accurate fire of  its high trajectory guns, which more than once hampered the  movements of allied ships approaching the gulf of Saros by firing across the peninsula. Foreigners in Turkey the Times despatch says, have been forced to discard hats and wear Turkish  fez's as a precaution against insults and illtreatment by natives.  Montreal, Aug. 13. ��������� "The Dardanelles will soon be forced,"  said Sergeant J. C. Smith a New Zealand soldier, who was wounded at the Gallipoli Peninsula and who passed through Montreal  yesterday on his way home to Auckland, via Vancouver. "About  eleven miles is all the Allies have to proceed now before Constantinople can be bombarded."

They  are working under the direction  of the military authorities.  The World's  Largest Volcanoes  in Eruption  Naples, Aug. 12.--Vesuvius,  Mount Etna and Stromboli, three  of the world's greatest volcanoes  have suddenly become active and  are belching forth great clouds  of steam and smoke. Streams  of lava are pouring down the  eastern slope of Mount Etna from  two new craters, threatening the  destruction of Casino Des Ingles  and other Sicilian villages. The  whole population of Naples,  Messina and other Sicilian cities  are in a state of terror.  . ���������              /  Indians Are Patriotic  Simla, India, Aug. 12.���������Intercession services are being held  in the churches, mosques, and  temples throughout India, all sections of the British and Indian  communities participating.

Our readers will be glad to  learn that the late rumors to the  effect that our popular fellow  townsman P. J. Kenyon, had  died on the field of battle are  exaggerated. Mr. H. G. Anderson is in receipt of a letter from  him datid at Shorncliffe Camp,  England,'July 6th of which the'  following is an extract:  "... The Germans did not  get me. I have been twice  wounded and have just reported  to th6 above Canadian base to  await the next batch to France.  "I guess you read about our  doings at Ypres and Festubert.  We had a very lively time. I am  thankful to be alive today. Dick-  Lees is reported missing; I think  he was killed at Ypres along with  Green, who was blown to pieces  by a shell. ...  "Corp. P. J. Kenyon."  Mr. R. Lowe is another man  well known to many of us from  the time he was surveying in this  locality is also with the army.  He holds a commission as lieutenant with the 3rd Scottish  Horse, and he writes to Mr. Anderson from Stannington, Northumberland, where he is still  training with his regiment.  There are seven regiments of the  Scottish Horse ready and they  are hoping to go almost immediately to the front. There is a  possibility that they will go as  dismounted troops.

SATURDAY,  AUG. 14, 1915.  Political Strife.  - "Some of the Liberal campaigners in this province are beginning  - to show impatience over Mr.  Bowser's delay in making aVan-"  couv.er speech on the B. C.- crisis.  They seem to be looking for something which will provoke an interest in their own speeches.-'  Meanwhile the electors are giving  attention to a much larger and  more serious crisis."-���������News-Advertiser.  The Conservative press in this  '. province is very much opposed to  any political discussions taking  place during the war. We,have  referred to this-matter before;  but we return-to it again because  tire change of front on the part  of the government and such  change neither will nor can be  made by the party in power. It  is lacking both in will and ability.  The voters must be roused,^their  attention called to this state of  affairs, and they must be appealed to,' to turn out' of power a  party which, for the present at  least, is past its usefulness and  is doing the country positive  harm.  In fighting the enemy at our  g-ates, we cannot afford to neglect the enemy in our midst.  These are harsh words to use,  but they are nevertheless true.  Those who do not strengthen-the  hands of the nation at-this time  but who are rather doing trie opposite by their extravagant ways,  must be classed as indicated  above.  "He who gathereth not, scattered." Therefore we shall  continue to-'call attention to the  evils of the administration as  long as we have any hope of getting them remedied. The only  way to stop political discussibh  in the province7at this timeris to  hold an "election as soon as-pos-  sible and :p*ut.irr.a new government. " '/'-' '."'';'.'   '" ~ " '  ;GJ-LLET:,TS  , GLEANS-DISINFECTS     I  Retribution.    .  . A provincial election has been  held "in'^Mani-toba and according  to a dispatch" received last Saturday the Conservative party, as  reconstructed, went down -to a  crushing defeat." Full returns  are not at hand, but strong indications are. that.out of 48.constituencies the Conservatives  carried only five.  '��������� This-result   of   the "election  a huge campaign fund.    In collusion with- the contractor, Mr.  Kelly, the contract and specifications were'changed so as to enable the contractor to draw about  $1,000,000 out of the provincial  treasury for work and material  aot furnished.���������_,    '   ~  .The   opposition, . suspecting  something in the way of graft  going, on,   tried   to   verify   its  suspicion,   but "met with, many  difficulties placed -in its way by  the government.   The.opposition  then asked that a'commission be  appointed; but this the government refused.    It then carried  its.charges to- the   lieutenant-  governor, who ordered ah investigation and  had a commission  appointed;'" with, the' result that  theAConservative -government,  seeing itself foredoomed of being  found guilty, resigned and a Liberal government was called to  the administration.    The result  of -the investigation  has  more  than justified the. charges'preferred; in fact the findings are  so grave that very likely crimin-  al  proceedings will  be started  against the former government.  t We should riot have blamed the  Conservatives so much for the  guilt of'the Conservative government in Manitoba if it had not  been because of-its attitude in  connection with the affair.    The  press of the party defended the  government after-every intelligent'man'was convinced that it  was engaged in-very.question  conduct of the Conservative  party and press reprehensible is  in the facts���������that they first defended a crime committed by  their representatives in power  and when defeated in this they  tried to besmirch the good name  of those who brought the investigation about. When the Conservative party failed in its efforts  to defend its representatives  against the charges made it reorganized so to speak, by denouncing the( men found guilty,  electing new Readers and adopt-  ing a platform endorsing every  political virtue and the prohibition of the-liquor traffic.  On. this denouncement and  platform it appealed to the voters  for their support; but the voters  not approving of its former attitude in the graft scandal and  very likely considering 'their  changed front in the nature of a  death bed repentance' and thus  not above suspicion, nearly wiped  it out of representation after a  long, period of abuse of power.

It found/fault  The  1  tion clear in this respect  arguments in"favor of the cessa-  ~ tion- of political warfare at this  time, have considerable force and  cannot be brushed aside lightly.  As far as Dominion politics are  concerned we are fully in accord  with such policy.    The term of  parliament has yet a long time  to run, there is no issue of mag-  nitude, compared to the prosecution of the war, on which there  is any difference of opinion. The  country is fully in accord with  the policy of the government on  this overshadowing   issue.     In  the matter of .graft in war contracts, it is certainly regrettable  that such should occur; but the  government, even though it may  . be reluctantly, is conducting an  investigation and we believe with  the intention of punishing wrong  doers.   And until the contrary  is evidentwe should refrain from  any controversy on this point at  this time.  But when it comes to provincial  politics the case is entirely different. : The term of this administration is nearly at an end.    A  'few months more and there must  1 r  be an election;   and  conditions  are such that an election is imperative.    The  welfare of the  province demands that it be not  postponed.    Over and over again  we have, together with the Liberal press and others, called attention to the gross mismanagement of the affairs of the province.    This is a time that calls  for retrenchment, and the conservation and development of all  pur resources, and the present  administration is pursuing a  policy entirely the opposite.   We  hold that there must be an en-  lation to every lover of free government. Everyone- who,-has  read the papers knows the cause  that-led up to this defeat; but in  order to show that any other result than a Liberal victory would  have been regrettable, allow us  to point out the following outstanding facts:  The late government of Manitoba, which had been Conservative for more than 15 years, was  engaged in erecting new parliament buildings.    In the letting  with the opposition, because," as  it claimed, it.,defamed the fair  name-of the province. But,  finally when-, it found that the  government was notable to hide  its. crookedness; but that' its  shame would be manifesto the  world, then, and not till then it  abandoned its defense.  But instead of humbly acknowledging itself in the wrong  and as proof of sincerity lending  its support to the investigation;  it went to work to prefer false  of the contracts, the government] charges against the newgovern-  made provision for the raising ofj ment.' And where we. find the  The Liberals Are Now  ,    .     J Squelched.  The attorney-general has at  last made his reply to'the charges  contained in, the now famous  pamphlet,' "Crisis in B. C"; We  do not care to take up the discussion of either the speech or  the "Crisis" at this' time;- as  there will be^'plenty of time to do  so before election. For.obvious  reasons it is not likely that there  will be an election untij the parliamentary term expires.  In the meantime, before Mr:  Bowser's defense is replied. to,  the Conservatives claim that now  the l^st word in regard "to the/  charges made has been, uttered,'  that'the Ministerial Union and  the Liberals  are   utterly dum-  founded.  .The attitude of the Conservatives in this matter at present is  somewhat, similar .to that of a:'  justice of the peace before whom'  a case of some petty crime wasj  being tried.    He listened carefully to the plea of the lawyer  for the defense and when that  learned   gentleman   closed and  the prosecuting attorney rose to  his feet, the justice waived him  down and told him it was no use  for him to say anything as he  had made up his mind, that the  accusation niade against the defendant had���������no foundation  in1  fact, but had been made out of  malice and therefore the case  was dismissed.

JNo manufacturer or wholesalehouse can  afford to let slip the opportunity . of increased  ' sales that public advertising brings.  The livestock branch' of the  Federal Department of Agriculture has issued an attractive  folder to be circulated among  // Canadian farmers in an endeavor to encourage them to raise  more sheep and' the booklet sets  forth the advantage of sheep  raising. The matter contained  in the pamphlet follows:  "There are, according to the  .1914 census, 2,058,045 sheep .in  Canada, shearing in the neighborhood of about 14,200,0C0  pounds of wool. ' This number  represents but a small measure  of what Canada's resources will  permit in sheep production.  "With its boundless areas of.  undeveloped land, why should  Canada be under the necessity  :>f importing'its supplies of wool  and mutton when sheep can undoubtedly be^raised with profit  lot only in'connection with mixed'  farm ing., but as wTell under conditions where-cultivation of the  land or the grazing of other animals is impossible?  The booklet gives the advantages of sheep raising as follows:  . 1. The sheep is a dual purpose  animal,-producing both wool and  mutton..       ���������   ' n  2: The initial expenditure is  small. Every farmer can weli  afford the investment of the  necessary capital in a few sheep.  3. Rapid monetary returns are  received, the- wool clip and the  lamb crop being saleable annual-  4. Expensive buildings.are by  no means necessary. ,A warm  lambing pen is required, but for  the. aged sheep, a sheltered shed  to protect them from the winter  winds is alone sufficient.  5. Weed destruction represents  another asset. Sheep will eat  and relish almost every class of  weed.  6. Sheep admittedly improve  soil fertility. Their manure is  rich and uniformly distributed.  7."Except at certain seasons  of the year, less time and atten-  tion need be bestowed upon the  care of sheep than in the case of  almost any other animal without  thereby endangering .successful  results.

Dr.  Shearer, head of the social service- committee of the Presbyterian Church, the day is not far  distant when prohibition throughout Canada will be an accomplished fact. Dr. Shearer has just  returned from attending the  World's Social Congress at San  Francisco, where, with Rev. Dr.  Albert Moore of Toronto, he ac-| possible to get  ted as delegate appointed by the  Dominion Government.  "The news of the  sweeping  victory in Alberta was received  with enthusiasm at the congress," said Dr. Shearer. "T  have been pleased to note the  strong sentiment for prohibition  in this province. I believe British Columbia will be the next to  go on record as prohibiting the  manuf acture.and sale of alcoholic  drinks. There is an internal revolution in men's minds with  respect to the drink problem.  The war came, bringing the  great example of Russia abolishing vodka with.a consequent loss  of $500,000,000 of revenue. Then  France followed with the prohibition of the use of absinthe.  "Prior to my visit to San Francisco-1 helped in the campaign  in Alberta for some three weeks.  It was astonishing to see the  change in sentiment on the .part  of old-time ranchers, labor leaders and others with respect to  the drink question. Business  men there, were solidly for prohibition.  "Quebec is making great progress toward complete prohibition. , This advancement along  prohibition,lines has been greatly furthered by the attitude of  Roman Catholic priests toward  the traffic.'' More and more they  are becoming opposed to the selling of liquor. As an indication  of the trend of sentiment, 879  municipalities out of a total of  1108 in Quebec already have prohibition. There is a law in Quebec, which makes the obtaining  of prohibition a simple process.  If a petition is signed by a certain number in favor of prohibition, it immediately becomes operative in that municipality. ��������� In  Montreal - there is a very- considerable reduction'1 in the number of licences each year. A law  provides for a certain number'of  reductions each year.  "In the United States 18 out of  48 states are already dry," (and a  majority of the counties of many  of the'other states have adopted  prohibition under local' option  laws. Ed.) "I look for the entire United-States to be dry within the next five years. As soon  as two-thirds of the states are  in favor of the measure it will be  a constitutional  amendment that will prohibit the  sale and   manufacture through  the nation."
