hardships Can only have grown more unbearable.
. Weathet conditions on the Western front have
leert such as to preclude infantry operations on
either side. Reports from the. American sector
laid the United States soldiers had spent four days
shoveling snow .to keep communication with the

i In Palestine, reports received Sunday morning
indicated there has been a resumption of offensive
. on the part of the British which is sweeping the
Turks steadily backward. The advance was made
early in the . week and was" in the direction of

increase in the Teutonic ' submarine ' offensive at
the same time with tbeif increased offenses on' the
Western and Italian front, a speeding up bf effort
on the part bf the Germans undersea as well as on
land, which brought about heavier losses to Allied
shipping, especially the commerce of Britain." It
is equally significant that there has- come an abate
ment in the submarining campaign at the same
time the land offensives lulled. Decided falling off
in ' British ship losses ' was shown in the report

-Four great nations, Great Britain and Germany
rivals, -Japan and the United States rivals, are
greater and, stronger than ever before. Peace cbuld
not bring a determination of any issue between
them. If this war found its essential cause in the
rivalry of Germany and Great Britain, peace would
not only find that cause unremoved but would find
the rivals stronger than ever and hating each other
a great 'deal more than ever. ' .' '.
Any peace which could be . made now would
present the world with the elements of a greater
war to be undertaken as soon as exasperation, and
opportunity were more emphasized than the weari
ness caused by this war. ' 1 '. !-?

What appeared to be a mere routine war de
partment order concerning the imposition and
execution of the death penalty upon; soldiers of
tt army reached the commander of the Hawai
ian Department Saturday, but behind it is the sha
dow of a tragedy, the second of its kind in seventy
years, which was enacted at Fort San Antonio
when thirteen soldiers of the Twenty-fourth In
fantry stood upon a scaffold and gay e up their
lives as an outgrowth of the riot and mutiny at
August. The carrying out of the
sentence of the court-martial, secretly arid in ac
cordance with the then existing army regulations,
caused a catching of the breath of officials in
Washington. Now, no such order may be carried
out, even during these trying times of war, until
the whole proceedings have been reviewed by-the
adjutant general of the army, and that means,
also, the President of the United States. When
their approval is secured over their official signa
tures, then, and then only, may men be hanged or
thot for extreme violations of Uncle Sam'a war
regulations. . :

suggestion that George R. Carter be named the
territorial representative of the federal food ad
ministration, even in the face of the fact that Mr.
Child has just been endorsed by the territorial
food commission and is now on his way" to con
Milt Mr. Hoover. Mr. Child is the wrong man
tempermentally for this position and there never
