It is not ex pressing undue hopefulness to say that a turning point has been reached and that victory has taken her place on the banners of the allied armies. During the week the French and British brought the Germans to a standstill in their drives toward the channel and Paris. Dur ing the week the Italians halted the Austrians at the river Piave and pursued their retreating forces eastward of the river. During the week American troops chased the Huns from Bcllcau wood, cleared this strategic position from all Germans and captured prisoners and machine guns. There have been scenes of indescribable enthusiasm in the conn tries hardest pressed by the war. The people of France, England and Italy, beytL..by hardship for nearly four yars, have been quick to realize the import of the change that has been brought about. They have learned not to be over-optimistic; but there is an unmistakable sign that their hopefulness is . not unwarranted now. The advantages gained by the allies in the past week are not to be interpreted as a quick ending of the war. Should the Ger mans, with the tide against them, fight with a steadfastness and fortitude equal to that which the allies displayed during the long period that the tide seemed set inflexibly against them, there may yet be many months, perhaps years of war. It is not improbable, however, that German resistance will break down when the war makers at Berlin become convinced that the resources and men of the United States are going forward in constantly increasing numbers to the battlefields of Europe. Germany cannot help but realize that while her armies must of necessity grow steadily weaker and approach nearer the point of exhaustion, the armies she is fighting will grow stronger by the addition of fresh men fioin America. o ii iii iii jiii lit. THE FRENCH RESISTANCE j t i The principal changes in the situation within the last three weeks may be described in a sentence. The Germans have gained a little ground both to the west and to the south, but the French resistance is stiffening markedly as the reserves come into action. The fighting from the Oisc to the Alarne has been uninterrupted, and appears to have been as fierce as any in the Avar. Both the German And the French reports remark the desperate character of the French counter-attacks. They have been renewed many times at some points, and in several cases they have ended m favor of our French allies. The stubborn valor of the French troops on the battlefield is a reflection of the high-strung resolve of the whole nation. Xever in the course of her long and glorious history has "the real France' shown herself grander than in this hour of her trial. Our pride in our allies grows day by day as we read of the indomitable heroism with which they oppose the worst that Ludendorff, with all his advantages, can achieve. Incidents like the brilliant counter-attacks on Chaudin and Yicrzy and of the leconquest of Choisy Hill at the point of the bayonet should teach the Germans the temper they have aroused in the French and the quality of the troops they have to meet. For every step they advance they have to pay a heavy price. ami it becomes heavier as they move forward. The communiques :gree that the fighting between the Disc and the Aisne has been cry severe. The French admitted that they withdrew to the north border of the Carlepont Wood and to Fontenoy but violent efforts of the enemy in this quarter were checked and he was thrown back to the north of Monliii-sous-Touvcnt. The vagueness of the German report and its reference to the violence of the re sistance suggest that in this neighborhood the assailants were, on the whole, unsuccessful. HHIHHIiHHtMMHtttHtHHMMMMMMMMHf I t GERMAN THEFT J In a recent interview with a member of the American Chemi cal Society, several interesting points concerning Germany's real position in the chemical world were disclosed. American invention plus German rqsearch have been the keynotes to Germany's previously undisputed reputation along scientific lines. It is the American who has had the genius to give new ideas to the world, but failing to work them out, Ger many has recognized their significance and value and adopted them lor her own use. When we stop to reflect, her great achievements arc not to be credited primarily to her and her success can be at tributed in many cases to a borrowed idea worked up to a state of approximate perfection through systematic and methodical re search. Just a fcAv instances prove the truth of this contention; for example the submarine is an American invention developed in German-, the aeroplane and sister aircraft were invented here also: and the incandescent lamp was readily adopted by the Germans. And from England they have appropriated the coal tar color in dustry and optical glass industry. Germany has achieved her wonderful success in chemical in dustry' because she has fostered the idea of investigation, has spared no pains to get all the truth from things scientific and thus made research part of her national creed. By this method of stubborn perseverance she has enlarged her industries until she was considered the leader on things chemical. Although at the outbreak of the u'ar many of our manu facturing industries were greatly hampered in their work by the sudden shortage of imports from Germany, still this condition made us suddenly realize our opportunities lost through lack of thorough research and also the interdependence and necessary relationship between manufacturers and chemists. To cite just one instance, the dyestuff question, shows how readily we can meet such a situation. We arc now producing dyes .which arc not only equal to but in most cases better than the German ones. And wc have done this under abnormal condi tions and working against the tremendous German propaganda that "Made in Germany" label was essential to insure the value of an article. The public is fast gaining confidence in American products, however, and is now co-operating to create a perman ent confidence which wc hope will not be invaded again by a foreign propaganda. o RECORD MADE IN BUILDING THE WARD f THE CONTRAST ' J tMMMM Kaiser Wilhelm paid a visit to the western front not long ago to witness the efforts of his troops to batter down the allied defense. The correspondent, in his accbtujt of the emperor's trip, injected the statement that his majesty was "clear eyed and rud dy cheeked" and "looked the very picture of health."' Why shouldn't the emperor look well? It is quite within the range of possibilities he is not living on the fare now that he did before the war. But it is safe to say that he is not missing any meals and that the food served to him is the best that can be obtained in Germany today. It is also n Safe wager that his six sons have not been compelled to tighten up their be'ts by reason of losing flesh through hardships imposed by the war. Almost coincident with this report came rumors of unrest in Austria. During the last few days the situation has become more tense and now it is a question if Austria will be able to squelch the uprisings which have taken place as the result of remonstrances on the part of the laboring people against food shortages. Famine is stalking through the land. Flour can hardly be had. in many homes there have been no potatoes for months and other supplies arc correspondingly scarce. Little children are going to school' hungry. Faces are pinched and drawn. The civilians are woe fully undernourished. But the kaiser is clear eyed and ruddy thceked and looks the very picture of health. I KERENSKY'S VISIT tMMTTTTTMMM The German who enlisted in the L'niled States army "because he believed it afforded the quickest means of returning to Ger many," and who was arrested for falsifying his name, wouldn't hae gone far wrong in his calculations at that. a , Leaving lawyer at hoim and ending men to the senate whoi do things may become a habit if the war lasts long enough. Just how much good the Russian cause will derive from Kerensky's visit to the 'United States is problematical. Despite President Wilson's utterances that America should stand ready and does stand ready to help the Russian people along the road to freedom, there is an unmistakable feeling of resentment in this country' against the Russian leaders responsible for the failure of that country to fulfill its part in the war. Just now, beating Germany is more important to the allies than setting Russia on its feet or helping Russia re-establish an organized government. Speed in getting our own troops to Europe: speed in co-ordinating the allied war plans; speed in the systema- tization of America's war industries are each more essential to the welfare of the world than he rejuvenation of the Russian people. Xew dispatches quote the former provisionar premier of Russia as announcing in London that he was workjng in the in terests of Russian socialists. The socialists have not proved them selves popular in any country durinsr the course of the war. The debacle they made of their attempt at government in thei Slav nation did nothing to alter a growing belief in their inef fectiveness. While Kercnsky is undoubtedly one of the strongest men in Russia, and was for months hailed as its savior, he will find the accomplishment of real benefits for his country at the present time beset with hardship and obstructions. o We thought at one time that the Russians would have to enter the next marathon race alone. But we now find they will have company in the person of the Austrians who are not so slow when it comes to going over the top of the mountains to ward home. V1 MM. nT 1 f i I TMs vImv shows the LT.

This is a new world's shipbuilding record. f THE ITALIAN SUCCESS J HHIIIIHIIIHHHHHtHilHHHHHHHHIIHtllll The mountain victory obtained by the Italians is presumably part of General Diaz' plan for anticipating and frustrating a new Austrian push from the Trcntino salient. The Tonale Pass, on the west of the salient, is the last pass but one on the left of the long Italian line. The front crosses it at roughly the same point as the pre-war frontier: and the fighting lias occurred hi' the lofty mountains just south of it, which arc really a northwesterly extension of. the great mass of Monte Adamello. The higher levels are for the most part covered by large glaciers, and fighting upon them must be of an extremely special ized type; the military possession of these high levels is neverthe less of great importance for the possession of the passes. An offensive from the Western, Trcntino towards Brescia, arid ultimately towards Milan, has always. bcen,,onc of the possibilities before the Austrian command; and. this year itIias.Jjccnasro'od deal talked about. If anything is to come of ft, it will probably come before very long. The Italian exploit shows that the local conditions arc becoming practicable. o One reason why the senate should pass the hill authorizing the deportation of alien anarchists is that aljcn anarchists should never have been permitted to come in. o- - Speaking of "trial" marriages, a Miss Sue has wedded a law yer named Dodger! o Being the "boot of Europe," it was not unexpected that Italy should kick the cnemv. .

Osborn are beginning to occasion general comment as well as keen interest for its remarkable demonstrations lately. This beauti ful little beast without any training whatever, seems to be gifted with the initiative of being a first-class and persistent beggar. For instance lit has got .the habit of walking leis urely into the kitchen and winning for sugar. When given a lump it wants another, and usually it takes about three doses to satiate its greed. It must be led out to the barn, before it will stop begging. Just the moment the barn door is swung open it gets to moving and makes straight for the house. How it acquired this habit is not known, but it is said that it bad been fed j on sugar before it was purchased by Dr. Osborn, and the taste for the sweet has never been forgotten.

SLAV SLACKERS TO JOIN ARMY OfTJULY 8 (From Sunday's Daily) Under Sheriff J. H. Rouinson yes terday received notice .from the State military authorities that the six Rus sians who have been in jail here for the past few weeks because they re fused to fill out their questionnan'cs, would be started for one of the can tonments on Saturday next, July 6ih. The Russians arc much excited about their enforced military service, and all state that they will go to camp but that they will not have anything to do with drilling or fighting. It will be remembered that tbese six prisoners are all that arc left of the big bunch of Slavs who spent ten months in jail here for failure to rcg ister. When the questionnarics .t sent out, the Russians with c -ception of the six now held, s.r . theirs, and were released from jail op June 8th.
