(Continued from isr page) the Central Powers have already lost the initiative and are find i"R a difficulty in refilling their ranks, Russia has not yet reach ed the zenith of her power, \yjiicli will only be approached next year, when we shall have the largest and best army lince the beginning of the war'. "liven this year we have bean obliged to conduct our offensive with an inferiority in material and heavy guns. Next year we shall have material on an equal. ny with the enemy and a su periority in human -resources which should steadily increase as long as the war endure?. The moral of the Russian paople has been slowly rising for two years and it is my absolute personal conviction that if it were possible to take a vote of the entire population 99 out of a 100 Rus sians today would demand the continuati n of ihe war to a definite and final victory, regard less of the pi ice. "Our new levies which come in each year equal our best troops, and, as I believe, they are far superior to anything which the cntmy can stiil find to send against us for next year's campaign. "The recent temporary reverses of Rumania must not be considered as having the slightest significance, and the enemy's trifling advance in the Dobrudja, though a regrettable incident, will have no bearing on the greater issues of the war. It would have been serious had the Germans been able to pierce the Carpathians and enter Ru mania, but I believe that this last attempt by them to regain somewhere their irritative is doomed to perish, as all others attempted .during this summer's campaign have done. "Rumania is now feeling for the first time the pressure of the war and the bitterness of defeat, but Rumania must realize that her defeats are but incidents in the greater campaign, for be hind her stands Great Russsia, who will see to it that her brave little Ally, who has come into the war for just cause, does not ultimately suffer for her daring in expousing the cause for which we are all fighting. "I can speak with authority when I state that, from theTzar down to the common soldier, the united sentiment of Russia is that Rumania should be protected, helped, and suppert ed in every possible way. The Rumanians must feel faith in the great heart of Russia and the Russian people, and must j know also that in the effort we make to save them tins senti ment is a dominant factor, and that it is not merely a question of our own self interest to pro tect our left Hank. "I am not speaking for effect but from my deepest convictions i when 1 state m\ own absolute optimism as to the future opera tions on all fronts. 1 believe that the whole Alliance can en ter the winter looking back on ; the decisive summer of the war, I while our unfortunate enemies must see before them the deep eaing cloud of utter ruin, and it is difficult to see howjeven their I clever publicists can much long ;er conceal this frcm themselves I or irom their deluded people.' —The Times Imperial West Indian Assurance.

"The War Is Won"
RUSSIA'S VAST NFW RESOURCES.
(From Stanley Washburn.)
"The Times" Special Correspondent with the Russian Forces.
I le.idquarters, S. W. Front, Nov. 8.
GENERAL Bru-.iloff authori-
zes me to quote hiraj as
follows on the situation:
"The war is won to-day,
though it's merely speculation to
estimate how much longer will
be required before the enemy
arc convinced that the cause for
tlie sake of which tliev drenched
Europe with blood is irretrievab-
ly lost. Personally, never since
the beginning have I btlieved
that the enemy had a chance of
winning, but while they were
able to continue successful offen-
sives it was difficult for them
selves to realize that they were
not approaching n successful
peace.
"This summer's operations
mark a definite period in their
defeat, and that period dates
from the time when the Allies,
co-ordinating their programmes,
seiied from the enemy his capa-
city to continue offensives and
to dictate his strategy to us.
From tht beginning of the op-
erations tiiis summer on the
Russian south western front the
enemy has lost control of the
situation, and, in spite of his
most supeihuman efforts to re
gain the initiative, he has utter-
ly failed to do so. Again and
again on the south western front
the enemy's design to block our
plans and throw us back on the
defensive has been ruined by the
valour and fortitude of our
heroic tioops.
"Simultaneously our brave
Allies on the West were begin-
ning their summer's campaign,
which by now must have de-
monstrated to the German Hi^h
Comrnand.that, with all their
material, they can construct no
defences which the British and
Trench cannot surely, if slowly,
destroy and force them back.
Italy has had succesies with tht
Western Allies and Russia, and
surely no intelligent German
can expect victory. It is simply
a question of how long they are
willing to continue a war of
which the end is absolutely fore
shadowed to day.
"I he entrance of Roumania
into the war has changed the
situation, for it has made the
enemy at a time when he was
hardest pressed for troops to ex
tend his line by hundreds of ad-
ditional milts. Though it is
true that we are also assisting
our little Ally by extending our
flanks, it is likewise true that
we can afford men, while the
enemy could hardly afford his
losses even before Roumania en
ttred the war.

still hopeful for their cause, let
them realize that to-day, when

Zhe tribune
Tuesday, Dec. uth, 1916
So the energetic and versa
tile Lloyd George has be-
come Prime Minister and
First Lord of the Treasury !
Mr. Asquith piloted the ship
of state through many poli-
tical storms, with consunmte
skill, but has somehow or
other, it is evident, lost the
confidence qf the British
Public, and has therefore had
to ask to be relieved of his
responsibilities.
Putting all party consider-
ations aside, we consider that
Mr. Asquilh's administration
has been marked by brilliant
statesmanship, and we feel
that the British Empire, and
modern civilization will find
when the full history of the
events which led to the pres-
ent mighty upheaval is writ-
ten, that they owe much to
the sagacity of the late Pre-
mier and his sagacious col-
league, Sir Edward Grey.
But these are trying times,
and whatever the cause, our
trusted leaders have had to
fivs place to others, and no
doubt they will be glad to be
relieved of the heavy respon-
sibilities they have had to
bear.
Mr. Lloyd George's career
has been meteoric, but there
can be no doubt that he is
the right man, in the right
place. Who would ever have
dreamt that HE, above all
people, should be the leader
of a council which includes
Lord Curzon, Lord Milner
and Bonar Law. But so it is,
and that "the little Welsh at-
torney" has the confidence of
the nation, is fully proved by
the fact that his former bitter
antagonists have' consented
to accept office under hi.n.
Quite a crowd presented
themselves at the Command-
ant's office yesterday, and
tookjthe Oath of Alleigiance.
All of them seemed "'free, able
and willing," to do their bit,
and we understand that there
are more to follow. The
Commandant was at his p< isl
the whole time, notwith-
standing his broken arm. We
admire him for his devotion
to duty, and trust that he
may suffer no ill effects from
the strain thus imposed upon
him.

THE WINTER
CAMPAIGN-
AN APPEAL BY THE QUEEN
FOR "COMFORTS."
Wc have received the follow
ing letter which the Queen has
written, appealing for continued
support for her Needlework
Gudd. which has done so much
for the coinfoit of soldiers and
sailors:
Buckingham Palace, Oct. 24
On the threshold of the third
winter since the beginning of
the war, 1 appi al to all those
who have generously responded
to my requests for work during
the pasi two years not to relax
their efforts in providing com
forts for our soldiers and sailors.
The applications from regi
merits and hospitals at home
and abroad increase instead of
diminish, anil an almost unlim-
ited number of things are need-
ed if the Queen Mary's Needle-
work Guild is to meet all the
demands made upon it.

ny with the enemy and a su
periority in human -resources
which should steadily increase
as long as the war endure?. The
moral of the Russian paople has
been slowly rising for two years
and it is my absolute personal
conviction that if it were possi-
ble to take a vote of the entire
population 99 out of a 100 Rus
sians today would demand the
continuati n of ihe war to a
definite and final victory, regard
less of the pi ice.
"Our new levies which come
in each year equal our best
troops, and, as I believe, they
are far superior to anything
which the cntmy can stiil find
to send against us for next year's
campaign.
"The recent temporary re-
verses of Rumania must not be
considered as having the
slightest significance, and the
enemy's trifling advance in the
Dobrudja, though a regrettable
incident, will have no bearing
on the greater issues of the war.
It would have been serious had
the Germans been able to pierce
the Carpathians and enter Ru
mania, but I believe that this
last attempt by them to regain
somewhere their irritative is
doomed to perish, as all others
attempted .during this summer's
campaign have done.
"Rumania is now feeling for
the first time the pressure of the
war and the bitterness of defeat,
but Rumania must realize that
her defeats are but incidents in
the greater campaign, for be
hind her stands Great Russsia,
who will see to it that her brave
little Ally, who has come into
the war for just cause, does not
ultimately suffer for her daring
in expousing the cause for
which we are all fighting.
"I can speak with authority
when I state that, from theTzar
down to the common soldier,
the united sentiment of Russia
is that Rumania should be
protected, helped, and suppert
ed in every possible way. The
Rumanians must feel faith in
the great heart of Russia and
the Russian people, and must
j know also that in the effort we
make to save them tins senti
ment is a dominant factor, and
' that it is not merely a question
of our own self interest to pro
tect our left Hank.
"I am not speaking for effect
but from my deepest convictions
i when 1 state m\ own absolute
optimism as to the future opera
tions on all fronts. 1 believe
that the whole Alliance can en
ter the winter looking back on
; the decisive summer of the war,
I while our unfortunate enemies
' must see before them the deep
