WE have dealt at length elsewhere with the general military situation. Here we will only repeat that the position on the whole is favourable. Though there is little activity for the moment on the Western front, we have the local mastery, and if the Germans attack us, as we sincerely hope they may, though we shall be very much surprised if they do, they will get all they can possibly want in the way of repulse and counter-attack. Meanwhile King Mud rules the trenches and forbids any real activity on either side. In artillery firo we now unquestionably dominate our enemy.
