Wcmyss is an Aristocrat
But Is Also  Said  to  Be  a Fighter
and Knows His Men
Speaking of thc new first lord of
thc admiralty, Sir Kossljn Wcmyss,
il may bc well to make it easy foi
him at thc outset hy explaining lhat
Ids last name is pronounced
"Wccnis." Wcmyss becomes much
less formidable v.lirn that fact i>
known. He has a distinct reputation
as it fighter of the first order
throughout the British navy. He
was born in 1864,
He took a foremost part in the
Jutland battle and acquitted himself
admirably, lie comes of one of lhc
old conservative families of England,
being a son of ihc late J. H. Ersklne
Wcmyss, of Wcmyss Castle, Fife. He
entered lhe navy in 1877, was made
a lieutenant in 1877, a commander in
18'.'8 and captain in 1901, He was
commander of the Royal Naval Barracks in 1911 and 191_, rear admiral
of the second battle squadron in
1912 and 1913 and was an extra
equerry to the king.
Vice-Admiral Wcmyss represents
the old aristocratic clement. As
second sea lord he was responsible
chiefly for thc appoinlmcnt of the
personnel of the navy, an hi was
undoubtedly taken as first assistant
to Admiral Jellicoe because of his
knowledge of men antl his reputation
as a fighter.
World Must Fight   the   Barbarians
for the Sake of Peace
An applicant for exemption from
military service, according to an esteemed contemporary, based his
claim ou the belief that only barbarians and Huns should light. The
belief is shared, no doubt, hy a good
many others, and il would be a pleasant relief for peacefully disposed
people if all ihe fighting could bc
restricted to the Huns and lhe barbarians, lint if ihc Huns and the
barbarians refuse to restrict thc
fighting lo themselves, what then?
Is the rest of the world to become
barbarian rather than lighl the b.tr-
barlans? Many of Ihose, pei haps
lhc great mass of theni, who are
fighting ihc Hun and the barbarian
loday have no love for fighting for

How Modern Wars are Won
Enemy Defeated Through People
Becoming Demoralized
General von Llldendorfl, who is
recognized as the brains of thc German government and lhc most influential director oi its activities, enunciated an important truth in his remark the other da; on the special
arid distinctive nature- of modern war.
He said that it is a war not of armies
but of peoples; that there are no
decisive battles in the old sense, when
thc issue of a campaign might be determined by the result of a single
engagement, as when Napoleon
crushed ibe Prussians at Jena, or as
when he was himself crushed by the
coalition at Waterloo. Nowadays the
effect of battles is indirect, and an
enemy people- is defeated through becoming demoralized as lhc consequence of an unsuccessful and disastrous conflict. From this point of
view he insisted that the revolution
in Kussia must not bc regarded as a
mere piece of luck for the ' central
powers, but as the natural outcome
of military operations from which the
Russian people had seriously suffered.���Philadalphia  Enquirer,

A New Gas at the Front
Australian Soldier Thought He Had
Discovered a New Device of
the Germans
The average Australian had never
seen snow before he came to this
part of thc globe, and hail no idea
how it fell or whal it was like. I
am going to relate an incident which
happened about thc time the Germans
wcrc pestering us with new gases.
You may not believe thc following,
but it's a fact:
It was at dead of night; everything was still, wonderfully still excepting for the repori of some gun
in thc distance. The landscape was
illuminated by the moon peeping
from a gap in the cloudy sky. It
was bitterly cold, and the boys were
j rubbing Iheir numb hands sniffling
through their frozen noses.
j "Cast gasl" shouted Private New-
hand.   "Fritz is puttin'   over   some
I new gas���look at it."
We nil slipped on our helmets, and
after the excitement was over we
discovered it wasn't gas at all���it had
only just started to snow.
i Relieve it or not, it actually happened.���Correspondent from the

the old places that mark the historic
record of ihc first desperate    Canadian engagement to    Passchendaclc,
nearly  three  years  of billet-  fighting

Passchendaclc riclgc    swept    beyond
thc old fighting ground of April 22,
1915, and won back from the enemy
the only bit of Canadian ground he
had succeeded In holding. So did the
corps rejoice, particularly those  men
war-worn and old in    service,    who
studied old maps and went forward to
where some familiar spot marked   a

Keep Down Price of Potatoes
Food Controller Warns Growers and
Dealers That Consumers Will
Be Protected
Higher prices for potatoes than
those now prevailing will not be permitted. The food controller is sending a letter to this effect to all wholesale handlers of potatoes stating that
any attempt to secure higher prices
will bc dealt wilh promptly. If retail dealers should attempt to charge
an unreasonable profit on potatoes
thc food conl roller is prepared to fix
the margin of profit and, if necessary,
lo fix maximum prices. In a statement, Mr. Hanna said:
"A recent survey of the situation
by lhis office indicates thai there is
slill a large supply of potatoes in thc
bauds oi growers and dealers to
meet a continuous and heavy demand
until the 1918 crop will bc available.
All handlers of potatoes should understand the situation clearly and realize that a special effort to keep lhc
public plentifully supplied at reasonable prices is necessary, iu order that i
uo part of the large crop of the past i
season bc wasted, Nothing can bc |
gained by withholding supplies trom |
the market, because, higher prices j
will noi be permitted and any attempt r
in that direction will bc dealt with I
at once by thc food controller. The j
trend of the market is now towards |
lower prices, notwithstanding thc I
recent severe weather which has I
made ilu- movement of potatoes dif-l
lieult. When spring opens it is anticipated that much of the surplus will
conn: on  the market,"
Refused a Crown
The most famous refusal of distinction last century wis undoubtedly the action of the then Lord
Stanley, alterwards Lord Derby,
who in 1802, refused the crown of
Greece, a decision which many Eng-
lishmcn have since, regretted, but
never so much as during thc last
three years. If there had been a
Stanley at Athens in 1915 thc history
of the Balkans would have been dif-
  ,   more in
favor of this country. Disraeli described the offer as "a dazzling adventure for the house of Stanley,"
adding "the Stanleys wcrc not an

An   Unpublished   Manuscript   That
Would Startle the World
Can It be possible that Great
Britain has in her hands a weapon
more powerful than sword, rifle,
grenade, or cannon which .she refuses to use against lhc enemy who
would chain all mankind as slaves to
lhc kaiser's military machine? There
is reason lo believe that Ibis question can be truthfully answered in
lhe affirmative) and the fact reopens
Certain very interesting pages of history hearing on lhc present war, says
the, Rochester Union and Advocate.
Tlie weapon in question consists of
thc manuscript of ihe third volume
of the memories of Bismarck, lhc
iron chancellor, to whom, more llian
lo any oilier man who ever lived, is
due ibe unification of Germany and
|the growth of her power uniil she
.tboughl it strong enough to master
the whole world. Everyone knows
lhal after Bismarck had for lif.- devoted his great talents to the services of Germany and the kaiser's
family, lhe hitler turned him out of
office in his old age, with every circumstance of Ignominy, and even
made threats of shameful punishment
in ease the ex-chancellor should publish facts iu his possession thai
would SCt his case in Ihe true light
before the world.
Bismarck was a master of ihe pen,
had a store of wit and humor, was
fami'iar wilh several languages, possessed a marvellous memory, and
had an unsurpassed knowledge of
public affairs in the world during
that important era in which he was
the most masterful statesman in Europe. His published nienioris, thc
record of his sayings and ; ctions during thc Franco-German war by
lUisch, to say nothing of what general history tells of his achievements,
suggest what an acl of lunacy it was
for thc kaiser to provoke the enmity
of such a,man. His dismissal hy thc
kaiser exasperated the veteran statesman to the utmost, and hc determined to take vengeance -by completing
his autobiography in which his relations with Kaiser Wilhelm II, arc
fully set forth.
Il is said to detail thc treatment of
his parents   hy tlu- kaiser    with    a
frankness that    shows the son in   a
most odious light. But more important than this liulilial conduct toward
both his parents are. thc   revelations
of Iiis intrigues againsl Austria   and
the house of Hapsburg,   which   arc
i said to he oi such a charctcr lhat if
I they  were  made    pub'ic,   thc kaiser
would   never   dan-    lo visit Vienna
'again.    It was   Bismarck's Intention i
lo publish the, volume in his lifetime,'
But knowledge of its contents reached the kaiser, and he threatened the
author wilh such dire    penalties    in
case of its publication (luring his life
lhat Bismarck, fearing its seizure by_
thc emperor, secretly sent thc manuscript to London, and it is now   in
the Bank of England.
When Bismarck died the kaiser
warned his sons, Herbert and William, not to publish the book, and
they were prudent enough to obey
the order. He also tried to get possession of the manuscript, but failed.
The bearing of the case on the
present war consists in thc fact that,
as thc kaiser is thc head and front of
the German offensive against the rest
of mankind, and as the Bismarck
book would beyond doubt do him irreparable damage all over lhc world,
including his own country and Austria, there arc many who urge that
thc English government should seize
the manuscript as enemy property
i and publish it as a war measure. Thc
i only reason why il has not been sciz-
i cd and published is said to be that
| such action would injure thc reputation for security now enjoyed by the

Absolute Control of Seas Since Commencement of Hostilities
And has Made Possible the Success nf tbe Allies
Recent cvenls connected with the
British navy give special point to a
booklet just issued iu England entitled "The Achievement oi' the British Navy and World-War," written
by John Leyland. It consists of just
under 100 pages, hut with ils attractive account of work, its interesting
illustrations and two dear ma| s, it
deserves to bc read and circulated
far and wide, especially because
there are many in Camilla and elsewhere who arc only loo apt to wonder what the British navy has really
been doing during . lln- lasl Ihree
When King George returned from
a visil paid to tbe grand fleet list

000 men, with guns, horses, mules,
stores, ammunition, hospitals, tent
equipment and all thc requirements
for field service had to join the
main army in France. Failure would
have meant disaster, but lhc whole
of the transport work was managed
without the loss of a man or a horse,
and was a wonderful success.--Toronlo Glob'-,
true thai the work ol tne navy
never been proper'y appreciated by
many of Ihosc who have- benefited
by it most. It docs its work unobserved, and the records of its heroic
services pass unobserved by the. multitude. On the first day of hostili.ics
the Britisii navy laid hold upon the
road that would lead lo victory, and
the moment when llie first fleet, as
it was then called, slipped away
from its anchorage, al Portland on
the morning of Wednesday, July
29, 1914, will yet bc regarded as one
of thc decisive moments, of history.
At that, time thc public, knew litttlc
or nothing of what was in progress,
and even now imagination fails to
grasp the magnitude of what was
achieved. Popular confidence seemed for a time to be disturbed by a
record of successive alarming Incidents, and people wen- asking:
"What is the Heel doing?" hut the
hidden truth was not comprehended,
The initiative had been seized, and
all real initiative was thenceforward
denied lo the enemy. "Time is ev-1
erythmr:;," said Nelson; "five minutes
I makes a difference between a victory and a defeat."
Ot all lhc theatres of the. war the
North Sea is the most important, for
it is closed against the Germans, and
this great blockade constitutes the
main reason for her protest. She
rebels againsl Hriiish sea supremacy
and therefore claims "freedom of the
seas," though her action is an endeavor to qualify to be thc tyrant of
them. The magnificence of the work
of thc Britisii patrols must be recognized, and while the Germans may
enjoy a certain opportunity of undertaking raid operations without much
difficulty, no real or permanent advantage is gained by such proceedings. Day and night, in every weather, our patrols arc at work, and the
records of heroism at sea in these
services havc never been surpassed.
Mercantile marine trawlers, destroyer flotillas, patrol boats, and air services havc combined lo exercise an
activity which has never been relaxed, and they havc been engaged in
countless combats. It is sometimes
wondered why thc grand fleet docs
not take aggressive action, but naval
history    shows   that to attack coast

Chief Causes of Impurity in Milk
Prof. Breed of Geneva (N.Y.) Experiment Station says the old idea
that dust and dirt arc big factors in

are, hc says, unsanitary milk cans
and equipment, improperly -cleaned
milking machines, garget in .he cow
and failure to cool thc milk to proper temperature,

Militarism Coming for    All    of
Unless Germany Is  Beaten
Ex-President Taft stated thc ease
exactly when he told a Boston aud'-
encc that "it the United States did
not win the war the only alterna i
would bc to make militarism the
dominating policy of the government." Not only must Germany be
prevented from winning lhe war, but
wc must win ii. A drawn battle, a
return to thc status quo ante, will an
surely impose militarism on tii.
United States as will a German victory. Every so-called pacifist who is
working to bring about an inconclusive peace is working tooth and nail
for militarism iu this country, militarism of which this generation and
the next would see no end.
Not even the pacifists deny any
longer the sinister ambitions of Germany. There is uo longer any debate
about what she would do if she could.
Suppose all lhc nations were to do a*
Germany would like to have them,
call lhe fight off on the basis of "no
annexations and no indemnities.''
Germany's ambitions wou'd remain
the same; she would merely havc
been thwarted in this first attempt to
realize ihem, thwarted by certain
miscalculations she made and ��Inch
she would not make again. Every
nation in the world would begin immediately to prepare for Germany's
next attempt to realize them, this
country above all. Wc should havo
to install militarism On a German
scale, and keep ii standing through

might allow us, ready to defend ourselves at any instant.

war taxation in time oi peace bc enjoyed? 'lhis country docs not want
to become militarist It wants to lay

Who an- thev who would thwart this

Mr, Ncilds, of Victoria, and Solicitor Frank Higgiiis of Victoria.

Overseas Soldiers vote has l��en received, and as expected, it has gone
overwhelmingly in favor of Union

Liberal members in the whole of
the west. Over one hundred Liberal candidates have lost their deposits There were 101,250 votes
cast. Of tbese the Government
candidates received 88,175. all others, 6,744, while 6,33* were rejected, showing that 92.80 percent
of lhe soldiers voted for Union go

The Back Yard      \
The back yard garden next
summer will be 110 joke. When
potatoes, onions, cabbage, etc. are
selling al prices five times above
the ordinary figures, it is time for
the consumer to do something for
himself. Conditions like those
prevailing at present teem bound
to continue while the war lasts.
Many of our food products are
being deposited at the bottom of
the ocean by the liermau submnr
Ines, It is time for the man who
his money enough to buy a hoe
and energy enough to weild it to
get busy iu the hack yard. It is
commonly complained that after
one has paid the expenses of a
back yard garden there is 11b profit
left. That may be true when tlie
householder hires all the heavy
work done. Also he would better
ask a little advice of experienced
gardeners at the various stages of
the game. But the earth is fruitful. If properly encouraged with
good seed and patient care, quite
a dent can be made in the high
cost of living

Would You Miss Your
Telephone ?
Do you fully realize what continuous telephone service is ? Despite
the weather, accidents, or anything that may cause interruptions, it is
seldom your telephone fails to respond to your need, That your service is continuous is the result of much work behind the scenes, effort
that you never see and seldom hear about. Nothing can take the place
ol the telephone, and it is so much a part of everyday life that it would
never do not to have it ready at all times. Think what it would mean
if there were no telephone service !

With beef at 30c a pound you will pay fl 72 for a 5 lb 11

Thus if you cook the meat in an electric oven you will
sitve for yourself 37 cents add for your countty 1 ponnd 3 oz

On January the 8th tlio Food

inary duty was not price-fixing J>F
foods for consumption in Canada
but that of taking every possible
means to relieve llio desperate
food shortage in Europe, tJp'��tt
the success of his effort in Canada
and a similar effoit in the United
States the result of the war itself

must be done irrespective of what
it costs us, and it must be il.un..
even if some other duties have to
be disregarded. From the first I
have been preaching 'save wheat,
save beef, save bacon' and I am
still preaching that doctrine, Use
substitutes even although they
cost mure. We owe it to the men
at the front and the people across
tho water."
By saving 20 per cent of tin*
normal consumption of wheat,
Canada and the United States
were expected to send 220.000.00f)
bushels of wheat to Europe out of
the 1917 coop. This would nor.
save Europa from hunger, but it
would save the people from star-
vation, said Mr. Hanna,

You ask what the food control

conclusion. "I have told you some
of the things he has done. Now
I think it is a fair question for
each one of you to ask yourself.
' What have I done, what am I
doing to alleviate the desperate
situation confronting us in Europe.' "

"Tli.re was Duly. They were
friends, in a way, and I wouldn't
trust llic fellow. Slill, I don't know I
how fur Iiis influence went, and imagine Fred hadn't much to do with
him for some months,   Besides, Daly
wasn't at the Crossing when "
Hulton said nothing fcr the    next i
few    moments    and    Foster   mused. [
Fred Hulton had been very likeable,
in spite of certain ���.weaknesses,   and
lie  thought  it  cost  his  father  some-,
thing to talk about him as he did.
Hulton,    however,    seldom    showed i
what  he  felt  and  would, no    doubl,
take thc line lie thought best with a j
stoic disregard ol the P.aih it niighl I
cause.    He rested his elbow on    the [
table, as  if  he  were  tired, .and . sal.
very quiet with his chin on his hand,
until he asked Featherstone;
"Why did you lend Fred the'money
lie sent thc uirl?"
"For one tbinir, because he was unfriend," Featherstone answered with
a flush. "Then I knew into what
straits lhc need of money can drive
a young man. J got into trouble myself some years ago."
Hullon nodded. "Thank yon. You
helped him out. You have no ground
to think hc was embarrassed by the
need of money on thc nigl.t he d.ed?"
"1 fed sure he. was not. He kept
mc some lime talking cheerfully
about a hunting trip we meant to
"Well," said Hullon quietly, "you're going to be surprised now. 1 did
not give my evidence as frankly as
yon claim to have done, bill kept
something back. Mr. Pcrcival was
away for two or three weeks, and
Fred was thc only person beside myself who knew thc combination lhat
opens thc big safe. On the morning
afler wc found him'dead I examined
the safe. A number of bonds and a
wad of small bills for wages had
gone. It was signlficcnt that 1'eiVi-
val was due back next day."
Featherstone started, but his face
was hot wilh scornful anger.
"That had no significance I I'd as
soon suspect ni; ,elf or my partner of
Stealing bonds, but the safe's being
open throws a new light upon the
Ihing. Somebody youjiaum't thought
of yel knew or found out tlie combination."
''Thin, in fac_ of whal you havc
heard, you do not believe my son
fired the shot that look his lifer"
"No, sir," said Featherstone, with
"[lliet earnestness. "1 never thought
It, -.Mil 'i is impossible to believe it
"My partner's opinion's mine,"
Foster broke in.
Hulton looked from one to lhe other and a curious steely glitter came.
Into his eyes. It hinted at a pitiless,
Unchangeable purpose, and bracing
himself with an effort he clenched
his fist.
"Nor do I believe it! If necessary
I'll let my business and factory go
and spend Ihc last dollar I've got lo
find the man who killed my boy."
Next moment he sank limply back
in his chair, as if lhc strain and vindictive emotion, reacting on his physical weakness', had overcome him,
and there was silence until he recovered. Foster felt it something of
a relief that the man's icy sclf-con-
tr.il had broken down.
"Very well," Hulton resumed in a
shaky voice. "I brought you here because you knew my son and 1 wanted your support. Hlcn I meant to
convince Percival, whose help 1 may
need to clear the boy's good name.
We'll let that go and ivy to bc praclieai."
"Were the bonds negotiable?" Foster asked, "Could llicy bc easily
Percival, who was about fitly years
of age and had a reserved manner,
answered; "Some were bearer bonds,
and if the thief acted quickly, would
be as good as cash Mosl, how-
tver, wcrc registered stock, and it is
probable that be would be afraid 10
���sell them in Canada or America."
"What about Europe?"
"That is where thc danger lies. If
h��- had clever confederates, a large
part of lhe value of the bonds could
be borrowed from a bank, fir they
might be sold io unsuspecting buyers
on a French or German bourse."
"lint this would depend on lhe publicity you gave their theft."
"Exactly, Percival agreed with
some dryness. "I have been trying
to   make   .Mr.   Hullon   recognize   it."
lluli.in's tense look softened and
he smiled. "I'crcival seems to have
forgotten that I am a business man.
At the inquiry 1 shirked my duty
by keeping something back, ami now
he expects 'lie to brand my son's
good name. The money must go. hi
a sense, il is a trifling loss."
"Al   last,  you  put   uu-  wis.,"
I'crcival.    "i'.ul   I.,  prove  that

"That's so.     ll  must  be  dom	
r-.lull ami tail by the best New York
private investigation man that I can
hire. The job's loo delicate for the
regular police."
Featherstone, v. lio had been silting
thoughtfully silent, looked up. "Perhaps it's lucky the wage clerk went
inlo the treasurer's oflicc after I left,
though I spoke to ihc watchman,
Jordan, as  I  went out."
"No," said Percival sharply, "It
wasn't Jordan's week on night guard."
There was silence for a moment,
and then Hulton asked: "Where did
you meet the man you thought was
Jordan?    Did  he  answer  you?"
"He was going along the ground
floor passage in front of mc, and the
only lighl was in ibe pay ollice at
lhc end. He slood in the doorway
as 1 passed and 1 said, 'It's a cold
night, Tom,' I'd gone a few yards
when be answered, 'll will be colder
"Then as you passed the door he
must have seen your face, though
you could noi sec his," said Hulton,
who tinned lo Percival. "Clark was

Tom.     Where  was
Featherstone left?"
"In the lathe room at Ihc other
end of llur building. The punch
in the cheek '-lock shows it," Pcrol-
val  replied.
Hullon pondered, knitting
brows, before he said, "Since
thought the man was Jordan,
wouldn't  know  him  again."
"No; hc was about Jordan's height
and build, bul I only saw his figure,
ll showed dark and rather indistinct
againsl   the lighl."
"Well," said Hulton, "you sec lhc
importance of this. We have something lo go upon; a stranger was
in the factory." Then be got up
wilh a look of keen relief in his
worn  face.    "I  thank you ami  your
partner; yon have given mc hope.
Some day all who knew my hoy will

Foster remarked, "I'm sorry for

"I imagine the fellow who shot
