German People
Favor Ruthlessnesa
War Party and People Appear to Ee
as One on the Question
Every one wo.dd rather blame a
government.than a nation, aud the
very magnitude of Germany's crimes
in thc present war has led the charitably disposed to seek a scapegoat.
That was fundamentally the reason
for thc denunciation of thc kaiser in
the early days of thc war which so
angered Germans '.u America; it was
the degree of actuarial solvency
which each society has, as of December 31st, 1917. The Act provides further that at the end of each three
year period, after 1917, a similar
statement of valuation shall be file. 1
in order to ascertain whether or not
the society lias maintained ils degree
of actuarial solvency. The object of
the Act is, that where a society
shows at lhe end of thc first three
year term that has not maintained
its degree of actuarial solvency lhat
there shall be such an increase in
rates as will insure that the society
shall maintain the degree of solvency
which il had on lhe 31st of December, 1917, or improve thai position.
In view of this legislation lhe
Canadian Order of Foresters decided
nol to wait until the 31st December,
1917, to ascertain the facts required
by lhe Act, and, shortly after thr
Act* was passed in 1916, this society
engaged Mc Abb Landis of Nashville, Tenner- ee, for the pur-ose oi
investigating its actuarial standing as
of the 31st December. 1915. Mr.
Landis is one of the leading actuaries
on the American continent today, and
is so recognized in the insurance
world." His experience extends over
a term of twenty-five years, eighteen
years of which has been devoted exclusively to Fraternal
Insurance Associations. In tluse
eighteen years Mr. Landis has
advised with one hundred and
eighty-six societies, six of these societies being Canadian, He has also
been for fifteen years on the Coin
riittee of Statutory Legislation of
lhe. National Fraternal Congress, and
been prominently identified   wilh

The Actuary has found that during
its whole experience of thirty-six
years, the Canadian Order of Foresters has had an exceptionally favo -
il,!,- mortality experience. Bccaust
of this exceedingly favorably mortality experience, and the large amount
of accumulated funds, Mr. Landis
has becn aide to prepare unusuallv
favorable monthly assessment rates,
v 1 iclt will enable the society to provide for the payment of all future
claims 'Ihese rates of assessment,
as compared ivitll rales deduced from
other mortality tables, is very much
in the advantage of the-members of
il.e Canadian Order of Foresters.
In constructing a mortality    tabic
oir thc experience of the society, Mr,
Landis. has eliminated the first    five
yiars of membership duration.    The
object  of  this course  is  ill  order  lo
insure thc death    rate    under    more
nearly normal conditions than  would
be  possible by taking the first    five
years of duration inlo consideration.
Dining lhc (irsl five years there is a
gain  from  recent medical    selection.
Hc Ins recommended' a schedule of
rates,  which, based  upon  the  report
which will bc filed as of tht 31st December, 1917, should show more ihan
100 per cent, of actuarial    solvency,
I because of margins of safety which
j may bc classified as follows:
!    First: There would be gains fron.
I actual interest earned iu excess of 4
per cent.,  which  is the  amount    the
'Actuary fixes as thc basis of calculation.    As a matter of fact, the av-
. crape interest earned by the. society,
uf'on its Insurance Fund, as at pros-
lent invested, is 5.44 per cent.   As the
. r-.icitrilies held    by the    society    are
I rostly  for long terms,  there  should
be a substantial gain on Interest ac
Second: There would he. a sa\iri|.;
from a lower death rate hy reason ol
the fact that lhc lirst five years of
membership has been eliminated by
Mr. Landis inconstruetiug his mortality table,
Third: There would also be gains
from accumulation forfeited lliroush
lapses.    No allowance was made for;
such gains in fixing the schedule of!
Fourth; There would be a surplus
in contributions, owing to lhc fact
lhat, after eliminating the first five
years of membership, the Actuary
loaded the tabular rales by an arbitrary sum lo make assurance doubly
Notices of motion have gone out to
the membership providing for readjustment, and lhis legislation will
be considered at the next meeting of
lhe High Court of the Order in June.
The rates for members who are
now  in   the   Order    start    at   sixteen

tier,    One option provides    that all
members who are between  Ihe    attained ages of slxten to forty live, in-'
elusive, may elect to take term insurance, which will entitle them to carry
their tin-sent insurance at their present  rate until they have attained linage of sixty vears.     Members   between tlie attained ages of forty-six'
and fifty-five, inclusive, may eleel lo
continue the present amount of their!
insurance, at the present    rates,    as
tein insurance for a period of fifteen
years.    Those members who are between  the attained ages  o*��fifty-six
and sixty-nine, inclusive,jean    carry
their present  protection  as  term  in-'
surancc, at their present rate, for ten
years.    Term protection of members
between the attained ages of seventy;
to    seventy-six    gradually   decrease sj
from nine years at the age of seventy, to three years at the age    of
cventy-six and over.
The second option insures to all,
members, no matter when admitted,
when they attain the age of seventy,
and over, thc right to paid up insur-1
ance for amounts set out in the schedule prepared by the Actuary, where
itch ilieinbers do not desire to continue to pay the life rates, This
schedule entitles thc members from
s;xieen to eighteen to paid up insurance for $900 at the age of seventy,
w liieh amount gradually decreases as
tlie attained age of the member increases.
The adoption of tlie proposed re-,
adjustment will place the society "on,
a basis of absolute solvency from an j
actuarial standpoint, and enable it to
maintain its splendid position in the
world of Fraternal Insurance.

New Railway Enactment in England
Has Curious Effect on Fares
The, new railway enactment in
England, enjoining a 50 per cent,
rise on all railway fares, has bad
the curious effect of making lhe single fare between two adjoining stations in Lancashire 2d., whilst the
return fare is 41-2d, A recent writer, although loath lo spoil the joke,
supplies the explanation. Before the
rise of 50 per cent., the single fare
between the two stations used to bc
ll-2i.L, and thc return fare 3d. Au
addition of 50 per cent, to the single
fare would have brought il up lo
2 1-4(1., but railway companies long
ago set llieir faces against farthings.
The board of trade, however, sets its
against morc than a 50 per cent.
So the single fare was lixed at
and merely in order to main-
a claim to its just rights, the
railway company fixed the fare for
return at 4 1 -2d.���Christian Science

Germany's Initial Failures Have Meant One Long Succession of
Failures for lhc Central Powers, the End of Wliicli
Must Necessarily Prove Militarily Fatal
On lln: eve ol the opening of the
campaign of 1917 wiih, iis expected
military decision thai will make il
possible io obtain and enforce durable peace, a high British military authority who has lhe fullest access lo
all sources of information on all
points of ihe general plan of lhc l-'.n-l
tunic  Miles, has, witli the approval
ol  lhe  war ollice, prepared ail iinpor-
lanl statement lor publication, It Is I
a survey nf llu military position in
Europe based upon a knowledge "i
the Iruis .'ml factors, niauj of which
h v.- not be, n niadc public hitherto,
I he statement says:
"Britain and hei allies arc looking
forward with complete confidence to j
Ihc opening of what they regard as
the linal Stage ol the war, lhe fight,
ing season ni' 1917, To form an
opinion ii is necessary   to   examine
the s.ilicni  (mis of  llu- war.
"lu launching war upon Europe tlu,1
Central Powers believed lli.it one
plan, and one plan only, would win
for them iiie Immense sink'1 for
which lhcy were prepared to play���
the mastery of Europe, That plan
was ihc swift destruction of their
enemies one at a time,
"Accordingly, the first step was to
(.Irish France; the secoiul, to concentrate practically the whole
strength of iheir victorious armies
upon the task of delivering such a
blow to Russia as would leave lhal
power helpless and al Iheir mercy.
The entry of Britain into the war
yas ou the whole not expected at
first; but in any ease lhis would nol
have modified the plan, since it was
perfectly understood lhat Britain
could nol put more Ihnn lr'fl,()00 men
into the field if she did decide to
come to the assistance of France.
"The event proved that forecast
correct, but it also proved Germany
in-apable of accomplishing whit
sin thought she eotihl accomplish
despite llie fact that no treaty rights
or scruples of any kind were permitted to hamper her movements, and
that in numerical strength, materia!
rctources antl complete preparedness
the odds were overwhelmingly in her
favor. Despite all lhe odds the first
move of the Central Powers was defeated in 1914, and very thoroughly
defeated. The second move began
early in 191s, and had definitely failed by the autumn of tint year."
After reviewing iu detail thc strategical moves to date on the various
fronts, il is remarked in the statement:
"Strategically considered, Germany's initial failures have meant
one long succession of failures of the
Central Powers, the end of which
in ist necessarily prove militarily fatal lo Ihem, though that fact may
veil mean, in a wider sense their
ultimate salvation���the Allies are
lil'liliug to secure the peace of the
v. ovld���a consummation as much to
be desired by the deceived and misled people of the Central Powers as
by everyone else."
The statement concludes:
"In the last year    lhc Allies have
been making continued progress, In
everything making for success in war
Ihey are vastly richer aud better
equipped than lhcy wire a year ago.
During lhe same period lhc Central
Powers have definitely abandoned all
I lans of conquest, have suffered n
steady   deterioration     of     resisting
power. Aware ol all this, and greatly
needing lhc means of spurring llieir
jaded and weary peoples, Ihey made
overtures foi peace. If by any odd
chance these   Bhould     In-   accepted
Ihere would he 901110 hope of cvnd
ing lhe jusl penalties of lawlessness
and criminal aggression. If a flal
rejection came ii would bring, fo-si,
a  whip   for   llieir jaded  people,    and
secondly, n sufficient means to close
lln- mouths of any critic of further
lawlessness and  criminality,
"The submarine threat followed
naturally anil in itself presents lhc
most naked confession yet offered "1
ihe Central Powers' recognition of
failure of llieir own grandiose plans,
Tl e threat would never have been
i'rule bin for Germany's recognition
of her inability to obtain a military
victory, ll would seem lhat Britain
and her Allies have already alniosl
got this menace sufficiently iu hand
The. danger has (cached ils climax,
while lhe measures for coping v.ilh
fl are being extended every hour.
"Actually, that remark Iiis precisely lhe entire outlook for 1917. The
growing strength of the A'.ies faces
lhc declining siren ;th of the Central
Powers. The date of the end cannot
yet be fixed; ils n?t'ire Is inevitable.
II will finally extinguish the Central
Powers' menace to the peace of the

Mr, Dawson's reference to thc
small irrigation schemes is of particular interest lo thc farmers of West-]
trn Canada, where there are lumd
reds���literally thousands���of creeks
and streams which could bc used in
a small way for irrigation purposes.
According to the opinion of an officer of the Western Canada Irrigation Association the day is comina
when irrigation in Western Canada
will bc limited only by the amount
of water available. ��� 'lhe increasing
interest in irrigation is indicated by
the fact lhal the annual meeting of
the association in 1917 will be held
in Saskatchewan lor the first time.

A Sound Institution
Canadian Order of Foresters Has a
Most Enviable Record
The Canadian Order of Foresters
lave for years occupied a prominent
position as one of the hailing Fraternal Insurance Societies operating
in Canada,
It was instituted in 1879 by 4S8,
members who seceded from the
American Ortler of Foresters, Today
it has a membership of over 90,000,
which is lhe largest purely Canadian
membership of any of the fraternal
insurance societies doing business In
the  Dominion.
The society has had il most successful record and has accumulated
funds, which, at tlie present time,
amount to between live ami a half
and six million dollars. Last year
was apparently one of the most successful years iu thc hir-lory of the
institution. The amount added to the
insurance funds for 1916 was between
four and five hundred thousand dollars." Notwithstanding this success
lhc management decided ro Rsccrtai.1
what the actual standing oi llie society was, and secured the services of
one of the most competent actuaries
on the continent, Acting on the advice of lhc actuary, the Society decided to re-adjust its rates and place
Itself upon a basis which will give it
at least 100 per cent, acturial solvency,
Hy taking this course, while ils
funds wcrc still piling up it has been
able to treat ils members much morc.
favorably than many of the societies
which have re-adjusted llieir business
during recent years.
The management is to he congratulated upon a course of action which
will place the society upon a Bpletl
did financial basis, and insure the future of lhe order for all lime,
A neutral who has from time lo
time contributed to tlu Times interesting articles on conditions in tier-
many writes to lhal paper from
Cologne in these terms:
The exasperation produced by the
duration of lhe war ami tin increasing absence of nutritious food has
now produced much more original
and independent thinking ami talking than 1 have known in Germany
since ihc beginning oi llie war. Tho
easily led German middle lasses do
nol know what lo make ol lhe silua-j
lion, and from lhe beginning, when
lhcy were told tint Germany had
been "fallen upon," their view of the
war has been an entirely distorted
view. But never have their leaders
been so bitterly critisiscd :���.. during
lhe last few weeks, liven Himlcn-
btirg, the great god llindcnburg, has
been as much abused as Bcthmann-
llollwcg, 1 have heard people here
and there say good tilings oi Count

There is, however, one. great reason, of which you are probably nol
yel aware, why the German people
generally believe in lhe hope of peace
��� a bright hope ami au increasing
hope. It is nol thai tiny believe in
military victory, li is not that lhcy
believe in victory In the west, where,
indeed, defeat i- considered to be
almost certain. Noi Is il lhe idea

It is an open secret that IlindenburiJ
who has just made his second visit
to the western front, relumed profoundly impressed by the fact that
the politicians must endeavor to
make peace by hook or by crook,
'lhis is not mere gossip. 1 have the
Until directly from a source which,
as you know, has always proved accurate in my previous communications.
As I told you, the area of fighting
on lhc Soinme and before Verdun is
known a.s "the Grave." The whole
line from Alsace to Ypres is really a
nightmare to the Herman army.
Every sort of influence and "pull,'
governmental, social and financial, ij
used to prevent the return uf particular regiments and particular ofii__
cers lo the western front, although
lhe authorities hold out such attractions as superior supplies of food,
shorter intervals in the trenches, and
lhe amusements at Lille, Ghent,
Melz and other places, which are
I rovided In order to maintain a
morale that has not been so broken
for more than a century. The eastern
army, although it thought that    the
capture of Warsaw meant r       '-.
Kussia, has been able to bear its disappointments because of its variouj
successes since then. The westers
army has had no successes.
For lhe hiding of my identity I
never talk lo officers who have r��-
turned from thc front if I can help
it, but 1 am always seeing the reli-
lives of officers and hearinu what
they write and say. On the ���:
general after general has been ���if.r.er-
seded, and the number of punishments of non-commissioned offi rera
and men is appalling. What the
losses on the western fron- have
been nobody knows, but nobody believes the published figures. The parents of young have just been i-i-
formed that he was not taken prisoner on the Somme in Julv, 3: thev
had been told, but that he was killed.
I am .constantly hearing of similar
cases. You must s-e in the newspapers how Indignation about the
censorship preps out from time to
lime, but the indignation is really
much stronger even jraon; offieialj
than among the newspaper writers
themselves, Nothing that they print
is believed.
My latest tour has dispelled many
lingering illusions about German efficiency, But I have been struck by
onc or two of the successful German
devices for maintaining public
spirit. I never could remember n-.ore
music or better theatrical entertainments. As I said before, military
bauds are everywhere. There is no
singing now when soldiers leave for
the front, and very Jew people would
take the trouble to see them off were
it not for the bands. You will have
noticed that the output of German
books and magazines ar.d amusing
papers has, if anything, increased
during thc war. A recent and typical example of the German methods
���which has the additional advantage
of making a show of German "broad-
mindness ���Is the publication of an
entirely new edition of Dickens.
Speaking generally, while yon in
England seem anxious to depress
your people by suppressing amusements, the German government is
following an opposite course. They
havc a difficult task before th��m, and
lln- next few months will be the mosl
critical in lhc history of any nation
unless they are right about submarines.
The German public no lonecr believes all lhe stories that they are
told about submarines���such reports,
for instance, as lhat missing longdistance submarines have arrived
safely, but that their arrival has been
kept secret by the government for
excellent reasons.
While, however, it is true (hat tho
big submarines have not been the
success that ihey were expected to
be, lhe feverish building of <nrbma-
riue parts in all the 111 anu fact u ring

Considerable piin has been caused
to the members of the English
church at Sandwick hy rumors of a
proposal to close the church of St,
Andrew's to public worship. With
a history of ovcr forty years, begun
iu the original church and carried
ou in the present edifice, St. An
drew's is the mother church of the
district, and reverenced as such by
those of iis officers and congregation who are residents of years standing, Should the rumors be founded upon actual intention, ii is un
derstood that a strong protest w'll
be forwarded to the Bishop of the
diocese, on the grounds that the
reasons I'or closing the church are
of the shallowest, and that nil places of worship in the d'Stllct suffer
from small attendance during the
winter, a fact Uml city bred poo

Plea for Legislation to Improvj the
.Marketing Conditions
The Canadian Produce*Association
at ils rccenl convention in Montreal
passed a resolution asking for the
immediate enactment of legislation
to provide and legalize standards for
all Canadian eggs, and l". provide
Mich inspection as may be necessary
to enforce sueb legislation, and to
ir-sue government certificates, if required, and, further, thai this legislation prescribe regulations to provide against lhe sale of eggs unlit for
food, making due allowance for reasonable deterioration,
A deputation which  waited    upon
Hon. Mr.  Burrell lo urge the adoption of ils course outlined    pointed
out that millions of dollars are now
lost annually in Canada by deterioration in quality of eg_s between point
of production and point of consuhip-
I tion, and by the general lowering of
I prices owing to lack-   of    uniformly
high grade in the commodity   marketed.    Such waste, it was   pointed
l out, should not bc allowed at    any
i time, and is doubly lo bc deplored at
a time when enormous quantities of
I foodstuffs are being sent to the bot-
] ioni by Germany's submarine    warfare.    Next to the call to produce, it
\.ns slated, follows close at ils heels
a  similar  patriotic call    to  conserve
that wliicli is produced.
1    As a further reason for the establishment of an official guarantee   of
eggs marketed, il  was    pointed    out
such guarantees are already given by
Kussia and olhcr    countries,    which
after  thc   war,    will  again    compete
with us in the marketing of eggs in
Great Britain.

British Columbia is a dairying
province, yet milk costs the consumers more than is being paid in
England under more severe war
conditions than exist here. Similarly, bread is dearer in Canada,
one of the world's granaries, than
in the .QUI Country. The day of
the politicians is passing, for government by party is the same thing
a.s the ruling of the people by vested interests, The Dominion Government is striving to encourage
increased production and rightly,
and the principal method by which
this may be attained is by more
economical cultivation and handling. Yet, we are not aware that
tlie Dominion auiliorities have done
anything to reduce the tariff on
farm machinery, implements, etc,,
the reacou being that the manufacturers are behind the government
regardless of patriotism and production. This is why we say that
party rule is passing to an iiu-
niourned grave, to give way to
national government. It is no good
turning out Sir Robert Borden
merely to let in Sir Wilfred Lander
for the change would be one of interests alone in the main and not
one of real policy. The politicians
today in Canada are living in a
fool's paradise, but "the Dominion
is the sufferer, So long as our people suffer in silence they will continue to suffer, hut when the farmers get up and ask their dominion
representatives how much longer
ihey are to be taxed for the sole
benefit of the manufacturers ring,
then the politicians will be scared
into action. But naybe is will be
too late. Man-, of our Canadian
born pride themselves upon the
fact that Canada has no House of
Lords. It is woi tli suggesting how
ever whether, after all, one House
of Lords is not superior to two
houses doing the bidding of the
vested iuterests, right here in Canada, liven Russia had but one

National Government
Before thinking of taking over
theC. N, R. aud Grand Trunk,
the country would have to get rid
of the patronage system. This is
a hard thing to do, because as administrations succeed one another
in Canada their first care is to discharge the political obligations they
have contracted while in opposition '
Both parties would doubtless be glad
to be rid of this iucubus, but there
i. a disadvantage to whichever party
first attempts to do so.   A coalition
government could most easily make
the break, which is the best argu- j
ment for that form of  government'
in Canada today that we know  of.
