To Reconstitute Justice and  Liberty
On Their Proper Foundations
A predatory nation has, with every
accompaniment of barbarous cruelty,
sought to terrorize humanity by invasions, deportations of inhabitants,
seizures of territory, antl wholesale
destruction ol cities and monuments.
What is tin- use of asking for a
status quo ante which leaves this
same nation possessed of its original power to desecrate all the sanctities of mankind? Our mission is
to free nationalities, to give the. smaller peoples a chatic

But the first step in any such process, the absolutely indispensable

Distribution of Cereals
How      the     French      Government
Handles the Grain, Milling and
Baking Situation
Details of the decree issued by the
French government which places the
purchase and distribution of all cereals under control of the slate have
bi-eii received by the food administration,
The decree became effective Scp-
tember 1. A central office, consisting
of representatives of the government
and of the grain merchants, has been
created, There is also to be a central committee of millers and bakers.
Cereals may be purchased only by
French millers and grain merchants,
and purchasers of grain must give
notice <d their buying to the Stale
and must in no ease pay prices in
excess of those fixed bv the decree
ui Inly 16,
Millers and grain merchants may
buy local growing crops nnlv on Condition that they will not require
transport by railways, waterways, or
motors. The Stale will supervise
grain distribution, and at all times be
informed as to the exact slate of
cereal supplied. Grain may bc sent
by rail or waterway only by instruction of a government officer charged
with the distribution.
So ninny people, both men and women, stiller from skin troubles, such
as eczema, blotches, pimples and irritation that a word of advice is necessary. It is a great mistake for such
sufferers and those with bad complexions to smear themselves with greasy
ointments. Often they could not do
anything worse for the grease clogs
Ihe pores of lhe troubled skin and
Iheir condition actually becomes
worse, j
When there are pimples or captions, or an irritating or itching rush,
a soothing boracic solution may help
to allay lhe irritation, but of course
that does not cure the trouble. Skin
complaints come from an impure condition of the blood and will persist
until the blood is thoroughly purified.
It is well known that Dr. Williams
l'ink Pills have effeclcd the best results in many forms of skin disorders and blemishes. This is due to
the fart that these pills make new,
rich blood, and that this new blood
attacks the impurities that give rise
lo skin trouble:; and disperses them;
so that Dr. Williams' Pink I'ills cure
skin disorders from within the system���the only sure way.
It should be added that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have a beneficial effect upon the general health. They
increase the appetite and energy and
cure diseases that arise from impure

A Wild Duck Farm
Successful Experiment   in Connecticut for Protecting Witd
About two years ago, two public
spirited citizens, interested in wild
life conservation, acquired about
4,000 acres of waste laud in lhe state
of Connecticut, with a view to establishing a sanctuary for wild fowl, and
of increasing the supply of game by
scientific propagation, They sent an
expert lo lake winnipegosls in Manitoba to study the habits of lire
ducks that nest and breed in lhat. region, which is in the heart o* tlie
great duck-breeding grounds of this
continent, and to bring back young
ducklings to form a nucleus for the
propagating work.
Aboul thirteen different species, including a considerable number of
canvas backs, were thus procured,
pictures were taken showing their
nests, aud the situations runl con-
dillafts surrounding the breeding
places have, been reproduced on lhc
Connetcicut farm. A certain (lumber of them arc pinioned, so as to
supply a breeding Muck, bin a large
majority so raised are allowed to migrate with the wild fowl which come
to the refuge on iheir migrations.
The birds born and bred iu llle refuge return to it on their flights
north, knowing thai they will find
protection in their ulil home. The experiment has been most successful,
and is encouraging those who feel
tbat propagation is one of lhc very
important measures winch must be
undertaken to restore wild bird life.

The Point of View
Two Yeara at the Agricultural Col-
le(je Taught the Boy
Some Sense
A friend was chuckling ovcr llic
difference a two year course in an
agricultural college had wrought ill
his sou.
"The year that boy went lo college/' he said, 'my south field was
awful thin, One day Mr. Blank
looked ovcr the fence where John
and 1 were plowing and offered mc
a heap of well-rotted manure from
an old barn. John was taking a load
of corn to town, and I told liim to
hitch onto lhe oltl wagon and fetch
it load of manure when he came
home. Do you suppose he would do
il: Nut he. I had to send the hired
hand, because John was too tony to
ride Inline ou a load of manure,
"Hut last year," he smiled rt minis
r.cntly, "after John bad had a two
years' course in agriculture, he came
home from town with a wagon load
of manure reaching to ihe top of
double sideboards.
"I nudged his ma when he drove
into the gate. 'What's thai you'vi
brought home with you?' I asked.
"The rascal just grinned at mi .
'I've brought home a great load of
humus,' he said.
"Thinks I, if Iwo years of college
will teach a boy sense, il's a pity
more boys can't go to college," -

Live Stock Depletion
Nations of    Europe    Now    Rapidly
Depleting Their Supply
The U. S. food administration has
received directly from the French
government figures showing llie decrease of live stock in France as a
result of the war.
On December 31, 1916, according
to the official French figures, lilt cattle had decreased to a total of 12,-
341,900 as compared with 14,807,000
in 191.1 or 16.6 per cent.; sheep decreased from 16, 213,000 in 1913 lo
10,845,000 December 31 lasl or 33 per
cent.; swine decreased from 7,048,-
000 in 1913 to 4,361,900 at the close
of last year or 38 per cent.
The pcrcapila consumption per
annum of meat in France at lhe present time is estimated by the Wench
governnieni at 69.61 pounds of beet,
11.16 pounds of mutton, and* 21.48
pounds of pork.
The French figures emphasize the
recent statement of the U. _S. food
administration that the nations* _ of
Europe are now rapidly depleting
their supply of live slock, and must
therefore depend largely upon the
United States for their meat and
dairy products after lhe war.

Nelson's Patience
Famous British    Admiral    Followed
Sane Naval Tactics
"For something between two years
and two and a half years Nelson
cruised off Toulon, in weariness of
spirit, wailing for his opportunity.
Why did he not go in and destroy
the enemy fleet? We have his answer in his own words. When the
opposing admiral 'cut a caper a few
miles outside Toulon.' Nelson pointed out lhat 'he well knew I could
not gel at him wilhout placing tin:
ships under the batteries which stir
. rounded that port, and that had I at-
j tacked him in that position he could
retire into his secure nest whenever
! he pleased,'
i    "Time and again Nelson    and tli_
i other admirals of his lime must have
! been tempted to 'lake the offensive,'
I but    tlicy realized    lhat ships could
j not fight even such puny forts as ex-
j istcd in Ihosc days; and, after twen-
| ty-otic years of warfare, peace came,
in  1815, finding the French licet   as
strong in ships of war as when hostilities opened in 1793; 'but this country bad reaped the manifold benefits
of sea command,

"German Barbarians"
"What is the feeling among the
people of Japan regarding the German methods of warfare?" was lhc
question pill to a high Japanese gov-
e.nment official,  and  he  replied:
"That they have acted like barbarians, The feeling of sympathy for the
Miles who have bad to contend with
llie so methods has been shown ill
numerous ways by our people, In the
sending of money and of supplies to
help. We also sent nurses to Prance,
to Kussia, and to Rumania, I think

Desert Shoes
British Tommy Has New Method ol

The British Tommy, a Lancashirs
lad, who said to bis lieutenant, 'I

Manchester mud,' will be appreciated when it is understood what the
desert sand is. It shifts about like
quicksilver at places. The British
Tommy's latest method of overcoming the obstacle is the sand-shoe,
which is made of steel and looks,

Believe That Democracy Must in the Nut ure of Things
Triumph is a Dangerous Illusion, and if Every Effort is Not
Put Forth To Win, tlie Cause Will Surely Be Lost
"Viewed from lho political angle of
vision th" war is clearly a conflict,
perhaps the linal conflict, between
the democratic and the-* autocratic
principles. ll is the battle, of the
Frcncl. revolution fought over again,
but on a vastly greater scale and between antagonists far more formidable to one another, In the course of
the war both principles have developed their strength and at thc
same lime displayed their weakness.
Democracy lias shown its power to
unite great peoples, iu themselves and
with one another, in Ihe pursuit of
au ideal aim, and it h:n shown this
ai a moment when, for want of an
ideal aim, lhc same peoples were
nul and sundered internally, by a
multitude ni petty quarrels, In lhis
way democracy has revealed its
strength, On the other hand it has
shown llu- weaklier..; which ironies
from divided counsels, from alternating policies ami above all from mistrust of its great men. And yet il
has not been daunted by the difiicul-
lir-s and misfortunes arising from
these causes; hut has held on to its
task iu spile of them all; so that we
may say its weakness has served Incidentally to deepen the impression
of its strength, Autocracy presents
the .same double record, In the German model, at all events, it lias displayed an iinemnse efficiency in the
pursuit of ils aim, Per contra it
has proved itself to be thoroughly
immoral, nud revealed its true nature
ns a principle of mingled treachery
and violence in the life of nations,
thereby condemning itself. to everlasting mistrust,
"Clearly it is futile to attempt any
estimate of the effects of the war on
democracy unless we consider at the
same time its parallel effects oil autocracy. The two things must bc kept
in mind together. It is the common
practice of each of the. parlies to
look at lhc matter exclusively from
its own point of view, with the result that most discussions of thc
question exhibit the facts as far
simpler than they really arc. Wc
arc apt to be solely impressed by the
phenomena on our own side. Wc
see an immense consolidation of
democratic peoples firmly united in
defense of their principle and from
this wc draw the conclusion that our
principle has already vindicated ils
right to rule the world.
"But that is not llic view of German autocracy. It has not lost faith
iu itself���at least not yet. It is waiting for lhe end of the war���that
'little, more' which is needed to turn
the war into a completed fact���to
prove that we arc wrong. These German defenders of autocracy are
pointing with pride to the results of
their system, and, wdiat is more, they
are pointing with contempt to the
lesulls of its opposite. 'What,' they
are asking, 'has enabled Germany lo
put up ihis tremendous fight and to
hold together as a single-minded unit
through the strain and stress of these
terrible years? What is the secret of
our immense efficiency? It is aulo-
cracy which has enabled us to do
these things. On the other hand it is
democracy which is responsible for
the inefficiency of our opponents���
for the political difficulties of France
for thr present chaos in Russia, for
the inability of the United States to
make up their mind until it was so
late; for the unprcparcdness of the
British and for the ease with which
wc fooled them before the war; for
the want of cohesion and continuity
in Iheir military policy, for llie failure at Gallipoli, for lhe scandals in
Mesopotamia, for the indiscipline of
their working classes for their domestic broils and dissensions, and for
the way they sacrifice their greal
"These arguments arc theirs, not
mine, Hut though they are inconclusive at the moment, there is no
denying that they would wear a very
different aspect if the Germans were
to win. There are millions of people
iu all countries, not excepting our
own, whose faith in democracy is by
no means assured even now, and it
is doubtful if any vestige of their
faith would remain with them in
presence of a German victory. To
meet this by saying that lhc Germans are not going lo win is beside
the. question. Indeed it is something
worse than a mere irrelevance. There
arc ton many people about who assume that democracy, just because it
is democracy, will triumph auto-
��� nialieally by virtue of sonic Divine
Right inherent in iis nature. This is
a most dangreous illusion, and if wc
indulge it we shall bc beaten, and
what is more we shall deserve to he
beaten, The superiority of the democratic to the autocratic principle must
not be laken as a fact established in
the nature of things which of itself
nnd by itself will decide the issue of
the war. Rather is it the very question which the issue of the war is
going to decide, and it will not be
decided in favor of democracy unless
every democrat puis the last ounce
ef strength into the struggle."���L.

Only Kaiser Law Left
Object of War Is to Enforce Recognized International Law
In speaking of lhe conference thai
he had with the kaiser at headquarters over.the submarine question, Mr.
Gerard says:
We then had a long discussion in
detail ol the whole submarine question, in ihc course of which the emperor said lhat the submarine had
come to slay; that it was a weapon
recognized by all countries, and that
he had seen it picture of a proposed
giant submarine in an American
paper, the Seinilific American. He
added dial, anyway, there was no
longer any International law. To
this last statement Chancellor von
llethniaiin J'lnlhveg agreed,"
This was shortly before Germany
gave her pledge in the Sussex case,
"'ihere was no longer any international law"���-the words are ihe kaiser's. In truth there was not much
at that time, in spile of lhe three
years' effort of this government lo
save some shreds of it. There assuredly was none by which the German government considered itself
bound. It began the war witli a violation of international law, as admitted by the chancellor, when it invaded Belgium. As the. occupying
power in Belgium, it violated it over
and over again, as in the matter of
the deportations and enforced labor.
Every merchant vessel that was torpedoed was sunk in violation of international law. The kaiser, therefore, was quite right, though unexpectedly frank.
As far as Germany is concerned
there is no international law today
Could there ever be any that would
bind a Hohcnzollern or a Hohenzol-
lern state? 'lhat is. a matter to
which those who are now talking of
peace would do well to give sonic
attention. What we seem to see. is an
irreconciable conflict between the
doctrine known as "tlie will to power" and any rule of human conduct
agreed upon by civilized men to govern their relations. One of the objects of this war, as far as this government is concerned is to see that
there is an international law.���From

Conservation of Food
Ontario Making Rapid   Strides   Towards Food Saving
Ontario is making rapid strides towards food saving. In these war
days, we are doing many new Ihings
which wc would not have thought
out in peace times. Almost the very
newest experiment is that oi community canning. I'arkhill Women's
Institute is making a successful trial.
The canning plant had a capacity of
five hundred cans a day. The machinery is .simple���a 5 h.p. boiler,
two vats, a sink, a copper kettle, pans,
spoons, measures, etc. 'I'he vats were,
heated with steam roils, and can be
brought lo boiling in three minutes,
Fifty quarts of fruit ran be, cooked
at once. "The smaller vat is used tor
blanching and sterilizing, ami the
copper keltic for making syrups,
jams, jellies, etc.
The aim is to conserve perishable
fruits and vegetables, and to --tore
material contributed by interested
helpers for convalescent homes and
hospitals. Everyone in a radius of
ten miles, who keeps chickens, has
been asked to contribute one chicken, and each woman who canned her
own fruit contributed to this store.
It looks as if this might be lhe beginning of a good work thai should
not end when the war need is over.
Man Power oi
Germany To-Day
There are Now Over Five    Million
Men Under Arms
The.  Associated   l'ress  is  able    to
give approximately the figures rrp-
rcscnling the man power of Germany in the war at the present time,
together with the casualties, us follows:
Fixed formations on the various
fronts, employed ou lines of communication and stationed in the interior,
Divisions undergoing formation
and men in depots, 000.000.
Losses in killed, permanently disabled and prisoners, 4,000,000.
Wounded under treatment In hospitals, 500,000.
Total 10,650,000.   .
These figures account for all Oilmen called out up lo tlle. present for
service as follows:
Trained nirn mobilized immediately
on the outbreak of the war .1.500,000.
Untrained   ersatz   (compensatory)
reservists called oul, August, 1914, to
February, 1915 800,000.
'Class of 1914 recruits called oul
November, l.M, to lanuarv, 1915
First bun of untrained landstrum.
called out ai the beginning of 1915
Class of 1915 called out May-July,
1915 450,000.
Remainder of untrained landstrum
called   out  the  same  monili   150,1100.
Class of )yi6, called out September
and November, 1915 450,000.
Contingent of hitherto exempted
men, called out in October, 1916, 300-
St.ond contingent of exempted
men called out early in 1916, 200,000,
Second ban landstrum, early in 1916,
Class of 1917 called out March-
November, 1910, 450,000.    |     .
Third contingent of exempted men
late  in  1916, 300,000.
Class  1918  called  out    November,
1916, to  March,  1917, 450,000.
('lass  1919 called out  in    part    in
1917, 300,000.
Additional exemptions, 1917, 150,-
Total 10,500,000.
The small discrepancy in the figures is accounted for by the omission
of the male units.
The lotal male resources of Germany since the beginning of hostilities, including the yearly classes of
recruits up to 19-0, number about
14,000,000. Those called up number
10,600,000. The remainder are accounted for as follows: The remaining porlion of the class of 1919 awaiting call 150,000; class of 1920 slill
uncalled 4511,001); men employed as
indispensable in industries and administrations, 5011,1101); men unable to
reach Germany 200,000; men entirely
exempted owing lo physical disability, .',180,000.
Recruits of lhe 1920 class cannot be
called legally until they attain their
17lh birthday.      *

Peace Through War
By Former President W. J. Tucker
of Dartmouth  College
T believe that I am not mistaken
iu affirming that the growing concensus of opinion among lhc neutral
nations is to the affect lhal the most
direct road lo peace lies through
war, I do not wonder at thc present
endeavor after peace in llie name of
religion. I respect and honor it. I
can hardly see how iu the circumstance- attending its inception, it
could have been delayed. Hut for
tiie reasons given 1 question none
the less its timeliness. When religion speaks its final word it must
speak with what I have termed the
inexorable simplicity of its ancient
code of national righteousness. 1 do
not believe that Germany i.s a- yel
'prepared in the spirit and temper of
us mind to listen lo that word.
Meanwhile, .1 see no other possible
course for us to follow as a nation
than that which Lincoln, marked oul
for us, in circumstances like those
in which we are now placed, and in
tht following out of which we reached in due lime the goal of peace���
"Willi malice toward none, with
charity for all; with firmness in Ihc
right, as God gives us to see the
right, let us strive on to finish llle
work . c are in, to do all which may
achieve and cherish a jusl and lasting .peace,"
The Cheerful British Soldier
There is no doubt as to lhe cheerful courage of the llritish Tommy,
"lie will go llirougli the mosl awful
lull for it week and conic oul of il
wilh a smile." "We'll never heal
those I, Mows," a German prisoner is
quoted as saying. Discipline i-r
strict, but the relations between officers and men arc of the best. No
one denies the courage and fighling
quality of the Germans. But they no
longer have lhe confidence with
which they began the war. The letters taken from the dead and lho
prisoners show that. The government "won't bc satisfied until we arc
ah killed," says one. This is not the
spirit of victory.���Philadelphia Ledger.

Father -The idea of vour calling

Tommy���Well, that's what you

When Dr. Michaelis spoke for th*
first lime, as Imperial chancellor, to
the Reichstag, he made no rcfirence
that Germany could hope to accomplish ber objects by the operations of
her armies. He addressed himself,
in the very first placi, to the. sub
marine campaign, expressing complete confidence that it would bring
victory to Germany and her allies.
The direction of the submarine campaign has evidently been taken over
by the military authorities, and it
was General von Ludehdorfi, and not
the chief of the admiraliy staff, who
said that the submarines would reduce our tonnage and diminish the
supplies of ammunition available fot
our troops.
Evidently llie German) have two
main objects in view. The military
staff hopes that by molesting our
transport their ends may be attained.
The bankers, financiers, and shipowners of the Fatherland indulge the
expectations that our mercantile
marine will be crippled by the end
of the war, just at the lime when
enormous subsidies applied to their
own are bearing fruit.
There is no real reason for alarm
in lhis country, but the people must
realize the situation if the economy
campaign is to have proper result*.
The prime minister, with well-trained optimism, said that our losses
were not so great as they were, but
our output of mercantile shipping
was increasing rapidly, which will
upset some German calculations, and
that our food supplies are assured.
It will bc observed, however, that
the measures referred to are mainly
of a defensive character���the building of ships, which may yet be tar-
gels for submarines, and the conservation of national resources. The
submarine will be suppressed only by
offensive measures and the destruction of the U-boats or the crushing
of them at their bases, The principal areas of activity may be brought
under better control, for there are regions of peculiar peril to shipping
and others where it is practically immune. The navy must do the business.
Sir F.ric Geddes, speaking to his
constituents at Cambridge after his
election, said one of the soundest:
things that has lately heen said about
the navy, and it had reference to the
suppression of submarines. "It is
my duty to know what the Sea Lords
are proposing tn do, and to get
through the material and resources
at their disposal, to form an independent opinion as to whether they
have enough or should have more,
and in every possible way, as far as
a civilian can, help them in their

Hospital Slacken
How a Fourteenth Century Humerv
ist Outwitted the Imposters
Stories o_ how to outwit imppsters
who report sick in order to loaf In
hospitals are among the oldest traditions of the medical branches of
all armies. A fourteenth century collection of anecdotes shows that the
malinger was known in those days.
;��� nd-Cardinal de Bari, who had a hospital at Verceil, found its resources
were being exhausted by men of this
type. Onc day he sent one of his
subordinates to investigate. This
man, Petrlllo by name, who was
something of a humorist, dressed
himself In ihc robes of a physician
and assembled all the patients for an
examination of their wounds. Then
he gravely said: "There is clearly
but one remedy needed to the cure
of ulcers of this character, and that
is an ointment made of human
grease. This very day I Intend, in
consequence, to dravy by lot one
amone- you who will be plunged
alive into boiling water and cooked
for the salvation of all." Seized by
fear, all the patients made haste to
report themselves as fully recovered
from their ulcers and consequently
there was room in the hospital fo.
those who really needed care. Phy*
sicians today, by the use of similar
ruses, have discovered many "hospital slackers."

Complete Service to Ford
Owners Everywhere
COURTEOUS attention to your needs wherever you may
travel ia something you appreciate, and being a Ford
owner you can get it.   Youare always "among friends."
There are more than 700 Ford Dealer Service Stations
throughout Canada. These are always within easy reach of
Ford owners���for gasoline, oil, tires, repairs, accessories,
expert advice or motor adjustments.
The cost of Ford Service is as remarkably low as the cost
of the car itself. Nineteen of the most called for parts cost
only S5.40. Just compare this with the cost of spare parts
for other cars and you will realize the advantage of owning
a Ford.

The average retail price of Family
Patent 1'lour in New Vork from
April to August, inclusive, this year,
has been $15.36 per barrel.
Upon the declared fair price for
wheat thc New Vork price of Family
Patent Hour in the larger packages
should retail In at between $11.75
and $12.75 per barrel, depending Oil
the milling yield of wheat this year
and the price of mill feed. 'The. price
of bakers' Patent flour to small bakers and retailers iu jute packing, allowing for llic millers' and jobbers'
costs ami profits, should range between $10.35 and $11.25 per barrel,
depending on the milling yield of
wheat and lhc price of mill  feeds.
At the present tiin�� contracts arc
being made in New York for wholesale lots of bakers' Patent llour in
jute bags at about $10'65 per barrel
to jobbers, whose present, basis of
distribution would make the flour
cost llie small baker and retailer
about $11,011 per barrel.
The price in Boston will prubobly
be 10 cents inure per barrel, while
:iat in Pittsburgh should bc 10 cents
less; in New Orleans 25 cents less;
Chicago 35 cents less; in Minneapolis 50 cents less, and in Kansas
City 60 cents less per barrel.
Ai the prospective prices for flour
it is improbable that a full 16 ounce
loaf can be delivered lo the consumer for less ihan 10 cents per loaf,
unless the consumer will join with
the bakers and retailers in eliminat-
ig needless  cost.    It may  be  pos-
hle to reduce the cost of bread by
about two cents per loaf if co-operation of bakers, retailers and consumers ran be secured lo effect a
standardized loaf, and if wasteful
practices which have, grown up out
of competitive conditions can bc
eliminated, and a rclliction iu deliv
ery and credit brought about. Some
bakers of u large volume and with
special delivery conditions, may even
bc able to increase this savings
'The baking of large loaves under
non-delivery and cash sales conditions iu large sections of Kurope
would permit the sale at the bakery
door of a 16 ounce loaf from this
prospective price of flour for six
cents. The higher labor, fuel costs
and methods of distribution through
retailers, delivery, credit and other
expensive re-handling systems In the
United  States increases  the  price.
Utilization of Waste
The utilization of waste in the
battle-wrecked pans of France has
been reduced to tl science, All the
pieces of shell, cases, itncxplodcd
bombs, haversacks, heliuets, canteens
and even old rags are picked up and
sent down to the base to be utilized
in some form or another, At one
spol 50,000 old shoes were bring repaired when a war correspondent
visited it. The Upper part of an old
shoe is often converted into shoe
laces by an ingenious machine invented by an Irish .shoemaker. One
thousand five hundred French girls
arc employed al one salvage shop
convert ing overcoats picked up on
the fields.

Substitution of Fish to Save Meats
Is Recommended
The. campaign lo substitute fish to
save meats has been so successful
that fifteen additional refrigerator
cars are to bc used for transporting
Atlantic fish to central Camilla. Arrangements for the extra service were
made al> a special meeting between
the fish committee under the food
controller of Canada and representatives of thc railways and fish producers.
The new arrangements include increased service through special
trains, when necessary from the seaboard to interior points. The increased service will make possible a
much wider distribution of fish and
will insure the arrival of the fish at
their destinations hi good condition.
While substitution of fish for meats
is a comparatively new thing in Canada, made necessary by the imperative demand to conserve meats for
export to the Allies, its growth has
been remarkable, and the need for
stabilized market conditions in interior points that an adequate and steady
supply of fish might be depended upon, made the new irrar.gcmcnts Imperative.

Licensing of the Sugar Trade Is the
Next Step
The licensing of all manufacturers,
refiners and importers of sugar has
been officially determined upon by
President Wilson as thc next step in
the control of staple food commodities.
The critical situation in the sugar
markets, anticipated during the fall
months, makes prompt action necessary, and the proclamation of the
president will require the licensing,
by October 1, of "all persons, firms,
corporations and associations engaged in the business cither of importing
sugar, or manufacturing sugar from
sugar cane or beets, or of refining
sugar or of manufacturing sugar
syrups or molasses."
The issuance of liceusi s, llie promulgation of rules and regulations
for the. government of licensees, and
general control of the sugar industry
will rest with the food administration
and has been already generally dis
cussed and approved by the leading
men in tlie industry. General liccns
ing of thc industry will serve as a
slep toward lhc regulation of prices
by the prevention of speculation and
the securing of equitable distribution. The. sugar problem being one
of distribution as much as of supply,
the solution is to'be brought about
by voluntary agreements with the
trades, the essential principles of
which have been already settled.

.VER in the sodden trenches amid the bursting
shells and the roar of artillery where Canada's
boys are fighting and dying.
-���they are waiting for Canada's answer when the
sale ot Victory Bonds begins.
jP AN ADA'S soldiers expect that
^~/ we at homewill putup the'millions they need to keep on fighting,
���the millions they must have
to win Victory for freedom, home
and Canada.
What answer will Canada make?
What answer will you make?
Shall it be said that Canada
spares not her sons from the sacrifice of battle, yet withholds her
dollars to give them victory?
Rather will it be said that Canada once more, for the fourth
time in three years, cheerfully
puts up her millions upon millions
for the cause of freedom, righteousness and justice.
Canada's answer must be,
���that the Canadian hand to
the plow of Victory holds steadfast and firm.
���that Canada is in deadly earnest
when she says the "last man and
the last dollar."
That is the answer Canada will
give to our boys in the trenches,
our kinsmen in Britian, and our
Allies everywhere.
That is the answer we will give
to the Huns who thought and said
that Canada would desert the
Empire before she would fight or
Every bond you buy is an
answer. Let the millions of answers from Canada's loyal men
and women make a chorus of
Victory to ring around the world.

I think not.
