Hope of Ending Wars
Lies in the Hands of the Women—Influence Grows
Stronger  Every Decade—Real Sufferers
In Every Conflict
This Balkan conflict, babe of a
campaign as lt yet is, has nevertheless already poured out much wisdom
ln the ahupe of "lessons" tor those
wltb ears to bear. Some of tbem
are platitudes and some are not, but
both alike are valuable, and both
will be forgotten as soon as tbe occasion bas passed, writes "Linesman," in Tbe London Doily Mail.
For war is the very Cassandra ol
prophetesses. It Is ber fate to "enter raving," as Shakespeare brings
her ln, to shriek out warning to unbelieving ears, to fill "ten thousand
eyes witb prophetic tears," and "pay
betimes a moiety ot that mass of
moan to come;" to do all this and
then to be forgotten as a
summer storm. Nothing is s0 utterly unproductive, She does not e.en
engender experience, except trifling
details. Men learn how to improve
their rifles, tbelr marching boots and
water bottles, hut they learn eo lit
tie bow to do without their greatest
dread that tbey would seem not to
have learned to dread it at all, did
not a myriad of pale and startled
faces look up from every corner o
the earth at tbe sound of the distant trumpet.
For they have not even learned to
expect it, to recognize it—and thle is
one dt the platitudes—as inevitable
ae the return of its own "portent
blailng In the sky," the comet homing after Its enormous flight. The
last war is always tbe very last war,

called—of glass?
At any rate, how soon was lt shivered by the frosts ot the Crimea, by
the biasing rays of Hindustan, hy
the terrible concussion, of Gettysburg, Koniggratz and Sedan, hy the
heavy snows of Shipka Pass, by the
sheer weight of dead upon Mancunian hills, by a thousand combats, by
uncountable corpses, falling like ball
stones on Its silly panes from tba-
day to this.
Once grasp the inevitability of thc
periodic return of wnr, anil you have
gone fur towards preventing it; win-h
Is no more a paradox than to say
that It was the vory regularity oi
the return of pestilenco which, after
long ages, taught dull man first to
look out for it and then to forestall
and forbid It. Whether war is in
reality as harmful as the visitation
of a plague, or, as some maintain, as
healthy ns the rotation of crops, is,
however, an old debate. It might bc

Churchill's Naval Policy
Notable   Exposition   of the   Government's  Naval
Plans in the British Commons
Londou, Bng.—Right Hon. Wlmton
Churchill, first lord of tho admiralty
introduced in thc common., this evening tho estimates for tho navy. At
the outBet ho explained tho cauuOB for
increase ln expenditure. Kind, he
said, it was owing to the decision to
increase the number ol ships main
talned in full commit-mion in consequence of the nsw German navy law,
nnd to the decisions to increase the
numbers and notably tho pay ot the
perBOifnel. Secondly, It was duo to
to the increase n size and speed, armament, equipment and co.t of warships off all kinds. It was necessary
*o keep puce with similar vessels
buildings all over the world.   Third-
Germany, America and Italy, of
larger guns tor primary armament,
and of larger and moro numerous
guns for secondary armament, bas
necessitated a further advance by us.
The lncroaaed power and size of new
and more expenetve torpedoes has led
to an increase in tho numbor of torpedo tubes, witb a further Increase
in the supply ot torpedoes. Larger
ships and guns involve larger docks
and an increase in the scale of all appliances nnd shipyard machinery.
'•There is, I. fear, no prospect of
avoiding large and continuing increases in the naval estimates of future years, unless thc period of acute
be built, for any navy would your
naval interests or national security
he prejudiced in any conceivaUo way?
Wby should we all nor take a n.ival
holiday for _i year as far as now construction, or new construction of capital ships ls concerned?' That question I asked last year, tlmt proposal
I repeat this year. It Implies no
abandonment of any scheme of naval
organization or naval increase. It
Imposes no check upon the develop
ment of true naval etlleiency. The
finances of every country would obtain relief; no navy would sustain the
slightest Injury. This is no appeal
of weakness panting behind, which we
make, but of strength Btrldlng on in
Imperial Squadron to Patrol Waters of the Empire.
Turning to the proposed Canadian ships, Mr. Churchill said:
"While tbey will be directly controlled by tho admiralty, we proposed to form them with the Malay anl New Zealand ships into a new squadron of five ships of high uniform speed, to be called the
Imperial squadron. It will bo based at Gibraltar, and thence ab i to reach Halifax in five days, Quebec in six days, Jamaica in nine days, the Houth American coast in 12 days, cape town in 13 days,
Alexandria in 8 days, Sydney in 28 days, New Zealand in 32 days, Hong Kong in 22 days and Vancouver in 23 days. Our intention is tnat thla squadron shall, as opportunity serves, cruise freely
about th; empire, visiting tbe dominions, ready to operate at uny threatened point at home or
abroad. The dominions will be considered in ull movements not dominated by military coajidera-
tions. Special facilities will he given for Cmmdians, South Africans and New Zeal under*, to serve as
men or officers in this squtvd on. In this way the true idea will bo given of a mobile imperial squadron of the greatest strength and speed patrolling the empire, showing the flag and bringing effective
aid wherever needed.

Interrogated as to the situation at

It* views on the country and of trying to commit the Country to an expense ol 8150,000,000, an expense
whlcb the country could not stand at
thia Juncture,
"The attitude of the opposition ls
In'antlle," he said, "nnd one would
expect better from school children.
For two months the opposition had

did not hesitate to say tbat tbey

Taking up tho Liberal contention
that tho $35,000,000 was to ho snen'

wa* n probability ol nu olectlou, the
minister *ni.l:
"Sir WlWrld tells us tbnt when

Fifthly, from arrears in thipbu.lding
during tho last two years, arising
.rom the 'failure of tbe contractors to
earo their proper instal.i.eius as
manifested by deliveries In excution
in current program.
The estimates, be said, would bave
been substantially higher, but the
congestion in the shipyarda arising
out ol the extraordinary demands up-
,n the shipbuilders and especially lip-
,n tbe skilled labor supply. II better progress is to be made ln executing programs it would bo necessary
.or me to ask parliament later in tbe
/ear for further supplementary estimates,
"Tho navy la passing through a
period not merely ot expansion, but
of swift and ceaseless development.
The latest German navy law has Increased tbo number of vessels we require to construct eacb year, and
that law, and tbo Mediterranean requirements, have atill more Increased
the number und proportions ol ship!
which must be maiuta'ned in th;
highest condition ot readiness.
To man and maintain these resulting war fleets a continual large
increase in the number of olllcers and
men ol ull ranka nnd ratings ls required. The increase In size, cost and
speed of capital ships, compelled by
tho general development of naval
science and the types building
abroad, Ib marked and unceaslug.
Tbe increase In speed affects not only capital ships, but destroycrB, light
cruisers and submarines. Incrcnsu in
.peed involves immense increase in
horsepower. Tbe increased cost ol
fuel, particularly oil fuel, la serious,
and  shows   no   likelihood of linmed-
rivalry of rapid scientific expansion
through which we are passing, come*
to an end. Ot all the nations of the
world, we ate perhaps beat able to
bear such a strain If It should continue. We have greater accumulations of capital than are found elsewhere. Wo are free from the need
of maintaining an army of th? continental scale. Our fiscal expansions
of taxation to be made without the
cost of living to tbe masses of the
people, being directly affected. But
although we '.re not likely to be in

inouey, and altnougb the maintenance
if nayal security must always be regarded as a first charge on the resources of the British Empire, yet
the evil and the lnsenate folly of
what ls now taking place here and
all over tho world is bo patent to
the meanest intelligence that concerted effort to arrest it should surely
be tbe first olllcinl object.
"Thero is, happily, a way open and
j which wlll remain open, whereby the
I pooplco of tho world could obtain al-
I most instantaneous mitigation of tbe
| thralldom In which they are involv
ing themselves. Everything Is relative, Tho strength of one navy is its
strength compared with another. Tbe
value of a ship .Upends entirely upon
the contemporary ship it may have
to meet. Tbe usefulness of naval Invention ceases when it ls enjoyed by
othe powers. Yet we see the ship
types of every nnval power superseding those of the previous years.
With remorseless persistency Bcorca ol
millions nre being absolutely squandered, while every year all the navnl
powers nre making not only the
fleets ol their rivals, but their own
fleet, obsolete without adding to
tbeir relative strength or actual security. Could any process be more

of the great powers is the:  'If for

with more prolound sincerity than to
our great neighbor over the North

calm, friendly tone and tapper of the
recent German naval discussion*.
Great Britain and Germany have the
conviction that the desire of botb is
to prcscrvs peace."
j Mr. Ohurublll Uuu turned to British construction. He was glad to say
that nothing had happened during the
year to alter the numerical program
submitted ln 1912, giving six years
period to Britain's 25 dreadnoughts,
against Germany's 14. He said that
j two ships would bo added to this total for evory extra vessel luid down
by Germany. Additional to this
| would be any ships Britain might
jhave to build ln consequence of n?w
naval developments In tho Mediterranean, but no sucb developments nro
observable at tbo present timo. lie
emphasized the (act that tho Malay
| dreadnought and the throe ships now
under discussion in Canada would ulso be additional, that being tho spec
ihe condition upon which they arc to
bo given nnd accepted.
"These," added Mr. Churchill, "nre
the basis of a naval policy, which
cooly und inflexibly pursue.) .luring
the next few years, will, wo believe,
placo this country and the empire beyond the reach of purely naval pressure, and which need not, at any
stage of Its execution, be fomented
Into a cause of quarrel with our German neighbors.
"I will now examine throe subsi

some show of plausibility, be urged

rocks Instead of snowballs. One o£
the rocks bit Colonel Fred on the
head, and It was then that he Issued
to his white soldiers the famous command:

That "mass of moan"! How lt haH

floated down tho stream only a few
feet from the watchers at South Park

rolled into the business section a wall

"Yob, but a month. You Bay you

sound full nl rage and fury signifying nothing, but ln one respect most
purposeful, and thut Is in her denunciation of war, She, at least, witb
keener eye, has marked Its orbit,
and, with sight perhaps less penetrating, sees nothing but folly in its
its periodic reappearance. II ever
the red Btar shall be "shot Irom its
sphere," it will be her doing, lor
good or ill, not necessarily to repeat, for good.
It is not hard to trace the subtle
infection of womanishness which is
bringing nearly the whole world's
manhood to womanish points of view
on manly matters, especially to that
essentially womanly cul bono attitude before which war has always
trembled like a guilty thing surpris
ed. When women have stopped war,
and we believe that they will do so,
they will he "emancipated" indeed, for
th;y will have annihilated the only
Lhing tbat bars them from equality,
or, perhaps, superiority to the fighting men.
This present war already bears
their imprest. The grout cry which
has gone up from all the Western nations, Is, Btripped o** Its cant, not a
cry of reprehension, but of sheer timidity, of sheer feminine dread of damage, of interruption to comfort, business and waxing fat.
Wbat a larce are these jeremiads
by people armed to tho teeth aud
rattling the sabre at every trifling
opposition to their will! It they
have not learned to avert it.. Meanwhile tbeir shrill expostulations with
tbe breakers of the peace, their nervous chatter among themselves, is
drowned ln a deeper, and, to him,
who "saith hai hai amongst the
trumpets," a nobler sound. Around
Adrlanople rises again the great diapason which has sung over so mnny
stricken fields. The Turk, aroused
trom his lethargy, has thrown down
his pipe, and rushes at last Into the
arena over the door ol which is writ-

THERE will be twelve cash prizes in
each of the nine provinces (1 OK in all)
in the 1912 Prize Contest for Canadian
Farmers. The 1911 Contest was so successful in awakening interest in the use of Concrete on the farm, that a
second contest, in which three times as many prize., are
offered, was decided upon for this year.
The Contest this year i* divided into three classes, "A,"
"B" and "(',*' and there will he four prices iu each class,  f First
prize, $50; Second |>rir.c, f 25;Third prise, SI 5; Fourth prize, It0.1
Thus there are three $50 Prizes, three $2$ Prize., three MS
prizes, and three $10 Prizes, for each province.

Don't think that you must use a large quantity of cement In order In

When you enter the Contest, yuu have a chanee to win a cash
prize of J*ifl as w*ll at the certainty that you will add a fitrmanent
improvement to your farm. If you haven't a copy, he sure and ask for

Naturally, the thrillers that most eatenslvely win
the abaorbed attention of women today aro thoso
which stir all the depthe of their sensibilities, from
love and passion to fear and heroism; but there Is
scarcely a professional thriller whose range Is so extensive. In all, some one note Is dominant. Chambers
most artfully touches the chord of lovo, yet he excels
In scenes of anger; Oppenhelm ls strong for mystery
and adventure, but he seldom falls to furnish a thrilling love motive: Rex Beach Is able to combine both
so that they are Inseparable; Harold McOrath Is all
adventure and, at tho samo time, nearly all love; Miss
Porter Is one ot tho few who depend almost wholly on
tho fascination ot sentiment to enthrall their readers,
and so here are stories which almost exclusively are
read by women. .,
