KITCHENER SPEAKS
AT GUILDHALL
London, Nov. 9.—Scenes of ex
traordinary enthusiasm were
witnessed at the Guildhall tonight
on the occasion of the inaugural
banquet of the new Lord Mayor
of London, Sir Charles Johnston,
who succeeds Sir Thomas V.
Bowater. Added interest attached
to the gathering* by reason of the
special circumstances of the times
and the presence of the principal
Ministers of the Crown responsible for the conduct of the war,
and the diplomatic representatives of the Allied nations,
The guests, who numbered a
thousand, and included the leading statesmen, diplomats and financiers, entered the civic headquarters of London between two
lines of khahki-clad riflemen. As
each dignitary entered the reception  hall he was greeted with
rounds of cheers, but the real
outbursts were reserved for Premier Asquith, Earl  Kitchener,
Winston Churchill, the Japanese,
Russian and French ambassadors,
the Belgian  Minister, and the
commander of the Canadian contingent.    As these entered the
hall, which was decorated with
the flags and coats of arms of the
Allied Nations, the enthusiasm
knew no bounds, the entire assembly rising to welcome them.
The military men, including Lord
Kitchener, wore service uniforms
of khaki; the ambassadors and
other diplomats were in the brilliant uniforms of their rank.
The formal toast the King and
the Royal Family having been
proposed, ex-Premier Arthur J.
Balfour proposed "The Allies."
He emphasized the fact that the
toast was without precedent, but
he added: "We are living in
times that are also without precedent, when the whole world is
either in arms or in anxious expectation."
Confidence in the ultimate success of the Allies' arms was expressed by Earl Kitchener, who
pointed out the great issue at
stake, the advantage possessed
by the Allies in men and material
and "in that wonderful spirit
which has never understood the
meaning of defeat." Lord Kitchener praised the Territorials, particularly the London Scottish and
the East Indians, and spoke of
the admiration of the British
troops for "the glorious French
army," and said:
"Under the direction of General Joffre, who is not only a
great military leader, but a great
man, we may confidently rely on
the ultimate success of the Allied
forces in the western theatre of
war." He praised the brilliant
leadership of Grand Duke Nicholas, and also the "splendid deeds
of the Belgian army," and the
gallantry of the Japanese force.
Continuing Lord Kitchener said:
' 'The British Empire is now fighting for its existence, and I want
every citizen to understand this
cardinal fact, for only with a clear
conception of the vast importance
of the issue at stake can come the
great natural moral impulse without which the government's war
minister, or even their navies,
can do but little.   I have no complaint to make whatever about
the response to my appeals for
men. The progress in the military
training pf those who already
have enlisted is most remarkable
and  the country may well be
proud of them; but I still want
more men, and still more, until
the enemy is crushed.    Armies
cannot be called together as with
the magician's wand, and in the
process of formation there may
have been discomforts and inconveniences in some cases—even
downright suffering.    I cannot
promise that these conditions will
wholly cease, but I can give you
every assurance that they have
greatly diminished.    The men
who have come forward must remember that they are enduring j
for their country's sake, just as
are their comrades in the shell

R. B. Bennett, Calgary's brilliant representative in the
*4ouse of Commons, in an address to his constituents on
'Patriotism," struck an imperial note that reflects the sent-
ments of the Canadian people toward the Empire.
" Without freedom there can be no patriotism," point-
•ng out the reason for the determined resistance of the Bel-
;ians to the great German'war machine. "The Belgians
allied their freedom too highly to permit the violation of
their country, and fought every inch of the ground in order

torn trenches. The introduction
of elaborate destructive machinery with which our enemies are
so amply and carefully supplied,
has been the subject of much
eulogy on the part of the military
critics, but it must he remembered
that in the matter of preparation
those who fix beforehand the date
of a war have a considerable advantage over their neighbors. So
far as we are concerned we are
clearly open to no similar suspicion. This development of armaments has modified the application of old principles of strategy
and tactics and reduced the present warfare to something approaching siege operations.
"Our losses in the trenches
have been severe, but such casualties have been far from deter
ring the British nation from seeing the matter through. They
will act rather as an incentive to
; British manhood to prepare them
selves to take the place of those
who have fallen.''
He concluded: "Although our
thoughts are constantly directed
toward the troops at the front
and the great tasks they have in
hand, it is well to remember that
-, the enemy will have to reckon
I with the forces of the great Do-
1 minions, the vanguards of which
; we already have welcomed in this
country in the very fine body of
men forming the contingents
1 from Canada and Newfoundland,
while from Australia, New Zealand and other parts are coming,
in quick succession, soldiers to
fight for the Imperial cause. And
besides all these, there are training in this country over 1,250,000
men, eagerly waiting for a call
to bear their part in the great
struggle. As each soldier takes
his ,place in the field he will
stand forward to do his duty,
and in doing that duty will maintain the duty of the British army,
which, I submit, has never stood
higher than it does to-day."
