Hodgson looked   like   a winner

Tho management of the Herald will publish a Daily
I Newspaper during the war, in order to supply its reading
public with authentic reports on the general European
situation. It is not our purpose to continue definately in
the daily field, but should we find that there is need of a
daily newspaper here, we will most assuredly supply the
| public with that need.
This being our first attempt we crave your indulgence.
It was the American Sherman of the Civil War of
186] -1864, who said " WAR IS HELL " and so it is-a
relic of the ages of savagery, when man fought for his
physical existence, but to add to it, or to retain it in this
age, when existence is so much more complex in its mental
strife for existence, in the survival of the fittest in the
wants of the world, is adding HELL in double measure.
And yet we have the four or five leading nations of the
European concert grappling at each others throats in the
bloody butchery of War, destroying lives and property in
a few days, weeks and months perhaps, that has taken
many years to construct and develop, at great financial
cost as well as mental and physical travail and effort.
The situation is complex in the extreme; Germany
seems with unanimous opinion of non-combatants to have
precipitated the trouble, in fact, she seems to be the blame-
able party to the present situation in all Europe. For years
spoiling for a fight ancl further aggression, she has during
the past fifteen or twenty years, on more than one occasion
nearly embroiled Europe in just such a struggle as is
promised in the despatches to hand.
It were well if in the coming struggle, the situation shall
be so cleared that for a generation at least there shall be
no more war, or fear of war, in the European arena.
To attain this result it would seem as if it were necessary
that Germany should come out of this struggle the defeated
nation ; Her pride shall then have gone before her fall
indeed, and it is recognized by many readers of the signs
of the times, that her people are not by any means a unit
in this seeking of power and prestige by the war party of
that nation. Germany we have long looked upon as the
most advanced in culture and the fine arts, of all the
European countries. Within her borders are men of all
the professions most advanced in learning in the Sciences,
Surgery, and Medicine War is not to their liking, and as
for the common people, the burden of armament and the
aggravating arrogance of the military has long been a
burning question that has more than once broken out in
unseemly strife among the people.
Whatever happens in the war zone we shall hope it -will
clear up the atmosphere and do away with the constant
mutterings and fears that has afflicted the business world
for so long.
Among the happy outcomes of the many questions of the
hour, we note with pleasure, that at home in England and
Ireland - friends and neighbors for the moment have forgotten their troubles and differences in the Irish question
and joined hands for the honor of the Empire, and in this we
may see the blowing away in fraternal feeling; this vexed
question ancl the saving of a situation that bid us look with
fear and trembling for bloodshed among brothers. Let us
hope that in the larger question of the European situation
this home matter may find its solution and death to strife
within the Empire.
Premier Borden to Tour
Western Canada During
September and October
With Hon. W.T.White
And Hon.LP. Pelletier
Arrangements Now Being Hade-Exact Itinerary Not Yet Decided Upon- Yukon
Trip is Abandoned
Ottawa. Ont, July 31.-Arrangements for a tour of Sir
Robert Borden in Western Canada are being made at the present time. While the itinerary
has not yet been mapped out, the
premier expects to leave Ottawa
about September 8 or 9, and to
return around October 22. He is
returning at that time in order
to bid farewell to the Duke of
Connaught and to welcome
Prince Alexander of Teck to
The present plan is for the
premier to be accompanied by
Hon. W. T. White and Hon. L.
P. Pelletier.    Mr. White intended to make a western trip last
year, bui owing to a pressure of
business was unable to do so.
He is thus planning to accom-
i pany the premier this fall ana in
[order, as the finance minister, to
j get at first h a n d,  v i e w s of
j Western  Canada.   U nil e r the
conditions, it is felt that there
should be a Quebec cabinet minister included in the party,   and
Mr. Pelletier   is the natural
choice.   There will likely be several private members accompany
the premier, though they have
not been selected.
Some of the western members
will also accompany the premier,
The time is short and the ministers would like to cover as
much country as possible.
It is probable that after a big
Winnipeg meeting the ministers
I will divide, the premier will go
■one   direction   and    Hon.    Mr.
I White will cover another itinerary.   The western ministers will
S divide,   some  going  with   the
prime minister and others with
Mr. White.
The exact itinerary will be arranged within the next couple of
1 weeks, but Sir Robert will speak
| at all the larger cities in the
.western provinces, including
I Winnipeg. Regina, Calgary, Ed-
i monton, Vancouver and Victoria.
Whether he goes to Prince Ru-
' pert is a matter of time, but the
: proposed Yukon trip has, of
course, had to be called off.
As soon as the Hindu question
is settled the premier will slip
