WARS AND HOW LONG
THEY HAVE CONTINUED
How long will the war Wist? Here
pre a lew precedents:
The twn most recent "Central European" wars wore settled Ln an am-
auing short time. In 1866 Prussia
and Austria went at each other's
Ihroatsover the Juicy Schleswlg-Hol
Bteln bone—to which neither ol them,
bj the way, had any right. Thai war
lasted only soven wpeks, and it ended
in   Prussia   giving   Austria   a   terrible
and humlliat Ing beating,
Prance and  Sardinia also give  Aus
trlii a crushing defeat ln 1859 In a
war In which thc general lighting
laBted less than a month. This list
rjoes does not Include Italy's earltoi
and teeblei Btruggle for liberty, ag-
ilnsl   Vustrla, as In  IS48-' 19, etc.
In July IS70, FrailCO anil Prussia
went to war. Thc general lighting In

also comparatively  brief.
In   the   l'nited   States  history   here
is—roughly—the duration  of  the  im
I ml .tin   wars.
Revolutionary war, eight years; war
of 1812, two years and eleven weeks;
Mexican war, two years and eleven
weeks; civil war, four years; Spanish
war. seven and a half months (with
the hulk of the Bghting done In two
i and a half.)
All but one of the foregoing were
duels between two nations. The last
general European war was the Grim-
lean, when England, France, Turkey,
and Sardinia combined against Russia, from IS5I to 1956. Thnt war
Continued for about two years and
resulted in a sound thrashing for
Russia.
Before that the Napoleonic wars intermittently brought every tuition in
Europe to the battlefield. These wars
i out limed, with breaks of lonp or

"in view of the extraordinary con-
iliI inns which confront the people ol

"I am induced to take this attitude," said Mr. Bowser, "mainly for
the reason that it is absolutely vital
to the well being of the people during the period of trial which is ahead
of us, that they should not bc tempted to scatter their savings about in a
reckless fashion. On thc contrary, everyone who can exercise any influence
at this time is, 1 think, under u solium obligation   to encourage thrift,

"1 know, as well as anybody, that
there are many people who, for the

have always ready cash, there is little harm in the practice, from their

Which  would   result would noon  heap

South  and    Central  Africa,    the nat
ivcs   would       break   loose     and   chaos
would reign.,   All  these things might
seem n long  way  from us lint   their el
feci   would be  terrible.   People might
argue that if    Great    Britain     wore
I ii.,iien,    Germany could succeed    to

III ll |sh   Empire   is   an   absolutely   free

We  arc  Bghting  today  not   only  for
ourselves or  for  Belgium.   Noi   only
for the honor which we hold nioHt
dear or mir plighted word. We aro
Bghting for the millions upon millions of men whom we have freed
from slavery, turned Into men and
called to school.     Germany with   all
her progress and culture has no conception of government  of her colonies
except  by an I men.   Her long war
against the Herreros ia significant of
the want of experience in colonization. The Uritish race may not be
0 success m many things, hut undoubtedly it is an extraordinary success at colonization and spreading
freedom over the world.
Bolt is to guard that freedom and
to  Bacrifice,   if      called     upon,      their

SOCIALISTS   Kl.ni'K   TO   Counts.
The "war boycott."  that tlie Socialists of Europe were going to doolare
iu  the  event   of  internal ional  conllict
hasn't,    materialized,   For years   we
have been told, and some of ps may
have believed it, thai, the Socialists
oi   France   would   never  lake  up  arms
against their ■ brothers" of Germany
and that tho Socialists across the
Rhine felt the same way. War was
to  be stopped  by a   gigantic strike  of
the lighting men. lt sounded interesting, but the sight of Frenchmen
and Germans docking to the colors is
an action that, speaks more loudly
than words. Now hei e conies Mr. It,

English Socialists, declaring that,

ono,   Boston Transcript,
YIELD Not to PANIC
The  man   who  lakes   lo  the  Cyclone
cellar as soon as there is an unexpected change in commercial condi •
tions  is   not   lining   his duty   to      lhe
empire,   The man     who decides     he
should hide his cash ill a bole in the
wall and dismiss his employees and
pull down Un- shutters is an unpatriotic iii in and is stabbing tbe empire.
The man who talks blue ruin and does
business on the blue ruin plan is unworthy of a place in a rising city like
Ibis. The patriot who does not yield
readily to panic and who does his
part to keep the Hag Hying at home
is doing service for the empire. And
his part, just now is to go upon his
work seriously and without undue
alarm.—Calgary Albertan,
BOYCOTT GERMANY.
What is the duty of Canadian business men who have bought goods
irom Germany and Austria, which
have not been paid for. II seems to
us that their duty is plain. They
should not send their money to their
country's enemies. Tlie war which
I he tun Herman empires is waging is
a war of brigands fliey have stolen
municipal funds and pillaged the
hanks, to say nothing of the private
bouses, in all the territory through
which they have passed. They do n'.)t
respect the private property of their
enemies, Why should we respect the
rights of their subjects? All the money due to Bllbjects Of the brigands hy
subjects of the allied countries should
be handed   over  t.i   the   government  of
th.-ii  own countries to     be expended
■   them as they see tit. —La Patrie.

Winnipeg Telegram:   The present is
a   tune  for   boldness  and   courage    uh
well as of carefulness and caution.
Prudence there ought to be, but not
timidity. Timidity begets tear, and
bar  spells   failure.    In   tlie   inevitable
disruption of     international  finance,
which followed the outbreak of war,
there was a temporary unsettling, Affairs had to be made to adjust themselves to the new conditions. Thc
recovery has been more rapid than
Ihe most optimistic had hoped for,
thanks to the skill and prowess of the
British navy, which has speedily
, swept  the seas of  the enemy  and Kiv-
en assurance of safety to foreign ship-
ping, There will be still further readjustment,   Manufacturers    in some
lines      will   And  an   increased   demand
owing to tbe restrictions imposed hy
war upon the manufacturers of other
countries.   The cotton  mills   of     thc '
Dominion  have already  felt the elfect. |
They  are  running  full  tunc,   with    all
iandfl  employed,  and   new   hands    are I
being taken on to cope with  the    in- I
creased   orders that  are  Sowing     in
owing  to the     Btoppage of  supplies
from  abroad.    Time  will   bring  similar  good  fortune  to     other   lines    of
manufacture.
The wideawake, alert Canadian business mall at this time will assume an
attitude of expectancy. While observing Intelligent caution he will pro-
c 1 as if no critical situation existed, the while quietly adapting him-
self to the changing conditions so as
to reap his full share of the good
things      that are to come      with the
termination of hostilities,   it will be |
well  io remember that "opportunity
has a  head  full  of  hair  in   front,   but
bald  behind."

Canadian Farm: Some old-timers
in Ontario will remember the Crimean war, which before it closed sent
thc price of wheat up to $2 a bushel.
These were halcyon days for the grain
grower, Canada, however, did not
figure   large as a   grain   exporter      in
those days. Conditions are different
today. Western Canada has come into  lhe  limelight  since  Crimean  days,
and should the present war develop
in the direction which it seems to be
tending, the western farmer will
more than make up in price for any
crop shortage. One satisfactory thing
about it is that the war has come along soon enough to enable the farmer
to gel the increased value and not

U in says the Skeena Crossing Ohal-

H.-r- in British Columbia the question isa much more serious one than
in ino-ii other countries, for the reason that far the greater portion ot
tlie province is still in a totally undeveloped condition, and without.
mining activity it. will be next to'im-
possible lo ever develop and settle
t In- land. For Instance, In the Skeena
district the existence of an netivo
mining cump will provide tne settler
wiih a local market for his produce,
ami will encourage other settlers to
lake  a hand   iu  subduing  the  wilder •
nese in the service of mankind, with-
i ui mining activity how is the set
i ler going to make a living. The
condition of the great mining Indus-
trj is consequently a most important
matter to this province from the
point of view of the settlement of the
country, but an oven more serious
i'"inl   of  view  exists.

that Mother Nature has so bountifully giveeo us. to justify our existence
in this land and show the world that

old pioneers who paved the way for

"Then, again, in the summer people do not work

they have more time for reading it in logical to Btate
that they have more time for reading advertising.
