Greatest Hero   May   Be  The
Man Who Shudders the
Most at First
Man knows so little of his own
heart, says a writer in the Spectator,
that he is scarcely more competent
than one of his friends to say what
his feelings will be in circumstances
which h" has not yet experienced.
Courage is an attribute of the heart,
und therefore men often examine
theiuselver closely, but in vain, as to
what their conduct will be in the
pinch if mortal danger. Uf all mis
takes   that   ale   made   m   tbe.-e     nitt'o
spections the greatest, and perhaps
the inort common, is te' mistrust or
blame oneself ..a th" discovery that
great courage is naturally wanting.
To he able to date everything be
cause nothing is [eared is—so far as
merit goes—to be classed with, the
ferocious leasts. The civilized man
who   Bays   he    does     Hot     know      fear
would probably be a dull and unsympathetic companion even if be
were not a liar. It mutters, little to
any oue but the man himself what a
man's feelings ate in a supreme test;
be will be judged by his conduct.
People sometimes propose Imaginary
tests for themselves in order tbat
they may not shrink from the real
situation when it conies, hut may recognize it as no worse, if no better,
than something upon which their
mind has already dwelt. Hut these
self-examinations may easily become
n kind of rnorb d seif-consciousness,
and are ali necessarily bused on the
generally misleading   idea that hero-

ism must be a i iial quality. Tha
greatest hero may be the man who
fears most. Certainly if two men, one
naturally timid und the other naturally hold, performed equally brave
services,, the timid inuu would be the
greater hero. In the South African
war a profoundly wise snub und n.
wholesome criticism were received by
a subaltern from his colonel after un
engagement, "Well, how did you get
on?" the colonel asked. Thc subaltern
who had just been under lire, and a
rather hot lire, for tbe lirst tune,'and
was conscious ot having borne him-
seif.well, said with eluborute modesty: "1 didn't know that I was such a
iiink hefore, sir. 1 didn't liks it at
all at hist. Hut afterwards l felt—"
Here the colonel interrupted him Impatiently with: "Who cues a damn
what >oii felt ' 1 want to know whut
you  did'"
If   it   be  true—nnd   whut    cou'ld     he
more  true?—that   foolhardiness    often

unprofitable to try to assess the
quality of men's motives in uction.
l'rave soldiers Who have led inemor-
eiih' charges have been known to say
that they rushed on in order to end
tne danger as soon ns possible, The
Romans understood the subtlety ot
what is in any case rightly culled
courage,     Audendo   magnus   regitur
tnnor was said in effect by several
writers. And the French have a similar proverb that courage is often an
elect of fear, Bravude may rear itself on terror, just as effrontery
sometim:s proceeds from shyness.
Temperament piays queer tricks with
humanity. There ate women who will
ride vicious horses, but are afraid
to cross a London street. A vsry
curious story of the workings of an
inherited temperament used to be
told about a member 0f one of the
irregular corps in the South African
war. His discomfiture under lire was
so great thnt he scarcely had control over his behavior. It amounted
lo an acute nervous disease. He was
a good fellow who desired to do himself and his corps credit, and'when it
was recognized that he could not held
liims'lf he was employed whenever
■possible witb the camp guard or on
similar duties. When the corps
i • ached one of the large towns this
nan. who had been tormented for
weeks hy a raging toothache, visited
a dentist. The dentist informed him
ihat so many teeth must be pulled
nut ihat he must virtually undergo a
small operation, and proposed that
an appointment should be made with
an anaesthetist for another day. The
"scallywag" replied that he did not
wish to wait and did e.i care
the anaesthetic, and, In Bne, told the
dentist te. "L-e. ah.'at." Accordingly
t'a dentist went ahead, an.l

of tbe quickest apprehension and the
highest power of imagination would
be the greatest' co wards, Hut this is
r.ot so. To the glorious credit of
civilization, the same cultivated senses which feed the recognition ot
danger exalt tbe will to make any
sacritice of self to noble ends. The
bodily system is capable of endleBs
adaptations und compentations. II
an invention is thrust upon the world
that is to make W'ar too horrible to
be tolerated any more, the human
brain devises a method ot protection;
or if it cannot do that, it reconciles
itself culmly to the prospect of a
higher mortality than was ever
known before. What, after all, can be
done with the human body worse than
to destroy it? It should not be expected that man will cringe nnd cower.' It he cun coiitcnipletc u mortal
danger for several! days or weeks, and
then curry out the orders jot hy jot
as they were planned, he is capable
of anything. And this test is regular
ly imposed on our soldiers und sailors
in this war, in which' battles run into weeks instead of hours, Fear, as
we all know, is increased by hesitation but fate has brought it ahout
that the highest exactions ever made
on courage should be required when
hesitation or delay is Implicit in the
conditions of the warfare, No doubt,
a long delay must allect the morale
of utiy troops in the world. It wou'ld
be a miracle if troops who have dug
themselves in and stayed in trenches
[or several months should be able to
advance across the open with nil their
former dash when the time comes to
move. Will our splendid soldiers be
equal even to this'' If so, we shall
have to say that such troops were
never hefore seen. They will do whut
we venture to sav the Gerniuns, for
all their admitted bravery, would not
be uble to do. It. is u common observation among officers that troops
who lie down even for a temporary
delay or rest under fire cann.it be pe:1
BUaded to advance again so easily as
.at the beginning.

The Italian sporting paper II Cac-

jesome interesting notes on the position of the dog in the French ,.army,
Irom which the following are taken:

Itcen given this name because pf his

In', 1841) Ala, a bitch attached to the
Chasseurs d'Afrlque, won great renown. This famous regiment used at

Another bitch distinguished, herself
in North Africa by leading a regiment

vigilance a Russian attack on the
French trenches iu the Crimea. Tutu,
the dog of the Third Zouaves, wbo
had also been through an African
campaign, went, also through the
Italian campaign, where he had been
taken by the soldiers, who \rere
greatly attached to him, in deuauce
of the mostj rigorous orders, inside a
big drum. During this war he unmasked an Austrian spy who had put
j on a Zouave's uniform and -at 1'aleatro
he was the ■ lirst to swim across the
canal, followed by the soldiers; he
wus also present at the famoUB con-

Magenta  was  another  famous      dog

In 1905 Toboc, tbe dog of the 4th

fell into tho hands of the municipal
dog catcher. The soldiers collected
among themselves the amount necessity to release him, and, as there
waa a balance of 10 francs, opened an
account in his name in the savings
bunk. Unfortunately, Tobey died soon
afterward, and, as there was aeither
will nor relatives, the Id francs were
annexed by the government. In the
canine cemetery nt Asnieres a well-
kept tombstone testifies to the affection' in which the French soldiers
hold their dogs. The inscription runs
as follows: "Pompon, 18% to 1^99,

at Chalons. This tombstone has been
il< frayed by' a collection among artillerymen.  Long live the army."
There is mi doubt, that when the

The eye-witness present with General Headquarters sends the following
descriptive account of a. battle as seen
at a divisional headquarters:
The chain of command which links
up the troops in the Bring -ine with
tbe general headquarters hus already
been described generally; but a short
account of how the system worKs during an action, and how the lighting
is controlled by the superior commanders mny assist to a comprehension of the conduct of the recent operations  at  Neuve  Chapelle.
i As has already heen pointed out,
it is now-a-days impossible for any
one man to have.a general survey of
a battle, except perhaps ot a small
action in favorable country offering
an exceptionally extended view, and
even in that case it would be impossible for him to guin any accurate
idea of what was going on. For intelligence of the actual progress of the
lighting, therefore, the higher com-
manders are entirely dependent upon
telejihiine or motor despatch riders.
Though by this means a buttle can be
followed only mentally, a fairly accurate conception of its course     can
I be obtained     from     tbe    continuous
j stream of messuges coming     in from
I thc front.
During  the actual  lighting the bri-
I gade comnvinders will probably be
ensconced  in     dug-outs,     cellars, or
! sandbag shelters within a few hundred yards of the firing line. Communication from     them     forward to

I telephone or orderly, and the     tele-
' phone  will  also connect  them      with
the divisional  headquarters      in  rear
through which i information is passed
on to corps and  army  headquarters.
The only way in which tbe commander of any  unit, be  it  battalion.,    brigade, division,     or     army corps can
actively    influence   a   battle     is     by
throwing     into the light a body     of
fresh troops which have not been eni
ployed,  and  he has    for this  purpose
in every case a portion    of his   force
rvo  at his  own   disposal,      for
use as may  bc required.
His power of control   is especially

A description of thc scene presented by a divisional headquarters during an action will perhaps convey
some impression of the aspect in
which it presents itself to a divisional general, and of the manner in
which it is controlled from chat
point. The headquarters are situuted
in a large square farmhouse, close to
a high road not much more than a
mile from the battle line. Leading up
to the house are many wires. Outside it is a collection of motor cycles
with their riders, waiting to carry
messages. Every now and again a
cyclist starts oft.with a despatch, or
a fresh one dashes up.

passes an almost continuous Btream
of wounded men, some slightly wound
ed, with bandaged heads or hands,
on foot, others in motor or horse
ambulances. More cheering is the
sight of thc little groups of prisoners, which from time to time pass
in the same direction. Sliding quietly along in thc contrary direction
came the entjity ambulances full of
stretchers, the bearers seated inside,
most of them swaying to. and fro,
fast asleep, for they have been working night nnd day.
I At the roadside is drawn up a
long lino of ammunition wagons, and
further down is a collection of transports of all kinds. In the fields and
enclosures ure more ammunition
waggons, with rows of horses picketed along-side. The din of battle has
heen so often described that it need
not be done again. But it is at this
point specially overwhelming, because this is the region of our artillery positions, and the roar of our
guns close ull round is mingted with
thc sound of the explosion of the
hhclis fired at them. The air is pul-
sitting with sound.
Importance of Maps.
Inside the house everything seems
to depend on maps. In one room,
seated at a collection of tables, are
officers of the operations branch of
the divisional stall, bending over
large maps, on which they record
every change of position of the tcoops
as soon as it is reported, and pass
the Information back to corps headquarters. As the reports from the
front come in one by one, the whole
struggle heing enacted a mile or two
away is made partially clear.
N,ow a message tells of a battalion
Checked in front of one of thc enemy's
trenches by barbed-wire and machine-
guns—which meuns heavy losses. Perhaps the next is to the effect that
some brigadier has sent his lust reserves forward to work round the
flank of the enemy holding a certain
position. A third may notify the capture ot prisoners, of signs of demoralization shown bv the enemy in
a certain quarter of the held, of our
troops being in hot pursuit. A little
later another announoes the capture
Of a hostile trench by a bomb party,
and of its conversion for the use ol
our side.
There is a lull for a short space.
tlie cannonade dies down and becomes fitfuli and in the comparative
stillness can be beard tbe distant fire
of  title  and  machine-guns,  Then   flud-
i ib niy our artillery begins   to    speak
afresh, and a message comes through:
'The enemy are massing for a counter-attack.' Louder and louder swells
the volume of sound as the tire of one
battery after another is directed on
to the target oliered, and thc throb
of the Maxims grows more insistent.
For those who cannot see what is going on, there is now a period of suspense, until the next report states
laconically that the counter.attack
has been repulsed. To picture what
has happened ut the scene of action
between the receipt of the two messages demands  little  imagination.
The day wears on and the night
comes. Throughout the hours of darkness Hares go up into the sky i ver
the battle-field and the beams of
seari'lilibbts occasionally wander
across, lighting up in their chilly
radiance the battered parpets, the
dark patches of blood, the still forms
of tho dead lying among thc ruins
nnd debris, or half immersed in the
water which tills trenches, ditchea and
shell craters,,
Near at hand the darkness is plerc
ed by the flashes of ritles, while far
away   to  the front  and on  the    Hanks
tbo discharge of the guns are re
fleeted In the s'<y like the play of
Bummer lightning. Although there is
no cessation of lighting at night, it
becomes possible to communicate
more freely with the fighting troops,
to discover the exact situation and
make plans for the following day.
Wild Rumors,
Such are the conditions by day and
night in which a divisional commander and his stafl have to think and
construct their plans and to act.
The distracting influences are many,
for above all does the atmosphere of
a battle breed wild rumours. They
are brought by tbe wounded, by tired
overwrought men from the trenches
who have just been relieved, and by
otbers who have not been in the
fighting, but have been affected by
what they have seen.

Qomfldence iu the return of the Con-
servative party at the next federal
ami provincial elections, whenever
.held, and belief in the right of the
government to hold a federal election nt the present time, were voiced
by O.H. Barnard, M.I'., and a". i«\
Green, .M.I'., at a meeting of members of the. Ward Five Conservative
association, held last Thursday. The
gathering was railed for the. i purpose
■of natiiiiiL' the delegates recently appointed to represent the ward at the
nomination convention for the pro
viui'i.'ii bouse, .is delegates to i ted
■eral convention, the prospect ol an
•early Dominion contest ma'.'ing it
advisable to have tbo matter settled
it inice.
Hoth Mr. Barnard and Mr. Green
were enthusiastically received. Both
outlined the course of affairs during
the imst session at Ottawa and were
loudly applauded when they compared]
■the action of the Cons.-rvutive government in promptly voting millions
wherewith to send the best blood ol
the count ry to the aid of the Motherland In the present war, with that of
the Liberal government at the time
of the South African war, when only
the determined expression of pulilic
opinion forced the sending of Cans
dians to the battle line, an.l even
then Canada allowed the Motherland
i.e fool  the bill.
Mr. Barnard   was   unable   to state
when        or        how Me mi        an
election would I e held but
he had uo doubt as t.i
the result. British Columbia would
return every member. Dealing with
tin protests .f the Liberals against
nn early election, he declared that if
till■!'.'   is to  be  one the   Liberals      will
onh have themselves to blame. The
criticisms now being directed against
■thr government would be the opposl
tion's chief ammunition whither an
election be hold now or a year [rom

iniide much   of   the truce    Which was

Sir  Richard  McBride     in    con n   '
with the purchase of the submarin is.
The  Liberals  of Victoria sent detectives to Seattle in an effort to     bnd
i ut something   <1 trimental   to    Sir
Richard,  but without result. They insinuated  that  Sir  Richard  had     run
away  rather  than  face  an inquiry    at
Ottawa, though they well knew   that
Sir   Richnrd   was on  his  way to     i't-
t.iv.'a,  and  laid .Mr.   Pugsley  really  desired  his presenoe he could verj   .:,.-
ily hive secured  it.   Me. Pugsley ■ new
that   the  people  of  British   Col
were convinced of tb.- necessity     uud
timeliness  of  th'  purchase     of      the
submarines and anyone     who     knew
sir   Richard  knew  that he     was    the
last man to  run away  from  any      investigation     Into  his conduct.      The

in administering our laws; sometimes
j in the attompt  to adjust a law     to
j peculiar circumstances,  a case  will go
from one court  to another  until     it
reaches the  House of  Lords.  Thut   il-
iustrates the difficulty in applying
i uiiest ic law all the trouble und expense arc due to the variation ol
conditions, Now, in thi'1 case of international law, the matter is even
more complicated, I cause there is
no generally recognized code ot law
and there is no machinery for adapting it to circumstances or administering it. Iu effect, each nation has its
own law of naval warfare, as well, as
us own court, but there are certain
fundamentals which have met with
general agreement.
The Declaration of Paris, to which
Groat Britain, Prance, Austria, Russia, Prussia, Sardinia, aud Turkey
were parties, embodies certain generally accepted doctrines, lt laid down
tlie following  principles:
1. Privateering is and remains
2. Thc neutral Hag covers enemy's
goods, with the exception ot contra-
1 anil Of  war.
3. Neutral goods, with the excep
tion  of contraband  of wur,  are     not
! liable to capture under    an     enemy's
, "ag.
4. Blockades, in order to be binding,  must be eflective;  that is to say
I maintained by a force sufficient really
to prevent access to the coast ot the

America's Theory and Practice.
what happened after the adoption
of this declaration? In 1868 the American Congress passed an act empowering the president, during three'
years, to-issue letters of mai'iiue—in
other words, to authorize piracy, 'lhe
I resident also declared a blockade
against the southern States, although,
lhe did not jiossess ut the time the.
feircc to make it eflective. Again, during the Spanish An einan war, when
there was no properly advertise.I
blockade, the penalties of blockade
running were exacted, at our expense
—i.e., tin  case of the 'Adula.'
Now. in the present war, Gennauy
is paying no attention to the second

What happens'.' The American government wakes up and makes what
presumably is intended aa a protest. Thirty yeai's ago if Germany had
acted against the  United Stutes     as
Germany  has acted     against a'U neutrals, the American government would j
have acted sharply     and     decisively.
We who live in the British Isles have
not the slightest desire to see Americans  drawn  into  war  with  Germany;
but  toduy  by  their    failure to intervene, even diplomatically, the Americans and other neutrals are permitting th'J enemy   to   establish a precedent of  piracey  which  may  change   the
character of all future naval wars, t0
the injury of every  nation.
•    Whut  Wc  Could   Do.
It seems to be forgotten that what
Germany   is doing      in her'  'military
area'  very Ineffectively, we could    do
in the North Sea effectively. We could
confine     British    traffic   to     certain
unites  along our own  shore and   declare the rest, of thc North  Sea a war
area,  iii  which we, like the   Germans,
would  operate  suhiiuu ines    anil      lay
mines.  If we had no regard for     the
dictates of humanity and did not cai'e
tor the good opinion of the polite nations,  we cou'ld soon absolutely   close
the  North  Sea to all shipping, and if
neutral  shipping     suffered,  we could,
like Germany,  say,   'We  are  not responsible;  you should  not come     into
the war area.'
When the war opened we had 96 sub-
iiarines built and building, und
France hud 1)3. Germany has about
36. In combination the British .and
1'tench underwater vessels could render the North Sea so dangerous that
not a merchant vessel would dare to
approach the shores of Northern
Kurope.  We are not     adopting     this
form of reprisal;  we aie not threaten-
ing to sink a single ship; we are   not
proposing to confiscate any goods in
neutral ships—even those owned by
tiermans—unless they be contraband;
wc are not assassinating innocent
merchant sailors. We and our allies
merely declare that no ships, by direct or indirect route, shall take anything to Germany or bring anything
awaj from Germany. This is the
position, and it is suggested that we
arc not behuving well!
Th ily alternative to the order-in,
council is a 'blockade' after the style
Invented by the Crcrmnns; with this
difference, that we could carry on such
piratical operations with five or six
submarines to every one possessed by
'he enemy. Thut is the dilemma in
which neutrals are placed; one or the
other form ..f 'blockade' there must
■id if they prefer the German
:::-• perhaps the allies might so far
i.nbend their own moral attitude as
iccommodate them.

Tha following letter dated irom
Napier Barracks, Shornclifle, Kent,
April jl, has been received from Hart
Deal Sister,— Uo you I.now what it,
is to be busy without working hard?
Well, thai is how 1 am situated these
days, Vou will remember that 1 told
you in my last Letter that half ol the
Revelstoke boys wer,' in quarantine
with  measles.  Sine; that the disease
I which is luckily a very mild type
has spread t" several other huts and
ou Saturday last it, was decided to
put the whole battalion in quarantine for nine days. Previous to this,
1 had been put in charge of the
transportation end of the quartei
master's department and it was my
duty tu visit the Shornclifle depot
daily in search of goods and then go
out and commandeer a team or a
number of them if necessary to move
tho goods to the camp. As there are
many things which a large body of
men cannot do without for any length
of time, ii was found necessary to
give   ne :  permanent quarantine pubs
. (good at all hours) in order to look
after the stuff and to enable me to
m.Ii. purchases of other articles in
Folkestone. It w.as quite amusing to
sec the Led Capes or military policemen chase me around for the first day
or t wo for of o mrse ■ v.-ry one of
tlu in   wason  the lookout  for  fellows
! from the quarantined camp and, unluckily for some of our fellows, the
new scurlet shoulder badges which we
have a monopoly of, arc quite easily
seen. The flrst day the order was In
effect I met a number ot our fellows
down town dressed in Hussars uniforms and in fact nearly everything
but their own, but     since the police
'force has been doubled and one fellow
caught dawn town with his shoulder
1 idges cut of! aud those of the 23rd
substituted there is not so muoh of
it. There arc a few more cases break
ing out every day so there is no telling when the quarantine will be lifted.
Today we were given a half holiday
antl a foot ball league started between the various platoons In the
: il t lion, while there were several
11 games in progress at thi
same time on different parts of our
' Ig parade grounds. The boys are
working harder than ever, night and
day and 1 u't-.in won.ler how they feel
like a trip to town after thetr days
vork is over, 1 think it in pretty
well decided to send both thc 30th
i l Ird to the front lnt ict, which
will he uiiic'i nicer than going a hundred or so at a time to fill gaps in
other i i      I   was over to see   a
couple of the Revelstoke boys from
the first contingent (Dave Gray and
this evening and had iitiite a
talk with them. Dave has been pretty
>-ick. but is all right now and ex-
: n the rest of his bunch In

contingent. I met a fellow in a -book
store dow'ii town yesterday who bad
just arrived on tbe Metagama along
with 700 hundred army medicatl corps
and army service corps from Winnipeg. I knew as soon as be opened his
mouth that he was a lish eater and he
seemed ijuite surprised when I told
him he was from Nova Scotia. His
name was Patterson and hailed from
Richmond County. He knew Whyco-
comagh very well and told me that
one of the Campbell boys from home
was coming in the next bunch irom
Winnipeg. With the exception of a
I few airshiji raids things seem to be
going rather slowly at tho front. I
expect by the time you get this that
Italy will be in the war in which cuhc
il will not last as long as wc expected. I rather think thnt it will be
ever before the year is up and if not.
then nnd tbe Germans get their c.'ops
harvested and wo do not get througb
tho Dardanelles, it is likely to last
through another winter, in which
case, we shall nil get a chance to get
