Militarism  Must Cease   Says
Rev.  Lashley   Hail- Colleague of Stead
Speaking in the Methodist church
at last Sunday evening service, Rev.
Lashley Hall touched on some issues
behind the hundred years of peaces—
pbasos oi the situation as important
today as over. As guiding principle
the text was Isa. 32,  17.
Pausing over historical references,
the outstanding feature of the Treaty
of Ghent—and subsequent agreement
aa to the Grent Lakes—was that it
mads it possible for two nations to
live side by side for. 100 years without recourse to hostilities. This was
not to say thcre hud not been serious difficulties. But for the disposition en both sides to do the fair
thing, give and take, make concessions, there would have been a different story. Reference was made to
tbe Alabama ipiestion and ex-president Taft's recent  words in Toronto.
In Great Britain it was recognised
that armed condict with thc United
State* was to be put out of our
scheme of thinking. It was one ot
the objects in founding the Rev'iew
of Reviews and thc institution of the
Society of'Helpers by tbe lute W.T.
Stead drawing the two countries
closer together so as to briug a! out
the ultimate reunion of the English
speaking world. He and his coadjutors had labored to pave the way
(or the Hague conferences in which
the speaker claimed to have taken
a humble part during the past quarter century; having been Mr. Stead's
accredited Helper for British Columbia and correspondent. (Mr. Stead's
autograph message was shewn at
the back of a card containing the
motto, "The Union of All who Love
in the Service of All  who Suffer."
Efforts were made, to promote good
feeling among the nations an entente cordiale all round, which the
late K'ing Edward did so much to
forward. The Hague conventions provided machinery for the settlement of
difficulties by conciliation and
courts uf arbitration. It was the
action of the United States in a
matter of substantial importance
which g:>ve international significance
to the Hague Tribunal, when some
nations were making light of it.
Nations however would not submit
questions of national honor and. interest to outside arbitration. To
meet this difficulty the Hague con-
vintions had a provision of vast
importance—calling for a judicial inquiry into the facts, and calling a
bait for 12 months before making
nnv appeal to arms. The finding
■hound none, but the year's delay
gave an opportunity to cool ofl, and
iu most cases there would be no conflict.
Various overtures wero made from
time to time, and were being made,
looking to the reduction of armaments, when the Bhndow of the present struggle fell upon the *virld.
One thing seen before the struggle -
seen more clearly since—was that
militarism must cease. The crushing
burdens of militnrtHtn on the peoples
of the world were crushing the life
out of thorn, and would load to the
crash of civilization. This was one
reason why, amid nil the Vncrease in
power to produce wealth, wants went
misapplied. The wickedness of the
horrible waste!
This was the reason for the speaker's un<squlvocal attitude In his peace
ndvocacy and in the present strugglo-
-an attitude which he stinted with
Lloyd (ieorge nnd others—the recognition of principle! of liberty and
self-government over wider and wld-
•r areas. The Issues concerned the
whole      world-self-government   versus

Improvement   for  Revelstoke
Park  Discussed With Inspector of Parks
S. H. Carpenter, chief of Dominion
police and inspector of parks, met a
gathering of business men yesterday
afternoon when the question of stocking with bsh the lakes in Revelstoke
park was discussed.
1 Mr. Carpenter was introduce.1 by
Mayor Foote who said that he had
impressed upon Mr. Carpenter the
advantages of Revelstoke park both
for summer and winter sports and
had mentioned to lum tbe wish that
the lakes should be st. eked with
lish. He had arranged the meeting as
be thought that a discussion ol the
question would have good results.
| Mr. Carpenter said th.it he would
bring the matter I the attention ol
the commissioners ol parks. He
thought that the storking of the
lakes would be an added attraction
ti the park and bo fell sure tbat the
comratsiioner would not hestitate to
t-tock the lanes if feasible. The department probable had records as to
i the deptb of water but it would not
be practical to stick tbe lakes    if
they  froze ^olid  in  winter.
C. R. Macdonald said that one lake
covered 15 acres and was very deep.
A stream flowed into it and one out
of it. Another lake was about 10
acres in extent and two streams
flowed into it with one -lowing out.
A. J. McDonell said that on ac-
count of the snowfall there could be
no depth of ice on the lakes.
Mr. Carpenter thought that fish
could be obtained trom the Band
On the suggestion ol the mayor
and with tbe approval of Mr. Carpenter it was decided that a letter
should be obtained from tbe hoard of
trade  giving nil avnilable particulars.

Mnyor W. A. Foote was in the
chair and niter explaining that tho
meeting wns called to consider form
ing n locnl branch of the Boy Scouts
association he asked W.H. Wallace to
I g^ve some of the particulars as to
what was required and whnt the exact nim was.
Mr.  Wallace explained  that the aim
of the Boy Scout association wns to
develop good citizenship among hoys
i by  forming    character     and training
them in habits of observation, obedience, discipline, self reliance, self
control, loyalty, inculcating thought
fulness for others and teaching them
services'useful to the public and
handicrafts useful to themselves. A
scouts' promises to be loyal to God
and the king, to help others at all
times, to obey thc scout law. Mr.
Wallace explained that a boy scout
organisation has no military or political aims and tbat it Is non-Bectar-
ian in its religious teaching. He stated that he had been in commun cation with the Hon. T. R. Heneage,
Hon. provincial secretary, but the
date on which he could visit Revelstoke  was not decided.
J. Gordon, vice-principal of the
High scbool, and former scoutmaster
stated that the most important factor in connection witb the boy scouts
was a scoutmaster who could give
sufficient time to the work. The local
conditions he said were ideal and although he would not accept any office he would give all the help possible.
Wheel the question of raising funds
for the uniforms was discussed Mr.
Cordon stated that most of the boys
could supply their own and that if
they did so it would give them more
interest and the uniforms would
be  better taken care of.
It was decided to charge the boys
an entrance fee of, 10 cents. A hoy to
join will have to be between tbe age
of 11 and IS years and must have thc
written consent of his parents. It
was also decided that the membership fee in the association be 50
cents for men, ladies to be honorary

Great credit is due to the courageous and daring newspaper photographer, Edwin Weigle, who risked life
and limb to give to tho world a
glimpse of war as it is. These pictures enable thc spectntor to obtain
a true conception of many of thc
conditions existing In Belgium. The
pictures are photographically excellent, which seems almost incredible

They depict the burning of Antwerp, the battle of Alost, the destruction of Termonde, the battle     of

George B, Douglas, county judge
of Haldimand, Ontnrlo, died last
week, aged 59. He had been in failing
health for about a year. Mr. Douglas was called to the bar ln 18ST and
practised In Chatham for 22 years.
A fine sporting offer which bas already been endorsed enthusiastically!
by two local Conservative bodies ia
the Islands constituency has been
made by Captain W. W. Foster, tha
district's representative in the provincial legislature In vie* of his Impending departure for the front with
his regiment, the Becond Canadian
Mounted Ritles, Captain Foster pro-
Poses that if the constituency will reelect him b\- acclamation in the event
of a general election during his absence he will r sign Immediately upon his return and contest the constituency with whomsoever may be
named to oppose him.
Before miking this announcement
to either of the two Conservative
hod'ies mentioned Captain Foster
stat .1 tb it f the constituency wished
to bave i representative who was on
the spot to look after its interests bo
would resign before going away. This
offer was refused promptly with tho
assurance that the distirt was only
too proud to have a representative
who was able and willing to go to
the front and serve the empire as a
whole in this win Id i Staking May.
Captain Foster then announced that
he had mule arrangements with tha
Hon. Thorn "S Taylor, m n'.ster ot
Public works, to care for this constituency's needs during the time of
the local member's absence at the
Central  Me •' n - ''illed.
Partly as a resu'.t of Captain Foster's unnoune?mn it aim partly forth*
purpose of attending to ie;t.iin iou-
tine business a meeting ol the Islands
Central Conservat.'.ve association haa
been culled to tale plan at Mayna
Island on Saturcl iy i.***. ' If b.s regiment has not been moved Captain
Foster will elide ...,r to attend and
meet the representatives of the constituency as a whole.
During his visit on Friday and
Saturday the member attended an
executive meeting of the association
of North Saaniech In Sidney on Friday evening and was entertained at
an informal smoker at Ganges I.y the
North Salt Spring Island Conservative association. Captain Foster
made a brief address at each meeting and took part in a general dis-
cusslonof road work a- it aflected
both localities.
Captain Poster w.is accompanied t>y
Mrs. Foster and was en'ertained by,
Mrs. Harvey at Knapp Island and by
Mr. George Halley at G mges.
Editorially  The   Sidney  and  Island
Review-  3ays:
Captain Poster's eminently fair pro-
posit'.ou to the electors ol his constituency wih undoubtedly meet witu
the approval ol the voters oi both
Parties in the Isla ids and North
Saanich. Captain Foster quite pro-
I c-rly docs no! wish to _• t int'> the
horBe by the "Hurrah" route in the
nexl election because hi is away on
military duty. On tin other band he
may be par.loned for not wishing to
have a campa rn eond - .•.! a .inst
lum  behind bis  back.
The constituency is to be congratulated th.it the gentleman who is to
cure for its Interests during the member's absence is none .tber thun the
minister ol public works. Mr. Fos-
1.1 s bM.' sei rice In tint minister's

testify. The romls have bem cleaned
up 'tnd Improved wonderfully in the
past year, while the sidewalk from
Sidney t'i the B. <*. Elettric railway
has proved an Inestimable boon. Mr.
Poster unquestionably bul exceptional access to the minister's car and
during his ataence that access is given to the constituency as a whole.
On personal grounds it is doul tfnl
if there is i Liberal in the constituency who does not feel that Captain
Poster is the best representative the
district could have if that represimta-
tive must bc a Conservative. Ho hns

Mrs   Walter Bews that
.I Itghtfully that  be n
entitled Resign,iti"'. alter which
the speaker of the I Mlw  B.A
It. Davies, M.A. was introduced. Miss
Davies is a tluent and versatile speak
cr and dealt with her subject "Wo *
men and Wai." tn a most thorough
manner and her accuracy as to dates
and fncts left no doiil> m to the Care
expended in prcparat;.->n The sterner
historical side was i o tantly re-
lifived by lighter and most amusing
incidents. At the co: cl ,-don ol her
address, all were Unanimous in thr
verdict that Miss Daviei had gi.-er.
thc club one ofthe greatest intellect
ual treats of Its history and the
president in n few wordl thanked her
for the favor cnnferre.l on them. The
subject being „ nomewh.it broad one
and capable of approi el in i rariei
of ways, the speaker explained thai
she hnd confined herself to the pbi se.
of tbe subject which had to do    with
the organized work of women in con
' nection with warfare. This heing thc
ciiBe, she began with thc Crimean
War and from thnt, traced the rise of
the trained nurse, speaking somo-
what at length of the part played hy
Florence Nightingale in that great
development, and of her great service, after the war was over, for tho
betterment of the health of the soldier. The next topic dwelt upon was
the founding of the "Red Cross
socioty" in 1803, and it was shown
to whnt gigantic proportions this
work has grown since that time. Miss
lhivies then proceeded to speak nt
length on the work which is being
carried on toduyv 6y the women ol the
different countries engaged in tho
present wnr. She pointed out the
different national characteristics of
'the women of England, France, Russia, Qermany and Servia and showed
how these characteristics effected
their work. Attention was also drawn
le. the probable effect of the war, upon the women of these different nationalities. In conclusion the audience was given a short glimpse into
the future. Since the progress made
in women's work in war In the past
&0 years has been so great, almost
limitless possibilities open up for
the future. Women at tho present are
the great reserve force of humanity,
because their nervous energy hns not
been consumed by the harder and
heavier tasks of Hfe, but is stored
away, awaiting a chance for development. Tf the European nations re
mum in their present semi-civilixed
condition, which makes war possible
—for even a few generations longer-
it is highly probable thnt as (man
cicrs, as managers of the commissariat department, us inspectors of
provisions and clothing, the women
will play a leading part, nnd there
is not a doubt but that the nation
which has the foresight to use its
women in this wny. will find itself at
an immense advantage over its fellows in time of war. Before adjourn
lng to the social part of the evening.
Mr. J. D. Sibbald, jr., was heard to
splendid advantage in a vocal number entitled 'Thorn.' Thc hostesses

pons, with their long rnni'r and
greatly 'increased      power  ol   piintr
tion, have changed the faco of war.
From thc Battle of Marathon down
to Waterloo otlicers and mon wore
brilliantly clothed and attractively
accountred, and regimental bands as
Buch took tbeir share in tho lighting
by providing martial music. Today
what a contrast to, say, thc uniform
worn by our infantry that formed
tbat 'terrible column' nt Pontenoy.
Tbey wore a loose scarlet coat with
sk'irtS, looped up at the sides to glvo
freedom to tho legs, a close-buttoned
cloth waistcoat coming down to the
thighs; breeches of blue, which were
nearly concealed hy long white gaiters, fastened at the knee by a black
strap, and reaching halfway up the
thigh; and a comical headdress of
cloth with brass insignia. Tho coat
was open at tho collar and the chest,
show'.ng ti white cravat and a clean
shirt, and the cults were turned up to
leave the  wrists free.
Thc l<'r«nch maintained their bands
m tho Cl'lmoau campaigns, nnd their
music, it was said, did as much as
nnythlng to win l.nkcrman. Most of
n. will remember tie use made of the
pipes in the   storming ol the heights
ol   llargai,   when   Pipe   Kinillntcr,      of
tin   Cordon  Highlanders,  thoughsav-
eriy won nib il and unable to advance
in the charge tnndc by bis regiment,
continued to play bis pipes until the
heights were taken. Our line regiments had their bands with them in
the Peninsular Wnr, and historians
tell us that tbey were actually in the
firing line to encourage tbeir eom-
radis In tho fight. At one time our
l mops were hard pressed by thc
Krcnrh. and the Duke of Wellington
commanded the band to go forward
and play the National Anthem. The
offect, we are told, was surprising. A
lent tie that was all but lost was won.
An olllsor who was present subsequently wrote— 'I saw one company
waver, but a non-commissioned officer
shouted that ns long as that music
Listed every man should fight, and he
would put a bullet into the tirst man
who exhibited signs of cowardice.' At

In thc dnnger zone, and. with bullets
Hying over them, tbey played to put

One regiment has for its regimental
march a famous tune which it may
fairly claim to have captured from
the enemy on f'le tield of battle at the
bayonet's point. This is the West
Yorkshire Regiment (the llth Foot),
whose 'quickstep' for more than a
century has been tbe 'Ca Ira,' the
war eh mt of the French Revolution.
The regiment was in Kl niters on Mav.

As the result of tho Western Union
Mines, which recently acquired the

corporation, the Last Chance mine
and the San Poll mine and mill, together with the North Washington
Power and K.'duction company's

The copper market. has continued
bouyant and prices have gone on advancing quite steadily. Lake is now
lii to 151 rents and electrolytic is
L4J to 14] cents a pound. A vcry
large amount of copper has changed
hands In the past few weeks, and the
buying demand is still increasing.
Producing interests appear to be
pretty well sold out, and a slight,
tendency to enlarge outputs is developing. The war is consuming an
enormous amount of copper, domestic consumption is increasing, and
the neutral countries all over tbe
world, which w-cre unable to make
purchases immediately after the war
broke out because of Inability to
linnnce tbem, are now coming into
the market for raw copper and its
manufactured products.—Huston Commercial.

The Canadian mining industry has
Buffered less perhaps than any other
enterprise, excepting that ol agriculture, by tbe prevailing adverse conditions. During 11114 British Columbia mines produced metals valued at
$26,•000,000, or about. $4,1*00,000 Icbb
than in 1913. The value ol Porcupine
gold output was »5,75O,00O, or H,-
[100,000 more than during the year
previous. The production of Cobalt
silver wns valued at $23,'\,iO,ilOfle or
about 84,500,000 less than In 1913,
The lower price of silver accounted
for half of the decrease in value of
the bitter  metal.—llradstreet's.
There' is on exhibition in one of the
windows of The Kootenain a block
of.ore from the Utica mine which
weighs in the neighborhood of GOO
pounds. It was taken out of tbe big
bad or west vein of the Utica and
originally formed part of u chunk
weighing 1200 pounds, but is getting
it. out it was broken 'in two. The plnn
was to get a big chunk to send down
to exhibit at Spokane and to go
Irom there to the big fair at 'Frisco.
The piece secured, however, iB sufficiently big ,enough to impress anybody.
It contains Zinc mostly although
most of the values arc in silver.
Manager Caldwell estimates that it
carries all the way from .100 to 1,000
ounces to the ton of the white metal
and nhout 70 per cent zinc. The silver is not easy to find in making a
distant view but, a close examination
reveals the silver there in its native
state, in little wires hanging close to
lhe sides.—Kootenaian.
.1. T. Vaughan-Rhys left town laBt
Sunday morning with half a dozen
men for tbe Rocher Deboiile, where
they will begin the development work
on the Red Rose group, which was recently acquired by the Red Rose Development Co., whose head office is
in Vancouver. Mr. Vaughan-Rhys will
be at the property most ol his time
until be gets the work under way. On
Sunday's train tbe party took down
more than a ton ol supplies purchased in New Hazelton. Tbe bulance of
the first order will be sent down a
little later on. The wny these men
have evidently sized up the situation is that mining, the premier industry of the province, is the only
one which is a first-dlnss business pro-
I osition at the present time. Having
decided upon taMng up mining they
selected the New Hazelton district
(or the. reason     that,   it is the most
promising district in British Columbia and tho most reasonable oue to
operate. Irrespective .of what the
metal markets are at tho present
time, there is no tear Ior the future.
Gold, iBilver, lead and copper are In-
dinpeusible and the price for those
metals must come back, and undoubtedly tbey will bo back long belore thc
Red Rose Development, company, is
ready to ship ore from their property. —Omineca  Herald.
According to the New York Mining Age, "a year ago tho report of
the B. C. Copper company properties
on Copper Mountain" showed 0,800,-
OIM) tons of ore, an increase of 1,000,-
000 tons over the estimate ol the
year previous. This ore is sa'id to
average 1.87 per cent, copper nnd GO
cents per ton in gold and silver. It
is nearly twice as rich in copper ns
the original properties, and nearly
as rich in gold silver values. What is
equally Important, the ores ol Copper Mountain furnish desirable sill
plmr for fluxing purposes, nnd will
make nn admirable mixture with the
sulphur Iran Old ores in the company's smelter at Greenwood. There
are also on Copper Mountain 4,000,-
000 tons ol probable ore running
around 1.6 per cent, copper, uB well
as 1,000,000 tons of possible ore not
\ et blocked out. No. 1 drillhole, reported last, week to have passed
through 1T>0 feet of thickness of 2-J
per cent ore, although it. furnishes
only a fragmentary drillhole record,
seems destined to play nn important
part in increasing tho estimated tonnage as well as the grade of ore
available at the new Copper Mountain property. A concentrator will be
built when the railroad is completed
to Copper Mountain, and concentrates will be shipped to the Greenwood
smelter. The concentrating mill will
be equipped with the oil flotation process developed to so high a stage ol
perfection at Butte.
The consumption of the red metal
far surpasses present output. The
mines will very soon be compelled,
out of sheer lack of supply of the
metal,  to increnso production.
In the past four months no less
than 388,000,000 pounds of copper
have been taken by domestic and
foreign Consumers—principally foreign. Extraordinary demands for the
red metal are coming from Kurope for
war purposes. The real figure may
possibly exceed 4O0,0Ofl\00O pounds. In
the same interval the refineries are
estimated to have turned out. not
over 2'S'8,no*l,'Oiin pounds. Consumption
therefore, bas exceeded production by
!at least 100,000,000 pounds for the
four months, or 25,000,000 pounds per
; month. ITbese figures aro most Connor
i vntivc. The actual excess of consumption over and above Contemporary production may  be greatly  in
excess of those modest figures.
For tho flrst time in a year, copper, ut H'ic. per pound, is selling at
what may be called above the aver-
ago price of the metal. In the sixteen years since the close of the
, Spanish-American war tho average
I price of electrolytic copper hns boon
a shade better than   I4.tc.
The present market, in (act, the'
copper market lor two months past,
hns been distinctly a sellers market.
The producers have boen, and will
continue to be, in absolute command
of the situation Informed metal circles express not the slightest doubt
of copper's staying above lijc. to
tho end of the war in Europe and
much longer, since a boom ln copper
metal iB Inevitable Immediately following the end of the great COBfllot.

Tigers Win Hard Gome
by Four Points
On Monday evening in thc Y.M.C
A. gymnasium the TlgerB played the
Pirates In the most liottly contested
game that that has been played in
the gymnasium this winter aud at
tbe same time the clcunest. of all the
games yet played in the senior league
Then' has always been a feeling of
keen rivalry between these two
teams, and at times their friendly
relations have been further strained,
consequently this game was looked
forward to as being the opportunity
for a free scrap, and most of the
spectators expected to see one before
the game was finished, therefore they
must have boon surprised to Bee thc
splendid way both teams Btarted out,
uh tli" play   wiih thoroughly  clo.au nml
sportsmanlike all through tho game
except at one point in the first, half,
whore two ol    the    fellows thought
their grievances were real and start
ed to mix things up, and for a while
it. (looked uh if things were about to
bc argued out by hand, this lasted
ou'ly for long enough to assure them
that it was a poor spirit, and all
concerned shook hands, and to the
end of the game there wasn't a single instance of hard feeling shown.
After all was over thc cheers were
real ones and assured thc crowd that
the Tigers and Pirates are on the
best of terras.
Bruce and c'uldcr carried oil thc
honors us far as shooting goals is
concerned, llriice got four for the
Pirates and "Mcrl" sunk live for thc
Tigers, while the rest were divided
pretty evenly between thc other
players in ones nnd twos. The score
was vcr^ close all through the game.
The Pirates led must, of the'way, but
their opponents were never vcry lar
behind, and at one time when the
Tigers got u lead of six points the
cxtfitment was certainly audible, but
the score gradually worked up little
by little till when the "time up"
whistle blow the Pirates had won the
victory over what some think the
hardest team in the league to beat,
by four points, tbe finul score being
24 to 20.
This      game     only      convinces  the
Tigers  that  they  can    trim the    I 'ir
atos.  and  thoy  arc    anxious  for    an
other chance to try.
Thc  lino up wns aB follows:
Pirates,—Bruce, I; McLeod, f; Bur-
tldge, c; Newsome, g Mulholland, g;
Haug spare. j
Tigers,—Little, f; Calder, f; Bennett,  c;   Daniels,  g;  Corley,  g.
Vi. Veith handled the relrees whistle
to the satisfaction of all in the gume
and  out of it.
Ait 7.30 tonight two gnmes of vdl-
ley ball will be played; Businessmen
vs. New Comers and Scotch Recerves
vs. Frmch  Recruits.
The   Bowling     game      of.the  season
will        be        pulled        off       tonight,
ictween tbe Fire Hal! A. and J.B.C.
ncing  ai   8 o'clock. If tbe J.B.

Captain Foster Goes
(Contlnu<ed from Pag* One.)
und a quiet sfleottve speaker whoso
words contain more meat than dressing. He is not. a mixer in'any common ward politics sense, yct has succeeded in making a personal acquaintance Ol almost every resident of the
Whimls district. And those who know
him are his friends for lie hns not an
unlovely or discreditable, characteristic.
Tho constituency wb'ieh has sent to
thc service of the empire in battlo a
greater number of its young men
than any other district, in British Columbia (which means Canada, for no
other province hns responded so completely as this) Is proud that. Its legislative member is also going to perform that arduous, dangerous duty
at lhe outpost. Kvery one of his Constituents knows that Oaptaln Foster
w'ill acquit himself nobly in whatever
sphere his commanding officers call
upon him to serve and every one of
them joins the Review In wishing him
God  speed   and  a  safe return,
If thc voters do not like hiB proposal regarding representation during hiB absence Oaptaln Foster is
willing to resign his seat. now. Those
to whom he bus expressed himself
have emphatically refused to entertain such a suggestion and the Review Is convinced thnt tbey represented the feeling of tbe district at
The chief objection which will be
raised by the Liberals will not be regarding thc constituency but the province as a whiflo. In trying to build
up a Btrong opposition in the next
house they will want every sent they
can get. Nevertheless they will not
win much sympathy in lighting a man
who is away—away on business such
as Captain Foster is going.
An election is not imminent and
few believe thnt the war will not be
over within IS months, which will
give the Alliis two summer campaigns in which to drive their way
towards the enemy's vitals.
In war time money will be scarce
nnd the constituency w'ill be fortunate in not having to go to the expense of an election until peace is
signed and money comes into circulation   again.
Then Captain Foster will ho rendy
to take the Held and contest. tho
constituency with the best man his
political  opponents can  oiler.

War taxes would help to remind us
what militarism would mean on a
universal basis, and wc must bo on
our guard against any tendencies to
militarism in Cannula. We cannot aflord to induce In ourselves or in our
neighbors a spirit of militarism and
have gunB pointing at one another

| ments must be put on a peace footing, I.e. a police footing, with the
sanotlon of the law of nations behind, and controlled In  their behalf.
To this end we must promote on
all liunds a good understanding,   We
cannot, live under this dreadful sense
of Insecurity, this hateful, hellish

not sure that your own brother is
not a foreign 'spy. To swoop this
away every man will be rendy to
lay down his Ufa. We want to breathe
freely and mingle with, our fellows on
the basis of confidence and goodwill.
There can he no peace without a
good understanding, On a mere sentimental basis peace is the most
chimerical of dreams. Armed peace is
veiled war. The armed camp theory
might have been transplanted to this
continent; but thanks to the attitude
of thc two great countries, thc empire and the republic, nnd thanks
to Almighty Cod in that behalf, we
havc been suved that calamity.
This might serve to  point tho way
ifor other nations; but we must remember  the different.     conditions—wc
ihave a common heritage, speak the
same language,    share  approximately
jthe same ideas—and   beware     of     a
! Pharisaical attitude.
I A good understanding must precede
any plans for disarmament. You cannot have peace ii any power lelectB to
come up to your harbfnrs nnd let go itB
guns—unless you decide to hand
yourselves over. Th I present struggle
is because certain nations refused a
good understanding, nnd sought to
impose militaristic culture on the
world. Please Cod the, present struggle will end in the overthrow of
militarism, and in the cultivation of
a good understanding among the
nations of the world. We arc not
lighting peoples, but principles, principalities, powers. There is no passion in our attitude and there must
be no teaching the rising generation
hymns of hate.
Many questions w'ill come up for
urgent consideration: nntional questions, racial questions, questions of
social justice. There can never be
true peace on the present, selfish basis
of society.  Here is work for    stutes-
i men for thc next hundred years, in
recasting the social structure. ThiB
is the inspiration and goal of the
new crusaders. National existence, international relations, social conditions must be recreated on the basis
of righteousness. The work of righteousness shall be pence, and the effect of righteousncBs quietness and
confidence forever.
