When we turn from theories of the

and examine ln turn the various part
of tbe war machinery without being
misled b ythe glamor and pomp of

juvcnatlng of the corps of officers,
ibe equipment ot the infantry, the
fleld gun of the artillery, and the
aaddlery of the cavalry are all poor,
but are not renovated for the sam*
reason. The artillery suffers from
low establishments aad Insufficient
horses, and the six-gun batteriea are
not able to bring more than three or
four guns and a wagon or two to
manoeuvres. The corps of oiffcers
shows a considerable deficit owing to
the counter-attractions of the popular
navy. The service of aviation has
not been encouraged, out on tbe contrary has been starved. Had one-half
of the sums devoted to the navy

mand. The staff work, though usually good waa not by any means
above suspicion. The infantry lacked dash, displayed no knowledge of
the use of ground, Intrenched themselves badly, were extremely slow ln
their movements, offered vulnerable
targets at medlus ranges. Ignored the
service of security, performed the approach marches ln an old-time manner, were not trained to understand
the connection between flre an.l
movement, and seemed totally unaware of Ota effect of modern flre.
The cavalry drilled well and showed
some beautifully trained horses,
while tbe Cavalry of tbe Guard was
well handled from the army point of
view, but the arm was ln many ways
exceedingly old-fashioned, the scouting was bad, and mistakes were made
cf which our Yeomanry would be
ashamed. The artillery, with Its out-1
of-date "materiel" and slow and ineffective methods of flre, appeared so
inferior that it can have no preten-'
sions to emasure itself against the!
French on anything approaching |
Finally,   the  dirigibles |
tlaily altered for the better tbe strategical situation as against England,
and have- consequently, on balance,
diminished the security of the German Empire by depriving ita army
of many things which lt needs.

writer  to   have  trained  its'elf  stale.
Year in, year out, the same ceaseless
round of intensive training has reduced the whole army to a machine
by  which  individuality, initiative, an
freshness have been rigoiously crushed out.   The effort to create initiative
by regulation has not succeeded. The
training of the year, always the
same, has become a form of somnambulism. Everybody does the
same thing every hour of every day
every year, and officers who have to
wait 16 to 17 years for their companies are���spent and tired long before
they rise to high command. The majority ot senior regimental officers do
not  possess   the   physical   qualitica-
tions  necessary  for  effective  service
during the arduous strain of tlie infantry fight, and until the cadres are
rejuvenated these conditions will re-
I main   unaltered.      There  are    some
great thinkers and some hard workers among the officers, but the Impression conveyed is that only a sel-
| eet few really work, that all individuality has been crushed out of the
tank and ills, and that both abso-
I lutely, and still  more   relatively  the
German army, ia not so good as its
forerunner which achieved the union
of the German states.   "A bloody war

The German army  is still a great
and a formidable machine.     No one
ahould entertain any illusion on this
subject.   In numbers, in organization
and in tbe absorption of all the best
elements   of   the   state   for  its   own
ends it has few if any equals.   But it
asserts a claim of superior efficiency,
and the proofs which it gave at the
"Kalsermanover" of 1911 to substantiate this claim were not convincing.
Not by the writer alone, but by some
of the shrewdest observers from East
and West, the conclusion was drawn
that the German army had ceased to
provide that model  of superior  mill

This particular castle some years sgo

at once that the stranger wns on excellent player. The game was a long

dawned on Bisboff tbat bis visitor and
the man with tbo red beard were one

"I wlll checkmate you In six moves."
said the stranger.
"You mean that I wilt checkmate
you in six moves." said Blshoff
'This against your castle that It Is I

a draft for 30,000 marks on a bank tn
"Done." said Blshoff.
His opponent took  up a piece nnd

It doen.net require a meeting of
��JtC LU^H1*. Jarty in cttUCUB to learn
what is likely to be the tariff policy
to be pressed upon the leaders, says
tfi%''ibtttfMr Wee Press.      The   men
from y^Wes* have come back ab"
sdiute'lfc ittpKhed with the necessity
for increasing thg present prefei-
��nce given by Canada upon British
importations- More than that, they
are doing good work of a missionary
style among the Liberal members
from the other provinces in the direction of eventual free trade with
Great! Britain.
Ani lt ls also Interesting to note
that there' Is a growing spirit among
thr CdteeiVatiVes, even those from
Quebec, in favor of Imperial commercial union; but the difficulty is
that auch a commercial union could
. not be secured without the taxation
of the food o* *be people of Britain,
and1 there it ho indication that, despite *M the millions which may be
expended, the people of the Mother
Land wltt. ever agree to taxation of
their food; and without a preferential
duty upon food products the whole
system of Empire tariff protection,
must fall to the ground.
1 So far as The Free Press is concerned, we believe that the very best
policy which could be adopted by the
Liberal party would be to ask an
immediate increase of the Britisb
preference. It would be a popular
njpve. It would prick the Tory Imperial bubble in a few hours, and it
would prove to the country that, jus
as tbe Conservative party opposed
the establishment of the British preference and bas steadily opposed it in
and out ofrparliament, so the Liber-
.als stand for a policy which will give
freer access to our markets to tho j
products of the Mother Countries.      I
The Liberal party is particularly
well entitled to take this attitude!

It ls even credible that a perceptible

tenable  Interpretation   of   some  Ben- ���

ufter ail, to reconcile himself to bis !

and that he magnanimously Indicates
this  difficulty  in the passage where |
he good-humoredly suggests that men
of his age���his youth, as youth goes
among  party  leaders���may  be  glowing too impenetrable to new ideas.
For the Conservative party the situation is terrible. It is bad enough
that they have no one among their
leaders who approaches Mr. Balfour
in stature and distinction. It is worse
still that there is a remarkable abundance of dwarfs all of just about the
same inches as one another. Worst
of all, however Mr. Balfour may hope
and strive to abate the hardship, his
successor in the Commons will be ai-1

There. Is nothing iuslncere or perfunctory    in   the regrets whicli Liberals will  mingle  with  those of thc
Conservative party at the retirement
of Mr.  Balfour trom  its leadership,
.says the Manchester Guardian.    Beyond ail question he is of the race of
great" political leaders.    He  has tho
tallness  of  character  and   full   mind
.that compelled  respect  in Gladstone
and Salisbury.   Like them he is the
better  as  a   statesman    for   having
keen interests outside politics;  he is
.a man splendidly civilized, rich in intellectual energy  and  curiosity, able
to bind political associates to him in
strong ae Action, and to conciliate by
an    unsurpassable    personal    charm
-even those with whom his personal
.contact ia the slightest.    In debate
he has accomplishment approaching
genius, and In public conflict he has
almost shown the sovereign self-con-
.f rol which keeps controversy about a
country's  good   from  sinking  into  a
Bystem  of insatiable  spites.    We do
not attribute to him all the qualities
of the greatest national leaders;   he
has  not  shown  the   tremendous  administrative energy and thoroughness
���of Mr. Chamberlain, nor Disraeli's demonic   gift   of   political   imagination,
.nor the huge moral  momentum that
sustained . and   impelled    Gladstone.
Hut everyone feels that as a  Parliamentarian  be   bi-longs,   so   to   speak.

It would be mere guesswork to of-
. Ter any surmises as to the degree in
which   Mr.   Balfour's   decision    may
! have been influenced or hastened by
i the recent Conservative atacks  upoa
���him.   For a long time there has been
���a   persistent  attempt   to   worry   him
out at the post, and since the passing of the Parliament  Bill  the  violence of the  "B.  M. G."  movement,
;as  it  called   Itself,  has   become  notorious.    No doubt  some of  its  bitterness, in extreme cases, was due to
the envy which  a great personality
arouses   in   soured   little   ones,   but
there  has   been   a   more    reputable
kind  of  incompatlbilty   between,   for
instance,  Mr.     Balfour's    theory    of
party management and the bold Tory
���democracy of the Morning Post, and,
iigain,   .between    Mr.    Balfour's    Instinct  for  the  possible  on   the   one

i in   the   Trentino,  of   Austrian   naval
1 stations at Trieste and ola and the
; continued rule of   the    Dual Empire
i in provinces  which are still  peopled
by Italians.      In addition, the question   of  Albania,   where  Italian  and
Austrian ambition clash, was a permanent source of apprehension.
An adventure which should absorb
Italian armies and money in Africa
might then easily relieve the pressure upon the Austrian frontier and
turn Italian attention to Tripoli
rather than Albania. This consideration explains a certain measure of
tbe Austrian calmness. On the other hand, the war unmistakably placed Italy in the hands of the Anglo-
Krench naval power. It quite as obviously suggested a speedy end to the
Triple Alliance, and might presently
result in leaving Italy, her African
conquest completed, free to turn her |
attention to the Trentino and Balkans, not Impossibly with the aid
of new allies. In addition, the whole j
Balkan question might suddenly be
precipitated at an unfortunate mo- j
ment when Germany was at odds
with France, England and Russia.
As for the Germans, their point ot
view Is plainest of all; for them the
Trlpolltan adventure was all loss and
no gain. While the Triple Alliance
was deprived of the services of one
member and French army corps
hitherto held in the southeast relieved for activity along the Vosges, the
real cause for rage was the fact that
Turkey, already regard*d as a sort
| (lt ally, a partial counterbalance to
Russian forces in a general war, was
| transformed at once into a resentful
if not a hostile nation. Germany
had assumed the position of protec-
tor of the Port anainst Europe, and
In return counted upon the strong
Turkish army in htr campaigns.
At one unexpected blow Germany
losl an ally, perhaps doubtful, but at
least of a certain value, and in addition the friendship of the Turks.
Which alike in war and commeico
has figured largely in German plans.
The Baghdad railway, the commercial penetration of Asia Minor, the
German supremacy in the Orient, all
these combinations crashed down
With the bombardment of Tripoli.
As for German protest at Itome. il
was bound to be futile, since war
was declared; it was equally certain
to be dangerous, since German adhesion to Italian supremacy in Tripoli
as a future contingency has been a
portion of the terms of the Triple Alliance.      Germany,    therfore,

which proved very popular. Hamlin

the spectators' sympathy at the very
start, and moved many to laughter,
while for music the management depended on Louise Byrd. who sang the
"Navajo Rag" to the accompaniment
of some stirring pictures thrown on
the screen behind her. This wild song
proved very much to the taste of the
listeners, as also did the mimicry and

A report of the finance committee
recommending that the accounts of
Mayor Lee and Alderman Lynch for
expenses incurred on their trip to
Victoria for the municipal convention
amounting to $35 apiece be paid, was
the occasion of a small storm in a
teacup. Alderman Bryson objected to
the amount of the bill. "Why, we
used to get only |25 and we bad a
very good time on that, too," he exclaimed. Alderman Lynch laughingly
accounted for the larger sunTT)y the
increased cost of living, and the
account was passed with Alderman
Bryson alone dissenting.
The report of the health committee
was then submitted by Alderman
Dodd. The most Important Item of
this report dealt with the site of the
isolation hospital. Tbe committee
stated tbat tbey had been unable to
find a suitable site, and recommended
tbat the original site at the corner of
Sixth street and Eighth avenue be
utilized for the purpose. The neighboring residents had long understood,
they argued, that this site was put
aside for an Isolation hospital and it
would be working less of a hardship
on tbem than on any others to put
the building there. Besides, they
would be unable to sell this property
for any other purpose. Accordingly
the report was adopted.
The rest of the business transacted
was mainly of a routine character.

for the grading of Ninth street from

"The Relation of Philosophy to Religion." Is the subject of a series of
six lectures tbat are being given at
University College, Toronto, each
Friday afternoon during the Christmas term. Lectures are being de-
\lv**Tt*i\ hv members of the philosophical staff, and the aim is party to
Show that the outstanding philosophers of the ages were men ot deep
religious conviction.
Prof. T. R. Robinson, of University
College, lectured on "St. Augustine,"
who flourished about 400 A. D. The
professor touched briefly on the transition period of 700 years, in which
Christianity, which was Hebrew in
origin, became transplanted to Greek
soil. In spite of the marked differences between Greek thought and
Christianity, there was a continuity
of thought right through the ages.
The reason was that, while Christianity was accepted by the Greeks,
they moulded it into Greek forms of
thought. The potency of the Influence of platontc speculative thought
on Christianity might be measured
by comparing Christ's Sermon on the
Mount with the Nioene creed, which
was practically that of the Church
today. It was the difference between
conduct, whicb Christ emphasized, >
and a system of beliefs. The creed |
made no reference to conduct; the
Sermon on the Mount made no reference to doctrines.
The lecturer showed how the doctrine of a Trinity was found in the
platonic schools of Neo-Platonism and
Gnosticism, which were in vogue just
before the Christian era. He also
pointed out that the Arian Controversy as to the substance of the
Father and the Son was based on a
purely Greek idea.
Greek society had taken many
steps in moral progress, witnesses
being Eplctetus and Marcus Aurelius.
Yet there was no place for forgiveness in their systems. There was a
dualism in all their thought between
tbe spirit, which came from God and
the body, with Its evil, sensuous nature. They sought to get away from
the fleshly rather than transform It,
which it was   lhe genius   of Christianity to do.
Augustine was a disciple of Greek
philosophy for a time, but finally
took refuge in Christianity. He accepted the Hebrew God, the doctrine
of salvation through grace; and yet
hls theology was permeated wltn
Greek Ideas. He. sought to get over
tbe dualism of tbe Greeks as to "God"
and "evil," by the doctrine that man
in the beginning was free until he
sinned, after which he\ became predestined.
In conclusion, the professor said
that emn were eevr slow to change
the form of their beliefs, fearing to
upset tbe fundamentals of their religious systems. The alarm caused
by "Evolution" and "Historic Crltl
cism" was proof of this. But when It
could be pointed out tbat our religion
had before now undergone great
transformation, and that it would
survived, might we not hope that lt
would survive another? "When we
consider," he concluded, "that our
religion's familiar historical form is
not its original one, might it not be
that the impending changes would
at any rate take it no further away
from, and perhaps even bring it back
somewhat nearer to its original

It Cost Her Her Life In the Wreck
of a Submarine.
Story of a Pathetic Episode That Was
Intertwined   With   the   Tragic   Less
'   With  All  en   Board  of the   French
'   Terpede Beat Pluviose.
Underlying the tragedy of tbe loss
of the French submarine torpedo bo.'t
Pluviose with twenty-seven lives
when sbe was sunk in the bottom of
tbe English channel by a collision
wltb a surface steamship on Msy 25.
1010. was a piteous episode, involving
the death of a beautiful and brilliant
young Frenchwoman.
The French, government suppressed
tbe story ao thoroughly that to this
day the name of tbe young woman is
not known save to those in paramount
authority in tbe navy, but American
liuvul officers say the fact of the bap-
]i<>nlng bus become known to otber
tin vn I men uli over the world.
The I'luviose nnd a sister submarine
tind gone out from tbe navy yard at
Caleb about 1 o'clock lu tbe afternoon
for u  series of maneuvers.   She was
uImiui two miles from shore and was
disporting in u series of dives aud ris-
tv-Js t<> the surface.   The feat known
as   ������porpoising"   was   being   accomplished with great skill, tbe submarine
being entirely responsive to every turn
of a directing wheel In ber machinery.
The act of "porpoising" is an Imitation
of the action of tbe porpoise tn Its leaps
ubove   water  and  prompt  disappearance- Immediately afterward,   fn the
submarine the maneuver ls made for
tbe purpose of scouting, tbe boat being brought toward the surface sufficiently for its periscope to protrude out
of water, wben the officer below ls enabled to make a general circular sttr-

hotel man has patented a tag which
carries a postage stamp under a little
celluloid disk. Tbe disk, wbicb protects tbe stamp against wear or defacement. Is pulled off and thrown
