The' only noticeable change in the  price quotations was in the meat section, veal and mutton being a trifle  lower.

The usual large supply of eggs  sold at the stationary price of 65c  a dozen, retail, and 50c to 55c a dozen wholesale.

AN EXPLANATION OF HOW  THE  WAR STARTED  woud result. It was thoroughly  realized   that  the   responsibility  for  such   a   catastrophe   would   rest   on  that  nation  which  applied  the  first  match to the sticks.    Tlie only man-  who treated this    affair  . cavalierly,  and entered into    hostilities ,  light-  heartedly was he who considered him  self the happy possessor of an absolutely  invulnerable military machine  ���������"the Great,War Lord"!  ���������    France  did not want war.    She was willing  to  agree  to  any   plan  which  womd  avert it.    Russia,  the acknowledged  natural protector of the Slay race,did  not want,war.   "She could liotb e,expected to put up with a repetition of  the   humbling .-received   by   he,f   in  190S  at- the hands of Germany and  Austria, when tlie latter,, aware    of  Russia's unpreparedness,  seized and  annexed the Slav provinces and peoples of Bosnia and Herzegovina,, and  her ally, Germany, informed the Tsar  that if he dared to move in' the matter his kingdom should- be smashed.  Yet she was willing to withhold her  hand,-and advise'the Servians to bow  to Austria's demands so long as they  did not involve the destruction of her  sovereign rights as a nation. Nobody  who knows Italy could  think  for a  moment that she wanted war.    Austria herself,  who  had been oflicially  notified  during the  progress ��������� of ,the  Balkan war, at a time when she was  believed to  have  designs on  Sorvia,  that any attack on the sovereignty of  Servia would be an attack on Russia: Austria, when she found that her  action .would inevitably mean a European conflict,, was ready to compromise.    England strove the hardest of  all   to   preserve'peace   (so  hard,  in  fact, that many people here���������including   myself���������think   that   if   we   had  shown less intense concern for peace  and more���������a great deal, more���������belig-  orency, it would have been bettor for  us all)   Germany  alone  blocked the  way.     She  took up  a  bellicose position  right from  the commencement  of  the  conversations,  and  whenever  her words appeared to lend support  to  a   peaceable  solution,   they  wore  belied   by  her actions.    She     found  fault with every suggestion that was  made for the advancement of friendly   negotiations.    While the   Kaiser  was asking the Tsar to "use his influence with Servia to procure the lat-  ter's complete submission to Austria,  German ambassadors at Vienna were  seeing to it that the wound was not  allowed to heal, and taking care that  efforts at reconciliation were not given  a  chance  to   fructify.    Germany  is shown to be the leading partner in  this affair���������not Austria. Before   the  dispatch of that remarkable ultimatum, it was submitted to the Kaiser  for approval.  , Why?    No other power  was  consulted.-   Even  Italy,- the  other member of. the Triple Alliance (  was as much in'the'dark as England  and  the' rest'-of  the  powers.   From  whatever point the evidence is studied,  one conclusion alone holds the  field���������Germany was the  obstacle to  peace. ' Why?' I will give you what  I believe to be the only logical ans-  ,wer:   Because she believed that the  day  she had  waited and  hoped for  had come.    Opportunity is one of the  greatest things, in this "world.    Some  people's  extremities  frequently provide  others'  opportunities.  Germany  scented  what  she  thought' was  her  opportunity���������and took it. For many  years  'she   had ibeenj   consolidating  all her forces and  preparing, in' every possible manner for a war which  she intended to come at some time,  or another, wlien she was quite ready  for it.    Her own. preparations were  the hands ' of disarmament faddists  and Utopian.dreamers, and absolutely  obsessed with the claims of peace-  peace���������peace. Besides she had troubles of her own. Her. colonies were  dissatisfied; India. wa3, in a ferment;  Ireland on the brink of. civil war.  Oh,, dear, no, England was a cock  that wouldn't fight. And she bad no  army, and her navy was over rati-;d  And even if - she was a force to be  reckoned with, she could be- dealt  with late, - Nobody else mattered.  Was ever such an opportunity before,  or likely to occur again? War between great powers is not generally  an amusement. There are ���������things���������,  vital things���������Co1 be aimed at. - And>  Germany had aims���������big,aims/ She  was ready���������others not. It was her  opportunity. She took it. ( And that  is why Germany blocked the way,  and why her efforts wore directed  towards keeping alive the casus belli.  I have said that for many,years  Germany had been preparing for  this war. Overwhelming-evidence of  tho truth of this assertion continues  to accumulate:, Papers found-in the  possession of spies and prisoners of  importance (officer, etc.); abnormally largo orders for supplies given to  German firms in England and ol^et  whore many months in advance; enormous buying operations in raw ma-  tieials for mjlitarv requirements (in  quantities which would be quite un-  ncessary for c-dinary use in time cf  peace); gigantic deals in coal, etc.,  for .warships, some of which was sf-nt  to sea under sealed orders i dated  June last) to lie transported to German agents in August and September  who in turn would transit ij it by  colliers to German cruisers at sea,  ''who would by that tinio probably be  in a state of war with another conn ���������  try'; all those, and similar things,  I oint to one exclusion; that at some  ]>i':-iod oloso ot hand Germany'wonld  be engaged in war on a -large scale  Neither did Germany's preparations  begin and end with her own peoples  and her own land. Guns of unprecedented size and power have, been'  used by her In France and Belgium'  Very, firm foundations are necessary  to work them from. ��������� In several cases  the concrete bases for those guns  were laid down' some time since by  Germany's military emissaries in S.  Belgium and'N. France.- A harmless  capitalist would arrive and choose  and purchase a likely .plot of land  "to erect a factory'." The positions  were well chosen, a thick concrete  foundation would be laid, and then  something would happen to stop the  project and the "capitalist and his  scheme would evaporate. Not the  foundation��������� that .would remain.  Many German residents found it convenient to play "lawn" tennis tin concrete courts. Even Englannd was not  spared���������nor Scotland. A printing  office in-Willesden was put up" with'  enormously thick foundations and'  walls���������a one-storey building having  a concrete roof. . The statement was  that another storey was to be "built  above it in which heavy machinery  would run. The second storey and  the machinery have never materialized, but we are waking up to the  fact that that roof dominates three  lines of railway at Willesden junction ( G.E. R., N. L. R., L & N. -W.  R.) and possiblly sundry electrified  systems, besides commanding a'splendid   panorama   of   London.    It  may  K.���������but���������Just  from,time to time put in an appearance. Strange to say, the position  not only covers Edinburgh, but also  ihe' naval base of Rosyth!, Now  t won't go-any further.���������There's too  much'of it. No wonder they thought  us asieep!. But it all shows that Ger-  riiany prepared for -war, and that  t hose preparations were for- a war  of, offence and defence, "i. have said  that Germany wanted war. In other  words, that all their efforts during  the past few years have been directed  to'precipitating trouble. If there is  any individual who alill doubts this,  he should read Sir E.

If the Canadian hog raisers wish  to have thegreatest market they have  ever had for their :stock it is,up to  them to at once" take steps through  their Canadian government -officials to  have the United States at once to remove the quarantine which has been  placed on Canadian, hogs and cattle,  because of the outbreak of the foot  and mouth disease in a few of the  states in this country. It Is the opportunity of a life time for the Canadian hog raisers and. -with ' effort  they should have no trouble in having their government convince the U.  S. -Department of Agriculture -of the  great Injustice it is doing Canada in  maintaining a quarantine against  their stock.  So,long as this quarantine is maintained the Canadian grower will be  absolutely at the mercy of the Canadian beef trust, which is part and  parcel of the American beef trust.  If the Canadian growers are compelled to sell their stock to the Canadian trust it means that they will  have to accept the famine prices for  their stock whereas if they have the  quarantine removed they can reap enormous profits by selling to the independent packers on this side who are  now in the market for Canadian hogs  these packers have the cash, they  want the Canadian hogs and their  one and only reason for not buying is the foolish quarantine maintained against them by our government. That the Canadian officials  should have no trouble in having  this quarantine removed is conceded  for it is a well known fact that the  Canadian hogs and cattle are in perfect condition, free of any and all diseases and to maintain a quarantine  against them is the rankest injustice  ever practised by one friendly country against another. It's up to the  Canadian growers to get busy with  their government officials at once; if  they act and act promptly the quarantine can be brought to an end at  once.
