Although  weather conditions have been anything but favorable the club managed  to break even on finances.  Mr. and Mrs. Bridges, who have  been,living north of Calgary. Alta.,  foivjthe past two years, returned on  Monday, and will spend the summer  on the ranch.  Ranchers were busy the early part  of the week having their cattle yacci-  nated.for the prevention of blackleg  before turning them out on the flats.  The reason Jack Boydell took the  telescope along last week was so as to  be sure, of locating Wynndel, as he  was out of tobacco. The correspondent is right; before finding Wynndel  one must do some rooting.  Messrs. Hood, Carr, Spratt and  Andy Anderson have already turned  their stock out on the flats for the  spring pasture. By careful feeding all  the stock in these parts has come  through the prolonged winter in good  shape and no hay famine to record,  either.  Almost every member on the roll,  along with a nun-hfer of visitors, were  out for the April meeting of the Women's Institute on'^aturday in ������peers'  Hall, which was presided over by Mrs.  H.B. Downs, the president.  The question lof having a flower  show in Creston .toward the end of  the summer Was discussed and so unanimously and enthusiastically fayor-  ed that it was decided to hold the exhibition at a date to be chosen later  thus giving all wn% wish to compete  ample time to arrange their floral  activities early in the season.

The matter of assisting in the  work of the League of Empire was introduced by the reading of -a circular  in this connection by Miss Hardman.  The aim of this institution is to supply  reading matter to tiie. soldiers in camp  and at the front. A committee, consisting of Mrs. Hayden, Mrs. F. Smith  and Misses Lillian; Cherrington and  Phyllis Lyne ' was named to investigate the, matter and report at next  meeting.

The monthly meeting of the board  of directors of the Co-Operative Fruit  Growers Association was held on  Monday night.  The car of fertilizer and nitrate of  soda for the Co-Operative Fruit Growers Association, arrived early this  week. ~'  Just the right kind of weather has  been ordered for the basket social on  April I5th, and with the roads in good  condition a large crowd is expected.  The ladies are takiug the matter very  seriously, and some .wonderful creations wiii be in evidence.

Duck  to  Minnesota, U.S.A.  ������������������'Pad" Browell and Fred expect   to  A   rather   shrewd   bit   of   burglar-  catching* waa enacted by the provincial  police last week, when two of the men  who robbed the Meagher store at Nel- *  son  on  Monday night of  $800 worrli  of   silks    and    other    goods.     Weir  nabbed at Bonner's Ferry,  Idaho,  on  Thursday,   and   were safely   landed  back in Nelson jail on Friday evening.  It would appear that after the  rob-  berry two of the men, who give   their  names as Martin   Graham   and  John  Doe.pulled out for Cranbrook Tuesday,  but suspecting the Cranbrook  poilci*  ���������were   watching   them   they   doubled  back to Creston on   Wednesday, only  to be promptly  shadowed by Provincial Constable Forrestea, who immediately got in touch with  Nelson  for a  description, if   they   had  one," of tinmen suspected of the burglary.    While  this was being obtained   the two men  got a very hasty supper at the Chinese  i restaurant on-Wilson Avenue and immediately disappeared.  Suspecting they would be making  for across the line at Port Hill where  the crossing would be less dangerous  than at Eastport, Forrester telephoned Customs Officer Young to detain  the men and hold for deportation ni  any cost.- .For some reason Mr. Young  failed to even attempt to do as le-  quested, but on Thursday morning  telephoned Forrester that two men  answering that description had gone  through, apparently making for  Bonner's Ferry.  Forrestei immediately  wived  Clark  leaye this nionth. for Davidson,  Sask.  where they will be engaged breaking'; Collins, tho American customs  officer  virgin prairie soil for Roy Browell, | at Eastport, all the details and  asked  Junior  Tho W.C.T.U- has its x.,a-,. aieoting  i*t Mrs. Graiglo's on Thursday afternoon next.

Cecil Matthews returned from Nelson hospital on Saturday whoro ho hos  been a. patient for almost 'throe weeks  recovering from an operation for  appendicitis. Ho still requires a  crutch to humor the leg he had broken  while sledding over two months ago.

E. S. Butterfield was a Creston caller on Sunday and Monday. Mrs. Pen-  son was visiting round town ui Monday, and Miss Anna Hagen took in  the sights on Wednesday.  Misses Olga Wigen and Amy Johnson took their annual walk into Creston on Wednesday.  Monrad Wigon's mill started running at tho end of last wook. Ho has  a full crow of men working, and' is  stacking up the Inmboi in groat shape.  Pto. Jack Williams of tho I3th Battalion, stationed at Medicine Hat, Alberta, arrived hero on Tuesday to  upend a fow days with his brother, 13.  Williams.

In  contrast to Young's indifference the  action of Collins and Davis in going so  promptly after tho men stands out iu  commendable and bold roliof.

Hence that class  of gentry havo naturally glvon ('ronton a vory wide berth since then.

"I'm no mind reader," he said. "But]  she'll   probably   stop   at    the     Black- j  stone���������that is, until the Chicago police are tipped off that she is in town."  The face oL the young man took on  a totally different expression. He went  close to the inspector and spoke with  intense seriousness.  "Burke," he said pleadingly, "give  me a chance.

Inspector Burke eon  j tossed,   "but  hor  pals   are  coming   to  ' try  to  pull off something right  here.  She wouldn't come, not if I know her.  She's too clever for that.   Why, if she  knew what    Garson    was    planning to  do. she'd stop him."  The inspector paused suddenly. For  a long minute his face was seamed  with thought. Then he smote his  thigh with a blow strong enough to  kili" an ox.    His face was radiant.  ������������������I've got her!" he cried. He went  to the desk where the telephone was  and. took   up  tiie receiver.  "Give me 3100 Spring," he said.   As  he waited for the connection he smiled  ; widely on the astonished Gilder.  "Headquarters?" he called, "inspector Burke speaking. Who's in my office? I want him quick." He smiled  as he listened, and he spoke again to  iscussion  ion   of   a  the. passage  the inspee-  m going "to  gave your  there."  - protested.  "What about him? He's the one thing  of  importance  to  me."  "if he says anything more about going to Chicago just let him go, that's  all! It's tho best place "for him for  the next few days."  "You're in charge here," Burke said  lo Cassidy, "and I hold your responsible, lhu coming back to get this  bunch myself, and I'll call you when  you're wanted.

Generally speaking, the newspapers  say the scarcity of provisions is peculiar to Petrograd, which must be provisioned by means of a single railway  which already is heavily taxed by war  business.  At Moscow the situation is normal  and everywhere else, both in town  and country, there are ample supplies,  and the mass of the people are in better condition to purchase than ever  before. The peasants are receiving  about double the usual amount for  their produce and labor and cannot  waste their means on drink. The only  reason why the new fast days apply  to the whola empire is a precaution  to check the tendency to eat more  meat than usual and thereby cause a  dangerous drain on tho supplies of  cattle.

In. regard to the  cattle market we opened a new outlet  by shipping to Seattle, which has-had  a" stimulating affect on the market  here. We have had shipped, since the  middle of Novembar, over 2,000 head  j of beef cattle. We might also add that  these cattle brought the top price on  the open market. The highest price  paid on the Seattle market was. for an  Alberta steer, which w*e shipped.December 20, 1915, weighing 1.700 lbs.,  which brought the fancy price of 10c  per  lb.  "Since the opening of the Alberta  stockyards the livestock business in  Alberta has grown, and markets have  been opened, which have given the  farmers a competitive market l'or  their livestock.  "The hog industry has multiplied  many times in the last three years.  There are many signs pointing to an  increase in the' number of sheep i^J  cattle. The sheep business is being  developed rapidly, and the demand for  breeding ewes has :jent prices up both  east and west. Breeders ol pure-bred  sheep have sold all they can spare.  During the past two or three years  farmers and ranchers have been increasing their herds; cows and heifers have been held, while hundreds  which have come to market have  been shipped back tc the country fcr  breeding purposes. The producer in  the country lias no need to worry, and  wo anticipate good prices for everything he has to sell."

Alberta Banks Loan  Money on Gram  Farmers Unable to Get it to Market  and Compelled to Borrow  Since the analysis of.the grain traffic and the existing conditions'when  the farmer cannot ship pr sell his  grain, tho hanks of Alberta are loaning a great deal pE money to the grain  growers on grain in the field and in  the privately owned bins of the farmer. This is the information learned  from a prominent Calgary banker.   .  "Perhaps the banks have not until  recently loaned great rsums of- money  on grain on the farm, as permitted by  section 88 of the Bank act, but-lately  there has been a great increase in the  amounts to be loaned," said the bank  manager. "The reason for the much  larger amounts so loaned now as  compared to formerly is that until  this season few farmers had grain on  the farm on'which to borrow money.  Also, the farmers this year had little  call to borrow money on their grain  until the transportation facilities got  so that the grain -could not be moved  to market and sold. But lately there  is such a congestion of grain at terminals, and so-few cars and so little  motive power, that the farmers can  not sell and must borrow money. And  the first ones they come to are the  banks; and the banks loan them money when the hanks can do so safely;  when the farmer has a character and  standing, that will warrant it; he need  not have grain if the manager has  found him to be a man of his word  and of excellent character."

The source of the spore is not the  seed corn, therefore treatment will do  no good. Tho only method of eradication is to cut off the smutty stalks  ' and burn them. This, of course, is  impractical.���������O.* M. Allyn, Farm  Crops Division, University of Illinois.  Sciatica Vanishes Instantly  tt Nerviline is Use  CAN YOU BEAT THIS  CASE ?  No ordinary liniment will even relieve Sciatica. Nothing* but the most  powerful kind of a remedy ean penetrate through the tissues'and finally  reach the Sciatic Nerve. You can always depend on the old time "Nerviline." Nothing made today is as good  .for Sciatic as Nerviline was when  first produced, about forty years ago.  All this time the same old "Nerviline"  has been curing Sciatica, Lumbago,  Rheumatism and is considered to be  without an equal in relieving pain or  soreness anywhere. ".'-Nerviline'  couldn't be made stronger or better,"  writes James E. Edwards. "The way  it cures sciatica is to me simply a  miracle.- For years I suffered frightfully. ,1 ruined my stomach with internal dosing. I rubbed in gallons of  oils and liniments���������none were strong  enough. One good rubbing with Nerviline relieved." I kept on rubbing and  shortly was cured. My father cured  rheumatism in his right arm and  shoulder with Nerviline, and my  mother cured herself of chronic lumbago with Nerviline, Our family simply swears-by Nerviline and we are  never without a 50c family size bottle in our home. We find that for external pain, for coughs, colds, earache,  such minor ills it is a veritable family  physician."

Any- impression that Ireland is shrinking her  duty will be a deadly injury to her  future interests.  "There has been slackness in recruiting in the agricultural districts,,  but winning the war is of the greatest  importance to Irish agriculturists, for  if the allies are defeated there is danger of every Irish tenant being robbed of his land by the Prussians.

In fact, I had headaches  day and night. My appetite was very  poor and I frequently had pains in tho  buck. After using1 a fow boxes of Dr.  Chase's Ncrvo Food the headacheH  disappeared, appetite improved and I  gained in health and strength. I am  very thankful for the benefit obtained  from tho uso of Kr. Chase's Ncrvo  Pood, for 'i a.m w#?ii ?.������2.in after two  years of misery."  The object of pain seems to be to give warning thai, something is wrong in the  human system. For this reason, when you have a headache, for instance, you should  honestly seek for the .cause.  Headache is not a disease in itself, hut rather a symptom. If you find othor indi  cations that the nervous system is exhausted���������if you are restless, nervous, sleepless  and irritable���������you may rightly suppose that to be tiie cause of the headache.  The headache warns you that with neglect of tho nervous system you later expect  nervous prostration, locomotor ataxia, or some form of paralysis. Wisdom suggests tho  use of such treatment as Dr. Chase's Nerve Food to build up the system, and thereby  remove the cause of tho headache, as well as prevent more serious troubles.  The use of headache powders is not only a dangerous practice, hut the shock to tho  system of drugs which are so powerful and poisonous as to immediately stop pain is most  harmful. Tlio relief is -merely temporary, and with this danger signal removed the  disease, which caused the headache continues to develop until results are serious. The  moral is, when you have headaches or pain of any kind look for tho cause and remove it.  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is not intendod as a mere relief for headache. ' Tt cures by  supplying tho ingredients from wliieli^ nature rebuilds and revitalizes tho wasted nerve  cells. Some patience is required for this reconstructive process, but tho results aro  wonderfully satisfying, because they are both thorough and lasting.  If you would be freed' from headaches, as was the wrHer of the letter quoted above,  put Dr. Chase's Nerve Food to the lest. Working, as it does, hand in hand with Nature,  it can nu more fail than can other of Nature's laws.  t������0 cents a liov, till (letters, or Kdnum-  son,   Hates   &   Co.,   Iittl.,   Toronto.

First came the  seemingly well-authenticated story  that John Keen's opponent would  be an independent Conservative, of  whom these seemed to be some  willing to seek legislative preferment under semi-neutral auspices.  This was followed by a story to tho  effect that Mr, Keen, for some  mysterious, and likowiso unstated  reason, was retiring from the contest, while last week's development  was, to quote tho Kootenaian  verbatim, that "Robert Long of  Creston is frequently mentioned as  a possible Conservative candidate  in tho forthcoming provincial  elections."

I did  not put the account in myself, and it  was condensed so that the meaning I  wished to convoy was misconstrued.  Since the subject, of Great, Britain's  drink bill has aroused so much interest  I quote a little more of tine report  given. In Britain tho annual drink  hill amounts to 050 million dollars a  yoar, and these figures are very low as  others quote the drink bill at 822  million dollars a year. And a few  ytoai's ago tho revenue alone from the  drink was 150 million, so my figures  are the lowest estimate.  Harold Cox, a great iinancial authority, points out that Britain's debt at  the end of the war may amount to 10  billion dollars which, at 1J por cent.,  the rate of the great, loan, would mean  an Interest charge of 450 million a  year, and ovon adding 100 million for  pensions the whole vast sum would  still be much less than the annual  drink bill.

Red Mcintosh.  What does spraying do? Willit absolutely prevent ink spot and scab?  Absolute prevention was secured at  one plaee this last season by the. Ontario Fruit Branch in a demonstration  orchard of Spies at Paris. Five sprays  were required, but the hist imewas.su  late that the cost of wiping the fruit  more than offset any gain   in  quality.  It was found that the usual three  sprays recommended are not enough,  and a later spray is necessary. Indeed, the best results come from live  sprays, though inmost cases four were  almost as good, and probably the difference would not pay for the spray.  After three years' experiments, .the  other sprays have been abandoned foi  commercial work in favor of the lime  sulphur mixture combined with arsenate of lead either in paste or dry form.

Thompson and with the addition  of some of the Baron strain brought  in from Victoria, has now almost 225  purebred White Leghorns, all of the  1915 hatch or older.

The birds' menu is wheat for breakfast; mash of bran and shorts and  wheat scrap for dinner, and more  wheat than ihey can eat for supper so  as to leave some over for a small feed  as soon as they are. astir in the rooming. Although not keeping an accurate tab on their thirst Mr. Moon is  of opinion that his poultry gets away  with almost a pound of water each  daily judging by the quantity he has  to carry to them.

The birds  from both hatches he figures will commence laying some time in October.  After careful study Mr. Moon decided  on his policy to specialize in White  Leghorns only, He finds for all-year-  round iayers they cannot be beat, and  that they stay with the egg production  business consistently���������being far less  inclined to be broody, or to want to  set, than the other breeds���������and if  given proper care and feed they make  a pretty fail* table bird, too.

It is entitled "The Fact  of Konopisht," and deals with events  alleged to have transpired immediately  preceding the   war.  A fortnight beforo the assassination of ihe Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his.wife, says the writer, tliey  were visited ut the castle Konopisht,  in Bohemia, by the ('einum Kaiser  and Admiral vou Tii*pit*,'.. Ostensibly  the F.mperor went to Konopisht to1  see the rose gardens. The story Steed  tells is that at Konopisht the Kaiser  and the Archduke made a secret compact.  The paramount, desire of the Archduke and his wife was to make provision for their sous, who were debarred by the .Haps.burg family law  from attaining imperial rank. The  Kaiser, it is said.* unfolded his great  scheme of the war.  Russia was to be  provoked to connect   with     Germany     and     Austria;  France   was   to   be   instantly   smitten  to    the dust, while the abstention    of  voursc|j������ ! Britain   was  considered  certain.    The  | Kaiser  proposed  to    reconstitute  the  *in������-   old Kingdom of Poland,    which, with  '*** j Lithuania  and    the  Russian Province  I of "Ukraine,  stretching from the "Bal-  | tic to  the   Black Sea,  was  to be tbe  inheritance of Francis and- his eldest  son.  For the second son a kingdom  was to be carved out, including Bohemia, Hungary, Serbia, the Slav  coast, of the eastern Adriatic, and  Saloniki.  German Austria, with Trieste, was  to pass to tbe present heir, the Archduke Charles Joseph, to be incorporated in the German empire.

British Columbia's Copper  Ths war has resulted in a great demand for copper with a corresponding  increase in price, and the importance  of British Columbia copper resources  were never so well appreciated. There  was a considerable increase in the  production of copper from the British  Columbia mines in 1915. and the total is now estimated at 52,000,000  pounds. The mineral production of  British Columbia last year, according  to a recent report, was valued at $26,-  763,000.

Four continents  black as supplying  jeopardy. In Eur-  Europe, as Napoleon called it���������the conflict is so desperate, and along so many lines of  furious violence, that; listening, you  can almost hear from anywhere the  boom of the guns, the .tramp of armed men, the cries o'f the wounded, the  answering silence of the dead. Millions of men have gone down into  darkness. Millions more may be destined to follow them. ' The lines sway,  now backwards, now* forwards, and  be would be a bold man who would  definitely -declare what would be the  ultimate result of this world battle.  "Somewhere in the British Islands,"  or its surrounding seas there is a  place which in the largest scale map  of the arena of war would not occupy  more than a minute fraction of a  pin's head. A few thousand men���������  less in total numbers������������������ than the casualties of a normal land attack���������  there rest quietly on strange machines wrought of steel and iron, all of  which could be packed into a few  square miles. But these men and  machines are the Grand Fleet of the  British empire. And the contents of  this fraction of a pin's head will decide tbe war, with the end coining  perhaps today, perhaps tomorrow;  but w*ith the end assured;  If our enemies could only obtain, as  a gift of the gods they worship, some  earthquake  or  volcanic    or  frightful  natural   upheaval,     how     inevitable  would be their choice.    Not London,  the heart of the empire; not the millions who hold the line from East to  West;   but just this  tiny spot in the  ocean  where a   commander,    always  watchful,  controls  machines  the  fear  of which  keeps  the  German fleet in  hiding   behind   booms   and   protective  mines, and whose existence gives the  freedom of the ocean, not only to the  armed forces of ourselves and our allies, but to the peaceful plying of the  commerce of all the merchantmen of  the  world���������except those  of  our  enemies.     The   German    flag    flies     no-  v.'lisr������*' in the seven  seas.    Th*3 German Tnerehantnian    and  great liners  have been banished from them like a  dream when one awaketh.   The whole  gigantic   oversea   trade   which     Germany has built up with, so much care  and pride���������trade which is vital to the  Welfare of her people, destruction of  which, means gigantic misery and ruin  ���������hae fallen like a ������reat hous0 to the  ground.     The   few   German   warships  which existed outside Germany when  war. began  have  been  hunted  down,  'and lie, for the most part, deeper than  ever plummet's sounding in the abysses of alien oceans.    The great German  ports,  once the  scenes of busy  life,  repose like  cities    bf the  dead.  The   great   German     mercantile   sea  lords   proclaim  their  bankruptcy.    A  few merchants and commis voyageurs  stranded   at   Monte   Video   or   Yokohama,  wait vainly for the  ship  that  will never come, and the order that  will never   be executed.    The British  navy is tlu one instrument, on either  side of conflict, which has performed  its  work with  complete  and  unchallengeable success,    lt has broken, as  by n, sudden  hammer-blow, tbfs whole  of Germany that lived upon and trafficked in deep waters.   It has rendered tho  German high  sea fleet as in-'  nocuous  in  its  biding  place  as  if it  , had    never  existed���������as  if  the   three  hundred  million  pounds  spent  in  its  construction   had   been   thrown   carelessly  into the  German Ocean.    And  slowly but surely, without ostentation  or boasting, like the slaying of a man  in the darkness by an unseen hand,  it has laid its grip  on  tho throat of  Germany, never henceforth to bo relaxed until the end oomos.    The victim may struggle, lash out with, hands  and feet, writhe  in agony, and in  its  struggles    damage     all     Kurronndbig  things:  but. despite the struggles tho  grip will remain secure. Hie pressure  continued and  intensified.    And  it. is  nil dependent on somo tiny aggregate  of ships nnd mon "somewhere  in the  Jlrll I nl i  Isles."  Tho long controversy between Admiral Mulum and bin crltica, passing  from theory to practice, scorns likely  to end in a vindication of his contention's more com plot o than (-von ho had  dnrod io anticipate.

At first they were exultant in the affirmation that .Britain  had been struck a blow in the vulnerable place of her armour.    Tbey rejoiced over the "Emden" making terror  of  the   Indian  Ocean,     over   the  German Pacific fleet  destroying British   ships   under  the   shadow   of   the  Andes at the close of a stormy-winter  day; in the various, destructions committed   by   armed     merchantmen   or  light   cruisers   in   the   various   trade  routes or the world.    As one by one  these  disappeared, and,  finally,  by a  daring   combination   of   strategy   and  effective   seamanship,     the     German  Pacific fleet was battered to pieces off  the Falkland Islands, they closed that  chapter with a sigh of regret. In the  second  chapter,  they  fought   desperately to encourage the spirit of their  peoples by talking of little but of their  "gallant  submarines."   It   is  not  too  much to say that the loss of the "Lusitania"   caused  universal  applause   in  every German  city and hamlet.  And  this, not from any special delight in  the slaughter of women and children,  but because they had promised to do a  thing, and had done it successfully;  because they saw in vision, one after  another,   each    British    Dreadnought  succumbing to the same attack. Lastly,  came  the  period  when  even  the  pretence   of   this   success   could   no  longer be maintained.    'The   terrified  islanders could no longer be depicted  as cowering in fear before the might  of   instruments  of the  air  or of  the  deep.     The   blockade,  closed   in,   and  as it tightened, there began to be exhausted   the   accumulated   stocks   of  oversea produce which at first made  that blockade only felt (as it ware) as  a slight tickling at .he throat which a  strong man could disregard. ThS sanest of the German naval experts, such  as   Captain   Persius,   now-   openly   declare that the decision on the sea is  settled, and in favor of England. They  acknowledge      that   the   allied   fleet's  were not only at the beginning vastly  stronger than those oi Germany, but  every   day increases  that  disposition  of strength.     The  immense  effort  of  Clyde and Wear.and'Tyne "is cresting  a new navy, and doubling the strength  of  our  searpower.    So  much  is  this  true that they have even begun to instruct their readers in the theory that  sea-power  does  not  much    matter���������  these readers having spent three hundred millions on the theory that "the  future   of  Germany   lies   on  the   water."    They announce that  they will  counter the sea blockade with an immense land adventure, and fling their  forces to the Persian Gulf or the borders of Arabia, or along North Africa  to   Morocco  and  the  Pillars  of Hercules.    But   wherever  they  go,  they  will  find  the  sea dominant  and  the  "terrified  islanders"  countering their  efforts, barring their only practicable  way to Syria or from Syria to Egypt,  transnortinn-      nrnjed   forces   whither  they "will, from Archangel to the Persian Gulf.  All the  while the oversea products  on  which  depend,   the  German vital  forces steadily decline. Rubber is unobtainable.    Copper and  similar metals  havo to be dismally- accumulate-.!  by scrapping private houses or melting down church bells.    Their cotton  industry and  wool  industry for civil  supply have almost ceased, and even  for  military   equipment   are   proving  steadily  insufficient;   while the  price  of tho vital articles of food has risen  to such a height as to cause rioting,  recrimination    between      class    and  class,     and   a   spirit    something  approaching revolution at homo.

Mon. C. V. G. Mastonnan,  London  Nation.  To Secure World Peace  Dr.  C.  W.  Eliot  Urges  U.S.-to 'Make  Alliance With France and  Britain  nr. Charles "VV...Eliot, presiaeut emeritus "** of Harvard university, has  contributed a thoughtful article to  the New York Times. It is captioned: "Should America Join a  League of 'Faith-Keeping Nations?'"  First of ail Dr. Eliot emphasizes the  point  that a. large proportion  of-tha  ! Americans   in favor   of  military   preparation have hazy ideas as to what  military preparation entails, and also  . as   to   the   purpose   to   be   served   by  SUCii    jjj.cya.ieii.10jj.       .-iuu    ij������    Lite    uiiici  hand, avers Dr. Eliot, the opponents  of preparedness are equally diverse  in  their arguments.  But what they are all agreed upon,  he thinks, is that the United States  can run no risk of the fate which  has overtaken Belgium, Poland,  Northern France, Serbia and other  portions of Europe. "And the most  satisfactory insurance���������indeed the  only accessible insurance���������is," ' says  the ex-president, "increase of tha defensive features in naval warfare���������  such as mines, submarines, monitors,  aeroplanes, aad swift cruisers���������and  ample provision of shore batteries of  long range guns. Most Americans  would undoubtedly be willing to pay  for this insurance, even if the risk  of successful invasion be admitted  to be very small."  Doubt is cast by Dr. Eliot upon the  point whether the American public  has made up its mind to "organize  and support an army in the modern  sense." But he is "quite clear that  if it ever does make up its mind to  do so the present army system and  state militia will have to be abandoned. In their place a democratic  army modeled more or less after the  Swiss army, will, in his opinion, be  necessary. This, says Dr. Eliot, would,  be "novel", to the average American  and his reason for thinking so appears from tlis following passage:  "The new legislation would have  to cover such unfamiliar ahd distasteful subjects -as accurate registration, watchfully maintained, of  the training, occupation and place  of residence ot" every able bodied  man between 20 and -10; mobilization, the proclamation of martial  law, the seizure of many kinds of  private property for --"military uses,  and taxation raised much above the  peace limits. Unless the crisis be  acute, this is not a job to be undertaken by congress in a Jiurry or  under the stimulus of either wrath  or fear. It is very doubtful, indeed,  if congress would ever adopt such  legislation except under the influence of serious disasters in actual  war. The Civil War brought no such  legislation. Great Britain even now  I does not adopt it."  The second portion of his article  Dr. Eliot devotes to a consideration of  the allied questions of the freedom of  the seas and the commercial rights  of neutrals in war time. In regard to  the freedom of the seas Dr. Eliot is  not satisfied that the task can be permanently accomplished by the British navy alone, even, making full allowance for what it has accomplished  in the present war "with a little aid  from France, Italy and Japan."

"I went to see Lord Northciiffe'  today,  in  his   customary  seat   in   his j  small but comfortable sanctum in the  Times office. j  "I wanted to talk to him about Can- ���������  ada, for he has seen a good deal more ]  Canadian territory thon most Can-;  adianSj. .       j  "I won't talk about compulsion,")  said his lordship. "That is finished.  We can now raise all the men we  want for the war by a business like  system that prevents injustice, and  provides exactly as many men. as  may be required on any given date.  The struggle was long and tierce,  and it was much misunderstood in  Canada, where you are deluged with  some pro-German ��������� views by -cable  and   otherwise   from   London.  "Let us talk about Canada be-���������  fore, during and after the war.-When  visualized by the world up lo August,  1914, Canada was a great grain pro-,  ducing country, and anywhere where  emigrants could be found there were  pictures of vast prairie wheat fields.  For the rest it was known as one of  several 'Lands ot Promise,' with line  railways and unlimited acres for ambitious settlers.  "It was a picture that was beginning to pall somewhat, we had seen  it and heard of it so often. As a  piece of material it  attractive, but material  much in fashion in the world in Jan-  and thirty years since' .the whistle  of- the transcontinental locomotive  was first heard on the Pacific.  "It is only a few months since  'Ypres' was on the world's tongue.  Today it looms in the world's his-  tory, and as the years go by it will  grow bigger and bigger. I have met  a few ..Canadians who are not particularly enthusiastic over the war. J  never met one who confesses he  would have stood.by and kept aloof  from this war, a war not of revenge  but of justice.  "Canadian charity too has shone  out like a great star in a dark firmament. The results have amazed  people in Britain. But Canada's, financial stability, her willingness to  help finance the war, are two' new  lights on the Dominion. For more  than a quarter of a century I have  been an enthusiastic visitor to and  an ���������admirer ot Canada, but I  less   her  efforts   have   surprised  "Sometimes in many parts of  ada   I   have   met  gloomy   men   who  thought the empire was tumbling to  pieces,   that    their  future    relations  were aii 'North and South,' not 'East  ;and  West.'    How--.wrong they  Avere.  \ The   future   trade   relations   are   ob-  : viously  still  more    'East  and West'  than ever.

Among the things that the Germans are rubbing their thick heads  about is this great miscalculation. It  is a mistake that has cost them very  dearly indeed."  Turning to the already historic  battles in which the Canadian forces  have fought and distinguished themselves,  Lord   Northciiffe  said:  "Ypres, Festubert, and Givenchy  aro battlefields which will live in the  future as greater than Waterloo,  throughout France, Great Britain  and Belgium and far away into Russia. Canada now stands not merely  as a nation of great commercial capacity, but as a people of immense  courage and vitality.

The experiences of the civilized  world . since the first conference at  The Hague have demonstrated that  peace cannot be procured or maintained for Europe or the Avorld  through international agreements,  however comprehensive' and rational;  because some strong,nations in Europe claim the right, to disregard any  agreement on grounds of a military  necessity, tliey to bo sole judges of  the necessity. Tho peace-desiring nations are, therefore, thrown back on  the study , of a less ambitious and  moro hopeful project���������the creation of  a small league of faith-keeping nations pledged to resist attack from  without, on any of its members. Had  such a league existed In July, 1914,  the present Avar Avould not have  taken place, oven if it. had contained  only throe powers���������Groat Britain,  Franco ami Russia. Seventeen months  of furious lighting and heartrending  suffering have made tho creation and  mulntenanc'0 of a largo league moro  than   possible-���������even'   probable."  As a Ichnl of secondary proposal  Dr. Idiot suggests that "for tho purpose of dofc-nding tbo United States  from for'-l'-n invasions" a smaller  league might suffice. Britain, Franco  and tlio United States would, in his  opinion, form mob a league. Haeh  .would be pledged to resist attack on  cither of tlio others. In support of  thin proposal tho doctor advances tlio  follow Ing:  "For tlif* formation of Ihn I. combination many strong motive-' conspire.
