Inatren i;f the C.iV l'.  flOhpilu). THE    NEWS,   CUMBERLAND,   B. C.  <t  Her  Vengeance  *���������***���������  \  By Basil Tozer  Ward,   Lock   &   Co.,   Limited  London,  Melbourne and Toronto  S  (ContinuPd)  "Do you mean he approves of lynch  law?" asked Hugh.  ���������'Says it is a noble thing; says tin-  uprising of an indignant people to  vindicate the sanctity of outraged  laws is the grandest sight heaven's  , eyes can rest upon. Why, a while ago  'there was a nigger murdered a white  girl down in Missouri, so the folk put  him in a tar barrel and burnt him  a,;,ve, and Editor Keenc was just  .pleased, lie talked about that afl'air  for mouths, and says he hopes the folk  about here would prove as no my true  to themselves and the sacred protection of our womenkind as the .Missouri  folk. Which I don't say we wouldn't;  for if a nigger touches a white woman,  burning alive is too good for him, by  gum! But this here Keenc, he seems  as' if he could not let the subject  alone."  "Does his paper pay?" asked ��������� Mr.  Hetherington.  "1 reckon it must, for he keeps'it on,  and always seems to have capital  ready for any new departure. And .f  L-2 doesn't raise a riot soon against the  niggers,' il won't* be his fault. Your  name   is   Hetherington,   sir?"  "Yes," said Mr. Hetherington.  "Why?"  "Why, just along now Editor Keene  is great on some nigger of that name  ���������Jim IIe*"herington. No one else  seems to know anything about him,  but Keene says hi 1ms information  that this fellow has broke goal in Mexico and has come up here after mischief. Keene says it would be" safer  to have a tigress robbed of its' whelps  prowling about the country than this  \here Hetherington, so of course all the  ��������� folk is mighty anxious to meet him. 1  don't believe "there is any such man  at all; it is r.ll one of Editor Keene's  crazy- notions. ,��������� Anyway, he has offered a.reward of 51,000-for authentic  news where this nigger Hetherington  is hiding, but no one ain't claimed the  reward yet." :.  "He is not a very pleasant namesake to" have," remarked Mr. Hetherington.  "Rather  a  queer 'coincidence,"  observed Hugh > with a faint uneasiness,  a feeling as if he scented danger from  somewhere    and yet knew  not even *  from which quarter it threatened. "Mr. ]  ��������� Keene must be rather a iirebrahd,   11  ���������j enington,   whose  face,  however,   re-  uiain?d quite impassive and indiffer-  . ent.  "And  there is a    grand-daughter,"  j c itinued Mr. Robbins;   "who comes  i now  and again    She passed through  day before yesterday, on the way to  visit her grandpa."  "AH, indeed!" said Mr. Hetherington, -while Hugh felt his face flush  suddenly.  "Was there a man with her, named  Boustead?" Hugh asked quickly.  "Xo," answered Mr, Robbins, "she  is always alone; but there was an Englishman giving some such name as  ihat arrived here this morning. There  was two cf them, regular remittance-  men to look at, and put up at some  drinking saloon in town."  This, by the" way, was Mr. Robbins'  way of referring to the establishment'  of his principal competition���������the Bill-  ington House, belonging to Mr. John  Billington.  Just then there entered a- rather  short, thin young man, with an eager  and intensely serious face, a body that  seemed to express unusual capacity for  endurance, and clothing; that was  shaoby to the point of raggedness.  "Hello, Tom!" Mr. Robbins greeted  this stranger. "How is things with  you?"  I'm dead broke," said the young  man solemnly; "can I run my face for  iwo square meals and a bed?"  "Sure," said Mr.* Robbins cordially,  "sit right down, and wade in; but you  are mighty late, and you vill have to  take wliai you can get. You know  the hours of the Robbins' House as  well as any man."  The stranger made no answer, but  sitting down, proceeded to "wade in,"  in a style that suggested this was his  lirst meal of the day.  "That is Tom Waters," said Mr.  i-ioboins in a whisper, "a very remarkable young man. . He has made his  pile and gone bro-e-twice already, and  is more tnan likely to die a millionaire  unless .the destroying angel gets his  dart in some time while Tom is struggling ,with the bankruptcy courts.  i*om," he ,���������alled, "I want you to meet  these'gentlemen���������they are both English, but they are quite nice.

"Pleased to meet you, gentlemen,"  said Mr. Waters gravely; "it ain't  Keene's Hetherington this time,  then?"  "No," laughed RobDins, "Keene and  h.'i escaped desperado at loose'are  getting to be a real jest.'-'  But, Huge-was not listening. -From  where he sat he could see a corner  of the verani.au outside and a man  who had just come to sit .here.  "Look," he whispered to hisj uncle;  "do you see that man? That is the  chap who acted the sham policeman;  1 can swear to him now he is white,  and I will bet anything he was the  sham nigger as well; 1 am sure of it,"  said  Hugh "with rising, excitement.

He hinted  tliat .there was something in Keene's  past life to" account for this obess'on;  'and after a-time Hugh changed the  subject by asking carelessly if Mr.  Robbins knew anyone in that neighborhood of the name of Siddle.  -  "Siddle?" exclaimed Mr. Robbins  Btaring, "why, yes, I reckon -why, we  all know Noah Siddle, aud the place  where tl|e liLtle* devils live."

Too Lucky by Half  ' Signing to his uncle., to follow him,  and saying something to Mr. Robbins  about getting a little fresh air after  their excellent supper, Hugh rose from  the table ana went out on the verandah that ran nearly the whole length  of the front of the hotel. The man  Hugn had noticed was sitting with  his hands in his pockets, and his hat  pulled over his nose, apparently taking  no notice of anything whatever,  tnough it might have been observed  ihat he seemed to stir slight'!" as Hugh  appeared. It happened that he was  sitting with an empty chair bn each  side of him, and Hugh, motioning to  his uncle to take one, himself sat  down on the other, so that they had  the stranger between them. Then  Hugh touched him on Uio shoulder.  "I beg your pardon," he said, "but  I think wo have met before."    ..  Tho man started, looked quickly  from one to the other, and sprang to  his feet as if Inclined to make a bolt  for It. But Hugh caught him quickly  by tho arm, and tho stranger submitted with a meekness-that'again might  have seemed just the least, trifle suspicious.  "So it is you, is it?" he said, and  then ho began to laugh,  "It is," answered Hugh, "and I am  pleased to observe that this time you  aro white,"  "Ah, yos," said the man, laughing  again, "I mado a dandy nigger, didn't  1?"  "And you havo tho Impudence���������" bo-  gan Mr, Hetherington in a rage, whon  ilugh checked him with a gesture.  "Wo must not begin with quarrelling," ho said, "though of coutro our  friend will understand���������by-tlie-byo,  may 1 ask your namo?"  "John Dodd," thn man answered  readily, "and I am sure I don't want  to quarrel, Why should ]? 1 only :,ld  what I was paid for, and If-you had  Llred mo first I would have dono'an  much for you���������moro, perhaps, for you  might not Imvo boon ho mean au old  skinflint yonder Sny, now, what was  that ptipor wo wont to such a doal of  troublo to got hold of?"

"That is tho kind of mini old  Noah Ih," ho declared.  "I boo," nald Hugh, and loolcod hesitatingly at his undo,  I'.i'.t Mr ilntliprlni'-rn'n hnd no  scruples ovor bribery, and broko out  at once,  "I.ook horo, do you want lo earn  $10,000?"  "Dooh a nigger lilto melon, or u  whito man whiskey.'" rotortod Dodd;  "hist show mo tho ohaiii'i), that Is  all."  "$10,000 Ih to ho earned," said Mr.  Iloihoriiii'ton, "by tlio recovery of a  certain pupor."  "That In straight lull-:, and 1 llko  straight talk," said.

Ho nodded, nnd wulkod away quietly Mr. Hothorington and Hugh tat  kolclng after him. and as they watch-  <d him wallilnR away ihey saw pass  that strange and ominous man -vhom  the hntoikoopor nnd described aB  I'ditor Kcoiio.   Uo looked   at then  carelessly, and Mr. Hetherington turned his head away with a shiver.  ���������That fellow has eyes like a dead  man's," h? said; "when I see him, I  teel as if I had just-touched a corpse.  "As to this Dodd," said Hugh, who  had been thinking deeply, "shall we  keep the appointment he has made?'"  "Why, of course," cried Mr. Hetherington. "What! lose just a splendid  chance of enlisting a man like that?  Why, it is a piece of most magaificenl  luck, meeting with him."  "Too lucky by half," said Hugh;  "whenever we are in doubt what to do  next, some unexpected stroke of luck  happens to guide us on our��������� way; it  gives me the strangest feeling, as if  some unseen hand were leading us,to  some destination.we have no idea of,  1 wish we had not brought Delia with  us.!'  ���������'Nonsense," said Mr. Hetherington,  in his robust way, "1 am not afraid, if  you are. As for Delia, I want to talk  to you about her;* do you really want  to marry her, or is it just the money?"  "It is not the mo -.ey," Hugh answered, Hushing; "I do not think that eith-  er Delia or I care about the money."  "You do, of course, but Delia does  not; she hardly, understands the importance of money," said Mr. Hetherington in grave and rather regretful  tones; "if I had forbidden your, engagement, she would have been only  the more st upon it. I cacided to  risk giving my consent in the hope of  her tiring of -/oil. She does, not seem  to have done that," he added thoughtfully, "but what 1 did not anticipate  is that you appear to be getting tired  of her first."  "I am not tired of her," said Hugh,  quickly and uncomfortaoly.*  "Do you want to marry her?" asked  Mr. Hetherington.  .  "No,"' said Hugh frankly.  "1 wish I knew what you were up  to,", said Mr. Hetherington, looking at  him with almost a touch of awe; "you  have something up your sleeve, - but  what it is I can't quite see. And ">  think I once thought you were a quiet,  slow, honest, trustworthy sort of chap  who, would make an' admirable head  cashier for'me; Lord"! what an escape  I have had.'-'  "Have you?" said Hugh, wondering whether to regard himself as complimented or insultedi".  "But I am going to speak to you  candidly," said Mr. Hetherington,  "and I can tell you, in the lirst place,  that if .you don't want to marrv Delia  you have been going the very worst  way.to work. If you had made violent  love to her, she would very likely  have quarrelled with you by now. As  aud  it is, you have only puzzieu"  piqued "her by your attitude of-indifference. "Unless you change your  method, or she does* get bored with  you, or something else happens, she  will be getting seriously and earnestly  in love with you. And if ever Delia  falls really in love with any one, it  will be a serious matter. Delia flings  all her energies into her passions, and  while hitherto that has shown itself  chiefly in*1 exaggerated tempers and  wilfulness, I have always felt that if  she did fall in love with any one be-'  fore 1 could get her interest l in more  sensible things, such as money making and winning a high position in the  world, that there would be "the-mischief to pay. So I just give you warning that if you are not careful," Delia,  in placo of the fancy for you she has  at present, will Ve getting a passion  for you."  "Ugh," said Hugh, shivering, "I  mean���������I wis'l you wouldn't talk like  that, uncle. It's���������it's���������disconcertin ;,  by Jove!"  "I am warning you," said his undo  gravely, "I havo been watching you  and Delia pretty closely, and 1 don't  believe you caro two pins for her, and  I believe her drat fancy for you''(hat I  thought would die out quite quickly is  strengthening into something deep, If  you aro thinking of any other woman  ���������as I have thought sometimes���������you  had bettor not lot Delia guoss It, She  would poison hor, you know."

"Will you kindly explain?" said  Hugh, epenKins to him,  Waters recognized the threat in the  coldly polite tones that Hugh used,  and his owii hand fell a: once, as  though by accident, on the pocket iri  which he carried.a piste.  "The young lady and I have been  getting acquainted," he said.  '-But���������" began Hugh.  ��������� "Be quiet, Hugh," said Delia, wiping  hoi* face and blinking her eyes..  , "I insist���������" began Mr. Hetherington  in loud tones.  "Papa," said Delia, "shut up!"  "It was only a little bargain between' me xand the younr; lady," said  Waters amiably, \ iking his hand away  from his pistol, as he began to understand that neither of the two Englishmen was armed. "She cr.me down  and asked where you were,-and'I said  I didn't know. She told me to go and  hunt you up, and I said I was otherwise occupied. She said what she  thought of me, and I said nothing at  all, which I know was mean, and I  apologized for it, being well aware  nothing' could have been more calculated to make any femal3 real mad.  So, she up and caught me a clip on  the ear, arid I offered to bet that if she  did that again-I would empty the milk  jug over her head. She did it again,  and I won my- bet, and now we are  acquainted we shall be reai friends, i  hope."  "Shall we, brute?" cried Delia with  a sudden spasm of rage, and seizing  the coffee pot she hurled it clear at  his, head.  But Mr. Walters had a quick eye,  and dodged; and before Delia��������� kntw  that her own attack hatl failed, he had  snatched up a dish of syrup "and clapped it on top of her head.  "We, are getting real intimate, wo  are," lie said genially, resuming his  seat. ,  Delia jumped up, hesitat3d, looked  round her with a wild air, and then  burst into tears and rushed out of the  room.  "Your daughter, sir?" asked Mr.  Waters of Mr. Hetherington; "I'admire her spirit, and am thankful she  don't wear rings," and he felt his ear  thoughtfully, the one whose color  seemed lately-to have increased in  tone.   <���������  "I'll swear she is, mad," gasped  Hugh'; "I'll swear she is." ���������   ..  "Not at all," said Waters indignantly, "she is simpiy a fine, high-spirited young lady, and clear grit all  through, and.if you dare say a word  aginst her, just come out on the vacant  lot behind this hotel, and I'll chew  you up in ' about two* minutes, so  there won't be enough of you left to  sweep the sidewalk down with?'  ���������As���������Hugh���������was-.-.about^���������t,wicOi: Mr.,  W*aters' weight, this was a sufficiently valourous offer;- the more so as,  since Waters had assured himself that  the others were not armed, he had  not- given the least hint j������ his own  possession of a loaded pistol in his  pockot. But Hugh, after staring at  him for a moment in sheer surprise,  could not repress a laugh.  "Confound your cheek," he cried-  "are you pretending to be her champion, when you have just been deluging her with milk and treacle?"  "That was only our little way of  making friends," said Waters calmly;  "though I am glad that coffee pot  wasted its sweetness on the desert air  over against the wall of the room.. Is  the young lady often like this?"  Hugh hesitated, and Mr. .Waters  sighed deeply,  "1 was hoping it was1 a privilege reserved for me," he said disappointedly; "may I ask if she has ever hove  a coffeo pot at you, Bir?"  ."Why. n������." ' admitted Hugh,  '"never."  "Then I am still ono ahead of you  ln her friendship, sir," said Mr, Waters, brightening up, "and I ahull mako  a point of endeavoring to soo hor  again. I never met a lady who Impressed me more' favorably on first  acquaintance," ho added, feeling his  ear again.  Hugh looked at Mr, Hotherington,  and shrugged his shoulders holplessly,  and they returned to tho verandah,  "I am Biiro sho is mad," declared  Hugh; "no sane woman could behave  liko that In a public hotel."  "Much she'* cares about Its bolng  public," retorted Mr, Hotherington.  "I romombor onco srie knocked a  man's top hat down over his face been uso ho had boon making eyes nt  her, and that was on tho Brighton  Pier, l had hotter go up and seo If  sho Ib all right,"  Ilo wont upstairs accordingly, but  found Delia's door locked, and could  got no answer when ho knocked, Cortnln Rounds of splashing suggested,  however, that sho was engaged on no  doubt iiocL'sHiiry ahlutioiiB-, and somo-  what relieved In mind, Mr. Mother-  ington wont down again to join Hugh,  ana set out with him to keep tho appointment with John Do'id.  pocket a bundle of bank bills, extracted five for $100 each, and handed  them to Dodd,,.who took them, looked  at them, and put them in his own pocket, and then suffered his features to  relax into a broad  smile.     ,  "Sir," he said, "I like you, and I  like your way of doing business. 1  have worked for Noah Siddle long  enough, and he has never once treated me white.and square like tliat. I  don't believe he has it in him. Sir, I  shall be proud to work for you."  ' "Very good," said Mr. Hetherington, "and if we succeed you shall have  the rest of the money quite as prompt  ly. - New, about that paper that'was  stolen from me. I suppose this Noah  Siddie has it?"  "Yes," said Dodd, "and hu is starting to experiment,with it as soon as  the two niggers I am waiting for have  arrived. It is something so almighty  private, seems he can't trust his own  folk. He will be good and mad they  ain't come, for l was to return tonight, so as he could see them first  thing in the morning."  (.To ue Continued)  The Quality  of the Soldiers  ty  Would Seize Wheat  British Trade'Unions Say Government  Should Seize the Wheat 3upply  The General Federation of Trades  Unions, in a document issued regarding the high prices of food in the  "United Kingdom, recommends chiefly  that the British governemnt take over  all wheat supplies as has been done  ,in Germany.  "The British farmer," the document* reads, "wouic"* suffer . no real  hardship or loss-* if the government  commandeered the whole home-grown  and unmarketed wheat at -L2 shillings  ($10.50) a quarter, and immediate action on these lines would tend to moderate prices." "  The manifesto chargea the government with failure to anticipate and  organize, against certain consequences  of the war and urges quick and drastic remedial action to avert a situation which is "becoming desperate."  The committee suggests a better  distribution of inc ming steamships  at ports other than London and Liverpool.   Continuing it says:  "Now that troubles have developed  the government must move, not tentatively, as -if the next century would  do, but immediately. ��������� The procedure  of prize courts must'be expedited and  all captured ships must .be valiwd,  manned and utilized .by the. state for  the. .purpose of transporting supplies  purchased directly from the producer  -and-such--supplies-must_be_placfijl���������ori  the market at prices to cover only  the costs and. distribution charges."

Bonar Law on the Splendid Material  in the British Army  In the course of a recent speech,  Mr. Bonar Law, the Unionist leader,  ,  made this reference to' the services ol  ihe army:  "Let mo tell you, if I may, an incident���������one of many-���������which was told to  me by a friend who was at the front,  and which made me realizb what this  war means.   He said that a battalion,  full strength, went into the trenches.  They stayed there day after day without'relief, resisting and resisting successfully, overwhelming forces whlcli ������  were trying to drive them out. At last,  the time for, relief camo.   They came  out of the trenches, but only a fourth,  of those wha had gone into them, and.  they came-out under the command of  one who had become their senior officer,   a  boy of  sixteen.    When    they  came out he formed up his men. * lie  gave them the order to march    and  '  then he burst into tears, and fell fainting to   the   ground.    While duty required  it he had done all that was-  wanted of him, but when it was over,  the strain was too much, and he broke-  down.   That is the kind of thing that  is being done by our soldiers everywhere,-and we are proud of this.  "It was in numberi, a contemptible-  little army, the; kaiser called it, but-  small as it was it is no exaggeration,,  if it is no disparagement to our French,  allies who are fighting so bravely, to-  say that that 'contemptible "little  army' saved Paris in the hour of her  need. But before we lu.ve done w'&.  may need, and we must have, not a.  small, but a great army, and we must.,  have it fighting our battles now, and.  we will have it.  "In the last few. weeks I have beem  present at two   encampments   where  soldiers are training,    2J.000 men in.  each,, and a liner body of men never  shouldered   a rifte in any country in.  the world,   lt   is a marvellous thing,,  the number of men who,under our arrangements have flocked to.enlist under the old llag.   There has been nothing like it.   No army.of this dimension   has   ever before been raised by  voluntary enlistment,    and   it is my  opinion that in no, "country    in    the-  world could such an army'have been;  raised by such means except*, in J.liis-,  country of ours.    Vile all know-- that,  the question of national service has.  always'been a debatable one, and to>  have raised it now   would not ' have?  -helped_us_to_get_the. men. - Evervr>niv_  knows it would never be adop'ed   in.  this country at a time like this till the-  old system had failed, but   .' we.had.  been starting with a clean sheet one-  might take another view,   f at least,  am not blind, and I am sure you are  uot, to the advantages of tho present,  system.   We know that under it some,;  who ought    to    have gone have remained here and we know that many  who ought not to havo been called to<  ;, / until, others had gone havo gone-  and are fighting the country's battles..  I don't,say   that   it   is the best arrangement, but at a tlniu llko this the-  best arrangement,!-, that'wh'ch works,  most quickly.

THE    NEWS,   CUMBERLAND,    B. C.  ���������fi  re  GERMANS HAVE PREPARED TRIPLE  UP OF DEFENCE IN BELGIUM  PREPARED TO MAKE A DETERMINED RESISTANCE  Have Employed Six Thousand Skilled Engineers and an Army of  Laborers to Construct Defences, which will Enable them  to make Three Successive Stands  Plans of the  Allies' in^rance  !  The correspondent of the London  Daily Telegraph, -writing from the  Dutch frontier, describes Germany's  triple line of defences in Belgium,  ���������where she will be able to make three  ���������uccessive stands against the offensive  of the Allies. The writer has inspected many works of defense, which the  authorities cannot hide. The work  carried on at all fortified towns is  well known as to its general points,  and information gathered from all  sources and sifted with care, the writer says, points to the following plan  of campaign:  "It is held, once a resolute often-  fortified and impregnable Antwerp  and along the Scheldt up to Boom, it  turns along the line of the ship canal  to Brussels. Then southward along  the line of the Charlerol, canal into  the headwaters of the river Sambra,  and Charleroi and from there via the  Sambre to the fortress of Namur and  the middle Meuse. To those who know  the country these two lines of defense  appear impregnable, but the German  staff has something else up its sleeve.  "Still taking Antwerp and the Rup-  pel as a starting point after passing  Boom and following the river Dyle up  to tho city of Mallnes, an already fort-  Benefits of War  ���������ive is offered by the Allies hoth on I ifled position guards the river, which  I  ti:  land and sea, that the Germans will  apeedily be obliged to evacuate West  Flanders. A study'of the map of Belgium shows that the principal river  in the west is the Scheldt, a broad and  ���������deep river, navigable , for its entire  course through tho country into  France. From the Dutch frontier  through Antwerp up to Tamlz it is  navigable to largo sea going steamers,  and - after that for large' barges. "' Its  course from' the estuary Is, roughly,  north to south, till the fortifications of  Ahtwerp aro passed, then it bears  ���������west to-Ghent and from that city its  'course goes again southward. Between  this part of the river and the coast  and practically .parallel with It flows  the Lys, a river of little importance  except in a wet season.  "From Gnent-to the,Dutch frontier,  almost due north, is" the recently-  opened ship,canal. The lirst serious  defense is expected to take the line  of' this canal from Sasvangent, on the  Dutch frontier, to Ghent, and to continue the course southward of the  Scheldt,, via Audenarde * Tournai,  (Jlount St. Aubert, behind the town  commands the country for many miles  ln all directions), Condo and Valenciennes. Then, via the reconstructed  and formidable fortress of Maubeiige  to Mezieres and along the line of the  upper Meuse to Metz..  "The second line will probably be  as���������follows:  ''Starting ln the west, from   the re-  Canadian Flour to Germany  runs between high banks, to the. still  more unhappy remains of Louvain,  and from there, still taking advantage  of the river Dyle, via Wavre to Namur,-!.there runs an extremely scientific line of trenches, much of it in/e-  inforced concrete. "     -"*"'  "This forms a barrier not easily  crossed. In front Uie ground is prepared with pitfalls, mined areas and  other traps for the unwary, though as  yet no wire entanglements have been  made except near Namur, where whoio  woods have been sawed down with the  trunks left rta*-ding about twu feet  high. There regular entanglements  are prepared.  "The country along this line Is undulating i-nd advantage has been  taken to prepare im placements for  heavy guns. Since August six thousand skilled engineers, as well as a  whole army of laborers have been  working on these defences. The forts  of Liege, Namur and Maubeuge were  completed in September and those of  Antwerp are also completely repaired.  "The third line, last mentioned, was  completed in September and now has  grown practically invisible. It is not  considered likely that a line farther  north will be prepared as ti*,e ground  is very flat and marshy, but immediately behina the, third line are very  good roaas and railways and it is an  ideal terrain for i* defensive campaign."  Will  Endeavor to Make the German  Retirement General One When It  Commences  Hilaire Belloc, writing in,Land and  Water, ol the battle before Soissons,  points out that there is a remarkable  similarity between what happened  there and at Steinbach in Alsace. The  colonel points out that a strong  French offensive was ordered with no  more than the troops who had been on  the spot against a particular section of  the long German line; that it succeeded and after a delay of 48 hours  at' Soissons and nearly of four days  at Seinbach' a very large German reinforcement arrived ana reversed the  French attack. The German counter  offensive, however, spent itself"*, and  could go no further.  The first conclusion drawn from the  parallel Is thus stated: ���������  "The Germans never knowing quite  where the French are going to attack  are In great peril at having tlieir line  Droken wherever an attack on a considerable scale is delivered. They will  not risk men, as yet, at any rate, In  trying to recover the initiative for  themselves and ln being the first to  attack:-' They are thus compelled to  wait for the French initiative. They  meet it, wherever a strong attack is  delivered, by hurrinyg up men from  elsewhere and the men so hurried up,  though coming in great numbers, io  little more than hold their own."  A further conclusion is' that the  Germans draw men from other parts  of their, line and not from large available reserves of new formations.  Mr. Belloc contends that the facts d.s-  closed show that the enemy.is put  to it, by the actual thinness of his  line. ��������� ..  He continues: "The problem of the  allies in the west is->not the problem  of gradually pushing back,an opposing-force under pressure to,, shorten  lines which are alreauy as'stretched  as they can be, consistently with being held at all, and when the compul-,  sion for shortening these lines shall  arrive it cannot take the form of  gradual retirements from one, line of  trenches to another close behind it.  It can only take the form of whole-  "ile retirement, either evacuating  Northern France and half of Belgium  or evacuating Alsace."'  Mr. Belloc also analyses the German report of the Soissons battle and  claims that the statement that more  than 5,000 Frenchmen were" killed,  and more than 6,000 taken prisoners  is nonsense.

Are Comparatively Cheap In Construc-  tion, But Most Expensive to  Run   ���������  It seems now to be a long way back  to August 4,' 1913, when the world was  startled by the news that Count Zeppelin' airship, Zeppelin IV., had smashed all world's' records for dirigibles.  She had sailed triumphantly from  Frederlchshafen to Mayence, and then  by Bale, Strassburg and Mannheim to  Stuttgart.  ��������� England was face to face with the  fact that the Germans possessed an  aerial cruiser capable of dropping  bombs on London, and then returning to Germany, and. then return-  to earth. And there were then no  aeroplanes capable, as now, of performing similiar feats.  The Fatherland went Zeppelin mad,  and when, a little later, Zeppelin IV.  came to grlof, a national subscription  of $1,500,000 was raised to replace  and to build more like her. Germany, If one can believe'��������� what ho  hears, Btill pins her faith to Zeppelins and still hopes to uso them effectively against the British fleet.  Ono of tho great arguments In  favor of Zeppelins is their cheapness  as comparod with warships. So far as  construction goes, this is true.  The newest of those huge airships,  which aro about the same length as  a lirst class batteshlp, can be constructed for about $1,000,000. Thus,  nine can bo built for tho money  spent on ono ureadnought,  But If a Zeppolin is cheap to construct, oho is anything but cheap to  mn. First of all, she must be tilled  with gas. The gas used is not common coal gas, but puro hydrogen,  which Is made at a factory and  transported in cylinders under pros-  sure,  Tho original Zeppelin IV. required  no loss than 17,000 cubic metres of  gas for each Oiling and this operation alouo meant an outlay ot $2,500.  No fabric has yot boon Invented  which Ib absolutely gas tight, and  tho valuablo gas Is constantly leaking away.

Then as to fuol, A largo 40-horso  motorcar will run about fifteen miles  to the gallon of gasoline A Zeppelin will not travel much moro than  one mile to the gallon,  Added to those difficulties Is tho  vulnerability of tho dirigibles before  gun lire, and tho troublo about ���������> I-  rectlng bombs from them with precision, as seen ln tho attacks on the  British warships at Cuxhaven the  other day.  They arc only capable of doing  groat damage to crowded, unfortlflod  towns, against which tholr only cf-  foctlvo work has beon dono so far,  Canada Getting Big Orders  **>   ! .������  Contracts For, at Least $50,000,000 In  War Supplies* Received  -   '���������    ��������� ^Already L_  How Canadian, industries are. benefitted by the war is seen by the'latost  government" estimates, which indicate  that 3,000 factories are busy with orders which total at least $50,000,000.  The prospects are also that the,demands for war material will be greatly incerased ln the future and there  are indications that France and Russia will purchase more . heavily in  CanadA in the future.  The war supplies for-which contracts have been let in the Dominion  covor a large range of articles. They  include rifles, bayonets, uniform:-,  boots, saddles, truck wagons, ammunition, tents, blankets, and many other  materials necessary to equip an army.  Great orders of shrapnel shells have  also been ' received by a number of  leading Canadian firms, and one estimate indicates that already 100,000 a  day are being manufactured in* the  Dominion with the prospects for an  Increased output ln the future.  Tho soldiers' pay is another big  Item ln tho war expenditure, for which  tho Canadian government will have to  provide large sums. Tu defray this  expenso and the others involved as a  result of tho struggle lt Is expected  that tho militia appropriations covering a period of from April 1 to January 1, of next year, will require $100,-  000,000. Should tho conflict last two  years lt is belioved that the Dominion  will have expended tho Bum of $240,-  000,000 In assisting tho empire ia its  struggle.

Lord Roseberry contributes a preface to a history of the "war by John  Bucham in the course of which j he  says:       '        ^  "At present we do not authentically  know even the subtle causes which  produced this convulsion over,half  the world. What is on the surface Is  clear enough, but it is whatsis under  the surface that matters.'  "I am reluctant to believe in a  diabolical and cold blooded ..cheme to  bring about ���������* ar at. this time. At  least this does not seem to be proven.  If war was being planned, it Was, I  suspect a longer and a slower match  that was burning for a- later explosion; and as regards our own part ,n  it one would conjecture that that was,  strangely enough, unexpected In Prussia, to judge from tho venomous and  iusano fury which has raged against  us In Germany since we entered on  the campaign.- .   ,  "We must then suspend our judgment as to tlie real cause of the war  till time and documents are given."  After discussing the present phase  of the struggle, Lord Roseberry continues: ���������  *  "We only see something of the first  act of the drama but it will not be  complete till we know the fifth. "If the  Prussians are victorious we need not  trouble our heads. That supremacy  means, it would seem, the -,nd of liberty, of civilization, and of religion, as  we have understood them to' be and  we shall be compelled to kneel before  the dragon of brute force. That contingency, however, we all exclude.   *  "But what will follow a victory of  the Alies? ."Will it be a cessation of-  the burden of armament and the s-  tablishment of a more balanced  equipoise of power in Europe? None  can tell but the answers to these  questions, to be unfolded in the fifth  act make it much the momentous  part of tho drama?  ' "Talk,'however, is easy and pleasant. "War is an accursed thing which  punishes the innocent and generally  the guitly go free, but our chroniclers cannot fail to enlarge upon the  incalculable blessing which the damnable invasion of Belgium has revealed to the world.  "The enthusiastic and weatherproof  unity of ..the British empire," that  would befworth any ordinary war, and  Is not perhaps, too dearly bought even  by such an' appalling conflagration as  this.  "And this unity, as it Is not the beginning, so it is not-the end. Bloodshed in common is the cement of nations and. we anl our sons may. look  to see a beneficience "of empire not  such as the Prussians dreamed, not, a  warlordship of other nations; not a  nightmare of oppression, but worldwide British influence which'* will Ve  a guarantee of liberty and peace, and  ���������whichT-hand-in-handHwith-our_alli'es.  in Europe and with our kindred in  the United States "should go far to  make another war mch as this impossible.  /'That -would be a crowning glory  to fight for, again for humanity such  as no other war has achieved, and  yet not an impracticable dream." *,  Huge Air Fleet  SOME GLOOMY FORECASTS OF THE  ECONOMIC OUTLOOK IN GERMANY  SERIOUS SHORTAGE OF FOODSTUFFS EXPECTED  Every Man in France is Determined upon Prosecuting the War  to a Successful Outcome,  and will Fight to Remove  Conditions which Endanger Peace  From-an entirely reliable source  is secured the following summary jf  views taken by leading" members of  the French government in regard to  the present conditions and future-  prospects of the war. Spring wlll.un-  doubtelly witness new developments  of the most important character  among them the active interposition  of Italy and Roumania.  "With these two nations throwing  the weight of their armies into the  balance on Uie sido of the all'ed powers," said a' cabiuet minister, "I expect that the war will end before next  winter."  From confidential reports obtained  by the French government by means  of reliable agents, it is ..believed *in  Paris that the German professions of  the soundness of their financial and  economic conditioLS are exaggerated.  The German industrial building Iooks  very well from the outside. Its facade is made to look very imposing,  but the building within is* an empty  'shell.  Authoritative forecasts of the economic outlook in Germany, chiefly derived from impartial Swiss experts,  are ��������� gloomy! A serious shortage of  foodstuffs is expected before the winter is out. '  With reference to the French", prosecution of the war a leading minister,  who, it must be remembered, * was  speaking not for the gallery, but con-,  fidentially and in' accents of deep conviction, said:  "Every Frenchman, whatever his  politics, is determined upon war to a  successful outcome. If we simply  drive the enemy out* of France w^  should have accomplished nothing.  We are not fighting for the reconques;  of Alsace anl Lorraine, or for the defeat of Germany, but for the. destruction of militarism. We do not,want  the complete downfall of Germany.  We have no right to enforce any condition on a conquered Germany which  we do not impose on ourselves. Frensh  and Britain must be predominant in  the settlement, if any permanent good  is to come out of this war. We both  value liberty. The British have a far  more deep-rooted conception of liberty  than the French have. The French  have more equality, but liberty is his  toric with Britain. The two ccuo-  tries must act with a* common aim  and with tne hope o������ establishing new  conditions in Europe.  "I don't look for the breakup of tha*  German empire unless it comts from  internal revolution, but we shall have* "  a right to remove the conditions which  endanger peace. For instance, Prussia should not be permitted in future  to exercise a preponderating influence  in tlie councils of Germany because *  as things are, Prussia is the menace.  The franchise iu Prussia should bo  made the same as in other parts of  uermany. Prussia should be rendered  impotent in a military sense, and its1  artificial majority in the BundesTath  removed so that parliament may havo  the deciding voice in the affairs of the  nation.,  "Then we must have a reduction in  armaments.   I don't see the millenlum  in  sight yet,, but  the  production ot  arms could ,be controlled by an international   commission   on which   tha-  prtsent    belligerents    and ' neutrala  would be represented.

In  spite of the secrecy thrown around  everything relating to war preparations, it is an open Becrot in military  circlos that the British government  has in its possossion a number of  Zeppelins and what are believed to be  far more effective a lot of huge aero-  pianos capable of carrying a crew of  21 mon, and arnnd with a number of  powerful anti-aircraft guns.  Prior to the war, the British array  aeronautic service placed small confidence ln tho Zeppelins and decried  the possibility that they could work  much harm.  During the recent raid of Cuxhaven, tho easo with which Zoppollns  woro driven off by tho British seaplanes was pointed to as evldonce of  tho non-valuo ot the German crafts.
