 1  s  Enderby, B. C, January 25, 1917  AND      WALKER'S       WEEKLY  Vol. 9; No. 48;  Whole No. 468  How Trench Comforts Contributed   ,  to Happiness of Boys at the Front  The ladies of thc Endcrhy Trench  Comfort Club arc in receipt of the  following letters from the boys at  the front:  Ptc. Victor E. Bogert expresses  himself in this characteristic manner: "I received your parcel on the  16th December and found ��������������������������� everything to bc useful, especially the  socks and sleeping helmet, and the  shoe lace was thc very thing t  wanted just then -as I had broken  one that very day; and the Oxo was  very handy for a cold I have got, as  I have not become climatized yet,  and wet feet nearly all the time. J  found it appetizing as a beverage,  ancl the socks were certainly warm,  and thc handkerchief certainly  was a good friend to my nose, and  the cigarettes and sweets were very  useful as they are scarce in France,  and thc cakes were a-good evening's  enjoyment among the boys of my  own billet, and 1 now wish to thank  you and the kind friends who so  heartily, worked to bring th������������������ boys  of-home in the trenches so many  happy thoughts of home so. far  , away."  Pte. J. I"). Nichol gives a touch of  the "real stuff" of which our Canadian boys are made when he says:  "I want to thank you and the kind  ladies for the "Christmas package I  received this morning." I want you  to thank Mrs. Gaylord, Mrs. Sowclen,  Mrs.  Speers,  Lily  Scott  ancl   Mrs.  Scott,   either  collectively  or   individually, for their kindness, which  was   very   much   appreciated,   not  only bv myself but by some of thc  other boys with whom I divided.  You will*also have to apologize to  Lily Scott and Mrs. Scott, for there  were   a    couple    of  packages   addressed to Sid Green, and he is a  long way from here, and I clid not  know his address, so, naturally, I  confiscated thc packages.  "We are 'somewhere in France ,  anl have been here for six weeks.  Wc have been in thc front line for a  .spell, but arc al present resting up  in billets in a small French village.  Like most of the boys, I cannot say  that I am entirely in love with this  gamc,but wc arc here for a purpose,  "arc goihg~t<r~try^ancHdo-your  little  'bit'.

Of course we have hardships to contend wilh, bul wc (the  hoys) do not wory as much as thc  mothers, wives, sisters, sweethearts  that arc left behind in Canada. We,  J am proud to say, belong lo a regi-  ' menl that has made a name for itself in  France,  and  we  new men  are trying to hold up that reputation. ...   . .  "Yesterday  being Christmas  eve  \ (Sunday)   our   company   had   our  'dinner,' ancl it was m sure  I sincerely hope that it won't be so  very long before we may come back  to you again."   o  ~We  iiMi , _ enough  dinner! when you consider that we  iire within range of Fritz.

In lhc ccnl  the hall was a hi  good  re of  and on it  to   you.  big sign  was  "A  Merry   Christmas  May the next one be with thc lolks  at home.'  Pte. Charles Murdock writes: I  received vour most welcome parcel  today and want to thank you all for  the manv useful articles it contained, and the trouble you have  taken in preparing it. Everything  is cerlainlv greatly appreciated.  The bovs in this unit fared very  well today, Tor active service, and  the patients enjoyed their Christmas dinner, too. I hope to be back  in Canada before another Xmas.  Lee. Corp. S. H. Allcorn: "Allow  me to thank vou and the many good  friends and contributors for parcel  received on the 2(ith December,  'which came as a very pleasant sur-  nrise, and was very much appreciated. And please convey my very  best wishes for a most prosperous  and happy New Year to all. II reminded me of good old Enderby,  where I enjoyed myself very much.  Ptc. IIVC. Harris: "I must write  and thank you and the other ladies  who so kindly helped with the very  welcome parcel I received, this  morning. It was a very great surprise and a very welcome onc, and  all the more so as our hut had been  qui; ranlined for measles, much .lo  our disgust" as we had escaped so  far and the quarantine was nearly  up.

We hear much about the  altruistic principle of Ihe "defense of lillle nations," and wc believe thai is what wc are fighting  For. But is there a sane man or woman conversant with thc politics of* Europe who docs not  know that these small nations have al all limes  been used by the larger stales dominating them  simply as pawns on lhal great checker-board of  empires? The little nations keep the big nations  "balanced" onc alliance against another.  Waterways have been characterized as "paths  of national destiny." From the beginning of lime  mankind/,has followed them to Iheir mouths,  fighting all the way if necessary. It is this imperial  urge lhat makes Constantinople, as Napoleon said,  "the key to the world," for the empire holding  the Dardanelles can shut the door lo all of Central  Europe to the open sea.   For this reason Russia  linopJc can be taken, flic success of~llTc~TcTfflnTl  Powers in taking Rumania will profit them nothing, for the door could' be closed against Ihem.  In "balancing" the powers of Europe, lhe importance of liic.se waterways has always been recognized. For this reason lhe mouths of lhe great  rivers have been placed in the hands of small and  relatively weak nations, and lhc big nations have  ever seen to il lhal these small powers were nol  forced-lo-relinquish Iheir hold thereon. Turkey  has been permitted to hold lhe Dardanelles because of lhe fear of lhe big powers of Europe that  ii" Russia should gel hold of il lhal empire soon  would bc master of.the Balkans and could dictate  to Central Europe. For similar reasons, each big  power fearing the olher, Holland has been pcr-  milled lo hold the mouth of the Rhine, Belgium  the mouth of The Scheldt, Rumania the mouth of  thc Danube.  The strong network of inlernalional jealousies,  born of fear, has perpetuated lhis policy for centuries. 11 has given Europe its "balance of power,"  which has meant nothing more than that one  sel of big powers pooled Iheir weaknesses in order  to fight thc other alliance should the occasion require. This "balance of power," thinking men  believe, has been the curse of Europe., It has  forced each set of nations to prepare against the  would appreciate any books, magazines, etc., for the reading rooiiij  and a few chairs would help ihem  materially.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 2c, 1917  PATRIOTISM���������������������������AT HOME  It surely is time the businessmen of Enderby  wakened lo the fact tliat if this, town is to main-  lain Lhc position it has held in the past as the centre and irading point of the surrounding dislrict,  they musl do more in the interest of the district  ���������������������������than lias been done in recent years. We must remember lhat Enderby cannot grow and prosper  unless we do'something to make the district grow  and prosper wilh us. There isn't any reason why  Enderby district farmers should have lo continue  10 pay to neighboring towns for thc enterprises  which should bc provided here.. Every day lhc  town i.s losing business, prestige and population,  and largely because we have neglected to lake the  necessary slops lo have established here cerl^iin  enterprises which every centre of an agricultural  community must have if it is lo render lhc assistance il should render to lhe man on the land.  Only lhe lown lhal looks back fails. There is  no habit which has so depressing an effect as lhe  habit of looking back���������������������������provided it does not spur  us on lo heller things. Thc future, means everything lo the man or-the community having the  pluck and initiative lo win.   The past is nothing.  11 can leach us little. We learn lo accomplish by  doing, nol by seeing somebody else do il. Because  ^ncVhiiiUiii^ alLf a il.,  It does not mean even lhal hc who fails onc lime  shall fail anolher. There isn't any logic in saying  lhal a thing has been tried and failed, therefore il  cannot be done. Perhaps the thing failed for lhc  good reason thai the very men who decry.it now  failed lo do Iheir pari lo make il succeed.  Anything can be accomplished if we arc determined enough lo see il accomplished and are prepared to do our pari lo accomplish.il. But noth-  i i rg ca ivl le a ceo 1Dpi is! fa I i I* I) usi ii cssh "1 eh wi IT assist in organizing a movemenl then fail to allend  lhe meelings bul content themselves wilh slaying  al home and criticising lhe efforts of Ihe men who  earnestly try lo make Ihe movement a success.  We have had loo much of lhis thing in Enderby.  Too much for our own good. And llie men who  are sulfering most from il are those who should  be the most ready lo assist���������������������������lhe businessmen  themselves.  There isn't much merit in the patriotism of lhe  individual who allows his home lown lo lag while  he kills Kaiser Bill several limes a day wilh his  mouth. If the cili/ens of every small community  would mobilize their resources and efforts to help  in lhe development of the community and in the  keeping up of its interests, and lhe interests of  those close al hand, lhere wouldn't be any need  of much fear aboul lhe welfare of the Empire.  ECONOMY IN EDUCATION  But in days of stress, with war prices prevailing,  and war conditions affecting every department  of life, demanding strict economy along all lines,  and with more serious condilions threatening, the  remarks of Auditor Crehan were timely and are  worthy of serious thought. Small communities,  such as ours, cannot Jong endure going beyond its  income in the matter of expenditures. Wc understand this community is but following the general  practice in allowing ils sinking funds to go unprovided for during war condilions. But in ��������������������������� so  doing this community, along wilh all others, is  bul piling up trouble for itself. These liabilities  must-be mel some day, and if wc do not provide  for them as wc go along wc arc uabic lo find ourselves in an unenvianic position when the payments have to be met. It was this point, more  particularly, lhal Auditor Crehan desired lo impress upon his hearers, and his reference lo our  expensive educational system was simply lo draw  attention lo the department in which he believed  wc could economize without seriously impairing  lhc work of lhe public school, lie pointeo to lhc  fact lhat it was not so long ago lhal lhe three  R's constituted lhe common scnool corriculum,  and he believed lhere were just as capable men  and women in those days as can bc found to-day.  Their education was more in line of thc every-day  need, and less diverting. Hc did nol think it was  wise I'or the small community lo neglect to provide for meeting ils liabilities in an effort to case  lhe strain on the ratepayers in war limes and al  the same time keep up an educational system far  more extensive than common school recfuire-  mcnls.  HELPFULNESS OF GOOD THINKING  Doubtless there are many, bolh teachers and  parents, who will not agree wilh Auditor Crehan  in his remarks made al lhc public meeting in  Enderby on the mailer of education. Bul what  Auditor Crehan said and intended lo convey, is  right in line with the the general economic policy  of the present day. Our educational system was  based upon prosperous conditions in the counlry.  In times of peace and plenty, our educational system was not more expensive lhan we could afford.  In an address before lhc Illinois Stale Teachers'  Association Supt. Coolcy said: "We arc realizing  that the three R's must bc supplemented by the  lhree H's. Wc musl train tlie head, lhe hand and  the heart."  There never was expressed anything truer.  And yet, in all lhis discussion of ihe substance  and means of education wc miss all reference to  habitual thought, il'has been staled before, and  cannot be loo frequently ainrmcd. lhal man is  made or marred ]>y his Jhnhit'ial thought. Docs  anybody, teacher or parent, trouble to regulate  lhc child's n\J.nd wilh reference to this need?  Broadly speaking, the attitude to life is, habitually  cither friendly or unfriendly, good-humored, or  ill-humored;'hopeful or fearful. . And. on either  side the dividing line the controlling characteristic  thought will lake shape and form and determine  the destiny of thc individual. To-day. perhaps  more than al any other period of thc world's history, there is need for the wise directing of the  child's mind. Particularly in our own counlry,  there is a tendency to slir up in thc child mind  the spirit of hatred for lhc nations how at war  against lhc Mother Country. No good can come  to thc child irom lhis leaching. The mind which  is taught lo hale is thereby weakened and made  narrow and bigoted.  The teacher in thc schoolroom can do little  toward cultivating a right thought in the child.  That is for.the father and mother to do. And it  will be found generally lhal lhc habitual thought  is acquired in" the home. Thc child imbibes it  from lhe parents. Once it gels firmly seated in  Ihe mind, the child's character is tolerably well  determined. If the home is disfigured by strife  the child will become frclful, the thought will occupy itself with petty jealousies, animosities and  fears. Willi such a beginning lhe child cannot  hope for a better ending. On lhe other hand, with  pea cc and ami.ly pcrvadin g I he. hou_sc,,.lhc, thought  will take on the color andcharacler of quiet Confidence. The thought of security is worlh much  to a boy. The thought of impending evil, if persisted in, will be his ruin. If a boy thinks habitually of whal hc can do and doesn't trouble his  head about what hc can't, he will proceed'to success. If his attention is habitually directed to  whal he can't do he will become accustomed to the  thought of feebleness and in lhe end will nol be  ���������������������������al)lc-t()--(lo--niucli--of-:-anylhingr-*'.rhis-*rule-appHcs*  in morals, manners and intellectual and practical  achievement. Prepare the child for lhc future by  giving him the right habitual thought.  THE WORLD'S GREATEST MENACE  "If all lhe warring countries could do away  wilh Iheir governingcliqucs and groups, for lhe  lime being," says the Review of Reviews, "and  select arbiters to propose a common-sense solution for all outstanding questions of dispute between nations, lhere would bc no further occasion  for bloodshed, nor would there bc any reason for  Ihe maintenance of large armaments. The peoples  of all countries, neutrals as well as belligerents,  are the victims of this senseless and wicked war.  The fact lhal stands oul is lhc utter unfitness of  that controlling machinism that wc call 'government,' lo repicsenl. the real and vital interests of  present-day human society. . . . The Pope is  justified in doing everything in his power to bring  the war lo an end. Bul if will then be his duly,  as representing something larger than mere nationalism, to join wilh all other agencies that represent the real welfare of mankind in finding ways  to protect civilization against ils greatest menace.  That menace, plainly, is Ihe unrestrained opera-  lion in the world of rival governments, engaged hi  criminal pursuit of the nationalistic or imperial  aims regardless of lhc righls and wcllbeing of  humankind al large."

With  the near approach of the opening of thc legislative  session, which will be the 18th of February, the  financial question is easily the most important  onc before the Government, and, while the preelection pledges made by the thc Government's  supporters promised a policy of living within  one's income, it is a certainty that that happy condition will not be reached this year. Every possible, means of raising revenue is being canvassed  by Hon. Ralph Smith, Minister of Finance, and,  while nothing has as yet been given out it may be  taken for granted that there will ber general increases in fees now being collected on the score  or more institutions, industries and natural resources which have hitherto proved the chief  means of producing revenue. The personal property tax rate will bc increased, at, least in.respect  "of the larger incomes, the recipients of which will  pay a greater percentage ih proportion' to-income  receiyed.than.formerly....The, "poll.tax," an im-  post,.formcrly/in .operation but .done saway ywith  three dr, four'years'ago," will, it is stated, be reintroduced. Then it was $3 per head of the male  population, including citizens, orientals, and in  fact every male within the limits of tlie Province.  Whether that amount will be fixed or a larger one  is a question yet to be decidel. There are other  opportunities for taxation which have not hitherto  figured as reyenue producers. Theatre, tickets offer some scope, but it will be upon existing  revenue producers that the main burden will fall.  . On the point of reductions in expenditures the  public works department will undoubtedly bear  the greatest pruning. For the current year ending  March 31 next there was placed iri thc estimates a  total of $3,025,000, of which $2,255,000 was for  roads, streets, bridges and wharves. Recently the  road superintendents, etc.,, were dismissed and it  is predicted the next year's work will be cut to the  limit, practically only necessary maintenance  jw_ork^beingamdcr-taken.==VictoriaXolonist._^===_=.  GOOD YEAR FOR TRUCK FARMER  According to thc B. C. Agricultural Journal,  edited by Win. E. Scott for the Dcpartmcn of  Agriculture, thc past season was a very profitable  one for the truck farmer: Thc potato crop was  not up .to that of last'year, but prices were considerably higher. Thc market for spuds has been  steadily rising, potatoes bringing a I thc present  time "around $35 a ton. Onions arc very high in  price, having steadily advanced until they arc  now realizing over $50 a ton. Prices for other  vegetables shipped to thc Northwest Provinces  have also ruled higher than last year. Corn was  generally poor throughout the Province, owing  to the spring and early summer being so backward. A considerable portion of the crop was  also affected by early frosts. Hay, alfalfa and  grain crops in the interior districts of Southern  British Columbia were heavy and of excellent  quality. Prices for these crops are higher than  they have been for many years, hay averaging  about $20 a ton, wheat $50 and oats $35.  There is a decided improvement in the growth  of the live stock industry, especially in dairy  cattle and sheep. The various creameries which  have been established throughout the Province  have done much to encourage the farmers in this  direction. All report a steady growth in cream  supply, and the demand for butter is far in excess  of the supply. Sheep raising is coming forward  rapidly. Mutton and lamb are high iri price, and  likely to continue so for some yeais to come.  Wool is bringing from 30 to 35 cents per pound.  Nothing will pay better than a few sheep on the  place. They aid in the clearing and are a great  assistance in keeping down weeds. They require  little attention, and will pay big profits on your  investment.  HOW ENGLAND'S MEN DO THEIR DUTY  Ian Hay Bcith, captain in thc British army, and  author of "The First Hundred Thousand," recently said" in an interview in the Chicago Tribune:  "War, when you arc living in its. red glow, isn't  a tragedy. It is only the ones who have no direct  interest in the war who are wailing about its privations. I never knew a woman who had sons in  the war to wish them out of it. One. does one's  duly toward civilization. , That is all.  "There's thc matter of taxation, for instance.  There is very little complaint in England about  thc taxation, yet it is terrifically heavy. England  is spending $28,000,000 a day on this war. Thc  countless millions which have gone into it and  which will go into it have to be raised some way.  England has made enormous war loans. She has  kept her credit good by paying promptly the interest, on her borrowings. To pay that interest  England has levied an income tax which amounts  to one-fourth of the entire income. If I had $1000  a year income I would pay to the war fund $250 a  -year.-.--. Arid the fax operates at the source���������������������������that  is,,you would not.get the thousand dollars; you  would riot have the pleasure of giving two hundred and;fifty of it to the cause. Tlie $250 would  be deducted "from. the ^thousand, before it was  given, to. you. This tax" is iii effect for any onc  whose income is equivalent to $400 a year or  over.  CAN BE NO MAKESHIFT PEACE  The people of the United States will, we hope,  be under no misconception if we say that British  hostility tp a makeshift peace is as passionate and  strong as American hostility to it was during thc  American civil war. It was then that President  Lincoln gave these peremptory instructions to his  Minister in London as to his attitude towards  peace meddling: '.   -  "If the British Government shall in any way approach, you, directly or indirectly, with propositions which assume or contemplate an appeal to  the President on the subject of our internal.affairs  whether it seems to imply a purpose to dictate or  to mediate, or to advise, or even to solicit or persuade, you will answer that you arc forbidden to  dcbateroiHiearroHn^any^way^to-rcceiverenter-  tain or transmit any communications of the kind."  That was how Lincoln stamped upon mediation  ���������������������������which Great Britain was far to wise and tactful  to tender to him���������������������������in August, 1862. That was his  "No." Our "No" may be more polite but it is not  onc whit less emphatic or determinedly meant.���������������������������  London Daily Mail.  When wc talk of. nationalizing the.individual in  defense of thc empire, that's quite the proper  thing. The individual can bc sent away to a  foreign land to be killed, and may never come  back! But when wc talk of nationalizing the  banks and other public industries in defense ol*  thc empire, that's very had: impracticable, socialistic and Utopian. In the present stress, just imagine if you can what the nation would gain if,  for instance, we had nationalized banking institutions. Since the war started lhe private-bunks  of Canada have lowered the rate of interest on  savings accounts to 3 per cent and raised the rate  of interest on short loans to 8 per cent. That is  all very patriotic, just as the other forms'of profiteering in munitions, transportation, foodstuffs,  etc., but it is just this form of patriotism that the  laboringmen of Canada are protesting against and  have decided to make an effort .to suppress.  If the Church's cars were unstopped she would  hear voices crying: "All old things are passed  away; you have come to the borders of the  Promised Land. The Kingdom of Heaven is at  hand. And they that were ready went in. If our  eyes were open we could look and wonder at the  revolution that is on foot in men's thinking and  being, of which this war is but a birth-pang. Wc  would look at it almost with terror lest we should  fail in any of our duty towards it. Many have  longed to see thc things that we sec and have not  seen them. Then speak unto the children of  Israel that they go forward."���������������������������Montreal Witness.  Tell your wife about it'  The easiest thing in thc world to  find is fault. It is the only thing in  the world, too, that can be found  where it docs not exist. That is,  you can find it in others. But in  yourself, though you bc blackened  with it, you can't sec it so easily.  If thc other fellow has a fault���������������������������and  as often when hc hasn't���������������������������you are  quick'to perceive it. You incessantly find fault with the weather.

It's either hard times, or else  some other people are making too  much money by the methods yor-  lon't know anything about and s  rlon't approve. Deep in your sub"  consciousness you are quite sure-  that money-making which you can'l  comprehend and can't imitate can't-  be honest.'  And thc government is all wrong,,  too, in your opinion. As a matter  of fact, you may confess to yourself  that you  arc unable to vote with  real discriminate n for reeve of the  village, but you think jou know all  about running thc nation and settling international complications.  You perhaps are loudly preaching for world-wide peace, when  you can't get along amicably with  your own wife.

S. Senate as  lhat which look place.on Ihe 22nd  insl., when 'President Wilson, regarding the Scnale* wilh ils treaty-  making power' as his counsellor in  foreign ..affairs, explained ��������������������������� why lie  believed lhe lime had come Tor the  world lo know America's position  and ' disc'usssed * lhe underlying  causes on* which hc believed a permanent peace of the world can be  maintained.  The President spoke solemnly, as  those history-making Presidents before him, and the Scnale chamber  was crowded lo hear him. He took  Ihe position .that Ihis war must be  elided before there * could:-be any  conferences relating- to world peace  and he believed .that, the United  States must assert the right'to have  a. voice in lhe world peace-making  conferences when Ihey take place.  The Uniled Slates, he said, could  have no voice in the making of thc  condilions upon which the present  war is to end, bul insisted thai these  conditions must he such as would  make possible a world peace worth  guaranteeing and preserving, , "a  peace that will win the approval of  mankind; not merely a peace that  will serve lhe several interests and  ���������������������������immediate claims of the nations engaged. . .-. Is. the present Avar a  struggle for jusl and secure peace  or only I'or a new balance -of  power? If it he only a struggle for  a new balance of power, will we  guarantee, who can guarantee, the  stable equilibrium of the new arrangement? Only a tranquil Europe  can be a stable llurope. There must  not- bc a balance of power but a  community of power; nol organized  rivalry, bul an organized common  peace."  To bring aboul such a peace, the  President said, it implies thai in Ihe  present conflict there must come a  peace wilhoul vie.lory, "fl is not  pleasant.-to say this," he added. "1  ���������������������������beg .lhal-..I may be permitted to put  my own interpretation upon it. and  that il may be understood that no  other interpretation was in my  thought. I am seeking only lo face  realities and to face them without  concealments. Victory would mean  .peace, forced, upon the loser, a vic-  resl, not permanently, but only as  on   quicksand.    Only   a   peace  between equals can lasl; only a peace  the   very   principle   of   which   is  equality and  a  common  participation   in   a   common   benefit.    The  right slate of mind, thc right feeling between nations, is as necessary  for a lasting peace as thc just settlement of vexed question!: of territory  or of racial and national allegiance.'  After   enumerating  some   of   the  conditions'upon which an enduring  world    peace    could    be    possible,  among which   he  mentioned   freedom of thc seas as well as freedom  ! of all  waterways; -co-operation  of  the  nalions  in  reduction  of armaments and navies, Ihesc lo bc held  wilhin the scope necessary lo������������������keep  order only, Ihe President concluded  by saying:  "I am  proposing, as il  were, lhal the nalions should with  one  accord   adopl   the  doctrine of  President Monroe as the doctrine of  lhe world.   'Thai no nalion should  seek to extend its policy over any  other   nalion   or   people,   but   that  every'people should be left free to  determine its own policy, its own  way  of  development,   unhindered,  unthreatencd,   unafraid,   the   little  along with the great ana"'powerful.'  "I am proposing'.that all nations  henceforth    avoid   'entangling- alliances which would draw them into  ���������������������������competitions   of   power,   catch  them in a ncl of intrigue*and selfish  rivalry  and  disturb their  own  affairs wilh influence intruded  from  without.   There is no entangling alliances   in    a   concert   of   power.  When all unite to act in  lhe same  sense and  with  the same purpose,  all act in the common interest and  are free to live their own lives tinder a common, protection.  "I am proposing government by  lhc consent of the governed; that  freedom of the seas which in inlernalional conference after '.conference--'representatives of the United  States have urged wilh the eloquence of those who are the convinced disciples of liberty; and lhat  moderation of armaments which  makes of armies and navies a power  'for order merely, not an instrument  of aggression or selfish violence.  "These are American principles,  American oolicies. We can stand  for no others. And they are also  the principles and policies of forward looking inch' and women  everywhere, of every modern nation, of every enlightened community. They are the principles of  mankind and nuisl prevail."  Adverse criticism as well as criticism   favorable,   is   made   by   the  press  of  Britain  and   of  all  other  countries.    Il is a speech lhat will  be  heard   around   the  world.    Thc  "Manchester Guardian,  representing  thc more thoughtful mind of Britain  says of Ihe speech': "II i.s a splendid  policy, nobly expressed.    How will  il bc received by lhe peoples everywhere?   Wc cannol doubt; joyfully  by men of; good will and .enlightenment everywhere; nol less joyfully  and   with   a   clear  perception  'thai  this  is  no  vision  of  Ulonia   but a  well-lhough!-oul  and justly-framed  scheme of a man in a greal posilion  and versed in great a flairs'..". ....
