It will  be the divine right of the people  which will have the most to say in  the settlement.  CVM. Q. puts an old verse in  slang thus: "The poor benighted  Hindoo; he docs the best he  kindoo; he sticks to his caste, from  first to last, and for pants���������������������������hc  makes his skindoo."  A Kansas newspaper says it does  not make much difference whether  the German Government is blown  up from within or without, but it  does,seem 'lo be a grave mistake  for the withouts to wait so long.for  the withins to do it, because it is  just possible that the withins are  waiting for the withouts to do it.  A light vote of the ratepayers of  Enderby was polled on the by-law  extending the electric light agreement between 'the City and the  Okanagan Saw Mills, last Monday,  but of those voting there was an  overwhelming majority in favor of  renewal.

When lhe appeal was made a week ago on behalf oi' lhe Halifax relief fund,' il was not expected that lhe contributions from this district  would overrun $300, in view of the many appeals which have been freely responded'.to in  the pasl lew months.   But up to Saturday night,  the advertised lime ol* closing, the amount was  very near hall* a thousand.   The canvassing commillcc having  lhe subscription papers in hand  arc lo be congratulated again on the ready response given by themselves, and the people as a  whole on lhcir greal spirit ol* generosity in time  of need.   Those good people of Grindrod arc lo  be especially congratulated on thc way they contributed lo lhis worthy cause.    Perhaps in- the  grand total oi* millions which has poured into  Halifax   from   all  parts   of   America,   the  half  thousand from lhis district will nol loom up so  brightly, but, just the same, these few hundreds  mean more sacrilice to the givers lhan as many  thousands would mean in many olher localities  thc most moderate 3ret expressed. Germany's  reported terms agree to leave the disposition of  Alsace-Lorraine to a plebiscite of the inhabitants; Britain to pay Germany for her lost African colonies, the money to be used for the rehabilitation of Belgium, Serbia, Roumania and  Northern France; thc Russian provinces bordering the Baltic Sea, the Black Sea and Prussia to  become independent under a German plan; Poland to' bc called an independent state under  Austrian suzerainty; disarmament, freedom of  lhc seas and commerce to be left to the peace  conference; Roumania, Serbia and Montenegro  lo retain their original boundaries with the right  of access to lhe sea being granted to Serbia; Turkey to remain intact.  Great Britain's war aims, as expressed by Mr.  Lloyd-George in the House of Commons, are  much-modified. The "war after the war" policy  enunciated some months ago has been dropped  entirely and now Great Britain is in* full accord  with President-Wilson's outline_of \yaf aims; she  seeks no territorial extension except that which  an "international conference agrees is necessary  to future security; while the German colonies  are regarded as non-returnable, because the  peace conference must consider the future security of the British Union of South Africa, yet  Britain actually is not desirous of further territory there;.Britain is also not now in sympathy  with the imperialistic demands attributed to  minorities in other Allied countries; she'agrees  that, certain territorial readjustments are necessary���������������������������but only for the purpose of guaranteeing  fuluiv security; regarding Alsace-Lorraine, Britain holds that if the Germanized population of  Lorraine desires to remain German, that section  should be allowed to be apart of the German  empire; in the Balkans adjustment of territorial  boundaries is held by Great Britain to be a problem for decision at the international peace body.  Great Britain supports Italy's .'demand for the  return of Italia-Irridenta, including Trieste and  the Trcntino. but not her claims for Dalmatia  and olher territory of this character; Poland, in  the Brilish point of view, should bc permitted to  work oul her own destinies, and llie same right  must be accorded Courland and Lithuania; regarding Belgium, full reparation after relinquishment is lhc policy insisted upon; and there  is lhe general approval of the plan for a protectorate of Christian powers over the Holy Land  henceforth.

' '"'  LOYALTY  PEACE  "CONVERSATIONS"  For  eign  P  Secretary BTdTourim a dc a very-mr"  porlaiil slalemenl in llie House of. Commons a  lew days ago when, in answer to a Liberal member's question as lo Great Britain's war aims, hc  said it was his belief that "friendly conversations" were better than a formal conference for  the discussion of lhe delicate mailers relating to  war aims and peace.  Following lhis statement, a day or two later,  Vmier Lloyd Geoi'ge restated Great Britain's  war aims. At Ihe same lime, statements come  from seemingly ollicial sources as to Germany's  new peace oilers. These statements and counter  statements have been going on some months.  They are what Foreign Secretary Balfour terms  "friendly conversations." They are preliminary  lo lhe formal pence conference which is on lhe  way. Fach side is jokeying for position; each  endeavoring lo hold lhe upper hand in lhe eyes  of his own people, yet anxious to reach an understanding with the olher. Diplomatically and  cainoull:  ligerenl  forts lo make lhe "bitter end" come quickly. We  of lhe Allied countries are told with religious  and military regularity lhat Germany is on the  verge of a collapse. And lhc people of Germany  are lold the same thing aboul England. In lhis  way the war parly in each counlry is endeavor-  keep up lhe courage of the people and lo  f spirit. At the same lime  vising from week lo week  each  side.    Gradually  the  I lie leaders of each side of the bcl-  governmenls are making slrenuous ef-  ige  A Happy New Year to all!'  These words are  ���������������������������nol lightly expressed; wc'men them in the truer  sense.   To bc "happy we must bc loyal: loyal to  the home, lhe community; '.the; empire. . But it  must be the right kind of loyalty.    "You see,"  once wrote Mark Twain in "A Yankee in King  Arthur's Court," "you see, my kind of loyalty  was lhc loyalty to one's country, not to ils institutions and office-holders.   The country is the  real  thing,   the   substantial   thing,  the eternal  thing; it is the thing to watch over and care for,  and be loyal to; institutions are extraneous, they  arc ils mere clothing, and clothing can wear out,  Tiecomc" ragged; cease TttrylrrT^OTnTortabler^cease1  to  protect  the body from  winter, disease and  death.   To be loyal to rags, to shout for rags, to  worship rags, lo die.forrags���������������������������that is a loyalty  of  unreason,  it is pure animal;  it belongs  to  monarchy, was invented by monarchy; let.monarchy keep it.    I was fronl Connecticut, whose  constitution  declars 'that all political power is  inherent in the people, and all free"governments  are founded on lhcir authority and instituted for  their benefit, and that they have at. all times an.  undeniable and indefeasible right to alhfr their  form of governmcnl in such a manner as they  may  think expedient.'    Under  that gospel,  the  citizen   who  thinks  hc sees   thai  lhe commonwealth's political clothes are worn out, and yet  holds his peace and does not agilale for a new  suit, is disloyal; he is a traitor.   That he may bc  Ihe only one who thinks he sees this decay, docs  nol excuse him.   It is his duly to agitate anyway,  and il. is the duty of thc others to vole him down  if they do not sec lhe mailer as he does."  Our home-cured hams and bacon are  always in demand.

Patriotism and  good business combine to make  the effort commendable. The need  for animal products by,"the Allied  armies and civil populations is increasingly great: the need for ba-  ��������������������������� con and pork products most of all  because they contain the largest  quantity, weight for weight, of  the animal fats needed for the  soldiers. -Bacon ��������������������������� contains   2,930  . calories as compared- with" ];100  for the same weight of beef, and  of only 670 in lean beef. Shrikage  in a dressed product is only 25 per  . cent of the live weight of hog  meat, while in beef, veal, mutton  and lamb it.is 50 per cent.  Canada's hog products in 191  totalled 125,000,000 pounds. The  Allies' requirements in the same  year were 1,260,000,000 pounds.  In other words, "the Allied markets alone could have taken ten  "times the total Canadian supply.-  Yet it is not only during war time  ?thatj:he market is great. Th'e,ex-  "portfrom Canada;in a five-year  period, which naturally covers at  least two years of peace," averaged only six per cent of the British imports of hog products.

''-  - Canada's Victory Loan  The latest returns in the Victory Loan campaign show a total  "of 782,714 subscribers, or one  subscriber for every ten people  in Canada. This establishes a new  record with respect to the proportion of the population of a country  subscribing to its war loans. The  previous record was held' by  GreatBritain, where, one jperson  in every twenty-three subscribed  to the last war loan. In the Liberty Loan campaign in the United  States, bonds were sold to one  person out of every twenty-seven  of the population. V:  In many cities, towns and  districts in Canada, the proportion of the population buying  Victory Bonds was - even -higher  than one in ten. In a number;.of  cases it was high as one in four. -  The achievement in connection  with Canada's Victory Loan,  while primarily due to the splendid spirit of patriotism that pervades the country, is another  evidence of what may be accomplished through press advertising  backed by an adequate selling  organization.  Prior to the Victory Loan campaign there were comparatively  few bond buyers in Canada. The  third Canadian"War Loan of last  spring,, which was the most widely distributed'bond issue in Canada up to that time, had only 41,-  000 subscribers. They, Finance  Minister deemed it essential that  many times that number should*  subscribe to the Victory Loan. He  assigned to the press the task of  educating with respect to the  Loan the great masses of the people who were not bond buyers,  and in most cases had only a very  faint idea of the meaning of the  term "bond" as applied to securities.  For several weeks before the  sale of Victory Bonds commenced  Canada's need for money to  carry on the war and to.maintain  her agricultural and industrial  prosperity was presented to s the  people of Canada in display adver-  t'sments in the press. Emphasis  was placed in these advertis-  ments^on the privilege and "duty  of every Canadian to assist in the  war financing of his or her country, and upon the fact that if  Canada's financial needs were to  be met the great masses of the  people would have to buy Victory  Bonds. The meaning of a "bond"  and the security behind Canada's  Victory "Bonds were explained in  simple every-day language. Similar educational work was done  voluntarily by almost all newspapers, and other publications  through their news and editorial  columns.  By November 12th, when the  sale of Victory Bonds commenced  the people had been educated  very thoroughly to the need for  the money/the security behind  the Loan and the reason why  every person who could should  buy one or more Bonds. The preparatory educational work was  followed up by personal solicitation' by a most efficient Dominion  wide organization -of .personal  workers. Concurrently with that  personal ^solicitation there "appeared in the press a series of  "selling" advertisments empha-  sizing^ the immediate privilege  and duty of every Canadian to  buy Victory Bonds,, and " many  editorials and news articles along  the same line were published' in  every newspaper.  The press publicly created an  atmosphere and a knowledge of  the situation that in addition to  securing large^ numbers of-subscribers without "personal solicitation made it possible for, the  personal, .workers'to do their  work quickly and effectively and  .with -infinitely Jgreater- results  than could have/Been obtained  without the educational, inspira-  tional^ahd; selling advertisments  irithe Rress- V. v. ;.��������������������������� *,v j -77,.y'V  "^Ariliejcbnclusion'bf" the cam-,  paign Sir Thomas White, in a tele-*  gram tdJ.-H. - Woods, President  .Canadian Press Association; Inc.,  "expressed^his sincere-thanks^f or  the fine spirit and 'splendid .energy shown by~the ,press_ and his  opinion'that the press had' every  reason-to congratulate itself upon  the character and effectiveness  of the* advertising propaganda.  the problem will depend on the  available':supply'-of.liquid capital;  and now, when huge profits  are being made in many directions, Vis clearly the-.time to  set aside the capitaLthat will be  required.  ���������������������������'���������������������������-: s .'."���������������������������:.

The evening papers announce  that Trotsky ��������������������������� has notified the  Allied Embasies that the armistice had reached definite results  and that peace negotiations will  begin and asking to participate,  or to state whether, they want  peace or not.  Up to this evening" the Embassies had not received the  communication and an informal  conference of the Allied diplomats is reported to have reached'  no decision.  The following article was written by Elbert Hubbard a few  years before the war clouds broke over Europe. One can read the  writer's  thoughts,  therefore, without thinking "pro-German" of him  " Elbert JIubbard  down "with the  Lusitania, when.she was '.'torpedoed by a German submarine. Il will  be interesting to watch and see in what degree lhis writer foreshadows world condilions after peace is again brought about.  or that he had. any desire Jo see a "German peace."  was onc of the prominent, men of the  world   to  go  After the War Problems  In a book' recently  published  by Mr. Wriel D'Acosta, London,  Eng., the writer refers  to the  problems   in economic   finance  which will, prevail" when peace  comes. He says the impoverish-  meruVof"Europe" by war means  thatthose who  have something  to sell will not readily find buyers, because of the general lack  of   purchasing   power,   .which  spehVa.'fall in prices. There will  certainly be a heavy demand for  money for purposes of restoration  arid the  replenishment of   exhausted stocksVahdr,the author  thinks that "money must become  yerjrV.clear   in the post-bellum  period, aud remain so for quite a  long time:" But the demand will  not be, what is called by the economists, "effective," except as regards absolutely unavoidable expenditure for the necessities of  the nation; and for this reason,  as: well as the temporary slump  irt business,,which must be expected, many will take a different  view.  An   American   authority  thinks that money rates are reasonably certain to decline   considerably with the   advent   of  peace, because,, allowing for the  demand for capital for reconstruction purposes, it will not be as  irresistable as is war's demand  for capital. And there is much to  be said for his opinion. The most  difficult problem will be that of  finding    employment    for   the  working classes who are no longer  required by the State, either in a  civil or military capacity,   and  that is where the Government  will have to display more intelligence that it has shown in dealing  with labor during the war.  It is  obvious, too, that the solution of  Still Has Troubles  Br'er Jim Grier, formerly editor  of the Slocan Record,- and- later  of the Hedley Gazette, is now at  Lomond, Alberta, and still has  his troubles, as the following  paragraph from a recent issueyof  the Lomond Press indicates:  "Owing to a break in the press  while moving this- issue is late  three or four days.

In like mariner the stickr  lers for .war, lift a wail of  woe and declare, "You -are  taking away ' our martial  spirit and giving us nothing  in return." In all spontaneous  criticism, no matter how absurd, there is a germ of truth."  The bugaboo o'f the bourgeois about taking something away: and giving nothing in return- is the  assumption that ^the thing  can really be done.

The army,  she  says, teaches obedience, decency, cleanliness,    system,  courtesy, a civil tongue, and,,  in fact, gives the   youth   a  general nioral and spiritual  keelhauling and setting-up,  which is otherwise not obtainable.

Borovsky, who is  conducting all the business of the  Russian legation at his offices in  the Swedish capital, although M.  Gulkevitch remains in possession  of the Russian legation building.  M. Borovsky said that Russia  was compelled to make peace as  she was not in condition to continue the war and it was for  Russia's Allies to choose whether  peace should be made separate  or general.  "We realize that a separate  peace would be bad for democracy throughout Europe, and especially so in Russia," M.Borrsky  stated. "We recognize that Germany, dealing first with Russia  and afterward with the Allies  would be able to get better terms.  "Moreover, a separate peace  without a revolutionary movement in Germany would only benefit the pan-German and military  classes in Germany. The Allies  in opposing peace are forcing  Russia into a separate peace, and  also forcing her into a position  of dependence on Germany . ...  If the views of the British labor  party were shared by the British  Government Russia would not be  faced by this danger. Our quarrel  is with the British Government  by clinging obstinately to its desire to defeat and destroy Germany, thereby postponing a democratic peace and forcing Russia  into her present situation."

Want to Know Why  London,���������������������������The successful attack by German warships on a  convoy in the North Sea resulting  in the sinking of 11 -vessels, as  nun ni i Pipf 1J n-t.h p.-House-^of���������������������������Com.  mons today, came as an uncom  fortable surprise to the British  public. It is expected to cause a  revival of the serious criticism of  the British Admiralty, such as at  the time of the successful German attack on a convoy of Scandinavian merchantmen in October. Added to this is the raid  made on the Tyne 1 ast Wednesday by German warships. As a  result of these two expeditions  one British destroyer has been  sunk, another seriously damaged,  five trawlers and eight merchantmen have been sent to the bottom  another trawler has been damaged and a number of men killed,  wounded and taken prisoner.  In lhe good old days there was  not any shortage of farm laborers,  because every farmer then raised  his own farm laborers.
