It isi>ointcd out that in California, for instance, that larger  towns    than    Armstrong    and  more "productive districts than  Ithe Spallumcheen have lost vir-  [. tually their whole white popula-  i' tion,  whose piaccs  have becn  (C taken-by Japs and Chinese.  At    present    the    Chinamen  here are content to simply grow  thc produce.    It lias bcen sold  [(through the regular commission  mcn.~_ This condition will,not  last' long. - Soon   the".Chinese  .'growers  will dispose of, their  produce through their own organization.    Thcy will be into  the market iiu competition with  the commission houses, wliich  now use them to force "the hand  of the wliitc 'growers." Our commission men arc beginning Jo  realize this.

If wedrift  along as we have ih the past our  growers and* shippers will wake  up some morning to find themselves at the mercy of the Chinese growers and shippers.   This  must not be.   It will not be if  our land owners and growers  co-operate in Keeping control of  the, situation.   The least inclination,  however,  to ignore  the  seriousness of the situation may  lead  to  what  men who  know  best most fear���������������������������thc ousting of  thc white grower and shipper  from control by thc Chinese.  Lct^us look at lhc olher side  of lhc situation. Supposing the  lands now in the hands of lhc  Chinese were in control of while  men. What would it mean to  Armslrong business and lhc districl? Instead of 2x4 shacks  ���������������������������with noihing about them but  two or lhree Chinese men and  piles of vegetable crates, wc  should havc white families,  wilh appropriate homes and  surroundings. We should then  havc thousands of dollars for  home expenditure, building up  of the community and adding to  the" prosperity of all. ,,  Today, while our shipments  of produce may be far in advance of earlier days, wc havc  not anything like the old-time  prosperity. Why? Because the  bulk of the produce is grown by  Chinese, and thcy do not spend  five cents to Jhe white man's  dollar.

The first essential for a vigorous national patriotism is consistent loyalty to-the" home community.  Not only the merchant but every single individual, in a community should energetically  proclaim thc "Buy-at-Homc"  slogan.  Every dollar spent at homc is  a dollar gained to thc district.  Every farmer and every artisan should bear in mind lhat  thc home merchant and home  businessman arc absolutely necessary for the development of  the town or district. '.  You cannot drain your home  community of currency without  killing it commercially and  making it an undesirable place  to live.  It is the amount of business  transacted in your locality that  regulates the value of your,  property. , ; S '  7 7-  Tlie' district that is most  strongly, intrenched with, community loyalty ,is the district  that will profit most by the. af-  ter-the-war revival. - *   ��������������������������� t--  Always- remember thai- the  farmer and the working 'man  and,jiie;office' man are - just as  dependent upon" the~ businessman as the business'man isyon  them.'VIt,.is a. strictly, mutual  game," and V should be "fairly  played. :.

Clark, there is given some idea of the work being  undertaken-by the United Farmers of British Columbia.   In part the report reads:  "Very good success has ben attained and we  havc a large increase in membership. Many new  c locals havc been formed -and progress has been  satisfactory. During part of the summer our  directors, after discussing the matter, decided to  employ Mr. ' Woodbridgc for a term to start cooperation and make an endeavor to organize  somc of the newer districts. This has just begun  to bear fruit nowV Also an effort was made to  establish co-operative associations for trading  purposes. A number of these have been started  and arc making favorable progress at the present  lime.  "Thc resolutions that were passed al the last  convention were forwarded to thc respective governments, lo lhc members of thc different departments of lhe Provincial Government, and lo  thc members for Brilish Columbia in lhe Do-  minion government. They alf received copies of  lhc resolutions and acknowledged them, and promised their liberal support. However, as yet wc  have had no favorable results from them  i  o  communication throughout the Province. We  were shut off on that question owing to the lack  of finances. We were told it was no use talking  unless there was money to talk-with, that nothing  could be bought if there was nothing** to buy it  with. VNothing" has been done with this resolution.  "The next resolution was with reference to the  government providing sufficient money* "to prevent the destruction by Hoods in the agricultural  districts. The matter was taken up some time  last winter when tlie destructive floods had done  considerable damage. Nothing was done. The  Department did not realize that it is the duty of  the government 16 protect their lands to a certain  extent. If thcy have no'money to do anything  further, to at least try to protect their own government property. It required a considerable sum  to replace thc damage done by the floods last winter.  "Next resolution was the stumping powder  question. We had hopes al the beginning of the  year that something was going to be accomplished in this line.

"No doubt, owing lo lhc war r  business along lines not relating to the,, winning  cf the war was left on one side, therefore our  problems havc becn sidetracked by the Dominion Government. Wc shall persevere, however,  and no doubt, in time, wc shall \vin out.  "Thc resolutions to thc Provincial Government  met wilh little better success. Our resolution  commillec spent considerable time in- impressing  on lhc members pf government- our various  needs. Probably I had better deal with these resolutions in the order thcy were sent up. llie  resolution urging on the government and municipalities lhe necessity of doing road work so it  cstrictions   all InS powder where needed.   He also informed us  lhat his son, who'is a chemist, was working on  somc formula for a cheap manufacture of powder, and that hc hoped to be able to announce  something along that line very shortly.* Wc havc  kept  at   that  question   stcadify  throughout   the  year, and nothing further has been heard of this  idea, and IJJ think as far as the government is concerned, thcy havc dropped that part of it.

Thc next resolution referred to thc Oriental cfiies-  tion. , Wc could not get a hearing on tliat question at all. The Premier refused to talk on the  Oriental problem at all. He. said it was like  striking a match to gunpowder.. The next resolution ,referred to the amendment to the Water  Act. I think a small section was amended-. Next  was with reference to the gopher pest. We re-  ccicved no reply as yet from the Pepartment of  Agriculture as to what had been done iri1 that line.  Our suggestions "were put forth and were promised consideration. ,        --  "The next resolution-referred to the Municipal  School System of thc Province, regarding thc difficulty of'the trustees to secure money to keep thc  finances of thc distinct going. The old system has  been changed, I understand, and the different  school boards havc their money paid over quarterly, so that at the end of each quarter the school  beard will get its quarterly allowance whether  the tax has been paid or not. This has been acted  upon. Next was thc resolution with reference to  the=pi-oduGtion-oWpodstuffsrsced=Avheat-and-oatsv-  This matter was taken up with thc Pepartment  and 1 believe seed grain is distributed' through  thc medium of thc Farmers' Institutes. This system was very unsatisfactory to the Government.  Thc Government did not get their money out of it  as fast as they expected, perhaps thcy had not  got it at all at that time. Jt was acted upon. Next  is lhat resolution with reference to the district  representative syslcm. This resolution was taken  up nnd took considerable of our time. The committee met thc members of thc Pepartment. At  lhat time John Olivcn was Minister of Agriculture. We look thc question up with him, and on  thc turning over of the office to Hon. E. P. Par-  row', wc had to go all over the work again. However, we have impressed upon Mr. Barrow our  particular system. He has announced that he is  putting it into force. Hc claims that at present  it is most difficult to get men suitable for district  representatives. No doubt, when our soldiers return, he will be able to get some of the efficient  men who were'in the Department before the war  who might he suitable for that work. We can  then look-for. speedy action.      V  "Ncxt resolution :was the Rural Fence Act. On  this matterr we have no satisfactory report to  make. It *was taken up first with Mr. Oliver and  later with Mr. Barrow, but nothing definite has  been arrived atJ The Way it stands, the government wishes the farmers to draw up a standard  which lhcy consider satisfactory, and submit it  to thc govrnment.

Resolutions came in to the Central. Roard  objecting to the way in which thc government  was making the new assessment. They simply  employed the old assessors who re-asscsscd their-  own work that had been cfonc the. year before.  The result was that these men did not feel lijte  coming down in their own prices, and taxation  rates were slightly higher. We hrought this to  the attention of the finance pepartment and a  new assessor was appointed, ft is just recently  that we got our taxaion papers only to Unci that  taxes and assessments arc really higher than they  were before.

Legislative  Loquacity
IP,- -
I*- .-.
Talk! More talk! Always talk! So, succinctly,
may .the-'proceedings of the legislature now sitting in the Parliament House at Victoria be de-
If the views, presented in thc daily newspapers
arc not false in perspective, the business being
carried through is infinitesimal, while the verbiage let loose in carrying it through is out of all
proportion to its value.
A month has elapsed since the session opened.
A month of priceless time, in view of thc circumstances of ihe moment; and���������yet the main use to
which this time has bcen put is to discuss dead
issues, and to engage in personal wranglings that
are neither dignified, informing, nor useful.
One would think, when considering how certain
representatives conduct themselves, that the main
object for which members arc sent into thc House
is to create trouble by upsetting the government
macliinc whenever and wherever possible. A
limited number of representatives seem to make
this their day's work; while the main body of the
legislature sit around careless as to what is going on. -    ���������
Of thc forty-six members of thc legislature
considerably morc than one-half seem to have
nothing to say on any subject whatever; while of
the remainder! only the small number seem genuinely anxious to press forward legislation for
thc general good. The others have plenty to say,
but thcy lack taJl sense of proportion." Petty questions of departmental detail are discussed as if
thc existence of the Province was at stake; while
vital economic questions involving the whole future outlook are left severely alone.
' Tlie need of a new spirit and a new party in
provincial affairs is becoming every day increasingly felt. The old parties have got into ruts, and
there is no crowbar big enough to piy them out.
We need new men, new; ideas, aiid a fresh conception of the place and power of thc legislature
in thc life of thc people.. Unless a very 'different
spirit can bc evoked from what is now evident,
arid somc serious attempt to tackle thc problems
confronting us is made, there is going to be
trouble in thc near future."
With thousands of returning soldiers pouring
into thc Province every month���������not merely former residents, but newcomers���������there is bound to
be a big unemployment problem to deal with bc-
for the winter is on. To settle it will bc no child's
play, and no mere" tinkering at it with the help'of
borrowed money is, going, to save the~ situation.
-^ It "will require constructive ideas ot\a high or-"
der. Videos .that, will Hake into accounts andythat'
will scek\to bring to "effective;use, a much larger
portion of the natural resourcesthan is, how being
utilized/ If this should involve interests-.that are
how bound up with-the natural yresources, then
these-in tercsts must go; 'For too Jong have those
interests-stood between progress and the people,

Tbe New "Soldier J������arty" is working hard, but
it is too few in numbers yet to undertake a\\ that
is needing to be done. - Nevertheless, tbe hopes
of tbe future are 'witb ik- and it is certain tbat
yvvben tbe day comes���������and may come sooner than
many expect���������it is to that party the-people will

Tremendous Credits Given
"Tbe exercise of thrift by Canadians is' as necessary to the restoration 'of.the normal life of
Canada���������a country undamaged by the ^var���������as
it is for the people of devastated France and Pel-' l������r no pleasures.
It is the condition on which financial and
industrial recovery is based. So stated .a, member
of the National War Savings Committee, British
Columbia Division.
"The nations, spent'by* the tremendous-expenditures of thc war, arc looking about for tlie way in
which tliC3r can most quickly and easily recover
their normal life. Therefore, Canada today is
endeavoring to teach licr people the gospel of
thrift. What is morc, through the War Savings
plan���������through War Savings and Thrift Stamps���������
shc is making saving easy. -     n
"Canada will get orders in Europe in proportion as shc is willing' and able to grant foreign
credits. Enropcan nations want many things that
Canada produces; but, though financially sound,
they must have credits, which means that if Canada is lo trade with them shc must sell on time.
If she does not do so, this trade will go lo other
"Thc Dominion government has offered a $50,-
000,000 credit to Britain for lumber; a credit of
$25,000,000 has been arranged for France to
finance manufabturcd and agricultural exports;
while another $25,000,000 credit has been arranged to finance othcr exports to Roumania.
"The War Savings plan will enable thc government to furnish these credits if the Canadian people place their savings at its service. The morc
War Savings and Thrift Stamps people buy the
morc money will then be available for credits,
thc morc trade will come to Canada and thc more
employment there will be. Besides, War Savings
Stamps are an" excellent investment, paying 4-V������
per cent,compounded half-yearly.
The Other Fellow's Problem
J. Ogden Armour, in Leslie's Weekly, sajrs: -
"The greatest need wc face today is that of understanding. Wc havc had too much talk about
'masses' and 'classes' and too little recognition of
, 33. The quorum necessary for the transaction
the truth that in thc main all men are very much
alike by thc desire to-live and to get the joys that
life should hc ,madc to provide. .Some succeed
better than others, but that is merely a^prank.of
Mother Nature. Shc makes no two things exactly
alike and yet she sees to it that thc"nian with the
hoe is little different from the man of Wealth. If
we but had a better appreciation bf the other
fellow's problems, it would make for - greater
contentment and greater progress. The time is
at hand when Capital must give'more thought-to
the workers' probems and" the workers must be
informed as- to th problems of business arid industry. That -we. are-making-progress;toward

The Dominion law against the selling of
butter without the words "Dairy Butter" or
"CreamerybButter"���������as thc case may be���������printed
on the butter wrap, is a blessing in disguise lo the
average farmer.
It is the duty of every butter maker to comply with the law in this matter. Some butter
makers have only a cow or two, and make so little
butter that it does not appear to them that they
caiT afford to have, their butter wraps printed.
They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000
butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this
class of buttermakers, we have printed up
a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. Thcy are
printed with the words "Fresh Dairy Butter" but
do not bear the name of the maker. However,
these wrappers fill the requirements of the law
governing this point, and can be bought in small*
quantities at thc rate of 65c a hundred in 100 or
50 lots. DIf you do not require" butterwraps inQ
larger lots, take these wraps in lesser quantities.

If tlie land is hard and harsh  and devoid of humus a cover crop of spring ve ch  or winter rve will help make it more firmabie  before seeding. A soil well supplied with humus  has thc facullv of aiding bacterial life in the soil  and this helps the nitrogen fixing bacteria to start  on thc alfalfa roots at once.

Wc havc found  lhat in well prepared land of good watcr holding  capacity twelve pounds gives an excellent stand.  We prefer seeding with a seeding attachment in  front of thc ordinary grain drill; this has a tendency lo put the seed deeper in thc ground where  moisture is stored. If you havc to seed by hand,  seed after having run a spring tooth harrow over  thc land and cross-harrow after seeding. Mark  three feed apart for irrigation and irrigate as  soon as possible and never allow the land to dr%  cut in thc least until the crop is well established.  Time of seeding differs in various localities. Fall  seeding in July or August has proved satisfactory  where there is a good snowfall, but where thawr  ing and freezing conditions prevail with land bare  for long spells, spring seeding is best. Wc prefer seeding alfalfa without a nurse crop unless  thcrc is a good supply of'water to keep the land  moist enough for the two crops.  Off two patches of alfalfa this year, one with  and onc without a nurse crop, wc took a thin  crop of oats, thc alfalfa was weakly and the end  furthest from irrigation will havc to bc seeded  again, thc latter wc clipped when about nine  inches high andin September wc cut a nice crop  of hay. The proper time to cut alfalfa, is-when  the new sprouts shoot just above thc crown and  from the shoots that havc already grown. Cut  about three or four inches above thc ground Ihus  retaining all thc new shoot, to itfakc a quick scc-  i ond growth.

Terry, chief  poultry instructor, will continue to have headquarters at Victoria, as heretofore.  Too Large Civil Service List  In Mr. W. A. McKcnzic's opinion thc Province  is in danger of being over-governed with too  many commissioners and too large a civil service  list. He said in thc House that while it was all  very well for thc finance minister to refer to thc  special assessors' work, and to imply that the  farmers would bc satisfied with their higher  taxes, yet when thcy looked over the civil service  list thcy would bc very apt to grumble.

What Strawberries Shall We Plant?  Strawberries arc cither grown for home consumption cr for market. While those grown  for market should he as good as those produced  fcr heme use, lhe fact is that in some cases those  grown for market are grown move because of  their productiveness and shipping quality thaii  for their flavor and general palatibijity.  Thc most popular variety, taking the whole of  Canada, is undoubtedly the Senator Punlap. Tbis  is a very hardy variety, and lhc fruit is handsome in appearance, good in quality; and is an  excellent variety for canning. It is desirable both  for homc use- and market. JJkc all varieties, it  has seme faults, lhc chief onc being that on account of ils making such a large nunr^v of pMnis  lhc fruit begins lo get small loo early in the  season in parts of Canada wherc dry, hot weather often occurs during lhe fruiting season; hence,  where there arc such "condilions somc other sort  i.s desirable, and in lhc Parsons Beauty and Glen  Marv there arc Iwo commercial .varieties which  I PAY CASH for POULTRY  and EGGS  I  t  I i  I  Shipments solicited whether  large or small.

Thc Parsons Beauty is bet Icr  in quality lhan C.lon Mary and the latter is nol  very desirable for home use, but both should bc  tried to determine which succeeds best in the  particular locality and soil where thcy arc grown.  The Williams i.s a fine berry, which is a very  popular commercial sort in Canada. It has a  white tip Avhich increases-its shipping qualities  bul lessens its value when it is to be eaten raw.  Splendid is a ralher early variety which has made  a record'"in Eastern Canada, and Bcdcr Wood is  another reliable early sort. The Marshall is one  of thc best in quality but must be grown under  high cultivation in Eastern Canada to get fair  crops and is not much grown on account-of its  light cropping, but on the-lower mainland of  Bnilish Columbia it does well and is one of thc  best commercial varieties there. The Magoon is  also a commercial variety which is also grown  mainly in British Columbia.  The foregoing are the leading commercial varieties in Canada although to these might be added  Sample, Pocomokc and Warfield as succeeding  very well in some places. For the Prairies, a  variety called Dakota, rather small in fruit but  very hardy, has proved one of the most reliable,  although Senator Dunlap also does well if cared  for.

Sharpe  Wholesale and Retail Butcher  Enderby  Douglas Durkin, writing in Retter Rusiness,  gives a vision of Canada that, unfortunately, is  not generally held by Canadians. "I am a Canadian," says he. "I began life as a Canadian by  birth.' I remain a Canadian by choice. I know  there are othcr countries in the world where men  are as free, as happy, as rich, as well-fed, as comfortably clothed, and as fortunate in the matter  of high opportunity as we are in Canada. There  are not many such countries, but there are'a few.  Of one thing, however, I am convinced beyond  thc slightest shadow, of a doubt: > there is no  country under the sun where men and women  with such advantages as ours are content to  place such a low valuation upon their nationality  as Canadian are doing habitually. We haven't  yet begun even to take ourselves for granted in  thc world.  "Let us look ourselves over. It is quite true  that for years our country was of the backwoods  type, a country of rugged frontiers and great  lone plains where,the buffalo and wild Indian  roamed at will. We were once an outpost nation  tar removed from the finer influences of culture  and civilization. Wc were a race-of pioneers,  red-shir ted, shaggy-bearded, silent men who  hunted and prospected and fought-and struggled  for life itself against odds that were, grim and  overwhelming. In those days the men who came  to Canada looked always -backward along,.the  trail they had come to the far-off starting point  that lay thousands of miles away in older lands.  There were the homes, there the firesides they  longed for, there the- family cheer, there the  warm Christmastides and the mellow springtimes and the golden harvests, and everything  that makes a man's life worth the living. In  these days Canada was a wilderness, virgin, untouched, forbidding.. Men came and were lost  to their friends for-years, sometimes never,heard  of again. . /        -     .~   s' .   S  "There arc men alive today who, cannot think  of Canada or things Canadian iii anybther way.  There are men in the world who still look upon  Canada as the out-of-the-way post-of empire.  They have-been, fed on magazine stories and  articles and cheap hovels on "Canadian .life" as  the penny-ai-aline romancer "chooses .to interpret  it for-them, * and-thcy. aTe content "to take such  interpretations..atVtlieir face .value.--'There are  men, who entcr^ Canada ^ithj; six-shooters, in  their hip-pbcketsrand rbd bandannas "in. their suit  'cases.'Zi'77'-^/\7 ^ 77:^ j V^-f^-,"-,- ., ��������������������������� S'-- ;~  - "Tlie^trouhle.ww'us allvas Canadians^ is that  we have ribf.-sent_ our imaginations; along very  much in advance;of the old,days of;tlie���������������������������cow-  pnncher and the buffalo herds,.   -',. -.",���������������������������*-  "Where do we stand, todayas a nation? * Jf we  are ratecj merely as "colonials" ������������������md bacjtwoods-  nien it is because >ye, have been content to. let  strangers wjio do -not >riow ns Jceep their. >ld  ideas of ns.

Today we have probably the richest undeveloped  natural resources in the world. We have a population as hardy and as full of health, as strong  mcntally-a-nd-physically-as-any^We=sent^an=army  to France that was. quite the equal of the best  fighting blood over there. We have a manhood  that is strong-limbed and intelligent; a womanhood that is cjear-browed and,, for the most part  unspoiled, by the subtile agencies that wrecjc life  in countries older than our own. We have broad  fertile plains. We have inland ^waterways and  coast-to-coast highways. We have forests and  mines that have never been touched1. We have a  hundred millions people waiting in Europe today for the" kind of opportunity and the kind' of  life they can get by coming to Canada.  "And yet as Canadians wc arc for the most  part without any view whatever of the future.  What .the man of affairs in this country todtiy  wants is a vision of the-future Canada. It is time  he was looking ahead at the na'tion' wc are  bound to devclope here in the ncxt generation or  two. If he looks he will sec great cities, crowding  the shores of the seas. He will see a nation with  three great outlets to the seas���������������������������one on the east:  one on the west, and one on the north. He will  see the markets of the world that stand open to  receive Canadian goods and raw materials. He  will see thc western prairies alive*with thriving  towns and busy communities, and the eastern  valleys throbbing with young life. He will see  great armies of men going out to thc fields in the  summen mornings, men who will have been  trained in the science of tilling the soil. He will  see hosts of efficient workmen filling tlie-streets  of the cities, workmen who are not the slaves of  a tyrannical industrial system, but workmen who  are co-operating with thc nation's leaders lo'the  upbuilding of a, country whose population is  happy and freedom-loving.'^  IN PRUSSIA OR CANADA ?  Louis DeGero, a German, and a prosperous  resident of Penticton before the war, but who  made himself so objectionable that he found it  necessary to move across the line, had a most  unpleasant and probably unexpected experience  when he' returned to Penticton last Friday.  Meeting Titos. H. Clarke, -an old-time friend, he  extended his hand in anticipation of a welcome  home. Mr. Clarke is a moving spirit in the newly formed Imperial League of Penticton, organized for thc purpose of ridding the district and  keeping it free of all enemy aliens. Mr. Clarke  then and thcrc told him what he thought of him  and his countrymen and marched him over to  the police oflice. Upon DeGero's request, police  protection was" offered him on the understanding  that hc leave town as soon as possible. Though  oft'ering as high as $100 for a trip to the line, he  could hot find anyone willing to take his offer,  and he was forced- to remain under surveillance  until Saturday morning when he would make  thc return by auto %stage". .  When the stage pulled up in figontof tlie post-  office on Saturday morning, .Mr. Clarke, who  was one of a group who had assembled for the  purpose^ordercd DeGero to get out of the car  and compelled him to kneel in the slush and mud  and, bare-headed, kiss a large Union Jack that  had been secured for the ceremony. He was then  stood on his feet and Mr. Clarke in forceful, language told the victim that all~ other Germans  trying' to conic back to this part "of Canada  Would meet with similar treatment. "The unusual ceremony '- terminated wheni. Mi*. Clarke  spat in the face of the Hurt, declaring, "There,  you hog, that is what I think of you," whereupon  DeGero re-entered the car to go back 'to Uncle  Sam's  territory.���������������������������Summerland Review. -   -   7 _  The Smoker's -Troubles  .;.TW bld;Scbtsmen;sai- by-tlie roadside,7tallung  and.;puffiifg 'awayr,at^vtheir/rpiptesV;V;: S7 vT y77'/  ' "There's no; muckle. pleasure ih;J'smpkin'i;Sa'nT;  vdy,"_said Donald.*_y.

Oat straw gave nearly as good results in feeding horses at light work as. timothy hay is tb?  conclusion of an experiment at fye Afisspuri f_x-_  periment station. At the North Pakota experiment station, it was found, that horses which  were fed oats or bran and shorts needed about  a^fourth-more^grain=-fccd7-when^fed^oat^straw  than when-given upland prairie hay.  There is the possibility of much good coming  to the world out of Russian ^olshevism. if it  does nothing more than rid the world of the one-  idea "ruling class"���������������������������the "inner circle"���������������������������as it were  ���������������������������it will have achieved a big thing. After witnessing thc prolonged contest at the peace conference between the representatives'of Pemo-  cratic Autocracy, on the one hand and World  Pemocracy on tlie other, one cannot blink the  fact that the real fight as to what power shall be  on top is yet to be fought.  After months of bickering and intrigue the  Peace Conference seems to have brought thc  world nearer thc brink of chaos than did thc  great war. These months of intrigue at thc peace  table seem to havc made thc world ripe for Bolshevism, and it is no longer a question of what  shall be done with tlie Germans,.but the question  in ruling circles is what shall be done to save us  from the masses.  There was a reason for Bolshevism in Russia.  There is a reason for Bolshevism throughout thc  world. And if thc cause is not remedied by the  powers that be wc shall sec a revolution that will  be world-wide, and when it is ended1, autocracy  will be no morc. Then, and only then, may men  talk of world peace and achieve a real league of  nations instead of a makshift.
