Ratification Resolution Is  Adopted by the National Assembly at Weimar   <:.  Weimar, July 9.���������The resolution  ratifying the peace traaty was  adopted by the German national  assembly here today by a vote of  208 to 1J5.  A Washington dispatch says that  ratification of the peace treaty by the  German national assembly removes  all doubt of the acceptance of the  terms by Germany.  The national assembly by ratifying the treaty, makes it possible for  the allied and associated powers to  raise the blockade.  Official notification was sent Germany June 29 that the blockade  would be raised when the treaty  was ratified. Placing this condition  on the raising of the blockade was  looked upon in peace conference circles as a sure plan for securing  speedy rat fication-by Germany.  The council of five--on Monday  decided to lift the commercial censorship on communications with  Germany simultaneously with the  removal of the blackade.  WINNIPEG VICTORY  OVER LAWLESSNESS  The calling   off  of  the so-called  general strike in Winnipeg is a great,  victory for the  law abiding  citizens  of  that  city, says the Philadelphia  Public Ledger.    The official collapse  of the strike comes as a natural consequence of the failure of   the   men  who   engineered   the strike to carry  out their threat to set up a soviet or  proletarian   revolutionary     government in Winnipeg, aud is one of the  most salutary things that have happened since Mayor Hanson in Seattle  faced a similar revolutionary   movement and secured the same kind ofa  victory for Jaw and order   that   has  just been achieved by the Winnipeg  citizens' committee.    While  the Seattle and Winnipeg cases  are fairly  comparable, they differed   widely in  certain'features, since in the case of  Winnipeg it was the large  body, of  citizens  which  took   tbe   steps   to  overthrow the radical attack on  the  liberties of the city and not one man  In the case   of   Winnipeg, also, the  strike which started on May 1 lasted  longer  than   the  Seattle strike and  took on very much more revolutionary character from the first, and   in  a   way   was   a   real class rebellion  against all constituted authority.  Naturally, a strike which involved  all the activities of the city, civic  and industrial, took the great body  uf the citizens by surprise, and it  was some time before they realized  the grave nature of the situation  that confronted them; but A'heu they  did there was no hesitancy in their  decision to refuse to let the radicals  dictate to the city, and the success  which has crowned their efforts is  a splendid tribute to their patriotism  and   to   their    organizing   ability.  When it is remembered that the  committee had to take over all the'  city departments, the post office,and  organize a transportation system  through'" the'use of 1000 automobiles  and provide for the delivery of milk  and bread and the necessitiss of life  through the voluntary cooperation of  nearly 20,000 citizens, some idea of  what they had to do to meet the  chaos of the general strike is made  plain.  Inevitably   a   strike  of   such an  anti-social nature as  the  Winnipeg  srrike was bound to fail, and it is to  be hoped in the interest of labor itself that the wild irresponsibles who  were   responsible   for   it   will    be  brought to account.  For the Winnipeg   strike   was  not a local strike.  On the contrary, it   was engineered  by the men who had been'conspicu  ous in the Seattle outbreak,  and  it  was supported by the alien  revolu-*  tionaries   in   this   country and  in  Canada. It was an open   attack   on  law   and   order and  representative  government, and in some of   its aspects was the most extreme effort of  this , kind   ever   planned here or in  Canada.    The,, frank avowals of the  radicals who  engineered it  as to its  revolutionary character,   their support of the bolshevik   idea and the  general   imitation   of   the    Lenine  ideas of class rule which led in one  instance to their  decision   "only to  supply the city water  to  one storey  houses," to the proletariats, all made  np a situation that  ought  to   have  been impossible and which   seemed  incredible.  That the end has come, and that it  came through the high minded ac-  tious of the organized citizenry that  refused to compromise with crime  against the social order is a thing  for which Winnipeg may take the  greatest credit. And the result is all  the more remarkable in that the  general committee of 1000 citizens  acted as one man, the overcoming  of the revolution being due to a cooperation that was as thorough as  it was self sacrificing. This exhibition of how a law-abiding citizenship meets emergencies is a lesson  which all communities may take  from the Winnipeg outbreak and  profit by it.

Chairman  Hague weli says Jhat_"such human  butchery, should not be,shown.where  our boys and girls may see it."  A federal Jaw  permits   the   inter  state shipment of pictures of  "boxing contests," but not "prize fights "  The line of demarcation is not always  easily drawn, but it  is in this   case.  The Willard Dempsey affair   was   a  prize fight, and moreover a particularly revolting prize fight.   Ringside  audiences cau not be said to  be fas  tidijus   in   their  humanitarian in  stincts, but the brutality of this contest   was   too  much for the Toledo  gathering.    Horrified  at the brutal  spectacle, men begged the referee to  stop it and there were clamorous ex  clamations that it was murder.  The sooner the debasing affair can  be forgotten the better. Probably  50,000 people saw the bloody en  counter, and the audience was com  posed of elements drawn from all  parts of the country who like that  s������ort of "entertainment." It is creditable to the nation that the attendance was far short of the promoters'  expectations. It would be to the nation's discredit if animated pictures  were given unprotesting exhibition  before audiences numbering many  millions.  Outdid the Air Service  The flying men were boasting a  little about the risks they had run  aud the falls they had survived,  and the meek infantrymen listened  and gasped. One of the latter, however, was not quite so meek as he  seemed. .  "You're not telling us anything so  wonderful," be chipped in. "Why,  I know a chap who never was in the  army even, and.yet he dropped seventy feet into a vat of scalding water  and wasn't a bit the worse. In fact,  went straight on with his job."  "Oh, chesse it!" said the flying  men.  "It's true," said the infantryman.  "They were pigs'feet,   you   know!"  ONTARIO APPLE  CROP LIGHT  Oniy 25 Per Gent Crop  Expected��������� Injury to  Trees Not Permanent,  But Present Situation Is  Discouraging  Not Interested Then  ^ Although it's now apres la guerre,  you may be able to get a laugh from  this story from the late front. It exemplifies well the Scot's love for  theology���������not always undiluted.  An army chaplain,meeting a Jock  who had taken a "drop to much,"  offered to guide him to tbe barracks.  On the way Jock became discursive.  "Ye ken, chaplain," he said, "mai  faither is a very releegiou3 man,  aud I'm that way inclined masel.'  NooI'd like to hae a bit argument  wi' ye on predestination."  The chaplain was much amused.  "Hadn't you better wait until you  are sober, Jock," he replied.  "Hoot, moo," said tbe Scot. "I  don't care a d about predestination when I'm sober."  Courtesy  There are no three words that can  mean more and tbat will get more  ibau "Piease" and "Thank you."  But they must be uttrred with  their full meaning.  As mere words of formal expression they are meaninglessand valueless.  Il is the spirit back of them.  A good deal is being said about  courtesy just now.  Railroads, hoiels, large stores and  business institutions generally, where  employeesform the only point of  contact with the patrons, are circulating preachments to these em  ployees.  They suggest meeting thediscour-  Probably no class of farmers in  Ontario is suffering greater discouragement today than the large apple  growers. Nor. are these without reason for a feeling close to pessimism.  Speaking for the whole of the province, the last profitable crop of apples was harvested in 1914. The war  completely upset the market the following year, and during the ������next  three seasons the crops were light..  In 1917-18 a winter   unsurpassed  in   two   generations   for     severity  caused   widespread  injury to orchards   already  weakened as  a result  of labor shortage  during   the   war.  This year apple growers counted on  at ieast fairly good yields and profitable   prices.    But- this  season  has  proved about as trying, on orchards  as did the exceptional cold   jn   the  winter of 1917-18.  A wet, backward  spring, followed almost in a day   by  tropical and continued heat, appears  to have caused   as   much   damage,  for the present year at least, as   was  caused by the arctic temperature   of  the   winter   before last.    There was  plenty of bloom, but there has been  such a poor   set of  fruit   that commercial   growers   in the   Whitby to  Brighton section, ,who had a 50   pf r  cent crop last year, are not counting  on over half of that of 1918.

FRIDAY, JULY 11,'1910  Cooperation  Imperative  How long will it be ere each man will learn  that no one person can exist without the help  of the other; that no industry can thrive unless all those engaged in it are of one mind  ���������.and-one purpose; that no community can attain any degree of living contentment unless  each person in it works for the benefit of the  whole? Instinctly we have cooperated,more or  less, along these lines'all our lives, but today  it is imperative as at no other time that we do  so, for conditions are changing. Business of  today is not the business of our forefathers.  No one man makes all of everything. The  workman has lost his former individuality and  has become part of a great manufacturing machine. Capital, too, has undergone a change-  Capital, if not used, does not' become inert; it  actually depreciates by a kind of erosion. Today, capital and labor need each other as never  before, and one can not get along without the  other.  The question is, how much shall.labor have,  and how much shall capital have? Certainly  neither/should have all the profit, for then the  other must starve and die. Perhaps it has required the Russian revolution to teach this  lesson to the unthinking. There the workers  sought to take all the profit of industry; consequently capital has died and there is no industry. The interests of the two are not identical, but they are complementary and in so  many aspects so nearly identical that, with  some reservations, they can be considered as  identical. This identity unfortunately has only  begun to be accepted. There is a feeling that  capital may conquer labor or labor may conquer capital and that the victor will not perish  in the triumph. But if we clear our vision we  can-not fail to see that modern business is not  a question of a man or men, representing capital, hiring another group representing labor  to work for them. Business is more than that.  Its success depends upon the full cooperation  of all its members, upon the acceptance of a  common policy and a mutual aim.  The more we reason this out, the more we  see the truth of it. A certain amount of ill-  will has crept into the fabric of the industrial  body and each and all of us must help to  eliminate that, which has the same effect to  prevent smooth running as sand in the bearings of the machine. If sand is present in the  bearings, it does not signify that anything is  wrong with the machine, despite what you  may be told. You very likely know your machine, and being familiar with it, you know  that it is all right. It has been running smooth-  lv in the past, and if it is not runningsmoothly  it is because of some particular cause, not because of some particular defect. It is an easy  matter to remedy, and you can do it without  interference on the part of those who are not  concerned about your welfare.  These are times when one can not afford to  sit still. For years methods of improvement  have been steadily evolved, and as their worth  have been proved they have been put into  practice. Problems to be solved today are perhaps bigger than ever, but they should be met  rrmly and settled with a steady head.  Frenzy  should not be allowed to dispossess us of ��������� our  commOn-sense. It should be remembered that  when evolution ceases, revolution begins. The  measure of success, whether it be in-the case  of an individual, a company, or a community,  is. in accordance with the flexibility shown in  adaptation to new conditions:  We are constantly finding ourselves face to  face with new and unprecedented situations.  But as they arise they must be dealt with. We  can not sidestep, neither can we plunge wildly  along. There must be evolved some plan of  how to get together, some plan that will be  just to all parties in interest-���������to labor, to capital and to the public.  Democracy means getting together upon a  mutually satisfactory basis of working, not a  levelling of everything standing. It is one  thing to get on a common level; it is another  to topple everything over and leave ourselves  smothered in the debris. The better way is  to adjust, to improve, to construct.  fz  There are many men in this country who  once had nothing but a small wage who are  today wealthy men. There are corporations  which started small and today are wealthy.  We are often envious of men who have risen  from poverty to wealth. We.relish scandal  about how they made it. While it is true that  many great fortunes have been amassed by  methods not worthy of imitation, it is not true  that moderate fortunes have been unworthily  acquired. It is also certain that the transition  from poverty to wealth was never accomplished by purely dishonest method. Letauy thousand men in our community who are poor  start out at the age of 18 and use dishonest  methods, and those who are not hanged will  be in jail before many years have passed. Dishonesty will not start one on the path from  poAerty: to wealth. If a man once secures a  financial start he may not be contented and  may use his money to acquire more, and  greater wealth than he ought to have. Self-  denial and the savings habit, or what is called  thrift, is at the bottom of every foundation on  which every great fortune was built. Men got  their upward start by having money saved at  the moment that opportunity knocked at their  door.  There are innumerable acres of land in the  west that are composed of little but volcanic  ash. The average easterner, knowing nothing  of this soil, would pass it by as hardly worth  consideration. But give it water and it will  raise pretty nearly everything that grows. It  is so with many poople. Let the light flow  in upon the wastes of ignorance and there is  no harvest you may not gather.  Contrary to popular belief, it was not submarines that destroyed the greatest number  of allied and neutral ships lost during the war.  Mines are thought to havp sunk 42 per cent,  submarines 38 per cent, ordinary mishaps of  the sea 16 percent, raiders, seizure and other  causes 4 per cent. But even though the submarines were less effective than people generally suppose, the 38 per cent of the lost shipping that they did destroy means some $i!,-  954,000,000 of damage.  The high price of beef is forcing western  ranchmen to a much better care of their cattle.  One ranchman owning 30,000 acres, en^aued  solely in raisng cattle,says his loss this year was  not over one per cent. Last winter the Can-  andian government furnished free transportation for hav to all raichmcn needing it for  their herds.  The tractor may have come, but the farm horse has  not gone. Thousands of them are still seen drawing plow  and harrow over tbe vast western ranches where grows  so much of the food that feeds the world.  ==^  yestraiii  Sometimes causes many and varied disturbances in seemingly unrelated parts of the body.
