FORKS., B, C, FRIDAY, NABCH 19, 1915  $1.00 PER I^EAR  DATE 0F4:IB������RAL  'ENT1 SET  Another enthusiastic   meeting of  ���������,   the Grand .Forks Liberal association  - was held in the committee rooms on  Bridge   street.   Wednesday    night?  President McCallum   occupied the  chair.    The'seatingJcapacity of the  hall was taken up early in the even-  .'   ing,  and  later  the ^standing   room  was taxed  to the-utmost.    A   great-  . ��������� -deal of routine business ' was   transacted and the politilal situation was  thoroughly discussed.   '"  " A   resolution   was. "unanimously  adopted fixing the dat* for  holding  the  nominating convention-in-this  -, city on-Wednesday, "March 31.  A campaign'committee "consisting  of the' following membeas was selected: Ed Hardy, B. Lequime, J.  A.-McCallum, G. A. Evan?, A. Web-  ster, T. A, Wright, Wm/Bonthron,  K: Morrison, F.J. Miller, Ed Shannon, P. H. Donaldson," Chas. Meg-  gitt. '  J. E. W. Thompson, of  Phoenix,  ,   was present and addressed the meeting.    Mr.-Thompson    stated    .that  , conditions were "favorable  in   Pboe-  . nix  for  a   big  Liberal majority on  polling- day. % After   making -a trip  to the coast-and to other   sections of  the province, arid familiarizing himself with .the sentiments of the elec-  . .tprate,. he. ielUperfectly: --.confident  that   the  Liberals   wonld .carry the  ���������   province by a large   majority.    The  men who remained   at   home,   said  .Mr. Thompson, had as grave a duty  to perform as those who went to the  front   and   fought   in   the trenches.  For the present generation to escape  the  reproaches  of  posterity, it "was  essential - that   the   wealth   of   the  province should be handed down to  the people, and not given  to speculators,    monopolists'and    corpora  tions.  The other orators at the meeting  were the chairman, John Donaldson,  \i. Campbell, E. C. Henniger and  suit   the electorate   on- accoiwit   of  '.'considerations mainly arising from  the crisis of the war."    Just   what  these considerations are have hot yet  -been made public. Tbe.great  struggle for the   maintenance  oi   British  institutions has called forth the   united patriotic and whole'hearted sup  port of the people of this  province,  and it is lamentable.that a political  leader should seek- to exploit   iV for  partisan   purposes.     This   attempt  will deceive no one.    The  public in.  British Celumbia remember well the  conditions that existed   long   before  the   declaration- of   war, and. will  recognize that the influences leading  to serious_financial   conditions   and  depressions existed then." This is an  excuse only, and-ought  to   be .regarded as too serious -for  reference.  .  Redistribution Measure  , The redistribution bill passed   by  the   legislature   has not been a sub-  jectof serious controversy, but it  so  changes the boundaries of the -constituencies as to make re registration  most desirable, instead of having on  the voters' lists hand-picked by government appointees, as must be  the  case-with tbe election- rushed upon  us in I hi f manner.    We.are satisfied  that in   the   present temper of the  public,   however, 'no manipulation  of the voters' lists will save the government from   well merited 'defeat.  We feel it a duty to call   public   at-  tion to these injustices.  '   The premier declared it to be   the  intention   of . the government to at  tack "courageously  and   vigorously  those ieat ures'of'provincial' develop"  ment already initiated and   still   incomplete, referring to   railway   con  struction both on the mainland and  island."    In our opinion this is his  method of   serving  notice upon the  public that should he again   be    re  turned to power he will consider'bis  electioh as a mandate from the peo  yle to further pledge   the  credit   of  the province to railways which have  already been given  assistance far in'  excess'of their actual cost.  A meeting of the   Grand  Forks Liberal association will  be   held- in   the'   committee  rooms on Bridge' street, W&dr,  nesday evening," March 24, for  the purpose of electing additional delegates'��������� to represent  Grand Forks in the  nominating '.- convention.     Short   addresses will also be delivered  by members, and  other business  transacted.     All'mem-  .uers,  and .those in sympathy  with the Liberal cause, are requester! to attend.   -  on'y be brought into force by proclamation of governor-in council and  may, themfore, be deferred indefinitely, must cast grave doubts upon  the sincerity of the government in  this'matte.r. ''^'/  We insist that any commission  charged with the operation ;>f an  act of this character should he removed entirely from the sphere of  partisan control. Otherwise it is  foredoomed to failure.  Government's Record  The government appeals   to   you  upon  -its   record, and  you   should  COMMITTEES FOR  TOLL FUR  A well attended direetors' meeting of the Grand Forks Agricultural  association .was held io Secretary  Hadden's office on Wednesday  evening, March 17, when prepara-  tsons for  this  year's  fall  fair were  ., . -       gone into.    The date of the fair was  make a thorough examination   into set for September 28   and   29.    The  that record.  It  has  assisted  the speculator to  lot of- minor ones too numerous to  mention.    They   all " took   an opti  mi3tic view of the   present   outlook  for the Liberal party in   British Cob  umbia.  THE LEADERS  MANIFESTO  .   H. 0. .Brewster, leader'of t^e Lib-  eral party of British Columbia,issues  the following manifesto to  the   electors of the province,   irrespective of  political creed, in.view of the   forthcoming election:    ���������  To the Electors: .  The aiding of transcontinental  lines of railways should properly be  left to the Dominion . government,  and the relief of British Columbia  from her present' obligations, especially in respect "to the Canadian  Northern Pacific railway main line,  might well be a subject for the consideration for the bolter terms commission.  Agricultural Act   -  The new agricultural act,to which  the premier refers'as ''an ernest" of  the popcy to be pursued by the government in th<r~future, contains a  principle to which he' was pledged  when elected in 1900, and on which  he renewed'his pledge in 1908, and  it has taken fifteen years to, in any  measure,   implement  his   promises  legislature.-   The deputy ministerof  finance   and   agriculture ' becoming  ex-ofticio members of  the   commission, th������ app liniment of a   superintendent \\\\<\   deputy-superintendent  by thr) lieutenant governor,' and the  fact that the personnel of the official  staff   of   the   commission has to be  approved by the lieutenant-governor  in council, togetherwith the further  fact that the superintendent  is  the  active member of   the   commission,  and  the  only one required to give  hia whole time to   the   work, shows  conclusively that the actual working  of the act will be controlled   by  the  government of the day, and  if   the  goveenment   of   Sir   Richard  is retained   to   power,' this'aot   will be  used for party purposes, and its failure   to ��������� bring  about the desired re  form in our agricultural   conditions  will be thus assured  There are many other objectionaI  -features in the act'. The salaries of  the commissioners should be fixed  by statute, and not be left to the  cprice of the lieutenant-governor-in-  council, who may fix the salaries at  an exhoritant figure, and given the  positions, as rewards for political  services, rather than because of fitness for the positions.  Another objectionable feature is  that it authorizes the loan of money  to those who intend to acquire land  simply for speculative purposes.  This element has a 1 really been too  well protected by the "government,  which has made it possible for them  to escape payment of either interest  or taxes, or indeed payment foa the  land so acquired.  Duty of Government  We. maintain that no poliey of  state aided agricultural production  can be successfully carried out so  long as the choice of agricultural  lands, accessible for transportation  facilities, are in the hands of the  speculative   holders,   and   that it is  acquire millions of acres of tbe best  agricultural lands in the province,  by means of powers of attorney in  defiance of the laws of the country  and in a manner proclaimed fraudulent by the courts of the land. It  has iji^ted and relieved these spec-  ulators! from . the necessity of payment of either principal, interest or  taxes on these lands.  It has purchased worthless lands,  including mountain tops, from railway corporations, after all the sections of value had been sold or reserved by them, and thus placed a  heavy burden on the provincial treasury.  It has alienated by license, which  carries with it tha right to purchase,  practically every acre of known coal  lands in ' the province, and has ignored entirely its pledge to reserve a  portion of--every .poal area to the  people. -        '   '  Ii has m ide no reasonable effort  to establish indusl.ual production in  the province.  It has failed in its enforcement of  the criminal laws of the province,  permitting the escape of murderers,  bank robbers, holdup men and  others of like class.  Its failure to enforce the re<u.la-  tions of the coal mines regulation  act in the'mines owned by the Canadian Collieries, and controlled by  Messrs. Mackenzie and Maun,  brought about the most serious industrial trouble occurring in the  province for many years.  It has been a fixed principle of  the government for years past to  concentrate power in its own hands  to strengthen its'political influence.  Every stssion a familiar clause  placing the control  of  legislation in  prize list will be considerably re-  vised. .Many communications were  received and dealt with.'

The   8un    feels   that   it owes it.s  readers an apology, or explanation,  for the shortcomings of  this  week's  issue.    The fact is, we had to finish  quite an elaborate  spring  catalogue  this week, and   the  newspaper end  of   the   establishment has been allowed to run itself.    But, even with  all   its  faults, we   cannot   convince  ourselves that it is not worth a frac-  I tion over one cent���������the price of each  copy   of   The   Sun   to regular subscribers.  If you don't  see  in  The .Sun, it  couldn't pohsibly have happened.  iimmjuimuMBBiaBMmiHi THE   SUN,   GRAND   FORKS,   B. C.  World' Conquest  Hew    Germany    Would  Conquer tho  United States  Some time' ago Colonel Roosevelt  asserted that he had seen plans or.  ' at least two nations showing how the  United States 'might be 'attacked. One  plan contemplated an attack on New  York, and Germany, of course, was its  author. Now it has- been discovered  that in his "Operations Upon the Sea,"  Freidheir von Edelsheim cold-bloodedly discusses the steps that should be  taken- in the event of war between  Germany and the United States. It is  'said that at. tbe ..-eginning.of,the war  this book was suppressed in Germany,  becaues it might give offence in the  United States, but, whether "the lid"  has been raised, or whether ihe Ger-  ' man government-would prefer to repudiate the boolcand its author in the  event of an American protest, the fact  is that- it has been translated into  Knglish, and is now on sale in both  languages in the United States. Americans who read the book ���������will'' be  strengthened in their hope that the  - British navy before the war is over-  will have reduced the German navy to  junk. .  "Our battle fleet has" every prospect  of victoriously defeating the forces of  the United States, ' widely dispersed  over two oceans. It is certain that  after the defeat of the United States  Meet, tne great extension of unprotected coast line and powerful resources  of that country would compel them to  make peace. There is no effective  method to force this opponent to relinquish its maritime operations, even  though there is only a trifling r.umber  of.American merchantmen except the  simultaneous blockading witn our sea  forces of American ports, which can  only be taken with heavy losses, while  our fleet demonstrated the actual limited worth of the unpacified American  colonies.".  It is a possibility, says the author,  that the United States would not risk  an engagement at sea, but that the  fleet would stay in fortified t arbors,  awaiting a favoraoie opportunity to  strike. Simultaneous action on land  must be inaugurated. On account of  the great size of the country, it would  not be possible to attempt an invasion  of the interior, but "it is almost a certainty, however, that a victorious assault on the Atlantic coast, tying up  tlte importing and exporting business  of the whole country, would bring  about such an annoying situation that  the government would be willing to  treat'for peace"." He estimates that "the  German invading force would be able  to begin operations within four weeks  of the time that "the battle fleet is  despatched, and states that the available American army ready for service  would only comprise 20,000 men. The  militia he disposes of as being unworthy of serious consideration.  -tie concludes: "It is upon the whole*  questionable .wnether there is anything to be gained in occupying for  any length of time so large a stretch"  as tho United' States. The fact that  one or two of her provinces are occupied by the invaders would not  alone move, the Americans to sue for  peace. To accomplish this end the invaders would have to inflict real mat-  r-rial damage by injuring the whole  country through the successful seizure  of many of the Atlantic seaports, in  which the threads of the entire wealth  of the nation meet. It should be 30  managed that a line of" land operations  would be in close juncture with the  fleet, through which we would be in a  position to seize, 'wunin a short time,  any of these important and rich cities,  to interrupt their'means of supply,  disorganize all governmental' affairs,  assume control of all useful buildings,  confiscate all war and transport supplies, and, lastly, to impose heavy indemnities. For enterprises of this  sort small land forces would answer  for our purpose, for it would be unwise  for the American garrisons to attempt.'  aii attack. Their excellently developed  net of railways will enable them to  . concentrate their troops iu a relatively short time at the various-recogni/.ed  landing points on the coast. .'But. there  are many other splendid landings, and  it appears feasible /for the invading  corps to conduct' its operations nn  these points with '. the co-operation  ni the fleet. The land corps 'can either advance aggressively against the:  concentrated opposing forces or  through embarking evade an attack  and land at a new place. As a matter of  fact, Germany is the only great power  which is in a position to conquer the  United States. England could, of  course, carry out a successful attack  on the sea, but she would not he prepared to protect her Canadian provinces, with which tne Americans could  compensate themselves for a total or  crushing defeat on the sea. None of  the other great powers can provide  the necessary transport lloet to attempt an invasion."  "Here, my son," said thJ father to  Willie, "what does this mean? Your  report gives you only fifty for arithmetic, and your teacher makes the  < omnient that you can't count straight  up to twenty-five. What tire yen going  to do with such .1 record when you  go into business?"  "Xow, don't, worry, father," replied  the son. "To count up to '.wenty-tive  isn't necessary for success in business  nowadays."  "Not necessary?" gapped the father.  "Nor, sir. I can start a f'li cent  e.ore."  Tom was Very careful of the truth;  punctilious, in fact. So when he got  married and the minister asked, him,  "Well, Tom, I suppose you feel yju  got the best wife in the world?" Tom  replied:  "I think, sir, she is God's handiwork,  but I shouldn't say she is His masterpiece."  Trials of War  ���������'Drive.Men Mad  W.N.U. 1033  Fighting    Nations    Establish    Psycho;  pathlc .Wards For* Soldiers' De-  ' prived of Reascn in Trenches  The various armies ljave had to.organize psychopathic wards in which to  care for soldiers driven insane in the  trenches. Many of them, it is believed, will be lunatics for life. Here is'a  phase of modern warfare which writers of melodramatic account of heroism will have to avoid. It isn't a pret-1 j  ty. thing to write about, and it is really dramatic. . It is Ibsen's "Ghosts"  magnified from the dimensions of a  domestic drama to the proportions of  an international one.  The - raving madmen are ' men  whose minds have collapsed under the  strain 6f-ph'ysical hardships in frozen-  trenches or under the mental strain  of momentarily expecting the descent  of: shells fired from unseen . annon by  an unseen enemy whose machinery of  murder is operated by gunners /for.  whom ariships have found the position  of the enemy. They'are paying' the  penalty for civilization's indulgence in  war. They are the unfortunate aiflict-  ed sons. ' '   .  - The charge of the Light Brigade lent  itself to the purposes of a pcet who  succeeded in making from his material  an inspiring bit of verse that celebrated courage rather than described  the actual occurrence. But even a  poet's fancy would find it difficult to  fashion heroic verso from the spectacle of two armies intrenched at a  considerable distance from each other  and_ prosecuting wholesale murder  through the instrumentality of mathematical science. A man riding horseback, full tilt, to a certain death is a  fine figure in literature. A man squatting in ice water and mud waiting the  probable arrival of a veritable "bolt  from the blue" which may scatter him  in fragments along the d'������c-h"jis better  material for the writer otv^jpressing-  realism than he is for tile' exponent  of military minstrelsy whose" function  is to make tbe "incidents of battle picturesque and the proof of valor stirring to the hearts of women and  children who never saw a baTtlefield.  A military madhouse filled with  heroes of yesterday who were missed  by the shells that disembowelled and  decapitated their more fortunate comrades should provide a theme for an  inspired pen, but the result would not  be of value from the point of view of  philosophers of the Bernhardt and  Ifohenzollern schools.  For how much" butchery in battle  and misery at hearthstones made lonely by war "are the skilled writers who  popularize the heroic spectacle responsible?- Tennyson is dead, but his  picturing of tlie courage of the 600 at  Balaklava will live as long as print.  How much more powerful than the  ruder music of the fife and drum is  the music of poetry which heroi/.es  the schoolboy to deeds of martial valor. The drummer boy does no more  than to bolster up the courage of the  conscript or volunteer when the banners are afloat and when "the trooper's on the tide." Military leaders in  the period in which minstrels shared  the bounty of Scotch chieftians and  sang their glory and prowess did not  undervalue the importance of the  harp and the harpist as adjuncts of the  recruiting service.  Perhaps modern monarchs and ministers, of war.and officers of the line  are not unappreciative.of the importance of "military literature. Surely  they cannot be. blind to the fact that  while the prose of General von Bern-  hardfean only defend war :is a. business enterprise, and defend it before a  limited audience, such writing as "The  Charge of the Light Brigade" makes"! t  a great adventure in the eyes of countless generations of men, and or  women, whose ideals are to a large  extent moulded ,by the literature they  read.  The more realism that is written  about the war now in. progress and the  less pretty fiction in verse or prose,"  the better for the cause of peace. A  new school of war correspondents  should try to bring home to every  reader of .the press the actual horrors  and-waste of war. The poets should  find their themes in the desolation, the-  destruction, the decimation that is being wrought. To writers of prose must  be left such phases of the conflict as  the psychopathic ward which follows  the flag. To them also must be left  the portable crematory which reduces  to a handful of gray ashes the dead  soldier who was as brave as any of  Tennyson's 600 heroes, but, like 1,-  000,000 others, lacked the services of  genius to immortalize him.

Christmas, in both 1854 and 1855, was  shadowed bv the Crimean War; ana  in 1857 the festival found Britain engaged in dealing with the Indian Mutiny and full of anxiety for the fate v,f  Lucknow.

matter 'for."Germany and her ally, as
these-are,great-.agricultural provinces.

is now almost completely in the hands
of Russia, produced, two years ago

bushels of. potatoes, and 22.84S.000
bushels of wheat. The loss of Austria-
Hungary he regards as most serious.
Eastern Prussia is' equally important, to Germany from an agricultural
standpoint. The crop deficiency, he
thinks, threatens most serious consequences' for these two countries. He-
also points out that the wastage ��� of
horses in both hostile countries "must

Mr. Hardy, Fellow of Trinity, who has
taken a great-interest in Ramanujan,

of sums had been prepared to test tne
boy's powers, each of which he answered within a few seconds. One
sum was:;"A chetty gave as a treat

Allied    Governments    Placing  Orders
For Troops .in the  Field
About sixty mmion dqllars, roughly
speaking, has been spent .in .Canada
by the Canadian and. allied govern-
mentY since the war broke out. The
cable estimating at" fifty millions tho
total,of orders by the Allies is somewhat exaggerated, but" they are constantly being placed,- and' that figure
will be reached before long at the
present rate.
The militia department is pursuing
the policy of ordering well in advance
the clothing and equipment required
for all the expeditionary forces, and
about all the contracts required for a
considerable time have now been'
placed throughout the country. Woollen and�� textile mills, clothing, underwear and saddlery-factories are working day and night and furnishing a
compensating stimulus to aii industry
which otherwise might be adversely
affected by the war.
. This, in addition to the assured
demand and high prices for increased
agricutural products, make tlie general outlook for Canada as bright as
for any country in the world.-

The other night I went to the Gurkha headquarters and asked for some
one to hold my horse.
One of tlie Gurkha guard was
awakened to do it. He did not know
what his job was to be, but he came
out prepared for anything, with his
kukri in his hand and his eves gleaming. He was quits disappointed

in Hhe boat, I believe. When- they
had been on tiie sea for tfro whole
days without seeing land they became very perturbed. "Without
doubt the captain of the ship has lost
his Avay," they said, but they counselled together and decided at last
that all was well.
Some one asked them if they had
decided how the captain knew where
to go. They led him to tlie stern of
the vessel and pointed to the long
wake of water boiling behind them,
and with a smile as broad as the
greatness of tlie discovery���"Without doubt he  follows  the  path."

love."   v

She looked at him doubtful after the
proposal. "The man I marry," she
said, "must be botli brave and brainy."
"Well," he declared, "I think I c;n

Egyptian     Newspaper     Points    'Out  Some   Difficulties of P'reselit  Situation  The French newspapers quote    the  Cairo   Arabian   uaily   newspaper    Al  Watam as  saying:  "From- geographical considerations  Palestine is to Egypt .what Albania  is to Italy or the Netherlands, to Great  Britain. Current events have proved  that'Bgypt can be one day or another  threatened from that quarter. Therefore it is absolutely indispensable for  Great Britain that this country should  become a neutral state or be annexed; But the objection to a British  occupation of Palestine is that if the  province opens a door on Egypt it  also holds the, relation to this country  of an exit, and the presence of a  British garrison in Palestine would  keep the inhabitants of Syria awake:  So it is better, to solve the problem  by neutrality."

(J I  POLICY   OF   WATCHFUL  WAITING  IS   NECESSARY  A Neutral Naval Officer Tells of the Difficulties   that the British  ��������� Fleet have to Contend with, and the Success that has  Attended their. Efforts  Ail Germany  .. -. Must Now Enlist  - There-has been a tendency lately in  the  American,  English    and  neutral  press to criticise "the    British    naval  strategy, and to imply that the British  navy-has not shown the ,efficiency to  be  expected  of it.    I wish  to show  what--  the- British  navy  has- accom-  '   pllstfed, - the   requirements of British  -> jiaval*'strategy,   and   the difficulties  under*1 which  the  British  navy  operates.' For what the-British uavy has  accomplished the British people should  feel the-deepest gratitude. .   .  ���������.,    '.Great'Britain   is   compelled (1)  to  ".-"watch with increasing vigilance,^night  ��������� "'and, day, the two'��������� outlets from the  " North" Sea���������many hundreds of-miles'  '  apart���������the; English   channel to.-the  south and the wide stretch of several  * 'hundred miles between Scotland-and  -Norway to the north;  (2) to maintain  a-patrol or line of scouts from Denmark to Holland, so as to prevent a  surprise- attack; (3) to ��������� stop and  \ examine all merchant shipping passing through those waters;1 (4) to convoy English troops and supply ships  to France;'(5) to chase and destroy  German commerce' -raiders; (6) to  watch all neutral ports in which  German merchant ships are lying;  (7) to prevent the invasion of England by Germany by guarding a tremendous' length of British coast line  jjo that the menace to the German  fleets transports, and supply ships will  be so. great that raids will be jew and  far between, .and so that the time  spent by the raiding ileets' will be insufficient to land troops, artillery and  supplies; (8) to prevent the Belgian  ports from being used as submarine  bases, and to assist the extreme left  of the allies on the Belgian coast; 1.9)  to keep several hundred trawlers engaged in dragging for mines laid by  ships flying a neutral flag, and to  lay mines themselves off the. German  coast.  The requirements of German naval  strategy are very simple, for at the  present time Germany can afford to  allow the. British to retain control of  the sea, .as she , still has sufficient  supplies on hand-to last until about  June,.1015. The. Germans realize, of  course, that eventually their main fleet  v.-ill have -to light. German .strategy  ��������� consist in -remaining under cover of  mines and\fortilications, where the  British cannot possibly reach them;  laying mines far and wide, particularly" off English- ports in channels or  localities much used by. British men-  of-war and largo vessels; keeping up  tho spirits of the German people, and  spreading panic through fear of- invasion among the civilians in England  by bombardment of-unfortified ports;  picking off, with submarines, one by  one, the British battleships. Finally,  when the preponderance;of the British  fleet has been reduced, and when  ignorant meddlers in parliament have  compelled the division of. the British  fleet, the plan is. to make a sortie and  co-centratcd attack on onejpart of the  British fleet with the entire strength  of tho German navy, -with .battleships,'  Rattle cruisers, light cruisefs, destroyers,- minelayers, and, if. conditions permit, with submarine's, Zeppelins and aeroplanes.1 At the same  ���������time, fast cruisers of tho Emden type  will slip" through the North sea m  the prevailing confusion, paralyze  '_  '  - ���������-������������������ ���������-��������� - / ��������� I  British'shipping and cut British com;  muuications with thei:- army in  France.  ��������� The difficulties under which' the  ���������British navy operates arc tremendous.  To carry out. the necessities' of their  strategy, which I have already; outlined; requires to .a certain extent a  division "of their forces.'In, the'North  Sea at' the present time there are only  six hours of-daylight, and heavy fogs  and snow storms prevail during a  large part of the' time. The tempera-  'ture of-the North,sea is" frequently-be-  Jow zero. There is' no rest night or day  for the men. No man knows whethJr  or not the- next moment may be his  last, whether mm."' not in a twinkling  of an eye he may-be dumpe-A into the  icy depths. The repair, supply- and  coaling of this-enormous fleet is a  problem of great difficulty, for the  forces at sea must'never be seriously  weakened.  Taking into consideration the facts  (hat many eminent officers, including  Sir Percy Scott, the father of modern  gunnery, .stated btfore the war. that  the submarine had made the battleship obsolete; that Great Britain is  of necessity forced to divide her  fleet; that her superiority to the Germans..in. dreadnoughts is only five to  three; that the Germans are,able to  make a sortio at any moment by day  or night in concentrated force; that  the-British fleet is in the position of a  man with -his armb bound, unable to  strike 'back, but feeling sur j that the  hour of vegeance will soon be nigh;  that Great Britain still is mistress of  the seas and lu.'s been able to carry  out every, part of her programme���������  all this seems to' ..-prove to me that  British naval ^trategy and efficiency  have been of a. high.order.  British strategy in- time of peace  ^has provided, in spite of the peace  'crokers in parliament, such a large  shipbuilding programme that Great  Britain now occupies a stronger position relative to Germany than at the  beginning of the war, in spite of/the  Toss 'of about 3 per "cent, of her'total  gun power".'In tlie next six months  eight superdreadnoughts will.be" finished for the French'fleet, and two "for  Japan. If Great Britain desires these  ships, the six Japanese and French  ships will be turned over to her, and  manned by her naval forces, an addition to the'British fleet of 14 vessels  of the' most powerful and. modern  type, and equivalent in gun power and  fighting strength- to"v the first 18 Ger:  man dreadnoughts.  Those amateur strategists iii England who. demand'.,- that the. British  should charge madlyover mine fields  to get at the Germans, simply ask  Great Britain to commit suicide as a  nation, for time' works on the- side of  the allies. The situation of the allies  does not render thetaking.of chances  necessary, but criminal; a. policy of  watchful waiting must, be pursued.  When a few noncombatants in an unfortified town iare killed, the English  should remember that millions upon  millions are ' suffering... in France,  Poland,-Belgium and Galicia, and give  their -fleet the deepest confidence and  -gratitude, for in the.British fleet, 1  believe/every man is doing his duty.-���������  New York Times.  The Seed Grain Rate  Farmers Must Produce G.G.A. Certifi:  cate to Get Privilege .  -. The three railways, "C.P.R., C.N.R.,  and G.T.P., have hit'upon a plan which  they believe, will do away with the  overwhelming amount of fraudulent  classifications which has forced tlv^m  to cut out the special rates on seed  grain in other years.  From now on all farmers visliing to  take advantage'of the seed grain rate  will have to-secure a certificate from  the nearest locals agent of the Grain  Growers' Association of Manitoba and  Saskatchewan or the United Farmers  of Alberta. This certificate will have  to be signed by the provincial secretary, and the farmer himself and will  certify to "the fact that the grain to  be shipped is for seed purposes. These  certificates will be given to all farmers whether or not they are members  of any of the associations.  In years past the railways state,  large proportions of tho wheat crop  have been shipped as seed grain.  Much of this, they believe, was not  what it was said to be and to avoid  this fraud in the future they held a  meeting with the secretaries of the  Grain Growers' Association.-? and Iiit  upon the certificate plan. -They did  not wish to cut off the special rate  entirely as it injured the honest  farmer.  A number of Prussian Guardsmen  wounded in the great fight on November 11 are now at the Woolwich Hospital.

'Her losses-cannot be  estimated with, precision, but,, excluding slightly wounded who have returned to "the colors, they are certainly not less than 1,000,000 men. Considering also thatthe sick men must be  numerous on account of the strain  imposed upon the troops,at the op^n-  .' ,������ the war; consideiing the waste  due to climatic' causes," especially in  the east;' and -considering also the  9J9U.} 'SU0SU.IB2 putf'itouici UOddlMjT  is good reason to suppose that the  supply; of fully trained men is practically used up, in the sense that there  are but few more left for drafting.  Iii oi'der to find^ future drafts and to  increase the numbers and the larger  units at the front, it is necessary for-  Germany to make a heavy call upon  the .'people.       -  ��������� ,  It has been the practice in-Germany  for many, years to. allow young men  ���������liable for service to postpor-e their  entry into the army from the age of  .20, to 21 or 22 and in some cases'even  to a higher age. ��������� This was rendered  all the more' easy because up to the  passage of the law* in 1913, less than  half of the contingent of the year was  actually incorporated. Tho r^stilt  Nwas that, .instead of anticipating con-  ^ngents like Napoleon, the Germans  saved them up and provided thorn-  selves with a first recruiting reserve,  of which a considerable part is probably already in service at the front  and at the depots. The last year for  [whiph complete German recruiting  statistics are available is 1911. In  that year there"~were 503,000 youths  of 20 examined for the first time, 368,-  000 youths of 21, adjourned from the  previous, year, 289,000 adjourned from  the year 1909 and 51,000 over the age  of 22. This gave ' about 1,271,000  youths liable to service and the situation in 1914, v.-hen the war began,  must have been r.ot very different.  This, is the first source upon which  the German military administration  will'naturally draw.      ���������.':������������������ J'.  Germany Las at her disposal first,  th3 1914 ��������� contingent and recruiting  reserve, ��������� approximately 1,000,000;  secondly, the Ersatz men and first  ban landsturm 3,000,000, and thirdly  the youths under,,20,- say.- 1,000,000.  Considering, however, that seme in-  cependent Ersatz.- formations have  been placed in the field; that many  yjuths are already serving as volunteers;' that quite a number fc-om the  landsturm first ban have marched  with the... other trained men of the  sicond ban arid' finally, that: many  men are "-abroad and have been -unable to return, the total number of  untrained men who are in process of  incorporation and training is 4,000,-  C00, or thereabouts. It is not safe to  put the figure down at anything less.  These 4,000,000 men were entirely  i.nlrained until the first of them were  called up. They are inferior to the  u-erman serving troops in physique  and constitution and many of 8them  are old as wr.rfare goes nowadays.  The great majority are married and  without much ta. '.e and talent for  soldiering so that one can expect a  steady deterioration in the quality if  German troops from now on, especially as it will be hard' to find arrangements for such numbers. On the other  hand, the military spirit of Germany  will overcome many difficulties and  as the Germans have recently givon  Austria a million rifles fori her landsturm there muzt be no lack of small  arras. Krupp and Ehrhardt no longer  possess the monopoly of warlike material. Every artillery industry is hard  at work and though,thc lack of copper  is serious, there is as yet no definite  sign that the war of attrition interferes materially with the provision  of things needed fori German troops'.  TATES LOSING FRIEN  C  dollars Overshadow question of humanity  American Journalist Writes a-Scathing Indictment of United States  Diplomacy, and in Biting Language Condemns the Position  taken by Wilson Administration on War Subject  erty, the strewing of the open sea with  long lived floating mines, all involving  enormous sacrihes of life and .'we'altu  without 'commensurate'' military advantage. Again and again one hears  men of repute say that Mr. Wilson has  revealed his own cowardice, degraded  the presidency,- dishonored American '  political and moral traditions. These  outbursts do not proceed from resentment of Mr. WilsonVprotest with .e-  gard to British arid French treatment  of trade with neutral countries..Everyone admits that Mr. Wilson is bound  to protect the- neutral commerce ot  America as far as he can.'  "The indictment against us so far  as I can measure it simply, is this:  We abdicated.ignoininously 'and ,ran  away whe:i great questions of morals  arid humanity were concerned but  promptly recovered our sense of duty  and our courage" when the state of  war threatened to reduce the profits  of the copper kings anl otherwise  penalize America materially.  "Now if we have lost, at least for  the time being, the friendly and- respectful consideration of the Allies, I  think it cannot possibly be said that  we have gained the" high opinion-or  affection-of the Teutonic empires.,My  experience is that influential Germans  are inclined to speak of us with scorn.  They accuse us of clinging to England,  of enduring its. 'arrogant monopoly of  the sea,' of tolerating British control  of cables largely owned by Americans,  and otherwise of showing ourselves  small.     ���������    - ^        ,  "It seems ��������� that the v^hole of Europe  is hardening against America." I understand that innumerable persons -will  dispute this;-I understand that diplomacy and pious aspiration will go on  using the language of futility ; and  sham, but one cannot ��������� doubt, as matters stand, that when peace comes tho  United States ,will have no hand In  making it; that its isolation in all  events so far as Europe is concerned  will be nearly complete, and the/maintenance of mot only its own traditional  policies in tho western hemisphere but  its own national security will require  the utmost naval and military strength  of which it is capable." \  Edward P. Bell, London correspondent of the London Daily News, is of  .the opinion, gathered trom information in interviews with men of importance throughout Europe, thatthe United States has incurred the enmity of  all. the belligerent nations a'_d that  with; the close of the ,wni\ this nation  will face isolation and peril. Mr. Bel',  says:  "Conversations with persons of  force representing the sentiments of  Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy,  Germany; and Austria compel the conviction that the United States is making no real friends in this war. On'  the contrary, it is impossible not to  see that the American name is suffering and that conceivably the republic  is laying up grave trouble for itself  in the future.  "The general charge against our  country is that we are displaying .,  shameless lack of idealism, chivalry,  magnanimity and courage. Britons,  Frenchmen, Russians and Italians  blame America for'ignoring the inva--  sion 'of Belgium and the violations of  the conventions of The 1-lagtie and  then springing into the' international  arena with a protest relating exclusively to matters of trade. The argument in all these complaints is that if  President -Wilson . had protested  "gainst the violations of the treaties  ���������and! the principles of civilized warfare  he could have protested with a vastly  greater effect against the arbitrary  and possibly indefensible interference  With American cargoes."  "Europeans; profoundly.. misunderstanding the Americans, as nearly  every nation misunderstands every  other, always have referred to the  people of the Unitel States as 'dollar  people,' and the policy of President  Wilson in the present war has crys;  talized the pervasive impression . into  a sharp and universal postulate.

We had to hold our own  against hordes of bar-nrians. It was  supposed by some that the var would  be ended by economic forces. He  might not be a goo* economist, but he  did riot himself quite" believe it. It  would be when they got the Germans  back into their own country that tho  desperate fighting would begin, and  he did not think that the, economic  question Would shorten or end the  war.

Stragetic   Plans  Are   Well   Conceived  and   Productive  of  Results  The admiralty has not been "caught  napping." Many months ago, in times  of pence, the most skilled brains at  the disposal of the nation thought out  a war plan. This plan is in operation,  as modified and proved by the daily  experience of actual war. Its goodness or badness can only be tested  finally when the day conies that the  enemy seeks battle iu strength.  But in the meantime the admiralty  has given proof, in one engagement  after another, that its strategic plans  are well conceived and productive of  cumulative victories. If it were, in  fact, a bad plan, the public which has  never been to sea, could not Improve  ; it. Wo war plan whatever that  could be drawn up by men who knew  the conditions of naval warfare would  allow the strength of the fleet to ..-c ,  frittered away by lining up the ships |  like a squad of ineffective recruits  along the shores. #  Recalling those simple facts we shall  be willing to trust the admiralty in  the future, as in the past, and not to  begin shouting t':at the country is in  ruins because a squib ha,j fallen In  our own backyard. That future is,  beyond doubt, extremely interesting.  It has possibilities of many kinds-  hut no possibility of defeat while we  '< :ep our trade.���������London Daily Sketch.  Thoroughly   Modernized   and   Greatly  Strengthened Since War With  Japan  ���������From the days when, Peter the  Greats in a ship which his own hands  had helped to construct, led his fleet  to attack the Turks, Russia has had a  naval tradition. It was Peter, too,  who wrested Sweden's Baltic province  from her, and built almost on the  shore of the Gulf of Finland; his new  capital, called after himself, ar.d  which, after having bqrne for a number of years the name of another and  even more notable Peter, hac just had  its original Russian name aagin bestowed on it. By removing his capital  from Moscow to Petrograd, Peter not  only helped to bring his people more  into contact with the rest of Europe,  but himself became transformed from  the semi-oriental Czar of Muscovy into  ../ emperor of All the Russias, whose  influence .and interests needed for  their maintenance an efficient degree  of sea power. That tradition which  Peter left has always retained its potency, and despite neglect and maladministration, which at times overshadowed it, the Russian navy is today  far more powerful than is generally  known... The lesson of the war with  Japan Tias been taken to heart, and  the result has been the creation of a  i idem and efficient fleet, str.nger in  every way than before that disastrous  campaign. Russia, too, has beer in the  forefront of construction, and some remarkable ships have at various times  been put to her credit.  . Of the four fleets possessed by Russia at the outbreak of war with Japan,  two survived intact, but only one can  be taken into account in connection  with later developments. The four  fleets are, respectively, the Baltic, ihe  Black Sea, Pacific and Caspian, and  two of them, the Baltic and Pacific,  were practically annihilated. That the  others escaped was primarily due to  the fact that the major portion of tlie  Black Sea fleet was not-permitted to  pas.-, the Dardanelles, and the Caspian  fleet, of minor importance, is, of  course, confined to her own waters,  from which there is no outlet.  In reviewing the Russian navy as it  exists today, it is advisably to start  with the Baltic fleet, as Russia's principle naval operations will doubtless take place in talit sea. The  great majority of the ships are modern; of those that survived the Russo-Japanese war only two are in the  first class. These are the "Tzsarevitch"  of 12,900 tons, and the "Slava" of 13,-  500 tons. The first named ship carries four 12 inch, twelve G inch, '4-  iuch guns, and has two torpedo tubes.  Her speed is 18 knots. She was built  in France in 1890, but'the "Slava" was  laid down In the Neva shipyards three  years later. The armament is similar,  with the exception of twenty ;���������'������ pounders, replacing the 1.8 inch and 1.4 Inch  guns of the "Tszarevitch," and the  "Slava" la better protected. The speed  is the same.  tw*ww������jiwwiwi^ai.iv^iua.i^i.w������h^  ^V^B*ir?Miifi[ffllB.TftWi.h^)L J'  1 -  ���������*-t"L i������f-Wf-fl # ( L-������t rf -������m������ *������������������n���������.i'7-  THE   SUN,    GRAND   FORKS,    B.
