C.  On Tuesday night Mr. H. H. Stevens, M. P.,  sent the following dispatch to Ottawa:  "Right Hon. Sir R. L. Borden:���������  "Since returning to Vancouver I find conditions such as to create alarm for the near future  as regards payments on maturing mortgages and  land sale agreements. It is impossible to get new  loans on the best of security and certain avaricious persons exhibit the temdency to force foreclosure proceedings, taking advantage of war  conditions. There is also a lot of German money  invested through local companies, which companies are forcing payment or forfeiture on behalf  of their clients. Recently .a Supreme Court judge  declared that he had no power to staj* the execution of a judgment authorizing foreclosure. I  would urge on your government to exercise the  power given it at the recent session and declare  a moratorium on all mortgages and agreements  as a necessary action in view of the conditions,  and would respectfully press strongly for immediate action by the government.  "(Signed) H. H. Stevens."  In referring to his dispatch to Jthe Premier,  Mr. Stevens stated that he felt that such action  was a necessary step on the part of the government to protect citizens who may feel themselves  in jeopardy owing to the general tightness of  money. It would not apply to general business  or commercial indebtness, but would affect only  payments on mortgages and agreements for sale,  and the recommendation applied only to these  two forms of indebtness, in which the creditor  was amply secured and not to a general moratorium in which all classes of indebtedness would'  be included. His action, he stated, had been inspired by numerous cases brought to his attention  where extreme hardship had been inflicted with  no immediate benefits possible to the parties instigating the foreclosure.  Mayor Baxter, when spoken to in regard to  this telegram, said:  "I think it is a very good idea.  From what I  have heard about the way foreclosures are being  ^forced itJsJiimeJfoatJome_suchj^  h***************************^  .    f  Regarding the indebtedness of the men who have  gone to the front J may say that in our work on  the relief committee in dealing with the mortgagors and vendors of land held by the volunteers  we have riot had a single case in which there has  been shown any inclination to press for the money.  Every man has said that as far as they were concerned the payment can stand. However, the exigencies of business may require the transfer or  assignment of some of these claims, and they may  fall into less generous hands. But as far as the  present holders of these claims I can only say  that they have been most liberal and it has been  a great pleasure to have associations with them.  Outside of these cases, however, there are undoubtedly men who are pushing foreclosure pro-.  ceedings beyond any necessity, and anything that  will postpone these foreclosures will do good."  Mr. Jonathan Rogers, president of the Board  of Trade, also approved of the recommendation  of the Member of Parliament. "I quite agree that  some such steps should be taken," said he.  "Whether a moratorium is best or not I am not  sure, but these foreclosures should be stopped  until better times. I have been urging something  on this line for some time, but just how it could be  worked out is difficult to determine. It might  be that the courts could appoint a.trustee to administer property subject to foreclosure, so that  the mortgagors would be assured of such revenue  as it might produce. I think also that something  should be done to lighten the burden of7 business  men who although possessed of ample assets are  yet unable to secure from the banks cash with  which to prosecute their business on the scale demanded."  The following reply to Mr. Stevens' telegram  to the Premier has been received:  : ���������'���������.������������������     -������������������'*  H.i H. Stevens, M.-P., Vancouver:  "Your telegram respecting mortgages. We  are advised that such matters are under the juris-'  diction and control of the Provincial Legislatures.  The subject has been commended to the consideration of every provincial government some weeks  ago.  "B. L. Borden."  This question then is now up to Victoria.  ��������� - o  MEN OF IHE HOUR  O i *  i"_"t"t' -1' <��������� -t' ���������!��������� 't'���������������!��������� ������������������������ -t' ���������!��������� '!��������� -t- ���������!��������� ���������!���������������<������������������!��������� ���������?��������� ������������������������ -I-l-l' -t-<g X X !

GTO3JtAfrJOFFR"E  Commander-in-Chief of our French Allies  tw war pay mm  The Germans are now lined up for another  great battle, which they must fight and win if  they are to make g^  Their right wing rests on Noyon, 14 miles north of  Compeigne, then sweeping south and north in a  semi-circle, passes by Laon, then straight east to  Rethel, and from there to a point just north of  Verdun, then due east to the German fortress of  Metz, on which their left wing rests. This battle  is now on, and must be won by the German to  prevent disaster. The situation is described as  satisfactory by both French and British official  bureaus.  London.���������-From official Press Bureau:   "It is  stated from Russian official sources that the rout  of the Austrian army in Galicia is complete. The  Austrian loss since the taking of Lemberg is estimated-at-250,000 killed and- wounded,^lOO.OCHK  prisoners, 400 guns, many colors and vast quantities of stores. The Germans made desperate efforts to save the Austrian army, but failed completely, losing 36 pieces of heavy artillery and several dozen pieces of siege artillery."  Nish, Servia.���������The Montenegrins defeated the  Austrians at Koulilivo on September 13. The  Servians have finally* driven the Austrians across  the Drina after several desperate engagements,  and are now advancing into Bosnia. Nothing im-  portant on the Danube. "  Latest War News  London, Sept X7-Eari Kitchener, Secretary of State for War, in the House of  Lords today, took the country into his confidence as to what the British army  had already done to assist their French allies, and spoke of what would be done in  the future of the war, which he said probably would be a long one.  "There are already in France," said Earl Kitchener, "rather more than six  divisions of our expeditionary forces. The latest advices from Sir John French," he  said, "did not materially change the situation from the published statements. The  troops were in good heart, ready to move forward when the moment arrived."  In addition to the six divisions of troops, he said there Were two divisions of  cavalry in France, which were being maintained at their full strength, while further  regular divisions and additional cavalry were being organized from units drawn from  over-seas garrisons. A division of territorials haa already left for Egypt, a brigade  for Malta and a garrison for Gibraltar. As to the two new armies, new divisions  were now assembling at training quarters, and a third army Was being formed on  the new camping grounds. A fourth army was being created and Indian divisions  were on their way.  Havre, Sept.17.���������The Germans have abandoned Laon and Lafere and are moving back to the  hastily improvised fortifications and entrenchments at Sedan and M^rieres. This more than any other  move shows the seriousness of the situation for the Germans.  With some~ hitherto unrecorded developments pending, which may materially aid the Allies, the  censorship has become stricter than ever.  Antwerp.���������Belgians reject offer of extension of territory said to have been made, by Baron von  der Goltz for ah armistice. Belgium's reply was a renewed attack on German lines precipitating a  four days' battle.  Paris.���������The Kaiser has sent a telegram to the King of Italy, as follows:���������  "Conqueror or conquered, I shall never forget your treason."  This is one more case of lese majeste.  The Vancouver Board of Trade have given Mr. Fee till today to resign his membership ere calling a meeting to expell him.   Sentiment seems strong against the attitude taken by Mr. Fee.  THE WAR DAY BY DAY  Cape Town, Sept. 12.���������South Africa will up-   '  hold   the   Empire in its conflict with Germany.  Premier Botha in a thoroughly loyal speech, held ,  that when the Empire was at war the Union was  also at war, her troops therefore had been mob- "''  ilized land the Union would undertake operations *  against German Southwest Africa whose troops   >  had already invaded Union territory.   The Imper- .  ial government had arranged a loan for the Union  of $35,000,000 to cover war expenses.  Paris.���������The Germans have been decisively defeated on the Marne, and are now in full and  rapid retreat. The French and British forces  are pursuing closely, and it is thought in many *  quarters that the Germans" will have some difficulty in extricating the armies of Von Kluck and  the Prince of Wurtemberg. News is also received  today, from Vitry le Francois that the Germans  have abandoned the attack on the French centre  that has been raging fiercely for four days, and  are retreating on Nancy. The French forces' following up have re-occupied Luneville.  Antwerp.���������The Belgium army haa   resumed  the offensive, and is harrassing the enemy.   They'  have driven ,the Germans back as far as Louvain.  Ghent and neighborhood is now free from German troops, the detaehment left here to collect ^  assessment -Jiaving-gone south probably to .assist  in the retree^ torn France.  Petrograd.���������The Russians gained a glorious  victory over Austrians at Kraauik and Tomaasow  ���������also to west and northwest of liemberg.

Gal-   icia ends in decisive victory for the Russians. The  Austrian forces are completely beaten, and may  probably henceforth be disregarded as a factor  in the war.  Dijon, France.���������The Germans have evacuated  the region of Nancy. The French centre has victoriously resisted a ten day's attack at this point.  The vattack here for part of the time being under  the personal direction of Kaiser Wilhelm. The  Belfort district is also freed of Germans, and is  now being re-occupied by the French who still  hold Tharnn and the outskirts of Altkirche.  Rome.���������Austria shas removed her first line of  troops from the Italian frontier in order to  strengthen her forces facing the Russians.  Sept. 15, Paris.���������Battle commenced on Sunday  still continues with advantage day by day to the  Allied forces. On the left wing the armies are in  close touch with the enemy on the whole front  from the heights north of the river Aisne to those  west and south of Rheims. On the centre our forward movement between the Argonne district and  the Meuse continues. Verdun is not now and  never has been invested. Fort Troyon, which  protects the heights of Meuse, has been bombarded on several occasions.  Nothing new on the right wing.  Sept. 16, London.���������The general position along  the Aisne river, is very favorable. Several counter attacks by the Germans have been repulsed,  and a slight advance made by our troops and by  the French armies both on right and left of lis.  Soisson, France.���������The German right wing  abandoned Soissons on Monday, and retreated  north of the river Aisne.  Rome.���������The military had to be called out to  suppress a demonstration in opposition to Italy's  continued   neutrality.    The Italian   people are V  strongly in favor of joining the Allies in the war  to suppress Prussian militarism.  Sept. 17, Amiens.���������It is reported here that the  German right wing is now encircled by the Allies.  London.���������The battle of tbe Aisne has been  fought and won by the Allies and adds another  chapter of heroism and daring to those won; by  the A^ies at Mons and in the battle of the Marne.

While the program for the sessions  of the International Dry Farming congress to be held at Wichita, Kansas,  October 12-15, is still in the process  of making to some extent, yet it has  practically been completed. The distinctive thing about the program is  the fact that representatives who are  in attendance will not be compelled  to bring credentials with them from  any appointive power.'. This is a clear  departure from the usual rule of congresses, conferences, conventions and  the like. The idea in departing thus  from the usual custom is to simplify  and democratize the Ninth sessions  so far as possible and to extractv the  highest possible usefulness from!  them.  The Rev. Dr. Alexander M. Brodie,  pastor of "the First Presbyterian  church of Wichita", will deliver the invocation". The assemblage will be  called to order by W. I. Drummond,  of Muskogee, Oklahoma, chairman of  the International.Board of Governors.  Then there will be the introduction  of Charles W.'Southward,.of Wichita,  chairman of the Kansas Board of Control,   followed   by   the   addresses   of  welcome.      ��������� . >  Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock in jFe railroad hi theT>anhaildle of Tex"  States department of agriculture in  the dry land agriculture work; by A.

C, that is attracting more than.'ordinary  serious attention: .  It requires the Federal reserve board to organize and put into effect, a system under which  loans of not to exceed $5,000 in each case may be  made to any one person at an interest, rate not to  exceed 4 per cent, for a period not longer than 20  years.  "Such loans," says the bill, "shall be made  only for the purpose of acquiring farm lands or  city property and improving the same for residence purposes, or for improving residence property."     /  In explaining the measure Senator Jones said:  "With tbe general objects and purposes of the  , rural credit bills which have been presented I am  in hearty .sympathy. They do not/ however* go  to the real needs of the people. They :help Vthe  man who has something to get more, but they do  not help the man who has nothing to get something���������to get a start, if you please. There are  many men who, if they could just get a start,  would soon own a home. They are honest, sober,  industrious and economical, but they cannot get  ahead. Most of their efforts go to support some  one else by the payment of rents. The rent for  the farm or city dwelling takes most of their savings. They cannot buy or build a home. These  are the men who really need help.  "JPut these men so that the money they pay  as rent will apply upon the purchase of a farm or  a home in the city without most of it going for interest, so tbat the product of their labor will go  to them, and their families and they will soon become home owners and builders and happier men  and better citizens. Strength, energy, industry,  sobriety, honesty and frugality are a < substantial  basis of credit in the business world, and the man  who has these elements should, be enabled to capi-  _^ talize them jeyen if he doesn't own any property.  With these and the property purc.hasea with a.  loan as security for its repayment, the element of  loss will be small.   ,  "This is the real purpose of this bill.   It is to  help those who now have nothing in the way of  . property to acquire something to make it so that  their efforts may go to their oMrn; benefit rather  than to sustain some one else in idleness.  It is to  capitalize industry, good character and the frugality of the renter and assist him to become a home  owner.   When we do that we do a real good, we  help where help is needed, we make better citizens,   and   strengthen   the   government   itself.  We make our    citizens    feel    that    the    government    really    means    something    of    good  and helpfulness   to    them    as   individuals.    I  would   rather   assist   in   passing   a   law.  of  this kind than in enacting some great measure-  so-called���������restricting the captains   of   industry  from cutting each other's throats, as we spend  most of our time in doing.  "This bill simply lays down the broad principles to be followed in accomplishing a, great and  definite object and allows the details to be worked  , out through the great financial organization  which we have provided for handling our currency system. It can work put the details much  better than we and should be able to do it at a  minimum of cost.. There need be no high salaried  officials as is provided for in the various rural  credit measures, and a comparativelysmall number of local agents will need to be provided. The  greatest latitude is given to the most experienced  of business men to carry out a purely business  proposition. * They will be connected with local  agencies fam^iar withVlocal eonditions, and they  can carry on the work more safely and more economically and more wisely than any other agency.  "This measure is not paternalism, it is aided  individualism; it is not Socialism, it is good gov-  ernmentalism."  TRUE OF A CITY ALSO  Only a few years have passed since it first  dawned upon a people who had revelled in plenty  for a century that the richest patrimony is not  proof against constant and careless wa.ste; that a  nation of spenders must take thought for its morrow or come to poverty.���������James J. Hill.  PROCLAMATION APPOINTING  DAY OF PRAYER fOR PEACE  i  MORE QERMAN ECCENTRICITIES  We publish today the proclamation of President Wilson calling on the people of the United  States to pray for peace in Europe.  It is backed up by a call from the Federal  council of the churches of Christ in America urging a full observance of the day on the .120.000  Protestant Evangelical churches the -.ouncil represents. _  The proclamation is humble, solemn and reverent, and will unite the minds and hearts of millions of praying men and women on October 4 in  an appeal to the wisdom and goodness of God  fronx the confusion and failure of human wisdom  and counsel that has wrought such awful bloodshed in Europe.  President Wilson's proclamation was as follows:���������     - ".[   v.; "���������  By the President of the United States of America  ������������������:.;'-���������  i���������A Proclamation.  Whereas, great nations of the world have  taken up arms against one another and war now  draws millions of men into battle whom the counsel of statesmen have not been able to save from  the terrible sacrifice; land,  Whereas, in this as in all things, it is our privilege and duty to seek counsel and succor of AI-',  mighty God, humbling ourselves before him, confessing our weakness and our lack of any wisdom  equal to these things; and,  Whereas, it is the equal especial wish and longing of the people of the United States, in prayer  end counsel and all friendliness, to serve the cause  of peace j - .V  Therefore, I, Woodrow Wilson, president of  the United States of America, do designate Sunday, the 4th day of October next, a day of prayer  and supplication, and do request all God fearing  persons to repair on that day to their places of  worship,, there to unite their petitions to Almighty  God, that overruling the^counsel of men, setting  straight the things they cannot govern or alter,  taking pity on the nations now in the throes of  conflict, in his mercy and goodness showing a  way where men' can see none, He vouchsafe Hs  children healing peace again and restore once  more that concord among men and nations without which there can be neither happiness nor true  friendship, nor any wholesome fruit of toil.or  thought in the world; praying also to this end that  he forgive us our sins, our ignorance of his holy  will, our. willfulness, and many errors, and lead  us in the paths of obedience to places of vision  .and to thoughts and counsels that purge and make  wise. ,    .,  In witness whereof I have hereunto set my  hand and caused the seal of the United States to'  be affixed. <   ��������� "i  WOODROW WILSON.

'-'/  ITS AN lit WIND THAT  JIOWS NOBODYGOOD  " The United States government September crop,  report just issued estimates that the farm value,  of the" four leading cereal crops of the country,  together with the value of the hay crop, shows  ������ total increase over the value of the same crops  last year of $621,000,000.  The total crop of wheat is placed at 896,000,000  bushels, a reduction of 15,000,000 bushels in the  spring wheat yield estimated in August, lowering  the total yield. The value of this crop is 93,3  cents September 1, based on the farm values, or a  total of $836,000,000, compared to $588,p00,0O0 a  year ago. The value of the corn crop is $2,117,.  000,000, against $1,845,000,000 in 1913, and oats  $472,000,000, or $32,000,000 more than a year  ago. The barley crop is worth $8,000,000 more  than in 1913 on September 1, and the hay crop  has a farm^value of $822,000,000, or. $61,000,000  more than last year. "'*' 3; " ���������' '  Sound Prosperity Shown  The above figures show better than anything  else the sound basis for prosperity on the farms  the coming year. Eventually the splendid position of the farmers should be reflected in general  business conditions,-as never before in the history of the country has there been the prospect  ������or the monetary returns to the farmer there is  this year.  Ordinarily a huge crop means low prices, but  this year the record breaking wheat crop is being  disposed of at the highest values in many years.  . The moderate size of the spring wheat crop is  more than offset by the enormous winter wheat  yield, which is now being marketed at about 35  to 40 cents higher than at the beginning of the  harvest.  THS GREAT CROP OF GERMAN  VICTORIES AT LAST ACCOUNTED FOR  The New York Evening Telegram announces,  and with good cause, that so long as the present  war lasts it will not publish again one single line  of '' war news'' which is sent through any agency,  German or otherwise, as having come from Berlin  by wireless.  This paper is in a position to know that wireless stations inthis country have not, are not and  will not receive any authentic war news  from Berlin and that the news which  the capital of Germany, to this country by wireless has been, the rankest fake imaginable/with  n^feone shred of authenticity. .���������'���������'.  : At the proper time the Evening Telegram is  going to make an expose of some of these German  "victories'' which were not "made in^Germany"  but were manufactured on this side of the Atlantic. ^  The Otto Shlegel Manufacturing    Company  have sent a. circular to the Canadian Trade dated  New York, August 29, as follows:  Dear Sir:���������,    ,  Owing to, war conditions and the absolute certainty that no yellow Schlag metal or even composition leaf in books will, come froni Germany  (the only place where it is made) for .at least six  months or until the German army has occupied  England and the sea coast of France, we offer you  for immediate acceptance some of the remainder  of our stock laying at our office in Montreal."  As an example of German cocksureness this is  certainly a good one; It but illustrates1 the condition of the Teuton ?s mind all over theV world  that has brought to pass this awful disaster to the;  human family.  There is only One cure���������-a full and final settlement of accounts. That man is a traitor to the  whole race, Germans included, who proposes a  compromise.  RE MR. FEE.  Editor Western Call:���������  You will remember that his Worship our  Mayor gave instructions to the chief of police to  take drastic measures against all street speakers  .of the rabid type, as, at this time, liable to cause  or lead to treasonable acts or utterances by such  speakers.  My view is that Mr. Fee n his position and his  use of the press to expound his disloyalty to Canada and all things British, makes his views more  harmful than any amount of street speaking would  do and raises the question of one law for the rich  and one for the poor, the cause of so much class  hatred.  What would happen to Mr. Fee if, as~a citizen  of Germany, he aired his views against that country at this time?   He would be shot.  And again, as a citizen of the United States, he  told them that it would be best for them that Canada take them over, war or no war, they would  give him a number in exchange for his name, or;,  at least give him a term in some home for!the fee---.  ble minded.  I think Mr. Fee should take a sea trip; it  would improve both mind and body.  F. W. Wood.  P. S.���������The Kaiser's views re Canada and the  States are the same as Mr. Fee's. Puzzle: In what  branch of, the German service does Mr. Fee hold  a commission?  it MUST BE BETTU5D RIGHT  However the battle is ended,  .- 'Though.proudly the^victor comes  With fluttering flags and prancing nags  And echoing roll of drums,  Still truth proclaims thjs motto,  In letters of living light���������  No question is ever settled  Until it is settled right.  Though the he'd of the strong oppressor  May grind the weak in the dust,  And the voices of fame with one acclaim  May call him great and just,  fret those who applaud take warning,  And keep this motto in sight���������  No question is ever settled  Until it is settled right.  Let those who have failed take courage,  Though the enemy seemed' to have won;  Though his ranks are strong, if he be in the  wrong,  The battle is not yet done,  For sure as the morning follows -   -  The darkest hour of the night,  No question is ever settled  until it is settled right.  A TRXt FOR TH3 KAISRR  "He hath put forth his hands against such as be at  peace with him; he hath broken his covenant.; -  VThe wbrds of-his mouth were smoother than butter,  but war was in his heart; his words were softer than  oil, yet were they drawn swords. But thou, O.  God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction, bloody and deceitful men shall  not live out half  their days."  Psalm lv.f 20:23.  A NEW TEXTILE FABRIC POSSIBUi  It is believed, says a consular report on the  trade of Panama, that a substitute for silk has  been produced by crossing the blooms of certain  wild fibre plants with the cotton plant. The result is a staple of texture finer than cocoon silk,  but with a tensile strength more than five times  greater. :'���������''��������� .  The Rev. Jacob Primmer, the man who in season and out of season, has for the last 50 years:  waged ceaseless war against the "Papish and  ritualistic innovations in the Reformed churches  of Scotland," is dead. Mr. Primmer "suffered  the loss of all things" for the faith that was in  him, and whilst disowned by the church that ordained him and stripped of his "living," he contended earnestly for the faith once delivered to  the people of God and lived to see the movement  he inaugurated grow into a mighty protest not  only in Scotland but also in England, and now  more recently in the United States.  The Prince George, Grand Trunk Pacific liner  between Vancouver and Prince Rupert, which was  refitted by the authorities as hospital ship for  the Pacific coast, is to be released by the admiralty after she has been, refitted, and returned  to her route. ���������'���������'.*'-  Twenty-eight Prussians, the first to be seen  in Paris in the present war, arrived at St. Lazare  station on September 8th. They had become separated from their regiment and lost their way.  They asked a peasant near Meaux if the Germans  had taken Paris and how to get there;  The peasant replied that he thought Paris had.  fallen, and would conduct them to the right road.  When it was too late the Prussians found he was  leading them, into the British lines.  ,.

John Clifford of London,  perhaps the' most prominent Baptist  Non-Conformist leader, was on his  way back from the International  Peace Conference at Constance, Switzerland, when the war broke out.  Passing through Germany tyr. Clifford was. inclined to think that Britain's position shpuldcbe that of careful neutrality, but on reading the official statement of the negotiations  with German high officials, he was  thoroughly converted and; Dr. Clifr  ford, the greatest of peace advocates,  became a "war to the finish" enthusiast ���������'������������������.'..  Dr. Clifford's address..to his congregation"oh his; retUrn^isTinteirestingr  as it shows some of the difficulties  pur Peace advocates find in accepting  'the present/situation. Dr. Clifford  said in part:���������  "The first immediate duty of the  church was to endeavor to understand this war; to see what is at  stake; to discover the seed out of  which this accursed harvest had grown  said the speaker. In the time of war  the real and full truth was'very difficult to discover. It took some twenty  or thirty years to get at the roots of a  war. Speaking personally, he could  but say that, as one looked into the  heart of things, one felt that it was  not simply a matter of money, human  lives, misery and wretchedness, but  that what was really at. stake was-the  triumph of spiritual ideas over brutal  ones, of moral ideas over immoral  ones, of the principles of righteous-  *******************>********^  SNAP TOR G/\SH  OR ON TERMS  Four Good Lots at  White Rock, B.C.

"Dr. Clifford said that while he was  in Germany at the Peace Conference  his own strong feeling was that England could do no better than- be neu-  ) tral. On his way back to this country  he had .drafted a letter- for the press  in favor of complete neutrality. -But  when he arriyeOack on the day that  war was declared, and found, what  Germany premeditation and action  had involved, and how it had e-  volved, he had to keep that letter in  his hind. He had searched high and  low,--for- reasons ^against^the-war.^ 'I  hate war with the whole force of my  being. "It is anti-Christian, wicked  devilish, diabolical. Yet when I  looked into the situation and weighed  the whole of the evidence I could not  see that our government had taken  a wrong step. While I regret unspeakably that this island,' isolated as  it is, should be embroiled in this Continental strife, yet the only thing T  can say is that we are forced into it.  It is an'awful compulsion and what  it means nobody can tell. We must  endeavor to do the will of God, which  will be to stand up for humanity- I  believe that the best and noblest elements of the human race are with us.  "Passing on to the immediate duty  of members of Christian churches, Dr.  Clifford emphasized five points���������  There must be no giving way to panic,  alarm or dread; enemies.must be for-  ness and justice over brute force and given from the heart, for hatred is  not Christian; those who were suffering loss, poverty or distress must be  mere might.  Triumph  of  Materialism.  No   thoughtful   person  could  look  back over the last forty years without  observing the increasing triumph of  materialistic conceptions and forces.  The teachings of Schopenhauer and  of Nietzche had permeated Germany,  in general, arid Prussia, in particular.  Prussian militarism was but the incarnation of the philosophy regnant  in the great universities of Prussia,  of the present conflict. Quoting the  German chancellor's expression, "to  hack our way through," Dr. Clifford  affirmed that any thieving or robbery could be justified by the pleas  put forward in the speech in which  that phrase was taken. The idea that  the realm of ethics was to be dominated by brute force, was accursed in  its birth; in its developments, and in  its issues. On that basis, the present conflict was a battle between  brutal forces on the one hand and the  *t I Xt XX XX X II til Ulllll 11 III  ***** 1 X 11.

Nearly all our thought regarding war was wrong. We must  cease glorifying it to the imagination  of our children and' teach them that  'war is wholesale^ trturder.' At the  earliest possible moment, also, the  private  trading in  war  making and , w     Qff.        6ne  armaments, which had become one of    -������^    ,*, V  the most menacing, facts of our na^  tidnal and international life, must be  broken up.' ���������  "Putting his manuscript aside, Dr.  Clifford .went on, with greater freedom, and with a touch of his old oratorical fire: 'The rule of the military  casts must come to an end. Why  should-twenty or-ihirty^men-govern  Europe? When is this thing to come  to an end? When is autocracy'to be  put down and democracy to stand on  its own feet? God is giving us , a  great chance now, and we shall be  false to ourselves unless we make use  of it. Let every man take on to his  own shoulders his share of the responsibility of securing the most beneficent results."  BRITAIN  How He ta Helping Hia Country  The, Boy Scout iseverywhere. Official recognition seems to have ad- -  ded to his amazing sang-foid. Slim  little figures in blue, grey, or khaki,  slip through many jealous doors; the  flash of. bare knees gleams whitely  on close guarded stairs.  The War Office, the India Office,  his Majesty's Stationery Office, Scotland yard, the Central Recruiting office, and the Prince of Wales's Fund  at York House are all making use of  him.

"Dr; Clifford turned to the question  of how the churches were to set to  work to secure fruits of the most  beneficent and, abiding kind from the  present struggle, and to ensure that  this war'should not be the. precursor  of others, but as it was the greatest  known to history, so it might be the  last. 'Our ideal is high, and our goal  is distant. We seek nothing less than  the organization of the peoples of the  world on the basis of peace, the federation of the States of Europe, and of  the whole planet on the foundation  of international laws, with an international court to administer the laws,  and an international court to administer  the laws,  and an  international  A Silent Pause at Noon.  The Archbishop of Canterbury has  drawn up a new form of private  prayer to be offered up specially for  the sailors of our fleet in the present  crisis. He suggests its use particularly at noon as a silent prayer, when '  the bell reminds those at work to lift  up their hearts to the Lord.' It is  as folows:���������  . "O. Thou, that slumberest not nor  sleepest, protect, we pray Thee, our  sailors from "the hidden perils of the  sea, from the snares and assaults of  the enemy. In the anxious hours of  waiting, steady and support those" on  whom the burdens of responsibility  lie. heavily,'and grant that in dangers  often, in watching often, in Weariness  often, they may serve Thee with a  quiet mind; through Jesus Christ our  Lord.���������Amen.  KING ALBERT REWARDS  LEYSEN. HEROIC BOY  SCOUT OF BELGIUM  Paris.���������The hero of Belgium today  is the boy scout Leysen, who has  been decorated by King Albert for his  valor and devotion to his country.  This young man, born at Liege, is  described by the Figaro as of almost  uncanny sharpness, with senses and  perceptions as keen as a savage. He  was able to find his way through the .  woods and pass the sentinels of the  enemy   with   unerring  accuracy.  Leysen made his way through the  German lines from Antwerp for the  tenth time last Sunday, carrying dispatches to secret representatives of the  Belgian government in Brussels. He  has discovered and denounced eleven  German spies in , Belgium, -and performed a variety of other services,  and all without impairing his boyish  simplicity.  NO DRINK FOR THE FRONT  Lord Kitchener states that no presents of wines or spirits can be accepted for the troops at the front,  and that none will be forwarded.  The British and Russian armies are  both, as regards officers and men, on  an absolutely teetotal regime during  the war.  BOYS' BRIGADE OFFER  The Boys' Brigade which has 70,-  000 members In the United Kingdom  and 10,000 in London, is stepping  forward to offer its services to the  country at the present juncture.  The London committee, pf which  MajornGeneral Sir John Moody is  chairman, is making special efforts  to be ready for any call for assistance which may be made upon the  brigade. Their services will be available to help either military or civil  authorities.  According to Aaron Waldheim,  president of the Empire Automobile  Company, just back in Montreal from  Carlsbad, prohibition went into effect in Germany the day war was declared. No. wonder the Germans  were in such a hurry to get to France.  ->���������  7-        -' . ��������� ' /  THE  WESTERN  CALL.  Friday.

Sheepdogs and terriers used by the  Belgian army to draw a little cart  filled with amunition into the firing  line have played a part in the fighting  near Liege like the war dogs used in  the battles in the Middle Ages.  ' A telegram from Antwerp relates  how a machine gun detachment which  became isolated rah out of ammunition. The men determined to fall  back on the main body by a charge.  As they threw themselves on the enemy, thrusting with bayonet and striking with the butts of their rifles,  their ammunition dogs sprang forward also, darting with fierce teeth  at the throats and legs of the.

Frihet! Fnhet fran den katolska  kyrkan, tyranni, frihet och poli-  tisk sjalfstandighet for Uncle  Sams s. k. Filippin koloni! Innan  Amerikanen kom, var det en sa-  dan valdsam disciplin bade ute och  inomhus, att da en katolsk prest  kom spatserande p& gatorna i Manilla, infodingen maste icke ga for  bi honom rak, eller i uppratt man-  niskostallning, som ju ar naturens  vag, utan han maste huka ihop  sig tio fot pa afstand och gfi, for-  bi presten.vanstald. Forst efter  ytterligare tio fots afstand fran  storrepresentanten af det romer-  ska pafvedomet, v&gade infodingen rata pa sig.  Diamanter voro bade presternas  och nunnornas alldagliga smycken  icke endast hade katoliken dia-  imant i radbandet och pk kruci-  fixet, hvilket hangde dinglande  och diamantskinande pa brbstet.  Battre upp! Han kom med diamanter fastsydda pa sandjalerna  under hans f otter. Hvilken gras-  lig hypokrici varlden fatt blifva  bekant med, i pafven och hans sto  ra allsmagtiga folje! Att man  borjar blifva trott pa en sadan  slags kristendom, ar ju ieke att  undras pa. Ocksa, har infodingen  trottnat.  Han skadar Staternas ingripan-  de i afffirerne i Orienten ocksa,  med ingen i_vindre misstanksam-  het, an det af katoliken.  Uncle Sam kom och erofrade!  En ny folkvilja, representeran-  de s. k. republik, vill spela erofrare ! Man kan icke annat an vam-  jas at storforsoket. Men, kanske  det blir annat af, innan Filippin-  befolkningen ar fardig med Uncle  Sam. Det dar sattet att komma  med valdiga dreadnoughts, med  kulor och krut och halla upp en  annan landsanda efter sattet for  stratrofvare, borjar blifva litet  for illalluktande. Indianens for-  fiirliga missode tyeks vara nog.  Roster hojas for rattvisa och ett  arligare tillvagagaende medmen-  niskor emellan.
