Graphic Account of the Sinking of Three British Cruisers, The Hogue, Cressy, and Aboukir-Page 4  s -     ��������� ��������� ��������� ���������   ���������  Temperance Armies Fight for the British Empire-See Page 5  THE WAR  '.Not a single. German soldier .remains   on .  [Bussian^ground".   This is the good news flashed  [from Petrograd. ;  The defeat of the AHstro-Germah ��������� forces be-  [fore Warsaw was so complete and the disposition  [of the great Bussian armies by the Grand Duke  [^Nicholas so masterly that the enemy has had no  [chance to recover and the retreat has become al-  Jmost a flight without rear-guard*, actions. Guns  md ammunition and stores and prisoners have  |been captured and it is reported that Jhe German  loss in officer^ has been unprecedented as high as  [seventy per cent, a figure almost incredible.  The Bussian movements, if correctly reported,  ind there is no reason for unbelief, so far, in the  [reportsfrom Bussian sources, have been iinexpeet-  |edly rapid so that not only are theCosstecks within  [touch of Breslau and Cracow, but apparently in  >th instances their cavalry is strongly supported  Jed by great masses of infantry.  The rich Prussian province of Silesia has been  ["entered by the victorious Bussian troops and the  [occupation af Breslau, a city of 600*,000 inhabi-  [tants is now impending. It would be an excellent  Lhostage for Germany's better behaviour in France  land Belgium and the time seems to be close at  mand, when the bloodthirsty and piratical methods  lof the Prussian military party will be called.  [Kaiser Wilhelm was present on the battlefield  |and ready to enter Warsaw in shining armour;  rhere it is said, a great ball was to be held, in-  [vitations for which had already been issued. His  [capture wlas unfortunately not effected, altho  [evidently it had been planned by the Russians,  land cawe-near enough to H to suggest a rapid  .retreat.   ���������'���������;. .,>. ������������������    "*.X  :---:.-:���������/--���������  ������������������-���������������������������;������������������������������������-������������������������������������  Evidently the Emperor of Poland must await  [another crowning day.,  Jn Flanders another desperate attack on the  [Allies "has developed and whilst it is raging all  [the way from the North Sea to Armentieres yet  [the hottest attacks are centred on Ypres and  [mainly against the trenches manned by Britishers.  This weeks attack is reported as the most  sanguinary of the war and will alas demand a  [great toll from our own brave lads as the defense  [haa been sustained by a constant series of counter  [attacks. So far the Germans have made practi-  [ly no headway altho here and there advances  [Have been made. '  On the line south of Armentieres to the Swiss  [frontier no change is reported and there has been  too apparent slackening of the German pressure,  [but reports are coming in that great masses of  [|he German cavalry have been, shipped east to  3ope with the Cossacksin Silisia^ and that^the Kai-.  fser is sorely troubled over the invasion of his  [richest province. _  Iii the Caucasus Bussia has invaded Turkey  Kwith an army said to number 600,000 men and is  being assisted,Jiy the Armenians who are everywhere organising and armed probably by Bussia.  The people of Constantinople seem already to  [realize the mistake that has been made and rumors of a serious revolt against the Young Turks  are persistent. Martial law has been declared in  [Constantinople and executions are taking place  [daily.   The Porte has announced the intention of  [following   close    after   the   Kaiser's    methods  lof      barbarous      inventiveness    and    accomplishment the horrible atrocities that have already  [been laid to the account of the German armies.  [The outlook for the stranger in Turkey is not  [bright for the moment, but the Turkish Govern-  [ment's days are numbered, and a better day is  ibout to dawn for that long oppressed section  [of this earth. .���������;.'.'."  Oh sea the defeat and sinking of Admiral Crad-  [dock's fliagship, the .Good Hope, with all hands  (750) is sadly confirmed."   The fate of the Mori-  ibuth* with another-750 men is still unknownj  .Ithougth it is almost certain that she too has been  sunk.    The Glasgow and Otranto are   reported^  hafe'from Magellan and from every quarter,/Brit^  [ish and Japanese vessels are closing in on the  rictoripus German squadron.   Their triumph, will  [}������e shortleved.  In the meantime the cruise* Emden has met  Rier fate at the hands of tlie Australian battle  [bruiser Sydney. After quite a plucky fight >the:  [Emden was driven ashore and destroyed. About  >ne half of her crew w'ere saved with the captain  rho were all taken prisoners and by order, of the  [Admiralty treated with ^the honors of -war for  their bilavery.   ' ,  A great eheer went up at,Lloyds when the re-  Ipprt pi the Emden's capture was posted and rates  [ojf insurance fell instantly 50 per cent.  The Koenigsberg, another small German  [cruiser that has been working havoc was run to  [earth by the7 cruiser Chatham lanil. bottled, up in  ta small river in -German East; Africa; behind the  [island of Mafia.  ^the<Levant^aBd-near*Orient the iiVench-andj  ^:X^********************A^***************}*^***J******il\ i ������^Mfr.fr.;~fr.:������fr444������H"3'*^^  %  "   '        " "    "  ' ���������  ::  4 ���������  4 ������  i '  I ,  4 ������  Is The World Getting -Better?  ���������From The Burning 3wrti  *  Tbif if an old question, but it hat liken on tomething of a new Mgnific&nce owing to  recent event*.

Slowly but surely, the day of payment draws  nigh when the greatest band of pirates the world  has ever known will pay the price of their rash  and bloody enterprise.  y  LONDON SCOTTISH BOUT THE ENEMY.

Despatches  from the front describe the advance of the famous corps to attack the German line near Ypres.  Under fierce artillery fire, they reached the enemy's trenches, when the Germans in overwhelming numbers came at them .with, fixed .bayonets.

I have summoned you now in order that,  sharing as I am aware you do, my conviction that  this is a duty of paramount and supreme importance, you should take whatever steps are needed  for its adequate discharge.  ''Since I last addressed you the area of the  war has been enlarged by the participation in the  struggle of the Ottomlan Empire;7 In conjunction  with my Allies, and in spite of repeated and continuous provocations I strove to preserve in regard to Turkey a friendly neutrality. Bad Counsels and alien influences have driven her into a  policy of wanton and defiant aggression, and a  state of war now exists between us. My Mussel-.  man subjects know well that our rupture with  Turkey has been forced upon me against my will,  and I recognize with appreciation and gratitude  the proofs which they have hastened,to give of  their loyal devotion andsupport.  X"Glorious Traditions.''  "My navy and army continue throughout the  iarea of conflict to maintain in full measure their  glorious traditions..

I confidently commend them to  your, patriotism and loyalty, and I pray that the  Almighty will give his blessing to our counsels."  Premier Asquith, declared that he doubted  whether the war would last as lotg-as some people  originally predicted, but- thtat it would last long  was certain.  "However, the longer is lasts," continued  the Premier, "the more the great resources and  strength which the Empire posesses will be available to fill the gaps, "to replace "the losses and  maintain our position. The Empire is on trial  and the experiences of the last three months have  inspired us with the confident hope tbat the longer  the trial lasts the more clearly we will emerge  from it as the champions of a just cause."  All Parties United.  4fe  Mr. Asquith expressed warm appreciation of  the support which the Government had received  from, all parties. Britain is engaged in an unprecedented contest, he said, and regarding the  justice of her sbare in this there is no difference"  of opinion in any .part of the Empire.  "The country has gone through much, ha3  learned much, has seen her troops hold a position  of difficulty and danger," the Premier.continued,  and he added:: '   (Continuedon page 4} ffiWMWcm'^i-uife.xw^^  la umWtU.1; :���������! *J<ii>aVfiAE.t130Jjt*.-Vi������. fit  *M������*-*������*W U(Uk44t, <_b������i������_. i.v 'IMJ- K^CMvCjVUtaifArf IrWiJM.iv. g^������;������^_ 1 ��������������� j tli-y, ft*f ^ .f f���������,- fJ, w ,t,, L L L, j  4_T, jiJC**)! 1S1A. )Ai>*UiaXMjta������������rt>������4������ii^ivv if  THE WESTEBN CALL.

Trading With the Enemy  Ottawa. ��������� Any person who,  during the war, trades with the  enemy, shall, on summary conviction, be liable to a year's hard labor and a fine of $2,000, and on  cdnvictiori or indictment be liable  to five year's imprisonment and  si0me. of, $5,000. X''XV  -':. !#_ court may, in any casie, order.the1 goods to be forfeited. This  itVtKe effect of an order in Council which appears in to-day's Canada Gazette.  ' Prosecution for an offence of  this character will be instituted  only by the Attorney-General of  Canada, who is the Minister of  Justice.  Some time ago Sir George Foster, Minister of Trade and Commerce, issued a caution against  indirect trading with the enemy.  Attention was called to the fact  that circular letters were being  sent'from points outside of Canada in the . interests of German  firms, and that in this indirect  way an attempt was being made  to continue trading directions  which had been prohibited.  Evidence has now come before  the department to the effect that  German" shipping and forwarding  agents, to compensate themselves  for cessation of business in their  home centre, have transferred  their offices to London and to  points in Canada. In this way they  are attempting to retain their business connections in competition  with British and other firms, until peace enables them to re-establish; themselves in Germany. In  order to do this they offer rates  that preclude British firms from  doing business on a reasonable  basis. While it would be difficult to interfere directly with  such practices, it is nevertheless  considered desirable for Canadians  to discourage acts of this kind by  assuring themselves of the standing of the firms with which they  bave occasion to do business.  ********************************'******** I************ ���������������  EDUCATION OF BLIND  IN THE CITY.

Is Dunkirk Impregnable  Dunkirk is said, by the Frinch  military expert Ardonin-Dumaget  to be impregnable in face of the  fall of Antwerp, Mauhenge, Liege  Namur and the new fortress on  which the French Government is  said to have spent $10,000,000 and  I which held out for but a few hours.  '' Anyone not a topographer,''  he says "in crossing these regions  would see little difference between  them and Belgian Flanders. There  are the same scrub oaks, the same  low ground and the same canals.  But let the Germans once reach  Uraus and all the opproacb.es to  Dunkirk suddenly will be transformed into'a vast lake 12 kilometres ( 7% miles) long by 6  kilometres (3% miles) wide. It  will be necessary merely to stop  the steam pumps and the windmills which now remove the water  from the depressions and open the  Dunkirk dykes at high tide.  "Moreover, the immediate environs of Dunkirk can be flooded all  along the canals by stopping the  outflow at low tide, and thus the  city itself could be attacked only  through a series of narrow causeways at an,enormous sacrifice of  men."

STBENQTB OF THTWESTERN ABHIES  At the end of October General French had at  lieast, 300,000^British soldiers, in; the ,fii-ing line, .  besides a large number of anxilliary troops on  duty-at the transport and supply base.  By December 1st it is estimated that this number will be increased to, at least 500,000 including  the British and native troops from India.  Expert opinion places the French and Belgian  armies on the-firing line at about 1,725,000, so. that  the Allies should have in the neighborhood Vof  2,225,000 to face a German tarmy of at least 1,750,.  000 men. This gives the Allies a slight preponderance in numbers.,  We tore told that tlie recently raised new German army has a total strength of 580,000 men, and  is made up principally by calling out the recruits  of 1915. /The remiainder are volunteers of all  ages. The army is divided into twelve corps,  and will be used as follows; Six corps for service  in Belgium" and FranceVtw'6 To'"form a reserve  force, and stationed around Strassburg, and the  ' other four to be employed in a special effort to  take Verdun. r , . /.,  France has still ^probably. 1,500,000 ofs men:  capable of bearing arms, most of them under arms,  who have never been to the front. There^are. the  very young men and the reserves of the older classes, who-are being trained lor repairing the wastage. France, therefore, aanlose one and a half  million men and yet maintain her gigantic armies  on the fighting lines at the same" strength they  have now. The same .thing may be true of Germany���������it probably is���������and, - therefore/ military  observers in Paris cannot believe in ia short and  decisive war. The immense-operations which  have already taken place, are looked upon, as  merely the beginning, as irterely the deployment  and opening engagements of a war which may not  reach its greatest violence until spring.;  PftJEgJSNT FOB PA8TO*.

The commander says :      '.'.'    'v"  X* I travelled on the surface except wheh^we  sighted vessels, and then I submerjged, nlotle^en  showing my periscope, except when it was  necessary to take bearings. It was ten minutes  after six in the morningwhen I caught sight of  one of the big cruisers of the enemy. I was then  eighteen sea miles north-westerly off the Hook  of Holland. I had'travelled'considerably'more  than 200 miles from my bjtse. My boat was one  of the old type,*but she behaved beautifully.  " When 1 .first sighted them they were near  enough for torpedo work, but I wanted to make  my aim sure so I Went down again. I got another flash through my pferiscope before I began  action. I soon reached what I regarded as a good  shooting point. (The officer was not permitted  to give this distance, but it was understood'to  have been considerably less than a mile, although  German torpedoes have an effective range of four  miles.)  " Then I loosed one of my torpedoes at the  middle ship. I was iabout twelve feet under  water and got the shot off in good shape,'my men  handling the boat as if she had been a skiff. I  climbed to the surface to get a sightthrough my  tube of the effect, and'discovered that the shot  had gone straight. and true-  There was a fountain of wttter,.,a burst of  smoke, a flash of fire, and part of the cruiser rose  in the air. Then I heard a roar and felt the reverberations sent through the water by the ejt-  plosion. She had been broken apart and sank  ip ������; few ininutes.. Her crew were brave, and even  with death staring them in the face they kept to  their posts ready, to handle their,useless guns,  for I submerged at once. , ?ut I stayed on the top  long enough to see the other cruisers, the Cressy  and the Hogue, turn and steam at full-speed to,  their dying sister.  " As soon as I reached my torpedo depth I  sent a second charge at the nearer of the oncoming vessels, the Hogue. The English.were playing  my game, for I had scarcely to moye Out of my  position, which was a great aid, since it helped ine.  to keep from detection. The attack on the Hogue*  went true, but this time the torpedo did notstrike  under the magazine, so for twenty minutes the  Hogue lay wounded and helpless on the surface  before she heaved, half turned over, and then  sank.  Sinking the Cressy.  "By this time the fchird cruisier knew, of  course, that the enemy was upon her and sought  as best she could to defend herself. She loosed  her torpedo defence batteries, both starboard and  port; and stood her ground as if more anxious to  help the many sailors who were in the water than  . to save herself. To defend herself against submarine' attack she steamed azig-zag course and  thjs, made it necessary for me to get nearer to the  Cressy. ~ ���������'!,���������'"������  " I had to come to the surface for: aview ;ajid V  I saw how wildly the ship's guns were being-  fired. Sraiall wonder, for they 4id not know  where to shoot, though one shot eaine -unpleasantly near to us. When I got within suitable  range I sent away my third attack. This time.I  sent a second torpedo after the first to make a hit  doubly dertain. ' '  " My luck was with me again, for the enemy  was made useless and at once began sinking by  the head?-Then she careened far over, but all  the time her men-stayed at their guns lookingtfor'  their invisible foe. They were brave, true to  their country's sea traditions. One of her boilers  exploded and she turned turtle.  "I hoped to entice the enemy by following  them now and then aglimpse of m^ into^a zpiie  in which they might be exposed to Capture or to  destruction by the German warships,but nHbough  their destroyers saw me plainly atdusk on the  22n4 and made a final effort to stop;Vine they  abandoned the pursuit, as it was taking them too  far from safety and needlessly exposing them to  attack.from our fleet and submarines." .������������������,."/  THE KAISER  George Stevens gives his impressions pf the  Kaiser, as he saw him. on the day of the autumn  parade, riding through the cheering crowds of  Berlin : " a face at once repulsive and pathetic,  so harsh and stony was it, so grimly solemn. A.  face in which no individual feature was very dark  but which altogether was. black as thunder. He  raised his gloved hand in a stiff mechanical salute  and turned his head impassively fromleft to  right ; but their was no courtesy in the salute, no  light in the eye, no smile on the tight mouth for  his loyal subject. He looked like a man without  joy, without love, without pity, without hope. He  looked like a man who had never laughed, like a  man who could never sleep. A man might wear  such a face who felt himself slowly turning into  ice.'X  ****************************************^  *  ���������  THE GERMAN IN CANADA ^  >***********************************^  :IJ  Ottawa.-���������The Government is takiig drastic  steps to stop pro-German comment and the publication of inaccurate and misleading pro-German  despatches in some of the German papers published in Canada, particularly in western Canada..  ���������. ���������  The attitude of a few of these papers has been,  distinctly anti-British since the outbreak of the  war.   The,Northwest Mounted Police report that  the alien pro-German and pro-Austrian population in some of the western districts are likely to  cause trouble unless the fomenting of trouble is  promptly stopped.    Warning has been sent out  to every GermJan paper in the west stating that  unless greater care is taken to preserve an absolutely neutral or pro-British attitude prompt action V  will be taken to summarily punish the offenders.  Another step to be taken is to require each   of  these papers to publish the British white paper-  giving the official statement as to the cause of the  wiar and the. British case against Germany.' ���������  ten thousand armed troops on the border. It was  of. no use to jbok to the United: States to defend  us, he stated. He also declared that the Germans  were holding meetings in a building in Toronto  .which was being watched by the police. " The. sit^  uationJs critical and we cannot afford to ignore  it," he concluded.    '    ' v  x  A QERMAN RAID  This was the startling statement made by Mr.  Frank Wise at a meeting of the Committee of  Municipal Research.      v  "The male German population of Buffalo is  about 8,000 above normal," declared Mr. Wise,  "and if they have gatherede there they have gathered at Rochester, Detroit and Port Huron and  other points along the line.  Throughput the United States there are several  hundred thousand Germans tat least, thoroughly  trained in the military movements of >the German  war machine. Where are they now? Does the  Minister of Militia know ? Is the Government prepared to say that Count Bernstorff has not carried  on a mischievous campaign against Canada?"  Mr: Wise contended thlat Canada should have  THE KING'S SPEEECH from Page 1  " Today we see them in a position in which, in  conjunction with our allies, France and Belgium',  they hiave frustrated absolutely  and defeated  the first designs of the German Emperor."  Regarding the sending of British marines to  Antwerp just before the fall of that city, the  Premier intimated that Mr. Churchill, First Lord:  of the Admiralty, subsequently would make a  more detailed statement, but Ihe said at once  that the responsibility for the expedition was  shared by the Government as a whole. Earls Kitchener, Secretary of State for War, was consulted  and everything was done with his knowledge and  approval and the expedition was a material and  most useful factor in the conduct of the dam-  paign.  Britain's Huge Army.  The Premier pointed but $hat the number of  men authorized by the three vbtes of the present  year, for the regular army���������not Territorials���������  was 1,186,000. Of that total all but 100,000 were  already in-the service of the King.      :     ''"  He declared that the primaryiaims of the Germans had been frustrated.  ::������������������������������������' 'The country '', said the Premier; '' now sees  the Allies in a position where England in conjunction with the Allies, has defeated the first designs  pf Germany. I doubt whether the war will last  as long as originally predicted."  CANADIAN MOUNTED RIFLES  Ottawa, Nov. 5.���������The Department of. Militia has decided to  mobilize at once four new regi:  ments, mounted, one in Manitoba  and Saskatchewan, one in Alberta,  one in British Columbia and one  in Ontario. The following statement deals with the question: "A  curious development pf the fight  now going on in France is the suspension of the role normally assigned to mounted troops.  "The fact is beginning to leak  out that the cavalry, armed with  rifles��������� are in the trenches, fighting  side by side with the infantry,  their horses, it seems, have been  withdrawn from;the zone of fire;  and the work of scouting has been  entrusted to the flying corps.  ���������( j   If o Official Explanation.  "No. official explanation has  bee������; ybuchi^fed j but there can  be little doubt whyv the xArmy  Council d(id not ask for the inclusion of cavalry or mounted  rifles" in the Second OverseasuCbn-  tingent is to be found in the tactical situation^ which has arisen in  Europe, in the western theatre bf  operation*..'  But sooner or later things will  change and mounted troops will  assume the role, which temporarily  theyXhaya^abandoned^ aridXelser_  where than in Europe there are localities ���������������������������" (Egypt, for example)  Where in the immediate future  they may be called upon to play  an important part. .'X  "It has,.therefore, been decided  to be ready; for eventualities and  without further delay to mobilize  four regiments of Canadian  Mounted Rifles." X  KRUPP'S GREAT GUNS.  COMING ACTIVITY  Canada is beginning to realize something of  the intense industrial .ctivity that must necessarily be one of the results of the war now raging  in Europe. .X , V  An order for 300,000 pairs of army boots has  been placed in Quebec by the French Government.  Before long every boot and shoe factory in Canada will be working night and day with a force  of men and women up to the limit of its possible  equipment.        ..-'���������'"���������'  A first order of 20,000 saddles for the British  Govn. has set our Canadian saddlers hard at work.  Toronto; up to -last week has handled nearly  $4000,000 of British Gold for 22,000 horses of the  "Warrior" class inspected and passed and sent  forward to Atlantic terminals for shipment to the  front. And this is,but the beginnings Industrial  and producing, Canada, has no need to Tepine.  This is "the day" of the manufacturers and farmers. ������  The great guns of Germany,  which apparently will open the  path to Paris if the French field  army cannot beat the German  field army, are claimed as an A-  merican invention, says Major  Redway, in the '������' Globe''. The inventor was Louis Gathmarin, of  Chicago, who offered the patent  to the* United States Government  in 1898. Experiments took place  at Sandy Hook, where shells  weighing 1,800 lb. and containing  500 lb. of high explosives were  thrown twelve miles. It is believed  that the United States purchased  some of the guns for coast defence.  They are said to wear well; and  the 4������eeret of their strength is the  filling of the space between a central cylinder- and an exterior  mould with contents of several  vessels full of molten steel, which  must be poured in at the same instant. This process demands a  mechanical accuracy which is the  monopoly of the Essen works it  would seem.  The Reichstag refrained from  debating that part of the Budget  which provided for these guns,  and therefore the success of the  siege operations has been as much  a surprise tp the German people as  io the .Belgians...

Temperance has a great hold on  the.British Anny in these days,  the bulk of the men at ��������� the front  being abstainers from choice.. 0-  |\ ver fifty percent of British Army  Temperance Association, and of  the men now fifchting about 90  percent are under pledge not to  use intoxicants while on active  service. To the others a very  small ration of rum is served.  Lord Roberts once said: "Give  me a teetotal army, and I will lead  it anywhere." Lord Kitchener  is of the same opinion, and has  bent every effort towards keeping  the soldiers sober. - The Royal Army Temperance Association has  now taken up the duty of instilling temperance principles into  the new armies now being formed,  the personnel of which have received little or no education along  tha. line.  Small pledge cards; "printed"in  blue and red, have been issued,  bearing on one. side the pledge  with a space for the name, regiment, and station of the man, and  on the other side, in bold letering,  flanked by the Union Jack, are the  words, "Don't ask me to take in-  |' toxicating liquors.' 'I have deck  ded to be a total abstainer on active serviceKfor my country." A  reproduction of both sides of a  card'are shown above.  Special representatives have  been appointed- by the Association  to deal with the great masses of  troops and facilities have been  given them to carry on their temperance work in the new army. The  result has been that Lord Kitchener's men have signed the abstinence pledge in large numbers,  and it is more than likely, when  the new army takes the field, it  will be as temperate as the regulars it will meet at the front.  It is to be anticipated that, despite the abandonment of the prohibition regulation with regardto  Canadian soldiers now in England,  that the men will be influenced in  other directions with the sahie  result, the production of a teetotal  force.  ���������������"  /'  A TEETOTAL WAB.  This is-a. teetotal war. Russia  has absolutely, forbidden the use  of intoxicants throughout the Empire *nd to the soldiers on service.  Germany, France, and Britain  have each adopted restrictive measures- concerning the use of liquor  by the troops in ithe field, Britain  most notably applying the methods .for securing a teetotal: army.  Three-fourths of Britain's soldi?  era are under a prohibition-plcdge.

They were simply given  the estiablished facts of the case,  and left to exercise their own  judgment. That they were overwhelmingly in favor of total abstinence is a great compliment to  their good sense. Those who have  not signed the total abstinence  pledge are limited to a small ration of rum.  In old days the British soldier  used to be noted 'for his capacity  for drink, and the frequency with  which he got into "scrapes" as a  result. V In later years, probably,  dating from the last Soudan campaign, when Sirdar Kitchener left  the drihk-swillers behind in Cairo  or had them shipped back to the  home depots, thereby eliminating  them' froni-1 chftnees-of< promotion,  Tommy. Atkins hasmoved-swiftly  towiards temperance. At *ne time  of the South African War forty  per cent of the soldiers on service  were total abstainers, and many  more were temperate in their habits. Since that war, Which sounded the knell of the "haw-haw"  officer and the non-com. or private who shone best at ceremonial  parades, and brought in the era of  severe professional training in all  :A ���������.:������������������.'

TOmmy to-day is a sober,  intelligent professional soldier^  The improvement in his conduct is shown by the fact that���������to  mention' the most, striking period  ���������in the three years ifrom 1909 to  1912, the vote for the maintenance  of    military   prisons   decreased  FRENCH LOSSES.  In France there is a^Jrink shop  to every 82 persons.  In 1881 France had 367,000 saloons and 47,000 insane. Says M.  Joseph Reinach, patriot statesman  of France: "Alcohol has immeas-  pnably increased criminality, tuber  culosis, poverty; has diminished  the physical and moral value of  the laboring class;,the army conscription is weakened by an ever,  increasing number rejected for  alcoholic degeneracies; 80 per  cent-of juvenile criminals, are offspring of alcoholic parentage; alcoholism costs in drink consumed,  in labor lost, in expense of sick  and insane, in repression of crime,  in idleness, etc., nearly three milliards a year." On no less an  authority than Gladstone we learn  that the ravages of drink in England are worse than of war, famine and pestilence .combined..  FRANCE FORBIDDING THE  SALE OF ALCOHOL.

Twentyrfive thousand Germans  perished during;the Franco-Prussian warV Fifty thousand is the  estimated number of ���������, German  deaths each year from alcoholism.  From 1877 to 1901 the number taken for drunkenness to the hospitals and insane asylums of Germany 'increased/five-fold, although  the population had increased but  one-third. Of all Germany's expenditure for food and drink 27.74  per cent is for alcohol���������five times  as much as for education.  coholic beverages in France may  be a result of the war. Transportation and sale of absinthe were  forbidden when the war began,  Hut traffic in the war intoxicants  was continued. The government  has now supplemented its original order with another forbidding  the sale^of any alcoholic drinks  similar to absinthe. There is a  marked movement in all parts of  France tending to perpetuate this  prohibition.
