New York Irish Voliititeers
New' York, Dee. t3~A largely attended
meeting of the N. Y. Irish volunteers at Terrace
Garden was broken up by armed deputy-sheriffs. The meeting, 3000 strong; of whom half
were Germans, was intensely anti-British and
culminated in a physic! attack on the reporters
present who were only saved from grievous
bodily injury by the intervention of deputies.
About 300 Irish volunteera were present in full
uniform and armed with heavy swords. At
one stage of the proceedings "Die Wacht am
Rhein"waa sung and the audience exhorted
. to join the Irish volunteers and arm themselves
to fight in Ireland's fcomihg war against Great
Candidates for Reeveship
Edward Gold definitely announces his candidature for reeveship of South Vancouver.

the position today'?��� German commerce has been
swept from the seas, and the finest steamers inc

New York and Boston harbors.
Why, then, is it that American opinion has set
so steadily from the;outset in   favour   of   the
Aliies>   Our Government has done very little to
guide American opinion.   We sent out a cheap
edition of our Foreign Office papers; and employed two or three novelists upon a sort of semiofficial literary expedition.   Beyond this We did
, nothing.    Great Britain is    fortunate    in   her
American Ambassador.    Our Minister at Washington,  Sir Cecil Spring Bice,  is, happily for
England, not like Count Bernstorff.    He is not '
an idealist, and is not fond of the interviewer;
neither is he a lecturer.   He is "a practical, levelheaded man of affairs.    The real reasons why
the Germans have made no   headway   is   that
England had an unanswerable case.    Our cause
was right.   We went to war in defence of our
treaty obligations; in support of a small nation
whose territory was wantonly invaded; and we
stood face to face with the immoral plea that

' "- 4| ^  ********************************************#**************<  On August 3, 1914, forty-eight hours after.the,  Swiss Federal Council had issued' orders1 for the.  mobilization of the entire army, 300,000'men-stood  at their appointed posts, ready to defend the sac-  - red neutrality of their country.'*. -The ai xvmplish-  ment of .this feat won the admiration bf ,eyen thi<  . much engaged belligerent natlansr/or it famishes  u eloquent nroof of Swiss military discipline and:  ���������, efficiency;\ 0nl the Swiss mobilisation been ca.r.  , tried out .with less promptitude, it' is -very ^owtit>  f������l whether the .territory of the little Alp6ie>rer  public would not have been invaded right at the  beginning of German-French hostilities.,  ' Jt is interesting to note that in Europe^Swit-  . zefland. with a population of 3,800,000, maintains  the largest armed force proportionately. France  comes second, Germany and Sweden third. The-1  other countries maintain from one soldier to every  110 inhabitants, in the case of Russia, to one soldier to every 170 inhabitants, in the case of Great  Britain. -   '    '  The per capita cost of the Swiss army in J9t0  was $2.25 of the British army $4, of the French  army $3.35 and of the, German army. $������.10. The  per, capita expenditure of the United States ia  aboutfl, and according to the statistics of 1912;  this country possesses an army of 176,016 including  all non-combatant troops and the coaat artillery.  The reason why the eost of the Swiss army is  comparatively so small is entirely due to a rational military system; a system which is both  economical and democratic in the truest sense of  the word.  The' army of the Swiss Confederation is a citizen army. Every Swiss citizen is liable to military  service from his twentieth to his forty-eight  year. The federal forces consist of "three divisions,? the so-called "Atiszug", the "Dand-  wehr"- and the'*'Jjaihdstrum".'"���������'���������To the;Auszug  or Elite belong the young mien up td the age  , of 32; the Landwehr of First Reserve comprises  the soldiers from 33 to 40 years of age and in the  Landstrum or Second Reserve are incorporated  vthe men from 41 to 48 years of age.  X No Swiss citteerfc^  unless he is physically unfit or under the stipulated height of 5 feet 1 1-2 inches. Citizens who are  liable to do military service and who are prevented from filling their duty on account of their  residence in a forign country -are obliged to pay  a regular military tax. This tax amounts to 6  fanes per man, with the addition of 1.30 francs  (30c) for every 1,000 francs of private fortune  he may possess.  )tntntsitiif.ilistk%r  VTVTr'l  I' ���������*  The. rich and thej>qor have to serve side by  x Bide and there isno choice ,in the service, except  that each man is at liberty" to. decide whether he  ��������� would like'Jo belong'to the; infantry or cavalry,  - as the, cavalry soldier has generally, to provide his  ,;own hopae*^    ," -:      - ';- ' -       ' A *  s i������\ -Military instruction is imparted at the expense  /oftne S^i8s^Confe4eration by a special instruction corps, aided by the'off������cewko!/tbe higher and  lower rank! The year's recruits are immediately  sent to one of the schools for recruits established  in different citiea throughout ihe country Those'  intended for the infantry receiv������ta preliminary  training lasting 65-days;-.cavalrywen h,ave to re-,  main for .90 days; field and mountain artillery  men 75 days, engineers 75 days, transport men 42  v days and ambulance men 60 days.  Since the year 1907, when a new military organization took place in the Swiss army, tbe cavalry and all the forces of the Auszug have to attend a yearly repetition course lasting 11 days.  Formerly the cavalry alone had these yearly  exercises, and the other sVvices attended a repe- _,  titiojr course every-otber- year. The -Jjandwehr  forces also have thejr repetition courses Vnt in  their case they take place only once in four years.  Special courses and training are, of course, ���������re-  quired in the case of soldiers'who are desirious of  advancing to a higher grade. There is' a central  military college at Thun for the instruction of  officers of the general staff and another for regimental .officers. "Infantry instructors receive  their training in a school of that description at  Basel and there are furthermore courses for shooting (especially for officers), also for ambularce  work etc.    ��������� ������������������.v.'"-X'.->x--; ;���������  .Every soldier is obliged, morover, to do a certain amount of rifle practice each year, and A record of his capacity in this line is carefully kept  for him. It is therefore not to be Irondered at that  all. the men are eager to produce good results.  There is hardly a village which has not its own  "SchutzengeseHschaftXi;e.rits ownlife chrtrand  all these men take a pride in doing as much extra -  practice in rifle shooting as time will, permit. This  is the reason why the Swiss markesmen show a  well nigh infallible accuracy and this also accounts for the fact that Switzerland attained for  the fourteenth time out of. sixteen the world's  championship on the occasion of the rifle-shooting contest at Camp Perry, Ohio, in September,  1913.  A WARNING TO FARMERS  DEATH MAT LUBK IN SILOS.  The ."Journal of the American  Medical Association" calls on papers with.a rural circulation to  sound a warning in regard-to the.  ���������silo, which is a common structure  on the modern farin. It-appears  that carbon" dioxide gas, most  deadly; forms in silos, and that  fatal accidents are likely to. happen  if silos are not carefully ventilated  before being entered by human  beings. It appears that out in O-  hio such an'accident has happened  costing the lives of four workmen,  who were employed on ihe farm  of a. state hospital. These men  went UP the ladder on the outside  of the silo to an open door about  twelve feet from the top and jumped down on to the silage, theV top  of which was about six feet below  the door. Five minutes later two  other workmen did the same thing  and" found the first fomk uricon������-  scious.   The bodies were at once  taken out_ and the .doctors in the  hospital were' immediately summoned, but were unable to resus-  ciate any of the men. Tt is supposed that the carbon dioxide gas  bad formed during the night, form  ing a layer some six feet deep, into  which the men jumped. The medical journal says the same thing  may occur on any farm with a silo,  hence the necessity for thorough  yentuationX-St. Albans (Vt.)

Her military and-naval preparations are and  Jiave been very apparentfor the last five or vd  yeara.   It ia now known in taurines* circles that  for more than a year previous to the outbreak  of hostilities German bankers and "big business  Germans all over the world were^p*ep$j*ing for  "The Day," aa well as the army and pavy.  *   It waa known aaid openly asserted iii jnany  quarters that Germaiiy waa preparing to wage a  ruthless wax for universal supremacy, buVthat  the   whole   German   nation���������Kaiser,   officers,  preachers, professors, philosophers, cdnservatives,  centrists, agrarians, liberals; and social democrats  ���������would lay aside evfiiy principle ;������of honor, _,  Aonesty and civiUrationViind   become   a   great  "rubber' band," restf^^fe^V ������od    ������������7  through any method* that MM help them, to ,  conquer not only in militanr ntattew but also in  ^umeree, was not ,e*eiis4^^  Germano-phobiflt centres.

The fruits of German philosopher and religious  jieg&tions are now before tjie "wprld and to  destroy the froit without destroying ;th^ source  from which this fruit has come is plain madness.

They are engraved into the letter^  tod spirit of, ito doctrine and life- Without^  their assertion and activity its'existence and itsV  right for existence cease, ^hey "carry in them the������t  vitality of Protestantism, the culture of spirituati  life, the progress ^of civilization, the fact of civiFi  and religious liberty,'and the purity, Scriptural  reality and influence of the church of Christi.  The fundamental principles of the Reformation^  ^ar'e:     u. /   ^  1.   The absolute supremacy of the Word of  God.   The Reformation, unchained the.Bible.   Ii  dethroned councils and vaticans.   Whatever help\  or illumination may be in, Christian conscious^  ness ' or cultivated scholaisticism    or - _ drdained.  priesthood, the supreme unquestionable authority,  iniall matters of'faith or morals is the Word oil  God.  It is' the dominant authority in the soul of*  the Christian, the.one textbook,of the ,chijrch|!!  and the?supreme-study fl*tii4 lninuter.' This t*%t  thority should, be emfiheaized.   The formula' ofi'  Chillingworth contindlsitrO be the expression o������-  our faith:    "The Bible, the whole Bible, and-  rfothing but the'Bible is the religion of Prof  testants.,"   Tb^e open Bible is the ehart of o  American civilization, its ethics are onr efficient  protection for~ public virtue  !  2. The absolute supremacy of the grace ol  Christ. Justification is by faith alone. Thl  ^toning tMWk^&^if^Qfcfa.  isame principles be  preserved. <���������   fccclesiasticism  must be rebuked in any attempts for recognition  and   power   through   partisan   politics. , The  Christian citizen should guard the money   and  offices of the state against any encroachments by  sectarian ambition, and our public officers should  be compelled to hold churches aloof from the  suspicion of such influences.   The life of the republic lies in the separation of church and state.  The five hundredth anniversary of the life and  work bf John Huss gives welcome and needed  occasion for the, reaffirmation of the principles  of the Reformation.   We suggest that during the  coming winter and spring this special emphasis  be made throughout the church.   Let'the biographies and histories of. the Reformation have  large place in the literature of the  Christian  home, in the columns of our church papers, the  study classes of our missionary young people and  men's societies, in*the themes of our pulpits, and  on special occasions of presbyteries and synods;  in order that the trust of the American republic  may be conserved, that our free institutions may  ' be transmitted in integrity   and * righteousness,  and the church of Christ may be held distinctly  and exclusively to its supreme mission.  -'   This is one of the most remarkable'documents  issued by ��������������� Protestant body in the last quarter  '. of a century and bears the impress bf a n������w, life f1  ' in Protestant church circles that must be������ gratifying to* ev^ry lover of Truth and Liberty.  ntt-  A Letter from Sir R������W.

Regardless of class, one  scarcely meets a^man or,woman here who does  not devoutly wish"and pray for Germany's downfall."        '"'..���������  My next correspondent is the president of one  of the largest-and best known railways in the  United States.^ He'says :^  "I share the belief that the Germans in building up their Navy are laying their plans for us  quite as much as they are, for Ijlngland; and that  Germany has' her teyes on. South. America, and  proposes some day to, question the Monroe Doctrine with fleets and armies. } If, however, she is  :, chastened, $ri I devoutly hope will be the case,  we shall not need to worry. .Public sentiment in  America is 'almost unanimously in favour of the  Allies."-.  A w������flI-kiK)WB[ banker in Chicago,, who visits  Germany every year, .and left there a few days  before^Wr was'declared,1 writes:   .  "England^ has-our full sympathy   and   beat  wishes for.jits suedess in the present war, which  >w$%roi_ght:on by^Germany."

IM������ MMIMHI111111III  . & DOUGLAS  ri-'    ^ i<t       * /1^ -  From the "SUN"  kkJv,,}  A REAL CANDIDATE.  The annouticeinent tbat Mr. G. S. ,  Douglas' will be a candidate for the  mayoralty is''the best news of the  week,''locally' at least. Mr. Douglas  is, essentially the type of man who  does honor to  the office  and  he,  of  .. the three candidates in the field is  the only one who has been sought out  by the representative citizens of Vancouver. Although he occupied the  occupied'the mayor's chair in 1909, he  is far from, being a professional politician, and had retired definitely from  public-life. Strangely enough, his opponents also have occupied the chief  magistracy, in Ithe city, both for two  years, but they are of an entirely different type. Both Mr.^Baxter and Mr.  Taylor are office-seekers of the first  degree. They have become perpetual  candidates, it would ' seem, and although they may be admirable men,  it cannot be said that they are creditable representatives for a city as large  as Vancouver. Mr. Douglas is sincere .  in :fcfc desire to keep out of the ring -1  aad Tt is greatly to his credit that he  permitted himself to be over-ruled.  Vancouver needs a strong nian at  the halm, particularly a man who has  made- a success of his own affairs and  .whoscan be tristed with  the larger  ' and more responsible duties of a large  ' city.    Neither; Mr. Baxter    nor    Mr.  Taylor has - eVjBr- distinguished himself  during 'aiformeiC;term of office. Neither  ' can claim, to lie" a success In his own  ' business' and _ from alt appearances it'  is {made obvious that" they are in poll.  V ties' for tbe salary that goes with it,,  Mr. Baxter has   been    a , jaek-of-all-,'  trades.'*"Lawyer, school teacher^ furniture dealer and professional politician.'  ,  His regime at the city hall has been  " >>��������� racked by no constructive TefornXof   t  ;any deseriptionXWitb the* prospect of ^ ,  the openingrof tha Panama Cana} right V ,.  before liim, the, mayor lias , done ncFV  thing to .atimtt; \>mtom$q ���������������T������ie; t.-1  greatest vrvr affopif* mayor in tlie <���������;X  city of Vanetasver. ,wa l>ave had fcard  time's and me������y*misfortuneBf bat. tlie - *.  mayor h������������ 4<me ootWucto prepwe for  the good times that1   are   bound to -*������������������  come.   We .cannot- blame'Mr. - Baxter ��������� "  for tbe financial .eonditions of Vancouver.   He most be given credit for ,,  accepting,a policy of practical.charity  in the matter of' land clearing, bat it'  cannot be sai<l that he himself has,    '  been acti"������.in any measure.   His obviously theatrical scheme  of cutting  salaries at the end of. bis present term,   ,  thereby censing considerable hardship1 '  to certain classes of civic employees,  will not bring him mucfc applause.  Mr. Baxter is a man of small calibre.  He is a shrewd ward politician and  _has some superficial attainments as_a   'speaker and handshaker. He has done .  the city no great damage, unless his  advocacy'������f the False Creek may-be  considered in tbe light of- a mistake,  but he baa done the city no good. His  opportunities have been many and results few. -   '  As regards Mr. Taylor, one must regard him as a sort of annual disease.  He runs for mayor as a part of his  business and has been successful formerly. Swung in the balance with Mr.  Baxter, one would be doing neither an  injustice by saying tbat their weight  is about equal, although Mr. Taylor's  capacity for doing damage is somewhat  greater than is that of his rival. Mr.  Taylor, however, has been an absolute  failure in his various undertakings. He  is one man ia whom the citizens can  place but little trust, for he has been  found wanting too often, and, if one  might attempt a mild pleasantry, too  much.  Next year should witness a remarkable change in the city's affairs. The  Panama Canal will be open; there will  be large expositions at both San Francisco and San Diego, and there will be  a rush of immigrants to this country.  What has been done to prepare for -  thesef What has Mr. Baxter donef  What reason does he advance why he  should be re-electedt He has had two  years and has accomplished���������nothing.  Let us make 1915 a big year in the  history of Vancouver. We need a man  such as Mr. Douglas to take charge of  affairs and put the city on a sound  basis. A man of scrupulous honor and  unquestioned ability, lie is entitled to  the strongest support from the citizens  who have the best interests of Van- (  couver at heart.  Your Vote alict  Influence as  Chas.Dqug.las,  Mayor of Vancouver in 19$*  Candidate for Re-Election, 1915  : ___i,. ������������������������  MMMMMMM.  Vole for On S, DOM  '*JTC>  LOWER TAXES  From the  "News-Advertiser"  Another candidate for mayoralty  honors is definitely in the field, the  newcomer being Mr. C. S. Douglas, who  was mayor of th^ city in 1909, and  who was defeated in January, 1910, by  Ex-Mayor L. D. Taylor. Thus two former opponents will again cross swords.  Mr. Douglas has stated that among the  planks in his platform will be retrenchment in civic expenditures and  the reduction of the salary of mayor  and aldermen.  From the "Province"  CHIEF MAGISTRATE  OF CITY IN  ���������   1909 PROPOSES TO RUN ON  ECONOMY TICKET.  Mr. C. S. Douglas, who iwas mayor  of Vancouver in 1909, has announced  himself as a candidate for that office  again in January.    ,  He Btated his platform this morning  to be civic economy, reduction of the  salaries of mayor and aldermen,, and  ( the, equalization of taxation. He told  , The Province that he favored a return  to the 25 per cenk tax ��������� on improvements which was in viogue during his  last term of office. X'N '/  "It is, only fair that >e" should make ���������  tbe: owner of the big building pay for  the extra expenditure, incurred ,on* his -  behalf," he  said..   "To tax/the  im-v  provements   would   be fairer on'> the  poor man." "    ,'        ', -   ���������  He added that it will be -imperative  to reduce the tax rate to, 20 mills next  , year, and to do this the tax jam im-  provemente would be necessary./-_ He  favored reducing "the salaries of mayor  and aldermen considerably/ although "  .he did not say they should be wiped  out entirely. When be was mayor In  1909 he had to spend a great deal entertaining the city's guests. He, with  one or two others) were hosts to Lord  Strathcona that year.   ,  "We want a mayor that does not  favor tbe Canadian Northern Railway  too much," he added. "We must see  that it lives up to its agreement."  He; had not wished til    stand    for  mayor, but at the solicitation ,of some  of his friends yesterday, be bad con-  '~sented"to be a candidate "  MB. C. 8.  DOUGLAS,  A  FORMER  *ATO| ANU WHwWoWW  CmZEN, WILL ENTER  FIELD FOR CHIEF  MAGISTRACY.   '  Another hat is in the mayoralty ring.  Mr. C. S. Douglas, who had resisted all  attempts to bring him into tbe campaign, finally succumbed.to the insistence of his many friends yesterday  and last evening announced himself  definitely as i candidate.  Thia will come as good news to the  citizen's of Vancouver. Mr. Douglas  when mayor in 1909, proved to be one  of^the most efficient and'popular men  ever to have occupied the mayoral  chair in Vancouver. Mr. Douglas has  been intimately associated with the  growth and prosperity of the city and  has done a great deal to further the  best interests of the community.  "Some retrenchment of civic expenditures, the reduction of the mayor's  salary, as well as that of the aldermen,  and the equalization of taxation, will  be the main; planks of my platform,"  said Mr. Douglas last 'evening. "I  don't believe in cutting down the-firemen, policemen and ' other underpaid  employees of the; city, but I do think  that in other cases it works no hardship."    ;X'- .-���������-���������:   :V::---  V       .
