V That this constitutes a danger in v inter-  national politics seems beyond dispute. Not that  war with tlie United States under Wilson and  Bryan is to be feared, for they are avowed  ''pacifists" of the most pronounced type;0but .  all the more conscious of their peaceful inten-  tions they are apt to; push negotiations   to   a  Soint that will raise considerable hard feelings  etween the great English-speaking peoples.;  Herein lies the danger, for that the Germans  are, secretly, organizing raids on Canada is as'  sure as that, we are at war with Germany.  What  they are waitings lor ia an American sentiment  that will make the success of such raids possible.  The American people   are   notorious "fttli-  ;busters,"   and   granted   a   hostile   sentiment  aroused over the British   and   French   fleets  stopping and searching steamers carrying American cargoes, the danger of raiding will become  ra^iteX^-==x="=Xxxra"^^  "The United States has no organized force  capable of stopping a resolute movement of this  kind and that the Germans are resolute has been  proved to a finish.  The Allies will not give way in their "right  of search." That is a certainty as long as  Kitchener is at the helm.'     v.  The outlook to avoid trouble of this kind is  not hopeful, and it may come far sooner than  any of us think.

Dear Sir: As there seems to be some confusion in regard to whether or not a candidate  for Mayor or Alderman must be entered on the  Voters' List, I would be glad if you would give'  publicity in your paper to the following quotations from the Vancouver City Charter:  The Charter provides that in 'addition to  other qualifications the candidate must be  "otherwise qualified as a voter." Then part, of  the qualification for a voter is that he or she 'lis  entered on the Voters' List." It would therefore  seem plain that no person can be qualified to  become a candidate for the office of Mayor or  Alderman unless entered upon the Voters' List  as a voter.  I have before advised enquirers that entry on  the Voters' List "in the ward in which they are  nominated" is not absolutely necessary; but being on the Voters' List some place in the City,  is, of course, necessary, but-I am told that there  is an idea prevalent that it is not necessary to  be on the Voters' List at all, which, of. course,  is a false impression.  Yours truly,  J. G. HAY,  v City Solicitor.  fm.  L"^3  ["^3  RflTJ  LM  ������������������ ;��������� ��������� ���������**���������<*.<:;<:������������������������.'  XV  my  sir  Cold vs. Warm Houses.  As has been stated, the cold  house is not satisfactory simply  because it is cold, but because  suitable conditions can be more  easily obtained. A house built  warm; enough to keep water from  freezing is, hard to ventilate.  Should the windows be used for  this purpose, the house is cold  anyway, and the extra expense is  hot practical. Ventilation must  be provided even if., the heat is  sacrificed. Should artificial heat  be introduced, it is hard to keep  it uniform; and experience has  shown, that there is more sickness  in a heated house, and poorer  fertility from the hens. It is not  claimed that a warm house may  not provide just as many eggs for  the time being, but the fertility  is poorer and the strength of the  germ weaker, and, if warm  houses are used, each succeeding  year witnesses a flock of poultry  with a weaker constitution.���������-Mac-  donald College.

MISCELIjANEOUS  MANY JEWS DRIVEN FROM THEIR HOMES.  Number of Refugees and Destitutes Due to War  Approximates Two Millions.  New York.���������Approximately 2,000,000. Jews  have been driven from their homes in Russian  Poland, according to a cablegram from the  Petrograd < office of the Jewish Colonization  Association, made public here today by the  American Jewish relief committee. The message,  in part, read as follows: ,,  "The Jews-of all Russian Poland, and the  greater part of the Jews in the provinces of  Kovno, Vilna, Grodno, Volniya, Pedolia and Bessarabia, are suffering. The number of refugees  and destitutes approximates 2.000,000- Extreme  distress also prevails among the Jews in the  Galician provinces occupied by the Russian  armies." -  CHOLERA   CULTURES   AS   WEAPONS   OF  WARFARE.  ��������� Foreign  Austria General Favored Their Use-  .        Minister Opposed It.  Petrograd.���������The Army Messenger, a newspaper issued hy the staff of the armies at the  front, has now learned that the use of cholera  cultures as a weapon of modern warfare was  proposed officially by General von Hkthendorf  for use against the Russians and Servians.  General con Hethendorf's proposal was presented to the supreme military council of  Austria and warmly opposed by Count Berchtold  who threatened that if such a message were formally sanctioned he would resign his official  post.  The Army Messenger, by the way, is the official organ of. the Russian army during this war.  It was created after the armies had got to work,  and is circulated practically only at.the front.  It is a perfectly trustworthy organ.

It is from the pen of a man who  all his- life has had business and  social connections in Germany,  France, Austria, Russia and Belgium, and who has held for many  years' a* seat, as Director .on the  Board of Industrial Companies in  Berlin, Cologne, Paris and Brussels. In later years his business  connections have been extended  to America, so that his opportunities for coming to a sound  opinion on economic and political  matters have been considerable.  He writes from Glasgow, Scotland, as follows:  "It seems quite funny to read  and answer now your remarks regarding the war and your hope  that it 'would not amount to  much.' It is the most Jiorible  war that has ever been waged on  earth���������at least so far aa is known  to history���������and the worst of it is  one cannot see the end.  "One .thing is certain, we can  never afford to make peace now,  until the Prussian military autocracy is ground into very fine  powder and their powers of working mischief in the next generation reduced to a nullity.  "So far, everything is going as  well for us as we could reasonably have expected and the prospects appear quite encouraging.  "Many people think the war  may last two or even three years,  but my opinion is the economic  pressure on Germany will soon  become so terrible that���������it is  quite on the cards���������we may have  peace signed in Berlin on onr  terms by July or August of next  year (1915).  "Of course N  is with his  regiment.  D has enlisted and  has received a commission as  Lieutenant in 'Tullabardine's  Horse,-' in which there are very  many gentlemen serving as privates. They expect to be ordered  to the front very soon now.  "Kitchener is a great man for  'training/ and I hear there was  nearly a revolt among the Canadian troops because they were  not sent out at once, but. were  sent to Salisbury Plain to train.  . "Little F got safely; back  from Germany a>out   a   month  after war brojee out.   C- only  got back fronr Austria on the  very day war was declared (Both  are girls).   Jj has joinedtyhe  artillery and has got a commission as Lieutenant."  This letter is dated the 18th of.  November, 1914. '  A SHEEP BUW,J3TJN.  'CANADA'S BALLY TO THE  EMPIE-E."

Statesmen and newspapers the  ..world over commented on it and cried:  "Bravo, Canadai" The Illustrated  London News said the arrival was "an  event unparalleled since William the  Conqueror." It was truly a magnificent spectacle to see this great fleet  setting sail, a sight never before seen  on Canadian shores. News of the departure was censored and kept so  secret that few indeed were on the  scene, to see the big ships weigh anchor  on the Oaspe coast. This spectacle  would have been lost to the people of  Canada had not The Family Herald  and Weeklv Star of Montreal had their  staff, of photographers there to reproduce it. Their photos of the greet  flotilla are the best piece 01 photographic work in the history of the art.  They secured a panoramic view showing miles and miles of the great troopships and battleships ss they swung  into line on the way to the Atlantic.  In this picture The Family Herald and  Weekly Star certainly possesses a  treasure. It will be the greatest Canadian Souvenir of the War. It is 13%  inehes deep by 46 inches in length. It  is reserved exclusively for Family  Herald and Star subscribers, and all  who become subscribers for 1915. The  picture will be. sent free to anyone  sending one dollar for a year's subscription to that great paper. The demand is already enormous, and every  home in Canada will want it. It will  be Canada's great memento, and years  hence, when neighbors are gathered discussing the great war, this picture will  point the story. It will have a priceless value. It is truly magnificent, and  full of patriotic inspiration.

The text of the message addressed to the Moslems in India  and in other British dominions by  the Aga Khan, declaring that  Turkey, having allowed herself to  be made the tool of Germany, no  longer ia the trustee of Islam, ia  given aa follows in the Calcutta  ' 'Englishman:"  "With deep sorrow I find that  the Turkish Government, having  joined hands with Germany, acting under German orders, is  madly attempting to wage a most  unprovoked war against such  mighty sovereigns as the King-  Emperor and the C?ar of Bussia.  This is not the true and-free will  of the Sultan, but of German officers and other non-Moslems who  have forced him to their bidding.  Germany and Austria have been  no disinterested .friends of. Islam,  and while one took Bosnia the  other has long been plotting to  become the suzerain of Asia  Minor and Mesopotamia, including  Kerbale, Nejef and Bagdad.  "If Germany succeeds, which  heaven forbid, Turkey will become -only a vassal of Germany,  and the Kaiser's resident will be  the real ruler of Turkey, and will  control the holy cities. No  Islamic interest was threatened  in this war, and our religion was  not in peril, nor was Turkey in  peril, for the British and Bussian  empires and the French Republic  had offered to solemnly guarantee  Turkey all her territories in complete independence if she had remained at peace. -"''_���������  "Turkey was the trustee of,  Islam, and the whole world waa  content to let her hold our holy  cities in her keeping. Now that  Turkey has so disastrously shown  herself a tool in German hands  she haa not only raifted herself  but has lost her position of trustee of Islam and evil will, overtake,  her. Turkey haa been persuaded  to draw the sword in. an unholy  cause from which'she could not  be -ruined, wh&tevtr else' bap-  pened, and she will lose* her position as a, great nation, for such  mighty sovereigns as the King-  Emperor and the Czar can never,  be defeated.  ' .:.'   '  "Thousands of "Moslems are  fighting for their sovereign al-;  ready, and all men must see ttat  Turkey has not gone to war for  the cause of Islam 6r ������or. the defence of her independence. Thus  our only duty as Moslems now is  to remain loyal, faithful and -  obedient to our temporal 'and  secular allegiance."  The Aga Khan is the religious  leader of the Ismailiah section of .  Mohammedans.  He is believed by  his followers to be a descendant  of Mohammed's daughter Fatima.'  Like his father and grandfather,  the latter the first Aga Khan, he  is   a   strong supporter- of the'  British Government in India.  He  has the title of "His Highness"  from the British Government and  has been decorated by- the Kaiser  and by the Sultan of Turkey in  recognition of his services.

In other words, the  United States believes .that the Kaiser and his  junkerdom are the aggressors in this greatest of  all crimes that has beset the human race.  And yet the great American people amoves  not a finger to quench this awful conflagration!  True, president Wilson has, by proclamation,  set apart a day on which all Americans should  father in their churches and pray to God to'  ring the war to an end. And we believe in  prayer; we believe also that while men pray they  should not faint and that when men or nations  really pray they get strength to work out the  answer to their prayers.    ,  We believe.that the United States never sent  V a truer prayer to God than when Pewey said:  "When you are ready, Gridley, fire!"  We also believe that all -the prayers the  United States can now utter will not lift the  "Curse of Meroz" that today Is"her's because  "they came not to the help of the Lord, to the  help of the Lord against the mighty."  God, or Providence, or History; or whatever  you like to call it, never forgives a blunder or  ��������� sin of - this description. - It is always- wiped out_  " in blood.  Can anyone doubt that had the United States -  ranged herself with Britain against the tearing  up of the treaty that guaranteed Belgian neutrality that Germany would have halted 1   .  Instead, the United States is busy praying  for peace and supplying the combatants, with.ail"  materials necessary to carry on a protracted war~  From the President's initiative, .the Halls of  Congress and the daily press, the idea seems to .  be that: "It's an ill wind blows nobody good,"  and that whilst America deplores and prays that  the war may cease, still she sees the unrivalled  opportunity of gathering in the commerce and  industries of the nations engaged' in the death  struggle.  Can anyone believe that the United States  will get away, with this?  Once to every man and nation comes the moment  t     ' to decide  In the strife of Truth with Falsehood, for the good  or evil side; >'  Some great   cause,   God's new  Messiah, offering  o each the bloom or blight,  Parts the goats upon the left hand, and the sheep  upon the right,  And the choice goes by forever 'twixt that dark-  '* ness and that light.  ���������James Russell Lowell.  ************'M^**********<i*****A'**^^^  I     BE PREPARED!  %        Every Canadian should protect himself and  * family by carrying a policy in  MUTUAL LIFE OF CANADA  Established 1869   *  ���������5s  f "CANADA'S ONLY MUTUAL"  t  %   -   For  rates  and  full information see our  l! agents, or   *  W.

X  Germany is demanding a new indemnity from;  Belgium, this time one of-seventy, million dollars.  From every point of view that we can see, it is  an abominable imposition. Bight after the outbreak of war, Germany, through her chancellor,  admitted that she was doing a wrong by invading  Belgium on her way to what she expected to be  the conquest of France.   She did not fight with  - Belgium, but she forced Belgium to yield her the  use of her highways to^ France and to the sea at  Ostend.   That Belgium was bound to object to  'this Germany cannot deny, having herself admitted that she was doing a wrong in breaking a  treaty, to which Belgium was the party of the  . first part, and by violating the neutrality of a  power with which she had no cause for dispute.  Having gone in'and murdered the Belgians���������and  it cannot be called anything else than murder to  ,jgo into a country with which one has no quarrel,  and kill its.-inhabitants because they object���������  Germany then proceeded to take from those inhabitants; mostly women and children who stayed  in their own homes, their supplies of food and  their farm crops.   Having done this and reduced  ' the people to starvation, Germany had tjie impu-  " dence to declare Belgium to be a part of' Germany, and after thus annexing it, to continue' to  treat the inhabitants as enemies by refusing to  provide them with food, though Germany  of-  . ficially continues to tell us that she has lots of-  food for her own people. * j&b if ^o pile injury, and!  insult/ on injury and instilt; Germany having al*  ready plundered the cities to exhaustion at the  ;,must&e of the nfle, now extorts, from a starving ,  nation, the sum; of seventy million dollars. i That -  is conduct becoming to brutes, not men.  Her evident.'intent is to-take from the Belgian people  everything they have, leaving them destitute, ^to  be fed and clothed by the outside world.   It is  this  conduct  on-the part  of Germany that is.  making people formerly inclined 'to look on/her,  actions with leniency, turn bitter against her.���������  Montreal Witness. _. ..  ������������������_!  tt*'  ������������������������������������������������������ ������������������������<,.+������������������������+���������+������������������������+.������������+������������������4������������,������a+������+  -.:;  ���������u,  Electors of War4 Six:  :fi "  Your influence and votes are so-' \  licited for  ���������ftftQMS k  as alderman for Ward Six during 1915.������  +���������+���������+���������������������������+���������+->.+���������.���������,+.+������+,+,+���������+���������������������������������������+������������������  License .

Britain has loaned the Union $35,(^)0,000 for  the purpose. Already recruiting has been brisk,  and Scottish, Irish and English regiments have  been raised to co-operate with the loyal. Boers  in operations against tne enemy in South Africa.  The Germans have invaded Union territory  and strongly entrenched themselves, the point  chosen being one that makes the carrying on of  a campaign replete with difficulties.  On the first outbreak of war a force of two  hundred and fifty Germans attacked the Union  post at Nakob, about three miles from the German military post of the same- name.' These  points are situa.ed on the Orange River at the  extreme southeast corner of Namaqualand (German Southwest Africa).  The Union garrison, consisting of only eight  police, resisted until their ammunition was entirely exhausted. The assault was made at daybreak, the Germans swarming up on two sides,  killing two of the garrison anil taking three  prisoners. The rest made good their escape, after  the defenders had fired the 700 rounds in their  possession. The Germans captured all the cattle  in the district and took all the natives prisoners.  Well over the British border are the Upington  kopjes, and these were held in force by the  Germans.  Boer Women Fight  Thirty miles down the Orange River, at Schuit  Drift, a German patrol attacked a force of  Afrikander refugees on an island in the river.  The Germans, after a brisk engagement, were?  repulsed, and left behind one sergeant killed, one  man wounded and one taken prisoner. The Germans called upon the Dutch-speaking people to  surrender,their cattle, but the Afrikanders went  into laager and defied the Germans. The Boer  women helped the men to throw up trenches, and  some of them 'assisted'on the firing line. Schuit  Drift is fifty miles from Nakob, where the Germans- first crossed, and shows that the invasion  of the Union of South Africa,is seriously con-/  templated by the military commanders bf German Southwest Africa. r t  Airship Ovar Johannesburg.  Johannesburg is about'450 miles from the  German border, and .the distance could be  covered in eight hours by a Zeppelin airship.V  Mysterious aircraft have been sighted" at different places far from German territory, and one  circled over Johannesburg, hovering over"^ the  city for nearly an hour, and then disappearing  iu the direction of the West Rand.  / Botha {to Command,   x  '.,-  General Botha, the Premier,'-will have com-'  mand of the Union troojjs that are to form the  expedition for the invasion    of    the   German  colony, and a strategic line of railway is being  built from Prieska, in the Cape, to Upington, on  the Orange River, which will have an important  bearing on the South African campaign.    Sand  storms and sand dunes are the natural characteristics of the area between Upington and the  border:   Feyr undertake the journey save in the .  wet season,  as,  apart from the Orange Rivfer,  there is no water available for many miles.  Horses and mules give place to camel teams, and  it is here the camels supplied by India may be  employed in transporting guns and supplies. It  is a fortnight's trek from Upington to the border  and' water must be carried in carts. A species  of melon that abounds in this arid area supplies  moisture to travellers who'have run short of  water. But sand is the staple product, and all  the police troopers in this Sahara ride camels.  For hundreds of miles on every hand the sand  dunea rise and fall with monotonous regularity.  A few kraals of Hottentots herding goats that  draw sustenance from the parched roots of, the  "salt bush" are met with occasionally, but these  are the'only livings things encountered on the  march through the desert.  The "Dead Ind" ef South Afriea.  . ���������*  MOSLEM EGYPT'S LOYALTY.  ������������  Rietfontein is^the last police station between  Upington and the German border, and is only  equalled in its dreariness by the "dead end" of  Australia.  It is through this territory that Botha will  likely strike at the Germans, and the difficulties  of his task are appreciated by all military men  who know the country. But the obstacles in the  way of' the German invaders are equally great.  They must bring their supplies long distances  over the sands and carry water for man and  beast. The Orange River is a big asset, as it is  nearly three-quarters of a mile wide at certain  places during the wet. season. An important  oasis, Eahamas, lies between Upington and the  border. Eahamas has large areas under irrigation, andfis a Dutch Reformed Church settlement.  It will probably figure in the fighting between  Botha's force and the Germans. It has an inexhaustible water supply all the year round from  the Orange River. After leaving this fruitful  oasis the traveller must journey by camel to the,  border. The whole country round is like a petrified seal  Germans 3,000 Strong.  In selecting this district as the point of invasion the Germans will be handicapped from the  outset by the necessity of taking their commissariat with them. They are reported to be several  thousand strong, ^.'bushman's diet of insects  and dried melons does not offer'much sustenance,  tb an army of 3,000 on the march. Every fifty  miles may be found a farm set in a sea,of sand,  but the family living on it can hardly obtain a  livelihood.. There is nothing to spare for the invading locusts. The long summer is now on, and  will continue to the end of April. The summer  heat rises to 110J degrees in the shade, but the  nights 9>re cool. Night marches, and attack at  dawn will be the order of battle in this sand!  swept,, sun-baked region.  Native* Dislike Qermans.  Thousands of the natives have fled during the  past years from German territory, and have been  absorbed by the Union of South Africa in mining  and agricultural industries. German rule is not  liked by the natives, and they escape from under  it where possible.  Strategic Points.  Upington, Prieska, Eenbardt, the Orange  River���������these places on the fringe of civilization  will iu the coming campaign acquire historical  interest, for it is in this region the Germans have  elected to. harass British South Africa, and so  prevent the Union lending material assistance to  the Allies on European soil.  Turkey "Doomed to Destruction  Cairo. ��������� The Council of All  Chiefs of the Ulema, composed of  the -leading Moslem religious authorities in Egypt, has published'  an important proclamatipn urging  Egyptian Moslems-to maintain a  calm and peaceful attitude. ^��������� **���������  After invoking Allah  and his,  pro'phet, who counselled mankind'  to love peace and avoid ������trife, the  Ulema remind their   flock   that.  Providence has spared. Egypt the  horrors   and   sacrifices   of   ther  present war,, which has spread to  one state after another; therefore  it is their duty to remain calm  and confident, to   behave   with  discretion, and to let reason guide  their   acts, to   avoid gatherings.  when idle words might be spoken,  and to shun intrigues and sowers  of  discord and  ignorant or interested counsellors  from whom  good cannot come. v  The appeal is signed by twenty-  seven Ulema, including the Sheik-  Islam of Egypt, who is also Rector  of Al-Azhar, the famous university, the Vice-Rector, the Grand  Mufti, and all the chiefs of different, ritete. .;  The, chief religious Shieks of  the Soudan have spontaneously'  addressed a communication to the  Governor-General expressing on  behalf of the whole population  their loyalty to the Government.  They refer generally to the benefits conferred by British rule, and  in particular to the sympathy  which has always been shown to  their religion, the justice which  has been meted out to them, the  educational advantages given  their children, and the help afforded to the pilgrims to Mecca.
