Where are the brave ones who sacrificed pride and comfort to economy? Where are the experienced ones who drove big, expensive cars because they couldn't get a small, inexpensive one which could give them the accustomed thrills?

CuuuU E h v. adder, wiser men for their dreadful This school of thought has gained experience and are more apt to rea-ja lot of headway in Canada owing to, son than those who never came to ; circumstances over which Canada has ' had no control-namely the European | war. A majority ot tho army con- grips with the enemy. Close observers of the recruiting cannot fail to have remarked how tew ot the Cana- tractors naturally belong to It, gratt- dlan South African veterans enlisted j ers like Colonel John Wesley Allison for this war.

Once a soldier has learned ' staying at homo, tho gonial host of through iiain of body and stress of half-sea.s-over warriors who lay b.-tt-aoul and the evidence ot his eyes and , ties out on the table cloth with broad- the anguish ot his heart what an awful curse v;ar la, he can never have too much peace afterwards. He becomes tho most citizen anv country can have. Some of the most prosperous parts ot Canada are those settled by old soldiers, who after a manhood of war's alarms, were glad enough to go back to tho land, that refuge ot tempered spirits, the good brown earth which spells content-tnent, happiness, fatness and which is tho real strength of nations. nut the soldier has to bo convinced first. Until tho price of war in blood and tears and material treatmro is realized he rany have mistaken ideas as to the glory oi tho dreadful thing. It Is those half-aroused heroes who will bo confronted after tho war, as George Graham points out, by a school crumbs,-all these will bo for making Canada an armed camp, with day and night shifts. The honorary colonels, with whom this country Is freckled, not to say pitted, from tho Atlantic to the Pacific, will be enthuolastlc alumni ot the new school of thought. They will not want to hand their handsome uniforms over to tho moth balls. They will want to go on strutting. This is tho school of thought which George Graham apprehends will try to convert five hundred thousand sol-dlora with votes to tholr Ideas. These five hundred thousand soldiers may have ideas of their own, ideas hammered Into thorn by their now lite, ideas that may upset a few poli" 'ans, but whatever those Ideas are ti. will probably make tholr own right oi way, HeauwUlIo George Qrabain dooms it advisable to keep track i5n any reactionary school of thought which may be-hanging around while the soldiers do their thinking, Canada has got to do some straight thinking and do it quick. Since the booze was abolished this has become a harder country to govern. Tho workingman-and the worklngman one way and another is eighty per cent of the population-now that his chief drug is taken away will ap- i proach jjublic questions and public men In a more thoughtful if more Irritable frame of mind. It will bo harder to tool hlni. Statesmen will need to mind their p's and q's. Incidentally it is going to bo a harder country to steal in-for two reasons. Because tho people will bo watching more closoly and because tho country can't afford it. After-the-war finance Is going to bo a matter ot pinching pennies-there will be no margin for grafL Also there will be great need ot economy. Tho ministers will have to calculate their estimates to a dollar -there will bo little room tor over-votes and supplomontarles. Turriff ot Asslnlbola, another Liberal who faces the future with clear vision, suggested the other day that tho Hon, Robert Rogers might begin right now. The Hon. Bob has cherished In his department for two years overvotos aggro-gating ?34,000,000. He didn't spend the money because It was advisable thati the public works department should go slowly but ho kept tho money around to mako him feel easy. Nonchalant financing Indeed, oapec-lally at a time, when, as Turrift points out, Canada Is confronted with a pos-Bible war debt ot a pillion dollars and a possible railway debt of another billion, making tntorost charges of ovor a hundred million dollars a year. I Which is strictly in lino with George ' Graham's approhonsions of a mllllar-istlc school of thought which would want to spend a jiundred millions . more. Tho country does not need it' and can't pay tor it-two good reasons for not having IL II. F. G.
