Wo certainly should take It moro seriously. We should glvo moro of our blood to assist the Mother Coun- try. We have been far behind in oar contributions ot native sons. There has been too much reliance upon Bri- tain to do It all. When Britain has sent every we will bo prepared to do our bit is the consoling excuse of somo of our native born. These chaps should get it out ot their heads that this is n war of the tight little island alone. It is the Empire's war. We have talked about the Empire .md its unity In the past, and we have applauded the sentiment. It the Em- pire is what we have claimed It is, then it is the Empire's war and it our business to participate in it just as much as the British born. So let us now as Canadians determine to _____ do our part more freely and more dav celebrated the eve of that earnestly in. the future than in the versarv by activity in three seas which demonstrated that they are still a live factor in the war.

Twaddle1 Germany would have been at our throats if she had the opportunity no matter whether we were joining in the flght or not If she could she have ravaged us as she did Belgium That it is our war is a real, undlsputable fact. Then as a part of the Empire it was our bounden duty to stand tehind the Mother Country The Mother Country has been our protector in times past.

The capture of Pelagqsa ;by the Ital- ans therefore, regarded as most mnortant. The people of Bohemia be known as Bohemians, not. Czechs, which is a corrupt form of Cecil. The appellation Czech is regarded gen- erally in Bohemia as an Austrian-in- timation to the -world that bohemia s part German. .In the 'census ol 1910, inhabitants declared [or the Bohemian and for the German tongue.

CHASE SANBORN, MONTREAL CONTINUED KROM PAGE" FIVE. Jiough I have dear friends serving In both arms ot the patrbttc hostB who are fighting voluntarily for our coun- try. "I also have relatives of German extraction, who ur.e forced to fight against these friends of mine, for their Fatherland, but there is a vast difference in the motives which havo actuated these people. Our friends, English, Irish, Scotch, Australian, Canadian and French, as well as Ital- ians, are fighting for the life of true Democracy upon the face of this earth of ours, while those who fight agaiust us are fighting for the enemy of that the perpetua- tion of a tyrannical monarchial gov- ernment, which means the suppres- sion of the judgment of the people, and the delivering up to a few ambi- tious, proud and egotistical tho destinies of the deluded people who are so unfortunate as to be uner their power. "I see before mo here tonight oth- jrs who, I have no doubt, have Ger- man blood flowing through their veins, iul they are men who have left the fatherland to be rid of that kind of, government, and who have found here, as in the United States and oth- er places In the world where English ideals and liberty are found In their application to every-day life, and 1 am sure that .these people who are tied to the o'id land by the ties of are as loyal to the principles of free- dom as exemplified by the institu- tions of our land, as are we who have never actually experienced the dif- ference in the two forms of govern- ment. "Sir, 1 cannot agree with a former speaker that there can be any doubt as to the final outcome of tills awful conflict which is being waged with such fury and carnage be- tween the forces of despotism and those of Democracy. Nothing, in this age of enlightenment and liberty, can for long resist the for good that are being united throughout the world against the ad- vance of the enemy of real Democ- racy. Every resort to frightfulness '-departure from civilized methods of conflict. draws closer and unites with stronger links the ties, that bind all the liberty-loving people of an outraged world together in defence of all that Is worth living for or dying for.. "Sir, I have been watching the con- duct of my little friend upon my right [Dr. BonneM] for many years. 1 have watched him in his professional rela- tions to the employees of our com- pany; I have watched him in his re- lation to the community as a citizen, east and north of Foremost, in tact, .1 the south was filled with armers who along le right lines, who were careful ajid ndustrious, who were in fact, the jatj0n to the community as a citizen, ighesfc type of farmer that any coun-j j bave found him in both of these ry could wish tor.

"I have said that. I have watched the Doctor. We may receive the best of educational advantages; we may acquire professional skill of a high order, but without the faculty of ob- servation, of our educa- tional attainments would not avail us as servers of our fellows. "It is from watching the actions of others; the observation of the his- tory and conduct Of nations that .we obtain our knowledge of right and wrong among the nations of the earth, and it is this knowledge that brings us together tonight to hid God speed to our friend, the Doctor, who is joining all those who. have gone be- fore him Into the carnage and tur- moil of battle with, a free w.ill to pre- serve for us the. freedom which can be secured only by. the triumph of the cause of univarsal Democracy. In conclusion, I revert to the n concuson, toast, 'the Army and to which my friends, Col. MacKay and Captain distributing rooms, from which thej distribute the shipments by traus- p'ort. The work has come to be re- cognized as a necessary one, and the commission is given every possible and by the officers. Jliss Arnoldl spoke of the neces- sity of continuing the supply of all classes of necessary and seasonable comforts, and made an appeal along this line.. The comforts were forwarded each mouth to the soldiers in bales. Even bale'i contained socks for every man, and a percentage of other articles. If a unit had just received private ship- ments their regular bale was held un- til their turn came again. In this way everything was divided as equal- ly as possible. Miss Arnohli said that under this organization only tw bales had been lost since last March. Miss Arnohli went on to speak of the hospitals established by the Can- adians, and the heroic work helng done by the nurses in the field. The most touching part of her ad- dress was her tales of the homesick- ness of the.Canadian hoys, and of their great glory at the, battle of Tpres. The audience could hardly contain itself when she. told of the Gen'nah colonel who had been cap- tured, and who bore testimony to the fact that 8400 Canadians had held In check a whole division of Ger- mans. He said the Germans did not believe that was humanly possible, and did not know that so few Can- adian's were opposing them. She told the story of the soldier of the second 'contingent who met Eng- lish" officSre in a London restaurant, who .welcomed him, and said, "You will have to-go far and fight hard to attain :the noble, record made by the first Canadian contingent." She told also of .the officer -who was asked why he had saluted a wounded so'l- dler who was passing on a stretcher. "Ho wore the Canadian said the officer. 'Miss Arhbldi told of the immense cheer the bales of comforts, brought the hoys In the field. The cheer it gave them was half the battle she said, hence the necessity of keeping Wife of the New York police lieu- tenant executed. on' 'Friday morning for the murder'of Her'manjjrjpenthal.

She then went on to sneak of how she had beui sent from Toronto year to Valcartier to itraighten out the tangle ot ship where they were never free of mud, which as one soldier put up the good work. .The meeting closed with the "was in sour clothes, in your boots; m your food, and even in your, soul."
