But it is now time to sober up, and Tace facts in reasonable frame of mind. Our Empire has been correctly de- as that of the Seven 'Seas, and this means, a very great deal to us. It'places, us in a hapgy. and, in- vidious position, in comparison with those countries which are run over by hostile armies; Particularly does, this apply to OUT own "locality. "We shall be able to continue our peaceful toils. Our lands will be cultivated as usual, and our crops will, as 'before, reach their destinations. There cannot be very- much of a scare as to an abnormal rise In flour. Though.our crops this year are poor, in comparison to those of other years, it should not bo forgotten that there are still in store many thousands b'ushels of last year's produce.7 The United States also has a crop which Js described as marvellous and prodi- gal The following imports in hundred- weights of wheat into Great Britain from her full sources of supply, in 1912, will show her independent posi- tion, with the control she has of the seas: Canada India .400; Australia United States Russia Argentina Eliminating Russia the.United King- dom has no cause for panic as regards food supplies. Nor, from reports re- ceived, do her people show it in this and other respects. Business 'is pro- ceeding in its normal.way. The Bank of England rate has been lowered from 10 to 5 per cent. We ahould chare the.same confidence. rail- ways will travel just as before with, in the nature of events, larger ness. Our coal mines will -bo operat- ed as afore. Our hofj industry which has reached a surplus will revive from the eztrs demand. Our flour industry will receive an impetus. Since war has -been declared Cal- gary has had the news that her issue .of half a million dollars has been sold. .are In excellent position irtiet all demands. The signs are v hopeful. Let us noV above all forget that forcing, ourselves into a state of panic produces the very evils we an- ticipate, and which the circumstances do not'warrant. >v The Spokane Spokesman Review that Germany can make no an- swcr to'Premier Asqulth's, crushing -indictment or that country's conduct. rlt very effectively remarks: "Ger- many can make no effective answer :to thU crushing Indictment, A great The Montreal Herald Telegraph summarizes the cause of Britain's participation in the war in a few ver> effective sentence when it says: 'Belgium and Luxemburg, Switz- erland, Savoy, the Ionian Islands and he basin "of ..the Congo, have long been established as permanently neu- ral states By agreements dating sack to the early eighties, they, in eturh hava been guar- ,nteetl by the.
