It was because of Sir Wilfrid's per- sistent adherence to British ideals that Bourassa began his Nationalist parly, and knowing that the seeds of j discontent sown by Bourassa were I bearing fruit in Quebec, tho Conser- vative" party, which today boasts so greatly of its loyalty, joined forces much closer. There could be only lo Laul.ier. reasons for the cancellation of the a Conservative grain contracts, one being that pays a fluo tribute 10 Hon.

The Russians are successfully Mock- ing the German offensive towards Riga, and to the north-east of War- saw, which would indicate that the retreat of the main array from the Polish capital is amply protected. In the. south-west, however, the Teutons have made further progress. The Italians have defeated the Aus- trians in a stiff fight in the Alps, at an altitude of test.

The speaker gloried that he was a French Canad- ian of six generations descent, and gloried also in his British connection. He affirmed that the British flag had always protected his rights, his priv- ileges and his franchise. He solemn- ly declared his conviction that the victory of Britain and her allies in this war was the victory of all Can- adians, whether French or English- speaking. And he concluded by say- ing that it was a question of duty and of honor to enlist voluntarily in the great army, in which French and Bri- tish are fishtinir side by side, in a friendship that has been eternally cemented by the blood that both have shed in their common cause.

Hon. Mr. Caszrain, Sir Robert Borden's postmaster-general, rebukes the Calgary Herald by in- forming it that there is no anti-war feeling in Quebec. The Calgary paper then says it is inclined to agree with the postmaster general in the opinion that, viewed in the large. Quebec is "If is emphatically not a time for distinctions of race or creed or origin, as he very truly said. It is a time for national eSort, for a tremendous and sustained will to conquer.

When the Borden government "was formed, three of these Bourassa men taken into the government, Pelletier, 'Monk and Nantel. These men are hot there now but the Quebec representation in the cabinet includes men elected by the "Nation- alist influence of 1911, Coderre and Blondin, with Sevlgny as Deputy Speaker. Bourassa's vicious influ- ence in Quebec was used "by the Con- servatives in 1911 in order to weaken Sir Wilfrid Laurier in his native pro- vince by charging that 'he was too im- perialistic, that he was too British and that his navy policy would force Canadians to fight in Britain's wars. This alliance partly accounted for the Liberal party's defeat in 1911. Now this man Bourasea is arousing riots against recruiting in Quebec.

In short, ihis is a chance, for Major General Sam to implement his recent performance in regard to Vaicartier Camp "by con- sistent diligence along lines not as spectacular, but quite as helpful to the British Empire. It is suggested that the routinary persons who" carry on the Department oi Militia are in constant need of a nervous presence like Major Genera! Hughes, whb will keep them on the jump. It is further suggested that, as organized publicity is what the re- cruiting movement needs most, oplane on a pedestal of red marble, six feet high, lu front is seen a Ger- man soldier in a fighting attitude, and two sides of the pillar show Paris and Dover, where the' Taubes have operated.

Another matter the Militia Depart- ment should take in hand is public meetings. Recruiting speeches are a fine thirig if they arc not too long, and'it they are spoken by the right man In the right vein. Statesmen are a-good drawing card, but it may he! laid dovin as a gerteral rule that one khaki that has been at thoi front is worth a carload oi poli- ticians. It follows tliat recruiting meetings should make great play with returned heroes from the battle front. Their splendid example is worth a wilderness of brave words. The Kind of Meetings Moreover, the meetings must lie properly managed, so that the right kind of audience listens lo the speech- es and applauds the heroes. The right kind of audience is an audience of possible recruits, and consequently regular officials of the Department oi Militia he reinforced by a small but competent staff of active young men who know how publicity may be at- tained.
