Buchanan John Managing Director Butineaa Manager ROUND THE CIRCL-E 'OF THE WAR For the first time since tie war be- gan a British transport has been sunk. As yet no details are available of yesterday's disaster, in which the Hoyal Edward, carrying troops to the Dardanelles, was torpedoed and 1000 are anxiously awaiting report of the circumstances under which the trag- edy occurred, and tie names of those who have found a watery grave. Fighting on the Russian front is stiircontinuiug in much the same order as has prevailed for the past two weeks. The Germans have as yet been unable to bring the situation to a crisis, and the Russians are daily approaching positions where they mill strengthened and enabled to offer a much more determined resistance to the invaders. Balkan situation is clearing Eomewhat and an arrangement be- tween the little states that will be satisfactory from the Allies' stand- point is still looked for. German submarines attacked the Enelish coast on the Irish Sea on Monday, but did very little damage. The United States has accepted Germany's proposals for arbitration on the loss of the W. P. Frye, but is anxious to' learn of Germany's inten- tions regarding' future naval activi- ties. The statement has been made that the next contingent of Canadians to go abroad will go to the Dardanelles. SIR WU.FRID'8 ROUSING'APPEAL Sir Wilfrid Laurier'B recruiting speeches in Quebec have aroused the French-Canadians and the Montreal Gaiette, a .-Conservative paper, attri- butes the increased number of enlist- ments'to the campaign conducted the Liberal leader. Sir Wilfrid's speech at She-brooke prepared, he said, Britain ,wm not prepared nt all. "There are mcu who blame the British people for uot being preircd, but 1 am not one of he saio> the Ucine of pcaco, would not prepare for war, because Britons never fight until they have to flght, but when they do light, they fight indeed. He said the English had been namod a nation of shopkeepers, not a nation ot soldiers, and It mis to their credit. He pointed out, however how by not having the incubus of n huge military cnmp Britain had ac- cumulated wealth, snd 'he said that wealth was the nerve of war. "It is not to be pretended that the British people and British institutions are perfect, fout i have no hesitation in saying that there is no portion ot God's earth in which there is more freedom to be found than in British countries.'1 Sir Wilfrid paid a high tribute to General Botha, and said he wanted to tell the French-Canadians what Gen- eral Botha was doing in South Africa. "General Botha ho declared, "that when a man has freedom he has everything, a man can contend for. His fellow-countrymen are free, and therefore h'e asks them to fight with him for the benent of the Institutions under the British flag. These are the added Sir Wilfrid, "that are impelling me to take the part that 1 am taking in this war.-" In conclusion. Sir Wilfrid declared: This is the message that I faring you. The peril is at present great. Wo must not remain under 3 false im- pression of security. If we want to win ws must be worthy of freedom, and to he worthy of freedom we haye got .to flght for it" BRAND COFFEE Two Favorites In 1 and 2 pound cans. pulverized also Fine Ground for Percolators.

"If I were a young man, and I had the health that I have now, and which I did not have when I was young, I would not hesitate to take Hie musket and to fight for freedom as ao'Many my are doing. 1 cannot shoulder a rifle now, ibul there IB. one will do, and that is give my voice, such as it is, for Cause' in which we' all have such a jupreme fnterest."
