Whether that end be attained or not Is immaterlr.l to the Allies. They ire prepared to see. the thing through to the bitter end. They are not bluff ing.

So powerful an influence In the successful conduct of: the war Is the morale, determination or wfll-to-vic- jory of both soldier and civilian that bach of'the combatant alliances has devoted; and -wlircontlnue to devote much energy, to the task of convinc- ing its opponents that they cannq win. From the very beginning of thi struggle there has been a large ele- ment of what Is commonly kriowa a "bluff" In the political attl'fudes o Teutonic and Kntenfe. Alliance But statement la properly called "blnft" only when it lacks that back ing in fact which makes it impos- sible Into action. To bluff in this maaner Is. doubtless tbe real art of playing the game ot poli- tical and diplomatic poker; but there h always the danger that tbe bluff may be called and the game lost .But when one of the players has the ability to translate the factors upon which the apparent btulf Is based .In- 'to stern realities, the game becomes one sided element of this pervades the Allied acllorij that It3 enemies would be as .much', exhausted as itself if the results attained -were Indecisive Similarly" the enlarged military programme of the Tjnited States ad ministration is probably calculated to produce a powerful effect upon political opinion in Central Europe and thus to.aid the break-up of the Teutonic Alliance Jt is not in any a it is a serious pro- position -which will be translated into fact without undue delay But tha which attends it? adiance- menL, and the advertisement of ita probable effect upon the fnture course of the war, serve a political purpose Independent of the main end which it contemplates.

Since we have not such men, we should, get together ourselves, tor Canada Is dlvidci In- every war, with growing differences. These will be- come greater after the war if some ef- fort is not made now to overcome them. Thus Canada' Is at present full'of. peril. _This Is our. opportunity aside selfishness, and profit- eering and to think only of the com- mon, good. If' Canadians cannot pro- ducte a leader, then they should get together without one.'
