In the place the lontr absence from Ottawa of Sir Robert and -bt his ablest Ministers acted nlmo-^t as a paralytic stroke upon what had been, up to the lime oC their dcpar-lure. a very vlBorous administration. l''or more than two months there bus not been, on an average, more than tine-thlrd of the Cabinet at work In tJttawa In any single week, and there liavi! been times during the same porloil when there were not enough Ministers on hand to make a Privy Council quorum.

Hon. C. ,1. TDoherty stepping into the breach. Sir QeorfrCa absence deprived the Cabinet of a leader of. experi-t-nce, and, Incidentally, it left the War Trade Board minus a Government representative and a chairman; this, too, at a time when there was known 10 bo friction between the board and the Cabinet in regard to restriclions on Imports, and when a great deal of aiscontent existed among the business Interests of the country with some features of the board's activities, llton. C. J. Doherly, who succeeded Sir 'George .as acting Premier, is universally recognized as a gentleman of probity and ,a jurist of distinction, but nobody who knows him pretends that ho is sultett tor leadership of a I'V'var Government; and the inevitable results of a Cabinet undermanned and � without strong leadership isoon made Ihomselves manifest.

KISSING DUCHESSES And Otherwise Forgetting That He Used to Be a Member of Labor Union. (Jcncral March REAL HEAD OF AMERICAN ARMY General March, Chief of Staff, Is Son of a College Professor. N By WlLLiAM K. UliOOKi-3. OBODi' seemed greatly shocked when the cable brought tho word that King George had conferred the Knight Grand Cross of the Order of St. Michael and St- George on the American Chief of Staff. He has received from America the title "General," but in Kaston, up in the bills of Pennsylvania, wliero he was born, ho has been, and alwa.vs will be, just "Bob" March. Tho biggest thing in Kaston has always l)cen Lafayette College. It stands, like the baron's castle used to stand, high on the hilltop, guarding the town. At least It has guarded that town .from being commonplace, as many small towns are. When I wrs In Princeton, I Bomotlmes gained the impression that Lafayette had only ono professor. It there, were others, they were never mentioned- Kvery Lafayette man 1 know talked about "Dad" March. There was that peculiar reverence for him that Williams men of an older generation had tor Mark Hopkins-a reverence so rare In tho average college boy that it always betokens unusual powers on the part of him v/ho is revered. That "Dad" March iiad such powers and that they were recognized by others than Ills pupils is evidenced'by the fact that he held degres from more than a dozen of the leading nnivcrsi-ties of tho -world, including Oxford, Cambridge, Dublin, Edinburgh. Glasgow, Yale, Harvard, Princeton and Columbia. "Rob" March will have to gather in many decorations before he. -will surpass his father, the great philologist, llterateur artd linguist. Professor Alden March. Wo tR-e finding it more and more interesting in America to trace a man's origin in ftstlraating his life. General March had as good grandfathers as any man could hope for. They were of sturdy Scotch Presbyterian stock, and on his mother's side they had in their veins the blood of Washington. His mother was Mildred Stone Conway, and his great-grandfather through her was Peter Dtinlel, whoso mother was Washington's halt sister, A man with blood like that in him I'has a good start, But R good start is not .all in a race. Me had besides this tho careful training of the busy man who was hlH father, yet who was not so busy that ho could not be a companion io his sons. Ho tauglit them tho great things that books hold, and the greater messages that God has or Hon. Arthur JIolBhen will be promoted to tho Dcp'nrliiiont of Justice, but such a shuffle Is hardly likely. So far as a fail session of I'arlla-,mont Is concerned. It Is difficult to see how it can be avoided. As a matter of fact an early mocting of tho House Avouid seem to be absolutely noccssAry if the e.ountry. Is going to continue sending rQlnforco-ments to tho front, and for this reason: That the one hundred thousand men which IJarllamenl authorized the Government to raise under the Military Service Act will havo been secured earlj- in Septcm-hor, at tho latest; no that It the Houso does not meet in the early autumn to authorize ftnoiher cnroli-mont tlio country's military effort, at least so flvr^as4ral3lng of troops Is concerned, will bo crippled for two or three months. Of course. It la qiillo possible that tho Cabinet may bold that under tho War Measures Act it ha'i power to exceed the ono hundred thousand limit which Parllnmont aet^ but this is hardly likely. The most natural and Ultely development is that a week or two more will sco the Prime .Rflnlstcr back In Ottawa, busily engaged . in reorganizing his Cabinet, summoning Parliament and taking otlier stops to restore In tlio Admlnlatrfttloh the vigor and prestlgo whicint lias undoubtedly lost durinit the past two months, ' Sovir CniiiKlian nv.wsimiivm h upon a firm foundation.

Its object Is the destruction of the e.vlfitlng .social .system. It will certainly have that effect. Mr. .Macdonald says, if tho mas.ies in pvpry country follow his lead. Menn-wliilo he prays for tlio downfall of till! HohenzoIIerns becauso so much el.�e will collapse in ths er.'isli. A Graceful Speaker MR. MACDONALD is far more eager to end tho social system than to end tho war. He puts these Ideas In the clear, graceful ICnglish for which lie has been famed over .-�inci' ho entered Parliament twelve years ago. He la without tlie burr of "Steve" Walsh, a lalior mcmljcr of I'arllamont who ought to be bettor known in this eountry. rtam.saj' Macdonald is not all bluster and Incoherence like Will 'I'horiie, nor does he talk fluent Cockney in the manner of Will Crook.s. Ife has not the pathos of I'hiUi) Suowden. Despite his name, lliei-e is no trac^e in ^tacdonald's lalk of tiip Scotch Hit on the Hps o?. the liito Keir HardiP. nanisny Macdonald l.s the labor leader who can address the Commons witli the clo-ganco of Mr. Balfour's own phrase iii:ikliig, with the lucidity of .A.'^finllh. the fervor of Lloyd George. , �.-XUhough Ramsay Alacdouald was born and reared in poverty In a small iiuinlet not/far from the Sootcii border, his niolhsr -ivas wel! born and it is hinted in tlie London sketches of !iim that his ancestors associated oil etiual terms witii Macduff and .Maclietli and strove vainly to prevent the ijuurdor o� Duncan. When ho was still finite a young child Ramsay Macdonald resolved to become a barrister; but he found the path of worldly success closed to him in all directions. For want of what tho iOnglish call "intere.'it," we note in the I/ondon News, young Macdonald had lo work in factories or help in .stables or water liorses or run errands in city streets. He discovered early in life that tho i-anks of unskilled labor were recruited from people like himself. It was useless to display talents that could not be cultivated or aptitudes thnt could not bo exploited by an employer. Never Forgiven Society K grow lo manhood with a firm conviction that society was unjust to tho. worker, ana ho lias never forgiven it. Mr. Macdonald Is but a poor Illustration of his own theory, for lie has risen to renown by fostering the ,'tggrcssi\-e l.'ibor movement witli wliich his name is associated. ilo has a genius for organization and tlie cxlatenoc of the Independent Labor party is one evideuco of that fact to the London Mull. He plunged into .soelulism and made its literature .self-suDportlng, editing .Sb-ciallst classics, writing Socialist propaganda, making Socialist speeches In the hard, glltlorlng fluent style for which he is so much admired as an "intellectual." That is the right word for Macdonald. tho London Clarion thinks. He l� hiirhly f-cientlflc in his attitude to life, even his well-known view that the formation of character is tho true aim of tbu individual, being a Darwinian inference. Ho married tho dntigiiisr of a distinguished man of., science and very early in hla career enjoyed whatever advantages n>ny be presumed lo result from admission to tlio "beat" society. His Induuito contact with tho proletarian leaders of tho Continent of Europe has given him a cosmopolitan touch.

Ik clever, amazingly so. His face does not show it- He has lieen caricatured to rein-eseiit a rabbit. There is no denying tliat his features look weak. Ilu has often lieeii iihotographed grinning in a silly way; but the grin can be sinister, too. For Fricdrich Wilholm in one of the most dangerous and slnirler men in the -world! In America the Sunday editions have regaled us with stories of Ills exploits!-"affairs." supper parties, rash automobile driving and steeple-chasing. We all know by now how he led his f.ivorlto regiment of Hiia-.sars on horseback up tho terraces of the old caatlc of Sans Souci and then held gay doings with t-hcm there. We know how his apparent thoughtles.",-ness has brought down severe criticism from tho Imperial parent. We have heard all manner of stories involving him with light young ladles. What -we have not beard is that the man himself is a contradlolion to all his harumscarum actions of the past. That tiie emptiness of his face Is a mask that nature has given him apparently to conceal tho shrewd, calculating brain bohlnd. Ho looks a bit like ,'1 spoiled scion of a wealthy family - n German edition of Harry Thaw. Instead, he is a deep, relentless thinker, somewhat cruel, and a ptist master at playing the mob. Army Loves Him THIO soldiers in his army love Frledrlch Wilhelm. He has made it his business to meet as many of thein as iiossible. They love him. That is good for tho morale. Tho entire fighting malo population oC Germany to-day-except some Socialists-believe that the Crown Prince suffers mental agony every time ho reads a new Hat of Germans killed or wounded. Did be not say so In an Interview which bo gave to an Ameri 0!^ii correspondent?""" Keeping that in mind, go back into the Crown Prince's boyhood. Ho had two pet dogs, lie wanted these dogs to sit' on Ihelr haunches and hold their forelegs out straight. It would bo a pretty sight when he took hla dogs out riding in a little basket-cart. He couldn't train one of the dogs lo stick out his forelegs like ramrods. So, becoming greatly exasperated, Fricdrich Wllhelm .snatched the little animal by the scruff of tho neck grid burled its nose in the dirt. It choked to death. To ni.ako sure that the other dog would hold out its logs properly, Frledrlch Wilhelm broke botli of them. It could never bend them. They were Indeed as straight as ratnrod.s. His Imperial Highness was pleased. Plays the Mob UK truth about tho matter Is that tho t'rown Prince is a genius for jiiaylng the mob. tie doesn't care any more for the i-nob than does tho Kaiser- The mob causes hla royal blood to revolt. The Kulser tries to jiiny tho mob, but it is oxfiulslto torture for him to preteiid he has deep interest In people who are aulte ignorant and unnoblo. After acting Ills part, tho Kaiser, exaspevatcd with bimaolt, will turn around to a royal old. and lot go an oath. Not Iho Crown Prince. He never shows his hand, -Kvery time ho can be maues tho mob believe they are'the. best little people In tho -world. What a ntago director!

HllNCESS BOLGOROUKOFF ' who has come from Russia, after passing four years there, first with hospitals at the front and later in- Moscow and Fetrogrnd during the Revolution, gives a lurid account of conditions there. 'Russia is, I fear, destroyed tor many years, perhaps many generations. Nobody who has not seen conditions there can Imagine the ruin which tho party under Kerensky has wrought. The masses are so thoroughly demoralized that last autumn I saw acres upon acres of grain left to rot in the fields, while broad rations in Petrograd and Mosco-w wero reduced to fiO grams per day. 'It is enough for a woman to wear a bat for her to be attacked by the mob. F'ormer society women stand in bread lines for hours, amid the mob, wltii shawls on their heads, not darln.g lo look different from the crowd, '^]y nieces, who were ladies in waiting at the court and are still living in Tsarslioc Selo, have narrowly escaped death because the crowds .said they did not look like 'comrade.s' thoiiph they hail no I'lat.s." The Prince.s.s suld that most of the officers of the old army either been Jellied by the soldiers or had killed themselves rather than submit to having their epaulettes torn oft their tmlforms. l know one general of the finest cavalry regiment in Russia -who was the regiment's cook when 1 left Petrograd," she said. "When the Bolshevik revolt began there -was a mutiny in tho regiment and all officers -were chosen by a .small Soviet (council). The consequence -was that they made the cook general and tho genetal cook. Such things happened everywhere;' everything: was turned upside,down. T' ed publicity man. It -was a year ago last Christmas that h� made a grandstand play that caught not only tho people, but the Army. From Field Headqiiartera he sent this telegram: "For Christmas presents send my soldiers rum. They need It more than Christmas trinKetfr." There nre many -who bellevo that on cold, damp nights in the trenches a nip of rum to warm the body Is a. very desirable thing. But leaving out the pro and con of the question from tho alcoholic point of view, any ono famlliitv with the German military organization Uno-w that a requisition on the supply department would have brought tho Crown Prince all tho rum needed through the regular Army channels. Instead, ho worked the grand-stand play, and the "human" telegram wn.s' reproduced on flaring posters and displayed in shop window.s. A Hard Worker THK heir to the German throne is sinister. Ho works hard.' He takes his military duties very serlous-l.v. Jle tins worked like a Trojan to perfect himself In military Bclencc. He Is tt keen student of sociology and psyohoiogy. Because of his skill as an actor, because of his ruthless ideas on dlvluc right, because of his reok-loHsnoBH, of hlH Inclc of religious fear - which fear his father has - the Crown Prince Is a mucit more dangerous man than the Kaiser. When tlio lOilser Is acting a part he shows It. Imperial phlegm'is bound to' show. The Crown Prince cleverly conceals U. The Army knows him for a daredevil- They know thnt ho Is a reckless horaiinmn, that he rode and won ti famous steeplechase at-the risk oC breaking hla neck; thnt-he sailed'a Zeppelin, muoh to hla father's dismay; that ho made an aeroplane trip with 0HC of tho Wrights, when the aeroplane was not a safe vehicle; that he made a hunting trip through India, risking his life with wild boasts- They" know that during this wai' he has often e.Nposed himself to fire against tho wishes of tho old geneyuls nsElgnod to watch lilm.
