The open defiance of th Allies hy King Constantine in his re lusal to surrender arms which th allies fear may be treacherously .user against them, has led .the allies to a display of force. Troops from allie refraining from indecent and insulting attacks .on public men. To free dis cussion there is no objection. But i should be conducted with decency and at least an approach to fairaess. And we all know that this statemenl from Jlie Winnipeg Free Press is per fectly correct: We are told now that such an elec be a calamity. The govern ment is so anxious to avoid such a con flict that it plans to ask parliament, its tho first business of the coming ses sion. to provide for an extension unti October, 191S, thus giving seven years of life to the present parliament. Is it possible that this is the govern ment that In September, 1914; in No vember, 1914, and in April, 1915, ant perhaps on one later occasion, con spired against the peace and harmonj of the Canadian people by making ar rangements for a khaki election? Par- liament was then only partly through its term, and the government had be- hind H a majority that ensured its control of affairs. The situation, on those occasions, was very different from is at this time when the proposal if? to extend the life of a par- iament that has already outlived the period for which it was elected. It was no.sense of generosity mtriotisni within the government taelf which saved Canada on all three )ccasions .from the disaster of a war- ime contest, the undesirability of whichJs now so clearly recognized by Mr. Kemp, the Toronto News and others. They were forced, in each in- stance, by outside influence into aban- doning their projects. On at least one of these occasions the Duke of Con- nangbt intervened decisively against .be conspirators. The idea behind these attempts to 'orce an. election was that it was an opportunity, heaven-sent, for the crush rig of, the Liberal party. The Conser- vative strategists planned to. brand 'be .Liberal leaders as traitors, fatuous y believing that the" electors._ would give .credence to absurd and thus enable them to wreak ven- geance upon 'their political foes. It is -the -simple .truth that for at east the flrst eighteen months of the war the Dominion government regard- ed the war" as primarily a golden op- prtnnity.for the gratification of its elfish desire's; Jobs for- supporters, ontracts for friends, social and pbliti- al prestige, opportunity for revenge Tbe object of postponing the s tion ia to prevent the dissipation of energy-; through party strife This t object will be defeated, even if there f be no election, IE the country is kept In a state of turmoil and bad temper! 5 through 5 floi of the are! their ''worst to provoke ntrife Their attacks upon; poll political far more than fighting the German men- ce, was what the war meant to them. For the" first sir months of the war "urged repeatedly and with''such vigor as it could command, mt there .should be a real political race'for the period of the war, with some basis for co-operation, not neces- sarily a coalition, by the' leaders of both parties. The first step toward such" an, agreement, the Free Press nsisted, was a pledge by Sir Robert Borden that there should be iso elec-" tlon for the period of the be -followed by a working arrange- ment-by which the' Liberal -leaders would lbe called into conference with the government from time to time for the shaping of war policies. JVe recall, without difficulty the scorn and amusement with which this and similar suggestions by other news- papers were received by those to whom they were addressed. They could see nothing in them but signs of panic in the Liberal ranks; and were thereby confirmed in their desire for a knaki" election. The government went its way, play- ing politics with everything having to dp with the war, tightening its political fences, replenishing its war chest, and preparing Its plans for-a political cam paign The Liberals, having no in allowing themselves to be butchered to make a Borden holiday adopted, In an offensive- defensive, policy, the effectiveness of which is revealed by the complete con- version''of 'the Conservatives" to' the view that an election during war time would be a catastrophe Thp result of this political warfare that lias been going on with Inereas ini Bitterness Is present 'sUfe of the com pier problems connected with am out, of the war.
