Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 13, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta WKDiW MRU THE LETHBPJDUE DAILY HERALD PAGE FIVE I tho has be iinitteo full and and tl) lx'c' a to'li% address delivered tliis after- to tbousaiKls of his Quebec con- reta.henls, Sir Wilfrid Laiirler m-goil Ciiiin Cnnadlans anil especially upon wit'onch-Canadians. their ruty in the Lonsis which has been reached in Hie lift-ar. He urged thoni to enlist, and ti'laboratod .upon a number of points his address to jjhow them that this f wns their duty. He declared against any idea ot conscription, however. "I am here to say that 1 favor re- Vruiting down system of voluntary enlistment." said Sir Wil- frid. "We have no conscription hero iind will have none. It is not to force that wsVunt to appeal, but to senti- ment, to your hearts and to your bet- tor "feelings." Tic St. Peter's Market hall, bl. Sauveur ward, in Kast was crowded to the doors, while many "iithered outside to await the Liberal leader's'appearance. He was given a rousing reception. "I have come with the intention ot jjiving-yon all my thought, to tell you tile truth as 1 understand it. and to present my conception of the duty that falls uiioil us as a nation under the present circumstances." Turning to Hie growth of the Uo- minion during the -10 years be has been in public life, Sir Wilfrid point- ed out that great cities have grown .up, and referred to Vancouver, on the Pacific coast. "Wo bavo to provide lor the defence of UlWic cities find onr he de- clared, "lor when England is at war Canada is at war. "Tho war has us brutal confirmation ho went on. "When tbe war broke out in I'.ll-f there was a panic on Hie Atlantic and Pacific coasts, from Halifax lo Van- couver. It was known thai there were German cruisers in the Pacific .and the moment war broke out these cities wore open to attack. You hoard talk of the Rainbow, and bow .British Columbia immediately bought sub- marines, which action was authorized by Ottawa immediately, so that its cities would be protected. This is theFofe Give it Publicity in the LETHBiUDGE HERALD The Herald Wants Cor- respondents at- W-innif red, Granum, Taber, Claresholm, Burdett, Vulcan, Grassy Lake, Carmangay, Monarch, Stirling, Coleman, Whitla to Chronicle all the principal events in these communities Communicate with The News Editor THE HERALD Lethbridge justification of the statement that when jiiiBliinU la at war Canada IB at war." Sir Wild-ill wont on: "If 1 recall those r.icts It Is not Hie lileasnrc oC Justifying our policy or for (lie puruosu of party politics. 1 ttiii'iiot here to talk party 'Politics, 'jut with u hliihcr thought. 'Sonic ncoiilc will say that we should only defend our territory. 'Why should our children fight for England? To fight for UnglanU? O, what an Tor whom is HiiBlaml waging war, today'! It is not ICnslaml which was invaded in August of 11114. It was not on K'ngland that Germany declar- ed war on August 2.' .but it was Eng- land that on August -I declared war on to save Uelgtan, to save France, against the Gorman em- lire. (Cheers.) To Save Civilization "Whore is Knjilnml de- manded Sir Wilfrid. "Our own chil- dren are being killed and. shedding their -blood not in Knglaml, but on the territory of France. Many have lost their lives. They go that France may live and that Franco may continue to keen in the world of civilization the rank she lias kept since the era of Christianity. That is why yc'.T2 Canadians are fishting. and Hint is wbv 1 am here to say that it is the duty of Canada to take part -in the war to save the Christian civilization that is menaced. Sir Wilfrid referred to the days oE 1870-1871 when Quebec citizens offer- ed their services to the French consul to help France. They bad been dis- appointed in Kngiand then. Today there was a. ministerial crisis in England, after an army of had been raised, because it was felt that still more vigor should be shown in the conduct of the war. "I have been always. an admirer 01 England, and of British institutions; Home pages in her history I would !ike to tear the pages which tell of the treatment of Ireland; ot the part played in the war of 1S70. Brit- ish institutions arc the most wise, and freer than any people and above those of all nations. There is no country, my which am give to that such a complete tes- tlmony as Canada, and French Canada." Going Back 500 Years mj._ nf normally would mea'iT going" "bask five de- clared Sir Wilfrid. He talked of the German outrages, their treatment of. women and other civilians, and deportations of civilians. I "l will repeat what 1 said in -Mon- treal not long ago, that if I were a young man I would take up arms and go to the defence the allies. 1 am hero to say that 1 favor recruit- in- down here, the system of volun- tary enlistment. We have no con- scription here, and will have none. It is not to force that we want to ap- peal, but to sentiment, to your hearts, and your better feelings. "It "is evident that we are at the of the history of the world t is tin! old fight between liberty illd -IfelsJibt. new, it-has alwavs" existed. We may and that in the future France will ecure what oho has long searched or, a .complete .liberty, such as we ,ave here. When that liberty wi, come'- in o.ld.-Europe: a new. era will] come for iis also, and in this era there vlll be buried in the trenches of .Vance air the old hatreds and justice vill come to all. "What -I am telling you is in my said' Sir Wilfrid in conclusion. '.My last' word "is not to do what is to dime' by '.obligation, but for ustice and' liberty." Unless some means can be found to combat the white pine blister rust there will not be a white pins tree left in Canada in a comparatively few years, according to Dr. Gussow, Dominion plant pathologist. the Paris, Dec. a reply is made to German note it will be only alter con- sultation with the allies of Prance, and such conversations would require considerable time. Inquiry In respon- sible quarters today elicited the opin- ion that Germany's suggestion is a manoeuvre designed first for efrVcl at home; second to impress the in belligerent countries, with a-chance of some reaction there. Germany's suggestion is rejected in authoritative quarters whore it is con- sidered to be a repetition in a more concrete form of peace originating in Berlin from time to time in the last 15 months. ALLIES WILL NOT ACT HASTILY London. Dec. indications arc that the various governments of the entente allies do not intend lo act hastily in making joint response to the peace proposals of the central powers. It was pointed out in well informed quarters today that while each one of the allied governments might indicate its general attitude, consultation among the allies under tbe treaty binding them to such ac- tion probably would require two or tlnee weeks, making it unlikely that the joint reply ot all the allies will be ready until about the first of the year. The disposition this morning was to withhold comment inasmuch as the a'ciual tironosals bad not been receiv- ed or so far as known transmitted to the British government or members of tlie entente. One the factors which, according to the opinion expressed here, mili- tates against the acceptance ol the proposals is that tho opening o[ ne- gotiations would necessarily be fol- lowed by an armistice. No specific suggestion of armistice is made in ui iiuui the proposal, so far as indicated by While meats and Atistro-German peace negotiations, and of 1S70 in the Franco-German ne- gotiations, establishes that an armis- tice and suspension ot" ai! military ac- tivities follows the opening nego- tiations. Montreal, Dec. the Canad- ian Club Luncheon today, at which Hon. Rupert Guinness was announced to speak on the navy, his excellency tho Duke of Devonshire, made an In- teresting address in reply to the toast of the King, proposed by Presi- dent A. B. Holt. His Excellency said in part: "We have had the I say pleasure, whether it is or of reading today the peace proposals that emanate from certain quarters. 1 think I can grasp pretty well the spirit in which you take those pro- posals. It may afford the historian of the future some opportunity for re- search as to what was in the mind of the authors of these proposals at this precise phsyological moment. But we ;vr? in the every day business of life do not think we need waste our time or attention on a min- ute investigation as to the origin or nature of those proposals. This has been forced upon us against our will. We ran many risks in attempts to maintain peace and we are not going to sheath the swore, until we have gained a peace which is of our making and of our choosing.
