Canada is interested. Geriiiaay wanted world dominion. She .wanted to start by crushing France, 'Britain and Italy, end then Germany wo.uld have its band- In the old world. "Do not forget that the powers in that Germany and the United States, two continents face to face. Perhaps Germany, bruised by the wur, woif.d not be ready to start on the United States at once, but it would start at once with military preparations for the next war, nnd the United States would have to start at ouce tp become a military nation.

To His Own People "1 appeal to the good sense of my all of "is danger. During my long career I have nevrr made an anneal-lo one section of the country, never addressed my- self to my own but-always lo the universal conscience of the people of the Whole country. 'Now it is to you that I address my self and for; reason? It is be- cause are say tUat the Freneh-Qanadlans afraid to fight for Great Britain and France.

For a noble. cause we must do more than our '.duty. 'Some Examples "I have heard it said that it is crime for bur Canadians to offer our arms in battle in Europe.
