Should the Bulgarians attempt to cross the bor- der in pursuit of me Allies the old enmity will be aroused and the Greeks oppose their entry by force of arms. Allied armies are now safely ensconsed in strongly fortified posi- tions in Greece, and for tho present are safe from any concerted attacks. Italy is developing her new campaign in Albania on an extensive scale. A call has been issued in England already for four classes of the re- cruits recently raised under Lord Derby's volunteer scheme. Over two millions have been raised by his Plan. 'Austria's reply to the U. S. protest on -the Ancona sinking has been re- ceived at Washington and is not at all satisfactory as no intention to dis- avow the act is shown. FIVE THOUSAND AMERICANS IN RANKS James 51. Beck, formerly, attornev. general of tie United States, in an address at Montreal last week, made that all Americans were not neutral. For instance, he pointed out that four thousand citizens of Be United States had joined the Canad- ian, .overseas, regiments, and another thousand-were-serving under the tri- color of France. These five thousand Americans evidently believe -in oem- gerent neutrality. "They" said Mr. Beck, "in what I thoroughly believe to he the holiest war in IBS history of the world." Tho American; battalion, now being lalsed at Toronto, wfil be composed entirely of former American citizens. The President of tho Council State, ELjnor IE the best-hated .jan in Germany, because he could see through tile tactics of its special ambassador, Prince vou Billow, and checkmate! nil his political manoeu- vers.'sb that heMiad 'o riturn, a: com- plete failure, to Germany with his Italian wife. Tho most conspicuous man in Italy at present is 11. Sulvatore Barzilui, whom King Victor Emmanuel appoint- ed as a cabinet minister. General OUiolengbi, late minister of war, and newly made senator, another Jew, is the idol of the army. .Germany has not yet removed dis- abilities from her Jews, but the war has caiMd the suppression of leading anti-Semitic papers, and some of the war-leaders have pro fessed a change of heart in favor oi the Jews on account of their loyalty. German Jews have contributed their full share toward that remark- able display of efficiency, both mili- tary ami economic, which has as- tounded the world. In every branch of the social and political life the Jew has left his mark. Karl laid down the scientific foundations of socialism, and Ferdinand Lassalle founded the German Social-Demo- cratic party, and its leaders. UD to the present head, Hugo Hasse, were all Jews. The head of the Revision- ist is Edward Bernstein, who, on account of his antiwar views, is an exile in Switzerland. What an irony that the only man who dared to defy the Kaiser in the Reichstag, and vote openly against the German war loan, and was not beheaded, was Herr Liebknecht, a Jew! One secret of the efficiency of the German armies lies in their wonder- ful organization of transportation. To a Arthur Kais- er has entrusted the general manage- jment of all the German railways, and he is personally in charge of the transportation of all the German troops. This Jew who is not wanted is most desirable now. Iron crosses have been lavished galore on tho Ger- man-Jewish soldiers. Austria has drawn into the war from her Jewish population of and the race has furnished one Field Marshal, G Generals, 17 Colonels, 15 Lieutenant-colonels, 4S Majors, and 211 other officers. Russia, with a Jewish population of employed Jewish soldiers and fonnS them valorous and worthy in large numbers of the high- est order for bravery. RICKED UP IN SSINGI FOR THE BUSY MAN THE JEWS' PART VIN THE WAR Tie war has aided in emphasizing the place of the Jew in the world. It isTeVtlmated1 that Sve hundred and fifty thousand Hebrews are engaged in the world conflict, and the pity of It that Jew is fighting Jew, for all the countries at war have many Jews in their ranks. A writer in tie Missionary Review for December de- clares that the Jew is paying a very nigh price to the best traditions of -the race. He is "strenuously leading in all the episodes of the war: in its politics, in its economy, in its finan- ces, in its organization, in its supples, in its armies, and in its horrors." He estimates that 46 per cent, of the population, or are affected by the'war. "The total num- ber of Jews in the world is not over of whom some 68 per cent, are affected by this The Jewish population of the Brl- 1hih; Isles is about and over are in the ranks. Hundreds have secured medals, and three have secured the most coveted order, tha Victoria Cross. Five He- brews are holding positions an the British cabinet; one, Lord Reading, has. become Lord Chief Justice; five arBj in the House of Lords, sis are Councillors, sixteen are Baron- ets, fourteen are Knights, and eigh- teen are members of parliament. The total Jewish population of Prance ie little over Be- fsre.the war, in the regular army there were 8 Hebrew generals, 14 colonels, 21 lieutenants, 68 majors, and-107 captains: but now over Jews are in the ranks, and are doing gallant, wprk on land, sea, and in the air.- General Heymans is In charge one army corps. Five Jews are holding important positions in the cabinet. The Rothschilds, feeling that their country has been outraged, have returned to the Austrian Em- peror the title of nobility which his ancestor, a century ago, had bestow- ed upon. them. Belgium shelter? Jews. The first man taken as a hostage when the Germans entered Antwerp was a Rothschild. In Italy, where the Jews were not emancipated until 1870, the total Jewish population is and they have provided Italy lately with a Prime Minister, Signer Luigi previously seneS as minister of finance on ocea- llons. Sixteen members of parlla. Kent and fourteen senators are Jews.
