Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 21, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LKTIIBHIIXili DAILY I1KHALD (From The London Tillies.) Whenever wo me tempted, by o'rtlie worst-in ourselves, n all_lhe sliuisliter 'and I) auk ol _, this war should 'not now ho ended with a compromise peace the Gor- to Wllll 11' cullll" v.'.io'- mans themselves tho ant They, at least, are always Irue themselves. Uy their frjilts we may know Ihcm, 'by their actions, not v their words. There are Germans who speak of the war as it they weie kindly neutrals who wished well o all the world. They give us onviolis reasons why we should make pence, forget what we thus: but be enforced by enforcing it, and the statutes were the result ol their action. So now we are fighting for the real international law that is to be. and Germany Is riglitinr against it. She has defied all ,tln old feeble international laws because she said, there was nov hind them; we have to there is a. power behind them, and we ran also nrovc that by our victory. If men had waited until they WIT all without sin before doing justic no Justice would ever have been and si power be prove tha 10 right HI our own way ot lite. How u that to be Improved?

It. docs not matter what Individual Hermans may say German people have sur- rendered their will to the Gorman aoverni.jent.-and they have done so because they believe that they will achieve victory by tills surrender. Their irovtrninent will seem good to them if MARKED Winnipeg, Dec. 2I.-Winnipcg wheat closed up for lie.......her anil 4Vic advance for May. Oals were ad- vance for December and Hie. better for May.

That, too, is .what the 'pacifists tell us, and neu- trals whose one, very natural, desire is to end tlie war. They all have an ot superior wisdom; they al, seem to be above the battle. They think, and, we .who are in the battle, can- Hut it always happens that these words-of theirs are refuted by some, new action ot the Germans-; for there Is a German logic, the logic not ot words, but of the whole German stale of mind, which expresses itselt in- exorably and as if by a process ot 'nature in the acts of the German government. No doubt that iovern- nient now desires peace: but the bv which it seeks nea'e are not free from sin, and we con- it. We may also have an in- terest in destroying the power of criminal hut also rivalry would not have led u into war with her; and dilferences between her and us. She made war out of rivalry and with the' desire to put an cud to it-by force. The rivalry, no doubt, was an evil; but, so long as there are separ- ate nations and not a united Europe, it is a necessary evil, like the compe- tition of two tradesmen. may do anything to' win victory or escape defeat. The Uclsiaim have to it "ho rights whatever; they ifTc mere- ly tin obstacle, or a means, to vie- lory- they are to be slaughtered so long as I hey resist ami enslaved when they can resist no more. Does any- one believe that a mil inn which acts Ihus in war would act differently in jieace of its own making? Then i would not slaughter subject-peoples If it could use them: even a slave- owner does not slaughter his slaves unless he is mad. .But would use them for its own purposes and with- out a thought of their right to live their own lives. It .they admired Ger- man Kultur they might share it. no doubt, bni. liiey would not be allowed to call their souls their own. Yes! the Germans arc logical, but all their logic is based on the postu- late Hint they are the people and that Kultur can only live with them. Now we see Hie truth of the old saying thai there is no sin like the sin pride. It is the sin of the devil, because to December and May and advance for July. Heavy trade, made by the todav.
