So lone as the paxion for forced state- ments does not overcome tho passion for absolute truth, all is well. There is the danger, however. Macaulay was a historian who wrote with a vivid, ular style, but uo one would deny ho often sacrificed trut'.i for effect. The recent journalists mentioned above have fallen into the same trap. Their comments are brilliant and forceful, but the truth of many of their assertions is questionable. Not that they deliberately lead astray. Rather they are superficial, and ex- press forcibly their immediate con- victions. Pure truth muy indeed come us a lightning stroke ot revelation: these are rather the electric sparks of In order that truth may flash forth in tho mind. there must be a previous application. and search.

Labor conditions must occupy a large space in all our thoughts of England at present. To see the large number of men out of work, and to hear of all kinds of in- dustrial strife makes one wonder what next. No sooner is one strike settled than another is on the way. IE the men get what they want they seem to think that then they should have more and more. While cost of living is going down, wages ara going up. Before any great change can take place it appears aa if the cost of liv- ing and wages also must be greatly curtailed. In the shipbuilding centres, where the writer is stopping at present, one hears on every hand of orders for new ships being cancelled and soon a good many of tbe yards will have to be clos- ed down, thus throwing a good many more men out of work. Tbe reason of these cancelled orders Is only attrib- utable to one condition, and that is the reduction in freight charges.
