Both Germany and Austria claim to he ready for war with the United Stales.

The war and navy departments are not asleep, however, and congress is clearing decks for possible needed war legislation. Germany is already taking her toll of vessels, but thus far United States ships have not been sunk without warning. It is a question of time only, however, until the final break comes.

No truer word was ever said. Germany stands before the whole world today convicted of outlawry in a degree ten thousand times ten thousand worse than Jesse James ever attempted as an individual. Germany, with her three partners, is the social outcast of the world. She is an outlaw in the world of nations because she refuses to abide by those international laws which are made for tne government of affairs between nations. And Germany today Is an outlaw cornered. crossed the border. According to a telegram received by Mrs. A. T.

The Ottawa Citizen puts a spike In their guns, however, when It' says: The last general elections resulted In the return of 27 Conservatives from Quebec, and 37 Liberals. But it has become the habit of politicians of a certain stripe to blame Sir Wilfrid Laurier for the alleged failure of recruiting in the sister province. Yet it will be admitted that if this principle Is to be followed it should be applied more closely to actual conditions. By all means ascertain the number of recruits in Quebec constituencies represented by the followers of Sir Wilfrid and compare them to the number In those represented by the followers of the present premier. That would seem tq be the only fair test, if such tactics are to be followed at all.
