In'Ottavra. ; President Wilson's new plan for natlpnal defence, borne directly of tjie war, is not likely to be accepted by congress, it Involves the raising oi^'a-big citizen army. Congress fa-voris the increase of the regular army. ..Germany has modified her latest note to United States on the Lusi-tanla affair, by explaining her policy as ,being that none but enemy ships i)e made the object of attack by sub-i^srlnc. report from London states that important changes are contemplated In the conduct of the war and that Lgrd Kitchener may leave the war oWce.

W. H. HIU.. A man, believed to be David Chirk-son of McKcesport, Pa., committed suicide at Niagara by leaping from the upper river bank to the rocks below at the falls tills morning. The body was horribly mangled. Tourists witnessed the leap. After sleeping contiiinoii.sly for over a week, Augustine Beauchamp, (i-year-old son of Mr, and .Mrs. August Beau-champ of Escanaba, Wis., died yesterday. The malady of which the lad suffered remains a mystery. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas 'Watson who reside on a farm near Jleatord, Out., celebrated the 70th anniversary of their wedding last week.

And the allies �will win, ibecauae Britain can supply tha silver bullet, according to the Spokesman Review, which all along has been ei close observer of the economic phases of the war. In its Sunday Issue the Spokesman sizes it up this way: "England and Germany, when tha war began, each had about $11,000,-000,000 of annual Income, Germany, however, having half as large a population again as England. Since then lEngland's Income, according to Sir Leo Money, has grown to 112,000,000,-000 yearly, whereas Germany's has fallen to *7,500,000,000. British exports of domestic productions last year aggregated 11,850,000,000; Get^ maoy's only �100,000,000. Yet there are those -who persuade themselves that Germany can win this war, though winning modern -wars depends more upon money than upon men and generalship." Canada helped Britain mould many silver bullets last year. She can do much to help win the war by repeating her 19iq record In 1916.
