Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - February 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1918 THE LETHBRIDfiK DAILY HERALD Lord Robert Cecil Gives His Ideas of League of Nations PAGE ELEVEN 4 London, Fob. 15.--Lord Robert Cecil, minister of blockade, who .announced in the Houho of Commons recently that he had prepared a plan for h league of nationH, discussed the whole problertf today. While declining to give a detailed outline of his plan, which, with others, is now engaging the consideration of the British government, he indicated a number of conclusions* to which his study of the problem had ied him. ^ In reply to a question, he declared that even the members of the present entente group, with a few additions would form an .adequate nuclues, although he hoped for a wider membership. He declared that Great Britain could ho counted on a firm supporter of any adequate scheme for a league of nations and the wider Its scope the better It would please him. Lord Cecil declared himself convinced that the economic weapon would prove a most useful arm for the enforcement of the league's decree. Asked regarding disarmament, he said that disarmament is difficult to envisage at present but he was certain it would follow as a natural sequence the successful formation of a league of nations. "Hqw did a strong Knglish king finally gain ascendancy and control over the warring barons?" Lord Cecil asked. "He instituted a central body which enforced decrees on the barons largely by economic means. I am t'onvtnejed that is the line up on which a league of nations may hope to proceed effectively. My experience in the present war has taught me the great power of an econommic weapon. How could a league of nations*use it? Well,-for example, if any nation went to war with another without submitting its dispute to international consideration it would forthwith be cut off from all commercial intercourse with every .member of "the league. That would he a tremendous weapon M "and one that tew, it any, nations-would care to defy, "Finally, I would say that although a league of nations, to bo perfect, should embrace nil nations ut the world, It. may hnvc to begin with n more restricted membership, so as to insure thai, only those nations which only fuvor it. shall ho partners." Questioned with regard to the some amendment, Lord Cecil declared it to be hia belief that disarmament would naturally fellow the development of a successful loague of nations, as the natioim began to feel that they were safe in relying on the leagues' power to protect them. He said he could not believe that agreements tor dlsarma-inent were practicable at the present time because it was impossible under present circumstances to palce confidence in the signatm*es or written words of certain nations. "Disarmament will come of its own time," Lord Kobejt declared. "A hundred years a^o no man. in England went out into the Htreet at night without arms. Today not one man in a thousand carries any weapons. The disftrmartlont of nations will come similarly as soon as they are able Lb regard themselves sale in the world's highway."

The question of whether or not there should be conscription of wealth, then, i.-r entirely u matter of expediency, and, 1 think it is a matter which concerns, mainly, mi: the. working classes, but the people who have money.

H��d Office �nd Works, Waaft Toronto* Ont. The reply made by the chancellor of the Exchequer recently to the thides Union congress parliamentary committee, which urged him immediately to conscript the wealth of the nation, is of considerable interest. Mr. Sidney Webb having presented the congress resolution, Mr. Bonar Iriuv pointed out, in reply, that the government had already acted ou the pounds, and that form of taxation-had fallen down-namely, that when money was needed the government had to go where they could get it. Direct and Indirect Taxes \ Until now he had never seen any proposal which seemed to him to jhe practicable for getting money during the war by conscripting wealth, and personally, up to that moment, he did not believe it possible. In the year before the war, the total amount collected in indirect taxation-to which all classes were liable-was 60 million pounds, and that form of taxation had now risen to 102 millions. The amount of direct taxation in 131S-14 ; was 83 millions, and it. had risen in the prea-ent budget to 466 millions. In other words, the indirect taxation in 1D13-14 represented -12 per cent, and the direct taxation 58 per cent. Now the indirect taxation was IS per cent, and tJTe direct taxatio^ 82 per cent. The great .cost of the war had beeu paid by those who had wealth. Proceeding, Mr. Bonar Law said: But you are, of course, thinking of �what the effect will be after the war. What sort of parties we are going to have T do not. Know; but as a matter of prophecy l would venture to say this: that the political conditions which prevail in thin country will be of such a .nature that the burden of this taxation is not likely to fall upon ! the wage-earners so long as there Is i woalth which can be made to pay it That is my own view, t think there is very little danger, from your own point of view, of the great bulk of it not continuing to he paid in the same way as the war itself is being paid for. But 1 feel that the total burden of taxation represented by the National Debt, however you adjust It, will mean a burden upon Industry. lCvejything comes down to that in th-a j long run where there is taxation. I That burden is, to a certain extent, one of the inevitable consequences of the war; and all we can do is to try to make It tell aa little as rjosslble on the life of the country. "A Matter of Expediency" Suppose you take this view-and 1 am inclined to take it myself-that we ought to aim at. making-this burden one which will rest practically on the wealth that ha� been created and is in existence at the lime the wnr comes to an end, not merely that it; should not fall on the wage-earning claswes or on tbo people with small means with which to meet it. but that it should, .as far as possible, be home by the we/iJth that exists at the time, so that it would not be there as a handicap on creation of n<\'" �*Klf.)i after VIVIDLY PUT (Ottawa; Free Press) Tohn Mansfield, the English poet and novelist, whose story of Gallipoli is one of the finest hooks the. war has produced, and who is now the of ficlal historian at the British headquarters in France, has n vivid way of putting things. The following is an example, touching the evil which modern science has made possible to men who are brutal in mind or heart: "I am serious about this matter of the safety of the world If we are *not awakened by the enormous conflict, in another twenty years the barbarian will he master, unless the finished intellect can find some means of checking him. Who knows but the day may arrive when the barbarian will have at his disposal some scientific secret, that can blast a nation to pieces by touching a button? Who knows but the time may come when man discovers how to tap atomic energy, or is able to direct consuming rays against his antagonist and destroy a nation wholesale and accurately, instead of piecemeal and clumisly, as wo are doing at present?" The Prussian has to be dealt with conclusively this time, so that his gospel of force shall be too discredited to revive its head. 1 I d Canadian Stock s an 210 EIGHTH AVENUE WEST, CALGARY.
