Success and failure sweep the whole field of human endeavor, and one or the other sets its seal upon life's every enterprise, significant of early defeat or eternal .triumph. The supremacy of either is "determined largely by the power-or lack of it-to see beyond the visible. Life's failure is often attributable to its plan. A cut and fit method is never applicable to life, and her true intersections are never haphazard. Life's choicest flowers are those which root in the garden of mysticism and bloom on the side of the road. P.M.-The greatest gift to a nation is an ideal; to loose it is a nation's greatestk.calamity; to recover it, the patriot's greatest service. An ideal was God's great gift to the world. The world knew it not, and lost it; and now, threshing her wheat by the wine press to hide it from the Midianites issues a challenge for its recovery. This is the call of the world to her young manhood of today ' j Visitors Always Welcome. Bishop Geo. W. Geen, 1016 2nd -Ave.'  ' ' ... South. Phorje 1493.

Everybody Welcome When one calls on the Cardinal, one wanders through long, white halls in the archieplscopal palace, through cloisters formerly opened to wind and rain, now closed and glassed from the elements by a less heroic race. In the "saIonl> formerly used for a reception room a German shell has torn through the roor and burst, leaving jagged fragments In the mirrors, so that they are splintered like ice un-der the hammer and fling grotesque reflections and spars of light into the emptiness overhead. The dais, with its crimson hangings, droops in shreds. The hardwood floor is plowed and uprooted, and carved cherubim smile placidly from the debris. In still another Toom huddle portraits of archbishops of old; saints and politicians, some of them in Louis Qua-torze wigs: and the familiar faces of Plus IX., 'Leo XIII., and the present Pope, Benedict XV. The Cardinal receives in a tiny white-washed room, furnished with horsehair chairs, walnut-wood desk and table, and a small coal stove. On the walls are an image of the Virgin, framed in glass, and a pencil drawing of the Cardinal as a boy. Through the windows one looks into a dead garden where shells have plunged and burst. The Cardinal is like a Degas painting, if Degas had pictured cardinals instead of chorus-girls and ballet-dancers. He seems preternaturally tall-six feet five, I think. His face, thiti, scholarly; ascetic, with sparse grayish-whito hair above it, is bloodless,1 and his forehead so w^ite that one feels one looks on the naked bone. His eyes are deep-set, the eyes of a man who sees a great deal. There is, a pleasantly humorous expression about the corners of the firm mouth, but the expressioiTof his face in conversation shows a man who knows what he thinks, measures what he says, and feels in advance 'be exact effect of every remark that he makes i and of every look that he casts upon j one. His black Jiabit with the cardinal-red braid, the heavy gold chain about his neck and the heavy gold cross at his breast, the wide cardinal sash, and the black-skirted cassock- all serve to emphasize the old-ivory whiteness and tooled artistry of the fine face above them. There is something feminine in the Cardinal's face -a feminine deference and'sympathy and comprehension perhaps-but the effect which he makes on a caller Is the same that he -makes on the world at large, that of a finely poised, keenly-intelligent, yet very gentle Prince of the Church-and shepherd of a nation. V They-tell "in Belgium of an American tourist who called on the Cardinal. "You're a Catholic, ain't you, Mr. Cardinal?" he inquired. The Cardinal understands English, and gently answered, ""Yes." "Well, I'm a Presbyterian, myself, hilt--I ain't got no prejudices," said the visitor. � Unlike,, this American, the Cardinal has prejudices. Hc is strongly prejudiced in favor of Belgium. He is not afraid to be pro-Ally, and his written and spbHeii words have been a keen embarrassment to the occupying government*. In him conquered Belgium has fo�nd'ta voice. It ^has found also an example of patriotic -recalcitrance. In May, 1915, when Malines -was isolated by Governor-General von Bissing in an effort to force the railway repair^shop workmen to work for/ the Germans, and a cordon of -soldiers was thrown about the city tokee-pthe people from going brief argument, he and two of his priests were permitted to prooeed. The crowd, however, was balked. An excited argument began and one of the soldiers arrested a priest I am told that the priest retaliated by'beating the sentry with an umbrella and disarming him; the second sentry called for help, and, in a moment more the warlike,priest was under arrest and soldiers were charging into the crowd. Then an extraordinary thing occurred. The Cardinal had continued on his way, but the disturbance behind him caused him to stop. He saw the danger to the priest, retraced his steps, and followed the soldiers having the priest in charge into a little guard-house. Civilians and soldiers alike made way for the Prince of the church. Tlie Cardinal strode in, his extraordinary height lifting him head and shoulders over the crowds about him. Then he caught sight of the priest. Onlookers say he merely-looked at him steadfastly, raised his right arm, and beckoned; and, without a word having been spoken on either side, the priest followed the cardinal out of the door and down the road, and they continued on their way to Brussels. The Cardinal was then sixty-four years old, yet he walked from Malines to Vilvorde, a distance of seven miles and there took the electric tram. , "They are stupid, these Germans Sometimes I feel that tliev are like silly, cruel children, and that I should do'something to help them." The Cardinal is quoted as. having used these words, and they are a fair statement of his political attitude.-Even in his disobedience to the powers that be he is always priest as well as Prince. JThis gives him an .uncanny power over his people, and over the invaders as well. It,is impossible to dissociate the paternal from the political reason for his jrts, and so the Governor-General, who is-] a bold, downright, hard-handed military administrator in Belgium, finds all mouths closed but one, all arms paralyzed but one, all heads outwardly humbled 'but one-and that one the Cardinal's. Yet he can do nothing to change matters. The drama of - Ca-nossa and Canterbury is being played again in the twentieth century, and the priest still is victor. RALPH CONNOR TO HOLLWEG Canadian Author, Major In Army, Writes to the German Chancellor Ralph Connor, author of "The Sky Pilot," and other famous novels; is the Rev. Charles W. Gordon of Winnipeg in private life. Since the European war began, however, he has been Major Gordon, a chaplain -with the Canadian- troops in France. After a year and a half of service at the front he is now returning to Canada for two months' recruiting duty. He stopped over in London-long enough to write the following 'open letter to the German chancellor, which is published in'the Londonn Chronicle: : My Dear Bethman-HoUweg-Allow me to introduce myselfi- A mere Canadian, but a professional peacemaker and an enthusiastic peace lover, as all Canadians are!' You will understand, therefore, how my heart leaped with joy the other day, when I saw the headline in one of the London newspapers, "Germany Offers Peace," We Canadians ^ardently long for peace. It is for peace some thousands of us are on the war path now. For 25 years our sky has been dis-i figured by a dark cloud - bank on the inland* oiit> the-Cardinal wished to go I horizon, which we recognized as the to'Brussels-to-celebrate a High Mass German menace- We . grew,, tired of He seat word-of this to the German that cloud bank, and now.that it has commandant, but the commandant ~* ma MR. JUSTICE JAMES LEITCH Of the Supreme Court of Ontario, who died at Toronto, aged 67. throughout that section of the British army that met your men on the Sonrme there is only one conviction and that is that they have "got you beat." They may be mistaken, but I am telling what I know, that they are absolutely convinced that they have got you beaten. So, my dear Holly, .when you are writing your next peace speech get your eyes,off maps for n time and let them rest upon men. Thot^ your dove of peace will utter itself in notes more in keeping with its own gentle nature. No, my dear Herr Von Bethmaiin-Hollweg, because we earnestly ..and continuously long and pray for peace, we intend to press this blood red path bf_ war for months, or for years, it matters not, until your people are ready to accept the just and honorable, peace that we and our- allies stand ready to offer-a peace that shall forever eliminate from . the world the mad menace of German militarism.

HEAD Regina, Sask, Feb. 9.-Hon. "Bob" Rogers' open defiance of Mr. Justice Gait in Winnipeg, and his attitude in regard to judges acting as commissioners received the condemnation of W. B. Willoughby, leader of the Conservative party in Saskatchewan, on the floor of the legislature this afternoon. At the time of making the statement Mr.'. Willoughby was referring to the letters written to the press citl-cizing. the judgment of the ' royal commissioners in connection with the liquor charges heard 1>y the. Brown-; Elwood commission. Mr. Willoughby said that he did not approve of the stand takeu by Hon. Bob Rogers, with reference to Mr. Justice Gait that he had never approved : of his stand and that he had never <�t any place, either outside or in, expressed himself - as approving of Mr. Rogers' attitude.'

The Cardinal at once sent word to the commandant that he , would be obliged to walk to Brussels, i^and two hours afterwards he left the palace oa foot, accompanied by two or three priests, and began the long march south. Men, women and children thronged about him and .priests came from all over the city, and before the Cardinal was fairly started on his way his walk had taken on the character of a dan gerods popular -demonstration.^ At the first sentries he was'stopped and his personal "Ausweis"-a card of identification which all Belgians must carry-was- demanded.

They Couldn't "Hack Through." Canadians we are; do you know us? Ask your boys who were at'Ypres, once, twice, thrice; those, also, who were at the Somme, determined to "hack through." We are' some of the chaps that took your "hacking," but you didn't get "through,"- and-a friendly warning-you won't. You can imagine how bitterly you disappointed mo by your speech, in which you introduced your "world historic" peace offer. You may earnestly desire peace; I firmly believe you and your people do; but as a preliminary to peace negotiations your speech was hardly a success, j "Blazing, Bombastic Bunk" In short, - if you will pardon my blunt, alliterative way of Bpeaking, your speech, at this distance,' sounded like blazing, bombastic, bullying bunkum. The dove of peace. Is supposed to coo; your dove of peace pawed the earth like a bellowing bull. You say "look at the map;" You have been changing the color in spots and''so pleased are you that you summon the world to admire your handiwork. "Look at the map," you say. We answer, "Look at the men." Maps don't win wars-men - do- men, my dear Bethmann, men, , do you hear? You can roll up a map with one hand; but can you roll up men? Look at the men on your every front; those hosts of Russian men, of Italian men,: those steady, stern faced, enduring men of France anfT.those cool headed, cheery hearted," dogged men of British breed. Have you rolled them up? You thought you had rolled up the men of little Belgium, gallant little Belgium, and the men' of Serbia;* but they are-coming back at you again. True, you have ; rolled back these men on your every front,-but you haven't rolled them up, and today there are millions of us unbroken, unbeaten, and-note this carefully, my dear Hollweg-when next they come at you they will come with the machinery of war, and will meet you on something like even .j-erttisi:, and they ask nothing liiore^ihan: a fair field and no favor. Yd)i?Jcnow this is true. You learned thisViat Verdun-disastrous, glorious Yer.dun- you learned this on the Sonoime. "They've Got You"beat" I can not speak for other armies, but .Ottawa, Feb. 9.-Measures designed by the government to restrict the movement of civilian Canadians to the mother country to a minimum hav^been taken by the govemmen.t. An Order in council has been passed stating that "Passports enabling civilians- to leave Canada -for the' United Kingdom shall not hereafter be issued until the department of lexter-nal affairs is sa^sfted^that the reasons in favor of the issueffft passports are weighty, and urgent;and .until the applicant satisfies the department of his financial ability -teN maintain himself in the United Kingdom and to return to Canada." The order states that "information in the possession, of the government shows* that the.cosf'of living in the United Kingdom, already very high, is still on the increase, and the presence there of many Canadian civilians who are not performing any .useful service to the Empire, imposes, in the matter of food supply, an unwarranted burden .upon th^ -British government, and makes it-difficult for many of these visitors'to maintain'.": themselves, let alone return to Canada." It is further stated that already a number of Canadians have returned from England without funds and it is paobable that as soon as peace is declared there will be difficulty in providing for the return of Canadian troops. In such circumstances with the available tonnage, it will: be impossible to provide for the return of civilians. In view of all the circumstances dt is considered desirable to prevent any further exodus of Canadians to England. �<�'.�".
