CJHAKTJSMiTH, Assistant Manager. Winnipeg, Jr of lato attained prominence tlm.v;r.'i the editorial columns of the Toreut,, Glooe. My motive is not c;:i) >r:ous, but wholly with the object of inducing more sober and caicl'ul .-on dderation of a tremendously impoitcui national problem. Under the editorial h-Mtliiiff "Civil-ianism, not. Militarism." '.Militarists and the Schools," and "lioys and the War Passion,' 'tho G.olm of December 27, 2X. and 30 emp!iati trie attractions and itieiiemetits of the ,-;a\ag" for the true chivalry and moral Ideals or Ciiristtiin civilization.' Finally- 'inere is no real pro^n ;'s by reverting to the lower types of fecial antagonism or ministering to the baser instincts of imperfect human nature." "'hero ia no desire on the part of this writer to attempt to match intellects with the scholarly and versatile editor of the Globe, yet it seems that the spirit of these editorials whose essence may bo gleaned from the above quotations, lias been a conception in error. The venerable Lord Strath-eona, through whose munificence and fine patriotic spirit the Slrathcona Trust was established, surely did not have in mind tlie ideals citicted above at which the Globe shouts "anathema". The object of tho Slrathcona Trust Fund is to provide a system of physical and military training in the schools which will inculcate a sounder patriotism and lay the foundations of a move efficient citizei.ship. The natural inference is that this system of Cadet training established in the schools will Inter facilitate "Universal military training for Canada's entire male population." The writer cannot agree with the Globe that this will produce a reversion "to1 tho lower types of racial antagonism." Not for a moment do militarists seek to promote a spirit of antagonism or aggression; the Canadian militiaman does not (to use an idiom) stalk about with a chip on his shoulder inviting strife. The acme of Canadian militarism, the Canadian Defence League, proclaims its goal as "tho efficiency of the Canadian militia for home defence." Surely that is a commendable object. In the century and a half of British rule in Canada, when has the militia ever been the instrument of aggression? As for militarism destroying "the true chivalry and the mora! ideals of Christian civilization,' history rather substantiates the opposite. Where shall we find, the world, over, militarism more pronounced than iii Germany? And where do we find a more desirable type oE citizen-frugal, industrious, law abiding, sober, deeply religious, distinguished for great advancement along industrial, scientific and educational lines? The Globe's vision of "tatoo. paint and feathers" is a mirage, springing from causes far remote from the i establishment of military training in the public schools. The Globe confounds tho soldier with the guerilla; national defence with Napoleonic conquests; national self-assertion with national combativeness and antagonism On one more point the writer would take issue with the "Globe." In discussing the matter of militia efficiency for home defence it queries: "Defence against what? Certainly not against attack or invasion from the Atlantic, the Arctic or Pacific." Omitting the Arctic, why should we not prepare to defend invasions from the Atlantic or Pacific? Tho British fleet is concentrated in home waters, all that protects Canada from Western, invasion is the Anglo-Japanese Treaty, and diplomacy is very fickle. The Atlantic has no protection except the 3,000 mile proximity of the British fleet. We have no navy of our own, nor will we have an efficient sea-worthy defensive squadron for years. What will defend us if not our militia? And then, reading between lines, can be noted tho subtle suggestion that we must expect invasion from south of latitude 40'. We admit the possibility We must take account of possibilities. Certainly it is not probable that the United States will ever again engage Great Britain in war, but in the first, place it is remotely possible, and in tlie second place the V. S. has no special lease of power to repel or exclude a hostile force which would use that country as a base of operations against Canada. Both these cases have, historical precedent. The claim of protection from the Munroe doctrine is a broken reed. If the U. S. were threatened their attitude would be that expressed by the Romans of old toward their subject, provinces, "Why trouble to defend the barn when the home is in peril?" In conclusion-the obvious design of these editorials of the Globe appears Sadontarr Habits Develop Constipation LACK OF EXEUCSSE Brings on Troubles which arc Best Corrected by Dr. Morse's Indian Reoi Pills Man was intended to live an active, outdoor Hie, and his digestive system was modelled accordingly. Indoor work with hands or head, long hours sitting or standing still, especially in air that's none too good, slow down the healthy activities of stomach, liver, kidneys and the millions of tiny skin glands. Constipation, headaches, indigestion, biliousness, rheumatism and similar troubles follow. Then the worth of that good old reliable family medicine, Dr. Mane's Indian Root Pills, is appreciated.

Petersburg correspondent telegraphs; A commercial panic, with many failures, has been precipitated by the ukase expelling the remaining Jews from the city of Kieff by the end of the Hussian year. Among those expelled are 164 merchants of the First Guild, with their families. Ttajlr status means that they are, traders In a large way of business, and the Mos-cow produce exchange, in order to protect the entire home market,, has had to petition the minister':of finance to modify or delay expulsion. "The peittion . ts forth tthat the 164 Jewish merchants do an extensive business in Russia, with an overturn in the last year of over $26,000,000. They have current liabilities of $12,-500,000 in bills of exchange, of which three-quarteTB are owing In Moscow and Lodiz. "The Jews of Kieff have transferred most of their cash 'balances to Roumanian and Austrian banks, so that an Immediate effect of their expulsion would be to flood Hoscow and Lodlz with bad debts, and involve thousands of smaller firms in the retail trade," As London city hall has bqen sold, Bishop Fallon has offered the use of St. Peter's parish hall auditorium for the discussion of municipal issues.
