We rely upon our strong position, our loyal intentions and our just rights." The chancellor announced that Dr. Von Kuehlmann has been instructed to reject the Russian proposal to transfer the peace negotiations to Stockholm. During the debate a member of the centrist party expressed approval of the whole attitude of the German representatives at Brest-Litovsk and said: "Our aim must not he only to arrive at an understanding with the Bolshevik! government, but to reach a lasting poaco with the Russian people and prevent war in future." The Kaiser's Aim Toronto, Jan. 4.-A special cable to the Mall and Empire from London says: "Germany's manoeuvres at the peace negotiations with Russia are interpreted by the London Times as indicating the Kaiser's aim not only to accomplish the political conquest ot western Russia, but to aid the pan-Turanian movement which has for its object the linking up of the 16,000,000 Turkish speakjng people in Russia in a line of Mnhemmedan states, stretching from Kazan through Bokhara to Chinese Turkestan and from Oxus river to Siberia. "The Germans hope Turkey -,vill dominate all these sfatos, says the writer, and Turkisn domination will moan German domination. Thus by control of western Russia and middle Asia, Germany will have attained a position incomparably more commanding than any other power in the old world." To Recognize Lenine London, Jan. 4.-Recognition of the Lenine government in Russia by the entente allies is'probable owing to the developments in the Russo-German Negotiations, according to the Daily Chronicle, which prints the statement in heavy 'type. The statement apparently is based on a contribution "by a diplomatic correspondent" which is printed beneath it. The writer says that owing to the Bolsheviki discovery of German duplicity anything may happen. "There are," he says, "three alternatives. The Bolsheviki may give way, the Germans may give way or there will be a rupture of relations. ! The first is hardly likely in view of I Foreign Minister Trotzky's declara-I tion. The second is possible, for the Germans are past-masters in the art of specious compromise. But the third is most probable isince the Bolsheviki have exhibited a perspicacity which w'as hardly expected in this country. "Russia, the land of boundless surprises, may quite possibly witness a revival of war, if not in the most active form, it might at least he a sullenly defensive war necessitating the keeping on the frontier of a considerable Gorman force. It would at least prevent those pleasant and profitable commercial exchanges which Germany hopes for. "Assuming such a situation and the consolidation of Bolsheviki power, provided failure to extract a peace does not wreck the Lenine regime, then recognition of that power as a defacto government follows. Since that, is so a Socialist would be the logical representative of that government and Maxim Litvinoff. who has been i appointed, is a likely enpugh occupant (of the embassy." "Referring to the retirement of Sir George W. Buchanan, the British ambassador to Russia, whose services are highly praised, tho writer says: "In h's place probably would be sent a diplomat in marked sympathy with the ideas of revolutionary Russia. "Be that as it may, we may expect shortly some new statement of policy with regard to Russia which, should it lean toward the latest developments and democracy, would undoubedly strengthen tho allied cam'.o in Russia." : : : : : > ? : : : : TAX BUSINESS IN MANITOBA Winnipeg, Jan. 4.-It is learned today that there will be submitted- to the provincial legislature at the opening session a bill imposing a tax on every business in Manitoba. It is said that while the tax will not be onerous in any one case, it will bring the province considerable revenue. The bill will also have the effect, it is stated, of bringing all business enterprises under certain hew regulations to be fixed by the government. .;. ,. .;. ;j. .; .;. {. cj. < 95 PER CENT IN ALBERTA REPORT Calgary, Jan. 4. - Niuety-five per cent of the drafted men have responded to the first call.

MAN OF ACTION JAPS TO DEAL WITH RUSSIA Copenhagen, Jan. 4.-Tho Lokal An-zeiger of Berlin says it karns from Tokio that the Japanese government, has decided to enter into diplomatic relations with the new Russian gov-era*WMtt ORGANIZE ALTA. William G. McAdoo is President Wilson's son-in-law, and for some time has been Secretary of tho United States Treasury. He is considered the big man of the Wilson cabinet, and is said to be the man who some months ago convinced the president that the United States was ready and anxious to go to war with the Hun. McAdoo was strongly pro-ally from the start, and had he had his way it is believed the United States would have taken the plunge much sooner than she did. He is pre-eniinentl}- a man of action, and a man who has clone things. Mr. McAdoo was born near Marietta, Ga., on October 31, 1S63, his father being William G. McAdoo, M.A., LL.D., Judge, and soldier in both the Mexican and Civii wars, who spent the latter part of his' life as professor of English and history in the Uni-' versity of Tennessee.

At 29 he moved to New Yrork, being without capital or acquaintances when he reached the metropolis, but in a few years he launched the gigantic enterprise of burrowing under the Hudson River to I link the cities of the Jersey shore to the shopping districts of Manhattan. In six years he put through this wonderful feat of engineering. He was a big factor in electing President Wilson, who appointed him secretary of the treasury, and'later gave him his second daughter's hand in marriage. C'nlgary, Jan. 1.-J. II. Lamb, member of the provincial municipal hail board, addressed the directors of the United Fanners of Alberta this'morn-ing, proposing that the provincial hail insurance should be reorganized so that it would embrace every municipal and local improvement district of the province, and asking for tho support of tho farmers' organizations for such a nme.
