ARE AGIIAIG SEPARATION IDEA Quebec Papers Continue To Foster Idea of Formation of New Lower Canada Montreal, Jan. 4.-L'ldenl Cathol-Iquo publishes the following ou the breaking up of the Dominion: "The grain which we sowed scarcely nine months ago commences to give the finest possible appearance. No one will be able to prevent this magnificent movement from going on its way successfully. Several other public bodies purpose moving in favor otsa Lower Canada composed of the provinces of Quebec, Nova Scotia, New^ Brunswick and Prince Edward island. Wo must, however, go over the heads of the robbers at Ottawa and go directly to London and there expose our grievances, submitting our project of national reconstruction. We do not fear, like some, that we will bo obliged to remain in the company of a Borden or a Hughes under the pretext that we made a pact wrlth the'.r predecessors fifty years not the only soil for tho congenial growth of noxious plants. They oppose replacing Prussian mftltarism by Russian, French or English militarism." M. LItvInoff.declared hla emphatic belief that by the present negotiations and'propaganda by German soldtofs In tho east, Trotzky and Lenlne aro contributing to the downfall of Knlserlsm more effectually than' the allies fighting In tho west. Ho cdncludos: "I am sanguine erioagh to Imagine that the Russian nnft Gorman urmles on tho eastern front some day will march together against the common foo of the world's p.-olotarlnt In Germany Itself, ancl perhaps In other countries too." 1 , ' I Take Troops ^rom Persia I London, Jan. 4.-The ftolshcvlkl foreign minister. Loon Trotzky, Is said by tho Petrograd correspondent of tho Ex-dhango Telegraph company to havo sent a communication tb tho Persian government offering to begin negotiations tor the withdrawal of Russlati troops from Persian' territory provided Turkey will wltlidraw hers. The Russian' commissioners, the correspondent saya, :havo decided to negotlnto with the government of Ukraino on tho' basis of recognition of the Ukrainian republic provided it-does not hinder nillltnry operations against General Kaledlnes, the Cossack leader. It Is suggested that these negotiations be held at Smolensk or Vitebsk. According to the same correspondent, Jf. Kerensky, the deposed premier, has prepared an account of his service during tho period of the first revolution, which.Wll^be presented to I the constituent assembly. It includes I full details of conditions at the front during the June offensive and the reasons why >I. Kerensky decided to remove former Emperor Nichoas to Siberia. In the archives of the Russian foreign office there have been discovered documents of unusual interest dealing with negotiations between Germany and the imperial Russian government In regard, to a national ^convention to combat Socialists. Other curious documents, relating to the origin of the war, throw light on certain aspects of Gorman policy. Theso-papers will be published as soon as they have been classified. V . Resolution Patsed Petrograd, Jan. S.-^-The resolution, adopted after M. Trotzlty had delivered his address, was as; follows: i "This assembly oo.h/lrms the fact that the" program prOCliiimod by the rep.-esontatlves of thjB5|uadruple alliance at Brest-Lltovskvirecognlzes In principle the conclusion of a peace without annexations 'or indemnities. This recognition establishes the basis for further pourparler^.with a view of a general democratic'peace. "However, already in this declaration the representatives of the German government havdifetused to admit t'he free right of oppress.ed'nations and colonies seized before the'beginning^of the war In 1914 to dispose'of their own destiny.

The butchers are turning away dressed young pigs almost every day and some of the farmers are humane enough to kill off their young po"rk to keep them from starving although they are losing money by doing' it. What la* the government going to do about it? Is Hanha awake to his duties? It Is high time that someone with a spark ot patriotism in them should come to the farmers' aid It they want our fighting men to be fed.
