M,.�,uto.TCC0n0in,(* warfare aitei the conclusion with open covenants, disarmament by mutual consent and freedom, as fat-as possible from economic barriers, I this aspiration could have ho terrors 'for the British. But in the. fighting world of today it would mean disarming the sea power without any^ corresponding disarmament of military power on land, which it argues, would work to the great advantage of militarist land powers and to the -great disadvantage of all other^, America included. Lord Northeliffe's Evening News, while of the opinion that President Wilson's declaration regarding the removal of economic barriers and the freedom of the seas need further eluci-i datiou, endorses enthusiastically his j attitude toward Russia^ Slimming up the newspaper says: "President Wilson is for a free work} on lines endorsed by all the entente allies, but it means the surrender hy Germany of all her ambf- j Hons, and she will need be in a very j chastened mood before she accepts." j The Evening Star again lauds Mr,-Wilson as tlje greatest A~""'ean president since Lincoln, and says: "He once more tutbio unspoken thoughts of humanity-thoughts too deep for old world politicians to ut-: ter. Mr. Wilson has the supreme gift of articulating and interpreting to the world its anguished vision of the fu- 0 I -o.e satisfaction in this country." ;Ui'-: The^ most iijr lling passage in. iU'; .l0 w li1f'n hf; J"' only paper to comment on President: that henceforth world politics-there-, speech takes the 'leading places hi Wilson's inclusion in this programme j lations between nation and nation both the news and editorial columns of absolute freedom of navigation upon i shall be governed by the rule of right, of the London press today. One newspaper describes U ay "the magna charta of future peace." Coming so closely on the heels of Vyaini&i' Lloyd George's address at the Irf&Jcjr "conference, Uic words of the 1 political independence of all the seas, outside of territorial waters. (That will of the entente is expressed. The newspapers .say that in such a i in the .two great messages that have world as that to which the president j been issued with hi a fow days of each looks forward, with an association tu , other by the British premier and the nations affording a guarantee of the j president of tire I'nlteU Slates, states, J "These two powerful messages from FIFTY APPEALS Winnipeg, Jan. 7.-About fifty appeals from Mr. Justice PrudhopimeV, uppea! tribunal Will be carried Hi Ottawa, it wa^ learned this mornhij". the political leaders of the two great Knglish - speaking 'commonwealths, agreeing as they do in all essential points, cannot hut have a tremendous influence for good."

These little articles are beautifully made, and daintily trimmed wit ii tatting and lace, and are to go to a young girl no older than themselves who unfortunately, will require them very soon. From another section of Campfire girls we received a quantity of children's clothing, made expressly for the ones who received them, as well as underwear and other things they had collected fq$ us. These girls merit our very special thanks. The Lethbridge Herald's Goodfellow fund, amounting to a little over ?300, was the only means by which we were enabled to send out. 43 Christmas hampers containing, turkey or chick-on plumb pudding, cranberry jolly, apples, oranges, cheese, nuts, candy, tea, and as far as we could, preserved fruit, mince pies and cake. These were put up as1 attractively as we knewf how, with tissue paper, Christ-maq stickers and tags, and decorated witli holly, donated by Mr. Terrlll Four patients were sent boxes of dainties with Christmas greetings. One hundred and four children were made happy by the hig scrlni stockings filled with nuts, candy, fruit, toys, and books, hair ribbons ami'pretty handkerchiefs, little red wagons, or teddy bears, too big to go into even these O.S. stockings were tied on the outside and looked very "Christmasy" indeed. In addition to these we bought, nearly $00 worth of wool undearwoar, stockings, .and sweaters, and distributed them where we knew they were needed. A little dinner party-for I old women at the Mission, concluded out-Christmas work, and no part of it, we believe, was more enjoyed. We wish to thank (he Herald, an/I all those who so generously contributed (o the Goodfellow's fund, cither through the Herald or to the Mission direct. (�gd.) A. M. Tilley, Supt. I i 1 i ! PetrograU, Jan. 10.-Unofficial reports of the firSTsession of The peace negotiations at Brest-Litovsk when they were resumed^ on Tuesdav snV that Leon Trotzky, bolshevik! foreign m nister, insisted upon the removal of the conference lo Stockholm. He is reported to1 have told the German and Austrian delegates that, if they did not. accecje to request, they would feel the weight of the arms of the Russian democracy and the weight ol the voice of their own democracies. The Evening Post says the Germans d!d not refuse to continue the negotiations, but that it was not specified where they would take place. I IN A GREAT ROW RYS. CHALLENGE ACI Winnipeg, Jan.' 9.--The Canadian Northern Railway and subsidiary companies such as the C.N.R. Kxpress and G.N.W. Te'legraphs, have challenged the Manitoba Workmen's (lompensa-tJon Act as unconstitutional, have refused to be bound by its provisions from Its inception, have paid no funds | Into the protective fund of the compensation board, and have paid no j premiums to the Insurance companies. When a man is injured they abide by the award of (he compensation commission; the commission pays the [award Itself, and then battles for weeke �?r months to collect from the C.N.R. tympanies. The government haa taken up the challenge, and lias retained Isaac Pitbludo, K.C., to fight Ambterdam, Jan. ih-^V number of disabled German soldiers were invited on Monday to attend a meeting of the Fatherland Party, founded recently in the interests of the pan-Germans and other uncompromising elements. They grew restless under the ' flow of Chauvin'st talk from the* annexationists, saytj tfio Socialist organ Vor-waerts of Berlin. They wore not permitted to speak, and a stormy scene followed. One of the speakers referred to the disabled soldiers as deserters who had left Hindoiiburg's banner to betray their comrades. "Rome pt the cripples." Vorwnerts says, 'were belabored with sticks and abused by the heroic 'home warriors' of the Fatherland party. iThe police finally ordered the d sabled soldiers to ieavcthe hall." In concluding its account of the meeting, the newspaper remarks: "The 'home warriors' of the Fatherland party were left to themselves and now ^know what the field grevti think oi them."
