Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 14, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta WINNIPEG WHEAT CaBh ....... . May ... July ,..>, a- * � � * ica,.was dealt with, not only in a patriotic spirit, biit with that didactic logic, which Justified the great Issues for which the ^Empire had unsheathed its mighty awQr>iaRpropHat6 r|fi9riSiace to the final'otitconiflf-------V / ; "Sound the loud timbrels o'er Egypt's dark sea,' Jehovah has triumphed! his people are free." With a tribute to Lethbridge for being in the forefront, with others, who by their generous aid.and support are helping to hold up the hands of the men who are in the trenches, Dr. Clark launched into his'subject. We are looking, he said, on one of the greatest dramas of lilstory, one which had no parallel in the world, and he considered that no greater calamity could fall on any man than, to be on the wrong side in the conflict which the nations are waging. Dealing with the causes Which led to the war, the speaker conceded that he differed from the opinion held by many public men, including those in this country, that its outcome was racial, brought about by the steeping of a people in the doctrines of Nietzsche, and Treltsohke. He very mjjch doubted that, the common people of Germany had any knowledge .of the philosophy of these writers, any more than the general populace of the British Empire had an Intimate acquaintance with the writings of Herbert Spencer and of John Stuart; Mill. For himself, he confessed he had read Herbert Spencsr, but was obliged to throw him up in despair, for he. 'w&a no wiser when he came near to the finish than when he started. The war was no quarrel of peoples. Nor was it brought about by economic causes: Britain was not Jealous of Germany's trade, nor Germany of Britain's. In fact the largest trade done by each country was.-with one another. The cause was political: due to the despotic form of governments in Ger-' many, Austria and Tnrlte'yr Treit-Bchke and Nietzsche said nothing new, and despotic government .was no new thing. We had it in KIngland, with the assumption of the doctrine of the Divine right of kings; and the wars ot the Boses and the wars of the Commonwealth were contests for the rights of freedom for a free people. In this respect, Germany was only.500 years hohind England. Absolute monarchy was always suppoHrted by a standing .array for repressing. the constitutional aspirations of the people of a country, and for making aggressive attacks on outside natibiis. This was pre-eminently the history of Austria. There was no country on the map of Eiirope on which Austria had not placed the stamp of itk absolute hands. It was shown in its relation in past history to'Italy, Prance, Greece and even to Germany when "it was first confederated. There has been no better,indictment of the policy of that country than that made by the late W. Ei Gladstone. Germ any and ,'rurkey were Irahued with the. same sentiments of despotic goverhnieht as Austria. The despotism of Turkey to gain by the sword and livev by the sword was well known, and through, her fflouthplecer Bernhardi, Germany had claimed her-as her natural ally.
