EARTHQUAKE CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE speaker, for the ruling classes in despotic countries, to make war. There was no constitutional government in Germany;'. Tli'efe 'was rib doubt that government acts were brought into the Reichstag,-but if they were defeated thfey went on unconcernedly. Dr. Ciairk. then proceeded to trace In able xi'shion,'..the'history;, of the methodB''bf our enemy cpuntries. .Step by step h.^ weiht.through the processes whlcji merged'themselves into the present outobrae. Russia had fought for the f reettom of Servia and of the Balkan States, and after thirty-five years she hadt^to begin anew the work to^ day. '^^ Rel'en&g tbjthe approximate cause of the war, the assassination at Sarajevo, th^;Bpeaker,,''while hot excusing It, declared, that the ^Autoian Crowa Prince httd no right in Bosnia, which, with �ei|egoyina;;had been filched by Austria. He then went on to refer generally to the.-evils of war in its relation to the holding of power, alluding to the' example aet and the experience of the two nations on this continent 'with its unfortified boundary line and with, consequently, no inclination to fly at each, "other's throats on the slightest provocation. Here he quoted Edmund Burke's lines: "Power gradually extirpates Tfrom the mind every humane and gentle virtue." , . , As a cdntrast to tbe methods of Great Britain and , Germany, the speaker referred to the shelling of Scarborough,ibyth'e Germans, and to the abstention by the British" and French fleets from' the bombarding of the undefended ports on the Adriatic. "Why did we not bombard them?" asked Dr. Clark, and he ga'yo his own ans'iver,^ received with tumultuous a-pplause,: "Because we are not Germans." The subject of the address, though a well-worn one, .'vvfts treated from new^ points of view, and with fresh searchlights brought to bear on It, making it highly, interesting; instructive and entertaining, and the speaker concluded by stating that th^e consequences of the war would be a constitutional freedom spread all over Europe with Prussian militarism and Turkish despotism running a deadheat out of the continent. Triumph will ensue to the banners of the. AllieB, "because above them floats the igoddess of Liberty and Truth." ,, : .. . Songs, were contributed during the evening by-Miss Dieseth and Mr. R. T. Brymher, 'with Mrs. Frank 'Wad-dlngton at tha piano, and a recitation by Mr. 'L. Asquith, An unanticipated itom in the. programme was the sudden giving out of the electric light, whicli, however, did not seriously interfere with the address, and gave every one in the audience tho opportunity of singing without embarrassment, under the clioak of darkness "Tipperary" and "Rule, Britannia." A vote of thanks was tendered Dr. Clark by the Rev. Mr. Cobbledlck and seconded by the Rev. Mr. DenoOiii the audience heartily responding to the same. > Though the loss of life and ptjssibly the damage may be less than it was. in 1908, the area of the disturbance greatly exceeds the Messina earthquake.
