PER |�LyG. The^War Stripped to its Skeleton CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE speaker, for the ruling dasses in despotic countries, to make war. There was no constitutional government in Germany;'. TJiere was no doubt that government acts were brought into the Reichstag,-but if they were defeated th^y went on unconcernedly. Dr. Clark then proceeded to trace in able fiCshioh,'the'history, of the methods'bf our Onemy countries. Step by step hji wefat.through the processes which mlrged'themselves into the present outcbme. Russia had fought for the freedbm of Servla and of the Balkan Stati^a, and after thirty-five years she had^ito begin anew the work today. ^' -' ReferiShg to-the approximate cause of the war, the' assassination at Sarajevo, th^': speaker, "while not excusing it, declaiqed that the .-Austrian brown-Prince h&d no right in Bosnia, which, with iHertsegpylna;^ ;liad been filched by Austria. He then went on to refer generally to -the; evils of war in its relation to the iholding of power, alluding to the example set and the experience of the two nations on this continent 'vrith its unfortified boundary line and with, consequently, no iuclinatio-n to fly at each "other's throats on the slightest provocation. Here he quoted Edmund Burke's lines: "Power gradually extirpates ifrom the mind every humane and gentle virtue." ., , _ As a contrast to the methods of Great Britain arid - Germany, the speaker referred to the shelling of Scarborough by the 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 gave his own answer,, received with tumultuous applause': "Because we are not Germans.'"- ' The subject of the address, though a �well-worn one, ;wi?s treated from new points of view, arid with fresh searchlights brpught to bear on it, making it highly,jnterestingj instructive and entertaining, and the speaker ,concluded by stating that this 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 AUi-es, "because above them floats the goddess of Liberty arid Truth." . .,c. . Songs, were contributed during the evening by. Miss Dieseth and M1..R, T. Brymner, with Mrs. Prank W'ad-dlngton at the piano, and a recltatiofi by Mr. 'L. Asquith. An unanticipated item in the programme-was the sudden giving but of the electric light, which, however, did not seriously interfere with the.address, and gave every one in the audience the opportunity of singing without embarrnssment, under the cloak of darkness "Tipperary" and "Rule, Britannia." A vote of thanks was tendered Dr. Clark by the Rev. Mr. Cobbledick and seconded by the Rev.' Mr. Denoon, the audience heartily responding to the same. � The inyslorj uTiliP .Spoticcl Collar.
