THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The probability is again mentioned of a breach in the p�ace negotiations ' between Qermany and Russia. In the meantime the existing armistice liMbeiki again extended to February IBth. The Bolshevtki power in Russia continues/in strength, and it is indicated that it may. bo .able, to hold out for months. General Kaledlnes has again been defeated by Bolsbe-yJM troops. Quiet reigns on the majority of flronts, winter conditions . Interfering With operations on a large scale. THE DOCTRINES OF BOURA88A , But if you say that Germany made the war because she was preparing for It tor years, what do you say of the rat�nte allies, who were also pre-yarins? It. is nonsense to say that they were not. .... It WM Henri Bourassa who uttered tW� expression. And it is this same Bonrassa, who is largely responsible for the opinion (hat exists on the war In ihe proTlnce ,6t Quebec. Bpurassa is deliberately atteihpting to mislead .. the people of Quebec aad-Tie h�� succeeded in doing so up to the presents He has Quebec belieTing that Britain U tk� much responsible tor the war as Germany and that Britain was as well i^repared for war as Germany.' Quebec does not seem to know, largely because, its edaoatlon on the war haa been neglected, that B^tain did Ifji utmost to prevent the war. All that ii^ necessary to'establish tha:t fact li to read the cdrrespondeuce between Sir Edward Grey and the other pow-; era and to know that Germany resisted all. propoaals of conferences and^ arbitrations io prevent the struggle.' As for preparation, we,know iiiat Brit-ian wasn't prepared. It had a ^mall �tandlng army and took months, yes �everal years, for it to prepare to uphold" iU'part in the, war. Had Britain been, prepared the war might not have I lasted six mbhtha. Bourassa knows these facta tn bl true but he . la too pro^eman to tell the truth. Again Bouraasa says Canada has no right to be in the war because we are apt fighting for otir defence. He evi-AentlyhelieTes we. should.only fight , when the 'enemy, is at our gates. Tfie 9�ny would have been there if the WkTT of Britain hadn't been powerful I' anough to prevent it.aftd If Britain and ' Its Domtntons had not concentrated forces in France to keep the enemy from Bweeping over the worlds Had . an Allan line or a C. P. it. Atlantic ' steamer been torpedoed and sunk, with the loss'of Canadian lives, as wm the case with the Lusitania, would Bour-asf% have con ^ What aroxthe Bolshevlki, and what will be their future influence on Russian domestic politics? A mob, even while acting as -one man under the Impulse'of a strong emotion, can never be regarded as expressing the whole definite, collected will of all its participants. Mobs are the product of some terrible, unreasoning emotion. When that, emotion haa spent itself in the attainment of its specific object, the mob 'ciuiciUy-transforms j Itstflt again Into a gathering of law^bidingf reasonable citizens seeHing order and looking for a legally establlshod authority,; to guide..and co-ordinate its conduct ' This was true of the French Revolution. It win be true of the Russlan^itevblution. ' / � Ii\ Russia, as everywhere else, there is d class of Intellectual people trained and educated in various walks of civilized sociat life who are the natural and the only possible leaders in a state organism. They must and, they will come Into their own! Their advent to power, is m6rely a question of tl^e. A� long as there are crowds of credulous individuals who easily absorb all kinds of noisy verbosity, taking it at Its face value, there,will be a chance for soap-box orators to persuade the masses to try, out some new, promising political-and social experiments. But as soon as these experiments . have been transformed Into bitter experience and have led directly to the punishment of hunger, miseiT, and; general chaos, the flippant crowd will overturn the soap)-box�i8 and flock in utter despondency to the guidance of those leaders' who have proved their capacity to briug Back the lost bliss of law and order and the.neana of satisfying the first riecesslti^s of lite. .The thoughtful, studious, and Joyal elements.'of Russia must not be deprived of the possibility of offering to the masie|g,the blessings of an orderly st^te organism. If, in a not unnatural impatience with and distrust- of the Bolshevlki; the Bllles sboult^ cut off Russia from any aid In money and supplier, they w-111, only drive the Russian htasse? to despair, and will force them to graw the nearest hand stretched but. to them with the offer of appeasing their hunger and covering their shivering bodies. -Dr. Goldenweiser is quite optimistic to the mind of'most of us, too much so, butfhlB contentions seem reasonable and it lii just as well'that we should not abandon all hope of Russia, remaining a factor in the war.

CooQ, "who "camp out; In rfaVor, of the question/which action caused a lot of Interesting. di'scuBslon .oii the.part of hia audience. , ? "This war has opened the minds ot many men," said Mr. Cbcq, "non-entitiet) and celebrities al'k^, to onany deep' and hitherto undreamed of re-Ilaotlonsj Tho general trend of, these have been more or less sociaiistic, evea revolutionary In bplnlon.^nd one of these Is the'.questlons Of heredltory, titles. Groat changes of opinion have taken place in the last three years ontl these have repulted in the general idea that a king Is beneficial. Of course this point is. debatable. In taking up this matter I am faced with considerable difficulty, I approach It with some diffidence as I know that many of you have decided views on this subject. It may be safely said that a handle to a name is as common In the most deitSocratic as in the most, autocratic of communltlbs. 'With th's I have nothing to find.fault, and I take it for granted that .such Is the general opinion. Hereditary ^ titles have recently been subjected to a. lot of publicity and limelight as a result of the bestowal ot titles tor 'party services rendered.' I cons'der that titliE( so bestowed are much'to be regretted by all,. The same matter was taken UP It). the House of Lords In England and Lord Curzon is credited with making the following statement, 'the idea ot a mercenary transaction in which a peerage is given is utterly ab-horent to any free thinking man,' and I think you will all agree wJth him,.* although if tho bestowal of titles Is part^ of Our party eystem I think It should be regarded In the light of the lesser evil. So far as the general ^community is concerned. It is far better that the favored one receive a title than a fat contract tor which the people would have to pay. Hereditary tHIes are a part of the constitution of j Great Britain, which by the way, dlf-Y fers trom that ot all other demot"-;Mc latlons in that there are two hoi) tea n.-the government, legislative and executive which to my mind is the true democratic Idea. . "In the origin of ^he House ot Lords : In England, It was ordained that thoy'i should bo tt hereditary, body of councillors to a horbdlti^ry king. Time has shown us the wisdom of this plan, one which has never In tho slightest In-, > .terfeved with the rights pf the uatlon..'V| The passing of the Reform Bill of; 4832 Is aufflq'ent lUuBtratlpn of this.! fact, I think ,^vq In Canada .wOuld. be a great deal bktor oft If in place ot; the senate we ha^l . an hereditary I house. In nine cases out of ten the i members of the senate are-appointed, for as I sn'd betoro, party services ren- � dered, With the other case this would be Imposslhlo. Tho name 61' Gladstone has been used oxtenslvoly . as an areumoht against, the question. The reason that Gladstone refused a peerage was that' both by raarr.'ago and birth he was a member of the! ultra-arlstocrallc clroles. The s^me \�\ tViie Of Pitt the commoner,, who was! (h?
