The Irish are" hot numerous enough In roost locnltttna (0 ranlntaln Kngltsh Catholic schools, and their children have to tnko what crumbs they can get of English Instruction ill tho schools open to them. The InuKuago question In Ontario also is, In its essence, an issue between Irish C.ithollcs and French Catholics over the control of tho schools common to both. The OoTornmcnt of Ontario and tlio Knglish-spenking Protestant majority have been dragged into tho dt.oputo much against their will. It began many years ago, when the oTnr-flow of Prench-spoaklng people from Quebec began to take up land and loan Industries In Eastern Ontario. It was accentuated by the struggle between English-speaking and French-speaking olomente In the Unlyersityo' Ottawa for tho control of that school Dates of expiry of subscriptions appear daily on addreiy label.

THE PROGRESS OP THE WAR Any doubt that the Kaiser does not maintain his place of supremacy In the minds of those In authority In Germany, is dispelled by the action of the Prussian house of lords in affirming the supreme right of the Kaiser to make war or peace for his people. This la in answer to President Wll-Bon's intimation that the allies will make peace only with the German people and not with the mllitjtristlc P*rty. Peace negotiations between Russia and Germany are still in progress, but little headway Is being made. There la little activity on the war fronts reported. ST.ANDREfSWItCH Annual Reports Submitted Show Splendid Work Done During Year Macleod, Jan. 18.-^The annual congregational meeting was held last week, when a large number of members and I adherents were present, tho church being well filled. The meeting was the largest and most enthusiastic ever held In .ho history of tho Congregation.

Tho ollc Record, in Its Issue of Docoraber 15th, says that the University--"was founded and brought to a flourishing condition by scholarly and apostolic priests-members of a religious order from France. French-Canadian nationalism drove these learned Frenchmen out of the College, and In many Instances back to France, as relentlessly as later on it drove out the English-speaking members of the staff and all who sympathized with them." The present Roman Catholic Bishop removal of the manse to the new s^te on 20th street, with the iraproveujonts, enhances the value of the church property by over $1000.00. It Is hoped and expected that a commencemniit will be made this year on tho erection of a new church, on tho corner of Third Avenue and 20th Street, which is tho finest location for a church building In the town of Macleod.

It was because of his experiences at that time, and his knowledge after be became Bishop of London, that English was not being sufficiently taught in the church schools of the French-Canadian ner year of the church, and fulfills tho prophecy made at the induction, of tho Rev. Mr. Kennedy in December, 1916, that "Bright days were In store for old St.; Andrew's church, Macleod." Never before has there been displayed such earnestness and en'husiasm In QUEBEC'S EXCUSE ON THE LANGUAGE QUESTION One of the excuses that is oftentimes ^ut forward by our French-Canadian fellow dtiiens, for Quebec's failure to measure up with the rest of Canada In its participation in the war, iji the alleged failure ot Ontario to properly treat the French-Canadians In that province on the language question. To us, It is hard to understand any people with a proper appreciation ot the war, offering excuses for failure to participate to' the utmost The excuse offered by Quebec is flimsy and based on prejudice and Bot on fact. Now what are the actual facts? They were so plainly stated the other day by the Toronto Globe that we give its article In full, because we want our people in this section of the Dominion to fully understand the situation. Some good people may have the idea that the French-Canadian has been badly treated. The truth is that they enjoy rights In Canada that they could not have obtained in tha United States. British rule has given them more privileges than they couM have secured in any other country of the world. Here is the Globe's article, that we spoke ot: Are the people of Ontario guilty ot *Vmsstanlsm" in insisting that the language of instruction in tha schools of the ProTlnee shall be English, and that the only exoeptloas to this rule �hall be in eases where young chll-drad trba Rrench-apeaking homes kaTe to ba Uoght biUngually unUl ther ara able to take Instructloa in XngUaht Mr. T.

On the other hand, some of the Red Guards have resigned, stating they were misled Into the belief that thus joining the organisation they would assist In further|lng the cause of the revolution, whereas they considered the action of the Bolshevlkl toward the constituent assembly to be opposed to the principles ot liberty.
