It serves to show that in spite of Us Email numbers the members of the force have been vigilant in the detec- tion and prosecution of crime. In the attention drawn In the re port to the number of doors and win- dows found left open, there would ap- pear to be that ;i 'greater oo-ope ration between the public and the police :.s necessary for the safe-guarding of the former. The carelessness noted sferves ftfi temptation to- the criminal and ftddi to the labors of the police force. There should to a sympathy between the public anil police in assisting the force as far as possible in maicing tbe paths of the criminals not too A due attention given to the ot premises by seeing Uat doors and windows are secured la the stores would be of material help. In the araeunt of fines in the city police court, and 'With the fact that out of U0.77S paid, went to the provincial treasury, there must appear that there is an unequal division. The natter calls for some adjustment so that the city gets a fair share of the proceeds of the fines, seeing tiiat the whole onus of the expenses of the force falls on it. Chief Gillespie in the recommenda- tions he has made shows that he has a keen and laudable interest in his Work, he is actuated by conscientious motives in the discharge of his duty, and this calls for encouragement by the city authorities. The report as a whole to ibow that the police are ulive to their work in the interests of the citizens for whose protection they are a necessary institution. Then7. is a zealous desire on the part of Chief of Police Gillespie to make the force under his cummaud live up to their responsibilities in regard to the public. Ruhr a state of organised civil war arose. Tim Comraunlgti overpowered and illmrmed tlio local and made themselves complete masters of Hie towns and mlaes. were op- posed by the the regular army. The Kbcrt Government, lu these circumstances, considered it necessary to send large reinforce- ments of the Heichswehr into tho dis- trict; this, however, they were un- able to do under the Treaty, and they therefore applied to tho Allies for permission. They acted before permis- sion was received, ami thus nuidc themselves guilty of a violation of the Treaty. French Government thereupon advanced outside the occu- pied area and occupied the towns of Frankfurt, Darmstadt, and the adjoin- ing country. They had apparently tak- en this.serious action without coming io an agreement with their Allies be forehand of their iutentioii. There had already been serious dif' ferences of opinion between Great Britain and France as to the gemtral attitude to be adopted towards the execution of the Treaty. The 1-Yench were alarmed by the agitation which seemed to be arising in Great Britain for revision. Their position indeed was a dlfflcult one. Owing to the re- fusal of America to ratify the Treaties of Alliance between France on the one side, the United States and Great Britain.on the other, had not come into force. France, therefore, might lind heraelf left vithout protection viB-i-vis which the mil- itary and monarchal elements were undoubtedly fighting hard for suprem- acy. whole attitude towards the Treaty was the subject of discussion at the meeting of Prime Ministers held at San Remo in April, 1920, when Do You Know? GERMAN DISARMAMENT. In regard to the report of the Su- preme Allied Council on a plan for the disbandment of German military units, and in the fact that the disarm- ament order was to take effect so tar back: as July 10th last year, it would appear that Germany has done her best to evade the order. The Allies, It now appears, intend to take string- ent measures to enforce the provisions of the Treaty of Versailles as to dis- armament. In view of the present decision of the Supreme Allied Council, a recapit- ulation of the manner in which Ger- many has so far contrived to escape the order as to disarmament should serve to show the spirit in which she the obligations imposed on her. When the disarmament order was flnrt the German Government made strong representations that in View of the disturbed state of the country and the danger of Communist risings, they could not carry out the clauses of the Treaty within tho pre ecribed time. In February, 1920, there- fore, the time for the reduction of the array to men was extended from March 31 to July 10. The matter threatened to become one of serious political importance, involved as It wag with critical events that took place in Germany itself. On March 13, 1920, a serious revolt (the Kapp took place in Berlin. Reac tlonary elements, supported largely by troops who had been brought back from the Eastern frontier and were on the point of disbandment, seized Berlin. The Government fled to Dres- den and for live days the Monarchists held the capital. The Ebert Govern- ment, however, appealed to the peo- ple, and at their suggestion -recourse was had to the weapon of a general Before this the reactionaries to give way and on March 20 left Berlin; it is characteristic that EI they did so they fired promiscu- ously from machine guns upon the crowds in the streets. The Ehert gov- ernment returned, but with diminish- ed prestige and authority; in partic- ular Nogke, who, as Minister of De- fence, had been for over a year th3 itrong man of .the Government, had 1So resign; lie was accused of having, in bis struggle against the Independ- ent Socialists and the Communists, to depend upon the reactionary party. Moreover, this crimin- al outbreak was, ai wui inevitable, followed by serious in many of the country, Especially in the district of and the in the chair, reached that Signer Nittl I agreement "was French troops should be withdrawn from Frankfurt and Darmstadt as soon as the German troops in the Ruhr Valley had been reduced to the numbers permitted by the Treaty; it was also agreed that there should be no revision of the Treaty, but the French were assured that the British Government would support them in their demands that Germany should punctually and fully carry out her ob- ligatkms. France alao strengthened her position by concluding a separate political and military convention with Belgium. It may be noted in this con- nection that Holland refused to make a similar arrangement, preferring to itand alone.

It was established that the Germans had not carried out their obligations un- der the Treaty; at one time the nego- tiations threatened to break down; eventually, however, under the threat of the immediate occupation of furth- er territory by the Allies, the Ger- mans undertook to take all the meas- ures necessary; on the other hand, the Allies again extended the period for the reduction of the Reichswehr to ai rinks.

At present one. The Liberal clear its skirts ot a multitude of things, including the anti-conscription campaign during the war, and this movement was a way out of the difficulty.

MelVOR AGAIN PRESIDENT COVVLEY WOMEN'S INSTITUTE Kill "There is Farmers' a great Party difference be- :ween the Farmers' government of Dntario and the Farmers' party of the west. The party in the west are not Canadians. They are mostly people from the U.S. and foreigners They want, free trade, which wouk .ead to annexation. Most of those people haven't been in Eastern Can ada. They have no sentiment for the east nor any for Canada. They are following the same movement as took place in North Dakota, and which put that state high and dry within a year. They smashed up everything, even to the banks. There was too much socialism in it." January 1. If the Allied Commission I be ordered for stock of Control reported that the agree- T ment was not being carried out, the Allies would immediately occupy the Ruhr or other territory. In carrying out this agreement the German Government have met .with serious obstacles, especially in Bavar- ia, where the Government have refus- ed to disarm the semi-military organ- izations on the ground that they are necessary for protection against the Communists. With the silence of the II, F. A. leaders on the "open door" policy of Mr. Crerar, the subject may be said to be a closed one. In the increases of crimes by shoot- ing.
