This great Galician fortress once before in Russian hands, is no momentarily expected to fall to the onslaughts again. This time it wil be a disastrous defeat for the Austri ling of which wo refuse to believe 10 United Slates is capable.'" The Outlook very properly recalls ho it Is that Is uttering these words. 'It Is the Foreign Minister of the ountry which has deliberately mur- ered American citizens on the high HUB. In merchantmen whose peaceable talus was indisputable. It is the For- tgn Minister of the nation which umr- erert tho women and children on tho Lusltauia by a torpedo sent without from a submarine. It is the 'orelgn Minister of tha nation which as liow sent another submarine, a ear after that murder, without uiak- ng reparation for it or even apology or it, and without in tho least aban- oning her pretensions at being in the ight in thus committing murder; has emanded and received for her cxtraor- inary consideration; and now insists hat the United States shall prevent Germany's enemies from doing to this ugitive blockade-runner, designed to avoid tho law search and seizure, rhat Germany did in cold blood to the peaceful non-fugitive Lusitania. The Outlook's reply to Von Jagow s absolutely unanswerable. It simply makes Germany look ridiculous. Im agine the nation that countenanced the sinking of the Lusitania protesting against similar treatment for the Deutschland. Is it not a joke?

MAKES-A FOOL OF GERMANY In an interview, which had every appearance of being legitimate, that Wm. Bavsru known Am- erican correspondent had with Herr 'Van Jagow, German Minister of For- eign Affairs, Von Jagow made this re- mark concerning the Deutschland, the German submarine merchantman: "To allow the attack without warning up- on an unarmed fragile boat, with the lives .ot the. crew at the. mercy a single shot, that is something of which we refuse to believe tie United States la capable." York Outlook flags ths Germans for taking such an attitude. "The practice of sinking merchant ves- sels and drowning without warning the non-combatants aboard them is a Ger- man custom and has received the sanc- tion of the German points out the Outlook. How should the Deutschland be treated? Practically as a pirate, in the view of the Outlook. It says: "Now, however, the Germans have sent across the seas a boat, the Deutschland, which Herr Von Jagow de- scribes as' being 'as fragile as an egg- shell." Although she is a submarine, she purports to be a merchantman, and is so Judged to. be by the United States Department of State. And yet she is not an ordinary merchantman. She is built, not to'sail the seas openly and to submit, as-, other merchantmen are expected to submit, to Tisit, search and seizure; but stie is especially de- Signed to search and seizure, to dive, to in other words, to invite the penalty of attack which, under the law, is incur- red by every merchantman that at tempts to escape lawful visit, search and seizure. "To sink such a boat on sight Herr Von Jagow describes as 'cowardly, das- and, in case the .cruisers of the Allies do so, he expects the GOT eminent of the United States 'to voice the energetic protest of civilization and humanity.' 'We claim says Herr Von Jagow, 'for this new type of merchant man save that she is entitled to be hailed, visited, and the 'crew placed in safety before sho Is precise rights which have been insistei upon for every other merchant ship b> four-Government. 1 "'If, after she is hailed, she at tempts to escape, she does so at he own risk, and may properly be attack rid and sunk.

THE NECESSITY FOR THRIFT (Toronto The Minister of Finance announces that a second domestic loan for war purposes will be issued early in the [all. Are the Canadian people saving their money to invest in the loan, or are they squandering their resources in the confident belief that the capital- ists of the United States will eagerly bid for a large part of the issue? There are few signs of thrift and re- trenchment in the cities of the Do- minion. Every holiday sees record- breaking crowds at the various places of outdoor entertainment. There are no evidences of economy in dress. If the young women of the Dominion are doing any "making ovar" they are dis- playing skill little short of genius in concealing it. There are more shiuy new motor cars on the streets of onto this summer than were ever seen before. The manufacturers of the cars will doubtless have a comfortable surplus to invest in war bonds, bnt the high cost of gasoline will keep tile users from aiding Sir Thomas White to provide food and munitions for Can- ida's army overseas. The comfortable optimist who be- lieves that somehow or other the Gov- ernment will obtain the sixteen mil- lion dollars a month that must be bor- rowed to meet the country's war ex- penditures should pay heed to the way in the German uoncombatant stands behind the men in the trenches. A correspondent of The New York (CONTINUKp FROM 1'AQK) World, cabling from Berlin, says: r a servof 'Gold for iron' is the slogan of the atriot, It was the late General Ton Moltke who, in 1913, when he was Chief of the General Staff, outlined with great exactness and an entire absence of moral scruples the procedure which Germany intended to follow -when the time came for the great war. At that time he said, as was .recorded at the time in the French diplomatic cor- respondence: "The commonplaces as to the re- sponsibility of the aggressor must be disregarded. When war has become necessary it must be waged by rang- ng all the chances on one's own side. We must forestall our prin- cipal adversary immediately there are nine chances in ten that we are going to have war, and we must begin war without waiting, in order brutally to crush air resistance." "Meat Takes Another familiar head- line in your daily newspaper. But why worry about the cost of something you don't need? The most expensive foods are generally the least nutritious.

More and more the spirit f the German people, :their selt-sacri- ce and the conditions they have con- onted, tend to recall the days and pirit of the time Frederick the reat. A century ago, during tho greal .ruggle with Napoleon, the Germai icople gave their plate and jewellery o the State to be melted.
