At tho opening of tho social the chairman. Mr. Joseph Miller (who has two sons that voluntarily went with tho first contingent in 1914) spoke ns follows: "Ladies and gentlemen, before stnrt-iiig our program tonight. I would like to say a few words to you. On behalf of Jlrs. Linning I extend to you all a hearty woIcOmo and I hope you wlUJ make yourselves at homo and enjoy yourselves. No doubt you all know this is a social and dance to welcome home Pte. Wm. Linning, who loft n good and happy homo, willingly and voluntarily to do his little bit in Franco and Flanders to save our mothers, wives, daughters and sweethearts from the atrocities and degradations which tho Boast of Berlin and those of the German higher command have heaped on the poor Belgians and Serbians. I believe you will be all with me tonight In giving honor to Pte. Wm. Linning and our brave men, a few of whom I see around me here tonight, who have sacrificed so much on our behalf. Tonight the British army is still undefeated, its spirit Is undiminished, with its back to tho wall and its face to the foe." 1 don't see why we should feel downhearted about the result of tliis struggle: No Goriuan wil lever pass the tired British troops to wreak his infamous will on British homes- He will get there only over their dead bodies. Are we who begot them and bore them less faithful and brave than our sons? This time ot restless uneasiness and suspense is felt by those who are notj engaged upon work directly helpful to the prosecution of the war; for them it is a hideous hour of almost complete idleness in which they have time to envisage something of the horror that would ensue should disaster befall, which they are doing nothing to avert. I do not know that anyone on bur side ever supposed there was or ever would be reason to despair. If we could multiply AVatorioo by one hundred, the position ton-ay would be the -same as it was at noon at Waterloo one hundred and three years ago. Provided we can stand the hammering without breaking there is no reason ^ ^ to despair. I know'Toch is putting in \ ^ his reserves, bocaiiee Sir Douglas j Halg said so. America is marching to th'j battlefield because President Wilson has said so. T don't know whether we can stand the hammering without breaking, before sufficient reinforcements arrive, but if human beings can the present British armv will. "The German high command has promised that this battle will be the decisive last battle of the war. It will be it we win; if wo lose it, there will be others and for that fact the German people are not prepared. Financially Austria is a sucked orange, Germany is in a scarcely better position. Both are hungry and both arc bled white. Not all the grain lands aud fields of Rumania, the iron fields of France and the corn fields of the Ukraine can avail to save Prussian militarism. It's manpower is pinned to tlic west, while the British navy has the mastery ot the seas and has freedom to bring over to Europe the inex-haustable supplies of men and munitions of war that America is placing at I the services ot civilization. -Ml honor to our brave men who are fighting, all honor to those who have fought, done their bit and unfortunately been disabled, but let us give a silent toast to those who have given up their lives, both on land and aea tor the cause ot humanity.

DOUGLAS DEAD, New York. .Juno 25.-Ur. .lames Douglas, for iniiny;, years proHident, and lately chairman of the board of directors of Phelps Dodge and Company,'copper iiiinu owners, died at hie homo hero today, u^od 81 years. iCanadian Courier.) A lot of people wait until they are dead to be appreciated. Other people Insist upon being appreciated while on earth. The late John Ross Robertson, founder and proprietor of the Toronto Evening Telegram, belonged to neither of these categories. He did what he set out to do, much of it in the interests ot other people, got his reward of gratitude without asking for it and would have kept on doing what he did whether he was appreciated or not because he believed in being benevolent, in having his own way, in being himself-and at that one of the most uncommon, unconventional and uncontrollable ot men. Once upon a time when he started the paper that preceded the Toronto Telegram he sold the papers himself and carried the coppers to the bank in a patent pall every day. No man every combined the ethics of* the penny and the bigness of benevolence better than .John Ross Robertson. His paper, the Telegram, represents tho power ot a cent; the fact that It a mistress wants a maid or a man a job or an owner a lost article, there are so many chances In so many that what is wanted may be got at a cent a word on one of the five or six pages ot liners that make the front door to the oddest great newspaper In Canada. Wise writers talk about publishers who understand this newfangled thing known as mass psychology. They say NortUcllffe has that bump in an ultimate iegree. Well, when Robertson started the Telegram mass psychology was like appendicitis-It �^vaB there, but nobody knew anything about it. Tho Telegram has been a good example ot how a penny wise, idea can becom� hlg enough to dominate a big oliy. There have been times when the Mayor's office was an annex to the head office ot tho Telegram, because the near to a hundred thousan* people who bought the Telegram represented enough votes one way, but as a rule not another, to put aw man in the Mayor's chair that the boss ot the Telegram wanted. With that kind of paper tho owner could carry almost any program he wanted Inside his own constituency. The Telegram has never pretended to have more than a dribble of circulation outside of Toronto. Therefore whatever the Telegram told Toronto it wanted, Toronto might be counted on to want whether it suited the rest of tho country or not. And as a rule ihuro was no other part of the country to bo considered. The Telegram could whack it Liberal Government or i a Conservative opposUltin or a Union Oovornmont with absolute Impunity, because It had a constituency of opinion and sentimontiiwhich it had carved out for Itself. Once upon a time that organized constituency worked out into an un-conscIouB but iniperishablo monument to Uobortson. The Homo Sick Children is one ot tho finest benevolences in the world. It, was made possible by the Telegram, which was sometimes the house organ of the Sick Children's Home. The Telegram also originated the Landmarks of Toronto, a series of papers written by the owner to trace what he know ot the old city that was evol"ing a new one. "With a fresh black Panatella In his teeth," says a recent writer, "the proprietor of tho Telegram sticks his 'thumbs in his waistcoat and remembers that on yonder corner, now a hole in the ground full ot teams and picks and shovels, there once was a family by the name of X-, a grand- aunt of somebody, in which was mar rled to the half-brother 6t the man whose uncle was chief of police in the year that the old brewery was pulled down to make room for an orphan's home, which would be somewhere about half-way between the year that Mackenzie's rebels marched to Montgomery's Tavern and the year that Col. Denison's father originated tho militia ot Toronto." What Robertson has been able to do by way of historical pictures, of which he has accumulated a remarkable collection, arose out ot tho Land- marliii. What lio did to make himself tho apex of the .Musonic Order in Aiii-orica and to furl her tlio interests oi' theDrango Order, was as natural to l:im as tho Tolcurain or LaiulmarK.-; or the Sick Cliildron'a Home. In his long, sell'-centrod career ho once re-tu.scd a siciKitorKliip. once a knighthood and once a public funeral when he miglit have had a procession that would have made an Orange walk in the city of Toronto look like a very small thing. Now lliat he is gone wi'. remember Robertson as one of thb best character.s ot journalism in a class with Horace Greeley, Charles Dana and Gordon Bennett, men who founded bigger newspapers than tlio Toronto Telegram, but none with a more distinct character or more un-mlstakablo originality.
