The Council comprises eight members. Four represent the principal Allied Brit- ain.

In' which one by uue the members of the late Board ot Com- merce have bid goodbye to it is strongly redolent of the rats who left the sinking ship. The last one to out of the wreck Is Mr; Mur- dock and bis is the most dramatic1 departure of the three in "the charges he has made which reflect on the Gov- ernment. These are charges of such 'a nature as to demand Investigation and contradiction, it the public is not lo be avowed to remain In the ballet, which the charges convey, that It was hoodwinked in the forming of the Board, which, in so many words, was a camouflage of what it was Intended to he, Charges of the kind made by ex- CommiEsioner Murdock have a habit ot sticking. There Is the greater likelihood In the present ones In the fact that so far as effecting any changes' ih'the way ot reducing prices, "the public will be hard pressed to re- call any special hene5t which the Board of Commerce obtained, parti- cularly in the on again' oft again policy In regard to sugar. So far as the actual working of the Board went It appears to have been inclined to harass and ..interfere with 'the small fry In the shape ol the retail merchant and to leave the big fellow alone. At leaot this was the impression created. On the top of the'cbarge ot Mr. JIurdbck th'at the Board was created to protect tbe profiteering friends of the Government. The ac- cusations cannot be allowed to pass unchallenged. It Is not only the charges made by the last of tbe Commissioners on the Board of Commerce that the public is concerned with. If everything he says Is true there cannot be the just resentment of. the people that they have been, made fools 'of; there Is also the unnecessary expenses to which the'country Has'liiori' put'in the creation of the Board lo ostensibly perform duties which, interpreting Mr. Murdock, it was never intended to do, and, in which it was thwarted all along when it proceeded to endeavor to do. The whole thing, If the facts are as stated, constitutes a grave ac- cusation which needs clearing up. It is satisfactory to find that all the cor- respondence is being made public. Arrow?

What is the origin of How the League- of Nations has al- ready functioned In proving its utility Is furnished by the role it has play- ed in the case ot the Saar Valley. Here it was pointed out by Sir Her- bert Ames the Saar Basin lies be- tween France and Germany, with a population. ot people engaged maiiily In the production of coal. France, whose coal areas had been devastated during the German occupa- tion, demanded control pf this sup- ply, which was absolutely nei-ossary for her industrial rebuilding. But to have placed 700.005 Germans under the control of France would have been to, have incited a war of revenge, On the other hand, to havo left the coal area under the control .of Germany, would have rendered the. French sup- CANADA AND THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS An interesting statement with re- gard to the League of Nations was that made last week in the House by Sir Herbert Ames, Financial Director of the Secretariat of the League. He mentioned that when nine months ago he went overseas to accept the position he knew littio of the work and of the conditions under which It was to be carried out. He believed in the ideals of the League, and as a Canadian was proud of Canada's prompt decision to enter the League, but his decision was Influenced by faith rather than by sight. He was at his place however after nine months. In which he had gained an Inner light by actual experience as to what the League stood for in, as no confessed, an altogether dltfcren attitude of mind. The League or Na lions he declared is no longer dream; It is a reality; it has being it has, [one-. It has organs; i functions. The League of Kationa was official- ly born on January 10th. 1920, on ;-which date the Treaty of Peace came into force. Sir Herbert Ames was only recapitulating interesting history when he elated that during the last five months 24 of the 'i'i original sig- natories nave duly ratified the Treaty. Th6 matter Is still In douM in respect of China, Equador, and the Hcdlas, al- though It seems probable that China by accepting the Austrian Treaty will become a member of Ihe League of Nations. Only five out of the forty- flvo possible original members have definitely abstained from entering the Ixsague. These are the States. Cuba, HayII. Honduras, Nicaragua, Thua the League of Nations already contains thlrty-soven States. Already thirty-seven rowers with a total popu- lation of people fiAro, join- ed the League.

It was necessary, therefore, to operate the area with justice to both contending parties. The League of Nations. Couu- cll at its first meeting set up a Com- mission to administer the Saar. Basin, In accordance with the- terms laid down in the Treaty. This Commis- sion has for Canadians a peculiar in- terest, In that one ot the most active and successful members ot the Com- mission is the well known ex-mayor ot Winnipeg, Mr. R. D. WauKbjj Another example 61 a specific task enjoined by the Treaty is the govern- ment of the free city of Dan Lzic. Here aga'n, a difficult problem faced the makers' of peace. Access to the Baltic Sea is a necessity to Poland, in order to engage iu foreign commerce, but this access could only be secured, by detaching a port, formerly German, and making it available for Polish commerce. To have given Dantzic to Poland, or .to have left Dantzic in the control of Germany, would have precipitated another war. Dantzic has, bean placed under ths authority of the League of Nations. TUs Council has appointed Sir Regi- nald Tower, a British administrator who distinguished himself In South Ajnerica as High Commissioner, with instructions to draw up a constitution, fo hold popular elections, and In the capacity of administrator and arbiter to establish settled conditions of gov- ernment, on terms that will be just lo all. This he has done under the guar- antee of the League ot Nations. .The free city of Dantzic will make treaties with Qermnny and with Poland, and the League of Nations will see to it ANSWERS 1.
