The people there aro strug- gling under a Kriovoui load. They do not believe in tho poverty pleaded by Germany, and knowing tho Teuton no uno else can. France admits that tho Gem-ail State Is for liiu present poor, but the largo classes of tho Ger- man people aro not.

The Germans at the outbreak of the war gave to the world what has become to be a cjassic phrase, in the "scrap of in tho spirit they the sanctity of treaties, and with the ease with which they violat- ed them in the ruthless inarch through Belgium. Tho Teuton once is the Teuton still in the way he re- gards the obligations imposed by the Treaty of Versailles in the matter of reparations and disarmaments. The patience, consideration, and long-suf- fering of the Allies, in the delay to force the Germans to make good what has been imposed on .them, have only tended to harden their hearts and to make obstinacy more obstinate in fulfilling their rightful obligations. Germany in the negotiations with the Allies has come to them not in tho role of a defeated nation, but a nation which came to an arrangement with the Allies for the cessation of hostil- ities. The country was spared the show of the actual fact of defeat, in that a victorious enemy had not mirched through it and invested its capital. To this day, therefore, in spirit at least, Germany does not ac- cept the role of a defeated and humil- iated nation. The spirit which animates Germany, which is part of the nature of the arrogant and self-suiBctent Teuton, ia exemplified in the role she is play- ing in regard to the payment of the indemnity imposed on her by agree- ment among the Allies at the last Con- ference of Paris. Name a fixed sum so that >we can look around for means whereby to meet it was her i-lca. thus playing for delay and trusting to disagreement among the Allies. The sum has been named, with the period for payment, and now with crocodile tears Germany whines that her people cannot be taxed any furth- er for means wherewith to foot the bill, when these very people are the lowest taxed of all the nations who took part ia the war, and who are now bearing the burdens of the war in a measure of taxation of which the German people have not 'been called on to bear. Now we have a spectacle, which would be grotesque and amus- ing were it not for its seriousness, in the counter-proposals made by Ger- many- to pay the' meagre sum of thir- ty billion gold marks, or about seven and a half billions of dollars, a email fraction of the bill presented to her. It requires a Teuton intelligence to appreciate the nature of the request. The history of the reparations' ne- gotiations between the Allies and Ger- many showed that it was a very deli- cate question as between Great Brit- ain and France, on which practically hinged the friendship between the two nations in what constitutes the en- tente cordiale, in the feeling that Bri- tain was inclined to back down. The woes inflicted on France by Germany can only be intimately known and felt by the people of France. The ex- tent of these cannot he realized by those in Canada, or for the matter ol that even by Great Britain, in that the experiences France went through in the war, bands of were experiences which she alone with Belgium shared, and France shared these even more severely than Belgium. France today suffers, and, with the suffering, realizes the extent of the devastation wrought on her, in the possession of her richest areaa during the war by the enemy. The devastation was as thorough as it was cruel and wanton. Where smiling orchards and vineyards stood, where the fields of golden grain bowed their beads to the passing breezes, where the woods grew prolific, piles of rub- bish ware left by the enemy to mark and to serve aa remembrance of his Late and fury. Mines which gave France its wealth were deliberately flooded, factories torn and pillaged, ancient monuments and historic build- ings destroyed and wrecked, and vill- ages and thriving towns laid low by the marauding invader. Who can blame France .when she demands and heavy payments so that may restore the wealth and the glories of a nation! Who can deny France a proper sympathy when she bfti been -mocked at, and is now mocked at, by Germany, In the evas- ion, fraud, and subterfuge she is pur- In denying the making good of what no true Frenchman can readily forget and readily, forgive. i fa France today, with the heaviest 1 aires, to the enormous schemes they are launching, tho large dividends they have been earning, and the huge capitals they are raising.

Premier Briand's newspaper, the Exclaire, says: "France hitherto has shown the utmost patience, and if Germany compels her to do so, she will use her strength remorselessly in full agreement with her allies." The Petit Parisien, which has the widest circulation of any Paris news- paper says: "Faced with the German proposals, which insult the misery of the populations of our devastated regions and which mock all the allies, there is not a single one of our young soldiers, who, if the nation should require .it, will not readily go and mount guard iu the Ruhr region." Jacques Rainville, the widely known writer on foreign topics, says in L'Action Francaise: "It is the good fortune of France always to be able to count upon the clumsiness of the ation conference in London will prove ot sreat interest, and the Teuton will be exposed in his true guile. If the opinion prevkraaly expressed by Dr. Walter Simons, the German Foreign Minister, is a guide to the spirit which animates the German representatives now in London, of 'whom he is one, nothing of a hopeful nature in a will- ing settlement, as the AUles desire, to the full extent' of tha indemnity im- posed can be expected. What the Ger- man Minister said may be German bluff, but his words are worth record- ing. Speaking in Karlsruhe, a week or so ago, he is quoted as saying, "If we do not accept the Paris decisions, measures looking to the breaking up of the Empire will come into force, but any attack from the outside on the constitution of the Empire, I gath- er from my tour of south Germany, would meet with the unanimous re. slstance ot the whole people. "I am going to he de- clared, "feeling that the idea of the inviolability ot the Empire cannot be' torn from the hearts of the Ger- man people as a With the attitude taken by Ger- many, it cannot be said that peace has been already established. What will happen should Germany prove recalcitrant in London hut akeady become matters of surmise and com- ment. It Is generally believed, we read, ia Paris that what is needed is a show of force by the Allies before the Germans will give their assent, which is necessary to the working of the Allied plan. That IB why states- men and the press are urging upon M. Briand to pay the greatest attention to the matter of penalties. While the Allies have no right to take military steps to force Germany to agree to a plan which goes outside the Treaty, as the old saying goes, there is more than one way to kill a cat.. Should the Germans in London give a refusal to meet the Allied figures the Allies could then notify them of some simi- lar or larger amount, to be paid with iu the treaty time limit of 30 years, and theu could tako military steps on that basis. The French Press is paying a great deal of attention to the matter of penalties, and there is much specula- tion about what England and France should do that the English arc agreed, in case of need, to seize the customs ol "a big German port" (presumably Debate Once More Nearly Peters Out Only About 30 in House When Pius Michaud Saves it from Sadden Death OTTAWA, March speech by Dr. Michael Clark of Red Deer and eading debater of the National Pro- gressive party, today awakened tho louso discussion on the address to new energy.
