Mien GemiMi ambiiRSudor at PnriK. regarding Ihe conditions on which France, tf sin* remained neutral in ihn war between Germany and Hu?'sia, was to guarantee her nentral-ity. I In an address yesterday French foreign mi n later, Stephen Plrhon. quoted the imUrnetionn from Hot hmnnu-Holhvasv in effect that Vrjnee would be requested t;> iurn over the fortresses of Tonl and Verdun to Germany for the duration of Ihe war with JliJM-Sia, if she decided io remain neutral). "Needless to Hay, Hjron Von Srhoen did not. trnnsinh. Die proposal to me,'' laid M. Vfvinni. :'Thh; spared me the huunDntlon. of hearing of the dishonorable bargain proposed, and spared himself Iho humiliation of hearing my reply.

Me a.^ked nie what, would bo the course of France In case of war between Germany and Ftussia. The qucHtion was a plain one and nndoubtndly the ambassador expected me to make one or the other of two answers, by which ho would have profited. Jlc doubtless thought that I would say: " 'In that case, sir, it is war.' in which case he would wall; out of my office. Immediately putting words of provocation to France, or else 1, overwhelmed by (he new� he brought ine, would betray weakness so thai he would be encouraged to make his dishonorable proposal, which a representative of France not only couUi not consider an instant, but could not even allow to be made to him. "What T did say to him was: 'France wi! be guided by her interests.' Von Schoon had nothing more to say," Parli, Mar. 4.-According to the Petit ParJslen Leon Jouhnux, secretary of the French Federation of Labor; J. H.

Cur- tis Why Jews Are Not Assimilated I 1 charge of its ad-new act -provides of a hospital disaccording to the TCdmonton. Alta, Mar. J .--The failure f>f the Provincial Hospital Act to accomplish results* has 'resulted in the Introduction of a new act at this* session by George P. Smith, provincial secretary, who has ministration. The-that. the. boundaries trict. can ho fixed choice of the residents living therein, lnntead of being coterminous with the boundaries of municipalities within which the hospital district is formed. The method of making the levy is aUo changed, *a hospital board having charge of the election, raising the levy and maintaining" the hospital instead of the machinery of the municipality being employed for these purposes as under the old act. Other bills which have been introduced by the government are the following: An act to place all municipalities ami local Improvement district* under a uniform type of government with the term "municipal district," unorganised municipalities to be administered by the government as formerly. An amendment to the Sales of Shares Act by repealing the amendment passed in 1917 by which the permission of the utilities commission was not required for the sale of railway stock in the province, or for the *ale of stock, negotiations for ths sale of which had begun prior ui the passing of the u*t.

I Before the Korunt audience on Sunday afternoon Rev. Mr. Curtis of the Christian ichurch paid a very high tribute to the part the Jews have Ukeu In the war, his subject, being "The Jews in the war." After tracing the history of the rise and fail of the Jewish nation, lie said that, of the Jews now In the world 10,000,DOo or 6S per cent, are affected by the war on one .side or other of the great conflict. He said there were r> til),000 in action The speaker then referred to some of the great men who are playing prominent parts in ihe world events of today, mentioning particularly Sir R (J chen. Lord Heading and I leivrv Morgonthau, I'.S. ambassador to Turkey. He declared that while the .leu* was merely tolerated, nevertheless he. was sought after, and in closing he read a poem to Britain written by ti Jew in which the nation without a homeland paid tribute to the success of the British in liberating the homeland of (he Jfiwi. In the discussion Louis Keel thanked H.ev. Mr. funis warmly tor hU words of appreciation of the Jew. He declared that the Jewish problem now agitates the Jew and the non-Jew alike ail over the world. Kven in IT. S. and (Treat Orit.ain, where greatest freedom is enjoyed there is a Jewish problem, more acute than In either Russia or Roumaiiia. He said the cause was that nowhere had the Jew a home where his individuality can take shape. "Let us hope," he said "that the day is not far distant when the Jew will be able to point with pride and say: "This is the land of my people." Another speaker declared the Jewish nation had no part in the war, and the Jews only ;as they were citizens of other countries were taking part. S. S. Dunham wanted to know why there should he a Jewish problem, why they should not be assimilated as peoples of other countries are as-sl-mllated. He was answered by Mr. Keel who stated that assimilation includes assimilation in religion, and if the Jew is assimilated jrou kill the Jew. Ifardie also spoke briefly declaring that the Jew had taken both a glorious and a despicable part in the war. for not only are they fighting with the allies but UMf ar� fighting aUo wirh the eueaiy.
