Ottawa, Mar. f.-^THht any arrests made under the provlalozu of the Military Soryi.eo coaventlon between Canadp aud the .United State*, otherwise known as the slackere treaty. Is lllegalais the statement here by members of the military service counr.ll. The convention haA not yet been formally ratified Great BrltMn or the United States, buMt la expected that It will be in the oontrM ot � short time.

Some.daya ago it was reported that several arrest* had been made In the west under the protlsloos of the treaity. The clauae of the treaty gorernlng Utlfl 1� as follows: "A];rierlcaas and' Canadians within the age limits who desire tp enter the mlUtary serrice at their own country most enlist or enroll, or mnet. leave Canada or the pnlted States, as the OBse may be, for \tbe purpdad of .mill t�ry service in tketr own oo'vntry be fore the esplratlon of sixty days after the date or ratttlcation, of this ounreu-tlou, it liable to military, service > In the oountry'in which, they are on said date; or.

People must be on their guard against a repition of the same latal .policy over a wider field, it is highly improbable, Mr. Henderson declared, that tho war can be ended by a decisive triumph. It nilRht end by a pi-ocoss of exhauatlou and that meant a cojj-timiauc.o ot war with ail its Uorrbrs with the destruction of human life and material until one or both sets of bnlligerentB made continuation imvos-sible. Such a Kpmlnallon would be n disaster ot the first magnitude to mankind. There remains, he said, a third alternative-a policy of conciliation through the combined forces of labor and socialism to secure a' real people's peace. That did not mean a surrender to the enemy or peace at .iny price, nor that the people are willing to condona German brutality or to leave Germany with all her power for mischief unimpaired. Destruction of Militarism - What- the policy ot oonciliatlpu-meant wkt the destruction ot nillltnr-isill not o*nly in Germany but everywhere. Mr. Henderson then cited tlie well known .war aims of the labor iwrty, including a league of nations. The speaker quoted a recent speech ot Phillip Scheidomann, the German majority Socialist loader, and articles In the Socialist Vorwaerta proving that there was a struggle in the contra! powers � between military caste and tho forces of democracy. "Tho people must help the forces of democracy in Germany to the utmost. The German policy toward Russia made. thM much moro remote. The people must^ convince the German people that such ruthless militarism would fasten permanently upon nations the awful burden of armament and enforced milj-taary service and that tho greater the Gorman battlefield the more remote was world peace. We must tell the German Social lets," Mr. HendersonVcontinued, "that wo have done our part. Whether the struggle Is to terminate soon or Is to be indefinitely prolonged depends largely upon bow soon tbev o'nn.n�-o-' duco a change ot mentality In lhelr-olnt Ik Von Hertling's intimation that Germany does not think ot reUinlug Belgium, together with tho diancellor's references to the papal note and to tho utlliealion of Belgium as a jumping-off ground tor Germany's enemies. Lord Uinsdowne admits that when re*d in the light of other German utterances this leads to the inference that the chancellbr contemplated tho imposition upon Bel-glum ot terms whicli would Interfere with her independence, but he points out that the material passage in the papal note upon which Von Hertling apparently relies Insists that Germany evacuate n3elgiiun and guarantee ber full political, military and economic independence, adding that it such a guaranteu is really what the chancellor requires It should not be difficult to satisfy him, Continuation of Dialogue The letter contlnuou: "Le't us hope that iu tho course of the dialogue which will tloubtloas bo continued, he will toll us whether this la his meaning or whether wholly different designs, not hinted at in the ......
