Pessimism abroad is evidently increasing rather than decreasing and the debris of high hopes is strewn (broadcast irom the bay of Biscay to the Russian littoral. Whereas," only a� short time ago, a general business revival was confidently expected at the end of tVie war in the Balkans and a world-wide prosperity was produced on all sides, business men and financiers now see in the last increase in the armament in Europe, conse(|uence of the Kaiser's announcement, and the tremendous increase in taxation which must follow, a blow which may well kill tlie looked for return of prosperity. The comparative failure of the^Hrus-sian loan is an eloquent indication of public sentiment in Germany. All over' Europe, in fact, cash is hiding again in secret hoards, discounts ace bardcning, loans are bsjng called in and banl^ers, financiers and business men gbncrally are curtailing their committments, and for ait this the main blow that has been struck against prosperity it is felt liere that there Is no visible reason beyond the amtiition of the German Emperor, He has declared in public speech that in this year, 1913, Germany faces the greatest crisis .she bas known since 1871.

Mrs. Mahaffy then road in a very lympathetic manner, a paper wri.Uen by a'memher oti the Carnnangay Institute entitled, , "The Influence ot Homo EuYironmenit." The' writer ot the paper- had .expended .caretuf thought in dealing -with this subject; The program for the next mcotlag pect of a sewerage? system being, installed in Taber, it was: as unanimously agreed that steps must be taken at once to clean up the town, thereby lessening, as far as lies in the power of.,tho citizens at-present, the likelihood of tlie outbreak of a serious epidemic of disease. An epidemic which might cost many lives will surely break out it the town is jiUowed to remain in its present filthy state, a perfect breeding place for every kind of disease germ, never to mention the doath->bearing fly which will soon be swarming. everywhere once more. . ^ .\fter much discussion a committee was appointed "to meet, discuss and devise, it possible, some practicable Scheme to be presented to- the Taber Council, whereby the town may be brought, without delay, to a more i-Sanitary, 'tidy and attractive state than at present. The personnel of this civic conrmittee is as follows : Mes-dames Cook,' Hamman, Tainter, Mahaffy,. Sernett, McColl, Williams, Powell, Blue; MeAHister and Miss, iPaterson. This: commiittee may wait upon the council � with a practicable scheme, if same can be evolved, and present it, not in any spirit of meddling, but in an earnest endeavor to aid in; bringing Taber to that state when it may be truthfully advertised as one of the best and most attractive cibies in Alberta. cries of intoxicated unreasonable patriotism were heard. Now, however, we begin to see the reverso ot the medal. From T'rance it was news that general labor federation is or-ganiziinB; a vast agitation against the proposal for a return to three years' service in the army, and now, mixed with cheers for'the tri-color, is heard the rumbling threat ot a tscneral strike if the three years' proposal becomes law. In Germany too, the alleged enthusiasm begins to show tlii-cadbari,'. The government's detertirination to plunge into a fresh competition of armaments brings forth only groans from jo\irnals representing tho fman-cial, commercial and propertied elements. The Frankfurter ZeitunK says: "When we hear these gigantic (ig-uics we must take our lieads in our hands and ask if in all conscience they can really be tho result ot serious consideration. One is rather forced to the conclusion that they are the product of a veritable state of armament's drunkenness, that the government has been stampeded by a process ot suggestion into underwriting heedlessly all the demands of the military men, without giving a second's thought to other ways or means." The Boersen Courier, the organ of the stock exchange, says : "One imposes 'a tax ot this sort only in limes of the gravest need, when it is urgent to act quickly because the incmy is at the gates, and the neces-city for national sacrifice is imperative. In the times ot peace amid which we arc, after all, still living,' one should avoid evoking extremes which can easily awaken the impression that they are the last sheet anchor of a financially impoverislied country," There is, of course, a popular outcry in England on the fiue-Hlion of the army and navy, and of still more importance is the fact that the blow struck at returning prosperity has been felt no less severely here than Emperor William has struck a bloSvjon the.continent, but evidence of gov-at German commerce as severe as ernmental knowledge of what is do-that which has fallen on tlie, rest of � ihg in Germany has been confined so Europe. He may make Germany dominate Europe from a military viewpoint and tlius enforce German comniL-rcial supremacy, but it is agreed, that many years must elapse before Germany-herself will be, able to recover and that her supremacy will be that of a nation with its credit severely strained over countries still ni'ore severely crippled. Caused a .Scramble 'rhe increase in the German war force has been followed by a grand patriotic scramble ot the countries qt Europe, to compete in the increase ot armaments. For a fe^y days only the far to the pronunciamento by the homo secretary against foreign airships fiying over England or approaching the English coast. Mr. Mc-Kenna's document was severely lengthy a,nd rich in details of restricted and unrestricted areas, but it failed to provi(i|e any means for enforcing the rules' laid down, and has so far only provoked a fresh outburst ot laughter against men who, while fiercely objuratorV on woman suffrage, has been subdued by militants to. the point, of, daily window smashing and other lawbreakers from the prisons.

I-Tis wife died some twelve years ago, leaving the two girls, Cicely, now. aged 17 And Mabel aged 15.

Several efforts have been made to have the eldest girl placed In^ an institution of some kind, hut the efforts have hitherto failed.

CROWN PRINCE IS RESTORED TO FAVOR Berlin, March 10.-The Crown Prince has at last apparently been restored to his imperial father's favor. The Tageblatt, announces that the prlncc- will leave; his command of the Hussars at Danzig, and return -to Berlin as commander of another regi-nwnt here, the- Grenadier Guards. This regiment is classed as one of the cracks, and may be said' to come first after the two so-called foot guard regiments. � . The ^b'&nge will be especially ap- plauded by the peopjle of Berlin with whom the Crown Prince a'nd Princess are exceedingly popular. It is now more than two years since the Prince took command of the Deatn's Head Hussars at Danzig. This command, which has learned officers, has always been looked upon by the pri vate citizens,: and- in particular hy the Berlin people, as the greatest regi ment in the GeTman army.
