The Balkan states have found a field of expression for their militancy, but countries which have not this vent ate expending their energies in warlike preparations. The small states are Involved equally with the greater powers, and today France, Germany, Aus^ tria, Russia, Belgium, and Switzerland are taking serious count of their military preparedness. Belgium is raising her army from a war footing of 100,000 to 150,000 men. Baron de Broqueville, the Belgian Minister of War, in concluding a speech on this subject before the Belgian chamber, urged that the army ;increase be voted as quickly as possible, for the sake of "Belgian security and honc(r." The country lives under the sUadows of the great states, the minister declared, and Belgium must put forth great exertions to protect lier frontiers, should her neighboring powers fall upon each other. The most Important newspapers of SwitzerlPnd are publishing the official notice,7 of the government warn-r ing Swiss citizens residing in European countries to hold themselves in readiness to return immediateiy in the event of war, and Swiss living in the United States and Canada have been requested to stand ready to come back to Switzerland on call. Thd Swiss Republic, under its present military organization, couldpui into the field 100,000 men in twentyi-four hours, and 200,000 in forty-eight hours. One-third of the government's revenues are spent, on military' ob-; jeots. .In case of supreme necessity, the 1 government .expects to bo-able to place 275,000 men under araifi wlthini a' week; � ' :�. -..r. - The French cabinet has adopted a. mieasure extending tha. term of .-.service in the atmy'. from two to three years ; this adds something over 200,r., 000 men to the peace footing of the army. "Every Frenchmfan," said  M.. Gheron, official analysist of the ap-, propriations committee of the Chamber .o! Deputies, in a recent address, f-'naust at the present moment fix his attention upon the military activity on the other side of the frontier." He then' bompsired Germany's expenditures on her army with the expendi-tares of. France during the past ten years. The cost of the German army had augmented constantly. imtU now it was double that of France. Next year; under the new German law, the outlay on the army would be $100,-000,000 more than that of France.- Thp new German military bill will add 84,000 recruits to the army, giving a total of 806,000 men, excluding offlcers. Compared to this, France, incluHing the , latest numerical increase, has a totdli of 578,783 men in her army oh a peace footing, excluding oS5�ers;  O ?

H. A. Allison wired: "Oppose passing of Farm Machinery Bill strenuously, will work great hardships on farmers, as implement agents will require to sell absolutely for cash, with, no protection on goods sold on time." ' C. lUcClenaghan telegraphed: "It present Machinery Bill becomes operative, will necessitate calling off of travellers and canoelllng contracts with local agents, and aelllBg goods for cash only, which will be great hardship to farmers. Oppose) it all' you can." Th� Lethbridge-Weyburn Oo. presented a rather milder request, a�: follows: "Kindly oppose implement bill,. as It win put us out of huslnee* altogether with travellers and local ag' ents." This attempt to stir up sympathy on behalf of the local agents for implement firms was called off before it was launcihed, by a speech from tlie Minister-of Agriculture in the House, In moving the -bill, when he said that the government did not- want to injure the implement firms, or agenti, bub they did want to protect the farmer, and it was not from local ag- ' thing to do with an early election i'n'v;'',"' 'fj oonneotlon with the Public -Works ^de-i ipartment;: a good- deal 'earlier'''ti'an%';'. last year.
