Thoro are 85G telephones In service Kelalions Be- hvcen Teachers and Parents A'fair for LcthbrMgel ALIENS AND BRITISH JUSTICE Dealing with aliens In general in Canada, Commissioner Perry In his report stated that these people, as body, have shown little the justice and fair treatment meteE out to them by the people of this conn try. He went on to say that they hai ehowc themselves ready to follow cvm support extremists who play upoi their Ignorance and appeal lo -the! natural prejudices and sympathy will the Central Powers., Bolshevism find keenly Intefeated. a fertile ground among them aud It i assiduously cultivated by the arden sgitator. When Commissioner Perry's state Kent is considered, it cannot but com borne to us that it is not so mucH a indictment of the foreigners In ou midst as a failing oft the part of on selves to make them realize what Br ttah justice stands for. These peopl have been left too much In the bane of.-agitators who use them for the mm ends, and there has been nolhln in the way of a coutter propagand of education to enlighten them as 1 irhit British justice is and bow the benefit by it in the new land In whic they hare come to reside. These foreigners come to ns with state ot mind, with settle opinions and convictions in regard 'governments and justice which it ha their lot to live under. The fixed prejudices, and from the 'experience are Inclined to judge 'governments ali.lte arid to look on ju ,tlce as It has become familiar to the in their native countries. Such a se tied state of mind and such fixed co 'vlctions are pliable material whli the makers of mischief find only I .plastic for mouding it [to.believe a they wish. What British justice is and wh freedom under the. British .flag mean many of the aliens in Canida bave no true Idea, because In very many cases their full signification has not been brought home to them. They 'have lacked the necessary education, the missionary work in this direction has not by any means been so ercerl getlc as it might have been. Too often, again, foreigners take a mistaken new of British Jus- 'tice and of the lengths to which Brit- ish freedom entitles them lo go. They are, in a vague sense of what British toleration means, too often in the habit of Interpreting It too liberally and con- founding liberty with license. There in an exaggerated idea ot British free dom and justice given them by agitators to drive them to and co lo become tools In their hands in [he way of creating and fostering -unrest. There Is great, need of education among the aliens ot Canada In what constitutes British Justice and free- dom. There is much work to remove _ preconceived ideas of things as they have been accustomed to regard them In the land they have lived in. There further the need of bringing home .to them eiaclly what British rule means In comparison Ip; the rule of the Central Powers. There Is the need of giving them a thorough under- standing lhat British Ilulc allows them a far greater scope of liberty than they have previously enjoyed, but .it same 11 mo Is jealous thai those lihftrtifis should npf lift In the Iruo meaning of whal lirillsh jus- tice conveys.

The total loss of shipping due to war was approximately fifteen mil lion tons and of this Great Britain had suffered to the extent of tons. The total payments for ships to the present date amounted to said Mr. Ballanlyne, and during the war contracts had been let at ?180 a toJ for the larger vessels ranging lo a ton for Ihe lake size.
