Speaking at Dudley, Sir George spoke of meeting Lord Kitchener, when the first Canadian division was inspected by the King on Salisbury Plain, and added; "Kitchener told me at that time a good deal about the unpreparedness of thia country for war. He said the government had shown greal courage' I'.n taking up the GerfllSh challenge: in fact, he doubted if they realize:! themselves how much courage they had shown.

Some reductions' were advocated in wdr time excess profits taxes "anJ^the present tax on retail sales, the president thought, could be dispensed with entirely. The recommendations regarding labor were general, but the president called attention to the need for a partnership between capital and labor and a genuine "democratization ot industry." i On tariff revision tbA-preaident said (the I'nited States should have the means for properly protecting itsei: when there w^as' danger ot discrimination agataat It by foreign nations. "Though we are as far .aa possible from desiring to enter upon a course ot retaliatibn," he eaid, "wia mu|t fraakly face the fact that hostile legia-.latto^t �y kther nation* ia not. beyond the range ^f possibility and that it may hav^to be met by count�r-legl*lat}on.

What tfae^ people are inclined to ask is whether, if 'Viscount French may put his case' forward so  publ-cly, others are not to be allowed t-O'-do in^ewise, and if so, are we not in tor R bitter and painful season of wrang-llnfe'.
