The necessity of trust und confid- ence between the two groat Angio- Saion races Is Imperative for the peace of the world, and there is no letter mission than that of inculcat- ing the same and removing idle sus- picions that are unworthily aroused. Speaking nt the Pilgrim's dinner in Ken- Tort, Sir 'Auckland Geddes gave an emphatic denial to the report cir- culated that Great Britain was seeking to monopolize the fuel oil supply of the world. He place'd tho position, of His detractors of Britain's intentions in a (rue light when he said "If you look closely yon, will find my Gov- ernment trying to pour oil on the troubled waters ot Europe, and you find onlookers who seize the- oil as it is poured nnd throw it on the fires, ot anti-British feeling hero. "I .realize that traditional hatreds and ancient grudges die hard. 1 think Lean make full allowances for these things, but f do plead with each and i all to realize that if they have oi! to pour they will better serve tlielr day arid generation by selecting troubled waters to receive their liba- tion and avoiding smouldering fires." Jleferring to'the charge of seeking to establish a monopoly in fuel oil the British Ambassador after, referr- ing to reports "in some magazine thai Britain has acquired an oil monopoly and prop.oses to hold the "world to ransom." said 70 per cent, of the world's output was frdm American soil and 16 per "cent.'from Mexico, .American capita! controlling three-fourths ol the Meiican yield. In addition, he declared, Americans were seeking oil In at least 10 other coun- tries, but regardless of those .'opera- tionaj he concluded, "you havo S2 per cent.'pf the present world supply of oil under your control." For the future of the peace of tho world and for Iho functioning of the League of Nations for this purpose it Is well that not only certain In the Steles, who for their own political purposes are seeking to bring about estrangement between the Empire and tie Kepjblfc, but the world i: Oregon. The circumstance shows that the man considered that the Issue was Digger than his own personality. This is an Index ot the attribute of what Is contained in the phrase "a big man." it is stated that Her'oert Hoover re- quested cessation of all effort in his behalf ia the primary campaign in Oregon, according to Uie construction placed by _ Chester 0. Murphy, hts State campaign chairman, upon Mr. Hoover's telegram to him. Murphy declared the request would be heeded and that uo further effort in Hoover's behalf would be made in Oregon, although it was too late to have htj name taken oS the primary ballot. He based his action on this paragraph from Mr. Hoover's mes- sage "1 understand there are five candi- dates on the Republican ballot (In Oregonl, all of whom, hare friends. Some of these candidates are for aud some against the' League. No one of these candidates can withdraw. Con- Bequenlly there will be a great split in the votes between nlere names, re- sulting in the clouding ot the vital Issues. The total vote recorded against the 'uo league' candidates may give sotne indication of Oregon's views and every effort should be reeled to this end, rather than to advancement of my name." Mr. Hoover is a Srm, believer in.the League of Kstior.a. The only candi- date of importance before the elector; ate of tho'State of Oregon was Senator i Hiram Johnson, who is strongly op- jposcd to the league, lu asking" for he withdrawal of his name there good ground for surmise- that Mr. Hoover desired the opportunity of the defeat, of the "no league" candidate, which would not perhaps have been possible in the further splitting of tho vote the submission of his own name1 would occasion.

The British army and air force had been "even more drastically" dealt Sir Auckland continued: H was wllh something of irony which tho occasion called for -when the Ambassador added "H is no busi- ness of mine to compare these facts with tho corresponding action of-any other nations, but t ask yon who know yourselves to be noninilllarist ,to contrast them with your own na- tional acts If you are inclined lo think Krigland Western coal for eastern Canada i a policy of mutual benefit to both parts of the Dominion.
