Through the efforts of the Daughters of the Empire, Dr. Harcourt was induced to return to the city and repeat his address last evening in behalf o! the patriotic fund, and the many who heard him 'on this occar sion have reason to he exceedingly grateful to those who arranged his return. It is a 'ohg time since Letlj-' bridge citizens were privileged, to. listen to a speech which was at once so enlightening and' so stirring, i A. M. Grace, president of the patriotic fund committee, presided, and I Ernest Lay ton presided-at the - pipe organ. At the conclusion of the address of Dr.-Harcourt, Mayor Hardie and Judge Jackson moved a vote of thanks which was heartily responded to. After dealing at length and in a way which opened the.eyes of those present, of the vast territory >com-prising India and its great natural wealth and the wealth of its people; and the possibilities of the country, Dr. Harcourt went on to show what-a tremendous power India. wasv becoming in the commercial .world, (through the benefits and advantages which had been conferred upon its TENEMENT FIRE .

Mr. Asquith said the total casualties in France and Fianderg amounted to 357,000. He asserted the Germans had not made a net.gain-of a foot of ground since April. The Premler?accepted his full share of responsibility for the first attack on the Dardanelles, which resulted in failure wltili the loss of several capital ships.1 He said this attack was made after full investigation; and consultation with naval experts, and it was sanctioned by the government, notwithstanding some doubt in the minds of the government's principal naval advisers. Reviewing the work; of the British submarines in the Turkish campaign, the Premier said that in. the Sea of Marmora^ they ihad -sunk or. damaged two battleships, five, gunboats, one torpedo boat,, eight transports and 197 supply Bhlps. Mr. Asquith -said there was full agreement between- Great Britain and France to maintain the independence of Serbia; and not let her "'become the prey of the sinister and nefarious combination, of Germany, Austria and Bulgaria.". The Premier asserted the financial situation of Great Britain was serious, and that the nation must be prepared to make far greater sacrifices than it. had yet .done to enable the country to;sustain the burden impos; ed by the war. * Premier Asquith said he strongly believed the recruiting . plan of the Earl of Derby wouid succeed,-and that compulsory service- unnecessary. Amid loud cheers, Premier Asquith said Canada had contributed 96,000 officers and men. - Premier Asquith prefaced his remarks concerning the war by saying his statement had been delayed by cir- cumstances over which he . had no control, but the delay had the advantage of enabling him to receive warnings and counsels from every quarter. He would disappoint many expectations, he continued, not the least expectations of those who thought ha ought to appear as a criminal, or as a penitent in a white Bhe'et. However, he did not propose to adopt either attitude. He intended to describe as far as possible the actual and prospective position to the- nation, which "is as determined today as it has ever been to prosecute the war to a successful finish,, and which trusts the government, by whomsoever controlled, to use every means to the attainment of that purpose;'' He continued: "ft is true today that some parts of the horizon are overcast. This war, like all other, wars, has been fruitful of surprises and,disappointments. The movement calls for three things: a proper, sense of perspective, a limitless stock of patience, and overflowing reservoir* of; courage. � Mr. Asoulth referred to the small coterie of professional Whimperers,, who kept our enemies supplied daily: with a diet of falsehoods.- 1 j'" "The government," he said,- "had no intention of concealing anything; subject to the one over-riding condition: that its disclosure would'.not assist Great Britain's enemies."-1 *. "How do we- stand today*" asked the Premier. "In August of last year we were prepared to send abroad six infantry and two cavalry divisions. In the operations - described;-; by Field-' Marshal French, in his last dispatch he had under his command not far short of 1,000.000 men; to these must be , added the - troops .et'-the Cirda-nelies, in Egypt and An otter .centres of war, as well as .our_gja9lsons and troops in reserve..'* "F^ST'� The announcement was made TJy., Premier Asquith that former premier Venizelos of Greece, whose � advocacy" of intervention in the war on the side of the Entente Allies, led to his resignation, asked France - arid Great Britain on September 21, for. 160,000: men, with the express understanding that Greece would mobilize. .:.
