Canada Has, the Most to Lose G1EL HARVESTING HER FATHER'S CROP Man" in Canadian. Nothing hut ft (lonao Ignomnco the iiiEermuiuiwl ultuatton could pos- sibly justify the feeling which is GO common in'Canada, that we have very much loss at stake in this war than 1mvo the European Allied nations. Of course, our people never have taken international politics seriously. They huve always acted on the theory that "diplomacy" was a wicked mixture lying and secrecy and deception, with which it was distinctly to our credit to have nothing to do. We were too honorable and .upright and truth- telling to play the diplomatic game. Only the effete and peoples of the Old World could be got to mix n such a muddle. The consequevice is that we, its a result of our hypo- crisy, do not understand the direct and important relations which exist between our national future, as well as our individual, happiness and "dip- lomacy." We imagine ourselves saJe- Iv outside its sway, and conceive of i o'urselves today as generously sending soldiers to help other people fight their battles. A more wrong-headed and deadly dangerous notion could hardly exist. The precise opposite is, in my opin- ion, the truth. We stand to lose MORE by a German'victory than do any of the other Allied nations, with the possible exceptions of Belgium and Serbia. This is not hyperbole or metaphor; I believe it to be the lit- eral fact; and I will tell you why. A German victory in this war means the early dismemberment of the British Empire. Most of our people see this now, without finding it necessary to have the why and tlie wherefore ex- plained to them in detail. So I shall not pause at this point. Now, the dis-} menrbennent of the British Empire; will not mean, I take it, the German I occupation of any part of the British j Islands. England, Ireland and Scot-1 land will be much wi'Il; have lost their they will be free and self-gererned. The great- er part of France will be left free, French and self-governed. Ger- many not want any more Alsace- Lorraines. Italy will come out of the I if' Italy, j with the exception of some of her' northern provinces.. Russia may lose Poland, but Russia will be still Russia. Canada, on the other hand, will be wholly taken over, occupied, systemat- ically settled and ruthlessly ruled by Germany. There is no more doubt of this fchan there .Is. that the sun will rise tomorrow morning. Take' a map of the world, which shows the British Empire colored red, arid decide what portions oi that red territory a wise German- Empire it she had her choice.: wants, we. all: She'wants-ra land where her people and prosper where- there is an abundance of natur-' al wealth fpr_ them, to1 they can colonize create an Over- seas they will stand ever ready to fly to the help .of the Fatherland if it he "attacked. Where can she best find that within the lim- its uf the British Not in In- is too full already. She might like-to exploit her people :to consume goods "made in but both climate 'and a population would prevent her from turning India into an Over- seas Germany. Egypt, she would probably take "commercially under the guise of a Turkish' province. But Germans cannot live th.-re the whole year round. South Africa will be tempting, -bit 'the Boer population would not fta'ce kindly to Prussian methods. They hare'shown what they think of the 'prospect by their gallant efforts in this -war. Australia is an empty Island Continent a large part of it is said to he uninhabitable by Eu- it lies ever under the menace oi an awakened- and over- crowded Asia. That pretty well calls the roll till we get to CansSa. And what of Canada? It has.a temperate climate, not unlike Germany itself. It is sparsely populated, and so could soon, by systematic German emigra- tion, be turnid into a German col- ony. Its natural resources are not matched in the world. It is an ideal land for the overseas -devil.qpmeat. of German Imperial ambitions. The Get-, mans could create here a German- sieaking United States" which .-they would hope to hold in perpetual'fief to the Hohenzollern crown..And, judg- ing by the docility of the German- Americans in the present United States; they would have a compara- tively easy'proposition. The German race lacks that passion for s-If-gov- ernment and individual freedom which 'dominates and spurs on the EnjJJsh- speaking races. So the; e is no doubt Germany would want it much more than any other possible spoil of war after defeat of the Allies. commonly takes what she she can. And who would prevent her from taking once the British Empire ftrate and the. present gallant ance of Free Nations'shatt red-? If our very good' neighbors, the Ameri- cans, cherish the delusion that for one minute they could prevent it, they are due for a rude Ger- many wins this war. They have a navy which, even today, .is second to the German navy. But they may he certain that the German it overpowers the British be much hisecr and more powerful than it is today. And, remember, we are not calculating in this little dis- cussion, on them fighting while the British navy is still able to fight. They show little inclination to do that now, when they, could probably win this war for the, Allies anil for inational imlepcndencfcby simply join- Ing us formally.

They will have no army at all in the European sense. Moreover, Germany will not declare war on them. She will simply announce that she proposes to "move in next and that she hopes that they will he the very best of neighbors. Then she will land a German army here, 'strong enough to sweep them from the St. Lawrence to the Rio'Grande i without serious trcuhle, and will pro- -I'ceed-to take up any border disputes or trade hostilities that she may find in being. It is just possible that in i that day, if it ever dawns, the pun- dits at "Washington may regret that they did not curb the might at Ger- many when "they could have done it by simply signing a declaration of war. for this grossly wronged nation in speaking of them in the future.

SCION OF THE HUN ROYAL FAMILY PROTESTS (New York, Tribune) We have received tho following wholly appealing To the.Editor .of The Tribune: you show your fairness to the "voiceless" "by giving space to the following declaration? i French, English and some Amerl- cans, refer to the Germans as "Huns." This is a great injustice, not to the Germans, but to the Huns. The lat- ter came. to Europe 1800 y.ears ago with exactly the same aim of seeking new pasture grounds as had the Graecd-Italians, Gau'ls and Germans before them. They have been.painted too black histor- ians who did not-know what they were talking about. .The Hur.s were fond of war; so were the Romans and Germans. That is all. But the high chivalry and noMe spirit of the Huns were best evidenc- ed when King Attiia, who was proud of being known as the Scourge of God, came face to' face with Pope Leo I. who implored him to spare the Holy Eternal City, this did: while it Is very doubtful If the barbarians o'f Rhelms and Louvain would do the same have more considerfttloa THE HERALDS SUBSCRIPTION CONTEST rich reward to YOU for all of your time or Only Spare Time.
