Subscription Ottlr. delivered, per year.... by mail, per year..... Weekly, hy mail, per year... 54.00 1.00 TELEPHONES: Business Office Editorial Office W. A. Buchanan Managing Director 1C52 John Torrance Business Manager Your King and Country Need You Right Now ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The crisis in Greece is rapidly com- ing to a head as the result of me de- feat of the Zaimls government King Constantino is sidestepping in all di- rections in an endeavor to keep form- er Premier Veoitzelos, known to be favorable to the Allies, from coming again into control. The King now pro- poses, BB a last resort, to dissolve Parliament, which cannot again he convened while the nation's army is mobilized. This would leave the Zaimis forces still in control, but there wou'.d be no popular represen- tation in the government. It is not likely that the people would tolerate th'.s. In the meantime the Allied na- tions are indulging in no undue opti- mism until the crisis develops fur- ther. The German forces on the eastern front have brought themselves to a state of near-exhaustion in their vain to crush the Russian de- fensive around BvrnGfc and Riga. It is likely that -srinter quarters will be taken up without any further effort at advancement Nlsh, the present capital of Serbia, is beios threatened by Bulgarian troops, according to Berlin reports, and the same source gives informa- tion of a French defeat by the Bui- gars. anything tor the- -Mother Country, I if Blondin and Patounudo still hold the viBWB ol JlonS, Bourassa and vorgua, thoir place is not In u gov- ernment tliat is following a policy op- posite to tho Nationalises. Probably a government portfolio appeals to them more strongly than tho views advocated In 1911. Lavergue's views expressing BE they do, the views ol the entire National- ist- element, arc very close to being seditious. If their policy had been adopted in this country, it would havu meant that Canada would have done nothing in this war, even though it was in danger of hocomius a part a! the German Empire. We would have sat still with arms folded, and allow- ed Great Britain and the other Do- minions to have fought to prevent us losing qur liberty and freedom, and our system of responsible government which has permitted such ingrates as Bourassa and Lavergne to enjoy a place in our public life. IE Uiese men lived in Germany today, they would have been in a dungeon long ago. Evi- dently they do not care whether Can- ada remains a part of the British Em- pire or not. Their policy would cer- tainly permit us to lose our British connection, and become, a part of a new German Empire if the war was to end in victory for Germany. A fine fellow was Lavergne to be offer- ed to voluntarily offer his services was Crown. Some people way excuse the Minister by saying that he was trying Well, tested to test loyalty. Armand Lavergne had been long ago. The very fact that he fail- ed to voluntarily offer his service was proof of his fighting Qualities and his love of country. CANADA'S BUSINESS TO MAKE .OFFER It is a mistaken impression some 'newspapers attempt to convey that the summoning ot_troops from Canada rests with Lord Kitchener and the Imperial government. The Canadian government is, entirely responsible. It must mate the offer, and it rests with .the Imperial government to ac- cept the offer or not The recent agitation which resulted in the an- nouncement that Canada's overseas :to he increased to a ter of a million men, was'directed at the Militia department at Ottawa, and not at the War office. Canada con- trols its own affairs, Is the right of Canadians to suggest changes in policy or criticise existing policy Criticism is prevalent In the Old Land and, in erery oelilgerent country where freedom ot speech Is permitted, hut it seems that some of the old Tory ideas are rampant in this conn- try just now, and if possible a certain element would have the freedom and liberty .of the subject removed.

Such transactions arc in line with the exiecience ol the small arms manufacturers in the United States, who, it is alleged, had agreed on a price ot twenty-live dollars per thous- and rounds ot the standard cartridge but were told to charge twenty-seven dollars and invoice the goods at thirty-five. This story has yet to he denied. At all events there is or has been enough excess profit in munition .man- ufacturing in Canada and speculation in war stocks ior the Finance Minis- ter to confiscntn say nine-tenths of it in the way of taxes. No patriot will ask for more than ten per cent, net Daiticularly iu times when so many other people ate making nothing. As a matter oi lact, it he is a real pa- triot, he ought to be satisfied to clear expenses and make no money out of the Empire's agony but per- haps thai would be too much to ex- pect of human impertection. Mean- while it is up to the Government either to insist on a small, legitimate profit for the munition maker or to tax their excess vroflts back into the Dominion Treasury and help to pay off our war debt to England that way. Sir Sam announced the other night that one hundred and seventy thous- and men had been enlisted in Canada, but that equipment' and training were at least fifteen thousand men behind :the schedule. This partly explains Sir Sam's discouraging statement that two men were offering for every one needed but it does not explain why the equipment got so iar behind that thousands of men are drilling with- out uniforms. There are; of course, several compete and satisfactory ex- planations, but not one of them can he put forward by the gallant knight who is in charge oi the Militia De- partment. One is that the patronage list operated to exclude perhaps half the possible manufacturers. Another is that the middleman with a pull but no plant was allowed to grab oil orders which he peddled about until he got a factory that would do it cheap enough to give him the big bite. The third is that the Govern- ment made no provision with the mills for an emergency supply of khaki and that such supply as was in stock was steered toward a favored few while other clothing manufactur- ers with less influence, stuck around until the big ieiiows gat through. The fourth reason is that the Gov- ernment has neglected and still to provide at some central an assembling house lor raw materials irom which the .manuiac- I turers of war products, other than I arms and ammunition, can replenish. 1 In short, there ha? been BO attempt at industrial organization, outside tho jm mflUSl-Llal ui.u it to mention those who might' making of guns, shells and powder, Sir Sam to stay at keep the which are only half the game alter from wr ting as good bulletins in wheels turning.

Instead the offer of the command of a regi- ment Lleut-Gol. Lavergne en abled tie fiery Nationalist to refuse, accompanied by an expression of his time-worn opinions on Canada's par- ticipation in the Empire's wars. The Minister of Militia knew vergne's views; he knew that he not only Is a separatlonist, nut has many of the traits of a coward. Why should such a man he recognized in way He is very mnch a traitor, He had taken an.oath as commanding 'officer of a regiment that he would be loyal to his King, and the fact that lie had not offered his services dur ing the war, and that he had frequent ly expressed himself opposed to ada's part In the war was sufflcien Indication that he would refuse to ac cent the offer made to him.
