She is. attempting to have them modified. They are terrible, says the German press. Is anything too terrible as a punishment to the Germans for their offences �gainst humanity since 1?14. These protesting Germans might take a leaf out of their own book. In 1S70 when they marched on Paris the French asked Bismarck to give an armistice fc-r a lew days so that they might call the National Assembly together to submit to them the German terms. The answer was, "Yes. but you must allow its to put our guns all right round Paris Bnd point them so that any moment we can take it." There was no consideration then by Germany and there '.s a "heap less reason why we should he considerate to the Germans Bow.

Hut it should not he looked on in its entirety as the" panacea for all ilis. It should not be taken as read that agricultural, occupation will be suitable to one and all of tho repatriated men. Tiierc is not a doubt that settle-blent on the land will appeal to many of the fighting men. This, however, should not carry with it anything of the semblance of banishing them into the wilderness, isolated from their fe'.iows, far away from transportation, and thus without the means of making the most of the use* of the land on which they aro placed. Men placed on the land should not be put there in tho spirit of working out their own salvation. The mean* towards tho same should he afforded them. This of necessity moans tho THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1918 ;___L-U__ssL'--. -l.jji-U--"*s--mmmm The return Into govornmontal possession from tho military authorities ot the agricultural accessories, to bo judiciously made of use. will be a vastly useful machine In dealing with tho problem ot land settlement. In the matter of tho Minister ot Supply Great Britain has Uken a wise and practical step. The demobilization of supplies Is second in Importance to the demobilisation ot men, but is of vast Importance just tho same. It needs the most careful administration. In,tho handling of these supplies the way lies open to much waste, and to loss, which need not bo entailed if wisely and capably supervised and organized. It is a promising and pleasing sign of the times that our federal and provincial authorities have lost no time in setting tho machinery afoot for dealing with the internal questions which tho cessntfon of war has raised. N'o efforts can he considered too great, no application can be reckoned too severe, for meeting and solving in their very best interests tho problems which primarily affect our fighting nien. Every care must be taken that they be adequately provided for. It is tho great national and individual obligation of the day. Kvery avenue of. employment should be diligently searched. Kffort should go on unceasingly, "lest wo forget." to use Kipling's words, our great and bound-en duty to our fighting men. There is a task ahead for all, rich and poor, men of business and men of leisure. Trades fnions and employers' associations. Hand its hand should we work loyally and zealously for meeting the new changes and now conditions with honor to ourselves and a duty rendered to thoso to whom, in this and in succeeding generations, we shall be. for all time.

That comes fro~i ruling j existing transportation facilities to the waves I w!'itl1 we nave already referred, and ! which, we might add, points to a na-~~-- ; tlocalization ot land, a po^ty which looms in the horizon. It . further means, in the policy of bringing land into cultivation, the extension and do-velopment of .oar.railway system. This in turn willf serve a double purpose in regard to the provision of the do-sired facilities and in the new avenue for labor which such extension will furnish. Tbo question of land settlement brings us to the consideration of agricultural appliances. We have referred to demobilisation jn regard to human units. There is also the question of the demobilization ot'war supplies. In that respect there aro tho numerous supplies furnished for the war Ms the way of equipment which today will have their uses when applied to agricultural purposes. These are motor lorrlea, tractors,' horses' and such like.

LYING TO PREJUDICE THI EAST Certain eastern papers are using a so-callod "special service" from a western correspondent that, while it uits their purposes ot spreading false Impressions, is created almost wholly out ot the Imagination. These letters would create the belief in the east that the west was dominated by the foreign element, overlooking entirely the contribution of the western provlncea to the war in men, money and production. After the Ited Deer bye-elec-Uon this special correspondent circulated in the east the report that J. J. Gaetz, the successful candidate, was of foreign birth, and that hlB election was due to the foreign vote. It was a yarn, pure and simple. Mr. Gaels belongs to an old Nova Scotia family that came to Canada many years prior to 1100. When the Oaetzs came weBt they founded Red Deer and thero is do more honored name in Alberta. Mr. Oaats bad orer 800 majority and to say that bis election was due to the foreign rote, is ridiculous to any person familiar with the extent of tho foreign vote in the constituency. The "special correspondent" may be serving the end desired in the east, but he is nothing more than a joke to the people who ,�re  on the ground in Laa wast and know the facts. Ontario farmers.

He may have a chance of eating it thero on Christmas 1918, as a prisoner. The Calgary Herald's Ottawa correspondent has been guessing for a long time on cabinet changes at Ottawa. He will have made so many guesses that when changes take place he may have been able to hit the mark in a few Instances. of the offipu Minister of Supply or Minister of Demobilization.
