MdKay is not going to be stampeded''dn^ the influenza ban.-He has dealt with ,lhe situation, for the most part, drastically and quite properly so. t -liThiB'-^dmonton Bulletin Is developing ^ntrf'.an ^authbrltyj^'upon' aa'tomo-bil^a. In a recent issue it says: The windshield of an automobile 18 a'^^'gdoff" place on which" to' display' flags, pennants, signs rand badges which- it is desii'ed that -people shall see. Nevertheless, the practice of paistingvobstructiona on the wind-sHield is a dangerous one. They obscure the driver's view of the road, thus increasing the risk of accidents. The windshield is a window, not a eignboard. . Probably The Bulletin fears (he competition in advertising. We quite agree that a newspaper Is much bet-fter for that purpose than a wind- mkiih � � "1 believe;we shall content to accept:: the abdication of-the Kaiser as suffiefant atonemen^'Jar the crimes he has committed:- ^He is a criminal, not a refugee. ^;HeJ^^Bt be brought to trial as p,Y*cWmliial-:!ai}d must be made to suffer.'tb'e damnation and''punishment thal';Bhould justly follow the vilest Infamies that war dlBgraced the story'of civillzatloa/ ^ .These are the .wordsof -Rev. Dr. A. .E, Guttery, Pri?Bldent-eiect"'of the National Council of' Free'Churches''of Great Britain, in the course ot;an adj-dress at Toronto. Hi^ words are the.:-'Bentiments ot the'"whole allied'-world; The Kaiser must'bo made to feel that he Is a low down criminal. F\'om the time Plato wrote his R�' publici through successive afeM y ', Sir Thomas Moore's Utopia, t in thi theory and practice ot the French Commune, down to the vagaries of the Russian Bolsheviki, "ideal" systems of governments and society have been elaborated. The fault of all has been that they were.Idealistic and not practical. Specldua^ dross lias been ciUowed to take the place of solid gold, and, as a consequence, much of the good in these programs have gone by default.. Systems have been made alluring, but when subjected to, ahalysia it has been found that the means toward the ends aimed at have stultified their realization. This is an outstanding feature in Socialistic Bchemes which, together with many other things. Ignore the Immutabre factor' of human' nature.' The jvar, it is quite true, has created new ideals. We have come to see things from a new viewpoint. '^Vith this 7change: there' is the danger ot the extremists in their desire to change the old order o.^ things, just as there is danger in all extreme views, no matter -to' what � they are applied.  . > .: Witli" the disintegration caused "by war a new power has arisen In the world. It is the power ;of Labor, whose sons and daughters  la � the fields of war and. in the factories at home have shown in the maiie .the splendid characteristics t)f patriotism, service and aacri'Hoe, which, in their amazing magnitude, the world has never witnessed." lu the aJUeme of reconstnifeUon Labor is fully deserving of that con-^ siderafion and respect which it has earned by what it has accomplished in the war. in the .^reconstruction policies on which the leading - minds among the nations are ^ today set Labor demands a voice: and,.a place; l better that t^is globe had;never peeh peopled.'

Consider the passion wiih Which even the diseased and the wretched cling to life. We remember a cancer doctor saying that life goes on with its necessities and troubles and cares, and often tliere is danger that the dear image may "fade.

Hence it.'is 710 surprise ,that ..Labor requires that the laws purporting to p:5pteot against extrerte*^ degradation otV the standard of life need, considerajjle improvement and extension, while their administration leaves mufsb to.(be desired. Labor, furtber,-l8 right in asserting that suitable provision against the sudden turning-adrift be made for the multitude of operatives jin munition work and other war trades, who will be discharged long before most of^ the army can be disbanded. Labor believes in the minimum. In the minimum as regards' standard ratea for productive work for every willing worker,whether by hand or by brain, Labo?. Is' right In its contention. It is ^equally right when it advocates the a&dptlon of those systems and methods/of administration ami control that .:may be found, in practice, best to. promote, not profiteering, but the public, interest. Nor can the policy'9f.'the equitable sharing of the proceeds of Labor amongst all who participate in the bringing into being ot tlie,Be proceeds bp over.; looked in the, scheme ot reconstruction. � :�. Labor Is to be commended in Its insistence on the-.scientlfjo Investigation of each supceeding-.problem in- thenew scheme' ot things, for an organization of research* and for a much more ,,rapid dissemination among the whole, people of .all the science that exists- '. , -In the way that-i^ has united all classes and removed . the artificial landmarks thaU; demarcated society^ the aftermath if the war should see the removal of-ithese social barriers, and the buryinjcof class'hatreds and should be equal jealousies. There opportunity tor ftll. It is the right of the coramon"h'eritage. In-the new oi'der of things Labor must assuredly-Obtain its proper place. A responsibility rests on our authorities to se.e'lhat no eiAbltter-ment of feeling ,}s lostored. It Bhould be distlnctivelyira: case of live and let live. Lloyd beorge, in.the course of his speechea,during th^; war, remarked that L&bor should be audacious li^ ilH demands "^after the war. This jwas a figure of speech, and was | not intended to be construed too literally. But nevertheless it means much. It meanaithat in the betterment of conditlons'^Labor hasa rightful demand, 'and 'ibhould have the boldness to voice- those . demands. What' Labor !. of the "joori' worn: face, and theidead ar.e shaped in that likeness In our souls. iWherefore It is well: to. obey the com mandment to remember- the dead, to bonslder them, and to Imitate their faith. ' . III. , � Consider, also the issud; of their life with regard to the-Influence they exerted on the world. In normal times the indivIduaMite-seems often to be no more than a drop in the ocean. We pass away from our obScure station, leaving at best few to mourn us. But consider-the deaths of our soldiers' and their glorious lesues! These young ipstructed eyes have gazed onhorrorBjWhos'e'llke'haS: not hitherto been known in the world, but their'sacrifice has been rendered wlllirigly.-' 'All thM they--word; - all that they might have been'- on earth, the'y -have given-, away. They ;have deliberately, sftcrifieed. It: tor their land, for their people, for liberty, and for Justice. ' AH their-sufferings'-.have been 'to them 'iinly'th�-';niu6'{l twbifla-tlon through" which they-hava.- entered the kingdom of God. It:iiB to them that "the world will-owe all that makes lite worth living in the time -to :come, and though by and iby the effa'-clp^ touchv'of time wjlj -'.make their' monument's: iiiSgifilfe, j and though ail who were theirs pass awayv yet the.results,will-never pass. They answered the call as the Hebrews answered the call of the Apos'tle. They -remembered how comrades had died, and they In their turn died too-willingly, often joy-fulljy, always, so far as we have read, peacefully it least. ' So the bereaved, considering the mighty issue of their lite-^an issue which will grow from"more to more through the ages-may well remember them and consider the manner of their dying and ii^ita'te their faith. IV;-- � . - ^ The last thing suggested by � the words Is ^the issue In eternity. They are there' at home with the Captain ot their-salvation. They have been faithful over a few things, and they will be rulers over ma'ny things. They, have entered into-the Joy of their Lord. And who can believe that any of their noble gifts, ot geni'us or intellect or patience or courage, will fail to be developed to the uttermost? To those who grew old, weary, heavy laden and lonely, nothing, appeals so much'ds tht! promise of Vest, jjt is not so;, and should nut be so,-with the yoiing.' It is bles.sed to: tbi-nk of them In their youth on high. They were-,: taken .away iinspent, before the year'B''^iad '^(rrDnged them. The faithful iWlll share iln'Christ's glory and repose.' But rest does not mean idlo-ness. It means the completer service that is followed by no v,reDrinesn. This is the issue of their life-to face great tasks and rsaf in - work- ' In work which Is-^ery full of rest; 'Such/then, the Issue of their life, on their own Circle, on the "world, and In eternity. ' � In order that all this may 'como to pass with ourselves we must Imitate their faith. It does not say that we are to imitalo them. We are to imitate none' but Christ. It. often happens that powerful and attractive personalities are followed b'y - imitators. These imltatioDS are' almost certain failures. We wore not made to copy one another. One la our Master, even Christ. But we are continually exhorted to imitate ''their faith, and tills is the faith which waits and is not shaken though the - - .; .....8Vt*.i4) , : The pnl'tfeuliiV'' record'.'you ,'in�S wklijt 'can lie; te-'' ciured'. here iinmciilately; For years thorHghout 'Our twontjr,. stores .'ive hajo speclaUaod In V!>ctg4r?By.the Trinity Choir,, i ' A i :-Bua ifSlldht> Nlghtt Holy.
