Judge Jackson Present President Bradshaw. in introducing His Honor Judge Jackson, said he would like to confer upon him the title of "Father Of the Magrath Red Cross." as some 3 years ago he was here and organized same. Judge Jackson said he was glad to have the privilege of speaking here and was proud of the title bestowed upon him by Mr. Bradshaw. Said he had recently, re: turned from Toronto where he attended the meeting of the Central Council of Dominion Red Cross, where ('there were representatives from every province in the Dominion. He wanted to impress upon the minds of people that Red Cross work will not cease when peace is declared, but must go on until all wounded are cared for, and there must not he any faltering on our part. He told how the Red Cross work had advanced in France, how at first it was confined to hospitals, but now went right into trenches. He said he was very pleased with the secretary's report and spoke well of Magrath. Pie told of Red Cross' early life in Canada and of its growth. Judge Jackson told the local officers it was best to purchase goods from the Central Red Cross office as they can supply them cheaper than local merchants, and Red Cross money must be spent to the best advantage. Mr. Bridge's solos, "For the Glory of the Grand Old Flag," and "Hit the Trail that Leads to Mother," were enjoyed by all. Mr. Elton Speaks Mr. Elton was the next speaker and said he wanted to scatter sunshine and cheer and not gloom. He said he was pleased to hear the good report) of the work done here. Magrath has raised about $8 per capita the past year, ihe province of Alberta is to raise $400,000, the coming year, about $1 per head, Magrath has done 8 tim^s that, and still what an insignificant thing to what our soldiers 're doing, who are paying the supreme sacrifice on the battle fields. $1000 raised from serving meal3 during the summer was a splendid record. Ten articles sewed for every day of the year including Sunday, but he was doubtful if each person was doing their share or leaving it for some one else to do. Do you-sew your 10 articles or does j'our neighbor sew 100 and you none? This work Is for all and we all (piust do our full share. He spoke of an aged i lady 90 years of age, who in the past J 5 months had knit 150 pairs of socks.' Can you do your duty'if she can? No need to talk to mothers who have boys "oia^r there", but others- sometimes need reminding of their duty. Whatever we do,, do it with good cheer. The Boy Scouts then sans the rube song, ''Goodbye, Ma." They were brought back and sang it agaii The piano selection by Mrs. Afton Keiler was enjoyed immmisely. The "National Anthem and Maplo Leaf," was the piece played. The election of officers for the ensuing year was next in order. Mr. H. W.

Peter Murray. 82. who for many years has been postmaster of Wilton Grove, a villp^a n:^.r London, Ont., Paris. Oct. t.-It was the fear of revolution at home and the failure of Germany and Austria to send the forces he required that induced King Ferdinand of Bulgaria to turn to the allies for help, according to the American consul-general at' Sofia, (Dominick Murphy), as quoted in a dispatch to the Matin from Saloniki. The consul-general, the , dispatch says, gave interesting details on his arrival from Sofia at Salonlki in company with the Bulgarian plenipotentiaries of the conditions in the Bulgaria capital leading up to the demand for an armistice. King Ferdinand, the account declares, assembled the grand council on Sept. 2,'J, with the result that a demand was made on Berlin and Vienna for immediate assistance. Despite the urgent tone of the demand. Germany and Austria responded with evasive promises for the future. That, the account continues, settled �the determination of King Ferdinand to folesake the powers which had brought only desolation to Bulgaria and entrust her destinies to the entente. But what impelled the king most, the consul-general's account indicates, was the fear of revolution. Anarchy was making serious progress in Sofia. Workmen and soldiers hadheld meetings and passed laws. Bolshevik! in its worse form became the order of the day. King Feidinarid, it is added, haunted by recollections of the executiou of Former Emperor Nicholas, was unable to sleep. He considered it essential for his country*and his own safety that a strong foreign military force should intervene and thus, it is added, Germany could not give him that force and he^turned to the entente. REPARATION BEFORE LEAGUE OF NATIONS London, Oct. 1-In his speech here today Hon. Arthur Balfour, Foreign Secretary, said-: :. . "If you are going to render permanent German domination over Russia, especially western , Russia and the small people along'ttie Baltic; if you refuse to redress the wrongs of Poland; if the subordinated peoples in the Austrian empire are to be left under the heel ,of the German and Magyar minorities; if the Balkans again are to be the scene of bloody wars and the occasion of hostilities among their neighbors; if the Turk is to be allowed to resume his bloody sway over the territorities occupied by him; if Italy is not to have' Testored to her qnd added to her those populations which really is hers indeed; If Greece is to be threatened as in the past by the domination of the central powers; if Serbia is not to be restored after all her appalling sacrilces and glorious gallantry; if France is not to resume her full place in western Europe and if Belgium is not to be restored in full measure; if all those evils are not potentially to recur, then you must do something more than merely establish a league of nations. "You must put these wrongs right before a league of nations can come to work.. You must give it a clean slate to work upon. Thenr and only then, will your league of nations work. "Therefore, in order to make a league of nations possible, complete victory is absolutely necessary. Germany can only he a member of , a league of nations when the international system has been reformed by a great wise and all embracing peace and that can never take .place until Germany, not merely has' been obliged to change her profession of faith, but until Germany find* herself in a position where all her dreams of world domination are torn to pieces before her eyes and she is left powerful indeed as she will be powerful doubtless, prosperous, doubtless and wealthy, .but no longer a tyrant who can cause the nations which she is in a posit.'on to influence to serve her own dreams of world power. "Therefore, I ask you to remember how far the financial efforts we are now calling upon you to make extend beyond any merely financial operation." ADOPT SOLDIERS' PRINCIPLES Toronto, Oct. 1.-"Let us seize the close of the war as a time to enshrine in the peace life of the nation the principles that our soldiers have illustrated at the front," said Prof. XV. F. Osborne, chairman of the faculties of the University of Manitoba, hi hi.s address to the Canadian club here.
