SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1918 THE LETHBIUDIJE OA1LV Sir Wilfrid Near To Heart Of Whole Canadian People Ottawa, Oct. Citizen (lode- londent) says Ihls morning: Sir WUWld- Laurler prrasllily uovor Ktooa, itrohiier In public esteem tlinn at Uie present tlmo. Ho would suoni to tower above more party leaders and reflect national opinion. Ho attacked by .Mr. Henri Uourussa, tlio iQuebeo Notional leader, and the IHiruK'-facod press of Ontario at thn name time; Partisan organs in On- tario, representing mediocrity on Par- liament Hill, devote more space to misrepresenting Sir Wilfrid Laurior lliari'to'any serious criticism ol the incompetence on their own loaders. Mr 'Bourassa is reported on Sunday to have referred to Sir Wilfrid as tlie ost nefarious man this Province has ever had. This, presumably, because (Sir Wilfrid is too big to be Provincial. "There are two brands of National- ism in Canada, the so-called National- ism of Quebec and the so-called Na- tional policy of Ontario. Hoth have constantly been played up by partisans to thwart the Canadian o! Sir Wilfrid Laurler. is u misnomer when applied to either the cult of Nationalism in Quebec or the tariff Nationalism In Ontario. Both are .merely phrases of Provincialism: the Quebec group seek- ing to preserve its culture and to spread it in tho other provinces; tile Ontario Interests striving to retain 1heir material privileges through, the tariff policy, at the expense of all the provinces. Sir Wilfrid Laurier sees Ontario and'Quebec as provinces of Canada; hue he also sees Canada as a nation bigger than any one province. For this breadth of vision Sir Wilfrid is the outstanding public man in Can- ada arid the constant object of attack Irom the Provincials. "But, of course, the jmrple-faced press.of Ontario does not. represent the people of this province any more than the Nationalist press represents Quebec. There is a far better brand or Canadian citizenship in both pro- .vinces and throughout the country. Unfortunately for tho national pro- gress in Canada, people, particularly in Ontario, have been imposed upon false- loyalty cries. Thus politi- cians have misrepresented Sir Wilfrid iLaurler's position with regard to the. 'British connection; and the very party to raise the loyalty cry has Itself, dur- ing the present war, demonstrated lack of kinship for the motherland by in- creasing the 'National Policy customs tax against British trade. "Sir .Wilfrid Laurier took the broad- er view of Canada's relation to the motherland when he opposed the 1915 increase of the Dominion tariff agalnit British trade. He took an -equally high stand Iwst week when he vent down to Quebec, as lie has done on several'occasions, and championed the'British and French cause in the ftT.SU Wilfrid, criticized by' the Nationalist group in Quebec 'as being loo Uritlah, and denounced by that tariff Imperialist group In Ontario aa being too Canadian, is evidently un- commonly near to tliQ Henri of the whole Canadian people."

"It was equally depressing for the .Greek navnl officers to watch for three hours tills afternoon their ships being towed away by Allied tugs. "The Allies took ovory precaution in caso of resistance being offered.

The liiup sent a message releasing every man who wished to remain with his ship and join the Allies. It is said that nobody remained. "The ship's officers wore the last to leave their vesols, taking with them their flags and the king's portrait, which had adorned every wardroom. Admiral Ijiitis removed his flag to the Lomnoii "and shut himself up in the cabin while his fleet was being towed to the new anchorage. The aide de cnmp of Admiral Ipltis, pointing to the Allied warships, remarked, as; he i watched the scene, 'what harm could we have done A Conspiracy London, Oct. to the Times' Athens correspondent a con- spiracy existea in Greece to officer the Greek fleet with anti-Entente sympa- thizers and to concentrate in Thessaiy, in the rear of the Allies, arms, troops, Hims, stores and material from Athens and elsewhere.

Improved Elastic Closed Crotch Made and Worn by Two Generations A quarter of a century ago the late C. E. Stanfield, a pioneer underwear manufacturer of Truro, N.S., discovered a way to prevent woollen underwear from shrinking the radical but sensible plan of taking the shrink out of the wool before it went to the knitting machines. His secret process at once overcame the one fault of woollen underwear, and started a keen and steadily growing demand for the Stanfield's product. On it, by steady development, his two sons, at the head of Stanfield's Limited, have built a thriving business employing nearly 600 operatives, and providing underwear for hundreds o'i thousands of Canadians. From the very first, the sterling quality of Stanfield's Underwear, as proved by wear and washing, has been its most prominent feature. It actually DOES NOT SHRINK, "full up" nor on the basis of length of service it is the best value offered in underwear. Not content with superior quality, Stanfield's give wearers all the little niceties that make undergarments luxurious. Wonderfully soft in to perfect such special features as Stanfield's Improved Elastic Closed Crotch (in Combinations) and Stanfield's new Elastic Inset Unshrinkable Underwear means the utmost in comfort as well as in warmth and service.
