The money is needed^ no matter whether the war ends next week or next year. The cost of the demobilization of our forces will mean a vast expenditure. We met the obligation of mobilising the forces, and maintaining them and we must meet the cost, cheerfully and generously, of bringing the forces back and returning them to ciTll life. We should make the Victory .I.,oan the biggest yet. It would prove to the soldiers that Canada is back of them, whether it be peace or war. A slacker on this coming Liberty Loan must remember that he -will be In the Men-nonite class. The Mennonltes never subscribe to war efforts and the yellow Canadian at this time, must bo put in the ^ame class.

Mr. Coleman has been ittthe west for a number of years and it'is his complete Toiowledge of the wept, with hia other qualifications ffined by experience, that has brought about his recognition. He has had a marvellous career so far and he is not at-the top of the ladder yet. AUTOCRACY MUST BE OVERTHROWN President Wilson did not waste any time in replying to Germany. It was the sort of a reply that we all hoped he would make and it is so clear and emphatic that the Germans can't misunderstand it � The Boche may Tfave had an idea ha could fool the allies into an armistice, but the president spoils that prospect. The .Allies, he. declares,, must retain military supremacy and the allied military leaders are left to decide upon what it is to be. We can surmise what it will he; it means unconditional surrender and nothing less. The president puts the criminals cap on the head of the Hun once more. He recalls the crimes on land and. sea ot last week and says thlre can be no thought of a peace with a nation so barbarian and so hypocrit leal as to resort to infractions ot international law at a time when It waa proposing peace and seeking an armistice.'. President Wilson demands autocracy's overthrow. There can be no end tt) the struggle until that is assured. The war would be lost were autocracy not thrown into the refuse heap. It is our business^now to bond every energy to finish the job we have had on our hands since 1914. The men in the trenches are doing their part to the credit of themselves and of Canada; those of us at home can do our share right away by oversubscribing the Victory Loan. ' Ei-A1d. Geo.
