Buchanan John Tornnce Managing Director Business Manager PRESENT SITUATION Following the nniucs of localities mentioned 4n recent reports there comes the. conclusion that the begin- ning of this week shows an advance nil alcDs the main line of battle, which meted out to Belgian noucombatants has 'been that" tho Belgian civilians had no right to shoot upon tho Ger- man officers and soldiers. Had'it not been for such offences, the Germans say, Louvath, Termondo nnd other cities would not have been wrecked. Lloyd George in a great speech the Queen's Hall In London' at the end of September, dealt most effect- ively with this-German contention. He 6 aid: "1 am not poiiig to enter into these details of outrages. Many of them are untrue; they always are In a war. War is a grim and ghastly business at best or at I am not going to Bay that all that has been said in the way ot tales of outrage must neces- sarily oo true. If you turn two mill- ions of men. forced, compelled, draft- ed Into the field'you will-certainly get amongst them a number of men who will do things that the ntition Itself would be ashamed of. I am not de- pending upon that. It is enough for mo to have the story, which the Ger- started along the river Aisne. on the themselves admit> defend, part of the Allies, and a. correspond-1 proclaim, the burning, the massacring, Ing way by the eneniy. the eaootlng- rtown of harmless twople. rieht has ia all prob-1 according to the Ger- mans they flred on German soldiers. The German righ ability been practically cleared from French territory, for the Allies on this -part of the battlefield hare madu decided progress northwards, occupy- ing the town of north- west of Lille. Also the extremity ot the German -right wing, which some days bach rested at Douai, appears to be now at Couxtral in Belgium, The little, river Lys flowing through north- ern France Scheldt, seems to mark the position of the Germans be- tween Armentieres and Courtrai. The enemy also has been driven back on his centre from the hood of Rhetms. On his left he is ap- parently in difficulties, for here the Allies have made advances from Ver- dun, and the reports indicate that the army of the Grown Prince is in a pre- carious position. The narcl news, with the destruc- tion the four German torpedo boat destroyers, is eminently satisfactory, and shows that-the enemy's fleet has only to come out from its hiding place to meet the fate that inevitably awaits it. A GREATER EMPIRE It was a great reception the Canad- ians received upon their unannounced aiTiral on English soil. It was inspir- ing' to the old countrymen to see doz- ens of men from a dominion of the Empire disembarking upon the soil of England to prepare themselves to go across the Channel to join in the with the Allies against the autocrat of Europe. Our Canadian soldiers created a splendid impression, aa was expected men, and they have 'responded to the call because they were of the not that Britain was in danger much as the world was in. danger; ye their service has been given in .th awful European struggle Because the are a-part of the great British Empire because they owe allegiance to King, and because they form a part ol an Empire which has erar stooc .for; the advancement of civilization freedom' and liberty. Today they are training upon, Salisbury Plain; in .days they may in the mids of the warfare in Prance and Bel giuzn. .It Js.r-not vain to say that their ar rrival upon the scene of conflict wil cheer and encourage the brave Bri tlsh, French and Belgian soldiers. Im azine the feelings of the British sold ler when, he finds at his side men from a part of the Empire, who have come to tho battlefields because they were a part of the lands owing iers there at all? (Cheers.) "Belgium was acting in pursuance of the most sacred right to defend your own home. But they were not hi uniform when they shot. If a burglar broke into the Kaiser's palace at Potsdam, destroyed, his furniture, shot down his servants, ruined his art those he has made his precious you Uiink he would wait until he got into his uniform before he shot him dor.-n? They were dealing with those who broke into their households. But their perfidy has already failed. They entered Belgium to save time. The time has gone. (Cheers.) They have j not gained time, 'but they have lost their good name." Lloyd George did not idmlt the truthfulness of the German statement but even if it were true, his reply is sufficient to prove that the Belgians were innocent sufferers from a big bully and had a -perfect right to treat the marauder as he Bays he was treat- ed. In the same speech the Chancellor or the Exchequer ridiculed the 'Ger- man claim that It was fighting for a higher civilization in this war. He said: allegiance to the same flag the men of England, Scotland'and Ireland owe illegiance. Separated we may be by .vast....stretches of. water, but bound very closely are we hy the ties of race And ideals. This Empire means inpre to us now than it ever did. It. is a concrete affair We can see the men of .AmtraHa and New Zealand, the men of India and Newfoundland, and the men from the smaller colonies of Empire heading towards tfie little "isle, ready to 3om in the conflict which Britain entered for righteousness' lake. Britain will be closer to the Empire, ind the Empire be closer to the Mother Countrj after thin war than Bver before m the nistory 01 that Em pire. In South Africa, one of the neiv flpminlqna of the Empire, there have been dissensions, but it IB as clear a: daylight that 'the great mass of tlii South African people are fervcntl; 'oyal to Britain Germany has bea busy sowing discord, but Its effort aaye brought, forth very-little-f rail ind uader-_tho able direction of Botha i- South Africa will play its part nob] L indwell Its effort will likely be con Ined to its own 'boundaries and tc with the German coloniei 'fb is true, that wherever th pick theo up and was. wdtstripped by her lover.
