Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta "To-Dream of Eternal Peace Is Un-German and Not for He Wrote a Year Ago. A THOROUGH SOLDIER Has Holy Be- fore It of Being Always Ready for War." THE Crown Princo of Germany, tho Kaiser's eldest son, has ap- parEntly conio Into his own. For years ho has-been a leading advocate of a policy for Ger- many. Ho has Identified himself en- tirely with tho army. He has resent- ed anything that bore the faintest re- gcmblahco to a slur upon It, enthusi- astically commended utterances (OC a militaristic tendency, and become at times so outspokenly belligerent that his Imperial fatfior was comyellcd to his ardor.

But now this youthful advocate of militarism finds thc war which he be- lieved Imminent actually under way.

If France had had a Joffre in 1370 the Germans would not have won. He is, like our own Lord Kitchener, an organizer ot victory. He does not believe in flashes gertius.

Af- this he won distinction in For- mosa, In Madagascar, in Dahomey, and then in Timlmctoo, whither he icd thc remains of the broken col- umn of Colonel Bonnier after he had put new spirit Into the men.

Now, in Iho middle nineties, ho came back to France and went steadily upwards, working hard all the time, until he was.m .1911 naked to take the chief command. He maintains that the warlike genius of the French is as strong, as ever. He will not admit that tho increase oi: luxury resulting from the greater complication of life and the' erowth of huge cities has weakened the aasn and vigor of French troops The. duty of a French gcffcral, he believes, is to use that dash and .vigor to tiie lull.

Sir David Beatty was made a Knight Commander of the Order ot the Eath only this year. The new distinction came just in time to en- able Sir David and Lady Beatty to air it in St. Petersburg, in connection with the official visit to Russian ters of the first cruiser squadron !whlch ho commands. Their hirly gracious reception by the Czarj and Czarina was due to thc very, warm regard in which they are held by Queen Alexandra, by Kins and by his consort. Indeed, the personal friendship 06 the two queens for Lady Beatty is such that they have been, only too willing to waive In her case the ob-] stacles that stand In the way of mission of divorcees at court, and! nto Inner circle ot Intimates of the King and two Queensland' t has caused them to close their eyes; to the fact that before marrying Da-j id Beatty, his wife, who is thc daughter of the late Marshall of'Chicago, divorced, her first lius-J band, Arthur Tree.

These relations were further ce- mented by the-intimacy which developed, between the Beatty chil- dren and those of the then Prince and Princess of Wales. King i'd- wnrd, too, took a great fancy to the Beattys, and appointed David Beatty to his suite, as one of his naval aides-de-camp. To-day there Is no American woman who stands as high In the good graces of Queen Mary, arid to whom she-accords so great a degree of Intimacy, aa Lady Beatty. It Is only fair to Sir David to1 add that he owes his rapid promotion and his' advancement to the rank of rear-admiral, at the wonderfully ;earlys age of quite as -uuch to distin- guished war service as to favor.! i employed in Egvnt for sav-( ercl years under Lord Kitchener, andj when: Admiral Sir Colin Keppel wounded .took of thc boat flotilla on the Nile, fiffhtlBE tno cneiny with .great persistence and courage, and. winning the distinguish- ed service order.
