It is satisfactory to find that a German organ published in Caaada feels it its duty, likewise, to -take a corresponding stand so far as its readers are concerned. The Berliner Journal oE Ontario is none too late in coming forward with its sensible plea that though the love of the 9ld Fatherland is born with Germans, the respect they should have" for their new home should not bring .divided feelings amongst them. Tbo words used 'by Journal should carry the Berliner weight with those to whom tbey apply. They have now the opportunity of showing, as tiie JctlTnal points out, a gratitude for the j-ea'rs of peace and prosperity have enjcyed under the British flag. "A-void arguments wiUi the mem- bers of other is sane advio. It should be put into practice by all the' different nationalities, including ourselves, who peoplo die Dominion.
