Went In Reluctantly The premier recalled that his last visit to Manchester wa.f paid in June, 1917, when he appealed to the engineers to organize for the .war. He had not gone into this work personally with any eagerness and in fact he did not mind saying that ho went into It reluctantly. H.nvlng realized the character of the challenge, however, he felt it was a thing not to be done in any halt-hearted way, as the lite ot Great Britain, her honor, tne fate ot the Empire and the destiny ot the human race hung on tW issue of the war. After pointing out that while there might be difficulties ahead, the way through would, in the premier's belief, be a short one and that Uie worst was over. Mr. Lloyd George continued. Still Had Reserves "When we suffered the reverse ot JMarch 31, we still had large reserves in this country. The Germans did not know it, I have already expressed gratitude to those who criticised the government on the ground that there was no resources. These people had successfully misled the Germans. "An additional fact that depressed the Germans was the advent of the Americans, There is no finer feature in the history of E5nglish industry than the transport of the Americans across the Atlantic. The Germans did not e.vpect more than two divisions. That was another nyscalculation. "Hundreds of thousands are there now and the Germans know it. They arp the advance guards of 10,000,000 ot the finest material in the world." After noting � the comparative lightness ot the casualties in the last advance of the British, the premier mide his reference to the question of peace and went on to point out some lessons from the present struggle. Lessons of the War The first lesson taught By the war, he said, was the immense importance of maintaining the solidarity of the British Empire. There must be healthier condition sin the workshops, more attention to the schools, he insisted. The best conditions must be initiate^, for production. It is idle to pretend- that this vast has taught us nothing," Mr. Lloyd George continued. "We want neither reaction nor revolution, but sound, well'-advised; bold' reconstruction. Win the �ft'ar first,'  but when peace comes I don't want the nation to be taken unawares. "There are disturbing symptons all I over Europe which those at home will be wise to note and provid.3 against." KAiSER QUOTES Amsterdam. Sept. 12.-The Kaiser in his speech at Essen today said: Believe me, it is not easy for me to bear every day the anxiety and re-spoivsibllity for a nation of 70,000,000. and for more than four years to be a spectator ot all the difficulties and increasing distress of the people." .The emperor then referred to the German empress, who, "by God's assistance again is on the road to te-covery." He recalled the pas.'iages in the Bible; "Cast thy burden upon the Lord and He shall sustain thee." And "but seek ye first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these , things shall be added unto you." The emperor then added: "How can we please God and soften His heart? By doing our duty-In making our fatherland free-consequently it is our duty to hold out with all our strength in the fight against our enemies." "Each one of us have received his appointed task from on high. You at' your hammer; you at your lathe and 1 on my throne. We must all, however, build on God's assistance. Doubt is the greatest ingratitude toward the Lord and now I ssk you all simply and honestly: Have we then really ground for doubt? "Just look at the four years of war What immense achievements we have behind us. Half the .world stood against us and our loyal allies and now we have peace with Russia and peace with Roumania, Serbia and Montenegro are. finished. "Only in the west do we stiil fight and is it to be thought that good God will abandon us there at the last moment. "\\'e should be ashamed ot the taint-heartedness which comes when one gives credence to rumors. From the facts, whish you yourselves have the facts, which you yourselves a flrin belief - lit ^6 tuture of your fatherland. ; "^We oft6t) at homo and at the tfont, in cHurch ahd Id the ol)en air, have sung 'Bin Peste Burg Ist Unser Gott.'
