Buchanan John Torrsnse Director AS THE SITUATION STANDS V.'tiilc the nws up. to indicates that tie German forcc-s arc retiring, abandoning in many cssas -.var ma- te-ial the decisive stags of the battle has yet to be reached. The situation, hov.-sver, is rarticuloriy optimistic, iff the enemy does not appear to be offering much in the way of offensive effort to the advance of tlio Allies. Very little is heard of the German army "with which the Kalsw is pres- ent, and which is apparently in tha region oE the Ardennes between Mouse and Uie Moselle. The uuturo of the country here is difficult, and it may the retiring trcops are ea- dea'voring to effect a jiuiction where, in entrenched positions, probably bat- tls will be given. The siege of Paris nioy ba consider- ed practically abandoned unless any- thiag o! an untoward description takes place, and there is a "ccmc back." This reliaquishiasnt' of tho original German plan is significant. "-MJliUry experts agree that there would not be much of a strategic na- ture in occupying Paris, but it would be a spectacular move whics the Ger- man army wouM be the las; to deny itself were it practicable. The aban- donment, therefore, we must great patriotic gathering in Leth- brld.ee, but because wo believe the moment is rive for a heart to heart talk with our people on their respon- sibilities as citizens, and the sacri- fices they must make in the great crisis which faces civilization and liumoerary in the present war. Not for Hag waving or Jingoistic utter- ances should the meeting .be called, but for a clear, sane and honest pres- entation of our duties at this critical period in our history as a part of the Empire. We are at war but very few seem to realise it. As a part of the Empire we have our duties and responsibilities. We must make sacrifices, if not of our'lives on the battlefield, then in our home, business and civic life. To Impress these re- sponsibilities upon the people it would be well to hold a great meeting and arouse the patriotic spirit of the people to action. So far the patriotic womon of tile city have assumed most of tha responsibilities. They raised the only money yet collected for re- lief and since then they have been providing refreshments for departing troops and are now busy knitting warm things for the soldier boys. What about the men? We can't knit ive can help. It is true we may have contributed a inite on the tag day but what is that compared with the boys who have gone the front, PICKED UP IN ASSING FOR THE BUSY MAN Donald MeMostor, K.C., M.P, has placed his home at Virginia- Water, England, at the disposal of the war office for the use, primarily, If pos- sible, by the Canadian troops. Private. Cos. of tho 80th Rifles, Win- nipeg, who died of typhoid in the mili- tary hospital at Quebec, was little known. He evidently had come to ipeg from some outside point to enlist. He gave his horse as Essex, England, and his age as 29. The farm value of Uie four leading cereal crops of the U. S., together with the value of the hay crop, shows a total increase over Uie value of the same crops last year of according to the U. S. government September crop report.

White- prepared to sacrifice their lives on j man, Quebec, and Charles Graham, the altar of democracy and national righteousness. Only a mere pHtauce. u'e will admit times are hard ami money is scarce, but it is the same story the world over. What we give or do to help must with most of us be a sacrifice. These are days of sacri- fice. The more we sacrifice the bet- ter will be our citizenship, the truer will be our loyalty. Probably all that we can do will be to relieve the home folks, who on account of tho war, have lost their employment and face the prospect of a hard winterY The money raised by the womea on tag Amherst, N.

Ha Application to Othtr ixttlona The Newspaper Publicity enacted ty Congress Sonla time ago, ought to ba applied to many other business orsanlsa- tlojis. This' law provitlea that all publications must flla an aiB- davit wltlutho Postmaster Gen- eral setting foi'th full ilmfotrtia- tion concerning their ownership, mannsomcnt, circulntlon, etc.. A copy of this affidavit must be printed In certain designated Is- sues oC the piper, and a marUed copy thereof Ills3 with the Post- muster General, to do this Trill authorize the Post- master General to deny the use of tho mails to the attending publication. This eliminated many iiowspapar evils, such as .-the paid editorial, the-overstatement of circulation, and hidden own- ership. All this hsa been attained by the simple rem-. edyot publicity I A similar law applied to other organisations would work equal- ly well and would eradicate many eras, much, corruption and mismanagement For instance. If labor organisations were -re- quired: to publish' full informa- tion as to their objects and their transactions, and'to make public en account of their moneys, dues, etc., many abuses that 1st -would be removed. Labor organisations-'should not curry favor frora leglslatu res and Congress any more than business organizations, and they have no. risat to special exemption from anti-trust legislation. A labor union Is a form of labor trust Labor unions orsiinlzeil for- honest aad lawful purposes are necessary and desirable to hold in check encroachments or un- just but when, they invoke the aid of Congress for special exemptions merely copyiiig' unjust methods of other monopolies. Business should be required to give full publicity as to prices, volume of'business, methods of operation, etc., eo as to give each competitor tha risht con- clusions concerning- their par- ticular field of industry. We need publicity of all busi- ness organizations to cure tha evils of miemanaBement, and we need U for labor well, to bring a stop to their frequent abuse and their underhand meth- ods of attaining unlawful ob- jects A law nhich could pro- duce such results would fartajf capital and! labor Into the open field and their dlfferenc-s would be less and they could be settl-d mqra amicably than they now; There is c dealer in your locality who ban- I dies Certsbt-tfed Products. 2f youcottfiult e'ffiUbcclad toeiTe joa foil inform? lon fibODtoyr goods niid will quote you rea- pnccs cm them Be aare tha We stand benlna General Roofing Company won SAW SECRETARY OF WAR VISITED HOS- PITALS WHERE VICTIMS OF THE WAR WERE UNDER TREATMENT London, Sept. Earl Kitchener, the secretary ot state for war, paid a surprise visit on Saturday Thomas hospital and some St. proudest mon today are the hundred or moro sick and wounded soldiers, just back from the firing lino, whom he naw and spoke to. It was just after four o'cmK in the afternoon when the nurses came hur- rying into tiii Alexandra, Florence and Victoria wards with the somc- vrtat cryptic announcement: "A visit from the war office- at In' a trice iurrowcti counterpanes and tumbled sheets were smoothed and tucked in, while the thick slices of bread .and butter and jam, which the patients seem to consume Ell day, were hastily stowed away in bud lockers or placed on window sills and covered with newspapers. Scarcely had the corner man in each ward re- ceived the nurses' parting injunction: "Please keep you legs down and let your bed look when a tall, deep-chested man, who carried him- self straight as a lamp, appeared at tie threshold oi the Alexandra ward, preceded by the senior sister. A sud- d3B thrill of mingled awe, delight and and astonishment, seemed to pene- trate the entire ward. "Why, it's was the sur- prised whisper that ran irom lip to lip. Each patient instinctively straightened his shoulders on his pil- low. Some tried painfully to sit bolt upright in led. It was no slern faced soldier that the eyes of even- patient followed, but a kindly smiling solicitous "civil- ian, in morning dress and carrying a silk hat. Lord Kitchener made a point of stopping at practically every bed in all three wards, inquiring as to each patient's and the na- ture of his wound. His chat with Trooper Craig, of the Royal Irish Dragoon Guards, was typical. "How are you getting on V asked Lord Kitchener in his cheery ringing voice, as he approached the bed, fol- lowed by Sir George Arthur, one of the secretaries. "All. risjht, answered Trooper Craig. your "The Irish Dragoons." "How did you get that hand "My horse threw and stamped on sir, jrat before it was killed by a in a charge in Belgium."
