STATES' ROUND THE CIRCLE GREAT GENEROSITY OF THE WAR Sir Herbert Ames, in his speech on The Kusi'iau forces la the vicinity! Friday evening last made mention of of Vlina, are sow almost entirely sur-j lue great generosity of the American rounded by Teutons, and ihe hlg people in looking tho Belgians, army of nearly lialf a million men is j it a wonderful record and through having a difficult time in extricat- j au history will stand to the credit of ius itself from the loop which the: tae nation across the line. We know Germans have succeeded in throwing that the preponderance of opinion about them. The German advance amongst the American people is with since the capture of VHoa has been the Allies, though there Is a very nat- so rapid that the Czar's forces have-1 desire to keep out of the con- flict What will eventually happen, only tima and events can tell. The real sympathy of the people is de- monstrated in this matter of Belgian reliaf. The article in the Saturday) Evening Post, from which Sir Her- bert Ames quoted, gives a striking Idea of the extent of this relief. Here is what it says: "The- Commission for Relief In Bel- gium, with headquarters occupying two floors' space in the big Umpire 71 Broadway, and having more than a hundred branches throughout the States, is providing two meals a day for men, women and children, 3000 miles away, at a cost Qf a month, and has given its pledge to continue to Is a day until been able to offer little resistance and are concentrating their efforts In getting out of the predicament The capture of Ytlna marks a wonderful advance since the taking of Warsaw. The Teutonic forces are now over 100 miles east of Warsaw, and further on the road to Petrograd. Between tha German lines and the capital, how- ever, lies a vast stretch lake coun- try, covered with thick marshes. Over these the Russians are able to tight to advantage in the winter months, and the German advance towards Pet- rograd can scarcely proceed much further this year. Reports came yesterday of as at- tack bv German forces on SerMa, but mis given its pledge t supply those two meal: there are ao details of the movement. the According to yesterday's dispatcnes fte Q[ conscription is unlikely in England, at j missioil nad provided foodstuffs and least for another year.

WhSe the agita- tion has not been pronounced, it cer- tainly has been quiet' but seemingly, very effective. This awful war is bringing about a complete change in our views. Women daring the war hare made many sacrifices. As Sir Herbert Ames they have been the martyrs. They have not only "willingly allowed their loved ones to got to the front, and fight their conn- try's battles, but they have giadJy un- dertaken the labor of men, so that could enlist. In this eonntrj- there ig a particularly strong reason for giving the vote to women. The female of the species has faced bravely all the hardships of pioneer life. She has gone into the lonely places and made a habitation for the male and the family. Why should ghe not share in the responsibilities .of government? Why should she not participate In tbe settlement of great She is as fully interested in them as the men. Many arguments be advanced that women will not give an intelligent consideration to public issues. They will be al'fecte'd In their decisions by motives that are hot related to the questions at issue; they will vote as their husbands do, la order that there will be no family and other objec- tions will be brought forward. Considering the character of some of the 'men now casting votes, we do not hesitate to say that there are thousands of women who have an in- comparably better right to vote than certain classes who already posseii tbe franchise. They wlH use in- telligence in giving their decision, nt the polling booth. We thai with the right to vote, will that a higher type of it placed in our legislatures, They, will also demand the adoption of metunne for the moral and .material .advance- ment of the province that wroU be very slow coming, if left to tiw 4e- clslon of men alone.

S. Babcock) At the outbreak ol the present war, many people ol experience ivere con- vinced that fighting would be con- ducted at exceptionally long range, the armies being miles apart and hardly visible to each other, even in large bodies, by the naked eye alone. High power long range infantry rifles and ordinance of from five to fifteen miles range mads it seem nearly oar- tain that one 'army could not advance openly toward the other to any point within the range ol lire. The great development o! the aeroplane and other air-craft inado surprise at- tacks, in force, next to impossible. So, altogether it scorned certain that this war would be fought out at long range. But, one very important! element entered into this war as It] has entered nu other war before, and! completely reversed the situation. stead of bsing fought ar far greater i range than any 'pvevioua wars, it is i to a very great extait, being lought out at a far shorter range than any previous wars except those of dnHd- ly ancient history. Before the war had been many weeks old tho sap- pers developed science to a point where 11 K-oi'Sht tivo contend- ing armlei 'face to ftce at distances raids ot even feet instead of miles. Tie icicnce of trench digging has been developed to such an extent that each army worms Its way through the grouui toward the other, invisibly, until their fore- mcut trenches parallel tbe enemy at only a few yards. When such points are the men in the firing trench ol each etde !Mori to the only practicable kind of ancient and antiquated warfare of throwing bombs at one another by hand or by catapault, as circumstanc- es require.
