JURY COULDN'T AGREE. .__v " Newark, N.J., Sept. 21-After six hours' deliberation, tho jury hearing the case of Theodore Benedict "and Edwin S. Preits and William von Katzler, kformer publishers and managing editor of ,the New Jersey Friei Zditung, charged with conspiracy under the espi< nage act, informed the judge In the federal court here tonight that it was unable to agree. gradually tlyy crowd out the wnito settler and ho Is forcod to aell "to them. The tlmo to deal with' this menace Is right now. It is no good for tho government to wait to handle ifcf because the longer the waiting the moro strength they are obtaining. Thero should bo only one system UU: der oho flag, especially at times like these. Should Serve. This speaktr was followed by Mr. J. W. McDonald, who Bald if the Meh-nonitos wanted to stay in Canada they would have to come under the Military Service Act. He rather emphasized the point that it was not a case of tho Mennonites staying out of the country but living up to- the war methods of this country. If they came here to live they should be* made to fight. If a country is worth living in it is worth fighting for. The Mettr nonltes should be made to bear their fair'and proper burden la this war. Mr. ,T. Matheson then gave a splendid and stirring address. He said he did not agree with the last speaker. He did not think any alien enemy should lie allowed in tne country. The Americans did not want them, no more did Canada (cheers). This land of ours was a land of brave men. In 1877 the H.N.W.M.R, a grand fearless body of men came to this country and brought law and order. Following them were the pioneers of the west. Honest upright men, many of whom are with us tonight. From this splendid stock are the thousands of young westerners who\ arc shedding their blood on the fields of France tonight (applause). These bravo lads arc fighting for tile cause of humanity. Kot only are the men sacrificing, but the women of the west also. Their splendid work speaks for itself. The government must have thought them desirable citizens when they disenfranchised them at the last election. If these people called Mennonites don't believe in fighting, then toll them to keep away from here. We don't want them at any price. Another thing, we don't want people living in bunches. It's not good for them. This fair country of ours is worth fighting for and we don't want any people living a; 1 settling here who still possess the German brute in their make-up. The Hon. Clias. Stewart said at a meeting in Calgary, after his return from the other side that the only wry to treat a German was the same as you would a mad dog. I strongly protest against this province of ours being turned into a lazarette or convalescent home for homeopathic treatment of mad dogs. I have great pleasure in moving the following resolution to the government of Canada: "Whereas, we the people' of the town and district of ilacleod, in the province of Alberta, assembled at a public meeting in the town of Macleod, held under the auspices of the Great War Veterans Association of Macleod and the Great War Next-of-Kin Association of Macleod, this 2.0,th day of September, view with no little alarm the settlement in our midst of a people calling themselves "Mennon-ites," who by virtue of certain existing statutory provisions in that behalf, This tiriei of twelve tests is designed to take the uncertainty tut if tirt-buying.

And, whereaa, those same people, while "apparently willing to luxuriate fii all the benefits they derive from British government and protection, are not prepared to give anything in return, but rather persist in fostering among themselves the enemy language ''arid'' customs, on account of which we- believe them to be a serious menace to^all principles which tend to the grtrtvth. of a good and loyal citizenship:': And whereas, there can be no doubt that their'recent invasion of this country was-occasioned by their desiro to ,ev�.de military service in the United States of America, to which, by recent legislation in that country, they had become liable. And whereas, their purchase of large tracts ,6f.valuable land in our immediate vicinity, would threaten to seriously prejudice the rights of soldiers returned and yet to return. And wjiereas, we consider that in so licensingHheh- existence in this country, free anff untrammelled from any responsibility to the Umpire, the government, has acted in a wholly unwarrantable and unjustifiable manner. Now therefore be. it resolved, as follows : (a) That the government be and the same is hereby petitioned to so amend the "Military Service Act 1917" as to bring within its operative scope the said sect of ".Mennonites" and that they he compelled to boar their just share of responsibility to the Empire by contributing to the Expeditionary Force such of their men as are of military af,e and physically fit. And (b) that the teaching of enemy languages and thought be absolutely forbidden in the Mennonite schools which shall in all respects bo made to conform strictly to our laws, and ic) That the Jjominion government take such steps as may be necessary in the premises to prevent the "Mennonites" from acquiring from the government by purchase or otherwise, land at present^, or which may hereafter become vested in the Crown, and that the same so far as is possible be conserved for tho exclusive benefit of soldiers under the terms of "The Soldiers' Land Settlement Act." And (d) That the said sect of "Mennonites" be absolutely prohibited from entering the Dominion of Canada until an enquiry shall be instituted and tho exact status of all "Mennonites" is arrived at. (e) And further that a copy of this resolution be forthwith sent to Sir R. L. Borden, premier of Canada, Hon. J. A. Calder, minister of immigration, Hon. Chas. Stewart, premier of Alber-' ta and H. M. Shaw, M.P. Very Unanimous. Mr. McGowan, who has seen several years' service in the Princess Pats, and who was invalided home from the trenches and is now presi-[dent of tho Great War Veterans, was the seconder of the resolution. He said, "AH we want in this country is Canadians, and 100 per cent at that. These Mennonites were kicked out of Germany,., kicked out of Russia, kicked out of'America, and dumped into Canada. We don't want them. I am speaking now on behalf of the boys over there, boys, who. are sacrificing everything for those at home, but not sacrificing their lives and everything else for the scum of Europe. I know this", the lads over there don't want them, we don't want them, therefore send them back where they belong (cheers). When pur boys are sent back many of them are turned adrift and left to help themselves, while these foreigners are allowed to live In prosperity on tho fat. of tho land and on the best productive land in Alberta." After a hearty discussion the chairman asked all those in favor of the resolution to stand up, and vith one accord every person in the packed hall managed to get on hiH feet. There was not throughout tho whole meeting the slightest sympathy shown to the Mennonites. In fact tho discussion was in trying to make the resolution stronger.
