At the moment the most interesting War news to canadians is the announcement of the Safe arrival in England of the Canadian expeditionary Force of men. In the transportation of so Large a Force across the Atlantic there was a considerable element of danger. If the people of Canada did no worrying it was he cause of Timeir Complete Confidence in the ability of the British Navy to Convoy the Fleet of troop ships safely to port. That Confidence has been amply vindicated. News of the Pas Sage and particulars of the Landing Are still lacking with Little likelihood that much will come to hand until letters Are received by mail. while we shall have to Content our selves with the knowledge that our boys Are in England and Are under going drilling at some Inland place Salisbury Plain. It is expected that three months of drilling will precede the appearance of the Canadian troops on the fighting lines. That time comes Canada will know what it is to be at War. A Large proportion of our people have not Heen ahle As yet to realize that we Are participators not spectators in the most desperate War the world has Ever seen. Professor of the University of free Burg whose name until a few weeks ago was unknown to the majority of britons.

In his late boyhood he was overtaken with a terrible calamity a fever from which he suffered left him Stone deaf incurably and for Ever and he was Cut off from the career of action and War which he had hoped for. Later in life he wrote there Are men who Are Doo med to pass their lives on broken wings because some malevolent Chance has excluded them from thai sphere in which alone they could accomplish the highest that is in them to do he came to the University of Bonn in 1851 and following the usual course of study of a Young German became absorbed in the intellectual activities of the place. He made the acquaintance of the Patriot poet Arndt. Tie under the influence of Dahl the historian of Denmark. In 1859 he became a teacher at Leipzig and his inaugural Effort was a trea Tise on the state which in effect was an abstract justification of monarchy. The essence of the state he argues outraged by Britain s pre Eminence. Let there be mistake that a deep antipathy to England Suchke and his friends.

He attributed Junglan a s Success in the struggle for Power to Germany s pro occupation with higher and More spiritual ends. Had Germany not been absorbed in such pursuits and the civil religious strife engendered by that absorption she Mig it in the 17th and Isth centuries have established a Gorman Empire extending Over the Balkans As far As the Indus. He believed that England s energies throughout the Isth and 10th centuries had been devoted consistently to the suppression of Prussia As soon As her future Power had been suspected. But behind All these beliefs lies the intense conviction that Britain s Power out of All proportion to her real strength or to her Worth or value whether that Worth be considered m the political the social the intellectual. Or the moral sphere. To him the whole fabric of British civilization was a Sham in this world of ours a thing that is wholly a Sham wholly Mav endure for a time but cannot in of the British.

Its fall with in the next few Days would have a direct effect upon the Campaign in France. Apart from the Mora effect which would be considerable this re sult would release two Hundred thous and men for service at the reinforcement that might create problems for the generals of the Allied forces. The one circumstance that suggests that perhaps things Are not so Des Perate As the dispatches indicate is the admitted appearance at Antwerp of a Relief expeditionary Force wit i heavy guns these reinforcements Are presumably British and further it May be assumed that they Are of considerable strength. The allies would either leave Antwerp to its Fate or virtue of its moral Quality the author Ity of the state is final and without Appeal. He became a Friend of Bis Rock and he plunged into the Strug in of the latter to assert the prussian Ascendancy Over Germany which was then in Progress. He became a Mem Ler of the Reich Stag and wielded an influence Akin perhaps to that of John ill in British politics.
