WILSON'S NEUTRALITY. Justice Russell, of Halifax, N.B., addres sing the Canadian Club at St. John, N.B., Hpoke in strong terms on the attitude of the United States Government in regard to the European war. 'I have long been an admirer of Presi dent Wilson, but I was disappointed at his , weak and washy prayer for neutrality, I which, I am pleased to say, has hardly found I any support among the great organs ot public opinion In the States,' he said. 'I would have liked to see him rise to a higher standard, and pass judgment as to which side is in the- right in the 'war. If he could not belp with the United States' Fleet and Army he could have passed the official opinion of the States as a party, to the Hague Convention.' 'But does that body have nothing to say concerning such a sanction of the, destruc tion of Louvaln and Rhelms? ' Should bombs be thrown on Innocent noncomba tants?

MORAL POVERTY. LEADERS OF MEN FAIL. NO VOICE ABOVE THE FRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 20 March 1915

MORAL POVERTY. LEADERS OF MEN FAIL. NO VOICE ABOVE THE FRAY. A very remarkable article appears In the Manchester Gunrdiun, signed 'L.T.H.,' and .entitled, From Ambrose to Mcrcler. The writer was probably Mr. L. T. Hobhouse, the well-known professor of London Uni versity, ami It is a scathing Indictment of 'the moral poverty of tho leaders of men, I which Is one of the most notable features of I the present world crisis. I A TERRIBLE CONVULSION. 'The moral poverty of the world must have struck many of us since tho war be gan,' writes L.T.H. 'Not any moral pov erty In the rank and file.

DOCTORS AT THE FRONT. HEAVY GERMAN LOSSES.' A mcssugo from Germuny states that up to the beginning of December Germany had lost on -active service 119 military doctors dead, which is twice as great as tho loss suffered during the Franco-Prussian war.

TURKEY'S VIEW OF IT. PUTS BLAME ON RUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 20 March 1915

TURKEY'S VIEW OF IT. PUTS BLAME ON RUSSIA. Turkey lays the blame squarely upon Russia, wc ure told, and the Sultan is at great pains to make it most clear that he Is defending rus country and championing the rights of the whole Moslem world ,cntirely of his own voll- ' tion, and not at the dictation of Germany or any other Power. The latest papers from Turkey endorse the correctness of this view. for they contain the Sultan's ??imperial proclamation' to his army. As reported in the Constantinople Tasviri Efkyar, this docu ment runs In part as follows:—* 'While I was observing tho duties of neu trality, the Russian Black Sea lleet approach ed the mouth of the Bosphorus to lay mines, and opened fire upon my ships, which were engaged in target practlcc. 'I looked for an explanation from Russia of an act so opposed to all 2-rinciplcs of In ternational law, but, instead of offering one, Kussla, and then France and England, broko off diplomatic relations with my Government.

DOLLAR DIPLOMACY. AID TO THE ALLIES. GERMAN PRESS RAGE. WILSON DENOUNCED AS PROBRITISH. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 20 March 1915

DOLLAR DIPLOMACY. AID TO THE ALLIES. GERMAN PRESS RAGE. WILSON DENOUNCED AS PRO BRITISH. The Allies arc tho ones who profit by America's present policy of unrestricted trado In war material, and German-American opinion, as expressed by their press, is unani mously against these shipments of guns and ammunition intended to take German lives. The Milwaukee Gcrmanla-Herold writes:— ' 'Senators Hitchcock and Works havo thoir hearts (n tho right pluce. In their eyes overy dollar gained by this unworthy weapon trauing ib Dioou-money. rney see in overy implement of destruction sold to England a I testimony that this dirty lust for profit has | turned' us into a nation of hypocrites, which, ! while professing to work for the restoration of peace, is really only reckoning how much It can gain by a shameful traffic.' , An almost universal feeling seems to per- ! vade the German- American press that neu trality is merely a name; a 'Dollar Neu trality,' the New-Yorker Herold calls it, and goes ...

FEEDING THE GERMAN ARMY. THE FIELD KITCHENS. All civilised nations have long recognised that food supplies play utmost as important u part in the winning or losing of battles as ammunition, marksmanship, or personal iravery. . The Germans have not failed to appreciate this point, and their methods of feeding soldiers are scientifically carried out under the direction of dietetic specialists, who luivo uevoteu years to tne study of the 'oud requirements of fighting men. Tho dally ration includes 26oz. of fresh ? read or J7oz. of biscuit, 13oz. of fresh meat or To z. of smoked meat, 4oz. of rice or 8oz. of Hour or 52oz. of potatoes, loz. of salt, nearly lo/.. of roasted coffee or one-tenth of an ounce of tea, and *soz. of sugar. For cooking food the Germans use Inge nious field-kitchens. These are attached to motor vehicles which follow the troops from point to point.

£150,000,000 MISLAID. GERMAN MONEY ASTRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 20 March 1915

£150,000,000 MISLAID. GERMAN MONEY ASTRAY. . Germany has mislaid £150,000,000 In gold, and Herr Hugo Wenke, a statist of repute In Berlin, asks In tho Tageblatt for Informa tion as to Its hiding place:— long ago the German press was au thorised to make the announcement that tho coffers of the Imperial Bank contained £100.000,000 In gold coin. But as in all i^,uv,vw,uui» is in circulation, the author!- j ties had to accept the view that £150,000,000 still remained in private hands. This seems to be erroneous, because 'they cannot havo exact particulars as to how much has been melted down for Industrial purposes. The reason why gold coin is used in this rosj eel instead of gold bars Is that the gold smith can only obtain the unmlnted gold In l-u k — besides carriage, he loses interest on the money expended, whereas with gold coin he has at one and the same time his raw material and a means of payment. The authorities will be bound to admit that a portion of thu supposed £150,000,000 i...

SHIPBUILDER'S SERMON. Mr. William H. Raebum. of the shipbuild ing firm of Raebum and Verd, Glasgow, gave this little sermon at the end of an interesting article on shipbuilding:— 'it Is all very well to talk of charity and forgiveness, but even the Scriptures do not enjoin forgiveness apart from repentance. It will be time enough to talk about forgive ness when Germany repeats in dust and ashes, and offers full reparation for the ! crimes and atrocities she has committed. 'We may be losing a good customer In her, but the great British Empire has all the facilities and opportunities it can desire or require within its own limits and those of its Allies and friends. ? The peace which we all look for, and which we aro determined to fight for to the last gasp, will rid Europe of the constant menace which has been such a drain on Its resources for so long, and kept everything in a condition of uncer tainty.

DO BATTLES PRODUCE RAIN? EXPERT ON POPULAR FALLACY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 20 March 1915

00 BATTLES PRODUCE RAIN? EXPERT ON POPULAR FALLACY. The prolonged spell of rainy weather which closed the memorable year of 1914 has again revived the story that continuous firing of big guns has a direct influence on clouds, and brings about great changes in atmospheric conditions. But, according to scientific In vestigations, the story is a myth. Indeed, it would appear that rain Is just as likely to follow a big sneeze as u cannon report In some quarters, however, so firm 1m the belief that heavy, gun-lire actually produces rain that, four years ago, the First Lord of the Admiralty was actually asked in tho House of Commons whether he would in struct our fleet to carry out their heavy-gun pructlcc at some period of the year other than in the middle of harvest-time, us serious loss to farmers might bu causcd by thu re Miltnnt heavy rain.
