WHAT WE CAN DO IF WE WILL. SOME LESSONS TO BE LEARNED. MOST GIGANTIC BISINESS CONCERN IN WORLD. "The truth is that we have none of us known ourselves what we. were canable of under the stress of war until we tried," says the "Westminster Gazette."' "Two rears ago it would have' been considered a total impossibil-' ity that this country could .have be tween four and five millions of men s'erving in Army and Navy, and mil lions more occupied solely in muni-I tions and in construction and repair for the Navy, without bankrupting 'the country and bringing civil life to .a standstill. We have done it, and in addition nrovided vast .sums of money for our: Dominions and Allies. "The discovery that we can do it is of vast importance for peace ad w~ell as war; and we hope the grand experience of the munition works will show us that we' can so organise our industry as greatly to increase production .and wages, and yet.'eive a large margin for: leisure ' and hap ,piness, when the war strain is...

THE esfer grgus PUBLISHED EVERY TUESDAY. . KALGOORLIE, DEC. 19. ].916. PEACE BLUFFS AND NEUTRALS. The Gorman peace overture, ab surd as it seems to us in so far as its te ams have been revealed, serves a three-fold purpose for its authors. First and foremost, the proposal set out in t e Rteichstag with Ith most transparent humbug and most sickening hypocrisy about "human ity"---is presented to the German people as & concession to their comn plaints and: miseries through the war. It solemnly- reiterates thi? blatant lie that Germany began the war simply for self-defence, not for' spoliation, robbery and oppression. It professes abhorrence of war, and blasphemously calls God to witness that the Keaser's one aim, object and 'ideal is peace and progress. If the Allics refuse the "hand of sanity" thus extended, then the German people are called upon to believe that it is (the Entente-noti the two Kaisers and Ihe Sultan who condemn their subjects to mass war levies, famine, financ...
