unions of the principal industries of
the country, declared the government
wished to have assistance and advice
of tho employers' association and
trades unions as to provision for the
carrying out of pledges given by the
government in March, 1915. At that
time tho unions were requested to re
lax during the war Certain union prac

Provision must be made, he said, for
conditions which are now arising in

fact that with change from munitions

level of wages, due to tho high cost of
living, should be maintained for at
least six months, unless altered by
agreement between various parties

Germ Eludes Bacteriologists
And Health Authorities
The influenza epidemic continues un
abated. Us ravages are not confined
; to tills city or state or oven to tho
United Statos, and cable reports indi
cate that it is rapidly spreading over
I the civilized world. It has baffled med
; ical skill to an unusual extent and has
, claimed more victims perhaps than
any other.epidemic in a scorfc of years.
The germ has eluded tho bacteriolo
gists and medical men now agree that
the best cure is prevention.
The surest prevention is to build up
the bodily powers of resistance and to
get the system in the best physical
condition possible. It is now uuiver
I sally agreed that It Is possible to pcr
I feet tho powers of resistance of the
I human system so that it can throw off
I almost any infection not excepting;
It has been discovered that persons
who are weak and rundown are "the
earliest vietims, and if you find your
self tired or weak and losing flesh, or
if you are In a generally rundown con
dition and bolow your normnl weight,
this warning should be heeded prompt-
t If you are in this condition nothing
on earth will build you up and
strengthen you like Tanlac, which con
tains the most powerful tonic proper
ties known to science. As a recon
structive tonic and system builder it ia
without an equal and contains the very
elements needed by the system to give
you fighting strength to ward off the
influenza germ. This is a statement
of facts and is supported by the recog
nized authorities and reference works,
including the United Stales dispensa
tory antl the Encyclopedia Brittannica
and leading textbooks used in the
school of medicine. This statement is
further proven by tho fact that millions
of persons who have actually taken
Tanlac have testified to its extraordi
nary merit ns a medicine, and by tho
fact that Tanlac is today having the ;
greatest sale of any tonic on the Amer
ican market, over eleven million bot
tles having been sold within the past
Tanlac Is also the ideal strengthen
ing tonic for persons who nre suffer
ing from tho after-effects of influenza,
grippe or bronchial troubles and hun
dreds of thousands are using it daily
with the most gratifying results,
In connection with the Tanlac treat
ment it Is necessary to keep the bow

High Deputy Commissioner of the
What is really characteristic of this
great war is the co-operation among
the nations fighting against the Cen
tral Empires. This war. which had Its
origin in the long-cherished desire of
the German emperor and the German
people lo become the masters of the
whole world, and which began as a
ruthless invasion by German troops of
the territory of their neighbors, very
soon lost its character of war for con
quest and for territoial annexation.
Not only countries were at war but the
civilization represented by those coun
tries. Principles which the civilized
w,orld considered as essential to tho
moral life ot nations as well as of in
dividuals wore discarded, trampled
upon, by the invaders.
It was to defend those principles, it
was to maintain the very existence of
their civilization, that more nations
Joined the war, which from that mo
ment became a war for Ideals.
In this great association of the lib
oral countries of the world .against tho
autocracies of Germany. Austria and
their allies each one of the fighting na
tions has done its bit. Each of them
has given to the common cause the
maximum of what it could do, and thou
rosources of all of them 'nave been
pooled in a great unselfish and frec-spii-ited
association. Every member of
thisl assocla.tlonvas ,,willing to have
his contribution managed by a man,
or a body, working for tho benefit of
the community and thus obtaining the
maximum of efficiency.
On the front we have seen that, al
though certain sectors were assigned
to the armies of different nations, units
were shifted from one point to an
other according to the needs of battle.
And shoulder to shoulder they all
fought under a supreme command, ,
each of them zealous lo do as well as ,
and, if possible, better than tho others.
But what has been done on the front
has also been done in the other ac- j
tivitles associated with tho conduct
of tho war. The industrial powers of ,
the different nations ha,ve been so con - j
trolled by their governments as to be I
used, with the maximum efficiency, for !
military success. Raw materials were
sent to countries that needed them and
had factories to work them. Accord-'
ing to tho quickest and easiest results. ,
the manufacture of certain classes of j
products was pushed in one country,
delayed in another where other class-1
es oi pruuiicLs migiu ul- uwuiui ui
quicker made. j
The financial powers as well as the
industrial ones of the different coun
tries have also been controlled and
pooled for the success of the war. Need
I recall the financial help given by
Great Britain to her allies, and for the
last eighteen months the splendid as
sistance given-to all her associated in
the war by the United States, thanks
to the Liberty loans, which, each time
increasing their amount, gave the peo
pie of this country opportunities, which
they splendidly seized, to make their
money flow for this great cauGo?
In all, branches of war activities we j
have seen a great, an inspired co- j
operation, and through this co-operation
the war has been won.
And, now that we near the end of
the. war, we feel that such co-operation
must not cease. We arc going to
be confronted with problems so vast
and so difficult that if we do not treat
them with tho same methods that wo
have employed toward the war prob
lems we shr f come to a failure, a
material failure, and, which is still,
more Berious, a failure of our princi
ples. We aro looking forward now to the
time, so intensely desired, when this!
war will be a thing ot the past. We
have, during tho war, hailed our lead
ers and your great leader whon
they said after this "War there must be
no other war; that justice must rule as
well as peaco among men of good will;
that every nation I do not speak, of
those that have done all that ovil :
that every nation, great or. small, will
have the same rights and the same
chances, according to the energy and
ability of its men; that they will be
united in a great leaguo, or society,
governed by law and justice. Plow are
wo going to make this a reality?
Among tho many problems which t
we shall have to face, here is one ;
perhaps the most serious of all: the j
restoration of the devastated regions, i
How are we going to work a,t this in J
the spirit of our principles? Tho war g
has carried terrible devastation. The
enemy has succeeded in putting whole
regions, which were producing coal or
Iron, where big factories were equip
ped to produce Iron, steel or copper or 5
sugar or cloth or machines, Into the if
utter Impossibility of producing any- J
thing for several years. Thus the coun
tries to which these regions belonged

j ilu" world, Vhese countries, which, had
their share before the war, will not1
havo it back again for a long time. Is
it just that, after a war fought in com
mon for the same cause, certain coun
tries should suffer a lasting disaster?
Is it not tho duty of all. if there is any
meaning in the words "Society of Na
tions," lo help restore the devastated
regions to their former state of pros
perity? Do we not feel compelled to
cooperate for that purpose, as we havo
cooperated for the war?
AntUdo you not think that in order
to solve that problem w ought to look
to it as business men, and that, as In
business wo draft technical and finan
cial programme before starting, , we
ought to devote a new leaf In our book
of accounts to that problem?
On tho side of liabilities we should
write tho debt of Germany. 1 do not
mean that Germany will pay her en
tiro debt. I do not think she could. BUt
this 13 no reason for not making an ac
count of her debt. It is a sound thing
to make that account, and to add
figures and fig
On the side of assets let" us write
down tho contributions of those who
will have to pay, or who are willing to
pay. ' .
Contribution of Germany first. Of
cour3o she will havo to pay. How
much? That is not my business lo
investigate. But I imagine that thero
will be several ways in which Ger
many will contribute to tho restora
ti6n of what she has destroyed besides '
her contribution in money.
A great part of the equipment or;
the factories has been carefully taken I
away and is used In German'. An
other part of it has been destroyed or ,
used in open hearth furnaces or cu
polas. Will not Germany have to give
back what she has stolen? Mines have
been made unfit to produce. Will not
Germany have to contribute monthly,
at cost of production, the amount of
coal or of ore that these mines would
have produced, until thoy are again
fit to work?
Then comes the contribution of the
; devastated countries themselves. I
do not know what Belgium, Serbia and i
Poland, which have been totallv In-:
vaded, will be able to do after the war.
1 1 can only speak for France. And
I can say proudly that the men of
France whojiavc shown such energy
in the war will show the same energy
in reconstruction. Franco needs help.
Franco is hard up. She is not bank
rupt. She still liar, many assets. She
will slart work and feel sure that in
a few years she will be able to pay
back the loans which she has been
and is still needing badly and which
her allies and associates have been
advancing so generously.
Thirdly will come the contributions
of the other countries. The countries
in company witli which we have been
fighting, the United States and Great
Britain, are preparing to contribute,
taking into consideration first their
duly as associates In that great en
terprise which has been the. liberation
of the world, toward some of their
partners: and secondly, their special
duty toward the nations which have
given the coalition its battlefiolds
where all of us have fought for the
independence of our countries.
But I think that the neutrals also
ought to contribute. They have not
suffered from the war as have the
belligerents. Some of them have be
come richer. Have they not something
to pay when they join the Society of
Nations- to the fund of restoration in
that great co-operation for tho build-
ing of a new world?
May I before closingVsay a few words
mor6 ""about the reconstruction?
Speaking only for France, this is how
j the work appears 'to me.
I First, reconstruction of houses and ;
buildings. You know that big cities
like Arras, Amiens, Cambrai, St, Quen
tin, Peronce and thousands of villages
have- been wiped out. This means
dwellings. municipal buildings,
churches, and so on. This alone would
be a huge problem.
Second, agricultural restoration. In
the war zone the soil has been so ter
ribly ploughed by the shells that the ;
cultivatable layer in certain parts has ,
been completely removod. In other
parts trees have been cut down; no M
crops, no fruit in large areas. How
will this be restored to cultivation?.
This Is another great problem.
Third comes the industrial restora- :
tion. Factories havo been destroyed,
the machinery taken away to Ger- i
many, the brick work pulled down and '
tho bricks used in the trenches. Hun- ' t
dreds of thousands of workmen, when 1 '
the war is over, will not find again
the places where they used to earn j
their living. This must be restored in
the minnimum time. Another prob . I
lem of first rate Importance. . i
Fourth. ships. Before the war '.
France had aanerchant marine of 2,- :
500,000 gross tons. The submarines ;
had sunk up to the 1st of .Tulv, 191S, .
700,000 tons. There remained at that i
date only 1,800,000 gross tons, of
which one-half were cargo carriers. '
During the war the shipyards havo
been diverted from their natural use
When it was found necessary in the i
beginning of 1915 to manufacture an Tl
enormous amount of ammunition the j
machine shops of tho shipyards were fj
transformed for that purpose. Besides fm
which, we had no raw material lo 19
make steel plates. As a result our a
shipyards have done . almost nothiri;
Now. in order to restart rapidly jf
France must develop commerce and a
have av fleet In order to develop her m
colonies to the maximum she must m
have ships. Among the numerous dc- m
mands for aid that France will have fjj
to make upon the United States none e
will perhaps be more eager and more ft
necessary, than, those concerning the i'i
restoration of her commercial fleet, -J 6
ships and steel plates for her ship-
yards. Ili '
As we talk of such problems and ' i
discuss the after-war, does it not seem F
that we are near entering a new world, ft j
a world which seemed very far away f
only four months ago? i :
Let us look forward with the utmost f
confidence to this new world, which i
will be a world of justice and of hap-
piness jf we only will say strongly
that it should be so; if we stand firm 4
ly by our principles; if we "co-operate
in peace time in the same spirit as
in war time.
