The sudden decision of Great Brit ain and America to lift the Russian blockade was probably dictated by advance information of Poland's of Poiand and to prevent if possible an effective alliance between the Germans and the Russians. When the blood-and-iron policy fails to work it is time to turn again to the arts of diplomacy. feat is the unconcealed discorl among the allied representatives who are meeting with the Germans at Spa. the Belgian seaside resor. Since the organization of the first allied peace council, the allied poli cy has been one of drastic terms for the defeated enemy. The French representatives at the Spa confer ence still cling to this policy. Great Britain, on the other hand, which has vast territories close to the Rus- sian territory, sees the need of pre venting an alliance between the Russians and the Germans and of 2 persauding the Bolsheviki to stay out of India.

Hence we find Great Britain pushing for a milder policy toward Germany and the German representatives at tempting to put off final agreements as long as possible, because the nearer the Bolsheviki approach to Warsaw the stronger does their po sition become.

The thing to be explained is that of I since every day poverty, starvation the 10 members which Winnipeg by criminals, or these voters do not believe what has been s« id about the- Winnipeg strike a year ago. and do believe that both the court and the law under which the labor lead ers were convicted violated funda mental justice. The first explana tion seems too far-fetched to be worth anything. It is much more easy to believe that the hue and cry of diloyaltv was set up in Winnipeg to stampede the people into support-J ing the profiteers, as has been done! in so many other parts of the world. The men on the ground could see 0 a Seattle, Wash., presents a situa tion in many respects similar to that of Winnipeg. Its former mayor. Ole Hanson, was praised through out the country as saving the city and perhaps America from revolu tion. Within a year the Hanson re gime was overthrown and now the city council of Seattle has voted money to investigate the methods whereby the Hanson clique unload ed a street car system on the city for a great deal more than it was worth Statistics compiled by an English society on the rsults of the world war place the loss of life at 40,000. 000 people. Of these 10,000,000 or more were slain in battle or died of wounds and of disease there. The figures for the different European countries run as follows: European Russia 13,000.00 Germany 6.300.00" Austria-Hungary 5,800,000 France 3,340,0Ou Italy 2.2S0.0OU Great Britain 1.850.000 Serbia 1.650,000 Roumania 510,000 Belgium 375.00a Bulgaria 2 7 5.0 The figures, of course, incuhlc women and children as well as men a conservatives belonging to the pariy majority are which, according to reports, was al-|health tempting to f-ave Canada from a red revolution, and four are liberals |j! who stand somewhat betv.-een the conservatives and the labor group.

Their opinion as expressed by their votes should be worth more to us than all tho noise of the "kept" press. It is also significant that our daily paper have had little or nothing to say about this recent Winnipeg election. disease due to the war still takes a heavy toll of human life. Also of the population of the war countries which escaped death the probably impaired in and working ability by rea. on of the, war strain. One of the favored methods oi defending present day abuses in pol itics and business is that of ac knowledging evils in the past but claiming that the successors of tlu' former evildoers have thoroughly reformed. B. C. Forbes, editor of System, whose chief business it is to make Wall street vampires look like decent citizens, is the latest to try his hand at this argument. And many of our large daily and weekly papers are copying his effusions. Here, for instance, is part of his confession: 'In the days of Jay Gould and Jay Cooke and other stal warts of Civil war times and later, high finance was often pretty lov down finance. No amount of trick ery or chicanery was considered too outrageous if only it served to knock out- the other fellow.

Dept low the belt was the rule, not the exception. Many railroads were not run for the benefit of their stock holders or the benefit of shippers, but solely for the benefit of those controlling them. The financial gladiators made their killings, not from legitimate earnings and divi dends, but from stock market flim flamming. It was verily the day of 'the public be damned.' "The largest fortunes were creat ed by watered stock plenteous)} manufactured in the process o! forming mergers, combinations and trusts." Now listen to Mr. Forbes with re gard to present day conditions: "To day, no man in his sober senses would dare attempt to corner cotton or wheat or any other commodity entering into daily life of the people. Even if the law can be circumvent ed, the wrath of the public would bi dreaded sufficiently to cause eve: the brazenest buccaneer to desist." Such a statement and many mtm like it are belied by facts which only the most careless citizen could miss The so-called "wrath of the public" was never less powerful than today, because the two means of express ing wrath, the newspapers and the two political parties, are owned by the buccaneers. There is no com modity needed by the people that h not cornered at the present time, ex cept air and water. Mr. Forbes must know this, because he needs su gar and other foods and clothinf as the rest of us do. Consequently, his only excuse must be lying foi those who provide his income just as men like him lied in the Civi' war days and later when the evil deeds, he now admits, were perform ed. Those who would like to follow the example of the saints of old in standing for the truth as they see it even at the expense of martyrdom have as much opportunity today a. ever. But they must also remember that the saints of old did not work with general approval or the praisf of what then corresponded to on leisure class and the kept press. Only July 2, Rev. Nelson Are good. a Baptist clergyman, was whipped by a "citizens' committee" of Pine Bluff, Ark., because he dar ed to come to that town to speak be fore railroad employes. A friend with him received the same treat ment. Perhaps this later-day mar tyr was stirring up the people, but we remember this was the chief of fense on which Christ was convict ed by a court which combined both the political and religious leader ship of his day. If a man were to go to steel trust territory to preach against working seven days in the week he would 1h found guilty of unlawful assem blage, if not run down by mounted policemen before arrest. If he were to speak against child labor in cot ton mills in southern cotton mill territory he would find himself ar rested as a vagrant and forced into a labor camp. If he were to whisper in many a Kansas and Montana town that farmers have a right to organ ize he would be fortunate to get off with tar and feathers. And everywhere and in all walk of life we can find men who are per secuted because fail to agree vith the standards dictated by the most unscrupulous. "Vet we beat it lot of noise to the effect that out country is perfect in righteousness, needing only unquestioned support for things as they are. Perhaps the world has always appeared perfect to those on top, but the great he roes of the past did not accept, th? standards of the "on top" people.
