January 8th, uuder the captions
"()w n up, Asquitli" "la e *! >
tmili -1 low we stand in th*1
first week of 1916."
Mr. Hales, a strong antl-Con-
scriptlonist. reiterate* his view
that Gsrin -nv Is now at the mercy
of the Allies.
Hi* wh i fears t> frice the
truth bold I) is more than hall
beaten This nation is not a
fraii] lo fa li truth, and the
whole truth. I her-- are men
who . i"r nanuf ac t u r i ng li -
even day, and sailing then pro
i^. p by the ii line -if truth, in
ofcl'-r that the nation may be
deceived, and us liberties be
filched fi "ii it for there is, and
long lias been, a wai within a
w ii raging in our midst It is
,-i grim and a ten ible truth that
the n ition'a scci I foes would
rather see Germany come out ->f
this struggle little, if any, the
worse for the -"deal of war.
than thai our own people sh >uld
stand it the declaration of
Peace strong enough, steadfast
enough to demand ami obtain
the reforms political, social
and domestic lo wliii h the\
are entil led, and for which tin y
li ive been groping blindly, but
ii ii .1 -i igl>, for gener a t ion s.
Those of our men who have
Cone forth to li 'lit hive this
duty to perform: they have to
beat, the G ' man foe unt d the
greatest military monster of all
time is trodden into the mire
They I ave to li ?hl until not a
vestige of power remains to the
despots who would put CJ'ves
upon the world and thionemui-
dei in the seat of justice. Hut
those who remain at home have
a s leiim duty.
OUR Dl'lY TO THE
FIGHTING LINE.
()ui- duty is not less than
theirs who stand in the trenches,
and we must pun e,w e are made
of mettle as goi d as that from
which tic \ w, re fashioned; we
must be reads to make personal
sa nfice-. we must he ready, if
need < to stand up and fi^ht
like men, and if our li\ es pa)
fulfi it w i 11, "What is life
ivithout honour, what is death
with ii' shame?" We have got
lo see to it that, whilst our
coincides are awaj fighting for
us, their liberties are not stolen
from them They left this land
a l>anj -d free men- shall thc\
'"in-- !i ick lo it and find them
si Ives 1" trayedj shall Ihey re
turn to find that the very thing
lhe\ went forth to crush, that
the world might be fiee, has
been riveted upon them? If so,
there is n >' one of us who will
lare look squarely into the
brave, ch ar p\ s of the khaki
lest that will in the end come
back, We arc told there are
half a million men who should
have enlisted who have not
done so; then, >f that be true, is
that a reason why thirty odd
millions of people should be
put under the thumb of a class
who are km in soul ar.d in pur
p BS lo the Prussian Junkers?
It is the first twist of the chain
that is going to cripple British
liberties for all time and make
us as Germany was, and isa
heated, brutal, semi bestial na
tion. We have got to look the
Iruth squarely in the face. This
wail about the unmarried men
is mi!', i.iised to lull the marri
ed men to sleep.
NO CAUSE FOR PANIC.
There is not a shadow o'
cause for panic. Our worst and
m st formidable foes are dwel
lers in our own t' nts, and if
there were no subterranean work
afoot we might well he satisfi
ed. We have four million vol
iiuteers with the colours. We
have legions in ire coloured men
willing to volunteer. Our Fleet
is mistress of all the waters of
the world t xcept the Kiel
Canal and the I > ndanelles.
( tut arinn s >n till " stern front
are massed and ready foi what
in ly c< ime. Francs holds her
bordei line impregnable behind
barriers ol tiiple steel. Russia
holds the enem> on the Polish
front so grimly locked that he
cannot makes forward move,
and dare not now hazard a re
tieat which he knows would de
vi lop into a disaster. We fail
ed at the Dardanelles. Mow
and why we failed has not yet
been written. When it is writ
ten, a new page in British his
to; \ will follow swiftly, Why
I is Mr, Asquitli never dared to
tell, though frequently pressed,
tin name of the Commanding
Officer who turned certain vic-
tory at Gallipnli into humiliat
ing retreat and made vain the
son ifice of 200 000 heroes* lives
Why? Mr Asquitli knows why.
We were beaten therelet us
admit it though we were so
close |o victory that it was all
over bar shouting.
SALOMCA THE STFPPING-
OFF POINT.
In the middle Fast our strate-
gic position is superb At Sal
OiiiCfl we retl in command of
the sea and can strike Hie ene-
mies' li ink when we are ready.
Thei e we stand at the vital spot,
the vulnerable spot. A Napo-
leon would win the war there
in five pitched battles. It is
there we can cut throuf
backbone that connects B
with the Bosphorus; it is tl
we can assemble the armies
all the Allies from all sides,,
from there we can mop up IJ
garia, Austria, Turkey,and tl
match on to Germany; but C
many will not wait for th
When Bulgaria and Turkey f|
the Teuton people will bri
the Kaiser and the Junkers
side and sue for peace. Th'
know what they deserve for tl
deeds of their armies on col"
quered territory They knoJ
what they will get if invadinl
hosts fight on their soil. The)
will not wait for that. Gei
many has been invadad mor^
than once in its history, anc
such memories are' long Is
there cause for us to barter on
iota of our own dearly Wonl
liberties to place ourselves ui.
der the heel of a clique whol
badly need what the tyrant le
ceived at the hands of the
French people in the great Re
volution? All the blame for the
failures of 1915 has been thrown
upon the people, vet the people
have been magnificent. Blunder
has been heaped on blunder in
the field and in the councils by
responsible men The people
have not even murmured. They
have stood it like stoics. They
will stand anything except a
patched up peace made behind
theirbacksthat they will not
stand.
THE GLORY OF'tTHE NAVY.
So completely has our Navy
mastered the enemy that not a
single coaling station is left tQ
them, and never again shall
they possess one if we are true
