I Editor of The Tribune Sir It is quite time now for ne to say something and you too, Mr. Editor. Last night I read in your paper a letti r by"Interested" calling on you to take the lead in expression of opinion as to what ought to happen as a result of the recent Hospital Enquiry and report of the Commission. The public just now are worked up to boiling point, and are not prepared to take any sedative; therefore they demand that straight men sures be adopted to put an end to such irregularities as have been practised by re SDOnsible officials of thai Institution, among whom stands out in bold relief the Superintendent. After publication of such a report, to think that the Executive Council and the Governor could allow the management of such an Institution to remain in the present hands is simnly unthinkable. Does the Government realize that the publicare awaiting developments with breathless expectation ? Must the people stand bv and see their wishes, desires and rights prejudiced ? For heaven's sake Mr. Editor, sound the note of warning ere it be too late. Shall I say more ? No prudery forbids. Yours truly •The Voice Of The People". — :o: — AD"PROTEMPORE" F. r AI.TKRIS.

the crowded thoroughfares, the

down to the lively Strains of the

picturesque sight as the men
went along, closely hemmed in
by a surging crowd, some mem
hers of which had relatives and
friends among the fighters, and
were shedding a tear, while
others were wishing the boys
the best of good luck, and cheer

I Editor of The Tribune
Sir !
It is quite time now for
ne to say something and you
too, Mr. Editor. Last night
I read in your paper a letti r
by"Interested" calling on you
to take the lead in expression
of opinion as to what ought
to happen as a result of the
recent Hospital Enquiry and
report of the Commission.
The public just now are
worked up to boiling point,
and are not prepared to take
any sedative; therefore they
demand that straight men
sures be adopted to put an
end to such irregularities as
have been practised by re
SDOnsible officials of thai In-
stitution, among whom
stands out in bold relief the
Superintendent. After pub-
lication of such a report, to
think that the Executive
Council and the Governor
could allow the management
of such an Institution to re-
main in the present hands is
simnly unthinkable. Does
the Government realize that
the publicare awaiting devel-
opments with breathless ex-
pectation ?
Must the people stand bv
and see their wishes, desires
and rights prejudiced ?
For heaven's sake Mr. Edi-
tor, sound the note of warn-
ing ere it be too late.

dery forbids.

:o:
Hudson Maxim thinks it would be
M Hudson Maxim sounded a
note of warning at the Na-
tional Democratic Club at
a lecture yesterday after-
noon when he told his au-
dience that the country was
fit to fight no nation at pres-
ent.
"It would be crazj
today," said he, "in view of
our unpreparedness to go to
war even with Mexico. Why
we cannot ever get together
a light wagon to take down
there to carry supplies.
Mr. Maxim, inventor of
high explosives, told his au-
dience that this countrv had
only 30.0 oavailable fighting
men in the regular army, and
that a strong countrv like
Germany should the war in
Europe result in her favor,
could easily land from 300,
ckk) to 400,000 men on these
shores.
Ho emphasized the need of
every man woman, and child
in the country being prepar-
ed, for he said that the aero-
plane had made all alike sub-
ject to at'ack.
"Every man woman and
child," he continued, "should
be taught to shoot. The bov
should be ready, when the
knock of the soldier conies
upon his door, to stand at the
threshold to do or die. The
girl should be within, ready
with her dagger to get back at
her assailant as best she mav.
Woman in these days is tak-
ing her part in war. She is
making munitions. When the
time comes she will he on the
line."
Mr. Maxim said that he
thoroughly believed in con-
script ion, and that he hoped
to see it adopt-] in this coun-
try.
"Our great danger here," he
continued, "is in our wealth,
we are richer and more negli-
gent than any other nation
on earth. God has put a pre
mium on fitness, and the man
will survive who is most fit.
In this countrv we haven lot
of men whom we can very
well spare, if you had travel
e1 along with the crowd on
the Oscar II you w<
lize what I mean"
Mr. Maxim said
that the munition!
