Tuesday, Oct. 31st, i When we think ol the pres-
ent world's struggle, our
minds go back naturally to
the fight agaii*st Napoleon.
There are many considera-
tions which make us feel how
much belter situated the En-
tente Allies are than the Co-
alition was nearly acentuary
t, ago. Two-of these considera-
tions occur to us now : To
begin with; England is far
more liberal in helping her
friends financially and does
so in a more business like
way. When Alexander made
peace with Napoleon at Til-
sit, one thing that had made
him ready to treat with Bri-
tain's arch-enemy was Eng-
land's refusal to lend him six
million pounds on the plea
that afterwards Alexander of
Russia might make war on
England and repudiate the
debt. Nowadays, we would
be willing to sacrifice a good
many millions in that wa\ in
oider to hold to Our sid< 'a
valuable ally. But while
Alexander made up to Napo-
leon, he found after a while
that there could be no stable
alliance between them. Na-
poleon would not give him
leave to have Constantinople
and would iusisl maintain-
ing his strangie-hold on
Prussia. So it was not long
before the two Emperors
split again. Now we seethe
Kntente powers as fi-m as
ever in their determination
to crush the common foe. In-
stead of seeing sudden rup-
ture? of alliances we sfee Bri-
tain and her friends holding
tighter to each other titan
ever.' When we consider these
things', we take courage. In
these days, able men in all
countries know better how to
work together, and each na-
tion evidently know what
she,is likely to get if we win.
