Zbe tribune Thursday, December fi, 1916 That there are important changes being made in the Cabinet is evident from recent cables. Exactly what these changes are, and why they should have been con s'dered necessary, can only be a matter of surmise in the absence of fuller particulars. It has been evident for some time that the Coalition had, to a certain extent, lost the confidence^of the.electorate. The bye-elections have alLgone against the Government, and a widespread discontent with what has been considered to be lack of firm ness in a time of international upheaval has been mani fested. These conditions are to our mind a hopeful sign, for they show that the Old Country is awake and means to stand no vacillation in dealing with the tremendous issues that the war has oc casioned. The National cri ses of'times past have gener ally been marked by rapid political transformations.and in the end the results have been satisfactory. At the pre sent time there are several good men who think that the old party system of govern ment has been anything but a success, and, on the whole, we are inclined to agree with them. While we do not alto gether relish the idea of a "business Government" pure and simple, we think that some system might be evolved which would leave our legislators greater scope for independent action. This is impossible under the Par ty system, as the "Party Hack" has to vote as his leaders direct. We await with a great deal of curiosity the details of this latest Cabinet shuffle.

Drinking in the English Armies
LON DON.(Correspodence

There isn't anything like as
much drunkeness in the British
army as there used to be. Lord
French attributes much of this
improvement to the great work
done by tho Young Men's Christ
ian Association and kindred
bodies They have established
innumerable substituies for the
canteen which Thomas Atkins
his found much more attractive
and mucli less I xpensive. They
provide wholesome refreshment
and harmless recreation for him.
And religion, toif he wants it.
Often he helps himself to all
three.
It was the opening of a new
Y. M. C. A. hut by Lord French
that afforded him theopportuni
ty to tell how much the arim
had benefit'.ed by such work.
"I remembered," he Mid,
"when I first joined the aruiy

memberthe only refuge of the

It was quite a common thing

cruit and buy beer and live up

"I think it is something like

cient work and the change that
has come over the personnel of
the army during that time has
s^
been something very little short
of miraculous. Those who have
served all those years in the
army can realise it better than
anybody else.
''A few years before the
war commenced this improve
ment began to manifest itself in
a most extraordinary manner,
and especially with regard to
the diminution of crime. Drunk
enness was formerly a most pre
valent crime in the army. I re
member that we used to have

Zbe tribune
Thursday, December fi, 1916
That there are important
changes being made in the
Cabinet is evident from re-
cent cables. Exactly what
these changes are, and why
they should have been con
s'dered necessary, can only
be a matter of surmise in the
absence of fuller particulars.
It has been evident for
some time that the Coalition
had, to a certain extent, lost
the confidence^of the.electo-
rate. The bye-elections have
alLgone against the Govern-
ment, and a widespread dis-
content with what has been
considered to be lack of firm
ness in a time of internation-
al upheaval has been mani
fested. These conditions are
to our mind a hopeful sign,
for they show that the Old
Country is awake and means
to stand no vacillation in
dealing with the tremendous
issues that the war has oc
casioned. The National cri
ses of'times past have gener
ally been marked by rapid
political transformations.and
in the end the results have
been satisfactory. At the pre
sent time there are several
good men who think that the
old party system of govern
ment has been anything but
a success, and, on the whole,
we are inclined to agree with
them. While we do not alto
gether relish the idea of a
"business Government" pure
and simple, we think that
some system might be
evolved which would leave
our legislators greater scope
for independent action. This
is impossible under the Par
ty system, as the "Party
Hack" has to vote as his
leaders direct.
We await with a great
deal of curiosity the details
of this latest Cabinet shuffle.

Sir Hector Macdonald.One
of the most fantastic stories
which hasjappeared is that the
name Brusiloff is only a nom de
plume used by the great Russian
general, and that the real per
sonality is no other than the
Scottish hero, Sir Hector Mac-
donald. It will be remembered

people throughout the world
have never credited the story.

from time to time to have been
in China, where he was reorgan
izing the Chinese army, In Rus

won him recognition, and he
was offered his choice of acorn
mission or the Victoria Cross.

"Will The Right Honourable
Gentleman give the House as
surance that the matter what
occurs the Dynasty will be pre
