Economy Versus Humanity
DISMISSING tlic question of
deportation ol Belgians by
the Germans with the assertion
that "the whole question is pure-
ly economic, and Germany is
justified in her course," a coi
respondent in yesterday morn-
ing's Herald reveals what is be
lieved in this country to be the
characteristic German attitude
toward the moral questions in
volved in this war.
It might be said further that
the whole communication pub
lislied yesterday morning, deals
with the questions in which the
lives and happiness of thousands
of helpless men and women and
children are involved as if they
were all merely economic pro-
blems, as one would decide
whether it were fetter to dispose
of this, or that field, to plant
this or another crop, leaving
out entirely the human rights
involved.
The Herald, in common with
other American papers is criti-
cised for unfairness and injustice
to Germany because the publi-
cation of articles and comments
on which come from sources,
said 'o be prejudiced, the cor*
rectness of which the correspon
dent impugns, overlooking the
fact that his own authority is
quoted from exactly the same
source from which American
papers get their information.
In common with his fellow
countrymen, he can see no
wrong in the wholes.de deporta
tion from their homes and the
homes of their ancestoisof prac
tically a whole people. He and
they can overlook the pain, the
sorrow and the suffering caused
by the separation 0 f families,
the tearing away of the father
from his children, the husband
from his wife, and call it an
economic question, simply.
He asserts and German auth
orities assert, that the Belgians
refuse to work in Belgium and
that, therefore, for economic
reasons, they must he sent to
points where thc> can be com-
pelled to labor. But why should
the Belgian remaining on his
own soil be compelled to work,
except it is to the advantage of
his ruthless conquerors? What
assurances has he that if he does
work, if he supports himself and
his family a;.d accumulates a
few savings, what assurance lias
he that German official will not
take away fiom him all that he
lias ? It has been done before to
the nation, the people at large
and to individuals.
Belgium, invaded by an over
powering force, made a gallant
attempt to repel from her bor
dersa relentless And {replaceable
foe. for that defence, right and
rightous from every point of
view, she has been overrun, she
has been charged with a large
part of the expense incurred l>\
her conquerors, her cities and
towns and people have been
robbed and brought to poverty,
they have been outraged in
every conceivable form, and to
all this is added this last crime
that almost a whole people
must be sent into the conqueror's
country there to work exactly
as slaves are worked, their lives
forfeit if they do not contribute
to the resources of the govern
ment that is lighting and kill
ing their fellow countrymen,
and this is all passed over and
dismissed as merely a question
of economy.
The civilized world is today
1 protesting against this crowning
humanity, and all history will
hold Germany responsible for
the woe and misery this latest
tyrannical order imposes on a
conquered and helpless people.
It is utterlj beside Hie question
thai England and Holland have
found difficulty in Retting the Be!*
pians to help themselves, although
the statements rcferriig thereto
may well be doubted. Neithei Eng-
land nor Holland has overrun Be!,
guiin and they are not proposing

work,'' to send idem into virtual
slavery, separating families, depriv-
ing women and children and the
aged of support, bringing starva-
tion to thousands and spreading
miser) and woe broadcast over a
whole country.
It may beecooomyfoi Germany,
and we may well believe thai she
will profit by the forced labor of
her captives, who will take the
place of men who can be sent to
the front, but the world is not con-
sidering Germany's economic pro.
blems, it is considering the fate of
men and women, ground under the

'I lie scries of articles in the
"Times" by Mr. Curtin are
the most illuminating we
have seen as to the internal
situation in Germany. Mr.
Curtin's statements have all
the more weight because of
his evident desire to be accu-
rate. One thing that emerges
clearly from what Mi. Curtin
says is that among the woi k
ing classes there is an intense
u n r es t. The Government j
characteristically deals with
this by mians of wholesale
repression and terrorism. So
fa 1 the upper and middle
classes are docile, but it ap-
pears that the middle class is
gradually being leavened
with a dissatisfaction which
will become an increasing
danger as the months pass.
The enormous number of ai-
nsts and imprisonments on
suspicion and without trial
will in the end raise a vol-
ume of revolutionary feeling
which it will become harder
and harder to hold down.
The military authorities
will so far crush liberty as to
make men desperate. They
are sowing the wind and are
likely to reap the whirlwind.
Our impression grows that
the state of things in the
German empire will be the
main Influence to forcing the
I itons to their knees. It is
not wise to sit on the safety
value.
We understand that the
Government has decided in
the existing exci ptional cir
cuinstances,not to allow the
customary suspension of the
Regulations under the Street
Noise, Prohibition Act 1899
at the Forthcoming Christmas
and New Year.
There will be no Police
Band Concert tonight, but
on SUNDAY night Christ-
inas eve after the evening ser
vices, (between 8 and 9 p.m.)

Letters From The
Front-
an officer's joy in his
MEN.
The Human Harp Strkigs.
:o:
An officer seiving in
France writes:After a nice
little rest we aie going Up
again. So here's to mir lolly
good luck. Don't woi iv a bout
me going up the line again,
as I am looking forward to
it, and have a splendid sec
lion. You can have no idea
how 1 love my men. My whole
life at pi> sent is in two little
wood huts. Two splendid ser
geantS who can stand under
shell fire just like waiting in
a queueSi\ the pit, early doors.
They're for the most part
miners from "T'North" as
they say, but all just like ba
bies -you almost have to
dress them and feed them,
and that's where the fun
comes in and that's where
the friendship springs up.
The whole tiling is discip-
line, the real true stuff.
Not bully stuff. When I say
" 'Shun!''' I mean "Slum" and
byll -if a man tall s or moves
a hair, he gejs it hot too.
Yet I wouldn't let that man
go about with a pair of worn
boots for all I he world and
they know it ai.d appreciate
it. Feed, clothe, and look af
ter a man, find him a place
to rest his head, look after his
ailments, find out his pecu-
liarities, his weaknesses, his
strong points, praise him
when he tries, show him vou
know your job, trust him,
treat him like a man, and
behave like a gentleman your
self, and any man will follow
you to Hell. I've been twii e
there and seen it. Somehow
or other I don't think any one
of No.section would leave
theii officer, their vi ry own
officer, in a fix.
Now from this pei hap
will be able to see the 1e.1l joy
there is in the life out lure
real, true, joy. It fasinales' me
to play on the strings of t!
fellows' hearts, just as a mu-
sii ian plays on a harp. It
won't stand rough handling
neither will they. If not
kept up to the mark it gits
out of tune -so do they. If
frequently played on it an-
swers to the will of tlu play-
1 1. and new and bettei m tes
are si ruck the same ap| III -
here. I'll always write and
tell you about my section^as
long as I can keep it.Through
this you'll see how I am. \
happy section means l'mO K.
and living and enjoying life
Perfectly content.
Good night to both ol
May God bring us all tl
safely togethei again not
too soon; the idea of passing
No.-------to another officer
would be far too haul, and
yel I would love to be back
again in dear old----------.
While there's a warontheres
one place for me. You know
where that place is. It's
among men, nun who are
making history as history
was never made befon
Before I was under fire 1
was afraid, terribly afraid. I
thought I should run, but
now all that fear is gone, and
in its place has sprung an
easy self-confident e based
absolutely on a Higher help,
u hich help I have prayi d for
as I ne\er prayed in my bh;
so when at church pray for
my men, their trust in me,
my OW n power over them,
rather than for my own per-
sonal safety.
A Prisoner in Turkey

THE TIGER
is one of the most destructive of animals, and is
a source of much danger to life.
SUNLIGHT SOAP
preserves and lengthens the life of your clothes, but
it is a source of destruction to all dirt and unclean-
liness. The amount of destruction wrought by a tiger
in a single night, cannot
rs
&
be compared to the amount
of destruction wrought by
inferior soap in a single
wash-day. Sunlight Soap
is an absolutely pure Soap,
that saves your clothes,
time, money, and labour.
