Referring to the recenta editorial in
the Star regarding the activities of

And for that there were a great many

ENGLISH OPINION OF
The following from the Toronto
Mail and Empire probably expresses
the British and French opinion of Mr.
Hughes as a candidate for the presi presidency:
dency: presidency: Hughes and Wilson
The attitude of ex-Chief Justice
Charles E. Hughes toward Germany
and the Entente Allies in their con controversies
troversies controversies with the United States has
been purposely obscure. In his first
broadside at 'the Wilson administra administration,
tion, administration, accepting the republican nomi nomination,
nation, nomination, he still covers over his dispo disposition.
sition. disposition. He assails President Wilson's
wordiness in dealing with Germany,
and blares forth a call for the cham championship
pionship championship of United States rights, by
whomsoever violated, but he dexter dexterously
ously dexterously keeps; away from i- the vital
ground of what he would have done
had he, in the White House, had to
deal with the concrete promlems
faced by Mr. Wilsom
Political strategy would require the
republican candidate to- veil his pre predispositions,
dispositions, predispositions, in the earlier part of the
campaign, at least, while attacking
the course of the president on all of
its many vulnerable points. In a ser
ies of difficult positions such as were
presented to Mr.? Wilson, any policy
adopted would be open to sharp crit
icisms, v It was morally impossible to
devise a course not objectionable in
some important feature. .There- was
always the risk of war, which the
president' wisely tried to shun, and
the necessity of holding, Germany in
its proper place. No doubt the presi president
dent president wasted much notepaper, and
used grave"i diplomatic language
when the fist to back it up was hang hanging
ing hanging loosely. But when Mr. Wilson
finally made up his mind to break off
diplomatic relations he made it1 up
tirinly, enough, and Germany had to
crawl on the submarine issue, in the
fice of a strongly-united .support of
ii 4 '" ir tt i t t
rne presiaenrDy ine umiea otates
people." Looking back now, at the
submarine controversy, and at i the
twin results achieved -German ( back backdown
down backdown and. the maintenance of peace
the people of the United States have
good reason to. feel satisfied with the
administration's attorneyship for
them in the crisis. No doubt Presi
dent Wilson missed a, great moral op
portunity when he failed to protest," in
the name of international good faith,
against the violation of Belgian neu
trality, but even Mr. Hughes does not
dare criticise him for that absentation.
So far as the Allies are" concerner,
Mr. Hughes, if elected, might not be
more disposed to put real difficulties
in their way than Mr. Wilson has
been, i But the Allies at least know
Mr.4 Wilson, his idas and policies, his
reasonableness and his cautious mod
eration. AH they could ask, now that
Germany has been forced to stop
wholesale and ruthless submarine
warfare, is i;hat they be left as, free
as possible to "finish their work."
They would ndt fare better at the
hands of a republican presdient in that
respect. v f

money to buy it witfi but Belleview
is rich in the expectation, so ; ; we
bought the plant. A number of so so-called
called so-called bonds, notes or certificates of
indebtedness were issued at $100 per,
and a number of people looking for

deposited good, hard money for some
of thehe bonds. They still 'have them.

thought that the marshal should con

what the mayor said about hiar being

taxes it was Often necessary to go to

the importance of being on the square,
he made it a point to visit other sec

fact that members of the council had
recently stated that they had never
seen a policeman hi their part of the
city. The marshal did not 'reply, to
the mayor's statement that there had
been no consultation between them for
months. Council thought that Mr.

back taxes and in his other duties,

PROFIT IN .GOf HOUSING

At first glance there might not seem

An empty house can be flushed from

WORTH OF SCHOOL GARDENS
Development of the Idea Proves How
Valuable Has Been the Informa Information
tion Information Spread by Them.
It was only a few years ago that the
"school garden', idea, "nature studies"
and the teaching of agriculture in the
cbmmon schools, were looked upon as
fads of the most exaggerated type.
Farming, it was maintained, could be
taught on the farm, where It would be
needed; of what possible use was it
to teach farming to a city boy or
girl? These "nature studies" wasted
the valuable time of the pupil which
should be employed in rational work;
in short, the wholes propaganda was
rank nonsense. Yet, the, entire move movement

one city school garden, there are now
a hundred, and every, spring sees
thousands of new ones, organized and

. Evergreen Trees and Hedges.
Much of the bleakness of the winter
landscape may be removed by the use
of evergreens near the house.
The home-builder may 'well consider
this point when planning the layout of
his grounds. It is comparatively easy
to secure pleasing landscape effects
during the season of green leaves and
buds and blossoms; but when deprived
of these the problem becomes more
difficult. ; s.
Evergreen hedges are possible, and
an occasional evergreen tree growing
up out of the hedge is a charming way
of breaking the sometimes monotonous
