We have never been tempted to buy kipper, even our lightest moments. During the war. it seems, a lot of laws for "the defence of the realm" were passed in England. Among them, apparently, was one against selling Kippers aner oars Just how this aided the British armies we don't pretend to know. Anyway, the statesmen knew that, if a Britisher bought a kipper at 9.15 p.m.

the British line in France would crumble and all would be lost. So all the naoers carried headlines: "KiDDers Ban- ined After Nine" and the nation was saved. And now the more radical Britishers want law however, won't do it. And all the candidates are going abcmt tne COUntry making pro- kipper and anti-kipper speeches. Mr.

Baldwin, the premier, is anti-kipper, and Mr. Lloyd George, the wartime premier, who Is trying to come back, is pro-kipper. It's all very involved, and we wouldn't want to take sides on a snap Judgment. From this location, it looks very much as if Mr. Baldwin will come a-cropper on a kipper, and thus the heaven-born rights of Englishmen, free citizens, will be preserved.

LOVE'S LEGACY Christian Science Monitor In the Sermon on the Mount, that compendium of beautiful and immortal statements of spiritual truth which Christ Jesus jsent ringing through the ages as a guide to right living, we find this injunction: "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and perse cute you." Christ Jesus himself always expressed love. Although reviled and persecuted, he could say concerning one's enemies, "Love your enemies," Even in the midst of his experience on Calvary our great Exemplar expressed love to all. Furthermore, he gave to the world an incomparable example of forgiveness when, on the cross, he prayed for his persecutors.

"Father, forgive them nf0W n0t hf 17 'JVu method of forgiveness Is to love God and His creation man and the universe fervently, purely, and to have no consciousness of anything but love. Thought permeated with love has no room for Love's unlikeness. To one who knows only love, hate has no existence; and thereby all who come within the radius of his thought are blpssed. To forgive one's enemies in this way Interprets love, reveals the nature of divine Love. To express love, even when hate seems to he expressed, is proof positive that one loves God.

A. Sir Robert Borden, returning from a sojourn in the South, speaks enthusiastically of increasing American realization of the greatness of Canada's possibilities. The prominent Americans with whom Sir Robert came into contact were, he reports, greatly Impressed with Canadian development, pro- grew and institutions. There can be no doubt that Canada has made great progress in American estimation during" recent years, nils is conclusively shown by the ever-Increasing amounts of United States capital invested in various ways on our country. Another important fac tor has been the great growth of the tourist industry.

Each year many thousands of Americans learn, for the first time, what a wonderful land we have here and what splendid prospects it commands. All this, of course, is of great value to Canada. It brings money and it brings people and we can use both to advantage. There is another agency that should be mentioned in the same connection and that is the establishment of a Canadian ministry ln Washington a departure for which no little credit must go to Sir Robert Borden. The idea was initiated during the premiership of the former Conservative leader.

Mr. King actually nominated the first minister, but the principle was laid down by Sir Robert before the Liberals came into office. Indeed, it is this circ*mstance that renders rather absurd the occasional criticisms one hears from Conservative sources concerning the maintenance of Canadian diplomatic representation in the American capital. The Star Is convinced that the great majority of Canadians are very proud of and satisfied with the fact that we have an envoy in Washington, and it believes, also, that the last year has well demonstrated the value of such representation. Mr.

Massey was a thor oughly agreeable choice for this important post. He has given an excellent account of. himself and created a splendid impression for Canada in Washington's diplomatic circles. Border Cities Star. THE TARIFF TROUGH The rush for tariff favors continues and with the usual hypocrisy.

Thus the plate-glass manufacturers have demanded a higher tariff despite the fact that in response to their appeals President Coolidge and the Tariff Commission in January last increased the duty on small sizes from 12M cents to 16 cents, on larger from 15 to 19 cents, and on the largest from 17 'i to 22 cents. Today, three months the manufacturers are notifying Congress that their business is being "ruined by foreign competition." That sounds so interesting and tragic that It is worth while looking at the financial statement for 1928 of one of the large concerns, the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company. This poor little impoverished manufacturer notifies its stockholders that, after writing off $4,000,000 for depreciation, obsolescence, and depletion, and $1,200,000 for income tax, It had left only a beggarly eight millions surplus, equivalent to $3.90 per share of common stock, par value $25. In other words, this company was allowed to earn only 15.6 per cent by its rapacious foreign competitors. Pity this poor mendicant and do urge Congress to drop still higher duties into its hat as it stands in rags at the doors of the Capitol! Next we behold the business of making surgical instruments weeping crocodile tears over its desperate plight.

It is protected by an ad valorem duty of 45 per cent. It is demanding not only an ad valorem duty of 75 per cent, but in addition specific duties ranging from 12 cents per dozen to $7.20. On hypodermic syringes the business modestly requests a 235 per cent duty as. against the present 65 per cent. The Clay-Adams Company of New York city, Importers, in opposition, declares that these proposed enormous increases "will benefit only a very few who are now very prosperous without this Increase, to the serious disadvantage and great expense of a very large number who cannot a.f ord the burden." Among others protesting are the American Medical Association, the American College of Surgeons, the American Hospital Association, the Catholic Hospital Association, and other great organizations which are interested In keeping down the cost of Illness.

But the prosperous American manufacturers wish to take additional toll from 150,000 physicians, 50,000 dentists, hospitals, and thousands of students. Finally, we have that ardent champion of peace, Senator Borah, telling the Canadians how Impudent they are in daring to protest against our tariff and threaten reprisals. It is America first with him, and he is certain that only some people "of sentimental and Impracticable philosophy may find fault with such a policy. But it is, after all, the foundation of national life and well-being." Well, we of that despised group, beg leave to notify Senator Borah that it is a concern of the conscience, humanity, and sound business sense of the United States whether we shall ruin many industries of our brothers across the Canadian line and infuriate them to the point where they will buy from merchants in our country Just, as little as they possibly can.

(Matt. 7: 13, 14.J Blessed is the man that walketh not ln the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit In his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly ere not so: but are like the chaff which the wind drtveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the Judgment, nor sinners ln the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish. (Ps.

Lord Ood of hosts, who Is a st rong Lord like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee? Blessed Is the people that know the Joyful cound: they shall walk.

ln which a correspondent takes Issue with a letter of mine of the 10th, In the fame paper, on the "I'm Alone" outrage, is entirely beside the three points stressed by me, namely, the extraordinary courage of the captain and his men, the cowardly and inhuman attack by the two gunboats and the fact that Captain Randall has renounced rum-running and again become the useful citizen he had always been In the past. (Let him who has never trans gressed the law cast the first stone.) In my letter I did not discuss the business the captain was at that moment engaged in except to condemn it in the strongest possible terms, but his calling at that particular time was no excuse for an attack, the Inhumanity of which is probably without a parallel even In war time. The testimony of Captain Randall and all of his men that after their schooner was literally shot to pieces and went down, they were allowed to remain In that rough sea till they themselves were on the verge of going down for the last time, and one actually did drown. Is beyond the comprehension of any ordinary human being. The smashing by gunfire of all their lifeboats and the diabolical effort made to explode their gasoline tank with its-added' horror was nothing short of a deliberate attempt at wholesale murder, and should arouse the indignation of everyone regardless of race or creed.

That the captain was well within his rights in refusing to surrender on the high seas is attested to by such high authority as a distinguished rear-admiral of the United States navy, who says that his country has "not a leg to stand on" In this case. I have heard this outrage condemned more by Americans than Canadians. Canada has turned the other cheek so often that I am not surprised that the people of other countries think they can with impunity shoot holes in our flag and holes In our citizens. I am asked time and again by my American friends, "What is the matter with you Canadians?" I say again that the thought of this frail wooden schooner forging ahead ln that rough sea, sinking lower and lower In the sea till she finally went down with her bullet-pierced flag flying at her masthead should cause the hat of every red-blooded man to come off to the captain and crew of the "I'm Alee regardless of the nature of the cargo she carried in her hold FRANK J.

Assuredly that section of expatriated Italians who elected to become British citizens will agree that their initial cordial welcome has been amply substantiated and en-, dorsed by the ensuing advantages which they ln common wtttt all others enjoy, while beneath the standard of the British Empire and the fiag of the Dominion of Canada.

The success of the Journal is a demonstration of the appeal which such an outlook holds It I. Wa i eloquent tribute to the capacity of the man himself.

The well-earned prestige The Citizen's neighbor enjoys is very largely attributable to the personality of Mr. Ross, a personality, as is so well pointed out in the advertisem*nt referred to, which is the very warp and woof of the newspaper he has made so peculiarly his own. OVERCOMING HANDICAP People vary in Intelligence as greatly as they in weight, stature or complexion, This may be due to heredity, faulty environ- ment, or what not, but it is a condition that must be taken into consideration by educators. School curricula devised for the average child usually makes demands beyond the capacity of those having what is termed the lower grades of intelligence. Under the educational system of the past these were the dunces; they were eventually allowed to go torth into the community untrained and in every way unequipped to meet the trials and temptations of life, Naturally their ranks contributed overwhelmingly to the populations of our public institutions Jails, poorhousej, hospitals, houses of refuge.

It Is one of the triumphs of mental hygiene that these people are now being dealt with In an intelligent manner. Few people are born into the world without a capacity for some sort of iseful endeavor, If only proper steps be taken at the right time to determine the nature and extent of this talent or facility. In most progressive communities there are now 'special classes in the schools where such children are thus specially Instructed along the lines of their greater Interests and abilities. Instead of trying to pound academic teaching into heads unsui.ed to it, the prac- i iu.c in lurst lis. is io instruct me pupils in various forms of manual work Some two hundred such classes are now established ln various schools throughout Canada.

This instruction should be continued, after the lower schools are passed, in vocational high schools; so that at the 8ge of sixteen or seventeen the pupil will have acquired a trade by which he or she may be able to maintain himself or herself in society, with, ln some instances, perhaps, a minimum of supervision. The Junior Vocational School, for boys, and ihe Edith L. Groves School, for girls, under the Toronto Board of Education, are the only vocational schools for retarded adolesrrnts yet established in Canada. In some respects, it Is said, they are ahead also of anything in the United States. The manner in which these two schools are making useful citizens out of children generally considered handicapped, many of whom have previously appeared in the Juvenile court, is a striking example of what can be done when intelligence and sympathy are applied to a human problem.

There is a third factor which encourages hope. It is that this year sees the pressure of public and official opinion greater than ever. Resolutions have poured In on the conference, and petitions have been submitted by the score. Opinion for peace crystallises. The sentiment for disarmament has been tremendously stimulated.

Two chief reasons exist for this. First there is the lesson of the failure of the three-power conference in 1927. Second, there is the general adoption of the Kellogg treaty, ln addition, the small nations clamor for action, and ths great ones, stirred by the yoke of their military commitments and the cries of their taxpayers, grope towards the truth. Into this more congenial atmosphere came Mr. Gibson and delivered a speech which electrified the delegates and drew forth prake from the rast of the world.

It is un necessary to quote particular passages. Most readers have already read the cabled ac- I counts of the address. But this needs to be I noted. It was in an entirely fresh key, so far as American utterances on disarmament at Geneva go. It was a challenging call to the nations to drop red tape and subterfuge and in this vital matter get down to actualities.

If the nations are honest, Mr. Gibson said, they will find lio further Justification for a continuation of "war-taxed peace." The British response, spontaneously made by Lord Cushendun, was acceptance of the sentiments expressed by the American delegate. And so for the first time reason exists for thinking that the deadlock created in 1927 between Britain and the United States on questions of parity and limitations can be broken and the whole problem approached on a fresh footing. After all, the world moves forward. There are setbacks along this steep path to disarmament.

But If we look back, and so note the retrospect, we are better able to see the prospect, That prospect is not so bright as it might be. But it Is brighter now than it has been for many a day. JUSTIFIED PROTEST On whatever side of the fence they stand, those who have followed the debate ln the House on Mr. Veniot, postmaster-general, and the Simcoe postmastershlp, will be inclined to back up Mr. Bennett in his protest against an effort on the part of an Ottawa French-language newspaper to ascribe the attack on Mr.

Veniot's policies to race prejudice, arising directly out of the fact that the present postmaster-general had cawed to be Issued bilingual postage stamps. The suggestion would be too preposterous to be seriously noticed by serious people were it not for the fact that the readers of the newspaper in question will in many cases be persuaded to believe that it is founded on fact. One wonders whether the writers of such silly and mischievous stuff ever stop to consider the consequences of their writings before committing them to paper. The effect cannot be otherwise than to deepen any racial antagonism existing, and to widen the gulf of sectionalism to the closing of which such newspapers as the one Mr. Bennett protests against are ever most loud and gesticulatory ln lending lip service.

BUT NOT FOR THE GANDER Senator Capper of Kansas is one of the leading spokesmen for tariff farm relief In the United States Congress. Writing in the New York Times, he lays down what he calls "the six basic principles" of the legislative i remedies weripd to bring about farm relief. Tiie first basic principle has to do with tariff legislation. The other five pertnln to internal economy purely, and need not detain us. This Is principle number cr.e; Higher tariffs on farm products on an Import or marginal import basislive stock, dairy products, meals, corn, oil seeds and so forth.
