1,, inmst. It is not so easy to dellne ' the causes of it. Some causes are :egltimate, some are not. 1 1 "Let us consider those which are legitimate. In some respects the ecotiomic conditions of the country during the war have been better than any ' during our lifetime. There has been no unemployment during the war. I there are special war conditions vhich have condueed to unrest. - ' Men have been working four and L.: a half years amid the tensest excite- t ment, with all kinds of anxieties, working time and overtime, and four and: I half years of that is sufficient to pro-1 duee a condition of things where men are not in their ordinary frame of : mind. Let us begin by remembering that and making allowances for it. lo ; . , 4- . .. 1 41 A , s 4 ir0 f Fear of Unemployment, " There is genuine fear of unemPloyment. Men have got that fear now. The better educated working lasses become deeper and stronger in their resentment against Social conditions, many of them involving human degradation. They protest against them. Then there is bad housing and everrrowding in many districts that has been aggravated during the war. "Thet0 there is no doubt at all that even restrictions on the people's luxui les and arnusements has had its effect. All these are causes which have contributed to unrest. In so far as there are legitimate causes of unrest, It is the business of the government to do its best to relieve them, so as to give no Justification. so as not to give material for those who are exploiting unrest. Ili flour for 3,000,000. "In trades affecting three millions of .workers, agreements have already boen arrived at with regard to hours of labor, and in trades affecting two millions negotiations are in progress. L'ut there is a good deal to be said for a more general Investigation into the whole course of industrial unrest. The government would be glad to agree upon any method of investigation which would be satisfactory to employ6 and employer and to the community at large. "My right honorable friend, the member for Derby (3. S. Thomas) made a very broad speech on Sunday. He said he did not altogether trust parliament to carry out its pledges of social reform. I cannot Imagine a graver Indictment against any government in any parliament if that were true. Still the government meant to do their best and I am confident that parliament will support them. Bills will be introduced and Introduced soon, and we propose t submit to the house certain regulations for the improvement of the procedure. 1 Ileace Al'ork Satisfactory. I am glad you have not put any ttetalled questions to me about the I ,,,?ace conference. I think the honor- I rl)le gentlemen exercised wise discreIon in that respect. It would be a misfortune if the discussions. before t hey were concluded, were referred to the parliaments of the various countries which are represented at the confcrence. " So far we (the peace conference) have made progress which is equal to And even beyond the most sanguine cpectatIons in approaching agreement upon most of these questions. " I should deprecate very strongly anything in. the nature of separate debates In the parliaments of the various- countries upon questions which .an be best discussed by representatives of thqse countries together. Many l'roblems to Solve. "There is this difference between this conference and all other confer. aces the world has ever seenthe conrence of Frankfort in 1871, the Ber:in conference in 1878, and the Ports?nouth conference. The previous ones practically all dealt with differences of 4ipinion between two countries. Here. this conference, we are settling -1,-Iestions which involve every continent in the world. It Is therefore a klifficult task to adjust all the various 1 Calms which are put forward and hich will have to be most carefully considered. "The whole energy of the delegates of the great powers has been devoted to trying not merely to effect a durable settlement but to effect it at the earliest possible moment, because we all realize that not only is peace important. but a speedy peace. and until we stablhdi peace among the nations there will always be a feeling of unr tit throughout the world. and Industry will not settle down to its normal task. Work to nit War Blame. "Only two questions have been asked about the peAlitl conference. One s as about the punishment of those responsible for the war and the other about milking Germany pay. As to toe first. an able commission has been appointed representing all the great Towers to consider the responsibility hot only of an individual. but of a reat many individuals, and not merely responsibility for the war, but rei,ponsibility for violation of the laws of war. " We hope to get their report upon the whole question with regard to the lademnity which is to be exacted from tee enemy countries. which also has 11 SPECIAL 1 SALE I 1 1 SPECIAL SALE LAST FOUR DAYS All $40 to $65 Suits and Coats Tailored to Your Measure $30 to $ 5 Your choice of Tricotines, Gabardines, Serges, Broadcloths, Silver-tones and many other novelties. Perfect Fit Satisfaction Assured 0 The full scope of. Japan's imperialistic ambitions is being brought to light in Paris as a result of requests made by China's representatives at the peace congress or protection against the pressure from Tokio for the granting of new concessions. Safe from the intrigue of Peking, where the Japanese influence extends into every department of the government, the Chinese peace envoys have taken a determined stand for their country's independence. They - have asked the pëace congress to revoke the twenty-onedemands made by Japan upon China in 1915 and that the republic be removed definitely front Japan's influence. This complete independence is asked under the protection of the league of nations. been referred to a singularly able commoission. " Upon the commission the 13ritish empire is represented by the prime minister of Australia, by Lord Cunliffe, and Lord Sumtner; They have been sitting every day. I saw Mr. Hughes (the prime minister of Australia) just before I left. He told me they had appointed three subcommittees to investigate different branches of the question. Commons All-Powerful. "A third qtestion was asked, whether the treaty of peace will be placed on the table of the house before ratification. I believe that is the ordinary course, of course, subject to the ratification of the treaty. Representatives of this country will follow the same course as representatives of every other country, and sign the treaty at the peace conference. The treaty will undoubtedly be laid upon the table of the house for ratification. If the house of commons chooses to repudiate the treaty. the house of commons is all-powerful. "With regard to reform of the present procedure of the house I am certain that our present method of having 600 men scrutinizing every line end every word. of a measure for weeks in the presence of the press is a fatal method of transacting business. I am perfectly certain that Magna Charta would never have been carried if all the barons had adopted the procedure of the house of commons. Deals with Unemployment. "Now I come to the question of unemployment. I do not believe there is any fear of unemployment if we had rationing, but if there is any attempt to reproduce the conditions which we have witnessed in Russia where there Is a deficiency of profitable employment and of food, that would indeed be fatal to employment in this country. " The burden of war bears heavily upon all classes and upon all industries and that has got to be borne in mind when you are trying to start the wheels of industry again in this country. " I wish it were borne in mind when demands are put forward by certain sections of the community that there IS plenty of material for employment if all classes act with restraint and wisely. There is no danger of unemployment if certain essential condiItions are adhered to. First of all is that confidence must be given to those who are responsible for starting the wheels of industry. " It is with difficulty that we can get a moveint. There is a great hang LIthill1111111111111111111111;511111111111111111111131141:111111111111111111111111111111111111111 :71-1 - , - - Ob Maurice JAPAil'S ELIPERIALISTIC 111131TIONS According to reports front , Paris, Japan has a well defined program of expansion- that will- make it predominant in the Pacific. In addition to insisting that Japan be made the residuary legatee of Germany in China and Oceania, Tokio is said to have brought the heaviest pressure possible on Peking that "'China's delegates" to the peace congress be muzzled and kept from disclosing the extent of Japan's ambitions in China. According to reports from Paris, Japan is trying to force from China even more drastic concessions than were embraced in the famous twenty-one demands. Although making a show of returning the German concession of Kiao-Chau to China, Tokio, it noW develops, scants China to grant ing back, because the men do not know what is going to happen if an enterprise which they start is going to be interrupted by some social upheaval. They would rather not start it. They know perfectly well that if they begin and something happens, to be caught half way would be ruin. " Confidence is, therefore, essential for the setting of the wheels of industry and commerce going. Disturbances, create unemployment, aggravate unemployment, perpetuate unemployment. "11.-pat is the second possible cause of unemployment if the cost of production in this country becomes so high that it either reduces the purchasing capacity of the community at home or puts us out of the markets of the world? Both would happen if the cost of production was as high. That means disastrous unemployment. This is why one individual trade cannot be considered without reference to the rest. One Might Wreck AIL " At the present moment the great increase in the cost of some essential ingredient like coal or transportation might easily destroy our chance of restoring our exports. I believe we exported before the war something like $5.000,000,000 of goods of all sorts, which was gigantic trade. It used to be put that half of that was wages. " Most of that business was conducted on a narrow margin. It was not a big margain. A little change this way or that would give the trade to some one else. Four shillings alone on coal, a shilling added for some other, ingredient, whether it is shipping, transport, or in some other way, may deprive us of hundreds, of millions of trade in all parts of the world. "What does that mean? It means throwing hundreds of thousands of men out of work. I will not say it might not run to 'millions. Would the miners gain by that in the end? There is no better illustration than the railways. At the beginning of the war the railways of this country were making a profit of millions that produced under 4 per cent. Losses of the Railways.

I ; - t I Shantung peninsula to Japan and recognize Japan as successor to Germany's rights, concessions, and properties in the Shantung district. This grant would give Japan complete control of China's iron ore deposits, of which she already holds two-fifths. Now that Tokio's program, has been brought into the limelight at Paris, the Japanese envoys hove come out into the open by reiterating the intention of Tokio to hold the Marshall and Caroline islands and to protect her interests on the mainland of China.- Viscount Chinda, Japanese ambassador to Great Britain, later denied that his country had any secret treaties with China or was attempting to coerce Peking to grant further concessions. another, wages. curtailment of hours of labor, increased cost of material, these have added 90,000,000 pounds to the cost of running the railways.

You have to get it from the consumer in some way or otheryour .passenger. , your goods, your foods; that is only way to dolt. " I walt every section of the community when it puts forward demands to bear these essential facts in mind: That all these demands are passed on to some one else and that there is a stage where if you could pass them on they will crowd on top of some poor industry that can hardly march now. That means unemployment for some one. Short Hours vs. Employment. " There is a feeling that one way of providing employment is by reducing the hours of labor so that there be enough work to go round at the same wages. Reduce the hours of labor to what is fair, profitable, and possible, but to reduce the hours of labor merely in order to create employment, paying exactly the same wage, Is one way to make unemployment in the whole country. Cheers and cries.' of " Boo " from Labor benches. "I should have tought that this stood to reason. It is so elementary.. It increases the cost of a particular commodity and that commodity is an Ingredient in something else. If you put up the price you diminish the purchasing capacity, And if you diminish the purchasing capacity you diminish employment, and not only that, you destroy the overseas trade upon which this' country depends more than any other country in the world. Cites Russian Example. "I despair. if the working classes of the country do not recognize that elementary and fundamental principle, but I am sure they do.

Among the measures, he said, were better housing. the formation of a department of health, the fulfillment of pledges to labor that unfair competition would be prevented, and the betterment of the agricultural situation through improved transportation. The king also urged constitutional reform for India; " durable settlement" of the Irish question, and continuation of the present amicable illations between Great Britain and the United States.

PARIS, Feb.'. 11.--" We - WOUld like some part in the peace conference," is i the general' tenor of the conference beginning on allied women at the Lyceum club, 8 Rue PenthieVe. Ways and means were discussed until a set of resolutions was adopted which was p6resented to President 6 Wilson S: Monday evening, when he received the -women by appointment at his resi- , , dence. The women representing AmeFica Inlued Mrs. J. Borden Harriman, Mrs.. Juliette Barrett Rublee, and Dr.; -,Katherine Bement Davis. Read by British Leader: The resolutions were read to the president by Mrs. Henry Fawcett, the British suffragist and president of the United -Societies of Woman Suffrage of Great Britain. Other British delegates include Mrs. Oliver Strachey:- Miss Rosiamond Smith, Miss Nina: Boyle of South Africa, and Miss Atkinson of New Zealand. The French delegation included the president and officers of the Union ! Française pour le Suffrage des Femmes. The Belgian women included Mme. Brigode, president of the Bel-; gian Federation for Suffrage, and I Marie Parent, president of the Belgian National Council of Women and League for Rights of Women. Advised to Change Plan. President Wilson listened attentively to Mrs. Fawcett's reading and then. asked the women to sit :down and talk.' things over. which they did. the audi- 1 ence lasting more than a half -hour. The president made no set reply, but ! suggested that instead of following the ! procedure of the resolution.. which was: to have the women appointed by the- federated societies of the various countries, time be saved. He suggested that the conference of women meeting in t Paris name a small committee of representative women to act with the peace ctE4egates. r Semi,Animal Furniture Sale Delicious food. prepared by Morrison Hotel chefs. served at tables.
