The Mrat British loan, to Italy was in 1815. two year before the United - States entered the war, : and . ever . since then Oreat Britain - has been " truivlnjr R ner !nr unon tftlTA Amount ahe raised for her any, ..-. Ira the second place, the United States was able to borrow at 4 '4 per cent., against the British rate of 8 per cent, " - Consequently, if -Britain were to , arrant the same extraordinarily gen- . erous terms ae the United States, ; she wouM -have to continue to find 1 ' 94 Per cent., interest while the ,' American taxpayer has to make up a deficiency of nay 3 per cent. Roughly speaking, the British tax- - gpayers contribute annually 28,000, , 090 to pay the Interest on the money borrowed for" Italy, or about six Pence In each pound of income tax. - and they certainly expect the Italian Treasury to pay toward that more than J,500,O00, which is about what It pay the United States under the Washington' agreement. CITES TERMS TO FRANCE. France has "foeen asked to pay 2'A per cent. Interest and Rumania 2 1-6 per cent, and no reasonable deduc tion! on account - of Italy a poverty -can reduce the rate to be asked of , J3r to per cent, v ' Moreover, in accordance with, th Balfour principle, which requires that Great Britain be compensated for the amount she pays the United States on 4ier own debt by receiote from her alMes, plus her share of the Oermaiy reparations, the British ex pectatlons from ItaJy come to a larg . er figure than such an interest would produce. Take the British payments to the ; United States at 35,500,000, against . mem enouia De offset the 12,500,-. 000, which Churchill 'asked from France last epring, the 10,000,000 , received from Germany by Britain under the Dawes ,plan, and the 2,-009,000 said .her by smaller Tioiijan , debtors; that fleaves 11,000,000 to . oe corieeteii py Br i n from Ttalv ; and any other unimportant debtors yet to be roped in. Complications In the negotiations may arise through the um of 22 -200,000 deposited in sterling by Itaily wn cne can or .England. The present Indebtedness of Italy is now reckoned at 560,000,000, of which 160,000.000 represents ancrnert in. terest. The actual loan was incurred an' several inistalments. . - The first 182.000.000- wa W. ; rowed in 1916, and against it this 22,200,000 in sold was handed to ; too -same or England as ernrMv . with a written stipulation that it be , sum rwpara untit xtaly refunded to Britain avU advances, This gold, In the courtta of the war, found its way to the United , States to fceip finance the allied t cause.

Mr. Greenway, Who i of Toronto. , will presjde over the annual convention of eastern sales representatives of the tirrru which is belng held for the first three- davs jof this week in Montreal. . Nearly 30 merrtbers of the stafif, from numerous cities, will be .present and will stay nt tne uueens Hotel. Headquarters -at the convention will be at the Clubi! .Citnadien. Objections to the n ' high duly ,, imposed on the cocoa ben by the Mtrltlsh West Indies treaty are-very .atrongly felt 'by the coooa manufacturers and chocolate confectioners of the Dominion, said Mr. Greenway, higher rate of 1 cents a pound .v il! alone cost the firm of ,T. g.

It wtis stated that tie firm imports S,iM'0 tons of cocoa beans, of which B.uoO tons come from Africa. It was ini'posslble to grow the product, which Is the 'basis of the Indutry, In Can-ad:i. ' Trinidad, in the British .Wret Indies, produced a certain amount of coi'ou beans, of high qunjltty, but toe expensive to 'be used extensively by the firm. ' Jamaica has only a limited number of cocoa plantations, and the bt-ans are not suitable for the firm's consumption. "It is necessary for this firm, therefore." proceeded MY. Oreenwsy, 'to . Import 80 per cent of the consumption of cocoa 'beans from Africa, ami this firm must pay $50,000 duty on a prouet hat cannot be produced in this country. ' The cocoa bean is the basis of the industry, and the new duty is a direct tax on the food of the people." Waldemar Muller, vice-president of Daarnhouwer & Co.,'Inc, large cocoa bean importers of New York, who is attending the convention, cited Holland as an example. He said that HoIIsind could Import cocoa - beans from Africa free of duty, could manufacture them Into chocolate nd compete with Canadian chocolate houses successfully. Canadian chocolate firms had to pay 1 H cents on cocoa beans from Africa and were not able to produce their g.oodo as cheaply as the Dutch manufacturer could place his product on the Canadian market.

This week there will be a special effort to reach the allocation and. with th v. encouraging beginning, the committee and other leading members of the congregation expressed yesterday every confidence that gt. Andrew's share would be obtained In the near future and mw n,ih.M by next Sunday. No everv memhr canvass is being attempted, as in moat other United church r th. city. The chairman of the commit- ire is w. h. Sutherland, and the treasurer p. M. Hope. g Melville United, where the canvass had to be delayed, are now in a position to announce, not on.!v i:h completion of the canvass, hut &lo the fact that they have subscribed the full amount required of them. There still remain about twenty per cent, of the congregations of the presbytery to report completed fcan-vasses.

The speaker decried, as an opium dream, the belief In certain European countries that their mission is to bring culture to the barbarians, and in this connection he presented a startling picture o alleged national ambitions in Spain, France and Italy.. The lecture was attended by a gathering which flfled the Church of the Messiah t6 capacity, and the re markable 'fluency of the epeaker and the fervor with which he spoke created a deep impresslen. His descrip tion of present-day Italy, alive with dreams of national aggrandizement, drew smiles of amusement, especially when he told of certain Faschvtl who even hoped to conquer Great Britain with the exception of- Scot-lend. ' -r Taking as his -tevl "Western Chaos and Eastern Mysticiem," ihJ speaker drew a vivid picture of continental Europe today, as he visualized it after a recent tour through Spain, Inly, France and other oour.-tries. Mr. Mukerji ftret told of the syndi calists in Spain, Including the "crl-.i- inal syndicalists" who are usuaily given ehoit shrift when they fall Into the hand of the authorities. Thia class, forming a very smill minority, believe, s-agd the spcalitr. that the proletariat has only to do away, with capitalHm . and paradloe will Ke at hand.

Trdceedcd Mr. Muke.'ji, he had been told that there would be no peace until France look .-.orin Africa. Frenchmen pointed 'out that years ago ' Franc had conquerad Algeria and Morocco, and bad brought civilization to the peoples of these countries., - There was a treat deal of chaotic thlnklnramons the ruling classes of these European countries, affirmed the speaker. They were bent 'on bringing civilization and culture to peoples who do not want it. The Riff, the Damaecan, the Chinaman, the Hindu, are not willing to be ihue civilised, and those who believe the contrary are living in a paradise which does not exist. , The reaction against this kind of clvillzatlbn in Asia had come to stay, said Mr. Mukerji. While a few' monarchies atltl existed In the East, renuhllcan institutions were uiising. and this republicanism Was a cry for equality. "With a mentality .use that, how can you impose your superiority?" asked, the lecturer, i Such solutions of world problems, through conquest- and eu bj-ugation, were merely mechanical. They could not succeed because they had not behind them the .moral quality which cculd alone bring about the brotherhood of man. The body could not be disarmed unless the soul was disarmed. ' Mr. Mukerji then described many phases of eastern mysticism, the movement lead by Gandhi Sn India, and winning of equality , by the Pariahs under his splri'tuaj guidance. Th spiritual element in the solution of world problems, nvust precede the purely mechanical. Culture was not to be achieved through, the conquest and mutilation of pemplea. "Real culture is of the eoul; when you develop the spiritual life, you will not need to conquer u; we will come end in all humility ask for it," said the lecturer In conciliation.

'ROMOLA' EFFECTIVE IN FILM VERSION Gives Good Opportunities to Dorothy and Lillian Gish at Capitol MINOR INTRIGUES OUT Adapters Have Eliminated Some Characters and Enhanced Importance . of Others " Those who visit the Capitol Theatre this week 'to see "Romola," will wit ness an effective production. The film version of George Eliot's novel pre. aents a finer picture of Italy's charm to the spectator that the author did to the reader; for the scenes are laid In Florence and the photography ie a masterly effort.' They cannot fall to be delighted with one of Dorothy Glsh's best performances, in the role of Tessa, and wHh the consistent por trayal of the title role by her sister. Lillian. The Mory. as Mary "Anne Evans wrote It In the '60's, Is whar the taste of today would call a "wordy" novel, with its action" sub ordinated to an acute and interesting demonstration of the havoc wroug-ht by wakness of character. The adapters have taken what is in this case the excusaUe . liDerty ot eliminating minor jmriguss and characters and Injecting interest by rals-iiit others to greater Importance than George Eliot gave them. Their deviations from the written novei have rteulted In a iilm that is better, as a film, than a faithful reproduc tion of her work would have been Unavoidably, the picture does not present a story whose "central stock is the broken reed ot one weak char acter," as Chesterton descrli.es the novel. Interest is shifted away from Tito Melema. the neak-willed philan derer and cheat. to fasten on the ctvaracters of the maid Romola. 'Mt-arned of books, but of the world untaught." and of the girl Tessa, "the rough handed car.tadlna." raised more by the rod, the toot and the cure than the gentle reprimanu, both of whom are Tito the (ireek's vic-tlnis of love, ind both of whom are women as George Eliot wroie or them, trust. ng. devoted and innocent, though their aalke of lite are far a,part. Tito, on whom the plot, though n-ot the interest, hinges, lands in Florence unknown. He makes his vnv to high sKtiitt on the Council of ttl-ht c-jternins tody of Horence lie denlew h.s adopted father, tetrays the trrst of- his rattier-in-iaw nu mara the l of Romola and Tessa.

Mr. Allan le the first Canadian to I'e officially authorized to lecture on Christian Science, and it as the first Christian Science lecture to be broadcast rom Montreal cTnfc "put n he air" by 'Statlon Amongst other things the lecturer said: "Have you ever been afraid? Most people have. W hat have they feared ? Everything, anything, very frequently nothing. They have feared the weather in all lis moods. They have cen afraid to go out, and afraid to slay in: afraid of the dark, and rtirald of the light. They have 'feared their bodies every day in the year, and every hour of the day. They have I'eurcd things they have see:;, and things they have fiever seen, and would not recognize should they see hem.
