ELMER LUCK TELLS OF GERMAN ATROCITIES (Concluded From Page 8.) only in the provision of the necessities for the soldiers but of the men themselvee if the British must gain the victory In this terrlblo vrrugsle. Mr. Luck, whose lnt3restlnr and convincing story was, tald without onj effort at spectacular efl'ect, gave a' the outset his Impression of tho German character a It had come under hi own personal observation. The women of Germany were looked upon as far below the men, whili- a rigid iron discipline prevailed which eventually became opprjssiva. Immorality was shockingly prevalent, the percentage of Illegitimacy being aliicst M per cent, whlle their religion was simply a formal maker. In the universities and collestes a man's knowledge was looked upv-i ns ar more lmourtant than .lis character, and a an example of their perfect organisation, he pointed out thut every .man. woman and ohM wan d'Vmi their utmost to farther .he'r success In the present conflict. Children every day took to school metal and wool which they had collected on the day previous, while women spent every spare mo ment in doctors' waiting rooms and the waiting rooms of the railway companies doing knitting, the materials for which had been provided by the doctor' and railway companies. Acorns were collected In the fall and ground and roasted at a substitute for coffee for the prisoners, and medically unfit men and cripples wer enlisted to take the places of men An Interesting lecture was given last night by Fire Chief Heath to about 20 of the Boy Scouts of the City regarding the prevention of fire.

The d.clai alien of war by England against Germany came as a thundetbolt to the people In Germany, the newspapers have led them to believe that England would be the ally of Germany In war against Russia.

Made in Canada. that U was decided when Louvain was takon td kill several thousand of tha Inhabitants because their soldier had been firedrupon. At first they were killed by the hundred, women anil chidren included, by a tiring Bquad. This was found to be too slow, however, and the balance of them were led out of the city and a machine gun turned upon them right and left and they were mown down by its fire. 'An Instance of the utter hatred which the Germans showed towards the British he related how an old friend, the pastor of a cnurch hud turned upon him for beln one of the urcursed Canadianj, who were wonse than tho British and often it was the case that the best educated of the University Professors were thi most bitter in' their hatred, while the newspapers, whose policy was dictated by the military authorities, circulated stories of tho terrible treatment of the Germans In England. A German nurse In his house had even been able to alienate the affection of his two children from him for a time and they treated him with contempt and thanked heaven that they were Germans. When arrested and placed in gaol he was placed among convicts and treated In the same manner with regard to food and regulations. For breakfast they had flour mixed with water, din-ner consisted of a lump of black bread and a slimy tort of stew, and for supper another lump of black bread and water. A sick friend of his who suffered from tuberculosis asked to be allowed to buy eggs and other nourishing food for himself and was refused, being ubsequer.Uy subjected to ice-cold bath every day for 15 minutes for two months by the doctor, which killed him.

Mr. Luck said that the Germans realised their losses Tn the war but , they believed that the losses on thej tide ot tr Allle were greater and men Tho National Economy Campaign. I The event ot the week In London has been the oponlng of the National Economy Campaign. The intention wa that In representative assembly at the Guildhall Mr. Asqulth should move a resolution aettlng up the organization which It to work on territorial lines throughout the country. But the Prlmo Minister was detained at home by a cold and his place wa taken by Mr. McKenna. the Chancellor of the Exchequer, with Lord Kitchener and Mr. Balfour as right and left supports. The wondeiful building Is of comparatively unu!I dl-mriimons and the company therefore nuld not compare in numimr wiHi meetings sjch as one Mii.s-line In the VVcat End of J P inion. Rut the Invitations had been arranged with extraordinary care In order to brine; in workers of prominence from many fields and thus In a literal sento of the word th gathering was worthy of the best vitality of tho people. Tho Lord Mayors and Mayors of cities and towns, whilst representatives of such diverse bodies as the Stock Exchanxi and the Sunday School Union, the Baltic Exchange and the Salvation Army, the Primrose League and advanced Uili or Koctetias, were seated side by side. The promoters must indeed, In preparing the programme, have felt a doilcaicy In arranging th tines of precedence for the contrast ing associations whose titles appeared on the paper, but they wero all arranged harmoniously according to their affinities. The speech of Mr McKenna has been -fully reported What struck me most was the advance which this minister has made in the art of expressing exactly and pleasingly what Is needed to bo said at the particular moment. As Hcm. Secretary he was much criticised, though It is due to him to say thut in that department he showed courai even in taking a course of his own In reference to the much vexed Woman' Suffrage question. He came to the treasury to enlarse taxation; Indeed to make it heavier than has been known before, and yet he has sun ceeded In increasing his popularity tn the process. His address at the Guildhall was marked by shrewd disci'imin-ation. He appealed In the first Dluce to those who had never known the need of making any sacrifice to' consider their habits and see what they could do without. Secondly, he ad dresed the large class who have gained in money through the war' either as capitalists or as wage-earner. He spoke with sympathy of the temptation to spend which was in-evltably felt by persons who had never enjoyed the pleasure of handling spare money before and had many yearnings to buy. He pointed out. however, at did Lord Kitchener, that our ready capital and labor are inadequate to supply both the fighting (Concluded on Page Eight) " : For yk i. .....-.....--.-: is. l rn . sr.-- --1 - ilia S i - .l;:-:;:!:'"::'i:'.:.:::v;: -.
