SATU RPAT NOVEMBER 2, 191S The Terms of Turkey's Surrender TERMS accorded Turkey under the armistice signed on Thursday enow that Turkey ku thrown herself completely on the mercy of the Allies. Turkish forces are at once to be demobilized. Turkish vessels surrendered, strategic points to be occupied by the Allies, military supplies of all kinds to be placed at their disposal, Austrlans and Oer - . tn k. derjorted at once, the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus to be opened, and all Allied prisoners of war released. " These terms might form the basis of the terms to be imposed on Germany. Only the Allies will prob - ably require still greater safeguards from the Hun. The Turks may be trusted to carry out their agreement; but the Germans cannot be. The Versailles conference, however, knows Its business and the Boche. It will not err on the eld of leniency. Our New Mercantile Fleet THE Dominion Government' mercantile Iieet, contracts for which are Bow being let, will be operated In conjunction with the national rail way system. This means that canaaa wm nave a 14,000 - mile land transportation system united to a trans - Atlantic and trans - Pacific steamship service. When the fleet Is built, a traveller can journey from Liverpool to Vladivostok upon Canadian Government ships and Canadian Government railways, or nearly half way around the globe. What this will mean to Canadian export and import trade In the future can hardly be realized now. Vancouver, as Canada's strategic trade baae on the Pacific, must benefit enormously. One of the Men Who Started the War I T will be a pity If the news proves true that Count Ttsza, ex - prcmler of Hungary, has been ssaeslnated. Next to the kaiser, he was the one tan in Europe who deserved to be hanged by the Miles. Count Tisza's cabinet fell from power in Hungary a May 24 last year. It was then freely said that ' :ie German emperor and the Hungarian ex - premler ere the two outstanding figures amongst the , olltlcal leaders of the Central Powers. Count Tlsza was at once pro - Hungarian and pro - erman. He was committed all his life to the alntenance of Magyar tyranny and the support the corrupt oligarchy which under more or less iraocratic forms misgoverned the country. At the .me time he was the sworn friend of Germany id sought to carry out the pan - German policy side side with the glorification of Hungary. He helped to force the war on Serbia. He is . Sieved to have at least connived at the murder f the Archduke and Archduchess at Serajevo. And e certainly played the game of the Potsdam junta xithfully and well. Behind the scenes he was the lain factor that prevented Sir Edward Grey's .lost strenuous efforts for peace succeeding. It la a pity if Count Tlsa should have died by he hand of an assassin. The noose of Justice ould have fittingly closed his career. bia has disclosed several poets and authors of ability. To join this noble company on the Bookshelf arrives "Songs of an Airman and Other Poems," by Hartley Munro Thomas, of the Royal Air Force (McClelland, GoodchiM and Stewart, Ltd., Toronto). The writer is the son of the Hev. Ernest Thomas, of Vancouver. His poems describe the experiences of those who go up in the sky in airships and see the wonders of the great deep of heaven. " In attempting a criticism of such poems a local reviewer at once faces a dilemma. Either he must be uncritically appreciative of local talent or he must apply the high tests of imaginative literature and point kindly, but inexorably to where he sees failure as well as success. . . . The law of honor for the critic Is obvious. Besides which promise and talent may bo as readily wrecked by indiscriminate praise us by injudicious condemnation. "Songs of an Airman" shows undoubted imaginative power. The writer has felt keenly the Joy of speed, the intoxicating freedom of the Upper Air, which has been conferred, since the world began, alone upon this generation. He strives to incorporate that greut experience in verse. And in a measure altogether creditable to him, he largely succeeds. For example: The caves of shadowed cloud opening to receive us there Under downy cliffs, and proud Tall pinnacles of silvered air, Lead to dominions undefined By border framed in mortal mind The air - world! None But airmen live 'twixt cloud and sun. We are not as the rest. Counting life by wealth or tears; We upon the storm - cloud's breast. Are aged by hours, not years. There we're measured by the foe We've conquered. One may lay us low Forever. None May fall and live 'twixt cloud and sun. This is a genuine exercise of the poetic faoulty and there are many stanxas equally as good throughout the book. In some of the poems, how ever, it must be said in the interests of fair appraisal, the author writes prose unconsciously. Such a line as "And even the clouds are dump" is not poetry, but bathos. And such a stanza as this shows bad workmanship: Great is the land who has given her children. Pride in their birth and the courage to stand Till rended and torn and destroyed in the heavens, They mingle their dust with the soil of their land. The faults in the poems, however, are the faults of a literary craftsman using his tools with facility, but not always sure of what he is seeking to create. He does not agonize for the 'Perfect Phrase, for instance. He does not describe his air experiences from the objective point of view exclusively or from the subjective exclusively, but mixes the two. And occasionally he forces the sense to make the rhyme. Nevertheless, these poems are poems of promise. The writer of them has In him the stuff of real poetry. It he will study more deeply the tone and the color of words, compress his thoughts more closely, keep a definite poetic objective always before him and seek after felicitous expression as fervently aa the airman seeks the lonely spaces of the eky, he may yet do notable work. e A new world has been opened to the poet by the airplane. A new vocabulary Is needed to tell us of the piled glories of the clouds seen as the eye of the sun sees them eternally and of the vast Prairies of the Air where Man and Earle meet and pass, the one, after long striving, become at length co - regnant with the other. The Doets of the future will be the poets of the air. And those like our author, already enfranchised of the heavens, have mighty opportunities as pioneers of this unexplored region. a. C. C. A Dream That Has Vanished THREE years ago, less four days, troops of the Teutonic alliance captured Nlsh and opened the railway to Constantinople. Within a few weeks the Berlin - Constantinople Express left the former city amidst delirious applause from the whole German people and press. The long - desired route from Hamburg to the Persian Gulf was open, at any rate to Bagdad. Yet another milestone on the way to World - Power had been passed. ' "Hamburg to the Persian Gulf" represented to the German mind more than non - Germans ever appreciated. That line of steel meant not only the domination of the Balkans, but a threat to the British in Egypt and in India. Along it troops were sent to Palestine and Mesopotamia. By means of It Greece, through her traitrous king, was all but forced into the Teutonic alliance. Its possession held Roumanla neutral. It gave . German U - boats the freedom of the Black Sea, It was the visible embodiment of the drsng nach Oaten. Today, what of It? Gone like German honor, like a scrap of paper. The Allie are back In Nlsh; the Turks and Bulgars have surrendered. The Czecho - Slovaks have cut the line between Vienna and Berlin. Gone are the Napoleonic dreams of Oriental empire. , Gone the long - planned and plotted schemes of world - power. The Hamburg - Persian Gulf express has become the Hamburg - Schandau express. Like German ambitions for the next hundred years, it begins and ends In Germany. . The Task of the Newspapers. THE task of the newspapers in the present Victory Loan campaign is much greater than was the case last year. The closing of pulpit and platform, on account of the Influenza epidemic, leaves the printed word the only method of collective solicitation and appeal.. This robs the campaign of the support of large assemblies, the multiplied influence of hundreds of pulpits, and that element of insistent repetition which is so Important in establishing an argument. The new responsibility thus imposed upon the press of British Columbia has been cheerfully accepted, and the columns of the papers thrown open generously for that purpose. To date three times aa much space has been given this year as last, and this In the fare of a sharp limitation on toe use of white paper, by government ordinance. i The (In Initial showing has been made pos - slble, subject to the splendid organization and the individual seal of the canvassers, by the noteworthy work of the press. ' A JTEW BOOK BY MRS. NELLIE McCLClfG Thomas Allen, of Toronto, announces a new book by Mrs. McClung. It Is a war story "Three Times and Out" and will have a special Interest to people of this province because it deals with the adventures of a man who enlisted at Trail and escaped from a German prison on the thirq" attempt A number of familiar Vancouver names appear, and Mr. Allan says the book was eagerly snapped up by a Boston publisher. He predicts a big sale. and Christian Scientists have accepted that statement, but neither Mrs. Eddy nor anyone before or since has proved matter to be error. If we are to believe the Bible, Jesus created matter when he fed the multitude out in the desert, also when he restored the man's withered arm. Does anyon suggest that Jesus created error. In each case Jesus just knew the truth, the right idea, "Supply": the false belief, "lack" vanished and tho necessary symbol appeared. Mrs. Eddy made the greatest discovery In modern history when she discovered that harmonious ideas are the real substance and that these ideas are sustained by principle. But when she separated harmonious ideas from matter she should also have separated inharmonious ideas or beliefs from matter. Matter Is symbol, as Herbert Spencer suggested. The teaching that matter is error, and hence unreal, Is an ridiculous as to teach a child that figures urfi error. If a child snys 4 plus 5 is 7. what teacher would say 4 plus S Is error, rub It out quickly? Would he not rather say the belief that 4 plus 5 is 7 is error. Then proceed to teach the child that 4 plus 5 conveys the Idea "9"? If matter is error a clear realization of Its nothingness should cause it to vanish. Who would take his child to a practitioner if this were liable to happen? That inharmony Is error and hence unreal Is proven every day, but this no more proves matter to be error than the correction of a mistake in mathematics proves the figures to be error.

Forty - Year - old Men With Fourteen - Year - Old Brains U tienrra Maltha A - - ma.' 0 a o o e The time has come, the Walrus said, To talk of many things. Lewis Carroll Hastings Street, Oct 2, 1918. WITH much pleasure I have read an "Anthology of Canadian Poetry," also a collection of "Sea Poems," and Mr. John Ridington's lecture on The Poetry of the War." It seems to me, to use that popular phrase, that I shall soon have ma terlal for an "Anthology of 'Flu' Poems." They pour in upon me so fast and furious that I am already beginning to sneeze. Don't be alarmed, gentle reader. The World's Window is always kept right open, and I am penning these lines In the early morning before the other microbes have begun' to stir. Here is "W. H. S.' a contribution to my anthology from THAT WHICH HATH YVES' GS A novel by Richard Penan. S. B. Gundy, Toronto; $1.50. Richard Dehan's new novel is a sequel to "The Dop Doctor," and many of the characters dear to the readers of that famous story reappear upon the stage. The action commences in June, 1914, and one of the early episodes tells how the son of the Don Doctor and Lynette. a lad of 12, is whisked away from home and friends to a wireless station In East Friedland, where the malign spirit of tne man who conjured up the World War is seen brooding on the eve of the day's dawning. How young Bawne Saxham escapes from the hands of the Boche to play his part In the war; how Sherbrand of the Royal Flying Corps wins his spurs and meets with disaster, and how the flower of triumphant love blooms for him upon the scorched and shell - torn soil of Belgium, is told in the story - There are many minor characters and side - issues. Letters to The Editor The World takes no responsibility for any opin ion expressed in letters to the Editor. No letter lacking name and address. FOR publication. will be considered. Owing to the world - wide paper shortage the editor is compelled to notify all correspondents that he can find space only for brief letters on matters of public importance. The editor reserves the right to abbreviate letters for which space cannot otherwise be found. A DAXGEROt'S PRACTICE. To the Editor of The World: Sir People suffering from influenza have been calling at the offices of doctors In the city asking for treatment. This Is a dangerous practice. I would strongly recommend everyone suffering from a cold to remain at home and first apply ordinary remedies. If these do not give relief let them call in a doctor at once. Yours, etc., ERNEST P. FEWSTER.' M.D. Vancouver, November 2, 1911.. From a Canadian Bookshelf WILL ih great the years that follow the end of the great war oe years or plenty in i.unadian literature? If one is to juage by present signs one would emphatically say ".' Hardly a month ajuiara but a novel or a volume of verse cornea from aonte Canadian publisher. Already British njluni - A CRITIC OP LABOR To the Editor of The World: Sir, I notice with satisfaction from an editorial in today's issue, that a reduction in the size of The World Is imminent, if for no other reason than its pages will be purged of the prolific rubbish that comes from the pen of Walter Foster. The Uuwn of a new era is at hand, and nowhere will It be more pronounced than in the industrial world. The relations between capital and labor in the near future will be revolutionized: In fact, is even now rapidly changing. It will take time, but the consummation of industrial peace will be just as sure and stable at no very distant date, as the peace between the nations will be before the Allies leave Europe. It will take the bei brain and highest intelligence on both sides to bring it into effect, but it will be done. It ts the vaporings of such men as Walter Foster that act as obstructions in the cogs of the wheels of progress. In fighting the liquor traffic you fought for a great principle and denied yourself many thousands in revenue. I, too. for a like principle, will deny myself the pleasure that 1 always get when reading your paper, especially the editorial page, with Its many and varied interesting items, if I cannot do so without encountering an article giving expression to such sentiments that his letters always contain. This is an age of thoughtful construction, not egotistical, sneering and destructive criticism. Yours, etc., LIONEI WARD. 2030 Kitchener street, Nov. 1, 1918. . WHLTHKR MATTER SIATTERS To the Editor of The World: Sir, In your issue of October 10. Mr. Greenwood takes exception to my assertion that Christian Scientists "having no conception of what matter Is. they rail it 'nothing'." If by. that I mean "that Christian. Science Imparts no scientific knowledge of what matter is." Mrs. Eddy teaches that "matter is mortal error," A SPANISH FLIT - LAY Though Beauty's eyes may brightly beam With love in every glance, Tet Beauty's lips are seldom seen And Cupid has no chance: For westward borne upon the breeze Come unromantic germs. And naught is heard but sneeze and sneeze Where'er a body turns. Disconsolate, along the streets Man walks, oppressed with care. And hopeless scans the crowd he meets To find his lady falre; For swathed in white from ear to ear She braves the dreaded flu. And. as she greets each unknown dear - She answers "A - KA - CHOO:" But soon perhaps the flu will go And masks be put away. And all the bills Dan Cupid ewes On ruby lips he'll pay. And then from Bank and Farm and Store A paen of joy will rise. Denied a while Love grows the more And Beauty's lips we'll prize. Quite an old - time touch about that see Here is another. What It lacks In daintiness it makes up In realism: W W W About this thing "Flu" Beg pardon, ker choo I think it is nothing but grippe At - choo, oh, at - cheer You must excuse me; Now here is my tip - It is not the Flu Oh. goodness, ker choo But just a big scare . Like they have everywhere, A regular big bug - a - boo. At - choo, at - chee, chce Just listen to me, I'm getting a cold In my head. To resume about "Flu," Oh,' goodness, ker choo So much I have read About tho disease 'Scuse me while I sneeze At - choo, at - chee, chee, Ker choo, oh, dod rot it At - chee, choo, at - chee, By golly, I've got it e And'yet another which halls from Ocean Falls, and may take its place among "Historical Ballads." in an seriousness my readers will do well to cllD these pomes for their scrapbooks. In years to come, when Science has banished disease and men will be so healthy that they will not die until they have been soaked long In warm water, these scraps will be read with interest: There's a place called Ocean Falls, Where It rains most every day. And we work like h , and eat and sleep To carp our monthly pay. And then we cannot spend it, 'Cause there's nothing there to buy, So we simply have to save it Till we leave the place or die. It's a pretty little village. Sandwiched In between two hills, Made up of a store, and houses, A hotel and the paper mills. One cannot go astray there, For temptations there are none, And if one is not married He doesn't have much fun. But everything was peaceful Until some days ago. The Spanish Influenza came And, this you ought to know: It laid out fifty workmen Before a week was past. And many more are catching it The germs spread round so fast So all are In a turmoil And filling up with dope. ' To try and keep from having it This Is their only hope. And everyone is nervous, They don't know what to do. They act as though they're crazy but They're "Fluie got the Flu!" I have Just room to say: "Remember the dumb animals today; it is Tag Day for the 8. P. C. A." Every true Briton loves a horse and a dog, and most of us, like Thomson und Cowper, the poets,, love the "harmless, necessary cat" Drop your mite in the box. The world Is full of suffering just now. If we can only lessen it in the smallest way we are "Uoin' our bit" p, p. The world is full of children walking around as men and women undeveloped wanderers' feeding upon tho developed resources of those who grew with their years. It's a good deal like this; the initiators are those who rule the world. All others are mere tenants and Janitors boys living in the houses built by men men doing the jobs of boys. There Is only one thing that develops the mind, and that Is to think! It's the mind that leads the legs, that tolls the hands what to do, that guides the eyes to the beautiful and to the masterful works .of munklnd. It's the brain the heart the soul that makes the man. And not the body. But the stronger the mind and the heart and the soul the more "like a god" Is the body - shell that carries a man around and leads him to his tasks. In spirit ever be the boy, with his rollicking regard for Joy but never forget that to play the man is to play the Job of life. If you have a fourteen - year - old - brain, take It In hand today, and train it prod it to its fullest ability and grow to your years.

German artillery was employed In continued bombardment east of Yprea Another German air raid on London but it turned out a oomplete failure. British airmen were very successful in an air raid on munition factories in Bavaria. In 1914 the Russians continued pro gress towards the German border of Poland. In 1915 a small committee of dis tinguished ministers was formed In Great Britain to take charge of the conduct of. the war. In 1916 Fort Vaux was evacuated by the Germans.

"Victory is In our grasp," the commissioner said. "Central Europe is crumbling, but the word I should like to speak is not a word of exultation, but of warning." Concerning peace problems, Sir Henry said that one of the first steps should be the perfecting of an "economic association" of the 24 allied nations, which in effect already Is in existance and an agreement on economic principles to be applied In the relations of such an association, . .a - .
