40 In connection with the Food Supply policy of the Government a great many subsidiarv qu est ions are bound to come up for con- sideration, but two points are likely to be persistently pressed upon Mr. Asquith. No cioubt is now entertained in any quarter chat a very much too optimistic view was taker. more than a year ago of cur ability to secure, all the supplies we might require (ronj abroad. The recommendation made by lord Milner's Committee that immtdiate- steps should be taken to encourage the home farmer to increase the wheat crop was turned down in the assurance that the then, submarihe menace was well in hand That may nave been so. and it may be qlllt true- even to day that the Control of Food Supply.- is r-ot necessitated by our losses m tonnage It is the unforeseen" that too oftsn plays. iavoc with the best-laid schemes ar.d, in war, we cannot afford to tukj risks. If the recommendations of the Milner 'Toinnnttee had been acted upon, the resuit on Heme Production would probably not have ii,adc- good the shortage due to the failure of the- North American crop, but it would have- rnit.'gated the situaticn even as thiijgs et.nnd iii'd the outlook for next year would cer tainly ba far mere comforting. The ques- tion now exciting many people is: Will the- Government without any further deiay give an assurance to the British farmer that his- iNb-E-at crop will be taken over at such a. price as to encourage him to go in for a large sowing of wheat for the nex.: harvest The other matter is the shortage of agri- cultural labour. With the country deter- mined to comb out every available man for National Scrvice. the position of tiie farmer is becoming acutc. Why is it that no ciefi- rnte eteips are being taken to utii'se the- labour of German prisoners of vvar us well as the labour of thousands of internee; enemy civilians There will surely be no peace for the Government until a firm declaration is it: regaid to obtaining satisfaction from the enemy for the sinking of merchant ships, contrary to international law. The ton for ton" policy :s unquestionably supported by an overwhelming public opinion as well as by the people more intiiiiateiv ccnc.-rned with oversea trade; nor must the demand for reparation be limited to f'hip for rhir, on a fair money basis The loss of earning capacity at the present is a very serious matter while, of course, the lost cargoes are not inconsiderable. It ia the con/iction of well-informed men that if the Allied Govern- ments made it definitely clear to the enemy tha' no terms of peace would be concluded without stipulating for full compensation ii, this matter of tonnage, there would be a speedy ending to th frightfulness of the Hun in the waterways of the world. If further, as suggested by Lord Beresford, the- British Government threatened to refuse coaling facilities to enemy ships for a term- o! years after the war, men like Ilerr Ballin- would soon deem it prudent to bring their influence to bear on the German Govern- I

On several recent occasions Lord French, in addressing bodies of home defence Volun- teers whom he 'has inspected, has very em- phatically expressed the opinuon that the invasion of this country is one of the I-ritc- tical possibilities of the remaining stages of the war. A few days ago in the remarkable speech which he delivered to a, muster of Yorkshire Volunteers, Lord French r affirmed his opinion on this subject. Do not imagine that the possibility of invasion i« a fable or a fairy tale," he said. "It !s absolutely possible." No men can speak with greater military authority on such a pc.int than Lord French, and the warning is one which tne British nation must take seriously to heart. At any time it would make a strong appeal to all who ought to be on guard behind our shores, and in the present phase of our greatest struggle the appeal is especially urgent. As the later cievelopmeinte of the war are reached, it becomes more and more pressinglv neces- sary for to send to the battlcfronts- abroad every fit anl available man, and in proportion as we do this the duty 0:. the elder men not eligible for that sen ice to boar arms in home defence becomes plair and more imperative. To his own exhortation Load French was able to add a message of high encourage- ment to the Volunteers from His Majesty the King. "I have had the Kmg'e com- mands more than once," caid the Field Marshal at Sheffield. to oonvqjr to the Volunteers on my inspections his Majesty's great appreciation of their loyalty and patriotism. The King appreciates his Volunteers as much as any other portion of his forces." In an earlier address, which he delivered at Nottingham, Lcrd French- had taken pains to impress upon his hearers the fact that Volunteers can make progress in thoroughly useful and practical training for activo service pending the delivery of full equipment, from Government factories The present conditions of fighting have brought into prominence the high import- ance of the machine-gun, the bayonet, and the grenade. Any man who If arm to hacdle EUch weapons dexterously and effect- ively will be putting his lime to the best use whether he does or does not possess the modern efficient rifla with which the military authorities intend to arm the Volunteers as soon as the stress of prior obligations permits So urgent has the neeo of enrollin-f tuffi Cient numbers in the ranks of the Volunteer Corps become that there is a movement among responsible and influential people for the enforcement of compulsory volunteer- Ills" The Spectator," which comHi.inds a hearing among thoughtful people in all th parts of the country, advociitcs this method of meeting our national requirement. In a prominent article in its current issue our contemporary urges that:— N The time has now come wher the- Goverjiment must make all men between forty-one and sixtj-one who are medically fit do wrat the original Volunteers did spontaneously and of their own free will. There must, in a word be compulsory Volunteering. If you have done forty drills with a battalion you are iiot ;t perfect soldier, you are not even the be- ginnings of a fair soldier, but at any rate- you are very much better than a man 111 a half-excited, hall-suspicious, and z, I- gether despairing mob. We wont t,, ituke Volunteering in many ways much easier than .t is now through large Hum- bers ¿ond an efficient system "i .•••••jriniza- tion. But this can do-a nd may indeed say this we can only do-by 1. application of compulsion tc men over military age For our part we believe that the men of the older generations of this country would prefer that history should show ihe success of their spontaneous effort. LE that is to be the record in our annals every man eligible to serve in a volunteer unit ;nd not yet enrolled in one must make the rig-ht retolve and carry it out at once.
