A STRIKING AUSTRIAN TRIBUTE TO BRITISH COLONIES EXERTIONS. The Arbeiter Zeitung," the organ of the Austrian working classes, publishes a leading article on Greater Britain in the War," which shows a keen appreciation of the enormous services rendered to the Empire by the Dominions and Colonies, and of the new bonds of sympathy which the war is creating between the Mother Country and her children. When we are told, says the Arbaiter Zeitung, that Canada is supplying 200,000 men for the British armies a.nd 100,000 muni- tion workers it is reasonable to doubt these g^eat totals. The population of the Minion does nA permit of this effort, but eveu when one strikes out the half of these the undisputed fact remains that what Canada is doing and has done in this war far surpasses alt expectations. I And it is not only Canada. It Í3 Aus- tralia, New Zealand, South Africa and the' met, great territories for which the word I colony" is not the right term. They are md?pendant St?t?g, but of ?.heir own wiil and affection they ?cknow?ed?e the over- kxrdiiup of England. England has not the pow-cr to compel their assistance in war. The conduct of Canaula and Australia in naval matters shows that it is not pos^'bie for England to command their complete unanimity with tile Home Land, but no' controversy which has arisen on those and other subjects between England aud her Dominions, no friction ever caused by- differing points of view has any influence on the powerful sentiment of inward oneness I and inter-connection. A STILL CLOSER UNION FORESHADOWED. TAe Arbeiter Zeitung continues"Al- though the European war which flamed out because of Serbia's action, and whose most Important battles have been fought in Europe, does not in the slightest decree affect the in- terests 01" the security of Canada or Aus- tralia. yet of their own free will these Cana- dians and Australians have shed their blood freely on all battlefields for England. The national feeling, the consciousness of their common mission, bas conquered all cleavage of interest, and the remembrance of the blood which Mother Country and Daughter Coun- tries have fIed toother in a common oaluse )rill create a still oloser union, and will, after Jfoie war is over, contribute to the more wmplete consolidation cf the Imperial edifice )f Greater Britain. A STRIKING TRIBUTE. I "Honwer little the present aspect of the wbr, whose end is not in eight, lancourilges ne to look beyond the war, the lines of develop- ment of the British Empire are cle?r. ether the Engli3h win this war or are de- ?.ted the result will be the strengthening of ke feeling of inter-dependence between Eng- ;nd and her Overseas Dominions, the Itr-ngthening of the feeling that they belong be ,ae another, the founding of a?w imperial &OtBt&Mons for the future." The generosity and ingight, of this article presents a striking contrast to the petty &ggliuc and blindness displayed in the North German Press regarding the relations be-1 tween Britain and her Dominions. It waa only the other day that a leading Conserrar the Journal of Berlin was gloating over the roEPwt of the DominioM withdrawing from W. "sr on the ground that their soldier? wore pushed too frequently into the firing b8.
