war and what we aim to achieve." Mr.
Lansing continued. "(Je has named

Caaada Gives Greeting.
The Duke of Devonshire, Governor
General of Canada, spoke briefly. Referring-
to the relatlonsbetween Great
Britain and the United States he said:
"Connected as we are by closer associa
tions and ties we have special reason
to greet you as comrades In arms.
Sincerely as we appreciate the Invalu
able assistance you have given In all
material directions, ' what we really
value to the highest degree is the
knowledge that you have mads our
cause your own.
"Much has been done, but we all
recognize that still further and more
strenuous efforts are needed and i hope
you will accept the assurance from me
that we In Canada are In to the rfinlsh."
Jules J. Jusserand, the French Am
bassador to the United States, said in
his address It was not the word
"peace," but the word "conditions" to
which attention should be paid at this
time, for It is the conditions which
must be won by Germany's enemies.

fort to the sea. the watch Is kept: the

but on the move. While the en

struction, that he may have bled white
one or the other of us, it turns out that
we have extra divisions to spare and
we can offer a helping hand to a dear

our work, and to finish it well, so that
It need never be done again. .
