have to havo a very good farm, In
order to ralso his salary of $1500, per

to 12S, por month. This is twice
as much as tho uvorago farmer clears
por month. I am unwilling to holp sup.
port any olllca without nny stipulated
duty; and an ofllco which can bo dis
pensed with, as our watchword now
is, "Economy." Each farmer has
different-problems to meat and It tak

eliminate all tho surplus offices which
can bo eliminated. Wo need monoy
to buy tilo and farm machinery with

URGES ALLLIE8 TO CONFIDE IN PRESIDENT WILSON;
MINISTER OF PENSIONS WOULD REVEAL TERMS
"President Wilson's appeal (o tho bolllgerents to stato thdlr terms
of ponco Is entitled to all tho respect that can bo shown It, and that
for many reasons," said Mr, Dames, Minister of Pensions, in an ad'
dross at tho Drowning Settlement, Wjalworlh IlOad, London.
"To tako tho lowest reason first," ho continued, "wo are dependont
largely ou America for munitions of war and for tho import of many
things on which our oxlstanco depends. America is tlio other half
of tho English-speaking pcoplo, and It is tho most freoly democratic
country In tho world. America" wants to bo friendly with us, and
1 think wo should cultlvato that friendship and tako tho hand sin
holds out to us. Therefore I welcome that appeal by the President
and I want to uso it in such a way as to develop tho existing friend
ship which I hopo will always exist.
Kl should like to sco something dono in the way of making our
general terms, or tho general objects for which wo aro in this war,
more widely known to the American people. Wo should go. further
than sending people over to America, Wo should accept tbo Invita
tion of tho American President to toll him, at any rate, what our terms
or objects are. Whether they should bo made public is another
matter.' 1 should let the- President be under no misapprehension as
to our general objects, positive and negative, and I attach as much
importance to tho ono as to tho othor.
"Ho should bo assured that tills country is not ono to smash tho
Germans, Germany, or any ono or anything except military power and
military pride. Wo aro out to smash that, and we aro out to smash
it not only in Germany,, we aro out to smash it everywhere, so that
this war may, if possible, bo tho last of all wars.
"1 think he may be told of our ncgativo objects and assured that
wo havo no Idea in this war of increasing our territory or power,
or anything of tho kind. Wo should ceaso to talk to the President
in rhetorical terms. To him weipught to be a little more exploit,
and we ought to tell him in precise, matter-of-fact proposition what
wo wont before wo can start to talk about poaco terms or enter into
