Mr. Balfour declared that Germany
blundered when it counted that End-
land and .America were afraid to
enter the. war and estimated the ef
fect as neeheible if they did.

their hopes," he said. "That it the

who voted against the war resolution
and who bad refrained from applause
before that statement, applauded it
"I see a suggestion," continued the
British secretary, "that Germany, in
capable of winning with arms, .is go
ing to win by illegitimate submarine
warfare. I believe it not I do not
minimize the gravity of the submarine
menace; I do not wish to minimize it,
but after all, in two and one-half
yean of war, more than one defect of
like magnitude has been met and over
come." New Epoch in History..
Mr. Balfour declared the missions
of the French and British marked
new epoch in the history of the free
countries of the world and hi the
"alliance thus cemented."
"In it," he continued, lies some of
the greatest hopes, some of the proud
est expectations we dare entertain
"The war isn't going to he settled

" Mortality Not Increased,
"This show that not merely for
the whole period, taken together, but
for every year of it, taken separate
ly, the mortality has been more favor
able than as per the National Frater

likewise has not been heavier, in

: Cause of Despondency.
Despondency it often caused bv in
digestion and constipation and

east of Fresnoy village, held by the
Canadian troops. Our line was pene
trated. The Germans did not long
retain tneir advantage. A counter at
tack was at once organized and after
two hours of sharp fighting the line
occupied before the attack was re
estsblished except for a small pro
jecting angle at the extreme east of
the position. Severe fighting continues
tn tne region about fresnoy.
' Fresnoy is a town on the Arras
front five mile southwest of Lens and
was captured by the Canadians on
May 3. Since the taking of the town
by the British forces the Germans
have made desperate efforts to recap
ture it and the fighting has been al
most continuous on that part of the

The German artillery violently coun

Hurtebise sector and the neighbor

"There were grenade skirmishes
east of Vauxaillon. Elsewhere an
intermitten cannonade occurred."
New York, May Sf Having "failed
in time of peace to prepare for war,
Theodore Roosevelt said in a speech
here tonight, the United States and
the entente allies will "pay for this act
of folly" before the war ends. Mean
while he urged, Americans must bear
themselves manfully in the conflict
"and pay with our blood," sending to
the front as rapidly as possible a great
force of fighting men. -
' Talking to a Brooklyn audience,
members of the King's county repub
lican committee and their guests, the
former president discussed the coun
try's participation in the war in its
military, social and industrial phases.
He suggested incorporation of the un
married men of the National Guard
of the states into regiments filled out
either by the draft or from volunteers
from the exempted classes and the dis.
patch of these men to France or
England for a period of intensive
training preparatory to taking their
places on the tiring line.
Elmlnate Clas Greed.
Colonel Roosevelt emphasized the
necessity for economy and the avoid
ance of waste; said there should be no
improper profit-making, but that rea
sonable profits should not be elimi
nated; discussed methods of financing
tne war, and asserted that the great
problems which confront the nation
could not be solved "in a spirit of class
