THE SPLENDID SPIRIT.

THE SPLENDID SPIRIT. In the little impromptu speech which be made to the vast crowd that assembled in front of Buckingham Palace on Peace Night our future sovereign, the Prince of Wales, stated that he feels sure that "the splendid spirit which has carried us through these last five trying years to a victorious peace will help us in the diffi- cult days that lie ahead of us." It will do more. It will, if it is maintained, supply a solvent to all our troubles and hasten the advent of that general pros- perity with which we hope to grace the new and peaceful age to which we have attained. But it is essential that that splendid spirit" of amity, unity, altruism and constant devotion to the common cause should continue. United We stand and prosper, divided we fall, and those agents of unrest who arc amongst us seeking to promote division Z, are actually conspiring against the peace we have won and the prosperity we intend to gain. It should be the resolve of each one of us to avoid and prevent by all possible means anything that may tend to make for strife. Of that we have had enough and more than enough, and it would be a mockery indeed if the bright vision of Peace as we see it to-day were to dis- appear and the haggard spectre of indus- trial strife and general suffering take its place. A peace charged with hope has been won for the world and, as the Prime Minister pointed out on his return to London, we all helped to do it, and it is because everybody helped that it has been won." Unity, the spirit of concord and co-operation—" the splendid spirit —must now continue until we have established on a firm foundation the new world which has been won by the sacrifices of millions of valiant men." Our thank-offering for being preserved from so many and great dangers must take the form of continued service to the best interests of the nation. We need to get on with our work, to settle down. That, of course, requires a little time, but the intervening period should be as limited as possible. We can look back at the long vista of dark years of misery. They are past. We can look forward to a bright future. The promised land lies ready for us, and I it only needs our labour to bring forth ¡ the kindly fruits of the earth for our en- richment and our advancement. Danger can be avoided, difficulty surmounted, if we devote our united efforts to that end. An active and capable government is using its best energies on our behalf carefully considered and beneficent legis- lation will soon be in operation for the settlement of the greatest of our domestic problems. The rest remains with us, and the key to the future lies, as the Prince of Wales has so rightly said, in the continuance of the splendid spirit by which this victorious peace has been won.
